VELSAO FISHERMEN NET SOLAR SHRIMP: Wednesday's (July 14) bright sunny
weather brought a fleet of outstation fish transporting trucks to the
Velsao coast as traditional fishermen netted tonnes of the prized Solar
shrimp throughout the day. Going by rough estimates, more than 10-15
tonnes of solar shrimp was caught at Velsao, worth over Rs.1 lakh. A
kilogram of Solar commanded a wholesale rate of Rs.55 to Rs.60, a
wholesaler said. (H)

REMAINING CUBICLES AT BAINA: The Mormugao Municipal Council has started
the process of serving eviction notices to the occupants of rest of the
cubicles at Baina red-light area. (NT)

BOAT OWNERS OPPOSE: Taking strong objections to fishing activities carried
out by motorised canoes off Goa coast, the Goa Fishing Boat Owners
Association has called a meeting on July 19 at 9.30 am at the
Association's office in Vasco. (H)

TENSION OVER CREMATION: Tension prevailed in Vaddy, Siolim, on July 14
morning over the issue of the final rites of a villager in a crematorium
on a plot of land belonging to several individuals. (GT)

GOVERNOR TO BE SWORN IN: The swearing-in ceremony of SC Jamir, as Goa
governor, will be held at Raj Bhavan, Dona Paula, at 10.30 am on 17 July.
Jamir, accompanied by his wife Alemla Jamir, is arriving by the Sahara
flight via Mumbai from Delhi today. (GT)

MALA VANDALISM: RIOTING CASE: The Panjim police have registered a case of
rioting and damage to property in connection with the incident of
vandalism at Mala-Fontainhas on June 18. This was following a complaint
filed by Jack Sukhija of Panjim Inn. (H)

SC NOTICE TO CENTRE: The Supreme Court today (July 14) issued notices to
the Centre while admitting a petition challenging the removal of four
governors before expiry of their tenure. (NT)

BEREAVEMENT SERVICE: The Sangath Centre at Alto Porvorim has set up the
Sangath Bereavement Service called Cope with Hope. This service offers
support in terms of counseling those who have lost someone close (through
death) and are finding it difficult to cope with the grief. The service is
available in North as well as South Goa. (GT)

STRIKING A BALANCE: The village of Cortalim is home to some 14,000 people
and is divided into 11 small wards. Traditionally regarded as an
agricultural village, things are a little bit different today with the
benefits of economic and social progress reaching a wider section of the
population. The ambit of the middle class has broadened to some extent
with the increasing factories in the village atop the plateau. (Roque Dias
in NT)

THANK YOU, CHIEF MINISTER: Congratulations and thank you Mr Chief
Minister. After years of deliberations, criticism and objections, the
government has shown some spine in finally putting its foot down on rave
parties on Goa's beaches. No doubt this will case a lot of anguish among
many hoteliers and tourists but this is a step in the right direction.
(Edit in Herald)

RAVING AND RANTING: If Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar actually manages to
halt the raves in North Goa this party season, he may well have to hear
the rants, not only from the tourists but also from politicians both in
his party and in the opposition. For long, successive governments have
tried unsuccessfully to control, temper and halt the rave parties in the
north Goa beaches of Anjuna, Vagator and Morjim. (Edit in GT)

`I WRITE IN ENGLISH, BUT THINK IN KONKANI`: Most of the time what I talk
in English is a direct translation from what I think in Konkani. In this
sense my literature is quite different from say Canadian or African
literature. But as one keeps writing, he slowly grasps writings in other
mediums. (Lino Leitao in an interview in GT)

GOA'S FIRST TEST TUBE TWINS: On July 14, Goa's first set of twin test-tube
babies was born to a couple (Parab) who had been trying to have children
for over 14 years. Although this is the first set of twins born in Goa
through in-vitro fertilisation, there are five more sets of twins and one
set of triplets in the pipeline, says Dr Jayshri Padte. (H)

VELSAO FISHERMEN NET SOLAR SHRIMP: Wednesday's (July 14) bright sunny
weather brought a fleet of outstation fish transporting trucks to the
Velsao coast as traditional fishermen netted tonnes of the prized Solar
shrimp throughout the day. Going by rough estimates, more than 10-15
tonnes of solar shrimp was caught at Velsao, worth over Rs.1 lakh. A
kilogram of Solar commanded a wholesale rate of Rs.55 to Rs.60, a
wholesaler said. (H)

REMAINING CUBICLES AT BAINA: The Mormugao Municipal Council has started
the process of serving eviction notices to the occupants of rest of the
cubicles at Baina red-light area. (NT)

BOAT OWNERS OPPOSE: Taking strong objections to fishing activities carried
out by motorised canoes off Goa coast, the Goa Fishing Boat Owners
Association has called a meeting on July 19 at 9.30 am at the
Association's office in Vasco. (H)

TENSION OVER CREMATION: Tension prevailed in Vaddy, Siolim, on July 14
morning over the issue of the final rites of a villager in a crematorium
on a plot of land belonging to several individuals. (GT)

GOVERNOR TO BE SWORN IN: The swearing-in ceremony of SC Jamir, as Goa
governor, will be held at Raj Bhavan, Dona Paula, at 10.30 am on 17 July.
Jamir, accompanied by his wife Alemla Jamir, is arriving by the Sahara
flight via Mumbai from Delhi today. (GT)

MALA VANDALISM: RIOTING CASE: The Panjim police have registered a case of
rioting and damage to property in connection with the incident of
vandalism at Mala-Fontainhas on June 18. This was following a complaint
filed by Jack Sukhija of Panjim Inn. (H)

SC NOTICE TO CENTRE: The Supreme Court today (July 14) issued notices to

STRIKING A BALANCE: The village of Cortalim is home to some 14,000 people
and is divided into 11 small wards. Traditionally regarded as an
agricultural village, things are a little bit different today with the
benefits of economic and social progress reaching a wider section of the
population. The ambit of the middle class has broadened to some extent
with the increasing factories in the village atop the plateau. (Roque Dias
in NT)

THANK YOU, CHIEF MINISTER: Congratulations and thank you Mr Chief
Minister. After years of deliberations, criticism and objections, the
government has shown some spine in finally putting its foot down on rave
parties on Goa's beaches. No doubt this will case a lot of anguish among
many hoteliers and tourists but this is a step in the right direction.
(Edit in Herald)

RAVING AND RANTING: If Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar actually manages to
halt the raves in North Goa this party season, he may well have to hear
the rants, not only from the tourists but also from politicians both in
his party and in the opposition. For long, successive governments have
tried unsuccessfully to control, temper and halt the rave parties in the
north Goa beaches of Anjuna, Vagator and Morjim. (Edit in GT)

`I WRITE IN ENGLISH, BUT THINK IN KONKANI`: Most of the time what I talk
in English is a direct translation from what I think in Konkani. In this
sense my literature is quite different from say Canadian or African
literature. But as one keeps writing, he slowly grasps writings in other
mediums. (Lino Leitao in an interview in GT)

GOA'S FIRST TEST TUBE TWINS: On July 14, Goa's first set of twin test-tube
babies was born to a couple (Parab) who had been trying to have children

support in terms of counseling those who have lost someone close (through
death) and are finding it difficult to cope with the grief. The service is
available in North as well as South Goa. (GT)

STRIKING A BALANCE: The village of Cortalim is home to some 14,000 people
and is divided into 11 small wards. Traditionally regarded as an
agricultural village, things are a little bit different today with the
benefits of economic and social progress reaching a wider section of the
population. The ambit of the middle class has broadened to some extent
with the increasing factories in the village atop the plateau. (Roque Dias
in NT)

THANK YOU, CHIEF MINISTER: Congratulations and thank you Mr Chief
Minister. After years of deliberations, criticism and objections, the
government has shown some spine in finally putting its foot down on rave
parties on Goa's beaches. No doubt this will case a lot of anguish among
many hoteliers and tourists but this is a step in the right direction.

RAVING AND RANTING: If Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar actually manages to
halt the raves in North Goa this party season, he may well have to hear
the rants, not only from the tourists but also from politicians both in
his party and in the opposition. For long, successive governments have
tried unsuccessfully to control, temper and halt the rave parties in the
north Goa beaches of Anjuna, Vagator and Morjim. (Edit in GT)

`I WRITE IN ENGLISH, BUT THINK IN KONKANI`: Most of the time what I talk
in English is a direct translation from what I think in Konkani. In this
sense my literature is quite different from say Canadian or African
literature. But as one keeps writing, he slowly grasps writings in other
mediums. (Lino Leitao in an interview in GT)

GOA'S FIRST TEST TUBE TWINS: On July 14, Goa's first set of twin test-tube
babies was born to a couple (Parab) who had been trying to have children
for over 14 years. Although this is the first set of twins born in Goa
through in-vitro fertilisation, there are five more sets of twins and one
set of triplets in the pipeline, says Dr Jayshri Padte. (H)
