‘Don’t Undermine Each Other’

first_imgThe general overseer of the Evangelical Christian Alliance (ECA) Bishop Dr. Jerry Yarkpa, has cautioned officials of the Union of Liberia Community Forests (ULCF) to work as a team instead of undermining each other for position.In his remarks at the induction of officers-elect of the union at the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) conference hall on Broad Street, Bishop Yarkpa said that the intent of forming an organization is to seek the welfare of others, and to ensure that the people who are part of that institution benefit.Those elected and installed into office are Arthur Kotee Gbabow, president; Sorboh S. Wesseh, vice president for administration; Zubah W. Kponeh, vice president for operations; Jefferson Z. Zoegbeh, secretary general; Robert M. Tarpeh, assistant secretary general; Peter Jallah, assistant financial secretary; and Madam Ruth J. Monlo, treasurer.Bishop Yarkpa observed that there are lots of organizations who have come and gone, and did not achieve the objective for which they were established, because the members fought for position rather than seeking the interest of the organization.“It is our burning desire that this organization will not be like those ones that spring up with good intention, but later became devastated because they went off the tracks, thereby leaving the ordinary persons to question them about their relevance,” he indicated.He therefore called on the union to be true partners and positive contributors to government efforts in nation building, noting that it will help in constructing a system that will be as equitable and profitable to all concerned.The bishop expressed hope in the leaders and urged them to steer the task squarely and confront it, stressing that such action lies in their cooperation with the communities and the government.In his acceptance speech, the president, Arthur Kotee Gbabow, told the UCLF members that his administration will work with the FDA to ensure speedy and successful implementation of the ongoing community forest processes that started few years ago.Mr. Gbabow said the union stands to educate community dwellers on the various steps leading to the issuance of the community forests licenses to the community by the FDA.Besides, the UCLF intends to work with the FDA and other international organizations responsible for community forests, in order to ensure that the just benefits from community forest programs and operations get to the community dwellers.The UCLF would further work closely with relevant organizations responsible for community to put in the necessary mechanisms for the protection of forests from pit-sawing, substantive farming and acts that would deplete the forests, he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

City worker is a wheel man

first_imgSUN VALLEY – Just a little after dawn each morning, “the collector” slips on white utility gloves, slides into an aqua sanitation truck and prepares for the day’s hunt across the northeast San Fernando Valley. His targets are hot pink and fluorescent orange, royal blue or shiny silver. And he finds them in places where a parent or a homeless person or a senior citizen last stood before hauling away groceries or possessions: near bus benches or under palm trees, jammed onto a mound of dead grass or pushed against a street sign. As a grocery cart collector for the city Bureau of Sanitation, Robert Garcia has become adept over the past two months at scouring boulevards and side streets to pick up the abandoned buggies – more than 2,030 so far. Sometimes, residents will thank him. “You know how it is,” he said. “There are two sides to every story.” In January, Los Angeles City Councilman Tony Cardenas launched a $55,000, six-month pilot project employing a city worker to clear the carts away from Van Nuys and surrounding areas. “This is about public safety and community pride,” Cardenas said of his decision. “The Abandoned Shopping Cart Program is cleaning up our neighborhoods and our community is safer without the threat of these carts rolling into our streets and putting our families at risk.” The pilot program stems from what Cardenas considered an ineffective city ordinance passed in 2004 that prohibits customers from taking carts off retailers’ property or dumping them in other parts of the city. Under the city ordinance, retailers are asked to hire a cart-retrieval service or install cart-containment systems like those used by several stores in Glendale. Anyone who removes a cart from a store’s property can be fined $50, but officials say no violators have been cited. Some neighborhood activists criticized Cardenas’ program, saying taxpayers’ money shouldn’t be used to collect shopping carts for grocers and other retailers. Cardenas noted the money comes from revenue generated from the city and has nothing to do with taxes. In two months, city officials will study the program’s effectiveness as well as ordinances countywide – including Glendale’s. Glendale was one of the first cities in California to adopt a law more than a year ago that requires stores to install containment systems if officials find five carts or more off a retailer’s property. “We’re a big enough city to lead by example,” said Sam Engle, administrator for the Glendale Neighborhood Services Department. “It’s the threat (of requiring a containment system) that has made stores comply.” Engle said the California Grocers Association opposed mandatory containment, preferring instead to have stores hire private companies to collect the carts. Officials with the association said hiring collectors is more cost-effective than containment systems. But Engle disagreed, saying collectors can charge what they want for an abandoned cart, costing stores more money in the end. On a recent morning, Garcia waited inside the East Valley Sanitation Bureau’s maintenance yard until he received faxes from Cardenas’ office, alerting him to the abandoned carts reported by residents. Those are the carts he picks up first. Then he goes on his route, a different one each day. The carts are stored at the East Valley Sanitation Yard, where retailers are given 10 days to retrieve them. Uncollected or unmarked carts are sent to metal recyclers. But so far, none has made it that far, officials said. While his job is pretty easy, Garcia has developed a small fear: germs. “I won’t touch a cart without gloves,” he said. susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It’s a decent enough job, said Garcia, a 21-year-old Palmdale resident who grew up in the city of San Fernando. When he first started, he would collect up to 60 carts a day. Now, he said, he can get about 40, an indication that more stores have contracted with private collectors to retrieve their wayward carts. There is now more competition between Garcia and the companies, who he says try to collect the carts earlier in the morning, so they can sell them back to the stores. On a bad day, a buggy “owner” will give him a hard time about taking away their only means of hauling heavy items. “The challenge is that the other cart companies complain that those carts are theirs, so they can get mad at us,” Garcia said. “And sometimes, people get kinda mad because they don’t have cars and they use the carts to go to the store.” last_img read more

The sound of silents

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake The effect is the musical equivalent of a high-octane cartoon. “When I do a live demonstration … and I narrate a silent film, people are screaming,” Rinaudo said. “And I want to do that. I want to bring this back. It’s got to happen. “Kids go nuts over this thing. They love this machine. It sounds like a merry-go-round.” His machine has been recorded for silent films released on DVD and for demonstrations seen by schoolchildren and film clubs. The lesson: Silent film was never meant to be enjoyed in silence. Rinaudo said most Fotoplayers were scrapped when “talkies” became popular in the late 1920s. By the 1940s, most of those remaining were dismantled so the metal could be used for the World War II effort. Rinaudo’s Fotoplayer had been in storage for decades under a stage of a Saskatchewan movie theater before it was purchased in 1970 by an Orange County resident, who kept it in his garage. Rinaudo bought it from him in 1971 for $3,500 and estimates he has spent 2,000 hours restoring it. “Of course, it’s not a job; it’s a passion for him,” said David Shepard, a retired film professor at the University of Southern California. “And he keeps going out and buying more and more (music) rolls.” Rinaudo has collected more than 1,000 music rolls for silent movies, similar to those used for player pianos. The perforated paper rolls were the “software” for machines like the Fotoplayer and provided a musical accompaniment to silent films. But few of the rolls were written for specific movies. Instead, a Fotoplayer operator would pick from rolls titled “Fire, Fire, Fire” or “On the Lagoon,” for example, to set the mood for a scene. Cues on the roll gave the operator an idea of what kind of scene would go well with the music. “A good Fotoplayer operator had to know the machine (and) had to know the film, and he had to have a little bit of a musical ear to kind of give it ‘English,”‘ Rinaudo said. Shepard, who distributes silent films on DVD through his Film Preservation Associates, has used Rinaudo’s Fotoplayer to record musical accompaniment to silent films. He has also recorded five hours of music rolls on the machine and the sound effects it makes so that those sounds can later be added to other DVD versions of silents. John Duff of Toluca Lake met Rinaudo years ago through the Sons of the Desert, a club of Laurel and Hardy fans that got its name from one of the comedic duo’s movies. On Dec. 10, Rinaudo played Laurel and Hardy films for the South Pasadena chapter of the club, using a 1912 hand-crank projector. Duff, 54, enjoys the Fotoplayer, too. “I loved it. It’s a concert within itself,” he said. “There’s just so many things you can do with it.” Rinaudo is also a big Laurel and Hardy fan, and in a way he owes his current job to the silent film icons. After seeing old lamps in Laurel and Hardy movies, he started to copy some of them and started a company in 1976 that manufactures turn-of-the-century style lamps. In a way, that has brought him back to the movies because his lamps have been used in Clint Eastwood films, in addition to landing at hotels, theme parks and Victorian homes.

You’re all set! LA CRESCENTA – What did the audience hear when one of the Keystone Kops was being conked on the head? Or when a train ran away on screen? Or a sultry Gypsy danced in a tavern? If it happened in a silent film, chances are the Fotoplayer by the American Photo Player Co. provided the sound effects for whatever was happening on screen. The last Fotoplayer – a combination piano-organ-noisemaker – was produced in Van Nuys in 1926. Collectors say fewer than 10 of the 4,500 that were manufactured still play. Film buff Joe Rinaudo of La Crescenta has one of them. He put thousands of hours into restoring his Fotoplayer, including the sounds of castanets, a train whistle, gunshots, a tambourine, a wind siren and other noises produced on the machine by hand-drawn chords. He also learned how to use his Fotoplayer to “narrate” or add a live soundtrack to a silent film. last_img read more

Bulldogs Hold Off UMKC For A 66-63 Road Win

first_img Boise State 11/27/2018 – 7 p.m. Full Schedule Roster Next Game: Box Score (PDF) Box Score (HTML) KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Despite making just three field goals in the final nine minutes of the game, the Drake University men’s basketball team outlasted UMKC in a 66-63 victory Wednesday evening at Kansas City’s Municipal Auditorium.Drake (3-1) made 16-of-18 free throws in the second half fend off UMKC (0-6) and earn the road victory on a night were both squads struggled mightily shooting the ball. “I’m proud of our guys, that was one they had to grind out and find a way tonight,” said Drake head coach Darian DeVries. “We got down 10 and had a chance to fold, but they kept fighting and made some plays down the stretch. That’s back-to-back games they’ve been able to close out a game.”With 24 seconds left in the game and Drake holding the 66-63 advantage, senior Nick Norton (Bloomington, Ill.) dribbled out the shot clock before letting a three-pointer fly that was ultimately off its mark. However, the heady play left little chance for UMKC to tie the game as the Kangaroos were forced to hoist a 28-foot shot as time expired. Fortunately for the Bulldogs’ that attempt fell off the left side of the rim to give the Bulldogs the road victory in UMKC’s home opener.UMKC’s Xavier Bishop led all scorers with 27 points in the loss on 10-of-18 shooting. As a team, UMKC shot 36.2 percent and 18.2 percent from the three-point arc.The Bulldogs didn’t fare much better from the field, converting on 35.2 percent of their shots and 33.3 percent from three-point range. However, the team’s 19-of-26 showing from the free-throw line, including 9-of-10 in the final five minutes proved to be the difference.”We were trying to get downhill and force them to foul,” DeVries said. “We wanted to get to the rim and force the action.”A D.J. Wilkins’ (Merrillville, Ind.) three-pointer with 9:30 left in the contest keyed a 10-0 Bulldog spurt over the next two minutes to give Drake a 52-49 lead with less than seven minutes remaining in the contest. The Kangaroos briefly tied the game at 54-54 with 4:35 left in the contest before another Wilkins basket followed by a Nick McGlynn (Stoughton, Wis.) three-pointer put the Bulldogs back on top for good.McGlynn and Wilkins both finished with nine points in the win, as did true freshman Garrett Sturtz (Newton, Iowa). Sturtz played 26 minutes in his first collegiate game and was 5-of-6 from the free-throw line.”We threw him out there for 26 minutes and I thought he was great,” DeVries said. “He made so many winning plays and helped us get stops. He’s a gritty, tough player.”The Bulldogs carried a slim, 30-29, lead after a first half marred by fouls and turnovers. Both teams shot 35 percent or less and combined for 17 turnovers to open the game. However, Brady Ellingson’s 13 first-half points on three three-pointers helped the Bulldogs take an early advantage. Drake held an early 15-8 lead to open the game, but seven-straight points from Bishop knotted the contest and both teams kept pace with each other for the remainder of the first half.Bishop found another hot streak for the Kangaroos to open the second half by scoring eight-straight points as part of an 11-2 run to open the half. UMKC extended its lead to as many as 10 points before the Bulldogs started chipping away at the deficit en route to the win.Drake returns to action following the Thanksgiving holiday to host Boise State, Tuesday, Nov. 28, in the MWC/MVC Challenge.

‘SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET KILLED ON OUR ROAD AND POLITICIANS HAVE DONE NOTHING ABOUT IT’

first_imgResidents living beside a busy road which has no footpaths or lighting have warned it is only a matter of time before someone is killed on it.The road between Casey and Tullydish in Buncrana runs along six different housing estates with an average of 40 houses on each estate.But residents claim their plight is being completely ignored by local councillors for some reason.The road, which is not wide enough for two vehicles to pass, is uneven and in a bad state of repair. But, as our picture shows, it is used daily by large lorries delivering all sorts of goods.A spokesman for outraged local residents told Donegal Daily “The main problem however, is that there are no footpaths for people or families to walk on.“There are a few corners that are blind so people have to walk on the wrong side of the road to get to and from the town.“As well as this there is also an issue with the speed limit of the road as it is so narrow and uneven,” he said. Every house paid a development charge for the upgrade of this road and the installation of footpaths and street lighting which has not been done.“The only time we hear or see anyone about the road is when our so called local representatives are up looking for our votes! Then we are told that the road is their number one priority and that’s the last we see of them.“While the local governments tar roads that are in way better condition than our road, so they can use up there budgeted road money for this year it makes us wonder where is our car tax money going and why should we even pay it,” added the resident.The spokesman suggested Buncrana town council could use the perfectly good curb stones they have taken off Buncrana’s Main Street and put them up our road to make a footpath for the road.“Something needs to be done sooner rather than later before an adult or child is killed trying to navigate this shambles of a road,” he added. ‘SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET KILLED ON OUR ROAD AND POLITICIANS HAVE DONE NOTHING ABOUT IT’ was last modified: October 10th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:buncranaBuncrana Town Counciloutraged residentsroadTullydishlast_img read more
