Peza offers relief to ecozone firms Woods, ranked 51st, has not won a major title since the 2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 WGC Bridgestone Invitational.Woods briefly led the British Open on Sunday but shared sixth last month at Carnoustie, while Fleetwood shared 12th.“It’s something very special for quite a large number of players at the moment that he’s had his comeback and he’s playing well and we have that chance really, we could eventually be playing with Tiger on a Sunday coming down the stretch,” Fleetwood said.New British Open champion Francesco Molinari of Italy, who played alongside Woods in the final round at Carnoustie, remains impressed with the former world number one and his impact on so many careers.“He has changed the game for our generation,” Molinari said. “Being a teenager growing up playing golf, in my generation we were all looking up to him, especially around 2000, 2001, 2002. He was doing unbelievable things.ADVERTISEMENT Tiger Woods follows through on his approach shot on the 10th hole during the first round of the Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament at Firestone Country Club, Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018, in Akron, Ohio. (AP Photo/David Dermer)Ten years after his last major victory and five years since his last triumph, Tiger Woods is back on the prowl and a new generation of rivals couldn’t be more thrilled.When 98 of the world’s 100 top players tee off Thursday in the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club, there will be more than a few who hope to live out a boyhood dream and battle the 14-time major champion for glory on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT After winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk “It will be cool for him to be back and he obviously has a lot of great success in this tournament,” Thomas said. “But once we get out there, like most weeks, it will be business.”US star Jordan Spieth would complete a Career Grand Slam with a victory. he expects a short-game shootout.“You’ll see some hole outs by the look of this golf course,” he said. “There’s nothing wrong with that at all.

I don’t know what it is. I don’t know why I haven’t played the back nine as well as I have in the past,” Woods said. “If I had an answer to it, I would give it to you, but I really don’t know.”To Rory McIlroy, a four-time major winner who plays alongside Woods and defending champion Justin Thomas in the first two rounds, Woods has already achieved a great deal just being back.“There’s a lot of different layers to what Tiger has to go through to win again,” McIlroy said. “He has put himself in position. He had to learn how to move again. He had to learn how to swing. I mean, 18 months ago the guy couldn’t walk. He was in bed.”Experience only goes so far, McIlroy said, noting he hasn’t won a major since the 2014 PGA.“Even though he’s won 14 of these things, if you haven’t done it for awhile, you still have to re-learn a few things, and I think he’s going through that stage. But as we saw a few weeks ago, he’s right there, which is an unbelievable achievement.”‘A fantastic test’Thomas expects a frenzied atmosphere with throngs of spectators watching Woods and his group.

GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – The LB Energy Predators played their final game this past weekend in advance of the club’s first appearance at BC Female Midget Provincials next weekend.The Preds were in action in Grande Prairie this past weekend against the Female Midget AA Storm. Preds head coach Rob Larson said that the game was a good way to measure the team’s performance and improvement over their inaugural season, especially after losing to Grande Prairie early in the season. The AA Midget Female Storm went into the game as the first place team in the Alberta AA League, and were in for a bit of a shock.Just before the halfway mark of the first period, it was Ally Dancevic that would put the Preds on the board first, assisted by Payton Bowen and Madison Fell. Beth Connelly added to the Predators’ lead early in the second period to make it 2-0, assisted by Emily Bennett and Tess Herrington. Unfortunately, the Storm managed to bounce back in the second half of the stanza, scoring twice to even things up.- Advertisement -Forty five seconds into the third period, Taylor Bennett restored the Preds’ lead, assisted by Dancevic and Bowen. Things were looking good until the fourteen minute mark. Grande Prairie’s Camryn Stromberg scored her third of the game to once again make it a deadlocked match. Both goalies stood firm, with the final score 3-3.Larson says that he was impressed with his team’s performance, especially give that they were in essence a part-time team this season. He said that the girls’ high speed frustrated the Storm, who took the lion’s share of penalties in Saturday’s game.The LB Energy Predators will be in action starting next Monday for the BC Female AA Midget Provincials in Parksville, where they’ll compete in a pool against North Island, Richmond, and Kamloops.Advertisement
Brentwood All possibilities Re “Americans’ science knowledge growing” (Feb. 18): Theories and case studies to which Randolph Schmid refers as “pseudoscience” are investigated just as methodically by Mutual UFO Network international and independent scholars as crimes are systematically researched by law enforcement agencies worldwide. Peer-reviewed published papers, written by credentialed professors on paranormal subjects, are deliberately ignored and go unread. This head-in-the-sand ideology prevents others from working in tandem with those who already know there are more than just five senses. Science, in its broadest sense, must be willing to include all possibilities prior to exclusion of irrelevant ones. Otherwise, we are no wiser than the kings and emperors of old, who relied totally upon wizards and seers, because computers and repetitious laboratory data were unavailable in their Dark Ages. – Barbara Snowberger Hollywood What’s best for Ruby Re “Ruby the elephant deserves retirement” (Feb. 19): The decision to send Ruby to sanctuary is long overdue, and the price isn’t just right – it’s the right thing to do. I cannot imagine any compassionate human who would deny Ruby the opportunity to spend her final years in a place that caters to the needs of these gentle giants. The L.A. Zoo management needs to show it really does want to do what is best for the animals by allowing Ruby to retire and sending her to sanctuary. – Valerie Belt Pacific Palisades Self-inflicted wounds Re “Venezuela adds to Chavez powers” (Briefly, Feb. 1): The next order of business for our newly elected Congress should be to make it a law or at least a policy of the United States that “asylum shall not be granted to people who self-inflict upon not only themselves but future generations a dictatorship.” They celebrate today with Hugo Chavez, and 10 years from now they will be at our door crying about how hard life is back in Venezuela. Bad choices should not be rewarded. Reap what you have sown. Woe unto thee. – Eloy L. Mendoza Pacoima It’s not Britney What a coincidence! Last week Meningiomamommas.org, an online information and support group for those with meningioma brain tumors, started posting post-op pictures of shaved heads of members so those with upcoming surgeries would know what to expect. Guess who my heroes are? – Sandy Kaufman North Hollywood Banning cars Every day we hear about car bombers running rampant in various parts of Iraq and killing many innocent people. Sending more troops there won’t solve the problem. Perhaps if all cars were banned from being used and everyone was made to walk, the deaths of innocent Iraqi civilians and coalition troops would decrease because these suicide murderers would get tired of walking and lugging heavy loads of explosives. – Gene Goodwein Van Nuys According to George “Government isn’t reason; it’s not eloquence; it’s force. Like fire, it’s a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” Does that sound like some anti-authority radical? It’s from one of America’s greatest patriots – George Washington. I’m sure it can apply to government at all levels. Majority can be as bad as a tyrant. – Ken Garrison Rosamond160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Re “HOV lane on 405 gains big wheels” (Feb. 21): Has anyone ever seen more local, state and federal politicians all united behind one cause than over the funding for a car-pool lane on the 405 Freeway? Then again, has anyone ever seen a politician without a tax-paid driver chauffeuring him or her all over town? Car-pool lanes and politicians have one thing in common: Neither works for the greater good of all. It’s time to restore democracy on our public freeway system and make the car-pool lane equally accessible to all motorists alike. – Robert L. Rosebrock

He may be from Co Monaghan but he’s of Donegal stock! Michael Coll of The Tax Clinic is well known to many for helping people with their tax returns as well as his amateur dramatic efforts. This is his Donegal.What is your favourite place in Donegal and why?Portnablagh – I spent many a summer as a child staying with my granny and grandad who used to spoil me rotten and take me down to the beach everyday to fish for crabs. It’s such a special place that I even proposed to my wife on that very same beach. If you could change one thing about Donegal what would it be?Better public transport. A train service to Dublin at minimum.Who is the one person that you look up to and why?My parents – and in particularly my mother. She reared 6 boys and our house was crazy growing up. I have only 2 and can’t imagine having 6 to look after. What’s your happiest Christmas memory in Donegal?For me it was 2015. We had our first child (Jenny) in March of that year and going out to see Santa with her made me feel like a child all over again. We now have 2 kids – another little boy Ben and I cant wait for the excitement on Christmas morning.What has been Donegal’s proudest moment in recent years?There have been some great moments – but my father gave me his All – Ireland ticket to go and see Sam being lifted in 2012. But let’s not mention football – once a Monaghan man always a Monaghan man.If you found a magic wand that allowed you to grant one wish, whatwould it be? To spend a little more time with my nana. She was a quirky interesting woman and we named our first born “Jenny” after her.What is your favourite Donegal-made product?Football Special – we couldn’t buy it in Monaghan growing up so it was the first purchase as soon I landed at my granny’s house every summer.Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why? He has been mentioned a few times before on here but there is no denying that Daniel O Donnell has been great at promoting the county.What has been the biggest compliment you’ve ever received?I just turned 40 at the end of September and was told by a lovely old lady that I still looked about 20 – my wife says she probably didn’t have her glasses on!Who is your favourite Donegal sportsperson of all time?I must say I really admire Jason Black. He is competing at the highest level as an endurance athlete and this takes a huge commitment to train probably 6 to 7 days per week. I have never met him so if he is reading this maybe he could contact me to go for a pint or even a water!What is your favourite Donegal restaurant?Cafe Davitt on the High Road – very close to our office. Fantastic food and friendly service.What is your favourite Donegal saying or expression?Waynes! I am originally from Emyvale in Co.Monaghan. My mother comes from Portnablagh and father comes from Carrigart. My parents moved to Monaghan over 50 years ago as my father was a member of the Gardai. I moved up here permanently in 2005 and to this day my 5 brothers and their wifes laugh ever time they hear my wife talking about the “Waynes”.What is the biggest challenge facing the people of Donegal today?Youth unemployment. We have taken in a few college students for work experience and they are unfortunately leaving the county to find work.What is your favourite food that you associate with Donegal?Gallaghers Bakery Ardara make some fantastic breads.Is there anything that really annoys you about Donegal or its people?To be honest – No. The people are friendly and sure the weather is great!Do you have a favourite local band?I still love seeing the Goats Don’t Shave when they do the odd gig. I have their current album Turf Man Blues playing in the car at the minute.If you had a million euro to improve something in Donegal what would it be?Many people would probably say the roads – but a million euro wouldn’t go far. I would put every penny towards improving our mental health services and making sure that it is available 24/7 to anybody that needs access. People suffering with mental health issues just don’t have them 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday – so proper access to adequately trained people is vital.From a personal point of view I suffered myself with low moods for a period of time and found that the best medicine for me was to change my diet and get exercise – so now I go to the gym at least 3 times per week at 6am and try to eat healthy 70% of the time but would never miss the takeaway at the weekend.Where’s the most unusual place you’ve logged on to Donegal Daily?Montreal in Canada.Is there anything about Donegal that you are very proud of?(example: our culture/language)The people – my parents both moved away 50 years ago but keep coming back every few weeks to stay in their house in Portnablagh. They have never lost their love for the county.What is the most rewarding thing about what you do?Helping people out when they are starting a new business. Starting a new business is a brave thing to do and comes with lots of advantages and disadvantages and as accountants and chartered tax consultants we can at least take one worry of their mind when it comes to the tax side of things. We had a young 16 year old man in a few weeks back who has just started his own little business so the country is in safe hands when we have entrepreneurs as young as this with great ideas.My Donegal with Michael Coll of The Tax Clinic! was last modified: December 28th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Michael CollMY DONEGALThe Tax Clinic

Donegal County Council were left baffled this week when a surfboard-like object was removed from water to a Donegal beach. It was big too, appearing to measure roughly six foot in length. The unusual discovery was made by volunteers of the Irish Coast Guard on Wednesday (September 11) from the beach in Ballyheirnan, Fanad.The object, which has since been identified as a wave glider, is described as having a full-length solar panel on its upper side and what appears to be a recording unit housed in a plastic casing.The council are keen to return the item to its owner as they might be keen to retrieve any information stored in the unit. Donegal County Council said: “We need your help!!“We are trying to find the owners of this unusual object which was removed from the beach in Ballyheirnan, Fanad on September 11 by volunteers from the Irish Coast Guard.”If this is your wave glider or you know who it belongs to, you can contact 074 91 53900.Mystery object is a wave glider but who owns it? was last modified: September 18th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
