Kenai Businesses Making Pitch for Airport Lands

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Kenai business owners are again making a play for airport lands, asking to convert their long-term leases to purchase agreement. City Manager Rick Koch said over 50 years, the City would lose millions of dollars worth of funds which are crucial to keep the airport in the black. Bannock: “The City Administration is recommending a no sale of a piece of property that the firm that I work for is leasing and wants to buy. The philosophy checks needs to be, ‘how does the City of Kenai address long-term lease holders that want to buy their property?’ Particularly property that is within the airport land system.” Bannock said that if business owners could buy their land they would be more likely to invest and expand their businesses, creating more jobs and economic opportunities. Duane Bannock represents Schilling Rentals, which operates a medical office on airport-owned land just across from the Kenai Courthouse… Koch: “Over the last ten years we went from losing significant amounts of money very year to this year the airport’s projected a $400,000 surplus in its operations and we have revamped the leasing program.” A number of business owners have expressed interest in various airport lands. They’re now preparing their presentations for a future Kenai City Council work session.last_img read more

The Tigers (2-1, 0-1 in Southeastern Conference) currently surrender 270 rushing yards per game, which is tied for 124th of 128 schools in Football Bowl Subdivision play. In the two games against FBS competition, Auburn has given up an average of 324.5 rushing yards per game and that places them second worst in the nation. Over 43 yards of difference separates Auburn from the next highest Power 5 conference school, Kansas, in that statistical category at 281 rushing yards a game.“As a defense, that’s always your number one priority – stop the run and force the pass,’ Auburn defensive back Jonathan Jones said Saturday. “We have got to tackle better and stop the run.”Auburn’s run defense problems aren’t likely to just look better by the style of the following week’s opponent either. Mississippi State (2-1, 0-1 in SEC) comes to Jordan-Hare Stadium for a 6:30 p.m. game with the conference’s most prolific dual-threat quarterback of any active college football player. Dak Prescott is currently fourth in the SEC in total offense at 302 yards per game and led all SEC quarterbacks last year with 986 rushing yards.Auburn Tigers defensive coordinator Will Muschamp coaches during the NCAA football game between LSU Tigers and Auburn on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015, at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La. LSU Tigers defeated Auburn Tigers 45-21. Albert Cesare / AdvertiserAuburn Tigers defensive coordinator Will Muschamp coaches during the NCAA football game between LSU Tigers and Auburn on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015, at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La. LSU Tigers defeated Auburn Tigers 45-21. Albert Cesare / AdvertiserOn New Year’s Day, Muschamp stood on the sidelines in Tampa during the 2015 Outback Bowl in what Auburn officials were saying was a consultant role and watched the Tigers give up 400 yards rushing in a loss to Wisconsin. With his own eyes, Muschamp saw live the project he’d inherited and promised it would get better after he signed a three-year guaranteed contract to be the Tigers defensive coordinator that would pay him $1.6 million annually.Three weeks into the 2015 regular season, it has arguably gotten worse. Muschamp watched an Auburn defense, give up 411 yards on the ground Saturday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.“You continue to do the same things you’re going to get the same results,” Muschamp said last Sunday. “That’s my message for our defense. We’ve got to change, we’ve got to continue to evolve to be a more disciplined group.”Muschamp was not made available to the media after the loss at LSU Saturday and he’s next scheduled to speak publicly Wednesday evening.Auburn is near the bottom five of all Power 5 conference schools in four major statistical categories (scoring defense, total defense, rushing defense and third down defense) and rank near the bottom of the SEC in nearly every defense stat.In every preseason interview session when asked about his new coordinator hire, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said he had no doubt Muschamp was “the best in the business at what he does” and the Tigers would be better on that side of the ball. Less than one month into the regular season, the Auburn standard Malzahn speaks of so often, has now switched on Muschamp from thoughts of championships  to showing any form of progress with a unit lacking confidence.“We are getting the ball kind of run down our throat and so we’ve really got to start filling gaps, get to the ball and run downhill,” Auburn linebacker Kris Frost said.last_img read more

Gould’s Crucible hopes end at first hurdle

first_imgMartin Gould’s bid to reach the World Championship ended in Wednesday’s first qualifying round with a shock defeat to amateur Adam Duffy.The Pinner potter, who has reached the televised stages at the Crucible every year since 2008, failed to recover from losing six of the first nine frames and eventually succumbed 10-6.Duffy, who has taken both Neil Robertson and Judd Trump to final-frame deciders in his last two tournaments, raced into a 3-0 lead, before Gould got on the board thanks to a break of 80.But Duffy hit a superb 120 to go 4-2 in front and extended his lead in the next frame with a 75, as he led 6-3 at the end of the morning session.Gould did make a break of 83 to reduce the deficit to 7-5 but Duffy remained in control with solid scoring, including a 70 in the final frame.It marks a disappointing end to Gould’s season, the highlights of which were making the final of the Bulgarian Open in October and the last four of the Wuxi Classic last June.

Ronaldo Bids Farewell To Real Madrid Ahead Of Juventus Move

first_imgRelated Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has penned an emotional letter as he bids farewell to Real Madrid ahead of his club record move to Juventus.His farewell letter was revealed via the club’s website after Real Madrid confirmed that they have granted his wish to join Juventus.Widespread reports stated that both clubs agreed a fee of €105m for the 33-year-old and he will sign a four-year contract worth a whooping €30m per annum.His letter read as follows: “These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life.I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.However, I believe that the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me.They have been absolutely wonderful for 9 years. They have been 9 unique years. It has been an exciting time for me, full of consideration but also hard because Real Madrid is of a very high demand, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way.I have had fabulous teammates in the field and in the dressing room, I have felt the warmth of an incredible crowd and together we have won 3 Champions in a row and 4 Champions in 5 years. And with them also, on an individual level, I have the satisfaction of having won 4 Gold Balls and 3 Gold Boots. All during my time in this immense and extraordinary club.Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thanks to the club, the President, the directors, my colleagues, all the technicians, doctors, physios and incredible workers that make everything work and that are pending every detail tirelessly.Thank you infinitely once more to our fans and thanks also to Spanish Football. During these 9 exciting years I have had great players in front of me. My respect and my recognition for all of them.I have reflected a lot and I know that the time has come for a new cycle. I’m leaving but this shirt, this shield and the Santiago Bernabéu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am.Thanks to all and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium 9 years ago: Hala Madrid!last_img read more

Jalen Hurts calls OU’s own glowing Instagram post ‘rat poison’

Hurts, featured prominently in the photos on the post, slid into the comments with two words: “Rat Poison”.Jalen Hurts is not here for it … not even from his own team’s account. #Sooners pic.twitter.com/HGYUGwPdOv— Nate Feken (@TheGreat_Nate) September 20, 2019The backstory: When Hurts, who transferred to Oklahoma this offseason, was the starting quarterback at Alabama in 2017, coach Nick Saban, in October of that year, grew weary of the unrelenting positive coverage thrown at his unbeaten and top-ranked team. Related News Alabama coach Nick Saban says star recruit Antonio Alfano ‘basically quit’ The Tide coach derisively called all the positive headlines and stories about his team “rat poison.”Alabama went on to win the national championship that season, though Tua Tagovailoa was the spark in the national championship game, a foreshadowing of Hurts’ exit. Clearly, though Hurts is gone from Tuscaloosa, some of his lessons learned there traveled with him to Norman.Listen to how Saban says “rat poison” and it’s understandable:last_img read more
