Dear Friends,A break in the extremely cold temperatures has allowed work in Ocean City to resume from beach to bay.The Public Works team is moving stockpiles of sand to rebuild dunes at Fifth Street and in the area between 10th Street and 12th Street. The Army Corps left a supply for us to work with during the recent north end beach replenishment project.Work on the boardwalk reconstruction project between 10th Street and 12th Street remains on schedule. We expect to reopen the block between 10th Street and 11th Street in the coming days, and much of the decking on the final block is already in place.Multiple crews are now working to complete the network of new storm pipes in the Fourth Ward drainage project. A pre-construction meeting next week will determine the schedule for another major neighborhood drainage project between First Street and Eighth Street. At the same time, many other city road projects and utility upgrade projects are back underway.The downtown will benefit from sidewalk and crosswalk work expected to begin later this month. And contractors are back at work finishing private dredging contracts in Carnival Bayou.Last night, a young Ocean City resident put on a free concert of Billy Joel songs for an enthusiastic audience at the Ocean City Free Public Library. At just 13, Scott Nuss shows remarkable talent. The eighth-grader even penned and debuted an Ocean City theme song about a favorite vacation spot that became his home. I want to thank Scott and his family for sharing his gift and his new theme with us all.I hope you all have a great weekend.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayor
Last September, the Student Council of St Eunan’s College got involved in a national campaign called “Blue September” with an aim of promoting cancer awareness in St Eunan’s College.The Student Council became aware of the ‘Blue September’ campaign through social media outlets, and they immediately knew that it was something that would truly benefit the Students.Student council member Aryton Kelly told Donegal Daily, “It’s frightening to think that 1 in 3 men (or 1 in 4 women) will develop cancer in their lifetime. “That’s about eight boys in an average class, and with cancer rates set to rise by about 60% (14 million cases to 22 million, Source WHO) in the next twenty years, we felt it was really important to equip the boys of St Eunan’s College with information that could potentially save their lives.Over the course of a week a PowerPoint was shown in every SPHE class, from First Year up to Sixth Year.This presentation had a huge amount of interesting and shocking information.Aryton added, “We believe it has affected the boys in the school by just making them aware, for example, that testicular cancer is most common in young men, aged 15 to 34. “Also staggering was 30% of cancers are preventable through lifestyle choices (smoking, sun-beds, diet, etc.).“This really opened everyone’s eyes and helped them realise that cancer is truly a universal issue – and is by no means limited to adults.A really important factor in the presentation was about how to do a self-check, and about symptoms of the most common cancers in men in Ireland: Testicular, Prostate, Lung, Skin and Bowel cancer.The Presentation is still available on the Student Council’s website (www.eunansstudentcouncil.weebly.com) under ‘News’.Nicholas Lane, the chairman of the Student Council and sixth year student told Donegal Daily, “The presentation was very informative, interesting and easy to understand. “I learned a lot of things I didn’t know before”.The week wasn’t a wholly sombre affair though, on Friday the Student Council held a Keepy Uppy Challenge in aid of Blue September (The Mater Foundation).Well over fifty students (and teachers) got involved in the challenge – the day was very positive, everyone got involved, we had junior students, senior students, care-taking staff and teachers.There are few events that a school can hold that invokes so much interest, but the ‘Keepy Uppy Challenge’ was certainly one of them. In all €107 was raised by the Keepy Uppy Challenge and over €200 was donated to Blue September – the Student Council would like to thank everyone that took part, and made this fundraiser and awareness campaign as successful as it was.Nicholas Lane, Chairperson said, “We’d also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners, from Junior House we had Enda McDevitt (351), Clinton Ilapeju (203) and Jack Cullen (185)Senior House: Ronan Dorrian (187), Caolan McDaid (144) and Oran Hilley (128)A huge thank you as well to Michael Murphy Sports and Leisure for part-sponsoring the prizes.The current Student Council of Saint Eunan’s College has been in existence since November 2013.PICTURE SPECIAL: ST EUNAN’S COLLEGE SHOW THEIR BALL SKILLS IN AID OF MEN’S CANCER was last modified: October 31st, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:AwarenessBlue SeptemberFeaturesMen’s CancernewsSt Eunans
