first_imgOne person was serious injured and the windshield of a vehicle was badly damaged last Friday during the execution of court order.One of the parties had gone to take possession of a building situated on Ashmun Street in Monrovia due to a court order.The structure is believed to be a portion of the Intestate Estate of the Late John W. Taylor that is being managed by one William A. Cisco, who is serving as its administrator.Magistrate Nelson Chineh, then Stipendiary Magistrate of the Monrovia City Court in 2009, heard the matter of the fake administrator title between William Cisco and one Koko Mayors, known as “Koko Cisco,’ where the magistrate established that the original administrator was William Cisco.His decision came after Koko was arrested and charged with theft of property and forgery by the Liberia National Police (LNP) in February 2010.It was however based on the 2009 decision of the court that the Cisco family last Friday decided to take possession of the building on Ashmun Street when the scuffle broke out.Speaking to the Daily Observer yesterday, Charles Cassell, one of the children, alleged that before he was attacked, he took two carpenters to the area to take off the roof of the building based on the court’s 2009 decision.According to Cassell, when they got to the location of the building, he met a group of men believed to have been hired by Koko Mayors, who reportedly prevented them from entering the compound.When he would not comply, Cassell said the other men allegedly jumped on him, started to beat him and broke the windshield of his father’s vehicle. Thereafter, he ran to safety at the Slipway Police Station.He further alleged that Koko’s men ran behind him until they all entered the station.“What shocked me was that the police detained me after Koko went to the station, ignoring my earlier complaint. I don’t know what is happening that if a man takes his complaint to police and without any investigation, the police detained him,” he said.He said it was based on his father’s lawyer’s intervention that he was released from detention.“We are afraid and we don’t know where to go for help, so we are calling on the government to intervene to allow us to get our legitimate properties,” he appealed. Prior to the incident, the Magistrate’s decision for Cassell to reclaim the property was made after the court withdrew the ‘power of attorney’ from Koko Cisco and he was charged by the LNP for theft of property and forgery.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_imgMcGettigan Group Chairman Jim McGettigan has been honoured with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the Irish Pubs Global Awards.The popular Irish bar chain took home five awards in total at the Irish Pubs Global Awards in Dublin last night.Kilmacrennan native Jim McGettigan was surrounded by his family to celebrate the honour and mark the many achievements of the hospitality group. Jim opened his first pub in Dublin in 1964. The McGettigan group has since expanded across the globe, and now incorporates 10 hotels and 15 Irish pubs, with the 16th opening in Dubai this month.“We are honouring a wonderful family man who has achieved so much in his career. Jim has made an extraordinary contribution to Irish and Global hospitality” says Sarah Newman, Irish Pubs Global.Jim McGettigan and Family at the Irish Pubs Global Awards 2017McGettigan’s roots go back to 1964, when founder Jim McGettigan opened his first pub on Queen Street, Dublin.Hailing from Kilmacrennan, Co. Donegal, Jim McGettigan was the eldest of nine children – three brothers and six sisters. At the age of 14 years, he left school to work at a local pub, in order to help out with his family’s finances. Soon after, Jim got a job working on board the Queen Elizabeth I (QE1) washing dishes, before becoming a waiter and working his way up the ranks. After eight years on the QE1, and upon meeting his wife in Southampton, he returned to Ireland and bought his first pub on Queen Street in 1964 and so, the first McGettigan’s bar was born.Jim in Queen Street with brother NeilThen in 1969, Jim purchased another building, which was in liquidation, and called it The Baggot Inn. Few venues can boast such a colourful history and well known patrons. A young Bono was almost turned away from these world famous doors for looking under age, Tracey Chapman launched her career here. Bob Geldof begged for a month before he was given a gig. U2, David Bowie, Christy Moore, Thin Lizzy, Mary Coughlan and The Water-boys and all performed some of their best gigs in these four walls.In 1978, Jim McGettigan bought his first hotel and continued to purchase properties and hotels for the years after. By 1995, he had six hotels and two bars. In 1999, he bought the three star Bonnington hotel in London and brought it up to 4 star hotel. In 2003 he bought the Cavendish Hotel in Eastbourne. In 2005, Jim purchased a piece of sand in Dubai, which became the Bonnington Hotel in Jumeirah Lake Towers, and which opened in 2009.Bonnington Hotel DubaiMcGettigan’s NYC launch June 2015 – Dennis McGettigan, Jim McGettian and Wife Patrica, Lorraine McGettigan, Anita McGettigan and James McGettiganA family business from the start, the idea to establish a chain of Irish pubs under the family name, originated through the vision of Jim’s son, Dennis McGettigan. The first McGettigan’s Irish pub opened its doors in Jumeirah Lake Towers, Dubai in November 2010.With the inaugural venue a success, the brand expanded further, with new bars opening across the UK and Ireland, the Middle East, Asia and USA. Seven years later and there are a total of 16 McGettigan’s pubs worldwide including the original Queen street venue, with a further addition opening in October 2017 in Dubai at The Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Hotel on JBR Walk and in the emirate of Al Ain and Ajman and one in Qatar.

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
