Powered by Firework The 2019/20 Ligue 1 season has been officially called off after the French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe asked the country’s National Assembly to stop all sporting activity until September, this afternoon. According to multiple reports, the league’s governing body, the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP), will decide the fate of the rest of the season next month and resolve issues such as Champions League qualification, promotion and relegation.Advertisement “The big sporting affairs cannot occur before September. The 2019-20 football season cannot return.” PM Phillippe declared.Advertisement The 2019/20 Ligue 1 season was suspended earlier in March due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with several players agreeing to donate 50% of their salaries to help their clubs during this crisis. And the Prime Minister’s speech on Tuesday confirmed that the French government was unwilling to risk a further outbreak by allowing the return of the game anytime soon.However, the main concerns right now are whether reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain, (who are 12 points clear at the top of the league table) will retain their crown or not, along with the issues of Champions League, Europa League qualification, promotion and relegations also on the agenda.Elsewhere, the German government looks poised to resume Bundesliga next month behind closed doors, while the Italian football federation (FIGC) is expected to hold a meeting of its executive council on the first week of May to present its plans to a government scientific committee.The Premier League clubs, on the other hand, have resumed training with discussions over a restart date is being discussed.Meanwhile, UEFA have released £203million to the various national associations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and confirmed that the amount is a part of their HatTrick funding programme, as each association will receive up to £3.75m, shortly.In a press release, the association said that the money is being released in order to develop specific and targeted areas affected by the crisis, and because of the unexpected financial impact due to the outbreak, UEFA will leave the matter up to its 55 member countries on how and where to use the sum.

SHREWSBURY – Members of the Two River Council of Mayors continue to hope to sway the county’s seemingly tepid position on establishing designated bike lanes in the Two River area.The mayors who have reiterated their support for the proposal to have bike lanes on county roads, decided to extend an invitation for their planned July 16 meeting to Freeholder Thomas A. Arnone and other members of the county Board of Chosen Freeholders, hoping to elicit some more support from the board. County officials have expressed reservations for the county’s participation in establishing formal lanes in the area.The mayors’ group plans to also invite state Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon (R-13) to the July meeting, hoping he may be able to facilitate a meeting of the minds between local and county government, it was decided at the June 11 meeting. O’Scanlon and state Senator Joseph Kyrillos (also R-13) “both have been a huge help,” and have supported in theory the proposal, said Fair Haven Mayor Benjamin Lucarelli, who has been spearheading this initiative for approximately the last year.Several calls to Freeholder Arnone were not returned. Laura Kirkpatrick, Monmouth County spokeswoman, declined to respond given she has not yet heard directly from the mayors and did not attend the meeting.As an olive branch offering, Lucarelli also suggested each town consider paying a portion of the project, offsetting what would be the county’s cost if the project moves forward.The mayors who have reiterated their support for the proposal to have bike lanes on county roads, decided to extend an invitation for their planned July 16 meeting to Freeholder Thomas A.

Laura Kirkpatrick, Monmouth County spokeswoman, declined to respond given she has not yet heard directly from the mayors and did not attend the meeting.As an olive branch offering, Lucarelli also suggested each town consider paying a portion of the project, offsetting what would be the county’s cost if the project moves forward.A number of the mayors expressed criticism of the freeholders’ April decision to place the heavy lifting and responsibility on local government to establish these routes, alleging it was an attempt on county government to kill off the proposal.“That’s what they’re hoping,” said West Long Branch Mayor Janet Tucci.“It’s just an outrage, it really is,” added Monmouth Beach Mayor Susan Howard.The freeholders, after a review by county engineer Joseph Ettore, voted in April to establish guidelines for such interconnecting bike lanes on county roads. If municipalities want to do it, each town would have to have its own engineer conduct the study, and pay for that, and the towns would have to be willing to pay for the striping and stenciling the roadways and putting up necessary signs. The towns’ plans would have to be submitted to the county for its approval, first, to ensure it meets state transportation requirements, along with other criteria.County officials have said, while it maybe a worthwhile project, they simply can’t afford to do it and there are issues of liability that have to be addressed.Ettore had told county officials it would cost approximately $15,000 per mile to under take the project. Lucarelli and Rumson Mayor John Ekdahl have disputed that price tag.Having each town responsible could jeopardize the continuity of the project, if all towns fail to participate, and would greatly increase the cost of the project, Lucarelli said, stressing this should be a county project.“The county really has to drive the bus,” on this, he said to the mayors.Ekdahl estimated it would cost about $25,000 per town to undertake the engineering study.If the county the project and “if you do it right, it’ll be a nominal cost,” Lucarelli said.Lucarelli’s plan is to have designated bike lanes – about four-foot wide – along county roadways from Red Bank, east through the Fair Haven-Rumson peninsula. The lanes would continue through Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach, to Oceanport and loop back toward Red Bank. Lucarelli said this would create a safer and more welcoming environment for those who already cycle on the roadways for recreation and transportation encourage others to do it.His idea would be to stripe the roadways when the county undertakes repaving projects.This is the new paradigm across the U.S. and elsewhere in the world, working to get people out of their cars and on bikes or walking for health and environmental reasons, in the past said Lucarelli, who is a cycling enthusiast.The state Department of Transportation (DOT) has plans to repave state Highway 35 from Asbury Avenue, Ocean Township, to the Middletown border at the Coopers Bridge, with state transportation officials considering adding bike lanes, according to Lucarelli.Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long told the mayors’ group the DOT plans on adding bike lanes in Sea Bright along Ocean Avenue/Highway 36, from Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook to the Monmouth Beach border, when the road is repaved, following water main replacement work in the fall.According to the DOT, as part of a Route 36 resurfacing project, bike lanes will be installed in the Sea Bright area. The project is expected to begin next spring. It was originally planned for a spring 2015 start but a water main project in the area required NJDOT to wait until the ground settles.Lucarelli remains confident an accommodation can be reached between county and local officials.“We’ll work it out,” he said. He also encouraged the mayors to contact freeholders to voice support for the bike routes.The Two River Council of Mayors, an informal group of 13 area communities, has unanimously endorsed the bike lanes plan, said Shrewsbury Mayor Donald Burden, the current council chairman.John Burton can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By Jay Cook |RED BANK – While a trio of National Football League games are set for Thanksgiving Day, a more personal and charitable game on Black Friday will be the dinner table conversation in some peninsula towns this holidayAlthough Thanksgiving and football have a clear connection, it’s not what one annual flag football tournament is all about. The focus is on giving back to the less fortunate and supporting Lunch Break, a nonprofit social service center on Red Bank’s West Side.Known for 15 years around the Two River area as the White Road Cup, the Black Friday flag football tournament now called The Rivalry Series will pit Rumson, Fair Haven, Little Silver and Shrewsbury against one another for the first time in an all-ages day of competition.“It’s more than just a football game, it’s more than just a fundraiser,” said Rick Brandt, a life-long Little Silver resident who helped found the game. “It’s really rolling up your sleeves and becoming a part of your community to help those in need around the holidays.”For almost two decades, the White Road Cup was played between Little Silver and Shrewsbury residents, initially high school and college kids home for Thanksgiving break, Brandt said. As young adults, he said he and his friends decided to start collecting small entry fees and turning those proceeds over to Lunch Break.Fast forward to 2017. Brandt is now on Lunch Break’s Board of Trustees, and doing his part to grow the tournament. After changing locations from White Road Field to Count Basie Field last year to allow for more players, Brandt said the goal this year was to expand the game across the peninsula to include the Rumson and Fair Haven communities, both of which he said are known for their passion for football.And for the first time, the 11-on-11 tournament which evolved into The Rivalry Series will feature the four towns competing in the Peninsula Playoff Championship. Age brackets for fifth and sixth grades, seventh and eighth grades, men’s 18 to 35, ladies 18 and older, and men’s 35 and older will take over Red Bank Catholic’s home turf Friday.The tournament will pit the Little Silver Warriors against the Shrewsbury Tigers on one side of the bracket. On the opposite will be the Rumson Bulldogs versus the Fair Haven Knights. Each game will be timed to a 30-minute running clock and whoever has the most points at the end moves to the next round. Games are played almost immediately one after another.But what makes this tournament different than others, Brandt said, is the impact it has on local charities. To raise awareness about the game, The Rivalry Series trophy made stops at some of the staple businesses in the area: BagelMasters and Shrewsbury Car Wash in Shrewsbury, Booskerdoo Coffee and Lupo Pizzeria in Fair Haven, and Brennan’s Delicatessen in Rumson were just a few of the places the trophy visited.Along with a suggested registration donation amount of $100 for adults, $75 for 18- to 34-year-olds and $50 for kids, each participant is encouraged to bring nonperishable goods and even clothing to donate to Lunch Break.Brandt said in the five to six years the tournament has been officially fundraising, it’s raised about $40,000 to $50,000, a level he never thought it could reach.“The peninsula is just one big family, and we’re all in it together,” Brandt said. “We’re out here to help and that’s what we do.”Although the football tournament is the biggest draw, about a hundred participants flocked to Lunch Break’s Red Bank headquarters on Nov. 18 to participate in a hot food line, preparing meals for hungry families.For the past few years, Little Silver resident Jennifer Borenius and her four sons have volunteered at the food line the week before the game. She said it goes a long way in teaching her children how to support their own community.Giving back is “the most critical piece in my view,” she said. “It’s fun to get out there and play a great game but at the end of the day you recognize there are bigger issues and things more important.”Borenius has also been instrumental in filling out the ladies’ rosters. She’s recruited about 50 women from Little Silver and Shrewsbury to participate in the game. Consisting mainly of mothers, contingent has been practicing every Saturday morning from 7 to 9 a.m. at Sickles Park to prepare.She likened the team practices and game atmosphere to how the Two River area supports its local charities.“In order to progress the ball – move forward in life – you need to have the support of your team, your community,” she said. “That to me exemplifies exactly what Lunch Break is trying to do.”For more information about scheduling and registration for The Rivalry Series tournament, visit TheRivalrySeries.com.This article was first published in the Nov. 23-30, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.
Following a single-game weekend, the Nelson Leafs return to the fold with a pair of key Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Murdoch Division games.Nelson, locked in a three-way tie for second spot in the division with Beaver Valley and surprising Grand Forks, travel south of the 49th parallel to face the Braves.The Leafs, undefeated in September with five exhibition and three regular season wins, know all too well how difficult it is to win in the Lilac City as the Braves always put up a challenge regardless of the team’s success.Saturday, the Leafs return to the NDCC Arena to host the new-and-improved Grand Forks Border Bruins at 7 p.m.After opening the season with three consecutive wins the Bruins have cooled off after dropping a pair of games to defending KIJHL champ Castlegar and Beaver Valley. The Bruins enter the weekend sporting two of the top three scoring leaders in the KIJHL.Jackson Purvis leads the league with 13 points in five games.Former Leaf Connor Gross is tied for second with three players with 11 points.Purvis and Gross combined have almost half of the Bruins offensive points.Nelson counters with the Jamie Vlanich-Travis Wellman connection.The two snipers have 14 of Nelson’s 44 points.LEAF NOTES: The players have been busy off the ice of late. Three days this week some of the players helped out in the soup kitchen while others were challenged go a floor hockey game at Trafalgar.
Tight lines………………..Kerry Reed Reel Adventures 250-505-4963www.reeladventuresfishing.com Everything seems perfect for fall/winter fishing now. Our water temperatures are just right. Our weather has been good. And our fish are starting to cooperate. We have had a lot of days with 10 – 15 fish coming to the boat. Lots of action for our groups. Still a lot of smaller fish, but the odd big one gets hooked each day to help keep the excitement up. Rainbows up to 19 pounds and Dollies up to 12 pounds have been caught lately. One of my funnest days in the past couple weeks saw us hook into 17 fish up to 16 pounds. That was a busy day. Hope to see more of that action as the season progresses. My favorite time of year now. As it should make for some exciting surface action. Looking forward to some high flying, line screaming, Rainbow trout action for the next couple months….What are they biting on??? Most of our Rainbows are being caught on the surface now. Although we have been catching a few on the downriggers still also. And the dollies have been mostly on the deep lines, but starting to get the odd one on the surface. So, it’s been best to cover both angles. Our bucktail flies have been working well lately. My best colors have been: Black/white, grey/white, purple/white, and some brown/orange. Or lucky numbers: 203, 210, 213, 214, 215, and 224. Lyman plugs have been catching their share of the action also. Favorite numbers have been #14, 16, 55, 69, and 100. Try trolling these on the surface or down to about 100 ft is working as well. And the good old flasher/hoochie combo has been picking up it’s fair share of Dollies. Green seems to be the hot color. Fishing anywhere from 50 – 120ft. Definitely my favorite time of year.So, let’s get out there. …….. Fishing Derby With the first two fall fishing derbies down, there is still one remaining before the new year.
