Good city news shared at Rotary

first_img By Blood Sugar Blaster Next Up“Rather than put that money in the bank and use it for general fund purposes, the city’s decision was to re-invest those dollars in the community by purchasing 222 acres adjacent to the North Industrial Park and along the railroad for industrial development,” Thomas said.The 222 acres were purchased at a cost of $1.2 million. That decision to re-invest those tax dollars in industrial development could prove to be paramount to the decision decades ago for the city to own and operate its own electrical distribution system, Thomas said.Chuck Caraway, owner and president of Southern Classic Food Group, has purchased 32 acres of the 222 acres designated for industrial development.

Ramage III winning the election… read more The city’s sidewalk project, which is designed to install sidewalk along S.A. Graham Blvd. and Galloway Road, was a topic of interest to the Rotarians.Thomas said project requires the acquisition of property and that has been a slow process.“The sidewalks will be on the public right-of-way but the acquisition of property is necessary to be able to begin work.Rotarian Cot Wallace expressed appreciation to all of those who have, over the years, made good sound decisions that made it possible for Brundidge to be on solid ground. He said good strong leadership in needed for the town to continue to prosper. MESSENGER PHOTO/JAINE TREADWELLBrundidge City Manager Britt Thomas, left, was the program guest of Rotarian Homer Homann at the Wednesday meeting of the Brundidge Rotary Club. Thomas brought the Rotarians good news about the city.“Manna from heaven” was the way Brundidge City Manager Britt Thomas described the $56,000 settlement the City of Brundidge received for economic damages done by BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010.Thomas told the Brundidge Rotarians Wednesday that the city had enlisted the services of Beasley Allen Law Firm in Montgomery to file a claim in the suit against British Petroleum claiming lost revenue in the form of lost sales tax revenue from decreased beach traffic as a result of the oil spill. Thomas said, with attorneys’ fees, the city will net about $42,000.And in other good news, Thomas told the Rotarians that the tax abatement offered to the Wal-Mart Distribution Center has expired and the city will now receive about $90,000 in tax dollars a year from the Wal-Mart DC.

Thomas said the city was one of the first to replace its high-pressure sodium light bulbs with LED lights. The LED lights are more expensive but are longer lasting and require almost no maintenance.“The savings to the city has been significant,” Thomas said.

District 10 reign supreme with fifth consecutive ‘Nationals’ title

first_img… North Georgetown finish secondBy Faizool DeoTHE reign of District 10 continues. For the fifth consecutive year, the Upper Demerara/Kwakwani side have been able to win the overall title, which makes them the third team in the history of the National Schools’ Cycling, Swimming and Track and Field Championships to do so.Georgetown won it from 1975 to 1979, while from 1980 to 1984 when the sides were further divided, North Georgetown ruled.When the curtain came down on the 59th edition of the Games at the National Track and Field Centre in Leonora last evening, the defending champions had won their 18th overall title – a feat unmatched by any other district.District Three, West Demerara, won the Teachers’ T&F competition.District 10, who had finished second on Monday in the swimming and cycling competitions, were able to dominate the track and field events, to win the students’ battle by a whopping 296 points. Although they finished fourth in the teachers’ competition, they were still able to accumulate 68 overall points.District 11, North Georgetown, again had to settle for second. The side who ruled in the water, at the Swimming Championships, ended fifth in the cycling, students’ track and field and the teachers’ T&F competitions for a grand total of 59 points.District Three, West Demerara, who finished fourth last year, were able to jump into the third position this year with a win in the teachers’ T&F competition. West Demerara also ended seventh in the cycling, ninth in the swimming and sixth in the student’s T&F battle for 52 overall points.District 10 athletes celebrate after winning their 18th overall championship trophy.District 13, South Georgetown, who were tied for second last year, settled for fourth with 51 overall points. They finished second in the teachers’ battle, fourth in swimming, sixth in cycling and 10th in the students’ track and field battle.Fifth place went to District 12, East Georgetown, who placed third in the swimming, fourth in students’ track and field, ninth in cycling and 11th in the teachers’ battle for a 45-point total.East Coast Demerara and Corentyne were tied for sixth (44 points each), the former proving outstanding in the students’ T&F battle.In that competition, they accumulated 490 points to finish in second place. East Coast also placed sixth in the teachers’ battle, but ninth in swimming and 12th in cycling.Corentyne, on the other hand, dominated the cycling, but were unable to field a team for the swimming. They, however, made up valuable points by gaining third position in the students’ track and field clash and ninth in the teachers’ competition.Eighth position was won by New Amsterdam (District 15) with 41 overall points; ninth by Bartica (District Seven) with 38 points, 10th by West Coast Berbice (District 5) on 36 points, 11th by Districts 1 and 2 (North West and Essequibo Coast-Pomeroon), who finished jointly on 32 points. East Bank Demerara, District 14, finished 13th with 31 points, while Potaro-Siparuni (District 8) ended on 14 with 19 points and Rupununi in 15th on 15 points.Overall, the track and field meet proved to be extremely competitive with a whopping 34 students’ records and 10 teachers’ records broken.One of the highlights on the final day involved Rupununi, who managed to register their second record in the high jump after failing to do so prior to this meet.Derek Mentis broke the 15-and-under high jump record with a leap of 1.84m. The youngster joined Delmar Benjamin, who broke the Boys’ 10-and-under high jump record on Tuesday.In the penultimate event of the day, the Boys’ triple jump, two athletes were able to better the 17-and-under triple jump record. Cleon Wray (South Georgetown) jumped 13.51m, which had passed Tremaine Browne’s record of 13.45m, but District 6 Shemroy Charles (Corentyne) was able to better his mark with a leap 13.75m.It came down to the final attempt and Charles, who went first had a mix-up in his run-up and ended up failing in his attempt, Wray made no mistakes, he was able to sail to 13.84m for the win and a new mark.last_img read more

Harbour View looking to seal fourth spot

first_img Today’s games: “I am pleasantly surprised at their frame of mind based on the fact that we lost three points in the boardroom. They are in a positive frame of mind and declared that they will go out and do what they have to do. Based on that mood, we are pretty optimistic that we will come away with a positive result,” Reynolds added. Humble Lion’s chances will be boosted by the return to fitness of the talismanic Wolry Wolfe, along with Ricardo Cousins, Andrew Vanzie and Kemeel Wolfe. Levaughn Williams has been scoring for them, especially since the enforced absence of Francois Swaby, and he will again be expected to shoulder the goalscoring burden with Swaby still out. Reno are just four points above the relegation zone and with five matches to go, that does not spell safety and they cannot afford to finish pointless against Portmore United. The veteran Bradley Stewart has lit a fire in the hearts of the Rivoli United players and they must be confident that they can get the better of Waterhouse even though they are playing away from home. Tivoli Gardens are a rejuvenated bunch under Glendon “Admiral” Bailey and are expected to make things difficult for UWI FC, and even with the free scoring Girvon Brown, they could find the going rough. Positive frame Former champions Harbour View will head into today’s game with the coveted possession of the fourth spot, which guarantees a place in the semi-final round of the Red Stripe Premier League if they can hold on to that at the end of the five remaining sets of games. The Stars of the East owe their position to the opportunism of Nicholas Beckett, whose late double saw off a determined Waterhouse last week. Today, they host the unfortunate Humble Lion, who held the fourth place until a boardroom decision saw them lose it and set the cat among the pigeons. In contention for that place are Humble Lion and the promoted UWI FC, who play away to the tough and hungry Tivoli Gardens. Pole position is what Harbour View currently enjoy and, according to coach Ludlow Bernard, they will do all to hang on to it. “I consider this game just as important as the others that follow, and we will treat all of them as if they are going to be our last game. The approach will be a very aggressive one,” a confident Bernard told The Sunday Gleaner. With the exception of Brian Brown, Harbour View have found reliable goalscorers hard to identify, but Bernard appears unconcerned about that. “Goalscoring has been an issue, yes, and we are hoping that others will share that burden. Beckett came up big in the last game and he will be playing in a more advanced role. “We will be creating chances for sure, but you have to consider that we will be playing against a team that is very mean and do not give up a lot of opportunities. That will make our chances more difficult, but we are confident that we have the personnel that will be incisive enough to create and convert chances,” Bernard said. For Humble Lion’s Vassell Reynolds, this game is a massive one for his team, but he is confident that his players are up for the challenge. “This is big, big, big, owing to the fact that we are three points off a semi-final spot. At this stage of the competition, three points are as precious as gold,” Reynolds said. • 3:30 p.m: Reno vs Portmore United – Frome Complex – 6:30 p.m: Harbour View vs Humble Lion – Harbour View Stadium – 3:30 p.m: Tivoli Gardens vs UWI FC – Edward Seaga Complex – 6 p.m: Waterhouse vs Rivoli United – Drewsland Stadium Tomorrow’s game: – 8:40 p.m: Arnett Gardens vs Boys Town – Anthony Spaulding Complexlast_img read more

Tooro off to winning start at Wankulukuku

first_imgTooro now move into 6th on the log (file photo)StarTimes Uganda Premier League Tooro United FC 1-0 Bul FCBetway Mutessa II Stadium, Wankulukuku Tuesday, 26-03-2019WANKULUKUKU – Buhinga was a fortress the entire time Tooro United hosted games there as the Wasswa Bbosa coached side went 13 games in all competitions unbeaten.With only a few games left in the season, Tooro were forced to shift to Wankulukuku to host their remaining StarTimes Uganda Premier League games.With all eyes on them and the public thinking they may not be able to carry on from where they had left at Buhinga, they proved the majority wrong by winning their first game at Wankulukuku.It may not have been the most convincing scoreline but the 1-0 win over Bul FC on Tuesday proves that may be Buhinga was just another home ground for Tooro and put them anywhere else, they will still be a hard nut to crack at home.Allan Kayiwa scored the only goal of the game in the 8th minute, one that sealed Tooro’s 9th victory of the season.The diminutive winger punished BUL FC both at home and away. It should be noted he scored in the first leg at FUFA Technical Centre a game that also ended 1-0 in favour of Tooro United.Kayiwa also scored in the same fixture last season when Tooro United (then called Soana FC) won 3-1 at Kavumba Recreation Centre, then their home ground.He has therefore scored in the last three meetings against Bul FC and his goal on Tuesday takes his season’s tally to an impressive seven (7).BUL FC ended the game with a man less after combative midfielder Patrick Ssembuya was sent off by referee Ali Sabila for accumulating two yellow cards with the second coming in stoppage time.Victory means Tooro United move in to 6th position on the standings, having accumulated 36 points, the same tally as BUL who remain 5th.The other game played on Tuesday:-URA FC 1-0 Express FCWednesday’s fixtures:-Vipers SC vs Maroons FC @4pm-Kirinya JSS FC vs KCCA FC @4:30pm-Onduparaka FC vs SC Villa @4:30pmComments Tags: Allan KayiwaBul FCStarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueTooro unitedlast_img read more

How To Beat Your Larger Competitors

first_imgWhat are you doing to future relationships in your dream client accounts so that you can make yourself known and obtain an opportunity to compete?How do you stay engaged with your dream clients during the periods where they are working with your competitors so that you have successfully made your case when they are dissatisfied enough to move to a smaller company? Get the Free eBook! Want to master cold calling? Download my free eBook! Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now I grew up in a business that was much smaller than the major competitors with whom we battled for business. I learned to sell by competing with competitors with revenue thousands of times greater than my company for the largest prospects in my territory. Rarely did I have to compete against a company of equal or smaller revenue.Here is a pattern I picked up that’s worth sharing.The Safer ChoiceThey used to say “Nobody got fired for hiring IBM.” Maybe they still say this.It is easy for companies to choose a large, well-established company as their partner. You don’t get to be a large corporation without building the processes and systems that allow you to do good work. A large company appears to be safer because many others have chosen them as a partner, they have great resources, and they seem to be less of a risk when it comes to execution.The first time through a real buying process a lot of big businesses choose other large companies as their partners. And so do a lot of smaller companies.It’s Not Us, It’s ThemWhen the larger company doesn’t produce the expected results, it’s very easy for the customer to believe that the larger company is to blame. In many cases this is true. Those same processes and systems that allow a large business to scale also make it tough for them to customize their approach to individual clients or customers. This is where bigger companies begin to have some challenges.By not being able to customize their solution or give attention to some of their many customers, larger companies end up creating enough dissatisfaction that they open themselves up to the threat of being competitively displaced. That sounds like an excellent opportunity, but much of the time, the buying company isn’t quite ready to let go of the safer choice. So they choose another larger company as their partner, believing that switching partners will change the result.Ready for Real ChangeAfter a couple of rounds with larger companies as partners, many companies are ready for real change. They find out that the solution they want is going to require a partner who is willing and able to customize a solution specifically tailored to them and their business. This is when the playing field is leveled and smaller competitors who have done their homework have a chance to win.You have to start nurturing your dream clients now to ensure you get an opportunity to compete. This is how you punch above your weight class.The Long GameThe first time you compete, win or lose, you get to meet the people who make decisions. You also get a chance to start building your case.The second time you compete, you get an opportunity to deepen the relationship and show your dream client how your ability to tailor your solution will give them what they want.The third time you compete, if you’ve nurtured relationships, you massively increase your odds of winning because you are known and because your dream client is continually disappointed with the results larger companies fail to provide.last_img read more
