A tucked-away rehabilitated garage set behind one of the grand old houses on Sag Harbor’s Main Street, the Micro-barn serves as an artists studio and events space for Sag Harbor’s burgeoning art scene. Designed to communicate on a new pocket pebble garden with an aged elm tree, the barn with its angled sliding glass doors and an attached mini deck allows artist occupants access to nature and private contemplation, separate from the active parking lot adjacent.Save this picture!BeforeSave this picture!© Attic FireThe original stick-framed garage which had suffered extreme neglect and was about to collapse was first yanked back into square and re-pinned to its foundation by the contractor. An attached tumble-down shed was demolished, but a hint of that former structure is felt in the geometry of a new attached exterior deck, placed at the same dogleg angle as the original structure.Save this picture!© Attic FireSave this picture!Plan 01Save this picture!© Attic FireThe Micro-barn features modest materials of low cost but evocative of the Hamptons locale – a knotty cedar board-and-batten corduroy siding assembly complements a polycarbonate roof and clerestory, used for daylighting the interior. A cedar slat screen for privacy between the pocket garden and the parking lot interleaves with the corduroy siding. Panels of white-painted oriented strand board serve as interior gallery walls. The original diagonal structural braces and geometry of the garage roof were preserved, and a raised floor at the rear of the interior space was created to allow a domestic or performance zone for the artist occupant, as well as other temporary and informal uses not envisioned by the design team.Save this picture!© Attic FireProject gallerySee allShow lessBuilding Trust International Names Winner of the 2018 Affordable Housing Design Chal…Architecture NewsVPJC House / Ar:Co Arquitetura CooperativaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Main St, Southampton, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Ocean City Places New Limits on Beach Cabanas

first_imgCabanas must now be placed at the back of the beach close to the dunes. By DONALD WITTKOWSKIOn Ocean City’s beaches, cabanas are normally spread out across swaths of sand as sunbathers jockey for prime spots just steps from the water. But this summer, there are new rules limiting the location and size of cabanas as social distancing has become critical on the beaches during the coronavirus pandemic. The regulations lump cabanas, large tents and canopies into the same category. However, beach umbrellas and so called “baby pop-up tents” are not included. Cabanas, large tents and canopies are now banned from the beaches between First and 10th Streets. City spokesman Doug Bergen explained that they are prohibited there because those are some of the busiest and narrowest beaches in town. However, in June and July the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is scheduled to replenish storm-damaged beaches from Seaview Road to 13th Street with 1.45 million cubic yards of new sand. Meanwhile, on the beaches where cabanas, tents and canopies are still allowed, they must be placed at the back of the beach within 10 feet of the dunes. Also, they must be spaced at least 6 feet apart from each other. In addition, there are size limits to the cabanas. They can be no larger than 8 feet wide by 6 feet deep by 6 feet tall, according to the regulations. City Council approved a resolution formalizing the new cabana regulations on May 14, just as the beaches were opening back up for sunbathing after a nearly two-month shutdown caused by the pandemic. “The resolution for 2020 took into consideration the recommendation for social distancing, including limitation on size of groups and gatherings,” Bergen said. The city plans to post new signs to alert beachgoers of the new regulations, Bergen noted. Andrea Bush, of Norristown, Pa., stands in front of her beach cabana while holding her 3-year-old son, Kaynen.Some cabana users interviewed Saturday were surprised by the new regulations. Andrea Bush, a visitor from Norristown, Pa., was sitting under the protection of a large cabana on the 11th Street beach. She was joined by her 3-year-old son, Kaynen. “I’m a beach bum. It’s our first trip here. We’re glad to be here,” Bush said of her family, including her fiance and their children, ages 11 to 3. Yet Bush was disappointed to hear of the cabana rules, particularly the size limits. Her cabana is considered too big under the new regulations. “This is a 10-by-10-by-10. This is the standard size they sell in the store,” Bush said. Just down the beach, Joseph McEneaney and his wife, Audrey, were tucked under their cabana for shelter from the sun. “On a scale of 1 to 10, this is a 10. It gives us protection from skin cancer and the sun,” McEneaney said of the importance of his cabana. McEneaney, who has a summer home in Ocean City, said he brings his cabana every time he goes to the beach. His cabana is taller than the 6 foot height limit set by the city. “Six feet tall – I’ve never even heard of that for a cabana,” he said. Noting that he wasn’t even aware of the cabana regulations, McEneaney believes the city should have made a greater effort to publicize the new rules before they took effect.last_img read more

GSAS students come to campus

first_imgWhether they were walking to campus from nearby Somerville, Mass., or flying in from Singapore, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) students found their way to campus on Friday.Students who hailed from Armenia, Brazil, Ghana, India, Italy, Nigeria, and Russia began moving into the GSAS’ four residence halls — Perkins and Conant built in the 1890s and the Walter Gropius-designed Richards and Child in 1950. With a capacity of more than 400, Harvard’s physical distancing protocols placed limits on the residence hall population, and only 50 students will be in residence for the fall term.GSAS is the most international School at Harvard, with 35 percent of the student body coming from outside the U.S. Since 1979, the School began appointing resident advisers — graduate students who live in the halls — to host community events throughout the year. This year, those events will be virtual.GSAS residential life coordinator Mari Lentz (right) helped check in student Sudarshana Chanda.last_img read more

Cattlemen’s choices

first_imgGeorgia’s extreme drought has devastated pastures, and hay supplies are all but gone. Cattlemen are struggling to feed their herds. University of Georgia experts are working to educate them on how to weather the situation better.A series of workshops will provide producers across the state with information on marketing strategies, the tax implications of weather-forced sales, emergency forage choices and much more, said Dennis Hancock, an agronomist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. A cooperative effortIn planning the information sessions, Hancock, and other UGA CAES specialists, worked closely with representatives from the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association, the Georgia Farm Bureau, the Georgia Milk Producers, the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia governor’s office.The first workshop was held in Calhoun, and future sessions are set for Dahlonega (July 2), Macon (July 5), Athens (July 9), Plains (July 16), Bainbridge (July 17) and Statesboro (July 19). Additional dates may be added.Along with the workshops, Hancock said, cattlemen can find information at the Web site www.georgiaforages.com.Cold, drought and ethanolA late spring freeze and a severe drought now has severely decreased hay production in Georgia and the Southeast, he said. And land that was once planted for hay in other regions is now being used to grow corn for the current ethanol boom.”Hay supplies are very tight nationwide,” Hancock said. “They’re actually the lowest they’ve been in over 50 years.”Cattlemen are paying double what they normally would for hay. “And despite the price, the quality is low,” he said.Be careful what you buyHancock is warning cattlemen to be leery of hay. People are now selling low-quality material, he said. “Farmers are desperate and are tempted to take just about anything they can get,” he said.Suspicious hay can be tested for quality at local UGA Cooperative Extension offices.Withered pastures, alternative feedsThe drought has limited the growth of Georgia’s pastures, too. Withered pasture grasses can’t compete against summer annual weeds that are often much more tolerant of drought conditions.”The shorter the grasses are grazed, the lower the quality of the forage,” Hancock said.To feed their herds, farmers are turning to alternative feeds such as soybean hulls, corn gluten feed and cottonseed, he said. “These sources can replace a substantial amount of hay and are very cost effective,” Hancock said.Before developing alternative livestock diets on their own, Hancock tells farmers to check with their county agent. “They can help producers develop a ration based on what they have available to them,” he said.Converting drought-stressed crops such as pearl millet, sorghum-sudan and corn into animal feed can be helpful, he said, but the potential for nitrate toxicity is very high.County agents can also help farmers keep their cattle from becoming ill by conducting a field test on pasture grasses. “At $10, it’s a good inexpensive insurance policy,” Hancock said. “It’s much better than losing am animal or a whole herd.”Focus on financesHancock tells struggling farmers to view each animal as an investment. “Whatever animal you invest in, there should be a return,” he said. “Look at the economics of your situation and get your animal population down to a manageable size.”Once this is accomplished, Hancock advises farmers to develop a balanced ration based on the size and number of cattle or other livestock.last_img read more

Vermont officials announce help for municipalities with storm-related cash flow issues

first_imgState Treasurer Beth Pearce, legislative leadership, and the Shumlin administration today announced a package of measures that will accelerate highway aid and education payments and allow disaster-impacted towns to defer education payments due to the State on December 1.               ‘A key to Vermont’s successful recovery from the disasters that have struck is the ongoing partnership between State and municipal governments,’ said State Treasurer Beth Pearce. ‘The package we are announcing today recognizes that Vermont towns do not stand alone as they work to rebuild. We must continue to exercise flexibility in our financial planning to provide impacted communities with the help needed to fully recover.’ The financial package includes: ·         As was done in September, the Treasurer’s Office will accelerate local highway aid payments that were scheduled to go out to towns on January 15, 2012. The approximately $6.4 million will be disbursed to towns prior to Thanksgiving.·         The Treasurer’s Office also will accelerate education payments this week to local schools of approximately $125 million. These payments were due to be released on December 10.·         Towns significantly impacted by the spring flooding disasters and Tropical Storm Irene may defer for one-time-only a portion of education payments due to the State on December 1, up to the amount of unreimbursed claims. For impacted towns, payment would not be due until February 28, 2012, without any interest applied. If payments were not paid in full by the February deadline, 8 percent interest would be assessed for all outstanding balances, retroactive to December 1. Currently, State statute requires the Treasurer to assess 8 percent interest on any late payments. Legislative leadership is committed to passing the legislation necessary to allow the deferred payments.              ‘We’ve all been impressed with the progress towns have made in rebuilding their local communities and we also recognize the financial strain they are under,’ said Secretary of Administration Jeb Spaulding. ‘These measures, proposed by the State Treasurer, underscore the State’s commitment to do our very best to provide the assistance needed to enable all Vermont communities to recover from what has been an extraordinary year for storm related damage.’             In addition to Tropical Storm Irene, Vermont communities continue to rebuild from severe storms and flooding that hit the state in the spring.             ‘The legislature is committed to helping communities overcome the enormous challenges these storms have imposed on our state,’ explained Speaker Shap Smith. ‘The goal of this package is to ease the cash flow pressures and take away some of the worries so many municipalities are facing in the aftermath of disaster.’               ‘This one-time deferment recognizes that we all must do what we can to help impacted communities continue their recovery efforts,’ said Senate President Pro Tempore John Campbell. ‘These are unique circumstances that require action now to ensure we continue our remarkable rebuilding process.’             Municipalities will be required to prepare a cost estimate of storm-related damages and certify that they have, or are in the process of making, the repairs associated with the estimate in order to document the amount of education tax payment that will be deferred. The estimate can only include costs incurred or reasonably expected to be incurred, prior to February 28, 2012. If a town has received any payments from FEMA, the Federal Highway Administration, the Vermont League of Cities and Towns Property and Casualty Intermunicipal Fund insurance program, or private insurance, that amount must be deducted from the education tax deferred payment amount that is being requested. Such payments only apply if they are associated with a town’s original cost estimate for storm related damages.             ‘We appreciate the responsiveness of State and legislative leaders to the needs of our Vermont cities and towns,’ said Steven Jeffery, Executive Director of the Vermont League of Cities and Towns. ‘Vermont’s recovery effort is something we all have a stake in. I am pleased that we can work together on proposals that recognize our shared commitment to a full and complete rebuilding effort on the part of all our communities.’Vermont State Treasurer’s Office. 11.22.2011last_img read more

Business is booming along Main Street for one Endicott hair salon

first_img“Getting the place ready, a lot of our shipping was delayed; some of the things we never got, some things got shipped to the wrong place, stuff like that happened, so a lot of the renovations couldn’t happen the way we wanted to,” Crockett told 12 News Friday. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — One local business has expanded its operations despite the ongoing pandemic. When a property became available on East Main Street earlier this year, they viewed it as a good business opportunity. However, the pandemic hit soon after, delaying their dreams of opening the new salon. The owners of Jade and Rose Salon in Endicott first opened up shop along North Street. Crockett said they used the downtime when they were closed to renovate the space since it had been vacant for years. However, even that process involved its own challenges. Staff said they had to make adjustments to their plans in order to be able to open. “Originally we were all going to be in the front room to start with so now we’ve all spread out throughout the house and we’re all working in different room so we’re even more than six feet apart and we don’t have to work our schedules around each other,” said co-owner Coreen Crockett.last_img read more

No firm plans for Breeders’ Cup heroine Tarnawa | Racing News

first_imgHowever, Tarnawa put that particular anomaly right in spectacular style in Kentucky – and speaking from his County Kildare yard on Sunday morning, Weld spoke of his immense pride and delight.“The Breeders’ Cup Turf is always one of the best races in the world and it was lovely to win it,” the trainer said on Racing TV’s Luck on Sunday programme.“It feels exceptionally good – the Breeders’ Cup was the one major event I wanted to win a big race at.- Advertisement – Dermot Weld is unsure what the future holds for Tarnawa after the filly provided him with his first Breeders’ Cup victory at Keeneland on Saturday.The master of Rosewell House has enjoyed huge success on the international stage, with a pair of Melbourne Cup victories and multiple top-level wins in America featuring on his illustrious CV – but a Breeders’ Cup winner had so far eluded him.- Advertisement – Explaining the sequence of events, Weld added: “Keeneland is a very tight turf track and it’s nice to know your horse as you need everything in your favour when you’re going into a race like the Breeders’ Cup Turf.“She always breaks slowly, so we decided on Thursday that we’d school her out of the stalls on the track and arranged with Christophe Soumillon to do that, which he duly did.“She jumped out nicely for him, Christophe was delighted with her, but an hour later I heard he was positive for Covid-19, so we needed a replacement jockey.“I was extremely satisfied with my filly and the decision was whether to go for an American rider or wait and get a European rider.“Javier Castellano has ridden winners for me and was available, Frankie Dettori was riding in the race (on Lord North) and I just thought ‘why not go with Colin Keane’. He was out there, he was riding in the Mile beforehand and he’s an outstanding young rider.“Colin has only ridden for me once before, at Cork – usually he’s riding against me.”Weld admitted the success was tinged with sadness as he thought of his former stable jockey Pat Smullen, who died earlier this year following a long battle with cancer.“The only aspect of the great victory of last night that was sad was thinking how much Pat would have enjoyed riding Tarnawa,” said Weld.“They were basically made for each other because she’s a tough filly and a classic stayer with speed – she’s the sort of horse that Pat rode exceptionally well.”On whether Tarnawa will return to race on as a five-year-old in 2021, the trainer added: “No decision has been made on whether she will be retired or whether she’ll be racing again next year.“We’ll see how she comes out of the race. His Highness (Aga Khan, owner) has a history of retiring fillies at the end of their three or four-year-old career, so whether an exception will be made for her or not, I don’t know.“She’s an amazing filly in that she won on very fast ground in America last night and she’s won on very heavy, testing ground a few weeks ago in Paris.” – Advertisement – “Nowadays I train 80 horses, so it’s a much smaller team than most of the opposition, so you’ve got to pick your spots very carefully and very well.”Tarnawa’s chances of success had seemingly suffered a significant blow in earlier in the week after jockey Christophe Soumillon, who had steered her to successive Group One wins in France this autumn, was forced to miss the ride after testing positive for Covid-19.However, recently-crowned Irish champion jockey Colin Keane proved a more than able deputy.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Restore Pennsylvania Introduced with Strong Bipartisan Support

first_img June 05, 2019 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Government That Works,  Infrastructure,  Press Release,  Restore Pennsylvania Harrisburg, PA – Guided by local feedback on the infrastructure needs of Pennsylvania’s communities, the Restore Pennsylvania legislation was introduced with strong bipartisan support today. House Bill 1585, sponsored by Rep. Jake Wheatley and Rep. Thomas Murt, has 99 cosponsors and Senate Bill 725, sponsored by Sen. John Yudichak and Sen. Tom Killion has 25 cosponsors.“We have a real opportunity to make impactful infrastructure investments in Pennsylvania. Restore Pennsylvania is the only plan presented that can actually address the needs in every community,” said Gov. Wolf. “We have an opportunity to provide all of our students internet access, an opportunity to help our municipalities truly address the crippling effects of blight, an opportunity to help families devasted by flooding when the federal government turns its back on them, and so much more. We need to seize this opportunity for all Pennsylvanians.”Earlier this year, Gov. Wolf stood with a bipartisan group of legislative members to announce the Restore Pennsylvania proposal, citing the need to invest in infrastructure across Pennsylvania. Since then, Governor Wolf and his administration have made more than 75 stops in communities across the state, garnering official endorsements from more than 60 stakeholders and municipal leaders, and verbal support from hundreds more.Funded by the monetization of a commonsense severance tax, Restore Pennsylvania will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant, high-impact projects throughout the commonwealth to help catapult Pennsylvania ahead of every state in the country in terms of technology, development, and infrastructure.Keeping the impact fee in place, Restore Pennsylvania will provide resources to communities that disproportionately receive impact fee funding, allowing all municipalities to complete much-needed infrastructure projects and improving the quality of life for Pennsylvanians in every corner of the commonwealth.Encompassing new and expanded programs to address priority infrastructure areas, Restore Pennsylvania projects will be driven by local input about local needs. Projects identified by local stakeholders will be evaluated through a competitive process to ensure that high-priority, high-impact projects are funded and needs across Pennsylvania are met.Learn more about the new details of Restore Pennsylvania at governor.pa.gov/restore-pennsylvania/.center_img Restore Pennsylvania Introduced with Strong Bipartisan Supportlast_img read more

Sales down, vendors point to economy

first_imgAs the number of farmers’ markets on and around campus continues to rise, many of those markets — including the Trojan Fresh Market, which will be on campus on Thursday — have seen profits fall, though most blame the slip on the economy and not on the increased competition.Besides the on-campus Trojan Fresh Market, there are at least six other markets near USC. Many of these markets report that their profits are down, but individual vendors often benefit by selling at multiple venues.Farmville · A man shops for vegetables at the farmers’ market located at Adams Boulevard and Vermont Avenue. The market, which is near St. Agnes Catholic Church, runs on Wednesdays from 2-5 p.m. – Amaresh Sundaram Kuppuswamy | Daily TrojanHelen Lee, who manages the farmers’ market at the Shrine that runs every Tuesday, said she does not think her market is competing with the Trojan Fresh Market or any of the others.“We don’t consider us in competition with USC,” Lee said. “And the Trojan Fresh Market doesn’t affect our business. In fact, [USC] Hospitality came through here and took some vendors to the Trojan Fresh Market … We encourage that.”Lee said she never had any intention of making money from the farmers’ markets. Instead, she wanted to help the vendors make money, so when they’re approached and asked to join other farmers’ markets, she views it as a good thing.“[The Shrine farmers’ market] helps a lot of local neighbors who came here as vendors,” Lee said. “We’re definitely here just for the people.”Vendors at the Shrine, however, have also found business to be slow so far this year.Olove Boyd, an employee for Heavenly Delights, which sells cobbler at the Shrine and other farmers markets, said business is down right now.“Usually it’s slow in the beginning, but hopefully it picks up,” Boyd said. “I think it’s the economy. Farmers’ markets are not a necessity … When there are cutbacks, people take hits.”Boyd noted that it is USC that drives her business, even with the presence of the Trojan Fresh Market.“The majority [of customers] are students and USC employees,” Boyd said. “USC helps our business or we wouldn’t be here.”Dexter Scott, who sells beans at the Shrine farmers’ market, said he has also experienced a decrease in sales this semester.“It is one half of last year’s gross income,” Scott said.A farmers’ market on Vermont Avenue and Adams Boulevard seems to be experiencing the same problems as the Shrine farmers’ market. Most of the vendors are seeing less and less business, but still, they say the economy is at fault rather than competing markets.“Each year it seems to get slower and slower because of the economy,” said Luis Buenrostro, who sells produce.The market’s manager, Kimberly Edwards, said she also believes the decline in profits is because people do not have the money to shop at farmers’ markets. She said she does not think she is losing clients to other farmers’ markets in the area.“A lot of these customers who come here … they follow us where we go,” Edwards said. “Our business is slow because of the recession, and farmers’ markets are more expensive than the store.”Edwards added that USC drives the market, even though the Trojan Fresh Market is a more convenient option.“We got a lot of people from USC coming here,” Edwards said. “We see doctors, students, teachers … We get a big variety of people from USC.”But Meera Dahyabhai, marketing chair for the student group Environment First, which is involved in the Trojan Fresh Market, said she thinks the competition has affected Hospitality’s farmers’ market.“The revenue patterns have overall decreased due to competition with other markets,” she said.Still, she said she does not think the increasing number of markets is a bad thing.“It’s all about reaching the same goal,” Dahyabhai said. “The main goal is to fund that idea of organic and fresh products to support local vendors.”last_img read more
