‘Sister Julia Mensah Was a Great Woman’

first_imgThe rector of the St. Thomas Episcopal Church, the Rev. Canon Dr. James B. Sellee, has described the late sister Julia B. Mensah as a great woman, who served God and loved her fellow human beings.Canon Sellee made the assertion during the funeral service of Sister Julia B. Mensah, held last Saturday at the St. Thomas Episcopal Church on Camp Johnson Road, Monrovia.Canon Sellee explained that Jesus says to be great is to be a servant, not a master. “Sister Julia Mensah was great because she served her people and her church,” he declared. The canon recalled that Sister Julia sang in the church choir and served in the Usher Guild.  These are services that are strenuous and cannot be paid for, he noted. “The ushers serve at the door to the church, and the way they treat people determines whether or not they will come back to  the church. Sister Julia served faithfully in that area,” he stated.  “I remember, shortly after Christmas day last year, she took US$50.00 and gave it to me and I refused the money. Then she said to me, ‘You want to stop my blessing, Father?’” So I accepted it with gratitude. Yet, he said, “There are some of us who are very stingy even to our children, wives and family members.”Rev. Sellee explained that some people only believe in spending their money or services, including time, with other people and not with their children and family members, describing this as sad in the sight of God. The church, he declared, needs people like Sister Julia Mensah, who had the passion to serve the Lord, her church and people with everything she had.Rev. Sellee warned the congregation to stop engaging in things that would separate them from God. Serving God in His church and among His people was the best way to worship the Lord, he added.In his acknowledgements, Mr. Benoni Urey, cousin of the deceased, said their family had been troubled over the past three years with the deaths of many family members.Mr. Urey described Sister Mensah as an exceptional person who showed the family, her friends and others love and care.She was a real sister, not just a cousin, said Benoni, as he thanked God for sending her to their family, to the St. Thomas Episcopal Church family and to the world. Mr. Urey further expressed appreciation to all family members, friends and sympathizers who attended the funeral; as well as those who visited and comforted  Sister Julia during her illness.She is survived by three children, Reuben Mensah, Jr., Amerley Mensah and Amokor Mensah; brothers and sisters, Mrs. Dorothy Johnson Hopkins, Clemenceau B. Urey, Sr., Mrs. Annabel Urey Tingba, Henry Nea Urey, James Tiada Urey, Mrs. Felicia Urey Gaye; and many other relatives and friends.Following the funeral service, the cortege departed for Careysburg, where interment took place in the Woodson Family Cemetery.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

I Have Been Petitioned Twice, But…

first_imgThe Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of Coca Cola International, Mr. Alexander Cummings, has disclosed that Liberians, both at home and in the Diaspora, have petitioned him to run for the office of President of Liberia.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer at its new headquarters in Paynesville, Mr. Cummings said he had received the petitions, but insisted that as vice head of a premier multilateral corporation, he could not seek political office now.Mr. Cummings did not, however, rule out the possibility that he may in the near future give consideration to those petitions.Should he decide to run for any political office, Mr. Cummings said he would have to resign, “but for now I am still an employee of Coca Cola.”In recent months, both at home and abroad, the name of Mr. Cummings continues to come up as one of those expected to make the line up for the 2017 political marathon to Capitol Hill.A 1973 graduate of the College of West Africa (CWA), Mr. Cummings did one and half semesters at Cuttington University College, (now Cuttington University) before leaving for further studies in the United States.After successfully completing his studies, Cummings started work for corporate America, becoming a Senior Financial Officer at Pillsbury, a flour manufacturer in Minnesota, and slowly climbed the corporate ladder, becoming vice president for Finance. He later joined Coca Cola International in Atlanta, Georgia, where he rose to the post of Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of Coca Cola International. Many political commentators both in the Executive and Legislative Branches of government have hinted to our Legislative Reporter that Mr. Cummings who has now reached his zenith in the international corporate business world, may likely be a candidate for the Executive Mansion.Mr. Cummings was in Liberia last August during the height of the Ebola virus epidemic to assure President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and the Liberian government that despite the crisis, Coca Cola International had decided to maintain its current staff, and even continued expanding its operations. True to that pledge, he returned home this week to open a new bottling facility at the Coca Cola plant in Paynesville.In addition, he also led President Sirleaf to Duport Road to open a new Science and Technical School he has founded which will teach students starting from seventh grade in Computer Technology and Science. The school intends to attract the best and brightest students, purely on the basis of meritocracy.

Judge’s ouster may imperil lawsuit

first_img“This isn’t going to change anything on how the petitioners and the parties before the court are going to do things,” he said. “It’s going to wreak havoc on the administration of these cases. “A new judge would have to be very familiar with her whole docket. Not knowing how long she’s going to stay on the bench, we don’t know how many cases will be turned over to a new judge.” Newhall Land spokeswoman Marlee Lauffer agreed Janavs is an experienced jurist, but said her absence won’t affect the company’s legal responses. “You never know what courtroom you’ll be in,” she said. “We would prefer not to be in any courtroom, but if a lawsuit occurs, and it seems to be standard operating procedures for the anti-growth environmental groups, we want to make sure that the document is strong, whether it’s this judge or any other judge.” Janavs’ rulings have favored local developers and their supporters, though parts have been overturned on appeal. Last year, Janavs found no problems with an environmental impact report prepared for the Needham Ranch industrial park in Newhall. Groups including SCOPE had sued, alleging the city of Santa Clarita violated its own environmental ordinances when it approved the EIR. But the state’s 2nd District Court of Appeal overturned part of the decision, citing a section documenting water supply as inadequate. Naficy, who argued the River Village case before Janavs last month, had said the judge seemed more receptive of their water-supply arguments since the reversal. Environmental groups have claimed there is inadequate water in the Santa Clarita Valley to support new development, a lack builders and local water agencies dismissed. “I’ve often, on behalf of my clients, disagreed with the way Judge Janavs has ruled,” he said. “But she’s still a judge who has a lot of integrity. It (the vote) seems really random. … I really doubt the people who voted really had any idea of her judicial temperament and philosophy.” In a 2004 case against the city filed by developer Palmer Investments, which has proposed a 5,800-home community in the Newhall Pass, Janavs ordered the city to provide a detailed environmental study before annexing that property – an attempt by Santa Clarita leaders to kill the project. Janavs threw out a 2003 lawsuit brought by two environmental groups – SCOPE and the Center for Biological Diversity – that claimed plans for four new car dealerships on Valencia Boulevard at Cinema Drive would destroy a waterway’s sensitive habitat. “I’ve never felt she was unfair,” Plambeck said. “I felt that she was rushed. And these are such hard issues to understand, and the hype the other side puts out – that we’re suing to stop growth – people don’t understand what we’re trying to do with the water supply.” Another notable Janavs decision in July 2005 found that area town councils – local elected advisory panels answering to 5th District county Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich – are bounded by state open meeting laws. The ruling in the case against the Agua Dulce Town Council forced them to keep electronic recordings of the meetings, and led four council members to resign.

Incoming Superior Court presiding Judge C. Stephen Czuleger could assign a new judge to take over her docket, though the state Judicial Council also could appoint Janavs to the bench again. At least one local case – litigation by environmental groups, including the Sierra Club, challenging The Newhall Land and Farming Company’s 1,089-home River Village subdivision in Saugus – awaits Janavs’ ruling. She also was assigned a lawsuit brought by the California Water Impact Network and others against the Castaic Lake Water Agency’s 1998 transfer of 41,000 acre-feet of state water from Kern County. “She’s a known quantity, and to the extent that she’s already done some work on the 41,000 acre-feet – hopefully, she’ll stay on it,” said Dan Masnada, CLWA’s general manager. “We want to see it resolved. Success is dependent on having a good judge. Frankly, I don’t think either side would like (if the court change judges midstream).” Babak Naficy, who has argued environmental cases for clients including the Water Impact Network before Janavs over the past five years, foresees trouble if she’s replaced. SANTA CLARITA – The surprise ouster of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dzintra Janavs at polls Tuesday shocked both local environmentalists and developers who have waged battles before her over the years. The 20-year veteran is the assistant presiding judge in the Writs and Receivers Court, and is usually the first to hear cases from activists seeking injunctions against a particular development or state environmental law challenges. “I actually voted for her because I didn’t want her to go away amid all these cases,” said Lynne Plambeck of the Santa Clarita Organization for Planning the Environment. “She was starting to understand and ask questions that we were asking.” Janavs finished 8 percentage points behind challenger Lynn Olson, a Hermosa Beach resident who practiced commercial law for four years before opening a bagel shop in 1992. last_img read more

first_imgÚdarás na Gaeltachta today announced that it is to support the creation of 300 new jobs on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park over the next 3 years.It also stated that 80 new jobs have been approved recently for the Business Park and will be coming on-stream in the near future.The agency is to invest a total of €4.7 million over the next 3 years on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park to support further enterprise development, employment creation, and carry out a capital redevelopment programme on a number of its properties. An action plan, presented in the Enterprise Development on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park report, launched today, sets out a programme that aims to attract employment creation opportunities to the Business Park.The Report was produced by the Fóram Forbartha Fiontraíochta, an interagency working group, set up by Údarás na Gaeltachta as an immediate response to the announcement by Largo Foods in March 2014 that it was to cease manufacturing in Gaoth Dobhair and transfer all its operations to its manufacturing facility in Ashbourne, Co Meath, resulting in the loss of 146 jobs.The purpose of the Fóram was to propose solutions and make recommendations that would lead to new enterprise development and job creation opportunities on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park.Údarás na Gaeltachta’s CEO, Steve Ó Cúláin, said that the report highlighted a number of challenges for enterprise development in the area and added that Údarás was confident that the level of employment on the Business Park would grow over the next few years. Steve Ó Cúláin said, “We welcome the Fóram’s report and the analysis, findings and recommendations contained within. An tÚdarás will prioritise its resources and put in place a programme aimed at attracting new enterprises to locate on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park. We are also pleased to announce that, during the term of the Fóram’s work, five new projects have been approved for the Business Park. These enterprise projects will lead to the creation of 80 new jobs, some of which are already in place and the remainder are planned to come on stream over the next 2 years. We are encouraged that three new start-up businesses are locating on the Business Park, and that further development is planned by two companies already located there, Euroflex Teo and Fáisc Miotail.”Séamas Mac Eochaidh, Chairperson of the Fóram and Enterprise and Employment Manager with Údarás na Gaeltachta, thanked all the members of the Fóram for their input. He said that the report, “highlights a number of sectors that should be targeted as most appropriate for sustainable job creation enterprises in Gaoth Dobhair, when all factors such as fit-for-purpose and sector-targeted enterprise facilities, location, infrastructure, labour supply is taken into consideration.”He said that one of the main sectors that Údarás na Gaeltachta was presently targeting was the food-sector, due to the availability of a high-grade food production facility on the Business Park and the level of skilled people with experience in this sector living locally. He gave the example of two of the new start-up enterprises, Bia Beo Natasha Teo and Kombucha Éireannach Teo, both operating in the food sector. These companies will be located in the building previously occupied by Largo Foods as their development plans are implemented. He stressed the importance of the companies currently operating on the Business Park, the employment they provide and the need to continuously support their operations and any further expansion plans they may have.The report has been welcomed by Minister of State, Deputy Joe McHugh.PLANS TO CREATE 300 JOBS IN WEST DONEGAL ANNOUNCED was last modified: March 27th, 2015 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)last_img read more
