The Health Social Workers Association of T&T (HESWATT) has noted with grave concern the issue of economic migrants from Venezuela. Reports have pointed to an increase in Venezuelan nationals arriving on our shores. 

We must not succumb to the temptation to view our closest South American neighbours as “burdens,” which appears to be the tone in...

After 52 years of independence the powers that be have failed to halt the growing escalation of crime which is clearly symptomatic of a decaying society resulting no doubt from neglect and/or failure to address endemic and pervasive socio-economic conditions and deteriorating societal norms and...

Now that some months have passed since legal hunting has been prohibited and those of us who enjoy following our hounds have been demonised by a variety of writers to your paper, emotions have probably cooled and I hope what I want to say will be considered by those who mean well but are short...

The PM and every God-fearing person in sweet T&T knows how important prayer is. With the emphasis on this week of prayer, I think now is the appropriate time to return prayer to our schools. We have seen many results from the power of prayer.

Your editorial of January 28, and much public comment is focused on billboard advertising and I add my voice to those who object to them. However, no one seems to have raised objections to the equally annoying signs which are nailed to our beautiful trees all over the country. Particularly...

A radio advertisement that is meant to offer guidance to parents who lose their cool with their children, is aired at peak listening times. In it, Karen calls 911 and informs listeners, local, regional and elsewhere, that she could “kill” her son because he “stole” some money from her.

The recent humiliating defeats of the West Indies cricket team by India and New Zealand are further painful indications of our team’s inexorable descent into cricketing oblivion.

Monday morning’s commute was different. I passed billowing white smoke from the dump. It sprouted like a huge, fluffy mushroom over the hinterland.

I lived in Aberdeen, Scotland for many years and became very familiar with the lyrics for the song The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen, and as I was at Santa Rosa Park, Arima on Saturday I looked up at our fabulous Northern Range and the words came back to me “......

I read with interest theBail (Amendment) Bill proposed by the Government and find it quite interesting that amongst all the many crimes mentioned there is absolutely no mention of white-collar crimes.

Had it not been for the intervention of the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) following the US$100 million drug bust in Virginia, then this country’s fight against drug trafficking would have remained in a permanent state of paralysis. ...

Is it not amazing that after more than 50 years of independence, this country has found itself not being able to appoint a substantive Commissioner of Police after the position has been vacant for more than 15 months?

I would like to express my concern and compassion for the woman recently charged with the crime of abortion as it apparently is known that she ingested a drug with the express intent to cause herself to miscarry her child.

Had it not been for the intervention of the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) following the $100 million US drug bust in Virginia, then this country's fight against drug trafficking would have remained in a permanent state of paralysis. Billions of dollars in “dirty money” float around...

The reporting of a major cocaine bust (a street value of US$100 million) in Virginia, USA in T&T’s newspapers and social media makes it sound like a victimless, big money crime.

In support of all the other writers on the topic of shoulder drivers, might I add that I used to try the tactic of driving a little to the left and blocking the shoulder drivers. However, after a few close calls and some choice expletives from the drivers—which my daughter was forced to hear—I...
