first_imgRecognising that the levels of abuse are exceedingly high in hinterland areas, the Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) recently conducted a training exercise with parents to prevent child abuse.Director of CC&PA, Ann GreeneThe Agency said sessions were conducted in two communities within Region One (Barima-Waini) in collaboration with the Schools’ Welfare Department and other stakeholders.On the other hand, another session was facilitated in Agricola, Greater Georgetown. That training was conducted with support from Sol Guyana.CC&PA Director Ann Greene had previously said that there remained a gap between what the law required and the innate culture of some communities as she was speaking on the attempts of the Agency to address child sexual abuse in communities within the interior regions.“We have found that Region One [Barima-Waini] and Region Seven [Cuyuni-Mazaruni] would stand out in cases of sexual abuse against children. If we look at the particular regions, we have a gap between the law and the culture in those areas. That means that there’s the law that says sexual activity at age 16, but in some culture groups, there’s a younger age,” Greene told this newspaper in an invited comment.She said the law works for all children and that is what the Agency has been doing over time.In a similar instance, the CC&PA was able to rescue three young children from the home of their biological father in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo). And while the issue of the law versus culture speaks specifically to the abuse of children who may not be related to their abuser, Greene said the CC&PA has been receiving numerous reports of incestuous child sexual abuse cases.In that particular case, three children were rescued from an allegedly abusive home in Region Nine.They were subsequently brought to Georgetown. Medical examinations proved that the two girls have been sexually molested, but their male sibling was not. Additionally, a 14-year-old female sibling who had relocated earlier in the year was also examined and found to have been sexually abused.The children’s father was also brought to Georgetown to further assist with investigations. The four children remain in the State’s custody while their 49-year-old father is in Police custody.Acting on reports made by village leaders, including school teachers in Quarrie, a satellite community of St Ignatius Village in Region Nine, CC&PA officials on Monday took the children from the home in which they resided with their father and carried them to the Lethem Police Station in an effort to have that entity assist with investigations.last_img read more

first_img– cites lack of spaceEfforts by the Coalition Government to address the heavy rush-hour traffic situation on the East Bank of Demerara have been thwarted, forcing them to cancel the construction of a vehicular overpass at Diamond.In January, it was revealed that tenders for the construction of the overhead road structure were opened, while tenders for supervisory services were opened since in December 2016, and at time were being evaluated. However, Head of the Public Infrastructure Ministry’s Work Services Group, Geoffrey Vaughn, told Guyana Times on Friday that the process had to be aborted after the Group ran into a stumbling block about five months ago.He explained that the area which had been earmarked for the start of the overpass in the Diamond/Grove Housing Scheme was sold to the owner of a local fastfood chain, M&M – which had recently relocated further in the scheme (opposite G3 Building).“Space was a constraint at that time because M&M now takes up that land that we had proposed to use to carry the vehicle overpass from Diamond straight onto the East Bank Road. And we weren’t aware of that, because that was reserve all the time, and apparently it was sold,” he stated.WSG Head, Geoffrey VaughnVaughn added, too, that the Group hit further obstacles when they realised that the East Bank Public Road end of the overpass would have landed into the compound of the mandir which is located opposite the entrance of the scheme.According to the WSG Head, the Group was considering the viability of several other sites, but those options were not found to be feasible. Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson was quoted in an online media outlet – Newsroom – as saying that they are looking to build a second road into the scheme, with a proposed location in the vicinity of the Guyoil Gas Station.Nevertheless, Vaughn indicated to this newspaper they are also considering other locations along the East Bank that are maybe in need of a vehicle overpass.“We are looking to see if we get other areas which are in need of (an overpass). It may not be the same area. It’s not just doing it, we got to find areas that it is going to bring relief to people,” he pointed out.However, the WSG Head reminded of the bypass road, funded by the Indian Government and seeking to link the East Bank and East Coast of Demerara, noting that this second link will alleviate traffic congestion on the East Bank.“You will now be able to either use the existing East Bank road; or, if you going to the East Coast, you can use the new link – which will pass through Great Diamond going all the way through South (Ruimveldt) and getting us straight to Ogle, coming out at the Railway Embankment or main highway,” he said, while mentioning that consideration is also being given to extend the bypass road from Diamond to Timehri. “So you can actually come from Timehri and head all the way to the East Coast,” he noted.Vaughn further added that, with the bypass road, they are looking at strategic locations that may be in need of vehicle overpasses.However, he was quick to point out that these are all mere considerations, and not concrete proposals. The WSG Head explained that they were hoping that the vehicle overpass at the entrance of Diamond/Grove Housing Scheme would have been the model structure to determine whether other similar structures were viable on the country’s roadways.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Diego Maradona claimed Colombia only lost to England because of US referee Matt Geiger © AFP / BENJAMIN CREMELMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jul 5 – Diego Maradona has apologised for questioning the impartiality of the referee in charge of England’s last-16 penalty shootout win over Colombia.The Argentina legend had landed himself in hot water with FIFA over his outburst at US official Mark Geiger when he described England’s win on Tuesday as a “monumental robbery”. But after a firm rebuke by football’s governing body the 1986 World Cup winner issued a mea culpa on Instagram.“Caught up by the excitement and support for Colombia the other day, I said some things that, I admit, are unacceptable.“My apologies to FIFA and its president (Gianni Infantino): even if sometimes my opinions are different to those of the referees I have total respect for their work.”He admitted that “although I sometimes have opinions contrary to those of referees, I have absolute respect for the work — not easy — which (FIFA) and the referees do.”Maradona, who had come out in support of Colombia following Argentina’s premature elimination, blamed Geiger for the South American side’s loss in an ill-tempered affair.He had told Venezuelan TV channel Telesur: “I apologise to all the Colombian people, but the players are not to blame.“Here is a gentleman (FIFA referees boss Pierluigi Collina) who decides to choose a referee who, if he had Googled him, (he would know) can’t be used for a match of this magnitude.”Geiger was suspended from international football for six months after several controversial decisions during a 2015 Gold Cup semi-final between Panama and Mexico.Maradona had attended the Colombia v England match as a guest of FIFA and was pictured before the game in Moscow wearing a Colombia shirt.FIFA had responded, saying it was “extremely sorry” to read the comments from “a player who has written the history of our game”.It added: “Furthermore, it also considers the additional comments and insinuations made as being entirely inappropriate and completely unfounded.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Teen arrested in fake gun robbery WHITTIER – A 16-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of using a replica handgun to rob a local video store, officials said. WHITTIER – The family of Mireya Mendoza-Lares, who detectives said was fatally shot by her estranged husband, is trying to raise money for her funeral. They want to bury the 34-year-old in her hometown of Sinaloa, Mexico. Her only daughter, 14-year- old Susana Morales, said one of her aunts set up a bank account to accept donations for the funeral. Mendoza-Lares, who worked cleaning houses, died Saturday in the driveway of her home in the 11700 block of South Fidel Avenue. Her estranged husband, Cornelio Salazar, 59, allegedly shot her in the head then shot himself. The incident was reported about 8:30 p.m. at the Video Pavilion in the 10700 block of Beverly Boulevard, which also specializes in cell phones, said Whittier police Sgt. Carlos Solorza. The suspect, whose name was not released because of his age, entered the store and asked to look at a cell phone, Solorza said. The teen then allegedly grabbed the phone and ran for the door, with the shopkeeper chasing behind him, Solorza said. The suspect then allegedly pulled out a gun – later determined to be a replica – and threatened the shopkeeper. Officers set up a search perimeter, found the suspect hiding in a nearby park, and arrested him without further incident, he added. Program to focus on parenting teens MONTEBELLO – The public is invited to attend the Montebello and East Los Angeles Family Support Center’s open house from 6 to 7:45 p.m. today at the Montebello United Methodist Church, 1220 W.

Construction crews close lanes northbound and southbound on State Route 39 between Rosecrans Avenue and Imperial Highway. One lane will be kept open in each direction and there will be no weekend closures. Extensive wear has resulted from the heavy traffic on SR 39. The asphalt-grinding and concrete-overlay project will produce a smoother roadway, but Caltrans expects the grinding and paving work will be noisy.

first_img Abi arrived in Agoura Hills on May 5, a shy and sick 18-month-old. She hardly made a peep, Jamie Bachelis said. “I couldn’t tell if she didn’t feel well or if it was because she didn’t know anyone here,” she said. Eight days later, she was on an operating table, a surgeon’s blade sectioning out pieces of her heart and repairing a hole in it, a condition called a ventricle septal defect. A month later, a doctor implanted a pacemaker. As if that wasn’t enough, Abi also suffers from hip dysplasia and has been wearing a brace for five months to help improve her condition. After leaving the hospital, she was practically a brand new girl, singing and dancing, speaking both her native Spanish and a little English, and watching sports, Jamie Bachelis said. “Since the surgery, she has become a very happy child,” she said. “… I wish we didn’t have to give her up.” Abi arrived for her surgery thanks to the Two Marias fund, established in October 2004. Gibson donated $5 million to provide the hospital with reimbursement for medical care to children from foreign countries unable to afford care at home. To date, 27 children have come to UCLA through Two Marias. The fund pays for a patient’s medical expenses, but Healing the Children and the foster families take care of travel and day-to-day expenses, which average about $2,500 per child. To qualify for treatment, children must have serious medical conditions for which they are unable to be treated in their own countries. At UCLA, cardiology, neurology, optometry and cancer specialists have helped children from 1 to 18 years old. Gibson also donated another $5 million to Cedars Sinai Medical Center and has funded trips by medical teams to treat children in their own countries, said Chris Embleton, director and founder of Healing the Children. “He’s really saved the lives of hundreds of kids,” said Embleton, who founded the group 28 years ago after her adopted daughter died from an infection that started in her eye. The Bachelises helped Abi through some of the most difficult times she will ever face. “For Abi, it was really touch-and-go for a while,” she said. “Her heart problems were very complicated. Her foster family adores that child. Because of the love and care they gave to her, we now have a precious girl who has a bright future.” Eric Leach, (805) 583-7602 eric.leach@dailynews.com HOW TO HELP To contribute to the Two Marias International Children’s Fund or become a foster family, call Healing the Children at (661) 288-1957.

The Bachelises had a personal interest in getting involved. Their daughter, Sarah, now 13, was born with five heart defects and has undergone four successful surgeries at UCLA. Dr. Juan Alejos, associate professor of pediatric cardiology at Mattel, praised Abi and the family, calling them remarkable. “The Bachelises have done an extraordinary job getting her through very difficult surgeries,” he said. AGOURA HILLS – The Bachelis family took in a toddler named Abi so she could mend her heart, and now that they’re in love with her, she’s about to break theirs. Abi Vega Cruz came to Southern California from Quito, Ecuador, seven months ago to have a life-threatening heart defect repaired. The 2-year-old was born with a heart muscle so big it couldn’t pump properly. She underwent two surgeries at UCLA’s Mattel Children’s Hospital, paid for through a fund supported by actor Mel Gibson. Now, she’s a ball of energy who loves dressing up as a University of California, Los Angeles, cheerleader and watching her foster brother’s basketball games. She has recovered so well, in fact, that she will return home to Quito on Wednesday, just in time for Christmas. And while it’s been uplifting to watch her recover, it will be heart-rending to see her leave, said her volunteer foster mother, Jamie Bachelis. last_img read more
