I note with appreciation that the Tourism Development Company has published advisories setting out the terms and conditions that campers must observe if they are camping on certain beaches over the long Easter weekend.

Permit me to wallow in my misery over West Indies cricket, and the sad story it has become. Long ago no World XI was complete without a handful of West Indians, be it in batting or bowling. The ICC World Cup XI has just been named and not a West Indian cricketer has made the grade. What a shame...

Barataria is a very big community, stretching from Morvant Junction to Don Miguel Road. With so many natural disasters all over the world, we are not prepared for one. We originally had a community centre that was over 40 years-old.

A friend of mine shared a quote with me the other day, “We are the generation that the world has been waiting for...” and I was bowled over by the simplicity of the idea, the boldness of the thought and promise contained in those few well strung together words.

The problem has been solved! Hooray, hoorah! President Max Richards has revoked Nizam Mohammed’s appointment to the PSC! Start the fireworks! Lets have another carnival in October!  Congratulations to the all those who attacked Nizam Mohammed with full force!

Last Friday at the branch of TTPost, lower Abercromby Street, Port-of-Spain, I witnessed an unfortunate event. At 4.26 pm, the clerk at the counter motioned to the security guard, suggesting that it was time to close the door. He immediately went and proceeded to do same.

While everyone is shooting off their mouths over the comments made by Nizam Mohammed, the ‘haters’ in our society continue to mock the law with no respect for peoples’ rights to enjoy a peaceful existence.

I find it fascinating that miracles are expected of Police Commissioner Dwayne Gibbs, a foreigner, in the fight against crime in Trinidad and Tobago. It would appear that from top to bottom, we continue to be in denial about the root causes of crime in our nation.

It has always been rumoured that there is a glass ceiling in the police service beyond which Indo-Trini officers cannot rise. The expectations of young Indo-Trini officers were always limited to the rank of inspector.

Just before the start of the American War of Independence, Thomas Paine wrote “sowing the seeds to stimulate our nation must be done as early as possible, as, attempting to influence people at age 50 will prove unattainable.” Is it possible that those seeds sown (in our nation) during the...

In the summer of 1936 when Nazism was running rampant throughout Eastern Europe, the Olympics were coming to Berlin and Adolf Hitler viewed it as a golden opportunity to prove to the rest of the world that his Aryan race was superior.

Some people have called for the head of the Minister of Health Therese Baptiste–Cornelis based on her handling of the suspension of the doctors and nurses involved in the botched C-section at the San Fernando General Hospital that resulted in the death of an expectant mother.
