Governor Jim Douglas applauded the work of the Vermont Department of Finance and Management for receiving the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) – the organizations highest form of recognition. This is the second year in a row that the State of Vermont, through the Department of Finance and Management, has received this award for the comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).“The team at Finance and Management has done a tremendous job ensuring that my Administration, the Legislature and Vermonters have the best possible fiscal information,” said Governor Douglas. “Timely and accurate reporting is critical in making good decisions, providing the transparency taxpayers expect and maximizing our limited resources. Commissioner Reardon and his team deserve a great deal of credit for their sound management of taxpayer money during a very difficult time.”Commissioner Jim Reardon, who has been at the helm of the Finance and Management Department for the past five years stated “I am very proud of my staff in the Financial Operations Division, they are a talented and committed team of state employees that take great pride in their work.”According to the GFOA, Vermont’s CAFR was judged to meet the highest standards of financial reporting by an impartial panel of experts. The CAFR demonstrated a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” by clearly communicating Vermont’s “financial story” and motivating groups and individuals to read the CAFR.The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association based out of Chicago, Illinois and Washington D.C. and serves approximately 17,500 government finance professionals in the U.S. and Canada.Source: Governor’s office. 7.21.2010###
The Poland keeper had only just returned to the side following fitness problems, ousting countryman Wojciech Szczesny as he delivered a clean sheet in the Champions League away win over Bayern Munich and then also at Swansea. However, Fabianski missed the midweek goalless draw against Everton and is now set to be monitored “day-by-day” to assess his availability for the crucial run-in as Arsenal look to cement a top-four finish. “Fabianski has a crack in his rib that has not moved, so we have to treat it clinically,” said Wenger, whose side travel to Fulham on Saturday. Press Association “That means has he pain or does he not? That is day by day.” Szczesny had little to do against Everton, but was alert enough when called up. Wenger was happy with the goalkeeper’s response to being dropped – which had brought stinging public criticism from the player’s father. “He had a good performance, I was pleased with his focus, with his sharpness,” the Arsenal boss said. “He dealt well with the situation that he faced. “In our job there is only one way to respond, to practice harder and stronger and show that you are ready for a fight, that is what he did.” Wenger felt referee Neil Swarbrick should have taken a firmer stance against what was some tough tackling by Everton on Tuesday night, when midfielder Darron Gibson stayed on the pitch despite twice pole-axing Theo Walcott. The physical approach of some players was again highlighted in yesterday’s Premier League game between Manchester United and West Ham at Upton Park, where Irons striker Andy Carroll clattered into goalkeeper David De Gea in a challenge which Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson claimed should have resulted in a red card. Wenger admitted he could see both sides, adding: “He went for the ball at the start, but he was too late.” Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski could be set for another extended spell on the sidelines with a rib injury, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.
