China Grove had the Independence Day parade on the Fourth of July for 10 years. When they stopped having it, we didn’t want the parade to stop so the Meeksville Volunteer Fire Department took it on.

And we wanted to do like they did in China Grove, let anybody that wanted to be in the parade be in the parade.”center_img Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Book Nook to reopen Print Article Email the author Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories “But we don’t want anybody to be left out, Green said. “Even if you don’t register, just come on and get in line.

first_imgMonaco, Principality of Monaco | AFP | The governing body of world athletics on Tuesday maintained Russia’s ban from track and field over mass state-backed doping, citing two conditions before the powerhouse can return to international competition.Rune Andersen, head of the IAAF’s taskforce on Russia, said Russian authorities, in the form of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), had to grant access to data from testing of samples at a Moscow laboratory from 2011 to 2015.The second condition is that Russia must pay the IAAF’s costs incurred in the work of the taskforce and in bringing or defending Russian cases at the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS).Access to the samples would hand the Athletics Integrity Unit, the independent body that manages all doping and non-doping integrity-related matters in athletics, the opportunity to determine whether any suspicious findings should be investigated.– ‘No assurances’ –“I hope they’ll deliver the data by the end of this year,” Andersen said of the samples taken and stored in the Moscow laboratory. “But I cannot go any further than that.“We’ve received no assurances it will be delivered to us directly.“Assurances have been given to WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) and WADA have set a deadline of December 31 to receive the data. We’ll have to rely on receiving the data from WADA before handing it to the AIU to examine the data before we are satisfied that the data is correct data.”The International Association of Athletics Federation’s decision means Russia will not, for the moment, be able to compete under its own flag at the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow in February 2019, with the IAAF Council not scheduled to meet again until March.Russian athletics federation (RUSAF) president Dmitry Shlyaktin said the decision was no surprise.“It is not a surprise but we did have hope, because RUSAF has worked very hard (to comply with IAAF demands),” he told Interfax news agency.He said negotiations were underway on debt repayment and access to doping control data.Andersen insisted that the task force’s relationship with the Russians was “business-like” and expressed the view that the end was in sight after three years of talks, longer than expected.“We see the glimmer of light (at the end of the tunnel) all the time,” he added. “There has been progress all the way. Many of the criteria has been met by Russia, either by USAF or Russian authorities,” he said. Share on: WhatsApp – ‘Finely worded’ –Andersen, however, dodged the politically sensitive question of whether he thought Russia had truly acknowledged the findings of the McLaren and Schmid reports, a major sticking point on the taskforce’s initial criteria.“We consider that the substance of what was in the Schmid report has been met, that has been acknowledged by Russia,” Andersen said, adding that the major difference between that and the McLaren report was the absence of a reference to Russia’s FSB security service.“There has been an acknowledgement of the involvement of persons in the state, that is clear. Whether that means that you can draw that line to say that it has been an acknowledgement of state-sponsored doping, that remains for everyone to determine on what’s been written, but it’s been finely worded by Russia.”Russia’s athletics federation was initially banned by the IAAF in November 2015 over allegations of widespread government-backed doping fraud.Its athletics team was barred from the 2016 Rio Olympics and also missed the IAAF World Championships in London a year later.A number of Russian athletes, however, have been granted permission by the IAAF to compete as neutrals after meeting the exceptional eligibility criteria, essentially demonstrating that they have come through transparent anti-doping testing.The International Olympic Committee lifted its ban on Russia at the end of the Pyeongchang Olympics while WADA in September lifted its ban on RUSADA for non-compliance.WADA drew heavy international criticism when it voted to declare RUSADA “compliant”, before being granted access to Moscow raw data.It responded by promising it will impose new sanctions if Russia did not cooperate by December 31 and a team visited the Russian capital last week and another is due next week to carry out an audit.The WADA decision led RUSAF to appeal against its IAAF suspension at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.last_img read more

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK — Expect discussions on the construction of a parking garage in downtown Red Bank to come up again at borough council meetings in the near future, says Mayor Pasquale Menna.Business owners and developers are already expressing interest in a parking garage after a lull brought on by a series of economically difficult years.Given that interest, Menna said, the time might be right to start talking about a public/private collaboration to fund the constsruction of a parking deck at the White Street municipal parking lot.“I think in the next few months there will be some action by the [borough] council on a number of comprehensive garage, parking/public use initiatives,” he said.Red Bank RiverCenter has been talking with “people who may be interested,” in pursuing this, the mayor said, but declined to name the interested parties.Any such partnership would include some stipulations, Menna said, including that the garage would be a revenue generator for the municipality; that resident taxpayers wouldn’t pay for the facility’s construction; and that, in addition to containing parking stalls, the garage would have some additional public use.“It’s got to be a creative use and we’re open to suggestions,” he said.One other condition, Menna attached: “It can’t be a big box with a housing element on top.”The shortfall in parking spaces has long been a problem for elected officials and local businesses and at times has become a heated political issue. More than a decade ago, then Mayor Edward J. McKenna Jr. and some of his Democratic borough council colleagues proposed bonding for $11 million dollars to construct a municipally owned and operated parking deck at the White Street lot. The downtown business alliance, Red Bank RiverCenter, strongly supported the project and McKenna argued that the garage would help not only the businesses, but the whole community.Republican candidates for municipal office waged a successful campaign encouraging residents to voice objections to their tax dollars being used for the project.Menna, a Democrat, at that time eventually said he would vote against it, and with the others opposed, the bond ordinance was withdrawn.Since then RiverCenter and members of the downtown business community have continued to advocate for a parking garage as a way of keeping commercial activity alive in Red Bank.New proposals have been discussed, including those that would contain retail or housing components; but none of them have moved beyond the discussion stage.Now, Menna believes, business and constsruction projects are moving forward again and the time has come to revisit the idea of a parking garage.“It’s very easy to put up a parking meter and collect a fee on the parking stall,” he said, explaining his reasoning. “But is that the most creative and the best use for the taxpayers who need relief?”Menna declined to be nailed down as to when these proposals would become public. But he did hint that there would be other significant news about forthcoming businesses. “And they will be extraordinary for the municipality, in terms of people who are going to move in to work in town,” he said.last_img read more

first_img­­­­­­By Mary Ann BourbeauWEST LONG BRANCH – Monmouth University will now be the official archival repository for Bruce Springsteen’s written works, photographs, periodicals and artifacts.The creation of the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music, a collaborative partnership between the rocker and the university, was announced on Jan. 10 during “A Conversation with Bruce Springsteen,” held at the university’s Pollak Theatre.“Monmouth University is excited by the opportunity to grow our relationship with Bruce Springsteen,” said Monmouth University President Paul R. Brown. “The establishment of the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music celebrates and reinforces the Jersey Shore’s legacy in the history of American music while providing a truly transformative experience for our students.”Springsteen said he was honored yet humbled that this new center was being formed to honor his respected body of work.The new collaboration builds on a relationship the university has with the The Boss.The Bruce Springsteen Special Collection at Monmouth University opened on campus in 2011. It is a research facility that contains 35,000 items from nearly 47 countries, covering every stage of Springsteen’s career – books, magazines, fanzines, newspaper articles, comic books, tour books, academic journals and papers. The new center will build on that, promoting the legacy of Springsteen and his role in American music while celebrating other icons, including Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams and Frank Sinatra.“We are excited about the opportunities this creates for our students and the community,” said Joe Rapolla, chair of the Music and Theatre Department and director of the Music Industry Program at the university. “Bruce has a long history at Monmouth, and we look forward to adhering to his high standards of excellence as we begin this new venture.”After the announcement was made, the conversation with Springsteen began, moderated by Robert Santelli, a former music professor at Monmouth University. Santelli currently serves as executive director of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The two spent time talking about Springsteen’s early history in the Long Branch area, where he played dozens of concerts, nine of them on the Monmouth College campus. Many were with his early bands – the Castiles, Earth, Steel Mill and Dr. Zoom & the Sonic Boom.“I remember playing on the great lawn out back in my shirtless days,” he said. “We played here in the gym. We had a pretty good local audience. Those were big shows for us in those days. We pulled in a couple of thousand people. At a buck a head, you could live for a long time on that.”Springsteen spoke of the small house he lived in on West End Court, where he wrote most of his breakthrough album, “Born to Run.” He also reminisced about playing at the Upstage Club, a small venue above a beauty salon in Asbury Park, and about the up-and-coming bands he saw in Convention Hall, such as The Who, when they opened for Herman’s Hermits.“The scene was pretty rich with musicians,” he said. “There were a lot of venues for commercial acts and Top 40 bands. But if you played original music, it was tough to find a place to play. It was difficult to find a paying job.”Santelli noted that back in those days, the Jersey Shore didn’t have the national reputation for its music scene that it has today.“It had the reputation of a place you want to get out of,” Santelli said.Springsteen noted that he read in the newspaper the day before that New Jersey leads the nation with the highest number of residents exiting the state for elsewhere.“I made my living writing about moving away,” he said. “Maybe there was something to that.”He spoke of his early creative process, when he was greatly influenced by the songs of Bob Dylan and Tim Buckley.“I decided I was going to be a poet even though I don’t read poetry,” he said. “I had a rhyming dictionary and I was going with it 100 percent. The entire ‘Blinded by the Light’ came from that dictionary.”Once “Born to Run” was released, Springsteen became such a success that in October 1975, he was famously on the cover of Time and Newsweek at the same time.“It was a big deal,” Springsteen said. “For the young people in the audience, Time and Newsweek were magazines. I’ve actually outlived them.”After the 90-minute conversation ended, Springsteen answered some questions from the audience in the 700-seat auditorium. One man wanted to know why Springsteen decided to play the Super Bowl half-time show.“They were asking me to do it for about 10 years but it seemed a little on the cheesy side, like the music was incidental,” he said.As the years went on, he became more impressed with the production of the shows and decided to take on the challenge.“It was the most terrifying and thrilling 12 minutes of my work life,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – For Mayor Gerard Scharfenberger, last year was “a magnificent banner year.” He is predicting more good things for the township in 2017.Scharfenberger, who served as last year’s mayor, was again selected by the five-member Township Committee to serve as mayor for the year at the township’s reorganization meeting, held on New Year’s Day.Scharfenberger and his running mate Kevin Settembrino were re-elected in November, again securing the Republican’s exclusive majority for the five-member governing body, as they were sworn in for another three-year term.Committee member Stephanie C. Murray was selected through a unanimous vote to serve this year as deputy mayor.Scharfenberger said he was “both humbled and honored” to again serve as mayor as he spoke to a large audience that included state and county elected officials, families, as well as township employees and appointed volunteers. Looking back at the year just past, Scharfenberger referenced such developments as the Memorial Sloan Kettering outpatient cancer care facility newly opened in the township, renovating the decade-long vacant Alcatel-Lucent Red Hill Road site.The municipality transitioned to using the county 911 emergency system, which the mayor said “has been very smooth.” Another high point, he noted, was the establishment of a county waterfront park at the site of Chris’ Marina, overlooking the Swimming River, in the township’s River Plaza section. The park is “a huge win” for the township, the mayor said.Another noteworthy success is the township farmer’s market established last year and operated at the township’s commuter train parking. The response to it, Scharfenberger noted, was “overwhelmingly positive.”Much like Memorial Sloan Kettering’s renovation and redevelopment of an existing site, Scharfenberger pointed to the township committee’s support of the credo of “Utilize what’s existing” before building new. Another example of that is the redevelopment of the former Pathmark supermarket and the shopping center at Highway 35 and New Monmouth Road, with the recent opening of a T.J. Maxx department store, the forthcoming Bed Bath & Beyond at the shopping center and the redoing of the shopping center’s entire façade. That location, he said, “promises to be a successful and profitable” retail location.In the coming year, the community will look to work with county and state officials on the Port Belford redevelopment project and for a Highway 36 upgrade project extending from the township’s Ideal Beach area to Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook, at the Sea Bright border.There are other challenges that local elected officials will continue to address, Scharfenberger maintained. They include the impact of the heroin/opioid epidemic that is afflicting all communities with the mayor vowing the township “will not be silent” in combating it.A major concern remains property taxes and Scharfenberger said he “hopes legislators will look at alternatives” to funding public education to offer relief to homeowners.Overall, “Middletown is in extraordinary good health” and he, his fellow township committee members and township employees, along with the scores of volunteers will continue to put forth “110 percent effort, every step of the way,” Scharfenberger said.last_img read more

first_img8 April 2013 South African companies and institutions with the right expertise may be eligible for financial assistance on a shared cost, shared risk basis towards participating in the design phase of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope, SKA South Africa announced last week. The SKA project is an international effort to build the world’s largest radio telescope, which will be co-hosted by South Africa and Australia. Last month, the International SKA Organisation issued an invitation for international consortia to bid for work packages in the pre-construction phase of the SKA, involving the design of the telescope architecture and sub-systems, including components such as antennas, receivers, signal processing systems, data transport and high performance computers. The overall aim of this phase, which is expected to run through to the end of 2016, is to deliver detailed designs and blueprints for the SKA facility to go out to tender for construction. Last week, Dr Jasper Horrell, general manager of science computing and innovation at SKA South Africa, said the SKA was “an iconic and global science project, and we are excited to be able to assist local industry and institutions with appropriate skills in participation in the initial design phase. “This involvement should serve to strengthen the global competitiveness of local organisations in high-tech domains, focused on the SKA, but extending beyond radio astronomy,” Horrell said in a statement. Expressions of interest are invited from registered South African organisations wishing to participate as partners in the SKA South Africa response to the request for proposal for the SKA pre-construction phase. According to SKA South Africa, financial assistance for local companies and organisations is being targeted in the areas of dishes, central signal processors, science data processors, and signal and data transport, synchronisation and timing. “SKA South Africa will facilitate the introduction of programme partners into the appropriate work package consortia.” Instructions for registering interest, and pre-qualification application forms for financial assistance, are available from public.ska.ac.za/industry. Organisations must respond before 17h00 on 22 April (SAST). For more information on the bid process, financial assistance and work package areas, organisations that fit the participation criteria are encouraged to attend an information day at SKA South Africa’s Johannesburg and Cape Town offices, linked via telecon, at 13h30 on 12 April. Places at the information day may be limited; organisations wishing to attend should RSVP by e-mail to [email protected] by 3pm on 9 April. More information can be obtained from Carla Sharpe at [email protected] Details of the request for proposals issued by the International SKA Organisation are available at www.skatelescope.org/publications/request-for-proposals. Formal responses are due by 10 June. SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
