Former champions Charlie Smith High were forced to battle hard to defeat a resolute Mona High 2-1 in a spirited ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup football game at Mona High playing field in St Andrew yesterday. Goals from Tyrick Reid and Kemar James in the 43rd and 88th minutes of play were enough to see off Mona’s second-half penalty. Goalscorer James credited his team’s determination as key to victory, despite being outplayed by Mona in the second half. “I feel good to score. I did it for the team and my school. It was great that we held on and fought to the end of the game, even though it was not a very easy game or good field to play on,” he told The Gleaner. It was James’ seventh goal in three seasons. “I hope to score more,” he stressed. While both teams attacked along the flanks and created scoring chances, the finishing was off target and Reid cleverly slipped onside to stab home a deft Omario Fisher cross, which deceived the Mona defence and the advancing Jordan Hoilett in goal, giving the visitors the first-half lead. STRONG SECOND HALF Mona, comfortable and fearless at home, began the second half strong, robbing Charlie Smith of space to play and dominated much of the ball possession. They broke the deadlock when unmarked substitute Njerie McKenzie, free as a bird, was brought down by goalkeeper Shamarley Clayton. Milton Harris stepped up for the home team and slotted home a cool penalty to the right of the goalkeeper to give them a fighting chance. Following the game, Charlie Smith’s coach, Jerome Waite, said his team – which was missing some players because of registration issues – will get better. “It was a good fight. We missed a couple of chances, but we will have some guys in for our next game, which will help us improve and play a better all-round game.”

As they left the field, the Indians were handed AL Central championship T-shirts, caps and swimming googles to put on before heading to their clubhouse. Moments later, champagne corks popped and the room was turned into a free-for-all of sudsy spray.Last year, the Indians celebrated their division, playoff and AL Championship Series wins on the road. Being at home made this one more special.“It never gets old,” said pitcher Josh Tomlin, who has been with the Indians since 2010. “This is why you play the game — to win. And to be able to celebrate victories like this or little milestones like this.”Kluber could be on his way to a second Cy Young Award win, following 2014′s. The right-hander is 10-1 in his last 10 starts.Despite missing nearly a month, he leads the league in wins (17), ERA (2.35), shutouts (3) and complete games (5).In the major statistical categories, Kluber trails only Boston’s Chris Sale, his closest competition for the pitching award, in strikeouts.“He’s a tough draw,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He’s a premier guy. The year he won the Cy Young is the way he looks now. He’s in the conversation again this year.”CENTER OF ATTENTIONJason Kipnis didn’t embarrass himself in the outfield. He didn’t do anything, really.The Indians’ two-time All-Star second baseman made his debut in center but didn’t have a chance. He had been on the disabled list since Aug. 6 with a hamstring injury.

Since releasing its controversial corruption report, which links several government officials to acts of corruption, the graft commission has been dragged into the local and national politics.Latest of them is the local and administrative politics of Sinoe County, Southeastern Liberia.For the first time since he was implicated by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) a few weeks ago, Sinoe County Superintendent Milton Teahjay took to the airwaves in an effort to fight back and save his integrity already dented by the release of LACC report.During a news conference yesterday in Monrovia, Teahjay in reaction to LACC’s allegation, dragged the commission into a local tribal, political and individual rivalry involving him and Senator Mobutu V. Nyenpan. Both men are certified senatorial candidates in the ensuing Special Senatorial Election slated for December 16, 2014.According to Teahjay, the sole reason he was accused of corruption is because of what he called the “political and academic alliance Sen. Nyenpan has with LACC Chairman Cllr. James Verdier.” Teahjay’s assertion was promptly dismissed by Nyenpan who called it a “fairytale.”According to the Sinoe Supt., Sen. Nyenpan was a classmate of Cllr. Verdier so the LACC boss was fronting for his friend. The Sinoe Senator in response rubbished the assertion and clarified that Cllr. Verdier was his professor and he (Nyenpan) never had any close relation with Cllr. Verdier. Teahjay accused LACC of “stonewalling,” adding that the Commission was not interested in substantial issues linking Nyenpan to massive corruption as presented to the graft commission, but LACC was rather interested in digging up issues that never existed.He accused Nyenpan of establishing “fake and bogus” construction companies that were awarded contracts for local projects in the county meant to defraud the system by not living up to the terms of the agreements.In response, Nyenpan dismissed Teahjay’s allegation and challenged him to provide any material evidence to support his claims.Said Nyenpan, “The companies have managements and they are right here. I know Teahjay, if he had any documents [to the contrary], he would spread them all around the place. I have no connection with (any) company, whatsoever. His claim is I recommended a company to him; does that stop you from applying due diligence and following the Public Procurement and Concession Commission (PPCC) laws? He’s talking spider story.” In defense of the expenditure of US$7,500 currently under investigation by LACC, Teahjay disclosed that he used US$5,000 of said amount to invest in the communities that host the Sinoe Rubber plantation for which the money was raised from rubber sold from the region.He disclosed that US$17,000 was generated from rubber sold after local authorities were successful in clearing the plantation of illicit economy migrants. According to him, the US$17,000 was used by him to resettle brokers who had initial investments in the plantation prior to government’s action.Mr. Teahjay, who is a senatorial candidate of the county, maintained that he was left with US$7,500 after settling the brokers and the rest was used for operations of the Emergency Response Police, who evicted the migrants from the plantation. Teahjay stated further that a written statement he (Teahjay) provided to LACC implicating Nyenpan to collecting US$421,800 did not interest the commission, but rather US$7,500 an assertion Nyenpan again dismissed, terming it as “lies and fabrications.”Teahjay indicated that it was unfortunate for the Commission to take interest in a bus LACC claimed he procured outside of the PPCC and not a pickup he procured with documents; stating that the Commission further proved its biases.“LACC will not go free with what they have created. I condemn the LACC report and believe it does not warrant listening to in this country,” Teahjay declared. He requested the Commission to immediately remove his name from the report or face a lawsuit.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A man who reportedly chopped his friend to the left side of his face when he was confronted about a stolen property was on Friday jailed for 24 months by City Magistrate Leron Daly.Neville Haynes admitted to carrying out the act on Colin Moore on April 27, 2018 following a heated argument at Longden Street, Georgetown.The court heard that on the day of the incident, the virtual complainant (VC) and Haynes, who are known to each other, along with a third person whose name was given as “Red Man”, were all conversing at a stall in the vicinity of America Street, Georgetown.The VC, who had his bicycle parked at the said stall, decided to take a nap, but upon waking noticed that his bicycle was missing along with Haynes and “Red Man”.He was able to catch up with “Red Man”, who informed him that Haynes had made off with his bicycle.Moore later confronted Haynes, which led to a heated argument. Haynes reportedly armed himself with a knife, chopping the VC to his face, causing him to receive some 27 stitches.When asked for an explanation by Magistrate Daly, Haynes simply replied, “That gon teach me not fuh thief from me friend.”As such, he was jailed for 24 months.
…as World Teachers’ Day celebratedThe Department of Education, Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica), hosted more than 300 teachers at an interfaith service and brunch, as part of World Teachers’ Day celebrations.The teachers who were honoured pose with REDO Tiffany Favourite-Harvey (centre)Teachers from as far as Mahaica to Soesdyke Highway attended the function, which was held at the Multipurpose Hall at Bladen Hall Multilateral School.The celebrations were held to express gratitude and to commend the teachers for their invaluable support and contributions in moulding the nation’s future leaders.Acting Regional Education Officer (REDO) Tiffany Favourite-Harvey stated that teachers in her region continued to give selflessly and urged those present to remain committed, disciplined and steadfast in their profession, adding that they would be rewarded in the near future.“Today’s occasion is specially organised to thank God for you, our teachers and to show respect and to pay reverence and gratitude to you for your selfless efforts while enriching the education system in the process. You have inspired our children to pursue further, and to prepare them to withstand obstacles that may confront their lives. However, it is expected that our teachers would continue to strive for perfection; as to your students, you are their heroes.”Meanwhile, Guyana Teachers’ Union (GTU) representative Collis Nicholson admonished those gathered to ensure that all children were prepared to learn and take their place in society. He stressed on the fact that teachers must receive effective training and support that equips them to respond to the needs of all students, including the most marginalised.He added that teachers’ shortages were hampering efforts to achieve equitable, inclusive, quality education for all. This, he noted, is particularly true in countries beset by widespread poverty and protracted crises and in regions where the youth population is growing rapidly.“To meet the demand for new teachers, education authorities often employ individuals with little or no training by lowering qualification requirements. Some teachers are asked to teach subjects for which they have no pedagogical training. Despite widespread recognition, teachers are key to achieving quality education for all; teaching is still not widely regarded as a valued profession. Its low prestige impedes efforts to recruit and retain teachers in rich and poor areas alike,” Nicholson argued.The GTU senior official noted that it was the Union’s view that the most marginalised and excluded children tend to be taught by the least experienced teachers, who may be on temporary contracts and receive no pre-service or in-service training.The senior Region Four GTU official declared that teachers must receive quality initial teacher education, effective induction into the profession, and have opportunities for high-quality professional development to hone their skills throughout their careers.“They must demonstrate to the public that teaching is a valued profession by providing decent salaries and improving working conditions for educators at all levels of education,” Nicholson stated.Also speaking at the function was Region Four Regional Executive Officer (REO) Pauline Lucas, who saluted the teachers for being a special set of people given their unbelievable love. She added that she respected their service as a symbol to the country and remained a supporter.The teachers were treated to a series of performances from some of their colleagues. The gathering also saw some teachers receiving awards for being the youngest and the oldest in the teaching profession.
