By J. Burgess CarterNational Elections Commission Chairman Jerome Korkoya has assured Plenary of the Senate that names and photos of all legally registered Liberians will be on the final registration roll, therefore there was no need for alarm.The embattled NEC boss said his commission has resolved to conduct one of the best elections in recent history and noted that what is currently happening with regard to the voters’ registration exhibition does not amount to massive irregularities as is being perceived by some citizens.Chairman Korkoya asserted that the most important component of every election worldwide is getting voters’ registration because if the voters’ registration has a problem, it is likely the election process will also have a problem. He warned that what is happening now is not unique to Liberia. “Elections the world over are never one hundred percent problem-free, but we assure the citizenry that we will do everything to avoid errors that can undermine the credibility of the process.”The appearance of the NEC boss in the Senate Chambers was prompted by a letter from Margibi County Senator Oscar Cooper, who informed his colleagues of reports of massive irregularities in the elections process, especially the just-ended nationwide voters’ registration roll exhibition.During the marathon hearing attended by 21 Senators, Cllr. Korkoya disclosed that the Commission has so far received 13,000 complaints from individuals whose names or photos did not appear on the registration roll; but clarified that although the names of those individuals did not officially appear, the Commission’s database has already made the necessary corrections.He maintained that his recent statement assuring that legally registered Liberians who possess voter cards with names, not on the voters roll will be allowed to vote was made because it was not a major issue that could not be corrected.“Let me emphasize that you will get nothing short of free, fair, transparent and credible elections; there is no problem that cannot be resolved,” Korkoya assured the Plenary.Before being discharged by Plenary, Cllr. Korkoya further assured them that magistrates at the various NEC Centers are working around the clock to ensure that when the final voters roll is exhibited, names and photos of every registered Liberian voter will be available for the process of voting.Meanwhile, both Senator Cooper and Cllr. Korkoya, who appeared to have kicked off the proceedings, seemed to have resolved their misgivings, with the Margibi lawmaker admonishing the NEC boss to live up to his assurances of free and credible elections.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – NEC chairman, Cllr.

The search is on for a sixteen-year-old boy who reportedly escaped from the Juvenile Holding Centre, Sophia, Greater Georgetown last week.According to the Public Security Ministry in a statement on Wednesday, the teen, Leon Patterson, was discovered missing on August 9 when his mother went to visit him at the facility during the 12:00h to 13:00h visiting period.An immediate search of the premises and surrounding areas was done for the young man but it proved futile. Security cameras were reviewed which revealed that one juvenile was emptying garbage, while the escapee was seen walking towards the admin building unaccompanied.Another camera showed the teenager later exiting the admin building through the back door.The relevant authorities were immediately informed and the facility was visited by A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) Commander Marlon Chapman and other officers of the Guyana Police Force where they took statements. In addition, a search of the Sophia area was immediately done by Police ranks from A and C Divisions but the teenager was nowhere to be found.

Nevertheless, authorities are asking anyone with information that can lead to the recapture of 16-year-old Leon Patterson to contact the nearest Police Station.

A West Donegal based independent community activist has called for Donegal County Council to establish a training programme to instruct volunteers on the best methods of fighting gorse fires.The fire burns close to Loughanure villageHis comments come in the wake of gorse fires in the Dungloe and Rosses area this week.Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig comments come in the wake of numerous gorse fires breaking out in recent days after the current dry spell. “Given the increase in gorse fires throughout County Donegal in recent years, some of which have done considerable damage I think the County Council, in conjunction with the Fire Service, should give serious consideration to launching a training programme which would give local volunteers the know-how to fight such fires.“Fires such as the ones we have seen recently in the Dungloe, Gweedore and Keadue areas could quickly be brought under control if people who live local to the fire were properly trained in dealing with an event such as a gorse fire.“These fires can cause widespread disruption and huge environmental damage if they manage to get out of control, as we have seen especially in 2011. When this happens the fire service are then stretched to their operational capacity and this in turn puts lives at risk. Having the fire service tied up in fighting gorse fires is also a huge drain to the tax payer.”He concluded, “If we had local women and men properly trained to operate volunteer units to fight gorse fires they then could make the assessment if they can bring the fires under control themselves and whether or not the fire service need to be called out. In the interests of the community, the environment and most importantly human lives, I think it is incumbent upon Donegal County Council to give this serious consideration.” CALL MADE FOR TRAINING OF VOLUNTEERS TO FIGHT GORSE FIRES was last modified: April 3rd, 2013 by StephenShare 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:gorsefiresvolunteers
Edward R. Roybal, the longtime California congressman who mentored a generation of Hispanic leaders, was mourned Monday by elected officials and hundreds of other people at his funeral. “We’re all here on the shoulders of this great man,” said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who credited Roybal for his success and that of other local leaders. Roybal died Oct. 25 at age 89. Mariachis serenaded a procession of mourners into the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. Those paying their respects included House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, and Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca.

He was also a founding member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in 1976.
