A group of amiable high school seniors passed out black and white pamphlets to attendees while nearby, school district staff passed out full color programs.Inside the pamphlets distributed by students were listed the names and achievements of nine of Port Isabel High School’s top students, though the inscription on the front of the program read, “In honor of Class of 2016 Top Ten Students.”Inside the banquet hall the mood was festive as first Dr. Lisa Garcia, superintendent of schools, addressed the crowd, and later a guest speaker regaled attendees with jokes. Near the end of the night, honor roll students from 9th through 12th grade were recognized, including the nine seniors who had greeted attendees at the door.What was noticeably absent from official conversation, however, was any mention of those students in the 2016 graduating class Top 10.Want the whole story?

COA flags Muntinlupa’s P2.931-B real property tax delinquency

first_imgSIGN UP TO DAILY NEWSLETTERCLICK HERE TO SIGN-UP Real property tax delinquencies in Muntinlupa City reaching P2.931 billion have alarmed the Commission on Audit (COA), prompting it to call for the immediate implementation of remedial measures to address the problem. While COA cited the city government for realizing P5.70 billion or 94 percent of its estimated income of P6.01 billion in 2019, the audit agency also expressed misgivings over the low collection of “non-tax revenues.”  COA disclosed that the shortfall for non-tax revenues has reached P371.37 million or 28.22 percent of the target “because measures and strategies to improve collection efficiency were not adopted.” The city government under Mayor Jaime Fresnedi also won praises from COA in its 2019 annual audit report that may have neutralized several adverse audit observations. “The city is continuously exercising good fiscal management by paying its various loans ahead of its maturity date while sustaining the needs of its constituency,” auditors said. COA also gave Muntinlupa City good reviews for social waste management, property insurance, implementation of the Special Education Fund and handling of the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Fund. However, the state audit agency lamented the failure of the city government to reduce the realty  tax delinquency total of P2.931 billion. “The city could have generated additional income from Real Property Tax (RPT) had the realty tax delinquency of P2.931 billion been collected by implementing the remedies provided for under RA No. 7160,” COA said.          During the year in audit, the city government collected P1.106 billion in realty tax, the second biggest contributor to the total collection in 2019.             “However, the balance of receivables for RPT at the beginning of the year amounting to P1,155,467,846.06  plus the recorded receivables during the year of P1,382,286,828.08 or a total of P2,537,754,674.14 showed that the actual collection of P1,106,916,432.63 is only 43.62 percent of the total receivables,” the audit report revealed. During the year, a total P2,931,628,770.95, including penalties, was reported as tax delinquency for the nine barangays in Muntinupa. The highest amount of tax delinquency was registered in Alabang at P1.035 billion. The unpaid RPT includes the joint venture lots that are part of the joint venture agreement between government as owner and Filinvest Development Corporation as beneficiary for the development of the property. To reduce delinquency among property owners, COA asked the city government to apply sanctions provided under Republic Act No. 7160 “to deter delayed payment or non-payment of taxes.” Auditors said the non-tax revenue shortfall of P371.37 million can be substantially reduced if “measures and strategies to improve collection efficiency” were observed.last_img read more

Firmino sparks five-goal Liverpool as leaders open nine-point gap

first_img(REUTERS) – A Roberto Firmino hat-trick proved the highlight of Liverpool’s 5-1 demolition of Arsenal as the Premier League leaders opened a nine-point gap over Tottenham Hotspur, who lost 3-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Wembley.With third-placed Manchester City playing Southampton today, Liverpool capped an astonishing month with their ninth successive league victory to leave manager Juergen Klopp conceding that he “had nothing to moan about”.Struggling Cardiff City and Fulham bolstered their survival chances with added-time goals in 1-0 wins at Leicester City and home to Huddersfield Town respectively.Brighton & Hove Albion beat Everton by the same score and Watford equalised late to draw 1-1 with Newcastle United.Anfield has become such a fortress that even the unexpected setback of Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ early goal did not knock Liverpool off their stride.Within minutes, Brazilian Firmino hit them with a scoring one-two – his second goal a brilliant solo effort – with a further strike from Sadio Mane and a penalty from Mohamed Salah following before halftime.Firmino rounded off the scoring with another spot kick as Liverpool, who next travel to Manchester City on Thursday, cruised home to leave no one in doubt as to their title credentials.“(Manchester City) is a huge one,” said Liverpool full back Andy Robertson.“But in December we’ve knocked the games off one by one and we’ve now got a healthy lead. We look forward to it.”Tottenham’s day could hardly have started better with England’s Harry Kane marking his award of an MBE for services to sport in the New Year Honours list with a stunning left-foot strike that looked likely to kick off another goalfest.But the inconsistent visitors from the Midlands refused to roll over and hit the home side with three goals in 18 second-half minutes through Wily Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa as Wembley was silenced, along with talk of Tottenham’s title challenge.“We have achieved something very special in getting to the Premier League and it has been a very special year,” said delighted Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo.“We had a lot of belief after the equaliser, I would have said a draw was a good result, but I cannot control the emotions of the boys if they see space in front of them.”MITROVIC WINNER The drama came even later at Fulham where Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the winner in stoppage time to frustrate their relegation rivals Huddersfield.Fulham’s joy was all the greater because they had earlier missed a penalty amid extraordinary scenes after their players tried to take the ball off Aboubakar Kamara as he stepped up to take the spot kick.His team mates wanted Mitrovic to take the penalty but Kamara refused, disobeying the orders of Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri, only to look deeply embarrassed seconds later when his effort was saved by Jonas Lossl.Ranieri was not amused: “I said to Aboubakar Kamara to leave the ball to Aleksandar Mitrovic, he is the man who shoots the penalties. It is unbelievable, he did not respect me, the club, the team and crowd. I spoke with him, it is not right.“I want to kill him; that is normal when one man takes a ball, only because he scored the last penalty (against Manchester United). It should be Mitrovic, that is it.”At Leicester, Cardiff’s Neil Etheridge saved James Maddison’s 75th minute penalty to set up a victory secured by Victor Camarasa’s stunning stoppage time strike for the Welsh side, who are now four points above the drop zone.Brighton finish the year comfortably in mid-table after Juergen Locadia’s second-half goal was enough to see off Everton.At Vicarage Road, the sought-after substitute Abdoulaye Doucoure scored Watford’s equalizer before then wasting a late chance. as the home side almost secured a comeback win against Newcastle.last_img read more

Exclusive: Berbatov with a strong comment on the historic match for…

first_imgBulgarian football legend Dimitar Berbatov gave an exclusive interview to Gong.bg, in which he commented on the draw in the Europa League. A little earlier today, fate ordered in a match of the second qualifying round of the tournament Lokomotiv Plovdiv to meet at “Lauta” not anyone, but the English grand Tottenham, and from Gong.bg we looked for perhaps the most suitable interlocutor on the topic.Hello, Mr. Berbatov. In the end, fate determined Jose Mourinho and company to come to their feet in Plovdiv, what are your thoughts after the draw?– This is good news for Bulgarian football in general, especially for Lokomotiv Plovdiv, because they will have the opportunity to compete with a very good European team. We know what kind of players there are, we know who is the coach of Tottenham, so it will be a difficult test for Lokomotiv Plovdiv. Tottenham is the favorite, it’s clear, but we all love surprises, so you can get one in this case, you know.The English are preparing for an expressive victory, and the Bulgarians are happy to meet a team of this caliber. How big do you think is the gap between domestic and foreign football?– The gap is there and it is big, we all know. Tottenham fans are joking because they come to Bulgaria and think it will be easy for them, but in fact it will not be so. At least I hope that the boys of Lokomotiv Plovdiv will make Tottenham’s life difficult, so that watching the match will be interesting to me. Not to be a one-sided match in which one attacks, the other defends. Lokomotiv Plovdiv has nothing to lose, and who knows, someone may deserve a surprising transfer abroad in this way. If you show a good game, they will see you.However, everything is decided in one meeting, so miracles are not excluded. Do you think Lokomotiv Plovdiv is capable of a small football miracle?– Why not? Of course, Tottenham are clear favorites in the match and there will probably be winners in the end, but one should never stop hoping. I wish success to Lokomotiv Plovdiv. I will watch the match, it will be difficult for them, especially without an audience. This is the biggest disadvantage in this case. This reduced the chance they had if there was an audience, as it would be an interesting experience for everyone there. But this is football, let’s not forget. No matter how minimal the chances are, there are some. And while there are them, one must believe! Which side will you watch the match, which team will you support?“My past with Tottenham is there and it can’t be erased.” In my time, they have won the only trophy so far. I have said many times that it is high time they won something. Whatever. Their goal is to win this tournament. I follow them and wish them success. On the other hand, as a Bulgarian, I keep my fingers crossed for the Bulgarian teams to perform well, so I will watch and enjoy. I hope they have prepared the field in perfect condition – so that the ball can go, not bounce. Let’s hope we witness a good match and see what will happen in the end, we keep our fingers crossed. Maybe Loko Plovdiv will surprise everyone, no matter how small the probability. Follow us anywhere and anytime with the mobile application of Gong.bg.

Waite waltzes home at Burapha

first_imgWith most of the players playing here for the first time the scores were quite good, well apart from Sel who scored a magnificent 16 point total.  Bob Van Mol took line honours on the day with 35 points ahead of Owen Walkley in second with 32 and third on a count back over Eng was Capt Bob with 31.  There were no ‘2’s.Wednesday, August 20, Green Valley – StablefordWe had six groups playing at Green Valley and looking forward to beating the rain, but alas it was not to be and were forced to make a stopover for a beer at John and Geoff’s drinks stop for about half an hour then out we went to finish the round.We had six ladies playing and as usual they put up a good showing; according to William the two girls who played alongside him and John Aylott were magic around the greens. There were a couple of good scores but I think the rain chased a few players away and we had a few NRs.First place went to Owen Walkley with a fine 38 points, second to Nichawan Khiaophuang with 36, third to Rosco Langoulant on 33 and fourth went to Bill Marsden with 32.There were three ‘2’s coming from Wayne Cotterell, Nichawan Khiaophuang (Sa) and Owen Walkley.Friday, August 22, Burapha – StablefordToday we were at Burapha, which will now become our venue for the first and second Friday of each month.  The course is in great condition and the friendly staff see to your needs with a generous smile.Playing A and B courses, as the C has just been renovated and the greens are not up to scratch as yet, we were joined by Robert Cook from the Bendigo Golf Club on a reconnaissance for the club’s next golfing holiday.  Although he played with borrowed clubs, Robert did acquit himself very well and even took a couple of shillings off Capt Bob.The scores were very good and although we did play from the white tees the course was still long enough at 6,200 yards.  Coming in third was Greig Ritchie with 39 points, his best round for a while but being beaten on count back by his good friend David Hausman also on 39.  Taking the top spot was Phil Waite with an amazing 42 points, well done mate!There were three ‘2’s today coming from Rosco, Phil Waite and Greig Ritchie.Note:  The Billabong Golf bar is situated just off Siam Country Club Road looking straight down Lake Mabprachan.  Call Bob on 082 204 3411 if you are looking for a game. PSC golf from The Billabong Golf BarTuesday, August 19, Siam Waterside – StablefordSiam Waterside was the venue for today and being a Sports Day it was a very good deal.  Everyone enjoyed themselves on this wonderful golf course, well almost everyone as Sel had a day he would rather forget; if he wasn’t in the deep rough he managed to make the bunker, and losing 10 golf balls in one round must set a record I’m sure. The Captain got the tee time mixed up but we got away early anyway for a four hour round, not bad for a Sports Day.  A big thank you for our organizer today Rosco taking time out from his duties at the temple and for setting up the next trip there on the 30th September, which will be the last time at Sports Day rates.Friday’s top three: David Hausman, Greig Ritchie and Phil Waite.last_img read more

Women sues Inglewood police over alleged rape

first_imgBy The Associated Press A Florida woman who claims she was raped by an Inglewood police officer sued department officials, contending the department’s policies created an “unrestrained, undisciplined and out of control” atmosphere, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in federal court, contends that the 23-year-old woman was in town to visit relatives on Dec. 15 when she was stopped by two officers while walking to a fast-food restaurant. The officers accused her of being a prostitute and followed her back to her motel, where according to the suit, one officer insisted that she take him to her room and forced her to have sex. No criminal charges have been filed in the case but the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office was investigating her claims. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jose Mourinho explains why Bastian Schweinsteiger has returned to training

first_imgJose Mourinho has explained the recalling of Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester United first-team training as a ‘human’ decision.The German midfielder has not been part of Mourinho’s plans since the Portuguese’s appointment as head coach over the summer, and the club even wrote him off as an asset in their latest published accounts – stating he was ‘a player no longer considered to be a member of the first team playing squad’.And this still rings true, even though he is back working with Mourinho and the senior players in training at United’s Aon Training Complex in Carrington, having originally been banished to work with only the youth and reserve squads.Mourinho, speaking ahead of the Red Devils’ Europa League clash against Fenerbahce, revealed he has brought Schweinsteiger back into the fold to make up the numbers in training – a ‘human’ decision for a player who has been nothing but a professional despite being cast out.His return also allows him to work his way up to full fitness, with Mourinho making it clear this is to ensure the German is ready to play first-team football – should he leave Old Trafford in the January transfer window.“It is a decision based on the fact that we are in a period in the season where it is really difficult to train with everybody together,” Mourinho said.“The tactical work I like to do with 20 or 21 players, so to have 23 or 24 together at the same time, that situation doesn’t happen anymore because in this moment, the next day after we play, the players who played, they train in a separate group and do a specific recovering session.“So instead of 23 or 24, it becomes 13 or 14, and with injuries sometime 10 or 11.“Many times we go to the academy to bring in some young boys to have a group with the perfect numbers.“Looking at Bastian and the way he was working professionally, every day with the fitness coach, we think it is a human decision and a professional decision to bring him back to the team and he will be much better prepared and in much better condition in case his future decision is to leave the club. He will be much better prepared to go direct to competition.”Despite the hints that Schweinsteiger’s recall is not a route back into competitive action for the 32-year-old, Mourinho did admit the German could become an ‘option’ should United be hit hard by injuries in the coming months.The manager added: “If he stays with us, he becomes one more option. In this moment we have no problems in midfield, like we have in defence, but if one day we have problems in midfield, he will be one more option for us.“It is a human decision based on training numbers and methods, but also a decision that can be positive for the group. It is a good decision for us and for him.” 1 Bastian Schweinsteiger has been recalled to Manchester United first-team training last_img read more

GSMA announces 2016 aid-to-park funding details

first_imgGreat Smoky Mountains Association had its best year ever for both sales and membership income in 2016, Executive Director Laurel Rematore reported this week, allowing the association to contribute more than $2 million in support to Great Smoky Mountains National Park last year.“We continued our focus on retail sales, publications and customized product development, and membership devel­opment, throughout the year,” she said. “And just when we thought we’d end the year with no major events to mention – other than record-setting visitation – we experienced the late November wildfires that shut down the park for several days and destroyed nearly 2,500 structures in Gatlinburg.”GSMA immediately responded to the tragedy and successfully raised more than $200,000 from GSMA members and others to assist park employees, volunteers, and affiliates who had lost their homes, she continued.Despite the wildfires, some 11,312,785 people visited the Smokies in 2016, which was likely influenced by low fuel prices, an improving economy, and the “Find Your Park” multimedia campaign to mark the NPS Centennial. As operator of the park’s visitor center stores, GSMA, in turn, also experienced a record-setting sales year.GSMA’s aid-to-park funding in 2016 was $2,005,787, she said, capping another strong year of support.
