Ricks Keller won the second prize of the Pro-Am Holiday tournament by two over par (score of 71). And Victor Gailah came third by getting six over par (score of 75). The second place winner took away a cash prize US$ 1,000, while the third place winner walked away US$ 750.
Francis Thorstien and Akoi Flomo tied on score 79, and therefore went for the sudden death in order to get the fourth and fifth place winners.
However, Thorstien  won the fourth position by a par (score of 4) and  Akoi came fifth by a bogie (scored 5).
The fourth and fifth winners also took away US$ 500 and US$ 400 respectively.
Robert Borbor also finished sixth by beating Tamba Johnson in the sudden death after the pair tied on 80. The sixth place winner, Borbor took away US$300.
Also in the amateur category, Leetor Flomo won the first prize, while Edwin Flomo and Alex Joseph won the second and third prize respectively.
In a chat with reporters following the tournament, the winner of the professional category, David Gwee, lauded RMA-Liberia for organizing the tournament.
According to him, winning the tournament's highest honor was not a surprise because he trained for it.
Meanwhile, all of the 35 players in both categories failed to get the brand new Chery Tiggo Vehicle. They all failed to stroke straight into hole  #4 which is 167 yards away.

Prosperity for Many or Misery for All? I

In just over a week, world leaders will gather in Brazil for the Rio +20 Summit to decide what kind of future we want. Twenty years after the original earth summit, the theme is the green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication.

Why is the conference important and why the aspirations for a 'green economy'? A green economy is one that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. Growth in a green economy is driven by investments that reduce pressures on the environment and the services it provides us, while enhancing energy and resource efficiency.

Tom Kamara’s Demise Great Loss to Journa

On the morning of Friday, June 8, Liberians woke up to news that one of the country’s best   journalists, Tom Kamara had passed away in Brussels, Holland following a brief illness. The death of Mr. Kamara, Publisher of the New Democrat Newspaper came as a shock to all because no one heard about his illness. I am saddened by Mr. Kamara’s demise because it leaves many questions unanswered. Tom’s demise is a great loss to the journalism profession because he brought honor and dignity to the profession in Liberia. He was uncompromising and never bent the rules to accommodate or appease anybody. His critical but well-researched publications endeared him to critical thinkers and people who respect objectivism. While his critical articles and commentaries endeared him to many, Tom also made a lot of enemies among people who considered his publications as an affront to them.

Poetry Factory : With O. T. Zeongar


Violence, violence, oh violence-you are an undesirable menace;
Those who cleave onto violence always set despicable precedence,
They count on violence to attain corruptible prominence,
So they most times exhibit irresponsible arrogance.

Unification Day; a day for the demonstration of brotherliness, oneness and unity
A day to cherish and pay to Liberia, this ‘sweet Land of Liberty,’ all the solidarity
A day to be proud of and hold fast onto our singular identity of similarity
A day to trash out our differences in spite of whatever disparity
Yes Unification Day.
