SUNDAY CHRONICLEApril 17,.2.00


II


From Rickey Singh in Port-of-Spain

T HE peoples of the Caribbean
Community have been given a firm
pledge of unvarnished justice by
outstanding regional jurist, Michael de la
Bastide, with the official birth of the
Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) in Port-
of-Spain.


His ringing assurance yes-
terday, that contrasted with lin-
gering reservations and ex-
pressed fears of some politi-
cians, parties, lawyers and civil
society groups, was in sum:
"Have no fear. Justice is as-
sured for all. This is a court you,
the people, will come to deeply
respect and cherish by its per-
formance based on competence
and integrity".
Making the final of a series
of "statements" that started
with the Secretary General of
CARICOM, Edwin Carrington,
the 67-year-old retired Chief
Justice of Trinidad and Tobago,
said -with a wry smile as he
stared at the overflowing audi-
ence at the spacious Queen's
Hall:
"If in their acceptance of


the recommendation of the Re-
gional Judicial and Legal Ser-
vices Commission (RJLSC) of
me as the first President of the
CCJ, that I could be pliable,
then the Heads of Government
of the community may have
made a wrong choice with their
eyes wide open..."
Earlier hailed by Barbados
Chief Justice and chairman of
the Regional Task Force for es-
tablishment of the CCJ, Sir
David Simmons, as "a legal gi-
ant" and perhaps the greatest
lawyer of the Caribbean for the
past 40 years, President de la
Bastide commended to the
people of CARICOM the "re-
markable, unique features" of
this newest institution of the
community.
+ First, its uniqueness as

two courts in one as a trade
court with original jurisdiction in
settling disputes arising from in-
terpretation of the CARICOM
Treaty in the functioning of the
Caribbean Single Market and
Economy; and
Secondly, and ultimately -
hopefully before long as the
final appellate court for all
member states in place of the
Judicial Committee of the Privy
Council.
+ Further, he said, the court
was unique in the mechanisms
that have been institutionalized
- thanks to "the vision and
commitment of past and present
Heads of Government" to
ensure its independence from
political manipulations or influ-
ence.
+ Such independence from
political intrusion, he explained,
related to the complete freedom
of the RJLSC in the appoint-
ment and removal of any mem-
ber of the panel of judges (cur-
rently six, later to be nine).
And for the Heads of Gov-
ernment to be involved only in
the acceptance or rejection by a
nominee of the Commission as
President, basically on the ba-
sis of unanimity.
Additionally, the CCJ is to
be funded independently from a
Trust Fund, established by the


Caribbean Development Bank
- which was successful in rais-
ing US$100 million for the op-
erations of the court.
There is no representative

the court should there be any
default in honouring of pay-
ments, and dependence on any
government.


his declaration from the distin-
guished gathering of regional de-
cision-makers, legal luminaries,
representatives of opposition
parties, leading non-government
organizations, cultural and reli-
gious personalities.
The occasion started with
an inter-faith service, reflecting
the multi-ethnicity and religious
diversity of the region's
peoples and in similar vein were
rendered musical items and
songs culminating with an in-
spiring rendition of "We are the
world" on the steelpan by the
famous Trinidadian exponent of
pan music, Lens Boogsie Sharp.
Earlier, with the CCJ Presi-
dent and initial panel of six
judges seated on the stage
against the backdrop of national
flags and overhanging replicas of
the court's seal a linked CCJ
acronym and amid cultural
presentations, statements were
also delivered by the Prime
Minister of Trinidad and To-
bago, Patrick Manning and the
Prime Minister of St. Lucia,
Kenny Anthony.
De la Bastide commended
Guyana and Barbados for being
in readiness for the general final

By Rickey Singh
in Port-of-Spain
WITH Haiti as the sole ex-
cluded member, the Carib-
bean Court of Justice (CCJ)
was launched with pomp and
ceremony yesterday but in a
climate of controversy and
criticisms.
The controversy, as re-
ported by the Trinidad and To-
bago print and electronic media,
highlighted the ongoing court


battle between Prime M
Patrick Manning and Chi
tice Satnarine Sharma o
peachment proceedings.
Dominating news co
was not the arrangement
yesterday's inauguration
CCJ, but the decision by
dent of the Republic, M
Richards, not to appoint
bunal, as requested by
Minister Manning, to co
impeachment of the Chii
twice.

(From page two)
Bharrat Jagdeo and Prime Minister Owen Arthur of Barba-
dos. With them were also their respective parliamentary lead-
ers Robert Corbin. leader of the People's National Congress
Reform and Clyde Mascoll of the Democratic Labour Party.
Corbin, who was accompanied by his wife, said he was
"deeply impressed" by the ceremony and was pleased to be
part of the historic occasion.
Among noticeable absentee politicians were the opposition
leaders of Jamaica, Bruce Golding. and Tnnidad and Tobago,
Basdeo Panday.
Jamaica's Prime Minister PJ. Patterson said be was
most happy to witness the official launch of the first phase
of the CCJ and was now looking forward to the second step
of "national consultations" to hasten the process that would
finally result in the CCJ as "our final appellate court, re-
placing the Prisy Council."

the inauguration event.
Controversy was also re-
flected in strident criticisms
from the opposition United Na-
tional Congress (UNC) that is
opposed to the CCJ as a re-
placement at this stage for the
Judicial Committee of the Privy
Council.
The party's legal spokes-
person and former Attorney
General Kamla Persad-
Bissessar, declared on the eve of
the inauguration ceremony that
the occasion was "a farce and a
charade".
She claims that its legality
could be questioned as it was


than three decades, a number of
CARICOM states had not
placed themselves in readiness
to fully access the CCJ in its fi-
nal appellate and original juris-
dictions.
Both, however, said they
did not wish to become em-
broiled in the internal affairs of
member states. They only
wanted to, respectively, under-
score their personal disappoint-
ment over the lingering
squabbles involving retention of
the Privy Council instead of its
replacement by a final Carib-
bean appellate institution.
The launch of the CCJ yes-
terday involved an expenditure
of about US$400,000.
The court is currently
housed on the fifth floor of
the Unit Trust Corporation
building in Independence
Square in Port-of-Spain.

It is virtually a sentiment
that echoes that of Jamaican op-

CCJ


-OUR


I .FINAL COURT

i Y ESTERDAY marked a most proud mo
ment in the post-independence history
of the Caribbean Community with the
,ceremonial inauguration of the Caribbean.
lCourt of Justice (CCJ).
With its initial function as a trade court with original
jurisdiction in resolving disputes arising from interpreta-
!.tion of the new CARICOM Treaty, the CCJ is to eventu-
ally replace the London-based Judicial Committee of the
'Privy Council as the final appellate court for all signa-
Story member states of our Community.
Guyana's severance of ties with the Privy Council in
_.the. 1970s under a People's National Congress admin-
istration of *the late President Forbes Burnham, took
place at a time of much disquiet, to say the least, in
Guyana and other CARICOM. states, about the future for


an independent judiciary, free from political influence.
Concerns for judicial independence deepened when
the PNC administration introduced its doctrine of 'party
paramountcy' in the governance of the country, and had
the 'Palm Tree' flying alongside the national 'Golden Ar-
rowhead' from the building housing the Guyana Court
of Appeal.,
Unlike all other CARICOM states, there was no other
court to which Guyanese could have challenged rulings
of the Guyana Court of Appeal. Now, with Guyana's ac-
cess to the CCJ, for both its general appellate jurisdic-
tion in criminal and civil cases, as well as its function;as
a trade court, that right now exists' to have the CCJ as
our court of last resort.
By next month, 'however, only Barbados will be in a
position, as Guyana now is, to access the CCJ as its fi-
nal appellate court. But since a minimum of three signa-
tory member states is required for the CCJ to function
as a final appellate court, this newest institution of our
Community is not expected to so perform before piar-
haps, 2006. It is a development to be looked forward to
with great expectations..
Among the first panel of seven jurists, under the presi-
dency of Mr. Michael de la Bastide, retired Chief Justice
of Trinidad and Tobago, are two distinguished members
of Guyana's legal profession former Chancellor of the
Judiciary, Desiree Bernard, and Mr. Duke Pollard, Who
*had served as Director of CARICOM's Legislative Draft-
ing Facility.
As one of the principal consultants on developments
for the realisation of the CCJ, Pollard spoke and wrote


extensively on the importance of the regional court.
We find it relevant to close with an observation he
made about the uniqueness of the CCJ:
"By any rigorous, dispassionate standard of assess-
mept applicable to regional or. international judicial in-
stitutions today, it would be difficult to avoid the.conclu-
sion that the Caribbean Court of Justice is a unique in-
ternational judicial institution in terms of its jurisdiction;
the institutional arrangements devised for the appoint-
ment, removal and disciplining of its judges and the
mechanism agreed to for the financing of its operations..."
Congratulations to all who strenuously flaboured,
amid some very sharp, and still persisting, ciiticisms'to
make yesterday's CCJ inauguration ceremony in Port-
of-Spain a reality.

Three cases of US 'big stick' politics in CARICOM


,THERE SEEM to be no
.L limits to the unbridled
arrogance. of spokespersons
tfor the United States admin-
,'istration of President George
,W. Bush when it comes to
publicly rebuking, indeed,
dictating to governments in
..the Caribbean Community
how they should conduct
their foreign and domestic
governance policies.
Latest example of this US
'big-stick'-wielding policy
emerged last week to affect
Guyana. But there were two
earlier examples, one concerning
Barbados and other CARICOM
governments, following their
criticims of the war on Iraq,
and the third pertains to the
right -of the Surinamese people
to freely choose a government.
It is of significance to note
that in all three cases public
chastisement/warnings were the
preferred US State
Department's option to private
interventions either by infor-
mal conversation or official
communication with the govern-
ments concerned.
BARBADOS: In April
2003, following the Caribbean


RICHARD BOUMHER


Community's collective con-
demnation of the side-lining of
the United Nations Security
Council by the Bush administra-
tion for its pre-emptive war on
Iraq, Otto Reich, the well-
known Cuban emigre, then Spe-
cial Envoy for Western Hemi-
spheric Initiatives, publicly
chastised, while in Barbados, re-


gional governments for
criticising the US Iraq war deci-
sion.
Exercising his freedom to
openly disagree with the posi-
tion of Barbados and her
CARICOM allies, Reich had
poured salt in the wound by us-
ing state-owned Caribbean
Broadcasting Corporation
(CBC) to launch his public re-
buke.
He warned regional leaders
to ponder the "consequences of
their criticisms" telling them that
"the American people and Con-
gress were listening and it would
be difficult, for example, to put
a case about regional banana ex-
ports considering CARICOM's
position (on the war on Iraq)..."
That was just too much for
Foreign Minister Dame Bille
Miller who, according to an ar-
ticle titled 'Outrage' in the
'Weekend Nation', angrily deliv-
ered a verbal slap on Reich, de-
claring that her government was
"gravely concerned, deeply dis-
pleased, and most offended" by
-comments of the US envoy. If
there were differences of opin-
ion, she said, "we would wish
to be told in private

SECOND EXAMPLE
SURINAME: Another ex-
ample of this arrogance was re-
ported in the 'Jamaica Ob-
server' last month (March 12)
of a US "warning" to Suriname
against former military ruler,
Desi Bouterse, being part of any
new government in Paramaribo.
Bouterse had taken power in a
coup in 1980 and has been in
and out of power between then
and 1991.
He is leader of the National
Democratic Party with seven
parliamentary seats won at the
last general election and his
party is contesting the forth-
coming May 25 election. Pre-
liminary reports signal the pos-
sibility of his party being in-
volved in a new coalition ar-
rangement. The State Depart-
ment said it "will find it diffi-
cult to work with such a gov-
ernment (involving Bouterse)".


Washington apparently
wants to determine the shape of
a new Surinamese government
even before the election takes
place. And, once again, it chose
to make its stand public. A re-
peat of Otto Reich's earlier in-
discretion in Barbados.
The latest example of such
political rudeness from the USA
came last Tuesday (April 12)
from State Department spokes-
man, Richard Boucher, in a pub-
lic warning to Guyana. Again,
no preference for private com-


munication. Just resort to the
big stick approach.
Amid raging controversy in
2004 over allegations of possible
direct ministerial and police in-
volvement in killings by a-
claimed 'phantom death squad'
- the victims included wanted
armed criminals President
Bharrat Jagdeo established a
high-level three member com-
mission to investigate and deter-
mine whether there was evi-
dence of claimed involvement
by Home Affairs Minister
Ronald Gajraj..
The Commissioners were:
Appeals Court Judge and
former Director of Public Pros-
ecutions, Ian Chang (chairman);
ex-Chancellor of the Judiciary
and former Attorney General of
the previous People's National
Congress administration; and
former Chief of Staff of the
Guyana Defence Force, Briga-
dier Norman McLean.
The Minister of Home Af-
fairs agreed to go on leave pend-
ing the outcome of the
Commission's findings. The
Commission spent some nine
months of public hearings, in-
cluding three extensions, and
summoned about 20 witnesses
after those claiming to have


"evidence" on Gajraj's alleged
involvement with the death
squad killings failed to show up.
The Guyana Government
was anxious to benefit from the
information was said to have
been in the possession of the
US embassy on the sensational
claims of death squad killings,
but none was made available to
either the police or the
President's Office.
Nor was any of the evi-
dence the main opposition

form (PNCR) claimed to pos-
sess to show ministerial com-


plicity, ever made available to
either the Police Commissioner
or any of the investigating com-
missioners.


volvement in approval of gun li-
cences.
Then came, within 48 hours,
the very strange public warning
from the State Department's
Boucher criticising the reinstate-
ment of Gajraj as a cabinet min-
ister because of "serious proce-
dural irregularities" raised by the
Chang probe commission.
For sure, the minister is not
without blame and his own ar-
rogance as often displayed by
his public utterances, does not
help. And the necessity for a
ministerial reshuffle, in the
months ahead, should not be
ruled out by President Jagdeo,
without bowing to undue and
inappropriate external pres-
sures.
However, the US State De-
partment has not helped by its
self-appointed role as judge and
juiy above the findings of the
high-level independent probe
commission when Boucher
ominously chose to resort to
that old device of US adminis-
trations by threatening "pos-
sible reduction in US aid" to
Guyana. He said that "we would

had to come out swinging with
threats of cut in economic aid in
protest against a sovereign,
democratically elected govern-
ment exercising its right to in-
dependently probe allegations
against the minister's reinstate-
ment, having been unanimously
exonerated.
Washington may also
have moved speedily behind
the scenes, once the decision
was taken to reinstate Gajraj,
to influence its European al-
lies into also coming out with
a condemnatory position on
his reinstatement. The EU
has expressed its "disap-
pointment and disquiet" over
Gajraj's reinstatement
As this column was being
written, there came a statement
from Canada that contrasted
with the threat of possible aid
reduction from the USA. In ex-
pressing its own concern,
Canada said:
"It remains committed to
Guyana's long-term develop-
ment. However, challenges pre-
sented by the governance cli-
mate in the country make the
advancement of this partner-
ship, at times, difficult".
There are various ways for
donor nations to express their
concerns without openly insult-
ing or threatening small, weak
and economically vulnerable na-
tions.
'Big stick' politics is cer-
tainly not the way for encour-
aging mutual respect and
strengthening bonds of his-
torical friendship between
the mighty USA and Guyana
or against a ,qt9, its
CARICOM partners.


I'ro evo6eih o 3poema Bucer-


I


























'THE Phantom' was a popular cartoon char-
acter when I was a kid and I was among the
legion of comic book addicts who for years
followed the daring exploits of this masked
crusader against evil men in the jungles of
Africa.


The Phantom was there be-
fore Batman, before The
Shadow, before The Green Hor-
net, before The Lone Ranger.
He was the comics' first
masked mystery-man hero long
striking fear into the dark hearts
of the wicked.
Kings Features, which has
the distribution franchise for
The Phantom's tales, says he is
the 'The Ghost Who Walks,'
'The Man Who Cannot Die,'
'The Guardian of the Eastern
Dark.'
"In the beginning he had
been a half-drowned sailor, flung
ashore on the terrible, blood-
drenched Bengalla coast after
pirates burned his ship and
slaughtered his mates. The
gentle Bandar pygmies, taking
him to be a sea god of ancient
prophecy, nursed him back to
fitness and became his everlast-
ing friends as the castaway
faced his destiny, donned cos-
tume and mask and was reborn
as the first of the Phantoms,
scourge of predators every-
where", the syndicate says of
the fictional character.
It adds: "I swear to devote
my life to the destruction of pi-
racy, greed, cruelty and injus-
tice!" he cried as he formally
took "The Oath of the Skull" by
firelight. "And my sons and


their sons shall follow me!"
In comic book lore, from
thieves and smugglers to cut-
throat harbour rats to crazed
dictators seeking to enslave free
men, all have met the Phantom
over 60 thrilling years, and all
have tasted his wrath.
"Always changing with the
whirlwind times around him, he
has increasingly come to func-
tion as something of a United
Nations troubleshooter-at-large,
a shadowy trench-coated figure
slipping in and out of modern
Third World political intrigue",
Kings Features says.
The Phantom has come a
long way from the boyhood
comic book hero I knew and
from all accounts, the name still
stirs fear.
I had forgotten all about The
Phantom as I left my boyhood
behind and the name did not stir
much interest in me until early
2003 when I was at the JFK Air--
port in New York on my way
home after holidaying with rela-
tives in the United States.
On the flight with me was
an official I knew from the U.S.
Embassy here.
As is my custom when on
holiday, I try to keep away from
work which means I try not to
keep up with the news back
home.


When I had left the country
in late 2002, it was reeling from
the crime wave and fear stalked
the land from the Buxton, East
Coast epicentre of the maraud-
ing criminal gangs.'
After being away from it all
for a while, I wanted to find out
what was the situation as I
headed home and asked the em-
bassy officer to fill me in.
He looked surprised as he
asked whether I had not heard
about the 'Phantom Gangs' at
work in Guyana and seemed
even more surprised when I re-
turned a blank stare.
I had an uncle who was
called Phantom and the only
other phantom I knew was the
masked comic book hero.
Back home and at work,
tales about the Phantom Gangs
abounded but these were all
shadowy and steeped in as
much mystique as the exploits
of The Phantom.
The stories mounted as
known and dangerous criminals
the police seemed unable to find
began turning up dead and fin-
gers pointed at the phantoms no
one could see.
Testifying in November
2003 at a public inquiry into the
Guyana Police Force, then
Crime Chief Leon Trim said the
police were working to bring so-
called 'phantom gangs' to justice
for certain killings to which
they were allegedly associated.
Mr Trim said 'he did not
recognize such groups as 'phan-
tom' but 'criminal', since they
were operating outside of the
Police Force.
He was asked about the
emergence of 'phantom gangs'
and their relation to the discov-
ery of certain dead bodies by
the Defence Forces Commis-
sion, which was conducting the


inquiry at the Supreme Court
Law Library in Georgetown.
Trim said if there were ille-
gal groups killing people, they
were committing crimes and the
Force "will not tolerate" such
gangs.
He reported that the police
had arrested and questioned
several persons with some
'phantom' association, but
"have not mustered any evi-
dence to bring them to justice."
"No binding evidence sur-
faced in order for us to take
those persons to court," he told
the commission.
"It is a problem we are
working on. We are working to-
wards changing the situation
with the aim of bringing these
people to justice," Trim said,
adding that the police had not
shelved their probe.
The police since then have
not had much success in track-

was in Trinidad and Tobago,
which is still reeling under al-
most daily kidnapping and
rampant murderous robberies by
criminal gangs, when I heard
public calls for the recruitment
of phantom gangs to go after the
brigands in the face of seeming
police impotence to stop them.
Tales about the 'Phantom
Gangs' here swirled as the ranks

Careless use of the roads by

EU sugar reform: another view


By Rajendra Rampersaud

L ET me begin by
saying that I am
grateful to EU Ambas-
sador Per Eklund for
his response (Thursday,
April 14) to my article
'The demise of prefer-
ential market' in the
Sunday Chronicle of
April 3,2005.
I am even more thankful to
the Chronicle for giving me the
opportunity to respond to Am-
bassador Eklund's attempt to kill
what in his perception are myths
surrounding the sugar issue.
I deal with the myths as he
identified them.

MYTH I) "The sugar reform
brings to an end the Caribbean


GBT#


preferential access to the EU
market. This is wrong. There is
no question of a demise or ero-
sion of the preferential market
for sugar."
I find this a rather strange
proposition since the literature I
have consulted in the prepara-
tion of this article include publi-
cations from the IMF, World
Bank and university research in-
stitutions which all made refer-
ence to the loss or erosion of the
preferential market with respect
to banana and sugar.
The March 2005 issue of
the Finance and Development
Journal published an article en-
titled 'Preference erosion: Cause
for Alarm' by Katerina
Alexandraki.
This article defines pref-
erence erosion "as occurring
when export partners elimi-
nate preferences, expand the
number of beneficiaries, or
lower most favoured nation


(MFN) tariffs unilaterally
without lowering preferential
tariffs proportionately."
The EU actions in increas-
ing the number of beneficiaries
under the E.B.A scheme at the
expense of African, Caribbean
and Pacific (ACP) countries, and
its proposal for price reform of
the sugar regime are signs of ero-
sion or loss of preferential mar-
ket.
After the sugar reform pro-
posal by the EU, St Kitts indi-
cated that it will be out of sugar
having already suffered from the
banana fiasco.
The devastation of
Dominica is living testimony to
the welfare impact of these hasty
reforms implemented "at break
neck speed".
In fact, an IMF study
(2004) 'Impact of preference
erosion' pointed to the high
vulnerability for the 10 most
exposed countries (six from


the Caribbean) as a result of
the expected decline in sugar
and banana preferential
prices.
MYTH 2) "The Sugar Pro-
tocol is sacred and being violated
by the EU. This is wrong... The
commission proposal does not
question the existence of the pro-
tocol."
This issue will be the sub-
ject of intense debate in future. I
am not a legal person but the le-
gal minds at the CARICOM
Stakeholder Conference on Re-
form of the EU sugar regime on
28-29 September 2004 in
Georgetown were clear in their
thoughts that the EU proposal
on sugar if implemented would
be a legal violation of the Sugar
Protocol.
The ACP press release of
October 2004 in response to the
EU stated that the severity of
the price cuts and the timeframe
for their implementation as pro-

posed, are totally unacceptable
because they are tantamount to
a breach of obligation enshrined
in the Sugar Protocol.
It went on to emphasise that
"access without a remunerative
price is meaningless."
It's within Ambassador
Eklund's right to reject out-
right that position but that
does not mean that the ACP
position is a blatant lie and a
fabrication.
MYTH 3) "The EU will
compensate its own farmers
generously but does not care
about ACP countries". In my
article I did state that the pro-
posal recommends a 1340
Million Euro compensation
for European Beet farmers
while making only a vague
reference to providing some
"appropriate accompanying
measures" for ACP farmers. I
find it difficult to understand
why an envelope such as Table
2 in the EU proposal could not
have been developed for ACP
countries who were even
more hard hit by the reform
proposal and more so since the
Ambassador claimed that the
consultation with the ACP be-
gan as early 2002.
MYTH4) I did not state that
myth in my article so I'll move
on to the final myth.
MYTH 5) "The EU sugar
reform is coming without con-
sultation, it is too drastic. This
is wrong."
This proposal is very dras-
Stic and rigid in my opinion and I
fully agree with the ACP coun-
tries that a longer transition pe-
riod is required for the reform of
the sugar regime. On the issue of
consultation I will give the ben-
efit of doubt to Ambassador
Eklund that consultations with


the ACP began since 2002.
However, I will await the fi-
nal outcome of the EU sugar re-
form text in order to make a final
judgment on the impact of such
consultations.
The WTO Framework
Agreement (August 2004) fully
recognizes the ACP/EU sugar
agreement. In fact in paragraph
16 of the Harbison text, refer-
ence is made to the need for pref-
erence granting countries in the
exercise of implementing their
tariff reductions commitments
"to maintain, to the maximum
extent technically feasible the
nominal margins of tariff prefer-
ence and other terms and condi-
tions of preference arrangements
they accord to their developing
partners".
As one can clearly see, the
WTO position is even more flex-
ible than the EU.
Finally, I have no doubt what-
soever that the EU sugar regime
needs to be reformed.
However; the means to
the end rather than the end
itself is of paramount impor-
tance. A more systematic ap-
proach will give the ACP
countries the necessary
breathing space to success-
fully reform their sugar indus-
try like the process that be-
gan in Guyana some time ago.
Let me close by stating that
while there is the European truth
on the sugar issue there is also
ACP truth.
However, we-can only
move forward when a common
ground is found that is ben-
eficial to all, achieved through
a process of dialogue and mu-
tual trust since past experi-
ence of these reform processes
certainly does not augur well
for the future.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE April 17, 2005 -.


Outreach Worries


PRESIDENT
Bharrat
Jagdeo 's
policy of taking his
Government to the
people is making
his political oppo-
nents worried, and
at times, behaving
desperately. Upon
his assumption to
office, the Presi-
dent enlarged the
PPP/C's policy of
governing with all
of the people on
board and some
may say, in the
driver's seat too.
For the first time in history,
the Cabinet held regular sessions
outside of Georgetown. The
President and his ministers have
interacted freely with residents
in the different areas. Various
representative groups and ordi-
nary citizens were invited to the
Cabinet meetings to make their
inpui C, issues of concern per-
sonal, community 6r otherwise.
Last weekend saw a return
of the Cabinet outreach to East


and West Berbice. Already, out-
reaches were held in 1999, 2000
and 2002 in Linden, West
Demerara, and Essequibo. A sec-
ond and even a third-round of
these Cabinet outreach exercises
are in progress. The objectives
of these outreaches are manifold:
to check on implementation of
development projects; to receive
residents' feedback and sugges-


Mr. Robert Persaud


tions; and to clarify and inform
the population about the
administration's policies and
projects for the coming period.
The usefulness of these
Cabinet outreaches is never in
doubt. There is a follow-up and
reporting mechanism for the
matters raised. And now with the
infrGudction of the regional Ac-
countability Framx.'cOrk. these


outreaches will be given more
reach in enhancing the speed of
local development.
Also, these outreaches are
like weathercocks: indicators of
how the residents view the work
of central and local government
bodies. At nearly all of the ses-
sions, comments about the per-
formance or underperformance of
a ministry, a State agency, a re-
gion or the NDC could
be heard. These are se-
riously noted. I am sure
they inform the Presi-
dent and his ministers
about how the Govern-
ment is faring in term of
delivery of public goods
and services.
The reality is that
the outreaches make the
Government more ac-
countable, more action-
oriented and more in
touch with reality (not
that it has not been).
But a dimension of
these outreaches is the
worry and even desperation they
spawn for those in the opposi-
tion. The infamous PNCR re-
treat in Linden examined the im-
plications of these on-going ac-
tivities and explored ways of re-
ducing its effectiveness, espe-
cially in so-called opposition
strongholds. This is clearly an-
other example of a plan to im-
pede development, to induce

Expressions of interest

The Government of Guyana has received fmancing from the World Bank toward the cost of the Public Sector
Technical Assistance Credit (PSTAC), and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consultant services. The
Government wishes to implement a Management Information System (MIS) to track the operations of its
programs and provide timely information on costs and beneficiary payments as input into management
processes. A preliminary System Design Study was undertaken under the safety nets component of the
PSTAC Project from the World Bank, designed to support a related Poverty Reduction Strategy Credit
(PRSC). This MIS will serve as a base for the development of a more robust scaleable system capable of
integration within the network of the Government's Ministries and Agencies, particularly the Ministry of
Finance, Health, National Insurance Scheme and the Bureau of Statistics. The services will be conducted
under the Social Safety Nets component of the PSTAC project from the World Bank.

The consultant will work under the direction of the MLHSSS, with input and review from the Policy
Coordination and Program Management Unit (PCPMU) of the Office of the President.

The Policy Coordination and Program Management Unit now invite eligible consultants to indicate their
interest in providing the services. Interested consultants are asked to submit a detailed Curriculum Vitae to
the address below.

A consultant will be selected in accordance with the procedures set out in the World Bank's Guidelines:
Selection and Employment of Consultants by World Bank Borrowers (current edition).
Interested consultants may obtain further information at the address below during office hours 0800 to 1700
hours.

hardship in communities with
the aim of causing hostility and
discontent among the population
so that the Government looks
bad.
As is the norm, these out-
reaches are publicised so they
become public knowledge, all
and sundry, including the op-
position, are informed well in
advance.
The opposition was last
week unable to conceal its
worry about the impact of
these outreaches on national
progress. Sticking to the
script of the retreat plot,
members of the PNCR lead-
ership decided to turn up,
before or after, around where
many of the events were
planned in Regions Five and
Six. But in nearly all in-
stances, residents did not en-
tertain them. There were even
attempts to distribute plac-


ards at certain villages for resi-
dents'to protest against the
visiting government officials.
This did not materialise and-
persons were not amused by
this act of political despera-
tion. The placards were
thrown away and the provo-
cateurs chased off.
Not succeeding in East and
West Berbice, the opposition
then followed the President into
Sophia, Greater Georgetown
where support for the govern-
ment has been growing at the ex-
pense of the main opposition.
This time, it employed its chief
political sidekick and owner of
Channel 6, CN Sharma. He was
intended to create a distraction,
through his usual comedy. Resi-
dents of Sophia quickly rejected
the clownish antics of the main
opposition party and its minion
who were chased away by resi-
dents. These events were well


choreographed like the Justice for
All shows with actors and ac-
tresses.
People are seeing through
these distractions. They are
outraged at these attempts to
derail development projects
and to make politics out of
community concerns and de-
velopment. But no one should
expect this to stop right now,
unless this element of the Lin-
den retreat plot is scrapped.
The Government's out-
reach programmes of en-
hancing development would
be accelerated. And those
who think that this is elec-
tioneering are far off-the
mark. Elections are a long
while from now and there
is much development work
to be done. And another
thing: if they think this is
electioneering, well they
haven't seen anything yet!

Disbursement of household


recovery package begins


RESIDENTS of Annandale
and Buxton on the East Coast
Demerara. yesterday started
receiving cheques for $10 000
as the government began its
household recovery package
disbursement to households
that were seriously affected
by the floods.
The Government
Information Agency (GINA)
said that the Annandalc
Secondary and Buxton Primary
Schools were packed to
capacity as residents responded
to uplift the package.

Buxton cet 10 000


the disbursement would
continue today, villagers were
eager to get their money
immediately, GINA said.
GINA said cheques will
continue to be handed over to
residents who provide valid
identification today. Persons
were asked to produce either
their National Identification
Card or passport and to sign
upon receiving the cheques
which could be cashed at any
commercial bank.
Benn said disbursement
of the cheques began in those
two villages because they were


the most densely populated on
the East Coast. He noted that
the number of persons registered
to receive in Annandale
amounted to about 1 215 and
that as soon as disbursement
was completed in the two
villages, it would continue in
other areas throughout the week.
"We have had a limited
number of cheques printed thus
far... cheques were being printed
all night last night," he stated.
He added "we should be
able to disburse over 80 to 90
per cent of the cheques within
the two days as we become


cheaues


familiar with the process."
In the meantime, Mr.
Benn observed that more
than 100 persons are
currently in the South
Georgetown area gathering
information with regard to
household damages during
the flood and homes in which
residents would have been
under flood water for two
weeks or more. He explained

ANOTHER



'WOMAN



FIR T'


By Rickey Singh

SEATED AMONG the first
panel of six judges on stage
for yesterday's ceremonial
launch of the Caribbean
Court of Justice (CCJ) was
its sole female jurist,
Desiree Bernard, a Guyana-
born Caribbean woman of
many "firsts".
At 66, Madame
Justice Bernard, who qualified
as a solicitor back in 1964, has
the unique distinction among
women members of the
region's legal profession, of
having being the first to serve
in her native Guyana as:
The first female High
Court judge of the Supreme
Court in 1980 that was to be
followed by her meteoric rise
between 1992 and 2001 as the
first woman Chief Justice and
then first female Chancellor of


the Judiciary in the Caribbean
and entire Commonwealth in
2001.
Now she has taken her
place with distinction as the first
female judge of the CCJ, having
demitted office as Chancellor of
the Guyana Judiciary last month.
Bernard, who is single
and has an adopted daughter,
Carol Ann Bernard, has held
membership in a number of
regional and international
organizations and was a founding
Secretary of the Caribbean
Women's Association
(CARIWA); and also a former
President of the Organisation of
Commonwealth Caribbean Bar
Associations (OCCBA).
For her exceptional
contribution to the improvement
of the status of women and to
the development and practice of
law, Justice Bernard has received
a number of national awards,
among them the Cacique Crown


of Honour and the Order of
Roraima, Guyana's third and
second highest national
awards.
Sitting with her
under CCJ's President
Michael de la Bastide are the
following other judges of the
regional court:
Justices Rolston
Nelson of Trinidad and
Tobago, a former Appeal
Court Judge; Duke Pollard of
Guyana, an acknowledged
expert jurist in international
law and former Director of
the CARICOM Legislative
Drafting Facility; Justice
Adrian Saunders of St.
Vincent and the Grenadines,
a graduate of the Hugh
Wooding Law School who
chairs the St. Lucia Court
Connected Mediation Pilot
Project.
The two non-
Caribbean jurists, who are
to be robed in July when
they take up their duties
are: Professor David
Hayton of England, a
leading authority in the
United Kingdom and
Europe on the law of trusts;
and Professor Jacob Wit of
the Netherlands, who has
earned an international
reputation as organiser of,
or presenter at important
international legal
conferences in various
territories of the Dutch,
French and English-
speaking Caribbean.

Roelf Meyers, South African peace broker.


By Ruel Johnson
SOUTH African conflict
transformation consultant,
Mr. Roelf Meyers said that he
cannot pronounce on the situ-
ation in Guyana until he has
a proper chance to assess it.
He was at the time speaking
at a reception held in his honour
at Le Meridien Pegasus on Fri-
day night. Meyers is presently
in the country to facilitate sev-
eral conflict resolution work-
shops under a multi-donor initia-
tive backed by the United Na-
tions Development Programme
(UNDP) in Guyana.
During a brief address to the
gathering at the reception,
Meyers said that he was
honoured to be in Guyana to fi-
nally restart the project which
was to have gone off earlier in
the year.
"I was here in January dur-
ing the floods but then we


couldn't proceed. I am grateful
for the fact that I was allowed,
invited to come back a second
time," he said.
The retired South African
politician turned peace consult-
ant had high praises for former
President of South African and
leader of that country's anti-
apartheid movement, Nobel
Peace Prize Winner, Nelson
Mandela.
"I am here in Guyana," said
Meyers, "from the land of
Nelson Mandela. I say that be-
cause there is a message in it.
Nelson Mandela is the greatest
leader South Africa has ever seen
and I tend to think that he is one
of the greatest leaders the world
has ever seen during the twenti-
eth century."
Meyers said he would like
to able to share with Guyanese
the experiences he had in South
Africa dealing with the system
of apartheid. The consultant was

Africa's apartheid-era National
Party (NP), for which he, under
the leadership of F.W. de Klerk,
acted as chief negotiator with the
Mandela's African National
Congress's Cyril Ramaphosa to
dismantle the system.
"You can imagine that I
came from the opposition to
Nelson Mandela," said Meyers.
"I was," said Meyers, "part
of that structure that put him
[Mandela] in jail...But I was


also an individual who learnt t
he is the greatest human bei'
that I have ever come across
my life. The virtues of huma

Strick, an extraordinary talent
which had grown over the past
30 years, producing work that is
distinctive. She said that his out-
put is unique, with a brilliant
technique at his fingertips.
She observed that Strick's
pieces are in the National Col-
lection and private collections,
and many are the times he was
called upon to provide items for
heads of state and other impor-
tant visitors to Guyana.
"Seeking inspiration both
from without and within, his
search continues to uplift
through his endeavour and his
output," the National Gallery
Curator concludes in her
programme notes.
The Strick exhibition
continues at Castellani
House until May 7. (Raschid

Mr. Guyanese table talking about the

e's own experiences from the South
ny African experience."
any Meyers, in responding to a
ng. question from the press on
whether Guyana and [apartheid-
era] South Africa had any differ-
ences and/or parallels in their re-
spective situations, said:
"The situation between the
two countries is so different that
there are very few similarities or
things that one can directly relate
between Guyana and South
America."
However, he added that fol-
lowing from his research and ex-
perience in dealing with situations
of conflict across the world was
that there are certain universal
factors underlying each of them.
"There are certain phenom-
ena in areas of conflict that are
the same irrespective of what the
source of the conflict is. Despite
Ti the fact that we can't directly
translate the South African expe-
rience into Guyana's, there are
certain things in my mind that are
t fundamental in resolving conflict.
Those are, the question of trust

there is trust between the oppos-
ing parties, you can see a resolu-
tion; the question of ownership
of the problem, that it is not be-
ing sidelined and removed for
others to resolve...; and thirdly
the question of leadership par-
n) ties and politicians and civil so-
cieties and religious communi-
ties, all of them, have to show
leadership in resolving the situa-
tion."
Questioned to how he feels
about the recent disbandment of
South Africa's New National
Party, renamed from the National
Party in 1997, he said that it
should have happened a long
time ago.
"When the transition [of
power from the NP to the ANC]
arrived in 1994," said Meyers, "it
was sort of the end of the Na-
tional Party already. One could
never expect that the party of
apartheid could proceed in the
new South Africa unless it
changed itself into something
completely new. Because of the
lack of progress in that regard and
the resistance to transform the
party from inside. I left the party
in 1997 myself because I didn't
concur with the position of the
leadership of the party at that
stage. What is nowhappeningmjs.
jusi a normal Id.t Jhii Io etthink:."


In his remarks, UNDP Resi-
dent Representative, Dr.
Youssef Mahmoud said that it
was a privilege for the United
Nations to get together with
other international partners to
support the venture.
"For someone who just ar-
rived in your country, it has
been a tremendous learning ex-
perience. I am still learning how
to crawl, walk and run at the
same time but these days have
been tremendously helpful to
me."
Mahmoud said that since he
has been here he as learned two
primary things: one, that there
is more that unites Guyanese
than divides them; and that, to
him, there was a shared deter-
mination to address the politi-
cal, economic and social root
causes that divide the country
and which often manifest them-


selves along ethnic lines.
Mahmoud said that there is
a willingness to move away
from suspicion and distrust,
evidenced from the fact that the
major stakeholders were putting
aside their differences to sit
down around the table together
and talk as Guyanese.
"[This] is," said
Mahmoud, "a heartening
manifestation for me and the
United Nations will remain
committed to this process and
hopefully in the days and
weeks that follow, we will be
able to continue to support
the Ethnic Relations Commis-
sion in this noble endeavour."
Prime Minister Sam Hinds
- currently acting as President
in the absence of President
Jagdeo welcomed Meyers,
saying that he hoped the con-
sultant is helping Guyanese


think of some approaches to
closing the gaps that may be re-
maining between the country's
different peoples.
"One of miny concerns,"-said
Prime Minister Hinds, "in our
relationships [concerns] our
socialising. I got to many events
and still in Guyana I think a sig-
nificant issue is that most events
is usually largely of one group
or largely of the other group."
Mr. Hinds said that he
didn't think that it was that our
different groups deliberately ex-
clude each other; but that cultur-
ally people continue to stick to
their own kind.
"For me an important is-
sue for me in these last days
of becoming one Guyanese
people is how we can get
closer in socialising, how we
can socialise across the
boundaries some more."

KINGSTON, Jamaica, CMC
- The second staging of the
Jamaica International Track
& Field Invitational has once
again attracted numerous
track and field stars for this
year's edition on May 7 at the
National Stadium.
The local stars, led by Ja-
maican Olympic champion
Veronica Campbell and her team-
mates from the gold medal win-
ning sprint relay, Sherone
Simpson, Aleen Bailey and
Tanya Lawrence, will face the
starter in the sprints.
At the official launch of the
meet on Tuesday, Jamaica Ama-
teur Athletics Association
(JAAA) president Howard Aris
promised that the meet would
be better than last year, particu-
larly in organisational terms.
"We are going to do our ut-
most to make sure we improve
on what we did last year ... on
and off the track."
Jamaica's 400-metre Olym-
pic bronze medal team of
Novlene Williams, Michelle
Burgher, Nadia Davy and vet-
eran Sandie Richards are set to
vie for the 400-metre prize with
the Amerinan Olympie finalists
Monique Hennagan and Ja.-


maica-born Sanya Richards.
The quality in the
women's 100-metre hurdles
event sets up as the clash of

Asafa Powell, who placed fifth
in Athens and ranked number
one in the world last year, heads
the men's 100-metre field that
should include the outstanding
Kittitian Kim Collins, the reign-
ing world champion over the
distance.
Powell showed good form
recently with a wind-aided
10.08 seconds clocking last
weekend.
Teenaged sensation and
200-metre world junior


record holder Usain Bolt, who
ran a promising 20.51 at the
Seminole meet in Florida on
the weekend following a re-
turn from injury and unfit-
ness, will be closely watched
in the 200 metres.
The World junior record
holder in the half-lap sprint was
at the meet's launch on Tuesday
and will line up against the
Americans Coby Miller, the
event winner at last year's
championships, and Darvis
Patton, among others.
The Dominican Republic's
Olympic 400 hurdles champion

prove on his fourth place finish
in the flat 400 metres when he
once again tests his early season
form.

public star will meet the winner
of last year's one-lap race,
World Indoor silver medallist
Davian Clark and other Jamai-
can Olympic finalists Brandon
Simpson, and Michael
Blackwood.

into cultural and youth
development."
Minister Teixeira said sport
development required a
framework, a foundation,
performance and excellence.
She pointed out that young
people should not focus on
education and exclude sport.
The sport minister
announced that the ministry
would give youth clubs one piece
of sport equipment once they
showed that they had regular
activities with good attendance.
She urged sport associations
to pay attention to accountability
and good governance.
"If you fail to do this, you
have failed the young people."
She called on the private
sector to support sport
development, noting that the
donor community has finally
begun to assist in that area.
Minister Teixeira urged all
Guyanese to support and become
involved in the preparation for
Cricket World Cup 2007, which
she called a monumental task
with great returns.
Acting President, Samuel


Hinds, presented the awards to
Sportsman-of-the-Year Sylvan
Gardner and Sportswoman-of-
the-Year Gwendolyn 'The
Stealth Bomber' O'Neil.
The runner-up
sportsman was Ransford
Goodluck and the runner-up
Sportswoman world class
runner Marian Burnette.

A PUNCTURE in the 19th lap
could not prevent Alonzo
Greaves from winning yet
another 35-lap race at the
National Park, yesterday.
Greaves crossed the finish


line in one hour 23 minutes 21
seconds to cart off the
Schoolboys & Novices feature
race in the meet, sponsored by
Eastman Cycles & Accessories
of India, followed closely by
Toney Simone who clocked the
same time.


Darren Allen rode in third by
himself, with Gerald Fowler
finishing fourth, just ahead of
Jaikarran Sukhai in fifth and
Shane Boodram sixth.
Fowler claimed four prime
prizes, Greaves two and
Boodram and Colin Barker one


each.
With seven laps to go,
Boodram-broke away, with
Greaves connecting with the
main bunch at the start of that
lap.
In the very next lap,
Greaves moved ahead of the

main bunch, with Allen closely
following him.
Two laps later, the three-
man third bunch caught up with
Allen and Greaves, and halfway
through, the bunch connected
with Boodram.
In the last lap, Greaves and
Simone surged ahead, with Allen
in tow not far behind. Greaves
out-sprinted Simone down the
homestretch to the finish.
Earlier, Geron Williams won
the juveniles ten-lapper in 27
minutes 18.87 seconds,
establishing himself as the regular
winner of the event, with former
boss Judah Klass riding in third,
behind Chris Persaud. The prime
prizes went to Romel
Bhagwandin and Klass.
Williams started the day
winning the 12-14 years three-
lapper in 8:43.31 minutes, with
Persaud again second and Javid
Mohamed third. Persaud won the
prime prize.
The Veterans Under-45 five-
lap race went to Kennard Lovell,
who again triumphed over
Linden Blackman in the
continuing rivalry, in 14:39.12
minutes, with the third place
going to Virgil Jones who claimed
the prime prize.
Bochal Samaroo was the


Upright champion winning in
13:35.53 minutes, with Nigel
Jacobs finishing second and
Alfal Vanderhyden third. The
prime prize went to Jacobs.
In the BMX races,
Vanderhyden won the Boys'
Open over three laps, followed
by Mitchroy George in second
and Ryan Gaspar third.
Enzo Matthews again won
the 12-14 years race over three
laps, with Christopher Holder
second and Johnatan Fagundes
third.
Fagundes had already won
the 9-12 three-lapper, with
Romario Bhagwandin second
and Hausanni Van Lewin third,
while Jonathan De -Abreu
claimed the first prize of the 6-
9 race over two laps. The
second place went to Tariq
Baksh and third to Emanuel
Klass.
Ashley Ali was again the
champion of the Girls' 6-12
race, followed by Sheri Ann De
Abreu.
Shameer Baksh of
Universal Auto Sales &

of Eastman cycles, presented
the prizes, with winners

ha'e been follow
ing the last Itwo
weeks where we
have been talking about de-
junking your mind. It's been
helpful to me to be able to
write these articles because I
,am also guilty of storing
negative information and not'
dealing with issues that affect
my personal wellbeing. So
let's tackle some serious is-
sues this week, together.


FORGIVE AND
FORGET
No matter "hat the circum-
stances, no matter how much
you may feel aggrieved by
somedhung someone did to you,


or the circumstances of your life
up to this present moment, or
something that you have done
in the past that you feel guilty
or bad about, learning to forgive
yourself and others is the only
way, I repeat the only way, that
your life will move forward in
a positive direction.If I could
cet you to believe that \ou
could simply write all of the
hurts dow n on a piece of paper
and set them alight and the>
would be gone, it would be the
best thing )ou ever believed in.


It is in the simple action of
wanting to feel better that en-
ables you to summon the en-
ergy to do so..

HOLDING ON TO
ISSUES
I was taught that something
that happens on the emotional
level can manifest itself on the
physical level if not released. It
can take between 24 to 12
months for an emotiouonal trauma
of any rtpe, esen something so
small that you may not think it


I RECENTLY recorded a mini-series on oral cancer at NCN Television. Among the major
points I made was that cancers of the mouth, like all cancers, are irregular and abnormal
cell growths that can build up into tissue called tumours. Cells of different shapes and
function make up various parts of the body, such as the skin, heart, lungs and bones. All
cells reproduce themselves by dividing: normal growth and repair of body tissue takes place
in this orderly manner. But with cancer this normal process turns chaotic.
When cell division is not orderly, abnormal grow th takes place and these can either be benign
or malignant. Malignant
rumours are cancers. The\ can 40

Immediate treatment should follow the diagnosis of cancer. Surgery is used in man\ cases to

Radiation therapy is an alternative to surgery and is used to particularly destroy a tumor that

radiation in some cases to slo% do% n or control the gro\v.h of the tumour cell, Becaju-e the drugs

Cancer kills a person basically by disrupting the normal functions of a \ital organ which it
ailacks Sometimes the %icmni dies from internal haemorrhage when the cancer reaches a major
artery or \ein.
The onl. good news here according to the V'orld Health Organisation, is that around
80 per cent of all oral cancers are preventable. The most frequent causes of oral cancer are

has impacted on you, to be-
come a physical or mental dis-
ease. In all of my work helping
people to de-junk, in eight out
of 10 cases, they are always able
.to pinpoint the traumatic event
..a'. most likely was at the root
itiher their physical or men-
tal problems, or the onset of
beginning to hold on to too
many things.
I recently went to a one-day
workshop on how to de-clutter
your life, where there were
about 50 participants who had
issues with holding on to things,
were unhappy with their current
lifestyle and wanted to make
some changes. As the discussion
started on some of the more
emotional issues that causes us
to hold on to unpleasant memo-
ries or the material manifesta-
tions of these events, I could feel
that one of the participants, an
older woman in her 60s, was re-
ally holding on to something
very deeply that was causing
her great pain. After I finished
that session, I went up to her
and asked her what it was that


sne was unwilling to let go or.




.


As it turned out, she was put
up for adoption at birth and to
this day found it impossible to
forgive her mother for this ac-
tion. My words of advice, and
I believe them sincerely from
my heart and from all of my life
experiences, was that the only
way she could ever get over that
feeling was to send love to her
mother and let go of the anger
and personal feelings of unwor-
thiness that kept her stuck in the
past and feeling physically un-
well. A few days later, I re-
ceived a most heartfelt letter
saying that she had really taken
my advice to heart and was
working on letting go and knew
it was the right to do.
In another situation, some-
one whose home I helped to
de-clutter held on to things that
her parents would not allow her
as a child, to the point that it
limited access to so many areas
of her home that she was forced
to live in little pockets of space
that would enable her to do only
%ery basic things. She had be-
comie a serial shopper, accord-
ing to her own admission, and
spent a good deal of time mak-
ing purchases from charity
shops that didn't cost very
much at the time, but over years
of collecting, were worth thou-
.. jndJs.gf pounds. Entire rod'ni
i)ruWre filled.4roim rloor-W4ceiliini


with plastic bags and the situa-
tion seriously impacted on her
ability to socialise and live com-
fortably in her home.
She had grown up as the
only child of older parents who
were devoutly religious and
very strict in her upbringing. Her
father was disabled and couldn't
work. Money was limited, and
her mother had to look after her
father, so as a child she was re-
sponsible for many chores and
often had to keep herself occu-
pied with very little. At some
point in her childhood she de-
veloped a respiratory problem
and had to go to hospital. When
she returned, she was more
closely guarded and limited in
the physical and social activi-
ties she was allowed to do. She
developed a passion for music,
and used the radio to comfort
her and keep her company. For
some reason, her mother re-
stricted her use of the radio, and
even years after her death, she
was angry and rebelling against
her mother for all the things she
was not able to have as a child.
Who suffered as a result


make you feel bad.
Everyone can relate to the
feelings of being happy, in
love, content, excited, sad,
frightened, angry or jealous
about someone or something
in their life. Positive emo-
tions like love, happiness,
contentment or excitement,
make you feel good on the
physical, mental and emo-
tional levels. These feelings
indicate that you like or en-
joy the experience and desire
to have more of it or some-
thing similar. Our natural
state of being is to really want
to feel good, so it is always
good to draw upon your vast
bank of knowledge of the
types of experiences that are
likely to make you feel good
and choose them at every
chance you get.

A SENSE OF
iH-HSPfCTIVE
Try making a list of w which
people, situations or things
make you happy, give you-a
feeling of contentment, excite-
ment or enthusiasm, or really
motivate you. Which people,,
situations or things do you re-
ally love? Once you have made

Sunday Chronicte-ApriI.t7-,-.2005


Jeans aren't just for week-
ends anymore. In fact, den-
ims are becoming the new
"little black dress" that
women can wear almost any-
where with the right accesso-
ries. The key is which acces-
sories. It's fun to wear jeans
to cocktail parties and restau-
rants, but after a while it may
feel like you're wearing the
same thing all the time. If
you're hard pressed for ideas
on what to wear with your
jeans, we have some.

TUNIC TIME
Tunics are quickly moving
from the runway to the "real
world" for the rest of the
women in America who weigh
more than 90 pounds. Tunic-
style tops and dresses can cre-
ate a dressy and slimming look
over long, straight-leg jeans
paired with sexy heels. Even
though "bohemian chic" is in
right now, tunics are also offered
in sleek knit and slinky jersey
styles that can be flattering on
the right figure. If you want to
try a tunic, remember this:
Your tunic should hit you
mid-thigh. Anything longer will
create a dumpy look.

Avoid empire-waist
styles especially if you're
curvy.
Make sure you wear
jeans that are flat in front to
avoid bumps and lumps.

"TOP" PRIORITY
Instead of a T-shirt, pair
your jeans with a flirty top or
camisole in chiffon or satin.
Camisoles are versatile because
they look great on their own or
under a colorful V-neck cardi-
gan. Embellished tops and camis
are a great way to add a touch


of glamour to your outfit and
don't forget about the pretty
floral prints that are trendy
right now.
Not into camisoles? Off-
the-shoulder tops can be just as
sassy and stylish. Pair your
preferred piece with layers of
thin chains around your neck for
the finishing touch to this "over
the top" evening outfit. If you
do wear a camisole:
Wear a well-fitted strap-
less bra to avoid having your
straps hang out.
Look for a cami that has
a built-in bra.
Less is more when it
comes to exposure. Look for
tops that cover the waist and
belly area, not to mention your
behind. Plumber's butt can kill
any outfit.

JACKET REQUIRED
Jeans and a jacket could
there be a more classic and so-
phisticated combination? But
can it be sexy? You bet. This
season's jacket has been nipped
and tucked for a new
"shrunken" look. Sport this
jacket with a pair of cropped
jeans for the Sarah Jessica
Parker Gap-ad look. If short
jackets make you "shrink" in
terror don't despair. Longer
styles, tapered at the waist, can
be combined with skinny belts
and full-length jeans for a chic
look that can be worn any-
where.
Tips on wearing the right
jacket:
Wear a flouncy camisole
that hangs below a short jacket
to cover your rear end if you're
self-conscious about your butt.
Wear a vest under your
jacket instead of a top it's sexy
and up to date.
Look for classically
styled jackets in updated fabrics
such as brocades.

ACCESSORISE,
ACCESSORISE,
ACCESSORISE
Dressed-up jeans call for
dressed-up accessories. Sexy
heels not only lengthen your
legs, but they make any outfit
look more polished. A beaded or
sequined clutch handbag adds
the perfect amount of sparkle
for any daytime or evening oc-
casion. And in terms of jewelry,
when you're wearing great jeans,
lots of bling is okay. Don't be
afraid to load up on a few gold


cuff bracelets or chunky neck-
laces. If you want to boost your
accessory usage:
Make sure your jeans are
long enough to cover your high
heels. Jeans that are too short
can look awkward.
Silk scarves can be worn
as a belt, fastened loosely
around your neck or tied to the
handles of your handbag for a
"Parisian" look.
Dress up your jeans with
the metallic accessories that are
so in right now. villageg)

ones you love?
How often do you feel contented?
How often during the day are you enthusiastic?
How often are you motivated?
How often do you think about all of the things that make
you feel good?
Making an effort to incorporate more of these things into your
life will make you feel better more of the time. You have the expe-
riences, so use them to the maximum.
Negative emotions such as sadness, anger, jealousy, fear,
hatred or guilt certainly make you feel bad on the emotional
level, and often on the physical level as well. If you hold on
to these feelings and think about them and all the things that
may have caused them, you go back to reliving an experience
that happened in the past which you can't do anything about
and doesn't feel good. This experience is also the basis for your
judgement of all other experiences of a similar nature until things
can get really out of proportion.
Adverse physical reactions such as high blood pressure, head-
aches, or other nervous- related diseases, often accompany the
severe stress that negative emotions can have on your body.
These are intended as a wake-up call to get you to take action
to sort your emotions out.

CHANCELLOR
DESIREE BERNARD


Gibson to act on behalf of the
.defendant/appellant was ever
filed.
As a result, Mr. Ramson
submitted that Mr. Gibson
had no locus stand in the
matter and that the filing of
the Notice of Appeal was a
nullity.
In his submission in sup-
port of his preliminary point,
Mr. Ramson referred to Order
6 Rule 1 of the Rules of the
High Court, which stated:
"Every solicitor who shall
be engaged in any action shall be
bound to conduct the same if


desired by the plaintiff or defen-
dant, as the .case maybe, for
whom he shall be engaged, un-
less allowed by the Court or a
judge to cease from acting
therein, until-the final determi-
nation-of the action whether in
the court of first'instance or on
appeal".
Reacting .to'Mr. Ramson's
contention, Justice Bernard de-
clared: "His :ofitention is that
a solicitor's (now an attorney-
at-law) authority to act contin-
ues unless revoked until the fi-
nal determination of the action
which includes up to the hear-
ing of an appeal.
"Order 6 Rule 2 provides
for a party .changing his solici-
tor upon filing notice of such
change in the Registry and serv-
ing a copy of such notice upon
the apposite party, but until
such notice is filed and served,
the former solicitor shall be con-
sidered the solicitor of the party
unless the Court or a judge shall
direct otherwise," Justice Ber-
nard had said.
She however explained: "At
this juncture, I would like to
state that our Order 6 Rules 1
and 2 are similar in content
though not in wording to the
English Order 62 (a) Rule 1. It


is to the effect:
."A party to any cause or.
matter who sues 6r defends by
a solicitor may change his solici-'
tor without an order for ,that
purpose. but, unless and until
notice of the change is'filed and
copies of the notice are lodged.
and served :in. accordance with
this rule,, the former solicitor
shall, subject to ules 5 and 6,
be considered the'solicitor of the
party until the final conclusion.
of the .cause or matter,
whether in the High Court or the
Court of Appeal", .
;Senior Counsel agreed that
there is no specific provision in
the Court of Appeal Rules re-
quiring a Notice of Appeal to
be signed by an attorney-at-law
who is authorised, but relied on
'Order 6 Rule 1 which binds a
solicitor authorised up to the
determination of an appeal.
On the other hand, Mr.
Gibson contended that the
High Court and Court of
Appeal proceedings are
separate and distinct, and
referred to Order H Rule 1 (1)
of the Court of Appeal Rules
which states that all appeals

ways hope...."
As to what she plans doing
with all the free time she now
has on her hands, 'Bea' said:


"I'm thinking seriously about
going on a holiday...I want to
go so many places, but for the
moment, I think I'll settle for
Jamaica and where I have sis-

Just thinking about it
makes her all excited, she
says. It would be the first time
she is travelling abroad.


ITA DAY


By Linda Rutherford


IT'S ONE of those rare
occasions when you
know that something is
amiss but for the life of
you just can't seem to put
your finger on it. Then a col-
league makes a chance re-
mark. And immediately ev-
erything begins to fall into
place.
It's the familiar sight of
'Bea', or absence thereof, is
what is so
wrong with I miss th
this picture.
That and the were like


metallic rattle talked; we
of china on 'Auntie Be
china as she Auntie Be
made the \- Beatrice
rounds of the
editorial and
other departments, dispensing
the usual mid-morning 'cuppa',
whether it was tea or coffee, and
again at mid-afternoon which is
when the creative side iof her re-
ally came alive.
"For this 'Bea', in- spife'of
her waspish tongue, certainly
knows her way around the
kitchen when it comes to re-
freshments, and often treated
those in her charge to generous
helpings of one or the other of
her latest creations, invariably
,made of a potpourri of fresh
fruits.
She could also be depended
upon, because of her fearless-
ness, to raise key issues with
management when others were
reluctant to do so, and was par-
ticularly vocal at staff and an-
nual general meetings.


But after 18 long years of
service to the company, Beatrice
Meredith, our same 'Bea', has
finally decided to call it a day.
Her last day at work was on
February 28, 19 days after cel-
ebrating her 60th birthday.
Taking a trip down memory
lane with the Sunday Chronicle
last Friday, 'Bea' said she ini-
tially started out as a cleaner
but was promoted about a year
after to the position of pantry
maid, which post she held until


e staff a great lot becau
my children. We laugh
e'd chat. Some would
a'; others 'Mums'".
Meredith

she retired.
As pantry maid, her job
was to wait on senior staff,
which brought her into close
contact with not only those at
the managerial level, but mem-
bers of the Board and overseas
guests as well.
"I've worked with several
directors. Every year, as the
Board changes, I meet with
different directors and differ-
ent chairmen. I enjoyed
working with them," she
said.
With time, it got so that she
knew their likes and dislikes;
such as who liked what when,
and who just had to have some-
thing sweet to munch on after
having had their lunch. She also
picked up a thing or two from
them that she came to find very


useful, particularly those having
to do with the way one ought,
or ought not, to conduct oneself
in public.
"I've learnt so much from
being among these people in high
bracket... the way they
speak...the way they carry and
conduct themselves... they gave
me inspiration in life to move
on.
What was particularly
heartening, she said, was that
the rapport she had with her su-
periors remained
se the\ the same even
se he outside of work.
Wed; we "The managers
call me I worked with
were always pleas-
ant; we may have
had our ups and
downs, but it was
always without
rancour; we always kept a level
head and worked as a team.
Even the directors....they didn't
only know you at work, but
outside of work as well. When-
ever we happen to meei me on
the road, they would s".op and
pass the time of da) wi h me
she recalled.
These days, however,
though she's a bit more re-
laxed now that she no longer
has to watch the clock, she
yet feels a certain sense of
loss.
"I miss the staff a great lot
because they were like my chil-
dren. We laughed; we talked;
we'd chat. Some would call me
'Auntie Bea'; others 'Mums'.
In my quiet moments, I some-
times sit down and reflect....but
I try to console myself that as

IRUN,


STORY, RUN

I don't know what to do. I love my fiance with all my
heart, but I am beginning to fear our relationship is
hanging from an ever-thinning thread. I've come to
suspect that my future mother-in-law not only uses illegal
drugs, but deals them as well. My fiance says this is none
of my concern and I'm simply looking for a reason to
dislike her.
I'm afraid even to be at her house. What if she's
arrested and I'm present? What about our future children?
My fiance asked me to make her part of the wedding
planning, but when I bring it up, she quickly changes the
subject. However, in front of him she'll lecture me on
making an effort to fit into his family.

TORY


Tory, your future mother-in-law will be a major f
part of your life and the lives of your children for
many years. You have every reason to be
concerned, and no reason to believe this is a
problem you can get past. It is a problem likely I
to get worse over time.
Do you want your children calling this woman
"grandma"? She sounds like the sort of person who would
throw you under the wheels of the train when she gets in
trouble. "The drugs aren't mine, they are Tory's."
Your boyfriend hopes you will marry into this
problem, and then you will both be trying to cope with
his mother. The only solution which is completely
within your power is to run.

PRESERVING OUR

LITERARY HERITAGE



PETER



RUHOMON


by Petamber Persaud

ON JANUARY 1,
1880, a male child
was born in the
East who made
history by becoming the first
Guyanese of Indian ancestry
to write the history of East In-
dians in British Guiana.
He was the son of John
Ruhomon who was a qualified
sick nurse and dispenser oper-
ating among the Albion, Port
Mourant and Smythfield sugar
plantations. The father, who
was conversant in English,
Hindi, Tamil and Arabic, also
owned and operated a drug store
in New Amsterdam.
Peter Ruhomon was the
nephew of Moses Luckhoo
who produced a clan of out-
standing legal practitioners.
Poet, journalist, and career
civil servant, Peter Ruhomon
was born in Berbice, in the
township of New Amsterdam
that produced other notable writ-
ers like Edgar Mittelholzer, Wil-
son Harris, N.E. Cameron, Slade
Hopkinson.
Ruhomon grew up in and
became an integral part of that
period in our history that saw
the flowering of East Indian in-
tellectualism. He witnessed the
formation of a number of
organizations to oversee the wel-
fare of East Indians such as Brit-
ish Guiana East Indian Associa-
tion, 1916, initiated by his elder
brother Joseph, The East Indian
Young Men's Society (EIYMS),
1919, and The Balak Sahaita
Mandalee (child welfare soci-
ety), 1936. Just as important
were the East Indian Cricket
Club, 1914, The Corentyne Lit-
erary & Debating Society, 1937
and The British Guiana Dra-
matic Society.
'Indian Opinion', the official
organ of The British Guiana East
Indians Association, launched in
1916 became the main tool of In-
dian intellectualism.
And Ruhomon made good
use of this outlet for his opin-
ions.
Ruhomon was educated pri-
vately and at the All Saints An-
glican School in New
Amsterdam. At age 16,
he joined the Civil Service in
Georgetown as a Clerical Assis-
tant in the Marshall's Office. He
later went on to serve in the Ju-
dicial Service, the Government
Savings Bank and the Treasury
before retiring in 1940. He also
held the post. of Registrar of
Births and Deaths.
In 1913, he married Lilian
Albertha Yearwood and later
settled in Upper Charlotte Street
within shouting distance of N.E.
Cameron.
Ruhomon was a dedicated
church worker. This was re-
flected in his poetry, 'Jehovah's
praise to sing' and by becoming
secretary to. Susamachar, The
East Indian Young Men's Soci-
ety. Susamachar, a Hindi word
meaning Good News, was part
of the Methodist body.
For his dedication and work,


PETER RUHOMON


Peter Ruhomon was honoured
by becoming the first holder of
the Yates Gold Medal awarded
by J. A. Veerasammy to per-
petuate the name of Rev. H. M.
Yates, founder of the EIYMS.
He was also a founder/mem-
ber of the British Guiana Liter-
ary Society launched by
Cameron in 1930 which included
Rev. Dingwall and Rev. Pollard.
According to J. W.
Chinapen, Ruhomon was part of
another writers' group in the
1930s that included Ramcharitar-
Lall and Sycliffe Armogan.
Ruhomon edited'a column
called 'Indian Intelligence' in the
Sunday Chronicle during the
1930s, gathering information and
motivation for his magnum opus.
In 1947, he published 'Cen-
tenary History of the East Indi-
ans in British Guiana, 1838 -
1938', his life's work, which he
started in 1930. This seminal
work was reprinted in 1988.
The author in his introduc-
tion said, "as I peered into the
musty records of the past, the
drama slowly unfolded before
my eyes in all its luridness and
vividness of details; with the
tragic happenings that have punc-
tuated the course of our long and
chequered history, our aspira-
tions and strivings through cloud
and sunshine, through hopes and
despairs, through joys and sor-
rows; the influences that oper-
ated to shape our life as a com-
munity; and present position in
which we now find ourselves and
our prospects in the great future


that lies ahead of us':"
Sir Gordon Lethlim, the then
governor of British Guiana, in
the forward of the book, said
"the compilation of the histori-
cal facts recorded in his book is
the result of praiseworthy em-
ployment of much of his' leisure
time."
This quasi-academic work
was a significant contribution to
the lacuna of history written by
our own people. Another tour
de force was 'The E\olution of
the Negro' written by Cameron
and published some years earlier.
Ruhomon's poems came to
public attention in 'An Anthol-
ogy of Local Indian Verse' edited
by C.E.J. Ramcharitar Lalla in
1934 and printed by The Argosy
Company. His poems found
their way into many other jour-
nals and anthologies' such as
'Kyk-over-Al', 'Thiemes of
Song', 'Sun is a Shapely Fire'
and 'Heritage'. Ruhomon's po-
etry worshipped, nature and ex-
tolled the tene of Christianity.
Although a professing Christian,
he still hang on to Hinduism, in-
voking 'the tenth avatar of
Krishna' and 'Manu's beautiful
idea of the original debt which
implies that every man is a born
debtor and must discharge his
debt by doing good deed' in an
article published in 'Indian Opin-
ion'.
And Peter Ruhomon paid
his debt to society as Chinapen
claimed "such was Ruhomon's
credo which makes him a true
patriot of Guyana."


FROM PAGE ONE
the opening sermon at an an-
nual conference; the first to
be appointed to a major met-
ropolitan charge which was in
1989, about a year after her
first husband, Carey Tyler
died, and she was sent to take
over the helm at Walker
Temple in Los Angeles; and
the first west of Mississippi to
be made presiding elder.
And even though she will
try to convince you otherwise,
there is a general feeling abroad
that she will, as has been her
wont over the years, rise to the
occasion, taking in her stride the
many challenges that may come
her way with the new job.
Key among issues with
which she will have to grapple,
it has been said, is widespread
poverty in many of the countries
now in her charge, and poor
membership and even poorer fi-
nances at several churches within
the 16th Episcopal District.
The 16th Episcopal District
comprises Guyana; Suriname;
the Windward Islands
(Dominica, Grenada, Martinique,
St Lucia, St Vincent and The
Grenadines) The Dominican Re-
public (Santo Domingo and
Haiti): London; Amsterdam;
Cuba; Jamaica and the Virgin Is-
lands.
But, as she told the Sunday
Chronicle while here last month
for the Guyana/Suriname Annual
Conference: "I have no illusions
that I am the 'Great Black Hope'
to the churches in Guyana or
any other place, but I do know
that God has put me here to do
something, and I will do what I
can."
And, to quote her colleague,
the Rev Kelvin Calloway of the
Second AME Church in Los An-'
geles, California: "She's up to
the challenges; these will be
minute compared to the chal-
lenges she's already faced."
According to the Los Ange-
les Times from which this vote
of confidence was cited,
Calloway was Tyler-Guidry's
campaign manager the last time
she made a bid for the post of
bishop, which was last year dur-
ing the 47th Session of the AME
General Conference. She had
made two earlier tries, namely in
1996 and 2000 at the 45th and
46th General Conference respec-
tively.
According to the Bishop,
who turns 68 in August, it is at
these General Conferences,
which are held every four years,
that the officers who head the
various departments are elected.
"Bishops arc elected; new laws
are made; existing ones are
amended and that kind of thing,"
she said.
As head of the 16th Episco-
pal District, her job is to super-
vise all the churches that fall un-
der its purview, which means
she needs to be abreast of ev-
erything pertaining to their day-
to-day running;. al ellias t wVhit

job is to administer the work; to
see that the discipline and doc-
trine and policy of the AME are
carried out in our work in the
churches. I take reports at least
once a year in each annual con-
ference and make assignments of
pastors to the congregation they
serve."
Born and raised in Jackson,
Mississippi in southern USA,
Bishop Tyler-Guidry, who holds
a first degree in business and eco-
nomics, is said to have made it
known since she was eight that
she wanted to become a mission-
ary, and had begun teaching Sun-
day School as early as 13.
Asked what could have in-
spired a young girl like her to as-
pire to such an awesome calling,
she said:
"First of all, I am a child of
the Church. I was born into the
church. My grand-mother was
one of the founders of our little
home church [the Bonner Insti-
tutional AME Church] in Jack-
son, Mississippi."
As such, she said, she was
very active in the church from a
very early age, whether as a
member of the choir, the
Women's Missionary Society, or
an office bearer.
She made the point, how-
ever, that there is no simple way
of explaining the call to ministry,
as it can differ from person to
person.
"In the Black church, we be-
lieve that the call for ministry is
the call of God. And that by
God's miraculous powers, and
the Holy Spirit, He calls per-
sons to minister; not everybody
to the same ministry, but some
of us (to) the preaching minis-
try which could lead and d6es
for most people to pastoral
ministry."
She herself was 36 and had
already had all six of her children
when she would finally heed the
call. "In 1973, 1 felt that urging
and calling in my own life, and,
like most people who feel a call
of God, resisted."
A decision that is as daunt-
ing as it is intriguing, Bishop
Tyler-Guidry said:
"It's an awesome thing...to
believe that God is calling you
to stand. It's a life and death
spositi'dri...be.'ehmt'e' 6u:ite'ltly'

those congregations. This she
does by way of a cabinet of key
church officials called the Pre-
siding Elders Council, which is
made up of the presiding elder
of each of the 94 churches in her
charge.
"They are my assistants;
they are the people who keep
me immediately informed and
who have the authority to act on
my behalf in my absence. My


I



I


It's not something that you can
come to lightly. And so I an-
swered the call on my life in
1973."
It was not the first time that
she would feel the urge, she said.
"It was not the first time that I
knew God was calling me. But
it was the last time that I knew
that I would do this or die,
whether physically or spiritu-
ally. I knew that this was some-


thing I had to do....and I have
never looked back."

WOMEN IN THE
CHURCH
As to what life was like for.
her back then, in light of the fact
that she was entering a male-ori-
ented field, the Bishop said:
"In 1973, when I entered
the ministry, I was the first
woman to enter the itinerant
ministry in my annual confer-
ence. There were women... but

appointment would come some
seven to 10 years later.
"And then it gradually
grew... Bishops would begin to
appoint females: one here, one
there, until now, I rank probably
about 40 across the connectional
church, I believe, counting the
Reverend Dorothy Morris and
those who have passed on."
In 2000, the church elected
its first female bishop, in the
Right Reverend Dr Vashti
Murphy McKenzie, currently
Presiding Prelate of the 13th


Right Reverend Carolyn Tyler-
many well-wishes
welcome service held in her
ster's AME Church on New
hoto by Cullen Bess-

Episcopal District. In 2004, two
more were elected, this being
herself and the Right Reverend
Sarah Frances Davis. who cur-
rently heads the 18th Episcopal
District.
"So now we are three out of
20, which is a good number
when you consider that some
other denominations that also
elect Bishops have not electll
women," Bishop Tyler-Guid v
said.
Asked p.'cfl'.,iH abouttr-
kinds of challenges sh- may ha


encountered over the years in
her climb to success, her initial
response was that they were no
different to those faced by
women in any other profession,
and one just had to take them in
their stride.
"In the Church for instance,"
she said, "a man could enter the
ministry at least in the days
when I started and he would
be sent to a small church and the
next year he'd be promoted and
given a bigger church.
"Whereas for women.... I
stayed at my first church for
six years...and even though
the Bishop thought he would
promote me, those who had
his ears and knew what he
was about to do, persuaded
him not to do that. A year
later, I found out that I was
supposed to have been sent to
another church which was giv-
ing a promotion.
"The other thing is that
when you are assigned to a con-
gregation, you can't always be
sure that the congregation would
meet you with open arms and
receive you as their pastor. My
very first church... when I went,
the officer said to me: 'Well,
Reverend, we don't know how
this community is going to re-
ceive a woman preacher; we're
surrounded by Baptists, and
they don't believe in women.'"
This was in Indio, at the
same run-down church in the


is for that reason, I think, by the
grace of God, that I'm at this
place today."

MAKING GOOD
MONEY!
Asked what other career
choice was open to her, had she
not turned to ministry, and she
jokingly replied:
"I was a banker; Yeah, man!
I was making good money! I was
in a position where I was help-
ing our bank to convert from
hand-written reports to the
computer. This was back in the
mid-60s...the computers were
coming into their own at the
time....we had computers in
those days in a big huge room...
they were as tall as this ceiling
and the room had to be kept
cold in order to regulate the com-
puters. We did the conversion on


They were talking about
spreading the gospel and how
people came to know Jesus as
a result of their mission work.
And, so I thought: 'I can do
that' But I got married fairly
early; we started our family;
and so God gave us our own
mission field for many a
years."
On the question of some of
the developments she would like
to see taking place here during
her tenure, she said:
"I must be honest; my total
focus is on the congregation in
each of the conferences that I am
responsible for. In each confer-
ence we have been able to estab-
lish some programme that will
assist the churches ...Our
churches are a reflection of the
communities in which they are
located.

THE UNRELIABLE




WEATHER


Keith David

IN LIGHT of what we
discussed last week, it
becomes fitting that we
review some of the
components of our biosphere
which have historically, func-
tionally and significantly
hampered regular cyclic
rhythms of weather, and has
therefore now become inte-
gral variables in many cli-
mate systems.
First on the list is vegeta-
tion, plants or the forests. This
I believe is of greatest impor-
tance when it comes to gaff in
Guyana and the rest of the
Tropics; where conservationists
and the protagonists of sustain-
able development have until re-
cently, restricted their focus.
In spite of evidence which
has survived decades of
scrutiny and have addressed the
significant impacts by solar and
geophysical variables on climate
change and irregular weather
occurrences, we see that over
the last 50 years the focus has
strongly shifted towards forest
preservation. The reality of any
argument is often not premised
on the prevailing effects of the
changing nature of forests, but
rather the projected or
anticipated changes and
correlated probable effects in
light of prevailing trends in the
destruction or removal of the
earth's forest cover. Such now
persist greatly within the
tropics.
But as I look at the issues,
I considered the pro-conserva-


tion articles I wrote some years
ago and I am therefore reminded
that the concerns for stable or
predictable global and regional
climatic occurrences which im-
pact on our survival as an inte-
grated network of societies,
hinge significantly on numerous
components quite representa-
tive of the varied disciplines of
academic pursuit.
My only goal at this
point, however, is simply to
outline the direct and indi-
rect as well as the short to
long term relevance of forests
and vegetation cover to cli-
matic patterns; whatever they
may be and with the varied
changes which has become
characteristic of our genera-
tion.
Firstly, we will assume that
following the complex interac-
tion between climate and vegeta-
tion specifically, and therefore
after the formation of the cyclic
interaction between climate and
vegetation in the beginning, we
see that over the short and me-
dium term there is a greater im-
pact on climate by the extent
and health of vegetation cover.
And therefore, over the long


term where climate changes are
part of a natural cyclic variation,
climate has the greatest and ul-
.timate impact on the emergence,
existence and health of vegeta-
tion or forests.
When compared to
landmasses, oceans have a far
greater capacity to retain solar
radiation, and as such are
manipulated by solar influxes to
a lesser degree. If this planet
was all water or if one is to
look at the weather conditions
over the large water bodies, one
would observe the stability and
almost homogeneity of weather
over the oceans. It is this unique
property that vegetation brings
to the landmasses which gain
and loose heat rapidly; and
therefore contributes to the
highly dynamic weather
systems.
In the end, areas with
much vegetation cover are
cooler at the cost of being the
reservoirs for much of the
water vapour passed into the
atmosphere through the pro-
cess of evapo-transpiration,
primarily.
To be continued...

shall be by way of
rehearing and shall be
brought by notice signed by
the appellant or his legal
representative.
He submitted, too, that the
legal representative need not be
the lawyer who represented the
appellant in the court below.
He referred to the case of Cal-
low-v- Young (1886) L/T/ 543
which deals with service of an
order on a solicitor after judg-
ment, and Fernandes -v- Da
Silva (1927) LRBG, 87 in sup-
port of his contention that
where there are no rules the
Court of Appeal can formulate
its own rules.
Referring to Mr. Gibson's
submissions, Justice Bernard
had said, "Having examined
Order 6 Rule 1 of the High
Court Rules which seems to
have been adapted from Order
62 (a) Rule (1) of the English
Rules, I am of the view that a
solicitor (now attorney-at-law)
having been authorised to act on
behalf of a party to an action
continues to do so until the final
determination of the action in
the Court of Appeal unless he


is discharged or another solicitor
or attorney is appointed by the
requisite notice of change of
solicitor.
"The words 'whether in
the court of first instance or
an appeal' at the end of Or-
der 6 Rule 1 unequivocally
suggests that a solicitor's ob-
ligation to represent a party
to an action continues up to
the appellate stage. My view
on this is reinforced by a pe-
rusal of the English Rule 62
(a) Rule 1 which is even more
specific as it states "whether
in the High Court or the
Court of Appear'l", the judg-
ment disclosed.
Justice of Appeal Bernard,
as she then was, added: "It can-
not be disputed that a party can
change his solicitor or attorney
in our context at any time dur-
ing the pendency of an action,
but the relevant rules must be
complied with, i.e. Order 6 Rule
2 a notice of change must be
filed in the Registry and service
effected on the other parties to
the action.
"If this is not done the so-
licitor or attorney on record


continues to be regarded as the
solicitor. A solicitor or attorney
who acts for a party without
authority does so at his own
peril unless his acts are later
ratified by that party," the Jus-
tice of Appeal said.
She added: "There is noth-
ing on record to indicate that the
appellant adopted Mr. Gibson
as his new attorney-at-law.
"Had he filed an authority
subsequent to the filing of the
Notice of Appeal, this may have
been regarded as a ratification
and may have related the au-
thority back to the filing of the
Notice of Appeal.
"It would perhaps then
have been regarded as an irregu-
larity rather than-a nullity.
"This not having been
done, the Notice of Appeal filed
is a nullity asto Notice of Change
of attorney-at-law was filed either
before or after the filing of the No-
tice of Appeal, and it is now too
late for it to be done," Justice of
Appeal Bernard ruled as she dis-
missed the application.
The respondent,
Ramgobin, was awarded costs
in the sum of $5, 000.00.

PEST MANAGEMENT


Natural enemies
Parasitic wasps, lady

whiteflies are developing on
weeds.

Cultural controls
Tomato is the major source
of whitefly-transmitted viruses,
so attention should be paid to
the probable source of white-
flies invading a field, given that
highest risk is from senescing,
abandoned or 'volunteer' toma-
toes.

SCALE INSECTS AND
MEALYBUGS
Scales: Aspidiotus cydoniae
(Homoptera:Dispididae);


Saissetia coffeae
(Homoptera: Coccidae)
The female Aspidiotus spp
scale is circular, flat whitish to
grayish with a diameter of 1.5
to 1.8 cm. The male is oval and
considerably smaller than the
female. The female lays yellow
eggs under its scale around its
body and the incubation period
is about one week. One genera-
tion develops within 4 weeks.
The scale attacks stems,
leaves and fruits of many other
cultivated and wild plants and
the affected leaves become yel-
lowish due to the sucking activ-
ity. At a latter stage brown ne-
crosis develops and the leaves
may dry up or cause premature
fall of the fruits The pests are


prevalent during dry seasons
and the female scale are immo-
bile and remain at one spot suck-

cially ladybird beetles
(Coccinelidae). These have been
introduced in many countries for
biological control. The
coccinellid Chilocorus cacti are
an important predator and at-
tack other scale insects.


MEALYBUGS:

Dysmicoccus brevipes,
(Homoptera :
Pseudococcidae)
This mealy bug is primarily
a pest of pineapple, however it
will also infest many other
crops and has a pantropical dis-
tribution. Essentially it is found
wherever pineapple is grown
and is present on all of the ma-


tion from predators and para-
sites, and keep them'clean from
detritus that may accumulate in
the secreted honeydew and be
deleterious to the colony. Be-
cause of the essential role of the
ants, management practices of-
ten include the control of tend-
ing ant species. Without the
ants, mealy bug populations are
small and slow to invade new
areas and the field would be free
of a serious mealy bug infesta-
tion.

THYSANOPTERA

Flower Thrips, Frankliniella
spp, (Thysanoptera:Thripidae);
Melon Thrips, Thrips palmi;
(Thysanoptera:Thripidae);

Description and Biology

Adults are tiny (1/16 inch)
slender, dark yellow insects
with brown, fringed wings.
They are most often located in
flowers, but also occur in termi-
nal buds and, occasionally, on
leaves. Larvae, which are
small, yellow and wing-
less, inhabit primarily
flowers but also terminal
.' buds and leaves. A prepu-
pal stage resembling the
larva does not feed but
falls to the ground and pu-
pates in the soil. Thrips
can complete their life
_. cycle in 15 to 30 days de-
,I..I pending on temperature.


MANAGEMENT OPTION
FOR THRIPS

Scouting/ thresholds
For tomatoes, examine one
6-foot section of row for each
2.5 acres. Gently exhale on each
of 10 flowers per 6-foot section
and count the number of thrips
seen coming out of the flower.
Treat if there are more than 5
thrips per flower.

Cultural practices
Because western flower
thrips pupae occur in the soil,
new plantings of tomatoes,
eggplants, and peppers should
not be planted following, near
or adjacent to old, infested
plantings. Reflective alumi-
num mulches reduce spread
of tomato spotted wilt virus.

proper development of pine-
apple mealybugs. They provide

J"Protect Our Children
and Our Future"


Hello Readers,


Once again it's
Earth Day, and
this day will be
observed around
the world on April 22, 2005.
The theme for this year's
Earth Day is 'Protect Our
Children and Our Future'.
Do you know how the First
Earth Day came about?
Well this week's article will
focus on how it all started.
The origin of Earth Day
goes back to the 1960s when
there was little awareness about
environmental issues. During


that time concerns were being
raised about the state of our
environment and the lack of
interest by politicians about
these issues. It was also
observed that leaders and the
press paid almost no attention
to this issue, which is of such
great importance to our future.
That idea was first brought
to the attention of President
Kennedy by Senator Gaylord
Nelson to give national visibil-
ity to this issue by going on a
nationwide conservation tour,
spelling out in dramatic language
the serious and deteriorating
condition of our environment.
The President liked the idea and
went on his five-day conserva-


Above Senator Gaylord
NelonFounder of Earth Day
tour didn't achieve what it had
hoped for; neither did it succeed
in making the environment a na-
tional political issue. However,

it was the germ of the idea that
ultimately flowered into Earth
Day. Six years had passed be-
fore the idea for Earth Day was
accepted.
At that time, in the United
States of America, there was a
great deal of turmoil on the col-
lege campuses over the Vietnam
War. Protests, called anti-war
teach-ins, were being widely
held on campuses across the
nation. On a flight from Santa
Barbara to the University of
California-Berkeley, an ar-
ticle on the teach-ins was pub-
lished, and the thought of hav-
ing a nation-wide teach-in on
the environment was done. That
was the origin of Earth Day.
In a speech in Seattle in
September 1969, it was
announced that there would be
a national environmental teach-
in in the spring of 1970. The
media carried the story
nationwide. The response was
dramatic.


It was from that event that
Earth Day achieved'what it had
hoped for. The objective was to
get a nationwide demonstration
of concern for the environment
so large that it would shake the
political establishment out of its
lethargy and, finally, force this
issue permanently onto the na-
tional political agenda. It was a
gamble, but it worked. An esti-
mated twenty million people
participated in demonstrations
all across the country.
It was truly an
astonishing grassroots
explosion. The people cared,
and Earth Day became the
first opportunity they ever
had to join in a nation-wide
demonstration to send a big
message to the politicians a
message to tell them to wake
up and do something.

tions and ideas on the articles

SDTrCE;TUM OURS.


PERIANAL GLAND
TUMOURS
THESE are relatively com-
mon neoplasms found in
older male dogs. Rarely, fe-
males may be affected. Be-
nign tumours adenomass)
grow slowly and ulcerate the
skin, become secondarily in-
fected, produce pain and in-
terfere with local hygiene.
Infrequently, a perianal tu-
mour will be a cancer (adeno-
carcinoma) capable of causing
widespread metastases.
These neoplasms can be
recognized by their typical lo-
cation and appearance. They
arise from modified skin glands
located around the anus, at the


base of the tail, and along the
lower abdomen in the region of
the prepuce. They appear as
fleshy, rounded rubbery
growths.
Wide local excision is the
treatment of choice. Some
tumours recur after local re-
moval. Because perianal gland
tumours depend upon the male
hormone, such recurrences may
be held in check by injections of
estrogen (or by castration).

BREAST
TUMOURSAND
SWELLING
Following heat or false preg-
nancy, the breasts may remain
enlarged or feel lumpy. If you


press on the breasts, you, may'
notice that you can express .1
yellowish, or at times a milk-
fluid. This condition is called
mammary hyperplasia. It is due
to a hormone imbalance. Most
commonly it is seen in older fe-
males who have never had a lit-
ter, or in females who have not
been bred in some time. Mam-
mary hyperplasia does not oc-
cur in females who have been
spayed.
Breast swelling may disap-
pear spontaneously in one td
two months, or it may persist;
in which case a breast tumour
or a problem of the ovaries may
be present. It is then advisable
to have your dog checked by a
veterinarian.
Breast tumours are clinically.


the most significant neoplasms
encountered in veterinary prac-
tice. About half of these will
prove to be cancers. The others
are benign adenomas. The back
breasts are affected most often.
The leading sign is a painless
enlargement or a knot in the
breast. Most females so af-
fected are over six years of age.
A biopsy is the only way to
distinguish between benign and

malignant tumours.
Breast cancers spread
widely, with the lungs being the
favourite sites for metastases. A
chest x-ray is advisable to rule
out metastases before embark-
ing on radical surgery.
