Andrew Blacks, a conductor on a Route 32 minibus (Georgetown-Parika), is now battling for his life after reportedly being stabbed multiple times by a minibus driver during a quarrel over a passenger on Wednesday in the vicinity of Stabroek Square, Georgetown.Based on reports received, Blacks was attempting to escort a passenger into the minibus on which he works when a bus driver attempted to pull the passenger away from him. He objected to this action, and the driver, enraged, whipped out a weapon and inflicted several stabs about his body.Reportedly bleeding profusely, Blacks collapsed on the roadway, but was immediately picked up by persons on the scene and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC), where he was admitted and remains a patient in stable but serious condition.The suspect has since been arrested, and is assisting the Police in their investigation of the incident. He is expected to be charged and arraigned in court today.

Anne-Marie admits she is spoiling her son Paul a little before his operation today – and why not?The young Donegal boy who is battling to walk for the very first time is to have his make-or-break operation tonight.Paul Doherty, 5, will go under the surgeon’s knife at 3pm local time in Missouri, America and 9pm Irish time.The brave Killygordon lad was born with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy which left him in a wheelchair. The operation is called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) and involves cutting some of the nerves in Paul’s spinal cord that are misfiring the muscles in his leg.But Paul’s mum had heard of a pioneering surgery, Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR), which involves cutting some of the nerves in Paul’s spinal cord that are misfiring the muscles in his leg.Now Anne-Marie Doherty has asked people to pray for her little boy in the hope that the operation is a success and that he will have a chance to walk one day.The Doherty family, who were supported by the people of Donegal in raising 60,000 euro, yesterday met with Dr Park, the man who will perform Paul’s surgery. Anne-Marie told Donegal Daily “We were at the children’s hospital today and met with Dr. Park and his team. We got on great and the surgery is scheduled for 3pm local time (9pm at home).“They are going to perform a slightly bigger procedure than they anticipated but this will help Paul to walk better later.“Also, Paul might need a second operation in 10 days on his heel cords and hamstrings. It’s not the best situation now but it will be for the best in the future,” she revealed.At the start of her campaign last year, Anne-Marie told Donegal Daily how she would love nothing more than to see her son walk into school.

“Aerospace manufacturing hasn’t seen this level of growth in more than a decade,” Anderson wrote in his analysis. And international air carriers are scrapping old jet fuel guzzling plans and buying new ones, which translates to growth for the local economy. The service sector, the region’s biggest employer, is collectively the least optimistic. And Anderson said it’s showing some signs of fatigue. These firms have added to their payrolls in recent years, and while less optimistic about the future, still have a positive hiring outlook. The survey also found that: 80 percent of Southern California businesses reported improved or similar current business conditions, while 87 percent saw improved or similar future demand. 90 percent saw future hiring as improved or the same. About one in three businesses reported rising prices. Jack Kyser, chief economist at the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp., said Wells Fargo’s findings jibes with what he hears on the street. “There is an air of optimism. Any bank you talk to is quite happy because this is a wonderful market in terms of small to medium-sized businesses that use a lot of services,” Kyser said. Gregory J.

There is little danger that Southern California’s economic expansion will derail next year as executives across the region believe their current business conditions are robust and will improve, according to a Wells Fargo survey released Thursday. The San Francisco-based bank’s survey sent to 400 businesses in Los Angeles and Orange counties with annual revenues of between $5 million and $500 million found that businesses are generally optimistic about their short-term outlook. It focused on the manufacturing, service and construction sectors. “Together, Los Angeles and Orange County have a tremendous impact on our national economy,” said Scott Anderson, a Wells Fargo senior economist who tracks Southern California. Los Angeles business were more upbeat than their Orange County counterparts, said Anderson. And construction companies were the most optimistic of all. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Anderson attributed that in part to the robust housing market, which can still absorb some new construction. “This said to us that the housing demand remains firmly in place,” Anderson said during a conference call. “I think the big run-up we’ve had in home prices and activity in Orange County is tempering. L.A. had been slower to pick up the pace.” However, Anderson noted that if left unchecked, the rampant high cost of living, including housing prices, will elevate labor costs and could dampen growth. Manufacturing companies were “surprisingly exuberant” about their prospects. Strengthening foreign demand and low U.S. inventories are leading to improved production activity.
