Sam Pittman helped build UGA football’s foundation under Kirby Smart. Now he leads a major renovation job at Arkansas – Subscriber – Athens Banner-Herald

The fans who gathered at the Catfish Hole in Fayetteville gave a warm, socially distanced ovation and a masked Hog Call at the first “Sam Pittman Live” weekly radio show a couple of weeks ago.

The new Arkansas football coach and Chuck Barrett, the voice of the Razorbacks, did the hour with a Plexiglass divider on the stage.

“You know this right here, I used to see that like if it’s a bad band playing or something,” Pittman said. “And it shields you from all the stuff being thrown at you. I thought that’s what this is for. It’s for COVID?”

Pittman didn’t need to worry about any such reaction at Georgia where he assembled a talented cast of offensive linemen during his four seasons on Kirby Smart’s staff and was beloved by fans and players.

“He was a relationship-driven coach,” Smart said Monday. “His players just love him and

Grand Designs NZ: Extreme Piha beach-house build highlights stress of underestimating cost

REVIEW: There’s a lovely story at the start of this Grand Designs NZ episode – Joseph and Sooz Hardie used to jump the fence with a bottle of bubbles to sit outside an old bach on the clifftop at Piha.

They would lap up the view and pretend it was theirs. And then, lo and behold, the bach came on the market, and it did become their home. (See, dreams can come true.)

Six years later they demolish it to build a better one on the “perilously steep site”. This time, the living areas will be on the lower level, so there will be a flow out to the landscape, because Sooz says the old house felt more like an apartment, with no connection to the “whenua”.

Joseph and Sooz Hardie demolished an old bach that was their first home to build a stunning contemporary home high above Piha beach. They are pictured with Grand Designs NZ presenter Chris Moller (right).

Company still plans to build, no timeline for opening

CLOSE

STEVENS POINT – Meijer won’t open next year in Stevens Point, but the company still plans to build a new store eventually.

Meijer purchased 28 acres of land in 2017 on the northeast corner of Portage County R and HH, near the shopping plaza that is home to Walmart Supercenter, Kohl’s and Lowe’s Home Improvement. According to city documents filed in 2019, the company was in its planning stages and started applying for sign permits. Documents at that time indicated the store would likely open in 2021.

Frank Guglielmi, the senior director of corporate communications for Meijer, told a Stevens Point Journal reporter the company still owns the land and plans to eventually build a store. Guglielmi said the company’s building schedule can be fluid, and it has no timeline yet for construction or opening. Meijer is currently focused on construction for its 2021 stores, he said.

Virtual event to offer inspiration to build the next low-cost green homes

Simple and affordable ideas can be most effective when designing a house that allows owners to lower energy costs, live comfortably and help the environment.

Geelong homebuyers can learn how the owners of some of Australia’s best environmental homes have achieved their sustainability goals.

Belmont resident Fleur Pitman is joining more than 150 people offer virtual tours of their homes for Sustainable House Day on September 20.

Ms Pitman said the most important design element was orientating the house to face north and reducing a house’s footprint by creating more multi-function spaces like study-bedrooms and design entertainment units to eliminate separate media rooms.

“People don’t need to spend more money, they need to choose how to spend their money and what is that contributing to,” she said.
