The words “before 1992” and “after 1992” are phrases fraught with meaning for all Guyanese, young and old alike.

September 4, 2011 | Filed Under Sports 

Dear Sports Editor, The Ramsay Alli/Anand Sanasie Rebel Board continues to defy all the best efforts to resolve our cricket problems, although Ramsay is on record saying “that cricket comes first”.

The Guyanese people must demand President Jagdeo’s resignation now!

September 4, 2011 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Freddie Kissoon 

I begin this column with two observations. First, the Police Commissioner in Guyana’s social structure is among the first top four most powerful persons in the country.

If anything, […]
