The fourth running of the O&S Tack Room Trophy will be the feature event at Caymanas Park on Saturday. A restricted stakes event for three-year-olds and up, the 1300 metres race will carry a total purse of $868,000 (inclusive of $100,000 from the sponsor). Secondary feature on the race card will be the Ruel Rhoden Memorial Trophy for maiden two-year-olds. This race will carry a purse of $800,000. O&S Tack Room and Supplies’ sponsorship for the raceday is expected to top $1 million. The sum includes their contribution to purses, as well as gift presentations of products and equipment being awarded to the winning owner, trainer, jockey and groom of each race. Lucky fans could win a number of giveaways on Saturday. They include a 40′ television, smart tablets and phones. A special scholarship (valued at $30,000 for books and supplies) will also be awarded to the child of a groom who has received exemplary grades over the past school year. Shauna Kay Hinds of O&S Tack Room said the scholarship is primarily to assist the parents, as well as to encourage the children of Caymanas Park employees to excel.
Dear Editor,With the recent pronouncement by Ireland and Argentina (both strong Catholic nations) that they want a separation of Church and State, as well as the recent sex scandals afflicting the Catholic Church, I believe ‘The Great Apostasy’ is upon us.It is clear that these events will lead to a Great Falling Away from the Churches (A Great Apostasy) which will create the conditions for a Famine for the Word of God.What can we do in these situations? We can continue to trust in the Eternal God, whose only begotten Son is Jesus Christ. Those who love Jesus Christ with their hearts will need to resist the temptation to fall away.The end result of all this is that we will see who love Jesus Christ (hence the Eternal God) with their hearts and who love Him with their heads.Yours faithfully,Sean Ori
Dr. Darren WilkinsWhy we must provide opportunities that prepare the youth of today, for the future our ICT and telecommunications sector.(A REPEAT)By: Dr. Darren Wilkins (Email: DWilkins@SaharaTechnology.Com | Phone: 0886703789/0777129092)Much has been said about President Weah’s recent appointments; especially as they relate to experience or should I say qualifications. The question is WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY INEXPERIENCED folks? In today’s article, I briefly discuss my experience in trying to implement a “vision”; a vision which, in my opinion at the time, would positively impact the future of our ICT Sector and that of Liberia’s as well.In June of 2017, I took a bold move, despite our challenges, of initiating a “Temporary Workers’ Program” at LIBTELCO. This “program initially intended to bring in THIRTY (30) young folks (High School grads, College students and college grads), to help LIBTELCO in its efforts to transform, to gain experience, “evangelize ICT, have “pocket change” for school and prepare to take lead of our ICT Sector. Call it a PRO-POOR initiative done in a different way.Those who did not understand my VISION were against that decision and REFUSED to embrace advent of a diverse group of young men and women who brought in a new energy and enthusiasm; things that the Corporation needed so desperately. Perhaps it was XENOPHOBIA, CRAB MENTALITY or simply, the feeling of ENTITLEMENT that brought about the rejection of those kids. But the kids that were brought in were young LIBERIANS who did not care much about the REMUNERATION/ salary, but more about being given the opportunity to GARNER WORK EXPERIENCE and build their resume or curriculum vitae, while helping to “RESUSITATE” a struggling Corporation. That opportunity also prevented them from just sitting home doing NOTHING, or wandering in the streets aimlessly, spending all day watching European soccer, or spending precious time at Winners and at so-called intellectual centers.You see my VISION was simple and clear: Create an ENVIRONMENT where the young and future leaders could be COACHED, MENTORED and NURTURED to take over the responsibilities of the ICT SECTOR and bring a level of MODERNITY TO LIBERIA via ICTs. In addition, it was also intended to make the young folks “ICT Evangelists” and provide “pocket change” for them since the 26th of July and the reopening of schools ensued. Believe it or not, some used this opportunity to take care of family responsibilities. Was I wrong in making that move? I frankly do not think so.While many of these kids were “let go” after my exodus from the Corporation as the new Government came in, many of them are today either part-time or full-time employees who are making a colossal contribution toward the transformation of the Corporation.I struggled to comprehend why LIBERIANS of my GENERATION would be against an initiative that is/was intended to EMPOWER the NEW GENERATION to bring development to Liberia. Do these YOUNG LIBERIANS NOT form part of the future of Liberia? Why do Liberians spend so much time strangulating each other’s progress all the time? Why is it that what’s good for YOU is not good for the other person? Why do we feel ENTITLED to some things/opportunities and no else is?Today, we complain that the President is appointing “INEXPERIENCED” people in his government. Why is this so? The very people we call INEXPERIENCED today are the ones who WERE DENIED internship, part-time work and other opportunities to gain the VERY EXPERIENCE that we are SCREAMING for today. So, why complain now? Liberia will NEVER achieve PROSPERITY if her PEOPLE do not CHANGE their MINDS and ATTITUDES.Liberia must consider the implementation of policies and programs in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication, in a manner that endeavors to drive sustained, inclusive and equitable economic growth and job creation, particularly for poor, marginalized and vulnerable. Building the capacity of young Liberians through initiatives like the one I mentioned above, is one way of achieving and sustaining economic growth in Liberia. We must not deny others the opportunity to grow simply because of our own personal agenda or philosophy. Doing so will always hurt a nation that has already been hurt for many years.I honestly do NOT regret making the decision to bring on those kids during my brief “tenure” at LIBTELCO. My philosophy is simple; if we can better the life of ONE PERSON, we would be bettering the lives of maybe at least FIVE persons, if not a generation. And, this will also bring improvement to our country. After all, the BIBLE does say “LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF” not LOVE THYSELF AND THYSELF ONLY. Or, as we say in Liberia, ONE MAN ONE CUP NO CRUST FOR DOG.”Until next week, Carpe diem!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The start of the game was delayed by an hour as ticketless Cologne fans tried to gain entry to the ground in north London and there were clearly thousands of away supporters sitting among Arsenal fans, causing a security risk.The Metropolitan Police said five people had been arrested on suspicion of public order offences and three officers had been injured as a result of the disorder, none of seriously.The German club said in a statement: “Too few places were attributed to FC Cologne supporters because five percent of the total capacity of the stadium was not sufficient. It was predictable that several thousand supporters would try to get into the stadium by any means possible.”Cologne, who said the troublemakers had “caused severe damage” to the club, also criticised security arrangements at the Emirates.“Despite the immense experience of the London security staff, who are used to Arsenal’s regular European matches, those in charge did not sufficiently prepare for the event.“The entire security plan and the communication around it appeared to us to be insufficient and there were not enough police on duty.”Cologne fans were accused of setting off fireworks, throwing objects and causing acts of damage before and during their Europa League match against Arsenal at The Emirates stadium in north London © AFP / Adrian DENNISThe German club added: “Although FC Cologne bear no responsibility for the acts of these troublemakers, we apologise to our English hosts.”Both clubs now face disciplinary proceedings from European football’s governing body UEFA.Cologne fans are accused of crowd disturbances, setting off fireworks, throwing objects and causing acts of damage, while Arsenal face a probe for “stairways blocked in away supporters sector”.– UEFA charges –UEFA said it would deal with the cases on September 21.YouTube footage showed thousands of Cologne fans surging through the streets of London before the match, chanting and setting off flares.Police inside the Emirates Stadium in north London keep an eye on Cologne supporters during their Europa League match against Arsenal on September 14, 2017 © AFP / Adrian DENNISArsenal said they had launched a “full review into the circumstances surrounding the game and will ensure any lessons that can be learned are used in the future”.Manager Arsene Wenger said he was surprised the game went ahead.“I thought they would not play the game, because I can’t see the police taking any risk,” he said.“We live in a society of 100 percent security and I thought they would never take a gamble to play this game when I saw the images around the stadium. But I must say our supporters as well dealt well with the situation and there was no aggravation.”The Europa League match between Arsenal and Cologne was delayed by an hour as thousands of ticketless German fans sought to gain entry to the Emirates Stadium © AFP / Adrian DENNISCologne goalkeeper Timo Horn said the small minority of fans who misbehaved had “brought shame on the club”.Arsenal’s statement also said it was “very disappointing” that so many home tickets appeared to have been purchased by Cologne supporters via ticket touts after the club worked closely with police, who deployed extra numbers once the trouble began, and UEFA.“The 3,000 tickets issued to Cologne fans was in line with competition rules but it is clear many more visiting fans arrived, causing significant congestion and disturbance outside the stadium before kick-off,” it said.“Many tickets were sold through touts and this is very disappointing and something we continue to work hard to address.”Arsenal won the match 3-1 after falling behind to a long-range strike from Jhon Cordoba before bouncing back in the second half.

The Opposition Congress, which was routed in Odisha in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and put up a poor performance in the simultaneous Assembly elections, has fielded 27 new faces so far. The first list of 42 candidates for Odisha was released by the AICC on Monday night — 36 for the Assembly and six for Lok Sabha seats. As per the list there are new candidates for four Lok Sabha and 23 Assembly seats in the State. OPCC president Niranjan Patnaik said the list of candidates for the remaining 15 Lok Sabha and 101 Assembly seats will be announced soon.
