Supreme Court Justices to Attend LCC Prayer Service Today

first_imgJustices of the Supreme Court of Liberia, including Chief Justice Francis Korkpor, will today join members of the Liberian Council of Churches (LCC) for another round of intercessory prayers for Liberia.This Friday’s will mark the LCC’s seventh prayer service since it began praying for the nation in a National Prayer Campaign against Ebola.The one-hour Weekly Prayer Service, which is open to the public and begins at 12 noon, was inaugurated by Vice President Joseph N. Boakai.  VP Boakai launched the Ebola prayer campaign in the Providence Baptist Church Shrine, the nation’s oldest church edifice, where the services have been taking place since September 5.During the launch, the VP said that historically Liberians have sought the intervention of the Almighty when faced with great difficulty.“When all else is failing, the only place to turn to is the Almighty God, who is forever listening to our prayers,” Vice President Boakai declared.Citing Biblical references for the occasion, the VP pointed out that the battle against Ebola is the Lord’s. A call to unceasing prayer is not a call to constant prayers, but to persistent and consistent prayers. “The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much,” he said, quoting the Epistle of James.According to Apostle Dr. J. Adolphus During, chairman of the LCC’s National Prayer Committee, other major stakeholders have followed the Vice President in attending the prayer services.Dr. During disclosed that today, Justices of the Supreme Court have assured him that they would follow suit and attend the service to join in praying for the nation.Chairman During said while the Weekly Prayer Service focuses mainly on prayer against Ebola in the sub region and for peace and stability, “a holistic prayer is often made for Liberia.”According to him, these calamities were befalling the nation because Liberia has sinned against God, naming the sins of neglect, ingratitude and others as some of the sins, Liberians have committed against God. During the civil war, we prayed and God answered us, but as soon as we settled down, we forgot God,” Dr. During charged.Dr. During, who is the founder of the Soul Cleansing Clinic of Jesus Christ, told this newspaper that a few days before the nation observed a three-day fast and prayer, MSF and Samaritan’s Purse had threatened to pull out of Liberia.   But after calling on God to intervene, that decision changed, “ZMAPP came and the tremendous goodwill from the international community, including America, began to pour in.”The Weekly Prayer Service will run for the next three months under the theme ‘A Call to Unceasing Prayers,” taken from the Holy Bible books of I Chronicles 19:13 and I Thessalonians 5:17.According to Liberian history, the Providence Baptist Shrine, which is the small edifice overlooking Broad Street, has been used as a place of intercessory prayer whenever the nation was faced with a national crises.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Infrastructure, Natural Resources ministries vexed by Jagdeo’s corruption blast

first_imgThe ministries of Public Infrastructure and Natural Resources on Thursday denied there was continued corruption taking place within their subject areas, as they downplayed accusations levelled by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo at his weekly press conference held on the same day.In a vexed statement, both ministries reassured the public that all of the business conducted has been done within the law and regulations. They have rejected the Opposition Leader’s assertions, which they said were “beleaguered and desperate”, before challenging him to provide evidence.The ministries’ joint statement said, “The ministries are certain that he (Jagdeo) will be unable to do so, as no evidence to this effect exists. Mr. Jagdeo knows that much work has been done in uncovering the extreme corruption which was rampant while he was President and the PPP was in Government, and that the chickens are now coming home to roost”.They said months of tedious work are now resulting in charges being laid, and Mr. Jagdeo knows that very few in his government would be unscathed.“Instead of confronting their record of corruption, Mr. Jagdeo resorts to cheap theatrics and baseless political distraction. This Government’s visionary execution of infrastructural projects seems to be deeply irking Mr. Jagdeo, who failed to execute same during his presidency”, the statement read.last_img read more

Wading through water fees

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88The reason is that houses come with water pipes, which are connected to existing water companies that have set water rates. Sinclair calls this “a captive clientele.” “Residents can’t buy anywhere else,” he said. “It’s complicated to compare water companies because they are all different. Some are subsidized by property taxes, some are not. “Generally, we compete to stay within a certain range of each other. We stay close to what the \ has set for the independent companies.” Water companies get their water from a variety of sources, including local wells, reservoirs and the Colorado River, said Michael Whitehead, president of San Gabriel Valley Water Co. Fees can depend on from where a company gets its water. “The \ sets the rates for private companies based on the actual cost of service,” Whitehead said. “For billing, they use cubic feet to measure. If someone uses an average of 2,300 cubic feet of water a month, that would be 17,000gallons. MONTEBELLO – For a city of its size, Montebello has more water companies per capita than any other city in the area.Five companies provide water to Montebello’s 67,000 residents, while most cities of similar size have one or two. People may think that with all that competition, prices would be lower. But not so, says Brian Sinclair, general manager of South Montebello Irrigation District. “You’d be surprised how much it takes for showers, lawns, cars, etc. People often don’t realize how much they use,” he added. Two of the five companies – Montebello Land and Water Co. and South Montebello Irrigation District – are special districts where customers own the company and hold elections to choose board members. The other three local companies – San Gabriel Valley Water Co., Montebello City Water and California Water Service Co. – are private companies whose rates are set by the California Public Utilities Commission. The average monthly residential water bills for the five companies range from a low of $38.91 for Montebello Land and Water Co. to a high of $51.55 for South Montebello Irrigation District. Part of the reason for the myriad of water companies in Montebello can be attributed to its agricultural heritage, said Sinclair. As agriculture was slowly squeezed out, a patchwork of other companies filled the area’s domestic water needs. “We were basically an irrigation district,” Sinclair said. “We were incorporated in 1922 when a group of Japanese flower farmers got together. They needed to have irrigation for their flower farms, so we started as an irrigation district and eventually evolved into a domestic water company when the flower farms gave way in the 1950s to homes.” William Mulholland, an early settler of the area, not only named the city “Montebello” (Italian for “beautiful hills”), but developed the water system which was incorporated in 1900 as the Montebello Land and Water Co. While the Montebello City Water Co. sets its own rates, the city pays a fee to the California Water Service Co. to manage and operate it. Presently, Montebello City Council members are considering options regarding the city water company. They are seeking bids for a consultant to help officials decide whether to sell or lease the company, said City Administrator Richard Torres. pam.wight@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

REED WINS LIFFORD AC RIVERINE 10K – WHERE DID YOU COME?

first_imgMembers of Lifford AC at the Riverine 10KA big thank you to all who turned out on a wet wet morning for running in the Lifford AC Riverine 10K.While up to 100 pre registered didn’t make it, we still had 280 recorded 10K finishers as well as 25 walkers, pushing the numbers overall to up over 300.For those who missed out, while it was wet, there wasn’t a breeze, and we told you it was a course conducive to good times. For those who did make it, they were treated to an excellent mens race, with a race to the finish involving three Derry athletes, City of Derry’s Declan Reed breaking the tape in 31.09 with Foyle Valley’s Scott Rankin second in 31.13 just ahead of City of Derry’s Greg Roberts also in 31.13. Three men just outside the elusive 31 minute barrier which on a dry day could well have been broken.The womens race also served up a treat, and while the men were just outside their bonus prize target, Irish international, Lifford AC’s Ann Marie McGlynn was in flying form, smashing her 10K personal best by over half a minute to come home in 34.41, picking up the €200 bonus prize for under 35 minutes. Second home was fellow Lifford AC team mate Claire McGuigan who had a fantastic race to clock 38.53, with Finn Valley AC’s Catherine Dooher third in 40.51.The feedback afterwards from the runners was of numerous personal best times and positive feedback also for the course, and overall race organisation and refreshments.Lifford AC wishes to acknowledge the support of all participants who came out to support the 10K and 5K walk. We also wish to thank Dolans Bureau de Change at the Travellers Rest for their kind sponsorship of the race, Joe Gallen and Donegal Creameries for the supply of milk at the finish, all the race marshalls which numbered nearly 40, Lifford Celtic for their marshalling support, and to those who were up since early dawn making refreshments and to those who helped serve teas, helped with registration, etc.Thank you to Const Seamus Duffy and his team in the PSNI for their support and help with the race management in Strabane.

THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON ANGRY AT BOO BHOYS AS CELTIC LOSE AGAIN

first_imgLennon is heckled by fansFROM NEIL DOHERTY IN GLASGOW: CELTIC suffered another post-European hangover at Parkhead today, losing 1-0 to Inverness CT.Billy McKay’s goal in the second half gave the Highlanders their first ever win at Celtic Park and no amount of Hoops pressure could turn the game back their way.But what was very frustrating for Lennon – and most fans – were the boo boys who turned on the team and the manager. During one incident a fan uttered a mouthful of expletives at Lennon in the second half.It left Lennon angry and frustrated afterwards.“They are frustrated. I disagreed with them, I didn’t like what they said about the team,” said Neil.“Look, if they are not happy with what I am doing and they want me to go, I will. “If the fans make it clear that they are not happy and they want me out then that’s okay, I will do the honourable thing.“I can’t repeat it (what fans said) because it is public arena but there were a lot of expletives and heavy criticism, which I didn’t think was justified and (there was) a lack of patience with the team as well.“If there was a lack of application and commitment I would be the first to criticise the team.“I didn’t see that today but I did see a lack of composure and quality in the final third and that’s what cost us.“If I think it is justified then I don’t have a problem with it but I don’t think it was justified today. “But they pay their money, they are allowed to say what they like. I’ve got my opinions on it and sometimes I give them as well.“I am not happy with the league form, it is my team at the end of the day so I take the responsibility for it.“It’s not for the lack of trying to find the answers.”It was a frustrating game to watch; Celtic missed more than enough chances to win the game. As someone who has been going to Parkhead for decades however, I find fans who can’t take a defeat very fickle indeed.I’d be the first to criticise, but it seems for some fans what Neil Lennon is doing isn’t enough.They have short memories.And they’d be better off getting behind the team than filling the air with four-letter words – foul-mouthed abuse gets us nowhere.THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON ANGRY AT BOO BHOYS AS CELTIC LOSE AGAIN was last modified: November 24th, 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:THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON ANGRY AT BOO BHOYS AS CELTIC LOSE AGAINlast_img read more

DONEGAL MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAM CALLED TO SECOND EMERGENCY

first_imgThe Donegal Mountain Rescue Team were called into action for the second time in a week on Sunday after a member of a walking group made a call to the emergency services requesting assistance.The call was made after one of their party had become very weak after a slip that had left her in a very weakened state near Dunfanaghy. A team from Donegal Mountain Rescue Team was deployed to assist the lady in question.Due to the 1.5km distance to the road, over which the team would have to carry the stretcher, Malin Head Coast Guard Station was requested to put their Sligo based helicopter, Rescue 118, on standby. The casualty was attended to and monitored, while two further units from the team responded. A stretcher carry-out was performed to the roadside, to a waiting HSE ambulance for further treatment. Donegal MRT would like to thank the casualty’s fellow hillwalkers for their assistance in this rescue operation.A similar incident took place on the McSwynes Gun Loop trail in Dunfanaghy the previous Sunday afternoon when a lady fell and fractured an ankle.DMRT and the Mulroy Coastguard attended but due to the nature of the ladies injury and the probability of a stretcher carry out going into dusk it was decided to airlift the lady to Sligo General Hospital in rescue helicopter 118.  DONEGAL MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAM CALLED TO SECOND EMERGENCY was last modified: February 27th, 2013 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:donegal mountain rescue teamlast_img read more
