Gower leaves Swans

first_img “I’m sad to be leaving, but it is in the best interests of both myself and the club,” he said. The 34-year-old had made 145 appearances for the Swans since joining on a free transfer from Southend in 2008, and helped them win promotion to the Premier League through the play-offs in 2011. But Gower has found opportunities limited since Michael Laudrup succeeded Brendan Rodgers and, having spent the latter part of the season on loan at Charlton, has decided to end his spell in south Wales. Mark Gower and Swansea have agreed to terminate the midfielder’s contract a month early.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgColville it is.  The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation released results Thursday of a referendum election on whether to change their name and just over 84% of responding members said keep the name.Over 7,000 ballots were sent out but just over 1,900 valid ballots were tabulated with 1630 “no” votes against a name change and over 296 “yes” votes favoring a new name.The Colville name came from Andrew Colvile, a Governor of the Hudson Bay Company.  In 1872, an Executive Order identified the tribal confederation with the word “Colville.”Elections Chairman and Colville Business Council member Jack Ferguson said today. “ The process of considering this change has given us the opportunity to know more about the Tribes’ name and the history behind it. It has helped to build awareness and also determine what the majority of voters prefer.”Today, more than 9,500 descendants of 12 aboriginal tribes of Indians are enrolled in the Confederated Tribes of the Colville.   The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation include the Colville, Nespelem,  San Poil, Lake, Palus, Wenatchi (Wenatchee), Chelan, Entiat, Methow, southern Okanogan, Moses Columbia and the Nez Perce of Chief Joseph’s Bands.last_img read more
