− withholding of passports questionedA Police Prosecutor was reprimanded by a City Magistrate after indicating to the court that he has no objections to three Cubans being released since the prosecution will be withholding their passports as evidence.The three Cubans were charged for forging Guyana Immigration stamps in their Cuban passports.The Police Prosecutor indicated that the prosecution will be in custody of the passports belonging to the Cuban Government since the passports are the items in question.However, the Magistrate immediately questioned the basis on which the Prosecutor was holding on to the Cuban Government’s property.The City Magistrate then ordered the Police Prosecutor to read the fine print in the passports, but the Prosecutor explained that he was unable to do so, given the language barrier. The Prosecutor said they will seek advice on their next move. The City Magistrate told the three Cubans, through a Spanish translator, that the court will keep the passports in safe custody until the Cuban Ambassador is available to pick them up. The Magistrate added that the Cuban passports should have been lodged at the Embassy of Cuba.The three Cubans – Alvin Rodrigues, 44; Andez Rodrigues, 38; and Alleen Abask, 34; were each granted $80,000 bail for forging Guyana Immigration stamps into their Cuban passports.It was alleged that on October 9, 2016, at Moleson Creek, Corentyne, with the intent to defraud a Police Constable of three Republic of Cuba passports in favour of themselves, the trio forged Guyana Immigration stamps purporting to show the same to ranks of the Immigration Department at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, knowing same to be false.The men are scheduled to make their next court appearance on October 25, before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for assignment and statements.

Volunteers ranged from skilled electricians and plumbers to children with garden shovels eager to help. After learning of the recently widowed Janet Lamping and her four daughters, ages 9, 16, 27, and 29, through Whittier police Sgt. Kent Miller, church leaders looked into the situation decided to help, said Stringer. “She was in great need,” Stringer said, “She had been practically living at the hospital for 6 months before Tom’s death.” Lamping had intended to do many of the projects, as he was planning on retiring in less than two years at the time he was diagnosed with cancer and rapidly became desperately ill, said Janet Lamping. First on Lamping’s unfulfilled to-do list was to replace broken lighting fixtures in the living room, said Janet Lamping. “I wish he could have seen them,” she tearfully added as she watched workers put the finishing touches on the new fixtures. • Photo Gallery: Gone Serving DIAMOND BAR – Dozens of volunteers brought paintbrushes and power tools to the home Whittier police Sgt. Tom Lamping’s family over the weekend to make the repairs and home improvements Lamping was unable to complete before he died in March at age 51. The massive two-day renovation was carried out by parishioners of the Whittier Area Community Church as part of their second annual “Serve Weekend.” Active and retired Whittier police officers also joined the project, according to project leader and general contractor Sonny Stringer. Some of the work was begun two weeks ago. The entire interior of the home was painted, landscaping was done, new lights and appliances were installed, and a bathroom completely remodeled in the most ambitious of 102 projects targeted at serving the community being carried out over the weekend by about 1,200 church members, Stringer said. “It’s such a blessing being allowed all this,” said Janet Lamping, adding that she was “exuberant” to see how grateful the community was to her husband. “Tom dedicated his life to serving others. He would give and give and give,” she said. Now it’s time for a little payback, said Stringer. Janet Lamping said the outpouring of support has raised her spirits, particularly following a burglary Thursday in which thieves stole some of Lamping’s firearms, jewelry he had given to his wife and money, she said. “I was scared to be here for a while,” she said, “but now the love is back.” Generous donations made the project possible, said Stinger. Rose Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary and the Whittier Police Officer’s Association made monetary donations, and Whittier-based Uptown Flooring donated all the materials and labor needed to remodel the master bathroom, he added. Other projects taken on as part of WACC’s “Serve Weekend” included helping at retirement homes, painting classrooms and sending mailings to U.S. soldiers deployed overseas, Stinger said. firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2718 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A motorist had a lucky escape after their vehicle was almost swept out to sea after getting stuck on the popular Rossnowlagh beach earlier this afternoon.The motorist from Northern Ireland was caught out by the volatile tides on Rossnowlagh which is has now become a notorious hazard for drivers who park on the beach.Over the last number of years other drivers have been left stuck on the beach and locals have appealed for visitors to stop parking on the beach to alleviate the on-going issue. However, the tide coming in quickly wasn’t the issue today unlike in previous years.The engine of the VW car cut out and the motorist couldn’t get it started.As the tide moved in the motorist was helped by locals who battled tirelessly to get the car off the strand.Eventually the community effort ensured the vehicle got off the beach before it was swallowed by the waves. At one stage the Sligo 118 Rescue chopper swooped overhead as the rescue operation took place.Thankfully the car was removed in time and a releived motorist admitted they’ll think twice about parking on a beach from now on.DRIVER LEFT ALL AT SEA AFTER GETTING STRANDED ON BEACH was last modified: April 8th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:FeaturesMotoristnewsrossnowlagh beachStrandedvehicle
Letterkenny man Roger Holmes is cycling across America in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.He is doing superbly well despite being hit by a falling rock the size of a basketball yesterday!He’s ready to get back into the saddle but his beloved bike Peggy might need a few more repairs. This is his latest instalment.Keep it going Roger – we’re all behind you.“Yesterday on US50 going through a gorge cañon along the Arkansas River, a piece of rock fall about the size of a baseball rolled out in front of me and I hit it and came off the bike.“I’m fine…just some road rash. Poor Peggy the bike took the worst of it and I need to wait to get to a bike shop tomorrow morning to see what the damage is. “I was helped on the roadside by the good samaritan Diane M. Krier and rested up at the Super8 motel in Cañon City.“This morning I was unsure what my next move was going to be. Then Yeju Christina Lee and her family came to my rescue! Christina, who is a biology major dressed my road rash wounds. She told me her first gorey project at college was disecting a foetal pig. Working on a crazy Irishman is probably worse 🙂“I am going to relax today, and possibly go out to see Royal Gorge. I am deeply indebted to Diane and to Christine and her family for helping me out and keeping this challenge alive.“I am now even more determined to complete #TransAtlanticCycle for the #IrishCancerSociety. I am grateful for yet more #AmericanHospitality. Hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday I will be back on the road. #OneDayAtATime #JustNotTodayPeggy needs some TLC and perhaps a bit of oil!A DONEGAL MAN’S CYCLE ACROSS AMERICA – ROGER IS DOWN BUT NOT OUT! was last modified: July 11th, 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) Tags:cycle across AmericadonegalRoger Holmes

Gary Cahill hauled the visitors level at Anfield after Emre Can’s effort had deflected in off the Chelsea defender to give Liverpool an early lead.Can tried his luck from long range and the German’s shot looped into the net after striking Cahill, giving wrong-footed keeper Thibaut Courtois no chance.Can had gone close with another deflected shot in the opening minute, when the ball flashed just wide after hitting John Terry.Chelsea responded strongly to going behind and equalised in the 14th minute with the help of goal-line technology – ironically in front of the Kop, where Luis Garcia’s infamous 2005 Champions League semi-final goal against them was allowed to stand after being adjudged to have crossed the line.Cesc Fabregas’ corner was flicked on by Diego Costa and after Simon Mignolet superbly saved Terry’s header, Cahill did enough to score despite the keeper’s best efforts on the line.Cahill was soon at the centre of the action again, blocking Raheem Sterling’s shot with his upper arm as the home fans appealed in vain for a penalty.Chelsea ended the first half strongly, with Costa causing problems for an increasingly ragged Liverpool defence and the dangerous Eden Hazard seeing two shots blocked before another was saved by Mignolet.Costa continued to threaten after the break, sending an acrobatic effort over, while Courtois kept out Sterling’s driven shot at the other end.Ramires, back in the Chelsea starting line-up following a recent groin injury, was replaced by Willian nine minutes into the second half. Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Ramires (Willian 54), Oscar, Hazard; Costa. Subs: Cech, Zouma, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Remy, Drogba.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
