FLY Prez. Aspirant Wants Gov’t Address ‘Crazy People’ Problem

first_imgA presidential aspirant for the leadership Federation of Liberia Youth, (FLY) Mr. Maxwell Grigsby, has called on this government to remove ‘crazy people’ from the streets and along the countryside.Mr. Grigsby said that a situation of un-well people walking aimlessly around Monrovia was embarrassing for the general public—especially children—and wondered why no institution has seized the opportunity to do something about correcting such an ugly situation.These ‘challenged’ individuals are Liberians and should be able to command some degree of consideration and care from the institutions responsible to provide such—the aspirant decided to let it be known—tacitly (without saying it) placing the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare ‘on the spot.’ ”    Speaking tlast week, at the official launch of a student-based organization: the Innovative Yellow House of the Muslim Congress, Mr. Grigsby noted that the Ministry of Health appears askance (doubtful) about whether or not it can deal with the depressing situation.   “The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare must or should have a budget for taking off the streets—as some nations around the world do—people who might not be responsible for their actions,” Mr. Grigsby continued.“Sometimes these individuals are seen strutting the streets without clothes on; our children are on their way from school and find themselves, unexpectedly, glaring at such obscene and unwholesome spectacles that could be traumatizing(causing emotional shock or distress) for them—and even some senior citizens,” the speaker declared.He used the occasion to encourage students to regard (see) themselves as a new generation of Liberians. “You must keep readying and studying hard; that will enable you to tackle some of the issues related to education, for the betterment of the country,” he reassured.“You need to have a role model and work extremely hard to ensure that your dream is realized; nothing comes easily in life without something or someone to emulate or look up to,” he pointed out.Mr. Grigsby called on students around the country to remain focused and do all within their power for success, as they march towards the future.(With an assist from Keith Neville A.

Basketball Fate Still Uncertain

first_imgBasketball chief Rufus Anderson, over the weekend, was hospitalized and diagnosed suffering from ‘high blood pressure’ and might not continue negotiation with aggrieved stakeholders, until after Doctors’ prescribed days of rest.High blood pressure is a common condition in which the force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease. Blood pressure is determined by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries — stress and lose-sleep are some of the causes.Speaking with the Daily Observer on Saturday, Mr. Anderson said he might also cut-off his cell phones, which is necessary for speedy recovery.The outgoing president, for about two months has been under severe pressure from aggrieved stakeholders over his alleged financial and administrative malpractices.On Thursday, Feb. 26 some aggrieved basketball players and stakeholders stormed the Broad Street’s Sports Commission with anti-Anderson banners, calling for his non-participation in the ensuring LBA elections, and sealed the two entrances.But Anderson is poised for re-election to steer the affairs of the country’s second popular sports in which over 40,000 persons are actively involved.The aggrieved stakeholders, on the following day (Friday, 27 February), refused to accept the proposition of a vice president’s slot and four slots on the Executive Committee.The aggrieved stakeholders insisted on three of four of the vice presidents’ slots, which included Administration, Operations and Finance/Marketing.The remaining slots, president, secretary general and vice president for manpower development are said to be for the president, and EC slots are to be for the clubs to decide, which Anderson also declined.The deadlock resulted to the cancellation of election on Saturday, 28 February, for the fourth time.According to basketball constitution, election is held in November of every four years, but the outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) has shifted the dates.Recently held meeting at the Youth and Sport Ministry under the supervision of Minister Lenn Eugene Nagbe, also ended into a deadlock.The LBA leadership has refused to cut-off the 14 embattled 3rd division clubs, arguing that they are legitimate, while the aggrieved stakeholders are on the contrary and which is the main reason for stalling the elections.Many believe that with the continued deadlock in the basketball elections, the Liberia National Olympic Committee (LNOC) would suspend the basketball leadership and activities, until a compromise is reached.However, it means that the hope of over 40,000 Liberians and foreigners, who were actively involved in the game, might be on hold– as you may be aware that basketball activities were suspended in June-2014 owing to the Ebola virus.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

No pay no play – K’Ogalo players down tools

first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia players on the pitch during their Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Shield Quarter Finals defeat to Kariobangi Sharks. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 13 – Just less than three days before their Kenyan Premier League clash against Thika United, champions in elect Gor Mahia are staring at taking a half-fit squad for the clash with the players having boycotted training over unpaid salary and winning bonuses.As at Thursday morning, the players were yet to report to training, four days after their scheduled return from the international break. “I just spoke to the TM (Team Manager) this morning and he told me the players have said they will not resume training until their salaries and bonuses are paid. Honestly, I don’t know which squad I will take to Thika,” head coach Dylan Kerr told Capital Sport.The players are said to be owed August salaries as well as match winning bonuses for eight games; two from the Confederations Cup and six from the KPL.Club chairman Ambrose Rachier is out of the country and according to a section of players who spoke to Capital FM, that is the source of all the problems.Vice Chairman John Pesa has admitted that indeed they owe the players arrears but notes that has been occasioned because of the delay in receiving funds from sponsors and the sale of left back Godfrey Walusimbi to South African giants Kaizer Chiefs.Gor Mahia players celebrate one of their four goals against Yanga during a CAF Confederation Cup game at Kasarani on July 18, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond Makhaya“Yes, we owe the players, but it is because there is some money we have not received and we expect it by the end of the week. We will talk to the players and ask them to be patient as we get the cash. It is not a good situation but we shall resolve,” Pesa said.But, the players have said they are yet to hear from the officials concerning their grievances and have vowed not to return to training until their unpaid salary and bonuses hit their accounts.“We have not trained this week and I don’t think we will until we are paid. The worst thing is that no one is communicating to us. We have not been told anything so we are left to wonder. If we keep quiet, they will take advantage of us,” one of the players said.Another one added; “People are suffering in here. On the outside, people will look at us and all the success we have had and they will think we live the best lives ever. It’s not the case. We have worked hard as players to put the team high up there but most of the times we feel like our efforts are not being replicated.”“A team-mate just told me his house was almost being locked because he hasn’t paid rent and I had to dip into my savings and help him out. It is the case with many other players.”Kerr is disturbed with the ongoings at the club especially at a time when he wants to finish the season strongly aiming at maximum points in all the remaining games.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr waves on the touchline during the CAF Confederations Cup tie against Rayon Sport at the Kasarani Stadium on August 18, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“I am devastated because of this. It is detrimental to everything we are trying to do as a club. I don’t want my players going on strike. It is not good for us, it is not good for them. But at the same time, the club has to take care of the players and their welfare. This should not be happening in modern football,” Kerr further opined.The players now say most of them are ready to leave if a good offer comes on the table, only for better terms.“I can’t blame Wazza (Walusimbi) and Meddie for leaving. I wouldn’t have blamed Kachi (Francis Kahata) if he left. When you are not treated like the big player you are and a good offer comes, what would prevent you from leaving,” another player posed.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Axed boss is ‘confident’ he WOULD have avoided drop with Newcastle

first_img1 Former England boss Steve McClaren was sacked by the Premier League strugglers on Friday Steve McClaren has expressed his disappointment after being relieved of his duties at Newcastle United.The former England boss was sacked by the Premier League strugglers on Friday, with the Magpies 19th and one point from safety.McClaren’s last game in charge was a home defeat to Bournemouth, with the writing on the wall in the aftermath of the loss.The 54-year-old took training on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before he was replaced by Rafa Benitez on Friday.His position became untenable with his 28 league games bringing just six wins and 24 points despite an investment in the playing staff in excess of £82million.However, he remained insistent that he would have kept the club up given the opportunity.In a statement released through the League Managers’ Association, McClaren said: “I am obviously very disappointed with the decision.“I appreciate any frustrations relating to the team’s results and the club subsequently finding itself in a battle to avoid relegation. I remain confident, however, that we would have stayed in the Premier League with a view to building for next season.“Whilst there has been a lot of intense speculation surrounding my position over recent days, my sole priority has been to maintain my professionalism and carry on with my work to best prepare the team.“I would like to place on record what a privilege it has been to manage Newcastle United Football Club. It is a great a club – the embodiment of the city, with incredible supporters.“For every supporter of Newcastle United, I genuinely hope the club can produce the results I believe they are capable of, between now and the end of the season, to maintain their Premier League status.“Newcastle United is a club that must build for the long term to deliver what the supporters deserve – success and silverware.”Charnley paid tribute to McClaren’s dignity for the way he had handled a difficult situation.He said: “I would like to thank Steve personally for his services to Newcastle United. He is a man of integrity and class and he has conducted himself with great dignity during this difficult time.”READ: Joey Barton warns ‘top level’ manager Rafa Benitez: ‘If people don’t start putting the effort in, Newcastle United are in big trouble’last_img read more

United fans, time to ease off LVG? Four things the Dutchman deserves credit for

first_img 4. Keeping Manchester United afloat this season – read all about it, then click the arrow above to see three more things Van Gaal deserves credit for – The pressure on Van Gaal this term has been intense. For weeks, reports persistently claimed United were prepared to ditch the Dutchman and bring in sacked Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. There’s no question this will have been a difficult time, personally, for United’s manager. While some cracks have shown, however, he hasn’t melted under the heat. Instead, the Red Devils have stayed within touching distance of the top four and now, after victory over rivals City, they are just one point off the Premier League’s elite bracket. For now, they could also win silverware, in the shape of the FA Cup, which is more than can be said for Chelsea or Arsenal. 4 4 4 3. Luring major names to Old Trafford, even if they haven’t been successful – Angel Di Maria, Victor Valdes and Radamel Falcao didn’t deliver at Old Trafford, but there is absolutely no guarantee players from overseas will adapt to life in England. Brushing their influence – or rather, lack thereof – aside, what’s most important is Van Gaal hasn’t struggled to lure such distinguished names to Manchester. Despite their failure, the former Netherlands manager, a year later, signed Bastian Schweinsteiger and Anthony Martial. Van Gaal is clearly respected across Europe and hasn’t deterred players from joining his squad. 4 2. Keeping hold of De Gea – United may be a little fortunate given his move to Real Madrid fell through due to paperwork issues, but this shouldn’t overshadow the role that Van Gaal will have had in seeing the goalkeeper commit his future to the club. Such is his temperament, many may have been expecting the Spaniard to be frozen out at Old Trafford; yet the former Netherlands manager handled the situation well, bringing the stopper back into the side only once his future had been decided. And again, De Gea has been one of the Red Devils’ most consistent performers. 1. His commitment to the academy – While many criticise Van Gaal for falling behind in the Premier League and struggling in Europe, if there’s one thing he really deserves credit for, it’s his desire to nurture young blood at the club. Rather than play senior players out of position when others have suffered injured, the Dutchman has trusted those from his academy to make the step up. Marcus Rashford is currently stealing the headlines having followed up his brace against Arsenal by scoring the winner at the Etihad. The striker, however, isn’t alone in making the breakthrough. Jesse Lingard, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Donald Love are just a few to have been handed their debut by Van Gaal. Would Mourinho have been so trusting? Probably not. Louis van Gaal has come under fire this season.The Manchester United manager has been the subject of intense frustration from the Old Trafford with, at various stages in the campaign, many calling for his head.As April closes in, though, the Dutchman firmly remains in charge of the Premier League giants and it’s looking increasingly likely that he’ll see out the remaining year of his contract.So, the last eight months may not have been too enjoyable for the club’s supporters, but is it time to lay off Van Gaal?Taking this question into consideration, here are four things the 64-year-old deserves credit for – take a look by viewing the slideshow above.last_img read more

DRUNKEN FINN HARPS FAN GAVE ONE-FINGERED SALUTE TO GARDA

first_imgA FINN HARPS fan who got drunk and gave ‘the finger’ to a passing Garda has been warned about his future behaviour.Damian Woods, Quinn Place, Ballybofey, was drunk at the time and had never been in trouble before, a court heard.On November 4th last year, Garda Inspector Michael Harrison told Letterkenny District Court today, the 30-year-old was at Main Street in Ballybofey. He approach a Garda who was nearby in a patrol car, went up to the window and gave the Garda a “one-fingered salute.”He then became abusive.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher, defending, said Woods was “deeply remorseful.”He had been at a football match and was heavily intoxicated.“It’s not in his character; the actions were appalling on the night in question,” said Mr Gallagher.“Mr Woods is a man who has never been before the court before and he has no intention of ever coming back. He has no recollection of the night in question.”Judge Paul Kelly asked: “What’s his problem with Gardai?”Mr Gallagher said that Woods was simply intoxicated and the incident was completely out of character.Judge Kelly ordered Woods to pay the charity Planet Youth in Ballybofey €150 as it was his first offence.DRUNKEN FINN HARPS FAN GAVE ONE-FINGERED SALUTE TO GARDA was last modified: November 4th, 2013 by John2Share 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:DRUNKEN FINN HARPS FAN GAVE ONE-FINGERED SALUTE TO GARDAlast_img read more
