first_imgPolice in Nimba County have charged four persons for the murder of a 37 year old woman identified as Angie Luogon. The incident occurred recently in Gbor Gbanwin, Gbor Administrative District in Nimba County, where the lifeless body of Madam Luogon was discovered near an old diamond pit, police said. Those charged for her death are Junior Nuahn, Milton Monsiah, Nathaniel Luogon and Federick Dolo. Police said Nathaniel Luogon and Frederick Dolo were identified as the husband and nephew of the deceased. Nimba County Police Crime Services Commander James Kartoe told the Daily Observer via mobile phone on November 24 that those charged in connection with the murder have already been forwarded to the Eighth Judicial Circuit Court in Sanniquellie for prosecution. The Daily Observer gathered that Frederick Dolo allegedly participated in the murder because someone that police are yet to identify had promised him US$750. The late Angie Luogon was reported missing on November 12 after she had gone to gather firewood in her village in Gbor Gbanwin. A family member confirmed that the body was found in an old diamond pit. The discovery followed a vigorous search carried out before officers of the Nimba County Police Detachment had been informed. The police immediately began their investigations.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_img– 10 acres of land securedThe Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is now closer to the construction of its new headquarters after having secured 10 acres of land at Providence, East Bank Demerara (EBD).GCAA Director General, Lieutenant Colonel (retd) Egbert Field said “that was the only area we could get that quantity of land and I find the land adequate and I find it strategic for the headquarters to be placed in Providence. We’re not too far from Timehri or Ogle and both aerodromes are international aerodromes at this time”.Field is positive construction will commence in May this year; however, the project is currently at the procurement stage after which a contractor will be secured to clear the land to begin preparation for construction.Outlining the aesthetic of the new headquarters, the Director General explained that it will be a four-story building, capable of housing more facilities than the current building with adequate parking space. The Department of Public Information said Field also disclosed that a section of the GCAA’s training school will be roomed in the new headquarters. Additionally, the new location will provide more convenience for the majority of the Authority’s staff who reside in communities along the EBD.“We have been moving from place to place; we moved from Wight’s Lane to Prashad Nagar then to Colgrain House, then from there, Duke Street and now we’re at High Street Kingston, so having a permanent location we can call home is what we’re looking for,” Field posited.The Head of the GCAA emphasised that with the new headquarters in place, the Authority will be able to maximise efficiency and the day-to-day operations, especially in light of the expansion of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport and the bourgeoning oil and gas sector in the country.last_img read more

first_img“I’m relieved that it’s over, and now we can go home,” Cussler said, holding Horvath’s hand. Jurors heard 14 weeks of testimony and deliberated for eight days before deciding Cussler had breached an “implied covenant of good faith” and inflated book sales. A jury determined Tuesday that adventure author Clive Cussler breached his contract and ordered him to pay $5 million to Crusader Entertainment, the production company owned by billionaire Philip Anschutz that turned his novel “Sahara” into a box office flop. However, the complex ruling left open the possibility Cussler could end up pocketing more than he pays out. Jurors said Superior Court Judge John P. Shook should determine whether Crusader, since renamed Bristol Bay Productions, must pay Cussler about $8 million for the screen rights to a second book. An attorney for Crusader said his client shouldn’t have to pay Cussler in light of the verdict. “We clearly don’t want the rights to the second film,” Marvin Putnam said. Cussler attorney Bert Fields said he’s still hopeful the judge will side with his client and the writer will end up with “a net gain of $3 million.” Cussler smiled and hugged his fianc e, Janet Horvath, after the verdict. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gerry McMonagle and Head of Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney, pictured with Thomas McLaughlin of Tadáias after he’d won the prize for Best Established Business at the Regional Finals of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur.Thomas McLaughlin of Tadáias Premium Cycling Apparel was the Donegal winner of the Best Established Business in December and he said he was thrilled to take the regional Title in the face of some strong competition.“It is really great to win another award and to go on now to Google for the national final. It is more validation for the company and reward for all the hard work put in. It is great to have that from your peers.”Thomas said that winning the Donegal award had already been a huge benefit to his business.“Since the Donegal final there was a great boost to our web traffic, especially from the business community and there are a lot of cyclists in that community. A lot of people have come and found the company and we have got some big orders just based on IBYE success for sure.” The Chief Executive of Donegal County Council, Seamus Neely, the Cathaoirleach, Cllr.

It is the national final now and I just can’t believe it.”A former player with the Republic of Ireland Soccer team, Ciara is no stranger to the big stage.“I was asked that, how did playing for the Republic of Ireland prepare you for business on a global scale? What I told the judges was that anything I put my name to I am going to make sure it works and make it at the highest level possible. Whether that was for Republic of Ireland in soccer or Niche in international business.”Ciara said that her business had benefitted immensely from winning the Donegal competition and she is hoping for more of the same now. “We had a phenomenal boost after winning the Donegal final. We used it as a platform for our American clients as part of our Irish story and we generated two new clients from that. Hopefully this will have a similar impact and I really am looking forward to going to the national competition.”The Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr. Gerry McMonagle, congratulates Thomas McLaughlin of Tadáias Premium Cycling Apparel after he’d won the Best Established Business at the Regional Finals of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur.After a year of success Thomas McLaughlin, says the chance to fine tune the business plan and pitch again is something he is looking forward to.“I’ll just go down and pitch, do my best and leave everything on the table. If you come out knowing you’ve done the best that you can do and are happy then that’s ok. If the judges decide someone is better that’s just the way it is, but if you give it your best shot then you can’t ask for more, so that’s what I will do.”Earlier in the evening the Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr. Gerry McMonagle reminded all twelve of the finalists that they had arrived at the Regional Awards as winners – and they should be extremely proud of that. “Over the past number of months you will have spent a huge amount of time on your business, fine tuning and improving, making the most of the expert advice on offer from your various Local Enterprise Offices.Whatever the outcome in this competition, I am certain that expert engagement, those hours of planning and preparation, will help your businesses grow from strength to strength in the years ahead,” he said.All of the businesses were also reminded by the Chief Executive of Donegal County Council, Seamus Neely, that engagement with their Local Enterprise Office gave them a platform to access the suite of supports and services on offer from their Local Authority.Head of Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney, echoed the comments of the Cathaoirleach when he reminded the businesses that they had already made huge progress in their business.“I spoke with the judges after the competition and they were blown away by the standard of each of the businesses here. They really did have a difficult job and I urge all of you to continue work with your Local Enterprise Office and to keep building and growing your business.”Donegal finalists in the Regional Final of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur Competition were from left Deidre Ward, Unlock; Thomas McLaughlin, Tadáias and Ciara McGlynn of Niche Specialist Systems.While Donegal won two of the three categories on the night, the winner of the Best Idea category was won by Sligo’s Noel Dykes, who pipped Donegal’s Deirdre Ward of Unlock, Longford’s Warren Belton of Magma Clava and Leitrim’s Raymond McBdie of Nowee for the title.All three Regional winners now progress to the National Finals to be held in the Google Headquarters in Dublin on Sunday March 4.Local Enterprise Office Donegal is supported through co-funding from the Irish Government and the European Regional Development Fund 2014 – 2020Donegal triumphs as two entrepreneurs progress to National Finals of IBYE was last modified: January 19th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:Ciara McGlynndonegal leoibyeIreland’s Best Young EntrepreneurNiche Specialist Staffing PartnersTadáiasthomas mclaughlinlast_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2That was in April, and now librarian Nina Thompson said so far they have more than 100 donated books and more arrive daily. “They’re so excited to be helping the less fortunate,” Thompson said. Reed is a member of Seacoast Grace Church in Cypress, which has adopted the orphanage as a charity project. In December, the church sent more than 1,000 pairs of shoes to the orphanage. Church members also built facilities that deliver fresh water and electricity to the orphanage. Last year the church sent a team of doctors, teachers, business people and assistants to the orphanage, a total of more than 70 people. Reed was one of the teachers and taught health and hygiene classes for 10 days. DUARTE – Orphaned children in Uganda will soon be reading “Aesop’s Fables,” “Lady and the Tramp” and “Frosty the Snow Man,” thanks to students at Royal Oaks Elementary School. Deitra Reed, Royal Oaks’ principal, visited Uganda last July with a group from her church and was surprised that the orphanage outside Kampala, the capital and home to more than 900 preschool to sixth-grade students, had no library. Reed told some Royal Oaks students about the orphanage, how students there sometimes must wear mismatched shoes and that they don’t have any books. “I told them how that didn’t stop them being happy and learning,” Reed said. “Then a sister and brother brought some books to school and said it was for the orphans. I told other students if they were doing spring cleaning and had books they didn’t want, to bring them.” Another medical team will visit the orphanage in July to deliver medical supplies. Reed said the books will be packed with the supplies. “When you mail things to Uganda, it doesn’t always get to the people who expect it,” she said. “It’s easier to send things by personal messenger. That way you know it got there.” emanuel.parker@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4475160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgBREAKING NEWS: GARDAI are tonight hunting a “sinister” criminal gang which poses as social services inspectors in a bid to gain access to people’s homes.The crooks have tried to gain access to a number of homes in County Donegal, donegaldaily.com has learned.Sources say that in one incident two men in their 30s and a woman around the same age tried to force their way into the home a married couple with a young child. The conmen and their female associate were Irish. Garda sources say it is too early to speculate on what the motive for the incident was.“It may have been to get into the house and steal money or other belongings,” said one source.“However the fact these people claimed to be from social services does raise the real fear that they may have been there to try to snatch a child. There is no hard evidence for this whatsoever, but it is something that will be looked at.“The reality is that we just don’t know and until these people are caught, the real motive won’t be known.” The issue was also raised on the Shaun Doherty Show on Highland Radio earlier today when a similar claim was made.Garda sources say that no-one should let any stranger into their home without proper identification and without checking the veracity of the claims being made.And social work insiders also say that if the case was genuine, their professional inspectors would not have behaved in the manner described in the reported cases.“We don’t burst into people’s homes, threatening them,” said one senior official tonight.“Even in extreme cases, there would usually be a court process beforehand and official documents involved. This appears to be a horrifying incident for the family concerned.” Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comREVEALED: CROOKS POSED AS SOCIAL SERVICES INSPECTORS was last modified: October 27th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:Co Donegal abduction attempt?crooksGardathieveslast_img read more
