As we begin a new year, it’s time for resolutions for 2018. One of my resolutions is to give the Police Service some encouragement to do better.

The Minister of Housing has put forward a plan to reduce or eliminate the waiting list of 170,000 persons “asking” for a house from the government and the people of T&T. One aspect of this plan is to give 1,000 individuals a lot of land at a reduced price of 30 per cent of the market value...

I refer to a recent statement made by Opposition Leader Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar “Only the UNC can move TT forward”. This statement is baseless and could not be further from the truth.

Once again the issue of fireworks has raised its ugly and uncontrolled head! Indeed, I have had several pieces of debris landing on the roof of my relatively modest house and, I feel sure that many other residents have been similarly affected.

I am in full agreement with those who believe 2018 will be another difficult year in Trinidad and Tobago’s social, economic and political life. When I look at all that has happened in these areas in 2017, coupled with crime and high prices, I am not feeling Trinbago is in a safe place.

Sometimes I can’t help but observe in my doing, then write about it. My intent was not to work with SEA students but I was able to fit two into my schedule.

It is no wonder that people reluctantly change in T&T. The populace is given daily proof of this by way of the behaviours of those who find themselves in positions of influence and who are allowed space in the media.

have noted with great interest the controversy brewing and boiling over the controversial song Rowlee Mother Count by Massive Gosine for Carnival Season 2018.

I had intended to stay clear of the Massive Gosein song controversy, until I saw the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) letter, to the Trinidad and Tobago Publishers and Broadcasters Association (TTPBA).

I can never understand, no matter how hard I try, the thrill some people get out of fireworks.

I often wonder why these perpetrators (users) continue to support this mindless exercise in mental terrorism of not only the elderly, but the sick and animals.

Is there any way to curb the violence that pervades our society at present?

Our Prime Minister made a fairly positive speech to the nation but to my mind he was threatening the miscreants and it raises the question if this is the only way to deal with the issue.

As a winner of an Open Scholarship in 2014, I am honestly concerned about the level of disrespect towards national scholars and guarantors lately. Stipends are due to be paid quarterly in advance for the following three months.

On behalf of the residents and users of the stretch of road from the Samuel Cooper Road to the Rest House Trace, I thank the contractor, Latchmeesingh Contracting, for the upgrading.

This contentious Chutney calypso, Rowlee Mudda Count by Nirmal Gosine, has potential for massive interpretation. No need to lose sleep over it. I see nothing wrong with Mr Gosine earning some much needed money.

I really do not see what all the fuss is about the Rowlee Mudda Count song unless it really leads to banning all such songs. Calypso lyrics have been around here for decades and many have amounted to being outright insults with perhaps malicious intent.
