New Plans for McConnell Tract

Posted on by

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – New development plans have emerged for the McConnell Tract, a 7-acre parcel along the Sandy Hook Bay that is eyed for a batch of single-family luxury housing units by Denholtz Custom Homes.Initial concept plans were unveiled during a Sept. 27 meeting of the Planning Board in which the applicant sought 11 variances for 11 of 21 proposed homes on the site. The applicant also proposed setting aside approximately 1.5 acres for open public green space with a rebuilt bulkhead and 100-foot long boardwalk.Subsequent meetings have been cancelled while the applicant reworks its initial concept and, though no future hearing date has been set, new development plans have emerged with 16 homes, a new orientation of the roadway from a horseshoe shape to cul-de-sac and significantly less open public green space.Benson Chiles of the citizen opposition group, Neighbors for Waterfront Preservation, feels this redesign is grounds for an entirely new application process.“The plans are fundamentally different, and any time an application is fundamentally changed it makes sense to re-notice everyone within 200 feet of the project,” Chiles said.This article was first published in the Nov. 15-21, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Leafs hold off Nitros 3-1 to keep undefeated streak alive

Posted on by

first_imgAt 5’5” and 140-pounds, Travis Wellman doesn’t overpower a lot of players with his size.However, Wellman has a gift many big men would love to have, and that’s scoring goals.The Calgary native scored his league leading 12th and 13th goals of the season to lift the Nelson Leafs past the Kimberley Dynamiters 3-1 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The contest matched two of the KIJHL’s elite teams.And the matchup did not disappoint the home fans, as Leafs needed a shorthanded tally by Wellman late in the third period to secure the victory.“That was a pretty hard-fought battle compare and pretty fast passed compare to some of the teams we’ve played this year,” Wellman said prior to an interview with Nelson play-by-play man Joe Capriglione on Leaf Internet Television.“But we played a good team game between the whistles and were fortunate to come out on top.”The game was the second time in as many nights the Leafs faced a team from the Eddie Mountain Division.Nelson played well against the Columbia Valley Rockies, but ran into Brody Nelson between the pipes for the Eddie Mountain club before settling for a 2-2 tie. Saturday it was another test as the Kimberley entered the contest sporting a 5-0-1 mark.The Nitros jumped all over the Green and White, holding a large territorial advantage with a 13-3 shots advantage, but Tyler Moffat stood tall in the Leaf nets to keep the game scoreless after one.Wellman opened the scoring in the second before Charles Dagostin replied midway through the third.The Leafs appeared to be heading for extra time for the second consecutive night before Wellman deposited a rebound into the top of the net for the game-winner after linemate Jamie Vlanich was foiled by Kimberley netminder Tyson Brouwer.“I think we just played a team game . . . got pucks deep and battled hard throughout,” explained Wellman on the keys to the win.“We stayed out of the shenanigans after the whistle and just really battled.”Vlanich scored an insurance marker with time running out to complete the scoring.Moffat made 26 saves to register the win as Kimberley out shot the Leafs 27-21.Friday, Nelson and Columbia Valley played through 10 minutes of extra time before settling for the 2-2 tie.Darnel St. Pierre and Vlanich scored power play markers for Nelson while Kirk Lissel and Doan Smith replied for the Rockies.Nelson led 2-1 in the final stages of the game before Smith scored with just over two minutes remaining in the period to force overtime.Nelson out shot the Rockies 55-28, but had difficulty beating Rockies goalie Brody Nelson.BLUELINES: The Leafs assume top spot in the Neil Murdoch Division after Osoyoos Coyotes dumped Beaver Valley 4-1 Saturday at the Hawks Nest. Nelson, 6-0-1, leads the Hawks by one point. . . .Nelson gets a steady diet of divisional action this weekend as the Leafs host both Beaver Valley and Castlegar during Family Weekend. Beaver Valley travels to the NDCC Arena Friday while Castlegar visits Sunday. Saturday Nelson meets the Rebels in the Sunflower City. . . . Thanks to a four-point weekend, Leafs Jamie Vlanich sits second in KIJHL scoring behind Jackson Purvis of Grand Forks. Vlanich has six goals and 13 assists for 19 points, one behind Purvis. . . . Travis Wellman, kept of the score sheet for the first time this season Friday against Columbia Valley, is tied for sixth with 15 points, but leads the league in goals with 13.last_img read more

Week Three of Southland Play Tips-Off Wednesday

Posted on by

first_img• Undefeated: New Orleans and Southeastern Louisiana are the only undefeated teams left in Southland play. The Privateers defeated Lamar by 10 on Wednesday to hand the Cardinals their first loss of the season. UNO then won in overtime at McNeese, 82-75, on Saturday to move to 4-0 in the league season. The Lions earned a 72-70 win at Abilene Christian on Saturday in the team’s lone game of the week.• Home/Road Sweeps: Every home team won in last Wednesday’s league contests as Sam Houston State, Stephen F. Austin, New Orleans, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Abilene Christian each claimed a win. It was a completely different outcome in Saturday’s games as the six road teams walked away with a victory: Central Arkansas, Nicholls, Sam Houston State, Stephen F. Austin, New Orleans and Southeastern Louisiana.• Overtime Hours: Two of Saturday’s games needed overtime to determine a winner. League leader New Orleans went to overtime for the first time since the 2017 Southland Conference championship as the Privateers squeezed past McNeese 82-75. Central Arkansas and Lamar went to two overtimes before the Bears knocked off the Cardinals 100-91.• Triple Double: Central Arkansas freshman guard DeAndre Jones record a 13-point, 11-rebound, 11-assist triple double on Saturday to become the first Bear to record a triple double since Scottie Pippen (1987). It was Jones first career start and just the second triple double recorded in the Southland Conference this season; Braxton Bonds of HBU did so on Dec. 15. He is one of 14 players in the nation to tally a triple double this season.• Birthday Boy Nets Big Present: Celebrating his 22nd birthday this past Saturday, Central Arkansas senior guard Jordan Howard became the Southland career leader for three-point field goals made. He accomplished the feat during a double-overtime win at Lamar, passing McNeese’s Demond Mallet (1997-2001). Howard is currently ranked sixth nationally for scoring with 23.9 points per game.• Axe ‘Em: Stephen F. Austin leads the nation in turnovers forced, averaging 22.31 per game. The Lumberjacks also rank second in steals per game (11.8) and total steals (188) while also ranking third in turnover margin (6.3).Schedule:Wednesday, Jan. 10Abilene Christian at Houston Baptist* – 7 p.m.Southeastern Louisiana at Lamar* (ESPN3) – 7 p.m.New Orleans at Stephen F.

Austin (13-3, 2-1 SLC) tonight on ESPN3. The Lumberjacks had the best non-conference record heading into league action at 11-2 before dropping their conference opener at Southeastern Louisiana, 72-63. A Privateers win would make just the fourth time in program history that UNO begins league play 5-0 and the first time since 1992-93. The ‘Jacks are 9-0 at home this season and have the nation’s best home court record since the 2012-13 season, going 80-3 in that span. Nicholls (9-8, 3-1 SLC) begins a three-game home stretch Wednesday, hosting McNeese (5-9, 2-2 SLC). Roddy Peters dropped 24 points for the Colonels in their last outing at Houston Baptist on Saturday, giving the team their best start to Southland play since 2014. In conference games, the Cowboys have three players averaging 15.5 points or more with James Harvey leading the trio with 17.5 points per game. Houston Baptist (4-12, 0-3 SLC) will search for its first Southland win of the season when the Huskies host Abilene Christian (10-7, 2-2 SLC) tonight while UIW (5-8, 0-3 SLC) will try to accomplish the same feat at Central Arkansas (8-9, 2-2 SLC). HBU leads the nation in offensive rebounds per game, averaging 16.69 per game. The Wildcats’ junior forward Jaren Lewis ranks first in the Southland for field goal percentage (62.0 percent), which puts him at 22nd in the country. The Bears head into their game with UIW following a double-overtime victory at Lamar. Sam Houston State (8-8, 2-1 SLC) contests Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (4-9, 1-2 SLC) on the road. The Bearkats, who are second in the league in scoring offense for conference games, have reached the 70-point mark in each of their three league games. The Islanders’ Joseph Kilgore looks to bring his squad back to .500 in league play; the senior guard leads the team in scoring (17.1 points per game), rebounding (4.9), assists (2.2) and steals (1.7). The only other undefeated Southland team in league play is Southeastern Louisiana (9-7, 3-0 SLC). The Lions compete at Lamar (10-7, 2-2 SLC) this evening; the Cardinals are just one just one of three Southland teams with 10 or more wins this season.

SANTA ANITA PARK ANNOUNCES 2020 GEORGE WOOLF MEMORIAL JOCKEY AWARD FINALISTS, WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED IN FEBRUARY

Posted on by

first_imgSANTA ANITA PARK ANNOUNCES 2020 GEORGE WOOLF MEMORIAL JOCKEY AWARD FINALISTS, WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED IN FEBRUARY BAZE, CASTELLANO, EMIGH, GRAHAM & QUINONES TO FACE NATIONWIDE VOTE OF THEIR PEERS  ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 12, 2019)–Santa Anita Park has announced a distinguished group of five finalists for the 2020 George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award, with the winner to be announced in February. One of the most prestigious honors in all of American racing, the Woolf Award, which is determined by a vote of jockeys nationwide, can only be won once.Jockeys Tyler Baze, Javier Castellano, Chris Emigh, James Graham and Luis M. Quinones, a highly respected group of veteran riders who represent various geographic regions, have been selected as Woolf finalists.Presented annually by Santa Anita since 1950, the Woolf Award recognizes those riders whose careers and personal character garner esteem for the individual and the sport of Thoroughbred racing. The trophy is a replica of the life-sized statue of legendary Hall of Fame jockey George Woolf, which adorns Santa Anita’s Paddock Gardens area.Woolf, who won the inaugural Santa Anita Handicap aboard Azucar on Feb. 23, 1935 and who  gained further international fame when he piloted the immortal Seabiscuit to victory over Triple Crown Champion  War Admiral in a 1 3/16 mile match race at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, MD., on Nov. 1, 1938, was regarded as one of the top big-money riders of his era.  Known affectionately as “The Iceman,” he was revered by his fellow riders, members of the media and fans across America as a fierce competitor and consummate professional.America’s Eclipse Champion Apprentice Jockey in the year 2000, Tyler Baze was born on Oct. 19, 1982 in Seattle, WA. The son of a former jockey, Earl, Baze hails from a legendary racing family that has also produced North America’s all-time leading rider, Russell Baze (2002 Woolf Award winner), who is Tyler’s second cousin and a retired member of racing’s Hall of Fame.  Tyler’s uncle, Gary Baze, was also a top rider, primarily in the Northwest.With a work ethic that is second to none, Baze, who is currently based in Southern California, has consistently endeared himself to horsemen and fans alike as a tireless competitor that comes to work ready to ride. With more than 2,600 career wins to his credit, Baze has overcome personal adversity and become a true credit to his profession.Arguably America’s most successful jockey over the past decade, Javier Castellano is a four-time Eclipse Award winner who was also the nation’s leading rider by money-won in each of his Eclipse Award-winning seasons, 2013, 14, 15 and 2016. Based on the east coast, Castellano was born Oct. 23, 1977 in Maracaibo, Venezuela and began riding full-time in 1996. Currently ranked third in 2019 purse earnings with $24.1 million, Castellano, who was elected to racing’s Hall of Fame in 2017, now has more than 5,200 career wins.  With career purse earnings of $341 million, Castellano is America’s second leading all-time money-winning jockey, behind only fellow Hall of Famer Johnny Velazquez, who has banked $414 million.A 48-year-old native of Portsmouth, Virginia, Chris Emigh (pronounced Eh-mee) has been one of the most productive jockeys in the Chicago area for more than 20 years.  A seven-time leading rider at Hawthorne Race Course, he topped the jockey standings at Arlington Park in 2006.  Emigh broke his maiden at age 18 in 1989 at Evangeline Downs in Louisiana and now has more than 4,000 career victories.  Consistent, hard working and readily accessible to media, Emigh is one of the Windy City’s  most highly respected riders.A 40-year-old native of Dublin, Ireland, James Graham has an enthusiasm for racing that has helped propel him to major successes while riding primarily in Chicago, Kentucky and Louisiana. A two-time leading rider (2011 & 14) at Arlington Park, Graham was consistently among the leaders at the Chicago area track dating back to 2004. The meet’s leading rider this past summer at Ellis Park, Graham has currently committed to a year-round schedule centered on Fair Grounds in New Orleans, Keeneland, Churchill Downs and Ellis. With more than 2,500 career wins to his credit, Graham’s mounts have earned nearly $85 million.A major force at Mahoning Valley Race Course in Youngstown Ohio and at Thistledown near Cleveland, Luis M. Quinones is currently in a pitched battle with Irad Ortiz, Jr. for national leading rider honors in terms of races won. With more than 300 victories to his credit, Quinones will no doubt try to stay as busy as he possibly can through the end of the month. Born March 26, 1979 in Puerto Rico, Quinones is currently atop the standings at Mountaineer Park in New Cumberland, West Virginia, and was leading rider at this year’s Mahoning Valley Winter/Spring Meet.The 2019 Woolf Award was won by veteran jockey Scott Stevens and the 2020 winner will be announced in February.last_img read more
