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

I would have liked two more wins. The positive side is the final is in Hyderabad — if we go that far. My hope is we are going to.”“We have been playing good cricket thus far, and need to keep the momentum going and continue to work as hard as we can. Some games have been tough. There has been a bit of the dew factor. Things can be different from one game to another,” he says.On the performance of young cricketers in the IPL, Warner said “Young kids play with lot of freedom. There is not much expectation and pressure on them. That is when you get a chance to express yourself and make a mark. It is not just about one good season, but about the next couple of years: how they shape themselves and plan as bowlers would get better and work you out.”On being a leading run getter in tests and one-dayers, Williamson said, “I don’t look too far ahead. I just take it one game at a time and try and contribute to the team I am in. It is as simple as that.”“I am enjoying my association with the IPL. This is my third year here. It is wonderful to see the popularity of the game and the passion around it. Naturally, it provides an opportunity to be part of a fantastic competition,” he said.Asics, the six-decades-old Japanese manufacturer of running shoes, derives its name from the acronym of the Latin phrase anima sana in corpore sano, which means “A sound mind in a sound body.”Warner said, “The brand continuously stimulates me to keep pushing my boundaries, and I am hoping to have a great stint at this year’s IPL.” × Published oncenter_img Hopes SRH will be in the IPL final this year on home turf Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner (L) and Kane Williamson at the ASICS store, Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad on Friday. – Photo: Nagara Gopal COMMENTS IPL 2017 SHARE SHARE EMAIL cricketlast_img read more

Low house prices the new norm

first_imgNew figures from Commonwealth Bank show the annual average pace of housing appreciation in Australia has been 1.8 per cent since the financial crisis, substantially below the 8 per cent average over the prior 20 years. It warned that a lower pace of appreciation was the “new normal.” “There is a risk that some purchase decisions that were made on the expectation of higher long-run average growth rates may have to be reassessed,” it said. Property analyst Mark Armstrong predicted appreciation would be slowest for home owners in outer suburbs, who could see negative to zero growth in values for as many as 20 years.
