Report on Linden-Lethem road being finalised – Jordan

Posted on by

first_img…says consultations held with Indigenous communitiesThe final report on the Linden-Lethem road, which will contain details coming out of consultations with the Indigenous communities and other important matters, is being finalised, even as construction is expected to start next month.The deplorable condition of the roadDuring a recent interview with the media, Finance Minister Winston Jordan revealed that he recently received a progress report on the project. He noted that experts from the United Kingdom and the Caribbean Infrastructure Partnership Fund (CIF) were here last week.“The UK, CIF people were here last week. And they were giving us a progress report on the grant funding they’re supposed to make available for a part of the road and the bridge across the Essequibo River at Kurupukari”.The Caribbean Development Bank is the implementing agency for UKCIF programme, which was launched with £300 million. As such, Jordan reminded of the role the Caribbean Development Bank is playing in the process.Jordan also referenced the recent announcement from Minister of Public Infrastructure David Patterson that the project would start on October 1, although he was unsure exactly what form that start would take.“As you know, they have been holding consultations with Indigenous communities and so on. What they did was, together with the Caribbean Development Bank, give me a progress report on how far they’re at, some of the challenges and some of the concerns. The consultants are working on finalising the report and after that is the tender stage and so on”.“I know some monies are in the budget. So the start is from mile zero. I don’t know if it’s clearing, surveying or what. But start could mean anything, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll see graders. There’s money in the budget to start the project though,” he added.Patterson had announced last week during a public engagement that the project would get off the ground on October 1. Phase One of the project covers approximately 125 kilometres of the road and also includes a bridge across the Kurupukari Crossing.State of the roadFor some time, drivers utilising the Linden-Lethem Road have been calling on the Public Infrastructure Ministry and the other relevant authorities to quickly rehabilitate a section of the roadway from Mabura Police Station to Kurupukari Crossing, since it is rapidly deteriorating.The drivers have said that the road is almost impassable, resulting in them taking double the amount of time to traverse the area as well as costing them more money in repairs and maintenance of their vehicles. They have noted that several complaints have been made to the Public Infrastructure Ministry but with very little results.Additionally, several persons using the roadway as transportation from Lethem to either Georgetown or Linden for various Government services or even medical treatment have registered their dissatisfaction with the condition of the road.The residents, particularly those of remote Amerindian communities in the Rupununi, would have to use the road as their only means of transportation to travel to the city for medical treatment that is not available within the region, since it is too costly for them to take a flight out.Over the last two years, with the increased use of social media and access to the internet, the road users have taken to various social media platforms to post videos and photos to highlight the struggles of accessing one of Guyana’s newest township.They have been calling on the authorities to have the issues addressed and the road upgraded but to date, there has been very little action in that regard.Last year, Government said that the Linden-Lethem road may be realised under the Belt and Road initiative with the Chinese Government. In late July 2018, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) within the framework of China’s Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road was signed between the Governments of Guyana and China.last_img read more

Speaker rejects PPP motion to amend budget

first_imgUS$18M signing bonus…Jagdeo accuses Speaker of shielding Govt from scrutinyBy Lakhram BhagiratThe Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotland, on Friday denied an Opposition Peoples Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) motion calling for the 2018 Estimates to be amended to reflect the US$18 million signing bonus Government received from US oil giant ExxonMobil.The motion read: “Be it resolved that this Honourable Assembly directs theOpposition Leader, Bharrat JagdeoMinister of Finance to amend the Financial Estimates of Revenues and Expenditures of Guyana to reflect Guyana’s receipt of US$18 (million), and (he be directed) to deposit the said sum of money into the Consolidated Fund, in compliance with the Constitution and laws of Guyana.”The motion was submitted on Thursday night in the name of Opposition Parliamentarian Irfaan Ali, and was seconded by PPP/C Chief Whip Gail Teixeira.The PPP/C motion stated that the Financial Estimates of the Revenues and Expenditures do not reflect Guyana’s receipt of the said sum of US$18 million whatsoever, and the Estimates are therefore understated by the said sum, in violation of the Constitution and the Fiscal Management and Accountability Act; and the Estimates are accordingly unlawful, illegal, unconstitutional, null, void, and of no effect.Consolidated Fund shortchangedIn presenting the motion to the House, the Opposition Leader — who was givenDr Barton Scotlandresponsibility for piloting the motion after Ali was unavoidably absent — said Government admitted to receiving the US$18 million only about seven days ago, after months of denying its existence.“When we examined the Estimates for 2016, 2017 and 2018, those public monies that should have been paid into the Consolidated Fund were not reflected in the Estimates. We therefore ask that the Minister of Finance be directed to amend the Estimates before us to reflect the receipt of US$18 million, which was received and not deposited in the Consolidated Fund, in contravention of the Constitution and the financial laws of Guyana,” Jagdeo said.He told the House that it is the hope of the Opposition that the ruling be favourable, so that the matter can be debated at length, thus providing the public with the necessary information they so deserve.Motion deniedHowever, the Speaker, in his ruling, noted that for the sitting to be adjourned to consider another issue – in this case, the amendment the 2018 Financial Estimates and a call for the Finance Minister to deposit the US$18 million in the Consolidated Fund — the matter must be definite, urgent and of public importance.The Speaker noted that the issue is indeed definite and of great public importance, but he questioned the urgency, since he noted that the issue had come to the fore some seven days prior to the motion. It was on this ground that the Speaker denied the request.Predictable outcomeAt a press conference convened immediately after the denial of the motion, the Opposition Leader deemed the outcome predictable, since, he said, the Speaker is known to shield the Government from a deserving level of scrutiny.“The Standing Orders of Parliament provide for this approach, and we felt that this matter — the matter that has engaged the entire nation’s attention over the last seven days, and has caused much worry to the people; the blatant breaches of our Financial Laws and the Constitution of Guyana — that the Speaker would have been more respectful of the concerns of our people and allow a full debate on this motion, which would have exposed the many inconsistences and illegalities of this Government regarding the signing bonus,” Jagdeo said.Jagdeo added that the motion would have allowed the House, including the Speaker, to have the Estimates amended to reflect “what is legal and Constitutional, so that the Estimates for 2018, when passed, would reflect the true financial picture of Guyana.”Improper handlingThe Opposition Leader stressed that the rules governing the handling of public monies are clear, and public monies cannot be handled in a discretionary manner.He reiterated that if the Estimates are approved in their current state, the House would be knowingly aiding an illegality.A statement read by Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge in the National Assembly on Thursday claimed the US$18 million signing bonus was placed in a Deposit Fund.However, the Opposition Leader said the monies were not placed in a Deposit Fund, but rather in a Special Account, as indicated by both the Finance and Natural Resources ministers. In relation to the Deposit Fund, Jagdeo noted that the Fiscal Management and Accountability Act (FMAA) stipulates that the National Assembly ought to be informed of the source of the funds, the purpose, and the intended investment strategy. He indicated that neither was provided to the House in this case.He also said that no PPP/C MP would have opposed the allocation of the US$15 million required to pay the legal fees to defend Guyana’s territorial integrity.last_img read more

Neymar arrives at hospital for foot operation

Posted on by

first_img0Shares0000Neymar is helped to his feet by Adrien Rabiot during PSG’s win over Marseille on Sunday, in which he suffered a twisted ankle and a hairline metatarsal fracture © AFP/File / GERARD JULIENBelo Horizonte, Brazil, Mar 1 – Brazilian superstar Neymar arrived in hospital Friday for an operation to mend the broken bone in his right foot that has ended his season at Paris Saint-Germain and overshadowed Brazil’s World Cup preparations.The world’s most expensive football player landed late in the evening at Belo Horizonte’s airport, then immediately drove with his entourage to the Mater Dei hospital, AFP reporters said. The procedure was due to take place Saturday, led by Brazilian national team surgeon Rodrigo Lasmar.Lasmar says the fracture of the fifth metatarsal will put Neymar out of action for two and a half to three months. He suffered the injury on February 25 during PSG’s 3-0 defeat of Marseille in Ligue 1.This leaves PSG without the prolific striker — whose transfer from Barcelona cost the club a record 222 million-euro ($264 million) last August — when they face Real Madrid in a make-or-break Champions League clash next Tuesday.There are also jitters in Brazil, where Neymar is a key part in the national side’s hopes of glory at the World Cup in Russia starting in June.Jose Luiz Runco, a former chief medical officer for the Brazilian team, told AFP that the surgery itself “is not difficult.”“It should take about an hour, or 90 minutes maximum,” he said.– Pre-surgery cuddles –Neymar, 26, struck a relaxed pose ahead of his arrival in Belo Horizonte, putting up a picture on Instagram of himself in a wheelchair with his actress girlfriend Bruna Marquezine sitting on his lap and kissing him.The image-conscious PSG star also posted a close-up of his hand, tattooed with a small cross, holding Marquezine’s hand.In the heated atmosphere around the operation, Brazil’s Globoesporte website claimed that Neymar was expected to come by helicopter and had booked a whole wing of the Mater Dei hospital. But a local newspaper reported that he would take a more modest suite measuring around 80 by 40 feet (24 x 12 meters).Staff at the hospital, a tall building with mirrored windows, were put on paparazzi lockdown, with a ban on using their cellphones anywhere near the star. However, an AFP photographer was given access to a room similar to the one Neymar was due to take — a small suite with basic furniture and a second room for the patient.– Silver lining –Neymar arrived in Rio de Janeiro ahead of his Saturday operation © Twitter/AFP / Claire Dornald ClauzelNeymar has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for PSG since arriving. But last Sunday he looked to be in tears as he was stretchered off the field at the Parc des Princes.On Thursday, he arrived back in Brazil, accompanied by Lasmar, who broke the news that the surgery would require a longer than previously expected recovery time.“It’s not a simple fracture, but a fracture in an important bone in the middle of the foot,” Lasmar said.Now Neymar will feel the weight of a nation’s expectations as he races to recuperate in time for the World Cup, where Brazil are seen as having a good chance for winning a sixth title — and eradicating bitter memories of a 7-1 defeat to Germany in the 2014 semi-finals.He’s already sure to miss two warm-up friendlies against Russia and Germany in March.There may, however, be a silver lining in Neymar’s forced absence from competitive games, says Cristiano Nunes, the physio for Brazilian first division club Internacional in Porto Alegre.“When you think how exhausting the European season is, he could even arrive fresher than the others, both physically and emotionally,” Nunes told AFP.“He’ll return with a real desire to play football and to show his potential.”Runco said Neymar will likely be allowed to walk with crutches after two to three weeks, then exercise while putting weight on his repaired foot after 60 to 75 days.The UOL sports website reported that Neymar may recuperate at his residence in Mangaratiba, on the coast of Rio state. The luxury residence has the facilities that would allow the star’s medical team to run a full physiotherapy program, the report said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

On the town

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Tony-award winning singer/actress Kristin Chenoweth headlined the concert, which also featured British thrush Julia Fordham. Fordham nearly stole the show when she teamed with 8-year-old Julia Rossotto on an impromptu duet of “I Want to Stay Home with You.” Also taking turns at the podium were Whitford’s “West Wing” co-stars Allison Janney and Joshua Malina. Peggy Dark’s Kitchen carried out the exotic theme with b’stilla, falafel with hummus; lamb satays; chicken and apricot tagine; saffron couscous; orange, date and watercress salad; roasted eggplant; all topped off with sorbets, chocolate mousse and a birthday cake for Michelle Butler, manager of Tiffany Pasadena who provided the popular raffle prizes: Tiffany blue gift boxes containing a crystal box for every donor – one of which held a blue ceramic box with a $5,000 gold and diamond starfish inside. KNBC-4 anchor Colleen Williams was the lucky winner. It was a love fest for Hollywood’s old and new. The cause, the celebration of a star whose charisma spanned generations, the late Merv Griffin. And how he would have loved it. It not only paid tribute to his career and generosity, but it also celebrated his legacy, the Young Musicians Foundation, an organization that he not only championed, but served as board chairman until shortly before his death last August. The occasion was the 53rd annual gala benefit for the orchestra held at Merv’s old digs, the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Oct. 19. Donanne Kasikci chaired the event, which raised more than $200,000. Griffin’s pal, Pebble Beach neighbor and golfing buddy Clint Eastwood took a brief break from the film set to present a special award to Griffin’s son, Tony, and his family – wife Tricia, son Donovan and daughter Farah. Choking back tears, Tony recalled, “Music was everything to my dad. When he was 4, my great-aunt Claudia taught him to play the piano and from that day forward he played every day of his life. Music had such a huge impact on him that it somehow wove its way through everything he did.” Joining in the tribute were YMF Interim Board Chairman Michael Gleason; Ryan Seacrest; Ty Treadway; Michael Feinstein; Katharine McPhee; violinist Stephanie Yu – winner of the YMF/Merv Griffin Memorial Scholarship; 16-year-old Canadian singer Cody Karey; Mort Lindsey – Griffin’s orchestra leader for more than 20 years – and the YMF Orchestra under the baton of Sean Newhouse, who performed Griffin’s hit “I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts” and Lindsey’s orchestral version of the “Jeopardy” theme. Among those spotted in the audience were YMF Executive Director Edye Rugolo; YMF Music Advisor David Weiss; Kenny G and his son Max; Anne Jeffreys; Ann Rutherford; Catherine Oxenberg and her daughter India; Jane Withers; Jayne Meadows; Jack Carter; Justin Chambers; Freda Payne; Pam Dawber; Laura San Giacomo; Paul Williams; Mitzi Gaynor and Lisa Williams. Charlotte Harrison, past chairwoman of the Huntington Hospital’s Fall Food and Wine event, was honored for her commitment to the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House at the third annual Shine on Monte Carlo Gala held Oct. 6 at Art Center’s South Campus (the Wind Tunnel) in Pasadena. More than 300 guests turned out for the soiree that featured country French cuisine and a showcase of vintage cars. The proceeds, which exceeded $120,000, will help fund “the home away from home” across the street from Huntington Hospital for families coming to Pasadena for advanced medical treatment for their critically or terminally ill children. For aficionados of historic California architecture, the annual Craftsman Weekend sponsored by Pasadena Heritage is a delightful wallow in the genre known as the Arts and Crafts Movement for which Pasadena is renowned. The 16th annual three-day event began Oct. 19 with tours of local Craftsman homes and continued through Oct. 21. A highlight of this year’s event was a Saturday night reception at one of Greene & Greene’s most magnificent residences, the Henry M. and Laurabelle Robinson House built in 1905-06 on the edge of the Arroyo Seco. This palatial masterpiece incorporating Japanese, English and Mission influences has been restored by its current owners, Mark Ledbetter, an electric sign manufacturer, and his multi-talented wife, Phaedra, who designed many of the home’s Craftsman-style appointments. A designer who specializes in food styling and resort photography, Phaedra is also a licensed interior designer, marriage and family therapist, horticultural therapist and is now completing her doctorate in clinical psychology. Following twilight tours of the house and garden with its stunning infinity pool, guests watched the sunset while sampling Chef Jennifer Naylor’s wine and Asian hors d’oeuvres. CELEBRATING MERV SHINE 16th CRAFTSMAN WEEKEND FOOTLIGHTERS Like many old-guard Southland philanthropic groups growing long in the tooth, The Footlighters, who will mark their 70th anniversary next year, have abandoned the lavish black-tie benefit ball format. “The cost of mounting an event like our annual Cabaret Ball and musical revue has become prohibitive,” said Footlighters President Mary Jo Blue. “The plethora of causes competing for the charity dollar, plus the challenge of filling a cavernous ballroom, and, yes, attrition in membership, has resulted in our members having to make dramatic changes in fundraising strategy.” Rather than fold their tent though, the members have launched a variety of small salon-style events to continue support of their philanthropies: the Footlighters Child Life Center at Harbor/UCLA Medical Center, A Place Called Home in South Central L.A. and a new program, Godparents for Youth, which transports children from low-income areas on educational trips out of gang-infested neighborhoods. Their most recent event, A Day at Oak Tree in the Directors Room at Santa Anita Park honoring longtime member Barbara Billingsley (a.k.a. “June Cleaver” of the long-running television series “Leave it to Beaver”), drew a slew of locals. Included were Jean and Dusty Blasiar, Marg Blasiar, Helen and Jerry Stathatos, Bea Stathatos, Dina and Bill Oldknow, Helen Lambros, Eileen and Bill Zimmerman, Beth Lochmueller, Lyn Spector, Shirley McGinley, Louise Bick, Patricia Martin, Joyce Ward and Renee Hanson. “We used to be known as the song and dance girls,” said Blue. “But as the world grows smaller, we’re focusing on broader subjects. We’ve already had a session on the role of women in Islamic; next is a seminar on stem cell research; and after the first of the year, we plan a tour of the Jet Propulsion Lab and some wild-life preserves in Southern California. “We may be the `old guard,”‘ noted Jean Blasiar, who chaired the Oak Tree event. “But we won’t be old hat. We’ve jettisoned the ball gowns and kid gloves – not to mention the taps and tights – but we will never abandon our commitment to our children’s charities.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

More than 200 guests turned out for the glamorous Casablanca-themed evening honoring actress Jane Kaczmarek and her husband, actor Bradley Whitford, for their community activism. The San Marino couple has supported several local philanthropies including the center, a Pasadena-based sanctuary for victims of domestic violence. Established 11 years ago by Kitty Hall, Grace Center is now an affiliate of Five Acres, the 119-year-old child and family services agency that serves abused, neglected and at-risk children. Jane is also the founder of the Clothes Off Our Back Foundation, which auctions celebrity award-show finery to benefit children’s charities. Nicholson, who co-chaired the event along with Marilyn and John Wells and Diane Reed, noted that his shopping spree during a recent trip to Morocco was the inspiration for this year’s event. It raised more than $145,000 for the center’s programs. last_img

Deputy Doherty said “The allegation from the whistleblower today is extremely worrying and needs to be fully investigated by the proper authorities.“If the allegation is substantiated then there needs to be full accountability and the person or persons responsible for misleading the regulator need to face the full consequences of their actions.“It is also deeply worrying that allegations such as this one seem to be continuously missed by the regulator.

THREE YEARS BEHIND BARS FOR PERVERT WHO SHOWED SICK PIX TO 12-YEAR-OLD BOY

Posted on by

first_imgA compulsive paedophile who will be a threat to children for the rest of his life is beginning a three year sentence behind bars tonight after admitting a series of sickening crimes.Patrick Lenihan, from Erne Road in Ballyshannon pleaded guilty to possessing 80 child porn pictures on his phones and of showing some of them to a 12-year-old boy.The 44-year-old has been in custody since last November after he breached bail conditions by writing to a 15-year-old boy to ask for a relationship. Donegal Circuit Court heard medical reports which showed that Linehan, who is originally from London, was attracted to boys aged between ten and fifteen.The offences occurred in October and December 2010 and Lenihan’s home has been attacked several times since.The court heard the paedophile had worked as a first aid volunteer with the Order of Malta in Dublin before moving to Ballyshannon seven years ago.Before the offences were detected he was a frequent visitor to the town’s neighbourhood watch meetings, Gda Martin McCarron told the court.During the first incident Lenihan had gone up to a group of boys in Ballyshannon to show them pictures on his phone. A 12-year-old boy was then asked for sex.These pictures were later found to be horrific images of child sexual abuse which Lenihan had downloaded from the internet.Judge Keenan Johnson said the major problem with the case was that there was nowhere in the prison system where someone like Lenihan could undergo treatment for his paedophilia.The only available prison is at Arbour Hill where treatment is only conducted on a voluntary basis.He sentenced Lenihan to three years in prison and placed him on the sex offenders register for life.THREE YEARS BEHIND BARS FOR PERVERT WHO SHOWED SICK PIX TO 12-YEAR-OLD BOY was last modified: March 28th, 2014 by John2Share 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)last_img read more

Valley girl mauled by pit bulls

Posted on by

first_imgSAN FERNANDO, Calif. (AP) — A pair of pit bulls escaped from their yard and mauled an 11-year-old girl at a nearby school, police said Friday. The 18-year-old owner of the dogs was arrested and held in lieu of $25,000 bail. The girl, whose identity was not immediately released, had a badly bitten left leg and was flown in “pretty serious condition” to Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles, which declined to release her condition. However, the wound was not considered life-threatening, police Chief Anthony Alba said. The dogs then ran back to their yard, which was only a few blocks away, the chief said. The owner, Orlando Vasquez, was arrested for investigation of negligent ownership of vicious animals, he said. “They apparently pushed the gate open. They were not properly secured,” he said. The dogs were taken to an animal shelter and police will recommend that they be destroyed, Alba said. San Fernando is a suburb of Los Angeles.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
