You can help bring a smile to a child’s face this Christmas by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to the American Legion Post this Saturday as part of Operation Holiday.Jane ColeThe event will begin at 11:30 a.m. and end at 1:30 p.m. with the Lion’s Club serving a fundraiser lunch of hamburgers, hot dogs and fresh cut fries. All proceeds will benefit Operation Holiday.Letters are sent out to regular donors every year. One lady in particular who assisted with Operation Holiday was Colletta Dawson.“She would buy toys all throughout the year for Operation Holiday,” said Lion’s Club member Jane Cole said. “She put the toys in a tub, and when it was full, she would call me, and I would pick up the toys.”After Dawson’s death, her memorial fund was made to Operation Holiday, and the organization collected quite a bit of money that will benefit many families.Operation Holiday benefits children ages birth through 15 whose families face hardships, especially during the holidays. Last year, 70 families were assisted, which included 195 children. Of those families, 61 were from Wellington, and nine were from other towns within Sumner County.“People say the world is bad, but there are a lot of really good people in it,” Cole said.Families wishing to apply for the program can fill out a form at CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) beginning on Nov. 1, and must have them turned in by Dec. 6 so they volunteers can begin Christmas shopping.“On the form is a place to write what the child wants for Christmas, and it’s usually clothes, because that’s what they need,” said Cole.There is also a special needs application for those needing baby furniture, or other items, and those needs are normally filled by word of mouth.Last year during the toy run, $3,702.50 in cash was donated, and about $2,500 worth of toys.“We spent $1,800 just on clothes, and they were almost 100% bought in Wellington,” Cole said. “I made a trip to Wichita to Kohl’s when they had 50% and 70% off of Fisher Price toys, because a lot of times people don’t think of the babies.”Cole and her niece, Jamie Dodds, go clothes shopping in the middle of the night, then put the items in each family’s Christmas box.“If someone wants to donate toys and money, we will fill up the trailer with whatever they bring Saturday,” Cole said.Come help cheer on the toy run participants as they arrive at the American Legion with their donations, and enjoy lunch to benefit Operation Holiday.For questions contact Jane Cole at 326-5500.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Shell-shocked Barca suffer another defeat

first_imgBarcelona’s stuttering title bid suffered another setback when they lost 2-1 at home to Valencia on Sunday night, while Atletico Madrid moved level on points with the La Liga leaders after a comfortable win over Granda.Shell-shocked Barca have 76 points along with Atletico, who knocked the holders out of the Champions League in midweek, and remain top only due to a superior head-to-head record.Atletico earlier eased to a 3-0 home win over Granada after Fernando Torres grabbed his fourth goal in as many games with Koke and substitute Angel Correa also got on the scoresheet.Real Madrid, whose coach Zinedine Zidane said in February that the title race was over, thrashed Getafe 5-1 away on Saturday and stand just one point behind the leading pair,An own goal by Barca midfielder Ivan Rakitic put Valencia ahead after 27 minutes at the Nou Camp and Santi Mina added a second just before half-time to stun the Barca supporters.Lionel Messi scored his 500th career goal to reduce the deficit after 64 minutes but the struggling hosts, who have squandered a nine-point lead, could not find an equaliser.Despite Barcelona registering a third successive league defeat for the first time since 2003, Luis Enrique remained upbeat about his team’s chances of winning the title.“We’ve got a marvellous challenge, if we win the five games remaining we will be champions,” he told a news conference.“Of course, our credit has run out and we are aware of the challenge. We’re going to approach it like a Barca player always does, with our heads held high.”TOUGHER TIMEBarca humiliated a Valencia side coached by Gary Neville 7-0 in a King’s Cup semi-final game in February but had a much tougher time against successor Pako Ayesteran’s side and went behind when Guilherme Siqueira’s cross bounced off Rakitic and beyond Claudio Bravo.Barcelona forwards Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar each had efforts saved by the impressive Diego Alves, but Valencia continued to cause the home side problems on the break.Santi Mina increased the visiting side’s advantage just before halftime, receiving a pass from Dani Parejo and beating Bravo at the far post with a powerful driven effort.Messi turned in a low cross from Jordi Alba to end a drought of five games without scoring and net his 500th career goal, but a second proved elusive for the hosts.Valencia’s Alves produced a spectacular save to deny Rakitic late on and Barca defender Gerard Pique agonisingly missed the target at the near post in stoppage time.“We were better than Valencia in every aspect apart from effectiveness. We’ve dropped three points that we could have taken fairly but football is like that,” added Enrique.IDEAL STARTAtletico, boosted by a 2-0 Champions League second-leg win over Barca on Wednesday which put them into the semi-finals, got off to an ideal start against struggling Granada when Koke drilled a loose ball into the net on 15 minutes.Granada winger Ruben Rochina hit the post later in the half before Torres eased Atletico’s nerves by notching the second, latching onto a threaded pass by Koke to lift the ball over goalkeeper Andres Fernandez and into the far corner.Argentine forward Correa came on to replace Atletico’s top scorer Antoine Griezmann and made the most of his cameo appearance by racing onto a pass from Saul Niguez down the left and tucking the ball into the far bottom corner.Atletico will be without suspended captain Gabi for their trip to Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday, while Pique is banned for Barca’s visit to Deportivo La Coruna.“We have the chance to put in a big performance in Bilbao next week and keep competing in the four games we have left,’ Atletico coach Diego Simeone said.“It will be hard, but we will do what the fixture list demands and asks of us: win, win and win.”last_img read more

Seagulls end Magpies win streak

first_img “I think in the last few games we’ve been playing well and today also, and I think this win can give us a push for the next games and I think we deserve it,” Hemed told British broadcaster Sky Sports. “First of all, we need to win at home, of course. Away from home is difficult to get points. So first of all, we need to get as much as we can from the Amex. Also, we’re playing well and we will get enough points (to stay up) this season, I think.” Newcastle manager Benitez said Hemed’s goal should not have stood. “The goal, for me, was a foul; it’s a blocking in movement,” Benitez said. “He’s pushing and blocking in movement. And it’s so clear, but you cannot change the decision. I feel like we did enough to get a point at least. They had some chances. We had some chances. We had a lot of control and chances at the end. I think we deserved more.” WELL-PLAYED GAMES BRIGHTON, England (AP): Newcastle still cannot draw in the English Premier League (EPL). The Magpies lost 1-0 at Brighton yesterday to take their record to three wins and three defeats so far this season. Israel forward Tomer Hemed denied Newcastle the chance to move fourth, scoring his second EPL goal in manager Chris Hughton’s first win over former club Newcastle at the seventh attempt. Hemed finished smartly from Dale Stephens’ tee-up. Brighton moved 13th with its second win of the season after the clash between the league newcomers. Rafael Benitez’s men arrived boasting three straight league wins, but paid the price for Joselu’s glaring first-half miss in drawing a blank in front of goal. Hamed struck in the 51st minute, hooking the ball into the net after Pascal Gross’ free kick was headed down into the six-yard (metre) box by Stephens.last_img read more

Arsenal, Chelsea could face EPL play-off

first_imgThey have also scored two more goals than their London rivals but there is a combination of results on the season’s final day, when Chelsea play at home to Everton and Arsenal travel to Newcastle United, which would see them finish dead level.In the event of a Chelsea draw, if Arsenal were to win by a single goal margin and score two more than Chelsea, they would be equal on points, goal difference and goals scored, which would call for a historic application of the Premier League’s rule C14. Arsenal need victory at Newcastle to guarantee their Champions League qualification.The rule is to be used if an issue, such as the league championship or relegation places, remains unresolved after the season. The difference between finishing third or fourth is one such issue, as the third-placed team advances directly into the Champions League group stage while the one in fourth must contest a play-off.The rule reads: “If, at the end of the season, either the league champions or the clubs to be relegated or the question of qualification for other competitions cannot be determined because two or more clubs are equal on points, goal difference and goals scored, the clubs concerned shall play off one or more deciding league matches on neutral grounds, the format, timing and venue of which shall be determined by the Board.”The timing of a play-off would represent a headache for the Premier League. Chelsea have an end-of-season tour to the United States to play friendlies against Manchester City next week and then there are the England friendlies at home to the Republic of Ireland on 29 May and away in Brazil on 2 June. Neither Chelsea nor Arsenal would want the season to stretch into June. For Chelsea, the play-off would be the 70th game of their season.There has never been an end-of-season play-off in the Premier League, although the organisers did have to prepare for the possibility of one towards the end of the 1995-96 season when Manchester United and Newcastle United were vying for the title. The title play-off would have taken place at Wembley on either 16 or 21 May and a first run of tickets was printed.-The Guardian0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, England, May 16- Chelsea and Arsenal would face the prospect of an extraordinary end-of-season play-off to determine which club finished third in the Premier League if results on Sunday conspired to make them inseparable.Chelsea sit third in the table, two points clear of Arsenal in fourth and with a better goal difference of one. last_img read more

Kiongera eyes back top form with AFC

first_img0Shares0000KCB forward, Paul Mungai Kiongera when he was presented with his SPL Fans Player of the Month for August Award on September 15, 2015. PHOTO/CourtesyNAIROBI, Kenya, July 6- AFC Leopards new signing Paul Kiongera believes he can get back to top form despite suffering a lull in his career for the past six months with Tanzanian outfit Simba SC.Kiongera, a former KCB striker decided not to renew his contract with the Tanzanian giants and instead chose to move back home and Leopards pounced on his free agent status. The forward first joined Simba in 2014 but no sooner had he began his career with the ‘Wekundu wa Msimbazi’ than tragedy struck when he picked up a serious knee injury that saw him undergo surgery in India.He was loaned back to KCB at the start of last season in a bid to get back his match fitness before returning to Simba who still believed in his abilities and saw him as their perfect striker.“AFC Leopards is a big club and I know the demands that come with playing here. We didn’t have such a good start in the second leg but I am certain we will bounce back. At the moment, I am working hard to integrate with the rest of the players and it has been made easy because everyone is welcoming,” the striker noted.“I wouldn’t want to put up specific targets but what I would want to work on is being at my best, scoring and help the team perform well,” he added.Kiongera proved the same during his time at KCB, scoring 11 goals for the Bankers in their relegation season after playing part in 16 matches.However, his return to the Tanzanian capital was not as successful as expected and he ended up being in the periphery of the first team, missing out on accumulating vital playing minutes.He is now ready to burry those woes and focus on getting back to top form that saw him being one of the most dreaded forwards in the Kenyan Premier League.“It has been a difficult time in Tanzania but all that is now in the past. For any player, getting playing time is the most important thing and that is why I decided to come back home and look to play more to get back to the top,” Kiongera stated.The striker made his debut for Ingwe over the weekend in their 1-0 loss to Chemelil Sugar and he believes despite the false start to his life at the club, better things will come his way.Speaking to Capital Sport, head coach Ivan Minnaert is upbeat Kiongera is a positive addition to the team and believes he will give him a lot of options moving forward and will ease the goal scoring burden off Kepha Aswani.“This last match was a bit difficult for him and most of the players because he worked only a few days with us and still the understanding between him and the rest was not as perfect. But he is a good player to the squad and this week we are working on cohesion and we should expect better over the weekend,” Minnaert said.Ingwe who are placed 11th on the Kenyan Premier League standings will face Thika United at the Mumias Sports Complex this weekend and hope to bounce back to winning ways.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Ibrahimovic out for nine months

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic reacts after falling awkwardly during the UEFA Europa League quarter-final second leg football match between against Anderlecht April 20, 2017MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 22 – Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Manchester United career could be over after widespread reports that the striker is facing nine months on the sidelines.Ibrahimovic was taken off in United’s Europa League win over Anderlecht on Thursday, with boss Jose Mourinho admitting he was fearing the worst over the injury. There are a host of reports in the UK that scans have shown Ibrahimovic has suffered ligament damage to his knee, which is expected to keep him out until 2018.United have yet to confirm the reports that the 35-year-old requires surgery and will certainly miss the remainder of this season.But with Ibrahimovic’s contract at Old Trafford expiring this summer, it would raise major question marks over whether he will play for United again.MLS pair LA Galaxy and LAFC have both been interested in taking Ibrahimovic to America, despite Mourinho’s eagerness to keep the Swedish international at the club.Yet such a long lay-off could dramatically alter the complexion of the 17-goal striker’s future.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
