Governor Wolf Announces Funding to Expand Juniata County Industrial Park to Meet Growing Demand SHARE Email Facebook Twitter August 15, 2018 Economy, Infrastructure, Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced new funding to expand the Juniata County Industrial Park by nearly 60 acres.“Awarding this grant removes a long-standing barrier to economic growth in the region – no room to grow,” Gov. Wolf said. “This helps to solve that problem by significantly expanding available land and matching that with the necessary infrastructure to make the industrial park a place for businesses to set up shop and grow.”The Juniata County Industrial Development Authority was awarded a $2 million grant to acquire about 59 acres adjacent to the existing industrial park near Mifflintown, which will allow for the addition of 12 lots with sizes ranging from 1.5 to 2.6 acres. The grant will also fund the expansion of necessary infrastructure, including storm sewer, sanitary sewer, access road, and potable water to the first phase of the project.The Juniata County Industrial Park is home to 24 business that employ more than 460 people. With only four small-size vacant lots, the industrial park has faced growth constraints. Further expanding the industrial park is expected to spur economic growth by providing space for businesses to develop in Juniata County.“Increasing the capacity of the industrial park will bring more family-sustaining job opportunities to our area,” Senator Jake Corman said. “With access to a well-trained workforce, highways and other local resources, employers know that Juniata County is a great place to locate.”Supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) program, funding will support critical expansion projects, some of which will provide opportunities for additional economic development.
Ronaldo had only scored four league goals before Sunday’s clash with third-from-bottom Deportivo, but the Portuguese added Real’s fifth and sixth with a smart volley and a diving header as they moved back above Villarreal and into the Champions League places.Villarreal had temporarily taken fourth with a 2-1 win over Levante on Saturday after beating Real at the Bernabeu for the first time ever last week.Gareth Bale and Nacho also bagged braces each side of half-time and Luka Modric curled home a 68th-minute beauty as Real came back from a shock early deficit, a 23rd-minute tap-in from Adrian, to romp to an emphatic victory and ease the pressure on coach Zinedine Zidane.“We needed that. In any case, it’s what we were missing in the sense that scoring seven goals at home this season, it’s hugely staisfying, and a relief,” said Zidane.Barcelona’s forward Lionel Messi celebrates after scoring a goal against Real Betis on January 21, 2018 © AFP / CRISTINA QUICLERThe win leaves Real five points behind Valencia in third, after Marcelino’s side had two players sent off in a shock 2-1 loss at lowly Las Palmas on Saturday.Real had come into Sunday’s match in crisis following some dismal performances that culminated in last week’s defeat to Villarreal, and the mess seemed to have grown deeper when Adrian tapped home Lucas Perez’s low cross.However, the home side reacted immediately and by half-time were 2-1 up thanks to Nacho’s neat first-time strike and a superb curling effort from Bale.The floodgates opened in the second half, with Bale adding his second from a towering header and Luka Modric expertly whipping home Real’s fourth.– Phone check –Ronaldo met Casemiro’s cross to make it five and then crashed home Lucas Vazquez’s cross, taking a boot in the face from Fabian Schar in the process.As Ronaldo was led off the pitch to have his bleeding head quickly patched up he asked to see the phone of one of Real’s medical staff and, pointing the camera at himself, used it to check the damage to his face.Nacho completed the rout in the dying minutes.Second-placed Atletico Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Girona on Saturday meant Barca extended their lead with victory, leaving coach Ernesto Valverde waxing lyrical about Messi.“You have to enjoy what Messi does — I’ve suffered against him as an opposing player and I know what it is,” he said.“What we saw tonight was spectacular. He’s the best player ever.”After a goalless first period, Ivan Rakitic opened the scoring on 59 minutes, converting a sublime pass from Suarez.Messi thumped home the second from outside the box on 64 minutes before he and Rakitic teamed up to present Suarez with a volley on 69 minutes to effectively seal the three points.Betis were making mistakes at the back and when Zouhair Feddal clumsily gave the ball away on halfway to Suarez, the Uruguayan sent Messi scampering away.Faced with two defenders, Messi dummied to shoot, drifted past both and calmly slotted home past goalkeeper Antonio Adan.There was still time for Suarez to complete his brace with a crisp finish after Messi had driven at the heart of an over-matched defence.The only downside for the league leaders was a hamstring injury to Thomas Vermaelen in the first half that precipitated French centre-back Samuel Umtiti’s own return from a hamstring problem.Earlier, Joseba Zaldua scored a last-minute equaliser as Leganes came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Alaves.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Real Madrid’s forward Cristiano Ronaldo (R) celebrates with Gareth Bale during the Spanish league football match against Deportivo on January 21, 2018 © AFP / OSCAR DEL POZOMADRID, Spain, Jan 21 – Real Madrid moved back into the top four of La Liga by thumping lowly Deportivo La Coruna 7-1 on Sunday, with Cristiano Ronaldo ending a miserable run of league form with a late double.But Barcelona still extended their lead to 11 points — and 19 ahead of Real — as Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both hit a brace in a 5-0 romp at Real Betis.
