The stands exploded in a stir that alerted the doctors of both teams. Lam (Lega) and Oyola (Geta) left the benches, forgot about the game and became important. There was a life to save. They flew in a blink until they reached Floro’s seat. He was assisted, revived and maintained until Rafa, a doctor from Samur, practiced CPR with which he returned from death. Floro went in critical condition to the Severo Ochoa hospital in Leganés, where they completed the task. They stabilized him and kept him healthy. Shortly after the club paid tribute.Today, in the outskirts of Butarque Floro’s blue eyes looked for Oyola to thank him for that. And assisted by Ace, they met again when the blue team member was about to enter the stadium. “Thank you doctor,” Floro muttered excitedly with his eyes fixed on the doctor. And there it was Oyola’s smile that came alive. Florencio Hernández (Floro for his friends, who are many) is 56 years old and has two blue eyes that sparkle life. In the last Leganés – Getafe played in Butarque he was close to losing it. That night of December 7, 2018, his cucumber heart, cracked by inherited genetic problems, shot up. It was not the excitement of the game, but a rogue arrhythmia that almost killed him. First the pulsations fired up to 280 beats per minute. Then he stopped. His brother José, also affected by the same problems, was the first to alert what happened. Sitting next to him, he shouted in a desperate howl. The worst was feared.
Donegal County Council is facing punishment from the Government in the form of cuts to services over non-payment of the household charge, according to Donegal North East Fianna Fáil TD Charlie McConalogue.This is the latest attempt by the Government to shift blame for their failure on the household charge fiasco, he said.Deputy McConalogue commented, “At the weekend, we saw Government Ministers trying to shift blame onto local authority workers in Donegal and across the country for the mess that Phil Hogan has created over the household charge. “Now it is reported that Minister Hogan will punish those areas where the household charge has not been successfully collected, by cutting local services to the entire community. “Let us be clear, this fiasco is not the fault of local authority workers in Donegal or anywhere else. This is entirely Phil Hogan and the Government’s fault. They made a mess of this from the beginning by forcing a flat-rate charge on people regardless of their ability to pay, by failing to provide the proper information to the public, by failing to allow people to pay in a variety of ways including in their local post office, and by failing to give people enough time to pay by instalment. “Now in order to save face, the Government wants to blame ordinary council workers and to threaten cuts to local services. This demonstrates just how disconnected this Government has become from the experience of many families in a very short period of time. What Fine Gael and Labour should be doing is putting their hands up, admitting that they made a mistake, and extending the deadline to the end of the September. That gives them time to run a proper information campaign, allow people to pay in a variety of ways and to offer an option of paying by instalment. “I am asking Minister Dinny McGinley, Deputy Joe McHugh and Senator Jimmy Harte if they stand by their colleagues’ claims that gaps in household charge payments locally are the fault of Donegal County Council workers, and not the Government? I also want them to clarify their position on Minister Hogan’s plans to cut to local services in Donegal if they Government has not succeeded in collecting the household charge from all homes in Donegal.” MCCONALOGUE SLAMS GOVERNMENT OVER HOUSEHOLD CHARGE DEBACLE was last modified: April 2nd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County CouncilHOUSEHOLD CHARGE
