DOTr, LTO asked to reconsider ban on motorcycle ‘backride’

first_imgHowever, this move faced a deluge of public outcry, especially on social media. Antiqueño families bought motorcycles to lessen their commuting expenses. SAN JOSE, Antique – Gov. Rhodora Cadiao will personally appeal to the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Land and Transportation Office to allow at least one backrider for each motorcycle in this province. According to the governor, she felt the hardship of her kasimanwas. “I have heard their sentiments. The guidelines on angkas is not applicable in our province. Motorcycle is the main mode of transportation of many Antiqueños,” said Cadiao. She added: “Nagahulid gani ang mag-asawa, so, why burden them with the issue of social distancing when riding their motorcycle?” Cadiao. PIO BACOLOD Members of the Antique Inter Agency Task Force on coronavirus disease 2019 informed the governor yesterday that she needs to revise the provisions on her Executive Order 49 on motorcycle pillion riding as DOTr has released contrasting guidelines. Governor Cadiao’s EO 49 allows one backrider for each motorcycle, provided that they are immediate family members living in the same household and they wear helmets and facemasks. But since Cadiao’s appeal remains pending, she reminded the Antiqueños to abide with DOTr’s guidelines.The governor’s move was highly appreciated by residents./PNlast_img read more

Teen Murder Suspect Could Be Tried As Adult

first_imgHershman was found deceased in her West Ellis Street Home on December 30A hearing was held Wednesday to determine if a teen accused of murdering a Milan woman should be tried as an adult.The 16-year-old teen was allegedly involved in the shooting of 68-year-old Nancy Hershman, of Milan, during a break-in at Hershman’s home on December 30.Three individuals testified and offered evidence of whether the teen should remain in the juvenile court system or be waived to adult court.A clinical psychologist and a psychiatrist presented testimony on their assessment of the mental condition of the teenager. According to the Versailles Republican, both professionals recommended the defendant remain in the juvenile system as it offers a better chance for rehabilitation.An officer from a juvenile detention center in Muncie was called to the stand. The officer recounted numerous violations the teen has been cited for while housed there. The Versailles Republican says the teen was eventually sent to the Department of Corrections due to poor behavior.Prosecutors argue that if the teen was age 16 at the time of the alleged crime, he would automatically be tried as an adult. The teen turned 16 on December 31, one day after Hershman was killed.The defendant and the state now have ten days to submit their Findings of Fact and Conclusion to Ripley County Judge Carl Taul. The judge will then decide whether the 16-year-old should be waived to adult court, and if so, the identity of the teen boy will be released.The teen, along with Sean Nichols, 15, and Allison Moore, 22, drove from Ohio to Ripley County on December 29. They first broke into the home of a Cross Plains man and allegedly robbed him.In the early morning hours of December 30, police say they traveled to Milan and broke into Hershman’s home. Nancy Hershman was fatally shot during the alleged break-in.In March, the case against Sean Nichols was waived into adult court by Ripley County Judge Carl Taul.last_img read more

Tennis News Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic Enter Paris Open Masters Quarterfinal

first_imgParis: Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic continued their battle for the year-end world number one ranking as both players reached the Paris Masters quarter-finals with wins over Stan Wawrinka and Kyle Edmund respectively. The 33-year-old Nadal is already guaranteed to usurp Djokovic at the rankings summit next week, but winning a maiden Bercy title would also secure the year-end top spot before next month’s ATP Tour Finals in London. He produced an impressive display on Thursday to take his career head-to-head record against three-time Grand Slam champion Wawrinka to 19-3 with a clinical 6-4, 6-4 victory. Djokovic had earlier booked his last-eight place with a 7-6 (9/7), 6-1 win over Britain’s Edmund.  Nadal has never won the Paris Masters or the ATP Finals and only two of his 84 titles have come indoors.”That’s the beautiful thing about this sport, (to) have the capacity to adapt yourself to the different conditions,” said the 12-time French Open winner, who called the doctor onto the court in the second set to help deal with a stomach problem. Nadal will face 2008 champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarter-finals after the French wildcard saved two match points to edge out Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (8/6).  “I have a match against a player that is playing well,” said Nadal. “I need to do a lot of things well, but I hope to be ready to make that happen.”  Nadal took the first set thanks to a single break of serve in game three, saving break points in the second and eighth games himself before serving it out in style. Wawrinka’s backhand started to fire at the start of the second set, but Nadal kept the Swiss at bay, helped by one incredible forehand winner to direct a smash from his opponent into the corner of the court. The 19-time Grand Slam champion saw off Wawrinka’s challenge with a break to lead 5-4 in the second set and served out the match to make it his seventh Paris Masters quarter-final in as many appearances.  Djokovic to face Tsitsipas  Top seed Djokovic needed seven set points in the first set before beating Edmund with relative comfort by racing through the second to make his eighth quarter-final in the tournament. “I was feeling energy-wise better and felt more alert, just more strength, more energy, more speed,” said the 32-year-old, who has been struggling with illness this week. The 16-time Grand Slam title-winner is chasing a record-extending fifth Bercy crown and will next face world number seven Stefanos Tsitsipas, who beat Alex de Minaur 6-3, 6-4.  The 21-year-old Tsitsipas leads his head-to-head with Djokovic 2-1, after victories at the Shanghai Masters earlier this month and the 2018 Canadian Open.”He (Tsitsipas) is one of the best players in the world,” said Djokovic. “He’s already (an) established player.” Djokovic is hoping to tie Pete Sampras’ record of finishing six years as the world’s best player, while Nadal is looking to achieve the feat for a fifth time.  Dimitrov downs Thiem  Former world number three Grigor Dimitrov produced a fantastic performance to beat fifth seed Dominic Thiem 6-3, 6-2 and reach the last eight in Paris for the first time.Dimitrov was the world number 78 heading into the US Open, but reached the semi-finals and is now ranked 27th. The 28-year-old will take on Cristian Garin for a semi-final spot, after the unseeded Chilean saved three match points in a deciding-set tie-break to end the run of French qualifier Jeremy Chardy with a 6-7 (4/7), 6-4, 7-6 (8/6) success.  Also Read | Roger Federer Confirms Participation In French Open, Tokyo Olympics 2020Greek star Tsitsipas, who has reached at least the semis in each of his last three tournaments, eased past De Minaur, ending the Australian’s hopes of qualifying for the Tour Finals. Gael Monfils, who is chasing a spot at the ATP Finals, takes on Moldova’s Radu Albot in Thursday’s final match, with the winner to face Denis Shapovalov, after the Canadian youngster beat sixth seed Alexander Zverev for the first time — 6-2, 5-7, 6-2.

Windies slide as Black Caps make inroads

first_imgWELLINGTON, New Zealand, (CMC) – West Indies’ bid to save the opening Test against New Zealand hit a snag when they lost three wickets in the morning session on the penultimate day at the Basin Reserve today.At the break, the Caribbean side were 286 for five, still requiring a further 100 runs to avoid an innings defeat.Their hopes rested on debutant Sunil Ambris who was unbeaten on 18 and wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, not out on three.Resuming on 214 for two, the Windies lost the key wicket of opener Kraigg Brathwaite for 91, Shai Hope for 37 and Roston Chase, 18.The right-handed Brathwaite added just 12 to his overnight 79 before misjudging the length of one from left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner, playing back and falling lbw on review.Hope, on 24 at the start, followed in the fourth over following the first drinks break when he was caught at gully by captain Kane Williamson off left-arm seamer Trent Boult, off one that lifted.And Chase struck three fours in a 38-ball innings before chopping on a cut at a wide ball from seamer Matt Henry four overs later to leave the Windies on 273 for five.Ambris, who made a first ball ‘duck’ in the first innings has so far stroked two fours and a six off 31 deliveries.Henry has been the best bowler with three for 57.last_img read more

The USC-UCLA rivalry still means so much

first_imgWhen USC and UCLA meet in any sport, there tends to be a lot on the line. There might be a conference title at stake. Other times, postseason hopes are at stake. Ultimately, the rivalry is always for city bragging rights, regardless of record or standing.But this year, neither team has a whole lot to brag about. The Trojans have six wins and are last in the Pac-12. Meanwhile, the Bruins, who began the season in the top 25, have stumbled to a 15-11 record. Unless either team makes an incredible run and somehow wins the conference tournament, these teams will be left home on Selection Sunday when March Madness comes around.So when the Trojans and the Bruins battled at the Sports Arena Wednesday night, it hardly seemed like a game that would inspire much emotion. One year of subpar basketball, however, should not turn fans away from the crosstown rivalry. Many forget that this rivalry has seen its share of great moments.Though football memories tend to dominate, such as O.J. Simpson running through the entire UCLA defense in the 1960s, the hardwood has given us plenty of reasons to keep an eye on the USC-UCLA rivalry after the fall season ends:—Beginning in 1932, USC beat the Bruins for 11 straight years. Famous UCLA coach John Wooden beat the Trojans 61 times during his time in Westwood. The overall record in the rivalry? UCLA leads, but not by as much as you might think: 130-104.In 1970, the Trojans were the top-ranked team in the country. UCLA, though, beat USC twice in the season, which were USC’s only losses of the season. UCLA won the conference, and the Trojans, despite a 24-2 record, were left out of the NCAA Tournament.—Lew Alcindor — later known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — and the UCLA team beat the Trojans in double overtime in 1968. In that season, Alcindor averaged 26.2 points and 16.5 rebounds per game.—In 1985, the Trojans and Bruins played at the Sports Arena with the conference title on the line. The Trojans came out victorious in quadruple overtime. That season, the Trojans went to the NCAA tournament but the Bruins did not.—Let’s not forget the stars who have played in this rivalry. For UCLA, you have centers Lew Alcindor and Bill Walton, guard Marques Johnson, forward Sidney Wicks, guard Arron Afflalo, forward Kevin Love, guards Walt Hazzard and Reggie Miller, among many others. The Trojans have a pretty solid list too, including guard DeMar DeRozen, forward Taj Gibson, guard O.J. Mayo, guard Paul Westphal and guard Nick Young.—The latest memorable game against the two schools took place in 2008, when Mayo and Love led the Trojans and the Bruins, respectively. The teams met for a rare third time in the Pac-10 tournament. The Bruins won the game by three points with Love, the first team All-American and future fifth overall draft pick. Mayo, meanwhile, went third overall in the same draft.Sure, the games haven’t received the hype that surrounds football games, mainly because USC has never won a national title in basketball. There have been, however, great moments and great players that have played in this rivalry. Maybe it’s not North Carolina vs. Duke, but it’s as heated as it gets when the Trojans and Bruins play.Many of these players know each other from Amateur Athletic Union ball and high school. The relationships between players can go back years, and that makes games such as those that we saw last night even better.There might not be much at stake for these players in terms of wins and losses in this latest edition of the series, but pride is something equally as important that the Bruins and Trojans always play for, whether the fans acknowledge it or not.Whether it’s Lew Alcindor or Lazeric Jones for UCLA or Brian Scalebrine or Maurice Jones suiting up for the Trojans, we as fans need to bask in this rivalry, whether or not both teams are relevant on the national stage. We have had incredible moments, and who knows, maybe last night’s game provided something fans will remember for a lifetime. Only time will tell. “Goal Line Stand” runs Thursdays.
