Harper Lee letters offer candid takes on religion, family

NEW YORK (AP) --- Around the same time "To Kill a Mockingbird" made Harper Lee a best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner, she was still fighting for creative control. "I must say it's increasingly difficult for magazine articles to be written any other way than a magazine editor standing over your shoulder telling you what to write. You know how well that sets with me," the Monroeville, Alabama, native wrote to her New York friend Harold Caufield (affectionately referred to as "Darling Aitch"). The 1961 letter --- the year after the book was published --- told of Esquire's turning down a piece she had been asked to write.

(Kung) maibibigay sa akin ang bola, papatayin ko -- Jaja Santiago

Jaja Santiago was put on a leash with National University trailing defending two-time champion De La Salle University by four points in the closing stretch of the fifth set. Sitting on the bench after rotating at the back row, the graduating hitter could only just pray for her teammates to hold the fort.    “Siyempre kinakabahan ako pero kino-compose ko pa rin ang sarili ko na hindi, kahit wala ako sa loob, makukuha namin ito,” said Santiago. “Kung maabot ako sa unahan, ibibigay ko ang 100-plus percent ko para sa team.” The Lady Spikers made a grave mistake of giving NU a chance to get the 6-foot-5 Santiago back on court. Once inside, Santiago erupted with crucial kills to carry the Lady Bulldogs to a 26-24, 19-25, 22-25, 25-17, 16-14, win Sunday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Santiago submitted 27 points anchored on a crisp 20-of-43 attacking clip but heroics down the stretch highlighted her performance that helped the Lady Bulldogs preserve their pristine 4-0 win-loss record.   NU trailed DLSU, 8-12, in the fifth set with Santiago substituted to the bench. Aiko Urdas’ kill put Santiago back on the floor and the hitter worked her magic to shock DLSU. Santiago pounded a kill to put NU at match point, 14-13. Kim Kianna Dy answered with a hit before Santiago gave the Lady Bulldogs their second match point off a thunderous spike.     Urdas sealed the morale-boosting win with a service ace. Asked if she took it to herself to provide the much-needed points, Santiago responded with authority.   “(Kung) mabibigay sa akin 'yung bola, papatayin at papatayin ko. Walang hesitation,” she said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles        .....»»

Palace backs move vs Aquino on Mamasapano

Former President Benigno Aquino III should be held accountable for the botched Mamasapano operation in 2015, Malacaang said on Friday as it backed the Office of the Solicitor General's move to pursue criminal cases against the former commander in chief.   Solicitor General Jose Calida has asked the Supreme Court to order the Ombudsman to file cases of reckless imprudence resulting in homicide against Aquino for the death of 44 Special Action Force (SAF) commandos in the operation to kill Malaysian terrorist Zulkifli bin Hir, alias Marwan.   "There ought to be accountability for those responsible for the SAF 44 debacle," presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said...Keep on reading: Palace backs move vs Aquino on Mamasapano.....»»

Gunmen kill 14 churchgoers in Nigeria shooting

WARRI, Nigeria --- Gunmen killed at least 14 churchgoers returning from a midnight service on Monday in Nigeria's Rivers State, a police source told AFP, the latest violence to hit the oil-rich region. "The gunmen opened fire on a set of worshippers at about 12:30 am on Monday," said Ugochi Olugbo, a relative of one of the victims who were attending a New Year's Eve service. The shooting took place in the town of Omoku about 90 kilometers (56 miles) from the southern oil hub of Port Harcourt.

Perez dedicates Grand Prix win, MVP award to deceased brother

F2 Logistics ace setter Kim Fajardo saw Venezuelan import Maria Jose Perez open on the left side. The reinforcement soared and smashed a thunderous kill. Petron’s Mika Reyes and Rhea Dimaculangan went up simultaneously to erect a wall but came a bit too late. American import Hillary Hurley was the Blaze Spikers’ last line of defense but Perez’s missile slipped off her hands as the Cargo Movers celebrated their impressive come-from-behind series win to conquer the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix in the deciding Game 3 Saturday at the MOA Arena. Perez joined her team in celebration. She’s now a champion and was named Conference Most Valuable Player. Perez did her best to win for the team. This despite a searing pain in her heart brought by a sad news she received the day before from halfway across the world. Her older brother, Daniel, passed away Friday after a bout with cancer.         Knowing that they needed to stay focused on the game, Perez chose to keep the news from her teammates. Confiding only to skipper Cha Cruz, who then told head coach Ramil De Jesus.  “Very professional ni Maria kasi kakamatay lang ng oldest brother niya kahapon dahil sa cancer," said De Jesus during the post-game interview after F2 Logistics captured the crown in a 25-20, 25-19, 20-25, 25-18, win over the Blaze Spikers that completed their comeback from a 0-1 series deficit.         “Sobrang saludo ako, di niya sinasabi sa team, di ko nga alam pano nya nadadala,” De Jesus said. “Kasi di umiiyak, di malungkot, di nadala sa performance. Saludo talaga ako sa kanya.” The 2008 Beijing Olympian scored 24 points all from kills, averaging 21 markers in the Finals. “I didn’t think about my loss I know I have a big responsibility with my team,” said Perez, a woman of strength and high professionalism. “I didn’t share it with my team. I just smiled and tried to be strong because I know we had this opportunity to win this game.” “I don’t want my teammates to be saddened with my loss,” she added.  Perez’s voice cracked and held her tears back during the interview as she dedicated the win and MVP to her brother. “I was thinking about that,” she said. “I know that’s the only that will make my family happy.” Perez will return to Venezuela before flying to Utah to play in another tournament. Asked if she’ll return next year, Perez said that she wants another run with the Cargo Movers. “We have talked about it (going back to F2). I really want (to come back) but I haven't talked to the management,” said Perez. “I think after this we will decide and we will see my final decision.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Colts celebrate Manning's return with 26-23 win over 49ers

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — After blowing a 14-point lead in the final eight minutes of regulation and surviving an interception in scoring position in overtime, Marlon Mack's 35-yard run set up Adam Vinatieri for a 51-yard field goal as the Indianapolis Colts beat the San Francisco 49ers 26-23 on Sunday. Vinatieri made four field goals to move into second on the NFL's career list, one ahead of Gary Anderson (538). Mack and Jacoby Brissett each scored on TD runs for the Colts (2-3), who have won both games against winless teams. San Francisco (0-5) is one of three teams that still has not won this season. The Browns and Giants are the others. In many ways, the mistake-prone game became a sideshow for what happened around it. While many showed up to thank Manning, who played his final home game in Indy on Jan. 8, 2011, most didn't anticipate becoming part of another political statement. Vice President Mike Pence, the former Indiana governor, left shortly after about a dozen San Francisco players dropped to their knees for the national anthem. The Colts locked arms, but none took a knee. Some reports indicated Pence's walkout was planned. President Donald Trump later tweeted: 'I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.' And Peyton Manning was inducted into the Colts' Ring of Honor. strong>PACKERS 35, COWBOYS 31 /strong> ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Aaron Rodgers threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams with 11 seconds remaining, lifting Green Bay over the Dallas Cowboys in another thriller nine months after the Packers' divisional playoff win on the same field. Rodgers capped a 75-yard drive in just 1:02, going toward the same end zone as in the playoff game. Adams, active 10 days after leaving the field on a stretcher on a helmet-to-helmet hit that resulted in a suspension for Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan, had seven catches for 66 yards and two touchdowns. Dak Prescott had given Cowboys the lead on an 11-yard touchdown run with 1:13 remaining to cap a 17-play drive that lasted almost nine minutes. Dallas (2-3) has already matched the number of losses from the magical rookie season for Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott. The Packers (4-1) had gone ahead earlier on Damarius Randall's 21-yard interception return for a touchdown, the third of five lead changes in the fourth quarter. Green Bay rallied from 15 points down in the first half. Aaron Jones had 19 carries for 125 yards and a TD, becoming the first Green Bay running back with 100 yards in his first start as a rookie since Samkon Gado in 2005. Elliott finished with 116 yards on 29 carries. Prescott was 25 of 36 for 251 yards and three first-half touchdowns, two to Cole Beasley and one to Dez Bryant. Rodgers was 19 of 29 for 221 yards and three touchdowns and set up the winning score with an 18-yard scramble. strong>CHARGERS 27, GIANTS 22 /strong> EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (AP) — Philip Rivers threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Melvin Gordon with 2:58 to play and the Chargers rallied to beat the Giants in a game worthy of two teams that started the season 0-4. The touchdown pass was Rivers' third of the game and came three plays after Kyle Emanuel had a sack, forced fumble and recovery against Eli Manning at the Giants 11-yard line. It also came four plays after Odell Beckham Jr. hurt an ankle and become the fourth Giants receiver knocked out of the game. Rivers also hit Gordon on a 6-yard TD pass in the second quarter and had a 25-yarder to tight end Hunter Henry in the third as the Chargers ended a nine-game losing streak dating to late November. Manning had given the Giants a 22-17 lead early in the fourth quarter with a 48-yard TD pass to a wide-open Beckham. New York missed the 2-point conversion attempt after being hit with a delay of game penalty. Manning, who was sacked five times, also threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to backup Roger Lewis Jr. in the third quarter. Orleans Darkwa scored on a 23-yard run and the Giants got a safety in scoring their first first-quarter points this season. strong>JAGUARS 31, STEELERS 9 /strong> PITTSBURGH (AP) — Telvin Smith and Barry Church returned a pair of Ben Roethlisberger's interceptions for touchdowns and Jacksonville stunned Pittsburgh. Jacksonville (3-2) beat the Steelers for the first time in a decade by relying heavily on the NFL's top-ranked pass defense. The Jaguars picked off Roethlisberger five times in all and sacked him twice. Rookie Leonard Fournette ran for 181 yards and two touchdowns for the Jaguars, who are over .500 after five games for the first time since 2010 and have already matched their victory total from 2016. Roethlisberger completed 33 of 55 for 312 yards and his career-high five interceptions, the most by a Pittsburgh quarterback since Mark Malone threw five against Cleveland in 1987. A week after a sideline outburst generated headlines and drew Roethlisberger's ire, wide receiver Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 157 yards for Pittsburgh (3-2). Brown was also the intended receiver on a pair of third-quarter passes the opportunistic Jaguars turned into points. The Steelers led 9-7 when Roethlisberger looked left for Brown. Jacksonville defensive lineman Abry Jones tipped it into the hands of Smith, who chugged 28 yards to put Jacksonville in front with 6:38 left in the period. The Jaguars defense struck again on Pittsburgh's next series. Roethlisberger tried to hit Brown down the sideline. Jalen Ramsey deflected it and Church came down with it. A 51-yard sprint later and Jacksonville had turned a two-point deficit into an 11-point lead without taking an offensive snap. strong>EAGLES 34, CARDINALS 7 /strong> PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz threw a career-best four touchdown passes and the Eagles continued their impressive start. Wentz tossed three scoring passes in the first quarter, including 59 yards to Torrey Smith, 11 yards to Zach Ertz and 15 yards to Trey Burton. He connected with Nelson Agholor for a 72-yard TD in the third quarter that left six-time Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson shouting on the sideline. The Eagles (4-1) have won three straight games. Carson Palmer and Arizona's one-dimensional offense were held to 279 yards. The Cardinals (2-3) have alternated losses and wins since Week 1. Wentz torched a secondary that features Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu, finishing 21 of 30 for 304 yards. Peterson held Alshon Jeffery to three catches for 31 yards, but Wentz spread the ball around. strong>DOLPHINS 16, TITANS 10 /strong> MIAMI GARDENS, Florida (AP) — Jay Cutler finally silenced the boobirds with a fourth-quarter touchdown pass, and the Dolphins overcame another dismal offensive showing. The jeers started in the first quarter of the Dolphins' home debut, and soon the crowd was chanting for backup quarterback Matt Moore. But coach Adam Gase stuck with Cutler, who capped a 58-yard drive with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry for the tiebreaking score. The Titans (2-3) played without quarterback Marcus Mariota, who was inactive because of a left hamstring injury suffered a week ago. Replacement Matt Cassel went 21 for 32 for 141 yards and was sacked six times. Miami (2-2) came in ranked last in the NFL in points and yards per game, and struggled against a Titans team that allowed 57 points against Houston a week ago. strong>PANTHERS 27, LIONS 24 /strong> DETROIT (AP) — Cam Newton showed he was very focused on football, throwing three touchdowns to help the Panthers build a lead big enough to hold off the Lions. The Panthers (4-1) scored 24 straight points after trailing 10-3 early in the second quarter. Detroit rallied, but could not stop Newton on his last drive to get the ball back. Newton came under fire for making sexist comments to a female reporter this week. He apologized after losing an endorsement deal and getting criticized by the NFL. He was 26 of 33 for a season-high 335 yards. On perhaps the game's key play, he converted a third-and-19 from the Carolina 24 with a sharp, 17-yard pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 2:00 left while clinging to a three-point lead against a team out of timeouts. Newton threw a 6-yard TD pass to rookie Christian McCaffrey to pull the Panthers into a 10-10 tie early in the second quarter and a 10-yard pass to Devin Funchess for a tiebreaking score with 48 seconds left in the first half. With a perfectly lofted 31-yard pass to Benjamin, the 2015 NFL MVP put Carolina up 24-10 early in the third. Detroit (3-2) struggled to move the ball in the air and on the ground until late in the game. strong>BENGALS 20, BILLS 16 /strong> CINCINNATI (AP) — A.J. Green had a hand in three turnovers that kept it close, but the receiver also pulled off a 77-yard touchdown and another long catch that set up a score. After losing their first three games, the Bengals (2-3) have salvaged their season by getting the ball to their playmakers at decisive moments. Green's 47-yard catch set up a 5-yard touchdown run by Joe Mixon that put Cincinnati ahead to stay in the fourth quarter. The Bills (3-2) got off to an encouraging start by relying heavily on kicker Stephen Hauschka and a defense that led the league, allowing only 13.5 points per game in the first four. The combination wasn't enough this time. Buffalo's depleted offense couldn't take advantage of Cincinnati's three turnovers. Tyrod Taylor's off-target pass was picked off near midfield with 2:14 left, clinching it for Cincinnati. Taylor finished 20 of 37 for 166 yards and was sacked six times. The Bengals changed offensive coordinators after failing to get a touchdown in their first two games. Green complained that they weren't getting the ball to their difference makers. He made the difference Sunday, catching seven passes for 189 yards. strong>JETS 17, BROWNS 14 /strong> CLEVELAND (AP) — Josh McCown came back to Cleveland and beat the team that cut him, throwing two touchdown passes and leading the surprising Jets over the winless Browns, who benched rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer and fell to 1-20 under coach Hue Jackson. McCown went 1-10 in two seasons as a starter for the Browns, who released him on Feb. 7 in a cost-cutting move. The 38-year-old wasn't seeking revenge, but he got it with two second-half scoring tosses. McCown threw a 2-yard TD pass to Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the third quarter and a 24-yarder to Jermaine Kearse in the fourth to give the Jets (3-2) a 17-7 lead en route to their third straight victory. Kearse's TD capped a 97-yard drive after Jackson decided not to try a potential tying field goal — rookie kicker Zane Gonzalez missed two attempts in the first half — and went for it on fourth down. However, running back Isaiah Crowell was stopped short by New York's defense. Jackson also decided to replace Kizer in the second half for backup Kevin Hogan, perhaps a sign the coach is worried about losing his job. Hogan threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end David Njoku. The Browns (0-5) dropped to 2-30 in their past 32 games, but they did finally get to see No. 1 overall draft pick Myles Garrett. Garrett, who missed Cleveland's first four games with a high ankle sprain, got a sack on his first play and finished with two. strong>RAVENS 30, RAIDERS 17 /strong> OAKLAND, California (AP) — Joe Flacco hit Mike Wallace on two deep passes to spark Baltimore's struggling offense, and the Ravens got a fumble return for a touchdown by Jimmy Smith to beat short-handed Oakland. Flacco had struggled to get the ball downfield in losing the past two weeks. He changed that on the opening drive of the game for the Ravens (3-2) when he connected on a 52-yard pass to Wallace that set up an early touchdown and established the tone for the day. The Raiders (2-3), playing without injured star quarterback Derek Carr and two key cornerbacks, played from behind all game as Smith returned Jared Cook's fumble 47 yards for a touchdown that made it 14-0 just 3:50 in. Backup quarterback E.J. Manuel , making his fourth start in the past three seasons, threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree and led another TD drive that ended in Marshawn Lynch's 3-yard run . He finished 13 for 26 for 159 yards. But that wasn't nearly enough for the Raiders, who have dropped three straight following a 2-0 start, putting a severe dent in their hopes to challenge in the AFC West. strong>SEAHAWKS 16, RAMS 10 /strong> LOS ANGELES (AP) — Russell Wilson passed for 198 yards and a touchdown, and Earl Thomas forced two of the Rams' five turnovers in Seattle's win. Jimmy Graham scored late in the first half in a defense-dominated win for the Seahawks (3-2), who shut out the NFL's highest-scoring offense in the second half of their second straight win over their NFC West rivals. Thomas made enormous defensive plays early and late for Seattle. The veteran safety stripped the ball from Todd Gurley at the goal line to kill the Rams' opening drive, and he intercepted Jared Goff's fluttering pass at midfield with 6:02 to play. Sheldon Richardson also came through with two big plays, diving to intercept a deflected pass in the third quarter before scooping up Goff's fumble near midfield with 2:45 left. Goff moved the Rams 55 yards in the final 1:09, but Seattle's defense made its final stop. Rams rookie Cooper Kupp barely missed a diving TD grab on third down, and Goff's fourth-down pass to Kupp was too low. Tavon Austin rushed for a 27-yard TD for Los Angeles (3-2), and Goff went 22 of 47 for 288 yards with three costly turnovers. .....»»

Meet FEU's new swag queen Czarina Carandang

Far Eastern University middle Czarina Carandang smacked the ball right at an open spot in the middle of Adamson University’s side in the fourth set of their best-of-three semifinals Game 2 of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference on Saturday. The third-year player gave a long stare down at the Lady Falcons. “Aba palaban!,” National University setter Jasmine Nabor joked while she and the Lady Bulldogs watched the match near the entrance to FilOil Flying V Centre’s dugouts . During the closing juncture of the fifth set, Carandang gave Adamson scorer Eli Soyud a grin and another dose of stare down after scoring on a kill block. FEU needed an inspiration when its back was against the wall in the semis series. Carandang unleashed her inner Remy Palma, the former FEU skipper known for her swag, as the Lady Tams survived elimination to keep their semifinals hopes alive in a thrilling, 21-25, 27-25, 25-20, 23-25, 15-11, win that tied the series at 1-1.        “Kasi po kapag crucial point lalo na po ngayon na do-or-die kami kailangan pong ipakita ko ‘yung tapang ko lalo na po’t wala si Ate (Bernadeth) Pons saka si Ate Kyla (Atienza),” said Carandang, who had a breakout night with 20 points. “Parang naisip ko rin po na parang pam-boost din siya ng confidence,” she added.     Carandang had 15 spikes, three kill blocks and two service winners while playing and starting in all five sets. But her swag and antics in her inspired play was something that definitely made Palma, who witnessed the match, proud. “Kanina nga nagkaka-eye to eye kami ni Ate Remy. Gumaganoon siya sa akin na, ‘relax lang Czar, relax lang.’ So sa kanya lang ako tumitingin, ‘na Ate Rem anong gagawin ko?’ said Carandang. The Tanauan, Batangas player looked up to Palma, who exhausted all her five playing years in the UAAP last season, even before. “Kasi ever since noong simula pa lang noong rookie year ko pa lang. Hindi po ako volleyball player talaga eh. May height lang ako talaga pero wala pong skills, si coach Shaq (Delos Santos) po ang kumuha sa akin tapos pinalakas nya po ako,” she said. “Tapos every time na may gagawin, ‘Ate Rem paano po ito? Paano po ang ganito?’ Sa kanya lang po ako nagtatanong lalo na po kung nalilito ako. Kanina po nag-eye to eye lang po kami na parang ‘Ate paano?’ Alam nya na po sa isip niya yun na, ‘Relax lang Czar, kaya mo ‘yan.’” Asked if she’s a Remy Palma in the making, Carandang said that nothing beats the original. “Si Ate Rem po talaga yung parang ‘The Boss’ talaga, paran ako kampon na lang,” she said. “Konting angas lang, low key lang.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Of Pizzas and Ensaymada: The PBA Press Corps issue emphatic response to Ali Peek s accusations

The PBA Press Corps is taking none of Ali Peek's rather controversial comments. In an official statement released Tuesday, the PBA Press Corps condemned Peek's accusations on social media, saying that the group will not back down from anyone who questions its integrity. In a series of social media posts on Twitter and on Facebook, Peek, a 16-year PBA veteran who now works as a TV analyst, questioned the non-inclusion of Globalport's Sean Anthony and Alaska's Vic Manuel to any of the All-Star teams that will see action this week. Peek specifically singled out the "guys in [the PBA] Press Room" and even accused the Press Corps of taking bribes, whether in the form of money, pizza, and/or ensaymada, in exchange of votes for award and All-Star selections. The only problem with Peek's argument is that the PBA Press Corps has no say whatsoever in choosing players that will participate in the All-Star Games. "Mr. Peek got his facts wrong, first, because the media doesn’t determine who the members of the All-Star teams are, and second, the PBA Press Corps has never asked for anything in return from anyone for an award," the PBAPC statement said. "It was unimaginable on his part – not knowing how the All-Star members are named – considering that he was in the league that long and that he is a member of the television panel covering the games for Cignal’s HD Channel," the statement added. Ali Peek has since apoligized on his Facebook account, saying he "got carried away," and he was in a "very aggressive mood," as of late. However, the PBA Press Corps feel that Peek could have done better. "The PBA Press Corps doesn’t make decisions in a heartbeat, the group makes them after long deliberations and careful consideration," the statement said. "That’s why it pains the group so much that Mr. Peek decided to come up with his rants without any provocation.  And in his apology posted on Facebook today, the group wonders why Mr. Peek did not talk to the PBAPC first considering “that we are right next door to each other” before he came up with them?" the PBA PC added. The full PBA Press Corps statement can be read below.   Official statement from the PBA Press Corps in response to Ali Peek's rather controversial accusations on social media #PBA2018 pic.twitter.com/AgCY3TeoJN — Paul Kennedy Lintag (@paullintag8) May 22, 2018     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
