AME Church Donates US$3,000 to Sierra Leone Mudslide Victims

first_imgThe Eliza Turner African Methodist Episcopal Church on Camp Johnson Road, over the weekend donated the amount of US$3,000 to the Sierra Leone Embassy in Monrovia for survivors of the recent environmental catastrophe in Freetown that left about 500 residents dead.Alvin E. Attah, head Pastor of the church, said the gesture is aimed at identifying with the people of neighboring Sierra Leone, where there are many AME Churches that are part of the 14th Episcopal District in seven West African countries.Presenting the money formally at the Sierra Leone Embassy, Mr. Attah said the 14th Episcopal District had already identified with the AME Church in Sierra Leone, so Eliza Turner AME Church in Monrovia decided to go a step further, noting that victims of the incident include people from other denominations and religions so this is the church’s own way of identifying with the Government of Sierra Leone “to let them know that when they are crying, we are also crying, when they are in need, we are also in need.”Rev. Attah noted that the mission of the Church is not only to minister to the spiritual needs of people, but also to seen human kind as one big family therefore, we have come with the love of Jesus to our brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers”, he said.In the early hours of Monday, August 14, 2017, Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone located in the 14th Episcopal District where E. Earl McCloud, Jr. presides as Bishop, was hit by heavy rain, followed by an unprecedented mudslides and massive flooding.The area has suffered incredible devastation. To-date, more than four hundred (400) people have lost their lives, and over the next five (5) years it is anticipated that more bodies will wash up on the Atlantic shore from this human tragedy. Meanwhile, Head Chancery at the Sierra Leone Embassy here, Dr. Roseline I. Turay, thanked the church for coming to the aid of the people of Sierra Leone, assuring that the money will be forwarded to the Government of Sierra Leone through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Infection kills student, closes 21 schools

first_imgBEDFORD, Va. – A high school student who was hospitalized for more than a week with an antibiotic-resistant staph infection has died. After a student protest, officials shut down 21 schools for cleaning to keep the illness from spreading. Ashton Bonds, 17, a senior at Staunton River High School, died Monday after being diagnosed with MRSA or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, his mother said. “I want people to know how sick it made my son,” Veronica Bonds said. Staph infections, including the serious MRSA strain, have spread through schools nationwide in recent weeks, according to health and education officials. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.MRSA is a strain of staph bacteria that does not respond to penicillin and related antibiotics but can be treated with other drugs. The infection can be spread by skin-to-skin contact or sharing an item used by an infected person, particularly one with an open wound. Staunton River students organized a protest overnight Monday using text messages and social networking sites. They took Bedford County Schools Superintendent James Blevins on a tour of the school Tuesday to show him how unclean it is – particularly the locker rooms. Blevins said at a news conference Tuesday that the schools will be closed today for cleaning. Staunton River will be cleaned by a commercial cleaning company, and the county’s other schools will be cleaned by janitorial staff members. Many of the infections are being spread in gyms and locker rooms, where athletes – perhaps suffering from cuts or abrasions – share sports equipment. Ashton Bonds played football last year but was not playing this season. He went to Bedford Memorial Hospital on Oct. 4 after complaining of pain in his side, his mother said. He was sent home after doctors ruled out appendicitis, but was readmitted three days later and taken to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. Last week doctors diagnosed him with a MRSA infection that had spread to his kidneys, liver, lungs and the muscles around his heart. Early Thursday morning, the teen had to be sedated and put on a ventilator. He was about to undergo surgery to drain the infection from his lungs when doctors detected a blood clot near his heart. Bonds said the clot was inoperable.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE: LESSONS LEARNED IN HELL

first_imgBY Emmet Rushe: On Saturday past, Team Rushe Fitness, set off again on another adventure.This time around, Sligo was our destination and “Hell and Back” was our challenge.When we booked this in February everyone was up for the challenge, having completed the 5km Ultimate Survivor in Letterkenny back in October. However, as the weeks rolled in and the event got closer doubt started to creep in to some of our members.Some had doubts about their fitness; others had doubts about their weight, some about whether they should have signed up at all.The thing is, I had no doubt that each member would not only make it through, but surprise themselves in the process.In the week leading up to the event, the organisers began to put up pictures of the new and improved obstacles on Facebook. They were boasting that it would be the toughest course that Hell and Back has ever run.This did nothing to alleviate the fears and doubts of the already worried members.But Saturday came and our 30 person strong crew made our way to Sligo and to the event.Each member had to get over a 5 foot wall to get to the start line.  It was a preview of things to come.After a warm up, the adrenaline was pumping and we set off. Any worries of getting dirty or wet were knocked out of you by the 1st obstacle, which was a pool of -53 degrees ice water.Once this one was out of the way, you really didn’t care about the mud that was to come.As a team, our members really shone.They helped each other through each and every obstacle and stuck to the Hell and Back mantra that ‘No-one gets left behind’. They helped others out of rivers, drains, trenches and over obstacles.Once our members were through the obstacles, some of them even stayed on and continued to help other individuals and teams.As we reached the half way point, we had a particularly horrible obstacle of carrying a log up and down a hill for the best part of a kilometre.We were met with two members of our team, one of who was panicking about her fitness in the weeks leading up to the event, and they were already around the obstacle and moving onto the next.So much for not being fit enough.As with any group of people, the differing fitness levels eventually meant that the group broke into two smaller groups.But when the leading group came to one of the last obstacles in the last km of the event, they waited for the rest of the group to arrive, so they could go over the finish line as a team.As the group was waiting, some of them spent 30 mins helping people over the 10 foot wall near the end of the event, and eventually made it over the finish line as a team.So what are the lessons learned from Hell and Back?Whenever people get into tough situations, their true natures shine through and I’m happy to say that my members made me proud.Don’t ever let fear and doubts cloud your mind, you are capable of a hell of a lot more than you might ever think you are.It doesn’t matter if you are old, overweight, not fit enough, have never tried it before, have doubts about if you are able for it; it simply doesn’t matter.And while we did indeed go to Hell and Back on Saturday, the feelings of self-pride and accomplishment that the Rushe Fitness crew felt that evening were pretty Heavenly!With someone to push you in the right direction and the right team beside you, anything is possible. #TeamRushefitness#TrainSmartEMMET RUSHE: LESSONS LEARNED IN HELL was last modified: May 18th, 2015 by John2Share 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

Straight to the top of their class

first_imgWHITTIER – In unusual moves, freshmen trustees have leap-frogged over more experienced colleagues to take leading posts on two local school boards. In both instances, newly elected majorities on the Los Nietos School District and the Rio Hondo Community College District governing boards voted in freshmen for the posts of vice president and clerk – jobs that normally are filled by rotation. At the Los Nietos district, two-year school board member Nicholas Aquino, who was in line to be elected vice president job, was bypassed for the position. Instead, newcomers Diana Villalba and Grisel Vasquez joined with member Oscar Payan to elect Villalba as vice president and Vasquez as clerk. The three also joined to elect Payan as school board president. Payan said he voted for the board members he felt would do the best jobs as president and clerk. “You have to decide who to choose, and you choose the people you believe will do the best job,” said Payan. At the Rio Hondo district, 14-year Rio Hondo board veteran Maria Elena Martinez, who served as vice president last year and was in line for the presidency, was out-voted when newly elected trustees Angela Acosta-Salazar and Garry Couso-Vasquez joined with trustee Gary Mendez. The three board members then elected Mendez as president, Acosta-Salazar as vice president and Couso-Vasquez as clerk. Mendez said the moves were not unusual. “It’ll blow over,” he said. “We’re all humans. We have feelings and opinions and different dispositions. Four years ago, \ came on board and we reorganized and one or two people were upset, but we got over it.” Like Acosta-Salazar and Couso-Vasquez, neither Villalba nor Vasquez have previous experience on a school governing board. Matt Spies, business services coordinator at the Los Angeles County Office of Education, said internal school board elections are “not something set in law.” “These districts can set their own policies on how officers are chosen,” he added. “There is usually a pecking order, for lack of a better term, for those who have been on the board for a while, who are seasoned and experienced. But there’s nothing prohibiting this.” tracy.garcia@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3051 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
