Anna Regina Town Council demolishes single mother’s stall

first_imgBy Indrawattie NatramA Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) single mother is now contemplating her next move after officials from Anna Regina dismantled her stall last week.A frustrated Sattie Narine pointing to the remains of her stallClothes vendor Sattie Narine of Capoey Village, Region Two, is calling the actions of the Anna Regina Town Council (ARTC) “unfair” after she found several zinc sheets and boards ripped from her stall when she turned for work early Wednesday morning.Speaking with Guyana Times the woman explained that around 06:30h that day, a delegation from the ARTC visited the area where she and several others vend on a daily basis and dismantled her stall, without her knowledge.The single mother said that she spent $300,000 to construct her stall and although it’s not a permanent structure, it was destroyed by the council. She is contending that if the ARTC was on a dismantling exercise to remove permanent stalls from the road shoulders then they should have commenced from the beginning of the market instead of just going to her stall.Narine is of the view that it was an act of discrimination and she is calling on the council for an explanation.“I come out daily here to vend, I am a single mother, I am earning honestly, why put me out of business? Who is going to give me money?” the woman lamented.The vendor pointed out that since 1989 she has been doing business and on several occasions she was removed without any explanation. When asked by this newspaper if she was issued any notice from the Council in the past the woman said yes.However, the frustrated vendor is contending that her stall is not a permanent one and as such the council should have given her some time.Meanwhile, when Guyana Times visited the market area Wednesday morning, several other stall owners were still on the road selling. They, like Narine, also have their stalls on the road shoulders.One of the vendors selling in the market, Simone Lashley, said that Council was unfair with their treatment of Narine. “If they wanted to remove stalls then they should have started from the first, why just Narine stall only?”When asked if she is given a stall inside the market if should would relocate, Narine said she is prepared to do so in order to continue earning her livelihood.However in an interview with Guyana Times Anna Regina Town Clerk, Diane Critchlow, said that the Council had given Narine a permanent stall spot on the eastern side of the market, which she refused to occupy.Critchlow explained that the dismantling crew had visited the market Wednesday to dismantle stalls on the roadway. However, she was informed that only Narine’s stall was destroyed and could not say why this was done.Nevertheless, the Town Clerk pointed out that vendors along the road shoulders at the Anna Regina old market area were given notices since a month ago to remove all permanent structures.last_img read more

first_imgNext outing of the Glencar Inn Golf Society will take place at Letterkenny Golf Club, on Sunday 5th May, tee off time 10.30 am.It will be our first major competition of the season, it will be for the Joe Dorrian Memorial Cup.Going by the last outing in murvagh, Martin Kelly should be a strong favourite, followed by Liam Sweeney, Liam coming off a good run of form lately with back to back wins in Westport, not ruling out his brother Keiran, (when he gets his swing right) he will be hard to beat on the day. But there is a lot of dark horses in the field including Liam Collins, on his day he will be hard to catch, Brian Carney our Captain for 2013 will certainly be there to keep a steady ship.But sadly our friend Tadgh Culbert, who sadly passed away last week after a short illness, we will miss him for his good and funny humour on and off the course, Tadgh would always give good info on how we should have played that shot that never went right, and when the match was over it was back to the club house, where he would go hole for hole to see were we went wrong, there was never a dark moment with Tadgh he was always up beat, nothing ever got him down.Tadgh himself would never boast about golf (only about Tipperary), he was larger that life, the soul of our society, on behalf of the Glencar Inn Golf Society, we would send our condolences to his wife Hilda, son Andrew and daughter Lisa, and to his brothers and sister, and to so many friends from Letterkenny and surrounding areas, RIP Tadgh you will be sadly missed.

But what if Leeds didn’t sell Cantona to Man United? looks at key moments in football history, where events could so easily have taken a different course and asks, what if? Here, we ponder what if Leeds United had not sold Eric Cantona to bitter rivals Man United…The storyCantona and Man United were a perfect fit. His arrival for £1.2m on 26 November, 1992, coincided with them winning their first four Premier League titles, where they had previously gone 26 years without finishing top of the old First Division.Not only did Cantona’s presence influence matters on the pitch, it had a great effect on the younger players emerging from the famed United youth system. They all wanted to impress the Frenchman and their skills and attributes were honed under the talismanic forward’s watchful eye on the training ground.“I remember Eric’s first day, and after the training session had finished he asked for a goalkeeper, two players from the junior team who were still there, and a few footballs,” Sir Alex Ferguson once explained. 4 4 Sir Alex Ferguson says Cantona’s commitment to training was second to none Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ 4 Cantona is one of the best loved players in Man United’s history Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions With such swagger, United fans will tell you he was born to play for the club and they still refer to him as ‘King Eric’ Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars That wasn’t the Wilkinson way. “He wanted his players to be disciplined and adhere to a certain team pattern. Eric just didn’t fit it,” former Leeds chairman Bill Fotherby told, as the 1992/93 season moved into the autumn, United were struggling for results and needed a forward after summer signing Dion Dublin had broken his leg.In a conversation with Man United chairman Martin Edwards, Ferguson lamented the fact that he had missed out on signing Cantona earlier in the year. Then the phone rang. It was Fotherby, enquiring whether the Red Devils’ full-back Denis Irwin was for sale.He wasn’t, but Edwards asked if Leeds would consider selling their star striker: Lee Chapman. In the background, Ferguson frantically motioned for Edwards to ask about the availability of a different player. In the end, he scribbled the name ‘Cantona’ on a piece of paper and shoved it under Edwards’ nose. REPLY ADVICE no dice Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade RANKED Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury center_img Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card The main beneficiaries had Cantona not been sold to Man United would have been Aston Villa.When Cantona joined, United were eighth, seven points off the pace, having lost four games. After his arrival the team won 18, drew six and lost just two, en route to the title.Without Cantona, it’s quite likely Villa – who pushed the Red Devils hard in 1992/93 – would have finished top of the pile.In fact, Cantona won the championship every year bar one between his arrival in England in 1992 and his retirement in 1997.The only season he failed to picked up a title winner’s medal was in 1994/95, when United missed out by failing to beat West Ham in their final game – Cantona was absent having been suspended from the end of January and, in all probability, would have been the difference between winning and losing.As always, this is just subjective because nobody can really know what may or may not have happened (we have to point this out because people take it seriously) but it’s a pretty interesting thought or a frightening one if you’re a Red.“Sometimes people just move to a certain club at a certain time and become something they would never have been anywhere else,” Fotherby said.MOREWhat if Alex Ferguson didn’t win the FA Cup in 1990?What if QPR were able to stop Liverpool’s European Cup domination before it began?What if Dennis Bergkamp had scored his penalty against Man United in 1999?What if Gazza joined Man United instead of Spurs? shining In addition to four Premier League titles, Cantona also won two FA Cups with United BEST OF REVEALED Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Most Popular Football News huge blow Within an hour the deal was on, a £1.2m fee was agreed and Leeds had effectively handed their rivals a player who transformed the landscape of English football in Man United’s favour.The Elland Road faithful had loved him. There’s no doubt it was a source of frustration he was sold to them for such a small amount. The fact that, as reigning English champions, their fortunes plummeted just as Cantona’s and Man United’s soared, made it hard to swallow.The Frenchman made his Red Devils debut in December 1992 and started a further 21 games, scoring nine goals in what was the beginning of a golden period for the club. In addition, ‘Ooh ahh, Cantona’ quickly caught on at Old Trafford and a hero was born.“I played with him for two full seasons and we won a title both times, the first of them almost single-handedly down to him,” Gary Neville, who broke into the senior side during the Cantona era, said.Fergie, one of his biggest fans, seems to agree. “It was his mere presence and his ability to make and score goals,” he said.Cantona’s decision to retire in May 1997 at the age of 30 stunned everyone and it also left a massive hole up front, as Arsenal won the double while they finished trophyless.But what if Leeds didn’t sell him to Man United?Remember, he didn’t fit in at Leeds, so it seems highly doubtful that, had Cantona stayed at Elland Road, he would have inspired them to a period of domination.He had proven difficult to handle for a number of managers, and even a recommendation to Wilkinson from Cantona’s former national team manager, Michel Platini, came with a warning about his reputation.Ferguson, though, was well aware of this and still decided the gamble was worth it. The esteem in which he held Cantona in is not an exaggeration, and as important as the Frenchman was to Man United’s success, it’s doubtful he would have flourished as well without Ferguson’s guiding hand.If Leeds hadn’t sent him to Old Trafford, it is not outlandish to think the Frenchman would have spent the next few years bouncing around clubs and falling out with everyone who crossed his path, as he previously had done.Fergie described him as the ‘perfect player, in the perfect club at the perfect time’, while Bill Fotherby believes the Old Trafford supremo wasn’t as strict as Wilkinson was, which allowed Cantona more freedom as a result.Would another manager have indulged Cantona as much?It’s doubtful he would have joined someone like Arsenal – league winners in 1991 – considering it was an era when the equally strict Gunners boss George Graham was buying functional players like John Jensen and replacing skilful Anders Limpar with Eddie McGoldrick.Graeme Souness at Anfield, meanwhile, was offered Cantona in 1991 but opted against signing a ‘problem player’, saving his cash instead for subsequent flops including Paul Stewart (1992) and Nigel Clough (1993). MONEY When word got around that it was because the club’s new number seven wanted extra practice, the manager revealed that, little by little, more players began turning up and following his example. “That was all because of Cantona’s work ethic and influence,” Fergie added.Just before he became a Man United player, Cantona had been a member – albeit briefly – of the well-oiled Leeds side that pipped the Red Devils to the 1991/92 title.However, despite him scoring a hat-trick in the 1992 Charity Shield against Liverpool at Wembley, then bagging the first ever Premier League hat-trick against Tottenham, Leeds manager Howard Wilkinson clashed with his skilful striker. It was a situation that would prove a godsend for the other United.Ask any Man United fan who saw Cantona play and they will tell you he was a joy to watch. As a showman, he loved walking onto the Old Trafford pitch with his collar up as thousands screamed his name. He lapped it up. Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?

first_img10th November 2011I hope everyone enjoyed the Halloween season both safely and sensibly.Today I wanted to share a story with you which I hope will give you food for thought. A lady rang me the other week in tears looking for advice with her 16 month old Labrador. She has had her since she was 8 weeks old and she had take the pup to the puppy classes, and obedience classes at her local trainer and was delighted with the results :- a happy well socialised pup!After the two courses, the lady was proud to take her dog for walks in the park and the beach and did this every day.Her circumstances changed and she fell pregnant.. this wasn’t a easy pregnancy and she had many days she was very unwell.Months passed and she had a healthy baby girl and was very happy. The dog unfortunately started to play up and started to chew furniture, urinate on the floor and jumping up on all the visitors. The lady rang me as she was at the end of her tether and frightened the dog would hurt the baby. Plus she was forever cleaning up!Where could I recommend for her to take the dog to be re-homed??I was shocked! I explained gently to her that the dog was feeling neglected and pushed out… with all the upset of the pregnancy and the new arrival, the dog was no longer taken for daily walks and the training was not kept up!After a long conversation, we agreed to set up some rules and retrain the dog.Happily things are working out and mother, baby and dog are now living in almost harmony! The reason for this story is that whatever happens in your personal life, don’t forget your pets.. Don’t give up on them too quickly, seek help as there is always a solution to things if you really want one. Remember, they give you their love and loyalty unconditionally and will help pull you through those dark days!For anyone in a similar situation, anyone who feels they can’t cope any longer, please, reach out and ask for help.CLARE BOYLE’S DOG BLOG was last modified: November 10th, 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:CLARE BOYLE’S DOG BLOGlast_img read more


first_imgParticipants getting ready to take part in Friday’s event.The people of Donegal are being urged to take a stand this month and dance to demand an end to violence against women by joining the One Billion Rising day of action on February 14.The Donegal event will take place in front of the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny between 1pm and 2pm on February 14, forming part of a massive global campaign.Local organiser Kate Brown said she is hoping a huge crowd will attend to join forces with people all across the world coming together to rise, release, dance in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end to violence against women and girls. “We hosted the first One Billion Rising event in Donegal on Valentine’s Day last year and we were delighted with the response. A very large crowd came to sing and dance in front of An Grianán Theatre.“It was a celebratory event, in that we celebrated our freedom to dance and to get our voices heard, but the campaign carries with it an important message – that violence against women and girls must end.”Kate says this year’s event does not clash with mid-term break holidays and she is encouraging students and their teachers to come and lend their support to the lunchtime rising campaign. Music, dance, song and poetry will form part of the hour-long event.She explained that the One Billion Rising name for the campaign comes from the fact that one in three women and girls will be beaten and raped in their life time. With a current female global population of three billion, that adds up to the staggering one billion figure. In 2013 activists in 207 different countries came together for the biggest mass action in human history to demand an end to violence against women and girls.“This year, the focus is on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence,” she added.The event though is not just for women and Kate says she would love to see as many women, girls and the men and boys who love them to gather to make their voices heard.“Last year we had people from across the spectrum, young and old, male and female, all prepared to show their support through dance for a campaign that aims to end violence against women and girls and this year we’re hoping for the same broad range of people and hopefully bigger numbers.”Across the world the campaigns will take place outside courthouses, school administration buildings, work places, places of worship, military courts, embassies and in other public gathering spaces. “This year’s campaign is about rising for justice. It is about deepening last year’s campaign and bringing, as so many wonderful agencies in Donegal are doing on a daily basis, information into the public arena about what survivors of gender violence need and deserve.” Kate added.For more information about One Billion Rising you can find details on the One Billion Rising Donegal Facebook page and by logging on to the global campaign website – www.onebillionrising.orgDONEGAL EVENT CALLS ON PEOPLE TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST VIOLENCE TO WOMEN was last modified: February 12th, 2014 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:One Billion Risinglast_img read more

Lack of playing time bothering Cammalleri

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Murray wouldn’t tip his hand about tonight’s game, other than to say that he was considering again playing seven defensemen. Regardless, Cammalleri was the odd man out twice already, which certainly says something. Murray explained that Cammalleri sat in part because he’s not a strong penalty killer, but the Kings have had to kill only 10 power plays in the last two games combined, compared to 12 in the first game. Cammalleri, in his third season, is still looking for consistency at the NHL level. He was second in the American Hockey League in scoring last season and started training camp this year on a line alongside Alexander Frolov and Jeremy Roenick, a unit that has since been broken up. “I want to play and I want to help the team win hockey games,” Cammalleri said. “(Murray) has a job to do and I have a job to do. I just come to the rink and work. “I didn’t play much in the Dallas game (nine-plus minutes) and it wasn’t a positive game for us. He wanted to make some changes and I guess he decided I should be one of those changes.” Jason LaBarbera will start in goal tonight against Edmonton as the Kings continue to alternate goaltenders. Mathieu Garon stopped 24 of 25 shots Sunday against Minnesota. “It looked like the thing to do,” Murray said of switching to LaBarbera, who made 27 saves in a 3-2 victory Thursday. “We reserve the right to change at any time.” Murray said he would wait until Wednesday to name a starter for Thursday’s game. Jeff Cowan (groin) likely won’t return until Sunday at the earliest. Richard Petiot (ribs) is close to returning, which likely will mean a ticket to Manchester because although Murray said he has been impressed by Petiot’s practice play, there isn’t room on the roster for him. Rich Hammond can be reached at (818) 713-3607. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! EL SEGUNDO — This was supposed to be Michael Cammalleri’s season, his chance to break out. But so far, Cammalleri has watched more games than he has played for the Kings. A healthy scratch for two of the Kings’ three games, Cammalleri appeared visibly frustrated when the topic was brought up Monday. It didn’t seem to mean much that Murray has explained Cammalleri’s absence by saying that it’s more of a matchup issue than a dissatisfaction with Cammalleri’s play. center_img Asked if Murray had explained the situation well, Cammalleri said, “I don’t know. Next question.” Cammalleri calmly and politely spoke about his situation. Murray said Cammalleri didn’t play Thursday because the coach wanted a more physical lineup. Murray said Cammalleri didn’t play Sunday because the Kings thought it would be better to dress seven defensemen. last_img read more
