THE 2016 track and field season will hit another high gear today as the two-day Digicel Grand Prix Central Championships will take place at G.C. Foster College, starting at 9:30 a.m., with the preliminary round of the girls’ 400 metres, starting with Class Two. Today, there will be 15 field events finals, along with eight on the track. A prelude to next month’s GraceKennedy ISSA Boys and Girls’ Championships, this event will definitely give some clue about who will win the girls’ section as the top five teams at the national championships last year, headed by defending champions Edwin Allen High, will be on show with Hydel High, St Jago High, Holmwood Technical, and Vere Technical being the leading teams, along with the much-improved Manchester High and its new coaching staff, led by technical director Jerry Holness and Dwayne Jarrett. CONFIDENCE A year ago when the meet was held at Kirkvine Sports Club due to the unavailability of G.C. Foster College Edwin Allen won the championships quite easily and went on to win the national title, also quite easily. Head coach Michael Dyke is very confident of dominating once again and is taking this meet seriously as there is also a cash prize of $250,000 from Digicel for the overall winning team. Additionally, the top two finishers in the individual Grand Prix events in the Under-18 and Under-20 categories will advance to Saturday’s Grand final, the G.C. Foster Classics at the same venue, where the top male and female schools will each get $1 million in gym equipment. There is also a Grace Most Improved School Award for each of the Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championship meets, which sees the respective male and female high-school winners each receiving $125,000. “We want to continue our winning ways this season and we are hoping to be well represented in all events as we want to keep this momentum going into Champs, and we will not be dropping our guard,” said Dyke. St Jago High were absent last year and after a dominant performance at the Camperdown Classics at the National Stadium last Saturday – where Edwin Allen, Hydel and Holmwood were absent – they will want to prove that their performances were no fluke. Last year, they were touted to unseat Edwin Allen at Champs, but placed third behind an improved Hydel and will want to prove that they have the ammunition to go all the way this time. Since their introduction to these Championships, St Jago’s boys have dominated and the Danny Hawthorne-coached team, who were absent last year, are favourites for a massive win. Defending champions Manchester High will have their hands full in containing the former champions. It has been an excellent season so far for St Jago boys, especially in the middle-distance events where they are led by the outstanding Lerone Clarke, Keenon Lawrence and Joel Jean Pierre. – 3:10 p.m.: 400m Hurdles Girls – Timed Finals – 3:25 p.m.: 400m Hurdles Boys – Timed Finals – 3:40 p.m.: 1500m Girls- Timed Finals – Class 3, 2, – 4:10 p.m.: 1500m Boys – Timed Finals – Class 3,2,1 Track Finals – 9:30 a.m.: Triple Jump Class 11 Boys Discus – Class 1 Girls – 10:30 a.m.: Long jump – Class 3 Girls Discus – Class 1 Boys – 11 a.m.: High jump- Class 2 Boys – 11:30 a.m.: Long jump – Class 3 Boys Shot Put – Class 2 Boys – 2 p.m.: Triple jump – Open Girls High jump – Class 1 Boys Shot put – Class 2 Boys – 3:15 p.m.: Long Jump – Class 4 Girls High jump – Class 2 Girls – 4:30 p.m.: Long jump – Class 1 Boys Discus – Class 2 Girls Field Events Finals

Dear Editor,Please allow me space to expound on the ramifications of the recent charges brought by SOCU against Messrs Ashni Singh and Winston Brassington for purported ‘misconduct in public office, contrary to public law’. The basis of the charges call every single Government decision since Independence into question. I aim to show clearly by using dubious ‘real estate’ values as the sole basis for land distribution value, SOCU and its United Kingdom adviser Dr. Sittlington have implicated every Government official ever involved in any transaction since 1966.Governments are not real estate sales offices, the value of land is not calculated solely on square footage. A Government must consider the benefits that accrue through sale or lease of land for whatever purpose: job creation, health benefits, economic activity, infrastructural development et al. The example most often cited in support of this type of land distribution is the United States Land grants to the railroad companies between1860 and 1900. “Building a railroad was an expensive venture. Private Banks, fearing the railroad companies would need a long time to pay off their debts, were reluctant to loan money to the companies. To remedy the situation, Congress provided assistance to the railroad companies in the form of land grants. The land grant railroads, receiving millions of acres of public land, sold the land to make money, built their railroads, and contributed to a more rapid settlement of the West. In the end, four out of the five transcontinental railroads were built with help from the federal government.” By SOCU definitions, this is an example of great corruption. I have no doubt Dr. Sam Sittlington has no idea of what Guyana’s economic position was during the post PNC years; having arrived post PPP, he must have assumed that Guyana was always economically stable and attractive to investors. Someone needs to educate the good doctor. SOCU has a mandate to find corruption; it needs to do just that, not engage in ‘political misconduct’, SOCU must build cases based on provable malfeasance, not wishful thinking.Editor, the further issue is that the institution of these charges by SOCU and the private charges laid by Anil Nandlall have created an atmosphere of uncertainty and doubt of the ability of any Government of Guyana to do business of any kind in any manner. The land deals referred to in the charges went out to public tender, is value not actually ascribed in what the top bidder is willing to pay? For someone to suggest that five acres of cow pasture in rural Georgetown is worth seventy-two million, three hundred and forty thousand dollars per acre is patently outlandish. I would be curious to know on what basis the Rodrigues & Associates valuation was made, on square footage or per kilogram? Could the present Administration be able to find anyone willing to pay this price even post-oil discovery? How can any investor now proceed with any business in a country that has a perpetually retroactive review as law? SOCU has made it impossible to invest in Guyana with any confidence. Should we be seeking the blessings of Her Majesty’s Government to ensure future decisions are ‘proper conduct’? Wither Independence?The People of Guyana are not amused by the actions of Government and Opposition. We know they have both gone far and above to provide representation in the House of Assembly of all Guyanese, from the intelligent to the downright ignorant. We have looked on with disgust as debates over important aspects of our governance have been waylaid by behaviour best left in fish markets, but we cannot continue to be silent as this new phase of charge and counter-charge is played out in the courtrooms and all media formats.Administration and Opposition need to start immediate dialogue and get us out of this quagmire in which the slippery slope of politically motivated charges has entrapped us. Country before Party must become the ethos for all.Our future depends on growth and development based on investment. For guidance, I offer the words of one of the Founding Fathers of The United States of America: “Capital is wayward and timid in lending itself to new undertakings, and the State ought to excite the confidence of capitalists, who are ever cautious and sagacious, by aiding them overcome the obstacles that lie in the way of all experiments.”… Alexander Hamilton (Chalmers Johnson, ‘’Introduction: The Idea of Industrial Policy,” in C. Johnson, ed., The Industrial Policy Debate (San Francisco, ICS Press, 1984), p. 17.)Sincerely,Robin Singh
…”We have no power to do anything” – PPP CouncillorsRembers of the Enmore-Hope Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) voiced their frustration at what they say is the lack of constructive discussions at meetings, reportedly due to the constant disruption by the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) elected Councillor Deochand Singh.Garbage on the roadside at Enmore, ECDAccording to the Vice Chairman of the Enmore-Hope NDC, Mark Mahase, since the formation of the Council, meetings have continuously been interrupted by Singh, who he said is one of the two APNU/AFC Councillors within the group of 18 Councillors.“Our main concern is that in recent times, since the Council form, most of the meetings them tend to break up by APNU/AFC Councillor Deochand Singh, and as such, the Councillor[s] hardly get to do the planning they want to do and execute their duty that they want to execute and that is hindering the development of the community,” Mahase related.Additionally, the Councillors highlighted that though the Local Government Act Chapter 28:02 states that “The local authority of a village or country district may, subject to the approval of the Minister, appoint fit and proper persons to be Overseer, Assistant Overseer, Clerk or other officers of the local authority, and the local authority may employ such servants as may be necessary for the efficient execution of the powers, duties and functions of the local authority under this Act,” they are rendered powerless, since the Regional Democratic Officer (REO) refuses to accept changes they have made towards the benefit of the village.Elaborating on the situation, People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Councillor Mohamed Ikbal Dawud, highlighted that the Councillors came to a unanimous decision to have the NDC’s previous tractor operator replaced by a new operator.“We had a problem with the tractors, whereby they needed tyres. After writing to the region, tyres were sent a couple weeks later, brand new tyres. When the tractors go the first day to the dumpsite, two of the new tyres puncture. We get it replaced, the next day, it went to the dump site and it had another mechanical problem. We get it fixed. The third day again he go, problem again. We investigate him and find that he sabotaging the tractor. We issue him three letters… We had grounds to fire him,” Dawud said.He continued, “the Chapter state the Chairman have all right to fire and hire a new operator and then inform the region cause right now there is no development in this community. Ninety per cent of garbage is all over the place. The old operator is not doing his job. We find out he taking payment from residents in the area to do their personal work and stop clean up the garbage and do what he supposed to. He wasn’t doing his job so we had to fire him and hire a new operator.”However, the Councillors noted that this action was not seen fit by the REO, who they said, threatened to have the Enmore-Hope overseer transferred to Buxton; another community on the East Coast of Demerara.“The region is not supporting us. We have no power to do anything, it seem like. They ain’t giving we no response on what to do with the APNU/AFC Councillor. They are not informing us about anything. They even want to send a new Overseer without ever telling us and that’s how we gotta work,” Dawud pointed out.According to Dawud, the REO’s behaviour was “unacceptable.” He expressed hope that Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan will look into the matter.Efforts to solicit a response from the Minister proved futile.
An unidentified man was on Friday evening shot dead following an incident involving a Police rank in the vicinity of the Camp Street Prison.The Camp Street PrisonBased on reports the shooting occurred at about 23:50h.It was revealed that the now dead man was cautioned by Police ranks earlier in the night when he was behaving disorderly at the corners of John and D’Urban Streets. He reportedly pushed down the Police barriers which are outside the prison.As such he was taken into Police custody by a Police patrol but was released. He returned to the scene and continued with similar behaviour.The second time around, a constable attempted to warn him but he instead attacked the rank.It was during the attack that the constable discharged a round, hitting the man to his lower abdomen. He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he succumbed while receiving medical attention.An investigation has been launched into the incident.
During a rollicking Spanish-language singalong that included “Jingle Bells,” Cheli, 21, gestured with all her might. She managed to smile. Muscular dystrophy has atrophied her body, which was draped horizontally in a wheelchair, her hands coiled tightly.— Most of the babies, children and young adults who live in the orphanage have cerebral palsy, autism or mental retardation, or they are HIV-positive. Private donations fund the nonprofit facility’s operations. “I feel like we have to share what we have with people who are less fortunate, … and I think it’s based on love of God,” said Esther Kim, who traveled with her husband, Dr. Peter Kim, a Valencia pediatrician. “It overflows to people who are less fortunate.” Ricardo Cantero – whose family’s sojourns to Mexico in the past seven years paved the way for the church group – batted around a soccer ball with 20-year-old Victor, who sat in a wheelchair. Victor delighted in faking out his opponent and tossing the ball well out of Cantero’s reach. Dr. Kim sought out Jose, 12, whose club feet left him scooting along on the ground, propelled by his hands. Kim will try to arrange corrective surgery for Jose in California. There will be obstacles. The boy’s last name is not known, and he has no identification papers, Kim said. “I see no difference when I see one child from another child … with the heart, mind and spirit …, just a different look,” Kim said. “I see each as an individual, a perfect individual in God’s eyes.” While most of the disabled children will never leave the impoverished Mexican village, one boy has prospects. Seven-month-old Panchito, who was dropped off at the orphanage when he was just one month old, is being adopted by the Cantero family. He could be living in Valencia in six months. “I feel kind of sorry for him,” said Ricky Cantero, 17, who took turns with his parents and siblings cradling the baby. “He stays in kind of a cage. I want another brother. I can take care of my sister, brother and him. I’m just happy he’s coming.” Maria Cantero’s calm composure broke as she labeled clothes and gifts the family members had brought for the baby they hope to make one of them. A pair of sunglasses hid her tears. The previous day, the group had rolled into Gomez Morin, a town adjacent to an old trash dump, which closed several months ago, on the eastern outskirts of Ensenada. The dump was a gold mine for local residents, who earned as much as $10 a day wading through the trash and fishing out clothes and bottles that they cleaned up to sell. “When they closed the dump, a lot of families lost the ability to make a living,” said Art Garcia, one of the visitors.—Most houses in the town are cobbled together from scraps. Electricity and running water are luxuries few can afford. There is no place to escape the 30-degree winter cold. Any heat is from blankets. Church members, who have both immediate and long-term goals for helping the townspeople, had brought vegetable seeds and fertilizer during an earlier trip and taught people how to plant gardens. “We’re trying to help people who are trying to stay in their country and obey the law,” said Rick Jamieson, a retired Los Angeles police officer who was on the construction team. “They want to stay in their community.” That Saturday morning, the visitors split into teams. They fed the townspeople, performed a Christmas program and handed out gifts to more than 120 children at the Nazarene church. Then they built a patio cover for a family’s bare-bones home. Dr. Kim examined about 60 women and children at a makeshift clinic inside the church. There were many with colds, coughs, sore throats or the flu, but the doctor found they were generally in good health. Free children’s vaccinations are available, but unless people have life-threatening problems, they generally self-treat illnesses, he said. “They depend on us,” the doctor said. “We’ll be back.” Ana Marmol and her 12-year-old daughter, Aubrey, a seventh-grader at Rio Norte Junior High School in Valencia, recorded the patients’ medical histories. Aubrey handed out cute stickers. Periodically, Ana mingled with the crowd, approaching children who shunned the doctor. “They say, ‘I don’t want to do this; I’m really shy,”‘ Marmol said. She offered gentle encouragement and changed some minds.—Jose Almazan, 16, walks two miles a day to and from home, school and work. He wields tweezers and snippers for a garment maker to earn money to buy his own clothing. “I pull threads, and if they are loose, I cut them,” he said in Spanish. Jose said he earns $1 an hour. He can barely move his left foot, crippled by an infection that hinders his gait. Kim gave him some medicine and will consult with a Santa Clarita podiatrist on his behalf. A curly haired Valencia High School 11th-grader, Joshua Marmol, also 16, skillfully strummed a guitar during the holiday service, accompanying a chorus of local kids. After lunch, church members handed out gift bags and bicycles. The process took hours, as each child’s name was recited to thunderous applause. The doctor’s wife surmised some of the bikes will be shared. “They will be the only transportation for the whole family,” Esther Kim said. The visitors realize some of their popularity may flow from their largess, which totaled about $8,000 in cash and gifts. “Probably a good quarter or 50 percent (of the people) are here to get something,” Garcia said. “We have to accept that. We plant the seed that we’re here (for) more than to offer (them) stuff.” — Judy O’Rourke, (661) 257-5255 firstname.lastname@example.orgWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

About two dozen mostly middle-age travelers from Friends in Faith, a Bible study group from Grace Baptist Church in Saugus, set out on a two-day pilgrimage to a couple of towns in Baja California to deliver gifts, perform Christmas programs and do light construction. Members of a Spanish ministry within the church joined them. “I just get the joy out of helping as I can,” said attorney Steve MacPhail, who delivered sermons at the Christmas events. “The first time I went down, even before I got down there, it was put in my heart we’re going to help all these people. Yet I found (those) who felt the most blessed (were) me and people in our group. Those who gave got more out of it.” Anchored in wheelchairs or cradled in the arms of the visitors, many youngsters from the Gabriel House orphanage joined in the festivities. GOMEZ MORIN, Mexico — Sergio will never be a headliner at the Teatro Metropolitan in Mexico City, but the Sunday before Christmas he held an invitation-only audience in thrall with a keyboard solo. His improvised performance was unscheduled. It never would have occurred at all if Kay Dell, the Santa Clarita woman poised at the keyboard, had shooed away the energetic boy who climbed onto her lap and found his inner musician. The 7-year-old has Down syndrome and lives in an orphanage in the dirt-poor Mexican town of Maneadero, south of Ensenada, that is home to severely disabled children and young adults – some of them true orphans, some left by parents who could not care for them. Four sisters with cerebral palsy came from the same family of nine kids. “The love and joy that the little children had for us was overwhelming because we went to give to them,” said Dell, a public school music teacher for 23 years. “But through the love of God, these special children, who are less than perfect, gave more than we could have ever given to them.”
