Financial Push for Water Projects on the Central Coast

Financial Push for Water Projects on the Central Coast

first_imgCongressman Salud Carbajal has announced the passage of new federal funding for water projects on the Central Coast included in the Fiscal Year 2019 Energy and Water Appropriations Act (H.R. 5895).The bill – signed into law by the President on Friday – includes investments in the Cachuma Water Project, and will help fund necessary dredging in the Morro Bay Harbor and the Santa Barbara Harbor.“These resources will provide necessary funding to support the annual dredging that keeps our harbors open for business, fueling job growth on the Central Coast and preserving their economic vitality. I’m grateful these critical resources for Central Coast water projects passed with an overwhelming bipartisan majority,” said Carbajal.Morro Bay HarborH.R. 5895 includes $2.4 million in funding for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to dredge the Morro Bay Harbor entrance next year.“The City of Morro Bay is grateful to receive $2.4 million in Federal funding from the passage of an appropriations bill supported by Congressman Salud Carbajal that will be used for critically important harbor entrance dredging next year,” said Morro Bay Mayor, Jamie L. Irons.“This dredging will help ensure a safe harbor entrance for our recreational boaters and commercial fisher men and women, and allows Morro Bay to be a safe refuge during storms. The Bay is home to our own Harbor Patrol officers and United States Coast Guard, who provide boater assistance, rescue services and Homeland Security along our coast.”Santa Barbara HarborH.R. 5895 also provides $3.36 million in funding for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to support the Santa Barbara Harbor’s annual dredging.“Santa Barbara is fortunate to receive a congressional appropriation of $3.3 million to continue with much needed harbor dredging. The economic vitality of the harbor is dependent on annual dredging and this funding ensures our working harbor will remain productive and an excellent resource for residents and visitors alike,” stated Scott Riedman, Santa Barbara Habor Waterfront Director.Cachuma Water ProjectH.R. 5895 includes $1.57 million for the Bureau of Reclamation to support the Cachuma Water Project in Santa Maria. The Cachuma project captures seasonal floodwater that would otherwise drain into the ocean.“The passage of Reclamation’s budget is great news to continue the extraordinary work that Reclamation accomplishes on behalf of the American People. The Cachuma Project is a significant portion of the water supply for Santa Barbara County including the Santa Barbara municipal area and Reclamation welcomes the funding that allows us to continue operating and maintaining the Project,” stated Duane D. Stroup, Deputy Area Manager.last_img read more

Lawson breaks school scoring record; girls hoops Lakers go 2-1

Lawson breaks school scoring record; girls hoops Lakers go 2-1

first_imgAmid a busy final full week of the regular season, the Cazenovia girls basketball team had a chance to spoil perfection and, along the way, see senior forward Lindsey Lawson make some history.The Lakers faced 19-0, state Class D no. 3-ranked Brookfield last Thursday in an attempt to deny the Beavers the only undefeated regular season of any Section III squad.Yet it was Brookfield demonstrating why that perfect mark was justified, taming Cazenovia 63-34 as it bolted out to a 33-12 halftime lead and never got caught.Jaelyn Vleer-Elliott produced a triple-double for the Beavers, amassing 28 points, 16 rebounds and 10 steals, to go with six assists as Madilyne Kupris added 18 points and 10 rebounds.Back on Monday, the Cazenovia seniors were honored prior to its game against Hannibal, and then the Lakers proceeded to defeat the Warriors 51-34.Lawson, Julia Bauder, Molly Brown, Josie Avery, Molly Schwartz and Megan Hughes received the pre-game accolades, and unlike some Senior Night games, Cazenovia was quite sharp, building a 44-17 lead through three quarters.Though she finished with 24 points, Lawson did not have to do the work alone. Carleigh Szalach had nine points, with Bauder getting six points as Schwartz and Hadley Schug had five points apiece.Against Altmar-Parish-Williamstown a day later, the Lakers won again, this time by a bigger 57-31 margin, where Lawson achieved another milestone.By putting up 21 points, Lawson passed Helen Baroody as Cazenovia’s all-time leading scorer. Baroody put up 1,392 points during her Lakers tenure, with Lawson standing at 1,400 at the end of that game.Just as important for Cazenovia was seeing Szalach break out and match Lawson’s total of 21 points, with Bauder contributing seven points.Chittenango returned to action after a nine-day break and welcomed back Mekenzie Dahlin to the lineup after she had missed most of the season with an injury.And it was Dahlin leading the Bears to a tough 66-59 overtime victory over Skaneateles last Monday night, pouring in 21 points, including three 3-pointers and six free throws.After holding a slim lead for most of regulation, Chittenango was caught, 49-49, but then outscored the Lakers 17-9 in the four-minute OT period, overcoming a career-high 25 points from Emma Keady and 16 points from Tatumn Pas’cal.Aside from Dahlin, Ally Shoemaker finished with 16 points, nine assists and five steals, while Emily Moon got 11 points and eight rebonds. Cassidy Kelly gained 14 rebounds to go with her nine points.Going for its fifth win in a row against Fayetteville-Manlius on Thursday, the Bears nearly got it with a late comeback, but fell just short in a 53-51 defeat to the Hornets.F-M outscored Chittenango 29-19 in the second and third quarters, led by Lexie Roe, who poured in 24 points overall. Down 37-28, the Bears closed strong, but fell a basket short.Kelly was sensational, earning 22 points and 14 rebounds. Moon had 10 points and eight rebounds as she and Kelly nearly made the Hornets pay for all the attention on Shoemaker, who still had nine assists, five steals and four rebounds. Sarah Lanphear earned eight points.On Saturday, Chittenango lost, 54-37, to Homer, to finish its regular season at 12-8. Shoemaker was held to three points as Kelly got 10 points and Lanphear had nine points. Gracie Patriarco paced the Trojans with 21 points.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Cazenoviagirls basketballlast_img read more

‘They’ll NEVER Come Back’

‘They’ll NEVER Come Back’

first_imgHealth and Social Welfare Minister, Dr. Walter T. Gwenigale, has thrashed the main demand of the striking National Health Workers’ Association of Liberia (NHWAL).Dr. Gwenigale, who did not mince his words when he spoke Monday, October 13, during the regular press briefing at the Ministry of Information Culture and Tourism, told the health workers that their demand for the re-instatement of Mr. Joseph Tamba, president and Mr. George Poe Williams, Secretary General and spokesman, would never be honored.“To those of you striking because you want those two men back, you better just stay home forever because they are never coming back to work with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare,” Min. Gwenigale told the striking health workers.Both Tamba and Williams have since been fired from their respective posts at the National Malaria Control Program and the James David Hospital for over a year. However, the striking public health workers still regard both men as their leaders even though they (Tamba and Williams) are no longer officially in the employ of the public health sector. The health workers, especially the ones at the largest Ebola treatment unit (ETU) at the Island Clinic of 150-bed capacity at the moment, are also demanding that monies deducted from their September hazard pay be refunded to them.The Health Minister assured them that every health worker affected by the cut would be reimbursed. He appealed to them to return to work in order to save lives that they swore to protect. Dr. Gwenigale’s statement was buttressed by the Acting Finance and Development Planning Minister, Dr. James Kollie.Reacting to Dr. Gwenigale’s statement that they would ‘never return’ to the Ministry of Health, NHWAL Secretary General Williams told our Health Correspondent via phone that “never” belongs to God and that a “mortal man should not use it because things can change around.”He said with that pronouncement from Min. Gwenigale, he was left to wonder what could be the way forward.Asked whether the strike was ongoing he said “yes, but there have been numerous calls coming from international partners asking us to relax our action. So, we have informed our colleagues at various ETUs to remain and help save the lives of those who came in before the strike began.”He stressed that his colleagues at the ETUs have been warned not to take in new victims even if there are empty beds.At the moment, the immediate impact of the workers’ action might not be felt, but in the coming days if new victims are not allowed to be admitted to the ETUs, Liberia could return to the situation a few weeks ago when dead bodies were found everywhere in homes and communities. This will increase the risk of more infections of the disease, which has so far killed at least 2400 in confirmed, probable and suspected cases in Liberia between March 22 and October 7.Meanwhile, Mr. Williams disclosed to the Observer that he fears for his life. “Someone told me that there is a secret arrest order for me and Tamba. I am not on the run, if the security wants me, I can turn myself in but hunting me secretly is worrisome for me and my family looking at our country’s history,” he stated, emphasizing,  however, that he was not afraid of being arrested.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
