Governor Wolf: Restore Pennsylvania Can Address Vital Infrastructure Needs in Carnegie Borough

first_img Infrastructure,  Press Release,  Restore Pennsylvania Carnegie, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf toured the Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall to see the unfinished Library Park project, its completion stymied by mudslide damage. Following the tour, he outlined the components of the most aggressive infrastructure plan in generations, Restore Pennsylvania.“Heavy rains throughout 2018 demonstrated vividly and tragically that our flood mitigation planning and infrastructure have not kept up, leaving communities and individuals throughout the state with massive cleanup costs, and few options to turn to for assistance,” Gov. Wolf said.“The library and music hall should not have had to use money slated for a green space to repair mudslide damage. But they did what they had to do to make the area safe and secure for residents and visitors.”The governor’s plan will help communities like Carnegie mitigate the effects of flooding and extreme weather, address blight, and expand broadband access and green infrastructure, restoring communities that simply do not have the funding for these projects.To achieve these goals, Governor Wolf announced an ambitious infrastructure initiative, Restore Pennsylvania, funded by the monetization of a commonsense severance tax. Restore Pennsylvania will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant high-impact projects throughout the commonwealth to help catapult Pennsylvania ahead of every state in the country in terms of technology, development, and infrastructure.Encompassing new and expanded programs to address five priority infrastructure areas including high speed internet access, storm preparedness and disaster recovery, downstream manufacturing, business development, and energy infrastructure, demolition, revitalization, and renewal, and transportation capital projects, Restore Pennsylvania projects will be driven by local input about community needs. Projects identified by local stakeholders will be evaluated through a competitive process to ensure that high priority, high impact projects are funded and needs across Pennsylvania are met.The governor was joined on the tour and press conference by Senator Wayne Fontana and Representative Anita Kulik.“This region is no stranger to natural disasters and infrastructure problems,” Sen. Fontana said. “And as the impact of climate change unleashes more weather emergencies more often, we need to do all we can to prevent or minimize flooding, landslides, lead poisoning and so many other tragedies. We cannot continue putting band-aids on gaping wounds and continue kicking the can down the road when it comes to our aging infrastructure.”“All the municipalities that make up the 45th District have in some way or another been affected by the heavy rains and flooding that continue to hit our Commonwealth,” Rep. Kulik said. “Homes, businesses, municipal properties have all been destroyed at great cost to our constituents. We are very happy to welcome the Governor to Carnegie to hear about the his Restore PA plan — it it helps open the conversation about how to help our citizens.”Flooding Prevention and RecoveryRestore Pennsylvania will provide funding for flood prevention that will protect against severe weather and save homes and businesses in flood prone areas across the state. Restore Pennsylvania will provide funding to help towns and cities prepare for flooding and severe weather, upgrade flood walls and levees, replace high-hazard dams, and conduct stream restoration and maintenance. Restore Pennsylvania will also establish a disaster relief trust fund to assist individuals who suffer losses that are not compensated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency or other programs.BlightRestore Pennsylvania will increase resources for addressing blight by providing financial resources at the local level to establish land banks and acquire and demolish blighted buildings in order to create new development opportunities or provide new green space. The funding will be administered by entities established by the legislature as land banks or demolition funds.BroadbandRestore Pennsylvania will provide funding to completely bridge the digital divide in every community in Pennsylvania, making Pennsylvania a better place to work, do business, and live. Grants will be available to support installation of infrastructure to bring high speed internet to every corner of the commonwealth. Funding will support every phase of the process from feasibility testing to connection.View the full Restore Pennsylvania plan here.

Scott Shafer explains reasoning for 3 scholarship kickers on roster

Scott Shafer explains reasoning for 3 scholarship kickers on roster

first_img Published on July 21, 2015 at 12:14 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories No. 14: The kicker spot could still be up in the aircenter_img PINEHURST, N.C. — Syracuse enters the 2015 season with three scholarship kickers on his roster — sophomore Cole Murphy, senior Ryan Norton and freshman Sterling Hofrichter.Though the scholarship placement may seem redundant, Scott Shafer explained his reasoning on Tuesday at Atlantic Coast Conference Media Day.“I think people forget that Sterling Hofrichter is a very, very good punter. And I think a lot’s been said about his placekicking ability obviously,” Shafer said. “But Riley Dixon is done after this year. So I think if you look at it that way, you say you have to have one ready to go when Riley’s out. And we happen to have a guy that does both extremely well in Sterling Hofrichter. I think you can figure out that we have to make sure we take care of business, and I didn’t want to wait a year when we had one that was really excited about his opportunity.”Shafer said the kicking unit will have “good competition” among the three, though the depth chart lists Murphy as the starter with Norton backing up and Hofrichter as a third string ahead of senior walk-on Alex Hodgkinson.“Depending on how the guy opposite of him is doing in the kicking, Sterling can focus in on being better at one or the other,” Shafer said. “We got some time to get him right, but we’re excited to get him in the program.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Commentslast_img read more

Melvin Gordon seeking new deal from Chargers

Melvin Gordon seeking new deal from Chargers

first_imgMelvin Gordon was at mandatory minicamp Tuesday after sitting out voluntary workouts earlier this offseason, but he still wants a new contract.The Chargers running back confirmed that while the two sides have begun discussions regarding a new deal, he isn’t sure how things will play out.  All-Pro defensive tackle Chris Jones absent from Chiefs minicamp Jadeveon Clowney still not close on a deal with Texans When asked if he would consider sitting out if he doesn’t sign before the start of the regular season in September, Gordon couldn’t give a definitive answer but hinted that he hopes it doesn’t come to that.“I don’t know, man” Gordon said. “I’m just trying not to talk about it. Like I said, if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen. When it does, I’m pretty sure you guys will know.”Gordon is scheduled to earn $5.6 million in 2019. While other rushers around the league like Todd Gurley, Le’Veon Bell and David Johnson have received their respective deals, Gordon acknowledged that each came at a price, whether it came down to an injury or sitting out.“It’s an issue with everybody else,” Gordon said about the running back market. “But I know my value. I know what I bring to this team, and I’m sticking with that. Todd’s paid, so Todd don’t care what anybody says right now, him or David Johnson. They can say what they want to say. They signed on the dotted line. Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey says he isn’t getting contract extension this year “I would be lying if I said I didn’t want a deal, but that’s not going to stop me from coming out here,” Gordon said, per the Los Angeles Daily News. “But we’re going to see … We’re talking right now and that’s kind of where I’m going to leave it.“I would love to have it done, so I don’t have to worry about that. I can just come into work and do what I need to do. I just don’t want any problems or anything like that. I don’t want to miss football. I don’t have time for none of that going back and forth. I rather just get it done and get it out the way. Like I said, we will revisit that.” Related News “But unfortunately I haven’t yet, so I’ve got to take the heat for some of the stuff that they’re going through. But I’m not them, and I like I said, I know my value.”Gordon, 26, had 1,375 yards and a career-high 14 touchdowns last season despite missing four games.The two-time Pro Bowl selection has had three consecutive seasons of at least 1,200 scrimmage yards and 10 total touchdownslast_img read more
