It has been the norm for the Government of T&T, and no matter what political party is in power, to appoint members to the board of Caribbean Airlines who have no experience in aviation and, most importantly, have no experience in turning around distressed companies.

I believe one exception would have been the Arthur Lok Jack-led board and CEO...

I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Women’s Clinic in the St James Medical Complex for their dedication and commitment to their jobs.

I wish to recognise the work done by the North Carolina Chapter Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity International and the Rotary Club Penal.

Diabetes and uncorrected eye problems are the primary causes of vision loss in rural communities.

I read in the newspapers the article about the low attendance at the Dimanche Gras shows on Carnival Sunday nights. I myself use to look forward to viewing it on television as I stopped going to the live show but the quality has really dropped.

Many of us, like former minister, Mariano Brown, feel that the Government dropped the ball when they caved in and awarded an interim five per cent wage increase to Petrotrin workers.

The last thing that football supporters want to hear are perceived excuses for their team not qualifying or winning a tournament, but it must be brought to the attention of all that the Caribbean Football Union must be taken to task for their ridiculous plan at the recent CFU Gold Cup Qualifying...

Princes Town, as everybody knows, is like a waist 50 Japanese Sumo wrestler trying to fit into a size 30 jeans. This analogy, however, is too sophisticated for the people to whom this letter is intended.

Many wrote in last week’s T&T Guardian about the food we eat.

Growing our own food is to be encouraged as the local produce is much better than processed, chemically-sprayed imported foods.

We do have a choice in any given situation which for some reason is not giving us the expected results. I am using Petrotrin as an example; we are all knowledgeable of the position of this strategic company in our nation.

The passage of legislation to have referenda as part of our system would have avoided much wastage of time being spent debating the proposed changes on child marriage.

This has been promised by the last government and for over five years they did not even bring it to Parliament.

The Energy Chamber produced a survey which attempted to suggest to the public that the salary of Petrotrin workers is above T&T’s industry standards. However, this report does nothing more than raise several fundamental questions about how workers are viewed and treated in T&T.

The airbridge is once again on the front burner. It is reported that two of the ATR aircraft are out of service and that the parent company has loaned CAL one to assist in alleviating this shortfall.

I am encouraged by the Prime Minister’s speech regarding Petrotrin where he stated that Wendell Mottley was among others who will advise Cabinet on the Petrotrin matter. It is good to see that divestment is an option.

It is becoming clear that the entire Keith Diaz-led executive of Pan Trinbago should resign over their alleged mismanagement of the institution’s finances.

We do not need the binomial theorm to calculate one minus one. The answer is zero. Plain, simple and straight forward.

We failed to qualify for the Gold Cup because we were beaten by better-prepared, disciplined teams. No further maths required.
