HOBOKEN — Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla signed an executive order on Wednesday to ensure the full earned salary of city employees on parental leave by supplementing weekly wages provided through New Jersey Family Leave Insurance.The state insurance program pays up to two thirds of a person’s salary with a cap at $637 per week. Bhalla’s executive order will have the city make up the difference, allowing city employees to receive their full wages while on parental leave.“This is a common-sense policy,” said Bhalla in a press release. “A family’s expenses go up after having a child, so helping our employees maintain their income level while caring for a baby is good for the child, good for our employees, and good for the community.”Anna Seguinot, the legal secretary in Hoboken’s Office of Corporation Counsel, is expecting her first child and was present for the executive order signing.“I want to thank Mayor Bhalla for signing this executive order,” said Seguinot, “as it now allows me to focus on being a new mom and not on whether I am going to be able to pay my bills during my maternity leave.”Ryan Sharp, director of Transportation and Parking, is expecting his second child and was also present.“It was tough after our first child, trying to cobble together vacation and sick time to care for my newborn,” said Sharp. “This is a huge step forward for Hoboken caregivers, because it’s so important to spend time bonding with a baby and being there for the milestones. I’m proud to work for a city that looks out for its employees.”To be eligible, a person must have served as a full-time city employee for at least one year at the time of applying for Paid Parental Leave. The employee must also be approved for the Family Medical Leave Act or the New Jersey Family Leave Act as well as the Family Leave Insurance provision of the NJ Temporary Disability Benefits Law or subsequent amendments, and they must not have used this benefit within a 12-month period. ×

DECATUR COUNTY, Ind. — Lightning is being blamed for a fire that destroyed a small barn late last week.Fire officials say that crews were called to 2497 East County Road 400 South, south of Greensburg around 11:00 AM Thursday morning.When firefighters arrived on the scene, they found a small barn that was still burning, but had already burned to the ground.Firefighters quickly extinguished the remaining flames. Officials say the barn, owned by Dale Riedeman, was primarily used for storage.
Press Association He added: “I haven’t spoken to Luis yet. He was back late yesterday and we just ran the medical team over him and he trained this morning. “All I am aware of is we have an outstanding player who has given everything for the club and he is very happy here. “Every time he goes away, there is always something.” Suarez patently did not follow his manager’s rule while in South America and although Rodgers flippantly dismissed the comments, there is no misapprehension that what was said was, indeed, relevant to Liverpool. But the club remain confident they can keep hold of their prize asset – currently the Barclays Premier League’s leading goalscorer – in the face of interest from Europe’s elite. What may go some way to assuaging any concerns Suarez may have may be the progress made in enhancing the Reds’ chances of making a top-four bid next season. Ahead of World Cup qualifiers last week the 26-year-old gave an interview in his homeland which appeared to suggest he would listen to offers from Champions League clubs. The Reds’ managing director Ian Ayre was quick to dismiss the comments as getting lost in translation but Rodgers claims he paid them no attention. He said: “I always say to players I have a simple rule: when you are with Liverpool just talk about Liverpool and when you are away with your international team concentrate on your international team so there is no drama. So what he says when he is with Uruguay is of no great relevance to Liverpool.” Manager Brendan Rodgers brushed off concerns about Luis Suarez’s future by claiming comments made on international duty with Uruguay have “no great relevance to Liverpool”.
