first_imgThe slum community of Nyuanpanton, near New Kru Town heard shouts of ‘rogue, rogue’ Tuesday, September 22, and so residents awoke and captured the ‘rogue’ and inflicted mortal pains on him.The ‘rogue’ was later identified as Mr. Varney Morris Kiazulu, 50, of Popo Beach, whose wife, Evelyn David, relatives told the Daily Observer, was having an affair with a certain man in Nyuanpanton.Nyuanpanton residents who spoke to the Daily Observer said, “We heard someone calling rogue, rogue, and some people rushed out of their homes to catch the rogue.”At the victim’s residence Tuesday, his brother, Edward Z. Konuwa told the Daily Observer, “The victim came home with more than ten bloody marks on his body.” Mr. Konuwa is a consultant at House Speaker Alex Tyler’s office.”“I told him to let the woman go,” Konuwa said, “but it was difficult for my brother.” He said since his brother began having marital problems with his wife, “Varney could not even eat to his satisfaction.”He further stated that sometime last week, “My brother had a confrontation with his wife’s lover in Nyuanpanton.” What brought his death, he said, was the victim’s second attempt to get his wife from her lover’s house.”North Star security officer, Oliver F. Degbe also told the Daily Observer, “His whole body was bleeding when we saw him yesterday morning.”He said police officers who had visited the scene took away Ms. Evelyn David for questioning, which was confirmed by a police source at Zone 1 Depot, near Bong Mine Bridge, Tuesday.Officer Degbe said the late Kiazulu, “was a nice and easy going kind of man.” Our reporter observed a huge number of residents who had gathered at the victim’s residence to sympathize with the family.The victim’s 20-year-old son, Anthony Kiazulu, told the Daily Observer, “I feel bad about how my father has been killed.”He admitted being aware of his mother’s extra-marital affairs with a man whose name he could not reveal to the Daily Observer.“I want the police to get to the bottom of my father’s death,” he said, “and let the law punish everyone involved.”Though the shocking death did not produce tears, the presence of many sympathizers indicated the victim’s good relationship with his neighbors.Anthony and his 12-year-old sister, Antoinette, are the two children from the union of David his wife, the Observer was told.“We are waiting for the police to complete their job before we can take the body,” brother Konuwa told the Daily Observer.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgFor the first time in over 30 years, the municipality of Georgetown has a surplus budget of $4.4 million which will see monies being pumped into three major areas to improve the city’s overall functions.Director of Solid Waste Management, Walter NarineDirector of Solid Waste Management, Walter Narine took to social media to share the good news.Guyana Times understands that the three main areas of focus will be drainage through the Engineer’s Department, public health, and solid waste management.Narine, in his post, noted, “We are confident that with the provisions in this year’s budget, the citizens of our dear city will benefit tremendously: more green spaces will be created and we will be on our way to restoring the city as the Garden City of the Caribbean.”The city has been grappling over the years with properly managing its solid waste.In fact, it was only in March of this year that the outstanding balance of $80 million owed since 2018 to solid waste collectors contracted to the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) was finally paid.On November 25, 2018, the collectors Puran Brothers Disposal Services and Cevons Waste Management withdrew their services after months of operating without payments. Immediately after the withdrawal, services were provided by five agencies namely: Granderson, Trash Tech, Tri Star, C&S Services, and Garbage Eaters.The deadlock between the Council and contractors had many implications on the collection process within the capital city as residential and commercial areas were piled high with garbage just a few days after this decision was taken.As such, both solid waste collectors met with Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan and officials of the M&CC, and it was promised that payments would be made – putting an end to the long-running saga between collectors and the cash-strapped Council.Back in January, Central Government had intervened to bail out City Hall by disbursing $100 million to the contractors. At that time, the total owed amount was pegged at over $160 million.Over the years, Government has bailed out the cash-strapped City Hall on several occasions.last_img read more

first_imgToday we publish answers to our Question of the Week. We’ll ask another question Sunday. This week’s question: “Will the Dodgers regain a commitment to winning next year now that the franchise has hired former Yankees manager Joe Torre?” As far as the Dodgers go, I couldn’t possibly care less about them. I was born and raised a Dodger fan. I was about 9 years old when they moved out here and followed them faithfully for years. When they dumped Mike Scioscia and treated him like dirt (one of the classiest guys ever to be on that team, by the way), I gave up the Dodgers. I gave them up for Lent, I gave them up for good. I love Mike Scioscia. I’m so happy to see what he’s done with the Angels, but as for the Dodgers, I don’t think anything can save them. The team is disjointed. I think their heyday is gone and that’s fine with me.

I’ve been saying for two years they should get rid of him. I am a season ticket holder, and I am just delighted that Joe Torre is coming in. I just hope that he gets those players in top form. He just needs to get them in shape. – TERRI PESNER Rancho Dominguez The Dodgers’ hiring of Joe Torre as manager is a start to the commitment of winning next year. Now all the team needs is reliable starting pitching and a middle-of-the-lineup hitter and not put all the payroll in the A-Rod (Alex Rodriguez) basket. – MIKE REYNOLDS Redondo Beach In my opinion, the hiring of Joe Torre alone will not necessarily mean a winning season or championship. It is, however, a good start. Now the Dodgers will have to get some needed RBI men and much better starting pitching. In other words, (Dodgers owner Frank) McCourt, get out your checkbook! – ROCKY ROCHESTER Rancho Palos Verdes 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgDonegal is home to many bird coloniesTwo Irish wildlife charities have pleaded with parents to keep their children under control around bird colonies including Donegal this summer.The Irish Wildlife Trust and BirdWatch Ireland, are urging people to visit Ireland’s magnificent coastal and island bird colonies this summer but to ensure that birds, their nests and eggs are not disturbed.The two organisations have issued a joint code of conduct highlighting the fact that all breeding birds in Ireland are protected under the Wildlife Act 1976. They have asked that people keep their distance, even though many coastal birds seem quite tame.Ireland’s coastal habitats and islands are among the most important areas in Europe for breeding seabirds such as Puffins, Cormorants, Razorbills and a variety of gulls.Breeding grounds such as on Tory and Arranmore, the Saltee Islands in Wexford, Ireland’s Eye in Dublin and the Skelligs in Kerry are among our most amazing wildlife spectacles and thousands of people visit them every year.IWT Campaigns Officer, Pádraic Fogarty, says photographers and children are the biggest offenders. “Last year we received a number of complaints about a minority of people behaving inappropriately, such as photographers walking among Gannet nests and children chasing birds.“These are amazing places to appreciate our wildlife but people need to remember that they are protected sites and that disturbing birds is against the law.”Niall Hatch, Development Officer with BirdWatch Ireland said Ireland’s seabird colonies are amongst the finest in Europe and offer a wonderful opportunity for nature-lovers to see these special birds at close quarters and to get a glimpse into their otherwise hidden lives.“ We would urge visitors who go to watch this spectacle always to put the welfare of the birds first and to ensure that they don’t cause any disturbance or distress to them during the nesting season.”  PARENTS ASKED TO CONTROL CHILDREN AROUND DONEGAL’S BIRD COLONIES was last modified: April 30th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:bird coloniesBirdwatch Irelandchildrenlast_img read more

first_imgPALMDALE – Drivers of two vehicles were critically injured and three teenage girls in a third auto escaped with minor injuries when the three cars collided Wednesday morning on the Antelope Valley Freeway. Southbound commuter traffic backed up for miles while firefighters worked more than 45 minutes to free the driver of a GMC Jimmy sport utility vehicle that ended up wedged against a concrete traffic barrier and on top of the girls’ Toyota sedan. Authorities said the driver of a Honda Accord – Davis Urenacorado, 28, of Palmdale – apparently lost control of the car and caused the crash. The Honda was torn in half and the driver partially thrown out. Paulette Solomon, 34, of Lancaster, the SUV’s driver, and Urenacorado were flown out by helicopter to hospitals – she to UCLA Medical Center and he to Providence Holy Cross Medical Center. Fire Inspector Jason Hurd said both were critically injured. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The Toyota’s three occupants went to local hospitals, firefighters said. The driver was a 17-year-old from Lancaster and her passengers were 16-year-olds from Lancaster and Palmdale. Their car held together well and their injuries appeared minor, according to California Highway Patrol officials, who did not release their names because the girls are minors. Observers called it remarkable that all people in the crash survived. “It’s pretty miraculous, if you look at it,” CHP Sgt. Tom Lackey said. Nearly 20 Los Angeles County firefighters, including an urban search and rescue team from Lancaster, freed Solomon by cutting open the SUV’s wreckage and carrying her out to a helicopter that landed on the closed freeway. Urenacorado’s Honda was cut in half from hitting a concrete barrier in place for a freeway-widening project. The Honda’s rear seat and back axle were torn off from the front half of the car. Urenacorado’s Honda was traveling south at 55 to 65 mph around 7:30 a.m. when it went out of control for no apparent reason, CHP officers said. Near Vista Point, south of Avenue S, the out-of-control Honda swerved left and into the girls’ Toyota, which was in the middle lane, CHP officers said. The impact forced the Toyota into the fast lane, where it collided with the SUV. All three vehicles then hit the concrete barriers in the center of the freeway, CHP officers said. Vehicle debris that flew over the median hit a northbound van, cracking its windshield. The van driver, an Agua Dulce woman, was not hurt. Southbound traffic backed up more than four miles on the freeway because of the crash. Motorists trying to avoid the traffic jam also clogged Sierra Highway and Pearblossom Highway south of Palmdale.

first_img Runs seemed a constant problem. The club was built around pitching now, its attack inconsistent, unreliable, uncertain. It still worked well enough to send the Angels into the playoffs, but it was on a wet and wild Friday night at Yankee Stadium that they seemed to finally hit their stride. It was how after the Yankees climbed back to take a 6-5 lead and had Yankee Stadium absolutely rocking, the Angels almost calmly and methodically went back in front, regained control. It was how once they regained the lead, they kept pushing manager Mike Scioscia’s envelope. It was how everyone seemed to contribute, how they mixed their small ball with power, how if not perfect in the field, they still made timely and sometimes brilliant plays. “We’ve done a lot of things the last couple of games the way we have to,” Scioscia said. “I thought tonight we ran the bases very well. Ran from first to third to create some situations for us. “Steve (Finley) got a nice squeeze down for us, and in between we drove the ball from Bengie (Molina) and Garret (Anderson). “Some things came together.” Start spreading the news, these Angels finally resembled the 2002 team, the one that beat the Yankees in the division series on the way to the franchise’s first World Series title. They looked like the team that never believed it was out of a game, that always seemed to have one last rally in its pocket, one more surprise when the outcome seemed so clear. Now they are again one victory away from advancing to the American League Championship Series. One more Yankees heartbreak from a celebration that will take them to Chicago to meet the White Sox. The Angels wasted no time in announcing they would not be intimidated by either Johnson nor Yankee Stadium. After a pair of hard outs in the top of the first, they put together singles by Vladimir Guerrero and Molina before Anderson drilled a Johnson pitch deep into right-field pavilion. In the third Orlando Cabrera doubled and Molina homered for the second time in the series and it was quickly 5-0. Like New York didn’t have enough to worry about with terrorists in the subway, now the dominating Johnson – the man brought in to make a playoff difference – was made to look just like another guy. “You just don’t ever see that,” said Angels reliever Scot Shields. When the Angels opened the third with two more singles, Johnson was gone. It was his second quickest exit all season. “He just didn’t hit his spots,” said Yankees manager Joe Torre. “I don’t care how hard you throw, it doesn’t matter if you don’t hit your spots.” Yet the Angels couldn’t hold on, couldn’t make the lead hold up. After a Hideki Matsui home run, the Yankees used some small ball of their own to score four in the fourth and two more in the fifth. A light rain continued to fall and the New Yorkers seemed in their element, the Angels to be taught a little Big Apple playoff lesson. Only it was the Angels who took the Yankees to school, who found every which way to score. Hit-and-runs. Soft bloopers. Triples off the wall. Suicide squeeze plays. The Angels just kept coming, kept the pressure on and the scoreboard busy. By game’s end they had 19 hits. “We had to do something offensively if we’re going to win this series,” Scioscia said. “The one thing playoff experience has taught us, is you realize momentum can switch from one inning to the next, not just game to game. “These guys came right back and scored.” It was one game, but felt like a playoff arrival. The Angels finally appeared comfortable in their own offensive skin. A long search finally over. “I hope so,” Scioscia said. One more victory, and it’s another round. Another chance for continued self-discovery. Steve Dilbeck’s column appears in the Daily News four times a week.
