Magistrate laments high level of theft among youth

first_img Tweet A Dominican magistrate has lamented the high level of youth among the island’s youth.“There’s a lot, a lot of theft and I’d like to ask parents to please be vigilant, Magistrate Gloria Augustus indicated.“If your children come home with things that don’t belong to them, or you see them have certain items, find out where it came from.Be a good citizen, take it to the police because there is just too, too much theft,” she stated.According to Magistrate Augustus, there is a high level of theft among neighbors and friends.“There is really too, too much theft and particularly also when they go to the supermarkets and business places. “They must realize that these people are conducting business and going there and stealing from them is really not going to help in terms of business development in our country,” Ms Augusts said. She has also advised parents to counsel their children on the value of working to earn things.“Speak to them in terms of learning to earn certain things and not wanting everything that they see because some people just feel that I see it, I want it, I take it.“Please talk to them about what that can do, in terms of where theft can get them, the police record it gives them if they continue what can happen, if they are caught.There are lots of dangers to theft, she warned and if parents take time to reward their children with gifts for their work that will also help.She also called on the government and communities to provide more support for families as well as programs which cater to the youth.“We can support each other; we can volunteer, we can give some advice, all these will help in terms of our development of our young people”.Magistrate Augustus also indicated that young people should take an interest in themselves, in their development.“Sometimes you are prepared to help some young people but they are not in a place where they are prepared to maybe understand for themselves.“We may not be able to see that with everybody but there’s much more that we as a community and the government also can do in terms of our young people in Dominica,” she noted.Dominica Vibes News Share LocalNews Magistrate laments high level of theft among youth by: – December 27, 2012 Sharecenter_img 13 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

First up was the…January 26, 2018In “News” By DINA ARÉVALOPort Isabel-South Padre Presseditor@portisabelsouthpadre.comThe Laguna Madre Water District (LMWD) Board of Directors deliberated changing the rates for water and waste water service, as well as entering into a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TRZ) interlocal agreement with the City of South Padre Island during Tuesday night’s meeting.The Board ultimately tabled both agenda items after lengthy discussions led them to ask for more information.During the discussion of rates for water and sewer service, the Board was shown several options for a tiered system for assessing charges. The system divides customers into different brackets based on the number of gallons used per month and the size of meter used. The proposed rates would comprise an approximate 3 percent increase for water service and a 9 percent increase for waste water service.“As you can see there, I brought up again Option No. 5, an increase on all meters. On the water side, it will be around a 3 percent increase, … and on the waste water side, it’s a 9 percent increase,” District General Manager Carlos Galvan said.Questions arose, however, when Director Whitey Thomas noted that a on different option, Option No. 6,  the tier that would affect many households — those with a five-eighths inch meter — did not seem to take into account the lowest average amount of water use. At the bottom of the fee structure, the proposal would establish an increase from the base fee rate once a customer used between 2,001 and 10,000 gallons of water per month.“A person, a homeowner, cannot bathe their clothes, wash their kids and cook their meals for 2,000 gallons. I’d say leave that at 4,000 gallons,” Thomas said. “Under the 1-inch meter, they’ve cut them down to 3,000 from 6,000. I would bring that up to 4,000 gallons so it’s in line with the five-eighths meter. And I would pass (Option) No. 6 in its entirety.”Want the whole story?

He also said he wants the Senate to appoint members to a committee to work out differences between the two chambers over changes to oil and gas taxes and tax credits. Sen. Micciche(R-K. Pen): “We got here because of a lot of hard work to get down to a responsible budget. We feel there’s still some room to cut. Not a lot, but some. We’re going to hold out to keep from increasing this budget. Like the last three years, when things have been tough, it takes more time for the two sides to agree. I certainly hope our constituents can support us in the fact that we’re protecting them from higher taxes and a much more expensive form of government.” There has been no sign of progress in resolving the state’s budget crisis.
