Forty-eight-year-old Lona France of Independence Boulevard, Albouystown, Georgetown, who sustained a fractured left leg, fractured left hand, fractured left hip, and a punctured lung after being struck down on Friday evening as she attempted to cross the Houston Public Road, Greater Georgetown, is listed in stable condition at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC).A senior Police source informed this newspaper on Sunday that the woman is recovering from her injuries, and Guyana Times understands that, in the coming days, France will undergo a surgery to further alleviate her condition.France was struck by a motorcar reportedly being driven by Oswald Michael. This driver has been detained, and reports suggest that speeding was involved.The woman was said to be proceeding along the Houston Public Road, and as she approached Meadow Bank, reportedly ended up in the path of the vehicle, causing her to fall to the roadway, where she received injuries.She was picked up in an unconscious state and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where she was examined and admitted.Police had, on Friday, stated that speeding, inattentiveness, and pedestrians crossing in the path of approaching vehicles were the main causes of fatal accidents.In fact, for the year thus far, 2,935 cases have been made out by the Police Traffic Department for speeding, and 155 for careless driving.

Reports are that theKeiola ThomasPoliceman, a resident of Supply, Mahaica, was proceeding south along the eastern side of the road at a fast rate of speed when, at about 14:15h, he lost control of the vehicle, and it rocketed into two Guyana Power and Light utility poles situated on the eastern side of the road before plunging into a nearby canal, where it appeared to be badly mangled.According to the Police, both parties were rushed to the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital with injuries.

Hero CPL 2018 Match 12…Fresh off a record run chase, defending Hero Caribbean Premier League champs Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) come up against the in-form Jamaica Tallawahs in a highly-anticipated clash at the Fort Lauderhill Ground, Florida on Sunday, August 19.Oshane ThomasEach side having demonstrated their power-hitting abilities over the course of the competition, TKR will certainly have their tails up following their gunning down of a 200-plus run record total a few nights ago. The orchestrators of that heist were Darren Bravo and Brendon McCullum, who mauled the St Lucia Stars’ bowlers to end on 96 and 68 respectively.Darren BravoAgainst a strong Tallawahs bowling attack, with leg-spinner Adam Zampa, Pakistan’s Imad Wasim, Guyanese off-spinner Steven Jacobs, Samuel Badree, along with their two main weapons in Oshane Thomas and left-arm veteran Krishmar Santokie, Trinbago would want more from their top three.Ross TaylorWhile Sunil Narine remains an X-factor with the ball and bat, it is the form of Chris Lynn that will worry TKR, as the Aussie power-hitter has misfired on a few occasions but could turn his luck around playing in home-like conditions.Colin Munro, with a couple of CPL tons under his belt and a few starts this season, will need to kick on batting at three, along with the veteran Denesh Ramdin, who remains a key figure in the middle.With the six-hitting exhibition Bravo and McCullum put on a few nights ago, TKR would want to see the left-handed pocket rocket and the former New Zealand skipper — who has one of the fastest Test hundreds — pick up from where they left off days ago.Brendon McCullumThe Champs’ bowling flaws were exposed by the Stars, with skipper Dwayne Bravo’s economy rate climbing in T20s as he leaked runs, while Speedster Shannon Gabriel, medium-pacer Javon Searles, USA fast bowler Ali Khan, Australian spinner Fawad Ahmed and Narine will all have roles to play with the ball for TKR.Jamaica can breathe easy, as their batting has been clicking in a huge way, with the flashy South African Glenn Phillips and his partner Kennar Lewis both having runs under their bat, while former New Zealand Captain Ross Taylor, Rovman Powell and Russell are all in dangerous hitting form.Coupled with their wide array of quality bowling, the former champs will fancy this encounter, as a high volume of boundaries is expected to rain at the Lauderhill Park Ground when these two powerhouse franchises collide from 18:00h.

ANAHEIM – Beating the Edmonton Oilers like a gong was a special treat for the Ducks, no question about that. But it was the manner in which they thumped the Oilers that pleased the Ducks after a 5-1 victory Friday night at the Honda Center. Ryan Getzlaf scored twogoals and added an assist. Edmonton coach Craig MacTavish went with an extraordinarily quick hook after the first of Getzlaf’s two goals, replacing goalie Jussi Markkanen with Dwayne Roloson. “I don’t think I’ve ever done that,” Getzlaf said of driving Markkanen from the game. “I think that’s a first in my career.” Edmonton lost its sixth consecutive game and appears destined to miss the playoffs – oneseason after losing to the Carolina Hurricanes in the Stanley Cup Finals. Don’t expect any tears of sympathy from the Ducks, whose march to the finals was derailed by the Oilers in the Western Conference finals last May. What’s more, the Ducks have injury concerns of their own. Defenseman Chris Pronger did not play for the second game because of a broken bone in his left big toe. He is expected to be out for at least two weeks. And center Todd Marchant sat out for the 10th game because of a lower abdominal strain. Edmonton’s sickbay was jammed with so many injured regulars that MacTavish could dress only 17 skaters, one brick shy of the normal 18-man load. He then sent Markkanen, who had flu-like symptoms, to the dressing room after 78 seconds. firstname.lastname@example.org (310) 540-4201 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

That’s four goals and threeassists from the youthful second line, a sign the Pacific Division-leading Ducks (41-17-11) might not have to rely on one line for scoring once the Stanley Cup playoffs begin next month. “If we’re going to have success in the playoffs, then we’re going to need to play well and compete like that every night,” said top-line center Andy McDonald, who also had a goal. “It’s about balanced scoring.” McDonald was the fifth Duck to record his 20th goal of the season, joining Teemu Selanne (39), Penner (25), Getzlaf (23) and Chris Kunitz (22). No other team in Ducks history has had five 20-goal scorers. “We’re going to need it,” McDonald said of the Ducks’ newfound scoring depth. “They’re a huge part of our team and we’re only going to have success if they play well.” Getzlaf got the Ducks started on their fourth consecutive victory on their eight-game homestand, scoring a power-play goal only 1:18 into the game. The Ducks lead the San Jose Sharks and Dallas Stars by 10points in the Pacific.

ANTELOPE VALLEY – Lancaster’s population increased by 3.8 percent last year and Palmdale’s by 3 percent, making them among the fastest-growing cities in Los Angeles County, according to state population statistics released this week. Although Lancaster grew at a faster rate, Palmdale retained its position as the largest city in the Antelope Valley, growing from 141,199 people to 145, 468. Lancaster’s population increased to 143,818 people, up from 138,562, according to the state Department of Finance. “It helps out our real estate industry, because people are buying homes, and it helps out our business community,” Palmdale Councilman Mike Dispenza said. “As far as services, we’re not so stretched that we can’t absorb 4,000 or 5,000 people.” Although housing sales have slowed from the furious pace of a year or two ago, there are still eager prospective buyers, Palmdale officials said. Palmdale is seeing interest in housing on its east side, and two large master-planned communities are under construction on the west side: the 5,000-home Anaverde and the 7,200-home Ritter Ranch. In terms of percentage of growth, Lancaster ranked No. 3 and Palmdale No. 4 in the county, topped only by tiny Irwindale, which grew by 6.2 percent to 1,655 residents, and Santa Clarita, which grew by 5.7 percent. Santa Clarita’s growth of 9,527 new residents was attributed mainly to an annexation. “We have worked hard to attract new residents and new businesses to our community,” said Lancaster Mayor Henry Hearns. “We welcome the new residents represented by this population report. It is our goal to be the most desirable place to live, work, visit and play.” The Antelope Valley city that is in Kern County – California City – grew by 8.9 percent to 13,123 residents. In terms of percentage, that rate was the hottest in Kern County, according to state statistics. The fastest-growing city in the state, in terms of percentage, was Beaumont in Riverside County at 21.2 percent. That city’s population is now estimated at 28,250 residents. In sheer numbers rather than proportion of population, the state’s fastest-growing city was Los Angeles, which added 37,658 residents to raise its total past the 4 million mark.
0Shares0000Daniel Cousin, who was general manager of the Gabon national team, has taken over as coach © AFP / ISSOUF SANOGOLIBREVILLE, Gabon, Sep 25 – Former Gabon international Daniel Cousin has become the sole coach of the national team after Pierre-Francois Aubame Eyang, father of Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, refused an offer to join the set-up.“We have worked hard to confirm the choice of Daniel Cousin, to whom we entrust the national team,” the Gabonese Minister of Sports, Alain-Claude Bilie By Nze, told media on Monday after a meeting of the Gabonese Football Federation (Fegafoot). Last week, Fegafoot announced that Pierre-Francois Aubame Eyang and Cousin would work together coaching the Panthers.On Friday, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slammed the decision to name his father without a deal being finalised, saying his father was in bad health and had no intention of taking the job.“You wonder why I have problems with you? Why I don’t want to be in the squad any longer?” Aubameyang said in an Instagram post late Friday.“The president of the federation called my dad but didn’t even bother to ask about his state of health. He’s sick at the moment.”Fegafoot admitted this was “a situation which could have been avoided,” blaming the sports minister for making a premature announcement. It added, however, that Aubame Eyang, who played 80 times for Gabon, “had on several occasions expressed his desire to train the national team”.Cousin, a 41-year-old former striker, played 56 times for Gabon and had been general manager of the Panthers since 2014. He had stints with Lens, Rangers and Hull City.“As a former captain, being able to train this team is seeing a dream come true,” Cousin told the media.Gabon’s previous coach, Spaniard Jose Antonio Camacho, was sacked in mid-September after Gabon lost 1-0 to Zambia in a friendly. In less than two years in the job, he won just two matches, losing seven and drawing eight.The Panthers are due to play South Sudan twice next month in qualifying for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
