AN AUGUST EVENT: On this auspicious day, I greet Herman Carneiro and wish
him Many Happy Returns of the Day and congratulate him for having pioneered
Goa's premier mailing list - Goanet - which celebrates its tenth anniversary
today. On this very happy occasion, let me also wish and thank all
Goanetters, particularly, Fred Noronha, who introduced me to the mailing
list, and to Marlon Menezes, Tim de Mello, John D'Souza and Eddie Fernandes
for providing me with the facilities to continue being a member (silent
though) of Goanet, and several others who have encouraged me with their good
wishes, comments and even funds. My thanks also go out to Goa's daily
newspapers from where I draw the content for the Goacom Daily New Clippings.

Goa will be held on October 13 along with the Assembly elections in
Maharashtra as per the schedule announced by the Chief Election Commissioner
TS Krishna Murthi in Panjim on August 24. The Poinguinim Assembly seat fell

resigning his membership of the Goa Legislative Assembly last week. Mr
Fernandes, who resigned from the Congress last week is likely to join the
ruling BJP next week. (H)

BANKING SERVICES PARALYSED: Banking services in Goa were paralysed following
the nationwide strike called by the United Forum of Bank Union demanding
early wage settlement. More than 3,000 employees including officers from 250
nationalised and private bank branches stayed away from work on August 24
morning. Only co-operative banks were open in Goa. (H)

MAN HELD FOR ABUSING 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL: The Porvorim police arrested a
20-year-old man - Subhash Ambagi - on charges of "wrongfully confining" a
10-year-old girl in the room of a deserted house at Pilerne on August 23.

shortage of vegetables coming from outside the State. (H)

DAYLIGHT BURGLARY: Burglars broke into a house at Khamamol-Curchorem in
broad daylight on Monday afternoon and decamped with gold ornaments worth
about Rs.1 lakh from the residence of Josephina Fernandes, who had gone to
reach her son to school, while her husband was out of the house on some
work. (H)

PATO-RIBANDAR BRIDGE: The PWD Minister, Mr Ramakrishna Dhavalikar, said that
the new parallel bridge at Patto-Ribandar would be inaugurated before the
Ganesh Chaturthi festival, net month. (NT)

MORMUGAO "MUSICAL" COUNCIL: Should Mormugao Municipal Council be renamed as
Mormugao 'Musicalchair' Council? Of a total of 20 councillors, so far 12
have occupied either the post of the chairperson or the vice-chairperson
even as fresh attempts are being made to replace the present incumbent,
Milton Barretto, who in fact has been taking pains to develop the council.
(Vithaldas Hegde in GT)

HEFTY TELEPHONE BILLS IN SALCETE: Tuesday saw a moderate queue of telephone
subscribers outside the telecommunicate building in Margao. Their common
complaint was that they have received excess billing, four to five times the
normal bill. An agitated woman informed BSNL officials that she does not
make any calls beyond the facility of 300 calls and wondered how she
received a bill of Rs.2,669 for the last two months. (H)

TO ATTEST DOCUMENTS: The mamlatdar's office in Salcete is facing a peculiar
problem with people thronging to the office for attestation of Xerox copies
of documents, something than can be easily done by a notary or gazetted
officer. The Salcete mamlatdar, Mr Sanjeev Desai, said that his office
receives nearly 200 xerox copies of documents in a day to be attested as
true copies. (NT)

CARMONA RESIDENT COMMITS SUICIDE: One Joseph Vaz, 47, resident of Xiro,
Carmona, committed suicide on August 24 afternoon by jumping into a well
near his house. Enquiries by the Colva police have revealed that the
deceased was staying alone since his wife had left him and was working
abroad. It is learnt that of late he was frustrated since a girl he would
frequently visit in the neighbourhood, was to get married soon. (GT)

SCHOOL CANTEENS: Is hygiene and sanitation maintained in the school
canteens. Well, a joint inspection conducted by the Food and Drug
Administration and the Health department has unearthed a bad scenario at the
canteens in some of the city-based schools and other institutions. (H)

CHIMBEL TO PANAJI BUS RIDE: With passengers literally packed to the brim,
men spitting out from the windows and the latest music hurting your ears, a
ride on a Chimbel-Merces bus from the city (Panaji) is one you will not
easily forget.But passengers are so accustomed to these problems that they
have nothing to complain. "If we have to travel daily to earn out bread and
butter, we have to go through it all," says a government employee
philosophically. (Shipa Bhide in GT)

GHM MEETING IN SALCETE: The Goa Hitrakhan Manch has planned a series of
public meetings along Salcete's coastal villages of Varca (Aug 25),
Cavelossim, Carmona, Orlim, Benaulim, Colva, Majorda and Seraulim, and
called upon the people from the coastal villages to attend the meetings and
express solidarity to the cause of Goans first. (H)

SUDA PLANS FOR MARGAO: Margao's old bus stand - opposite Margao police
headquarters - was for long considered an ideal location for a multi-storey
parking lot.But, the State Urban Development Agency's latest plan for the
old bus stand reads like this: A city centre with a 500-seating capacity
open air amphitheatre, besides food courts for eating joints, ice cream
vendors, crafts, etc, to "revitalize" the old city centre, by integrating it
with the adjoining Municipal garden. "The city centre would act as a focal
point to attract locals and tourists through organizing festivals,
exhibitions and musical shows," says the agency. (H)

HASSLE-FREE VEHICLE REGISTRATION: The State government has initiated the
process of empowering vehicle manufacturers and dealers as vehicle
registering authorities for private vehicles. The proposal, which was
announced in the Budget of 2004 by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is now
being brought into effect and a notification has been issued publishing the
draft rules. (H)

INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUES: The Health Watch Club of Government College of
Arts, Science and Commerce, Khandola, organised an inter-religious dialogues
recently. Fr Line of the Pilar society of Goa along with his team conducted
the session. (GT)

SEAT BELTS: The other day I was fined by the traffic police for not
fastening the seat belt while driving my car.It is common knowledge that
there are no provisions of seat-belts for trucks, buses, tempos and even
rickshaws. If the rule is being implemented to prevent injuries in case of
an accident than every driver must be made to use a seat belt irrespective
of the type of vehicle that is being driven. (Adelmo Fernandes, Vasco, in a
letter to Herald)

THIEVES OR THESPIANS: When can Goans expect a stable government anytime in
the future? Doubtful considering Goa's political history of defections,
floor-crossings and corruption, the only solution would be a constant
President's rule because today many politicians do not represent what their
voters want. (Edit in Herald)

GHM MEETING IN SALCETE: The Goa Hitrakhan Manch has planned a series of
public meetings along Salcete's coastal villages of Varca (Aug 25),
Cavelossim, Carmona, Orlim, Benaulim, Colva, Majorda and Seraulim, and
called upon the people from the coastal villages to attend the meetings and
express solidarity to the cause of Goans first. (H)

SUDA PLANS FOR MARGAO: Margao's old bus stand - opposite Margao police
headquarters - was for long considered an ideal location for a multi-storey
parking lot.But, the State Urban Development Agency's latest plan for the
old bus stand reads like this: A city centre with a 500-seating capacity
open air amphitheatre, besides food courts for eating joints, ice cream
vendors, crafts, etc, to "revitalize" the old city centre, by integrating it
with the adjoining Municipal garden. "The city centre would act as a focal
point to attract locals and tourists through organizing festivals,
exhibitions and musical shows," says the agency. (H)

HASSLE-FREE VEHICLE REGISTRATION: The State government has initiated the
process of empowering vehicle manufacturers and dealers as vehicle
registering authorities for private vehicles. The proposal, which was
announced in the Budget of 2004 by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is now
being brought into effect and a notification has been issued publishing the
draft rules. (H)

INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUES: The Health Watch Club of Government College of
Arts, Science and Commerce, Khandola, organised an inter-religious dialogues
recently. Fr Line of the Pilar society of Goa along with his team conducted
the session. (GT)

SEAT BELTS: The other day I was fined by the traffic police for not
fastening the seat belt while driving my car.It is common knowledge that
there are no provisions of seat-belts for trucks, buses, tempos and even
rickshaws. If the rule is being implemented to prevent injuries in case of
an accident than every driver must be made to use a seat belt irrespective
of the type of vehicle that is being driven. (Adelmo Fernandes, Vasco, in a
letter to Herald)

THIEVES OR THESPIANS: When can Goans expect a stable government anytime in
the future? Doubtful considering Goa's political history of defections,
floor-crossings and corruption, the only solution would be a constant
President's rule because today many politicians do not represent what their
voters want. (Edit in Herald)

AN AUGUST EVENT: On this auspicious day, I greet Herman Carneiro and wish
him Many Happy Returns of the Day and congratulate him for having pioneered
Goa's premier mailing list - Goanet - which celebrates its tenth
anniversary
today. On this very happy occasion, let me also wish and thank all
Goanetters, particularly, Fred Noronha, who introduced me to the mailing
list, and to Marlon Menezes, Tim de Mello, John D'Souza and Eddie Fernandes
for providing me with the facilities to continue being a member (silent

newspapers from where I draw the content for the Goacom Daily New

POINGUINIM BYE-POLL ON OCT 13: Bye-elections for the lone Poinguinim seat
in
Goa will be held on October 13 along with the Assembly elections in
Maharashtra as per the schedule announced by the Chief Election
Commissioner
TS Krishna Murthi in Panjim on August 24. The Poinguinim Assembly seat fell
vacant after Isidore Fernandes of the Congress party set a new precedent by
resigning his membership of the Goa Legislative Assembly last week. Mr
Fernandes, who resigned from the Congress last week is likely to join the
ruling BJP next week. (H)
BANKING SERVICES PARALYSED: Banking services in Goa were paralysed
following
the nationwide strike called by the United Forum of Bank Union demanding
early wage settlement. More than 3,000 employees including officers from
250
nationalised and private bank branches stayed away from work on August 24
morning. Only co-operative banks were open in Goa. (H)
MAN HELD FOR ABUSING 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL: The Porvorim police arrested a
20-year-old man - Subhash Ambagi - on charges of "wrongfully confining" a
10-year-old girl in the room of a deserted house at Pilerne on August 23.
(GT)
VEGETABLE SHORTAGE: The city vegetable market in Panjim on August 24 felt
shortage of vegetables coming from outside the State. (H)
DAYLIGHT BURGLARY: Burglars broke into a house at Khamamol-Curchorem in
broad daylight on Monday afternoon and decamped with gold ornaments worth
about Rs.1 lakh from the residence of Josephina Fernandes, who had gone to
reach her son to school, while her husband was out of the house on some
work. (H)
PATO-RIBANDAR BRIDGE: The PWD Minister, Mr Ramakrishna Dhavalikar, said
that
the new parallel bridge at Patto-Ribandar would be inaugurated before the
Ganesh Chaturthi festival, net month. (NT)
MORMUGAO "MUSICAL" COUNCIL: Should Mormugao Municipal Council be renamed as
Mormugao 'Musicalchair' Council? Of a total of 20 councillors, so far 12
have occupied either the post of the chairperson or the vice-chairperson
even as fresh attempts are being made to replace the present incumbent,
Milton Barretto, who in fact has been taking pains to develop the council.
(Vithaldas Hegde in GT)
HEFTY TELEPHONE BILLS IN SALCETE: Tuesday saw a moderate queue of telephone
subscribers outside the telecommunicate building in Margao. Their common
complaint was that they have received excess billing, four to five times
the
normal bill. An agitated woman informed BSNL officials that she does not
make any calls beyond the facility of 300 calls and wondered how she
received a bill of Rs.2,669 for the last two months. (H)
TO ATTEST DOCUMENTS: The mamlatdar's office in Salcete is facing a peculiar
problem with people thronging to the office for attestation of Xerox copies
of documents, something than can be easily done by a notary or gazetted
officer. The Salcete mamlatdar, Mr Sanjeev Desai, said that his office
receives nearly 200 xerox copies of documents in a day to be attested as
true copies. (NT)
CARMONA RESIDENT COMMITS SUICIDE: One Joseph Vaz, 47, resident of Xiro,
Carmona, committed suicide on August 24 afternoon by jumping into a well
near his house. Enquiries by the Colva police have revealed that the
deceased was staying alone since his wife had left him and was working
abroad. It is learnt that of late he was frustrated since a girl he would
frequently visit in the neighbourhood, was to get married soon. (GT)
SCHOOL CANTEENS: Is hygiene and sanitation maintained in the school
canteens. Well, a joint inspection conducted by the Food and Drug
Administration and the Health department has unearthed a bad scenario at
the
canteens in some of the city-based schools and other institutions. (H)
CHIMBEL TO PANAJI BUS RIDE: With passengers literally packed to the brim,
men spitting out from the windows and the latest music hurting your ears, a
ride on a Chimbel-Merces bus from the city (Panaji) is one you will not
easily forget.But passengers are so accustomed to these problems that they
have nothing to complain. "If we have to travel daily to earn out bread and
butter, we have to go through it all," says a government employee
philosophically. (Shipa Bhide in GT)
GHM MEETING IN SALCETE: The Goa Hitrakhan Manch has planned a series of
public meetings along Salcete's coastal villages of Varca (Aug 25),
Cavelossim, Carmona, Orlim, Benaulim, Colva, Majorda and Seraulim, and
called upon the people from the coastal villages to attend the meetings and

for the good work being done by Goanet.

AN AUGUST EVENT: On this auspicious day, I greet Herman Carneiro and wish
him Many Happy Returns of the Day and congratulate him for having pioneered
Goa's premier mailing list - Goanet - which celebrates its tenth
anniversary
today. On this very happy occasion, let me also wish and thank all
Goanetters, particularly, Fred Noronha, who introduced me to the mailing
list, and to Marlon Menezes, Tim de Mello, John D'Souza and Eddie Fernandes
for providing me with the facilities to continue being a member (silent
though) of Goanet, and several others who have encouraged me with their
good
wishes, comments and even funds. My thanks also go out to Goa's daily
newspapers from where I draw the content for the Goacom Daily New
Clippings.
Well, I don't even know the year when I joined Goanet. Viva Goanet!!! (Joel

POINGUINIM BYE-POLL ON OCT 13: Bye-elections for the lone Poinguinim seat
in
Goa will be held on October 13 along with the Assembly elections in
Maharashtra as per the schedule announced by the Chief Election
Commissioner
TS Krishna Murthi in Panjim on August 24. The Poinguinim Assembly seat fell
vacant after Isidore Fernandes of the Congress party set a new precedent by
resigning his membership of the Goa Legislative Assembly last week. Mr
Fernandes, who resigned from the Congress last week is likely to join the
ruling BJP next week. (H)
BANKING SERVICES PARALYSED: Banking services in Goa were paralysed
following
the nationwide strike called by the United Forum of Bank Union demanding
early wage settlement. More than 3,000 employees including officers from
250
nationalised and private bank branches stayed away from work on August 24
morning. Only co-operative banks were open in Goa. (H)
MAN HELD FOR ABUSING 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL: The Porvorim police arrested a
20-year-old man - Subhash Ambagi - on charges of "wrongfully confining" a
10-year-old girl in the room of a deserted house at Pilerne on August 23.
(GT)
VEGETABLE SHORTAGE: The city vegetable market in Panjim on August 24 felt
shortage of vegetables coming from outside the State. (H)
DAYLIGHT BURGLARY: Burglars broke into a house at Khamamol-Curchorem in
broad daylight on Monday afternoon and decamped with gold ornaments worth
about Rs.1 lakh from the residence of Josephina Fernandes, who had gone to
reach her son to school, while her husband was out of the house on some
work. (H)
PATO-RIBANDAR BRIDGE: The PWD Minister, Mr Ramakrishna Dhavalikar, said
that
the new parallel bridge at Patto-Ribandar would be inaugurated before the
Ganesh Chaturthi festival, net month. (NT)
MORMUGAO "MUSICAL" COUNCIL: Should Mormugao Municipal Council be renamed as
Mormugao 'Musicalchair' Council? Of a total of 20 councillors, so far 12
have occupied either the post of the chairperson or the vice-chairperson
even as fresh attempts are being made to replace the present incumbent,
Milton Barretto, who in fact has been taking pains to develop the council.
(Vithaldas Hegde in GT)
HEFTY TELEPHONE BILLS IN SALCETE: Tuesday saw a moderate queue of telephone
subscribers outside the telecommunicate building in Margao. Their common
complaint was that they have received excess billing, four to five times
the
normal bill. An agitated woman informed BSNL officials that she does not
make any calls beyond the facility of 300 calls and wondered how she
received a bill of Rs.2,669 for the last two months. (H)
TO ATTEST DOCUMENTS: The mamlatdar's office in Salcete is facing a peculiar
problem with people thronging to the office for attestation of Xerox copies
of documents, something than can be easily done by a notary or gazetted
officer. The Salcete mamlatdar, Mr Sanjeev Desai, said that his office
receives nearly 200 xerox copies of documents in a day to be attested as
true copies. (NT)
CARMONA RESIDENT COMMITS SUICIDE: One Joseph Vaz, 47, resident of Xiro,
Carmona, committed suicide on August 24 afternoon by jumping into a well
near his house. Enquiries by the Colva police have revealed that the
deceased was staying alone since his wife had left him and was working
abroad. It is learnt that of late he was frustrated since a girl he would
frequently visit in the neighbourhood, was to get married soon. (GT)
SCHOOL CANTEENS: Is hygiene and sanitation maintained in the school
canteens. Well, a joint inspection conducted by the Food and Drug
Administration and the Health department has unearthed a bad scenario at
the
canteens in some of the city-based schools and other institutions. (H)
CHIMBEL TO PANAJI BUS RIDE: With passengers literally packed to the brim,
men spitting out from the windows and the latest music hurting your ears, a
ride on a Chimbel-Merces bus from the city (Panaji) is one you will not
easily forget.But passengers are so accustomed to these problems that they
have nothing to complain. "If we have to travel daily to earn out bread and
butter, we have to go through it all," says a government employee
philosophically. (Shipa Bhide in GT)
GHM MEETING IN SALCETE: The Goa Hitrakhan Manch has planned a series of
public meetings along Salcete's coastal villages of Varca (Aug 25),
Cavelossim, Carmona, Orlim, Benaulim, Colva, Majorda and Seraulim, and
called upon the people from the coastal villages to attend the meetings and
express solidarity to the cause of Goans first. (H)
SUDA PLANS FOR MARGAO: Margao's old bus stand - opposite Margao police
headquarters - was for long considered an ideal location for a multi-storey
parking lot.But, the State Urban Development Agency's latest plan for the
old bus stand reads like this: A city centre with a 500-seating capacity
open air amphitheatre, besides food courts for eating joints, ice cream
vendors, crafts, etc, to "revitalize" the old city centre, by integrating
it
with the adjoining Municipal garden. "The city centre would act as a focal
point to attract locals and tourists through organizing festivals,
exhibitions and musical shows," says the agency. (H)
HASSLE-FREE VEHICLE REGISTRATION: The State government has initiated the
process of empowering vehicle manufacturers and dealers as vehicle
registering authorities for private vehicles. The proposal, which was
announced in the Budget of 2004 by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is now
being brought into effect and a notification has been issued publishing the
draft rules. (H)
INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUES: The Health Watch Club of Government College of
Arts, Science and Commerce, Khandola, organised an inter-religious
dialogues
recently. Fr Line of the Pilar society of Goa along with his team conducted
the session. (GT)
SEAT BELTS: The other day I was fined by the traffic police for not
fastening the seat belt while driving my car.It is common knowledge that
there are no provisions of seat-belts for trucks, buses, tempos and even
rickshaws. If the rule is being implemented to prevent injuries in case of
an accident than every driver must be made to use a seat belt irrespective
of the type of vehicle that is being driven. (Adelmo Fernandes, Vasco, in a
letter to Herald)
THIEVES OR THESPIANS: When can Goans expect a stable government anytime in
the future? Doubtful considering Goa's political history of defections,
floor-crossings and corruption, the only solution would be a constant
President's rule because today many politicians do not represent what their
voters want. (Edit in Herald)
S P O R T S
FR AGNEL COLLEGE ROUT ARCHITECTURE: Fr Agnel College (Pilar) trounced Goa
College of Architecture 6-0. While Dempo earned walkover against Pharmacy
College, Bandekar's cruised to a 4-0 victory over Fine Arts. Don Bosco won

deceased was staying alone since his wife had left him and was working
abroad. It is learnt that of late he was frustrated since a girl he would
frequently visit in the neighbourhood, was to get married soon. (GT)
SCHOOL CANTEENS: Is hygiene and sanitation maintained in the school
canteens. Well, a joint inspection conducted by the Food and Drug
Administration and the Health department has unearthed a bad scenario at
the
canteens in some of the city-based schools and other institutions. (H)
CHIMBEL TO PANAJI BUS RIDE: With passengers literally packed to the brim,
men spitting out from the windows and the latest music hurting your ears, a
ride on a Chimbel-Merces bus from the city (Panaji) is one you will not
easily forget.But passengers are so accustomed to these problems that they
have nothing to complain. "If we have to travel daily to earn out bread and
butter, we have to go through it all," says a government employee
philosophically. (Shipa Bhide in GT)
GHM MEETING IN SALCETE: The Goa Hitrakhan Manch has planned a series of
public meetings along Salcete's coastal villages of Varca (Aug 25),
Cavelossim, Carmona, Orlim, Benaulim, Colva, Majorda and Seraulim, and
called upon the people from the coastal villages to attend the meetings and
express solidarity to the cause of Goans first. (H)
SUDA PLANS FOR MARGAO: Margao's old bus stand - opposite Margao police
headquarters - was for long considered an ideal location for a multi-storey
parking lot.But, the State Urban Development Agency's latest plan for the
old bus stand reads like this: A city centre with a 500-seating capacity
open air amphitheatre, besides food courts for eating joints, ice cream
vendors, crafts, etc, to "revitalize" the old city centre, by integrating
it
with the adjoining Municipal garden. "The city centre would act as a focal
point to attract locals and tourists through organizing festivals,
exhibitions and musical shows," says the agency. (H)
HASSLE-FREE VEHICLE REGISTRATION: The State government has initiated the
process of empowering vehicle manufacturers and dealers as vehicle
registering authorities for private vehicles. The proposal, which was
announced in the Budget of 2004 by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is now
being brought into effect and a notification has been issued publishing the
draft rules. (H)
INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUES: The Health Watch Club of Government College of
Arts, Science and Commerce, Khandola, organised an inter-religious
dialogues
recently. Fr Line of the Pilar society of Goa along with his team conducted
the session. (GT)
SEAT BELTS: The other day I was fined by the traffic police for not
fastening the seat belt while driving my car.It is common knowledge that
there are no provisions of seat-belts for trucks, buses, tempos and even
rickshaws. If the rule is being implemented to prevent injuries in case of
an accident than every driver must be made to use a seat belt irrespective
of the type of vehicle that is being driven. (Adelmo Fernandes, Vasco, in a
letter to Herald)
THIEVES OR THESPIANS: When can Goans expect a stable government anytime in
the future? Doubtful considering Goa's political history of defections,
floor-crossings and corruption, the only solution would be a constant
President's rule because today many politicians do not represent what their
voters want. (Edit in Herald)

HEFTY TELEPHONE BILLS IN SALCETE: Tuesday saw a moderate queue of telephone
subscribers outside the telecommunicate building in Margao. Their common
complaint was that they have received excess billing, four to five times the

received a bill of Rs.2,669 for the last two months. (H)

receives nearly 200 xerox copies of documents in a day to be attested as
true copies. (NT)

Goa's premier mailing list - Goanet - which celebrates its tenth anniversary
today. On this very happy occasion, let me also wish and thank all
Goanetters, particularly, Fred Noronha, who introduced me to the mailing

for providing me with the facilities to continue being a member (silent

POINGUINIM BYE-POLL ON OCT 13: Bye-elections for the lone Poinguinim seat in
Goa will be held on October 13 along with the Assembly elections in
Maharashtra as per the schedule announced by the Chief Election Commissioner
TS Krishna Murthi in Panjim on August 24. The Poinguinim Assembly seat fell
vacant after Isidore Fernandes of the Congress party set a new precedent by
resigning his membership of the Goa Legislative Assembly last week. Mr
Fernandes, who resigned from the Congress last week is likely to join the
ruling BJP next week. (H)

BANKING SERVICES PARALYSED: Banking services in Goa were paralysed following
the nationwide strike called by the United Forum of Bank Union demanding
early wage settlement. More than 3,000 employees including officers from 250
nationalised and private bank branches stayed away from work on August 24
morning. Only co-operative banks were open in Goa. (H)

MAN HELD FOR ABUSING 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL: The Porvorim police arrested a
20-year-old man - Subhash Ambagi - on charges of "wrongfully confining" a
10-year-old girl in the room of a deserted house at Pilerne on August 23.
(GT)

VEGETABLE SHORTAGE: The city vegetable market in Panjim on August 24 felt
shortage of vegetables coming from outside the State. (H)

DAYLIGHT BURGLARY: Burglars broke into a house at Khamamol-Curchorem in
broad daylight on Monday afternoon and decamped with gold ornaments worth
about Rs.1 lakh from the residence of Josephina Fernandes, who had gone to
reach her son to school, while her husband was out of the house on some
work. (H)

PATO-RIBANDAR BRIDGE: The PWD Minister, Mr Ramakrishna Dhavalikar, said that
the new parallel bridge at Patto-Ribandar would be inaugurated before the
Ganesh Chaturthi festival, net month. (NT)

MORMUGAO "MUSICAL" COUNCIL: Should Mormugao Municipal Council be renamed as
Mormugao 'Musicalchair' Council? Of a total of 20 councillors, so far 12
have occupied either the post of the chairperson or the vice-chairperson
even as fresh attempts are being made to replace the present incumbent,
Milton Barretto, who in fact has been taking pains to develop the council.
(Vithaldas Hegde in GT)

HEFTY TELEPHONE BILLS IN SALCETE: Tuesday saw a moderate queue of telephone
subscribers outside the telecommunicate building in Margao. Their common
complaint was that they have received excess billing, four to five times the
normal bill. An agitated woman informed BSNL officials that she does not
make any calls beyond the facility of 300 calls and wondered how she
received a bill of Rs.2,669 for the last two months. (H)

TO ATTEST DOCUMENTS: The mamlatdar's office in Salcete is facing a peculiar
problem with people thronging to the office for attestation of Xerox copies
of documents, something than can be easily done by a notary or gazetted
officer. The Salcete mamlatdar, Mr Sanjeev Desai, said that his office
receives nearly 200 xerox copies of documents in a day to be attested as
true copies. (NT)

CARMONA RESIDENT COMMITS SUICIDE: One Joseph Vaz, 47, resident of Xiro,
Carmona, committed suicide on August 24 afternoon by jumping into a well
near his house. Enquiries by the Colva police have revealed that the
deceased was staying alone since his wife had left him and was working
abroad. It is learnt that of late he was frustrated since a girl he would
frequently visit in the neighbourhood, was to get married soon. (GT)

SCHOOL CANTEENS: Is hygiene and sanitation maintained in the school
canteens. Well, a joint inspection conducted by the Food and Drug
Administration and the Health department has unearthed a bad scenario at the
canteens in some of the city-based schools and other institutions. (H)

CHIMBEL TO PANAJI BUS RIDE: With passengers literally packed to the brim,
men spitting out from the windows and the latest music hurting your ears, a
ride on a Chimbel-Merces bus from the city (Panaji) is one you will not
easily forget.But passengers are so accustomed to these problems that they
have nothing to complain. "If we have to travel daily to earn out bread and
butter, we have to go through it all," says a government employee
philosophically. (Shipa Bhide in GT)

GHM MEETING IN SALCETE: The Goa Hitrakhan Manch has planned a series of
public meetings along Salcete's coastal villages of Varca (Aug 25),
Cavelossim, Carmona, Orlim, Benaulim, Colva, Majorda and Seraulim, and
called upon the people from the coastal villages to attend the meetings and
express solidarity to the cause of Goans first. (H)

SUDA PLANS FOR MARGAO: Margao's old bus stand - opposite Margao police
headquarters - was for long considered an ideal location for a multi-storey
parking lot.But, the State Urban Development Agency's latest plan for the
old bus stand reads like this: A city centre with a 500-seating capacity
open air amphitheatre, besides food courts for eating joints, ice cream
vendors, crafts, etc, to "revitalize" the old city centre, by integrating it
with the adjoining Municipal garden. "The city centre would act as a focal
point to attract locals and tourists through organizing festivals,
exhibitions and musical shows," says the agency. (H)

HASSLE-FREE VEHICLE REGISTRATION: The State government has initiated the
process of empowering vehicle manufacturers and dealers as vehicle
registering authorities for private vehicles. The proposal, which was
announced in the Budget of 2004 by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is now
being brought into effect and a notification has been issued publishing the
draft rules. (H)

INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUES: The Health Watch Club of Government College of
Arts, Science and Commerce, Khandola, organised an inter-religious dialogues
recently. Fr Line of the Pilar society of Goa along with his team conducted
the session. (GT)

SEAT BELTS: The other day I was fined by the traffic police for not
fastening the seat belt while driving my car.It is common knowledge that
there are no provisions of seat-belts for trucks, buses, tempos and even
rickshaws. If the rule is being implemented to prevent injuries in case of
an accident than every driver must be made to use a seat belt irrespective
of the type of vehicle that is being driven. (Adelmo Fernandes, Vasco, in a
letter to Herald)

THIEVES OR THESPIANS: When can Goans expect a stable government anytime in
the future? Doubtful considering Goa's political history of defections,
floor-crossings and corruption, the only solution would be a constant
President's rule because today many politicians do not represent what their
voters want. (Edit in Herald)

normal bill. An agitated woman informed BSNL officials that she does not
make any calls beyond the facility of 300 calls and wondered how she
received a bill of Rs.2,669 for the last two months. (H)

TO ATTEST DOCUMENTS: The mamlatdar's office in Salcete is facing a peculiar
problem with people thronging to the office for attestation of Xerox copies
of documents, something than can be easily done by a notary or gazetted
officer. The Salcete mamlatdar, Mr Sanjeev Desai, said that his office
receives nearly 200 xerox copies of documents in a day to be attested as
true copies. (NT)

CARMONA RESIDENT COMMITS SUICIDE: One Joseph Vaz, 47, resident of Xiro,
Carmona, committed suicide on August 24 afternoon by jumping into a well
near his house. Enquiries by the Colva police have revealed that the
deceased was staying alone since his wife had left him and was working
abroad. It is learnt that of late he was frustrated since a girl he would
frequently visit in the neighbourhood, was to get married soon. (GT)

SCHOOL CANTEENS: Is hygiene and sanitation maintained in the school
canteens. Well, a joint inspection conducted by the Food and Drug
Administration and the Health department has unearthed a bad scenario at the
canteens in some of the city-based schools and other institutions. (H)

CHIMBEL TO PANAJI BUS RIDE: With passengers literally packed to the brim,
men spitting out from the windows and the latest music hurting your ears, a
ride on a Chimbel-Merces bus from the city (Panaji) is one you will not
easily forget.But passengers are so accustomed to these problems that they
have nothing to complain. "If we have to travel daily to earn out bread and
butter, we have to go through it all," says a government employee
philosophically. (Shipa Bhide in GT)

GHM MEETING IN SALCETE: The Goa Hitrakhan Manch has planned a series of
public meetings along Salcete's coastal villages of Varca (Aug 25),
Cavelossim, Carmona, Orlim, Benaulim, Colva, Majorda and Seraulim, and
called upon the people from the coastal villages to attend the meetings and
express solidarity to the cause of Goans first. (H)

SUDA PLANS FOR MARGAO: Margao's old bus stand - opposite Margao police
headquarters - was for long considered an ideal location for a multi-storey
parking lot.But, the State Urban Development Agency's latest plan for the
old bus stand reads like this: A city centre with a 500-seating capacity
open air amphitheatre, besides food courts for eating joints, ice cream
vendors, crafts, etc, to "revitalize" the old city centre, by integrating it
with the adjoining Municipal garden. "The city centre would act as a focal
point to attract locals and tourists through organizing festivals,
exhibitions and musical shows," says the agency. (H)

HASSLE-FREE VEHICLE REGISTRATION: The State government has initiated the
process of empowering vehicle manufacturers and dealers as vehicle
registering authorities for private vehicles. The proposal, which was
announced in the Budget of 2004 by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is now
being brought into effect and a notification has been issued publishing the
draft rules. (H)

INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUES: The Health Watch Club of Government College of
Arts, Science and Commerce, Khandola, organised an inter-religious dialogues
recently. Fr Line of the Pilar society of Goa along with his team conducted
the session. (GT)

SEAT BELTS: The other day I was fined by the traffic police for not
fastening the seat belt while driving my car.It is common knowledge that
there are no provisions of seat-belts for trucks, buses, tempos and even
rickshaws. If the rule is being implemented to prevent injuries in case of
an accident than every driver must be made to use a seat belt irrespective
of the type of vehicle that is being driven. (Adelmo Fernandes, Vasco, in a
letter to Herald)

THIEVES OR THESPIANS: When can Goans expect a stable government anytime in
the future? Doubtful considering Goa's political history of defections,
floor-crossings and corruption, the only solution would be a constant
President's rule because today many politicians do not represent what their
voters want. (Edit in Herald)

in
Goa will be held on October 13 along with the Assembly elections in
Maharashtra as per the schedule announced by the Chief Election
Commissioner
TS Krishna Murthi in Panjim on August 24. The Poinguinim Assembly seat fell

resigning his membership of the Goa Legislative Assembly last week. Mr
Fernandes, who resigned from the Congress last week is likely to join the
ruling BJP next week. (H)

following
the nationwide strike called by the United Forum of Bank Union demanding

MORMUGAO "MUSICAL" COUNCIL: Should Mormugao Municipal Council be renamed as
Mormugao 'Musicalchair' Council? Of a total of 20 councillors, so far 12
have occupied either the post of the chairperson or the vice-chairperson
even as fresh attempts are being made to replace the present incumbent,
Milton Barretto, who in fact has been taking pains to develop the council.
