Jarin takes full responsibility for NU Bulldogs’ failed UAAP campaign

first_imgView comments The loss brought the Bulldogs to a 3-9 record and eliminated them from the Final Four with two more games to spare in their schedule, and head coach Jamike Jarin took full responsibility for the failed campaign.“It’s been very disappointing this year, but again, I take full responsibility for it,” said Jarin. “We have a young team, so we just have to be patient with all the things that we need to do. Of course we could’ve done better.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“I take all the blame.”Jarin’s time with the Bulldogs hasn’t been as fruitful as his previous tenures with San Beda and especially Ateneo where he became a multi-title coach with the Blue Eaglets.

Residents oppose Aera development proposal, want to see land preserved

first_img“Land acquisitions for the sake of conservation are very feasible,” said Misty Herrin, spokeswoman for the Nature Conservancy, an international conservation organization. “California voters made a huge gesture in support of conservation when they passed Proposition 84.” Some residents have expressed their opposition to Aera’s deal, and others are skeptical that Diamond Bar’s golf course could bring more homes. “The potential exists for a home on every single fairway,” said Mike Popovec, a member of the Rowland Heights Community Coordinating Council. DeStefano, however, said that Diamond Bar is not interested in building homes.

ROWLAND HEIGHTS – Residents fighting development plans bordering Diamond Bar, Walnut, Rowland Heights and La Habra said they want to buy the land and preserve it. Nearly 75 people attended a meeting Monday hosted by the Rowland Heights Community Coordinating Council and heard two proposals by Aera Energy, formerly Shell Oil, and the city of Diamond Bar. Aera’s plan calls for the construction of 3,600 homes on 3,000 acres. The other project, which borders parts of Aera’s property, is proposed by Diamond Bar for the construction of a golf course on 270 acres, said Diamond Bar City Manager Jim DeStefano. The course would be near the southwest portion of Diamond Bar, in Rowland Heights, and would replace the current course. Diamond Bar wants to develop the northwest course for commercial use. “There is opportunity in the area to generate more retail,” DeStefano said Monday. “We are looking to see whether such a project has merit.” While many people at the meeting said they would like to see all the land preserved, Aera Vice President George Bayse has said that would not be in the best interest of the company. Plus, the plan already calls for half of the land to be set aside for open space, Bayse said. Claire Schlotterbeck, executive director of Hills for Everyone, a nonprofit organization, said there is federal and state money available that could be used to buy Aera’s land.Conservationists said there is plenty of funding available to buy land that would be preserved as open space. last_img read more
