Is this the new PNC tactic?

first_imgDear Editor,General Elections must be held in Guyana, I repeat, General Elections is mandated for this nation by March 31, 2019, and true to form, the PNC and their thug machinery are coming up with these what I would call, new tactics. Well, it is not a totally new exercise because the moment elections are to be held in this country, there is bound to be a sudden upsurge in crime and criminal activity of some sort from the well-known PNC machinery and ‘blame it on The PPP/C’ sort of thing.This is a known strategy of theirs. Criminal activities of a certain kind destined to create fear and instability at election time are bound to show up in Guyana, period! We have grown accustomed to these things.Anytime the PNC has to face the electorate, things of this nature surfaces; the only thing this time is that they seem to have adopted another strategy, that is, trying to put PPP or PPP/C persons in the criminal spotlight. Trying to put the blame on the PPP for the instability in society and divert people’s attention from the real issue at hand, which is an imminent election. Hence, we question claims that the niece of a Former PPP Member of Parliament is planning to bomb the University of Guyana.It is rather odd that a student of the said institution would want to blow it up. The timing and the person who is said to have made those calls are highly suspect incidents that call for the most careful scrutiny ever. And even if we are tempted to believe this, the timing of this bomb threat has given them away. Why when an election is due would you get such a threat and from a PPP person? Who would want to believe this? All of the events leading up to this story has a PNC copyrighted script written all over it.They are trying their utmost to hang on to power while emasculating the Constitution and creating panic and confusion at the same time.What is even more revealing is the fact that her full name, Sheliza Jaferally, relation to a former PPP/C Member of Parliament as well as her photograph are splashed in bold all across the Government mouthpiece, Guyana Chronicle. This is pure bullyism. It shows how desperate these people are at diversionary tactics.In the first place, persons who have committed the most dastardly of deeds, even murder, are not treated this way so this latest bomb threat by a harmless student speaks volumes of the desperation campaign the PNC are waging at this time.So the PNC in their bid to hang on to power is pressing the panic button, bringing back the fear factor in society just before another election.Respectfully,Neil Adamslast_img read more

Former Flyers head coach now at the helm with the Trackers

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Northeast BC/Yukon Trackers are less than a week from their training camp, which will be run once again by a new head coach.After former head coach David Johnston left at the end of last season, the Trackers didn’t look far to find his replacement. Former Fort St. John Senior Flyers bench boss Gerard Dicaire will be behind the Trackers’ bench this season, less than two years after stepping down as the Flyers’ coach. The two-time NHL draft pick won an Allan Cup and a Savage Cup playing with the team, along with an NPHL Championship. In 2013, Dicaire stepped behind the bench to coach the team to their first of two straight Coy Cup Championships in the Spring of 2015.After stepping down to spend more time with his family, Dicaire said that he was given the blessing to return to coaching from his kids. He said that he plans on bringing a fresh insight to the team this season, which will be the second year the team’s curriculum corresponds to the Hockey Canada Skills Academy Program. He explained that three returning players from last season won’t be attending training camp initially, as they plan to try out for the Cariboo Cougars Major Midget team. Second year returning forward Connor Bowie also won’t be at this weekend’s camp, as he’s set to attend the Portland Winterhawks’ training camp ahead of the WHL season.- Advertisement -The Trackers training camp begins this Friday at 6:00 p.m. at the Pomeroy Sport Centre, and runs until Sunday. Dicaire said that the final cuts might not be known until next week, as he and his fellow coaching staff will need to look at the various players’ strengths and weaknesses.last_img read more

Sterling defends assault rifle tattoo

first_img0Shares0000Raheem Sterling has been forced to defend an assault rifle tattoo © AFP / Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, May 29 – Manchester City and England star Raheem Sterling has been forced to defend his new tattoo of an M16 assault rifle.Sterling posted a picture of himself training with his England team-mates at St George’s Park, with a tattoo of an assault rifle on the winger’s right calf clearly visible. Lucy Cope, who founded Mothers Against Guns after her son Damian was shot dead outside a club in central London in July 2012, said the ink was “totally unacceptable”.She told the Sun: “We demand he has the tattoo lasered off or covered up with a different tattoo.“If he refuses he should be dropped from the England team.“He’s supposed to be a role model but chooses to glamorise guns.”But Sterling, who helped City win the Premier League title in April and is currently preparing for next month’s World Cup, alluded to the tattoo having a “deeper meaning”.In a post on Instagram, the 23-year-old said: “When I was 2 my father died from being gunned down to death I made a promise to myself I would never touch a gun in my life time, I shoot with my right foot so it has a deeper meaning N still unfinished.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

LETTERKENNY GENERAL TO ‘LOSE 24-HOUR A&E IN CUTBACKS’

first_imgLETTERKENNY General Hospital will lose 24-hour accident and emergency cover if Health Minister James Reilly implements his proposal to reduce the overspend at the hospital, donegaldaily.com can reveal.More than 90% of admissions to Letterkenny General come through the emergency department.And if the hospital makes the cuts wanted by the HSE, it would lead to the loss of 24-hour cover. That would mean patients facing journeys of up to two hours to Sligo General – where there aren’t enough staff to cope.And emergency cases taken to Altnagelvin in Derry would end up costing the HSE more money.We understand that there is already a €6M overspend at Letterkenny hospital this year – and that the HSE wants to recoup those losses in the second half of this year.However stopping all surgery wouldn’t be enough to save that money. And the only option left would be to reduce the number of hours that A&E operates. That move would also lead to reduced hours for staff and job losses. Letterkenny General is in the headlines again today because of cutbacks, cuts implemented by the HSE while other hospitals get more cash for each patient.There are a shocking ELEVEN unfilled vacancies for Non-Consultant Hospital Doctors – a situation described as ‘crazy’ by one nurse today.“If these cuts go ahead, then A&E is the only way to go – we could end up operating a reduced service. That would be a disaster,” she said.LETTERKENNY GENERAL TO ‘LOSE 24-HOUR A&E IN CUTBACKS’ was last modified: July 29th, 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) Tags:cutsHSEletterkenny hospitallieslast_img read more

WALSHY ON WEDNESDAY – THE DONEGAL DAILY SPORTS COLUMN

first_imgPaddy WalshPaddy Walsh – sports fan and sports writer is back after a brilliant first column for Donegal Daily last week. The well-known Letterkenny terrace-talker once again puts his unique slant on all things sport in Donegal and further afield. SAM ENCHANTED EVENING Sitting in Hill 16. Not ON it. IN it. The watering hole in Dublin’s Gardiner Street. And this fellow planks himself beside me. Looks familiar but I’ve had a couple and I can’t quite place him even with those bigger than normal ears he has.Murphy talks to a couple of Dublin lads called Maguire!“Evening”, says I. “Evening,” he returns.We get chatting. Asks me where I hail from and when I answer he says: “Ah, been there a couple of times.”“Oh yeah, which part?”. “Every bloody part. Every single nook and cranny of the place. You name it, I’ve been there, mate…”Last visit, he tells me, 2012. “Mad it was. And then even more madder. You’d think they’d never seen me before the way they went on.”But they had seen him before, he tells me. Back in1992. “Mad then too. First time I’d ever been there and I thought I’d never be back again. You’re all fecking crazy, stark raving the whole lot of ye.”Tells me he’s been living in Dublin this past year but fancies a change of scenery.“I’m thinking. Kerry or Donegal. Been in Kerry a fair few times. Thirty-six if I can remember rightly. Nice place. Some quare views…”“Ah, nothing compared to what we have in Donegal,” I reply. “We’ve views that puts Kerry in the half-penny place. Awesome’s too mild for it.” “Aye, true. But they’re not as mad as ye. I was almost damaged property the last time I was in your neck of the woods. Crazy days. And the nights weren’t half mad either…”“Ever been in Leitrim?,” I ask him.“Where?” he asks.“Or Sligo?.” “Might have passed through but never stopped there.”“Here, will you have a drink?”, I enquire.“Hardly touch the stuff. Except once a year when they fill me up with champagne.”Right, says I, climbing off the barstool. “Must go.”“Oh, you heading back to Donegal?.”“That’s right. Be seeing you….”“Aye, you just might, mate. You just might.”Still couldn’t place him but I’m sure I’ll run into him again…WHAT NEXT FOR THE MIDAS MAN?Some speculation on the future of Jim McGuinness should Donegal find themselves in the losers dressing-room come Sunday evening. Or even the winners enclosure.What next for Jim McGuinness?Will he step down? Vacate the post that he was passed over for by the County Board – truly difficult to believe that – a few short years back?A defeat might make his mind up and the likes of Mayo will be looking on from the sidelines with some interest, assuming James Horan doesn’t reverse his recent decision to quit and never minding the fact that a pack of five led by Kevin McStay are in the running to replace him. Or could Glasgow Celtic take a huge gamble and appoint the Glenties man manager in place of current boss, Ronny Deila, who, even at this early stage, doesn’t look up to the task? No sniggering back there, that age old Donegal connection with the Glasgow club could swing a managerial move that would shock both the world of soccer and Gaelic football.Win, lose or draw this Sunday (and I’d be getting odds on the latter if I was a betting man), most Donegal supporters – all of them let’s face it – will be hoping he stays on for another crack at the ultimate title.Even if Declan Bonner – what a job he’s done with the Minors – might be waiting patiently to step up to the plate.GREENE AND BLUEMany moons ago – and a few more manys along with that one – on a family outing to Downings one Sunday afternoon, I was listening eagerly to the car radio waiting for a result from a Finn Harps away trip to Shamrock Rovers.And finally the R.T.E. sports presenter of the time – a time when there was no internet or social media to catch up on these things – passed proceedings along to Milltown where the familiar voice of Philip Greene sat ready to reveal all.He didn’t quite share the masterful vocal intonations of the recently deceased B.B.C. sports announcer, James Alexander Gordon, who could disclose a result and whether your favourite side had won, lost or drawn, just by the way he stressed the name of the home team, but, nevertheless, our Philip on this occasion gave it away as soon as he opened his mouth.For it was like he had just been given the news that his home had been burgled and his prized collection of Shamrock Rovers match programmes had all been dumped in the garden and burnt to a cinder. I was already dancing a jig on Downings beach when he announced, in seriously doleful tones, that Harps had won by a goal to nil, his beloved Hoops undone by the team from the North-West. He still remained one of my favourite broadcasters of that era simply because of his tendency to drift into describing the birds flying over the pitch or the respective colours of the goalkeepers’ jerseys during a match report but also, more specifically, when he provided the good news (for those of us with blue and white blood at least) that Harps had won in his own backyard.I was reminded of that afternoon last Sunday, this time while walking the dog in Ards Forest Park and keeping an ear out for the latest from Avondale United where Harps were attempting to make it into the semi-finals of the F.A.I. Cup.This time the name of the Cork sports reporter who conveyed the news on R.T.E. that Mickey Funston had given the Donegal side the lead escaped me but his tone suggested that he too might have been the victim of a break-in such was his mournful approach to delivering the news.I didn’t hear him on again but, no doubt, there was a bit more joy when the Munster League side drew level with thirteen minutes remaining, resulting in tonight’s scheduled replay at Finn Park.As Ollie Horgan stressed, Harps have still a lot of work to do to reach that semi-final but that draw in Cork might have been for the best given that it will mean some much required gate receipts even if the two sides are up against, not just one another, but the rival attraction of Manchester City and Bayern Munich on the T.V.The die-hard Harps followers will certainly be there and hopefully the fringe fans might also come along in their hundreds as Harps bid to hit the last four.Incidentally, what with all the green and gold fluttering about the place, it was nice to see the Bank of Ireland on Letterkenny’s Main Street lend their backing to the Harps cause with a large cluster of blue and white balloons framing the front entrance this week…!UNITED IN SPORTThe Sky Sports cameras will have caught an element of true sporting unity in Letterkenny last week.Former South African rugby captain, John Smit, was being interviewed along with a couple of the Wallace brothers, on the balcony of the clubrooms at The Glebe shared by both Letterkenny Rugby Club and Letterkenny Gaels, discussing the fund-raising Rugby Legends cycle which ended in Malin and, no doubt, his eye will have been diverted to the activity on the pitches below.In one corner, the local rugby lads were being put through their paces; further up the field, an even younger set of hurlers were competing in a mini-game; and at the same time on the Gaels pitch, the footballers were parading their skills.As was pointed out more than once on the evening, you don’t get that sort of scene everywhere – rugby and the G.A.A. operating in tandem and doing so with none of the bitterness that might have greeted such a scenario away back in the distant dark days of the ban and all that entailed.Smit, who holds the most international caps for his country at 111, may not have appreciated the relevance of it but his Irish rugby colleagues will certainly have.That SKY Sports coverage will, so I’m told, be broadcast during the forthcoming November internationals and credit to all who took part in the charity cycle including a healthy batch of locals.TENNIS REFERENDUMIf I had a vote in tomorrow’s Scottish Referendum, it would certainly go to the ‘yes’ camp.Yeah, says you, important political move… independence…. going it alone…break off from the mothership.Well, no, it would just be to see how Sue Barker and the rest of them at the B.B.C. would be able to cover Andy Murray at Wimbledon without mentioning the “great British hope’ in every second sentence.FINAL THOUGHTSA warning this week from the I.S.P.C.A. on the painting of animals with the Donegal colours ahead of Sunday’s Big Final.Painting sheep doesn’t have to be ba-baric!A bit too late as I’ve already slapped a couple of dabs of green on the old goldfish.Meanwhile, if the residents of Bonagee in Letterkenny could just sound a foghorn or some other noisy instrument every so often during the game on Sunday it might, just might, prevent a certain local man from falling asleep as he did for the entire duration of the semi-final clash against the Dubs. No names mentioned, of course, but he’ll be scratching his beard wondering how this one got in.And finally, the best of luck – though luck alone won’t do it – to both the Minors and Seniors in their respective Finals against the Kingdom.Get those bonfires ready but don’t set a match to them just yet.WALSHY ON WEDNESDAY – THE DONEGAL DAILY SPORTS COLUMN was last modified: September 17th, 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:donegalPaddy WalshSportWalshy on Wednesdaylast_img read more
