first_imgThe pumping station is proposed at Sixth Street and Bay Avenue. McClellan noted that he would consider having it built at another site in the north end in response to neighborhood concerns in his ward and lingering questions over whether another location would be better to help solve the flooding. They also support the construction of a proposed pumping station in the north end of town to help alleviate tidal flooding in surrounding neighborhoods. “These neighborhoods have had flooding for decades from storms. If we can bring some relief to those neighborhoods, it would be a great thing,” DeVlieger said. Bovera said other candidates have taken out petitions but have not yet returned them to the Clerk’s Office. They include H. Lloyd Hayes III, for the Council at-large seat, Georgina Shanley, in the Third Ward, and Fourth Ward candidates Edward Price, Bart Russell, Sharon Gawel and Robert Barr. Price, who is considering his options, has also taken out petitions for the at-large seat, according to a list of candidates compiled by the Clerk’s Office. “There’s still a lot of work to be done,” DeVlieger said. The city’s proposed $20 million dredging program to clear out clogged lagoons along the back bays is another major project supported by DeVlieger and McClellan. A top priority of their campaigns will be the dredging, roadway, beach replenishment and flood-mitigation projects that are part of the city’s proposed $98.5 million capital plan. McClellan, 41, is a Purchasing Department buyer for Cape May County. Even if they run unchallenged, both DeVlieger and McClellan said they are planning to mount vigorous campaigns that will keep them in close contact with their constituents. “I will continue to work hard,” McClellan said. “I will continue to knock on doors.”center_img Second Ward Councilman Antwan McClellan turns in his nominating petitions to City Clerk Melissa Bovera.By Donald WittkowskiOcean City Councilmen  Antwan McClellan and Michael DeVlieger submitted their nominating petitions Friday to have their names placed on the ballot for the May 10 municipal election.

first_imgNewcastle 1 QPR 0Substitute Shola Ameobi’s late goal condemned struggling QPR to their first defeat under Harry Redknapp.They were nine minutes away from a rare clean sheet when good work from Davide Santon led to the deadlock being broken.Santon ran at the visiting defence and found James Perch, whose pass set Ameobi up for a well taken goal.The striker cut inside the challenge of Adel Taarabt and sent a curling shot beyond keeper Rob Green and into the corner of the net.Rangers, with Fabio, Anton Ferdinand and Esteban Granero brought into the starting line-up, spent much of the game soaking up pressure but had managed to restrict their opponents to the odd chance.Numerous clearances from the ever-dependable Ryan Nelsen helped keep Newcastle at bay in the first half and Fabio’s challenge denied Papiss Cisse as he bore down on goal.In the second half, Cisse headed wide from Jonas Gutierrez’s left-wing cross and Demba Ba had a weak header saved by Green before Ameobi netted.QPR: Green, Ferdinand, Nelsen, Hill, Fabio, Granero (Wright-Phillips 56), Mbia, Faurlin (Derry 78),  Mackie, Taarabt, Cisse (Hoilett 64).Subs not used: Murphy, Diakite, Traore, Onuoha.  See also:QPR boss hits out at highly-paid flopsNewcastle v QPR player 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_img26 April 2013Energy firm Total South Africa will invest R140-million over two years to upgrade its blending plant and expand the capacity of its fuel depot at Durban’s Island View Terminal facility, it announced on Wednesday.The investment follows the signing of a 15-year lease with Transnet National Port Authority.“We see this as a major vote of confidence in South Africa, as well as in other countries in southern Africa, as some of the additional lubricants we will be blending will be exported to Southern African Development Community countries, which we see as a growth market for our lubricants,” Total South Africa’s CEO, Christian des Closieres, said in a statement.Work on the plants is expected to be complete by the end of 2014.“Our roots in South Africa go back to the mid-1950s and we are committed to growing our business in South Africa and southern Africa through sustainably growing our infrastructure and distribution channels in the fuels and lubricants markets,” said Des Closieres.The blending facility upgrade will cost approximately R50-million and focus on modernising filling lines, an on-site laboratory and improving health and safety features and quality control measures.Expansion of the fuel storage depot will cost about R90-million and will allow 26% of fuel to be stored on-site.It is expected that the expansion will lead to an improved integration into national infrastructure such as the New Multi Product Pipeline.“We view this big investment in South Africa as further evidence of the successful partnership we have with our local shareholders in South Africa,” he said. “It also demonstrates our ongoing emphasis on health and safety quality control and catering for future growth.”Total South Africa’s local shareholders are black empowerment investment holding firm Tosaco and Johannesburg Stock Exchange-listed Remgro Ltd.It is the first subsidiary of an international petroleum company to comply with the ownership criteria of the Liquid Fuels Charter.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
