Bartica residents still awaiting better roads

first_imgA mother and her two-month-old baby stumbled to the ground after struggling to traverse a deplorable roadway leading to an Amerindian Hostel, located at Seventh Avenue (between First Street and Third Street), below the Telecoms’ Hill.A section of the road where the deep gully was formedThis is just one of the many painful and dangerous experiences residents have been enduring for months, as the main access road continues to rapidly deteriorate as the relevant authorities take their time to address the issue.The roadway has been in a terrible state for more than four years, and it was only recently that it was upgraded prior to the Local Government Elections (LGE) which was held on March 18.Residents explained that the road was widened and a drain was dug, but it was not properly done.“We asked them to redo the drain as that was supposed to help drain the water so it would not affect the roadway but they didn’t,” one woman related to Guyana Times. Four months ago, residents began to complain of substandard work since the road started to erode significantly. “Don’t get me wrong. We are grateful they did some work as we have been asking for better access for almost five years now and nothing was ever done. However, even though we don’t expect paved roads and concrete drains, time and care should be taken to do a little better job so that the situation does not get worse,” a resident noted.Today, the road has moved from bad to worse, with the formation a deep gully at the side of the trail.And with the rainy season fast-approaching, residents are worried that the situation will only worsen.“Well, like my taxpayers’ money not giving us good service or it ain’t got value. Or maybe we have to send for Uncle David to visit the hostel in this Heritage Month… We need to get better than this, we voted for better, for change, not to exchange one lampy pampy bureaucrat for an even worse one. They probably are going to wait until someone injures themselves badly before any work is done,” one annoyed resident expressed in a Facebook post.Guyana Times was told that a contract was awarded for the rehabilitation of the road and that works should commence within the next two to three weeks.

First class to attend 4 years at school ready to graduate

first_imgCAMARILLO Four years after entering the stucco-and-tile Spanish-revival buildings, Kristi Adame is about to emerge as one of the pioneers. She will graduate in May among the students known as the first four – the first class to complete all four years at California State University, Channel Islands. She also will be the first in her family to graduate from college. “Going to college is a whole new experience in the first place, but being part of a new university allowed me to be a part of the growth and have a say in classes and committees,” said Adame, a 22-year-old psychology major. “On other campuses, I would not have been part of helping to make decisions.” After four full years in operation, the campus known affectionately as Cal State Sushi is entering the big time, with enrollment growing by 500 students a year. Construction is booming, with crews working to expand student housing from 350 beds to 800 by the fall. The John Spoor Broome Library, named for the Ventura County philanthropist who donated $5 million to the project, is expected to be completed this year. Also set for completion is the Towncenter, a mixed-use building with a bookstore, shops and apartments. Last year, the campus erected on the site of the former Camarillo State Hospital received the largest portion of state bond money allocated to the California State University system. About $62 million will be spent retrofitting the nearly 80-year-old buildings to meet seismic standards, building laboratories for a proposed nursing program and erecting a new entryway into the campus. All of this is happening faster than administrators can have the letters CSUCI or the school mascot, a dolphin, silk-screened onto T-shirts and sweat shirts. “Our enrollment has been greater than expected,” said Richard Rush, president of the university. “One of the challenges is getting the facilities ready fast enough to meet the enrollment demands. It’s more expensive to refurbish the buildings than it is to build new ones.” A place with history Ventura County residents lobbied three decades for a four-year public university and seized the opportunity when what had once been the nation’s largest mental institution closed in 1997. Originally created as a satellite of Cal State Northridge, the campus became independent in late 2002. “It obviously has some history,” said Ventura County Supervisor Kathy Long, whose district includes Camarillo and who has worked to bring the university to fruition. “Administrators and the community have tremendous empathy for the history of that site,” she said. “You have to respect the history, but also celebrate the future.” Surrounded by the Santa Monica Mountains and fields of strawberries, cilantro and onions, the campus isn’t expected to expand beyond its perimeters, a concern among some residents before CSUCI had opened, Long said. “Because of our growth voter initiatives, it doesn’t have the ability to become as big as a Cal State Northridge,” Long said. “The full build-out is expected to hold no more than 15,000 students.” And while CSUCI is autonomous from Ventura County, its administration has made a concerted effort to connect to the community, partnering with some 600 local firms to link students with prospective careers in business and biotechnology. Rush said he also receives 10,000 applications from prospective faculty members each year, despite the region’s relatively high housing costs. Recognizing that the real-estate market could be a deterrent, the administration opened University Glen, a community of 900 single-family homes and town homes sold at below-market prices. “The faculty we hire have to have a pioneering vision, to have a sense of programs that have a future,” Rush said. Life’s a beach Despite its name, Cal State Channel Islands is three miles from the nearest beach. And with a student body of just over 3,100 and student-to-instructor ratios of 18-to-1, some students say they feel as if they are attending a small and exclusive university. “I’m happy with everything that’s here,” said Icela Rodriguez, a 20-year-old liberal-arts major from Newbury Park. “I didn’t want to leave home to go to school.” Others said they longed for the university to have a sports team, but in the big picture, that didn’t even matter. “This school has everything I want. It’s close to home, the classes are small and we get that one-on-one attention from professors,” said John Sakla, a 21-year-old business major from Oxnard. “If this school wasn’t here, I’d have to drive far away,” he said. Steve Lapointe, 22, also a business major, said the school boasts a 6-to-1 ratio of females to males. “I definitely like those odds,” he said.

Scotty finds place in space

first_imgWende Doohan, of Renton, Wash., said her husband of 30 years sought a space ride for his remains after “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry’s remains were launched in 1997. James Doohan died in July 2005 at age 85. On Saturday morning she wore a flight jacket from Doohan’s son-in-law, Air Force Reserve Chief Master Sgt. Paul Pritchard, who died this week of cancer. “He and Jimmy are together watching history,” Wende Doohan said. Kathy Allums’ uncle, James Roach, told relatives long before his death three years ago that he wanted his remains flown to space. Some laughed at the seemingly crazy idea. “I’m just beside myself,” said Allums, of Arlington, Texas. “It’s more than what I expected. It’s exactly what he would have wanted.” Charles Chafer, chief executive of Celestis, said last month that a CD with more than 11,000 condolences and fan notes was placed on the rocket with Doohan’s remains. The launch from the fledgling spaceport – currently a 100-foot by 25-foot concrete slab in a patch of desert more than 50 miles north of Las Cruces – keeps the New Mexico project ahead of its nearest competitor, in West Texas. Jeff Bezos, founder of, is said to be developing the spaceport north of Van Horn, Texas. Bezos’ Blue Origin is working to develop tourist space flights. British billionaire Richard Branson also has announced plans to launch a space tourism company, which is expected to have its headquarters at the New Mexico spaceport. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

We stuck the landing,” said Knight. UP Aerospace launched the first rocket from the desert site in September, but that Spaceloft XL rocket crashed into the desert after spiraling out of control about nine seconds after lift-off. Company officials blamed the failure on a faulty fin design. Family members paid $495 to place a few grams of their relatives’ ashes on the rocket. Celestis, a Houston company, contracted with UP to send the cremated remains into space. Family and friends who watched the 20-foot rocket take off from about 4 miles away cheered and cried as it flew and the mission control center announced the launch was successful. UPHAM, N.M. – The cremated remains of actor James Doohan, who portrayed engineer Scotty on “Star Trek,” and of Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper soared into suborbital space Saturday aboard a rocket. It was the first successful launch from Spaceport America, a commercial spaceport being developed in the southern New Mexico desert. Suzan Cooper and Wende Doohan fired the rocket carrying small amounts of their husbands’ ashes, and those of about 200 others, at 8:56 a.m. local time. “Go baby, go baby,” said Eric Knight of the commercial launch company, UP Aerospace Inc. of Farmington, Conn. last_img read more

Hosts France enjoy winning start as women’s World Cup kicks off

first_img0Shares0000Wendie Renard is jumped on by her teammates after scoring one of her two goals in France’s 3-0 win over South Korea on Friday as the Women’s World Cup kicked off in Paris © AFP / FRANCOIS XAVIER MARITPARIS, France, Jun 8 – Hosts France laid down a marker in the opening game of the women’s World Cup as towering defender Wendie Renard scored twice in a convincing 4-0 win over South Korea to kick off the tournament in style in Paris on Friday.A sell-out crowd of 45,261 filled the Parc des Princes to watch the start of what is billed as the biggest women’s World Cup yet, but there was no sign of the pressure getting to the French. Les Bleues are among the favourites to win the trophy on home soil and they showed no mercy to the Koreans, with the prolific Eugenie Le Sommer giving them an early lead and Renard — the tallest player at the tournament — twice heading home before the interval.Captain Amandine Henry, impressive throughout, wrapped up the win in this Group A encounter, a goal she said was “the realisation of a dream I had as a little girl”.“We went into the match the right way,” Henry told broadcaster TF1, revealing her team had become emotional during the national anthem.“We were close to tears when the ‘Marseillaise’ was playing, the emotions were running high.”French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte watched France’s victory, sitting alongside FIFA chief Gianni Infantino.– ‘Explosion’ of women’s game –Infantino had this week promised the month-long tournament would see the “explosion” of the women’s game as he was re-elected unopposed at the head of world football’s governing body. Almost a million tickets have been sold for matches in the nine host cities.This was certainly a fine start with a carnival atmosphere despite the cool evening and the French showing their credentials.France’s own football federation have set the team the target of going all the way to the final in Lyon on July 7.Artists perform during the opening ceremony in Paris © AFP / Lionel BONAVENTUREThe problem for coach Corinne Diacre’s side is that, if they win their group, they could well end up facing reigning champions the United States in Paris in the quarter-finals.Germany, who face China on Saturday, and England are also among the contenders.The USA, whose legal battle to be paid the same as their male counterparts has made waves in the run-up to the tournament, start their campaign against Thailand in Reims on Tuesday.Ranked fourth in the world, the French women have underperformed at recent major tournaments, losing in the quarter-finals of the last World Cup, Euro 2017 and the last Olympics.Diacre is relying on a core of players from Lyon, Europe’s leading club side who won a fourth successive Champions League last month.There were seven Lyon players in France’s starting line-up, and two of them combined for the ninth-minute opener, captain Henry with the low ball into the box for Le Sommer to fire in off the crossbar. It was Le Sommer’s 75th goal for her country.South Korea offered little, with their star player, Chelsea’s Ji So-yun, barely touching the ball.France thought they had a second before the half-hour mark when Renard’s header down was hooked into the net by Griedge Mbock, but after the celebrations had finally died down, the goal was disallowed for an extremely tight offside following a VAR review.The 1.87-metre (6ft 1ins) Renard was not to be denied, however, as she headed in Gaetane Thiney’s corner from the right in the 35th minute to make it 2-0.She did it again in first-half stoppage time, this time heading in an Amel Majri corner from the other side.Korea can count themselves lucky that this did not turn into a full-blown rout, although the excellent Henry curled in a delightful fourth from 20 yards with five minutes left.“I would like to say sorry to football fans in Korea,” said their coach, Yoon Deok-yeo. “Today’s match showed how strong France are.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Contract for Metro transit patrols up for grabs

first_imgCompetition for the $62.5 million annual contract to police the city’s mass transit system is heating up among some law enforcement agencies, months before bidding wars begin. Metro’s five-year agreement with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will expire June 30, 2008, and officials do not yet know if they will renew it. The transit agency is reviewing other security options that could dismantle the sheriff’s grip on the mass transit system and save about $4.7 million. Roger Snoble, Metro’s chief executive officer, said at a recent workshop that the security-program review should not be considered a criticism of the Sheriff’s Department and its staff assigned to the transit agency. “We are very happy with the Sheriff’s Department,” said Snoble. “But we are always looking for the best fit.” “We are definitely interested in the contract,” said Tanaka. “We believe it is a good contract for the Sheriff’s Department. We believe it is a good contract for the people we provide service to: the Metro authority and its ridership.” Metro security work was shared from 1998 to 2003 by its own officers; by the Sheriff’s Department, which patrolled unincorporated Los Angeles; and by the Los Angeles Police Department, which covered the city of Los Angeles. The job involves security on five rail lines, a dedicated busway and 2,250 buses. But in 2003, the Sheriff’s Department beat out the LAPD for a five-year contract to police the mass transit system, after submitting a proposal that was $7 million cheaper in its first year than if the LAPD had continued sharing duties. Although the stage could be set for another tug of war between the two law enforcement agencies, LAPD officials on Friday were not aware of any plans to bid on the impending contract. “There is no tug,” said LAPD Lt. Roger Mora. “There isn’t even a pull.” Ultimately, a decision will come from Metro’s board, which will hash out the direction for its security program and then solicit bids. It could involve a variety of competing interests. Among the 13 Metro board members are all five members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, which oversees the Sheriff’s Department’s budgeting, as well as L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his three Metro appointees, including Councilman Bernard Parks, former chief of the LAPD. Others on the Metro board include Glendale Mayor Ara Najarian, Santa Monica Councilwoman Pam O’Connor and Long Beach Councilwoman Bonnie Lowenthal. A Duarte councilman also serves. Security would be fractured if multiple police agencies handled it for the transit agency, said Dan Finkelstein, Metro transit police chief and a Sheriff’s Department commander. “Having an entity that can cross all the geographic boundaries makes sense,” Finkelstein said. At a recent workshop to review security, Parks warned the board that reducing the number of armed deputies and replacing them with lower-level security officers, just to save some money, puts all security at risk. “It could be a ticket they (passengers) show them,” said Parks. “Or it could be a gun.” (818) 713-3746160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In addition, Metro would contract with a law enforcement agency to act as the central core of its operations, as the Sheriff’s Department now does and could bid to continue doing. But Metro is considering paring down sworn officers from the 387 working today to about 100, said Jack Eckles, Metro deputy executive officer for systems, safety and security. The transit agency could then negotiate contracts with other local police departments getting paid overtime to patrol buses and rails passing through their jurisdictions. Already, police agencies from Pasadena, Long Beach, Glendale and Santa Monica are interested in the shot to patrol the bus and rail lines running through their jurisdictions, Eckles said. The county Sheriff’s Department is interested in pursuing the contract again, as long as the Metro board believes the agency is providing the appropriate level of service, said Paul Tanaka, assistant sheriff. last_img read more

The girls dictated from the off with a Katie O’Brien point and a brace of Caitlin McGarrigle frees helping them settle into the game. The first goal came from some great direct running by Danielle McGarrigle who struck home confidently. She added a point shortly after before Emer O’Brien drilled home a second goal with a well-placed shot. Another Katie O’Brien point concluded an exceptional half of football from the hosts where the incredible work-rate of the midfield and defence restricted Termon to a single point. Things started better for the visitors in the second half with an early goal, but Aodh Ruadh got the perfect response when Aoibheann McGarrigle rattled home at the other end. After that the scoring rate dropped off significantly and Termon managed to work their way back into contention with a couple of goals. They were also helped by a superb penalty save from a well-struck shot by their excellent keeper. However Aodh Ruadh finished strong and a point from Sara Jane Keon followed by score of the game, an rasper of a goal from Aoibheann McGarrigle, saw the Shamettes take the victory.

Defending champions KCCA FC fire blanks in league opener

first_imgKCCA’s Isaac (right) was one of the star players that failed to impress on the nightKCCA FC 0 – 0 Maroons FC.KCCA FC played out a goaless draw with Maroons at the StarTimes Stadium in the league opener.The Kasasiro boys who were tiped to put Maroons to the sword, clearly had a bad day at office failing to create any clear cut chances.On the other hand, Maroons where the ones creating the better chance, with man of the match Charles Lukwago the one to thank for the stalement as he made several excellent saves to deny the new comers.The higlight of the game was when Lukwago dived high to his left to tip over Godwin Kitagenda’s free kick in the first half.Mike Mutebi, KCCA FC head coach, said it was a bad day, adding that they were lucky to have gotten something from the game.“The so called big players like Muzamir Mutyaba did not turn up and we were playing alot of horizontal passes which were not taking us foward,” he said.Asaph Mwebaze, Maroons head coach, said: “We are gutted because we created the better chances but could not score. I don’t blame the boys because they where playing the defending champions so they may have been a little fazed by the occassion.Asked about the sudden U-turn after confirming he had left Maroons and then appearing on the touch line for today’s game, Asaph said: “Yes I had left but they(Maroons) offered me a new and improved contact so i returned.”KCCA travel to Bombo to play Moses Basena’s UPDF side while Maroons are at home to Onduparaka in Luzira.Commentslast_img read more
