Opposition to excavation in Terry Hershey Park grows

HOUSTON—Just minutes from the Katy Freeway, Terry Hershey Park seems a world away.

“It’s kind of an oasis in what I call the concrete jungle,” said Bill Rustam. “There’s an opportunity to get away from the noise of traffic and just kind of enjoy the trees, the animals and the flora and fauna.”

An avid cyclist, Bill Rustam lives nearby. He’s also part of a grassroots effort called Save the Forest, which opposes a plan by the Flood Control District to excavate an area along Buffalo Bayou between Eldrige Parkway and Wilcrest Drive to reduce flooding.

“The plan, as I understand it, is to build detention basins along the south side of the bayou, which would involve essentially taking out the trees and leveling them, and creating basins where water could be detained,” said Rustam.

The county commission has approved a $250,000 study to better understand what’s here and how it could be affected, but members of Save the Forest say unless the plan is stopped, much of what makes this place so special could be lost.

Some trees would come down, absolutely, but then we’d put more in,” said Precinct 3 Commissioner Steve Radack.

He pointed to the opposite side of the bayou, where he says a similar effort has decreased flooding in the area while increasing property value.

“The fact is, it’s owned by Harris County Flood Control District. It has an intended purpose and that is to help with drainage and help prevent flooding,” said Radack.

“There’s a real issue with flooding, and it needs to be addressed,” said Rustam, “But we do think there should be a balance, and the community input on this is very important.

    Greenland's Narsarauq Airport is a traveler's nightmare. Planes approach the runway through a fjord and need to make a 90-degree turn to line up on the runway. With the seemingly constant turbulence, making a plane turn 90 degrees is no easy task. It's extremely difficult to judge how gusts of wind might direct the plane. Even though a pilot might need to make some last-minute adjustments to avoid being pushed into one of the valley walls, overcorrecting methods could backfire. Not to mention, there's also the risk of icebergs drifting into the airplane's path.

McKay obviously noticed this and moved quickly to add some new faces around the training ground, most notably in the form of Andreas Cornelius and Steven Caulker. These two signings, though both young, will add some much needed quality to the squad, with Cornelius scoring 18 goals for FC Copenhagen last season as well as playing in Europe and for the Denmark national side. Caulker has similar experience and everyone was shocked that Cardiff managed to persuade the England international to join their quest to beat the drop, especially after his impressive form for Tottenham Hotspur last season. At £4.2m and £2.8m respectively, these two players would be your best bets if you are adamant on choosing a Cardiff City player this season, but with the club continually linked with players like Etienne Capoue (Toulouse) and Anthony Reveillere (free agent) and with money clearly available at the club, keep an eye out for any signings over the next few weeks.

Mike Carp singled to right to put runners on the corners, then Kuroda fanned Daniel Nava for the first out of the inning. Stephen Drew hit a grounder to Overbay that looked to be an inning-ending double play, but Overbay made a bad throw to Eduardo Nunez, allowing Ortiz to score and the runners to be safe at first and second. “I just didn’t finish the throw,” Overbay said. “It ended up costing us. Those are big situations. Kuroda did a great job of getting outs and keeping us in the game. I hate when it ends up like that and we get into situations that we didn’t need to — just get an out even if we didn’t get the double play. It’s an easy double play. Should have been.”
