New Radio Station Opens in Ganta

first_imgGanta, the commercial hub of Nimba County, has once again been blessed with a new development package, this time with a new radio station called Radio Slehtorwon (a Dan expression meaning ‘for the sake of our land’Radio Slehtorwon is situated directly opposite Radio Kagheamahn (RKFM), using the Lone Star Cell relay tower in Blagaypa, on the outskirts of Ganta.The launch of the station, according to its management, comes in the wake of the holding of the 2017 presidential and legislative elections. But the idea that birthed the station, the management said, is to boost communications in the commercially booming city.The birth of Radio Slehtorwon, which was spearheaded by the political movement of businessman turned politician Benoni Urey’s All Liberian Party (ALP), now brings to four the number of radio stations in the community. During the test transmission on Saturday, June 11, the local chairperson of ALP, Bob Yini, said the station is open to all, regardless of political affiliation.According to Mr. Yini, the party decided to open the station to serve as its mouthpiece, as well as for members of other political parties.The range of Radio Slehtowon’s coverage has not been established, neither has it been assigned a frequency, but its reception nonetheless goes up to 20 kilometers from Ganta. The financier of Radio Slehtorwon, Mr. Urey, began his political movement in Nimba County in 2013 with the launch of a controversial loan program, which nearly ended in dispute, following the failure of the movement to provide the promised loans on time. The movement ended up asking loan seekers to take ID cards that cost about L$600.The controversy over the loan program brought Mr. Urey’s political interest in Nimba County to near total disrepute, as those who were compelled to take the ID cards were eventually disqualified from securing the promised loan.Despite the failure of the loan scheme, the ALP Nimba County Chapter has constructed some culverts in most of the alleys in Ganta, thereby enhancing free movement of goods and services across the city.The coming of the new radio station is likely to reawaken ALP’s popularity in the county, as it will serve as a medium to effectively communicate its messages thereby giving the party much needed political relevance in the area.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Albouystown/Charlestown residents agree to pay fee

first_imgGarbage collection fee consultation…call for reassessment of collection daysAs City Hall prepares to implement a fee for the collection of household garbage, residents of the Georgetown wards of Albouystown and Charlestown, represented by only six persons who attended the consultation, have signalled their support for the initiative, but have proposed a reassessment of the days when garbage would be collected in their wards.Albouystown/Charlestown Councillors with the city’s Solid Waste DirectorThe City’s Solid Waste Director, Walter Narine, hosted the penultimate consultation at the Albouystown Health Centre before the recommendation is taken to the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) for decision.The consultation exercise was ordered by Mayor Patricia Chase-Green. Narine told the residents that approximately $1 million is expended each month to collect garbage in the Albouystown/Charlestown area, with $787 being the average cost to remove one bin.He told the six residents that they should do the math, adding that the rates and taxes have not increased since 1994. He stated that the City is ready to further improve its service being delivered to the residents, but noted that it cannot be done without the help of the residents.The six residents, inclusive of Councillor Carolyn Fraser, at the consultationThe residents were informed that City Hall is not going to be imposing a garbage collection fee, and that the consultation is for them to provide a feedback and suggestion to improve garbage collection in the City.The handful of residents explained that instead of collecting garbage two days per week in their area, City Hall should re-evaluate and collect one day, since many of the bins are half empty when collection day comes around. In addition to that, they proposed that the two days’ collection commence in November and run to December, when there is heightened cleaning activities for the holiday season.In relation to the fee, five of the residents noted that $200 weekly per household is a reasonable charge, while one elderly gentleman proposed $100.However, Mayor Chase-Green took into account the number of residents, and informed them that such a small number is not sufficient for making such a decision, but she noted that their suggestions would be taken into account.The residents also complained about persons living in the community dumping faeces ion the alleyways and other unsanitary materials in the drains, resulting in the creation of health hazards. They suggest that action be taken against those defaulting residents.The aim of the fee implementation is to broaden the Council’s revenue base so that it can meet its expenses. The Council’s two garbage contractors — Puran Brothers Disposal and Cevons Waste Management — withdrew their services on July 30, 2017 as City Hall’s debts had risen to the multi-million-dollar range.According to the companies, the issue of non-payment has been a long-standing one, with many debts going as far back as 2015.However, they had resumed collection after the municipality approached Central Government through the Communities Ministry for a bailout of $475,635,245 to settle the city’s debt to Puran Brothers, Cevons, and another company.The bailout was granted, and Central Government decided to pick up the tab until December 31, after which the M&CC would step in. The Council is expected by the end of June to procure two new garbage trucks to aid in garbage collection.The final consultation will be today at the Kitty Market area at 18:00hrs.last_img read more

Real Madrid legend announces his retirement from football

first_img1 Raul is to retire from football next month after finishing the current season with the New York Cosmos.The former Spain striker, 38, joined the Cosmos of the North American Soccer League, a level below Major League Soccer, in December but has decided to call it a day after a single campaign.“When I signed for the New York Cosmos in December, I said I would evaluate how I felt towards the end of the year and assess whether I would continue to play,” he said.“My decision is to retire from playing at the end of this season. I am fully focused on finishing the season strong and helping the New York Cosmos win the NASL Championship. In the coming months I will decide the next step in my career.“Playing soccer has been part of my life for so long and the decision to retire is not an easy one but I believe it is the right time.“I’m thankful to everyone who has supported me throughout my career and I look forward to playing my final games with the New York Cosmos over the coming weeks.”Raul enjoyed a glittering career in his homeland, spending 16 years with Real Madrid during which time he won six La Liga titles, three Champions League titles and six Spanish Super Cups, before later spells with Schalke and Al-Sadd Sports Club. He also scored 44 goals in 102 appearances for Spain.Cosmos head coach Giovanni Savarese said: “Raul is one of the world’s most iconic players. I knew when we signed him what he would bring on pitch but his knowledge, passion, professionalism and commitment has exceeded my expectations.“In less than a year, Raul has become a big part of the team and he will always remain part of the Cosmos family.”The Cosmos have already punched their ticket to the NASL post-season by finishing top of the standings in the spring season. They sit third in the fall season standings and top in the combined standings. Raul last_img read more

MOVILLE GETS READY FOR BEATLESFEST

first_imgThere is a sense of anticipation in the sleepy, idyllic, Donegal town of Moville as they await the 9th annual BeatlesFest on the Lough this weekend.It’s Ireland’s only annual festival of the music of John, Paul, George and Ringo. Due to its success in previous years it will take place over four days for the first time rather than three.Coming over again from Devon will be Beatles Road manager, PR guy and talent scout, Tony Bramwell who was a childhood friend of Paul McCartney and George Harrison. Tony is a US Hall of Fame member himself for his work as head of Apple Films and Polydor Records when he had the Bee Gees, The Jam, Roxy Music and Slade in his stable, for his role in charge of the music for Grease and Saturday Night Fever, when he used the Bee Gees and for responsibility for the music in five of the Bond films, including Live and Let Die done by Paul McCartney. Tony ‘s favourite tipple is Guinness and his favourite Comedy, Father Ted and this will be his 5th BeatlesFest on the Lough. A couple of weeks before his first one he was in Nashville with Paul McCartney who asked him to come to Toronto with him as well. “I can’t Paul” said Tony. “I’m doing the BeatlesFest in Moville that weekend”. He said that Moville is the quaintest of the BeatlesFests that he goes to and would like to retire there.Tony knows most people in the industry, both in the Sixties and now. He met Elvis with the Beatles, knows Bob Dylan very well and is a close friend of Bruce Springsteen.
