first_imgMonths after contact awardedThe continuation of the paved road from the airstrip junction to the North West Secondary School area in Region One (Barima-Waini) is at a standstill and according to Regional Chairman Brentnol Ashley, no effort is being made to commence works on the project.Ashley, in an interview with Guyana Times on Saturday, said that to date the contractor who was awarded the contract in 2018 is yet to turn up at the site to begin preliminary works.“Up to now, the contractor has not turned up not even to show that they are mobilising to get the work done. Things like that are incomplete in this region. This was a Ministry of Infrastructure project that was awarded since last year.”In addition, other projects, Ashley said, which should have already commenced for 2019, are yet to begin.The sum of $3.4 billion was approved for the Region One Regional Administration during budgetary allocations in December 2018.Ashley posited that three months have passed since the budgetary year began and the region is only now in the process of advertising for the capital projects.“It is in the third month and the region is yet to… it was expected that these projects would have been awarded at least by the 2nd week to the 3rd week of January. They should have started advertising so that by now the contractors would have been able to at least be awarded the contracts for what they are for so that work could have started,” he told this publication.He also stated that at the end of this year, if the monies from 2018’s budgetary allocation have not been utilised then they would be returned to the national treasury and many of these projects would have to be “rolled over” to 2020.“Some of these projects are for the construction of health facilities, enclosure of buildings, gridding and shaping of roads, rehabilitation to health and education facilities, purchasing of vehicles and ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles) etc.”On December 12, last year, under the education capital programme for 2019, the sum of $151.200 million was approved for rehabilitative work to the Port Kaituma Primary and Secondary Schools and extension of White-Water Nursery School. The sum also catered for the construction of sanitary blocks at Waramuri, Port Kaituma and St John’s Primary Schools and the construction and enclosure of living quarters at Unity Square and Manawarin. Some $21.9 million was to be spent on school furniture and equipment Including equipment for smart classrooms, desks, benches, cupboards, tables, chairs, racks, fire extinguishers, musical and sports equipment at several schools in the region.$15.7 million was also allocated for transportation. The money caters for boats and outboard engines at Moruca, Barama, Pawaikuru, and St Nicholas, Waramuri and Santa Cruz Primary and Santa Rosa Secondary Schools among others.In the area of health, $101.1 million was allocated for the completion of an X-ray room at Pakera District Hospital and staff quarters at Mabaruma; construction of a maternity waiting home at Santa Rosa, health training complex at Mabaruma; health post at Parakese and incinerator at Kwabanna; enclosure of living quarters and upgrading of the central duct system at Mabaruma Regional Hospital and provisions for hot water baths.

first_img Leone moved to St. George, Utah, after retiring and often invited deputies for fishing trips. He had returned to Los Angeles to run in the marathon. Reyna, 52, was a veteran detective in the LAPD division that investigates officer-involved shootings. Laid back and approachable, he was always willing to offer advice on other cases, Voge said. On Monday, officers in his division papered their office door with pictures of Reyna. “He was one of the hardest workers,” Voge said. “Just a straight-out genuinely nice man, a consummate professional and an absolutely good person. That’s why he affected so many people here. It shocked us all. “This department, this division and this city are going to miss him.” Josh Kleinbaum, (818) 713-3669 josh.kleinbaum@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A few months ago, when somebody asked LAPD Detective Raul Reyna why he liked to run marathons, his answer was pretty simple: Why not? “He said, ‘It just sounds like something to do,”‘ said Capt. Jim Voge, commanding officer of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Force Investigation Division. “It’s a challenge, and he looked forward to completing it.” Reyna, an avid runner with a handful of marathons under his belt, died Sunday after suffering a heart attack at mile 24 of the Los Angeles Marathon. James Leone, a retired sheriff’s deputy running his 11th L.A. Marathon, died of a heart attack in the third mile of the 26.2-mile race. In the previous 20 runnings of the event, only one person died of a heart attack, officials said.

Leone, 60, worked as a patrol and jail deputy and facility supervisor at the sheriff’s Industry Station from 1981 until his retirement in 2000. A mechanical whiz who could fix a car or an airplane, he was also involved in the Shriners and the Free Masons. Leone was a black-belt martial artist and an avid runner. He’d often dress up as a clown to entertain sick children at local hospitals, making balloon animals for the patients. “He’d make kids laugh,” said sheriff’s Detective Ljot Inglis, who knew Leone for 18 years. “He’d make them bunny rabbits, poodles, Indian headdresses, all out of balloons. “It doesn’t sound like much, but to a kid that’s sick, it’s a lot.” last_img read more
