City moves forward with viewing facility

first_img Share By ABBEY KUNKLESpecial to the PRESSAfter a closed executive session at their last meeting, the South Padre Island Convention and Visitors Advisory Board (CVA) made a recommendation to the City Council to proceed with further planning regarding potential SpaceX viewing sites and a Convention Centre Annex building. Councilman Dennis Stahl further explained the project at the City Council meeting later that afternoon.In the 2015 legislative session, Stahl along with previous City Council Member Julee LaMure lobbied for a change at the state level to allow for Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) funds to be used toward SpaceX and ecotourism related infrastructure. House Bill 1717 was successful, allowing up to 15 percent of the HOT tax collected to be used for these expenses. The City hopes to capitalize on the potential monthly rocket launches, drawing in visitors and providing additional activities to extend their stay on the Island.In early December, with the recommendation of the City Council, council members Stahl and Teresa Metty began participating in a subcommittee to get the ball rolling on ideas for a SpaceX viewing area.Want the whole story?

Collin Sexton’s 29 lead the Cavs past the Rockets

first_img Related TopicsCavsClevelandCleveland CavaliersCollin SextonNBATristan Thompson Cleveland- The Cavaliers returned home to Cleveland early Saturday morning, fresh off a win over the Philadelphia 76ers, knowing they had a short turnaround before taking on the Houston Rockets Saturday night. Houston lost Friday night on the road in Detroit, snapping what was a five game winning streak. The Cavaliers lost their first two attempts at a winning streak by an average of 20 points. The Cavaliers won back to back games for the first time this season, with a 117-108 in front of good home crowd.Cavaliers Coach Larry Drew was very happy for his guys tonight, “We accomplished something that we have not been able accomplish this year, winning two games back-to-back. We beat two good teams.” Drew goes on to talk about the steps this Cavaliers team has taken in the last few weeks, “When I look back at what has transpired this year with this team, we had started playing some pretty good basketball, but we were just coming away empty handed. Now these last couple games we are starting to show we are able to get over the hump.”Saturday night was a different story, one much similar to the formula that was effective vs Philadelphia. Cleveland has started the game with a lot more energy, a trend that started against the Lakers on Wednesday.  The Cavaliers jumped out to a quick 12-6 early on vs Houston, forcing the Rockets into six first quarter turnovers. The Cavaliers carried their strong first quarter into halftime holding a five point lead. Houston seemed out of sorts Saturday night without Chris Paul on the floor, they leaned very heavily on James Harden. Harden scored 24 points in the first half, and finished the game with 40 points.The next closest Rocket was Eric Gordon, who started in place of Paul, finished with 28 points. The Cavaliers defense really put Houston’s role players in difficult spots, limiting them to only one chance most of the night. The Cavaliers out rebounded the Rockets (49-30) behind another double-double from Tristan Thompson (16pts, 20rbds.) While Thompson was the workhorse for the Cavs on the glass, three other Cavaliers (Larry Nance Jr., Kyle Korver, and Jordan Clarkson) had at least five rebounds.Collin Sexton has looked more comfortable lately,  and Saturday was no different. Sexton scored a career high 29 points on ( 14/21) shooting, only making one three pointer. Sexton made the Houston pay all night long, as the rook attacked with aggressiveness from the opening tip. Cavaliers coach Larry Drew has started to notice a change, “I think Collin to open eyes as far as his ability to make shots on the perimeter. I think that’s who Collin is, if you try to take away what you perceive to be a weakness of his he’s going to try and prove you wrong.”The Cavaliers hope to make it three straight on Monday when the Minnesota Timberwolves are in town. Minnesota defeated the Cavaliers the opening week of the season, but both teams are differently ball clubs now. The Timberwolves are still adjusting since the Jimmy Butler trade, but did defeat the Bulls Saturday night 111-96. Corey Perezlast_img read more

UGA players work with Army and Marine instructors

first_imgATHENS, Ga. — Offseason news is usually bad news in college football. The University of Georgia has certainly had its share of disappointing headlines this spring with news of dismissals, transfers and arrests. While the Bulldogs are not alone in the ill news department, issues at other schools are of little consolation to Georgia faithful.What follows is not bad news.On Thursday, offensive lineman Kolton Houston and inside linebacker Ryne Rankin met with reporters to discuss the team’s participation in “The Program.”“The Program” is a team-building exercise run by current and former members of several different military special forces units. Player participation was mandatory and the five Marine and Army instructors worked with the team from 7:00 p.m. until 11:45 p.m. on Saturday night. Five and a half hours later, on Sunday morning, the team had to report to Gabrielsen Natatorium for another round, this time in the pool. The exercises were tough, but according to Houston and Rankin, the results appear to be worth it.Leaders emergeThe team-building exercises highlighted a positive development in leadership for Georgia. With an entirely new defensive coaching staff, the graduation of vocal leader Garrison Smith, the turmoil in the secondary and increased expectations for 2014, the Georgia defense needed someone to step up and take charge. Apparently Ramik Wilson, Amarlo Herrera and Corey Moore answered the call.The instructors at The Program gave group leaders broad tasks and required those leaders to relay instructions to their charges. When the objectives were not met (due in part to the nebulous nature of the instructions), the groups had to repeat the drills, gradually zeroing in on the true nature of the task that the instructors wanted completed.“Definitely for the defensive side it showed that we actually do have some good defensive leaders,” Houston said. “Corey and Amarlo, they really stepped up — and so did Ramik. That was good to see.”Houston knows the value of strong leadership, especially when you are being criticized.“I would say the main three leaders on our offense would probably be David Andrews, Chris Conley and Hutson Mason,” Houston said. “I would say Hutson just sitting around behind Aaron for that long definitely gives him a leadership role and he is our quarterback. And David and Chris have been here, have been through the fire the most and that is what the guys look up to.”Improved CommunicationRegarding the training with the special forces team Houston said, “The communication and the leadership role was definitely the most challenging. Because you had to sit back and listen to one person communicate things and if you didn’t do it the exact way then you would get yelled at and have to start all over from the very beginning.”That sounds almost exactly like how defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt taught practice this spring. There was constant repetition and mistakes were grounds for starting over. Pruitt would have approved.“It helped everybody bond,” Rankin said. “It helped Amarlo, Ramik, Leonard Floyd. J.J. Green was in there talking. It helped everybody just get after each other make them competitive.”The Program also forced group leaders to be more vocal, an attribute that was missing on the defense last year.“Oh that changed,” Rankin said. “Last year everybody didn’t know what to do, didn’t know what to say. This year it’s more vocal and everybody is understanding it. Pruitt just simplified everything. It’s so much simpler. It’s night and day. We knew the plays but there was just so much going on. The plays this year are so much simpler…. I like it a lot better.”“Two years ago the offense was the biggest question and this spring the defense was the biggest question,” Houston said. “They were always getting heat. Especially when you have new coaches it is kind of hard for the guys out there so when this came around those leaders solidified themselves.Walk-on safety Lucas Redd also stood out.“Lucas actually got an award,” Houston said. “They presented two leadership awards and Chris Conley and Lucas got them.”Houston agreed with the award distribution.“I would say the main three leaders on our offense would probably be David Andrews, Chris Conley and Hutson Mason,” Houston said. “I would say Hutson just sitting around behind Aaron for that long definitely gives him a leadership role and he is our quarterback. And David and Chris have been here, have been through the fire the most and that is what the guys look up to.”last_img read more
