Report Reply 0 replies · active 359 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down WHSFAN · 359 weeks ago We didnt have the money to complete some basic sidewalk upgrades at the remaining schools but some way we have found money to extend a sewer line to a point where nothing exist. That makes so much sense!!!! Why not use the money that they suddenly have to finish the sidewalks around these schools which is likely a very small portion of what the sewer line would cost, and then use the rest for basic street projects…I drove from Woodlawn west down 9th street this week and I just about lost my fillings because of how rough the patch jobs are and how unlevel each intersection is to the cross street. Yes the city is working on many street projects right now, Great Job, but lets get aggressive and make sure we just don’t stop with those. Forget the sewer line to nowhere and lets make our streets smoother. Report Reply 0 replies · active 359 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 359 weeks ago Build it, they will come.

Yes. It shows forethought and that area is just primed to grow. The council should get a commitment from a hotel developer first. No. We have other expenses to worry about. I’m undecided.

Paris, France | AFP | UEFA opened a “formal investigation” into Paris Saint-Germain on Friday after the French club broke the world transfer record to sign Neymar.European football’s governing body said it would look at whether PSG had violated its Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.“The investigation will focus on the compliance of the club with the break-even requirement, particularly in light of its recent transfer activity,” UEFA said in a statement.PSG signed Brazilian striker Neymar for a world-record 222 million euros ($264 million) on August 3 and completed a loan move for Kylian Mbappe on Thursday in a deal that includes an option to buy the French teenager for 180 million euros.“In the coming months, the Investigatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body will regularly meet in order to carefully evaluate all documentation pertaining to this case,” the statement added.“UEFA considers Financial Fair Play to be a crucial governance mechanism which aims to ensure the financial sustainability of European club football.” The FFP system was first approved by UEFA in 2010 to try and combat soaring debts in the game.From 2013 to 2015 clubs could only post a net total loss of 45 million euros, which was reduced to 30 million for the next three years, running until 2018.Non-compliance with the rules can result in a series of disciplinary measures, ranging from a warning to the deduction of points, and even exclusion from European competition.PSG have already incurred sanctions for a previous violation and were slapped with a 60-million-euro fine, 40 million of which suspended, in 2014, and saw their squad for the Champions League cut from 25 to 21 players.Share on: WhatsApp
The highly rated Highlander only made himself available this week after voluntarily sitting out the recent Rugby Championship to deal with fitness and personal issues.Anton Lienert-Brown, Jack Goodhue and fellow veteran Ryan Crotty join Williams in the centres, leaving Laumape on the outer.As expected, Hansen is persisting with his new tactic of using two playmakers — Richie Mo’unga at fly-half and Beauden Barrett at fullback — to counter opponents’ rush defence.An excellent Super Rugby season sees Brad Weber join TJ Perenara and Aaron Smith in the three halfbacks selected by Hansen.Rieko Ioane, Sevu Reece and George Bridge ensure the defending champions have potency on both wings, along with the versatile Jordie Barrett.Ben Smith remains in the mix, although recent poor form and Hansen’s tactical switch mean he is more likely to feature on the wing than at fullback.Hansen acknowledged the All Blacks’ rivals had closed the gap on his team but warned the weight of expectation could be overwhelming for those not used to facing it.“This World Cup looks like it’s going to be the most fiercely contested yet, with a number of teams thinking that they’re going to win it,” he said.“This is where I think we have a small advantage — we live here all the time,” he said.The All Blacks begin their World Cup defence with a blockbuster clash against South Africa on September 21, seeking to dominate a group that also includes Italy, Namibia and Canada.New Zealand:Forwards (17)Dane Coles, Liam Coltman, Codie Taylor, Nepo Laulala, Joe Moody, Atu Moli, Angus Ta’avao, Ofa Tuungafasi, Scott Barrett, Brodie Retallick, Patrick Tuipulotu, Sam Whitelock, Sam Cane, Luke Jacobson, Kieran Read (captain), Ardie Savea, Matt Todd.Backs (14)TJ Perenara, Aaron Smith, Brad Weber, Beauden Barrett, Richie Mo’unga, Ryan Crotty, Jack Goodhue, Anton Lienert-Brown, Sonny Bill Williams, Jordie Barrett, George Bridge, Rieko Ioane, Sevu Reece, Ben Smith.Share on: WhatsApp Sonny Bill Williams was named in New Zealand’s World Cup squad, giving him the chance to lift the trophy for a third time.Auckland, New Zealand | AFP | All Blacks selectors backed star centre Sonny Bill Williams to help achieve an unprecedented World Cup treble in Japan but dumped veteran prop Owen Franks from their 31-man squad on Wednesday.The axing of 108-Test stalwart Franks was the major surprise, although the defending champions also had no room for rampaging midfielder Ngani Laumape or rejuvenated flanker Liam Squire.They did, however, keep faith with struggling back Ben Smith as the New Zealanders target a third straight World Cup title and fourth overall.Williams is among a trio of players hoping to secure a personal treble in Japan, alongside captain Kieran Read and lock Sam Whitelock.Another nine members of the squad tasted success at the last rugby showpiece in Britain four years ago, while 19 are World Cup debutants.The squad collectively boasts 1,195 Test caps and has eight players aged 30-plus.Coach Steve Hansen said winning three titles in a row was “an awesome challenge”.“We know it’s going to be hard, we know it’s going to be tough… we’re looking forward to taking that pressure head-on,” he said.Williams, the oldest member of the squad at 34, defied his doubters after an injury-plagued season to play a key role in this month’s 36-0 victory over the Wallabies in Auckland.He is now studying for a coaching certificate and another world crown might be enough to persuade him to call time on a remarkable career that also includes two rugby league NRL titles and victory in seven heavyweight boxing bouts.– ‘Most fiercely contested’ Cup –Hansen said two-time World Cup winner Franks had fallen victim to changes in the game, with the likes of Atu Moli and Angus Ta’avao offering more versatility.“We believe the game requires us to have big, mobile number ones and threes (props),” he said.Hookers Dane Coles, Codie Taylor and Liam Coltman were always regarded as certainties, with Coles probably edging Taylor as preferred starter.Brodie Retallick returns from a shoulder injury to partner Whitelock in the locks, backed up by Patrick Tuipulotu and Scott Barrett, who can also play in the back row.Read, Ardie Savea, Matt Todd and Luke Jacobson make up the rest of the loose forwards, with Squire’s bid for late inclusion falling flat.
BILL NEAL :10 Mixed Doubles Tennis Update: #1 “Joyce” didn’t win, #2 “Ernie” didn’t win, #3 “Fred” didn’t win, #4 “Wade” didn’t win…MORE AT ELEVEN!!:09 The problem for the Pirates is very clear. They have hit a collective wall, like, I said last week and now you see it. Tired bats, tired arms, tired mentally …just tired man! :08 Yeah, Mike Wallace is back! No big deal. He’s just another member on the team right? He’s not special right? All he does is run a 4.2 40-yard dash, make the defense put two men on him at all times and stretch the field to Mexico and back…yeah, no big deal huh!:07 You know my call. Let’s get out and support our City League football players and the few teams we have left. Hey, I know, we’re down to “6” schools, but we still have to support the kids. Now get going… “The House, The House, The House will never fall” …well, maybe not!:06 If you haven’t heard by now, Tyler Scott, the great player from Gateway High School who is also their all-time leading scorer, just took his above the rim game to Kent State. Just remember what I told you at the top of last season. In two years, Scott will be a star somewhere…Kent State is that somewhere. Take it to the bank!:05 Oh yeah, Dwayne and Joy Woodruff didn’t win the tennis tournament either…my bad. I didn’t know you knew already… yeah, I know that but, you still have to wait until they play…but they still look fantastic walking towards the courts!:04 Dr. Alton Powe, you’re still the coolest cat in town. Great to see you Slippery Rock alum.:03 A little late but, just as important, here’s a massive slam dunk for the late great Schenley Spartan Archie McGill. Those that were there will tell you he was as good as anyone on that ’66 dream team with Kenny Durrett…and was left-handed as “Powe” pointed out. Making killing ya that much easier. McGill report to heaven and join the team. Durrett, Gilliam, Lewis, Kelly, Lucas, Gissendaner, Richardson, Walker, Macklin, Pryor, Tuna Fish… everybody pick up your gear, game time at 8. Don’t worry, no practice required!!!:02 Ms. Payne, Richelle, Ricky, Rik, “Lemon Wish” …I’m just saying.:01 The Last Great Car Cruise by Champions and the United Rays Corvette Club coming soon. More details next week, but get ready, you know it’s gonna be big!~GAME OVER~
