The County Agriculture Coordinator (CAC) of Grand Bassa County, Joyce Kolvah, has disclosed that most subsistence farmers in her county have become vulnerable to climate change.She made the disclosure in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer newspaper recently in Buchanan City.According to Madam Kolvah, climate change is a serious problem leaving farmers vulnerable in Grand Bassa County.“Climate change is a serious problem for farmers in Grand Bassa County. Even this January, the county is still experiencing constant rainfall causing flooding in the fields of vegetable farmers. Our rice farmers, who are in the uplands cannot burn their farms.She said that most farmers are still accustomed to the traditional upland farming methods in her county, making it difficult for them to succeed in agriculture.She disclosed that last year she noticed almost 36 farmers could not burn their farms to start the process of growing fresh crops.“This year it is raining more often, which could make the lives of farmers very difficult. They may not be able to succeed in farming to feed their families,” she reiterated.She said because of the effects of climate change, she is encouraging farmers in the county to prioritize lowland farming.However, Madam Kolvah stated that farmers are yet to grasp the concept of moving to the swamp for crop production.“Our farmers are so use to the uplands that they are not willing to move to the lowlands. We are asking them to compare the yield of their production from the lowland to that of the upland in the hoped they can learn a lesson.She said if the issue of climate change in the county is not fully addressed food production would remain scarce.Madam Kolvah also explained to the Daily Observer that she established a demonstration site at the county’s office to train farmers.The country specific report released on climate change in April, 2013, by the United States Forest Service (USFS) states that the major challenge in addressing climate change is how to improve the conditions of rural subsistence farmers whose livelihood squarely depend on agriculture.It furthers that the opportunity for Liberian farmers to rebuild their lives after the protractive civil crisis is to become resilient in the face of climate change.Lofa, Bong, Bomi, Cape Mount and other counties were named in the report as places where farmers are vulnerable to the effects of climate change.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
…‘questionable incidents’ unearthed during inquiryChairman of the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into City Hall’s mismanagement, Justice Cecil Kennard, while presenting recommendations at the handing over of the report into the Inquiry made a recommendation for the Burrowes report to be implemented.According to Kennard, “Burrowes had carried out an investigation into the working of the City Council…that should be implemented”.The Chairman mentioned that the implementation of those recommendations could improve the work being done by the Council.Back in 2009, former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Guyana Office for Investment (GO-Invest), Keith Burrowes had carried out an extensive inquiry into the state of affairs at City Hall.This led to former presidential advisor, Ramon Gaskin’s appointment in May of 2012 to verify if the recommendations from the report were implemented. Upon investigating, it was found that none of these recommendations were applied to the operations of the local organ body.“He (Burrowes) did the inquiry for the City Council in 2009 and in 2012, he hired me to go and inquire if they had implemented any of his recommendations. I got the opportunity to go there… The recommendations of Burrowes were notCity Hall CoI Chairman, Justice Cecil Kennardimplemented,” testified Gaskin during the CoI.While that report was submitted the following June, the economist said he delved into other matters of the Council where astonishing financial procedures and other questionable incidents were unearthed. From those signals, he is of the belief that the Town Council has adequate revenues to sustain operations but it is being hindered by mishandling of funds.Being tasked to provide him with a list of outstanding revenues and taxes, staffers provided documents which indicated that over $12 billion were owed from businesses and taxpayers.One of Burrowes’ recommendations was for the establishment of an Internal Audit Department which never materialised. In the City Treasury Department, Gaskin is certain that a majority of the persons are not trained in accountancy.He pointed out that in the year 2000, the Auditor General at that time had stated that they hadn’t conducted any financial assessment of the Council in 10 years. Following up in 2016, an announcement was made that no audits were orchestrated in 12 years. “The whole accountancy and books and ledger were wrong…”For many years, financial analysts have been calling for a report on the spending of City Hall.In fact, Leader of the Opposition Bharrat Jagdeo has highlighted the need for yearly audited statements.The former Head of State at one of his weekly press conferences said with the addition of its new voices at City Hall, the Party will be employing measures to ensure that the Georgetown City Council is fully accountable to its constituents.“First of all, accountability in the City Council, we want audited statements every single year; we want every civil work be tendered using the National Procurement Act because you have seen that they have not had audited statements for the last three years [but] they have given out hundreds of millions in contracts without any form of tendering to friends and family. We want to correct that,” Jagdeo told the press.The CoI commenced on September 22, 2018, and had 15 sittings during which 50 persons testified.
20 7. Goodison Park (Everton) – Yes, we know it’s showing its age badly in many ways, and Everton FC would love to have a new stadium, but cherish Goodison while it’s still around. Built in 1892 when the Toffees left their old home ground (Anfield), Goodison was developed by the most influential architect in British football stadium history, Archibald Leitch. Situated a stone’s throw from row-upon-row of terraced housing, Goodison is symbolic of the place football has held in the working class communities of England. As the connection between the ordinary fan and the mega money involved in the Premier League gets more and more detached, Goodison stands as a reminder that football is the people’s game, not a corporate play thing. It’s even got a church wedged into one corner of the ground. It’s old, out-of-date, out of fashion, but it’s dripping with the kind of character and feeling completely lacking in most new stadiums. 20 1. Old Trafford (Manchester United) – By far the biggest stadium in the Premier League, with a capacity of 75,635, Old Trafford is the only English club ground capable of being spoken of in the same breath of the world’s biggest, most iconic football venues. It is up there with the Camp Nou, the Bernabeu and the San Siro. United’s home since 1910, it carries the history of Billy Meredith, the Busby Babes, the Class of 92, Ronaldo, Cantona, Charlton, Robson… the list goes on and on. That is why it is the Theatre of Dreams, the very best of old and new. The number one stadium in the Premier League. 3. White Hart Lane (Tottenham Hotspur) – Tucked away and surrounded by housing estates and the High Road in N17, it’s not the easiest stadium to travel to but it’s a gem which the Premier League is, sadly, soon to lose. Fans are up close and personal with the players, situated mere feet from the touchline – which helps create an impressive atmosphere when the home fans find their voice. The Jumbotrons allow fans a glimpse of goals just moments after they go in. It’s an excellent mix of old and new, having opened way back in 1899 and been modernised in the Premier League era, and makes it in at No.4 on our list. At one time capable of holding over 70,000, it’s capacity in recent times it has been let down by dropping to just 36,000, and for that reason Spurs are on the move, next door. 20 11. Emirates (Arsenal) – A real opinion divider. Arsenal’s 10-year-old stadium was the first large, modern arena built by one of the traditional giants of English football, with its 60,000 capacity comparing more than favourably with Highbury’s 38,000 seats (in a ground that once held over 70,000 when standing was allowed). Despite its modern limitations, Highbury was an incredible home for Arsenal, steeped in history, dripping grandeur and representing so much that was great about the club. Now they play in a stadium named after a middle-eastern airline. Arsenal have tried to inject some instant history into the Emirates, with nods to the club’s history, but you can’t create tradition with a few design touches. The fans are also further away from the action than at Highbury, and every side of the ground is awash with corporate seats – dubbed the ‘prawn circle’. 20 17. Stamford Bridge (Chelsea) – Plastic flags. 5. King Power Stadium (Leicester City) – Leicester’s stadium is so high for one reason: the fans. According to our Matchday Live presenter, Adrian Durham, who travels the country attending Premier League games, “Even during the run of poor results the fans were loud, supportive and energised. It’s been a golden year for Leicester fans and the KP has been rocking.” 16. St Mary’s (Southampton) – Modern, but totally boring to look at. 12. Selhurst Park (Crystal Palace) – Let’s be honest, Selhurst Park is a pretty awful ground, not least the old Arthur Waite stand. The Whitehorse Lane stand is dominated by executive boxes, like a rubbish version of the old Clock End at Highbury. And it’s poorly served by public transport. So why isn’t it lower in our ranking? The Holmesdale Road end and the fans in it that have given Selhurst one of the best atmosphere’s in the country. 20 14. Liberty Stadium (Swansea City) – Swansea moved to the Liberty Stadium from the Vetch Field in 2005 and they havent looked back. Its drawback is the modest 20,972 capacity, but it’s got a good atmosphere. Shame it’s shared with a rugby team, which isn’t ideal, pitch-wise. 20 20 6. Etihad Stadium (Manchester City) – Another of the new breed, the Etihad Stadium – formerly/formally known as the City of Manchester Stadium – is an example for West Ham’s new Olympic Stadium of how to convert an athletics arena into a football ground. Built originally for the 2002 Commonwealth Games, it was remodelled, completely removing the athletics track, to make a grand new home for City. It went from holding 41,000 for the Games, to 48,000 for football, and has since increased to 55,000, with plans to expand to 61,000. The only problem is that, despite City’s oil wealth-fuelled recent success, and the club’s historic core support, the club has yet to generate enough appeal to pack out the Etihad week in, week out. And like Arsenal, having a stadium named after a middle eastern airline isn’t as evocative as, say, Maine Road. 20 20 4. Bet365 Stadium (Stoke City) – Better known as the Britannia, Stoke have led the way in imbuing a sense of tradition in a stadium that is less than 20 years old. ‘A cold wet night’ at this stadium is synonymous with the atmosphere associated with what is now called the Bet365 Stadium. The name change is a bit cumbersome, and with manager Mark Hughes steadily changing the image of an away day at the Potters, this stadium’s reputation could yet undergo a makeover, although the home support will have something to say about that. Plus, we like the fact that it’s not a boringly uniform design, with the South and East Stands separated from the L-shaped adjoined Boothen End and West Stand. 20 10. The Hawthorns (West Bromwich Albion) – West Brom’s home since 1900, the Hawthorns is one of the great names in English football ground history. Over the years it has been updated, leaving a compact, atmospheric all-seater stadium that we see today. talkSPORT presenter Adrian Durham has praised the ground’s atmosphere, saying: “When the Baggies are boinging, The Hawthorns is jumping. They don’t always fire it up to the max, but when they do you can hear the noise over the traffic on the nearby M5.” 20 20 9. Turf Moor (Burnley) – Incredibly, ground was first broken at Turf Moor in 1833, when a cricket facility was constructed on the site for Burnley Cricket Club. The first football match took place there in 1883, and it’s witnessed Burnley title wins in 1921 and 1960. These days, Turf Moor holds just over 21,000, which is pretty small… until you consider the population of Burnley as a town is estimated in the region of 80,000. This is a ground with real charm. 20 20 20 13. Vicarage Road (Watford) – Home to the Hornets since 1922, it’s been modernised in recent years but retains the traditional feel of an English football ground – four separate stands. 20 15. KC Stadium (Hull City) – Another modern stadium that holds around 25,000, with little memorable features otherwise. If only we could forget Phil Brown singing there in 2009. The Premier League is the most exciting football competition in the world and, as such, deserves to be played in fantastic stadiums.But what makes a great football ground?It’s a contentious issue, but we’ve got our own ideas and so have ranked each Premier League club stadium, from worst to first.We took into account the capacity, facilities, location, history, design and atmosphere, to come up with our top 20.Disagree with our verdict? Comment below! 2. Anfield (Liverpool) – There are few more famous stadiums in world football than Anfield. It boasts an incredible history (yes, Liverpool fans love their history) and probably the most iconic end stand in the game. The seated Kop replaced the legendary terrace in 1994, but the Reds were canny enough to keep it a single-tier stand, retaining its identity. Liverpool looked at moving to a completely new stadium, with Anfield in need of modernising, but opted to stay at the place they have called home since 1892. The result of this decision is the hulking new Main Stand, which has taken capacity to 55,000 and represents a leap forward for a club accused of dwelling too much on the past. As for the ‘famous atmosphere’, on the right occasion, against the right opposition, Anfield really is a noisy venue. But it is also fair to say it can be embarrassingly quiet – a problem that afflicts all of the most popular Premier League clubs. 20. Olympic Stadium (West Ham United) – We’ve got to put West Ham’s new stadium in last place, on account of the trouble they’ve had since moving. Fears over the distance fans will be from the pitch, the atmosphere compared to the old Upton Park ground and how it will affect West Ham’s identity have yet to be allayed. On the flip side, it is brand new, holds around 20,000 more fans than the Boleyn Ground and is in a much better location. One person at talkSPORT Towers described the Olympic Stadium as a ‘soulless bowl of doom’, but then he is a Tottenham fan and probably a bit biased. 18. Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough) – When it opened in 1995, the Riverside Stadium was at the vanguard of Premier League stadiums, but it’s spawned a generation of bland, identikit, out of town arenas. And it is, as one online review explains, “surrounded by a building site and an industrial sludge river”. 20 8. Stadium of Light (Sunderland) – It was always going to be tough to replace Roker Park, but the Black Cats do have a pretty decent home. Opened in 1997, it’s current capacity is 49,000, while there is planning to extend it further. In 2007 it was named the Football League’s Best Away Ground while not many other stadiums can boast hosting concerts by One Direction, Beyonce, Take That, Oasis, Coldplay and Rihanna. Now you know where Big Sam learnt his dance moves! They just need to smarten up those sun-bleached seats, which look a bit shoddy. 20 20 19. Dean Court (Bournemouth) – With a capacity just under 12,000, Dean Court is the smallest ground in the top flight. There are thousands of high school stadiums in the USA that comfortably hold more than Bournemouth’s ground. Based on this tiny capacity alone, it’s right down our list. 20

A FORMER Donegal County Council official has launched a legal bid aimed at having a Government report clearing the council of any wrongdoing in planning matters overturned.The High Court action has been taken by consultant planner Gerard Convie in relation to a number of complaints he made between 2007 and 2009 about allegedly irregular planning decisions made by the council.Mr Convie made the submissions arising out of his concerns about planning procedures in Donegal County Council, whom he had previously worked for, and the manner that certain individuals were receiving preferential consideration arising out their relationship with council officials. He claims his submissions were dismissed last June when the Department of the Environment said in a report it had found no evidence of corruption or abuse of public office by planning officials in several local authorities including Donegal County Council. That review was commenced in 2010 by the then FF/Green administration.However Mr Convie, of Lower Main St, Letterkenny, claims his detailed complaints “were not investigated at all” and that the conclusions contained in the report were based entirely on submissions made by Donegal County Council.On Friday Conleth Bradley SC for Mr Convie told Mr Justice Barry White his client’s complaints were dismissed by the minister without being given “any appropriate consideration”.Counsel said the minister had made several fundamental errors in respect of Mr Convie’s submissions, including the findings that Mr Convie had not produced evidence of irregularities, that the submissions were lacking in detail and that Mr Convie was not a reliable witness.Counsel added the minister also took into account irrelevant considerations when considering the motivations Mr Convie had for making his submissions, and was concerned about the impact on his professional reputation.The court heard that prior to resigning from the council, Mr Convie had brought legal proceedings challenging a decision to dismiss him from his post.Mr Convie is seeking orders from the court quashing the finding of June 12 that there was no prima facie evidence of any malfeasance of his complaints. He is also seeking declarations including that having made a detailed submission about planning irregularities he had a legitimate expectation that his complaints would be investigated in an thorough and impartial manner.He is further seeking declarations that the inquiry failed to comply with natural and constitutional justice and that fair procedures were not followed. Donegal County Council is a notice party to the proceedings.Permission to bring the challenge was granted yesterday by Mr Justice White. The application was granted ex parte, where one side only was represented in court. The matter was made returnable before the court next month.COMMENTS ARE CLOSED ON ONGOING COURT CASESEX-COUNCIL OFFICIAL IN LEGAL BATTLE OVER PLANNING ‘IRREGULARITIES’ CLAIMS was last modified: September 10th, 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:EX-COUNCIL OFFICIAL IN LEGAL BATTLE OVER PLANNING ‘IRREGULARITIES’ CLAIMS

After being tied 3-3 through the first six matches, Keppel (5-4, 3-0) built a 7-5 lead before pulling away from Alhambra (8-4, 2-1). “You never know with this league,” Grbac said. “Alhambra, San Gabriel, Schurr, Montebello –they all have the ability to jump up and knock each other off. It just happens that we’re on top and everyone is trying to knock us off.” Alhambra received strong performances from their top singles player, freshman Tiffany Thong and the No. 2 doubles team of Le Lo and Raina Cheung. Both took two of three sets from their competitors. However, Alhambra’s other two singles and doubles combinations were only be able to muster three additional wins. “I told my team that tight matches usually come down to doubles play,” Alhambra head coach John Sepulveda said. “We just didn’t get the strong performances that we needed to pull off this win.” The Aztecs won six of nine doubles matches, including four of the last five. “It looks like we just weren’t mentally ready for this,” Sepulveda said. “We’ll just have to rebound and get back out there. We know we’ll face Keppel once again and we’ll see how that goes.” While tight matches and games were to be expected in this anticipated matchup of city rivals, a surprise to many of the fans was the off-court tension. Sepulveda and Grbac engaged in a couple of shouting matches, including one over a dispute in points, which also involved two girls from each school. “We just both handled the problem differently,” Sepulveda said. “These are tight games and sometimes the coaches can go a little overboard. All that matters is that the game was settled on the court.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

The doubles team of seniors Jennie Chung and Yvonne Ngo were not seriously challenged either, winning their matches 6-4, 6-2, 6-0. “I think we expected to come out and do well; we were pumped up,” Chung said. “Some of the matches were close but we had confidence we’d win. We kept our heads up.” The Keppel doubles team of junior Jamie Hayashibara and senior Chris Wu also contributed to the Aztecs’ win by taking two of three sets. Half of the Aztecs’ points came from their top singles and doubles teams. Junior Karina Hermawan swept her singles matches handily, 6-3, 6-1, 6-1. ALHAMBRA — The fierce rivalry that is Alhambra vs. Keppel seems to know no boundaries, even in girls tennis. In a hotly contested match indicative of the schools’ competitive spirits, Keppel’s Aztecs retained the top spot in the Almont League by defeating the Moors 11-7 at Alhambra on Tuesday.

Mr Bernard Houston and his family at the scene where the grenade was found. Pic by Brian McDaid.The Letterkenny man who found a live grenade is his garden has revealed how his wife told him to go back out and finish doing the gardening!Bernard Huston was busy digging up an old hedge in his garden at Glencar Park yesterday.But just after 10am he thought he had unearthed a large lump of metal but soon discovered it was something a lot more dangerous. Gardai seal off the Glencar housing state in Letterkenny this morning. Pic by Donegal Daily.What he first thought was a large stone turned out to be a large and very live hand grenade.Bernard, who was digging the garden with stepson Kevin (9) said “I wasn’t sure what it was but when I tossed it with the spade I one straight away it was a hand grenade. The pin was still in the top of it.”He rushed inside to tell wife Aoife but her reactions were equally as explosive.“She told me to stop coming up with stupid excuses and not to be so lazy and finish the garden. “I had to bring her out and show her and she soon believed me then,” laughed Celtic-supporter Bernard.Bernard contacted Gardai who told the family to get out of the house at Glencar Park immediately.Detectives soon arrived on the scene and cordoned off the entire estate.Members of the Explosives Ordnance Disposal Team arrived on Saturday evening and took the live grenade away in specially constructed explosive-proof chest.Local Garda Inspector Goretti Sheridan thanked local residents for their cop-operation during the evacuation. Meanwhile Kevin was back in his garden yesterday morning finishing the job which had been interrupted the previous day.He said he was just delighted to be back in his house and to be in a position to finish his garden.“I have sunburn from standing around all day on Saturday waiting to get back into my house.“I’m just delighted to get back and to be able to finish the garden off in this lovely weather. “Sure what’s the chance of finding a another live hand grenade in your garden?” he laughed.Gardai say they do not know how the grenade ended up being buried in Mr Houston’s garden.One theory is that it may have been contained in topsoil used in the gardens of the homes which are built in the 1980s.MAN WAS TOLD TO FINISH THE GARDENING BY DISBELIEVING WIFE AFTER HE FOUND GRENADE! was last modified: April 20th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:donegalGardaiGLENCAR PARKgrenadeletterkenny
