Dearborn, Rush Counties receive ‘Clean Water Indiana’ grants

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Dearborn and Rush Counties are among 25 Indiana counties to receive Clean Water Indiana Grants from the ISDA. Dearborn County will get $107,000 and Rush will receive $4,912.50.“We’re starting to see a significant reduction in the amount of sediment and nutrients prevented from entering Indiana’s waterways, as a result of Clean Water Indiana,” said Melissa Rekeweg, ISDA interim director. “There is still much work to be done to improve our water quality, and these grants are critical to that effort.”While the grant proposals vary in scope, each project was designed to support the local conservation efforts of Indiana’s SWCDs, whether it’s installing a filter strip, planting cover crops or hiring staff to provide technical assistance, education and training. Collaboration was also encouraged as part of the competitive grant process, and many of the districts will use these funds to leverage additional resources through cost-share programs and other partnership opportunities.last_img read more

AITEO Cup Round of 32: Defending Champions Start Strong As Delta State Teams Bow…

first_imgRivers Angels Technical Adviser Edwin Okon has expressed delight at his side’s emphatic 5-0 victory over Delta Babes in the AITEO Cup Round of 32 on Wednesday at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt.Amarachi Ojinma scored twice while Chinaza Uchendu, Patience Kalu, Cecilia Nku contributed one goal each to ensure an easy start for the Jewel of Rivers in their quest to defend the title.Okon believes they could have even scored more.“I am happy because playing an amateur team like this isn’t an easy task,” the former Super Falcons coach said. “We were in a hurry to score in the first half which made us miss so many chances.”He, however, pointed out that regardless of the result, progressing to the Round of 16 is what matters the most.“All we needed was qualification, even if it had ended 1-0, qualifying was the target,” Okon added.Visiting Delta Babes were no match for the Angels as they could only manage two shots on target in the match.Elsewhere in Lagos, another Delta State team kissed the tournament goodbye as FC Robo Queens shocked Delta Queens 1-0 to book a place in the next round.Esther Ndubuisi’s goal in the second half of that encounter made the difference.Speaking to the media after the match, Delta Queens Right Back, Lilian Cole said, “I had so much expectation before the match based on our excellent run in the league but the outcome of the match actually confirms that there are no underdogs especially in women’s football.”Delta Queens who finished on top of Group B in the regular season of the Nigeria Women Premier League still has a shot at a title though as they now concentrate fully on the NWPL Super Four tournament scheduled for next month.“I think our focus now should be on the Super Four as this defeat will certainly spur us to claim the title as a compensation,” Cole added.The defender represented Bayelsa Queens in last season’s AITEO Cup and was the one who missed the vital penalty kick which led to Rivers Angels emerging as champions.AITEO Cup Round of 32 RESULTSRivers Angels 5-0 Delta BabesAdamawa Queens 0-1 Edo QueensFC Robo Queens 1-0 Delta QueensConfluence Queens 3-0 Invincible Queens (walk over)Beautiful Tours 3-1 Moje QueensBayelsa Queens Feeders 4-0 Fortress LadiesPelican Stars 1-0 Young Talents 99TEAMS IN THE AITEO CUP ROUND OF 16Ben Women FC, Ibom Angels, Jokodolu Babes, Sure Babes, Sunshine Queens, Nasarawa Amazons, Osun Babes, Abia Angels, Bayelsa Queens, Edo Queens, FC Robo Queens, Confluence Queens, Beautiful Tours, Rivers Angels, Bayelsa United Feeders and Pelican Stars.Audio Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/OKON-AUG-31.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.RelatedWomen’s AITEO Cup final preview: Badly wounded Rivers Angels seek healing in JosOctober 16, 2017In “Nigeria”Ibom Angels, Rivers Angels Progress into Quarterfinals as Olori Babes Suffer Autocrash SetbackJune 21, 2019In “FA Cup”AITEO Cup: Rivers Angels Team Manager Plays Down Favourites’ Tag [AUDIO]August 29, 2017In “NWL”last_img read more

Giants ‘don’t know’ if they can pass on pass rusher with No. 6 pick, team source says

first_img“Yeah, there’s a lot of them,” Shurmur said. “Certainly (among) the top-tier guys that everybody is predicting to go (early in the draft). I still watch my son (Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur) get sacked by all those SEC pass rushers, so I’ve seen it firsthand.”Well, there’s an urgency to get better at all positions. There’s quarterbacks on other teams playing at roughly the age that Eli is. The important thing for us is to make our team better.” The Giants posted 30 sacks in 2018, the second-lowest total in the NFL.New York finished last year with a 5-11 record. Giants GM again defends Eli Manning: He’s ‘still a quality NFL quarterback’ The Giants could select a pass rusher with the No. 6 pick in the 2019 draft.New York is rumored to eyeing a quarterback to replace 38-year-old Eli Manning, but one team source says the Giants “don’t know” if they can pass on a top defensive player. “There are a ton of great defensive players in this draft,” the source told SportsNet earlier this week. “As much as we need a young quarterback, I honestly don’t know how we can pass on one of the pass rushers at 6.”Giants coach Pat Shurmur thinks there’s no shortage of top pass-rushing talent in this year’s draft. The offensive-minded coach can’t deny how impactful pressuring the opposing team’s quarterback can be. Related Newslast_img read more
