The first phase of the project consists of the excavating and grading of 250 acres of land, as well as the installation of basic infrastructure, including water, gas, electricity and roads.“I’m pleased to announce this funding to begin the work necessary for a project that will culminate in space to accommodate new and existing businesses and the growing gas, coal and energy industries in southwest Pennsylvania,” Governor Wolf said. “In addition, the potential for thousands of new jobs exists and is a welcome sign for this region’s economy.”T&R Properties, Inc. in Cecil Township was awarded a $1 million grant to begin the multi-phased construction project. The first phase of the project will result in approximately 250 acres of pad-ready sites within 21 months of the commencement of construction activities. The Cool Valley project will substantially support economic development activities in Washington County, home to several large gas, coal, and energy companies.“This project has tremendous potential to expand economic growth and job opportunities to not only our region but throughout the Commonwealth,” said Sen. Camera Bartolotta. “Specifically, the grant will be used to develop a mixed-use business park which upon completion will offer office and retail space, warehouses, hotel accommodations and even a medical center. The area has become a hub for residential and business development over the past few years and this funding and future project will build upon the park’s success for generations to come.”Once completed, the project is expected to result in as much as three million square feet of office and flex building space in Cool Valley and the creation of thousands of jobs. Cecil Township also received $2.8 million in transportation funding for improvements to the intersection of state routes 1009 and 1036 to support the Cool Valley Business Park.Supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) program, funding will support critical expansion projects, some of which will provide opportunities for additional economic development.

Spain’s coach Vicente Del Bosque is a largely unheralded part of their success, but his ability to work with a squad of superstars and to get the best out of them has resulted in a stunning run of success. During 2009, the Swiss played nine matches, won four of them, drew four, and lost only one. Spanish-speaking football fans might want to follow Group H. Apart from the obvious attraction of the world’s top-ranked team, it contains two other Spanish speaking sides: Honduras and Chile. Switzerland The current European champions are blessed with talent and depth at every position. The vast majority of their players ply their trade in Spain, which helps when it comes to preparation. Those who are stationed elsewhere are with top European clubs. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material The only thing standing between the Spaniards and their making a big impact in South Africa is their previous failures in big Fifa tournaments, but many would argue that those days are now over following their victory in Euro 2008. Chile The world’s number one ranked team, Spain had their 35-match unbeaten run shockingly ended in the semi-finals of the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup by the USA. However, that was the only setback they suffered during the year as they won the other 15 matches they played, scoring 47 goals and conceding only 12 along the way. Those excellent results earned Spain the title as Fifa Team of the Year. The Hondurans have some real class up front, with Genoa forward David Suazo and the very experienced Carlos Pavon whose record by the end of 2009 stood at an astonishing 57 goals in 96 internationals. Chile enjoyed an impressive qualifying campaign for South Africa 2010, finishing second among the 10 South American teams, behind only five-time champions Brazil, ranked second in the world. Spain’s play is composed and assured – one of the results of winning becoming a habit. Their defence is solid and unyielding, their midfielders talented as a unit and able to create opportunities, and their strikers have a cutting edge. They are, in a word, complete. Since that time they have continued to wrack up victory after victory and there has been no sign that they will slow down any time soon. Their team is sprinkled with experience, but overall they are astonishingly young, although many of their youngesters have played for some years on the big stage of the Uefa Champions League. End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 1Appearances: 12Best result: fourth place 1950Players to watch: goalkeeper Iker Casillas, defender Carlos Puyol, midfielders Xavi and Cesc Fabregas, strikers David Villa and Fernando Torres Spain End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 18Appearances: 8Best result: quarterfinals 1934, 1938, 1954Players to watch: defender Ludovic Magnin, midfielder Hakin Yakin, forwards Alexander Frei and Blaise N’Kufo Their star player is striker Alexander Frei. He is also captain of the Swiss and carries much of the burden of their hopes in South Africa. By the end of 2009, he had scored an outstanding 40 goals in 73 internationals. It is a record that places him in elite company. For instance, a player like 2008 Fifa World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 22 times in 68 internationals. End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 37Appearances: 1Best result: first round 1982Players to watch: strikers Carlos Pavon and David Suazo, midfielders Wilson Palacios, Julio Leon and Amado Guevara 2009 was a busy year for Honduras. They played 24 matches, winning 15 of them, losing eight and drawing only one. They had particular problems with the USA, playing the Americans four times and losing all four. Chile is a young team with few players having reached 30 years of age. Yet, despite their relative youth, they’re experienced playing away from home, both in South American qualifying and in matches in preparation for the World Cup. In midfield, captain Amado Guevara will be one of the most experienced players in the tournament, with over 130 caps to his name. He is also a useful goal scorer in support of the strikers. Together with Torino’s Julio Leon and Wilson Palacios of Tottenham Hotspur, Guevara gives Honduras a strong midfield. In their only previous visit to the World Cup finals in 1982, Honduras surprised by drawing 1-1 with Spain and eventual group winners Northern Ireland before a 1-0 loss to Yugoslavia sent them out of the tournament. Once again, in 2010, they have a defence that is usually miserly and concedes on average just a goal a game. During the World Cup, much will depend on a trio of former Colo-Colo players who have since moved on to top European clubs: Matias Fernandez, now with Sporting Lisbon; Humberto Suazo, now with Real Zaragoza; and Alexis Sanchez, now with Udinese. Fernandez provides quality in the midfield and Suazo and Sanchez the finishing up front. Honduras End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 37Appearances: 7Best result: third place 1962Players to watch: goalkeeper and captain Claudio Bravo, midfielder Matias Fernandez, forwards Humberto Suazo and Alexis Sanchez Honduras secured a place in South Africa by finishing third in Concacaf qualifying behind the United States and Mexico after four rounds of qualifying. Along the way, they topped a tricky third round group also featuring Mexico, Jamaica and Canada. Switzerland booked their place in South Africa after topping a competitive qualifying group that also included Greece (which went on to secure a place in South Africa), Latvia, and Israel. In 10 matches, they conceded only eight goals. Speaking to Fifa.com, Hitzfeld commented: “If my father had known I’d be this successful as Switzerland coach – not as Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund coach – he’d have been overjoyed. It’s the place we call home, you see.” During 2009, they played 14 games, won eight of them, lost three and drew three. Those games included an outing against South Africa in Polokwane which Chile convincingly won 2-0 with South African-born winger Mark Gonzalez playing a starring role. The Swiss are coached by Ottmar Hitzfeld, who has won 18 major titles during his coaching career. Most of that time was spent coaching German giants Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich but, interestingly, he got his start in coaching in Switzerland with FC Zug in 1983. He coached in the country until 1991, also taking charge of FC Aarau and Grasshoppers Zurich. After a strong showing in qualifying and having last made it to the World Cup in 1998, when striker Marcelo Salas led the way, Chile will have high expectations of themselves. They’re a dark horse team that deserves some respect.

It showed.The sharpness was deficient, as was the ability to string passes together.“When we look back on tonight we aren’t going to think it was a sluggish game,” Liverpool-born defender Trent Alexander-Arnold said. “We are going to think we have just won the European Cup.”Tottenham will have only regrets as its luck run out after a season of comebacks and great escapes in the competition with a squad that had no additions.“A little bit unlucky,” said Mauricio Pochettino, who remains without a trophy in management. “To start a Champions League final from the start 1-0 it’s a tough situation, it changed completely the plan.”Lucas Moura’s goal in Barcelona in December carried Tottenham into the round of 16. The Brazilian’s hat trick last month then completed a turnaround against Ajax.
