It’s Crucial Appeal

first_img Anthony Nunes’ SOY EL SENOR closed for second behind POKER STAR’s 1:13.0 for six furlongs in his last run and will more than likely start favourite with a half-furlong more to travel. However, he has topweight 126lb and is not the most alert at the start of his races. CRUCIAL APPEAL has the class to sit off the pace again and pounce on the leaders before SOY EL SENOR winds up for his kick in the stretch run. Racing against the country’s top sprinters in April’s grade one Lady Geeta Trophy at six furlongs, CRUCIAL APPEAL ran an even race for fourth, beaten by SIEMPRE BUENO, CHACE THE GREAT and MONEY MAGNET, who only had a length on him in third place. It should be noted that Saturday’s five-furlong straight Reggae Trophy for grade one horses was won by CHACE THE GREAT, closing to beat SIEMPRE BUENO and MONEY MAGNET, the trio which CRUCIAL APPEAL was a little under four lengths behind in April. Though he hasn’t won on the round course in a while, CRUCIAL APPEAL’s six-furlong Lady Geeta run suggests he might have lost his tearaway speed but not class and could be transforming into a run-on sprinter. FAVOURITE Red-hot apprentice and leading rider Anthony Thomas has been given the task of trying to get renowned speedster CRUCIAL APPEAL stay the distance in this afternoon’s overnight allowance at six and a half furlongs. Thomas was aboard the ageing warrior two Saturdays ago when he showed an interesting side of himself, running on strongly inside the last furlong to get within a head of shock winner BIMINI at five furlongs round on July 7. CRUCIAL APPEAL literally lost the race by one hop, closing from six lengths off a furlong out, not the normal position for the eight-year-old, who has on occasions threatened the five-furlong straight track record throughout his career. Apparently pleased with CRUCIAL APPEAL’s come-from-behind run, new trainer Alford Brown has ambitiously stretched out the chestnut gelding, keeping Thomas astride to utilise his five-pound apprentice claim and great form, which has landed him six winners in the last three race meets. SIR BUDGET is again the contending speed after mixing it up with POLLY B, causing both to be swallowed by BIMINI. However, he returns with 121lb and should have the likes of LIGHTNING LILY and DANCING QUEEN pressing him on the lead at 110 and 111lb, respectively.last_img read more

S/Court Upholds Decision against Subah-Belleh in US$100K Damages

first_imgAfter reviewing the evidence on the record, the Supreme Court has upheld the lower court’s decision that defendant Nelson Oniyama had title and the right of possession to 3.31 acres of land situated at Bushrod Island in Monrovia, which had been a subject of ejection since 2010.The decision was reached with a vote of three (3) in favor and two (2) against among the five justices of the Supreme Court.Those Justices in favor were Associate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh, Associate Justice Philip A.Z. Banks and Associate Justice Sie-A.Nyene G. Yuoh, while Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor and Associate Justice Jamesetta H. Wolokollie were against the decision. The  case was filed in the Supreme Court by lawyers representing Pewu Subah and Willie Belleh arguing that the Civil Law Court  denied their request for a new trial and refused to reverse its  jury verdict declaring defendant Oniyama not liable (not guilty)  in an  “Action of Ejection,” lawsuit, for which they were claiming US$100,000 in damages.Pewu Subah and Willie Belleh jointly owned the Subah-Belleh and Associate, a Liberian professional group that has been providing management consultancy and research services in the country.But, upholding the lower court’s decision, Associate Justice Philip A. Z. Banks, now Justice in Chambers, who delivered the High Court’s opinion,  declared that “the trial judge confirming the jury verdict to award the property to defendant Nelson Oniyama, being in accordance with the facts and the law, said verdict and judgment are hereby affirmed.”Defending their actions, Justice Banks said, they (three justices) reviewed the facts and circumstances presented in the case, including oral arguments advanced by the parties and the contention in their respective briefs.“Having carefully examined the law governing and applicable to ejection matters; they were satisfied that the    plaintiff (Subah-Belleh) did not meet the evidentiary burden of proof standard required under our law relating to ejection cases,” Justice Banks further clarified.He went on to instruct the Clerk of Court” to send a mandate to the Civil Law Court, commanding the judge presiding therein to resume jurisdiction over the case, and to proceed to enforce the judgment of the court in accordance with the law. Cost is adjudged against the plaintiff, Pewu Subah and Willie Belleh.”Prior to Justice Banks’ ruling, the jury of the Civil Law Court returned from their room of deliberation and came down with an unanimously non-liable (non-guilty) verdict in favor of defendant Oniyama, concluding that he had title and the right of possession to the disputed property.They also denied Subah and Belleh US$100,000 damages claimed against defendant Oniyama.Immediately, after the jury verdict, lawyers of Subah and Belleh asked the court to set-it aside and order a new trial because, they argued, said verdict was clearly contrary to the weight of the oral and documentary evidence adduced by the defendant during the trial.Equally convinced that the plaintiffs (Subah and Belleh) had failed to meet the requisite burden of proof standard governing ejection, the court went ahead and denied their request  and proceeded to enter final judgment against them.It was based on the decision that Subah and Belleh appealed before the Supreme Court to review the ruling of the lower court.The case emerged on May 9, 2011, when Subah and Belleh lawyers complained to the lower court, arguing that defendant Nelson Oniyama had encroached on property, which they had ownership to by virtue of a deed alleged to have been issued in their favor by one John G.T. Nagbe, purported administrator of the Intestate Estate of the late G. Koffa Nagbe.They further alleged that in 1985, the Monthly and Probate Court for Montserrado County, upon the request of John G. T. Nagbe, administrator of the Intestate Estate of the late G. Koffa Nagbe, issued a court’s decree of sale of real property.They said, in 1986, John G.T. Nagbe as administrator of the estate sold a certain parcel of land containing 3.31 acres to them.They also said that after they were given the property they further lease it to Lemminkainen O.Y., a Finish construction company, which was operating in Liberia.Unfortunately, Subah and Belleh claimed that in July 2008, the same Monthly and Probate Court issued letters of administration to one Agnes S, Nagbe, claiming to be another heir of the Nagbe estate. By then, they alleged, John G.T. Nagbe, who was the original administrator, had died.“On the strengthen of those letters of administration, Agnes S. Nagbe sold the 3.31 acres of land to defendant Nelson Oniyama ,” they alleged in their lawsuit.Shortly after obtaining the administrator ‘s deed, Subah and Belleh alleged, “Oniyama began to assert title to and authority over the land , which they appealed to the  Civil Law Court to evict him and to compensate them with US$100,000 for the more than two (2) years during which he had deprived them of the property.In counter argument, Oniyama’s lawyers pled with the court to dismiss the complaint, arguing that their client on July 11, 2008 acquired through a genuine purchase the parcel of land from the Intestate Estate of the late G. Koffa Nagbe, comprising 3.31 acres of land which is the subject of ejection.According to him, before he could purchased the property,  notices  to survey it were published on several occasions  in the Inquirer newspaper and also announced on radio , thereby giving notice to other interested parties , if  any, that they were about to purchase the said parcel of land.Thereafter, they conducted the survey on June 6, 2008, “even though many persons appeared including one Jones, believed to be a surveyor of Subah-Belleh Associate, but not a single person objected to the said re-survey,”  Oniyama further claimed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

United, City set up League Cup showdown

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s English midfielder Michael Carrick (R) scores his team’s first goal against Northampton Town in Northampton, central England, on September 21, 2016 © AFP / Ben StansallLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 22 – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and his Manchester City rival Pep Guardiola were dealt an English Football League Cup rendezvous after both teams came through their third-round ties on Wednesday.United won 3-1 at third-tier Northampton Town to ease some of the pressure building on Mourinho following three consecutive defeats, while holders City prevailed 2-1 at Swansea City. Tottenham Hotspur were rewarded with a trip to Liverpool after crushing Gillingham 5-0 and West Ham United will face Chelsea after scraping past fourth-tier Accrington Stanley.“We deserved to win,” Mourinho told Sky Sports after goals from Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera and substitute Marcus Rashford took his side into the fourth round.Mourinho, speaking before the draw had been made, added: “It was difficult, as I was expecting, but we were totally in control for the 35 minutes and then for the last 45 minutes.Manchester United’s Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho (L) and Manchester United’s Portuguese assistant manager Rui Faria react during the match at the Sixfields Stadium in Northampton © AFP / Ben Stansall“It was a difficult match, but overall a positive performance.”Mourinho, who felt that Northampton’s Jak McCourt should have been sent off for a rash challenge on Memphis Depay, did not attend his post-match press conference.United’s victory was a welcome tonic for Mourinho and his team following consecutive losses to Manchester City, Feyenoord and Watford.He made nine changes to the side beaten 3-1 at Watford on Sunday, with Chris Smalling and captain Wayne Rooney the only players to keep their places.Rooney started up front, for the first time since last season, and squandered an early opportunity by miscuing from Ashley Young’s cross.United went ahead in the 17th minute after Northampton goalkeeper Adam Smith was penalised for picking up a back-pass.Rooney’s shot from the ensuing free-kick hit the wall, but Carrick swept the rebound into the top-left corner from the edge of the box.Rooney then saw a goal ruled out for offside, but Northampton gave United a scare when Kenji Gorre clipped the bar in the 38th minute and within four minutes the home side were level.– Kompany concern –Northampton’s English striker Alex Revell (L) vies in the air with Manchester United’s Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera © AFP / Ben StansallAfter Marcos Rojo, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Morgan Schneiderlin all spurned chances to clear, Daley Blind tripped Sam Hoskins and Alex Revell stroked the resulting penalty past Sergio Romero.Mourinho waited only 10 minutes in the second half before turning to the bench, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rashford replacing Fosu-Mensah and Depay.Herrera gave Northampton a warning with a left-foot shot that struck the post and in the 68th minute he restored United’s lead, slamming home right-footed from Rashford’s lay-off.Another Smith error allowed United to seal victory, the goalkeeper hesitating as a long ball bounced towards him, which allowed Rashford to steal in and lash the ball into the vacant goal.Premier League pace-setters Manchester City made it nine wins from nine games under Guardiola with victory at Swansea.Manchester City’s midfielder Aleix Garcia (C right) congatulates Gael Clichy (C left) after Clichy scores his team’s first goal against Swansea © AFP / Geoff CadickCity enjoyed the best of the first half, but it took until four minutes into the second half for Gael Clichy to put them ahead with a deflected shot.Aleix Garcia made the most of a rare start by netting the second from Jesus Navas’s cut-back in the 67th minute before Gylfi Sigurdsson stabbed in a stoppage-time consolation for Swansea.Guardiola gave a first start of the season to captain Vincent Kompany, who underwent thigh surgery in May, but the Belgium centre-back had to go off late on after appearing to injure himself.“The doctors are speaking with him and seeing what’s up,” Guardiola said.“Hopefully, it will not be a big problem.

Skeleton coach of U.S. put on leave

first_img “Everyone is entitled to a fair hearing,” said Dan Goodwin, the vice president of the federation’s board and its legal counsel. “It’ll be a thorough process. We’re going to gather the facts and the committee will make a recommendation to the review board and the board will act however it deems fit.” The two athletes 2002 Olympic gold medalist Tristan Gale and longtime slider Felicia Canfield claim Nardiello has made sexual advances and explicit comments toward female racers, Goodwin said. Husker AD was guarded Nebraska athletic director Steve Pederson was guarded by a state trooper during a home football game last month after investigators determined a credible threat had been made against him and his family. The decision for the Nov. 12 game against Kansas State, first reported Saturday by the Omaha World-Herald, apparently stemmed from a Nov. 9 column written by 23-year-old Ben Schwartz that appeared in the North Platte Bulletin, a weekly newspaper published in Pederson’s hometown. “Tell me it’s wrong to call up Steve Pederson’s house at three in the morning, breathe heavily into the phone and then whisper, ‘I’m going to kill your children,” ” Schwartz wrote after Nebraska lost its third straight, 40-15 to Kansas. Schwartz, who is now attending radio broadcasting school in Minnesota, said he received a call from state patrol investigators a few days after the column ran. The newspaper’s publisher, Frank Graham, also said he was contacted by investigators. “I don’t think they thought I was a threat to Steve Pederson,” Schwartz said Saturday. “They thought someone would read my column and be inspired to hurt his kids.” Schwartz, who called his column “completely inappropriate,” wrote a follow-up the next week apologizing for his comments. NFL bound North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams said he will likely leave school early and enter the NFL draft. “Obviously, I’m leaning in that direction,” he said after the Meineke Car Care Bowl. “I will make that announcement next week.” Williams, a 6-foot-7, 290-pound junior, broke the Wolfpack career sacks record on Saturday when he had two against South Florida. He now has 26 for his career and helped N.C. State (7-5) close the season with a three-game winning streak. “I got more stats than some guys have the whole season,” Williams said. “That proves a point for me and my team, for us to bounce back like that and win a bowl game and shut a team out.” Williams also holds the school record for tackles for losses, adding four more to that total on Saturday to bring it to 55 ½. Randa returns to Pirates Joe Randa never wanted to leave Pittsburgh eight years ago when the Pirates didn’t protect him in the expansion draft. When he finally got the chance to go back, Randa didn’t hesitate to rejoin them. Randa signed his $4 million, one-year contract Saturday, three days after reaching terms and going through a mandatory team physical. He fills the Pirates’ need for an experienced third baseman who can take advantage of PNC Park’s spacious left-center gap to hit for extra bases. Hingis set to play Martina Hingis’ return to competitive tennis will come Monday against 63rd-ranked Maria Vento-Kabchi of Venezuela. Hingis, who retired from the WTA Tour in 2002 because of ankle, heel and foot injuries, drew Vento-Kabchi for her first-round match at the Australian Women’s Hardcourt Championships in Gold Coast, Australia. The 25-year-old Swiss player, a former world No. 1, plans to play in the upcoming Sydney International and the Australian Open on Jan. 16.

Fulham make £15m bid for Dwight Gayle after Newcastle put striker up for sale

first_img1 Fulham have tabled a £15million bid for Newcastle striker Dwight Gayle after it became clear the player could be available.The bid was received on Wednesday morning hours after reports of the London club’s interest in the 26-year-old emerged.The Magpies are understood to value last season’s 23-goal leading scorer at closer to £20million, although may yet be prepared to settle for somewhere between the two figures.However, they will not consider doing business with Fulham or anyone else until they have a replacement lined up amid speculation that they have an interest in Liverpool’s Divock Origi.Manager Rafael Benitez is prepared to sacrifice Gayle, who he bought for £10million from Crystal Palace last summer, after a recent drop in form.He has already drafted in Stoke’s Joselu in a £5million deal and has admitted he is looking for a different type of striker to complement the Spaniard.Benitez has been forced to rebuild for the Premier League on a budget at a time when other clubs are investing heavily, and is having to free up resources – Emmanuel Riviere and Siem de Jong have left the club in the last week or so and Grant Hanley could soon join them – to open the door for further incomings.

Maybe I got the changes wrong, but I was expecting a lot more from my players.“We changed systems in the first half because we were not coping with Bristol’s forward play.“There were chances for us either side of half-time and when you are not playing well you have to take them.“We didn’t do that either. I know we will be better against Chelsea on Saturday, but that isn’t much consolation at the moment.”Hughes continued: “I don’t know whether the players underestimated Bristol, but they were certainly warned not to. We just couldn’t get our game going and they were better.” Mark Hughes praised Bristol City following the Championship side’s 2-0 win over Stoke last_img read more
