Rebecca Symes is an extraordinary leader

first_imgTo the Editor: The first time I saw Rebecca Symes conduct a Harsimus Cove Association meeting as president, I knew I was seeing someone with extraordinary leadership capabilities. This meant a lot to me personally because I founded the organization and have worked hard as a neighborhood activist for many years. With time, my respect and admiration for her has deepened.Before deciding to endorse Rebecca, and in fact to volunteer on her campaign, I questioned her at length about her background, her knowledge, her reasons for seeking office, and, most important to me, her values. She came up aces on all counts.Walking the area with her as we knock on doors and meet voters, I’ve also developed a warm regard for her as a person. And I continue to learn about her grasp of the issues we face downtown, her ideas about how to deal with them, and her ability to listen to, relate to, and learn from others. I trust Rebecca, and I’m convinced that she’s not only hard-working but also highly capable and ethical. For these reasons, I’m happy to enthusiastically support Rebecca for City Council.

It’s a family affair: Ticklebelly Lane Bakery, Lincoln

first_imgFamily matters at The Ticklebelly Lane Bakery and Tea House. And this family-run business wants its customers to feel at home in its site just off Lincoln’s High Street.“We wanted to create a place where people felt comfortable, a place for them to relax and be part of the Ticklebelly family,” explains Vicky Cook, operations manager and wife of co-owner James. A former headteacher, Vicky has recently moved away from education to help James and his mum Julie, Ticklebelly’s other owner, taking charge of a range of tasks across the business. Those visiting the site have a choice of three rooms in which to cosy up, including The Bakers’ Suite and Attic that offers a selection of armchairs and nooks in which to escape. The decor across all floors is homely, with walls hand-painted by Vicky, trinkets, and chalkboard sayings such as ‘a balanced diet is a cake in both hands’.It took a lot of work to convert the former photo shop into a homely setting. “It needed a little bit of TLC and a big bank balance,” says Vicky (James chuckles in the background suggesting she is being modest). “It took longer than planned and cost a bit more but it was worth it.”On arrival, shoppers are greeted by an impressive window display stacked with a variety of loaves from Ticklebelly’s top seller, sourdough, to the unusual Dragon’s Tail (see box out), focaccia, ciabatta and bakery staples of white and brown loaves. Sweet treats, including vegan and gluten-free options, and handmade sausage rolls topped with pastry pigs adorn the counter.While the pastries, cakes and other fare are prepared on-site by chef Dwayne and the team, the bread is made just outside the city at Ticklebelly’s dedicated bakehouse and delivered daily. The bakehouse also serves the business’s commercial contracts, including Doddington Hall, the local Waterstones café and nearby events firms.At the shop, it’s clear the locals are taken with Ticklebelly’s products by the way they interact with the staff. “The feedback from the locals has been great,” notes Vicky. “One woman told us ‘Lincoln needs a proper bread the way it used to be made’. She now comes in regularly.”With a menu covering breakfast, lunch and dinner, visitors can even stay late into the evening as the bakery hosts its first few Cake & Cocktails, Prosecco & Puddings night and other experience days. With that much to stay for, they’ll have to convince customers to leave.Who:  James and Vicky Cook(pictured with their two children), respectively owner and operations manager, Ticklebelly Lane BakeryWhat: Ticklebelly Lane Bakery and Tea House is just off Lincoln High Street and comprises a traditional bakery shop front with three floors dedicated to relaxing with cake and a cuppa or participating in an Italian bread baking class.Where: 5 Guildhall Street, Lincoln, LN1 1TTWhen: The bakery and tea house opened in November 2017, but the business has been a home bakery since 2010.Why: “We started off in our kitchen and grew and grew,” says Vicky. “The new site was a natural step for us – it’s about moving away from being the name behind other people’s food to putting the Ticklebelly stamp on Lincoln.”…On-site – Ticklebelly LaneOrigin of the name:“A public lane that used to run down the side of the house. A farmer would run his pigs down it and the grass would tickle their bellies. Hence the name.”cameramake Canonfocallength 35height 360fnumber 5.6exposuretime 0.0125camerasoftware paint.net 4.0.17originaldate 1/19/2018 3:40:23 PMwidth 640cameramodel Canon EOS 700DOpen plan: The ground floor of Ticklebelly’s site allows customers to see all the action in the kitchen, from the creation of homemade sausage rolls to cakes being decorated.cameramake Canonfocallength 18height 360fnumber 3.5exposuretime 0.0333333351camerasoftware paint.net 4.0.17originaldate 1/19/2018 3:57:54 PMwidth 640cameramodel Canon EOS 700DDragon’s Tail:This unusual looking loaf is one of Ticklebelly’s best-sellers. “Like nachos in bread form”, the plaited bread has a fiery kick and is topped with crushed tortilla chips.cameramake Canonfocallength 18height 360fnumber 4exposuretime 0.0333333351camerasoftware paint.net 4.0.17originaldate 1/19/2018 3:43:01 PMwidth 640cameramodel Canon EOS 700DBake & Date: Ticklebelly hosts classes and themed nights for locals, including Bake & Date, Chocolate Heaven and the self-explanatory Cake & Cocktails, Prosecco & Puddings nights.focallength 18flash 9cameramake Canonheight 360fnumber 4exposuretime 0.0166666675camerasoftware paint.net 4.0.17originaldate 1/19/2018 3:06:10 PMwidth 640cameramodel Canon EOS 700DPart of the family: “The small blue oven is one of the first we ever had,” says Vicky.

How to structure your credit union for innovation

first_imgby: Matt CalmanInnovation, we can all agree, is critical for success, and even survival, in today’s fast-evolving banking industry. At the same time, as every banker knows, innovation is easy to talk about but hard to accomplish, particularly in large organizations. Inevitably, departmental silos, personality conflicts and/or mismatched strategic goals come into play and hinder the teamwork required for success.Fortunately, there is a better way and it starts with organizational structure. Where you place innovation teams in your bank plays a large part in channeling their activities and generating a positive outcome. Matching the right organizational plan with your innovation expectations will greatly affect your odds of success while a mismatch will reduce output and increase tension as the organization tries to work out role clarity.Let’s start with what I call “point of attachment,” in other words, where you place innovation teams on your org chart.Question of AlignmentWhen an innovation team is aligned to Technology under a chief information officer, their exploration typically focuses on emerging technologies that deliver productivity benefits such as higher performance, higher reliability and lower cost. Most technology-focused innovation teams display a willingness to experiment with new technologies to find a context in banking before a solid financial plan has been worked out. Tech teams have the advantage of close relationships with vendors and can work with their product development teams to conduct proof-of-concept experiments on new platforms much more easily than a team attached to a business line. The down-side is that tech solutions are often developed without a deep understanding of customer needs and financial factors; they may miss the market’s overall need while solving only one piece of the puzzle. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Tracy Creek Memorial Church helps missions with annual garage sale

first_imgChurch Treasurer Cliff Bays said the sale will benefit missionaries here in the Southern Tier, such as Candle House and the Life Choices Center as well as missions worldwide. All items up for sale were donated and church members say they were up early preparing cookies, brownies and other goodies for a bake sale next door. “We want to keep the outreach going to the community, keep the people involved with the church, and bring more new people in,” he said. “We just recently brought in a new pastor and we have a lot of new people coming in with that, we’re really doing fantastically right now,” he said. He said despite the coronavirus forcing the church to cancel their chicken barbecue, it was important for them to go forward with the garage sale. center_img VESTAL (WBNG) — Tracy Creek Memorial Church held their annual garage sale Saturday with all proceeds going to benefit missions the church supports. Bays says the main problem the church is currently facing is not being able to hold services at full capacity due to coronavirus restrictions, but he hopes to see that change in the near future.last_img read more
