Averting a ‘Death Trap’: Bravo to Cape Mt., Gbarpolu Women

first_imgThe women of Lofa Bridge Community have done their country and people a great service by reporting just in time a bridge connecting  Grand Cape Mount and Gbarpolu counties that is about to fall apart.Our reporter Gloria Tamba wrote last Tuesday that the women, led by Madam Massa Gorla, had been observing the bridge for some time and noticed that not only  are the planks on the bridge floor falling apart, but the very pillars on which it stands are cracking!They made noises, but no one listened.  So these patriotic and determined women, whose children cross that bridge daily for school, got fed up and took decisive ACTION.  They mounted road blocks on either side, making it impossible for motorists to pass.This caught the immediate attention of the two key Ministries of government, Internal Affairs (MIA)  and Public Works (MPW).  Soon, MIA Minister Morris Dukuly and MPW Minister Antoinette Weeks were on their way to see the bridge and both ordered it immediately closed to traffic.Public Works Minister Weeks pledged that her engineers would carefully examine the bridge and determine what to do about it.The women of this communities deserve the commendation and gratitude of the  entire nation for their action in averting what could have been a major disaster.It remains to be seen what Public Works will do.  Are they going to simply mend the broken bridge, or are they going to study it comprehensively and recommend that it be torn down and a proper bridge be built.But a number of questions arise here.  Why did it take these women to alert the government about this cracking bridge?  Has Public Works no program to monitor on a regular or periodic basis all government construction–bridges, buildings, etc., to determine which one needs repair?  It has long been said that the Liberian government knows how to build but not how to maintain.  Look at what happened to the Executive Mansion in 2006: the place caught afire due to an electrical fault.  Why? No one could remember when last the wiring of the building was checked since the Mansion was completed in 1964!Does Public Works have a detailed listing of all the government buildings and their architectural drawings? Does it have the same for all   the roads and bridges it has built?  Is there any place where the nation’s architectural archives are kept?What happened to the government’s Decentralization Plan  that the Governance Commission designed between 2006 and  2012?  The Plan called for the election of county superintendents, city mayors, district commissioners and paramount chiefs. It also called for the major government ministries to be represented in each county. This would include, for starts, the Ministries of Justice–Police, Immigration and Joint Security; Education; Internal Affairs; and Public Works.  And since we are dealing in this editorial with physical infrastructure, the Plan called for a Highway Department in each county, working in close collaboration with   Public Works.  TheDepartment’s function was to maintain all the road networks and public buildings in the county.  Had there been a Highway Department in Gbarpolu County, there would have been no need for the women to advise Internal Affairs and Public Works that their  bridge was on the verge of collapse.The President has just under three more years in office.  She has enough time to finish that which she has begun–the  decentralization of the Liberian government, to share power with the people at the local level and hopefully, to enable the government to be a little more efficient.It remains to be seen whether she will be the first Liberian President to accomplish the devolution of power–the transfer to the people at the local level, of some of the powers of the President.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Barca hammer Sevilla for 30th Copa del Rey

first_imgBarca’s exhilarating display earns them their 30th triumph in this competition and fourth in a row, having reached the final in each of the last five years.But, despite hugs and high-fives at the end, the real celebrations will be put on ice until next Sunday, when victory over Deportivo La Coruna will confirm Ernesto Valverde’s side as La Liga champions too.Even a clean sweep of the domestic trophies, perhaps polished by La Liga’s first ever unbeaten season, will not eradicate the lingering disappointment from Barca’s Champions League exit to Roma.But this performance, as easy on the eye as it was emphatic, will certainly serve as a counter-point to those that believe Valverde’s team have been efficient, rather than exciting this season, and overly reliant on Messi.“Winning the Cup does not hide the disappointment in Rome,” Suarez said after the match. “But at the beginning of the season anyone would have signed for a double.”Messi was, of course, superb again on Saturday but this was not a one-man show.Suarez scored his 31st and 32nd goals of the season while Iniesta delivered one of those effortless displays, in which at times he was virtually unplayable.If this is to be the 33-year-old’s last Barca final before departing for China, it was a fitting farewell, with only goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen absent from the 10-man huddle that engulfed the Spaniard following his shimmying fourth.By the time Coutinho converted his penalty in the 69th minute, Barca were simply sharing the goals around.For Sevilla, defeat was always the most likely scenario but this was a whitewash.Sitting eighth in La Liga, even Europa League qualification now looks an outside bet and there may be repercussions for coach Vincenzo Montella and some of his players in the summer.“Barcelona has been superior in everything, they have extra-terrestrial players,” Montella said.“​​I’m very sorry for the fans who have been fantastic, sorry for the disappointments. I have seen crying in the dressing room but tomorrow, we have to work.”Amid ongoing political unrest between Catalonia and the Spanish government, Barca fans whistled during the national anthem before kick-off, with king Felipe VI watching on.Their jeers, however, were drowned out by the chants of Sevilla supporters.When the first goal arrived it came from a long Cillessen punt downfield as Coutinho found himself free behind the Sevilla backline and squared for Suarez to stab home.Iniesta hit the bar with a rasping shot from distance and soon they were two up, Jordi Alba keeping the ball alive with a backheel that Messi slammed into the roof of the net.Messi could have had a second were it not for an incorrect offside call and then a cynical foul by Sergio Escudero, for which he was lucky only to receive a yellow card.Both mattered little, however, as Messi set Suarez free in the 41st minute, and the Uruguayan slid a third under David Soria.It was another one-two, with Messi again the pivot, that released Iniesta in the second half as the midfielder’s dummy-shot left Soria scrambling and an open net for the midfielder to finish into.Resigned to their fate, Sevilla’s fans sang to the end, even as Coutinho despatched a penalty to make it five after the ball had struck Clement Lenglet on the arm.All that was left was for Iniesta’s substitution to be given a standing ovation before the captain hoisted the trophy, perhaps for the final time.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Fond farewell: Andres Iniesta hugs Lionel Messi before leaving the field © AFP / LLUIS GENEMADRID, Spain, Apr 22 – Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez inspired Barcelona to what will surely be the first part of a domestic double this season as they thrashed Sevilla 5-0 on Saturday to win the Copa del Rey.Messi had scored once and Suarez twice before even the half-time whistle had blown at the Wanda Metropolitano, with the sublime Andres Iniesta and Philippe Coutinho later compounding Sevilla’s humiliation.last_img read more

first_imgHere are the top transfer-related stories in Tuesday’s newspapers…Everton have struck a £25m deal with Swansea for Gylfi Sigurdsson – but the midfielder is holding out for more than £120,000-a-week. The Toffees have moved quickly to try to tie up a deal for Swansea’s star man and double player of the year, amid rival interest from the likes of Tottenham and Southampton. (Daily Mirror)Liverpool are leading the hunt to land Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Jurgen Klopp is ready to test Arsenal’s resolve to hold onto the England midfielder, who is ready to leave the Emirates after six years in North London. (The Sun)Chelsea will step up their bid to sign Romelu Lukaku next month after making the Belgium striker their first-choice target ahead of Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata. Everton bought Lukaku from Chelsea for £28million in 2014 and have put a £100m price tag on his head. However, the champions believe they will be able to acquire the 24-year-old for a lot less than that. (London Evening Standard)Chelsea and Bayern Munich are now in the race for Kyle Walker.

Talks have already taken place with the 22-year-old midfielder’s representatives who have also had contact with Manchester United, Liverpool and Paris St Germain. (Daily Mail)Atlético Madrid have expressed a desire to be kept informed of Chelsea striker Diego Costa’s intentions this summer, despite Tianjin Quanjian’s confidence of taking him to China. (Guardian)Atletico Madrid are confident they’ll have their transfer ban overturned, so have this week renewed their efforts to reinforce their squad.  And the major casualties of this push are Everton, who felt they had won the race to sign Sandro Ramirez from Malaga for a bargain £5.1million but now look like missing out, with Atleti set to dust off their chequebook in search of players who can return them to trophy-winning ways. (Independent)Arsenal have begun discussions to sign KAS Eupen striker Henry Onyekuru. The 19-year-old is the top scorer in the Belgium domestic league. (Various)Rafa Benitez will make a bid to land Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi on loan.

The 34-year-old striker is set to complete a medical within the next 72 hours, before sealing his switch from relegated Sunderland.

Taking a team approach

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake “He’s fast, he’s quick, and he has a nose for the goal,” first-year Palmdale coach Jarrod Cline said. “He’s a guy you can kind of count on to score a goal for you, and if he’s not scoring goals for you, he’s usually setting up scoring opportunities for his teammates. “He puts a lot of pressure on the other teams.” Palmdale is coming off a disappointing season in which it placed sixth, ahead of only second-year school Knight, which fielded a team of only freshmen and sophomores in its varsity debut. The Falcons return 13 seniors, and they have a legitimate chance of challenging consensus league favorites Quartz Hill, Highland and defending champion Littlerock. Garay, Littlerock senior goalkeeper Emilio Miranda, Highland senior midfielder Robby Gonzalez and junior forward Sharif Khatib, and Quartz Hill senior midfielder Cody Jennison are the top returning players in what figures to be an intensely competitive league race. PALMDALE – Palmdale High forward Jose Garay isn’t among the talent-rich Golden League’s flashiest boys’ soccer players. But whatever he lacks in pizazz, he more than makes up for with efficiency. “Everybody has their moves, but what really matters is playing well with your team and helping your team win,” Garay said. “I’m not the flashiest player, and I don’t really want to be the flashiest player. I take pride in that.” His less-than-showy playing style is remarkably effective. Garay has emerged as one of the area’s most feared offensive players after scoring 15 goals through nine games. Highland coach Scot Sutherland said a 2-2 Highland-Palmdale tie (Highland won on penalty kicks) in the third-place game of last week’s La Canada tournament illustrated the league’s top-to-bottom balance. “Some very good team in our league is not going to make (the playoffs),” Sutherland said. Garay and the Falcons hope they’re not that team. They’ve taken to a new style employed by Cline, a former Kansas Wesleyan University assistant who has Palmdale playing a more methodical offensive game. The game plan emphasizes passing the ball around and setting up scoring opportunities instead of kicking the ball up the field and hoping an open forward is there to take advantage. “It isn’t the usual kick-and-run style that most teams play,” Palmdale senior midfielder Brandon Afaro said. “It’s a smarter game. We’re making passes where they need to be. I like it a lot because the team can adapt to it really well no matter who’s on the field.” The new approach suits Garay just fine. “I think we just need to play hard and worry about playing our game and not worry about the other teams,” Garay said. “I think if we do that, we can challenge for the title.” — Gideon Rubin (818)713-3607 gideon.rubin@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DONEGAL CHILDREN WAITING MORE THAN A YEAR TO SEE ORTHODONTIST

first_imgA total of 177 people, most of them children, have been waiting more than a year to see an orthodontist at Letterkenny General Hospital.Charlie McConalogueThe figures were released to Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal North East Charlie McConalogue who says the current waiting list is completely unacceptable.Deputy McConalogue commented, “The length of waiting times for orthodontic treatment at Letterkenny General Hospital is more evidence of the mishandling of the health service by this Government, and more particularly Minister James Reilly. “Patients in Donegal, and across the North West are being forced on to long waiting lists for neurological services, rheumatology services and orthopaedic services. Now orthodontic treatment can be added to those ever expanding lists.“The majority of people having to wait for orthodontic treatment are children, and in many cases are in severe pain. It is not too much to ask that our children receive the care they need within a reasonable amount of time.“Across the HSE West region, there are almost 5,000 people on a waiting list for an orthodontic appointment. Nearly 2,000 of them have been waiting more than 12 months, and in some instances people have been on the same list for up to 4 years.”He claimed this Government has been leading a sustained attack on local health services, especially in the North West region. Patients in Donegal are expected to either wait or travel to receive essential medical services. “This is a completely unacceptable expectation and has been brought about solely by the extensive cutbacks forced in by Minister Reilly. His inability to balance his department’s books has exacerbated the situation, leading to reduced services, restricted access and longer waiting times”.DONEGAL CHILDREN WAITING MORE THAN A YEAR TO SEE ORTHODONTIST was last modified: July 11th, 2014 by StephenShare 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) Tags:Charlie McConaloguedonegalorthondontistlast_img read more

Cattle movers paraded to police station in M.P., made to say ‘Gau Mata Ki Jai’

first_imgAbout 100 villagers tied 25 people with a rope and paraded them through a 2-km stretch to a police station in Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh on Sunday for allegedly transporting cows to Maharashtra, the police said. A video of the purported incident showed several villagers carrying sticks and forcing the alleged cattle-transporters to do sit-ups holding their ears amid cries of “Gau Mata Ki Jai”. The incident happened in Sanwalikheda village in Khalwas area, about 60 km from the district headquarters, a police officer said. “We have booked the people ferrying the cattle for doing so without requisite permissions. We have also lodged a case against the villagers, including farmers, for ill-treating those booked for unauthorised cattle transport,” Khandwa Superintendent of Police Shiv Dayal Singh said. “Villagers brought the group transporting cows to our police station. We seized 21 trucks used for the purpose. The cows have been shifted to a shelter. They were taking the cows from Harda district in M.P. to Maharashtra,” said Inspector Harishanker Rawat of Khalwas police station. The incident comes a day before the start of the Madhya Pradesh Assembly session in which the Kamal Nath government is likely to table an amendment in a law to curb violence in the name of cow protection.Act amendment The State Cabinet last month approved the proposal to amend the M.P. Cow Progeny Slaughter Prevention Act, 2004. The move to amend the law, cleared during the previous BJP government, came after a Muslim man and woman were beaten up on suspicion of carrying beef in M.P.’s Seoni district in May.last_img read more
