first_imgOne of three men accused of burglarizing a Ridgefield house was sentenced Tuesday in Clark County Superior Court to two years in prison.Omar R. Ortega, 36, of Houston, Texas, pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary and third-degree assault in connection with the March 30 incident.His two co-defendants, Jean Carlos Bachemolina, 43, and Edgar Bulles Torres, 36, both of Monroe, La., previously pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary and were sentenced to 20 and 15 months, respectively.According to an affidavit of probable cause, Bachemolina told investigators that he had been in Vancouver for only one night when he, Torres and Ortega went driving around in a van at about 2:45 a.m. Ortega, who was driving, stopped at a dark house in the 2000 block of South Osprey Drive in Ridgefield.Ortega stayed in the van while Torres and Bachemolina pushed on a glass door, breaking it, and went inside. The men didn’t think anyone was home, but Bachemolina found a 31-year-old woman hiding in an upstairs bedroom closet, the affidavit states.The woman was on the phone with a 911 dispatcher, who reportedly heard a “female scream, the sound of a struggle and then the line went dead,” court records said. The burglars took and broke the woman’s phone, according to Ridgefield police.The men ran back to the van and fled, prompting a police pursuit that ended a few miles away when the van stopped abruptly in the middle of the street and all three ran from the vehicle, court documents state.last_img read more

first_imgWASHOUGAL — A loud “Washougal” chant broke out in front of Washougal High School on Thursday afternoon following word that the teachers union had voted unanimously to approve a new contract, ending their strike that started Aug. 28. Between hugs and high-fives, Eric Engebretson, president of the Washougal Association of Educators, yelled to his colleagues, “Let’s get back to work!” to loud applause. As teachers drove from the parking lot, many to go set up their classrooms for Friday’s first day of classes, they honked and waved. All of the 199 members present voted in favor of the deal. Engebretson said there are roughly 205 members in the union.“We landed on an agreement that everybody is happy with,” Superintendent Mary Templeton said. “It’s an agreement we can sustain over time. The 100 percent vote means we got it right. We all are now signaling that we’re ready to start getting school off the ground.”The ratification leaves only teachers in Evergreen and Battle Ground on strike. Washougal joins teachers in Vancouver, Ridgefield and Hockinson to end their strike, and teachers in Camas who voted to approve a strike but reached an agreement before it began.last_img read more

first_imgBy Aja Musu Bah DaffehOn Friday 13th January, 2017 the Banjul ferry terminal was congested with people including women and children fleeing the country to Senegal which started since outgoing President Jammeh’s pronouncement declaring the election result null and void and calling for fresh election.This brought fear and trauma in the minds of Gambians which led them to flee the country without hesitating, thinking that his refusal to step down will result to conflict in the country.According to the United Nation High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), several thousand Gambians have crossed to Senegal in the last 10 days to escape growing tension over the results of the last presidential election.UNHCR team reports seeing buses filled with children accompanied by women cross the border. The report says Senegalese authorities, with the support of UNHCR, are working to strengthen registration systems which will help clarify figures, noting that most arrivals in Senegal are Gambians and Senegalese who have been working or living in The Gambia.Mr. Musa Secka a native of Banjul said the current political situation in the country makes people to move out of the country because they are terrified by seeing soldiers all over the place holding guns which is never a culture in the smiling coast of The Gambia.He asserted that some witnessed and experienced the deadly war in Freetown and Liberia, therefore they would not want to witness another which is why they are running for their lives. “This doesn’t tell well and it’s not a good sign for people fleeing their own country” said Mr. Secka.Ousainou Bojang a resident of Sukuta, who was helping his mother at the terminal to cross to Senegal, said all these problems lie in the hands of the current government noting that there is solution to every problem without putting fear in people.He added that Gambians are controlled by the fear syndrome that staying back will only do harm to their lives, “some are with notion that there will be Military Intervention and international bodies will invade the country with powerful ammunition”.last_img read more

first_imgThis Column is meant to monitor and report on issues that concerns the people of rural communities, in terms of how their development is hindered or facilitated.Rural development is a process that aims to improve the standard of living of people, living in rural communities.According to Robert Chambers, rural development is a strategy that enables a specific group of people, poor rural women and men, gain for themselves and their children, more of what they want and need. It involves helping the poorest among those who seek a livelihood in rural communities, to demand and control more of the benefits of rural development. The group includes small scale farmers, tenants and the landless.Thus, the term rural development may be used to imply any one of the above-mentioned connotations.To avoid the ineffective floundering among the myriad definitions, we shall define rural development as a process that leads to sustainable improvement in the quality of life of rural people, especially the poor.According Ebrima Ceesay, Rural Development entails the accessibility of good road networks, safe and clean drinking water, quality Schools where children can achieve quality and relevant education, electricity, decent housing, improved health facilities and improved living standards of rural dwellers.Ceesay said if these things are available in rural communities, one can say real and meaningful rural development is in the country.Looking at rural Gambia, one can realize that the problem of rural dwellers revolve around the things stated above, which are seriously neglected.To ensure rural development, Ebrima said the first thing that needs to be done is to ensure accessibility, by building good road networks linking rural communities; that if one looks at the rural area, one will discover poor rural road infrastructure.He said he was just coming from Sami district where he visited Bayaba village and Tabanani, with a difficult road network that is un-motorable at this time of the year, talk less of the rainy season; that in these villages, a pregnant woman has to be put on a motor bike or tri-cycle, to travel long hours to get to the main road, not to talk about the closest health facility. Ceesay informed that once communities are linked with good road networks, this can increase the potential for trade and small businesses, as well as mobility from one point the other; that rural road infrastructure is important in ensuring rural development.Ceesay said he was with the National Assembly Select Committee during the inspection of roads built by the NEMA and FASDEP projects; that some of these roads increase the number of people attending weekly markets (lumos) and this boosts the income of the youth with motor cycles to transport people; that these youth earn between D400 to D1,000 during weekly market days.Ebrima Ceesay is an Agricultural Officer posted at Kuntuar Regional Agricultural Directorate in the Central River Regional North. His field of study is Agribusiness Management and Agricultural Extension.last_img read more
