first_imgAlthough the weather was gloomy, the joy on the children’s faces as they paraded down the road helped brighten the day. Photos by Patrick Olivero After the “hunt,” the kids paraded down Hance Road and onto River Road, ending in front of the community firehouse. There participants were treated to donuts and juice as they waited for the results of the costume competition. The winners took home gift certificates to businesses in town. center_img FAIR HAVEN – Little superheroes, first responders, princesses and even the Statue of Liberty took to the streets as part of Fair Haven’s annual Halloween Egg Hunt and Costume Parade Sunday, Oct. 20.

Revenue Authority Begins Official Operations

first_imgThe Commissioner General of the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA), Madam Elfrieda Tamba, has called for full support from the newly combined Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP).According to Madam Tamba, the newly merged Ministry is cardinal to building effective tax administration in Liberia.Commissioner Tamba made the call Tuesday during the official launching into operation of the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA).The program was held at the MFDP’s head office on Broad Street, in Monrovia.She said support from the Ministry is needed, because, they  are directly in charge of tax policy as well as the divider of the national revenue. The LRA collects needed revenue on behalf of the government and people of Liberia.Madam Tamba told Minister Amara M. Konneh that her team (LRA) will deliver all necessary revenues to implement the national economic transformation.“Team LRA, can deliver for you as Minister of Finance, the revenues you need to implement the national economy, but the LRA needs your support to deliver the goods,” she emphasized.“Again, Minister Konneh, lets us continue working together to strengthen the partnership to improve revenues,” she said.The LRA Commissioner then called on her staff  transitioning into the new agency to prepare themselves for the task of lawfully and legitimately collecting  revenues for the benefit of the people of Liberia.Minister Konneh, in his intervention, said the launching of the LRA was a quest in building a vibrant, dynamic and professional public sector of Liberia.“This reform has been driven by a thoroughly organized and methodical process pre-dating our administration. We believe, a truly professionalized public sector is the most effective way to deliver quality services to our people, and the value of this exercise would be seen in increased efficiency, better organizational management, and improved service delivery, particularly in the fiscal and development policy direction of the country,” Finance Minister Konneh, who now heads the merged Finance and Planning entity, said.According to him, the policy idea behind the merger is to bring synergies to the government through the avoidance of duplications and gaps in the functions of both the Ministries of Finance, and Planning and Economic Affairs, thereby resulting in better allocation of human and financial resources and better service delivery.Minister Konneh, who is the nation’s Chief Financial Officer, was, however, quick to point out that with every transition, there are rough roads and bumpy rides.He added that as the GoL pursues this painful process of helping to streamline the government through the rollout of the MFDP, and the operationalization of the Liberia Revenue Authority, it remains conscious of its responsibility to treat its employees with respect and dignity.“We are opened to ideas and have broadened the consultative process from the very inception of this reform,” he pledged.The Acts creating both entities has provided a one-year window from its adoption to implementation of the law.Minister Konneh further assured the workforce of both entities that everything would be done in his powers to ensure the concerns and views of the workforce are considered. “We have done over the last few months through direct and indirect engagements, but we must remain focused on the broader objective of working to reform our public sector. We can’t afford to go back. ”According to him, the Act of 2013 which created the MFDP and LRA required that these two institutions be made operational within 12 months as of the signing of the acts.He said since the Acts were all signed into Law by the President on September 19 and 23, 2013 respectively, both institutions are to come into effective no later than September 2014.“However, because of the nature of revenue collections, the Management team decided that it would make sense to ensure that the LRA started on July 1, 2014 since that is the beginning of the budget year. Management decided also that it would make sense, if possible, for the MFPD to also start on said date,” he said.According to the Minister, the Law is clear that all employees (not only civil servants) of the Department of Revenue will be transferred to the LRA for a period of 12 months during which time they will be required to complete application formalities. “The Law is clear that if these employees apply for a position with the LRA, they shall be granted employment.”However, in the event that an employee decides not to apply within the 12 months, the Law requires that they return to the Civil Service Agency (CSA) for reassignment.The MFDP boss said consistent with these provisions of the Law, it has forwarded the names of all employees of the Department of Revenue to LRA through the CSA and added that separate memos have also been served each employees of the Department of Revenue informing them that as of July 1, 2014, they are to report to the LRA for assignment and begin application formalities.“By the LRA Act, on the date that LRA begins operations, the Department of Revenue will cease to exist. However, few staff of the Department will remain in holder positions for the proposed Department of Fiscal Affairs, which is part of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning,” he explained.“It is important to note that the Minister of Finance and Development Planning has general supervision and direction of the LRA,” Min. Konneh said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Students reach out to kids in Tanzania

first_imgNEWHALL – A trip to the tax man led Jody Liss-Monteleone all the way to Africa. Liss-Monteleone never got on a plane or a boat to cross the Atlantic – her journey was a spiritual one. “My tax man told me his daughter was in Tanzania, and she was receiving donations for the orphanage she was working with,” Liss-Monteleone said. As the conversation continued, the Placerita Junior High School counselor became more and more touched by the stories of these children’s needs. Most of their parents had died of AIDS, and most relatives who weren’t infected were too poor to care for the youths. Liss-Monteleone immediately thought of her students at Placerita, a culturally and economically diverse school, and decided to hold a drive for school supplies. “We want our kids to become caring individuals and to learn how to help others less fortunate than ourselves,” she said. “Placerita has a very wealthy area and a very poor one, but I thought if everyone brings in $1 worth of supplies, we can do this.” Posting pictures of the kids at the orphanage and dropping off clear bins in first-period classrooms, she hoped kids would respond. But Liss-Monteleone quickly saw the empty bins fill up with markers and folders, pencils, pens and glue. “At first I was a little worried, but wow! This exceeded my expectations.” Anthony Fernandez, an eighth-grader, said the project was touching to him because it let him affect the lives of children thousands of miles away. “Some of these people don’t even have houses, but if they have supplies to get them an education, then they can have a better future,” Fernandez said. For seventh-grade English teacher Cheryl McCall, it was a nice way to remind her kids about the gift of giving. “We clapped every time someone brought in some supplies to celebrate giving,” McCall said. “It’s nice, kids care.” connie.llanos@dailynews.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ALL COUNTY LEAGUE GAA ROUND-UP: GOOD OPENING DAY WINS FOR ST MICHAEL’S, GLENSWILLY, KILCAR AND NAOMH MUIRE

first_imgDungloe’s Paul McGarvey gets close to Michael Murphy.The Donegal GAA club season got underway today and a number of teams started their respective league campaigns with impressive victories. With the first-round of games in the Donegal SFC provisionally scheduled for the weekend after Donegal’s Ulster championship clash with Tyrone, most teams are keen to hit the ground running. Division Two champions Dungloe faced a difficult away trip to Glenswilly but Tony Boyle’s side were more than a match for the current Donegal SFC holders.Glenswilly eventually ran out five point winners in the end but they were given a scare by Dungloe who netted twice.Dungloe have a very young side but they played some lovely football throughout but were undone by a combination of naïve defending and poor finishing.Dungloe were guilty of wasting some good opportunities to press on when they led Glenswilly by three points in the second-half. Conor Greene scored Dungloe’s opening goal and then and a long direct ball inside by David McCarron was misjudged by the Glenswilly keeper and the ball ended up in the back of the net.Glenswilly used their experience to get over the line but Dungloe manager Tony Boyle will be relatively pleased with his side’s performance in their first game back in the top-flight.Final Score: Glenswilly 1-15 Dungloe 2-07St Michael’s produced a superb performance away to Four Masters and signalled their intent for the season ahead.Daniel McLaughlin delivered a brilliant performance and scored two excellent goals to set St Michael’s on their way.A goal each from Brian McLaughlin and Lee Martin McCarron ensured Eddie Harkin enjoyed an emphatic 14-point victory on his return as St Michael’s manager. Four Masters had no answer to the relentless onslaught of St Michael’s and they were completely blown away.St Michael’s were missing Colm McFadden and Michael McGinley and again will be expected to be in the mix for honours in the Donegal SFC.Final Score: Four Masters  0-07 St Michael’s 4-09Naomh Muire took maximum points in a game which went right down to the wire here today in the Banks. Naomh Muire got off to the best possible start with a Hugh ‘The Yank’ Boyle goal in the first minute followed by two early points by Jack O Brien and Harry Harden before a Shaun ‘The Yank’ Boyle goal after the Bundoran keeper had saved his penalty set up the home side.Bundoran to their credit fought back into the game with some fine scores against the wind and with County Minor Jamie Brennan menacing up front.At half-time Bundoran had reduced the deficit to two points with a score of 2-04 to 0-08.The second half was always going to be tough for Naomh Muire playing into a swirling wind.Naomh Muire battled their way with less possession limiting Bundoran’s scores at a time they had both a one man and a strong wind advantage.Two crucial scores in the last five minutes from frees by Harry Harden seemed to break the spirit of the visiting Bundoran side and a lift in effort by Naomh Muire in the closing minutes where the defence played their committed part.Supporters welcomed the sound of Martin Coll’s whistle at the end of an enthralling game.Final Score: Naomh Muire 2-07 Bundoran 0-12Sean MacCumhaill’s made the trip to Páirc Taobhoige to take on local rivals Glenfin in a massive local derby to start off the season.In a game where both teams were always within touching distance of each other it was the Twin Towns side determination which eventually won out by a single point.This was a good team performance and a good start to the league can only help spur MacCumhaills on for the next game.Darren O’Leary opened the scoring with a free before the home team went on to equalise with a point of their own. Darren O’Leary was impressive from dead ball situations and for the first half they relied on these for the majority of the scores. Both teams traded points and a run at the Glenfin goal by Darren O’Leary looked hopeful until he was smothered out.In a nice little spell before the end of the first half MacCumhaills applied all the pressure but 3 shots from play went wide. Another free was converted by Darren O’Leary and both teams went into half-time level.Half-Time Score: Glenfin – 0-05 Sean Mac Cumhaill’s – 0-05MacCumhaills opened the second half with another O’Leary point which this time was from play to put the Twin Towns side ahead.However this lead was short lived as a Glenfin point from play brought the two teams level once again to 6 points apiece. The home team then asserted some dominance to score the next 2 points and give them a cushion.Another O’Leary free brought MacCumhaills back in the game and in what could only be described as a powerful effort drifted in by Shane Duffy to level the game again.Both teams traded scores again with Rory Dunleavy cancelling out the Glenfin score. In the game’s defining moment good attacking play from MacCumhaill’s and a pin point pass from Marty O’Reilly to his brother Steven seen his effort beat the home goalkeeper and roll into the back of the net to put MacCumhaill’s into a 1-09 to 0.09 lead.The home team hit back with another 3 efforts which seen 2 go over the bar to cut the lead back to 1 point. Goal scorer Steven O’Reilly responded with another point from play and a Glenfin free was put over the bar to end the game.Full-Time Score: Glenfin 0-12 Sean Mac Cumhaill’s – 1-10Sean MacCumhaills: Eoin Gallen, Gerard Grindle, Marty Gallagher, Eoghan Wright, Shane Duffy, Gary Dunnion, Joe Dunnion, Pat McNulty, Steven O’Reilly, Gary McGirr, Barney Laverty, Chris Gallen, Rory Dunleavy, Darren O’Leary, Martin O’ReillySubs: Stephen Mulligan for Chris GallenScorers for MacCumhaills: Darren O’Leary (0-07), Steven O’Reilly (1-01), Shane Duffy (0-01), Rory Dunleavy (0-01)Other results:All-County League Division OneKilcar 1-16 Ardara 1-09Malin 2-09 Naomh Conaill 3-12 Gaoth Dobhair 3-09 St Eunan’s 0-09 All-County League Division TwoTermon 4-10 Killybegs 1-07Fanad Gaels 3-09 Cloughaneely 2-07ALL COUNTY LEAGUE GAA ROUND-UP: GOOD OPENING DAY WINS FOR ST MICHAEL’S, GLENSWILLY, KILCAR AND NAOMH MUIRE was last modified: March 22nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:All-County LeaguedonegalGAAnewsSportlast_img read more

‘GARDA WITH NO CAR CASE’ RAISED IN THE DAIL

first_imgDONEGAL TD Padraig Mac Lochlainn today challenged Taoiseach Enda Kenny over a case here where a burglary victim had to give a Garda a lift to the crime scene.Deputy Mac Lochlainn used leaders questions in the Dail today to raise the issue.Taoiseach Mr Kenny claimed new rosters had increased contact between Gardai and rural communities. But Deputy Mac Lochlainn also raised the issue of crime scenes not being visited by investigating Gardai due to lack of personnel.On the Newtowncunningham incident – where the woman gave a Garda a lift – the Sinn Fein TD told Mr Kenny: “We now have a situation where all warnings from the Garda Representatives Association are coming through on the ground.“There isn’t enough personnel and there aren’t enough vehicles to provide back- up to our communities.”He asked the Taoiseach to urgently review the impact of the cuts with Justice Minister Alan Shatter and for him to meet the Garda commissioner and put in place a plan which will reassure communities in Border areas. Mr Kenny could be seen smirking as he got to his feet to respond and used the opportunity to have a go at Sinn Fein.“I am taken by your new found concern for the Gardai and law and order and for the welfare of our citizens. I commend you for your comments,” said the Taoiseach.He said the new rosters were working well and it is being monitored.Mr Kenny then said he recalled an incident many years ago where a Garda commandeered a vehicle to go on a poitin raid in north Donegal. He said those days were now gone.He said he was aware that many Garda cars were reaching the end of their lives but he promised to raise the Co Donegal incident with Mr Shatter and Gardai. Deputy Mac Lochlainn said he would pass the details to Mr Kenny but the Donegal TD referred to comments from the GRA who claim the new rosters would increase crime.“The guards on the ground – no-one blames them – but there is a problem here,” he said.He claimed one in five Garda vehicles have been withdrawn and not replaced and accused Minister Shatter of “passing the buck” over the issue.Mr Kenny referred to Sinn Fein’s support for the closure of 36 PSNI stations in the North and defended Minister Shatter. “I am not glossing over anything here,” insisted the Taoiseach, who went on to praise the work of Gardai.He said the GRA were “never quiet” and what they had to say was always considered by the Minister.‘GARDA WITH NO CAR CASE’ RAISED IN THE DAIL was last modified: July 4th, 2012 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)last_img read more

Bill may revive Wilshire subway

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Villaraigosa, who is aggressively pursuing a mass-transit system in West Los Angeles, welcomed the congressman’s move. “Although this is one step in a process of many, it brings us closer to Mayor Villaraigosa’s goal of giving the city of Los Angeles a subway to the sea,” spokesman Darryl Ryan said. Waxman sponsored legislation that banned federal funding for Wilshire Boulevard subway construction after a 1985 methane-gas explosion at a Ross Dress for Less store in the Fairfax District, near the route of the subway. Subway construction continued into Hollywood, using local sales tax dollars until 1998, when the costs spiraled out of control and county Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky persuaded Los Angeles County voters to ban local dollars from being used, essentially halting any further subway construction. But Waxman reversed himself after a panel of experts – including members he appointed – said building and operating a subway under Wilshire’s dangerous gas zones would be pose no greater risk than other subways in the United States. Almost 20 years after Rep. Henry Waxman helped shut down construction of a subway under Wilshire Boulevard, he introduced a bill Friday to lift his previous prohibition on tunneling in that corridor. Waxman’s legislation comes after Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced this week that experts had determined that workers could safely build a subway through once-dangerous methane-gas zones. “I will make lifting the prohibition a priority,” Waxman, D-Los Angeles, said in a statement. “I am very pleased with the panel’s unanimous finding that tunneling can now be done safely.” Waxman’s bill is not likely to be heard until early next year. Wilshire Boulevard is considered the busiest corridor in the county, with buses running every 90 seconds during rush hour, and a top choice at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for a subway route. But subways are expensive – at an estimated $300 million per mile – and federal funding would be essential. The next three-mile leg on Wilshire would cost $1 billion. Taking it to the sea would cost billions more. Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, a longtime subway foe, said he would work with members of Congress to keep the prohibition in place. “The taxpayers overwhelmingly killed the costly, disruptive subway. Now the self-serving interests are trying to pull the wooden stakes from its heart,” he said.
