first_img “He lives with his family out in Seven Miles, Bull Bay, so he is within the region and is well familiar with the club and location. He’s coming back from injuries … and wants to get his career on track. So he was looking at Harbour View as a fit and we were looking locally and internationally for players who could fit,” Jureidini explained. Matheson is still recovering from a hamstring injury that is keeping him out, and Jureidini says they are no rush. “We want to make sure his injury is recovered and repaired properly … . He has played a few practice games, so he can play, but we think it’s best to repair the injury fully and put him on a good footing and see how well he does throughout the Premier League and going forward, so we are being cautious to make sure his injuries have passed and then take it step by step,” he said. However, Jureidini thinks the player can improve the team and get his professional career back on track. “He is a talent, powerful player and a finisher; he could make a solid impact if fit, if ready and in the right frame of mind, so we are trying to get him there. “He participated heavily in preseason and specific training … and we want him in good health and build a solid season, which hopefully will be the platform to return to the international stage,” he said. Meanwhile, Arnett’s coach, Jerome Waite, said Morgan will be missed, but it’s an opportunity for the player to improve himself. “Last season was one of his best, if not his best since leaving schoolboy football. But if the opportunity arises where he can have a stint in the US, then we will give him the opportunity,” said Waite. “The team will propel without him. If he was here he would play his part, but during his absence other players will have to rise above expectations. “The sky’s the limit (for Morgan), as it’s not only to play in the USL, it’s to try and get into higher leagues … and he has the capability,” Waite highlighted. One Canadian international player, Allando Matheson, has moved to the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL), while two players, Arnett Gardens’ Marvin Morgan Jr and Boys’ Town’s Asrick Samuels, will move overseas for the new season. Former Toronto FC and Canada Under-17 and Under-20 player, Matheson, agreed terms with Harbour View FC, while Morgan signed with Cosmopolitan Soccer League (CSL) club Lansdowne Bhoys and Samuels will turn out for Grenades FC in the Antigua & Barbuda League. Harbour View General Man-ager Clyde Jureidini says the Canada-born Matheson has had limited playing time over the last two seasons because of injuries, and while recovering with family in Bull Bay, both parties saw how they could mutually benefit each other. back on tracklast_img read more

first_imgTwenty-one-year-old Lennox Estwick of Central Amelia’s Ward, Mackenzie, Linden was on Wednesday remanded to prison by Linden Magistrate Clive Nurse on charges of unlawful wounding and inflicting grievous bodily harm.The miner is accused of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Kent Austin at Amelia’s Ward on August 31, 2017; and of inflicting grievous bodily harm on Dillon Batson at Amelia’s Ward on Friday, January 18, 2018.Because of this defendant’s failure to attend trial, an arrest warrant was issued for him. Asked his reason for not attending court, the father of one explained that he spends most of his time in the interior.The prosecution objected to the defendant being placed on bail on grounds of the seriousness of the offences and because he was a no- show for the first matter, which had been called since August of last year.Noting that the defendant has two pending matters, the first of which he did not appear for trial, the prosecution contended that he may likely not return to court if granted bail.The presiding magistrate therefore remanded the defendant to prison, and set the matters for recall on April 9 and 13 respectively.last_img read more

first_img…as her dismissed sugar worker husband struggles to find a jobBy Andrew CarmichaelSome women are considered great only when they excel in sports or academia, some achieve greatness by winning a beauty pageant; but a Berbice housewife and mother of four, who is none of the above, can justifiably be called a champion.When one sees this 29-year-old sweeper-cleaner at a primary school in East Canje, one may think little of her, more so when one finds out that she has a husband who is not working, and she has to care for him and four children.By any reasonable measure, Devonie Singh stands out as a great wife and mother. In December 2017, she took the decision to become the breadwinner for the family after her husband, Ramesh Hardyal, was given a termination letter from the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) when it closed its Rose Hall, East Canje operations, making his job redundant.“A woman is not supposed to have to provide for her children when she has a husband, the husband is supposed to provide for them,” Devonie believes. However, in her case, the converse obtains. “My husband was working all the time, so it is not unfair that I am working now,” she declared.Singh takes care of four children, three of whom are at primary school. And despite holding down a demanding job, she still finds time to assist them with their school work.“A wife must be a wife for her husband, and if she has kids, she has to take care of them. It is her duty to look after them and to clean and to wash,” Devonie told this publication.Five months ago, she sat with Hardyal as he despondently held his severance letter in his hand, and decided that she was going to take charge.“That is when I decided that I have to get up and get going. It is four children, the youngest is just two years old,” she told the  Guyana Times.Devonie said it was a bit difficult finding a job, but she persevered despite the odds, knowing that there were hundreds of other persons in the community similarly hunting jobs.Convincing her employer that she was the right person for the job in a community where the few jobs available were given to persons previously known by the employer was one of her first challenges. Devonie’s job dictates that she be at work for 07:30h, so she has to leave her Gangaram, East Canje home well in advance, and not return home until after 16:00h.Because her husband is out of a job, this determined woman gets out of bed at 04:00h to prepare meals and then get the children ready for school. That for many is already tiring, but not for Devonie; she still has a day’s work ahead.She does not earn as much money as Ramesh did when he was employed, and is also challenged to spend wisely the little money she earns.“I have had to cut down on some things, like grocery and some of the things that the kids like, and plenty other things. They like to eat certain things, but I can’t provide that, so I just give them a straight meal. I want my kids to go to school, so I try to provide what they need for school. I use whatever little I have,” Devonie disclosed.She is advising women whose husbands might not be earning enough for the family to go and get a job.The family still has loans to pay. However, when Ramesh received the first half of his severance, he paid great attention to that, and is eagerly awaiting the second half to pay off his loans.last_img read more

first_imgAudited financial statements show– entity’s future dependent on financial support from GovtThe National Communications Network (NCN) financial reports for the year 2015 have raised questions about the state of the entity’s finances, showing that as of the end of the year the company had excessive liabilities.The National Communications NetworkThe company’s total assets for that year were $1.369 billion, including current assets of $90.931 million and non-current assets of $1.278 billion. This is a decline from the previous year’s figure. According to the report, the company’s current liabilities exceeded its assets by some $96.6 million.Current assets are considered to be cash and cash equivalents, inventories and amounts it would have billed its customers. Non-current assets, on the other hand, include NCN’s property and equipment.In the report, Auditor General Deodat Sharma noted that title deeds for property with a net book value of $474.5 million were unavailable. In addition, it was found that a fixed asset register was not maintained by the company.“Further, the company only recognised annual depreciation charge on additions to fixed assets during the year,” he had stated. “I was, therefore, uncertain of the ownership, existence and valuation of non-current assets stated at $1.8 billion and depreciation charge of $881.1 million in the financial statement.”Nizam Ali and Company Chartered Accountants, who also audited the financial statements, had noted the existence of 24 financial statements explaining the company’s current liabilities exceeding its assets by $96.6 million.When the coalition Government had launched a forensic audit into NCN back in 2015, the financial state of the company was one of the things examined. It had found, among other things, that NCN did not maintain a fixed asset register since 2015.Auditors had reported that the company made attempts to outsource oversight of the fixed asset register, with little success. Because of the amount of accounting work, company officials had advised that they would be unable to undertake the management of the fixed asset register.RecommendationsThe report of the forensic auditors had contained a number of recommendations for NCN to improve its operations. These recommendations had included having systems implemented to ensure that all statutory audits are completed on a timely basis.It was also recommended that the company carry out a complete verification of all non-current assets, which should form the basis for the preparation of an up-to-date fixed asset register; establish a definitive credit policy, which should be documented and approved by the Board of Directors; and establish a debt collection committee with specific responsibility to collect all outstanding debts within six months.last_img read more
