Blow to Powell – Hanover, St James will not support bid for JFF presidency

first_img OUTSIDE SUPPORT However, with St James and Hanover not backing him, and Westmoreland and Trelawny also leaning in the same direction, it would appear Powell will need to look outside his own confederation for support. “We see and feel we are heading in the right direction. The JFF with Captain Burrell at the helm has done more than any other leader in the history of the federation, so why change horse midstream,” said Hanover’s Sheridan Samuels. “There are lots of grassroots programmes ongoing. The overall development of football, at least in my association, is as a result of the work of this administration. We, therefore, see no need to change at this time,” he noted. In addition, Samuels said that Jamaica’s recent performance at the Gold Cup, and past accomplishments of qualifying for the 1998 World Cup Finals in France, plus qualification to the Under-17 (twice), and Under-20 World Cups give Burrell a big advantage in staving off any challenges that may emerge. The JFF nominations for elections will close on Thursday. WESTERN BUREAU: Early indications are suggesting that Montego Bay businessman Orville Powell may fail to secure the four required nominations to formulate his challenge against current Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) President, Captain Horace Burrell, as the St James Football Association voted not to back him in a meeting on Monday night. It is also mooted that Hanover, led by Sheridan Samuels, who is seen as a key Burrell backer, will not support Powell in his move to win the nomination to contest the election against the former army man. The St James FA, headed by Gregory Daley, carried out a vote at their offices, with seven delegates voting against a move to support Powell. It comes as no surprise, as immediately after announcing his intentions to challenge Burrell at a press conference last week, information gleaned indicated that the Montego Bay United Football Club owner would have had a difficult time getting support. St James, Westmoreland, Hanover and St James make up the Western Confederation and it is these parishes that Powell was hoping to convince of a need for change in the island’s football regime.last_img read more

Flawed Communication Strategies by Officials May Undermine the Government

first_imgThe inception of the Weah Administration in 2018 came with challenges ranging from economic to social issues, and all these have to do with employing or giving positions to people on sentiments and not qualification or competence. One major issue that continues to manifest the incompetence of most of the officials in this administration is a poor and disorganized communication approach.Mulbah Morlu, Chairman of the ruling party, is noted for sending out unfounded and unsubstantiated information and comments that have the propensity to derail the already struggling image of the government without the thought of the consequences of such comments.We recall when Morlu in 2018 rained insults on former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf when she commented on the alleged missing L$16 billion, he declared publicly that he knows who are connected to the missing money. He  further accused the Alternative National Congress (ANC) political leader, Alexander B. Cummings of allegedly paying people to get into the streets to protest for the alleged missing money, although he could not prove a single iota of evidence to substantiate his claims.Morlu is also on record for making blunt and irresponsible accusation against the LoneStar Cell MTN of monitoring people’s calls and messages on the internet; something he could not prove with any piece of evidence.From all indications, Liberians have become discontented and agitated over bad governance and the declining economy and have therefore resolved to protest action to be staged on June 7. But Mulbah Morlu has come out again accusing former President Sirleaf of providing financial support to the protesters to rise against the George Weah Administration.It is a damning accusation if only Mr. Morlu can prove his claim. This former President, during the presidential election of 2017, had conveyed a distinct impression that she was not interested in the victory of her own Vice President Joseph N. Boakai.And despite accusations made against her at the time by members of the Unity Party that she was no longer supporting the party on whose platform she held the presidency for two terms, former President Sirleaf remained nonplused and instead proceeded to invite President George Weah and Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor to Bong County to break ground for the Lofa Road corridor while campaign was still ongoing.It can also be recalled that while appearing for the last time at the United Nations General Assembly in September of 2017, President Sirleaf in a CNN interview stated rather bluntly that it was “time for generational change” a subtle inference to George Weah then waiting in the wings.These two instances set the basis for public debate and it was widely deduced that the former President supported the CDC in the past elections.We also recall on two occasions where this former President appeared on radio and called on Liberians to support this administration, suggesting that “If it fails, it will be all Liberians who have failed.” She also availed herself to assist the administration with her expertise to tackle difficult economic issues confronting the economy of the country.Until proven substantially that she supports protesters, we continue to hold his (Morlu) comments suspect, especially for this former President, whose activities and comments during the last electoral season had conveyed the distinct impression that she virtually ushered President Weah into office.However in the May 6, 2019 edition of the Daily Observer, Information Minister Eugene Nagbe dismissed Morlu’s claim that former President Sirleaf was giving out cash and moral support to protesters to take to the streets on June 7.We at the Daily Observer hold that such comments as Morlu’s are of no help to the President, and that those officials spewing inflammatory rhetoric on social media and on the airwaves should take a cue from the axing of Deputy Information Minister Eugene Fahngon and comport themselves accordingly. Interestingly, President Weah himself is beginning the see the importance of order in the government’s communication structure, and has finally allowed the Minister of Information — in this case, Eugene Nagbe — to finally do his job. Officials of the Executive Branch of government and of the ruling party will have to observe decorum and the President, with the help of the Justice Minister, will have to enforce it.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Radar eyed for another former country road

first_imgThe Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday will vote on a recommendation from the Public Works Department to allow the CHP to use radar to snag speeders. The board will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the county Hall of Administration in downtown Los Angeles. The speed limit on Pico Canyon is 50 mph from Whispering Oaks Road to The Old Road and 40 mph from there west to Chiquella Lane, where there are fast-food restaurants, inns and gas stations at the busy freeway stop. Approval would allow the county Department of Public Works to work with the CHP to implement radar speed enforcement. Radar patrols already are allowed on neighboring streets in the area. Using radar to track and ticket speeders is expected to significantly reduce the accident potential, according to a public works report on the plan. Any expenses would be assumed by the CHP. County government and the CHP have been working together on radar enforcement for 20 years. pat.aidem@dailynews.com (661) 257-5251160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But as natural scenery gives way to a row of trees spaced with precision along the concrete sidewalk passing new tracts of homes, a plan for radar speed patrols makes more sense. Once again, city life meets countryside in the Santa Clarita Valley, where once-rustic highways become racetracks for suburbanites heading out. Residents of Stevenson Ranch, in the tracts that have changed the face of the historic canyon, are pleading for help from the California Highway Patrol to slow traffic on the canyon road that has been widened to serve a growing area, passing two parks and an elementary school along the way. last_img read more

Messi, the superstar illuminating a small Russian town

first_img0Shares0000Lionel Messi and Argentina have sprinkled stardust over a small Moscow town not used to such celebrity © AFP/File / JUAN MABROMATABRONNITSY, Russian Federation, Jun 15 – Lionel Messi’s arrival in Bronnitsy, a quiet town with 20,000 residents some 50km southeast of Moscow, has brought an unprecedented level of attention to a place most renowned for its Archangel Michael cathedral.But as the euphoric shouts echoing around a temporary stand suggests, its selection as Argentina’s team base camp has transformed it into one of the epicentres of the World Cup. Flags bearing Messi’s face hang over barriers, while a giant mural of the Barcelona star towers above the people of Bronnitsy as they come to terms with the intense spotlight now fixated on their hometown.Never has it been subjected to such scrutiny, and perhaps never again will this town founded in the middle of the 15th century attract such global recognition.Around 400 fans flocked to Argentina’s base camp on Monday for the team’s first open training session, each and every one desperate to steal a glimpse of Messi in the flesh.None of them were yelling “Aguero”, “Mascherano” or “Higuain”. They were all waiting for Messi to emerge from a building by the training ground and began to eagerly chant his name.“Messi! Messi!” they screamed, trying to draw the attention of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. He duly obliged, staying behind to sign autographs and posing for photos at the end of the hour-long session, during which his every touch was warmly applauded.The bleachers were full to overflowing and trembled with emotion. But supporters there weren’t the only ones who didn’t want to miss out, Argentina’s ambassador to Russia, Ernesto Lagorio, was also in attendance.“It was great, it went very well, it’s been a nice afternoon,” he told AFP.Others like physical education teacher Lucas Ledezma, who waited for the team’s bus to arrive last Saturday, repeated that same sentiment.“We dream that we can do it, I think it’s a World Cup the national team deserves, that Messi deserves and that all us Argentines deserve,” said the 30-year-old Ledezma, who left the Argentine city of Cordoba in on January 5 and cycled 14,000km to follow the Albiceleste.– ‘Painting a legend’ –A larger-than-life version of Lionel Messi greets passers-by in Bronnitsy © AFP/File / JUAN MABROMATAIf anything is on a par with Messi these days it could be the enormous mural of him that stares out at passers-by on one of the streets adjacent to Bronnitsy’s main road.“When I was painting Messi, I was painting a legend of my time. Messi is one of the best players (in the world),” said 29-year-old street artist Sergey Erofeev, who was commissioned to redesign the wall after winning a competition.Erofeev, still with paint splattered on his trousers and in broken Spanish that he only recently learned, confessed he has a dream of his own.“I want Messi to come and see my work,” he said.Close to Argentina’s training base is a house that has been converted into a makeshift sports bar serving “Mate Listo”, a version of the caffeine-packed drink popular in South America.It’s impossible to walk through Bronnitsy without hearing Messi’s name, mostly in conversations between locals, and his image is everywhere you turn.Only his presence, and the stringent security surrounding him, have managed to alter an otherwise peaceful day in a town that has openly welcomed the striker despite struggling to get close to him.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘Da Vinci’ faces nemesis

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “The Da Vinci Code” author Dan Brown and his courtroom nemesis, Michael Baigent, now have a new rivalry – on the best-seller lists. Brown’s novel goes on sale in paperback today with an advance printing of 5 million copies, the same day HarperSanFrancisco is issuing “The Jesus Papers: Exposing the Greatest Cover-Up in History” by Baigent, with an initial hardcover print run of a much more modest 150,000. Baigent and his former co-author Richard Leigh are awaiting the verdict in a British lawsuit that charges Brown lifted much of his “Da Vinci” plot from their 1982 book “Holy Blood, Holy Grail,” which – like “Jesus Papers” – was marketed as nonfiction. In religious terms, Brown and Baigent are allies. Like the fictional scholars in Brown’s novel, Baigent contends that Jesus wasn’t thought to be divine until long after his era and the New Testament story is pretty much one big fraud. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 As with “Holy Blood,” Baigent supposes that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and sired a child, though he concedes “we are short of evidence – all that we have is circumstantial.” Critics have said even circumstantial evidence is lacking. His new twists have Jewish Zealots who resisted Roman occupation seeking Jesus’ execution as a traitor to their movement while Pontius Pilate “took steps to ensure that Jesus would survive.” After recuperating, Jesus and wife supposedly traveled to upper Egypt and taught mystical lore that inspired ancient Gnostic wisdom. Baigent relies on reports about a text saying Jesus was alive in A.D. 45, which Anglican Canon Alfred Lilley of Hereford, who died in 1948, told the Rev. Douglas Bartlett he’d seen.last_img read more

DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUERESULTS SUNDAYBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionCranford United 0 Gweedore Celtic 0 In a match that had everything apart from goals Gweedore Celtic went away happiest from this final day game for both teams. Cranford had the earliest chance when Shaun Mc Elwaine headed across the goal and Philip Buchanan was inches away from tapping home. Tommy Diver had Gweedore’s best chance when he fired a right foot shot just over the bar. The rest of the half was closely fought with most of the play around the midfield area. The second half saw Gweedore settle for the draw with Paul Rua and Kevin Friel doing well for the away way side. Cranford did have chances through a Kyle Black free kick and Micheal Mc Ginley header but the breakthrough just wouldn’t come. Cranford now await next weeks results with Gweedore Celtic looking ahead to their Ulster Cup final against Glengad. Best for Cranford were Arthur Lynch, Seamus Carr and Seamus Mc Laughlin. Best for Gweedore Ned Curran, Micheal Mc Kelvey and Kevin FrielUlster Junior ShieldMoville Celtic 0 Raphoe Town 1Raphoe Town will fly the Donegal Junior League flag in the inaugural final of the newly formed Ulster Junior Shield competition. Despite the disappointment of missing out on a promotion/relegation play-off spot on goals difference the East Donegal side lifted their spirits and went into this game with the intention of prolonging their season by another few weeks. In a first half dominated by Raphoe Jamie Gallagher scored what was to be the match winning goal. The second half saw Moville Celtic throw everything forward in an effort to get level but Raphoe managed to hold out and it is their name that is in the historic first ever final of this competition. Their opposition will come in the form of Inishowen League outfit Aileach F.C. and no final date is known at time of writing.SATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division OneRamelton Mariners 0 Glencar Celtic 8 On the day that Glencar Celtic were presented with their first ever League Title Trophy they met a Ramelton Mariners side who were unable to match them in any sector of the field. As the final scoreline suggests it was one way traffic from start to finish and many of the usual suspects added to their season’s tallies in the grey and black of the Letterkenny based outfit. Hat-tricks from Paddy Rafferty and Stephen Browne were added to by goals from Marty Brogan and Conor Crossan as the League Champions hit eight without reply. So it was off to celebrate the title for the Glencar Celtic players and for Ramelton Mariners it is a case of rebuilding for next season.Orchard F.C. 5 Mulroy Celtic 1Orchard F.C. claimed all three points from this match. In a tight first half Orchard opened the scoring on twenty minutes when Barney McMenamin broke down the left and slipped a ball through to Chucky Sweeny who slotted past the advancing keeper. The second goal came early in the second half when Luke Friel slotted home from inside the box. Orchard added a third on sixty minutes when Niall Bonner drilled his shot home from the edge of the box and Chucky Sweeney added his second and Orchard fourth on seventy minutes from close range. Mulroy pulled one back on seventy five minutes, a fine shot from the edge of the box. Niall Bonner wrapped up the scoring on eighty minutes when he finished from close range.Best For Orchard F.C. : Niall Bonner, John Boyle and Chic McLaughlin Beat for Mulroy : Team Performance. Referee : Victor RaineyGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoArranmore United 1 Keadue Rovers Reserves 0Arranmore celebrated winning the league with a 1-0 win against local rivals Keadue Rovers Reserves. Keadue were intent on spoiling the party and threatened early on but David Sweeney couldn’t convert. Chris Mc Glanaghy wasted a good chance when he headed over from a Declan Proctor corner. It remained scoreless at the interval. Both sides had chances from set pieces in the 2nd half but neither keeper was tested. Arranmore got the winner in the 85minute as Paul Mc Garvey and Doalty Boyle combined for the latter to head home from 10 yards shortly after coming off the bench.Donegal Junior League Secretary Christina O’ Donnell was present to present Arranmore United team captain, Danny Rodgers, with the Glencar Inn Saturday Division Two cup at the end of the game. There were great scenes of jubilation around Rannagh Park, the attendance boosted by many locals who had returned home from various parts of the world to spend the Easter holidays. The switch to Saturday football has certainly proved to be the saviour of the countries only Island club. For this the club paid thanks to the League Executive and the other clubs who facilitated them in the switch.Glenree United Reserves 4 Gweedore United Reserves 3In glorious conditions in Glenree Park it was the home side that came out on top in the end in this promotion battle with Gweedore United. Gweedore opened the scoring in the 21st minute when Shaun Paul Mc Mahon was put through to beat the out rushing keeper. Both teams created a few half chances before the next goal was scored by Shane Gallagher who headed it into the top corner from a corner kick. Its stayed like this up to half time. Ten minutes into the second half Nicholas Nelis flicked the ball into the net from a corner to give the home side a fighting chance. The home side pushed hard for the equaliser but Gweedore stood strong and regained their two goal lead on the hour mark when, from another corner, Owen Debar finished well to make it a tough last 20 minutes for the home team. John Coll made an inspiring tactical decision to push big John Mc Clafferty into the middle of the field which released Ciaran ‘Macca’ Cunningham, a switch which would pay off later in the match. A free kick was won on the 74th minute. Reliable free kick taker Darren Connor stepped up to beat the keeper who misjudged the flight of the ball. Gweedore were starting to get a little nervy and it got worse for them when Macca spotted the keeper off his line and curled the ball into the top corner, with ten minutes remaining, to level the scoreline. The home side’s tails were up and Gweedore seemed to be out on their feet a little. The Glenree outfit went for the win as the away side seemed to be going defensive. Glenree put them to the sword in the 90th minute when another free kick was awarded 20yards out which invited Vinny Mc Laughlin to hit a sweetly struck shot and watch it sail past a helpless goalie. It was nothing less than what the home side deserved for their second half performance alone. Best for Gweedore United were Shaun Gallagher and Owen Debar. An outstanding team performance from the Glenree United Reserves outfit.WEDNESDAYBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionCurragh Athletic 3 v 4 Milford UnitedSATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division OneRamelton Mariners 0 v 8 Glencar CelticOrchard F.C. 5 v 1 Mulroy CelticGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoArranmore United 1 v 0 Keadue Rovers ReservesGlenree United Reserves 4 v 3 Gweedore United ReservesSUNDAYBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionCranford United 0 v 0 Gweedore CelticMilford United P v P Glenea UnitedUlster Junior ShieldMoville Celtic 0 v 1 Raphoe TownDONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES was last modified: April 20th, 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:Donegal Leaguelast_img read more
