The resulting pictures looked very bad, but still could not fully capture how awful the crops looked in some areas after some of the most challenging conditions seen in a lifetime on farms in the area.last_img read more

Ohio Supreme Court rules that landowners can challenge CAUV values before the Board of Tax Appeals

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Decisions announced earlier this month by the Ohio Supreme Court will allow landowners to challenge Current Agricultural Use Valuation (CAUV) land values established by Ohio’s tax commissioner by appealing the values to the Board of Tax Appeals.Twin rulings in cases filed by a group of owners of woodland enrolled in CAUV, Adams v. Testa, clarify that when the tax commissioner develops tables that propose CAUV values for different types of farmland, holds a public hearing on the values and adopts the final values by journal entry, the tax commissioner’s actions constitute a “final determination” that a landowner may immediately appeal to the Board of Tax Appeals. The Board of Tax Appeals had argued that the adoption of values is not a final determination and therefore is not one that a landowner may appeal to the Board.The tax commissioner forwards the CAUV tables to the county auditors, who must use the values for a three year period.  An inability to appeal the values when established by the tax commissioner would mean that a landowner must wait until individual CAUV tax values are calculated by the county auditor, who relies upon the tax commissioner’s values to calculate the county values. As a result of the decision, landowners may appeal the values as soon as the tax commissioner releases them.The landowners also claimed that the process and rules for establishing the CAUV values are unreasonable and not legal.  However, the Court rejected those claims.For an excellent summary of the Adams v. Testa cases by Court News Ohio, follow this link.last_img read more

Burned by Twitter’s API Restrictions, Developers Launch Distributed Microblogging Service

first_imgrStat.us is an OStatus-based microblogging service built by Steve Klabnik and others using Ruby, Sinatra and MongoDB. Because it uses OStatus, it’s compatible with Identi.ca and StatusNet microblogs. In order to follow someone from Identi.ca, just paste the ATOM feed from their profile into rStat.us. Theoretically this should work both ways, but I was unable to subscribe to my own rStat.us account from Identi.ca account.Klabnik and some friends started it after Twitter changed its terms of service and began discouraging developers to start new Twitter clients.Writing at The Changelog, Klabnik explained the origin of the project.If you didn’t hear, a week ago Friday Twitter changed their terms of service. This got a lot of people upset, including me. My friends and I started thinking about it, and the real problem is this: any software that’s owned by one entity, corporate or not, is open to the possibility of being abused.So we decided to fix it. Ten days later, here we are: http://rstat.us/ is born.

You can post a status, read replies, follow people and read their updates. That’s about it. “We pride ourselves on saying ‘no’ to lots of features,” the site says.The code is available on  Github, so you can start your own rStat.us server if you want to.This project is very similar to StatusNet, the microblogging engine that powers Identi.ca. But rStat.us is written in Ruby instead of PHP, which might attract more developers.It’s one of many projects addressing the problem of centralization and data portability on the Web. Others include Diaspora, Couchappspora,  Apache CouchDB and Unhosted. For more information on this movement, check out our interviews with some of the developers of these projects:Interview with J. Chris Anderson of the CouchDB sponsor company Couchbase.Interview with Michiel de Jong of Unhosted.Interview with Max Ogden of Couchappspora.Klabnik also maintains the cross-platform Ruby GUI toolkit Shoes and HacketyHack, the interactive Ruby tutorial we covered here.
