US medical team completes 262 eye surgeries at Port Mourant

first_imgA 21-member United States Army (US) ophthalmology team has successfully completed 262 surgeries at the National Ophthalmology Hospital at Port Mourant, Berbice.Some of the United States Army’s New Horizons teamThe two-week programme, which was undertaken by United States Army’s New Horizons team, completed 208 cataract surgeries, 49 pterygia (A pterygium is a growth of the conjunctiva or mucous membrane that covers the white part of your eye over the cornea. The cornea is the clear front covering of the eye. This benign or noncancerous growth is often shaped like a wedge) and one lens implant.The team also carried out four other surgical procedures during their visit.The team, which comprised of eight surgeons, four optical technicians, one biomedical engineer, five operating room nurses and five security personnel, commenced operations on May 6.Head of Team Horizons, Ophthalmologist, Major Andrew Lewis noted that the team was able to complete so many surgeries in that short period because of the assistance it received from the Cuban brigade prior to its arrival.He explained that the local doctors were adequately able to evaluate the patients, thus enabling the team to do more of what it came to do.“When we came in and did the prescreening we say 313 patients and we were able to sign up neatly 270 of those patients. That is a testimony to the quality of the physicians that are here. Where we were at other locations in other countries and not had a local team that has been able to take care of the patients in such a good way we have not been able to do nearly as mush surgeries while we have been there.”Meanwhile, Lieutenant Dan Stoica of the US Embassy representing the US Ambassador said the team represented the US well.Focal Point Coordinator Alex Foster explained that for some time, the hospital has not been able to deliver a good service and over 2000 persons were on the waiting list for surgeries.He told the visitors that the sunshine which they brought to over 250 Guyanese families will be returned to them.last_img read more

School District 60 transportation open house tonight

first_imgIn order to find the $700,000 Secretary-Treasurer Doug Boyd says is needed to match revenues with expenditures, the idea of charging rural students to use school buses has been proposed. Based on this year’s ridership, those fees would bring in $406,000, which means the School District would still be looking to make almost an additional $300,000. From 5 to 8 p.m. at the School District 60 board office, parents will be given information on the current situation, and will have an opportunity to provide their own ideas on how to come up with the money. – Advertisement –last_img

Board of education names new trustee

first_imgMOORPARK – Moorpark Unified School District’s board of education last week named Bruce Thomas to the five-member panel, filling the vacancy left by the resignation of longtime trustee Tom Baldwin. Thomas, a 57-year-old financial adviser, was one of six candidates who applied for the post vacated by Baldwin, who moved out of state this year. Thomas’ term is up in November. “I’ve always been very involved with the school district. I thought I would do a good job,” Thomas said. Thomas is a past president of the Moorpark High School Booster Club and has been involved with the Moorpark Education Foundation. Thomas, who ran for City Council in 2004, said his priorities are making sure the school district is fiscally sound and that students continue to improve on federal and state test scores. School board member David Pollock said all of the candidates were qualified, making the decision tough. “We were looking for someone who would bring a different perspective on the board. (Thomas’) background in business in the community would do that,” Pollack said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ASSEMBLY VISIT WILL BE A MAJOR BOOST FOR DONEGAL, SAYS TD McHUGH

first_imgDeputy Joe McHughThe Co-Chairman of the British Irish Parliamentary Assembly, Joe McHugh TD, has said that it will be a major boost for Donegal to welcome parliamentarians from Ireland North and South, Scotland, Wales, England, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man to Letterkenny for the 46th plenary of the Assembly on March 4th and 5th.Deputy McHugh said he was honoured to bring the Assembly to the North-West in the year of the Gathering 2013 and Derry City of Culture.Highlighting the economic potential of renewable energy generation for areas like the North-West, Deputy McHugh said that a key focus of this plenary will be to concentrate on how the British and Irish Governments, along with the other devolved regional parliaments and assemblies, can work together to deliver more in terms of growth opportunities for this important sector. Deputy McHugh commented, “I am delighted that the British Irish Parliamentary Assembly is coming to Donegal on March 4th and 5th. It is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase this unique part of the island to an international audience of public representatives who can carry the message back to their respective constituencies.”“It is quite appropriate that the theme of the 46th plenary of the Assembly is ‘Energy across Borders – Delivering the Economic Opportunities’. Almost more so than any other part of this island, the North West has the potential to capitalise from an energy export market and from the economic opportunities that will arise from a vibrant renewable energy generation sector.“A key aim of this plenary will be to explore the economic possibilities that arise from the energy sector through closer cooperation and electricity exporting. Although there is an all-island single electricity market, a key focus must now be the development of an ‘East-West’ structure and this will be explored in this plenary.“The plenary session will be attended by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Pat Rabbitte TD and by legislators and energy industry leaders from across Ireland and Britain who will discuss how innovation in the energy sector can deliver economic opportunities for our islands. It will be a fantastic boost for Donegal and will be an opportunity to show off what is best about the county.” He added: “It is also timely that this grouping is coming together in Donegal on what happens to be the year of the Gathering 2013 and equally, Derry City of Culture. Both of these two major cultural events will be represented at the British Irish Parliamentary Assembly.” ASSEMBLY VISIT WILL BE A MAJOR BOOST FOR DONEGAL, SAYS TD McHUGH was last modified: February 27th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ASSEMBLY VISIT WILL BE A MAJOR BOOST FOR DONEGALSAYS TD McHUHlast_img read more

DONEGAL COMPANY DEFENDS PLANS FOR WASTE PLANT

first_imgA DONEGAL company has defended plans for a waste plant in one of Ulster’s most historic buildings despite protests from residents.Connective Energy Holdings Limited, from Cloghan, wants to build an anaerobic digester to process waste and generate electricity at the Herdman buildings in Sion Mills, Co Tyrone.CEHL has said the energy park will benefit the community and bring jobs to the area. The process produces a biogas, consisting of methane and carbon dioxide and this can be used directly as fuel to generate electricity. It is widely used in mainland Europe, particularly in Germany.Up to 100 people gathered at a meeting in the village to voice concern at a planning proposal.CEHL spokesperson Brendan McSorley said the issues raised by residents had been addressed in the planning application.“We can’t allay the fears of every single person in Sion Mills, but we want to get the message out there that we are open and anyone who wants to can come and chat to us,” he told BBC Radio Foyle. “The main thing for us is that it will mean jobs for the village. The construction of this will bring between 60 and 70 jobs and in the long term it will create around 20 jobs.”But Andy Patton, chairman of the Sion Mills Community Forum said 98% of people at a meeting this week opposed the plans.Sion Mills resident Karen McGillian said she was objecting on several grounds.“First of all the noise that comes with a site of this size, the odour and the amount of traffic with slurry tanks, the tractors and diggers and all the other traffic associated that’s going to be coming up and down the road,” she said.“As a resident of the village, what I had hoped would happen here would be that something would be created that would continue on the legacy that Herdman’s brought to the village. You can see the beauty of it and you can still see the potential it has. “I would seriously question the contribution in terms of the Herdman’s legacy that this particular plant would bring to the village.”Celia Ferguson said: “My family actually built Sion Mills, I was a Herdman before I married a Ferguson.“This is the most important industrial heritage site, certainly in Ireland and one of the most important in the British isles.“I think it’s probably not the right place to have such a large anaerobic digestor. “It would be a very, very large structure and it’s in the curtilage of the mill buildings which would detract from the view of the mill which is sacrosanct really in heritage terms.”DONEGAL COMPANY DEFENDS PLANS FOR WASTE PLANT was last modified: May 20th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:DONEGAL COMPANY DEFENDS PLANS FOR WASTE PLANTlast_img read more

SO NACHO! CHIPS ARE DOWN FOR THIEF WHO STOLE FROM PIZZA PARLOUR

first_imgA man who stole 11 bulk bags of nachos after he went on a drinking binge must have built up some appetite, a court has heard.Nacho a nice thing to do!Sebastian Andanowicz admitted to stealing the food along with 24 cans of lemonade to wash them down. Andanowicz, of Sylvian Park, appeared before Letterkenny District Court charged with stealing the goods from Dominos Pizza.The 33 year old, who had 24 previous convictions, was arrested at the rear of the restaurant at 9.10pm on February, 4th last.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client had literally drank all of his money and went stealing food.“He basically drinks what he has and then has to feed himself,” said Mr Gallagher.Judge Paul Kelly said Andanowicz “must have worked up some appetite.”Mr Gallagher suggested that it would not do anybody any good if his client was jailed.But Judge Kelly said it might do the community some good if Andanowicz was taken off the streets for a while.He ordered the accused to do 120 hours community service for the first theft and jailed him for four months for the second but suspended the prison sentence for 12 months.SO NACHO!
