With that victory, Guinness Cavaliers, and south, had arrived. They had come into town, taken on some of the greatest bands we have produced, at the top of their game, and had won in a landslide.

It is good to see SuperBlue back in the soca arena, headband and all, showing the new generation of singers a thing or two about soca. From his grand entrance on the big stage with Soca Baptist through to Ethe

First impressions are lasting and this letter is being written in order to direct attention once again to the Macoya-Piarco roundabout portion of the Churchill Roosevelt Highway, the main gateway to Trinidad and, to some extent, Tobago.

While, as an act of humility, one ought not to blow one’s trumpet, this writer is heartened to note, and indeed takes credit, that the criteria and procedures employed for selection of our new President appear to have fit snuggly into, and have been in accordance

I support the West Indies cricket team and the PNM despite their ups and downs. So, fantastic as they be, I never applauded Aussie Glenn McGrath, nor Anand Ramlogan, the constant nettle in PNM’s face. McGrath is now retired, because he reached the cricketer’s retirement age.

The Office of the President refers to a letter to the Editor on page 14 of the Daily Express of Thursday 31st January, 2013, entitled “Puzzling Slant in the president’s (sic) speeches,” attributed to “Prof David Horsham of Brooklyn, New York.”

With the forthcoming election of our new President, the suggestion arises that the independent senators should resign to make way for president-elect Anthony Carmona to make his own appointments; this has come from former Senator Dana Seetahal and former public s
