BY: INDRAWATTIE NATRAMDespite several reports made to the Region Two Administration about a growing gap in the centre of the Maria’s Delight bridge in Region Two (Pomeroon/Supenaam) nothing has been done to seal the widening crack, leaving road users who traverse the bridge at risk, especially cyclists.The gap in the middle of the bridge creating havoc for road usersDrivers and motorcyclists have vented their concerns over the widening gap.According to a driver, when the “crease” in the bridge was very little he had reported the issue but nothing was done. That crease has now expanded and if the bridge is not given the attention it requires it may eventually fall apart, the concerned resident related.A People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) executive Francis Darchville had also reported the gap in the bridge. Darchville said it’s very heart wrenching to see how huge the crack has become and he is of the opinion it could have be sealed earlier. Darchville said several motorcyclists had also reported to him about the constraints they face when using the bridge.When contacted Region Two Chairman Devanand Ramdatt explained that on numerous occasions, the issue was raised and he even made representation for the crack to be sealed. Ramdatt said the issue is currently before the Regional Democratic Council (RDC).On 25 May 2016, the issue was also raised with the Public Infrastructure Minister, but no improvement works have commenced to date. At the last RDC statutory meeting for June, the issue was again raised by a PPP\C Councillor and in response, the Regional Executive Officer Rupert Hopkinson informed that the Region does not have the resources to fix the bridge.Hopkinson said the bridge requires Central Government’s intervention since the Region does not have the necessary machinery to conduct the remedial work.The Region Two chairman also raised issues concerning the sinking of the approaches to several bridges along the public road, filling of potholes, clearing of road shoulders, noticeable sinking of the road in some areas, and stray animals.Ramdatt said the RDC is of the strong view that the Ministry of Public Infrastructure has an integral role to play in addressing the dangers posed by the Maria’s Delight bridge, several sinking bridges, potholes, as well as the installation and maintenance of street lights.In light of the problems identified, the Regional Chairman said he is urging road users, both pedestrians and motorists to exercise care when using the public roadways.
There were exciting wins over the weekend, and thus gives the probability that there might be strange entries in Monrovia for the quarterfinals at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.On Saturday, fans of Grand Bassa County were extremely embarrassed in the opener of the 2015/2016 National County Sports Meet when the football and kickball squads were humiliated at home – and in their presence.The dominant red and white fans are grumbling for a change in the chairmanship to Garmondeh Karnga – who they said, never caused such humiliation during his tenure.The Orange fans of Bong County took over the field with ‘very wild celebration’ in their two opening wins.The defending kickball champs – Kpatawi girls of Bong dragged the Gbehzohn girls 5-2 points in nine rounds after double tied. The football squad of Bong County maintained the spirits to defeat defending football champs and host Grand Bassa County 2-0.The wins have put Bong one-leg to qualification and need another win to book a place to sojourn to Monrovia for the ‘Big 8.’This means Bassa must win her remaining games in both kickball and football to comfortably join group leader Bong County.One more defeat or a draw will definitely put them out of contention, and will allow either Sinoe or River Gee County to move ahead.The second day of the County Sports Meet – in the Group 1 fixture, River Gee narrowly hammered Sinoe County 6-5 points in kickball; and 1-0 in football.Bong County tops the group with a goal difference followed by River Gee – the favorites.In Group Il battles, Grand Cape Mount County unmercifully whipped Bomi County 19-0 points at the Sanniquellie Sports Stadium.Ivanline Corneh and Mekie Bollied made more home runs, while Myriah Zuo won the highest air ball and veteran kickballer Mary Ben contributed to their success as ‘the pitcher.”In the second game, Nimba County beat Maryland County 11-4 points.In football, Bomi County defeated Grand Cape Mount County 2-1. The 2008/2009 champs got the opener through a spot kick from defender Christian Zeke in the 5th minute. After recess, the 2011/2012 winners rotated the score in the 48th minute from Dada Eto’o strike. Two minuteslater, Bomi’s versatile midfielder Sekou Sheriff increased the tally from a scissor kick. Another win from Bomi County will make them to qualify for the first time in three years since 2011.Host Nimba County and Maryland settled to a pulsating 1-1 draw.Maryland skipper Patrick Williams raised the curtain in the 19th minute, and a minute later, Irvin Gbotoe levelled the tally. Bomi County leads Group II.In Grand Gedeh’s Zone – Group III, Grand Kru whipped River Cess County 6-4 points, and Grand Gedeh thrashed Lofa 15-8 points in kickball.River Cess and Grand Kru counties ended goal-less in the football encounter, while Lofa County exceptionally whipped host county Grand Gedeh 1-0.In Group of IV Montserrado County thrashed host Margibi 7-3 points as well as 3-1 in football.Margibi’s defeat has added to the defeat of host counties to three.The Chairman of the Nimba County Steering Committee, Floyd Tomah told newsmen yesterday that the Mountainous Boys did ‘well’ because she was the only host county which didn’t suffer any defeat.He, however, expressed disappointment over the results owing to the level of preparation since September.However, according to the fixture, the preliminary continues for the ‘Big 8’ quarterfinal slots.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Knoll said trips to Tel Aviv University, as well as on-site visits to homeless centers, rounded out the U.S. delegation’s learning experience. Not only did he share his model with Israeli social workers, his Israeli counterparts introduced Knoll to a new family model being used there. He is now interested in exploring how it might work with his Whittier program, he said. Accompanying Knoll to Israel was 59-year-old Patrick Bouchard, who only a few years ago was homeless and living on the streets of Whittier. First Day helped Bouchard get his life back on track. He was able to land a paid job as the resident housing director for the past year. Before that, he worked as a volunteer. “It was fantastic, a once in a lifetime experience,” Bouchard of the trip. “To know we were walking on the same streets where some of the major religions began was amazing. And they treated us like royalty.” He became homeless after a job loss spurred a “downward spiral,” a series of “bad luck and bad decisions,” Bouchard said. “You lose your motivation once you get down to a certain point,” said Bouchard. “First Day helped me get my self-esteem and self-worth back. And I found so much gratification helping others who are in the same situation I was.” firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WHITTIER – A model for dealing with homelessness designed by the director of the Whittier Area First Day Coalition has sparked the interest of social workers in Israel. First Day Director Ted Knoll recently returned from a weeklong trip to Israel, where he presented to officials there his “Reciprocal Community Engagement Model” – a holistic type of approach to helping homeless people make the transition back into society. Invited to Israel by the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles, Knoll discussed his model and provided information on dealing with homelessness to social workers in Tel Aviv. The trip was part of the Jewish Federation’s Task Force on Poverty and Food Insecurity, which comes out of the organization’s Tel Aviv/Los Angeles Partnership. First Day was chosen because of its focus on “client empowerment,” said Carla Rodman, spokeswoman for the Jewish Federation. “Each of the organizations attending were represented by a professional from the organization, in addition to a former client who is a success story of the model,” Rodman said. Other delegates on the trip included representatives from both the Jewish Federation and the Ocean Park Community Center, a network of shelters and services for homeless and low-income families in Santa Monica. As Israel moves towards using more non-governmental organizations to deal with social problems, they are interested in studying how the organizations work, Knoll said. Traditionally, paid Israel government social workers managed homelessness issues in that country, he added. “There were two issues they saw with our model – client empowerment and community engagement,” Knoll said. “We help the residents climb the ladder to self-sufficiency through training and breaking down the barriers between them and the community. It makes it easier to integrate.”
11 6. Cesc Fabregas (right centre midfield) – Fabregas has left many frustrated by his sudden ability to rediscover his form following 12 months of poor, almost uninterested, performances. In the last three months, however, he has suggested that he shouldnt be written off just yet. Ruben Loftus-Cheek may have his eye on replacing the former Arsenal man, though. 7. Miralem Pjanic (centre midfield) – With Nemanja Matic no longer first choice in the centre of the park and John Obi Mikels future uncertain, a new central midfielder may be a top priority for Conte. One such player wanted is reportedly Pjanic. The Bosnians versatility could make him an ideal fit at Stamford Bridge. He has been linked with Chelsea before and they could finally land him this coming summer. 11 11 4. Matt Miazga (centre back) – The John Stones saga seems to have cooled, while rumoured Conte target Leonardo Bonucci recently laughed off suggestions of a Chelsea transfer, insisting his future lies with Juventus. So, could the Blues new manager look a little closer to home? Miazga has played only once, but current interim boss Guus Hiddink could feature him regularly between now and the end of the season. Its therefore down to the American to prove he can perform at the highest level. 11 11 2. Branislav Ivanovic (right back) – Ivanovics form at the beginning of the season was simply awful. He was perhaps their weakest link at the back, beaten with ease by opposing wingers. However, after spending a few weeks on the sidelines with injury before Christmas, he returned far improved, even moving into central defence following injuries to Kurt Zouma and John Terry. At 32 years old, Chelsea need a long-term replacement to the Serb, but he could have another season in him yet. 8. Oscar (left centre midfield) – Conte is a known admirer of Oscar, openly voicing his admiration of the playmaker during his time in charge of Juventus. The Brazil international will therefore be delighted at the prospect of working with the Italian, but hell have to up his game having been far too inconsistent over the past two seasons. 11 3. Kurt Zouma (centre back) – Zouma is currently out for the remainder of the season with anterior cruciate ligament damage, disappointing for the coaching staff as Chelsea look to ease John Terrys inevitable summer exit. The Frenchman, nonetheless, is likely to be the one of the first names on Contes team sheet next season. 11 1. Thibaut Courtois (goalkeeper) – click the arrow above to see who else makes Conte’s possible line up next season – Unless injury plays a role, Courtois is guaranteed to start between the posts next season. He is still yet to return to top form since his comeback from a three-month lay off at the end of last year, with question marks over his decision-making, but he is the future in goal for Chelsea. 11 11 11 11 10. Romelu Lukaku (striker) – Technical director Michael Emenalo, according to reports in the Telegraph, is keen to re-sign Lukaku in the summer and he often gets his way. Diego Costa could leave at the end of the season and a young player, with a point to prove at Stamford Bridge, could be exactly the replacement needed. Whether Everton agree to doing business with Chelsea, however, is debatable. Chelsea have confirmed the arrival of Antonio Conte. The Italy head coach will take over at Stamford Bridge after this summer’s 2016 European Championship finals in France, having signed a three-year deal.With Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor finally confirmed and little left to play for – other than pride – attention can now turn to next season.And one aspect of interest is how, led by Conte, Chelsea could line up. Will he bring in new signings? Could he change formation?Taking such questions into consideration, we’ve put together a possible Blues XI for next season – check it out by viewing the slideshow above. 9. Willian (right side attack) – Chelseas Player of the Year award will no doubt fall into the hands of Willian come the end of the season, with the Brazilian one of few whose form has actually improved this term. Hes almost guaranteed a role under Conte, but he could do with grabbing a few more goals. Four in the Premier League leaves much to be desired. 5. Cesar Azpilicueta (left back) – Azpilicueta has remained one of Chelseas most consistent performers this season and is unlikely to lose his place when Conte arrives in July. Filipe Luis was left with no choice but to abruptly end his time at Stamford Bridge last summer, and Abdul Baba Rahman has done little to suggest he deserves a place ahead of the Spaniard. 11. Edinson Cavani (left side attack) – Paris Saint-Germain could let Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cavani go in the summer and both wont be short of offers. The latter, the Telegraph report, is a top target for Conte. Diego Costa has recently been linked with a move to the Parc des Princes, which could aid Chelsea in their possible pursuit of the Uruguay international. Not to mention he wouldnt be as pricey as Contes other alleged target Gonzalo Higuain.
3. Willy Caballero has been released by Man City – Many Man City fans were sorry to see him leave. Caballero, 35, is very much the team player and still has something to offer; the goalkeeper is reportedly being courted by both Newcastle and Chelsea. 4. Pablo Zabaleta was released by Man City – Which fan wouldnt want a player as committed and as dedicated to a team as Zabaleta, 32, was to Man City? Supporters loved him because he played with the desire of a fan and he is still a quality defender, as evidenced by how quickly West Ham snapped him up following his release. Last season’s Premier League clubs have revealed the players they have released and there are a number of big names being shown the door.John Terry stands out, and the Chelse legend has been linked with a move to Aston Villa, who finished in the bottom half of the Championship last season.Here, talkSPORT.com attempts to identify five of the best to see who could still be an important first team player in the top flight, beginning with Jan Kirchhoff – he’s still young enough to sort his fitness out and star in the Premier League. 5 5 5 5 5 5. Jan Kirchhoff has been released by Sunderland – Sunderland fans will lament Kirchhoff’s lack of fitness during his time in the north east, because when he is fit the German is an effective and classy midfielder. Amazingly hes still only 26 and could yet find his feet in the Premier League. Here, talkSPORT.com looks at other players like Kirchoff who have recently been released by club’s from last season’s Premier League. Kirchoff kicks off the top five click right to see the best of the rest. 2. Gael Clichy has been released by Man City – Liverpool have been linked with the left-back, 31, who will no doubt interest a number of Premier League and other European clubs. In his final season at Man City he played 25 league games. 1. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been released by Man United – When hes fit, scoring goals is still not a problem for 35-year-old Ibrahimovic, who put 27 away in all competitions for Man United in his only season in the Premier League. He will be missed.
