MPW Explains Hurdles to Road Construction

first_imgAlthough, the Ministry of Public Works (MPW) has explained the delay in construction of the Police Academy Road in Paynesville as due to lack of funding, residents of the Police Academy Community have called upon the government to address the environmental hazard being caused on the road by copious amounts of dust leftover from incomplete construction.The Assistant Minister for Operations and Construction at the MPW, William L. Slour, made the disclosure on Monday, January 6, to some residents of the community at his office in Monrovia.The residents convened the meeting to seek the MPW’s attention in solving the environmental problem the dust is causing in their community.    At least 820 students are currently not in class at the Ann Sandell Independent School along the Police Academy road in Paynesville as dust from the unpaved road has covered every surface of the campus.Some residents of the area have reported experiencing health problems as a result of inhaling the dust.Explaining to the residents at the meeting, Minister Slour disclosed that the company could not continue the road project due to lack of compensation for those whose structures are to be demolished.“The Government has not provided the money needed for the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) in order to implement the road project. We have learnt that the company is therefore opting to discontinue. RAP being put into effect, is the only way the project can continue”, he disclosed.The road construction is being undertaken by CHICO, a Chinese construction company.The Public Works Assistant Minister promised to apply all efforts in addressing the concerns of the Police Academy residents.“We are going to contact the management of CHICO to sprinkle water on the road in order to reduce the dust as part of their social responsibility,” he concluded.The Daily Observer contacted the management of CHICO and will tackle the story from their angle in a follow-up article.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

JustPrince

first_imgIt all started when a very emotional Ebola track “Ebola stay away from Africa” was aired on Hottfm 107.9 on “Disturbing the Peace’s” late night radio show.Nearly a hundred callers called in wanting to know more about the artist behind the song, and why Ebola mattered to him so much.Luckily, we were able to contact the Liberian performer who’s been contributing for many years of essential instrumentals, songs and hope for Liberian music.Prince Sherman Thomas, commonly known as ‘JustPrince’ is an artist worth talking about; he’s also the powerful voice behind the Ebola track. He’s been adding flavor to some of your favorite songs and working with some Gospel and R&B headliners.“I have been fortunate to work with big artists such as Jeff Majors and Trinitee 5-7.  I was also on a production team for Whitney Houston. I am a member of Glorious Lamps International and we were privileged to be in a concert with Hezekiah Walker. And on a more international level, I have worked with Sonnie Badu and the Prophet Seth Bah,” JustPrince says.What’s important in this deadly Ebola fight knowing that spirited people such as JustPrince feels the pain of those who have been affected directly. According to him, he came out with the emotional track “Ebola stay away from Africa” after learning he had also lost a relative to the deadly disease.“I became inspired to do the Ebola song following the death of my cousin Sharon Washington from the virus. In my grief, the words “Ebola stay away from Africa” came to me and I immediately got up around two in the morning and went to the studio to record it,” he shared.Though many Liberians have stories to tell about their own experiences, we hope that one-day they all will be told. While Ebola is said to be slowly winding down in these parts, there’s another battle to be fought: the fact that many Liberians at home and abroad are being stigmatized.“Ebola has affected me as a Liberian who is here in America because it’s my home and day by day I am hearing and watching my fellow country men and women passing away.  Food is said to be scarce because the markets can’t open. I personally still have family back home whom I’m unable to protect. I would like to encourage all those in Africa who have been plagued by the Ebola virus to stay prayerful, continue to trust in GOD who is the master healer. It may not seem like it right now, but Ebola will pass,” he says.JustPrince has been musically gifted for quite awhile, and has his own story to tell. The strong spirit that can be felt through his voice in his Ebola track doesn’t just come from deep within. But the force in his lyrics comes from a past that he didn’t mind sharing with LIB LIFE.“As an artist in the gospel spectrum, I reflect back from time to time on some of the things God has allowed me to go through,” he narrates.  “I started to play the piano at a very young age and over time I was given many opportunities for my skills to grow. But as a young child, I became seriously ill. I was so sick that I was literally knocking on death’s door, but GOD healed me.“I chose to be a gospel artist because I grew up in a Christian home. Over the years God has done many great things in my life. For instance, during the war, one of the rebel soldiers wanted to execute me and again GOD delivered me,” he testified.Meanwhile, JustPrince has made a lot of hearts warmer through his Ebola track. He has helped many to cope with the reality of the damage caused by Ebola when it’s eradicated. He’s also helping to develop the capacities of other Liberian musical artists.  The latest about to grow under his tutelage will be the Liberian gospel vocal powerhouse, Bernice Blackie, who is presently in the USA.“I have had the great pleasure in giving back to the Liberian community musically and the joy of building up artists and watching them grow into their GOD given potential.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Over 500 online signatures gathered to save historical gallery

first_imgRelocation of Walter Roth MuseumGovernment seems to be clueless about where it will be relocating the Walter Roth Museum, and as the days progress, Guyanese from all walks of life are expressing their disappointment at such a move.People’s Progressive Party Chief Whip Gail Teixeira on Friday said the more than 500 online signatures to the petition to save the museum, has also seen widespread condemnation for the move by the Ministry of the Presidency to have the museum relocated:“The latest insult of Government to the Amerindian citizen is the move by the President to remove the Walter Roth Museum and the way it was done by having GDF soldiers moving in to inform staff that they had to move was even scarier.”The current location of the Walter Roth MuseumShe said the museum is a “living tribute to the Amerindian Peoples of Guyana from prehistoric times to now.” Ironically, she said, like the decision to relocate the Stabroek Market vendors or close the Wales Sugar Estate, “they have no clue where they are relocating this museum” as a mandate given by Junior Minister of Public Infrastructure Annette Ferguson has been unsuccessful.Last week, the Ministry of the Presidency said it was removing the Walter Roth Museum and its employees to the National Museum by the end of the year. This announcement came one day after Guyana Times broke the story about government’s plan to move the museum.The museum was founded with the collections of Guyanese Archaeologist, Dr Denis Williams and in 1980, the ethnographic collections of Dr Walter Roth, Mr JJ Quelch and Sir Everardim Thurn were transferred to the museum from the National Museum. The Walter Roth collections also include excavated artefacts from all 10 Administrative Regions.Former Culture, Youth and Sport Minister, Dr Frank Anthony, had stated that the museum is an institution and instead of dismantling it, “we have to be preserving it and growing it because it has a very important role to play in Guyana.”Dr Anthony said he does not think the President is aware of the space the National Museum has, since it has been overcrowded with its artefacts: “They cannot display their current holdings because there is a lack of space and to move an entire museum and somehow cram it into the space of the National Museum, I don’t think that is possible.”Dr Anthony added that if it is true the President wanted all the museums in one place then the Government would have to construct another building and he does not believe that they are rebuilding the current museum, and “if they are doing that, where are they getting the budget from because there was no budget voted in 2016 for it.”The Walter Roth Museum was established in 1974 but did not open to the public until 1982. It is located on Main Street, Georgetown and is famous for its journals in some of the leading universities of the world.last_img read more

Gov’t must do more to encourage investment – outgoing GCCI President

first_imgThe 127th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), held at Duke Lodge in Kingston, Georgetown on Thursday, saw calls being made for the Government to be bold in creating legislation and a tax structure that would encourage, rather than deter, investment.Outgoing President of GCCI, Vishnu Doerga, expressed the need for more legislation to be tabled that would create opportunities to lift Guyanese out of poverty. He pointed out that the private sector is a key stakeholder in the fight against poverty, since it creates the majority of employment.A section of the gathering of business leaders and representatives“We want a tax structure that will reduce the burden and incentivize growth for the compliant. I must stress for the compliant, because we seem to be in a (situation wherein) the compliant pays for the non-compliant,” he expressed.Doerga says there is need for legislation to be created where absent, or amended where present, in order to improve opportunities for investment. He said investors need to know that they can get a return while at the same time creating higher paying jobs for the local workforce and increased value- added services and products.“We still have the outstanding issue of how (to) deal with the allocation to SMEs (Small-Medium Enterprises) procurement across all our agencies, and then in terms of our commercial law. How do we start focusing on our legal framework so that it makes it easier for people to get legal resolutions to civil conflicts?” he asked.The business executive posited that if an investor wanted to do business but knew there was a risk that litigation may take years to get a result, then that investor may rather not invest. Hence he emphasized the need to make the environment more conducive for doing business.We’ve seen movement in that direction. And that is what we will keep (advocating) for,” he declared. “We’ve also noticed, over the past few years, that while we have been getting early budgets, timely spending of such approved budgetary measures will provide the needed financial stimulus to energize our economy. It’s excellent that our budgets keep increasing. We know it’s being funded with the taxation that also increases hand in hand. But (if) the money isn’t spent and it doesn’t find its way back into the economy, it is of no use,” he explained.He expressed worry that while Guyana has been saving money, but tracing the money and ensuring that it is directed in a way that contributes to national development would be a challenge. He was nevertheless optimistic that transformation was on the horizon for Guyana.“Transformation is inevitable, especially if we look at 2019 and beyond. Guyana will definitely be transformed, but will it be a wealthy, prosperous state, or will we remain for our entire history the land of much potential?” he asked.Doerga disclosed that for the past year, the GCCI has been fixing its internal structural weaknesses. The executive stated that GCCI is upgrading its human resources, and will be aiming to provide more training, support, and add more skills to the organization.Doerga has, over the past year, been outspoken on matters of taxation; in particular the 14 percent Value Added Tax (VAT) which has been placed on private education as well as utility services such as water and electrical. He has also made clear his opposition to the controversial Georgetown parking meter project.The election of the 2016/2017 GCCI council is expected to take place by next week, after which a new executive will take over the reins from Doerga, owner of Doerga Business Enterprises.The GCCI is the oldest private sector representative organization in Guyana. Established in 1889, it is a member-driven and professionally staffed non-profit association of business people who are committed to improving the economic climate and quality of life in Guyana. The GCCI’s mission is to represent the voice of the business community in Guyana, and to advocate policies that would stimulate trade and investment, connect businesses, sustain economic growth and expand member opportunities. All of this is with the aim of contributing to a stable and sustainable economic and social environment in Guyana, wherein businesses can prosper.last_img read more

AFC hints at leaving Coalition after talks breakdown

first_imgThe Alliance For Change (AFC) Thursday hinted strongly at the possibility of leaving the coalition with the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) after talks regarding their Prime Ministerial candidate reached a stalemate.The AFC has made it clear that their Leader Khemraj Ramjattan should be the Prime Ministerial candidate. However, their partner, the APNU, prefers someone else as President David Granger’s running mate.Both parties were in talks over the revision of the Cummingsburg Accord including the selection of a Prime Ministerial candidate. However, those talks have since been stalled owing to both sides refusing to budge on their positions.“We don’t accept that any other party should tell us or dictate to us who we should choose as our Prime Ministerial candidate. Why should we go back to our membership to say let’s have another discussion…on what basis?” Dominic Gaskin contended during a press conference today.“The AFC should name the Prime Ministerial candidate and the APNU should name the Presidential candidate…It’s non-negotiable for us,” Gaskin posited.Moreover, party executives gave strong hints about the possibility of leaving the coalition if Ramjattan is not accepted at the Prime Ministerial candidate.“We are the Alliance for Change and I think we have always said that we are here to form alliances for the benefit of Guyana. So, we have no inherent opposition to forming alliances with anyone,” Gaskin said.last_img read more

Prehistoric horse bone found in the Peace River Valley

first_img“The Valley and its significance to the Treaty 8 First Nations is irreplaceable and the construction of the Site C Dam would be the final nail in the coffin to its already fragile ecosystem, which supports the First Nation people who have lived in this region for at least 500 generations,” writes Treaty 8 Tribal Association.The Peace River Valley is a part of the Treaty 8 landscape – acting as a school, church, pharmacy and grocery store.The story is told that in 2014, Shawn Bigfoot, a Prophet River First Nation member, found the horse bone around a gravel pit along the banks of Peace River.- Advertisement -“The Peace River Valley is home to a tremendous number of First Nations archaeological deposits and cultural sites that date back to the end of the last ice age,” the association writes. “These values are complemented by diverse and prolific paleontological resources found there as well.”At first, Mr. Bigfoot was unsure of what he found.“After Shawn found the bone, he contacted me and told me of his find; he said it looks very old,” the association quotes Diane Bigfoot, Shawn’s mother, as saying. “I decided to take the bone to Treaty 8 and see if we could get it identified. We just did not realize at the time, we were holding a piece of history 30,000 years old.”Advertisement Confirmation of the age of the bone and its species of origin, through radio carbon dating and analysis, was completed with the assistance of archaeologist Dr. Jon Driver from Simon Fraser University, according to the association.The communities of Prophet River First Nation, West Moberly First Nations and McLeod Lake Indian Band are in B.C.

Mane insists Liverpool will not ‘choke’

first_imgPep Guardiola has warned Liverpool of the pressures of being Premier League leaders but Mane expects his team-mates to cope with the run-in, as they look to end the club’s 29-year wait for the title.He said: “This is not a team of chokers. I am sure we will be champions of England.“When I wake up, I don’t go to the training ground thinking we will not win. We are determined to show we are the best team in the league.”Liverpool’s last serious title challenge came during the 2013-14 season when the club finished two points behind Manchester City under Brendan Rodgers.A costly 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at Anfield, coupled with a 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace in the penultimate game of the season, allowed City to come from behind and claim the title.Mane says the current squad will use that disappointment as motivation in the second half of the season.He said: “It is not easy to hear people accuse the team of being chokers but we have to ignore it and focus on what is in front of us.“Liverpool had the chance to win it a few years ago and did not do it but I prefer to think it helped to bring us where we are now.“This is not a team of chokers. I am sure we will win the league.”-By Sky Sports- 0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sadio Mane celebrates after scoring his first goal and Liverpool’s second in a 4-1 win at home to CardiffLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 16 – Sadio Mane is adamant Liverpool will win the Premier League this season and insists the Reds will not “choke” under the pressure of the title race.Jurgen Klopp’s side are four points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City at the top of the league, with 16 games remaining in the campaign.last_img read more
