GREEN BAY – The annual teddy bear toss was a giant success again this year at the Resch Center.

Fans threw the stuffed animals on the ice at Saturday’s Gamblers hockey game after the first goal.

Even though the score was eventually overturned, the ice was covered with teddy bears.

The thirteenth year was the best so far, collecting almost 7,988 animals.

Last year’s event gathered a little more than 7,000.

And Monday, those bears were delivered to children at area hospitals.

Happy New Year from Krueger Gauge

We hope everyone had a great holiday, and I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

A few quick facts from Wisconsin:

  1. We did not have a price change this year, but we did vastly improve our price book.  If you want one and don’t get one soon, let us know.
  2. The Green Bay Packers are 15-1 and heading to the Playoffs.  I would like to gloat that the Lions could not even beat us with our back up QB in the game, but that kind of bragging would be premature.  Much like Suh’s silly celebration during the game when he got a sack.  I will not stoop to such lows.  Our goal is the Super Bowl.
  3. The Wisconsin Badgers are in the Rose Bowl for the second straight year.  Win or Lose, it has been a great year for them.  I will be leaving work early today so as not to miss the game.
  4. The fax machine had over a hundred orders on it this morning after our week off.  After a strong 2011 it looks like 2012 is starting off pretty good.
  5. It was below zero this morning when I came into work.  Looks like winter is finally here.  For those of you in Florida and other warm locales, when you call and tell me about your 80 degree weather it just makes me mad…  So let’s just keep that to yourself…

Happy New Year to all from all of us at Krueger Sentry Gauge.

Pennsylvania Aboveground Storage Tank Regulations

Inspectors from the state Department of Environmental Resources are ramping up efforts to find unregistered fuel storage tanks, as one local farmer discovered when he was recently fined by the DEP because he had not obtained a permit for his 8,000-gallon tank.

Why the increased scrutiny?

According to DEP spokesman Kevin Sunday, there was no one specific instance that sparked the agency’s actions to seek out unregistered fuel tanks.

“This is something that the department has been aware of for some time,” Sunday said, “and with the winter months coming up, we wanted to get everyone on board.”

The DEP’s effort, Sunday said, “is to make sure we register both in-ground and above-ground tanks that are not currently registered.”

So in October, DEP sent letters to 1,172 fuel oil providers across the state asking them to help find unregistered tanks. Fuel distributors are required to ask the tank owner to provide a DEP-issued registration certificate before any fuel (gasoline, diesel fuel or kerosene) can be placed in the tank.

“If the distributors deliver product to an unregistered storage tank, they are also liable for any damages” that may occur if fuel escapes from a leaky tank, Sunday said.

If DEP is not aware of unregistered tanks, it cannnot conduct routine inspections on them and the tanks could pose a threat to the environment if the tank or its pipes fail.

Pennsylvania DEP is ramping up it’s AST regulations.
First off, be sure your tank is registered:
Once your tank is registered, you need to be sure that you pass regular inspections.

Diesel fuel leak closes UC Berkeley’s Stanley Hall

A university employee posts a warning sign by Strawberry Creek after a diesel fuel spill closed…

BERKELEY — Emergency crews from five different agencies spent Sunday cleaning up a diesel fuel leak that closed UC Berkeley’s Stanley Hall and seeped into nearby Strawberry Creek.

A pump valve failure for a diesel fuel storage tank for an emergency generator in the basement of Stanley Hall is being blamed for 1,700 gallons of fuel leaking into the basement and eventually into Strawberry Creek and the San Francisco Bay, according to university spokeswoman Janet Gilmore.

A campus police officer noticed an odor of diesel fuel coming from Strawberry Creek around 7 p.m. Saturday, Gilmore said. After an investigation, employees from the Office of Environment, Health and Safety discovered the leak and closed the building, which is the largest research building on campus and home to the university’s bioengineering department.

The leak was contained by 9 p.m. Saturday but an unspecified amount of fuel seeped into Strawberry Creek through pumps in the basement of Stanley Hall.

The emergency generator tank needs to constantly hold enough gas to power the building for 24 hours should there be an emergency, Gilmore said. It’s regularly tested to be sure it’s working, and as those tests use fuel, a dedicated storage tank sends the generator a top-off.

If the tank was equipped with our simple Overfill Alarm, this spill would have been detected sooner or possibly avoided altogether.  A 110 DB alarm would have signaled a problem, and helped to bring attention to the equipment failure.

Green Bay Packers Training Camp- Defensive Line

Of all the free agency losses this year, the one that hurt the most was Cullen Jenkins.  With no proven back up, replacing him on the line is a shot in the dark.  Packers fans have become accustomed to not panicking during free agency.  Every year guys leave and the Packers stick to there guns and there plans, young guys step up, and by the end of the year we don’t even remember the free agency panic we all went through.  This one could be different.

With no proven pass rusher at OLB opposite of Clay Matthews, Cullen Jenkins pass rush ability was what kept defenses honest and helped prevent double teams on Clay (or at least limit double teams).  Here is a depth chart of the D-Line.

  • Left Defensive End: Mike Neal, CJ Wilson, Lawrence Guy
  • Nose Tackle: Ryan Pickett, Howard Green
  • Right Defensive End: BJ Raji, Jarius Wynn

There are a few others, but for the purposes of this article, I am sticking to the top guys.  They have moved Raji from his natural nose tackle position into Jenkins old position.  This move has pros and cons.  The pros:  Pickett is able to go back to his best position at nose tackle after playing Left End last year.  Also, BJ Raji is likely the best candidate on the team for replacing Jenkins.  The cons:  BJ Raji is an awesome nose tackle.  Moving him scares me, but I look forward to be proven wrong.

I have no fears or concerns about Ryan Pickett and Howard Green in the middle.  These guys are effective run stuffers and anchors in the middle.  In the pass game they collapse the pocket and in the run game they force you to run around them.   I love it when the big guys in the middle drop anchor and suck up blocks.  It is such an under rated portion of the game.

At left end (or strong side) is Mike Neal or CJ Wilson.  Mike Neal is a little small for the spot, but he is the strongest player on the whole team which should balance out.  And when he has been in the line up he has shown flashes of brilliance.  Problem is, he has had bad luck with injuries.  I never label a player injury prone.  In most cases it is simple bad luck.  We cannot ignore, however, that he is a young player that needs reps and he currently is not getting them.

The Green Bay Packers are thin on the D-Line.  Hopefully the injury bug stays away and the young guys step up, but even if there are problems history says that the Packers don’t often use 3 down lineman anyway.  Have to find some way to get all of our awesome corners and safeties on the field.

Green Bay Packers Quarterbacks -Training Camp-

Aaron Rodgers looks sharp, despite the lack of practice time this year.  He has to be considered among the leagues elite quarterbacks.  He is in the Drew Brees category, just above guys like Phillip Rivers and Matt Ryan, and just below guys like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.  The factor that really boosts him up is his age.  He is younger than Manning and Brady, thus if I was choosing a dream QB to lead my team I would choose Rodgers over anybody right now.

Matt Flynn is in the final year of his contract, and I suspect he will be somewhere else next year.  He has starting quarterback written all over him, someone will pay him starters money, and there is no way the Packers will be able to afford him as a back up.  Some have suggested trading him first, but after Rodgers suffered two concussions last season I would lean toward keeping him around as security against the possibility that Rodgers may miss some time again this season.

Graham Harrell is your typical third stringer.  He shows promise and is an excellent QB.  His physical limitations may preclude him from ever being an elite prospect, but he is a damn good football player with an excellent college resume.

I have only two concerns with this years crop of QB’s.  The first is Rodgers concussion history.  My concern there is more for him than the team.  The team can survive him missing a game or two, I just hope the problem does not linger and threaten the young man’s long term health.  The second is the lack of a developmental QB on the roster.  With Flynn set to leave this year, I would like see a QB on the practice squad.
