first_imgExperienced campaigner Richard ‘Spoon’ McCallum has retired as goalkeeper of Red Stripe Premier League club Waterhouse FC. He is now acting general secretary at the Drewsland-based club. “I have retired because of personal reasons, to pursue a bachelors degree in production and operation,” said McCallum, who stood between the sticks at Waterhouse for 12 years, during an interview with The Gleaner yesterday. “The club was notified two months ago, and it is effective as at December 31, 2015,” he added. McCallum was approached to take up a position as general secretary, at the club because Felix Porter has vacated the post due to health reasons. “The club (Waterhouse) approached me to be acting general secretary, and I duly accepted the post,” McCallum informed. He said the players in the senior team at the club expressed regrets with him leaving at this time. “I spoke to the players, and some have expressed regrets and want me to delay the decision, but I have to think about life after football. I can’t continue to focus on goalkeeping and school at the same time,” McCallum said. McCallum also represented Invaders FC for one year and Seba (now Montego Bay United) for three years, before journeying from St James to St Andrew. He made his international debut for Jamaica in 2006, and also represented the country at the Under-17, Under-20 and Under-23 levels.last_img read more

Revival In-form wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton continued his good batting exploits with a stroke-filled century on yesterday’s first day of the sixth round WICB Four-day Tournament clash between leaders Jamaica Scorpions and second-place Guyana Jaguars at Sabina Park. One of the outstanding performers for Jamaica during the just-concluded WICB Regional Super50 tournament,Walton compiled a topscore of 101 as Jamaica, asked to bat first, posted a competitive 255 in their first innings. Guyana, who are eyeing a third straight hold on the crown with five rounds of matches to go, then closed the day in a comfortable position at 69 without loss. Recent West Indies Under-19 World Cup winning captain, Shimron Hetmyer with a well-played 51, and Tagnarine Chanderpaul, 14, are the not out batsmen, who are set to resume today when play gets underway at 10am. “I am a bit disappointed for not going on and making a bigger century, but nevertheless I will take it,” said Walton, who was notching his second first-class ton. “I would rate it as one of my better first-class innings as it was a challenging wicket and one had to buckle down and concentrate as long as possible.” Walton, who scored a century in the semi-finals of the Super50, and followed up with another for the WICB President’s XI against touring England, was best supported by young batsman Brandon King, who scored 30. The pair also shared the highest partnership of the innings, 78 for the fourth wicket, before King was dismissed caught off the bowling of impressive fast bowler, Keon Joseph, with the score on 181.last_img read more

first_img– 30.5% of proceeds for community developmentThe Kwakwani community in Region 10 (Upper Demerara- Berbice) is expected to reap the economic benefits associated with the recent handing over of a barge by the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL).Regional Vice Chairman Alroy Adolph said 30.5 per cent of the proceeds would go to the community, which would greatly help in its development.He noted that previously the community did not benefit from any of the revenue generated by the barge, which for years was operated by a private owner. Passengers using the vessel would usually pay $200 for a return trip, while motor vehicles crossed at a cost of $2000. Larger trucks had a crossing charge of $16,000.Adolph said in an effort to facilitate the handover, an official document was sent to the Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) Chairperson through Winston Rosario of NICIL. He noted that the vessel was working under a two-month contract undertaken with private company Edwards to see how it would work out.The barge, located at the crushing plant, was officially expected to recommence activities on Monday. According to Adolph, a number of logging trucks and Canters which were stalled pending the way forward were expected to cross the waterway.“It’s a plus to the community because when you look at 30.5 per cent based upon how many vehicles cross, looking at two trucks per day, that would give you approximately $240,000 for the month and it’s a plus to the community because about two or three persons would be employed,” he said.Apart from the barge, he noted that the NDC would benefit from the collection of rates and taxes.last_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,With the Golden Jubilee being such a pivotal milestone for this dear land of ours, and with thousands joining each other to celebrate the Guyanese culture, and to rejoice in our shared experiences and values as we move forward to a brighter future, it was extremely sad to see City workers who worked so hard to prepare the C0ity being prevented from enjoying the fruits of their labour.Of all the times the Georgetown City Council chose to delay the payment of wages and salaries was the month of May 2016, our Golden Jubilee month. It is most unpatriotic, it is cruel in fact I would consider it sacrilege.The pockets of the big boys in the Council’s administration are filled; so they could have celebrated in fine style, but it was the small man that suffered, and was prevented from attending the shows and other events.How could Royston King and his merry administrators look into the eyes of the butchers, policemen, street orderlies, construction workers, day qcare attendants, drivers and cleaners and wish them a Happy Independence?During the administration of the previous Town Clerk, never one month was salaries were paid late, because there was never such squandermania.The President or Minister of Communities should have intervened and saved those poor workers. Where is the Union?Sincerely,Jermain Johnsonlast_img read more

first_imgThe presentation of an early budget is not as glorious as the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) claims; it in fact leaves room for greater abuse of Government spending.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoIn continuing to mount opposition against the presentation of an early budget, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo argued that the early budget puts the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) parliamentarians at a major disadvantage when debating the financial expenditures of the government in the National Assembly.“There is nothing unique about this early budget. It just puts us in a difficult position because we are not going to have actual figures; puts us at a severe disadvantage to scrutinise the budget the way it should be,” he told a recent news conference.Budget 2017 will be laid in the National Assembly by Finance Minister Winston Jordan on November 28.Former Junior Finance Minister Juan EdghillTherefore, the administration would have to prepare estimates of what will be spent in the days after the presentation of the budget until the end of the fiscal year, December 31.“So they will have actual expenditures up to just before they go to print and an estimate of what is to be spent between 20 November, or whenever they decide, to December 31. This now leaves room for greater abuse and I think this is one of the reasons why they are bringing an early budget,” Jagdeo explained.The Opposition Leader asserted that there will be a month of “basically the Government being able to do what it wants because it would have come to Parliament with a figure but that figure would have had projections.”He outlined that: “I could be arguing about a shortfall in revenue and then in December you have a surge in revenue or I could be praising the Government for meeting all of the fiscal criteria, meeting the target on fiscal deficit, then in December you have a huge expenditure or a revenue position that falls short of what was projected for December and you have a bigger deficit. So I will never be able to debate that in the Parliament.”Former Junior Finance Minister Juan Edghill had expressed his belief that government’s early budget presentation was a means of evading public scrutiny: “We are very concerned if this is another three-card trick that is being played out in the public where we are going to be duped. Is this another form of corruption to hide underperformance and create opportunities for greater levels of corruption….?”Edghill maintained that there was no haste for an early budget presentation, noting that historically, the country’s budget was presented in the first quarter of the fiscal year. He noted too that there were already mechanisms in place for the interim spending of the Government, which is 1/12 of the previous budget, until the new budget is presented and passed.last_img read more

first_imgDigicel Youth Cricket Series kicked off in April several months ahead of the Hero CPL 2018 tournament. The DYCS was taken to several CPL markets where young aspiring cricketers got a chance to meet and learn from their ‘heroes’ CPL brand ambassadors like Devindra Bishoo, Steven Jacobs, Johnson Charles and Anderson Phillip among others. On Saturday Digicel Guyana and CPL gave twenty deserving youths from Royal Rangers cricket club in Enmore a chance of a lifetime to meet members of the Guyana Amazon Warriors team shortly before play on Saturday. After the meet and greet the youths got to stay and watch the Guyana Amazon Warriors take on the St. Lucia Stars, compliments of Digicel, something many of them never thought possible. “We are very pleased to be a part of this activity today, simply because providing these young people with an ‘experience’ and the possibility of changing the course of their lives through cricket is what the DYCS is all about. We are giving them opportunity to experience CPL first hand and meet and learn from their heroes. This is the essence of cricket, to foster development and growth of tomorrow’s generation. CPL exemplifies this not only in Guyana but throughout the region and Digicel cannot be any prouder to be a part of this, Vidya Sanichara of Digicel said.The youths ranging from ages 12 to 17 were given this opportunity by Digicel and CPL are mostly from broken homes with not a lot of offered opportunities. Pastor Mahendra Sharma and other members from his Church, Foulis Elim Pentecostal church have taken the boys under the wings and formed a cricket club. They are using the sport of cricket to impart a sense of family and discipline for the boys, which they hope will give the lads a feeling of purpose by keeping them off the streets and interested sports. “This is a great opportunity given to us by Digicel today, this means a great deal to these boys and us. Many of them feel that no one cares for them and for a big company like Digicel to reach out to a small cricket club like ours is really touching to us. We will never forget this day, thank you Digicel, thank you” noted Sharma.For its second year the Digicel CPL Youth Series continues to foster youth engagement and development. It has been conducted in the six competing CPL countries – Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Kitts & Nevis, and St. Lucia and has provided more children the opportunity to hone their cricket skills and learn from the best talent in the game.

first_imgTHE EURO gained more than 1.35c against sterling today – making the € worth 86.2p sterling.The rapid collapse of sterling was based on poor economic figures in the UK where the economy contracted by 0.5% in the last three months of 2010.The news is bad for Donegal retailers after several weeks of a weaker € made our goods and services more competitive with the North. The UK Office for National Statistics blamed the poor weather in November and December for the shock contraction in the UK economy.British chancellor George Obsborne said: “These are obviously disappointing numbers, but the ONS has made it very clear that the fall in GDP was driven by the terrible weather in December.“We have had the coldest weather since records began in 1910 and this has clearly had a much bigger impact on the economy than anyone expected. It’s notable that sectors of the economy that are less affected by the poor weather, such as manufacturing, continue to perform strongly, helping to rebalance our economy.”In all of these fluctuations there are winners and losers. Donegal people working in the North will take home less pay as a result of the collapse in the pound.EURO SURGES AGAINST STERLING AS DOUBLE DIP RECESSION FEARS HIT UK was last modified: January 25th, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img read more
