The Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of the global multinational corporation, Coca-Cola Company, Alexander B. Cummings, Jr., has assured Liberians that the Liberia Coca-Cola Bottling Company (LCCBC) will continue to invest in Liberia and remain operational during this difficult times owing to the outbreak of the Ebola pandemic in the country.Mr. Cummings, who flew into Monrovia last Friday on a private jet, gave the assurance at a press conference held at the LCCBC production plant in Paynesville shortly after his arrival.“We felt it is important to visit Liberia during this difficult period to show support and solidarity”, said Mr. Cummings, who headed a high powered seven-man Coca-Cola delegation.The Liberian-born Coca-Cola top executive said “as a Liberian and relatively successful, if we expect others to help us, we must take the lead. That is why we are here, to say CoCa-Cola shares the concern of Liberia and other countries hit by the Ebola Virus Disease”.Cummings who has work for Coca-Cola Company in many capacities since 1997, said though Coca-Cola business in Liberia is down by 60%, due to the Ebola crisis, the company is still keeping its workforce intact and is not scaling down or laying-off any of its staff members.Mr. Cummings announced further Coca-Cola’s plan to open a second production line worth about US$5 million dollars for the production of different kinds of assorted fruit juices and bottled water in Liberia.Moreover, Mr. Cummings said that as part of its social corporate responsibilities, the LCCBC is constructing a modern science and technology school at the cost of US$1.2 million in the Duport Road community.“We want to assure the Liberian government and people that Coca-Cola will remain operational in Liberia and will do everything possible to help the country during this difficult period,” told the press conference. Other members of the Coca-Cola delegation to Liberia included: Alfonso Bosch, Chief Executive Officer, Equatorial Coca-Cola Bottling Company (ECCBC), Sierra Leone; Curt Ferguson, President, Coca-Cola Middle East and North Africa; Alfonso L. Daurella, Chairman ECCBC, Sergio Codonyer, Public Affairs and Communication Director (ECCBC) and Geert Bross, General Manager North Africa Region.The Coca-Cola Executive Vice President also asserted that LCCBC is playing very important role in the fight against Ebola scourge. “We will continue to help in the fight against Ebola until it is finally kicked out of Liberia and West Africa”, he said.Filling the Daily Observer in on LCCBC’s donation to the fight against the Ebola malady in Liberia, Victor Bostor George, Public Affairs and Communication Manager at the LCCBC said, 300 Ebola kits and 160 empty gallons were given to household in the immediate environment of the company.Additionally, George said, 1,900 cases of water bottles were given to Ebola Treatment Units, US$2,000 was given to the Ebola Trust Fund, 30 thermometers to the Ebola Task Force along with US$48,000 worth of anti-ebola materials.George disclosed that two 40-foot containers containing more than US$200,000 worth of anti-ebola materials are expected in the country to be donated towards the fight against Ebola.Established in 1949, the company was known as the United States Trading Company (USTC) but changed name in 2005 to the Liberia Coca-Cola Bottling Company (LCCBC). About 190 Liberians are in the employ of the LCCBC.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Ganta, 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)
Garbage 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.

1 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

There 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. He will be giving a talk, taking questions and talking about his time with the Beatles with festival-goers.American, Michael Thomas will open up the festival in Annie’s Bar on Thursday night which is Come Together Night. This will be followed by It’s Getting Better night on Friday, a Hard Day’s Night on Saturday and Hello Goodbye night on Sunday. In between will be Here Comes the Sun afternoon on Saturday and Strawberry Fields afternoon on Sunday.Playing officially for the first time will be Belfast duo, The Plasticine Porters who turned up last year just wanting to play anywhere and anytime. They played the Open Mics and in the breaks in the acts of others and after they finished. After they went down so well they have their own gigs this year. Said BeatlesFest organiser, Gerry McLaughlin “We are expecting this to be the biggest and best BeatlesFest we have had. We are asking people to wear Sixties Gear. If anyone wants to play there are Open Mics. If you missed the Sixties come to Moville this weekend. The BeatlesFest takes place from July 30th to August 2nd.MOVILLE GETS READY FOR BEATLESFEST was last modified: July 29th, 2015 by John2Share 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:beatlesfestdonegalfestivalmoville
