This is the third mural produced from the program, which is meant to bring exciting artwork to the area.Flood began working on Aug. 24 on the side of the Thunder Bay Theatre’s warehouse. Four days later, and the work she calls “Together Again” is finished. “It’s based on embrace and community and connections,” said Flood. “So, just reminding everyone to give that passion and that community feeling, which I definitely felt from everyone this week.”Over the past few days, Flood has received praise from members of the community. Executive Director of the Alpena Downtown Development Authority, Anne Gentry said she was amazed with the finished product and is glad they were able to do two murals this summer instead of one. “With everything going on in the world right now, especially with the pandemic, we thought it was more important now than ever to invest in something so bright and colorful that people can drive by and walk by every day,” she said. “We’ve heard a lot of positive comments, as the artist has, from different community members just thanking us for bringing something that’s so joyful to our community in these times.”This will be the last mural for the summer, but Gentry said they’re already looking forward to next year.“We’ll probably do another application process for both artists and downtown locations. We brainstormed, do we want to do a more temporary mural somewhere, do we want to do one location, two locations again next year? We hope to continue bringing more to our community.”The new mural can be found on the Fletcher Street side of the Thunder Bay Theatre warehouse.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena Downtown Development AuthorityContinue ReadingPrevious Driving test safety precautionsNext United Way implements 21-day equity challengelast_img read more

MLB playoffs 2019: Three takeaways from Rays’ convincing wild-card win over Athletics

first_img MLB playoffs 2019: Three takeaways from an improbable Nationals wild-card win There’s really not much more to say, but we’ll still say some things.MLB playoffs 2019: Three takeaways from Rays’ convincing wild-card win over A’sDon’t get it twisted, Charlie Morton is one of the most clutch pitchers in MLBYes, the A’s missed some opportunities in the wild-card game (more on that later) and no, a lot of people don’t know much about Charlie Morton, but over the last three years, Morton has turned into one of the most clutch pitchers in MLB and one of the best in general. Related News The Rays have earned the right to face off with the Astros in the American League Division Series after a 5-1 win over the A’s in the AL wild-card game.Charlie Morton tossed five innings while allowing one unearned run, Yandy Diaz hit two homers and the Rays combined to hit four in total. Morton didn’t have great control Wednesday, but he fought through five innings and only allowed one run which was unearned after a three-base error on a Marcus Semien ground ball. The 35-year-old righty did enough to earn the win and has now come away with victories in three winner-take-all games in the playoffs since 2017.He was the winning pitcher in Game 7 of the ALCS in 2017 as well as Game 7 of the World Series. Since signing with the Astros in 2017, Morton has revitalized his career, going 45-16 and making back-to-back All-Star games. His first year with Tampa Bay has been a great one and he is showing no signs of slowing down with age.Charlie Morton, 79mph Curveball and 96mph Fastball, Overlay. pic.twitter.com/AZOEoId6BV— Rob Friedman (@PitchingNinja) October 3, 2019Missed opportunitiesThe A’s were one of the best-hitting MLB teams all year long. They were eighth in runs scored, 11th in on-base percentage, 10th in slugging and 10th in OPS. They finished fifth in home runs and also showed the ability to string hits together and beat teams if they couldn’t hit the ball out of the park.But Oakland became plagued by a problem late in the season and that problem reared its ugly head again in the wild-card game. While the A’s were OK with runners in scoring postion on the season (.252 batting average), they were abysmal down the stretch finishing the year on a 2-for-46 slump.They struggled again Wednesday, leaving the bases loaded in the first inning and runners on first and third in the fourth. What’s worse though is they had at least a runner on base in every single inning of the game except the ninth and yet they could not score an earned run.The A’s couldn’t figure out how to plate a runner at the end of the year and it cost them.A historic skidThis isn’t funny anymore. MLB playoffs 2019: One reason Athletics, Rays could win World Series The A’s cannot win a winner-take-all game to save their lives. With their loss to the Rays on Wednesday, Oakland has lost nine straight winner-take-all games. What makes it seem even worse though is when you hear the last time the A’s won one.That was in 1973. And again, to make matters worse, six of those nine games have been at home.Again, this isn’t funny anymore.
