Another Coal Plant Closes in Upper Midwest

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Wisconsin Public Radio:An energy company is shuttering another coal-fired power plant in Wisconsin. WEC Energy is closing its plant in Green Bay, and it comes on the heels of the company closing another facility in Pleasant Prairie.The Green Bay closure isn’t a surprise, the company announced its plans to shutter the plant last year. But now the company has come out with an updated timeline, saying after 90 years of operation, the Pulliam Power Plant in Green Bay will “retire” by the end of 2018. WEC is the parent company of We Energies — which announced earlier this week it will close its plant in Pleasant Prairie — and Wisconsin Public Service, which runs the Pulliam plant.WPS Spokesman Matt Cullen said market forces are also behind the decision to close Pulliam by the end of next year. Low natural gas prices and large-scale solar are making coal less cost effective, Cullen said. He said WEC is making a company-wide effort to move to cleaner energy sources such as solar and wind.“We’re pursuing the purchase from a developer of utility-scale solar. Also, WPS is one of three utilities here in the state who has reached an agreement to purchase the Forward Wind Energy Center down in the Fond Du Lac area.”Cullen said that wind development could generate 57 megawatts of electricity.Forty-six employees work at the Green Bay plant, and Cullen said it’s too early to tell what will happen to those employees once the plant closes.Pulliam, named after J.P. Pulliam, a past president of the company, was built in 1927 and sits at the mouth of the Fox River on the western shore of Green Bay.More: Green Bay’s Pulliam Plant Will ‘Retire’ By End Of 2018 Another Coal Plant Closes in Upper Midwestlast_img read more

Barnwell sparks Guyana Jaguars to massive UDECOTT T10 win

first_img… beat South-Central by 8 wickets at Brian Lara Cricket AcademyBy Brij ParasnathEXPLOSIVE big-hitting has become the norm of modern-day cricket. And while cricket fans have been disappointed in the many low-scoring matches in the current ICC World Cup matches, Guyana Jaguars all-rounder Christopher Barnwell displayed his power stroke-making ability in grand fashion during a fine exhibition of calculated big-hitting against a combined South-Central outfit, in the opening match of the inaugural UDECOTT T10 match, contested at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, on Friday evening.With Guyana Jaguars set 84 runs to win from the allotted 10 overs, the sturdy built Barnwell lighted up the evening skyline with his right-handed pyrotechnics that sent the white ball sailing into orbit and well beyond the boundary markers and into the stands on eight occasions, as he raced to an unbeaten 57 off only 16 deliveries.Barnwell had replaced former West Indies ODIs opener Chandrapaul Hemraj (1×4 off six balls) who departed centre-stage with only five runs to his name. His lofted stroke ended into the hands of Kjorn Ottley off the bowling of T&T’s leg-spinner JonRuss Jagessar.Ottley accepted the catch gleefully just inside the boundary while his teammates and the supportive crowd cheered lustily. The Jaguars were nine for one wicket. And if there were any thoughts of more quick wickets tumbling after the dismissal of left-handed opener Trevon Griffith who joined his partner Hemraj at the team’s hut on the northern side of the iconic stadium, Barnwell dispelled those emotional fantasy with his clean purposeful hitting that hastened the commanding victory with 21 balls remaining.Barnwell was spurred into his big-hitting ways after his DCC clubmate Griffith was bowled by former West Indies Under off-spinner Jyd Goolie for 14 that contained one six and a four off six deliveries. The scoreboard showed that the Jaguars were 20 for 2.Barnwell was joined by captain Leon Johnson and he took a special liking for the floated deliveries from Goolie, whom he smashed for three huge sixes. He repeated a similar feat with three gigantic maximums off T&T’s spinner Mark Deyal, who was introduced at the southern end. Johnson played a watchful role and finished with 12 not out (1×4) off eleven deliveries while Barnwell blazed to a hurricane unbeaten 57, as the Guyanese contingent signalled their intention to win the TT$75 000 first prize in the four-team series.Barnwell’s 50 (1×4, 7×6) was scored off 15 deliveries. His eighth six was the winning stroke after he registered the first fifty of the tournament.The second match between a formidable North-Tobago and Windwards Hurricanes was abandoned without a completed innings when a heavy downpour left the outfield in an unplayable state.Windwards had reached 61 for 6 after 8.3 overs when the deluge forced the players off the field. And although the showers stopped, too much water forced the organisers to abandon play for the rest of the evening.It was a major disappointment for the ardent fans who showed up with the expectation of plenty fireworks from West Indies and T20 superstars Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo and Sunil Narine who were members of the North-Tobago team.Pollard is serving as captain of the team that also includes established players Rayad Emrit, Yannic Cariah, Akeal Hosein, Tion Webster and Khary Pierre.The Hurricanes were shocked into disbelief when left-arm spinning all-rounder Akeal Hosein produced a magical spell to claim four wickets in his two-over spell without conceding a single run and left the visitors stunned at 5 runs for 4 wickets after three overs.Hosein bowled West Indies T20 player Andre Fletcher with a quicker one with the first ball of the match and then shattered the stumps of Kavem Hodge three balls later. It was a sensational start for the QPCC player, as he repeated the feat in his second over and third of the innings.He bowled opener Desron Maloney for a solitary single and then forced Dillon Douglas to offer a simple return catch. He left the arena completely dumbfounded as their dreams of a positive start against the star-studded North-Tobago outfit became a nightmarish experience.Junior Henry and Ryan John averted further disaster and stitched together an 18-run fifth-wicket partnership. Henry made eight runs off eleven balls before Ryan Emrit sent him marching forlornly to the pavilion, caught by wicketkeeper Joshua DaSilva.John was joined by West Indies Under-19 player  Alick Athanaze and together they restored some respectability to the proceedings. John struck three boundaries off 17 balls while Athanaze did better with four fours off nine deliveries.They featured in an encouraging 31-run sixth-wicket stand when John, the top-scorer with 25; exited by offering Terrence Hinds a return catch. Athanaze was not-out on 20 while Keron Cottoy was undefeated on 7 when the showers thundered down and eventually forced the abandonment.There were four matches yesterday and the final will be contested this afternoon at the same venue.last_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 69-65 loss to Duke

first_imgOMAHA, Neb. — It wasn’t like Syracuse’s previous three games. Normally, its opponents struggle to break its 2-3 zone and high-powered offenses were often left scrambling. But this time, when the potent zone limited Duke offensively, the Blue Devils were still able to find a way to down the Orange.In the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament, No. 11 seed Syracuse’s (23-14, 8-10 Atlantic Coast) magic ran out to its conference rival and No. 2 seed Duke (29-7, 13-5) on Friday night at CenturyLink Center, falling to the Blue Devils, 69-65. The Syracuse zone held Duke’s shooters to an abysmal 19.2 percent mark from 3, but SU’s 16 turnovers and inability to stop Duke’s big men proved to be the difference maker.Here are three reactions from the Orange’s season-ending loss.Battle carries first-half loadOutside of Syracuse’s play-in game against Arizona State, Tyus Battle was a non-factor offensively in the first half of the Orange’s other two NCAA Tournament games. In the opening frame of SU’s wins against TCU and Michigan State, the guard combined for a 1-for-11 performance from the field with three points. Normally, he took over the game in the second half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn Friday night against Duke, Battle hit his first 3 just two minutes in. He kept attacking, finishing the first half with a trio of 3s. Battle led all players with 11 points on 50 percent shooting and added an alley-oop to Paschal Chukwu in the first 20 minutes.Battle’s first-half performance was not replicated by his teammates, most notably Frank Howard and Oshae Brissett — Syracuse’s other two main scoring threats. The duo combined for a poor 1-of-12 shooting from the field, including two missed dunks from Brissett, and turned the ball over four times. Brissett did add six rebounds and Howard three assists, but they struggled to finish.Last week in the opening frame against MSU, Howard and Brissett had three baskets apiece. In the first half on Friday, they were nearly nonexistent.Syracuse’s errors prove fatalIn a close contest like Friday night, each possession is as crucial as the next. And as Duke turned up the offensive pressure and pushed in transition, Syracuse for the most part matched the Blue Devils. But going up against Duke’s 2-3 zone also led to multiple errors by the Orange. Seven different times SU attempted an alley-oop that ended in a missed target or SU just catching the ball and restarting its offense. Normally, it resulted in a Duke transition.After one missed alley-oop from Frank Howard to Paschal Chukwu, Duke’s Grayson Allen took possession and attacked the rim. As he drove into the paint, he kicked the ball out to Gary Trent Jr. in the corner, who swished the open 3.Pair that with Syracuse’s 16 total turnovers and Duke took advantage, scoring 18 points off turnovers to SU’s eight. With Syracuse down four and under seven minutes remaining, Bourama Sidibe bobbled a pass. He lost the ball and Duke retained possession. Seconds later, Marvin Bagley III hit a mid-range jumper to put Duke up six.On a night where Syracuse kept it close, turning the ball over and questionable alley-oop passes kept making the slim margin seem much larger than it was.Duke misses its 3s but Marvin Bagley III keeps game aliveIn Syracuse’s previous three tournament games, it had not surrendered more than 56 points. The Orange limited three teams that normally averaged over 80 points a game well under their averages. On Friday night, the zone worked again, as Duke shot an abysmal 19.2 percent from 3.Some of the time, Duke had open 3s, much like it did when the Blue Devils last played the Orange. But the collapsing zone and constant pressure threw off a Duke team that shoots 39 percent from beyond the arc. Grayson Allen and Gary Trent Jr., Duke’s two main sharpshooters, combined to shoot 5-for-22, unable to pull away from the Orange.But on a night where its shooters struggled, ACC Player and Rookie of the Year Marvin Bagley III stepped up and dominated. After a first half where Bagley did not have a single rebound, he attacked the rim in the latter frame. Of his eight total rebounds, seven of them came on the offensive glass. And those second-chance points often resulted in points for the freshman.Syracuse had no answer to stopping Bagley. He was much more physical than the Orange defenders. On multiple occasions, he caught the ball in the paint and backed his defender down into an easy lay-in or dunk. Other times, an alley-oop from near the 3-point line ended in a poster dunk from Bagley. One time, he slammed the ball over Chukwu, and another time came over Sidibe.The zone worked yet again for Syracuse, making Duke work around the arc. But when its shooters struggled, Bagley was there to keep the Blue Devils’ lead intact.
