The deadline to apply for the Hope Scholarship was Monday, and applications were received on behalf of 118 students in Ohio County Schools, according to Superintendent Kim Miller. As such, if all 118 applications are approved in Ohio County, that would result in a financial loss to Ohio County Schools of $507,234.80Ohio County Schools received $18,491,629 in state aid for fiscal year 2022, according to Steven Bieniek, business manager for Ohio County Schools. “It’s because we have so many educational opportunities in Ohio County – public, private and parochial,” Miller said of Ohio County’s larger total. Other county school superintendents believe Ohio County won’t be the only school district that will lose a sizeable chunk of funding. Tyler County Schools Superintendent Shane Highley added school districts with higher numbers of Hope Scholarship students would be most affected.

The Portland program is in contrast to Halifax’s Mental Health Mobile Crisis Unit, which is run as a partnership among the NSHA, IWK, and HRP. I am a queer researcher and a queer resident of Halifax; I see queer stories everywhere. Making queer spaces includes creating an attractive, safe environment for queer people to work and be in; this will encourage queer people to show up. I am personally deeply attached to the queer café as a space of massive potential for studying queer life because of my own lived experience in and out of work. In my view, queer heritage work might no longer mean protecting existing queer spaces or keeping spaces on life support that are no longer working for communities, but identifying and highlighting the queer experience in the everyday life of Halifax’s urban organism.
