Holmdel looks to lease tennis center

first_imgLessee would ‘raze and level courts’ in exchange for 8- to 10-week academy BYMIKE DAVIS Staff Writer HOLMDEL — Township officials are looking to bring the Holmdel Tennis Center up to par.At its March 1 meeting, the Holmdel Township Committee unanimously voted to introduce an ordinance authorizing the lease of the Holmdel Tennis Center.“We got an alternative approach which would involve … just refurbishing the courts themselves and conducting a tennis academy for a period of eight to 10 weeks, and that would be the trade-off,” Township Administrator Andrew Katz said at the meeting.“They would do that work, and take care of just the courts. I think it’s a worthwhile approach to consider.“It’s kind of a no-lose for the township because even if it turns out that it doesn’t work out in the long run, the courts go back up,” he continued.The Holmdel Tennis Center consists of eight har-tru (clay) courts and is open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, the township’s website states. Katz said significant work is needed at the Bailey Lane facility, such as repairing lighting and infrastructure.“They’re going to raze and level the courts, redo them with the correct playing material and fix the irrigation system,” Katz explained.By having the large amount of repairs done by a contractor, the township can then look at ways of making the tennis center a year-round facility, such as constructing an indoor bubble on the property. “From there you’d probably be able to build into the larger. It’d be one chunk of expense that somebody wouldn’t have to do,” Katz said.The bidder who approached the township intends to see a bubble come to fruition, he explained.“What they saw … was the opportunity that, if they’re not able to do the full thing, what could they do, with the idea of being able to build toward that,” he said.“They’re going to invest in fixing up the courts, but it gives them a year or two to see what the market really is and [a year-round club] is absolutely their intent. That’s what they do elsewhere. They do the full-blown operation.”Katz said the township had looked at leasing the club in previous years, but potential tenants could not weigh the cost of repairs to operation.“There’s been some efforts over the last couple of years to get a private concern to take over the tennis club, refurbish it and make it a going operation,” he said.“They tend to fall short because the businesses that are trying to do it … what happens is, the cost of refurbishing makes it so they just can’t quite get the financing. They can’t project a revenue stream that’s strong enough.”Katz estimated that the winning bidder would likely be awarded a one-year contract, with an option for a second year, under that arrangement.“A bidder can propose a premium, offer to start … [looking] at their costs and say, ‘For the first year and a half, I’m just recovering my costs, but in the second year I can afford to pay this, so I’ll offer this to be the winning bidder,” he explained.Apublic hearing on the ordinance will be held at the committee’s March 22 meeting.

CSUN tops in prepping Ph.D. pupils

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Burbank-based Warner Bros. Studios awarded its employees Scott Derek Gaba and Santo C. Rango Time Warner Inc.’s 25th annual Andrew Heiskell Community Service Award last week. For the last quarter-century, Time Warner has given the award to employees who’ve made exceptional contributions to public service. Gaba, a costumer for the studio facilities’ corporate archive department, co-founded Fresh Start, a sober-living home in Reseda. Fresh Start has grown from a single house for men to a facility for up to 18 men and 12 women. Rango, Warner Bros.’ travel operations coordinator, co-founded the Creative Planet School for the Arts, a private, nonprofit elementary school in Baldwin Park that offers accelerated academics and an after-school art program for low-income kids. Each winner gets $5,000, $3,000 of which goes to the nonprofit of his or her choice, and the other $2,000 as a personal honorarium. The award is named after Andrew Heiskell, the late former chairman and CEO of Time Inc. Actor Tony Danza awarded two scholarships totaling $6,000 last week to Serenity Pelayo and Brian Reynolds, seniors at Taft High School in Woodland Hills. Danza awards the scholarships every year in honor of Lamoun Thames, a Taft student stabbed to death by gang members outside the school in 1992. Thames’ family attended the event. The National Science Foundation recently ranked California State University, Northridge, second in the nation in preparing students to earn doctoral degrees in research fields, particularly sciences, according to a university statement released last week. Only California State University, Long Beach, graduated more students who went on to earn doctoral degrees between 1995 and 2004. Between 50 and 70 CSUN alumni earned doctoral degrees each year during that span. Furthermore, CSUN ranked first nationwide in preparing psychology doctorate recipients, a title it’s held consistently since 1991. CSUN was fourth in the nation in graduating students who went on to earn doctorates in the social sciences. It also came sixth in preparing science and engineering doctorates and tenth in biological sciences. To commemorate Hunger Awareness Month, Albertson’s Inc. gave $30,000 Wednesday to the Valley Food Bank for food donations to the needy. The donation, raised from Food for All contributions by shoppers, was based on a “Dash for the Hungry” at the Albertsons in Granada Hills. The dash competition pitted three teams vying to load the most groceries into carts in five minutes. Participants included two-member teams from Councilwoman Wendy Greuel’s office, Valley Food Bank of North Hollywood and the media, including KABC Channel 7 and the Daily News. Valley Food Bank is a member of the Rescue Mission Alliance. The scholarships have gone each of the past 14 years to two students who wouldn’t otherwise get a chance to go to college. Pelayo and Reynolds earned the scholarships for exceeding academically while enduring financial hardship. Pelayo has been accepted at California State University, San Francisco, and Reynolds at Temple University in Philadelphia.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘I still haven’t made my peace with Gary Neville’, Harry Redknapp tells talkSPORT

first_img 3 Redknapp coached a host of class players during his spell in charge at White Hart Lane “We finished fourth, fourth and fifth and we had good players and played some great football.“I had Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Ledley King, players like that and I felt we could have pushed on and finished higher the following year.“So to say they were rubbish teams, to label people as spineless and useless, I thought it was a disgrace to say that.“Ledley King was getting off the treatment table and you’ve never seen a knee like it. His knee would be like a balloon all week and he’d come out and play on a Saturday. To call him spineless… Gary Neville is ‘an absolute disgrace’ for Spurs comments, blasts RedknappMan United legend in brutal response to ‘do your homework’ rantRedknapp still annoyed with Neville: ‘He’s not man enough to admit he’s wrong’ The jungle king returned to talkSPORT on Wednesday for the first time since winning ‘I’m a Celebrity‘ and was asked if he has made his peace with Neville. He told Jim White: “No, not really. No.“I’ve not had a chat with him. I haven’t spoken to him, nope.“I just thought what he said was a load of crap.“I’m not going to sit back and let him say that.“How can he say that about the last 30 years? I only know about the team I managed at Tottenham and that was a good team. 3 3center_img “Listen, Manchester United went to Southampton and got beat 6-3 one day when Fergie was manager- it happens in football.“I thought we played fantastic football during that period. You look through that team I had, it was full of quality players with character. We had Scott Parker who was a great competitor, we had Crouchy, we had Rafa van der Vaart – it was a very, very good team and I was proud to manage them.”Listen back to a clip of Harry Redknapp on talkSPORT above! Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT he has not yet made his peace with Gary Neville after the Manchester United legend’s ‘disgraceful’ comments about Tottenham Hotspur.The pair were involved in a back-and-forth on the talkSPORT airwaves and social media channels last month following Spurs’ 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League.The Sky Sports pundit said Tottenham teams over the last 30 years have been ‘spineless’, ‘flaky’ and ‘pathetic’ – and Harry took it rather personally.The former manager phoned into the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast to hit back at the ex-Man United defender, and Neville then responded with a cheeky message on Twitter. But that only enraged Redknapp even more, who came back on air to have another pop at his comments.And it seems the two have not made up since.

Anger as anti-abortion crosses found dumped in Donegal countryside

first_imgHundreds of crosses used as part of an abortion protest campaign have been left to litter the Donegal countryside.An anti-abortion group spend hours placing more than 10,000 of the wooden crosses along a 15km stretch of road between Derry and Donegal last May in the lead up to the country’s Abortion Referendum.The group along with Donegal County Council removed many of the crosses which some drivers had claimed to be a distraction. But now hundreds of the crosses have been found buried in ditches along the busy roadside.Local county councillor Paul Canning found many of the crosses hidden along grass verges while taking part in a clean-up today.Some of the wooden crosses found buried in ditches today.He said he appreciated that everyone had their opinion on the Referendum which took place on May 25th last.But he said there was simply no excuse for anyone who littered the countryside. He explained “Out on our Saturday morning litter pick we decided to concentrate on the main road from Newtowncunningham to Manorcunningham. It was a lovely morning for the job.“But it was so disappointing to see after all these weeks that the little white crosses have been bundled up and shoved deep into the ditches in numerous places along this main road.“I appreciate people having concerns about our constitution but our environment matters too. I would appeal to the people that put up these crosses to kindly have them removed from our ditches.”Anger as anti-abortion crosses found dumped in Donegal countryside was last modified: October 9th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:abortionCllr Paul Canningcrossesdonegallast_img read more
