playing superbly to upset the inform Kiwis.Their success has mirrored that of their men’s side who play England in the corresponding final, and Taylor underscored the importance of both sides winning on Sunday.”It would mean a lot. We’ve been talking about it, just hanging out with the guys. It’s been so good,” she said.”Words can’t really explain how much it would mean for both teams. Especially for us because we’ve never been to the final before. For us to get this one would be like a dream come true.”Taylor has been the inform batsman with nearly 200 runs in a side where the batting has not really clicked, and Britney Cooper’s career-best 61 in the semi-final was the Windies Women’s only half-century.However, their bowling has been penetrative with Taylor claiming eight wickets with her off-breaks and leg-spinner Afy Fletcher and medium pacer Deandra Dottin both taking seven wickets.Note: The match starts at 4 a.m. Jamaica time.

The Tarpeh, Nmah and Lopez Families have announced with deepest regret the home going of Dr. Dominic N. Tarpeh, former Deputy Director of the Liberian Institute of Public Administration; former Vice President for Administration, University of Liberia; Former Senior Program Manager, Governance Commission; current Chairman of the Board, the University of Liberia.This sad event occurred on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at his residence on the Old Congo Town Back Road, following a protracted illness. He was 74.Dominic Nmah Tarpeh was born in Kumasi, Ghana on October 14, 1944 to the union of Mr. Anthony Nyepan Tarpeh and Madam Fannon Belloh. They were part of the sizeable number of Kru people that migrated to the then Gold Coast in the early part of the 20th century. Dominic and his younger brother James N. Tarpeh obtained their early education at a Catholic middle school in Accra, following the completion of which their father sent them to Liberia, at the invitation of one of their uncles working in Sanniquellie, Nimba County. Dominic and his brother enrolled in the Sanniquellie Central High School, where Dominic obtained his high school diploma. As top of his class, he won the W.V.S. Tubman scholarship awarded to all valedictorians and salutatorians throughout the country. That led Dominic to Cuttington College and Divinity School (now Cuttington University), where obtained the Bachelor of Arts degree.Leaving Cuttington where he did so well, Dominic was awarded a fellowship by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), to study Public Administration, obtaining the Master’s and doctorate degrees. He returned home and became part of the group of young people that founded the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA).In 1972 while doing the first part of his graduate work at University of Pittsburg, Dominic met and befriended a beautiful young lady from Trinidad and Tobago (the West Indies), named Verda Lopez. They were married on July 28 that same year and the marriage was blessed with three children — two daughters and a son.During the war Dominic and his family he settled in Ghana, where he soon found employment with the Association of African Universities.

There he was appointed Vice President for Administration and later as Chairman of the UL Board of Trustees.He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, Mrs. Verda Tarpeh, daughters Dwede and Tele Tarpeh, son Dominic, Jr. and a host of family and friends.His remains are presently deposited at the Samuel Stryker Funeral Parlor.

Deonarine Bhikhari, who was arrested 18 years after he allegedly murdered Daniel Singh of Enmore, East Coast Demerara (ECD), is expected to be arraigned today at the Vigilance Magistrate’s Court.Bhikhari was arrested on Sunday last at Logwood, Enmore, ECD, by ranks of C Division (East Coast Demerara) for the heinous crime he allegedly committed in 2000. The Police ranks were reportedly acting on information received by people in the community about his whereabouts.Forty-nine-year-old Daniel Singh, a single father, was living at Hope West, Enmore, ECD with his four children when the incident took place on May 21, 2000.Guyana Times understands that Singh and Bhikhari usually had confrontations, since the suspect and Singh’s daughter, Nalini, had reportedly liked each other but Singh did not approve of this. At the time, the suspect was in his 30s while the young woman was in her late teens. It is, however, unclear what might have triggered Bhikhari’s actions on the day in question.It was reported that Singh was on his front step when he was allegedly attacked by the cutlass wielding suspect, who also killed three of the family’s dogs, injured another, as well as Nalini during the brutal attack.One of Singh’s then young sons had recalled being awakened by his sister’s screams, and upon looking through the window, he saw the attacker firing chops at his father. At the time, the daughter was shouting at the suspect, asking him what he was doing to her father. The man reportedly then turned his attention to her, also inflicting chops to both of her hands. She managed to escape, seeking refuge in a neighbour’s yard.Meanwhile, two of Singh’s young sons were standing in shock watching helplessly as their unconscious father lay bleeding on the ground. Upon noticing that the attacker was charging towards them, the two young boys ran into the bedroom and locked the door.After realising that he was unable to get the door open, the man reportedly left the yard by scaling the back fence and making good his escape, going into hiding for over a decade.Singh’s badly injured body was picked up by neighbours who were awakened by screams and rushed to the hospital where he was admitted and subsequently died a few days later without regaining consciousness.One of Singh’s now adult sons, Deochand, told Guyana Times that he had been trailing the suspect for several months and had even put out a reward for information that can lead to his apprehension.Deochand, a Councillor at the Hope Neighbourhood Democratic Council, claimed that his father’s killer was never apprehended since he had connections with key members of the then Government, who allegedly had facilitated his escape to neighbouring Venezuela. However, he related that the man returned to Guyana a few years ago because of the crisis in that neighbouring country.According to Deochand, after he had seen Bhikhari at a funeral a few months ago, he began to collect information and found out that he was staying at his sister’s house at Logwood. Deochand then contacted his attorney, and they accompanied Police ranks from the Enmore station to make the arrest.Earlier in the week, it was reported that the Police were experiencing difficulties locating the necessary records that were taken at the time when the incident occurred.

ENTERTAINMENT: With only days left to go now, tickets are selling like hot-cakes for Letterkenny Musical Society’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar in An Grianán Theatre (March 1-5) with this year’s show promising to be one of the group’s best ever.That’s no mean feat considering Letterkenny Musical Society is famed for its shows of absolute quality, packed with stellar performances, but with Director Billy Patterson set to step away from his role after this year’s show, they have pulled out all the stops to really make this one to remember. Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera with the apostle Judas as one of its central characters.That’s a role played to perfection by the incredibly talented Giles Murray, who, in recent years, wowed audiences as Wild Bill in Calamity Jane and Nathan Detroit in Guys andDolls.The character of Jesus is played by Kieran Connor from Derry who fits his role so well that even his fellow cast members are constantly in awe.“He sings the role so beautifully that when he finishes singing at rehearsals the rest of the cast applaud, he is that good,” show Director Billy Patterson said in an interview last week. In the same interview, the Director was at pains to point out the sheer depth of talent there is available in the area when it comes to putting on a show like this.That’s highlighted again in the casting of Ciara Gallagher in the role of Mary Magdalene.Ciara, who took the lead as Audrey in last year’s production of ‘Little Shop of Horrors,’ demonstrates her versatility and ability with a powerfully moving performance that will surely tug at the heart strings of the An Grianán audience.Local chef Martin Anderson takes to the stage as well and a tastier role could never have been cooked up for him than that of King Herod, who brings a moment of light-hearted frivolity to a show that takes the audience on a roller-coaster emotional ride.The real strength of the Letterkenny Musical Society however comes from the depth of talent at its disposal for the entire show, not just for the main parts and this year’s production has an ocean of talent at its disposal.Supporting roles come from Donal Kavanagh (Caiaphas), David Walsh (Peter), Mark Leonard (Annas), Niall McDonagh (Simon Zealotes) Chris Duddy (Pontius Pilate) and a large ensemble of male and female characters, while the breath-taking music this year is under the watchful eye of musical director Mark Bradley. Produced by Noel O’Donnell and Directed by Billy Patterson, the Choreography is by Rebecca Thompson, while the ever-vigilant Margaret Hartle and her team makes sure everything backstage runs like clockwork.Jesus Christ Superstar will open on Tuesday night, running to Saturday when there will also be a matinee performance.Tickets are on sale at the box office at An Grianán, but some shows are already sold out and the rest are expected to follow before the curtain opens on Tuesday night.TICKETS SELLING FAST FOR JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR AT AN GRIANÁN THEATRE was last modified: February 24th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:An Grianan TheatreJesus Christ SuperstarLetterkenny Musical Societytickets
