Angels’ deal for Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling reportedly falls through

first_imgIn the big picture, the Dodgers still need to reduce some salary if they are to stay under the luxury tax threshold after taking on the salaries of Betts and Price. Pederson is set to make $7.75 million after losing his arbitration case, and Stripling will make $2.1 million. That’s nearly $10 million for players the Dodgers no longer need.They have no apparent place for Pederson to play with an outfield of Betts, Cody Bellinger and A.J. Pollock. Chris Taylor and Kiké Hernandez, who can both play the infield as well, also crowd their outfield. Stripling had become more of a swingman than a starter in the Dodgers’ stacked rotation.While that all pointed to the deal still making sense for the Dodgers, there was one theory floated that Angels owner Arte Moreno was frustrated by the delay and pulled out of the deal.Related Articles Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error After the stunning reversal, the Angels were back to where things stood a week ago, with Brian Goodwin as their right fielder until highly regarded prospect Jo Adell is ready.Their rotation depth chart still includes Dylan Bundy, Griffin Canning, Andrew Heaney, Shohei Ohtani and Julio Teheran, with a secondary group including Jaime Barría, Dillon Peters, Felix Peña, Patrick Sandoval and José Suarez. Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter center_img The Angels had been set to trade infielder Luís Rengifo, who now has no apparent spot with the addition of Anthony Rendon to the infield. They were also reportedly going to acquire outfield prospect Andy Pages from the Dodgers. At least one other prospect was expected to go to the Dodgers in the reported agreement. Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone After the Angels waited for days on the drama surrounding the Dodgers’ pursuit of Mookie Betts, the deal they believed they had struck might not be happening at all.The Angels had reportedly agreed to get slugging outfielder Joc Pederson and starter Ross Stripling from the Dodgers after both players were rendered surplus once the Dodgers got Betts and David Price from the Boston Red Sox.However, amid reports of the Dodgers getting Betts and Price in a reconfigured deal on Sunday, there were multiple reports that the Dodgers were no longer trading Pederson and Stripling to the Angels.As of Sunday night, it was unclear whether the deal was dead entirely, or just in need of changes in light of the altered Betts deal.last_img read more

Local Cleaning Company Wants Your Dust

first_imgTelescoping dusting polesGreat for tall ceilings, skylights and anything really high up Submitted by Drew Freemantle for Maid PerfectMaid Perfect’s tools of the trade to keep your house dust free.“To dust or not to dust, that is the question”. Dusting can become a second priority because of our busy lives in today’s society.  It can become challenging sometimes to just get the dishes done and pick up around the house. Yet we remain frustrated because our home is not as clean as we would really like it to be, if we only had the time. So dusting is thrown by the wayside along with a whole other list of things we would like to do.What is dust?There are two kinds of dust, indoor and outdoor . Outdoor dust contains just about anything that can be broken down into small bits and transported through the air such as pollen, allergens, sand, dirt and mold spores. Indoor dust contains lint from rugs, pet dander, hair and other household items. Dust gives modern pollutants something to stick to and the average house can accumulate up to 40lbs of dust per year. So dusting is good for your health and also makes your home look great.What are the tools of the trade?There are many different  varieties of dusting devices you can use. Here are a few that Maid Perfect uses. Swiffers (short & long)Designed to attract dust, great for hard to reach areas Microfiber clothesDesigned to hold large amounts of dust, washable, great for general dusting. Facebook21Tweet0Pin0center_img Dusting ToolBenefits Multi-surface cleanersWork well for caked on dust Is there a correct method for dusting?At Maid Perfect we recommend to chose the proper tool for the job and dust left to right, top to bottom.

Tears, Smiles, Mark Marines’ Homecoming

first_img“I know he’s coming home and he’s here and he’s safe. I can hold him,” said Debbie Foley, Howell, whose smile said it all, as she anxiously awaited the return of her son, Lance Corporal Russell Peter Surdi Jr.Foley, who waited with many family members, said Surdi had been wounded while serving in Afghanistan and had been awarded the Purple Heart. He turned 23 while on deployment. But “He’s OK,” she quickly added.Latisha Robinson, who lives in Mullica Hills, in South Jersey, said the welcome home gathering was “the complete opposite,” of the atmosphere when her husband, Sergeant Markee Robinson left for his deployment.“When he’s coming home, you’re happy because you don’t have to worry about the stress.”When her husband returned, from what was his second tour, Latisha said she would, “love him, tell him I missed him,” and tell him he’s “staying home this time.”The battalion and Leatherneck, where they were responsible for providing transportation for personnel and materiel, often through strife-ridden areas and some real hot spots laden with improvised explosive devises (IEDs), said Lt. Col. Peter Mahoney, the battalion’s inspector instructor.When the bus arrived, with a police escort, and the Marines stepped off, the cheers were deafening.“It was a tough time. I was like, ‘Oh, my God, what’s going to happen?’” said Rahway resident Luciana Pires, as she waited for her son, Corporal Valter Pires.Valter said he was equally happy to be home and had immediate plans. “I’m going to eat some Portuguese food and ride my motor- cycle around the block,” he said.When Andrea Kunak finally saw her son, Sergeant John T. Sharkey, she said, “I don’t have the words to express myself.”Sharkey’s grandmother,  Martha Szaro said, “I’m so happy he’s home,” as it was his third tour.Szaro’s granddaughter and the granddaughter’s husband have also served in com- bat, with the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division. “We got a lot of them,” serving, she said of her family. “I’m proud. I’m proud of them all.”When Surdi was finished hugging and kissing and being hugged and kissed he said, “It feels amazing, it really does.”His next mission was, “go have a beer,” he said.“I can sleep and not worry now,” with her son home safely, Foley said. But then she thought for a moment and added, “except for all the sons and daughters still over there.” Families and friends of returning Marines await their arrival at the Red Bank Reserve Center.

‘Tis The Season To Blow Leaves

first_imgBy Jennifer Driscoll |With falling autumn leaves also comes the roar of leaf blowers. Despised by many with sensitive ears, leaf blowers have become regulated and even banned in various towns. But why do they make so much noise?Denis Mitchell, a diesel mechanics teacher at the Monmouth County Vocational School District, said a combination of factors is to blame for the noise leaf blowers produce. Most leaf blowers use 2-stroke engines which have to run at very high revolutions per minute (rpms) in order to reach combustion. This fast rotation makes the engines very loud. Because they are air-cooled, the engines have very thin walls, meaning they cannot easily absorb this sound.Leaf blowers work using a motor that powers a high speed fan. As the blades turn, the fan pulls in outside air from side vents and spins it, forcing it through the opening at the front of the blower. The force created by rotating the air causes it to come out of the tube at extremely high speeds. Depending on the type of blower, the air speed can range from 50–250 mph.Whether the leaf blower is powered using electricity or gasoline also affects the amount of noise produced. The wind speed of gasoline blowers is much higher, exceeding 150 mph, while the speed of electric blowers generally ranges from 50–100 mph. Because of this, gasoline powered blowers are much more powerful, but also produce much more noise.And finally, the high rates of speed of the motors also means a leaf blower’s exhaust system adds to the noise.Whether you find them indispensable or wish everyone just used a rake, it can be helpful to know the leaf blower regulations in your area. Here are the regulations for the Two River area towns:Atlantic HighlandsCurrently there are no regulations on leaf blower use.Colts NeckCurrently there are no regulations on leaf blower use.Fair Haven Leaf blowers can be used from 8 a.m. to sunset on weekdays, and from 9 a.m. to sunset on weekends.HighlandsLeaf blowers can be used from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekends and legal holidays.

Residents Hear Latest On White Street Parking Plans

first_img“I think it’s an attractive area for them to want to come in, but we do plan on at least incorporating the conduit to have it run so that in the event if we can’t get the charging stations now, we at least have the ability to hook up in the future,” said Neumann. “But it’s definitely something we’re looking to incorporate.” There will be 10 additional parking spaces in total between on-street parking and lot spaces, bringing the total to 314 spaces. The Marlboro-based Lima Charlie Construction vendor has been awarded a contract to do the work. COURTESY CME ASSOCIATES Red Bank officials are planning to upgrade White Street and its adjoining parking lot in the next few months. The goal is to begin construction in July and complete both projects by November. By Allison Perrine Councilman Ed Zipprich asked questions about potential electric charging stations in the White Street lot. According to Neumann, she is working on having those stations in the parking lot and is reaching out to vendors to see if it is feasible. “When we took a look atthe parking lot, we lookedat how best to lay it out toget not only the best yieldbut also the best circulationfrom the standpoint of bothvehicles and pedestrians,”said Neumann. The article originally appeared in the May 14 – 20, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. The plan is to transform the existing on-street parking to angled parking with 12 additional spaces and to revamp the adjoining public parking lot to make it safer for pedestrians and motorists. Business administrator Ziad Shehady described the location as “one of the most popular and well-visited parking lots” in Red Bank. The idea to improve White Street parking is not new. The mayor and council obtained a grant from the state Department of Transportation last year to partially fund White Street improvements. The parking lot improvements, however, are not covered by the grant and will be funded entirely by revenue from the borough’s parking utility. George Lyristis, a local restaurateur who owns the nearby Teak Asian Fusion, echoed a similar sentiment during public comment. He feels the White Street entrance to the lot is too close to Maple Avenue. When Count Basie is up and running and lets people out, he feels it will be congested. center_img “Generally speaking, the borough wants to take advantage of the downtime within the confines of the borough due to the pandemic to keep construction moving forward so that it doesn’t negatively impact the residents and the business community when some of the regulations ease up,” said Shehady. The project is not just about increasing capacity, Shehady said. It’s about safety as well. In 2017, there were about 25 incidents involving motorists and/or pedestrians on White Street and in its parking lot. In 2018, that number reached 29. In 2019, it was 35. The lot has fallen into “quite a bit of disrepair” over the years, said Shehady. It is not ADA compliant in parking stall size or access aisle width standards, said borough engineer Laura Neumann. The traffic flow through the lot is not well defined. It does not meet the minimum requirement of ADA parking stalls. Lighting does not meet current standards, she added. Resident Andre Bondi said that while he understands the goal of maximizing the safety within the parking lot, he has concerns about the impact it will have on traffic movement outside of the lot. He particularly took issue with the entrances and exits of the lot being two-way on the White Street side. “I’m concerned about the risk of a collision, people going out especially at the Maple Avenue end,” he said. “If someone is coming down Maple Avenue from Water Street rather fast … there’s a risk of collision with somebody coming out” of the parking lot. “We hope by reducing theconflict points for traffic onthe parking lot, with all theturns and the stops, that thiswill hopefully create a safersituation,” said Shehady. RED BANK – Residents got a look at the borough’s latest proposal to improve White Street and its public parking lot Tuesday, May 5, during a virtual public input session. The project proposes two access points from White Street to promote a free-flow of traffic. A walkway area is proposed for the lot’s center island to safely allow pedestrians to get to the crosswalk areas. Drainage mechanisms will be implemented to make way for less impervious coverage. Parking stalls in the lot will be updated to 9-feet by 18-feet. Over 30 residents tuned into the Zoom meeting May 5. Most residents who spoke out seemed to have positive reactions to the plan overall, but with some concerns regarding safety. last_img read more
