From a design perspective only, the logo is an upgrade over the Atlanta logo. But in reality, the Atlanta logo has too much “brand” tied to it and is therefore a “better” concept overall.

first_imgBy The Nelson Daily SportsA pair of Nelson Selects Rep squads made the short trek across the 49th parallel to compete in the Coeur d’Alene Youth Soccer Tournament this past weekend.The Nelson U14 girl’s and U15 boy’s experienced mixed results at the two-day event.U14 Girl’s DivisionThe Nelson Selects found it very difficult to find goals in Coeur d’Alene, going scoreless in three games.“(Two games) Nelson dominated . . . but could not get the ball into the net,” said a team spokesperson.The Selects opened the tourney with a scoreless tie against Helena Arsenal of Idaho.Game two was against an impressive North Idaho Avalanche squad, consisting mostly of 15-year-old players.Nelson was definitely up against it against the Avs, losing 7-0.In game three, the Nelson defence turned up the tempo but the offence failed to produce once again as the Selects played to a scoreless tie against Sandpoint Strikers.U15 Boy’s DivisionThe Nelson Selects, coached by Scott Lewis, tied two and lost a 1-0 heartbreaker to finish out of the playoffs in the U16 Boy’s Division in Coeur d’Alene.The 1-0 loss came thanks to a controversial call by the referee, awarding the opposition a penalty shot.The week before in Trail, the Selects edged Cranbrook 2-1 to claim the top prize in the Kootenay South Tournament.Dylan Whiffen and Daniel Rodman scored for Nelson.The Selects advanced to the final by stopping host Kootenay South 1-0 and a much-improved Creston team 2-0.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more

first_imgThe upcoming season looks very promising for Nelson Baseball on the eve of completion of upgrades to Queen Elizabeth Park in Fairview.Thanks to the many hours of volunteer work, those upgrades should be completed in the next few weeks.“New irrigation system and natural turf infield replaces the hard clay infield we’ve been playing on for a few decades,” said outgoing Nelson and District Baseball Association President Larry Martel.“The City of Nelson is helping to upgrade the player dugouts, the backstop fencing and trees this year.“The outfield banks were overgrown and full of weeds and thorny scrubs which have been cleaned up and re-seeded.”Martel said had increased by 30 percent in 2014 last season in Nelson and NDBA also saw Okanagan Falls, Salmo and Kaslo join the West Kootenay Little League association for our house league schedule. The registration increase saw NDBA increase to 20 teams playing in the Minors — 9-10 years — and Majors 11-12 years.These divisions play a 12-15 game schedule and attend a couple of tournaments during the 10-week season that runs from April to June.Martel said T-ball 5-6 years — and Rookies —7-8 years — also have seen registrations increasing.“These younger baseball players have very limited travel and play all their games and practices at the new Lions park diamond,” he explained.NDBA baseball registration closes Friday (April 1) so that division managers can evaluate and get teams in coaches in place for the start of the West Kootenay League.Practices usually start soon after April 1 and the first games around the April 15th, weather permitting.“The season runs to the end of the school year then a few of the players continue with summer baseball in the American Legion, Little League provincials or with travel baseball teams that attend tournaments in July in the Okanagan or in Montana, Idaho and Washington state,” Martel said.Anyone interested in umpiring should attend at clinic hosted in Castlegar this year in early April before the first games.David Gray is  the new association president for NDBA.last_img read more

The Super Blues are rejuvenated and one of the leagues form clubs at the moment, while Galway United will boosted by a crucial derby win against Sligo Rovers at Eamonn Deacy Park last week. When the sides met in Galway earlier in the season, United triumphed, winning 3-2 but Friday’s encounter will be another decisive fixture as both clubs bid to avoid the relegation places.TOMMY DUNNE: “WE HAVE TO BUILD SOME MOMENTUM”“The Sligo Rovers win was hugely important, it was timely. I don’t think many people gave us a chance against them. Anybody that watched the game will have noticed the resilience my players displayed. We’re still up for the fight and we will be eager to finish this season as strongly as possible. Some have written us off but we still believe in ourselves, in our abilities, and we’re willing to do the hard-work. We have to continue our form into the Limerick game and we need to build some momentum. Limerick will be another stern test for us. We know that they are the leagues form team along with Dundalk. They will be thinking they can come to Eamonn Deacy Park and turn us over but we have other ideas. We have to improve on our Sligo Rovers performance and continue to be clinical in-front of goal when the chances present themselves again.

first_imgWhenever I visit a city, I always find time to visit a local arboretum, garden, or city park. While many of my friends and colleagues know I’ve worked on software applications and designing websites for years, few know I have a degree in botany and worked as a naturalist for two years. My love of plants and gardens will always be a part of my life.Friends at conferences know to expect me to disappear during lunch breaks or Sunday mornings before sessions to explore plants and trees or go birdwatching in nearby parks and arboretums.Last week was no different when I attended WordCamp US 2015 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and visited Longwood Gardens, about an hour from downtown Philadelphia.Though outside flowers are no longer blooming and trees are bare, Longwood Gardens was ablaze with scarlet red, brilliant yellow, deep blue, bright white, and emerald green holiday lights throughout the outside gardens. One of the most beautiful sights was the beautiful colored fountain show at the Open Air Theater, accompanied by holiday music. I joined dozens of people watching the five-minute light show, ooohing and aahing as the colorful fountains danced to the music. What a treat to visit during an evening when the sky was clear and there was no rain!Here’s another one of my favorite shots of the fountains:Have you visited Longwood Gardens?
