A Boxing Day drive along the Solomon Hochoy Highway was so absolutely lovely, the rolling hills and, maybe, dales, so verdant and well-kept. Arriving in San Fernando was amazing.

In an article that I wrote in the Guardian on December 31, the subheading for one of the topics of my article stated “It was a grave error to devalue the currency”. It should have really read, “It was a grave error to marginally devalue the currency”.

Currently, excavators are modifying the course of the Las Cuevas river where it meets the beach. The developer, no doubt, has no environmental approval from the EMA to modify this recognised turtle nesting beach.

I was particularly intrigued by the paragraph in the article in yesterday’s Guardian lead story stating, “Questioned on Government’s $147 million budget for Carnival across T&T, Imbert noted that expenditure had ballooned from $8 million in 1992 to $250 million before he returned to office...

For years I’ve heard talk about how unprofitable the International Soca Monarch was. I’ve never heard anything of the like about the Chutney Soca Monarch, but it does make sense to hear that it is/was in the same position.

We go to Tobago for a few prime ministers. We go to Tobago for the odd President or so. We go to Tobago when we want a holiday. When we looking for trouble, we even also head straight for Tobago. What do Tobagonians come to Trinidad looking for?

As we begin a new year, it’s time for resolutions for 2018. One of my resolutions is to give the Police Service some encouragement to do better.

The Minister of Housing has put forward a plan to reduce or eliminate the waiting list of 170,000 persons “asking” for a house from the government and the people of T&T. One aspect of this plan is to give 1,000 individuals a lot of land at a reduced price of 30 per cent of the market value...
