Buy out Berbice River Bridge for public good – overseas economist to Govt

first_imgBy Samuel SukhnandanAs the time draws closer to the date set for the imposition of fare increases at the Berbice River Bridge, there continues to be great worry over whether this could in fact take effect, or whether the Government would step in and reverse the decision.Economics Professor Tarron KhemrajOverseas-based economist Professor Tarron Khemraj feels that Government should buy over the bridge in its entirety. He told Guyana Times on Sunday that the bridge is now financially unsustainable, as compared to when the proposal for its construction was implemented.“As I said, the demand was not there then; hence the need now for high tolls. Berbice has suffered from depopulation in the past 15-20 years. Therefore, I support buying out or nationalising the bridge,” Khemraj noted.He said that once the Government owns the bridge, some decisions would have to be made to address the high operating costs of this type of bridge. According to him, decisions would have to be made with the objective of motivating private sector employment in Berbice.A former advisor to the Alliance for Change (AFC), Khemraj is also opposed to increasing the bridge tolls, especially because the traffic flow to accommodate the higher tolls is not there.“This is why they have to increase the price to make up the revenues,” he explained, adding that the Berbice Bridge Company Inc (BBCI) seem to have forgotten the concept of price elasticity.“The higher price will contract demand — even though they tried to curtail all substitutes, like the private boat operators and the ferry — and therefore compound the pressure on an already vulnerable region…The BBCI is caught between a rock and a hard place,” he said.No visionThe economist spared no effort in chastising the coalition Government for appearing not to be certain about what they are doing.“They rolled up village economies, free markets, green economy, petro-based economy, small business, etc., all in one,” he said.At this stage, Khemraj said, it is clear the bridge has a dimension of higher public good than the private aspect. Therefore, he recommended, Government should buy out all of the shares.“That’s a solution, albeit it can’t be the sole policy action; it will have to be followed by other actions. When you have a public good, the Government has to provide a subsidy. Otherwise, the private sector does not have the incentive to do so,” he explained.While the BBCI is ultimately responsible to its shareholders, the economist told Guyana Times that BCCI officials have to bear in mind what the demand response is going to be if they take the price too high.“These are clearly exorbitant proposed increases. I can see some kind of a strategic tit-for-tat occurring. The Government can respond by allowing the private boat operators to do business, which will further hurt the investment return. The Government will be more willing to finance any shortfall in the National Insurance Scheme (NIS), but unlikely BBCI,” he added.He called it ‘unfortunate politics.’ However, Khemraj said he is under the impression that the BBCI is falling for the ‘sunk cost fallacy’. “If you don’t cover your operating costs, you have to let the investment go. You can’t let sunk cost guide future actions,” he opined.The new fares the BCCI proposes to impose for use of the bridge stipulate that cars and minibuses will now be charged $8040; pickups, small trucks and four-wheel-drive vehicles, $14,600; medium trucks, $27,720; large trucks, $49,600; Articulated trucks, $116,680; freight, $1680; and boats passing through the river will be charged $401,040.Government has outrightly rejected the proposed toll increases, but has simultaneously stated its non-support for a buyout. Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson had told the media that the proposal to buyout the shares of the BBCI is not on Government’s agenda at this time.The proposed increases are scheduled to take effect on November 12.last_img read more

Bruins capture Pac-10 crown

first_imgThe setting could have been intimidating to some schools, but not UCLA, which has shown to be unflappable even in harsher instances. So it goes to without saying UCLA showed no signs of stage fright, and showed why it is the class of the West. The No. 2-ranked Bruins put on an offensive and defensive clinic in the second half, choking out No. 13 Washington State, 53-45, in front of 11,618 fans to win the Pac-10 title outright for the second straight season, and keep the Cougars without a Pac-10 title since 1941. Next on UCLA’s agenda is Saturday’s trip to Washington, where the stakes are now not stumbling so it can secure the No. 1 seed in the West region of the NCAA Tournament, which tips off in less than two weeks. “I’m very happy,” said junior guard Arron Afflalo, who led UCLA with 14 points. “This is another year we establish UCLA as a premiere team. The whole thing is to be consistent with that, and get it back to the golden days.” The Bruins (26-3, 15-2) now own 29 conference titles, and are the top seed in next week’s Pac-10 Tournament. WSU (23-6, 12-5) still claimed second place in the league, matching its best finish in Pac-10 play. “We’re really, really happy to get this win, which gives us sole possession of the regular season Pac-10 championship, which is an important goal for us,” UCLA coach Ben Howland said. “I think Washington State is just outstanding. This is a great gut check. We played great defense.” One thing missing from this postgame celebration was a Gatorade shower for Howland. Last season he was drenched upon entering the locker room at Stanford after the Bruins clinched the title outright, but this time he met the media dry. Photo Gallery: UCLA vs WSU PULLMAN, Wash. – The energy on the Palouse was unrivaled, with the locals talking about the biggest game in at least two decades, and some calling it the biggest in Washington State history. It made for a memorable Thursday night at Friel Court, one filled with chanting students, tension, and the Pacific 10’s two best basketball teams. center_img “I think he’s used to this by now,” UCLA guard Darren Collison said. “He’s real focused on winning a national title. We’re that good. Even though we appreciate that we won the Pac-10 championship, we still want to go and look forward.” Bruins wing Josh Shipp scored 12 points and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute had 10. Wazzu was led by Kyle Weaver’s 14 points, but leading scorer Derrick Low was nearly shut out. He was averaging 13.9 points per game, but was held to two points. With Afflalo doing much of the defending, Low was 1 of 8 from the field, with the lone basket coming on a 12-foot bank shot from straight on. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Televangelist Rex Humbard dies

first_imgHis Sunday services were televised by 1953. He began with a renovated theater and eventually built the $4 million domed, 5,000-seat nondenominational Cathedral of Tomorrow. The broadcast developed into a mixture of preaching and music. One of Humbard’s admirers was Elvis Presley, who often sang gospel music himself. Humbard spoke at his funeral. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! By The Associated Press ATLANTIS, Fla. – The Rev. Rex Humbard, a former itinerant preacher whose televangelism ministry once reached more parts of the globe than any other religious program, died Friday of natural causes, a family spokeswoman said. He was 88. The son of evangelists, Humbard evolved his ministry from revivals across the country to a permanent home in Akron, Ohio, and television. He realized the potential of the new medium in the early 1950s and became known to millions by the 1970s. But financial overreaching eventually eroded his organization. As with his contemporaries Billy Graham and Oral Roberts, Humbard’s ministry began to flourish in the post-World War II era. “The vast majority of people do not go to church and the only way we can reach them is through TV,” he said in his autobiographical book, Miracles in My Life. last_img read more

first_imgA WOMAN who attacked a charity worker while on temporary release from prison was just a week into a sentence – and had the rest of that sentence written off by the prison service despite not returning to jail.Harriett Higgins, 21, pictured right, of Orchard Drive in Donegal Town pleaded guilty to throwing a glass at Martina O’Donnell at a charity event at Dom’s Bar in the town on May 30, 2010.Higgins was jailed for two years – the last 12 months suspended – when she appeared at Donegal Town Circuit Court and apologised to Ms O’Donnell. Martina, 34, suffered permanent scarring on her face as a result of the attack. She had organised the event to raise money for victims of the Haiti earthquake.Higgins read an apology to her victim in court and had told Gardai when she was arrested: “I didn’t mean to. I feel really bad about it. I can’t go to jail for this. I had drink taken.”However can reveal that Ms O’Donnell would never have been hurt had Higgins been kept in prison.Instead Higgins was given temporary release just days into a three month prison sentence for public order offences.And when she was arrested for the attack on Ms O’Donnell, gardai were told NOT to return her to prison – because the prison service said her three month sentence was ‘spent.’When she was interviewed by Gardai Higgins had admitted “throwing a glass at a group of girls as she thought they were laughing at her. She claimed that she became paranoid and it wasn’t a personal attack.”Ms O’Donnell said surgeons have told her she will have a 4cm scar on her face for life.“I dislike being in big crowds now; I’m nervous – it affects my confidence and it leaves me embarrassed. My mother worries about me a lot,” she said.“I now wear my hair down to try to cover my scar. It just leaves me very paranoid and nervous all the time.”Judge O’Hagan said Higgins had “an appalling life brought up in the most awful of circumstances.”But he said Higgins had previous convictions in Co Mayo for public order offences and was on temporary release from prison when she threw the glass at Ms O’Donnell.Judge O’Hagan said: “I believe that a custodial sentence is absolutely necessary in this case. I have to send out a message to young people that you can’t behave like this and get away with it.”Speaking after the case Ms O’Donnell, who is a member of the Donegal Town Community Band, said: “The fact is that if she (Higgins) had not been released so soon into her previous sentence, I would not be scarred for life today.“There were also the two years from when I was attacked until this week in court when she (Higgins) was prancing about Donegal town and left me living in fear.”“The system isn’t right though,” she said, “but unfortunately there is nothing I can do about that.“I just want to get on with my life now and try to put this all behind me.”PRISON SERVICE WROTE OFF SENTENCE OF GIRL WHO SMASHED GLASS IN VICTIM’S FACE was last modified: April 2nd, 2012 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:PRISON SERVICE WROTE OFF SENTENCE OF GIRL WHO SMASHED GLASS IN VICTIM’S FACElast_img read more


first_imgGLENTIES Garda station will be downgraded when the police district is scrapped later this year, can reveal.Senator Brian O Domhnaill raised the matter with minister Kathleen Lynch in the Seanad last night.But our sources confirmed that the District will be done away with under new proposals. Milford and Ballyshannon districts will be expanded to cover the Glenties area, with Milford being expanded to take in Gaoth Dobhair and stretching as far as Dungloe.Opposition politicians have raised the issue on a number of occasions in the past few weeks.But Garda sources told that Glenties will lose senior personnel and will be downgraded as the district it covers is scrapped and merged.“It is just ridiculous,” one senior Garda in the county told us, “policing will suffer as a result of this decision. There is no doubt about that.” Donegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has told the Seanad that the uncertainty over the Justice of the District Headquarters Status of Glenties Garda Station is causing wide-spread annoyance and anger in West Donegal.Senator Ó Domhnaill moved an emergency motion in Seanad Éireann, last night (Wednesday 20th June) on the issue calling on the Minister for Justice to clarify the current position.  However Senator Ó Domhnaill has reacted with deep dissatisfaction and disappointment at the response received in the Seanad from the Minister of State Kathleen Lynch on behalf of the Minister of Justice.Ó Domhnaill said; “The response received was deeply disappointing and has given absolutely no assurances on the future of the District Headquarters status of Glenties Garda Station. The Minister did outline that the Policing Plan for 2013 has as yet not been finalised but that any proposals contained within the plan are expected to contain measures to address the ongoing issue of rationalisation of the Garda Station Network.“The Minister went on to outline that the regrettable and unacceptable news that the Glenties Garda District will be subject to this same level of monitoring and decision making to ensure that optimum use is made of Garda resources.”Ó Domhnaill told the Seanad; “The Glenties Garda District covers a huge geographical area stretching from Kilcar/Carrick to Meenacuing in Gweedore, covering Garda Stations which include; Annagry, Bunbeg, Burtonport, Carrick, Dungloe and Glencolmcille. The Garda strength as of the 31 May 2012, the latest date for which figures are available was 52 in the Glenties District from a total of 433 in the Donegal Division.” ” The Minister and the Government are responsible for providing resources to An Garda Síochana to protect our citizens. An under re-sourced force cannot be expected to do this work effectively. The Government have closed 39 Stations over the last few months with 3 of those stations being in Donegal.“The Minister has failed to give a guarantee in the Seanad about the future of the Glenties District Station and in my view that shows a total lack of commitment to Rural Policing. The existing Garda Resources must be protected and indeed additional resources required.“At a time of increasing crime in our County the Ministers response is flabbergasting.”GLENTIES GARDA STATION WILL BE DOWNGRADED IN POLICING SHAKE-UP was last modified: June 21st, 2012 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:GLENTIES GARDA STATION WILL BE DOWNGRADED IN POLICING SHAKE-UPlast_img read more


first_imgInishowen Sinn Féin councillor Jack Murray has said that he has been contacted by many local farmers who are concerned at the effect heavy rainfall has had on silage stocks. Cllr Murray said that the  government must prepare for the expected fall in silage harvest due to the wet weather throughout the month of June.Cllr Murray said: “I have been contacted by many local farmers who are concerned that the heavy rainfall in June has seriously hampered their ability to harvest silage for the winter. Many farmers were forced to re-house their herds as a result of their fields being waterlogged.“This puts pressure on any remaining silage that they may have had since last winter. The wet weather has also had a significant effect on milk yields which puts further financial pressure on dairy farmers. “The government must now take measures to ensure that farmers do not take a big financial hit because of the bad weather. Minister Coveney needs to take preemptive action and consider an advance Single Farm Payment which would help alleviate the financial pressure that farmers are now under.”Cllr Murray concluded by stating that Minister Coveney has a responsibility to ensure there are sufficient supplies of animal feed for the winter should the bad weather continue into the summer, WET WEATHER DAMAGING FARMERS, SAYS MURRAY was last modified: July 5th, 2012 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)last_img read more

We are over the moon with excitement. It just goes to show what you can achieve with hard work, dedication and with your heart in the right place.”Mayor of Donegal Cllr Ian McGarvey congratulated Donegal Youth Council on this major achievement.“Since its inauguration in 2002 Donegal Youth Council has provided a platform for young people in the county to contribute young people’s views on a range of issues and also to undertake a range of projects for young people in the County.
