In light of a recent article published in Guyana Times under the caption “Questions mount over quality of GuyOil fuel”, the company in its response stated that its product is certified and called the article “outrageous”.In a brief statement on the matter, the State entity reassured its customers and the general public that fuel sold by the company is subjected to rigorous quality control tests and is certified to have met all required specifications.GuyOil went on to say that contrary the reports published, it has “not received any reports from its customers or franchise holders which indicate that they have experienced any challenges in the operation of their vehicles as a result of fuel purchased from its service stations.” This response from the company came after numerous complaints surfaced in the press indicating that quality of gasoline could have been responsible for multiple vehicles overheating and catching fire leaving operators and some occupants to dart for safety.Some persons related that GuyOil was among the stations they had purchased from and when this newspaper sought a comment from representatives last week, such attempts proved futile. Notably, after several minutes waiting on the line, calls were being transferred to various departments, purportedly within the company.Among the complaints mounted by members of the public was that peculiar fumes were emanating from the fuel and complaints that vehicles were overheating.A mechanic relayed on Friday that he began to encounter difficulties with several vehicles which he claimed was using fuel from GuyOil.A motorcycle started to overheat soon after fuel was purchase from the entity. As such, the mechanic told Guyana Times that he then emptied the gas tank and refilled it with another gasoline brand. When this was done, the motorcycle’s engine reportedly began to run smoothly and without any difficulties, he claimed.The man, who chose to remain anonymous, had further claimed that he contacted the gas station where the fuel was purchased but was unable to speak with a representative. Only recently, four vehicles erupted in flames. Reports are that the first fire occurred at High Street and Brickdam on Wednesday after persons saw the driver stopping his vehicle and thick smoke which emanated from the bonnet transformed into an uncontrollable fire.The vehicle, bearing registration number PJJ 5656, was badly damaged.The second was a bus contracted to the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) which was crossing over David Street, heading in the direction of the Rupert Craig Highway. The driver, Tameshwar Mullin, had noticed smoke stemming from under his seat. After parking and exiting the vehicle, he lifted the seat and saw the flames.The third vehicle was a minibus that caught fire on Thursday in Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne). Police in D Division (West Demerara-East Bank Essequibo) are also the investigating the circumstances under which a route 32 minibus, travelling to Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara, crashed and caught fire on Thursday. However, the driver reportedly claimed that a fire started in the vehicle which resulted in the crash though some passengers disputed this claim.
The cash crop farmers in Canal No 1, Polder, West Bank Demerara, (WBD) continue to live in a state of distress as their produce are dying out as a result of excessive flooding in the area.Some of the flooded areas in Canal No 1 Polder, West Bank Demerara (WBD)The farmers’ crops have been under water for the past month. The farmers are now forced to count their losses which amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars.The flooding, residents claim, are as a result of poor drainage systems in the areas.Presently, the canal is overtaken by vegetation, causing it to be clogged. Compounding the situation, stones and asphalt from a road which broke away some time ago have slipped into the canal causing the water to remain on land.According to the farmers and hundreds of affected residents, the area has always been affected by flooding, however, this is the first time that they have been affected for such an extended period.Works have in the past been carried out by the Neighbouring Democratic Council (NDC) to clear the drainage system however, the farmers are contending that the said work was not properly done.The Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of Region Three (3) has also been made aware of the situation, however to date, no intervention is forthcoming.Ramzan Shaw, a farmer who has lost over $300,000 worth of crops and who continues to lose, is now crying out for help.According to the farmer, his livelihood is being threatened since over 30 peach trees, 20 breadfruits trees and several others crops have died due to excessive water.Shaw calls for a channel to be dug which will see the water on the land being drained off at a rapid pace.“The canal in front of us, it is full of moss, what they do is they come and weed it top top and after two mornings, it grows back and flood again. Now they need to dig a channel in the canal, build the dam which will leave the channel in the middle so that the water can keep running off” Shaw said.According to the farmer, if those responsible for the drainage system visit the area to hear the residents’ concerns, then flooding would not be an issue since it can easily be fixed with the proper intervention.Another farmer, Anil Seegobin also reached out to this publication. “You can tell that if this flood here last lil longer, that all me tree them go dead out, me really glad if somebody can come and help, we out man,” the man said.Efforts made yet again to contact the RDC on Sunday proved futile.
Political science professor Charles Dirks also has said he was assaulted by a sheriff’s deputy when he was assisting the fired cadet a day after the student government meeting. Jose Luis Ramirez, a campus counselor who is not related to Joe Ramirez, urged the faculty to oppose the no-confidence vote, saying the administrator had not received due process. Faculty Senator Rick Scuderi, director of the disabled students program, cast the lone no vote, saying he had heard conflicting stories about the various incidents. About 40 Mission students and faculty went to last week’s meeting of the Los Angeles Community College District board and presented a petition with 450 student signatures demanding Joe Ramirez be removed. Chancellor Darroch “Rocky” Young said Mission should resolve the conflict on its own but warned campus officials the district would intervene if Mission did not do so soon. The Faculty Senate also tabled until June 1 a vote on creating a separate Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies because Chicano Studies professors John Morales and Jose Maldonado were absent from the meeting. email@example.com (818) 713-3663160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SYLMAR – The Mission College Faculty Senate overwhelmingly approved a no-confidence vote Thursday for the campus’ vice president for student services, who is embroiled in a political spat with colleagues and students. The senate voted 19-1, with two abstentions, to send a clear signal to Joe Ramirez that it is unhappy with his leadership. While the vote is not binding, it increases pressure on the administration to remove Ramirez, who was placed on administrative leave last month. He was absent from the meeting and could not be reached for comment. Ramirez’s critics say he has interfered in student elections and has favored Latino students and staff over others.

We don’t interfere with student elections and we stand up for all the students on the campus and we don’t show favoritism to any student or particular group of students.” Interim President Jose A. Leyba, who is leaving the college on June 30, said he will not act on the Faculty Senate vote until after investigations of several incidents are complete. He has hired attorney Stuart Rudnick to investigate. “Everyone is innocent until proven otherwise,” Leyba said. One investigation already has concluded, and officials determined that Ramirez acted properly in postponing recent student elections. But investigations continue into accusations by students and faculty that he ordered a student fired from her job as a Sheriff’s Department cadet after a student government meeting last month, and of seizing a tape recording of the meeting and having a portion of it erased.
Disappointed Donegal boss Jim McGuinness has admitted he thought his side had the better of Dublin in the heat of yesterday’s crunch All-Ireland semi-final.The straight-talking Glenties man said when his team went three points ahead of The Dubs, he believed they had a date with Kerry.“When we went 6-3 up I thought we could have done it if we had pushed on. “But it wasn’t to be and Dublin knuckled down and continued to chip away with the scores. That’s just football.“But yes I thought we could have done it at that stage. It was there for us but in fairness to Dublin they began to wear us down,” he said.The loss of Karl Lacey was a huge blow to Donegal while the sending off of Diarmuid Connolly after 57 minutes seemed to spur Dublin on.Donegal were still a point ahead but three unanswered scores form the Dubs brought the wheels of the Donegal trolley. McGuinness and his panel are now expected to take a well-earned break but the manager is already talking about a new squad.“We will sit down and evaluate the squad and take things from there.“We have had a long hard season and every one of those players have given it their all. I could not have asked any more of them,” he said.EndsI THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO PUSH ON AND WIN IT – MCGUINNESS was last modified: August 29th, 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:donegaldublinJim McGuinness

Leading Donegal jockey Martin Harley has been hospitalised after a heavy fall while taking part in a race in England.Jockey Martin Harley has been hospitalised after fall.Martin, from Trentagh outside Letterkenny, fell heavily from his horse Red Alert at Lingfield earlier today.It is not known how bad his injuries are. The incident happened when Harley was riding the 7-4 favourite Red Art in the Ladbrokes Mobile Handicap.Harley was taken to hospital by ambulance but racing was delayed for more than an hour and a half as a result.Harley was closing on the leaders inside the final furlong when Red Art clipped the heels of horses in front of him.The horse fell heavily and suffered fatal injuries. Harley was thrown hard to the ground and had to be taken to East Surrey Hospital in nearby Redhill. Presumido (5-1) held on to win the race, by half a length from Alnoomaas, and the trainer Simon Dow said: “It’s a hollow victory when something like that happens, and our thoughts are with Martin and the other connections.” DONEGAL JOCKEY HARLEY HOSPITALISED AFTER FALL was last modified: March 20th, 2014 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:donegalfalljockeyMartin Harley
