Trafalgar man fined for stealing electricity

first_img 15 Views   no discussions Share LocalNews Trafalgar man fined for stealing electricity by: – March 21, 2014 Tweet Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! Share Albert Joseph, 63, of Trafalgar has been fined $700.00 for stealing electricity from the Dominica Electricity Services Limited (DOMLEC) over a three year period.Joseph, who resides in Fond-Canie, pleaded guilty to illegally abstracting 690 kilowatts of valued at $700.00 between October 9, 2011 and March 17, 2014, when he appeared before Magistrate Bernard Paquette on Friday, March 21, 2014.Information revealed in court by police prosecutor sergeant Constance Cuffy indicates that DOMLEC officials noticed that there was no recent electricity payment of the house and deployed senior technician Vincent Theophile to conduct a routine investigation on March 14, 2014.Upon arrival, Theophile noticed that the DOMLEC service line was partially put in the house under the roof’s eave.He also noticed that a single core 1.5mm single wire was connected to the DOMLEC electricity line but electricity used was not being recorded by the meter. He attempted to pull the utility line but it was held on the inside of the house by a piece of binding wire.Although he heard the sound of a radio or TV playing downstairs and called, there was no response from anyone.He therefore contacted Bernard Francis, supervisor of the technicians at DOMLEC to inform him of his findings. Francis subsequently reported the incident to the police and explained how Joseph extracted the electricity.“When I came to live there a year ago I met the whole place with power…even when the meter showing zero it still had electricity. When I pull the small wire all the power would go out. I spoke to the DOMLEC people they say they call the police already,” Joseph explained to the police.He was arrested and later gave a detailed record of how he was able to extract the electricity. Attorney at Law Ronald Charles who pleaded on his client’s behalf told the magistrate that his client is very remorseful for his actions. “He has embarrassed himself and his family and is sorry”. Charles added that his client is a family man with three children and begged the magistrate not to impose a custodial sentence.Magistrate Pacquette told Joseph that because of his age, his guilty plea and the fact that he has no previous convictions, he would not impose a custodial sentence on him.“You will pay the DOMLEC bill of $700.00 promptly in one week or in default spend one week in jail,” Magistrate Pacquette told the defendant.He was further fined $500.00 which he must pay within one month or in default of payment spend one week in jail.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Rapach Leads UWF Selections to GSC All-Decade Volleyball Team

first_img Share GSC All-Decade first team selection Luciana Rapach (Photo by Steven Neumann) BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The University of West Florida has developed into a regional and national power in Division II volleyball, and UWF had five of its former players honored on the Gulf South Conference All-Decade Team on Thursday.  Luciana Rapach, the first All-American in UWF volleyball history, was the Argonauts’ representative on the all-decade first team, and four other Argonauts earned second team recognition.“I am so pleased that GSC conference coaches and sports information directors honored these five young women from the UWF Volleyball program on the All-Decade team,” remarked head coach Melissa Wolter. “Each one of them clearly left their mark in our record books and played a key role in propelling our program to be a top DII program for the past 10 years.  I am so honored to have been able to be in the gym with each of these young women.” Rapach, a right side/setter for West Florida from 2007-08, was one of seven players selected to the all-decade team from the GSC East Division.  Outside hitter Naiara Fernandes (2000-03), setter Madeline Gonzalez (2007-08), and middle hitters Patricia Gandolfo (2008-09) and Kristy Krause (2000-03) were named to the second team. Rapach, a two-time All-American, led the Argos to a 24-0 conference mark during that span and the program’s first-ever GSC Championship in 2008. She is one of the most decorated UWF volleyball players, earning two consecutive All-GSC first team selections, two consecutive AVCA All-South Region first team awards, and being named the 2007 GSC East Player of the Year. She finished her career holding the single match dig record at UWF (30 digs vs. Lynn 9/12/08), and averaging 2.89 kills, 1.28 assists, 3.30 digs, and 0.63 blocks per set. Fernandes left her mark on the UWF volleyball record books during her two-year stint in 2005-06, holding the single season kill record with 568 in 2006. She also holds the school record for her 34 kills in a single match against Central Missouri at the 2006 NCAA Tournament, and was a five-time GSC Player of the Week. The two-time All-GSC first team selection ranks third in school history with 961 career kills in just two seasons, ranks seventh in digs (706) eighth in attack percentage (.222), and fourth in service aces (101). Gonzalez is among one of the best setters to run a UWF volleyball offense, earning AVCA All-American honorable mention in 2008. She spent 2007-08 under head coach Melissa Wolter, and teamed with Rapach during UWF’s back-to-back undefeated seasons in conference play. Gonzalez demolished the UWF assist record in her two years, currently holding the title with 2,296 total assists. She was named to both the AVCA All-South Region first team and the NCAA South Regional all-tournament team in 2008, and she was also a two-time All-GSC first team player. Krause spent her career at UWF during the 2000-03 seasons, earning two selections on All-GSC first team, along with an AVCA All-South Region honorable mention accolade as a senior in 2003. She is UWF’s all-time leader in kills (1,547), attack percentage (.316), and blocks (276). Krause hit .376 (505-118-1028) to set the program record for single season attack percentage in 2003. She averaged 4.36 kills, 2.57 digs, and 0.78 blocks per set in her four-year career, and was a three-time GSC Player of the Week.  Gandolfo rounds as the selections as the most recent graduate at UWF, spending the 2008-09 seasons with the Argos. An AVCA All-America selection as a senior in 2009, Gandolfo was seven times named the GSC Player of the Week during her career, becoming the first player in GSC history to win the Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week awards in the same week.  She was a two-time AVCA All-South Region selection, twice named to the All-GSC first team, and was the GSC Tournament Most Outstanding Player in 2009. Gandolfo ranks second in UWF history with a career .312 attack percentage, and she finished her career averaging 2.85 kills and 0.94 blocks per set. The Gulf South Conference will continue honoring its past with all-decade teams coming for men’s and women’s basketball on July 15 and five spring sports (baseball, men’s golf, softball, men’s tennis, women’s tennis) on July 22.  This initiative marks the first time that the GSC has compiled all-decade teams for sports other than football.  Previously, the GSC has recognized football all-star teams from the 1980s, the first quarter century, and the 1990s. Players could only be nominated for the all-decade team if they competed in at least two seasons during the decade and were also named to the All-GSC first team at least once.  Each squad was broken up into first and second Teams and players and coaches of the decade were selected.  Honorable mentions were also recognized in special circumstances; for example, those student-athletes that competed in just one season and were an All-GSC first team member during the past decade. For information on the Gulf South Conference, visit www.gulfsouthconference.org.  For information on all UWF Athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com.  OFFICIAL GSC RELEASE: http://www.gulfsouthconference.org/news.asp39action=form&recordID=471483&sport=MiscellaniousPrint Friendly Versioncenter_img Rapach Leads UWF Selections to GSC All-Decade Volleyball Teamlast_img read more
