“This win is for the fans” – ‘Tuffy’ dedicates match-winning goal to Waterhouse faithful

first_img FOR THE FANS “They are the ones that fight for me, and every time I touch the field, they are the ones I want to play for because they motivate me. So this win is for the fans,” he said. Anderson was also happy to get off the mark for the season and he believes they are now a force to be reckoned with again. “Five straight (wins) is what I want, but the motivation from senior players has been good. With me and English back in, everything has been moving on the right track. We can’t do nothing wrong right now,” Anderson commented on the recent addition of himself and long-time club stalwart Irvino English to the squad. “We just have to work as one and fight as one. “I just want to kick it (scoring) off. I’m off the mark now, I’m back now,” he added. Both teams had the share of chances in the first half, with Anderson getting Waterhouse’s best opportunities and Mitchily Waul wasting two great chances to put Tivoli in front. “All the pressure that existed before Jermaine came in was lifted when he came in. He brought a level of leadership. Along with English and Weston Forrest, they have guided the youngsters and this is what we needed,” said Marvin Tate, Waterhouse’s coach. COMETH the hour, cometh the man. Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson, in his first full game for Waterhouse FC this season, scored the game’s only goal to give the struggling Drewsland club a 1-0 win over Tivoli Gardens FC in their Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) football game at Drewsland Mini Stadium yesterday. Tivoli played the last seven minutes with 10 players after Jermain ‘Teddy’ Johnson received a second yellow card. Anderson, who has had his off-field issues with the club before and during the season, had to leave the game after 35 minutes due to a clash of heads with Rosario Harriott in his first match last week. But after fluffing his lines on a couple chances in the first half and coming close on a few occasions in the second period, ‘Tuffy’ broke the deadlock 65 minutes into the contest when he turned home a pass from last week’s two-goal hero Rodave Murray from six yards. “This is my job (scoring goals) and I always come out and give my all for Waterhouse fans., These fans build me, they fight for me. When I score, I go and give the fans my heart because, trust me, even when I went on trial and made that team (overseas), those fans are still not like Waterhouse fans,” said Anderson.last_img read more

Water issue in Diamond to be regularised by weekend – GWI

first_img… water distribution exercise to commenceAs the water woes in Little Diamond Squatting Area, East Bank Demerara (EBD) continue, the Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) has indicated that its team would be working to have the water flow regularised by this weekend.In the meantime, the utility company will commence a water distribution exercise via tankers throughout the course of this week in the affected areas.This was according to the acting Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the company, Kirk Clarke, who informed <<>> that they were working to address the water shortage as soon as possible.Commenting on the root of the problem, Clarke explained that it was not water main problems in Little Diamond but rather a breakage in Mocha, EBD, which resulted in the shortage of water.Noting the recent complaints by residents as it relates to acquiring water for domestic purposes, Clarke confirmed that the company’s team would be visiting the area daily to distribute water.In cases where persons are not present at home during the day to receive their supply of water, the team will have another exercise during the evening hours so that every resident could benefit.However, GWI assured that the engineering team would be working around the clock to have the situation fixed so that the situation could return to normal.According to the residents who spoke with this publication recently, the area has been without water for the past month and little has been done by the nation’s water supplier to have the issue addressed.One resident said GWI personnel had visited the area for their regular assessment of water metres, but when the situation was reported, they had responded “there is nothing that we can do”.Another resident said the team had been working on the main and informed the residents that they could not locate the fault and, therefore, could not address it.Meanwhile, the residents had expressed their frustration since it was their belief that the GWI was turning a deaf ear to their complaints.They had stated that their families were being inconvenienced as a result of the shortage.“I have to go to work and I got children to send to school, so we need something to be done immediately,” one resident said.last_img read more

Director of Public Information blasted for ‘distasteful’ statement

first_imgPIO MPs India conference– Resident Indian High Commissioner fires backDirector of Public Information at the Office of the Prime Minister, Imran Khan, has been upbraided for what was described as a ‘distasteful’ comment directed at the resident Indian High Commissioner to Guyana, His Excellency Mr Mahalingam Venkatachalam, regarding the selection of Members of Parliament for a conference in India.Khan, a member of the Alliance for Change (AFC) component of the Coalition APNU-AFC Administration, took to social media to call out High Commissioner Venkatachalam on the issue of several sitting MPs of Indian origin – from both the Government and parliamentary Opposition benches — attending the first-ever PIO (Person of Indian Origin) Parliamentarian Conference in India.“Something smells. And it ain’t parfum. Is the Indian High Commission in Guyana interfering in Guyana’s internal affairs and attempting to engage in destabilisation of the Coalition Government?” Khan questioned, while tagging the Indian diplomat in his personalised comment.Director of Public Information, Imran KhanKhan went a bit further, asking whether any of the Indo-Guyanese ministers of Government and sitting MPs were invited to the conference currently ongoing in India? “Or did the High Commission only and deliberately invite three Coalition Government backbench parliamentarians while specifically ignoring ministers? If so, on what basis was this decision made?” Khan further questioned.Khan also questioned whether it was true that 23 Guyanese MPs were invited in this regard, and that 20 of the invitees are Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) MPs while a mere three are Government MPs.While there were several arguments pertaining to whether Khan should be asking these questions, or whether it was a direct attack on the Indian High Commissioner, several people found it strange that Khan, a public office bearer, would raise these concerns with a foreign mission in such a forum.Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence also took umbrage at the statement made by Khan, and expressed her displeasure by saying, “Imran Khan, this is distasteful and not in keeping with how this Government treats their guests. Please remove this post.”Venkatachalam, on the other hand, later responded to the post by stating that many persons in the top hierarchy of the Guyana Government and the Guyana High Commission in New Delhi are aware of the invitations from the Government of India for 23 MPs and 3 Mayors of Guyana, and of the rationale behind inviting only those Persons of Indian Origin MPs who are not Ministers.“Hence reckless comments on such a serious issue on social media with the clear intention to mislead the general public by none other than Director of Public Information is unfortunate, irresponsible, unprofessional; and to say the least, mischievous, given the excellent bilateral relations being enjoyed by both India and Guyana and the ongoing friendly cooperation in various multilateral fora,” the High Commissioner chided.Meanwhile, in response to posts on social media and in sections of the mainstream media criticising the PPP for sending a total of 17 Parliamentarians to a conference in India, Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira responded that her party had received invitations and accepted them. She claimed that soon after, in December, preparations were put in place for the selected individuals to attend the event, which is being hosted by India. This, she said, affected the attendance of those Opposition MPs in Parliament on Wednesday.The Opposition Chief Whip also rebuffed criticisms at the selection of Opposition Parliamentarian Clement Rohee to form part of the delegation attending the conference. She said Rohee is of Indian origin, as his name suggests, and his parentage background is also Indian.Among the Guyana delegation to attend the conference are three MPs from the Coalition Government and three mayors. The trip is being funded by the Indian Government.The PPP delegation is led by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, and includes Clement Rohee, Irfaan Ali, Anil Nandlall, Dr. Frank Anthony, Dharamkumar Seeraj, Dr. Vindhya Persaud, Indranie Chandarpal, Colin Croal, Dr Bheri Ramsarran, Zulfikar Mustapha, Ganga Persaud, Neendkumar, Dr. Vishwa Mahadeo, Nigel Dharamlall, Bhagmattie Veerasammy and Vickram Bharrat.The coalition members are Rajcoomarie Bancroft, Charrandass Persaud and Haimraj Rajkumar. Corriverton Mayor Krishnand Jaichand, Anna Regina Mayor Rabindranauth Mohan and Rose Hall Town Mayor Vijay Ramoo are also in attendance at the conference.A total of 141 public representatives from various countries participated in the conference, with some 124 MPs coming from the UK, Canada, Fiji, Kenya, Mauritius, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and other countries.The purpose of the conference was to help to establish a network with leaders of Indian origin in various countries, and get a feedback on the direction in which Indian engagement with the Diaspora should proceed. The trip is being funded by the Indian Government.last_img read more

Arsenal blow! Lyon make move for midfield target

first_imgLyon have moved ahead of Arsenal in the race for Marcelo Brozovic.The Gunners were chasing the 22-year-old back in January before he opted to join Inter Milan on a one-and-a-half-year loan from Dinamo Zagreb.Arsenal reportedly still hold an interest in the midfielder, who has been dubbed the Croatian Xavi.However, according to L’Equipe, Lyon have now moved ahead of Arsene Wenger’s side in the chase for Brozovic.The French side are big fans of the Inter star and are ready to buy him out of his loan, which still has 12 months to run.Inter, though, are reluctant to see the player leave after they sold fellow midfielder Mateo Kovacic to Real Madrid earlier this week.

Animal-lover on judge-hopeful list

first_imgCANYON COUNTRY – A degree in zoology might be just the thing a judge-hopeful needs to tame a courtroom full of feisty participants. Daviann Mitchell knew from the age of 11 that she wanted to work with animals. She convinced a pet shop owner to give her a job cleaning the store, a job that grew into grooming and caring for dogs and a degree in handling wild things. But on the long and winding road that followed school, littered with stops as a police officer and litigator, the Canyon Country resident has set her sights on a Los Angeles Superior Court seat vacated by Judge Michael Knight. Mitchell is one of six candidates for the office on the June ballot. “It’s one thing to be an advocate, but quite another to determine if there is enough to file a case,” she said. Like many students, Mitchell discovered after college that what she studied wasn’t all she wanted to do. She knew animals and liked police work, so she joined the Sacramento Police Department, working with narcotics-enforcement dogs. “I knew than that I didn’t want to become a veterinarian or work in zoology,” she said. “I couldn’t tell people that their dog had passed away.” While working with the Police Department, Mitchell spent her spare time learning how to show dogs, taking her focus off the day-to-day grind of working with the public. In 1982, she established Nighthawk Rottweilers, named after one of her police dogs, Hawk. Over the past 23 years, she has bred and shown dogs all over the world, including the Rottweiler named Best of Breed at the prestigious American Kennel Club Westminster Show in 2003. “Coming out on that green carpet (at the show) was one of the most exciting things that ever happened to me,” she said. If getting up at the crack of dawn to make the morning bus to downtown Los Angeles isn’t enough, Mitchell rises even earlier to feed and exercise the dogs that share her rambling home. Part of her passion is dispelling the misconception that Rottweilers are vicious dogs. “It used to be one of the top breeds in the American Kennel Club,” she said, as her 5-year-old daughter Mary Ann cuddled Smoochy, a black-and-brown 100-pound bundle of affection. “They were bred to herd cattle and are a big, powerful, strong breed. They are loyal, loving, have a good work ethic and are willing to make their owners happy. But you don’t leave children unattended with a dog like that. People have to be responsible owners, too.” After graduating in 1992 from Southwestern Law School, Mitchell clerked for Judge E.M. Gunderson, chief justice of the Nevada Supreme Court. She was the only woman picked for a Department of Justice honors program and realized that she’d found a home in the justice system. Her mentors encouraged her to become a trial lawyer. Mitchell joined the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office in 1994, working on domestic violence, child abuse and sex crimes, and is currently part of the Hardcore Gang Division, which prosecutes the most difficult gang violence cases. Her current conviction rate is 94 percent. “I truly believe that the way we handle people in court can make a difference in the outcome,” she said. “I’ve worked with some of the worst people in the world, but I treat everyone with respect. I see a judge as someone who can influence civil rights. “Many of the victims I see are immigrants or people of color who are disregarded by the system. Their voices go largely unheard in the community. My job is to help them be heard.” She also has a strong sense of community service and was honored by Theater of Hope for Abused Women, and was appointed by the governor to the state board of Guide Dogs for the Blind. Her family is deeply involved with the Guardians, a Jewish organization that helps the aging population, as well as the City of Hope. “It was instilled in me as a young person,” she said. “Grandpa never had a day off because he was always doing something. When you have the benefit of a good life in a good community, you need to give back.” Carol Rock, (661)257-5252 carol.rock@dailynews.com AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘Something went wrong but we will improve next season’, vows Man City star

first_imgFernandinho accepts “something went wrong” with Manchester City’s season but is confident of a bright future under manager Pep Guardiola.City began Guardiola’s reign with ten straight wins and rising optimism but will end the campaign trophyless, with the likelihood of a Champions League place their only tonic.A 2-1 success over Leicester on Saturday ensured two more victories – against West Brom and Watford – guarantees them third place but the Brazil international is already casting his mind forward.“This season has been tough for us, something went wrong. but at the end we still have a chance to go into the Champions League and I’m sure we can improve next season,” he said.“(Guardiola) has his own philosophy and we have proved already we are able to do what he wants.“We are trying to improve week by week, training session by training session. I’m sure we are improving, for the next two games and for next season as well.“Our target, our goal, is to win the next two games. Especially the next one at home in front of our own fans because I think they deserve it.“Then the last game is at Watford, which will be tough again but we are ready for that.”City were tipped by many as Premier League favourites back in August but fell so far off the pace Fernandinho did not even know the title was being settled by Chelsea’s 1-0 win over the Baggies on Friday.“No, I didn’t watch. I didn’t even know they were going to play on Friday night,” he said.“It’s crazy, sometimes you play Thursday, sometimes Friday, I didn’t know. But the way they have been playing this season they have been so consistent. They defended so well and play on the counter-attack with good players up front.“Most games the difference is one or two goals maximum but they are the most consistent and they deserve to win the title for that.”Asked if City could usurp Antonio Conte’s men next term, he added: “Yes, I feel that. But we’ll see what happens.” 1 Manchester City beat Leicester City 2-1 last_img read more
