first_imgExcelsior High School’s Shanice Love has been dominant at the regional level.Now, she is celebrating her first title at the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Associ-ation (ISSA)/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships, after a record-breaking performance in the Class One girls discus event.The dominant Love landed the disc an amazing 52.73 metres to erase Tara-Sue Barnett’s 2013 mark of 51.16m.Davia Brown (Hydel High), 42.76m, was second, with St Jago’s Tracey-Ann Simms, 41.52m, taking third.”This is my last Champs and I really wanted to make my mark, and I did,” beamed Love.So with two events scored, Excelsior are out in front of the girls’ race with 15 points, one more than Hydel High (14), followed by St Jago (10), Wolmer’s (nine), Holmwood (seven), Vere Technical (seven), and Buff Bay High (six).Three finals are on for today’s third day of competition among the girls.Defending champion Natalliah Whyte has been a spectator for much of the season as she struggled with a prolonged injury. She was good enough for second place in her Class One 200m heat yesterday, clocking 24.18 to finish behind Holmwood’s Shanta Deer, 24.11.Holmwood’s Ashley Williams, 23.80, was quickest to the line in the heats, with Edwin Allen’s Patrice Moody joining her as the only two athletes to dip below 24 seconds, with a 23.82 win in her heat.St Jago’s Shaniel English was most impressive in the Class Two girls 200m heats, stopping the clock at 24.07 to win her heat with little trouble. Manchester’s Dazsay Freeman clocked 24.18 to win her heat, with Edwin Allen’s Kashieka Cameron also posting the same time in her heat.CLASSOFTHE FIELDHydel’s Gabrielle Matthews, 24.95, was the class of the field in the girls Class Four 200m heats, registering the fastest time as she advanced to today’s semi-final. Edwin Allen’s Bethany Bridge had the second-fastest time – 25.09; with her teammate, Salieci Myles, 25.34; Shantae Williams (St Jago), 25.42; RenÈe-Ashley Jackson, 25.71, also of St Jago; and Hydel’s Omelia Stanley, 25.97, also looked good in qualifying, with the winner expected to come from that bunch.Joanna Reid, the 200m-400m double champion from Class Four last year, was comfortable in winning her Class Four 200m heat, stopping the clock at 24.79. But she will be hard-pressed to win this event with the likes of Kevona Davis (Edwin Allen), who also booked her spot in the next round with a 24.61 win in her heat. Britany Anderson (Vere), 24.40, and Hydel’s Ashanti Moore, 24.72, also made progress.Excelsior’s Ackera Nugent, 24.97, is another one to watch in this event.Edwin Allen’s Cemore Donald has already gone 2:10.09 in the 800m and the defending champion was authoritative in winning her heat and topping all qualifiers into today’s Class Three girls 800m semi-final with a fine 2:16.91 clocking.Her schoolmate, Kayan Green, was also the best in her heat, winning in 2:19.17 with Holmwood’s Delverna Bromfield, 2:20.48 completing the top three qualifiers. Medal favourite Britney Brown (Manchester), 2:24.14 also booked safe passage with a comfortable win in her heat.In Class 2, Chrissani May (Holmwood), who had to play bridesmaid in both the 800m and 1500m at last year’s championships – with two silver medals to her name – was keen to show her intentions at the first chance, posting the fastest time 2:15.31, in yesterday’s 800m qualifiers. Hydel’s Shanique Masters (2:15.60) finish second in the heat and was also the second fastest qualifier, with Vere’s Britnie Dixon, May’s main rival for the gold, also winning her heat comfortably in 2:17.51.Other impressive qualifiers included another Holmwood girl, Brittney Campbell, 2:17.90, Spalding’s Kimone Campbell, 2:18.15, Kelly-Ann Downer (St Andrew), 2:16.76 and Albert Town’s Tasinia Mothersill, 2:17.59.Janell Fullerton, a bronze medal winner for Edwin Allen last year, is safely through to the final of the girls Class One shot put event. Fullerton, who now defends the colours of St Jago, posted 12.12m to lead all qualifiers in her preliminary flight. But it was Immaculate Conception High’s Kadian Clarke who was most impressive, with a 12.31m mark in her flight.Medal contender Latifah Smith (XLCR), barely made it through to the final with a 10.55m effort, while Holmwood’s Georgetta Samuels, 11.89m; STETHS’ Sahjay Stevens, 11.82m and Rashida Elliott, also from Holmwood, 11.50m, where the other impressive qualifiers.Jordan Temple’s (Immaculate), 4.95m, is the best distance among qualifiers to the Class Four girls long jump event, while St Andrew’s Davia Nichol registered 4.92m on her first attempt, with Zourie Smith, also from St Andrew High and another Immaculate student, Shantay Kellyman, both going into the finals with 4.85m efforts.last_img read more


first_imgLofa County Senator George Tengbeh has communicated an official complaint to the plenary of the Liberian Senate, regarding recent verbal exchanges between the Senator and authorities at the Ministry of Finance.Senator Tengbeh at two recent official functions blamed Finance Minister Amara Konneh for being personally responsible for the budget shortfalls the country has experienced over the past two years, and called for his resignation or dismissal.In the communication to the plenary Thursday, May 1, dated April 30, 2014, Sen. Tengbeh pleaded with his colleagues for contemptuous action against Minister Konneh for a release issued against him on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, “using adjectives on me such as comical, reckless and irresponsible while performing my Legislative duties in fulfillment of Rule 57 Sections 1&2 of the standing rules of the Liberian Senate…”Senator Tengbeh who Chairs the Senate Committee on Maritime, and co-chairs Rules, Order & Administration, continued in his communication that: “In addition to the adjectives against me, the Minister of Finance’s release further stated that the National Legislature is the one that has failed to utilize the expertise of the Legislative Budget Office (LBO) to give technical advice on issues relating to the budget.”Senator Tengbeh quoted the Ministry of Finance release against him as saying that Minister Konneh and his team had mobilized close to US$200 million to support small tree crops growers mainly in Lofa County, which he said he knew nothing about as a key stakeholder of the county.The Lofa County lawmaker said he considers the release by the Ministry of Finance against him as disrespect.The Senator noted: “In view of the above, distinguished colleagues, it is clear that the Ministry of Finance obstructed or impeded on my Legislative functions…I therefore beg your indulgence to have the Minister of Finance appear before the Plenary on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 to give reasons as to why he cannot be held in contempt and further clarify the US$200 million he claimed to have raised for the support of small tree crops growers in Lofa.”However, immediately after the reading of Senator Tengbeh’s communication, the plenary went into executive session and no outcome of deliberations was released to the Legislative Press Corps.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img“Dreams are what keep us going, but the passion to pursue is what matter most,” says S. Karie Walker, popular known as John Flomo. “It is upon this belief that I have built myself a reputable career as an actor from poverty to success.”Recently, John and his fellow comedian Isaac Sunday Sieh, another famous locally-based actor commonly known as Paul, signed a contract worth more than US$ 24,000 with telecommunications operator Cellcom, to be the company’s brand ambassadors.After signing with the company, comedian John Flomo bought himself a brand new car.“I endured lots of hardship just to reach this far, and this is just the beginning of my accomplishments,” John said excitedly.Arguably one of the hottest new Lollywood stars, John Flomo has said that his passion to succeed as a comedian in Liberia was marred by disappointment and setbacks. But regardless of the pains, “hope” kept his dream alive.“Life was hard, so hard that at times I had to beg people just to earn a living. I could not even afford money to buy L$15 candle, and sleeping with friends was an every day thing,” he narrated. “I was often overlooked by my peers, just because things were hard on me.”He has disclosed that poverty droved him out of the University of Liberia and there was no other option, and the only option was to focus on his career as an actor.“I was laughed at from the beginning, and people said that making movies in Liberia was useless and that there was no benefit in being a Liberian movie star,” John reflected, adding, “But they were entitled to their opinions and I didn’t have to go along with what they said. As God would have it, I didn’t give up and many Liberians have been generous and supportive of my career.“I don’t have any formal training for acting. But my talent is a gift from God and I have used it to nourish myself,” he said. “Comedy has been my passion since childhood and by the middle part of 1997, I began practicing it as a drama from group to group. But it was really difficult for me to break into Lollywood,” he admitted. His first movie, “Samaguan in Love”, went viral, and since than he has had over 30 short films to his credit.According to him, his plan is to make people laugh and there is nothing that seems serious to him.He also said that making people laugh helps them to overcome their stress and worry, giving them hope for a better tomorrow.“I’m just the way you see me in movies. It’s very difficult for me to be serious as everything that is surrounding me is comedy,” he disclosedThe comedian said, “I am also involved into charity work with the John and Paul foundation, headed by our manager Dream Debo.”He said the J&P Foundation visits the homes of the less fortunate, Ebola victims, and sick patients in hospitals.However, he said his visit to these places is just to make people laugh and as well as to share much needed assorted items (rice, soap, blankets, etc), things that will be to keep their hope alive.“I don’t have much, but this is my way of giving back to the Liberian society that has made me,” he said. “I’m the kind of person that loves everybody and will strive to be submissive always.“Critics are those that made me, since they are the ones that kept motivating me to improve every single day,” he said.“Never you give up on your dream. I will forever remain grateful to Liberians for supporting my efforts.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgGuests pictured at the launch of ‘A brush with the Wild Atlantic,’ a collection of new works by artist Sharon McDaid and ‘Select,’ an exhibition of pieces from the Donegal Designer MakersTwo exceptional new art and design collections have been going down a storm in Inishowen this week, following their launch in Carndonagh’s Silver Birch Gallery.‘A brush with the Wild Atlantic,’ is a collection of new works by artist Sharon McDaid while ‘Select’ is an exhibition of various pieces from the Donegal Designer Makers who are enjoying their first-ever exhibition in Inishowen.“We had a terrific turn out at last week’s launch and I’m delighted to say that there has been an amazing response to both collections since then,” Sharon McDaid, owner of the Silver Birch Gallery said.Sharon, who is a member of the Donegal Designer Makers, explained that their collection is one of new pieces, made specifically for the exhibition. “We have an exhibition every year and members make pieces that would be totally different to what they might do normally, based on the theme of the exhibition.This year the theme was ‘Select,’ encouraging people to select to design, to choose and to make. The collection was shown first in Ardara where the Donegal Designer Makers have a base before coming here to Carndonagh.”The visit to the peninsula, says Sharon, is the first time the Donegal Designer Makers Annual Exhibition has come to Inishowen, and she says the response has been terrific.Of course last Thursday was a night of double excitement for Sharon who also launched her own new collection. “All of the paintings in ‘A brush with the Wild Atlantic Way’ are inspired by Inishowen, the first stop on the Wild Atlantic Way. Thankfully there has been a brilliant response to that too and many of the pieces were even on reserve before they went on display,” she added.Meanwhile Ursula Donnelly of Donegal Local Enterprise Office who performed the official launch of both collections, said, with the new Creative Strategy now in place in Donegal, it is an exciting time for those involved in the creative industries.“Donegal Local Enterprise Office is delighted to have worked with both Sharon individually and Donegal Designer Makers as a group and we recognise that there is great energy among the talented people already co-creating and collaborating in Donegal. Our focus at the Local Enterprise Office within the strategy is to work with the sector to develop viable and sustainable businesses and we would actively encourage anyone in the creative industries in the county to get involved with the roll out of the strategy.”The dual collections launched last week are currently on display at the Silver Birch Gallery in Carndonagh and both exhibitions will continue to run until the end of August.If you would like a copy of the Creative Strategy for Donegal you can download it here http://bit.ly/1NnCW5r or alternatively make contact with Donegal Local Enterprise Office on 0749160735.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Some relatively minor moisture moves across the state today. We still think the best action today will end up being in over the southern half of Ohio, but we won’t rule out showers up north either. Rains from I-70 southward can be from .25”-.75” with 90% coverage, while north of I-70 today we can see a few hundredths to a tenth or two. Coverage in the north can be 40-50%. Far east central parts of Ohio may push above a quarter inch, though, so we need to watch that. Everything should be winding down by midnight tonight, if not before. The map at right shows expected rains through midnight tonight. The front that brings this moisture in also brings another push down in temps via colder air-mass. There will be some frost tomorrow morning, although at this point we do not expect it to be a strong frost, but a significant part of the state may be 35 degrees or below.Tuesday starts a mostly dry stretch. Right now, we are going to stick with our thoughts that this dry period runs a good 10 days. As with last week, we are still keeping a bit of an asterisk on this late this week into the start of the weekend. Some models are bringing a chance for a bit of moisture across the state from later Friday into Saturday. We won’t rule out spotty action at this time, but it is not enough for us to talk up moisture and harvest interruptions. It is a period of time that we will watch closely through the coming few days, and if we are making changes to this dry forecast, they will come sooner rather than later.All models are in agreement on dry weather again from Sunday through next Thursday. Temperatures will remain mostly normal to a bit below.The extended 11-16 day forecast period looks drier, and we are pushing our next front back a few days. That cold front may not move over the state until closer to the 29th, but still holds potential for a quarter to half an inch of liquid precipitation.last_img read more
