Wales coach Wayne Pivac has praised the flanker and said he has a bright future in a red jersey.He said: “In training, he is a very balanced player.

Pike County poor house offered a place of refuge

first_img Fannie Lou Ammons did most of the cooking and washing for the residents. The residents had their meals in “the big house.” Josh Ammons took care of the other needs of the complex. A garden, a chicken yard and hog parlor were necessities.“The residents were well taken care of but many of them were elderly and some were sickly and a lot of them died,” Roling said. “The graveyard was there off Knox Street and, if I’m right, there were about 80 graves in it.”A graveyard could be found nearby any poor house because most of the residents were elderly or in poor health or both.Because most of the residents didn’t have family to arrange their burial, they were buried in unmarked graves. By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Submitted PhotoIn the early part of the 20th century, traveling photographers would go around the countryside taking family photographs. The photographs were often taken in front of the family home. This photograph of the Ammons family was taken in front of the Pike County Poor House on Knox Street in Troy. Josh Ammons and Fannie Lou Ammons operated the poor house for about six years.Back in the 1920s, those who were living a rather comfortable life called the complex on Knox Street in Troy the county home.The residents, however, called it the poor house and that was, perhaps, a better description.The Pike County Poor House was built around the early part of the decade and was dedicated for use by those who could not take care of themselves, primarily the elderly so going to the poor house was not as shameful as one might think. Roling said there was little entertainment for the residents of the poor houses and few activities in which they could participate.“Most of what the residents did was sit on the porch and play checkers or dominoes,” he said.Those who went to the poor houses in the early 1920s and 1930s weren’t all elderly people. Sometimes, a man just couldn’t make his way. Other times, a man’s wife died and her husband was left with children he couldn’t care for or a man died and left his wife with children to care for.Roling said, from time to time, there were probably children at the poor house in Troy but most of the time, relatives would remedy those situations.“If it had not been for poor houses a lot of people would have had nowhere to go,” he said. “As bad as it sounds, going to the poor house was not as bad as having no where to go.” “The county homes or poor houses were the forerunners of our nursing homes,” said Jim Roling, whose grandparents, Josh and Fannie Lou Ammons were administrators of the county home in Troy for five or six years. “There were actually several houses in the complex. One was for the administrators and there was a house for the men and one for the women. Those were called dormitories. Of course, there were several out buildings on the grounds. It was a well-kept place.”Roling said most of those who circumstances brought them to the poor house were people who had no family or whose family could not or would not take care of them.“Times were hard and sometimes it took all a man could do to keep food on the table for his family,” he said. “I’m sure that some of those in the poor houses were not in good health but, for the most part, they were just old and alone.” Sponsored Content Email the author Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By The Penny Hoarder Pike County poor house offered a place of refuge Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Book Nook to reopen Print Article You Might Like Preparations underway county-wide for school year upcoming Charles Henderson High senior Sierra Murphy looks at photos from her senior portrait photo shoot.

HR should help ensure firms are fit for upturn

first_img Comments are closed. It is inevitable that as the jobs market and the economy improve, staffturnover rates will rapidly grow, as an increasing number of careeropportunities become available to employees. Signs of an upturn are beginning to appear. The Report on Jobs by Deloittefinds there has been a notable improvement in the UK job market since August.Employers are returning to the market to take advantage of good staffavailability and subdued rates of salary growth. As a result, HR will face twoissues: how to ensure talent is retained, and how to attract the talentbecoming available on the job market. Losing a worker on £15,000 a year can cost the business another £15,000 inrecruitment and induction costs, and loss of productivity. For a businessemploying 5,000 workers, with a staff turnover of 15 per cent, costs can amountto £11.25m a year. Some skills cost more to replace; a sales person earning£39,000, could cost the company £300,000. And then there is also the lessquantifiable issue of disruption to the teams, loss of knowledge and loweremployee morale. So why is turnover expected to rise so dramatically? During the pasttwo-and-a-half years, businesses have been forced to cut costs to staycompetitive in difficult conditions. Staff experienced cuts in bonuses,training and development. Businesses that had over-staffed during strong marketconditions have found it necessary to make large cuts to their workforces. Tough economic conditions mean employers had to achieve more with less,creating a pressured work environment. Now, business must work to rebuild trustby creating employee commitment to the company’s management and leadershipstyle. Staff do not necessarily understand why the job market dropped; theyonly witnessed it in terms of what they lost during the cutbacks. Commitment is created by communicating and delivering on company ideals,values and objectives. Employees need to understand the strategy behindapparently negative moves such as cost cuts, and the benefits that will arisefrom them. The Institute of Employment Studies’ survey of graduates establishes whatmotivates them to stay with their organisations. Nearly all rank training anddevelopment as the most important, followed by mentoring/coaching andcareer/salary progression. For managers, the statistics are more or less similar:job content, career development, company environment and remuneration havealmost equal weightings of importance. Learning and development was one of themain areas that suffered during the downturn, and as businesses begin tobenefit from improving conditions, it is vital that it is reinvested in. As the economy improves, HR can play a key role in ensuring that businessesare fit to take advantage of new opportunities to move ahead of thecompetition. New external career opportunities will inevitably arise and tempttalented staff. But as long as HR recognises the skills that are crucial tobusiness performance, and how to attract and retain the right staff, it canensure the challenges in the war for talent are overcome.
