Work begins on La Center sewer line

first_imgLA CENTER — A project that should lay the groundwork for new business in La Center is underway.Tapani Inc. broke ground July 17 on a project to install a new pump station and sewer line east of Interstate 5, at the western end of the city. When completed, the pipeline will link the city’s wastewater treatment plant to the I-5 La Center junction.The availability of sewer services should trigger commercial development closer to the freeway and to the stream of traffic en route to the 3-month-old Ilani Casino Resort, said land-use consultant Eric Eisemann.“Before the casino was a reality, the city was looking for a way to open up the junction for development, but they didn’t have a sewer line there,” he said. “Developments will probably be more attracted to the area due to our neighbor to the west.”Some businesses have already talked to city representatives, but nothing is set in stone.“Development is hard to predict, but there are definitely some people hoping to build as soon as we get done with the sewer line,” Eisemann said.The new infrastructure is the result of a $5 million grant from the Cowlitz Tribe, as part of an intergovernmental agreement dating to February 2016. The tribe originally planned to link Iliani’s wastewater system to La Center’s treatment facility, but that was ultimately found to violate land-use planning policies.last_img read more

PLAYERS CONTRACT TERMINATION

first_imgBy Sulayman BahUncapped Gambian player Dawda Ngum’s decision to break his contract is one that has come not without controversy.Ngum left his club on mutual consent this week barely one year into his two-year contract.Trelleborg FF, a third tier side who secured the central midfielder last year, on Tuesday announced they’ve parted ways with the Gambian ‘in good form.’The announcement to let go the 24-year-old followed several meetings between the player and the club’s board.The meeting reached a consensus for Ngum and the club to go their separate ways. The move means, the relegation threatened third division side will have to do without the 24-year-old who’d been the continuously in the middle of the park during last campaign.Mattias Kronvall Trelleborg Sports director wasn’t forthcoming when questioned whether the alleged event has triggered any unrest within the current squad.The player has not immediately replied to the allegation when contacted by Foroyaa Sport yesterday.TFF stares relegation in the face as they sit four places from the table basement on twenty-seven points in twenty-three league matches.Dawda featured thirteen times this current season as opposed to his twenty-one season-match last term.]]>last_img read more

Minister Pintard Encourages Bahamians to Use Athletes Achievers in their Branding

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 10, 2017 – Nassau – During a recent courtesy call with Bahamian Atlanta Braves baseball player, Anfernee Seymour, Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon. Michael Pintard encouraged Bahamian businesses to use Bahamians who are achievers – especially in the athletic field – in their corporate branding.“The idea is to assist the professional baseball player in building his brand,” Minister Pintard said.   “The Ministry supports our professional athletes and we believe that they represent a powerful brand that can assist companies in getting their message out, while the companies, themselves, invest in their continued success.”“In addition many of these athletes are wonderful role models who have incredible stories – about rising from humble beginnings to making it in the professional ranks – who have a passion for their country and proudly wear our banner as they travel internationally,” he added.Anfernee – who considers himself an ambassador for The Bahamas – said that after meeting with Minister Pintard, he felt encouraged, and that he had taken “a step forward.”   Anfernee – who currently plays centre field with the Braves – said that he started baseball at Freedom Farms at three-years old.   He added that he attended Xavier’s Lower School and then St. Augustine’s College, until he left to finish high school in the United States.When he graduated from high school, he noted, he was selected by the Miami Marlins in the seventh round of the amateur draft.“In 2016, I was traded to the Atlanta Braves,” Anfernee said. “We won the Lower A title and this year was my first full year in the Atlanta Braves.”Anfernee said that it is an honour to be from The Bahamas.   He said: “Every where I go people ask me, ‘Oh, you’re from The Bahamas?   I was just there.  It was so nice.   It was beautiful.’   I help to brand The Bahamas and I work to bring joy to a country that is so small.   It is a great honour.”He pointed out that he has had the support of fellow Bahamians, even having a number of them send him messages on social media, stating that they were watching him play on television.“It’s fun and exciting,” he added.Anfernee said that it was wonderful having his mother Jeannie Scavella in his corner and cheering for him.   “She’s my number one fan,” he said with a smile.   “It’s hard to explain.   She’s amazing.”Anfernee also tipped his hat to fellow Bahamians who are currently playing baseball and recognized those who came before them, creating the opportunities that they now have today.   Minister Pintard said that it is a part of the responsibility of being the Ministry for youth and sports to support the young athletes’ continued success.“We are encouraging companies to invest in these athletes and we would also like them to support these athletes as they go throughout our communities and schools speaking to young people about making positive lifestyle choices,” Minister Pintard said.By Eric Rose (BIS)Photo Caption: Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon.

Nagelsmann Im worried my RB Leipzig move will make players dissatisfied

first_imgHoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann admits he’s worried that his impending switch to RB Leipzig this summer will create further dissatisfaction for his squadAfter taking charge of Hoffenheim in February 2016, Nagelsmann has become one of Europe’s most exciting young coaches at the age of 31 following back-to-back top-four finishes in the Bundesliga.But Leipzig made a surprise announcement last summer by revealing that Nagelsmann will become their new manager for the 2019/20 campaign.And the German admits he’s worried over how his players will handle this with Hoffenheim down in seventh in the standings this season.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“If a player is dissatisfied and knows that the coach will no longer be there in the summer, there is always the danger that the dissatisfaction will grow a bit more and that more will be made known,” Nagelsmann told Bild.“But it makes little sense for a player now to not give everything he can or to be more angry.”Hoffenheim owner Dietmar Hopp confirmed last month they’ve interviewed a candidate to replace Nagelsmann with Red Bull Salzburg manager Marco Rose being the reported favourite.last_img read more

Evacuations lifted as recordsetting Tuna Fire continues to burn in Los Angeles

first_img KUSI Newsroom, SUN VALLEY (KUSI) — There were no visible flames in the Verdugo Mountains Monday, and firefighters continued to concentrate their efforts on putting out embers and digging fire lines around the 7,003 acres of brush that burned over the Labor Day weekend.Los Angeles Fire Department Deputy Chief Trevor Richmond told reporters at a 4 p.m. briefing that there was little change from last night. The briefing included fire chiefs from Burbank, Glendale, an assistant L.A. County fire chief and State Sen. Anthony Portantino, who represents parts of Burbank and the Sunland-Tujunga area.“We still have 1,061 firefighters manning the lines this afternoon,” Richmond said. “Containment is still at 30 percent. There was 7,003 acres burned. All mandatory evacuation orders in Los Angeles, Glendale and Burbank have been lifted. Our evacuation centers in Los Angeles are closed but could re-open if necessary.“The Foothill (210) Freeway was re-opened with the exception of some on-ramps and off-ramps that remain closed,” Richmond continued.Eight injuries were reported including four firefighters, three of whom suffered heat-related illnesses and one some slight burns.The cause of the fire remained under investigation, Richmond said.Portatino said he was on the 210 Freeway today and saw some hot spots being put out by firefighters. He also said that law enforcement would temporarily maintain its presence in the neighborhoods affected by the fire to maintain public safety.Both Richmond and Portatino also emphasized that the weather had changed for the better overnight and the change really helped the fire crews do their work more easily and safely.Earlier, LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas told reporters that hand crews will continue to be out there clearing brush.“There is no active fire yet,’” Terrazas said. “But that could change with the wind. Fire operations are not over. There is still a lot of work to be done.”Bulldozers were used today to reconstruct fire lines dug in haste when the fire broke out Saturday, he said.Temperatures only reached the high 80s today in the fire area, with winds at 3 to 10 miles per hour and a relative humidity at 40 to 45 percent.“Overnight, the weather cooperated and we received some rain. It appears, at least for now, that the fire in the Burbank hillside has laid down significantly. We no longer have any evacuation orders in place in the City of Burbank,” Burbank Police Sgt. Derek Green said.Mayor Eric Garcetti said that most or all of the 1,400 evacuated Los Angeles residents were expected to go home by the end of today.The Foothill (210) Freeway was reopened Sunday, connecting the San Fernando Valley to Pasadena. Fire trucks remained on freeway lanes next to the fire, however.Garcetti welcomed a state of emergency declared in Los Angeles County by Gov. Jerry Brown, saying the decision placed the fire at the highest priority and would bring new resources to fighting it.Gov. Jerry Brown has declared the scene a state emergency, and Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger told reporters the county would issue its state of emergency Tuesday, after the holiday.Two firefighters taken to hospitals during the second day of the fire for heat-related illnesses had stable life signs Terrazas said.A third firefighter was treated for a heat-related illness Sunday, a fourth was treated for burns and a volunteer Community Emergency Response Team member was medically evaluated although the nature of the illness was not released.Three homes were destroyed and one was damaged by flames, along with some miscellaneous sheds, outhouses and stables, Terrazas said.“We believe two of three had no brush clearance,” he said. “So I can’t emphasize enough the importance of a minimum — within L.A. city — a minimum of 200 feet brush clearance, that’s brush from your home.  If there is no defensive space we cannot protect your house.”There was also a drone in the area on Sunday that caused “minimal” impact, he said, adding that the object might have been in the air for at least 15 minutes before witnessed reported the sighting. Police were unable to locate a suspect, he said.“If a drone is the air, we cannot launch or helicopters or fixed wings,” Terrazas said.
