The elbow to Savic broke two teeth: “What is the VAR for?”

first_imgIt is not the first time that Atlético feel mistreated by the work of video arbitration. In February, the rojiblanco team already experienced two situations where it claimed the appearance of the VAR. The first, in the derby against Real Madrid where he considered that Casemiro committed a penalty on Morata and neither the collegiate nor from the VAR room acted to signal it. In the next game Atlético won Granada 1-0, but no one was happy with the Soto Grado arbitration. The play that irritated the rojblancos most came with a soldier elbow in the face of Correa in the area of ​​Granada. A play that would have been a penalty and the second yellow card for the striker of the Andalusian team. Medié Jiménez did not notify the Voto to Soto Grado for review. Atletico ended again an annoying match for the use of the VAR. From the rojiblanco set they do not understand why video arbitration did not come to value Embarba’s elbow to Savic in minute 37, action that Alberola Rojas grounded with a yellow card. The central Montenegrin rose from the ground bleeding and very upset with the action of the Espanyol player, who recriminated the blow. After Savic himself confirmed that the elbow split two teeth. The defender was in charge of denouncing the discomfort of the rojiblanco team when certain actions are reviewed. “It’s a red manual. The player jumps, does not look at the ball and elbows me in the mouth. I don’t understand what the VAR is for if these plays are not reviewed, it is a red example “he declared at the end of the duel. A review room where he was Sánchez Martínez.last_img read more

Capital bill aids building projects

first_imgMoney to rebuild Vancouver’s Crestline Elementary School, to build an airplane hangar and a cosmetology building at the Clark County Skills Center, and to start a community garden in West Vancouver are just some local projects in the state’s new two-year, $3.6 billion capital budget.The bill passed the Legislature over the weekend and was signed Monday by Gov. Jay Inslee.It directs the state’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction to fast-track any eligible money from its construction assistance program to rebuild Crestline. The school burned down in February, after the deadline to request state assistance. Evergreen Public Schools would have had to wait an extra year to get state money if the provision to expedite funds didn’t pass.Now, “we don’t have to try to find some sort of loan to carry us through,” Evergreen’s chief operating manager, Mike Merlino, said Monday, calling the budget “good news” for Crestline. “The belief is, we will have enough to rebuild the school as we intend to rebuild it.”The exact amount that Crestline will receive was not specified in the budget, and school officials are still determining how much the new school will cost. Merlino estimated the district will need at least $5 million in state assistance. The rest of the rebuilding costs are covered by insurance.Until the school opens in 2014, Crestline students will meet in rented space at the old Hewlett-Packard campus on Southeast 34th Street.Other education projectsThe budget provides the Clark County Skills Center with $1.7 million to construct two new buildings on its campus. One would serve as a cosmetology school, as well as providing larger classrooms to accommodate the school’s growth. The other will be an airplane hangar to serve the school’s new aviation program.last_img read more
