Government is now desperate and scared (Pt 1)

first_imgDear Editor,Each time there is a sitting of the National Assembly, I would habitually take a walk to Demico House across the street, and to parts of Stabroek Market to interact with vendors and laborers during the lunch-break. I do this because I need to know how decisions we make in Parliament affect the lives of ordinary Guyanese. Very often they would comment that Ministers of Government are so aloof, they would never do what I’m doing until they’re campaigning for votes.This was evident when the entire Cabinet descended upon the Stabroek Market square, inviting vendors to “meet and greet your Minister” on Christmas Eve after they were earlier declared persona non grata.But they were scared from before. On the day of the No-confidence Motion, they were expecting thousands of supporters to amass in front of Parliament building, but only managed to scrape the barrel down to a disappointing hardcore few.Now that this elitist group of APNU+AFC Ministers need people, they’re now shamelessly asking them to come out in defence of the Government, the same Government that neglected them for three and a half years.Now we see Ministers dancing and partying with DJs when not too long ago, these same DJs were being hounded and forced to shut down the music by the 2:00 am curfew.The point has already been made by former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, other prominent lawyers and the Guyana Bar Association on the validity of the No-confidence Motion as it relates to Nigel Hughes’ fuzzy maths.I will only ask if those who now question the passage of this motion would have objected and demanded that Government needed 34 votes to defeat the motion had all 33 members of Government voted against it. I guarantee, this would never have happened and Nigel Hughes would not have come up with his jumbie equation to stir-up trouble.Immediately following the fall of the coalition Government, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo held a Press Conference in which he admitted that the opposition’s motion “was approved by a majority of all the elected members of the House.” This admission of defeat was echoed by President Granger and several Cabinet Ministers.Editor, you may recall that in 2014 Carl Greenidge, until recent, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, said in an interview, that “because a no-confidence vote in the Government is a major issue over the performance of the Government, the behaviour of the Government and the breaking of the law by the Government, it needs to be followed by the resignation of the Government and the calling of national elections.” But I wonder if he shares the same view now.Despite previous admissions that the government has fallen, we’re now being told that Cabinet is looking at the legal implications, and is likely to go to court to seek a reversal of the no-confidence vote taken in favor of the Parliamentary Opposition. The audacity of this Government to still have Cabinet meetings, flies in the face of Article 106 (6) of our Constitution which explicitly directs the entire Cabinet to resign.Article 106 (6) of our Constitution is unambiguous. It clearly states that “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence.” This government has fallen, the President, the Cabinet and rest of Ministers must resign now! And since the APNU+AFC are so convinced that they have done great things for Guyana and its people, they should have no problem calling new elections now.Sincerely,Harry GillPPP/C Member ofParliamentlast_img read more

Car-to-car shooting leaves one dead

first_imgPICO RIVERA – An adult Latino motorist was shot and killed in the predawn hours Monday at the corner of Slauson Avenue and Rosemead Boulevard, sheriff’s officials said. Shots were heard about 3:10 a.m. in the surrounding neighborhoods. Citizens, gathered in front of Jim’s Charbroiled Burgers in the 7800 block of Rosemead Boulevard, said they heard gun activity. “I heard a real loud bang,” said Helen Lavario, 72, who lives about a block away. “It woke me up, and then about 10 minutes later I heard a helicopter.” Just after 10 a.m., the body was taken away from the scene by the Los Angeles Coroner and a few minutes later the burgundy car, with a broken windshield and broken driver’s side windows, was towed away. An approximate three block radius was closed off to traffic on Slauson and Rosemead and smaller, surrounding neighborhoods until after 12:30 p.m. while detectives conducted their investigation, according to sheriff’s officials. “I’m not surprised by the shooting,” said Lavario, who has lived in the city for 55 years. “But the shootings usually happen on Beverly and Rosemead (boulevards),” she said. Pico Rivera public works and Southern California Edison crews worked to restore power to the traffic signs at the intersection. Businesses in and around the area were closed. sandra.molina@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Margaret Gordon releases second fantastical fairy book

first_imgDonegal woman Margaret Gordon has launched her second children’s book. The Storm, which is out this week, follows Margaret’s debut short story called The Fairies of Drumboe Woods.Margaret, a former social worker, was inspired by folklore and her local area to create magical stories with special lessons for young readers. The Storm is now available on amazon.co.uk and amazon.com. Copies will soon be on sale locally at The Four Masters Bookshop Donegal Town, Bookmark (formerly Easons) in Letterkenny and in Ballybofey. The Storm will re-introduce the reader to the familiar Drumboe Woods of the Twin Towns, its resident fairies, and a local girl called Grace.But when a storm strikes the Finn Valley and the river bursts its banks, Grace’s beloved woods are flooded. Grace and her grandfather must go to save the fairy queen. Margaret said: “The books underlying theme is one of conservation of our wildlife habitats and also conservation of our relationships within families, communities and nations.“Us humans depend on each other to thrive, in much the same was that the sun, the earth, the animals and the environment have relationships that support each other. We all need to belong to something bigger than ourselves.”The overall theme of the story is that caring relationships are important, between families, friends, and even with people we have not met. Grace is becoming aware of the world around her – locally in her own environment, but also on a worldwide scale. Through her new school friends, Amira and Adam, who have fled their war-torn country of origin, to find shelter and safety in Ireland, Grace is finding out that not all children are happy and some are afraid, lonely and without a place to call home. Grace’s eye-opening friendships and her close relationship with her Granda Benny intend to share an important message with young readers. Margaret added: “In a small way, some of Amira and Adam’s experience are mirrored in Grace’s small world, when an unexpected storm and flood places the local fairies at risk of homelessness and displacement. The Storm emphasises the view that as human beings we depend on each other to thrive and at one time or another, we all need shelter and a front door to close out the storms.” The Storm is expected to be another popular launch for Margaret, as the magic and message of The Fairies of Drumboe Woods resonated with many local families earlier this year.Margaret Gordon releases second fantastical fairy book was last modified: October 27th, 2019 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:bookDrumboe Woodsfinn valleymargaret gordonthe stormtwin townslast_img read more

New school won’t block area views

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Trustee Donita Winn described the school as a scaled-back version of other local schools. “It’s heartbreaking to spend $120 million and get a portion of what other schools have. It’s hard to do, but it’s reality,” Winn said. Officials hope the new campus can take in its first class in 2008. To keep costs down, the school will not have a stadium or a theater, and there will be one gymnasium rather than two. There will, however, be an athletic field and a track. “There are spaces for those things on the site. We laid it out for future development at this point. We are going to continue with the concept of joint-use facilities,” Beattie said. The school’s football games will likely be played either at Knight High School, where a stadium is planned, or at Littlerock High School, officials said. LANCASTER – Antelope Valley Union High School District officials promised to keep neighbors in mind when the district’s ninth high school is built in southeast Palmdale. The still-unnamed school, to be located south of Pearblossom Highway near Avenue T-8 and 47th Street East on property the district acquired in a land swap this summer, will be terraced against a sloping hillside to avoid blocking neighbors’ views. “We will terrace this campus so that at the upper end we will have one-story buildings, and two-story buildings will be at a little lower level,” trustee Al Beattie said. “It should provide most people who live there their view. By terracing, we won’t be obstructing views with two-story buildings. The higher buildings will sit at a lower elevation.” District officials hope the school will cost about $115 million, but note that construction-cost increases could raise the price to $120 million or more. To pay for the district’s ninth school and for a 10th to be built either in southwest Palmdale or northwest Lancaster, officials may place another bond measure on the November 2006 ballot. Deputy Superintendent Jeff Foster said the ninth school will take design cues from Eastside High School, the district’s latest campus under construction, but will have its own unique look. “This will have a quad look – a central court, so to speak – but most of the classroms will be single-story,” Foster said. “We want to have a separate look.” Karen Maeshiro, (661) 267-5744 karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Latest: Chelsea 0 Liverpool 0 (Agg: 1-1)

first_imgChelsea face extra time in the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge, where if the score remains the same they will progress to the final on the away goals rule.The Blues have twice been denied a penalty – and they lost Cesc Fabregas after he picked up an injury soon after the interval.With the tie finely poised after a 1-1 draw at Anfield in the first leg, they looked to attack from the start and might have had a penalty as early as the fifth minute.Diego Costa got the better of Mamadou Sakho on the right-hand side and picked out Willian, whose shot was blocked by Lucas with the ball hitting the Liverpool man’s hand as he threw himself in the way.At the other end, Raheem Sterling scampered towards goal after Kurt Zouma had misjudged a long ball, but the centre-back recovered to tackle him after Sterling had gone past Chelsea skipper John Terry.The hosts were soon back on the attack and Costa appeared to be fouled in the box by Martin Skrtel, but again referee Michael Oliver ignored appeals for a spot-kick.With Terry back in the side after being rested for Saturday’s FA Cup debacle against Bradford, Blues boss Jose Mourinho made a bold decision by retaining youngster Zouma and instead dropping Gary Cahill to the bench.And Chelsea were caused some problems at the back in the first half, twice relying on keeper Thibaut Courtois to prevent Liverpool going ahead.The Belgian saved superbly from Alberto Moreno following a clever pass from Steven Gerrard.Soon afterwards Courtois was called into action again, this time saving with his legs to keep out an effort from Philippe Coutinho, who showed great skill to get himself into a shooting position but ought to have then scored.Chelsea were dealt a blow four minutes into the second half when Fabregas was hurt after colliding with Terry as both went for the ball. The Spaniard was replaced by Ramires.But they stayed on the front foot and Eden Hazard fired wide after a brilliant run saw him ride three challenges near the edge of the area.Costa then saw a deflected shot stopped by keeper Simon Mignolet, who also saved at his feet after a ricochet led to the ball dropping to the Chelsea forward.Tonight’s winners will face Tottenham or Sheffield United in the final.Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Filipe Luis (Azpilicueta 78); Matic, Fabregas (Ramires 50); Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.
