Mineke Foundation Graduates 75 Today

first_imgTo celebrate its accreditation as an official none-governmental organization, Mineke Foundation has announced the holding of graduation for 75 students from its soap making and pastry management classes.The graduation ceremony, according to Tonia Dabwe, the founder of the school, coincided with the official launch of the foundation, which is scheduled to take place today, Tuesday.Madam Dabwe is in the country with a high-powered seven person delegation from Holland for the launching ceremony. She described the prospective graduates as “people with significant roles to play in the society, because it will be through their skills, that the country will experience economic and social development since they will be graduating with lifetime skills such as soap making and pastry management.Most of the prospective graduates are women, except for the few men who completed the three months soap-making course. Some of the female students completed the soap-making course, but a majority of them took the pastry production course which lasted for 10 months. “Some of the students were also required to complete business courses as “extracurricular activities,” because if a student understands how to make pastry or quality soap, that does not mean they have good business management skills,” Mineke’s founder said. She said the business courses are designed to help the students develop their business management skills. “The great news is that our entire population of students passed the theoretical and practical examinations set up to see if they actually understood the concepts of the lessons that were taught,” Madam Dabwe said. Speaking about today’s launch of the foundation, Madam Dabwe said since the foundation operates as a legally established entity, its scope of operations will have to be expanded very soon beyond the Gardnersville Community to other areas in Montsserado County despite the financial challenges.“The exciting news about this launch is that we are now becoming an official organization since we started work in Liberia more than three years ago,” she told reporters in a joyous mood.It may be recalled that in March this year, the foundation graduated 25 people both in soap making and pastry production.The event today is expected to be attended by government representatives, national and international NGO representatives, members of the diplomatic corps, staff and trainees as well as friends and well wishers of Mineke Foundation. The Foundation was established in Holland in 2009 with a focus on social and economic development of Dabwe Town, Liberia. It undertakes projects such as establishing youth clubs, vocational and entrepreneurial training for youth and the current soap making and pastry programs.“We think the issue of women’s empowerment in Liberia is every one’s business because on the average level in Liberia women carry the hardest burden to take care of the families,” Madam Dabwe said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man who killed wife 21 years ago to face murder charge

first_img– admits to murdering woman because of “infidelity”A Hururu Mission, Region One resident who confessed to killing his wife 21 years ago, after accusing her of being unfaithful to him, will be arraigned in court in the new week.Philbert Thomas, also called “Gilbert” ThomasIn September, 1998, the now 48-year-old Philbert Thomas, also called “Gilbert Thomas,” was at a Fun Day activity in Kwebanna village, Region One (Barima-Waini) when he stabbed his reputed wife, Viola Thomas, to death.A senior Police officer, who at the time of the murder was stationed in Region One, has said that stabbing incident was witnessed by more than 100 persons. That Police officer explained that the suspect had fled the scene moments after committing the act, and had since not been seen or heard from.Guyana Times understands that Philbert and the late Viola Thomas had been involved in a relationship for years prior to the stabbing incident, and she had mothered his children.After the murder was committed in 1998, the file was sent to the then Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice, and investigators were told to arrest and charge Thomas for murder, but he could not be located.However, Thomas was last month charged for felonious wounding committed on his ex-lover Dally Gobin and her friend Leaymond Smith. It was reported that, on the day in question, the victims were imbibing at Gobin’s house when the suspect showed up without being invited. This resulted in a heated argument among them. The argument degenerated into a scuffle, and the suspect allegedly whipped out a knife and dealt Gobin a stab. He then turned his attention to Smith, and stabbed him once before fleeing the scene.The victims were taken to the Kwakwani Hospital, where they were treated and referred to the Linden Hospital Complex. There they were admitted, and subsequently discharged.Thomas was arrested while hiding at a camp in the Hururu Backlands, and was subsequently charged.It was after this story had been published in the media that persons who had witnessed him murdering his wife contacted the Police.Commander of “F” Division (Interior locations), Kevin Adonis, told this publication that someone contacted ranks of his division with information that Thomas has been wanted by the Police some 21 years ago for murdering his reputed wife, but was never arrested or charged for the incident.According to the Police Commander, an investigation was immediately launched into the matter, and Thomas was subsequently interrogated about the murder. Thomas has since admitted to the Police that he had murdered Viola because she had been “unfaithful” to him.last_img read more

BC will hold a referendum on the HST next year

first_imgThe Legislative Committee on initiatives has decided to send the HST to a non-binding referendum next September. All four New Democrats MP’s on the committee said they wanted the petition to go directly to the legislature for a vote. However, all five Liberals including Peace River North MLA, Pat Pimm, wanted the petition to go to a referendum September 24th, 2011. Premier Gordon Campbell says his government will abide by the results of the referendum.[asset|aid=3136|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=395ab9e063a3929705cf002568871f6c-Gordo – HST Ref_1_Pub.mp3] – Advertisement -Whatever question goes to the voters, it will have to be approved by 50 per-cent of all registered voters and by 50 per-cent of all registered voters in two-thirds of BC’s 85 ridings. Elections BC says holding a provincial referendum on the HST will cost $30 million. The other option is to do the referendum by a mail-in ballot which would cost only $12 million.

Anti-HST leader Bill Vander Zalm stormed out of the meeting and told reporters that he’s furious that the Liberals are going to referendum instead of just voting in the legislature and bringing the issue to a close sooner than later. last_img read more

Suspect in killings tied to drug case

first_imgA law enforcement source said Bacon had requested a police escort after an altercation with Brown just days before police think she died. Lancaster sheriff’s deputies discovered the bodies after Maurice Dawkins, Crystal Dawkins’ father, traveled to the Antelope Valley from Columbia and implored them to force their way into the home. On a previous visit, sheriff’s deputies had ignored Dawkins’ pleas to enter the home. (661) 267-7802160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LANCASTER – A man arrested in the grisly shooting deaths of two women in Lancaster is also a central figure in an Arizona drug-dealing case, prosecutors said Wednesday. Christopher Anthony Brown, 39, is in Arizona awaiting extradition on two counts of murder in the deaths of Christine Bacon, his 41-year-old ex-girlfriend, and her daughter, Crystal Dawkins, 18. He was arrested Jan.19. He will be tried on the Arizona drug charges first, then come to Los Angeles County for trial on the murder charges, which could bring the death penalty. He was involved in transporting 200 pounds of marijuana with a street value of about $100,000, Pima (Ariz.) County Assistant District Attorney Mark Diebolt said. Los Angeles County Assistant District Attorney Maureen Green said she expects full cooperation from Arizona prosecutors in the extradition process, noting that the two states have historically had a good working relationship. “I have great faith in the system,” Green said. “I believe everyone (in this case) will have their due process, including the defendant.” Los Angeles County sheriff’s homicide Detective Bill Marsh said the Arizona case and extradition process will allow local investigators to develop a stronger case, and could ultimately benefit prosecutors. “They’re still handling their business in Arizona, which is just fine with us,” Marsh said. “His exposure in (that case) is significant enough to where he could potentially face substantial (prison) time, but that really doesn’t present any problems for us.” The bodies of the two women were found at Bacon’s Price Lane home Dec.18, about four weeks after the killings are thought to have occurred, homicide investigators said. Crystal Dawkins was visiting her estranged mother in Lancaster from Columbia, S.C., for Thanksgiving. last_img read more

Governor puts transportation bond on ballot

But what the Legislature ultimately passed – and what the governor signed on Tuesday – was nearly twice as large as Perata’s original proposal. The governor, who is using the bond to try to convince voters he can work productively with the Democrat-dominated Legislature, heaped praise on legislators for passing the bond and “doing what’s best for California.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
