first_imgResidents of the remote Buuyao District in Nimba County near the Liberian/Ivoirian border have appealed to the Ministry of Public Works to help ease their transportation woes and to at least give the district a sense of dignity before the rainy season starts.During a tour of the district over the weekend, the Daily Observer interviewed many of the locals, who complained that their district has been abandoned and left to suffer from the poor condition of the road network.“I am sure you came by a motorbike and you experienced what we have been going through for many years,” a local chief, Wormein Dahn, told the Daily Observer reporter. “It was not a good experience,” he said, hoping for government intervention.Chief Dahn said the poor condition of the road has made it extremely difficult for the district to engage in projects that enhance the lives of its residents.“We worry about the poor road condition,” a female marketer said, adding, “There are many large potholes filled with mud water. Traveling on a bike from one town to the main road means you need to stop somewhere to clean yourself, which means changing your clothes as soon you enter the big city.”She said while the ongoing opening of some portions of the farm-to-market roads in the district showed the county administration’s interest in making life easier for residents, “the government should know that roads that connect the district with other nearby districts have remained equally deplorable.”“The danger is that whenever any resident here is sick, we don’t have the means to rush them to hospital, because vehicles are not available here,” a male shop keeper said in Zruzenplay Town, midway to Buutuo Town near the Liberian/Ivoirian border.Another resident told the Daily Observer, “I am losing faith in those who have the duty to represent our district, but would not do what is necessary in this situation.”The resident, a female student, said she could not understand why the Ministry of Public Works or the county authority didn’t consider it as urgent to get the road rehabilitated, especially during the dry season.She wondered the value of voting people into office when it makes no difference in their suffering.The Buuyao Electoral District #5 is represented at the National Legislature by Samuel G. Korgar, whose office told the Daily Observer that he is aware of the prevailing situation and promised a practicable solution to rehabilitate the roads.“Reconstruction of road networks in the district has always been a priority of Rep. Korga, who believes that the people he represents at the House deserve better,” his office said. His office could, however, not explain Korga’s lack of contact with the community to know the plights of the residents. But Dee K. Wehye, his political officer, said there are plans to also rehabilitate the feeder roads, particularly the Buutuo/Bahn route.According to Mr. Wehye, this will depend on the completion of the ongoing feeder road projects before the rainy season sets in.“We scheduled the work in such a way that when the earth-moving machines are finished with the feeder roads, we would direct our attention to the repair of the feeder roads, firstly; then the road that connects Bahn, Zoe-Geh political city with Buutuo, which is germane to government’s revenue generation owing to its proximity with neighboring La Cote d’Ivoire,” Mr. Wehye explained.Several residents interviewed in the district expressed disappointment over the deplorable condition of the roads, especially the Bahn/Buutuo route. They appealed to the Ministry of Public Works and Rep. Korga to rush to their rescue before the rainy season intensifies.Buu-Yao District is one of the 17 districts of Nimba County. The population was 40,007 as of 2008 National Population and Housing Census.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgPublic Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan said he could employ former Head of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) James Singh within his Ministry.Singh was sent on immediate leave in March of this year and was later fired by Government in June.Asked about the fate of the former anti-narcotics agency’s head, Ramjattan said Singh has a vast scope of experience and expertise that should not go to waste.“I will make a decision in relation to rehiring him, depending on the vacancies at the Ministry or in other units that come under Public Security.But he comes with a tremendous amount of experience and expertise and I would like to have him rehired in some quarters in my portfolio function of Minister of Public Security,” Ramjattan said.Singh who was appointed to head CANU in 2008, has qualifications in public security, business and engineering. On March 1, Government had announced that Singh had proceeded on leave due to the days he had accumulated.At the time, Minister Ramjattan had also informed this newspaper that there was a deputy at CANU who would help retired Major General Michael Atherly in the administration of the Unit in the absence of Singh.Minister of State Joseph Harmon had said that the decision was in line with Government’s policy of ensuring that officers did not accumulate annual leave and in turn request pay in lieu.last_img read more

first_imgBefore future soldiers step foot in a recruiting station, they have thought about joining the military, recruiters said. The allure comes from movies, video games, toys, teachers or even relatives who have served, they said. Recruiters need to keep potential recruits enthusiastic while deflecting advice from others who say they shouldn’t enlist, said Lt. Col. Robert Kirkland, a professor of military science at Claremont McKenna College. “There are people that don’t want to serve, and there’s not any sort of enticement available that will change their minds,” Kirkland said. “But most recruiters realize there are people that are inclined and willing to check it out. Those are the ones who can be enticed with scholarships.” Recruiters will also sell whatever the military has to offer: adventure, enlistment bonuses, great retirement packages, vacation time, camaraderie, a chance to be a part of something bigger, career advancement, all-inclusive benefits, and even the food. The Army offers a signing bonus of up to $20,000 and up to $71,424 for college. Soft-spoken and floppy-haired Gus Punzo, 19, got his share of that money but said he enlisted recently because he is ready for change. A year out of Rowland High School, and he isn’t getting out of life what he thinks he could. He’s been pondering joining the Army since he first saw “Saving Private Ryan” when he was 12. Now, he is excited to serve, even if that means he has to go to Iraq. “If my country needs me, I will go there,” he said. Recruiters take any opportunity – at malls, colleges, high schools or sporting events – to weed out the uninterested to meet the goal of enlisting two people a month. “Do you want to join the Army?” Sgt. 1st Class Sean Patrick asked a waitress at Chili’s restaurant in West Covina. She said no and walked away. In the San Gabriel Valley, Army and Navy representatives also said they are hitting their targets, although they are more aggressive than in past years, Kirkland said. He has noticed an increase in recruiters and college scholarships available. According to available local numbers, recruiting numbers for the Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy were the highest in Baldwin Park, West Covina and La Puente in 2001 and again in 2003, when the United States invaded Iraq. Since then, numbers have gradually declined, although the Marines have seen an increase in the area. In 2001, it recruited 127, and 153 in 2003. Azusa resident Ruby Valdes, 25, expects to enlist in the Marines by the end of the month. “The thought has always been in the back of my mind since high school,” said Valdes, who works as a paint technician at a body shop. “I’m a hands-on person, and the Marines best fits my personality.” Army Staff Sgt. Jason Schreck said he is among the rare breed of soldiers who joined to be in combat, and one of the most common questions he gets asked is if they will have to go to Iraq or Afghanistan. “I tell them there is a good chance,” he said. Recruiters also have to deal with the daily images of carnage and death. There have been 3,561 deaths and 25,173 wounded as of March 13, according to the Department of Defense. “There is more of a chance dying on a California freeway than going to Iraq,” Patrick said. The California Highway Patrol reported 3,907 deaths on California’s roadways in 2006. “You have to be afraid of death to not want to go Iraq,” Punzo said, “and I’m not.” He’s not the only one. Sgt. Thomas McConnell of Lancaster was among the nearly 600 soldiers at the farewell ceremony for the California Army National Guard on March 4. They were heading to Mississippi on March 7 for three months of training before deploying to Iraq. McConnell said he wanted to join the military since he was a child, and enlisted in 1989. He was deployed to Iraq during Operation Desert Storm, as well as to Egypt, Afghanistan and Kuwait. “I’ve always loved the military and I love serving my country,” McConnell said. At the ceremony, pregnant wives asked for prayers. Mothers hugged their sons, telling them to come home safe. Fathers told their sons that they were proud of them. jennifer.mclain@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2477160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! • Video: Farewell Ceremony Two elementary school boys, one dressed in a camouflage shirt, darted toward the sandbox recently in the Army recruiting office at the Westfield mall in West Covina. One of the them picked up a toy tank. “Is this real?” he asked the other boy as they began to play with the toys. Sgt. Charles Pulliam, wearing his Army uniform and combat boots, looked at the boys and confidently uttered a prediction: “At least one of them will end up joining the Army,” he said. The military is meeting its recruiting goals, despite polls showing a growing anti-war sentiment on the eve the fourth anniversary the Iraq War and the president’s request for an additional 29,500 troops to Iraq and Afghanistan. The California Army National Guard in 2006 exceeded the recruiting goal of 3,371 by 163. This was the first year since 1996 that California exceeded its goal, according to 2nd Lt. Scott Ghiranghelli. “We have every expectation of enlisting similar numbers in federal fiscal year 2007, although we are currently feeling the after-effects of the mid-term elections,” Maj. Gregory Potter said. last_img read more

I can’t speak on behalf of clubs that I don’t know, but in so many clubs in the Kenyan Premier League there is match fixing, but in our team, it had roots. Its only that other clubs fear speaking out,” Shimanyula underscored.Kakamega Homeboyz head coach Paul Nkata issues instructions on the touchline during their Kenyan Premier League match against Nakumatt FC at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on June 17, 2018. PHOTO/FILEThe Kakamega Homeboyz chairman revealed how his now sacked head coach Ugandan Paul Nkata allegedly collaborated with George Mandela to match fix some of their matches.“We have all the evidence and I wonder why the federation has not taken action on Nkata and Mandela, in Kenya there is a lot of Match fixing its only that people after fearing to speak, as Homeboyz we have strategy of catching them, match fixing is brought by greed.“So, the coach (Nkata) used to give players Sh150 ,000 or Sh50,000 and because the players earn less, they will take the money and do as they are instructed since he (coach) is their boss. I won’t blame players as much. The coach used to substitute Allan Wanga w to avoid scoring goals that could have led to him losing bet,” Shimanyula told.He added; “Federation has failed to take action on the matter because if in 2009 it happened as the FIFA report indicates, up to know what has the federation done?” Shimanyula questioned.This comes after a 10-page FIFA report linked three former Harambee Stars defenders with alleged match fixing in the 2009 Kenya v Nigeria FIFA 2010 South Africa World Cup qualifier in a match played at the Moi international Sports Center Kasarani.In the report, claims are the former defender George ‘Wise’ Owino was paid to let in goals in a match that Kenya ended up losing 3-2 to the Super Eagles and earn a slot in World Cup the following year.-KPL to call meeting over match-fixing claims-KPL CEO Jack Oguda.

first_img Johns like the Altima driver, whose name was not released by police, would come to them quickly. The undercover officers, who were wearing transmitters to record the conversations with the suspects, would make sure the suspect was looking to pay for a sexual act and see the money. Then they’d tell the driver to pull around the corner to the back of the parking lot, where other officers made the arrest. “You just go out there and you stand, and surprisingly, they flock to you,” said Officer Ellen Gable, who posed as a prostitute during the sting. “You do engage in conversation that’s a little out of the ordinary, a little sensitive. A lot of them are married, you can see wedding rings, or you see a child’s seat in the back of the car.” Councilman Tony Cardenas, who accompanied police during part of the sting operation, said he was trying to get funding to run more vehicle seizure operations in the San Fernando Valley. “We’re trying to give ourselves more tools as a deterrent,” Cardenas said. “If that doesn’t work, maybe Captain Miller and I can put on a wig and a boa. That would be a deterrent in itself.” (818) 713-3669 josh.kleinbaum@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

James Miller, commanding officer of the Van Nuys area. “We want to get it off the boulevard. It’s been a long, long blight on Sepulveda Boulevard.” Last year, the LAPD made 330 prostitution-related arrests in Van Nuys, and most of them came on Sepulveda Boulevard, Miller said. Residents often complain of being propositioned on the street, he said, and he hoped the threat of losing a car – which could be far more costly than a misdemeanor fine – would deter would-be johns from looking for prostitutes on Sepulveda. “Women trying to go to the market can’t just go to the market without someone stopping them,” Miller said. “It’s because people think they can do that on Sepulveda.” During the sting operation, undercover police officers posed as prostitutes. They never approached potential suspects – they didn’t need to. VAN NUYS – A woman in tight blue jeans, a black shirt, a light green sweater and three-inch black heels stepped onto the Sepulveda Boulevard curb just north of Vose Street at 8:19 p.m. Saturday. For two minutes, she strutted up the boulevard, a black purse tucked under her arm, pausing underneath a lamp post and a tree. In just three minutes, she hooked her first fish. A gold Nissan Altima slowed in front of her, then turned into a parking lot behind her. The driver, a middle-aged man, rolled down his window, and the two talked for about 30 seconds. The woman turned and walked farther into the parking lot. The car followed. When it stopped, three undercover police officers arrested the man on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute. His car, a fully-loaded 2005 Altima, was seized by police, and the city will move to confiscate it as permitted in a three-year-old city ordinance. last_img read more

first_imgEngland legend Peter Shilton has told talkSPORT Joe Hart could be replaced as the Three Lions’ number one goalkeeper ahead of the 2018 World Cup.Hart has already been pushed out onto the fringes at Manchester City and now his international future may be in doubt after a decline in form and a series of unsettling performances.The arrival of Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson for £35million this summer has all-but spelled the end of Hart’s career at the Etihad Stadium, having been shipped out on loan to Torino for the whole of last season by new boss Pep Guardiola.His time in Italy seems to have done no favours for his form in the net, either.Hart was a popular figure in Italy, both at his club and throughout Serie A as a whole, and was considered one of the better goalkeepers in the country last season. But, Torino’s defence was the fourth worst in the league – shipping 66 goals – and conceding so many goals may have harmed his confidence. He was criticised for his performance in the recent 2-2 draw with Scotland, in which he conceded two carbon-copy free kicks from Leigh Griffiths, and England manager Gareth Southgate opted to play both Tom Heaton and Jack Butland in Tuesday’s friendly against France – which ended in a 3-2 defeat in Paris – though the boss insisted it was always his plan to rest Hart.Nevertheless, Shilton – England’s most-capped player in history with 125 appearances – expects his England understudies to challenge Hart for the No.1 spot ahead of the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.Asked who will be England’s first choice goalkeeper for the tournament, Shilton told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I don’t know, I honestly don’t know.“Joe’s in limbo – he hasn’t got a club in this country.“Jordan Pickford has just been signed by Everton and he’s supposed to be England’s fifth choice – you would have thought Joe would have been up for that.“Hopefully he’ll be picked up by a club this summer and he’ll start playing well and cement his place, because he has got the experience, but there is competition now.“Jack Butland in particular could come on this year, there’s Tom Heaton and then there’s Pickford who has a tremendous amount of promise.“It’s all to play for. I don’t think Joe’s an automatic choice anymore.”last_img read more
