We were in an antagonistic way to what Atlético de Madrid had been playing for two years and were about to descend … we were surprised in the summer but look later. Playing with two tanks like Penev and I. We came two years ago from playing for Pizjuán in the last game and we were saved, and another against Rayo Vallecano in the last two seasons. For me he will always be someone special, I am not writing a biography but if one of the chapters would be for him. He took things from me that I didn’t even know he had, he took away our fears and complexes.

MYS to Suspend Handball

Posted On Jan 14 2020 by

first_imgThe Ministry of Youth and Sports has announced that it’s considering suspending the Liberia National Handball Association indefinitely for disrespect and insubordination.Deputy Sports Minister Henry B. Yonton, Jr. said the Sport Department of the Ministry has recommended the indefinite suspension of handball to Minister Lenn Eugene Nagbe.Minister Yonton said the recommendation to indefinitely suspend financial support to handball is owing to the lack of respect and defiance for the holding of the elective congress after being mandated by the Ministry to abort it upon receipt of a letter of complaint from aggrieved handball stakeholders, headed by Hadji Saysay and Jonathan Kollie.“Besides ignoring our mandate, we also learned that the election was conducted by one of the stakeholders owing to the nonattendance of the Chairman of Ad hoc Election Commission, Amos Korvah, who is also the president of the Liberia National Table Tennis Association,” Minister Yonton said.“We wanted the election to be aborted to look into issues raised by the aggrieved stakeholders about credited voters – so the recommendation for the indefinite suspension has been written,” he said.Meanwhile, when our reporter quizzed the founding and re-elected president of Handball, J. Mason Saweler, in a telephone interview, he said the Deputy Minister does not have any fact to recommend his suspension.It may be recalled that the handball association hosted its first congress on October 30-31 at the Harbel Field House in Harbel City, Margibi County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


To The Rescue Couple jilted by wedding spot will have their day at RB library

Posted On Jan 3 2020 by
first_imgBy Andrea Woodhouse STAFF WRITER Rhonda Castillo’s story has all the makings of a modern fairy tale: true love, an unscrupulous villain, a fairy godmother and, if all goes well tonight, a happy ending. Wearing a sleek ivory-colored gown with delicate beading, the Redondo Beach resident will marry her fiance on the beach at sunset, and then head off to a candlelit reception at the city’s nearby historic library in Veterans Park – and it’s all free of charge. “I feel like I’m Cinderella right now, Castillo said. Her dreams will come true tonight, but the path to Castillo’s happily-ever-after has been tear-streaked, tumultuous and trying as the 46-year-old saw the elaborate wedding she’d spent a year planning crumble last week. Castillo was one of nearly 90 brides who’d booked their nuptials at Inglewood’s Ivy House Gardens, a one-stop wedding shop with more than 60 years of experience in marrying South Bay couples, before the facility abruptly closed Sept. 11 with no explanations or refunds. Out $16,000 and a wedding location less than two weeks before the big day, Castillo had resigned herself to a backyard barbecue reception and abbreviated guest list. Enter Kathy Villa, manager of Spectrum Catering at the Redondo Beach historic library, an oceanfront spot coveted by South Bay brides. She read about Castillo’s plight in the Daily Breeze, and felt terrible. “For brides, planning a wedding can be overwhelming,” Villa said. “And for someone to walk off with their money – it just boggles my little brain.” So, Villa and Spectrum Catering offered up their popular location and catering services free of charge, instantly turning Villa into Castillo’s fairy godmother. “I didn’t expect that at all,” Castillo said. “I thought maybe she’d donate some food to my backyard reception. Kathy said, `No, we’re going to give you your wedding.’ I started crying.” In true fairy-tale fashion, the airy 1930-built building, still knee-deep in a peak wedding season, uncharacteristically happened to be available on the most popular day of the week to get hitched. And an experienced fairy godmother can work quickly: “Throwing a wedding together in a few days is not a big deal,” Villa said. “I have Sunday booked this weekend, but for some reason Saturday didn’t book. It’s weird.” So Castillo and fiance Joe Tuivai, 36, will host 155 guests at their fantasy wedding reception after all – replete with crisp brocade linens and a chicken and vegetable buffet at the historic library that can cost up to $17,000. Both married once before, the pair met in August 2005, when Tuivai performed concrete work on Castillo’s Redondo Beach home. They started dating a few months later, and were engaged about a year ago. “We’ve been tested quite a bit already,” Castillo said. “We’ve already had quite a journey just getting here.” But despite a free fantasy fete that Castillo believed would be better than anything the Ivy House could ever throw, her battle against the Inglewood facility continues. She has not seen a penny back of the $16,000 she deposited for her original wedding, and has received no real explanation from the bickering Ivy House owners about why the venue closed. Castillo and about 10 other jilted Ivy House brides are pursuing legal action against the company and have met with a Pasadena attorney to discuss a lawsuit. Meantime, Castillo is working on the last-minute details of her wedding. She knows how she’ll coif her hair, and a Manhattan Beach beauty salon has offered Castillo a free makeover for the big day, and a gratis night’s stay at a local hotel. But, despite her good fortune, Castillo can’t help but feel a little sad. “It’s almost like I feel guilty, really,” she said. “I am happy and I’m so grateful – no words can ever express how I feel. But a little bit of me feels bad because of the other brides. I wish we could all have that.” Weather reports have forecast rain today, but after a nightmare week, the soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Joe Tuivai aren’t that worried. “We’ll just get wet,” Tuivai said. Added his bride: “Nothing can ruin this day now.” And they lived happily ever after. The End. andrea.woodhouse@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img

A delighted Maria told Donegal Daily, “I just can’t believe it, I only started the job on Monday and didn’t expect my first pay cheque until next month.“But, I’m getting paid after just three days work, and I’m getting an amount I’d have to work for 25 years to get, she laughed.Maria also admitted that if she hadn’t the correct €2 change to enter, she probably wouldn’t have bothered, as she never regularly does the lotto or scratch card quick picks.“When they asked me did I want to enter, I said yeah sure why not, I never in my wildest dreams expected to win it, and if I didn’t have the €2 on me, I probably wouldn’t have done it, as I don’t regularly do the lotto at all. “Thank god I did it though, I just can’t believe it, I’m struggling to take it all in. It’s a life changing amount of money.Cockhill Celtic star James Bradley was also part of the syndicate and he was absolutely over the moon.He told Donegal Daily, “Let’s hope it’s a treble for Donegal now, the lotto, and a double for the Minors and Seniors on Sunday.“It’s just an unbelievable feeling, Donal O’Brien will probably be looking for me to reinvest in our squad for next season!!The thirteen lucky lotto winners were James Bradley, Liam Bradley, Linda McKinley, Anna McKinney, Patricia Quigley, Marion McCauley, Helen Doherty, Maria Doherty, Anne-Marie Jordan, Amanda McFadden, Marie McLaughlin, Kelly McMonagle and Claire McElhinney.

OWNER OF THE ‘BOG HOTEL’ AGREES TO GIVE BACK ROLLS ROYCE AFTER COURT DISPUTE

Posted On Dec 24 2019 by

first_imgA Donegal pensioner, famous for running a shebeen bar with his Polish girlfriend, has appeared in court in a battle over a Roll Royce car.Patsy Brogan appears in court after the dispute over the Rolls Royce car was settled yesterday. Pic by Northwest Newspix.Patsy Brogan, 78, appeared at Glenties District Court yesterday after settling an action with a woman over the disputed car. Brogan, who has had several long-running prosecutions over the Bog Hotel, near Frosses, is to be paid €1,450.The court heard that Bernadette Diver had agreed to pay him back money he gave her for a run-down 1978 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit.The Irish Independent report the car had belonged to her late husband Hugh Diver, who died in a tree-cutting accident in Ardara, in 2010.Mr Diver was one of three men arrested and released without charge after a bomb was found at a telecoms mast in Ardara in November 1996. He later gave evidence to the Morris Tribunal, which was investigating allegations of corruption in Donegal.Mr Brogan said Mr Diver had been a regular at the Bog Hotel.The dispute with Mrs Diver arose last February, when Mr Brogan claimed she had offered to sell him the car as she needed the money. He said he gave €1,500 to Mrs Diver and he was given the keys and the car’s registration documents.However, when he hired a specialist Rolls Royce mechanic to check the car, Mr Brogan claimed Mrs Diver, of Meentanadea, Ardara, refused to allow the engineer to examine itHe complained to gardaí but when no criminal inquiry was launched, he took the civil case to the local district court.Mrs Diver had originally disputed the claims but at Glenties District Court her solicitor Moya O’Donnell told Judge Paul Kelly that she agreed to return €1,450 to Mr Brogan.The pensioner, who was representing himself, had the decision explained to him by the judge. He adjourned the case to allow payment to be returned. Mr Brogan agreed he would hand back the keys to the Rolls Royce and the registration documents on receipt of the money.Mr Brogan told the Irish Independent after the case: “I just want to get on with my life now.“Hugh (Diver) was a regular at the Bog Hotel and a good friend. I agreed to buy the Rolls Royce.“I never really wanted the car; I thought it might look good parked up outside the hotel and that’s what I was thinking,” he said.In 2011, Mr Brogan was convicted under the 1924 Intoxicating Liquor Act at Donegal District Court and fined €50 for keeping alcohol for sale.He said he and his girlfriend, Daria Weiske (35), were still “in love” adding: “She works during the week in Dublin but we still get to spend weekends together.”Local people say there has been no activity at the Bog Hotel for several months. It’s understood garda checks on the premises in recent times have not found anyone other than Mr Brogan and his girlfriend there.OWNER OF THE ‘BOG HOTEL’ AGREES TO GIVE BACK ROLLS ROYCE AFTER COURT DISPUTE was last modified: February 26th, 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) Tags:Bog HotelcourtdonegalGardaiHugh DiverPatsy BroganROLLS ROYCElast_img read more


New greenways path for Blue Banks gets green light

Posted On Dec 22 2019 by

first_imgDonegal TD Joe McHugh has secured formal commitment from transport chiefs for the extension of a new cycleway and footpath along the €20million Blue Banks road project.Mr McHugh revealed the chief executive of Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) Michael Nolan wrote to him to confirm it would fund a new stretch of dedicated greenway from Coolboy to Illistrin.“Extending this route is going to be a massive asset for tourism and leisure in Co Donegal,” the Fine Gael minister said. “In the finish up, when this €20million Blue Banks to Kilmacrennan road project is completed, with an uninterrupted greenway, we will have a quality and safe path for cyclists and walkers almost 6km long. But we are setting our sights much higher.“I see this as the start of connecting Derry City to Inishowen and then to Letterkenny and on to Glenveagh National Park and the Gaeltacht islands – all with a dedicated route for cyclists, walkers and runners.“We are thinking big here. The ultimate goal is to link all these cycleway projects and create one of the most spectacular greenways in western Europe.“Huge efforts have already been made on greenways on the old railway line including by community groups from Termon and Burtonport. I want to commend them all.” Discussions are to take place between Donegal County Council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland on finalising design and funding for the new, extended cycle path on the N56.Fine Gael councillor for Letterkenny Jimmy Kavanagh said: “Quality greenways are a key and crucial part of the infrastructure for Letterkenny and the county in the coming years.“They tick a lot of boxes – we have LYIT working on applying for university status, there’s the focus on the Letterkenny-Derry-Strabane city region plan and the growing numbers of students and workers and tourists coming into the area. The demand will be there and the benefits will be huge.”Mr McHugh, Government Chief Whip and Minister for the Irish language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands, revealed last month that he had initiated the process to secure funding to extend the cycle way from Letterkenny to Kilmacrennan.“I have also been told that Donegal County Council is assessing the route from Letterkenny to Illistrin National School to see if a cycleway can be retrofitted,” he said. “I would like to thank Seamus Neely and his team in Donegal County Council and Michael Nolan and his team in Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) for the work and effort they have put into these projects.“It’s just one in the long line of big investments in roads infrastructure in Donegal and the combined focus on tourism, leisure and fitness.“When it comes to improving roads and road facilities in Donegal, this Government is thinking smart and delivering big.“One we were a county playing catch-up but with the influence I have exerted at cabinet level real and important changes are being made. The diggers are on the ground, the construction workers are laying the roads and the people are seeing and feeling the difference.” Mr McHugh also said he will be bringing in officials from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht in the next few weeks to see how we can continue to build on cycle way connectivity to Glenveagh National Park.New greenways path for Blue Banks gets green light was last modified: May 11th, 2018 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)Tags:Blue BanksdonegalgreenwayJoe McHughkilmacrennanlast_img read more
