Bassa Political Differences Finally Resolved

first_imgThe political power struggle that engulfed Grand Bassa County in the past months which forced former Superintendent Etweda Cooper out of office has been resolved, Superintendent Levi Demah told President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf over the weekend in Buchanan.Stakeholders in the county have now resolved to work together to move the county forward and to ensure development that the county yearns for, he told the President.There have been persistent concerns that Grand Bassa is divided on political issues based on deceptive politics which were impediments to the progress of the county.Former Supt. Cooper resigned early September 2015 following months of stand-off with the county’s Legislative Caucus over the use of the county’s development fund. Madam Cooper stated that her resignation was the best way forward for the county amid an atmosphere of calumny, invective, intense acrimony, and deliberately circulated falsehoods that typify political and societal exchanges in the county.“We have resolved all our differences and have agreed to work together for the betterment of Grand Bassa. This is evidenced by the presence of all of our lawmakers and some of our eminent citizens,” Demah told President Sirleaf at the dedicatory ceremony of the newly constructed Buchanan City Hall. The Chairperson of the Grand Bassa County Legislative caucus, Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence, also spoke favorably about the working relationships that now exist in the county and expressed happiness that calm has returned to ensure the development of the county.Resolving the county’s political differences was in fulfillment of a promise made by Superintendent Demah when he took office.At his induction ceremony, Demah said although expectations were high, people should be reminded that no leader could make it alone.“Our stewardship will be participatory and consultative,” he further said. “No one should feel and will not be marginalized in this new equation…”Demmah promised to avoid deceptive politics to encourage unity and regain the deserving relevance the county needed and noted that reconciliation and unity, Youth development, an improved financial management system and infrastructure development were his priorities.The return of smooth working relationship to the county between the local government and the Legislative Caucus was also echoed by the Liberia Traditional Council Chairman Zanzan Karwor. “We are happy that our children have now agreed to work together again. This is the only way our county will develop,” he said.Supt. Demah did a great job to bring all the stakeholders to agree to work together. “Madam President, our new superintendent is working hard. He has made everybody to come together to work for this county. We are happy that you brought this man here,” chairman Kawor declared.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

NFL notes: Bledsoe, Horn are among cuts

first_imgAlso, Pro Bowl fullback Lorenzo Neal, who wasn’t eligible for free agency, received a three-year contract extension from the Chargers. Pittsburgh cut linebacker Porter, an outspoken sack specialist whose trash-talking was one of the subplots leading up to the 2006 Super Bowl, won by the Steelers. Minnesota released three former starters: cornerback Fred Smoot, tight end Jermaine Wiggins and tackle Mike Rosenthal. Lions trade Bly to Broncos: The Detroit Lions will trade cornerback Dre’ Bly to the Denver Broncos for running back Tatum Bell, offensive tackle George Foster and a fifth-round pick, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. Also: Jacksonville signed running back Fred Taylor to a three-year contract extension that could keep him with the Jaguars through the 2010 season. Agent Drew Rosenhaus said the four-year deal totaled $23 million. … Tampay Bay signed fullback Mike Alstott to a one-year contract and released offensive tackle Kenyatta Walker, who missed most of last season with a knee injury. … The New York Jets locked up receiver Jerrico Cotchery on a long-term deal. … Defensive lineman Bryant Young, the last member of the San Francisco 49ers from the Super Bowl years, agreed to stay on for a 14th season with the 49ers, and San Francisco also waived troubled receiver Antonio Bryant. … Carolina got under the cap by renegotiating the contracts of quarterback Jake Delhomme, defensive end Mike Rucker and linebacker Dan Morgan. … Bill Parcells is returning to ESPN, the network he left before signing on to coach the Dallas Cowboys. Parcells was unveiled as part of the cable network’s “Monday Night Countdown” crew that will precede the network’s game telecasts. He had been an analyst on ESPN’s Sunday pregame show in 2002 before leaving to coach the Cowboys. Also cut was Horn, the 35-year-old wide receiver whose image did a 180-degree turn after Hurricane Katrina forced the team from its home and left it to spend the 2005 season in Texas. He was let go at his own request after he declined to take a pay cut. San Diego cut McCardell, the wide receiver who turned 37 in January. The Chargers also let go two troubled players: linebacker Steve Foley, who missed the season after being shot by a policeman, and safety Terrence Kiel, who pleaded guilty last month to felony and misdemeanor drug charges for shipping codeine-based cough syrup to Texas. And linebacker Donnie Edwards, who had a team-high 170 tackles but fell into disfavor with Chargers general manager A.J. Smith, will be allowed to leave as an unrestricted free agent. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

DONEGAL MAN ASKED TO HEAD UP TASK FORCE TO SAVE QUINN GROUP JOBS

first_imgA SUCCESSFUL Co Donegal businessman has been asked to head up a task force to save the remaining jobs in the Quinn Group, the businesses taken off the former billionaire Sean Quinn.David Mackey is a former Chief Executive at Quinns and addressed a meeting in Co Cavan last night set up to try to save the remaining positions in the businesses along the Border.The former Cavan and South Tipperary county manager, originally from Letterkenny, rose up through the ranks of the Quinn Group over many years. The Letterkenny man spoke at a meeting set up by Concerned Irish Citizens – a group which campaigns for the Quinn family.However the meeting, which was attended by several TDs, was aimed at saving further job losses in the numerous companies in Derrylin and Ballyconnell which are now run by administrators.A former colleague of Mr Mackey, Denis Doogan – also a former Quinn Group Director – had planned to be at last night’s meeting but had to withdraw because of illness.But a statement read out on his behalf he accused the company’s new bosses of clearing local people out of senior positions and replacing them with people from outside the industries. “When the decision was taken to remove Quinn Insurance and Quinn Group from the control of Sean Quinn, the dawn of one of the greatest cover ups in the history of the Irish Republic had arrived,” said Mr Doogan.“This cover up has seen the persecution of Sean Quinn and his family over the last two to three years in an attempt to deflect the focus away from a failed banking system.”Mr Mackey then spoke, saying he agreed with what Mr Doogan had said.“What Denis Doogan said was fair and balanced,” he said, urging local TDs to read his letter.He said people needed now however to be positive and look forward. The Letterkenny man was asked if he would consider heading up a task force with local politicians and others to monitor the Quinn jobs that are left.He agreed he would go into talks about it.DONEGAL MAN ASKED TO HEAD UP TASK FORCE TO SAVE QUINN GROUP JOBS was last modified: December 3rd, 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:DONEGAL MAN ASKED TO HEAD UP TASK FORCE TO SAVE QUINN GROUP JOBSlast_img read more

Brave Donegal girl plans to donate her hair for charity

first_imgLittle Chloe McCauley, aged six, is going to donate her blonde hair to charity and raise money for a special baby at the same time.Chloe will be having a haircut fundraiser on December 20th which is going to be in aid of baby Aoibhinn McGowan and her family. One-year-old baby Aoibhinn was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in July and has been getting treatment in John’s Ward, Crumlin Children’s Hospital. Chloe’s mother, Charlotte McCauley, said she was personally affected by Aoibhinn’s story and was inspired to help her family. She suggested to Chloe that she could help the family as she planned to get her long hair cut.“Myself and my husband would do a lot of charity work ourselves. We had a stillborn daughter some years ago and now raise awareness for bereavement charities. When I heard about Aoibhinn’s story I knew was it was like for the family. I felt sorry for them because I know what her family is going through,” Charlotte said.Baby Aoibhinn’s mother Maeve is originally from Gortahork and her father Dean is from Arranmore. They have three young girls – twins Aoibhinn and Alice and their younger sister Ava. Aoibhinn McGowanLittle Chloe was talking about her next haircut when Charlotte had the idea to tell her about the Little Princess Trust. The charity accepts donations of hair to be made into wigs for sick children.Charlotte then thought of combining Chloe’s hair donation with a fundraising event for Aoibhinn.“Aoibhinn has just started a new dose of chemotherapy. We are worried now that she is going to be very sick over Christmas. We just want to help the family as Aoibhinn will be going down a tough road over Christmas,” Charlotte said.Chloe’s blond hair reaches far down her back, and even though she loves her locks, Charlotte said that she is happy to donate it. “She herself calls it her ‘Rapunzel hair,” Charlotte said.Peter Mark in Letterkenny have sponsored the haircut, and Charlotte plans to do a livestream of the event. Chloe’s long locks will be chopped up into a bob, or as long as she can leave it that is appropriate for school.“Chloe understands that she is helping somebody, and she’s very proud that her hair is going to help a wee girl that is sick,” Charlotte said. “Everyone is sending messages to say how proud they are for her being so young to do it.”“She’s an emotional little girl. She was only very young when we lost our baby,” Charlotte said, looking back on when she and her husband William’s baby was stillborn in 2013.Charlotte has set up a Go Fund Me campaign page ahead of Chloe’s haircut on December 3rd in Peter Mark Hairdressing. She said that Chloe is asking for donations of as little as €1 or €2, with all proceeds going to Aoibhinn’s fund.Visit the GoFundMe page for more information.

CRISIS COUNSELLING TO BE OFFERED TO GAOTH DOBHAIR SEX ABUSE VICTIMS

first_imgSinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty has welcomed confirmation from the HSE this evening that a multi-agency response, including support and counselling services for victims, will be announced tomorrow in response to the conviction of Michael Ferry for raping four young boys.Speaking this evening Deputy Doherty said there may be more victims in the area and it is important that there are services in place to support all of those who have been affected by the actions of Michael Ferry both directly and indirectly.Deputy Doherty said: “I contacted the HSE today and informed them that it is my strong view that a statutory response is needed in Gaoth Dobhair to help the victims of Michael Ferry. “This must include support and counselling services for all those affected by this mans actions both directly and indirectly.“It is my understanding that these services will be provided and will be announced tomorrow morning and I welcome that commitment.“It  is  quite  possible that there are more victims out there that have not come forward yet and it is very important that services are in place for these people.”Earlier Mr Doherty told Shaun Doherty on Highland Radio that he knew Ferry and had also witnessed his inappropriate behaviour – which had realised after hearing about the court case.“He would say he was a black belt in karate; he would be grabbing you and throwing you to the ground.“What sparked my memory was one of the victims in the court mentioned how Mickey would throw him to the ground and start by tickling him.“Looking back now, when I put myself back into the situation, that type of behaviour was completely inappropriate.”Mr Doherty said many teenagers – including himself – had hung around the premises at Ardscoil Mhuire where Ferry was the caretaker.“I remember one incident where he loaned a few of us a tent and we put it up to stay out for the night. But – I can’t remember whether it was me or one of the other fellas – but he slipped one of us a written note, saying he would call back that night. I remember we took the tent down straight away and went home.”In a statement the directors of the premises where Ferry abused his victims before and after they dismissed him as a caretaker expressed their regret at the case and “the pain, suffering and distress experienced by them by his criminal actions”.They said he had been fired from his job 10 years ago – however they did pay him for odd jobs after that date.They said they were unaware that Ferry continued to use the premises where to locals – many of whom we spoke to today – he was still seen as the ‘caretaker’.The statement said: “Following his arrest in 2001 and prior to his subsequent conviction he was dismissed from his post as caretaker. This dismissal took place at a formal meeting, attended by two directors of Coláiste Cholmcille.“Teaching staff at the college were informed of his dismissal and the reasons for same.“Over subsequent years, on occasion, whilst the building was vacant and not in use, Micheal Ferry, on an intermittent basis and always in the company of other building workers, participated in effecting necessary repairs.”The school insisted Ferry was never unaccompanied during his subsequent employment.However, the directors said with the benefit of hindsight, in the light of the information now available “we regret having allowed this”.In its statement, the school said intermittent security checks of the building during its long periods of unoccupancy did not reveal evidence of unauthorised use.“However, information emerging from the recent court case states that Micheal Ferry continued to access the building subsequent to his dismissal as caretaker in 2001.”“As already stated this was an unused and unoccupied building for approximately nine months of every year. Apart from the above mentioned periods of authorised accompanied access, any other access of the building by Micheal Ferry was totally unauthorised.”Basically the school directors say they didn’t know he was using the building and was doing so without their authority.* Do you have a picture of Michael Ferry or know more about it?
