PLCA to inspect all venues … League set to restart on Sunday

first_imgThe Operations Committee of the Premier League Clubs Association (PLCA) will be inspecting the playing fields of all 12 clubs in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) following the recent poor weather associated with hurricane Matthew. The inspection is expected to take place before Friday to determine the level of readiness of the venues after the passage of the weather system. Matches originally scheduled for last Sunday have been postponed and a new date is yet to be decided by the PLCA. However, the league will resume this Sunday, October 9 with the original fixture involving six games. “We normally have inspection of the fields, and this will be done by weekend with a team from the operations committee,” Franz Walker, PLCA league director informed The Gleaner yesterday. “There were no strong winds usually associated with a hurricane, so the team will just look at fields to determine whether they are okay for games,” he also said. The games scheduled for Sunday reads: Arnett Gardens FC hosting Portmore at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex; Tivoli Gardens welcoming Maverley-Hughenden to the Edward Seaga Complex; Humble Lion and Montego Bay United squaring off at Effortville Community Centre in May Pen; Boys’ Town vs Jamalco FC at Barbican Complex; Harbour View playing Waterhouse at Harbour View Stadium and Reno and UWI meeting at Frome. ‘NO STRONG WINDS’last_img read more

It would be ‘disappointment’ if PH Azkals fail to reach Suzuki Cup Finals

No increases in subsidy for Berbice bridge tolls – Govt

first_img…$120M for rehabilitation of pontoonsAs the consideration of the estimates in the 2019 Budget continues in the National Assembly, some $286 million was set aside for the Berbice Bridge Company Incorporated (BBCI) as the House approved the budgeted $38.5 billion for Public Infrastructure Ministry on Tuesday.Part of the monies for the Berbice Bridge Company was a provision of $120 million for the rehabilitation of the pontoons.Back in October, the BBCI had taken up the Public Infrastructure Ministry on its offer to assume full responsibility for the maintenance and rehabilitation of 39 pontoons, which had not been serviced for more than two maintenance cycles.This agreement was followed by the subsequent announcement by BBCI Chairman, Dr Surendra Persaud, that the company is facing bankruptcy and as such proposed to increase its tolls as much 300 per cent in some cases, to keep the Berbice Bridge afloat. However, this was strongly opposed by Government with subject Minister David Patterson eventually declaring last month that the functions of the bridge company “to maintain and operate the bridge shall be exercised by the Government of Guyana as of November 5, 2018, until the date the Minister specifies by notice on the cessation of the threat to public safety.”To date, Government still assumes responsibility for the operation of the bridge.As such, during Tuesday’s session in the National Assembly, Minister Patterson was grilled by the Opposition on aspects of the bridge’s operation.People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Shadow Public Infrastructure Minister, Juan Edghill asked which agency is currently managing the bridge company since the State took over operations and also asked about where the earnings are going.In response, Minister Patterson said the BBCI continues to manage the operations of the Berbice Bridge, while adding that “…all tolls collected, are collected and deposited in whatever account that company so wishes and all… revenues collected by that company continues to be collected by that company.”“The Government of Guyana collects no money, whatsoever, from the Berbice Bridge at the moment,” he posited.Moreover, when further questioned about the quantum of loss that the BBCI is incurring by not having increased tolls and who will be incurring this loss, the Public Infrastructure Minister affirmed that he was only answering queries relating to the line item ‘Subsidies and contributions to local organisations’.That line item contained a subsidy of $166,304,000 which Minister Patterson explained is the sum that was agreed on in 2016 to subsidise toll increases requested then by the BBCI.“In January 2016… we entered into an agreement with the Berbice River Bridge Company Inc to provide a subsidy to the toll to the residents of Region Six and Region Five; and Sir, this line item has been here since 2016. The subsidiary will continue in 2019 to the exact sum…,” he told the Committee of Supply.On this note, Edghill asked whether the $166.3 million subsidy will be adequate to deal with the circumstances of the Bridge Company at this time.The Public Infrastructure Minister, in response, asserted that “There is an agreement between the bridge [and Government] for this level of subsidy; $300 for cars and 10 per cent for all other vehicles. That equates to $166,304,000 and that is what I’m addressing to this Assembly.”While Government remains adamant about not allowing the proposed toll increases, there has been calls for the state to buy out shares from investors.Guyana Times understands that the BBCI, in which the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) has majority voting rights on the Board of Directors, was forced to push for the increase in tolls in order to protect its investment. In fact, it was revealed that NIS was the only investor who received returns on its interests in theThe Berbice River BridgeBridge Company.To this end, outspoken political activist and former Presidential Advisor Ramon Gaskin suggested that an alternative is for Government and the NIS to solely own the bridge, thus buying the shares from all the other shareholders.Meanwhile, one of the shareholders told this newspaper that it recognises that the Berbice Bridge is in serious financial jeopardy given that debts have reached maturity and few options are available to stave off bankruptcy.“The Government should sit down with the bridge company and work out the appropriate subsidy with due reference to the financial model and or the Concession Agreement. This is necessary as a result of Government’s refusal to allow incremental increases, or in other words, refusing to honour its contractual obligations as per the Concession Agreement,” the shareholder said.Another noted that if an agreement cannot be reached, then it is recommended that the Government buy back the bridge and compensate investors in keeping with the financial model and other investment documents.In a shocking move on November 5, 2018, the Government of Guyana snatched control of the Berbice River Bridge in an apparent effort to nationalise the structure, which was financed mainly by private investors.The People’s National Congress (PNC)-led Government said that in accordance with the powers conferred upon Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson by Sections 4 (1) and 11 of the Berbice River Bridge Act, “in the interests of public safety, the Minister issued an order declaring that the functions of the Concessionaire to maintain and operate the Bridge shall be exercised by the Government of Guyana as of 5th November, 2018, until the date the Minister specifies by notice on the cessation of the threat to public safety.”However, the Government’s unilateral decision did not go down well with BBCI Vice Chairman Paul Cheong, who told Guyana Times that such an arbitrary move was a slap in the face of all public-private partnerships.last_img read more

Chesney wins Country entertainer of the year; Strait, Underwood also collect honors

first_imgPHOTO GALLERY: ACM AwardsLAS VEGAS (AP) – Kenny Chesney collected his third consecutive entertainer of the year trophy Tuesday as the Academy of Country Music also paid tribute to a youngster and some oldsters. The academy honored veteran George Strait, newcomer Carrie Underwood and gave an unprecedented 14th vocal duo award to Brooks & Dunn. Brooks & Dunn were up against some stiff competition from Sugarland, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich and The Wreckers, and Ronnie Dunn fretted before the show that the pair had to lose “sooner or later.” “Not this year,” an exuberant Kix Brooks said as the duo claimed the trophy. “It’s still as much fun as it’s ever been, and we’re going to keep doing it.” A few minutes later, a subdued Chesney, wearing a black cowboy hat, accepted the top award, paying tribute to fellow musicians Keith Whitley and Strait. “When I first started playing music, I was in college and I would go rent all my equipment and put it in the back of a pickup truck. The only thing I wanted to do was cut a record as good as Keith Whitley did, and I listened to that music over and over again,” he said. Strait, who came into the competition with a leading eight nominations, claimed the first award of the night, winning song of the year for “Give It Away.” As he collected his trophy, he seemed particularly touched that as an older performer he wasn’t forgotten. Veteran singer-songwriter Bill Anderson, who joined Strait in collecting the trophy, seemed touched that older artists weren’t forgotten. “I’m old enough to be Carrie Underwood’s grandfather,” the 69-year-old said of the 24-year-old singer. Underwood, the 2005 “American Idol” winner, won album of the year for her debut CD, “Some Hearts,” and was honored as top female vocalist. “I would not be here if it were not for ‘American Idol,’” she said as she collected her vocal award. “Thank you, fans. God bless you.” Strait was also nominated for entertainer of the year, along with Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts and Tim McGraw. Miranda Lambert won new female vocalist, beating out former “American Idol” contestant Kellie Pickler and teenage country star Taylor Swift. During the show, Swift performed her hit song “Tim McGraw,” as its namesake and his wife, country star Faith Hill, sat in the audience beaming. Lambert attended the ceremonies with boyfriend and fellow country singer Blake Shelton, but he missed her victory. “He went to the bathroom just as I was winning, so I had nobody to hug,” she said. Brad Paisley was named male vocalist of the year, the only category in which he was nominated. Rascal Flatts captured best vocal group. Underwood, whose dark hit “Before He Cheats” dominated the video awards at last month’s fan-voted Country Music Television Music Awards, was also up for best female vocalist, single of the year, song of the year and video of the year at the ACMs, where winners are picked by the 4,500-member academy. The entertainment-driven program, hosted by Reba McEntire, was slated to hand out just a dozen awards. The show aired live on CBS from the MGM Grand hotel-casino, with a tape-delayed broadcast for the West Coast. Along with the top nominees, performers were to include Martina McBride, Josh Turner, Toby Keith, Sugarland and Paisley. Brooks & Dunn earlier were named recipients of the Home Depot Humanitarian Award, joining past honorees McEntire, Vince Gill, Lonestar, McBride and Neal McCoy. The group will be honored with two playgrounds to be built in cities of their choice. “It’s a pretty cool thing. I told them we’re a duo, so they should give us two. They didn’t blink an eye,” Dunn said. He is looking for a playground spot in Nashville. Partner Kix Brooks has chosen Shreveport, La. Other artists whose awards were announced before Tuesday’s show include: Producer Dann Huff; bass, Glenn Worf; drums, Eddie Bayers; fiddle, Aubrey Haynie; guitar, Brent Mason; keyboard, John Hobbs; specialty instrument (fiddle, mandolin), Stuart Duncan; steel guitar, Michael Johnson. ___ Academy of Country Music: http://www.acmcountry.com Academy of Country Music winners (AP) – Winners announced at Tuesday’s 42nd annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

Cemetery hosts its first Oktoberfest fundraiser

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.And with the nearly $30,000 they earned, officials believe this will be enough to help it stay in business. “It went really well,” said Randy Wiggins, president of the El Monte Cemetery Association. Most of the proceeds came from the raffle ticket sales, but the Rosemead Moose Lodge also will donate $1,100 to the cemetery from its beer sales. “All in all, everyone had a good time,” Neil Sorensen, administrator for the Rosemead Moose Lodge. The cemetery, located across from Rosemead High School, has been in financial trouble for several years. According to officials, the El Monte Cemetery Association, which oversees and owns the site, has been losing money and has been pursuing ways to help the cemetery by trying to preserve it as a national historic landmark. ROSEMEAD – Children climbed rocks, longtime residents sipped beer and a band played as couples strolled through the Savannah Memorial Park on Saturday. This was the first Halloween Oktoberfest – a fundraiser for the four-acre cemetery on Valley Boulevard that dates back to the 1800s – and some are saying that it was such a success that more events will follow. “I don’t think I could have envisioned anything better than it was,” said lead organizer Barbara Murphy said. “I am very happy with the way it turned out.” The event, which attracted at least 10,000 people, was organized by residents who were on a mission to save the cemetery. In 2005, the association, made up of those who own plots in the cemetery, spent $34,000 but only brought in $9,000. Operating costs were cut in 2006 to $22,000. The cemetery has graves from the 1840s and is the final resting place of a veteran of the War of 1812. City leaders said they were glad the event could help raise money for the cemetery as well as build a sense of community. “I was incredibly impressed,” said City Manager Oliver Chi, “with the support from the community for attending the events and incredibly happy with the support of the staff.” The event came to fruition after Murphy along with Rosemead resident Francis Chavez were able to get city staff, elected officials and the parks and recreation department to plan the event. “For a first-time event, it was a great turnout,” said Murphy, who now has plans for a citywide rummage sale in the spring. jennifer.mclain@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2477 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
