An effective local government system brings decision making closer to the people and by this very characteristic allows for these decisions to be needs-based. 

It fosters the social networking that is the premise of the term social capital. 

This term suggests that individual value is intrinsically tied to collective value and inclines...

While I understand COTT has a duty to ensure that the local music and movie industries do not suffer at the hands of “pirates” who do them a grave injustice, I can’t understand why they would want to charge DVD store owners for selling international movies.

Why was there not a “special HDC pick” from names of people who have waited 15 years and over? Just that waiting bracket, no others. Then another 500 from people between five and ten years? Then another random 500 from the most recent applicants?

Over the years I have been a regular reader of David Renwick on the energy sector matters.

In these times when the police service personnel are being knocked to the ground, I would like to put in my two cents and urge the public to not paint all officers with the “lazy and corrupt brush” and I have a true example of officers taking pride in their work while putting their lives on the l

I am an American citizen who was originally admitted to the Bar in Pennsylvania in 1978, New York in 1985, and Trinidad in 2004. I have been living and practicing law in Trinidad for more than ten years.

Our traffic burden is becoming more and more problematic. We who journey along the east-west corridor daily, living in the east and working in the west, waste close to four hours in traffic.

I was driving down Richmond Street one day and observed two boys, ages 10-12, having an altercation on the sidewalk. They looked like they were brothers but were having quite an argument. When blows started to ensue, one of them who had an umbrella in his hand, hit the other boy.

The recent uproar and wave of support from Trinis in particular, at Destra Garcia’s recent call for the fence removal incident at Bacchanal Jamaica carnival event, is irrational and moreover misplaced. In my view, the fence, barrier, segregation etc, between VIP and General is but a smoke screen

I note where the cacophonic duo, Rowley and Roget, is at it again trying to distract the audience from enjoying the acatalectic symphony composed by Kamla in 2010 and conducted by her in true virtuoso fashion since then. The Guardian reported Rowley decided to modify the PNM’s fœtal labour policy

A character in the hugely popular HBO series, Game of Thrones, remarked, “Politics is the art of compromise.” Immediately I started to think about own political quagmire. In Trinidad the political parties need to come together or compromise to defeat the PNM.

What really going on at NIB? I applied for my pension in July last year. The clerk who attended to me said that my application was in order—I have adequate contributions and everything else was satisfactory. She told me that I would receive my pension in two to three months’ time.

Chaguaramas is a wonderful place. And as more and more people realise that and visit the beaches, marinas, zip line, golf course, restaurants and bars, it has literally become hell to enter and leave.

Every time I see WASA’s advertisements boasting of improved delivery, I feel for the people of Habakkuk Gardens, Las Lomas and the residents of upper Mundo Nuevo and Lee Kam Trace in Mamoral, who not only do not have a reliable truck-borne water supply, but do not even have water lines running to

The England Test team is currently in the Caribbean for a three-Test series. This is to be followed by the Australians for a two-Test series.

To the West Indian cricket fans who are excited about these matches and hope that our team performs well, let’s face reality.

It seems good that the recent Easter and even Carnival periods in Tobago were booming. Flights and sea travel trips were booked solid. However, these travel fees are heavily subsidised by the Government, and by extension, the taxpayers.
