He was reportedly under the influence of alcohol.Thomas however, based on previous threats, refused to give him access and it was then he carried out the gruesome attack. He first dealt two blows to Thomas and then proceeded to chop his wife who was in the guard hut.His wife reportedly ran out in an attempt to escape but due to her injuries she collapsed a short distance away. The man went after her and continued to chop the woman until she died.After committing the act, he turned up at the Mahaica Police Station where he confessed to the murder and handed over the weapon.At the home of the dead woman, her mother, Yvonne Andrews was inconsolable while flanked by family.She recalled that her son-in-law was consuming alcohol in the village all day Wednesday and was heard telling people he did not want his wife to work as a guard.The woman started to work with Home Safe Security Firm six weeks ago.“He nah wuk… he ah drink the rum… she get a lil wuk, she want money to maintain she self”. The mother recalled that on the faithfull night, her daughter was visiting.Soon after, there was a power failure and she heard the suspect calling for his wife but she instructed her not to answer. After sometime, and he did not get a response, he left.After meh know he gone, meh call she cousin who does wuk with she to come collect she but the cousin de done left to go to the school”.

At that time, the aggrieved mother saw the cutlass in his hands but did not know his intentions.“Meh daughter and she cousin went in the guard house and bin ah put up cardboard because de rain de falling… He chop Brenda fuss – one on she belly, one on she back and one on she finger. Then Brenda run way and then he attack Cindy… He chop she then he turnover she and finish she off, dah ah wah meh hear”.In tears the woman stated that she received a call from Thomas’ daughter informing her that her daughter was dead. She immediately ran to the school where she saw her daughter’s bloodied body lying in a pool of water and mud.As she attempted to lift her daughter, she realised that her head was almost severed and her body bore several wounds. She noted that her daughter did not deserve such a horrific death.As she continued, the devastated mother told Guyana Times that the man would normally threaten her daughter but she always passed it off as a joke and never reported it.At the home of Thomas, her son Joel told Guyana Times he was asleep when he heard his mother calling for help. In a panic, he rushed out to check on his mother but the front door would not open, forcing him to jump from the veranda. As he looked as his mother, she was bleeding from her abdomen and immediately summoned a taxi and took her to the Mahaicony Hospital but she was subsequently transferred.On their way to the hospital she told him what had transpired. In shock, he noted that he was not surprised at the man’s action, claiming that he had previously threatened his mother.He was relieved to disclose that his mother is in a stable condition.Meanwhile, at the scene, several of the woman’s colleagues expressed sadness upon hearing the devastating news. The now dead woman was described as an easy-going person with a lot of potential.One woman, Millicent Craig, told Guyana Times that the man would frequently visit the woman’s workplace with a cutlass and would carry out threats. The now dead woman was urged to make an official complaint to the police but she never did.Pitt leaves to mourn her parents and two siblings.Her murderer, her husband of 13 years, is expected to be charged shortly.

Process streamlined for mixed-use developments

first_imgCounty officials said an ongoing housing crisis is forcing them to add 57,176 units to unincorporated areas. “It’s an affordability issue,” Chung said. “It affects everybody.” She added that adding diverse, affordable housing options is one way to combat the crisis. “You can already do commercial uses in these areas which are more intense than what you could do with this ordinance,” Chung said. “Having mixed-use developments along commercial corridors encourages people not to be so reliant on their cars, so theoretically there’s a potential to reduce traffic.” bethania.palma@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2236160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ROWLAND HEIGHTS – The county this week streamlined the process to get permits for retail and residential developments in unincorporated areas. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors passed the ordinance and said mixed-use developments – with commercial or retail on the floor level and living spaces above – are necessary to combat a nationwide housing crisis and growing traffic congestion. Residents said they are concerned because it takes away the public hearing process for developments that meet specific requirements, but they said county officials have expressed willingness to work with them. “The idea is that with certain projects, as long as they meet certain standards, they can do a vertical mixed-use development that wouldn’t require a public hearings or a (conditional use permit),” said Connie Chung of the county’s housing section.

Such developments, she added, could only be built in certain commercial zones. Rowland Heights community representatives said they are concerned about the seeming one- size-fits-all approach. “Everything should be studied because everything has specific impacts,” said David Rodriguez, president of the Rowland Heights Community Coordinating Council. “What’s good somewhere else is not automatically good in our community.” He said with main thoroughfares like Nogales Street and Colima and Fullerton roads already clogged with traffic, infrastructure problems must be addressed before new residents are added to the mix. “We’re looking for Rowland Heights to be planned (as a whole),” he said. “What can we do to make the community better?” last_img read more

VOLUNTARY ORGANISATION ‘WE CARE’ OPEN FOOD BANK IN LETTERKENNY

first_img‘We Care’ a voluntary organisation whose aim is to deliver services to those who are most in need, have opened a FOOD BANK in the Letterkenny/Donegal Area.A group of volunteers got together in the Autumn of 2013 to explore the idea of setting up a soup kitchen in Letterkenny. As they explored this idea, they came across the idea of a Food Bank. We formed a committee and called ourselves “We Care”. They did some research and found some startling reports of poverty in Donegal.They made contact with Cross Care in Dublin who operate a food bank and who have become our main supporter and we discussed the possibility of a Food Bank in Letterkenny.They travelled to Cross Care in Dublin and met with the manager who provided us with the working model of how to operate a Food Bank. Cross Care made contact with the volunteers in July to say that Kellogs had agreed to deliver food to them on a monthly basis once they were ready to receive a drop.Thus they set about looking for premises.We Care have a room for storage at present and are ready to start collecting food.However, they urgently require Shelving and a Food Weighing Scales.They also urgently need some Sponsorship.Their mission is to work in partnership with local agencies to assist those affected by food poverty and food deprivation within a defined area. Our goal is at all times to maintain dignity and respect for participants for whom we provide services.Food Banks throughout the country are proving to be successful and following through on their aims and objectives.We Care feel confident that a food bank in Letterkenny will also be successful and meet the needs of people.VOLUNTARY ORGANISATION ‘WE CARE’ OPEN FOOD BANK IN LETTERKENNY was last modified: November 12th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:FeaturesNews Noticeslast_img read more
