John Blewett nabs second straight victory at Wall

first_imgWALL TOWNSHIP— John Blewett III of Howell scored his second straight Modified win Saturday night in the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series 35-lap main event at Wall Township Speedway. Coming from a 15th starting slot, Blewett raced into the lead for good with just 10 laps remaining. Shanon Mongeau of Matawan and Brick’s Mike Carpenter were the stars of the show early on as they battled for the lead. This fight for first lasted until lap 16, when the two leaders touched and Mongeau went spinning. Mongeau obviously felt that Carpenter’s contact contributed to his spin, and more contact then occurred while the field was under caution. Shanon Mongeau’s father, Rich Mongeau, also got involved in the caution-period action before all three drivers were disqualified from the race. The action handed the lead to Del George Jr. on the restart as Blewett continued his charge into third. When the second place running Curtis Truex Jr. of Mayetta slid out of second on the front stretch on lap 24, Blewett advanced to third and set his sights on the leader. A lap-25 caution put Blewett right on George’s rear bumper, and Blewett then used the opportunity to dive to the inside lane and into the lead moments later. Blewett then raced to victory, while George crossed the line second for his best Modified finish ever. Frank Polimeda of Fort Lee, Freehold’s Steven Reed and Truex were third through fifth. “I am just so happy for the people who work on this car,” Blewett said. “They should get the credit. They put a lot of time in during the week and again on Saturdays.” In regards to the Carpenter/Mongeau incident Blewett said: “I think they should take a good look at what made them spin. The lap before, there was oil or something on the track up there that made it real slippery.” In just his first season of Pro Stock racing, Elliott Wohl of Freehold held off the best in the business to win his first-ever 25-lapper. Wohl took the lead from Wall’s Rich DeSarno on lap six before beating multi-time winners George Andretta of Wall and Chas Okerson of Freehold to the line in tight formation. DeSarno was fourth and Mike Smith was fifth. After some very tough luck earlier this season, John McCormack of Farmingdale led wire-to-wire to take his first 25-lap Street Stock win of the year. Adam LaCicero of Lavallette, Jim Downey of Cliffwood Beach, Brick’s Ron Frees and point leader Dave Jennings of Howell wrapped up the top five. Rich Losh of Joppa, Md., grabbed his first win of the year in the 20-lapper for the Legend Cars. Losh, the current point leader, battled in a tight pack for the lead most of the way, with Polimeda and Jason Rochelle of Hacketstown crossing the line second and third. Jim Tomaino of Bayville and Ronnie Dunstan were fourth and fifth. Bill Weichert of Chatham came from 13th to win the 20-lapper for the Truck Series, taking the lead from Ken McGowan with nine laps remaining. Keith Mullineaux of Egg Harbor Township, Steve Naylor of Galloway Township, Keansburg’s Jerry Stanzione and Jim Bruno of Smithville were second through fifth. NASCAR Nextel Cup team owner Ray Evernham, who began his career as a driver at the third-mile paved oval, will return to his roots this Saturday night to drive a Modified stock car in the 50-lap Larsen Brothers Memorial race. Evernham, a Hazlet native, will also meet with fans and sign autographs early in the evening. In addition to the Modifieds, the Pro Stocks, Street Stocks, Legend Cars, TQ Midget and Truck Series racers will see competition. Grandstand seating will open at 5 p.m. and racing will start at 7 p.m. Penalties announced from July 3 incident Wall Township Speedway officials have announced penalties resulting from unsportsmanlike conduct during the recent Marian O’Rorke Memorial at the third-mile paved oval. Jimmy Blewett of Howell has been suspended from competition for four events and will have to pay a $500 fine before returning to racing. Harry Reed of Freehold has been suspended for two events. Both drivers will also be on probation for the remainder of the 2004 season.last_img read more

City Council sticking to liquor licensing policies

first_imgThe company was applauded for bringing forward the request, as in the past operators of arenas have turned a blind eye to drinking in dressing rooms, but as City Manager Dianne Hunter pointed out, municipalities are no longer finding it an acceptable practice. “It’s been a huge issue, not just in Fort St. John,” she says. “It is changing, so this has been a process that we’ve been working really hard with the user groups on. There is a lot of uptake now that drinking in the change room is just not acceptable.” Hunter cites difficulties in getting people out of the building by closing time, and possible damage to facilities as just some of the reasons against allowing drinking in dressing rooms. The event also takes place during the day, when there will be families using the facilities, and students in class at the Energetic Learning Campus. Two similar requests for allowing liquor in dressing rooms have been denied by council before, for similar reasons.- Advertisement – Council has recently updated its alcohol policy, which has a “Zero Tolerance” approach for alcoholic beverages in City facilities, and allows for Beer Gardens or Special Occasion Licences on a case-by-case basis. Hockey teams have agreed to place sanctions on or suspend teammates and coaches caught disobeying the no-liquor rules. Councillor Byron Stewart, who initially supported allowing the licence, says this may be an opportunity to create new policy.”I do see this as an opportunity for a policy to be created, with very strict guidelines,” he says. “If a policy is going to be drawn up at any point in time, I do think this is a good group to work with and a good opportunity to build something that would protect the city and also allow the opportunity in the future for a person to have a couple beers after playing a hockey game.”Advertisement Although DGS Astro is a company respected by City Council, the worry was also that this would open, as Acting Mayor Dan Davies put it, Pandora’s Box of liquor requests. “A licence isn’t going to make any difference in a person’s behaviour after they’ve consumed alcohol,” Hunter argues. “This is really going to be a challenge for the message we’ve given out to other user groups.” Even if council was to approve the licence, it would still be subject to approval by both RCMP and the B.C. Liquor Control and Licensing Branch. Although their request was turned down, participants in next year’s Colas Cup won’t have to go far to enjoy a beverage after their workout, as their celebration will be held at the Curling Club next door.last_img read more

Whittier College approves Campus Inn expansion

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WHITTIER – Plans are moving forward for a $16.5 million renovation and expansion of Whittier College’s nearly 50-year-old Campus Inn, turning the aging cafeteria into a social focal point where students “can be and be seen,” officials said Wednesday. Preliminary plans approved recently by the college’s Board of Trustees would add approximately 20,000 square feet to the existing 37,000-square-foot facility, which now has a dining area, a bookstore, a cafe, student life and student government offices and a student lounge. After the modernization, the new campus center would have additional rooms for entertaining, a copying center, and a small amphitheater. Construction could begin this summer, officials said. “The campus center is going to be a place where students can be and be seen and find connections with not only their peers but the faculty and staff,” said Barny Peake, director of student activities. A member of the college’s building committee, Peake wrote the initial feasibility study for the center’s renovation. The Campus Inn is on the northeast corner of Painter Avenue and Earlham Drive. Once the project is completed, he said, the new campus center will serve as a cornerstone on the college’s south end, in the same way the Shannon Center anchors the north side of the campus. “We’re really excited about this,” said Jan Legoza, vice president for finance and administration. “This will be a place for students, faculty and staff to meet and come together, to socialize and eat.” Nationally, more and more colleges and universities are updating their on-campus dining facilities, turning them into campus social centers, Peake said. “This is something we feel the students recognized and wanted, and I don’t feel right now that we have a place on campus that has all of these things,” he said. “We can’t wait.” tracy.garcia@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3051last_img read more

SA processes 5 000 land claims in one month

first_img31 July 2014 The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform has processed close to 5 000 new applications since President Jacob Zuma signed a law re-opening South Africa’s land claims lodgement process. Zuma signed the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Act of 2014 at the end of last month, allowing people who were removed from their land under apartheid rule, but who missed an earlier deadline for lodging claims for compensation, to do within the next five years. It is estimated that at least 3.5-million South Africans were forcibly removed from their land as a result of the Native Land Act of 1913, which effectively reserved 87 percent of land in the country for the white minority. To date, an estimated 1.7-million people have benefitted from the country’s restitution programme. Briefing members of Parliament’s portfolio committee on rural development and land reform at the department’s regional office in Mowbray, Cape Town on Wednesday, Chief Land Claims Commissioner Nomfundo Gobodo said the process had gone smoothly since re-opening. “As at 25 July 2014, the claims captured over the past four weeks increased to 4 917. The electronic lodgement system has been stable and all 14 lodgement sites are fully operational.” Gobodo said it was difficult to anticipate how many claimants would lodge new claims going forward, but that her office had the capacity to facilitate all claims. Most new claims are expected to come from individuals and communities who were left out of the previous claims round – between 1994 and 1998 – but have since become aware of their rights. Claims that could not be finalised during the pre-1998 round would be prioritised, Gobodo said. The department will deploy mobile offices to rural areas to help people who might not be able to afford transport to prepare their claims. The offices will ensure that claimants have everything they need to lodge a valid claim – including information on the people on whose behalf they may be claiming – to insure their claims are not disqualified for technical reasons. Phumzile Ngwenya-Mabila, the chairperson of the portfolio committee, said the MPs’ had decided to visit the Mowbray centre in order assess the lodgement process and the progress made since the second phase was opened.
