I am of the view that the optimal speed limit for the highways in T&T should not be raised to 100 kmph. This matter, which is soon to be debated in Parliament, is one of tremendous economic and socio-psychological import.

Many in the population are speculating the measures going to be implemented by the Government in this upcoming budget presentation. Increase in taxes, restrictions, devaluation etc. The Government asks for citizens to be patient with regard to the “tough love” budget.

At this time of the year we have what is known as a budget debate. You are hearing from several corners what to expect, what not to expect and advice on what should be done. I believe what is important is that we be realistic and take the necessary factors into consideration.

I join the captain of the West Indies One Day Cricket International Team, Jason Holder, in being disappointed at the outcome of the 4th Match of the current West Indies/England series which was decided on what, in my opinion, is the unscientific Duckworth Lewis (D\L) Method.

Stand-in West Indies captain Jason Mohammed said that the camaraderie in the West Indies cricket camp is great and despite already down 3-0 in the One Day International series against England they are looking forward to the last match.

It is heartening to see the overwhelming response by both the public and private sector to the devastation suffered by our Caribbean family from the recent hurricanes. Hopefully, this spirit of giving and caring will continue even after they are back on their feet.

One of the characteristics of Caribbean people seems to be our dislike for saving for rainy days.

As a huge student of the game of cricket who read every book on its history and all playing aspects of the game at the Public Library in the sixties, and a cricketer who played on almost every ground in the country in those days (yes, I went for trials in the Oval and had to face Jaswick Taylor...

A new Immigration Office has been built and opened in Port-of-Spain, but the citizens are still made to stand in a line outside from 7 am, awaiting their turn to enter this building. Was no consideration given to accommodating the clientèle/customers when designing this building?
