Proposal to split Palawan into 3 provinces gets mixed reactions

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY - A legislative measure initiated by provincial political leaders to divide Palawan into three smaller provinces has sparked mixed reactions from local residents after it breezed through the House of Representatives in August and was endorsed last week by Senator Sonny Angara. The measure, which is being pushed by the provincial government, aims to separate the north, central and southern regions of Palawan into three separate provinces. Governor Jose Alvarez, who has been actively lobbying for the bill's passage in Congress, said the initiative is necessary to improve local governance and spark growth.

Johnson, of course, was one-half of the storied Bird-Magic rivalry of the 1980's where his Los Angeles Lakers and Larry Bird's Boston Celtics rejuvenated the NBA and brought it to better heights in three NBA Finals match-ups in the decade.

Olynyk s putback off Wade s miss lifts Heat past Wiz 113-112

By Howard Fendrich, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Kelly Olynyk’s putback of Dwyane Wade’s missed jumper produced the go-ahead basket with 0.2 seconds left Thursday night (Friday, PHL time), lifting the Miami Heat to a ragged 113-112 comeback victory over the Washington Wizards, who were without new center Dwight Howard for their season opener. 🚨GAME WINNER ALERT🚨@KellyOlynyk puts the Wizards away! pic.twitter.com/Euoik9BCIq — Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) October 19, 2018 Olynyk was booed every time he touched the ball, on account of a past playoff fracas with the Wizards back when he was with the Boston Celtics. But he certainly got to enjoy the way this game ended, after Miami trailed by as many as nine points. Josh Richardson led Miami with 28 points, Rodney McGruder added 20, and the Heat hit consecutive three's late in the fourth quarter. With Howard sidelined by a sore backside, the Wizards were led by old standby John Wall, who delivered 26 points and nine assists. He and fellow All-Star guard Bradley Beal, who scored 20 points, accounted for Washington’s last eight points. But with a 112-111 lead, Wall missed a 26-foot pull-up jumper, giving Miami a chance. Wade’s shot with about three seconds left was off the mark, but Olynyk grabbed the rebound and his layup won it. The Heat were playing on the second night of a back-to-back — they lost at Orlando on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) — and Wade appeared in both games, scoring nine each night. He shot a combined 7 for 24. Wizards coach Scott Brooks put an emphasis on pleading with his players to shoot more three's this season. Didn’t work. At least not in Game 1. Washington was only 7-for-26 from beyond the arc. Wall led the way with 18 points as Washington went into halftime ahead 59-58. And after Miami briefly went up in the third quarter, the Wizards used a 10-point run midway through the period to enter the fourth with an 89-85 edge. They couldn’t hold on. TIP-INS Heat: Coach Eric Spoelstra was asked about Wade, 36, appearing in both ends of a back-to-back to open the season. “Right now, it’s Game 2. He wants to play. We want him to play,” Spoelstra said. “And he’s in great shape, he feels good, so he’s able to go.” ... G Wayne Ellington (ankle) was active but did not play. Wizards: Ian Mahnimi started for Howard, but picked up his fourth foul 15 seconds into the third quarter. By quarter’s end, four Wizards — three starters — each had four personal fouls. ... F Kelly Oubre Jr. was the first substitute used by Washington, entering for Otto Porter Jr. midway through the first quarter. TOLIVER’S DEBUT WNBA All-Star Kristi Toliver made her regular-season debut as an assistant coach on Scott Brooks’ staff. “I love her. Our staff loves her. Our players feel the same way,” Brooks said. “She adds value to our program. She’s very talented. She loves the game. She’s passionate. And she wants to learn. She has this incredible desire to get better.” NO HOWARD This was the first game Howard missed for a health reason since the 2016-17 season. He appeared in 81 of 82 games last season with Charlotte, missing one because of a suspension. “He’s getting close,” Brooks said. “We just don’t feel like he’s quite there yet. Like I said a few weeks ago, we’re in no rush. We just want to make sure that he’s comfortable — we’re comfortable — going forward.” UP NEXT Heat: Host Charlotte on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) in their home opener. Wizards: Host Toronto on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) in a rematch from last season’s playoffs. The Raptors eliminated the Wizards in the first round......»»
