The development of tourism, in addition to numerous benefits, necessarily brings with it certain consequences such as a significantly increased volume of waste left by tourists to hosts, increased consumption of water, detergents, spatial usurpation and a number of other undesirable consequences. Tourism in Croatia generates almost 20 percent of GDP and in this respect represents a significant economic branch. With higher sales of domestic food in tourism, furniture and other inputs, tourism would generate the development of certain industries that certainly have room for growth. When we talk about tourism in protected areas, we must expect strong growth with great caution. With its 8 national parks and 11 nature parks, Croatia is an “oasis” of Europe. Plitvice Lakes National Park is, along with Dubrovnik, the strongest Croatian brand. However, there are other national parks such as NP Krka, NP Brijuni and NP Mljet, which indicate the number of visitors from year to year that Croatia, except for the beautiful sea and beaches, is widely recognized for its protected areas. Continental parks each year show a growing interest in visiting, both locals and world visitors. After the introduction, a presentation on the topic of protection of natural areas through responsible tourism development is planned, which will be held by Izidora Marković Vukadin from the Institute of Tourism. Such points are the basis for the development of continental tourism, and since for some Parks this is just the beginning, it is the right time to point out the necessary model of sustainable tourism development that includes environmental care, cooperation with local producers and promotion of natural and cultural heritage. Plitvice Lakes National Park on Tuesday, May 14.05.2019, XNUMX. at the Hotel Jezero, organizes the Conference “Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas of the Republic of Croatia”, which will host experts in the field of sustainable tourism. Two panel discussions will follow the conference. Gari Cappelli, Tomislav Ćorić, Tomislav Kovačević and Assistant Minister of Culture Davor Trupković will take part in the first panel discussion entitled “Framework for the Development of Sustainable Tourism”.

MASON CITY — A Mason City man’s lascivious acts with a child conviction has been affirmed by the Iowa Court of Appeals. 59-year-old Patrick Holt was arrested in January of last year after being accused of molesting a girl under the age of 12 at his home in the 1400 block of North Federal. The girl reported the alleged abuse to authorities in June of 2017, saying that Holt touched her sexually and showed her pornography three or four years ago. A Cerro Gordo County jury convicted Holt after a three-day trial, with District Judge James Drew sentencing him to ten years in prison after denying a motion to overturn the conviction and a request for a new trial. Holt appealed his conviction, saying the court erred in denying him a new trial, that his counsel was ineffective for failing to object to testimony from an expert witness, that the court erred by instructing the jury on general and specific intent, and that the court abused its discretion in issuing the sentence. The Court of Appeals in their ruling did not agree with any of Holt’s issues and affirmed the conviction and sentence.
