Doris Williams ‘VIP Stand’ Needs Facelift

first_imgScores of Bassanonians have expressed frustration over the shoddy construction of the ‘VIP Stand’ at the Doris Williams Sports Stadium in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County and have called for its restructuring.The VIP Stand was built like a house’s porch with large parallel irons, while the right-side had building blocks, indicating that those at the back seats would not see the other side of the pitch and those at the front not see clearly because of the thick and large irons which are installed horizontally.Sources said the construction fees were taken from the County Development Fund (CDF).The president of the Liberia Old-timer National Association (LONA) and astute football stakeholder, Cllr. T.C. Gould said the VIP Stand is shameful, and needs adjustment.Former Barrolle President Garmondeh Karnga and the president of Sinkor Oldtimer Association Paul Romeo Davis urged the County Administration to breakdown the building blocks on the other side of the witness stand and remove the thick and large irons and beautify the VIP Stand.Karnga said: “The rebuilding of the VIP Stand will smarten the field and make it look like a stadium, so we urged the administration.”For his part, Mr. Davis urged for the administration to rebuild the VIP Stand and said the County Authority must take responsibility for the rebuilding.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

No amount of jumbie arithmetic can deny the LGE result

first_imgDear Editor,The Local Government Election (LGE) has come and gone and the electorate has spoken. It was a midterm election used as a barometer to measure the Government’s performance (or non-performance), over the past three years. The fact that millions were spent on campaigning by all the political parties involved meant the primary objective of going into the election was to win and win big. As such, for some supporters of the Government to claim that the mere fact that LGE was held in 2018 is cause for celebration because it showed the world that local democracy is alive, (it should always be), is disingenuous and is an attempt to find some (any) consolation and solace amidst the devastation and utter rejection of a Government that has self-destructed, and is turning a blind eye to the realities, (and figures), of the just concluded election. The truth be told, showing the world that local democracy is alive in Guyana was of secondary importance in the larger scheme of things.Abraham Lincoln once said you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. What Lincoln didn’t say, (but should have said), is that there is nothing worse than fooling yourself. Based on what is being reported in the media, the only people the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government is fooling at this time is themselves and the two dozen supporters who were present at their joint press conference which was held at Congress Place, Sophia.In a referendum of sort on the APNU/AFC coalition Government, the people rejected them both and embraced the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) in a big way. The electorate saw the PPP as a shoulder to cry on and turned, (and many returned), to the cup, not for sustenance, but to shed their tears into and put their X next to. And justifiably so, for this present Government came into office promising change but has failed to deliver. In three years it has been a major disappointment and has become a talking point for all the wrong reasons. The APNU, (read People’s National Congress), must know now that the electorate, including their supporters, (save and except the two dozen present at their press conference at Sophia), has come to realise that their slogan of a “good life for all”, is just rhetoric and another empty promise. The only people enjoying the good life are the members of the Cabinet. The rest of the population is barely existing. The self-proclaimed “fit and proppa” AFC must now realise that not only are they considered unfit and improper but irrelevant as well. The AFC, like the Working People’s Alliance (WPA), is paying the price for failing to see itself as an equal and important partner in a coalition Government which clings to power by a mere one-seat majority in Parliament, believing instead that it is a junior partner and allowing the PNC to treat it with scorn, contempt and disrespect. The mere threat of a no-confidence motion against the PNC-controlled Government by either the AFC or the WPA, would have made the big bad PNC understand that its survival as a Government is dependent on equal treatment of its coalition partners. You have that power and its time you let the PNC know that. Had you taken the bull by its horns and asserted your importance and power, either of you could have taken the spotlight away from Bharrat Jagdeo and the PPP. However, all is not lost for there is still time to do the honourable thing as honourable members of the House. Even as I am aware that people only do the right thing when it is the easiest thing for them to do, I ask that you put country first and lend your support to the no-confidence motion that is to be tabled in Parliament by the PPP for there is so much to gain with relevance being numero uno.The joint press conference hastily called by the PNC and the AFC, (at the insistence of the PNC no doubt), is an indication that all is not well within the coalition, (nobody is missing the fact that the coalition comprises more than two parties only). The fear of abandonment looms large because of the manner in which the PNC has (ill) treated the other members of the coalition. There are justifiable reasons for the PNC to fear a no-confidence motion at this time. If all was well then by all means such a motion would have easily been defeated by a coalition Government which holds a majority in Parliament. Should the Government manage to defeat this motion, it is hoped that the other important members of the coalition finally realise that real power lies not with the PNC but real power resides in them, and they start to demand due respect.Finally, to the Government and its supporters who are making light of what the results of the LGE means and think that Bharrat Jagdeo is blowing hot air, that David Hinds is crazy, and voter’s apathy is to be blamed for your poor showing, then by all means forget about trying to stave off a valid no-confidence motion by the slimmest of majority in Parliament, call a snap election now and win yourselves a landslide. Until then, know this puts aspin on the results and no amount of jumbie arithmetic can deny the fact that 65 per cent of the people who voted have said enough is enough.Respectfully,Reginald Sookramlast_img read more

Pacific NorthWest creating 3-D modeling of potential environmental impacts

first_imgThese comments come after Minister Coleman had just returned from Malaysia to meet with the new chef executive of state-owned Petronas – the lead proponent of the LNG export terminal on Lelu Island near Prince Rupert.The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency launched its review of Pacific NorthWest in 2013, and since then there have been delay after delay as the regulator seeks more information about the affects this project will have on salmon habitat at Flora Bank. The latest delay, according to the Globe and Mail report, stems from the proponent preparing a 3-D model that is designed to predict potential changes to the environment once the terminal is constructed – emphasising impact to Flora Bank.A final investment decision on the project was originally set for 2014, but later switched to June of 2015. This latest delay could push that decision to the end of 2015 as the federal ruling isn’t expected to come out until August or September.- Advertisement -With 19 LNG proposals, industry experts seem to be in agreement that at most, a handful will become a reality. They say this is a result of B.C. trying to wiggle into an industry already filled by other countries like the U.S. and Australia, according to the Globe.NDP LNG critic Bruce Ralston says this is leading the provincial government to engage in private negotiations and keep tax deals a secret. He adds the province is vying to give itself greater taxation flexibility to attract LNG investment.First Nations have also expressed their concern of Pacific NorthWest negatively impacting Flora Bank.Advertisement Follow this link to read the entire Globe and Mail report.last_img read more

Trail riders use it or lose it

first_imgROWLAND HEIGHTS – Equestrians will be on horseback Sunday riding to save a local trail they believe may be in jeopardy. While park officials said the trail, which begins at Schabarum Park and extends to Cortez Park in West Covina, is not in danger, the ride is still scheduled. Carol Christiansen, a member of Equestrian Trails International, Corral 3, said she is worried that if the trail doesn’t get used and community concerns increase, it will lead to its closure. “Some people don’t want it here because they think it’s not being used and is not well-maintained,” she said. “But we definitely want it here.” Despite equestrian concerns, Damien Parker III, acting supervisor at Schabarum Park, said the trail is not going to be closed. “There are no plans for elimination for any of the trails in our jurisdiction,” Parker said. “Basically someone was petitioning that this trail be closed because it had some graffiti on it, but we have no plans to close it.” Christiansen said they will use the ride as an opportunity to let the community know that the trail is there and can be used for more than horseback riding. “We want people to be aware that it goes into some nice wilderness areas and it can be used by equestrians, hikers and bikers so they don’t need to go on the streets,” Christiansen said. David Sommers, press deputy for Supervisor Don Knabe’s office, said Knabe supports the ride. “Our open space in the San Gabriel Valley is very important to residents and the supervisor,” Sommers said. “The trail is a very important part of that open space, and the supervisor fully supports keeping it open.” The “Support the Trails” ride will begin at 9 a.m. Sunday at Schabarum Park. nisha.gutierrez@sgvn.com 626-962-8811, Ext. 2109 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
