* Students of PCC protest against the increase in fees * Bus owners
oppose Government move of starting shuttle service in Curchorem.

INDEPENDENCE DAY GREETINGS: Governor SC Jamir, Chief Minister Parrikar and
Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao have extended warm greetings to the people of
Goa on the occasion of the 58th Independence Day. "We celebrate this solemn
occasion with profound sense of patriotism and national commitment. We
should be proud of the fact that ours is the biggest democracy in the world,
and, we have been able to make great strides in every field of life during
the last five and a half decades," Jamir said. (WE-GT)

ISIDORE STILL UNDECIDED: The crisis in the Congress camp over the reported
move by Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes to quit the party does not seem to
have blown over as he is yet to take a firm decision in the matter. (WE-GT)

THIEVES BREAK INTO BANK: The Zambaulim branch of the State Bank of India was
broken into by thieves. However, the burglary attempt was unsuccessful as
the alarm went off just when the thieves broke open the lock of the front
door. (NT)

IMPATIENT BOAT OWNERS IGNORE BAN: A day before the High Court monitored ban
on fishing was to end on August 15, mechanized boats ventured out in the
Arabian sea from South Goa's fishing hub off Cutbona, netting tones of the
prized solar shrimp off the Goa coast. Around 100-odd fishing vessels left
the Cutbona jetty in the wee hours of Saturday. Vessels anchored at Vasco
also joined them and one could see a fleet of mechanized boats fishing close
to the coast. Reports indicate that the total catch of solar prawns unloaded
at the Cutbona fishing jetty was put at nearly 100 tonnes. (H)

BAINA BEACH ROCKS TO WESTERN MUSIC: Music played its role in literally
setting Baina free from the stigma of infamy that had soiled its beach.
Joining hands with Think Geek, an event management group, the Mormugao
Municipal Council led by its ebullient chairperson Milton Barreto, has taken
up the challenge of opening up Baina beach for entertainment activities
aimed at the benefit of the Vascoites. Coming as it did on the eve of the
Independence Day, the timing of the move could not have been more perfect.
The beach was thrown open to school children who were invited for a drawing
competition. It drew a massive response with children from Vasco flocking to
the venue and participating in the event. (WE-GT)

CHODAN BRIDGE ROUTES: The Chodan-Maddel panchayat has agreed to any of the
two proposed bridge routes shortlisted by the State government on he Mapusa
river, which would link the island with the mainland. (H)

GT BATTLE OF THE BANDS: We were amidst a barrage of music coming from some
of the best bands of Goa, at the Gomantak Times Battle of the Bands on
August 14 at Club Westend, Saligao. The campaign started with Mortal Sin,
Margao. Next were the Ice Cubes, followed Induz with lovely Vanessa singing
the lead, Kismet fusion rock band, Onward Christian Soldiers, Forbidden,
Gravity, etc. (WE-GT)

CM TO WOO MUMBAI INDUSTRIALISTS: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has laid
out the red carpet in a bid to attract industrialists from Mumbai. "We are
ready to go to any lengths to solve the problems faced by industrialists if
they are coming to Goa," Parrikar told industry captains at a business meet
organised by CCI at Mumbai. (H)

.A JEWEL IN THE CROWN: A hundred and five days from now Goa will host the
International Film Festival of India from 29 November to 10 December. The
shabby-looking capital city with broken footpaths and dug-up roads would be
decked up to welcome artists and guests alike during the ten-day gala event.
The Goa government is sparing no efforts, money and infrastructure to turn
the host city into a paradise, of beauty and comfort by changing the very
look and feel of the ancient fishing village which now sports the crown of
being the 'numero uno' city of the ancient 'Govapuri'. (Jyoti Dhond in
WE-GT)

'BARRA DO SALAD': Urban Development Minister recently inaugurated "Barra do
Salad" at Sincro Hotel building, Fatorda. Barra do Salad, owned by Berrly
Mathew has opened a new concept in healthy eating. This outlet offers a
variety of 'negative calories food' - a novel concept which has been popular
among persons who are conscious about the food they eat. (WE-GT)

LADY BUS CONDUCTORS: And, now the private bus owners have announced plans to
recruit lady bus conductors. The Goa Bus Owner Association has made an
appeal to the private bus owners to employ women as bus conductors to bring
in discipline in the buses. The appeal comes in the wake of numerous
complaints that bus conductors behave in a rude manner with the passengers,
including students and senior citizens. (H)

HOW ABOUT A SAFE GOA FOR CHILDREN? Don't the police verify the antecedents
of foreigners who get in and out of the State (while they are so keen to
check out the antecedents of locals who may write/voice unsavoury stuff
about them). How do they let 'white skin' prostitution thrive in the seedy
motels of north Goa? There are enough Russians and Czech girls blatantly
soliciting eager-beaver at nightclubs. Not to mention the transvestite
population that gets into the State during peak season.Goa is a cesspool of
crime against women and children, because the settings are so perfect.
(Ethel da Costa in Herald Mirror)

UNITING GOANS ACROSS THE WORLD: Rene Barreto acknowledged as the Father of
World Goa Day, swings into action once again, exhorting Goans of the world
to celebrate being Goan. An UK-based Goan NRI proves that while you can take
the Goan out of Goa, it's not easy to take Goa out of the Goan. Non-Resident
Goans of all shapes, sizes and vintage jumped at his idea of a World Goa Day
in 2000. Resident Goans are lukewarm about a World Goa Day but a fever is
already building up among the Goan clubs in India and abroad. This is a day
to celebrate quintessential Goa - traditions, heritage, culture, cuisine,
music, literature, poetry - anything and everything that is truly Goan.
(Bevinda Collaco)

BOOK ON MHAMAIS: One more chapter was added to the scholarly pursuits of Dr
SK Mhamai, with the release of a new book "Mhamais of Goa in the network of
Trade and Culture". The book was released on August 14 by Shrinivas V Dempo,
who eulogized the efforts of Dr Mhamai. The book is supported financially by
Fundacao Oriente. (NT)

SIOLIM'S DALTON TO GET GALLANTRY AWARD: Group Captain Conrad Anthony Dalton,
VM, from Siolim, is poised to be the first Goan air force officer to be
bestowed with a gallantry award at the secretariat, Porvorim, today, on the
occasion of Independence Day. Dalton is one of the few Goan air force
officers in the country, having flown extensively for 24 years, logging an
impressive 6700 hours of accident free flying. He has flown in all
operational sectors of the country and has served tenures in Bomber,
Reconnaissance and Maritime strike and transport squadrons. He is the
son-in-law of famous artist and pioneer of Indian Christian Art, Angelo da
Fonseca. (WE-GT)

SALGAOCAR DOWN CHURCHILL: Adapting well to the wet Nehru Stadium, Fatorda,
Salgaocar Sports Club rode on goals by striker Lecto Calada and defender
Bello Rasaq to beat Coca Cola Churchill Brothers 2-0 in the GFA charity
match on August 14. (H)

SIOLIM PARISH YOUTH FOOTBALL: Nagoa-Arpora altar-boys defeated Moira altar
boys 1-0 to emerge victorious in the seven-a-side football tournament
organised by the Parish youth of Siolim, under the direction of Fr. Romeo
Godinho (animator), at Siolim Church ground this evening. The altar-boys,
coming from 27 parishes in North Goa, were welcomed by Fr. Jose Roque
Gonsalves (parish priest of Siolim) who gave a motivating talk on Vocation.
The Altar-boys, gave a lively, energetic and playful through out the
tournament. Fr. Eusico Pereira (Spiritual director of Saligao Seminary) was
the chief guest, guest of honour Alexyz (cartoonist), Mrs. Rosalia Barreto
(P.P.C. chairman), Fr. Herenencio de Souza (Assagao parish priest). Alexyz
said "keep scoring to be a good altar-boy, keep scoring to be a good
footballer, keep scoring in whatever you do". It was an enriching experience
for the altar boys from different parishes who met each other, exchanged
their views, lived the spirit of friendship and displayed their talents on a
common playground. ("priyanka fernandes" kimss4 at rediffmail.com)

* Students of PCC protest against the increase in fees * Bus owners
oppose Government move of starting shuttle service in Curchorem.

INDEPENDENCE DAY GREETINGS: Governor SC Jamir, Chief Minister Parrikar and
Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao have extended warm greetings to the people of
Goa on the occasion of the 58th Independence Day. "We celebrate this solemn
occasion with profound sense of patriotism and national commitment. We
should be proud of the fact that ours is the biggest democracy in the world,
and, we have been able to make great strides in every field of life during
the last five and a half decades," Jamir said. (WE-GT)

ISIDORE STILL UNDECIDED: The crisis in the Congress camp over the reported
move by Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes to quit the party does not seem to
have blown over as he is yet to take a firm decision in the matter. (WE-GT)

THIEVES BREAK INTO BANK: The Zambaulim branch of the State Bank of India was
broken into by thieves. However, the burglary attempt was unsuccessful as
the alarm went off just when the thieves broke open the lock of the front
door. (NT)

IMPATIENT BOAT OWNERS IGNORE BAN: A day before the High Court monitored ban
on fishing was to end on August 15, mechanized boats ventured out in the
Arabian sea from South Goa's fishing hub off Cutbona, netting tones of the
prized solar shrimp off the Goa coast. Around 100-odd fishing vessels left
the Cutbona jetty in the wee hours of Saturday. Vessels anchored at Vasco
also joined them and one could see a fleet of mechanized boats fishing close
to the coast. Reports indicate that the total catch of solar prawns unloaded
at the Cutbona fishing jetty was put at nearly 100 tonnes. (H)

BAINA BEACH ROCKS TO WESTERN MUSIC: Music played its role in literally
setting Baina free from the stigma of infamy that had soiled its beach.
Joining hands with Think Geek, an event management group, the Mormugao
Municipal Council led by its ebullient chairperson Milton Barreto, has taken
up the challenge of opening up Baina beach for entertainment activities
aimed at the benefit of the Vascoites. Coming as it did on the eve of the
Independence Day, the timing of the move could not have been more perfect.
The beach was thrown open to school children who were invited for a drawing
competition. It drew a massive response with children from Vasco flocking to
the venue and participating in the event. (WE-GT)

CHODAN BRIDGE ROUTES: The Chodan-Maddel panchayat has agreed to any of the
two proposed bridge routes shortlisted by the State government on he Mapusa
river, which would link the island with the mainland. (H)

GT BATTLE OF THE BANDS: We were amidst a barrage of music coming from some
of the best bands of Goa, at the Gomantak Times Battle of the Bands on
August 14 at Club Westend, Saligao. The campaign started with Mortal Sin,
Margao. Next were the Ice Cubes, followed Induz with lovely Vanessa singing
the lead, Kismet fusion rock band, Onward Christian Soldiers, Forbidden,
Gravity, etc. (WE-GT)

CM TO WOO MUMBAI INDUSTRIALISTS: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has laid
out the red carpet in a bid to attract industrialists from Mumbai. "We are
ready to go to any lengths to solve the problems faced by industrialists if
they are coming to Goa," Parrikar told industry captains at a business meet
organised by CCI at Mumbai. (H)

.A JEWEL IN THE CROWN: A hundred and five days from now Goa will host the
International Film Festival of India from 29 November to 10 December. The
shabby-looking capital city with broken footpaths and dug-up roads would be
decked up to welcome artists and guests alike during the ten-day gala event.
The Goa government is sparing no efforts, money and infrastructure to turn
the host city into a paradise, of beauty and comfort by changing the very
look and feel of the ancient fishing village which now sports the crown of
being the 'numero uno' city of the ancient 'Govapuri'. (Jyoti Dhond in
WE-GT)

'BARRA DO SALAD': Urban Development Minister recently inaugurated "Barra do
Salad" at Sincro Hotel building, Fatorda. Barra do Salad, owned by Berrly
Mathew has opened a new concept in healthy eating. This outlet offers a
variety of 'negative calories food' - a novel concept which has been popular
among persons who are conscious about the food they eat. (WE-GT)

LADY BUS CONDUCTORS: And, now the private bus owners have announced plans to
recruit lady bus conductors. The Goa Bus Owner Association has made an
appeal to the private bus owners to employ women as bus conductors to bring
in discipline in the buses. The appeal comes in the wake of numerous
complaints that bus conductors behave in a rude manner with the passengers,
including students and senior citizens. (H)

HOW ABOUT A SAFE GOA FOR CHILDREN? Don't the police verify the antecedents
of foreigners who get in and out of the State (while they are so keen to
check out the antecedents of locals who may write/voice unsavoury stuff
about them). How do they let 'white skin' prostitution thrive in the seedy
motels of north Goa? There are enough Russians and Czech girls blatantly
soliciting eager-beaver at nightclubs. Not to mention the transvestite
population that gets into the State during peak season.Goa is a cesspool of
crime against women and children, because the settings are so perfect.
(Ethel da Costa in Herald Mirror)

UNITING GOANS ACROSS THE WORLD: Rene Barreto acknowledged as the Father of
World Goa Day, swings into action once again, exhorting Goans of the world
to celebrate being Goan. An UK-based Goan NRI proves that while you can take
the Goan out of Goa, it's not easy to take Goa out of the Goan. Non-Resident
Goans of all shapes, sizes and vintage jumped at his idea of a World Goa Day
in 2000. Resident Goans are lukewarm about a World Goa Day but a fever is
already building up among the Goan clubs in India and abroad. This is a day
to celebrate quintessential Goa - traditions, heritage, culture, cuisine,
music, literature, poetry - anything and everything that is truly Goan.
(Bevinda Collaco)

BOOK ON MHAMAIS: One more chapter was added to the scholarly pursuits of Dr
SK Mhamai, with the release of a new book "Mhamais of Goa in the network of
Trade and Culture". The book was released on August 14 by Shrinivas V Dempo,
who eulogized the efforts of Dr Mhamai. The book is supported financially by
Fundacao Oriente. (NT)

SIOLIM'S DALTON TO GET GALLANTRY AWARD: Group Captain Conrad Anthony Dalton,
VM, from Siolim, is poised to be the first Goan air force officer to be
bestowed with a gallantry award at the secretariat, Porvorim, today, on the
occasion of Independence Day. Dalton is one of the few Goan air force
officers in the country, having flown extensively for 24 years, logging an
impressive 6700 hours of accident free flying. He has flown in all
operational sectors of the country and has served tenures in Bomber,
Reconnaissance and Maritime strike and transport squadrons. He is the
son-in-law of famous artist and pioneer of Indian Christian Art, Angelo da
Fonseca. (WE-GT)

SALGAOCAR DOWN CHURCHILL: Adapting well to the wet Nehru Stadium, Fatorda,
Salgaocar Sports Club rode on goals by striker Lecto Calada and defender
Bello Rasaq to beat Coca Cola Churchill Brothers 2-0 in the GFA charity
match on August 14. (H)

SIOLIM PARISH YOUTH FOOTBALL: Nagoa-Arpora altar-boys defeated Moira altar
boys 1-0 to emerge victorious in the seven-a-side football tournament
organised by the Parish youth of Siolim, under the direction of Fr. Romeo
Godinho (animator), at Siolim Church ground this evening. The altar-boys,
coming from 27 parishes in North Goa, were welcomed by Fr. Jose Roque
Gonsalves (parish priest of Siolim) who gave a motivating talk on Vocation.
The Altar-boys, gave a lively, energetic and playful through out the
tournament. Fr. Eusico Pereira (Spiritual director of Saligao Seminary) was
the chief guest, guest of honour Alexyz (cartoonist), Mrs. Rosalia Barreto
(P.P.C. chairman), Fr. Herenencio de Souza (Assagao parish priest). Alexyz
said "keep scoring to be a good altar-boy, keep scoring to be a good
footballer, keep scoring in whatever you do". It was an enriching experience
for the altar boys from different parishes who met each other, exchanged
their views, lived the spirit of friendship and displayed their talents on a
common playground. ("priyanka fernandes" kimss4 at rediffmail.com)

CM TO WOO MUMBAI INDUSTRIALISTS: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has laid
out the red carpet in a bid to attract industrialists from Mumbai. "We are
ready to go to any lengths to solve the problems faced by industrialists if
they are coming to Goa," Parrikar told industry captains at a business meet
organised by CCI at Mumbai. (H)

.A JEWEL IN THE CROWN: A hundred and five days from now Goa will host the
International Film Festival of India from 29 November to 10 December. The
shabby-looking capital city with broken footpaths and dug-up roads would be
decked up to welcome artists and guests alike during the ten-day gala event.
The Goa government is sparing no efforts, money and infrastructure to turn
the host city into a paradise, of beauty and comfort by changing the very
look and feel of the ancient fishing village which now sports the crown of
being the 'numero uno' city of the ancient 'Govapuri'. (Jyoti Dhond in
WE-GT)

'BARRA DO SALAD': Urban Development Minister recently inaugurated "Barra do
Salad" at Sincro Hotel building, Fatorda. Barra do Salad, owned by Berrly
Mathew has opened a new concept in healthy eating. This outlet offers a
variety of 'negative calories food' - a novel concept which has been popular
among persons who are conscious about the food they eat. (WE-GT)

LADY BUS CONDUCTORS: And, now the private bus owners have announced plans to
recruit lady bus conductors. The Goa Bus Owner Association has made an
appeal to the private bus owners to employ women as bus conductors to bring
in discipline in the buses. The appeal comes in the wake of numerous
complaints that bus conductors behave in a rude manner with the passengers,
including students and senior citizens. (H)

HOW ABOUT A SAFE GOA FOR CHILDREN? Don't the police verify the antecedents
of foreigners who get in and out of the State (while they are so keen to
check out the antecedents of locals who may write/voice unsavoury stuff
about them). How do they let 'white skin' prostitution thrive in the seedy
motels of north Goa? There are enough Russians and Czech girls blatantly
soliciting eager-beaver at nightclubs. Not to mention the transvestite
population that gets into the State during peak season.Goa is a cesspool of
crime against women and children, because the settings are so perfect.
(Ethel da Costa in Herald Mirror)

UNITING GOANS ACROSS THE WORLD: Rene Barreto acknowledged as the Father of
World Goa Day, swings into action once again, exhorting Goans of the world
to celebrate being Goan. An UK-based Goan NRI proves that while you can take
the Goan out of Goa, it's not easy to take Goa out of the Goan. Non-Resident
Goans of all shapes, sizes and vintage jumped at his idea of a World Goa Day
in 2000. Resident Goans are lukewarm about a World Goa Day but a fever is
already building up among the Goan clubs in India and abroad. This is a day
to celebrate quintessential Goa - traditions, heritage, culture, cuisine,
music, literature, poetry - anything and everything that is truly Goan.
(Bevinda Collaco)

BOOK ON MHAMAIS: One more chapter was added to the scholarly pursuits of Dr
SK Mhamai, with the release of a new book "Mhamais of Goa in the network of
Trade and Culture". The book was released on August 14 by Shrinivas V Dempo,
who eulogized the efforts of Dr Mhamai. The book is supported financially by
Fundacao Oriente. (NT)

SIOLIM'S DALTON TO GET GALLANTRY AWARD: Group Captain Conrad Anthony Dalton,
VM, from Siolim, is poised to be the first Goan air force officer to be
bestowed with a gallantry award at the secretariat, Porvorim, today, on the
occasion of Independence Day. Dalton is one of the few Goan air force
officers in the country, having flown extensively for 24 years, logging an
impressive 6700 hours of accident free flying. He has flown in all
operational sectors of the country and has served tenures in Bomber,
Reconnaissance and Maritime strike and transport squadrons. He is the
son-in-law of famous artist and pioneer of Indian Christian Art, Angelo da

common playground. ("priyanka fernandes" kimss4 at rediffmail.com)

* Students of PCC protest against the increase in fees * Bus owners
oppose Government move of starting shuttle service in Curchorem.

INDEPENDENCE DAY GREETINGS: Governor SC Jamir, Chief Minister Parrikar and
Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao have extended warm greetings to the people of
Goa on the occasion of the 58th Independence Day. "We celebrate this solemn
occasion with profound sense of patriotism and national commitment. We
should be proud of the fact that ours is the biggest democracy in the world,
and, we have been able to make great strides in every field of life during
the last five and a half decades," Jamir said. (WE-GT)

ISIDORE STILL UNDECIDED: The crisis in the Congress camp over the reported
move by Poinguinim MLA Isidore Fernandes to quit the party does not seem to
have blown over as he is yet to take a firm decision in the matter. (WE-GT)

THIEVES BREAK INTO BANK: The Zambaulim branch of the State Bank of India was
broken into by thieves. However, the burglary attempt was unsuccessful as
the alarm went off just when the thieves broke open the lock of the front
door. (NT)

IMPATIENT BOAT OWNERS IGNORE BAN: A day before the High Court monitored ban
on fishing was to end on August 15, mechanized boats ventured out in the
Arabian sea from South Goa's fishing hub off Cutbona, netting tones of the
prized solar shrimp off the Goa coast. Around 100-odd fishing vessels left
the Cutbona jetty in the wee hours of Saturday. Vessels anchored at Vasco
also joined them and one could see a fleet of mechanized boats fishing close
to the coast. Reports indicate that the total catch of solar prawns unloaded
at the Cutbona fishing jetty was put at nearly 100 tonnes. (H)

BAINA BEACH ROCKS TO WESTERN MUSIC: Music played its role in literally
setting Baina free from the stigma of infamy that had soiled its beach.
Joining hands with Think Geek, an event management group, the Mormugao
Municipal Council led by its ebullient chairperson Milton Barreto, has taken
up the challenge of opening up Baina beach for entertainment activities
aimed at the benefit of the Vascoites. Coming as it did on the eve of the
Independence Day, the timing of the move could not have been more perfect.
The beach was thrown open to school children who were invited for a drawing
competition. It drew a massive response with children from Vasco flocking to
the venue and participating in the event. (WE-GT)

CHODAN BRIDGE ROUTES: The Chodan-Maddel panchayat has agreed to any of the
two proposed bridge routes shortlisted by the State government on he Mapusa
river, which would link the island with the mainland. (H)

GT BATTLE OF THE BANDS: We were amidst a barrage of music coming from some
of the best bands of Goa, at the Gomantak Times Battle of the Bands on
August 14 at Club Westend, Saligao. The campaign started with Mortal Sin,
Margao. Next were the Ice Cubes, followed Induz with lovely Vanessa singing
