Brochure “Guide to restaurants and taverns of Opatija” presented

first_imgThe Tourist Board of the city of Opatija recently presented a new catalog of congress offers entitled “Opatija – congress destination with tradition”, And now a brochure has been presented “Guide to restaurants and taverns of Opatija”. With this brochure we wanted to highlight the key reasons why Opatija is one of the top Croatian gastronomy – it is the position “between the sea and the mountains” which is why the plate combines “the best of both worlds” – seafood delicacies such as Kvarner shrimp and quality fish and fruit forests such as wild asparagus and mushrooms, the tradition of hospitality that is measured in centuries and the creativity of our chefs who successfully enhance this tradition with modern gastronomic trends, creating from indigenous local foods unsurpassed creations on a plate ” pointed out the director of the Tourist Board of the city of Opatija Suzi Petričić. In order to present the “culinary attractions” of its city, the Tourist Board of the city of Opatija has just published a brochure “Guide to restaurants and taverns of Opatija” which is available to all visitors to Opatija in the TIC from today. The idea, ie the only logical sequence of development and branding of Opatija, ie the Opatija Riviera through synergy, which has been written about and waited for a long time, finally got some first concrete official steps last year. According to the mayor of Opatija, Ivo Dujmić, an agreement has been reached with the mayors of the Liburnian local self-government and their tourist communities on the joint branding of the Opatija Riviera. For now, there is no official information on where and at what stage the process of branding the Opatija Riviera as a tourist destination is. Unfortunately, everything is obviously going too slowly, which is a great pity, because the market is evolving day by day, while we are stagnating and too slow, others are pushing strongly forward. RELATED NEWS: Matulji, Ičići, Mošćenička Draga, Lovran and Opatija must be under one brand – Opatija Riviera. It is only logical, natural and efficient. Branding of regions, not separately 300+ destinations in Croatia. Photo: City of Opatija Top gastronomic offer, cultural and congress tourism are among the most important elements of the tourist product of Opatija and the entire Riviera. The first edition of the brochure has been printed in 10 copies, and a new edition with the latest offer will be printed each year. Apart from the printed edition, all texts and photos will be available on the website of the Opatija Tourist Board. For now, there is no news about the same on the official web and FB pages of the Opatija Tourist Board. On the contrary, it is interesting how the Opatija Tourist Board communicates using the channels of the city of Opatija, and not through its communication channels. MATULJI, IČIĆI, MOŠĆENIČKA DRAGA, LOVRAN AND OPATIJA UNDER ONE BRAND – OPATIJA RIVIERA NEW CATALOG AND INTERNET PLATFORM OF OPATIJA FOR THE PROMOTION OF CONGRESS TOURISM MATULJI, IČIĆI, MOŠĆENIČKA DRAGA, LOVRAN AND OPATIJA UNDER ONE BRAND – OPATIJA RIVIERA? The bilingual brochure on 84 pages brings a detailed overview of Opatija’s catering facilities and cafes presented with top photos and interesting texts that represent the offer and atmosphere of each restaurant. For each restaurant, the house’s specialties are listed, as well as key information such as awards and recognitions, working hours, payment methods or capacity, and the brochure presents Opatija’s gastronomic events, from Asparagus and wine to the Chocolate Festival, as well as indigenous foods from this region such as Kvarner shrimp, chestnuts or asparagus, stand out from the city of Opatija. Thus, another opportunity was missed to present the mentioned guide about restaurants and taverns of Opatija, as a guide to the gastronomic offer of the entire Opatija Riviera. We have a lot of guides, information, confusion and noise in communication, and the issue of efficiency is questionable. Guests do not know things, do not see or are not interested in where the border is between Rijeka, Opatija, Lovran, etc. jima For them, it is all a destination. They are interested in quality content and experience. The main brand must certainly be Kvarner, so lower communication to other cities, ie joint integrated tourist products. Rijeka, Opatija Riviera, islands (Lošinj and Cres one brand?) Etc.… Photo: Pixabay.comlast_img read more

Important to obtain breast cancer screening

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Cancer Services Program (CSP) of Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady counties would like to take this opportunity to remind your readers about the importance of getting screened for breast cancer. With regular screening, breast cancer is more likely to be detected at an earlier stage when treatment may be most successful. Simply stated, early detection can save lives, and regular screening is the key to early detection.The United States Preventive Task Force Services recommends women ages 50 to 74 years who are at average risk for breast cancer be screened with a mammogram every two years. However, according to data from the New York State Department of Health, there are populations of women who are less likely to have received a mammogram as recommended. These women are the uninsured and those without a regular health care provider.The CSP provides life-saving mammograms to eligible women without health insurance and can help them find a health care provider that they can see regularly. Since our program began, we have helped 2,500 women get screened for cancer in this region. Our program can also help enroll eligible women in the New York State Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program to receive treatment if cancer is found.About one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifeThat means that one out of every eight of The Gazette’s female readers could be at risk for breast cancer. These women are wives, mothers, sisters and friends who are loved, needed, and whose lives matter.We help eligible, uninsured women get free mammograms, and we are here to encourage every woman to get their mammogram.If any woman needs help, call the CSP of Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady Counties at 518-841-3726.Suzanne HagadornAmsterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Three seniors who started as seventh-graders providing veteran experience for Amsterdam golfEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

Residents left out of sewer system

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionTwenty years ago, I was the Democratic chairman of the town of Rotterdam. I asked the supervisor to look into the sewer problems within the town. The percolation tests in Coldbook Estates were getting poor results for water quality.Now the state Department of Transportation is redoing Hamburg Street. Along with this, they are putting in sewer lines. The sewer main from Curry Road is being hooked up to Hamburg Street to the NY Central Railroad tracks, then turning left to be hooked up with the Altamont Avenue line. They are drilling a small line under the tracks to hook up at the city line.However, someone has made a decision to form a sewer district only on the town side of the Hamburg Street bridge. They have discriminated against the owners of about 15 to 20 private homes and businesses on the city side of the bridge by not allowing them to hook up to the sewer system. I have waited years for this system, but I am not allowed to hook up.Did the town or the state discriminate against these residents?John WardRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationRotterdam convenience store operator feels results of having Stewart’s as new neighborCar hits garage in Rotterdam Sunday morning; Garage, car burnEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more

Not all unions are created equal

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion In reference to Frank Coleman’s March 6 letter, there are unions and there are unions. Private-sector unions are and have been badly needed over the years, i.e., to counter the enormous profit pressure on company management. Public-sector unions serve little legitimate purpose, since bureaucrat management is not under similar pressure to control costs. You simply gradually and quietly increase taxes as salaries go up and employees are added.Books have been written arguing the various pros and cons of the above, but fundamentally cost pressure is the issue.Over time, the impact has become huge. For example, the area surrounding the seat of federal government (Washington, D.C.) is by far the richest locale of the nation. Local public-sector workers may manipulate the bureaucratic system and retire on pensions several times that of similar private-sector workers. A private-sector worker can be terminated almost at will; public-sector workers almost cannot be terminated. Now I recognize this is a highly charged, controversial issue. But private and public unions are extremely different in purpose and impact; it could be argued that they should not even be grouped under the same word, union.Clyde MaughanSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashlast_img read more

People should show ID in order to vote

first_imgJust responding to your editorial regarding voter laws where you don’t feel any proof is necessary. In order to get a driver’s license, one has to provide a previous driver’s license, proof of Social Security, a birth certificate, a passport (expired or active), and two third-party documents proving residence.But to vote, in your opinion, what the heck. Just let anyone do so, because obviously, it’s too hard to obtain proof that you are eligible.But to be eligible to drive, that’s a horse of another color. (Just don’t have an accident with the wrong driver.)Get the picture. Oh, I forgot, your media outlet is totally partisan/biased left-wing Democratic. Thanks for listening.HOWARD PHILIPSONSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to online Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Thursday, July 25

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionBike bells work for some, but not allI read with interest Michael Werner’s July 19 letter in which he advocated for bike bells (and not an “On your left” announcement). My interest stems from a recent discovery I made while riding my bike with my husband.Another bicycle was about to overtake us, and the rider used his bell. I could hear it (at the last minute), but my husband could not.We made it out of the way in time, but I’m sure it made the rider behind us either worried or annoyed for a split second. In that moment, I realized my preference for a cheerful voice behind me, letting us know to watch out. I don’t have a bell, and I won’t likely rush out to buy one. But I do appreciate hearing how others perceive the situation on the bike path. I pledge to share the lane safely and respectfully.Brenny RabineSaratoga SpringsMedia deliberately misquotes TrumpWhen I first heard President Trump tweeted to four congressional freshmen women, “Go back to your countries,” initially, it sounded really bad. The press coverage was unified in its reporting that Trump’s tweet was racist. But fake news has become ubiquitous with its agenda to portray the president in the worst possible light. So I researched this claim myself. The mass media recited only a segment of the president’s full tweet, taking it out of context. Here’s what he actually said: “Go back to your countries, fix the problems there — and then come back, and show us how you did it.”Notice how race was never even mentioned here.This kerfuffle is a curtain call of the Charlottesville “Fine People on Both Sides” hoax, where the president was quoted out of context and his clarification was completely omitted.He said: “I’m not talking about Neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they need to be totally condemned.” This disclaimer couldn’t be clearer. Yet, the headlines read, “President Trump said Nazis are fine people too.” The mass media continues this hoax to this day. The mass media doesn’t seem to care it’s destroying itself. Since the release of the Mueller Report, MSNBC has lost 30 percent of its audience. CNN’s ratings have plummeted since Trump took office. Most of the media has allied themselves with Democrats, who seek to fundamentally transform America.When the press is no longer free, history shows us that often tragedy follows.William AikenSchenectadyWhitney a winner  on and off race trackThe passing of Marylou Whitney is a great loss for horse racing and for the Capital Region.I met Marylou over 25 years ago in the backstretch at Saratoga Raceway. I was sitting in my chair on one of the observation decks.Back then you could actually pull your vehicle right up to the fence. I would watch the race from the deck and listen to it on the car radio. Well, up drove a car and guess who emerged? Marylou was wearing a bright yellow jump suit and a large yellow hat. I offered her my chair and she accepted. Her horse was running and once the race started, I turned on the car radio. Marylou came off the deck and opened up the car door and we listened to the finish of the race together.Marylou started skipping down the roadway yelling she won. Marylou gave her trainer a hug and me a thank you and a peck on the cheek. I didn’t bet on her filly, but I felt like a winner anyway. Edward CooperRound LakeMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGov.
