Online petition launched Save the island of Biševo from concreting

first_imgPokrenuto je potpisivanje peticije “Spasimo Biševo od betoniranja”​, a možete ju potpisati hereBespravni građevinski radovi koji se trenutno vrše u neposrednom okolišu crkve sv. Silvestra i unutar međa srednjovjekovnog samostana na otoku Biševu narušavaju ambijentalnost i sklad naselja Poje, svojedobnog centra otoka. Peticijom se traži da Konzervatorski odjel u Splitu izađe na teren i zaštiti ovaj arheološki lokalitet od nasrtaja divlje gradnje Rješenjem o preventivnoj zaštiti.Crkva sv. Silvestra nalazi se unutar skladne mikro-povijesne jezgre naselja Poje na otoku Biševu (zaštićeno kulturno dobro RST-0613-1972). Povijesni izvori svjedoče da se uz crkvu nalazio benediktinski samostan darovan redovnicima s Tremita koji je u punoj snazi djelovao tijekom 12. i 13. st. Nad ostacima je samostana, najvjerojatnije tijekom baroka, nastao omanji građevinski sklop kamenih kuća s vrtom koji zajedno s crkvom čini veoma skladnu ambijentalno-povijesnu cjelinu.  “Ovo je jedini način da upozorimo javnost na grubo kršenje zakona i teror koji se trenutačno vrši nad kulturnom i prirodnom baštinom otoka Biševa. Napominjem kako članak 3. Zakona o zaštiti i očuvanju kulturnih dobara nalaže da kulturna dobra bez obzira na vlasništvo, preventivnu zaštitu ili registraciju uživaju zaštitu prema odredbama predmetnog zakona. Također, upozoravam kako je još iz vremena zadnje konzervatorske obnove crkve, kada su otkriveni čak i starokršćanski slojevi iz 6. stoljeća, ostalo dosta nedovršenog posla sa strane izvođača radova kao što je otvorena grobnica u kojoj se vide kosti itd. Ovim Vas putem još jednom usrdno molim da zajedničkim naporima pridonesemo zaštiti još uvijek netaknutog krajolika i kulturne baštine pučinskog otoka Biševa” ističe pokretač peticije Stjepan Tafra.Spasimo Biševo od betonizacije, a podršku možete dati herelast_img read more

Moorpark to get new police chief

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Sheriff’s Cmdr. Marty Rouse praised Matson for his experience in managing patrol operations and developing and implementing community outreach programs. “He’s kind, approachable and truly cares about the law enforcement mission,” said Rouse, who oversees the Moorpark station. “His real strength is forging partnerships.” Most recently, Matson, who will make about $118,000 a year in his new position, was the captain for East County Patrol Services, where he supervised 61 deputies and 10 sergeants. “He has some big shoes to fill,” City Councilman Clint Harper said. “We’re going to miss Dick Diaz tremendously … He walks on water as far as everyone in Moorpark is concerned.” The appointment comes two months after the city opened the $11 million Police Services Center, which houses both sheriff’s deputies and California Highway Patrol officers. MOORPARK – A longtime sheriff’s officer with a commitment to community policing has been named Moorpark’s next police chief and will return to the city he used to patrol. Capt. Jeff Matson, who has 23 years’ service with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, assumes control of the station on Spring Road on March 26. He succeeds Capt. Dick Diaz, who is retiring after a 36-year law enforcement career. “It’s almost like coming home,” said Matson, 53, of Simi Valley, who once worked as a patrol officer in Moorpark. “It’s a dream job.” Matson will oversee 40 officers, half of whom are responsible for the 36,000-resident city – one of the safest in the county. The city contracts for its police services with the Sheriff’s Department.
