Green wins gold on Anzac Day

first_imgAnother hot, humid day may be the reason that the scores were not good today as indicated by the score of 34 points which gave Craig Green the gold medal, just relegating Peter Bird to second place on count back.  A surprised Alan Bartlett rang the bell back at the Billabong after coming in third with 33 points, edging Gentry Harrington on count back.Birdie ‘2’s are hard to come by at Phoenix and this week was no exception, with Thiery Petrement scooping the pool with the only one of the day.Wednesday, April 27, Green Valley – Monthly MedalIt is difficult imagine a golf course in Thailand that is not suffering from the recent high temperatures and absence of rain.  Regardless of how much water comes through the sprinkler system when it is working correctly (which many sprinkler heads at Green Valley are not), this does not compensate for some good, steady rain.  Green Valley is no different from any other course and there is evidence everywhere that the greens staff are having a hard time maintaining their usual high standards, with various shades of brown covering the entire course.The Courtyard team of Helmut, Dave, Jeff and Chris.Brian Chapman, who started his own financial consultancy business recently, Haven Consultants based in Nern Plubwan, is a long term supporter of the Billabong year-long competition, for the trophies are sponsored by his company.The monthly medal is something you either look forward to or approach with some trepidation.  Auk Engelkes came into the latter category today, trying to remain incognito by wearing a very peculiar  hat, his reasoning being that Superman can get away with wearing glasses so why not.  It did not work or help his golf.  Thankfully, it (the hat) is only exposed to the light of day on the King of Nederland’s birthday.A cooling breeze had the effect of reducing the temperature, well, from 40 degrees plus to 37 degrees but the unrelenting heat did not stop Miss Da from winning consecutive competitions with a fine net 65, winning by a fair margin from Miss Nu with a net 69 and Miss Karn in third with a net 70.Da, Nu and Karn with Brian Chapman.Many scores from the male contingent were the sort of performances that make you want to go to a small room and consider whether you have an aptitude for golf, but four were happy with their day’s tally.  Jack Piercefield occupied fourth place with a net 70, losing to Freddy Starbeck on the same score.  Lloyd Shuttleworth, in a hurry to catch a flight to Iraq, came in second with net 68 but John Deardon will play in the final next March after posting a fine net 67.The greens had recovered from the top dressing and there were three 2s, coming from Miss Saipin, Miss Yui and Barry Copestake.Friday, April 29, Plutaluang – ScramblePlaying our monthly scramble at the Plutaluang golf course and apart from a lot of us missing the turn under the railway bridge everything went smoothly.  We were off to an early start and with 14 groups it was an absolute doddle for all to get out on the course.The golf course was in fantastic condition and very green with no areas of brown patches anywhere.  Playing North and West loops we got a little respite from the oppressive heat from the last few weeks and with a gentle breeze blowing it made for a good day out.The scores were all in the low net 60s, with Ed Horrock, Don Hachey, Rick Hiatt and Ted Gardiner taking the third place with net 61.  Next came Team Billabong consisting of the colourful Greg Ritchie, Bill Marsden, Paul Greenaway and Bob Philp taking second with net 60.6, but everyone was outscored by the team from the Courtyard of Helmut Hebstreit, Dave Done, Jeff North and Chris, with a fantastic 57.8.  That’s a great round of golf guys! PSC Golf from The Billabong Golf BarMonday, April 25, Phoenix – StablefordApril 25 is a memorable day for Australians and New Zealanders for this is commemorated as ANZAC day.  This date in 1915 marks the occasion when soldiers from both countries, joined others from the commonwealth, to invade Gallipoli and lost more than 8,000 men.  ANZAC day has, over the years, been extended to embrace all those Australians and New Zealanders that have given their lives in various conflicts and wars throughout the world.Anyone passing the Billabong Bar at 6 a.m. this morning would have seen 25 men standing with their heads bowed for the traditional dawn service – the landing at Gallipoli started at dawn – to have a simple service of remembrance.  The Colonel – Bob Pearce – recited the ‘Ode of Remembrance’, the flag was lowered by Lloyd Shuttleworth to the sounds of the ‘Last Post’ and raised again to ‘Reveille’ and the solemnity of the occasion touched everyone present.  A cup of coffee and a bacon sandwich followed before leaving for Phoenix.The Australian flag flies proudly over the Billabong Bar on ANZAC Day.last_img read more

Scoring good for some, abysmal for others

first_imgThe course was in great condition with fast greens and in reality there was nothing you could fault, although it was a slow day out there, and hot until the breeze came up on the back nine and made it a pleasant day. PSC Golf from BillabongFriday, Feb. 14th Burapha C & D StablefordC and D at Burapha for a change and what a difference it was to play. It is a much harder 18 holes of golf than the A and B loops. We had 5 groups playing and the scoring was very good for some and abysmal for others.We had a count back for the minor placings, all on 35 points, with Steve the consistent Giles taking 4th place. Gerry Grocott took 3rd and Nial Stuart took 2nd.The French connection came out with the cream of the crop, Thiery Petrement, taking the top spot with a fine 38 points. That is a great score around this course.There were two 2s coming from Thiery Petrement and Andrew Woodall.last_img read more

El Centro to honor 4 for community contributions

first_img“I feel very honored,” Ramirez said, “there are so many Latinos in Pasadena doing so many great things.” Tickets for the event are $175, and Ertll said they hope to raise $100,000 toward the center’s annual $500,000 budget. The fundraiser will be held Sept. 20 at the Pasadena Westin Hotel, 191 N. Los Robles Ave. [email protected] (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4482160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PASADENA – El Centro de Accion Social, the city’s oldest and largest Latino community organization, will honor four Pasadena notables at its annual fundraiser on Sept. 20. Being honored for their contributions to the community are Marge Wyatt, a longtime child and family advocate; restaurateur Abel Ramirez, owner of El Portal in the Playhouse District; former three-term Pasadena Councilwoman Joyce Streator; and Dolores Hickambottom, former local representative for state Sen. Jack Scott, D-Pasadena. The theme of next month’s event, “Changing Lives Through Community Service and Education,” makes keynote speaker Ramon Cortines an ideal choice, said El Centro Executive Director Randy Ertll. “Ray has quite a legacy in Pasadena and beyond. He’s become something of a living legend,” Ertll said of the former Pasadena Unified School District superintendent, who went on to head New York City schools and was interim superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Cortines, now Los Angeles deputy mayor for education, youth and families, has a sound take on the role of education in the community, Ertll said. “It’s our main focus, something we do day in and day out,” Ertll said of the center’s programs for children, teens and seniors. “Public education is a timely issue, with charter and private schools and test scores so high profile.” Wyatt, who was on the school board and school board president during Cortines’ tenure as Pasadena’s schools superintendent, said maybe El Centro thought his presence made it a “nice time to say thank-you.” “I’ve spent a good many years working to improve public schools and child care services – that’s what I’m interested in,” said Wyatt, who helped develop city and state childcare plans several years ago. Ramirez, who opened El Portal after many years at the Huntington Hotel – now the Ritz-Carlton, Huntington Hotel & Spa – and as general manager at Caltech’s Athenaeum, is being honored for his entrepreneurship. last_img read more

Santa Susana Field Lab nears Superfund status

first_imgThe Santa Susana Field Lab should be listed as a high-priority cleanup, with closer scrutiny by federal authorities of the site’s extensive chemical and radioactive contamination, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s regional office announced Friday. After a seven-month review of the 2,850-acre hilltop site, the EPA’s regional team found that contamination at the site poses enough of a threat to human health and the environment to be added to the National Priorities List, also called the Superfund program. Lab watchdogs and neighbors have pushed for Superfund status – which is reserved for the nation’s worst contaminated sites – that would give the EPA authority to conduct a new investigation and oversee cleanup at the lab. “For 20 years, people have been asking for this,” said Dan Hirsch of the Committee to Bridge the Gap. “A dry cleaner in my community is a Superfund site. How could this nuclear facility not be a Superfund site?” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsLocated in the hills between Simi Valley and Chatsworth, the Santa Susana Field Lab opened in the 1940s for government nuclear energy research and rocket-engine testing. Those operations are now over, but the work left toxic and radioactive contamination in the soil and groundwater at the site. The cleanup has been contentious, with lawsuits and battles over how much pollution – particularly radiologically contaminated soil – lab owner Boeing and the Department of Energy can leave on the property. Under federal law, the Energy Department can supervise its own site cleanup, unless the site has Superfund status, in which case the EPA will oversee the cleanup. The agency had reviewed just the chemical pollution at the lab in 1987 and determined that the site didn’t score high enough on the hazard-ranking system. However, community activists continued to push the EPA for Superfund status, which they believed would ensure a more thorough decontamination than the Energy Department’s self-supervised cleanup. “The DOE and (Boeing) want to spend a minimum amount of money, so they use the lowest level of cleanup that they think they can get away with,” said Sheldon Plotkin, who has monitored the cleanup for the Southern California Federation of Scientists. The EPA Region 9 sent a letter to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday asking for his opinion and agreement to federal oversight of the lab cleanup. His office said it is now reviewing the recommendation. If the governor agrees, the EPA regional office will recommend that the Washington, D.C., office grant Superfund status. Still, the governor could disagree and instead request that the field lab’s chemical cleanup remain under state control. The U.S. Department of Energy has authority over the radiological cleanup. “I think the site is definitely polluted enough to merit Superfund status,” said state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, D-Los Angeles, who said she hopes the governor will agree with the EPA recommendation. “I like the idea of EPA oversight. It helps protect the state of California.” But Superfund status could possibly affect negotiations currently under way between the governor and Boeing over the site. Earlier this year, the governor signed legislation requiring the strictest cleanup at the field lab – culminating an 18-year controversy since the Daily News disclosed toxic contamination of the research site. At the same time, he proposed an agreement in which Boeing could possibly clean up to a lesser standard in exchange for dedicating the land for open space. The company and state officials are now negotiating over appropriate standards. Boeing spokeswoman Blythe Jameson said Superfund status shouldn’t affect the cleanup. “The bill and letter of intent already requires that we clean up to California Superfund status, which is a similar process.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
