Brad Smith was then sent off for Liverpool, whose hopes of Champions League qualification now rest on winning the Europa League. SUNDAY, MAY 1 ARSENAL 1 NORWICH CITY 0 GOAL:-ARSENAL: WELBECK 59. Norwich moved closer to relegation on an afternoon that saw Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger subjected to calls for his sacking. Gunners fans protested inside and out of the Emirates, though they secured a valuable win with a Danny Welbeck half-volley. The result leaves Norwich in 19th place, two points from safety with three games remaining. EVERTON 2 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 1 GOALS:-EVERTON: CLEVERLEY 7; BAINES 64. BOURNEMOUTH: PUGH 9. Everton manager Roberto Martinez was another to face calls for his head despite seeing his side beat Bournemouth.

Leighton Baines claimed the winner for Everton, but fans stayed behind to protest against Martinez. NEWCASTLE UNITED 1 CRYSTAL PALACE 0 GOAL:-NEWCASTLE: TOWNSEND 58. Newcastle moved out of the relegation zone, thanks to Andros Townsend’s magnificent free kick and keeper Karl Darlow’s penalty save. Townsend gave Newcastle the lead after half-time, but Yohan Cabaye, once of Newcastle, saw his late penalty saved by third-choice Darlow. The win sees Newcastle a point above Sunderland and two clear of Norwich. STOKE CITY 1 SUNDERLAND 1 GOALS:-STOKE: ARNAUTOVIC 50. SUNDERLAND: DEFOE PEN 90. Jermaine Defoe’s added-time penalty helped Newcastle rescue a point but dropped into the relegation zone after rivals Newcastle beat Palace. Marko Arnautovic gave Stoke the lead and Sunderland struggled to create chances in response, until Geoff Cameron tangled with Defoe in the 93rd minute and the former England striker made no mistake from the spot. WATFORD 3 ASTON VILLA 2 GOALS:-ABDI; DEENEY 90, 90. VILLA: CLARK 28; AYEW 48. Troy Deeney’s two late goals denied Aston Villa what would have been only their fourth league win of the season. Ciaran Clark headed Villa’s opener, but Almen Abdi equalised for Watford. Jordan Ayew’s low drive restored Villa’s lead, but Aly Cissokho was sent off with 17 minutes to play. Deeney levelled in added time and within seconds slotted home the winner. WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0 WEST HAM UNITED 3 GOALS:-WEST HAM: KOUYATE 34; NOBLE 45, 79. Mark Noble scored twice to extended West Ham’s unbeaten run in the Barclays Premier League to 10 games. Cheikhou Kouyate headed the Hammers ahead before Noble scuffed a shot prior to the break to extend the visitors’ advantage. Noble added his second and West Ham’s third when he volleyed home from Andy Carroll’s cross. SATURDAY, APRIL 30 Barclays Premier League reviewlast_img read more

Rep Wozniak Stronger water and road infrastructure car insurance reform needed for

first_img13Feb Rep. Wozniak: Stronger water and road infrastructure, car insurance reform needed for Michigan Categories: Wozniak News State Rep. Doug Wozniak, of Shelby Township, today underscored issues he continues to fight for in the Michigan House of Representatives after attending Tuesday night’s State of the State address.Wozniak, who serves on the House Health Policy and Families, Children and Seniors committees, has been a strong advocate of ensuring Macomb County residents have access to safe and clean drinking water through durable delivery systems. The Michigan Legislature – in the past 13 months – has already secured $125 million to help families affected by PFAS contamination, allowing the state to respond quickly and effectively to contamination reports. Since taking office in January 2019, Wozniak said he looks to build on the progress already made, and continue his unwavering commitment to protect families from harmful contaminants, while protecting the pocketbooks of hard-working taxpayers.“Making important investments in our water infrastructure to ensure families have safe, clean drinking water is an area where the governor and the Legislature can work together,” Wozniak said. “We must explore all options to protect our environment and preserve clean water without burdening Michigan taxpayers.”To set Michigan above other states, Wozniak has stressed the importance of properly funding the state’s roadways. During her address, the governor reaffirmed her promise to “fix the damn roads,” yet Wozniak said she fell short of talking about a specific plan.“Fixing our state’s roadways is something all drivers can agree on as being mandatory,” Wozniak said. “While I welcome Gov. Whitmer’s focus on fixing the damn roads, I was surprised she didn’t have any plan on how to fix them or where she will find the money to fix them. Macomb allocates more money to roads than it receives from the state budget. We cannot continue just throwing money at the problem, and putting the burden on Macomb County taxpayers without a specific plan. Until the governor lays out a detailed plan, there’s not much progress we can make.”Wozniak, a first-term lawmaker, has clearly stated the need for reforming the state’s car insurance system responsible for Michigan drivers paying the highest premiums in the nation. Wozniak said he is working with House colleagues to craft a meaningful solution, adding he is concerned the governor failed to provide a detailed plan for car insurance reform in her address.“I was disappointed the governor did not give car insurance reform the attention it needed, and I’m sure Macomb County drivers share the same feeling,” Wozniak said. “Car insurance reform is one of the top priorities of residents back home, and it’s a large enough pocketbook issue that Gov. Whitmer could’ve at least laid out a detailed plan on how she is committed to working with the Legislature in providing a meaningful solution for all motorists across the state.  The state House has created a special committee to deal with this issue.“I would like to hear more from the governor on her ideas to address the cost of car insurance and I hope her plans regarding strengthening our water infrastructure and fixing our roads come to light when she presents her budget in the near future.”last_img read more
