first_imgTwo brothers identified as Stephen Gborzoe and Emmanuel Gborzoe of Camphor United Methodist Mission Junction, in Tubmansville Township in Keekren Statutory District #5, in Grand Bassa County, have been formally charged with multiple crimes and detained by the Buchanan City Court for 60 days.  Alternatively, they are to pay a fine of US$50 each into Government Revenues in Buchanan.The multiple crimes included Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Coercion and Menacing.According to records of the court, presided over by the Associate Magistrate, Richard Browne, plaintiff Stephen Gborzoe claimed that on October 4, 2014, his younger brother Emmanuel Gborzoe and his wife Chinnie unlawfully attacked him publicly with insults and threatened to mob him with a pestle.The court records also said the defendants accused him of practicing witchcraft and that he (Stephen) took his wife’s under clothes and his (Emmanuel’s) photo for juju purposes to kill them. During the hearing of the case on October 14-15, 2014, the state was represented by the Buchanan City Solicitor and Acting County Attorney Isaac Yorcee and Associate City Solicitor Johnson Tukeh, while defendant Emmanuel Gborzoe chose to represent himself after the court acquainted him with his Miranda and constitutional rights.Testifying separately the state witnesses, Mary Gborzoe and Dehyeatee Gborzoe, (sister and mother of the two brothers, respectively), said that Stephen was in the constant habit of urinating in front of the three kitchens that they all use. Whenever they told him to stop, Stephen would in reply insult all of them saying, “That all of you do not love me and your witchcraft cannot do anything to kill me.”The state witnesses denied having any knowledge of the defendant calling Stephen a witch and threatening to mob him to death with a cutlass or stick as claimed by Stephen.Defendant Emmanuel Gborzoe, who testified on his own behalf, disclosed that upon his return from a nearby village, where he had gone for a brief visit, he met his wife and his older brother, Stephen in an altercation (quarrel), accusing and abusing each other.Defendant Emmanuel stated that all efforts to diffuse the conflict amicably proved fruitless with Stephen attempting to engage him in a fist fight and insulting him and his wife. “We did not resist his attempt to fight and abuse us,” he added.In his ruling, magistrate Richard Browne said that under the practices and procedures, the crime of disorderly conduct was clearly established and that the defendant and plaintiff wholly  admitted to the crime as both of them were aggressive.Magistrate Browne subsequently fined the two brothers $50USD each to be paid into Government Revenues in Buchanan and committed them to prison upon their deliberate failure to pay the fines.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_imgThe Central-1 Credit Union is reporting that next year, southern regions of the province could take the lead from those here in the north, when it comes to BC economic growth.Senior economist Bryan Yu confirms that lower interest rates and the devalued loonie are seen as underpinning the modest growth this year.However, he also has qualified the 2016 forecast, noting major construction projects will likely be the driving force of the economy for the following two years, and over the long term they might bring the north back into the picture.- Advertisement -“A lot of that is going to be driven in southern markets (such as the) Okanagan,” he says. “In terms of the relative shift, what we’re also seeing an an ongoing weakness in the Asian markets in China, which is really having a significant impact on the mining side of the economy, and also the oil side of the economy, and all the relationships we’re seeing there … Looking at the north as well though, I think we are still expecting to see some uplift, especially late 2016 into 2017. That’s when we are expecting to see more major construction starting to build up, and that should provide that lift.”He says forestry is also a potential growth sector for the north given the improvement in the US housing market, but it’s believed the long-term timber supply impact of the mountain pine beetle infestation is likely to constrain production and growth.Bryan sees the lower Canadian dollar as the key to this year’s healthy tourism season, fuelling cross border vacations by Americans, while at the same time leading BC residents to choose stay-at-home vacations.Advertisement He says anecdotal reports, particularly in the Okanagan, suggest there are areas where visitor accommodation is now quite scarce, but he adds, there’s no statistical proof.last_img read more


first_img Matt Jarvis Norwich have agreed a deal to sign winger Matt Jarvis from West Ham.The 29-year-old, who moved to Carrow Road on loan in September, will sign a three-and-a-half-year contract on January 2.The fee for Jarvis is undisclosed but is reported to be around £2.5million, meaning the Hammers have taken a big loss on a player they signed for a then club-record £10.75million in 2012.Jarvis has made seven appearances for the Canaries so far and scored two goals, including one on his debut in a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth.He told the club website: “I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far, so I’m delighted to sign on the dotted line.“It’s nice to get it done before the window opens as the club have shown they really wanted me. I had a great start here and hopefully I’ll be back up-and-running soon for the rest of the season.“My first game especially was great. To get out in front of the home fans and score in a win was a perfect start which carried on for a while.“Unfortunately I then picked up an injury but I’m desperate to get back fully-fit, and back playing. To get the deal sorted is really nice and I’m looking forward to helping the team as soon as I can.”City boss Alex Neil added: “Matt is a good competitor and a good team player.“He’ll give us pace on the other flank which I don’t think we’ve had. Only a few years ago he commanded a transfer fee of over £10million and as a player he has a lot to offer.” 1last_img read more

Island spokesman Jerry Early told Donegal Daily that those stranded wanted the information to be made public so they can verify with work that their genuinely stuck on Arranmore Island.Early said, “All ferry services have been cancelled due to the terrible weather, the short crossing is just not safe to partake in these conditions and the correct decision was made.“Unfortunately it has left over one hundred people stuck out here on the Island, and many had to get off the Island to get back for work tomorrow morning.“At this time of the year you wouldn’t imagine the weather being so bad, that such a decision would be made, but unfortunately it has and it has left people in a pickle. “The weather is to settle and calm during the night, and we’re hopeful those stranded will be able to leave the Island first thing in the morning.“For the time being they’re being sorted with accommodation for the night.That’s the Irish summer for you.  HUNDREDS STRANDED ON ARRANMORE ISLAND AS ALL FERRY SERVICES CANCELLED was last modified: August 18th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Arranmore IslandcancelledFerry ServicesnewsStrandedlast_img read more

first_imgThe Lucknow Metro has received the much-awaited clearance from the Commissioner Metro Railway Safety for starting its commercial run for public.CMRS Satish Kumar Pandey gave his certification to the Lucknow Metro after “inspecting the trial run of the train at the maximum operating speed of 80 kmph,” the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation, the agency responsible for its construction, announced on Monday evening.The inspection was carried out by Mr. Pandey along with senior LMRC officials by running the train from the Transport Nagar Metro station to Charbagh Metro station to and fro.“The trial run was completed successfully,” said Amit Kumar Srivastava, LMRC spokesperson.Kumar Keshav, Managing Director of LMRC, said: “Getting all the required technical clearances from the Ministry of Railway and finally certification from the Commissioner Metro Rail Safety today to commence revenue operations on the Priority Corridor of the Lucknow Metro Project from Transport Nagar to Charbagh has been a great achievement for all of us”.The Lucknow Metro would soon be open to public use “at any convenient date,” Mr. Keshav said.The CMRS had earlier inspected the Metro project thrice in July and once in August but wanted some additional tests of running the train at the maximum speed of 80 kmph, as per mandatory requirements.The work for the Lucknow Metro started in September 2014 and the trial run on its priority corridor was conducted on December 1, 2016. Amid much publicity by the previous Samajwadi Party government, the services were slated to start on March 26. The target, however, could not be met and even after the Yogi Adityanath government came the power the project kept getting delayed. After all all works on the priority section of the rail and required trials for safety measure were complete, and arrival of the required number of trains, the Lucknow Metro only required the clearance from the CMRS to start services.Metro services in Lucknow will start with the 8.5 km-long ‘priority corridor’ on the North-South line (Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport to Munshipulia), which is also Phase-1A of the project.The total distance of the North-South Corridor is 22. 878 km, consisting of 21 stations, including right elevated ones. The entire stretch of the Phase-1A of the Metro is expected to be completed by 2019.The second phase of the project is the East-West Corridor, stretching from the Charbagh Railway station to Vasantkunj, a distance of 11km. Though included in the Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the Metro, it is yet to get approval. There will be only 12 stations on this stretch.The estimated cost of the 22.878 km long Phase-1A of the project is ₹6,928 crore, a joint venture of the State and Central governments. The Lucknow Metro will also get a loan assistance of €450 million (₹3,502 cr) from European Investment Bank (EIB) for its Phase-1A project. The estimated expenditure for “Priority Corridor,” which is operational first, is ₹2,000 crore. Metro-man E. Seedharan is the principal advisor of the Lucknow Metro.According to the project DPR, daily expected ridership on the North-South corridor is 6.44 lakh (year 2020), while for the East-West line it is much less at 2.43 lakh, also estimated for the year 2020. The capacity of each six coach unit is 1574 passengers.The Lucknow Metro was last year adjudged the best Metro project for “Excellence in Innovative Designs” at the 5th Annual Metro Rail Summit in New Delhi. The exterior and interior of the train would prominently feature the rich culture of Lucknow, also known as the City of Nawabs. The front shape of train shows the spirit of the Roomi Gate, Bara-Imambara & Asifi Masjid, while the exterior livery in golden colour is inspired by the Chikankari craftsmanship.One of the highlights of the project would be the special balanced cantilever span of 255 meters, executed at a height of 21.5 meters above ground while passing over 12 railway tracks.last_img read more
