A CHRISTMAS MEDLEY

December 20, 2010 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Tony Deyal column 

It is the week before Christmas and I am in the Turks and Caicos Islands on the island of Grand Turk on which is located in the capital of the island chain.  It is named Cockburn which, for reasons of modesty I believe, is pronounced “Coburn” (as in the surname of James, the star of […]

Another missed opportunity by the PNCR to do what’s right

December 20, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, The vote by the North American Region to shortlist is an exercise in tyranny of the majority, not democracy. The recent controversy over the procedure adopted for compiling the nominations for presidential candidates by North American PNCR Groups provides another opportunity to look into the prism of internal democracy in the PNCR. A […]

The insidious hand of political manipulation in law enforcement

December 20, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Devanand Bhagwan’s letter captioned, “When should we cross the line in defying the law” takes a disingenuous look at the issue involving Mark Benschop and the consequence of his protest over that environmentally health hazardous garbage dumpsite situated in a particular community in Georgetown. His examination of the issue and the issuance of […]

What does this mean?

December 20, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, When I read your December 19th article entitled, “Record stores unhappy with DVDs street vendors”, I was both amused and saddened at the same time. Why is it when we should be promoting copyright and piracy laws we instead have people guilty of the same international despicable acts grumbling over turf to sell […]

There is confusion about the Amaila Falls Hydro project

Dear Editor, Emile Mervin’s letter in Kaieteur News (December 19th) raises one serious issue that demands clarification by the Jagdeo Govt. If the Amaila Falls Hydro project is slated to be built by investors at no cost to the government, why does the government have to earmark portions of Norway’s “development assistance” money (US$250 million […]

Have the past 18 years been anything more than a poorly put together comedy bit?

December 20, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Someone mentioned a few days ago that the Mark Benschop saga at Le Repentir Cemetery and the subsequent police action, at 10 pm outside his house was comical. Well dare I ask is that not the modus operandi of this government? Have the past 18 years been anything more than a poorly put […]

Dear Editor, According to the findings of an opinion survey conducted by NACTA recently in Trinidad, voters are losing confidence in the ruling Peoples Partnership government’s ability to bring down crime. Although people have confidence in the Prime Minister, they are not pleased with the government’s handling of crime, CLICO, the economy, and Caribbean Airlines […]

Help Tiger find a home

December 20, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, On October 7, 2010, I got a call from a friend and animal lover telling me of a Pitbull called Tiger, locked in a kennel at what had once been Neesa Gopaul’s home. It seems that an alert member of the public, passing by the house every day, heard cries from the dog […]

Our season of discontent

December 20, 2010 | Filed Under Editorial 

As the end of another year approaches, thoughts inevitably coalesce in assessment of what has been accomplished and what lies ahead. In the usual course of events, this would be a season of joy, not only for Christians but for Guyanese from all walks of life. As a country founded to produce sugar, it was […]
