Police sources confirmed that the man had just left a city bank and was heading to the worksite when he was attacked and robbed.

The Green Coast Farm has taken an unusual step to revolutionize farming in Liberia by introducing organically grown food products.Organic farming is the production of vegetables and livestock using natural sources of nutrients, such as compost, crop residues, and animal manure, instead of using chemical substances.This type of farming is now being practiced by some Liberian farmers with the hope of attracting better market opportunity to improve incomes.The Chief Executive Officer of Green Coast Farm, Bill Tolbert in 2013, upon his return from the United States, he established a farm to grow vegetables using organic fertilizers to attract better market opportunity .He said organic farming is a new farming system in Liberia. “It is about meeting our clients and telling them how differently we grow our crops and its nutritional benefits.”Mr. Tolbert said he began his farm from scratch but it is slowly growing because “our ordering chart indicates an increase of customers who are mostly expatriates interested in our products.” He said his challenges include getting seeds because most of the seeds are imported and their viability rate is low which affects sales. Secondly, some of the imported seeds are not suitable for “our soil to get good yields.”Mr. Tolbert said organic farming is the best way to go for Liberian farmers because it is much cheaper than the conventional farming. It helps farmers to save more money as chemical fertilizers are so expensive. “When Liberian farmers adopt organic farming it will help attract them to the export market,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Highlights stand out. After a long 14-year battle, I’ll never forget the joy I experienced when my Cabinet colleague, Jim Flaherty restored the northern residence allowance to Mackenzie. Or when support across Canada for my private member’s legislation proposing a federal tax credit for adoption expenses compelled the Liberals to incorporate it into our tax system.I’ve always believed that the most important things in life are the relationships we build… I truly have been blessed by my political occupation which has allowed me the opportunity to make good friends all across this great land of ours and around the world.What an unbelievable honour it has been for me to be your Member of Parliament all these years. To have consistently won re-election by healthy majorities each and every campaign. To have known the feeling of having the support of so many truly terrific people. To owe so much to SO MANY, as opposed to “so few” as Winston Churchill’s famous quote put it!And, to borrow from another oft-repeated quote … “thanks for the memories”. “Thanks for the Memories”Bittersweet.- Advertisement -That’s the only word that came to mind this Tuesday evening when I rose to address the Prince George-Peace River Conservative Board of Directors.What words could I use to convey my deepest appreciation for the loyalty, support and friendship I’ve unconditionally received over the past couple of decades from these folks?Bitter… because it’s sad to know the time has come to end a career that has brought me many of my most cherished memories and accomplishments.Sweet… because I’ve always felt that for politicians the time to go is when things are still going well… when you’ve reached the crest of the hill, but before starting down the other side… for me that time is now. And, that is why I chose now to announce that I will not be seeking re-election as your Member of Parliament. I want to ensure that those folks I owe my greatest loyalty and immense gratitude to… those who have always been there to support me through seven federal elections and all the years in between, have sufficient time to select the next Conservative candidate for our great constituency.Advertisement Last week Leah and I had the opportunity to attend “the greatest outdoor show on earth”… the Calgary Stampede. Among the many events we packed into that week was the Prime Minister’s annual Calgary Southwest BBQ at Heritage Park.I remarked that the last time I was at a political event there was 22 years ago next month when I, along with a couple of dozen other freshly nominated Reform party candidates gathered for a rally to show our readiness to contest the upcoming 1988 federal election.One of those was a young man named Stephen Harper. And here he was addressing his riding supporters (and hundreds of others)… as our Prime Minister.22 years. While it seems such a long time most of the time… as is the case in all our lives, actually the time has flown past, marked by so many emotional remembrances… the bad, and the good. And, as is often said… you can’t truly know one without the other.Advertisement MP Report by Jay Hill, M.P.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The hearing, which will be followed by one in the Senate next month, comes in the wake of a high-profile Texas incident in which sheriff’s deputies said they confronted drug runners who were wearing Mexican military uniforms, driving a military-issue Humvee and using military tactics. The Mexican Embassy maintains the suspected smugglers, who were not caught, were members of a drug cartel posing as soldiers, and not actual members of the Mexican military. But Texas officials testifying Tuesday said they think they might be both. “It’s everything,’ said El Paso County Sheriff Leo Samaniego. “It’s the military, it’s cartels buying off military, buying off civilians and dressing as the military.” Bonner, who also said he believes the incursions are the work of actual military officials, added, “It’s immaterial. If Mexico is allowing this to happen, they bear a large part of the responsibility.” Lawmakers and even the Texas deputies had mixed reactions to Bonner’s suggestion that the military be called out. WASHINGTON – The U.S. military should be called out to protect the U.S. border against military-style incursions from Mexico, the head of the Border Patrol union told a congressional homeland security committee Tuesday. TJ Bonner, president of the National Border Council that represents 10,500 agents, recommended active or reserve U.S. military units be stationed “on standby” at strategic locations along the border. “If the Mexican military is coming into the United States, our law enforcement agents do not have the training to deal with that,” Bonner told the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Investigations. The proposal was one of several that Bonner and Texas law enforcement agents laid out as Congress launched its first investigation into Mexican incursions. Unauthorized Mexican military have entered the United States 231 times over the past decade in what Department of Homeland Security officials call “incursions.” Federal officials say the vast majority of those incidents are non-confrontational and that the numbers are declining. David Aguilar, chief of the Border Patrol for the Department of Homeland Security, noted Tuesday that the number of incursions has declined by more than 50 percent since 2001, and that the agency has no evidence of systematic incursions.

The tape is cut on the new Finn Valley extension today.The official opening of the new extension to the Finn Valley Centre took place today following the recent completion of a €300K Construction Works Contract. Funding of €150,000 was provided by Donegal Local Development Company (DLDC) through the LEADER Programme with a similar amount of match funding being committed by the local committee of the Finn Valley AC Ltd.The Leader Programme is one of the core funding programmes administered by DLDC and has played a major role in revitalising rural communities in the Finn Valley area as well as numerous projects across Donegal. This new facility sees a major expansion to the existing Finn Valley facilities and will help address the recent increase in demand for several activities.Speaking at the opening Patsy McGonagle of Finn Valley said he is delighted to mark this occasion in partnership with DLDC. The added facility is already key to supporting the various services that Finn Valley are pleased to roll out to the community.Already it has supported the delivery of same and has in addition enabled the club to offer both full and part time employment. The club continues to remain active indeed proactive in considering new programmes that will benefit the social, education and health/wellbeing of the community. Our motto is “Active in the community since 1971” and this most welcome support and encouragement from the D L D C enables this. We are most appreciative of D L D C contribution.Also speaking at the event, Chairman of DLDC said it was a tremendous pleasure for him to represent DLDC and join with the Finn Valley Committee in the official opening of the new additional facility in Stranorlar. “The Finn Valley Centre is a testament to the success of the local committee and the LEADER Rural Development Programme both here in the county as well as throughout the nation. The aim of the LEADER Programme throughout Europe is to encourage local actors like the Finn Valley Committee to develop innovative enterprise and community facilities throughout Donegal. It is our view that this project is an excellent example of an initiative which meets the challenges and aims of LEADER.“While we acknowledge the importance of the LEADER grant, we must also acknowledge the commitment and input from the local committee who provided match funding of €150,000 to ensure the project was delivered to the outstanding specification which we witness here today”.Through various Leader Programmes Donegal Local Development Company has so far provided in excess of €23M to some 725 projects in Donegal. Along with match funding by project promoters an up to date total of over €55M has been invested in rural development projects by DLDC and local promoters which has contributed in a strategic way to building the Donegal economy.
