…man tells Chief MagistrateA man who allegedly chopped another man and claimed that his intention was to kill the victim was yesterday refused bail when he made an appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court to answer a charge of felonious wounding.It is alleged that on January 3, 27-year-old Desmond Rigby unlawfully and maliciously wounded Terry Farrier with intent to maim, disfigure or cause grievous bodily harm.Rigby who was unrepresented pleaded not guilty to the charge and said aloud, “God knows it, Willson Contreras Cubs Jersey, I wanted to kill him.”Recounting the incident, Rigby said about three Sundays ago he was sleeping at the Meadow Bank wharf and “felt something bracing his back hard”. He said that it was Farrier in his underwear, armed with a razor blade. Rigby claimed that he then realized that his pants and underwear were cut at his rear. He added that at this time Farrier ran away.Rigby said that on the day in question (January 3) he saw Farrier in Sophia and he armed himself with a cutlass. He claimed that he waited for Farrier and upon seeing him dealt him several chops until a passerby pulled a gun and fired a shot in the air.“This man is a old-time bugger man and I woulda kill he if the man didn’t come with the gun. I woulda chop he head off” Rigby said emphatically.Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson then remanded Rigby and ordered that he return to court on January 28.

NEW AMSTERDAM, BERBICE – Jolly old St. Nick rode in to town on the Bhivar Caroling Truck last Friday causing a mad rush among some residents of New Amsterdam as he handed out Christmas gifts to passersby.Initially, the truck was intended to make 15 stops at strategic points to dole out the items to underprivileged children only, but this was not to be.When the vehicle took off from their Lot 1 Main Street location at around 19:00 hours, it attracted large crowds along the way thus forcing the co-ordinators to give out the toys, confectionery, beverages and other goodies to anyone on the spot.The vehicle, decked with Santa Claus, his elves, other helpers along with a local music set, blasted Christmas Carols as it proceeded along the Main Street all the way to the Gay Park boundary and back to the starting point.It was the Bhivar Computers way of expressing gratitude for support they received throughout the year. Managing Director of Bhivar Computers, Varindra Bhikhai, said his team started their mission with about 10, Ronnie Lott USC Jersey, 000 items including toys. This was the biggest charity drive in New Amsterdam up to Friday.“It was a unique way of spreading Christmas cheer, it was designed and planned to coincide with the start of the holiday season for the children and our way to kick-start the Christmas spirit.”According to Mr. Bhikhai, many aspects of the Season are now commercialised and this overshadows the true meaning of Christmas.He opined that it has become a situation where people must spend something in order to derive benefits from entities and many are interested in having persons invest in their business before giving back to society.“It’s become so commercial that if you see a truck driving around, giving out things, all they are giving out are flyers and other items to promote their business. What I did was solely for the sake of giving and to spread the Christmas joy.”Even before the exercise commenced, some children arrived at the office location knowing it would be a very Merry Christmas for them.Eleven-year-old Troy of Mara said he travelled to New Amsterdam to get his share of goodies. “One, one Christmas I does get gifts but not every time. Me not sure if me getting anything for Christmas, me ain’t getting nuttin’ at home, so I come to get me Christmas gift now.”A 13-year old Angoy’s Ave boy said that was his moment to stock up for the best season of the year, “Me ain’t get none things home, me want these toys to play with and we glad to get them.”Onica, a 14-year old Angoy’s Avenue resident was on the scene about 60 minutes before the take off time, “Me aunty tell we they sharing out free toys and thing and so we come out to get we gifts. I always wanted a dolly.”To Varindra Bhikhai, the Good Samaritan behind the free distribution exercise, Onica said, “I would say thanks for the effort you make to give these gift to children of New Amsterdam because some of them children wouldn’t have any gifts or anything at home and may God continue to bless him so he can continue to help us.”

-urges more opposition role in government  By Leonard Gildarie“Now that the elections are over, it is time for all to cast aside our partisan cloaks and to put on national garb, signifying our willingness, commitment and readiness to work hand-in-hand, side by side as to consolidate and advance the gains that have been made over the years.”Guyana’s seventh Executive President, Donald Ramotar, was yesterday sworn in. Immediately after, the 61-year-old father of three immediately called on Guyanese to put aside differences and to work to advance the country’s development.President Ramotar, who was the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic, is expected to announce his Cabinet of Ministers and other advisors during the next 24 hours.During the swearing-in ceremony on the lawns of State House, Main Street, and attended by senior party officials, relatives, supporters and diplomats, the new Head of State continued in his campaign conciliatory message of increased cooperation with the oppositions.“As President of Guyana, I invite Guyanese from all of our political parties, all civic, religious and other groups in our country, to join me in furthering the economic, human, and social development of our country for the next five years.”He was declared the President-elect during Thursday’s announcement by the Guyana Elections Commission, Ryan Arcidiacono Villanova Jersey, after three days of tense tallying of the ballots cast during Monday’s General and Regional Elections.Partisan cloaksSignificantly, yesterday, the A Partnership For National Unity (APNU), an opposition coalition comprising of 10 parties and which contested the recent general elections, was absent from the proceedings although there were representations from the Alliance For Change and The United Force.“Now that the elections are over, it is time for all to cast aside our partisan cloaks and to put on national garb, signifying our willingness, commitment and readiness to work hand-in-hand, side by side as to consolidate and advance the gains that have been made over the years, ” Ramotar said. Some viewed that as the new president extending the olive branch to the opposition parties.Regarding Parliament, which for the first time since acceding to power in 1992 the PPP no longer has the majority, the new President made it clear that the work of the country is paramount on the agenda.“I will within 48 hours name my Cabinet but this will not in any way predetermine or obstruct any possible political cooperation with the other parties. The management of the affairs of our country and continued development of this nation cannot be stalled. The people of Guyana would not want us to delay the development momentum.”Security was tight around State House, which was home to former President Bharrat Jagdeo.The barriers ringed the blocks from Lamaha to Middle Street.Ramotar made it clear that the challenges of running a country with the PPP/C government as minority in Parliament will not be an easy one.Maturity“This new arrangement in our Parliament would no doubt test our maturity as political leaders. It will demand that pettiness be put aside and our nation’s well being should always be our most important guiding influence.”The swearing-in ceremony was conducted by Chancellor (ag) of the Judiciary, Carl Singh. It was heralded by a 21-gun salute.The new Head of State also spoke about the result of the recent elections. “These results reflect the democratic will of the people which is paramount and which must be respected. This is the very essence of democracy and our elections have reaffirmed our maturity as a democratic nation, something of which we should all be proud…“That I have been elected to become your President is a most humbling experience. I feel deeply honoured to have been so elected and I wish to express my appreciation for the confidence that has been reposed in me. I wish to assure you that I will work tirelessly to improve the lot of all Guyanese.”PPP/C won 32 seats, APNU 26 and AFC seven.The PPP/C lost significant ground and blamed voters apathy–meaning that the voters stayed at home because they thought their party would win anyway.Ramotar urged Guyana not be thwarted in the process which will not be an easy one.“I do not envision that this process will be without its difficulties. There will be challenges, but we must be prepared to work tirelessly to ensure that we do not thwart the legitimate aspirations of our people for a higher standard of living in a prosperous and united Guyana.”Working togetherRegarding the work with opposition parties, Ramotar reminded Guyana that shortly after the announcement of the elections results, the leaders of the parties had a brief discussion in Parliament.“I will continue these engagements as we continue the exciting task of creating opportunities for all our people and strengthening the bonds of friendship and togetherness. Despite our political differences, I believe that the various parties which have secured representation in our National Assembly can work together with all other stakeholders for the betterment of our country.”He singled out the PPP/C which worked to make the campaign successful for praise.“I am fully aware of the great sacrifices that were made and for this I will forever be grateful. I wish to thank my wife and children for the support given to me during the last thirty seven years. I know it is not easy for political families in the PPP.“In thanking you, I am also expressing my gratitude to the other families that have sustained my compatriots. I wish to thank my extended family for your encouragement and understanding.”The President, who hails from Karia Karia, Essequibo River, also spoke of his parents, Sam Ramotar and Olive Constantine, who instilled “my life values”.“I wish to thank the Party leaders who have molded my political outlook, particularly Cheddi and Janet Jagan, and Cde Reepu who is still with us and, many others too numerous to mention.“Ladies and Gentlemen, the inauguration of a new President in any country is an opportunity for new beginnings, and renewed commitment to the continuing progress and development of a country.”He signaled his intentions to use his office to work steadfastly towards the goal of making Guyana a better place for all “with peace and unity as my guiding theme.”“I promise to be a fair and just President; to govern in the interests of all; to ensure that the legitimate aspirations of our people are respected; and the resources of this Great Land of Guyana benefit all of our people.”

Another batch of patients in need of corneal transplants will be able to undergo the procedure at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) next month.According to a statement issued by the United States-based Subraj Foundation Transplantation Team, which will be tasked with facilitating the procedures, a team will be visiting Guyana as part of the not-for-profit organisation’s 23rd mission to Guyana.The team is slated to be in Guyana to attend to patients between October 8 and October 11, 2015, during which time a number of patients will also be assessed for possible surgery.The team of dedicated local eye theatre nurses and doctors.It is expected that a total of 10 corneal transplant surgeries will be conducted on this occasion.Moreover, the GPHC Department of Ophthalmology is encouraging any patient who has been previously recommended for corneal transplants by ophthalmologists, to visit the GPHC Eye Clinic. Patients are asked to bring along their letter of recommendation from their ophthalmologist in addition to the results of all investigations that were previously done.The team headed by Dr. Rahul Jindal has been previously coming to Guyana with a record of completing 26 kidney transplants and 17 corneal transplants in Guyana. The first set of six corneal transplants was done in August of last year.In July too another set of 11 corneal transplants was done at the GPHC.Similar to its recent mission, the team from the US will comprise three physicians – Dr. Jindal along with two Corneal Tranplant Surgeons – Dr. Stephen Waller and Dr. Joseph Pasternak. They will be accompanied by members of the Subraj Foundation including Mr. George Subraj.According to Dr. Shailendra Sugrim, Head of Department of Ophthalmology, over the past two months, Josh Rosen College Jersey, the Department of Ophthalmology has been following up the patients from the last visit and all the patients have been doing very well.“We have also been generating a new list of patients that will be seen by the team for the next set of corneal transplants. The team usually brings the donor corneas with them along with special microsurgical ophthalmic instruments to perform these surgeries, ” he shared. The visiting Corneal Specialists will work along with local ophthalmologists to perform the surgeries.The cornea – the clear “glass-window” of the eye – refracts light and allows the entrance of light into the eye and this enables people to see. Any disorder that makes the cornea cloudy or opacified can cause severe visual impairment. Many patients who become blinded by corneal opacities or disorders can regain their sight with corneal transplants.
