BCHS project close to finishing

   The final phases of the Bay City High School Remediation Project should finish by October.  
   The project encompasses several phases and various updates and upgrades to the HV/AC system at BCHS.  
   “The majority of the work is to be done over the summer,” said mechanical engineer Ed Stacy.  
   “We removed two sections of roof from the academic building Saturday,” said Leonard Lane, an architect with Chelsea Place Design, Inc.  
   “It is water-tight right now, but not completely finished.”  
   Bids for the final Phase C will be due April 12 and include several other code violations that need to be addressed, said Lane.  
   For example, there is no sprinkler system in the gym, a lack of fire hoses backstage in the auditorium, replacing the windows on the south side of the cafeteria and proper insulation in storage rooms below interior stairwells.

Paddlers to Rally

   This year’s Paddlers’ Rally on the River will be Saturday, April 9, at Bay City’s Riverside Park. 
   Check-in will begin at 8 a.m., with the rally to begin at 9 a.m.
   Pre-registration is required. But, there is no fee involved.
   With an up-and-back route, paddlers can choose precisely how far, or long, they wish to float about - they can turn around wherever they desire along the 4.4 mile, one-way, 8.8 round-trip, river route.
   Rental kayaks are being provided for “boat-less” paddlers, at a reduced half-day rate, by LCRA, Matagorda Adventures and the Birding Nature Center (i.e., $25 per sit-on-top, single or tandem).
   The first 100 to enroll will be provided a handsome RALLY t-shirt, compliments of the Matagorda County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), to commemorate their on-the-water support of this natural resources tribute.
