Interbike 2008 – Wheeltags

first_imgWe showed you Velocity Wheels’ powder-coated “printed” rims in this post, but let’s say you already have a sweet wheelset or want to use deep dish carbon rims so you can go fast…but you want to give your wheels some style, too.  Hmmm…what to do?  what to do?You could get some custom stickers from Wheeltags and gussy up those racin’ hoops!  Check the “more” link for additional pics, pricing, etc.The stickers are available for a wide range of rim depths and styles as well as disc wheels.  They retail for $38 for a set of six, which is enough for one side of one wheel.  You can also mix ’em up on each side, like the black/white combo below.  They’re great for sponsors, egos or artsy types. They come packed in a stylish tin, which as all packrats know, can be used for like a million things.last_img read more

Matt Mueller on Finding Out He Got His Harry Potter Role at a Truck Stop & Why Jessie Mueller Makes Him Feel Like a ‘Proud Grandpa’

first_imgMatt Mueller(Photos by Caitlin McNaney for Broadway.com) from $40.00 Related Shows View Comments Matt Muellerin Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Photo by Matthew Murphy) Flash forward to Mueller driving in sleet “somewhere in the middle of Wyoming.” “I had finished a gig and was on a road trip,” he explained. “I was like, ‘I’ve got to get gas.’ I had just pulled up, and had a call from my agent. I went up to the truck stop and wandered around on the phone.” With the delight of earning the coveted Cursed Child role comes great responsibility. “What’s so wonderful is that they’re all these same people we fell in love with in the books. They are these people that we love that so many of us have literally and literarily grown up with. It was a little daunting to be like, ‘Everybody knows this guy,'” Mueller said. “The theatricality of it gives us license to be our own person. He’s one of the most courageous [characters] because he’s probably the most scared. He always steps up and always has. It’s a glorious thing to get to do.”Mueller’s sisters include Six-bound star Abby Mueller and Tony winner Jessie Mueller. He spoke about what it was like to witness Jessie’s Broadway debut in On a Clear Day You Can See Forever with Harry Connick Jr. “It was just such a wacky thing. I remember the day she left. We were outside of her apartment, and she got into a big black car and drove away like some sort of song,” he said. “It was all just incredibly exciting. I will never forget going to see Clear Day. That was definitely sort of a proud grandpa moment. Any time I see one of my siblings do what they do, it’s a joy.” Fingers crossed that audiences can catch all three Muellers on Broadway together one of these days!See Matt Mueller shine in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at Broadway’s Lyric Theatre!Watch the full #LiveAtFive episode below!  Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 30:19Loaded: 0%00:00Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently behind liveLIVERemaining Time -30:19 1xPlayback RateChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedEnglishAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Abby Muellercenter_img Jessie Mueller Matt Mueller is making a magical Broadway debut as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. “We started performances in March and started rehearsals in December of last year. [Rehearsal was like] going to Hogwarts. We went to Hogwarts for three months,'” Mueller told Paul Wontorek in a recent interview on Broadway.com’s #LiveAtFive. “I auditioned initially in Chicago. My agent told me it was happening. I said, ‘That sounds like a lot of fun. There’s no way.’ I never thought anything would happen.”Mueller proceeded to participate in the audition process for the Broadway juggernaut. “You had your little family for the 90 minutes that were in the movement call. Everybody had a chopstick that was a wand,” he recalled. “The audition process for this has been and will probably remain one of the best audition processes ever. There’s so much love for the piece and what it is and the people who are involved in it. It was very apparent from the get-go. It’s a great vibe to have. Everybody’s there for the same reason. Everybody’s excited to see you and what you’re going to bring. It was just really, really cool.” Star Files Front Row Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Matt Muellerlast_img read more

Herbert Hoover Dike Rehabilitation Project Continues

first_imgThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, has awarded a contract to replace a water control structure within Herbert Hoover Dike (HHD) as part of the ongoing rehabilitation project for the earthen structure surrounding Lake Okeechobee.USACE awarded the contract on Friday (August 19) for $16.8 million to Harry Pepper & Associates of Jacksonville, Fla.The contract calls for replacement of Culvert IP-3 (S-291) along the Indian Prairie Canal in Glades County northwest of the lake. This water control structure provides irrigation and drainage to landowners in the area. Work on this project is expected to be complete in early 2019.“We continue to make substantial progress on rehabilitation of the dike,” said Tim Willadsen, Herbert Hoover Dike Rehabilitation Project Manager. “With this contract, we now have 21 structures in various phases of replacement, which helps reduce the risk of dike failure due to the erosion and loss of material that had taken place around the old structures.”In 2011, the Corps began a program to address the 32 federally-owned water control structures as part of its ongoing rehabilitation efforts around the dike. Other risk-reduction measures include installation of a 21.4-mile, partial cutoff wall between Port Mayaca and Belle Glade.The Corps has also completed filling of a quarry near Pahokee, and removal of vegetation on the dike. The total investment since 2001 is more than $800 million.Hebert Hoover Dike is a 143-mile, earthen dam that surrounds Lake Okeechobee, the second largest freshwater lake completely within the United States.[mappress mapid=”22900″]last_img read more
