M/V Matanuska Remains Out Of Service Due To Mechanical Issue

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) is cancelling sailings on the M/V Matanuska through Tuesday, April 14, at which time the M/V Columbia is anticipated to assume the sailings originally scheduled for the Matanuska, according to a release from the Alaska Department of Transportation. Last month, issues with the reduction gear system on the Matanuska were identified. Repairs will need to take place at the Ketchikan shipyard dry dock. The Matanuska returned to service in November 2019 after a complete re-power, and the repairs are covered under warranty. AMHS is unable to provide an anticipated return to service date for the Matanuska at this time but we are working with Vigor Marine to get the ship repaired and back in service as soon as possible. In addition, AMHS is working to establish options for interim passenger and freight service for the Northern Panhandle in the near future. Once dates are set, AMHS will coordinate with communities to give them enough time to plan. Photo provided by: In the release, AMHS is aware of travel needs for upcoming school and community tournaments in March and is exploring options for alternative service. Alaska Airlines is assisting by working with schools to get players and fans to the Region V basketball tournament in Juneau. The M/V Tazlina is scheduled to return to service in the Northern Panhandle on March 5.last_img read more

Someone spied on us, but we don’t care, says England’s Jones

first_imgTOKYO, Japan (Reuters) – Eddie Jones, not for the first time this year, claimed  yesterday that someone had been spying on England’s first World Cup training session back in Tokyo after team officials spotted a red light in a building overlooking their pitch. “There was definitely someone in the apartment block filming but it might have been a Japanese fan,” the Australian said.Despite the training pitches being surrounded by high sheeting and security guards patrolling to prevent unauthorised filming, Jones said he didn’t mind if the session had been recorded.“I don’t care, that’s part of the deal. That’s the fun of the World Cup,” he said. Jones said he used to do the same thing but hadn’t done so since 2001. “You just don’t need to do it any more, you can see everything,” he said. “You can watch everyone’s training on YouTube. There’s no value in doing that sort of thing, absolutely zero.”Saturday’s semi-final opponents New Zealand and tournament officials are unlikely to take much notice of Jones’s latest claims, particularly as he made an almost word-for-word accusation ahead of the Six Nations in January.“I can guarantee (Wales coach) Warren Gatland sends someone when we have an open session,” he said at the time. He also warned then that opportunities for spying at the World Cup would be rife because “a number of grounds in Japan are surrounded by office buildings”.last_img read more
