first_imgFormer Home Affairs Minister Ronald Gajraj, who once had been Guyana’s High Commissioner to India and Bangladesh, died on Saturday morning at a private city hospital following a brief illness.

Nova Star Hotel Fee Waiver Decision Postponed

first_imgThe City has postponed a decision on whether or not to waive permit fees for the Nova Star Hotel. Daniel Bae was before council on Monday night, requesting that the City waive its building and plumbing permit fees for the Nova Star Hotel.Bae says he has already paid these fees once before, to the tune of over $20,000. When the Nova Star burned down last year, Bae was covered for many of his costs by his construction insurance – but not for the permit fees.He says he wants to rebuild in FSJ, with the same building plan as before. He doesn’t feel it’s fair that he should have to pay the fees again (in fact, they would be slightly higher this time) just because he was a victim of arson.- Advertisement -Councillor Lori Ackerman, like most of the Councillors, says she feels for Bae, though she can’t understand why his construction insurance won’t cover the bill. [asset|aid=166|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=Ackerman-NovaHotel_1_Pub.mp3] Bae’s original permit expired after two years. Council postponed a decision on Bae’s request until more information can be obtained about his insurance claim.last_img read more

DONEGAL FANS BEING ASKED TO DIG DEEP FOR LITTLE SAM

first_imgLittle Sam BradleyDonegal fans attending this Sunday’s Ulster semi final in Cavan are being asked to ‘dig deep for Sam‘.Fans entering Breffni Park will notice a bucket collection being taken up. Proceeds are in aid of a young Fermanagh toddler who is battling a rare form of cancer.The collection is part of the ‘Together For Sam’ charity which has been set up for 23 month old Sam Bradley from Enniskillen. Earlier this year Sam was diagnosed with high risk Neuroblastoma. This is a cancer that presents in less than 15 people per year across Ireland. Sam has a particularly aggressive form of the cancer and as such is in the high risk category.Sam is currently in stage two of a six phrase year long treatment plan of chemotherapy and is being treated at the Royal Victoria Hospital for Sick Children.Sam has been remarkable throughout his treatment and his resilience and cheerful positive attitude is an inspiration to all close to this brave little boy.There is a possibility that some of Sam’s treatment may have to take place outside Ireland, and to this end Sam’s family and friends are trying to raise the necessary funds for Sam’s ongong care and any treatment that may have to take place abroad. All remaining proceeds will be split between the Children’s Haematology unit at the Royal and Irish cancer charities.Sam’s dad Colm, a former Fermanagh player urged fans to donate to Together for Sam this Sunday.Colm said, “We have been amazed by the generosity that has been shown to us since Sam was diagnosed. The GAA community has rallied around us and helped us cope during this difficult time. We are determined to do everything we can to help Sam win his battle and we thank everyone for the kindness shown to our family.”So remember when you see the collectors with their buckets outside the big game on Sunday, spare a thought and a donation by digging deep for Sam. DONEGAL FANS BEING ASKED TO DIG DEEP FOR LITTLE SAM was last modified: June 20th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cancerCavandonegalDownSam Bradleylast_img read more
