House Speaker J. Alex Tyler Sr. has again been allegedly trapped in a corruption web; and once more, his position as Speaker of the House is in trouble, so much so that Maryland County District # 2 Representative, Dr. Bhofal Chambers, a strong supporter of the re-election and non-removal of Speaker Tyler, is calling for an investigation.Rep. Chambers, the Chairman of the Committee of National Defense, said in his letter read on Tuesday, May 17 during the 30th Day Sitting of the 5th Session of the House of Representatives, that the ongoing corruption saga emanating from the Global Witness Report, which implicated prominent public officials, including some members of the Legislature, has the propensity to bring the government to public ridicule, demean its image and thereby erode public trust and confidence. Dr. Chambers urged his colleagues to institute and support the necessary safeguards that will ensure an independent investigation of the matter so as to protect the sanctity of the House of Representatives.The House Defense Chairman insisted that it is incumbent upon them at all times to maintain and protect the public trust, calling for the establishment of an independent investigation.Dr. Chambers, in his argument on Thursday, also told his colleagues that it would be sensible for the Speaker to recuse himself.According to the Global Witness Report, The Deceivers, in which several former and current public officials were named, Speaker Tyler allegedly received US$75,000 in an effort to secure the Wologizi iron ore concession in northern Liberia for Sable Mining, a company based in the United Kingdom. Two years ago, the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) invited the Speaker over a US$25,000 payment for ‘consultancy’ involving the late Michael Allison.The Daily Observer has gathered that on Thursday, May 19, due to a ‘secret meeting’ in the office of the Speaker, there was no ‘quorum’ in the House Chambers for Session, despite the distribution of the Session’s agenda after the restoration of electricity.A lawmaker, who requested anonymity, told the Daily Observer that high on the day’s agenda “was the essence and effect of the setting up of an independent committee and for the Speaker to recuse himself.”The Daily Observer also gathered that there would be resistance from some members of the House of Representatives to allow Speaker Tyler to continue to preside over the House.According a report, about 33 lawmakers have resolved to vote in favor of establishing an independent investigation and also to demand the Speaker recuse himself as Presiding Officer of the House of Representatives, until the end of the investigation by the special Presidential task force headed by Cllr. Fonati Koffa. Today – the 32nd Day Sitting of the 5th Session of the House of Representatives – the House is expected to finalize signatures for an independent investigation to be founded and the Speaker to be recused.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) community of Linden will now benefit from the services offered by Assuria Life, Fire and General Insurance, as the company opened a branch in the mining town on Friday.A meet-and-greet and a ribbon-cutting exercise marked the official opening of the branch, situated at Republic Avenue, Mackenzie.Under its two registered companies (Life and General), Assuria will be offering services such as life, motor and fire insurance; bonds and contractors’ liability.Assuria General Manager Yogindra Arjune said the company was pleased and excited about extending its services to the Linden community and was optimistic that it would be successful. He noted that though the opening of the branch took a number of years, the timing was right.“The town is developing at a very rapid rate and we want to be here at the time when it is being developed. We want to play our part in developing Linden. So, we’re excited,” he stated.Arjune added that the company would be offering unique packages at affordable prices with easy payment options.“Contractors’ insurance, we’re very big in that and we want to help in every way possible to bring something unique to Linden…,” he said.Outgoing Linden Mayor Carwyn Holland, who was present at the ceremony, expressed gratitude to the insurance company for investing in the town.“It shows that investors are building their confidence in our town and we’re happy that they would have seen it fit to invest and come to this end and also to employ Lindeners; which is good for us. We want to see more Lindeners being employed.“Besides that, the offering of insurance in affordable packages, I think that is good for Linden,” Holland stated.He added that the services which are offered by Assuria would also be beneficial to local contractors looking to secure bonds and the like, as there has been some difficulty faced in this regard.The outgoing Mayor said Assuria has also made a promise to fulfil its social responsibility to the community.The company has so far employed three Lindeners. Assuria, which is a Suriname- based company, currently has five branches across Guyana, some six years after it was established in this country. It has two branches in Trinidad.
POMONA – Police say Gregory Daniels was nimble enough to help steal a 1,500-pound ATM machine from a Pomona market. But when it came time to run for it, the 48-year-old didn’t have a leg to stand on. When police cornered a pickup truck with two men they say yanked an ATM from the Pomona Ranch Market on North Garey Avenue early Tuesday, they found Daniels on the ground. His prosthetic leg had fallen off. Police say Daniels and another man drove to the market about 3 a.m., smashed a window, wrapped a chain around the ATM and used the truck to rip it from the floor. Then they pulled the ATM over a set of newspaper racks, piled it into the truck and took off. Officers spotted the truck and chased it into a residential neighborhood, where the men drove into a dead-end street. One man fled and has not been caught, police Sgt. Mike Olivieri said. Daniels, and his prosthetic leg, were taken into custody on suspicion of burglary. Even for a crime-lively city like Pomona, Olivieri says this has to be a first. Tom Zvoda, assistant manager of Ranch Market, said when he came to work at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, he was greeted by police who told them they had good news and bad news. The bad news was the broken window. The good news was the ATM had been found, along with a prosthetic leg. “It was just unbelievable, you know?” Zvoda said. Zvoda spent a good part of Tuesday describing the burglary to TV news crews. He said they used the chain to smash the 7-foot-by-7-foot window. “They put the chain around it and dragged it through the hole in the wall,” he said. “There was glass inside and out.” He said the ATM holds $500, although he couldn’t say how much money was inside the machine during the theft. For the time being, it’s at the police station being checked for fingerprints. Zvoda used greeting card displays to block the broken window while waiting for the new glass to arrive. He figures the new glass will cost about $500. email@example.com (909) 483-9355.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

0Shares0000Antonio Conte suffers further misery as Chelsea are rocked by Watford © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 6 – Chelsea manager Antonio Conte insisted he “wasn’t worried” about his job despite seeing his 10 men suffer a second consecutive humiliating defeat on Monday, going down 4-1 at Watford.Goals from Daryl Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra in the final six minutes handed Watford a welcome first win in six games to move the Hornets six points clear of the relegation zone. Chelsea, beaten 3-0 at home by Bournemouth on their last outing, had already been reduced to 10 men by Tiemoue Bakayoko’s first-half red card before Troy Deeney’s penalty put Watford in front just before the break.Eden Hazard’s brilliant strike eight minutes from time briefly handed the visitors hope, but they remain fourth, just a point ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, with Conte’s chances of remaining in charge for the rest of the season under the spotlight.“I work every day and I give 120 percent, if this is enough, okay, otherwise the club can take a decision, but I’m not worried,” said Conte.“(There is) great disappointment for sure because I think our performance was very poor. We started very badly and without personality. We played with fear.”Conte insisted ahead of the match he intended to see out his contract to 2019 despite a series of complaints this season over his lack of influence over the club’s recruitment strategy.The Italian once again named a side without a recognised striker with new signing Olivier Giroud only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench in the absence of Alvaro Morata due to a back injury.A makeshift front three of Hazard, Pedro Rodriguez and Willian struggled to get involved as Watford dominated on new boss Javi Gracia’s home bow.“It is an unforgettable night,” said Gracia. “A great victory and a great match. I am very proud of my players today.“The match changed after the sending-off, but I am happy for all the match not only after the sending-off.“I don’t think we have only a good result because Chelsea played with 10 players.”Watford had a series of chances to go in front as Chelsea started slowly with Abdoulaye Doucoure, Deulofeu and Deeney failing to hit the target.– Bakayoko misery –Having been let off by Watford’s wayward finishing, Chelsea weren’t handed such a reprieve from referee Mike Dean as Bakayoko’s miserable first season in England continued.The French midfielder was dismissed for two bookable offences within five minutes to leave the visitors a man light for the final hour.Conte immediately responded by replacing Willian with Cesc Fabregas.However, that did little to stem Watford’s tide and they went in front when Thibaut Courtois brought down Deulofeu as he rounded the goalkeeper.Deeney made amends for his previous miss by burying the resulting penalty into the bottom corner.Watford continued to pose the greater threat after the break as Deulofeu and Richarlison sent shots inches wide of Courtois’ left-hand post.The Belgian keeper then had to be at his best to turn Doucoure’s drive behind.Giroud was finally handed his debut for the final 25 minutes in place of Pedro, who hobbled off with a nasty looking injury that could make him a doubt to face old side Barcelona in Chelsea’s Champions League last 16 tie in two weeks’ time.An individual moment of magic from Hazard gave Chelsea hope when he curled into the far corner from 25 yards for his 13th goal of the season.Daryl Janmaat fires Watford back in front with a brilliant solo goal © AFP / Glyn KIRKParity only lasted two minutes, though, as Janmaat played a brilliant one-two with Pereyra before slotting past a helpless Courtois to spark wild scenes of celebration at Vicarage Road.Deulofeu sealed the points two minutes later when he fired across Courtois with Chelsea’s tired defence pulled apart.And Pereyra rubbed salt in the champions’ wounds with a brilliant finish from a narrow angle in stoppage time.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

We had a champagne reception, a five course meal, wedding cake, wedding band and a wedding DJ. “There was a lot of letting out and letting in of dresses but all the girls looked fantastic.“It was great to wear the wedding dresses again but this time it didn’t have the pressure of being on display because there were lots of girls in their wedding dresses,” she said.The most mature bride of the evening was Evelyn Nelson who first walked down the aisle 52 years ago.“I never thought I would be wearing my wedding dress again but we had the most wonderful evening.“All the girls looked fabulous and it was for a great cause.

MORE DETAILS of the horrific death of Co Donegal man William McKeeney emerged in a Scottish court today where two men are charged with his racially-motivated murder.Mr McKeeney, from Malin Head, was allegedly kicked to death by two men in an attack on Melville Street in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow in January.His partner witnessed the attack from the flat they shared – and last Friday’s court heard how the incident was heard on a mobile phone. The jury in the trial of Adel Ishaq and Asif Rehman was today shown graphic post mortem photographs of Mr McKeeney’s body.A patholgist told his murder trial that his injuries were similar to those sustained by somebody who had fallen from a high building or been knocked over by a car.Dr McAdam told the High Court in Kilmarnock that the 57-year-old suffered 15 injuries to the head, some of which were so severe that footprints were left on his skin.She also said that there were three injuries to his body, but these were only discovered on internal examination.She said that one blow had ruptured his diaphragm and another had ruptured the splenic artery, a major blood vessel.She told the jury that the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the abdomen, with blunt force trauma to the head a contributory factor.The court has heard that labourer Mr McKeeney had been walking home from a local pub when he was attacked. He died later in hospital.The accused men deny murder.The prosecution allege that Donegal man was attacked because he was white.MURDERED DONEGAL MAN WAS KICKED SO HARD, FOOTPRINTS WERE LEFT ON HIS SKIN was last modified: October 9th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:FOOTPRINTS WERE LEFT ON HIS SKINMURDERED DONEGAL MAN WAS KICKED SO HARDwilliam mckeeney
Preview Full Schedule Roster Next Game: Drake sophomore goalkeeper Kelsie Stone (Hoffman Estates, Ill.) recorded her second shutout of the season. Stone tallied two saves. Junior Cassie Rohan (Palatine, Ill.) and Walls led the Bulldogs with three shots while Lyjak finished with two. In its first overtime contest of 2018, Drake (4-7-0, 1-0-0 MVC) earned a critical three points to start MVC play with Lyjak’s first goal of the season and third of her career. The goal came after freshman Alison Walls (Kansas City, Mo.) had her shot blocked but got the ball back and passed it sideways to Lyjak who was able to hold off her defender and send her shot high past Valparaiso (3-5-1, 0-1-0 MVC) goalkeeper, Kezia Gesell from 15 yards out. PDF Box Score VALPARAISO, Ind. – Junior Shelley Lyjak (Bartlett, Ill.) scored a golden goal in the 97th minute for the Drake University women’s soccer team Sunday, Sept. 23 in a 1-0 road win at Valparaiso in the Missouri Valley Conference opener for both teams. Illinois State 9/29/2018 – 7 PM Story Links “This is a great way to start MVC play,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “The first half was back-and-forth, but we really started to put Valpo under pressure in the second half when we did a better job of winning first and second balls in midfield. We lacked a bit of composure in and around the box to start the second half, but gained confidence that we carried into overtime. Both Ali and Shelley worked to unbalance their defenders, and we need more of that moving forward. Across the board our individual defending was much better, so we are pleased to earn the shutout. This was our first game at Valparaiso and I have to say the energy from our bench was so impactful that it didn’t feel like a road game. We will need the same effort and energy on Saturday against a very good Illinois State side.” Live Stats Following Sunday’s game, Drake returns home Sept. 29 to host Illinois State.
