Petition race for South Dearborn renovation begins

first_imgAURORA, Ind. — South Dearborn’s petition race begins today.The school district proposed a $9.76 million upgrade and renovation project at the high school, that would build a new multi-purpose building, add an artificial turf football field, expand and updated the school auditorium, add a window between the gym and the cafeteria, and replace floors and ceiling tiles.The project would require a tax increase, and some taxpayers had started a petition to block the project.The board voted last month to proceed with the project, but since the petition had enough signatures, the vote prompted a petition and remonstrance process.Each side must now obtain signatures on petitions, and at the end of 30 days, the side with the most signatures will prevail.Forms can be picked up at the Dearborn County Clerks Office.last_img read more

Preparations for 51st Annual Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb underway

first_imgBy Huwmanbeing [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsNewport, In. — The 51st Annual Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb is scheduled for October 5, 6 & 7 as the Newport Lions Club prepares for the annual gathering of antique auto enthusiasts. Hoping to stage another record-setting festival, the Lions will hold the event over the famous 1800-foot-long, 140-foot-high Newport Hill, once a proving ground for early automobile designs.Nearly 300 cars are expected to compete in 31 classes in timed runs over the hill, while some 500 show cars, street rods and street machines are judged alongside classic antique vehicles in nine classes for trophies. Newest additions to the competition are three antique motorcycle classes, limited to side-valve models 1953 and older and grouped by engine displacement.Among early registered competitors is a very rare 1919 Stanley Steamer Touring Car. The last Stanley to run the hill a few years back was driven by company founder E.F. Stanley’s grand-daughter.Practice runs will be held from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday; and from 8 to 10 a.m. Sunday. Opening ceremonies will begin at 10:30 a.m. Sunday with competition runs starting at 11 a.m.This year’s the festival weekend will begin Friday morning, October 5 as the Flea Market and food concession stands will open all day. That night will feature the “Cruise At The Bottom” cruise-in and a street dance. Also featured Friday will be the annual Gospel Music Jamboree at the Newport Methodist Church, featuring Southern Gospel recording artists The Lesters from St. Louis, Missouri.With the opening of the hill for practice runs at 8 a.m. Saturday, some 300 Flea Market and Swap Meet booths will be open for business, as well as numerous food concessions around the courthouse square. The Lions Club’s pork barbeque will also begin serving Saturday’s helping of hogs cooked for the annual feed. The Big Wheel Races for kids age 3-8 will also be held at noon Saturday, with registration at 11:30 a.m. A Pretty Baby Contest will also be judged at 2 p.m., with prizes presented to the winners following the close of practice runs. Shortly afterward, the annual parade will wind its way through the streets of Newport.The relocation of the Collector Car and Automobilia Auction last year proved successful and it will be held on the Main Street Starting Line following the parade. “Dancing With The Cars, a Cruise-In and Street Dance are scheduled for Saturday evening and the day will be capped off with a huge fireworks display at dusk.The festival will conclude with a giant prize drawing Sunday afternoon, including the Lions Club’s restored raffle vehicle, a 1939 Buick Series 40 Special four-door sedan with the famed Buick Straight-Eight power plant.Special edition souvenirs will be available, including wool pennants, similar to ones sold at the first Lions Club Hill Climb 51 years ago; 2019 Hill Climb photo calendars with more than 100 pictures of cars and festivities; and limited edition steel license plates. Competition drivers will receive a special edition collector hat pin and extras will also be for sale, along with shirts, hats and sweatshirts. Copies of two official history books on the Hill Climb, covering the first Newport Hill Climb in 1909 until today, will be on sale throughout the weekend, along with various other souvenir offerings.The Newport Hill Climb likely began as an “innocent” challenge between two owners of those new-fangled automobiles. While early autos had trouble making it up the crest of the hill, soon topping the 140-foot plus hilltop became common, but still a great struggle on the early gasoline engines. Then it wasn’t just enough to top the hill; you had to be the fastest to climb it.The first Hill Climb was held in 1909 and organized by the businessmen of Newport as a way to capitalize on the interest in climbing the hill. Hill Climbing contests were becoming more common place, and by 1915 the “newness” had worn off, and board-track and other circular racing forms were becoming more popular. The event was rekindled as an antique auto hill climb in the 1960’s and the Lions Club took over sponsorship in 1968.Lions Clubs are an international service organization, which sponsor such projects as the Leader Dog School for the Blind in Rochester, Michigan, cancer research and treatment facilities at the Indiana University Medical Center, eye glass and hearing aid recycling projects, and diabetes awareness programs. Local Lions Clubs also support various other groups and organizations in their home communities.More information on the Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb is available from the Newport Lions Club, Box 398, Newport, IN, 47966, or by calling 765-492-4220.

Wijnaldum’s camp awaits Liverpool on new contract

first_img That means that the Thiago Alcantara speculation is coming from the Bayern Munich man’s camp. TEAMtalk told you last month that Klopp was not interested in a move for Thiago, but the talk from Germany has been non-stop. However, if the Wijnaldum situation does not change, then so might Klopp’s plans. read also:Klopp, Solskjaer made last-minute attempt to sign Osimhen The Dutch midfielder has entered the final 12 months or his deal and there have been no sign of talks over an extension. That in itself is strange for a club whose transfer negotiations have been pretty flawless over the last few years. Gini Wijnaldum’s camp are still waiting for Liverpool to open talks about a new contract at Liverpool, according to Sky Sports. The midfield powerhouse made 35 Premier League starts, scoring four times as the Reds marched to their first top-flight title in 30 years. Although failing to trouble the headline writers and plaudits, Wijnaldum has been integral to Liverpool’s title success. And he is believed to be well-liked by boss Jurgen Klopp after he arrived from Newcastle for £25million in the summer of 2016. In fact, he was one of Klopp’s first significant signings in the summer of 2016. There’s no way that Klopp could replace the six-goal star for that sort of money and, as per the source, they are not actively looking to add to their midfield options.Advertisement Promoted Content7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table Top7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually TrueCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?8 Weird Facts About Coffee That Will Surprise You10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Playing Games For Hours Can Do This To Your Body FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… last_img read more

Baines: We have to stay with pack

first_img Midfielder James McCarthy will have to tread carefully in the fixture as a booking will rule him out of the Merseyside derby later this month as he will have accumulated five cautions. “It’s a tough place to go and we need to make amends. It’s not going to be easy,” said McCarthy. “They are looking to get a new manager and improve all the time but we will have a right go at it. “Crystal Palace will come at us and we will work on that this week but we need to go there and try to get three points on the board.” While a point against fellow top-four rivals Tottenham on Sunday was creditable, a victory would have lifted the Toffees into second place in the Barclays Premier League. The England left-back knows they need to make the most of home games in particular, such is their record at Goodison Park, but they cannot drop too many points elsewhere if they are to remain in touch with those teams vying for Champions League qualification. Press Association Roberto Martinez’s side are currently seventh but only a point behind second-placed Chelsea. “Hopefully we can start winning a few more,” Baines said. “It is quite congested in the top six or seven and a win can do a lot for you. “We have to stay with the pack and keep winning games.” Everton have not lost at Goodison in the league since December 30 and Baines feels that is where they can get the most value from their games. “I think we have to make it so that other people don’t enjoy coming here,” he told everton tv. “If Tottenham and Chelsea are not getting any results from us here then it will make other teams think twice about how they approach the game.” Next up, however, is a trip to bottom side Crystal Palace, currently without a manager after the departure of Ian Holloway. Everton defender Leighton Baines admits they cannot afford to let things slip after a good start to the season.last_img read more

FIFA agree massive $1.5 billion COVID-19 relief plan

first_imgBy Simon Evans(REUTERS) – FIFA announced on Thursday that it had agreed a $1.5 billion relief plan to help deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global game.FIFA’s plan means world soccer’s governing body will dip into its reserves to provide national federations with a number of grants and interest-free loans to cope with budget hits.FIFA had already provided the immediate release of all funds from its ‘Forward’ projects and given the green light for such grants to be used for COVID-19 relief plans — with a minimum of 50% of released funds to be allocated to women’s football.The third stage of the plans, unanimously backed by the FIFA Council on Thursday, allows for a ‘universal solidarity grant’ of $1 million dollars to all national associations with an additional $500,000 specifically for women’s football. Each regional confederation will receive a grant of $2 million.FA’s will be able to apply for loans, amounting to up to 35% of their audited, annual revenues up to a maximum of $5 million with confederations able to request up to $4 million.“Both grants and loans can be directed by member associations to the wider football community in their respective territories, including clubs, players, leagues, or others that have been affected by COVID,” said FIFA president Gianni Infantino. Infantino added that there would be strict controls on the use of funds, audit requirements, as well as clear loan repayment conditions.Olli Rehn, the deputy chairman of the FIFA Governance Committee, who is Governor of the Bank of Finland and a member of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank, will head a committee set up to administer the funds.The council also backed changes to the calendar to support confederations’ desires to extend international breaks to allow for fixture congestion and rearranged matches. Infantino said no decision has yet to be taken on the rescheduling of the new Club World Cup tournament which has been postponed from July 2021 due to the postponement of Euro 2020 and the Copa America.The council also gave the green light to a new pan-Arab tournament to be played in 2021 in Qatar as a ‘test event’ for the 2022 World Cup.The invitational competition will be contested by Arab nations from Africa and Asia and feature home-based players only. The tournament will be held in from 1-18 December 2021 and be run by Qatar’s World Cup organising committee.last_img read more
