Savings of almost $300 million by the Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) administration have been reinvested into realising a number of transformational projects across the Region, to the benefit of residents.According to Regional Executive Officer (REO) Rupert Hopkinson, the savings were made possible through prudent resource management and vigilance by the Regional Administration in 2017.Works continue on the Anna Regina Health CentreThe projects realised from the ground-breaking achievement are a new boat landing for students and teachers at the Liberty Nursery and Primary School, a bus shed at Dartmouth, a fence at Unity Park, a seating area at Cotton Field and renovation and extension of the Anna Regina Health Centre.Currently, there are 46 pupils attending the Liberty Primary School, some 18 miles down the Pomeroon River. Headteacher Pansy Garraway-Allen said the new school’s landing was extremely necessary.“Previously, the situation was very bad. It was almost a threat to any person who would have used the landing. The lower part of the stelling, some parts were rotted, a few threaders from the step were missing because the foundation was no more. … At times we had to choose spots to step on to avoid going underground in any serious state. It was also not good enough for the students. Many times, we had to tutor the children, guiding them where to walk and avoid any sort of running on it,” Garraway-Allen explained.The newly-extended landing is a boon for the female staff, the Headteacher continued, since “before during the spring tide in the mornings, the tide would be rather low causing some trouble to us. The flats were very far out and the boats in which we travel to school are large and when we get to school, we would normally have to stick our skirts in the tights and pull boat ropes to get up to the stelling which was very strenuous to us as females.” According to Garraway-Allen, the students were also forced to step from one boat to another to reach the landing.The REO said the decision to do the work was influenced mainly by the pleas of the Headteacher and the threat the dilapidated facility posed to students and teachers alike.“Because of the danger and imminent threat to life and limb, we decided that we must have this thing done. The beautiful thing is that we had savings.I am elated to know that we were able to rescue the situation at Liberty. It is a good job done not only for Liberty but for the Region as well,” Hopkinson explained.
Chief Executive Officer, Roopnarine Bert Sukhai and Deputy Chief of Mission at the US Embassy Terry Steers-Gonzalez during the celebratory eventThe National Milling Company of Guyana (NAMILCO) on Thursday evening celebrated 50 years since its establishment, providing quality flour and other variants to the Caribbean market, while renewing its commitment to continue operations in Guyana.The event was hosted at the Marriott Hotel as a way of thanking partners and customers for their continued support. Established on May 17, 1969, by its parent company, Seaboard, the milling company has created products to meet expectations and has managed to maintain ISO 9001 certification.Chief Executive Officer, Roopnarine Bert Sukhai gave a history of their progress which resulted in a wide variety of new products. From just wheat flour, the company has grown to produce other flour-based items that are easy to prepare. He posited that they are positively looking forward to the prospects of the future.“Our department will continue to recommend new products and we will strive to ensure that all lovers of flour products are extremely satisfied with what we will be offering…We have prepared and will continue to prepare to be around for another 50 years,” the CEO said.He added, “Over the years, we moved from making two types of flour to many different types. We catered for the large companies such as Banks (DIH) for biscuits and bread, Beharry for chowmein, the many large and small bakeries for pastries and other products; the home bakers by providing a variety of flour such as multi-grain, whole-wheat, vanilla flavoured cake flour, pholourie mix, roti mix and the list goes on”.His remarks were followed by Vice President of Seaboard, Ralph Moss, who stated that this successful tenure will continue in Guyana with affordable services to all Guyanese.“We have made additional investments, other than international milling here in Guyana and we will continue to seek new investments. With our expertise, we can bring needed skills, needed technology, and needed resources to your country.”Meanwhile, Business Minister, Haimraj Rajkumar gave credit for these successes to the strong collaboration between the public and private sectors.“Companies such as NAMILCO continue to make valuable contributions outside of their private business. Fifty years is certainly a long time to be involved in doing business in or country. Given the many uncertainties and uncontrollable situations that arises, it is the ultimate test of longevity when a company can be in operation for such a long time and still manage to hold its own in becoming a mainstay in the business community,” the Minister expressed.Presently, the company also supplies establishments such as KFC and the Suriname and Guyana franchise of Pizza Hut. It was also mentioned that their production is critical to ensuring that farmers are provided with bran. Presently, the production rate is 240 metric tonnes daily.
LANCASTER – The Antelope Valley Union High School District is holding a series of public forums to get community input about facility needs as it gears up for another run at passing a construction bond. The district didn’t hold such meetings in a previous attempt in June to pass a $177.5 million bond measure, which voters rejected. “We were up against a time frame,” Deputy Superintendent Jeff Foster said. “We opted to go with an earlier date. The trade-off was it cut down on community awareness or time to let people know what it was we were trying to do.” The district is studying whether to pursue another bond in November. A decision will be made by summer. So far, two meetings have been held at Littlerock and Quartz Hill high schools. Meetings are scheduled for Monday at Palmdale High; March 22 at Eastside High; April 2 at Lancaster High; April 5 at Knight High; April 10 at Highland; and April 23 at Antelope Valley High. The meetings are held in the evenings, generally with start times between 6 and 7 p.m. Call the schools to get the exact time and location. The purpose is in part to gather input about what people want to see built or improved if the district does pass a bond. But the forums also give people a chance to propose projects that would not fall under bond funding. “It’s to get input from the public,” Trustee Donita Winn said. “And my emphasis is, even if it’s something that would not fit into the bond picture, how can we make changes these people want, with developer fee money or something else.” More than 100 people showed up to the Littlerock High meeting. Staff and parents talked about electricity and lighting that didn’t work, the desire for tile flooring instead of carpeting and the need for a new paint job and a press box for the stadium. The district wants to pass a bond measure to pay for building one or two high schools, complete construction of Eastside High and make other improvements at other campuses. In January, the board voted to spend $21,000 for a consultant to increase awareness about the need for more facilities in the growing district, and to generate support for a bond measure. In June, the district came up just short with Measure E, which got 52 percent of the vote, short of the 55 percent needed. The measure would have taxed property owners about $30 per $100,000 of assessed valuation annually. Had it passed, Measure E would have helped pay for new high schools in southeast Palmdale and on the west side of the Antelope Valley, completing construction of Eastside High, expanding Quartz Hill High, and adding two new science labs at Lancaster. The district enrolls about 24,000 students, and some campuses, including Highland and Quartz Hill high schools, have populations of more than 3,000. email@example.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Two San Fernando Valley restaurants have zoomed into the top-five best places for food in the prestigious Zagat Survey, which is being released today. Studio City’s Asanebo, famous for its kappo ryori- small Japanese dishes served with beer, wine or hot sake – was rated third overall, up from 25th last year. The cooking at Brandywine in Woodland Hills placed fifth, up from 24th last year. The restaurant also topped Zagat’s Continenal cuisine list. This is the 22 annual Zagat Survey of Southern California restaurants. “Zagat is a peer-to-peer survey, rated by diners themselves,” said Margret McWilliams, co-owner of Brandywine, which has been in business 18 years. “For customers, the survey is like a recommendation from a friend. Our menu hasn’t changed, but we always see new patrons coming in, and now we expect even more.” Zagat rated M?lisse in Santa Monica as No. 1 in town for food, followed by Nobu Malibu. Spago in Beverly Hills ranked the most popular for the first time, followed by A.O.C. in Los Angeles and Caf? Bizou in Sherman Oaks. Nancy Silverton, who was featured in an LA.COM cover story last Wednesday, and Mario Batali took top newcomer honors with their Hollywood spot Pizzeria Mozza. Canel? in Atwater Village was rated second on that same list, and the Oinkster in Eagle Rock came in seventh. Meanwhile, Saddle Peak in Calabasas ranked third on the list for new American cuisine, and Dr. Hogly Wogly’s in Van Nuys scored second place in barbecue. Brent’s in Northridge topped the deli list. Tuscany in Westlake Village and Leila’s in Oak Park were among those being worth a trip. Hotel Bel-Air won both top decor and service for the second consecutive year. The 2008 guide covers 2,187 restaurants and is based on the experiences of 8,859 locals who eat out or take out more than half their meals. “Few cities offer more variety than Los Angeles’ dining scene,” said Tim Zagat, co-founder of the Zagat Survey. “The people of Paris can only dream of having as many top-quality Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Mexican and Cal-Med-style restaurants.” The results also revealed that 68 percent of Angelenos spend more on dining now than they did two years ago. However, while the average cost of a local meal rose 4.3 pecent since last year to $33.29, that’s still a dime below the national average of $33.39. Local diners tipped an average of 18.4 percent, a bit below the national average of 18.9 percent. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3692160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Seven secondary schools in the county have already agreed to run a Chalk It Up event on the 14th of March. Chairperson of the Donegal Regional group of the Donegal Youth Council Sharon McNern explains why the Youth Council wanted to show their support for the campaign this year.“As stand up week was approaching, we felt that this was a topic that we needed to raise awareness on as homophobic bullying is a continuing problem. We felt we needed to let LGBT young people in the county know that they have support and are not alone. Come on down on Saturday to see us and write your positive message of support.”Donegal Youth Council is funded by Donegal County Council, HSE Health Promotion and the Dept of Children and Youth Affairs and is co-ordinated at local level by the Donegal Youth Service.Stand Up LGBT Awareness runs all the week from 10th-14th March.

A national newspaper today admitted mistranslating a Polish article on a Polish waitress living in Co Donegal as the woman herself spoke out for the first time.The Irish Independent today dedicated two pages of its compact edition to running the entire article. They also published a letter from the Polish ambassador to Ireland.It’s understood the original article for the Independent was filed by a freelance journalist in Poland, but that her translation was wrong. A local reporter was asked to file a reaction from Donegal but had no other involvement in the story.The woman herself ‘Magda’ told The John Murray Show on RTÉ Radio today that she had been told by friends of the controversy the Irish Independent translation of the article had caused.She told the programme: “At first I was completely shocked. You don’t know what to think. How is it possible for anybody to publish something that is just not true, completely not true and it’s not just misinterpretation, you know, or mistranslation – it’s just a completely different story.”She said things had been added to even the Polish version of the story but said most of it was about her actual life in a town near Letterkenny in Donegal. ‘Magda’ said that when she read the Irish Independent article she was “very worried”. The trained nanny revealed that she has lived in Ireland for the past six years and has been on the dole for the past year-and-a-half having previously worked in a hotels, hostels, and waitressing.“The thing is that jobs are scarce here. It is difficult, especially as I don’t drive so I can’t go to bigger towns.“The other thing is that I worked in the hospitality industry and qualified as massage therapist and that’s something I wanted to do for a really long time and I decided that’s an option to start my own business, to do what I really want to do.”‘Magda’ said that she has done a number of FÁS courses to help her set up her own business which she hopes to set up by Easter.Of her actual lifestyle on the dole she added: ”My needs are not very high. That is in the article, I really try to live as cheap as possible. I don’t spend money on clothes, cosmetics, going out to the pub. “I don’t have money for that. I have money for basic survival and that’s okay with me.”POLISH WAITRESS ‘MAGDA’ SPEAKS FOR FIRST TIME was last modified: February 2nd, 2012 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)
The issue of derelict boats in Bunbeg pier has been raised after a dilapidated boat sank. Fortunately, no one was onboard during the incident. The boat had been taking in water for a period of time before sinking during the night.Although a great effort was made by locals to save the boat, it remains at the bottom of the water. Cllr Micheal Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig told Donegal Daily that there are a number of boats which have been left abandoned at the pier for years, and hopes that the sinking of this boat will spur the Council on to work with the owners of the vessels, and the fishermen who use the pier regularly.“There are a number of abandoned boats lying there for a long time which haven’t been used in years and will never see the ocean again. “There are a number of pleasure boats which also need to be looked at with regards to where they’re tied up. There are other boats there that only go out once or twice every few years, and these should be pulled up on the slip.“The new Harbour Master will hopefully be in place very shortly and I have asked that Bunbeg comes under the remit of the new Harbour Master. We’re lucky we have a big long harbour at Bunbeg.“All of these issues must be addressed in consultation with the fishermen and those who use the pier on a regular basis.“The Council need to consider fees at the harbour like there is in the majority of working harbours around Ireland.“It’s really important that we clean up and provide the facilities that are needed to allow people to get on with their daily work at Bunbeg, and Bunbeg doesn’t become a dumping group.“I believe we should provide as much as possible, considering how the government have failed the fishing community and have continued to fail them. The priority should be given to the fishermen.“With the Wild Atlantic Way tourism is becoming a big thing for our piers and harbours, so we need to take this on board. Tourism must be a benefit to all, not just a small minority. With this in mind, the Council must take a holistic approach to it.” “The Council must work alongside the fishermen of the area who make a living from the pier, and those who own the boats in resolving this issue.”“It’s a dumping ground”: Derelict boat sinks at Bunbeg pier was last modified: October 3rd, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:boatBunbegdonegalharbourpiersink
