The South African Ambassador to Liberia, Masilo Mabeta, announced at the weekend that his government had decided to begin issuing visas to Liberians. This is wonderful news because it will save our people the costly and embarrassing inconvenience of traveling to neighboring countries to obtain S.A. visas.Ambassador Mabeta went to the Foreign Ministry last Friday to inform Foreign Minister Augustine Ngafuan about the S.A. government’s decision. Mr. Ngafuan thanked the Ambassador profusely and under the same breath pleaded with the European Union to emulate South Africa’s example. It is hard to understand why the Europeans are continuing to punish Liberians with the humiliating, costly and time-consuming necessity to travel to neighboring countries for visas to enter Europe.If each European nation thinks it too costly to set up a consular section in its embassy in Monrovia, why can’t the whole of Europe mandate the European Union Delegation to Liberia to handle this aspect and save Liberians all the trouble, including time and cost of traveling to Abidjan, Abuja, Accra, Dakar, Freetown to get a European visa?In 2010 following a harrowing experience traveling from Monrovia to Accra and to Abuja in search for a Schengen for his scheduled travel to Austria and Germany, the publisher of the Daily Observer wrote an odyssey which was published in this newspaper. It claimed the immediate attention of the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, Bodo Schaff, who said he had immediately reported the matter to the Foreign Office in Berlin. After reading Mr. Best’s odyssey, Ambassador Schaff did not only apologize to the Liberian people for all the inconveniences; he also pledged to work with his government toward redressing the situation. Alas, the good, friendly and effective Ambassador most probably did what he could, and has since ended his tenure and returned to Germany. But the problem remains. If a Liberian or person or any other nationality residing in Liberia wishes to travel to Europe, he or she still has to go to one of those African capitals to apply for a visa. In his September 28 and 29, 2010 odyssey, Mr. Best said he had first gone to Accra and the German embassy there told him to go to the Austrian embassy in Abuja, Nigeria. He traveled to Abuja the next day and was told that he should rather go to Dakar. He told them that that would make him late for the event in Vienna should he go to Dakar. It was upon the kind intervention of the Liberian Ambassador in Abuja, Alhassan Conteh, that the Austrian embassy finally relented, and the Observer publisher was able to get the visa.Mr. Best, a born Liberian, could not understand why it caused him so much trouble getting German and Austrian visas when Liberia has been for nearly two centuries Germany’s closest African friend. The Germanic states, Mr. Best said in his essay, became in 1848 among the first foreign powers to recognize Liberia’s independence. “There have almost always been cordial diplomatic and sisterly relations between Germany and Liberia. Indeed, before the Second World War, it was Germany that dominated the Liberian economy . . . it was German merchants that shipped Liberian produce, including coffee, cocoa, piassava, palm oil, palm kernels, pepper and other products to Europe and elsewhere. Most of the medical doctors in Liberia were German . . . until World War II when Germans had to leave Liberia. But following the War [long before most African states gained independence from their European colonizers] Liberia resumed very cordial diplomatic relations with Germany. President W.V.S. Tubman and Conrad Adenauer, [Germany’s] first post-war Chancellor, were very good friends, and exchanged state visits in the 1950s and 1960s. This friendship led to many, many Liberians pursuing professional studies in Germany in a wide range of fields, including Architecture, Engineering, Medicine, Natural Science, Philosophy, Social Science and Vocational and Technical training. In the mid-1960s German industrialists, Eugene Plotzky, invested in the Bong Mining Company . . . The German government built one of the biggest and most beautiful embassy compounds in Monrovia, which spanned Tubman Boulevard to the Atlantic Ocean.”We urge the EU and all European embassies in Monrovia to do their best to ease the pain of Liberians by pleading with their governments to mandate the EU Delegation in Liberia to start issuing Schengen visas in Monrovia.

C.B. Dunbar Hospital Medical Director, Dr. Kour Elma Geah (middle) speaking with J. Cyrus Saygbe, Acting Country Manager of Solidaridad (far right), during a one-day visit to the C.B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital As part of its 50th-anniversary celebration and fulfillment of its Social Corporate Responsibilities, Solidaridad Liberia’s office over the weekend donated assorted materials to the C.B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital in Gbarnga, Bong County, to reinforce its operational activities. Some of the donated materials included clothing, beds and sanitary products. The C. B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital operates as the only maternity center in central Liberia. It caters to hundreds of patients’ needs, ranging from delivery to special operational care for infants. However, due to limited supply of materials, including beds and sanitary products, the hospital has not been able to make the expected impact. The hospital’s Medical Director, Dr. Kour Elma Geah, who received the materials, said they would be used to curtail some of the problems the administration faces, practically meeting the challenge of treating some of the patients being diagnosed of infectious diseases; many of them being pregnant women and babies’ mothers.Dr. Geah lauded the assistance from Solidaridad Liberia’s Office, but said that the hospital has recently experienced influx of patients.“We are extremely grateful for your timely intervention. We have huge patients intake, and we promise to use these materials, especially the sanitary pads for the right purpose,” she assured.Portion of the assorted materials donated by Solidaridad to the C.B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital in Margibi CountyEarlier, J. Cyrus Saygbe, Solidaridad Acting Country Manager, told visitors while touring the facilities that his institution, was honored to have identified with the hospital, because of the positive testimonies and impacts the hospital has striven for over the years. “I was touched when I was listening to the young mothers, and the suffering they go through. It is not easy to be a mother; imagine some of them have to cut their lappers into pieces and use the pieces as their babies’ diapers, because they have no other means,” Mr. Saygbe said.Also, administrators from the office of the Bong County Health Team, who witnessed the turning over ceremony of those materials to the hospital, thanked Solidaridad for the level of assistance thus far. An administrator of Bong County Health Team, Jonah N. Tokpa, suggested that they use Solidaridad’s effort as a case study to inform other donors who would eventually identify with the hospital with whatever tokens of support.Solidaridad’s 50th-anniversary celebration was also followed by sporting activities, which Saygbe said is part of the institution’s plan to familiarize themselves with students as the entity plans to recruit some of the students from the community college on an internship basis.

Everyone had a good laugh, Smoltz included. He sure can use a little levity as he heads into his 19th big league season with the Atlanta Braves. Just a few days before pitchers and catchers reported to camp, Smoltz announced he was getting a divorce from his wife of 16 years – a stunning blow for the deeply religious parents of four school-age children, a couple who expressed their faith through well-known philanthropy that included raising millions of dollars for a Christian school in suburban Atlanta. KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Having just wrapped up a spring training workout, John Smoltz decided it was time to have a little fun. He broke into some good-natured bantering with the clubhouse attendants, who were going through a dirty pile of uniforms. “I don’t think they’re using detergent anymore,” the pitcher quipped. The ordeal has clearly taken a toll on Smoltz, who’s less than three months from his 40th birthday and noticeably thinner than he was a year ago. But he’s counting on his convictions to get him through this personal crisis. “I’m doing good,” he insisted Sunday, speaking in a low voice while sitting at his locker. “I’m focused on the right things. I’m talking about my faith. That’s the only thing that’s going to get me through any of this stuff. I’m still determined to be and do the same things I’ve done before. I’m trying to be positive. Attitude is a choice.” Smoltz is approaching his divorce with the same attitude that helped him overcome some of his on-the-field hurdles, such as four elbow operations and the meandering career path that took him from starter to closer and back to starter again. “I’ve had to overcome a lot,” he said. “It’s not like I haven’t had to do this before. “From that standpoint, this will just be another challenge. More importantly, this is going to prove to be an example.” Smoltz won the Cy Young Award with a 24-8 season in 1996. He set an NL record with 55 saves in 2002. He has 30 wins over the last two seasons, again establishing himself as one of baseball’s top starters. Now, Smoltz seems determined to prove that splitting up with his wife doesn’t undermine the message he’s been trying to spread. “Either the words match up to what I’ve been saying or the principles that I adhere to will be tested,” he said. “A lot of people are watching. This is no different than when I was going from starter to closer. Everyone said I couldn’t do it. This is no different.” Smoltz is in the final year of his contract with the Braves, and has made no secret that he wants to begin and finish his career with the same team. There have been some discussions about a new contract, but Smoltz is already coming to grips with the fact that he might have to go somewhere else. If anything, the dissolution of his marriage has taught him that nothing lasts forever. “I really don’t know what the future holds,” said Smoltz, who’s not even considering retirement. “I’ve made it known my whole career that I wanted to stay here. But times are changing.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
“I wanted to do a mural here, to do something that inspired \ and that connected them to the community,” Vargas said. Vargas and Avena have created several murals throughout the southwest – in New Mexico, Texas, California and even parts of Mexico, they said. “This started off as a great idea to add color to our walls and beautify the school,” Alvidrez said, adding that the school’s approximately 1,000 students raised $5,000 to fund the project. Eighth-grader and Student Body President Richard Rios, 14, said the new mural brings a sense of pride to students. But it also does a lot for his school, he added. “I’m happy that the school did something to make it look better. The wall is not as plain as it looked before,” said Rios. “I hope students will look at it and be proud.” email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Computers, spaceships and a series of culturally diverse faces line the mural’s opposite end, hinting at a future of modernization and education. And at its central focal point, the mural shows images of students graduating in caps and gowns. “Graduation is the ultimate goal,” Vargas explained. Rivera Middle School and city officials joined students Wednesday at an unveiling ceremony for the artwork, which was created by Vargas, 28, his longtime friend Jorge Avena, and Rivera Middle Principal Andrew Alvidrez. • Photo Gallery: Past, Present and FuturePICO RIVERA – Rivera Middle School history teacher Elias Vargas stood beneath a towering image of Pio Pico, California’s last governor under Mexican rule, and explained the theme of the school’s newest mural. “We wanted to show the past, present and future of Pico Rivera – where it’s been, where it is, and where it’s going,” Vargas said Wednesday. The mural, titled “Presencia de Pico Rivera,” or “Presence of Pico Rivera,” was completed last month. It colorfully portrays the transformation of Pico Rivera, once a predominantly ranching community.
