D-day for some in daCosta Cup

first_imgWestern Bureau:It’s crunch time for the three teams in contention for the top places in Group E of the 2015 ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup.None can afford to misfire today in what is shaping up as a win-or-go-home scenario.Lacovia High (19 points) will take a three-point lead into their clash with the group’s third-place team Munro College (16). This game will be played at St Elizabeth Technical’s (STETHS) playfield in Santa Cruz. STETHS (18) will meet Newell who have registered a measly two points. They meet at the Treasure Beach Sports Park.With two to advance as automatic qualifiers and the best third-place team also a possibility these match-ups take on added significance.STETHS coach Omar Wedderburn, though pleased with his team’s 4-0 rout of B.B. Coke on Wednesday, knows that to top the group his team will have to win and hopes that rivals Munro can do them an enormous favour by defeating Lacovia.”Come later this evening, we are looking for a three-point result,” Wedderburn told The Gleaner.”We know we have what it takes and are confident that we will defeat Newell. In the same breath, if we are to top the group, Lacovia must lose so we are hoping that Munro will stop them,” Wedderburn said.It is almost a similar storyline in Group H, which features the defending champions Clarendon College. They lead with 15 points, one more than Lennon High (14).The champions are set to meet one of the weakest teams in the group in Thompson Town while Edwin Allen (13 pts), third in the group, will no doubt have three points on their minds when they tackle second-place team Lennon (14).Meanwhile, the free-scoring Manchester High will travel to DeCarteret in their final Group F game, having already secured the top place with a perfect nine wins from as many matches.Today’s matchesGreen Pond vs IrwinFrome vs Rusea’sWilliam Knibb vs Herbert MorrisonSpot Valley vs MuschettMannings vs Maud McLeodPetersfield vs Godfrey StewartMunro vs LacoviaMaggotty vs B.B.

Brilliant run by Bigdaddykool

first_imgFAR-STRIDING BIGDADDYKOOL yesterday staked his claim as the country’s best two-turn horse, sweeping past the trio of BRAWN, HOUDINI’S MAGIC and FRANFIELD a half-furlong out to land the Legal Light Trophy.Out for his first race this season, the four-year-old gelding was pushed by Linton Steadman at the start of the 1820-metre event to chase FRANFIELD from the clubhouse turn and on to the backstretch.FRANFIELD’S game plan to make all the running with Shane Ellis was foiled by BIGDADDYKOOL’S stablemate, HOUDINI’S MAGIC, who shot through at the half-mile marker.Running 14lb lighter than FRANFIELD, HOUDINI’S MAGIC’s sudden move pulled Ellis into a duel on the lead, setting up the race for the closers, BIGDADDYKOOL stalking on the outside and United States-bred BRAWN taking the shortest route along the rail.BRAWN was first to pounce off the turn and motored to the lead along the rail. However, Bigdaddykool, who straightened four wide, hit top stride in mid-track and measured BRAWN nicely to go by a half-furlong out.LOWERED THE STAKESBIGDADDYKOOL lowered the stakes record by two-fifths of a second, clocking 1:55.0, erasing 1:55.2 posted by Miracle Man in 2006 and equalled by SEEKING MY DREAM in last year’s race.The big gelding, two years younger than six-year-old FRANFIELD, now looks set to dominate the route races for the remainder of the season.They had an epic battle in last November’s Superstakes, which FRANFIELD lost in the stewards’ room after drifting BIGDADDYKOOL to the stands’ side and narrowly lasting home.BIGDADDYKOOL sealed a two-timer for trainer Anthony Nunes, whose OCEAN SEEKER won the fourth race with apprentice Dane Dawkins aboard.Jockey Aaron Chatrie rode two winners to top his peers. He opened his account with 8-1 outsider BRAVE HEART, who was awarded the second event after 2-1 chance BREEZY was disqualified for repeatedly hindering MOUNT ZION KING in the stretch run.Chatrie closed his two-timer with BOUNCE, who took charge of the 1500-metre fifth event from three furlongs out.Racing continues at Caymanas Park on Wednesday. Next Saturday, the Jamaica Oaks headlines weekend racing with 1000 Guineas winner SHE’S A MANEATER listed among 20 entries for the $3m 10-furlong race.last_img read more

Reyes: Japan and Taipei ‘very similar’

Southeast Should Be a Serious Focus of Our Attention

first_imgThe cogent (strong) question can be asked, Who can afford to ignore Liberia’s Southeastern Region?We raise this question   not simply because that is where the trouble came from in 1980; but more so because it has long been one of thenation’s most neglected regions.A young woman named Chris Tah was Assistant Minister of Justice for Rehabilitation in the late 1970s.  She visited  to the Southeast inconnection with the establishment of the National Palace of Correction in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.  When she returned to Monrovia, she warned that the government pay more attention to the Southeast because she found the people very angry of neglect.  If any trouble ever came to the country, it would come from there, she warned.  But in typical Liberian fashion, no one took her seriously.  Everyone knows what happened a short while later–and ledby whom.Daily Observer Agricultural Correspondent Judoemue M. Kollie recently toured the Southeast and returned with an even more alarming report.In his story, “Economic Situation Appalling,” he reported that five major sectors of the Southeast were at once in desperate need: agriculture and food, in which most Liberians are self-employed, farmland  scarcity, education, healthcare delivery and housing.Reporter Kollie quoted Bannie Brown, president of the Maryland County Farmers’ Cooperative Society who complained of “inadequate supportreceived toward food production in various Southeastern counties.”Kollie recalled that early in the Ellen administration she made agriculture the center of her Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS).  But after a decade of sustained peace in the country, many southeasterners still live in thatch houses and are finding it difficult to afford even daily meals.Was this issue of HOUSING not the very point to which this newspaper in a recent editorial called the attention of Finance Minister AmaraKonneh? Reporter Kollie quoted Bannie Brown lamenting that the  thatched huts which they still inhabit constituted one tangible indication of the “economic stagnation” still gripping the Southeast.Food was another subset of the Agriculture problem: the people are hungry and have serious difficulty finding daily food to eat.  The 30,000 hectares of land which the government gave to the Callava River Company (CRC), said Mr. Brown, has robbed the people of sufficientfarmland to grow food.  This is aside from the fact that the Agriculture Ministry seems to have forgotten that these people exist. When last did Florence Chenoweth send an Agriculture Extension Agent to Maryland, or anywhere in the Southeast?Another most serious   agricultural problem is that the ONE cash crop on which these people depend for survival is rubber.  But there is noone to buy their rubber since Firestone pulled out of the area. The people say CRC is neither buying their rubber nor employing them–sothey are in a terrible triple FIX–no food, no jobs, no money because they’re unable to sell their rubber.All of this is compounded by the steep rise in the foreign exchange rate, making it even more difficult to buy anything with the little money they have.Then there are the problems with the schools: no books, no well trained teachers, no libraries and no laboratories.  And finally, efficient and reliable HEALTHCARE DELIVERY is unreliable–or absent.What must be done?We strongly advise that Presdident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf  immediately dispatch to the entire Southeast a fact-finding mission to look into the people’s suffering and deprivations and DO something quickly and long-lasting to ease their distress and pain.  The mission should comprise experts from the  Agriculture,  Education, Health and Social Welfare, Land and Housing sectors.  The mission must carefully study the people’s plight and return with answers and solutions that can be immediately applied to redress this desperate situation.It is so sad that several years ago when the  Rubber Planters Association (RPL) ran the CRC and were doing a good job at it, they were summarily removed by then Agriculture Minister Chris Toe.  Since that time things took for the worse, and his successor, Dr. Chenoweth,seems to have done nothing to fix the problems.We pray that government will revisit its Poverty Reduction Strategy and DO something alleviate the desperation in Liberia’s beloved butforgotten Southeast.It seems to us that the Legislators, instead of targeting the Central Bank, should be targeting the plight of our people in Southeastern Liberia.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 society in need

first_imgDear Editor,“The first part of solving any problem is recognising we have one.”This is an age where you’re ridiculed for being a virgin, laughed at for having morals, called nerds as if intelligence is disgusting, called freaks for being different, called weird for loving to read and not watching television. It’s a generation where speaking properly is snobbish, where girls feel the need to dress provocatively to get a male’s attention, where guys disrespect women as a form of affection; an age where the old are outliving the future generations… a time where it is easier to steal than get a job, where dropping out of school is cheaper than getting an education; a time where race is more important than friendship and political ties are more important than family.A time where one person’s disgrace makes it ok to shun an entire religion. There was a time when helping the poor meant something more than publicity and doing a good deed didn’t mean getting something in return. A time where children respected their elders and the elders set a good example; a time where a community could be just that, a community.Now it is a war zone, divided through politics. A time when freedom meant something… Now we are all slaves to our own making. A time where we encouraged children to strive for greatness like Mandela, Armstrong, Pele, Jane Austin; but now they strive to be like Kanye, Kim K, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber. What has this earth come to when having a boyfriend defines your worth, and how many girls you’ve slept with makes you even more popular? This is the age where a girl is considered a dyke if she’s a little boyish, where apparently guys aren’t allowed to do anything girlish (not even play with their sisters) because it’s considered “gay”.It has become a time where we discriminate against someone’s sexual orientation, where you not only discriminate but harass and emotionally abuse them.Yes, I know most of these things have been around a very long time, but they are more prevalent now. We say we’re advancing towards the future. But at what cost? It’s like the more we develop, the less humane we get. You cling to your religion, brandishing it as a weapon to hurt others, but yet preach about not doing harm to another? That is pure hypocrisy. I’m not saying the world is lost, because there are many people who still value morals and family and being a good human. But what I am saying is that if people do not open their eyes and see what they’re doing to the world, then we will have a future of chaos and distrust.And if you’re going to take offence to this message or misinterpret what I am saying, then go ahead and be ignorant and then take a second to look at yourself and ask yourself why did you get angry? Was what I said not true?One pebble at a time can cause a ripple that some day will become a wave, so take a stand and try to make this world better, if not for anyone else, do it for yourself and your future generations.Regards,Carina Westfordlast_img read more

1 to lead defence, 2 freed in illegal gun, ammo, robbery case

first_imgTwo men walked free while the third suspect was ordered by Magistrate Rondel Weever to lead his defence into a series of charges that were brought against them for possession of illegal firearm and ammunition, along with robbery.Casey ChapmanFreed: Adam McDonaldFreed: Sheldon AndrewsCasey Chapman, 27, a taxi driver of Lot 77 South Sophia, Greater Georgetown, 24-year-old Sheldon Andrews, also a taxi driver, of Lot 306 West Ruimveldt, Georgetown and 30-year-old Adam McDonald, a block maker of Amelia’s Ward, Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), were arrested in November 2018 after allegedly trailing a businesswoman from the Eugene F Correia International Airport and robbing her of a package before shooting at her vehicle.Andrews and McDonald walked out of the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts as free men, after the Magistrate ruled that insufficient evidence was led against them by the prosecution.Chapman was then informed by Magistrate Weever that he will have to lead a defence in the matter on June 26.When the matter was called by the magistrate, she informed Andrews and McDonald that based on the evidence provided by the witnesses, they were not in the vehicle when Police arrived at the scene. However, she stated that the victim positively identified Chapman as the person who robbed her.The allegation against the three men stated that on November 26, 2018, at High and Princes Streets, Georgetown, while being in the company of each other, they had in their possession one .32 Taurus pistol without being holders of firearm licenses.The second charge stated that on the same day and at the same location, the men had in their possession one 9mm Glock pistol without being holders of firearm licenses.It was further alleged that on the same day and at the same location, they had in their possession 12 live rounds of 9mm ammunition without being holders of firearm licenses.The last charge against the men stated that on the same day and at the same location, they had in their possession seven .32 ammunition when they were not licensed firearm holders.It was further alleged that Chapman on July 5, 2017, at Grove Access Road, East Bank Demerara, while being in the company of another and armed with a gun, robbed Marcia Maria Martin of a cellular phone worth $70,000, four ounces of raw gold worth $600,000, $700,000 cash and other articles totalling $1.4 million.The three men denied the allegations on their first court appearance before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.According to the prosecution’s case on November 26, 2018, Police received information that three men were in a vehicle trailing a businesswoman from the Eugene F Correia International Airport at Ogle, and as a result, roadblocks were set up.The prosecution is contending that Police ranks from the Ruimveldt Police Station were on the lookout at High and Princes Streets, Georgetown, when they observed three men sitting in a vehicle and acting suspiciously. The ranks then approached the vehicle where they identified themselves. A search was conducted in the vehicle and they found the articles mentioned in the charges. The men were all arrested and taken into custody.The prosecutor told the court that an identification parade was held and Chapman was positively identified by the victim.last_img read more

Premier League round-up: Man United leap-frog City, QPR win away and Leicester boost survival hopes

first_imgManchester United gave their Champions League hopes another boost with an encouraging 3-1 victory over Aston Villa, a victory that has pushed local rivals Manchester City down to fourth spot.With Arsenal beating Liverpool 4-1 earlier in the afternoon, the Red Devils needed a win not only to strengthen their European aspirations but also keep them in the hunt for second spot, something boss Louis van Gaal has openly stated he is targeting.And they could certainly achieve it if Saturday’s performance is anything to go by. A dominant display throughout should have yielded more goals, but it was the out-of-favour Ander Herrera who opened the scoring, before Wayne Rooney continued his good form with a wonderfully taken effort.Villa gave United something to think about 10 minutes from time, as Christian Benteke caught their defence sleeping to halve the deficit, but Herrera grabbed a second in the final minutes to put the result beyond doubt.Perhaps the best game of the day came from the bottom of the table though, as QPR earned only their second away victory of the season by beating West Brom 4-1 at the Hawthorns.Rangers found themselves 3-0 up in the first-half courtesy of a rare strike from Eduardo Vargas, Charlie Austin’s 16th goal of the season, and a rasping effort from Bobby Zamora, but West Brom dominated the second period, pulling one back through Victor Anichebe moments after the restart.Any chance of a comeback was ended eight minutes from time though as Youssuf Mulumbu saw a straight red card for appearing to elbow Joey Barton, before Barton wrapped up victory with a goal in the final seconds of the game. The victory leaves QPR just one point from safety, with seven matches remaining this season.Fellow relegation strugglers Leicester City managed to help themselves to what could prove to be an important three points as they beat West Ham 2-1 at the King Power stadium.Esteban Cambiasso opened the scoring for the Foxes early on and could have been two-up, but David Nugent’s penalty was well saved by Adrian in the West Ham goal.Not long after, Cheikhou Kouyate finished smartly to restore parity for the Hammers, but with the game looking likely to end in a draw Andy King popped up 10 minutes from time to grab a massive winner to put Leicester just four points from safety.Another team well and truly in the relegation fight now are Hull City, who fell 3-1 to a well-organised Swansea City side at the Liberty Stadium.Ki Sung-yeung put the Swans ahead midway through the first half following a goalkeeping error and Bafetimbi Gomis added a second just before the break.Hull pulled one back immediately after the restart through Paul McShane, but the Tigers’ joy was short lived as David Meyler was dismissed for an horrendous challenge on Kyle Naughton.Gomis then heaped further misery on the visitors with his second of the game to leave Hull just three points clear of the bottom three. Swansea meanwhile remain eighth.Everton continued their recent spell of good form with a huge victory over Southampton at Goodison Park.Defender Phil Jagielka scored the only goal of the game early on, but it was Tim Howard who proved the difference maker in a tightly contested game, with the American pull off a string of stunning saves to help the Toffees move up to 11th spot. 1 Manchester United’s Ander Herrera last_img read more
