A Clark County Superior Court Judge cleared the way for school to start Wednesday even if Evergreen School District teachers vote to strike.Judge Suzan Clark on Friday issued a temporary restraining order requiring Evergreen’s 1,830 teachers to stay on the job through at least the first day of school. The restraining order is a temporary solution granted after the Evergreen School District filed for an injunction to prevent teachers from striking.Clark’s decision comes just days before the union, the Evergreen Education Association, was set to vote Tuesday evening on whether to strike. The order prohibits district employees from striking, coercing other employees from refusing to do their job, interfering with building entrances or taking sick or personal leave to strike.“I’m left in the position where I have to” issue the order, Clark said. “I don’t know what time Tuesday evening the vote is anticipated to take place, but you’re leaving people with less than 12 hours, most likely, to make child care arrangements and things for their children.”Attorneys for the union argue the restraining order will “put the thumb” on the collective bargaining process.“The concern is that the district has really not been engaging, coming to the table, and really working toward a resolution,” said Margaret Olney, an attorney representing the union. “They’re premature by calling out to stop a strike vote when the best way to stop a strike from happening is to come to the table to reach an agreement.”
WASHINGTON — The Senate on Thursday confirmed President Donald Trump’s pick to run the White House budget office, giving the Republicans’ tea party wing a voice in the Cabinet.Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., squeaked through on a 51-49 vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.Arizona Sen. John McCain, who is emerging as perhaps the most vocal GOP critic of the Trump administration, opposed Mulvaney for the nominee’s past House votes supporting cuts to Pentagon spending.“Mulvaney has spent his last six years in the House of Representatives pitting the national debt against our military,” said McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.Senators then gave a tentative 54-46 procedural green light to Trump’s choice to run the Environmental Protection Agency, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt. It was a signal that Pruitt should sail through on a final vote scheduled for Friday, despite being opposed by Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a GOP moderate.Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, two of the party’s more moderate members, backed Pruitt.Mulvaney’s confirmation promises to accelerate work on Trump’s upcoming budget plan, which is overdue. That’s typical at the beginning of an administration. But there is also the need to complete more than $1 trillion in unfinished spending bills for the current budget year, as well as transmit Trump’s request for a quick start on his oft-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall and tens of billions of dollars in emergency cash for the military.

A few dozen dogs barked and wagged their tails, most likely unsure why they were on the St. Joseph Catholic School playground with their school-age owners. Oct. 4 is the feast day for St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and a popular day to hold pet blessings.Besides the pups, Myrtle the turtle, Coco a green-cheeked conure, two ducks and a guinea pig also got to go to school.It was the first time at the annual blessing of the animals for Queenie, a 2-year-old Jersey Wooly rabbit.When asked why she brought Queenie and not her pet dog or cat, which both stayed at home, Lily Standridge, 9, said, “Cause, well, I don’t know. I love the bunny. Maybe next year I’ll bring the cat.”Even Principal Mary Ellen LaRose brought her Boston terrier, Jones, to Wednesday morning’s event.“He’s kind of like the school mascot,” said LaRose, who’s been principal of the school for about a year.She reminded the students to be reverent, a tough task with so many animals around at the beginning of the school day.St. Francis was born into a wealthy family, the son of a cloth merchant, and eventually converted to a life of religious and minimalistic living. He became known for his love of animals and nature, with one story saying he once preached to hundreds of birds.With about 300 students gathered outside, along with some parents toting pets, Rev. Gary Lazzeroni referenced the Book of Genesis, which says that God formed all living creatures and man named all of them.“That’s what God tells us at the very beginning of The Bible, that he entrusted us to give names to the animals. And, all of you have done that with your pets, whether they’re here with you today or they’re at home,” Lazzeroni said.
A variety of bird rarely seen over the last several decades in Clark County was recently spotted here. Now, backyard habitat experts are asking the public to keep their eyes out for the little birdies, and possibly offer them a bit of help.“We want to encourage people to keep an eye out for (Western) bluebirds and to let us know if they see them,” Erika Johnson, coordinator for Clark County Master Gardeners said in a news release. “We may be able to offer nest boxes and help with monitoring.”Johnson said she first spotted a handful of the birds about seven years ago at Heritage Farm on Northeast 78th Street. Then, after the big freeze last winter, she found four of them dead, huddled together in a bird house. That spring she saw a female fly north across 78th Street.The sightings were exciting, but also strange. Neither local birders nor officials from nearby wildlife refuges had records of ever seeing them in Clark County before Johnson spotted them.“It’s a great mystery,” she said in an interview with The Columbian.About the size of a sparrow, the male Western bluebird is a compact little fellow. He has onyx eyes and a matching beak, and looks to be wearing a rust-orange vest over a cobalt blue long-sleeved shirt with a matching blue hood. The female’s appearance is more subdued. She wears a light rust-orange vest washed over a slate-gray body. Her gray wings are accented at the tips with baby-blue feathers.
A 19-year-old man was sentenced Monday morning in Clark County Superior Court to 6½ years in prison for the death of another teenager during a 2017 drug robbery gone wrong.Judge Scott Collier imposed the prosecution’s recommended sentence of 78 months on a charge of first-degree manslaughter against Jaycob Trotter. The sentencing range is actually 95 to 125 months, but Trotter’s sentence was reduced because the court took into account his youth at the time of the crime.Collier addressed the family of the victim, 16-year-old Cesar D. Ortiz-Velasco, at the end of the hearing, stating he took their loss into consideration in making his sentencing decision.“You will never be able to have your son back. I thought about that,” Collier said as family hugged Trotter.Trotter originally faced charges of second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter and hit-and-run resulting in death, court records say. The charges were amended, and Trotter pleaded guilty to the manslaughter charge during Monday’s hearing.
By Sarjo Camara SingatehDr. Samba Ceesay, the acting Director of Health Services, has launched the National Malaria Control Strategy called Seasonal Malaria Chemotherapy (SMC) at Bantanto in the Central River Region on 28th September 2014.With funding and support from UNICEF and the Catholic Relief Services (CRS), this campaign is targeting CRR and URR to reduce the impact of malaria which is key to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, especially on MDGs 4, 5 and 6.“As we launch the 2014 Seasonal Malaria Chemotherapy campaign, we must soberly reflect on the progress made and renew our collective efforts towards eventually eliminating malaria in the Gambia,” said the acting Health Services Director.Dr. Ceesay said SMC is defined as the intermittent administration of full treatment courses of an anti malarial medicine during the malaria season to prevent malarial illness with the objective of maintaining therapeutic anti malarial drug concentration in the blood throughout the period of greatest malarial risk.For his part, Mr. Balla Kandeh, the Manager of the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP), said malaria remains a major public health problem with an estimated burden of 216 million clinical episodes and 655,000 deaths worldwide attributable to malaria in 2010. He said a significant proportion (91%) of reported deaths from malaria occurs in sub-saharan Africa, where children under 5 years of age bear most of the burden.Mr. Kandeh said WHO recommends an additional intervention against plasmodium falciparum malaria, that is the seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC). He said this intervention has been shown to be effective, cost effective, safe and feasible for preventing malaria among children under 5 years of age in the areas with highly seasonal malaria transmission.Mr. Pa Ousman Manneh, the communication officer at the United Nations Children’s Agency (UNICEF) national office, said this year marks the 25th year of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) which is being commemorated globally by UNICEF throughout the year. Mr. Manneh said across the Sahel sub-region most childhood mortality and morbidity are caused by malaria. He said malaria occurs during the rainy season, which is generally short but giving effective anti malarial medication at full treatment doses at appropriate intervals during this period has been shown to prevent illness and deaths from malaria in children. He added that initiating and implementing such preventive lifesaving measures in these most vulnerable regions cannot come at a better time.The Regional Director of Health Services in CRR, Mr. Jankoba Jabi, said in comparing 2011 and 2013 data in his region, they have realised a significant decrease in the number of malaria cases tested positive reduced from 16,762 to 12,702 in 2013. And similarly, he added, the number of deaths due to malaria has also dropped.The representative of CRS, Mr. Ebriama Jarjue, said several strategies are needed to combat malaria and that seasonal malaria chemotherapy is one of them.The Alkali of Bantanto, Mr. Tumani Fatty, welcomed the guests, while the village Imam led the closing prayers.]]>
By Momodou Jarju/ Yankuba JallowThe Chairman of the then Armed Forces Provisional Ruling Council (AFPRC) Yahya Jammeh, had vowed to have cause a lot of families to weep if one of his council members Sanna Sabally, allowed him to join them in foiling the mission of the alleged November 11,1994 coup plotters, the 30th witness of the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC), revealed.John Charles B. Mendy who was an Orderly to Sanna Sabally at the time, said he enlisted into the Army in 1991 after completing Senior School. Mendy said this during his testimony before Commissioners of the TRRC yesterday March 19th 2019.Born in 1972, Mendy said Jammeh told the following to Sanna Sabally: ‘‘I am going with you guys.’’ Mendy said Sanna refused Jammeh’s request to join them and asked him (Jammeh) if he does not trust him. Mendy said Jammeh then swore in Arabic that if he goes with them, a lot of families will weep that night.Mendy told Commissioners that the former AFPRC junta leader said this in the evening of 10th November 1994, as they prepared to embark on that fateful night. He said at that juncture, he started to have mixed-feelings about the whole mission saying, he knew that it was a mission of either to kill or be killed.EARLIER THAT MORNINGMendy explained that on the morning of the 10th of November 1994, he was on duty at State House with the Vice Chairperson of the AFPRC Sanna Sabally, until around 11am when he went to the market to buy some CDs.That upon arrival at State House, he came to know that Council members except Yahya Jammeh, have left for Yundum Barracks. He said he eventually followed them.Mendy said he arrived at Yundum Barracks at around 1pm where he met Council members and the alleged coup plotters in a meeting at the ante-room; adding he was not privy to what was going on inside because he was a private and junior soldier. He said it would not be normal for him to enter especially when one is not invited.According to Mendy, the meeting lasted for over an hour; that while the meeting was ongoing, he could hear yelling and shouting. “You could hear some saying we know what you are up to and others were saying we did not organize anything,” he said.When asked what he understood from that situation, Mendy opined that Council members were trying to convince Lt. Basiru Barrow and co., not to go ahead with their alleged plan; that Sanna Sabally informed him that a list of the alleged coup plotters was with him and they will be silened (killed) if they go ahead with the coup. He testified thereafter, they left Yundum Barracks for State House where the Council members converged upstairs to brief the Chairperson of the junta Yahya Jammeh, about the outcome of the meeting.Testifying further, Mendy said around 5pm, Sanna Sabally and himself went home and took lunch; and in the evening, Sabally called them (himself and Sabally’s other Orderlies and bodyguards) and told them to get to their rooms and dress up in military combat which they did. He said they left for State House where they met other Council members including Yankuba Touray, Saddibou Hydara, Edward Singhateh and other soldiers. He said after the Council members discussed with Yahya Jammeh, they came out and Sanna Sabally briefed them about the mission of foiling an attempted coup.He further revealed that Jammeh came out and told Sanna Sabally that he wanted to go with them which Sanna refused. He added that was when Jammeh vowed that lot of families would have wept if he joined them.SANNA AS LEADER OF THE CONVOY TO YUNDUM BARRACKSMendy continued that a convoy of about forty soldiers boarded in six vehicles and headed to Yundum Barracks. According to him, upon arrival at the barracks, they met one private soldier called AK Touray. He said Sabally told him to “control Touray and should in case he tried to escape, let him finish him.” Mendy however said he let AK Touray to go and told him to say he escaped if he was caught; that thereafter, he went and joined the rest of the convoy at the barracks.Mendy recalled collecting the then Army Commander at the time, Babucarr Jatta, and brought him to Yundum Barracks as ordered by Sanna Sabally, after they had seized the barracks. He said he held side talks with Council members before they drove to Fajara Barracks.MENDY ADMITS INVOLVEMENT IN KILLINGSMendy said when they arrived at Fajara Barracks, Sanna ordered them to fire at the captured soldiers and this was at about 10 to 12 meters away. He added this was around the main gate at the field; that this was the time the shooting started.“I am part and parcel of those who did the shooting,” he confirmed to Commissioners.Mendy further told the TRRC that after the shooting, Lt. Basiru Barrow and Abdoulie Dot. Faal lost their lives while Sir Jackal, Tumbul Tamba and Babucarr Njie (Njie Ponkal), ran away. He said they followed them but could not trace them.He testified that the corpses of Lt. Barrow and Dot. Faal were put in a truck and transported to Yundum Barracks.ALLEGED TORTURE OF SANNA SABALLY’S WIFE AT NIA John Charles B. Mendy also told the Commission that Sanna Sabally’s wife was tortured at the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).Mendy made this disclosure while winding-up his testimony before the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) on Tuesday, 19th March 2019.He said while at the NIA, he heard Barakatou Colley who was the wife of Sanna Sabally yelling, crying and she was saying, ‘you are killing me. You are using (electric) machine on me.’“I concluded that she (Colley) was being tortured and I saw her in the NIA premises,” the witness said.JCB Mendy told the Commission that there was a photographer (journalist) who came to the residence of Sanna Sabally and was trying to take pictures (photos) at the naming ceremony of his (Sabally’s) child, but he was asked to stop. He added that the journalist forcefully took the photo of Sanna Sabally who ordered for the camera to be confiscated and the film (of the camera) to be destroyed.“Was he beaten?” Essa M. Faal, the lead Counsel of the Commission asked.“What I could recall is that he was rushed onto by the guards and myself, and we confiscated the camera and destroyed the film,” the witness adduced.“Was he kicked, slapped and beaten?” the Counsel asked,“It could be. It is likely that he was beaten. There was a push and pull at the time the camera was being confiscated. I cannot confirm that he was beaten or slapped because it was in the midst of a crowd. I only participated in the confiscation of the camera,” the witness responded.The witness added that a day or two after the naming ceremony, Sanna Sabally was arrested and detained. He added that when he enquired from Edward Singhateh about Sanna’s arrest, Singhatey told him that Sanna wanted to kill the “president”. He indicated that he joined the Gambia National Army on the same day with Edward Singhatey and both of them did the army training together and passed out on the same day.Whilst at the office of Edward Singhatey, Almamo Manneh came and asked them to assemble and threatened to deal with them inferring that they were supportive of Sanna. He added that they were rescued by the Chief of Defense Staff, Baboucar Jatta who asked them to go home and report to work on the following Monday.He adduced that on Monday when he reported for work, he was asked to report to the NIA for interrogation. Upon arrival at the NIA, he said he was interrogated and taken to Mile II where he was detained for a night and brought back to the NIA.The witness said he was returned to Mile II where he was detained.“I have never been tortured at Mile II and the NIA though the living condition at Mile II was not conducive,” the witness said.He described the condition at Mile II as horrible. He said they used to sleep on a piece of plank with no blankets. He said their uniforms were taken from them and they were only left with a singlet. He added that they used to sleep in an open hall at the Remand Wing of Mile II.“Our details were taken at Mile though we were not told the offence (s) we were charged with and we were not allowed access to a lawyer or family visit. The food that we were served at Mile II was very horrible that I won’t even give that to a dog,” he said.He told the Commission that he was detained for 641 days at Mile II whereas most of the detainees were released earlier. He said two weeks after his release, he was asked to report to work. He however added that after the Farafenni attack, he was again taken to the NIA for interrogation as it was alleged that his voice was heard there with Sherrif Gomez. He said he was released because it was confirmed that he was with CDS Jatta on that day.Whilst under question and answer with the Commissioners, the witness said Alagie fired at Ebou Ceesay.On his recommendation, the witness said people should not stage a coup because it brings backwardness, misunderstanding and trouble. He beseeched the families of the personnel killed during the days of the AFPRC junta to forgive the wrongdoers (for the purpose of reconciliation). He called on the senior officers in the Gambia Armed Forces not to use their junior ones to embark on a horrible venture as has happened in July 1994. He apologized to all those whom he may have wronged during his six (6) months stay with the Council (AFPRC) and asked for their forgiveness. He called on the President of the Republic to look into the welfare of the soldiers as well as called on him to carry on regular visits in order to acquaint himself with their conditions. He called on the government to support the affected families in terms of providing access to education and feeding because of the loss of their breadwinners.Mendy’s Monday and Tuesday’s testimonies had some difference with previous testimonies by other witness of Dot. Faal’s killing. He said Dot Faal was on his feet when he was about to be executive at the Fajara Barracks while previous testimonies revealed that Dot. Faal could not walk, due to the beatings he received at Mile II prison. Hearings continue tomorrow at 10 am.

You can feel he was trying to be a little bit nervous about the situation. He was stressing out a bit, so the goal will do him a lot of good,” said Fabregas after the match at Stamford Bridge.“I think this happens to all the strikers, they want to score goals. That’s their nature.

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy believes Manchester United might have unlocked Juan Mata’s best position after his performance during the club’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea.The Spaniard lined up behind striker, Romelu Lukaku in the number ten role for United, with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford on the wings.While Martial stole the show with two well-taken goals, one assisted by Rashford, it was Mata who impressed the pundits on BBC’s Match of the Day.The former Chelsea midfielder was impressive against the Blues, and was tidy in possession. His presence in the team also allowed Paul Pogba drop into a more defensive role.Speaking on Match of the Day, Murphy and fellow pundit Alan Shearer heaped praises on Mata, saying he did the hard work that allowed United’s wingers to express themselves.“He’s only started one of the last seven which when you think of the talent he’s got is amazing,” Murphy said, according to Manchester Evening News.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“He’s got a coolness, a calmness that no other United player showed in the first half. In the second half his end product became important.”“In that number ten role, he finds those pockets. When he plays wide he gets isolated and he does lack a little bit of pace.”“But today he got back and did his role defensively which he’s been accused of not doing in the past. It’s the awareness of those around him.”“When you’ve got runners like Martial and Rashford you need a player like Mata.”“When he got taken off they lost composure in the game. When he leaves the pitch it says it all because you’ve not got just United supporters applauding him but all the Chelsea fans too.”
