Our Farmers, Others Suffering: No Good Roads to Get to Gbarnga, Monrovia Markets

first_imgDoes anyone remember the day in 1983 when Head of State Samuel Doe and Justice Minister Jenkins Scott shut down the Daily Observer newspaper over our front page caption story, “Bad, Bad Roads”?Yes, some people do, but the vast majority of our people were either in childhood or yet unborn.It was Sando Moore’s Candid Camera that spotted far into Lofa County, on the road to Kolahun, two huge trucks stuck on both sides of the road in deep, impassible mud. One was filled with produce bound for the Bong and Monrovia markets. The other was empty, bound for Kolahun and Foya, two of Lofa’s breadbaskets, to pick up produce for Gbarnga and Monrovia.Doe got angry, insisting that the caption story was meant only to make the government look bad! So he ordered his spineless and sycophantic Justice Minister Jenkins Scott to shut down the newspaper.Today we ask, how long will it take for the Daily Observer to write the headline, “Bad, Bad Roads” before something is done to fix our highways? Or must we face another closure? And how many such closures will it take before something tangible is done to fix Liberia’s roads once and for all? Our Bong Correspondent Marcus Malayea departed his studies at Cuttington last week to travel on part of the Bong-Lofa highway to confirm what the few travelers who managed to reach Gbarnga from Lofa had once again been crying about: “Bad, bad roads!”On last Tuesday our Nimba Correspondent Ishmael Menkor reported about ‘bad, bad roads’ imperiling travelers and goods, mostly farm produce, that were stuck in the crippling mud on the Ganta-Tappita highway. This led us to write another Editorial appealing to Public Works Minister Gyude Moore and Defense Minister Brownie Samukai to do something quick to rescue our stranded, frustrated travelers and their highly perishable produce and other commodities.Here we are today, again, in a decades old cry to Public Works! We are again appealing to this critical Ministry to rescue our hapless people, imperiled by ‘bad, bad, bad roads’ that hamper their travel and spoil their produce. Within a week following our closure in 1983 following our ‘Bad Road’ story, then Public Works Minister William Amara Freeman convened a press conference and confessed that indeed the roads throughout the country were in deplorable condition. This, he lamented, was due primarily to the lack of funding available to Public Works to do anything about the situation. Yet the Daily Observer remained closed for another month, until Doe felt moved to reopen the newspaper.Here we are once again today, 33 years later in the exact same situation, bringing to the attention of Public Works the selfsame perennial plight, the seemingly incessant cry, “Bad, Bad Roads.”Minister Moore of Public Works has yet another war on his hands, beyond the Ganta-Tappita and River Cess-Sinoe-Grand Kru highway. This time, it is the Gbarnga-Voinjama-Kolahun-Vahun highway.As mentioned in our Editorial last week, help is within Public Works Minister Moore’s reach: The Engineering Battalion of the Armed Forces of Liberia. If the Engineering Battalion, as may be the case with Public Works, is also crying for money, then the palava reaches President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and her Finance Minister, Boima Kamara. Can they cough up some money from somewhere and empower these two agencies to help fix our mud-plagued highways?As a follow-up to this age-old plea about our roads that we face every Rainy Season, we ask this crucial question: when will Liberia develop the political will and resources to initiate a railroad system to make transport easier throughout the country—from Vahun through Foya through Kolahun, Voinjama to Gbarnga to Monrovia; and from Monrovia to Harper, Cape Palmas?In 2006, at the onset of the Ellen Administration, there was talk of a Beach Highway from Cape Mount to Cape Palmas. That was a wonderful idea which the Chinese said they could help us to achieve. We hope and pray that it is not yet another great Liberian idea that, like so many others, died after its originators became overwhelmed with the trappings of power and bureaucracy and forgot about implementing it.

‘Journalism A Key Tool for Consolidating Democracy’

first_imgDr. Ruby E. M. Randall, Resident Representative, the International Monetary Fund – The GambiaOfficials Implore West African economic journalistsBy Joaquin M. Sendolo in Banjul, The GambiaAlthough other Social Science courses that teach Politics are available for learning, two top officials including Ruby E. M. Randall, Resident Representative of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Mambury Njie, Minister of Finance of The Gambia have both described the Journalism profession as an indispensable tool for consolidating modern democracy and transforming society.The two made the cohesive statement  on February 20, 2019 in Banjul at the opening of a three-day seminar organized by the IMF for journalists of Anglophone countries of West Africa.Dr. Randall, who gave the opening statement and welcomed the journalists, emphasized that the media’s role in driving the development agenda of any nation cannot be overemphasized and that, because the IMF is aware of this, it attaches serious importance to developing the capacity of journalists, specifically those reporting financial issues to report with fairness and objectivity.She identified three roles she said are cardinal responsibilities of a journalist, namely: gatekeeper, score keeper, and watchdog.“The task is peculiar that it must not be taken lightly, and this is why we have called you together here in Banjul and invited our knowledgeable partners from the Thompson Reuters Foundation to share with you their experience,” she added.She indicated that reporting financial issues is not only about budget or following money, but reporting about those activities that aid the generation of the money.Minister Mambury Njie on the other hand said, “Journalism has a very pivotal role to play in our modern society beyond its traditional role of news dissemination,” adding, “I must state without any fear of contradiction that, if our aim as leaders and policy makers is to transform our societies, then Journalism is a key tool to achieve this.”He described economic and financial reporters as “effective liaisons between economists and financial experts and policy makers,” who he noted make economic policy decisions that affect the economic welfare of the people of their country. Mambury Njie, Minister of Finance, The GambiaIn order for the ordinary people to understand the technicalities and jargons associated with economic and financial decisions, Minister Njie said, it is the responsibility of the journalists to do, which makes them important people in the development of society and democratic governance.“But this is an enormous responsibility. So, in recognizing the importance of your role, it is imperative that we further equip you for the job, and impart the skills and knowledge needed to get the job done well,” Minister Njie said.He said this step coincides with the responsibility the policy makers, him included, have to provide journalists with knowledge and skills that are needed to be translated into everyday parlance for the common man.He further added, “If we want citizens to adhere to and support the policies that we as policy makers are formulating, then we must make sure that those policies are well articulated and explained to the citizens using simple terms that are easily understood by the public at large,” Minister Njie added.He said this trend taken by the IMF is a way of collaborating with the Gambian Government to further capacitate the skills of Economic and Financial journalists in a meaningful and impactful way.Participants for the seminar were drawn from The Gambia, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Liberia. They comprise mainly broadcast and print journalists with experience in reporting economic and financial matters.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Foolish’ promise sparks search for truth

first_img• Video: Disappearance of Tommy Bowman PASADENA – Weston DeWalt didn’t set out to explain Tommy Bowman’s disappearance from the Arroyo Seco 50 years ago. It was after interviewing Tommy’s father, Eldon Bowman, that the 62-year-old Pasadena author impulsively made a “foolish” promise to figure out what happened to Bowman’s son. “I had heard hundreds of stories of loss during my work as an investigative filmmaker and writer,” DeWalt said. “Wives told me of husbands who had disappeared into prisoner-of-war camps … friends of high-altitude mountaineers recalled fellow climbers who had vanished without a trace; parents in Mozambique tearfully remembered their children who had been kidnapped and forced into service as child soldiers, never to be seen again.” DeWalt first learned of Tommy’s disappearance in late 2004, after returning from Moscow and warming himself on the trails of the Arroyo Seco. He began reading old stories from the Pasadena Star-News and became as intrigued by the mystery as he was perplexed as a father. “There were also the memories of my own walks on similar trails, my sons running ahead – just out of sight, just beyond the reach of my protection,” he said. “It could have happened to my sons. It could happen to anybody’s kids.” It was a chance meeting along the trail that Tommy disappeared on with someone who had been part of the original search that motivated DeWalt to contact Eldon Bowman. At that time, his intent was to write a book about how one family had coped with unexplained loss for five decades. On the surface, the disappearance of one child doesn’t seem to match the scope of subjects in DeWalt’s resume, which includes American prisoners of war killed in the nuclear strike on Hiroshima, child soldiering in Africa and debunking Jon Krakauer’s celebrated account of a Mount Everest climbing disaster. But it was the same motive behind this project as his others, DeWalt said – to give people answers, some justice and possible closure to tragic loss they’ve suffered. After connecting deceased serial killer Mack Ray Edwards to Bowman’s disappearance, and learning of evidence that could have made that connection sooner, DeWalt had his own emotional response. “More than anything else, it’s made me angry,” he said. When he wasn’t flipping through document archives or knocking on doors, DeWalt said much of his research occurred on the Internet inside his fastidiously organized home office in west Pasadena. Detective Vivian Flores of the LAPD’s Cold Case Homicide Unit contrasts her own impulsive and emotional style to Weston’s quiet and cautious approach. “If it wasn’t for Weston and his intuition,” the case would have remained cold, she said. “He should have been a detective.” DeWalt plans to publish his book on Tommy’s disappearance next year. todd.ruiz@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4444 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The mystery remains

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Miller, Los Angeles County’s only forensic anthropologist, can approximate the age, sex, race and height of a person if she has just four of their bones: a skull, a leg bone, a rib, and a pelvis. But information beyond that is often hard to come by, she said. Despite the impression given by television crime dramas like “CSI,” more specific information, like how long the victim has been dead or how they got there, is almost impossible to figure out. “Human remains can skeletonize as fast as a week if they’re out in the desert,” Miller said. “But if it’s cold enough, tissue can last for thousands of years.” The fastest way for any human to be stripped down to its bones, says Miller, is for animals to eat the body. An exposed body out in the open desert, for example, might be scavenged by coyotes or vultures. But a body left in an average Los Angeles household wouldn’t last a whole lot longer. “You might think Fido or your cat is your best friend, but as soon as you die, they are going to eat you,” said Miller. A pet owner herself, Miller said that in some cases, a dog will choose to starve to death itself rather than eat its owner, but that cats aren’t quite so loyal. Miller’s job requires her to be called to a crime scene at any hour of the day or night any time a bone, or something resembling a bone, is found. Many times the discovery is a false alarm. “I’ve gotten called out for fake rubber skulls, for animal bones of all kinds,” said Miller. “One time I got called out for a deer skull with intact antlers just in case it might be human.” If the remains are human, and there are enough pieces to make a complete profile of the person, the next step is for an investigator in the identification department to try to figure out who the person might have been. Dan Machian, a longtime coroner investigator, is the one who gets to try to link the remains to a once-living human, a process that usually is not successful. First, Machian searches the state’s database for a person that fits the profile: the right age, sex, height and race. If he is lucky enough, there won’t be too many matches. Then, Machian attempts to link individual cases with the remains, based on where the body was found. “We would look at whether the person had a reason to be in the place where the body was found,” said Machian. “For example, if he was found in the woods, was he a hiker?” Machian also sends samples for DNA analysis to a crime lab in Richmond, Va. If there is tissue left on the skeleton there is a good chance of getting a good sample, but DNA can also be extracted from bone marrow. Unfortunately, the backlog of cases can be immense, and it usually takes months to get a DNA report, says Machian. When he does get the report, there are no guarantees that he will get a match, because the person’s DNA may not be on record. If neither of these methods yields any results, the office will also try to match dental records with the teeth found on the skeleton. And, if none of that works, a last attempt to solve the case would be to have a sketch artist make a rendering of what the person’s face looked like, with age, race, the nose, and cheekbone structure becoming factors in the sketch. In his three years since moving into the identification department, Machian says he has only seen this work once. “We released the sketch to papers and TV news, and a family called us back saying they knew who it was,” said Machian. After that, investigators did a DNA analysis from the skeletal remains, which were found stuffed in a chimney in an abandoned halfway house. The DNA sample from the remains matched the family member, who had been missing since 1977. After almost 30 years, his family finally got some closure. But many other families are not so lucky. According to the state Department of Justice, there are almost 2,900 unidentified bodies in California, the highest in the nation. “There are so many homeless people in Los Angeles County, and no one reports them missing,” said Beth Miller. She said another problem is that L.A. County has many people coming from out of town who might only have been reported missing in another state. Meanwhile, says Miller, juries and the general public expect that investigators should be able to provide perfect detail about who a person is, and fast. “Jury members are shocked when I can’t tell them someone’s exact age, or that I can’t just send their DNA to the lab and get a perfect match hours later,” said Miller. She attributes it to the “CSI effect,” a phenomenon documented by several studies since 2005 that show that viewers of the criminal drama show expect more from forensic science than those who do not watch. When asked what aspects of the show were most inaccurate, Miller thought briefly and answered, “all of it.” Besides the difficulties that come from a huge homeless population, and a large number of people recently arrived from out of town, Los Angeles is also a challenging for forensics because of the many different climatic zones. “We have it all, from high desert to coastal plain, to just about everything,” said Miller. “In total, there are about 22 different climatic zones, and bodies decompose at different rates in each one.” As the only forensic anthropologist in a county with so many challenges, Miller feels pretty lucky. “My work is like doing an interesting puzzle,” said Miller. “I don’t plan to stop anytime soon.” dan.abendschein@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2105 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST – A volunteer search- and-rescue team on a training exercise a mile or so from Chantry Flat saw a human skeleton stuck in the hilly underbrush. Within a few hours, the hills was filled with police, rangers and coroner’s investigators. But with little or no tissue intact to test for DNA, and no recent reports of violent crimes nearby, the investigators could only guess at whose skeleton they found in the forest in late August. So they turned to Beth Miller. last_img read more

Nonprofit is at work to save the unwanted

first_imgProject Cuddle was started by Debbe Magnusen, 50. She adopted five children in addition to her two biological offspring. The organization operates on a budget of about $250,000. In recent weeks, Project Cuddle has been sending brochures and an educational DVD to about 3,400 schools in the state. In 10 years, Magnusen has assembled a national network of about 2,000 volunteers who respond to the 24-hour Project Cuddle hotline, (888) TO-CUDDLE, to rescue an unwanted child. Magnusen said the average age of a mother who gives up her baby is 22. Many are fearful of social services or come from abusive or foster homes themselves, she said. Some have been raped. Magnusen describes their condition as “pregnexia” – similar to anorexia – where they’re paralyzed with fear and cannot accept their pregnancy.

The infant girl, Tsi Tsi, was from Alhambra, born out of an affair between two people married to others. Her mother risked losing her marriage if she kept the child. Could they drop the baby off at the Mays’ Pasadena home? Bill borrowed a baby carseat from a neighbor and soon a man in a Mercedes sports car – the infant’s father – arrived with a baby basket. He left the child and never returned. That was more than six years ago. The girl was quickly adopted by a loving family. She is one of 545 children across the country saved by Project Cuddle, a nonprofit organization that Bill May serves as a board member.

Between 2001, when the Safe Haven law went into effect, and January of this year, there are still more newborns abandoned than surrendered. According to the California Department of Social Services, 122 newborns have been surrendered under the law, but 130 have been found alive after being illegally abandoned. The department does not keep track of abandoned babies found dead because the circumstances surrounding their deaths are unknown, officials said. On March 12, a baby girl was abandoned and left to die in Alhambra. The death of Therese Rose – who was “adopted,” named and buried by members of St. Therese Catholic Church – shocked the community. Project Cuddle, based in Costa Mesa and Pasadena, exists to provide mothers with an alternative solution. According to officials from the organization, infants continue being abandoned because of a lack of education and the fact that mothers are afraid to encounter institutions at their time of greatest vulnerability. Mothers with unwanted pregnancies are often living with a secret, hiding their baby from everyone, May said. “The last thing she wants to do is walk into a fire station and abandon a baby to her hero – the fireman,” he said. last_img read more
