STETHS look to rebound against Newell

first_imgWestern Bureau:Derailed in their last game out on Tuesday in a 1-0 loss to BB Coke, St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) will be seeking a return to winning ways in the ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup, when they host Newell High in Santa Cruz.STETHS are in an unfamiliar position, fourth in Group E and need a win to recover lost ground to leaders Lacovia High (10 points). BB Coke, with that stunning win over STETHS on Tuesday, are on seven points and second in Group E, with the former champions locked on four points with Maggotty High.Newell are languishing at the foot of the table and should be easy pickings, but a guarded Omar Wedderburn, the STETHS coach, knows full well that it’s a tough group and nothing can be taken for granted.”As I keep saying, it is a very competitive group and we will just have to raise our game and play a high level of football,” Wedderburn said.Lacovia, meanwhile, will host Munro with the hope of extending their lead. Munro are on four points, after picking up a first win of the campaign 2-1 over Newell in Tuesday’s round, and BB Coke’s new-found confidence will be tested when they tackle Maggotty.undefeated teamsPetersfield High are sailing away in Group D with nine points and are odds-on favourites to defeat Little London today. Godfrey Stewart, now second in the group, should also take full points at Maud McLeod’s expense.Manchester High remain one of a handful of undefeated teams and could easily make it five wins in five matches when they travel to Winston Jones High in Group F. They sit nicely on 12 points. Their opponents, Winston Jones, are in last place on a single point.Still in Group F, second place team Mile Gully (seven points) will have second-from-bottom Belair as guests, while fourth meets third in DeCarteret College and Cross Keys.Over in Group J, Islington High (10 points) put their unbeaten record on the line against Tacky High.

Minister says charges neither exorbitant nor burdensome

first_imgMMA/ADA rent increase…Govt urged to remove rent, other charges applicable to rice farmersPurportedly in the best interest of the nation, the parliamentary Opposition has moved a motion in the National Assembly calling on Government to reverse the new increased fees for land, drainage and other services imposed on rice farmers in the Mahaica/Mahaicony/Abary Agricultural Development Authority (MMA/ADA) Scheme.In moving the motion, Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) Member of Parliament (MP) Dharamkumar Seeraj said the rice industry has been under severe pressure over the past year, and the imposition of these new fees would only add to the hardships already being experienced by farmers.Incidentally head of the Guyana Rice Producers’ Association (GRPA), Seeraj revealed that rice farmers in the MMA/ADA Scheme will now have to pay $15,000 per acre of land, whereas in 2016 they paid $3,500 for land rental and drainage and irrigation charges.He argued that the decision taken by Government is unconscionable and not meant to assist farmers to extricate themselves from the plight they currently face. Instead, he believes, the new charges would place greater burdens on many rice farmers.“We brought this motion, sir, so all of us in this National Assembly and outside could debate on this matter and reverse the increase imposed by the Minister of Agriculture. It is very unpopular among the farming community across the divide. It does not make economic sense to increase taxation on a sector that is going through a hard time,” Seeraj lamented.The GRPA head also criticized Government for the position it has taken. He explained that when the rice sector began experiencing difficulty in 2015 and witnessed a decline in prices, the Opposition had recommended that payments of land leases and drainage and irrigation charges be suspended.Shortly after the motion was moved, Agriculture Minister Noel Holder made his contribution to the debate; and in addressing the issue of land rental charges, said that under no circumstance could the new charges be considered “exorbitant” or presenting “a burden on stakeholders.”“The total of drainage and irrigation (D&I) and land rental charges per acre in the MMA area range from $15,000 per annum ($1,250 per month) to $12,000 per annum ($1,000 per month) for rice lands; and between $9,400 per annum ($783 per month) and $6,400 per annum ($583 per month) for pasturage,” he explained.With the cost of land rental and D&I charges being less than 10 percent of average income per acre per annum, he explained, the fees could not possibly be burdensome on any farmer.“But perhaps, Mr. Speaker, the main concern regarding the increase in D&I and land rental charges might be due to the lobbying of those who are involved in the illegal practice of sub-letting of leased lands in the MMA area,” he told the National Assembly.Citing the State Lands Act Chapter 62:01 in accordance with the MMA/ADA Act No 27 of 1977, Holder reminded: “The lessee shall not sub-let, assign, or give possession of the land hereby leased, or any other part thereof, without the previous written consent of the lessor.”He said the situation on the ground is different, because while the authority has on record only one instance of authorized sub-letting, the incidence of this practice might be quite common in the area, at a rental of $8,000 per acre per crop, or $16,000 per annum.The increase in the fees to $15,000 per annum will severely compromise the illegal returns from this practice, according to the Agriculture Minister. “It does, however, indicate that bona fide farmers are quite content in paying D&I rates and land rental in excess of those instituted,” he emphasised.In providing a breakdown of the new drainage and irrigation charges, Holder said those could not be considered onerous. “Some people might consider such monthly charges for one acre of land – the equivalent of 8 full house lots or 16 half-lots, as obtains in our capital city of Georgetown — as ridiculously low.” The new D&I charges for land in the Abary/Berbice area – which receives flood control, primary drainage and irrigation; secondary drainage and irrigation; and primary and secondary access services — range from $8,000 per annum ($666 per month) to $1,000 per annum ($83 per month) based on the location, Holder explained. Land in the Mahaicony/Abary Block – which receives flood control, dual purpose D&I services and primary and secondary access services — range between $7,000 annually ($583 per month) and $2,500 per annum ($208 per month) based on location.Land in the Mahaica/Mahaicony area – which receive from the Authority flood control, dual purpose D&I, and primary and secondary access services — attract D&I charges of $5,000 per annum ($416 per month), he detailed.Following a lengthy heated debate inthe National Assembly Government used its one seat majority to defete the PPP/C’s motion.last_img read more

ExxonMobil, stakeholders participate in oil spill response training

first_imgMore than 100 persons have participated in emergency response training organised by ExxonMobil Guyana as part of its continued efforts to prepare for an oil spill.A section of the training activities on the emergency response to an oil spillThe two-day activity followed extensive training on the Incident Command System and included representatives from State bodies such as the Civil Defence Commission (CDC); the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Maritime Administration Department (MARAD).ExxonMobil Guyana Production Manager Mike Ryan explained that the intent was to ensure the teams were mobilised rapidly and as safely as possible to minimise any impact to the environment.“We’ve designed our facilities to make sure the oil remains where it is supposed to be – in the pipes and in the tanks. But we train really hard; we practise really hard, that in the unlikely event that something happens, we’re ready to go,” he further explained.Ryan said that he was pleased about the participation of key Government stakeholders. “We are learning a lot from each other. We must make sure we fully understand the roles of all agencies in Guyana, looking at all these scenarios so that we can act promptly and minimise impact.”Meanwhile, CDC Director, Lieutenant Colonel Kester Craig indicated that activities, such as this, were complementary to the national response plan. “There may be gaps and the exercise will definitely help us to put things together. You cannot wait until there’s an event to test your plan,” he posited.This particular exercise brought in expertise from abroad through ExxonMobil’s regional response team, working alongside the local team and agencies.last_img read more

A hole on the resume

first_img“I said, `You got yours, finally. Now it’s time for me to go get my Super Bowl.”‘ That’s Sunday’s Daytona 500. But Stewart, whose best finish was second in 2004, has been the guy to beat before. “I’m excited where we are starting the race,” said Stewart, who will start third, on the inside of the second row in the 43-car field. “Having had the best car in the past and not being able to finish it off kind of leads me to think it’s one lap at a time for 200 laps on Sunday.” And he insists he would give every Daytona win for just one 500 victory. “I feel like this is the best opportunity that we’ve had so far to win the 500,” Stewart said. “This is definitely the most momentum we’ve had going into it.” Stewart just missed making NASCAR’s 10-man Chase for the Championship last year, but won three of the 10 Chase events. Over the winter, he won a pair of midget races in Fort Wayne, Ind., and the sprint car Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Okla. Even crew chief Greg Zipadelli, who has been with Stewart since he came to Cup in 1999, is whispering in his driver’s ear about how this could be the year. “I’m superstitious about everything, and I kind of feel, the way things are lining up, like maybe we’ll have the opportunity to get it done this year,” Stewart said. A native of Indiana, Stewart started in open-wheel racing but never won his beloved Indianapolis 500 before moving to stock cars. In August 2005, he finally got to kiss the strip of bricks at the Indy finish line after winning the Brickyard race. That was a watershed moment, but the overwhelming satisfaction didn’t last as long as he thought it would. “I’m very goal-oriented,” Stewart explained. “I said the weight of the world was off my shoulders when I won the Brickyard, and I thought, `All right, I can die happy.’ Then I thought, `Now I’ve got to win Daytona.’ “And, if I win Daytona, I haven’t won a race yet at Darlington, Talladega, Vegas and California. It’s getting those other four tracks and being the only guy who has won on all the tracks we run on. That would be cool.” Stewart shut his eyes, rubbed his stubble of beard and leaned back, thinking for a moment. “But then Indy will come back into play,” he added. “There’s always going to be something. I’ll never be satisfied. “So don’t think that even if I win Daytona and I go on and win California and Darlington and Vegas and Talladega this year that I’ll be satisfied. I will be, but then I’ll be wanting to win a third championship and catch Jeff at 75 wins and all of that.” First things first, though. “I can’t even think about that other stuff if I don’t win Daytona,” he said. “I hope this is the year.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The two-time NASCAR champion is 0-for-8 in the race that every NASCAR driver wants, and one that has been very tough – or impossible – for some of the sport’s biggest names to win. It took the late Dale Earnhardt 20 tries, while Darrell Waltrip finally got to Victory Circle in his 17th attempt. Rusty Wallace never won it, and Mark Martin will get his 22nd try Sunday. Stewart already has 10 victories on Daytona International Speedway’s 21/2-mile oval, including the non-points Budweiser Shootout last Saturday and his 150-mile qualifying race Thursday. This week’s victories – and the ease with which he got them – have made Stewart the heavy favorite to win. Three-time 500 winner Jeff Gordon, who won Thursday’s other qualifying race, agreed. “He looks like he’s just been hooked up,” Gordon said. “The thing is, you need a great car, a little luck and a lot of confidence to win this race. It looks like Tony has all of that right now.” center_img As Tony Stewart sat in front of a TV watching the Indianapolis Colts celebrate their Super Bowl victory, he thought about the burden lifted from quarterback Peyton Manning. “I sent him a text message right after the game was over,” Stewart recalled. last_img read more

Conflict rules to be weighed

first_imgWest Covina Councilman Steve Herfert ridiculed Hernandez’s idea as a waste of time. “It’s ridiculous to me,” Herfert. “We’re already governed by state law.” The proposal seems to target Mayor Mike Touhey, who at one time worked for the McIntyre Cos., a developer with several projects in West Covina. A McIntyre proposal to build a 20-unit condominium project on South Sunset Avenue has met with vocal opposition from several neighborhood groups. Touhey recused himself from a vote on the project. The balance of the council voted 3-1, with Hernandez as the lone dissenter, to go ahead. Subsequently, that vote has been revisited as the developer and residents are negotiating some changes, officials said. “This is \ attack this week,” Touhey said. “He targeted me in 2003 and said my clients couldn’t work in the city of West Covina, and now he’s saying my clients can’t work anywhere. I guess now I’ll have to go to work in Canada and Mexico.” In his e-mail, Hernandez defended his plan. “I am confident that this proposal has the public’s support as many residents have expressed strong concerns about certain companies with financial and political ties to the council repeatedly benefitting from no-bid contracts.” frank.girardot@sgvn.com (626) 862-8811 Ext. 2717 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgIs Transition Year worthwhile? Kate Haley from Loreto Community School in Milford has spent a few weeks working for donegaldaily.com. Here she answers the burning question and asks her classmates what they think……Transition Year, what’s it all about? Do students actually get anything out of a year spent away from stress of exams or does it just make them lazy? A year for development or just a year of dossing… Donegal Daily gets Transition Year students from Loreto Milford’s side of the story. TY student Kate gives her view on the matter. ‘I can only tell you about my experience of TY, it’s not the same for everyone but I think Transition Year is more than just worthwhile. The things I’ve got to experience have been amazing. All the competitions we’ve got to do and the trips we’ve got to go on were class craic. I’ve have made friends from all corners of Ireland. Work experience has been a real eye opener too and it’s really good to know what different jobs are like out in the real world. Of course it goes without saying that working for donegaldaily.com was incredible. I would 100% recommend it to any student considering doing it and it’s defiantly not a doss year!’Meadhbh has her say ‘I think honestly Transition Year is as good as you make it! If you do nothing the whole year it’s going to be boring apart from the trips but if you enter all the competitions that are open to you it will make the year a whole lot more interesting and worth while. TY isn’t for everybody so I guess you just have to make the decision for yourself.’Eilis tells us of her experience ‘I think TY is totally worth it, I think the people who get involved in all the competitions and all the extra curricular activities get the most out of it. It is definitely not a doss year if you take part in all the activities. I loved TY!’Ciara says ‘It’s a good year and I would recommend that any self-motivated student should do it because it gives you the chance to mature and experience new things before going into the senior cycle. Personally for me it was a brilliant experience as I felt I needed a break from all the studying and books but believe me TY is no doss year! I got involved in as many activities as I could and I feel this has really helped me improve my confidence and independent learning skills. TY gives you a taste of the working world outside of school and statistically people who’ve done TY do better in there Leaving Cert then those who go on from Junior Cert. TY was totally worth it and I would undoubtedly do it again if I could.’ Heather thinks, ‘If you keep busy in TY, then it is really fun and worthwhile but if you don’t get involved in the activities then it can be really boring. I think if you don’t think you’d be bothered working in TY and you’re just taking it to doss then don’t do TY. You’re just wasting another year of your life in school! So if you’re going to do TY and you want to make it worthwhile then get stuck into everything going. You’ll have a class time and learn loads rather than dossing and being bored for the rest of term.’Kieran advises, ‘TY has its ups and downs and it’s not for everyone! It can be class craic and other times it can seem really pointless. I loved TY because we did so many things and we were involved in loads of competitions so we got to meet a lot of different people. I think if you’re considering doing TY then just go for it! It’s really made me a lot more confident then I used to be and on the whole it was an amazing experience.’There we have it. It would seem that Transition Year is what you make of it. So make it an amazing year by doing amazing things and giving everything a go. And who ever said it was a doss, not to these TY’s that’s for sure!   IS TRANSITION YEAR WORTHWHILE?
