No arrest in Parika businessman’s murder

first_imgInvestigations continue into the murder of Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE) businessman Somdat Ramgobin, but the Police are yet to make a breakthrough in the case.D Division Commander Edmond CooperThis is according to “D” Division Commander Edmond Cooper, who has said that the three youths who were detained by law enforcement officials did not provide any substantial information that could have helped with a breakthrough in the case. They were eventually released after questioning.However, Commander Cooper has said the efforts of the Police in his division will not cease, and this case will not be swept under the rug.“I am also personally involved in trying to solve this case. I am with my ranks, I am questioning persons and neighbours. We do not have any new leads or any leads at this point to follow, and therefore we are going to follow every single angle possible. We are all over (the place), asking if the deceased may have had a problem with someone prior to his death; if there are any old grievances, family disputes; (we are asking) any and everything.”Dead: Somdat RamgobinCooper said family members of Ramgobin strongly believe that the man’s death and the circumstances surrounding it had nothing to do with a robbery.“They are saying this is not associated with a robbery. I myself do not believe that it was just a robbery here. I would rule it out because, from information so far (culled), it does not point in the direction of a robbery,” the Commander explained.The 36-year-old Ramgobin, who had also been known as “Rakesh”, was killed on April 30th when suspected bandits invaded his Parika Backdam home. According to his sister, her brother had just closed his business place when it was reported that men had entered therein. One of the perpetrators, who was brandishing a gun, inquired from Ramgobin’s friend about Ramgobin’s whereabouts. At the time of the shooting, this friend was at Ramgobin’s home.The men ordered the friend to lie on the ground, and instructed him not to raise an alarm. Then they proceeded to call out to Ramgobin, who responded. He was immediately attacked with a glass bottle and beaten to his head and body. The duo then demanded cash, and was given some $600,000 by the now dead man.Unsatisfied, the men then demanded jewellery, and after being told that there was none, they took Ramgobin to a bedroom in his house, where they shot him to his chest.The bandits then quickly made good their escape in a white motorcar which was said to be parked outside.After the men left, the friend reportedly ran out of the house and raised an alarm.last_img read more

AIRTRICITY FIRST DIVISION: HARPS OFF TOP SPOT AS THEY LOSE OUT IN FIVE-GOAL THRILLER AT TOLKA PARK

first_imgSOCCER: Finn Harps have relinquished top spot in the Airtricity First Division following their 3-2 defeat tonight against Shelbourne. Worryingly for Harps it is now their THIRD defeat in-a-row and they’ll be disappointed at how tonight’s match panned out.The game had everything, TWO penalties, TWO red cards and FIVE goals in a cracking advertisement for the LOI. However, it was Harps who head up the road with nothing and on reflection they’ll be bitterly disappointed having led TWICE.Damien McNulty got them off to a flyer when he met a Gareth Harkin corner and powered his header past the helpless Greg Murray.Then three minutes later it got even better for Ollie Horgan’s side when Mark Sandford was shown a straight red card.Harps then played the rest of the half with the added advantage of an extra man but didn’t make that count and paid the penalty for it. Just before the interval Keith Cowan dragged Adam O’Connor down inside the box and the referee awarded a penalty.Veteran striker Philip Hughes made no mistake from the spot and sent the sides in at the break level.However Harps got off to a dream start in the second-half when Tony McNamee scored a superb goal after just TWENTY-FIVE seconds.It was an incredible start for Harps and with the added advantage of the extra man it looked like Horgan’s side would kick on.Disaster struck when Keith Cowan was adjudged to have fouled Philip Hughes inside the box and the referee gave Shelbourne another penalty. To make it worse Keith Cowan was sent off and Hughes dispatched the resultant penalty.Then just three minutes later Hughes scored a stunning goal to put Shelbourne ahead.Harps battled hard for an equaliser but that’s how it stayed in the end and Shelbourne took all three points which brings them right back in the play-off mix.Harps will be left pondering what if again, after yet another defeat in a game in which they’ll be scratching their heads at how they lost it. Wexford scored late on against Cabinteely to make it even worse for Harps while UCD can leapfrog then when they travel to Cobh tomorrow night.AIRTRICITY FIRST DIVISION: HARPS OFF TOP SPOT AS THEY LOSE OUT IN FIVE-GOAL THRILLER AT TOLKA PARK was last modified: June 26th, 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:finn harpsHome-page Sportnewssoccerlast_img read more

Crop profitability a bleak picture in 2016, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio State’s Barry Ward took a look at possible crop profitability in 2017, and as you may imagine, the picture isn’t too bright.“It’s not as good of an outlook as what we would like. Obviously the numbers are pretty negative at this point,” Ward said. “We’ve got a cost structure that’s still a legacy of what we had during those real profitable years. And with prices being lower as a result of maybe bumper crops around most of the Midwest, not Ohio necessarily, we’re looking at some very low to negative returns on all of our major row crops.“If we look at some of the variable costs that we’re expecting for our three major crops — corn for instance — we’re right around $360 an acre for next year, at least our projects right now. And that’s just slightly lower than last year. The only real mover that we’re seeing right now is slightly lower fertilizer prices.”Rent prices also remain a concern, especially with a lengthy turnaround in reevaluation of tax formulas.“We’re continuing to see downward pressure. Interest rates being as low as they are continue to at least prop up to some degree land values,” he said. “One thing that we’re battling right now out in Ohio is higher CAUV value and the property taxes that go along with those.“What we’re seeing is in the calculation that’s occurring for the value is that we’ve got some lags in the numbers, so we do see those property taxes kind of lag what’s going on in the farm economy. And so we’re battling that right now.”With regard to tips for farmers, Ward had the following to say.“Know where you’re at obviously and make sure you have a good read on your equity position is. Make sure that you’re completing a balance sheet each year. Understand what your working capital is so that you know where you’re at presently and what kind of cash that you have to deal with because it’s all about cash flow going forward. Just making sure that you’re paying attention to family living expenses, lowering some of that possibly, examining your machinery and equipment expenses, and looking at all your input costs and looking at return on investment on all of those.”last_img read more

O’s Nip Yanks in 9th, 3-2

first_imgBALTIMORE — It didn’t matter that David Robertson had already pitched two days in a row. The New York Yankees desperately needed to preserve a ninth-inning lead, and their closer insisted he was capable of doing the job.So Robertson got the call, and after he blew the save opportunity in a 3-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on the night of Sept. 14, the right-hander made no excuses.“I just wasn’t able to do it today. I just stunk,” he said. “It’s not how I felt. It’s just how I pitched.”Called upon after Brian McCann homered off Darren O’Day (5-1) in the top of the ninth, Robertson (2-5) gave up three doubles in the bottom half.Nelson Cruz opened with double, and pinch-runner Quintin Berry scored on Steve Pearce’s liner into the left-field corner. One out later, Kelly Johnson — a former Yankee — delivered the game-winner into the gap in right-center.Baltimore celebrated its seventh win in eight games by crowding around Johnson at second base.Martin Prado homered for the Yankees, who lost three of four to the Orioles and dropped five games behind Kansas City in the race for the second wild-card spot.Yankees Manager Joe Girardi had no regret about inserting Robertson, who had converted 36 of his 39 save chances before this one. “I talked to him today and he said he felt OK,” Girardi said. “That’s unfortunate. He’s been great for us all year.”Dellin Betances struck out two in the eighth inning to raise his total for the season to 130, tied with Mariano Rivera for most by a Yankees reliever.But Girardi never considered using Betances in the ninth. “No, no. Absolutely not,” he said.Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was honored and showered with gifts before his final game at Camden Yards. The 40-year-old Jeter, who will retire after this season, went 0-for-4 and is hitless in his last 24 at-bats.His slump is indicative of the Yankees’ hitting woes of late. Second baseman Stephen Drew interrupted a 2-for-35 skid with a fifth-inning bunt, and New York scored only six runs in the four-game series.Orioles starter Chris Tillman gave up one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings, his 19th consecutive start in which he allowed three runs or fewer.Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda limited Baltimore to one run and six hits over seven innings.Any number of Orioles wins and Toronto losses totaling three will give the Orioles their first division title since 1997.Pearce and Johnson aren’t the most notable names on a team with Adam Jones, Nelson Cruz, J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis, but on this club, virtually everyone contributes.“That’s the beauty of a team,” Jones said. “Everyone gets at-bats, everyone gets an opportunity to do something. When an opportunity arises, big bats come through.”(DAVID GINSBURG, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
