Aggravating an already irate citizenry

first_imgDear Editor,Each time the Town Clerk of Georgetown dispatches a long-winded vacuous epistle to the letters column of the local dailies, it serves no other purpose but to aggravate further, an already irate citizenry. One wonders if it is deliberate, to let them know that he can and will do whatever he pleases, and they can ‘Like it or Lump it.’The Town Clerk knows that the most recent purported ‘election of Mayor and Deputy Mayor’ would better be referred to as the ‘selection of Mayor and Deputy Mayor’ which is done by a caucus of select Councillors prior. And therefore, to say that the Deputy Mayor was not returned by virtue of a democratic process is simply egregious.In fact, the denial of the ‘No-Confidence Motion against the Town Clerk’ which allows him to remain in his seat and spout a lot of baloney, is the epitome of autocracy instead of democracy.Undoubtedly the Alliance For Change has been kicked to the curb at City Hall, and every intelligent person knows that. But the biggest and sickest joke so far must be his statement that it is public knowledge that within recent times some members of the Council have been using their voices to disseminate inaccurate information and even fake news to adversely affect the image and reputation of the Council, to erode public confidence and trust in its work, and to undermine its authority, while others have been making efforts not only to improve the work of the Council but also the quality of life in the local communities. If this gentleman truly believes that persons are not aware of the graft, corruption, venality, nepotism and financial mismanagement that is ongoing at City Hall, then he is disconnected, lost and out of touch with reality.He then goes on to say that three years ago the city was left to rot. Does he not see that from the City Hall Building, Georgetown to everything else the Council has control over continues to rot and rot even more now? And was he not working right there at City Hall for the last 30 years when the city was purportedly left to rot? He further says that they turned around the fortunes of the city. This guy has quite a sense of humour. It was only a few contractors, a few officials of the Council and their relatives whose fortunes were turned around, not the city.Then he talks about ‘new and improved conditions of Georgetown’. What is he talking about? The Stabroek Market wharf that has collapsed or the market clocks that are not working? The old and unhygienic abattoir? the City Police training school that is in rack and ruins, the unfinished Kitty Market, the bad roads and poor street lighting, and the robberies around the dirty and leaking municipal markets? Wake up and smell the coffee Town Clerk.Sincerely,Melissa Chiulast_img read more

Robert Sirleaf Receives Petition, Yet to Decide

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s “beloved son,” Robert Sirleaf, remains undecided as to whether he will contest the senatorial race despite receiving a petition to stand in the ensuing election.The National Elections Commission (NEC) is to hold Liberia’s first ever, Special Senatorial Election since the coming into force of the 1986 Constitution.The NEC has set the polling date for the second Tuesday in October of this year (2014).Mr. Sirleaf received a petition Monday in Monrovia to stand in October’s poll as a candidate for Montserrado County.The petitioners, under the banner of the Montserrado Redemption Squad. headed by Lasanna Fofana, said they believed that the President’s Special Advisor has the ability to deliver in the areas of education, youth empowerment, and community development, which he said “Montserrado County is desperately in need of at the moment.”Reading the petition at the Clara Town football field, Fofana indicated that community development programs initiated by the President’s son were the determining factor in their choice of the former National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) board chair.“Petitioning him for the senate is a gateway to the long term development agenda of the country,” Fofana said.Receiving the petition, Robert Sirleaf described it as a level of responsibility presented to him by the petitioners that needs to be treated with caution.“I have not made a final decision on this but I will take it to bed tonight and ask God. I believed this petition is about nine years of adequate representation of the people. I know tomorrow will be better,” Robert asserted.He noted that positive approach to things remains his hallmark.  He encouraged his petitioners to remain proactive and positive in addressing issues in the country.Though undecided, Monday’s petitioning program confirms the prospect of his entering the senatorial race, which will in turn test his popularity should he intend to succeed his mother in the near future.If Robert should win the senatorial seat, political commentators pointed out; “His mother will certainly tutor him to serve as her successor to run the affairs of the state in order to keep a strong grip on power.”Mr. Sirleaf has no political party at the moment.  This means he will file his papers to Electoral body as an independent candidate. Hee is competing for the Montserrado Senate seat against soccer icon George M. Weah of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), Liberty Party’s Benjamin Sanvee and the candidate fielded by his mother own Unity Party,  Alue Silla.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

“A Very Distinguished Class”

first_imgMr. and Mrs. Kenneth Y. Best (far left) take Mr. Alexander B. Cummings (3rd from left) on a tour of the Stanton B. Peabody Memorial Library at the Daily Observer. Ms. Satta C. Sonie (right) a professional librarian, gives a brief introduction about the library.Cummings describes BWI Class of ’59Alexander B. Cummings, the political leader of the opposition Alternative National Congress (ANC) described Booker Washington Institute (BWI) Class of ’59 as a very distinguished class that produced many great people, some them now living in the diaspora, while others, among them, Dr. Kenneth Y. Best, a veteran journalist, are in the country contributing to the Liberia’s development.Mr. Cummings made the statement on Thursday, April 25, 2019, when he paid a courtesy visit to the Stanton B. Peabody Library at the Daily Observer newspaper in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.His description of the BWI Class of ’59 came about when he was informed about e-book Dr. Best recently published, entitled, “The Melting Pot: History of the BWI Class of ’59.”He said not only are the members of the class of ’59 making headways, but their children too are also emulating their parents’ examples by significantly impacting the society.Mr. Cummings named Richelieu Dennis Jr., and Nyema N. Tubman, two children of the BWI Class of ’59 as the highest contributors to his development objective.Richelieu Dennis Jr. is the son of the late Richelieu Dennis Sr., and Nyema N. Tubman, the son of Cllr. Robert Tubman, who married a Swedish woman and lives in Sweden with his family.In a related development, Mr. Cummings has pledged to help digitize the Liberian Observer’s library for the benefit of the students, and the public to do research.Dr. Best e-book, The History of the Class of ’59, was launched Thursday, April 18, 2019 on the Daily Observer newspaper’s website.The e-book recounts the most memorable events of BWI Class of 1959 in a riveting story-telling fashion.It highlights the most distinguished accomplishments of the members of this unique and extraordinary class. Even their children went on to accomplish greater feats as is also recounted in the book.Members of the class hailed from across the Liberian landscape. As such, the old “Country-Congau divide” is rendered null and void in this e-book – which is why the class is described as a “melting pot., but for Mr. Cummings, it was “a very distinguished class.”Members of the class did not only represent their various counties, but also distinguished themselves, and excelled in their various academic and professional careers that included architects, lawyers, businessmen and women, engineers of various kinds, pilots, distinguished military personnel, and even a presidential candidate, Cllr. Winston Tubman, were born out of the BWI Class of ’59.Several Liberian academics have commented on the book. In a moving foreword to the book, Sister Mary Laurene Browne, President of Stella Maris Polytechnic in Monrovia, writes:“The Melting Pot: History of the Class of’59 should be in the hands of today’s Liberian students so that the implications of scholarship can be thoroughly valued.As an educator, it is my desire to see our education system to sit on the old mat to effectively plait the new.”African Methodist Episcopal University President, Joseph T. Isaac, also a BWI alumnus (Class of 1982), describes the Class of ‘59 as one of the nation builders:“Everyone with interest in vocational education in Liberia, who wishes to understand the specific blend of academic formula employed by the BWI in teaching, training and creating top leaders for Liberia’s national development agenda, wish no more; because in this book, KYB has unpacked the density and unmasked the mystery with this story of the Class of 1959… Kenneth Best, in his classic storytelling posture, describes how this group of intelligent and committed students from various backgrounds went from being complete strangers to each other at BWI in 1956, to become lifetime friends and colleagues, and major actors on the national stage.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Hollis Davis Story – A life in Mining

first_imgHer journey into a life of mining commenced with her husband. By constantly accompanying her husband into the interior, Hollis David developed a love for mining. That love saw her setting up her own mining operation. But, aside from the love for mining, Hollis saw it as an opportunity to provide a better life for her family.Hollis would go on to say, “I took the opportunity, and was not disappointed”.While the issue of discrimination has always been a topical one, Hollis has not found it to be a bother, since she has always maintained a positive posture, holding firm to the belief of “mutual” respect.Responding to whether she gained from the support of mentors and/or sponsors, Hollis reasoned that her spouse has “always had my back through thick and thin”.But as with any career, there will be challenges. The mother of four listed dishonesty and the plight that comes with mining as two typical challenges that she has encountered for the years she’s been in the sector. Those challenges were overcome by putting better management systems in place and placing additional focus on the career path she has embraced.Futuristically, Hollis dreams of setting up her own business; one that specialises in the retail of mining equipment and spare parts used in mercury-free mining.But apart from the challenges and successes, Hollis said, “I wish someone had told me how challenging it (is) to manage a workforce in the mining sector”.However, to any young woman contemplating venturing into mining, Hollis says, “Go for it! It will be challenging, but (you have to) be strong”.Hollis doesn’t sit on any board, since she travels very often in and out of the interior. She doesn’t have the time for that, but if time were to permit, she would happily do so.Incorporating best practices within her mining operation is paramount. The medium scale miner says she ensures all workers wear safety gear, and there are proper “tail end ponds”. “I make sure that the mercury is burnt in a proper place too”, she added.The Guyana Women Miners Organisation (GWMO) member encourages all members of this organisation to actively engage in best practices and sustainable mining.Hollis is most passionate about travelling to various parts of Guyana and waking up to the fresh morning breeze in the “land of many waters”.Interestingly, Hollis manages being a miner and a mother just fine. “I balance it well. I make sure that my children are well taken care of. Likewise, the business; I make sure everything goes well with it, too”, she says.Hollis enjoys spending quality time with her family, which includes taking her children out, and cooking for them.last_img read more

Beverly Hills to increase free parking today

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat Kings“We have to do everything we can to show the people that shop here that we welcome them,” City Councilman Frank Fenton told City News Service. “We need to compete with all these other shopping centers that are around. One thing that I learned over the years is that people want to shop where they’re welcome. It’s not the money, it’s the thought they have to pay for parking.” Mayor Jimmy Delshad called the return of two-hour free parking “a win- win for the city, merchants and residents.” “It’s a great step for the city of Beverly Hills,” Delshad said. The mayor also said a recent series of meetings in New York City with executives of retailers with stores in Beverly Hills had factored into his support for reinstating the additional hour of free parking. “A lot of them (stores) have their own valet parking, but validating their parking is costing them a lot more than it would cost if people have two- hour free parking,” Delshad said. The city’s parking enterprise fund finances parking structure improvements. Delshad said increasing the length of free parking will cost that fund $1.7 million in this fiscal year. But the city government “will find other ways” to compensate for that loss, Fenton said. “We have plenty of cash in reserve, so I’m not worried about that,” he added.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BEVERLY HILLS – Starting today, Beverly Hills is once again offering two hours of free parking in four city-owned structures to lure more shoppers to the area. The city had reduced the length of free parking to one hour a year ago to compensate for lower income from sales and hotel taxes. However, complaints from residents and merchants prompted the City Council to vote 5-0 Nov. 13 to reinstitute two hours of free parking. The extended free parking will be available at structures located at 216 S. Beverly Drive; 345 N. Beverly Drive; 9510 Brighton Way and 438 N. Beverly Drive/439 N. Canon Drive. last_img read more

Jurgen Klopp reveals new setback for Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho

first_img1 Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho could miss the start of the season due to an Achilles injury.The Frenchman discovered last week that he is free to play for the club again after UEFA dropped a doping charge against him.Sakho missed out on the Europa League final and selection for his country at Euro 2016 due to the case, caused by his use of a fat-burning substance.The 26-year-old is now eager to get his career back on track, but it could be a while before he returns to action with Jurgen Klopp revealing the centre-back is still struggling with a long-standing problem.“Mama had a little issue with his Achilles when he was playing, one day on, one off, this kind of thing,” Reds boss Klopp said.“When he had his little ‘break’ he used the time to have a little bit of treatment and that now means another three or four weeks before he can train again.“There was no surgery, he is just not about to train at the moment. He has got some rehab of course and it’s not too good a situation for him, for us, everybody.“It’s not important what I could say because everyone thinks the same. He’s here, he’s not available at the moment but he is doing rehab. We will see how he reacts to that and then when he can play again.”Sakho has been out of action since the Merseyside derby on April 20 after a sample he gave following the Europa League tie with Manchester United was found to have a fat-burning substance in it.It is believed the France international may be considering his legal options having been cleared to return to the game.“I cannot say too much as a manager. I don’t know exactly what will happen now from Mama’s side or UEFA’s side,” Klopp added.“But as a human being I can say it’s a sad story. He didn’t play now for three and a half months. That’s obviously not really cool but we all know that doping is a very serious thing and we cannot have that.“But I am sure they tried to do the right thing. Others have to talk about this because I don’t know what I am allowed or able to say. That’s one thing and the other is that Mama is currently injured.”Klopp’s central defensive options are set to be depleted further after Martin Skrtel flew to Turkey on Tuesday night to put the finishing touches to his £5million move to Fenerbahce following an eight-year stint at Anfield.The 31-year-old was pictured holding a Fenerbahce scarf at Istanbul Airport and he told reporters he expects to finalise his switch on Wednesday.With Skrtel nearing a departure, Sakho currently injured and Kolo Toure having recently been released, Klopp is light in that area even after acquiring Joel Matip from Schalke already this summer.

Eagle-eyed member of public in appeal to find owner of missing bird

first_imgA concerned member of the public in Donegal is keen to return an eagle to its rightful home after it was spotted in their garden when they were feeding their hens – it has emerged. It is unknown where the eagle came from before it was safely captured in Manorcunningham this morning (Weds) at around 8am.It is understood that a resident in the south Inishowen area was feeding their hens when she discovered the eagle. The eagle, which has been described as large in size, has since been placed in a cage in an effort to find its rightful owners.Anne Blake, who contacted Donegal Daily about the missing bird, said: “The eagle is now safe and has been placed in a cage by a member of staff at La Maison in Letterkenny. “The bird remains in Manorcunningham and we are not sure who we can contact to get the bird back to safety.“It was very dirty, it looked to be covered in mud, and Sylvia, who caught the bird, believes it may have been there since last night (Tues).” If you have any more information on the eagle, call Sylvia on 08743130072 or contact info@lamaison.ieEagle-eyed member of public in appeal to find owner of missing bird was last modified: November 13th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
