first_imgThe municipality of Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) has boosted its capacity with the recent addition of a $16 million John Deere mobile backhoe to its existing fleet of equipment.Acting Mayor Wainewright Bethune said the new piece of equipment, which was purchased using the municipality’s subvention, would aid in the digging of drains, filling of potholes, backfilling of eroded areas, and the clearing of roadsides and other spaces.Bethune noted that the multi-purpose piece of equipment will bring much-neededThe new piece of equipmentrelief to the Linden community.“Definitely, it will bring some changes with all of the work that we have to do, and improve some of the things that we’re doing in and around the community … It will also help with the garbage situation, clearing these little illegal dumpsites. It would help even with the mechanical work in and around the Council … We decided that we would have purchased this piece of equipment sometime in August of last year because we recognise the amount and the variety of work we have to do in the township that this piece of equipment would be appropriate for,” Bethune noted.He added that the equipment would be operated by municipal workers, noting that the Council recently undertook the repair of several minor roads in the town and the new equipment was expected to help expedite works.He noted that with the upcoming Mashramani and Town Week celebrations, efforts would be made to ensure the community was clean.As such, he urged residents to aid in the drive to beautify their surroundings.

He noted that while there were a lot of areas which the Council was lacking in, it was urging all public and private stakeholders to come on board and collaborate with resources.last_img read more

Lauritzen’s flip-flop

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Lauritzen’s change of heart shows why we need competitive elections in Los Angeles – something usually lacking. The risk of losing an election helps make public officials do what’s right for the people. Lauritzen, a consistent anti-charter voice, undoubtedly owes his enlightenment more to his desire to win the May 15 runoff election than to any sudden awakening to the fact that the public has lost faith in the LAUSD and is hoping charters will do a better job for the kids. So voters need to ask themselves where Lauritzen will stand if he wins the election: Will he close his eyes to charters once again – as his union backers demand – or will he stay on the side of those trying to improve the educational system? JON Lauritzen must see the writing on the wall when it comes to charter schools. That’s why the Los Angeles Unified School District board member from the San Fernando Valley, who’s in a ferocious fight to win re-election against challenger Tamar Galaztan, has suddenly gone from opposing a charter-school expansion in Watts to being a friend of charters. When it came to a vote, Lauritzen opposed a plan to grant eight charters to Green Dot Public Schools at Locke High School. But after being heavily criticized for his vote, and surely thinking about how it would play on election day next month, he flip-flopped and agreed to back a plan to allow the highly successful charter program to cooperate in reforming Locke. Same guy, same idea. last_img read more

Video referee landmark as Bayern claim opening win

first_img0Shares0000Bayern Munich’s Polish forward Robert Lewandowski celebrates scoring a goal during the German First division Bundesliga football match against Leverkusen August 18, 2017 © dpa/AFP / Sven HoppeBERLIN, Germany, Aug 19 – Robert Lewandowski converted a second-half penalty, awarded by a video assistant referee intervention, as champions Bayern Munich opened the 2017/18 Bundesliga season with a 3-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen on Friday.The video assistant referee is being trialled in the Bundesliga this season and came into play for the first time to spot that Lewandowski was fouled in the area in the second-half. The Polish striker dutifully slotted home the penalty to put Bayern 3-0 up after new signings Germany defender Niklas Suele and France midfielder Corentin Tolisso scored with first-half headers.Leverkusen deservedly pulled a goal back at 3-0 down when Swiss striker Admir Mehmedi capped off a bright passage of play with a fierce shot.“That was a special day for me — my first game for my new club and my first goal, that was nice,” said Suele.Leverkusen’s Germany defender Jonathan Tah was left ruing his side’s poor first-half display.“We were asleep in the first half and conceded stupid goals,” said Tah.On a dramatic opening night, the start of the second half was also delayed by 15 minutes as torrential rain swept the stadium.Having won last season’s German league title — their fifth in a row — by 15 points, the thumping win in Munich suggests Bayern are in no mood to relax their iron-grip on the Bundesliga title.The hosts were missing a host of injured stars at Munich’s rain-lashed Allianz Arena including new club captain Manuel Neuer, defender Jerome Boateng and new-signing James Rodriguez.Nevertheless, it took just nine minutes for Bayern to go ahead.Centre-back Suele nodded Sebastian Rudy’s free-kick past his Germany teammate, Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno.Bayern doubled their lead when the club’s record signing Tolisso, who cost 41.5 million euros ($48.6m) from Lyon, headed home on 18 minutes when Arturo Vidal found him in the box.Tolisso could have scored again soon after when he hit the post.Bayern Munich’s striker Robert Lewandowski (C) and Leverkusen’s defender Benjamin Henrichs (R) vie for the ball during the German First division Bundesliga football match August 18, 2017 © AFP / Guenter SCHIFFMANNTorrential rain then forced the start of the second-half to be delayed by 15 minutes.The stadium briefly emptied in the break as supporters sought shelter before resuming their soaking wet seats.Leverkusen’s new coach Heiko Herrlich responded to his side’s woeful defending in the first half with two changes for the second 45 minutes.Germany winger Julian Brandt replaced Jamaica’s Leon Bailey and defender Aleksandar Dragovic replaced new signing Sven Bender at centre-back.It changed little and when Chile international Charles Aranguiz pulled Lewandowski to the floor as Bayern attacked, the VAR spotted the foul and the Polish striker converted the resulting spot kick on 53 minutes.Moments later, Neuer’s understudy Sven Ulreich proved his worth in the Bayern goal to deny Brandt, then Dominik Kohr in quick succession.With an hour played, Bayern’s stand-in captain Thomas Mueller made way for Arjen Robben.Leverkusen showed heart when Brandt’s pass found Mehmedi unmarked on 65 minutes and the Swiss international slotted home their consolation.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Vieira: I’m ready if Arsenal need me

first_img0Shares0000After coaching Manchester City reserves Patrick Vieira took over the reins at New York CityNEW YORK, United States, Apr 26- Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira believes he is ready to take over as manager of the Premier League club but says he has not been in contact with them.With current Gunners boss Arsene Wenger leaving at the end of the season, after 22 years at the north London outfit, various managers have been touted as potential replacements, and Vieira is no exception. “If the question is, if I’m ready. Yes, I’m ready,” he told Goal.However, when asked if Arsenal had contacted him, he said: “Honestly and seriously, no. I still have, of course, next year.“It is going to be my contract at least until the end of the season and then after that, anything can happen.“But I have a contract until the end of the season.”The New York City FC manager has led his team to the top of the MLS Eastern Conference after eight games, losing only once. However, a move elsewhere is unlikely as he is contracted to the club until the end of 2018.“When your name is linked with big teams in Europe, it’s good,” he added. “That shows that people are following what you are doing and you are doing a good job.“What is important for me is to focus and concentrate about what I’m doing at the moment.“My head and my mind and my energy is on how to win the next game.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Watch: Road Safe Road Show teaches students a crucial lesson

first_imgA shocking, upsetting and vitally important message is being brought home to over 2,500 Donegal students this week during the Road Safe Road Show.The Aura Leisure Centre was buzzing with chat and laughter this morning when the first groups of students arrived from post-primary schools all over Donegal.By the end of the hour-long show, the hall was almost silent. MC Charlie Collins sharing road-death statistics at the Road Safe Road Show by Donegal County Council and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group in the Aura Leisure Centre Letterkenny, 8th October 2019The students had heard hard-hitting stories of road accidents and fatalities from local emergency service workers, a road crash survivor and from a mother who had lost her beloved daughter.Denise Harley, mother of the late Kym Harley from Ballybofey, talked about the anguish of losing her daughter in a collision in 2014.“She had so much to live for,” Denise told the crowd. Speaking on the eve of Kym’s birthday, 9th October, Denise said: “Please don’t let that be you, that your mum or dad has to stand at your grave.”The Road Show also featured Lizzie Keys, from Tyrone, who was paralysed as a result of an accident at the age of 19. Life is precious, Lizzie told the students, as she warned them that split-second decisions can change a life forever. Representatives of An Garda Siochana, the Fire Service, Ambulance Service and Emergency Department at Letterkenny University Hospital gave eye-opening insights on the emotional and often graphic realities of attending a crash scene. Their stories were linked by a fictional account of a young local man who had just passed his driving test. But on the night of his celebrations, his dangerous driving led to a crash which took his girlfriend’s life and left him permanently injured.The authorities, medics and emergency workers also talked about how real accidents impact them personally. Their shared view was that they hoped drivers would heed the warnings so that they would never have to attend senseless crashes ever again.The Road Safe Road Show continues on Tuesday 9th October. The event has been attended by more than 30,000 students since it began in Donegal in 2007.The Road Safe Road Show is a unique partnership between Donegal County Council and members of the Donegal Road Safety Working Group which provides a platform to positively influence the driving behaviour of young students as they commence their driving careers or who travel as passengers in cars.Road Safety Officer Brian O’Donnell said: “We need to get the message to all road users that before they get into a car with a driver who exceeds the speed limit, or someone who may be under the influence of drink, or who has taken drugs, or by not wearing their seatbelts, or who use their mobile phone while driving; to stop and think, because the devastation and heartbreak that is brought on your family and on the local community as a result of a road traffic collision is totally avoidable.” Watch: Road Safe Road Show teaches students a crucial lesson was last modified: October 8th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:donegal road safety working grouproad safe road showlast_img read more
