A complete forensic audit of City Hall’s books needed

first_imgDear Editor,There has quite recently been much rumpus about the Government of Guyana renting a five-bedroom house for 0,000 per month for a junior minister, along with covering unlimited VAT, inclusive of electricity consumption.And one can understand why, as the Government is calling on the citizens to tighten their belts, to conserve and to reuse stationery, etc. But, quite frankly, this opulence pales in comparison to the overindulgence occurring at City Hall.How could one cry out for paying 0,000 per month for a luxurious mansion in a swanky neighbourhood, when the Council doles out a whopping ,000 per month, which has now been increased to over ,000 per month, for a simple plastic portable toilet each?Should citizens not be concerned about the first class travel around the world by municipal officials, who are nowhere near ministerial level? Should they not be concerned about officials having bodyguards as if they are prime ministers or presidents? Static security at their residences; chauffeurs, gardeners, personal assistants and many attendants?Should citizens not be worried about municipal officials wasting scarce resources on pointless retreats to grand resorts; hosting pageants, hat shows and expos whilst the ordinary staff members there cannot get their vacation allowances or salaries on time?When will a complete forensic audit of City Hall’s books be done?Sincerely,Mark Roopanlast_img read more

With season winding down, Knicks avoid new franchise low for wins

first_imgSarah Geronimo’s ‘Tala’ enters Billboard’s world digital song sales chart With one game remaining, the Knicks (17-64) can only tie for the worst season in franchise history. A loss to the Detroit Pistons, who are seeking to lock up a playoff spot, would give New York a record matching only its ugly 2014-15 campaign.“Our guys really wanted this game. I issued a challenge to them with seven games to go, just kind of look at how the season was coming down and it kind of played out like a playoff series, so I challenged them to use this as our playoffs, seven games and we got down 0-1, we ended up down 1-3 and now we’ve won two in a row to have a home-court Game 7 on our court,” Fizdale said. “I’m really trying to train their minds on what you have to do to be a team that plays in the playoffs.

Rodgers hails outstanding Lallana as Liverpool’s top four hunt begins

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers hailed his side’s “outstanding” performance against Swansea but reserved special praise for Adam Lallana, whose brace helped secure a 4-1 win at Anfield.The former Southampton captain initially struggled to find his role at the Merseyside club following his £25million summer move, but has flourished in recent games.Lallana showed the class which attracted Liverpool to him in the first place with a vibrant display on Monday evening, scoring his side’s second and third goals.The latter was particularly crucial after Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson had pulled it back to 2-1 after full-back Alberto Moreno opened the scoring.“I am very pleased,” said Rodgers. “He is a wonderfully-gifted player and it was a big move coming here from Southampton where he was the captain.“For all the players coming in to a club this size it is difficult because you never know with the expectations.“They are now starting adapting to that, to what we are doing here and where we want to go.“It is a very young team, with an average age 22-23, so I was very pleased with the overall performance of Adam. He got his reward for a great performance and a great work rate.”Victory over Garry Monk’s Swans saw the Reds end 2014 with back-to-back league wins, and also reduce the gap to the top four to just five points.And Rodgers believes his side will continue to rise up the standings as they continue to successfully address the issues which have plagued the first half of their season.The boss added: “I am very pleased with how we are developing. We are finding a way to get that creativity whilst remaining solid and compact.“Apart from a ten-minute spell after we got the second goal it was a real dominant performance.”One incident which could put a dampener on the result was young Reds star Raheem Sterling’s second half spat with Federico Fernandez, which saw the forward flap a hand at the defender’s head, which could yet result in retrospective punishment.That is a fate which almost certainly awaits former Reds midfielder Jonjo Shelvey after he appeared to fling an elbow into Emre Can’s face.“I have seen the two. The cameras will probably show it 100 times tomorrow and we will get bored of watching it,” said Rodgers.“Jonjo has flung his arm out and caught Emre on the side of his head.“Young Raheem’s incident, the centre-half has slapped him on the side of the head and he has put his hand up and slapped him on the side of the head.“I think the referee has called both right and got on with the game.” Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana celebrates his goal againt Swansea 1last_img read more

The car was then towed about seven miles to the impound yard, where it sat overnight. The woman was found beneath an air bag that had deployed during the crash, police said. “There are a lot of questions and we don’t have all of the answers,” Lopez said, adding that authorities are “conducting an investigation surrounding this unfortunate incident.” An autopsy found that Williams died of multiple blunt force injuries, Lt. Fred Corral, a coroner’s spokesman, said Monday. “The doctors may have a conclusion after the autopsy if this person died instantly or not,” coroner’s spokesman Lt. John Kades said. “That’s a possibility, but there’s no way to tell or predict.” Police said they found the body of an elderly woman in a vehicle a day after her son was pulled from the same car that had been involved in a crash. Shirley Lee Williams, 72, of Paso Robles was discovered Sunday in the front passenger seat at a tow yard in the San Fernando Valley. It only came to the attention of investigators after family members said there were two relatives missing and not one. “We conducted a follow-up to the tow yard, and we discovered the woman inside the vehicle,” said police Officer Mike Lopez said. “She was dead.” Police were trying to determine how paramedics and others had left behind the woman at Saturday’s accident scene. The vehicle carrying the woman and her son hit a parked car in a bank parking lot and then crashed into a building, authorities said. last_img read more

Methodists plan new church

first_img “Our church has had phenomenal membership growth over this last half-century,” said Powell, who has been pastor since 1981. “It’s now inadequate for the increasing physical and spiritual needs of this burgeoning community. Now we’re moving forward in anticipation of even greater growth.” On Saturday, the congregation will begin its 50th jubilee celebration with a semiformal banquet. The jubilee theme is “honoring the past and planning for the future.” Festivities will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday in The Oasis Banquet Hall, 2520 E. Palmdale Blvd. Organizers decided to make the banquet a more memorable and meaningful affair by stressing the dress-up factor, said celebration team co-chairwoman are Nneenah Frazier. “Everybody needs to do that once in awhile in honor of an event as big as this one,” she said. “We don’t expect everyone to show up in black tie, tuxes and ball gowns, but we do want jackets, ties and dress pants on the men and ‘going-out’ dresses on the ladies. No jeans or T-shirts, please.” Reservations for the banquet must be made by Tuesday by calling (661) 267-2239 or (661) 722-5470. Choice of entree – beef, chicken or fish – should be made at the time of the reservation. At 3 p.m. Saturday, members may meet with Southern California/Arizona Conference Presiding Bishop Mary Ann Swenson, who will be on hand to look over the site of the congregation’s proposed new church site. In keeping with the jubilee observance, on Sunday, Jan. 29, there will be three services, 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Guest clergy at those services will include the original pastor, the Rev. Gerard Kaye, and other former pastors, the Rev. Inman Moore and Rev. Leo Shu. “It’s been a challenge that we’ve met and are proud of,” added Powell. “We think we’ve made many positive contributions in the past, but our new church will allow us to serve both the local and global communities even better. We’re really looking forward to that prospect.” Menus for the week at the senior life nutrition sites in Lancaster and Palmdale have been announced. All meals include bread, margarine and coffee, tea or milk, for a suggested donation of $2. Monday: Hot roast beef sandwich, soup, mashed potatoes, winter squash, marinated salad, cheesecake. Tuesday: Fish fillet, au gratin potatoes, stewed tomatoes, egg drop soup, coleslaw, gelatin with fruit. Wednesday: Roast turkey, bread dressing, peas and carrots, marinated beets, orange.

Huge Madrid swap deal, exciting goalkeeper news and more must know Blues gossip

first_img 5 5 2. Joe Hart to replace Thibaut Courtois? – The question is, though, who could replace Courtois? In the same report from The Sun, it’s claimed Conte could make a move for Hart, who has heard about life under the Italian manager from his current team mates at Torino. Chelsea’s manager also wants to add more homegrown talent to his senior squad. Antonio Conte is building for the future at Chelsea.The Blues are the team to catch at the top of the Premier League table, but – as any good manager is – he isn’t completely satisifed by his options.Rumours continue to swirl over who the Italian boss wants to recruit and there are plenty of exciting deals being mooted.So, get up to date on the latest transfer gossip on Chelsea by scrolling through the gallery above. 1. Thibaut Courtois to get his Real Madrid move if Alvaro Morata is part of the deal? Read all about this transfer rumour below, then click the arrow above, right, to get up to date on more Blues news – Antonio Conte, The Sun report, would grant Courtois a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer, but only if he can get Morata in exchange. Conte is understood to view the Spaniard as the ideal striker for his desired style of play, and his arrival could pave the way for Diego Costa to make his move to China. Courtois, meanwhile, is said to be a priority target for Real. 5 3. Celtic’s Craig Gordon to replace Bournemouth target Asmir Begovic? – But Hart isn’t the only goalkeeper being eyed by Conte. Celtic’s Gordon has, according to the Telegraph, joined Diego Lopez and Galatasaray’s Fernando Muslera on the Blues boss’ wish list in a move that could happen this month. Asmir Begovic, backup to Courtois, is a target for Bournemouth, with Chelsea having rejected a £10m bid. The former Stoke City man understandably wants regular first team football and may push for a deal to go through in the next few days, leaving Conte in need of a new number two. 5 5 4. Chelsea to launch £56m bid for Arturo Vidal? – Vidal to Chelsea is a rumour that’s showing few signs of fading. Reports from Spain suggest Conte is eyeing a handful of major signings in the summer and is planning a big-money move for the Bayern Munich midfielder. El Mercurio state that the Chilean has given a £56m price tag by his Bundesliga club, however. 5. Blues fail with £27m bid for ‘wonderkid midfielder’? – It seems Conte wants to strengthen his midfield and has been impressed by Atalanta’s Franck Kessie. At 20 years old, Kessie has already made 10 appearances for the Ivory Coast and his powerful presence has inevitably led to comparisons to Yaya Toure. The Daily Star claim the Blues have had an offer of £21m up front, rising to £27m with add-ons, rejected.last_img read more

Despite playing most of the second half with 14 players following the dismissal of their centre  half-back, Michael Duffy’s team showed commendable character to secure victory late on with a goal near the end.In his acceptance speech, team captain Oran McDonagh dedicated the win to the late Cllr Margaret Gormley from Sligo who passed away recently.Listen to the postmatch reaction of Sligo minor manager Michael Duffy, who spoke to Ocean FM Sport’s Cathal Mullaney after Saturday’s win:Audio Playerhttps://www.oceanfm.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Minors-Michael-Duffy-13042019.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.
