Dillingham Dredging Project on the Table

first_imgThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District, will host a public meeting to gather and consider public comments on the annual maintenance dredging project for Dillingham small boat harbor.The event will be held on Monday, April 1, at 6:30 p.m. at the City Hall Council Chambers, 141 Main Street, Dillingham, Alaska 99576.USACE representatives will be available to answer questions and receive public comments following a brief presentation about the project.The Dillingham Small Boat Harbor is dredged annually due to heavy silting in the basin and the upper entrance channel and would become unusable to the commercial fishing fleet within 1 to 2 years without dredging.According to the Corps, the official dredging window is from May through October, but the traditional dredging window is from May 1 to June 30 to mitigate conflict with the fishing fleet.USACE expects the work to be performed by a hydraulic cutterhead and pipeline suction dredge that pumps the sediment and water through a portable, 12-inch pipeline to a disposal site.last_img read more

Arsene Wenger: Manuel Pellegrini experienced enough to deal with Pep talk

first_img “We go into a top-level game where all the rest will be forgotten and everybody else will just focus on the performance on the day. “The number of goals scored and goals conceded, the number of passes made, percentage of possession, is all very close. If you look at all the numbers (Arsenal and City are very close).” While Monday night’s game will be about two teams with title aspirations, champions Chelsea languish just one point above the relegation zone. After giving his support to Pellegrini, Wenger passed on the opportunity to give his backing to beleaguered Blues boss Jose Mourinho – with whom he has a chequered history. Asked if Chelsea are in a relegation battle, the Frenchman said: “No, (because of) the quality of their team. “If you ask me objectively, will Chelsea go down? I will say ‘no chance’. They are going through a difficult spell but they are not in a relegation battle.” Wenger was then more evasive when questioned on the prospect of Mourinho being sacked. “I do not want to assess any other things about Chelsea,” he said. “It’s not my problem – my problem is the game on Monday night.” He ended the discussion when asked if he had as much sympathy for Mourinho’s plight as he would for other managers by saying: “I just gave you a good answer.” City will go into Monday’s game buoyed by Sergio Aguero’s return to fitness – but Arsenal are not giving up hope on their own talismanic frontman being fit for the clash. Alexis Sanchez picked up a hamstring injury in the recent draw at Norwich but is also back in training, with Wenger revealing the Chile forward could be involved. “Maybe there is a slight chance for Alexis to be in the squad again, but it is too early to be sure about it,” he said. “He is running but not participating in full training.” While the former Barcelona man will be raring to go, Wenger admits he cannot always believe a player who declares himself fit. “Not all of them,” he replied when asked if he trusts all the players who say they are fit to play. “It is not trust in a negative way when I say all of them. Some of them are so keen to forget that they have pain somewhere that they say they are all right when they are not. “You know the players and their psychological profile, you take that into account then you get scientific advice and you trust your gut as well and then you make a decision. “I believe that is normal that he (Sanchez) wants to play. You want him to be keen to play. He respects all the decisions I make and that is what I want from him.” Pellegrini has already dealt with his position being threatened in the past and takes his side to the Emirates Stadium on Monday night looking to beat Arsenal in a match that could potentially see the victors topping the table at Christmas. Wenger acknowledges such rumours can be unsettling, but feels his Chilean rival can deal with such talk. Asked if links to Guardiola could be destabilising to Pellegrini’s ambitions, Wenger replied: “It can be, but Pellegrini is experienced enough to deal with it. “Maybe if it was a very young beginner, it could be destabilising, but I don’t think that at his level it will affect him. “I don’t know if that (the speculation) is down to City – that’s down to media speculation and I don’t know where that comes from. “It’s very difficult to master nowadays, to have this kind of speculation. If you look at Real Madrid, there is always speculation. It looks like it’s part of our job now.” Wenger dismissed any suggestion his side will take advantage of any issues that may arise over the uncertainty of Pellegrini’s situation and wants Arsenal to think only of themselves on Monday. “I believe that what will be an advantage to us is to focus on our performance and not hope for any weakness from City,” he said. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has backed Manchester City counterpart Manuel Pellegrini to cope with the constant speculation linking Pep Guardiola with his job. Press Association With his contract at Bayern Munich ending in the summer and an announcement on his intentions expected next week, Guardiola has been linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League. In varying reports, the Catalan is being lined up by the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and City, should he opt not to extend his stay in Germany. last_img read more

5th Annual Payless variety Store 11-race programme

first_imgAbandoned or cancelled?but  Cyclists still receive prizesTHE Fifth Annual Payless variety Store 11-Race cycle programme was staged yesterday in the National Park,and while the undercard was held without questions, the feature 35-lap event which was opened to school boys, novices and invitational riders,came in for quite a lot of criticisms.That event had 35 cyclists facing the starter, but at the completion of the 19th lap, Jamal John and Raul Leal were able to overtake the leaders,which included Marlon `Fishy’ Williams and a host of other riders who were subsequently ordered by race director Joseph Britton to drop out of the race,which they all refused to do.At this point, Britton took it on his own and walked away from the finish line while the riders continued their journey unsupervised.In the end, Britton stated that he had abandoned the race since he gave instructions for the cyclists who were overtaken by John and Leal to desist from continuing the race but they ignored him.“I tell them to drop out or back(off) because they have been lapped and they refused,so I decided to abandon the race.However, when questioned by Chronicle Sport as to the reason for the race being abandoned by Britton, Mohamed said the event was not abondoned, rather it was called off.Later at the presentation ceremony, John and Leal were announced joint winners of the feature event, while Paul Cho-Wee-Nam, Raynauth Jeffrey, Orville Hinds and Junior Niles were all rewarded for their efforts in placing third, fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.When asked how come the race was abandoned and yet prizes were distributed, race director Britton said it was part of the rules of the Guyana Cycling Federation (GCF), while Mohamed said the race was not abandoned, “it was cancelled.”These two answers left much to be desired and are indeed difficult to comprehend.Meanwhile, in other results from the day’s activity, Alexander Leung won the BMX race for both boys and Girls 6-9 years old two-lap race ahead of Jaren Barrington and Jessica Mohabir, respectively.Terhan Garebarran won the three-lap BMX race for boys 12-14 years ahead of Marvin Knights and Sherwin Sampson respectively.However,Sampson won the BMX boys’ 9-12 years old two-lap race unchallenged.Jaikaran Sukhai was the winner of the five-lap race for veterans under 50 years of age. Second was Junior Niles and third was Eon Jackson.The five-lap race for veterans over 50 years of age was won by Kennard Lovell. Second was Linden Blackman.Julio Melville was the winner of the three-lap mountain bike event. Second was Stephon Gobin, while Lennox Dick placed third.Nigel Dugid won the juveniles’ 10-lap race ahead of Andrew Hicks and Raphael Leung respectively.last_img

Florida State guard Miller uses 13-year-old friend with Treacher Collins Syndrome as motivation

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Florida State senior guard Ian Miller gets great joy out of participating in physical education classes at United Faith Christian Academy.When Miller visits his old school, he hangs out with a 13-year-old named Casey Roffler.Roffler suffers from Treacher Collins Syndrome, a condition that stunts the growth of the face, jaw and chin and can potentially cause life-threatening respiratory problems. He’s inspired Miller to overcome his own adversity, as Miller missed chunks of his first three seasons at Florida State due to academic and injury issues.“He’s like my little brother,” Miller said. “He’s a soldier.”In his freshman and sophomore years, academic ineligibility forced Miller to miss 22 total games. In his junior year, Miller was hampered by injuries, as he missed six games and only averaged 5.3 points.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis year, he’s only missed two games and is averaging 13.6 points and 3.0 assists, good for second and first on the team, respectively.“He’s had some challenges,” FSU head coach Leonard Hamilton said. “As a result of those challenges, I think he’s matured, grown up and that’s one of the reasons why he’s playing so well now.”Miller’s struggles aren’t quite as severe as Roffler’s, but the lesson is the same.Roffler underwent 15 surgeries in the first 12 years of his life. Despite the time he’s spent in Levine Children’s Hospital, Roffler still performs at a high standard both in the classroom and on the athletic fields.“He showed me how to fight each and every day,” Miller said. “If he can get up and do it, why can’t I?”That attitude, one that Miller has adapted in part because of his relationship with Roffler, has made him a more mature player and person as he leads the Seminoles into the home stretch of their season.“I could’ve quit, dropped out of college, a lot of things a lot of people do,” Miller said “But I decided to stick to it, fight and really become a man.”Miller’s roommate and fellow senior Okaro White has known Miller since well before college. The two attended camps and played together throughout their high school AAU days.White has been right there with Miller along his roller-coaster ride and has seen promising changes from someone he calls his “lifelong brother.”“I think he’s learned over his four years,” White said. “He’s matured and learned how to overcome adversity. I think that’s the biggest thing with him.”Miller noted that his attitude toward life changed after meeting Roffler. After seeing his points per game average drop five total points from his sophomore to junior year, Miller had no reason to be happy.But it was the outlook of the 13-year-old that kept Miller’s head up.“He didn’t look like the rest of the kids in his class,” Miller said. “But if you’ve seen him playing around, you couldn’t tell.“To see someone free like that and in their own world, living carefree but so loving, it helps you develop a humble attitude.”Hamilton recognized the efforts Miller has made to turn the struggles he has had into positive opportunities.As a player who played at 222 pounds last year, Miller has cut that to 198 pounds for his senior season.Miller’s improved physical condition has helped him become a more versatile player. Not only that, but he’s also demonstrated the leadership qualities expected of a senior guard.“He’s running the team when we have him at the one,” Hamilton said. “When we put him at the two, he’s a lot more aggressive.“He’s found a way to mix in being offensively productive and also running the team, so he’s at a good place for him.”But Miller may not be at that “good place” without the help of someone nine years younger.Roffler has been Miller’s inspiration, and as Florida State makes one last push at an NCAA Tournament berth, its senior leader will always keep his hero in mind.Said Miller: “He’s the definition of a Seminole.” Comments Published on March 6, 2014 at 12:28 am Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidmanlast_img read more

Sea Bright Taxes To Rise By Less Than A Cent

first_imgBy John BurtonSEA BRIGHT — At a regular meeting of the governing body Tuesday, the borough council introduced its proposed municipal budget of $3.9 million, one that would increase the tax rate to .765 cents for each assessed $100 of property.Councilman William Keeler, who chairs the council’s finance committee, said the borough has lost nearly $600,000 in state aid in the last decade, with $135,000 lost to the borough in 2012.“If not for this loss of funding,” Keeler said, “the borough’s conservative strategy would have resulted in no tax increase for 2011 nor 2012.”Keeler went on to say borough property owners pay $1,000 less a year in property taxes than the county or state average.The projected increase would mean that the owner of a $300,000 home would pay an additional $80.10 for the year, Keeler said. That would bring the municipal portion of the tax bill for the $300,000 homeowner to $2,295, according to Michael Bascom, the borough’s chief financial officer.This budget reflects a 2.3 percent spending increase from the 2011 budget, Keeler said.“I feel that it is a responsible and practical budget that maintains our present level of service,” Mayor Dina Long said following the meeting.“Just like everywhere else,” she continued, “in Sea Bright we’ve perfected the art of doing more with less.”Officials plan to hold their formal budget hearing on April 17, Keeler said.last_img read more
