Reducing Plastic and Tethering Balloons in Atlantic Highlands

first_img“The harbor is economically valuable to our municipality. It’s been certified by the NJDEP as a Clean Marina, and we need to ensure that it remains that way. Reducing plastic waste is one of the things we can do,” Hubeny said. Two educational workshops about thisproposed single-use plastic regulationwere held for the chamber of commerceand residents. Crowley hopes to advance a growing trend in the Two River area first launched by Monmouth Beach in May 2018, when that town passed a law prohibiting the use of single-use plastics and Styrofoam take-out containers. Violators are subject to a $2,500 fine. In December, the borough attempted to pass a single-use plastics ordinance. It included a 10-cent fee for store customers and restaurant patrons who requested a plastic carry-out bag, but merchants pushed back. “People will argue with me that it’s a slippery slope. First it’s straws, utensils and bags. What’s next? Lids, Styrofoam and DVD packaging? Absolutely! That’s absolutely the goal,” Crowley said. Discussions concerning a possible regulation of single-use plastics and straws to protect wildlife and reduce cleanup costs began in January 2018. Four months later, Crowley was at the forefront of “The Final Straw,” an event supported by the governing body that challenged local restaurants from April 23- 27 to refrain from handing out straws when serving drinks. If patrons requested a straw, they received a biodegradable paper one instead of plastic. “They were afraid the fee would cause customers to go elsewhere, when really itwas included to incentivize people to optfor reusable bags,” Crowley said. “It was amajor point of contention, so we removed itfrom this proposal.” Though single-use plastics have received most of the headlines, American Littoral Society executive director Tim Dillingham said the importance of the helium balloon ordinance should not be lost. Le Grice said she hopes the legislationwill pass and pressure state legislatorsto take the reins and offer municipalitiesmore guidance, rather than forcing themto find their own way. The council will vote on adoption ofthese ordinances at its July 10 meeting. “There have also been reports of whalesingesting them,” he said. “Balloons are asignificant threat to marine wildlife and it’sour belief that there has to be a better wayto celebrate a major life achievement thanby releasing garbage into the air.” “We need to continue to educate thepublic, because not everyone understandsthe impact,” Crowley said. “They see us asa small town with 4,300 residents. Whatgood can this possibly do? But if we do it,what other neighboring towns will follow?We need to set the example.” The following month, Little Silver adopted a plastics ban of its own; first-time violators face a fine of up to $500. By the third offense the fine increases to $2,500 per day of noncompliance. At the time of adoption, the ordinance included a provision that offered business owners a six-month window to achieve compliance and an additional six months if the transition proves to be too difficult. ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS– For councilman JonCrowley, the buildup ofdebris on First Avenueand the plastic bags strewnthroughout the branchesof borough trees are a badjoke even he couldn’t havewritten.center_img The proposed legislation was adjustedand introduced at a council meeting lastmonth. Dillingham noted that a deflated balloonsitting on a body of water can resemble ajellyfish, which is a primary source of foodfor sea turtles. Crowley said if the ban on single-use plastics in Atlantic Highlands passes, business owners will have until Nov. 1 to comply. Those in violation will be subject to the borough’s standard code enforcement fines and penalties. Atlantic Highlands borough administrator Adam Hubeny said there are also economic considerations to these ordinances with respect to the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor. Monmouth Beach followed in March 2019 with legislation that abolished the release of helium-filled balloons. Exceptions to the ordinance included those balloons released for government-authorized scientific or meteorological proposes, hot air balloons recovered after launching and balloons that remain indoors. “We’ve been advocating for municipal bans on balloon releases up and down the coastline. It’s a primary focus of our educational campaigns and we’re empowering towns to speak about them,” Dillingham said. “The state has had a plastics ban bill sitting in committee for a year now. What will it entail to get it out? It’s time to move on it. They have the power and we need a guide. What they pass may be more restrictive, or it may be less restrictive, but this really needs to come from Trenton. We can only do so much,” Le Grice said. According to Hubeny, the harbor is one of just nine in New Jersey to be owned and operated by a municipality and maintaining its health offers a big lift to borough taxpayers. The successful film and television producer, known for his work on the hidden camera reality show series “Impractical Jokers,” is leading the charge in town to ban single-use plastics and the releasing of balloons. Crowley is hopeful local legislation coming before the council in July will clean things up. “The harbor’s utility budget this year is $6.5 million. Out of that total, over a million dollars comes back to the municipality each year. That’s big for us,” Hubeny said, adding that the harbor operates at about 96 percent capacity with a waiting list for boat storage slips. Only selective slips for certain sized boats are currently available. “We all need to understand that though this is a global problem, we need to do our part at home to reduce the source of the biggest contributor to litter in our beach-front areas, harbor and roadways,” said Atlantic Highlands Mayor Rhonda C. LeGrice.last_img read more

THREE TIME ECLIPSE CHAMPION BEHOLDER HEADS SOLID FIELD IN SATURDAY’S GRADE I, $400,000 VANITY MILE; ECLIPSE WINNING STELLAR WIND TO MAKE 4-YEAR-OLD DEBUT & RED-HOT TARIS STRETCHES OUT OFF GRADE I WIN

THE GRADE I VANITY MILE IN POST POSITION ORDER WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTSRace 7 (of 11)                                                                                     STELLAR WIND: Owned by Hronis Racing, LLC, last year’s 3-year-old Filly Champ has been idle since running a close second in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Keeneland on Oct. 30. Originally based at Laurel Park in Maryland for her first two starts, this Virginia-bred daughter of Curlin has blossomed in trainer John Sadler’s care, winning four out of her six starts with him. With Beholder and Taris likely providing some early fireworks, Stellar Wind will likely take back off the early pace with regular rider Victor Espinoza calling the shots from the rail post position. Like Beholder, Stellar Wind is undefeated in two starts at a flat mile. Her overall mark stands at 8-5-1-1, with earnings of $913,200. TARIS: One of two Simon Callaghan trainees, this 5-year-old Kentucky-bred mare by Flatter comes off a sensational 5 ¾ length win in the Grade I, seven furlong Humana Distaff at Churchill Downs May 7 and will be in search of her fourth graded win in her last five starts when she stretches out a furlong here on Saturday. In her only try at one mile, she was an impressive one-turn winner of the Grade III Go For Wand Handicap at Aqueduct four starts back on Nov. 27. A three-time graded stakes winner sprinting, Taris, who drew post four, will likely sit outside of Beholder into the first turn, thus assuring a lively Vanity pace scenario. With an overall record of 13-8-2-2, Taris has earnings of $1,086,260.center_img FIRST 2,000 ON-TRACK FANS TO RECEIVE BEHOLDER POSTER ARCADIA, Calif.

Saturday marks the third time the iconic fixture for fillies and mares will be run at Santa Anita.BEHOLDER – Peppermint Power // $400,000 VANITY MILE – June 4th, 2016 from Santa Anita Park on Vimeo.                BEHOLDER: Idle since late September, Richard Mandella’s stable superstar galloped in the Grade III, 1 1/16 miles Adoration Stakes here on May 8, winning by 2 ½ lengths under regular rider Gary Stevens, who has guided her to 10 victories from 11 tries. A winner of last year’s Adoration as well, Beholder, a 6-year-old Henny Hughes mare who possesses tremendous natural speed, is perhaps best served by a brief listing of her career achievements:–Eclipse Award Winning 2-year-old filly of 2012                –Eclipse Award Winning 3-year-old filly of 2013                –Eclipse Award Winning Older Filly or Mare, 2015                –With 13 overall stakes wins, she has 11 graded victories, nine of them Grade I’s                –She is an amazing 12 for 13 at Santa Anita                –Beholder is undefeated in two tries at a flat mile.With an overall mark of 21-16-3-0 and career earnings of $4,496,600, Beholder’s primary objectives this year are a defense of her victory in last year’s Grade I, 1 ¼ miles Pacific Classic versus males at Del Mar and a first-ever start in the Grade I, $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5. Additionally, owner Hughes stated following her win in the Adoration that if all goes well, Beholder will run again in 2017 at age seven.“It’s very nice knowing she can train up to the Breeders’ Cup here at home,” said Hughes, following Beholder’s Adoration win. “If she has a good year this year, I’ll do it again at age seven. Why not?! She’s having a good time, she’s really happy…Richard (Mandella) had the The Tin Man running here at age eight. He’s the kind of trainer, a rare trainer that can do that…”last_img read more

Kvitova traces and leaves Carla Suárez out of Doha

first_img5 years after dropping in these identical tracks in opposition to the Carla Suarez, the czech Petra Kvitova, Favourite eighth, was compensated with a victory over the Spanish, 4-6, 6-3 and 6-0, and certified for the spherical of 16 of the Qatar Open in Doha.After imposing on the Chinese language Shuai Zheng in his debut, Suárez, champion of the match in 2016, couldn’t with the eleventh of the world this week, which after giving up the primary set, was extra blunt within the punch and he developed Carla along with his punches in an hour and 44 minutes. The Spanish had completed with the primary set in 40 minutes, after at all times going forward on the scoreboard, and though it price him to shut this sleeve, by which he wanted 4 factors to take action, he took the lead. The double Wimbledon champion and winner in Doha 2018, had been very erratic in that quarter, with too many right-wing failures, which Carla took the chance to grasp this act, with out giving up his serve as soon as. However all of the sobriety of the Spanish sport vanished from right here. Kvitova was proper along with his lengthy and devastating pictures, and Suarez couldn’t hold the ball in play as at first. A 3-Zero lead helped Petra take over and match the match.Within the third set Carla’s service didn’t work and may solely win one level with every of them. The Spanish was on the mercy of the Czech, who ended up successful at pleasure, and taking revenge on that 6-Zero that Suárez endorsed in his victory within the quarters of 2015 (3-6, 6-0 and 6-3). Kvitova will face in eighths in opposition to Latvian Jelena Ostapenko, Roland Garros champion in 2017, who received the Czech Barbora Strycova, 6-1 and 6-2. Considerably later Garbiñe Muguruza, eleventh favourite, is measured in opposition to Australian Ajla Tomljanovic for a spot within the eighths.last_img read more

Sanchez ‘not for sale’, says Wenger

first_img0Shares0000Alexis Sanchez (left) will not be sold this summer, says Arsene Wenger.PHOTO/Sky SportsLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 18 – Alexis Sanchez can lead Arsenal back into the Champions League and will not be sold by the club, says Arsene Wenger.Sanchez told Chilean media he wants to play in Europe’s top competition, which the Gunners failed to qualify for after their fifth-placed Premier League finish, and that a decision over his future rests with Arsenal. Wenger remains adamant Sanchez will not be leaving the Emirates this summer, though, revealing the club’s stance is already clear.“The decision has been made and we will stick to that,” Wenger said of Sanchez, who is still a target for Manchester City according to Sky sources.“The decision is not to sell.”Wenger, whose side are preparing for a pre-season game against Bayern Munich on Wednesday, played down Sanchez’s comments regarding Champions League football.“I don’t give too much importance to things that are translated, you know,” he added. “The whole interview that I got didn’t really mean that.“The main focus for us is to concentrate on the Premier League and the Premier League for me today is more important than the Champions League.Arsene Wenger said reports claiming Alexis Sanchez was involved in a training ground bust-up are not true. PHOTO/SKY.“We rested sometimes players in the group stages of the Champions League for the Premier League so that’s become the biggest importance for us.“We played 20 years in the Champions League, that’s 17 years before Sanchez arrived and three years with him so he can get us back in there.”Robin van Persie was sold to Manchester United for £24m as he was due to enter the final year of his Arsenal contract, going on to steer United to the Premier League title the following season, but Wenger denied any sense of deja vu.“Every case is different, Van Persie was going from 30 to 31, when he left he had one year on his contract,” Wenger added. “Sanchez is younger.”Arsenal have brought in Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon for a club-record fee which could rise to £52m, but Wenger said the club could yet add more signings in the current transfer window.“We are still open to strengthening our team with players coming from outside.”“There are two ways to strengthen the squad – the first is to analyse where we have not done so well and where we can improve together, and the other way is to bring in players from outside,” he told Arsenal Player. “We are still open to strengthening our team with players coming from outside.“We are very active on the transfer market and have already realised two incomings. We have to keep a balance as well, that you don’t destabilise the team too much by bringing in too many players.“But we are still active on the transfer market so let’s see what kind of opportunities we can find.”-By Sky Sports-0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Aileach began well and good work by Dermot Doherty and Darren McMonagle saw the former square to brother Gavin to scoop the ball high over Ballantine from fifteen yards.Monaghan were playing some neat football but the final ball was letting them down.Aileachs McMonagle and Doherty were causing havoc on the right and but for stout defending from Johnny Sherry and Paul Gilsenan they could have added to their lead.On the stroke of half time Monaghan broke with Mark Mulhall crossing to Paul Smyth but his effort was gathered at the second attempt by Kevin McDermott.The home side increased their lead minutes into the second period when Dermot Doherty released McMonagle on the right and he advanced into the area to fire low past Ballantine.At the other end Smith turned and saw his shot saved by McDermott before the home side made it three nil on the break when the selfless Anthony Doherty released Conor Gallagher to fire home.But on 85 minutes it all began to go wrong for Aileach when Shane Hannon sneaked in at the back post to head home.Minutes later Paul Hannon capitalized on a poor defensive error to drill gome.Then in the very last minute a headed clearance from a corner was collected by James Traynor and his thirty five yards wonder strike dipped over McDermott and in off the underside of the bar.An experienced Monaghan side dominated a demoralised home side in extra time and took the lead when Conor Callan stole in behind the home defence to slot home before Paul Hannon completed his hat trick with a fine finish from close range at the end of the first half.In the second period Smith saw his shot parried by McDermott and Hannon pounced for his fourth of the game to send the winners from two seasons ago into the quarter finals.FOOTBALL: MIXED FORTUNES FOR INISHOWEN CLUBS IN ULSTER JUNIOR CUP was last modified: January 27th, 2013 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:aileachclonmanyFOOTBALL: MIXED FORTUNES FOR INISHOWEN CLUBS IN ULSTER JUNIOR CUPGlengadmoville celticlast_img read more
