The Telegram

The Telegram website offers only a sample of the stories our reporters, editors and photographers work hard to get to the public every day.

Thursday’s full edition of The Telegram, on the other hand, contains much, much more, from news to opinion to our expanded Business section.


• A man wanted in the United States was a teacher at the College of the North Atlantic until his arrest at the Maine border April 2.

Peter Omagbemi taught mechanical and petroleum engineering at the Ridge Road campus in St. John’s before being picked up by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Service.

He has been a fugitive since 2009, when he was indicted for 17 counts of mail and wire fraud.


• Six companies involved in the construction of the Riverhead regional wastewater plant in St. John’s are pointing fingers at each other for defective work discovered in two concrete tanks.

The City of St. John’s filed a statement of claim in July 2012 after the gas proof coating that lines the inside of the two tanks failed and began to peel off the concrete. The coating is supposed to protect the concrete from deterioration due to sewage gas.

Work to fix the second tank wrapped up last week at a cost to the city of $2.4 million.


• Accused murderer Trevor Pardy has found a private lawyer who may be willing to be paid at legal aid rates.

But just who it is and whether that counsel will agree to take on Pardy’s case won’t be known until later this month.
