GlobalPort sees Romeo trade as a ‘win-win solution’

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netLetting go of Terrence Romeo was a hard decision but GlobalPort felt parting ways with its top star was the right thing to do moving forward.“It’s sad and frustrating to let go one of hottest players in the land, but we will not stand in the way of one’s desire and happiness. So with a heavy heart, we are trading our top star Terrence Romeo to TNT Katropa,” GlobalPort management said in a statement.ADVERTISEMENT He struggled in the two games, averaging only 17.0 points, and the Batang Pier were sent into an exit in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals.Not helping was his clash with coach Pido Jarencio in the third quarter of GlobalPort’s 79-86 defeat where the two had a shouting match during a timeout.Still, GlobalPort remained grateful for the time they had with Romeo.“This is a win-win solution for us and the camp of Terrence. We have so much respect for the guy,” the statement continued.“We as a team must move on towards our main goal, which is to get better and contend for our first-ever championship. Besides, Tautuaa could be the missing link to our championship aspirations,” it ended.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio 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 respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback LATEST STORIES Embattled Romeo ‘deserves a second chance’ Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery The Batang Pier shipped Romeo and Yousef Taha to TNT in exchange of Mo Tautuaa and a pair of future draft picks on Tuesday, ending their five-year partnership with the super scorer.With Romeo, GlobalPort reached its first ever semifinals back in the 2016 Philippine Cup.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownThe former FEU stalwart has also etched his name as one of the league’s brightest stars, winning the scoring title thrice and earning a spot in Gilas Pilipinas.However, things didn’t go as planned this past conference, where Romeo played only two games due to a knee injury.

Gbarpolu Unity Partisans Champion Momo’s Reelection

first_imgAlthough Unity Party primary scheduled for June 28 in Gbarpolu County is being halted by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for further consultations, citizens from the county have reached and consensus and endorsed incumbent Senator Theodore J.S.B. Momo as a choice for the pending special Senatorial Election.A declaration of endorsement copy of which is in possession of this paper states, “Our nomination of Senator J.S.B. Theodore Momo, Jr. as expressed in this declaration shall, with immediate effect, constitute our legal action, judgment and best determination.”According to the UP partisans, the National Executive Committee of the party set guidelines on June 7, 2014 for the selection of candidates for the October senatorial election, and it (guideline) calls for a caucus nomination system in all of its fifteen chapters across Liberia.The partisans from Gbarpolu noted in their declaration that the national executive committee members including vice standard bearer, chair/president officer, vice chairperson for governmental affairs, national secretary general, chairman of the advisory council, two representatives of the National Youth Congress, officials of the National Women Congress, Unity Party Legislative officials of the county, amongst others form part of the endorsement.They also mentioned in their declaration of endorsement that they are under moral obligation to make correct judgment and elect a competent an “easy to sell” person as other contenders will be coming into the race with strong political force.Among those that affixed their signatures in the declaration of endorsement are Gibson L.M. Tarniah, Public Relation Officer, Adolphus Zazay, Youth Congress Chairperson, David Mulbah, Coordinator, District #2, K. Moses Molonpolo, County Co-chairman, Fatu Nyehn, Chairlady, Women Congress, and Robert Harris, Religious Affairs Officer.Others include Edwin Taylor, Coordinator, District #3, Borlay Kamara, Chairman for Mobilization & Recruitment, Paul M. Kimba, Secretary General, Quaye Beyan, Coordinator, District #1, Samelia Swary, County Treasurer, Legbah Molubah, Legal Affairs Officer and William M. Seh, Chairman, Unity Party Gbarpolu County Chapter.While the partisans of the county have carried on their endorsement of sitting Senator Theodore Momo, there is also information filtering that he is not the right choice for President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first partisan.According to the information, President Sirleaf has suggested Gbarpolu County District #3 Representative, Gertrude Lamin to contest the senatorial seat on the party’s ticket in the pending election.Members of the party in Gbarpolu are also of the concern that Gertrude Lamin had earlier neglected the party by resigning and pledging her loyalty to the Liberty Party.According to sources, members of the county chapter no longer consider her a part of the party.  Moreover, the members are of the view that they cannot endorse Gertrude Lamin because of her alleged incompetence to serve as a lawmaker.A source from the party told this paper that because of the preferment of Gertrude by the first partisan, the primary in Gbarpolu was halted until further consultation is held with Senator Momo to reach a consensus.The information also notes that Senator Momo is planning to withdraw from the process through protest.When Gender and Development Minister Julia Duncan Cassel was contacted on Sunday afternoon, she said the process was still ongoing.She referenced to the Secretary of the Unity Party as one that could provide information on the process, but attempts made to contact Wilmot Paye for comment on the prevailing issue proved futile as he could not answer to the calls made.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Heralds’ season ends in La Jolla

first_imgBut while the effort continued, the Heralds could not sustain the success. La Jolla Country Day scored a 65-37 victory in a CIF Southern California Regional first-round girls basketball playoff game Thursday night. When Annelise Calzada completed a 3-point play with 36 seconds left in the first quarter, the Heralds led, 14-13. The heavily favored Torreys needed a 3-point shot at the buzzer for a 16-14 lead at the end of the quarter. After Leissa Ronquillo and Jacqueline Joseph scored three minutes into the second period, the Heralds were tied, 18-18. “I think we got their attention,” Coach Bill Crammer said. “Our girls were just as confident as theirs, only maybe a little less experienced. “I’m a little disappointed that we lost control there in the second quarter. They started pressing us and that’s not our game, and they’re better at it than we are.” Country Day outscored the Heralds, 12-2, over the last 2:53 to take a 37-22 lead at halftime. La Jolla held a 21-6 edge on the boards at halftime, but Whittier Christian, which made 23 turnovers in its last game, had only five in the first half to stay close. • Photo Gallery: Whittier Christian vs. Country Day LA JOLLA – For 13 minutes, Whittier Christian High School played its best basketball of the year. center_img “We really focused on making smart passes tonight,” Kim Yoshinaga said.

Canine flu hits Southland; dog owners told to be alert

first_imgAn outbreak of canine flu has made its way to Southern California, and local veterinarians are advising dog owners to be alert for signs of infection in their pets. Symptoms include coughing, heavy nasal discharge, loss of appetite and fever, although some dogs might have a mild case and have no fever. No vaccine is available, and there is no known cure, officials said. The virus is spread by dogs coughing, sneezing or sharing water bowls, officials said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “This is a new virus, but it’s not the 1918 flu,” said Dr. Jon Bernstein, a veterinarian at Bermar Pet Hospital in Inglewood, referring to the 1918-1919 pandemic that infected one-third of the world’s population and killed up to 50 million people. Bernstein’s practice diagnosed the first confirmed cases in California in late August and early September. He treated four dogs, two of which had only mild symptoms and two of which had high fevers, full-blown pneumonia and loss of appetite. One dog, a 2-year-old Rottweiler, died, he said. Richard Holden, spokesman for the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association, said 60 dogs at a kennel in Stanton were treated in August for what veterinarians suspect may have been the canine flu. All of those dogs survived, and the kennel underwent a sterilization process and is back in operation. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the canine virus, which mimics some symptoms of kennel cough, was first diagnosed in the greyhound population in Florida in 2004. The virus was traced back to an equine virus, which apparently jumped species and infected dogs, the CDC said. The virus has been present in horses for 40 years but has never infected humans. About 80 percent of infected dogs so far have had only a mild case of the disease, and a small percentage will have complications, including pneumonia. The CDC estimates the fatality rate at 5 percent to 8 percent. “It is serious because it is new, and therefore, very few dogs are immune,” said Dr. Emily Beeler, a veterinarian with the Los Angeles County Veterinary Public Health and Rabies Control Program. “The most important thing to do is that if your dog is coughing, don’t take it to the dog park, don’t take it to the kennel or day care or walk it through your vet’s lobby, but do call your vet.” Lisa M.
