Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Minus Kevin Durant, Warriors stop Rockets’ 9-game win streak Rogue cops marked as Gamboa’s targets in his appointment as PNP chief Andre Drummond fouled out with 6:30 left and finished with five points and nine rebounds — snapping his run of 19 consecutive double-doubles, which left him tied with Bob Lanier for the Pistons’ all-time record streak in that department.It wasn’t Drummond’s night.It wasn’t the Pistons’ night in any way. They shot 36 percent, got outrebounded 51-36 and were 8 for 37 from 3-point range — 1 for 17 in the second half. It went down as Detroit’s second-worst loss of the season, topped only by a 37-pointer at Indiana on Dec. 28.“For two games in a row now, we didn’t come out in playoff mode,” Pistons coach Dwane Casey said. “There’s nothing schematically. There’s nothing X-and-O wise. It’s our approach. We have to understand at this time of year … the only thing you can do is scrap and play hard.”TIP-INSPistons: Detroit hadn’t lost a quarter by 25 points since Oct. 30, 2010. … Drummond was looking to join Kevin Love (53), Dwight Howard (separate streaks of 33 and 20), Griffin (27) and Russell Westbrook (23, earlier this season) as players in the last decade with 20 straight double-doubles.Heat: Miami opened on an 8-0 run, its best to start a game this season. … It was Miami’s 600th sellout at AmericanAirlines Arena — the last 413 of those coming consecutively — and 900th home sellout overall. … The Heat celebrated Pride Night, and the national anthem before the game was performed by the South Florida Gay Men’s Chorus.EIGHT IS ENOUGHThere have been four instances of a team holding another to eight points or less in a quarter this season. Miami is responsible for three of them. Houston held Chicago to seven in the third quarter on Nov. 3 — and the rest of the list is all Heat. Miami held the Los Angeles Clippers to eight points in the fourth quarter on Dec. 8, and kept the Milwaukee Bucks to that many in the first quarter on Dec. 22.WADE BLOCKS View comments Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil MOST READ “Our starting lineup has had some good starts and some play that’s been trending in the right direction,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “But that was as inspiring as they’ve been.”Blake Griffin scored 13 points for Detroit, which got 11 from Wayne Ellington. Detroit missed its first 11 shots of the third quarter, eight of them from 3-point range.The Pistons have now dropped consecutive games for the first time since Jan. 25 and 29 — and both were blowout losses, with this one on the heels of a 103-75 rout in Brooklyn on Wednesday.“It’s about our mental fortitude and coming out and having a better mindset at the beginning of games, myself included,” Griffin said. “I’m not excluding myself from that at all. If we have any fight about us at all we’ll come out and rectify that.”Miami (32-35) is still No. 8 in the East, now two games ahead of No. 9 Orlando and two games back of No. 7 Detroit.ADVERTISEMENT Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball PLAY LIST 05:02SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Piracy massacre…as Guyana’s Security Minister leads team to SurinamePublic Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan, accompanied by Deputy Crime Chief, Michael Kingston; and Deputy Commander B Division (Berbice), Wayne De Harte, on Saturday evening departed Guyana for Suriname to meet with their security counterparts following the recent spate of pirate attacks on Guyanese fishermen.While there, they are expected to be briefed on the matter by law enforcements officers and to meet with the Security Minister of that country to work on plans to keep the waters safe from piracy.Survivor: Cherwin LovellIn addition, seven relatives of missing fishermen were provided with the necessary documentation to travel to Suriname to join in the search for their loved ones.Speaking with Guyana Times, Crime Chief Paul Williams explained that the team is expected to return on Tuesday while confirming that the Guyana Police Force (GPF) has been in contact with their counterparts since the incidents took place.He added with the planned visit, additional information will be provided on the attacks and those who are presently in custody in Suriname.To date, he noted that seven Guyanese, who now reside in Suriname, were arrested along with the three who were arrested on the Corentyne. The Crime Chief explained that news coming out of Suriname suggested that the attacks are gang related but this is yet to be confirmed.Nevertheless, he reiterated that the GPF will give the necessary support the Surinamese law enforcement to bring the perpetrators to justice.On that note, Williams stated that those arrested in Suriname will be charged in that jurisdiction but once the Surinamese authorities request that the addition three from Guyana be prosecuted there, arrangements will be put in place for them to be handed over.Two Saturdays ago, four boats were attacked, and the fishermen were beaten and thrown overboard. Four of them reportedly survived the attack while the bodies of three were so far recovered.Those identified as missing are: Ramesh Sanchara, Ganesh Persaud, Vickey Persaud, Glenroy Jones, Bharat Heralall, Ralph Anthony, and Tiaknauth Mohabir. The bodies that were recovered are yet to be positively identified.However, a few days after that attack, another boat was attacked and the captain, Hardeo Beechan was killed while his crew went missing. The relatives of the missing men have called on the Government of Guyana to assist them in their search.So far, the Surinamese officials have been facilitating the searches in territorial waters with the aim of finding the missing men. In light of these incidents, fishermen – both in Guyana and Suriname – have suspended operations claiming that the waters have become quite “dangerous”.On Thursday last, Surinamese Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Minister, Lekhram Soerdjan, convened a meeting with Visserscollectief – the organ that represents the fishermen and various proposals were made by the Board.After that meeting, it was reported that a Government coordination team led by Justice and Police Minister, Stuart Getrouw, as well as Ministers Soerdjan and Ronni Benschop of the Defence Ministry, had another meeting to discuss the tragedy.Minister Getrouw stated that the Government of Suriname is already in contact with neighbouring countries to bring clarity to the heinous tragedy. However, the Surinamese Government emphasised that the issue is dealt with by the relevant authorities with the necessary diligence, tact and seriousness.More in custodyMeanwhile, sources in Suriname told Guyana Times that at least 26 persons have been arrested but the Police remain tight-lipped about the situation. It was reported that one man was arrested on Thursday morning and another six were nabbed later that evening.Additional suspects, according to the source, were arrested between Friday and Saturday. Further, a rally was held on Saturday, which saw fishermen and their relatives in their numbers calling on the Surinamese Government to work in ensuring that the sea is once again safe to ply their trade. Many Guyanese fishermen participated in the event.
LANCASTER – Somewhere up there, Meyer Bernard Himelstaub must be smiling. The man entrenched in Antelope Valley lore as the “Ghost of Mira Loma” was given a proper funeral nearly 65 years to the day of his horrifying death. Himelstaub was a 22-year-old British Royal Air Force cadet assigned to the Antelope Valley’s War Eagle Field – now the site of Mira Loma county detention center on 60th Street West and Avenue I – when he was decapitated by a taxiing plane he accidentally walked into on Feb. 13, 1942. Himelstaub was a Jew who escaped Nazi-dominated Poland as a child. He was an aspiring military pilot who historians say was determined to fight the Nazis in World War II. Among those who spoke at the event was Rabbi David Hoffman. Tears streamed down the faces of several Hillview students during the ceremony. The students’ study of Himelstaub’s life compelled them to become involved in the ceremony. “He’s become like family,” Hillview student Dulcie Adhiambo said. “His legacy was that he was going for his dream of going to fight Hitler, even though he didn’t really fulfill it. We just wanted everyone to know what really happened.” The ceremony concluded with a missing-man formation flyover used by the Royal Air Force to honor dead pilots. The flyover featured vintage Steerman and AT-6 planes. Antelope Valley military historian Bob Alvis said Himelstaub likely flew a Steerman, an aviation classic that features two stacked wings. “You never want to forget our fallen, and this was a nice gesture to show the English that we appreciate your fallen,” said Alvis, who helped organize the event. “The ghost of War Eagle Field is not a great legacy for a fallen cadet. … It’s kind of become a carnival sideshow,” Alvis said. “As far as honoring his legacy, this is what we want to remember.” firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 267-7802160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! He was buried at Lancaster cemetery three days after his death, thousands of miles away from family. Sheriff’s deputies and inmates at Mira Loma have reported inexplicable events over the years, fueling speculation that Himelstaub’s restless spirit was haunting the Antelope Valley. On Friday, residents attempted to make peace with Himelstaub’s spirit, honoring the man’s life in a ceremony in which a new headstone was unveiled at his burial site. Several prominent civic and community leaders – including mayors from Lancaster and Palmdale, a representative from the British Commonwealth War Graves Commission and an eighth-grade Hillview Middle School history class instrumental in organizing the event – were among about 200 people who attended the ceremony. A War Graves Commission request that Himelstaub be given a new headstone provided the impetus for the ceremony.
