Release so-called ‘PPP/C-BK agreement’ – Nandlall challenges Williams

first_imgHaags Bosch settlementAs the controversy over who exactly initiated a multimillion US dollar settlement with BK International over the Haags Bosch landfill site continues to rage, former Attorney General (AG) Anil Nandlall on Wednesday rubbished claims by his successor, Basil Williams, that the former People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Government had agreed to compensate the contractor, who threatened legal action after his contract was terminated for shoddy work.Attorney General Basil WilliamsFormer AG Anil NandlallEarlier this year, the current Administration agreed to pay BK International US$5.7 million as an out-of-court settlement for the terminated contract and works completed “satisfactorily”. At that time, Williams had argued that the settlement was necessary, since the Government was fearful of losing a US$10 million lawsuit filed by the contractor.However, Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan subsequently rubbished the AG’s claims and stated that there was no legal action taken and the payout was done on the basis of a mere letter from BK International threatening to sue the Government for US$10 million.Williams has since sought to cast blame on the former Government, which he said, had already agreed to pay BK.But, in a statement on Wednesday, Nandlall challenged Williams to make public the agreement he claimed the PPP/C Government had signed with BK, stating that it was impossible since no such agreement existed.He described the AG’s claim as “an utterly new and incredulous explanation which the nation is now being fed”.“It will be noted that he did not provide a copy of this alleged agreement of the previous Administration to pay BK International. He cannot do so. There is none; unless of course, one is now being concocted. If such an agreement existed, I have no doubt, it would have been produced, publicly, months ago,” Nandlall said.The former AG said he hoped the submission of invoices for payment by the contractor was not interpreted as an agreement by the Government to pay.He added that even though the matter has been in the public domain since earlier this year, such an explanation was never proffered by the Government.In fact, Nandlall recalled that the AG spoke at length on the BK settlement in the Committee of Supply during the consideration of a supplementary budget on August 8, 2016, but this excuse was not provided.“The truth of the matter is if there was an agreement to pay, the payment would have been made and the contract would not have been terminated by the PPP/C Administration. The sole reason for contention was precisely because of the Government’s refusal to pay,” Nandlall explained.He declared that “no amount of interrogating the contract” by the Attorney General would change these facts.Efforts to contact the Attorney General proved futile, as calls to his mobile phone went unanswered.last_img read more

Questions for Baca

first_imgJUST what is Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca up to these days? To hear some members of the county Board of Supervisors tell it, serious financial mischief. Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky says that in an effort to stave off federal intervention, Baca created 285 phantom positions in the department, then “filled” them by spending massive sums on overtime. The supervisors take issue with such antics, seeing that it’s their job, not Baca’s, to make the budget. And they want to know what, exactly, Baca has done with the extra $250 million they’ve given him over the past three years to address jail problems. It’s a valid question, especially since Baca has repeatedly claimed that he needs a tax hike to hire more deputies. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BROTHER OF MAN LEFT BRAIN-DAMAGED IN LETTERKENNY ATTACK SLAMS HEALTH AUTHORITIES

first_imgThe brother of a man left brain-damaged after he was attacked in Co Donegal five years ago has criticised the health authorities.Mark McShane, 40, was left unable to recognise his own children after the attack in Letterkenny, for which two men were jailed for five years.The Derry man later had part of his brain removed. His brother John said he now lived on his own and struggled to survive everyday.“He still is pretty much brain-damaged and possibly is going to be for the rest of his life,” John told BBC Radio Foyle.“Mark finds it pretty difficult to survive on his own.“All the care that Mark gets is provided by his family, because as far as all those outside agencies are concerned, they seem to have walked away from him.“Mark refused to go to a clinic on one or two occasions and it seems to be that no one ever contacted Mark to see if he wanted to come back.“It’s a lot of strain on my mother; it’s a lot of strain on all of us because every day somebody has to do something for Mark, take him somewhere, cook for him, clean for him. He exists, that’s it, but as far as his mental state is concerned, he would be pretty much childish.”He said he would like to see the brain injury clinic do more to help Mark, and he said the Housing Executive could do more to improve his accommodation.The Western Health and Social Care Trust said it could not comment on an individual case but that Mark’s family could raise concerns about his treatment directly with staff or through its complaints system: the Patients’ Advocate Office.The statement added: “The Acquired Brain Injury Service is working within the agreed regional standards and quality indicators on acquired brain injuries. These acknowledge brain injury is a lifelong condition but state that ‘the active participation and engagement of people with a brain injury is central to any rehabilitation process’.”The Housing Executive said it had received a report about a cylinder leaking at Mark’s address and its contractor called at the property twice, but could not gain access. A spokesperson said a maintenance officer would call at the property on August 8 to carry out an inspection and any items found to be defective or in need of repair would be addressed.Two Donegal men are serving five-year sentences for their part in the attack.BROTHER OF MAN LEFT BRAIN-DAMAGED IN LETTERKENNY ATTACK SLAMS HEALTH AUTHORITIES was last modified: August 8th, 2012 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:brain damagedletterkenny attackMark McShanelast_img read more

Michaels joins in retail boom

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PALMDALE — The bustling 10th Street West retail corridor is due to get a Michaels craft store and several new restaurants, city officials and developers say. The Michaels craft store will go into a renovated former Kmart store, and restaurants are planned in that center and elsewhere along 10th Street West between the Antelope Valley Mall and Technology Drive. “There’s an awful lot of demand here,” Mayor Jim Ledford said. “When you get a median income and cost of living like we have here, it spells disposable income.” The former Kmart shopping center at the northeast corner of 10th Street West and Rancho Vista Boulevard is getting a continued makeover that started with the opening of Wickes furniture store. Until the Wickes store opened in November, the building had stood vacant for three years. The building is part of a retail complex called Sierra Commons that is being developed by Grae Palmdale Rancho Vista LLC, the same firm that developed the Amargosa Commons shopping center a quarter-mile south. Sierra Commons will also be getting a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, a Pick Up Stix Asian food restaurant, Jared’s Jewelers, and a Pacific Dental office. Michaels and the other businesses will be open late this year. With the new additions, there is now roughly 20,000 square feet of space left to be leased, said Dan Otter, one of the project’s developers. A family-style buffet and grill restaurant called Golden Corral is planned on 2.5 acres south of Technology Drive east of 10th Street West. Construction is tentatively set to begin later this summer or early fall on the 11,000-square-foot building. Construction will take about five months. The restaurant is expected to employ 130 to 150 workers. A number of other restaurant chains continue to express interest in Palmdale in general and the Antelope Valley Mall area in particular. One possible addition to the mall is a BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. A spokesman for the company said the Palmdale location is one it is interested in, but no lease agreement has been finalized. Likewise, Soup Plantation also is interested in Palmdale and has looked at sites, but no agreements have been signed. City officials said the On The Border Mexican restaurant chain is also interested in possibly locating a restaurant at the mall. Just to the east of Sierra Commons, on the south side of Rancho Vista Boulevard, a building that will house a Sherman Williams paint store and a Cycle Gear motorcycle accessory store is going up. About another 6,000 square feet remains to be leased, Otter said. — Jim Skeen, (661) 267-5743 james.skeen@dailynews.comlast_img read more

COUNTY CHAMPIONS ST EUNAN’S DEDICATE WIN TO TRAGIC ELAINE

first_imgSt Eunans are the county champions!Manager Eamon Boyle revealed how they had used the tragic death of supporter Elaine Winston who died yesterday to spur them on before the game.“It was a sad day for the club and we spoke about it before the game and I am delighted that we have driven on and won this game for the Winston family and the supporters,” he said. The Letterkenny team staved off a brave challenge from Naomh Conaill with just a point between the sides in the end on a scoreline of 1-7 to 0-9.Mark McGowan scored the vital last point for St Eunan’s with a long range but perfectly accurate kick.Glenties players Darragh Gallagher, who had enjoyed a fine game, had the chance to level the scores near the final whistle but put his shot side.The teams swapped points throughout with St Eunan’s giving away a lot of needless frees to allow Glenties to keep in touch. The Cathedral Town team’s cause wasn’t helped when sub David McGinley was sent off for what looked like an off the ball incident.Naomh Conaill looked like they were on control with a two point advantage until goal hero Lee McGonagle popped up to score a fine goal to give them a single point advantage.Glenties equalised but then came the superb long-range kick from McGowan to put Eunan’s ahead as the clock ticked down at McCumhaill Park.The 45 came from a mis-hit back-pass from Brendan McDyre, who’d had a great game up until then, the ball rolling over the line.“I don’t know how that happened, he must have thought that there was someone standing there because the goalkeeper was nowhere in sight,” said joint manager Martin Doherty. “Poor Brendan. But he was superb all day, they all were. We are just gutted.”St. Eunan’s: JP Clarke; Eddie Brennan, Micheal Martin, Conor Parke; Peter Devine, Eamonn Doherty, Mark McGowan (0-2,1’45’; John Haran, Rory Kavanagh (0-1); Lee McMonagle (1-1), Conall Dunne (0-1), Kevin Rafferty; Conor Gibbons (0-1,f), Ross Wherity, Sean McVeigh (0-1).

Indoor Track And Field To Open 2015-16 This Weekend

first_imgThe Drake University indoor track and field teams get the 2015-16 season underway this weekend at the SDSU Holiday Open in Brookings, S.D. The two-day meet, hosted by South Dakota State University, will be contest on the Jackrabbits’ Sanford-Jackrabbit Athletic Complex’s 300-meter track. “I’ll be anxious to see how we’ll perform,” said Drake head coach Natasha Kaiser-Brown. “I expect the verterans to do a great job because they’ve done this before and we’ll see how the newcomers respond.”Those veterans include athletes that earned a total of eight all-conference honors during the 2014-15 season and are primed to add to their accomplishments this season.The men’s team returns all-conference performers in sprinter Pierce Vincent (Fayetteville, Ga.), hurdlers Kai Asberry (Carrollton, Texas) and Hudson Priebe (Chamberlain, S.D.). In the distance events, Rob McCann (Mississauga, Ontario) returns after earning all-MVC honors in the mile while Reed Fisher (Minnetonka, Minn.) is coming off an all-MVC cross country season. McCann is expected to run the mile again indoors with Fischer focusing on the 5,000 meters. Former MVC outdoor champion Ryan Cook (Colorado Springs, Colo.) returns in the high jump as well.”We’re such a unique team in that we’re not a just a sprint or distance or field team,” Kaiser-Brown said. “We have a little bit of everything that makes us more well rounded heading into the indoor season. We have a great hurdlers, great sprinters, great distance runners, great field athletes and it’s a well rounded team. The athletes we have are very well driven.”For the women’s team, indoor and outdoor triple jump school record holder Kayla Bell (Bolingbrook, Ill.) returns following her record-breaking season in the jumps. On the track, two-time all-MVC honoree Mary Young (Urbandale, Iowa) enters her sophomore season after recording a school record in the 100-meter hurdles during the outdoor season. In the distance events Emma Huston (Des Moines, Iowa) enters the track season after earning all-MVC honors during the cross country season while Taylor Scholl (Prior Lake, Minn.) aims for another strong season in the mile.Many of those standouts and the team’s younger talent will have their first opportunity to get their competitive juices flowing at this weekend’s meet. “It’s exciting and it gets your adrenaline flowing, but that can be detrimental,” Kaiser-Brown said of the start of the season. “This is good practice to learn how to manage your emotions and nerves. For a lot of atheltes once they get that first meet out of the way, everything falls into place.”For Kaiser-Brown and staff, the opening meet also serves as an indicator of the team’s training to date and areas of needed focus heading into the bulk of the indoor season after winter break.”We’re looking for a checkpoint of where we are in our fall training,” Kaiser-Brown said. “We’ve been going since late August with three months of condition and technical work. We’re doing things a little different this year where we’re really dragging out our condition phase longer and wrapping that up after the break.”This weekend’s season opener start Friday afternoon with the heptathlon and pentathlon. The bulk of the competition will be staged on Saturday starting at noon with the field events and 1 p.m. on the track.Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
