‘We’re prepared’: Utah County election officials make improvements to prevent past problems

PROVO — Election officials in Utah County said they have made improvements to prevent issues that have plagued the county in the past.

After polling locations experienced long lines lasting more than three hours on midterm election night in 2018, Governor Gary Herbert criticized Utah County as the “epicenter of dysfunction.”

For next month’s general election, the county’s new clerk/auditor promises things will be better.

“When you look at what I’ve been able to accomplish in a short amount of time, it’s because I was able to secure the resources for the equipment and literally the best team in the state,” said Utah County Clerk/Auditor Amelia Powers Gardner.

Since Powers Gardner took office in 2019, she’s hired new staff and purchased new ballot-counting machines. She said they now have the largest scanners in the state, which can process 600 ballots per minute.

“I’ve worked tirelessly to make sure that my staff has the resources they need to serve those people,” she said.

Powers Gardner is expecting a lot of people to show up at polling locations on November 3 because this will be Utah County’s first presidential election with vote-by-mail and she worries that some may not be used to it.

“We have over-prepared for the people we expect at the polls,” she said. “We know that we’re going to have a lot. We’re prepared to serve three times the number people at the polls that voted in 2018.”

For those voting in person, she’s also implementing a new system to let voters check-in using their phones.

Lakewood eyeing OPWC funds for water main improvements throughout city

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — This summer Lakewood was awarded $750,000 in Water Main Replacement Project funds from the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC).

Now the city is planning to begin work next spring on Lauderdale Avenue (between Detroit and Madison avenues), Leedale Avenue (between Lake Avenue and Edgewater Boulevard) and Elbur Avenue (Between Athens Avenue and Lakewood Heights Boulevard).

“This is all part of our yearly OPWC grant application for water main improvements,” Lakewood City Engineer Mark K. Papke said. “These projects are currently in design. They’ll be going out to bid in the first quarter 2021, start in May and wrap up around November.”

The project cost is $4,716,850. In addition to the grant, the OPWC is also providing a zero-percent 20-year loan for $866,850. That means the city’s total contribution is nearly $4 million.

“These water mains were installed in the early 1900s,” Papke said. “Most of them are six-inch in diameter and cast iron. They get tuberculated — the metal grows on the inside of the pipe and reduces the diameter, which affects water flow.

“Also a lot of these have lead service connections that are being replaced with copper. So we upsized the water main to eight-inch diameter and put in six-inch fire hydrants rather than the existing four-inch. It improves the flow.”

Lakewood is also applying for the next round of OPWC funds to cover a sewer improvement project planned for portions of Andrews Avenue (Detroit Avenue to Clifton Boulevard) and Gladys Avenue (Detroit Avenue to Clifton Boulevard).

“Length-wise, the project is similar to the 2021 project, but we’re also including some necessary sewer improvements,” Papke said. “Some areas require heavier sewer upgrades than other ones.”

The city engineer said Lakewood not only entered into the agreement in July, but is currently at 75 percent of

Analysis: Major Improvements In iPhone 12 Pro Cameras

“The photographer’s phone” is what Apple calls the iPhone 12 Pro, and almost the entire presentation of that model (and its larger iPhone 12 Pro Max sibling) focused on the cameras.

The iPhone 12 Pro has the same 6.1in screen with XDR technology as the iPhone 12, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max has the largest screen ever in a 6.7in iPhone. They use the same ceramic crystal glass that should be four times more durable than iPhone 11.

The frame around the body of the phone is made of stainless steel that has been coloured and polished to an extreme sheen, and Apple says the gold-coloured model has a lustre that is more reminiscent of actual gold than ever.

Another novelty is even better sealing: the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max both offer an IP68 water-resistance rating to a depth of 6m.

But the really big improvements can be found in the cameras.

Super-sharp cameras

The iPhone 12 Pro has a new telephoto camera corresponding to a focal length of 52mm (which is to say, what most photographers would regard as a ‘normal’ lens), while the Pro Max goes a bit further with a corresponding focal length of 65mm.

As expected, both models have LiDAR sensors that are used partly for AR functions, but also to improve the cameras. In low light, the iPhone 12 Pro uses LiDAR to focus up to six times faster than infrared light. Together with the ultra-wide-angle camera with a corresponding focal length of 13mm, the iPhone 12 Pro thus has 4x optical zoom while the iPhone 12 Pro Max has 5x.

The image stabilisation has now moved into the sensor, something which improves shake protection as it can adjust the image five times faster than in the iPhone 11. Apple claims it
