Boyce happy to avoid play-off

first_img Press Association A day after Motherwell and Rangers met in the first leg of the Scottish Premiership play-off final, 24-year-old County forward Boyce was training with his international team-mates ahead of their clash with the 2022 World Cup hosts in Crewe. It seemed unlikely that he would be back on the international scene at the turn of the year when he had struck just three goals for a club that was in danger of dropping out of the Scottish flight. However, the Staggies would go on to win 10 of their final 14 games, losing just twice, as Boyce bagged seven in his final seven games to lead County to safety, an achievement which also paved the way for his international recall to Michael O’Neill’s squad. “Up until a couple of weeks ago our season could have been a week longer,” Boyce noted. “Thankfully, I scored a couple of goals at crucial times to get us out of that situation and it’s given me this opportunity to play international football. “It’s a different type of pressure altogether. Here’s a platform to preform whereas there there are livelihoods at stake at them clubs because people are out of contract and they need to preform with a different pressure on them. “We went on that run of nine games where we won eight and drew one that has sort of pushed us to safety. We just needed to get over the line and thankfully we did that before the last game.” Former Cliftonville striker Boyce’s last cap for his country came in 2011 when he was playing for German side Werder Bremen. He failed to make the grade on the continent but his maturation in a country famed for developing young players, coupled with his stronger, fitter physique, has helped Boyce earn international recognition once more. “The technique I have now has been improved because of that,” he said of his time with Bremen. “I think it’s stood me in good stead now I’m home and realised what full-time football can give you in life. It’s just got me remotivated and thanks to the German technique I can push on from there and use that. “Everyone wants to learn different styles of football, it makes you a better player all round. The Irish League way has probably made me more physically developed because I was playing at a young age. Then I went to Germany and it’s made me better with the ball at my feet. “I’m getting the best of both worlds, really. I would encourage anybody to take the opportunity.” Liam Boyce admits he is particularly happy to be in Northern Ireland’s squad for Sunday’s friendly against Qatar when it looked as if he might be facing a do-or-die play-off with Ross County instead.last_img read more

A closer look at Alpena Public Schools ahead of Tuesday’s bond proposal

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — Michigan primary elections are now less than one week away. That means it’s time to start making some critical decisions before heading out to vote.One of those is the Alpena Public Schools bond proposal. Many of the buildings are old. rundown and are costing the district lots of money to fix. Whether those conditions will soon be improved is in the voters hands. Superintendent of Alpena Public Schools, Dr. John VanWagoner says, tax payers won’t have to worry about another increase on their tax bills.“That 1.8 mils will not raise with this election. If it passes, it will just continue on and you’ll see that same tax bill, it won’t increase. In fact, over time, as we go, it’ll actually decrease.”VanWagoner says the district can’t afford to keep just patching over conditions without fixing them at the root. He says it’s getting expensive, and issues of comfort and security are starting to affect the students.“We’ll actually make sure that we have good solid roofs, boilers, and we’ll also add some very basic security things to ensure somebody can’t just walk through the front door and walk down to a classroom. Really, that theme is keeping our kids safe, keeping our kids warm, and keeping our kids dry,” says VanWagoner.He also walked WBKB personnel through four of nine schools in the district to see first-hand what the students are dealing with. The first two included Ella White Elementary, which was built in 1950, and Alpena High School, which went up in 1967.VanWagoner says, “The boiler at Ella White is in very bad shape. We’re having to flush it out. It’s actually flooding. One of the boilers is out just about every other day.”That’s not to mention asbestos in the ceiling titles and flooring, and leaky roofs that are causing water to drip into student lockers, ruing their belongings. The situation isn’t too much different at the high school, where faulty plumbing, asbestos, and inefficient boiler systems are disrupting the learning process.“We want to make sure that those things that are deteriorating the fastest are the things that are going to get priority to get done first,” VanWagoner explains.These aren’t all of the problems the district is facing, but if you would like more information about what exactly will be fixed if the bond is approved, visit alpenaschools.com, or reach out to the superintendent. He says he’s happy to speak with parents and tax payers about updating the buildings.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena Public School, APS, Bond Proposal, Dr. John VanWagoner, Ella White, High SchoolContinue ReadingPrevious Northern lights will be visible tonight in some areasNext City of Alpena Fire Department warns of charity scamlast_img read more

Genderneutral birth certificates could be issued in Ontario by 2018

first_imgTORONTO – Gender-neutral birth certificates could be issued in Ontario as early as next year, provided the province can work out bureaucratic hurdles involving other governments.Ontario’s minister of government and consumer services said Thursday consultations will be held on the matter this summer and the province is working to ensure a gender-neutral birth certificate would be legally recognized in other jurisdictions.Tracy MacCharles said she’s hopeful Ontario can issue gender-neutral birth certificates by 2018.MacCharles said she’s asked the ministry to reach out to Joshua M. Ferguson — an Ontario-born filmmaker who applied last week to have a change of sex designation on their birth certificate from male to non-binary — a term used to define someone who doesn’t identify with either gender. The minister said she knows the issue is important to the trans and non-binary community.Ferguson, who wants to be referred to by the gender-neutral pronouns “they/them/their,” said they’re pleased to see the government moving forward on the issue.The 34-year-old, who is also a writer and activist, said they have a right to a non-binary birth certificate given Ontario’s laws against discrimination on the basis of gender identity. Ferguson said they’d hoped to receive the new certificate by this summer.“If it doesn’t happen until 2018, this is definitely a problem for me personally, because it would continue to cause me emotional grief over having a birth certificate and all my other forms of legal documentation that are currently discriminating against me, because I’m not a male or a female,” Ferguson said.Currently, Ontario offers gender-neutral options for drivers’ licenses and health cards but not for birth certificates.Ferguson, who lives in Vancouver, has submitted a physician letter along with the application to confirm that the sex on their current birth certificate does not match their gender identity.Last month, activist Gemma Hickey applied for a non-binary birth certificate in Newfoundland and Labrador, but no decision has been announced.last_img read more
