5 Vermont historic buildings to get $425,000 for village restoration

first_imgUS Senator Patrick Leahy and the Preservation Trust of Vermont announced that five historic downtown buildings will receive federal funds to help spur village redevelopment.  Historic buildings in Putney, Readsboro, Poultney, Richmond and Shoreham will get restoration work using a $425,000 federal grant Leahy secured for the Preservation Trust of Vermont s Village Revitalization Initiative. These historic buildings are at the very heart of the identity and economy of our communities, said Leahy.  These grants do more than ensure the stability and aesthetics of a building, they also open these buildings to the public and help to keep our villages healthy.”Our Village Revitalization Initiative has now provided significant funding for 25 community-based  projects across Vermont,” said Paul Bruhn, executive director of the Preservation Trust of Vermont.  “Each of these projects is a key piece in each community’s effort to build a successful village center.  We’re most grateful that Senator Leahy is so committed to this effort.”Since 2005, Leahy has secured more than $2 million in federal funds to help rehabilitate more than 25 buildings across the state of Vermont, creating new indoor public spaces and reopening long-shuttered public spaces to Vermonters.  The Vermont Housing and Conservation Board assists in the administration of these grants.Putney General Store – $100,000.  Funding will be used by the town of Putney and the Putney Historical Society to continue restoration of the general store destroyed by fire in May of 2008.  CONTACT:  Lyssa Papazian (802) 387-2878.Readsboro Bullock’s Store – $100,000.  Funding will be used to acquire and begin rehab on the 1880 s era Bullock building in the village of Readsboro.  The rehab work will make the space available to mixed use and community use.  CONTACT: David Marchegiani (802) 423-5416.Poultney Bentley Hall- $100,000.  Funding will be used to restore Bentley Hall on the edge of campus and in the center of Poultney to make the space available to the community.   CONTACT:  Paul Fonteyn, President, Green Mountain College (802) 287-8201.Richmond Round Church – $25,000.  Funds will be used to make restorations to the 195 year-old National Historic Landmark Richmond Round Church.  CONTACT:  Gary Bressor, Richmond Historical Society (802) 434-2800.Shoreham Newton Academy – $100,000.  Funds will be used to restore the 1810 federal style building on the town green in Shoreham.   CONTACT:  Wilson MacIntire, President, Newton Academy Restoration Corporation, (802) 897-2600.In June, Leahy announced that the Chandler Center for the Arts received a $250,000 federal grant through the Village Revitalization Initiative to fund the rehabilitation of the Chandler Music Hall and Gallery in Randolph.Source: Leahy’s office.

College football picks, Week 11: Alabama wins ‘Game of the Century’ over LSU; Penn State stays unbeaten

first_imgGet the latest NCAA odds & betting advice at Sportsbook ReviewOther games of note this week include No. 18 Iowa at No. 16 Wisconsin in a game of huge importance for the Big Ten West. Then there’s the question of whether No. 9 Oklahoma can rebound against Iowa State, or if No. 11 Baylor can keep its undefeated season alive against TCU.We at Sporting News are 62-12 through 10 weeks of the college football season thanks to another strong outing in Week 10, in which we went 7-1. With that, SN’s picks for the Week 11 slate of games (lines provided courtesy of Sportsbook Review as of Tuesday, Nov. 5, at noon ET):No. 22 Wake Forest (-2) at Virginia TechWake Forest plays No. 4 Clemson the week after its trip to Virginia, but don’t expect the Demon Deacons to get caught looking ahead, especially against a team that nearly scored a major upset against Notre Dame on Saturday. Dave Clawson’s offense averages 510.6 yards and 38.0 points per game, which suggests it can take advantage of a Hokies defense that gives up more than 400 yards per game. That said, quarterback Jamie Newman (2,059 passing yards, 20 touchdowns, five interceptions) must be careful considering Tech notched three turnovers against the Fighting Irish.Pick: Wake Forest 38, Virginia Tech 31No. 20 Kansas State at Texas (-7)Texas would love nothing more than to get back on track with a win over ranked Kansas State after a 37-27 loss to TCU, against whom quarterback Sam Ehlinger threw more interceptions (four) and touchdowns (two). Kansas State, meanwhile, took care of business against rival Kansas, walloping the Jayhawks 38-10 in Lawrence. Wildcats coach Chris Klieman has this team playing with great energy, but Tom Herman should have no issue motivating his team to show up in a big way after their last embarrassment. The Longhorns use the sting of their last loss and the bye week to score a big win.Pick: Texas 35, Kansas State 27No. 15 Notre Dame (-8) at DukeThe Fighting Irish narrowly avoided disaster in a 21-20 comeback win over Virginia Tech. Now they face a Blue Devils team coming off consecutive losses in which it couldn’t score more than 17 points in either game. Quarterback Ian Book will have to be more careful with the ball after throwing two picks and losing a fumble against the Hokies. He should be able to do that against a Blue Devils defense that has given up an average of 206 passing yards per game and 13 passing touchdowns on the season.Pick: Notre Dame 35, Duke 20No. 11 Baylor (-1.5) at TCUBaylor survived its first game as the lone unbeaten Big 12 team, but it will need to be better after a subpar 17-14 win over West Virginia. The Horned Frogs have won four straight games in this series since losing 61-58 in 2014, and they are the first major hurdle for the Bears’ unbeaten streak. The Bears have allowed 18.5 points per game this season, tops in the Big 12. That includes 21 points per game in conference play, impressive considering the league’s usual offensive proficiency. The Bears can win this if they play to their strengths, but they can’t get caught looking ahead to Oklahoma next week.Pick: Baylor 31, TCU 27WEEK 11 PROJECTIONS: Bowls | PlayoffIowa State at No. 9 Oklahoma (-14.5)The Sooners have had two weeks to stew over their shocking upset loss against Kansas State, so look for Lincoln Riley’s squad to come out swinging for the fences. Oklahoma has gotten a tough game from the Cyclones the last two seasons, including a 38-31 loss in Norman in 2017. Iowa State has given up more than 27 points just once this season, against Oklahoma State two weeks ago. The Sooners will be the second team to break that mark — in a win.Pick: Oklahoma 42, Iowa State 21No. 18 Iowa at No. 16 Wisconsin (-9.5)Wisconsin is out of the Playoff race, but it’s not out of the running for the Big Ten West championship yet. That must start with a win over an Iowa team that has been impressive, defensively, all season, giving up 11.5 points per game in Big Ten play. That includes an impressive 87.8 rushing yards allowed per game. That’s the challenge for Jonathan Taylor (1,009 rushing yards, 15 touchdowns) and Jack Coan (1,491 yards, 10 touchdowns, two interceptions). The Badgers must be able to win with Coan (which, to their credit, they did against Michigan State). Chryst and Co. get back on track in typical Big Ten fashion.Pick: Wisconsin 20, Iowa 17No. 5 Penn State (-7) at No. 13 MinnesotaA pair of undefeated conference foes face off in what would easily be the game if it weren’t for that pesky SEC matchup in Tuscaloosa. The Gophers enter this game having outscored their last four opponents (Illinois, Nebraska, Rutgers, Maryland) by a combined score of 170-41. Penn State hasn’t been as dominant on the scoreboard, but the Nittany Lions have the advantage of knowing how to win grind-it-out games against Iowa and Michigan. Penn State has the nation’s second-best rush defense (68.4 yards per game) and a pair of defensive ends in Shaka Toney and Yetur Gross-Matos who have 5.5 sacks apiece. If Minnesota running backs Mohamed Ibrahim and Rodney Smith (1,196 combined rushing yards, 13 touchdowns) have trouble piercing the Nittany Lions’ front seven, then the Gophers could be in trouble. Sean Clifford turns in an efficient outing to lead Penn State to 9-0 on the season. Week 11 of the college football season is here, and it offers two massively impactful games when it comes to the College Football Playoff.The first is the Big Noon Kickoff between No. 5 Penn State and No. 13 Minnesota, followed by the “Game of the Century” between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama. Pick: Penn State 27, Minnesota 17No. 1 LSU at No. 2 Alabama (-6)The game of the week also happens to be the “Game of the Century.” Don’t expect it to be as low-scoring as the last time the Tigers and Tide met as the top two teams in the country (a 9-6 win for No. 1 LSU in Bryant-Denny). Alabama’s eight-game win streak in this series hinges on whether Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa can play and, assuming he does, if he will be at 100 percent. Regardless of who starts at quarterback, receivers Jerry Jeudy, DeVonta Smith, Henry Ruggs and Jaylen Waddle will have to make plays against a secondary that includes Derek Stingley Jr. and Grant Delpit (but will be without linebacker Michael Divinity). Joe Burrow and his receiving tandem of Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase should have no problem making plays against a young Alabama defense that has been subject to several blown assignments in the second level this year. Even so, Burrow will need to be mindful of Patrick Surtain Jr. and Trevon Diggs, who have been impressive this season in Alabama’s secondary. It will be close, but it’s hard to pick Alabama coming off a bye week in what should be an amazing atmosphere in Tuscaloosa.Pick: Alabama 38, LSU 35last_img read more


first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 30, 2016)–In his first try on turf, Vending Machine, who was a close third with a quarter mile to run, rallied to take Friday’s $75,000 Eddie Logan Stakes at Santa Anita by three quarters of a length, providing Norberto Arroyo, Jr. and Peter Miller with a stakes double. A Kentucky-bred colt by Hard Spun, Vending Machine got one mile on a turf course listed as good in 1:35.87.“I was grateful, thankful to have the horses I did going into both stakes today,” said Arroyo, who took the Kalookan Queen Stakes earlier in the day with Miller’s Bad Ju Ju and who also notched his third overall win on the afternoon. “I have been working both of Pete’s horses down at San Luis Rey (Downs, Training Center). They’re both doing very well and thank God they both showed up today.”Most recently second in the Grade III Cecil B. DeMille Stakes at Del Mar Nov. 27, Vending Machine was claimed by Miller five starts back for $50,000 on Sept. 2. Off at 12-1 in a field of nine        2-year-olds, he paid $26.20, $12.20 and $6.00.When asked about running Vending Machine on turf for the first time, Miller responded, “I trained his half-brother, Comma to the Top, and he won the Generous Stakes (Grade III, one mile) on the turf and being a Hard Spun, his progeny have done well on turf so I thought he’d like it.”Owned by the Sinnott Family Trust, Vending Machine registered his third win from seven starts and with the winner’s share of $47,520, he increased his earnings to $104,325.Favored at 2-1 with Drayden Van Dyke up, Soglio flew late to nab pacesetter Cistron for the place by a head. Soglio paid $4.20 and $3.00.Cistron, who assumed command right out of the gate, had a one length advantage on the winner turning for home but had to settle for third, 1 ¾ lengths in front of Curly’s Waterfront. Off at 3-1 with Luis Contreras, Cistron paid $3.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.86, 48.19, 1:12.52 and 1:24.29.Note: The Eddie Logan Stakes, run for the 11th time, is named in honor of Santa Anita’s iconic shoeshine attendant, who manned his concession from Santa Anita’s opening on Dec. 25, 1934, through New Year’s Day, 2009. Born on May 2, 1910, Logan, who was known to thousands as “The Footman,” died at 98 at his home in nearby Monrovia on Jan. 31, 2009.
