Meet the Fil-Am woman mayor of Sierra Madre – Calif., that is

    It was a good day to run. The sun was shining but the weather was cool. Rachelle Pastor Arizmendi knew Sierra Madre City, California very well.

While jogging, Rachelle ran into a friend, a fellow resident.   "How are you doing?" he asked.   "I'm getting sworn-in on Tuesday?" she said.   "Sworn-in?

ASIAN GAMES: Medal drought continues for PHI keglers

PALEMBANG --- The Philippines’ quest for a medal in 18th Asian Games bowling remained elusive for the second straight day on Thursday as the No. 1 team of Kenneth Chua, Merwin Tan and Enzo Hernandez wound up in 10th place in men’s trios at the Jakabaring Bowling Center here. Similar to their women’s counterparts the previous day, the Filipinos couldn’t cluster their big games together, combining for a six-games series of 4134, 210 pins off victorious Japanese Tomuyuki Sasaki, Shogo Wada and Shusako Asato with 4344. Malaysia (4235) bagged silver, narrowly relegating Singapore (4226) to the bronze medal at the sold-out bowling arena built specifically for the Games. The other Philippine squad of Jomar Jumapao, Kenzo Umali and Raoul Miranda combined for a meager 3777 to languish in 27th out of 33 teams. “Sayang we had a good chance for bronze going into the last game but missed some crucial spares,” head coach Paeng Nepomuceno said. “Kailangang sabay-sabay na maganda ang laro to win a medal.” For men’s coach Biboy Rivera, the main problem was “lack of sustained focus and penalties, which proved to be very costly.” He cited the case of Tan, who fouled at least three times during the series, resulting to a zero score for that particular frame that subsequently pulled the rest of the team down. “But Merwin is a resilient bowler and I know he will be able to recover and play better in the succeeding events,” said Rivera of Tan, who was a member of the four-man squad that copped a bronze medal in the World Youth Championships early this month in Allen Park, Michigan. With the new scoring system putting premium on strikes,  Chua, Tan and Hernandez were unable to keep abreast with the sizzling scoring pace, combining for 2059 after the first three games to lie in 13th spot, 227 pins behind the frontrunning Japanese. At the hallfway mark, Asato was in blistering form with a three-game average of 269.5, capped by the tournament’s first perfect score of 300 in the third game. Hostilities resume on Friday with the women’s six-man team event with entire squad of Lizal del Rosario, Lara Posadas, Alexis Sy, Rachelle Leon, Dyan Coronacion and Maria Lourdes Arles all seeing action......»»

ASIAN GAMES: Wushu s Divine Wally earns Philippines fifth bronze

JAKARTA — Divine Wally salvaged a bronze from wushu’s women’s -52 kgs of sanda late Wednesday night to prevent what could have been a first medal-less day for the Philippines in the 18th Asian Games. A day after the entire country celebrated Hidilyn Diaz’s success in weightlifting, no other Filipino athlete from the 272-member delegation came so close to winning another gold medal with China bagged its 35th gold medal to widen its gap over second running Japan with 18 golds and Japan with 10. The one-gold and five-bronze haul put the Philippines at No. 16 on the medal tally board—behind Southeast Asian rivals No. 4 Indonesia (six golds) and No. 8 Thailand (four golds) and ahead of No. 17 Singapore (one gold and two silvers), No. 20 Vietnam (three silvers and six bronzes) and No. 23 Myanmar (two bronzes). The veteran internationalist Wally lost to a taller and more aggressive Samiroumi Elaheh Mansoryan of Iran, 1-2, in their quarterfinal match to settle for the bronze at the Jakarta International Expo. The five-foot flat Wally tried her best to connect with her strikes, but the 5-foot-6 two-time world champion Mansoryan evaded them, while connecting on her attacks to advance to the championship round on Thursday and possibly finally win the gold that eluded her in Incheon 2014, where she was a silver medalist. Mansoryan, the world champion in Kuala Lumpur (2013) and Kazan, Russia (2017), will dispute the gold with China’s Li Yueyao at 10 a.m. Also the Asian champion in 2016 in the 56kg class, Mansoryan was simply too much against Wally as she aggressively dominated the Filipina in the final two rounds after trailing the first, 0-1. The 24-year-old Wally, though, improved on her fifth-place finish in the Asian Games as she contributed to the Philippines’ medal haul with its fifth bronze and the second from wushu, counting Agatha Wong’s own medal in the women’s taolu. Wally, the 2016 48 kgs champion of the Asian Championships in Taoyuan, was assured of the bronze after beating Petriwi Selviah of Indonesia, 2-0. She earlier subdued Mimi Yoysaykham of Laos, 2-0. She took up the sport in 2013 at age 18. The Blu Girls, meanwhile, blanked Indonesia, 4-0, also on Wednesday to boost their chances for a podium finish in women’s softball at the Gelura Bung Karno diamond. Mary Ann Antolihao started for the Blu Girls, allowing only four hits and striking out Indonesians before turning over the pitching job to Royevel Palma who struck out four, as the Philippines took its fourth win in five outings. Indonesia virtually bowed out with no win to show after give games. The PH lady batters were coming off a disappointing 1-11 loss to the Japanese late Tuesday. The defending champions bombarded Pinay pitchers Mia Macapagal and Antolihao with 11 hits, nine of them coming at the top of the 4th inning for the abbreviated win. The Philippines has yet to beat the Japanese in their international matches. With the lone setback, the Blu Girls tied previous victim China at second place. The Blu Girls were to take on Chinese-Taipei at 9 p.m. (Philippine time), aiming for a victory that would assure them of a bronze medal in this seven-nation tournament. A win over the Taiwanese would put the Filipinas at no. 2 position after the round-robin elimination and assured them of a bronze medal via the page-system semifinal. The top four teams will advance to a page system semifinal to determine the protagonists for the gold medal. Japan, which blanked Korea earlier in the day is poised to top the chart with clean 5-0 card. In Palembang, top Philippine troika of Liza del Rosario, Lara Posadas and Alexis Sy were derailed by the morning lane conditions and could  muster only seventh place at the start of the bowling championships at the ultra-modern Jakabaring Sports City Bowling Center. Unable to find their lines and adjust in time with the use of the long-oil pattern in the first three games, the Filipina keglers pooled 4026, 300 pinfalls behind the sizzling Malaysian trio of Hamidi Afifah Badrul, Rahman Siti Abdul and Mei Lan Chea, who took the gold with combined tally of 4255. Chinese-Taipeh (4255) settled for silver while Singapore got bronze (4250) in a day of soaring scores with the new scoring system in play, exemplified by Malaysian Badrul’s eye-popping six-game average of 242.83, and with teammates Abdul (238.33) and Cheah just as hot (239.83). The other triumvirate of Maria Lourdes Arles, Rachelle Leon and Dyan Coronacion placed 10th with a combined output of 3923......»»
