He genuinely only wanted to help.”The PFF official said it’s time the federation gets its acts together to ensure that a similar result doesn’t happen.“We need to look at our shortcomings as an organization,” said Palami.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio 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 Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

By Jon ZacksThe Huskies were missing players and brains on Monday night, as they dropped game one of their second-round playoff series to the Grande Prairie Wheelers. The second-ranked Huskies were almost doubled in shots (47-25) and pressured for long stretches in their own zone, for almost the entire 60 minutes.- Advertisement -Missing a legion of key players, the pups played short-benched and with three Midget call-ups on defence. With Payden Wongstedt, Jesse Disher, and Kyle Porter all suspended, the Fort St. John squad was also missing Dylan Apsassin, Ryan Stickel, Cash Brinkworth, Cam MacKinnon, and Brighton Campbell, and the absence were glaring. “Huge” was how Huskies Assistant Coach Jeremy Clothier described the missing bodies. “You show up to a hockey game, and a couple of your guys aren’t here … they just don’t show up” he lamented. “It hurts the dressing room a little bit.”The Wheelers took full advantage, sending a relentless forecheck deep into the FSJ zone, and creating endless scoring chances. By the end of the first period, Grande Prairie was up 3-0, and while the Huskies took advantage of some powerplays in the second to climb back into the game, the Wheelers soon pulled away again.Grande Prairie got offensive contributions from almost the entire lineup, with Kyle Weegar and Cordell Shmyr both scoring a pair of goals, and Riley Halwa, Nathan Johnson and Jarvis Dawson also finding the back of the net. “They got shots” said Clothier of Grande Prairie’s success. “They drove the net, they stayed out of the penalty box, they out forechecked us, and they outworked us.”Advertisement Kole Norris led the way offensively for Fort St. John, recording two goals and an assist, while Robbie Sidhu also had a pair of goals. Ty Gullickson got his fourth consecutive start, and actually played remarkably well, despite conceding 8 goals. Kris Dika won his fourth game of the playoffs, after playing each game in Grande Prairie’s first-round sweep of Sexsmith. Cody Poggenpohl was one of the three NEBC and Yukon Tracker-Flyers to dress for the Huskies on the back-end. “I’m still little out of shape” he admitted afterwards, referring to a torn ligament that has kept him off the ice, adding “I think it was a lot of fun out there.” It was Poggenpohl’s first game with the Huskies, while his Midget teammates David Green and Jordan Walters had both played in the 2009 playoffs. Poggenpohl had his own theory on what led to the Huskies demise on Monday, suggesting simply “we couldn’t get the puck out.” The Huskies coaching staff seemed pleased with the performances of all three Midgets, giving all of them plenty of ice time in all situations. “They fit in good” said Jeremy Clothier, adding “they work hard, they’re physical, they know what they have to do out there.”Advertisement The final score was 8-4 in favour of the guests, with the series now shifting back to Grande Prairie for game two on Wednesday night. “We’ve got to get better game-preparation” advised Cody Poggenpohl, who is expecting to dress on Wednesday. “We walked into this game and no one was really into it … so next game we’ve just got to get into it more.”
The cardinal said he found it “amazing” that a U.S. federal court ruled in 2005 that the Dover, Pa., public school district could not teach the concept of “intelligent design” as part of its science class. The judge had said the theory, which says an intelligent supernatural force explains the emergence of complex life forms, was creationism in disguise. The cardinal said the Dover ruling meant schoolchildren would only be taught a materialistic, atheistic view of the origin of the universe without considering the idea that God played a role. “A truly liberal society would at least allow students to hear of the debate,” he said. Schoenborn’s comments came in a speech this week sponsored by the Homeland Foundation, a philanthropy that funds cultural and religious programs, many involving the Catholic Church. It is the latest in a series of remarks he has made on the topic. The cardinal, who is close to Pope Benedict XVI, has said he wants to correct what he calls a widespread misconception that the Catholic Church has given a blanket endorsement to Darwinism. NEW YORK – An influential Roman Catholic cardinal condemned a court decision Wednesday that barred a Pennsylvania school district from teaching “intelligent design” in biology class. Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn of Vienna, whose comments on evolution are closely followed, said in a lecture that restricting debate about Darwin’s theory of evolution amounts to censorship in schools and in the broader public. “Commonly in the scientific community every inquiry into the scientific weaknesses of the theory is blocked off at the very outset,” Schoenborn said of Darwinism. “To some extent, there prevails a type of censoring here of the sort for which one eagerly reproached the church in former times.” The “intelligent design” concept has been promoted most prominently by the Discovery Institute, a think tank in Seattle. Asked after the speech whether he was endorsing the institute’s beliefs, Schoenborn would say only, “Listen to my arguments.” “I don’t belong to any kind of boxes,” he said. The lecture was based on a talk Schoenborn gave in a private meeting in Italy last year with Benedict, a former professor.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Johnston has sent a petition of letters to the Minister in order to apply pressure to the situation.- Advertisement -“We need to do something to get the Minister of Finances’, Bill Morneau’s attention on these steel tariffs because these tariffs are killing us… In the meantime, we need to get this project going to create opportunities for everyone, from the upstream to the downstream, so we can make this project happen from Fort Nelson, Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, and down to Kitimat. A lot of opportunities are at stake here. We ended up getting 1,500 letters personally signed by people in the community. We put them into a Xerox box and I just mailed them to Bill Morneau’s office.”According to Johnston, his group is taking a proactive and positive approach when it comes to educating people on the need for natural resources and is currently working to build a network with communities to further gain support.In helping with educating and gaining support, the group will be presenting Independent Investigative Researcher Vivian Krause in Taylor on June 14.Advertisement
