Two Wines from Westport Winery Selected for US Capitol Christmas Tree…

first_imgSubmitted by Westport WineryWestport Winery is pleased to announce that two of its wines will be featured at the US Capitol Christmas Tree Lighting celebration in Washington, DC in December.According to winey co-owner Kim Roberts, “We were contacted through the Washington State Wine Commission about this opportunity. As one of our state’s thirteen commissioners I was incredibly honored to submit our wines for selection through an agency in Sonoma.”Blain Roberts said, “Since the Capitol tree is coming from Washington State they felt it would be most appropriate to serve Washington wine. It was tough for us to choose from among our 33 wines but because of the celebratory nature of this event we chose two of our sparkling wines.”Rapture of the Deep, a sparkling cranberry, and Going Coastal, a sparkling Gewurztraminer, were chosen for pouring at the ceremony. “These are our most decorated wines, each having earned numerous double gold medals and a platinum medal,” according to Dana Roberts, the Director of Winemaking.The Roberts family was invited to join the festivities in Washington, DC, on November 25, but due to winemaking and event commitments at their farm, Vineyards By-the-Sea, located outside of Aberdeen, Washington, they are unsure if they will attend the event. This is the westernmost vineyard in Washington State and located in a region of the state known as the Cranberry Coast.Westport Winery, the 2013 Best in the Northwest Destination Winery, is located on the corner of Highway 105 and South Arbor Road halfway between Westport and Aberdeen.

After much flip-flopping, Udayanraje Bhosale announces BJP entry

first_imgEnding days of speculation, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP from Satara, Udayanraje Bhosale, finally announced his entry into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the Assembly polls.Mr. Bhosale, a direct descendant of the Maratha warrior king Shivaji, is expected to submit his resignation to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and formally join the BJP in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP working president J.P. Nadda and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, among others in New Delhi on Saturday. While refraining from speaking to the media over his BJP entry for the past few days, Mr. Bhosale ended the suspense on Friday by tweeting a poster announcing the decision.It is a homecoming of sorts for the hell-raising royal, who had served as the State Revenue Minister in the BJP-Shiv Sena government between 1995 and 1999.On Thursday, Mr. Bhosale met NCP chief Sharad Pawar at the latter’s Pune residence in the presence of party leaders Dhananjay Munde and Shashikant Shinde. This led to fresh speculation that Mr. Pawar may, after all, have been successful in dissuading the MP from exiting a party already faced by several desertions.However, Mr. Bhosale — one of only four elected NCP MPs in Maharashtra in the recently concluded general election — apparently remained firm on his decision to leave the party. He is expected to take part in the BJP’s Mahajanadesh Yatra when the outreach tour reaches Satara on September 15.There had been much flip-flopping on part of Mr. Bhosale on his decision to join the BJP. Earlier this week, a private meeting of the MP and his supporters in Pune, where he was supposed to announce his decision, was allegedly scrapped.One reason for the MP’s hesitation in quitting the NCP was that the BJP had apparently set conditions on his entry, demanding that he resign from his parliamentary post.The MP, often a vocal critic of his own party, is apparently disgruntled with the factionalism within the NCP. Last week, in a last-ditch bid, the NCP had sent actor-turned-MP from Shirur, Dr. Amol Kolhe, to persuade him to change his mind. However, the meeting came a cropper.Swabhimani Paksha chief and NCP ally Raju Shetti, too, had called on Mr. Bhosale, remarking that leaders like the MP were required for keeping a strong opposition alive in the State.Mr. Bhosale is a tall figure in Satara district, and his defection is expected to bolster the BJP while improving its standing with the Maratha community.No stranger to brushes with the law, Mr. Bhosale was arrested in a murder case in 1999, but was later acquitted.Besides being with the BJP, he was also part of the Congress before allying himself with the NCP in 2009. when he was first elected to the Lok Sabha with a massive margin. He repeated this feat in 2014 and 2019.Last month, Mr. Fadnavis, during the course of the Mahajanadesh Yatra, had said the BJP would be happy if Mr. Bhosale joined the ruling party.last_img read more

10 months agoChelsea have not signed Pulisic as Hazard replacement – Honigstein

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Chelsea have not signed Pulisic as Hazard replacement – Honigsteinby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea signing Christian Pulisic is not a direct replacement for Eden Hazard, according to German football expert Ralph Honigstein.The American completed a move to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday and has been immediately loaned back to Borussia Dortmund for the rest of the 2018-19 season.Many Chelsea fans have feared Pulisic’s signing means Hazard will leave the club this summer. But Honigstein doesn’t think that is the case.”I’m not sure what this means for Hazard but he is not, at least not in my mind, a direct replacement,” he said.”He can play in the same positions of course but he is not going to add those goals necessarily.”He will provide plenty of assists and keep the ball, but I don’t see him filling the role that Hazard has – basically becoming both Chelsea’s playmaker and major goalscorer in the absence of a more prolific centre forward. I think we have to look at this move in isolation.” last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Fernandinho: Ederson superb for Man City winby Paul Vegas5 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFernandinho was happy with Manchester City’s 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.Fernandinho again filled in at centre-half on the day.He said: “We just tried to play our style of football and our philosophy. In the first half we scored two goals and controlled the game but at the end of the game they brought on Benteke and he caused some problems for us but Ederson was superb to make the saves.”They started to play long balls and high balls for their tall players. But if we scored the goals from the chances we created it would have been a different game.”On playing at centre-back, he added: “It was fine. In the first half we controlled out actions and didn’t concede any chances. But in the second half we dropped our concentration but overall we were better and deserved the win.”The Premier League is so tough, so hard, so we just try to win our games and do our job. We focus on winning every game. That is all we can do.” last_img read more
