Required fields are marked * Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Make a comment A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge threw out a class-action lawsuit that challenged the $18 million annual transfer from the city of Pasadena’s power fund to the city’s general fund.The lawsuit was filed in 2017 and claimed the use of electric rates to fund the transfer to the General Fund violated the state’s constitution and is a non-voter approved tax.“I am pleased that justice prevailed,” said Pasadena Mayor Victor Gordo. “The transfer continues to be approved by Pasadena residents, and for good reason. Pasadena has proven that our residents have confidence in receiving high-quality essential services and that residents want to ensure that our general fund and tax dollars are protected from class-action lawsuits.”Pasadena voters established and confirmed City Charter provisions allowing the general fund transfer a total of seven times, dating back to 1934. In November, voters passed Measure P, which maintained the annual transfer.The general fund is the city’s primary operating fund, providing a number of essential services to Pasadena residents and businesses.Almost 84 percent of Pasadena voters approved Measure P, confirming that voters approve of having a portion of their electric rates fund the $18 million annual transfer to the general fund.With voter approval of Measure P, and a January 29 published (precedential) appellate decision approving of Sacramento’s utility fund transfer, Pasadena sought reconsideration in its case.Rather, the court decision Wednesday recognized that Measure P and the court decision on Sacramento’s transfer both require “new and different orders granting [Pasadena’s] motion for summary judgment.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Senator Suggests County Social Dev. Trust Fund

first_imgThe Chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Accounts and Audit is seeking the support of the Liberian Senate for a change in the procedures and policies under which the Social Development Fund (SDF) operates.In order to achieve that feat, Senator Edward Dagoseh is recommending that “a County Social Development Trust Fund be set up and its management team be completely professional in order for it to operate without the influence of political stakeholders.”In a communication to the Senate plenary dated January 15, the Grand Cape Mount County lawmaker asserted that annually, millions of United States dollars are put into the SDF to ensure that affected communities benefit from economic development to mitigate conflict in areas where concession companies operate.This, Senator Dagoseh intimated, is a substantial amount for community development considering the national budget needs of the country.Another key concern stated in Senator Dagoseh’s communication is the participation and interference of political actors, such as Legislators and ministers in the administration and implementation of the SDF, which he said conflicts with their respective roles to provide oversight, monitoring, and evaluation.Consequently, said the PAC Chair, a series of financial, administrative malpractices and political disagreements usually undermine the implementation of targeted projects for affected communities.Senator Dagoseh lamented that the recent County Development Reports indicate that existing procedures and policies have not attained the proportionate results relating to the purpose of the SDF.“At present, payment procedures from the SDF to the counties are full of bureaucratic bottlenecks, and in general, financial and operational reports from the counties to the Ministry of Internal Affairs as well as the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning are not given timely consideration thus delaying payments to the counties.”As a result of this, Senator Dagoseh said the commencement of approved projects are most times delayed and run into the rainy season. The projects are therefore not completed on time, not done according to specifications or are abandoned by contractors.Except for few, majority of the Senators voted for the set up of an SDF Trust Fund, and a motion proffered by Senator Armah Jallah was passed. The communication was sent to the committees on Internal Affairs; Ways, Means, Finance & Budget; and Lands, Mines and Energy; who are expected to report to plenary within two weeks.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Live Thru Ebola

first_img“Live Thru Ebola” Is a very touchy melodic Message Johantz Wilson and his partner Ash Monique (a 14yr-old aspiring singer from London who now lives in Mount Vernon, the United States); is sending out to everyone that is affected one way or another by this deadly Ebola disease.  In the song, Ash Monique sings while Wilson raps praying for better days to come.This song, which is now making some serious international airwaves and getting a lot of media attention, came as an inspiration to Johantz after he got a phone call from his mother in Liberia telling him he had lost one of his Favorite Cousins to Ebola.  Johantz told LIB Life that his cousin recently died from Ebola and he urges the public not to lose sight of the dangers posed by the virus, in as much as there’s news that the virus is slowing down a little.  He said when he heard his cousin had died from the disease, he became more determined to return to West Africa sooner than he had planned to help those suffering from the Virus.  “It was terrible because when I got the news that Ebola had hit one of my very own, it just kind of shook and tore me up,” said Johantz when he got the call from his mother who still lives in Liberia. “When mom called me that night, all I heard in her voice was, ‘Ebola is killing us, Ebola is killing us.’ She kept repeating that over and over and I was like mom, take it easy, everything is going to be alright.”Wilson says his cousin, 38 year-old Betty Nabgah, left two of her daughters behind after contracting the illness.  “It was disturbing.  It was very hard to take in, you know, and all I kept on doing was hoping and praying that there was going to be better days.”  His main concern now like everyone else is that he prays to see no new cases in the three most affected countries especially his home, Liberia.  He also aims to help create awareness about the problem worldwide. This is why Wilson says he’s working with the American Red Cross to promote a song he wrote and produced.  “The song is basically a message from my heart.”  He added that the song is dedicated to his cousin and hopes it will soothe the hearts of other families that are suffering from all the pain the virus has caused.  “I just knew that what I wrote would make a difference”.Meanwhile, according to Wilson, all of the money the song will raise will go to the America Red Cross, which they’ll use to for the purpose towards the fight against Ebola by checking the spread of the disease in West Africa and worldwide; and help support families who are being affected by the disease.Also speaking on News 12, Paul Shipman of the American Red Cross says, “the song is going to raise awareness about the need to fight Ebola and it’s also going to raise funds.”Wilson is a native of Liberia, born in Buchanan and attended Cathedral Catholic School up till age 12, when he left for the United States in 1982. He still has his mother and other family members who are facing the crisis here in Liberia, not knowing what the outcome will be. He’s a music producer, songwriter, performer and owner of an independent record label Lasmouve Records based in Bridgeport, where he presently lives. Wilson’s record label has been established since 2001.Wilson hopes to be in Liberia within the next year or two after being away for so long. His music, Live Thru Ebola can be found on Youtube via the QR code or on www.lasmouve.com.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Lakepoint celebrates 50 years of Oilmen’s golf

first_imgThis was Mckinnon’s second year playing in the tournament, and second in the Championship Flight. This year, the victor had to defeat Gene Danyluk, Darren Leflar, Kevin Mcnee and finally Buddy Streeper to earn the tournament championship.In the first flight, sponsored by Weatherford, first place went to Tom West, who defeated Gary Decker in Saturday’s final round of 18 holes.In the Halliburton second Flight, Jeremy Clothier beat Jim McDonald in Saturday’s finals.Lakepoint Golf and Country Club General Manager Troy Knight shared his thoughts on how the tournament played out.Advertisement “I think generally it was a really good weekend, especially with the weather Wednesday and predictions for the days of the tournament. The course was really wet but the Oilmen were all very respectful of the course and it was a lot of fun…I think it goes to show a very respectful relationship we have with the Oilmen.”The Lakepoint Golf and Country Club has been a host of the tournament for over a few decades, something Knight attributes to the very strong relationship between the two organizations. In the Fort St. John Petroleum Association Championship flight, Justin Mckinnon emerged victorious following 4 rounds of match-play, defeating heavy favourite Buddy Streeper in a final 18-hole championship showdown.Mckinnon earned himself a 3-2 victory, meaning he was lead by three holes with only two left to play. His victory was really cemented along the back nine of the course, winning his final four holes en route to the Championship Flight victory.He spoke about his fellow competitors, as well as how lady luck also made an appearance throughout the weekend.- Advertisement -“I played some tough competitors this weekend, especially in the finals where I hung on to beat Buddy. I was lucky today, made a few big putts and went on to win my last four holes. I also put myself at a disadvantage starting my final round, as I showed up late, missing the first hole. Luckily I birdied hole two to pull even entering hole three.”When asked about any shots that stood out in his mind, this year’s champ talked about the events that took place on his final hole of the tournament.”I hooked my drive into the trees, but had a great recovery, hitting my five-wood 200 plus yards, then tapping in a twelve-footer for a par.”Advertisementlast_img read more


first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTS SATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division OneSt. Catherines Reserves 1 Fintown Harps AFC 2 Saints played host to neighbours Fintown Harps on a mild Winters day. The game started off with both teams creating half chances but none could test either keeper. Twenty minutes in and Saints’ striker Gary Cunningham found the net when he pounced on a rebound off the keeper to pass the ball into the Fintown net. The Saints pressed hard for the second goal but couldn’t convert numerous chances created. On thirty five minutes Aaron Thompson latched onto a through ball to slip it under The Saints’ keeper to level the score. The last ten minutes of the first half saw both teams battle hard but with very few chances created.The second half started as the first ended with both teams cancelling each other’s attacks out, very little was given away by either side. Chances were scarce in this half and it wasn’t until ninety minutes that the winner came. Shan Mc Millan latched onto a corner to head home from six yards to give the visitors all three points. Team performances both teams. Referee: Barry HunterSUNDAYBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionGweedore Celtic 2 Lifford Celtic 3Lifford kept their title hopes alive with this narrow victory at An Screaban. The game got off to a whirlwind start with two goals in the first four minutes. The home team were first off the mark on thirty seconds with good build up play involving Chris Porter, Colin Ferry and Jamie Boyle ending with Tommy Diver firing home. Three minute later Lifford had drawn level. With the home team appealing for offside Alan Gethins ran on to shoot past the keeper. Gweedore went ahead on forty minutes when a Chris Porter free-kick came off the crossbar and was tapped home by Jamie Boyle. The home side should have been two ahead twenty minutes into the second half when Colin Ferry broke through but his chip over the keeper drifted wide of the post.Gweedore were made to pay a minute later as Alan Gethins again found the net. Lifford then took the lead on seventy minutes with a fine individual goal by David Gethins. Try as they might Gweedore were unable to break down the visitor’s defence. Best for Gweedore: Tommy Diver and David McGee. Good team effort by Lifford. Referee: Joe McHugh Kilmacrennan Celtic1 Curragh Athletic 2In a match reversed to Killygordon it was Curragh who came out on top in this crucial game. Curragh took the lead after a long ball into the box landed to Shane Barclay who made no mistake. Kilmacrennan then equalised through a good finish from Eddie Doherty. In the second half it was all Kilmacrennan but after they spurned chance after chance Curragh scored a late winner to secure the 3 points. Bernard Lafferty got the important finish at the back post after a slick move down the right wing involving a number of players. Referee: Kevin LogueMilford United 2 Donegal Town 1Milford held out to a late Donegal surge to claim the three points. Milford bossed the first half and went two up after twenty minutes. Mark flood fired home a Gary Merritt corner and five minutes later Merritt himself scored a twenty yard free kick. Milford should have scored more before half time but didn’t find the net. Milford started strongly for the second half but Donegal fought hard. With five minutes to go Donegal scored and then pressed hard but the home side held firm for a good victory. Best for Milford were Ciaran Mc Ginley, Joey Cullen and Paddy Peoples. Rathmullan Celtic 3 Cranford United 3These two sides were desperate for points at different ends of the Premier Division table and that showed throughout a committed and spirited 90 minutes. Some fine goals were scored as Cranford consistently fought back against their title-chasing hosts. Both sides will be left contemplating what might have been in a game that could easily have gone either way as they were ultimately forced to settle for a point each. Rathmullan got off to the best possible start when Dara Patton turned a shot from Aaron Mc Clafferty into the bottom corner inside the first two minutes of the game. The home side struck again when Kieran Gorman rose highest to head Ryan Connolly’s corner into the bottom corner. Just when it looked as if Rathmullan would exert control on the game, Cranford immediately hit back. Seamy Friel’s trickery down the right wing saw him get free and his low cross was superbly volleyed home from 12-yards by the impressive Kyle Black. Rathmullan striker Eamonn Sheridan showed all his experience before the break to restore the home side’s two goal cushion. The veteran forward rolled a challenge from Arthur Lynch and cut in from the left wing to calmly fire low into the corner and make it 3-1 to the home side at half time.Cranford showed the sort of spirit and resolve in the second half that will help them secure their Premier Division status as they took the game to Rathmullan. The home side were forced to defend for long spells but looked to be holding strong until Black again provided the inspiration. A free kick was awarded 25-yards from goal and the forward superbly bent his shot past Ian Strain to give Cranford real hope with 25 minutes left. Arthur Lynch then planted a trademark header into the Rathmullan net from a corner to level the game up. It was just reward for the determined visitors. To their credit, Rathmullan responded with their strongest spell of the game as they desperately sought a priceless winner. Cranford however held out for a deserved share of the spoils. Best for Rathmullan on the day were Aaron Mc Clafferty and Dara Patton whilst Kyle Black and Seamy Friel were a constant threat for Cranford. Referee: Ronan FloydSt.Catherines 1 Glenea United 0St Catherines played host to Glenea in a hard fought game in Emerald Park. Both teams set out their stall early with very little being given away through possession or chances on goal. Midfield saw all the action in the first half with Glenea’s Denis Boyle and Kevin Mulhern battling it out with The Saints’ Shane O’ Rourke and Shane Molloy. This game was on tender hooks throughout and chances were far and few between, every threat was being snuffed out.Half time saw the scoreline reading honours even at nil – nil.The second half was much the same as the first with little being given away but as time ticked on both teams started to feel the pace of the game. Ryan Mc Fadden came close with a free kick for Glenea on seventy minutes and Barry Cannon had a chance for the Saints on seventy five. The only goal came on eighty minutes when veteran striker Stephen Gildea, who came on as a sub, found the Glenea net with his half volley proving unstoppable. Glenea pushed hard for the equaliser in the last ten minutes but it was the home side that claimed all three points. Team performance both teams. Referee: Paddy DuffyWatson Hire Division OneCappry Rovers 5 Dunkineely Celtic 1Cappry went away from Darney Park with three well deserved points after a convincing performance. They served notice of their intentions as early as the first minute when they forced the home keeper into a fine save from a headed effort. Cappry’s early dominance was rewarded in the fifteenth minute when Darren O’Leary rose to power home a corner. Dunkineely were finding it difficult to make any impression on a well organised Cappry defence and were restricted to long range efforts on goal. Cappry doubled their lead on 35 minutes when a defensive error left Brendan McLaughlin in for an easy finish. They continued to press forward and effectively sealed the win on 42 minutes when Mark Griffin shot home from 12 yards.Dunkineely came more into the game in the second half and created a number of good chances and forced Cappry into some last ditch defending. With Dunkineely pushing more men forward they were open to the counter attack and Cappry took advantage in the 65 minute when a quick break on the left created the opening for Brian Lafferty to fire home from the edge of the box. Dunkineely got on the score sheet on 70 minutes when Christian Mc Neilis curled home a fine effort from 20 yards. Any thoughts of a comeback were wiped out on 85 minutes when another quick break saw Cappry get their fifth when Kyle Lafferty finished from close range following a Brendan Mc Laughlin cross. Referee: Paddy MartinGweedore United 3 Keadue Rovers 0This game played in glorious conditions in Carrickboyle saw the home side claim a vital three points in this local derby. United started the game the stronger and went one up after four minutes. This goal came following good football between Paul Duggan and Michael Connolly before Ciaran Mc Fadden neatly finished past the outrushing Ben Boyle in the Keadue net to make it 1-0. The home side dominated possession creating a number of decent chances in the opening half hour. They doubled their advantage on thirty three minutes when a Shane O’ Donnell free kick was parried by Boyle in the Keadue net and Lee Ferry was on hand to finish well to make it 2-0. Keadue had a number of half chances before half time, through Ryan Green and Chris Mc Glynn, however it remained 2-0 until the interval. In the second half the home side again dominated possession and got their 3rd goal in the fifty ninty minute when Ciaran Mc Fadden again finished well. United could have extended their lead on a number of occasions however Boyle in the Keadue net was excellent with a number of good saves. Ryan Green had a chance in the 87th minute but he pulled it wide of the United net. It was a good team performance from Keadue with Paul Duggan, Eoin Doohan and Jonathan Harkin excelling for United on the day. Referee: Marty Quinn.CT Ball Division TwoBallybofey United 1 Whitestrand United 4Whitestrand left Ballybofey with their credentials as Division Two title challengers well intact. They led by three goals to nil at the interval and scored another in the second half to return a scoreline of four nil at the finish. Michael Sweeney set them on their way in the opening stages and the same man got the second before Eddie Blake got in on the scoring act to complete a positive first half display against a somewhat weakened however competitive Ballybofey United side. David White pulled a goal back for the hosts when his well struck free-kick beat the visiting custodian. James Gallagher then added his name to the scorer’s list as he notched the game’s final goal. Paul Lynch will be happy with this display from his side as the season enter it’s final third.Convoy Arsenal 6 Letterbarrow Celtic 1The game started at a frantic pace with both sides pushing for the opener. Convoy started to get a foothold in the game after about 15 minutes and created a number of chances before finally breaking the deadlock in the 22nd minute when Mickey Melaugh finished off a quick counter attack. On the half hour mark Ryan Carlin doubled the lead after some great work from Darren Harvey down the wing. Convoy kept the pressure on and got a third in the 37th minute when John Kee headed home from a corner. Convoy made the perfect start to the second half when Mickey Melaugh scored his second when he won the ball himself in the middle of the pitch, broke through a couple of tackles and knocked the ball past the keeper. This seemed to spurn Letterbarrow into a bit of life and they dug deep to try and get back into the game. Their hard work paid off in the 50th minute when they were awarded a penalty which Barry Jordan stroked home. The game flowed back and forward for the next half an hour with Convoy happy to pick Letterbarrow off on the counter attack. In the 80th minute great chasing from Ryan Carlin won the ball before Keelan Gillen rounded the keeper and unselfishly laid the ball to Mickey Melaugh who completed his hat-trick. Convoy pushed again and put the icing on the cake in the 91st minute when Keelan Gillen finished well after he was put through by Ryan Carlin. Best for Convoy was James Kee with a team effort from Letterbarrow. Referee: Martin Mc AnnenyCopany Rovers 4 Glenree United 1Copany entertained Glenree United at Killowen Park. The home side got off to a great start when they took the lead in the 2nd minute when Glenn Harron scrambled the ball home from a corner. That lead doubled in the 17th minute when Callum Gallagher put Pauric Rooney through with a great pass and Rooney found the net. Rooney scored his second in the 26th minute to make it three-nil following a cross from the left by David Graham. Rooney completed his hat -trick in the 60th minute with a fine chip over the keeper. John Doherty pulled one back for Glenree in the 89th minute. Good team performances from both sides. Best for Copany: Pauric Rooney and Glenn Harron.Drumbar United 4 Dunlewy Celtic 0Drumbar controlled this match from start to finish and must wonder how they didn’t finish with more goals. There were perfect conditions in Drumbar for this match and the home side created chance after chance. Alan Cavanagh opened the scoring on 30 minutes after a scramble in the box. After this Drumbar opened up the play and played some great football. Ray Balogun came on to score the 2nd and Enda Brogan did well to connect with the third. He should have added a second for himself but missed a great chance with a header on an open goal soon afterwards.Darragh Doogan finished off a fine performance with a run from right back and a cool finish past the Dunlewy keeper. Best for Drumbar were Alan Cavanagh and Gavin Bennett. Team performance from Dunlewey.DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUERESULTSSATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division OneSt. Catherines Reserves 1 v 2 Fintown Harps AFCGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoArranmore United P v P Glenree United ReservesCurragh Athletic Reserves P v P Gweedore United ReservesSUNDAYBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionGweedore Celtic 2 v 3 Lifford CelticKilmacrennan Celtic 1 v 2 Curragh AthleticMilford United 2 v 1 Donegal TownRathmullan Celtic 3 v 3 Cranford UnitedSt.Catherines 1 v 0 Glenea UnitedWatson Hire Division OneCappry Rovers 5 v 1 Dunkineely CelticGweedore United 3 v 0 Keadue RoversKerrykeel ’71 F.C. 3 v 0 Eany CelticCT Ball Division TwoBallybofey United 1 v 4 Whitestrand UnitedConvoy Arsenal 6 v 1 Letterbarrow CelticCopany Rovers 4 v 1 Glenree UnitedDeele Harps P v P Raphoe TownDrumbar United 4 v 0 Dunlewy CelticDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEFIXTURESSATURDAY 22-02-2014 K.O. 2p.m. (Unless Stated)Old Orchard Saturday Division OneSt. Catherines Reserves v Orchard F.C.Castlefin Celtic Reserves v Glencar CelticRamelton Mariners v Glenea United ReservesGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoGweedore United Reserves v Arranmore United (K.O. 1 p.m.)Curragh Athletic Reserves v Milford United ReservesKeadue Rovers Reserves v Donegal Town ReservesStrand Rovers v Cranford United ReservesSUNDAY 23-02-2014 K.O. 1.30p.m. (Unless Stated)Ulster Junior CupMilford United v Glengad F.C.Lifford Celtic v Gweedore CelticAileach F.C. v Gweedore UnitedUlster Junior ShieldRaphoe Town v Cockhill ColtsSUNDAY 23-02-2014 K.O. 2p.m. (Unless Stated)Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionCurragh Athletic v Glenea UnitedDonegal Town v Rathmullan CelticKilmacrennan Celtic v St. CatherinesWatson Hire Division OneCastlefin Celtic v Drumoghill F.C.Bonagee United v Lagan HarpsKeadue Rovers v Cappry RoversCT Ball Division TwoConvoy Arsenal v Copany RoversDrumbar F.C. v Whitestrand UnitedDONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES was last modified: February 16th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:Donegal Leaguelast_img read more

Hayward will require surgery and need months to recover.The Celtics were understandably shaken at halftime, and went to the locker room down 16.However, they battled back and were still leading 98-97 when James, who only played in one exhibition after spraining his ankle on Sept. 27, spun in the lane and made a layup to put Cleveland up by one. On Boston’s next possession, James cut off Marcus Smart and deflected the ball off the guard’s leg and out of bounds.James then made a crosscourt pass to a wide-open Love, who drained his 3 to give the Cavs a four-point cushion.Irving’s free throw made it 102-99, and the Celtics had two late chances but both Jaylen Brown and Irving missed late 3s.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Read Nextcenter_img LATEST STORIES Love had 15 and Derrick Rose 14 in his debut for the Cavs, who are trying to blend new faces and big egos quickly.After the final horn, James and Irving, who spent part of the summer making subtle jabs at each other following the blockbuster trade, completed their signature handshake and the All-Star point guard greeted several former teammates.He may still have a ways to go with Cleveland’s crowd, which booed him every time he touched the ball.Irving heard it from the moment he took the floor as Cleveland fans got their first chance to voice their displeasure toward him for demanding to be traded this summer despite three consecutive trips to the NBA Finals and one title.But Hayward’s injury took some of the bite out of Cleveland’s crowd, which gave the forward a roaring ovation as he was taken off the floor on a stretcher.When Hayward went down, Boston’s players huddled in prayer near their bench as a distressed James took a seat on the scorer’s table in disbelief. The injury was a reminder that there are no givens and games, seasons and careers can change in a blink.TIP-INSCeltics: Coach Brad Stevens has been impressed with Irving’s basketball acumen and how quickly he has picked up Boston’s system. “He’s spent a lot of time watching film, a lot of extra time talking about it. He has good insights,” Stevens said. “Guys like that can fit in anywhere. It’s about how do we all put our strengths together.” … Marcus Morris (sore right knee) took part in pregame drills but is out for a week or more.Cavaliers: James (28,816) passed numerous Hall of Famers while jumping to No. 7 on the career scoring list last season. He came in nearly 1,500 points behind Dirk Nowitzki at No. 6. … Although it may take some time for the Cavs to find their on-court chemistry, coach Tyronn Lue said that doesn’t change his early expectations. “We still expect to win,” he said. “We still expect to play hard and play the right way. It’s going to be a process and we understand that. As long as we play the right way, we’re focused on the right things, we’ll be fine.” UP NEXT MOST READ LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City View commentslast_img read more
