Just Like any Good Recipe, Early Prep is Key for Thanksgiving…

first_imgFacebook2Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Washington State Department of TransportationWhile making plans for the big holiday feast, be sure to add travel prep to the Thanksgiving to-do list. The Washington State Department of Transportation urges all travelers to “know before you go” and plan head for smoother travel during the busy holiday weekend.The agency also provides several tools to help plan holiday travels:Consult WSDOT’s travel times charts, which use historical information to help drivers know before they go.Check out online tools, including mobile apps, traffic cameras and email alerts.Visit WSDOT’s online traveler information about traffic, weather and ferry schedules.Follow WSDOT’s social media accounts, such as Twitter and Facebook.Pre-program 530 AM and 1610 AM to vehicle radios for highway advisory radio alerts.Carry chains and other winter driving essentials.Check current chain and traction requirements on the WSDOT passes website or by calling 5-1-1, and watch for highway advisory signs.Leave extra time for holiday and winter travel, slow down and leave extra space between vehicles when driving on snow or ice.Apple Cup travelThose traveling to the Friday, Nov. 23, Apple Cup football game in Pullman should prepare for possible winter weather on passes and allow extra travel time. A detour on State Route 26 near Othello – the main route to Pullman from the west side of the state – will continue for the holiday weekend to allow concrete to cure. The detour adds 15 minutes to the normal drive, but travelers should prepare for delays during heavy holiday or game-day traffic. Westbound traffic on I-90 at Snoqualmie Pass both Saturday, Nov. 24, and Sunday, Nov. 25, is likely to be heavier than normal with both game and holiday travelers, so please allow extra time or alter travel plans if possible.Mountain passesSR 123 Cayuse Pass and SR 410 Chinook Pass remain open as of Nov. 15, but check the winter closure webpage for updates before traveling because conditions could cause the passes to close before the holiday.SR 20 North Cascades Highway also remains open as of Nov. 15 and details about the road status and winter closure also are available online.On Interstate 90 Snoqualmie Pass travelers can receive text alerts for pass delays of 30 minutes or longer – text “wsdot snoqualmie” to 468311 to subscribe, and “wsdot stop” to unsubscribe.TollsIn the Puget Sound area, the SR 520 bridge will have weekend toll rates on Thanksgiving, Nov. 22, returning to weekday rates on Friday, Nov. 23. On the I-405 express toll lanes, travel is free for all on the Thanksgiving holiday, returning to normal toll and HOV requirements from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday. Weekends are always free to travel in the express toll lanes. Out-of-town travelers, including those using rental cars, can learn about toll roads and short term account options on the Good to Go! visitors page.Other travel alternativesTravelers planning a trip by ferry, train, personal aircraft or bus also should make plans to avoid holiday delays:Please plan ahead for heavy holiday ferry traffic and consider purchasing tickets online to save time. The longest lines are expected westbound Wednesday afternoon and evening, Nov. 21, and eastbound Friday morning, Nov. 23. Reservations are recommended on the Anacortes/San Juan Islands/Sidney, British Columbia and Port Townsend/Coupeville routes.

Sorry, Mr. President

first_imgTo The Editor:With the holiday season in full swing and the constant bombardment on television related to the Republican Presidential Nomination process I have made a decision.  I am throwing my wholehearted support behind Former Speaker Newt Gingrich.  I know, I know, some of you readers may be scratching your heads why, but before you totally dismiss this commentary, check out his ideas located on his website and his new 21st Century Contract with America.I am no political pundit and I cannot quote statistics but what I can say is that while Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, the greatest growth our country has seen in decades existed including having a surplus instead of deficits.  In my personal life, as well as running a small business, the reality of sound fiscal practices dictate you can not spend more than you take in, it’s that simple.  Speaker Gingrich’s plan is to drastically reduce the size of government by eliminating unnecessary agencies, departments and “czars”, pass a balanced budget amendment, approve the Keystone Pipeline, and the list goes on, including “Day One” Executive Orders and a multitude of legislative proposals.  Sure, there is a lot of rhetoric like every other politician and Speaker Gingrich has been a member of the establishment, but the fact remains it is going to take a Washington insider to get this country moving forward again.  This need for leadership and legislative success is evident, given the President’s inability to get Congress on the same page or at least move them in a positive direction.  Newt Gingrich is the only candidate (including the President) with a record of accomplishments during a great time of prosperity for our country.  Newt Gingrich is a historian known for his great intellect and ideas.  I, too, majored in history and we all know that unless things change we are bound to repeat the same mistakes over and over.I voted for President Obama.  I believed in his message and his sincerity and his desire to make a change for the better. I am glad I voted for President Obama.  I think that was the only sound decision for me and this country at the time.  I believe voting for President Obama again would be a mistake and not a good decision for me or our country.  Newt Gingrich, in my opinion, is the whole package: he has the intellect, the knowhow, and the inside experience to get Congress working again to put this country back on top where it belongs.I am proud to be an American.  I am tired of being disgruntled. I am tired of watching the news about people protesting, being unemployed and jobs being outsourced.  It is time that we harness what made this country great, our people unified as a nation, making a difference at home and in our communities, and eventually the world.  More importantly, each and every generation prospering and doing better than the last.  I ask you to consider Newt Gingrich.  Thank you and God Bless America.

Holmdel Mayor Critelli Denies Conflict of Interest

first_imgBy Christina Johnson HOLMDEL – During a meeting of the governing body Tuesday, Mayor Thomas Critelli read aloud a statement denying allegations he has a conflict of interest concerning a property formerly owned by his development company. That property is currently included in the township’s plan to satisfy its affordable housing obligation.In Dec. 2015, court records show that Danitom Development, Inc., a company co-owned by Critelli and associate Mike Guerra, signed a purchase agreement for a Holmdel property located on North Beers Street near Bayshore Medical Center.That purchase agreement – not be confused with a binding bill of sale – allowed Critelli the flexibility to assign all of the rights, duties, benefits and obligations of the property under that contract to another company in Dec. 2016.That company is Hackensack Investment LLC, an organization owned by his associate, Guerra, says Lea Shave, a resident who is running for Township Committee as an independent.“You bought the property in 2015, and sold it in 2016, that’s an entire year you had that property and were possibly involved in COAH discussions as a committee member,” Shave added, referring to affordable housing obligation planning. “I don’t see that as a rookie mistake. I see that as someone who was possibly taking advantage of development. I think this is a symptom of a lack of transparency and entitlement adopted by our Township Committee.”Shave initiated these allegations against Critelli last week, when she posted photos of public court documents on her Facebook page ElectLeaShave.At the public meeting, Critelli refuted the claim, stating that after Danitom entered the purchase agreement, “I realized as a member of the Township Committee it was better for me to not own investment property in Holmdel to avoid any potential conflict of interest.”By completing the divestiture in 2016, Critelli said he eliminated himself from having any potential conflict of interest in the property and “extinguished any conflict that could have arisen from having an interest in the property moving forward.”In 2017 the Township Committee took two actions relating to COAH, including a vote on a proposed affordable housing settlement agreement and zoning pertaining to affordable housing.Critelli noted that he did not take part in any of those votes and said, “Had I been at the voting meetings I would have placed a recusal on the record out of abundance of caution.”Resident Barbara Singer, a Democrat who is running for Township Committee, said she has no problem with members of the Township Committee conducting business in town or investing in property, “but there is a right way and wrong way to conduct that business.”“There are numerous statements on file about the political gains going on in Holmdel that have not only delayed the finalization of an affordable housing agreement, but have interfered in the ongoing business of others who have tried to seek investments in Holmdel,” Singer added. “I appreciate that you recused yourself from votes regarding COAH, but there have been discussions going on for years that you have been a party to while you were indeed the person on that purchase contract.”Critelli said the only reason an issue has been raised is because in 2017, after the Township Committee approved an affordable housing settlement and that agreement proceeded to litigation, another developer interested in COAH-related properties in Holmdel voiced concerns about the mayor’s past involvement with the North Beers Street parcel.“At the time it went to court a developer raised a concern in a public court filing, which was recently publicized by one of my political opponents. This is not news,” Critelli said.Critelli said that in response to the developer’s concerns he filed a sworn statement under penalty of perjury explaining his 2016 divestiture and certified that neither himself, his immediate family, nor any business he is associated with had any financial interest or stake in the property.Township Administrator Donna M. Vieiro said an update on the status of Holmdel’s COAH litigation is expected to be made public during an upcoming meeting of the governing body in October or November.This article was first published in the Oct. 11-18, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Cats coach confident of better days ahead for Kootenay squad

first_imgEven after losing two of three games on the Island, Wildcats skipper Cary Fisher remains confident there are bigger and better days ahead for the Kootenay-based squad.“Had you watched the game you would not have believed we came up short,” Fisher told The Nelson Daily after the Cats dropped two of three BC Female Midget AAA Hockey League games to the Vancouver Island Hurricanes this past weekend in Campbell River.Vancouver Island won the final two games by 3-1 and 2-1 scores.Kootenay opened the series with a 5-2 win thanks to the two-goal performance of Denomie Vockeroth-Fisher of Rossland.Danica Dahlin (Golden), Kimberley Huisman (Fernie) and Keegan Paterson (Nelson) also scored for the Cats, which held period leads of 3-1 and 4-2.Cats’ netminder Morgan Flynn (Castlegar) was in goal for the win. “This weekend was tough after coming out and playing well enough to score five goals we struggled to find the net in the next two games,” Fisher explained.“The players worked very hard in both losses and we had a great time of possession advantage in both losses.”Vockeroth-Fisher and Stephanie McAuley (Trail) scored the other goals for Kootenay.“I think our goal needs to be more engaged in the moment,” said Fisher.“For non athletes this may seem a bit odd but it works like this — a player can work hard but in the moment they can loose focus even while working hard.  We missed the net a lot and we missed open players. “Kootenay, 4-4-1, drops to fourth in BCFMHL standings, but is only one point from second in the six-team league.Fraser Valley Phantom tops the league with an 8-0-2 record.“I guess the best way to describe it is paying attention to details and being more surgical in our approach,” said Fisher, pleased with the play of Keegan Paterson of Nelson, McAyla Yuris (Trail) and Denomie Vockeroth-Fisher.“Simple is best with most things in life and I believe this team will find a simple game very soon.”The Cats are off until November 22 when Kootenay travels to Kelowna for a three-game set against the Okanagan Rockets.last_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SATURDAY JANUARY 10, 2015

He was the regular rider of three potential champions and was a giving and gracious ambassador of the sport, but he won’t win an Eclipse Award as Outstanding Jockey of 2014.What’s a man to do?When you’re not one of the three finalists for the honor, to be announced Jan. 17 at Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino, you can’t win. The three finalists are Javier Castellano, Joel Rosario and John Velazquez.“I’m a little disappointed,” said Espinoza’s agent, Brian Beach, “because his body of work over the entire year, from January to December, was pretty good, and it wasn’t just a one-horse show.“He rode the winners of nine Grade I stakes and was tied for third with Castellano in that category. He went to Royal Ascot and won a race there, and he did a lot of good things for racing throughout the year.“There are four Eclipse Award finalists that Victor was a big part of (American Pharoah and Hootenanny, 2-year-old male; Take Charge Brandi, 2-year-old filly; and California Chrome, 3-year-old male and Horse of the Year).“I don’t know how that stacks up in the history of Eclipse voting, whether there ever were three horses that won Eclipse Awards one jockey had ridden regularly, but it’s pretty impressive to me, anyway,” Beach said.Espinoza couldn’t have been more obliging during the Triple Crown run, signing autographs, making public appearances, bantering with David Letterman on “Late Night” TV.“Besides me, we had two or three other people handling all the requests for Victor,” Beach said. “Because he’s bi-lingual, the Hispanic media wanted time with him as well. Victor accommodated every single person and gave one-on-one interviews when he could, all the way until hours before the Belmont.“In addition to Letterman, he rang the bell on Wall Street for the traditional stock market opening, did all the things he was asked to do, and was such a good sport about everything.“Because this was his second time experiencing the Triple Crown (the 42-year-old Espinoza won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness in 2002 aboard War Emblem), I think this time he was trying to enjoy it more. The first time, I don’t think he knew what to expect.”WARREN‘S VENEDA ‘OUTRUNS HER PEDIGREE’Warren’s Veneda isn’t in the exclusive company of Clubhouse Ride, a $22,000 bargain who has earned more than $1 million, but the 5-year-old mare is doing all right for a homebred.The California-bred daughter of Affirmative, owned by and bred by Benjamin C. Warren and trained by Craig Lewis, who also conditions Clubhouse Ride, has earned $407,012 with five wins, three seconds and five thirds from 19 starts.Lewis hopes she’ll add to her bankroll when she runs in Sunday’s $75,000 Paseana Stakes for older fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles.“She’s outrun her pedigree, that’s for sure,” Lewis said. “Not bad for a handshake deal. She’s better than an empty stall. That was a heartbreaker there,” Lewis said, referring to the chestnut’s head defeat last out in the Bayakoa Stakes at Los Alamitos Race Course Dec. 6.The field: Legacy, Edwin Maldonado, 12-1; Valiant Emilia, Rafael Bejarano, 10-1; Zilber, Tiago Pereira, 20-1; Tiz Midnight, Victor Espinoza, 8-5; Warren’s Veneda, Tyler Baze, 3-1; My Sweet Addiction, Mike Smith, 3-1; Eblouissante, Gary Stevens, 10-1; and Taste Like Candy, Kent Desormeaux, 9-2.FINISH LINES: Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Texas Red, an Eclipse Award finalist for top male 2-year-old of 2014, worked seven furlongs at Santa Anita Saturday in 1:17.80, handily from the gate. Hall of Fame jockey Kent Desormeaux was aboard for his brother, Keith, who trains the son of Afleet Alex, ticketed for the San Vicente Stakes at seven furlongs on Feb. 1 . . . From HRTV’s Scott Hazelton via Twitter comes word that 2014 Robert B.

I got him in 1:11 2/5, but the official time was 1:11 3/5,” Alan said.Los Alamitos head clocker Russ Hudak recorded fractional times of 23 1/5, 47 2/5 and 59 1/5. “He looked really good,” Hudak said. “He was kind of being eased up at the finish.”If the stars align properly, the Grade II San Antonio at a mile and an eighth could bring together Bayern and Shared Belief for a Breeders’ Cup Classic rematch in the San Antonio everyone in racing wants to see.Bayern led throughout the mile and a quarter Classic to win by a nose, with Chrome third by a neck and Shared Belief four lengths back in fourth after losing considerable ground due to a rough start.California Chrome, in a weekly work pattern each Saturday, will deviate from his agenda for his next breeze, which will be Monday, Jan. 19, instead of Saturday, Jan. 17.“Mom, Dad and I will be in Florida for the Eclipse Awards next Saturday,” Sherman said.
