Prosecutors knocked over plea in case of alleged rape

first_imgThe Clark County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office is experiencing a nationwide firestorm after a Vancouver man accused of raping a 15-year-old girl was offered a plea deal and sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in jail.Chief Criminal Deputy Prosecutor Camara Banfield said she’s received numerous calls and emails from people, including victims of sexual assault, from across the country. The Columbian’s Thursday story — “Man accused of raping girl, 15, gets 90 days” — garnered dozens of comments online and hundreds in other places, and was shared by news outlets, such as The Seattle Times.The defendant, Efrain Marcos Rodriguez III, 27, entered an “in re Barr” plea in Clark County Superior Court to communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. The plea allows a defendant to plead guilty to a lesser related charge he didn’t commit in order to avoid conviction for a greater offense. The original charge of third-degree child rape was amended as part of a plea deal. Rodriguez was sentenced to 364 days in jail, with 274 days of the time suspended for two years. He was given credit for 89 days in custody.Banfield has spoken with many concerned community members, she said, and believes that they deserve to have more information about the prosecuting attorney’s office’s policies on sexual assault, particularly when it comes to children who have been victimized.“Our victims come first. We may make decisions they don’t like — not in this case — but it’s for their well-being,” she said. “We do believe this was the best result. This is what the victim wanted.”last_img read more

La Center council candidates discuss plans

first_imgLa Center’s questionable financial future is on the mind of many residents, and a big topic of discussion among candidates for city council.The biggest issue facing the city is “finding another source of business to offset the cardrooms,” according to Larry Lewton, 67, one of two candidates running for Position No. 2 in the city.His competitor for Position No. 2, Jon Stimmel, 38, wrote in an email that changes to La Center’s budget and income are the most urgent issues the city is facing.“It is my hope that budget cuts are the absolute last resort to solving budgetary shortcomings, but if the local tax base cannot be raised through new business and other revenue streams, cuts will be unavoidable,” he wrote. “We have relied upon the local cardrooms for a long time, but this is not likely to be an option with the addition of the Cowlitz casino.”The tribe opened its Ilani Casino Resort April 24 just west of the city limits, putting La Center’s finances into question since cardroom tax revenue has historically made up a large portion of the city’s general fund. The New Phoenix Casino in La Center closed March 26, leaving the city with two cardrooms: the Palace Casino and Last Frontier Casino.last_img read more

“Gambians need to develop a reading culture….” Says the Deputy D.G….

first_imgBy Sailu Bah“Gambians need to develop a reading culture which is lacking in the country partly due to the high illiteracy rate. An evidence of this is that few people in the country make use of the services offered by the national library. ” said Mrs. Matilda Johnson, Deputy Director General of the Gambia National Library Service Authority (GNLSA), in an interview on the 23July 2014 at her office at the National Library in Banjul.Mrs. Johnson said the people who make use of the National Library mostly are the students who only come there when they are on exams because the place offers them a quiet environment for reading. “They come here in groups and once their exams are finish you seldom see them in the Library,” she added.The Deputy Director General of the National Library Service lamented that few adults find time to come and subscribe to the Library and make use of its facilities.She said the importance of such a facility as a national library is the development of the country by developing the human intellect and raising awareness cannot be overemphasized. “The library is a very important institution where people can go and read to develop their reading skills or a reading culture, make research on academic or other issues, career counseling or research on how to improve on one’s profession, prepare for exams, etc,” she said.The Library Service Deputy Director said there is a section in the Library called ‘Gambiana’ which contains information concerning the Gambia from the colonial era to date. She said most of the books or materials in this section are written by Gambian authors or experts. “It is one of the most interesting sections in the Library of which people coming from abroad do visit to make some research about the country,” she disclosed.On plans to address this challenge, Mrs. Johnson said they are trying to develop the culture of reading by starting to train school teachers and librarians who will also encourage the young children at school to develop interest and engage in reading.Mrs. Johnson said the Library Service Authority is planning to engage in an intensive public awareness campaign and will be organizing a “Library Week” with such academic activities that involve children in writing poems, quiz competitions and debates among others. She said they also plan to start a ‘Children Magazine’ and to undertake activities such as street shows, T-Shirts, Banners and Flyers to inform the people about the importance of the Library. She said they will be utilising the media such as the radio, TV and newspapers in this awareness raising drive.Explaining the history of the national library in the Gambia, Mrs. Johnson said it was first established by the then Anglican priest, Bishop Daley, in 1944 as a library based on subscription. This library, she said, was not opened to the public and was limited to few people.Later in 1946, she said, the British Council established a public library at Clifton Road, which is now called Independence Drive, where the National Museum is currently located. She said it was in the early 70s when they handed over the management of the library to the Gambia Government and which later constructed and moved to a new library complex (its present location) that was opened by the former president Jawara on the 15th December 1976. She said the British Council was one of the sponsors who supplied the library with books and keep it updated.The first Gambian Librarian, said deputy DG of the Library Service Authority, was Ms Sally P.C. Njie, who served from 1976 to the early 80s and handed over to Ms Mary Faye as Chief Librarian, who also upon retirement was succeeded by the current Director General, Mr. Abdou Wally Mbye.“The library was directly under the Ministry of Education, but now stands as an independent Authority and the name has changed from the Gambia National Library to Gambia National Library Service Authority,” she noted.Explaining the management structure of the Authority, she said the institution is now headed by a Director General, who is assisted by Directors, Senior Librarians, Assistant Librarians, Senior Library Assistants, Junior Librarian Assistants, Library Clerks, Data Entry Clerks, , Procurement Office and support and ancillary staff.Mrs. Johnson said the Library is operating in both Banjul and Brikama with 45 members of staff under the Authority, adding that there was another Branch in Basse which was closed due to some constraints.“We were also having 2 mobile van libraries with one going to the North Bank of the country and the other to the South Bank. Right now the vans are no more in operation because they are not conducive to the climate here,” she revealed.On how they work, she explained that the Library operates from Mondays to Fridays, starting from 9am to 7pm, and on Saturdays from 9am to 2pm, adding that the workers have two shifts, namely the morning shift and the afternoon shift.The Authority, she noted, gets its funds to sustain its operation from the Government of the Gambia and from which they pay the salary of their staff. They also receive donations from the friends of the Library i.e. the Gambians and non-Gambians living in the Diaspora, who help them with either cash or books, adding that they also get books from Timbuktu, Macmillan and ABC bookshop.On their operational constraints, the Deputy Director General noted that they do not have scholarships for the further training of their staff to enable them to become professionals. She said the Library needs degree holders as well to enable it to further deliver professional and standard services.“We do conduct in house training for our staff, but this is not sufficient. Our staff needs further training up to university level,” she said.Another challenge highlighted by Mrs. Johnson regarding their operation concerns the borrowing of books which, she revealed, is face with problems. She said when they give out their books it is always hard to get most of them back or that sometimes when they are returned, they come back in a bad state or condition.“Managing a library is very expensive as you need to be constantly buying books in order to keep it updated. So funds are a big problem to us,” she disclosed.She also noted that the Library is situated in a flood prone area and that they are appealing to Government to allocate a better place for them to relocate the National Library.Mrs. Johnson concluded by inviting people, adults and students alike, to develop interest and maximize their use of the facilities being offered by the National Library. She announced that the annual subscription fee for adults is only D60 and D15 for children. “When you pay this annual subscription fees, you can take any book of your choice for reading for not more than one week and then you return it back to the library, then if you wish to take another you can,” said the Deputy Director General.The National Library is located at Percy Pye Lane (behind Gambia Senior Secondary School) in Banjul and opposite the former Senegalese Ecole Francaise. ]]>last_img read more

Govt Focused On Growing Creative Industries

first_img Related Items:creative industries, Minister ANTHONY Hylton Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, July 6 (JIS): Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, says the Government is implementing measures to facilitate the growth and prosperity of the creative industries.The initiatives, he said, are in recognition of the creative industries as a generator of wealth for the mass of Jamaicans, and a driver of gross domestic product (GDP) growth.“This is why it is linked to the growth agenda…and captured in a number of things…like the Vision 2030 plan, the national growth agenda, and it is the reason why the Creative and Cultural Industries Commission was created,” Minister Hylton noted, while addressing a recent JIS News Think Tank.Among the measures being put in place to promote the creative industries, is the passage and enactment of the Security Interests in Personal Property (SIPP) Act. The legislation provides for increased access to financing by micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME), by allowing personal property (non-real estate assets) to be used as collateral for loans.This means that owners of creative works, innovators and inventors, are now able to leverage their intellectual property (IP), such as copyright, patents and trademarks to be used as collateral.He informed that the National Export-Import Bank of Jamaica (EXIM) has been mandated to work with the Government in order to increase loan access, with other institutions slated to follow suit.“So, the banks need to get very creative and our traditional financial institutions should start soon to work with intellectual capital of various forms whether it be film, music, animation, art, drama,” he said.Minister Hylton informed that talks have been held with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for assistance “to work with the banks and to help them with IP evaluation…so that they can mitigate the risks around that kind of activity to drive sustained growth and build inclusion.”As it relates to copyright, Minister Hylton told JIS News that the Ministry has accepted the Senate’s comments on the Copyright Act.“The amendments to the Act are tremendous and will give this creative economy a significant lift and part of the deliberate strategy to build a framework to move away from real estate-based activity as a source of access to capital,” he noted.The Bill, which was passed on June 9, 2015 in the House of Representatives, extends copyright protection from 50 to 95 years, for content belonging to corporations. Authors of literary works, dramatic, and musical creations will also enjoy the added protection. Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Private citizens blamed partly for mosquito infestation

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 30 Oct 2015 – Private property owners and private residents are a big part of the problem of mosquito infestation – some deliberately and others inadvertently – these views are being expressed in social media strings and by some politicians. Vociferous residents have chimed in on the popular Speak Your Mind TCI to say that ‘nastiness’ is to blame for some of the inundation of mosquitoes; these residents say there are just too many people prepared to throw garbage along the roadways and that is a known haven for mosquito breeding. In a media statement, another challenge brought to light may not be so irresponsible according to former PDM leader and current PDA Leader, Oswald Skippings. Skippings called the PNP Administration insensitive. “…some of the owners are unemployed and are struggling to survive and therefore cannot afford to pump the water off their property. Government must also understand that while it may be a private property, the possible resulting problems may affect the entire community if not the entire island and country.” Skippings accuses the Government of refusing to pump water out of areas like Five Cays, which he says still has standing water from Hurricane Joaquin. During the recent House of Assembly debate, Minister responsible for public works, George Lightbourne said over $400,000 was approved at Cabinet for work and repairs in the aftermath of the hurricane. Environmental Health on Thursday shared the fogging schedule for Provo and explained to Magnetic Media that both North and Middle Caicos are being sprayed daily.

Soldiers graves graced by Old Glory

first_imgThe graves of about 1,500 veterans received individual salutes Thursday afternoon, just ahead of the Memorial Day weekend.Volunteers placed small flags — most of them red, white and blue — at grave markers in Vancouver’s historic Post Cemetery.Members of Vancouver’s Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7824 organized the project, with help from other community volunteers.It’s become an annual scene-setter heading into the weekend slate of commemorative observances, including planned ceremonies in Vancouver, Camas, Washougal, La Center and Ridgefield.“All the graves get a flag,” said Richard Alvarez, an Army veteran and VFW member. And some markers get more than one.Several soldiers who won the Medal of Honor are buried at the cemetery, just off Interstate 5 and south of East Fourth Plain Boulevard. Their graves are distinguished by a pale blue Medal of Honor flag with 13 white stars.Not all flag recipients fought for our country, Alvarez noted. Some family members of soldiers were buried in the post cemetery near their fathers or husbands. The names of those family members often were inscribed on the reverse side of the soldiers’ grave markers.At those family plots, the volunteers put flags at the front and the back of the markers, Alvarez said.And, a handful of the flag recipients actually fought against us, Alvarez said. During World War II, German and Italian prisoners of war were transported to Vancouver. Some of the POWs died here and were buried here.Their graves are marked by green, white and red Italian flags, and the black, red and gold flags of unified Germany.The county’s Memorial Day observances include:Saturday• Fern Prairie, 11 a.m., Fern Prairie Cemetery, 25700 N.E.
