Dwyer’s shot on goal was saved by the Weston goal-keeper. However, Lucy Dwyer reacted quickly and returned the ball into the circle to Hargroves, who deflected the ball into the back of goal.Throughout the game, there was great defending by all defenders, especially Eimear O’Sullivan and Susan Fingleton, who continuously tackled the Weston attackers as they broke through the mid-field players.In the third quarter, Weston narrowed Portlaoise’s lead by getting a second score on the board but Portlaoise sealed the win with a fourth spectacular goal in the final quarter of the game.Portlaoise defenders and midfield players moved the ball up the field and Kent crossed an airborne ball from the top right-hand corner of the circle into the centre. Hargroves’s stick made contact with the airborne ball and the ball flew past the Weston goal-keeper, giving Hargroves a hat-trick and giving Portlaoise a comfortable win in their third league match.UCD 5 Portlaoise 1The very next day, Portlaoise took on UCD 6th in Kilkenny and unfortunately, with tired legs from the win over Weston on the previous day, UCD proved too strong for Portlaoise.There was great play from many of the Portlaoise players including Liz Poustie in the right back position, Hazel Williams, in her first match for Portlaoise, and Emma Holohan, on the left-hand side of the pitch.Portlaoise managed to get one score on the board courtesy of great work by the forwards and a lovely shot on goal by Kent, which made its way past the UCD goal-keeper.However, UCD managed to score five goals throughout the game and won with a final score of 5-1. Next weekend, Portlaoise will take on Our Lady’s Templeogue in an away league match.Even though the season has started, anyone who is interested in playing hockey is welcome to join training in Fr Breen Park in Abbeyleix on Tuesday nights at 7.30pm.The club can be contacted on Facebook or Instagram with any questions.PORTLAOISE: Linda Monaghan, Jayne Telford, Susan Fingleton, Liz Poustie, Eimear O’Sullivan, Ruth Wilkinson, Marian O’Boyle, April Kent (C), Orla Dwyer, Yvonne Hargroves, Lucy Dwyer, Claire Igoe, Hazel Williams, Emma Holohan, Kellie O’Sullivan.SEE ALSO – Soccer glory for Portlaoise ladies WhatsApp GAA Previous articlePortlaoise ring road opening pushed back again as November 1 now set as completion dateNext articleLaois GAA to decide on Tier 2 proposals for 2020 All Ireland football championship Rory Lawlor Home Sport Other Sport Mixed results on a busy weekend for Portlaoise Hockey SportOther Sport GAA The past weekend proved to be a very busy one for Portlaoise Ladies Hockey Club who played two league matches in the one weekend.The team achieved a great 4-2 win over Weston 2nd in the first match in Kilkenny on Saturday before losing to UCD on Sunday.Portlaoise 4 Weston 2The Weston attackers scored an early goal against Portlaoise.

Food stamps a casualty of President Trump’s proposed budget

Food stamps a casualty of President Trump’s proposed budget

first_img Related BREAKING: @WhiteHouse budget CUTS critical programs that feed hungry kids. This is not right. Lrn more: https://t.co/FDywe0Mgdb #NoKidHungry pic.twitter.com/CJoGRiLUKt— No Kid Hungry (@nokidhungry) May 23, 2017The White House also proposed cuts to the Meals on Wheels program operated through the Department of Health and Human Services in its earlier budget proposal, which led to backlash and a surge in donations to the program.That legislative proposal also proposes that states cover up to 25 percent of the cost of SNAP programs over the next 10 years, which would ultimately cut about $190 million from the program.Acting Deputy Secretary Michael Young said he did not know if USDA had reached out to states for input on whether they could take on more of the cost of providing food stamps.Some states that supported Trump in the election had the highest percentages of their populations receiving SNAP benefits in the 2016 fiscal year, according to data from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, including Louisiana, West Virginia and Mississippi.Of the 26 states, plus Washington, D.C., whose populations receive SNAP benefits at a rate higher than the national average, 18 chose Trump over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.USDA Sec. Sonny Perdue said just last week that he did not think the administration planned any changes to the SNAP program.“As far as I’m concerned we have no proposed changes, you don’t try to fix things that aren’t broken and when the motto is ‘do right and feed everyone,’ I view that as very, very inclusive,” Perdue said in a hearing with the House Agriculture Committee last week.Michael Young said much of the budget was put together before Perdue was confirmed on on April 24.Members of Congress have emphasized that the president’s budget is just a starting off point and rarely passes as is. Melcher said No Kid hungry will be working with members of Congress to restore funding for food stamps.“We plan to work closely with congress to make sure cuts of this level never see the light of day,” she said.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — The budget released by the White House Tuesday contains proposed changes for the program that provides access to food for Americans who otherwise might not be able to afford it.And anti-hunger advocates aren’t pleased. Lucy Melcher, associate director for advocacy with the anti-hunger group No Kid Hungry, argues that the proposed cuts are “devastating” to a program that research shows lifts people out of poverty.The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, more commonly known as food stamps or SNAP, is the “hunger safety net” for Americans in poverty or out of work. Americans who make up to 130 percent of the poverty level, which is a monthly income of $2,600 for a family of four, are eligible for food stamps.More than 44 million Americans participated in the food stamp program in 2016, according to the USDA. The number of people using the program increased during the economic recession and have fluctuated since 2010.The decreased proposal in Trump’s budget is based on their estimate that fewer people will be on food stamps next year, but it also includes reforms that estimate it would reduce funding for SNAP by $190 million over the next ten years.That much bigger cut is proposed under legislation that the administration plans to bring to Congress. The changes would tighten requirements for waivers that allow people who are considered capable of working but can’t find a job to stay on the program.More than 75 percent of households who participate in SNAP have worked a job in the year before or after the receive benefits, according to the USDA. They are limited to three months of benefits unless they get a waiver from the state, such as if they live in an area where there are not enough jobs available. The administration was not clear on how it’s proposal would restrict these waivers but it could mean that people who are capable of working but can’t find a job have a harder time qualifying for benefits.Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney said the cuts were an effort to get more people back to work, saying that people that needed food stamps during the recession are still on the program.“If you’re paying for it isn’t it reasonable for you to at least ask that question aren’t there people on that program who shouldn’t be on there?” Mulvaney asked during a briefing with reporters on Tuesday.But No Kid Hungry’s Melcher said the budget doesn’t invest in programs to help people find work or help people“You are instead pulling the rug out from people and leaving them with no safety net to provide for their most basic needs,” Melcher said.last_img read more
