  • Dr. Korto Releases Platform for Nimba Senatorial Bid

    first_imgFormer Education Minister, Dr. Joseph Korto, who unsuccessfully contested the 2005 general and presidential elections, on the ticket of the Liberian Equal Rights Party, has released the platform for his senatorial run in Nimba County.Dr. Joseph D.Z. Korto made the statement on Thursday when he walked into the Benson/McDonald streets office of the Daily Observer newspaper in Monrovia.He is this time around   contesting the Senate seat on the ticket of the National Democratic Coalition, whose motto is, “Let Us Build Our Nation.”According to him, the core of his campaign message surrounds the development,  unity and above all, the educational advancement of the county, where the various institutions of learning will produce the needed caliber of scholars, who upon graduation, will become viable on the job market.“I hold as a vision, with true commitment, to bring leadership that will enhance ethnic, social and political unity, among other things for the good of the people of Nimba.”Based on his life-time philosophy, which he described as radicalism, Dr. Korto stated that he sees himself as “radical in that I desire development and unity as exemplified by my past activities in the county.  I am overly confident that I will emerge victorious come December 16, 2004.”“I will equally ensure execution of the  needed development and human service programs, and promote good local governance, he asserted with a broad smile.His idea is to make Nimba County a place where Nimbaians from all walks of life will be proud to call a home.It was during Dr. Korto’s regime as District Education Officer in the 1980s that the present offices of the county’s education system in Sanniquellie were constructed.Prior to being relieved of his post as Minister of Education, R.L. in 2008, Dr. Korto introduced education decentralization, which led to   the emergence of community colleges in five of the 15 counties.“We need to address the progress in the county on a collective level, but with a responsible leadership, which should emphasize the development of the road network, revamping the healthcare delivery system and quality education.”According to him, unless our lawmakers, one of whom I am poised to become, come December 16, should provide collective leadership with extreme sincerity, the county will go nowhere.The Nimba County senatorial seat is also being contested by the incumbent, Prince Yealue Johnson (PYJ), whose name  remains a household word in the county.Apart from Dr. Korto, Senator Johnson is being challenged by a well-versed lawyer, Cllr. Yarmie Quiqui-Gbeisay, Sr., the managing partner of the Monrovia-based TIALA Law and Associates. Others are the ‘very vocal’ former Superintendent of the county, Edith Leanue Gongloe-Weh, Mr. Peter Weato, who manages the privately-owned Zoe-Geh Medical Center, and the erstwhile Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) Chief of Staff (COS), Lt/Gen. John L. Teah.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Migliore won’t back down

    first_img“I’m not going to mention any names, because this one (trainer) probably will be eventually embarrassed,” Migliore began the story. “I went into his barn, and I said, `Hey, I’ve ridden so many winners for you over the years, and I haven’t been riding for you, and I feel like getting started again.’ The guy’s got like 40 horses in the barn. I said, `Give me one we can get started with.’ “He said, `Nah, it’s not going to happen.’ I said, `Why? Did I do something so wrong?’ He said, `You want me to be honest?’ I said, `Yeah.’ He said, `Why should I ride you at 41 years old with all the injuries you’ve had, when I could ride 25-year-olds who’ve never had the battle scars you have?’ “The competitive part of me wanted to tell him off,” Migliore said. “But there was really nothing left to say, because that’s how a lot of people were looking at me. I walked out of the barn, and my eyes filled up with tears. I thought, `I’m 41 years old and I’m reduced to this?”‘ Migliore is one of those people who believe everything happens for a reason. “I went driving over to the main track, and the first person I ran into was Ron Anderson,” he said. “We’d already had these conversations. And that’s when it clicked. This was the way I was supposed to go. I went home and talked with my family and said if I stay (in New York), I’m looking at the end of my career. I wasn’t ready to not ride, and I knew I had a lot more to offer. I knew I needed to take this chance.” So Migliore did start over, but in a way that startled many fans of the Babylon, N.Y., product who’d been a New York racing fixture for a quarter-century. In November, the father of four moved to Southern California. After a get-acquainted season at Hollywood Park, Migliore has made himself at home at Santa Anita. As the 85-day season hits its midpoint this afternoon, he’s tied with Corey Nakatani for fourth in the standings with 21 wins (13 percent). ARCADIA – Go west, old man. Richard Migliore got that message in October at Belmont Park, though not in so few words. Slow to resume winning after a broken leg – from his third serious fall in three years – Migliore had talked idly with the leading agent Ron Anderson about leaving New York for the California racetracks. Determined not to quit his native circuit without a final push, Migliore resolved one morning to hit the stables and hustle business from ex-clients. First you should know The Mig is a nice man, and, by his own description, a sensitive man. center_img Since winning the Sir Beaufort Stakes with Kip Deville ($16.20) on opening day, Migliore hasn’t won a stakes-level race. But he has earned a long-shot chance on Richard Mandella-trained ElRoblar in the March 3 Santa Anita Handicap. That skeptical New York trainer? “I’ve already proven him wrong, no matter what,” Migliore said Thursday morning at Clockers’ Corner. “He was telling me I was done. I knew I wasn’t done by a long shot.” Migliore, whose 4,200-plus victories with horses as illustrious as Funny Cide and Artie Schiller make him one of the most accomplished jockeys without a Triple Crown or Breeders’ Cup win, has shown up tougher naysayers than this. After breaking his neck in a 1988 accident at Belmont, the 5-foot-4, 112-pounder was told by doctors he’d never walk again. An operation to fuse three vertebra, implant bone grafts and put a post and wires in his neck got him back to competition in six months. Numbness in the fingers and soles lingers. Migliore, fascinated by California racing since a grandfather gave him a Bill Shoemaker book when he was 11, said he has enjoyed exploring Santa Anita. Still living in an extended- stay hotel in Arcadia, he plans to decide in April whether to make the move permanent by bringing his wife Carmela and their children – ages 5 to 16 – to L.A. The first move was to start winning races again. Migliore has accomplished that. “I couldn’t have expected to be fourth (in the standings) at this juncture of the meeting, and seeing momentum building,” he said. “I’m thrilled.” This weekend: Trainer Noble Threewitt, who has retired after a career that spans the life of Santa Anita, will be honored in a winner’s-circle ceremony following the fifth race on his 96th birthday Saturday. Hystericalady (Corey Nakatani riding) faces Selvatica (Garrett Gomez) and 10 others in Saturday’s Las Flores Handicap sprint for 12 fillies and mares. One Off (Brice Blanc) is the 117-pound high weight in what’s likely to be a small field for Sunday’s San Luis Obispo Handicap at 1 miles on turf. Next! Lava Man can expect 10 opponents, including fellow Grade I winners Brother Derek, Boboman and Wilko, when the 6-year-old tries to extend his local dominance in the $1 million Santa Anita Handicap a week from Saturday. The 10 listed Thursday by Santa Anita officials, with jockeys if they’ve been named: San Antonio Handicap 1-2-3 finishers Molengao (Victor Espinoza), Ball Four (Julien Leparoux) and El Roblar (Migliore); Strub Stakes 1-2-3 Arson Squad (Gomez), Spring at Last, and Brother Derek (Alex Solis); San Fernando Stakes winner Awesome Gem; Sunshine Millions Classic upsetter McCann’s Mojave (Frank Alvarado); Hollywood Turf Cup winner Boboman, and Wilko, 0 for 14 since the 2004 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Nakatani rides Lava Man, winner of eight in a row and 11 of his past 12 in California. Weight assignments will be announced Saturday. The lineup will be set Wednesday morning.

Sunday $150,000 San Luis Obispo, 4-year-olds and up, 1 mile (turf). GULFSTREAM PARK Saturday $200,000 Gulfstream Park Turf Stakes, 4-year-olds and up, 1 3/8 miles (turf). A WEEK AT THE RACES Santa Anita announced plans to lay down a synthetic main track in time for the Oak Tree opener Sept. 26, but didn’t say which brand it would use. Hollywood Park debuted its synthetic oval in 2006, and Del Mar and Golden Gate Fields are installing theirs, following a state mandate to switch to the more forgiving surfaces. Jon Court has won the George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award in balloting by the nation’s riders, and the well-liked 47-year-old will be honored March 25 at Santa Anita. The annual award recognizes a rider for qualities on and off the track. Hollywood Park has moved the Hollywood Gold Cup earlier in the calendar for 2007 in a reflection of the track’s emphasis on the newfangled CashCall Mile and American Oaks. The $750,000 Gold Cup moves to Saturday, June 30, essentially trading weekends with the $1 million (up from $750,000) CashCall-sponsored race for fillies and mares (Friday night, June 6) and the $750,000 Oaks for 3-year-old fillies (Saturday, June 7). In a track statement, racing secretary Martin Panza said the new dates make the distaff races “a much better fit” for the out-of-state and foreign horses they’re meant to attract. Martin Pedroza was bruised, but none of the three people in his car was seriously hurt, after a collision Wednesday in Duarte. Pedroza missed three mounts Thursday. Ron Franklin took a half-step forward in his comeback from drug trouble when Maryland officials on Tuesday restored his exercise-rider’s license and promised to consider a full jockey’s license in six months. Franklin, 47, is remembered as the teenage rider of Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Spectacular Bid in 1979. Triple Grade I winner English Channel dropped to the allowance level Thursday at Gulfstream Park and won in 1:44.59 at 1 1/8 miles on turf to break the two-year-old course record of Saint Stephen.

  • Talent Spotter: The young Chelsea star in line for his Premier League debut

    first_img1 Chelsea’s Dominic Solanke Chelsea are facing a striker injury crisis ahead of Sunday’s clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford with Diego Costa definitely ruled out and Loic Remy struggling with a hamstring injury.With Didier Drogba having just returned from an ankle injury and admitting he is not fully fit, it means youngster Dominic Solanke, who made an eye catching debut after coming on in the 6-0 win over Maribor, could earn a first Premier League appearance at Old Trafford.Little is known about the 17-year-old striker, so talkSPORT’s Talent Spotter decided to dig a little deeper.Name: Dominic SolankeDate of birth: 14 September 1997Birthplace: ReadingPosition: ForwardClub: ChelseaInternational appearances: Three – England Under-18sDid you know?1) Solanke has been with Chelsea since he was six years old and in recent years has enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks in west London.2) The teenager made massive waves in the Chelsea academy last season, smashing in 20 goals in 26 appearances, including a brace in the FA Youth Cup final victory over Fulham. He has also already appeared for the club’s Under-21s and in the UEFA Youth League.3) Solanke starred for England as they won the European Under-17 Championship in May, finishing as joint top scorer with four goals in four games, including a vital strike in the final against the Netherlands.4) Blues boss Jose Mourinho believes his young charge is destined for big things and Solanke recently signed a new three-year deal at Stamford Bridge, reflecting the club’s faith in his capabilities.5) The pacy and powerful striker’s debut against Maribor on Tuesday night made Solanke Chelsea’s youngest ever debutant in the Champions League at 17 years and 38 days old, beating previous holder Josh McEachran.They say: “Solanke is at a level where we know he has the talent but he’s far away. For him it was a perfect situation; the legs were tired even before he came on, the heartbeat was there before the first run but it’s a night he will never forget. For sure, he’s going to play many Champions League matches because he will be a good player.” – Jose Mourinho on the striker’s debut.“My conscience tells me that if, for example, [Lewis] Baker, [Izzy] Brown, and [Dominic] Solanke are not national team players in a few years, I should blame myself.” – Chelsea’s boss on the likelihood of international recongition for Solanke.He says: “I’m speechless. Making my debut at Stamford Bridge in front of all these fans in the Champions League is a dream come true. There’s no time to hide, you’ve just got to be confident and show your ability and when you get the opportunity, you’ve got to take it.” – Solanke on his debut and the possibility of facing Manchester United.Video evidence:last_img read more

  • TV DOCUMENTARY TO EXAMINE DECLINE IN DONEGAL ISLAND’S POPULATION

    first_imgA television documentary is to examine the reasons behind the drastic depopulation of Donegal’s Arranmore Island from 1,000 people to just over 500 in the past 50 years.Arranmore IslandIslanders is a TV3 documentary series focusing on life on Ireland’s islands.The four part series begins on Wednesday, April 15th and promises to be compulsive viewing. Documentary-makers set the scene…..Just three kilometers from the coast, Arranmore has two car ferries, two co-operatives, a fire-service, a secondary school and even a nightclub!Outwardly it seems perfect but it has a problem, a problem emblematic of many islands – its population is in swift decline.In the last fifty years, Arranmore’s population has halved from one thousand to five hundred, whilst nearly forty five percent of residents are over sixty five years of age. In the first episode of this landmark series for TV3, we meet Dr Shirley Gallagher (40s), a typical Arranmore Islander.Born off the island in London whilst her island parents were working there, Shirley’s family was reared on Arranmore. Shirley is well-travelled, well-educated and well able to speak her mind.Working in Sustainability & Environmental issues, Shirley returned home two years ago to apply all her learning and experience to her own home. She believes there are those on the island that don’t want to see change whilst others are apathetic.“When I saw the statistics on population decline I was truly shocked. You see the empty houses and derelict homes all around the place but it didn’t really trigger. I thought I need to do something about this – and here I am.”The impact of the population decline on Arranmore is entwined with another issue. Once, Arranmore had thirty trawlers and nearly one hundred men fishing its waters. Now, its inshore fleet is down to four boats with most men leaving to work in the more lucrative industries of mining or tunneling. But not all the men have left. Mild-mannered fisherman Neilie Kavanagh (40s) is preparing for the busy season ahead. Neilie is heartbroken over the decline of the inshore fishing industry in Arranmore.The ‘injustice’ of what has happened to his fishing village is deeply felt and it is hard not to feel sympathy for him. He explains the Catch-22 of the ‘harsh regulations’. If he is caught fishing illegally his licence will be revoked and his father’s family boat will no longer be able to fish. He is the custodian of the boat – the St. Anthony, built by his father on Arranmore over 40 years ago. Neilie has never worked or lived off Arranmore:“I was one of the lucky ones who didn’t have to emigrate. The boat was there and there were no rules or regulations when I started in 1983. You could fish away. You could catch spurdogs – they banned that, driftnet for salmon – they put in rules and regulations, in 2006 they put a complete ban on catching salmon. It was terrible because there were so many families depending on it.”Neilie blames bureaucracy and over-regulation for the decline of his way-of-life. The salmon fishery was a major earner during the season for Arranmore families. To compound matters fishing with gillnets was banned in AreaVIa – a major fishing ground off Donegal. This was done to preserve cod stocks but the Arranmore fishermen didn’t fish cod – they used gillnets to catch bait. In a perverse twist of fate they had to purchase their own bait from Killybegs in order to bait their pots.The fishing of spurdogs was also banned in 2008 in AreaVIa. Much of the inshore fleet is old and creaky having been decommissioned from the UK over 30 or 40 years ago so there is a sizeable barrier to entry for any new generations.In 2006 the fishermen of Arranmore were offered buyouts for their salmon licences. Most, including Neilie, refused to sell believing the outright ban to be unjust. The remaining fishermen of Arranmore were forced to turn to year-round fishing for crab and lobster. Neilie declares:“I was born and bred here and we’ve been fishing here, and my father before me, for over one hundred years. For them to turn around and say we were destroying the stocks is crazy. We’ve been doing this for over one hundred years.”With many twists and turns along the way, Islanders will follow the lives and stories of these characters to learn what threatens their survival, to discover a different way of life, and to share in what it means to be an islander.TV DOCUMENTARY TO EXAMINE DECLINE IN DONEGAL ISLAND’S POPULATION was last modified: April 3rd, 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:arranmoredonegalISLANDERSTV3last_img read more
