Three distinct incidents over the past week have converged to give us perhaps what can be easily described as a “sociological analysis” of our lovely yet distorted view of our priorities. 
1) The arrest of Mr Azmon Alexander, the prime suspect in the murders of members of a Brasso Seco family
2) The decision of the Ferguson grand jury and the...

My name is Shereen Boodhai and I am a member of the Highway Re-Route Movement. After reading a Newsday article, I realised that there is still confusion regarding the Highway Re-Route Movement and what they are about.

Will you allow the destruction of an already endangered World Heritage Site that is possibly older than the Mayan and Aztec civilizations? Yes, I am referring to the Banwari site in Penal, Trinidad.

There have been calls to cancel Carnival 2015 because of the Ebola threat. Carnival will be on February 16 and 17. I do not subscribe to this school of thought. Proper precautions can help us manage this disease. Knowledge is power. Ebola viral disease is a severe, often fatal illness.

In all the talk about preparations to deal with the threat of the Ebola virus nothing has as yet been mentioned about the virus arriving via the legal yachting community and the numerous illegal small craft off loading various drugs, guns and human traffic. The ministers of Health and National Se

I would like to suggest that the Government establish a fund from which each bandleader can be reimbursed the financial cost incurred if Carnival is cancelled. They can use the money to settle any and all liabilities to date. 

Even if feters, artistes, masqueraders, vendors and spectators were dropping like chemically sprayed flies, the mass of stupid people that comprise this nation of T&T would demand that the 2015 Carnival sex orgy go on as scheduled. 

The New York and Canada-based family of Dr Sylvia Moodie-Kublalsingh would like to express our full support for her call for reason to prevail in the matter of Wayne Kublalsingh’s hunger strike.

“What is life worth living?” Ernest Hemingway said, “The world breaks everyone…those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.”  This quote came to my mind as I reflected on the impending fate of Dr Kublalsingh.

Your citizens living in the USA  who are heading to join Isis are of “concern” and “interest” to you.  What concerns many of your citizens living in T&T, however, is the fact that you will not mediate between the Prime Minister and  a citizen sitting right outside her office every day.  

I sincerely ask that our Prime Minister look with compassion and understanding on Dr Kublalsingh’s request for an urgent meeting with her on the  highway. I am a descendant of Elise Mondesir (my great-grandmother) and the Prime Minister may know my relatives the Saneys, Newallos and Leibas from S

Citizens are usually sceptical about politicians and their pronouncements. Consequently, it is not uncommon for politicians in and out of government to stretch the truth a bit for political mileage.

Dear Wayne, 

As you enter day 26 of your historic and noble fast, your neighbours and fellow residents of La Florissante, D’Abadie, and environs for over 30 years, would just like to publicly let you know that we love and care about you dearly.

Fellow Trinbagonians, your nation is facing a dire crisis and needs you now. We have a lot to be proud of but at this time we are on the brink of being shamed globally. 

An official of the Ministry of Health is reported to have indicated that T&T is “70 per cent ready” with respect to the threat from the Ebola virus.

Mr Griffith is certainly supplementing the belief that this is a lawless country similar to the Wild West in bygone days, by introducing bounties for information on the whereabouts of lawless citizens. Rewards are a good idea but why wasn’t it introduced before to try to bring criminals the justi
