Six Months After Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico’s Road to Recovery is Being Made by Sea
20 03 2018
“Every time a load was delivered, it meant a water in the hand of someone in need. It meant food on a Puerto Rican table. It meant we were helping to open schools and hospitals. It meant Crowley was a part of a big effort to save lives."
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. March 20, 2018
It’s been called the most logistically challenging relief effort the United States has ever managed. When nearly Category 5 Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, it left a wake of destruction that residents and emergency responders are still reckoning with.
The road to recovery for an island like Puerto Rico is different from mainland locations. The American territory sits about 1,000 miles away from the closest city in the contiguous United States. Transportation of cargo, supplies and equipment requires specialized vessels or aircraft, even in good times. Such a requirement adds complications during a crisis when lives are on the line.
When the hurricane hit six months ago today, the U.S. government turned to...

D-backs Get New High Tech Turfgrass Installed at Chase Field, Giving Them a "Home Field Advantage" for Upcoming Season
20 03 2018
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Arizona Diamondbacks installed Platinum T.E. – a new variety of natural turfgrass sod – at Chase Field late last month in preparation for the 2018 season. Platinum T.E. can also be found on the World Series Champions Houston Astros field, Atlanta Braves field, and the Florida Marlins field.
Platinum was chosen after it was installed in the infield and arch during the All-Star break last season at Chase Field. D-backs heads groundskeeper, Grant Trenbeath, was so impressed with the performance of the grass that he decided to make the change.
“The Platinum has a shorter dormancy period than the bermuda so we were able to have it installed without the usual ryegrass overseed. It will be a huge advantage that we won’t have to go through the transition period from rye to bermuda during the season for the first time,” said Trenbeath.
The new sod was grown and installed by West Coast Turf (WCT), who also provides turfgrass for the Los Angeles Angels of...
