Governor seeks major disaster declaration from president in wake of Irene

first_imgGovernor Peter Shumlin today requested a major disaster declaration from President Barack Obama for public assistance to help with infrastructure repairs in all Vermont counties except Grand Isle, and individual assistance for homeowners and businesses in counties where early assessments have been completed. Because assessments continue in some counties ‘ particularly in hard-hit southern Vermont ‘ a supplemental request will follow to add those areas. The public assistance request encompasses road, bridge and rail damage in Addison, Bennington, Caledonia, Chittenden, Essex, Franklin, Lamoille, Orange, Orleans, Rutland, Washington, Windham and Windsor counties. The initial individual declaration includes Chittenden, Washington, Rutland, and Windsor counties. It is expected that a supplemental request will add other counties, such as Windham and Orange, as assessors continue to tally the damage across Vermont from Tropical Storm Irene. Those additional requests will be added as quickly as possible. ‘We need to get the federal assistance approved and into the state as quickly as possible,’ Gov. Shumlin said. He noted that the state has already received an Emergency Declaration for Federal Assistance, which provided immediate assistance to begin getting emergency disaster relief efforts in place. Today’s response begins a more formal process of seeking full assistance for roads, bridges, homeowners and businesses, and other relief work. ‘The President and FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate have pledged the full support of the federal government to help Vermont recover from the devastation left in the storm’s wake,’ Gov. Shumlin said. ‘We will begin moving forward with this declaration request and add the additional counties as the assessments are completed.’ Governor Shumlin said he is optimistic that the White House would approve the declaration quickly. If approved, the public assistance would provide a federal match for work on roads, bridges and other public infrastructure damaged in the flooding and winds of Irene. The individual assistance would help homeowners and businesses cover the costs of repairs, temporary housing  rental, replacement of essential household items, medical and other disaster-related needs, and other needs that resulted from the storm.  Source: Governor’s office. 9.1.2011last_img read more

Anthony Joshua is finished after Andy Ruiz Jr. humbling, Tyson Fury says

first_imgTyson Fury believes Anthony Joshua is “finished” after he was sensationally dethroned by Andy Ruiz Jr. in New York.Joshua was stopped in the seventh round by Ruiz at Madison Square Garden on June 1 after being knocked down four times by the unfancied challenger. The Brit is set to get the opportunity to reclaim his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles in a rematch with Ruiz, but Fury thinks his compatriot’s best days are behind him.MORE: Watch behind-the-scenes footage of Ruiz’s win over Joshua on DAZN”When a man doesn’t want to be there once, he will always do it and it’s hard to come back from,” the former heavyweight champion, who will face Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas on Saturday, told BBC Sport. “He did it that night and I don’t think he will come back from it. Finished.”Ask any top trainer who has been around the sport a lifetime. When he got to the ring I saw he didn’t want to be there.”Everybody thought that man could beat me. In what world could he ever beat me? What were people seeing? I don’t know what people were looking at as I don’t know in what world he could have beaten me.” Riding the wave pic.twitter.com/lUD0Si9gv3— Anthony Joshua (@anthonyfjoshua) June 8, 2019Fury added: “Physically Joshua could out-train everyone. He would break every heart monitor, has probably worn out every treadmill in the gym, smashes the bag, it’s all very unimportant.”Boxing isn’t rocket science and today people are trying to make it a scientist thing. If you can fight, you can fight, if you can’t, you can forget about it. You can eat every protein bar in the world, when you get banged on the chin and panic, it don’t really help you much.”People who don’t understand boxing look at a fat man and think he can’t fight. The best feeling I got from it was the two best-conditioned fighters in the last 20 years have been [Wladimir] Klitschko and Joshua and they both got done by two fat men.”last_img read more
