Ancich cites differences in departure

first_imgThe Condors also forfeited one game for use of another player who was ruled ineligible for filing improper transfer paper work. It was determined in that case it had been an honest mistake by the parent involved. In neither situation was Ancich deemed responsible for any wrongdoing. Ancich said he hopes to be coaching football this fall, and is exploring several potential opportunities. In a brief interview Wednesday, he chose not to discuss them. “Everything got pretty crazy there for awhile,” he said. “I just want to put all that behind me and move on.” Applications for the position are being accepted through today. roger.murray@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “I came to Cal High to build a championship team, and do a lot of different things to upgrade the program. It wasn’t working.” Ancich, who coached the Condors for three seasons, made strides in the program, including the number of players involved and support from parents and student body. “When I got here, there were 86 to 100 players participating in all levels combined,” Ancich said. “Last season, we had more than 200 overall. We’ve increased everything … income, crowd and parent participation, number of players. “The spirit on campus definitely was up. People were talking about the team and the games. That was very nice to see. And the parents were great.” Ancich said he was not pressured into resigning and the decision solely was his. The Condors’ season was marred by off-field controversy concerning rumors and innuendos alleging undue influence in the transfer of a player to California. The player’s eligibility was cleared by the school and the CIF-Southern Section office. center_img A difference of opinion concerning the goals for the California High School football program is the reason given by Dusan Ancich for his recent resignation as head coach. “I think myself and the school (administrators) had different goals,” said Ancich, who tendered his resignation two weeks ago, although no official statement has been forthcoming from school officials. last_img read more

Eskom secures R1.6bn in loans

first_imgIn April, the World Bank announced that it would grant the utility a US$3.75-billion loan to co-finance the 4 800 MW Medupi coal-fired power plant in Limpopo as well as the country’s first large wind and concentrated power projects. “Eskom is on record saying that in order to plug the gap in electricity supply over the next few years, South Africa needs new base-load power stations like Medupi and Kusile. Funding to complete the Medupi station has recently been approved by the World Bank,” Eskom said. “We are working hard to resolve the funding issue because there is no viable option to replace Kusile,” O’Flaherty said. “Without the additional power from Kusile from 2014, there could be constraints on South Africa’s economic growth.” On Wednesday, Eskom said it had concluded a loan worth approximately R1-billion with Deutsche Bank which will be used to fund 85% of the turbine pump contract for the 1 352 MW Ingula pump storage scheme, which is situated on the boundary of KwaZulu-Natal and Free Sate. The second loan agreement, of approximately R600-million, arranged by Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank, will be used to fund the 4 800 MW Medupi power station construction in Lephalale, Limpopo. Eskom said that it was still committed to building Kusile and that it had been in discussions with the government to explore various funding options for the project. South African state power company Eskom has signed two loans with Deutsche Bank and Credit Agricole, worth approximately R1.6-billion, to fund construction at its Ingula pump storage scheme and Medupi power station. 26 August 2010 Eskom financial director Paul O’Flaherty pointed out that the company was a key contributor to the growth of the South African economy. “Funding is a critical enabler for the successful execution of the capacity expansion programme and export credit agency backed funding compliments our other sources of funding in the Eskom funding plan.” Securing funding Kusile still on track There are no plans to cancel the Kusile Power Station project, Eskom said, following media reports that the station, which is being built in Emalahleni, Mpumalanga, was going to be cancelled.
