Three persons were late Wednesday evening killed, while three others are critical following a two-vehicle collision in the vicinity of Loo Creek, Linden/Soesdyke Highway.Dead: Dextroy GriffithDead are David Primus, 52, of Lot 6 Self Help, Amelia’s Ward, and Dextroy Griffith, 25, a mechanic at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, also of Amelia’s Ward, Linden. The identity of the third victim was not available up to press time.Griffith’s wife, 23-year-old Whitney Plowell-Griffith and Leron Mendonca, 22, of St Vincent and the Grenadines, along with Arletta Kellman, 47, of Speightland, Lower Kara Kara, were all admitted to the Linden Hospital Complex in a serious state. They sustained trauma and broken bones, among other injuriesReports are that Primus was driving motorcar HC 5326 and was heading to Linden, while the other vehicle, PRR 7151, was travelling in the opposition direction when they collided head-on. Griffith, his wife and Kellman were all occupants of the car driven by Primus.Injured: Whitney Ann GriffithWhile information remains sketchy, Guyana Times understands that the car that was heading to Georgetown might have lost control and ended up in the path of Primus. At the time of the collision, it was reportedly raining and visibility was poor.The son-in-law of Kellman recalled driving behind the two vehicles on the Soesdyke/Linden Highway, but they quickly disappeared in the darkness.As he got closer, he realised that two vehicles had collided and as he looked, he saw his injured mother-in-law. With only one vacant seat in his vehicle, he reportedly collected the injured Kellman and rushed her to the hospital. The others were picked up shortly afterwards and rushed to the hospital.However, Primus and Griffith, along with the driver of the other vehicle were pinned down and had to be pulled from the wreckage by firemen who were summoned to the scene. One eyewitness told Guyana Times that the bodies were severely damaged and it took the firemen quite some time to pull them from the wreckage. The Police are investigating the accident.

After much public pressure from various sections of society, Government will move to release a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) it hopes to sign with neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago (T&T).President David Granger told media operatives on Wednesday at the sidelines of a swearing in ceremony, that his Government has no problem in releasing the document and will seek to do so soon.President David Granger“It’s just a MoU… It is just an agreement to cooperate. It is not a secret document. In fact, it was vetted by the Department of Energy and the Foreign Affairs Ministry and I will ask that the document to be released,” he stated.The Head of State said the MoU could be signed soon. According to him, T&T Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley was expected to arrive in Guyana on Wednesday morning but did not.He said whenever another date is set for the Prime Minister of that country to come to Guyana, they will move ahead with the signing of the agreement that will see shared mutual cooperation being enhanced.It was only recently reported that a MoU on energy cooperation between Guyana and Trinidad is expected to be signed in the coming weeks.Sections of the media reported that T&T Energy Minister, Franklin Khan confirmed this. While he did not go into details of the agreement, he said that would be disclosed after the signing. Khan said Trinidad is willing to provide assistance to the Guyana Government as the country prepares for first oil.Since 2016, discussions commenced between Guyana and Trinidad on a MoU under which T&T would provide various forms of support to the oil and gas sector in Guyana.Initiated during a visit here in 2016 by a Trinidad and Tobago delegation led by then Energy Minister, Nicole Olivierre, the MoU was expected to be signed at the end of that year, but that did not happen.At the time, Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman had said the pact would see Guyana receiving support in a range of areas, including advanced technical training for local personnel in the industry.PetrotrinUnconfirmed reports suggest that T&T is seeking to get the Guyana Government to take a stake in the Petrotrin refinery, and in this way acquire a strategic asset.The proposal is to ensure that Guyana gets its share of oil from ExxonMobil closer to home, and in this way employment would be provided to people of both countries.Earlier this week, Petrotrin’s Board confirmed plans to close the company’s refinery in October in a move which will cause the loss of 1700 permanent jobs.It was following this announcement that former Prime Minister and current Opposition Leader of T&T, Kamla Persad-Bissessar, said her country should attempt to partner with Guyana to save Petrotrin.Persad-Bissessar had said she hopes good sense will prevail with Dr Rowley. She said T&T could find a way to encourage the Guyana Government to have their oil refined in the twin-island republic.But following this suggestion, members of civil society had come out encouraging Government, the Private Sector and citizens at large to guard against what is being described as a clear attempt by that Caribbean country to monopolise opportunities in Guyana’s emerging oil and gas sector.The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) subsequently came out asking Government to hold off on signing the MoU with T&T, asking that its members be consulted first, as they fear that this could possibly open the flood gates for foreign companies to take over the oil industry.President of the GCCI, Deodat Indar said Guyanese businesses are already being sidestepped and instead contracts have been awarded to foreign-based companies to benefit from the local oil sector. But the GCCI wants the local Private Sector to get its “piece of the pie.”Outspoken social activist and chartered accountant Christopher Ram has said that company’s history must first be studied. Ram said both countries belong to the same common economic area and have a vested interest in ensuring growth in the entire bloc. As such, he thinks the David Granger-led Administration can cooperatively work with not only Trinidad, but other countries, to the benefit of Guyana.However, the chartered accountant said his major concern is what led to the failure of Petrotrin. This, he opined, had to do partly with corruption and partly with inefficiencies.Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge said the idea is good in principle, but would need to be discussed further. Greenidge had also noted that the two Governments would sign the MoU soon.

LA MIRADA – So how much will it cost to swim in the city’s new, $29 million Aquatics Center. And what days and times will it be open later this year? Those are some of the questions La Mirada residents can have answered tonight when the City Council reviews the operating hours, prices and programs for the new swim complex, set to open in October just behind City Hall and the La Mirada Resource Center. The massive, 18-acre center will be one of the largest and most elaborate municipal swim complexes in Los Angeles County. Council members also will learn tonight how much the city is expected to spend to operate the center, which features three different pools, including a 50-meter competition pool and a 25-yard pool specifically for swimming lessons, and a family fun area with slides, play structures and a flow channel area. For more on this story, pick up tomorrow’s Whittier Daily News.

Franck Tabanou 1 Saint-Etienne have no plans to sell Swansea target Franck Tabanou.The Swans are on the hunt for reinforcements during the January transfer window after recouping £28m from the sale of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City.Tabanou is reportedly high on the list of Garry Monk’s transfer targets with the Swansea boss impressed by the attacking midfielder’s performances in Ligue 1.The 25-year-old’s agent, Philippe Lamboley, admitted this week that talks were taking place, saying: “The two clubs are in discussions, but I cannot confirm a bid has been made.”However, Saint-Etienne president Bernard Caiazzo has now hit back over claims a deal will be struck, arguing the club have no plans to part with the former France under-21 international.“Tabanou will not leave this winter. Even if we receive a good offer, he will stay at the club for sure,” Caiazzo told Eurosport.
DONEGAL GAA stars have paid tribute to All-Ireland winner and TV pundit Joe Brolly after the Dungiven man donated a kidney to help out a GAA clubmate.Mr Brolly, a winner with County Derry in 1993 and now a top barrister and RTE television pundit, is recovering in a London hospital after donating a kidney to a club-mate from St Brigid’s GAC in Belfast.An operation to transfer his kidney to Shane Finnegan was performed at Guys Hospital in London on Wednesday. Both men remain under medical supervision.In a statement on the club’s website, Mr Brolly said he had been “honoured to have been in the position to help Shane”.“He’s been waiting for a transplant for over six years and when I heard that the only possibility of one was through a live donor I contacted his medical team,” he said.“And of course in my considered opinion it’s all going according to plan – and thankfully the doctors concur.” Mr Finnegan said Joe’s altruism had been “overwhelming”.“There are no words to thank him or his family for his wonderful gift,” he said.“I know its early days but I’m so relieved that it’s all going well for both of us so far.”Senior Ulster GAA official and close friend, Ryan Feeney, said they were on the “road to recovery”.“I’m very, very proud of Joe,” said Mr Feeney. “He is truly a great man – this is one of the most selfless and compassionate acts of friendship ever undertaken.”Mr Brolly, 42, and 40-year-old, Mr Finnegan, coach an under-12 side at the club, where both men’s sons play.Among the GAA players from County Donegal paying tribute to Brolly is former county player and All Star Kevin Cassidy.Said the Gaoth Dobhair man: “I always had massive respect for Joe Brolly as a person and after hearing about his kidney donation it has just increased 10fold maith thú.” DONEGAL GAA STARS LEAD TRIBUTES TO JOE BROLLY AFTER DERRY MAN DONATES KIDNEY TO CLUBMATE was last modified: October 6th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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 GAA STARS LEAD TRIBUTES TO JOE BROLLY AFTER DERRY MAN DONATES KIDNEY TO CLUBMATE
SAN BERNARDINO – Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball coach Jeff Oliver acknowledges he didn’t know if he would see Curtis Williams again after he took back his scholarship following the 2003-2004 season because of his academic shortcomings. It was a chance he was willing to take. “I gained, like, 30 pounds,” he said with a chuckle. “When I say I was away from the game, I was away from the game.” A 6-foot-4 senior guard, Williams said he never thought about not coming back because basketball meant to much to him. So did the school and the tough-love coaching staff. He arranged for his own financial but said it also took help from his mother and his then-girlfriend with whom he was living. The academic struggles were not surprising. Oliver said Williams has the talent to play at the Division I level but had to settle for playing in junior college when he came out of Warren High School in Downey in 2000. He opted to attend Cerritos because it was close to home and traditionally fielded quality teams. There he played with James Perkins, who took a recruiting trip with Williams to Cal State and eventually decided to follow him there. “He has always been able to shoot a little,” said a sarcastic Perkins, glancing over at his teammate just a few yards away. “He does everything pretty well, though. I’m glad he’s on our side.” Williams said he likes pressure situations. He nailed a NBA-range three-pointer from the top of the key in the closing seconds against Findlay (Ohio) at Grand Canyon to send that game into overtime – although the Coyotes eventually lost. He drained eight three-pointers, seven of those coming in the first half, on his way to a career-high 32 a week ago in a loss at Monterey Bay. Williams has a better shooting percentage from long distance than inside. He is shooting 44.0 percent (55-for-125) overall but is at 44.8 percent (39-for-87) from three-point range. “I like it out there. The further out, the better,” he said. Oliver said that although Williams does have great touch, he gets a lot of clean looks because of his movement. “He works to get the shots because he moves without the ball and gets himself open,” the coach said. “That’s something I wish I (could) get some of our other guys to understand.” Not only does Oliver appreciate his player’s work ethic, he likes his passion, too. He said it is Williams that is the most down after a tough loss. And there have been many of those this season. But nothing Williams does on the court will make Oliver happier than when he graduates, most likely in June of 2007. “Nothing could make me prouder than watching him walk across that stage and get his diploma,” he said. “We’re here as coaches, but our other job is to see that kids come out of here better people. He worked hard to get where he is now.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Williams matured in the year he spent focusing on school instead of sports and returned to the program this season a more responsible person. The layoff didn’t affect his game, either. He is averaging a team-high 13.4 points and has emerged as one of the most feared three-point shooters in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. He and the Coyotes (5-7 overall, 4-2 league) will face Cal Poly Pomona (8-5, 4-2) in a crucial showdown at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Coussoulis Arena. “I learned a lot in that year,” Williams said. “It was good for me to have that time to get back on track as far as school goes. I just realized how much I needed to get that degree.” Oliver said that in his year away, Williams didn’t get the benefit of any services offered to athletes. No special academic counselors. No one to schedule classes for him. No one to help him arrange supplementary aid. He was completely on his own. Williams went to most of the home games and contemplated whether he would fit in or if he could have helped when the team was struggling. But participation was limited to some shooting around with a teammate once every couple of weeks. “He needed to get well academically, and he wasn’t going to do it on the school’s dime,” Oliver said. “At some point you, have to stop spoonfeeding these kids so they take responsibility for their own actions. When they leave here, they’re adults in the real world, and we do them a disservice if we’re not preparing them for that.” The move paid off for Williams, Oliver and the Coyotes.
