ADVENTURE, CORENTYNE – The Region Six Administration has undertaken to rehabilitate a building at the Felix Austin Police College Division ‘B’ situated at Adventure on the Corentyne.Regional Chairman Zulfikar Mustapha indicated that the Regional Engineer Paul Luyken is in the process of preparing an estimate for work on the structure.The process began last Monday and so far it appears as though the figure should be in the vicinity of $3.5 million.Work is expected to get started within one month and be completed by June.According to Mr. Mustapha, late last year the Regional Administration expended some $2.6 million on restoring another block at the college which is now used as the staff quarters.Mr. Mustapha said that he had discussions with representatives of the Office of the President and is also encouraging private entities to contribute towards making the venture a success.According to Mr. Mustapha last year he approached the President of Guyana, Bharrat Jagdeo and he approved the last sum of $2.6 million, “Again I plan to approach him to get this $3.5 million. I am very optimistic that the President would approve this sum because of the interest he has been showing in helping to rebuild our security forces.”Commander of Division ‘B’ of the Guyana Police Force, Assistant Commission George Alexander Vyphuis indicated that plans are on the drawing board for the facility to have, inter alia, Kevin Love College Jersey, a computer laboratory, an officer for training instructors, and a gymnasium and also to offer a range of service to the community.Some individuals from the Central Corentyne Chamber of Commerce and other agencies were identified to be a part of an oversight committee for the college.He indicated that donations continue to roll in – last week the management of the Church View Hotel gave $10, 000. This week, the $400, 000, a freezer and a vehicle, promised to the facility by Commissioner of Police Henry Greene, are to be delivered.The Felix Austin Police College Division ‘B’ was re-commissioned on two Fridays ago and is now back in operation after some six years.Last week some 14 recruits are at the facility, they had commenced their training stint in Georgetown and were transferred to their home base.

– 42 city schools remain closed, more rains expected  The Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Leslie Ramsammy was caught at the crossroads. On the one hand, sections of the country were affected by yesterday’s flooding whilst farmers were demanding water for their crops.The dilemma was stated yesterday at a press briefing held at the Ministry of Agriculture. Dr. Ramsammy said that they expect more showers within the next 24 hours.Dr. Leslie RamsammyHe described yesterday’s rainfall as the most intense the country has ever recorded during a six-hour period. The heavy rains forced the closure of several private and public schools. Even businesses were forced to forfeit the day’s earnings as the flood waters crept into some stores.The Georgetown Magistrates’ Court on Middle Street was also closed as its entrance and holding cell were “ankle-high” with water.   Several streets were also covered while garbage floated around the city.Dr. Ramsammy said that the Hydro Meteorological Office noted a high pressure system over Bermuda which was dominant and forced the Inter-tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) to shift from its last position bringing it directly over the Guyana Coast.It brought in heavy rains, which the Minister said, could not have been predicted yesterday. The Botanical Gardens in Georgetown which is one of the measuring sites recorded 128.9 mm of rain in a six-hour period from 02:00 hours yesterday.According to the Agriculture Minister, the 128.9 mm is the most intense period of rain in the history of weather recording in Guyana.He said, “Indeed, we have never experienced that intensity which surprised me because I would have thought that the rains during the 2005 floods would have been the worse. However, this morning’s rainfall had an intensity of 21.5mm per hour, compared to 6.9mm per hour in 2005 and 5.9mm per hour in 2004.”In terms of flooding, more than 75 percent of Georgetown was affected by the floods.Regions Five and Six, the Minister said, reported low flooding but the struggle in those areas was ensuring the rice fields had water. In Region Five, there was a great need for water. The frontlands of Black Bush Polder are in a critical situation in terms of having adequate water. And this, the Minister said, created a dilemma, as they were faced with two situations; “floods and a drought.”While cloudy conditions are expected to continue over the city the heaviest rainfall over the next 12 hours is expected to be over Regions Two and Region Four, recording between 50mm and 100mm of rainfall.East Coast Demerara was not significantly affected.And the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority has been instructed to remove two excavators from the Hope Canal Project to clear priority outfall channels. The first outfall expected to be cleared will be Cottage, Mahaicony, Region Five.Meanwhile, flood warning remains in effect for areas along the Coast.“For Georgetown, we operate with seven pumps and all are controlled by the Municipality. Two of those pumps we assist in operating. These two are the Liliendaal and Kitty pumps. These are automatic pumps which require a certain amount of water in the reservoir.”“The other five pumps are also operated with collaborative assistance. We were informed yesterday morning that two pumps that are located at the mouth leading to the Demerara River are not working and the Municipality has requested our assistance. We have instructed the NDIA to help them and bring them into operation.”“The pumps at the Lamaha Canal and the one within the vicinity of the Guyana Forestry Headquarters are not working and we are trying to provide as much support as we can.”Dr. Ramsammy also disclosed to members of the media corps that during the flood there was a high tide and the two pumps which are not operating are critical to this situation. He said, “The channels and the sluices had to be closed as we have to determine why the two pumps aren’t working. We have sent engineers there and while in the past there were minor problems with these pumps, I don’t think that is the case now.”Also of note, is that the pump at Diamond, East Bank Demerara is not functioning properly but the Agriculture Minister has assured that it should be in operation today.But Mayor Hamilton Green said, “The flooding in the city has to do specifically with clogged drains and ensuring that canals are cleared regularly and, desilting of the main canal around Georgetown requires the use of trucks to remove the waste and sludge.However, Town Clerk Carol Sooba, refused to sign the cheques to have this system in place so that the canals can be desilted.”He explained that the garbage situation during the Christmas season is inevitable, thus the unauthorized move by the Town Clerk to have removed the contractor has led to the garbage build up in the city.He said, “In my 19 years of being at this council we have never had this situation before even during the great flood in 2005.”However, Mayor Green explained that work is underway to clear the flooded areas.Meanwhile, in light of the unforeseen weather, the Guyana Power and Light has implemented several initiatives in an effort to moderate the likelihood of network faults.And members of the Opposition are questioning how effective are the “so-called” irrigation and drainage projects since the same problem continues to remain a problem year after year.Reference was made to the Agricultural Diversification Programme (ADP), Discount NFL Jerseys, a component aimed at improving drainage and irrigation.It was also highlighted that a number of pump stations which were done under the programme are not completed by their initial deadlines.Minister Ramsammy said that the contractor, who was blazed for lagging behind on the $237M Patentia Pump station, is still moving slowly as the pump has not been installed as yet.The 2012 budget had said that Government expended $7.1 billion on drainage and irrigation systems across the country whilst in the 2013 budget, a total of $6.5 billion was budgeted for the final payments towards the acquisition of fixed irrigation pumps, the construction and rehabilitation of pumps and pump stations in Regions Three, Four, Five and Six.

Police yesterday remained baffled by the gruesome killings of two women and a man, whose bodies were found near the Kitty seawalls and at Turkeyen and Annandale within a five-day span.Alicia AliDetectives are also taking note of the fact that two of the victims—29 year-old, Ramesh Katarnauth and 14-year-old Alicia Ali—were both apparently beaten before being drowned.Police had initially suspected that the 14-year-old Campbellville Secondary School student had taken her own life, after finding a suicide note in her bedroom on Thursday. In the note, which appeared to be addressed to Maylene Williams, the teen’s mother, Alicia Ali accused her mother of restricting her movements. The teen also reportedly stated that by the time her mother read the letter, she (Alicia) “would be dead.”But a pathologist who conducted a postmortem on the teen’s remains yesterday gave the cause of death as asphyxia due to drowning, compounded by compression injury to the neck and blunt trauma to the head. Kaieteur News understands that the pathologist found no evidence of sexual assault.Some investigators have suggested that Ali may have wandered to the seawalls in her suicidalRamesh Katarnauthstate and encountered someone who killed her. They have questioned several people, including a boyfriend of the slain schoolgirl.Ali’s body was discovered on the seawall near Annandale, East Coast Demerara on Wednesday. She was last seen by her mother, around 20:50 hours on Tuesday, when she left her home to go to a nearby shop.An official said that detectives are looking at “all possibilities, ” including the similarities in Ali’s murder and that of Sandy Babb Street, Kitty resident Ramesh Katarnauth.A postmortem showed that Katernauth died from asphyxiation due to drowning. He also sustained injuries to the neck and blunt trauma to parts of the body.Katarnauth reportedly left home around 21:30 hours on Saturday to buy a pack of cigarettes but failed to return to his 83 Sandy Babb Street, Kitty, home.Yesterday, police were still trying to identify the woman whose dismembered remains were found on the seawall near Annandale, East Coast Demeara.The woman’s body minus the head, feet and arms, was discovered by a resident who was about to bathe his dog at the location.The clothing, Josh Rosen UCLA Jersey, a blue brassiere and a red skirt, was rolled up around the midsection of the corpse.There were bloodstains and tooth fragments not far from where the body was lodged between the rocks.A religious artifact and a blood-stained rice bag were also discovered some distance away, yesterday morning.According to investigators, the woman’s body appeared to have been dumped there recently. There was also conjecture that she had been butchered at the foreshore.
