DOT spokeswoman Shannon McCarthy clarified this is not the main highway, but older highway now used as an alternative. McCarthy: “Keeping our drainage working is really important to the Department and actually saves us more money in the long run if we keep water away from the road.” McCarthy: “Our maintenance is actually replacing most of the cross-pipes on the Old Sterling in this area and they’re going to try to do the best they can to not disturb traffic but they are looking at one-lane closures for the most part, they’ll have that clearly marked. And then probably toward the end of the month they’re going to do some overnight closures to replace some of the culverts that are a little bit deeper.”center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Department of Transportation will begin excavation and culvert replacement work on the Old Sterling Highway between Anchor Point and Homer on Monday.

Gloucester press in brief: five things we learned

first_img 80-minute pursuit The pursuit of an 80-minute performance is top of the agenda for Bristol, according to Thacker, as Pat Lam’s side look to bounce back from successive league defeats.“If we stick to our systems and play the rugby we want to play, we’re capable of scoring tries and that’s the main thing for us.“We want to be the best, so you’ve got to play the best. For us, it’s a good opportunity to step up physically and mentally and try and put in an 80-minute performance and we know that when we do that, we can tear teams apart.” Home sweet home Jonathan Thomas hailed the Ashton Gate support ahead of another bumper crowd in BS3 on Friday night, insisting the influence and impact of the fans cannot be underestimated. “When I think back to that Bath game first game of the season, I still get tingles down my spine thinking about how good the crowd was and how they got us over the line in the second-half.”Same with the Newcastle home game in the second-half, the crowd really have been the 16th man for us, this season.” Accuracy Thacker has backed Bristol to cut out the unforced errors following frustrating defeats to Wasps and Harlequins.“There were a lot of unforced errors against Harlequins, or forced on our behalf, that gave them a good foothold in the game – and we’ve seen before with teams like Wasps and Quins, if you give them a good lead like that, it’s always hard to come back.“But saying that, we got ourselves in a position again to win the game and unfortunately, we couldn’t quite see it out.” Let’s get physical Harry Thacker says Bristol Bears are relishing the physical test posed by Gloucester at Ashton Gate on Friday night. “It’s a big game for us, it’s a local derby and we’re ready for it,” he said.“We’re expecting a big, physical battle up front and the way that they’re playing at the minute, they’re a great team.”They’ve beaten the two best teams in the league in the past two weeks, and we get excited about that.”center_img The Shop Cherry and white challenge Thomas says Bristol are relishing the challenge of facing a ‘quality’ Gloucester side on what promises to be a ‘fantastic occasion’ at Ashton Gate.”Gloucester are a quality team, they’ve beaten the two best teams in the league in recent weeks, so we know it’s going to be a good test for us as a group,” he said.”But it’s also one we’re really looking forward to. We relish these opportunities – you want to play against the best teams and add the spice of a local derby into that with the crowd that we have, it’s going to be a fantastic occasion.”last_img read more

Rebels need Kelly’s success to continue vs. Texas A&M

first_imgOle Miss needs quarterback Chad Kelly (10) to continue his early success against Texas A&M's strong secondary on Saturday.Ole Miss needs quarterback Chad Kelly (10) to continue his early success against Texas A&M’s strong secondary on Saturday.OXFORD — Chad Kelly is putting together not only one of the best seasons in the Southeastern Conference but also one of the top ones nationally.But the Ole Miss quarterback is more focused on his team’s record than his success.“I’d rather be 7-0 than be talking about myself,” Kelly said. “That’s the biggest thing. All that other stuff will take care of itself as long as we execute.”It shouldn’t be surprising that Kelly avoids speaking about the positive things he’s accomplished. He only speaks about improving his consistency or taking the blame for any poor performances by the offense. After the Rebels’ 38-10 loss to Florida, a game in which he was sacked four times, he said he needed to help his offensive linemen prepare better.“He has been very positive in the things that he is doing,” said Rebels coach Hugh Freeze. “Of course, we would like to see us never have any turnovers. In the red zone, there is still a lot of learning to be done. He is a little unsure at times, it seems like.“That happens sometimes, but we have to continue to coach him.”It’s hard to ignore what Kelly’s done this season. The junior has completed 154 of 235 passes (65.5 percent) for 2,234 yards and 16 touchdowns against seven interceptions.Kelly leads the SEC in passing yards per game (319.1), pass efficiency (161.9) and yards per completion (14.5) and is no worse than 12th in the country in seven categories. He set a program record with his fifth game of at least 300 yards this season in last Saturday’s 37-24 loss against Memphis, which was just his seventh game as a Rebel. The effort broke a tie with Eli Manning and Bo Wallace, whose single-season bests were four.The Rebels also set a program record with 440 passing yards, with Kelly accounting for 372. Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell also threw for 68 yards and a touchdown following a lateral from Kelly.The No. 24 Rebels (5-2, 2-1 SEC) will likely need another strong performance from Kelly in Saturday’s 6 p.m. home game against No. 15 Texas A&M (5-1, 2-1 SEC). They also hope he can avoid the two interceptions he threw against Memphis.The Aggies rank 25th among the 128 FBS programs with 183.2 passing yards allowed per game. Their average is about 20 yards better than Florida (No. 40, 197.9 yards per game) and Alabama (No. 41, 201), teams Kelly threw for 259 and 341 yards against, respectively.The Aggies have only three interceptions, which is tied for No. 105 with programs such as Louisiana-Monroe, Ole Dominion and UTEP, but have only allowed four passing touchdowns, which is tied with four other programs for sixth nationally.Kelly complimented Aggie defensive backs Justin Evans, who he played against while at East Mississippi Community College, and Devante Harris, who he went up against in the Under Armour All-America Game in January 2012.“They’ve got some good guys in the secondary,” Kelly said. “You’re going to get the best from them. It’ll be a tough test, but we’re excited about the opportunity.” Nkemdiche staying on offense? Despite suffering a concussion on a rush attempt last Saturday, Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche wants to keep playing on offense.“He came to see me (Monday) morning to make sure I wasn’t thinking of keeping him from doing that,” Freeze said. “That is just the competitor in him for sure. It has been successful for us.”Freeze said, however, he was still debating whether to continue using Nkemdiche on offense, where he has rushed four times for two scores and has also caught a 31-yard touchdown. Nkemdiche has been an integral part of the Rebels’ defense, posting 17 tackles (5.5 for loss), 1.5 sacks and four quarterback hurries.Several analysts have named Nkemdiche one of the top available players in next year’s NFL Draft if the junior decided to leave early.Contact Daniel Paulling at dpaulling@jackson.gannett.com.

Vols not worried about emotional Mizzou

first_imgMissouri head coach Gary Pinkel on the sideline against Alabama in the first quarter of the 2014 SEC Championship Game.Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel on the sideline against Alabama in the first quarter of the 2014 SEC Championship Game.KNOXVILLE — The last week for the University of Missouri football team has been eventful as Tennessee‘s last week has been quiet.On Nov. 8, Missouri’s black players boycotted team activities until university president Timothy Wolfe announced his resignation. The next day, Wolfe resigned after weeks of tension surrounding race relations on the Columbia, Mo., campus.As if that wasn’t enough for a dramatic week, Missouri coach Gary Pinkel announced Friday that he would be stepping down at the end of the season because of lymphoma.The Vols’ last week was run-of-the-mill, handing a 24-0 loss to North Texas on Saturday at Neyland Stadium. Tennessee will pay a visit to Missouri on Saturday (6:15 p.m., ESPN2) with emotions surely running high on the opposite sideline.SPANNING THE SEC: Check in for the latest news, notes, scores and more for one of college football’s best conferences! Coach Butch Jones and players insisted Monday that they aren’t worried about the environment that awaits them this weekend. Saturday will be Pinkel’s last home game and the football team’s first home game since the protest.“The concern is we’re facing a really good football team,” Jones said when asked if he’s concerned about the atmosphere. ” … We expect (emotions) every time we go on the road in the SEC. It’s no different than any of the other venues we’ve gone into.”Jones’ relationship with Pinkel, 63, dates back to the late 1990s, when Jones was an assistant at Central Michigan and Pinkel coached Toledo.“They’ve taken on the personality of their head football coach,” Jones said of Missouri, which has one of the country’s top defenses. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for coach Pinkel.”UT offense lacking without Josh Dobbs’ runsMissouri coach Gary Pinkel tearfully talks about leavingMissouri will be Tennessee’s third consecutive opponent that either has undergone or will undergo a coaching change this season. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier resigned earlier this season and was replaced by interim head coach Shawn Elliott for the game against the Vols. North Texas fired head coach Dan McCarney in October and replaced him with interim coach Mike Canales.Linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin, a Clarksville native, said the coaching changes might impact what the coaches do schematically but don’t impact his job very much.“I don’t really see it as a challenge,” Reeves-Maybin said. “I’m playing against the players. I’m not playing against the coaches.”Even before Pinkel announced he’d be stepping down, Saturday’s game figured to be intense given the recent unrest on Missouri’s campus. Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs said he’s aware of what has occurred at Missouri and knows several players on that team.The recent events in Missouri should have no bearing on how the Vols approach this game, according to Dobbs.“We’re pretty isolated when we go on the road,” he said. “There’s things we can’t control, but we just focus on what we can control.”Game time set: Tennessee’s game against Vanderbilt on Nov. 28 in Knoxville will begin at 3 p.m. Central, the SEC announced Monday.The game will be the regular-season finale for both teams. Vanderbilt has won two of the last three meetings, with the Vols winning last year in Nashville.Reach Matt Slovin at mslovin@tennessean.com and on Twitter @MattSlovin.

S.Africa tour commissioner predicts difficult future for golf

first_imgCAPE TOWN, (Reuters) – South Africa’s Sunshine Tour has created a fund for players and caddies to provide financial assistance for the next two months, but commissioner Selwyn Nathan said the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic could take the game back 20 years. Leading players on the men’s and ladies tour, as well as caddies, will be given an unspecified stipend in April and May to make up for the postponement of tournaments.The tour has four co-sanctioned events with the European Tour but is on hold with scheduled tournaments outside South Africa in Eswatini, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Kenya all under threat.“We will review the decision to suspend the tour on April 26 and then every 30 days thereafter, to see the health situation in all our countries, and to get the thinking of local authorities and sponsors,” Nathan told Reuters in a telephone interview yesterday. “It is inevitable, I believe, that there will be a rejig of the calendar by the European Tour to fit in with the U.S. Open, PGA and Masters, and I think there will be a lot of haircuts. “I don’t think guys will be playing for between 800,000 and 1.5-million euros (as a first prize) any more.“In my opinion, and after speaking to people around the world, we could be winding the clock back to 2000.“And for now that might be the smartest thing in sport, to go back to something that is more palatable for partners.” FINANCIAL LOSSNathan believes the financial loss felt by the game’s sponsors during the coronavirus crisis will be passed on to golf.“BMW, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz aren’t making or selling cars. Turkish Airlines and KLM aren’t flying. Look at sponsors all around the world of sport, having to lay people off… I think there are going to be different priorities going forward. “You might have to ask them for less and do more, and most important will be what your value proposition is.“The retention you get might be based on how you budget through this period and how you behave going forward.”The Sunshine and European tours have one immediate problem, the new date of the U.S. Masters, which will be staged from Nov. 9-15, coincides with the co-sanctioned Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City, regarded as ‘Africa’s Major’. The PGA Championship will now take place from Aug. 3-9, while the U.S. Open has been moved to Sept. 17-20.“We will have to take our lead from the American calendar, but our slots (on the European Tour) are still nine months away,” Nathan added.“I think they will need us like oxygen, and we will need them also to give our players something to play in.“But nobody is going to be walking around as gung-ho as they were, not in any sporting sphere around the world.”last_img read more
