Lamont blasts Lothian’s JTTA administration

first_img But Lothian refutes the claim and stated that Lamont’s players are given free entry to tournaments, and that players are usually paid for their winnings, albeit sometimes late. “If I didn’t pay for tournaments, don’t you think Jamaica would be talking about that? We pay them over time, because some tournaments are not sponsored, but it’s not true that we do not pay for tournaments. He (Lamont) is trying to drive away sponsors and trying to destroy the sport and I will not allow it to happen,” Lothian insisted. Lamont’s is also not impressed by the governing body’s youth-development policies. Lothian countered that youth development is alive and growing and that with his track record, he expects to be elected for his third straight term at next month’s AGM. “If you are taking about youth development, we just finished a pre-cadet tournament in August … and Jamaica has received the bid to host the tournament again in August of this year, and we have gone all over the country with youth development and development of coaches. “The fact speaks for itself. No other administration in the 71-year history has done the amount of work we have done. So put all the other presidents together and none have achieved what I have,” he added. LOTHIAN REFUTES CLAIMS With the annual general meeting (AGM) of the Jamaica Table Tennis Association (JTTA) scheduled for next month, current president Godfrey Lothian is confident that his tenure will earn him a third successive term. However, former JTTA vice-president and national player, Samuel Lamont, who has been one of the biggest detractors of the Lothian administration, revealed that he has receive numerous calls to ‘save’ local table tennis, however, he said he is still yet to decide. “I have some serious problems with the Godfrey Lothian administration, and a lot of persons have been asking me to rescue table tennis. I have been getting a lot of requests, but I am not sure,” Lamont said. “If I am going to contest it, I will not make too many people know as yet, but the reason why I would do it is to rescue table tennis. As a person who has invested their hard cash in the sport, I am thinking about it seriously,” he told The Gleaner. Lamont’s main issues with the Lothian administration is its refusal to pay prize monies for tournaments and the lack of youth-development programmes in the country. “Mr Lothian’s is the only administration that has had tournaments and don’t pay players. It is a criminal offence to have tournaments and not pay the winners,” he said. “It cost $600-$700,000 (for Portland parish) to go to the national championship and the prize money is supposed to be declared, and some were not declared and this is the first this has happen. Before Mr Lothian (administration), the prize money was usually declared,” he reasoned.last_img read more

Cannot fool all of the people all of the time

first_imgDear Editor,Minister of Natural Resources, Raphael Trotman, is reported by sections of the media on April 26, 2018 to have told the workers of Rusal: “The good news, however, is that the US reduced the sanction on RUSAL after realising that it will also affect thousands of workers, such as the 500 working in Region 10”.It seems that Minister Trotman is seeking to outshine his colleague, Minister Ramjattan, who is known to regularly put his foot in his mouth.To say that the US Government was not aware of the thousands of workers employed by Rusal prior to its imposition of sanctions is downright laughable. Certainly, a well-endowed nation as the United States would be aware of the ramifications of its sanctions prior to its imposition. It is because of the harshness of those consequences that sanctions were pursued by the Trump Administration in the first place.Based on several reported instances, it is my view that the re-looking at the sanctions by the US Government has nothing to do with its empathy for Rusal’s workers, whether in Guyana or elsewhere; but has more to do with implications for US businesses.As former US President Abraham Lincoln famously said: “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”Yours faithfully,Patricia Persaudlast_img read more

NGO donates $40M in medical supplies, equipment to Public Health Ministry

first_imgBy Rennella BourneHope for the Nation Foundation, a new local Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), on Thursday donatedThe medical supplies and equipment to the Public Health Ministry$40 million in medical supplies and equipment to the Public Health Ministry.Minister within the Public Health Ministry, Dr Karen Cummings, expressed her gratitude to the NGO for its generous donation to the health sector, and noted the supplies and equipment would definitely go a long way.The handing-over ceremony was done at the Ministry’s bond at Diamond, East Coast Demerara.According to Cummings, “continuously improving the quality of healthcare services nationally is a task which cannot be undertaken solely by the Government of Guyana. As such, we welcome the support provided by partners such as the Hope for the Nation Foundation.”Among the items donated were beds, support rails, nasoenteric feeding tubes, syringes, paediatric manual resuscitators, commodes and fluid dispensing connectors.“The Ministry of Public Health, under the current Administration, is committed to ensuring that health needs of all its citizens are met. The Guyana Government is eternally grateful for your support and we at the Ministry of Public Health are very enthusiastic about this donation,” Dr Cummings said.She applauded Hope for the Nation Foundation for the efforts towards developing the health sector in Guyana. “I am pleased that the Foundation’s main areas that they choose to focus on are promoting health and fighting diseases.”The Foundation President, Dr Abdel Bari related his optimism to work with the health and other social sectors of Guyana.Dr Bari disclosed that the idea to do something for Guyana was long in mind, but “about a year and something, specifically in May, we had some Guyanese come from North America. Guyanese who came during the [Independence] celebration were met and the idea was finalised of doing something for Guyana here”.He continued: “We get together with the guys from Cross International which is the largest donor foundation in North America. Basic areas that they are willing to work on are the needy, the less fortunate, medical, help of the poor and the disadvantage for women and children.”According to Dr Bari, they had done some research and found Guyana to be one of the top countries which should be receiving help from Cross International. As such, the Hope for the Nation Foundation was formed.The objective of the Foundation is to work with Government and other NGOs along with religious bodies, women’s organisations, organisations for the differently abled and the educational system.It is also aiming to help Amerindian villages. “We plan to take to the Amerindian villages, tarpaulin and shovels also basic things that they can use which would enable them to be independent. The scope is very big for Hope for the Nation Foundation,” Dr Bari said.Public Health Ministry Deputy Permanent Secretary Colette Adams, noted, “The Hope Foundation is one of the many foundations that have stepped forward and assisted us and we are grateful to them for their assistance.”last_img read more

Union drops lawsuit against Daily News

first_imgThe union representing most Department of Water and Power workers has dropped its lawsuit against the Daily News over publishing employees’ names, positions and salaries online and has agreed to pay $17,213 in attorney fees and costs. The settlement between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 18, and the Daily News Publishing Company was reached Monday. The union filed in court Nov. 15 to have its lawsuit dismissed. The union representing nearly 8,500 DWP workers twice failed in Superior Court to persuade a judge to bar the newspaper from continuing to post workers’ salary information obtained under the California Public Records Act. In rejecting the union’s claims, Superior Court Judge Dzintra Janavs said Nov. 1 that the union had failed to show either a need to exempt all employees’ salaries from disclosure or to identify and show a need to exempt particular groups’ information from disclosure. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsThe Daily News reported earlier this year that DWP employees’ salaries average $76,949 a year or nearly 20percent more than the average Los Angeles municipal worker. Two years ago, IBEW Local 18 won a five-year contract guaranteeing worker raises of 16.8percent – and up to 28percent, depending on inflation. That contract helped drive a recent five-year contract with raises of about 23percent for most of the city’s 22,000 municipal workers. The Daily News first posted the DWP workers’ salary information online Sept. 30 at www.dailynews.com. The California Supreme Court recently upheld that such information is not exempt from disclosure under the California Public Records Act and that disclosure does not constitute an “unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.” “The fact that the union dismissed its lawsuit says that they recognized it didn’t have any merit,” said James Chadwick, a media and entertainment-industry attorney representing the Daily News. The union’s agreement to pay $17,213 in fees and costs settled a lawsuit by the newspaper that alleged that the union’s action was a SLAPP case – a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation, intended to prevent citizens from exercising their political rights or to punish those who have done so. “The California anti-SLAPP (statute) is designed for just this purpose, to make sure that when you’re sued in a meritless lawsuit you’re not forced to bear the costs. That’s why we filed an anti-SLAPP to dismiss the lawsuit, and that’s why they’re agreeing to pay our fees,” Chadwick said. Robert Dohrmann, the attorney representing the union, did not return calls Thursday. Brian D’Arcy, IBEW Local 18’s business manager, also did not return calls for comment. D’Arcy – who was paid $248,435 out of the nearly $6.5million in membership dues and assessments collected in 2006, according to IRS records – has been the driving political force behind the union, which historically has won some of the most lucrative contracts in the city. beth.barrett@dailynews.com 818-713-3731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
