Bergman applauds America’s Water Infrastructure Act, Republicans plan rally for Friday

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena — Congressman Jack Bergman participated in a site visit at Decorative Panels International off the shores of Lake Huron on Wednesday afternoon.Just yesterday, President Donald Trump signed the America’s Water Infrastructure Act into law, a move that Bergman applauds and has several implications with the 1st Congressional District. The passing of the bill will allow funding for a new Poe-sized lock in Sault Ste. Marie which has been one of the biggest priority for the former Lieutenant General since he came into office.It also continues to advance a number of moves in dealing with the eradication of invasive species, monitoring contaminates like PFAS, and ending toxic algal blooms.“President Trump and everybody realizes that this is the right way to go for America, and it’s great for Michigan great for the Great Lakes,” said Bergman.Funding for the new lock still needs to be appropriated by Congress. The estimated cost sits just under a billion dollars. Bergman noted that this piece of critical infrastructure relies on multiple parties including national security like the Army Corp of Engineers to help carry, complete, and operate a structure like a new lock. While a new lock looks to encourage more industry and commerce in the Great Lakes region, Northeastern Michiganders have taken note on the spread of PFAS and invasive species facing the waters on the sunrise side.“The quality of the water that we drink, that we utilize has got to be number one,” said Bergman. “There is money in the water infrastructure bill to make sure it’s monitored and kept safe. Number two, invasive species… if we don’t control whether it’s cormorants or zebra mussels, [and] all of those things the health of our waters will cut into our economy.”With election season in full swing, Bergman will be traveling throughout the 1st district up until election day. Meanwhile other Republican candidates will rally in Alpena on Friday at the new Alpena County GOP headquarters on Chisholm Street. Senate Candidate John James who is up against current Senator Debbie Stabenow will be in attendance. Current State Representative Sue Allor and current State Senator Jim Stamas will also attend. The event takes place from 9:00 A.M. until 10:00 A.M. at 1201 W.

Davante Adams: ‘I think I’m the best receiver in the NFL’

first_imgDavante Adams knows his worth.The Packers wide receiver is having a breakout season through the team’s first 11 games and voiced that he believes he is the best player at his position in the league. But Adams still doesn’t believe he’s solidified his position among fellow receivers Antonio Brown, Julio Jones and Odell Beckham Jr.”I feel like if you ask people,” Adams said, “certain people will say that I’m a top receiver. But if you ask people to name their top receivers, they won’t mention me. So that’s where the disrespect is coming from. I don’t think they say, ‘Davante Adams sucks.’ But they think that top five, they put the same celebrities in there every time.” “I think I’m the best receiver in the NFL. I do,” Adams said earlier this week, via Ryan Wood of Packers News. “I just want to get the respect that I deserve.”Adams ranks sixth in league catches with 77, eighth in receiving yards with 1,022 and fourth in receiving touchdowns with 10. He’s on pace to break the franchise’s single-season marks, as he’s within reach of Sterling Sharpe’s 112 receptions in 1993, Sharpe’s 18 touchdown catches in 1994 and Jordy Nelson’s 1,519 yards in 2014.

Where I’m at with my abilities, I feel like I am the best.”I just have to continue doing what I’m doing. With that comes more recognition.” Packers WR Randall Cobb is ready to return to action this week vs. Cardinalslast_img read more
