Last Mother’s Day was probably one of the worst days in the lives of 76-year-old Doris Thomas and her children of Victoria, East Coast Demerara.On that day, their wooden house which rested on stilts came crashing down, and although to the naked eye it appears habitable, no one will want to endure the suffering they have had to endure as a result of the mishap.One of the occupants of the fallen house Nicola McDonald.Thomas, the matriarch of the family, has been bedridden for the past two years, while her daughter Nichola McDonald, a diabetic, has been a double amputee since 2001. Another daughter lost one of her legs as a result of the same complaint.Apart from the disabled Thomas and her amputee daughters, NFL Cheap Jerseys China, the house shelters five others, mostly children.On Mother’s Day, the family was asleep when the house crashed to the ground. Thankfully no one was hurt although there was significant damage to most of their household equipment.Since then, the family has been seeking refuge in a relative’s house by day only to have to return to their treacherous house at nights.Their worst fear is that the structure, which is resting precariously on the ground, would disintegrate and seriously injure someone especially the incapacitated occupants.“But what we gon do? We don’t have anywhere else.All the flooring break up, ” McDonald told this newspaper.She added that even the foodstuff they had in the house had to be discarded since it was littered with broken glass.Unable to work, the occupants have been left in a desperate situation.Although the family has not yet approached any agency to seek assistance, the members are appealing through this newspaper for donations to at least purchase some materials to rectify their dwelling.A group of villagers has already pledged to provide the labour should the materials be made available.“The roof is not proper. When it rains, we have to get tubs and basins to catch the water, ” said McDonald who moves around in a wheelchair.

There is the adage that “olden is golden” but in this case it can be taken in its literal context since one of  the vehicles on display at the Demerara Mutual Vintage Car Exhibition attracted a whopping US4 million offer from American collectors trading in China.Kaieteur News was advised by the owner of the antique vehicle McLearen Pemberton, 80, a retired Mechanical Engineer that the offer was made three months ago for his 1959 Humber Hawk by two Americans who wanted to take the model to China.A 1924 Rolls Royce from GuySucoPemberton informed that he bought the car, which was manufactured by DeRousse Motor Company London, England, from the Anglican Diocese on the 17th of July 1980.According to Pemberton the previous owner of the vehicle was the late Arch Bishop of the West Indies Sir Allen John Knight.The vehicle has a gasoline four cylinder 1922cc horsepower engine with a manual gear box and has a carburetor and standard ignition system.Pemberton proudly said at the exhibition, Roger Clemens Red Sox Jersey, which was held last Saturday at the Demerara Mutual Fire and Life Insurance Company Robb Street and Avenue of the Republic location, that he “bought this car for the sum of $5000.” Of course in those days $5000 was a mini fortune.The car, the man said, was then restored by him, a process that took two years and culminated in November of 1982. “I’ve got it in my garage all the time. I am a collector of cars. I love auto cars, ” said the Mechanical Engineer, who added that he kept the car because he was part of the Anglican Diocese.Some of the other vehicles at the ExhibitionHe said that Guyanese should follow what he is doing and exhibit to the wide world the type of restoration and quality work that Guyanese mechanics could put out. Pemberton told this publication that he has about 40 different models of classics, since that is all he deals with and he said that he would never consider putting a price on his vehicles.“I have never thought of putting a price on my cars. If I tell you something, you would not believe; I was offered four Million US dollars for this car three months ago by two American guys who want to buy it to take the model into China. I said I don’t want it, I don’t need money. What are you going to do with it? It’s paper pack up high.”The man said that there are quite a few cars that overseas buyers want to buy from him, “but I told them I am not interested in selling. When I sell it, what will I pass down to my grandchildren?” he related.According to Melissa De Santos, Legal Officer for Demerara Mutual Life Insurance Society, who is currently acting as Operations Manager for Demerara Fire and General, the first Vintage car exhibition was held in October last year and they plan to make it an annual event.Pemberton’s 1959 Humber Hawk“What everybody is saying is that this one is a bit fast on the heels of the other one, but people have expressed interest in bringing their cars, that’s why we put it on so early. We will decide on a date that will be fixed and every year we will have it. The idea really is to have an awareness of the company but also to give people an avenue to display their cars because you have Car and Bike Shows but not vintage.”She said that there are quite a lot of Guyanese with vintage cars who don’t have the opportunity to showcase them.“A lot of response so far from people is that they have a lot of Vintage cars but they are fixing them up, so every year we will keep getting more cars.”

… Slain KN pressmen PI Yesterday, the two remaining accused who have been charged for the murder of five Kaieteur News pressmen in August 2006, made yet another court appearance.The duo, Dwight Da Silva and Quincy Evans, made their appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, before Magistrate Nigel Hawke.Prior to yesterday’s hearing in the Preliminary Inquiry, the men appeared in court on Thursday when the Magistrate ordered that the case be closed, since the three remaining witnesses in the matter failed to show up on several occasions.The three witnesses, Troy Bachan, Mark Benjamin and Rickford Selman were called to the stand to give evidence on several occasions but never turned up in court.This was the reason given by Magistrate Hawke for closing the matter. During yesterday’s hearing the lawyer representing the duo, Compton Richardson, made an oral submission to the court.During his submission the lawyer pointed out that a Prima Facie case has not been made out against his clients on the grounds that there is no evidence to establish an essential ingredient of the charges. Richardson pointed out that there is no evidence, be it direct or circumstantial, showing that the murders were committed by the duo, nor is there any evidence that either of the two were present at the time the offence was committed.“The eyewitness, who testified to the shooting of Richard Stewart and the others, never at any point identified Evans as being one of the persons who entered the premises where the shooting took place, ” Richardson said.He added that when Evans was arrested for the murders and the allegations were put to him he was cautioned by an officer and his reply to the officer was “I didn’t kill anybody”.“That alone is a clear denial by Evans of any involvement by him in any one of the killings and that statement does not say that he was present at the time of the killing, ” Richardson stated.“I respectfully submit that there is not a slightest shred of evidence that Evans was in anyway connected to the killings”.Richardson further submitted to the court that evidence put forward by the prosecution can not establish that Evans played any role in the murders. He further asked the court to take into consideration the fact that a Preliminary Inquiry is to ensure that one is not committed to stand trial in the High Court, unless there is reasonable evidence.“I urge the court to discharge the matter under Section 69 of the Criminal Offences Act Chapter 10; 01” Richardson said.Meanwhile, in his submission for the matter to be discharged against Da Silva, Richardson said there again was no evidence linking him to the killings as well.Richardson asked that the Court carefully read through two statements which have been admitted into evidence relating to Da Silva’s involvement.He further explained to the court that according to statements given by the accused, he told investigators he was involved in an incident at Bagotstown and after that he left and went home, the same night when the pressmen were killed.“Sergeant Gravesande under cross examination told the court that Da Silva did say that after leaving Bagotstown on the night of the Kaieteur News killings he went home…so there is no evidence by the prosecutor to contradict what Da Silva said about his whereabouts that night, Jon Singleton Astros Jersey, ”According to Richardson, Da Silva did however tell an investigator that it was the following morning when one ‘Tallman” came to him and gave him $5, 000 telling him “Dem boys send this fuh yuh; dem boys went in Kaieteur News at Eccles rob dem people and den kill dem, ”.“My Worship what Da Silva said in his statement is also hearsay evidence, and that in itself is inadmissible…what is in that statement is admission to two other incidents at Bagotstown, but nothing regarding the killings at Kaieteur News, ” Richardson said.Meanwhile, the matter has been put down for next Tuesday (September 8) when the prosecution is expected to make its final submission.
