The first two rounds had something in common: they traced back home the disadvantage of the first leg. The victims were Tenerife B and Moralo, leaving La Nucía as the final rival in the final by Segunda B. The Municipal of Linarejos left everything open for the return, with the plus of not having regretted any visiting goal. In the decisive one, Bolo advanced to Linares, who would suffer his modus operandi in the two previous phases. Torres put the boards in 71 ‘and San Julian gave his glory to the horn. A major disappointment, which, of course, has failed to sink the Andalusians.22 to 20 teamsOne of the most news of the Third Division last season was the massive decline of Group IX after the failure of the Andalusians of Second B and the Federation remained firm in its idea of reducing the supranumerary group from 22 to 20 teams. In this way and despite the claims of those involved, the burden was reduced by four parties. Something that, no doubt, help the four clubs for the Playoff, as they will arrive on equal terms towards his rivals of the other groups and not with 360 minutes more under his legs and the need to play several games per week to meet the calendar.Near the machada in Copa del ReyThe RFEF gave this year the opportunity for Third Clubs to measure themselves from the first round with a First or Second Division. The chance of the balls meant that the rival of Linares was Girona and the heroic was not exactly far. Lara ahead of the locals in Linarejos, but Marc Gual, now Real Madrid Castilla striker, was responsible for breaking down the dreams of Juan Arsenal’s team. Even so, the balance of the competition was positive and the place for next season is practically guaranteed. So it will be as long as it does not fall from the first place.The results now support a team with ten years of history, after he had to be reborn in 2009, beginning his career in the First Provincial. Soon they responded on the grass, reaching Third in 2012-13. Of course, the fourth category of Spanish football has punished Linares on numerous occasions, which he achieved a heroic rise in 15-16, but was not able to maintain the category. Who knows if your current career will take you back to the best. Surely, it is the objective. It’s more, its president Jesús Medina chatted with AS and prioritized promotion before playing the Cup semifinals. He also defined the club he runs as a “family”, focused on “work” and always walks hand in hand with his fans.If these lines have not served to understand what is the Linares in the grass, the same president explains: “The game system is variable, the coach likes to change a lot, even on different occasions throughout a match. Sometimes we go out with a line of three, sometimes with four behind … We are changing, but we like to have the ball. Maybe last season more, but in this we still have it. Sometimes we wait for the rival and go out with fast transitions“It works and is already on its way to Second B. The fate of the ball will say, but the course is almost unbeatable. The Third Division of Spanish football is a battle without quarter that faces the 18 groups to the major challenge of making the leap to professionalism. For this reason, and despite the budgetary differences between the clubs, until the last day there is usually a fierce struggle to occupy the Playoff positions and, above all, to reach the first position, which gives an unpayable opportunity: to have a double option in the qualifiers for promotion. Moreover, in most tables there is still competition. The same does not happen in Group IX where there is an undisputed leader. Or, rather, a cyclone called Linares.The Andalusian team has, nothing more and nothing less, 17 points ahead of the second classified. In the absence of 14 days, it is evidence that will dispute the direct tie for the promotion against another of the leaders, although from the club they remain cautious. 24 meetings later, the Linares records are almost perfect: suma 65 in the locker, 21 wins, 2 draws, only 1 loss, 54 goals in favor (2.25 per game), 13 against! (0.54 per duel) and a margin of 24 points from the fifth classified. In other words, only a miracle will take them away from the postseason. The data is even more striking if they are broken down. Juan Arsenal gave wings to his players from day one. So much so that they added a whopping eight consecutive start victories. That’s when The Ejido, currently ranked second, managed to overthrow them. That happened on October 20 and, since then, the fans have not gone home with the disappointment of defeat. Two draws as a visitor also represent a small stain on his impolite curriculum. Merit, of course, given the conditions of the fields, the hardness of the category and the mental strength not to decline despite the capital advantage that it has.Debt with the LinaresLast season Linares was one of the best teams in the entire category with a total of 90 points. This course is on the way to adding a similar figure, despite the fact that Group IX has two less teams. Even so, he suffered a chronic evil: the presence of Real Jaén. It is not usual to see someone reach the three figures in the classification, but the jienenses succeeded. 101 points endorsed them in the face of the Playoffs, but the disappointment was capitalized. This year they continue the rivalry, although with a notable difference of score. Despite being able to eliminate Alavés from the Copa del Rey, Jaén is experiencing a bad year at the sports level (fifth of the group) and, especially at the institutional level, since they are on the verge of disappearance.The Playoff, a mousetrapDespite the good performance of Linares Deportivo last season, the fact that Jaén was a colossus deprived him of having a double option. So, had to face three qualifiers to ascend to Second Division B. Despite so many months of success, the Playoff does not forgive and a ruling can condemn you to media ostracism one more campaign. However, the work of the team was not disappointing at all and remained at the gates of celebrating the change of category.
Who is it that seems determined to spoil Ellen’s name and further vandalize her legacy? Is it the Liberia National Police? Is it the National Security Agency and its head, who is the President’s own son, Fumba? Who is it determined to deflate one of the last remaining good things about this administration—freedom of speech and freedom of the press? Whoever it is that intends to turn Liberia into a police state may have been a small boy during the Samuel Doe or Charles Taylor days, when freedom of speech or of the press, was nonexistent. But where are they now—Doe and Taylor? All of those who think they have power and are using it to mistreat, incarcerate and humiliate other people should realize and know that the time will soon come when that power will end, for NOTHING lasts forever. It has long been alleged that the NSA has been jamming the Costa Morning Show every day. This is an attempt to stifle freedom of speech and of the press, two constitutional rights which President Sirleaf has, to her enduring credit, striven to uphold, protect and defend.But does the President know what has been happening to the Costa Show? If she does, what has she done about it? Does she not know that such behavior is a blatant attempt to undermine her legacy? For Liberians and the whole world know that Ellen is a staunch defender of freedom of speech and of the press. She has personally stated that she will take no reprisal against those who lambast her on the radio or TV talk shows or in any other medium. Liberians and the world have admired and appreciated her for that.So what is the LNP or the NSA trying to prove? It is a pity they do not realize that they are accomplishing three things only: first, making Mr. Costa a greater hero than he already is; second, undermining a critical part of President Sirleaf’s legacy—her defense of free speech and free press; and thirdly, exposing Liberia and its government to international criticism and ridicule, especially from those organizations that are particularly watching—the Press Union of Liberia, the International Press Institute (IPI), the World Press Freedom Committee (WPFC), Reporters Without Borders, etc.Is it true that the NSA has been jamming Mr. Costa’s station? Why? What does Fumba Sirleaf perceive that the Ellen government has to hide and does not want the public to know or talk about? That alone is a terrible indictment on the government. Fumba Sirelaf should know this, or is he too inexperienced to know it?If indeed he is that inexperienced, we hope that this editorial will help him to understand that such behavior DOES NOT PAY. Remember, the President is striving to leave a respectable legacy—that was what the Cabinet Retreat last week was all about. Fumba Sirleaf himself, and ALL other government officials, should also know that they, too, should be concerned about their own legacies—how they wish to be remembered.We commend the government for releasing Mr. Costa yesterday afternoon. But we pray that the GOl will give strict instructions to the NSA or whoever may be jamming his radio station to stop this nefarious and unconstitutional practice.We could not end this editorial without calling on the President to reopen the National Chronicle newspaper. We are afraid that the GOL can no longer take Mr. Philibert Browne and his newspaper to court, for whatever offense GOL perceives the National Chronicle may have committed. Why? Because GOL has already taken action before due process of law. We recall, in this connection, what Associate Justice Emmanuel Koroma stated in his 1984 verdict against the Liberian government in the case, Republic of Liberia Vs. the Daily Observer Newspaper, when the Samuel Doe government closed down the newspaper, then proceeded to sue it on a “quo warranto” charge. Courageously dismissing the case, Mr. Justice Koroma told the government, “When you come to equity, you must come with clean hands.” The government’s hands were not clean, he said, because it first took the law into its own hands by closing down the newspaper before seeking remedy from the court.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Guyana Police Force’s A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) on Friday named Sergeant Keith Conway as the most outstanding Policeman for 2018 for his exceptional performance. Sergeant Gavin Boyce was given the second place for 2018. The announcement was made during the Division’s annual awards ceremony in the presence of the Police Commissioner Leslie James, Prisons Director Gladwin Samuels, commanders, other ranks and stakeholders.In response to the award, Sergeant Conway explained that he worked mainly in the area of crime, solving some high-profile murder cases for this year.

I like to interact with the public, especially youths that people condemning, get them involved in sports. I let them know that we the Police don’t have nothing against you. We have something against you when you are involved in criminal activities,” said Boyce.Both officers were rewarded with cash and other consolation prizes. During that time, eight other ranks were also promoted from the Division.Divisional Commander Marlon Chapman also shared some remarks, stating that he is pleased with the performance of all officers during the course of 2018, since high-profile offenders were arrested for various criminal offences.

Also, the dismantling of the famous carjacking ring and the dangerous criminal group that was responsible for targeting customers leaving central banks,” the Divisional Commander informed.He noted that officers have managed to keep Georgetown and its environs under control during the Christmas season and parliamentary sessions.

The students at St Eunan’s National School in Raphoe made the most of the good weather this morning when they set off on their Rainbow Relay walk around the town.The students and teachers who were joined by several parents and Relay for Life committee member, Liam Porter, all wore bright colours for the walk – symbolising the many different coloured ribbons associated with various cancers. “The aim of the rainbow walks is to raise awareness of cancer – schools don’t need to raise any funds to do this, but of course if they choose to do so they can. The main aim though is the awareness and it was great to see the children dressed in their various colours enjoying a walk through the town on a glorious day,” said Liam. “I am sure some people in the town will have been wondering what the walk was about and as conversations happen about that, it raises awareness of Relay for Life and its aims of helping the Irish Cancer Society continue with its fantastic work in Donegal,” Liam said.He added: “The pupils from the older classes were all very much aware of the reasons behind the walk and were very keen to take part and it was great to see the effort they made for the day.”Liam is hoping that other schools across the county will follow the example set by St Eunan’s over the next few weeks.“I’m hoping other schools will take some time and organise their own walk at a time that suits them over the next few weeks. It doesn’t even have to be outside the school grounds. A walk around the school yard even can help raise awareness and if any school would like to organise a walk or find out more they can call me on 0862657758 or e.mail email@example.com,” Liam concluded.
