Monrovia Rotary Club Brings Smiles to Needy institutions

Posted on by

first_imgThe Rotary Club of Monrovia recently embarked on its Annual Charity Basket project for 2014.  As one of its cornerstone community service activities, the Club has raised money to donate needed items to the elderly and less fortunate in Monrovia and its immediate environs. This year’s donations were made to two institutions, namely the E.S. Grant Mental Health Hospital and the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire home.Some of the items in this year’s donation include plastic buckets, tubs, bowls and cups, cleaning supplies, bales of clothing, mosquito nets, towels, slippers and toys among others with a total value of L$100,000 (one hundred thousand Liberian dollars).The Rotary Club of Monrovia is the local chapter of Rotary International, a community service organization established in 1905 to foster the ideals of service among professionals in their communities of work and life.  First established in Liberia in January 1964, the Club is proud to be celebrating 50 years of service in Liberia under Rotary’s global motto of “Service above Self.”Rotarians continue to set themselves apart by encouraging high ethical standards in their respective professions building goodwill and peace and— above all— dedicating their time to providing humanitarian services to fellow citizens.According to the Club’s Service Projects Chairperson, Monique Cooper-Liverpool, “Rotarians in Liberia have been involved in a variety of projects ranging from the provision of medical supplies and equipment to the JFK medical centre and pediatrics ward, the establishment of a reading room in Brewerville and a water/wells project bringing safe drinking water to 14 communities around greater Monrovia, to name a few. The Club’s flagship project has been the construction and furnishing of a 6 classroom school block in Ben Town community along the Marshall Highway.”The president of Rotary Club of Monrovia, Milton Weeks, noted, “With a membership of forty-five professionals both Liberian and international, the Rotary Club of Monrovia will continue to serve its community to the best of its ability.” Later this year, Liberia will host Rotary’s annual West African Projects Fair; bringing together hundreds of Rotarians from around the world to forge new project partnerships for development assistance and service projects across the region.  This is the first time Liberia will be hosting such a large international Rotary event. The Fair will be held in Monrovia from 29 October – 5 November, 2014.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Compliance with Taxation Is Easy When Citizens Get The Benefits It Yields

Posted on by

first_imgOn April 12, 2018 President George Weah launched the Mobile Tax Payment system, introduced by the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA). The newly-introduced mobile tax payment system is meant to make tax payment easier for taxpayers, especially small and medium taxpayers.It affords them the ability to remain wherever they are to comply with their national duty without the burden of standing hours in long queues to pay their taxes. “People do not want to give out their money, and this is clear without doubt even if I were not a member of the LRA. They will therefore want to escape this obligation,” LRA Deputy Commissioner for Technical Services, Decontee King-Sackie said.The mobile tax payment system, according to Mrs. Sackie, is meant to create the means to avoid all excuses that would influence noncompliance. During the launch at the Monrovia City Hall, President Weah, who performed the task of Chief Launcher, used the system to pay his tax, calling on all taxpayers to follow suit.Also pleasing to the ears of revenue authorities was President Weah’s statement, “We want development and there is money in the country, but not paid in taxes to government. Therefore, pay your taxes to develop our country.” Paying taxes is a national duty for all well-meaning citizens and residents living in the territorial confines of Liberia.Failing to comply is by law an offense against the nation. This is a duty, which Jesus Christ reminds us of in the Bible when he said, in response to questions bordering on payment of taxes to Rome, “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” Nevertheless, taxpayers too, having fulfilled their duty to the nation by paying their lawful taxes, expect that their taxes will be put to good use, such as developing the country.Liberians and foreign residents have been paying taxes; yet access to good roads even in the city of Monrovia remains a problem. Roads leading to the rest of the rural parts of the country lie in deplorable conditions. Electricity is still scarce such that the majority of taxpayers have no access to it. In fact, in many instances, they have to pay bribes in order to have services extended to them.Having operated for 12 unbroken years, taxpayers are yet to enjoy running water from the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC), although tax payers are obliged to pay what is called sales tax excluding water and sewer bills. Millions of dollars are generated from ports of entry including the Roberts International Airport (RIA) and the James Spriggs Payne airport.Yet these ports of entry remain in deplorable conditions, which convey the distinct impression of a nation left far behind. What a shame, for example, to have a narrow access road without lights leading to an international airport that generates revenue from customs duties.What would have happened if the Chinese had not intervened to erect a new airport terminal? Instead of tax being collected to meet the development needs of the country as should rightly be, it ends up as huge salaries and the purchase of luxury vehicles for government officials.In the face of this, most civil servants, like the police, for example, go underpaid, thus resulting into constant harassment of commercial drivers who are also taxpayers. Perhaps most disconcerting is the fact that huge amounts are paid annually to landlords for lease of properties to serve as government offices.Accordingly, the Liberian Government continues to remain a tenant in its own home. Monrovia as the largest city in the country stands out as one of the filthiest cities on the African continent without even public toilet facilities to serve a huge population.This particular situation causes people, especially men, to stand everywhere in the city to urinate without regard for sanitation or decency.Yes, Mr. President! It is good that people pay their taxes and follow your foot-steps in using the mobile tax payment to pay their taxes so that government will be able to meet its development agenda. However, the challenge is also yours to convince the taxpayers that you are prepared to use the people’s money for its intended purpose.How can they be convinced?They can be convinced by seeing the development that the money is intended for; good educational facilities, good roads, good health facilities, clean cities, electricity, running water, attractive salaries especially for teachers, nurses, doctors and state security, just to name a few.If Liberians and others would be convinced to comply with tax payment, then fight corruption vigorously, forego the purchase of expensive vehicles for your top officials, reduce gasoline slips and scratch cards for public officials, and ensure that senior officials of the three branches of government pay taxes.Last but not least is the issue of double taxation, which tax payers are experiencing in clearing goods from the Free Port of Monrovia. Importers have to pay inspection fees including duty assessed by BIVAC. The LRA cannot therefore justifiably claim that Customs officers are doing destination inspection of containers because importers are under declaring their cargo.The Liberian government has a standing agreement with the Bureaux Veritas (BIVAC) to conduct pre-shipment inspection of all goods destined for Liberia. If merchants/importers are under-declaring their cargo, the LRA should hold the BIVAC responsible by virtue of its contractual obligations to the Government of Liberia. In other words, if BIVAC is not living up to the terms of the agreement, then the agreement should be annulled in the interest of poor, suffering Liberians who are bearing the brunt of the tax burden.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Funds in RPV flow toward drains

Posted on by
first_imgUsing a camera mounted on a robotic buggy to inspect the drain in August, city engineers found a small piece from the top of the corrugated metal pipe had fallen off. “We thought it would just be localized repair,” said Ron Dragoo, the city’s senior engineer. “We run into this often in storm drains in this city.” The repair was estimated at $30,000 to clean the pipe and insert a polyethylene liner. But when workers accessed the storm drain 25 feet underground, they found the problem was beyond a quick patch. The whole bottom of the pipe was corroded and the soil beneath had eroded, creating a subterranean cavern that in time could become a sinkhole. The new estimate was $200,000 to replace or repair 130 feet of the Mossbank storm drain, which catches water from 15,000acres surrounding the canyon east of Silver Spur Road and north of Hawthorne Boulevard. The worst part of the pipe was found about 70 feet from residential property. EROSION: Problems with major section of pipe may be symbolic of larger issue that will be addressed on the November ballot. By Megan Bagdonas STAFF WRITER A deteriorated storm drain that’s become a veritable money pit for the city of Rancho Palos Verdes could be the bellwether for debate over two measures on the city’s November ballot. Dragoo said he was not surprised to find the pipe in such a state of neglect, since it was probably installed sometime in the late 1950s or early ’60s and then forgotten about until its recent inspection. “This type of corrugated metal pipe is good for about a 30-year period,” Dragoo said. The city of Rancho Palos Verdes is riddled with storm drains exceeding their expected life span. Engineers estimate more than 300 of the city’s storm drains are at least 40 years old, and, of those, 80 percent have decayed to where they could collapse and cause damage to nearby properties, according to a report by a citizens committee for Water Quality and Flood Protection. “The storm drain infrastructure in this city has not been maintained for decades, so it’s not business as usual,” Councilman Doug Stern said. “We have significant catching up to do.” Heavy winter rains in 2004 and 2005 caused major damage to public and private property in the city – including the sinkholes on Western Avenue and the flooding of McCarrel Canyon – and illustrated the need for proactive storm drain maintenance. In September 2005, voters narrowly passed via mail-in ballot an annual storm drain user fee for 80 percent of the residents – the other 20 percent are exempt because their households use storm drains owned by the county or neighboring cities. Property owners pay about $86 annually for 30 years and the revenue is put in a fund used only for storm drain repairs. Since the measure passed, the city has spent $4.3 million on what it calls “high priority storm drain repair projects,” according to the citizens report. This year, the user fee is expected to produce $1.2 million for the storm drain fund. However, two measures on the Nov. 6 ballot would alter the tax. Measure C, designed by the City Council, would shorten the user fee’s sunset to 10 years and make the citizen oversight committee permanent. Measure D, placed on the ballot by a citizen petition, would eliminate the user fee. “We really don’t need to have a user fee because the city of Rancho Palos Verdes has the money to fix our storm drains – that is, if (the city) decides to make infrastructure a priority,” said Don Reeves, a retired aerospace manager and candidate for City Council. Reeves said he put Measure D on the ballot because he believes the city has enough revenue in its reserves to fix the storm drains and, once the $450 million Terranea luxury resort development is completed, the city will have an even greater surplus in its coffers. “It would be fiscally irresponsible to discontinue the storm drain user fee,” Councilman Steve Wolowicz said. “If we wait for the revenue from a hotel that isn’t even built yet, we are likely to go under water.” Stern and Wolowicz said storm drains are a necessity and will likely be one of the most contentious issues in the upcoming election. “I know that it’s a lot more popular to build new things and have grand openings than to maintain the things that are already there,” Stern said. “Nobody is going to say, `Wow, I feel so good that I’m putting money into a storm drain system that I don’t ever see.’ But it would be reckless and irresponsible not to.” Council members contend the city’s reserves are for unforeseen circumstances or emergencies, not for repair work that will span decades and cost more than $30million. “We studied the storm drains and once we saw the enormity of the problem we knew there had to be extra funding for it. So it was voted on and passed by the people who were going to pay for it,” Wolowicz said. “If these funds are cut off, we will be left having to do this work with a relatively nominal amount of money and our reserves will go down.” Meanwhile, Dragoo says he and his crews are expecting to keep up a feverish pace of repairs until the first rains of the season. “You want to find these things in the summer so you have time to repair them,” the engineer said. “This city’s pipes are crotchety and disturbed, but like all older things, with a little bit of care we can bring them back to a working condition.” megan.bagdonas@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘Tomas Rosicky definitely has the hair for it’. But for what…?

Posted on by

first_img Nothing But Thieves Each week, a leading band or musician takes our very special talkSPORT Q&A. In the hot-seat today, Joe from Nothing But Thieves…1) What’s your favourite talkSPORT show and why?Before the band got a bit bigger I had loads of jobs, one of which was delivery driver. I used to listen to the match coverage on talkSPORT all the time. It made it much more bearable! 2) talkSPORT gives you your own show, what’s it’s called and what’s it about?Transfer Tips – I’m a sucker for all the transfer gossip, especially in the summer. I usually wind up getting in a routine of waking up and checking all the transfer news before I do anything else. 3) Who are the greatest football team in the land?“AND IT’S ARSENAL… ARSENAL FC… WE’RE BY FAR THE GREATEST TEAM… THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN…” (Three guesses who I support…?) 4) Who is the most rock ‘n’ roll player playing the beautiful game right now?I’m gonna have to go with Balotelli. Setting off fireworks in your own bathroom is a step up from the classic throwing the TV out of a hotel window, isn’t it? Mind you, Tomas Rosicky is a close second because I hear he loves metal and he definitely has the hair for it. 5) If you were put in charge of the pre-match entertainment for the FA Cup final at Wembley, what band do you want playing live?I would love another Led Zep reunion. Them playing Kashmir or Immigrant Song would be incredible and definitely set the crowd off. (But if anyone’s asking, we can move a few things around and make ourselves available).6) Who’s gonna sing the National Anthem?Kanye West. 7) What track are the players walking down the tunnel and onto the pitch to?I’ve always loved All My Life by Foo Fighters. Failing that, give them the Rocky theme tune. 8) What’s on the stereo in the dressing room to psyche the players up?You’re bombarding these players with a lot of music y’know… Let the lads concentrate for a bit, Arsenal have got another FA Cup to win!9) You build your own rock ‘n’ roll five-a-side team, who’s in it?I’ll have Serge from Kasabian – he must be in everyone’s team! It’s a shame I can’t choose Boris Johnson too, I could watch him play football for hours. I’d also go with Liam Gallagher, Damon Albarn (those two in a team together would provide a bit of in-team competition), Brian Johnson because he’s a huge Geordie and I wanna meet him. Oh, and I suppose me because it’d be a right laugh. 10) You get to pick one footballer to work as roadie with your band. Who is it and what do you have them doing?I actually met Wojciech Szcz?sny a couple of weeks ago and he was a top bloke, so probably him. He’s a big guy so I’d get him to help with all the loading in, and loading out. He’d be great for raising morale, too. 11) What’s going on with the band/for you as an artist at the moment? Our album’s all finished now and is due to come out in August. Festival season is coming up so just trying to get on as many of those as possible really! Then back out on our own tour around the album. 2015 for us is just about playing as many gigs as possible. Cheers for the interview! Check out Nothing But Thieves’ new single ‘Ban All Music’ 1last_img read more

Lancaster man gets eight years for shooting

Posted on by

first_img The argument turned into a fistfight and Matheu pulled out a gun and shot and killed Morua, homicide investigators said. The defendants are believed to be members of an East Los Angeles-based gang that has members in the Antelope Valley and was involved in drive-by shootings and other crimes in downtown Lancaster. Matheu was sentenced in April 2003 to a year in jail after pleading no contest to assault with a firearm in connection with two drive-by shootings. He previously had a conviction in 1999 of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Garcia was sentenced in 2000 to six years in prison for a burglary conviction and was released on parole in September 2003. Morua, 26, of Lancaster also was a parolee. He was sent to prison in 1996 after convictions on assault and weapon charges and originally released on parole in May 1998. He was returned to prison several times before being released on parole for the last time four months before he was killed, Department of Corrections records show.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card In addition to pleading no contest Thursday, Garcia admitted gang and gun allegations. The conviction marks a second strike for Garcia under California’s “three strikes, you’re out” law. Co-defendant Rafael Espinoza, 26, of Palmdale was sentenced in December to six years in prison after pleading no contest to assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, being an accessory after the fact for murder, and possession of a firearm as an aider and abettor. Espinoza drove Matheu and Garcia on Feb. 17, 2003, to a house in the 44700 block of Elm Avenue where Matheu’s girlfriend lived. Espinoza told investigators he assumed something was going to happen to Matheu’s girlfriend, whom Matheu had shot at a few days earlier. Instead, Morua, a neighbor, confronted Matheu and accused him of selling drugs to Morua’s girlfriend, prosecutors said. LANCASTER – A reputed Antelope Valley gang member has been sentenced to eight years in prison in the slaying of a Lancaster parolee shot to death after an argument at his downtown home. Richard Garcia III, 25, of Lancaster pleaded no contest – the equivalent of a guilty plea but one that can’t be used against him in civil court – to being an accessory after prosecutors agreed to drop a murder charge. Garcia was accused of participating in the killing of 26-year-old Arthur Raymond Morua of Lancaster, who prosecutors said was shot by friend and fellow gang member Byron Matheu, now a fugitive. “Garcia saw his friend getting beat up and came in to aid him. It was difficult to prove that he aided and abetted in a murder,” Deputy District Attorney Benny Osorio said. “It was difficult to prove that Garcia foresaw Matheu shooting in this situation. It was an intervening act.” last_img read more

Auto supplier’s bankruptcy filing shocks industry

Posted on by

first_imgDETROIT – Delphi Corp., the nation’s largest auto supplier, filed for bankruptcy Saturday, sending shock waves through a U.S. auto industry already weakened by high labor costs and falling market share. Delphi’s bankruptcy, which is expected to result in plant closures and layoffs, is one of the largest in U.S. history. The company has 50,000 U.S. employees. The company filed to reorganize its U.S. operations in federal bankruptcy court in New York, where a judge Saturday allowed Delphi to continue operating while more hearings were scheduled. Delphi’s non-U.S. operations were not included in the filing. Delphi Chairman and CEO Robert S. Miller said the company hopes to emerge from Chapter 11 in early to mid-2007. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “We will make every effort to make this as quick as possible,” Miller told The Associated Press on Saturday. Miller said Delphi will continue to pay its employees and suppliers and will ship its products on schedule, although the company’s former parent, General Motors Corp., said the filing could cause supply problems. “We are not going to adversely affect our customers,” Miller said. “Our people will get their paychecks and will still have their health benefits. Retirees will continue to get their checks. Any changes to that will be dealt with in an orderly way.” Miller, a restructuring expert who was hired in July, had threatened to take the company into bankruptcy if he failed to reach a restructuring agreement with GM and its largest union, the United Auto Workers. Miller set a deadline of Oct. 17, when U.S. bankruptcy laws are scheduled to change. Miller said Delphi will continue negotiating with GM and the UAW to lower its labor costs; wages for many Delphi workers are set by the company’s spinoff agreement with GM. Miller said the three parties agreed to continue their discussions after a bankruptcy filing. “We mutually concluded there was still too much of the complex work yet to be done,” Miller said. “It was not going to be efficient to work right up to the midnight deadline to the change in the law.” UAW officials blasted Delphi’s decision to file for bankruptcy one day after sweetening the severance packages of 21 top executives to help persuade them to stay at the company. “Once again, we see the disgusting spectacle of the people at the top taking care of themselves at the same time they are demanding extraordinary sacrifices from their hourly workers, engineers, administrative and support staff, midlevel managers and others,” union leaders said in a statement. Delphi said it made the change after determining its severance package for top executives was not competitive. John Butler Jr., a bankruptcy attorney for the company, said Delphi would attempt “some restructuring of its collective bargaining agreements” during the reorganization. Delphi’s contract with the UAW expires in October 2007. Delphi also intends to try to scale back pension benefits, Butler said during Saturday’s hearing. “The current level of retirement benefits is unsustainable and will eventually sink the company,” he said. Delphi has 31 plants in 13 states, including Michigan, Ohio, Alabama and California. The company has 185,000 employees worldwide. Jim Gillette, supplier analyst for CSM Worldwide in Grand Rapids, said he expects a number of underperforming plants to be shuttered or sold. He also said the bankruptcy could prompt other companies to file. “This is not going to be an isolated incident,” he said. “It’s really going to be a rough few weeks and a rough few months for the industry.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
