“Fix It” changes plea to guilty

first_img…wounded man who refused to give him moneyOne day after Quincy Henry, called “Fix It”, denied he had wounded Troy Bacchus, called “Fletcher,” with intent to murder him — on September 20, 2015 at Bourda in Georgetown – he changed his plea to guilty at the High Court on Thursday.He had previously said he was defending himself, but after reconsideration, he accepted responsibility for his actions; and this has led Justice Brassington Reynolds to direct the jury foreman to return a formal verdict of guilty.Justice Reynolds has, however, delayed passing sentence on the handyman to October 8, to facilitate the preparation and presentation of a probation report. On October 8, a plea of mitigation and summary of the facts will also be presented.Based on reports surrounding the case, Henry has had a habit of asking individuals for money, and would be violent when persons refuse his request. On the day in question, Bacchus refused Henry’s request, and was wounded by him.During Wednesday’s court appearance, Henry seemed to have had difficulty hearing, as the Judge and the Court’s Registrar had had to repeat statements several times while communicating with him. He had been placed on $50,000 bail prior to his High Court appearance.Henry had not been represented by legal counsel at his trial, as he had not retained one, and the State is not required to provide legal representation for attempted murder.last_img read more

Suarez thanks Liverpool for helping him to the top

first_img0Shares0000Smiling assassin: Luis Suarez is looking to knock old club Liverpool out of the Champions League © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, May 6 – Barcelona striker Luis Suarez returns to Anfield on Tuesday hoping to dump Liverpool out of the Champions League semi-finals, but remains eternally grateful to the Reds for helping him win a move to the Catalan giants.Suarez shone on the field during a turbulent three-and-a-half years at Liverpool, that included long bans for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic and racially abusing Patrice Evra of Manchester United. His role in leading Liverpool to the brink of a long-awaited Premier League title in 2013/2014 saw Barca splash out a then club record fee despite another biting incident on Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup that saw him banned by FIFA for four months.That faith has been rewarded as Suarez has enjoyed great success in Spain, winning four La Liga titles, the Champions League in 2014/15 and four Spanish Cups.And he believes his time at Liverpool was the springboard to making him one of the world’s best strikers.“Liverpool gave me a lot to make me better. My time there made me more professional, make me improve technically, many things,” he said on Monday.“To be captain of Liverpool was something unique in my career. We were fighting for the Premier League and you are left with the sensation we were just one step away.“I am among the elite of football, I am at Barcelona, thanks to what Liverpool made me as a player.”Suarez scored the opening goal against his old club as Barca took a commanding 3-0 first leg lead last week to defend at Anfield.However, he warned the Spanish champions of making the same mistakes they did in throwing away a 4-1 lead against Roma in last season’s Champions League quarter-finals and knows that Liverpool can be a different team on home soil.“We have come off the blow of last season when we had a good advantage (from the first leg). We have thought about that a lot and we know that they have an extra edge here in front of their fans.“To play at Anfield is like playing with an extra man for what the fans transmit to the Liverpool players.”However, if Liverpool are to spring an unlikely comeback, it will be without two of their major goal threats as Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino miss out through injury.“Firmino and Salah are important players for them, but that does not change our preparation for the game,” added Suarez.“They have other players, most of them internationals and we need to pay them plenty respect.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

FOREMAN FOUND NOT GUILTY AFTER WORKER KILLED BY DIGGER BUCKET

first_imgA building site foreman has been found not guilty of negligence charges following the death of a worker who was struck with a digger bucket.Owen Curran, 67, was charged with three counts of negligence under the Safety and Health Act of 2005.Mr Curran was running a site in Milford in Co Donegal on January 8th, 2007 when Francie Callaghan died after being hit by a digger bucket while loading concrete manhole covers. The Health and Safety Authority claimed Mr Curran was negligent on the day that Mr Callaghan died at Forquar, Milford.It claimed that Mr Curran, of Lower Dore, Bunbeg, had devised a method of using chains to lift the 875kg manhole covers with a digger and place them in another location.The prosecution claimed that if this method had not been in place then Mr Callaghan of Shanagh, Fanad, would never have been under the bucket and been hit.“If the bucket fell and nobody was below it we would not be here today. But the fact is that the system of work in lace led him to being struck by the bucket and not being here today,” said prosecuting barrister Patricia McLoughlin.However defence barrister Peter Nolan said the reason Mr Callaghan died was because a safety pin connecting the digger bucket to the arm of the machine had not been in place.The driver of the digger, Dermot Boyce, has already pleaded guilty to various other charges.Mr Nolan claimed the case against his client should never have been brought and that it was an afterthought by the HSA.“We do not live in an ideal world and things like this happen. But I would ask the jury to use their common sense.“The reason this man died is because the safety pin was not inserted into the bucket and it came loose. My client cannot be held responsible for that,” he said.After deliberating for almost an hour, the jury returned a unanimous not guilty verdict on all three charges against Mr Curran.EndsFOREMAN FOUND NOT GUILTY AFTER WORKER KILLED BY DIGGER BUCKET was last modified: May 7th, 2011 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:digger deathMilfordOwen Curranlast_img read more

SPITFIRE PILOT’S HELMET FOUND IN DONEGAL TO BE UNVEILED

first_imgAn iconic piece of military history found in Donegal will be unveiled this weekend.The flying helmet of World War II American fighter pilot Roland ‘Bud’ Wolfe will be put on public display for the first time having undergone a lengthy conservation process since its recovery during the excavation of his Spitfire in Inishowen in 2011.The unveiling will take place at at the Guildhall this Saturday, July 18, as part of a series of special events taking place in Derry celebrating local archaeology and genealogy.The long lost crash site of this historic fighter was discovered by Claudy man Jonny McNee and his daughter Grace who will both be at the Guildhall on Saturday for the unveiling. The remarkably well preserved Rolls Royce Merlin engine from Bud’s Spitfire can also be seen on display in the nearby Tower Museum. Jonny published his book “The Story of the Donegal Spitfire” in 2012, which details how he finally tracked down the Spitfire, which had lain undiscovered deep in a remote mountain bog near Gleneely, since 1941.Bud was an American volunteer pilot flying with 133 Eagle Squadron (RAF) who were based for a short period in 1941 at RAF Eglinton. On 30th November, the young Nebraskan pilot took off for a routine convoy patrol flight off the Donegal coast when his engine began to seriously overheat. Unable to make it back to his base he chose to bail out from his aircraft, serial number P8074. He landed safely near Gleneely in Donegal and was interned for a period of time. On his release in 1943, Bud transferred to the US Army Air Force and flew with the 78th Fighter Group until the end of the war, he also later served in Korea and Vietnam. He passed away in Miami in 1994.It was a lengthy process to investigate the history of this plane and the rumoured whereabouts of its final resting place. However in 2011 Jonny and Grace managed to find local eyewitness who assisted in narrowing down the location of the crash site. Further detailed studies with detection equipment finally pinpointed the exact spot. In June 2011 Jonny was given the necessary permissions by the archaeological authorities in the Republic of Ireland and the MOD (UK) to attempt the first licensed excavation of a WW2 aircraft anywhere on the island of Ireland. The recovery was filmed by the BBC NI as part of the groundbreaking series ‘Dig WW2” which transmitted in 2012.He recalls: “There were many highs and lows and sleepless nights in undertaking this project. The remote location of the crash site, the waterlogged nature of the deep peat and the endless red tape of form filling often made me wonder was I wise to attempt this. However those dark hours are easily forgotten when I look back on my memories of being able to meet Bud’s two daughters, Betty and Barbara and their extended family circle, who travelled from the US to Derry to launch the museum display in 2011.“My personal highlight was firing the last burst of ammunition through one of the Browning machine guns I recovered during the dig. The weapons were cleaned and restored under the expert care of the Irish Defence Force. To witness and hear this weapon fire after it all it had been through was incredible – archaeology doesn’t get much better than that!”Curator with Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Museums Services, Roisin Doherty, said the team at the Museum were thrilled to be able to unveil the piece to the public.“When the Donegal Spitfire first hit the headlines a few years ago it really caught the imagination of the public, and drew attention to the North West’s strategic military role during the Second World War.“The unveiling of the helmet is another chapter in this fascinating story, and we are delighted to be able to show it to the public this weekend, and welcome Jonny and his daughter back to the Guildhall to share their role in its discovery.“I would encourage everyone to come along and take part in Saturday’s celebration of all things historical, and find out more about tracing their own family history, or local history in general.”The School of Irish Archaeology (SIA) will also facilitate a mock dig for children in Guildhall Square on Saturday from 11am. This unique dig is a practical hands-on and fun event for children allowing them to explore the world of archaeology and the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a real life Indiana Jones.There will be an archaeology information fair in the main hall of the Guildhall with heritage and archaeology experts providing information on becoming involved in archaeology. The Guildhall will also host a display of Spitfire P8074 items along with other archaeological artefacts from WW1 & WW2.The Tower Museum throws open its doors for an Archive and Genealogy Open Day with information and advice in tracing your roots. A special tour and talk has been organized in the Museum on ‘La Trinidad Valencera – an Armada Shipwreck’ which will be delivered at 2.30pm by Dave Atherton, diver from the City of Derry Sub-Aqua Club.Visitors to the museum will also have the chance to meet the author of the book ‘An Irish Colleen travels abroad, Anne L. Drabczyk who will be signing copies of her work from 12noon to 5pm. Entry to the museum on the day will be £1.The Archaeology Day will take place on Saturday 18th July from 10am-5pm, with the Big Dig sessions, each lasting 45 minutes, running from 11am – 5pm.SPITFIRE PILOT’S HELMET FOUND IN DONEGAL TO BE UNVEILED was last modified: July 16th, 2015 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:Bud WolfedonegalGleneelyInishowenSpitfirelast_img read more

Unite for Bafana Bafana!

first_img18 June 2010, Johannesburg – Bafana Bafana has in the past the past few weeks done more to cement our proudly South African identity as a Rainbow Nation than the collective efforts dating back to the 1995 Springboks World Cup triumph.With the attention of the world fixed on our beautiful country, seeing all South Africans put aside their differences to rally behind the team is closest to realising the united nation Nelson Madiba Mandela continues to dream about. One loss in 13 matches is no reason to drop our heads in shame.Bafana did us all proud when they held Mexico, a country ranked over 60 places above them, to 1-1 draw in the opening match when few gave the team a chance. Admittedly, the match against Uruguay did not end in the way we had hoped.However, if there was a time to show our boys that the nation is with them through the good and the bad times, then this is it. Bafana Bafana may be down, but they are certainly not out. A convincing win against France in the match scheduled for Bloemfontein on Tuesday is all the team needs to progress in this first World Cup on African soil which the country is exceptionally hosting.“For this reason, now more than ever, we need to paint Tuesday yellow and green from all the four corners of our country in support of our national team. The vuvuzela clarion call must bring us together as we spur our Boys on their most important assignment yet,” said Sophie Masipa, Marketing Manager of the International Marketing Council of South Africa (Brand SA).“Bafana Bafana, we believe, should be the war cry on Tuesday. Wearing our Bafana jerseys and waving our flags high will send a clear message to our boys that the nation remains loyally behind them. The Bafana 12th   is us, the fans, we must carry on playing our part.  Ke Nako!” she said.For further information:Margaret DingaloDirector: Stakeholder RelationsInternational Marketing Council of South AfricaTel: +27 11 483 0122Web: www.brandsouthafrica.comKalay MaistryMedia Relations ManagerInternational Marketing Council of South AfricaTel: +27 11 483 0122Email: kalaym@brandsouthafrica.comlast_img read more

Gajapati’s royal scion joins BJD

first_imgKalyani Devi, scion of the erstwhile royal family of Paralakhemundi in Gajapati district of Odisha, joined the ruling Biju Janata Dal on Tuesday. She was inducted into the party at the residence of Chief Minister and BJD president Naveen Patnaik in Bhubaneswar.Her joining the BJD will strengthen the party in Gajapati district and Berhampur parliamentary constituency, said sources. The BJD might consider fielding her as its candidate from Paralakhemundi Assembly seat or Berhampur parliamentary constituency, the sources said.Ms. Devi’s family had been politically active from before Independence. She is the daughter of former Congress MP from Berhampur, Gopinath Gajapati, who was a member of the ninth and 10th Lok Sabha. He later joined the BJD in 2009.Her grandfather Krushna Chandra Gajapati (1892-1974)played a key role in the formation of Odisha State on linguistic basis and is revered throughout the State. He was the first prime minister of Odisha before Independence and a member of the Constituent Assembly of India. The present day Gajapati district, carved out of Ganjam district, is named after him.“The family of Ms. Devi is well-known for its tradition of social service and her induction will surely strengthen the party organisation,” said BJD’s Gajapati district president Pradeep Nayak. Ms. Devi expressed her gratitude towards Mr. Patnaik for her induction into the BJD and the support extended towards the treatment of her ailing father.last_img read more
