5-day closure postponed for later in 2018

first_img…panels require fabricationThe Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation (DHBC) had earlier this year decided to close the Demerara Harbour Bridge to all marine and vehicular traffic for approximately five days in order to change panels thereon, but those works have had to be postponed because the panels require fabrication to increase their strength.General Manager of the DHBC, Rawlston Adams, last Friday made this disclosure and noted that the panels, upon inspection, were deemed below the DHBC’s requirement at this time.The Demerara Harbour Bridge“What we recognise is that we need to fabricate some of those panels. We thought that initially we would be able to reuse some of the old panels that we would have salvaged; but in the review and planning, we’ve realized that those panels are not suitable enough in terms of the strength,” Adams explained.Adams said that for any of the present panels to be reusable, there is need for them to be fabricated — a process not employed in Guyana on the dimension of panels situated on the bridge.“So what we’ve decided to do is fabricate. And because of the fact that the panels need to be galvanized, galvanization for panels that big is not done in Guyana, so we have to send (them) overseas. We’re working to get quotations to source those panels,” he explained.A new date for the pending work will be set when the fabricated panels return. Asked if the panels will be changed by the end of this year, Adams answered in the affirmative.“The fact that we cannot announce a date is contingent upon the timings of the return of those panels. We have been monitoring the situation in respect to the areas where the panels have to be changed. Once we get a firm word on when the panels will be returned, then is when we will announce those works; but those works need to be executed,” Adams declared.There are other areas of the bridge which require rehabilitative works. However, the main focus of the company is to have the panels replaced.In addition to this project, the DHBC is working on the rehabilitation of six large and 15 regular pontoons; the fabrication of 40 buoys, 20,000 feet of galvanized anchor chain and 30,000 feet of wire rope; and the rehabilitation of the traffic office for this year. These works are expected to cost some $267 million.last_img read more


Huskies mushing to Slave Lake to begin postseason

first_imgIf not interested in making the journey to Alberta, don’t fret, as Moose FM will be broadcasting each road game live as the action unfolds. Saturday’s game is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. MT, and then Sunday, the game hits the ice at 1 p.m. MT. Be sure to tune into the informative and entertaining Moose FM pre-game show, starting 15 minutes prior to puck drop.To listen live to all the playoff action, click here.Elsewhere around the NWJHL, playoff matchups include: Beaverlodge (7) versus Peace River (2), Dawson Creek (6) versus Fairview (3), Sexsmith (8) versus Grande Prairie (1). Five games were played between the Huskies and the Wolves this regular season, when Fort St. John took the first two games of the series, followed by three in-a-row by the Wolves. Slave Lake was not a friendly environment for the Huskies, who suffered back-to-back losses in Slave Lake during their only two visits of the season.However, each of the three losses suffered by the Huskies were only determined by a single point (4-3, 2-1, 5-4 OT), so the Huskies should not be discouraged by the three consecutive defeats.The Huskies also have the edge when comparing goals for and against, as the Huskies managed to put the biscuit in the basket 144 times, while the Wolves scored 133 goals during the regular season. Fort St. John also allowed fewer goals against than Slave Lake, 150-166.- Advertisement -Even though the regular season is over, momentum entering the postseason can play a huge role in how a team performs off the bat. In that category, the edge goes to Slave Lake, who enter the postseason riding a two-game winning streak. It’s the opposite end of the spectrum for the Huskies, who will enter the postseason having lost their final two regular season games.Both squads also have some significant fire power on the offensive side of the game, with each entering the series with seven players recording over 20 points throughout the regular season.The travel-filled series will begin in Slave Lake this weekend for game one Saturday evening, followed by game two Sunday afternoon. The series will then shift to the Energetic City Monday for game three, followed by another game in Fort St. John Saturday, February 23. If necessary, the series will wrap up the next day, Sunday, February 24 back in Slave Lake.Advertisementlast_img read more

Incumbents in early leads

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Incumbents in both the Montebello and Santa Fe Springs City Council races and the Pico Water District board of directors contest were dominating in early returns Tuesday.In the race for the Montebello City Council, sole incumbent Mayor Bill Molinari led Rosie Vasquez and Jeff Siccama for the three open seats following an early counting of absentee ballots.Many of the nine candidates in the heated Montebello election had never held public office. This is Siccama’s second run for City Council.Molinari decided to run for a sixth term this year, while council members Ed Vasquez and Mary Anne Saucedo decided not to run again, leaving a total of three seats up for grabs. Trailing the top three in early returns were Johnny Verdugo, Kathy Salazar, Tavy Guzman, Annette Ramirez, Sally Torres and Larry Salazar.“I feel pretty good because we didn’t actually go after the absentee votes,” said Siccama. “Those votes probably were mailed out a month ago. I told my campaign team that my goal was to get 500 absentee votes.”Meanwhile, in Santa Fe Springs, all three incumbents in the Santa Fe Springs City Council race led one challenger for the three open seats, according to early returns.Incumbents Gus Velasco and Luis Gonzalez and challenger Michael Madrigal all endorsed one another during the campaign, in which the three sought to bring a Mexican-American majority to the council.But incumbent Betty Putnam took a softer approach, insisting the city needed at least one woman on the council. Early returns showed Putnam leading Gonzalez and Velasco for the three open seats, followed by Madrigal.In addition to helping each other with their campaigns, Velasco, Gonzalez and Madrigal had similar platforms. Safety issues such as hiring new police officers and increasing terrorism and emergency preparedness were key in their campaigns.“I have no response yet to the results because it’s too early,” said Gonzalez. “All four candidates are qualified.“We’re very close to each other in votes. It doesn’t include provisional. I would have liked to be on top. I’m sure Betty is happy. I’m cautiously optimistic.”The Pico Water District Board of Directors election was technically two elections in one. In the main race for three open seats, all three incumbents appeared to be winners against two challengers.But in a separate race for the unexpired term of Fred Silva, who died seven months ago, lone challenger Richard Briones appeared set for victory, according to early voting results.Juan Fred Silva Jr. was appointed to fill the position of director when his father, board director Fred Silva, died. In early returns, Briones led Juan Silva, who some claimed ran a lackluster campaign.In the other Pico water race, incumbent Andy Gonzalez was the apparent front-runner in early returns, followed by incumbents Antonio “Tony” Martinez and Sal Orozco. Jesus Barreras and Henrietta Salazar were the two challengers.The candidates focused on such issues as replacing aging pipelines in the district, increasing security at the wells and speeding up district projects to make sure they get finished.“I’m not happy or satisfied until final results are in,” said Gonzalez. “I’m just concerned that my fellow incumbents get in because we’ve been working together to bring the water district up to date.“If new people get in it will change quite a bit. I’m not counting anything yet. I just want to serve the people in the district, my constituents.” 698-0955, Ext. 3029last_img read more

Lobbying on in Odisha’s Biju Janata Dal for bypolls to three Rajya Sabha Seats

first_imgWith the Election Commission announcing July 5 as the date for conducting bypolls to three Rajya Sabha Seats in Odisha, hectic lobbying was under way in the ruling Biju Janata Dal, headed by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, sources in the Party said. Among the leaders vying for a Rajya Sabha ticket were: Former Bhubaneswar MP Prasanna Patsani, former Berhampur MLA Ramesh Chandra Chyau Patnaik, former bureaucrat Amar Patnaik and former Balasore MP Rabinda Jena, who lost the just-concluded polls. Senior BJD leader Prafulla Ghadai, who was expelled in 2014 and re-inducted in the run-up to the polls, was also one of the hopefuls, the sources said. Mr. Patsani, the former parliamentarian from Bhubaneswar, said, “I was assured a Rajya Sabha Berth after being denied a ticket to contest the Lok Sabha elections. I have full faith in the Chief Minister. He will make me a candidate for the Rajya Sabha polls.” Echoing similar sentiments, former legislator Chyau Patnaik also said he has been promised a Rajya Sabha Berth by the BJD president. The Seats fell vacant after the sitting BJD MPs resigned from their membership in the wake of their election to the Lok Sabha and the State Assembly. “Altogether, four Upper House Seats in the State have fallen vacant, following the resignation of MPs Achyuta Samanta, Soumya Ranjan Patnaik, P.K. Deb and Anubhav Mohanty, but the EC issued notices for three,” an official at the Assembly secretariat said. There will be no election in fourth Seat, vacated by Mr. Mohanty, as its tenure was about to end in a year, he added. While Mr. Samanta and Mr.Mohanty have been elected to Lok Sabha from Kandhamal and Kendrapara parliamentary seats respectively, Mr. Patnaik and Mr. Deb won the Assembly polls from Khandapada and Aul constituencies. All three vacant Seats are likely to be retained by the BJD, keeping in view the number of Seats the regional party has bagged in the recently held Assembly elections. The Naveen Patnaik-led Party has 111 MLAs in the 147-member House, while the BJP has 23 legislators, the Congress nine and the CPI(M) and an Independent one each. Two Assembly Seats – Patkura and Bijepur – remained vacant where polling will be held later. As one candidate in the Rajya Sabha bypoll would require the support of 38 MLAs to win, the BJD has adequate strength to secure all three Seats, the Party sources added.last_img read more
