Robert Lovell FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY – Chandler Anderson’s third-inning grand slam lifted the Utah baseball team to a 6-3 victory over BYU on Tuesday evening, giving the Utes the series victory over the Cougars.Down 1-0 after BYU scored in the top of the third with the help of two Utah errors, the Utes came roaring back in the bottom of the inning with five runs to take the lead. Shea Kramer led off the inning with a double down the left field line that just caromed off the third baseman’s glove. DaShawn Keirsey, Jr., and Rykker Tom were both hit by pitches to load the bases for Oliver Dunn, who walked to drive in the Utes first run. After a pitching change, Anderson stepped to the plate and hit his first home run of the year to give Utah a 5-1 lead.BYU scored a run in the fourth after a leadoff walk and RBI triple as a fly ball was lost in the sun. The Utes added an insurance run in the sixth, after Dominic Foscalina doubled to lead off the inning and Wade Gulden and Matt Richardson both drew walks. Kramer hit a sacrifice fly to send home Foscalina as the Utes took a 6-2 lead.BYU rallied in the top of the ninth with a pair of singles for a run with two outs before reliever Trenton Stoltz ended the game on a ground out.Riley Pierce pitched the first inning for the Utes before yielding to Spencer Kevin Johnson, who had a career-high eight strikeouts over four innings in his second win of the season, allowing two runs (one earned) and four hits with two walks. Kyle Robeniol, who has spent most of the season sidelined with an injury, pitched two scoreless innings with one strikeout and one hit. Jacob Rebar allowed one run over 1 1/3 innings pitched while Stoltz threw the final 2/3 of an inning to close out win.Utah (13-32) won three of the four games against BYU this season to win three points towards the Deseret First Duel rivalry series. The Utes clinched the overall victory earlier this season, with baseball’s three points putting the final score at 24.5-13.5.Utah hits the road this weekend for a three-game series at Oregon beginning on Friday, May 11.

HOBOKEN AND JERSEY CITY — While Jersey City’s CitiBike bikesharing system allows riders to head into Manhattan and back, Hoboken went a different way three years ago, trying out the new Hudson BikeShare. The city was criticized as this meant users couldn’t park their bikes in Jersey City or head to Manhattan. And docking stations promised by BikeShare in 2015 in other towns failed to materialize by 2017.Now, other towns in Hudson County such as Bayonne and Weehawken have signed up, and at last, Hoboken and Jersey City may work together to link systems.Hoboken residents got an email Thursday saying that Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and new Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla are in discussions regarding the expansion of Hudson Bike Share into Jersey City and CitiBike into Hoboken.“As neighbors with shared borders, we want to provide our residents and visitors with more choices and access to the benefits of both programs,” said Fulop.“Expanding our bike share programs will create important links between Hoboken and Jersey City and improve the resiliency of our regional transportation system,” said Bhalla.The potential expansion may include the addition of three stations in each city. Members of the public are invited to complete an online survey to provide input on possible locations for new bike share stations. The online survey is available at www.hobokennj.gov/bikesharesurvey.
Schools Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Taylor, right, with Ocean City High School teacher Amy Andersen in 2018. Ocean City Schools Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Taylor said in a letter Friday that she will retire from the district on Aug. 1, after 15 years at the helm.Here is the letter in its entirety:April 16, 2021Dear School Community:As superintendent of the Ocean City School District, I have had the privilege and good fortune to work with a progressive and supportive Board of Education, a knowledgeable, student-centered administrative team, and dedicated collaborative faculty and staff, who have the best interest of students as their top focus.All these individuals – my colleagues – have challenging jobs that require hard work and ingenuity to operate effectively and efficiently in a comprehensive school system.I can say without hesitation that these individuals are highly skilled educators and staff, whom I respect and admire as we endeavor in making this a preeminent School District.After a great deal of thoughtful consideration, I have submitted to the School Board my notice of intent to retire as of August 1, 2021. From my first day as a teacher through the last day of my career, I never waver in my focus on who is most important – students.Every day I champion children, from witnessing them learning, planning for their successes, tying their shoes in the hallways, giving high-fives, attending their games and performances, celebrating accomplishments, cheering them on to be the best that they can be, to sending them personal notes to recognize the differences they made in our community.I will really miss the students.Therefore, it is fitting that following my retirement, I intend to continue as an advocate for students in professional avenues.Additionally, I want to spend more time with my family and my beautiful grandchildren.The community support for a top-quality education program for their children and those who live in our community is outstanding.During my 15-year tenure as the Ocean City Superintendent of Schools, we have been through an ebb and flow of significant district matters. Without a community like ours, it would have been nearly impossible to manage and lead through those unprecedented and unpredictable days.From left, Schools Superintendent Kathleen Taylor, freshmen Lane Michael and Valentina Asenov, Athletic Director Geoffrey Haines and Principal Dr. Matt Jamison in 2019.I am most appreciative of the OCEF, OCPTA, parent committees, booster clubs, the City of Ocean City, OCPD, OCFD, OCFPL, OCHM, the Tabernacle, professional services, and the many community organizations for their long-standing partnerships with the School District.Throughout my tenure, I have experienced levels of support most superintendents can only hope for during their careers.Serving at the helm, I am proud of the countless number of accomplishments that happened in this School District.The most notable ones are enacting a strategic plan focused on equity, improving student academic performances, starting full-day preschool, stabilizing student enrollment, expanding college and career options, and further establishing college and university partnerships.In addition, there has been an implementation of adaptable technologies and innovative programs, an emphasis on personalized learning and educating the whole child, our sports, visual and performing arts programs and activities have been expanded, safety and security measures have been enhanced, and a strong, dedicated focus has been placed on mental health supports and services for our PK-12 students.These achievements provide scaffolds for students to continue to reach out as far and as high as they can. They also are representative samples of our District mission of “Committed to Excellence.”Because of this commitment it has been my most distinct honor to serve this multiple state and national award-winning School District.It has also been an honor to work with outstanding, inspirational colleagues throughout New Jersey and in many other states as well.Working with them on solving problems, striving for academic achievement of all students, promoting women as educational leaders, serving on committees and task forces at the local, county, regional, and state levels, we have made an impactful difference in education and in students’ lives.I want to thank also all those connected with the New Jersey Association for School Administrators and New Jersey School Boards Association for their support, guidance, leadership in school matters and for their friendship.Since I have been 4 years old, I have only known school. Starting my educational career in September 1973, I have been part of a remarkable evolution in American education focused on equal rights and equal access for all students, while endeavoring to close the achievement gaps.During these forty-eight years, I have not only had an active part in sweeping educational reforms, at times, I have led the way. For my leadership, I was recognized as the 2018 New Jersey Superintendent of the Year.A profound change is occurring now in education due to the pandemic’s impact on schooling. Colleagues, associations, consortiums, and education departments will continue to lead the way in responding to this seismic change by creating a more flexible, equitable and resilient school environment designed to encourage each student’s constructive curiosity in exploring personal opportunities to learn.Therefore, retiring now is a perfect time. The School District is ready for another visionary superintendent, one who can continue to lead this district, continue to challenge the status quo, and maximize the benefits of this evolutionary time for the next generation of students.Finally, I want to give a sincere thank you to current board member Jim Bauer, who served on the Board who hired me fifteen years ago.There is a special place in my heart for deceased Board members, Audrey Eichenberger, Charlene Zoerb, and Tom Oves, whose life mission were to champion students — and they did every day.It has been a privilege to have a special professional partnership with each of the five Board Presidents, who I worked with closely in sharing the stewardship responsibilities of leading this School District.And a deep, heartfelt thank you to former and present School Board members during my tenure — our beliefs in the sanctity of children is the reason the Ocean City School District is a designated Lighthouse District.I am truly fortunate to have had the opportunity to lead this School District and deeply grateful to be able to finish my educational career in the top-notched School District of Ocean City.Sincerely,Kathleen W. Taylor, Ed.D.Schools Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Taylor raises her arms in victory for the graduates and their families in July 2020.

Notre Dame will invest $6.5 million in campus energy conservation measures over the next two years, University president Fr. John Jenkins and Executive Vice President John Affleck-Graves announced last week. The initiative, known as Energy Conservation Measures II, will focus on improving lighting, heating and cooling in 55 campus buildings, according to a press release from the Office of Sustainability. It will target buildings that have the most opportunities for saving energy, Rachel Novick, education and outreach program manager for the Office of Sustainability, said. “The University has been working on efficiency renovations in several buildings, so this is the next step in that process,” Novick said. “It’s part of the continuous process of finding opportunities to save energy on campus, and changes will be implemented right away.” Novick said a major focus of the new initiative is improving lighting both indoors and outdoors, and this goal will be reflected in the upcoming transition to high-efficiency fluorescent lighting in buildings and the replacement of over 100 outdoor lampposts with LED lights. Additionally, LED lights will power exit signs and new lampposts installed on campus. The initiative will also include the improvement of the heating and cooling systems on campus. Novick said many of the currently are old fashioned and energy-consuming systems will be replaced with adjustable systems that use less energy. “There are a lot of opportunities to improve efficiency behind the scenes,” Novick said. “For instance, the pumps and motors that run chemical equipment on campus will be replaced with higher efficiency models.” Novick also said the University’s utilities department is conducting a careful analysis of the fume hoods used in laboratories on campus. “Most people don’t know that the hoods use a huge amount of energy,” Novick said. “There is an opportunity to reduce the amounts of air used in the hoods, which would decrease energy consumption.” While the ultimate goal of making campus as energy-efficient as possible reflects the environmental consciousness of the University, Novick maintains that the $6.5 million initiative is a worthwhile financial investment. “It’s really important that the University as a Catholic institution reduces its environmental footprint,” Novick said. “But it’s also a great investment because all the money put into the initiative will come back in the form of energy savings in six or seven years.” Novick said the initiative is projected to yield over $1 million in annual energy savings and reduce campus carbon dioxide emissions by 14,900 tons each year, and the investment will eventually benefit students beyond simply conserving energy. “The energy savings will lower the University’s overhead, which will allow them to provide more services to students by paying less energy bills,” Novick said. “This investment makes a lot of sense.” Although the initiative includes several small-scale projects, Novick said the combined effects would accumulate. “Each individual project and building is a relatively small slice of the initiative, but it all really adds up,” Novick said.
