Bayern and Liverpool have been among the clubs linked with Havertz, though both player and club have ruled out a sale this summer.And speaking to Bild, Havertz admitted uncertainty over whether Bayern are the right club for him when he does decide to depart, though he added it is not his primary focus at the moment.“I really don’t know yet whether Bayern is the next and right step for me,” Havertz told Bild.“I also don’t know whether foreign countries would not be more suitable for me. I really don’t think too much about it at the moment.“I have that self-confidence, yes [I could play for Bayern]. But the same applies to other clubs as well.”However, while he is not considering a move at the moment, Havertz conceded that a transfer is in his future at some point, even if his focus remains on his current club.“I am honest, at some point the next step must come for me,” Havertz said. “But I’m not going to worry about when exactly that will happen.“What counts now is Bayer Leverkusen. We still have a lot to do. Leverkusen very quickly signaled that they wanted to keep me.“That’s why it wasn’t an issue for me. Now I’m starting my 10th year here, maybe we can make it a golden one for the club.“What will happen afterwards has not yet been decided. There is no club where I have already signed.”last_img read more

Yarmouth Justice Centre Opens

first_imgCitizens from Yarmouth County now have a new multi-purpose justice centre. Premier Rodney MacDonald opened the centre today, Feb. 13, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house. He was joined by Chief Justice Michael MacDonald, Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations Minister Richard Hurlburt, and Acadian Affairs Minister Chris d’Entremont. “This is the culmination of four years of hard work and will provide a new level of service to the people of Southwestern Nova Scotia,” said Premier MacDonald. “I am very proud that Nova Scotians will be served by such a well-designed, functional building that will offer many important justice-related services and programs under one roof.” The 48,000-square-foot justice centre has two courtrooms, five holding cells, rooms where lawyers can meet privately with clients, offices for court administration staff, and a law library. The centre also has offices for legal aid, the public prosecution service, sheriff services, probation services and victim services. “The new justice centre is a state-of-the-art addition to the town of Yarmouth,” said Mr. Hurlburt, Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. “It will provide privacy and all the amenities for clients, lawyers, police and the public. It is a service that fulfills needs identified many years ago.” “The Yarmouth Justice Centre will provide services to the largest Acadian region in the province,” said Mr. d’Entremont, Minister of Acadian Affairs. “This the first building of its kind in Nova Scotia to have bilingual signs, and that is very appropriate.” Staff will begin moving to the justice centre immediately, with court services commencing in the new facility Feb. 16. Members of the local courthouse users’ advisory committee were acknowledged for their guidance and support. The $14.8-million building was designed by John K. Dobbs & Associates of Halifax.last_img read more
