Streetscape - Phase 1
The bidding for the improvements on Railroad Street in Youngsville is about to begin.
"We hope Phase One will be ready to go to bid by fall. From the many public meetings, it has been established that the community wants Youngsville to be inviting like it used to be. Then, it can once again be a destination spot where families will come to enjoy the downtown," said Nancy Holmberg, R.O.Y. member. On May 9, two community leaders from the Revitalization Of Youngsville Association (ROY) met with the three Warren County Commissioners to discuss what has been done and what is required to complete the first phase of the infrastructure improvements.
Julie Coates of WICU12 News spoke to Youngsville High School students about her career in meteorology. Coates received her Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from Ohio University and took additional training in broadcasting at Ohio Center. She stressed, "We are the predictors, not the producers" of the weather. She talked about her career and how the weather keeps her "on her toes." For a 5 a.m. broadcast, she is in the studio at 1 a.m. In severe weather, her day may be 16 to 18 hours long. Julie described weather as "an actual story." Her broadcasting technique is to be conversational as she builds her story of a seven day forecast. She spoke fondly of Crawford, Warren, and Erie County, mentioning her family ties in the Albion and Erie area. Coates recommended that students who are interested in pursuing this career should have a good background in mathematics, science, and physics. A true weather geek, she actually does her own forecasting and designs all of the graphics. Brandais Buchanan, a senior who wants to major in meteorology and storm chasing, arranged for Coates to speak to her senior English class.
