Ambassador Malac Assures Liberia of US Commitment

first_imgUnited States Ambassador Deborah Malac has assured Liberians that her country remains committed to the long-lasting relationship between the two countries and will do its best to build a Liberia that is at peace with itself and its neighbors, and offers economic opportunity to all Liberian citizens.Making the commitment on July 3, 2014 at the Executive Pavilion during celebration of America’s 238th Independence, Ambassador Malac recalled that the partnership between Liberia and the United States is a long and enduring one that manifests itself in many ways, touching a broad range of activities.She mentioned electricity as one area of interest to the U.S. in terms of making it available in every part of Liberia.Considering Liberia’s past and acknowledging the need for collective efforts in building a nation that Liberians want, the US Ambassador noted that building a bright future is no easy task, but requires unity of effort, a shared vision and a commitment to the common good.“This does not mean that there must always be complete agreement on every policy decision — alternative or dissenting views can drive innovative solutions and are a necessary component of a vibrant democracy — but it does require public discourse marked by civility and respect.  We can agree to disagree while continuing to work together in the best interests of the country,” she stressed.Furthermore, the US Diplomat stated “Another’s success or opportunity should not automatically unleash unfounded invective, but should serve as a model of what is possible to achieve through joint effort.”“The wheels of progress cannot turn forward if they are constantly blocked by the stones of pettiness and personal attack whose sole purpose is to prevent things from happening or to preserve political or personal advantage,” Ambassador Malac noted.She told the people of Liberia that sustainable, broad-based development and true economic prosperity do not happen overnight, but require  sustained commitment and concentrated focus and lots of patience.She noted that the administration of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Liberia has made progress, but there is much more to do to deliver the promise and benefits of peace and prosperity to all Liberians.Recalling some areas where the United States Government has demonstrated its commitment to Liberia, the US Ambassador mentioned the 2nd session of U.S.-Liberia Partnership Dialogue, the visits of Counselor Tom Shannon and Deputy Secretary of State Heather Higginbottom, the  selection of 15 young Liberians to participate in President Obama’s Young Leaders Initiative (YALI) summer fellowship program, and the invitation of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit scheduled for early August.The ambassador listed some activities through which the U.S. has previously demonstrated its commitment to Liberia. These include Liberia’s recognition as as one of only six Power Africa Initiative countries; the transfer of leadership of the new Armed Forces of Liberia to a Liberian officer corps; and new patrol boats for Liberia’s Coast Guard.There are also ongoing programs to support agriculture, education and healthcare delivery; the Center for Disease Control (CDC); and the Department of Defense and USAID assistance to GOL for Ebola response are other areas of commitment.President Sirleaf:Beginning with quotations of former U.S. Presidents,  President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf congratulated the people of the United States for their 238 years of existence as a nation and noted that it took sacrifices and commitment to reach where they are.She said as people who have experienced years of turbulence, Liberians are championing their own journey to freedom, noting, “If we have to succeed, we need to do what is right not only for ourselves but for the prosperity of all.”The President said the journey is not perhaps to sacrifice with blood but with sweat to make change possible.  She added that for Liberians to succeed everyone must demonstrate commitment and be willing to give more and not less so that the next generation will be better.Liberia and the United States have remained deeply joined together in partnership and relationship over the long years of existence, she recalled, and expressed commitment to nurturing this bond through collaborations and partnership dialogue.President Sirleaf acknowledged that Liberia continues to benefit from U.S. gesture in areas of security, accountability and other essential needs to the country. She also counted on U.S. commitment to selecting Liberia as one of the power countries to be a welcoming development and called on that Government to live up to it to provide light to all parts of Liberia.The U.S. Independence Day celebration at the Executive Pavilion was attended by Government officials including the Chief Justice Francis Korkpor and members of the Judiciary, Senate President Pro-Tempore Gbehzohngar Findley, members of the House of Representatives, Ministers and heads of agencies and public corporations, and the Doyen and Members of the Diplomatic Corps.The United States of America gained its independence on July 4, 1776 with George Washington becoming its first President.  The celebration in Liberia on July 3 is basically due to time difference between Liberia and that country.Liberia being five hours ahead in day light will be approaching the 5th of July when Americans are celebrating the anniversary on the 4th.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Wrestlers thriving in High Desert

first_imgThe Mojave River League has been strong in recent years, arguably the toughest league in the county. But on Saturday at Carter the MRL really hit the jackpot. Sultana put five wrestlers into the CIF-State championships on Friday and Saturday in Bakersfield. Hesperia advanced four. Going from Sultana are Erik Baker (135), Cody Bollinger (140), Jarrod Brooksher (145), Eli McWatters (160) and Zac Sweeney (215). Wrestling has been strong in the High Desert for a long time, dating back at least to 1987 when Dan Henderson led the Jackrabbits to the CIF-State title. Henderson further made a name for himself as a two-time U.S. Olympic Greco-Roman wrestler and as an Ultimate Fighter. Advancing from Hesperia are Daniel Gudino (130), Dominick Reyes (171), Justin Correa (189) and Ryan Hoover (275). Obviously, the talent is concentrated in the city of Hesperia, where excellent youth programs exist. “The kids work hard and we have good coaches,” Sultana athletic director Pete Delagardelle said. “They spend a lot of time and there are good age-group programs that the kids participate in. It gives them a good base.” All five Sultans going to state wrestled for No Limit Wrestling. The program was previously called the Outlaw Wrestling Club, but was changed at the request of the Sultana administration. Before that it was the Jet Wrestling Club, a group many of the Sultans belonged to as kids. Baker said at the CIF-Southern Section Eastern Division meet that McWatters, as a kid, talked him into wrestling for the Jets. center_img The dominance of the Sultans and Scorpions has Hesperians enthused. “We’re excited,” Sultana coach Rockey Humphrey said of getting five wrestlers to state. “The High Desert had kind of fallen off the face of the Earth since 1987 when Victor Valley won the state title. But this shows that wrestling is big in the High Desert again.” Humphrey may be overstating things when he says “fallen off the face of the Earth.” The Hesperia teams have always been formidable and Apple Valley was outstanding under coach Frank Pulice, who resigned from his wrestling post several years ago to concentrate on football. In recent memory, the area has not produced such a bonanza of quality wrestlers. Could that mean that either team has a chance to bring home a state title, a la Victor Valley in ’87? “We’d have to be almost flawless,” said Humphrey, a 1992 Hesperia graduate. “Poway has qualified its entire team, all 14 of its wrestlers. Buchanan, from the Central Section, has qualfied 11. Vacaville has qualified 12. We’d have to be pretty outstanding.” COWBOY UP Two Cajon wrestlers, Jesse Moreno (135 pounds) and Alfonso “Chops” Hernandez (130) are also headed for the CIF-State wrestling championships after their fine showing at CIF-Masters last week. Moreno and Hernandez have been working out every day at Cajon, wrestling with assistant coach Joe Castro and former Cowboy wrestler Sean Pease, said Al Castro, a Cowboy assistant and father of Joe. The Cajon contingent plans to leave for Bakersfield on Thursday. SORENSEN DELIBERATING Colton defensive back/wideout Daniel Sorensen is thinking over a football scholarship offer from Brigham Young University. Sorensen last Tuesday told TotalBlueSports.net that he was going to orally commit to BYU on Wednesday. But after talking over the situation with Colton coach Harold Strauss, Sorensen decided to wait to meet the BYU coaches in person, said Roxann Sorensen, mother of the player, to The Sun. Roxann also indicated there is a good chance Sorensen will eventually commit to BYU. Strauss said last week that Sorensen will probably visit BYU at spring break or for BYU Junior Day in June. Both Sorensen and defensive end/tight end Damien Holmes also received scholarship offers from Duke University last week. They had previously received offers from the University of Mississippi. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Southampton boss warns over video games ‘addiction’

first_imgHasenhuettl admitted to blocking hotel Wi-Fi during away trips while in charge of former club RB Leipzig.“I think it’s something you have to force actively against and I will do this,” he said at his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s Premier League trip to Brighton.“I did it in my last club, we had also problems with players, they were playing until three o’clock in the morning before a game.“You have to be active and to help protect them because it’s not a small problem because if you are honest it’s the same as alcoholism or getting addicted to drugs.”Hasenhuettl feels it would be easier to tackle video-game addiction if it were seen as an illness but does not believe any of his Saints squad currently have serious problems with gaming.“In my own squad, at the moment no,” he said. “But you can be sure that I’m always in contact with my captain or with a few players to speak about them.”“As long as it’s not officially for the government an illness, then we have to protect them in our way,” he added.“If it would be an illness then it would be easy for the government to say the companies have to give a block after three hours, for example, that they cannot play this game any more.“I will be active always in this direction because I have to protect them and also outside the pitch and that means for 24 hours I have to look at them and that’s what I will do.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Southampton’s Austrian manager Ralph Hasenhuettl © AFP/File / OLLY GREENWOODLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 28 – Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuettl has compared the habit of spending excessive amounts of time playing video games to alcoholism and drug addiction, saying footballers need protection.The Austrian was speaking after an anonymous English Football League player revealed lengthy gaming sessions were threatening to ruin his career.last_img read more

Terry wants Chelsea stay despite lack of contract talks

first_imgJohn Terry admits he’s desperate to stay at Chelsea – but claims no talks have begun about a new deal.The Blues’ policy for players over 30 is to offer one-year contract extensions and the skipper is entering the final few months of his present deal.The 34-year-old captain wants to play as much as possible and continue a Chelsea career which began as a teenager and hopes, now Eden Hazard has been given a contract extension until 2021, the club will begin negotiations with him.“No talks have happened yet between myself and the club,” Terry said. “The club know my position. Hopefully I know theirs and it will get done.“I think we both respect the position – there are a lot more important players.“Hazard has just been done and for me, that’s the most important for the club.“Without them even telling me, I know that’s the first priority for them. Hopefully, they will be knocking on the door soon.”Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole were allowed to leave last summer at the end of their contracts, but Terry signed a new deal hours after the season – Jose Mourinho’s first of his second spell as boss – closed.Terry was anxious last term, but will be less so if Chelsea wait over his deal again this season, particularly as Mourinho wants him to stay.He added: “I was maybe a little bit nervous. I was edgy. (But) we have had a good chat. I know their position, they know mine.“I want to stay. Hopefully my performances are showing that and they can keep me.“I will be happy to get one more year and then see how it goes. I am taking it year by year – I haven’t got much choice.”Terry does not just want to stay at Chelsea, but play, insisting he does not need a rest despite playing nearly every game for the Blues this term.“I don’t want it (a rest),” he said.“I am coming toward the end of my career so it’s important I’m playing as much as I can and stay fit.”Another of Chelsea’s distinguished players of the last decade could depart this summer.Since Thibaut Courtois returned from his three-year loan at Atletico Madrid as number one, there has been speculation Petr Cech will leave Stamford Bridge.And Chelsea could be forced to sell the 32-year-old, signed from Rennes in 2004, in the summer, when he will enter the final 12 months of his current contract.“He is good enough to play for anyone,” Terry added.“He’s been worth 10, 12 points to us every season. I have not spoken to him about it (what Cech will do in the summer).“He still has a lot to give and is fighting for his place, which is great. He’s not just given up and said, ‘The place is yours, Thibaut’.“When he’s come in he’s been brilliant and given the manager food for thought.” 1last_img read more

Maggette not fazed by talk

first_imgLOS ANGELES – When the Clippers acquired Corey Maggette from the Orlando Magic in June 2000, the player heard the news in a place full of video games, talcum powder and automatic ball returns. “In my first year, I didn’t have an agent, and the way I heard I got traded was on the radio,” Maggette said. “I was in a bowling alley, bowling with my dad, and all of sudden, I hear, `The Magic trade Corey Maggette and Keyon Dooling to the Clippers.’ So it’s like, this time I knew something was going on. I felt better about it.” This time, Maggette was not traded, but at least he was keyed into the Clippers’ dealings with the Indiana Pacers in an attempt to acquire controversial forward Ron Artest. Maggette says that after meeting with coach Mike Dunleavy on Saturday, he understands what transpired with the near deal and has no hard feelings about it. joe.stevens@presstelegram.com (562) 499-1338 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Maybe this organization, if it would have went down, it is something that they were doing to try to better this team. I’ve been here six years, and I’ve been through all the bad times with the team. If it was good for the team or trying to make the team better, I was for it.” In earlier negotiations, the Pacers said they wanted Maggette for Artest, but the Clippers only offered Chris Wilcox and draft picks in a three-way trade that included the Atlanta Hawks’ Al Harrington. On Wednesday, Harrington told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he expected Maggette and Artest to be swapped, meaning that he was out of the deal with the Clippers offering Maggette for Artest. As it turned out, the Pacers nixed the trade because they said they could not give the player medical clearance. Maggette is out with a separated ligament in his left foot, is expected to be out of a cast in three weeks and may play in six weeks. The word is that the Pacers actually have a separate trade on the table that they consider better than acquiring Maggette. They still are expected to trade Artest by the Feb. 23 trade deadline. last_img
