… Jordan criticises workers as inept, lethargicPublic servants waited with bated breath for more than three hours on Monday to hear if Government would announce a month tax-free bonus but were instead treated to a tongue lashing by Finance Minister Winston Jordan, who in addition to announcing marginal adjustments to the taxes paid by workers, lashed out at the public service, calling it lethargic and inept.Finance Minister Winston JordanHe later told reporters that Government simply did not have the monies available to make the one month tax-free payment to members of the public service.Speaking to public administration and public financial management during his presentation of the 2017 National Estimates (Budget) on Monday, Finance Minister Jordan said “this Administration has inherited a national crisis of institutional lethargy and ineptitude (in the public service).”Expanding on his position, the Minister told the House that all across the Public Sector, we are faced with issues of sluggishness in implementation, poor inter-agency coordination and cooperation, and a deficit of strategic planning and management.According to Jordan, the coalition A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government is “perturbed by this situation, as it is a daunting indication of the effort that needs to be invested in ensuring that public services of the highest quality are delivered to the Guyanese people.”Describing the situation as a “malaise”, Minster Jordan said the task at hand will be tackled frontally.The Minister in providing some insight on Government’s proposal to reform the public service through its public servants, pointed to comprehensive institutionalisation of the tenets of results-based management.He pointed too to the recently opened public service college and its role in revitalising workers.According to the Finance Minister, it is “to ensure that our public servants, at all levels of Government, are better equipped to develop and execute our vision and plans, the recently-opened Bertram Collins College of the Public Service will provide for a wide range of training in public administration and related fields.”Despite voting against the Opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic’s demands to have the report of the Commission of Inquiry into the public service addressed at the level of a Parliamentary Select Committee, Jordan said, its findings will be utilised to arrest the attrition of qualified public servants.No bonusMeanwhile, on the matter of the expected increases, the Minister instead said Government will continue to engage the Unions in negotiations to find common ground to issues pertaining to wage and salary adjustment, de-bunching and allowances, taking into consideration the state of the economy and our desire to maintain macroeconomic stability.He subsequently told reporters that the payment of the one month tax-free bonus for all public servants was unlikely since the money was not available.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo this past week had called for Government to make the one month tax-free bonus payment to all public servants and pointed to the $8 billion that was transferred from the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) to the Consolidated Fund that could be used to finance the payments.According to Jordan, however, “We’d love to, once we could find money to do bonus.”He said, “I think what happened this year is that we paid a slightly bigger salary than last year overall and also I think we took on some more numbers… I think the security service, in a sense, took away what we could have had.”Minister Jordan told reporters “we are still looking but at this stage, it is a very slim possibility… Up to last night (Sunday), when we were doing numbers, I was hoping to find something; but, like I said, we took on a few people in the security sector and their bill has to be added up.”Jordan earlier in the evening drew reference to the one to 10 per cent salary increase that had been paid to workers last month.
With the third period opening with a tie score of 2-2, a two goal period from the Trackers, compared to just a lone goal produced by Grande Prairie, was enough to propel the Trackers to a 4-3 victory.Cody McManus scored on the power-play just 3:13 into the third to provide the Trackers with the 3-2 lead, which was doubled when Kohlman Brinsky netted his first of the weekend, 12:15 into the final frame. Grande Prairie managed to score another goal in the final five minutes of the game, but were unable to slip the game-tying goal past goaltender Michael Chute, who made 42 saves in the win. With the 1-1-0 weekend, the Trackers now sit fourth in the NAMHL’s North Black Division, with a record of 4-6-0 for 8 points.Next on the schedule for the NE B.C. & Yukon Trackers are back-to-back home games against the Edge Maroon. Game one of the double-header takes place in Dawson Creek Friday, November 16 at 7 p.m., followed by an afternoon game Saturday, November 17 in Fort St John, taking place at the Pomeroy Sport Centre at 3 p.m. The tie game lasted until there was almost six minutes left in the third period. At 13:53, the Barons slipped the game-winning goal past Trackers goaltender Logan Edwards, concluding the game with a final score of 5-4.Following a day of rest, the Trackers were back on the ice Sunday in Grande Prairie, for an afternoon tilt with the Sherpa Safety Storm, a game they emerged victorious in by a score of 4-3.Much like Friday’s game, Sunday’s saw the Trackers trail 1-0 early, as Grande Prairie scored 6:26 into the first period. Roughly four minutes later, the Trackers evened the score at 1-1, as Thomas Webster netted his first of the weekend. The tie didn’t last very long, with Grande Prairie scoring the go-ahead goal with 3:12 remaining in the first, wrapping up the opening frame with the Trackers trailing 2-1.The second period proved to be a productive one for the Trackers, who evening the score at 2-2 thanks to a power-play goal from Trevor Whynot, with the lone second period goal coming at 10:45.Advertisement The weekend games began Friday evening with the Trackers hosting the Barons in Dawson Creek. The Barons were the first team to crack the scoreboard, as Fort McMurray scored only 2:10 into the game.However, the Trackers were unphased by early deficit, as they tracked down two first-period goals of there own, with Wyatt Gale scoring a power-play marker at 5:05 to tie the game at 1-1, followed by a goal from Deon Leer at 10:19, concluding the first period leading 2-1.It didn’t take long for the Barons to even the score in the second, as the visiting team scored only 1:08 to tie the game at 2-2, then retook the lead 3-2 with their second power-play goal of the evening at 6:52. – Advertisement -Much like the first period, the one goal deficit seemed to motivate the Trackers, who evened the score at 3-3 at the 15:38 marker of the second, with the tying goal coming off the stick of Mark Readman.Unfortunately, the tie game didn’t last for the hometown Trackers, who allowed a goal with just 10 seconds remaining in the second, with the middle frame concluding with a score of 4-3 in favour of the Barons.Friday’s theme continued in the third, as Fort St. John once again fought back to even the score at 4-4, as Wyatt Gale scored his second of the evening 5:29 into the third.Advertisement

Expect anything less? The Patriots don’t. The Patriots remained one of the NFL’s four unbeaten teams Monday night – and, so far, the best of the bunch – by beating the Cincinnati Bengals, 34-13, with a performance that showed their versatility. They’ve only just begun. “I think we’re doing more as an offense,” said Morris, who ran for 117 yards – the second-best total of his career – and a touchdown. “We just want to keep it going.” New England (4-0) is off to its best start since 2004, when it won the Super Bowl for the third time in four years. An offense energized by the addition of receivers Randy Moss, Donte’ Stallworth and Wes Welker showed it can grind it out, too. NFL: QB throws for three TDs and Morris rushes for 117 yards in rout of the Bengals. By Joe Kay THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CINCINNATI – Tom Brady had three more touchdown passes. Sammy Morris had one of his best games. The New England defense had its way. Especially against a team like the Bengals (1-3), who had trouble just getting a defense on the field – and counting to 11 while they were at it. Cincinnati’s performance was so maddening, Coach Marvin Lewis screamed at his players in the locker room for several minutes. “If you don’t want to be on this team, please don’t show up!” Lewis yelled, so loud reporters outside could hear. “You don’t call the offense; you don’t call the plays. You just play. “Nowhere in the NFL do guys act like this. We’ve got to figure this out.” There was plenty to get him screaming mad. Cincinnati was missing middle linebackers Ahmad Brooks and Caleb Miller, leaving a big hole in one of the league’s worst defenses. When Lemar Marshall hurt an Achilles’ tendon in the first quarter, the Bengals moved rookie safety Chinedum Ndukwe into a linebacker spot. It was an invitation to run the ball right through the middle of the defense – which is exactly what the Patriots did. “We go into the game and see what’s working,” Morris said. “We were able to grind it out, so we kept at it.” The Patriots had more linebackers in their offense on goal-line plays than the Bengals had in their defense on many plays. And one of the Patriots – Mike Vrabel – caught a 1-yard touchdown pass in a Super Bowl flashback. Missing their top runner didn’t slow the Patriots. Morris, an eighth-year journeyman playing for his third team, got to take center stage because Laurence Maroney was out with a strained groin. He had the second 100-yard game of his career, including a 7-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-1 that put the Patriots in control in the third quarter. Morris’ 49-yard run – the second-longest of his career – set up Brady’s 1-yard touchdown pass to Vrabel, who has nine career catches, all for touchdowns. Two of them have come in the Patriots’ Super Bowl wins. Brady, the two-time Super Bowl MVP, didn’t have to do anything sensational against a depleted defense. He was 25 of 32 passing for 231 yards, including touchdown passes of 7 and 14 yards to Moss. Moss had nine catches for 102 yards. He’s the first player in NFL history to have 100 yards in receptions in each of his first four games with a new team. “He was a great player before he got here,” Brady said. “He’s still a great player. He adds a lot to this offense.” Brady has had many great moments for the Patriots, but has never been this good for this long. He leads the league with 13 touchdown passes, his best total in any four-game span of his career. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DONEGAL people are ranked amongst the lowest when it comes to weekly drinking habits, a survey has found.The survey of 20,000 people nationally for insurer Aviva Health Insurance found that Irish men spend almost €2,400 per year on alcohol.Irish women spend €1,607 per year on drink. Adults in Dublin and Louth drink the most alcohol, consuming an average of 12 units per week.The lowest level of drinking – at nine units per week – was found in here in Co Donegal as well as in Carlow, Kerry, Laois, Roscommon and Tipperary.The findings were based on the results of an online health check by Aviva Health Insurance, which was completed by over 20,000 people between December 2008 and April 2011. Respondents answered a range of questions on their health and lifestyle habits.According to Dr Stephen Murphy of the Aviva Medical Council, people living and working in Ireland ‘have a tendency towards a work hard, play hard lifestyle’. “Often drinking is used as a way to unwind after a busy week or to forget about the troubles of the day. This is worrying behaviour, particularly as people tend to under-report their alcohol consumption and may be unaware that drinking has been linked to breast, liver and oral cancers,” Dr Murphy commented.A previous survey ranked the Irish as the number one binge drinkers in the EU.Dr Murphy added: “If you drink alcohol, be sure to do so in moderation as consuming too much can result in serious health consequences and could increase your risk for heart disease, diabetes and cancer.”DONEGAL PEOPLE AMONGST LOWEST IN ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION – SURVEY was last modified: April 26th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:alcoholAvivadrinksurvey
A man severed the artery of a Garda Sergeant after a row erupted because he claimed his daughter was mistreated at a nightclub.Carpenter John Boyle attacked the Garda and four bouncers outside Voodoo Nightclub in Letterkenny.Medics had to rush to save Sgt Aidan Doherty after he was attacked with a replica Stanley knife. Letterkenny Circuit Court heard today how blood squirted for up to a metre every time medics took bandages from Sgt Doherty’s arm.He was eventually operated on but the Garda will have a permanent scar on his arm.Details of the savage attack, which happened on August 14th, 2011, were read out in court.After an altercation with bouncers Boyle was removed from a queue and taken to one side.However Boyle, 47, who was charged with four counts of assault causing harm and two of making threats to kill, flipped and stabbed five people.Boyle stabbed Sgt Doherty in the leg and told him “I know where you F****** live and I’ll kill you.”He also said to bouncer after stabbing him in the leg “You’ll remember that the next time.”Three other bouncers noticed later they also all had stab wounds.Boyle, of 14 Leck Cottages, Letterkenny, said he had received a call from his daughter to say she had not been given change from €50 after she bought a drink.When she complained she was removed from the premises and was allegedly told that the club did not want her kind in it.She telephoned her father and he went to meet her and took the knife from her which she had in her handbag.He claimed he went to explain this to the bouncers and things got out of control.Barrister Peter Nolan said Boyle was a hard-worker who was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth.He was a settled traveller who had a very difficult upbringing.Judge John O’Hagan said the fact that he is a settled traveller will not influence him in any way.He said whatever was said to him was not an excuse for him to do what he did on the night.Judge John O’Hagan said he did not bring the knife to the nightclub to cut his nails or to cut carpet in the nightclub.Judge O’Hagan said “I have a duty to the public and to members of An Garda Siochana that Mr Boyle will not do this again.“I can’t be seen to be giving people sweets in the light of severity of this assault.“It cries out for a custodial sentence. I don’t like doing this but it has to happen. Be he 47 or 18 under no circumstances will weapons or any other instruments be produced. It will not happen on my watch,” he said.He sentenced Boyle to two years in prison for all six counts and suspended the last six months.MAN WHO STABBED GARDA AND BOUNCERS JAILED FOR TWO YEARS was last modified: November 5th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GardaiJohn BoyleJUdge John O’HaganstabVOODOO
