    It says breakfast and lunch, and it looks like very healthy and fresh foods. https://www.findpagolf.com/index.php

    This is interesting. On the map link, it says there is a Gingerbread Man Running Company beside Martins on the left, and that the space right beside it is also leased, but does not show who is going into that spot. It shows the only spot available for lease at the end, previously the location of Papa Johns.

    Actually, that is probably a very good location if the prices are reasonable. I could see middle school students walking there instead of Sheetz. Plus, the football game crowd, people from the gym, and shoppers at Martins.

    I used to go to Clarion to their theater. Has anyone else been their recently? OMG! The roof leaks, it smells dirty and musty, and every seat is broken and covered in stains. It was absolutely disgusting. I will never go back.

    It's almost as if that's what the leaders still want, isn't it?

    steelers news

    The fix is always in. The Patriots just happened to win 3 games because of instant replay with the same Ref: "His name is Alberto Riveron, and he is the NFL’s senior vice president of officiating. Whether you agree (Patriots fans) with his call Sunday night robbing Jesse James of a touchdown or not (Steelers fans), Riveron has helped decide three victories for New England just this season. This is not to accuse Riveron, in his first season on the job, of favoritism toward the Patriots, but here are the facts: • New England’s Brandin Cooks caught a 25-yard touchdown pass with 23 seconds left to beat Houston 36-33 on Sept. 24. He caught the ball with both feet in the end zone but lost control as he hit the ground out of bounds. It was ruled a touchdown, and Riveron did not overturn it upon review. An NFL source told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Cooks’ catch remained a touchdown because there was no good video angle that showed him losing control of the ball when he hit the ground. • New York Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught a 4-yard touchdown pass against the Patriots, and fumbled through the back of the end zone once he crossed the line. It was ruled a touchdown on the field. Riveron overturned it. The Patriots got the ball at the 20. New England went on to win 24-17 on Oct 15. • Then, Sunday night Jesse James caught a pass from Ben Roethlisberger over the middle, was never touched as his knee hit the ground, stretched the ball over the goal line and only then seemed to lose control of it. Riveron overturned the score, putting the ball back at the 10. New England won, 27-24. The Jets and the Steelers were incensed by Riveron taking the touchdowns away. Both believe their receivers made “football moves” — a factor in the rule — before losing control of the ball. In addition, many Steelers do not believe there was enough evidence that James even did lose control to overturn it, as the replay rules require. Late-game confusion The confusion by the Steelers and their coaching staff after the James touchdown was overturned was baffling. There were 28 seconds left on the game clock as the play was being reviewed. If it stands, Steelers most likely win the game. But shouldn’t they have taken the time to prepare what they would do next if it was reversed? Even though out of timeouts, the review gave them plenty of time to discuss the next play or even the next two plays if the first did not score. They apparently did not. Even Bill Cowher mentioned it Monday on an appearance on 93.7 The Fan Morning Show. According to host Colin Dunlap, Cowher questioned why Roethlisberger and Todd Haley weren’t meeting together to plan what to do if the call was overturned. When it was, the Steelers lined up and Roethlisberger threw short left to Darrius Heyward-Bey, who did not get out of bounds after gaining 3 yards. The clock kept moving. That is when more confusion reigned about whether to spike the ball to bring up a fourth down at the 7 and a tying field goal, or go for it first and then kick. The result was a mish-mash fake-spike play in which just one receiver ran into the middle of the Patriots defense. The Patriots were less confused on the play than the Steelers. Roethlisberger’s pass to Eli Rogers was tipped and intercepted with five seconds to go. Ballgame. Mike Tomlin looked ahead publicly to the New England game three weeks ago, yet the coaching staff did not use the extended time during the touchdown review to look one or even two plays ahead in that very game. http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/steelers/2017/12/18/alberto-riveron-nfl-senior-vice-president-of-officiating-patriots-calls-jesse-james/stories/201712180138

    Advanced Disposal Landfill Collapse

    The article talking about silica, alumina and iron oxide... Note it then moves on to the advantages versus disadvantages. It most certainly is advantageous to the producers of fly ash, just like using sewage sludge on fields is advantageous for some...

    Advanced Disposal Landfill Collapse

    Yes, it's a means for companies to get rid of their coal by-product, but is it beneficial to consumers if it doesn't last as long as cement?
