Thirty-five-year-old Lindener, Quacy Giddings, was found not guilty of possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking, when he made his final appearance before Magistrate Clive Nurse at the Linden Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.Quacy GiddingsGiddings was accused of having in his possession 49 grams of cannabis sativa for the purpose of trafficking on November 3, 2017, at the Mackenzie Market in Linden. The prosecution’s case had contended that Police on foot patrol at the Mackenzie Market had observed Giddings acting in a suspicious manner and conducted a search of his person.Ranks had allegedly unearthed a pink and white plastic bag containing leaves, seeds and stems suspected to be cannabis, nine small ziploc bags also containing leaves, seeds and stems and a quantity of empty small ziploc bags.However, in making his ruling in the matter on Tuesday, Magistrate Nurse after perusing the evidence which was presented to the court, ruled that the prosecution failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant was indeed guilty of the offence. He cited several inconsistencies and discrepancies regarding the handling of the evidence as well as contradicting testimonies by Police witnesses. He said the witnesses contradicted each other.He noted that as a result of the discrepancies, the court could not rely on the evidence presented and was doubtful regarding the handling and investigation of the matter. Giddings, who was represented by Attorney Yondessa Welcome, walked out of court a free man after thanking the Magistrate.
A businessman, of Canal Number One Polder, West Bank Demerara, has been admitted to the Woodlands Hospital, after he was shot once to the hand during a scuffle with at least two gunmen who invaded his property in the wee hours of Monday.Injured is 36-year-old Dhaniram Tirbeni, of Lot 13 Studley Park, Canal Number One Polder.According to reports, the gunmen entered the premises by breaking a wooden window in the bottom flat of the two-storey wooden and concrete structure.The men demanded money and other valuables, but Dhaniram reportedly informed them that he used up the money he had at home to replenish his grocery store.After ransacking the place, the men found an undisclosed sum of money but were not satisfied, so they threatened to kill the businessman. However, he put up a fight and was shot. The men then made good their escape on foot.Shovonne Dass, the wife of the injured man, during a telephone interview, told Guyana Times that the incident occurred around 1:00h. She explained that prior to the incident, they heard unusual sounds and thought they were coming from the dogs.She noted that after some time, the sounds faded away, so they retired to bed. They were in one room and their two daughters, ages two and six, were in another room. The couple did not realise that someone was in their room until someone hit her husband on his head with a gun.“They gun butted my husband and demanded money and jewellery. They ransacked the whole place, all the bedrooms and the shop and they find some money… one was not wearing anything to cover his face, but the other covered his face with a piece of cloth,” the traumatised woman related.The bandits also took the keys to all the vehicles owned by the businessman.His wife noted that after the bandits found the money and jewellery, they collected two mobile phones, but they wanted more valuables. “One of them put the gun to my husband’s head, but he used his hands to bar and the gun went off… after the bullet went off, the men ran away,” she added.Dass immediately contacted her brother-in-law, who in turn called the Police. Her brother-in-law subsequently arrived in a taxi and took the injured man to the hospital. The woman noted that the Police arrived a short while after and launched an investigation.Police have since recovered the crowbar that was used to break the window.Dass noted that her children, who witnessed the entire ordeal, were still traumatised. The elder who had exams at school could not concentrate, so she had to leave school, while the younger child had not eaten or drank anything since the attack. The Police are continuing their investigations.
“I’m not pressured to run him. He doesn’t need to run. He’s fresh and he’s a 3-year-old at the beginning of the year, and it’s a long year.” Also lining up for the Grade II test are Woody Be Quick, M.J. Pkay, Wanna Runner and Sailors Sunset. Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella doesn’t have last year’s Santa Anita Handicap winner Rock Hard Ten (retired late last season), but when the big money is on the line, look for the Altadena-born Mandella to fire some big shots. During his stellar career, “Million Dollar Mandella” has won 13 races worth $1 million or more. He made racing history in 2003 when he won four Breeders’ Cup races on the same afternoon during the Oak Tree meeting. Mandella has entered two horses, Osidy and Unbridled Energy, in today’s co-feature, the $200,000 San Fernando Stakes at 1 1/16 miles for 4-year-olds. He won last year’s race with Minister Eric. Both horses ran in the opening-day Malibu Stakes at seven furlongs, with Unbridled Energy finishing fifth and Osidy sixth. “They were finishing good,” Mandella said. “It looked like they both wanted to go a little further, so we’re going to try it.” The San Fernando is a wide-open race where any of the other seven entrants – Swiss Lad, Canteen, Greeley’s Galaxy, Swing Your Partner, Sort It Out, Distorted and Brecon Beacon – could win with a top performance. Retired Hall of Fame jockey Chris McCarron will be honored today at Santa Anita following the fourth race when a bust of his likeness will join those of legendary riders Johnny Longden, Bill Shoemaker and Laffit Pincay in the east paddock gardens. McCarron, and his wife, Judy, now reside in Lexington, Ky., where they have formed the “The North American Racing Academy,” a school for aspiring jockeys that will open later this year. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ARCADIA – If predicted rains douse Arcadia, will the highly anticipated rematch between Stevie Wonderboy and Brother Derek fall part before the 26th running of today’s $150,000 San Rafael Stakes? Doug O’Neill, trainer of Stevie Wonderboy, said his colt is going to run, rain or shine. Dan Hendricks, the trainer of Brother Derek, said maybe. Late last October, Stevie Wonderboy won the $1.4 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Belmont Park in New York and is expected be to honored later this month with an Eclipse Award as the best 2-year-old in 2005.

No. We definitely want to win, but the first Saturday in May (the Kentucky Derby) is our long-term target, that’s for sure.” Hendricks views it a bit differently. “The weather could definitely affect us,” he said. “I don’t want to run on an off-track, or a hard, sealed track.

With a smoky coal ban in place in Letterkenny since 2013, the Asthma Society is calling for support of an all-island ban that would see it extended to all of Donegal.Asthma Society wants smoky coal ban extended to all of Donegal.In anticipation of an all-island ban, the Asthma Society has also launched its campaign for Clean Air calling on householders across Donegal to ‘be a lifesaver’ and burn smokeless coal or an alternative clean fuel to reduce asthma symptoms and save lives.Niamh Kelly, Asthma Society of Ireland said, “With 470,000 people affected, Ireland has the fourth highest prevalence of asthma worldwide. The dangers of smoky coal on public health are well documented and it is also a commonly known asthma trigger. “In advance of an all-island ban, we are calling on fuel consumers across Donegal to burn smokeless coal or an alternative fuel, to reduce asthma symptoms and save lives.”While many lives have been saved with the provincial bans, Dr. Dermot Nolan of the Asthma Society of Ireland’s Medical Advisory Group, estimates that almost 2,000 lives could be saved annually with the implementation of an all-island ban on the sale and distribution of smoky coal.Dr. Nolan said, “While we have made significant strides in recent years with many urban areas now covered by a smoky coal ban, until an all-island ban is implemented, policing these regional bans is difficult and hundreds of thousands of people still breathe pollutants from smoky coal every day.“I see the effects of smoky coal on the most vulnerable in society on a daily basis- in particular patients of chronic lung diseases such as asthma. With the implementation of an all-island ban, we estimate that 2,000 lives would be saved each year.” A representative member survey conducted by the Asthma Society also revealed that poor air quality affects asthma in 78% of members and smoke from coal fire affects asthma in 55% of members.Furthermore, 1 in 5 Asthma Society members surveyed reported to have had an asthma attack as a result of breathing smoke from coal fire.Join the Clean Air Campaign by visiting www.asthma.ie.

Jim McGuinnessFormer Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has said Donegal’s Michael Murphy will get stronger as he gets fitter through the season.Writing in his Irish Times column, the Glenties man said it was their “innate quality’ which saw them overcome Fermanagh.But he singled out a number of players including Murphy, Frank McGlynn and Odhrán MacNiallais as being the stand-out players. McGuinness wrote “The Donegal-Fermanagh game on Sunday was interesting in that it exaggerated the division between teams accustomed to operating within the top tier and those beyond it.“With the exception of Neil McGee’s sending off, the match ran along expected lines: a tight opening period gradually opening into a relatively comfortable win for Donegal. Fermanagh exhibited the confidence acquired last summer in the opening half in Ballybofey but they lacked the quality to keep pace with Donegal over 70 minutes. When you think of Donegal, it was innate quality that saw them through.“First on my list in that respect would be Frank McGlynn for his overall game intelligence, his defensive positioning and his ability to initiate attacks – and to take a score. The other big plus was the emergence of the two debut players of immense potential, Mark Anthony McGinley and Eoin McHugh.“Odhrán MacNiallais was the outstanding player on the field and seems to be growing in stature all the time. He is a classical Donegal midfield player; very stylish and a ball player who sees things early and who possesses a devastating finishing touch. “Patrick McBrearty looked strong and dangerous and even though Fermanagh operated a sweeper, Donegal were able to play around it fairly comfortably. Funny, a lot of the ball Patrick saw was delivered by Michael Murphy. And this is the ongoing debate about Donegal. There is a slogan in Donegal: There’s only one Michael Murphy. It’s true and more is the pity.“I heard through the grapevine that Michael worked extremely hard to be fit and ready for this game and having come through it, he will be in a strong position as he prepares to play Monaghan.“He wasn’t all-dominating against Fermanagh but his delivery was excellent and when his team were struggling in the middle, he came out and essentially recovered that area to give Donegal the platform to go ahead and win. Donegal’s experience was paramount here.“The sending off might have upset the team but as it turned out Fermanagh were completely outplayed in the second half, psychologically and in terms of technical ability. You couldn’t have asked much more from 14 men in the second half.”‘THERE’S ONLY ONE MICHAEL MURPHY AND HE WILL GET STRONGER’ – MCGUINNESS was last modified: June 14th, 2016 by StephenShare 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)
