Local wheelsmen sign petition to remove GCF president, other officials

first_img… President admits to conflicts LOCAL cyclists, disgruntled with the way the Guyana Cycling Federation (GCF) has been operating over the past 16 months since the new executive assumed office, have finally said `enough is enough’ and to this end, 40 licensed riders have affixed their signatures to a petition seeking the resignation of the Federation’s principal officers.One day after another section of the media broke the news of the petition, GCF president Horace Burrowes was contacted and admitted that the Federation had been plagued with internal conflicts at the executive level and that was responsible for the downward spiral of the sport. However, he stated that he was committed to addressing the concerns of the cyclists.The cyclists, who have signed the petition and who have all been doing Guyana proud at the regional and international levels, want to see the backs of the president (Horrace Burrowes), secretary (Maria Leung), vice-president (Jerome Allicock) and treasurer (Rosanna Sukhoo).According to the cyclists, among the reasons for their drastic call is the fact that the officials have shown scant respect for the oath they took to serve and take the sport to another level.Among the stated infractions are: Failure to hold meetings and/or attend which shows disrespect for their commitment to cyclists; the failure of the president and most of his executives to attend the 2016 national championship; the failure of the president to publish the results of the WADA drug test of November 2015; the incompetence of the president in publishing inaccurate information on social media, resulting in the GCF being embarrassed; the president being non-resident, communication is difficult.However, Burrowes who is resident in the USA, in responding to the cyclists’ petition told another section of the media that he would be in Guyana in another few weeks and he would be meeting with his executives and clubs to address their concerns.He said over the past months he had been meeting with other cycling federations with a view of getting technical and other assistance for local cyclists and he was currently in talks with the Mexico cycling body, seeking assistance for the development of Guyanese track cyclists.He said he also plans to pursue more alliances with the Pan American Cycling Confederation (COPACI) when he attends the COPACI Annual General Meeting fixed for Cuba next January.last_img

Thurston County Breaks Ground on 2018 Fish Passage Barrier Removal Projects

first_imgFacebook20Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Board of CommissionersThurston County has pioneered a fish passage barrier removal program that has become a model across Washington. On Monday, July 16, 2018 the County broke ground on one of five fish passage barrier removal projects scheduled for completion at the end of this year.John Hutchings, Thurston County Commissioner District One, summed up the significance of the project, saying “This is for everyone, because everyone is impacted by this major effort of conservation.”Over the next several months, Thurston County Public Works will replace a culvert, located on Hunter Point Road near Steamboat Island, with a pre-fabricated bridge that will open the waterway and allow for the passage of salmon and other fish species.“It is absolutely marvolus to be here today and give back to mother nature,” said Bud Blake, Chair for the Board of County Commissioners. “Thurston County is the first county to proactively address fish passage barriers.”Thurston County has been working to develop a program to restore fish passage habitat since 2016, allocating $4 million from the Real Estate Excise Tax to begin the process. In March 2018 the Board approved work to begin on five fish passage barrier removal projects.Hunter Point is one of those five fish passage barrier removal projects slated for completion in 2018. Other approved projects include: installation of pre-fabricated bridges at Troy Drive SE and Flumerfelt Road SE; upgraded stream crossings with fish passable structures at 26th Avenue NE; and Waddell Creek Road SW at Pants Creek.Gary Edwards, Thurston County Commissioner District 2, spoke briefly about why the investment in fish passage barrier removal is so important. He invited a young woman who was at the groundbreaking ceremony with her baby to join the Commissioners.“This is who we’re doing this for; that is what our future is all about,” he said. “This youngster might only be representative of about 30% of our population, but is 100% of our future.”Also in atttendance at the groundbreaking were tribal leaders from the Squaxin Island Tribe. The County worked closely with the Tribe and other neighboring tribes in selecting the fish passage barrier projects to pursue in 2018.County Engineer Scott Lindblom mentioned the County met with resource agencies and members of the Squaxin, Chehalis, and Nisqually Tribes to gather their input on the proposed projects. Lindblom said, “Their feedback has been extremely valuable to us in selecting which projects to pursue in 2018.”Squaxin Island Tribal Council Chairman Arnold Cooper spoke about the Tribe’s partnership with the County and said, “Working together is the only way we can get stuff like this done. It’s a joint effort. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, these projects benefit everyone… because the importance of salmon is critical for everyone. We’re helping generations down the road.”Squaxin Island Tribal Council Vice-Chair Charlene Krise gave a blessing over the project before the groundbreaking.“We pray a blessing for all the workers who will work on this project, and we pray a blessing for all the salmon that will be running through these creeks in the future.”In addition to its partnerships with the tribes, Thurston County Public Works used a comprehensive prioritization process to help identify the fish passage barriers that would maximize return on investment for fish habitat.“There are many fish passage projects we would like to accomplish, but we have to be strategic in our approach with the funds allocated each year,” said Lindblom.Thurston County maintains nearly 3,000 culverts to prevent roadway and inland flooding. There are an estimated 336 fish barrier culverts based on existing culvert data and information from the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife.You can find a short video of the ground breaking ceremony at https://youtu.be/3KCdFGd8GyA.last_img read more
