first_imgThe Town of Sinje in Grand Cape Mount County, Gawula District, was a scene of jubilation recently when an Australian mining giant, Tawana Resources Incorporated, announced the discovery of a huge deposit of iron ore in the region.The company, which is operating under the Mofe Creek Mining Exploration license, was granted a permit by the Ministry of Lands Mines and Energy (MLM&E) on December 13, 2012, to carry out exploration to determine the existence, quantity and quality of ore in a designated area.The company’s general manager, Fredrick Van Haute, told this newspaper that a total of 100 million metric tons of direct shipping ore was discovered during the period of exploration. Following the discovery, Mr. Haute said he would enter a mineral development agreement with the Government of Liberia after the period of exploration.He indicated that if all goes as planned, the mining process will commence in 2016 with the construction of a pilot plant capable of producing 1000 metric tons of ore. Mr. Haute pointed out that during this period the company will hire and train Liberians for large scale mining by the year 2017 at which time production will increase to 2.5 metric tons of ore per shipment.He assured Sinje residents of his company’s readiness to improve their lives.He indicated that the company will work along with existing health institutions in the country to deliver health services to employees and residents of the mining area.The Daily Observer made several attempts to contact Mr. Patrick Sendolo, Minister of Lands, Mines and Energy to obtain confirmation of the discovery but was unsuccessful and a text message to him went unanswered.Meanwhile, geologist and former Lands, Minds and Energy Minister, and former Grand Kru County Senator Cletus Segbe Wotorson, in a telephone conversation late last night confirmed that Sinje and the surrounding areas in Cape Mount are endowed with large deposits of iron ore. “I’m aware of the presence of Tawana Resources Incorporated in the country,” Senator Wotorson said, “and so the information about the discovery of large deposits of iron ore in Sinje is possible.”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_imgResidents of Coomacka and surrounding areas were today assured of an inter-agency approach to resolving several difficulties facing agricultural ventures within the Region 10 communities.At an outreach at the Coomacka Community Centre, Agriculture Minister, Noel Holder and team engaged the Region 10 residents, on concerns in relation to drainage and irrigation, pest control and markets for their produce. Responding to these, Minister Holder advised that the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA), the Guyana Livestock Development Authority (GLDA), the National Agricultural Research and Extension Institute (NAREI), and the Guyana Marketing Corporation (GMC) will work jointly to provide solutions to the identified problems.Recognising the importance of Region 10 as a gateway to several interior and hinterland communities, the Minister stressed that with climate change and the threats presented to the nation’s food sources on the coastland, the Government has decided to focus on the development of the Rupununi and the Intermediate Savannahs as new agricultural areas.Head of NAREI, Dr Oudho Homenauth distributing ants bate“Region 10 becomes a very critical and strategic region because if you think of it, Region 10 is connected to six of the 10 regions of this country. It is also the main area through which anyone moving inland through Guyana has to pass. You must pass through the Linden community to cross the Demerara river to get down to the south, to get to Brazil and other places,” the minister is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.Minister Holder said Brazil is an important potential market for Guyana. He explained that Manaus, with approximately 2.3M people, is a big area of export production for Brazil that is looking to get their produce to the European and other markets.“Currently, they have to travel 1,500 miles before a port. Linden is closer and therefore it’s in their interest to export things through Guyana and if they do that there is potential for a deep-water harbour and Linden is identified for that. Apart from the employment they will provide, they will also need supplies so they will import our rice, pork and many things that we will produce,” Minister Holder saidChief Executive Officer (CEO) of the NAREI, Dr Oudho Homenauth, outlined the various services available to the region through the agency’s local offices. He stressed the importance of seeking the right advice about the suitability of soils in the area for crop cultivation.Meanwhile, Head of the GLDA, Nigel Cumberbatch shared information on the opportunities available for livestock production in the region.“Given the kinds of livestock we have, I’m sure in a couple of years we can say to the mining camps that we can supply the quality of meat they currently import or purchase from Georgetown.”Referencing the ‘Topigs 40,’ swine breed imported by the Guyana Swine Producers’ Association with aid from the Ministry of Communities, Cumberbatch committed to having regional livestock personnel work with farmers to aid their swine and other production.In addition, the GLDA head noted that the nearby Coomacka Primary School was not conducting agriculture practical and promised to present the school with 100 chickens and feed, with the understanding that the school will be responsible for building the chicken coop. This offer was readily accepted by the Community Development Council Chairman, Dexter Harding and residents present.last_img read more

You’re all set! `IF we had a flag and spoke our own language – and some people say that we do – we’d have the seventh-largest economy in the world,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa thundered in a Washington, D.C., news conference Tuesday. “We want our fair share,” he added. “California, and particularly Southern California, has been an ATM for far too long. It’s time to recognize that we have been an engine not just for the state, but for the nation.” Amen, Brother Antonio! We haven’t heard that kind of righteous, rabble-rousing rhetoric since the days of the San Fernando Valley secession movement, when local leaders – and a certain newspaper known as the Voice of the Valley – called for a “fair share” for the overtaxed, underfunded engine of Los Angeles. Of course, the mayor was less than enthusiastic about the Valley’s attempt to get its fair share back then. But now that he’s on the short end of the fair-share stick, he’s become a true believer in political fairness. Good for him. Maybe if things don’t break Antonio’s way in Washington, he can lead a Southland secession campaign. We might even put his picture on the flag.last_img

first_imgWith such impeccable breeding, Dalevalley OTI J Lulu beat 24 other bovine beauties that travelled the length and breadth of the country to compete in the country’s most prestigious dairy livestock event which is sponsored by Baileys Irish Cream and its cream supplier Glanbia at the Virginia Show.‘Lulu’ was born six years ago in Donegal! Her current owners, Eugene Murphy and his son Sean are farmers from Ireland’s Southern-most county of Cork.Their prudent purchase of Lulu as a heifer-in-milk has paid dividends for they return to Cork with a 2,000 Euro cash prize from Baileys and the silver VGlania Virgina Mlk Products trophy in their possession.Competition judge, Iwan Morgan who is from Wales said: “It has been an ambition of mine to follow in my father’s footsteps and judge this competition. All of the cows on show here today were remarkable but the sheer power and capacity of the winner and, in particular, that incredible udder gave her the edge.”Hallow Lheros Indian Ink owned by Mervyn & Philip Jones from Gorey, Co. Wexford was declared Reserve Champion. Honourable Mention went to Co Wicklow farmer, John Hurley for his cow, Clonpaddin Goldwyn Fanta. Other prizes were awarded in specialist categories for breeders that travelled to Virginia from as far afield as Co Kerry and Co Down to compete including Richard Jones from Co Wexford and Roy Cromie of Co Donegal for a jointly owned Best Dry Cow winner, Ardnasalem Kite Lulu 2 a distant relative of the winner; the Co. Dublin farmers Mervyn Eager & Cyril Dowling took Best Heifer-in-Milk with Baldonnel Goldwyn Star; and father and daughter entrants, Ivan & Louise Robinson from Co. Down won Best Protein and Best Economic Breeding Index with Glaslough Charles Fancy.Minister of State for Agriculture, Shane McEntee T.D., presented the prizes alongside Alan Quane of R&A Bailey & Co and Glanbia Chairman Liam Herlihy. Minister McEntee said: “This is a much anticipated event among pedigree breeders and its success can be attributed to the fact that it rewards animals with good commercial milk production, outstanding appearance and show ring characteristics.”DDTV: DONEGAL COW IS NAMED BAILEYS BEST! was last modified: August 9th, 2011 by gregShare 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:baileys cow champion of ireland 2011donegallast_img read more

first_img “I think this race shows how much our school has improved,” Ruiz said. “We finished second-to-last last year and we just missed first today.” South Pasadena finished third with 63 points. The Tigers’ top runner, Mathieu Pons, finished in fifth (17:05). Temple City finished fourth with 74 points, while Monrovia and Blair rounded out the final two spots. The Wildcats’ top runner was junior Seth Tibbet, who finished sixth (17:07), while the Vikings were led by Mario Martinez (20:29). On the girls side, senior Morgan Sheppard secured the sweep for La Canada, as she finished first (19:14) by slowly pulling away from South Pasadena sophomore Chloe Fata (19:19). “I wasn’t sure I would be able to beat her,” Sheppard said of Fata. Not only had Fata beaten Sheppard at last Saturday’s Clovis Invitational, but the Tigers had finished higher than the Spartans in their last two races. “It feels good to beat them,” Sheppard said. “They are a tough team, and we just wanted to prove we could still win.” Overall, the Spartans defeated the Tigers 35-45. “It was pretty close,” Fata said. “Next time, we’ll just have to do a little better to beat them.” San Marino finished in third with 64 points while Temple City took fourth again with 82 points. The Titans top girl was senior Jasmine Quan-Liu (third place, 20:02). The Rams were lead by Susana Rodriguez (8th place, 20:37), while Blair’s Delphie Morales (19th place, 21:45) and Monrovia’s Hailee Cimmarusti (27th, 23:17) were the top runners for their respective schools. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Yet, for all the problems with which the Spartans entered Lacy Park, they were still able to walk away with both boys and girls varsity wins, thanks in part to some clutch efforts. Senior Chris Bruegge surprised the Rio Hondo League’s best by taking first place in 16 minutes, 46 seconds, edging out San Marino junior Alex Ruiz (16:49) and Temple City junior George Wang (16:50). SAN MARINO — For the first time in years, La Canada High School entered Thursday afternoon’s Rio Hondo League cross country meet vulnerable and maybe even beatable. The Spartans were without the services of their top boys varsity runner, Will Zentmyer, while the girls varsity team lacked its usual unbeatable swagger. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “This is my favorite course,” Bruegge said. “It’s pretty flat until you get to that hill near the finish. That’s where I was able to catch Alex and (George) and take the lead.” The race between Bruegge and Ruiz was almost a mirror image of the overall battle between both boys varsity teams. As Bruegge edged out Ruiz on the final turn, so did the Spartans just squeeze past the Titans 47-49. “I think this finish shows that our team is deep,” Bruegge said. “We would have done better with Will healthy, but this was a close race and we were able to pull it out.” While the Spartans’ boys team was expected to be challenged, few thought that it would be San Marino nipping at their heels. last_img read more
