New ShopRite Construction Underway In Shrewsbury

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |SHREWSBURY – Construction has begun on the new ShopRite supermarket on Shrewsbury Avenue.The 77,100-square-foot shopping center is scheduled to open in the Shrewsbury Plaza in late 2019. Plans were presented to the Zoning Board early last year and approved, but there was a delay while the parties worked out clarifications regarding some of the restrictions on the approval, said Mayor Don Burden.The store is being built by National Realty and Development Corp. “We are delighted to bring a tenant of ShopRite’s quality to Shrewsbury Plaza,” NRDC president John G. Orrico said in a media release. “The support and feedback from the community to bring ShopRite to this project has been tremendous.”The new ShopRite facility will stand on the site of the former Shrewsbury Business Center, a 10-acre office park and light industrial zone area at 1151-1163 Shrewsbury Ave. It will serve the surrounding communities of Shrewsbury, Rumson, Little Silver, Tinton Falls and Eatontown.Shrewsbury Plaza is a multi-anchored retail center located at the intersection of Route 35 and Shrewsbury Avenue. Retail outlets like Home Goods, Marshalls, AC Moore and Saks OFF 5th are located in the plaza.When construction is complete, the free-standing food store will integrate with Shrewsbury Plaza through new connector drive aisles that will provide easy access to and from the various other retail outlets.“I’m certain that Richard Saker and his team at Saker ShopRite will deliver an extraordinary grocery experience to our community,” Orrico said. “We look forward to having them as part of the Shrewsbury Plaza.”The plans approved in February 2017 allowed for 390 parking spaces.The Shrewsbury store will be the 136th ShopRite location in the Garden State, and the 11th to take a foothold in Monmouth County, joining locations in Aberdeen, Belmar, Freehold, Hazlet, Howell, Manasquan, Marlboro, Middletown, Neptune and West Long Branch.This article was first published in the Feb. 15-22, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

The eleven of the 28th day of the Diario AS in LaLiga SmartBank

first_imgAgain, the charrúa in the eleven of the day of LaLiga SmartBank, but the Girona striker is the best striker in the category. Girona came out with a draw from his visit to Riazor thanks to Stuani’s double: one at the exit of a corner and another penalty. Where would Girona be if it wasn’t for the Uruguayan …Luis Suarez (Zaragoza) Lugo takes a breath after his important victory against Fuenlabrada in Fernando Torres (0-1). Cantero’s performance was essential for the team to win. The goal had a lot of work. To highlight, a good shot of Hugo Fraile from outside the area. Three stops, one with fists and four clearances, their numbers.DefensesIribas (Fuenlabrada) It is not usual in the initial lightning onces, but when it comes out, it complies. The work of the left-handed side against Tenerife was tireless throughout the game. Luna helped keep the goal to zero, saving under sticks and with the left leg, one of the clearest chances of Tenerife, in a shot from Suso.Juankar (Málaga) The player yielded by Atlético de Madrid has been a fundamental pillar of the Coruña in the crisis and in the good times. Now he has to collect the honeys of success in this great moment of those of Fernando Vázquez. He scored the first goal of the athletes with a good shot to the opposite post of the goalkeeper of Girona.StrikersStuani (Girona) In the absence of Higinio, good is Curro in Los Pajaritos. The midfielder saved his team from a defeat with a goal in the 90’s by taking advantage of a center from the right wing. However, it was not the only carat action that the Huelva signed in the duel. A large number of dribbles, quality passes and danger plays came out of his boots.Gizzard (Sports) The other miura of the competition, Luis Suarez. Zaragoza striker saw the door again and was also the goal of the Aragonese victory. A goal of superior category, facing the goalkeeper and defining calmly in front of the Elche goalkeeper, Edgar Badía. The Colombian already has 15 goals and is the main trick of Zaragoza to get the coveted promotion. The category is too small for Mikel Rico’s good. His great game against Almeria de Gutierrez is a fact. The middle center was the best of the Oscenses: blunt in defensive tasks, fast and intelligent with the ball at his feet and accurate in attack. He also scored two goals coming from the second line. One of its virtues.Manu García (Sporting)center_img The magic of Sporting this season and, luckily for the rojiblancos, for many campaigns. The Under-21 is a talent in abundance and in El Sardinero, a throne stadium in Spanish football, he gave a class on how to lead a team from the midfield. His was the assistance in the first goal of Murelo: tense, measured and space.Curro (Numancia) Despite the defeat against Lugo, Iribas was among the most prominent players in Fuenlabrada. For his band he solved all the danger that came with two clearances, a blocked shot and an interception. In the face of the rival goal he had a chance, but his shot was cleared by Djaló.Moon (lightning) Stoichkov is in his best season as a professional scorer (he has 12 goals). Before Oviedo he scored his second double of the season, which was worth taking the three points of Carlos Tartiere. In his first goal he had some fortune: his shot was deflected by the defense before entering. The second came from the penalty spot (which he himself suffered).Mikel Rico (Huesca) The twenty-eighth day of LaLiga SmartBank He had eleven protagonists that we detail below. Doublets of Stoichkov (Alcorcón), Mikel Rico (Huesca) and Stuani (Girona). Cantero (Lugo) kept his goal to zero. Great performance by Juankar (Málaga) against Cádiz and Iribas (Fuenlabrada), against Lugo.GoalkeeperStonecutter (Lugo) Juankar played against Cádiz, one of his most complete matches of the season. His performance was total in both attack and defense. He completed 19 passes, with 70% success and won all the duels he entered (two aerial and six on the ground). He highlighted his beautiful confrontation with Salvi.MidfieldersStoichkov (Alcorcón)last_img read more

260 BDOTC Graduates Challenged to Make Use of Knowledge

first_imgYouth and Sports Minister D. Zoegar Wilson.The Business and Domestic Occupational Training Center (BDOTC) took center stage in the empowerment of young people when over the weekend it graduated 260 youth in various skills, including tailoring, baking, event decoration, cookery, beauty, culture and braiding and weaving, among others.Youth and Sports Minister D. Zeogar Wilson lauded the graduates for their commitment and hard work that have prepared them for their achievement. “This training center has graduated thousands of students, some of whom have bettered their lives through employment and entrepreneurship,” he said.The graduation ceremony was held at the Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville, outside Monrovia, which was attended by family members, friends, government officials, and partnering institutions.“Some of you will have the opportunity to be employed, others will become entrepreneurs while some will continue the job search. I want to encourage you all not to give up, to continue to have faith and believe in yourself that light is at the end of the tunnel,” Minister Wilson said.Minister Wilson’s message was read by acting Minister Audrian Smith-Forbes, who indicated that the ministry will not turn its back on the graduates, but will continue to assist them in their quest.“We are in this together,” he told them.He expressed gratitude to the director of BDOTC, Faiquen N. Gweh, and her staff for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to impart knowledge and skills to the graduates.Minister Wilson added, “We know you taught them under difficult circumstances and made tremendous sacrifices, because of your love for teaching and commitment to skillfully empower young people.”Samuel R. Enders, Representative of #6, Montserrado County, who served as the keynote speaker, told the graduates that determined people get results that others cannot get easily.Rep. Enders: “Today all of you have come thus far because of your hard work. Some of you decided to attend this school because this was the only opportunity afforded you even when people said that you could not make it.”According to him, determined people make the impossible possible in society and in the country. “You are graduating because of the level of determination you have and I want you to keep the focus on everything,” he added.“We want the government to prioritize the empowerment of young people to ensure that they have the necessary skills for the job market. Adequate knowledge is cardinal for the current generation,” said valedictorian William T. Yah.He said the empowerment of young people will create the enabling environment for Liberian youth to serve in key positions, including managers.Yah called on his colleagues to take advantage of the knowledge acquired to better their living conditions and assist in the development of Liberia.The BDOTC was established in 1975 during the leadership of President William R. Tolbert, Jr. under the Ministry of Labor, Youth, and Sports.In 2003, when the Ministry of Youth and Sports reopened the BDOTC, the school was temporarily hosted at the Monrovia Vocational Training Center (MVTC) on Somalia Drive, Paynesville, until the ministry could find a suitable place for the training center.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Labor, business both on winning side in four City Council races?

first_imgShallman said the campaign was handicapped in the primary by ongoing contract negotiations with teachers and problems with the district’s payroll system. “The message we want to get out is that Jon is an experienced teacher and in the 31/2 years he’s been on the board, class sizes are smaller and scores are improving,” he said. Galatzan’s campaign, however, plans to continue stressing the overall problems facing the district. “There’s no way to avoid it,” Galatzan campaign manager Mike Trujillo said. “It is the administration of the schools that is the problem facing the district. “What we’re asking teachers is why would they support a system that can’t even get their paychecks to them?” Both campaigns said they are analyzing who voted in the primary – or who didn’t – to figure out how to get more people to show up at the polls. The May 15 runoff is not the only impending election that Los Angeles voters can ignore. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger also will be selecting a date to hold a special election in the 39th Assembly District seat being vacated by Richard Alarc n, who was re-elected last week to the City Council. Alarc n said he wants to take office as soon as possible, although it will be about three weeks before election results are certified. After that, the governor has two weeks in which to set the date for the special election, which must be held within 126 days. That means voting likely will be sometime in mid-July. Among those expected to vie for the seat is Felipe Fuentes, former chief deputy to state Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Van Nuys. Fuentes pulled out of the City Council race after Alarc n announced his candidacy. Also being mentioned as a potential candidate is Monica Rodriguez, who finished second to Alarc n in the council race and earned high marks for her campaign. She is being urged to look at the Assembly race to capitalize on her work in the council race. A group of Republicans is trying to stem radical influences in the party by reaching out to moderates, similar to a tactic used by Democrats 12 years ago. At that time, it was the Democratic Leadership Council that ended up with the candidacy and victory of President Bill Clinton. The Republican Leadership Conference – a coalition formed by former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman and former Sen. John Danforth – is seeking to “return the Republican Party to its core principles of fiscal responsibility, limited government and respectful inclusiveness of all Americans.” The coalition has formed a national advisory panel that includes Peter Hankwitz of Northridge, who ran as the only openly gay Republican for Congress in 2006. He lost to Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Van Nuys. But Hankwitz said he hopes to bring the GOP back to its roots. “The Republican Party was once anchored … by the principle of leaders like Lincoln and Reagan – leaders who sought to promote prosperity, consensus and strength by uniting Americans together.” The group that unsuccessfully tried to bring public campaign financing to state races is launching a new effort aimed at local politics. California Clean Money has started a series of meetings to try to persuade Los Angeles to adopt a complete public campaign-financing system and is trying to work through neighborhood councils to make it happen. The group said it is working with City Council President Eric Garcetti to reach out to neighborhood councils to take up the issue and urge the City Council to adopt the proposal. In addition to Garcetti, council members Greuel and Bill Rosendahl have previously supported public campaign financing.

Runoffs will be held for two seats, with most of the attention going to the San Fernando Valley race between incumbent Jon Lauritzen and Deputy City Attorney Tamar Galatzan. Lauritzen is UTLA’s choice; Galatzan is backed by the mayor. The two fought a costly and highly charged primary race that is expected to continue for the May 15 runoff. Lauritzen, a veteran teacher, plans to continue pushing the idea of protecting Valley schools from the “powerful downtown interests” of Villaraigosa, and is hoping the UTLA will be able to turn out voters. “We hope they can be even more involved in the runoff,” John Shallman, Lauritzen’s campaign manager, said of the union. It’s not often you can hold an election in which everyone wins. Of course, it helps when turnout is dismal and a lot of your candidates are unopposed. That was the case for both the labor and business communities, which proudly took credit for the re-election Tuesday of City Council members Wendy Greuel, Tom LaBonge, Bernard Parks and Herb Wesson. All four – along with Councilman Greig Smith, who was not backed by labor – were unopposed. But labor did find some difficulties in Los Angeles Unified’s board races, which split between candidates backed by United Teachers Los Angeles and those supported by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. last_img read more

More green, more debt

first_imgThe state has about $57 billion in outstanding bond debt, according to Legislative Analyst Elizabeth Hill, and is paying about $4.8 billion this year to repay part of that debt. It also has another $64 billion in voter-authorized debt that has yet to be sold as bonds. She said the state will continue to maintain a $5 billion budget gap between what it is taking in and what it is spending. “The state is not out of the budget woods yet,” Hill said. Lockyer’s office has projected that the ratio of state revenue to debt payments will reach up to 8 percent by 2010 and then hover just above the 6 percent mark for the next 20 years. In the past, Schwarzenegger has proposed restricting the state debt ratio to 6 percent, but several state officials and experts at the conference said there is no “magic number” that should limit borrowing to a specific amount. Rather, they said, it should simply be based on policy decisions considering whether the amount of borrowing compared to the amount of revenue is a worthy tradeoff because of the value of the project itself. Although Lockyer’s proposal has not been submitted to the Legislature, some fiscal conservatives are expected to be wary of his plan as well as of other bond measures that will increase state debt. Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, said he is skeptical of cost- savings claims touted by solar- energy experts, in part because such savings are sometimes achieved through tax benefits – which the state would not realize on its own buildings. He added that California needs to do a better job managing its budget and finances before it looks to borrow more money. “It would not surprise me that there may be a state with a bigger debt ratio that has a better bond rating than California, because quite frankly we just don’t spend our money very wisely,” Coupal said in a telephone interview.

Even as state Treasurer Bill Lockyer outlined a proposal for a $5 billion bond measure to “green” state buildings Wednesday, a panel of experts and state officials said that, although California has more capacity to issue debt, it must proceed carefully. Lockyer’s measure would increase environmental efficiencies – such as the use of solar power – in all state buildings. On average, he said, studies have shown that every $500 invested in green technology results in $863 in savings – meaning the measure would pay for itself in savings, in addition to the environmental benefits. State government owns about 206 million square feet of building space, he said. “We’re the largest building owner in the state of California,” Lockyer said. “Most of them are very inefficient. If we start to invest in reconditioning, adding solar and other systems that will bring down energy use, we can save an extraordinary amount of energy and taxpayer costs.” The proposal has been drafted but has yet to be submitted to the Legislature for a vote to place it on the ballot. Lockyer spoke at a conference on state debt organized by the Public Policy Institute of California. Experts at the conference said that even though California has the second-lowest bond rating in the nation, it still has the capacity to borrow more money. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proposed placing a $9 billion bond for water projects on the ballot next year, and is expected to propose tens of billions more in the next two years to fulfill his Strategic Growth Plan. last_img read more

Bayern Munich turned down ‘huge bid’ for Thomas Muller this summer, says president

first_img Germany international Thomas Muller Bayern Munich rejected a ‘very high’ offer for Germany international Thomas Muller this summer, but president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge refused to reveal which club tabled the bid.Manchester United were heavily linked with a big-money move for the forward late in the transfer window as manager Louis van Gaal frantically searched for stars to boost his attacking options.Real Madrid were also reportedly interested in the 25-year-old, but the Bundesliga champions refused to sell one of their prize assets.However, Rummenigge revealed there had been a hefty sum on the table at one point.“I’m talking about figures which were very high indeed,” he said. “If I were a bank manager then I would have had to accept it.“But as a football club we allowed ourselves to close the door on it, and this door is remaining closed. I can promise that to everybody.“But one thing is for certain, in view of the increased television money in England things are not going to get any easier for Bayern in future.”That influx of money from next season is set to make the Premier League even more enticing when it comes to signing top players in the future.However, Rummenigge has praised English clubs for the way they are being run, saying their potential success is not going to be down to money alone but rather how they have invested it.“I’ve taken a look at Manchester City’s youth academy and all I can say is it doesn’t get any better than that,” Rummenigge told the Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper.“I have also visited Tottenham’s, Arsenal’s and Chelsea’s and it’s the same wherever you go.“I can tell you that the English are going all out, also in terms of youth development.” 1last_img read more

MySpace ads to warn kids online

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventThe spots, which computer users will be able to see on MySpace in the form of banner ads, are part of a campaign launched two years ago by the Ad Council and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. The campaign warns parents and teens that sexual predators are increasingly using the veil of anonymity provided by online chat rooms, forums and social networking sites to target minors. Popular online social networking hub said Monday it would begin displaying public service ads aimed at educating its users, many of them teens, about the dangers posed by sexual predators on the Internet. MySpace, a division of News Corp., enables computer users to meet any of more than 60 million members. Users put up profiles that are searchable and can include photos of themselves and such details as where they live. But MySpace’s features and popularity with teens has raised concerns with authorities across the nation. There have been scattered accounts of sexual predators targeting minors they met through the site. The ads were slated to begin running Monday on MySpace and through a host of News Corp. outlets, Fox All Access radio and the New York Post. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
