A 14-year old orphan, whose parents died during the civil-war, died after falling from a golden plum tree in Monnisuah Town, in Zuzohn Session, in the Blaydah Chiefdom, Glakon Statutory District #2 ‘A’, Grand Bassa County.The uncle of the deceased, Joseph Gareway, told this newspaper over the weekend that Dehkpoe Garway met his untimely death when he climbed a “golden plump tree in the town to pick some plums and accidentally fell and broke his neck.”He explained that Dehkpoe left their residence in Monrovia to spend time with some of his relatives in Monnisuah Town when the incident occurred.“After the boy’s death, some of the relatives in that town called me via cell phone and I went there for the burial,’’ he said.The Unification Town Chief (UTC) who resides in Monnisuah Town, Robert Yeah has meanwhile passed a law forbidding people from climbing golden plum and other trees to avoid a repeat of the incident.He warned parents to adhere to the law and stop sending their children to pick plums, oranges and doing any other dangerous work.He said besides the death of young Dehkpoe, many others have fallen from plum, orange, and palm trees in the chiefdom leaving some seriously injured and others crippled.

Police investigators are currently probing the highly controversial email purportedly sent from an address in the name of former Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Deputy Chief Executive Officer (DCEO), Ash Deonarine, to a current employee of the utility.The document which surfaced in the public domain last month contains damning allegations against several former and current employees of the utility company. The lengthy email suggests that former GPL acting CEO, Collin Welch, was allegedly framed so that he could be removed from the post. It also outlined instructions to conceal evidence of a massive meter racket within the company.Head of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Senior Superintendent Wendell Blanhum recently told Guyana Times that investigations are ongoing. Investigators are trying to determine the authenticity of the email address and the contents of the mail.However, Minister of State Joseph Harmon had previously declared the preliminary investigations done by the Ministry of Public Infrastructure revealed the email address is fake.“Some preliminary investigations had been done and … the sense that we got from the brief was that it seems that the email address had been fake, made up,” Harmon had stated at a pSenior Superintendent and CID Head Wendell Blanhumost-Cabinet briefing last month.Nevertheless, the Minister of State had pointed out that the contents of the document are of concern to government.“…the content of the email included matters for which as a government we have to have some concern so the police have been given the documents, as I understand from the report given by Minister Patterson, and they are investigating the authenticity of it and any concomitant issues which arises out of that document,” he told reporters.GPL has been in the limelight for close to a year now after Deonarine was sent on administrative leave in August last year following the discovery that he allegedly transferred some $27.8 million to his personal account without the approval of the board of directors. He is also being accused of paying former board member Carvil Duncan a sum of $948,000 that was not authorised.This information was unearthed when the Coalition administration found that close to $142 million of the PetroCaribe Fund was plugged into the operations of the state-owned GPL after it met an empty PetroCaribe fund when it took office and later launched an investigation.
It will be imperative for the team to set the tone early especially in the defensive zone said assistant coach Todd Alexander, given how Fairview had their way with moving the puck to set up offensive opportunities last time out.“I think the biggest thing is the boys have to make body contact in their own zone, it was way too soft last time. I think that we’ll see a different hockey club come out and play a much more spirited game in our own zone. It’s what we need and not so much watching of the puck,” he explained.Defence wasn’t the only focus in practice leading up to Saturday’s game. The Huskies also worked on the power play after they missed out on a 5-3 opportunity against the Flyers that could have significantly altered the momentum in their previous contest.- Advertisement -“We worked on our ten foot game a little bit the first night. That needs to get better for sure. Tonight (Thursday) was a little more technical. We worked more on the power play and focused on passing and try to get our tempo up and get ready for Dawson Creek,” Alexander saidAfter Saturday’s game the Huskies will be off until their home opener on October 17 against the Fairview Flyers.
SANTA ANA – The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange said Friday it will pay nearly $7 million to settle four sexual abuse lawsuits, including one that has the bishop facing contempt of court proceedings for sending a monsignor out of the country before he could testify. The lawsuits, the first of which was to go to trial Oct. 15, involved allegations against three lay teachers at Mater Dei High School and Santa Margarita High School, as well as a lay musician at a neighborhood parish. The case against a coach at Mater Dei High School had put Bishop Tod D. Brown in the extremely unusual position of having to sit for the contempt of court hearing. If the hearing goes forward and Brown is found to be in contempt, he could face a range of sanctions, from a verbal reprimand to fines to jail time. “The settlement of these civil cases represents the moral obligation for the church for such behavior by adults in positions of responsibility,” Brown said in a statement. The diocese will pay $6.685 million to the four plaintiffs, making an average payout of $1.7 million per person. That figure is significantly higher than earlier settlements in the Orange County diocese and in Los Angeles, where plaintiffs received about $1.1 million and $1.3 million, respectively. Attorneys for the bishop said they had not reached the settlement to avoid Brown’s contempt of court hearing, scheduled for Tuesday. Brown will insist on going forward with the hearing to clear his name, said Peter Callahan, the bishop’s attorney. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MONTEBELLO – County officials say a temporary replacement for the burned-down bridge over the Rio Hondo River at Beverly Boulevard could arrive earlier than expected. A temporary bridge, part of which is being leased and trucked in from a company in New Jersey, is scheduled to be completed by Feb. 10, and a high-ranking county official said construction is ahead of schedule. “We’re on a fast-track to beat the date,” said Pat DeChellis, deputy director for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works. “What we need to do is finish what we call abutments, which are the supports that will hold up the replacement. And that’s going well, better than expected.” The eastern third of the bridge burned down Nov. 1, and authorities allege it was started by Nelson Gastelum, who was living under the bridge. Gastelum, who family members said has a history of mental illness, was charged with a felony count of recklessly starting a fire. He is awaiting trial. The temporary bridge will cost about $1.3 million, with Pico Rivera and Montebello chipping in $90,000 each and the county picking up the rest of the tab. The permanent replacement will cost about $10.7 million, according to county officials. The permanent replacement is scheduled to be completed April 2007. Teri Wilkinson, office manager at the Montebello Chamber of Commerce, said the initial feeling of despair among local business owners is slowly turning to optimism. “With Whittier Boulevard under construction and Beverly closed, you just can’t get out of this end of town,” she said. “But people seem pretty happy to know a temporary replacement is coming.” firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 2703

Paradise >> The Paradise High School varsity girls volleyball team showed coach John Parks that they have some fight in them in their five game win over visiting Corning on Thursday night.It also didn’t hurt that senior outside hitter Carly Otten got a little mad and put on an outstanding performance.Otten, in her fourth year of varsity, tied a career high with 19 kills against the Cardinals, in the 25-21, 15-25, 21-25, 26-24, 15-9 win. The last time she did that was on Oct. 20, 2015 against …
20 January 2014 South African Giniel de Villiers and German co-pilot Dirk von Zitzewitz, driving a Toyota Hilux, claimed victory on the 14th and final stage of the 2014 Dakar Rally on Saturday to end the gruelling 13-stage race in fourth place overall. The race started in Argentina and finished in Chile, while the motorcyclists and quad bike riders also ventured into Bolivia. The car category was dominated by Mini, which finished 1-2-3, with Nani Roma and Michel Perin taking the title ahead of Stephane Peterhansel and Jean Paul Cottret, with Nasser Al-Attiyah and Lucas Cruz in third. Marc Coma, on a KTM, dominated the motorbikes category, winning the race by almost two hours over fellow KTM rider Jordi Viladoms and Yamaha’s Olivier Pain.Mini challenge De Villiers and Von Zitzewitz held off four Minis on the final stage to secure the win in an hour, 57 minutes and seven seconds, just 23 seconds of Poland’s Krzyztof Holowczyc and Russia’s Konstantin Zhiltsov. Leeroy Poulter and Duncan Howie, in their first Dakar Rally, came home seven minutes and 41 seconds behind their team mates, De Villiers and Von Zitzewitz, to finish in 12th place on the stage and in 33rd place overall.Privateers South African privateers Thomas Rundle and Juan Mohr, both Dakar rookies like Poulter, finished 18th in De Villiers’ previous Toyota Hilux, just less than 15 minutes behind the 2009 champion, which meant they completed the race in a very creditable 25th place overall. The Toyota team was solid, probably without achieving the heights it was seeking, while the South African-built and run Team Ford Ranger, in Team Ford Racing’s first crack at the Dakar, had some growing pains, with one of their two vehicles failing to finish. Nonetheless, Argentinia’s Lucio Alvarez and Bernardo Graue, in one of the Rangers, placed 23rd on the final stage to hold onto their 22nd position overall in the final standings.Motorbikes In the motorbike category, Brett Cummings, on a KTM, finished the final stage in 35th place to place 28th overall, while Riaan van Niekerk came home in 75th place on the final stage. That result was very misleading as Van Niekerk, recognising that he had a lead of more than an hour over the man behind him, waited for race leader and fellow KTM rider Marc Coma, who started 38 minutes after the South African, to ride with the Spanish star and ensure he finished. In the end, Van Niekerk finished in 12th place overall and won the Super Production class for a second year in succession. He was also the first non-factory rider to finish.
24 August 2015For the first time since construction began eight years ago, the Medupi Power Station in Limpopo is finally pumping power. The first unit of Medupi, unit six, was handed over to its operating division on Sunday, 23 August.Unit six will feed 794 megawatts (MW) of power into the national grid. The unit has been online since March, but it has been undergoing testing for the past five months. The first unit was projected to go online in 2011.Although unit six is pumping enough power to serve a city the size of Bloemfontein, Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said that it did not mean the end of load shedding.In an interview with eNews Africa Channel, Phasiwe said the unit would help Eskom to reduce the risk of load shedding; however, this did not mean load shedding would end. “In the past two weeks we have not had load shedding and the biggest contributor to this was the new unit and reduced consumption.”The contractors had been working on unit six for the past seven years.According to news reports, Medupi has been contributing almost 800MW to the power grid since March in an effort to alleviate load shedding. “This power is not a thoroughly new power per say. It is power that we have been using all along,” said Phasiwe.On average, South Africa demanded 29 000MW, said Phasiwe. In its current state, Medupi takes national generation capacity from 42 800MW to 43 600MW.Five more units still have to be brought online, each generating 794MW. Eskom plans to have all six units fully functional by 2019. Once complete, Medupi will be one of the biggest coal power stations in the world.In July, City Press reported that the government estimated the overall cost of the station to be at least R105-billion. However, the newspaper added independent analysts believed the entire project would come up to R300-billion, which was 10 times the original amount when the contract for the power station was signed.The Medupi site covers 883 hectares and the highest point of the plant, the chimneys, will reach 220m. When complete, Medupi will be the fourth-largest coal power station in the southern hemisphere, and the largest dry-cooled coal power station in the world.SAinfo reporter

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As we all know too well, farming incomes can fluctuate from year to year depending on yields, market conditions, and of course in Ohio, the weather. In certain years a farmer could have large profits subject to higher tax rates and the following year have a loss or little profit that results in a minimal tax liability. Due to the uncertain variables that affect farming, farmers should consider using farm income averaging. What is Farm Income Averaging (FIA)?Farm income averaging (FIA) is a tax management tool that can be elected after the end of the tax year. In simple terms, farm income averaging allows you to spread a certain amount of your farm income over three years. If you are in a higher tax bracket in the current year and the three preceding years in a lower tax bracket, you will be able to reduce this year’s federal tax liability. The spreading of the income is done equally over the past three years and you cannot pick and choose how much to allocate to each year. There is no change to income reported for the three base years. Rather, the unused portion of the tax brackets (of the three base years) are used in the FIA calculation to determine the current year tax liability.Farm income averaging does not create or increase alternative minimum tax (AMT), and FIA does not reduce your self-employment tax. However, if your adjusted gross income is above certain levels, you will still be subject to the net investment income tax.It is not necessary for the individual to have been engaged in farming in any prior year; it is only necessary that the individual be engaged in farming in the current year. Also, it is not necessary that an individual have any specific percentage of gross receipts from farm sources to use farm income averaging. An individual engaged in a farming business includes a sole proprietor, a partner, and a shareholder in an S corporation. Estates and trusts are not individuals for this purpose and cannot use income averaging. What constitutes farm income for purposes of FIA?The IRS defines a farming business as one involved in the trade of cultivating land or the raising or harvesting of any agricultural or horticultural commodity. This excludes buying and reselling plants or animals raised by someone else, or the harvesting under contract of agricultural or horticultural commodities grown by someone else.Farm income includes items of income, deduction, gain, and loss attributable to the individual’s farming business. Some examples of what does and does not constitute farm income are as follows:Rental income based on a share of production from a tenant’s farming business is farm income regardless of whether the taxpayer materially participates if the income is determined under a written agreement.Cash rent farmers are excluded from utilizing FIA.Income, gain, or loss from the sale of development rights, grazing rights, and other similar rights are not treated as farm income.Compensation received by an employee generally is not farm income; however, a shareholder of an S corporation engaged in farming may treat compensation from the corporation that is attributable to the farming business as farming income.Gain on the sale or other disposition of property (other than land) the taxpayer regularly used in a farming business for a substantial period of time (as determined by all the facts and circumstances) can be treated as elected farm income.A very important consideration — you should not automatically assume that all of the farm income should be elected farm income. In some instances, it may be advantageous for the elected farm income amount to be a lesser amount, depending on the taxpayer’s current and prior year marginal tax rates.Let’s take a look at an example:Virgil (married and filing a joint return) is a crop producer with 2015 Schedule F income of $150,000 and taxable income of $175,000. Virgil’s regular tax liability, without income averaging, would be $36,050, with a marginal tax rate of 28%. If Virgil had $11,000 of the unused 15% bracket for each of the three base years to compute his 2015 income tax, he could elect to average $33,000, and this would be taxed at 15%. With income averaging, Virgil’s regular income tax liability would be $31,760, a savings of $4,290 ($33,000 x (.28-.15)). Other points to consider with income averagingWhere profits are rising, FIA yields an immediate benefit,Where profits are falling, the taxable profit resulting from FIA will be higher than it would have been if FIA was not used.Once made, the election may be revoked with permission from the IRS; therefore, it is important that all relevant factors be considered.Farm families whose non-farm income has increased sharply (new off-farm job) would be eligible to average their farm income and perhaps reduce their current tax liability. Only the farm income is eligible for the averaging.Retiring farmers and others disposing of assets may also be able to take advantage of FIA.Income averaging can be a tool for a farmer in a situation in which the usual tax strategies do not work; however, FIA is not a substitute for important year-end planning considerations to minimize a farmer’s tax liability.
