Ownership & management of the sugar industry

first_imgDear Editor,In a recent letter to the media, I strongly advocated the return of the sugar industry to private ownership or management, which is independent of the Government; because its current status as a nationalised industry has been largely responsible for its sad decline from profitability under private ownership to now limping along on virtual ‘life-support’ because of ineffective management, low production, poor productivity, and continuing losses.Because no industry can, or should, continue under such circumstances, I repeated what was also recommended by the Commission of Inquiry into the Sugar Industry, and in this context remind readers that the industry was indeed performing much better when it was under private ownership or private management contract— an objective fact, not an opinion.I was therefore most surprised to see in sections of the media a rather personal letter by a Patricia Persaud implying that my recommendations were not based on objective facts, but on my antecedents in the sugar industry; which she suggests were far removed from the struggles of the sugar workers. She apparently has a bias, and certainly does not know me. I would therefore recommend that she carefully reads my autobiographic account of the sugar industry, titled “A Product of Guyana’s Bitter-Sweet Sugar”, which is currently under publication. Pro-tem I say not!Sincerely,Nowrang Persaudlast_img read more

Everett looks to prove himself, but he’s not worried

first_imgWhile Everett was shut out, senior Brandon Breazell made six catches, and senior Joe Cowan had a pair of touchdowns. Gavin Ketchum and Dominique Johnson also had touchdown catches, which is why Everett isn’t stressing. “We have so many weapons, a lot of people can have breakout games,” Everett said. “You have to be patient and you have to stay positive.” Injury update Cornerback Rodney Van (ankle) returned after missing two days of practice and will play, UCLA coach Karl Dorrell said. However, sophomore Alterraun Verner could get the start since Van missed so much practice. Also, defensive tackle Jerzy Siewierski (plantar fasciitis) and running back Chane Moline (hand) will be available, although Moline is behind Christian Ramirez on the depth chart. “Christian is third, and Chane, we will keep bringing along,” Dorrell said. “(Moline) missed so much practice time. Even though he looked good practicing, he has to get into the rhythm again.” Tough judge UCLA topped 300 rushing yards, totaled 624 yards of offense, Olson was hit only twice, and Stanford’s lone sack came in the fourth quarter, and it was a product of Olson not checking to the proper protection. So, what did first-year offensive line coach Bob Connelly think of his unit? “There’s still a lot of room for improvement,” Connelly said. “We didn’t grade out to winning football as an offensive line, for my standards.” Connelly added he was pleased with the offensive line’s assignments and the effort, but more is needed. “We can get better on our fundamentals and techniques,” Connelly said. Upset inspires rankings change After pulling off one of the greatest upsets in college football history, Appalachian State is still shaking things up. The Associated Press said lower-division schools – that means you, Mountaineers – are now eligible for its 71-year-old poll. “It’s great they opened the door,” Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore said. “Certainly we’re not going to be the No. 1 team in the country. We know that. We’re not even going to be in the top 10. But if you have a win over a nice football team, I like that it’s not out of the realm of possibility for a school like us to be one of the top 20 or 25 teams in the country.” Around the nation Mississippi: Jerrell Powe was denied in his quest to play at Mississippi for the third time when the NCAA rejected the final appeals of the defensive lineman and the school. The learning-disabled prized recruit has spent more than two years seeking permission from the NCAA to start his college career. Officials have ruled Powe, 20, will not be able to play football until 2008. Washington: Boeing Co. has signed a four-year deal to sponsor the Apple Cup, the annual game between cross-state rivals Washington and Washington State. South Carolina: Blake Mitchell will return to his starting quarterback spot against No. 11 Georgia, Coach Steve Spurrier said after practice. Mitchell, in his fifth season with the Gamecocks (1-0), missed South Carolina’s opener because of an academic suspension West Virginia: Coach Rich Rodriguez has signed a contract extension that makes hefty retirement contributions and commitments for millions of dollars in facility improvements. The signing extends his contract one year through 2013. The Associated Press contributed to this story.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “This week I’m going to try and bounce back and show everybody what I have,” Everett said. “Show the nation that I’m one of the best receivers in the nation.” Everett caught 31 passes last season for 450 yards and five touchdowns. He had a few passes thrown his way at Stanford, but couldn’t get control of any of them. The most obvious was on UCLA’s third play from scrimmage, an 11-yard pass into the end zone that was tipped by a defender, and bounced off Everett’s hands. The pass was slightly behind Everett, but he said he should have caught it. “It was frustrating for me, but I had one of those games,” Everett said. “A couple balls got tipped, and a couple balls were off target, but I have to make the play. That’s the thing, if you throw it up there, I’m going to try and come down with it. “Even if it gets tipped, or if a guy is on me, it doesn’t matter. If it’s in my area, I expect myself to come down with it.” By Brian Dohn STAFF WRITER Lost in the balance of UCLA’s offense, of rushing for 338 yards and quarterback Ben Olson completing passes to nine receivers at Stanford, was the lack of production for its top returning receiver. Senior Marcus Everett, who led the team in touchdowns and receiving yards in 2006, heads into Saturday’s home opener against BYU looking for his first catch of the season. last_img read more
