ALMOST DONE—An overhead view of the $2 million renovation that is taking place at George K. Cupples Stadium, home of City League football and soccer July 27. The project is expected to conclude before the start of the 2010 football season on Sept. 3. by Malik Vincent “It’s outstanding for the players,” said Pittsburgh Perry’s coach Bill Gallagher. “It will eliminate all of that astro-turf burn and other problems that were associated with that old surface we had before.”The cost of the new state-of-the-art playing surface totals to be around $400,000. It is comparable to what is used in both the professional and collegiate ranks.“This is the same surface that is going to be played on by the New Orleans Saints (and) the Indianapolis Colts,” said project manager Monty Tuckwiller of Turner Construction. “This same company will be working on the new indoor practice facility for the Minnesota Vikings. West Virginia University uses the same turf for its football stadium, as well.”The City League plays roughly four games each weekend that are split up among its 10 schools. In the past, durability has been a concern for the turf that lies on the field, as well as the safety and prevention of serious injury for the players. It is thought that with the brand new surface, these matters can be laid to rest.“I think it plays a lot safer and a lot faster,” said Tuckwiller. “The 10 high schools that call this place home are going to be very pleased with the results.’“We’ve had an opportunity to play on it before,” said Gallagher. “It’s definitely feels better, that’s for sure. I believe we’ve had that same surface down there for the past 12 years. It was also really neat to be able to get rid of that hump that lays at mid-field (due to the installation of the new drainage).”The project is set to conclude sometime before the City League kicks off its 2010 season Sept. 3 when Brashear takes on Knoch High School at 7:30 p.m.“I’m excited about the fact that this can become a state-of–the-art facility,” said Gallagher. “They got the new lights. That’s definitely a bonus. All of the changes that they are making should increase the notoriety of the place and maximize its use.”(See [email protected]) The Pittsburgh Board of Education and the Department of Athletics’ George K. Cupples Stadium are in the midst of a $2 million project that will give the home of City League football and soccer a new look.Among the changes are a replaced playing surface, new lights, as well as updated drainage and sub-drainage systems.
“It’s bad out there, it’s real bad. It’s always been bad there,” said Flaherty. By Allison Perrine Also among discussions at the Aug. 27 meeting was the new reverse angle parking law, an idea originally brought for ward by the mayor to keep pedestrians safe. After hearing complaints about the law from residents, the borough will review the situation at the end of the summer season. Work will start sometime this fall and will have an estimated useful life of 10 years. At a recent meeting, Jack Flaherty of Monmouth Place questioned why the project would start at the north end of the pavilion because, according to Flaherty, sand typically travels south to north. Mayor Sue Howard said the starting point, known as the “hot spot” in the borough with the largest loss of sand, was determined by the Army Corps of Engineers. MONMOUTH BEACH – The Army Corps of Engineers will begin replenishing sand in Monmouth Beach this fall, starting at the north end of the Bathing Pavilion and continuing north for as far as funding will allow. At the Aug. 27 meeting Commissioner David Stickle said he is dissatisfied with the engineering work done by T&M Associates for the recently striped fire lane at the pavilion. According to Stickle, state law calls for 20-foot clearance and the work completed allows for about 19 feet 4 inches of clearance. Timing is perfect as beach replenishment is currently being funded at the federal level, Howard said, when in the past the borough had to petition for support from the state government and legislature for more sand. The original 50-year contract between the borough and the federal government allowed for the possibility of beach replenishment every six years. The borough’s recent law on reverse angle parking will be reevaluated after the summer season.Photo by Allison Perrine In June, resident William McGowan said he had a hard time maneuvering his way into the angled spot in the crowded parking lot. “The biggest problem is the line of traffic I was stuck in when I first pulled in. It’s like an automatic traffic jam. And that’s on a Wednesday,” he said at a June meeting. The borough will pay just over $1 million toward the project – 15 percent of the total cost – which includes the installation of sand and sediment as well as associated dredging, pumping and sculpting, the approved bond ordinance states. “We at one point waitedfrom 2004 to November of2011 to replenish.” Howardsaid. “This is a good thing forMonmouth Beach.” “You have to accommodate in some way the fact that people have big SUVs now,” said Stickle. “You need to account for that so there’s still 20 foot clear as a fire lane.” He suggested at the meeting that the borough not pay the bill until the work is corrected. If any restriping is done it will likely not be done until next spring.
L-R Donegal representatives, Cllr Jack Murray, Pearse Doherty TD, Simon Gillespie, and Padraig Mac Lochlainn TD after the launch of Sinn Féin’s Job Creation Proposals for Young PeopleYOUTH unemployment in Co Donegal now stands at 49%, Sinn Fein said today.In run up to the National Budget the party has launched proposals to tackle the youth unemployment crisis.The launch which took place in Leinster House was headed up by Donegal County Councillor Jack Murray along with a number of young Sinn Féin representatives from across Ireland. Cllr Murray Ireland joined Ireland’s youngest Oireachtas member, Kathryn Reilly, and Mayor of Dundalk, Jennifer Green, in order to give a briefing on the document to the youth sector and representatives of national youth organistions.Speaking after the launch Cllr Murray said:“A shocking 49% of people aged 18-25 in Donegal are unemployed, thousands more have emigrated.“This is a crisis. Sinn Féin is bringing forward our view of what needs to be done to tackle youth unemployment in Ireland today. Facilitating emigration is not an acceptable response. Young Irish people deserve a chance and deserve an active government that actually does something about youth unemployment and doesn’t just talk about it.“We are proposing specific pro-youth jobs policies like extending all CE schemes to everybody under 25 and moving to a situation where all young people unemployed for three months are assessed and given the training or employment opportunities they require. This stands in direct opposition to the government’s hands-off approach to youth unemployment. “We would also rework or scrap anti-youth jobs policies like raising the retirement age and JobBridge. Additionally we will explain how a stimulus package and budget as outlined by Sinn Féin would benefit young people and young unemployed people in particular by kick-starting economic growth and shifting the tax burden onto those workers most able to pay.” DONEGAL YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT AT 49%, SAYS SINN FEIN was last modified: November 28th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT AT 49%SAYS SINN FEIN
