The project is now called University Station, and it’s almost done. Stores and apartments opened, starting in 2015, led by Target and Wegmans. The office section represented the last missing piece. The development team got this far by scaling back ambitions: The new project is roughly half the size of the old one, about 2 million square feet. That helped curb traffic concerns. Surface parking replaced garages in the plans, making the entire 120-acre swath much less expensive to develop. And the region’s strong economy helped pushed things along. Despite that tail wind, finding office tenants proved to be tough for the developers — a group that includes National Development, New England Development, and Eastern Real Estate. They courted a number of high-profile names: TJX, the Clarks shoe company, Haemonetics, Dunkin’ Brands. No luck. Then Citizens came along. The state’s second-largest retail bank wants to consolidate workers in three suburban offices into … [Read more...] about A decade later, University Station’s train is finally pulling in
Scoliosis surgery experiences decades later
Two of the tri-state area’s most-wanted fugitives are women who attacked police officers. One is accused of helping to assassinate an officer at point blank range. The other is accused of partially blinding a cop by throwing acid in his eyes. The FBI and police are making a new push to try to catch the two. The FBI released a new computerized image of Donna Joan Borup this week showing what she may look like now nearly 40 years after she allegedly attacked Port Authority Police Officer Evan Goodstein. Officials said Borup was part of an extremist communist group that tried to start a riot at Kennedy Airport by allegedly throwing acid into a crowd that included police during an anti-apartheid protest. “That was one of the devices that they used,” said Port Authority Police Superintendent Edward Cetnar. “It struck him and it caused him to go blind in one eye.” Borup was one of several “May 19 Communists” arrested in the incident, but she … [Read more...] about Two Women ‘Terrorists’ Still Evade Justice Decades Later: FBI
Rashan Gary is a defensive lineman from Michigan and now the newest member of the Green Bay Packers, who selected him with the 12th pick of the NFL draft on Thursday night.No question, he can play football. But there is a question of when and how well without surgery.Gary will need shoulder surgery, as we discussed this week. It is merely a matter of when.In no way am I panning the pick. He played with the labral te’ar and did well in college. Others in the NFL have played with this injury using a brace/harness. That includes the Cowboys DeMarcus Lawrence. However, others, such as the Lions’ Ezekial Ansah last season, have struggled with it. The Bills chose Shaq Lawson with a similar injury in 2016, and he aggravated it in offseason workouts shortly after being drafted and had surgery, which resulted in his starting on PUP and missing games.The hope is Gary can play through and have the surgery after the 2019 season. If he were to have surgery now, it would likely mean … [Read more...] about Packers pick Rashan Gary likely to need surgery sooner or later
Nearly 70 years later, words are still flying back and forth about the 1951 Final Four. In the first NCAA basketball title game held in the Twin Cities, Kansas State came into Williams Arena in Minneapolis on March 27, 1951 looking to knock off Kentucky, which had won two of the three previous championships. K-State, though, arrived with leading scorer Ernie Barrett ailing. The guard injured his left shoulder three days earlier in a win over Oklahoma A&M (now called Oklahoma State). Struggling with pain and playing reduced minutes, Barrett made just 2 of 12 field-goal attempts in the title game, and his Wildcats lost 68-58 to Kentucky’s Wildcats. “If I hadn’t have gotten hurt, we would have won,” Barrett, 89, said from his home in Manhattan, Kan. “That game sticks with me. I think we had the better team.” Basketball Hall of Fame forward Cliff Hagan begs to differ. Hagan, 87, the only living Kentucky player who saw action in that game, was … [Read more...] about Seven decades later, the Twin Cities’ first Final Four, in 1951, still elicits trash talk
