Clattenburg back at Stamford Bridge

first_img The matter arose from the Blues’ fiery clash with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on October 28 with Chelsea making a complaint based on reports from their players. Clattenburg did not referee for four weeks while the FA investigated but the governing body determined the official had no case to answer. Police also dropped their separate inquiry and Chelsea later issued a statement expressing regret at the way it was handled. Since resuming duties Clattenburg has been eligible to referee Chelsea but five months have passed before being appointed to another fixture involving the London club by the Professional Game Match Officials Limited. Chelsea have no issue with the appointment and are ready to welcome Clattenburg back to Stamford Bridge. In a joint statement issued with the Premier League and PGMOL last November, the club said: “Chelsea FC made it clear they would welcome Mark Clattenburg back to Stamford Bridge in the future and PGMOL would have no issue in appointing him to a Chelsea FC match going forward.” Mark Clattenburg is to referee this Sunday’s clash between Chelsea and Swansea, the Premier League has confirmed. It will be the official’s first match involving Chelsea since last autumn’s racism row involving John Obi Mikel. Clattenburg was accused of using “inappropriate language” towards Mikel but was cleared by the Football Association. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Washington Center to Receive $10,000 Grant from the National Endowment…

first_imgFacebook66Tweet0Pin1Submitted by The Washington Center for the Performing ArtsNational Endowment for the Arts Acting Chairman Mary Anne Carter has approved more than $27 million in grants as part of the Arts Endowment’s first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2019.  Included in this announcement is a Challenge America grant of $10,000 to the Washington Center for the Performing Arts. Challenge America grants support projects that extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations—those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability.“The arts enhance our communities and our lives, and we look forward to seeing these projects take place throughout the country, giving Americans opportunities to learn, to create, to heal, and to celebrate,” said Mary Anne Carter, acting chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.Jill Barnes, Executive Director of the Washington Center, says, “The importance of the NEA cannot be understated. Artists and arts organizations rely on a diverse stream of funding. This grant will expose students and youth to different cultures and explore new types of artistic expression. This is how students learn and grow, and enhances their education.”The Washington Center will use NEA funding to support their Creative Connections program, which links underserved Thurston-County students with professional touring artists. Upcoming performances with educational student programs include a private classroom Q & A with Ira Glass, and virtuoso ukulele performer Taimane on May 16. Taimane has the ability to morph genres – from classical to rock to flamenco – and stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawaii, where she grew up. Gardner’s musical experience will convey to students that one can transcend expectations of what anyone, or any instrument, can and should do.The Washington Center partners with local school districts to engage Title 1 schools and K-12 students in the Olympia area as well as local institutions of higher learning. Free tickets to economically disadvantaged families will be available for the associated public performances through area service organizations.For more information on this National Endowment for the Arts grant announcement, visit arts.gov/news.last_img read more
