New Grassroots Party Decries ‘Big Book Talk’

first_imgThe newly elected national chairman of the Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP) said the party detests “big book talk and mere political slippery languages”. Instead, the Party wants direct and simple answers to unemployment, poverty, and quality schools for all.Chairman Moses Y. Kollie made the statement over the weekend at the first national convention of the party, held at the Francis Mitchell Academy in Kakata, Margibi County, and graced by an overwhelming attendance by the party’s supporters and well-wishers. The LPDP chair is of the opinion that Liberians are desirous of a national leadership that will provide business opportunities and better healthcare for their poverty-stricken families. According to him, the LPDP stands ready to address or provide answers to those problems when they shall take the helm of the country.“The LPDP comes with a new idea, an idea that will address the issues of affordable and better healthcare for all, provide good road networks in both urban and rural areas, institute an improved educational system and introduce a strategy that would encourage Liberians to go to the soil for self-sufficiency in food,” the Kollie said.He said that the party is “a grassroots people- driven political institution”, inspired by the ordinary workers, including teachers, Yana boys, market women, students, and the pem-pem riders.Mr. Kollie said the LPDP is an initiative of ordinary citizens spanning the whole social and political spectrum of the country, whether rich or poor, educated and unlettered, Americo-Liberians and or the indigenous.He said his party is different from other political parties, “because many political parties are nothing more than personality cults; parties which mostly revolve around individuals and their ideas alone, aside from their followers.“They make their ideas rule the day. They don’t accept any other views, but their own. They say, it is my way or the highway,” he told his audience.Mr. Kollie said the LPDP on the other hand, is centered on core principles, which are not person-specific or personality-driven, rather, its democratic ethos and moral rules involve caring for the poor, lifting the weak, the down-trodden and providing for the less privileged in society.“LPDP are ordinary citizens who decided that enough is enough. We are now taking matters into our own hands. Our youth and female members are the leading forces behind this unstoppable movement who see victory as the only viable choice,” he emphasized. Meanwhile the party has elected it officials who will steer affairs up to the 2017 presidential and legislative elections. Those elected are G. Wesseh Blamo, chairman, National Advisory Council; Fred C. Lamadine, national vice chair for administration; Cllr. Edward K. Goba, national vice chair for legal and policy affairs; Rep. Alex C. Grant, national vice chair for regional and electoral affairs; and Manipakei Domoe, national secretary general.Other are Yeaner Karter, national vice chair for international affairs; Jerry Roberts, national vice chair for operations; D. Wah Hne, Jr., national vice chair for political affairs; George Woodtor, national vice chair for press and public affairs; and Patrick Nixon, national youth league chairman. Earlier, the party’s national advisory council chair, G. Wesseh Blamo, said the fact that the party’s convention was violence free is an indication that the LPDP will exhibit a high level of maturity at the national level.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sylmar man remembered

first_imgSellen Jara consoled the mourners, urging them not to cry because “Dennis is in heaven.” Her graceful air impressed the cadre of hardened military officers who sat before her. “Her will and her beliefs are as strong as I have ever seen, unfortunately, for all the funerals we’ve had to attend,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Harold London of the 40th Infantry Division. Brig. Gen. John Harell said the soldiers in Sellen’s group had been removing ammunition from their weapons after returning to the base from a patrol mission when the accidental shooting occurred. “One of his buddies in the same group had an accidental discharge,” he said. He called Sellen a superior soldier. An investigation is ongoing, and it is not yet known whether the soldier, whose name was not released, will be disciplined. Sellen’s uncle, retired Army Lt. Col. William Sellen, asked the crowd to find forgiveness for the young man who accidentally took his nephew’s life. GLENDALE – More than 200 mourners, many in military uniforms, bid farewell Thursday to a young Sylmar man they knew as a singer, a jokester, a confidant and, in the end, a soldier in Iraq. Many jammed into a small chapel to pay their respects to Army National Guard Spc. Dennis Sellen Jr., 20, who died in Iraq on Feb.11 in an apparent accident. His sister Vanessa, supported by her three siblings, eulogized Sellen. His mother, Silvia Sellen Jara, sang a spiritual ballad in his memory. “I could talk to him about anything; he could always make me laugh,” said his 22-year-old sister, Vanessa, choking back tears. Recalling her brother’s charisma, she added, “I could introduce him to any of my friends, and he would instantly click with them – especially the ladies.” Sellen was deployed to Iraq in September, assigned to the 185th Infantry Regiment, Fresno. He died in Umm Qasr, Iraq. About 13,000 Army National Guard soldiers have been deployed worldwide since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001; about 22 have died. Staff Sgt. Jose Aguilar, Sellen’s squad leader, stood by the grave. “He was a good solider,” Aguilar said. “He had a great personality, a great sense of humor.” Sellen and his childhood buddies from Arat Street in Sylmar still kept in touch. Jason Buchanan, 21, said: “He shines all the time. Everywhere he goes, he just makes everybody laugh.” Vernon Barnwell, one of Sellen’s brothers-in-law, summed it up: “Everybody loved him. He’s going to be greatly missed. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do to help somebody.” Sellen attended College of the Canyons for one semester as a part-time student in spring 2006. His death was the first military casualty to strike Santa Clarita since three young soldiers were killed in 2004. judy.orourke@dailynews.com (661) 257-5255160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Manchester United had €30million Nicolas Gaitan bid rejected by Benfica in January

first_img Nicolas Gaitan 1 Manchester United had another bid for Nicolas Gaitan rejected by Benfica in January, it has been revealed.United have made several attempts to sign the Argentine winger during the last few transfer windows but the player has remained loyal to the Portuguese club.The Red Devils’ bid was reportedly trumped by UAE side Al Ahli in January, but Gaitan reportedly turned down the move as he wants to remain in Europe.“We made an offer of €35million, which Benfica accepted, since it was higher than the €30 million offered by Manchester United,” Al Ahli coach Cosmin Olaroiu said.Atletico Madrid are also understood to be keen on landing the 27-year-old and  Gaitan is apparently holding out for a move to the Vicente Calderon in the summer, when he can link up with compatriot Diego Simeone.last_img read more

Football Falls at No. 14 Montana

first_imgStory Links Stats (XML) Full Schedule Roster Next Game: “We played a great opponent. We need to learn and grow from this to be the kind of team we want to be moving forward in the season,” said Drake head coach Rick Fox.In front more 23,000 rowdy Montana fans in one of the Football Championship Subdivision’s toughest atmospheres, the Grizzlies made it even more difficult for the Bulldogs to get comfortable offensively as they brought the pressure on nearly every play, which produced seven sacks, 11 tackles for a loss and four Bulldog turnovers. However, turnovers began to mount for the Bulldogs with Montana capitalizing for a pair of touchdowns in the final 44 seconds of the third quarter to take a 31-10 lead. The Bulldogs converted on a 7-play, 63-yard drive to open the fourth quarter capped by a 3-yard strike from Kraemer to Will Purdom to pull within two scores at 31-16. However, that would be the final time the Bulldogs found the endzone as Montana scored three more times to end the game with the 48-16 advantage. “Montana’s blitz was getting to us all day. We knew that and were prepared for the blitz, but we didn’t pick it up and handle it as well as we needed. They also have a lot of defensive speed and we saw that on the field,” said FoxDalton Sneed paced Montana’s offense with a game-high 65 rushing yards, 278 passing yards and a combined three touchdowns. He completed 31-of-47 passes. Jerry Louie-McGee was Sneed’s top target as he caught 14 passes for 133 yards and a touchdown. Sean Lynch and Will Warner led Drake’s defense with seven tackles apiece. Drake surrendered just 10 first-half points to the No. 14 Grizzlies and a Danny Donley 45-yard field goal to start the second quarter accounted for the 10-7 halftime score. The Grizzlies scored to open the third quarter, but Drake countered with a well-executed fake punt that turned in a 49-yard touchdown run by Will Warner to make the score 17-10 Montana with 4:46 left in the third quarter.
