Manchester City’s friendly against the Houston Dynamo has been cancelled due to an unplayable pitch at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Texas. Houston had been hit with widespread flooding after record rainfall in the days leading up to the match and on Thursday the Major League Soccer club announced the match was off. “Tonight’s BBVA Compass Dynamo Charities Cup has been cancelled,” said a statement on the Dynamo’s website. “Late this afternoon, officials determined that the field did not meet their expectations and therefore have cancelled the match.” The match against Owen Coyle’s Dynamo was one of two on City’s post-season tour of North America. Manuel Pellegrini’s side beat Toronto FC 1-0 on Wednesday with a goal from youngster George Evans. Pellegrini said in a City statement: “We are bitterly disappointed for our fans, and for those of Houston Dynamo, that the match has been cancelled. “We had travelled to Houston from Toronto in anticipation of a great game of football and we recognise many fans have also travelled long distances. “We thank the entire Houston Dynamo team for their efforts in preparing for the match and regret that the game could not be played.” Press Association
LANCASTER – A rising star on the local lecture circuit is Richard Grego, whose blueprint for a happy marriage is meant to teach couples how to find true and eternal love. Grego, who lived around the world as a boy with his family and now is a court interpreter in three languages, speaks at clubs and churches about how femininity and masculinity are key factors in “the building of God- guided choices for lifetime bliss.” “The path to this discovery has taken me a lifetime of contemplation, observation, experience, faith and the desire to finally understand the true nature of the love between a man and a woman,” said Grego, 55, of Lancaster. Grego believes a couple must find the “spatial-temporal” aspects of male and female. Space is the realm of the male while the female deals in time, he says. The father of three daughters and a son, he is single at the moment, but he harbors the certainty in his mind that his true mate will be directed to him at just the right time and place, if it is God’s will. “That may not be in my future,” he said, “but if she’s out there for me, if I’m patient and wait, I’ll find her.” Grego, who speaks English, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, has been a Superior Court interpreter for 30 years. He loves his work and, through some of it, has seen the devastation caused by the marital failures. “Because of my own mistakes, I understand what is going on with them and it saddens me. I desperately want to help everyone in those situations to turn their lives around and have happy relationships,” he said. He’s available for lectures and seminars.

He will then formulate in his mind where he will take her but he suggests that she set the time. He likes to choose the place because that’s where he’s coming from (spatial). Usually she is good with that because it leaves her in her own temporal element,” he said. “A woman must be truly feminine and a man must be truly masculine in order for them to achieve a love-nurturing goal,” he said. “Each has power in his or her own right and the necessary balance does not come from equality but from equivalence. The quality of a relationship is what one makes of it.” Grego was born Dec. 18, 1950, in Covina, but grew up in Costa Rica, Turkey and Nicaragua. His Italian father worked for the United States Department of Health and traveled with his family to those countries to help eradicate malaria. From the time of Richard’s birth, he spoke Italian to his son and exposed him to the wonders of opera. When he was in his twenties, Grego’s parents retired in Costa Rica and he repatriated. “I’ve been married and divorced and had several relationships but I didn’t understand what it was that I wanted to do with my life until I realized how shallow I had been, confessed my shortcomings and asked for God’s forgiveness and guidance,” he said.
