Budd Inlet Closed For Shellfish Harvesting

first_imgSubmitted by Thurston County Public HealthA marine biotoxin that causes diarrhetic shellfish poison (DSP) has been detected at unsafe levels in shellfish in Budd Inlet in Thurston County.  As a result, Washington Department of Health and Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Department have closed all of Budd Inlet to recreational shellfishing from Boston Harbor and the tip of Cooper Point in the north to the southern end of the inlet along Olympia’s waterfront.Shellfish sampled this week from West Bay in Budd Inlet contained DSP biotoxin at 17 micrograms per 100 grams shellfish, which is above the safety limit of 16 micrograms per 100 grams established by the Washington State Department of Health.Warning signs have been posted at public beaches alerting people not to collect shellfish due to the biotoxin closure.  The existing swimming and shellfish harvest closures due to pollution in lower Budd Inlet and near wastewater treatment plant outfalls remain in effect.DSP biotoxin is an emerging health threat in Washington State. The first confirmed cases of illness caused by DSP in Washington State were in July 2011 when three people were sickened after eating shellfish harvested in Sequim Bay in Clallam County.  This Budd Inlet closure is the first DSP closure to occur in South Puget Sound waters.DSP symptoms can begin from 30 minutes to 12 hours after eating contaminated shellfish, causing nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, with diarrhea being the most commonly reported symptom.  Most symptoms subside within 72 hours.DSP biotoxins are produced by naturally occurring algae, and can accumulate in the flesh of molluscan shellfish, making the shellfish unsafe to eat.  Marine biotoxins are not destroyed by cooking or freezing.  Shellfish harvested commercially that are available in stores and restaurants are tested for toxin prior to distribution, and are safe to eat.Recreational shellfish harvesters should always call the DOH Biotoxin Hotline at 1-800-562-5632 or check the DOH website at before harvesting shellfish anywhere in Washington State.

Liquor Control Board Issues First Marijuana Retailer Licenses

first_imgSubmitted by Washington State Liquor Control BoardThe Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) today issued the state’s first 24 marijuana retailer licenses. A complete listing, including contact information of the new retail licensees, can be found online within the Public Records section of the WSLCB website.The 24 applicants were notified via email early this morning that they were approved for a retail license. Once approved for a license, producers and/or processors are able to file a required manifest for transporting to retail locations. Following a 24 hour quarantine period, they may begin transporting products to retail stores. Marijuana retailers may begin selling marijuana at their discretion following receipt of product and entering it in to the traceability system.Businesses receiving their licenses today represent the first of 334 licenses allotted by the WSLCB for retail sales who have successfully completed the licensing process. Locations receiving licenses were selected by taking into account population, geographic dispersion and the individual applicant’s readiness to be licensed.Today’s issuance of the first retail licenses represents the latest step following nearly 18 months of establishing a tightly controlled and comprehensive system of producing, processing and retailing recreational marijuana. Highlights include:Crafting the rules governing Washington’s recreational marijuana system;Establishing a traceability system for tracking marijuana products from production to retailEstablishing a system and certification requirements for laboratories and testing procedures for labs testing recreational marijuana;Building and training marijuana licensing, enforcement and financial teams for administering and enforcing the law;Conducting thorough criminal and financial investigations of all license types;Developing a process for a third-party to conduct a double-blind lottery for establishing an ordered list of retail license applicants; andActively working with industry members, public agencies and community organizations to further public and consumer safety education.The WSLCB was especially concerned with the impact to children. There are strict rules regarding packaging, labeling and advertising to ensure they not appeal to children. In June, the LCB announced emergency rules that include a label and product approval process.WSLCB licensing investigators will continue to issue producer, processor and retailer licenses as those applications are completed. To date the WSLCB has licensed over 687,000 square feet of plant canopy for marijuana production, roughly the equivalent of a dozen football fields.For more information including summaries of the rules frequently requested lists please visit the LCB website at Facebook7Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Scorpions need more sting – Miller

first_imgCaptain Nikita Miller believes a lack of penetration on behalf of his fast bowlers was the main reason behind the Jamaica Scorpions’ seven, wickets defeat to the Guyana Jaguars in their West Indies Cricket Board Four-day Tournament clash at Sabina Park yesterday. Set a modest 182 to win and resuming on 79 for two, the Jaguars achieved their target at 184 for three late in the morning session of the final day. Leading the way for the visitors, who have now leapfrogged Jamaica as leaders, was the previously out-of-form Vishal Singh, who ended unbeaten on 63, and all-rounder Raymon Reifer, who closed on 37 not out. Reifer, who claimed seven for 60 in the Scorpions second innings total of 188, was also named man of the match. Jamaica, in their first innings tallied 255 to which Guyana had replied with 262. “Our fast bowlers failed to step up to the plate in both innings, and I think that played a major role in losing,” assessed Miller. “Guyana is known to not play fast bowling that well, and in the first innings, our pace bowlers did not claim one wicket, and in the second two, one came when the game was virtually done and dusted. “This is a concern for us, and something, as a unit, we will have to address going forward.” Jamaica, who enjoyed a three- point lead at the top of the table over the Jaguars heading into the contest, played three seamers. First innings Leading the charge was the experienced Jerome Taylor, who along with former West Indies Under-19 standout, Marquino Mindley, shared the new ball in the first innings. All-rounder Derval Green was the other option. Taylor, in the first innings, finished with none for 43 from 13 overs, Mindley none for 22 from eight, and Green, none for 42 from 11. The second innings, in the meantime, closed with Taylor ending with none of 33 off eight overs, Green, whom Taylor shared the new ball with in the second innings, one for 29 off six, and Mindley, one of 19 off 10. This is contrast to their spin bowlers. In the first innings, Miller with four for 69, part-time off-spinner Andre McCarthy, three for 18, and leg-spinner Damion Jacobs, two for 35 led the way. Miller, one for 32, claimed the other wicket to fall in the second innings. Jamaica will next play mid-table contenders the Leeward Islands Hurricanes at Sabina Park in a historic regional four-day encounter, starting at 3pm on Friday.

Government Cries Foul

first_img“While we appreciate the assistance from governments and other partners from across the world in our fight against Ebola, it should be noted that no amount of external assistance can be more appreciated by the Liberian people in these trying times than to be treated with respect and dignity.” A Foreign Ministry press statement read, by Foreign Minister Augustine Kpehe Ngafuan at the daily news briefing of the Ministry of Information, Culture, and Tourism (MICAT) last Wednesday, expressed deep concern over a rising trend of measures and reactions on the part of some members of the global community that can only be described as disproportionate and panic-driven. The Foreign Ministry, as a way of averting and promptly responding to travel and other complications that may be experienced by Liberians due to stigmatization, disclosed a series of local and international phone numbers, and email addresses as well as the Ministry’s FaceBook address. These measures, the Statement noted, are inconsistent with advice from the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and other experts. Of recent, Morocco has expressed skepticism about hosting the African Cup of Nations in Rabat fearing that people from Ebola-affected countries may spread the disease in that north African country. “Blanket visa suspensions and other extremely harsh actions do not necessarily isolate Ebola; they only isolate countries affected by Ebola; and by so doing, they do not only undermine the ability of affected countries to effectively and expeditiously fight the disease but also compound the long-term socio-economic impacts of the Ebola crisis”, the statement said. Also citing another reference to the UN, the Government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the UN Security Council, in its unanimous Resolution 2177 “expressed concern about the detrimental effect of the isolation of the affected countries as a result of trade and travel restrictions imposed on the affected countries”, and called on “Member States, including of the region, to lift general travel and border restrictions, imposed as a result of the Ebola outbreak, that contribute to the further isolation of the affected countries”. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs asserted that these harsh measures also run counter to the September 18, 2014 UN Security Council Resolution 2177, sponsored by over 130 countries, and the decision of the Extraordinary Meeting of the Executive Council of the African Union (AU) held on September 8, 2014 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Ministry, meanwhile paid tribute to the many countries, whether big or small, that have rendered exemplary assistance and empathy to Liberia since the outset of the Ebola epidemic in the country, adding that those countries deserve tremendous credit for the progress Liberia is beginning to register in its fight against Ebola. Minister Ngafuan termed this situation as the height of unfairness and blanket stigmatization attitudes by some countries to treat every Liberian who constitutes a part of the country’s 4 million population as though he or she is an Ebola carrier because over 6,000 persons have been infected with the virus in Liberia since March 2014. The statement also noted that countries perpetrating these harsh measures do not take into consideration such particularities as to whether or not the Liberian passport holder had in fact been in Liberia over the past one month or so or whether or not the passport holder had come in close contact with any infected person. The Liberian Government, the Statement noted, has protested against these unnecessary restrictions and stigmatization through a variety of channels, including direct diplomatic contacts to the countries involved and advocacy at multilateral fora, including the AU and the United Nations.  The contact channels will afford Liberians facing these stigmatizing circumstances the opportunity to alert the Ministry of the specifics of their case: “While we cannot guarantee that acceptable redress will be found in every case, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs assures the general Liberian public that it will exhaust all available diplomatic options to bring relief to Liberians or groups of Liberians facing such embarrassment.” The Foreign Minister referenced the ordeal of a young Liberian lady named A. Boffah Kollie, who was denied entry at the airport of a country (name withheld) in which she had gone to begin graduate studies in Medicine.  This, said the Minister, is just one of many heart-rending stories that the Foreign Ministry receives daily.  Cote d’Ivoire was the first neighboring country to close its border to Liberia and halt movements of people, ships and flights. The Ministry then disclosed that in order to improve the safety of travel and enhance confidence internationally, the Government of Liberia, with capacity support from partners including the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has been implementing robust and strict exit and entry screening procedures at all our air, land and sea ports.CONTACT DETAILSDirect Contact to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Monrovia:CELL NO: +231 770 262 756 and + 231 886 002 728Email: foreignaffairslib1847@yahoo.comFacebook: Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of LiberiaLiberians may choose to also contact the following hotlines at the following Liberian missions abroad:United States of America:Hotlines:+1 646-287-9755 and +1240-396-7246United Kingdom (UK):Hotlines:+44-7459704031 and +44-7438516153Belgium:Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) The Statement particularly hailed the Government and people of Cote d’Ivoire for the resumption of flights by its national carrier, Air Cote d’Ivoire, to Liberia and other Ebola affected countries: “We hope that others will soon follow suit in line with commitments made over a month ago.” Foreign Minister Ngafuan noted that citizens and residents of Ebola affected countries have already been victimized by the deadly virus and that it is unfair and unconscionable for them to be doubly victimized by actions that are not necessarily aimed at attacking the disease, but rather attacking the fact that they hold a particular type of passport.  The Liberian Government, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has reiterated its concern over the manner in which Liberian citizens are being stigmatized due to the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak in the country. The Foreign Ministry stressed that the current Ebola outbreak is not only a problem for Liberia and other worst-hit countries: “It is also a test of human solidarity amidst human adversity”.      The Foreign Ministry further narrated that in order to forestall such difficulties, it advises officials of government and ordinary Liberian citizens, to the extent they feel comfortable to do so, to apprize the Ministry via email of their travel itineraries at least two days before their date of travel out of Liberia: “This will enable the Ministry to contact the Liberian mission(s) accredited to the country (ies) of travel to take proactive actions and be on the alert to assist whenever travel complications arise.” South Africa was the second to announce stopping its citizens from entering Liberia and Liberians from entering South Africa. The Ministry asserted that the Liberian Government does not contest the right of any Government to protect, first and foremost, the interest and well-being of its own citizens and residents; but strongly urges leaders of the world – heads of state and government, parliamentarians, ministers, etc., to take measures that achieve the double objective of protecting their own citizens and at the same time assisting countries battling with Ebola to quickly contain the disease. last_img read more

Fire guts city business, millions go up in flames

first_imgA late morning fire in the heart of the city resulted in millions of dollars going up in flames and congestion throughout town.Firefighters on the sceneThe fire began at approximately 11:10h at the property located on the corner of Avenue of the Republic and America Street, which formerly housed Fazia’s Collection and now operates as a family business divided into separate entities, such as Raj wholesale and retail, Trendz latest styles, USA styles, Razor Pro-barber shop, among others.The fire is believed to have started in the third floor of the insured building, which is used as a bond for the business entities on the ground floor.Upon noticing the fire, bus operators who ply their trade in the vicinity, rushed in to save what could be rescued from the building while the Guyana Fire Service was summoned and arrived shortly after, dispatching three fire trucks to the scene.Acting Chief Fire Officer Winston McGregor indicated that the fire service received a call at around 11:34h.McGregor added that the firefighters after using the water in the trucks resorted to the nearby canal. He noted that they dispatched three fire trucks to the scene: “When we arrived here we used the water from our tanks and then reverted to the open water source, (but) because of the silt in the canal we were unable to get water immediately but were subsequently able to contain the fire.”McGregor went on to say that the area is one of the busiest in the country and congestion was posing a problem as part of the roads were already blocked off due to Parliament, however, the Guyana Police Force was summoned. ‘A’ Division Commander Clifton Hicken related that they received a call sometime around 11:45 from the Fire Service, seeking assistance to cordon off the area so as to facilitate the movement of the fire trucks and avoid anyone getting injured. The ranks were quickly deployed to the scene. This newspaper understands that the property is a family owned establishment. One family member speaking to Guyana Times indicated that it was only on Wednesday that a large quantity of goods were delivered to the bond.The items included clothes and household items, all of which amounted to millions of dollars. The origin of the fire is still unknown as the Fire Service continues to investigate.last_img read more

2019: A year of economic disaster – Ali

first_img…GDP growth rate hides reality of rampant individual hardshipsThe year 2019 is over and in summing up how Guyana’s economy fared over the past year, People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Presidential Candidate Dr Irfaan Ali believes that from an economic perspective, it was a year that left thousands in financial hardship.PPP/C Presidential Candidate, Dr Irfaan AliHe made this pronouncement on Monday, during a joint press conference with the party’s General Secretary, Bharrat Jagdeo, at the office of the Leader of the Opposition on Church Street, Georgetown.Dr Ali pointed out that all the major pillars of the productive sectors showed a decline, including sugar, rice and gold mining. According to him, the root of the problem can be traced directly to the policies of the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC).“This year has been a disastrous year for us, from a purely economic perspective. And if you are to add what happened over the last four years, the existing situation must be addressed,” Ali told the media.According to Ali, Guyana has lost 30,000 jobs in the productive sector under the coalition Government. He cited figures to show that over the last four and a half years, earnings have declined by almost US$548 million from the key sectors like mining and agriculture. He blamed taxes, bad policies and neglect from the Government. One sector he delved into was rice.“I have made it very clear and our manifesto outlines strategies that will bring back life to these sectors and create an investment climate that will bring confidence to the Private Sector in these sectors. In terms of rice, you would recall the Government has made it very clear they don’t see themselves as having a role. They see this as private business.”“For us in the PPP, we believe rice forms an integral part of our economic life. It affects thousands of families and lives all across our country. For this reason, we will be pursuing measures and policies that give incentives and help rice farmers retool, reorganise and remove the Value Added Tax (VAT) on machinery and equipment.”ObstaclesAccording to Ali, this will remove various obstacles rice farmers are faced with in earning a living and expanding. In addition, he said that a PPP Government will pursue better-paying markets.He also spoke about sugar and the ways in which they can return the sector to profitability. According to Ali, the closure of the estates also impacted the provision of drainage and irrigation services to farmers.“GuySuCo being out of production [in some estates] has added to the problem. Instead of Government supporting the farmers when the estates were closed, we saw they had increases in the drainage fees. Increases at the water users’ association. And increases in land taxes. All of this means the input cost in the agriculture sector is just too high.”“Then we have the forestry sector, which has declined tremendously. If we look at the sector, it contracted by almost 53 per cent when compared to 2014. What we have in the forestry sector also is the direct loss of 6000 jobs. Private investment in the forestry sector in 2014 was well over $1 billion. Private investment now is just about $300 million. These issues must be addressed and they are policy-based and incentive-based.”Tunnel visionAli noted that Government has developed tunnel vision when it comes to oil and managing the overall economy. He made it clear that while oil can expedite development, the existing sectors that actually provide thousands of jobs while earning foreign revenue must be preserved and boosted.Notwithstanding the poor performance in the various productive sectors, Guyana did experience a 4.1 per cent growth in the economy last year. In addition, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has projected a 4.4 per cent growth for this year, with an even more steep growth curve projected by them after oil production starts.When asked about this however, Ali noted that this growth does not tell the full economic picture. He explained that when the Government announces its growth figures, it does not necessarily mean life has improved for the ordinary Guyanese. This point was supported by Jagdeo, an economist by training.“This Government has a fetish for claiming, look we have economic growth and look how much taxes we collected. As if this is progress. When they boast about tax collection, it came from people’s pockets. It represents a transfer of resources. Government expenditure is also used, so if that expands it adds to the growth figure,” Jagdeo said.“We also had some spending in the oil and gas sector. That helped bolster the figure. Next year we might very well see 85 per cent growth in the GDP. But what does that mean for the ordinary Guyanese? Does that mean your salary will increase?”last_img read more
