Baptist Prelate Wants Religious Leaders Address ‘Political Tension’

first_imgRev. Dr. Samuel B. Reeves, Jr. Pastor PBCReverend Samuel B. Reeves Jr., Senior Pastor of the Providence Baptist Church, has called on the leadership of the Liberia Council of Churches (LCC), Christians and Religious organizations to lead a campaign that would ease the current ‘political tension,’ which he said does not augur well for the country in the wake of the planned June 7 ‘peaceful protest.’The Baptist Prelate said the dialogue, which should be held between the protest organizers and the government, will help calm the ongoing ‘political tension’ that is gradually degenerating with the use of threatening statements, specifically the emergence of ex-rebel generals from the country’s disbanded warring factions.Rev. Reeves, who served as vice standard bearer in the 2017 presidential bid of former Central Bank governor, Joseph Mills Jones, said with the current wave of a volatile political environment between the opposition and the government, it would be necessary to hold a dialogue with all parties to ease the rising tension.“Although it is the constitutional right all Liberians to protest whenever they feel hurt by certain government policy, they should remember the environment of the country’s recent past to avoid the re-occurrence, because those are things that have the propensity to revert the gains made over the years,” he warned.Reeves said that the organizers of the planned protest may have a good intent, “but I fear that it would end up in a violent manner if the necessary mechanisms are not put into place.”He said that the protest, if not implemented in an atmosphere of civility, will never solve Liberia’s problems.“However, a dialogue is always the surest way to mitigating the needed challenges confronting the country with the involvement of both the government and the opposition,” Rev. Reeves said.At the same time, Rev. Reeves commended the government for condemning recent statements attributed to ex-rebel generals. According to him, it was repulsive on the part of the ex-rebel fighters to have ordered the arrest of a sitting lawmaker when they have no constitutional authority whatsoever to do so.“Gone are the days for rebels to intimidate peaceful citizens,” Rev. Reeves added, urging Liberians to condemn their actions in this new dispensation.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Haas breezes to repeat title at Memphis

first_img“I’m probably playing some of my best tennis,” Haas said. “It’s hard to compare to where I was four or five years ago when I had my highest ranking.” Roddick, trying to win his second Memphis title, didn’t come close to breaking serve. Haas gave up only seven points off his serve in the final, and two of those were double-faults. “I guess it is quite a good record,” Haas said. “I’ve been serving well. Every time I get my first serve in … I feel like I’m dictating play. Against players like these, you have to really try to be solid on your service games.” The German won in 61 minutes, and that might have helped his travel plans. He needed to fly to the United Arab Emirates for his Tuesday match in Dubai. “Everything was coming easy to him, and everything was a little bit of a struggle for me,” Roddick said. “That’s not a good combination for me.” MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Tommy Haas knew he had been playing well this year. Winning a tournament without facing one break point? That surprised even himself. He beat Andy Roddick 6-3, 6-2 Sunday to retain his title in the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships. The German completed a week in which he didn’t face a break point in 47 games. Haas won his sixth consecutive final and 11th title overall. He also won in Memphis in 1999 and is only the second three-time winner of this event. Jimmy Connors, now Roddick’s coach, won in 1978, 1979, 1983 and 1984. center_img Haas, ranked No. 9 entering the tournament, has not lost a final since Andre Agassi beat him in Rome in May 2002. This is the first time Haas has won titles in consecutive seasons, and he improved his record in finals to 11-9. Roddick, who will be ranked No. 3, had won three of the previous four matches against Haas – all on hardcourts. The American hadn’t played in a final since losing the U.S. Open last September to Roger Federer or won a title since Cincinnati last August. But Haas improved to 6-3 against Roddick and couldn’t have played much better. He won all but one of his 25 first-serve points. He was playing so sharply this week that his text messages with coach Thomas Hogstedt before the match Sunday didn’t involve anything to do with tennis. “He wants to make sure I get on that plane,” Haas said. Haas played so well that Roddick’s lone point off the German’s serve through his first three service games was a double-fault, and Roddick’s best chance to break Haas came in the second game of the second set. The German hit a forehand long to let Roddick pull within 40-30. Roddick then hit a backhand long, and Haas broke in each of his next two service games. “He just out-played me today,” Roddick said. “I shot myself in the foot by playing sloppy early. He just got the momentum and went with it.” ROTTERDAM, Netherlands – Unseeded Mikhail Youzhny easily beat third-seeded Ivan Ljubicic 6-2, 6-4 to win the ABN Amro title. Youzhny broke his Croatian opponent twice in the first set, and then again in the fifth game of the second set. The Russian, appearing in his fifth ATP final, beat Ljubicic for the first time in six tries. It was Youzhny’s third career title. The eighth-ranked Ljubicic, who turns 28 next month, was appearing in his third final of the season after winning at Doha, Qatar, and losing to Marcos Baghdatis at Zagreb, Croatia. BOGOTA, Colombia – Roberta Vinci won the Copa Colsanitas when top-seeded Tathiana Garbin retired in the third set because of a digestive problem. Garbin led 7-6 (5), 4-6, 3-0 in the all-Italian final when she withdrew on the advice of a doctor after her second medical consultation of the day. “I felt sick since Saturday night,” Garbin said. “I got better on Sunday morning but in the second set, when I was winning 3-0, the problem came back. I fought to try and finish the match but it was impossible.” Vinci earned $25,850 for her first WTA Tour title. BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Argentine Juan Monaco beat Alessio Di Mauro of Italy 6-1, 6-2 for his first ATP title and delighted a capacity crowd on clay at the Copa Telmex. Monaco, 22, a fifth-year pro whose only other final appearance came at Casablanca in 2005, finished off the victory in 63 minutes. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Everton are Premier League top four contenders, claims former boss

first_imgFormer Everton manager Joe Royle believes Roberto Martinez can lead the Toffees to a fourth-placed Premier League finish this season.Everton currently sit fifth in the table having beaten Manchester City and face arch-rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on Sunday, live exclusively on talkSPORT.And Royle thinks that if his former side can stay injury free and have a consistent starting XI, then Everton will be realistic challengers for the fourth Champions League place.“If we can get a settled side – and I’m sure the manager has in mind what his best side is at the moment and what he would like to play – I think we have a great chance of challenging this year (for the top four),” Royle, who also played for Everton, told Drivetime.“I looked at the start we had which included Southampton away, Man City, Spurs away, Chelsea – it looked a hard start.“If you’d had told me at the start of the season that we were going to be fifth at this stage, I would gladly have accepted that.”last_img read more


first_imgFianna Fáil Spokesperson on Children Charlie McConalogue has called for the publication of legislation to tackle barriers to adoption before the Dáil summer recess.The Inishowen TD says such legislation can then be examined and debated ahead of the promised Referendum on Children’s Rights in the autumn.Questioning the Minister for Children in the Dáil this week, Deputy McConalogue said the Government has no reason to continue to delay the publication of this non-contentious piece of legislation. “The Government has promised there will be a referendum on children’s rights this autumn and that new legislation tackling barriers to adoption will go alongside this. If that is the case, why won’t the Minister publish the adoption legislation now so that enough time is allocated to tease out the details of what is involved?”“We saw what happened with the two referenda in October when the Government failed to communicate properly with voters and didn’t allocate enough time for a full debate on the issues involved.“New adoption legislation is a crucial component to strengthening the rights of vulnerable children in this country and the earlier it is published, the more time we will have to tease out the issues and ensure it passes in the autumn.“Fianna Fáil published legislation in June last year to remove the barriers to adoption for children born to married parents. This would have allowed the Government to hold a referendum alongside the Presidential election last October to immediately allow for the adoption of hundreds of children who are currently in care,” he said. He added it is almost a year since this Bill was debated in the Dáil but there is still no sign of the Governments legislation, and hundreds of children have spent another year waiting for the right to be adopted.“I believe it is well within the Governments capabilities to publish this legislation soon, having had nearly 15 months to work on it. It is disappointing that the Minister is refusing to budge on this matter.“By publishing the legislation this summer, it can be examined at the Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children and we can secure all party agreement and public support for it before the Referendum campaign begins in the autumn,” said Deputy McConalogue.MCCONALOGUE CALLS FOR PUBLICATION OF ADOPTION LEGISLATION was last modified: May 19th, 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)last_img read more

TV and sweet tubs stolen in spate of Letterkenny burglaries

first_imgThree homes were targetted in a spate of burglaries in a residential area of Letterkenny last weekend.An investigation is underway into two burglaries and one attempted burglary in the Meadowbank area on Long Lane between Saturday and Sunday last. A Smart TV and nine sweet tubs were reportedly stolen from one home.Gardaí are investigating the possibility that the burglaries occurred consecutively. The first break-in occurred sometime between 10pm on Saturday night (23rd Nov) and 7.50am on Sunday morning (24th Nov).Two front windows were smashed at the Meadowbank home.
