Residents call for 52/74 NDC Chairman’s resignation

first_imgResidents of Number Naught Village on the Corentyne, Berbice are calling for the resignation of the Chairman and Overseer of the 52/74 Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC).There are reports that the acting Regional Chairman Dennis DeRoop had to quell an intended protest by residents after they unearthed what they claimed was corruption by two NDC officials.Following the allegations, the acting Regional Chairman met with the NDC, but only a few councillors and the Vice Chairman attended. The NDC Chairman was absent.There are also reports which suggest that the NDC had taken a decision to construct a culvert and had gotten estimates from prequalified contractors.CIIP workers engaged on the projectHowever, the son of the NDC Works Committee Chairman was given the contract, and he reportedly used Community Infrastructure Improvement Project (CIIP) workers, who were assigned to clean drains in the community and who are being paid through the Government, to carry out the private contract during regular working hours.One of the NDC Councillors Ahmad Rajab told <<>> that the contractor was using old zinc sheets to form a revetment and a section of the street caved in forcing him to yield to the residents and stop the project.He said when he arrived he was shocked to see what was taking place. “There was no contractor and the workers claimed that the Works Committee Chairman’s son is the contractor. He is not a licensed contractor, and they were using CIIP workers to do the job. They broke the dam in half and the residents are suffering. They have all the stuff in the middle of the road and it is affecting traffic and pedestrians. I say it is incompetence on the part on the NDC because both the NDC Chairman and the Works Committee Chairman were standing right there when the work was going on.”The acting Regional Chairman told this publication that the NDC may have underestimated the project and attempted to undertake it themselves.Prime Ministerial Regional Representative Gobin Harbhajan, who resides in the NDC area, said residents went to his home and demanded that he visit the site where someone might have been trying to pocket taxpayers’ dollars.He said he was amazed to learn that the NDC Chairman allowed something like that. “It is not a regular culvert.”Meanwhile, DeRoop said the project has been stopped, the regional engineer has been asked to produce an estimate for the project and the contract would be put out to tender.DeRoop said the regional administration took note that the CIIP workers who wereThe current state of the unfinished projecton the project do not have the capacity to undertake the construction of a culvert.“Residents have gone so far as to make allegations against the Overseer and the NDC Chairman. I think that the people are very upset because it is the village next to the NDC office. This is one of the NDCs that is lacking in performance. There are many times that I have to make interventions within the 52/74 NDC. I think the Chairman is very weak and the Overseer is doing his own thing sometimes.”DeRoop said even though the NDC is equipped to the extent that it has its own Superintendent of Works, the regional administration is forced to visit to resolve minor issues. DeRoop is of the opinion that the 52/74 NDC has not been fulfilling its obligation to residents. (Andrew Carmichael)last_img read more

Fulham appoint former Watford boss Slavisa Jokanovic as Kit Symons’ successor

first_img1 Fulham have named Slavisa Jokanovic as their new head coach.Jokanovic’s appointment comes 49 days after the west Londoners sacked Kit Symons.The process to replace Symons has been fraught with challenges but, after Peter Grant and then Stuart Gray took temporary charge, the club have belatedly announced that they have agreed to bring Jokanovic from Maccabi Tel Aviv as the permanent successor to the axed Welshman.The news came minutes after the Israeli league leaders won 5-0 at home to Hapoel Kiryat Shmona and means the former Serbia international returns to English football after just six months away.Jokanovic last season led Watford to automatic promotion to the Premier League, only to leave Vicarage Road after talks over a new deal collapsed.“I am extremely proud to announce that Slavisa Jokanovic will be joining Fulham as our First Team Head Coach,” owner Shahid Khan said in a statement.“We considered many quality candidates for what we considered to be one of the best positions in football, and I personally interviewed most of them.“While the search was time-consuming and painstaking at times, I knew that when the process was complete that Fulham would have the best man possible for this opportunity and challenge.“Slavisa’s credentials and passion for the job rose to the top through every stage of this process, and we cannot wait to welcome him to Motspur Park and Craven Cottage to get things going in the right direction for the second half of the season.” Slavisa Jokanovic last_img read more

McGEE EXCITED AS DONEGAL STARS FLY DOWN UNDER

first_imgHE is now an All-Star of the game, now Donegal star Neil McGee is relishing representing his country Down Under in the International Rules series.Neil may have been celebrating last night – but as part of Anthony Tohill’s travelling party, he is excited with the honour of playing for his country and playing with some of football’s greats.“It is a brilliant experience working with the likes of Anthony Tohill, Kieran McGeeney, Mick McGowan, the fitness trainer, Sean Og De Paor and Kevin O’Brien from Wicklow and playing with some of the best players in the country,” said Neil. “We have been training hard and putting in a lot of work over the last six weeks since we were brought together by Anthony Tohill.“Anthony did not hold any trials this year; he just called up a group of 34 players at first and he eventually whittled it down to 23, and thankfully I made the cut and I’m in the squad.“The emphasis in training is mainly on physical contact with a lot of concentration on the tackle. It is a big change from what I was doing with Donegal, but I must say I’m enjoying it.”McGEE EXCITED AS DONEGAL STARS FLY DOWN UNDER was last modified: October 22nd, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:All StardonegalGAAneil mcgeeRules Serieslast_img read more

Everton new Bramley-Moore Dock stadium plans delayed and reportedly downsized

first_imgEverton’s move to their new stadium has been delayed until 2023/24.And it is claimed the new ground’s capacity will be significantly less than fans were hoping for when plans were originally put forward. A three-week public consultation will begin on November 15 and seek to build broad support for the club’s plans for a new home within the city’s historic docks, as well as the proposed regeneration of Goodison Park.Everton estimate the two projects combined would deliver a £1billion boost to the city’s economy and create 15,000 jobs for local people, 12,000 of them during construction.Having done extensive outreach with their own fans, the club must now persuade the public at large of the merits of their proposals, which have been packaged under the title ‘The People’s Project’.“This consultation marks a very significant moment as we progress with this project,” Everton chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale said.“We would like as many people as possible – and not just football fans – to take part and let us know their views.”The consultation, an essential part of the planning application the club intend to submit in the second half of next year, will see an exhibition about the proposals visit eight locations around the city region between November 15 and December 1, while a new website will allow people to register their views. Everton’s new stadium will be in the heart of Liverpool’s historic docks (Image: The People’s Project) 4 Everton’s new stadium site is only two miles away from Goodison Park Goodison Park has been Everton’s home for 126 years Bramley-Moore Dock sits inside Liverpool’s World Heritage Site (Image: The People’s Project) 4 4 At this stage, the consultation will be on the broad principles of Everton’s proposals. The club are yet to decide on a specific design or capacity for the stadium – plans which will then be the subject of a second public consultation next year.“We know everyone is very keen to see images of what the stadium might look like and we look forward to sharing them next year,” stadium development director Colin Chong said.“We will abide by a careful and considered process that respects all stakeholders’ interests. This is a multi-faceted project and it is important that we do everything required to ensure our planning application, when it’s made, stands the best chance of success.”Everton settled on Bramley-Moore Dock as their preferred site last year, and have spent months working on plans they insist will be in keeping with the area’s historic status. 4 The Toffees are planning to build a £500million new home on the Bramley-Moore Dock, which sits inside Liverpool’s World Heritage Site, to help compete with their red rivals.However, their plans have been set back by a year after the club launched a one-year public consultation process to get fans on board.It means Everton will not move into their new stadium until at least the beginning of the 2023/24 season – a year latest than originally suggested.And, according to a report by the Daily Mirror, it is claimed the new ground’s capacity is unlikely to be anywhere near the 63,000-plus supporters have been campaigning for and is more likely to be in the 52,000-55,000 region.That’s still a big improvement on Goodison’s 39,500 and would see them approach the capacity of Liverpool’s Anfield stadium, which has been boosted to over 54,000 with their redevelopment of the main stand. “Everton is committed to delivering an authentic football stadium which responds to Liverpool’s World Heritage Site designation,” Barrett-Baxendale added. “The plans we are developing will respect the historic features of the site and complement its surroundings.“The rich history and connections between the old docker community and the city’s football family are inseparable.“A move to the city’s North Docks will be very poignant for many of our supporters who will have had family members work there and will give them a chance to enjoy a part of cultural Liverpool that has not been open to the city for decades.”last_img read more

The vessel began its journey from Liverpool two days earlier.Among the first to board at Killybegs were Martyn Smith and his wife, Rachel, originally from Essex but now living in Tallanstown, Co Louth. Martyn, who is RNLI operations manager for Ireland, is no stranger to Killybegs and the north west.The couple are taking the cruise as a delayed 25th wedding anniversary celebration and hope to visit relatives in Canada.“We didn’t want to fly so I Googled cruises leaving Ireland and this came up”, he explained. “We just said why not.”Along with others going aboard the “Black Watch”, Martyn and Rachel spent the previous night in the Tara Hotel to await the arrival of the ship at 2.30 on Saturday. Another passanger boarding at Killybegs was Dubliner, Dermot Milner. And it wasn’t his first time in Killybegs either. “I used to go angling so I know Killybegs quite well”, he said.He spotted the offer in an advertisement by his travel agent, John Galligan, in Sandyford. “I travelled with Saga Lines before”, he said. “It’s handy having everything arranged.” On that cruise, he departed from Dublin and returned to Belfast.“I visited the Western Isles of Scotland and up to Norway. I like to stick to the North Atlantic”, he explained.Another happy couple going aboard were bus driver, Michael O’Boyle and wife, Margaret, from Galway. “We had been on a few Fred Olsen cruises with James McGinley Travel”, said. “We thought this would be a good one.”The cruise left Killybegs for St. John’s, the capital of Newfoundland, Canada, and was also scheduled to visit the island of St. Pierre et Miquelon, described as “the last remnant of France’s once large territory on that continent”, along with Sydney, Nova Scotia, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Red Bay, Labrador, before returning to Belfast.

RENOWNED CHILDREN’S AUTHOR EOIN COLFER SET TO TOUR DONEGAL

first_imgFEATURES: Laureate na nÓg Eoin Colfer’s national storytelling tour, Once Upon A Place, will be visiting Donegal for a three-day tour of the mainland and islands, from Thursday 24th to Saturday 26th September. Eoin, author of the Artemis Fowl series for young readers, is bringing a group of storytellers for a series of performances throughout Northwest Donegal that will include a visit to the islands of Arranmore and Tory. Eoin is coming to Donegal at the invitation of a group of local artists and writers who proposed the county as a magical location suitable for Eoin’s Once Upon A Place storytelling tour.He will join Joe Brennan, Malachy Doyle, Patricia Forde, Alan Nolan and Marion Rose McFadden for events in Glenveagh and the islands, while storytellers will also visit schools in Buncrana and take part in workshops for the Ramelton Storytelling Festival.‘When we put out the call for proposals to be part of the Once Upon A Place programme in June of last year, we were delighted to receive no less than three from Donegal, which has such a strong tradition in children’s literature,’ said Eoin Colfer.‘So we decided to bring all the strands together in a Donegal programme that stretches the length and breadth of this beautiful county.’ Eoin and the team will be taking part in a special event at Glenveagh on the evening of 24th September to mark the launch of this year’s Wainfest, Donegal Libraries’ children’s books festival.‘Donegal County Library Service is delighted to be welcoming Eoin and the team to Donegal for this special evening in a magnificent setting,’ said Karen Sheehy of Donegal County Libraries.‘Wainfest is an important festival in our annual calendar that gives children all over the county the opportunity to engage with the arts on a meaningful level and we are thrilled to have Laureate na nÓg launch our 2015 programme.’On the 25th, Eoin and the team will take a boat to Arranmore and Tory islands, where they will meet local children and take part in storytelling sessions.On the same day, author-illustrator Alan Nolan will travel to Buncrana to run a day of workshops at St. Oran’s National School.Local storyteller Joe Brennan has also been working with students from St. Oran’s throughout the month of September. Then, on the 26th September, Alan Nolan and Patricia Forde will join Joe Brennan to take part in storytelling sessions in Ramelton in conjunction with the Ramelton Storytelling Festival.Eoin became Ireland’s third Laureate na nÓg in May 2014, and has spent the past 15 months fulfilling the dual aims of creating memorable storytelling experiences in extraordinary places and visiting communities that would not otherwise have access to stories, due to being in remote locations or having limited resources.To date, Eoin and a team of storytellers have told stories to children on a steam train, in a lighthouse and a haunted mansion, at a halting site and in a dozen schools in the Burren, County Clare.Laureate na nÓg is an initiative of the Arts Council, administered by Children’s Books Ireland and with the support of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Poetry Ireland and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. Further sponsorship of the Donegal leg of Once Upon A Place has been forthcoming from Donegal Arts Office, Donegal County Libraries, Údarás na Gaeltachta and the North-South Cooperation Section of the Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Education Northern Ireland.Further information: Nessa O’Mahony, Project Manager, Laureate na nÓg: Tel: 087 9309670 / E: laureatenanog@gmail.com  http://www.childrenslaureate.ieRENOWNED CHILDREN’S AUTHOR EOIN COLFER SET TO TOUR DONEGAL was last modified: September 18th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Featuresnewslast_img read more

Spectacular meteor shower to be visible in Donegal skies tonight

first_imgDonegal’s skies will be graced by the Orionid meteor shower later tonight.This special meteor shower is caused by particles from Halley’s Comet, and is considered a big event for astronomy buffs as the comet only passes earth once every 75 to 76 years.Hurtling past Earth at a massive 148,000 miles per hour, this shower is one of the brightest in the celestial calendar. To see this gorgeous display no special equipment is required. Simply look to the sky, with the meteors being most visible when away from other light sources such as streetlights.The best time to catch this spectacle is at 2am, however conditions may be overcast tonight due to Storm Brian’s arrival to Irish shores.Space.com explains why we will see these meteors: “As the icy comet makes its way around the sun, it leaves behind a trail of comet crumbs. At certain times of the year, Earth’s orbit around the sun crosses paths with the debris.”“Sometimes the shower peaks at 80 meteors an hour; at others it is closer to 20 or 30.” “Go out around 1:30 a.m. and let your eyes adjust to the dark for about 20 minutes. Bundle up against the cold if necessary. Lie back and use only your eyes to watch the sky. Binoculars and telescopes won’t improve the view, because they are designed to see more stationary objects in the sky.”The next time Halley’s Comet will whizz by is expected around July 2061, making the Orionid meteor shower a special treat for stargazing enthusiasts.Spot something? We’d love to see any pictures you snap of tonight’s meteor shower!
