The Lofa Bridge in Gola Konneh District, Grand Cape Mount County in Western Liberia, is now in such deplorable condition, with citizens calling it a “death trap.” Commuters, including businesspeople, have condemned the deplorable condition of the bridge. They said if the situation is not addressed before the approaching rainy season, traveling in the district will be difficult, if not impossible, and would create socioeconomic hardships on the residents.Sheriff Karmo, a resident of the district, told the Daily Observer recently that due to its condition, travelers prefer walking to using vehicles to cross the bridge.He attributed the fast deteriorating condition of the bridge to logging trucks using it every day, adding that “the situation is disheartening.” Our reporter, who visited the area, observed that the planks that were nailed to the iron guards under the bridge are now moving apart, leaving holes and spaces that cannot allow vehicles and motorcycles to safely cross the bridge. Meanwhile Gola Konneh residents are appealing to central government to reconstruct the Lofa Bridge, which connects their district with Gbarpolu County. The bridge serves as an economic link between the people of the remote district of Kongba in Gbarpolu County and the nation’s capital, Monrovia. The bridge was built in the early 1960s prior to the establishment of the National Iron Ore Company (NIOC) in the Western Region. Since then, the bridge has been in a deplorable state until three years ago when the Ministry of Public Works, with funding from Western Cluster Limited, repaired the bridge. The repair work was technically supported by the Forestry Development Authority (FDA).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud celebrates his winning goal against Everton Arsenal leapfrogged Manchester United back into third place in the Premier League as goals either side of the break from Olivier Giroud and Tomas Rosicky sealed a nervy 2-0 victory over Everton.It was a tense encounter at the Emirates Stadium, where a dire midweek display in the Champions League against Monaco surely played on the hosts’ minds.Fans were made to witness a similarly turgid display from their side but, despite a second-half rally from Everton, they managed to claim a vital three points.It meant another Europa League headache for the Toffees, who failed to rekindle the form that saw them sweep aside Swiss outfit Young Boys 7-2 on aggregate to make the last-16 this week.Top striker Romelu Lukaku scored five goals over those two games, including a hat-trick in the first-leg, but the big Belgian just didn’t get the service against the Gunners, while youngster Ross Barkley again struggled to perform.In a pedestrian opening half, with Everton controlling possession but failing to take advantage of the hosts’ edgy start, it took 27 minutes for either side to land a shot on target, and even then it was well blocked as Giroud looked for goal.Gabriel Paulista was handed his first Premier League start by Arsene Wenger but his early error nearly allowed Lukaku to put the visitors in front, the striker stealing possession after the centre-back let a long punt up field drop over his shoulder.Lukaku would have scored if not for the alert David Ospina, who rushed off his line to punch the ball away and then chased the frontman outside his box to put the ball out with a brilliant sliding challenge.However, the Janaury signing soon made up for his blunder with a goal-saving block, sliding in to deny Lukaku from getting a shot away in the area.That near miss seemed to wake Arsenal from their slumber and they finally broke the deadlock on 38 minutes when Giroud found the net with a neat finish from Mesut Ozil’s corner.Arsenal ended the first half strongly, with Santi Cazorla seeing a curling shot saved by Tim Howard, but it was Everton who enjoyed the brighter start to the second.Ospina unconvincingly pawed a whipped free kick out for a corner when it seemed straightforward enough to catch it, but he later pulled off two crucial saves to maintain his side’s lead, first tipping Lukaku’s arrowed volley over his crossbar before clutching on-loan Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon’s drive.Despite the Gunners’ greater amount of efforts on goal, Everton were the more dominant side in the second-half but they seemed to tire in the closing stages.And – after Ozil went close – Rosicky spared the Gunners fans’ nerves with a late second to seal it, the substitute seeing his scuffed shot trickle in off the unfortunate Phil Jagielka.Seven minutes were added following an earlier injury to Francis Coquelin after a nasty clash of head with team-mate Giroud, but Arsenal managed to hold on for the win. 1

Merritt’s girlfriend said she had given him permission to read the notes but the nurse claimed he was still not entitled to read the notes.He then began to challenge the nurse and two security personnel had to be called to remove the accused man from the hospital.Gardai eventually arrived and arrested Merritt under the Public Order Act.Solicitor Frank Dorrian told Letterkenny District Court he could not explain why his clientwanted to read his girlfriend’s medical chart as he has no medical experience.Merritt, of Barns Court, Ballybofey, told Judge Paul Kelly that he was sorry for what had happened but was concerned for his girlfriend.He admitted he had been drinking but was not drunk.Judge Kelly told Merritt that he had no right to be in a hospital ward at 2.30am and disturbing other patients.“People are trying to sleep and you are carrying on like this. He may have felt he was in the right but this was no place or an argument,” he said.He ordered Merritt to do 60 hours community service in lieu of three months in prison.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comMAN ARRESTED AFTER GOING BERSERK IN GYNECOLOGY WARD was last modified: January 10th, 2012 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:BallybofeyDanny MerrittLetterkenny General Hospital
James Ward wins ESM Under90kgENGLISHMAN James Ward from Luton lifted the title of Europe’s Strongest Man Under 90kg in Letterkenny this weekend.“I’m totally elated and exhausted,” said an overwhelmed Ward. “I was very well aware of the stiff competition around me. These men are serious athletes and any one of them could have taken the title. To be Europe’s first Strongman Under 90kg is a huge honour. I’ll definitely be back next year to defend my title.”Breaking pain barriers with excrutiating lifting, pulling, dragging and carrying events Ward beat off stiff competition from runner up Shay Ryan who is Ireland’s reigning Under 90kg champion. The Wexford athlete had the chance to lift the title in the final event Stones of Strength but he couldn’t beat Ward with both lifting three out of five stones. “A spectacular event with massive shows of support from the North West” was how co-organiser Dave Warner of Renegade Strongman described the event. “I really want to bring this event back to Letterkenny and after this week, that is a strong possibility.”Nigel Drein of Motiv8 Fitness who was also responsible for bringing the event to Letterkenny congratulated the business people who invested in the international competition.“Without financial support from Letterkenny Town Council and our business partners we could not have staged the event. But we believe they got a return on investment with the event being broadcast on Setanta Sports and quite possibly Eurosport. A special word of thanks to our little mascots who performed their duties magnificently and to all the mums and dads who came along too.”Former World Strongman Darren Sadler acted as Head Referee. He says, “The organisation, professionalism and goodwill was spectacular. I expect Europe’s Strongest Man Under 90kg will be making a return to Letterkenny.” Gavn Redmont pulls the van in the Arm over Arm EventJAMES IS CROWNED EUROPE’S STRONGEST MAN IN LETTERKENNY was last modified: September 15th, 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:JAMES IS CROWNED EUROPE’S STRONGEST MAN IN LETTERKENNYletterkennyLondonluton
The striking creation of food artist FransGroenewald, titled South African CulinaryDelights, is one of the fundraisinginitiatives associated with the 2011World Chefs Tour.(Image: World Chefs Tour)MEDIA CONTACTS • Bill GallagherSouthern Sun communications director+27 11 510 7500Lyndon JafthaIt started in 1993, when World Chefs Tour founder and patron Bill Gallagher, together with hospitality group Southern Sun and roughly 100 chefs, raised around R500 000 (US$69 000) for hungry children.The second tour, which took place in 2003, involved 140 chefs and saw R1-million ($139 000) being raised.And now the 2011 tour – the third edition – hopes to raise over R5-million ($693 000) to sustainably feed children in need over the next five years.“It costs R10 ($1.40) a day to feed a child, and with R5-million we can feed 300 children every day for five years,” said Gallagher in a statement, adding that the money would be used to develop feeding schemes and supply them with food, rather than just be dished out.The culinary genius is one of South Africa’s most renowned chefs, and is honorary president of the South African Chefs Association (Saca) as well as honorary president of the World Association of Chefs Societies.Originally from the UK, he emigrated to South Africa in 1973. Since then he’s notched up a string of awards including four gold and two bronze medals as leader of Team SA at the 17th Culinary Olympics held in Germany in 1988, and the Fedhasa Hospitality Industry Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000.Gallagher has been with Southern Sun since his arrival in South Africa and also serves as the group’s director of communications and public relations.International cooperationSupported by diversified food services and distribution company Bidvest, accommodation sponsor Southern Sun, and others, the Bidvest World’s Chef’s Tour was launched in Johannesburg in May 2011.The event sees over 250 chefs, in teams from 44 countries, travelling around South Africa until 30 August, giving food demonstrations, hosting gala dinners and interacting with the country’s children.Participating countries include Australia; China; Wales; Democratic Republic of Congo; India; Nigeria; Kenya; Norway; South Tyrol; Tanzania; the US; and many more. The chefs have travelled at their own expense.Some 700 local chefs are also participating.The group can be seen in action in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Vaal, Mbombela in Mpumalanga province, East London, Cape Town and Durban. A comprehensive schedule is available on the website.Daily struggleTimes are tough for many and it is often a struggle to feed the family. Charities and individuals face daily challenges, and at the launch of the tour it was revealed that two and a half million children go to bed hungry every day in South Africa.Bidvest’s CE Brian Joffee said: “Bidvest sees this as a heart-rending catastrophe that demands response.” And what a response it is – the 2011 World Chef’s Tour is regarded as the biggest single fundraising event in the culinary world.Proceeds will be donated to a number of causes, such as the Akani Diepsloot Foundation, the African Children’s Feeding Scheme (ACFS) and the Meals on Wheels community services, which feeds 10-million South Africans every year.ACFS provides 21 000 children with milk or cheese and a peanut butter sandwich daily, while the Akani Diepsloot Foundation is an aftercare, preschool and crèche for 750 children during the week and 500 children on weekends, all from the impoverished settlement of Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg.Youngsters get a daily meal and take part in developmental activities including English literacy, reading, educational crafts, and games and sports. They are also given the opportunity to join clubs, such as drama or choir.The public can get involved by buying tickets for tour-related events, a chef’s hat costing R10 at the demonstrations, or seats or tables for the dinners.For those unable to attend any of the events, the tour’s official song “Sing Children Sing”, recorded for the 1993 tour and re-done in 2011 by local songbird PJ Powers, is available for just R10 by sending an SMS with the word “child” to 31755.Not just chefsIt is, however, not only chefs and sponsors that are involved in this project.Well-known South African culinary artist Frans Groenewald has painted South African Culinary Delights exclusively for the tour, and has made a limited number available for purchase as another way for people to help.Only 500 of these pieces of art, which colourfully illustrate the life of a chef, are available. Groenewald said that although he did not know of the tour when he was approached by Gallagher and former Saca president Martin Kobald, he considers it a pleasure and an honour to be involved with such a prestigious event.As most of his work is food related, Groenewald said it was easy to do a special commission for the project.The artist, who does charity pieces for the Stellenbosch SPCA and occasionally for Aids awareness and national cancer association Cansa, said: “My images are fun and uplifting, ideally suited for serious causes as they break the ice. My art also encapsulates the fun side of food.”Signed and numbered prints are selling for R499 ($69) unframed, and R999 ($138) framed. The original item will be auctioned at the official gala, taking place on 30 August at the Sandton Convention Centre. There will be auctions for canvas replicas at various events, and prints may also be purchased via the tour website.
A child with a mental disability reads at the official opening. (Image: SA Goodnews)A new skills development wing at the Bizweni Centre for Disabled Children, in Somerset West, will serve those at the school who need specialised care and stimulation.The new unit will cater for 30 children between the ages of 12 and 18. It was officially opened in March 2016.“Ideally, we want to keep stimulating these children with social, educational and physical learning opportunities as they grow up so that they are able to improve in all areas and ultimately enjoy the best possible quality of life,” said Vicky Hinrichsen, the centre’s project manager.CLASSROOMSThe new unit consists of two large classrooms, toilets with wheelchair access, a patio for outdoor activities and a new office.An extension to the existing building, it cost more than R2-million was completed by Rotary Club of Helderberg in partnership with Peninsula Beverages, the local bottler and distributor of The Coca-Cola Company products in Western and Northern Cape; Rotary Club of Newlands; and several large and small sponsors.“Rotary International president Ravi Ravindran, at the beginning of his tenure, asked Rotarians to be a ‘Gift to the World’ and to ensure the gifts they provide are not just given as hand-outs, but are offered with love and respect,” Geraldine Nicol, the district governor of Rotary District 9350, said at the official opening.“Today we celebrate the opening of the extension to the Bizweni Centre for Disabled Children, a gift given with much love and respect by the Rotary Club of Helderberg together with our grateful thanks to the donors, which include individuals, sister Rotary Clubs, certain charitable trusts and Peninsula Beverages, all of whom helped turn the impossible dream into a reality.”At the centre, children learn basic computer skills, gardening, cooking and cleaning skills as well as how to write.BIZWENIBizweni has been running for 18 years and has 56 children, all of whom have physical, intellectual or developmental disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome.Most of them come from homes where services such as individualised occupational, speech and remedial therapy are increasingly difficult to obtain. For many of the children, placement at the appropriate special needs schools is not a possibility.The physical well-being of children at Bizweni is also critical and they are encouraged to develop their muscle strength and mobility under the guidance of carers.“The staff at Bizweni are true heroes for bringing such joy into the lives of these children each day,” said John Joubert, the Peninsular Beverages commercial director. “We are thankful for the opportunity to partner with Bizweni and Rotary Club of Helderberg to complete our 28th brick and mortar project which will ultimately ensure more children with disabilities are able to flourish.”PLAY YOUR PARTAre you playing your part to help improve the lives of the people around you or the environment?
