Scotch pie winner sees sales surge

first_imgThe current Scotch Pie Champion 2015 Linda Hill of Murray’s Bakers has seen sales shoot up since winning the award. The Perth bakery scooped the gong in January and initially saw sales of its famous pie jump 20% to 30% before levelling off at 15% up on previously. Even before the award, the bakery was selling around 6,000 Scotch pies a week at 80p each – easily the business’ best-seller. Hill said around 50% to 60% of the business is generated by its pies.Most of the baking stops in the morning as the shop is replenished with products for the day, but Scotch pie-baking continues into the afternoon and, Linda said, they nearly always sell out by about 4.30pm.“We are so famous for our pies,” she said. “People don’t associate us with bread.”The fourth-generation baker has been in Perth for more than 100 years. It currently operates with five bakers, two bakery workers, who make the pie shells, and 10 staff on the shop floor.While at capacity, Hill doubts there will be a second Murrays Bakers site. “The selling point is that the bakery is attached to the shop,” she said, and if there were a second site, products would need to be transported between bakery and shop.Murrays Bakers scooped the Scotch Pie award from 567 entries by more than 100 bakers and butchers, assessed by 50 judges.last_img read more

Timing your car shopping

first_img 284SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Derek San Filippo Derek is a freelance writer who spends his off time either working with his rescue animals or writing children’s books. He lives in San Diego with his beautiful wife … Web: www.financialfeed.com Details The year is getting nearer to the end. With such finality in view, how do we pass the time? How do we shift our thoughts to distract ourselves from another year gone by? A new car! Below you’ll find the best times to go car shopping to help get you the best deal possible.There a few factors to keep in mind when trying to get the best price on a car.Time of YearFirst, using the sales quotas of the sales representative will be one of your best tools in getting your car. Sales quotas can break down into three separate categories; monthly, quarterly, and yearly. If you use this as a factor, best practices dictate to buy a car later in the year and at the latter part of the month.If quotas need to be met, car salesmen might be more pliable with their pricing on vehicles. According to Edmunds, the most discounted months are October through December. This happens to coincide with what is generally seen as the new model-year car releases. When new models hit the dealer floor, the less expensive the older models are.Time of WeekThe second thing to keep in mind is that individual attention can mean better deals. While this isn’t the rule, if there is heavy traffic going through a dealership, it could make it very difficult to talk a salesperson down from a sticker price. Shopping in the early part of the week, like Monday or Tuesday, will offer you better opportunity to have that personalized conversation, hopefully securing that better deal.Holiday ShoppingThe third thing to keep in mind are holiday sales. This is a mixed blessing. Obviously, sales create lower prices, but they also create more traffic. More traffic won’t simply mean less attention from sales reps; more cars are potentially being snatched up, as well. The most common is Black Friday. Just keep in mind the insanity that day often entails.Also, keep in mind New Year’s Eve. That could be the end of the end of the end of quotas for a salesperson. So, if it’s possible, stop by your local dealership and see what kind of deal you can get.Above all, do your research, and check in with dealers every now and then to monitor deals. Above all, have fun getting your new vehicle!last_img read more

DeSantis Expands Empowerment Scholarship, Provides COVID Update

first_imgFlorida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he wants children from the state’s low-income backgrounds to have all the tools they need to succeed in school and in life.Speaking at Cristo Rey Tampa Salesian High School in Tampa on Thursday, the governor signed a bill that expands Florida’s Family Empowerment Scholarship.The scholarship is intended to help children from low-income and working class families get into the schools that best fit their needs.“If we in the state of Florida can say, we’re doing everything we can to make sure that any child, regardless of income, regardless of income status, regardless of race and ethnicity, has tools to be able to make the most of the God-given talent,” DeSantis said.The governor added that the expansion of the initiative will essentially clear the wait list for the scholarship, and will end up helping around 30,000 students in the state annually.“We believed that we wanted those kids off the wait list,” DeSantis explained. “We wanted to be able to empower parents. Many of them are low-income parents. Many of them are single mothers.” On Wednesday, DeSantis also signed a $500 million education funding bill that increases the minimum salary for public and charter school teachers.“That will, one, reward teachers who are doing a good job,” DeSantis said while signing that legislation. “It’ll also help us continue to recruit people into the profession.”DeSantis also provided an update on Thursday regarding the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, again asking Floridians to avoid crowded spaces and close quarters.“Outdoors in Florida is better than the air conditioning in terms of the virus,” DeSantis said, adding that many COVID-19 outbreaks have been traced back to multi-generational homes. “The spread outdoors is minimal. If you’re cooped up inside, you just tend to have more spread.”According to the latest numbers from the Florida Department of Health, there are 114,018 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state, an increase of 5,004 cases from Wednesday.last_img read more

Full Funding in Place, Homeless Veterans Village Advances

first_img“The key is to harness all these well-intentioned people and officials who stepped up,” Burry said. “Going forward, I would like to lend assistance with funding for facility projects, both as the county’s representative and a private citizen. I have a personal interest in this and intend to remain connected.” “We are beyond thrilled all the cooperative efforts of the past several years are coming together,” Buckley said. “Lillian Burry was the one who got it going and has been a huge help. We can’t do it by ourselves.” TINTON FALLS – With five funding sources and local approval secured, a new permanent, comprehensive residential community for 70 homeless Monmouth County veterans will adhere to its construction timeline despite the current coronavirus pandemic. By Laura D.C. Kolnoski Earlier this month Gov.Phil Murphy ordered allnonessential constructionhalted in the state as part ofefforts to stem the spread ofCOVID-19. This article originally appeared in the April 16th, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. The site is adjacent to Fort Monmouth which is currently undergoing a massive redevelopment, transforming the former U.S. Army base into a mix of residential, retail, educational, high-tech, cultural, entertainment and office uses. The 1,126-acre fort spans three municipalities – Eatontown, Oceanport and Tinton Falls. Residents, who must go through a process that includes certification and a lottery system, will come from a variety of outreach efforts and referrals from social service organizations. The facility will be called the Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Community – as are all Soldier On projects – named for a paralyzed Vietnam veteran who became deputy secretary of the Veterans Administration and was instrumental in helping Jack Downing, Soldier On president and founder, open the first such community in Massachusetts. Freeholder Lillian Burry,the county’s representativeon the Fort MonmouthEconomic RevitalizationAuthority (FMERA). LillianBurry thought it would bean “ideal” addition to thefort’s redevelopment. Shecontacted Downing, whomade a presentation toFMERA members. “The $9 million soft loan is a construction loan that gets eliminated with some permanent debt at the end of the project,” Buckley said. “We are fine-tuning construction costs and looking at a projected opening in August/September 2021.” “This is the rest of the story for the fort,” Freeholder Burry said. Potential locations emerged then failed to materialize for a variety of reasons. Donald Burry told his wife, “Don’t give up.” She initially contacted U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-4) for support and guidance, and traveled to Trenton with Monmouth County administrator Teri O’Conor to meet with New Jersey Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver to appeal for grant money. Additional support and encouragement came from county prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni, a U.S. Navy veteran who was born on Fort Monmouth and served in Afghanistan. There are an estimated 300 homeless veterans in Monmouth County. For information about current programs and services available, county residents can contact the county’s Department of Veterans Affairs, visitmonmouth.com.) center_img Baldwin said he’s not done with Soldier On either. “I have spoken to the large veterans group here at Seabrook,” he said. “There might be opportunities for us to help out. I’ll do anything they want me to do. I’m looking forward to it and waiting to get started. Let’s get on with it.” Buckley said the final cost is contingent on potential construction adjustments, like government architects and engineers requesting one type of material over another to save costs. Another factor is materials pricing, which could go up or down as a result of the virus’s long-term effects. Some bids have already been received, Buckley said. The funding includes a $6.5 million Tax Credit Equity from the Bank of America; a $4.1 million Tax Exempt Bond loan from the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA); a $9 million soft loan from the NJHMFA; a $1.5 million soft loan from Federal Home Loan Bank of New York; and $369K from Monmouth County, which consists of federal Housing and Urban Development monies passed through and approved by the county’s Community Development program. Offering the Seabrook site from the borough of Tinton Falls were former Mayor Gerald Turning, a voting member of FMERA during his mayoralty, and former borough council president Gary Baldwin, a 26-year Air Force veteran officer, who worked actively on the fort’s redevelopment prior to his retirement in December 2019. Baldwin, who resides at Seabrook, said he is, “ecstatic and delighted” all funding for the project is now secured. Officials estimate fewer than one dozen occupants will be female, attended by all-female staff. Women will be housed in a separate section with its own entrance and amenities. “The average resident has had a number of decompensating events,” Downing said. “When they come into our care, that ceases. We are going to find a way to keep them so they don’t fail. Our ultimate goal is to provide formerly homeless veterans with permanent, supportive, sustainable housing.” Buckley said this will be Soldier On’s largest facility to date, built in cooperation with Winn Companies, a national operator of low-income housing tax credit units. Amenities will include fully furnished units, a multipurpose community room, outdoor patio with grills, a greenhouse and community garden, walking paths and a memorial columbarium where ashes of deceased residents can be interred. Support, therapeutic and life skills programs are of fered, and management teams are on site. Freeholder Burry arranged for resident transportation assistance through the county’s SCAT program. “We don’t anticipate any big impact on the timetable,” said Soldier On CEO Bruce Buckley April 10, days after receiving word of the final funding components. “Affordable housing falls under an essential service. We’ll begin site work when it’s feasible, hopefully in one or two months. We are actively working on it.” COURTESY LILLIAN BURRY Pictured with a rendering of the exterior of the new Soldier On homeless veterans community coming to Tinton Falls are, from left, Monmouth County Freeholder Lillian Burry, Soldier On president and founder Jack Downing, former Tinton Falls council president Gary Baldwin and Soldier On CEO Bruce Buckley. Soldier On’s journey to Tinton Falls began with Donald Burry of Colts Neck, a retired Coast Guard captain who read about the organization and told his wife, Monmouth County In December The Two River Times reported exclusively that Soldier On, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization headquartered in Massachusetts, will break ground on a four-story facility this spring. The site is on 11 vacant acres adjacent to the Seabrook Village retirement community on Essex Road. Originally given to the borough by Seabrook’s developer when the village was created, the property was in turn sold to Soldier On for $1. The total project is estimated at $14.7 million. “I started working with Lillian Burry early on,” he said. “After Gerald Turning and I decided to give the 11 acres to Soldier On, Bruce Buckley and Jack Downing visited and loved it. The right thing to do is get these men and women off the street and solve the problem. They need help and guidance. Soldier On is successful in their approach.” last_img read more

AMERICAN STAKES QUOTES

first_imgTRAINER QUOTES LARRY BENAVIDEZ, ASSISTANT TO JOHN SADLER, TALCO, SECOND: “We thought we were home free at the quarter pole but I guess not; he ran great though.” JOCKEY QUOTES VICTOR ESPINOZA, TALCO, SECOND: “My horse ran an awesome race. I decided to make a run around the turn and he was really running, but the winner got through inside of us and he was too much.” FLAVIEN PRAT, BAL A BALI, WINNER: “He did a great job today; he’s just a really good horse. I had a little trouble on the turn because it was his first time on a short turn like that but he can run longer than this; he can run a mile. He’s a great horse.“He has worked so good in the mornings so I was pretty confident. He just repeated his works today. I wasn’t really surprised (by his win). He was the champion in Brazil so he can be the champion here, why not?”center_img RICHARD MANDELLA, BAL A BALI, WINNER: Noted the horse was in traffic a good portion of the race: “Yes, but he’s a pro. He’s run enough times. He knows what he’s doing. Flav’s (Flavien Prat) a pro, too. It really is fulfilling to get his first race in the U.S. under his belt, because he really had a serious problem coming out of quarantine when he had laminitis.“The podiatrist at Rood & Riddle (in Lexington, Ky.) named Vernon Dryden (DVM) did an unbelievable job of getting him back like this. He’s based in Kentucky but he’s gone to Florida and worked on him, he also came out here and worked on him. I can’t say enough about the job he did.”Mandella said he would have to give some thought on his next race, either the $1 million, Grade I Manhattan at 1 ¼ miles on turf Belmont Stakes day June 6 or the Grade I, $400,000 Shoemaker Mile on turf at Santa Anita June 13.

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – THURSDAY DECEMBER 17, 2015

first_imgMcLAUGHLIN TRIO HERE FOR OPENING DAY STAKES            World-class trainer Kiaran McLaughlin has three for the money at Santa Anita on opening day, Dec. 26: multiple graded stakes winner Cavorting for the Grade I La Brea Stakes, and undefeated Marking and Watershed for the Grade I Malibu Stakes.All are progeny of Bernardini, three-year-old champion colt of 2006 who stands at Darley Stud in Lexington, Ky. for $100,000. Each is scheduled to breeze Friday morning under the direction of Kiaran’s brother, Neal, who also will saddle the trio on opening day. The horses arrived at Santa Anita last Sunday.The Malibu and the La Brea each offers $300,000 in purse money and will be decided at seven furlongs, the La Brea restricted to three-year-old fillies and the Malibu to three-year-olds.Cavorting, owned by Stonestreet Stables LLC, won the Grade I Test Stakes at Saratoga on Aug. 8 and the Grade II Prioress at Saratoga Sept. 6, but was an eventful fourth as the favorite in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint at Keeneland on Oct. 31.“The race shape wasn’t great for her in the Breeders’ Cup,” said Kiaran McLaughlin. “She drew the 14 post position and we thought that would be fine going seven eighths, but she ended up getting shuffled back to last and made a big run while wide to finish a good fourth.“Marking won his only two races easily and is very talented. He was entered in the (Grade I) Cigar Mile (won by Tonalist on Nov. 28) but drew the one post against older horses, so we decided to scratch and go in the Malibu.”Marking broke his maiden by 2 ¾ lengths at Belmont on Sept. 23, then won by 5 ½ at Aqueduct on Nov. 4.“Watershed was fourth in the Kings Bishop,” said McLaughin, 55, who guided the Argentine-bred Invasor to Horse of the Year honors in 2006. “The Malibu is an important race and the timing is good for both horses.”Both colts are owned by Godolphin Racing. Joel Rosario will ride Watershed.“All three horses have adapted well since arriving here,” said McLaughlin’s exercise rider of eight years, Pat Correa, a native of Ecuador, who came in from Palm Meadows in Florida. “They’re feeling good and ate up well. They walked Monday after arriving, galloped Tuesday and will work tomorrow, probably a half-mile for Cavorting and five-eighths for the colts.”First post time opening day is 12 noon. Admission gates open at 10 a.m. MATHIS BROTHERS GIVE BOOST TO RACING AT SANTA ANITA            The recently inaugurated Mathis Brothers Mile for three-year-olds on opening day is not only proving popular with horsemen, but the Grade II race with $200,000 in purse money is providing Santa Anita with welcome and wider exposure that could bode well for the future.            The newly inaugurated Mathis Brothers Mile for three-year-olds on Opening Day is not only proving popular with horsemen, but the Grade II race with $200,000 in pursed money is providing Santa Anita with welcome exposure that could bode well for the future.“We are thrilled to continue to grow our Opening Day partnership with Mathis Brothers,” said Nate Newby, Santa Anita’s Vice President of Marketing. “They are sponsoring the race but we’ve also developed a marketing partnership with promotions, contests, and giveaways that drive traffic to Santa Anita as well as the Mathis Brothers’ flagship store just a few miles away in Ontario.“Plus, we love working with people like Bill Mathis who is a horse owner and enthusiastic racing fan. It makes these types of partnerships more fun and generally more beneficial for both companies.”Among others, the Mathis Brothers Mile is expected to attract Ocho Ocho Ocho, who also was being considered for the Malibu.“It wasn’t that it was necessarily an easier spot than the Malibu,” trainer Jim Cassidy said. “It was more about his fitness, and with where he’s at right now in that regard, the turf race will be better for him than the dirt. And besides, a mile turf is right up his alley.”Ocho Ocho Ocho, a three-year-old son of 2007 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, was fourth, beaten a length, in his grass debut, which occurred in his last start, the Penn Mile at Penn National on May 30. KIARAN McLAUGHLIN HAS THREE FOR THE GRADE I MONEYPOPULARITY OF THE MATHIS BROTHERS MILE IS TWO-FOLDCAN EXAGGERATOR TRUMP TEXAS RED IN SAN VICENTE?POPULAR SANTA ANITA WALL CALENDAR FREE OPENING DAY DESORMEAUX EYES SAN VICENTE FOR EXAGGERATORTrainer Keith Desormeaux has an itinerary set for several of his stakes horses, including Exaggerator, winner of the $1 million Delta Jackpot.“We’re planning to run Exaggerator in the San Vicente on Feb. 15,” Desormeaux said, speaking of the Grade II, $200,000 race for three-year-olds at seven furlongs, which Desormeaux ran second in last year with Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Texas Red.“Texas Red is here, but he’s going to need two or three months before he’s ready. Swipe is going to be off for a couple months,” Desormeaux said.“Right There, who won the Landaluce, could go in an allowance race on Jan. 8. Decked Out, who was third in the Grade III Schuylerville at Saratoga last July, might run in the Santa Ynez on Jan. 2.” FINISH LINES: Santa Anita will once again give away its popular full color Wall Calendar free on opening day to all fans at the track with paid admission while supplies last.
