Governor Wolf Announces Funding to Expand Juniata County Industrial Park to Meet Growing Demand

first_imgGovernor Wolf Announces Funding to Expand Juniata County Industrial Park to Meet Growing Demand SHARE Email Facebook Twitter August 15, 2018center_img 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.last_img read more

Real defy crisis talk as Barca extend lead

first_imgRonaldo 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.last_img read more

Sabres slaughter Kings in 10-1 win

first_imgHe won’t forget this one. Pominville, with a natural hat trick, and Jochen Hecht scored three goals apiece in Buffalo’s 10-1 win over the Kings on Saturday night. Jeff Cowan, scoring late in the first period, had the lone goal for the Kings, who gave up 10 goals for the first time since a 10-3 loss to Washington, Feb. 13, 1993. The margin of defeat matched the Kings’ worst since a 9-0 loss to Montreal in the 1975-76 season opener. “They walked all over us,” Kings captain Mattias Norstrom said. “A loss like this you start to talk about pride. As a team, as individuals, we got embarrassed out there.” Goalie Mathieu Garon, coming off a 6-0 win at Boston on Thursday night, had the toughest night. Garon allowed four goals on 10 shots and was pulled twice, the final time after Hecht scored on a screened shot from the right circle midway through the first period. Hecht’s two other goals came against backup Adam Hauser, who allowed six goals on 24 shots in his NHL debut. The Sabres scored on three of their first six shots, the eruption beginning when McKee scored on a slap shot 1:06 into the game. Drury, set up in the slot by Grier, scored 13 seconds later, and Kotalik made it 3-0 off a rebound at 4:33. The margin of victory, however, wasn’t as important as the Sabres finally getting production in even-strength situations – something coach Lindy Ruff had stressed all week. Buffalo finished with six even-strength goals and scored three more on the power play. Pominville also scored on a short-handed breakaway. Drury made sure to remind everyone that this was only one game, as the Sabres prepare to open a six-game trip, their longest of the season. “It’s nothing to gloat about,” Drury said. “It’s two points and we’ll move on.” It didn’t help that the Kings are a banged-up team. Pavol Demitra missed his fourth game with a leg injury and Lubomir Visnovsky, second among NHL defensemen with 45 points, did not play because of flu-like symptoms. No excuses, Kings coach Andy Murray said. He did not address his team after the game. “I said most of my things after the first and second periods,” Murray said. “I said my piece and it was time for them to come up with an explanation. … We just weren’t very good.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It hasn’t happened in almost 13 years, when Pominville was 10 years old growing up in Quebec. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita“It’s awesome,” Pominville said. “It doesn’t happen too often. So it’s fun to see the team work hard and have it finally pay off.” Hecht also will have fond memories of the game after recording his first career three-goal game in his six-year NHL career “Happy to get it out of the way, but it’s also great for `Pommer’ to get his first one, too,” Hecht said. Chris Drury had a goal and three assists, Ales Kotalik had a goal and two assists and Jay McKee and Daniel Paille also scored. Tim Connolly and Mike Grier had three assists each for Buffalo, which built a 5-0 lead 17 minutes in. The 10 goals were the most the Sabres scored since a 10-7 win over Detroit on Feb 24, 1993. And Buffalo’s five-goal first period was the team’s best since scoring five in a 7-1 win over Washington on Dec. 31, 2003. The Sabres also snapped a two-game winless streak (0-1-1), their longest since losing four consecutive from Nov. 2-9. last_img
