Waterhouse head coach, Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey, says his team’s continued march up the table and further away from relegation trouble in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) is mainly down to the zest and determination he has instilled in the side. Waterhouse played to a 0-0 draw with Humble Lion in a bruising RSPL contest at Drewsland on Sunday, and although it was an ugly point, Bailey says this new tough character is what is aiding their climb up the table. “Playing against Humble Lion, you expect a very tactical game, (Donovan) Duckie is a very tactical coach and I think we were very disciplined tactically,” Bailey said. Physical game “But (when) Humble Lion (meets) Waterhouse you expect that (physical game), and that was what it was, a very physical game. “But that is what I believe I have brought to the team. Earlier in the season the team didn’t have that physicality, they didn’t have that aggression, that desire and that is why it (game) looks more physical, because I bring more zest, more determination, self-belief and confidence.” It was a game of few chances, with the best opportunities for both teams coming towards the end, just minutes apart. With less than ten minutes to go, Rodave Murray broke free at the top of the area, with time and space, but dragged his effort wide of the target. Then on the counter, Humble Lion’s Francois Swaby broke down the right and slipped a delightful ball across the six yard box for the onrushing Rohan Richards, who steered his effort wide, although he was under pressure. The result keeps Waterhouse in eighth on 28 points, and although a place in the top four is far-fetched, Bailey is still keeping his eye on a spot in the play-offs. “This put us on 28 (points) and we just keep on elevating, keep on moving up, and that is what is important to us, making sure at the end of the day we are in the Premier League next season. We still have hope of making to the top six, but we still have some work to do in the offensive third, and once we get the hang of that, we will be fine,” he said.

Dear Editor,Against the backdrop of the December 21, 2018, successfully debated and passed no-confidence motion in the National Assembly, agents of the fallen APNU/AFC coalition Government have adopted a desperate masquerading posture of excuses and deliberate delay.The debates further exposed the woeful Ponzi scheming on the nation by a fraudulent APNU/AFC cabal. The Government is now scampering all over in an attempt to put a spin of the constitutional directive that General and Regional Elections to elect a new Government, must be within 90 days from the date of the carried motion. This period is subject to extension if agreed upon by a majority of the National Assembly, which we know would require a miracle. It follows that after March 19, 2019, the APNU/AFC Government will be unconstitutional and illegal if there are no elections.The Government, through Basil Williams, initially advanced the frivolous delaying tactics to effect the mandatory resignation of the Cabinet, in defiance to the simplest constitutional directive. The abuse of the judicial system to effect the delay is characteristic. Others like Khemraj Ramjattan and Moses Nagamootoo from the cabal’s camp now advance their own gully positions, as they U-turn on the statements they made during the debate of the Motion.Here comes the PNC/R GECOM Commissioner Vincent Alexander, who has added to the dubious furrow, by trying to be convincing about the need for House-to-House registrations. His duplicitous approach cannot mask the real intent of delaying the elections to a significant period beyond the constitutional 90 days’ deadline. It is clear that the shallow and futile arguments have one clear objective of extending the time of this illegal APNU/AFC Government.Partial representations and obvious silence on known relevant House-to-House matters characterise the twisted connotations of Vincent Alexander. It obfuscates all credence in the statements he advances, in an effort to kerfuffle citizens and other stakeholders. The public should recognise that Alexander often publicly spews his contaminating postulations when his political party can materially benefit. It seems not to matter that it comes as an injustice to a majority of citizens. For purpose of clarity, therefore, consideration must be given as follows:Key Legislation which provides authority and the mechanisms for House-to-House activities in lieu of maintaining an acceptable List of Registrants include The National Registration Act, Chapter 19:08, The National Registration (Residents) Regulations and Amendments, Chapter 19:08 and the Elections Law Amendment Act No 2 of 2001. These legislations inform the embodiment of the GECOM Training Manual for election staff and for the Continuous Registration process since the Laws came into existence.In relation to House-to-House Registration, Section 6 (4) (a) of the National Registration Act, Chapter 19:08 states:“The Commissioner may establish an office situated at such place in any district, and at which there shall be received the applications for registrations of persons who are at the qualifying date resident therein or in such part thereof, as he may specify by notice published in the Gazette and, subject to anything to the contrary provided by the regulations, no divisional registrar is required to visit houses in any district or part thereof (as the case may be) in relation to which an office is so established.”Additionally, Section 6 (a) states that “the Elections Commission shall use the Official List of Electors from the 2001 General and Regional Elections as the base to commence continuing registration. Provided that at any stage the Commission may undertake such verification as necessary by a means to be determined by the Commission.”It is widely known that GECOM, over the years, had set a sufficient number of such registration Offices around the country. More importantly, they conducted nine rounds of continuous registration since 2015 using the foregoing legal basis. This was in an effort to update and cleanse the List of voters (Register of Registrants), in the lead-up to the two local Government Elections. The real impetus towards the activation of a continuous registration process, however, was driven following 2008 by the PNC/R and AFC parties, in advancing a mechanism they felt would achieve positive results in the event of snap elections based on the majority in the National Assembly.While in principle there may have been a 7-year Commission policy of updating the List through House-to-House visits, the Parties in Government rejected it when the time came around. They contended at the time that the continuous registration process was a legally approved option, which the Commission can use to update the List where appropriate.Sincerely,Neil Kumar
Reports reaching the Daily Observer say that the Pentagon, Headquarters of United States Defense establishment, is investigating Liberia’s Defense Minister Brownie Samukai over the recent shooting in West Point, Monrovia, of unarmed civilians by the US-trained Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).US-trained AFL soldiers, while performing her first public engagement since its restructuring had an altercation with defenseless civilians on August 20, 2014, killing one and wounding two others. According to sources close to the Defense Ministry, Washington is extremely angry about the “unfortunate” situation in Liberia, and called for an immediate probe.The US is outraged over the shooting because the world’s only real superpower feels that training and procuring of weaponry for the Liberian army was provided by the US people and government, our sources said.“For about a week now, Minister Samukai had been facing questioning relating to the shooting. He has been answering questions ranging from why such excessive force was used in dislodging the crowd, who gave the order to shoot, why did Samukai give conflicting accounts about the incident from the onset, why was the army deployed in a civilian matter and why the Township was quarantined in the first place.“He has been facing US investigators about the incident for few days now and is expected back in the country on or after Monday September 8, 2014. Washington is highly disappointed in the army because the army was trained by the US and weapons used in the standoff were provided to Liberia by Washington from the West African state of Senegal.Assistant Defense Minister for Public Affairs David Dahn declined to comment on issues raised when our reporter placed a call to him yesterday afternoon.“I have no knowledge on when the Minister left Liberia and I don’t know the intent of his trip. You can come to my office tomorrow and I will give you the information, but I don’t know now,” Dahn declared.When contacted for in further inquiry, the Information Assistant in the Public Affairs Section of the US Embassy near Monrovia, Robert P. Clarke, Jr., declined to comment.“The Embassy is closed right now and you can’t get anybody to speak to your concerns. Everybody is off office and no official will take calls on that issue, if even I give you numbers,” Clarke asserted.The Chairman on the House Committee on Defense and Intelligence, George S. Mulbah, said his Committee is not aware of the information.“But,” he added, “Liberia is a sovereign state and our army will be investigated by ourselves,” ignoring Washington’s overwhelming support to the army over the years.“Armies around the world, including the US, are not perfect and when things happen the government concerned takes up the issues. US soldiers that committed crimes in Iraq were prosecuted in the US and not in any other country,” Representative Mulbah pointed out.The Bong County lawmaker condemned the shooting, adding; “My Committee has communicated with Defense Ministry authorities, calling for a conference as part of the House’s own way of investigating the standoff.”He noted that the army would investigate and prosecute those liable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).The West Point incident is the army’s first interaction with the public amidst the drawdown process of the United Nations Mission in Liberia, UNMIL.Before this situation, some AFL soldiers have had personal outbursts with the citizens leading to serious commotion.In 2012, AFL officer Mccquinson Emmanuel stabbed Perry Togba, a motorcyclist, for demanding a balance LD$10 transport fare after the cyclist had dropped him and his fiancée.That situation led Gbarnga City, Bong County to experience a very “chaotic scene on Wednesday, December 12, 2012, when officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and some “pen-pen” riders( motorcyclists) clashed.

COURTS: He agreed to repay homeowners but left the L.A. area before a scheduled court date. By Denise Nix STAFF WRITER Norman Baker’s disappearance after he was convicted of swindling homeowners out of nearly $100,000 in insurance premiums proved costly Wednesday when a judge sentenced him to three years in state prison. Baker, who has paid back half of what he stole, was expected to return the rest of the money and receive probation. But Torrance Superior Court Judge Eric Taylor sided with Deputy District Attorney Paul Guthrie, who said Baker was not trustworthy and his victims wanted him behind bars. “If there was ever a worse candidate for probation, I don’t know who it is,” Guthrie said. Baker and his attorney, Deputy Public Defender Pamela Villanueva, argued that Baker just wanted to repay his victims – and wouldn’t be able to from prison. Baker said he went to Georgia to find work so he could pay them back. His plan was thwarted, however, when California Department of Insurance investigators found him and arrested him. “It upset me very much that this happened,” said Baker, a father of four daughters, including a 10-year-old who has a medical condition that causes seizures and comalike states. “I had the opportunity in Atlanta to make money,” said Baker, who blamed the subprime mortgage market for his failure to earn the remainder of the money he owed. Baker, 52, pleaded no contest in November to one count of grand theft and agreed to pay $95,038.65 he stole from homeowners while posing as a licensed public adjuster. Baker convinced nine homeowners around the Los Angeles area, including Inglewood, Commerce and Watts, that he would help them recover claims for rain damage. He obtained several insurance settlement checks, and instructed the homeowners to endorse the checks so he could use the funds for repairs to their properties. He never arranged for the repairs and took the money. When he made his plea, he agreed to repay the money in two lump sums. He made the first payment in January, but when he was to appear in court June 7 to pay the rest and be sentenced, he didn’t show up. The judge issued a warrant for his arrest, and Baker was captured in Lawrenceville, Ga. He was returned to California on Aug. 10. Because he failed to appear, Baker was held on 14 charges that were still pending. Normally, in plea agreements, outstanding counts are dismissed at sentencing. So when the judge said he was not going to let those charges drop, Baker agreed to accept an additional year in prison and gave up six months’ credit he received in jail, which can be applied toward a prison sentence. firstname.lastname@example.orgWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jurgen Klopp 1 Jurgen Klopp has returned to work with Liverpool less than 48 hours after having his appendix removed.The German was absent from Anfield for Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland as he was undergoing surgery at Aintree Hospital after becoming ill.But the 48-year-old was back to work at home the following day, reviewing the weekend’s game, and decided he wanted to be involved in Monday’s preparations for the FA Cup fourth-round replay against West Ham at the club’s Melwood training ground.“I feel good and I am back in the race,” said Klopp.“I figured if I feel bad I should stay at home, but I feel good.“If I am not fit then I cannot help here and I would be at home. Everything is okay and we don’t have to talk about this any more.“I am very thankful for our doc (club medic Andy Massey) because he said we should go to hospital – I was not too sure – and the surgeon was great, a season ticket-holder who told me we both didn’t want to see the game, I had the best nurses and everything was okay.“I watched the (Sunderland) game yesterday. I spoke to all my coaches and what I heard before (he saw it) was what I saw afterwards.“It was not necessary to give the points away but that is not something we can change. It makes no difference if you are in a deep sleep or on the bench – you can’t change it any more.“There were a lot of positive things and if you pick out the last 10 minutes it was a really good game; how you should play and we should have scored a few more goals.“How we conceded the goals was not too good, how it is always, but it is not the only information I need to understand what our situation is at this moment.“It is over and in this moment it is easier for me to say we have to carry on.”Klopp will be on the touchline for the trip to Upton Park, although he accepts he will not be his usual highly-animated self in the technical area.“I think I am experienced to know that for me it is not a normal coaching game so I won’t be jumping about,” he said.“I can’t win the game with my emotions outside, I know this, so I can handle it no worries.“I have a few holes in my body so hopefully the water will stay in!”

“We needed to have more information with the (Ralph M.) Brown Act,” said Gonzales, who served from February to July. “You’re a volunteer, and then to get sued to pay money out of your pocket is kind of crazy, especially when you don’t know what’s involved.” The plaintiffs included Johnson, Cangiano, Harnett and current council member Richard Dyer. “The intent was to have the Town Council be open to the community by allowing videotaping and posting of the minutes,” Cangiano said. “The Town Council was not forthcoming with that, and there seemed no clear path to resolving that.” Judge Dzintra Janavs ruled in July that the Town Council must abide by the Brown Act, despite claims of exemption because it was only an advisory panel without legislative powers. The lawsuit cost council members a total of $14,000 to settle, and led to the resignations. “Do I think that the Brown Act in any way damaged the Town Council? I do not,” said Cangiano, who is allied with Johnson in the election. “I believe the Brown Act is something the Town Council can live with.” Gonzales said he is now seeking a fresh start with the council. “It was an issue of figuring out what’s the best thing to do,” he said. “If I was a quitter, I wouldn’t be running again.” Cangiano, after two consecutive losses, said she’s willing to give it one more shot. “I’m running one last time because I feel it’s important to give a balance to the Town Council,” she said. “I feel Mary and I provide balance. Otherwise, the whole council will be made up for a special interest.” Cangiano believes the council should focus on issues other than the air park; the expansion plans are under review by the county Department of Regional Planning. “I feel that it’s resolved,” she said. “The (county) Board of Supervisors took over the issue. It’s not our issue anymore.” She said development and water supply remain important issues in the community and require attention. Gonzales said he is running to help preserve Agua Dulce’s rural quality. “It’s a great community and we want to keep it the way it is as (much as) possible,” he said. “You can’t keep growth from happening – we just want to control growth. “The bottom line is keeping it rural and comfortable, neighbors getting along with neighbors, trying to keep the trails open.” Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Issues such as water rights and mining have over the years confronted this unincorporated community of just 3,000 residents nestled in the canyons between the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys. Of these, the proposed expansion of the Agua Dulce Air Park, a small rural airstrip, remains the most divisive. Green is president of the Concerned Citizens of Agua Dulce, an anti-airport expansion group. Longtime resident Spry has been active in Town Council business. MacAdam is co-owner of Agua Dulce Vineyards. Johnson works for the county Parks and Recreation Department, and formerly was manager at the airport. Cangiano ran for the Town Council in November 2004 and in August. Gonzales served on the panel from February to July 2005 before resigning with three others. The exodus forced a special election in August to re-establish a quorum. Council members said they felt persecuted by a group that had sued the panel in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging violation of the state’s open meetings law. AGUA DULCE – Six residents are running for four seats on the Agua Dulce Town Council, an advisory panel that has been a public stage for residents sparring over local issues – including a small airport looking to expand. Incumbent Mary Johnson and candidates Lorene Cangiano, Ze Gonzales, Patrick Green, Don MacAdam and Peg Spry are on Tuesday’s ballot. Each seeks one of four spots on the policy panel that advises 5th District county Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich on local issues. Johnson, who was elected just two months ago in a special election, is running to retain her seat for a full two-year term. Also open are seats being vacated by Andy Fried, Diane Terito and Eric Harnett; Harnett was elected in August. “I’ve done two terms, and I think that at this point, it’s time for other people to learn how to deal with these issues, to start participating in the process,” said Fried, currently the council’s president, who is retiring after a four-year stint.
