first_imgThe project director of TrustAfrica-Liberia, a pan African foundation with headquarters in Dakar, Senegal, has extended assistance to the Revival Temple Assembly of God Mission High School in Wood Camp and the Royal Christian Foundation Institute (RCFI) in the 72nd Neezoe community.Attorney-at-Law Kanio Bai Gbala presented five bundles of zinc to both schools that were recently affected by torrential rains and heavy windstorms which damaged three schools in Electoral District#3 in Montserrado County.The donation was in response to an appeal for help from the principal of RCFI, Siaka Wilson, after a storm had damaged the right wing of the school near his office. Wilson said an earlier appeal to some of the stakeholders and other prominent residents did not materialize. He further explained how the damaged section had delayed their instructional period by two weeks, but expressed gratitude to Atty. Gbala for his timely intervention, through which the damaged portion of the school has been repaired. “The project director for TrustAfrica-Liberia, one Kanio Gbala, came to our rescue. He gave us two bundles of zinc. The national principals association came with some funding,” Wilson told reporters over the weekend. He called on other well-meaning Liberians to emulate the good example of Atty. Gbala by at least visiting the campus to identify with the administration of the school during its predicament. While RCFI has repaired the damage and strengthened the roof against a recurrence, Revival Temple AGM is appealing for more assistance to complete the renovation works. Six classrooms were affected. Vice president for instruction Edwin Kalama said the incident has led to the merger of two classes in one room.Kalama said the situation is hampering the delivery of sound academic instruction to the students and noted the contribution of Kanio.“We have been communicating with other philanthropic institutions. We wrote them for assistance, but only Atty. Kanio Gbala came to our rescue. We were really surprised by his donation on the morning of the incident because we didn’t write or call him,” Kalama told reporters recently.For Atty. Gbala, the gesture is his “little way” of contributing to the country’s education sector. He then urged the authorities of the Ministry of Education to raise some support for schools that are still struggling in the aftermath of the storm in District #3. Atty. Gbala, a resident of District #3 is the founder and chief executive officer of the Friends of District #3, a philanthropic, educational and developmental group working to build unity in the district.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgFollowing their final night of round-robin games, which produced two absolute shockers, the Limacol Knockout Football tournament has reached the pinnacle of competitive playing, as players are now preparing to enter into the tenser quarterfinal round.Northern Rangers controlling possession of the ballIn the last round of play, on Saturday evening, Group ‘A’ action saw Mahaica Determinators and Northern Rangers meeting in what would be a crucial match for the latter team. Having already won two out of two matches, the young Mahaica Determinators team were sitting in a cozy position to move on to the qualifying round. However, Northern Rangers, with only one win, would have benefited well from the second.As such, the experienced Northern Rangers played all their trump cards on Saturday with the intent to advance to the final round. As fate would have it, the match-up was indeed intense, with both teams unable to penetrate the opposing goal.Frustration soon took over, which resulted in stray kicks and off-mark shots. After a quite uneventful period, the Mahaica Determinators, fuelled by the cheers and shouts from the crowd, found their winning goal. It came off of Dellon Charles’s boot in the 75th minute to seal a clean streak for the East Coast team and purchase Northern Rangers’ ticket home.Another deciding matchup came up next, with Campton challenging Buxton Stars. Buxton had gotten off to a shaky start in the competition, losing their first matchup, but returning to dominate the second. On the contrary, Campton had begun in the winning fate.They knew they would have to work hard to surpass Campton’s experience, but Buxton were set on securing their quarterfinal spot. Similarly to the first half in the previous match, spectators were treated to thrills as a result of near misses, but that was soon to end.The second half began in the best way possible for Buxton — goal from Kenaz DeCambra in the 46th minute. The encouraging fans were treated to another goal from Buxton’s Shamar Scott in the 85th minute. Knowing that time was no longer on their side, Campton seemed to immediately give up on their quarterfinal hopes.The quarterfinal action will get underway at the Ministry of Education Ground on Carifesta Avenue on Tuesday, September 25, with Riddim Squad and Beacons FC sparring in the first encounter. Police and Georgetown Football Club (GFC) will play to decide their fate right after.The competition will rest until Thursday, September 27, when the Mahaica Determinators will face off with Pouderoyen. Later on, Santos FC and Buxton Stars will take to the field for their shot at the semis.The semifinal of the Limacol Knockout Football tournament 2018 will go down on Sunday, September 30, whilst the final is scheduled for Friday, October 5. The competition is being sponsored by the New Guyana Pharmaceutical Company (GPC) under their Limacol brand. The winner of this year’s competition will walk away with $600,000.last_img read more

It was a trip that did not end on a good note. Odom struggled in his second game playing in the backcourt. Chris Mihm threw away too many passes and picked up too many fouls. Kwame Brown was two steps slow getting to places he should have been. And with Bryant unable to take control as he did Tuesday scoring 16 of his game-high 28 points in the second quarter the Lakers never were a threat. Even so, Bryant tried to encourage his teammates to run the triangle despite the score. “I could have broken out of the system and just went nuts, but it just doesn’t make sense to do that because it doesn’t improve us as a ballclub,” Bryant said. “Just stay patient. It will come.” The Lakers had hoped their pressure defense could cover for their lack of familiarity in the offense. It didn’t work, though, as Golden State countered the basics of the triangle and the Lakers were unable to turn to the automatic sets they use in certain situations. They won’t be playing Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom for only a half each. They won’t be facing the same team on back-to-back nights. They won’t have had just 12 practices to get to know each other from total strangers on the court. But the Lakers at least had to wonder after Wednesday night’s 112-81 exhibition loss to the Golden State Warriors in Honolulu just how long it will take to get the triangle offense together, especially with the season opener now less than three weeks away. They staggered and struggled with the offense all game, totaling 27 turnovers, falling behind by 25 points out of halftime and managing just one field goal in the fourth quarter. It was “futile exercise’ in coach Phil Jackson’s estimation afterward. One problem is the Lakers have players with varying comfort levels in the offense. There are five players who learned the triangle in Jackson’s first tenure as coach. There are another five who got a taste of it at the end of last season with interim coach Frank Hamblen. Then there are nine players who are totally new to the triangle. And further compounding things, the Lakers have been trying at the same time to learn a defense that is new to everyone. They have spent mornings working on defense and afternoons on offense. Yet the Lakers insist that there is time enough to learn the offense before their season opener, fast approaching on Nov. 2 at Denver. “It’s tricky because when you get it, you get it,” Bryant said. “It seems like it just kind of comes out of nowhere. But in reality, it’s all the little steps that we’ve been doing. When you get it, you get it. Then you just start seeing the rhythm click.” Point taken With Bryant struggling, the Lakers searched for a secondary scorer Wednesday and ended up totaling only 18 points in the second quarter. And where they will find points besides Bryant and Odom this season is a major question. After trading away Caron Butler in the offseason, the Lakers have a roster with only two players (Bryant and Odom) who are career double-figure scorers. “There was a dearth there,” Jackson said. “We’ll have different things for our team when we get into the season that’ll take care of things like that. But right now, I force them into a struggle situation sometimes to make sure that they have a resolve or see who can step in and fill that void. It didn’t work (Wednesday) at all.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

He never got in rhythm, finishing with 11 points and taking only eight shots. last_img read more
