first_imgAmid stringent ‘security measures,’ the much awaited 2016 national examinations of the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) is in its third day sitting today, with students gearing up to take chemistry and history.But this year’s exam had been embroiled in a series of uncertainties; couple with the reported stealing of the testing materials.Dele G. Gboto, WAEC Head of Test Administration, has meanwhile advised all registered 12th graders to prepare themselves and go to the selected testing centers with only their pens and pencils, adding that students should carry, “nothing else, especially electronic devices as doing so will disqualify any candidate caught.”Despite the earlier fiasco caused by the theft of exam papers from a storage in Konola Academy, Kakata the WAEC examinations began last Monday throughout the country with 46,000 students sitting for one subject: mathematics.On the second day, yesterday, students tackled geography and biology exam questions. Reports across the country and from various campuses indicate that there has been so far a smooth administration of the examinations as students eagerly focused on the test subjects.At the Boatswain Junior High School campus, students who are taking the exams are doing as well as they can, according to a sample of students interviewed yesterday.“We are doing our best and I think we are sure that we are doing the right thing to get the results that we need,” said a female student from the Assembly of God of Caldwell, who is writing her exams at the Boatswain Junior High School campus.Reports from Grand Cape Mount, Nimba and Margibi County were also positive with students engaged in their exams with a sense of dedication.“Students are cautiously and religiously working on their exam papers,” according to reports from Nimba County.Information gathered from the various venues indicates that students who are writing their exams have decided to do all they can to get the job done so that they can look at the future and see what they need to do to further their lives.“They are not even discussing the recent postponement of the examinations caused by leaked test papers,” according to our Nimba correspondent, Ishmael Menkor.The exams will continue on Thursday with students writing physics and economics and many reports indicate that students are in a marathon rush to get the exams successfully behind them.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgTuschen robberyThe three suspects, who were arrested following a brazen armed attack on a Tuschen Housing Scheme Chinese restaurateur on Friday, have been further detained by investigators, even as Police are searching for a female who was part of the robbery.The gun that was found in the getaway carOn Wednesday, investigators applied to the High Court for an extension of time to detain the suspects. This was granted and the Police have another 72 hours to hold the men before instituting charges.It was further revealed that a file was prepared and sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecution for advice into the matter. This advice will assist investigators in how to proceed with the matter and what charges should be implemented.This newspaper was told that the three suspects who were caught trying to make their good escape have confessed that they knew of the robbery but it was Mark Prince – who was fatally shot during the robbery – was the mastermind. One of the suspects was also wounded during the robbery. The suspects in custody are a Police Constable attached to the Special Branch at Eve Leary, Georgetown; a 20-year-old Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD) resident and a Buxton, East Coast Demerara (ECD) residentDead bandit: Mark PrinceOn Friday last, Prince was among the bandits who pounced on Guang Hong Wang, 43, proprietor of the Five Star Chinese Restaurant and her husband who operate the food establishment in the lower flat of their premises. A customer, Navindra Lakahalall, 37, of Zeelugt New Housing, Scheme, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), was also robbed when the bandits invaded the premises. Reports are Lakahalall was in the restaurant when one of the male suspects and a female entered and purchased two beverages. Police reports stated that as soon as they consumed the beverages, they ordered a case of beer and in the process of Wang delivering the same, the male suspect whipped out a handgun and relieved her of two cell phones and an undisclosed sum of cash.He then turned his attention to Lakahalall and relieved him of one silver chain and an undisclosed sum of cash. At the height of the robbery, the three other suspects entered.However, a neighbour, who is a licensed firearm holder, heard the commotion and immediately went to investigate and was attacked by the armed suspect and another with a cutlass. He then discharged several rounds in their direction after which the suspects fled the premises in a motor car with licence plate PTT 8606 that had been parked nearby, leaving their accomplice Prince, who had been shot, at the scene.The Police were contacted and the vehicle was intercepted at a roadblock on the public road in front of the Den Amstel Police Station.At the time, the car had three occupants – one was in the back seat with what appeared to be a gunshot wound. He was questioned, arrested, and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital.An unlicensed pistol with an empty magazine was found in the vehicle along with an undisclosed sum of cash and cellular phones.It was later revealed that Prince, who had been left behind with a gunshot wound to the neck, died on the spot. A cutlass was in his right hand and a haversack was on his back.His body was taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Some $130,000 was found in his possession.last_img read more

first_img…cocaine found in sealed rice bags in container destined for BelgiumThe interception of an outgoing shipment over the weekend has led local authorities to the discovery of some 147 pounds (66.8 kilos) of cocaine, randomly hidden in sealed 45-kilogram bags of rice destined for export to Belgium.The parcels containing cocaine that were unearthed in the rice consignmentGuyana Times understands that city businessman Andre Poonai, of Golden Grains Investments Limited, has since been arrested and taken into custody to assist with the investigation.According to reports, the raid commenced at the John Fernandes Wharf, Water Street, Georgetown since Friday, October 27, 2017. However, the narcotics were uncovered just before lunch the following day. The containers were scheduled to leave Guyana Friday eveningDuring the exercise, the officers unloaded and searched the five rice-filled 20-foot containers, and discovered taped parcels containing a white powdery substance in some of the rice bags.One of the rice bags in which some cocaine parcels were concealedThe suspected cocaine was weighed. The bust was a collaborative effort between agents of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) and the Guyana Revenue Authority’s Container Control Programme (CCP).According to CANU, the broker responsible for the rice consignment remains in custody. The businessman reportedly gave a Barr Street, Kitty, Georgetown address on the shipping documents, but it turns out that no operations were being carried out there.Back in August, Narcotics Police in Jamaica found cocaine with a street value of over J$100 million in a shipment of rice that travelled from Guyana through the Dominican Republic.It was reported that the Police, accompanied by members of the Customs Contraband Enforcement Team, conducted a snap operation at the Kingston Container Terminal and immediately trained their focus on cargo from specific containers. During the examination of a 40-foot container, a total of five leather bags were revealed to be hidden among the shipment.The bags had a total of 78 parcels, each containing the white powdery substance.last_img read more

first_imgSimi Valley police Lt. Greg Riegert said his department has been focusing attention of graffiti vandalism as soon as it arises. “After the last arrests in December we had no graffiti for several weeks,” he said. “The new cases developed in the last few weeks. … It goes in spurts.” “When you suddenly get hit with a whole bunch of damage, it attracts attention,” he said. “The public is on the lookout for it. Our biggest help is from the schools.” As to why teenagers would get involved in this type of activity, Riegert said it had something to do with boredom and thrill-seeking. “They know they can get caught, and that’s where the thrill comes from,” he said. eric.leach@dailynews.com (805) 583-7602 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SIMI VALLEY – On the lookout for graffiti after a dramatic increase in tagging last year, police have arrested four teenagers suspected of causing $13,000 in damage to local schools, officials said. The four boys were arrested last week in connection with graffiti found at Royal and Moorpark high schools and Hollow Hills Elementary School. They were apprehended after one was seen with his characteristic tag on some personal property he had at school. “They are not gang members. They are taggers,” said Sgt. Darin Muehler, supervisor of the Simi Valley Police Department’s Special Problems Section. “These kids put this out there so they’re known. That’s why they go out on what they call `bombing runs,’ putting up their graffiti where it can be seen by others.” Muehler said one of the taggers told police he did it for the notoriety. “They hit the schools because that’s where they can get the most recognition the quickest,” he said. In December, six other teenagers were arrested in connection with a tagging spree that caused $60,000 in damage. Muehler said those six are not connected with the recent spate of vandalism. Simi Valley officials have been tracking graffiti vandalism since 1990; results are posted on the city’s Web site, www.simivalley.org. They report that graffiti cases peaked in 1993, with 4,038 incidents, and dropped to a low of 526 in 2002. Since then, however, graffiti cases have risen to 2,388 in 2006, dramatically above the 856 cases in 2005. The situation shocked city officials and led to the hiring last summer of a graffiti-abatement officer at a cost of $95,000 annually. last_img

first_imgTir Chonaill AC Club NotesSuccess for club athletes on many frontsLast weekend was a roller coaster of successes for club members on the competitive front. On the track a number travelled to Antrim for the final section of the Ulster/ANI Track and Field c/ships while on the road numerous fine performances were recorded at the Lifford 5k [Friday evening] and Enniskillen 10k. The Mullaghmore Sprint Triathlon had ideal conditions and again a large number of club athletes, many completing their first triathlon, recorded excellent times. Finally on Saturday evening Karl Griffin, who continues his build up towards the World Junior C/ships in Oregon, in July recorded another sub 1min 50secs /800m time at an Irish Milers Club meet in Dublin.

The following, many completing their first triathlon, all were deservedly very proud as they crossed the finish line having completed the final 5k run.

first_imgFOOTBALL FRIDAY HE SAID “Right now, I’m not as far along as I want to be. There’s a whole lot more I need to accomplish.” – Valencia receiver Virgil Hill who has caught 10 passes with two TDs the past three weeks after sitting on the bench most of the season opener. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 DID YOU KNOW? Loyola of Los Angeles, which plays Hart tonight, is one of two teams to defeat Hart three times during coach Mike Herrington’s 17-year career (St. Bonaventure is the other.) Hart leads the series 5-3 and has beaten Loyola the past two meetings, pulling out a last-minute 17-16 victory last season. SPOTLIGHT Marcus Hood, a promising Burbank junior who played on the JV team last year because of transfer restrictions, is breaking out. He rushed for 190 yards (125 in the first quarter) and three touchdowns in a 48-7 rout of Hoover of Burbank last week, improving his four-game totals to 421 yards (7.7 avg.) and seven touchdowns. He also is averaging 47.0 yards as a kick returner and 17.0 on punt returns. OFFBEAT Something not seen very often: Ronnie Holt, a Saugus defensive lineman, last week caught Notre Dame’s blazing fast running back Rodney Glass from behind on a 60-yard run, bringing him down at the 4-yard line and saving a touchdown in the Centurions 21-7 loss. Glass, who runs a sub-4.4 40-yard dash, is the area’s fastest player. He finished second in the state 100-meter finals last spring. “How rare is it for defensive lineman to catch someone like Rodney Glass? You tell me,” Saugus coach Jason Bornn said. “Ronnie Holt just really hustled on that play.” OFF THE CHART Valencia’s Michael Herrick has passed for 8,492 career yards, pulling within 1,479 of Keith Smith’s state record of 9,971, set in 1991-93 at Newbury Park. Herrick’s production this season and in his prep career: 2005 OppAttCompYdsTD B.Amat35203711 Birm.29182601 El Toro16123143 S.J.Bosco28193151 Total108691,2606 Career 20034432893,1672120044342884,065322005108691,2606 Total9856468,49259 NUMBERS GAME 10 Fumble recoveries by Burbank – an average of 2.5 per game. James Antaplylan and Anthony Yelding have two, and six others have one. THIS WEEK’S GAMES SAUGUS (2-2) at ST. FRANCIS of La Canada, (4-0) 7:30 p.m. Player to watch: Kevin Mack, St. Francis. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder is the latest in a long line of tough, physical St. Francis linebackers. He leads the Knights with 29 tackles. Outlook: Saugus always seems to play its best against St. Francis – the underdog Centurions hold a 3-1 series edge the past four years. Saugus overcame a 15-point halftime deficit and twice scored touchdowns on fumble recoveries in the end zone in last year’s 35-34 overtime victory. Saugus has lost two in a row, but the second was a 21-7 loss to three-time Southern Section Div. III champion Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks in a game that was much closer than expected. Zach Summers has passed for 493 yards (60.4 pct.) and four TDs, and he has scored four TDs. Ryan Purdy has rushed for 267 yards and five TDs. Ramsen Golpashin leads the offensive line. St. Francis, coached by former Hart quarterback Jim Bonds, has allowed just 187 total yards per game, and no opponent has scored more than 12 points. WR/DB Scott Stephens has caught 15 passes for 343 yards (22.9 avg.), intercepted seven passes and scored five TDs – three on returns. VALENCIA (4-0) at NOTRE DAME of Sherman Oaks (4-0), 7:30 p.m. Player to watch: Taylor Sellnow, Valencia. The Vikings receiver, recovered from a sprained ankle, will be crucial with top receiver Jason Engleberg out with an ankle injury. Sellnow also is the long snapper. Outlook: Valencia has been superb the past three years – but not against Notre Dame. During that span, the Vikings are 0-2 against the Knights and 26-8 against everyone else. A 33-3 loss last season was especially disheartening because the game was televised and Valencia had outscored its first four opponents by an average of 31 points. Only four times in Valencia QB Michael Herrick‘s stellar, two-plus season prep career has he failed to surpass 200 yards in a game. Twice it was against Notre Dame. Defending Div. II finalist Valencia is averaging 41 points and 511 yards, and Herrick has completed 64 percent of his throws for 1,260 yards and six TDs despite missing much of the second half in two of four games. Valencia’s other big player is RB Shane Vereen. He’s rushed for 519 yards (10.4 avg.) and scored 10 TDs, and he’s also a top CB. Notre Dame QB Garrett Green, a top prospect whom USC is recruiting, has concentrated on defense the past few games because of a thumb injury. RB Rodney Glass (608 yards, 9.4 avg., 11 TDs) is a blazer. HART (3-1) vs. LOYOLA of Los Angeles (4-0) at College of the Canyons, 7 p.m. Player to watch: Alex Pettee, Hart. The Indians’ starting quarterback in Tyler Lyon‘s absence, Pettee has completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 302 yards with three TDs and no INTs. Pettee started two weeks ago, when Lyon was out with a shoulder injury, and he got the call again after Lyon suffered a concussion on the second play of last week’s win over Birmingham of Lake Balboa. Outlook: Always an anticipated nonleague showdown, this televised encounter (FSN West 2) matches two of the Southern Section’s strongest teams. Hart, which has lost only to state power St. Bonaventure of Ventura in Week 2, hasn’t generated as much scoring as Indians teams customarily do, but it has played tough defense, allowing 233 yards per game. Div. I power Loyola, led by QB Henry Burge (662 yards, 60 pct., 5 TDs), is winning by an average of more than 21 points. Loyola rallied from a 16-point deficit in a 44-29 victory last week at Antelope Valley of Lancaster. Among Loyola’s top defenders are LB Brent Baltimore (35 tackles) and DL Nicholas Bertole (31 tackles). Bertole had 16 tackles at Antelope Valley.CRESPIof Encino (2-2) at CANYON (3-1), 7 p.m. Player to watch: Garrett Leary, Canyon. The defensive lineman must watch for Crespi RB Josh Morgan, who has rushed for 604 yards (8.3 avg.) and scored six TDs. Outlook: This matchup should bring back memories for Canyon coach Harry Welch, who played at Crespi more than 40 years ago and began his coaching career at the Catholic school. Expect lots of scoring in a showdown featuring two high-powered offenses. Canyon loves feeding the ball to J.J. DiLuigi, who has rushed for a Foothill League-best 559 yards, caught four passes for 124 yards and scored 14 TDs – many on long breakaways, such as a 99-yard kickoff return two weeks ago. QB Austin Civita has passed for 686 yards (52 pct.) and five TDs. Crespi also is balanced. Morgan is a threat, and Matt Wabby has passed for 702 yards (52 pct.) and seven TDs. In key situations, he looks for D.J. Holt (14 receptions, 19.8 avg., four TDs). Standout OL/DL Sione Fua (ankle) is questionable. SANTA CLARITA CHRISTIAN (2-1) vs. AVALON (2-2) at First Lutheran HS, Saturday, 1 p.m. Outlook: Don’t blink, or you might miss a TD. Eight-man competitor Santa Clarita Christian averages 51.6 points, and Avalon, from Santa Catalina Island, has allowed more than 50 points the past two weeks.

The list is expected to be reviewed by the City Council in November. The historical council will promote the preservation and awareness of La Mirada’s history, Robinson said. Formation of the new historical council comes as plans are being made to open and restore the George home on the historic Neff site, Councilwoman Susan Tripp said. For years, the house was occupied by a caretaker, so no public tours could be conducted, Tripp said. “This is a good time to rethink our programs,’ she said.

The commission was disbanded because of lack of interest nearly a year ago. Even so, city officials believe they can recruit enough residents to fill out and serve on the new advisory council. “We’ll have a broader base and maybe some fresher input,’ said Councilman Steve Jones, who believes the city will have no problem recruiting members for the advisory council. “The Historical Heritage Commission didn’t change for quite a while. Maybe this will give it a jump start.’ The new historical council will have nine members, one of whom will also serve on the Community Services Commission. last_img read more
