Allen “Apache” Bornor: “I believe that I can ably represent the interest of my colleagues and motorcyclists across the country.”A 31-year old commercial motorcyclist, Allen Bornor commonly known as “Apache”, has declared his intention to contest the senatorial seat vacated by Senator Jewel Howard-Taylor, now Liberia’s Vice President.Bornor, a 12th grade student of the government run high school in Gbarnga, the Dolokelen Gboveh High, is now one of nine persons whose names have popped up to contest the seat.Apache told the Daily Observer in an interview on Tuesday that he threw his hat into the ring because motorcyclists need representation in the Bong County Legislative Caucus, adding, “I believe that I can ably represent the interest of my colleagues and motorcyclists across the country.”“We have never been regarded as imperative component of the society; people see us as troublemakers, which we are not. So we want to prove to people that we are motorcyclists with potentials. We have the numbers so let no one underestimate us. Again, we have been used by politicians during elections and have gotten nothing in return; that’s why we have decided to support one of our own,” declared Apache.Bornor, who hopes to run on the ticket of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), said the Bong Motorcycle Union has over 10,000 registered motorcyclists in the county, which means the union has a massive membership base.“We have been touring the 15 administrative districts in Bong County and we have received words of commitment and encouragement from motorcyclists,” he said.“I have nine bikes in traffic now that my friends are using to make their living. That’s what I have been doing to send myself to high school and to empower my colleagues.” -ApacheThe other candidates vying for the senatorial seat vacated by Taylor include: Jeremiah Sulunteh, Liberia’s former Ambassador to the United States of America and vice standard bearer of Alexander Cummings’ Alternative National Congress; Dr. Henrique Tokpah, former Internal Affairs Minister and former President of the Episcopal run Cuttington University; Fairnoh Gbilah, former Liaison Officer between the state of Maryland in the United States of America and Bong County; and Emmanuel Lomax, former campaign manager of Liberty Party in the just ended 2017 presidential and legislative elections.Other candidates eyeing the senatorial seat include Bong County Superintendent Selena Polson-Mappy; Lester Paye, outgoing District #4 representative who lost his seat to Robert Womba of Unity Party; and businessman Orando Zarwolo, who lost his bid for the electoral District #3 seat in the October 2017 elections.Apache was among the group of motorcyclists that petitioned the former Mayor of Gbarnga, Marvin Cole, to contest the electoral District #3 seat, which he won in the October 10 elections, defeating George Mulbah.A native of Yellequelleh District, Apache said he became a commercial motorcyclist in 2000, and after generating sufficient profits, he built a three bedroom house and bought two cars for commercial transport.“I have nine bikes in traffic now that my friends are using to make their living. That’s what I have been doing to send myself to high school and to empower my colleagues,” he revealed.“We motorcyclists have been marginalized; and if I am elected, I will help my colleagues realize their potentials through life skills training (vocational training).”Some commercial motorcyclists who spoke with this paper said they want someone of their own to represent them in the Senate, and they feel that they can better rely on Apache for development “than the master’s degree holders that are around in the community.”The motorcyclist union has played a major role in Bong County elections since the 2011 presidential and legislative elections. They were influential in the election of Henry Yallah, a former Bong County student leader, who defeated then Superintendent Rennie Banama Jackson in the 2011 election.During the 2014 senatorial election, the motorcyclists campaigned massively for Jewel Howard-Taylor, who was reelected.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

0Shares0000Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola pictured before kick-off in the English Premier League match between his side and Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s stadium in Huddersfield, northern England on November 26, 2017LONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 1 – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has demanded more protection for players after seeing Kevin De Bruyne narrowly avoid serious injury as his side’s 18-game winning streak came to an end.De Bruyne was stretchered off after being hacked down by Crystal Palace’s Jason Puncheon as City broke in search of a late winner at Selhurst Park on Sunday following Ederson’s penalty save from Luka Milivojevic. The Belgium midfielder’s injury is not as bad as first feared but Guardiola said he was unlikely to be ready to face Watford at the Etihad on Tuesday.There was worse news about City striker Gabriel Jesus, who hobbled off in the first half with a knee problem that will sideline the Brazilian for at least “one month, maybe two months”, Guardiola said.His main concern, though, was the tackle by Puncheon, the latest in a series of challenges the manager believes could have inflicted serious injury on his players in recent games.“I admire the physicality in the Premier League but the referees have to protect the players,” said the Catalan. “Not just the best players. All the players.“I haven’t spoken to the FA (Football Association) about it. They focus on diving, on these kind of things. I know the contact is allowed here more than any other country but there is a limit.”Guardiola said there was no need to change the physical style of English football but he called for a balance.“There is a line where you go above and it is dangerous,” he said. “We are lucky with the players in the recent past they are still here. Sometimes because the football is quicker and faster it happens, they don’t want to hurt the other. But they can be out for a long time.”“We were lucky against Tottenham and against Newcastle. Today we were not lucky,” he added.– Sanchez signing? –The loss of Jesus could strengthen City’s resolve to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez during the January transfer window, although Guardiola played down the possibility of a move for the Chile international.“He is a player for Arsenal and I think he is going to stay there,” said the City boss. “In two days we have another game (and) after that we have meetings. My feeling now is Alexis is an Arsenal player.”City are 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League table after dropping points for the first time since the second game of the season.Wilfried Zaha won Palace’s late penalty after Raheem Sterling was adjudged to have fouled him, capping another outstanding performance by the Ivory Coast international, who has been linked with a January move away from Selhurst Park.But when asked if he will be staying at the club, Zaha said: “Yep, I am.”Palace manager Roy Hodgson also has to contend with injuries ahead of his side’s trip to Southampton with centre-back Scott Dann suffering a knee injury, joining fellow defenders Mamadou Sakho and Joel Ward on the sidelines.“We’ve stretched our resources to the absolute limit,” said Hodgson.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

Well, we might as well be the worst drivers in Ireland when we finished second to Dublin following a recent survey carried out by the AA on 7,000 drivers.This comes following a recent judgement by the National Geographic Magazine, saying that Donegal is the coolest place to live in the whole world.Wasn’t he lucky the man from the National Geographic that he didn’t run into one of the AA’s 7,000 on his way around the coolest place in the world? Advertisement The AA have their say on what 7,000 driver think of the driving in Donegal, and it’s not good.So can both of these titles live together in the one county? I have to say I am as proud of Donegal as the next man or woman but have to be honest and say I can see this problem from both sides of the coin.The price of being beautiful! So at the flip of a survey the coolest place in the world has suddenly become the second worse place in Ireland to drive. How could this be the same place?I have included a picture of Rathmullan that I recently captured at the end of a great days weather. It’s not hard to see how places like this make Donegal so amazing to visitors. Advertisement A view of Rathmullan pictured from across Lough Swilly, just one of the sights that people think is so special about Donegal as long as you can put up with their driving. Photo Brian McDaidIt’s a different story if you are stuck in the traffic on a sunny Sunday afternoon trying to get to a location like this.The majority of drivers that use the roads of Donegal except the volume of traffic on Donegal roads and plan their journey and by now know to expect delays at peak traffic times. The majority of drivers on Donegal road respect other road users but it only takes the one disrespectful driver to change the attitude of the drivers around him or her.It’s so easy due to the action of one driver who decides to pass a line of traffic, to flip the button on other fellow drivers who in seconds can developed into a road battle.Our two neighbouring counties, Leitrim and Sligo fared the best in the survey and as a regular visitor to Galway I would have to agree with them. Unfortunately for me is more to do with businesses closing down in small villages like Ballincarrow in Co. Sligo that make these places so quiet and peaceful where the only bit of life that you are likely to see is the speed van sitting in the the closed down petrol station and convenience store in the middle of the town.I wonder if the AA Insurance, who carried out the survey will give the people of Sligo and Leitrim a reduction in the their next car insurance based on the survey they carried out.Bad driverThe examiner looked out over his glasses at me. After a short pause he said, on this occasion, “Mr. McDaid you were unsuccessful in your driving test.” “Unsuccessful! Unsuccessful!”, I screamed silently into myself, “how could I be unsuccessful?”He placed my test sheet in front of me on the table, it was covered in black biro pen marks. It’s was like a nightmare to me. I couldn’t tell him that I was driving for nearly 10 years even though I was still only 17 years of age. The examiner started, “driving too close to parked cars. No use of rear view mirror, failing to give way at a yield sign.”These were just three of the faults that the examiner pointed out on my test paper. My late father was the man that taught me to drive. Mirrors was the most important thing to him, adjust them before you go anywhere he always said. Then if he seen you moving your head when you were driving he would say, didn’t I tell you about your mirrors.My mirrors were adjusted perfectly on the day of my test, so well adjusted that the examiner never even seen me looking into them! When I did my test in Letterkenny there was two-way traffic on the main street. Outside the post office was the narrowest part of town. I was so proud of the way I judged our Hilman Avenger down through that part of the town. I could put that car through the eye of a needle, my examiner will be so impressed with me, or so I thought.CrossviewI had to ask the instructor where on my test did I not yield to traffic and he told me it was on the High Rd. at Crossview House. I remember saying to him I did yield when I had a good view down the Port Rd when I could see if there was something coming up!I was so mad with the driving examiner that day. At 17 years of age I felt that I even was a better driver than him, even though I never seen him drive.It wasn’t long until I was back to resit my driving test again. I so wanted to show the examiner how good a driver I really was, I was taken back a bit when I realised that it was a different examiner on duty for my second test. I was very aware of the faults in my driving test from before so I made sure the tester saw me looking in the mirror at all times. I gave the parked cars at the post office a wide birth this time, and made sure I came to a stop at the yield sign on the High Rd.We completed the test and walked in with the instructor to the office.This instructor didn’t wear glasses, “Mr.McDaid on this occasion you were unsuccessful in your driving test.”I couldn’t even look at the tester as I heard that sentence finishing that included the word unsuccessful. Why is this happening to me? What can be so hard for me to understand about something that I just love to do?My instructor left my test paper down in front of me.Now he was pointing out my faults, driving too slow on the road, lane position and a general lack of confidence on the road were the factors that gave my second tester enough information to conclude that I wasn’t ready to pass my test.He even suggested that I try to get more experience driving on the road before I apply for my next driving test. I never felt as low as the day I left the carpark of the brew offices on the High Rd.That day and days after I went over the “what ifs” in my head again and again and figured that if I had the second driving examiner for my first driving test I would have passed with flying colours.Location location.So after a gap of a year or so and a new MK3 Ford Cortina of my fathers, I was applying for my driving test for the third time. A friend of mine suggested that I had developed too many bad driving habits and was too familiar with driving around my home town of Letterkenny.They suggested that I do my test in Donegal Town where I wouldn’t be so familiar with the roads.So now I am heading through the gap in search of a piece of paper that says I am good enough to get a full driving licence.I pulled in along the road just to check everything was in working order before I got to the test centre. I went to make an adjustment on the passenger seat when the back of it collapsed into the back of the car.In our wisdom to look cool my brother and I fitted high back seats from a 2000E Cortina only to find that the back on the seat was loose, as a temporary measure we were using the passenger seatbelt placed around the back of the seat to keep it in place.As a last minute desperate measure I placed the spare wheel in behind the back of the seat and adjusted the seat back to where it was a tight fit and then covered the spare wheel with my coat.Things went from bad to worse when I realised it was my first examiner, still looking out over his glasses at me who was now about to examine my driving on my third attempt. We both got into the car with very little communication and were out the gate of the test centre and away on my test around Donegal Town. “What if he ask to look at the spare wheel?” I thought, “nah they would never do that.”So we’re are back at the office again. The examiner is taking a lot longer to get organised today as he closes his clipboard and looks out over his glasses at me again.On this occasion, Mr McDaid (long pause) you were successful in your driving examination and I am happy to say you have passed your test.Angry Bird: Our motoring man completed with his L plate who failed his driving test twice before getting it on his third attempt.I never was as happy to pass my driving test on my third attempt. Like myself looking back to those days of my driving test I thought I was a great driver. I could do a perfect hill start I could reverse and do a perfect three point turn. I could even double clutch going up a hill in my father’s ESB lorry. All of these meant little or nothing when I went to sit my driving test.I thought my driving would be enough to cover me in passing my test, but like the 7,000 that considered Donegal to have the most aggressive drivers outside Dublin in their survey, my driving at 17 was aggressive and my tester was right to look out over the top of his glasses at me and say you need to consider other road users as well as yourself.Happy motoring folksDD Motoring: We’re bad drivers? was last modified: April 5th, 2017 by Brian McDaidShare 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:aa surveybrian mc daidcoolest placedd motoring

North West Shotokan Karate Club travelled south recently to compete at the Carlow International Open which was held on the 4th-5th October. This annual karate tournament for children, cadets and seniors, always attracts high quality competitors from across Ireland and the UK, as well as competitors from the Continent and this year was no exception, with all events strongly contested. With NWSKC Head Coach, Mandy McNulty as one of the tournament referees, the team of 11 students was led by assistant coaches Ciara Dullaghan and Emer Dullaghan. The NWSKC students did not disappoint their coaches and supporters, bringing a fantastic 23 medals back to the north-westThe under-14 year old students were first to compete on Saturday, but despite strong performances in their kata and kumite by talented youngsters, Emma Ellis and Hollie Gallagher, they unfortunately finished outside the medal positions on this occasion, such was the quality of the competition. They both gained valuable experience from testing their skills against others from Ireland and abroad.The competition on Sunday saw a change of fortune for the team, as the more experienced students performed strongly in the highly competitive atmosphere. In the Senior Ladies Team Kata event, sisters Ciara, Emer and Elaine Dullaghan proved too strong for all their rivals and their performance brought them gold medals. This was followed by a strong showing by cadets, Laura Browne, Stephen John Carlin and Isobel Walsh whose team kata performance came a close second to a rival team from England and secured silver medals. The individual kata competitions saw more success for Elaine Dullaghan as she achieved her second gold medal of the day. Stephen John Carlin emulated this with his own gold-medal winning kata. Indeed, as the day progressed, these two students gave fantastic displays of skill and determination and by the end of competition had each achieved four gold medals, with Stephen’s silver medal just pushing him ahead of Elaine in their respective individual tallies for the event. Their team-mates added their own successes with James Burke winning a silver medal in his kata event while Laura Browne, Rebecca Burke and Ciara Dullaghan each achieved bronze in their various categories. The Carlow International Open traditionally includes some challenge matches which pit a team selected to represent the host club against an international team, Carlow versus ‘The Rest of the World.’ On this occasion, NWSKC coach Mandy McNulty had the honour of coaching the ‘Rest of the World’ cadet team and both Stephen John Carlin and Elaine Dullaghan of the NWSKC were selected to compete. Both students fought impressively against their opponents and contributed to their team’s victory, winning gold medals in the process. Ciara Dullaghan of NWSKC, was selected to fight for the Carlow team in the senior match and fought skilfully, but again the international team proved too strong for the Carlow challengers and Ciara received a runner-up medal.The excitement and tension of the challenge matches continued into the afternoon as the kumite competition progressed. There were mixed fortunes for NWSKC students. Laura Browne and Elaine Dullaghan fought through to win gold medals in their team kumite, as did Stephen John Carlin and James Burke. Individual kumite events were fiercely contested and the NWSKC students fought skilfully, achieving some successes. Those who secured medals for individual kumite on this occasion were Stephen John Carlin (gold), Laura Browne (silver) and Sloan O’Donnell (silver and bronze). The kumite events brought to an end another successful day for the club. The final medal tally was an impressive 12 gold, 7 silver and 4 bronze medals, with a total of 23 medals brought home to the north-west. As always the medal tally tells only part of the story, however, and all the NWSKC students competed well, gained valuable competition experience and brought great credit to the club with their attitude and conduct. Head Coach Sensei McNulty congratulated all the students who competed and thanked all the club supporters who made the journey to Carlow.PICTURE SPECIAL: NORTH WEST SHOTOKAN KARATE CLUB PERFROM WELL AT INTERNATIONAL CARLOW OPEN was last modified: November 25th, 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:CarlowKarateNorth West Shokotan Karate ClubNoticesSport
BREAKING NEWS: Donegal will take on Kerry in the All-Ireland football quarter-finals after tonight’s draw put Jim McGuinness’s men against Jack O’Connor’s side.Donegal would then meet Cork or Kildare in the semi-final if they overcome Kerry.Kerry could be without Paul Galvin for the tie after he was dismissed during their massive 19-point win over Clare in the qualifiers earlier this evening. Dublin will play against Laois while Kildare’s reward for beating Sligo at Dr Hyde Park was a meeting with Cork while the final fixture will see Connacht champions Mayo take on Down.Ulster Champions Donegal will have probably preferred any of the other teams (perhaps with the exception of the impressive Cork) but Jim McGuinness has always said you have to beat the best to be the best.Kerry may be without Galvin after he was sent off in the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick – but it was unclear if he got a straight red or two yellows, a red ruling him out of the game against Donegal.Kerry hammered Clare, hitting 2-22 for Clare’s 1-06, again showing the critics who wrote them off were way off the mark. It is undoubtedly the tie of the round – with times and days for the games to be decided over the weekend.Let’s all hope it’s Sunday!All-Ireland quarter-final drawCork v KildareDublin v LaoisDonegal v KerryMayo v DownAll-Ireland semi-finals Cork/Kildare v Donegal/KerryDublin/Laois v Mayo/DownTODAY’S RESULTS:Clare1-06–2-22KerrySligo0-04–0-13KildareDown1-13–0-11TipperaryMeath1-12–1-15LaoisGAA: IT’S KERRY – DONEGAL TO MEET KINGDOM IN QUARTER FINALS was last modified: July 29th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)
Two teams in search of their first Moore League victory clashed Friday night at Jordan High. And when the dust had settled, Wilson was on top, 24-15, and the host Panthers were left to search for another week. Senior running back Jeremy Williams carried the ball 22 times for 107 yards and had touchdown runs of one and six yards for the Bruins (1-6, 1-3). Senior quarterback Kyle Kazarian completed 8 of 14 passes for 115 yards, and junior defensive end Charles Green had 12 solo tackles and assisted on three others for Wilson, which hosts Lakewood next week. Jordan (2-5, 0-4) next hosts Cabrillo. Jonathan Breaux had two carries for 55 yards and a touchdown for Bellflower. La Mirada 55, Glenn 7 With an explosive offense and a crushing defense, the visiting Matadores (4-3, 3-1) won the Suburban League matchup. La Mirada got an early jump, scoring 12 points in the first quarter on a pair of touchdown runs from running back George Salcido. The Matadores scored four more touchdowns in the second quarter to eliminate any doubt as to the outcome. Quarterback Trevor Blood was involved in all of the second-quarter scoring, with two touchdown runs and two touchdown passes. La Mirada’s swarming defense simply dominated play the entire night. Josh Lomeli and Chris Dixon recovered Glenn fumbles, Brian Barr and Scott Demoss intercepted passes, and seven different Matadores accounted for tackles for losses. Brian Hawkins scored Glenn’s lone touchdown an 86-yard run in the second quarter. Bob Daily Downey 24, Lynwood 7 Junior running backs Scott Miranda and Darren Tubbs each ran for a score as the Vikings (4-3, 1-1) won the San Gabriel Valley League game against the visiting Knights (1-6, 0-1). Junior wide receiver Keith Shetler caught a scoring pass for Downey, which faces Warren on the road next week. Los Alamitos 26, Marina 0 Quarterback Ross Hill threw two touchdown passes and also rushed for 68 yards as the Griffins (7-0, 2-0) won the Sunset League game. Servite 33, St. John Bosco 31, OT After a furious comeback in which they scored 22 points in the final quarter to force overtime, the Braves fell a two-point conversion short and lost their Serra League game at Cal State Fullerton. Quarterback David Mahr scored for Bosco (3-4, 1-1) to make it 33-31, but the two-point conversion was stopped by Servite (4-3, 1-1), which made its conversion to open overtime. Torrance 55, Centennial 41 The Apaches put up great offensive numbers, but two fumbles led to their demise in a Pioneer League matchup. Sophomore quarterback Chris Smith completed 17 of 24 passes for a school-record 461 yards and five touchdowns. One of the throws went to sophomore receiver Robert Hatchett for 98 yards and a score. Smith also had a rushing touchdown of 30 yards, while Hatchett finished with six catches for 250 yards. All this, however, didn’t amount to much as Torrance scored two touchdowns off Apaches’ turnovers, which proved to be the difference in the game. Notre Dame 49, St. Paul 6 In the Mission League, longtime Knights coach Kevin Rooney picked up his first-ever win at St. Paul after losing there seven times with Notre Dame. The Knights (7-0, 2-0) demonstrated too much team speed for the Swordsmen (3-4, 0-2). Rodney Glass ran for 243 yards on just nine carries and scored four touchdowns for Notre Dame. Lee Barnathan San Pedro 21, Washington 10 Juniors J’Vone Hibbler and Jason Garneau scored fourth-quarter touchdowns to lead the visiting Pirates (5-2, 2-0) back from a 10-6 deficit for a Marine League victory.

Among the stars were junior running back Mark Hernandez (four carries, 58 yards, two touchdowns), senior Jose Rivas (seven carries, 79 yards, one touchdown) and senior defensive back Ernesto Maldanado (three interceptions, one returned for a touchdown). South East fell to 0-8 in its inaugural season.
