House co-celebrated the mass with six Canons. (H)

COST HIM HIS LIFE: When 38-year-old Austin Soares of Quitula-Aldona was
critically injured in a road mishap at Soddo-Aldona on Friday afternoon,
rushing him to the hospital at the earliest was a matter of life and death.
Tragically, it turned to be the latter, largely because of the absence of
the lone ambulance at the Aldona Primary Health Centre, which was placed at

30 precious minutes, it was a foreigner, who rushed Austin to the GMC where
he (Austin) succumbed to the injuries. (H)

who brought to the notice of the legislative assembly that residents of
Veroda, Panzarconnem and Guirdolim have not been receiving water for the
last 15 days. (NT)

TO EASE WATER WOES: "Today, nations fight for petrol but after 10 years,
the war will be for the want of water," remarked Chief Minister Manohar
Parrikar, on Sunday after laying the foundation stone for the augmentation
of water supply from the main canal of the Selaulim Irrigation Project to
Opa Water Works through the Kalay and Khandepar rivers. Stating the budget
would stress on development of rural areas, the chief minister said during
the next two years around 400 existing lakes in the State would be desilted
to increase water with co-operation of the people. (H)

"HYACINTH" CAN POSE PROBLEMS: One of the fastest growing aquatic weed,

Visiting Goa to study corruption --- That's funny! I'm sure the US team
will pick up some pointers on corruption. They are however approaching the
wrong departments. Tell them to start with the government officials &
panchayat bodies first.

potential threat as several ships are scheduled to arrive from China,
Korea, Hong Kong and Australia in the next one week. (H)

"POLITICAL PATRONAGE": Aldona MLA Dayanand Narvekar charged that the

the centre to ban employment of minor children in liquor bars and
restaurants in Goa. This was informed by the Health Minister, Dr Suresh
Amonkar in the Goa Assembly on April 7. (H)

MOBILE PHONE SERVICE ON KRC TRAINS: The Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd
added another 'first' to its list. It became the first railway service to
provide mobile phone service in its Mumbai-bound trains to make passengers
feel at home. While local call mobile to mobile costs Rs.12 per minute,
it's Rs.13 per minute if you dial a land line. For STD, the rates are Rs.14
per minute for mobile to mobile while Rs.23 per minute for mobile to land
line. (NT)

MARGAO TRAFFIC CELL'S EARNINGS: The Margao police Traffic Cell collected a

the House during the Question Hour. (H)

WOMAN KILLED: An elderly woman, Laxmi alias Kasturi Vishnu Raikar from
Tishem-Borim, died when a bus struck her down while she was crossing the
road. (H)

WOMAN DISTURBS MASS: A mentally unsound woman, in her fifties, disturbed
the 10 am mass on Sunday at the Se Cathedral in Old Goa, much to the
embarrassment of the 300-odd congregation. As the mass was going on, the
woman barged into the cathedral and began yelling at the top of her voice.
Parish priest Fr Adolf Viegas along with Fr Santan Faleiro of the Bishop's
House co-celebrated the mass with six Canons. (H)

DOGS SHATTER WOMAN'S LIFE: Mrs Laxmi Bhosle from Beloy-Nuvem was walking
towards the cashew plantation when she saw a dreaded dog of Punit Prasad
Jain approaching her. In a matter of few seconds she was on the ground with
the dog biting her foot. Even before she could yell for help three more
dogs had joined in, ferociously cutting into her flesh. It is more than
twelve days now Laxmi is living with the killing pains at the GMC hospital,
her poor husband unable to pay for the medicines as well as some attendant
to look after her at the hospital. (H)

REMOVAL OF "RIVER PRINCESS": The government has asked Salgaocar Mining

of Morjim, Mandrem, Harmal and Keri, besides one small village, Paliyem,
situated on the bank of river Terekhol, is to become a major tourist centre
in years to come following various tourism related projects proposed for
the constituency. Mandrem constituency endowed with all three aspects of
scenic beauty, water, green vegetation and pleasant climate is already
popular as a tourist centre, notwithstanding the dearth of certain
facilities. (Suhas Parsekar in GT)


COST HIM HIS LIFE: When 38-year-old Austin Soares of Quitula-Aldona was
critically injured in a road mishap at Soddo-Aldona on Friday afternoon,
rushing him to the hospital at the earliest was a matter of life and death.
Tragically, it turned to be the latter, largely because of the absence of
the lone ambulance at the Aldona Primary Health Centre, which was placed at
the disposal of the ongoing Goa Assembly session. After a delay of nearly
30 precious minutes, it was a foreigner, who rushed Austin to the GMC where
he (Austin) succumbed to the injuries. (H)

Parrikar, on Sunday after laying the foundation stone for the augmentation
of water supply from the main canal of the Selaulim Irrigation Project to

to increase water with co-operation of the people. (H)

"HYACINTH" CAN POSE PROBLEMS: One of the fastest growing aquatic weed,
