Kenai to Pick Up Land Donation and Sales Issues

first_imgThe Council has also been asked to provide a matching grant of $10,000 for the restoration of an historic Kenai fire truck. Koch: “You may recall that was in the 2017 budget and I was asked by several members of Council to see if there was funding that could be used from the 2016 budget and there are funds that could be used for that purpose and so it’s going before Council for their consideration this evening as well.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai City Council will work through a list of housekeeping items during tonight’s regular meeting, before addressing possible land donations and sales.

Heaven in Powell’s corner – JCA boss backs all-rounder for Tallawahs captaincy

first_imgPresident of the Jamaica Cricket Association, Wilford ‘Billy’ Heaven, says he is not surprised by the decision of the management of the Jamaica Tallawahs to leave captain Chris Gayle off their roster for this season’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL) competition. The Tallawahs are set for a major shake-up ahead of the start of this season after a disappointing campaign last season, when they finished at the foot of the points table. The Jamaican franchise lost eight games and won only two. Floyd Reifer is also expected to take over as head coach, replacing Donovan Miller, while Gayle has joined up with the Daren Sammy-led St Lucia Zouks. Heaven told The Sunday Gleaner that he is backing the appointment of all-rounder Rovman Powell to lead the Tallawahs. “I was not totally surprised by this move by the Tallawahs, and to be honest, I expected changes to be made,” said Heaven. “I figured that the Tallawahs would have to send a message in order to continue to get support, and so I think this is their way to send a strong message,” he said. “I believe the management and the owners of the Tallawahs are making a business decision, and they are looking at the fact that last year the Tallawahs placed last,” Heaven said. He added: “I think the decision about Chris is a business one, that they could not continue with business as usual in the midst of coming last in the tournament last year. I believe that you have to make changes. Chris is a high-profile player and they (Tallawahs management) figure that this will send the right message.” Powell captained the Tallawahs in two matches last season before injury put an end to his campaign. INTELLIGENT CRICKETER Heaven underlined that the 26-year-old Powell has grown to become a very intelligent cricketer over the years and he will back any decision to appoint him as the next captain of the Tallawahs. “I would support Rovman’s appointment because he captained the West Indies (T20) for three matches. It is our view that he has the potential and will be a capable player once he settles down,” Heaven said. “He will get the respect of all the other players because they are generally in the same age group, and if you notice with the Jamaica team, all of the players are really peers, and in any activity that requires teamwork that is very important,” he added.last_img read more

The demons that haunted David Klemmer

first_imgNRL Michael Chammas Chief Reporter Some nights, David Klemmer closes his eyes and pleads with himself. “Please don’t wake up. Please don’t wake up. You’re OK.” Three to four times a week he will wake up not knowing where he is, sometimes screaming into the darkness. Klemmer suffers from night terrors. At least he thinks that’s what it is. “I don’t know if I’m a weirdo,” Klemmer says of the nightmares he has had since he was eight years old. “I probably should go see someone about it, shouldn’t I?” “I’ve been doing that since I was a kid. “One of the first nights I stayed at my missus’ (family home) I went through it. Her family thought someone had a machete and was cutting me up, that’s how loud I was screaming.” His wife Chloe, who was his girlfriend at the time, slept through the whole thing. “There was no sleeping in the same bed for the first couple of years, so she was in a different room,” Klemmer says with his trademark booming laugh. But her parents, John and Julie, were horrified to walk in to see their daughter’s boyfriend standing on the bed copping repeated hits to the head from the ceiling fan while yelling “get off me, who are you?”. Chloe says: “They were like ‘what the hell has our daughter brought home? Who is in our house?’.” Listening to Klemmer explain it, you don’t know whether to laugh, end the interview or do a Google search for ways to help. Until now, he hasn’t really divulged some of the reasons for wanting to depart the Bulldogs. But on the eve of his first trial at the Newcastle Knights, he skims the surface of what he has been battling. “I’ve got stuff going on in my head,” he says. “I’ve always doubted myself. As a person, as a player – I’ve always doubted myself. You’ve got this expectation to be a player, a role model. I’ve always doubted that. “Just going to the shops I’ve always got anxiety about people looking at me. It’s something I had to deal with. You know how I am – I’m just a big kid. I don’t know. It’s just how I am. I like to keep to myself.” What you see from Klemmer on a football field – the crazy eyes and the white line fever – is far from what you get off the field. But the assumption of his character that people form from his on-field behaviour is often hard to ignore. “When I go out, that’s the perception people get,” Klemmer said. “They think you’re that all the time. Obviously on the footy field, if I come across you, that’s how it will be. But off the field people expect you to be this big angry person 24-7. “I struggle to deal with that. People are always trying to stir you up to get you angry. “There’s a lot at risk if I slip up and do something like that. I’ll lose a lot of things.” When you sit back and listen to what Klemmer has been through and experienced, it’s hard to imagine how he managed to get himself in the position he now finds himself in both as a professional footballer and a father of three boys that he adores. As a teenager, Klemmer rebelled. He hung out with the wrong crowd and any chance of forging a career out of rugby league looked unlikely. “I thought I was invincible,” he says.last_img read more

How football strengthens your character as a student

first_imgAs the popular saying goes, work without play makes Jack a dull boy. This saying is often used to encourage students to play. Participating in sports helps you exercise. And this improves your physical and mental health. Students who don’t participate in any kind of sports are usually dull, lazy, and irritable. Failure to play and exercise will not only harm your health but also your grades. AdChoices广告Today, most learning institutions offer a wide range of sporting activities to ensure that all students exercise and have fun. In this article, we are going to discuss how football strengthens your character as a student. Let’s get started!1. It reduces anxiety and depression levelsCollege life can be full of disappointments that can lead to anxiety and depression. There are a lot of ways that students can use to relieve themselves of stress, anxiety, and depression. In most cases, students abuse drugs and pills. Abusing drugs offers temporary relief. However, it doesn’t help you solve your problems. One of the best ways to relieve stress and anxiety is by playing football. Playing reduces stress and stimulates the release of endorphins which are nature’s happy drug.2. Improves concentrationIf you tend to lose concentration in class, playing football is one of the best ways to eliminate this problem. Sporting activities like football are of great help because they include a mix of aerobic and strength training. Football keeps your mind sharp and this enables you to think critically and make informed decisions. As a result, your grades get better. You should find time to play every day for a few minutes.3. Improves moodsAs we said earlier, playing football relieves stress and improves your mood by triggering the brain to release endorphins and other hormones that make you feel relaxed and happy. You should consider joining the football club at your college. This will help you feel engaged, improve your social skills and mental health.4. Boosts self-esteem and confidenceSelf-esteem and confidence play an important role in the life of a student. Playing football helps you set short term and long term goals. When you write down your academic goals and check edubirdie service, you are forty times more likely to achieve them. It also allows players to set team goals. Your goals will vary from scoring to being the best player on the field. When you start achieving these goals, your self-esteem and confidence will naturally go up. Having confidence accelerates your growth and helps you achieve bigger goals.5. Improves social skillsPlaying football gives you the opportunity to interact with other players and society as a whole. You’ll get to meet old friends and new people who can change your life for the better. Socializing will not only relieve stress but also present opportunities that can transform your life. You cannot imagine a successful person who cannot communicate. Developing your social skills is critical for your future.6. Improves the quality of sleepAfter studying for hours, you may find it difficult to sleep comfortably. However, by spending a couple of minutes during the day in high-intensity activities like football, you’ll naturally improve the quality of your sleep. The more tired you are, the easier you’ll fall asleep. Sleep is a basic need just like food or water. Sacrificing your sleep can lead to stress, poor concentration, irritability, and a weak immune system. If you experience difficulty in sleeping, you should consider creating a bedtime routine or seeking medical help as soon as possible.7. TeamworkLike many other games, football is all about teamwork. There is nothing much you can do without the cooperation of others. By working together with your team, you’ll get to understand and respect them. To promote your business or accelerate your career growth, you’ll need to cooperate with others.ConclusionThere are a lot of benefits associated with sports that cannot be ignored. Every student needs to find time every day to play with others. Don’t sacrifice your playtime or sleep for classwork. Otherwise, you’ll end up harming your health and grades. Managing your time effectively will help you stay on top of things and have time to relax with friends. Most colleges today offer a wide range of sporting activities to help students develop critical skills and strengthen their characters. When you start playing football today, you’ll experience most of the things that we’ve discussed here today. Slow growth is better than nothing at all.Author Bio:Paul Calderon is a professional writer and proofreader. He is interested in topics such as business, academics, health, and lifestyle.

Hazlewood, Marsh named Australia’s joint test vice-captains

first_imgSYDNEY,  (Reuters) – Paceman Josh Hazlewood and all-rounder Mitch Marsh were named joint vice-captains of the Australia test team on Thursday under a new leadership structure installed in the wake of this year’s ball-tampering scandal. Hazlewood and Marsh will support captain Tim Paine and be the permanent replacements for David Warner, who was stripped of the post and banned from international and state cricket for 12 months for his role in the incident in South Africa.Previous captain Steve Smith was also banned for a year, while batsman Cameron Bancroft was suspended for nine months for trying to alter the condition of the ball during the third test against the Proteas in Cape Town in March.“We are extremely fortunate to have such terrific young men charged with responsibility of upholding the high standards and values we and Australian cricket fans expect of their test team,” chief selector Trevor Hohns said in a news release. “Josh has shown he is a leader among the playing group, and we felt it was important to have a representative from the bowling group. He’s calm under pressure, communicates well and leads by example on and off the field.“He is an extremely popular member of the team, he has great humility, and given his lineage, he understands and respects the responsibility which comes with representing Australia and Australians.”Marsh’s father Geoff played 50 tests for Australia and was a test selector, while his batsman brother Shaun is a regular test player who was included in the squad for next month’s test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates. Hazlewood will miss the trip to the Gulf of Arabia because of injury but is certain to return for the home series against India and Sri Lanka later this year and early next.Marsh has sometimes been a divisive figure among Australian cricket fans and his disciplinary record is not unblemished, his most recent indiscretion coming when he was fined for using offensive language during the second test against South Africa.A former captain of Australia A, the Australia under-19s and Western Australia, Marsh is, however, a popular figure among the players and has been tipped as a future test captain by several luminaries of the game.last_img read more
