The Connecticut Huskies look to go 4-0 to start the season as they host the Baylor Bears on Friday night.  This nationally televised game on ESPN 2 should have some offense in it as Baylor is coming off a game in which they scored 45 points in a win against Washington State while Connecticut scored 45 points in their rout of Virginia last week.  SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Connecticut at Home.


Connecticut has won its last five night games at Rentschler Field and boasts an all-time mark of 9-3 “under the lights” at Rentschler. UConn has won seven of its last eight non-conference games overall and will be a tough matchup for Baylor. “They are a good football team. They went 9-4 last year, won the Big East and went to a bowl game.” Baylor head coach Art Briles said, “They have 19 of 22 starters back. They are 26-8 at home over the last four years and they have won the last 8 or 9 in a row. They are a tough team.”   Baylor has turned things around somewhat this season under Briles. They routed Washington State last week as freshman Robert Griffin set a school record with 217 yards rushing.  He also passed for 129 yards in the win.

A Kmart store’s plan to create fast food restaurants in its parking lot ran into opposition from Plan Commission members Monday. The retailer asked the Plan Commission to create three lots for fast food restaurants and to change the traffic pattern through its parking lot at the corner of Willowcreek Road and U.S. 6.

A lawyer representing the retailer, Ron Grais, said Kmart has preliminary agreements with KFC, Arby’s Roast Beef and Schlotzsky’s Deli to create restaurants on the site. According to Kmart’s plan, the restaurants would be located in the store’s southern parking area that fronts U.S. 6.

Plan Commission members balked at a proposed access road located just behind the three restaurants. The access road would join the two U.S. 6 exits with another exit on Willowcreek Road. Under the plan, one of the three Willowcreek Road exits nearest to the intersection of U.S. 6 would be closed. An access road that runs from east to west through the center of the parking lot would also be closed. web site fast food restaurants

Plan Commission members said the proposed access road was dangerous because all of the store’s parking aisles would lead directly into it.

“We’re telling you we want to see some changes to these plans,” said Plan Commission member Timothy Hill. “Limit the access points.” Kmart officials said closing off the ends of some of the parking aisles so they didn’t join the access road would be a hazard. Traffic traveling south from the store would have to turn around if it didn’t find a parking space. this web site fast food restaurants

“I can’t imagine anything more dangerous than a customer trying to back up that aisle,” said Randolph Douglass, a Kmart development manager.

Albert Monroe, the Portage planning director, said some of the accesses could be closed if a turnaround was created at the end of the aisles by eliminating some parking spaces.

The Plan Commission voted to table the motion to approve the subdivision. It said the developer should meet with city planning officials to come up with a better design.

In other business, the Plan Commission gave developer Kerry Wilson final plat approval to construct a 68-lot subdivision on Central Avenue. The approval is contingent on solving certain drainage problems near the site. THIS ELECTRONIC VERSION MAY DIFFER SLIGHTLY FROM THE PRINTED VERSION.
