I’m not one to get political and usually stay away from all of that, but to be honest I just couldn’t stay silent any further.“This song is a message to the Irish government and its people to do better. People need to take more responsibility for keeping everyone safe. It’s been an extremely tough time but we need to keep going and trying our best.“This song also asks the government to take a look at some of their guidelines and to take extreme consideration in what they said so they don’t contradict themselves. For example one of the lyrics in the song is, “200 in a shop, still not allowed, 6 in a house what’s that about”. The rules need to start making sense if there is ever going to be progress.”Luke said, “We are a voice for young people and all people in Ireland. Ger really wanted to have our voice heard and we think this song best represents the frustrations we are all feeling right now going through this pandemic.” Email Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limericklast_img read more

Doc Rivers still haunted by Clippers’ bad losses

first_imgIt was a valid question with the Clippers are playing better than they were a month ago when they were waxed by the team that took them to seven games in the first round of last season’s Western Conference playoffs.“No, no, that one feels like yesterday, as far as I’m concerned,” said Rivers, whose team will host the New Orleans Pelicans at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Staples Center.Why? Rivers was asked.“Because we got beat pretty bad and those don’t go away,” he said. “The wins go away quickly.”Even going 6-1 on the recent road trip couldn’t wipe away the memory of that nightmare. “No, the wins go away, but the losses don’t go away,” Rivers reiterated. “Memphis and Golden State.”Apparently, the 107-91 loss Nov. 23 at Memphis — the only loss on that seven-game road trip — also haunts Rivers. The 15-3 Grizzlies are second in the Western Conference behind Golden State (15-2). The Clippers (13-5) — winners of six consecutive games and eight of nine — are tied with San Antonio for sixth.The Clippers will get a chance for revenge when they host Golden State on Christmas night at Staples Center. The Clippers will have to wait until Feb. 23 to get back at Memphis, which that night will visit Staples Center.Rivers: O’Quinn’s flagrant 2 foul warrantedKyle O’Quinn of the Orlando Magic was charged with a flagrant 2 foul on Blake Griffin on Wednesday night when O’Quinn raked Griffin hard across the face as Griffin was charging to the basket in the second quarter.Griffin, who hit the deck, said although he took a good shot to the face, he was surprised O’Quinn was assessed the flagrant 2 and ejected.Rivers thought it was the right call.“That’s a flagrant 2 in this generation,” he said. “I don’t think he was trying to hurt Blake or anything like that. It was a hard foul, and the way the game’s called now, it has to be a flagrant 2.”Orlando’s Channing Frye chimes inWhen O’Quinn was called for the foul on Griffin, the Magic had whittled a 15-point first-quarter deficit down to 38-35. The Clippers went on an 8-2 run on the heels of the incident and Orlando never recovered.With O’Quinn gone, the Magic were missing their starting center — Nikola Vucevic was out with back spasms — and their backup. To Orlando power forward Channing Frye, that was too much to overcome.“We know Kyle and we know that there was not anything malicious about that,” Frye said. “They (O’Quinn and Griffin) are 250-pound men. These are two gigantic oxen going up. But that’s the way it went, and I think emotionally we just felt kind of let down from that and they took advantage of us.”This and thatRivers will be coaching against his son, Austin, when the Pelicans (8-8) come to town Saturday. Austin Rivers, a 22-year-old shooting guard in his third season, is averaging 6.6 points while averaging 21.8 minutes off the bench. … Clippers point guard Chris Paul is shooting 53.3 percent from the field, 42.6 percent from 3-point range — both career-highs.

School Board to Honor Manhas at Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by North Thurston Public SchoolThe North Thurston Public Schools Board of Directors will honor former superintendent Raj Manhas at a ribbon-cutting and naming ceremony at 6:00 p.m., July 24 at 200 Sleater-Kinney Road NE (next to North Thurston High School). The public is invited to attend the brief ceremony, followed by light refreshments. Please RSVP to [email protected] served as Superintendent of North Thurston Public Schools from 2009-2016. His passion for community engagement and systems-wide structures resulted in positive changes in the district, including a historical $175 million bond in 2014. Manhas also helped start the Compassionate Community Initiative in Lacey; recently NTPS students demonstrated their compassion by raising $27,000 for the new Lacey Food Bank.“Raj had a huge passion for community engagement and a vision for the future of North Thurston Public Schools,” said Board President Graeme Sackrison. The School Board voted to dedicate part of the 65,000 sq. ft. building shortly before Manhas retired in 2016. It was purchased with existing capital funds in 2014 for $ 2.2 million.Formerly a local health club, the renovated portion of the “Rajinder S. Manhas Activity Center” includes a new gym and restroom facilities (about 14,000 sq. ft.) as well as a space for furniture and equipment storage during school remodels, including North Thurston High School and Pleasant Glade Elementary.“The Raj Manhas Activity Center is a wonderful, public facility which patrons can utilize for many activities and events. Gym facilities are in high demand in our community and we know the new space will be scheduled quickly. We are committed to promoting healthy activities for our children during and after the school day. Thanks to our strong partnership with Lacey Parks and Recreation, children participate in healthy activities year round by using school district facilities and fields. We are excited to share this new space with the community!” said Superintendent Dr. Debra Clemens. She noted that the space has saved the district significant time and money. “The extra storage space within the facility is saving the district thousands of dollars per month in storage fees and the close proximity to North Thurston High School supports its renovation. Our construction projects are under budget and on schedule for school openings.”The front of the building has yet to be modernized; it currently houses the South Sound Reading Foundation and the district’s Homeless Assistance/McKinney-Vento program. Future permanent use of that portion of the building will be determined in part by the Facility Advisory Committee, which looks at construction needs for the growing district. If you are interested in serving on this committee please contact the District at 360-412- 4416.last_img read more
