Ground zero at the Georgetown City Council?

first_imgDear Editor,Well, well, well! Is it not yet ground zero at the Georgetown City Council? Is it not yet time to call in the Audit Office of Guyana and have a thorough forensic audit of its financial systems? Is it not yet time to call in the National Police? And is it not yet time to have a Commission of Inquiry at City Hall? Where there is no vision, the people perish.With the municipality owing the Credit Union over $26 million; the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) $127.4 million; and the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), $132 million, what worse can happen at the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Georgetown that would prompt Central Government to intervene and restore some semblance of sanity there. And we have not begun to talk about their debts to agencies such as the Guyana Power and Light, the Guyana Water Inc and the other creditors.Why is it left to the poor workers to have to go on strike to ensure that the deductions from their hard earned wages and salaries are remitted to the relevant agencies? City Hall is just a sordid den of crime.Listening to the Council’s administration, one would never get the impression the laws of Guyana are being broken, it more seems like they are entitled to withhold these deductions because they are cash-strapped, and that they will get around to paying it sometime when they get the money. Can you believe that?Why does the Commissioner General of the GRA, the General Manager of the NIS and the Head of the Credit Union not take the Council to court for so palpably breaking the law? Does this have anything to do with politics? Would they allow a private entity such laxity? Why doesn’t the Social Protection Ministry come to the rescue of the municipal workers who have no benefits to obtain from the National Insurance Scheme when they become ill, no tax refunds or clearance from the GRA and no loans from the Credit Unions when needed?How could a public institution so publicly and casually be allowed to break the laws of the land? Why are these errant administrators still at their desks? Is there no recourse for municipal workers other than to take strike action? Is there no recourse for the ratepayers of Georgetown? The senior administrators at City Hall are just square pegs in round holes and everyone knows it, but seems unwilling to rock the boat. They just thumb their noses at the citizenry.The perennial excuse that the Council is cash-strapped is a feeble and worn out one. Why not slash its ginormous wages bill in half? Instead they are hiring more staff. Why not get rid of all of those contractors, incidentally they are hiring more contractors. Why don’t they stop flying around the world with large delegations to achieve nothing?Instead of trying to seize State lands for personal fortification, instead of forging ahead with a parking meter scam that will never work, should they not have taken the windfall they got from the container tax and paid the GRA, the NIS and the Credit Union.Will someone stand up and say enough is enough at City Hall? Will the incompetent, deceitful and irresponsible fat cats at City Hall who are living luxuriously off the backs of the citizens be removed and replaced with honest, capable and knowledgeable persons.Best regards,Sambu Jacobuslast_img read more

Sanchez stars again as Arsenal down Watford

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal’s Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez celebrates after scoring the opening goal of the English Premier League football match between Watford and Arsenal at Vicarage Road Stadium in Watford.WATFORD, October 17 – Alexis Sanchez continued his remarkable scoring streak as Arsenal regained second place in the Premier League table with a 3-0 win at Watford on Saturday.The Chile forward opened the scoring in the 62nd minute to record his seventh goal in his last four Arsenal outings. The 26-year-old also scored once for his country against Brazil and twice against Peru in 2018 World Cup qualifying, bringing his total since September 26 to 10 goals in just six games.Arsene Wenger’s side have a home date with Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday and will go into that game having been tested in all areas of the pitch by Watford, who are finding goals hard to come by on their return to the Premier League.Wins earlier in the day for Manchester City, Manchester United — who temporarily moved above Arsenal into second place — and West Ham United had put added pressure on the Gunners to perform at Vicarage Road.Laurent Koscielny, back from a hamstring injury, ousted Gabriel in central defence in the only change to the side that had beaten United 3-0 directly before the international break.That meant Theo Walcott continued up front, with Olivier Giroud forced to bide his time on the bench.Arsenal applied early pressure and Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes made a smart stop low down after Walcott had met Aaron Ramsey’s cross from the right with a cushioned header.Sanchez, back from a profitable if lengthy trip to South America to represent Chile, was next to have a go, cutting in from the left and unleashing from outside the box, but again Gomes was able to save.Watford responded with a fierce long-range drive from Troy Deeney, the captain, that Petr Cech did well to beat away.Arsenal almost opened the scoring in the 28th minute when a delightful ball to the back post from Sanchez picked out Ramsey’s run, only for the Wales midfielder to volley over.– Watford penalty appeals –There was also a close call in the visitors’ penalty area, when Odion Ighalo shot wide under pressure from Nacho Monreal, who was adjudged not to have fouled the Nigerian by referee Mike Jones.Jones had another decision to make just before half-time when Per Mertesacker and Cech got into a tangle as Deeney chased a long ball.The ball ended up hitting Cech, who was outside his area, but the official decided no arm had been used, at least not deliberately.Arsenal dominated the early exchanges in the second period, but Deeney and Ighalo were still causing problems at the other end and Mertesacker was booked for a clumsy challenge on the latter that the home fans felt deserved a harsher punishment.Etienne Capoue, having seen a shot charged down, went down in the Arsenal box as he tussled with Francis Coquelin in search of the rebound.But Jones again ignored home pleas for a penalty and Arsenal sped up the other end and opened the scoring through Sanchez.Jones might have awarded Arsenal a penalty when Mesut Ozil was upended by Nathan Ake, but Sanchez, who had been involved in the build-up, put the loose ball in off a post in a flash.The disappointing Walcott was substituted straight after and his replacement, Giroud, doubled the lead in the 68th minute.Ramsey’s ball took a deflection off a defender and Ozil’s pull-back from the byline on the right was despatched high into the net by the France forward.Ramsey was rewarded for his endeavour with a goal in the 74th minute, beating Gomes with a deflected shot after Hector Bellerin had burst into the box from the right and squared.Sanchez and Giroud each threatened to swell Arsenal’s lead, but a fourth goal would have been cruel on Watford.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Mandzukic sinks City in Juve last-16 joy

first_img0Shares0000Juventus’ forward Mario Mandzukic celebrates after scoring during a UEFA Champions League football match against Manchester City on November 25, 2015 at the Juventus Stadium in Turin. PHOTO/AFPTURIN, November 26- A first-half strike from Mario Mandzukic saw last season’s beaten finalists Juventus into the last 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday with a 1-0 win over injury-hit Manchester City.City, already qualified following their 3-1 win at Sevilla last time out, travelled to Turin looking to secure top spot in Group D as well as avenge their 2-1 defeat to the Bianconeri at the Etihad Stadium in September. But a second successive defeat to the Italian champions means City now look likely to finish second behind Juve in the group. Juventus are now two points clear before facing Sevilla away next month, when City host Borussia Moenchengladbach.“Hats off to the lads, they’ve gifted me qualification with a game to spare,” said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.“It wasn’t an easy group. Borussia (Moenchengladbach) had a fantastic last season and Manchester are a technical side with top players.“It’s never easy to win a Champions League game. We’ve done that, again, while not conceding a goal at home. We’re proud of that statistic so the lads deserve all the credit they get.”City manager Manuel Pellegrini complained his defender Nicolas Otamendi was fouled by Mandzukic before the Croatian scored, and, despite Juve missing a host of chances, the Chilean felt the visitors were unlucky.“I think we were unlucky to lose,” said Pellegrini.“They scored a goal which I think was a foul before Mandzukic finished but the referee didn’t blow the whistle. But we had chances and didn’t score.”Pellegrini said beating Juventus on their own turf would also be a gauge of his side’s Champions League-winning potential, but it quickly became clear their current injury woes would play to Juve’s advantage.City forwards Wilfried Bony, David Silva and Samir Nasri are all still sidelined but the absence of Belgian centre-back and captain Vincent Kompany was most felt as Juventus went two points clear of City ahead of the sides’ final games next month.Juventus, who deployed a 3-5-2 amid injury concerns of their own, survived an early scare when Kevin De Bruyne was allowed to fire a cross into the area from the right following a corner and Fernandinho unleashed a drive that spun just wide with Gianluigi Buffon at full stretch.Juve were let off again after Giorgio Chiellini got tangled up with Yaya Toure in the area and Fernandinho pounced, only to flash over from 10 yards out.But moments later the visitors were stunned when Alex Sandro fired a delightful cross into the path of Mandzukic, who muscled his way past Nicolas Otamendi to finish.City were briefly left with 10 men when Jesus Navas fell under a challenge from Sandro, and Juventus brazenly capitalised.– Hart injured –Sighting Stephan Lichtsteiner’s run, Sandro promptly delivered and when the Swiss international headed into the path of Mandzukic, the Croatian’s first-timer brought a great reflex save from Joe Hart.After Toure’s tame shot on the spin went wide of Buffon’s post, at the other end Hart produced another great stop with his arm to thwart Lichtsteiner after he was sent through on the right side by Mandzukic.Juve started the second half brightly but City would go on to scare the hosts on several occasions.Fernando rose high above the Juve defence at a corner to fire in a header which Buffon turned onto the post and then smothered while under pressure from Martin Demichelis.But in open play, Juve were a class apart.Alvaro Morata replaced Mandzukic on 54 minutes and moments later the Spaniard sent a chip towards the far post that Paulo Dybala turned onto the upright.Hart was kept busy for the remainder of the half, before being replaced by Willy Caballero with 10 minutes remaining after suffering a suspected injury.The England ‘keeper kept his composure to stop Morata just inside the area after the Spaniard had dribbled his way past two players and into a scoring position while ignoring Dybala to his left.At the other end Raheem Sterling, who had replaced Sergio Aguero on 69 minutes, came close when his first-time effort from a tight angle spun just wide of Buffon’s far post.jd/as/dj© 1994-2015 Agence France-Presse0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000From left, Tomas Rosicky, Laurent Koscienly (center), Kieran GibbsLONDON, February 6 – Betting firm SportPesa have rolled out one of their road to 2022 Qatar World Cup projects after entering into a three and half year partnership with English Premier League giants Arsenal FCThe deal that was signed at Emirates Stadium in London, will focus on grassroots football including player and coach development effective mid season where the Arsenal will provide coaches to conduct five-day training camps in Kenya twice a year. Following the agreement, SportPesa has become the Official betting partner of Arsenal Football Club in Kenya.“It has been a long journey but we finally struck the deal. The deal entails achieving our dream of taking Kenya to 2022 World Cup. The partnership will see talent scouts from Arsenal identify good footballers.“The camps will be hosting 100 players but we have not come up with the procedure of player selection. We will find a way of identifying the people who will be involved in the project so that we don’t leave anybody out,” SportPesa CEO, Ronald Karauri announced.Arsenal Chief Commercial Officer, Vinai Venkatesham said the club’s aim is to ensure Kenya adopts the Gunner’s style of playing football that entails keeping the ball on the ground, passing, team work and speed of thought.“We have launched our latest commercial partnership with SportPesa, and they become our first betting partner that Arsenal has ever had in Kenya where we have a large fan base.“Grassroot development is important. We will send our very own coaches to Kenya to coach children and teach them play football in a style we call the Arsenal way.“Our coaches can’t be in Kenya all year round, so we will be training coaches and teach them what they need to impact on the children,” Venkatesham underscored.The camps will also help to support the initiatives that SportPesa have in place to identify and nurture talent as a grassroots level.Arsenal fans in Kenya will also be offered a range of club-related benefits, including official merchandise and match tickets to see the team in action at Emirates Stadium.Kenyan football administrators will be offered opportunities to meet and learn from expert Arsenal staff responsible for stadium management and security to borrow a leaf.“With such a deal, Arsenal will be beneficiaries because we will have free tickets to reward them each season. However, this is not Arsenal’s fans only because at the end of the day it’s about developing football in Kenya and the road to 2022. We will be looking to partner with other EPL clubs to sign deals,” Karuri added.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

City in talks for Cabela’s store

first_imgSANTA CLARITA — The city of Santa Clarita is in preliminary talks with sporting goods giant Cabela’s to build its first California megastore in Newhall, but it likely can expect some grueling negotiations about incentives. The Nebraska-based retailer is eyeing land where Hondo Oil Corp. operated a refinery until the mid-1980s, acreage just off the Antelope Valley Freeway near where it branches from Interstate 5, Paul Brotzman, Santa Clarita’s planning director, said Thursday. “It’s very preliminary, but we have been looking in California for a while now,” Cabela’s spokesman James Powell said. “We haven’t determined a particular location. That property is attractive because it’s central to a lot of natural areas, but we’re not close to a decision.” The location is ideal freeway frontage to draw from the San Fernando and Antelope valleys and beyond, Brotzman said. Most Cabela’s stores are about 3 or 4 acres and specialize in hunting, fishing and other outdoor sports, Powell said. The chain is looking for about 30 acres, Brotzman said. “They tend to be a fairly large sales-tax generator and a fairly large employer,” he said, noting city officials first met with company representatives at a trade show earlier this year. The state named Santa Clarita an enterprise zone in November, a status that could help draw Cabela’s, Brotzman said. Under the system, cities receive tax credits by adding jobs for low-income workers. The store is proposed near the lower-end east Newhall neighborhoods and would provide jobs. In some states, Cabela’s is the largest tourist attraction, according to one consultant who works with the company and asked not to be named. Its standard market areas can cover more than a 100-mile radius. And Cabela’s is known for driving hard incentive bargains in cities where it plans to locate, Brotzman said. “Obviously, they have things they bring to the table that cities like — tax revenue and employment,” he said. “They negotiate pretty hard for good land costs and also as much in the way of support from the city in terms of infrastructure and other support.” Santa Clarita won’t offer cash incentives, but it might consider using credits to pay for necessary improvements to roads, sewers and other public services, Brotzman said. Other cities have used big money to lure the retailer, according to published reports. Buda, Texas, provided a $61 million tax package, and Fort Worth gave a $41 million package to sign deals with Cabela’s, according to the Austin American-Statesman. Both stores opened in 2005. In Buda, the town agreed to own 20 percent of the store and a third of the land it’s on, giving it partial tax-free status, the newspaper said. According to the Journal Inquirer in Hartford, Conn., Voters in Hooksett, N.H., agreed to an $18 million tax district to help the store locate. In a deal approved earlier this month in Scarborough, Maine, the town will provide $8 million from a tax district to lure Cabela’s. Before any move to California, the chain first wants to settle a prolonged battle with the state to free it from charging its catalog customers sales tax. Cabela’s operates 18 stores, mostly in the Midwest, and has been expanding in all directions with recent approvals of 10 more outlets. The closest to California is in Glendale, Ariz., a fast-growing Phoenix suburb. The company is big in wilderness regions that lure outdoor sports enthusiast — the Midwest, New England and in Texas. But Powell said California is a target because of its own vast natural regions. “California has a large number of licensed hunters and anglers,” he said. “That coupled with great hiking, birding and camping — that’s our core. We’re one of the largest camping retailers in the country.” Brotzman said the location near the freeway junction is ideal because it’s easily accessible to a large region and is a gateway between Los Angeles and the sporting grounds of the Sierra. — Patricia Farrell Aidem, (661) 257-5251 pat.aidem@dailynews.com AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: John Jackson greets a Christmas that he wasn’t sure he’d see160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are.“Everyone within the club, from the manager to the owner, knows Paul’s wishes.”KEEP UP TO DATE WITH ALL THE LATEST BREAKING NEWS AND RUMOURS IN TALKSPORT’S LIVE TRANSFER BLOGThe 26-year-old has since been widely criticised for openly revealing his desire to leave, with many claiming he should be more respectful to the club rather than eyeing up greener pastures.Criticism was renewed on Monday as Pogba was targeted by fans on social media when a video surfaced of him allegedly clashing with Jesse Lingard when United touched down in Australia for their pre-season tour. 2 boost Liverpool update ‘Champions Wall’ after ending 2019 as European and world champions targets punished Mino Raiola insists Paul Pogba ‘has done nothing wrong’ and is hopeful the Manchester United midfielder will soon be granted his wish to leave the club.In an exclusive statement released to talkSPORT’s Jim White on Tuesday, Raiola claimed the Red Devils have been aware for a long time of the World Cup winner’s desire to depart Old Trafford.Pogba has faced criticism over his behaviour as he targets a move away this summer but his agent maintains he has acted professionally and respectfully at all times and has questioned why United have not spoken out to defend their player.

Investigation launched into possible oil pollution in Letterkenny

first_imgLetterkenny-based County Councillor Gerry Mc Monagle is calling on the council to carry out an investigation into the smell of diesel/oil currently being experienced by residents crossing the Oldtown Bridge in the town.Cllr Mc Monagle said it had been brought to his attention by a number of people who experienced the smell coming from the River Swilly with a visible oil slick on top of the water.The River Swilly in recent years has improved immensely with council bringing new guidelines and preventing untreated sewage entering the river. Local angling groups are also restocking the river with fish and there is a noticeable increase in returning Salmon.Councillor McMonagle said “I have contacted the council and requested they investigate this apparent leak of diesel or heating oil into the river to ensure there is no impact or effect to river life and to identify the source of this leak and take whatever action is necessary to prevent it happening again.”Investigation launched into possible oil pollution in Letterkenny was last modified: March 9th, 2017 by StephenShare 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) Tags:donegalletterkennyoil spilllast_img read more
