**GENERAL INFORMATION

The FourTrax Rancher is one of the most versatile ATV’s on the market. The Honda Rancher’s durability, toughness, and dependability are all incredible aspects of this ATV, but the characteristic that sets the Rancher apart from the rest is the ability to choose from a huge range of Rancher options, in order to find one that exactly fits your wants and needs.

The Rancher allows you to take a basic model, and add all of the necessary features to fit your needs exactly. Whether that is an independent rear suspension, two or four-wheel drive, Honda’s special electric power steering, or an automatic dual clutch transmission, the Rancher was built to support them all, and with an array of colors to choose from. With all of these options plus more, your fitted Rancher should feel like a tailored suit when its completed.

Westward Housing Group: Find Out How We Are Governed and Who Makes Decisions

Effective governance is key to a successful organisation.

For Westward as a business, this means having:

  • a streamlined board structure;
  • board members with diverse skills and experience;
  • leadership and direction to achieve our vision and values;
  • the highest degree of integrity across the organisation;
  • focussing on our priorities – see How well are we doing?;
  • clear accountability and transparency – follow this link to find out about how we spend our money and what we are doing to drive performance and efficiency.

Proposal regarding Westward

The boards who manage Westward’s three housing associations (Tarka Housing, Westcountry Housing and Westward) all agree that we should now go ahead and bring these organisations and their boards together formally.  This will allow us to work more efficiently and provide even better value for money. 

Our service to customers will not change as a result of this and councillors will still be able to raise issues with us. We want to continue to create great homes and neighbourhoods where people want to live and work. The staff who deliver our services will continue to do so. Our customer Scrutiny Group will continue to check, monitor and challenge the board and staff.

Our governance structure is shown here:  Westward governance structure chart and includes:

  • a common purpose board which governs Westward and Westcountry – CPB membership biographies 2013;
  • a separate board at Tarka – see biographies of Tarka membership 2013.
  • Customers work in the Scrutiny Group to review our services in line with our commitment to co-regulation.

The Tarka Board is made up of:

  • 4 residents;
  • 4 independent members;
  • 4 nominees of Torridge District Council

The common purpose board has two specialist sub-committees:

  • an Audit and Risk Committee which operate on these terms of reference.pdf and

a Governance Committee following these terms of reference pdf

  • The residents’ Scrutiny Panel links into the governance structure via the Audit and Risk Committee.

The boards provide leadership, direction, support and challenge and our senior management team is responsible for delivering services.

Westward has adopted the National Housing Federation’s codes of governance and standards.  We regularly assess compliance with these standards and report the outcomes in our Annual Financial Statements.

The government’s Homes and Communities Agency regulates social housing and we comply with their regulatory standards.

Milestone Claimed in Creating Fuel From Waste

Milestone Claimed in Creating Fuel From Waste

WASHINGTON — After months of frustrating delays, a chemical company announced Wednesday that it had produced commercial quantities of ethanol from wood waste and other nonfood vegetative matter, a long-sought goal that, if it can be expanded economically, has major implications for providing vehicle fuel and limiting greenhouse gas emissions.

The company, INEOS Bio, a subsidiary of the European oil and chemical company INEOS, said it had produced the fuel at its $130 million Indian River BioEnergy Center in Vero Beach, Fla., which it had hoped to open by the end of last year. The company said it was the first commercial-scale production of ethanol from cellulosic feedstock, but it did not say how much it had produced. Shipments will begin in August, the company said.

The process begins with wastes — wood and vegetative matter for now, municipal garbage later — and cooks it into a gas of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. Bacteria eat the gas and excrete alcohol, which is then distilled. Successful production would eliminate some of the “food versus fuel” debate in the manufacturing of ethanol, which comes from corn.

“Biomass gasification has not been done like this before, nor has the fermentation,” said Peter Williams, chief executive of INEOS Bio.

The plant, which uses methane gas from a nearby landfill, has faced a variety of problems. One was getting the methane, which is a greenhouse gas if released unburned, to the plant’s boilers. (The plan is to eventually run the plant on garbage that now goes to landfills.) Another problem was its reliance on the electrical grid.

The plant usually generates more power than it needs — selling the surplus to the local utility — and is supposed to be able to operate independently. But when thunderstorms knocked out the power grid, the plant unexpectedly shut down and it took weeks to get it running again, said Mark Niederschulte, the chief operating officer of INEOS Bio.

“We’ve had some painful do/undo loops,” he said.

The plant has produced “truckloads” of ethanol, said Mr. Williams, but still has work to do to improve its yield. Mr. Niederschulte said, “Now we want to produce more ethanol from a ton of wood, rather than just making ethanol from a ton of wood.”

The Department of Energy hailed the development as the first of a kind, and said it was made possible by research work the department had sponsored in recent years. The energy secretary, Ernest Moniz, said in a statement, “Unlocking the potential for the responsible development of all of America’s rich energy resources is a critical part of our all-of-the-above energy strategy.”

The Environmental Protection Agency, which grants valuable credits to companies that produce fuel from wastes, confirmed that only a very small volume has been produced so far. Another company, KiOR, has produced some diesel fuel from wood waste at a plant in Columbus, Miss.

Congress laid out a quota for production of biofuels from nonfood sources, but the agency has had to cut it back every year because of lack of production.

INEOS has a goal of eight million gallons a year.

If ethanol can be produced at reasonable cost from abundant nonfood sources, like yard trimmings or household trash, it could displace fuel made from oil, and that oil, and its carbon, could stay in the ground, reducing the amount greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, experts say. Carbon from wood scraps or garbage would enter the atmosphere via cellulosic ethanol, but cutting down a tree or trimming a garden creates space for new growth, which absorbs carbon dioxide from the air.
