Former President Burnham remembered

first_imgAcores of persons turned up at the Mausoleum Site in the Botanical Gardens on Saturday morning to pay homage to the founder of the People’s National Congress and former President of Guyana, Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham. The former Guyanese President died 31 years ago on August 6.Those present at the ceremony were executive members of the PNC including former Leader Robert Corbin, members of the Government, Speaker of the National Assembly Dr Barton Scotland, parliamentarians, among others.Additionally, Richard Van West Charles, son-in-law of the former president was present on behalf of the Burnham family.Speaking at the memorial ceremony, current Chairman of PNC/R Basil Williams reflected that it was Burnham who first set the precedence for a coalition party by forming one back in the 1960s when it joined forces with the United Force (UF). This, Williams noted, paved the way for the current six-party coalition that is governing the country.Meanwhile, current PNC/R Leader and President of Guyana David Granger in brief remarks outlined that Burnham laid the foundation for the consolidation of the country and went on to become the premier of British Guiana, transforming it into a more united and less unequal country.Granger recalled a speech given by Burnham in which he highlighted the importance of all the races to the PNC-led administration. The president noted that his administration holds those precepts to be paramount and permanent as it proceeds along a path of national unity and the ambition of social integration.“Today, it’s our Government’s duty as it was 50 years ago to protect the interest of all and not of some,” the Head of State posited.Furthermore, Granger stated that Burnham was the author for social cohesion and the architect of national unity, fighting against the marginalisation and segregation which prevails during the colonial regime.The memorial service kicked off the series of events planned in memory of Burnham. Another event – a dance production by National Dance Company titled ‘A celebration of African Heritage 9’ – was held on Saturday night.last_img read more

Motorists decry condition of Parfaite Harmonie access road

first_imgMotorists and residents utilising the La Parfaite Harmonie access road at Schoonord on the West Bank of Demerara, are calling on the relevant authorities to execute urgent repairs on certain sections of the road since it is plagued by large potholes.This pothole runs straight across the Parfaite Harmonie Access RoadThe residents are contending that the pothole-riddled road causes severe mechanical damages to their vehicles, which amounts to hundreds of thousands of dollars in repairs. In addition to the deplorable state of the road, the 3.5-kilometer stretch of road is yet to be outfitted with streetlights. According to road users, traversing the road is dangerous at nights because of the potholes, no lighting and the presence of cows.Motorcyclist, Andrew Camacho told Guyana Times that approximately three weeks ago, he unexpectedly slipped into a pothole, which threw him off his bike resulting in minor injuries.“Me and my wife was coming home from (George)town and because we live at Last Bridge (West Minister) we does use this road to go home and that was around 7:30 (19:00h) when I missed that hole and slip in it. The bike fall on my wife foot and sprain she ankle and me get some bruise,” the man related.He added that he would have had to spend over $20,000 to get his bike fixed and is hoping that the road is fixed before a more serious accident occurs.The road was constructed to the tune of over $604 million and commissioned in September 2014 – BK International and Gaico Construction undertook the project.Since the commissioning, the road has rapidly deteriorated as a result of the high volume of heavy-duty vehicles that traverse the road carting building materials, among other things, as the scheme rapidly develops. Just last year, Gaico Construction Company’s workmen were fixing potholes along the road and following a deadly accident early this year, it was outfitted with several speed humps.However, residents are contending that the speed humps do little or nothing to curb the speeding issue along the road. Additionally, they are claiming that the potholes are appearing overnight which is indicative of substandard construction of the access road.Presently, the Schoonord access road serves as one of three access points to the La Parfaite Harmonie Housing Scheme, with the other two being through Independence Street, La Grange and Canal Number One.A hire car driver, Andy Singh, told Guyana Times that he operates from the housing scheme to Vreed-en-Hoop and because of the road’s close location to his destination point, it is ideal for him to use. The man said his vehicle is being damaged on a regular basis and is pleading with the authorities to have the road fixed.“Bai what me go tell yuh? Is every other month I got to change me tyres on this car because is not just this road that bad. If you go round this scheme you go see more bad road than good one but nobody nah do nothing,” he said.The Parfaite Harmonie Housing Scheme is laden with deplorable roads and residents have been repeatedly calling on the Government to address their concerns. In addition to roads, the condition of the Parfaite Harmonie Health Centre leaves much to be desired while the sides of the road serve as a hiding spot for petty thieves.Government’s responseOn Saturday, Central Housing and Planning Authority’s (CH&PA) Project Director Omar Narine told this publication that they are aware of the condition of the roads and that measures are being put in place to address the issue.He said the CH&PA is working with the Public Infrastructure Ministry to develop an estimate to have the main access road fixed.Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson has said Government is addressing the issue, and pointed out that “contracts are out for (its) repair and maintenance.” Meanwhile, Minister within the Communities Ministry, Valarie Adams-Yearwood had earlier this year promised that the roads in the area would be upgraded.“We are doing road upgrades at Parfaite Harmonie and Westminster and those works will commence in about two weeks; and through the reformulated [Inter-Development Bank] IDB loan in 2018, we are going to spend over $500 million to do upgrade works in Parfaite,” the Minister had said.“I know they (residents) have been complaining about the state of the roads. We are paying attention, and we are listening to people; and while we can’t deal with everything immediately, we are paying attention to the ones that are more critical,” Adams-Yearwood added.last_img read more

President calls on Guyanese to preserve ‘free’, ‘cohesive’ State

first_imgLet’s celebrate our diversityIn his 51st Independence anniversary address to the nation, President David Granger said this occasion should inspire Guyanese to continue to work towards preserving the ‘free state,’ establishing a ‘green state’, and creating a ‘cohesive state’; while at the same time celebrating the country’s diversity and bridging its differences.President David GrangerHe noted that Independence Day in Guyana celebrates the moment in history when, after 350 years of Dutch and British colonisation, its peoples abolished foreign rule.“We established a ‘free state’ with the hope of ensuring equality and eradicating poverty. It was the day on which we adopted our own Constitution and erected institutions to govern ourselves and guarantee our freedom,” the President said.The Guyanese Head of State also said that Independence Day celebrates the unique combination of the people who came – Africans, Chinese, Indians and Portuguese – and with the Amerindians who lived here from time immemorial, contributed to the creation of a multi-racial and multi-religious state.President Granger noted that the ‘free state’ which was established on May 26th 1966 recognised the country’s commitment to social cohesion, through which its people learned to accept and respect each other’s values and beliefs, and to share the common space they call homeland.“The ‘free state’ is one that is free from discrimination. It is one that is built on the basis of respect for cultural diversity, political inclusivity and social equality.The ‘free state’ recognises our common and complex heritage. It reminds us of Chinese Arrival Day, celebrated on 12th January; of Portuguese Arrival Day, celebrated on 3rd May; of Indian Arrival Day, celebrated on 5th May; of African Emancipation Day, celebrated on 1st August; and of Indigenous Heritage Month, observed throughout September,” Granger noted.The Guyanese leader said the ‘free state’ re-commits the country to dismantling the divisions of geography. Disparities between hinterland and coastland and between rural and urban communities eventually must be eliminated, so that no group feels excluded, the Head of State has posited.Moreover, he noted that the ‘cohesive state’ is concerned with constructing a multi-cultural society and creating the conditions for diverse peoples to coexist.“Society needs to be strengthened in each occupational sector, in each geographical region, in each community, and in each social stratum. The ‘cohesive state’ is not a political expedient. It can be realised only by respecting the differences and the diversity of society, and by the removal of anger, hatred, ignorance and poverty. It can be created by mutual respect for each other’s cultural and religious differences,” he added.Granger noted that Guyana’s national tapestry is composed of the variegated threads – culture, ethnicity and faith – of its peoples. The national tapestry, he added, is stronger because it is woven from our separate but sturdy strands.He said, “It is more resilient, because it represents and reflects the talents of different groups.”On the other hand, the Head of State outlined that independence also bequeathed a state through which Guyanese became heirs of a magnificent patrimony; that is, a beautiful, blissful and bountiful country that is becoming a ‘green state’.“The ‘green state’ is a natural product of our verdant and luxuriant environment. Our ecosystems – our coastland, hinterland, highlands, islands, wetlands, grasslands, lakes, rivers, rainforests and waterfalls – are our birthright. Our bio-diversity is the endowment of our ancestors, the patrimony of all Guyanese, and the bequest we hold in trust for posterity,” he asserted.The President said the ‘green state’ can flourish, and can furnish a ‘good life’ for generations to come by engendering a spirit of shared social responsibility.According to the Guyanese Leader, the ‘green state’ must embody a common commitment to the environment which arises from our unique shared patrimony, and which will lead to a prosperous future.“The 51st anniversary of Independence inspires us all to continue to work towards preserving the ‘free state’; towards establishing a ‘green state’, and towards creating a ‘cohesive state.’ I extend fraternal congratulations to all – at home and in our diaspora – as we celebrate our freedom, our statehood, and our precious patrimony,” the President said.Happy Independence Anniversary!last_img read more

HUGE RESPONSE TO ANTI-CRIME MEETING IN LETTERKENNY

first_imgA meeting to explore the possibility of a Neighbourhood Watch for a group of townlands  outside Letetrkenny has received a huge response.The area, which stretches from the Top of Moorefield to the Golf Course Road in Letterkenny, attracted a huge crowd of more than 200 concerned residents to the Silver Tassie Hotel on Monday night.A further meeting to establish Neighbourhood Watch is to take place at the same venue on next Monday evening at 8.30pm. As the crowd struggled to get inside the room it was clearly evident that this is a community determined to make their voices heard in supporting the Gardai in the battle against criminality in Donegal.There are many such like communities on the outskirts of Letterkenny but until Monday night they had not been together on a community basis and despite living close by for a number of years, they are still strangers to each other.The call to action had come from local man, Noel Sweeney of the Swilly Drive School of Motoring.He expected a handful of people to come along and he was dumbfounded as the crowds just kept coming. He explained that he took this initiative after a series of thefts and burglaries had taken place in recent months and it was time to fight back.He organised Monday evening’s meeting in the hope that an organised approach can help to turn the tide on the criminals at a time when Garda resources are at an all-time low.And so it was that a huge crowd attended the function room at the hotel to hear Sgt. Paul Wallace and Sgt. Eunan Walsh provide vital data and advice on how to fight back against the current crime wave sweeping across many parts of Donegal as the ever lengthening shadows of winter dominate the rural landscape.“Crime is a community problem and we can do lots to prevent it by being aware of our own surroundings. By being involve with our own areas: by getting the young people involved and by keeping a lookout for the elderly people in all your townlands.“It is vital to develop a sense of community through proper communications and so much can be achieved by being alert: being aware and by being good neighbours,’ said Paul Wallace at the outset of the meeting. In a very informative PowerPoint presentation, Sgt. Wallace laid out the facts, figures for crime: prevention measures and the necessity for good community communication strategies and how to lessen the risk of thieves coming onto your property.Many at Monday night’s meeting would be very familiar with the distinctive blue and gold Neighbourhood Watch signs which have been dotted across many roadsides in rural Ireland for almost 30 years.Neighbourhood Watch, which started in Ireland in 1985, runs in close to 2,500 communities and villages across Ireland and Gardaí say they have seen a 30% increase in Neighbourhood Watch schemes as dormant schemes are rejuvenated and new schemes are set up by residents around the country.The increase comes amid changing lifestyles that people in urban areas are less likely to know their neighbours than they were twenty years ago. The reasons why the crime prevention scheme has been kick-started over the past three years could be attributed to people who have lost jobs or had working hours cut back looking to do something positive and meaningful in their neighbourhoods; to older people locked in fear behind closed doors. And to a shift in policing approaches which has seen community policing become more important to reduce crime.Neighbourhood Watch, said Sgt. Wallace is not a replacement for the role of the Gardai but it is a means to being more alert, more vigilant and it is a way of getting to know each other in communities like those at Monday night’s meeting.These schemes are a good way of making people feel empowered to take on the problems in their areas and while the scheme doesn’t replace policing, a large part of Neighbourhood Watch is about stopping smaller, preventable crimes by encouraging people to take actions themselves.‘It’s about reducing and minimising opportunities for crime and encouraging people to do what they can to stop smaller crimes and it sends out a message to the criminals that every townland is on the lookout for strange behavour in their midst.“Often, this comes down to following basic tips to stop criminals from taking advantage of an opportunity to commit a crime: not leaving valuables in clear sight in a car, for example, ensuring that house doors are locked, and leaving a light on in a house when the occupant is not there.“It’s also about fostering a sense of community in an area. If people know each other, they’re more likely to look out for each other,” says Sgt Wallace.Next Monday’s meeting will see a steering group formed with a framework set in motion to establish a Community Neighbourhood Watch in the area as a matte of priority.The meeting will begin at 8.30 and those attending are being advised to come early. And while a huge crowd came along on Monday night, every household in the area is invited to be present at next week’s meeting in the Sliver Tassie because the opinion of every single family is vital in preparing an organised approach to the campaign.HUGE RESPONSE TO ANTI-CRIME MEETING IN LETTERKENNY was last modified: November 7th, 2013 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:letterkennynieghbourhood watch schemeNoel Sweeneylast_img read more

YOUR VIEW: IN DEFENCE OF DONEGAL AND JIM McGUINNESS

first_imgWE WELCOME all views to donegaldaily.com and there has been a huge debate this week on the Donegal v Dublin game. Below is a view from Dublin. It might just surprise you.YOUR VIEW: FROM DR DECLAN PATTON, BLANCHARDSTOWN, DUBLIN:“The GAA football community awoke this week to a world that would never be the same again. Throughout media outlets, chaste GAA pundits were engaging in soundbyte-driven analysis of an impending Armageddon. What they were really saying was how the upstarts from Donegal dared to step out of line, and God forbid put another northern dent into the traditional footballing prowess of counties from the deep south and their apologists.Over the past decade, northern football has led the way in new and better GAA coaching techniques and match strategies. Having to implement these new ways of playing in the boiling pot of the Ulster Football Championship has ensured that Ulster teams have met with great success at all levels.All the while, the southern-based pundits and associated hangers-on have developed an argument based on the equation that the purity of Gaelic football was being eroded by Machiavellian northerners, who dared to think outside the box in the most sinful way.I oppose what I call the ‘neo-conservative purity position’ on two grounds. First, rather than being deadly transgressions of anything normal, the tackling and defensive strategy employed by Donegal, and indeed Dublin, last Sunday is an art in itself. Just as being able to kick with both feet is an essential GAA skill, so is being able to tackle.Indeed, tackling is the great leveller in GAA football, as it gives ammunition to the not-as-gifted to stand shoulder to shoulder with a more skilled opponent. Likewise, the defensive duvet employed by Donegal is another new departure, which is clearly an innovative template for other traditionally weaker teams to use.My second point relates to the fact that Donegal have been the most derided and laughed at team in GAA circles over the last decade. Not a championship passes without smug remarks being made about the non-winning capabilities of Donegal footballers.Now, as things have changed and a new threat is possibly emerging from the northern shadows, the high priests of the GAA are falling over themselves calling foul on the cheeky pups from the northwest. Listening to the Donegal manager on Sunday evening, followers of innovation and change in the GAA would have warmed to the fact that rather than agree with the annoying analysts cosied up in the nearby television studio, he simply reminded everyone that Donegal will see ye next time folks.”COMMENTS are welcome in the comment box below.

€9M upgrade in the pipeline for Ballybofey Stranorlar Wastewater Treatment Plant

first_imgIrish Water has today announced it will invest approximately €9 million as part of the upgrade of Ballybofey and Stranorlar wastewater treatment plant in partnership with Donegal County Council.Local Cllr Patrick McGowan has welcomed the announced upgrade, which will bring benefits to the town and surrounding areas in terms of development potential, environmental protection, and improved water quality.Commenting on the project, Colm Claffey, Irish Water’s Infrastructure Programme Regional Lead said: “The upgrade works will increase the treatment capacity of the plant to meet the current needs of the town and to allow for growth. The works will also ensure that wastewater is treated and discharged in compliance with the Urban Wastewater Treatment Regulations 2001, and conditions set out in the Wastewater Discharge Licence (WWDL) issued by the Environmental Protection Agency. It will also improve the water quality of the River Finn and the aquatic environment from pollution.” The contract, which was signed by Irish Water and Response Engineering Ltd on Wednesday, March 7, will see the work commence on site in May 2018. Irish Water expects these works to last for approximately 16 months and upon completion the newly upgraded wastewater treatment plant will serve a future population equivalent (PE) of 9,200.The Ballybofey and Stranorlar plant was identified in the recent annual EPA Wastewater Report as non-compliant with European wastewater directives. Upon completion, these works will ensure that the plant is compliant with the Urban Waste Water Treatment Regulations and the Environmental Protection Agency’s license.Irish Water said that capital investment in the region of €700 million per year is needed for a sustained period of several decades to address the poor condition of Ireland’s water infrastructure. Works have been prioritised to address the most critical issues in line with commitments outlined in Irish Water’s Business Plan up to 2021. Delivery of the business plan will involve a €5.5bn investment in capital spending on drinking water and wastewater quality and capacity and new infrastructure up to 2021 while achieving efficiencies of €1.6bn.€9M upgrade in the pipeline for Ballybofey Stranorlar Wastewater Treatment Plant was last modified: March 9th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:Ballybofey Stranorlar Wastewater Treatment PlantIrish Waterlast_img read more

Mega–Marine Reserve Going Off-Limits to Fishers

first_imgThe government of the Pacific island nation Kiribati has announced that it will close one of the world’s biggest marine reserves to all commercial fishing at the end of the year. The Phoenix Islands Protected Area, about the size of California, is home to the world’s last major stocks of tuna. Since creating the protected area in 2008, Kiribati has allowed unrestricted fishing in 97% of the reserve; an estimated 50,000 tons of tuna were taken there in 2012 alone.“To have such a big no-take zone in such a productive area will allow the species that are fished, like tuna, billfish and sharks to go back to their natural densities and make that part of the ocean whole again,” says Daniel Pauly, a fisheries scientist at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, in Canada. “And that has never been done.”Kiribati President Anote Tong had been widely criticized for maintaining in public forums that commercial fishing was prohibited in the entire reserve from the start. The planned moratorium, set to take effect on 31 December, “is fantastic news,” says Sari Tolvanen, an oceans campaigner at Greenpeace International in Amsterdam.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more
