At the beginning of the year, Jurgen Klopp was successful with his effort to bring Takumi Minamino to Anfield, which proved to be his only piece of business. However, according to France Football, the Merseyside giants attempted to make another addition to the final third last month. The report claimed that the Premier League giants were willing to part with £30m in order to sign Chukwueze, who has contributed three goals from 22 La Liga appearances this season. Despite his lack of return during the current campaign, Villarreal turned down the bid for a player who is said to have £55 million release clause. The 20-year-old has also received interest from Chelsea and is reported to have a £55 million release clause in his current contract that expires in 2023.Tags: Jurgen KloppLa LigaSamuel ChukwuezeVillareallast_img read more

POGO To Perform For County Commission

first_imgSubmitted by POGOOLYMPIA – Play On Greater Olympia (POGO) will make its debut performance for the Thurston County Commissioners this Tuesday, March 19, 2pm, in building 1, room 280, of the county courthouse. POGO is the first after school, social-transformation-through-music program here in Thurston County. Its students are those who would not otherwise have access to this kind of intensive music instruction.POGO is fashioned after the Venezuelan “el Sistema” model, which has brought music to over 350,000 children and youth in the South American country. Developed by Jose Abreu 37 years ago, el Sistema started with 11 kids in a garage and has blossomed into the country’s leading social change movement for kids.El Sistema-inspired programs have been created in several US and global locations in recent years. Greg Allison, founder and Executive Director of POGO, thought it was time to bring the ground-breaking program to Thurston County’s kids.“Music has been proven to dramatically change the life path of hundreds of thousands of a nation’s youth and transform the community around them. It changes the way they value themselves and others, grows confidence, improves executive brain functions, and gives a sense of belonging to something larger than themselves. All kids deserve a chance to enjoy all that music can bring them,” says Allison.POGO started at Washington Middle School, where Allison has taught band for over 30 years. Currently, 15 students are receiving two hours of musical instruction each day after school. Allison hopes to expand the program to other area schools in the near future.To learn more about POGO, visit www.facebook.com/playongreaterolympia. Facebook3Tweet0Pin0last_img read more
