UPDATED: Leafs grant request, trade Nolan Percival to Beaver Valley

first_imgIt’s not like the Nelson Leafs were looking to move local minor hockey product Nolan Percival out of town.On the contrary.The Nelson native had approached Leaf management about a month ago, asking for a trade to jumpstart his junior hockey career.However, during the weekend Leaf coach and general manager Dave McLellan granted the 18-year-old forward his wishes, moving Percival to Murdoch Division rival Beaver Valley Nitehawks in a Kootenay International Junior Hockey League deal that saw the Green and White receive future considerations.”Nolan had played his whole hockey career in Nelson and he felt like he was not having a great year so he approached us asking for a trade,” McLellan told The Nelson Daily Monday.”Nolan felt getting away from his his home town and getting a fresh start would help him.”Percival joins the likes of other former Nelson Minor Hockey grads who have flourished with the Nitehawks.Some of those players include Alex MacLeod, Ryan Sookro and Justin Niminiken.Moving Percival to Beaver Valley is not the only move McLellan has made as the second-year skipper looks to ignite a Leaf team that has struggled to stay with the Murdoch elite teams three months into the KIJHL season.The Leafs acquired 5’11”, 170-pound forward Colton Nelson from the Columbia Valley Rockies for future considerations.”Colton is a skilled forward we’re hoping can compete for a top six position for us,” McLellan explained. McLellan said he is actively looking to improve the Leafs before the first major roster deadline of the Junior Hockey League season when all Junior teams must cut down their rosters to 25 cards on December 1st.Leafs host the Castlegar Rebels Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.Leafs deal Nelson native Nolan Percival to rival Beaver ValleyIn a surprise deal between two Murdoch Division rivals, The Nelson Daily has learned the Nelson Leafs have traded Heritage City native Nolan Percival to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League deal was made after the Leafs 3-2 overtime loss to the Hawks Friday at the NDCC Arena.The 5’8”, 170-pound forward had played his entire KIJHL career in Nelson, scoring 14 goals while adding 26 assists in 125 games.Percival, 18, played Minor Hockey in Nelson before joining the Leafs as a 16-year-old rookie in 2013.In 13 playoff games, Percival registered one assist.It is believed Percival was dealt to the Hawks in exchange for future considerations.Percival, a shifty forward with deceptive speed, will help a Beaver Valley team riddled with injuries.The Hawks currently have a handful of players on the injury list, including captain and inspirational leader, Lyle Frank.Percival is expected to see action when the Hawks Friday when Beaver Valley travels to Creston of face the Thunder Cats.Beaver Valley dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to Grand Forks Saturday in the Boundary City — the third straight loss at the hands of the Border Bruins.Meanwhile the Leafs host the Castlegar Rebels Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.last_img read more

Ladies All-Ireland Senior Football Semi-Finals Fixed For August 25th

first_imgTyrone will play Sligo in the first of the 2018 TG4 All-Ireland intermediate semi-finals on Saturday, August 18. A week later, Saturday August 25 at 1pm, the second intermediate semi-final will be played, featuring the winners of the Clare v Meath and Roscommon v Laois quarter-final fixtures, which are down for decision tomorrow (August 11).The LGFA is also in a position to confirm that both senior championship semi-finals will now be played on Saturday, August 25 at 2.45pm and 4.30pm.Cork will play Donegal at 2.45pm and the winners of the remaining quarter-final fixtures – Dublin v Kerry and Galway v Mayo – will feature in the other semi-final at 4.30pm.The LGFA flagged the potential of a dual clash involving Cork a number of weeks ago, and that came to pass when the county’s footballers qualified for the All-Ireland semi-final, which was scheduled for August 18.In light of this, the LGFA carefully reviewed arrangements and worked extremely hard behind the scenes in recent days to find a compromise.LGFA CEO Helen O’Rourke commented: “We announced the times and dates of our summer fixtures schedule last March, when it was clearly stated that our All-Ireland senior semi-finals would be played on August 18 and August 25.“We stated at the time that finding suitable times for our televised fixtures proved extremely challenging, and that we felt restricted to a large degree, due to the GAA’s new, condensed fixtures schedule.“When Cork qualified for the TG4 All-Ireland senior semi-final last weekend, a dual fixtures clash arose but, as an Association, we took it upon ourselves to find a solution suitable to all parties.“It should be noted at this point that altering a fixtures schedule so late in the season has a significant knock-on effect and impact on club and county players in other counties, and that we had to negotiate a number of logistical and contractual issues on this occasion before arriving at this solution.“It should also be pointed out that personal plans relating to some individuals, around previously confirmed holiday arrangements and family occasions, were also considered and factored into exhaustive discussions with various stakeholders.“We would like to thank Donegal for agreeing to play their semi-final a week later, on August 25, and to our championship sponsors and broadcast partners TG4, who have had to revise a number of plans to accommodate this change.“We would like to wish all of our counties competing in the senior, intermediate and junior championships the very best of luck for the remainder of their respective campaigns, and we look forward to seeing big crowds present for the games between now and finals day on September 16 at Croke Park.”print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association can confirm the following arrangements for the forthcoming TG4 All-Ireland intermediate and senior semi-finals.last_img read more

Indiana ~ Multiple Taxes: Certain Remote Merchants Required to Collect Sales Tax, Use of Local Income Tax Expanded

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportIndiana has enacted legislation requiring retail merchants without a physical presence to collect sales tax on retail transactions made in Indiana and making changes to the local income tax. Specifically, a retail merchant that does not have a physical presence in Indiana shall, as an agent for the state, collect sales tax on retail transactions made in Indiana. The merchant must remit the sales tax, and comply with all applicable procedures and requirements of the sales tax laws as if the retail merchant has a physical presence in Indiana, if: (1) the retail merchant’s gross revenue from sales into Indiana in a calendar year exceeds $100,000; or (2) the retail merchant makes sales into Indiana in more than 200 separate transactions. The Department of Revenue is authorized to bring a declaratory judgment action against a remote seller to establish that the remote seller has an obligation to collect sales tax and that the remote seller’s obligation to collect sales tax is valid under state and federal law. However, the department and other state agencies and entities may not, during the pendency of the declaratory judgment action (including any appeals from a judgment in the declaratory judgment action), enforce the obligation to collect sales tax against any person that does not affirmatively consent or otherwise remit the sales tax on a voluntary basis.Local Income TaxesEffective, retroactive to January 1, 2017, for local income tax purposes, law enforcement training is added to the permitted uses of the tax. Further, the bill specifies that, for a county that adopted a levy freeze under the former county adjusted gross income tax (CAGIT) or county option income tax (COIT), the levy freeze must be funded using a minimum levy freeze rate that may not be decreased or rescinded unless the levy freeze dollar amount can be funded by a lower levy freeze rate for a year. The bill specifies that the maximum levy freeze tax rate is one percent (1%).H.B. 1129, Laws 2017, effective July 1, 2017 and as notedlast_img read more
