Not only are two Turks and Caicos Islanders named to this vital unit, but we learn that the National Insurance Board Chairman, Colin Heartwell, will get early leave to act as consultant to Invest TCI. Finance Minister, Washington Misick is quoted in the press release issued late today as saying: “Our economy can only benefit by having an expert team working to bring together the needs of business and government in a more co-ordinated and coherent manner.” A banker and an attorney were approved by Cabinet for the inward investment agency chairs; they are Anton Faessler as Chairman and Tremaine Swann-Harvey as his Deputy. BWI Consultancy, which is owned by permanent resident, Colin Heartwell, reportedly won the opportunity to be consultant to the agency after a procurement process. TCIG shared: the TCI Government issued open tenders for consultancies for the TCIG Business Reform Strategy. One consultancy was for a Programme Director to lead the Business Reform Strategy initiative and the other consultancy was for an Investment Promotion Expert to assist the Board to develop institutional capacity; to strengthen and support investment promotion and economic development and; develop practical tools for the planning and managing of investments. Interested Bidders were invited to apply for one or other of the consultancies. Two tenders from within the TCI were received.

DNA from fight with intruder leads to mans arrest

first_imgA woman who was attacked in her Vancouver home along the Columbia River last summer helped police identify a suspect in two ways, using her fighting spirit and her memory, police say.Police arrested Mark A. Markussen of Washougal on Monday, more than three months after the alleged home-invasion robbery, first reported about 8:20 a.m. Aug. 17 in the 15300 block of Southeast Rivershore Drive, south of Evergreen Highway and the BNSF Railway tracks.The woman told police she heard someone enter her garage and saw a strange man pointing what looked like a handgun at her.She said the man grabbed her and forced her into her office, while asking her if anyone else was home, a police bulletin said.Police said she used a ruse to escape briefly, but the assailant caught her in her driveway and forced her back inside.Later, in a struggle with the intruder, she escaped again and fled to a neighbor’s home.The first break in the case surfaced immediately, Detective Sgt. Scott Creager with the Vancouver Police Department’s Major Crimes Team said Wednesday.The intruder had worn latex gloves but, in the struggle, the woman tore them and inflicted a small scratch on him. Detectives found a small amount of blood on her hands, believed to be his, and saved it for DNA analysis, Creager said.Her physical injuries from the attack weren’t serious but she suffered emotional trauma, Creager said. In describing the intruder, the woman mentioned that he looked like someone who had done some work for her, and she gave police the worker’s name as a possible suspect.last_img read more

Searchers find the body of missing Salmon Creek man

first_imgAt the end of a daylong search along the Salmon Creek Greenway, search and rescuers on Saturday afternoon found the body of a missing man.The body of Craig Spydell, 43, was found in an isolated area about a mile from the Salmon Creek Greenway trail head in the 13800 block of Northwest 36th Avenue.

Spydell’s body was being transported to the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office for examination.“It appears to be self-inflicted,” Allais said Saturday evening.More than two dozen people, K-9 units and six search and rescue teams, including Clark County Search and Rescue, were hunting for Spydell since 9 a.m. Saturday.He vanished nearly two weeks ago, and family members feared that he had harmed himself.

Autopsy reveals alleged prowler was shot in chest

first_imgDead man’s kin: ‘We just think it’s unfair’A 19-year-old Portland man who was shot by a Vancouver resident early Tuesday morning died of gunshot wounds to the chest, the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office said Thursday.Iosif Dumitrash was fatally shot about 4 a.m. Tuesday. Police took a 911 call about a reported prowler, later identified as Dumitrash, who was outside of a home at 14802 N.E. 33rd St. Four minutes later, police received another call that the homeowner, Sean Doucette, had shot Dumitrash in the street where police later found “numerous empty shell casings,” according to court documents.Doucette, who was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, was released from the Clark County Jail Thursday on $250,000 bail. In court Wednesday, Doucette’s attorney, Steven Thayer, said Dumitrash had attacked Doucette. He said the shooting was in self-defense.Another witness, unnamed in court records, told investigators that Doucette and Dumitrash had fallen to the ground during the altercation. The witness said the two then separated, and Dumitrash began to walk away when Doucette shot him, according to records.last_img read more

States railroads at odds over oiltrain information

first_imgAnyone with time, patience and a sharp enough eye to make out the number 1267 on a small placard can spot a crude oil train rolling through town.“It’s not hard to miss,” said Matt Landon, a 35-year-old community organizer who co-founded Vancouver Action Network to monitor oil shipments. “You just look for the mile-long oil train.”It’s tougher, though, to establish a pattern for oil train movements through the state. That information might someday be vital to emergency service providers in the event of a spill or, worse yet, an explosion of the highly volatile crude oil coming out of North Dakota’s Bakken shale formation. But BNSF Railway, which is transporting most of that oil in Washington, doesn’t think it should have to tell the public the routes, numbers of trains and quantities of the shipments moving through their communities.The railroad’s position is backed by the U.S. Department of Transportation, which recently ordered railroads to share information with states about the movement of Bakken crude, but with the understanding that the data would go only to emergency responders.Despite the stance of BNSF, other railroads and the federal transportation department that the information is too sensitive to release widely, Washington and several other states are refusing to sign confidentiality agreements, instead insisting that such information would be public under state open-records laws.last_img read more
