Inspired by Political Events, A Show Of Unity In Red Bank

first_imgBy John Burton|RED BANK – It wasn’t just women who came to a rally at Riverside Gardens Park last Saturday.“More than 50 percent of our population is women,” said Errol Logan, a Bound Brook resident who traveled to Red Bank last Saturday to participate in the gathering. “So, it’s important to show our support for women and their issues. “Women’s rights are human rights,” Logan said.Logan was one of what organizers estimated were roughly 500 people – men and women from a wide range of ages, many with young children in tow – who gathered at the borough’s Riverside Gardens Park on the afternoon of Jan. 21.The intent of the rally, organized by the recently formed Greater Red Bank Women’s Initiative, was to show solidarity with the worldwide series of marches and rallies taking place that day. Those marches, initially in support of women’s issues, also came to include concerns over the environment, civil liberties and immigrant rights in light of comments made by President Donald J. Trump leading up to the election and since taking the oath of office on Jan. 20. Many of the participants were wearing the same pink hats visible at the events in New York City, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere. They held signs expressing their views and concerns.The Red Bank event, according to one of the organizers, Ellen Herman, was intended as a nonpartisan expression in the spirit of Red Bank’s tradition of fostering diversity and inclusion. But, as fellow organizer Suellen Sims said in her remarks to the crowd later that afternoon, “That diversity is always an ephemeral quality that can be extinguished too early.” Naulty has “major concerns about this administration’s changes to environmental regulations” and stressed how important it is to “protect this world and all who live in it.”Rubina Tareen, a Muslim who traveled from Pennsylvania to participate in the rally, told the gathering she came to combat fear-mongering. “We gather here today to meet ignorance with understanding,” she said.Red Bank resident Barbara Boas said she attended Saturday’s rally because she was concerned about the direction the nation could be taking with the new administration, especially concerning public education. “It’s not a protest,” she maintained about the day’s activities, “but an announcement that we are here and we’re not going anywhere.”“I felt strongly enough and wanted to be a part of something,” said Nicole Korman, Howell, who came with her 2-year-old son, Logan. “Clearly, something has to be done to keep our ideals.”“The real question,” asked Herman, “is where do we go from here?”“I truly believe the antidote is to get involved,” Sims said.Tim McLoone, the local restaurateur and musician who is active on many community fronts, served as the event’s M.C. and said he believed there is always something to be done. “If you can’t change the wind,” he reminded the crowd, “you can at least adjust your sails.”Lynn Cremona, Neptune, vowed to stay active and offered a warning. “If they thought we were uppity feminists before,” she said, “watch the next four years.” Sims said the day after Trump’s election it was important to reaffirm the shared beliefs of many in attendance. Of the treatment of the immigrant population everywhere, she asked, “Should they be tarnished as ‘the other’?”Several hundred people gathered at Red Bank’s Riverside Gardens Park on Saturday afternoon in a show of unity.

You set the team up.“He’s not sure of his XI, he doesn’t know.

If the ball hits you on the Premier League badge or below, it’s your arm and therefore a handball.We’re almost in November and no one seems any wiser to how VAR is being used.I want VAR technology to work, I really do. When it was brought in, we were told it would provide “minimum interference, maximum benefit”.They want trust between the ref and VAR but, come on, it’s just not being used properly.You will not see a clearer penalty than when Watford’s Gerard Deulofeu was brought down by Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen.How professional referees looking at that incident in real time, and then in slow-motion, don’t think that is a penalty is beyond me.Jake Lambourne21 Oct 2019, 9:07 amROY KEANE has told Manchester United there is a simple solution to their goalscoring problems – sign Harry Kane.United have been struggling for goals this season after the club took the decision to sell Romelu Lukaka to Inter Milan.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s have scored just ten goals in nine Premier League matches this season having left themselves short of options up front.United legend Keane is in no doubt what his former club have to do if they want to solve the problem and return to the top table – break the bank to sign Kane from Tottenham.And he says the current mess Spurs find themselves in this season gives them the ideal opportunity to snatch the England captain from the North London club.Keane told Sky Sports: “Just go and get Harry Kane from Spurs, easy. You look at me as though I’m not being serious. Go and buy him.“He scores 25 goals a season with his eyes shut. They’re in disarray, go get him.”Adam Storer21 Oct 2019, 8:07 amTOTTENHAM have struggled to get results of late after their controversial draw against Watford extended their winless run to three matches.But defender Toby Alderweireld is remaining positive ahead of a massive clash against Liverpool next weekend.As reported by the Mirror, the Belgian said: “You can see it two ways.

Hire car driver found hanging after being locked out of house

first_imgA hire car driver, who was refused entry into his home because he was drunk, allegedly ended his life with a rope.On Thursday morning, the lifeless body of Mahendra Sewnarine was found hanging by the neck from a rope suspended from a support beam under the house.Mahendra SewnarineThe 25-year-old taxi driver on Number 79 Corriverton, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) got home at 00:01h on Thursday morning, reportedly intoxicated. That is according to his common-law wife Nandanie Kokil.

She told this publication that, on some occasions, he would remain in the hammock and sleep and other times when he is allowed into the house, he would get something to eat and then go to bed. “Because of how he does behave sometimes, I don’t open the door and he would sleep in the hammock,” she said.According to the 23-year-old widow, on several occasions, Sewnarine threaded to take his own life. “When he sober up the next day, I would tell him to stop drinking… Sometimes when he drunk he would say that he gon kill himself, but when we talking the next day, I would tell him to stop drinking, if he know rum will bring problem,” the grieving woman said.Relatives of Sewnarine who reside at Number 69 Village – where he lived previously – have related that on many occasions after working, the now dead man would be seen drinking and when he goes home, he preferred to stay outside in a hammock.Kokil said her husband left home at about 17:00h on Wednesday to wash his car and returned seven hours later intoxicated.He leaves to mourn his wife, mother, father and sister.

PYJ’s Expulsion from Nimba Caucus Lifted

first_imgThe Nimba County 53rd Legislative Caucus has lifted the expulsion of Senator Prince Y. Johnson from the County lawmaking body.Speaking during the induction ceremony of Nimba Superintendent, Mr. Fohn Zuaglay, Nimba Caucus Chair, Senator Thomas Grupee, announced that Sen. Johnson is being accepted back into the caucus as an advisor.Sen. Grupee’s remarks came after outgoing Supt. Dagadu acknowledged to the new administration that one of the challenges facing the county is the lack of unity among the citizens of Nimba.The outgoing Superintendent’s statement was soon buttressed by Internal Affairs Minister Morris Dukuly, who said during the installation address, “If Nimba united, it would be a more powerful county than the remaining 14 counties of Liberia.”Sen. Johnson, who did not say whether he agreed or disagreed, told Nimbaians at the ceremony that his removal from the caucus was “illegal and undemocratic.”He also said at the time of his removal few months ago, the Caucus insulted him through the media saying that he was “mentally ill and not fit to be part of them” and cautioned the caucus to reconsider their decision to lift the “so-called expulsion if they feel the need to seek medical advice concerning his senses.”Senator Prince Johnson previously served as the Caucus Chairman until Sen. Thomas Grupee from his NUDP party ‘took’ the chairmanship. A move Sen. Grupee said was done to allow Sen. Johnson time to prepare for the 2014 senatorial election.Last year, Sen.

first_imgRevocation of leases…awards $6.5M in damages, costsFive rice farmers who sued the State over the cancellation of their leases by the Mahaica Maichony Abary/Agriculture Development Authority (MMA/ADA) have been vindicated by the High Court.Farmers back in 2017 protesting increases in land rental fees by the MMA/ADAIt was the familiar court battle between former Attorney General Anil Nandlall and his successor, Basil Williams, who was named as a respondent on behalf of the State. In the court ruling handed down by Justice Priya Seenarine-Beharry, farmer Sonita Bristol of West Coast Berbice (WCB) was awarded $1 million as damages and $300,000 in costs.The court ruled that the revocation of her lease was null and void and granted injunctions preventing the MMA/ADA from moving against her land. It also ordered the third named respondent to give up the land.Bristol, whose land was located south of the MMA main canal in Number 40 Village, West Coast Berbice, claimed in her affidavit that she learnt of her lease being cancelled without notice on March 18, 2016, through a notice in the newspaper. She subsequently learned that her land was occupied by Nigel Gordon, the third named respondent in her claim.Meanwhile, a similar ruling was made in the case of Chalyn Ann McKalman, who took Attorney General Basil Williams, on behalf of the State, the MMA/ADA and Mark and Joseph Ross to court over her land.In the cases of Sharon Solomon, Fariel Johnson and Doreen Monah, they were also awarded $1 million in damages and $300,000 in costs. Monah, in particular, argued in her affidavit that after being dispossessed of her land by the MMA/ADA, it was awarded to other people.In Solomon’s affidavit, she detailed that before her lease was revoked, her land was occupied by the Seafield Co-op, which rented her land to a farmer known as “Big bull”. This farmer, the affidavit states, was forcefully removed from said land by the Co-op, which instead of giving it to her, rented it to the fourth named respondent, Lincoln Samaroo.Besides awarding them their damages and costs, the court also issued an injunction restraining MMA/ADA from interfering with the farmers’ land.It was only in 2015 that another set of farmers – Phillip Johnson, Rupert Blackman and Rawle Miller – had filed legal action against the MMA/ADA, challenging the cancellation of State land leases in the rear of Seafield, West Coast Berbice.The farmers had claimed that the leases were granted by former President Donald Ramotar and only the Head of State has the right to make such a cancellation.After months of hearing, former Chief Justice Ian Chang in February of 2016 quashed the cancellation of the leases in favour of the farmers.However, the farmers said they were subsequently informed by General Manager of MMA/ADA Aubrey Charles that President Granger has cancelled their leases. Besides their leases being revoked, farmers also had to deal with land rental fee increases.last_img read more
