2018 will be a tipping point year for T&T. If we can survive it economically and socially, a serious hurdle will have been crossed. If we cannot survive, the consequences are too dire to mention.

On Saturday night, I attended a show, Brian MacFarlane’s presentation “Christmas Joy—a gift of drum”, at Queen’s Hall. To put it mildly, this show was an embarrassment of riches. In a word, it was perfect.

As a true blue “culture man” with over 50 years under my hat, I am disgusted with the disrespect pan writers are facing, not only on the airwaves with meagre airplay, but many do not recoup their outlay for providing songs/music for the Carnival, Panorama to be exact.

Here we have lack of consistency showing up in our Test cricketers who were once more dismissed for less than 150 against New Zealand. The commentators are confused for the wicket was good for batting. What went wrong?

One thing is clear! It’s going to be a full scale war as WI face New Zealand in this Test series. And so far the hosts are running riot over WI boys. It is now that WI shall see whether they are boys or men.

The country can exhale now. Kamla has annihilated her opponents. Some, like Christine and Chanda (the two C’s) rashly picked up the formidable gauntlet. Some, like Vasant, declined after vaunting much their eagerness to accept.

Once again, it’s the season of peace and goodwill. The country is abuzz with preparations for the traditional year-end festivities, many already contemplating their resolutions for the New Year.

Despite pleadings from the Police Traffic Branch and Arrive Alive, speeding and driving drunk on the nation’s roads have now become the norm, all because drivers are getting off with a ticket and a measly fine.

I have been a Canadian citizen for 43 years. I was born in Guyana and I love my Guyanese heritage. My husband was born in Trinidad; he is also a Canadian citizen. We always travel together with Canadian passports.

On September 28, 2017, when we had all the heavy rains and flood due to the Santa Cruz river over flowing its banks, we lost our retaining wall and 30 per cent of the property. The erosion continues to this day and is now threatening the foundation of our home.
