first_img “We have to go out there and fight hard for the three points against Boys’ Town. We are aware of Boys’ Town’s history and it won’t be an easy win. We don’t watch where they are in the standings. It’s about going there to execute the team plan,” the head coach added. Jamalco’s diminutive midfielder Rohan Richards is the competition’s top scorer on four goals. However, Johnson says that other players have been contributing as it is about team effort. “He (Richards) is in good form, but the focus is on team. We expect other players to score goals as well, moving forward,” he said. Richards apart, former Boys’ Town striker AndrÈ Dawson and Sean Coleman are expected to give support. Boys’ Town’s coach Andrew Price says the four losses came with mostly young players, and with the senior players like Garfield Gillespie, Wayne Ellis, Daemion Benjamin, and Asrick Samuels back in the squad after returning from the United States of America, there has been renewed energy. “We started preseason late, and like other clubs, have suffered from senior players being overseas during the summer. Now we have them back, and they will add to the young talents that are in the squad. Shemar Nicholson has been shouldering the goalscoring on three goals. He will get quality support come Sunday,” Price disclosed. “We are aware that Jamalco is a quality team, but we will go there to execute and, hopefully, come away with a positive result,” Price also said. In another game of high interest, MBU and Humble Lion will clash in what should be a close encounter. Jamalco FC will look to continue their impressive form when they face Boys’ Town FC in match day six of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) today at Barbican Complex in St Andrew. Kick-off time is 3 p.m. The Jamalco team is having a wonderful start to life in top-flight football and is leading the 12-team league on nine points, the same as reigning champions Montego Bay United (MBU) and Humble Lion. However, hot debutants Jamalco enjoy a superior goal difference. On the other hand, seasoned Boys’ Town are struggling without a point on the board after four games played by the team. With that scenario, the matchup, to be live on Television Jamaica, is of high interest. All eyes will be focused on Jamalco to see whether they can build on the fine start, while Boys’ Town will look to score their first points of the new season. Jamalco’s head coach Rayon Johnson says that it is all about preparation for each game. “It all boils down to team preparation. We have to keep the team focused as we can’t get carried away by the start to the competition,” Johnson said during the RSPL weekly press conference at Red Stripe last Thursday morning. – 3 p.m.: Boys’ Town vs Jamalco at Barbican Complex – 3:30 p.m.: Tivoli Gardens vs Maverley-Hughenden at Edward Seaga Complex – 3:30 p.m.: Humble Lion vs Montego Bay United at Effortville Community Centre in May Pen, Clarendon – 3:30 p.m.: FC Reno vs UWI at Frome Complex in Westmoreland – 6 p.m.: Arnett Gardens vs Portmore United at Anthony Spaulding Complex – 7 p.m.: Harbour View vs Waterhouse at Harbour View Stadium Today’s games WON’T BE EASYlast_img read more

first_imgA new book chronicling the personal experiences of one of Liberia’s civil war survivors has been launched. The author, Dr. Dwaboyea Evelyn S. Kandakai, last weekend presented to the public her newly published book entitled, “Facing the Sun.”The book launching which took place at the author’s home in Brewerville City, outside Monrovia was spearheaded by three of the country’s literary personalities, the president of Stella Maris Polytechnic, Sister Mary Laurene Browne, former Deputy Minister for Instruction at the Ministry of Education Hawa Goll-Kotchi and Mr. Kenneth Y. Best, Publisher of the Daily Observer newspaper. “Facing the Sun,” is Dr. Kandakai’s memoire reflecting on Liberia’s 14 year civil conflict, which in particular cruelly took away the life of her father, Albert White.Mr. Best called on Liberians to rise to the challenge of writing about their own experiences, history and culture, rather than always leaving the task to foreigners who often distort the history and values of the country. “Liberians, including many educated ones, are very lazy at writing and reading contents depicting the realities connected to their own nation they claim to love,” Mr. Best said.He said the Liberian Observer Corporation (LOC), which published “Facing the Sun,” will keep copies of the book in its library for visitors and will also help promote the sale of the book through the Daily Observer Newspaper at no cost to the author.Buttressing Mr. Best’s call for Liberians to write their own history, Sister Mary Laurene Browne said there is no need for anyone to say that not much is available to write about. “Think about your day to day experiences. Reflect on general events you were once part of and study your origin. You will come to realize that even throughout history your pen or any other medium can compile all there is,” Sister Laurene suggested. The Rector of the St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Fr. A-Too Williams said Dr. Kandakai’s legacy will be an indelible imprint for posterity.‘’In trauma healing it is good for one who is affected to tell his or her whole story and this, I am convinced, Dr. Kandakai has done,’’ Fr. Williams said. He interpreted ‘’Facing the Sun’’ as being willing to face life’s challenges.In response, Dr. Kandakai said praises for her book belong to God, who made it possible for her to have such an accomplishment in addition to her other works-the ‘’Village Son’’ and ‘’Normal Times,’’ a collection of poems.“I dedicate this work to my grandparents Nathaniel and Clara Cassell who were very instrumental in my upbringing and education, along with my siblings,’’ she said. ‘’If I think about the wars fought in our country and furthermore reflect on the accounts of my sister, the late Wanasue, depicting how our father was cruelly tied, laid on his back, asked to look directly at the sun and subsequently killed, I shed tears,’’ she said. Dr. Kandakai, a former Education Minister, meanwhile called on all illiterate persons in the Brewerville area to take advantage of her primary school’s adult literacy program so that they may learn to read and write.Dr. Kandakai said the reading room at the Nathaniel and Clara Cassell Learning Center which is open from 10a.m. to 5p.m. Monday to Friday has many books and everyone is encouraged to stop by and make use of them. She commended all who supported her, most especially the LOC for printing the book.Facing the Sun is now on sale at US$10.

first_imgGLENDALE – They roll down the street in stealthy silence and run on juice from your wall socket, and for Rob Thomas, they’re the antidote to the ills of high gas prices and petroleum dependency. “I want to go completely off carbon,” Thomas said as he inspected an electric car at EnVironmental Motors, one of the only showrooms in the San Fernando Valley dedicated to the sale of electric cars. “I’m the guy who’s installing solar panels on my roof, and I want to plug it into that.” While most people might be tempted to install fluorescent light bulbs or check their tire pressure after watching former Vice President Al Gore’s global warming documentary, Taryn Sokolow, director of the e-car venture, said the film motivated her to revive the greener side of the family business. Her father owns Colonial Honda next door and first dealt in electrics six years ago. But that side business had been quiet until recently. “Before I saw that movie, I didn’t know how bad it really was,” said Sokolow, 25. “I didn’t know how deep (global warming) really went. … I’m in a unique position to do something.” The dealership, which held its grand opening this week, stocks vehicles with fanciful nameplates such as Santa Rosa-based ZAP (Zero Air Pollution) and ZENN (Zero Emission No Noise), from Toronto-based Feel Good Cars. Some resemble your common compact hatchback, but with the rattle of a gasoline engine muffled to a soft buzz from the electric motor. Others, like ZAP’s Xebra line of three-wheel sedans and pickups, are guaranteed to turn heads as much as record high gas prices do. The national average for a gallon of unleaded regular exceeded $3 this week, while hitting $3.45 locally, according to AAA. “The record just keep going up and up with gas prices,” said ZAP CEO Steve Schneider. “I think that consumers globally need to have choice.” Still, they might be a tough sell in sprawling Southern California – the Xebra’s top speed is 40 mph, with a range of up to 25 miles between charges. At $10,000, it’s best used to supplement a gas-powered vehicle for local errands. It’s those limitations that will keep electrics at novelty status, said Jim Hossack, senior consultant with Tustin-based automotive analyst AutoPacific. “In terms of high-volume application … all pure electric cars (are) probably nonviable,” he said. “At the same time, L.A. is a big place and there are lots of opportunities for a lot of unusual uses. Can you sell 100 a year? Maybe. Can you sell 1,000? Then you’re pushing me.” Hence, Los Angeles is a key market for Schneider. “Automobiles in America represent more than just transportation,” he said. “It represents individualism. And there’s no other place than Los Angeles where individualism speaks out in an automobile. “If gas is $10 a gallon, you will still see Hummers driving here in L.A. There will always be demand in one spectrum. We’re just in the other end.” Meanwhile, newer electric models with more power and range are on the drawing board, and are at least 1 1/2 years away from market. That’s why electrics at EnVironmental Motors share the Glendale lot with a few Smart cars, those ultra-compact, freeway-safe gasoline vehicles that scream Euro-chic and get about 40 mpg. “We want to get users familiar with electric technology,” Sokolow said. “When they start coming out, we hope that our name is already out there and already associated with electric vehicles, so it will be an easy segue to freeway-speed electrics.” eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

More than five hours after the shooting spree, Tate said officers spotted the suspect, who was identified as 24-year-old Kevin Lorenzo Collins, walking about a mile south of the church. Collins shot himself to death before police captured him, Tate said. DETROIT – A suspected gunman who opened fire with a shotgun during a church service Sunday morning killed a woman and wounded two people before he shot himself a mile away, police said. Investigators believe a domestic dispute led to the shooting at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church about 11 a.m., said Second Deputy Police Chief James Tate. A 9-year-old child, sitting near the unidentified woman who died, was hit in the hand by a buckshot pellet, Tate said. Police didn’t know the relationship of the pair. As the gunman fled the church, he critically shot a man trying to protect his wife from a carjacking attempt, officials said. Church members embraced each other after the gunman left and continued to pray as police started coming in, Armstrong said. “It was a lot of crying, a lot of hugging and a lot of praying,” she said. Church members then continued the service, Tate said. “They didn’t let this incident stop the reason why they came to church,” he said. “They came to worship.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
