Mother calls for full investigation into son’s death

first_imgHighway resort tragedyThe mother of the late 18-year-old Ronaldo Gomes, called “Naldo,” is calling for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding her son’s tragic death on Saturday during an outing at a private resort on the Linden/Soesdyke Highway.The lifeless body of the former student of both the Business School and School of the Nations was pulled from the black water almost two hours after he had gone missing. When pulled from the water, it was discovered that the teen’s face was disfigured, and upon enquiring, relatives were told that he had come into contact with a jet-ski earlier in the day. Although that had been the case, the rider of the jet-ski had not reported the incident. It was not until a search had been launched for the teen that someone reportedly told personnel at the resort that the teen hadDead teen: Ronaldo Gomescome into contact with one of the jet-skis.Guyana Times understands that the teenager’s body was recovered at the same spot where he had been struck by the jet-ski.At his home on Monday, the late teenager’s mother, Paula Williams, told Guyana Times she had last spoken with her late teenage son on Saturday morning, when he informed her that he was not working; but at no time during the conversation did he say he was going to the creek.“He went to the creek with a cousin… I was told it was an outing to celebrate a child’s 5th birthday, so definitely there was no alcohol… At about 4:30pm (16:30h), his cousin went to buy some ice for the party, and when he come back, Naldo ask him to take a swim, but he (Naldo) was told that it was late and they were about to leave,” the woman stated. He (Naldo) nevertheless persuaded his cousin to allow him to take “one final swim”.However, at about 17:00h, when everyone else had boarded the bus, the late teen’s cousin enquired about him, but was told he had gone to take a swim.Guyana Times was told that persons disembarked the bus and started to search for the teen, but there was no sign of him. At the time, there was reportedly no personnel at the resort to assist them in their search, and as such, the driver went to make a missing person’s report at the nearby Police station.While there, he received a telephone call from someone, informing him that his cousin’s body had been found. “His face, neck and arm were injured…that is no drowning…the person who hit him with the boat drove away and left him to die,” the mother told this publication.She is adamant that the person who had been driving the jet-ski had not been sufficiently alert. ‘If you are in a boat driving, and it hits even a coconut shell, the driver will know he hit something…,” she added.“What is more worrying too, is the fact that when an alarm was raised that my son was missing, there were no life guards and workers of the resort present to help look for him,” the aggrieved mother noted.The Police, she explained, have not gotten back to the family, but would have indicated that they could not do anything until the post mortem is conducted. That procedure is slated for Wednesday at the Georgetown Public Hospital.Williams has said she would await the results of the autopsy to determine the way forward, but she is convinced that her son did not die by drowning; and even if that had been the case, it was the injuries from the Jet Ski hit that had caused him to drown.The dead teen, a lover of dogs, has been described as a jovial, well-mannered sport fanatic. He leaves to mourn his parents and four siblings.last_img read more

Dromedary Deputy Bert loves kids, elderly, Skittles

first_imgAt nearly 7 feet tall and 1,800 pounds, Deputy Bert is unlike any other law enforcement officer. And with sheriff’s ID around his neck and a badge on his harness, Deputy Bert is unlike any other camel. Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-ranking law enforcement camel on the planet, sheriff’s Deputy Bert is part of a menagerie of animals employed by Los Angeles County – and one of the public’s favorites. “The kids just flock to him,” sheriff’s Sgt. Larry Wineinger said. “He’s our No. 1 crowd pleaser.” Deputized four years ago, Bert – along with his handler, Sheriff’s Posse Reserve Deputy Nance Fite – shows up at community events and in parades, where he and Fite reinforce safety and anti-drug messages. “I don’t know if it’s his big, friendly eyes or his curiosity,” said Fite, who works out of the Sheriff’s Department’s San Dimas station. “He zeroes right in, smelling their hair because hair is a greeting to camels. Then he goes right for their hands to see if the kids have treats he can mooch. He loves Skittles.” While Bert’s primary function is community relations, the county relies on scores of other animals for more practical uses. Canine units check county jails for contraband alcohol, sniff for explosives in subways, help capture criminal suspects and search for victims of natural disasters. Each spring, goats are put out to graze on the county’s vast open spaces, controlling vegetation and reducing the fire hazard. Horses are used by deputies on search-and-rescue missions and to patrol parks, trails and shopping centers and for crowd control. Plethora of animals Bison, birds, snakes, spiders and other creatures are housed at seven county nature centers where they are used to teach the public to respect wildlife. “Animals are a vital part of the county team,” spokeswoman Judy Hammond said. “They help us do a better job in many areas, performing tasks that we cannot. … People respond to animals, so they are a great way to brighten the lives of the sick and elderly, as well as children.” Costs for the menagerie are difficult to estimate because each department budgets and pays for its own animals, officials said. But it’s not cheap. Deputy Bert consumes about 20 pounds of hay a day; the tab for his care and feeding is picked up by Fite. Supporters argue that the lessons and opportunities the animals provide far outweigh the costs. Haven for children Some 8,000 to 12,000 children a year visit the county’s environmental education centers, including Placerita Canyon in Newhall, Vasquez Rocks in Agua Dulce and Eaton Canyon in Pasadena. Each center has 15 to 40 animals. “Kids can touch a snake for the first time,” said Mickey Long, the county’s natural areas administrator. “Or we can at least show them a rattlesnake so they can learn to recognize them and be careful.” But the star of the county’s animal ark is Deputy Bert, a dromedary camel born March 3, 1997, at a ranch in Escondido. Fite, a reserve horse trainer with the Sheriff’s Department since 1984, fell in love with “the big guys” two decades ago when she worked with camels in Easter and Christmas productions at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove. “I saw him when he was 8days old, and it was kind of like I had to buy him,” Fite said. “I started taking him to parades when he was 7months old, and he just became so well accepted that they turned him into a mascot in San Dimas.” In 2003, a crime-prevention officer at the San Dimas station decided it was time to deputize the camel. Sheriff Lee Baca signed his official identification card, and Deputy Bert was sworn in during a festival. The department even printed Deputy Bert collectors cards, which note that he’s friendly with people but hates the rain. It wasn’t long before Guinness World Records came calling, inquiring about the camel’s duties and how he fits into the department hierarchy. “Although he stands head and shoulders above the rest of our personnel, he is a `rookie’ reserve deputy with very limited police powers,” Wineinger responded. “Deputy Bert, thus far, seems to have quite a positive reaction with the kids, and we feel that is nothing to spit at.” Celebrity status Since being certified as the world’s highest-ranking camel, Bert has appeared in movies, TV shows and documentaries in the U.S. and around the world. He may also march in the Tournament of Roses in January. Deputy Bert’s ancestors may be an unusual sight in Southern California today; his ancestors first appeared in North America 40 million years ago. About 5 million years ago, they migrated over the land bridge to Asia. But they returned to America in the 1800s at the urging of Jefferson Davis, the Confederate president who noted that camels could pack more gear and go longer without food and water than horses. “Camels were used for the road surveying from Texas into California,” Fite said. “It was 1857 when Lt. (Edward Fitzgerald) Beale brought 25 camels from Fort Defiance through the Mojave Valley and down into downtown Los Angeles. This October is the 150th anniversary.” In addition to educating kids about the noted history of camels, Deputy Bert also has a soft spot in his heart for sick children. He recently visited the oncology ward at Miller Children’s Hospital at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. “One of the little kids was in a wheelchair,” Fite said. “They wheeled him up with all his IVs and stuff. (Deputy Bert) put his head in the little boy’s lap. He made the boy’s mother and the nurses cry because the little boy had not made a sound in a month. “(Deputy Bert) was just like a statue. It was like he knew. Maybe that was the one day he was put here for – to make that little boy smile and giggle.” troy.anderson@dailynews.com (213) 974-8985160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

No sodas, red meat, sausages: Djibouti coach goes tough

first_imgA point against Somalia and a shock win against Burundi have put them only one win away from a last four slot and if they beat third placed Eritrea on Friday, then they are all sure of getting into the semis.“We have a final against Eritrea and we will go all out to try and win and achieve an objective,” said Julien Mette, the 37-year old French tactician who has been leading the slow but sure revolution of Djibouti football since he joined in June.And it is not just at the senior challenge that they have shown their mettle, but they have qualified for the first time ever to compete in the group stages of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.Djibouti players line up before their 2019 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup opening match against Somalia on December 7, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluIn total, Mette has overseen 10 matches already, winning four, drawing a similar number and losing two.The Frenchman, who has never played competitive football before has disclosed to Capital Sport the raft of changes he made to ensure the team becomes better.“In Europe where I studied for almost 13 years, diet is very important. One of the first things I did is forbid some foods; soda is forbidden in our team, white sugar, no sausages or processed foods, no red meat, only fish and chicken. We are very tough and I put a lot of discipline in the diet,” the tactician stated.Djibouti taking on Burundi during their 2019 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup opening match at the Lugogo Complex in Kampala, Uganda on December 11, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“We have added a bit more on the carbohydrates. We eat of pasta, rice and a lot of fruits and water,” he added.It has been evident in their two matches so far, especially looking at their endurance over 90 minutes against a physical team like Burundi. On top of the diet, the tactician stated that he had to also do lots of mind training.“We know that we are not strong and we don’t have lots of muscles and it will take years to build that. We have worked on how we can make runs, sprints and press for 90 minutes. My training is really tough. The first thing I also did was change their mentality. You know if the mind says the muscle can’t do it then it can’t. But if we can change the mentality we can change the player,” he added.Having built up a team mostly made up of players who are 23 years and under, Mette sees a bright future for Djibouti. He says they will have a realistic chance to fight for qualification to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.0Shares0000(Visited 75 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Djibouti coach Julien Mette before their 2019 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup opening match against Somalia on December 7, 2019.

Bolton chairman Ken Anderson reveals relegated club closing in on new boss

first_img Bolton players look dejected during another defeat Bolton’s search for a new manager is well underway, chairman Ken Anderson has revealed.Jimmy Phillips has been in interim charge since Neil Lennon left the club last month, but Bolton’s relegation from the Championship was confirmed by Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Derby.Bolton are now facing life in the third tier of English football for the first time since 1993 after a season of turmoil at the Macron Stadium.The Trotters faced a winding-up order from HMRC over unpaid taxes, changed ownership and are currently working under a Football League transfer embargo.Bolton have won only four league games all season but Anderson has urged supporters to “stick together” with the club now under the ownership of the Sports Shield group.“It’s now time to look forward, not back,” Anderson said in a statement on the official Bolton website.“Whilst this continues to be an extremely challenging and difficult time for us all, it is imperative that we stick together and believe that we will come out the other side a better and stronger football club.“Bolton Wanderers have a fantastic history and a loyal fan base. We very much have to look to put any past differences behind us, embrace everything that we have going for us and move forward together.“I understand that words can only mean so much at this moment in time and that we, the new board, will ultimately be judged on our actions.“We’re not shying away from that fact and we accept that there are going to be a lot of difficult decisions to make, both on and off the pitch, as we prepare for life in the third tier.”One of the pressing issues for the new board is to find a new manager and Anderson said over 50 applications for the vacancy have been reduced to single numbers.“I personally have already had a high level of applicants for the job,” said Anderson.“We have had over 50 applications, which shows just in how much high regard our club is held.“That list has been whittled down to single figures and our process of interviewing the candidates is already well under way.“We want to hit the ground running next season, which is why we are getting these building blocks in place.“We want to roll our sleeves up and be positive right from the off, play an attractive style of football and really take the game to our opponents.“We’re working tirelessly to try and get the transfer embargo lifted – that is obviously paramount in our planning.“We also have a number of key relationships and agreements in place with teams in the top flight with an eye on what we can possibly do in the loan market.“This is a fresh start for us all. We’ve been working on this plan for some time – we’re now in the process of putting it into action.“There is a lot of hard work ahead and we have to be on this journey together.” 1last_img read more

NFL’s only choice may come down to Coliseum

first_img Glat is scheduled to provide owners an update on the proposals in Anaheim and the Coliseum this afternoon, followed by a discussion on how the ownership search should proceed and whether a team or teams would come via expansion or relocation. Leading those talks, Glat said, will be the owners committee on Los Angeles, which is headed by Tagliabue. It also includes Pittsburgh owner Dan Rooney, New England owner Bob Kraft, Carolina owner Jerry Richardson, Miami owner Wayne Huizinga and Kansas City owner Lamar Hunt. They met on a conference call Thursday. “The emphasis on process and timing will be a change from what they’ve heard in the past,” Glat said Friday. “The last time (in May 2005) was on the pros and cons on each site and the progress of stadium negotiations. Now there will be a much more focused discussion on when and how decisions can be made. They’ll be presented clear options and proposed time frames.” At his retirement announcement, Tagliabue also emphasized Los Angeles is a priority. He is planning a visit to Los Angeles in late April and perhaps again in May, and expects the league to reach a decision at its May 22-23 meeting in Denver. Still, the question remains whether the NFL can close that quickly on a process that has dragged on for three years. ORLANDO, Fla. – A year ago, the NFL was considering four sites to build a stadium in Los Angeles. Soon, it could be down to one, if Anaheim follows the lead of Pasadena and Carson, and looks for something else to do with its time and money. That could leave the National Football League with one option – the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum – which in the laborious, labyrinthine process of returning pro football to Los Angeles, might just constitute progress. NFL owners have paid little attention to Los Angeles in the past year, focusing on new television, labor and revenue-sharing agreements. Now, with those cleared from the agenda, the issue that will garner the most attention at the NFL annual meeting, which runs today through Wednesday, will be the search for a new commissioner after Paul Tagliabue’s announcement last week that he would retire this summer. Nevertheless, NFL vice president for strategic planning Neil Glat, the league’s point person on Los Angeles, said in the wake of the recent agreements on collective bargaining and revenue sharing, the NFL is ready to move quickly toward a resolution on a stadium site in Los Angeles. Many owners know little of what has been discussed in Anaheim and Exposition Park, and it’s unclear whether they’ll feel compelled to act by May, especially when there is the business of selecting a new commissioner. Also uncertain is how they would respond if Tagliabue prods them; would they still follow his lead or view him as a lame duck? “Los Angeles is ‘not a day-to-day’ issue,” the Patriots’ Kraft said Sunday, “and ‘is really the responsibility of the next commissioner.”‘ However, Kraft did say a decision on a stadium could be made by the end of May. In Anaheim, leaders are growing impatient. “Where there’s a will, there’s a way,” Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle said. Tired of what he views as foot-dragging in negotiations, City Manager Dave Morgan has informed the league that if a decision is not reached by that meeting, Anaheim will begin soliciting bids for the 50-acre parcel adjacent to Angel Stadium. Another sign of the city’s impatience is that it has withdrawn an offer to allow the NFL to purchase an option on the land if it isn’t ready to commit just yet. This was seen as a way to accommodate the NFL if it wanted two stadiums in the Los Angeles area, but was only prepared to commit to the Coliseum for now. Also, Anaheim now is requiring that the NFL purchase all 50 acres, rather than eight to 10 acres, on which to build a stadium and options on the remaining property, a proposal the league put forth. “We no longer want to be in a position where through an option, we’d be waiting three, four, five years for a decision,” said Pringle, who had expected a decision within 10 months when the NFL approached his city in July 2004. “We’ve been very honest brokers. We’ve been interested, patient and eager, but we’ve also been sitting for a couple of years. We want to move forward. We’re not a city that sits around and you can deal with other potential venues for 20-30 years. We’d love for the NFL to be a part of that, but if they’re not, so be it.” Time is a concern in Los Angeles, too. While the Coliseum isn’t going anywhere and most of the terms of the deal have been agreed upon, there still are a number of details to be worked out. These include building and operating permits that must be obtained from the city, an agreement between the NFL and the University of Southern California, and cooperation among stakeholders that range from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to the Natural History Museum to city, county and state politicians. “I can’t even begin to tell you how many of those documents and tasks are left,” said Coliseum General Manager Pat Lynch, who is attending the meetings with commission member Bernard Parks, Coliseum Director of Development Charlie Isgar and consultant Rich Lichtenstein. “These things take time.” Glat said it is important to have permits in place by the time a site is chosen so that prospective owners know what they’re getting. The problem is that some permits require details in the stadium design that the NFL isn’t prepared to commit to, preferring to give the future owner some flexibility. “That’s the tension right now,” one Coliseum official said. “They want the deal to be as generic as possible, but it can’t be generic if you want entitlements. In a normal deal, you’d go into escrow and sign the lease, then begin to do those things.” Then there is the matter of satisfying USC, which wants its rights as a tenant protected in a building that would be operated by an NFL team, and also will be due compensation for having to play elsewhere during the expected two-year renovation. For now, those negotiations are on hold. “We’re not running into any problems,” Glat said. “We don’t have a deal done (with USC) because our focus is on the Coliseum.” Just as an agreement between the NFL and USC is part of the Coliseum’s terms with the NFL, so is an agreement between the NFL and the Angels in Anaheim. The baseball team’s contract with the city gives the Angels certain rights for parking and places restrictions on advertising. Pringle said the Angels’ recent victory over the city in court over the team’s name change shouldn’t be a factor. “One, we respect the Angels’ lease and two, if there’s any issues to be resolved in the agreement, it needs to be worked out between the Angels and the NFL,” he said. While Morgan and Pringle say they’ve reached an agreement in principle on a price for the land, Anaheim Councilman Harry Sidhu – a critic since he won a seat on the council 16 months ago – remains unhappy with the process. Rather than having the land value set by an independent appraiser, as the city has done, Sidhu would like the value of all city-owned property set by the market. “An appraisal is not the true value,” said Sidhu, who acknowledges he’s in the minority on the five-person council. “It is based on the bidding process. The NFL is basically trying to steal the land from us and some of the council members feel the language, ‘the best interest of the city,’ is for giving away the land for a very cheap price. I’m not for a subsidy for very rich people.” These days, land is a hot commodity in the NFL. What Anaheim has to offer is akin to what many teams, such as Minnesota, Dallas and San Diego, are seeking in stadium deals – land on which they can build retail, hotel and entertainment developments along with a new stadium. The lust for land is why the NFL first pursued a deal in Carson, which had nearly twice as much land available as Anaheim, and why as recently as November entertained discussions with Dodgers officials about a stadium development in Chavez Ravine. “The big issue for the Coliseum with the NFL always used to be parking,” said one Coliseum Commission member, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “Now, it’s that there’s no availability of land.” That is something the Coliseum, for all its history, political muscle and proximity to the heart of Los Angeles, can’t offer. For all the proposed development along Figueroa Boulevard, between Staples Center and Exposition Park, the only land the Coliseum has been able to offer is the obsolete Sports Arena, which the NFL has preferred to leave up to the new owner. Still, most in the Coliseum camp believe their site has too much else to offer if the NFL wants back in the nation’s second-largest market. “I believe they’ve already made the decision that we’re No. 1 and Anaheim is No. 2,” said county Supervisor Yvonne Brathwaite Burke, the recently appointed president of the Coliseum Commission. “I think everybody’s resolved most of the issues. The only impediment is not whether the stadium (deal) goes forward, but when you get down to the transfer of the team and how that owner pencils it out.” One thing is certain: if the NFL has a decision to make between the Coliseum and Anaheim, it will have fundamentally different choices. One is a land development deal with a streamlined political process and carte blanche in building a stadium. The other has history, proximity, and, for now, political will behind it. “The deals are relatively unimportant in the grand scheme of things,” Pringle said. “I believe it’s the venue – where the owners wish to have that next franchise, where they want to be and what their opportunities are at those sights. The question is, none of this has been presented to the full ownership group.” In other words, the ball is squarely in the NFL’s court. Over the next two months, officials in Anaheim and at the Coliseum will be watching to see just how far and how fast it runs with it.

Doggone hackers try to fix annual contest

first_imgPoor Pee Wee Martini. The 2-year-old Chinese crested/Japanese Chin mix was leading in the online World’s Ugliest Dog Contest, a canine version of the People’s Choice Awards for the funny-looking critters. Then computer hackers broke into the Sonoma-Marin Fair Web site and erased 40,000 votes for Pee Wee and stole 30,000 from an Italian greyhound named Victoria while they were at it. That put Lucille Bald – a purebred Chinese crested from Florida – in the lead until fair officials noticed the vote theft.
