2009 Fourth of July Fireworks in Indianapolis

Indiana’s largest fireworks display, Freedom Blast, will blast off from the Region’s Bank Tower at 9:45pm on Saturday, July 4, 2009. The impressive display will be synchronized to music. Tune in to the radio station WFBQ (94.7 FM) to listen along with the show. This tremendous fireworks show is an Indianapolis tradition, and thousands gather to witness the spectacle throughout Indianapolis. Family friendly events take place throughout Indianapolis all day, culminating in the fireworks display at 9:45. As the display can be seen throughout the city, there is no admission for the Indianapolis’ Freedom Blast event.

The Regions Bank Tower is located at One Indiana Square; that’s Monument Circle, the middle of Indianapolis. This central location makes viewing Indianapolis’ fireworks display easy. I recommend taking lawn chairs or blankets to Military Park, University Park, or even just relaxing on the steps of IUPUI’s library.

Celebrate the Fourth of July in Indianapolis with your family all day. The Indianapolis State Museum, War Memorial, and many other downtown Indianapolis locations offer special family events before the night’s fireworks begin. Try the Eiteljorg Museum, on Washington and West Street. Admission to the Museum is free from 10 am to 5pm on July 4. The Eiteljorg’s Canal Family Fest begins at 4:30pm, sponsoring games, crafts, music, and more. Sky City Café will cater a BBQ buffet for $18.95 for adults and $9.95 for kids. Either stay and watch Indianapolis’ fireworks display from the Café’s terrace for a peaceful evening along the Canal, or walk down the block on West Street for an Indian’s game and a view of the Freedom Blast from Victory Field.

For truly outstanding seats, go to the Indianapolis Indians game at Victory Field on Saturday, July 4. The Indianapolis Indians battle the Louisville Bats beginning at 6pm. After the game, stay to see Victory Field’s own fireworks display before Indianapolis’ launches Freedom Blast at 9:45. Visitors are welcome keep their seats for Indiana’s largest fireworks display. Indianapolis Indians tickets run $9-13 for adults and $8-12 for kids 14 and under.

Regardless of how you celebrate the Fourth of July in Indianapolis, whether by the canal, at the museums, at the ballpark, or in your own special way, remember to practice safety with all personal fireworks. And definitely don’t miss Indianapolis’ Freedom Blast, the largest fireworks display in Indiana. It will be a night to remember for you and you’re family!

2009 New Jersey Sport Fishing Restoration Grants

The Sport Fish Restoration Program, which is one of the programs funded and authorized by the Dingell-Johnson/Wallop Breaux Act established in 1950, awards grants that improve recreational boating and fishing opportunities throughout the nation. The funding for these grants comes from a 3% tax on electric motors, a 10% tax on fishing equipment, import duties on fishing tackle as well as pleasure yachts and boats, motorboat and small engine fuel tax and interest earned on the Sport Fish Restoration Trust Fund.

The United States Fish and Wildlife Service is responsible for administering the Sport Fish Restoration Program grants that are awarded to state agencies throughout the nation, such as the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife. In 2009, the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife was awarded 4 grants. These 4 grants were the Research in Freshwater Fisheries Management Project, the Artificial Reef Programs, the New Jersey Fish, Wildlife and Anadromous Fishery Coordination Project and the Fish Culture and Stocking Project.

The Research in Freshwater Fisheries Management Project is funded by a $157,159 grant and runs from December 22, 2008 through October 31, 2009. This grant provides funding for research and management along with restoration of the American trout population located in the Raritan and Delaware rivers. It also provides funding for surveying anglers in the Delaware River, for surveying trout populations and habitats, for studying the Round Valley Reservoir and the effects on it from trout management and trophic level production. This grant is also responsible for funding the continued research of fish populations and landlocked salmon and for protecting the New Jersey fish population and habitats.

The Artificial Reef Programs are funded by a $250,000 grant and continue from December 22, 2009 until November 30, 2009. This grant provides funding for maintaining artificial reefs and increasing the fish populations that depend on them.

The New Jersey Fish, Wildlife and Anadromous Fishery Coordination Project is funded by a $95,625 grant and extends from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009. This grant provides funding for coordinating fish and wildlife projects.

The Fish Culture and Stocking Project is funded by a $700,000 grant and runs from January 13, 2009 until December 13, 2009. This grant provides funding for stocking and managing sport fish populations in New Jersey.

The Sport Fish Restoration Program, which funds many grants, provides a cycle that begins and ends with the user of the facility where the grant has been awarded. The funds that are spent getting to the water and while on the water often help fund the grant that is awarded to make improvements as deemed necessary. Improvements such as the ones for which these grants have been awarded in the State of New Jersey create a safer and more accessible way for boaters and anglers to enjoy the vast bodies of water throughout New Jersey. The fund established by the Dingell-Johnson/Wallop Breaux Act enables boaters and anglers to invest in the recreational pastime that they choose each and every time they venture out on the water. Grants awarded by The Sport Fish Restoration Program are calculated using a formula that includes land area, the number of paid license holders as well as minimums and maximum. These grants are disbursed on a reimbursement basis of up to 75% of the cost of the project and up to 100% of the cost of projects for United States territories.

2009 Iditarod: The Race to Nome

The Iditarod of 2009 begins on Saturday, March 7th. The starting point is Anchorage , Alaska and the finish line is in Nome. A distance of over 1150 miles across Alaska. This race is expected to last anywhere from ten to seventeen days. Known as ”the toughest race”, ”the last great race on Earth” and ”the race to Nome.”

Each year teams comprised of a musher and their sled 16 dogs train for this grueling but exhilarating race that first began in 1973. To complete the 1150 mile journey much planning, preparation and training is necessary. In fact the teams that are going to race this year have been preparing since last year’s race. The summer months the mushers exercise their dogs regularly but on more of a recreational level such as jogging, hiking and playing vigorously. In the fall the harnesses are introduced and practice trails such as one mile runs are began with many dogs. Sometimes twenty or thirty. From these dogs the best sixteen are chosen from. From late fall into winter the dogs are trained to do their job and adjust to the ganglines that connect them to the other dogs and the sled. Late winter the dogs are trained to build up their stamina and endurance with runs from thirty to fifty miles long. It isn’t just the dogs that need preparation. All food for the trip and supplies must be packaged and accounted for. There are eighteen checkpoints on the trail with certain supplies designated for drop off at each check point to be retrieved during the race. These supplies usually include spare sled parts, food for both the dogs and musher and extra mittens.

The Iditarod is not typical of other sporting events in that there are not divisions that separate men from women or professional from amateur. All participants are on equal footing for the prize, provided that they pay the whopping entry fee of four thousand dollars, fill out the numerous forms, run the qualifying races and are at least eighteen years of age. The winner of the Iditarod wins $68,000 cash and a new Dodge Ram truck. Don’t despair though for those who don’t win. Every musher that crosses the finish line receives $1049.00 cash. The last team that crosses the finish line has the honor of extinguishing the famous ”Widows Lamp” in Nome that burns continuously from the beginning of the race. It is like the Olympic Torch of the sled dog race.

2009 Hyundai Sonata

Earlier on this year my wife and I went on a trip to Florida. On our arrival to the airport we proceeded to the car rental location which happened to be Budget. We had originally booked up a compact car and were told that it would be the Chevy Aveo! I am a big guy and decided that would not work so we asked to upgrade and they told us they had a 2009 Hyundai Sonata SE available! This was a car that my wife and I had discussed buying to replace our aging Impala so we decided to rent the Sonata to see how it fared, this review is based on the 12 days that we had the car!

In my opinion Hyundai is a car manufacturer that has come on in leaps and bounds in the last few years. When they first entered the American market their cars were inexpensive and not very reliable, and then came along the new Sonata and that history is now well behind them. The car we had was navy blue, a really nice deep blue that had a great shine to it.

The design of the car looks similar to that of the Honda Accord, the only main differences in the design between the two are the rear lights and the headlights, and otherwise aesthetically it is the same car. The SE model which we had comes standard with 17″ alloy wheels that gave the car a sporty look and feel, wing mirrors and bumpers were also painted the same color as the rest of the car giving a great look overall. Around the back of the car you will see a dual exhaust (on the 3.3 V6 Models) which again adds to the sporty feel of this car! The design of the car is very nice indeed.

The interior of the car is actually a little disappointing. It reflects back a little on the cheap feeling some people still associate with Hyundai. The materials look and feel a little cheap, lots of plastic, don’t get me wrong everything functions perfectly well i guess i was just hoping for a little more refinement. The seats were incredibly comfortable. We had cloth seats; i think leather seats are reserved for the limited editions.

The driver’s seat was fully electric and could be moved in any way so you can get that just right feeling for yourself! The steering wheel was leather wrapped that gave a little feel of refinement, the steering wheel actually felt great when in your hands. Located on the steering wheel you will also find the cruise control buttons as well as stereo controls. You can control the stereo without ever taking your hands off the steering wheel!

The dashboard is very well laid out and all of the dials were easy to read. There is also a trip computer that is located just beneath the speedometer. It can display local time; distance traveled, time traveled, average speed and average MPG! The various statistics can be changed with a little button that is located by the side of the steering wheel! The driver’s side door has all the usual controls one would expect to find. Electric window controls for all of the windows in the car, a window lock button, electric mirror control, door locks etc.

The layout of the main dash console is what disappointed me. The whole thing looks very 1983. The stereo is large with a garish green glow and a large LCD display. The plus side of the stereo is that is can play back MP3 Cd’s, so you can put a couple hundred songs on a cd and listen to your heart’s content. The stereo actually sounds great! The speakers deliver clean rich sound and they provide adequate bass response! It will not blow your socks off but it will certainly make listening to your favorite music pleasurable!

Then A/C and heater controls fall right below the stereo. The controls again are very large and look a little odd, but they feel sturdy and do not feel like they will break, again everything functions very well, i just wish that they had taken the time to make the controls a little more pleasing on the eye.

Beneath the AC / heater controls there is a fold down storage compartment for a cell phone or Ipod or anything else that you desire to hide in there. The cup holders are big, large enough to hold a couple of bug gulps side by side, which is always nice, especially when it is 100 degrees outside! Above the rear view mirror there is a fold down sun glass holder which is a nice touch as well; I did not know it is there, until i really started looking. This is great because you can hide your expensive glasses in there and no one will see them.

The Sonata is a very spacious car. I am 6’3″ And I had no problems whatsoever getting in and out in this car, not just in the driver’s seat but the passenger’s seat and the rear seats as well. The Sonata will comfortably hold 5 large adults and everyone will have ample room while in the car. The trunk is also large and spacious you could fit a whole ton of shopping back there, as i found out after the wife visited several shopping outlets. Overall the inside of the car is nice and comfortable and I have no major gripes apart from the retro 80’s looking main console layout!

How does this car perform I hear you ask? Fantastic is the answer! There are two engine models available. A 2.4 liter 4 cylinder that puts out 162HP or a 3.3 liter V6 234HP engine. The SE that we had had the 3.3 v6, and oh my does it want to get up and go! The 3.3 V6 is married to a 5 speed automatic transmission and in the SE you also have the option of controlling the gear shifting. When you look at the gear selector which is located between the 2 front seats you will see your usual suspects. P,D,N,R 1,2 but then to the right of those controls you will also see a + and a -. When driving you can manually shift the automatic gears, which is a great feature, one which is usually found on much higher end cars!

I cannot speak for the 4cyl but the V6 is whisper quiet when you start the car up. After positioning myself I was ready to take this car on the open road. The performance of this vehicle is quite superb. When you hit the gas the car really moves and there is a very satisfying roar that comes from the engine, almost sports car like! 0 to 60 in the Sonata takes 7.5 seconds which is faster than the newest Toyota Camry. The engine at cruising speed is still whisper quiet; the interior cabin noise is next to nothing which absolutely blew my mind. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly and seamlessly up through the gears, Using the manual shifter is also very satisfying in this car!

We took several long trips in this car while in Florida! One day we drove from Kissimmee to New Smyrna Beach, which is about 120 miles each way. I can honestly say that the whole driving experience was one of the best driving experiences that I have ever had! The ride quality is absolutely breathtaking; it almost feels as if you are driving on a bed of air! The car handles like it is on rails! The steering is sharp and very responsive giving the driver the utmost confidence in the cars abilities. The fuel efficiency of the Sonata is also a huge talking point. The 3.3 V6 does a respectable 23 / 24 MPG around town and 32 MPG on the interstate! I watched these numbers closely on the onboard computer while driving around Florida! These are very impressive numbers for quite a large engine!

Apart from the main dash console design which in all honesty, looks a little outdated this car is phenomenal! The ride quality rivals that of higher end luxury cars. The performance of the 3.3 V6 engine is breath taking and the fuel efficiency make this care an absolute winner. Hyundai wants to be the 5th largest car maker in the world by the end of 2010 and if they keep making quality vehicles like the Sonata then they will be well on their way.
