  • you a plan that I am working on in hopes of getting the attention of our local Congressmen Congresswomen to support HR 2550 We at the DRYL have stressed the importance to our Delegates to please go back to their clubs and ask the members to contact their local Congressman and Congresswomen and I am sure you have done the same Many phone calls have been made many emails and letters sent out and doors knocked on yet here we are with just 2 Congressman Congresswoman from Penna 3 from NJ 2 from MD and 1 from VA that have signed up to co sponsored HR 2550 As Opening Days Commodores Installations and club events are quickly coming upon us there is no better way to collect letters of support for HR 2550 from your club members and guests then to have them filled out by people as they are paying admittance fees to the event affair These form letters will be printed up in advance and should already have the local Congressman or Congresswomen names on them All that is required is to have each person print their name address phone number and sign A minute or so and they are done These letters then can be mailed in groups of 10 to that Congressman or Congresswomen not all at once The club having the event should determine which Congressman or Congresswomen in their area that has not signed on in support of HR 2550 and target them If all CBYCA clubs were to partake in this I am sure we would catch the eye of many more than what we have so far I am planning on appointing a Delegate to spearhead this for us and he she will be the contact for the clubs having the event

  • P & G Web Consulting - Ben Franklin Bridge
    of the river the island was totally removed by 1890 and perhaps a drawbridge to Philadelphia There were many proposals over the decades but nothing happened Besides the needs of farmers the popularity of the automobile and the desire to escape Philadelphia s summer heat and humidity to cottages in the countryside of New Jersey made a bridge imperative in the 1920s Cars waited at ferry crossings for hours One hot summer weekend in 1924 a 12 mile backup of cars waited for ferries to take them from New Jersey to Philadelphia As the region grew Philadelphians wanted to come to the South Jersey side to come to the shore and to resort communities on the Delaware River Diemer said There was a lot of movement going back and forth There would be countless studies and false starts before a bi state agreement was hammered out and work started on the bridge in January 1922 Instead of a symbolic shovel of earth two governors and two mayors removed planks from a pier to be demolished on the Philadelphia side Five riverfront sites had been studied from Spring Garden to Lombard streets Franklin Square was selected in part because the bedrock under the river at this point was best for the bridge While a number of engineers and architects participated in the big project the man given the lion s share of credit for the bridge s success was mild mannered Polish born chief engineer Ralph Modjeski At the time he was considered the leading bridge designer in the country Half of the costs of bridge construction would be paid by New Jersey which tied the project to a bond issue for the Holland Tunnel Pennsylvania and Philadelphia would each pay a quarter of the costs It was agreed that all construction materials would be American made It was really a marvel at its time Diemer said People were really amazed especially the people who saw it built The first major step in construction was sinking two huge airtight pressurized boxes called caissons Inside the caissons sand hogs with picks and shovels removed about 20 feet of sand and mud from the river bottom to hit bedrock The caissons then became molds filled with tons of concrete to create the piers that support the high steel towers that carry the bridge cables The bridge is 1 8 miles long but that s not what made it the longest suspension bridge in the world in 1926 It was the 1 750 feet of cable between the two supporting towers that count in this competition Both steel towers rise 380 feet above the water line Creating the cables involved stringing 18 666 wires one at a time from one side of the bridge to the other using a pulley device The wires are not woven together They are bundled into strands 306 wires per strand All that wiring from end to end would stretch more than 25 000 miles At the height of
