During news time on January 9, as a quiz question a TV station asked: When was natural gas first  discovered in Trinidad? The answer given by the station was 1971. This is incorrect. I saw natural gas being used to cook in Guayaguayare in 1950.

The recent discovery of an 18-foot anaconda in Caroni, now nicknamed Sarp, has captured the imagination of all our citizens. All of us are either awed by the majesty of the creature, or horrified that such a beast has been lurking in our backyards.

I like the rhythm and some parts of the message in the recent collaboration between Kees and David Rudder, like the unity parts in the soca tune Live yuh life (Like yuh playing mas).  But far too often the bacchanal and vulgarity transcend the artistry and unity of the Carnival.

It is with increasing alarm that I observe the developing debate on Tobago autonomy. I will say right up front that I am opposed to any autonomy whatsoever for Tobago that grants that area of the nation any more powers than those enjoyed in Chaguanas, Cedros, Rio Claro, or Toco.

It amazes me how some people or organisations are quick to throw a wet blanket over efforts to solve problems and not offer solutions as to how they can work. We hear comments as “military state,” for example.

I was very sorry to learn of the murder of Mr Junior Valentine. Over the past several years I came to know Junior as a most friendly person.

When reading newspapers I admit reading tragic news stories where I sympathise for seconds with those concerned, then cathartically thumb through the following pages until I get to the fun parts—like the showbiz pages or comics. Yesterday though it was different as dismal feelings lingered, despi

I want to thank the T&T Guardian for publishing our letter as it allowed this dialogue between residents and the HDC. I also thank Ms Jearlean John for responding to our letter because she has revealed information which we were previously denied.

As a person of mixed heritage looking on at the recent furore about statements made by Hilton Sandy, I shake my head in despair and disappointment in those in leadership.

The Goverment has these cabinet meetings at he Coco Reef Hotel in Tobago. Nice hotel, quite expensive too. Did we not just recently spend over $100 million to re-fit the Tobago Hilton, now the Grand Magdalena Hotel which is owned by the Goverment?

Parking in the Queens Park Savannah is usually allowed on Carnival Monday and Tuesday although you see cars parked every day.

Many opinions have been expressed with regards to soldiers being given authority to arrest people. Some say soldiers are trained to kill and they do not have investigative skills, and that they are to protect the country from external invasion.

I am writing to seek your assistance in highlighting the plight of residents of Williamsmith Mantacool Road where the authorities neglect to supply pipe-borne water.

Truth be told, a lot of racism exists here that we ignore. Mr Sandy’s statements just mirror the attitude of many Tobagonians towards Indians, whether from Trinidad or Guyana. But if he is a racist, he should not be a hypocrite and apologise for what he is really thinking.
