Second win A dark bay colt by Natural Selection out of Millenium Princess, bred by the Y.S. (1955) Limited, FUTURE KING chalked up his second win from five starts, and is almost certain to be crowned Champion Two-Year-Old. “He has really come on nicely since finishing second to Sorrentino’s Star in the Pick-3 Super Challenge, and Halledeen rode him perfectly to my instructions,” said DaCosta. “‘I had two strong contenders in the race, but Dreamliner apparently found a mile taxing, and it was left to Future King to wear them down in deep stretch. He has now established himself as the winter book favourite for the classics in 2016. He has class, and I have high hopes for him,” said DaCosta, who duly won his 11th consecutive trainers’ championship. PERFECT NEIGHBOUR, installed a 4-5 favourite with Orlando Foster aboard, outduelled arch-rival TYPEWRITER (Nelson up) leaving the half mile to win the Harry Jackson by two lengths from the much-improved LONG RUNNING TRAIN (5-2), but had to survive an objection from the rider of LONG RUNNING TRAIN for crossing the three-year-old filly a furlong out. On a tough day for form, players who saw the Pick-9 consolation paid out on six of nine, PERFECT NEIGHBOUR was one of four marginal favourites to score on the 11-race programme, which attracted a bumper holiday crowd. FUTURE KING, running at odds of 5-1 with Robert Halledeen riding for trainer Wayne DaCosta, got up in the nick of time to beat NUCLEAR AFFAIR (5-1) by a neck in the 104th running of the Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes over a mile at Caymanas Park yesterday, the third and final race in the $11.5 million Supreme Ventures Triple Crown Series for native bred two-year-olds. For DaCosta, it was a day he will long remember, having saddled the island’s top distance horse PERFECT NEIGHBOUR as well to win the traditional Boxing Day supporting feature for the Harry Jackson Memorial Cup over 2400 metres for the second year in a row for owners Jeffrey Mordecai and Alfred Lee. DaCosta easily won his 15th trainers’ championship to become Jamaica’s leading all-time trainer with 15 titles, finally surpassing Hall of Famer Philip Feanny with 14. Significantly, FUTURE KING and PERFECT NEIGHBOUR are not only trained and owned by the same connections, but are groomed by the veteran Alphanso Edwards. The cream of the crop contested the SVL Jamaica Two-Year-Old stakes and punters made the recent Pick-3 Super Challenge winner SORRENTINO’S STAR, with outgoing champion jockey Dane Nelson riding for Feanny, a strong favourite at 8-5 in a 15-horse field. But after racing in touch approaching the home turn SORRENTINO’S STAR flattened out to finish fifth. FUTURE KING, meanwhile was held off the early pace in midfield as ZUGULU (7-1) led for the first half mile before giving way to the DaCosta-trained DREAMLINER (5-1) under four-time champion jockey Omar Walker. But DREAMLINER came under pressure from several horses a furlong out. NUCLEAR AFFAIR (Aaron Chatrie) pointed on the rails but he was nabbed by the fast-finishing FUTURE KING within shades of the wire.

Relatives and family members of those facing court hearing for vandalizing ArcelorMittal properties earlier this year are pleading with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for clemency on their children.The citizens, who could not really channel their request through a spoke person, but decided to speak individually along the way, admitted that their children were in error to have destroyed the company’s properties, rather than seek peaceful means to resolve their grievances.The citizens spoke with President Sirleaf on Tuesday October 7, while she was on her way to ArcelorMittal’s operation site in Yekepa for a brief visit.It may be recalled on July 3rd and 4th 2014 facilities of the steel giant, ArcelorMittal, were attacked and vandalized by some residents of the county, mainly youths.The vandals attacked ArcelorMittal’s main mining facility, located in Tokadeh, Nimba County and held the company’s staff, contractors and employees hostage for hours.Offices were vandalized and mining equipment; vehicles, construction materials, office supplies and buildings were destroyed or looted.Law enforcement officers, who had gone to restore calm were shot at and injured, the government reported at the time. Several people were arrested for their alleged involvement in the incident.Some of those initially arrested were Gun Siaway, Emmanuel Zore and Wuo T. Dolo, whom county authorities accused of leading the protest against the company in the Gbarpy area which lies between the provincial capital Sanniquellie and Yekepa.During a stop-over in Zolowee Town, while en route to Yekepa on Tuesday, the citizens informed the Liberian leader that they did not understand why their children had attacked the company, causing the loss of millions of dollars.The citizens, majority of whom were elderly women, however, pleaded with the Liberian leader for a presidential pardon.President Sirleaf, in response, told the weeping women that the court process to determine as to whether they were culpable is ongoing. She urged them to let the law of Liberia take its course as a means to deter future repetition. She urged citizens of the county to seek peaceful means to their grievances as government will equally not allow their rights to be violated by any company operating in Nimba County, and Liberia in general.During her visit with the company, President Sirleaf reassured authorities of ArcelorMittal of her government’s fullest protection as long as it continues to operate under Liberian laws.The Liberian leader promised that those accused of vandalizing the properties of Arcelor Mittal earlier this would have their day in court.She assured the company that government will continue to create an enabling environment for investment opportunities thereby leading to job creation and will not allow any group of people to undermine development by their actions.Meanwhile the ArcelorMittal saga brought shock to most Liberians, the government, especially President Sirleaf, taking into account the over 14 years of violence the country had just gone through.In response to the incident, the Liberian President announced that Nimba would bear the brunt of the actions of some of its citizens, who recently allegedly looted and destroyed properties of the company, as well as some public infrastructures in the county.President Sirleaf said then that the violence in Nimba County on the company’s facility was a national threat, especially to the county’s economy.She said the violence appears to be springing up elsewhere in the country, including concession areas and said the exercise of freedom without the associated responsibility, leads to anarchy, something the government is not willing to tolerate.“Anarchy anywhere in our country undermines our collective progress. We cannot permit this to happen, the Liberian government is absolutely resolved that whatever, whomever, the unlawful incitement of the public to violence, will be dutifully punished according to law,” she said. President Sirleaf said the government’s collective response to the attacks must be decisive, immediate and forceful because of the gravity of the rioters’ action.Upon hearing the news that President Sirleaf had announced that the county would be held responsible for whatever damages the rioters caused, the Nimba County Legislative Caucus vehemently disagreed with the President’s utterances terming them as ‘not serious or jokes’.“The President is joking, we will challenge it constitutionally she has no constitutional authority she has no power.” Nimba Legislative Caucus represented by representatives Samuel Koigar and Jeremiah Koung.“This is the president who said she will adhere to the law if she said that then she is not reading her own constitution, she needs to read her budget law if someone commits a crime he or she must be investigated. Let no one provoke Nimba in the term of this crisis, Nimba has condemned the violence in the strongest term and let those who carry out the act take full responsibility and let none provoke Nimba.”Nimbains, comprising prominent citizens On July 14, in a release, condemned the violence and the act of vandalism carried out at the company by the young people.“We the citizens of Nimba County join our fellow Liberians today in condemning the shameful acts of violence and economic sabotage that were carried out by some residents from within the areas surrounding ArcelorMittal facilities,” “We are appalled that they elected to use violence and vandalism as a means of expressing their grievances. Nothing justifies such an action in a fragile society seeking to mend wounds from past acts of communal violence and war. Our hearts go out to the company and its staff as well as law enforcement officers and ordinary citizens who were victims of this despicable violence,” the citizens said.Some eminent sons of the county that signed the release were, Frederick Norkeh, Michael Slawon, Victor Kpaiseh, Carlton Boah and others.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

It occurred about 30 kilometers West of Valleyview, and involved a pick-up pulling a trailer, and a semi-trailer tanker truck.- Advertisement -Police have confirmed one person was injured, and after being transported to Valleyview Hospital, he was airlifted to Grande Prairie, in serious but stable condition.They also confirm a short portion of the highway was closed, and traffic re-routed during clean-up operations.There’s no word yet on charges. In Northwestern Alberta, the Valleyview RCMP is investigating a two vehicle Highway 43 crash, at approximately 4:30 yesterday afternoon.
Also the Los Angeles Police Department from West Valley and the firemen from Roscoe Boulevard were also so kind. I may look like a very tired bloodhound right now, but I am a very grateful one. – Carol Mallonee Woodland Hills Wildlife threat Re “Protection for mountain areas OK’d by House” (Dec. 5): Lisa Friedman’s article about the Rim of the Valley Study Act identifies yet another reason why Las Lomas, a massive 555-acre, 5,500 unit development proposed at the junction of Interstate 5 and State Route 14, should be stopped. Along with the negative impacts on traffic, air quality and infrastructure, Las Lomas would jeopardize the same wildlife corridor that the Rim of the Valley Study Act will help protect. The Federal Rim of the Valley legislation seeks to secure an important Los Angeles County wildlife corridor. Each of the 326 Congress members who overwhelmingly passed this legislation need to know that the proposed development endangers the same priceless natural resources they voted to guard from municipal encroachment and urban sprawl. – Andrew G. Fried Agua Dulce Not mainstream Re “Romney addresses Mormonism, more” (Dec. 7): Mitt Romney said, “Americans tire of those who would jettison their beliefs, even to gain the world.” Huh? Apparently Romney, the flip-flopping prophet of GOP profit, doesn’t understand the U.S. Constitution or that the U.S. is still a secular nation with freedom of religion. Romney is trying to convince the far-right Christians that he would continue to carry on President Bush’s intolerance, torture, war, greed and the abandonment of the poor, the middle class, the law and the Constitution. Bush’s far-right Christians and the Cheney/Rove neocons have never represented mainstream American values. – Jerold Drucker Tarzana Paul’s the man Re “Ending war will take courage” (Dec. 9): Walter Cronkite and David Krieger correctly argue that the Iraq war has eroded our rights, and we should bring our troops home now. A “conservative” presidential candidate, Ron Paul, has also opposed the Iraq war from Day One. He opposes the Patriot Act attack on the Bill of Rights, and opposes preemptive wars against countries that are no threat to us. I urge you to remember Dec. 15, the anniversary of the Bill of Rights, and register as a Republican so you can vote for Ron Paul on Feb. 5. – Bruce K. Bell Moorpark Shameful act Condoleezza Rice shames both Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks by sponsoring a so-called Mideast Peace Conference at Annapolis, but barring Israeli Jews from entering through the same door as Arabs – when Jews were foremost in fighting for the rights of African-Americans. – Aaron L.

Re “Animal deaths rise in L.A. shelters” (Dec. 7): The article provides a reasonably fair snapshot of how our animal care centers increasingly try to meet the challenge of treating injured or ill animals. Except for one important thing: outrageous allegations by a couple of activists that a substantial, though unspecified, number of dogs are dying because of fighting and/or illness due to overcrowded conditions. One blatantly false claim is that there are eight or 10 or 12 dogs in a cage. This charge can be immediately refuted by simply walking through any one of our six centers. Animal Services has implemented a program of “secret shoppers” to inspect all six centers and never once has a shopper found more than five small dogs in a kennel run, and almost always far fewer.
