Governor Wolf, Senator Yudichak, & Rep. Pashinski Announce $125,000 in State Funds for Solomon Creek Flood Wall

first_img Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Wolf, Senator John Yudichak, and Representative Eddie Day Pashinski announced that the state would commit $125,000 for a temporary fix to the Solomon Creek flood wall in Wilkes-Barre to try to prevent further erosion until a full repair can be made.“I am glad the state is able to support the temporary fix to the Solomon Creek flood wall,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “My administration will continue to monitor this situation closely and work with local and federal officials for a long-term solution to this serious issue. I want to sincerely thank Senator Yudichak, Representative Pashinski and Mayor George for their swift response and commitment to ensuring the safety of Wilkes-Barre’s citizens.”In the evening of December 9, 2016, approximately 40 feet of the Solomon Creek flood wall along Brook Street collapsed.  The immediate short term solution consists of repairing the failure location with a moment slab style wall for a distance of approximately 48’ between existing wall construction joints. This will eliminate the risk of more of the wall collapsing.“Mayor George has worked non-stop to find funding to repair the damaged Solomon Creek flood wall, and with the Governor’s release of $125,000 in state funds, we are one big step closer to addressing the long-standing problems related to Solomon Creek,” said State Senator Yudichak.“I would like to sincerely thank Gov. Wolf for his commitment to assist Sen. Yudichak and me to secure much needed funding for the Solomon Creek emergency,” said Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski. “I am pleased to announce the Gov. along with the House and Senate Appropriations staff have released $125,000 to jump start the construction necessary to protect the residents and businesses in the South Wilkes-Barre area.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf, Senator Yudichak, & Rep.

Baseball wins weekend series against Sun Devils

first_imgJunior outfielder Matthew Acosta’s five RBIs led USC to victory over ASU Friday. (Tucker Judkins/Daily Trojan) Sophomore infielder Spencer Torkelson gave ASU a 1-0 lead on a homer in the third inning. Sabol’s three hits added to the 14-hit attack for the Trojans, but Acosta led the charge with four, also collecting five RBIs on the night. The Trojans kicked off the weekend strong with a 10-6 victory Friday night. USC jumped out to an early 3-0 lead on RBI singles by junior outfielder Matthew Acosta in the first and third innings. Junior pitcher Chris Clarke closed out the victory with two scoreless innings in relief. Lunn credited the performance as a team effort. “[Scoring insurance runs] makes the pitchers way more at ease,” head coach Dan Hubbs said. “They know that they can make a mistake and can overcome it. It allowed [junior pitcher] Connor [Lunn] to pitch with a lot more freedom.” USC will take on Cal State Fullerton at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Dedeaux Field. The 14-14 Titans defeated USC 10-4 in March, but Hubbs is hopeful after Sunday’s promising performance. USC won two out of three games against No. 7 Arizona State over the weekend. Despite the loss, the series victory against the Sun Devils was a positive sign for the Trojans, who move to 12-18 overall and 5-7 in conference play.   When ASU made the score 6-3 in the top of the sixth, USC scored 3 more runs in the bottom half. Junior outfielder Brady Shockey scored when ASU catcher redshirt sophomore Sam Ferri made a throwing error on a double steal. Acosta doubled home Sabol, then stole home when Ferri tried to catch sophomore infielder Ben Ramirez stealing second. “I was just trying to pound the zone … let them get themselves out,” Lunn said. “[The defense] is huge, it gives me time to relax and just focus, and I know that the guys behind me will do what they do.” The Trojans battled. Owens’ 2-run single in the fifth, sophomore first baseman Jamal O’Guinn’s RBI double in the sixth and Owens’ first career home run in the seventh made it an 11-7 ballgame. On Saturday, the Trojans came back from a small deficit early to win 7-3. An opposite field home run by Perez in the seventh gave the Trojans their 10th run of the game. ASU’s 3-run homer in the ninth was too little too late, as junior pitcher Austin Manning shut the door. center_img However, the lead was short-lived. Sabol tripled home Perez to knot things up at 1. Redshirt junior catcher CJ Stubbs followed with his third home run of the year — a moonshot to left field — for the 3-1 lead. It was one of the longest home runs hit by any Trojan all season. Lunn held one of the nation’s top offenses in check with 6.1 innings of 3-run ball. He was assisted often by incredible defense, highlighted by a SportsCenter-worthy home run robbery by Acosta in the third inning to steal 3 runs from ASU. The red-hot Acosta homered again in the seventh inning. As soon as he hit it, Acosta stopped, watched it sail and gave an emphatic bat flip before breaking into his home run trot. Perez tied the game with a triple in the second, but ASU took off from there. A 3-run home run from Torkelson helped the Sun Devils build an 11-3 lead.   Sophomore pitcher Kyle Hurt started for USC, struggling through 3.1 innings and allowing 5 earned runs. Freshman pitcher Chandler Champlain allowed 4 runs in the fifth inning but would settle down to shut ASU out the rest of the way. After Stubbs struck out with the bases loaded in the ninth, O’Guinn walked to bring the winning run to the plate in Acosta, who lined out to right field to end the rally. A home run by ASU sophomore infielder Alika Williams tied it up in the sixth. Acosta homered in the same inning to put the Trojans up 4-3. An error on a bunt by senior infielder Chase Bushor scored Ramirez, and an RBI single by freshman designated hitter Clay Owens gave USC a 3-run lead. “Right off the bat, I thought it was gone,” Acosta said. “And then I was like, ‘I’ve got a chance for that,’ … I found the wall, got a good jump and I got that.” ASU cut its deficit to 2 in the top of the fourth, but USC fired back in the bottom half with 3 more runs. After senior infielder Brandon Perez hit an RBI triple and junior outfielder Blake Sabol provided an RBI groundout, Acosta again drove in a run on a single for a 6-1 Trojan lead. On Sunday, the Sun Devils avoided the sweep by defeating USC 11-8. Whenever ASU chipped into the lead, USC responded to keep the game out of reach. ASU took a 2-0 lead in the first inning before Stubbs answered with his second home run of the series, a solo shot. “We know they’re good,” Hubbs said Sunday. “If we have at bats like we did today and all weekend … we’re going to be in good shape.”last_img read more
