STETHS victory ends Munro dream

first_img LITTLE ATTACK WESTERN BUREAU: Munro College fell just short in their quest for one of the automatic qualifying spots for the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)-FLOW daCosta Cup inter-zone round, as Demar James’ 63rd minute goal gave champions STETHS a 1-0 victory in Malvern yesterday. It was the forward’s sixth goal of the season and it accounted for STETHS’ 24th point in topping the competitive Zone E. Lacovia High’s 16 points were good enough for the second automatic spot, while Munro once again disappointed with 15 points and third. Coming into the do-or-die derby game, Munro showed little intent in attack, primarily in the first half, allowing their nemesis too much time to settle into their rhythm. But a less-than-perfect surface made it difficult for the Omar Wedderburn-coached team to get into more threatening positions in and around the opposition’s 18-yard area. However, it was a more competitive affair in the second half, with Munro showing plenty more urgency in attack. They came close to scoring in the 69th minute when Timor Lewis’ effort was saved at the near post by STETHS goalkeeper Kenroy Wallace. They again threatened after James scored, this time defender Deanjelo Brown was forced to clear off the line for STETHS, as Munro upped the tempo in search of the equaliser, knowing a draw would have taken them into second place in the zone on goal difference over Lacovia. That scenario would have been good enough to make the homesters advance, but the STETHS defenders were resolute. Wendell Downswell, STETHS’ technical director, said that his team can now refocus for the important inter-zone round from which the winners in each group will make the cash-rich FLOW Super Cup. “Now it’s serious business; this is where we usually pick up or game. The players are looking forward to this,” said Downswell.last_img read more

Hinds decry state of education sector

first_imgPolitical commentator and educator, Dr David Hinds has lamented the state of Guyana’s education sector, stressing that after a year in Government, the new Administration still has a lot of work to do.Dr David HindsSpeaking to Guyana Times recently, Hinds, a University Professor, said there was no doubt that the education sector in Guyana was in bad shape.He said while he applauded Education Minister, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine and some of the initiatives the Ministry has taken, he still believed that the question of illiteracy in society and the underpreparedness of young people in school required more than “bringing back music”.“It is more of a fundamental issue,” Dr Hinds said, noting that the WPA has always spoken of a “state of emergency” in the education sector, meaning that “shock treatment” should be administered to the sector.“So, in the final analysis, I would give the Government more of a mixed review. More positive than negative, but still feel that some of the negatives… [it] could have been signalled what it would do about them,” he noted.The Education Minister has always maintained that the education sector was indeed in need of reform. This need, he said, had led to the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry, which upon completion, it is hoped, would give the much needed answers and order that would take the sector forward.Dr Roopnaraine did say that the reform would not happen overnight as it required time to be implemented and enforced.“Based on everything we hear in the Commission, based on the audit findings we have on our desks, based on all of these things, we will be able to design an education reform process in the key areas that need to be addressed,” the Minister had said recently.Dr Roopnaraine pointed out that the education reform process could not be designed out of ideas but experiences and evidence, which would be gathered through the Inquiry.“We can’t design an educational reform process out of our heads. That’s something, I think, that really has to be based on the experience of people and the evidence that the Commission of Inquiry gets,” he stated.However, the Minister pointed out that the Commission did not have a narrow focus. Dr Roopnaraine reiterated his dissatisfaction with the fact that the schools and classrooms were almost exclusively devoted to academic instruction, noting that he wanted to see far more rounded education in the schools.“So, all of this will encompass the Inquiry. To what extent we believe that bringing music back into the school will produce a more rounded child, to what extent we believe that enhancing physical education and encouraging sports is going to result in a better educated person,” he pointed out.Another phenomenon that needs to be addressed, the Minister had stated, is the gender imbalance in the school system.“The young women are really outstripping the boys… by really quite a large margin. I think this is a problem for sociologists. I think we need to subject it [to] serious investigations and as I say, we must not run away with the idea that this is only affecting us here in Guyana.This is a global and regional phenomenon and we need to look at it in all its dimensions. It’s a complex issue and certainly one that deserves a lot of attention,” Dr Roopnaraine had declared.last_img read more

Lethem woman unconscious 3 months after surgery

first_imgMore than three months after having some gall stones removed via surgery, a 47-year-old woman of Lethem, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) is still to regain consciousness and her family members are worried sick that she may never recover. The woman’s condition has even caused her husband to be in and out of hospital, as his blood pressure has been soaring since her illness.Thelma RebeiroAccording to relatives, Thelma Rebeiro had first undergone a surgery at the Lethem Hospital after she was diagnosed with gall stones. However, something went wrong during the surgery and, as such, Rebeiro was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital. Four days later, another surgery was conducted. However, since the operation, the woman has not regained consciousness. In fact, according to family members, they were told by doctors that there was nothing more that they could do for her. The family said Rebeiro was later discharged from the hospital, still in an unconscious state. However, speaking to Guyana Times on Monday, the Hospital’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mitzy Campbell said that it was the family who requested that the woman be discharged.She said they had made plans for her to seek treatment in Boa Vista, Brazil. It was with that in mind that the request for discharge was granted. Rebeiro is mother to several children, most of whom live in neighbouring Brazil. However, the family were at a loss as to their next move as their loved one lay unconscious day after day.last_img read more

Praise God, the President, Healthcare Workers, International Community, Local Partners, the People!

first_imgThe doxology says “Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow . . .” Indeed, He deserves the praise for His deliverance of our nation and people from what was predicted to be a far worse disaster than we experienced, we Liberians and the people of our two other hardest hit neighbors,  Guinea and Sierra Leone.   We are grateful that the hundreds of thousands of deaths predicted by no less an authority than the World Health Organization (WHO) did not happen.A determined and heroic President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who led the battle against the deadly virus, is to be applauded and thanked for her successful appeal to the world that galvanized the international community including world leaders, to put forth a formidable arsenal of human and material resources to combat and contain the worst outbreak of the Ebola virus in history.  We believe that she was supernaturally imbued with the courage and faith to refuse to accept the WHO’s dooms day prediction that we would perish from the virus.  Instead, Ellen  galvanized our people to forsake age old traditions and adopt new habits that resulted in stamping out and containing the raging virus.Thank God for empowering also the healthcare workers, including those who paid the supreme sacrifice.   They overcame their initial fear and regrouped to ensure that more of us survived than succumbed to the deadly foe. We praise God, too, for raising up international partners—the United Nations and its many Agencies, including UNMEER, the United States, People’s Republic of China, European Union, the German, Norwegian and Nigerian governments, the Fula and Indian communities in Liberia.                Other partners include the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, African Development Bank, Economic Community of West African States, African Union, World Health Organization, Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF), Samaritan’s Purse (SP), Save the Children, the local banks, including the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL), United Bank of Africa (UBA), Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI), Ecobank and Direct Relief, among others. Immense commendation is due also to the Liberian people, reputed to be among the most resilient in the world.    Thanks to the local and international health teams and their clear and persistent messages, the people slowly but surely started listening and acting—washing hands,  avoiding touching, abandoning the age-old Liberian handshake and overcrowding.  Stern warnings against touching the dead and the deadly consequences of failing to report sick loved ones persisted, the people obeyed and slowly but surely the virus started receding. Foya, the first area hit from across the Guinea border in Lofa County, which later became an epi-center of the disease, soon started showing signs of a significant slow-down.  Then Montserrado, Grand Bassa and Grand Cape Mount counties erupted, but they, too, were soon brought under control.  Meanwhile, the International community, even though belatedly, mounted a robust response, led by the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) and U.S. President Barrack Obama and his over 3000 troops.  The troops, in collaboration with the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), built Ebola treatment units (ETUs) in all 15 counties.  The Chinese built one at the S.K.D. Sports Complex from which the only remaining case left in the country was discharged a week ago. Others were established by SP, MSF and the Liberian Government.Many local organizations, including the Liberian Council of Churches and mosques which offered prayers, and scores of Liberian NGOs helped not only with relief supplies, but also effective awareness campaigns.These were all a stellar demonstration of the power of unity of purpose and resources as a counter attack against any threat to humanity.  Above all, we give thanks to Almighty God, who answered the many prayers and blessed and empowered all who joined in the gallant fight to drive Ebola from our country.We know that this same Triune  God will continue to bless and prosper the efforts of the yet embattled people of Guinea and Sierra Leone, as they, too, struggle to defeat the virus and drive it completely out of the Mano River basin and the African continent.As President Sirleaf told the world during her recent visit abroad, Liberia is not free until Guinea and Sierra Leone are free.  So we all have to keep working, observing all the rules and praying until Ebola is completely and decisively driven out of the MRU basin and is made powerless to inflict such devastation anywhere else in the world. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Jury ponders Orozcos fate

first_imgMost involved in the murder trial thought the panel would need more time to come to a decision on Orozco’s ultimate fate, and whether it will entail a lifetime spent behind bars with no hope of parole or death by lethal injection. The one point attorneys on both sides made clear is the awesome responsibility the jurors now face. Prosecutor Lowell Anger listed dozens of reasons why the penalty should be nothing less than death, noting the calculated murder of Ortiz, a Diamond Bar father of two young boys and newlywed of three weeks, as well as Orozco’s alleged violent criminal history. “What is the appropriate punishment for someone who not only doesn’t show remorse, he revels in his notoriety … whose life is a moral failure \ so much destruction and pain?” Anger asked. Defense Attorney Stan Perlo made no excuses for his client, repeatedly telling the jury his presentation of mitigating factors was not meant to provide justification but merely to explain the circumstances that contributed to the crime, chiefly his client’s indoctrination into the gang lifestyle and his history of drug abuse. NORWALK – Life or death? That decision for convicted killer Jose Luis Orozco was put to a jury of seven men and five women Monday. The same jury took about four hours before finding the 29-year-old Hawaiian Gardens gang member guilty in the ambush murder of Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Jerry Ortiz last month. On March 20, Orozco was found guilty of first-degree murder, attempted murder and two weapons violations, as well as several special-circumstance allegations – murder of a peace officer, murder while lying in wait, murder to avoid arrest, and carrying out the crime to benefit his gang. “We are in no way telling you that that he is not an evil, bad \. … The deed itself is the crime,” Perlo said. “But there are some things to be considered in sparing his life.” Deliberations began at the Norwalk Superior Courthouse Monday afternoon. The jury asked for a DVD recording of the defendant about two weeks after the deputy’s murder before deliberations ended for the day. The DVD, which featured prominently earlier in the trial, showed a conversation Orozco had with two friends – a fellow gang member and a gang associate – while they were in a holding cell at the Bellflower Superior Court in July 2005. In the taped conversation, Orozco is laughing and joking about the publicity surrounding the shooting. On June 24, 2005, Ortiz was investigating a shooting that occurred a few days earlier when he chased Orozco into a Hawaiian Gardens apartment complex. As the gang investigator reholstered his weapon to talk to one of Orozco’s friends, a young mother with her small daughters and other adults inside her apartment, Orozco aimed his weapon through a crack in the front door and pulled the trigger. Perlo urged the jury not to dismiss the gravity of a sentence of a life in prison. The term penitentiary, he explained, was created on the idea of penitence; of providing a place in modern society where criminals would be forced to sit and consider their actions. “Each of you must decide if each of you is willing to put your finger on the button of death,” Perlo said. The jury is scheduled to return to deliberations at 9 a.m. today. (562) 499-1261. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Everton boss Allardyce plans for future despite fan unrest

first_img0Shares0000Everton manager Sam Allardyce is planning for the future © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 27 – Everton manager Sam Allardyce said Friday he is making plans for next season at the club despite stinging criticism from fans over his direct style of football.The former England boss took the helm in November, pulling Everton away from relegation danger to the comfort of mid-table safety. Speaking to the press ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game at Huddersfield, Allardyce said: “We discussed plans for next season yesterday with (club owner) Farhad (Moshiri). We have some clarity moving forward now.”Allardyce, who replaced the sacked Ronald Koeman, described his tenure so far as “overall pretty satisfying”.“You always want to strive to do better but because we started my reign so well, we built up great expectation it might be even better,” he said. “We’ve achieved a good way forward in the space of five months.“It’s been pretty satisfying. One always wants your team to do better, to win more, to achieve more but overall pretty satisfying.”Allardyce drew comparisons between his coaching style and that of Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone, who on Thursday led his 10-man team to a 1-1 draw at Arsenal in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final.“Entertainment is the (mastering) of defence in Europe — Simeone,” the Toffees boss said. “Is that entertainment?“He’s called the master of defence. I’m called defensive and negative. We’ve not only achieved the goal (of staying up), we’ve played some extremely entertaining games.”Earlier this month, Allardyce dismissed a survey sent to fans asking to grade his performance out of 10 as a mistake on the part of the club’s marketing director, who he said does not “understand” how football works.As part of the questionnaire, supporters were asked whether they agree with the statement of “I have a high level of trust in the current manager and coaching staff at Everton e.g. in making the right decisions to get the best out of the team.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘From Gerrard and Suarez to Milner and Ings – imagine Arsenal buying Ings!’ – Fans react to Liverpool signing

first_img Danny Ings has signed for Liverpool Liverpool have signed Danny Ings from Burnley.Will he be a good acquisition? It’s fair to say that opinion is mixed.A talented attacker, Ings is far from the sort of stellar signing Liverpool fans crave.Coming just a few days after former Reds striker Luis Suarez clinched the treble for Barcelona, it throws Liverpool’s current transfer policy into a possibly harsh light.But judgement should be reserved until the 22-year-old has time to settle in at Anfield, although there has already been plenty of reaction… 1last_img read more


first_imgDeclan Reed finally made it to the top of the pile at a windy Buncrana 5K on Wednesday night, notching his first win at the Inishowen venue.He was ahead by just three seconds from Spartans club mate Greg Roberts, 15m 10s to 15m 13s, with Finn Valley’s Barry Harron claiming third on 15m 27s.Natasha Adams of Letterkenny AC belied the conditions with an emphatic winning time of 16m 37s ahead of the Spartans duo Catherine Whoriskey who posted a 17m 48s PB and Jackie McMonagle on a gutsy 18m 57s.Close to 200 finishers were recorded at the popular 5K sponsored as ever by Sean Furey Insurances with runners from all the NW clubs joined on the start line by visitors from North Belfast Harriers, Ballymena Runners, Ballydrain Harriers, Springwell, Dromore and Lagan Valley among others.Reed was pushed all the way by club mate Roberts and only got away inside the final kilometre but he was delighted to add his name to the distinguished winners list at the prestigious Buncrana race. The swirling wind made really quick times difficult but the duel between the leading pair kept the spectators happy and Roberts fine run, just days before he toes the line in Sunday’s Walled City Marathon may raise expectations of the Spartan as he prepares to mix it with the Kenyan runners at the weekend.Natasha Adams ran just two seconds slower than her 2014 time, a brilliant effort in Wednesday’s conditions. She took full advantage of the absence of Teresa Doherty and Anne Marie McGlynn to post a very impressive win and demonstrate once again her genuine talent. Catherine Whoriskey smashed her PB , going under 18 minutes for the first time to announce her return to the big time podiums. Jackie McMonagle too had a good one and was very happy to claim a notable third place finish, her best ever in this race.AGE GROUP WINNERSLetterkenny’s Jane McGinley , fourth female finisher, was the top F35; Karen Cutliffe and Claire Connor of the Spartans were top F40 and F50 respectively; Ballydrain Harrier Debbie Matchett took the F45 award and Foyle Valley’s Catherine Moran and Dromore’s Mary Mackin grabbed the F55 and F60 wins. in the Male age groups Foyle Valley’s Roy McGilloway impressed again finishing just outside the top ten with a terrific 16m 08s,; Letterkenny’s Ivan Toner was the M35 winner and the Spartans pair of Dermot McElhinney and Colin Roberts topped the M40 and M45 categories. Newcomer McElhinney impressed many with a big PB of 16m 07s and could be one to watch.Two locals Tony Grant of Foyle Valley and the Spartans Peter Lilburn were the leading M55 and M60, Lilburn’s 19m 11s a good run. Two visitors Brian McKee, unattached, and Lagan Valley’s Desmond Brownlee took the M50 and M65 prizes and in the four to score team races Letterkenny pipped the City of Derry quartet of Catherine Whoriskey, Jackie McMonagle, Sarah Kivelehan who ran a 19m 17s PB and Janeen Leese. The male Spartans however did the business as Declan reed, Greg Roberts , Dermot McElhinney and Colin Roberts combined for the win ahead of Finn Valley.Place BIB Name Club Category Finish Time1 398

Everyone is invited. The memories are waiting.”  DONEGAL RALLY 2016 DATES CONFIRMED was last modified: October 16th, 2015 by John2Share 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:2016dates announceddonegal rallylast_img read more
