By John BurtonGov. Chris Christie has selected a long involved Republican activist to be the next county clerk. Now it’s up to the state Senate to offer its advice and consent.Christie has tapped Christine Giordano Hanlon, an attorney and vice chairwoman of the Monmouth County Republican Committee, to fill the vacancy when long-serving County Clerk M. Claire retires effective April 1.According to French, Hanlon’s nomination is contingent on the approval of the Senate’s Judiciary Committee. If approved, Hanlon would have to run this November for the clerk’s full five-year term.The judiciary committee was scheduled to convene this week but it was unlikely its members would take up Hanlon’s nomination this quickly, French suspected.“I’m hopeful we can get her nomination approved by the judiciary as soon as possible,” French said.Hanlon, an Ocean Township resident, has been a practicing lawyer for more than 20 years. She currently works for the Archer and Greiner law firm’s Red Bank office, where she focuses on municipal law and civil litigation.Hanlon is also a Republican state committeewoman representing Monmouth County and in 2009 she served on Christie’s transition team for the attorney general’s office. She was the Monmouth County campaign coordinator for Christie on his first run for governor in 2009 and had been the county coordinator for the McCain-Palin GOP ticket in 2008. She has been on the Monmouth County Board of Elections for approximately five years.“She’s a very hard worker and a very capable person,” Thomas Szymanski, executive director for the county Republican committee, said of Hanlon this week.“I’m very honored to have been nominated for this position by Gov. Christie,” Hanlon said on Tuesday. “It’s a very exciting opportunity.”It was with her work with the board of elections that French said she has gotten to know Hanlon, calling her “an expert on election issues.”“And that is a great help in this job,” French maintained.That and her legal background has given Hanlon “a good amount of experience to fill the role,” Hanlon noted. “I can only hope to live up to the standard of excellence that Claire has set,” she added, tipping her hat to the current clerk.The county clerk’s office has responsibilities over recording all property records; oversees the county archives division, for the large collection of public documents, some of which date back to the 17th century; the county passport division, assisting county residents in obtaining their passports; and administering the elections division, requiring the office to prepare ballots, process vote-by-mail applications, tabulate vote totals and certify county results for the New Jersey Secretary of State.Hanlon, in 2012, had unsuccessfully challenged then county GOP chairman John O. Bennett, losing to the former state senator by a very narrow margin. When Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden won the chairmanship from Bennett in 2014, Golden named Hanlon as one of his four vice chairs, dividing the county into sections.French last month announced she would be retiring before finishing her fourth, five-year term, holding the position for 18 years.
By The Nelson Daily SportsThursday, on Senior’s Night at the Hangar, the seniors game out to play.Graduating point guard Sarah Fuhr dropped in 25 points to lead the L.V. Rogers Bombers to a narrow 61-58 victory over Grand Forks Wolves in Kootenay High School AA Girl’s League action.In the later tilt, senior power forward Clay Rickaby checked in with 22 points to spark the Bombers to a 78-56 win over the Wolves in Kootenay High School AA Boy’s League play.“Wow, was that ever close,” said Bomber coach Bruce Fuhr, watching his squad rally from a 27-22 half time deficit to edge the Wolves.“Our pressure really turned this game around for us. And it didn’t matter how tired the girls got, they still wanted to press.”The difference came in the third quarter. Trailing by five at recess, LVR out scored the Wolves 23-13 in the third period to grab a 45-39 lead. At one point the Bombers went on a 13-0 run.However, the Bombers came close to running out of gas down the stretch. After star center Rachael Moulson fouled out, Grand Forks took advantage of its size advantage in the paint to pound the ball inside. Keyed by the strong inside play of Amanda Thate and Maya Wold, Grand Forks cut the margin to 59-58. But Kyndle Doolan connected on a long field goal to ice the game for LVR.Doolan finished the game with 14 points while Moulson added 13, while playing outstanding defence on Thate.For the Wolves Thate had 26 while Wold added 13.Prior to the start of the boy’s game, seniors Sarah Fuhr, Rachael Moulson, Emily Klapstein, Kyndle Doolan and pretend senior Kiandra McLaren were honoured during a brief ceremony.Rickaby, D’Andrea help Bombers tame Wolves.Clay Rickaby scored 22 points to spark the Bombers to past Grand Forks Kootenay High School AA Boy’s League play.Rickaby, playing his final home game in the Hangar, was the recipient of many inside feeds from longtime teammate Jason D’Andrea. The Bombers, using a balanced scoring attack, increased its lead after every quarter en route to the win.D’Andrea scored 15 points while Grade 11 center Adam Grace had 12 points, all in the second half.John Zak had a strong game shooting, finishing with 22.Replying for the Wolves were Mitchell 19 points.Seniors Jason D’Andrea, Clay Rickaby, Maverick Seed and David Chen were honoured at prior to the game.

Harry Redknapp will rest a number of first-team players for this afternoon’s FA Cup fourth-round meeting with League One side MK Dons.The QPR boss plans to make several changes ahead of vital home league matches against champions Manchester City and fellow strugglers Norwich.“I have got to make some changes, with Man City coming on Tuesday and Norwich on Saturday,” he said.“I need to shuffle the pack. I can’t afford to risk all the players. The squad will get a chance.“No disrespect, we’re playing MK Dons – they’re a good side, I’m seen them this year – but whichever team we put out I should have a squad here capable of beating them.“If they can’t beat MK Dons then we’ve got a problem with the rest of our squad. We should be able to beat them.”Esteban Granero and Armand Traore are fit again after injuries but Loic Remy has a hamstring problem, Junior Hoilett remains sidelined and Ryan Nelsen is not being considered for today’s game.Click here for our QPR v MK Dons 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight LATEST STORIES Though San Sebastian evened its standing at 6-6, it should find a way to be more consistent if it wants to break its three-year Final Four drought this season.And the only solution for that to happen is for guys like Navarro to churn out solid numbers to compliment the stable showing of Michael Calisaan.5. Rey Nambatac – G, Letran Knights19.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.5 assistsLast Week: N/AOnce again, Rey Nambatac showed that he can be a threat for Letran with or without the ball.The senior guard allowed his teammates to shine in the Knights’ 84-73 win over Arellano on Tuesday.But with Letran seeking revenge against first round tormentor Mapua, Nambatac exploded for 17 first half points to steer his side to an 88-79 victory, enough for it to once again get itself in the conversation as one of the favorites to snare those last two spots.6. Kent Salado – G, Arellano Chiefs23.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.5 stealsLast Week: 6For the third straight week, Kent Salado has found himself still at the sixth spot of this list.That’s what you get after another even week despite another solid showing.Salado’s numbers weren’t enough for Arellano to pull off a triumph against Letran on Tuesday, losing 73-84, but with Michael Cañete providing the much needed support, the Chiefs halted their two-game slide on Friday and remained alive in the playoff race. CJ Perez remains a force to be reckoned with for Lyceum, and his greatness is underscored with his supporting cast also delivering.The energetic forward showed that there’s no such thing as a second round slump for him, getting his bearings back to do it all for the Pirates in their 94-83 win over Perpetual.Lyceum may have clinched a twice-to-beat in the Final Four, but Perez knows there the tougher wars still ahead and their 13-0 record won’t mean nothing if the Pirates don’t get the job done in the playoffs.3. Javee Mocon – F, San Beda Red Lions19 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assistsLast Week: 2Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netJust like Perez for Lyceum, Javee Mocon’s performance was once again the catalyst in helping San Beda notch its 11th straight victory.The hardworking forward’s performance should largely be credited in keeping the Red Lions in the thick of things, especially after their gritty 65-60 victory over JRU on Friday.But Mocon shouldn’t be alone in hoisting the flag for the Mendiola crew, and coach Boyet Fernandez needs Robert Bolick to rekindle his thunder if San Beda dreams of retaining its NCAA title again later this season.4. Renzo Navarro – G, San Sebastian Golden Stags16 points (5/6 3PT), 3 assistsLast Week: N/ARenzo Navarro. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netThe littlest man of the court once again made the biggest impact in the clutch for San Sebastian as Renzo Navarro took the spotlight for his side.The diminutive guard waxed hot from downtown, going on a near-perfect clip as he unfurled 12 of his 16 points to aid the Golden Stags nab the huge 73-61 win over St. Benilde. Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients Just when you thought there’d finally be some clarity in the NCAA, the Final Four race just got more muddled.Pacesetters Lyceum and San Beda have now clinched their respective seats in the semifinals, while cellar dweller Mapua has been the first team to get the boot in the tourney.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBut the seven other teams still have a crack at the last two spots, with a bounce here and a run there potentially deciding who will make it to the next round.Before that, let’s first take a loot at this week’s best seven players in the NCAA.1. Bong Quinto – F, Letran Knights21.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.5 assistsLast Week: N/A Steady is the word for Bong Quinto.The stocky scorer has kept the ship afloat for Letran as it got itself back on track, snapping its three-game losing skid and forcing a third place tie with JRU.Coach Jeff Napa said that the Knights have finally addressed their issues after that funk, and with Quinto being one of the team’s leaders, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if they secure one of those elusive Final Four seats sooner than later.2. CJ Perez – F, Lyceum Pirates21 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 stealsLast Week: N/AADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity. Ricafort eager to bring energy, help motivate Maroons Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa View comments With the collegiate season in full swing, INQUIRER lists the week’s top seven performers in the ongoing NCAA Season 93 men’s basketball tournament. From their game statistics to their overall impact in the outcomes, everything is weighed to come up with the best players from the week that was.ADVERTISEMENT At 5-8, Arellano is still just two games behind in the Final Four, but the Chiefs must step up in their next games if they want to make it to the postseason.7. Sidney Onwubere – F, EAC Generals19.0 points, 9.5 reboundsLast Week: N/AEAC remained in the running in the Final Four race, but could not extend its streak to three after suffering an 84-79 defeat to Arellano on Friday.But that wasn’t because Sidney Onwubere didn’t fight for the Generals, as the senior forward gave everything for his side.Still, EAC’s performance should be lauded given that it’s playing without its starting frontcourt, and coach Ariel Sison made it clear that the Generals will go for broke to reach its goal of making it to the Final Four.

Washington DC — Morocco needs a new powerful framework to overcome recent public relations setbacks in its never ending cold war with Algeria over the “Western Sahara.”The time is ripe for Rabat to engage the underlying political and diplomatic preconceptions that led to a patchy Sahara policy. The key to a viable strategy in the Southern provinces rests with the creation of a “war room” that would incorporate different intelligence agencies and all Ministries, including Interior and foreign affairs, involved in implementing policies in the Sahara. Recent events point to the need for a national strategy to merge domestic, international and economic assessments of the situation in the Sahara into one single vision. Time and time again, domestic and social episodes turned into international incidents. A high level interposition among the competing security and political entities will streamline the “Sahara policy” creating comprehensive international strategies and positive local dynamics. One of the most favorable outcomes of the creation of a “war room” will be the removal of the long-running impediments to a complementary multifaceted strategy in the Southern provinces. Improving the lives of the average Sahrawi is as important as reinforcing the political and diplomatic efforts on the international scene. In creating a sustained income stream for the population based on a strong self-sustained local economy, Morocco will earn international recognition. Events such as Javier Bardem’s showing of an anti-Moroccan movie in Paris, violence during United Nations envoy visits to the Sahara or the upcoming Pro-Algeria activist Haider stay in Washington underscore the need to tighten and streamline Morocco’s response to the Algerian provocations.A decision by a local Interior Minister official in the Sahara could carry several implications on the international scene. As such, close and coordinated efforts between all parties involved in the decision making process in the Provinces is critical to a successful implementation of the “Local Autonomy Plan for the Sahara.” As Rabat casts local autonomy, and not independence, as the only viable resolution to the conflict, Moroccan politicians and officials must elucidate and expound the details of the Moroccan Proposal. Some Parliamentarians and political figures’ lack of knowledge about the aspects of this crucial dossier is shameful. Dumping millions of dollars into lobbying efforts spins attitudes at the international level but doesn’t influence attitudes at the local Saharan level, if only because it gives the impression that Morocco is consolidating its positions. The fact remains, however, pro-Algeria elements are still active in Laayoune while Moroccan diplomats struggle to expose Polisario’s human rights abuses in the Tindouf Camps.Morocco needs to appeal to a rising Sahrawi youth that doesn’t remember the Sahara war and holds very different expectations from government and politicians than their fathers and grandfathers did. To succeed in winning the hearts and minds of all the Sahrawis, Moroccan authorities should rethink some aspects of their Sahara strategy. Unified and sustained security, economic and foreign policies could be the avenue to a successful implementation of the Local Autonomy Plan for the Sahara. Concluding that the diplomatic-lobbying efforts to influence international attitudes are more important than local domestic policies is an oversimplification; in fact, small, targeted assistance programs for young Sahrawi may have more impact on the image of Morocco’s management style in the Sahara. Adopting the two strategies thru the creation of a “war room” would be a plus.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, rewritten or redistributed
