Enyimba Hit Top Spot with Slim Win over Williamsville FC

first_imgWilliamsville almost replied midway through the first half as Irie Zan Bi sent a header on target and the ball took a nasty bounce off the churned turf in the penalty area – goalkeeper Fatau Dauda had to react sharply to tip it over the bar.Just past the half hour mark the visitors blew a great chance to draw level: a cross from the right picked out Folorunsho Sesan, who got up high and sent a downward header toward goal, but was unlucky to see the ball bounce just wide of the mark.WAC remained the better team through to halftime, but were unable to find an equaliser, while Enyimba suffered an injury blow to Ibenegbu Bartholomew, who was replaced by Chinedu Udeagha.The second half saw the People’s Elephant put in a more controlled display, though they were unable to find a second goal to truly put the game to bed, while the Ivorians struggled to make headway in attack against the excellent duo of Akabueze John and Nelson Ogbonnaya.Enyimba (1) 1 (Mustapha 7’)Williamsville 0Enyimba: Dauda, Utin, John, Ogbonnaya, Ojo, Oladapo, Bartholomew (Udeagha 45+1’), Mohammed, Joseph (Chekwube 82’), Mustapha, Bashir (Freedom 49’)Williamsville: Mandjui, Gbe, Yao, Dagrou (Mofosse 71’), Ettien, Kouassi Kouakou (Ouffoue 67’), Kouassi, Sesan (Ben 57’), Zan Bi, Kouadio Kouakou, YameogoShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Nigeria’s lone survival in continental club competition, Enyimba FC of Aba, moved to top of Group C of the CAF Confederation yesterday with a narrow 1-0 win over visiting Williamsville Athletic Club of Côte d’ Ivoire.It was the second consecutive win by the Nigerian side and the result sees the Aba team go top of the log on six points, though CARA Brazzaville could supplant them later tonight if they defeat Djoliba in Bamako.

High Hopes for Navesink River Oysters

first_imgBy Jay Cook |RED BANK – The future health of the Two Rivers now hinges upon a seasonal summertime delicacy.Plans to attract live oyster baby oyster larvae, known as spat, is the key for the next attempt at drastically cleaning the unhealthy Navesink River. Oysters are known for their ability to filter massive amounts of water each day, up to 50 gallons.“Oysters were a really critical part of this ecosystem for years and putting them back in, making them a vital part of the system again, is necessary for restoring the (river’s) health,” said Tim Dillingham, executive director of the American Littoral Society.On June 2, the Society launched Operation Oyster, a summer-long initiative where bags of recycled oyster shells will be hung along nearly 50 private docks spanning Red Bank to Rumson along the Navesink. If oyster spat does exist, then the society expects the grain-of-sand-sized larvae to latch onto the shell bags and begin growing.The success of Operation Oyster is reliant upon three different tenets of oyster examination: understanding their presence, where they exactly are and how many there might be.American Littoral Society’s executive director Tim Dillingham believes that Operation Oystercould eventually help bring oyster reefs back into the Navesink River.“We’re going to do as comprehensive a search that we can do,” Dillingham said.Through September, volunteers and society members will check the oyster shell bags once a month for any signs of growth. After each examination, a new bag will be hung. Once the project ends in September, nearly 200 bags will be collected from the research.And the end game?“Somewhere down the road, we would love to see reefs back,” Dillingham said about oyster reefs in the Navesink.While the project might seem like a longshot, there have been reports of Eastern Oyster activity in the Red Bank end of the river within the past year.Pim Van Hemmen, assistant director of the American Littoral Society, said a boater from the Monmouth Boat Club pulled a mushroom anchor up from the river in October and found a healthy Eastern Oyster attached. It was all the assurance that he and his organization needed to confidently move forward.“We know there are living oysters in the river,” Van Hemmen said. “The trick is, can we catch them?”It would certainly be a coup for both conservationists and homeowners alike who want to see the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers return to a healthy, stable level.Up until the mid-20th century, Eastern Oysters from the Navesink were harvested regularly and made their way to some of the most lavish New York City restaurants.Van Hemmen added that oysters were still a common resident of the Navesink River up until about the 1990s when two different diseases – MSX and Dermo –  knocked out reefs just beyond the Cooper’s Bridge, which connects Middletown to Red Bank.Later in 2008 and 2010, oyster reefs built by NY/NJ Baykeeper in the Navesink River and Keyport Harbor were dismantled by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection after concerns grew over illegal harvesting coupled with the spread of potentially unsafe shellfish.In recent years, pollution from feces and pesticide runoff has found its way into the rivers, and the conversation has shifted back to reinstalling the once-critical piece into the Two River ecosystem.Although Dillingham and Van Hemmen said the project was put in motion six to eight months ago, efforts to collect old oyster shells had been ongoing for quite some time.American Littoral Society staff members drop an oyster shell bag off of a private dock in Red Bank. The bags will rest above the riverbed so no silt or debris interferes with the study.With the help of Doug Douty, an American Littoral Society trustee and owner of the Lusty Lobster, a seafood wholesaler and distributor based in Highlands, thousands of oyster shells were recycled from about 20 restaurants along the Jersey Shore.Following the “Shuck it, Don’t Chuck It!” campaign, Douty provided area restaurants with buckets for restaurant staff to toss the used shells into after being bussed off tables.He was also the one driving around and picking them up.“If there’s something important we can do out here to clean up these waters, it benefits all of us,” Douty said.Douty continued, saying that once more restaurant owners find out about the project, “I think we’re going to get a lot more participants.”While the recycling campaign directly supplemented the Operation Oyster program, Dillingham said it also helped with another facet of conservation.“We wanted to learn from the historical mistakes we made, not throw the shell away, not have it end up in landfills, but rather put it back into the bays,” he said.By this weekend, the American Littoral Society expects to complete the first round of dropping oyster bags into the water.They hope it is the beginning of a long-term project to revive the health of the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers.“It’s going to be dependent on the folks in the communities to sustain it after we get it going,” Dillingham said.This article was first published in the June 8-June 15, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times. Join the American Littoral Society on Monday, June 19, from 6-7 p.m. to learn how you can play a role in Operation Oyster. The volunteer training session will be held at 2nd Jetty Seafood, 140 Ocean Avenue, Sea Bright, NJ. (MAP)This initial training session will focus on how citizen scientists can help monitor shell bags hanging from docks along the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers. The bags are being put out to discover if oysters still live in the rivers. The experiment is part of a long-term effort to improve water quality in the two rivers.Monitoring will be done in July, August and September.No prior experience is necessary. However, participants will need a car and/or a boat to travel to monitoring sites along the rivers. All other training materials will be provided at the event.Please RSVP by June 15. To reserve a spot at this training event or for more information, contact Littoral Society Education and Outreach Coordinator Julie Schumacher at 732-291-0055 or Julie@LittoralSociety.org.

Streets around OP blocked off as President meets with Cabinet

first_imgPresident David Granger is expected to meet with his Cabinet today to discuss the letter sent to him, by the Chair of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), and come up with a possible date for the constitutionally overdue General and Regional Elections.As a result of this, citizens were surprised by the Guyana Police Force after they blocked off, without prior notice, several roads leading to the Office of the President.The roads currently blocked off are:Vlissengen Road between North Road and Homestretch AvenueSouth Road between Oronoque and Vlissengen RoadCharlotte Street between Oronoque Street and Shiv Chanderpaul DriveShiv Chanderpaul DriveRegent Road between Shiv Chanderpaul Drive and Vlissengen RoadThe Police have since indicated that the surprise roadblock was as a result of threats of a protest in front of the President’s Office.The Opposition, Peoples Progressive Party, has pledged to continue protest action across the country to mount pressure on President Granger to make an elections proclamation.Elections were due on September 18, 2019, after the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) validated the December 21, 2018 motion of no-confidence against the APNU-AFC Coalition Government.The President said that he had not issued a date for elections because he was awaiting word from GECOM on the state of its readiness. However, GECOM Chair Justice Claudette Singh wrote to the President advising that the Commission would be ready by the end of February 2020. That letter has been sent since September 19, 2019, and five days after, the President is yet to declare a date for the constitutionally overdue elections.last_img read more

Hotel would tower over valley

first_imgThe project would include a pool in a trellis-covered patio area, a restaurant and a 24-hour coffee bar. Patel said he hopes to break ground this year on the hotel, which will take an estimated 18 months to complete. Patel is also pitching the idea of building a 55,000-square-foot conference center that would be connected by a covered walkway to the adjacent hotel. Palmdale officials are looking at a concept in which the conference center would be owned by the city and managed by the city or a contractor. City officials say the area known as the Trade and Commerce Center, where Patel’s hotel would be built, is a logical location for such a project. PALMDALE – An Indianapolis developer plans to erect a seven-story Embassy Suites hotel, which would be the tallest building in the Antelope Valley and could someday anchor a conference center. Bharat Patel, who has developed hotels in 13 states, plans to enter the California market with a 150-room hotel on AvenueP-4 between Trade Center Drive and Fifth Street West. The hotel would stand 100 feet tall at its highest point and cover about 140,000 to 150,000 square feet. Patel said the project’s cost has not been determined but that comparable hotels have cost $15million to $20million to build. “You are on a growth pattern for the next 15 to 20 years,” Patel said of the city. “You need a full-service hotel to be part of your economy.” “Yes, I think there’s a market for this kind of thing,” said Danny Roberts, executive director of the city’s redevelopment agency. If the city were to pursue such a project, officials would want a full-service hotel nearby, Roberts said. Regardless of whether the conference center is built, the city hopes the hotel will spur commercial and retail development in the adjoining area. The area, covering about 60acres, had been blocked from development since the 1990s by almost $40million in delinquent tax and assessment liens. The liens involved bonds sold in 1989 and 1990 to finance $63.9million worth of improvements such as roads, utilities, storm drains and landscaping in the area. The improvements were aimed at speeding up development, but they were completed just before a real estate slump in the Antelope Valley. The bonds were secured by land in the assessment districts. In the mid-1990s, bond payments began to be missed, and foreclosure proceedings began on dozens of parcels. Foreclosure sales have been unsuccessful because of the debt owed on the properties. City officials worked with S&Y Capital Group, a Los Angeles company, to clear off the debts and make the property marketable again. james.skeen@dailynews.com (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Pep challenges Yaya to win back City place

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure (C) takes part in a training session at the City Football Academy in Manchester, northwest England on September 12, 2017, on the eve of their Champions League group match against Feyenoord © AFP/File / Lindsey ParnabyMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Sep 15 – Pep Guardiola has challenged Yaya Toure to win back his place in the Manchester City team after the veteran midfielder’s recent absence from the squad.The Ivorian has not featured this season and was left out of the party that travelled to Rotterdam for the club’s impressive 4-0 win over Feyenoord in their opening Champions League group game on Wednesday. He also failed to make the bench for City’s 5-0 thumping of Liverpool last weekend.But Guardiola is urging the 34-year-old to knuckle down and prove he is worthy of a place in the team.“We need him. I need him and the team needs him. He was so important last season. He’ll be so important this season,” Guardiola told reporters in Manchester on Friday.Speculation about the midfielder’s future has been rife at the Etihad ever since Guardiola’s arrival, especially as the Catalan manager had allowed Toure to leave for City in 2010 while in charge of Barcelona.It looked like the same might happen at the beginning of Guardiola’s City tenure when Toure was frozen out of the first team as the relationship between manager and player soured over the outspoken comments of the midfielder’s controversial agent Dimitri Seluk.But despite the off-field drama, Toure made an impressive return, playing 31 times for City last season despite only returning to the team in mid-November.He was the only player out of contract in July to be given a new deal as a raft of senior squad members were released to spark a summer re-build.But after being left out of the past two squads, questions have again been asked about Toure’s future.But Guardiola, whose side travel to Watford on Saturday, has been quick to knock back any idea of a fallout and says the Ivorian will be a key figure for his team this season.“He’s a part of the group,” he said. “He’s a guy who I admire. What he’s done in his career, he’s an exceptional player.”Guardiola hinted ahead of Wednesday’s win in the Netherlands that he had spoken to Toure about why he had been omitted from the squad, blaming “sporting reasons” and insisting there had been no personal disagreement.With Ilkay Gundogan still recovering from a torn cruciate knee ligament, City’s only other fit central midfielders are Fernandinho and Fabian Delph.Guardiola is aware he will have to use the full extent of his squad as fixtures come thick and fast.“All the teams that play in Europe have a lot of games,” he said. “Every three days until the next international break — there are many, many games to play.“There are many games and I think everybody will be involved. It is so important, but I’m thinking of what is the best team to play for every game.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

From football icon to Liberia president- Weah

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea icon Didier Drogba from neighbouring Ivory Coast already sent Weah a congratulatory message.MONROVIA, Liberia, Dec 28 – George Weah emerged from Liberia’s slums to become a superstar footballer in the 1990s, and leveraged his status as a revered figure among the country’s young to be voted president.Weah easily beat Vice President Joseph Boakai in Tuesday’s presidential run-off, the culmination of 12 years spent building political credibility to match his huge popularity. “You know I’ve been in competitions –- tough ones too and I came out victorious. So I know Boakai cannot defeat me,” Weah said ahead of the vote. “I have the people on my side.”The first African player to win both FIFA’s World Player of the Year trophy and the Ballon d’Or, Weah was largely absent from Liberia during the 1989-2003 civil war period, playing for a string of top-flight European teams including Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan.After running unsuccessfully for the presidency in 2005, when he was defeated by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Weah says he has “gained experience” since becoming a senator in 2014.Another fruitless run for the vice-presidency on the ticket of presidential candidate Winston Tubman in 2011 brought him to further prominence among the nation’s voters, many of whom say this time it was “Weah’s turn”.Weah, 51, has put education, job creation and infrastructure at the centre of his platform — in line with Boakai — and had won an unassailable 61.5 percent of votes with more than 98 percent of votes counted as of Thursday evening.– Beloved by young and poor –Weah is set to replace incumbent Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who took over at the helm of Africa’s oldest republic in 2006.Younger voters overwhelmingly favour Weah, who is idolised in his country as “Mister George”.A member of the Kru ethnic group, Weah was raised by his grandmother on a reclaimed swamp in one of the worst slums of the capital Monrovia.“Grassroots citizens identify with George Weah, considering that he is close to their day-to-day experience,” explained Ibrahim Al-Bakri Nyei, a Liberian political analyst at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).His critics say the high school dropout, who later completed a degree, is unprepared to lead a country.“George Weah is a good, humble and respectful person that should not be given the Liberian presidency, because he is being controlled by an evil hand,” said Benoni Urey, a losing presidential candidate who switched his allegiance to Boakai.Urey and others say Weah is being manipulated by Sirleaf so she can continue to push an agenda when she steps down after 12 years in power.But many voters see a poor boy from the slums who made good against the odds.“I believe that whenever we give him a chance, he will be able to give a better Liberia to the youth and the homeless,” Andrew Janjay Johnson, a shoeshiner in a Monrovia market, told AFP.– ‘Vague’ platform –Ex-Chelsea and Man city Star, George Weah has won Liberia Presidential Elections. Weah was contesting the elections after his unsuccessful bid against outgoing president Ellen Johnson, the first female president in Africa.Critics also accuse Weah’s Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) of having too vague a political platform, and have challenged his long absences from the senate since being elected in a race he won over Sirleaf’s son.Weah has also fended off barbs over his vice-presidential pick, Jewel Howard-Taylor, the ex-wife of jailed former president and warlord Charles Taylor.Howard-Taylor however is also a respected senator in her own right, bringing him important votes in the key county of Bong, and along with Sirleaf is one of few powerful women in Liberian public life.Weah is married to Clar Weah, and his son, Timothy, signed a professional football contract with Paris Saint-Germain in July.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
