Girona trusts Montilivi its jump to Primera

first_imgClassification. Girona chains five consecutive days in playoff positions, but it is bumping into a wall. And this is fifth place Improving this position as far as the course is going is mission impossible, but it is the barrier they must overcome to dream of direct ascent. The draw last Sunday against Mirandés prevented them from catapulting to second place, but there are 12 days left to finish the League and it is not a chimera. Moreover, Zaragoza, second, is only six points and Cádiz, leader, nine. There are 36 points left to play. Girona has set its sights on Primera. The sensations given by the rojiblanca team are good and, on Saturday against Albacete, you can continue taking steps forward. Those of Pep Lluís Martí, if they do not fall, would reach the seventh game by adding and strengthen them in the playoff. But the goal is to hunt down direct ascent teams, there is room for maneuver, and hence in the locker room they have a clear thing: Montilivi must be key to it. So far this year, the rojiblanco team has 46 points and 33 of them have achieved them at home. It is the second best place in Segunda and they want to continue exploiting it.Securing the points at home will be crucial to try to make the definitive leap towards Primera and more considering that they have to visit direct rivals. Without going further, the final of the League will be exciting because the last three blocks that will pass through Montilivi will be Zaragoza, Almería and Cádiz, the first three classified. Of course, the other rivals that will come to the rojiblanco fief will not be simple either because they are immersed in the fight for the descent, like Albacete and Racing, or for not being in anyone’s zone and fighting to approach the playoff like the Numancia. In recent days, Girona has managed to create a great communion with its fans and hence the atmosphere that is breathed in the city is ideal for working with confidence and calm. The players feel that way and that To see the last defeat at home in the league, it is necessary to go back to 2019, on December 22, 21 against Mirandés (0-3).last_img read more

Board votes to cap student enrollment

first_img Board President Steve Tannehill said Oak Hills Elementary School and Pico Canyon Elementary School were built to accommodate the heavy population growth found west of Interstate 5. Even Wiley Canyon Elementary School got a makeover to hold more students. “But then you have to populate those schools and make enrollment decisions,” Tannehill said. “This is a step in a very long process that began 11 years ago when we opened Stevenson Ranch Elementary School.” Sue Doyle, (661) 257-5254 sue.doyle@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Pupils with siblings at the school will have enrollment priority. Later this month, the board will decide how to divvy up the remaining seats. Remaining pupils will be diverted to Oak Hills Elementary, but could switch to Stevenson Ranch elementary when seats open up in the future. Kindergarten enrollment at Pico Canyon Elementary School has been limited to 140 students, and school officials said so far there doesn’t appear to be an overflow this year that would send kids to another school. Shapiro said the board’s decisions were necessary to keep enrollment at its schools at about 750. Almost 1,000 students now attend Stevenson Ranch elementary. Enrollment can be a challenge in Stevenson Ranch, where many young families have moved into its roomy houses and, as a result, have dominated the school district with student growth, while older communities are experiencing declines. STEVENSON RANCH – Hoping to balance a growing student population inside its classrooms, Newhall’s school board voted Tuesday to freeze enrollment in some grades and to limit large incoming kindergarten classes – again. It’s the fifth straight year for enrollment freezes in first through sixth grades at Stevenson Ranch and Pico Canyon elementary schools. And it’s the second year in a row that kindergarten classes at Stevenson Ranch will be capped. “It’s hard to do, but we have to,” said school board member Mike Shapiro. “There are so many kids coming out of the Stevenson Ranch community.” last_img read more

Buy This Comic The Pervert OGN

first_img “A surprisingly honest and touching account of a trans girl surviving through sex work in Seattle. With excerpts published in the Eisner-nominated anthology ISLAND, the full-color volume, drawn and painted by REMY BOYDELL, is an unflinching debut graphic novel. Written by MICHELLE PEREZ.”THE PERVERT OGN(W): Michelle Perez (A): Remy BoydellI love painfully honest narratives within comics. That was pretty broad to say I know, but I honestly do. I think something is refreshing about stories that embark on genuinely thought-provoking journies that tightens its grip on you. At the beginning of The Pervert, Will Toledo preferences this graphic novel by saying “…it’s the sort of thing that should be allowed to speak for itself.” I can tell you that Will Toledo is absolutely right and that description of The Pervert is extremely dead-on.via Image ComicsThe Pervert is hard to talk about in more ways than one because you sincerely don’t know where to start. Michelle Perez pens a remarkably heartbreaking but authentic gut-punch of a comic that leaves you pondering but also breaks you inside out. A cast of anthropomorphic creatures chronicles their lives of sex work, relationships, clients, transition, and feelings. All told through an anonymous trans girl living in Seattle.Perez pulls no punches in this novel. It’s explicit, striking, arresting, hilarious and has you hoping for the best. I so enjoyed the uncertainty of this comic. You don’t know what will happen at the end of the day because Perez lets the chips fall where they may. She’s not afraid to let her character(s) get into some traumatic and agonizing situations. She lets the actions lead to consequences, lending themselves to decisions that need to be made at the end of the day.via Image ComicsThe Pervert isn’t going to be sunshine and roses. That’s so beautiful and brilliant about it. Real life doesn’t always let things tie up nicely. It levels out some harsh truth that makes you feel for the characters. Perez goes deeper than the surface things. She examines human connection, longing, acceptance, love, desire, empathy, apathy and many more feelings that are very hard to put out into the world. There’s no net to real them in. Perez’s script feels like a coming-of-age story in a different type of way. A way that not a lot of people know or have heart about which needs to be told. She lays the struggle of living a life where you have to do to get to where you need to go ultimately.Remy Boydell’s art makes it feel like you’re floating above this comic on a cloud. Boydell’s art illuminates story in a way that brings us into something gentle, but still very frank and honest, but sincere and serene. Her lines are precise and slimy detailed, but then what brings it all together is the use of watercolors that give it that wonderful serene nature. The use of watercolors by Boydell makes it very ethereal and almost unreal at times. The soft blues, pinks and more really brings you’re finding a soft balance between what you’re reading and what you’re seeing. Boydell’s art makes you feel like you’re flowing above the panels and watching everything take place below.via Image ComicsThe Pervert is a bit heavy read and not for the faint of heart. It’s a memorable and stunning graphic novel that will leave you with plenty of thoughts and emotions to hold. The Pervert contains a passionate and intensely moving narrative that does leave you with a glimmer of hope at the end of the day.
