Rival teams still want answers about Ferrari’s 2019 engineSPIELBERG, Austria (AP) — Rival teams still want answers about whether Ferrari’s engine last season was legal or not, after an investigation was closed following a private settlement with governing body FIA.Questions were raised as to whether Ferrari’s fuel-flow exceeded its maximum permitted amount of 100 kilograms per hour. Teams argued that this may have been a key reason for Ferrari’s notably superior speed on long straights and its remarkable run of six straight pole positions.Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says “it does nothing but promote suspicion when there are private agreements.” The FIA is now prepared to share its conclusions but needs Ferrari’s permission and the Italian manufacturer is refusing.

There is a huge need for apartments in this town and not section 8 type apartments. There are people who do not want to make a financial commitment to purchase a home, mow the yard, fix a dripping faucet or own a dog or cat and apartment living suits these type of people well. Then there are the majority who want to express themselves through paint, décor, lawn care, etc, or they want a yard, garage and their animals, there are several reasons why one choses a home over an apartment and by the way, there are not enough homes on the market, this has been a problem for quite some time, the selection is slim pickens! Report Reply 1 reply · active 322 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down LiveWell · 322 weeks ago I wouldnt blame anybody for not wanting to make a financial commitment to this town!!! All your taxes go to keeping the hospital open and buying new trucks for the city. Look at how old the service trucks are that USD 353 has to use compared to the city’s fleet… I know this is going away from the article here, but seriously, why is more housing needed in this town when there is no industry here for people to work in. Report Reply +7 Vote up Vote down concerned · 322 weeks ago I’m sorry but ” similar to duplexes built recently by the Russell Brothers, owners of Russell Excavating in Wellington” is an unfair and misleading statement. If these turn out to be a lesser quality product, it could reflect badly on the Russell Brothers and harm their high quality reputation, especially their rental business. Unless the Russell Brothers are going to build these, their name should not be attached to the project in any way.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” The Wellington City Council voted to annex 6.3 acres of property adjacently south of Wellington Wal-Mart Super Center, so that 10 duplexes can be built for 20 housing rental units.At its Tuesday meeting, the council unanimously approved the annexing of the property owned by the Short Land Company of Oxford.Larry Theurer, owner of Theurer Auction Realty LLC, acting as the landownerâ€™s agent, said the proposed complex is not affiliated with the 192-unit apartment complex proposed by Jason Van Sickle of Wichita. That proposed apartment complex would be built on the east side of Willams Drive – the road going south of the Walmart east entrance â€” while the duplexes would be built directly west of the apartments and south of Walmart.Â Theurer said Tom Lowry of Oxford will construct the proposed duplexes, which are to be high quality rental housing similar to duplexes built recently by the Russell Brothers, owners of Russell Excavating in Wellington. Each unit will face south and be 1,050 square feet including two bedrooms, one bathroom and a single-car garage.â€œThese will be very nice duplexes,â€ Theurer said. â€œI think they will fill up very quickly once built.â€But as always there is the â€œprocessâ€ and other extenuating circumstances.While the council voted to annex the property within the city limits, the property still needs to be rezoned. Also, the developers will need the city to approve of the extension of utilities. Theurer said the process could take three to five years.Theurer also said the Shorts are taking a wait-and-see approach with Van Sickle, who approached the council in December of building the apartment complex. Theurer said Van Sickle has had more trouble procuring investment for his project than what originally was expected.Once there are definitive plans with the apartment complex, the duplex developers will adjust their plans accordingly, Theurer said.Lowry has been involved with other duplex developments in Winfield and Arkansas City, Theurer said.There have been two other proposed apartment complexes including a 48-unit complex at Settlerâ€™s Creek addition and a 42-unit complex refurbished at the Wellington Junior High.See story of those proposed projects here: http://www.sumnernewscow.com/three-apartment-complexes-currently-being-proposed-for-wellington/Follow us on Twitter. read more
There are five uncapped players in Cheika’s 33-man squad but Samu who signed with a two-year deal with the Brumbies this week isn’t one of them.Rugby Australia had submitted an official request to New Zealand Rugby for the release of the Australian born Samu but approval was yet to come through.While World Rugby’s regulations force the release of players for Test duty in June, there is a sub-clause that allows unions to deny such requests when the player holds dual eligibility.”I have been told at this point I can’t select him. But there is a spot for him there,” Cheika said.”At this point, it is in other’s hands.”I am not really involved in that part of it but I am hoping that there will be some more clarity about that (on Thursday).”While there is still hope Melbourne-born Samu will be cleared in time to take on Ireland, it would be entirely at New Zealand Rugby’s discretion.The 26-year-old is also eligible for the All Blacks through residency.While World Rugby’s regulation nine forces the release of players for Test duty in June, there is a sub-clause that allows them to deny such requests when the player holds dual eligibility.If Samu isn’t made available, Cheika said newcomer Caleb Timu and Lukhan Tui were possible contenders to play at No.6 for the series opener in Brisbane on 9 June. read more
