  • Morrison sets sights on competing on home soil come November

    first_imgWednesday marked a significant step in Denny Morrison’s journey to returning to competitive long track speed skating. Still recovering and rehabbing from various injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in May, Speed Skating Canada named Morrison to their roster of long track speed skaters for the 2015-2016 season.Morrison remains well ahead in his recovery process but despite that he admits he is slightly behind in the personal goals that he has been setting for himself.“I was hoping to be back on the ice full time two weeks ago. Not to say that my recovery is slow, I’m still way ahead of schedule of where people thought I would be but just so much strength was lost in those days and weeks in the hospital and after the crash and the surgery,” he said.- Advertisement -In terms of where he’s at in his recovery, he’s about 90 per cent healed from the accident, however the final 10 per cent he acknowledged is the most difficult part.“It’s still in the grey area. If I progress quickly again I may be able to skate fall World Cups. I don’t want to discount myself from that entirely yet. The fall World Cups include one World Cup in Calgary. It includes a World Cup near by in Salt Lake City. It would be nice to compete at home. Obviously I love competing at home in front of the home crowd and family and friends.”While competing in Calgary appears to be the main goal in the short term, Morrison remains very confident he’ll be able to compete at the next winter Olympics in three years in South Korea.Advertisement “I’ve been motivated by the opportunity to compete at home this November and that’s really helped me push through pain and get myself to the point I’m at today. Regardless of if I’m able to achieve those lofty recovery goals or not, I’m certain I can regain my position on the Canadian team in time for 2018.”As it stands Morrison is pre-qualified for the fall World Cup events based off of his results last season. If he is unable to participate in the fall season, it would force him to re-qualify for the winter portion of the schedule.Morrison will be back in Fort St. John for a visit in early September where he said he hopes to reconnect with local coaches on the ice.last_img read more

JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies have a tall task in front of them as they prepare to begin the second round of the North West Junior Hockey League playoffs.

The team that wins the first game of the series gives themselves a better opportunity to go on and get those four wins.

They’ve got a really good offence. They’re not going to panic; they’re going to come down and make plays. We’ve got to be tighter in our house. We’ve got to compete in front of our net for our goaltender so they’re not getting those easy goals,” Alexander said.The Huskies allowed six goals on four occasions with Fairview through the course of the year.

    first_imgStrabane District Council chairman Thomas Kerrigan and Madge Toye-Temple presenting Geraldine Robinson and Colette Kelly from Sargasso Restaurant with their Bronze award.Sargasso Restaurant in Letterkenny has been awarded one of the first Change a Little Change a Lot Accessibility Awards.Sargasso Restaurant along with Douglas Bridge Cross Community Association Limited in Strabane were presented with a bronze accessibility award, while Healthy Bon Fitness Club in Strabane received a silver accessibility award.Straddling the cross border axis of Donegal and Strabane, the awards honour businesses, community organistions and public sector bodies who make themselves more accessible to people with disabilities. Funding for this project has been provided by the European Union’s INTERREG IVA programme, secured by Co-operation and Working Together’s (CAWT) Community Awareness Programme.Last week’s CSO figures for Co. Donegal show that 14% of the population in the county have a disability while this figure is similar in neighbouring Strabane.“As I know from my own family experience finding accessible social venues locally is very difficult so it was very close to my heart when I opened Sargasso last year to create a fully accessible restaurant to enable full inclusion in the dining experience” says Colette Kelly, owner of Sargasso Restaurant.“When we saw the Change a Little Change a Lot Awards we knew they were right up our street. Social inclusion is a must for the future so I would really encourage businesses to apply for the awards and make whatever changes they need to reach the necessary accessibility standards.” Sharing the same commitment to accessibility and inclusivity, Sargasso staff have undergone Disability Awareness training which has improved confidence in using a range of methods to communicate with people with disabilities and one staff member has sign language skills. The restaurant menu is now available in large print and other alternative formats will be provided on request.“There’s no doubt that being inclusive is simply good business,” says Caroline Robinson, Restaurant Manager. “We really enjoyed going through the process with ADAPT NI whose services were absolutely free as a result of this programme. They guided us and ensured we made changes that would make a difference.”This programme culminates in an overall gala awards ceremony in the Clanree Hotel on 30th May 2013. The results of this awards programme will mean that people with a disability in the Donegal/Strabane area will be able to access their services easier, and according to the organisers will “give participating organisations’ edge in the marketplace and encourage more footfall into their companies.”To apply log onto or email for more details.
