Ocean City to Spend $2.7 Million to Haul Away Dredge Spoils

first_imgShallow water at the end of the lagoon along W. 17th Street.Ocean City will spend about $2.7 million to start bringing boating and swimming at low tide back to the bay.In a unanimous vote Thursday with no discussion, City Council awarded a $2,689,000 contract to Wickberg Marine Contracting Inc. of Belford, N.J., to remove material from an approved dredging disposal site in the marshes near the 34th Street causeway.Many bayside lagoons and channels are extremely shallow or dry during the hours surrounding low tide, and all work to dredge the bay to make it deeper has been at a standstill since 2012. That’s when a dredging contractor had to stop in the middle of a job, because the city’s only approved spoils site was filled to capacity.The new contract calls for Wickberg Marine to haul material away from the site to make room for new dredging projects.“This resolution is going to get us started. We’ve been stuck in the mud a little bit,” Mayor Jay Gillian said, apologizing for the pun.__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter and breaking news alerts__________The mayor said city officials met last Friday with regulators from the state Department of Environmental Protection and federal Army Corps of Engineers officials to continue to discuss more cost-effective and environmentally safe ways to dispose of dredged material.The $2.7 million contract would free up only 40,000 cubic yards and include no actual dredging.By comparison, the 2012 project that was never completed removed 73,000 cubic yards of dredged material under a $1.8 million contract that called for the dredging of 106,000 cubic yards between 15th and 34th streets. The mayor estimated earlier this year that it would take 300,000 cubic yards to dredge Ocean City from “tip to tip.”Gillian said the new work would allow the city to “finish what we started” between 15th and 34th streets, as the city works with regulators to figure out a way to make spoils sites more truck accessible.The contractor will have to move spoils from the site by barge and take it to Wildwood, where it will be used to help cap a landfill. Wildwood will accept the material with the contractor paying $14 a cubic yard.City Council has approved $5 million ($4.75 million of it to be borrowed) in spending for dredging this year. If the contract is approved, that would leave $2.3 million for actual dredging work. TA separate spoils site near the Ninth Street Bridge is approved, but for an amount (4,000 to 6,000 cubic yards) far less than what Ocean City had anticipated.e reconstructed as part of a multiyear project between Fifth and 12th streets, but will need to be strong enough to accommodate trucks and heavy equipment headed for the Music Pier.last_img read more

Gasbuddy: Pump prices slowly trickle downward in Indiana

first_img Gasbuddy: Pump prices slowly trickle downward in Indiana Pinterest Google+ Facebook Previous articleFlorida man arrested in LaGrange County after allegedly biting officerNext articleSouth Bend Mayor James Mueller got married this weekend Network Indiana By Network Indiana – September 28, 2020 0 267 IndianaLocalNews WhatsApp (“Gas Pump” by Mike Mozart, CC BY 2.0) Barring any unforeseen circumstances, gas prices will keep going down. GasBuddy says prices will likely get below $2 per gallon soon.There was a small increase in prices last week. Some stations went from below $2 to $2.15. That won’t be the case this week.“Higher oil prices caused most states to see gas prices inch higher, with the national average rising ever so slightly in the last week, breaking its three week streak of declines,” says Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “We should slip back under $2 later this week, so long as there is no large jump in the price of oil, which sits at about $40 per barrel (as of Monday morning).”The drag on gasoline demand has been fueled by the coronavirus.“That drag will continue until there is some sort of improvement. I really only think, at this point, improvement can be delivered by some sort of vaccine,” says DeHaan. “Even then a vaccine may not be the Holy Grail. Schools are going to be out of session for months, if not the rest of the year already. We may not get back to ‘normal’ for months.”Trilby Lundberg, oil and gas analyst for the Lundberg Survey, agreed with DeHaan.“We still have very abundant gasoline supply. We have demand being hit awfully hard. It’s not only a seasonal decline this time of year. We also have a very weak economy with unemployment claims up,” says Lundberg.DeHaan has said several times that hurricanes can cause an increase in gas prices throughout the country, but right now there does not appear to be a serious hurricane on the horizon.“At least for now, the tropics are quiet. Nothing is on the map. Things have cooled off, but keep in mind that hurricane season goes for another two months. That remains on the radar,” says DeHaan.The temperature also has a lot to do with lower demand as well.“As we get into the cooler and coldest months, we have more potential to go deeper into the $1 per gallon territory. You’ll see more of those sub-$2 prices pop up the cooler the temperatures get,” says DeHaan. “Right now, the longer you wait to fill up, the more likely you are to save a few cents.” Facebook WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter Google+ Twitterlast_img read more

Joshua Park, Broadway’s Tom Sawyer, Dies at 38

first_imgJoshua Park, a stage and screen alum who starred in the title role of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer on Broadway, has died following a brief illness. He was 38 years old.Soon after graduating from North Carolina School of the Arts, Park made his Broadway debut in 2001 in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. It was the first Great White Way show he had ever auditioned for. “This is not what school prepared me for at all,” Park told Broadway.com at the time. “School prepared me for: ‘You’re not gonna work for the next five years, so get ready, kid.’” Though the musical, which also featured Kristen Bell, Jim Poulos and Tom Aldredge, only played the Minskoff Theatre for just over two weeks after opening, Park received a Theatre World Award for his performance.Later that year, Park appeared in the Irish Repertory Theatre’s off-Broadway revival of Streets of New York and A Celtic Christmas in 2002. His additional stage credits included the off-Broadway musical Prodigal opposite Christian Borle and Kerry Butler, ”Master Harold”…and the Boys ad the Westport Country Playhouse and the title role in the Goodspeed Opera House and subsequent national touring production of Pippin.On screen, Park appeared in a series of low-budget horror films: The Bog Creatures, Fort Doom and Blood Relic. He also participated in many developmental readings and festival stagings of new works, including A Merry Jewish Christmas and Like You Like It. View Commentslast_img read more

FAA in final stages of Boeing 737 Max review; could approve as early as Nov. 18

first_img– Advertisement – – Advertisement – The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is in the final stages of reviewing proposed changes to Boeing‘s 737 Max and expects to complete the process in the “coming days,” the agency’s chief told Reuters on Monday.Three sources briefed on the matter told Reuters the FAA is set to approve the plane’s ungrounding as early as Nov 18. FAA Administrator Steve Dickson told Reuters in a statement that he expects “this process will be finished in the coming days, once the agency is satisfied that Boeing has addressed” safety issues involved in two fatal crashes that killed 346 people. – Advertisement – Boeing declined to comment.The ungrounding would be a vital step in a still-arduous path to recovery for Boeing, plunged into its worst-ever crisis by the crashes and the worldwide grounding of its best-selling plane in March 2019.“The FAA continues to engage with aviation authorities around the world as they prepare to validate our certification decision,” Dickson said.- Advertisement –center_img A Boeing 737 MAX jet lands near grounded 737 MAX planes following Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) test flight at Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington on June 29, 2020.Jason Redmond | AFP | Getty Images “As I have said many times before, the agency will take the time that it needs to thoroughly review the remaining work. Even though we are near the finish line, I will lift the grounding order only after our safety experts are satisfied that the aircraft meets certification standards.”Following the FAA green light, airlines must complete software updates and fresh pilot training, a process that will take at least 30 days, before the planes can return to the skies.Southwest Airlines LUV.N, the world’s largest Max operator, has said it would take several months to comply with the FAA requirements and that it does not plan to schedule flights on the aircraft until the second quarter of 2021.The grounding has cost the U.S. planemaker billions, hobbled its supply chain, and triggered investigations that faulted Boeing and the FAA for a lack of transparency and weak oversight during the jet’s development, among other problems.A Justice Department criminal investigation is ongoing.last_img read more

Revealed: The Brisbane suburbs that defied the housing downturn

first_img“I put it down to the liveability of the suburb,” Ms Fraser said. “The community Chelmer embraces is so rare and that’s why so many people flock there — the beautiful homes, the infrastructure we have, the schooling, the railway line, and the easy access to the CBD.”Northgate experienced house price growth of 25 per cent in the year to September, despite general weakness in the overall housing market.Unlike Chelmer, it has a more affordable median house price of $733,500, but bargains are becoming harder to find. This house at 51 Junior Tce, Northgate, has sold for $1.05m.Rebecca and Marko Vuksanovic have just sold their house at 51 Junior Terrace in Northgate for $1.05 million, making a healthy profit on what they bought it for six years ago.“We were quite pleasantly surprised,” Mrs Vuksanovic said.“It was a bit of a record for this little pocket and sold after the first open home.”The couple are relocating overseas, but could not be happier to have invested in the suburb.“It was perfect for us,” Mrs Vuksanovic said. “My husband and I both work locally, it’s got awesome proximity to the city, the airport and freeways north and south. “We just think it’s the perfect suburb.” More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus11 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market11 hours agoThis three-bedroom, one-bathroom house at 145 Gympie St, Northgate, is for sale for offers in the mid $800,000s.Selling agent Dwight Colbert of Ray White – Aspley Group said he had noticed “continuously strong” growth in Northgate in the six years he had been selling homes there.Mr Colbert said he had sold more than 20 homes in the suburb in the past 12 months and part of its appeal to buyers was its proximity to the airport, Northgate train station and the CBD.“I think everyone thinks Northgate is the older suburb, with older homes, but … people udnerestimate the value of the homes in Northgate,” Mr Colbert said. “It is now becoming one of those attraction locations people want to be in.”The Ipswich region also featured prominently on the list of suburbs to record double digit house price growth in the year to September. This three-bedroom house at 18 Gibbon St, East Ipswich, is on the market for only $395,000+.The median house price in Ipswich rose 20 per cent to hit $385,000, while North Ipswich experienced 12 per cent growth and Ripley recorded an 11 per cent increase in its median house price to $415,000. Greater Brisbane’s top 10 suburbs to defy the downturn. Source: Realestate.com.au.On the Gold Coast, premium suburbs with homes with $1 million-plus price tags recorded the highest growth.Suburbs such as Kingscliff, Paradise Point, Clear Island Waters, and Surfers Paradise weathered the downturn — recording double digit price growth. Now that buyers are back and auction clearance rates are improving, some experts are calling the bottom of the market.SQM Research managing director Louis Christopher said he believed Brisbane home prices were “close to fair value” after an extended period where there was a wind-down of housing prices relative to incomes.“The worst overvaluation recorded was early 2008 whereby the market was 45 per cent overvalued,” Mr Christopher said. “This occurred as a result of the Brisbane housing boom of 2003 to 2008 — a period where housing prices doubled in just five years.”Mr Christopher expects the Brisbane market to respond to recent interest rate cuts and relative loose credit for the remainder of the year.“We are forecasting a 0.6 per cent rise in housing prices for the current September quarter and a further 1.5 per cent for the December quarter,” he said. Three Greater Brisbane suburbs made the top 10 list of national suburbs that defied the downturn.

This family home at 65 Victoria St, Chelmer, is for sale.Now that their three children have grown up and left home, the Todds are looking to downsize and plan to spend more time in Europe.“My wife is a photographer and our youngest son is in Europe … so what we need is more of a lock up and go, rather than a family home,” Mr Todd said.Ann-Karyn Fraser of Place Estate Agents, who is marketing the home, said she had noticed the increase in house prices in Chelmer and the continued strong interest in the suburb and the surrounding suburbs of Graceville and Sherwood.

Van Gaal hints Valdes could stay

first_imgManchester United manager Louis van Gaal has refused to rule out the possibility of signing goalkeeper Victor Valdes. “I have always done that, and not only with big players but ones you’ve never heard of.” Valdes’ compatriot David de Gea has enjoyed an outstanding couple of seasons as United’s number one, but currently faces little competition for his first-team spot. Anders Lindegaard looked set to leave Old Trafford in the summer, but he stayed to compete with Sam Johnstone and Ben Amos to be De Gea’s backup. Press Association United announced on Thursday that Valdes, a six-time Primera Division winner, is being allowed to use the club’s training facilities as he bids to return from the anterior cruciate ligament injury that has kept him out since March. The 32-year-old, who is a free agent after leaving Barcelona this summer, will join in with first-team training once he has recovered from the injury. When asked whether he would consider signing the Spaniard if he returns to full fitness, Van Gaal gave a cryptic hint that it might be a possibility. “Manchester United has always their eyes open,” the United manager said at his pre-match press conference on Friday. Van Gaal handed Valdes his Barcelona debut in 2002 during his second spell in charge of the Catalan giants. The Spanish goalkeeper became Van Gaal’s first choice and remained so until the Dutchman decided to leave the Nou Camp in the summer. Valdes had been linked with a move to Liverpool, whose first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has come under fire for some sub-par performances this term. But Van Gaal, whose goalkeeping coach Frans Hoek also worked with Valdes at Barcelona, was happy to give the three-time Champions League winner the opportunity to recover from the injury at United’s state of the art training ground in Carrington. “For me it’s not a surprise (decision) because I have done it already with a lot of players,” he said. “I have a relationship with a lot of players. I gave Ronald de Boer or Edgar Davids rehabilitation possibility or training possibility when they needed that, so he is one of these players. “Robin van Persie also when he played for me in the Dutch squad last year, I allowed him to come to our medical department to get him fit for the World Championship (World Cup). last_img read more
