Johnson County Library’s Cedar Roe branch reopens after two months of roof repairs, other projects

first_imgCedar Roe Library, 5120 Cedar Street, is up and running after a two-month closure.Book worms rejoice: a Johnson County library branch is back open and ready for patrons for the first time since October.The Johnson County Library Cedar Roe branch, 5120 Cedar Street, reopened on Monday after a two-month long closure for roof repairs. Staff members from the Cedar Roe branch, who worked at other branches over the last two months, were eager to get back to normal — as were regular Cedar Roe patrons, Assistant Branch Manager Alison Pierson said.“Cedar Roe is, I think, one of the most beloved neighborhood libraries,” Pierson said. “It has a real following in the neighborhood. One of our patrons [Monday] morning brought us a cake as a welcome back.”The flat portion of the roof was entirely replaced, complete with new roof drains and insulation. Closing the library allowed for the opportunity to complete projects other than roof repairs, as well: the entire library underwent a deep clean, new carpet was installed in the entryway, and updates were made to the restroom including new mirrors.Pierson said the new carpet will offer a more welcoming experience for patrons using a wheelchair, walker or strollers. Now, patrons won’t have to struggle with the entryway mats and other obstacles, she said. The repairs and updates shows that Johnson County Library is committed to the community, she said.“The updates, overall, I think, show the library’s investment in the community and the building,” Pierson said. “I think that is something that we’ve seen a really positive reaction to in Roeland Park.”last_img read more

Thome, Belle, Robinson and Jamieson to Be Inducted into the Indians HOF

first_imgThe Indians will induct four franchise legends into the club’s Hall of Fame in a ceremony on July 30 at Progressive Field.Jim Thome, the Indians all-time home run king; Albert Belle, still the only 50-50 man in baseball history; Frank Robinson, the first African-American manager in baseball history; and Charlie Jamieson, who hit .316 over 14 seasons with the Indians and was a member of the 1920 World Series team, will be inducted before the Indians game against the Oakland A’s. A Jim Thome HOF Bobblehead, courtesy of Medical Mutual, will be distributed to 15,000 fans that evening.The quartet’s induction now makes the Indians Hall of Fame 44 members strong after Omar Vizquel’s induction in 2014.”These are four of the all-time great players in our franchise’s storied history, and through their individual personalities and achievements, each has created his own special memories for generations of Indians fans,” said Indians Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Bob DiBiasio. “We’re excited to officially recognize their contributions to our franchise and the game of baseball by inducting them into the Indians Hall of Fame.”Thome played 13 seasons in all for the Indians, and his 337 homers and 1,008 walks in a Tribe uniform are the most in club history. He was a three-time All-Star as a member of the Indians, and four times finished in the top 10 in American League MVP voting.He ranks second in club history in RBI (937), third in on-base percentage (.414), slugging percentage (.592) and OPS (.980), and 10th in doubles (263). Thome is first-time eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2018.Belle, too, was one of the most feared hitters in baseball during his prime; he hit 50 homers and 52 doubles in 1995, and remains the only Major League player in history to accomplish that feat. He was a four-time All-Star and Silver Slugger Award winner with the Tribe, and three times finished in the top three in AL MVP voting.He ranks second in club history in homers, with 242, second in slugging percentage (.580), fifth in OPS (.949) and 10th in RBI (751).Robinson played the final three years of his stellar career in Cleveland, but is far better remembered for being a pioneer: He became the first African-American manager in baseball history, and served as player-manager from 1975-1976.After hitting 586 career homers for five teams, Robinson managed the Indians for parts of three seasons, and eventually managed four teams. He won 1,065 games over 16 seasons, and was the 1989 AL Manager of the Year.Jamieson played the final 14 years of his career (12 full seasons) with the Indians, hitting .316 and scoring 942 runs over those seasons. He also was a member of the 1920 World Series champions.He ranks fifth in club history in hits (1,753), seventh in doubles (296), ninth in average and walks (627), 10th in triples (74) and 11th in on-base percentage (.388).CLEVELAND INDIANS HALL OF FAME MEMBERS (44)CA SANDY ALOMAR- Inducted 2009OF EARL AVERILL- Inducted 19512B CARLOS BAERGA- Inducted 2013P JIM BAGBY, SR.-Inducted 2007OF ALBERT BELLE – Inducted 2016SS LOU BOUDREAU- Inducted 19543B BILL BRADLEY- Inducted 1957SS RAY CHAPMAN- Inducted 2006OF ROCKY COLAVITO- Inducted 2006P STAN COVELESKI- Inducted 1966OF LARRY DOBY- Inducted 1966P BOB FELLER- Inducted 1957P WES FERRELL- Inducted 2009OF ELMER FLICK- Inducted 1963P MIKE GARCIA- Inducted 2007MGR/2B JOE GORDON- Inducted 2008P MEL HARDER- Inducted 1951MGR/1B MIKE HARGROVE- Inducted 2008CA JIM HEGAN- Inducted 1966OF JOE JACKSON- Inducted 1951P ADDIE JOSS- Inducted 20063B KEN KELTNER- Inducted 1951OF CHARLIE JAMIESON – Inducted 20162B NAP LAJOIE- Inducted 1951P BOB LEMON- Inducted 1960OF KENNY LOFTON- Inducted 2010MGR.

Ravens gather to commemorate Super Bowl XLVII a final time

first_img(This blog brought to you by Atlantic Remodeling. Visit www.atlanticremodeling.com to learn about their Red Cent Guarantee!)The Super Bowl ring ceremony was quite the extravagant party in Owings Mills that served as a reunion for the 2012 Ravens as well as the final big celebration of the second championship in franchise history.Yes, Baltimore’s home opener against the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 15 will include the unveiling of a second Super Bowl championship banner, but that ceremony will be overshadowed by an actual game and won’t include those who’ve moved on to other organizations but were able to return to the team’s facility to receive their lavish Super Bowl rings.Media access was limited at Friday night’s event as it was a party for members of the organization, but the Ravens provided an interesting foursome of players to speak to the media minutes after the rings were unveiled.Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Joe Flacco, and Torrey Smith all stood at different stages of their career as they received their championship rings with the 38-year-old Lewis speaking to reporters first. Having retired after winning his second championship, Lewis spoke as a fatherly figure throughout the postseason and once again expressed his satisfaction over not only having the opportunity to go out on top but to see his teammates experience what it meant to be a champion.“I always told them I wanted them to really feel what the confetti felt like. Now to be here, to have something that symbolizes it, it’s the ultimate because now it connects us forever,” said Lewis, who also wore his Super Bowl XXXV ring after receiving the Super Bowl XLVII one to wear on his opposite hand. “It took me 12 years to get back and get another ring. I want them to cherish what this moment feels like right now while we’re world champions.”Flacco, the Super Bowl MVP, responded only how he could with the honest assessment of a gaudy ring that includes white gold and 243 round-cut diamonds. As Lewis pointed out, Flacco won a championship in his fifth season — like the linebacker did with the 2000 Ravens — and the championship surely provided validation in the minds of those who wondered whether he could lead Baltimore to a championship.The quarterback admitted he probably won’t wear the ring, but it won’t be sitting locked up in his closet either.“It’s kind of unwearable,” said Flacco, drawing laughter from reporters. “When I see people for the first time, I’m sure they’re going to have some interest in seeing it or at least I’m going to have some interest in showing it off to them. I’m definitely going to bring it a couple of places. I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m going to wear it, but it’s pretty special.”Entering his third season, Smith represented the younger players on the roster fortunate enough not to wait long to taste Super Bowl glory in their NFL careers.And the former University of Maryland product struggled to keep his eyes off the hardware as he spoke to media.“I told you all what I was going to be like. I didn’t cry or anything, but I can see how women feel when they get a ring,” said Smith as he laughed. “It has a lot of different meanings. There will never be another season like this. We can win the Super Bowl every year while I’m in the league and there will be nothing like this one.”The most intriguing of the four to speak was 11th-year linebacker Terrell Suggs, who finally earned the Super Bowl ring he’s dreamed about after starring on the vaunted Baltimore defense for a decade. While Lewis, Flacco, and future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed received most of the attention for different reasons, Suggs won his first championship after the most difficult season of his career in which he recovered from a torn Achilles tendon in late April and then played with a torn biceps for the final two months of the 2012 season.Always one to provide a colorful quote and having the reputation of being the class clown of the Ravens locker room, Suggs’ sincerity in describing how he felt upon finally seeing his first piece of championship jewelry was the highlight of the brief session.“To have it so close, it finally hit me what exactly we accomplished together,” said Suggs, who figured out his ring was hidden in front of him when he was discouraged from moving his seat at the beginning of the ceremony. “It didn’t take a year. It took me 11 years to get it. It took coach [John] Harbaugh from when he got here in 2008 — we’ve been chasing this. It finally paid off, all that blood given. There’s not a word that describes what I’m feeling right now and all the emotions.“The journey was long, but it was worth it. But I will tell you this, I damn sure want to feel like this again.”Owner Steve Bisciotti took care of former members of the organization by not only awarding Super Bowl rings to David and John Modell, the sons of the late owner Art Modell, but to the five members of the team’s Ring of Honor who played on the Super Bowl XXXV championship team. It appears Bisciotti is setting a precedent by giving rings to Jonathan Ogden, Peter Boulware, Michael McCrary, Matt Stover, and Jamal Lewis, but fellow Ring of Honor member Earnest Byner wasn’t included in that group.Byner was the only member of the Ring of Honor to have played for the Ravens — the Hall of Fame members of the Baltimore Colts are also honored — who did not receive a ring, so it appears this is a subtle way of ignoring the former Browns, Redskins, and Ravens running back’s inclusion, which was never accepted by fans from the time Byner was inducted in 2001.He was a favorite of the late Modell, but seeing Byner’s name listed among Ravens greats as well as the Hall of Fame Colts has always looked out of place.last_img read more
