He was smiling and speaking to fans and friends, feeling better after his latest bout of what he called “benign positional vertigo.”He said he whipped his head around quickly to call for Seventh Woods to get in the game when the condition struck. Williams said he felt good enough that he planned to return to the bench with about four minutes left. “But we were up by seven,” he said smiling. “And I didn’t want to jinx it.”Turns out, the Tar Heels almost did that on their own — the 70-63 lead cut to two in the final seconds — before holding on for their fifth straight win and 12th in the past 13 games.Cameron Johnson had 19 points with six 3s of his own, and Luke Maye had 13 points and 10 rebounds.The Tigers (17-12, 7-9) closed to 80-79 on Mitchell’s foul shots with 10.3 seconds left.ADVERTISEMENT Brownell said he watched video of the final drive. “It was tough, it was tough,” he said.It was the fourth time this ACC season Clemson lost on the final play.Marquise Reed led Clemson with 24 points, and Elijah Thomas had 14 points and 11 rebounds.

There have been calls for clarity over whether drivers from the Republic will need green cards to travel into Northern Ireland after Brexit.As the March 29th deadline looms, a number of insurance companies have issued green card forms to customers who plan on driving in Northern Ireland or elsewhere in the UK immediately after ‘no deal’ Brexit.Over one million green card forms have been issued by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau of Ireland (MIBI). However, confusion surrounds whether the cards will actually be needed. “Under a ‘no deal’ Brexit then Irish insurance documentation may no longer be recognised by the law enforcement authorities in Northern Ireland or the rest of the UK,” the MIBI warned.The penalties for driving without insurance in Northern Ireland and the UK include having your vehicle seized at the side of the road, fines and impoundment.An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar told the Dáil yesterday that there would be a ‘grace period’ for drivers who are based in Northern Ireland crossing the border into the Republic.However, Mr Varadkar said there are no such commitments for drivers from the south travelling across the border into the UK. “We can’t make commitments on behalf of the UK government,” he said. Donegal Deputy Pearse Doherty has echoed the confusion of many motorists who do not know if they will need a green card in the coming weeks.The Sinn Féin TD said: “There is a huge anger in communities that they now have to hold an international insurance certificate to travel across the border, to travel for example across the Lifford Bridge into Strabane, a journey that many people do on a daily basis.”Speaking at a Dáil Committee this week, Deputy Doherty said: “For the life of me, I cannot understand why the issue of drivers being required to carry in their vehicles an international travel document was not resolved beforehand.“This is a very serious issue and it works both ways. Telling people travelling from the Bogside to Buncrana that they need to carry such a document is anathema to them. They are not happy with it and they will not accept it. It is not right. This is an area on which the Government, particularly the line Department, should receive genuine criticism for not having its homework and preparations done.” Confusion mounts over green cards for cross-border motorists was last modified: March 11th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Brexitgreen card
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As far as the wind, we didn’t have anything like they had further west. I think the wind got up to 28 or 30 miles per hour and the rain stayed north of us for awhile. The final round came through early this morning and we had 4 to 6 inches of rain. The kids’ school actually closed today because of water across the roads.I really feel for the people in western Ohio where they had those devastating storms. We can’t complain at all. What we had was no comparison.This will put harvest to a halt for a while. We have around 400 acres of corn left, all of our double-crops left to cut and some custom work to do. We have our work cut out for us with the conditions we’ve had but we have had other years like this. We may be running at night on frozen ground for a while.I don’t know how much of the rain soaked in. I think it will be every bit of a week until we can get back in. I saw we could get down into the low 20s this weekend and we could maybe run if it gets frozen.When you get to this time of year, there is less sun and cooler weather and it doesn’t dry out. It has been fairly wet here. We maybe only ran two days out of the last 10.This rain was too much for the wheat. We’ll have water standing on some of the fields. If it starts freezing with water still on the wheat that won’t be good. Wheat is pretty tough but standing water is not good. It should have a good root system, though, and I think it will be OK.We have been pretty fortunate with the corn yields. The replanted corn is maybe 30 bushels less than everything else, but the yield is still nothing to complain about. I think if we can get it all shelled without any issues we may have the best corn crop we’ve ever had for an average.We haven’t had stalk issues yet but after this we probably will. Half of the corn we have left to shell got six inches of rain so I expect to see some stalk issues. Any heavy winds now will be a problem. We sprayed the corn this year and that sure does pay when you get into a late harvest like this. We have seen that it helps it stand better than corn that hasn’t been sprayed.
