Taylor struggles,Thunder lose again

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia, (CMC):There was little joy for West Indies star Stafanie Taylor or her Sydney Thunder side as they slumped to their second loss in three outings in the Women’s Big Bash here yesterday.Playing at Blacktown International Sportspark, Thunder were restricted to a meagre 115 for eight off their 20 overs and Brisbane Heat – without Taylor’s injured Windies teammate Deandra Dottin – cruised to their target with seven balls remaining, to pull off a comfortable nine-wicket victory.Despite the loss, the reigning champions remained second in the standings on nine points, just one point adrift of leaders and city rivals, Sydney Sixers.REAL ENTERPRISEHeat, meanwhile, moved into fifth spot on eight points in a tightly bunched top six separated by a mere two points.Opting to bat first, Thunder struggled from the outset and only captain Alex Blackwell with 43 from 49 balls displayed any real enterprise.Taylor, without a half-century in the tournament, struck two fours in nine before becoming the first wicket to fall in the third over.Blackwell helped put on 32 for the fourth wicket with Nicola Carey (16) to leave Thunder on 80 for three in the 15th over but five wickets tumbled for 31 runs at the end as their challenge fizzled.In reply, opener Beth Mooney struck an unbeaten 75 from 66 deliveries to energise the Heat run chase.She put on 63 for the first wicket with Kirby Short (13) and a further 54 in an unbroken second wicket partnership with Jess Jonassen (20 not out).last_img read more

S/Court Upholds Decision against Subah-Belleh in US$100K Damages

first_imgAfter reviewing the evidence on the record, the Supreme Court has upheld the lower court’s decision that defendant Nelson Oniyama had title and the right of possession to 3.31 acres of land situated at Bushrod Island in Monrovia, which had been a subject of ejection since 2010.The decision was reached with a vote of three (3) in favor and two (2) against among the five justices of the Supreme Court.Those Justices in favor were Associate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh, Associate Justice Philip A.Z. Banks and Associate Justice Sie-A.Nyene G. Yuoh, while Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor and Associate Justice Jamesetta H. Wolokollie were against the decision. The  case was filed in the Supreme Court by lawyers representing Pewu Subah and Willie Belleh arguing that the Civil Law Court  denied their request for a new trial and refused to reverse its  jury verdict declaring defendant Oniyama not liable (not guilty)  in an  “Action of Ejection,” lawsuit, for which they were claiming US$100,000 in damages.Pewu Subah and Willie Belleh jointly owned the Subah-Belleh and Associate, a Liberian professional group that has been providing management consultancy and research services in the country.But, upholding the lower court’s decision, Associate Justice Philip A. Z. Banks, now Justice in Chambers, who delivered the High Court’s opinion,  declared that “the trial judge confirming the jury verdict to award the property to defendant Nelson Oniyama, being in accordance with the facts and the law, said verdict and judgment are hereby affirmed.”Defending their actions, Justice Banks said, they (three justices) reviewed the facts and circumstances presented in the case, including oral arguments advanced by the parties and the contention in their respective briefs.“Having carefully examined the law governing and applicable to ejection matters; they were satisfied that the    plaintiff (Subah-Belleh) did not meet the evidentiary burden of proof standard required under our law relating to ejection cases,” Justice Banks further clarified.He went on to instruct the Clerk of Court” to send a mandate to the Civil Law Court, commanding the judge presiding therein to resume jurisdiction over the case, and to proceed to enforce the judgment of the court in accordance with the law. Cost is adjudged against the plaintiff, Pewu Subah and Willie Belleh.”Prior to Justice Banks’ ruling, the jury of the Civil Law Court returned from their room of deliberation and came down with an unanimously non-liable (non-guilty) verdict in favor of defendant Oniyama, concluding that he had title and the right of possession to the disputed property.They also denied Subah and Belleh US$100,000 damages claimed against defendant Oniyama.Immediately, after the jury verdict, lawyers of Subah and Belleh asked the court to set-it aside and order a new trial because, they argued, said verdict was clearly contrary to the weight of the oral and documentary evidence adduced by the defendant during the trial.Equally convinced that the plaintiffs (Subah and Belleh) had failed to meet the requisite burden of proof standard governing ejection, the court went ahead and denied their request  and proceeded to enter final judgment against them.It was based on the decision that Subah and Belleh appealed before the Supreme Court to review the ruling of the lower court.The case emerged on May 9, 2011, when Subah and Belleh lawyers complained to the lower court, arguing that defendant Nelson Oniyama had encroached on property, which they had ownership to by virtue of a deed alleged to have been issued in their favor by one John G.T. Nagbe, purported administrator of the Intestate Estate of the late G. Koffa Nagbe.They further alleged that in 1985, the Monthly and Probate Court for Montserrado County, upon the request of John G. T. Nagbe, administrator of the Intestate Estate of the late G. Koffa Nagbe, issued a court’s decree of sale of real property.They said, in 1986, John G.T. Nagbe as administrator of the estate sold a certain parcel of land containing 3.31 acres to them.They also said that after they were given the property they further lease it to Lemminkainen O.Y., a Finish construction company, which was operating in Liberia.Unfortunately, Subah and Belleh claimed that in July 2008, the same Monthly and Probate Court issued letters of administration to one Agnes S, Nagbe, claiming to be another heir of the Nagbe estate. By then, they alleged, John G.T. Nagbe, who was the original administrator, had died.“On the strengthen of those letters of administration, Agnes S. Nagbe sold the 3.31 acres of land to defendant Nelson Oniyama ,” they alleged in their lawsuit.Shortly after obtaining the administrator ‘s deed, Subah and Belleh alleged, “Oniyama began to assert title to and authority over the land , which they appealed to the  Civil Law Court to evict him and to compensate them with US$100,000 for the more than two (2) years during which he had deprived them of the property.In counter argument, Oniyama’s lawyers pled with the court to dismiss the complaint, arguing that their client on July 11, 2008 acquired through a genuine purchase the parcel of land from the Intestate Estate of the late G. Koffa Nagbe, comprising 3.31 acres of land which is the subject of ejection.According to him, before he could purchased the property,  notices  to survey it were published on several occasions  in the Inquirer newspaper and also announced on radio , thereby giving notice to other interested parties , if  any, that they were about to purchase the said parcel of land.Thereafter, they conducted the survey on June 6, 2008, “even though many persons appeared including one Jones, believed to be a surveyor of Subah-Belleh Associate, but not a single person objected to the said re-survey,”  Oniyama further claimed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

“I didn’t make decisions on short-term appointments” – Granger

first_imgIn light of questions being raised behind the rationale of Government’s move to appoint two short-term Judges at the Court of Appeal, President David Granger has declared that the decision was not his.“I don’t run the Judiciary; I simply obey the constitutional requirement for me to appoint the persons recommended by the Judicial Service Commission. So that question could be properly addressed to the Chancellor of the Judiciary, I don’t make those choices,” he told reporters when asked about the short-term appointments.The current shortage of Judges at the Guyana Court of Appeal has led Government to appoint two short-term acting Judges to work on reducing the backlog of cases at Guyana’s highest court.University of West Indies (UWI) Lecturer, Dr Christopher Arif Bulkan, and Senior Counsel Rafiq Turnhan Khan were recently appointed as acting Justices of Appeal. Both of their appointments are temporary and will only last six months.Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams had explained that the Constitution does provide for the appointment of acting Justices of Appeal.Dr Bulkan, who is the nephew of Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan, had told reporters that he will be working with all stakeholders to address the backlog of cases, which currently plagues the judicial system.Having worked at the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Chambers and being a Magistrate here, Dr Bulkan believes he would be able to make some headway in clearing up the backlog within his short tenure.Khan, on the other hand, told reporters that he brings vast experience in civil procedures.“When you come out of the Private Sector and come onto the bench, I think you bring a different perspective, not saying it’s a better perspective but you get wider views of complex legal problems and you have different experiences and it helps to widen the scope and vision of the decision you initially give,” he noted.As these steps are taken to clear up the backlogged cases, Chief Justice acting, Roxane George, last week disclosed that the number of those cases in both the High and Appeal Courts has been reduced by more than half.She explained that the High Court is now operating under a system known as the Civil Procedures Rules, which was introduced on February 6, 2017. As such, she added that cases filed before that date are being classified as ‘old rules’ matters.The Chief Justice noted that “there are a number of them that we call live matters in the sense that they are matters that will go to trial unless the parties agree to settle but we also have a number of matters that will not be going to trial. Under the old High Court rules, a Judge must adjudicate to formally complete them.” She informed that there are approximately 1500 matters before the Court that require trials or a full hearing, the remaining, from estimation, will have to be passed through the court for them to be formally closed.During last year, 2063 fixed date applications were filed and 1452 completed. Additionally, 440 Statement of Claim matters were filed of which 54 were completed. Thus far, for 2018, 214 fixed date applications were filed with 95 completed; and 37 Statement of Claim matters filed and four completed.Meanwhile, Acting Chancellor of Judiciary, Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards said since assuming office about a year ago, there have been three sets of case management or consideration and dismissal matters in the Court of Appeal.The case management exercise, she noted, was intended to determine which of the matters would go forward, following which they were gazetted, notices sent to the lawyers and litigants, publications issued in the newspapers and sittings held.According to the acting Chancellor, “simultaneously we are doing the old matters as well as we are doing current matters and to my mind, that is a good strategy for dealing with the backlog and at the same time not create a backlog, hence the need for more Judges in the Court of Appeal to continue that initiative.” (Vahnu Manikchand)last_img read more

LAPD says response times better; lack of Valley cops still criticized

first_imgAssailed by critics who say the number of San Fernando Valley police officers has slipped dangerously low amid rising gang violence, LAPD officials said Tuesday that response times have dropped by more than 30 percent and overall crime is down. But while Deputy Chief Michel Moore said he will do everything he can to keep response times low, data provided by the Los Angeles Police Department also showed that the number of permanently stationed officers in the Valley has dropped to its lowest level in four years. “The results speak of a balanced score card,” Moore told the Los Angeles Police Commission while presenting a 15-page report on the issue. The quicker response times of eight minutes, down from 12 minutes in 2003, is still one minute above its goal of seven minutes, already met by the department’s three other bureaus. And though routine calls took 40 minutes to respond to and patrols were sparse, violent crime was down 2 percent in the Valley last year. “I am ensuring that if the patrol plan is to have seven or eight units, that we don’t fall below four,” he said after the meeting. “It’s a balancing act. On a rare occasion, we have gotten woefully small.” Councilman Dennis Zine, who two months ago demanded that the LAPD provide a detailed explanation of response times and daily deployment figures, said despite the explanation, he’s not satisfied that the department has enough officers in the Valley bureau’s six divisions. “You don’t have the numbers in geographic areas responding to needs in the Valley,” Zine said. “Where are the officers to reduce response times?” he asked rhetorically, pointing out that only 72 percent of the LAPD’s uniformed officers – some 9,500 – are in regional bureaus. And though the department provided an outline of deployment plans, LAPD Chief William Bratton said in a letter to the commission, “… It is not in the best interest of public safety to release our daily deployment information …” Zine believes that the LAPD is pulling much-needed patrol officers from their regular duty and placing them in specialized units or task forces favored by Bratton. But LAPD officials said they have merely been shifting resources to where they are needed most, a hallmark of Bratton’s strategy to decrease crime in violent areas. In the Valley, gang crime is up 6 percent so far this year, but that rate has fallen dramatically from a 44 percent spike last year. Earlier in the year, to combat crime, the LAPD created one of the very task forces that Zine has complained about. The violent-crime task force goes after gangs and criminals. Though it is often credited with helping reduce gang violence, the department’s use of motorcycle officers to bolster the task force has been blasted by Zine as making the streets more dangerous. But Moore and other department leaders say there are constant trade-offs that must be made with, for instance, officers picking up a motel detail, serving on an auto theft task force or even working on the federal consent decree. It is more efficient to pool resources to focus on a specific problem that will later generate work for uniformed officers, the report argues. For instance, the Registration Enforcement and Compliance Team, or REACT, has eight officers. The team cracks down on sex offenders and checks that they are registered with police. This, in turn, frees up other officers from this duty. Moore insists the department will use overtime, officers from special task forces and any other available resources to ensure that the number of cars patrolling any Valley division does not fall below half of its recommended levels – 133 patrol units as of this month. But that number is split among six divisions and three shifts. And under that calculation, as few as three patrol cars could be responsible for one Valley division. Still, Moore said department manpower rarely falls that low. An analysis of July records – when Zine contended that the numbers of patrol units were dangerously low – showed that the Valley had about 118 of the 127 patrol units recommended on the street daily, he said. And though response times have improved, the Van Nuys and Devonshire divisions still take an average of nine minutes to respond to emergency calls. “I think we are getting our fair share,” said civilian police Commissioner Alan Skobin, who is the liaison for the Valley. “But the fair share doesn’t lead to a sufficient number of police officers that the city deserves.” Moore pointed out that the Valley – the department’s largest division, with 1.3 million people living in its 221 square miles – has problems similar to the rest of the city. “Are we stretched thin? Absolutely,” he said, “but it’s no different than anywhere in the city.” (818) 713-3741160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Fish farm pumps out trout

first_imgFILLMORE – They wiggle and splash, thousands to a trough, united by a single thought – feed me. “They’re hungry,” said Ed Toves, assistant manager at the Fillmore Fish Hatchery, as he surveyed an outdoor rainbow trout pond on a recent morning. The fish react with each approaching footstep, stirring ripples along the surface of their 100-foot rearing pond. “The fish are always hungry. All they do is eat and grow.” Toves is part of a crew of eight state Department of Fish and Game staffers at the 64-year-old hatchery along the Santa Clara River a mile east of Fillmore charged with raising more than 1 million trout a year for anglers throughout Southern California. They’ll sit there for about two weeks – most will hatch into sac fries – named for the nutrient sacs hanging from their bellies that serve as their prime food source until they’re ready for the rearing ponds outside. “That’s what they’re all living on right now,” said Toves. “As soon as they absorb the sac, we’ll release them.” Just outside the incubator shed are two rows of concrete ponds – some 4,000 feet total – where the trout will spend the next year eating and growing in 59-degree water pumped out of four on-site wells. They sit under a protective cage of bird netting. On the other side, egrets and herons gathered around a drainage culvert – they know a good meal when they see one. A truck rolls past the ponds three to 10 times a day, spitting out meal. The pond bubbles in hunger as the mix of vitamin-enriched animal and vegetable matter hits the water. The fish grow about an inch a month on the 1,500 pounds of food the hatchery scatters each day, Toves said. “It’s just like taking care of a baby,” he said. “You try to ensure their health and well-being, and to make sure we have a good product for the public.” Besides feeding, Toves and his crew have to keep an eye out for diseases such as gill bacteria and scale mold. “The fish need constant attention,” he said. “We’re here for the angling public. A happy fisherman is what we’re striving for.” Come stocking time, grown trout are poured into a truck-mounted tank for transfer to area reservoirs. Last week, about 3,600 graduated, and fish and wildlife technician Stephan DeLongfield was ready to offer them a lift to Castaic Lake. He checked both the tank’s and the lake’s temperatures. If it’s too low or too high, the fish might end up in shock. The hatchery doesn’t stock fish in the summer. “They get really lethargic in the heat,” he said. “But 74 degrees is the cut-off.” The tank was 57 degrees, and the lake 60 degrees – just right, and DeLongfield uncovered the pipe on the side of the tank. Hundreds of trout hurled into the shallow edge of the lake, though some took a bit of pole-prodding before making for deeper waters. It’s a hard life for trout in the wild – they’re prey to other fish and birds. In fact, moments after their release, an osprey swooped down and snatched one out of the lake. “He’ll take it back to his nest,” DeLongfield said. “Not all of them will get eaten right away. But a good number will feed the bass in here.” And there are fishermen such as Parker Wright. The 15-year-old from Laguna Niguel was bass fishing lakeside when he chanced upon the stocking – he had a bite within seconds. “It’s a feisty one,” he said, reeling one in. He unhooked it and set it free. “I don’t call it fishing at this point,” DeLongfield said. “I call it catching.” Wright said he has been fishing for six years, and counts a 50-pound albacore caught in the oceans off Mexico among his prizes. “I want to become a professional some day,” he said. “It takes technique and patience.” Still, a few lucky ones might survive the year, DeLongfield said. “The big trouts – we call them holdovers – they might last a couple years,” he said. “They’ll come back and live to spawn another day.” eugene.tong@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

When the fish are about a year old – about 10 inches in length – they’re released into the lakes and streams between Kern County and Orange County. Last week, some 3,600 rejoined nature at Castaic Lake – they’ll either survive to spawn as their parents had, or be a meal for the ospreys, bass or fishing fans. “It’s straightly professional,” Toves said. “There are a little too many to name.” While the trout are nurtured in Fillmore, they were spawned some 200-300 miles away in either the Mount Whitney or Hot Creek hatcheries in the eastern High Sierra. Trays of 350,000 translucent orange trout eggs, each about the size of a cultivated pearl, arrive four times a year by truck and head straight for the incubator. last_img read more

They can now look forward to their finals day on the 27th July for boys and 28th July for the girls, both in Malin.U6 players of the week this week were Andrew Lyle and Jade Harkin. U8 players of the week were Natasha Doherty and Eamon McDaid. Under 8 training now takes place every Saturday from 10-11am. If there are any parents or members of the community willing to get involved in coaching or helping in the club in any way, could they please get in contact with Mags Mulhall. The following children were selected to represent the North Inishowen primary school team who played south Inishowen in Carndonagh on Sunday 8th June. The girls are as follows: Breena Diver, Erin Coyke, Aoibh Faulkner, Clodagh Skelly, Niamh Skelly, Kerry Mc Laughlin, Niamh Mc Laughlin, Niamh Mc Donald, Claire Mc Laughlin, Kirsty Connolly & Kate Mc Clenaghan The boys are as follows: Eoin O Doherty, CJ Mc Crudden, Michael Leech, Oran Mc Guinness, Shaun Mc Donald, Brennan Moore & Conor Mc Laughlin. Well done to all the children involved.U16 BOYSThe U16 boys had to dig deep to come from behind to beat a tough Carn team on Friday night in the Inishowen A semi final. Carn started the brighter and had a goal and a point on the board before Moville got their first score from Paddy Faulkner. A goal from Jack Banks after a 45 had dropped short had Moville back on level terms after 20 minutes however despite some great fielding by Mark Browne their lethargic start continued for the remainder of the half as Carn led 1-4 to 1-2 at half time. Both teams scored 2 points apiece at the start of the second half before Moville clawed themselves level with points from Paddy Faulkner and young Eoghan Gillen who had advanced from the backline. With the game level, and the tackles coming in thick and fast from both teams, the turning point came when Cathal McLaughlin scored a goal at the 2nd attempt after his first effort had been well saved by the Carn keeper. Moville added another point from Paddy Faulkner before Carn replied with a goal of their own to leave a point in it with 3 minutes to go. Moville also lost their goalkeeper Ciaran Bonner to injury which added to the blow as he was enjoying a commanding game in goals. However not for the first time this season, the boys dug deep in the last few minutes and added an insurance point from the impressive Browne. While this win maintains the boys 100% record for the season, they will know that this was far from their best performance and a massive improvement will be required to beat a highly impressive Muff team in the final.U14 GIRLSThe U14 girls will contest the county semi-final on Tuesday 24th June at 7.30pm in Carrick Field. The club would like to wish them the best of luck and encourage as many members as possible to come along and support. Remember, nothing beats being there!SENIOR MENThe Senior Men have been having a good run of form of late, but unfortunately there was no match last weekend, as Na Rosa did not field. Below is a match report from the very tight Naomh Ultan game from the weekend before.Moville 2-07 Naomh Ultan 2-06Moville and Naomh Ultan were neck and neck in fourth and third place respectively in Division four with only a point between them. Naomh Ultan wanted the two points to keep in touch with Letterkenny Gaels and Convoy, Moville wanted the victory to move up to third in the league. On a fine night for football, Moville had the brighter star with points from Nigel McMonagle and Sean O’Hare in the 5th and 6th minutes. Nigel provided excellent build up play before laying the ball off to Joshua Lafferty who raised the green flag with a well taken goal in the 11th minute. Naomh Ultan got a score on the board two minutes later with their first point. Enda Faulkner made an excellent run from his own half to the opponents’ goal and has his shot blocked by an excellent save from the Naomh Ultan keeper only for Lafferty to grab his second goal from the rebound. Naomh Ultan scored another point from a free; followed by points from Dannt Murphy and Ciaran Diver for Moville in quick succession. A mix up in the Moville defence led to an easy goal for Naomh Ultan on the stroke of half time, leaving the score 2-05 to 1-02.  The second half started with much of the play in the middle of the field and few chances for either team, with Naomh Ultan breaking the stalemate in the 10th minute with a point, then another on the 12th to close the gap. Sean O’Hare scored another point from a free in the 16th minute, and Naomh Ultan got another point a minute later. There was a quiet spell in terms of scoring and again Naomh Ultan came out of this with a point and a goal in quick succession to draw level in the 26th minute. It was the cool head of Sean O’Hare who slotted over a free in the 31st minute to take the game for the home side. Moville: 1. Oran McDermott; 2. Shaun Diver; 3. Enda Faulkner; 4. Declan Logue; 5. Jack Keys; 6. Michael Brown; 7. Ciaran Diver (0-01); 8. John McGeady; 9. Malachy McDermott; 10. Danny Murphy (0-01); 11. Sean O’Hare (0-03, 2f); 12. Maurice Harkin; 13. Seamus Hegarty; 14. Nigel McMonagle (0-01); 15. Joshua Lafferty (2-01)  Unfortunately the Senior Reserves were unable to overcome Naomh Ultan reserves, having been defeated by a score of 2-07 to 3-11. Training this week on Wednesday and Friday at 6.30 CONGRATULATIONSWell done to both Donegal Senior and Minor teams who now through to this year’s Ulster Final. Well done to our club players Tony Mc Cleneghan and Ciaran Diver who are part of the minor squad. We will not know until after the Monaghan vs Armagh game this Saturday who we meet but regardless it’s going to be a wonderful occasion to have both our minors and seniors in an Ulster Final.

first_imgThe organisers of one of Donegal’s biggest events has hit out at election candidates for squeezing their event off the agenda.The North West Garden Show usually attracts thousands of visitors.The CPI group from Castlefinn, who organise the North West Garden Show, say they can’t advertise their event – because there is no room left.The Garden Show attracts thousands of visitors locally and from across Ireland.
