Most Rev. Archbishop Lewis Jerome Zeigler of the Catholic Archdiocese of Monrovia has disclosed that despite financial and logistical problems, the Justice and Peace Commission is not dormant, as feared by the public and members of the Catholic Church.Archbishop Zeigler recalled that during the time of his predecessor, the late Archbishop Michael Kpakala Francis, the JPC was very vocal and active because of the situation in the country then. Though there are logistical and financial difficulties, Archbishop Zeigler maintained that the JPC is not dormant, but working inwardly.Most Rev. Zeigler lamented the difficult challenges facing the Catholic Church and its various institutions such as schools and health centers. He said the JPC, which presently does not have a vehicle, was feeling restrained by a lack of financial support.It may be recalled that in recent times, Archbishop Zeigler seems to be gradually— but surely— fitting his feet into the big shoes of his predecessor, the highly outspoken late Archbishop Francis, who was hailed by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf in her 2006 inaugural address as the “Conscience of the Nation.”On New Year’s Eve, Rev. Zeigler reminded Liberians that the fight against corruption must start from somewhere, mainly the family, and all other sectors of society where traces of corruption can be found.He said Liberians need to admit that corruption has permeated (spread through) the entire country. “We are all corrupt and we need to admit that and try to work on ourselves individually, and then we will be able to look at the another person say he/she is corrupt.”Sometime last year, Archbishop Zeigler said, underscoring the important role the media needs to play at “this critical junction of our peace sustainability and reconciliation, ”challenged Liberian radio station owners to control their talk shows, saying many of the conversations would not promote peace and reconciliation. “I beg you; please control your talk shows.”He warned that sustaining the 10-year-old peace and forging ahead toward total reconciliation for all Liberians would— to a large extent— depend on the type and quality of news and programs the media houses try to disseminate.The JPC was established by the Catholic Church in Liberia in 1991 under the sheperdship of late Archbishop Francis as a non-governmental organization (NGO). It was formed in response to a century-long history of widespread human rights abuses and injustices accentuated by the Liberian civil war, which began in December 24,1989. The work of the JPC includes monitoring and reporting on human rights violations in Liberia; provision of legal aid and coordinates the Human Rights Fact-Finding Documentation and Reporting Program. It works concretely for reconciliation in Liberia through its Conflict Resolution and Peace-building program, which include training, workshops, and the promotion of dialogue and tolerance at the local level, by utilizing existing traditional mechanisms where possible.The Former Minister of Public Works, Samuel Kofi Woods, and the former Chairperson of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), Madam Frances Johnson-Morris, were among the many prominent personalities that headed the JPC during the civil war and post-war periods.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
There is already a fourth lane from Kuehner to the county line, so the project will result in four lanes eastbound from Tapo Canyon to the county line. The work will include bridge widening and soundwalls on both sides of the freeway, along with fiber-optic cable installation to monitor traffic flow. Originally, officials had hoped to widen the freeway in both directions, but because of rising construction costs and state budget problems, the $46.5 million set aside in the state Transportation Improvement Program was enough only for the eastbound side. Transportation officials said they hope to have funding to widen the westbound lanes starting in mid-2008. Plans have already been made to extend the widening to Moorpark, but because of funding uncertainties, officials could not say when the entire stretch would be four lanes. The current project to widen the eastbound lanes from Tapo Canyon is expected to be finished in 2009. SIMI VALLEY – Work is beginning this month to widen one of the most congested stretches of the Ronald Reagan Freeway, a $46.5 million project officials hope will eventually lead to widening the entire freeway from the Los Angeles County line to Moorpark. Government officials and Simi Valley residents welcomed the start of construction at a groundbreaking Thursday at the top of the Santa Susana Pass, marking the start of the project to add one lane on the eastbound side of the 118 from Tapo Canyon Road to Kuehner Drive. “Breaking ground on the first phase of the 118-widening project is very important to the city, the county and the region,” Mayor Paul Miller told the gathering. “This will allow our residents and others to spend more of their time out of their cars and doing other things that are important to them – more time with families, focusing on their jobs or just having fun.” The widening comes as Caltrans crews are working to expand Highway 23 from Moorpark to Thousand Oaks, another key route for east Ventura County commuters. The plan is to add one lane in each direction by 2010 from the Ventura Freeway to Moorpark. Once that’s done, Caltrans wants to revamp the 101/23 interchange, where traffic bottlenecks each morning and evening during rush hour. Elected officials at Thursday’s groundbreaking said traffic congestion has become one of the most important issues for eastern Ventura County residents. “It takes a lot of money and a lot of work from a lot of people to make this happen,” county Supervisor Peter Foy said of the freeway widening. He is among the local residents who lose 20 minutes to an hour a day when traffic is congested during commutes from Simi Valley to the San Fernando Valley. Simi Valley City Councilwoman Barbra Williamson said the widening project will help the people of Simi Valley, Moorpark and Thousand Oaks who have been hoping to see the freeway expanded for decades. “It’s been a long, long road,” she said. email@example.com (805) 583-7602160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

West Ham striker Andy Carroll is set to play his first behind closed doors friendly in the next week as he looks to finally put his injury torment behind him.The 25-year-old was forced to miss the majority of last season with a heel injury and suffered more heartache on the club’s pre-season tour to New Zealand when he picked up a serious ankle problem during the summer.But the England forward has made a speedy recovery and is back training with the first-team squad.With West Ham breaking into the top four this season, manager Sam Allardyce does not have to rush his comeback and will make sure he has enough game time over the next couple of weeks to ensure he is 100 per cent ready for a return to Premier League action.Allardyce said: “At the moment we are playing very well which does not force us into getting Andy back.“We need to give him game time as well as training with the lads and see how he improves his sharpness and his match fitness.” West Ham striker Andy Carroll 1
The theme was no grand leap for a man with stellar pirate bona fides. A tattoo that reads “Yo ho, yo ho, it’s a pirate’s life for me” is hidden from clients who visit his Granada Hills office, but a skull-and-crossbones on his desk is not. At Duncan’s Bridgeport home, a convincing life-size figure aptly named Cutthroat Bill is posed charging up a rope suspended in a lofty stairwell. Bill’s mateys, Pete and Capt. Hook, are in the dining room. The home’s decor is plank wood floors, dark shutters and faux stone archways. Duncan’s business partner, Harry Geozian, recently came back from Charleston, S.C., with the gift of a pirate hat. The drive to fund hospital services stems from long hours spent commuting to see his wife, Kathy, who was hospitalized and undergoing cancer treatment outside the valley. “We had to go to Northridge Hospital (Medical Center) and UCLA, that’s the whole reason I got involved with the charity,” he said. “I think it’s important we have a hospital (here) that can take care of every aspect of health issues.” All the while Duncan worked and cared for the couple’s two children, now 19 and 21. Kathy, who died from the illness, also underwent treatment at Newhall Memorial, which offers surgery, radiation, including tomotherapy, and chemotherapy, and is affiliated with numerous specialty groups. Geozian said his partner’s humor eased Kathy’s sadness when her long blond hair shed from chemotherapy. “He shaved his head,” Geozian said. “He made it less painful for her. He cared less about how he looked and about what people thought of him and more about making her … happy, less sad.” Jewelry may be dropped off at Newhall Memorial’s Foundation Office through the end of April, and Duncan will be present this Friday from noon to 3 p.m. The auction at the Frontier Toyota-Henry Mayo “Drive Safe” Golf Classic netted $55,000 last year and organizers are aiming for $65,000 this year, said Chris Luechtefeld, co-chairman of the event. Last year’s proceeds from the entire tournament totalled $287,000, and Luechtefeld’s goal is to raise $380,000 this year. The 180 slots for participants are almost sold out.

Values per ounce vary based on purity, with 24-carat items ranking at the top, 10-carat at the bottom. The hospital cannot afford to provide appraisals for inexpensive items, but would consider doing so for costlier ones. Those wishing to claim a charitable contribution on a tax return would need to submit a 1040 tax form with a Schedule A for itemized deductions, said Victor Omelczenko, an Internal Revenue Service spokesman. SANTA CLARITA – A benevolent pirate enthusiast hopes to parlay his penchant for booty into helping sick people get well. Racking his brain for new ways to raise money for a local hospital charity event, Steven Duncan devised a plan: Get people to donate unwearable jewelry languishing in a jewelry box, convert it into cash, buy one exquisite item and auction it off. “A lot of people have old jewelry, a pinkie ring from the ’70s, an earring you lost the mate to,” said Steven Duncan, a mortgage broker who has a pirate tattoo, a skull-and-crossbones on his desk and a home decorated with pirate regalia. “It is a way for people in the Santa Clarita Valley who have a family member who benefitted from the hospital to give back.” Money raised at the 33rd annual charity golf tournament and auction slated for May 20 at the Valencia Country Club will help fund trauma and emergency services at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.
