DRESDEN, TN – When people are down on their luck, there’s a helping hand at hand. It’s something we’ve seen — and continue to see — as recovery efforts continue after December’s tornado outbreak.

A Dresden woman received the surprise of her life after losing her home in the December storm: a brand new home built by faith-based crisis response group God’s Pit Crew.

Cathy Gallimore has lost a lot in her life, but she said she was beyond grateful for the gift. Receiving her new home was a bittersweet moment for her.






Cathy Gallimore has lost a lot in her life, but she said she was beyond grateful for the gift. Receiving her new home was a bittersweet moment for her.


“You have to look at the positive in life,” Gallimore said. “My life, yes, I’ve been through a lot. It’s hard. But there’s someone across the street or at the end of the street who’s going through more than I’m going through or as much I’m going through. You just had to be nice to people.”

Because of everything she’s been through, Gallimore could easily have been knocked down by negativity.

Her husband died in July last year and her father died in November. Then, her 24-year-old son died in January. A few years ago, she also lost her other son. Not only that, but she lost her job due to COVID-19, and she lost her home due to a tornado.

Now she cares for her sister, who has terminal bone cancer, and her mother, who has dementia.

Moved by its history, God’s Pit Crew built the house for Gallimore.

“I’m going through so many hardships, but keep having a good attitude and keep moving forward, and so we felt like she needed a break. We felt we could give it to her,” said God’s Pit Crew President Randy. says Johnson.

It’s a break that Gallimore needed. She would have been homeless without it.

Now, not only does she have a roof over her head, but there are ways God’s Pit Crew made her feel like she was home.

“It was so much more than I expected, so much more than I thought I deserved,” Gallimore said. “I felt so blessed, so blessed.”


“It was so much more than I expected, so much more than I thought I deserved,” Gallimore said. “I felt so blessed, so blessed.”

Gallimore said she was excited to use her new home for holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and building memories, like baking cookies with the grandkids and staying up at night and watching old movies or cartoons. .

The president of God’s Pit Crew told us that with the cost of construction, appliances, and feeding the volunteers three meals a day, the house cost $200,000 to build.

City staff are recommending five locations for the construction of 10 new pickleball courts in Chatham-Kent.

Courts are proposed to be built at Blenheim, Chatham, Tilbury, Dresden and Wallaceburg.

Staff recommends building two courts in Steinhoff Park, behind the current tennis courts, located at 157 Park Street.

“This area has players who can play both pickleball and tennis,” a staff report said.

“It’s already an established area for the practice of these sports.”

The proposed location in Dresden is at Jackson Park, located at 319 Brown Street.

“Parking access and it is already a well-used park with available space which is centrally located in the community,” a staff report read.

The total construction cost of the project is set at $554,600, including $419,600 from the Provincial Community Development Grant, $10,000 from the Ontario Builds Sign program and $125,000 from the Municipality, or 20% of the cost of the project. project, which had previously been approved by the Council.

“Chatham-Kent’s one-time funding share of $125,000 for construction costs as well as annual maintenance and lifecycle costs for ten pickleball courts was approved during the 2022 budget process,” a statement read. staff report.

Rob Pollock, director of parks, recreation and cemeteries, said staff analyzed community engagement and determined there was strong demand for pickleball courts to be spread across Chatham-Kent, instead of have the majority of the land in Chatham.

“The preference for the Blenheim and Tilbury communities was prevalent in the general comments given in the survey,” Pollock said in a report.

“Using the survey results, staff determined that due to the demand for pickleball courts in these communities, they would be added to the grant funding and the number of courts to be installed in Chatham would be reduced to two with possible expansion to eight pitches in the future with additional funding or fundraising by a community group.

The annual Dresden Summer Festival on Sunday July 10 is a family affair with something for all ages. The Pownalborough Courthouse grounds will hop from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with music from String Tide, colonial re-enactors, children’s activities, local artisans and musicians.

There will be make-up, a balloon artist and a caricature artist to delight young and old. Members of the Colonial Maine Living History Association will give visitors insight into life when the historic courthouse was in session, docents will lead tours (free for residents of Dresden and members of Lincoln County Historical Association), and a team of horses will be on hand for wagon rides. All of this, plus a pie contest, tug of war and goat petting area, will make your day a fun family day.

Local artisans will sell their wares and the Dresden Fire Department will grill hot dogs, burgers and sausages. Drinks and desserts will be offered.

Dresden Summerfest is organized by the Lincoln County Historical Association (LCHA). LCHA was founded in 1954 by renowned local artist Mildred Burrage with a mission to collect, preserve and interpret the history of Lincoln County, Maine, which once stretched from Brunswick to Canada. Key to the organization’s work is the management of three historic buildings: the 1761 Pownalborough Courthouse in Dresden, the 1811 Old Gaol in Wiscasset and the 1754 Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta.

“Parkside on Dresden will enhance Dresden’s thriving, pedestrianized corridor with luxury residential units and a curated selection of restaurants, shops and service providers”, Timothy “JR” Connolly, managing director, CONNOLLY, said in a press release. “We designed this project to fit seamlessly into the surrounding community, which epitomizes city living at its best – this is Modern Main Street.”

Developped by Terwilliger Pappasthe residential component of Parkside in Dresden is called Solis Dresden Village and is comprised of a five-story building that includes 176 apartment houses with a landscaped roof terrace and swimming pool. Seven townhouses provide additional residential options along Caldwell Road.

CONNOLLY develops 30,000 square feet of real estate facing the sidewalk to accommodate 11 retail storefronts and four online dining spaces, with a fifth freestanding restaurant located near the townhouses.

The mix of retail tenants at Parkside in Dresden will focus on “various culinary options, wellness services, independent boutiques and service providers,” the statement said. “We have substantial interest from local and regional brands wanting to open a storefront at Parkside in Dresden, as it offers a unique environment with an extremely strong consumer base,” continues Connolly. “With very few opportunities to establish a location along Dresden Drive, businesses are eager to be part of the last major development remaining in this high-energy corridor.”

Parkside on Dresden is located at 1350 Dresden Drive, between Caldwell Road and Parkside Drive, a short walk from the Brookhaven-Oglethorpe MARTA station in Brookhaven.

Terwilliger Pappas assembled a team of Atlanta-based companies to make Parkside in Dresden a reality, including: general contractor New Southarchitects Ruler Joy Trammell + Rubioand design office Kimley Horn.

The clock tower building in Dresden.

By Pam Wright
Journalist of the Local Journalism Initiative

Bad timing.

So says Stuart Kiar about the possible closure of the Chatham-Kent Municipal Services Center in Dresden’s iconic clock tower building.

“The timing is not right,” said Kiar, a local lawyer and one of the leaders of the Dresden Shines community group.

“This comes a week after the announcement of the potential redevelopment of Chatham town centre.

“I support this development, as do many Dresden residents I have spoken with,” he said. However, Kiar noted that it “seems ironic” that the potential closure of the Dresden Civic Center follows so closely the announcement of downtown Chatham.

The deputation of Kiar, co-chair of the community group Dresden Shines with Cindy Brewer and Liz Kominek, was one of 105 submitted to Chatham-Kent council on June 20.

Deputies – who took more than two hours to read aloud – oppose the idea of ​​cutting in-person municipal services in Dresden, Ridgetown and Tilbury, as well as the end of municipal assistance offices in Bothwell, Thamesville and Wheatley.

What worries the inhabitants of Dresden is that the proposal recommends that the municipality dispose of the buildings concerned; which means that the historic brick monument in Dresden would be sold.

The clock tower has long been a focal point of the city, Kiar noted, and since the formation of Dresden Shines in 2020 after the May 16 miracle, a unique lighting system on the heritage structure has been regularly used to mark special occasions and highlight causes.

The report explains that requests for services have dropped dramatically during the pandemic as services increasingly move online, but Kiar said the conclusion is misleading.

Municipal information offices at libraries in Wheatley, Thamesville and Bothwells have been closed for more than two years, he said.

In Dresden, where a mix of municipal and ServiceOntario services such as permits and Medicare cards are offered, foot traffic is restricted to appointments only for provincial services.

Appointment-only practice for ServiceOntario in Dresden and Chatham began during the pandemic and has continued.

However, residents can access municipal services without an appointment.

Chatham-Kent human resources manager Cathy Hoffman said the municipality operates ServiceOntario offices in Dresden and on Grand Avenue in Chatham, while Blenheim and Wallaceburg ServiceOntario outlets are privately operated.

Hoffman said the practice of requiring appointments continues in order to combat frustrating lineups, a situation that can be exacerbated by weather.

ServiceOntario has a contract with the municipality, but it is due to expire at the end of 2022. The proposal recommends that the municipality not attempt to renew the agreement unless the province chooses to pay the full cost instead. to subsidize a party.

Along with Kiar’s submission, deputations were received from ZAC Dresden and many prominent citizens and business owners in the community.

Access for seniors, the fact that ServiceOntario draws a lot of foot traffic downtown, the fact that not everyone has access to the internet, the price of gas and the lack of transportation to d Other ServiceOntario outlets were among the concerns raised.

County of North Kent. Jamie McGrail, said she was unhappy that local groups were not consulted as part of the review.

Stakeholders, such as local ZACs, should have been included, she said.

“Community and business groups should have been notified and made aware,” McGrail said, adding that services provided by civic centers are “essential services.”

“I think there is a flaw in the way we get our message across,” she added.

McGrail said she agrees with some of the elements of the customer service review to improve services and reduce costs. However, she said savings for Chatham-Kent should not come “at the expense” of smaller communities.

County of North Kent. Joe Faas said the Dresden Municipal Building is a “community anchor”, adding that the deputations “speak for themselves”.

The customer service review came about following a motion by South Kent Coun. Clare Latimer in March 2021. The council directed the administration to find efficiencies and reduce costs by possibly changing the services provided through its municipal service centers and information offices.

It also examines how the municipality provides information to residents through its 3-1-1 telephone system and details how online services can be improved.

A 14-member committee made up primarily of Chatham-Kent trustees and some members from the private sector met weekly for a six-month period in 2021 to determine how municipal services could be changed.

Kiar said community groups in Dresden were exploring the issue, but noted that “the ball is back in the council’s court.

“It’s up to the council,” he said. “The administration simply acted on the recommendation of the board.

“They did exactly what was asked of them.”

The matter returns to council on July 11.

About 40 voters approved Dresden’s $1,157,865 city budget, as recommended by the city’s budget review committee, and all other items of the mandate at the annual city meeting on Saturday, June 18.

The budget represents an increase of $32,743, or 2.91%, over last year.

However, the budget will remain essentially stable as voters rejected a question that would have allocated $40,000 to begin the RSU 2 withdrawal process in the Tuesday, June 14 vote.

The $40,000 was withdrawn from the budget following the failure of the RSU 2 withdrawal question, City Administrator Daniel Swain said in a telephone interview Wednesday, June 22. The question failed by a vote of 177 to 148, with 82 blank ballots.

The updated total budget, as recommended by the Budget Review Committee, is now $1,117,865, down slightly from last year.

The total budget recommended by the budget review committee is $350 more than the recommended select council on the term of the annual municipal meeting.

The budget review committee and the select committee disagreed on the amounts to be given to the various organizations. The select committee recommended $20,675 for the donation request category, while the budget review committee recommended $21,025.

Residents approved the budget review committee’s recommendation of a higher amount.

Voters also approved changing the day of the annual municipal meeting to the first Tuesday after the state’s primary election in June. No time has yet been set for the next annual municipal meeting.

There were discussions of different terms of reference during the nearly three-hour meeting, according to Swain.

He said there were a lot of new people at the annual municipal meeting who might not be too familiar with the process and procedures. Most of the discussion consisted of explaining some common mandate articles and technical issues.

Swain said he also made some changes to the terms of reference to “streamline the process” that most residents had never seen before, prompting questions.

Swain also reworked the budget slightly from last year, adding a new department for municipal buildings and debt services and moving capital reserve project funds from the general fund into the budget.

Jeff Pierce moderated the meeting.

The Faculty of Environmental Sciences at TU Dresden and the Leibniz-Institut für ökologische Raumentwicklung eV (Leibniz Institute for Ecological Urban and Regional Development) invites applications for the

Spatial Information and Modeling Chair

associated with the Head of the Spatial Information and Modeling Research Area at the Leibniz Institute for Urban and Regional Ecological Development (IOER)

in a joint appointment procedure in accordance with § 62 (2) of the Higher Education Institutions Autonomy Act of the Free State of Saxony (SächsHSFG) to be filled by January 1, 2023.

Appointment is initially limited to five years. In the event of a positive evaluation by the IOER, the employment contract at the IOER is made permanent. For the duration of the employment relationship at IOER, you (m/f/x) will be appointed to the chair and enjoy the status of university professor at TU Dresden.

The Faculty of Environmental Sciences unites – unique in Germany – the three environmentally related scientific fields of forestry, geosciences and hydrosciences under one roof. The interdisciplinary and international orientation creates great synergy potentials. Primary focal points are Earth system monitoring and modeling at global, regional and local scales, as well as sustainable human habitat development. For more than 20 years, there has been a close collaboration with the IOER in research and teaching.

The IOER is a non-university research center and a member of the Leibniz Association. As a leading center for advanced spatial sustainability science, it develops multiscale spatial information, analysis tools and knowledge, as well as policy and planning instruments that enhance adaptive capacities and of transformation in spatial contexts. To this end, the Institute strives to elucidate the internal and external sustainability orientations of individuals, organizations and society, as well as their insertion into socio-ecological and technological spatial configurations. IOER promotes gender equality and values ​​the diversity of its team. It is certified by Total-E-Quality.

You will be responsible for managing the IOER research area “Spatial Information and Modeling”, including the research data infrastructure “IOER-Monitor” located here. This will likely expand to a research data center from 2023 (subject to funding approval, with nine full-time positions on a permanent basis). At the same time, the area “Spatial Information and Spatial Modeling” of TU Dresden is to be represented by two SWS. We expect you to be willing and able to teach in English. Teaching is to be provided in the master’s programs of TU Dresden (especially spatial development and management of natural resources, geography, geoinformatics technologies). This includes supervising master’s theses and dissertations, in particular within the framework of the Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS), which is run jointly with IOER. We count on your active participation in the further development of the cooperation between TUD and IOER.

You must have an international reputation for outstanding scientific work in the field of spatial information and modeling and have experience in university teaching and mentoring young scientists. We expect comprehensive theoretical, methodological and practical knowledge in the following areas:

  • methods for monitoring and analyzing land use, housing and building stock and ecosystem services in urban, regional and/or landscape planning.
  • spatial modeling and scenario building
  • Innovative geoinformatics methods (e.g. spatial data science, GeoAI, machine learning, exploratory geovisualization, participatory modelling, decision support systems) to work on these aspects and in close connection with spatial data infrastructures (research ) national and international.

We are looking for a personality with experience in relevant fields and areas of research, as well as a demonstrably high demand for innovation in research and teaching. We expect appropriate evidence for:

  • success in independently acquiring 3rd party funding (especially DFG, BMBF, EU Horizon), project management and implementation.
  • extensive publishing activity in peer-reviewed international journals and other relevant media
  • participation in international, European and national committees, associations and networks
  • experience in personnel management and in the animation of working groups
  • ability to work together in an interdisciplinary manner, ability to work in a team and strong social skills
  • very good knowledge of English (C2) and German (at least C1); other language skills are an advantage.

You will be recruited at IOER in Dresden and will be employed for an initial period of five years at IOER on the basis of an employment contract under private law with remuneration corresponding to grade W2, salary scale W in § 34 of the Saxon Civil Code Pay Scale Act. You will take on scientific management tasks at IOER. For the duration of the existence of the working relationship on the IOER, you will be appointed Professor of Information and Spatial Modeling at TUD and you will benefit from the status of member of university lecturer at TUD. The appointment is made according to the Thuringian model in accordance with § 62 (2) of the Higher Education Institutions Autonomy Act of the Free State of Saxony (SächsHSFG); no public office or employment relationship is established with TUD.
