Atlantic Highlands and County Mull Traffic Fixes

first_imgBy John Burton |ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS — A resident-drafted plan intended to offer some traffic and parking relief for the borough’s First Avenue doesn’t have county officials’ support.“I’d say the plan would not gain county approval at this point,” said borough administrator Adam Hubeny.First Avenue, which is the borough’s main business thoroughfare, is a county roadway and comes under the county purview.Hubeny, Mayor Rhonda “Randi” Le Grice and Police Chief Jerry Vasto joined county engineers and representatives from the county Public Works Department earlier this month to discuss traffic, pedestrian and vehicular safety issues for the borough, particularly those facing the borough’s commercial district. During conversations with county representatives, the “loop proposal,” as it’s become known locally, came up. However, Le Grice acknowledged, county engineers rejected the proposal because the engineers felt it wasn’t in compliance with the county standards. “And the county found many flaws in the plan,” Hubeny acknowledged.Borough resident Mark Fisher undertook looking into the issue that has been increasingly of concern to borough officials: namely tackling traffic and insufficient parking along First Avenue.Fisher drew up a series of plans and accompanying PowerPoint presentations that involved making a portion of First Avenue one way moving east toward the municipal harbor and Seastreak commuter ferry dock. To compensate for that, Fisher’s plan would create a loop, having traffic on a portion of Hennessey Boulevard, a parallel street just north of First Avenue, flow one way in the opposite, westerly direction.In addition to the new traffic pattern, Fisher’s plan called for angling parking spaces on the one-way portions of First and Hennessey to 60 degrees. That, Fisher had said, would allow for additional spaces in the increasingly busy commercial district.The problem for county engineers, though, is that to allow angled parking would require a separate back-out lane, according to county guidelines. “And the street is just not wide enough for that,” Hubeny said.“I just get the feeling there aren’t too many one-way roads that have been approved by them,” Le Grice said, referring to county engineers, who seemed disinclined to allow one-way traffic. When Fisher’s proposal was introduced in May, Le Grice told The Two River Times she was intrigued, especially as it was a relatively easy and inexpensive way to increase parking and address congestion.“It is a big disappointment,” Fisher acknowledged, noting he had asked but wasn’t allowed to participate in the meeting earlier this month.Fisher isn’t a traffic engineer but said he had dedicated approximately 200 hours researching and drafting his plan, saying he wanted to offer some, however marginal, remedy. Like many residents, Fisher had become concerned about traffic safety and the parking spill over into residential neighborhoods adjacent to the commercial district, Le Grice explained.Le Grice said she and others will continue to consider installing angled parking on Hennessey Boulevard, since the borough does “have control over that.”Borough officials and county representatives discussed other traffic calming initiatives as speed humps, flashing pedestrian crossing lights (such as the one recently installed in the vicinity of Portland Pointe housing complex), additional crosswalks, and signage.“However,” Le Grice noted, “we have to come up with the money” for those measures.Monmouth County Engineer Joseph Ettore did not respond to repeated requests for an interview for this story.Le Grice said traffic enforcement will be ramped up to deal with speeding along the roadway. According to Fisher, when he had conducted a series of public presentations on his plan, questionnaires filled out by residents overwhelmingly said speeding and pedestrian safety were leading issues.As for parking, some spaces will be added at the eastern end of First Avenue by restriping in the area of the Hesse building, Le Grice said. But with substantial mixed-use residential and commercial developments moving forward in the district, more businesses coming into the community, and the demands for commuter parking for the ferry, Le Grice said parking is something that will have to be handled if progress is to continue.And that could mean talking about building a garage, the mayor added.“We got to have that conversation,” she said. “We got to look ahead.”This article was first published in the Aug. 24-31, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Vendors call for King to be sacked

first_img… says he is turning “a blind eye” to their stolen goodsScores of vendors gathered outside Stabroek Market in Georgetown on Thursday calling for the removal of Town Clerk Royston King.The vendors are claiming that King is turning a blind eye to their woes, which includes market office staff allegedly stealing their goods. The vendors are alleging that hundreds of thousands of dollars are being stolen by the staff and nothing is being done to address the issue.“Royston King got to go! As well as Mr Gordon! They intend to make we suffer,” and “We making a living. Legally. We ain’t selling drugs!” the angered sellers shouted. President of the Guyana Market Vendors Union (GMVU), Eon Andrews, who participated in the protest, stated that the Brickdam Police Station refused to document the vendors’ report on the matter.“Carter was told that they would not take her statement on the issue. No reason for this was given,” he said.One of the vendors Carol Carter stated that over 300 pairs of slippers were stolen from her stall, which was “locked up” and unattended, for a short while. “I left to go do some business, and come back and see all the slippers that I had hang up right around my stalls, gone. Over $300,000 in goods they thief!” she argued.The vendors believe that they are being targeted because of their position within the Market Association.Acting Deputy Market Clerk, who identified herself as “Ms Smith” stated that she was unaware of what had happened and promised to investigate the matter.This is the second time for the week that calls were made for King to be removed. On Tuesday, Councillor of Constituency Six Andrea Marks convened a silent protest in the midst of the statutory meeting, calling for King to be booted.She had stated that she decided to protest because of the Town Clerk’s decision to have vendors from around Bourda Market, on Robb Street, cease selling without any prior notice.She accused King of lying repeatedly and being “drunk with power”.last_img read more

Guardiola reveals why he left Toure out of Man City side but quiet on Bravo link

first_img1 Yaya Toure was left out of the squads to face Sunderland and Steaua Bucharest Yaya Toure has been left out of Manchester City’s squad for the first leg of their Champions League play-off at Steaua Bucharest.The Ivory Coast midfielder did not even make the bench for the first match of new manager Pep Guardiola’s reign, against Sunderland on Saturday.Now the 33-year-old has not been included in City’s travelling party for Tuesday’s clash in the Romanian capital, a decision by Guardiola which could increase speculation over the one-time team linchpin’s future.Speaking in his pre-match press conference at the Arena Nationala, Guardiola said: “He is a player of us and he is training amazing, but I was not sure if he was going to play, and so I prefer it if he stays there training good in Manchester.“We travelled with two young guys and for the selection I prefer it to be the young guys than Yaya Toure.“I prefer it if he stays there training and focuses on the next game. I have a lot of respect of him, for his career and quality, but for the first days – against Sunderland – we were looking for a more intensive game. That is why he didn’t play, the only reason why.”Guardiola also made headlines prior to Saturday’s 2-1 defeat of Sunderland by leaving long-time City number one Joe Hart on the bench.The Spaniard said that he needed a goalkeeper to play more with his feet and Willy Caballero, having returned for pre-season training ahead of Hart, was more attuned to the requirement.The ruthless decision has also sparked conjecture over the England keeper’s status but Guardiola would not discuss reports the club have lined up a move for Barcelona’s number two Claudio Bravo.The former Barca boss said: “I think it is not the moment to talk about players who are not in Manchester City. They are players for another club. I am not going to talk, one day before one of the most important games of the season, about transfers.”A question on whether City might be open to offers for Hart was cut off by UEFA’s representative but Guardiola said he has been pleased with the player’s response to the situation.He said: “Since I am manager of Manchester City, from the time we were together with Joe, it was perfect – his behaviour, his training sessions, on the pitch, off the pitch. He is a big professional.”last_img read more

‘BISHOP NEVER SAID SORRY TO ME FOR ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF HIS PRIEST UNCLE’

first_imgMichael Connolly – never got an apologyA DONEGAL man who was the victim of abuse by a priest has spoken about how his abuser’s uncle – a Catholic bishop – has still not said ‘sorry’ for the crimes committed against him.Michael Connolly was sexually assaulted in the Diocese of Clogher, part of which covers Donegal.The attacks at the hands of Father Peter Duffy took place in Donagh, Co Fermanagh between 1969 and 1974. His abuse case was not covered in the recent Clogher report on clerical sexual abuse as it fell outside the dates being investigated by the Church’s Safeguarding Board.Now Mr Connolly has told how he met Bishop Duffy, now retired, in 2009 about the abuse at the hands of his uncle.“He listened intently as I give him the graphic details of his uncle’s behaviour,” Michael told Donegal Daily.“He was sympathetic but did not take any steps to establish if there were any other victims in the Donagh or Newtownbutler area that may need help and support. “Neither Bishop Duffy nor any other member of the church has contacted me since to express any concern for me or my family which I find disappointing and uncompassionate. Two other victims have since come forward.“There are very many aspects of the Clogher report which are very positive with regards to child protection but the report is an internal report, bankrolled by the church.“The report does not mention any names of priests nor does it give any indication as to what parishes abuse took place. What is particularly hurtful is that the voices of those who have been abused are not taken into account while compiling this report.“This document exacerbates the agony for victims in their quest to establish the truth. The truth can only be established by a proper state inquiry, carried out under legislation so that those who have been involved in abuse and also those responsible for standing in the way of justice; putting children in danger, can be brought to book for their behaviour.”Michael in association with Amnesty International, is holding a meeting in the Europa hotel Belfast on 29th of May, to launch the campaign for a Northern clerical abuse inquiry. He added: “We would very much appreciate everyone who has been affected by clerical abuse, in Northern Ireland to come along and givers your support. Professionals will be available at the meeting to give guidance and advice.”People can register their interest by signing into www.clericalabuseni.com.The Clogher report found that retired bishop Duffy consistently missed opportunities to prevent clergy from sexually abusing children.The National Board for Safeguarding Children said that in one particular case in Clogher, there was an unacceptable delay in taking action against a priest and removing him from all ministry following receipt of a credible allegation. Another priest suspected of multiple abuse was transferred to another parish and eventually was sent overseas for therapeutic help.He was later extradited to the Republic from the United States but died before he could be brought before the courts.Many of the cases mirrored similar abuse cases in the Raphoe and Derry dioceses.‘BISHOP NEVER SAID SORRY TO ME FOR ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF HIS PRIEST UNCLE’ was last modified: May 2nd, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:’BISHOP NEVER SAID SORRY TO ME ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF HIS PRIEST UNCLE”BISHOP NEVER SAID SORRY TO ME FOR ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF HIS PRIEST UNCLE’last_img read more
