Bournemouth Bath to get facelift

first_img ADDED ATTRACTIONS “We have done a lot of work, but there is still a lot of corrective work left. It is going to be a multiyear project, and we decided to phase the development. This year, we will focus on rehabilitating the pools for the summer so we can have some summer activities. We have finished the conference room, we are doing the amphitheatre, and the bathrooms are almost finished. All this should be finished by September, and by Christmas, we want to finish some other things,” he stated. Meanwhile, Green, who is funding the project singlehandedly, is seeking commitments to ensure the continuous usage of the facility, and he said that the residents have given their word to protect and maintain the complex. “We are seeking a strategic relationship with the Caribbean Maritime Institute, the University of the West Indies, and others for the utility of the pool, and as a feature of our arrangement and relationship with the community, they will have the place to host events,” he added. Green said that in the past, the pool was the only source of income for maintenance of the complex, but he believes that to keep it from returning to a similar state, more than swimming is needed. He added that the upgrade will include attractions such as restaurants, an amphitheatre, a board-walk, and a multipurpose court. “When you look at the investment in the pool and the possible returns, you see why it continued to fail. So we widened the scope to make sure we have sustainable involvement and activities, and we are looking at the three major components, arts, sports and entertainment,” he said. The pools at Bournemouth have been the centre of its history, and Green said that it would continue to play a major part in the facility’s activities. “We look at sports. We have a playing field and a netball court, which can be a multi-purpose court. The pool is very integral because it remains of major infrastructural value. The maintenance cost is very high, but in terms of engaging the youths and developing skills, it’s really a low-cost activity. They just need time, training, and maintenance of the pool,” he said. The former Jamaica Gasolene Retailers Association president said that like many citizens, he was concerned about the facility’s state, with windows shattered, electrical wiring looted, and bathroom facilities destroyed. The complex’s surroundings are also in need of bushing and are littered with faeces. However, after obtaining a lease from the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation earlier this year, Green has done extensive renovation and has set a two-year timeline to complete the project, but he is looking to complete it in phases. MORE CORRECTIVE WORK TO DO Leonard Green, the investor who has undertaken a multimillion-dollar renovation project at the Bournemouth Bath facilities in East Kingston, said a return to the old operational ways is what he describes as a “recipe for failure”. Green revealed plans to redevelop the facility into a multipurpose sports, arts, and entertainment complex, though the pool will remain an integral part of the transformation.last_img read more

Angeles fire protection cut back

first_imgMorgan said the entire Angeles forest – her district stretches from the Santa Clarita Valley to the Antelope Valley – is considered a wildland-urban interface. “(Fire) can go from anywhere in the forest into the adjacent community because of wind events,” she said. “Any community on the forest boundary is considered to be at risk.” Newer communities sheathed in stucco and composite roofs may be better off in the event of a wildfire. While the agency says it is adequately covering the area, if crews are pulled away to fight fires elsewhere, that could strain the force. Two local engines rotated to battle a blaze in Nevada. Morgan said the agency could be more stingy about sharing crews if the local risk is “certain.” “If we determine we need engines on the forest to cover attack needs, we will not let anyone go off the forest,” she said. “We probably will get to that position faster because of the shortfall.” Many municipal agencies, including the Los Angeles city and county fire departments and the Ventura County Fire Department, pay higher wages than the Forest Service, and Morgan said the agency loses many qualified firefighters to its competitors.

In 2004, 39,000 acres burned in the northern area of the Angeles, from Acton and Lake Hughes to Newhall. One hundred-forty firefighters and three 20-person interagency hotshot crews will be on duty. Before 2000, the agency had fewer fire crews and engines in the field, but for the past six years, the resources have been constant. Garwood said the budget has not changed significantly from last year, but the approach to staffing has. To avoid gaping holes in coverage, days worked by adjacent engine companies in the forest will be staggered. In prior years, seven-person crews were at the ready seven days a week, but this year five-person crews will work five days a week, said Cid Morgan, U.S. Forest Service ranger in the Angeles’ Santa Clara/Mojave Rivers district. Many seasonal or apprentice firefighters hired last year will not return this year, Morgan said. If the positions cut this year are not funded in the next couple of years, they could be at risk for permanent elimination. Talks about how to manage the shortfall have been under way since last fall, but Angeles Forest officials did not see the final budget until a couple of months ago. SANTA CLARITA – The U.S. Forest Service is cutting back wildland protection in the Angeles National Forest from seven days a week to five to wring the most from its firefighting buck. The cutbback comes as the county declares today as the start of the fire season. Fifty-six fewer firefighters will man the 28 engines in the Angeles National Forest, and 40 regional “hotshot” crew members will be phased out. “It’s been stressed we need to live within our means … We don’t plan on having a lot of fires this year,” said Don Garwood, deputy fire chief for the Angeles National Forest. “We plan to make the budget stretch to the point it can, and the result is we have chosen not to hire as many people this year.” last_img read more

No.“I think the first people to recognise that will be the people at United.“Jose has all the capabilities, he’s done it, but I don’t think he’s in a place where he feels good at the moment, or United feel good at the moment or the fans at the moment.” Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT Man United transfer news live: Haaland ‘wants a change’, two players off in January England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won gameday cracker Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? boost IN DEMAND possible standings silverware center_img Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade 1 Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Jose Mourinho has issued a stark warning to Manchester United chiefs with just four days until the transfer window closes.The Red Devils manager has cautioned the club that they could be in for a “difficult season” if they don’t make the necessary signings in the coming days.
