Grambling opens museum to honor ‘Coach Rob’

first_imgGRAMBLING, La. (AP)—Grambling State’s permanent tribute to longtime football coach Eddie Robinson is ready to be unveiled. An 18,000-square-foot museum honoring the coach, who died in 2007, will open on the Grambling campus Saturday.The building will house many of the awards, plaques and honors Robinson received during his 57-year tenure. The museum also will showcase more than 200 players Robinson coached who went on to pro careers, including Redskins quarterback Doug Williams, who was Super Bowl MVP in 1988. “This all came out of a promise I made Rob before he died,” said Wilbert Ellis, who coached the Grambling baseball team for 43 years and was Robinson’s longtime friend. “I told him we’d get this done, but sometime even I wondered how.”A number of dignitaries, including U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, as well as Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and new Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, will be on hand for the official opening.Robinson’s 408 career victories are second among coaches at any level.“You know,” Ellis said, “he walked with presidents and kings, but he was always a humble man. He always saw himself as a football coach and a proud American. I think this museum shows that.” GUEST SPEAKER —Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was the guest speaker at the dedication banquet Feb. 12. He also gave a few words at the ribbon-cutting Feb. 13. last_img read more

JCP&L Faulty Wire Causes Red Bank Power Outage

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – Amy Hanbury, general manager of DoubleTake consignment boutique, talking about the loud bangs, smoke and flames on Broad Street that resulted in the loss of power and business for some on Sunday afternoon, describing it as “crazy.”“The worst part was the smoke,” Hanbury said, noting how it billowed out of the contained belowground compartments on the sidewalks. Adding to the confusion, police blocked off the stretch of Broad Street in the area of St. James Roman Catholic Church from pedestrians and prevented Hanbury, employees and customers from leaving or entering the 97 Broad St. shop. “So, it was time to go,” and Hanbury closed the shop early.At about 3:10 p.m. on Sunday, Jersey Central Power and Light (JCP&L) received the first call about disruption in service that ultimately affected 260 Red Bank area customers, according to Ron Morano, a JCP&L spokesman.“We had a crew respond by 3:30 (p.m.),” Morano said. And the crew found that a secondary wire located in what Morano called a “hand-hole” (less than 4-feet deep that holds electrical wires), on the sidewalk in the Broad Street/Canal Street area, in the immediate proximity of Red Bank Catholic High School, had experienced a fault.A secondary wire is one that feeds into a service point and provides electric to individual customers, he explained.The fault “resulted in that wire burning,” causing smoke in that hand-hole and another one in the area, Morano said.The electric company has not determined what caused the fault and is still investigating. Power was restored to all but 10 customers by approximately 9:30 p.m. Crews worked through Sunday night and the remaining 10 customers had their power restored by 6 a.m., Monday, Morano said.The hand-holes contain only wires and no other equipment was damaged, Morano said.Police detoured traffic in the area and closed the sidewalks to pedestrians for approximately 90 minutes, along with evacuating St. James Roman Catholic Church and one Broad Street business, said Police Chief Darren McConnell.There were no injuries and no property damage with the exception to JCP&L’s belowground pit, McConnell said.While aboveground equipment, such as downed wires and malfunctioning transformers can be regular occurrences, “I’ve never seen anything like it before,” with electric underground equipment malfunctioning, McConnell observed. “But JCP&L was there quickly and were able to isolate the outages to a small area.”Marie Ventralla, general manager of oneblowdrybar salon, 116 Broad St., was the business that had to be evacuated. She said there were a series of six explosions, flames and “a lot of smoke,” from the holes, which unnerved employees and customers. “It was kind of wild,” she observed, and led to closing the salon for the day and disappointing clients with appointments.“It was weird. The manhole cover blew,” and flames were visible, said Harrison Bern, the manager on duty at the time at Earth Pizza restaurant, 95 Broad St.“I’m not going to argue the definition of ‘explosion,’ ” Morano said, but conceded, “granted, when the fault occurred there was probably some type of loud noise, “and “there very well could have been a flame.”That being said, Morano insisted, “Our equipment did not explode.”Explosion or not Sunday’s event led school officials to close Red Bank Catholic and St. James Elementary school on Monday and cancel early Mass services on Monday, as a precaution, even though the schools and church didn’t lose power, according to Red Bank Catholic’s school office.last_img read more

Half-time: Chelsea 0 Man City 0

first_imgNew manager Rafael Benitez was barracked by disgruntled Chelsea fans as he took charge of his first game.It has been an emotion-charged afternoon at Stamford Bridge following the sad news that legendary ex-Blues boss Dave Sexton died today.Benitez, unpopular among Chelsea fans from his time at Liverpool, was greeted by jeers before a rousing minute’s applause for Sexton, who led the club to their 1970 FA Cup triumph and the European Cup Winners’ Cup the following year.And on 16 minutes the home crowd demonstrated their feelings by chanting the name of sacked manager Roberto Di Matteo, who wore the number 16 shirt during his time as a player at Chelsea.On the pitch, the first half produced little of note before Sergio Aguero missed a great chance to put City ahead when he headed straight at keeper Petr Cech.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Rupert Murdoch’s The Daily Finally Hits Newsstands (Or Rather, iPads)

first_imgaudrey watters After much anticipation, Rupert Murdoch’s latest media project, The Daily, finally held its launch event today in New York City. Originally scheduled for January 19, the event was delayed due to the announcement that Steve Jobs was taking a medical leave of absence. The participation from the Apple CEO was important as The Daily is pegged as an iPad-only newspaper, and the new product demonstrates both the “future of the newspaper” as envisioned by Murdoch’s News Corp and “the future of subscriptions” as envisioned by Apple.Rupert Murdoch unveiled The Daily today with a speech full of promise, arguing that new times call for new journalism. Murdoch argued that “the iPad demands we completely reimagine our craft.”It’s about the craft, but it’s also about the bottom-line as newspaper and magazines have struggled – both on and offline. “We must make news editing and news gathering viable again,” said Murdoch. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#New Media#news#web Related Posts The Daily: Price and ContentThe Daily issues will be available to subscribers for 99 cents a week via iTunes, as part of a new subscription service that will give those users instant access to new issues – that is, your new issue arrives on your iPad “doorstep” without your having to connect to iTunes to update.The Daily will contain over 100 pages of stories that cover the gamut of news, life, opinion, entertainment, sports, and the obligatory crossword puzzle. The content will blend text, video, and audio, with a small selection of the stories read aloud. While the content will update daily, there will be the opportunity for the service to update with breaking news as well.Contrary to some of the early rumors about The Daily, the new publication is “not an island.” You’ll be able to share the stories – via Twitter, Facebook and email. But content won’t just be pushed out to the Web. The Dailiy will pull it in as well, with certain Twitter feeds providing content.The Future of Newspapers or a Refresh of a “Legacy Brand”Murdoch argued this morning that changes to online media demanded more than something a “legacy brand” could provide. To that end, News Corp has thrown a substantial amount of resources at the project, including a reported $30 million investment from Murdoch himself.Some of those resources will go to pay for staff. In preparation for this new endeavor, The Daily has built a specific team, hiring some 100 journalists – some well-known names and some newcomers – who will write its original content.Murdoch says the company’s cost are about “half a million dollars a week.” And with a subscription cost of 99 cents a week, you can do some preliminary math there to see the subscriber benchmark The Daily may be aiming for. At 99 cents a week, The Daily will likely find a lot of new subscribers today. But it remains to be seen if its journalism and its user experience will keep readers coming back.The app is set to become available in the iTunes store at 12 noon EST today.

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi: We controlled Inter Milanby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveLazio boss Simone Inzaghi insists they didn’t deserve defeat to Inter Milan on Wednesday night.Danilo D’Ambrosio’s header proved the winner, with Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic outstanding.“We did well in the first half and the only thing we really got wrong was not scoring one of our many chances,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.“I don’t remember Thomas Strakosha making any saves in the first half and we had three or four big scoring opportunities. There are regrets, because not everyone comes to San Siro and controls the play like this.“Naturally, in the final 20 minutes we got a bit stretched out and allowed some Inter counter-attacks. We should’ve been more determined in front of goal, but I cannot complain about the overall approach.“We are on the right path and emerge with heads held high, albeit with zero points. We’re talking about Inter, they are top of the table and won every game so far, but in terms of performance and quality of football, Lazio did better this evening.” last_img read more
