The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) granted $3 million to San Mateo County to improve the Colma Creek Flood Control Channel recently. Upgrades will protect the City of South San Francisco from tributary flooding, mitigate the effects of sea level rise beyond the year 2060, and double the channel’s level of flood protection to 100-year events.The project encompasses sediment and debris removal, repair or replacement of damaged culverts, and restoration of impacted native vegetation within the project limits.The $4.2 million scheme is funded by a $3 million hazard mitigation grant from FEMA, with non-federal sources covering the remaining $1.2 million.FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program helps states, territories, federally-recognized tribes, local communities and certain private, non-profit organizations become more resilient to potential infrastructure damage and reduce future disaster costs.
Batesville held its own, but could not come up with wins against the #5 and #8 ranked 3A teams in the state. Working without #3, Kim Tidman, The Lady Dogs could not muster up the firepower to keep the ranked teams out of system enough to capitalize on points.‘We played well, but Kim is one of our go to weapons offensively and to miss her on a day like today was a challenge. But it did show that we do have the talent to play with the states best. We played with mostly Freshman and sophomores on the court at one point and were competitive.’ Batesville Coach Jody Thomas.Brebeuf over Batesville: 25-12, 25-19, 25-18Wapahani over Batesville: 25-16, 25-15, 25-21Tuesday (10-14) will be the last home game of the season and Senior Night. 5 PM JV start time with the recognition of our 5 senior players and one senior manager in between matches.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Jody Thomas.
Italian striker Mario Balotelli is confident the Azzurri can make the Confederations Cup final after starting the tournament with a 2-1 win over Mexico.The AC Milan forward proved to be the match winner for the Italians, after Javier Hernandez had earlier equalised following Andrea Pirlo’s opener.And following the final whistle, the 22-year-old spoke of his happiness of recording a first-up victory, despite running into trouble with the referee.“It was a great game, a great feeling and a wonderful crowd. I don’t care about the referee, the important thing is that we won. That’s all,” he told Rai Sport.“If we win the next game, then we can progress. It would be wonderful to play here in the final and we will do everything to get there, it doesn’t matter who it is against.“Do we have what it takes to reach the final? I think we really do.” Balotelli’s yellow card for his celebration puts him in danger of suspension trouble, with two cautions leading to a one-game ban.But that was news to Balotelli.“I didn’t know there was this rule about the two bookings leading to a suspension in this tournament. Next time I won’t do it.”Meanwhile, Mexico coach Jose Manuel de la Torre said he was disappointed with the result after his team ‘controlled’ the match.“We faced a great team with very good players. We knew we had to contain them and play directly through the midfield,” he told reporters. “We had a lot of moves when we were in good positions. I believe we could have had better luck. Of course nobody likes to lose.“We hated losing the game like this, so near the end and after we controlled the game.”
