PPP/C Regional Councillor denies lying to RDC

first_imgA People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Region Six (East Berbice/Corentyne) councillor is insisting that the information provided about Orealla lacking the services of a doctor is accurate.Laddy Peneux, the PPP RDC Orealla representative, has been supplying the RDC with information which suggested that the Amerindian reservation has been without a regular doctor for more than a year, contradicting claims made by Director of Regional Health Services, Jevaughn Stephen, to the effect that a doctor had been sent to the community, which is home to 1500 villagers.When the RC met on Thursday, Chairman of the Regional Health Committee, Zamal Hussain, presented a committee report which recommended that Peneux should refrain from reporting inaccuracies to the RDC; failing which, disciplinaryPPP RDC Orealla representative Laddy Peneuxaction should be taken against him.Peneux had, in February, told the RDC that the doctor had been absent from the community since November. The Regional Health Committee was instructed to visit the community, during which the Orealla Village Councillors stated that the doctor had been living on the reservation over the past year, except for the period when his wife was pregnant and when he had to seek medical attention on the coastland.When the issue was raised on Thursday, the RDC was critical of the reports Laddy Peneux had been providing. This RDC had, for eleven months, been engaged in discussing this issue, and the information we were receiving was inaccurate, Councillor Shurla Scott said.Peneux, however, has maintained that there have been problems with the attendance of a doctor at Orealla; but according to the Director of Regional Health Services, the doctor at Orealla also serves the neighbouring community of Siparuta — situated five miles from Orealla and having a population of 300 persons.However, the Region Six Chairman has said he would ask the Captain of the reservation to provide a monthly report on the doctor’s activity.last_img read more

Library may open in store

first_imgGLENDALE – City officials expect to open Glendale’s newest library early next year in a storefront in the Adams Square neighborhood, thanks to a new lease worked out with a local property owner. The lease needs to be approved at Tuesday’s City Council meeting in order for the city to start renovating the site for a 2,200-square-foot library. The storefront library, less than half the size of a regular library, is meant to serve local residents who now get books by driving to another branch or waiting for a bookmobile to drive by. Building a full-scale library can cost tens of millions of dollars. The city hopes to bring a bigger one to the neighborhood in a few years. “The idea was, `OK, let’s get something small up and running quickly,’ ” said Nancy Hunt-Coffey, the city’s director of library services. “It may not have all the bells and whistles of a full-scale branch library, but at least it gets something in the hands of kids before they graduate from high school.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The space for the library is in an art deco building at Chevy Chase Drive and Adams Street. It would be leased from the building’s owner, Neighborhood Legal Services, which is asking for $3,832 a month. Renovating, furnishing and equipping the space for a library with 5,000 books would cost $946,375, Hunt-Coffey said. Meanwhile, the city is looking several years ahead and planning expansions. “I don’t think we have sufficient libraries in the city,” Mayor Rafi Manoukian said. “All you have to do is go to some of these libraries around the schools, like Grandview, and see how heavily they are used and how crowded they are.” The city has a central library, a combined library and art center and five branch locations. One of the projects city officials are considering involves expanding the Montrose Branch Library, which sits next to an aging fire station. Officials want to build a fire station across the street on a site the city bought in 1998 for $1.8 million and use the vacant space from the old station to expand the library. The city is also considering closing the Casa Verdugo Branch at 1151 N. Brand Blvd., and possibly the Grandview Branch at 1535 Fifth St., both decades old and too small. The city would replace them with a bigger library at Hoover High School that residents and students could use. Officials have noticed changes in the way the city’s libraries are used. Instead of just taking out books, visitors now rely on the library for Internet access and go there as a place to meet, do homework and take part in cultural activities. “If Barnes & Noble can provide a bookstore with a little coffee area inside and a little sitting space and a book area,” Manoukian said, “I don’t see why the city can’t move in that direction as well.” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mine disaster sparks anger

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Security guards blocked the front gate as about a dozen people stood outside in subfreezing weather and a nighttime fog. Four women argued loudly with the guards, demanding to be let in to look for missing relatives. “Why won’t you let us in?” one shouted. When the guards refused, the women shouted obscenities at the men. People who answered the phone at the mine office said they were too busy to give any information. The incident is a setback for Chinese officials struggling to improve safety in the coal mining industry. Most disasters are blamed on disregard of safety rules or lack of equipment for ventilation or fire control. Local officials often are accused of helping mine owners or managers flout safety rules. Beijing has unveiled one safety initiative after another in recent years. It has announced the creation of a national network of safety inspectors, stricter fire standards and shorter working hours for miners to prevent fatigue. QITAIHE, China – Anxious relatives demanded to be allowed into a coal mine Monday after an explosion killed at least 138 miners and left 11 others missing, adding to a soaring death toll in China’s mines despite a safety crackdown. The blast in the Dongfeng Coal Mine prompted national leaders to demand stricter enforcement of safety rules in China’s mining industry, by far the world’s deadliest, with more than 5,000 fatalities a year in fires, floods and other accidents. The disaster late Sunday came as the nearby city of Harbin was struggling to recover from a toxic spill in a river that forced the government to cut off water supplies for five days. Outside the Qitaihe mine in China’s northeast, a stream of emergency vehicles with flashing red lights and black government sedans made their way up and down the narrow, two-lane road to the mine entrance. Authorities say they have shut down more than 12,000 coal mines this year for safety inspections. Thousands have been ordered to improve their facilities and many others aren’t expected to reopen. The government said the explosion in Qitaihe was blamed on airborne coal dust that ignited. But there was no word on whether it was believed to involve misconduct or human error. Rescuers had found 74 miners alive by Monday, the official Xinhua News Agency said. It said 138 miners died in the explosion and a team of 269 rescuers was searching for 11 others, but gave no indication whether they were believed to be alive.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MCD polls: Hema Malini holds roadshow in Delhi as BJP rolls out star campaigner

first_imgThe BJP finally rolled out its biggest star attraction, Bollywood dream girl Hema Malini, in its high-voltage MCD election campaign.The Mathura MP descended on the Capital early on Saturday morning and participated in a roadshow with Union minister for science and technology and earth sciences Harsh Vardhan, in his constituency Chandni Chowk.The veteran actor – smartly clad in a pink saree and sporting shades, with her staff holding up a big green umbrella – mounted an open vehicle with Harsh Vardhan.Inspite of the continuous rose petal showers and cheers from onlookers, she looked visibly uncomfortable in the 40 degree Celsius Delhi summer.The two covered 15 MCD wards including Model Town, Sadar Bazar, Ballimaran, Matiya Mahal and Chandni Chowk, with an entourage of more than 100 bikes and cars bearing the saffron flag in tow.’ONLY NATIONALIST PARTY IN INDIA’While the Padma Shri awardee preferred to escape the heat the moment it got over and left in her car, Harsh Vardhan said, “In 1990, when the BJP was created, we were called ‘communal.’ Now, people realise that we are not a sectarian or communal but the only ‘nationalist’ party in India.”The convoy carried posters of various BJP candidates in the MCD election from Chandni Chowk including Seema Gupta from Ward number 77N, Model Nagar, and Harishankar Babu from Ward number 76N, Sangam Park.On the Aam Aadmi Party, Harsh Vardhan said, “They deliberately choked municipal bodies of funds, which they lawfully deserved. In fact, the central government passes funds to the Delhi government, a part of which has to be furthered to MCDs, but the Delhi government didn’t do that.”advertisementOn Kejriwal, he said, “Delhiites will teach him a lesson just as he has been given a befitting response in the Rajouri Garden bypoll few days back.”We will selflessly serve Delhi if we come to power again.
