If I did something, I’m sure they will call me out, but they didn’t.”Emotions were on a high in the best-of-5 series and Ferrer thinks that Rice’s inability to adapt to PBA’s level of physicality led to his demise in what was an all-important Game 4 for TNT.“I didn’t say anything and I was just physical. I think he wasn’t really able to adjust to the style of basketball here,” he said.Ferrer and the Gin Kings were able to close out the KaTropa, 115-105, and advance to the best-of-7 finals against Meralco.ADVERTISEMENT PH finishes 4th in Asian Baseball Championship Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio 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 “I didn’t do anything.

Kuru Kururu residents forced to fix access roads

first_imgThe residents of Kuru Kururu, Linden-Soesdyke Highway are now forced to fix their main access roads after Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan reportedly told them his hands were tied until the next budget.The upgrade works to the village’s main roads began about one week ago by public-spirited citizens of the village’s Business Association.Kuru Kururu Small Business Association Vice President William Ramlall told Guyana Times on Saturday, “This is our second intervention on the road. It started a week ago where we did some work and today we concluded the second part of it. We dealt with the most deplorable parts of the road.”The members of the Kuru Kururu Small Business Association, he said, are burdened to see the roads become developed, especially since they have big plans for their Business Expo in August.He added that the project has made a grave difference for not only drivers but also pedestrians in the area. According to him, the organisation pulled off a barbecue to raise funds for the initiative and was able to solicit most of the materials from villagers and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport Corporation.The work, he said, was all volunteer-based, except for the work done by the machine operators since they were paid from the monies raised.The main roads in the village were previously lined with potholes deep enough to severely damage vehicles. Several drivers have been using their initiative to make use of alternative passageways, meanwhile the bus drivers who are required to use this route have been complaining bitterly.A member of the Community Development Council (CDC) said the Communities Ministry met with the team and they were made to understand that the village would likely have to wait until next year when provisions would be made for rehabilitative road works in the 2019 Budget.last_img read more
