Governor Wolf Announces More Aid to Puerto Rico, Calls for Swifter Federal Action to Help Americans

first_imgGovernor Wolf Announces More Aid to Puerto Rico, Calls for Swifter Federal Action to Help Americans September 27, 2017 National Issues,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today said more Pennsylvania resources are headed to Puerto Rico and that the state is ready and willing to fulfill federal aid requests. Governor Wolf called on the federal government to act with greater urgency to assist millions of residents in the American territory facing a humanitarian crisis.“The images of Americans in Puerto Rico facing this humanitarian crisis and desperate for aid are unconscionable, and there is absolutely no good reason that the executive and legislative branches are not acting more swiftly to protect these American citizens,” Governor Wolf said.“The President can’t wait to send Congress another disaster-spending request until mid-October. The time to act is now. Lift the Jones Act to allow foreign shipping vessels into Puerto Rico to deliver desperately needed fuel and supplies. The more than three million U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico deserve so much better.”Pennsylvania is monitoring requests for assistance from Puerto Rico and the federal government for resources, as it did with Texas and Florida. Most recently, Pennsylvania fulfilled a request through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact for two helicopters and crews, a request filled by the Pennsylvania National Guard. In addition, several members of PA-Task Force 1 are providing incident support on the ground in Puerto Rico through the National Urban Search and Rescue system.“While we understand the need to initially assess the situation, the time has long passed for determining how to get the most basic needs such as electricity and water to the people of Puerto Rico. For the federal government to do so little is inhumane.”center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Bojan Krkic ‘very close’ to Stoke return – Mark Hughes

first_img The Potters head into this weekend’s slate of games occupying the bottom three along with fellow winless outfits Sunderland and Newcastle. However, Hughes is relaxed over their slow start to the season which has included fixtures against Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal. “It’s early days, we have no anxiety,” Hughes said. “We know we’re a good group of players and the first win will come, ideally at the weekend.” Both Stoke and Leicester have failed to keep a clean sheet this term and Claudio Ranieri has offered the incentive of free pizza if his players manage to keep a shut-out on Saturday. Rather than following the Italian’s lead, Hughes’ squad might get treated to a delicacy closer to home instead. “We’ll go for oatcakes, I think; a lot nicer,” he said. Bojan Krkic could be included in Stoke’s starting XI this weekend after boss Mark Hughes said he feels the Spaniard is close to delivering his pre-injury form. “He’s been desperate to play for about five weeks,” Hughes said. “He’s understanding of the fact that I’ll pick him on merit, I’ll pick him when I feel he’s ready and I’ll pick him when I feel he can have the same impact as he had prior to the injury. He’s very, very close to that point. “We’re delighted that he’s an option so early. We didn’t really expect him to be in my thoughts at this stage given the injury that he had. As a consequence of how well he worked and the amount of work he put in, he deserves a lot of credit. “We’re delighted we’re in the position we find ourselves in and I have the option to pick him if I want.” It may be eight months since Bojan last started a game for Hughes but the Welshman praised his “tenacity and drive” in getting himself fit again and believes those qualities will serve him well as he looks to kick-start winless Stoke’s season. “There was a lot of expectation on him because he had a huge impact for us,” Hughes added. “Everybody wants him to come back and make that immediate impact. If the timing of his comeback wasn’t managed correctly, he wouldn’t be in the position to come back and make the impact that we think he will do when he’s back playing regularly.” Striker Mame Diouf is once again struggling with a hamstring issue and may miss the visit of the Foxes, although Glen Johnson has trained this week following a groin strain and captain Ryan Shawcross is jogging again after a back operation. The 25-year-old ex-Barcelona and Roma forward last began a Barclays Premier League game in January, when he got the winner against Leicester, who visit the Britannia Stadium on Saturday. Later that month cruciate knee ligament damage finished a season in which he had scored five times in 18 appearances but – having featured in the Capital One Cup and as a substitute against Arsenal this term – Hughes believes Bojan is already near the levels he produced prior to his injury.
