We wish the team all the best in their inaugural season in the WPSL and we look forward to watching some exciting soccer on the pitch!”For his part, women’s team head coach, Charlie Flowe, said: “I speak for all of us from the women’s team and we are truly thankful to Cypher Language Services for being our first-ever title sponsor.

– operators bemoan road conditionsFollowing failed promises by the Public Infrastructure Ministry to repair the East Bank Berbice (EBB) main access road, the Hire Car Association has increased their fares by more than 40 per cent.The president of the EBB Hire Car Association, Maxwell Semple, explained to the Guyana Times that the members are fed-up of promises; as such the cost for short drops will now be $200, as opposed to the previously charged of $140.Vehicles struggling to traverse the East Bank Berbice main access road at EvertonHe said, “Government don’t have any vehicle on this road to help the people, is only we the private owners and the association has taken a decision to carry the fair to $200 or to withdraw our service.”On February 10, Laison Officer of the Public Infrastructure Ministry, Nelson McKenzie, met with residents of the community and promised that remedial work on the road would have commenced within a 72-hour period, to date, nothing has happened.One hire car operator, Andrew France told Guyana Times that McKenzie is not the only one to have fooled the community.He said when President David Granger visited the community one-year ago to hand over a school bus, he also promised to have the road fixed.According to France, when the Head of State visited, the surface of the road was levelled as a result of works which were done hours before the President’s arrival. France added that the state of the road has worsened.Meanwhile, David G5 which plies that route has been out of service, reportedly owing to the poor road conditions. Meanwhile, McKenzie had earlier promised that a section of the road will be rebuilt with funds from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). That project is expected to commence in March. According to Mackenzie, the issue with the road was inherited and there is a process that has to be followed to carry out the project. The IDB has already given the green light to execute the project.

The Donegal-owned Maple Group has announced more plans to expand, just twelve months after the opening of the first re-branded Maple store.The Maple Group now has six convenience stores and five with forecourts located throughout rural communities in Donegal.Brian Murphy, General Manager of the Maple Group said: “We are delighted with the news this week that we have secured planning permission for a new store. This will enable us to continue the expansion of our Maple brand across Donegal and as new locations are secured, we will be making further announcements.” Brian continued: “We at Maple Group are blown away with the positive feedback from our customers. Our aim was to have independent purchasing ability, so our customers would not only benefit from great value products, we would also give a platform to small artisan producers in the county to sell their produce.“Unlike other symbol groups our independence means we can tailor our stores to local needs while supporting local suppliers such as Cois Farraige Bakery in Bunbeg, Kinnegar Brewery, a craft beer company based in Letterkenny, L.A.N. Teo an organic farm based in Falcarragh to name but a few.” “And over the coming months we are hoping to expand upon this as more local producers come on board. We are continuing to build on our quality; with fresh food being the focus in all our stores. And partnering with Circle K and Donegal Oil Company has given us the ability to remain competitive in our five forecourts,” said Brian.Maple Group stores are located in Milford, Carrigart, Castlefinn, Burtonport, Falcarragh and Derrybeg.The ethos behind the new brand will lead in the coming months to the advanced planning initiative for a, “Produced in Donegal for Maple” symbol. This will clearly show customers when they are truly buying local.Ann Foy, Mary McGlynn, Emma Bogan, Larry Doherty, Pearl DohertySpeaking on behalf of the group, managing director, Arthur McMahon commented, “We are absolutely thrilled to announce that in just a short twelve month period our plans to expand our brand to further locations throughout Donegal are well underway. We currently employ 60 people from the local areas and hope that we can double that within the next two years.”The Maple “Community Fund Project” was launched in their Derrybeg store earlier this year, another initiative enabling local charities & groups to avail of additional funding. This initiative was set up so Maple could give back to their local communities in appreciation of their custom. It will be rolled out in all six locations before the end of the year.Maple Group have helped raise over €50,000 for local and national charitable organisations within the past year. The Stores will continue to offer their premises to assist and help local & national fundraising campaigns.In all locations the expansion plans are welcomed by their customers and staff, who have supported the fact that Maple are local and independent and community focussed. The dedicated and friendly managers and staff would like to take this opportunity to thank their customers for supporting their local Maple and Maple Express Store and for all their business over the past year.

WASHINGTON – Before ending a historic term, the Supreme Court must resolve some potential blockbuster cases involving the president’s wartime powers, capital punishment and political boundaries in Texas. Much attention this term has focused on the two newest justices – John Roberts and Samuel Alito – and on signs of a possible shift to the right on the nine-member court. With a late June deadline looming, the high court has yet to issue opinions in about 35 cases in which justices have heard arguments. At this point a year ago, the court had the same number of cases pending, a sign the justices’ pace has changed little with the arrival of Roberts, who succeeded the late William H. Rehnquist as chief justice. Some headline-grabbing cases are over: a test of Oregon’s physician-assisted suicide law, a constitutional challenge to state abortion restrictions and model-reality television star Anna Nicole Smith’s fight for a piece of her late husband’s estate. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsStill to be decided are cases involving President George W. Bush’s power to order military trials for suspected foreign terrorists held at the Navy prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and an appeal that will decide when Death Row inmates should get a new chance to prove their innocence with DNA and other evidence. In addition, the justices are delving into politics. At issue in one case is whether the court should throw out all or part of a Texas congressional map promoted by former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas. A free-speech case asks whether states can limit how much money is spent in political campaigns. Much talk among court observers, however, concerns the justices’ personalities. “The real mark of this term is not the issues,” said Richard Garnett, a Notre Dame law professor and former court clerk. “Apart from what happens in the big-ticket cases in June, we have a new chief justice for the first time in nearly 20 years and the justices changed seats for the first time in a decade.” Roberts, then 50, took the oath on the first day of the court’s term in October, becoming the youngest chief justice in two centuries. Rehnquist died in September at age 80. In late January, Samuel Alito won Senate confirmation to replace Sandra Day O’Connor after the failed nomination of White House counsel Harriet Miers. Alito’s style is reserved, the opposite of O’Connor, a moderate justice appointed by Ronald Reagan. “Everybody is most interested in where they are going to be on cutting edge, hot-button issues,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, a Duke Law School professor who often argues before justices. For now, he added, “There aren’t many cases that are going to give us a read on the two new justices.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A man who sexually assaulted a ten-year-old girl has appeared before Carndonagh District Court. Judge Paul Kelly heard how a schoolgirl and her ten-year-old friend were in a charity shop in the peninsula when the defendant approached them and rammed his tongue down the victim’s throat. The man – who cannot be named because of a court order – pleaded guilty to the sexual assault charge dating back to August, 2016.Inspector Shaun Grant told Judge Kelly: “While they were in the shop a male began talking to her. He had his arm round her and began kissing her. She pulled away.”The court heard how the defendant then proceeded to stick his tongue down her mouth.When she tried to leave he followed her.In the girl’s statement – which was read out in court, she said: “I just remember he just came really close and started kissing me and then he wouldn’t leave me alone. I walked out and he followed. He then said ‘do you want to come back to my house and start kissing’.The victim returned home and told her 15-year-old brother, and mother. They then made the complaint to the Gardai.The defendant’s defence solicitor, Mr Gillespie, said his client wished to apologise to the complainant and the complainant’s mother.He said: “It is a matter that has caused profound embarrassment and has been a turning point in his life.“He is 57-years-old and is a bachelor living in his family home. He is unable to read or write and has a number of health problems. He also has a mental health matter.”He said he has had ‘some difficulty’ in dealing with the death of his mother.“He has assured me there would be no repeat of this,” he told Judge Kelly.Mr Gillespie said his client was socially awkward and tends to ‘keep to himself’.A letter was handed up to Judge Kelly from the man’s GP.The victim and her mother did not attend the court.Judge Kelly said that given the circumstances and the medical report he had received, he would seek intervention from the probation services. The matter was adjourned until July for a probation report.Ten-year-old girl sexually assaulted while shopping for toys was last modified: April 25th, 2018 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)
Inishowen Engineering Reserve Premier Division Reports 27/01/2013Glengad Res 1-3 Culdaff ResPlayed in wet and windy conditions the home side with the advantage of the elements began well with Michael Gallagher firing narrowly wide from twelve yards.They were unlucky on 14 minutes when a Gary Kelly header from a corner was cleared off the line by Culdaffs Peter Doherty.Culdaff came more into the game as the half wore on with Conor O Brien racing onto a ball over the top only to see his attempted chip brilliantly saved by Michael McLaughlin.They took the lead before the interval when a William Hutchinson effort from the edge of the area was deflected past McLaughlin. Culdaff got a dream start to the second period when they increased their lead on 55 minutes after Barry Fitzpatrick cut inside two defenders before firing low to the bottom corner from twenty yards.The home side hit back within minutes and reduced the deficit when Daniel Mullarkey’s free found Seamus Doherty unmarked and he headed to the roof of the net.Glengad were on top at this stage and Michael Doherty headed just over before Kelly controlled a Stephen Doherty cross but fired straight at George Houten.Culdaff regained the initiative and on 83 minutes O Brien had a header well tipped over by McLaughlin.Minutes later Terence McLaughlin fed O Brien and he fired a superb twenty yards effort to the top corner to seal the points. Aileach Res 1-2 Carn ResCarn Reserves caused the biggest upset of the season when they travelled to Aileach and defeated the home side two weeks after suffering an eight two defeat at home.There was little in the game in the opening half an hour but the visitors then took the lead when Conor Doherty’s cross was headed home by the unmarked Brendan Tabb. Before the break the home side replied and Eddie McGrath found space in the area but fired straight at JJ Doherty in the Carn goal.Aileach had the frirst chance of the second half when McGrath ran clear of the visitors defence but with only Doherty to beat he fired wide.At the other end Conor Doherty was also just wide before a quick free by the visitors sent Niall McLaughlin clear to fire low past David McGeady from fifteen yards.Aileach got a consolation with five minutes to go when substitute Stephen Doherty fired a superb shot in off the underside of the bar from the edge of the area. Clonmany Res 3-0 Sea RoversThis match was switched to Saturday afternoon,and Clonmany dominated the first half.They took the lead on 11minutes when Kevin McCarron’s corner kick found Patrick Harkin at the back post.Patrick’s header crashed back of the crossbar and Clonmany right-back Dean Kelly was first to react,volleying the rebound to the net from six yards out,giving Sea Rover’s keeper Fergal Bradley no chance.Clonmany almost added a second on 13minutess when Kevin McCarron cut into the box from the left wing and drove in a powerful shot which came back of Bradley’s left hand post,with the ball coming out to Clonmany’s Aidan Doherty 12yards out,but Sea Rover’s Paddy Logue was able to block his shot.Sea Rovers almost equalised on 16minutess when they launched a counter-attack and capitalising on a weak clearance Gerard Crossan broke clear.But Clonmany centre-half Martin Kelly made a superb last-ditch tackle to thwart him.Clonmany struck the woodwork for a third time on 18minutes when Jonathan McDaid’s dangerous cross from wide on the right flank came back off the crossbar,with Fergal Bradley scrambling,but the ball was cleared to safety.Clonmany finally got the second goal their play deserved when Alan Friel played a perfectly weighted pass through to find Patrick Harkin’s run and he slotted low past Fergal Bradley to find the bottom corner of the net.The woodwork again denied Clonmany on 26minutess after Jonathan McDaid’s through ball found another Patrick Harkin run, but this time he was forced out wide by Fergal Bradley and his shot from a narrow angle came back of the angle of post and crossbar and was cleared to safety.Clonmany made it three nil on 40minutes when Brian Devlin’s cross from wide on the left found Aidan Doherty in front of goals and he slotted home.The weather deteriorated during half-time and that and both teams making a string of substitutions were factors in making the second half less open with few real goalscoring opportunities.On 71minutess a cross from the right wing by Clonmany’s Kevin McCarron found Aidan Doherty just inside the area but his volley just cleared the bar.Clonmany’s last chance to add to the score came on 82minutess when a corner from the right was recycled at the back post and Brian Devlin tried a shot from just outside the area but it was always rising.Sea Rovers almost grabbed a consolation on 89minutes when Gerard Crossan’s shot from the right of the area seemed to be goalbound only for Clonmany keeper Roger McGilloway to pull off a fine save.Inishowen Engineering Premier Reserve League top goal scorersGary Kelly Glengad Res 10 Aiden Lynch QPS Res 7Darragh McDermott Cockhill Res 6Stephen Doherty Aileach Res 6Niall McLaughlin Glengad Res 5 Paul Hegarty QPS Res 5INISHOWEN FOOTBALL: INISHOWEN ENGINEERING RESERVE PREMIER DIVISION REPORTS was last modified: January 27th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:aileachcarnclonmanycludaffculdaffGlengadINISHOWEN FOOTBALL: INISHOWEN ENGINEERING RESERVE PREMIER DIVISION REPORTSsea rovers
