Wisroc benefits from road improvements

first_imgResidents of Wisroc Phase Two in Wismar, Linden, Region Ten (Upper Demerara–Berbice) are now breathing a sigh of relief after the main access road to their community, which was virtually destroyed by erosion, has been repaired.Residents had been complaining about the state of the road for several months. According to the Regional Democratic Council of Region 10, the repair project commenced some time ago, and was completed in a short amount of time.Residents of the area have expressed their appreciation for repairs done to the road, as their daily livelihoods were affected by the deplorable condition of this roadway.It was related that the erosion had started during the dry season in April 2019, when there reportedly was a high percentage of bush fires. One of those fires had been a threat to buildings in the area, and residents had been forced to open a main pipeline in the now eroded area to put out the inferno.The gushing water from the pipeline had been responsible for the initial erosion in the area, and the situation worsened when onset of the May/June rainy season.Region 10 Executive Officer Orrin Gordon declared he is grateful that the road has been repaired because the residents were suffering tremendously. He is also pleased with the engineering solution that was used to ensure that water-flow into the gully will be significantly decreased and the sediments would be trapped.The project was spearheaded by engineers who used concrete to rebuild the entire section of the road that was eroded. They reinstated the road-base and sub-base, and then constructed a concrete roadside drain and soak-away outlet system to drain the storm water down into the gully.They also installed a series of culvert tubes to channel the water into the gully. Concrete boxes were also constructed as sedimentation chambers to allow the sediments to be trapped as the water flows down. These are expected to be cleaned intermittently.last_img read more

GOP candidates seek support from Michigan activists

first_imgA day earlier, Rudy Giuliani made his own standard pitch as the four top Republican presidential hopefuls and a few underdogs descended on a picturesque island in Lake Huron to cozy up to 1,500 activists from this Midwestern state. It just became an early player in the nomination race by leapfrogging other states to move its primaries to Jan. 15. The race in Michigan is wide open, a microcosm of the national picture of the Republican nomination race four months before voting begins. There is no clear front-runner. Giuliani has an edge in national popularity polls. Thompson, in the race just two weeks, is giving chase. McCain is looking for momentum. Romney ranks behind them in national surveys, but leads in Iowa and New Hampshire, among the first states to vote. Trying to stand out from the crowded field, Romney is bluntly confronting problems plaguing the GOP in his new stump speech, fresh television ads and an open letter to party leaders. He is seeking to tap into anger among Republicans about the country’s direction even as one of their own, President George W. Bush, sits in the White House. In a blistering critique of Republicans, Romney argued that Republicans share the blame with Democrats for the nation’s woes. He bemoaned excessive spending, insecure borders and ethical lapses. “When Republicans act like Democrats, America loses,” he said. Even as he sought to distance himself from Bush, Romney gave him limited credit for keeping the United States safe and “restoring personal integrity and dignity to the White House.” But otherwise Romney rattled off a slew of problems with the government, saying, for example, that the post-Hurricane Katrina cleanup “didn’t look like Republicans were in charge.” Unlike Giuliani’s rambunctious reception the night before, Romney got only scattered and infrequent applause from an intently listening audience as he gave his stark assessment about the GOP’s woes. Only when he returned to his usual right-flank pitch – restoring family values, shrinking government and the like – did the audience come alive. Still, Romney’s views did resonate with at least some Republicans. “Things that Republicans normally stand for have been pushed to the side, and I think Mitt wants to get us back on track,” said Jim Gerchow, 61, a small-business owner from Sturgis, Mich., who so far isn’t backing a candidate. McCain made a similar argument for change last November as he began his campaign and just after Republicans sustained electoral losses up and down the ballot. Since then, and for a host of reasons, he watched his campaign falter and has shifted his focus. In his remarks Saturday, McCain sought to underscore the security threats the United States faces and likened himself – and these times – to a conservative behemoth and world dangers in the 1980s. “Today, the challenges are at least as severe as they were when Ronald Reagan stood tall,” he said. “And, today, the differences between Republicans and Democrats on national security are every bit as they were 30 years ago.” He assailed the national security positions of leading Democratic presidential candidates. He also renewed his call for resolve in Iraq and drew heavy applause throughout – and a standing ovation – from the friendly crowd. “To concede defeat – as many leading Democrats now advocate – would strengthen al-Qaida, empower Iran and other hostile powers in the Middle East, unleash a full-scale civil war in Iraq that could quite possibly provoke genocide there, and destabilize the entire region,” McCain said. Thompson, for his part, talked heavily about his biography, emphasized his commitment to federalism and renewed his call for a return to so-called first principles of fiscal restraint, free markets, personal liberties, and smaller government.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. – Courting party faithful Saturday, Republican Mitt Romney promised to return a wayward GOP to its core principles while rival John McCain portrayed himself as the most qualified to take charge of the country amid dangerous times ahead. “Change must begin with us,” Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, told activists as he challenged a GOP reeling from excessive spending and embarrassing scandals to “put our own house in order.” Taking a broader view, McCain, the Arizona senator, lamented “a perilous time for our party but, far more important, a perilous time for our country” as he gave a sobering assessment of worldwide threats. Fred Thompson, the actor-politician, gave his usual low-key stump speech filled with general conservative themes. last_img read more

Aoife ni Chiarain scored two great baskets during this phase. Glenties starting 5 came back on in the third quarter and proceeded to dominate affairs with the silky skilled Danielle McDevitt to the fore.

Irish peat firm enters SA market

first_img13 February 2008Cape Town-based Echo Horticulture has acquired sole rights to distribute Harte Peat mushroom casing soil from Ireland in the sub-Saharan African region, with the company also hoping to supply a third of South Africa’s mushroom market.According to Freshinfo.com, the deal was concluded during an Irish trade mission to South Africa in January that was headed by the Irish prime minister. Harte Peat founder and MD Thomas O’Harte was among 50 Irish business leaders who also made the trip.Echo Horticulture was created by the Earthwize Environmental Group to supply South African horticulturalists and the local mushroom industry with raw sphagnum peat – the partially decomposed residue of sphagnum moss species found in bogs – which Earthwize initially used for pollution control purposes.Earthwize director Dave Marock told SAinfo this week that his company initially imported sphagnum peat that it then dried under a patented process that prevents the cell structure from being damaged, enabling the peat to repel water and absorb hydrocarbon pollutants instead.“Horticulture clients became aware that we had raw sphagnum peat, which prior to processing absorbs water and is good for horticulture,” he said. “This then led to a new division being formed, called Echo Horticulture.”According to Echo Horticulture’s website, peat moss plays an important role in all aspects of horticulture, including plant propagation, floriculture, vegetable and nursery stock production, and home gardening.Marock said that buyer interest in the peat led the company to look for suppliers of wet dug black peat, of which there are only three suppliers worldwide – Harte Peat being one of them.“The local bogs also closed down and the mushroom industry switched to imported casing, of which we became a supplier with the Harte Peat range,” Marock said.According to Monaghan, Ireland based Harte Peat, its casing soil is a blend of types of peat and limestone flour or spent sugar beet lime, depending on the type of growing system used. Wet dug black peat, which is being imported for use by the local industry, consists of well-decomposed sphagnum moss matter from the bottom of the bog, has a moisture content of 90% and tends to be sticky in nature.Depending on the type of casing soil used, mushrooms can then be grown in bags, trays, blocks or shelves.“We initially targeted 20% to 25% of the market,” Marock said. “However the quality is so good that we have adjusted our sights and believe that we can achieve at least 35% of the SA market and maybe more.”SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Bafana draw with Reggae Boyz

first_img18 November 2009Bafana Bafana followed up their goalless draw against Japan on the weekend with another nil-all result against Jamaica in Bloemfontein on Tuesday night. Striker Benni McCarthy might be back in the Bafana fold, but the ball is not yet finding the back of the net.There was optimism that the South African national team might be reinvigorated and on the way up after a committed performance against the Japanese in Carlos Parreira’s first game back as coach, but the display against the Reggae Boyz lacked the passion of the showing in Port Elizabeth.While South Africa held onto the ball well, they lacked penetration, and a more direct approach was called for at times.‘These two games were vital’“These two games were vital to bring back the confidence, and I was happy with the way we played in the first half,” Parreira said after the game.“We had three or four good opportunities in the first half, and then in the second half there were too many replacements from Jamaica, and that disrupted the rhythm of the game.”Truth be told, it was not much of a surprise that the contest ended in a goalless draw.Lack of goalsIn their last five games leading into Tuesday evening’s clash, Jamaica had scored only two goals and conceded two, resulting in two wins, one draw and two losses.South Africa, in their previous five matches, had scored only one goal in a 1-0 win over Madagascar, lost 1-0 to Ireland, 1-0 to Norway, and 1-0 to Iceland before the goalless draw against Japan.Add it all up and you get only eight goals scored in 10 matches, with Bafana Bafana and the Reggae Boyz scoring only three of those; the warning signs that it would be a nil-nil draw were clear.Confident startOn a cold night in Bloemfontein, South Africa started more confidently than the Jamaicans, moving the ball around nicely. An early opportunity was created for Katlego Mphela, but his shot flew wide of the mark.Retaining possession well, Bafana controlled the midfield and some good work between McCarthy and Mphela nearly found a way through the visitors’ defences, but Dwayne Miller in the Jamaican goal knocked the ball behind for a corner.South Africa were dominating play, but Jamaica came extremely close to taking the lead on the counter-attack. Jason Morrison made a great run and beat goalkeeper Rowen Fernandez, but SA skipper Aaron Mokoena saved the day with a clearance off the goalline.McCarthy tested Miller a short while later with a well-struck free-kick, but the goalkeeper deflected the speeding ball wide of the post.Second halfAfter the break, Jamaica gained more parity in midfield, although Bafana slowly exerted their dominance in that area again as the game progressed.A free-kick by Spihiwe Tshabalala failed to find the target, but Kagisho Dikgacoi drew oohs and aahs out of the crowd when he pulled the trigger from distance and his shot passed just over the crossbar.Jamaica had an opportunity to take a late lead when Omar Cummings got onto the end of a cross, but his header from right in front went over the crossbar.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

People from afar come particularly for these caches. All of his caches are very family friendly, inspiring, and even include fallback stages if any of the flashing, buzzing or moving electronic gadgets fails. All of his main multi and mystery caches are among the best most of us will ever see in the life as a geocacher. He must have put countless hours into planning, constructing, placing, and maintaining his stages.It is hard to describe the inner beauty of any of them without spoiling any of it. There is a multi cache about knights and dragons, there is one on aliens and his newest most perfect installment is about a mysterious white woman. All of them are set outside the city and make great walk through the woods and fields of the area. All of his multis have more than half a dozen stages each and keep you busy for 3 to 6 hours depending on your skill in finding and figuring out the ingenious gimmicks he throws at you. I am not particularly good at praising people, but his caches are the reason why this hobby is so popular. His caches are worth a lot more than a 100 lamp post caches. I think this should be recognized.” Rat & MushroomRat & Mushroom Nominees for Geocacher of the MonthSamantha Holt says, “This is my mom and dad, they are both 63 years old. They have been caching for 9 years and have involved our whole family to include the grand kids. Dad lost a significant amount of his hearing about the time they started to cache. Caching has allowed them to continue to be very active and involved with the community and their friends.  They love to place ammo cans and unique cache hides. They have held several events to include a sweet-heart event during February. They have cached the states and several countries, to include Spain, Mexico, Gibraltar, Jamaica, Panama, Costa Rica, and  Germany. No matter where dad goes he can find a cache! He has taught many people how to cache and how to be a good cacher. Their license plate reads FIGS SL – Found in Good Shape, Signed Log. They have hiked, biked, canoed, drove, walked, crawled, boated, swam, quad-ed, jeeped, rock climbed, and waded through who  knows what to get to caches.   Rat & Mushroom deserve this award for their love of the adventure and their joy of sharing the caching experience with their close friends and family and whoever else walks up and asks them, “What are you looking for?” They are great people, I love you mom and dad!
