the lake, came up for hearing on Wednesday. (H)

with
the 'dead dog' problem. (NT)

BEFORE THE SKY BUS ARRIVES: Goa does not need sky buses and film festival

Mandovi bridge (the one-way bridge) which was tarred just recently has
already been washed away partly resulting in potholes. Panjim also badly

BEFORE THE SKY BUS ARRIVES: Goa does not need sky buses and film festival
venues that urgently. The KTC terminal needs to be given a better look

quite a filthy place to enter. The area of the road at the starting of the
Mandovi bridge (the one-way bridge) which was tarred just recently has

SHIFTING OF MARGAO'S FISH MARKET: If anything, the shifting of the wholesale
fish activity to the new premises next month promises to not only reduce
stink pervading the SGPDA market complex but also put a stop to the practice
of vending fish outside the sheds too. (H)

LICENCES OF DRUNKEN DRIVERS: Even though orders were issued recommending

days. A statement to this effect was made by the government when the suo
moto petition from a report, which appeared in the Herald about the state
of
the lake, came up for hearing on Wednesday. (H)
LAD DIES OF DROWNING: Sanjay Sonu Parab, 28, from Gaonkarwada, in Bicholim
met with a watery grave on Sunday at a lake in Vaishim, Bicholim. The body
of the deceased was found floating the next day by his neighbours. (GT)

committed suicide by jumping into a well yesterday. (GT)
COASTAL AREAS FOR WATER SPORTS: The Panjim Bench of the Bombay High Court
has directed the government to identify within three months the areas along
the Goa coast where water sports activities could be carried out. It has
also directed that any such activity should be done in strict compliance
with the guidelines notified by the government on June 23, 2003, under the
rules under the Goa Tourist Places (Maintenance and Protection) Act 2001.
(H)
SCRAPYARDS MUSHROOMING IN MAPUSA: Chandravado in Fatorda and Navelim area
tops the list of illegal scrapyards mushrooming in the Margao Municipal
Council jurisdiction. The list available with the Salcete Mamlatdar

wrongly, no doctor can cure us and if we eat rightly, no doctor is needed".
Dr Dhume was addressing the gathering on balanced diet at the function
organised at Shripad Karekar Memorial Hall, Khorlim, by Mapusa Utkarsh
Mandal on Sunday. (GT)
CRACK ON LATE MOVIE BROADCASTERS: Hundreds of eager-eyed late-night channel
surfers may have to sleep disappointed after July 15, with the Goa Police
declaring their intentions in cracking down on broadcasting of blue films
and pirated copies of new films. (H)
DEAD DOG MENACE: The Margao Municipal Council seems to have been dogged
with
the 'dead dog' problem. (NT)
PAY CLINICS: The State government is contemplating on a novel idea of
allowing Goa Medical College doctors to run pay clinics in the complex
itself. The proposal is at an advanced stage and the government is in the
process of consulting the doctors. (H)
PORTUGAL MINISTER DECLINES TO COMMENT ON SALEM EPISODE: Jose de Almeida
Cesario, Portugal's Minister of State for Portuguese communities, yesterday
offered no comments on reports that underworld don, Abu Salem, currently in
detention in his country, had had his travel documents processed through
the

Portuguese nationality papers processed through manipulations from their
former territories of Daman and Diu. (H)
DENTAL IMPLANT SERVICES: Vrundavan Hospital, Mapusa, formally launched its

MISCARRIAGE AFTER ASSAULT: A 19-year-old girl, Sainaz Sheikh, had a
miscarriage after she was assaulted by her brother and three others at the
Housing Board, New Vaddem, Vasco. Sainaz had married one Shekappa about
three months ago against the wishes of her parents. (H)
BEFORE THE SKY BUS ARRIVES: Goa does not need sky buses and film festival
venues that urgently. The KTC terminal needs to be given a better look
first. The Panjim bus stand is a pitiful sight, full of big pot holes and
quite a filthy place to enter. The area of the road at the starting of the
Mandovi bridge (the one-way bridge) which was tarred just recently has
already been washed away partly resulting in potholes. Panjim also badly
needs proper parking areas. CM Parrikar should look into these smaller
problems before venturing into bigger affairs, which will start another
bunch of problems when those get started. (Luiza de Mello, Saligao)
ARRESTED FOR ABDUCTING: Margao police yesterday arrested one Boney Pinto on
the allegations that he abducted an 18-year-0ld girl from Canacona. He was

gathered in large numbers to express solidarity and unity in protecting and
preserving prime Comunidade property and went ahead by holding a meeting to
discuss the agenda despite the court's restraining order canceling the
meeting. (GT)
SHIFTING OF MARGAO'S FISH MARKET: If anything, the shifting of the
wholesale
fish activity to the new premises next month promises to not only reduce
stink pervading the SGPDA market complex but also put a stop to the
practice
of vending fish outside the sheds too. (H)
LICENCES OF DRUNKEN DRIVERS: Even though orders were issued recommending
suspension of driving licences of as many as 224 motorists and
motorcyclists
by the traffic cell of the Goa police, very few of them were acted upon by
the Transport department, which is the licence issuing authority. It is
learnt hat many of them were 'habitual drunken drivers, drug addicts and
rash drivers', who were found seriously violating traffic rules during the
last 6 months. (NT)

sold 5,000 copies online before it even hit the bookshelves. Since the age
of 16, he has been an intelligence consultant to the US government
intelligence agency. (H)
FOOTING IN THE RAIN: Over the last 44 years, the GFA has nurtured the game
to where Goan footballers can challenge the best in the country. Albert
Colaco, first on the Goan stage and now national scene, has done miracles.
Zealous men (and women) like him have shaped the destiny of various
division
and age group tournaments. However, the Youth Development Programme, "a
decade-old weapon in our armoury, through which talent is spotted at the
school level, has sadly remained nascent. (Edit in GT)

exhibition on "Value Education: Changing the Face of Goa" at the art
gallery
