MV Canawaima to be docked for 9 days

first_imgThe MV Canawaima ferry plying the Moleson Creek, Guyana to Nickerie, Suriname route will be docked for a nine-day period while it undergoes immediate restoration of both its engines.Canawaima Ferry Services Terminal Manager Deyne HarryThis is according to Canawaima Ferry Services Terminal Manager Deyne Harry, who spoke of some of the projects scheduled for 2018 under this agency. The nine-day docking period commences on January 6, 2018, and will conclude on January 14, 2018.Harry also added that while the vessel would be docked, there would be no other alternatives for the crossing from Guyana to Suriname. Persons using the ferry, especially vehicle owners and motor vehicle operators, will be affected by the suspension of service.Harry noted that “the MV Canawaima continues to experience extensive mechanical challenges that prompted the use of a tug to assist in the propulsion of a vessel”. This, he added, has resulted in delayed arrival and departure times for the ferry.Presently, the ferry has one scheduled crossing daily. There is also another scheduled docking for the month of April 2018. Details pertaining to this will be provided in a timely manner to the public.last_img read more

No charges filed in North Hollywood homicide

first_imgNo charges were filed against two teenagers arrested in connection with the shooting death of an Armenian man in North Hollywood last month because there wasn’t enough evidence to successfully prosecute them, police said this morning. A 17-year-old boy has been released from jail after he was booked Monday on suspicion of murder in the death of Marat Manukyan, who was shot in a gunbattle after a fight broke out among a group of Armenian males at a North Hollywood Starbucks. Arsen Vardanyan, 18, has also been released from custody after he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the fight that led to the shooting, said Los Angeles Police Detective Martin Pinner, of the North Hollywood Division. “There wasn’t enough evidence,” Pinner said. “We continue with the investigation to see if any witnesses come forward, or find additional witnesses. We believe that we’ve identified the shooter, we just don’t have enough evidence to prosecute him. We had enough evidence to arrest him but there was not enough evidence on either of the suspects to successfully prosecute them.” Plainclothes officers arrested the juvenile suspect without incident Monday night at Universal Citywalk, after a couple of attempts to find him at his house were unsuccessful, said Los Angeles Police Detective Richard Wheeler, the homicide supervisor at the North Hollywood Division. Last week, police questioned several other unidentified males, ages 17-22, about their possible roles in the shooting, which occurred in the 13100 block of Raymer Street, said Los Angeles police Lt. Andy Neiman, who supervises North Hollywood detectives. Members of the Eurasian Organized Crime Task Force – composed of federal, state and local investigators – were called to assist North Hollywood detectives with translation and contacts in the Armenian community, said LAPD Detective Martin Pinner, of the North Hollywood Division. Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s elite Metro unit fanned out in predawn raids May 17 to serve search warrants at six locations in connection with the case, stretching from Van Nuys to Glendale. The warrants were served three weeks after Manukyan was killed. The shooting stemmed from a fight Manukyan and several acquaintances had earlier with another group in which a chair was thrown at Starbucks on Coldwater Canyon Avenue and Victory Boulevard in North Hollywood, police said. The 18-year-old man was arrested in connection with the chair-throwing incident, police said. The group had been arguing after someone from the group showed “disrespect” to the other group, Pinner said. Although the case is not officially classified as gang-related, at least one member from the group is reputed to be a member of Armenian Power, Pinner said. The group continued its dispute later along a dark and isolated spot near railroad tracks. A gunbattle ensued and Manukyan was hit in the back, police said. The suspects fled and Manukyan was taken to a local hospital, where he died.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgFigures released today show that Donegal trails only Cork and Dublin in the youth unemployment tables.Donegal’s youth unemployment figures are third highest in country.The figures show that with 2,697 people under the age of 25 in the county are now receiving jobseekers payments.Inishowen Sinn Féin councillor Jack Murray has said that the government must act to address the youth unemployment crisis in Donegal. Commenting today on the figures released from the Department of Social Protection, Cllr Murray said that the Government must do more to ensure that our young people have opportunities to gain employment.Cllr Murray said “The figures released today show that a total of 2697 people under the age of 25 in Donegal are in receipt of jobseeker’s payments.“Even more worrying is the fact that 1197 of these people have been in receipt of the payment for over 1 year. This represents 44% of all those under 25 in receipt of jobseeker’s payments in the county.“Shockingly, only Dublin and Cork have higher youth unemployment figures than Donegal. When considering the population difference between Donegal and these two counties it becomes clear just how big this problem is. “In fact, Mayo – a county on the western seaboard with a similar population to Donegal – has less than half as many young people under the age of 25 out of work.“There can be no doubt that Government policy is failing our young people. There are 15,400 fewer people under the age of 34 in work now than when Fine Gael and Labour came into office and youth unemployment remains double the adult rate.“Figures released by Eurostat confirm that Ireland has the highest level of emigration in the EU – 165,300 young people have left in the past five years. 33,500 people between the ages of 15 and 24 age emigrated in 2014.”He added that this Government is presiding over the greatest exodus of young talent that this state has ever seen.More people are leaving the state than left at any time during the 1980s and 70% of those who have emigrated are in their 20s while over 60% have degrees, he said. “Yet our Government TDs and Ministers are falling over themselves to give each other pats on the back for an economic recovery that has not touched the vast majority of people across the state and is leaving a generation of young Irish people behind.“Sinn Féin is committed to achieving a fair recovery, one which will create the conditions for prosperity in every corner of Ireland and will ensure a bright future for our young people.“We have proposed the creation of a youth guarantee which would be funded through a wealth tax and the end of exploitative schemes such as JobBridge and the Gateway scheme which do nothing to increase employment prospects for the majority of young people.“Our young people are well educated, skilled and talented. They are crying out for opportunities to develop themselves, to work and to contribute to their local communities. They need this Government to invest in their future, not ignore their needs.” SHOCK FIGURES SHOW DONEGAL YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT THIRD HIGHEST was last modified: April 21st, 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)last_img read more
