first_imgMOST READ It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson “Danny Ildefonso is both one of the best players and best men to ever have played in the PBA. He has always had a tremendous work ethic and has detailed knowledge on how to play the game as a big man. He will surely have a tremendous impact on the development of our big men,” said Compton.Rounding out the new hires for Alaska is Tony dela Cruz, who has now shifted to the coaching after retiring last month.“Tony Dela Cruz has always been one of the smartest players in the PBA and he knows the ins and outs of our system as well as any of our coaches.

Occupational Health and Safety Officer needed for City Hall – Mayor

first_imgIn light of the recent fire at the Drop In Centre, Georgetown Mayor Patricia Chase Green requested that an Occupational Health and Safety Officer be appointed at the City Hall.According to Chase Green, since the resignation of the Council’s Occupational Health and Safety Officer some time back, no one has occupied the position, but she hoped to have this rectified soon.“Since the resignation of our Occupational Health and Safety Officer, we have not had one functioning and I’m hoping that, and I’ve always been advocating as a qualified Occupational Safety and Health Officer, that we should always have one in place, that we should make sure that one is advertised for at the earliest opportunity,” she said.The Mayor highlighted her uncertainty over the Mayor and City Council’s preparedness in the event of a fire. She asserted that the Fire Service has been invited to conduct an evacuation drill with the members of the Council in the event of an emergency, noting that this had not been done since last year.“I’m not aware that if there is an alarm that goes off in this Council now, if Councillors are aware where is the safest place for them to assemble. And so, I would hope that you can invite the Fire Service to do an evacuation drill in the case of an emergency with the present Council and officers because that would have been long overdue. Since last year we have not had one,” Chase Green voiced.She also requested that discussion be had with the Fire Service to implement fire prevention measures.last_img read more

Fort St. John Walmart expanding into Supercentre

first_imgAdding an approximate 30,000 square feet to the building, it will balloon to 116,000 square feet once the renovations are done around mid-2014. Spokesperson Felicia Fefer explains that in addition to keeping the departments the store currently has, “fresh” departments will be added, like produce, more dairy, and a deli section. “It’s true one-stop shopping,” she argues. “Supercentres are a favourite format in Canada. I think it just makes sense. It’s really what our customers are looking for.” Walmart, which opened in Fort St. John in 2002, will remain opening during construction.- Advertisement -“We try to be minimally disruptive,” says Fefer. “We’ll move departments, but we never close down. It’s important to be able to provide access to shopping for our customers who trust us to have the items that they want.” Walmart expects both the construction and completed expansion to create jobs in the community.Advertisementlast_img read more
