City Of Kenai Receives Grant For Security Cameras

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The City of Kenai received a grant in the amount of $16,800 from the Rasmuson Foundation for the purchase and installation of security cameras at the City’s historical cabins in Old Town Kenai.The City applied for the grant after discussion with the Kenai Historical Society, according to a letter submitted to the Kenai City Council from City Planner Elizabeth Appleby. Photo provided by the Kenai Historical Society The city council will look at an ordinance at their meeting on Wednesday that would accept the funds from the Rasmuson Foundation and move forward to purchase and install the security cameras. The City of Kenai in cooperation with the Kenai Historical Society will maintain the security cameras once they are installed. The City has experience using security cameras to monitor crimes with the annual dipnet fishery. Several cameras monitor the beaches every year during the fishery and have been used successfully to deter crime and catch offenders.center_img It is expected that the money will be used to install five (5) security cameras with heated enclosures and wireless viewing of the security footage, according to Appleby. According to Appleby, the historical cabins in Old Town Kenai have been repeatedly burglarized. Dummy cameras have not solved the issue. Real cameras with heaters would allow the City to monitor the cabins and catch potential trespassers. In the past, cabin break-ins have left the doors flung open in winter, causing damage to the structures and the artifacts inside the cabin.last_img read more

Justin Timberlake for the Super Bowl halftime show? He’s no Prince! (Feb. 21)

first_imgBILL NEAL:10—Please…Do me a favor and for that matter do yourself a favor and stop lying. You did not have the “Philly Dogs” winning the Super Bowl. Yea, you may have wanted them to win, but you, me and 75 percent of the country had “Tom Terrific” and “Super Bill” Belichick taking home Lombardi. Admit it and life will be better for you, I promise.:09—However, I must confess it did give me a bit of trifecta.  No. 1, the Pats didn’t tie the Steelers for most Super Bowls. No. 2, James Harrison got to go to the dance and dance he did. No. 3, “Ding dong the witch is dead. The wicked witch is dead!”:08—OK, so let’s have that conversation, and I hope my on-air colleague Kevin Cameron is reading this. Somebody, anybody, please tell me how James Harrison played the entire Super Bowl. And well, we know this because Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth talked about him all night. Look, there’s three things that are hard for a man to do. No. 1, watch a pretty woman turn and walk away. No. 2, lose all your money at the tables. And No. 3, admit that I am right. Kevy–Kev, can you hear me? The Steelers made a mistake and they did him wrong.:07—Let’s give credit where credit is due. The Philadelphia Eagles truly didn’t live in their fears and played the game to win, and not to not lose. Coach Peterson and quarterback Nick Foles stepped into the spotlight and never got blinded by the light.:06—I’m truly glad that Brady and Belichick didn’t get their sixth Super Bowl win to tie the Steelers for the most in NFL history, but I am a little confused as to why it took them an entire half to find Gronkowski. The difference was clear when they did.JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE’S HALFTIME PERFORMANCE…YAY OR NAY?:05—Justin Timberlake as the halftime show? Well, let’s put it this way, he may have thrown a tribute for “Prince,” but trust me, he’s no Prince. Tribute or not, halftime was weak. Man, where’s Bruno Mars when you need him?:04—Anybody paying a million dollars to show those commercials last night need to be slapped a million times with a two dollar bill. Other than the innocent babies and the now openly-open Manning and Beckham commercial, there were no big winners. (Listen Madison Avenue, take it from me. Stick with dogs, Budweiser and Clydesdales if you want a winner.):03—As well as he played at the Bowl, will Nick Foles be the Eagles starting QB next year?  No. If his leg is good, Carson Wentz will get his job back and you can take that to the bank.:02—The Western PA Pittsburgh Basketball Club Hall of Fame Inductions was a slam dunk.

Who is Borussia Dortmund’s new signing Ousmane Dembele?

first_img HOW DOES HE PLAY?  CEST Those numbers have allowed ‘Dembouz’ to become a regular in France’s junior teams. He’s played for the U17 team since 2013 and has caught the attention of the likes of Benfica, Porto and Red Bull Salzburg, all of whom tried to sign him last summer.  Rennes, though, managed to hold on to the player with the promise of a professional contract and minutes in Philippe Montanier’s first team. And Montanier used him on November 13 of last year against Angera. Since that day, Dembele has become more and more regular in the team and since Corbis replaced Montanier as manager, his growth has been even more impressive. His most impressive performance came in March, when he scored a hat-trick against Nantes with Barça’s scouts in the stands.  Miki Soria Born in Vernon, France, Dembele developed at Evreux, before moving to Rennes as a 13-year-old. There, he has grown as a player, taking gigantic steps forward and becoming the jewel of the club’s academy. Last season, at just 17, he scored 13 goals in the 18 games he played for the club’s B team in the fifth tier of French football.  Few times has a player passed from anonymity to fame so quickly. In hardly 20 matches as a professional footballer, Ousmane Dembele has become, completely on merit, one of the stars to follow in Ligue 1 thanks to the nine goals and three assists since his debut.  Those who have seen Dembele regularly say he has a little bit of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar about him. He has the Portuguese’s speed and a similar finishing style. From the Brazilian, he has the ability to beat a man with ease. Data to hand, he now has the most dribbles in Europe’s top five leagues – ahead of Hatem Ben Arfa and Neymar. His 12 goals, meanwhile, situate him as the top scorer of players under the age of 21, too, with one more than Sporting’s Paraguay forward Tony Sanabria.  12/05/2016 Upd. at 16:03 We’re talking about a left-footed player, but one that can play on either flank. If he’s on the right, he’ll look to cut in on his left and shoot, akin to the style of Arjen Robben. In any case, his versatility in attack is a quality to keep in mind. He has a lot of potential, but he needs a lot of minutes to consolidate his play and to continue learning.. For the moment he is doing that at Rennes. Next season? Borussia Dortmund.last_img read more

Marseille suspend Patrice Evra after kick ‘aimed at fan’

first_imgMarseille have suspended Patrice Evra after the footballer aimed a kick at the head of one of the French club’s supporters ahead of a Europa League match in Portugal.The club took action after UEFA confirmed it had opened disciplinary proceedings against the former Manchester United player.“Jacques-Henri Eyraud, president of Marseille, met Patrice Evra today and informed him of his lay-off with immediate effect and a summons to an interview prior to a possible disciplinary sanction,” a statement from the French club said.Evra, who is named as a substitute for OM’s fixture away to Vitoria, lashed out at the fan in a heated confrontation ahead of the match on Thursday. He was then ushered away by a team-mate.Further to UEFA investigation’s into Evra, the governing body has charged Marseille with breaches of Article 16 of its disciplinary regulations: namely the “field invasion by supporters, the setting-off of fireworks and acts of damages.”Evra joined Marseille from Juventus in January, but has made just two appearances for the club in all competitions this season. On Friday UEFA announced the 36-year-old would miss “at least one match”, with the organisation’s disciplinary body set to discuss his case at its next meeting on November 10.Marseille added there had been “unacceptable behaviour” from some fans who subjected Evra and his team-mates to “hateful attacks” but said: “As a professional and experienced player, Patrice Evra could not respond in such an inappropriate way.”The former Manchester United player aimed a kick at a supporter PAEvra is almost certain to face a more severe sanction from UEFA following scenes reminiscent of Eric Cantona’s kung-fu kick at Selhurst Park in 1995.Video footage showed Evra aiming the kick at the Marseille fan as visiting players and supporters, who had seemingly scaled barriers to reach the advertising hoardings at the Estadio D Afonso Henriques in Guimaraes, confronted each other at the side of the pitch.last_img read more

Photo of the Week: Sunset Over Chelsea State Game Area Four Mile Lake

first_imgThe night was cool and the dragonflies plentiful. The golden light at the end of the day cast a beautiful glow on the honey-brown black-masked Cedar Waxwings perched in the branches nearby.But the beauty of the evening was captured in the stunning sunset over Four Mile Lake in Chelsea, Michigan last night.The yellow of the sky, dramatic gray and white contrasting clouds, and dark outlined trees were a mirror reflection in the water. With the last rays of sunlight streaming through the clouds, it was next to impossible to tell where water ended and land and sky started.
