Victoria’s Passion: Playing it fair

first_imgVictoria Kabba, 18, loves soccer and makes her contribution to develop it as a referee, she told the Daily Observer in an interview last Saturday, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium. And she is among the youngest female soccer referees of the Liberia Referees Association, (LIFRA).“I began two years ago,” Kabba said. “I visited the Antoinette Tubman Stadium to participate in a track and field event. And at the time, a number of referees were also engaged in their early morning exercises.”She said a lady she named as Sister Christmas, “encouraged me when she saw that I was highly impressed with what the referees were doing.” Thereafter, he sought enquiries at the LFA and registered and eventually began to get assistance from the Liberia Referees Association.“LIFRA officials told me that I can become a good referee and help of officiate female games,” Ms. Kakka told the Daily Observer.A 9th grade student of the Prince Y. Johnson Junior High School, on GSA Road in Paynvesville, Ms. Kabba has never wavered in her desire to become a referee and she finds encouragement when she serves as a lineswoman to officiate a match.“I find excitement as an authority on the field when I perform as a lineswoman in a game at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium,” she said.She admitted there have been challenges when signals in games did not go well with players, and some have issued insults at her.“At LIFRA training I’m told such would happen and so when it happens I learn from it,” she said.Meanwhile, she appealed to female footballers to understand that when a game is in progress, referees and linesmen (women) work hard to apply the laws of the game with fairness. Though Ms. Victoria Kabba (MaaVic) did not rule out human error, she said referees are honest people trying to do a job that has a great deal of emotion.On her growth, she expressed appreciation to LIFRA officials and members for their encouragement, “and also supporting me to be what I want to be.”Her guardian, Mr. Sayma S. Sayon, she said has supported her interest. “She helps me with transportation and LIFRA’s officials also help me and I thank them very much.”Her role model, she said is referee Francis Sannoh. “I watch him when he is training and exercising and I model my training after him,” she said. There are more than 15 females in the Liberia Referees Association nationwide who handle the female league of the Liberia Football Association. With the LFA’s focus on providing additional support to female soccer, female referees will have the chance to practice their trade to enjoy the world’s number one game: soccer.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

None of it illegal

first_imgRe “Federal appellate panel a judicial joke” (Their Opinions, April 11): As general counsel for the L.A. Police Protective League, Hank Hernandez should applaud, not ridicule the presiding judge (Fisher v. City of San Jose) for overturning an erroneous jury verdict and the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for upholding that ruling. Buying two 12-packs of beer and drinking them at home (even if it gets you intoxicated) is not illegal. Cleaning your legally owned guns at home is not illegal. Being confronted by a swarm of armed peace officers demanding unlawful orders (no warrant) under color of authority is protected under the U.S. Constitution, despite Hernandez’s opinion. On rare occasions, the 9th Circuit gets it right. – William E. Rush Woodland Hills Where’s their apology? Re “Duke lacrosse players innocent of all charges” (April 12): Don’t you think that the activists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton should now issue an apology to these men? If I remember right, they were on air expressing their anger and lies on this incident, which turned out to be false. I think at the very least they should offer apologies. – Mark Gilbert Palmdale The Irish example Re “Paper or plastic or what else for L.A.?” (April 11): When I was visiting Ireland a few years ago, I was surprised when I bought a few groceries, and they charged 10 cents for each plastic bag used to carry them home. When I asked the reason, the checker said no one throws them away now so the countryside stays plastic-free. If there is one flying around, it is soon picked up and turned in – 10 bags, one dollar. This may be a simple solution to landfills with plastic and ugly trash lying around. – Irma Ajhar Chatsworth One with handles Re “Paper or plastic or what else for L.A.?” (April 11): My only objection to paper bags only at the grocery store is that most of the stores only have paper bags without handles. I live in a condo and I have to carry my groceries up to my condo and that is hard to do with a bag that has no handles. If they do away with the plastic bags, could they require the grocery stores to provide paper bags with handles? – Pat Meiner Canoga Park Be offended Let us hope that Don Imus’ vile use of what has become everyday language opens up discourse among all communities that characterizations like this are unacceptable. It takes public outcry to make changes to the norm. We cannot be biased and say the same phraseology and worse when used by one segment of the population is acceptable and glorified in music, videos, film and TV with awards ceremonies, but begets beheadings when another segment of the population uses the same words. No matter what your religion, ethnicity or orientation, be offended and by all means keep it out of your own vocabulary. – Doug McNeely Reseda Bicyclists The increased number of bicyclists on Roscoe Boulevard from Van Nuys Boulevard to Reseda Boulevard has frightened drivers as the bike riders all are on the sidewalk whizzing by pedestrians and blowing through pedestrian crosswalks at more than 10 mph. I almost hit a person traveling across the pedestrian crosswalk at more than 15 mph as I was making a right turn. We need bicycle lanes now. We need police to inform all bicyclists that the sidewalk is for pedestrians. – Lorraine Stewart Panorama City Great news! The father of Anna’s baby has been determined.

first_imgA Donegal bride’s father collapsed and died on her wedding day.The tragedy struck the McCauley family of Ballyshannon on their big day at Kilronan Castle in Keadue, Co Roscommon.For 70-year-old Sean McCauley it was a proud day as he walked his daughter Anne up the aisle—she was the first member of his family to be married. And there were great celebrations at the reception afterwards with dancing following the wedding reception meal in Kilronan Castle.The Irish Independent reports that Sean’s brother in law, Liam McGowan today recalled the moments of the tragedy as he gave evidence at the inquest of Sean McCauley of Lisahully, Ballyshannon.The band had finished up playing and the disco had started after midnight on May 17 last.“We were having a great day and about 1.20am the disco had started and we went to say goodbye to Sean and the family. Sean was on the dance floor with his wife and as I turned away a man behind me went to shake Sean’s hand”, Mr McGowan said.At that moment Sean collapsed and emergency medical help was summoned.Dr David Swan, who was a wedding guest, attended him as well as two paramedics who arrived following an emergency call for an ambulance.The medics worked on Sean for 30 minutes, but he was unresponsive and he was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.Consultant pathologist, Dr Caroline Brodie carried out a subsequent autopsy and told the inquest that Sean had a previous history of cardiac problems. He had suffered a heart attack.He had a complete blockage of the right coronary artery and Dr Brodie determined the cause of death to be cardiac failure.The inquest jury returned a verdict in accordance with the medical evidence and Roscommon Coroner, Desmond O’Connor expressed his sincere sympathy to the McCauley family.Mr O’Connor described it as “an unfortunate and very sad start to married life” for MrMcCauley’s daughter and he hoped that the family could put it behind them in time and look forward to better days.Mr McGowan said the family wanted to express their thanks to all who had helped on the tragic occasion. They were grateful for all the kindness and he noted in particular the attendance of three members of the staff of Kilronan Castle Hotel at Sean McCauley’s funeral.“Given time, I’m sure the family will get over their great loss”, he said.BRIDE’S FATHER DIED ON DAY OF WEDDING, INQUEST HEARS was last modified: August 6th, 2015 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more
