I’m grateful these critical resources for Central Coast water projects passed with an overwhelming bipartisan majority,” said Carbajal.Morro Bay HarborH.R. 5895 includes $2.4 million in funding for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to dredge the Morro Bay Harbor entrance next year.“The City of Morro Bay is grateful to receive $2.4 million in Federal funding from the passage of an appropriations bill supported by Congressman Salud Carbajal that will be used for critically important harbor entrance dredging next year,” said Morro Bay Mayor, Jamie L. Irons.“This dredging will help ensure a safe harbor entrance for our recreational boaters and commercial fisher men and women, and allows Morro Bay to be a safe refuge during storms.

Mata moves closer to United switch

Mata moves closer to United switch

first_img “I can understand completely what Chelsea are doing. They could have sold him last week. “They do not make the rules, but maybe the rules should be adapted a bit more for more fairness.” None of this will concern United, who have endured such a poor campaign. Arguably their latest setback was the lowest point of all, given they found themselves outplayed at home by the team currently 19th in the Premier League, gifted Sunderland a last-minute goal that deprived them of a place in the final and then, after salvaging the situation through Javier Hernandez deep in stoppage time, conspired to convert just one of five kicks in what must go down as one of the worst penalty shoot-outs of all time. It has led to Moyes being savaged by some fans, who bombarded radio phone-ins to express their concerns. Others have been more measured in their assessment, acknowledging the squad left by Sir Alex Ferguson was flattered in the extreme by a 20th championship, achieved by a massive 11 points. It has created a situation where everyone, inside Old Trafford and out, accepts requires a major injection of morale, which former defender Gary Pallister insists Mata will provide. “He is a fantastic signing,” said Pallister, who was speaking at the National Football Museum, where he helped launch an exhibition dedicated to the 125th anniversary of the Northern League. “He has great skill, great imagination, flair and goalscoring ability. “A lot of people can’t quite understand why he has not been in Jose Mourinho’s team after being player of the year for the last two seasons. “He is the kind of player Manchester United fans want to see. He has great imagination and can get people off their seats in anticipation of the things he can do with a football. “We are delighted to get hold of him. Hopefully he can help lift Manchester United out of the spell they are going through.” As a teenager, Pallister spent 18 months in the Northern League with Billingham Town before moving on to Middlesbrough, where he caught the eye of Ferguson. He was part of the side that flirted with relegation in 1990 before eventually pulling clear of trouble and then winning the FA Cup, the start of almost a quarter of a century of unprecedented success with United. “That side was close to getting into a relegation scrap,” said Pallister, who won four Premier League titles and three FA Cups during his nine-year stint at Old Trafford. “We very nearly went into the relegation zone. “People have to remember it is very difficult to join a club the size of Manchester United. Even walking into the stadium as a supporter for the first time takes your breath away. “This is a work in progress – and everybody has to get behind the manager and staff.” Although it was widely assumed the Chelsea midfielder would head north for a medical on Thursday, Mata was forced to wait for the final details to be thrashed out between the clubs. United officials remained relaxed about the situation, giving no indication there had been any last-minute hitch that could delay the move. And, although some Manchester City fans have suggested Mata aborted his journey in the wake of United’s shattering Capital One Cup semi-final exit to Sunderland, it is widely assumed the formalities will be concluded within the next 24 hours. That would allow the 25-year-old to train with his new team-mates over the weekend, before being presented to the media next week, possibly ahead of what seems certain to be his debut against Cardiff at Old Trafford on January 28. Ineligible for the remainder of United’s Champions League campaign, Mata is tasked with trying to help his new club secure a top-four spot, having dropped six points adrift of Liverpool. Yet, whilst hopes of retaining their Premier League title have all but disappeared, United could have a significant say in who does win it. And it has not escaped Arsene Wenger’s attention that Mata will strengthen a United side that may have already faced Chelsea twice, but still have matches against Arsenal and Manchester City to play. “It opens up again questions about the dates of this transfer window,” said Wenger. “Some teams have already played twice against one opponent and some others not. “If you want to respect the fairness for everybody that should not happen. Juan Mata is expected to complete his club-record move to Manchester United on Friday. Press Associationlast_img read more

Honours even after England fightback

Honours even after England fightback

first_img12 Jul 2013 Honours even after England fightback England’s Georgia Hall and Hayley Davis pulled off a great comeback this morning to keep the honours even after the semi-final foursomes against Spain at the European ladies’ team championship at Fulford, York. They battled back from three down to win two up and keep the lunchtime score at one-all after Bronte Law and Meghan MacLaren lost on the last. The Spanish pair charged into the lead against Hayley and Georgia, holing their second shot for an eagle two on the second and quickly getting to three up. But the England pair had all the answers with three birdies in six holes – the 7th, 9th and 12th – to get back to all square. They got ahead with a par on the 13th and held on tight to their advantage. If they strayed off the fairway, as they did on the 15th, they made up for it with immaculate short game play – in this case it was Hayley (image © Leaderboard Photography) who fired straight at the pin, finishing so close that the putt was conceded. On the last it was Georgia’s turn to play the most delicate pitch to the pin which was conceded after the Spanish pair missed their birdie putt. In the match behind, Bronte and Meghan battled hard, but they were one down playing the 18th and their hopes of squaring the match ended when the Spanish pair eagled the hole to win two up.last_img read more
