Fonacier wants no letup from NLEX

first_imgLarry Fonacier. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netLarry Fonacier turned back the clock and looked like the gunslinger of old as he shot NLEX out of danger en route to a 103-100 stunner over San Miguel Beer in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup on Sunday.With the Road Warriors engaged in a tight battle in the last two minutes, the 35-year-old first struck at the 1:46 mark for the go-ahead triple to push the Road Warriors up, 98-95.ADVERTISEMENT It also helps that he’s playing alongside players who are no stranger to Guiao’s system like Quiñahan and Cyrus Baguio, as they all give NLEX the much-needed veteran presence.Fonacier thinks the Road Warriors’ win over the Grand Slam-seeking Beermen is a sign that they can compete against any team in the league.“It means that we’re on the right track of being able to compete at a high level this conference. We’re almost on our goal of making it to the semis. We’re an inch closer to that and we don’t want to relax. We don’t want any meltdown like in our previous game,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Lassiter after SMB loss to NLEX: ‘We’re still finding our way’ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite View comments He doubled down a minute after, puncturing the dagger three from the top of the arc off a JR Quiñahan pass with 23.9 seconds left to give his side a comfortable 101-97 edge that took the air out of the Beermen.“Larry was vintage from eight years ago,” said ROS coach Yeng Guiao, who acquired the veteran marksman via trade late in the 2017 Commissioner’s Cup.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Financial Autonomy Act Goes for Concurrence

first_imgThe Senate at its 52nd Day Sitting last Thursday narrowly defeated (9-8) Senator Oscar Cooper’s motion for reconsideration filed against the passage of the controversial Legislative Financial Autonomy Act, which grants the Legislature the right to control its own finances. With the narrow defeat, the Act now goes to the House of Representatives for concurrence and onward submission to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for her signature and subsequent printing into hand bills.The Bill was submitted to the Senate plenary two months ago by Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor, and grants among other things that funds allotted to the Legislature in the National Budget for each fiscal year, shall, on a quarterly basis, be deposited by the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning into the account of the Legislature at the Central Bank of Liberia. The Act also provides compliance with all provisions of the Public Procurement and Concessions Act of 2010 (restated), the Public Finance Management (PFM) Law, the Internal Audit Agency Act and National Budget Law.The Act, passed by the Senate, promises to comply with Government Adopted Accounting Standards and Procedures, and shall be audited annually by the General Auditing Commission. But in his two-page motion for reconsideration, Margibi County Senator Oscar Cooper urged his colleagues to ask themselves if they are currently prepared for this responsibility. “Have we set up a proper financial management unit? Are the Houses of Senate and Representatives planning to share an account? Who are the parties responsible to manage the account? There are too many unknowns at this point, as the Bill is too vague, and the intent of becoming financially autonomous is not clearly stated in this Bill,” Senator Cooper pointed out. Senator Cooper then proposed the establishment of a financial administration and management unit that will require vetting of the Legislature’s existing financial staff and systems and restructuring, “so that upon the receipt of the first quarterly deposit, we are prepared to make timely payments to all those whose monthly livelihoods would become our responsibility.”But in debating the motion, which had already been tabled on two occasions, eight Senators including the author of the Bill, Senator Taylor, argued that granting the motion would be the end of hope for future passage; and therefore, voted eight for and eight against, allowing the presiding officer, Montserrado County ranking Senator Geraldine Doe-Sherif, to take the decisive vote for passage. It was observed that most if not all Senators favored the Bill, but were calling for more work to be done to prevent future complication. One of those was River Gee Senator Conmany Wesseh, who described the Bill as “an excellent idea, very brilliant suggestion; something that we all should embrace. But I think that when you make law and foresee that there will be a problem with implementation, then we have to exercise caution.”Senator Wesseh continued: “The Bill is very good, unfortunately it is presented at a time that if we are not careful, it has already set the pace for failure; we should be very careful so that this brilliant idea should not be thrown out of the window.”Meanwhile, immediately following the passage, the presiding officer who also chairs the Senate committee on Executive, requested Secretary of the Senate J. Nanborlor F. Sengbeh to transmit the Senate’s action to the House of Representatives for concurrence. But with a seemingly divided House of Representatives as displayed last Thursday when two sittings took place in the Constitutional Chamber for members of the House of Representatives, and another in the Joint Chamber presided over by the Deputy Speaker, one Senator joked that the Secretary must wear his hat of common sense in deciding which of the two groups he is Constitutionally dealing with. “Sengbeh knows we have one Speaker and one Clerk of the House of Representatives, the two receive communications on behalf of that body,” one Senator assured our reporter.

Another landed under the house and a third hit his bedroom window, but ricocheted.The man’s wife, Judy Barker said she had just finished reading her Bible when the two explosions were heard.One of the ‘bottle bombs’ found at the scene“One was in front and one was at the back,” she recalled while noting that she immediately woke her husband.The woman stated that as the Police arrived and commenced their investigation, there was evidence that one of the bottles was thrown under the house. She noted that fragments were seen on the car, on the window and in the yard.“There was even one that the Police found on the road that was not used a yet,” she added.Surveillance footage has captured two persons leaving the scene hurriedly moments after the explosions were heard.

Service groups vie for funds

first_imgTim Whittier, executive director of Southern California Rehabilitation Services in Downey, also approached the commission for funding. The program provides independent-living services for people with disabilities. Last year, it received $6,000 in block grant money. Whittier has requested the same amount for the coming fiscal year, he said. “Pico Rivera is a wonderful supporter of ours,” he said. Next month, city officials will finalize a list of grantees. The list will go to the City Council in April for final approval. CDBG money will be doled out to selected nonprofits in July, officials said. araceli.esparza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In October, the city provided a $10,000 grant to the program, but the project could use an additional $30,000 in federal funds, said Paul Carrillo, program director for The Crossroads Project. “I feel good about it,” he said after his presentation. “We’ve had nothing but support.” Groups applying for the funding must have projects or programs that benefit the city’s low- or moderate-income residents. Or they must be involved in eliminating blight in the community, said Jeff Brauckmann, head of the community development department. Being based in Pico Rivera in not a prerequisite for funding, he added. “We look at how they would service the \ community,” Lupo said. PICO RIVERA – A dozen local nonprofit groups and projects – including a veterans’ services group, a gang-intervention program, and drug and alcohol treatment programs – are vying for a share of nearly $1 million in federal funding the city will dole later this year. Representatives from several of the organizations made their pitches for the Community Development Block Grant funding Wednesday before the city’s Community Resources Advisory Commission. For fiscal year 2007-08, the city has $947,218 in CDBG grants to provide to nonprofit groups and agencies serving city residents. Officials are looking to spread the money around. But some applicants might not get funding. “Our goal is to assist all of these nonprofits,” said Community Development Department Coordinator Christina Lupo. “We will explore all our options before we present our final decisions on who is going to be funded.” last_img read more

Silva shines as City power to record 15th successive win

first_imgPep Guardiola’s side brushed aside a poor Swansea side to further tighten their grip on the title race with two goals in each half at the Liberty Stadium.City remain 11 points clear of second placed Manchester United and once again looked every inch the champions-elect.It was Spanish playmaker David Silva who was at the heart of City’s historic success with two superb finishes.The game began at a terrific pace and the first chance fell to Aguero on five minutes as he weaved his way through two challenges and fired into the side-netting.A minute later some neat footwork gave Raheem Sterling a sight of goal and Swansea defender Mike van der Hoorn had to make an important interception.But it took a save at each end in a matter of moments to keep the scoresheet blank.First it was home goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski who reacted quickly to get down low and push away a drive from Fernandinho from the edge of the penalty area.Then Ederson in the Manchester City goal had to get down well to keep out an effort from Jordan Ayew, who had cut in from the left.De Bruyne blasted a difficult effort high and wide before Aguero headed over from a left-wing cross by David Silva.Then a free-kick by De Bruyne bounced around the penalty area and struck a frustrated Nicolas Otamendi on its way for a corner before Aguero looped a header onto the roof of the net from a De Bruyne cross.And Otamendi blasted well off target after Fabianski had failed to gather cleanly from a left-wing cross.– City superiority –Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (L) has a shot on goal during their match against Swansea City in Swansea, south Wales on December 13, 2017 © AFP / Geoff CADDICKCity’s superiority was increasing, however, and a combination of poor defending and a fine finish gave them a 27th-minute lead.Bernardo Silva crossed from the right and David Silva crept between Van der Hoorn and Kyle Naughton to finish superbly from close range with the outside of his left foot.It was 2-0 on 34 minutes when Naughton fouled Sterling to the right of the Swansea penalty area and De Bruyne’s hopeful free-kick evaded a host of players and found its way under the body of an unsighted Fabianski.Less than a minute into the second half, David Silva almost made it 3-0 with a lofted shot that drifted just wide following a neat exchange of passes with Aguero.But David Silva made no mistake on 53 minutes as he added his side’s third goal, exchanging passes superbly and ghosting between two home defenders before lifting a shot over the advancing Fabianski.Eliaquim Mangala should have added a fourth goal moments later but, after meeting David Silva’s cross, he failed to make a clean contact and scuffed his effort wide.The visitors then compiled a superb passing move that ended with Aguero firing narrowly wide.Guardiola had a rare scare when a shot from the edge of the area by Roque Mesa took a big deflection that wrong-footed Ederson, but the keeper readjusted well to make a smart save.With five minutes remaining Aguero wrapped up the scoring as he drifted easily past two Swansea defenders and found the bottom corner.Even when Swansea threatened a consolation goal late on, Otamendi was on hand to block an effort from Leroy Fer before hooking the loose ball off the line.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s David Silva (R) celebrates after scoring their third goal during thetheir match against Swansea City in Swansea, south Wales on December 13, 2017 © AFP / Geoff CADDICKLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 14 – Manchester City powered to a Premier League record 15th successive victory as David Silva’s double inspired a 4-0 demolition of rock-bottom Swansea on Wednesday.Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero also found the net as the runaway leaders broke the previous Premier League record winning streak set by Arsenal between February and August 2002.last_img read more

Elected officials set to get 4.16% salary increases

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre “They’re out asking for tax increases at the same time they’re bumping up their salary. The apt description here is tone deaf,” said Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. “They could refuse this. They don’t have to take it.” And that’s exactly what Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said he would do. In a statement Wednesday, the mayor said he would not accept the raise – worth $8,283 – but instead wants it to go into the city’s general fund. “With the City of Los Angeles facing a tough budget year, I do not believe now is the time for me to accept an automatic and retroactive pay raise,” the mayor said. In the midst of a financial emergency, Los Angeles’ mayor, council, controller and city attorney are set to get annual raises worth $7,000 to $9,000 each. The 4.16 percent salary hike takes effect as Los Angeles faces a severe financial crunch, and city leaders are considering cutting services to balance the budget. The city also is asking voters in February to preserve the telephone users tax, worth $270 million a year. The new raise for city officers comes after an 8.5 percent salary increase in January and two increases worth a total of 6 percent in 2006. “Being mayor of Los Angeles is reward enough, and I’m committed to working 24/7 to protect essential services.” The mayor’s current salary is $223,142. The raise would boost his pay to $232,425. The mayor’s aides were quick to add that the mayor’s decision was a personal choice as “chief executive officer of the city” and not intended to goad fellow elected officials into rejecting the increase as well. But several officials said they, too, would forgo the wage hike. Councilwoman Wendy Greuel said she couldn’t “in good conscience” cut city services and then accept a raise. “It would be hypocritical to ask city departments to tighten their belts if I’m not willing to do the same,” Greuel said. “We are facing a difficult budget and this is one of the many tough choices that we will have to make, but it is simply the right thing to do.” Already the nation’s highest-paid city council, L.A. council member’s salaries will jump from $171,648 to $178,789. City Controller Laura Chick said she would be willing to forgo her salary increase – from $188,812 to $196,667 – if the mayor and council would agree to reform how city officials’ salaries are set. The new 4.16 percent wage increase (retroactive to July 1) was approved this month by the Judicial Council of California, which sets salaries for judges. L.A.’s elected leaders have their wages pegged to the judicial council structure, so when judges get a raise, so do the city’s 18 elected officials. “Let’s start now. Let’s not take the increase and change it going forward,” Chick said. “It’s about transparency and forthrightness. “It’s about logic and good government to base salary increases on public criteria and do it publicly.” kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com 213-978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

O’Neill said a plastic trash can near the playground was set on fire and then melted into a rubber mat that provided padding over piles of wood chips. The fire escalated from there. Residents who lived in nearby hills and saw the flames that night called the Fire Department. The school was closed at that time for the winter holidays. The fire had shaken the neighborhood around the school and left children wondering why their playground burned down. It also left parents and teachers looking for answers to questions about a crime that didn’t make any sense. Parents and pupils are finding solace now as news of the arrests spreads, said Isa DeArmas, principal. “It was a relief. I did have concerns that we’d have a repeat incident,” she said. “It was good to have closure.” The school did have a second fire, but it was on a much smaller scale. Firecrackers were found on the ground near bits and pieces of a shirt and other material by a school bench that had been set on fire. The fire didn’t reach beyond the bench. School employees made the discovery Jan. 23 as the school day was starting. O’Neill said the arrested teens were asked about the second fire, but that they said they didn’t know about it. They were not charged in connection with the Jan. 23 fire. Sue Doyle, (661) 257-5254 sue.doyle@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The 16-year-olds, who attend Canyon High School and Opportunities for Learning, were arrested separately last week and then released to their parents, a sheriff’s official said Monday. Because the boys are minors, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department would not release their names. The arrests follow a nearly two-month-long arson investigation at Rio Vista Elementary School where a jungle gym, swing bars and slides burned to the ground the evening of Dec. 19. Arson investigators estimated damage at about $140,000 in what’s considered the worst case of vandalism to ever hit the Saugus Union School District. An anonymous tip led to the boys’ arrests, said sheriff’s Detective Pat O’Neill of the department’s Juvenile and Gang Unit. The case has been turned over to prosecutors in Sylmar who handle juvenile cases. last_img read more
