Port Kaituma man remanded for narco-possession

first_imgA mason was on Tuesday remanded by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan after he was reportedly found with 393 grams of cannabis in his possession.Shabeer Mohammed, 37, of Port Kaituma, North West District (NWD) and Meadow Brook Gardens, Georgetown, denied that he had the drugs in his possession on June 21 at Four Miles, Port Kaituma.His attorney, Tiffany Jeffrey told the Court that the drug was found 50 feet away from her client in bushes while her client was travelling in a motor car.Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield objected to this and revealed that the car in which the father of one was travelling was stopped by Police, and he exited the vehicle and attempted to sneakily hide the drugs in a clump of bushes at the corner of the roadway.When a rank who noticed him made checks, two black plastic bags with the drug was found and as such, he was arrested.He reportedly told ranks at the Police Station that “the lady want weed, so I went up the road for the stash”.As such, he was remanded to prison. The case will continue on August 6, 2018 at the Matthews Ridge Magistrate’s Court.last_img read more

Last-gasp Biraghi goal gives Mancini first competitive win

first_imgIt gives Mancini his first competitive victory since taking over as Italy coach last May, after the four-time world champions failure to qualify for the World Cup.“A new cycle has already begun,” said Mancini“We dominated the game, we had to score the first goal, it would have been unfair to finish 0-0.“All the lads are trying to do their best. It’s a good win in a very good game.”Fiorentina defender Biraghi made the sign ’13’ with his hands when he scored, as he dedicated his first goal to former Italy and Fiorentina captain Davide Astori who died of a heart attack last March.“I owe everything to him. I’m here thanks to Davide who was a mentor for me,” said Biraghi, who was called up to Italy for the first time last month at the age of 26.European champions Portugal lead the three-team group with six points from two games with Italy on four points after three games with Poland relegated to League B with one point.Mancini stuck with the same eleven he started with in last Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against the Ukraine with Federico Bernardeschi, Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Chiesa leading the attack.Nicolo Barella, 21, was chosen to start over Lorenzo Pellegrini in midfield after making his international debut in Genoa.Poland opted for the strike partnership of Robert Lewandowski and Arkadiusz Milik over Genoa forward Krzysztof Piatek, who has scored 14 goals in ten competitive games for club and country.Italy had the best of the first half but once again demonstrated their difficulty finishing off.Jorginho rattled the bar within the first minute, with Federico Chiesa also hitting the woodwork after half an hour in the Silesian Stadium.Poland could thank Wojciech Szczesny for keeping them in the game with the under-pressure goalkeeper denying Alessandro Florenzi, Jorginho, Federico Bernardeschi and Juventus teammate Giorgio Chiellini in the first half.Italy had a goal disallowed after 65 minutes following a well-worked pass between Bernardeschi and Marco Verratti with Insigne offside in the box.Poland also had a couple of chances in the second half with Kamil Grosicki denied by Gianluigi Donnarumma, with Arkadiusz Milik curling over.– ‘Never say die attitude’ –Roberto Mancini got his first competitive win as Italy coach. © AFP / Marco BERTORELLOJust when it looked as if both sides would settle for a draw, off the last corner, substitute Kevin Lasagna, who made his international debut, steered in for the Biraghi to finish off.“It had looked as if the match was jinxed,” said Biraghi.“The minutes were going by and the ball wouldn’t go in.“When you create a lot and the ball doesn’t go in you start to get nervous, even risk losing.“Instead we stayed calm and believed until the end. This victory is thanks to the group’s never say die attitude.”The result ensures Italy stayed in the tier ahead of December’s Euro 2020 qualifying draw.Italy next host Portugal on November 17 with Poland playing in Portugal three days later.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Defender Cristiano Biraghi (L) scored his first goal for Italy. © AFP / Janek SKARZYNSKICHORZOW, Poland, Oct 15 – Cristiano Biraghi snatched a late victory to give new Italy coach Roberto Mancini his first competitive victory and keep the Azzurri’s Nations League hopes alive with a 1-0 win over Poland in their League A Group 3 clash in Chorzow on Sunday.Defender Biraghi, 26, slid in the winner two minutes into injury time for his first goal for Italy in a game his team had dominated.

100 JOBS LOST AS AN BORD PLEANALA REFUSES PERMISSION FOR TESCO STORE

first_imgThe Twin Towns of Ballybofey and Stranorlar have been dealt a blow after Tesco was refused planning permission for a giant supermarket.Planning permission had been granted last May for the store by Donegal County Council on the Donegal Road on the outskirts of the town.However An Bord Pleanala has turned down the development which could have created up to 100 full and part-time jobs. The total size of the development was to be 4,309 square metres and it included a new right hand turn off the N15 on the main Ballybofey to Donegal Town Road.It also included car parking for 256 cars and there was hopes that at least 50 jobs would be created as a result of the new store opening.Local county councillor Martin Harley told Donegaldaily.com that he was very disappointed with the latest refusal.“I have always said that I thought this would be a good development for the people of the Twin Towns. Where else are we going to find 100 jobs? “I know there might have been concerns from smaller businesses about such a large development.“But Tesco interviewed more than 1,500 local people and more than 60% said shopped outside of the Twin Towns anyway.“I’m not sure what the reasons are for turning down the planning permission but I do think that we should continue to see if we can get this development back on track,” he said.The development was objected to by independent grocers group RGDATA who claimed the development would have an adverse impact on the existing town centre and encourage car dependence.The planning refusal is the latest in a long saga involving the supermarket giant’s attempt to build a supermarket in the town. The company was granted planning permission to build a store in 2005 but the decision was turned down after an appeal to An Bord Pleanála by a Galway planning agency on behalf of Shane Fitzgerald.This time Northline Developments on behalf of Tesco was granted planning permission to build the store by Donegal County Council.The latest refusal of planning by An Bord Pleanala comes just a few weeks after Lidl opened a new store in the town.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily100 JOBS LOST AS AN BORD PLEANALA REFUSES PERMISSION FOR TESCO STORE was last modified: November 16th, 2011 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:BallybofeyCllr Martin HarleyStranorlartescolast_img read more

Rhian Brewster lauds Gerrard for helping fight abuse and why he quit Chelsea

first_img RANKED Chelsea confident of beating Man United and Liverpool to Sancho signing targets moving on “Every game that it (the abuse) happened, I was playing really well and so he told me it was their way of trying to get to me because they couldn’t match me in terms of ability.“He said they were using it to try and put me off my game and so the best way to react to the idiots would be to show just how much better I can be.”Brewster, who signed a new five-year Liverpool deal this summer, went on to laud Gerrard for his coaching style and pinpointed the new Rangers boss as a key figure in his development.He said: “He would tell me ‘as a midfielder, this is where I’d expect you to be.’ You get to understand the types of runs better like that. LATEST Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade 6 6 “Having him pass me the ball during sessions was very helpful, because it directed you on where to finish.“And it makes you realise that in the same way, your movement can dictate where you receive the ball so you’re always thinking about that.“It’s a loss to the academy that he’s now at Rangers, but it’s great for him and I know he’ll do big things.”Brewster joined Liverpool’s youth setup at 14 after beginning his career with Chelsea, and revealed the moment he realised he had to leave the London club. 6 Gerrard is the new Rangers boss, his first managerial role Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti 6 Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January Rhian Brewster has revealed the role Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard played in helping him fight racist abuse, and also explained why he quit Chelsea to join the Reds.The 18-year-old, who won the World Cup Golden Boot with England under-17s last summer, opened up over Gerrard’s helping hand as youth boss after allegations of racism made by the striker last year. 6 IN DEMAND Brewster claimed he was racially abused by members of the Sevilla and Spartak Moscow academy sides in the Uefa Youth League, but the authorities were unable to prove any of his claims.In an interview with JOE.co.uk, Brewster hailed the Anfield hero, who was Liverpool under-18s manager at the time, for his influence following the incidents.Brewster said: “Stevie was an exceptional manager for me on the pitch and personally.“He was constantly making sure that I was okay, he was always available if I needed to chat or get things off my chest. LATEST TRANSFER NEWS “I realised all the names we were mentioning hadn’t played for Chelsea’s first team and there didn’t seem to be a chance for those still at the club to get promoted to the seniors.“There were some unbelievable youngsters at the academy. It became clear that the problem was opportunities and that they weren’t being made available, even to guys we thought would 100 per cent move up.“I didn’t want to leave because I’d been there for so long, I did love Chelsea and they played a big part in my early development.“I knew that it wasn’t about what was comfortable and the easy option though, but what was best for me. I’m very glad I took the decision.” Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer Gerrard took on an academy coaching role with Liverpool after 710 games in 17 seasons with the club Brewster toured Australia with the Liverpool first team last year The striker has 24 goals in 27 England youth appearances LIVING THE DREAM Chelsea have come under fire for their handling of young players in recent years, with as many as 38 players having to be loaned out last season.The likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jeremie Boga and Nathaniel Chalobah have failed to break into the first team in recent years despite being lauded as potential stars, and Brewster spoke of an epiphany he had about his own future.He said: “There was nothing special or different about that day.“It was after football, and as usual, my dad and I spoke about how it went and the areas I wanted to work on. We then got talking about players who were doing well at the academy and ones that had done so in the past.

Vandals, thieves hit two schools

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “We will have private security here tonight, and the school will be rekeyed Tuesday,” Rainville said on Monday. Myers said the vandals also took a laser printer, but abandoned it at a bike rack. At Meadows School, also in Valencia, a computer hard drive was taken after a window was removed from one of the portable classrooms sometime between 10 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Sunday. “What is disturbing is that this (is) part of a rash of episodes,” Principal Peggy O’Brien said. “In mid-September, another teacher’s classroom was broken into, and they took a computer, which somebody found later on McBean Parkway. And in late September, the computer lab itself was broken into – the same deal where they lifted the window from the frame.” In the late-September incident, O’Brien said, vandals cut wires on the school’s multimedia projector and took parts of the school’s wireless system. The lab recently reopened after repairs were completed at the end of October. VALENCIA – Vandals got into Valencia Valley and Meadows elementary schools over the weekend and took computer components, keys and a server for Valencia Valley’s bell and fire alarm systems. The thieves hit Valencia Valley between 4:30 p.m. Sunday and 6:30 a.m. Monday, leaving no sign of forced entry, said sheriff’s Sgt. Cortland Myers and Principal Tammi Rainville. A church uses schoolrooms on Sunday mornings, and Rainville speculated that the vandals entered during services and hid until worshippers left. “They went through the administration office, and once they got into the main portion of the school, then used crowbars to get into the classrooms,” Myers said. Rainville said at least six classrooms were vandalized, and a window in her office was broken. Along with two laptop computers, more than 200 keys for the school were taken, and a monitor was smashed in one of the classrooms. Contents of the cupboards and drawers also were scattered on the floors. “We’re thankful they didn’t do any vandalism other than taking the computers,” she said of the latest incident. “But our kids aren’t happy. They were here when the fingerprint people were here and saw the deputies taking the report. The nice thing is that when word gets out that we’ve experienced criminal activity, everybody wants to help.” Carol Rock, (661) 257-5252 carol.rock@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
