Katropa frustrates SMB, levels Finals

first_img[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]MANILA – TNT leaned on the exploits of Jayson Castro in the endgame to score 102-97 against San Miguel in Game 4 of the Oppo PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals last night at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.Trailing 86-81 with under five minutes left in the game, Castro ignited a huge 13-5 scoring run for Katropa to take a 94-89 advantage after an inside conversion by Ranidel de Ocampo.Beermen came to within 3 points on a basket by Charles Rhodes but Castro responded with two straight inside hits to increase TNT’s lead to 101-93 after two free throws by Joshua Smith.Castro finished with 17 points, with 10 coming in the final quarter, for TNT.Smith led the way with 20 points and 15 rebounds, while Roger Pogoy came back from two scoreless games to contribute 14 points.“All we did is tie the series and cut it down to a best-of-three,” said TNT head coach Nash Racela. “There is nothing to celebrate yet. We just have to prepare since we expect San Miguel to bounce back in Game 5.”Katropa aim to regain the Commissioner’s Cup crown after failing to defend it last year.Before the game, San Miguel guard Chris Ross and Rhodes were awarded the Best Player of the Conference and the Best Import of the Conference, respectively.Ross claimed his first BPC award after edging out teammate Alex Cabagnot in media, players and PBA votes.

NO COMMENT: Commission nixes non-agenda comments, rescinds former city manager’s severance

first_imgBy ESTEVAN MEDRANOPort Isabel-South Padre [email protected] Port Isabel City Commission approved a number of policy changes at a regular meeting Tuesday evening under the legal advice of newly appointed city attorney Gilberto Hinojosa and transparency recommendations by interim city manager Jared Hockema.Hinojosa recommended the removal of “open comments” from the agenda because although the public is allowed to make comments to the Board during the time-regulated “public comments” section at the beginning of each meeting, comments made afterwards could potentially be a violation of the Open Meetings Act. That act calls for proper notice to the public when an item that is not on the agenda for discussion is deliberated.“When you (the audience) give a public comment to the commissioners and the mayor, they can’t respond to you by law,” said Hinojosa. “It’s very frustrating because you’re telling them something because you want a response, but if they respond to you, they’re violating the Open Meetings Act,” he said.The Board followed counsel’s advice for now and also approved a recommendation by Hockema that a brief report of the City’s updated financial situation be acknowledged at the beginning of each meeting. Hockema called attention to the light revenues in some areas, including low tax collection, as well as lower than expected revenues from the Port Isabel Event & Cultural Center — still in its first year of operation — which is operating at a deficit.Want the whole story?
