Wenger keeps Suarez hunt ‘amicable’

first_img The Gunners head into this weekend’s Emirates Cup without a marquee summer signing, despite chief executive Ivan Gazidis having talked up the club’s new “financial firepower” at the end of last season. A move for Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid never materialised as the Argentina striker eventually signed for Napoli, whom Arsenal will play on Saturday afternoon, while the Gunners’ pursuit of wantaway striker Suarez looked to have stalled following a second improved bid of £40million plus £1, which had been intended to trigger a clause that would allow them to discuss terms with the Uruguayan. The Gunners boss said: “We have values that we want our players to respect. No matter where they come from, we will be very touchy on that of course. “This club has built a reputation, not only during my period here but over 127 years, and the values that are very important for this club have to be respected by every player, no matter where he comes from. That will be with every potential signing.” Despite reports Wenger had plenty of players on his radar – from Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar to Swansea defender Ashley Williams and Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini, not to mention England frontman Wayne Rooney – so far France under-20 forward Yaya Sanogo is the only confirmed new recruit and that on a free transfer from Auxerre. Wenger, however, insisted that signing could yet prove a shrewd move. “We have signed Sanogo, he has not made the headlines. Why? Because he is not £50m to £100million, but I am quite confident he will make them soon on the pitch, and that for me is the most important,” the Arsenal boss said. “We can still strengthen the squad, there is one month to go. We are at the beginning of August, the transfer window finishes on August 31 (Sept 2). “We are working very hard to strengthen our squad.” Wenger added: “I am confident. You look at many teams around us. Nothing has happened until now. This team with financial potential as well. “At the moment the market hasn’t moved a lot. Apart from Man City, nobody has done anything.” Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has insisted the Anfield club have no intention of selling their key man, who joined up with Brendan Rodgers’ squad on the tour of Australia. Wenger, though, indicated Arsenal remained hopeful of eventually negotiating a deal before the end of the summer transfer window. “I don’t want to speak about Suarez, because that is between Liverpool and Arsenal. We will completely respect what Liverpool wants to do. We want to (sign the player) if it is feasible in an amicable way,” Wenger said. “I am a great believer you have to keep as much confidentiality as possible, which is quite difficult in the modern world. “But we work very hard, not only on the case you name, but on other different cases.” Suarez is currently serving a domestic 10-game ban imposed by the Football Association for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic at the end of last season. The Uruguay international had previously received an eight-match suspension and £40,000 fine from the FA for racially abusing Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra in December 2011. Wenger indicated, should the striker become an Arsenal player, such future behaviour would not be tolerated. Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal are still keen to sign Luis Suarez but insisted negotiations with Liverpool would remain “amicable”. Press Associationlast_img read more

From Wellington to Washington: it was a Crusaders in the Capital kind of weekend

first_imgGroup visiting World War II Memorial. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — It started with a conversation during parent-teacher’s conference. Parent Tracy Goodrum and Wellington High School history instructor Mike Wilmoth was discussing his trips to Washington D.C.Goodrum said she thought it would be cool if a group of high school students could go on a four or five day trip to the national capital as part of a learning experience.And so began one of the biggest adventures ever taken by a Wellington High School student group.Trip Coordinator Mike Wilmoth with student McKenna Oathout.This past weekend, 25 Wellington High School students, four sponsors, and Mr. Wilmoth boarded a plane and flew to Washington D.C. on Saturday morning, before returning on Tuesday afternoon. Those who made the four-day trip included:Students:SENIORSAllison McCueAbby GoodrumMckenna OathoutMadison AdamsJared ShieldsSkylar Struble Remington GilkeyJulian CornejoTatum HaskinsNoelle WrightJaylynn LunaPeyton WithamMorgan LylesDylan JonesKyle NicholsElla Parallon Jake WaltonDietra SoberSara AntoineJUNIORSErin GoodrumBrecken LawrenceJaycee SchettlerKelsie HaydonLucas SoriaLeann NealSPONSORSMike Wilmoth – HS sponsor and organizer of trip.Parent SponsorsTracy Goodrum Nick Struble Jeremy JonesAnd citizen sponsorRoger Stallbaumer.It was cold and snowy, but the Crusaders of the Capital didn’t seem to mind.“It went better than expected,” Wilmoth said. “You never know when dealing with 16 to 18-year-olds and the weather and the usual issues with travel.”The trip had a few alternative storylines. First there was the leaving on Wellington High School Homecoming weekend that required the moving of the trip from Friday afternoon to Saturday morning – no easy task with a group this size.Then there was the weather. Washington D.C. had a cold front go through that included extremely low temperatures on Saturday and a snowstorm on Monday. A tour inside the capital was canceled due to the weather.Still, the group got to see the major attractions of Washington D.C. Arlington Cemetery, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Holocaust Museum, and other adventures.Madi Adams holds the Washington Monument in her hands.Wilmoth said he had been to Washington D.C. more than he can count – maybe in the 20s. He said somebody asked him one time if he was going to give others the experience he had.“I think the neat thing about this trip, is I got to see Washington D.C. through them,” Wilmoth said. “They were seeing things for the first time.”Wilmoth said he has taken tours with a group of history instructors – all cynical about history.“I once told the tour guide thanks after showing these cynical history teachers around and he told me that’s the first time anyone teaching history gave him any thanks,” Wilmoth said. “The kids are a lot more fun to be around.”The fundraising for the trip throughout the school year. The group had a pallet painting sale over the summer, and a Neives, Pizza Hut and Fabiola fundraisers in the fall.Last summer, students painted pallets as a fundraiser for the trip.On the first day of touring, the group walked eight miles, and it was more of the same on Sunday and Monday.“I’m tired,” Wilmoth said over the phone Wednesday. “But I’m ready to do this again.”Wilmoth said he is planning to do this trip every two years now. He opens to do his next trip in 2018 to start the spring break holidays. He would have liked to have the trip this year on spring break but they started planning too late. Many of the churches had already had Spring Break plans.Mike Wilmoth said with 25 students and four sponsors it was a busy four days. The following are more pictures by various people as seen on Facebook.Washington D.C. made people dance.Lincoln overlooks the Crusader group, keeping them in line.And everyone returns home Tuesday safe and sound and sleepy…Follow us on Twitter.

I encourage our Freshman and Sophomore students and parents to truly consider making the trip in 2018. There will be plenty of opportunities to fundraise for your trip. A big THANK YOU to Mike Wilmoth for taking on an adventure of this magnitude; and allowing me to be a part of it. USD353 is fortunate to have him as one of our Educators! Report Reply 0 replies · active 234 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down Small Town Boy · 234 weeks ago A similar-sized group of Wellington 9th-11th graders made a 4-or-5-day trip to Washington D.C. back in the mid-90s. We saw the monuments, memorials, museums, Capital, and even had a representative get us in for a tour of the White House. It was an AMAZING trip, so I’m very glad to see more youth getting to have that experience. Thanks to all who made this possible for the kids and good luck in getting a regular trip scheduled!

A big THANK YOU to Mike Wilmot & all of his adult sponsors for taking time out of their busy schedules to help make this happen. Also thanks to the Wellington community for purchasing the pallets & making donations; also The Wellington School Administrators for their support. This is a great experience for these young Americans!

These poor sheltered students probably have never been outside Kansas. It’s great they get to take this, perhaps, once-in-a-lifetime vacation. What a great experience for these young Americans!

My daughter worked her butt off to pay for this trip! She participated in enough fundraising that she didn’t have to pay anything out of her own pocket, with the exception of food… and that was provided by the TWO jobs outside of school that she works, in addition to being in the running for one of the valedictorians of her class. Please don’t make a presumption about my hardworking daughter or anyone of the other hardworking students that went on this trip! Report Reply Post a new comment Enter text right here!
