There are 3 persons that are at-large candidates, but they only live a couple of blocks from Berryman. Is there a small boundary around her house? Best of luck to everyone.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 288 weeks ago +12 Vote up Vote down no perry mason · 288 weeks ago I would disagree. Stallbaumer was an excellent mayor and represented Wellington well. He was always out and about attending functions plus he was easy to talk to. Now onto this election. Is it just me or does anyone else see a conflict with the chamber director wanting to be mayor. Seems very small town and a serious conflict of interest . Chamber is always asking and receiving money from the city. In some cases the mayor does have to vote. Even though I am sure she would excuse herself from that vote then there would be no outcome…plus is the council just going to push that agenda. City employees are not allowed to run for city council or mayor maybe the chamber director should be included in that category Report Reply 1 reply · active 287 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down MJE · 287 weeks ago It’s now a moot point, since Shelly has resigned as director of the chamber, but the Chamber is a private organization, but there is a difference between actual city employees, and people who work for private organizations that may benefit from decisions the city makes . The hospital has received funding from the city, in the form of sales taxes and utility abatements- would it be right to say hospital employees can’t run for city offices?

Upamecano opens an auction

first_img“Competition for Upa it’s very strong “, sources close to the French central explain to AS. The Premier seemed to be the winning horse last summer, with Arsenal as the main bidder (punctured with Leipzig), but now the situation is different due to the growth of Upamecano in this unfinished season, together with the uncertainty caused by the crisis in the coronavirus. The French center back has the frying pan by the handle because, whatever happens, he wants to leave his current club. As this newspaper reported, he has pressured Leipzig to sell him. Alone has a contract until 2021 and is in the same as its termination clause this summer will drop from € 100 to € 60M.That is the number that Bayern plans to offer, according to information from Sport Bild. They are determined after monitoring Upamecano intensively. But the price could go down. For the Covid-19 and because then there was Zidane (and by extension Real Madrid) involved.The one who attends the bid almost as a mere spectator is Leipzig. In January they rubbed their hands together because they still had faith in retaining Upamecano (“Dayot is one of the best in the Bundesliga, no wonder the older ones want himIn fact, it would be strange that in summer they did not call for him, but we trust that he continues to grow here, “said his sports director), but they already privately assume that they will escape.Bayern offers ownership … Madrid has ZizouAlthough the defender’s environment wants a pause in this spiral of uncertainty generated by the coronavirus to better evaluate his options, in Munich and Madrid they handle different cards in this game. Bayern would offer Upamecano ownership as caramel and the factor that the Bundesliga already knows and adaptation is not in danger. AND at the Bernabéu there is the magnetism of Zidane when it comes to convincing potential signings … A hand in hand by Upamecano. Real Madrid and Bayern All their lives they have played intense duels on the field of play and now they will have another one, but in the offices. As AS published last 10th, French central defender Dayot Upamecano (RB Leipzig, 21 years old) Zidane especially likes it, but also the Munich giant. The Bavarian entity had been carefully planning the reconstruction of its defense because Jerome Boateng and David Alaba they are at the exit door and Upamecano tops their list …last_img read more

Blake plans ‘magical’ 2017

first_imgNational sprinter Yohan Blake says he is aiming to have what he has described as a “magical” 2017 season.The 2011 100-metre World champion said his fans should expect good things from him this season because he is confident he can pull off a few surprises throughout the year.”I am confident, but I’m not really focusing on what times I may set this season because I love to surprise the crowd,” Blake told The Sunday Gleaner. “Many persons didn’t think I would come back and run the times I did last season. I was consistent last season and this season. I’m just looking to execute my race and I have things up my sleeve, so expect good things from me.”Blake said these surprises may come very soon as he expects to be back competing next month.”The Camperdown Classic (on February 11) and the Gibson McCook Relays (on February 25) will start me off, and I’m really looking forward to all of that.”Blake said he is not really focused on the task of trying to become Jamaica’s next “sprint king” when Racers Track Club teammate Usain Bolt retires, as he does not want to put any undue pressure on himself and he just wants to focus on improving on last year’s performances.”Usain Bolt has been pushing me in training already for this year,” he said.”I don’t know if this will be his last year, but I will try to motivate him to come back. But I’m ready and I’m feeling good. He’s (Bolt) happy with where I’ve reached with my progress, so I’m happy and the coach is happy as well.”REMAINING OPTIMISTICBlake said that although things did not go exactly to plan at the Rio Olympics (he finished fourth in the 100m final), he is remaining optimistic about getting back to his best this year.”Well, I was injured and my hamstring was torn completely off the bone, and for me to come back and finish the season with 9.93 (in the 100m final at the Olympics), that speaks volumes,” he said. “Going into the 2017 season, I’m feeling myself, I’m running really well and I’m happy.”last_img read more

New proposed structure for prisons to reduce breakouts, fights – Prisons Director

first_imgIn light of the recent jail breakouts, fights among inmates and other disturbances occurring in various prisons throughout the country, a new structure has been proposed to alleviate the burdens of the Guyana Prison Service (GPS).Director of Prisons Gladwyn SamuelsDirector of Prisons, Gladwyn Samuels in an exclusive interview with Guyana Times on Sunday stated that this new proposal will address staff requirement that is much needed.He explained that all of the prisons in Guyana are quite old and some were never built to house prisoners but he is optimistic that with the new proposal, things will get better.“All of that is being looked at. There is a new structure that is proposed…we will be seeking to meet that staffing requirement but as it is right now our staff requirement is 6 to 1. Our staffing requirement is not filled.”According to Samuels, the GPS has been appealing to the public for more persons to join the prison system. He pointed out that the numbers are not where they should be but was happy to announce that another batch of 32 prison officers is expected to be inducted into the system soon.With regard to attempts by prisoners to escape from the lockups, Samuels stated that due to the prisons being old and in dire need of repairs and upgrading, such acts have been easier to execute since these attempts are coupled with the fact that there is limited staffing.But such cases are expected to be minimal once the necessary works are completed at each prison, he said. “New Amsterdam prison is old and that is why it is slated in the budget to be rebuilt this year. Also, that is why Mazaruni is being rebuilt.”However, Phase One of the massive expansion of the Mazaruni Prison is set to be completed by October of this year. This was disclosed by Iain Peebles, Project Manager of the Trinidadian firm Kee-Chanona that has joint responsibility for the project alongside the Guyanese company, Nabi Construction Incorporated.Earlier this month, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan conducted a site visit to assess works completed so far and was utterly impressed at the development.The $4 billion expansion will hold 400 prisoners to help with the overcrowding at the other prisons across the country. Peebles said with the construction of the first floor completed, Phase One is about 40 per cent done.Phase Two of the project commenced about a month ago with foundation works being carried out.Peebles added that everything is going as planned and that there is no need for any variation to the project. A road will also be constructed to link the two buildings when completed.Overcrowded prisons in and outside of Guyana is a cause for widespread worry and concern. In fact, it is one of the main contributing factors in the development of mental health illnesses in prisoners. Congested holding facilities often lead to insanitary conditions and are breeding grounds for violent acts. In addition to this, prison workers are placed at a greater risk for potential violence by prisoners in conditions such as these.last_img read more

Klopp talks up Chelsea title chances

first_imgThe two clubs meet in London on Saturday but on Wednesday they clash in the third round of the League Cup.At his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Klopp said when asked about Sarri: “It is the biggest change of system I ever saw in such a short period of time. Wow. Style completely (different). What a manager he is, to be honest.“I’m pretty much a supporter of him since I saw them playing at Naples (Sarri’s Napoli team). That’s outstanding football, and now (he is) doing it in a very interrupted pre-season, without a lot of players involved — Eden (Hazard), (Olivier) Giroud — and starting the season, and you see immediately the impact.”Klopp said Chelsea are realistic title contenders and is surprised they are not being tipped more widely.“This team is experienced,” said the Liverpool boss. “They won the title already — I’m not sure, but 80 per cent of them probably twice, and they know how it works. So that’s a really good group, a really strong football team.”Klopp confirmed goalkeeper Simon Mignolet will make his first appearance of the season in Wednesday’s cup tie as Alisson Becker rests.Dejan Lovren, having recovered from injury, could join Mignolet in getting a first run out of the season while Virgil van Dijk is being monitored after coming off in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Southampton due to a rib issue.Klopp said he will name a strong side for Wednesday’s match, in a competition often considered the lowest priority for sides involved in Champions League football.“It’s not about the other three competitions tomorrow night, it’s exactly one we have to play in, not four, and that’s how we will take it, with all concentration, all focus, all intensity, normal game,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Maurizio Sarri has started his Chelsea career in style © AFP/File / Lindsey PARNABYLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 25 – Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has expressed his admiration for Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri and stressed that the Blues are strong contenders for the Premier League title.Chelsea — in Sarri’s first season at Stamford Bridge — have 16 points out of a possible 18 in the Premier League so far, two fewer than leaders Liverpool.last_img read more
