Todee District Farmers Form Cooperative

first_imgFarmers in Todee Statutory District have begun teaming to form a Cooperative named and styled, “Todee District Farmers’ Multi-purpose Cooperative Society, LTD” (TODEMCUS). The cooperative, according to the group, is aimed at uniting farmers in that part of Liberia.Providing the goal of the Cooperative to farmers, the Chairman of TODEMCUS Rev. Jerry S. Langley, said the cooperative will help sort out assistance from National and International organizations as well as institutions supporting the agriculture sectors.The cooperative will also help empower local farmers through capacity building, including training, provision of farming materials and seedlings.Mr. Langley intimated that the cooperative would have two key agricultural productions—rubber production and vegetable crop production. He said the exercise is intended to help buttress government efforts to grow more food for nation and people.Mr. Langley further stated that the Cooperative would source support from the World Bank through a grant system where farmers who are full members of the cooperative will be given individual grants to carry out large-scale farming, especially in the rubber production area.He spoke last Friday at a well attended awareness meeting with farmers in Koon town, Todee District, rural Montserrado County.Making remarks on behalf of his boss James K. Flomo, the Cooperative Development Agency representative (CDA),   Ernest S. Jallah noted that farmers’ groups would be empowered by the World Bank assistance program through the Cooperative Agency. He said the CDA will serve as middle channel to receive direct aid from the World Bank Assistance Program.Mr. Jallah, however, challenged farmers take seriously the ongoing formation of the Todee District Farmers’ Multi-Purpose Cooperative Society.Speaking further, the Policy Consultant at the National Elections Commission of Liberia, Mr. John K. Langley, Sr., thanked the chairman of the Cooperative for the CDA’s  farsightedness and admonished farmers to see the cooperative as theirs and be united to achieve its goals.He encouraged farmers to support the initiative and avert what he described as back-biting, and encourage those ideas that bring about success in the district.The NEC Policy Consultant noted that Todee District will succeed in food production if farmers in that part of the country can unite and work together.For his part, the Superintendent of Todee Statutory District, David Johnson, Sr., encouraged farmers to hold together and take seriously the idea of forming a farmers’ cooperative. This would help open doors of support for farmers, including those who lack the capacity to engage in farming.Mr. Johnson recalled that over the decades, Todee Statutory District has lagged behind in mass agricultural production due to what he termed as the refusal of farmers to team up and engage in large-scale farming.Mr. Johnson thanked Chairman Langley for the step taken to unite farmers in the district with the purpose of promoting large-scale farming in the area. He assured them of his unflinching support to the cooperative and declared his full membership of the organization.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

A cool million bucks – lost and returned

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – John Suhrhoff found the Louis Vuitton bag on a Sausalito park bench during a lunch stop in the scenic city following a weekend hike. Inside the bag, police say, was a treasure trove: a 12-carat diamond ring, pearl and emerald jewelry, a Cartier watch and roughly $500 in Canadian and American cash. The contents were worth a cool $1 million. But the respiratory therapist didn’t think of heading to a pawn shop – he returned the bag to Sausalito police headquarters on Monday afternoon after failing to track down the owners. The bag is en route to the Ghannadian family of Toronto, Canada, who were in Northern California for a daughter’s wedding. “Every person I know or associate with would have done the same thing,” Suhrhoff, 56, of San Rafael, said Tuesday. “I’m glad to be able to help.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 The Ghannadians told the Marin Independent Journal of Novato that their flight to Toronto was scheduled for Sunday evening, so they decided to visit Sausalito. The town is known for its waterfront views of San Francisco and is a tourist hub. Shahla Ghannadian briefly left her husband in charge of the purse, which contained jewelry she wore at the wedding, according to the paper. Suhrhoff said he found the bag on a park bench near a tour bus depot. Ghannadian started crying when she returned to her San Francisco hotel and realized the bag was gone, the paper said. The family went to Sausalito police headquarters and didn’t have any luck – and were told chances were slim the bag would be returned. But thanks to Suhrhoff, the bag and its contents are safe. “You have to be a real man to return that bag,” Ghannadian’s son Ali told the Independent Journal. “Even the bag is expensive. We’re really, really thankful to that guy.” The family did not return calls requesting comment on Tuesday. Sausalito police Sgt. Kurtis Skoog said it’s rare to find someone so honest that they’d pass up a bag of expensive loot. Many others would have tried to pawn the contents off for a fraction of their value, he said. Suhrhoff is happy the bag is headed back to Canada but couldn’t help wondering why the family was taking such pricey items on day trips to begin with. “It seems like a lot of expensive jewelry to be carrying around in a purse,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Moorpark to hit below-par rentals

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsThere are between 700 and 1,000 rental homes and duplexes and 1,100 apartment units within Moorpark’s city limits, Planning Manager Dave Bobardt said. If the new ordinance is adopted, Moorpark would join Simi Valley as the second eastern Ventura County city to crack down on illegal and unsafe housing. To get a better handle on illegal conversions and combat substandard living conditions, Simi Valley launched a system to track down code violators last year, said Peter Lyons, the city’s deputy planning director. The program has since identified 300 such cases. Moorpark’s proposal, introduced last week, would require an initial inspection of the inside and outside of homes, annual inspections of the homes’ exteriors – unless obvious concerns warrant a look inside – and registration of rental housing units. The proposal will come back to the council for a second reading in a few weeks, but it could be months before an enforcement program is in place. City officials are studying the cost and whether more resources will be needed to administer it. Cities with similar programs charge between $50 and $150 per inspection, which might be enough to sustain the program, according to a city staff report. MOORPARK – More than a year after a fatal Simi Valley fire that left one man dead and a dozen others homeless, the city of Moorpark is going after absentee landlords who unlawfully convert their rental properties for profit. Officials took the first step Wednesday in addressing substandard living conditions by proposing annual inspections to ensure that rental units are safe and up to code, including having working smoke detectors, adequate wiring and working plumbing. “This is meant to protect the renters,” City Councilman Clint Harper said. “We want to make sure a tragedy doesn’t occur in Moorpark like it did in Simi. This is not meant as punitive but to increase safety.” In January 2005, a fire swept through a three-bedroom Cochran Street home crowded with more than a dozen renters living in a converted garage, makeshift bedroom and two trailers. A 23-year-old man was killed and his girlfriend and son were injured. “It’s a safety issue,” Councilwoman Roseann Mikos said. “It’s a step in the right direction to agree that we need to have some kind of a program.” angie.valencia@dailynews.com (805) 583-7604160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
