Patrick hoping to make ‘killer’ moves in transfer window

Posted on by

first_imgCoach of promoted Maverley-Hughenden Anthony Patrick is hoping to add some ‘killer’ players to the team for the new year. Patrick was hired to replace Lijyasu Simms three weeks ago. At that point, Maverley-Hughenden were flirting with relegation in tenth position on 13 points from 14 games. Three games later, they have improved to seventh position on 20 points from 17 games. Since Patrick, who saved Waterhouse from relegation last term, crossed the road to neighbouring Maverley, the team has won twice and drawn once. “We are looking to add some young players to the squad during the upcoming January transfer window,” Patrick told The Gleaner following his team’s 1-1 draw against Harbour View on Wednesday in the final round for this year. “We want to have some ‘killer’ players coming from the bench. The plan is to add young quality players in all areas. We have quality players, but it is important to have a strong bench,” he informed. Patrick said that on arrival at Maverley, he told the players that the plan was to end the second round with at least 17 more points. “I told the players that we want to aim for at least 17 points from eight games, and we have achieved seven in three games. So, with five more games remaining in the second round, we are on target,” Patrick, who is also coach of St Catherine High in the Manning Cup schoolboy competition, added. When quizzed as to the difference in the team, he responded: “It is about self-belief. The players believe in me and I believe in them. I will continue to instill confidence in the players. The work ethic of the team is stepping up. However, we don’t want to push ourselves too much at this point.” Maverley-Hughenden will next face second-place-Tivoli Gardens (32 points) on January 4. “We will have more time to prepare for the next game against Tivoli and be ready for them,” Patrick concluded.

‘Judges Retire in Abject Poverty, Disgrace’

Posted on by

first_imgJudge Roosevelt Willie of Criminal Court ‘A’Judge Willie AlarmsJudge Roosevelt Willie, the president of the National Association of Trial Judges of Liberia (NATJL), said on yesterday that the continued denial by the government to pay retirement pension and benefit to judges has left most of them who have retired to live in abject poverty and disgrace.Willie, also Resident Judge of Criminal Court ‘A’ at the Temple of Justice, delivered his charge yesterday during the opening of Criminal Courts, A, B, C, D and wondered aloud, “It is very disheartening and frustrating for professionals like us to serve our country for all our lifetime and after reaching the retirement age of 70, live in abject poverty and disgrace.”Willie’s assertion comes just days after another retired Associate Justice Gladys K. Johnson sued the government for refusing to pay her legal and factual pensions and benefits, since August 2016, up to and including the filing date of her Petition of Writ of Mandamus before the Supreme Court.Mandamus is a “Special proceeding to obtain a writ requiring the respondents to perform an official duty.”Speaking to his audience that included Chief Justice Francis Saye Korkpor, judges, lawyers as well as party litigants, Willie explained that once a judge was to be retired his or her allowances cease to exist.“The monthly allowances of US$5,000 for judges and US$2,000 for magistrates and the 135 or 40 gallons of fuel as well as the quarterly scratch cards (GSM) and some funds for entertainment, including vehicles are all cut-off  by the government,” the criminal court judge disclosed.The NATJL president was frank yesterday to inform his audience that judges were receiving Liberian dollar LD$7,500 as monthly retirement benefits, likewise magistrates were taking LD$4,000, which is 50% of their take-home pay.Explaining the ordeal of some judges, Willie said, Judge William Ware, who was retired few years back, could not live on the LD$7,500 monthly retirement benefit with his family, and because of that stressful situation he died.“During his period of sickness, it was the association that was catering to his medical bills, even until he died,” the criminal court judge recollected.He also explained that another retired Judge, Friday Nah of the Debt Court in Sinoe County, has suffered from stroke and, because of the poor retirement benefits, the NATJL was also caring for his welfare.Besides Nah, Willie said, Judge Amy Musu Jones is also sick and cannot even walk and that the association is also caring for her wellbeing and welfare.To ensure that judges get their just retirement benefits, Willie told the gathering about their engagement with the Legislative and Executive Branches to see reason to enact the appropriate laws in that direction.“But, our plight for retirement benefits over the years continue to fall on deaf ears and have yielded no fruitful results,” the criminal court judge declared.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgNineteen-year-old teens Leon Gittens of East Ruimveldt, Georgetown and Akacie Primo of Kaneville, East Bank Demerara appeared on Tuesday before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan to answer an allegation that they had attempted to steal an undercover Policeman’s cellphone.The duo both denied the joint charge of attempted robbery, which alleged that on December 7, 2018 at Avenue of the Republic, Georgetown, they attempted to rob Julius Bowlin of his cellphone, valued $80,000.Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield objected to either accused being placed on bail by citing the seriousness and prevalence of the charge.The prosecution’s case is that on the day in question, Primo, a labourer, snatched the phone from the Policeman’s hand while he was in company of other Policemen; and Gittens, a block-maker, was heard in a loud voice instructing Primo to commit the crime.They were each placed on $15,000 bail, and ordered to report to the Brickdam Police Station every Monday and Friday as a condition of bail.

NAACP still alive and going strong in valley

Posted on by

first_imgLANCASTER – Rumors of the demise of the Antelope Valley branch of the NAACP weren’t just greatly exaggerated – they’re altogether untrue. That’s according to Celeste Eckley, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s local branch president, speaking at a recent press conference at Kemetic Preparatory School in Lancaster. The announcement that the chapter is alive and well came after local NAACP officials learned individuals acting on their own were raising money and recruiting members independently, saying that the branch no longer exists. Eckley said it was unclear who was collecting donations and where the money went. “The purpose of this is to enlighten the community that we’re alive and well,” Eckley said, noting that the branch has remained an active force in the community since its 1954 inception. The branch’s inaugural president, Lois Patton, remains involved, too, Eckley said. The Antelope Valley branch covers all of Northern Los Angeles County west of Interstate 5 and parts of Southern Kern County. The Branch boasts more than 150 members and receives each week five to 10 complaints alleging discrimination. “We want to get people involved, but we want people to get involved in the right way,” Eckley said. “We don’t want people out there doing there own thing.” Eckley said the NAACP encourages people of all races and ethnicities to join. The organization is committed to defending all Americans against discrimination based on race, religion, gender, age or physical disabilities. “As long as discrimination exists, there will be a need for the NAACP,” Eckley said. The local branch can be reached at (661) 223-7376, or on its Web site: avnaacp.org. gideon.rubin@dailynews.com (661) 267-7802last_img read more

First convicted FIFA bigwig awaits US sentencing

Posted on by

first_imgMarin was convicted of accepting bribes from sports marketing companies in exchange for contracts to broadcast major tournaments like the Copa America and the Copa Libertadores.Citing his age and frail health, his defense attorneys are asking that he be sentenced to 13 months in prison.US District Court Judge Pamela Chen was expected to announce her decision at 1430 GMT.Marin was one of the FIFA executives arrested in May 2015 at a luxury hotel in Zurich in a raid requested by the United States.The US probe revealed the corrupt, ugly underbelly of world football and the lavish lifestyle of FIFA executives who traveled around in private planes and were treated like royalty as they arrived for conferences in places like the Bahamas or Mauritius.The scandal rocked football around the world.US prosecutors ultimately indicted 42 people and sports companies, accusing them of multiple crimes and of accepting more than $200 million in bribes.Of the 42, three have since died. Of the rest, 22 pleaded guilty and two have already been sentenced by judge Chen.Another 14 remain in their own countries, where they have been either tried by local courts, are fighting extradition or are still free.Marin spent five months in a prison in Switzerland before being extradited to the US.He posted bail of $15 million and spent two years under house arrest. He stayed in Trump Tower on 5th Avenue in New York. He ventured out only a few times a week, to go to mass.Marin was imprisoned immediately after his conviction on December 22 on six counts of racketeering, money laundering and bank fraud.During the trial, defense attorneys depicted Marin as an innocent, unsuspecting elderly man that Brazil’s football federation tapped out of the blue to fill the vacancy left by the sudden resignation of the powerful Ricardo Texeira.These lawyers said Marin did nothing without the guidance of his right hand man, Marco Polo del Nero, with whom, according to prosecutors, he shared bribe payments.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Former Brazilian national football federation president Jose Maria Marin, will be sentenced Wednesday for his role in a FIFA corruption scandal © AFP / KENA BETANCURNEW YORK, United States, Aug 22 – The first bigwig convicted in the United States in the FIFA corruption scandal that disgraced world football awaited sentencing on Wednesday.US prosecutors are seeking 10 years in prison and a $6.6 million fine for Jose Maria Marin, 86, the former president of the Brazilian football federation.last_img read more

Maradona makes Mexico debut with 4-1 win

Posted on by

first_img0Shares0000Maradona vowed it was just the beginning.CULIACÁN, Mexico, Sep 17 – Diego Maradona won big in his Mexican coaching debut Monday, as the Argentine legend’s new club, Dorados, routed fellow second-division side Cafetaleros 4-1.Maradona has raised eyebrows with his decision to coach the struggling team from Culiacan, Sinaloa, in the heart of Mexican drug cartel country. But he was all smiles as Ecuadoran forward Vinicio Angulo — wearing Maradona’s old number 10 — scored a hat trick to give the new coach the win.“We played a great match,” he told a packed press conference afterward.“Some people said Maradona’s useless. There were a lot of stupid people going on television to fill up the time. I hope they’ll come to the pitch now and look at my record and see what we’re actually doing, see that I know how to do this,” he added.Still, it was hardly a monumental win: Dorados were 13th in their league heading into the match, and Cafetaleros 15th.With their newly earned three points, Maradona’s team doubled their previous total and leapt to 10th place.Maradona vowed it was just the beginning.“This was nothing, this was just one match,” he said, sporting a gold-and-white Dorados cap.“We’re still going to be playing in a lot of finals. Let’s not think we’ve achieved anything with this match. This is just the start of a beautiful dream.”Maradona, 57, lived the finest hours of his playing career in Mexico, leading Argentina to the 1986 World Cup title.His coaching career has been less stellar, and he has publicly struggled with drug addiction, alcoholism and obesity along the way.He got a hero’s welcome when he arrived in Culiacan last week.But he failed to fill Dorados’s 20,000-seat stadium for his debut.Attendance did more than double from the club’s recent matches, however: there were 10,133 fans in attendance, up from just over 4,000 on average at the previous two home appearances.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Jurors side with Angels in name change case

Posted on by

first_imgSANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) – The Angels did not breach a contract with the city of Anaheim when the baseball team changed its name to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, a jury ruled Thursday. Jurors deliberated about five hours before reaching their decision. The jury also found the team did not violate a state law requiring good faith and fair dealing. The city sued the Angels last January for breach of contract, shortly after team owner Arte Moreno changed the name from the Anaheim Angels to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The city claimed the change cost it at least $100 million in lost tourism, publicity and so-called “impressions” – buzz the city gets each time its name appears in the national media in conjunction with a Major League Baseball team.
