first_imgThis is a Huddle Up dealing with a couple things I like and dislike about the current world of sports. First the likes.  I like the way the powers to be have increased the emphasis on safety in sports, and secondly, I like the number of venues now available to young kids for their first experiences at sports.On the other side of the coin, I not only dislike what AAU is doing to sports, but I fear for the future of high school sports because of it.  My second big dislike in sports is the way high school athletes are being forced to choose one sport as a freshman in the hopes that they will just concentrate on that one.  Some systems at the high school level require so much of an athlete’s time that they are not able to play a second sport and still maintain their grades.  There will be more about this in a later Huddle Up.last_img read more

Daniel Dee Ziankhan as Chief of Staff, and Col. Eric Dennis as Deputy Chief of Staff.The newly nominated Chief of Staff is currently Brigade Commander of the AFL. If confirmed by the Liberian Senate, Col, Ziankhan will replace the Nigerian Command Officer-in-Charge, Major General Suraj Alao Abdurrahman.The nominations were made in keeping with Article 54, Section E, of the Liberian Constitution which authorizes the President to nominate and, with the consent of the Senate, appoint and commission members of the military from the rank of Lieutenant or equivalent and above.In a letter addressed to the Liberian Senate, President Sirleaf said the officers have met all the requirements necessary, including advance and strategic training at various military institutions, and their deportment and discipline have been highly commended by the country’s international partners involved in restructuring of the AFL. “They have my full confidence,” the President stated in the letter.President Sirleaf had, during her Annual Message delivery on January 27, 2014 that in my last year’s Annual Message: “I indicated that we would, at the 2014 Armed Forces Day Celebration, install a Liberian Army Chief of Staff. Having consulted the relevant committees and your good selves, we have officially nominated, for confirmation by the Honorable Senate, the Chief of Staff, the Deputy Chief of Staff and the Brigade Commander, all of whom, if confirmed, would be installed in these positions on February 11, Armed Forces Day.
