Bay Avenue Construction Update

first_imgThe Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority (MUA) is replacing and rehabilitating the force mains that carry wastewater to the treatment plant on the bay at 45th Street. The work will be done on 31st Street from Haven Avenue to Bay Avenue and Bay Avenue from 31st Street to Eighth Street.Work for Feb. 3-7:By the end of the day Friday, Jan. 31, the contractor’s north crew, which is progressing in a southerly direction, will have installed PVC pipe, backfilled, and temporarily paved to a point directly in front of the MUA’s 20th Street Pump Station, at the corner 20th Street and Bay Avenue. The contractor’s south crew, which is progressing in a northerly direction, will have completed the same work to a point about 180 feet south of 20th Street.On Monday, Feb. 3, the north crew will remobilize on 31st Street, about 150 feet west of Haven Avenue, where they will re-excavate and begin installing the necessary piping connection hardware that will allow the connection of the new PVC pipe to the existing force main. It is expected that this aspect of work will take at least one week. Meanwhile, the south crew will continue in a northerly direction until the connection is made at the point that the north crew left off – at the 20th Street Pump Station.Traffic:On Monday, Bay Avenue will be closed from 24th to 14th streets. Also, 31st Street between Haven and Simpson Avenue will be open to local traffic only.Intermediate School Activity:Between 18th and 20th Streets, the traffic patterns and police presence will remain unchanged for the week. That is, the contractor will set up a barricade at a location immediately south of the school’s busport entrance. This will allow school buses to approach the school by driving south on Bay Avenue, and then turn left to enter the busport without conflicting with construction work.Upon exiting the busport, buses will turn right onto Bay Avenue and proceed north. A police presence will be maintained at both the intersections of 20th and Bay and 18th and Bay to supplement the efforts of the school crossing guards. The drop-off of students from cars along Haven Avenue will remain unchanged.See full project update Construction work will cause detours on Bay Avenue.last_img read more

Argentine great, Claudio Caniggia, believes Leo Messi needs leaders around him at Barcelona to be successful. Caniggia can’t see Messi leading Barca to success on his own. “Maybe Messi lacks leadership when his team is not the better side, he falls,” said Caniggia. “Messi takes responsibility and it’s clear he has character, I don’t know what might have happened there but what I always say is that for him it’s hard, he suffers when he sees his team is not better than the other side. When he goes on the pitch and sees his team is not superior, that it won’t be so easy to win, he doesn’t feel good. He struggles in adversity.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… last_img read more

Allen’s case should make civil libertarians shudder

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson In 1974, Allen arranged the burglary of Fran’s Market in Fresno. After having his son’s 17-year-old girlfriend, Mary Sue Kitts, strangled to death for her knowledge of his role in the crime, Allen was convicted of first-degree murder and began serving a life sentence at Folsom State Prison. “While in prison,” states the California Department of Corrections report, “Allen plotted to kill the people who had informed on him and gotten him prison time.” This plot included fellow inmate Billy Ray Hamilton – who, according to the Attorney General’s Office, was supplied a “hit list” by Allen. In 1980, a paroled Hamilton went to Fran’s Market and killed Bryon Schletewitz (who was on the hit list), 27, Douglas Scott White, 18, and Josephine Linda Rocha, 17, with a sawed-off shotgun. Allen was later convicted of three counts of first-degree murder with special circumstances and conspiracy to murder eight witnesses from his first trial, and began his stay on Death Row on Dec. 2, 1982. “Evidence of Allen’s guilt is overwhelming,” Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Kim McLane Wardlaw wrote. “He has shown himself more than capable of arranging murders from behind bars. If the death penalty is to serve any purpose at all, it is to prevent the very sort of murderous conduct for which Allen was convicted.” Suppose it was assured that every such killer would receive life without the possibility of ever being paroled: Many Californians would support that. But civil libertarians would undoubtedly throw a fit at the extra isolationist measures we should also take with these inmates to keep the Clarence Ray Allens of the world from striking again, to keep those on the outside safe as killers stage a multitude of appeals and may want to get rid of witnesses. If killers were truly jailed – allowed so little freedom that conspiracies could not be hatched and executed from within, that victims’ families and witnesses would not be harassed or live in fear of retribution – support for the death penalty would drop. However, as things stand, you’ll continue to see death penalty support fostered by frustration as killers slip through the system to strike again; you’ll also see Californians’ frustration at the death penalty itself mount as decades pass from sentencing to punishment. Sympathetic cases – however such sympathy for a murderer may be misplaced – will arise from time to time that erode public support for capital punishment. Despite his age and infirmities, Allen is not one of those cases. This is the man whom Californians fear when they voice even tepid support for the death penalty – the man who lacks empathy, knows no remorse, and won’t hesitate to kill again should it serve his purpose.

You’re all set! Stanley Tookie Williams was still a front-page headline, his supporters still in fighting form, when Clarence Ray Allen petitioned Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for clemency. Attorneys for Allen – who is set to die at San Quentin on Jan. 17 – filed their petition the day of the controversial execution of quadruple-murderer Williams, arguing that their client’s advanced age (75) and infirmities made lethal injection a cruel and unusual punishment. They’ve also argued that making him walk to the execution chamber would violate the Americans with Disabilities Act. There is hardly the countdown for Allen that took place in the form of staged protests and slick punditry on Williams’ behalf. Allen’s backers lean on emotional arguments that inflicting capital punishment on a diabetic heart-attack survivor in a wheelchair is excessive and unnecessary. Then again, if the justice system moved a little faster, we wouldn’t see his age brought up as a defense argument. last_img read more
