– hunt still on for prime suspectPolice F Division Commander, Kevin AdonisThe hunt is still on for the main suspect in the murder of truck driver Nicolas Perion Bobb, who was shot and killed on Sunday last in the Kuribrong Trail, Potaro River.Two men are presently in Police custody, one of whom is the miner alleging that he escaped from the perpetrators after they had “abducted” him. However, his ‘tale’ is yet to be confirmed.According to Commander of “F” Division (Interior locations), Kevin Adonis, the statements given by the miner are “conflicting”, and therefore he is still being investigated in relation to murder.“His story varies a lot, it is not consistent. But he is in custody, we have him in custody. So, as for him and the abduction, we still want to know if he was part of this murder or not,” Adonis has said.The Police Commander emphasised that while the Guyana Police Force (GPF) is hunting for the main suspect in the shooting/murder, and two men are in custody, there may be others involved.“Yes, we are looking for that one person; but based on information we are receiving, there are other persons who are said to have been there. Apparently there were a few of them (men) there, and they were together when the crime(s) occurred, from what we are being told,” Adonis has said.In relation to the main suspect, the GPF will soon issue a wanted bulletin for his arrest.“We did not get him as yet…as it is, robbery was not the motive… This guy is an owner of a mining camp, so when we went there yesterday (Wednesday), he was not there, but we know he is from Vreed-en-Hoop on the WCD,” Adonis disclosed.Reports are that the dead truck driver, who hailed from Carabese Hill in Bartica, was shot in the stomach by a group of men.Police had initially said that the killers had abducted another man who was in Bobb’s truck and reportedly saw when the driver was shot. However, the man managed to escape and was said to have been assisting law enforcement officers with their investigation.The slain truck driver, Nicolas Bobb
A Linden mother is pleading for the safe return of her 15-year-old daughter who went missing since last Thursday. The Wisburg Secondary School student, Michelle Pierre, left home to attend the school sports and was not seen since.Missing: Anikha HarriHer mother, Anikha Harris, is in shock and is worried that something bad might have happened since the teenager would not run away from home.“She was wearing her school uniform skirt, a white T-shirt with the image of a tree, black and white adidas slippers and a pink and white sock. That’s what she left to go to sports with…” Pierre noted.The family has since filed a missing person’s report at the Mackenzie Police station headquarters in Linden. Police are expected to visit the school in a bid to ascertain her whereabouts. Meanwhile, the mother continues to plead with anyone with information on the missing teen to contact her or Police.“Where ever she is, I wish for her to come home because I don’t know where she can be and if she is being held against her will, whoever have her or if she is there willingly, I am asking her to return”, the mother pleaded.Anyone with information on the whereabouts of missing teen Anikha Harris is asked to contact her mother on telephone number 652-8220 or the Mackenzie Police Station on 444-3512 or 444-3297 or report to the nearest Police station.
Xherdan Shaqiri in action for Switzerland 1 Besiktas have lodged an enquiry to Stoke over the availability of playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri.The Turkish champions believe the lure of Champions League football next year could tempt the midfielder into a move, although they will be unlikely to match his current salary.With Gokhan Tore set to move to West Ham, Besiktas are already on the lookout for a replacement and, according to Fotomac, they view the Switzerland international as the ideal man to fill the void.Stoke, however, are unlikely to co-operate in any negotiations for Shaqiri after splashing out £12m on him last summer.The 24-year-old made a positive start to his Premier League career, making 27 starts and scoring three goals for the Midlands club.
PALMDALE – Palmdale Water District customers’ bills will go up an average 12 percent starting this month as officials hike rates to pay for more expensive treatment processes needed to meet stiffening health standards. Rates are going up 7 percent on the basic monthly charge, and up 14 percent on water used beyond that amount, officials said. “The rationale was that people who are really trying to stay under the minimum are going to have a smaller increase,” general manager Dennis LaMoreaux said. The new rates will increase the typical charge for a home using 22,500 gallons a month to $44.84, up from $40.08 last year, officials said. Taking inflation into account, the price is about the same as in 1992. The district supplied its customers almost 7.9 billion gallons of water in 2004 and is gaining about 500 new homes a year. The district is in the midst of a $40 million upgrade to its treatment plant to reduce the level of substances called trihalomethanes, a byproduct of chlorine used for disinfection interacting with organic material in California Aqueduct water. The upgrade will increase water treatment costs $1.5 million a year, LaMoreaux said. Trihalomethanes have been linked to bladder cancer and reproductive harm in laboratory animals, as well as to a birth defect called spina bifida and to miscarriages. Charles F.

Those extra charges are going up in two areas and down in a third, as a result of recalculated expenses, lowering the typical monthly charge for the highest elevation from $77.83 to $76.34. In a vote last week, the water board also decided to raise rates 2.5 percent across the board annually for the next four years. The last raise was 1.5 percent in November 2004, which was the last of an annual series of 1.5 percent raises enacted in 2000. Last week’s action continues the five-tier “increasing block” rate structure adopted in 2000: Water costs increase as useage increases, plus the extra charges for customers at higher elevations. The Palmdale Water District serves about 25,000 homes and businesses – about 95,000 people – and covers mostly central and eastern Palmdale, from the Antelope Valley Freeway eastward south of Avenue P. About one-third of the customers are at the higher-elevation areas, which contain much vacant land.

With a star-studded 21-man field consisting of the world’s best riders, the race was destined to be a hard one with no quarter asked or given. The 26-year-old from Franschhoek, who currently resides in Johannesburg, rode a well-controlled race and pulled out something extra at the end to close down the gap on an escaping group. 5 April 2012 SAinfo reporter ‘Tried to play it cool’“I knew somebody was going to attack in the finish, and just tried to play it cool and make other people chase. It’s definitely the hardest I’ve ever had to work for a track cycling race,” the aptly named Swift said afterwards. Talent and class Hoffman, around 10 lengths behind Swift at the bell lap, showed his immense talent and undoubted class when he turned the burners on the second last corner to pass five riders. South African sprint sensation Nolan Hoffman delivered the performance of his life to clinch a silver medal in the 15km scratch race at the 2012 UCI Track World Champs in Melbourne, Australia on Wednesday. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material Swift’s win was the first British gold medal for the event since it was introduced at the 2002 World Championships, while it was South Africa’s first medal in the men’s scratch event. Around the last bend, it was clear that a podium finish was within reach for the South African. He put in an almighty effort to try and catch Swift, but it was not to be. Nonetheless, Hoffman’s enormous final lunge saw him miss out on the gold medal by a mere half a wheel. He was ecstatic to cross the line in second place. Hoffman believed it was a breakthrough performance at his first elite World Championships. “I’ve been to all the World Cups and I’ve struggled a bit and I always thought the World Champs is going to be hard,” he said with some surprise. Austrian Andreas Muller made a break with with six laps of the 60 remaining to open up a-third-of-a-lap lead. Czech rider Martin Blaha, Italian Elia Viviani and Briton Ben Swift chased down Mueller to catch him with less than two laps left before the British rider kicked to open a lead in the final back straight.
As protesters turned violent over amended motor vehicles Act, the Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Police Commissionerate launched an awareness campaign. The people and police had fought a pitched battle over the enforcement of the Act on September 7.The protesters’ resentment was primarily against steep penalties. The information regarding the amended rules will be spread through loudspeakers attached to a four-wheeler with photographs and posters displayed on it, DCP (Traffic) Sagarika Nath told the media.On the other hand, the demonstrators also demanded unconditional release of the people who were arrested following a clash with police in Bhubaneswar on September 7. Two days after the authorities faced opposition from the people, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had given three months to people to get their papers ready.The Police Commissionerate on September 10 distributed helmets to motorists who were penalised. They also distributed ‘Thank You’ notes to motorists who were following traffic rules.Meanwhile, the Transport Department offices have been witnessing a huge rush of people to apply for and renew driving licences and updating vehicle documents. The department’s offices across the State are also open on holidays to cope with the rush.State Transport Secretary G. Srinivas, who went on a surprise visit to a Regional Transport Office on September 11, said that the State government will decide about reducing the penalty rates after studying notifications issued by other States that had implemented the amended Act.During the window period of three months for people to prepare the papers, the police are focusing on drunken driving, use of mobile phones while driving, driving on the wrong side of roads, triple riding and non-usage of helmets and seat belts.
