Marketers Taking over Broad, Randall Streets

first_imgLocal marketers selling food items such as dried and fresh fish, palm oil, and fresh pepper have begun to take over Broad Street. The marketers, who line up their businesses stretching from Broad and Gurley streets intersection to Broad and Mechlin streets intersection every evening, say they are selling in the area to generate money to feed themselves for the July 26 Independence celebration. They also told our reporters that they are bringing their businesses on the main Broad Street because more customers and potential buyers troop the street. But pedestrians who commute the affected areas say the street sellers are posing serious sanitation challenge to the area. They want the Liberia National Police (LNP) to take action to remove the marketers from the sidewalks as they (pedestrians) can no longer walk freely in the area. Our reporters, who visited the Broad and Randall Streets intersection yesterday, confirmed the marketers were selling dry rice, dry fish and pepper dust and palm oil on the sidewalks. The marketers prevented reporters from taking their photos. Crowds of market women and Yana boys told our reporters that they do not want their photos in the press. Some angry pedestrians have vowed to take the issue with the LNP as the marketers are adamant to go back to the marketplace down Water Street. Broad Street is the major economic center in Monrovia for mainly white collar government and private workers. The part of Broad Street being occupied by the sellers is mainly the Executive Pavilion area which is considered by many as the heart of Monrovia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

JFK Absolved of Blame in Death of Forh’s Daughter

first_imgFamily members of the late Nakita Forh, daughter of Representative Edward Forh, yesterday wept bitterly in the Civil Law Court in Monrovia after a six member jury announced that the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFKMC) was not responsible for her death.Rep. Forh sought US$25 million as damages for the death of his daughter, which he claimed was the result of negligence on the part of medical doctors assigned at the hospital.Nakita, who suffered from asthma, died on September 27, 2014, on the grounds of the hospital while gasping for air because she was denied the use of the hospital’s nebulizer during the height of the Ebola crisis in the country. For their failure to provide his daughter medical care when she sought treatment at the JFK hospital, Rep. Forh was claiming US$25 million in damages for her death.After several hours of closed door deliberations in the Chamber of Judge Yussif Kaba, the jury came down with a unanimous non-liable (not guilty) verdict in favor of 11 health practitioners who Rep. Forh accused of being responsible for his daughter’s death.After the jury’s decision, lawyers representing the lawmaker announced an appeal against the verdict to the Supreme Court.The Forh family declined to speak with journalists who for the past months had converged at the court to follow the trial that is considered the first of its kind in the country. The case was interesting because it was the first time in this country for a sitting lawmaker to file a lawsuit against a hospital claiming damages for the death of his daughter, one of those in the queue remarked.Rep. Forth accused Dr. Wvannie-Mae Scott-McDonald, JFK General Administrator; Munah Tarpeh, Deputy for Administration; Tannie Sneh, Nursing Supervisor; Mary Howard Nyaquie, Administrator; Dr. Korto Dorbor; Dr. Billy C. Johnson, Chief Medical Officer; Dr. David Okiror, Staff Physician; Professor Joseph Njoh, Department Chairman on Internal Medicine and the Administrator of the Ministry of Health, of his daughter’s death.The lawsuit against the healthcare givers, according to Counselor Arthur Johnson, lead lawyer for the Forh family, was based on what he described as a “very devastating and frustrating experience,” which he claims, caused the family significant damages and an unforgettable state of trauma for their daughter’s death.Cllr. Johnson argued that Nakita died in the arms of her father on the grounds of the hospital while struggling and crying for help.For that reason, Rep. Forh was seeking not less than US$10 million in general damages; US$5 million in punitive damages; another US$5 million in compensatory damages; and US$5 million in substantial damages.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Another Sterling moment

first_imgDunleavy and Maggette can’t coexist. We know this. They tried to put on happy faces for a while, but it came to a head again last week when Maggette publicly lashed out about his lack of playing time. This, remember, came less than a month after Sterling, Baylor, Dunleavy and Maggette came together in the Staples Center tunnel, sang “Kumbaya” and decided they would try to be a happy family. Well, that lasted a while, didn’t it? It’s now nothing short of a clown show, and the men wearing the suits should have known better. Who’s running this team, anyway? Dunleavy wants to trade Maggette, Sterling wants to keep him and Baylor, well, who knows? He seems to be in the middle, trying to placate both sides. The lion’s share of the blame here falls on Sterling. His involvement in the whole thing has turned the Maggette affair from a sticky situation to a tar pit. Because who isn’t going to listen to the boss? Sterling is making himself look like L.A.’s version of George Steinbrenner, minus the mean streak. Donald, if Maggette is more important to you than Dunleavy, fire Dunleavy. If Baylor isn’t doing the job you want, fire Baylor. But trying to play all sides and have this magically work out, it just isn’t going to happen. You’d think that a man with Sterling’s business background would understand management. With the trade deadline approaching, Sterling needs to ask himself one question: What’s more important, his admiration for Maggette or his team’s chances of making the playoffs? Dunleavy’s feelings aren’t going to change. He doesn’t like Maggette’s defense or attitude, and the road-trip outburst just sealed the deal. Now it’s time to take the handcuffs off Baylor, let him do his job and make a respectable trade, one that will allow the team to focus on something other than internal strife. This could have been the Clippers’ season. Instead, it’s a mess, but maybe it’s not too late to fix. Don’t do it: As the Feb.22 trade deadline approaches, the hottest non-Maggette trade stories center around Memphis’ Pau Gasol, with Chicago as a possible trade partner for the Grizzlies. Sounds good for the Bulls, except the latest rumors have the Grizzlies seeking two players from a group that includes Luol Deng, Andres Nocioni, Ben Gordon and Kirk Hinrich. Thanks, but no thanks. Nocioni is 27 and the other three are 25 or younger. That quartet forms the core of a group that has kept the Bulls competitive in the ultra-tough Central Division and should keep them strong for years to come. A versatile 7-foot center such as Gasol is nothing to sneeze at, but the Bulls can’t afford to lose two of their top four scorers. One player and a draft pick? Sure, and if that happens, watch out for the Bulls. Numbers game: Is there something about The Palace of Auburn Hills that makes NBA players lose their minds? First the Indiana Pacers go charging into the seats and now, the Brian Cook incident. Cook, bothered by a lack of recent playing time, dropped his warmups into Lakers coach Phil Jackson’s lap as he left the bench and, well, there’s really no good way to spin this one in Cook’s favor. But does Cook have a point? Let’s look at some numbers provided by the stat gurus at 82games.com. Using a simple formula known as “net points,” which measures a team’s point totals when a particular player is on or off the court, Cook is the Lakers’ fifth-most efficient player with a plus-17 rating. That puts Cook behind Kobe Bryant (plus-175), Kwame Brown (plus-93), Lamar Odom (plus-63) and Maurice Evans (plus-51) and far ahead of Smush Parker (minus-35) and Andrew Bynum (minus-75). And Vladimir Radmanovic, who competes with Cook for playing time? He’s a minus-275. Ouch. Baby Shaq? The NBA slam-dunk contest, which stopped being interesting after Spud Webb threw down, could get an infusion of life if Orlando’s Dwight Howard pulls off what he’s thinking. Howard told the Orlando Sentinel last week he’s considering a dunk so thunderous that it would bring down the basket support, something Shaquille O’Neal made famous a few years back. “That’s what I have people telling me: tear it down!” Howard said. “But you know how hard that is to do? I know Shaq has done it. I don’t know. It’s never been done (in the slam-dunk contest).” Take that: Dwyane Wade is known as being perhaps the most mild-mannered of all the NBA stars, but Wade couldn’t resist taking a jab at Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki, who, in the estimation of Miami followers, hasn’t given enough credit to the Heat for its NBA Finals win over the Mavericks. “At the end of the day,” Wade told the Miami Herald, “you’re remembered for what you did at the end. … Dirk says they gave us the championship last year, but he’s the reason they lost the championship, because he wasn’t the leader that he’s supposed to be in the closing moments.” For those interested in calendar-circling, Dallas hosts Miami on Feb. 22. rich.hammond@dailynews.com (818) 713-3611 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! But they won’t, at this rate, because this team is closer to a total collapse than it is a turnaround. That’s not Chris Kaman’s fault, even though he has been a $52 million stiff, and it’s not Shaun Livingston’s fault for being too young or Elton Brand’s fault for perhaps being tired after a long summer of basketball. The blame for the Clippers’ struggles, especially of late, falls at the top, with owner Donald Sterling, with general manager Elgin Baylor and with coach Mike Dunleavy, for their inability to get their act together. This team is falling apart because it can’t figure out what to do with its sixth man, Corey Maggette. Think about it. The Clippers have Brand, one of the best post men in the game, and Sam Cassell, perhaps the smartest point guard, leading a deep and talented lineup, and they’re imploding over their sixth man? To be fair, the NBA coroner hasn’t arrived. In fact, the Clippers would be in the playoffs if the season ended today and yes, if the Clippers make the postseason they could go on some miracu- lous run. center_img Well, Clippers, it was fun while it lasted. We’ll always remember the good times. The exciting playoff run last spring and the … OK, well, that’s pretty much it, so the Clippers better be prepared to show those highlights for the next decade. last_img read more

first_img Aymeric Laporte in action for Athletic Bilbao 1 Manchester United and Arsenal target Aymeric Laporte has played down the chances of him leaving Athletic Bilbao this summer.Both Premier League sides have a long-running interest in the defender and both are lacking in his centre-back position.The rising French star has started and completed 21 La Liga matches so far this season, helping his side up to 13th.And in Bilbao’s last seven matches they have conceded just seven goals – not a bad stat when you take into account that includes their 5-2 defeat against Barcelona’s stunning frontline.When asked by AS about the speculation linking him to a Premier League move, Laporte said: “Here there are many people of experience and I’m learning a lot from them.“I have played a lot of games and I want to continue to do what I’m doing.”last_img read more

Check out these local haunts to scare up some fun

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The holiday for centuries has had ghostly implications, with the night being prime time for wandering spirits to make themselves known. While some fear those spirits, others seem to get a kick out of scaring themselves with the possibilities. “There’s a thrill to going to a haunted house – late at night, while the clouds drift by the low-hanging moon and a dog howls forlornly in the distance,” Tangherlini said. “You go there because you’re being transgressive; you’re breaking the rules … And, of course, the ghosts are breaking the rules, too. They’re supposed to be dead, and yet here they are above the ground.” An Associated Press-Ipsos poll released last week found that 34percent of respondents said believe in ghosts. A smaller but still substantial 23percent say they have actually seen a ghost or believe they have been in one’s presence. Are ghosts real? Are they something to be feared? Here are some places where they’ve been reported. Check them out, then decide for yourself. HOLLYWOOD FOREVER CEMETERYWhere better to find ghosts than a graveyard? Hollywood Forever is the final resting place for stars such as Rudolph Valentino, Mel Blanc, Tyrone Power, Marion Davies, Douglas Fairbanks, director Cecil B. DeMille, murdered gangster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and many more celebrities. In 1926, when Valentino – a smoldering silent-screen star – died of peritonitis from a ruptured appendix, an estimated 80,000 weeping, screaming fans jammed the cemetery. Every year thereafter, a woman who came to be called simply The Lady in Black arrived on the anniversary of Valentino’s death to leave two red roses. There were a succession of Ladies in Black, from the daughter of a friend of Valentino’s to a woman who claimed the star was her mother’s unrequited love to actresses who sought publicity. The Glendale & Burbank Paranormal Group maintains the original Lady in Black still visits – a nighttime specter who emerges seemingly from thin air in the dark of night, visits Valentino’s crypt in the East Mausoleum, leaves two red roses, then disappears. “She is never disturbed and walks into the mausoleum at night, every night,” the paranormal group insists on its Web site, paranormal.meetup.com. The group also believes the cemetery’s ghosts include Virginia Rappe, who died of a burst bladder and peritonitis in 1921. Movie comedian Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle was charged with sexually assaulting her, but was acquitted after three trials. Yoga Kantah, chief financial officer for the cemetery, claims there’s nothing supernatural going on. “It’s not haunted,” he insisted, “We never had any ghosts here. The Lady in Black is real. She comes on her own.” Movies are shown weekly during the summer in the darkened cemetery, ending around midnight, and no specters have been reported by viewers, Kantah said. “I work late at night a lot and I’ve never had any bad experience.” Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd.; (323) 469-1181; www.hollywoodforever.com. LEONIS ADOBE MUSEUMThe first time Diane Ramadan visited Leonis Adobe, she smelled the aroma of flowery perfume near the top of the stairs. She asked her companion what kind of scent she was using, but was told she wasn’t wearing any at all. That was her first contact with Espiritu Leonis, the wife of Miguel Leonis, a respected but ruthless landowner known to neighbors and business associates as El Basquo Grande or The Big Basque. Espiritu, the daughter of a San Fernando Mission Indian, was a widow with a young son when she rented her land to Leonis – the black-sheep son of a rich Spanish family. Miguel Leonis died in 1889 after a fall from a wagon in the Cahuenga Pass, and Espiritu died in 1906. Ramadan said the couple’s spirits still inhabit their two-story adobe. “I was in there two weeks ago and somebody was walking around upstairs,” said Ramadan, who manages the ranch. “But there was nobody upstairs. Maybe it was Miguel Leonis’ footsteps. Some people claim he’s still here. It doesn’t bother any of us, though. It doesn’t seem to be a scary ghost.” In fact, it may have been the ghost of Miguel that saved a volunteer who leaned over a balcony railing and nearly fell as it broke under her weight. “Strong hands pulled her backwards,” Ramadan said. “She always thought it was Miguel Leonis.” There have been seances in the house, and mediums have unfailingly reported that the main haunt is Espiritu Leonis, who died in her upstairs bedroom. Others have claimed to see a woman in a black dress looking out a second-story window. “It’s her house and she wants to make sure it’s taken care of,” Ramadan said. “We know when she’s around. There’s a smell … like jasmine or roses when things are good or she likes you … There’ll be foul smells when she doesn’t.” There are also frequent reports of a mysterious light at the top of the stairs. And visiting schoolchildren have claimed to see a large man, dressed in black and often wearing bandages, lying in bed in the room where Miguel Leonis slept. “He’s never done anything specific to make people afraid,” Ramadan said. “There’s no malevolence involved, just the presence.” Leonis Adobe Museum, 223537 Calabasas Road, Calabasas; 818-222-6511; leonisadobemuseum.org. DRUM BARRACKS CIVIL WAR MUSEUMMuseum Director Susan Ogle has never seen a ghost at what was once the westernmost outpost for Union soldiers, but she knows they’re there. “I’m not seeing them, I’m hearing them,” she said. And, most maddening of all, she smells them – the odor of cigar and pipe smoke often permeates the wooden building when she opens in the morning, striking fear in her heart because of the danger of fire. “I think they do that to drive me crazy,” she said jokingly. “And it does.” Museum workers and volunteers are not the only ones to encounter the ghosts. “Many of our neighbors say that they hear wagons and horses during the nights, coming up and down the streets.” From 1861-71, Camp Drum housed about 7,000 Union soldiers whose job it was to keep the Confederates from moving west from Texas to seize the port at Wilmington. After the war, the camp’s hospital cared for thousands of soldiers and others before it closed. The complex was later used as a high school and then as a rooming house before it was targeted for demolition. Community groups saved the former junior officers’ quarters, which became a museum in 1987, but about 20 others buildings were destroyed. Some of the museum’s ghosts, Ogle believes, may be linked to the presence of an original Gatling gun – the first “machine gun” – used by the Union Army. The gun was donated to Wilmington Cemetery as a monument to Civil War soldiers, but it was stolen in the 1960s. It was found in a nearby dump in 1987 and its authenticity was verified. Drum Barracks Civil War Museum, 1052 Banning Blvd., Wilmington; (310) 548-7509; www.drumbarracks.org. QUEEN MARYThere are said to be more ghosts aboard the Queen Mary, which ferried millions of passengers across the Atlantic during her oceangoing years, than any other Southern California site. There were at least 49 documented deaths aboard the ship, not counting an unknown number of wounded soldiers who died during World War II, while the Queen was transformed into a troop ship dubbed the “Grey Ghost” because of its gray camouflage paint. There have been hundreds, if not thousands, of reports of lights turning on and off, doors opening and closing, items being moved, disembodied figures gliding up and down corridors. “I think the thing that is extraordinary about the Queen Mary is there’s such a concentration of spirits,” said Lovetta Kramer, vice president of marketing and communications for the Queen. For years, there have been reports of a ghostly woman in white in the Queen’s Salon; unseen, giggling children in a forward storage room; glimpses of two women in 1930s-era bathing suits, with the sounds of splashing water and wet footprints on the tile near the tourist-class swimming pool, which has been drained for years. A man and a woman in vintage clothing are seen wandering the corridors, only to disappear abruptly when approached. Even smoke from Winston Churchill’s cigar is sometimes smelled onboard; the British prime minister secretly used the ship as a seagoing headquarters during the war. The largest and most tragic loss of life came on Oct. 2, 1942, when the Queen, sailing in a mandatory wartime zigzag pattern to elude Nazi ships, collided with her escort, the British cruiser HMS Curacao. That ship went down, killing 338 British soldiers and sailors. Many ghost-hunters have left sound equipment in the ship’s bow and recorded pounding noises and sounds of men yelling for help. The Queen, which sailed on her maiden voyage in 1936, was retired from service and purchased by Long Beach in 1967. It opened in 1970 as a seagoing museum and a hotel. But Room B340 – reportedly haunted by a murdered purser – remains closed to occupancy because it’s full of disturbances: Lights and water faucets turn on and off by themselves. Knock on the door, some say, and the door knocks back. Still, the spirits seem benign. “They seem to be just aboard ship, as they were (before their death),” Kramer said, “and they’re just carrying on.” Queen Mary, 1126 Queens Highway, Long Beach; 562-435-3511; www.queenmary.com. STRATHEARN HISTORICAL PARKVisit the original St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Simi Valley and you just might see the specter of an elderly Latina, wearing a black lace mantilla, carrying a rosary, weeping near the back of the church, where the baptismal font used to be. Or you might get a glimpse of a man reportedly murdered there many years ago, come back to find his killer. That is, if you believe myriad of Web sites that list the old church among the haunts of Southern California. On the other hand, “I’ve never heard a peep,” said Colleen Janssen, marketing and outreach specialist for the Simi Valley Recreation and Park District, which has included the 1902 church as part of a historical village at Strathearn Park, in the 100 block of Strathearn Place. The Web site theshadowlands.net/places/california2.htm insists that the woman is often seen at night in the now-empty sanctuary and that the scent of her perfume often wafts through the building. People have also reported seeing “a tall stranger” out of the corner of their eye. Whenever either is approached, they vanish, theshadowlands says. Originally located at Pacific and Second streets, the church was moved to its current site in 2002 and is now used for weddings and other social gatherings. “I would think if it moved, whatever (ghost) might have been in the building would have stayed at the original site,” Jensen said. “There are two homes there now.” Strathearn Historical Park, 137 Strathearn Place, Simi Valley; 805-526-6453; www.simihistory.com.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Many years later, the Catholic Church – which honors the departed by celebrating All Souls’ Day on Nov. 2 – sought to do away with the pagan beliefs in favor of Christianity. “The Reformation could not eradicate long-held local beliefs in wandering spirits of the dead,” UCLA professor of folklore Timothy Tangherlini said in an interview. “So they (church officials) did what anybody does when they need to align two seemingly incompatible beliefs: They made a compromise, saying that ghosts were essentially in league with the devil and, through the equation `ghosts equal satan,’ they could then accommodate widespread belief in ghosts.” That led to recognition of Hallow E’en, as it’s called in Ireland, meaning All Hallows Eve, or the night before All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1. last_img

Suspect eludes barricade

first_imgWEST WHITTIER – Dozens of officers with an armored vehicle, bullet-proof helmets and shields surrounded a locked gas station bathroom Thursday where they believed an armed-robbery suspect was barricaded. For two hours, three law enforcement agencies – the Whittier Police Department, the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station and California Highway Patrol – called officers to the scene and planned their movements before opening the bathroom door. Traffic backed up on nearby streets as deputies rerouted traffic away from the police perimeter. Officers believed a man suspected of armed robbery was barricaded inside the bathroom at the Arco am/pm Mini Mart gas station on the corner of Pioneer Boulevard and Slauson Avenue. After a two-hour operation, officers opened the bathroom door and the room was empty. sandy.mazza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

At 4:39 p.m., a sheriff’s deputy spotted a “suspicious subject” in the parking lot of the Arco gas station, said Hentcy.
