President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said it: the Lone Star’s success over Guinea Bissau last week “shows that things can happen once you have committed people undertaking a task.”For too long our National Squad has been the underdog in African football. Not that it could not play the game, but it lacked scorers and scoring power. And so, though our defenses have been strong, our weakness in scoring exposed us to the slightest chance the opponents seized; and lo, we lost.Alas, the commitment of all the stakeholders in this challenging feat has paid off handsomely. This newspaper, the Daily Observer, has long argued that our Lone Star team can succeed with all hands on deck, not just the Liberian Football Association (LFA). In an Editorial not too long ago we demanded that the Ministry of Youth and Sports take charge of sports in Liberia as it ought to, for one simple reason: our teams, be they football, basketball, tennis, swimming or track and field, wherever they go in the international arena, represent not just their individual associations, but the Republic ofLiberia. So who should be in the forefront leading, empowering, financing, encouraging and cheering? Surely not just the individual associations, but the government itself, led by its Ministry of Youth and Sports.We think it was a mark of shortsightedness that Mr. Bility decided, after he was elected LFA President, that football was the exclusive preserve of the LFA. Well, the others, including the Ministry, sat back and said, “Give the bulldog his bunch of palm nuts. He will regret in the end.” Can a bulldog eat a bunch of palm nuts? No, he will end up only with a bloody mouth and nose.So has the Lone Star ended experiencing one defeat after another? Yes, it was following that last defeat, when Togo crushed the Lone Star 2-1 that we published that final Editorial pleading with the Ministry of Youth and Sports to take charge of football that Minister Eugene Nagbe listened and got busy.We won the very next match, dealing Tunisia, an African football powerhouse, a stunning 1-0 defeat!Then came Guinea Bissau, which courageously, on our own turf at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium, forced us to a one-all draw.But when the Lone Star showed up in Bissau for the rematch, we beat them 3-1!En route to the ATS for the victory celebration last Friday, the Lone Star was graciously invited by the President to her Foreign Ministry office, where she praised them for their prowess and triumphant performance. She touched all the buttons, commending all those involved for what she called their “commitment.” The real heroes, she declared, were the Lone Star Squad, including many who had traveled thousands of miles from their engagement with international teams, to join their brothers in the battle with Guinea Bissau; and the Squad’s brilliant and dynamic Coach, James Salinsa Debbah.Next on Ellen’s list of commendation was the LFA and its President, Musa Bility; and last, but by no means least, Minister Eugene Nagbe and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.President Sirleaf praised them all for their “commitment” through which, she said, great things can happen.Oh Liberia! Why can’t we all always be committed to the cause of our country? If we could all put our dear country first before ourselves, Liberia would be far, far ahead.Should we maintain this spirit of commitment, we would be able to meet every foe, including the Ivorian Elephants, and all others, as our National Anthem author Daniel B. Warner, proclaimed: “with valor unpretending.”“Long live Liberia, Happy land, a home of glorious liberty by God’s command!“A home of glorious liberty by God’s command!” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Reports have claimed 21-year-old could be recalled by Chelsea and then loaned out to a Premier League club, with Wolves particuarly interested in signing the England international.Given Abraham has scored 16 goals for Villa this season, Smith insists the Blues are happy with the striker’s progress.”He’s enjoying himself as a person and developing as a player,” said Smith. “All three parties (Abraham, Chelsea and Villa) seem very happy with what’s going on.”There will always be speculation but I’ll be amazed if he, Chelsea or ourselves would want to upset that.”

From 1991-1994, Galloway put up 2,085 total yards from scrimmage and scored 23 touchdowns, per sports-reference.com.

Analysts continued to speculate in overnight reports that Husky will have to raise its bid to win over MEG’s management.They also found it doubtful that an alternate bidder will emerge for MEG given that its only product, oilsands bitumen, is facing severely discounted prices as new oilsands production from northern Alberta makes worse an export pipeline bottleneck.In an email, Husky spokesman Mel Duvall says his company believes its offer is attractive, adding it intends to review MEG’s directors’ circular rejecting the deal in more detail before providing further comment.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) CALGARY, A.B. – MEG Energy Corp. shares rose, fell and rose again Thursday morning after it formally rejected a hostile takeover offer from oilsands rival Husky Energy Inc.The target company said after markets closed Wednesday that the Husky offer is opportunistic and undervalues its assets and prospects, adding it intends to conduct a formal process that could identify a white knight to make a better offer.MEG shares rose by as much as 21 cents to $11 in morning trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange before falling back to near Wednesday’s close of $10.79 and then rising again to $10.85.
New Delhi: More than 900 artists, including Pandit Jasraj, Vivek Oberoi and Rita Ganguli, Wednesday issued a statement asking people to vote for the BJP and said the country needs a “Majboot Sarkar” not a “Majboor Sarkar”. The artists appealed to the people to cast their vote without any pressure and prejudice. “It is our firm conviction that the continuance of government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the need of the hour. Besides, when challenges like terrorism are before all of us, we need a ‘Majboot Sarkar’ not a ‘Majboor Sarkar’ and hence we need the present government to continue,” it said. Among those who have issued the joint statement are Shankar Mahadevan, Triloki Nath Mishra, Koena Mitra, Anuradha Paudwal and Hans Raj Hans. The joint statement said that during the last five years, India has seen a government which delivered “corruption-free good governance and development oriented administration”. The joint statement comes a week after more than 600 theatre personalities, including Amol Palekar, Naseeruddin Shah, Girish Karnad and Usha Ganguli, had signed a letter asking people to “vote BJP and its allies” out of power, arguing that the idea of India and its constitution are under threat. The letter, which was issued Thursday evening in 12 languages on the Artist Unite India website, said the upcoming Lok Sabha elections are the “most critical in the history” of the country.
