As a huge student of the game of cricket who read every book on its history and all playing aspects of the game at the Public Library in the sixties, and a cricketer who played on almost every ground in the country in those days (yes, I went for trials in the Oval and had to face Jaswick Taylor...

A new Immigration Office has been built and opened in Port-of-Spain, but the citizens are still made to stand in a line outside from 7 am, awaiting their turn to enter this building. Was no consideration given to accommodating the clientèle/customers when designing this building?

I attended the District Revenue Office in Tunapuna yesterday (after a long weekend) to make my VAT payment, only to discover that it was closed at 11 am.

I am indeed appalled (but not surprised) that what ought to have been a simple act of humanity of “man to man” has, through ignorance coupled with the despicable tinge of innate racism, clouded the proposals of the Prime Minister to offer aid to the Commonwealth of Dominica and its citizens...

Let me state up front that I am in complete support of whatever assistance can be rendered to Dominica and other hurricane-ravaged countries. But what I heard on the news was jaw-dropping, to say the least.

There are so many negative and tragic things taking place in Trinidad and Tobago at the moment. The crime rate is extremely high coupled with a detection rate that is abysmally low and corruption is rampant in many institutions. People are getting away with murder. Literally.

Possibly about three weeks ago there was an accident which involved a police vehicle on Wrightson Road in the vicinity of Flament St, where the vehicle mounted the concrete median barriers, separating east and west bound traffic, thereby affecting their alignment and actually breaking a couple...

Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley keeps reminding our citizens to do more with less. Apparently many of them have not received the memo. They still believe the country has lots of money and Rowley is just giving them fake news.

I wish to congratulate Lydia Rosalie Choate, President of Madinah House, on being awarded the Public Service Medal of Merit (Silver) at this year’s National Awards Ceremony which was held at the National Academy of Performing Arts.

This is the time when “budget soothsayers” are usually in competition with one another in order to determine whose predictions had met most closely, the “prescriptions” being proffered by the Minister of Finance.
