Follow The Trace | Enough of Ari

first_img While there are important points of principle driving the discussions surrounding this issue, Champs, as an institution, has always been bigger than any single individual. in the wider scheme of things, winning or losing champs ought not to be so critical to the lives of so many people, but it is. There comes a time, though, when enough must be enough, enough mud-slinging and anger expressed. The venting process must end. Time to move on to the more important business of champs itself. Both the Calabar and KC families should move from anger mode and get set for the real spectacle. Rodgers or no Rodgers, this Champs will be a battle royal between these two powerhouses. I am personally embarrassed by the fact that the rhetoric of the past several weeks has been dominated by the eligibility of a 14-year-old Ugandan distance runner who will not even be the biggest star or the brightest prospect on show. The young fellow, in his quiet moments, must be thinking to himself, “Wow! After living in Jamaica for a few months, I have become the most talked-about person in this country, these Jamaicans are quite silly,” and who could blame him for having those thoughts. For sure, ISSA made an unusual decision in response to an unusual situation driven by some extenuating circumstances, and again, quite rightly, questions of consistency and equity have been asked of the governing body, but things have definitely gone overboard. The level of polarising discourse that this issue has ignited is becoming unhealthy and is sending the wrong message. Its approaching the level of petty, party political partisanship. It would be reasonable under normal circumstances to even suggest that we have had enough of this Ari Rodgers fiasco. It would also be reasonable to propose that Kingston College should, in the interest of transparency and fair play pull the young Ugandan from competing at Champs. On the other hand, Calabar would, under normal circumstances, be expected to extend the olive branch and let bygones be bygones. However, these are hardly normal circumstances and neither Calabar nor KC will relent. That is what makes them what they are. Controversy certainly sells, and, for sure, the swirling saga engulfing the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA), Uganda-born Kingston College (KC) athlete Ari Rodgers, and defending under pressure boys’ champions Calabar High has ignited even more interest in what already promises to be a supercompetitive and spectacular 2017 ISSA GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships. It is almost surreal the way this situation has escalated to the point of it dominating almost all the pre-champs discussions. The media, in doing our job, have given widespread coverage to every micro-dynamic concerning the eligibility of this 14-year-old class two athlete. The subsequent decision by ISAA to grant Rodgers special exemption to compete, and the ensuing polarising effect it has had on the Kingston College and the Calabar fraternities, have seen this issue ballooning into an incredible soap opera. One is tempted to forget that despite this being Champs, the biggest sporting event on the Jamaican sporting calendar, and the biggest and best event of its kind in the entire world, and despite all the perennial hype, champs is still an amateur high school event. Ironically, it has been the adults involved in this process who have driven the controversy. It is the adult loyalists on either side of the issue who continue to broaden the divide by their often blind and irrational support for the purples’ or the green and black’ – the same adults who are supposed to be guiding the students along the righteous path of rational objectivity, balance and fair play.

‘Important Centerpiece’

first_imgFinance Minister, Amara Konneh has said that the rehabilitation of the Mount Coffee Power Plant is an outcome of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s bold leadership and an important centerpiece of her “Agenda for Transformation (AfT).”The government’s AfT is a five-year development plan that intends to put Liberia on the path to achieving the much publicized Vision 2030 Programs.The goal of Vision 2030, according to government sources, is to make Liberia a middle income country in 18 years (2012-2030). The government intends to achieve this through provision of affordable and reliable power; which would subsequently lead to the booming of economic and industrial activitiesSpeaking at the groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday January 25, Minister Konneh said that the occasion was an important step in bringing reliable and affordable power to more people across the country.The ceremony was held at the location of the plant in Harrisburg, Careysburg District, Montserrado County; approximately 21 miles from Monrovia. The Mount Coffee hydro plant lies on the Saint Paul River.”The ground-breaking for the Mount Coffee hydro plant is an important step in bringing power to more people across the country. The project is partly funded by significant investment from the Government of Liberia as a key element of its public sector investment strategy. This would provide a boost to businesses and light manufacturing industries, increasing employment opportunities,” the finance boss saidHe indicated that government had infused roughly US$45 million to the energy sector, which has been termed on many occasions as a “national emergency” by President Sirleaf.“It is very important that we do all we can to ensure that Mount Coffee becomes a success, even if we have to cut foreign travel, gas, scratch-cards and recurrent spending to save money and ensure that projects like this succeed,” Konneh pleaded with his fellow government colleagues.“For those of us who need to understand the extent to which this country was destroyed and the bold steps we are taking to revitalize our infrastructure, come to Mount Coffee and see,” he challenged.The cost to build the hydro plant during the 1960s was US$80 million; but renovating is estimated at between US$250-300 million dollars—evidence the project is an expensive one.The nation’s treasury boss also expressed gratitude to all partners who have contributed to not only the rehabilitation of Mt. Coffee hydro plant, but to other sectors within the economy at large.Germany’s Ambassador Ralph Timmermann said he was particularly excited by the initiative and its potential to benefit government’s revenue generation schemes as well as thousands of small and medium entrepreneurs.The Ambassador of Norway, Hege Hertzberg, said that the government and the people of Norway are impressed with the level of progress made by the government in ensuring that Liberia becomes a middle-income country by 2030.‘’Madam President, Norway is so impressed by your leadership and the dedication you have shown during this extremely difficult time of reconstruction, not only in Mt. Coffee but the entire Liberia,”“We are very proud to call ourselves your friends Madam President; therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to confirm Norway’s promise to support your endeavors in the energy sector, specifically the reconstruction of Mt. Coffee,” Ambassador Hertzberg said.The Project Director, Mr. Randal Enns, assured that by 2015, the hydro plant would be in full swing. He said its impact in the economy would be felt across the country. As President Sirleaf unveiled the hydro plant’s design, she assured Liberians that by December 2015 the Mount Coffee Hydro Power Plant would be fully completed and would impact them in a variety of ways.“So many people have worked hard to make this day a reality. The LEC folks, the Ministers, the workers that you see standing around you, the Legislators and our partners, have all worked tirelessly for us to be here. The fruits of their labor will allow us to start the process of the restoration of power through the Mt. Coffee Hydro plant,’’ she explained.The hydro plant, when fully rehabilitated, is anticipated to supply 60 Mega Watts of reliable and affordable electricity to residents and businesses of Monrovia and its immediate environs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bassa Schools Elated

first_imgAs a way to respond to the problem of scarcity of textbooks in schools in post-war Liberia, the Grand Bassa County Association (GBCA), based in the United States of America (USA), has donated a consignment of 10,000 textbooks and 100 computers to the county for distribution in various schools.The donation from Bassa citizens in the United States is to be distributed to every school operating in the county.Some of the schools to benefit are the Bassa High School and the Grand Bassa Community College.Making the donation on Monday, April 14, the president of GBCA, Jerome Gaymeh, said the union is collaborating with several other partners in the states to donate these consignments to the county.According to him, GBCA and its partners acquired 40,000 modern textbooks and 100 computers for schools in the county. Out of that amount, there were able to ship 10,000 textbooks and all 100 computers in the first batch, with the balance 30,000 books to be shipped later.Making the donation, Mr. Gaymeh explained that out of the 100 computers, 50 were part of Indian River State College’s contribution while St. Louise College in Florida, USA were responsible for donating the other 50 along with the 10,000 books.Mr. Gaymeh assured the people of the county that GBCA remains committed to improving the lives of Basonians through education.He thanked Representative Robertson Siaway of District # 5 and Senator Gbehzohngar Findley for their tireless efforts in ensuring that their dreams become reality.For his part, Grand Bassa County electoral District # 5 Representative Robertson Siaway, acknowledged the U.S.-based organization for honouring the call and providing educational material to the students of Grand Bassa.Representative Siaway told the GBCA president that giving back to Bassa is the surest way of contributing to its rebuilding process.“Bassa can be developed if its citizens put the county’s interest first and forget about all other things to work together as one people. I think this will promote our county and Liberia as a whole,” he indicated.The Lawmaker used the occasion to call on other citizens of the county that are residing in the diaspora to give back to their people.Receiving the items on behalf of the schools, the president of Grand Bassa Community College, Levi Zangar, said the donation came at a moment were everybody is hungry for education in the county’s schools.Mr. Zangar then assured the GBCA that the donation would be used for its intended purpose and called on citizens to emulate the good example of the organization.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

St Stanislaus emerge champions at scholastic chess competition

first_imgKnown in the world of local chess for creating platforms on which young players can display and improve their skills, Marian Academy has once again hosted a chess competition. This time around, the scholastic competition was open to outside schools, adding a little flavour to the competitiveness. The event saw participation from schools such as Queen’s College, The Bishops’ High School, Saint Stanislaus College, Mae’s Under 12, Tuschen Deaf Academy, School of Nations, Al Ghazali Islamic Academy and, of course, a home team from Marian Academy in both primary and secondary categories.In the team version of the secondary competition, St Stanislaus College’s A team comprising young champions such as Jaden Taylor, Ghansham Allijohn, Jarrell Troyer and Chelsea Juma took top honours. Juma, who played unbeaten, fuelled her experienced team to a 5.5 point win, a half point ahead of their next opponent.Surprisingly, the second position was taken by the Queen’s College A team. Upcoming sensation Rajiv Lee could be thanked for that, after leading his team to five points. Being new to the scene, Queen’s College showed grit and determination as they were the only team to draw with Saints 2-2, out of four matches.They were followed closely by tournament favourites Marian Academy. With Ethan Lee leading the charge for the home team, they garnered 4.5 points for their third place. Also shining on the Marian team was Odit Rodrigues, who played magnificently for his wins in the first, second and third rounds.Also fairly new to the competitive chess world were School of the Nations, who played valiantly. Shabaka Martin and Joshua Khan were notable mentions for the team.It was difficult to adjudge an individual top runner amongst the players as Ethan Lee, Jaden Taylor, Odit Rodrigues, and Jorrell Troyer all recorded 5.5 points, four wins, no losses and one draw. While Rajiv Lee suffered one loss out of his six games with five wins for his five points.On the other hand, Marian Academy got their taste of victory in the primary team category. However, the most outstanding performance in the category came from Tuschen Deaf Academy, whose players Aleem Basser and Anaya Lall made sure their teams were in the limelight with some fighting victories over much higher rated players. While Marian Academy’s B team took the third prize, fourth were copped by Mae’s Under 12 School. Arysh Raghunauth and the Alli brothers – Jibril and Kaiden – recorded some much-needed wins for their team.Marian Academy, however, made their mark in the individual categories, winning both primary and secondary divisions. Ronan Lee, Gareth Da Silva and Dwayne Bess all from Marian Academy took top honours in the secondary division. The host school dominated once again in the primary division as Neal Rodrigues, Kyle Couchman and Italy Ton-Chung ended in the top three positions. However, notable games from Jacob Mc Donald of School of the Nations and Omar Shariff of Mae’s School were highlights of the event.The event was hosted by Marian Academy with full support from the Wendell Meusa Chess Foundation. The hosts wished to extend special thanks to the Head Teachers of Mae’s School, School of Nations, Al Ghazali Islamic Academy, Tuschen Deaf Academy, Queen’s College, St Stanislaus College and the Bishops’ High School, as well as the Lees, Frasers and all parents who were supportive throughout the event.last_img read more
