U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers Announces Nearly $5 Billion For Disaster Recovery Projects In Texas

No Comments

By macdonald.walker@gov.texas.gov The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) today announced nearly $5 billion in funding for disaster recovery projects in Texas. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) today announced nearly $5 billion in funding for disaster recovery projects in Texas. This funding will go towards critical flood mitigation projects, including a number of high-priority projects identified by Governor Abbott and local leaders in Texas. In addition to the nearly $5 billion for infrastructure projects, the USACE announced nearly $16 million for Texas on studies for projects to help make the state more resilient to future storms. This allocation comes as a result of the disaster supplemental passed by Congress earlier this year, and is in addition to the $500 Million announced by the USACE last month.

“The billions allocated to Texas today is welcome news as we continue to rebuild in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey,” said Governor Abbott. “This funding will go a long way toward future-proofing Texas against another hurricane and strengthening our infrastructure to withstand dangerous flooding. I thank the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Texas Congressional Delegation and the Office of Management and Budget for their work in helping rebuild Texas stronger than before.”

Projects included in today’s announcement from the USACE:

  • Brays Bayou – $75,000,000
  • Buffalo Bayou and Tributaries – $1,454,000
  • Clear Creek – $295,165,000
  • Dallas Floodway – $222,911,000
  • Dallas Floodway Extension – $53,000,000
  • Hunting Bayou – $65,000,000
  • Lewisville Dam – $91,959,000
  • Lower Colorado River – $73,290,000
  • Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay – $3,957,134,000
  • White Oak Bayou – $45,000,000

Studies included in today’s announcement from the USACE:

  • Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration Study – $1,902,000
  • Buffalo Bayou and Tributaries Study – $6,000,000
  • Houston Regional Watershed Assessment – $3,000,000
  • Brazos River, Fort Bend County Erosion Management Study – $3,000,000

Morgan Evans joins Keith and Kelsea on the Graffiti U Tour this weekend

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC/Image Group LA Fans who come out to see Keith Urban and Kelsea Ballerini this weekend will likely get an unexpected bonus.

“On the road again…with a handsome plus one this weekend…” Kelsea tweeted, along with a photo of her getting a kiss from her husband, Morgan Evans. She added, “So excited for 2 nights in Gilford, NH!!”

The “Kiss Somebody” singer wrapped up his 10 Cities in 10 Days Tour last week.

“Already in a good mood, obviously,” the Aussie singer shared as he headed out with Kelsea. “But, this morning my TSA Security agent saw my passport and starting singing Waltzing Matilda. Ordinarily I’d think that was incredibly cheesy but this morning I just sang along …”

“Waltzing Matilda” is a well-known Australian folk song and is regarded as the country’s unofficial national anthem. Keith, Kelsea — and maybe Morgan — play Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH Thursday and Friday night.

Sacha Baron Cohen teases new project with Donald Trump video

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC/Randy Holmes(HOLLYWOOD) — Controversial comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is cooking up something new – and it appears to involve President Donald Trump.

In a video posted to social media Wednesday, Cohen teases he’s “back as you’ve never seen him before.” The clip begins with footage of Trump badmouthing Cohen back in 2012 in response to one of Cohen’s red carpet stunts.

“This third-rate character named Sacha Baron Cohen, I only wish that he would’ve been punched in the face so many times right now he’d be in a hospital,” Trump says in the video. “It was disgraceful. He should’ve been fired immediately.”

He tells Cohen to “go to school” and “learn about being funny” because “you don’t know sh**.”

The message “Sacha graduates soon” then flashes across the screen and the video ends with the logo of Trump University.

Cohen and Trump have had a rocky past. Cohen previously spoke with Trump while in character as wannabe rapper Ali G for Da Ali G Show, but Trump boasted, “I never fall for scams. I am the only person who immediately walked out of my ‘Ali G’ interview.”
