…as Puran Brothers, Cevons yet to be paidA few days after residents and commuters criticised the state of the garbage-infested capital city, efforts have been made to provide collection services.A new weekly schedule was implemented as of Monday, which will continue until further notice.This move comes after Cevons Waste Management and Puran Brothers Disposal Services withdrew their services as they were owed $160 million. The two companies are yet to be paid by the cash-strapped Mayor and City Council (M&CC).According to the new schedule, on Mondays, collection will be done in Bel Air Springs, Bel Air Gardens, Subryanville, Kitty, Campbellville Housing Scheme, Alberttown, Lamaha Springs, and Lamaha Park.Tuesdays will see solid waste collection in areas such as Werk-en-Rust, Stabroek, Charlestown, Albouystown, Wortmanville, Belvoir Court, Prashad Nagar, NewThe situation which existed over the weekend in the cityHaven, Bel Air Village, Blygezigt, North Sophia, Liliendaal, Turkeyen, Atlantic Ville, Pattensen, Cummings Lodge and Queenstown.There will be a similar process on Wednesdays for Lodge, Lodge Housing Scheme, Thorne’s Drive, Century Palm, Meadow Brook, Tucville Terrace, Guyhoc Park, East La Penitence, North Cummingsburg, West Ruimveldt, East Ruimveldt, Middle Road, Independence Boulevard, Castello Housing Scheme and North East La Penitence.Collection will take shape on Thursdays in South Ruimveldt, Roxanne Burnham Gardens, Shirley Field Ridley Square, Guyhoc Gardens, Alexander Village, River View, Ruimveldt, Laing Avenue, Meadow Bank, Rahaman’s Park, Houston, Mc Doom, Agricola, Evan Phillips Park, South Cummingsburg, Bel Air Park, Newtown, J to K Campbellville, A to D Campbellville, E to I Campbellville and Lamaha Gardens.Meanwhile on Fridays, Festival City, North Ruimveldt, Stevedore Postal Housing Scheme, South Ruimveldt Park, Jacksonville, and Kingstown will be relieved of their solid waste.Guyana Times understands that commercial areas will be covered throughout these five days as well.Meanwhile, the Solid Waste Director, Walter Narine took to social media, assuringGarbage being picked up in Kitty, Georgetown on Mondaycitizens that collection will resume as per normal and empathising with the two solid waste collectors during the impasse.After Cevons Waste Management and Puran Brothers Disposal Services withdrew their operations, there was a public outcry from residents, whose waste was not collected for many days, causing a garbage build-up in the capital city.Businesses were also faced with the same issue and affected on a large scale, since their waste production is herculean. Additionally, this move had some effect on the vendors at Bourda, who decried the slow collection process, as they had to wait for days before the garbage was removed.Services are now provided by five smaller agencies namely Granderson, Trash Tech, Tri Star, C&S Services and Garbage Eaters until a deal is struck between the mainstream contractors and City Hall, which is in a crucial financial dilemma.
Dead: Arianna LatchmanDead: Aaron LatchmanBetter Hope robbery/murder…4 in custody as Police probe ‘hit’ claimAs investigations into the gunning down of money changer, Aaron Latchman and his teenage daughter, Arianna Latchman, continue, members of the Major Crimes Unit have arrested four persons, who have since confessed their involvement in the murders but not before implicating a friend of the now dead man.Based on information received, one of the gunmen was arrested at Front Road, La Penitence, Georgetown, after Police swooped down on a house there.

During a search of the vehicle, an illegal firearm and several rounds of ammunition were found.The firearm has been sent for ballistic testing to ascertain whether it was the same firearm that was used to kill the America Street, Georgetown, moneychanger and his daughter.ConfessionHowever, after intense interrogation, the four men have confessed to the heinous crime while implicating an East Coast Demerara businessman.They claimed that they were paid a handsome amount of money to kill the businessman and make it look like a robbery.As such, the police have since launched a manhunt for the man, who might have had an issue with the now dead businessman over a money deal that went wrong.All the men who were arrested are well known to the police since they were all previously charged for armed robbery.It was reported that on June 4, the now dead businessman had dropped off his younger daughter to her lessons and upon his return at home, he was confronted by the two gunmen.He was held at gunpoint and escorted to the upper flat of his home with his 18-year-old daughter.Reports are that the teen was attacked and shot to her chest when the bandits entered the house through the back door and began demanding cash.They then escorted Latchman into the yard where they shot him multiple times before escaping with a bag of cash.However, a source said that the elder Latchman fought with the bandits and managed to disarm one of them before he was shot.The bandits quickly made good their escape in a white Toyota Carina 212 motorcar, leaving a trail of money behind.The man and his daughter were picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where they were both pronounced dead on arrival.The now dead man’s wife was not at home at the time of the incident.She, nevertheless, turned up at the house and was inconsolable as she received the news of the deaths of her husband and daughter. The men are being prepared for court.
1 Newcastle do not want Remy Cabella back at St James’ Park Newcastle flop Remy Cabella is on the verge of completing a permanent move to Marseille.The midfielder is coming towards the end of a season-long loan at the French club but Newcastle have no intention of having him back at St James’ Park.According to Le 10 Sport, negotiations are underway between the two clubs about completing a permanent transfer and a deal is set to be announced before the end of the season.Newcastle paid £8million for Cabella back in July 2014 but he failed to make an impression in the Premier League, scoring just one goal in 34 appearances.However, the 26-year-old has enjoyed a better time of it in Ligue 1 this term, finding the net six times.And now Marseille want Cabella for keeps and Newcastle are prepared to accept around half the fee they paid Montpellier for him two years ago.

Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Agriculture Charlie McConalogue has called on Ministers Michael Creed and Paschal Donoghue to engage with farming organisations over concerns about changes to stamp duty made in the Budget.The Government increased stamp duty on commercial land transactions from 2% to 6%, which has raised concerns in the farming community that many farmers will be hit by new higher tax if they sell or transfer land.“I am calling on Ministers Creed and Donohoe to take the time to meet with farming organisations and take on board their concerns. All of the issues which have been raised over the past number of days need to be considered and addressed”, said Deputy McConalogue. “The Government needs to bear in mind that farming is a low-income industry, with average incomes for 2016 of €24,000 and in the case of cattle farms an average income of €13,000.“The impact of this increase on such a low-income industry needs to be taken into account. Farmers over the age of 67 who wish to transfer land to another family member will see their stamp duty payments triple as a result of this measure unless the Government reconsiders its approach.“There is a responsibility on the Government to ensure that no farmer is unfairly penalised as a result of this new measure and it is imperative that Ministers Creed and Donohoe meet with farming groups to find an agreeable resolution”.TD highlights concern for farmers due to steep stamp duty increase was last modified: October 13th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:budget 2018charlie mc conaloguedonegalfarmingstamp duty
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest What was once a strongly held opinion in many farm circles is now an official ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. The Environmental Protection Agency has violated the personal privacy of tens of thousands of farmers and ranchers, according to a unanimous ruling issued by the Court this month.The ruling in American Farm Bureau Federation and National Pork Producers Council vs. EPA concerned the federal agency’s 2013 release to three environmental groups of a vast compilation of spreadsheets containing personal information about farmers and ranchers who raise livestock and poultry in 29 states. The case also related to similar personal information from farmers and ranchers in seven additional states that had yet to be released. The information included the names of farmers, ranchers and sometimes other family members, home addresses, GPS coordinates, telephone numbers and emails. EPA claimed that it was required to disclose the information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).“This was an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy by a federal agency in violation of law,” said Ellen Steen, AFBF General Counsel. “The court’s decision is a vindication of the right of farm families to control their own personal information. Farmers and ranchers have a strong privacy interest in their personal information, including their home address, even when they live and work on the farm.”Farm families usually live on the farm and the court took note that EPA’s disclosures in this case could facilitate unwanted contact and harassment of farmers and ranchers by the FOIA requestors and others. According to Steen, “this case assures us that individuals still have a privacy interest in their personal information. The fact that government agencies may have that information and even store it on the Internet does not eliminate the individual’s privacy interest.”According to the court, “EPA’s release of the complete set of data on a silver platter, so to speak, basically hands to the requesters a comprehensive database of their own, whatever their motives might be.”“EPA now has to ‘recall’ all of the personal information it unlawfully released, but unfortunately that information has now been in the hands of the FOIA requestors for three years, and many feel that the damage is done,” Steen said. “AFBF will continue to work to ensure that personal information about farmers and ranchers is not disclosed by EPA.”
