HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SilverBow Resources, Inc. (NYSE: SBOW) (“SilverBow” or the “Company”) today announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has unanimously adopted a rights plan term shareholder rights plan (the “Rights Plan”) to protect the interests of all shareholders. The Rights Plan is effective immediately.

The Board adopted the Rights Plan in response to recent large accumulations of portions of SilverBow’s outstanding common stock. The Rights Plan is similar to other rights plans adopted by public companies and is intended to promote the fair and equal treatment of all shareholders. The rights plan is designed to enable all shareholders of the Company to realize the long-term value of their investment and is intended to protect SilverBow and its shareholders against the efforts of a single shareholder or a group to obtain control. of the Company without paying a control premium.

Marcus C. Rowland, Independent Chairman of the Board, said, “SilverBow’s Board of Directors is committed to acting in the best interests of all shareholders of the company and will continue to take actions which we believe , will generate long-term value. We want investors to realize the full value of their investment and to receive fair and equal treatment, which the rights plan is designed to ensure.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS PLAN

Rights will only be exercisable if a person or group acquires 15% or more of the outstanding common shares of the Company. Each right will entitle shareholders to purchase one thousandth of a new series of participating junior preferred shares at an exercise price of $160.00.

If a person or group acquires 15% of the outstanding common shares of the Company, each right will entitle its holder (other than such person or members of such group) to purchase for $160.00, a certain number of common shares of the Company having a market value of twice that value the price. In addition, at any time after a person or group has acquired 15% of the outstanding common shares of the Company, the board of directors of the Company may exchange one common share of the Company for each outstanding right (other than the rights held by that person or group, which would have become void).

Prior to the acquisition by any person or group of beneficial ownership of 15% of the common shares of the Company, the rights are redeemable for one cent per right at the option of the Board of Directors.

Certain synthetic interests in securities created by derivative positions – whether or not such interests are considered to constitute beneficial ownership of the underlying common stock for reporting purposes under Regulation 13D of the Securities Exchange Act – are treated as the beneficial ownership of the number of shares of the Common Shares of the Company equivalent to the economic exposure created by the derivative position, to the extent that the actual shares of the Company are held directly or indirectly by counterparties to the derivative contracts.

The dividend distribution will be made on October 5, 2022, payable to shareholders on that date and is not taxable to shareholders. The Rights will expire on the earlier of (i) the close of business on the first day following the date of the first annual meeting of shareholders of the Company following the date of the Rights Plan and (ii) June 30, 2023, unless the rights are refunded or exchanged sooner.

A copy of the shareholder rights plan will be contained in a Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

THUNGELA SIGNS THREE-YEAR WAGE AGREEMENT

Thungela announces that it has signed a three-year wage agreement with the National
Union of Mineworkers (‘NUM’) which is the recognised labour union across Thungela’s
operations, and which represents 86% of unionised employees. This agreement
enables the implementation of a new wage agreement across Thungela’s operations,
other than Mafube which runs an independent wage negotiation process. The
agreement is effective from 1 June 2022 and covers a period of three-years through to
the end of May 2025.

The wage agreement increases salary and salary-related allowances and is expected to
increase the total labour cost-to-company, on average by approximately 6% per annum
over the three-year period.

Under the agreement, Thungela and the NUM also commit to engaging the board of
trustees of the SACO Employee Partnership Plan Trust (‘EPP’) to review and amend
the trust deed to enable the payment of awards made to the EPP in the same financial
year in which they are declared, as opposed to vesting over a period of three years.

July Ndlovu, CEO of Thungela, commented: ‘We are very pleased to have reached an
agreement with our employees and I thank the NUM for their collaboration and
constructive engagement during the wage negotiation process. The agreement
recognises the important role that our employees have in responsibly creating value
together for a shared future.’

Earlier this month, I read with interest the national plebiscite in Chile to determine whether or not to approve a new political convention, drafted by Chile’s Constitutional Convention in 2020 (it was rejected). I’m always a bit constitutionally conscious in September, because the 17th is the annual observance of the US Constitution and Citizenship Day, commemorating the signing of the US Constitution in 1787. Over the past few years, I hosted The Constitution Out Loud, a round-robin public reading of the document and its amendments, in the atrium of Washington State University’s Terrell Library (well, except for 2020 when we ‘ve read on Zoom, of course). This year we read it on Friday the 16th (or will have read it, since I’m typing this before it happens). Additionally, I also have an asynchronous option – an annotated copy of the Constitution is available at the Terrell Library until the end of next week for readers to read and mark what they have read so someone else can continue it. Copies of the Constitution are also available for anyone interested, at least until I run out.

The reading of the Constitution and its amendments is interesting. Some of them are totally outdated and bogged down in detail, and some of them are seemingly ripped from the headlines. Like virtually all college libraries and many public libraries, WSU libraries have many books on the Constitution, how it was written (including the influence of Native American ways of thinking), how it was interpreted and reinterpreted, and how she let so many people down. years, including women, Native Americans, African Americans and others. But the Constitution is not a static document; it is a living document. Over the past 235 years it has been amended, starting with the Bill of Rights, and made more inclusive. My friend, Ben Calabretta, is the acting director of WSU’s Center for Civic Engagement, and after reading it last year, he tweeted something that really touched me: “I read the constitution today. It’s not a perfect document, but I understand that we have a way to change it through amendments. Forming a more perfect union will always be a work in progress.

I would like to share some Constitution Day resources that may be of interest to students, teachers, homeschoolers, and those of us who are committed to lifelong learning. I’ll start with the official Constitution Day website (constitutionday.com) which has some basic resources, but other sites have a lot more information and are more educationally focused.

The Northwest BC Resource Benefits Alliance (RBA), made up of 21 local governments from Masset to Vanderhoof, has been asking British Columbia for a new funding agreement since 2014.

The provincial government has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Northwest BC Resource Benefits Alliance (RBA), bringing them closer to a new revenue-sharing agreement.

The RBA, made up of 21 local governments from Masset to Vanderhoof, has been asking British Columbia for a new funding deal since 2014.

“I am delighted that we are one step closer to an agreement by signing this memorandum of understanding. A finalized agreement will be a game-changer for all communities in the North West, as it will give us the ability to maintain and upgrade infrastructure in our communities, which is so desperately needed,” said Sean Bujtas, Councilor of the Town of Terrace and Member of the RBA Steering Committee.

Most projects generating economic activity in the northwest are located outside municipal boundaries, resulting in low revenues for local governments and significant costs for communities in the region, the city’s website says. RBA.

Therefore, the RBA is lobbying the provincial government to share the revenue generated from these large projects with local communities. The RBA’s website argues that the provincial government gets enough money through big projects to support communities in the North West while making a “huge contribution to the general revenues of the BC government.”

“If successful, this deal would be a revenue-sharing agreement with the province that could generate millions of dollars a year for Prince Rupert and other Northwestern communities,” wrote Lee Brain, Mayor of Prince Rupert. on Facebook. “That kind of resourcing would mean the ability to really engage and grow our communities much faster, without having to burden local taxpayers.”

The memorandum of understanding that was signed outlines the commitments of the province and the RBA to work together to assess the impact of current and new industrial developments in the region. It dictates the principles that both parties have agreed to follow during the process and the steps that will be taken in the future.

“We know northwest British Columbia has unique needs and is growing rapidly,” said Nathan Cullen, Minister of Municipal Affairs. “By signing this memorandum of understanding, our government is committing to listen to the voices of rural and northern regions, and we will work together to meet the needs of the people of this beautiful region.

The memorandum of understanding stipulates that a working group, made up of employees from the Department of Municipal Affairs, the Department of Finance and members of the ARB, will analyze the financial needs and capacity of communities and identify projects, causes and problems that require funding.

The working group will meet at least every six weeks with the aim of providing a summary report by March 31, 2023. The intention of the report is to describe progress towards a common understanding of how industrial development historical and current can affect local government infrastructure. and livability in the area, states the memorandum of understanding.

“The Northwest Resource Benefit Alliance is an important opportunity for our member municipalities and electoral areas to partner and plan with our First Nation neighbors for infrastructure programs and shared services in Northwest British Columbia. said Kris Olsen, Mayor of Daajing Giids. “Our communities are interconnected and we all benefit when we are able to plan and work together. »

Do you know your family history? Where did they live? Did the family members serve in the military? What jobs did they have? What education? What were their experiences during the depression? Did they encounter the Spanish flu of 1918?

And if you are the person who knows the answers to family history questions, how do you share the information?

There are resources to help you research and document your family history. The National Archives and the local treasury of the Genealogy Center located in the Albuquerque Main Library can help you get started, help you discover your ancestry, and give you ideas for recording everything.

National Archives

As the repository of federal government records deemed to have permanent value for historical purposes, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) houses records that may be useful to individuals wishing to trace their ancestry. NARA maintains records that are of great use to genealogical researchers. The U.S. Census, taken every 10 years since 1790, is a very important source, and through partnerships between NARA and other organizations, all censuses taken over 72 years ago have been made available to the public. on line. The 1950 census was released in April. NARA also holds records documenting military service, passenger arrival, naturalization, taxation, legal actions, land ownership and much more.

Here are some suggestions from the National Archives:

Start with what you know

Start with your immediate family. Write down names, dates of birth, marriages, deaths and other milestones. Ask other “branches” of the family to help you fill in the information. Find out where they lived. This will be important for searches in these city, county, and state records.

Look for records you or family members may have.

The family Bible may contain birth, marriage and death records. Find the box of family clippings, military records, certificates, immigration papers, and other memorabilia. Research and ask loved ones if they know of any recorded cards or letters, scrapbooks, photo albums, or other books where events are recorded.

Interview relatives

Really take the time to interview your loved ones. Write down the questions, including follow-up questions that will give you more details. Older parents have been telling family stories for years and often begin to forget details. Consider audio or video recording of interviews to capture their own words.

If you have photos, ask for help identifying the people, their approximate ages, where the photo was taken, and the date.

State, county, and local records

The New Mexico State Records Center and Archives is a major source of information for anyone whose roots are part of New Mexico’s rich history. The collection of recordings is extensive, ranging from obvious recordings to recordings you might not think of.

County records may include deeds, estates, criminal and civil courts, taxes, and votes.

Local records, including places of worship, may contain records, such as membership directories. If you discover membership in organizations, such as veterans groups, fraternal organizations, or volunteer groups, their records may be available for review.

The genealogy center has many state, county, and local records.

The “Touched by Suicide” support group holds meetings the third Thursday of each month from 6-8 p.m. at Mason City 1st United Methodist Church. Although the group was formed many years ago, it came under the management of Wendy Martinez in 2007.

Martinez considers herself a suicide survivor, someone who learned to cope and heal after the suicide of someone she loved. For her, he was a brother. Her partner also lost a former partner.

“Until you get straight into it, you don’t realize how many someone has lost,” Martinez said. “It’s not a topic that comes up. It is a stigma. I know how it feels. If I can help one person, it’s worth it.

In addition to leading the support group, Martinez serves as Chair of the Board/Treasurer of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP.org.) Through AFSP, she has organized many community events in Mason City, such as the Out of the Darkness Walk, the Couples Walk and the Ride to Fight Suicide.

“I’m just trying to create awareness and a place where people can come,” Martinez said.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has proclaimed September Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. According to the nami.org website, this organization encourages people to unite their voices to advocate for better mental health care, including an effective crisis response system. 988 is the new national number for getting quick help during a mental health, addiction and suicide crisis.

Call or text 988 or chat with 988lifeline.org to join the 988 Suicide & Crisis lifeline.

Mosquito Fire evacuations force thousands of people to seek temporary shelter. What resources are available to them? https://abcdirectory.org/mosquito-fire-evacuations-force-thousands-of-people-to-seek-temporary-shelter-what-resources-are-available-to-them/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 22:54:16 +0000 https://abcdirectory.org/mosquito-fire-evacuations-force-thousands-of-people-to-seek-temporary-shelter-what-resources-are-available-to-them/ The Mosquito Fire, which started Sept. 6 in Placer and El Dorado counties, is 20% contained and has burned nearly 70,000 acres on Friday.

The Mosquito Fire, which started Sept. 6 in Placer and El Dorado counties, is 20% contained and has burned nearly 70,000 acres on Friday.

Firefighters have issued evacuation orders and warnings for areas in both counties, temporarily displacing nearly 11,000 people – many of whom have now been waiting for the blaze for more than a week with no definite time they can return.

However, at a Thursday evening briefing, officials said they were optimistic about containment efforts, and Friday morning crews reported a productive Thursday evening securing the southwest side of the fire.

Yet, with thousands of people forced to evacuate due to the fire, uncertainty remains about what happens next and what services are available at evacuation centers. CapRadio asked evacuees what answers they were looking for, and here are some of the most common questions:

1. When can we return home after evacuating? Who should we turn to for this information?

Scott McLean with Cal Fire says there is no firm date or time yet.

But when that time and date is set, he says it’s likely all evacuation areas will be deemed safe at once.

Information on when the return will be sent via “primarily social media”, McLean added.

“Websites, Twitter accounts, Facebook accounts, associated with CalFIRE, Forest Service or law enforcement,” he said. “We will also do press releases.”

Related social media pages include:

McLean pointed to the Mosquito Fire outbreak earlier this week as an example of “the volatility of conditions.”

“There are meetings every day at base camp with utilities, fire, law enforcement and others involved to let the group know if their particular topic has been taken care of, whether the propane company checking every tank and every line to homes or PG&E checking if they are ready to be electrified,” he said.

At Sierra College, one of Mosquito Fire’s three active evacuation centers, Derek Jones, 60, says someone from Cal Fire visits the evacuation center every few days to guide people through the latest updates on the fire.

In the college parking lot and cafeteria, which are currently housing survivors, there are fire damage maps and printouts of the latest CalFIRE incident reports.

2. How do I know if my home, business, etc. has been destroyed ?

Cal Fire says a damage inspection specialist is assessing El Dorado and Placer counties for destruction.

If your home, business, or other property is in Placer County, you can call the Office of Emergency Services at 530-886-5390 for the latest information. The county is also asking residents of the following roads to call the number:

  • Bath path
  • Mosquito Ridge Route
  • Lower Street
  • Hawk Chicken Road

If your home, business, or other property is in El Dorado County, you can zoom to your property or enter your address into the search box on this interactive website.

As of September 16, the agency confirmed that there were 10 structures damaged and 70 destroyed. These reports are preliminary and are expected to change as damage inspections continue.

3. What services does an evacuation center offer? Are there laundromats/laundry service?

Evacuation centers currently provide shelter, parking, showers, toilets, food and water. If you are a fire survivor but are staying with a relative and are not at an evacuation center, you may still be able to get help with food and water through the centres, which are run by the Red Cross.

For more information on this and other disaster relief, you can contact the Red Cross Gold Country Region Chapter at 916-993-7070.

Sierra College, which serves as an evacuation center for Placer County residents, currently has a portable laundry facility located in Parking Lot B. This parking lot also has portable restrooms.

4. How are evacuation centers and their services made accessible to disabled and elderly people?

The Red Cross says volunteers at the centers will do their best to meet any expressed needs, which may include “requests for equipment, supplies, food or cultural or religious requirements”.

The current parking lot arrangements at Sierra College reflect some possible mobility arrangements. Jones, who says survivors who moved into the parking lot at Sierra College considered him “the mayor of their little community,” added that “a lot of people are elderly and disabled.”

“They brought us a handicapped shower trailer that I asked for,” he said.

Portable toilets are also in the parking lot thanks to Jones passing on requests from others in the parking lot, as “a lot of people couldn’t get from here up there to the toilets.”

The parking lot is where many pets, including Jones and his two dogs, stay in their car or trailer. However, there is a steep incline between the field and the main evacuation center, which is in the college cafeteria.
