VERNON State Police charged an Vernon man with driving while intoxicated after he fled the scene of a car/dog collision in the Town of Vernon Wednesday.
Trooper Terry J. Horton responded to Graves Road in the Town of Vernon at approximately 5:45 p.m. Wednesday evening to investigate a hit and run car / dog accident which had recently occurred.
Trooper Horton interviewed the Graves Road resident who advised she was walking along the shoulder of the roadway with her dog when a car approached her location. The woman stated she waved her arms to try and get the vehicle to slow down and to warn it of the dog walking with her. However, the vehicle struck the dog and continued on without stopping. The dog was deceased at the scene.
The woman then followed the vehicle in her own car and located it in a driveway, also on Graves Road. The woman confronted the driver, identified as Micah B. Wilson, 39, and she contacted 911 to report the incident.While interviewing Wilson, Trooper Horton determined that he was intoxicated. Further investigation revealed evidence of the collision with the dog on the passenger side of Wilson s 2003 Cadillac Seville. Wilson was taken into custody for DWI and transported to SP Oneida for processing.
Wilson refused to submit to a chemical test and was charged with DWI and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury to an animal.
Wilson was arraigned before Town of Vernon Justice William Croll and remanded to Oneida County Jail in lieu of $500 cash or $1,000 bond and is scheduled to reappear in Vernon court on Nov. 13. 10-14-13

CHITTAGONG, Sept 7: Businesses in the country under the existing import rules are paying significantly high freight charges to various foreign shipping companies and foreign freight forwarders for importing goods as per the cost of freight (CFR) terms, because, the charges are payable along with the cost of goods under a single L/C (letter of credit).
In last 10 years the local importers, exporters and buyers paid about $ 95.0 billion against their imports and exports as freight and related charges to the shipping companies, air lines and freight operators apart from other freight-related costs such as demurrage, detention and related ancillary costs, said owners of ocean-going ships as per the CFR terms.
Bangladesh Shipping Agents Association (BSAA) and Bangladesh Freight Forwarders Association (BFFA) leaders said the central bank and other concerned authorities should review the existing import rules and take appropriate steps to change the import terms.
Secretary General of Bangladesh Oceangoing Ship Owners Association SM Mahfuzul Huq said: “The existing CFR terms on imports should be changed in the greater national interest, because our buying terms do not permit us to verify or assess the level of freight charges payable by suppliers to shipping lines or freight operators as it is not shown separately in the L/C or proforma invoice or indent, though we the buyers are paying the cost of goods and freights under single L/Cs.”
Garment exporters and trade body leaders, however, vehemently opposed the proposal. Former BGMEA Vice President Nasir Uddin Chowdhury argued that the proposal was not in conformity with the practical scenario in the garment sector, because the exporters would face great losses as local freight forwarders and oceangoing ships could not achieve the adequate capacity yet.
Mahfuzul Huq told the FE Friday that he had submitted the proposal to the Bangladesh Bank and had discussions with Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith, BB Governor Dr Atiur Rahman and BB Adviser Allah Malik Kazmi who gave similar opinions.
Giving statistics, he said that the total projected imports and exports over the next 10 years-both CFR imports and freight on board (FOB) exports-would be around $ 1445 billion while the projected freight value would be $ 435 billion.
So the Bangladesh Bank should allow imports on the FOB basis without the importers having to obtain prior permission. In this case two letters of credit (L/Cs) would be opened, one for goods and the other for freights, he stated.
“In order to keep $ 400 billion back in the country over the next 10 years Bangladesh must allow local shipping companies and freight operators to establish freight services including container liner services to carry goods to and from Bangladesh using our own and chartered ships and freighters,” he said.

ISUZU Philippines Corporation (IPC) has presented in Cebu the newest additions to the company s medium-duty truck lines and a host of its unique transportation solutions at the 2013 Isuzu Truck Fest Cebu, successfully held from July 18 to 20 at SM City Cebu.
Launched at the show were the Isuzu Forward FRR and FVM models, which had been previously showcased at the 2013 Truck Fest in Pasay City1 from 20 to 22 June. The two vehicles are expected to bolster IPC s leadership in the medium-duty truck segment.
The 2013 Isuzu Truck Fest Cebu serves to point out the important role that buyers from outside the National Capital Region, especially those in the Visayas, play in making Isuzu trucks one of the bestsellers in the Philippines, said IPC President Nobuo Izumina.
He added, In the Visayas and Mindanao, Isuzu has firmly established a stronghold, and our latest figures show that 22% of our sales nationwide come from Visayas and Mindanao. From that, Cebu accounts for an impressive 33% share. For this reason, we consider it our duty to bring our very best product offerings to the Isuzu Truck Fest Cebu.
Isuzu trucks in the Visayas and Mindanao are presently serving the needs of small- to medium-scale entrepreneurs, multinational companies, and even government agencies, among others. In the Visayas, Isuzu has dealerships in Bacolod, Iloilo and Mandaue City. In Mindanao, Isuzu dealerships are located in Cagayan De Oro, Davao and General Santos.
During the show, a special deal was offered to customers who purchase any truck variant from July 18 up to August 31, 2013, which consists of free LTO registration and P20,000 worth of Caltex fuel cards.
Along with the newly introduced Forward FRR and FVM, also serving as crowd drawers at the Cebu edition of the 2013 Truck Fest were a lineup of Isuzu trucks that came in various body configurations, highlighting the models potential in numerous business and service applications. Displayed were an NKR cab and chassis, NHR Passenger Van with air-conditioning, CYZ cab and chassis, NQR refrigerated van, NKR with a stake body, NPR aerial platform, and even an Isuzu marine engine.
Through the displays and various activities at the 2013 Isuzu Truck Fest, we were able to stress to show visitors the advantages of buying brand-new trucks. In this regard, Isuzu trucks, which are widely reputed to be durable and reliable, are presented as especially ideal as livelihood and logistics partners, Izumina said.

The injured businessman, Cecil Albert Gajadhar, after having the bullet removed from his face
Businessman Cecil Albert Gajadhar who was shot to the face by gunmen during a brazen robbery on Monday at Water Street, Kingston, is convinced that the attack, which resulted in the death of his handyman, was a set up.
On his hospital bed, the 71-year-old Foulis, East Coast Demerara resident related to this publication what transpired on the fateful day.
According to the owner of Gajadhar Service Station, he and his handyman left home at 7:45am on Monday to transact business at one of the city s banks when he came under attack.
I would normally take the Water Street route because there are no (traffic) lights there. When we reach on Young Street (Kingston), I see a car driving slow in front of us and we couldn t pass it. The driver was driving strange and his number plate was unusual, but I didn t give it much thought, the injured man recalled.
The businessman explained that the car drove all the way to Cowan Street, Kingston, with him (Gajadhar) driving behind with no clue as to what was about to happen.
The driver of the car put on his trafficator, indicating that he was turning south onto Water Street, the exact route I was taking, and I followed him without giving it a thought. I remember while driving I tell Victor (the now dead Victor Da Silva) that if that driver commit a crime, the police won t catch him, because nobody can really see the number plate, the man said.
Gajadhar said although the car was driving slowly in front of his CRV Honda, he didn t suspect anything until he reached at the Kingston koker.
When I reach at the koker, the driver of the car stopped and then all I hear is gunshots. I don t know how many shooters were there, but I remember seeing one at the side of my vehicle shooting, the businessman recounted.
He explained that as soon as he heard the gunshots and was convinced that he was under attack, he tried to overtake the parked car, but failed.
I tried to drive at the side, but cars block me, I tried to reverse and cars blocked me, too sheer taxis.
He could not say how many cars blocked him but noted that his money, more than $8M in cash, was in his trunk, but he does not recall when the gunmen entered his vehicle and took the cash.
I don t know how they got the money, the car was locked, and the shooting lasted for less than two minutes. We didn t have time to shout for help and we didn t have time to duck from the bullets, the businessman said.
Dead: Victor Da Silva
He explained that after the shooters left the scene, he turned to his handyman.
I hold him and I shake him up and I say Vick, Vick stay with me but there was no response and I figured that he was dead.
According to Gajadhar, after he confirmed that Da Silva was dead, he immediately drove to the bank, I thought that the money was still in the car that is why I drove to the bank. After the gunmen left, I back out, I made a right and a left into Cowan Street (Kingston) with blood gushing down my face.
Gajadhar told Kaieteur News that with the blood pouring down his face, he could have barely seen where he was driving.
I blow my horn and drive and when I reach to the bank and realize that the money wasn t in the trunk I start calling 911, but nobody answered.
If I knew the money was gone I woulda drive straight to the Police Station or the hospital.
Presently, the 71-year-old is hospitalized in a stable condition. The bullet has been removed from the right side of his face, but he is being kept in the hospital for observation.
On November 19, 2011, the businessman, his wife and Da Silva were attacked and robbed at gunpoint by three armed men. Da Silva was beaten and the gunmen managed to escape with more than $5.5M in cash.
On March 26, last, Gajadar was again attacked, but on that occasion, police managed to catch his attacker before he escaped and the businessman retrieved his $4.5M. The attack occurred in front the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) on Camp Street.
When asked if he will continue his business despite being robbed so many times, the injured and bold Gajadhar said yes, definitely, you cannot allow people to change your mind.

The number of people killed each year in large truck crashes has fallen by almost 30%, from 5,282 in 2000 to less than 4,000 in 2011, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This isn t the trucking world of old, said Bryan Spoon, 40, a third-generation trucker who has been driving full-time since 2000. When the lay person who doesn t work within the industry thinks of trucking they think of Smokey and the Bandit. That s just not the way it works. We run safe, we run compliant.
Well, it s not good enough for government bureaucrats at the Department of Transportation and the Obama administration who are imposing new rules forcing truck drivers like Bryan Spoon to take longer breaks and cut back on their hours behind the wheel. Starting today, drivers like Spooner will face new federally-mandated work rules that require taking a 30-minute break in the first eight hours of driving, cutting the maximum workweek from 82 hours to 70, and restarting those 70 hours with a 34-hour break once a week. The trucking industry is suing to have the rules reversed and warns that they will result in more highway traffic and higher shipping costs for consumers.
Seems like another good example of Thomas Sowell s insight above we might be replacing what is working with what sounds good again.

Kerry Asia Road Transport (KART) has launched a new scheduled twice-weekly trucking service connecting Shenzhen and Hanoi, through its ASEAN-China road network.
There are emerging trade channels developing between China and ASEAN countries and KART s Less-than-Truckload (LTL) service will initially connect the industrial cities in southern China and northern Vietnam, providing shippers and 3PLs with a fixed-day
dedicated service. KART will look to expand this service to other city pairs in the future.
It is very exciting that there are new industrial and commercial centres developing along the road network connecting ASEAN and China and we are forecasting significant growth and additional city-to-city services in the future, said Alex Ng, General Manager of KART.
There is demand from shippers for a service that matches airfreight for transit time and is more cost effective. By road we can deliver to the heart of Hanoi and Shenzhen which is much quicker than by ocean.
Shippers want schedule integrity and the city-to-city direct service means we are able to manage our customers supply chains more effectively, improving efficiency, reducing inventory and delivering just-in-time, he added. The new service will depart Shenzhen for Hanoi on Tuesday and Thursday and Hanoi to Shenzhen on Wednesday and Friday. KART has also extended its door-to-door connectivity in China and Vietnam through its domestic courier services, ensuring expedited delivery throughout both countries.
As SGS TAPA-TSR certified, KART s containers are equipped with security features such as GPS tracking and on-board CCTV.
KART is an ASEAN-wide road transportation service that connects China (Shanghai, Shenzhen, Kunming) to ASEAN countries (Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore).
