PSC Golf from Mulligans LakesideTuesday, March 8, Rayong C.C. – StablefordTuesday we ventured out along the route 36, turning off to visit Rayong C.C. The course was in good order, representing good value with PSC vouchers, too bad the weather could not do the right thing for us. After about an hour’s play, the heavens opened up and everyone had to take cover as the greens became unplayable, with some lightning also around. After 40 minutes or so, it was back to normal and away we all went again. Best to handle the conditions over the 18 holes was Jeff Wylie (7) with 35 points, ahead of Tony Chetland (18) who got second with 32 after edging Dave Edwards on count-back 18 to 15.Near pins were picked up by Ron, Dave and Jeff, with one going to Banglamung Boys Home after no-one knocked it on the green.Thursday, March 10, Plutaluang – StablefordThursday was a trip to Plutaluang, where despite threatening skies we made it around dry. Again it was Jeff Wylie (7) on top with 35 points, edging out Bob Edwards (13) on count-back 19 to 14. Third place prize money went to Dave Edwards (14) with a paltry 25 points, but still shows there were some pretty poor scores floating around out there.Near pins were secured by visitors Elizabeth Middleton (1), husband David (2), with Graham Hiskett grabbing the tough South 7.Note: Mulligans Lakeside plays golf usually on Tuesdays & Thursdays, although we do sometimes change to suit a Public Holiday. Hope to see you there. Cheers & good golfing!

By Alan BaldwinLewis Hamilton lapped six tenths of a second faster than Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg in a twice halted Belgian Grand Prix practice session on Friday.After championship leader Rosberg had set the pace in the morning with a lap just 0.097 seconds faster than the Briton’s best, Hamilton turned the tables after lunch with a substantially quicker effort.The time of one minute 49.189 was 0.604 better than Rosberg’s on a cloudy but bright day at the longest track on the calendar, where the weather can combine the seasons in the space of an afternoon.Rosberg had topped the first session timesheets in 1:51.577 as the two title rivals – separated by just 11 points after 11 of 19 races – renewed their duel after the August break with their domination intact.The afternoon running was interrupted when Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado crashed his Lotus into the barriers on the way to Pouhon.There was a further stoppage in the first half hour when Mexican Esteban Gutierrez’s Sauber spun and was stranded on the track at Blanchimont.Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was third fastest in both sessions with McLaren’s Jenson Button fourth in the morning and fifth in the afternoon.The Mercedes-powered teams were predicted to dominate and had seven cars in the top 10 in the opening session.But Ferrari’s showing, with four times Spa winner Kimi Raikkonen fifth fastest in the morning despite a spin at La Source, indicated they would not have it all their own way.Williams had a low-key start, with Finland’s Valtteri Bottas 10th on the timesheets and Brazilian Felipe Massa 15th, but picked up with Massa fourth in the afternoon.Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo, winner of the previous race in Hungary, was ninth and eighth in the two sessions while his quadruple world champion team mate Sebastian Vettel sat out the second session due to an electrical problem that forced an engine change.At the bottom end of the field, Germany’s Andre Lotterer limbered up for his F1 debut with Caterham as a replacement for Japan’s Kamui Kobayashi by lapping faster than Swedish rookie team mate Marcus Ericsson in the morning.American Alexander Rossi replaced Max Chilton for the session at Marussia but his hopes of completing the weekend and racing for the first time evaporated when the Briton was reinstated following contractual wrangles.
Liberia’s Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) has launched an investigation into US$100,000 remitted to the House of Representatives to conduct a nationwide consultation on the draft Oil and Gas law.The amount in question is part of US$1.2 million issued by the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) to the Legislature for the draft law. According to reports, US$200,000 was released to the Liberian Senate while US$1 million should have been given to the House, but instead only US$900,000 was received by the consultation committee headed by Deputy Speaker Hans Barchue.According to a letter addressed to Deputy Speaker Barchue under the signature of D. Blamo Kofa, Chief Investigator and approved by Cllr. J. Augustine Toe, Acting Chairperson of LACC; the graft commission wants Deputy Speaker Barchue to provide a “useful information and comprehensive expenditure report.”LACC is also requesting that a copy of the US$1.2 million budget, voucher and other relevant documents received by Deputy Speaker Barchue be provided during Barchue’s appearance at the Commission today at 10 a.m. at the Commission’s Gurley Street offices.However, in a counter letter addressed to the House on January 21, the Grand Bassa County lawmaker acknowledged receipt of the LACC invitation and proposed that plenary and the leadership of the House take charge of the matter.Deputy Speaker Barchue said he was only asked to execute a simple piece of job which he did perfectly well.“I would like to inform you that, since it was the plenary, through leadership, that instructed my committee to conduct this nationwide tour, I would appreciate were plenary to take siege of this matter,” Deputy Speaker Barchue asserted.However, plenary noted their colleague’s letter and forwarded it to the House’s leadership for discussion next week.Meanwhile, relative to the Nationwide Oil and Gas Consultation and the expenditure of US$900,000 received by Deputy Speaker Barchue’s committee, the second among equals termed the process as successful.In his report yesterday, Deputy Barchue declared: “I am pleased to inform plenary that the task is completed; and therefore I present a detailed, comprehensive, expenditure report on the US$900,000 that was requested and approved by plenary through the leadership.”Plenary advised that copies of the report be distributed to all members of the House for discussion next Tuesday.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A 39-year-old labourer from Anna Regina, Essequibo Coast, was on Thursday remanded to prison after he was charged for unlawful wounding.He made his appearance before Magistrate Sunil Scarce at the Suddie Magistrate’s Court. It is alleged that on July 10, he unlawfully wounded Govinda Persaud, a carpenter from Richmond Village, Essequibo Coast.

Former West Ham star Dean Ashton has blasted Dimitri Payet’s behaviour as ‘disgusting’.Payet has effectively gone on strike in a bid to force a move away from the Hammers this month, with boss Slaven Bilic revealing last week that the Frenchman has informed him he no longer wants to play for the club.The 29-year-old, who was the club’s Player of the Year last season, is understood to be keen on a return to his homeland with former club Marseille.Payet’s actions in trying to force his exit have infuriated Bilic and the club’s fans – and Ashton feels similarly aggrieved with the playmaker.Ashton, who was forced to retire due to injury aged just 26, told talkSPORT: “There are lots of players that behind the scenes are trying to manufacture a move, but there is a way to do it.“I can’t play anymore and to see the way Payet is acting, I can’t tell you how angry it makes me. “He can play on and players like me who suffer injuries can’t carry on.“West Ham love him, they absolutely adore him, they wouldn’t dream to think he would go and do this. He is so many kids’ favourite player.“It is disgusting what he is doing in refusing to play.”

For more on this story, pick up tomorrow’s Whittier Daily News. MONTEBELLO – Plans that officials with the Catholic Archdioses of Los Angeles have been working on for nine years to build a mortuary at Resurrection Cemetery in Montebello were effectively scrapped, after City Council members refused to give Archdioses officials more time to submit documents. By refusing to extend a conditional use permit for the Archdioses of Los Angeles to allow officials more time to acquire certain documents from various government entities, the 9-year-old plans were effectively scrapped. In a 4-0 vote and one absention Wednesday, the council asked that staff prepare a resolution for the Oct. 11 meeting detailing the reasons they refused to extend the CUP. The archdioses planned to lease the graveyard to Stewart Enterprises, a Louisiana-based, for-profit company specializing in building and running funeral, mortuary and burial services. “We’re very disappointed they didn’t extend the CUP,” said Randy Stricklin, president of corporate development for Stewart Enterprises, Inc. “I don’t know where it goes from here. I personally have been working on this since 1997.”
Philippe Coutinho – will he stay or will he go in January? Dean Saunders has urged Liverpool to keep hold of Philippe Coutinho, warning his former club: ‘You won’t win the league if you sell your best players!’Brazilian playmaker Coutinho has been in great form for the Reds this season, but he is widely expected to leave this month with Barcelona still keen on bringing him to the Nou Camp.Having failed with their attempts to sign him in the summer, latest reports from Spain claim Barca have tabled an offer worth up to €150million (£133m) to sign him in January.READ MORE: Barcelona make €150million move for Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho, claims leading Spanish paperIt is claimed Liverpool will consider an offer if they deem it a fair price for their star man, but former Reds star Saunders wants the club to show their ambition to win titles by keeping the Brazilian.Asked about Coutinho’s potential move to the Nou Camp, the Welshman told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “Coutinho’s attitude has been spot on, he’s played really well and [that shows you] he’s probably had some assurances that he can leave.“But this could be a statement from Liverpool, they can stamp their authority on world football with this transaction.“If they keep Coutinho they’re telling the world they’re trying to win the league, but if they sell him they’re telling everybody they’ve having to sell before they can buy.“All the players are waiting for that statement too – the players are sitting there thinking, ‘am I at Liverpool to win the league or am I at Liverpool to get in the top six’?“If they keep Coutinho and they sign another player, they’re sending a message out to everybody: ‘We mean business’.“It’s up to the owners, they’re the only ones who know if they can compete with what Barcelona are offering him, and if they can afford to do it.“If they can’t afford to do it, they won’t win the league.“You won’t win the league if you sell your best players… you just won’t.” 1 “They can stamp their authority on world football.”Dean Saunders urges #LFC to show their ambition by keeping Philippe Coutinho at the club… pic.twitter.com/jebqLnSnRo— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) January 3, 2018
