Locals trained to use counter-terrorism

By Linda Rutherford
MILITARY and Police top
brass have hailed a two-week
course on counter-narcotics
and counter-terrorism ended
here yesterday and involving
ranks of their respective agen-
cies as timely and expedient
in- light of growing recogni-
tion of the unholy alliance be-
tween heightened crime and
drug trafficking.

Guyana Police Force along with
the GDF were part of this
training... because it puts us in
a better position than we were
before... to ensure that together
we are all trained," Deputy
Commissioner of Police Edward
Wills said yesterday at a clos-
ing ceremony at Base Camp
Ste phenson at Timehri to offi-
cially mark the end of the train-
ing exercise.
"We [best] know what are
some of the problems that are
facing our country and we [best]
know what are some of the
strategies and tactics we'll have
to use to ensure that we are on
top of this situation," he told
the 50 or so local servicemen
who benefitted from the course,
officially tagged 'Urban Warfare
and Close-Combat Training'
and run by members of the
Florida National Guard.
It's a sentiment that was
similarly expressed by GDF's
Colonel Enoch Gaskin who saw
the entire process as "a red-let-
ter day in the fight against
narco-terrorism...[and] the be-
ginning of a special relationship
between the Guyana Defence
Force and the Florida National
Guard."
Gaskin, who is responsible
for training and operations in
the army, said while a
programme of this nature may

mean a lot to the nation in the
ongoing war on drugs and crime,
it is of much more relevance to
members of the Disciplined Ser-
vices, since it attests to the re-
solve of both the GDF and the
GPF to build capacity and to do
it together.
Noting that this method of
approach to training will cer-
tainly go a long way towards
increasing the joint operational
efficiency of both agencies,
Gaskin projected that it will
"certainly be a routine feature"
in the years ahead.'
With reference to the alli-
ance forged between the GDF
and the Florida National Guard,
an alliance has been actively en-
couraged by successive US ad-
ministrations, Gaskin said:
"In the global fight against
narco-trafficking and terrorism,
the US government has encour-
aged the creation of partnerships
between US states and develop-
ing countries."
These arrangements, he
said, are called State Partner-
ship Agreements and are being
pursued by many other coun-
tries in the Caribbean, including
Jamaica, which has as its part-
ner the State of Washington.
"We in the GDF are fortu-
nate to have the State of Florida
as our partner," he said, adding:
"This means that the State of
Florida will commit its re-
sources towards building the ca:-
pacity of the security forces in
Guyana to successfully fight
the scourge of narcotics and its
attendant maladies."
Through this arrangement,
which was brokered by GDF's


Brigadier General Edward
Collins and Florida National
Guard's General Fleming, there
will be reciprocal training
programmes involving members
of the GDF, Police Force and
the Florida National Guards,
which will be held both here and
in the US.
He concluded by citing the
just-concluded training
programme as being "testi-
mony of the will of the Secu-
rity Forces in partnership with
our international links to give
effect and teeth to the 'Drug
Master Plan'..." released about
a week ago.
The course, which was de-
scribed as "intensive", com-
prised training in applying
first aid and administering injec-
tions among other medical mat-
ters; marksmanship and 'urban
ops' and 'urban environments'.
According to course com-
mander, Captain Scott Taylor,
in the area of marksmanship,
participants were taught to do
what is called split-second
shooting under high-stress situ-
ations; to conduct house to
house searches or 'house-clear-
ing' as the exercise is called; and
to discriminate who is their tar-
get.
With reference to the mat-
ter of house-clearing, Commis-
sioner Wills had expressed some
measure of concern with respect
to claims of Human Rights vio-
lations that can result from such
exercises.
"We will have to look at the
wider society. We cannot carry
out our operations without tak-
ing those issues on board. If we
don't, it means that at the end
of the day, no matter how ef-
fective or successful our opera-

ing due caution. Therefore it is
incumbent upon us that while
we plan to take certain courses
of action that we also take into
account the concerns of the
wider community so as to see
how best we can protect them."
His feeling on the matter is
that such an exercise should not
be conducted by the police
alone, but should involve not
only the army, but other agen-
cies in the Disciplined Forces.
He also holds strong views
about the tendency among some
to resist change and to conform
to more conventional norms.

to share opinions and exchange ideas on current e ents both
locally and international.
In addition to discussions, the party reported that the del-
egation was afforded the opporruniy to observe the significant
developments in the transformation and tmodernisation of China.
It added that the delegation was extremely impressed with the
significant de% elopments in Shanghai and Beijing which occurred
o'er the last few years as a result of Cuhna's encouragement of
foreign prit ate iniestmeni
These lessons may he .ern useful to Guyana, the PNC/R
offered, and said it is convinced that the %isit \,dl serve to
strengthen the existing fnendl\ relations between the PNC/R

Some 20,000 more to

'THE Government of Guyana
has approved the funds to
provide electricity for the
first time to the remaining
20,000 low income house-
holds, from an overall 50,000
earmarked for service under
the Unserved Areas Electrifi-
cation Project (UAEP).
This was announced Thurs-
day by Head of the Presidential
Secretarial, Dr Roger Luncheon,
who said that Cabinet on Mon-
da\ approved expenditure to

complete the project
The scheme extends from

He pointed out that some of
the households have been with-
out electricity for some 40
years.
The government had com-
mitted US$5 million under the
UAEP to provide electricity in
a phased way to 30,000 of the
50,000 households.
The addinonal US$3.5 mil-
lion reflecting inputs from the
Social Impact Amelioration
Programme SIAIAPi and the
Central Housing and Planning
Authority (CHPAi would al-
lo. for the remaining 20,000
households to be powered i~ith
electricity. Luncheon added
It is anticipated that the
same firms that effect pomer
supply for the initial 30,000
LIUEP beneficiaries wouldd be
approached for the upcoming


project as well. he said.
The 50.000 households ad-
dress an ouit.anding need that
has been in existence for de-
cades or that have been created
through squatter regularisation
or the establishment of housing
schemes, he said.
Large housing schemes
such as Tuschen on the East
Bank Essequibo, blocks such
as Parfit Harnionie in Region
Three i(est Demerara/
Essequibo Islandst: Lowlands
and Hope in Region
Four Demerara/Mlahaical
and in Ad'enture. Lima in
Region Two iPomeroon/
Supenaami, would join with
housing settlements in Re-
gion Six to access electricity
supply-for the first time in
their existence.

Editorial )



CRITICAL



INITIATIVES

T HE PAST week has seen President
Bharrat Jagdeo in leadership roles on
two crucial issues relating to Guyana's
national security and its economic future.
These were:
The appointment of a National Anti-Narcotics
Commission, supported by a secretariat, to
spearhead a new offensive against drug trafficking
that is destroying lives and posing a serious threat
to Guyana's security; and
Extending to London his diplomatic offensive to
avoid an economic catastrophe for Guyana with the
decision of the European Commission to press ahead
with arrangements to cut the cost of sugar exports
into the European Union market. It.is a development


that would result in an annual loss of some US$45
million if the plan goes through in its present form.
As the President pointed out in Britain where he
met with Chancellor of the Exchequer, Gordon Brown,
Guyana welcomes the decision of the G-8 Group of
nations on debt write-off.
But the harsh, agonising reality is that while
Guyana is to benefit from debt forgiveness of
approximately US$8 million a year, this country faces
the calamitous economic burden of losing US$45
million annually from the proposed European
Commission's cut in sugar price.
The impact of narco-trafficking on murders,
violence, gun-running and threats to security of
member states of CARICOM, as well as the social
and economic consequences for the region's sugar
exporting countries as a result of the proposed EU
cut in price, will be among priority issues for the 26th
Summit of Community Heads of Government
scheduled for St. Lucia, starting on July 3.
This week, President Jagdeo, who has lead
responsibility among CARICOM leaders for regional
agricultural development, including sugar, will be
heading for Caracas, along with the Prime Ministers
of Trinidad and Tobago (Patrickc Manning) and
Grenada (Keith Mitchell), to discuss with President
Hugo Chavez another very critical matter securing
oil on concessionary terms to cushion the impact of


escalating oil prices.
At the core of the meeting on Wednesday, June
29 which will be preceded by a meeting on Tuesday
by a group of energy ministers from CARICOM, Cuba
and Venezuela would be a review of plans, originally
initiated by President Chavez and Prime Minister
Manning, for the creation of a transnational company,
'PetroCaribe'. It is to be involved in distributing crude
and refined petroleum products at prices lower than
what they are now paying.
It is expected that on his return home, or following
his participation in the coming CARICOM Summit,
President Jagdeo will inform the nation.on the results
of his initiatives on sugar in London and oil in
Caracas.

THE COMING ST.LUCIA ENCOUNTER


TODAY, I revisit the
issue of the coming
"political get-together in
Castries" of leaders of
governing and opposition
parliamentary parties,
since I have now managed
to receive a copy of the draft
agenda for the one-day
meeting scheduled for the
St. Lucian capital on
Saturday, July 2.
The six-item agenda
offers no path-finding
initiative; and in a
way underscores my earlier
observation that while not
much should be expected, its
real significance lies in the
fact that it IS taking place.
'After all, amid the plethora
of political rhetoric on
"consultations" and "good


"
F1 -" f


governance", it is the first-
ever such encounter of
CARICOM Heads of
Government and Leaders of
Opposition in Parliament
since the birth of the
Community 32 years ago.
The agenda has been
drafted for what one Prime
Minister described as
"ensuring structured
dialogue and to avoid getting
involved with emotional
domestic issues that could
prove counter-productive for
both sides".
When questioned
whether Opposition Leaders
have had any inputs in the
draft agenda, one


government spokesman
noted that since the initiative
for the meeting was one by
the Community's Heads of
Government, care was taken
to provide the Opposition
representatives the
opportunity to raise any
"specific concerns under any
other business", ahead of
closing remarks by the
chairman.
Following opening
statements by the chairman
and host, Prime Minister
Kenny Anthony of St.
Lucia, and Opposition
Leader and former Prime
Minister of Dominica,
Edison James, there will be
three lead presentations to
generate discussions
during the day.
Barbados' Prime Minister,
Owen Arthur, will deal with the
Caribbean Single Market and
Economy (CSME) and its
"significance for the region's
future development".
Secondly, Jamaica's Prime
Minister P. J. Patterson -
whose initiative led to the
arrangement for the
encounter in Castries will
address the "significance" for
CARICOM of the Caribbean
Court of Justice (CCJ).

'BINDING' CHARTER
Guyana's Opposition
Leader, Robert Corbin of the
People's National Congress
Reform, is to make a
presentation "on the way
forward for the continuation
of the regional dialogue".
Neither former Prime
Minister and current
Opposition Leader of
Trinidad and Tobago, Basdeo
Panday, nor the new
Opposition Leader of the
Jamaica Labour Party, Bruce


Golding, is listed for a formal
presentation. But they will be
among the Eastern Caribbean
Opposition Leaders in
Parliament who are expected
as participants for the
meeting, as well as from
Suriname.
When last year's 25th
CARICOM Summit took
place in Grenada, Opposition
Leader Tillman Thomas of the
National Democratic
Congress (NDC), appealed in
a national broadcast for the
Community's leaders to
move their discussion on
"transparency and good
governance" from being just
a broad set of desired
principles,, and to "convert
them into a real and living
Charter, legally binding on all


:OP;












EDISON JAMES

member states..."
This issue is expected to
surface in the general
discussions, as well as
Panday's stated anxiety for
"overall constitutional
reform instead of expedient
tinkering with constitutional
amendments".
When he first publicly
addressed the issue of
consensus-building by
CARICOM achieve essential


objectives of the region's eco-
nomic integration movement
during the closiffg session
last April of an OAS-spon-
sored Forum of Political Par-
ties, Prime Minister Patterson
had noted:
"Whether opposition
parties ever achieve the
position of government or
not, they do command the


support of significant portion
of the population in our
respective countries".
Consequently, as
Patterson sees it, as
CARICOM seeks to bring the
integration movement closer
to the people, "it is very
necessary not only to


.1


ROBERT CORBIN

involve the political parties,
but to embrace the wider civil
society as well".

MECHANISMS
The expectation,


therefore, is to have some
foundation laid, some
mechanism fashioned in
Castries to continue the
dialogue process to build the
widest possible support for
the goals of CARICOM, in-
cluding, of course, the CCJ
which has original
jurisdiction for the CSME
and, ultimately, to serve as the


final appellate court for ALL
member states of the Commu-
nity.
Opposition Leader,
Golding who, like his
Trinidadian counterpart,
Panday, has been a persistent
advocate for constitutional
reform and separation of
powers, is expected to also
raise for discussion an issue
currently engaging bi-parti-
san political consideration in
Jamaica state financing of
political parties to overcome
recurring complaints/allega-
tions of corruption in private
funding of candidates.
While it is more than
likely that some Opposition
Leaders will seek to use the
encounter to inject aspects of
their domestic politics,. when-
ever the opportunity presents
itself, any call for "shared
governance", however lim-
ited a period, but not based
on an electoral mandate, is
expected to be a non-starter
in Castries.
But it could be


useful should opposition
delegates come forward
with suggestions on how
to make more relevant the
Assembly of Caribbean
C o m m u n i t y
Parliamentarians,
inaugurated in 1996 as a
deliberative, people-
focused forum, but which
is yet to have any
significant impact.
Also, in pointing to
initiatives for creation of
independent regional
mechanisms to have a
supervisory role in the func-
tioning of national bodies
dealing with the conduct of
elections; judicial and police
services commissions, as well
as working to make legally

FIGHTING FIRES


THE idea behind the 'Our
World' and 'Sunday Morning'
corner on page one of the
Guyana and Sunday
Chronicle is to have little
stories from around the
world about the funnier and
strange side of life to help
readers start their day with a
laugh.
It's meant to provoke a
chuckle or bring forth a smile at
the quirks of human nature,
amid the gloom and doom.that
sometimes tend to dominate the
front pages of newspapers.
Laughter, they say, is the
best medicine and we try our
best to administer what we


hope are good daily doses to
help people cope with the
feelings of despair that these
days so often tend to
overwhelm them.
While there are gems like
the item we had on Friday"
about the newspaper crime
reporter in India charged with
being member of a gang stealing
cars not all the vignettes
evoke laughter. Our world is full
of strange and funny people
who do things that make others
scratch their heads in
bewilderment and ponder the
lengths the homo sapiens are
capable of -- like the man in
England who is walking naked


through the country, because he
feels like it.
There's no knowing what
next will pop up but we're
always on the lookout and will
keep you posted. Trust me.
Those who know me know
howmnuch I like to laugh. I can't
help it -- I am addicted to
laughter and my relatives,
friends and colleagues who have
seen me convulsed in mirth often
declare that I am "too lawless".
Funny stuff really sends me
into ecstatic bouts of laughter -
- loud, long and rapturous --
what my relatives and friends
call "lawless". I can't put my
hands over my lips and titter


like some people do when
something funny strikes me -
my laughter begins deep down
in my belly and pours forth like
little thunderstorms -- sheer
"lawlessness", my relatives say.
Some people tell me I look
'wicked', like I am always up
to something. I am sorry, I can't
help it, and if I am "lawless",
the laughter police will have to
charge m6 and they will
probably have to haul me off to
jail laughing.
There's so much rib-tickling
stuff on local TV -- and I am
not talking about the American
comedy shows that they all so
barefacedly thief-- that when I
am home watching, I have to gag
myself or else I would wake up
the neighbours with my
"lawlessness".
It's bad enough when I set
the dogs howling with my
singing in the bathroom to ask
my neighbours to endure my
"lawless" laughter. I gag myself
and roll over in the chair and on
the floor when the local comics
are on local TV.
You know them and can
spot them as well as I do, so I
won't bore you with names and
stuff like that. Just watch them
and keep on laughing -- it's
free..
And it will soon be
bonanza time with elections
coming around. I am already
into training to build my
abdominal muscles for the
marathon bouts of laughter that.
are on the horizon with the
looming elections. Send in the
clowns!
Did .you see the 'Our
World' item on our page one
yesterday? It was about goats
fighting fires in California.

NEW INITIATIVES.

Weekly viewpoint by Robert Persaud


GUYANA'S chronic social
and economic challenges,
though not unique, are re-
ceiving unprecedented atten-
tion. The focus now, however,
seems to be more penetrative,
comprehensive and, certainly
sustained.
Top of the PPP/Civic
Government's agenda have al-
ways been the issues of crime
and violence and the future of
our young people, that is, to-
provide them with ample op-
portunities for their growth and
development.
Generally, the policies and
programmes of the administra-
tion have had a heavy empha,-
sis on improving the overall so-
cial condition for all our people.
Already, there have been phe-
nomenal improvements in so
many areas.
But the Government is not
complacent to believe that it has
achieved the desired level of
progress. Stable macro-eco-


nomic indicators, while critical,
are insufficient so too are in-
vestment, high expenditure in
development projects and secu-
rity. These have to be supple-
mented by enhanced and 'tar-
. geted interventions from the'
' highest level the President of
Guyana.
There is a firm recognition
that more needs to be done. And
much more is being done to en-
hance security, deal with cases
of youth joblessness, and pro-
vide more opportunities for
- those who may have been left
behind in the on-going changes
and modernisation of our soci-
ety and the globalisation whirl-
wind.
President Bharrat Jagdeo
has been very conscious of
these pressing realities which are
common- to nearly all develop-
ing societies. His personal at-
tention to them is well-recorded
and clearly effective by the
positive results.


This intense attention was
just recently manifest when the
Head of State launched two ma-
jor initiatives the National
Training Programme for Youth
Empowerment and the 2005-
2009 Anti-Drug Strategy and an
enhanced to battle crime.
The Youth Empowerment
Project, to cost the Government
$350M, targets those young
people who are in need of job,
training and even further educa-
tion. These young people are
considered at-risk and are more
vulnerable to recruitment by the
criminal and other anti-social el-
ements. It must be said that al-
ready there are programmes by
the Government which target
this group, but this new
programme is more expanded
and focused effort to capture
another 5250 over the coming
three years.
This type of programme
along with the mammoth devel-
opment projects in various

communities and employment
opportunities would counter
any claim of lack of opportuni-
ties for our disadvantaged youth
in Buxton, Industry, Port
Mourant, Linden, Anna Regina
or Moruca or any other place.
It also removes any excuse that
these individuals are forced to
live a life of crime or engage in
other destructive behaviour. The
Youth Empowerment Project
rebuffs any suggestion that
there are no specialised outlets
for young people, who are not
qualified or skilled to attend
higher institutions of learning or
acquire a marketable skill. We
must ensure that those who
need it make full use of it. The
target groups must not be mis-
guided by certain opposition of-
ficials like those who advised
young people in New
Amsterdam recently not to tap
'the opportunities of a govern-
ment-built youth centre in the
town.
The other major initia-
tive announced by the Presi-
dent is the five-year anti-drug
plan has outlined the strate-
gies to be used by the law en-
forcement agencies in com-
bating this global scourge.
The headway in the fight
against drug trafficking made
by our law officers under the
PPP/Civic is significant given
the priority this has been re-
ceiving at the Government
level. But the war is still on
and this new master plan will


expand on those efforts, in-
troduce new, relevant tech-
niques which are consistent
with international best prac-
tices. Guyana's fight will
thus be more effective. There
can be no doubting of the
Government's resolve to
tackle drug trafficking both
from the supply and demand
sides.
Further, the enhanced anti-
crime battle plan adds to those
initiatives which were intro-
duced by the President in May
2002. These latest additional
measures, a few of which were
recently announced by the
President, would modernise
crime fighting, concentrate at-
tention on weak areas and in-
crease all stakeholders oppo-
sition, business, youth, religious
groups and ordinary citizens -
involvement in crime fighting.
As the President pointed
out, the establishment of a Na-
tional Commission on Law and
Order, the creation of a Commu-
nity Policing Ministerial Unit
with a $30M allocation, tougher
action against racial incitement
and violence, the introduction of
the Neighbourhood Police arm,


penal reforms, heightened atten-
tion to vulnerable-groups, a
modern traffic control system;
increased attention to white-
collar crime, tougher gun con-
trol, modernising and enhancing
the Law Enforcement Agencies
anti-crime capacities and a drug
strategy master plan are just
pointed reminders of how keen
the Government is on making
our streets and communities
safer.
These major initiatives an-
nounced by the President can-
not by any stretch of the imagi-
nation be considered partisan.
They deserve the support of all
citizens'especially the political
and social leaders for their effec-
tive implementation. Those who
speak about putting Guyana
first and claim to have the na-
tional interest at heart must join
in giving effect to the many
measures.
There is now a golden op-
portunity for all sectors to be
involved in tackling some of
our country's very serious
problems. We await their ac-
tive support and participation
at the community and na-
tional levels..

Democracy threatened




by crime and violence


By Odeen Ishmael

THE Guyana Government is
seeking assistance from the
British and American govern-
ments to beef up security
during the period of the gen-
eral elections due next year.
Guyana's elections in 1992,
1997 and 2001 were plagued by
opposition-led violent protests
even though impartial interna-
tional observers declared those
elections to be free and fair. It
is obvious from this current re-
quest that the Government
wants to implement preventive
measures in case such behaviour
recurs next year.
Guyana is by no means the
only country in the Caribbean
region that experiences "elec-
tion" violence. Jamaica has a
history of pre-election violence
involving supporters of both
sides, but it tends to simmer
down after the campaign is over
and the results announced. Since
the return of free and fair elec-
tions in Guyana in 1992, the
trend has taken an opposite
pattern: the violent opposition
behaviour was pronounced after
the voting exercise was over.
The argument has been
made that with the growth of
democracy in Latin America and
the Caribbean over the past de-
cade, people will not allow their
democratically elected govern-
ments. to be removed by vio-
lence and other non-constitu-
tional means. However, a
counter-argument was demon-
strated by the removal of Presi-


dent Aristide from Haiti and the
emergence of a repressive re-
gime which enjoys backing from
some of the very countries
which demand more and more
democratisation elsewhere.
Also, -President Hugo
Chavez of Venezuela, demo-
cratically elected, was forcibly
removed from power for two
days in April 2002, only to be
reinstated when the masses rose
in protest against those who en-
gineered the coup. A violent at-
tack on the President's office in
Guyana in July 2002 by oppo-
sition supporters was repelled
with the loss of lives. On the
other hand, street protests ac-
companied by some violence
forced the resignations of Presi-
dents in Ecuador and Bolivia
more than once in the past two
years.
Despite moves to greater
levels of democracy in thehe hemi-
sphere, many of the freely
elected governments continue to
face serious threats from forces
which promote their violent re-
moval.
There is a feeling that some
sections of Latin American and
Caribbean society are not yet
prepared to accept the results of
democratic elections. Such
forces were beneficiaries of dis-
credited dictatorial regimes and
they abhor losing out to the
evolving democracy now being
widely practised. Perhaps they
are still embedded deeply in the
influences of repressive pre-
democratic times when violence
against politicians, journalists,


workers, and pro-democracy ac-
tivists was an everyday occur-
rence.
It is interesting to note that
Argentina, Chile and Mexico are
moving to bring to justice lead-
ing officials and politicians in-
volved in brutal acts of repres-
sion decades ago. In some coun-
tries, many of those violators
still hold important positions in
the military and government ad-
ministration and feel that they
are immune from prosecution.
With such actions as ex-
amples, people in other coun-
tries who suffered from po-
litical repression are. also
raising their voices for the
same process to be applied. In
Guyana, more and more
people are now talking about
a Truth Commission to be set
up to investigate the period of
non-democratic rule from
1968 to 1992 and for a com-
plete investigation into the
assassination in 1980 of the
popular political leader and
historian Dr. Walter Rodney.
But despite moves to bring
old violators to face justice,
even as recently as two years
ago there were reports in Gua-
temala of violent attacks against
human rights activists, trade
unionists, journalists, indigenous
leaders, and forensic scientists
engaged in excavating the sites
of earlier massacres carried out
by the military during the days
of the dictatorship.

warfare against the government

groups continues unabated in
Colombia. Much of this is fu-
elled by the cocaine trade and an
end to decades of this violence
is not yet in sight.
Everywhere in the hemi-
sphere, murder rates have in-
creased rapidly over the past
five years. Kidnappings have
become frequent, especially in
the Dominican Republic- and
Trinidad and Tobago.
Actually, much of the ram-
pant crime wave throughout
Latin America and the Caribbean


is spurred by the expanding drug
trade. Just a few days ago, the
Guyanese Police Commissioner
confirmed what is widely
known that the influx of ille-
gal guns (used by criminals) has
resulted from the growing drug
trade in the country.
The new dimension of
criminals being involved in poli-
tics and not being ostracised is

Persons wanted for human
rights crimes and gun-running
and drug trafficking participated


in the ouster of President
Aristide from Haiti. Ironically,
some of them placed themselves
in charge of policing. A blind eye
was turned to these "security
men" because those who dis-
liked Aristide baptised them as

Moruca hospital to be repaired


(GINA) THE hospital and
hostel located at Moruca/
Kumaka, Region One
(Barima/Waini) will soon be
repaired as Government's de-
velopment plans for hinter-
land communities intensify.
While on a visit to Moruca
Saturday to launch the Natiqnal
Bed Net Programme, Minister
of Health, Dr. Leslie
Ramsammy, told residents of
the plans.
"The Regional Overseer has
already done an
estimate...within two weeks I'll
provide Cabinet with this. Ad-
ditional assessments will be
conducted within the next week
and Cabinet has already decided
to release the funds to the Min-
istry of Finance," the Minister
indicated.
The Moruca hospital also
functions as a training institu-
tion, and the compound houses
a hostel, which will also be re-
paired.
"It should be noted that the
rehabilitation of this hospital is
important because in addition
to providing services for the


sick, the hospital is also the base
from which our medex training
programme is conducted," Min-
ister Ramsammy said.
The Minister, addressed
several concerns that were *
raised by health workers dur-
ing a visit by President
Bharrat Jagdeo earlier in June.
These include issues pertain-
ing to salary and medical sup-
plies. Heath workers had
complained about not receiv-
ing salaries on time, and in-
dicated that some medical
supplies were inadequate.
The Minister pointed out
that these were being ad-
dressed, especially the salary
issue, which: will be resolved
within two weeks. He ex-
pressed the need for banking
facilities to be made available
in the region which would
curtail! the impediments to
cash flow. Alternative mea-
sures are being- considered
such as maintaining an ad-
equate'amount of cash-in-
hand, which can be used to
effect payment of salaries.
Regarding.the level of medi-


cal supplies available at the
hospital, the Minister said this
directly relates to the accuracy
of records and vigilance of the
health workers. HE noted that
the monitoring system in place
was not being effectively man-
aged. ,
In some instances, Minister
Ramsammy noted, health
workers. are unaware of what
medical supplies are needed. On
several occasions, supplies that
were in stock had expired and
others were depleted, yet no
request was made for their
replenishment, the Minister
said. Without a request being
made, supplies cannot be
replenished..
The Ministry of Health is
currently working to ensure that
this situation is rectified. Radio
sets have-already been distrib-
uted to several hinterland com-
munities, including the Moruca/
Kumaka district. This, Minister
Ramsammy said, should be used
to transmit requests for medical
supplies to the relevant authori-
ties.
Patricia Singh, Coordinator


of Indigenous Peoples Commu-
nities for Regional Health Ser-
vices, Ministry of Health, im-
plored health workers to be
more responsible, indicating that
failure to handle their own af-
fairs will only result in persons


from outside the community
doing it for them.
Singh indicated that
there are competent persons
within the community who
should volunteer to assist in
the region's development.


Singh, a trained nurse, noted
that she had the- opportunity
to migrate, but chose- to re-
main in her homeland to aid
in its development. This, she
said, should be the objective
of. others as well.


Deocac


3traee by0 crime


From page nine
crimes were also labelled as
"freedom fighters" by certain
anti-government politicians.
With regard to Haiti,
CARICOM countries have so
far refused to recognize -the re-
gime in Port-a-Prince. This is a
result of the increasing violence,
instability, .arbitrary rule, and
human rights abuses in the coun-
try since Aristide was sent into
exile. And as the Washington-
based Council on Hemispheric
Affairs has said, the economic
and humanitarian disaster in
Haiti "has pushed the country.
closer to the brink of political
chaos than ever before".


In quite a few countries of
the region, the security appa-
ratus is showing a tendency
to develop into a separate but
independent arm of govern-
ment. Politicians and bureau-
crats in government complain
that very often the Police are
not showing effectiveness in
flushing out in capturing
high-profile criminals. As a
result, more and more gov-
ernment administrations set
up their own independent
system for information
gathering because they see
the existing security appa-
ratus as inefficient and un-
trustworthy. Supporters
of such an action feel this
is necessary since criminal
elements, associated with
big-time crime, have enforced
undue influence on sections
of the security forces.
While all this is happen-
ing, the local communities are
losing their effectiveness in
upholding local security.
Criminals brazenly commit
violent crimes in villages and
walk away without being in-
tercepted. Undoubtedly,
people are cowed into fear-
ing that they would face re-


taliation since some of these
criminals enjoy protection
from certain residents in
those very same communi-
ties.
The Caribbean countries, in
particular, are faced with a situ-
ation where some persons de-
ported from developed coun-
tries for committing serious
crimes resort to criminal activ-
ity using Illicit high-powered
firearms to inflict violence on
their victims.
Clearly, the horrifying as-
pect of the use of illicit firearms
by criminal elements is that it
has the capability of undermin-
ing the security of these states..
This is because crime now
very violent in nature under-
mines society by establishing a
situation of instability which
can lead to the destabilisation of
democratic governments.
As governments of the re-
gion implement measures-to
combat violent crime, the de-
fenders of democracy every-
where have to be on constant
watch. They cannot allow
crime and violence to gain
the upper hand.

Ambassador to Venezuela).

Guyanese elected


President of St Augustine


Students Council


GUYANESE Charrandass
Persaud has been, elected
President,of the Students
Representative Council
(SRC) at Hugh Wooding Law
School- in St Augustine,
Trinidad.
He told the Chronicle his
election was in May and he
would assume the position in
August.
A first year scholar pursu-
ing a Council of Legal.Educa-
tion Certificate that would en-
able him to practice in the Car-
ibbean, Mr Persaud is currently
undergoing a period of in-service
training in Guyana.
Coincidentally, upon em-
barking.on the Bachelor of Laws
degree programme at University
of Guyana in the 2000-2001
academic year, he was voted
President of the UG-Students'
Society.at Turkeyen Campus.
According to him, his cam-


paign in Trinidad was short be-
cause not much notice was
given for the voting but he was


MR CHARRANDASS
PERSAUD
also helped by the Guyanese
community which fully sup-
ported him.


The aspiring, lawyer ad-
mitted that it was not an easy
task to win the presidency as
only 42 Guyanese are on roll
at the institution and the
competition was mainly from
a very prominent
Trinidadian, another first
year student representative.
However, Persaud said he is
pleased with the camaraderie
that prevails among the
Guyanese studying at St Augus-
tine and their relationship with
the rest of the student popula-
tion.
He said some of the issues
he plans to look into include the
need for more computers, access
to the Internet and having the
results of assignments returned
to students expeditiously.
Persaud expects to estab-
lish "great working rela-
tions" between the Adminis-
tration and. students.

How about it, Mr
Georgetown Mayor? Grass and
bush are threatening to take over
Georgetown, in what could very
well be a not so clever plot by
some to restore its 'Garden City'
status, and you can turn to goats
to help you defeat them.
Don't tell me you would
need to ask the World Bank to
send in experts to do a pre-
feasibility study that could take
years, and then a feasibility
study; and if they decide goats
can be deployed to eat up the
grass and bush around
Georgetown, you would then
have to spend more years
putting the goat bids out to
tender before the Central Tender
Board can select the best and


most suitably qualified goat
brigade to do the job.
If you go that goat route,
those determined to shame you
by transforming the capital city
into Bushtown will succeed.
You can't allow it to happen.
Follow the California example
and send in the goats. Your
place in history is at stake and
you wouldn't want to go under
and out to a nefarious grass and
bush brigade, would you?
And while you are it, you
can assemble a manatee brigade
and deploy it in the canals
under a year-round schedule
that will keep them clean of
grass. Some canals in
Georgetown are already so lush
and thick with grass that goats
can graze there peacefully


without sinking.
Think about, Mr Mayor --
the goat brigade on patrol for
grass around the city and going
into attack mode whenever it
comes across the green stuff,
and those peaceful, lovable
manatees quietly keeping the
green stuff out of your precious
drainage canals.
There's no shame in being
covered in goat and manatee glory

And you can take comfort
from the goats already in high

Dr lan Mcdonald reflects on


his 50 unbroken years in


Guyana's sugar industry


. By Chamanlall Naipaul

"The sugar industry has been
fascinating. There was never
a boring moment. I have no
regrets. The industry has a
remarkable group of people,
and it is a good industry to
work in. I have always realized
the huge importance of the
sugar industry to Guyana"
This is how former Market-
ing Director of the Guyana Sugar
Corporation, (GUYSUCO), one
of Guyana's foremost writers
and former Caribbean lawn ten-
nis champion, Dr. Ian McDonald
summed up his 50 unbroken
years of working in the
Guyana's sugar industry.
But even though retired, he
still has a keen and integral in-
terest in the industry as Chief
Executive Officer of the Sugar
Association of the Caribbean
(SAC) and is working feverishly
against the proposal by the Eu-
ropean Commission to cut sugar
price? by 39 per cent.
He left his native Trinidad in
1955 to begin his illustrious ca-
reer in the sugar industry here,
which was then owned by the
Booker McConnell Group of
Companies, a British conglomer-
ate.
After finishing his studies at
Cambridge University, he said he
was influenced by the late Sir
Jock Campbell, who was then
chairman of the Bookers Group,
to take up a post in the sugar in-
dustry here, which appeared to
be a more challenging and excit-
ing one than the job he was be-
ing offered in his native Trinidad
and Tobago at that time.
He described Sir Jock as a
remarkable and inspiring figure
who did not only seek to make
money from the sugar industry,
but wanted to modernize it and
make it more efficient, effective
and responsive to everyday hu-
man needs.


Dr. McDonald said Sir Jock
sought to especially improve the
lot of sugar workers and have
the sugar industry make a con-
tribution to the country as a
whole
Fondly recalling his interac-
tions with the late President Dr.
Cheddi Jagan who was deeply
involved in the cause of the sugar
workers since the 1940s, Dr.
McDonald said: "He was an ad-
mirable person who was abso-
lutely genuine about what he be-
lieved in. He had the interest of
Guyana and the Caribbean at
heart. Though you might dis-
agree with him, you could not
doubt that his heart was in the
right place. And it was remark-
able how he related with the or-
dinary man. He made a big im-
pression on me."


Ups and downs
Reflecting on the perfor-
mance of the industry over the
years, Dr. McDonald noted that
it has had its ups and downs,
reaching its lowest point in 1990
when production plummeted to
129, 000 tonnes of sugar.
He recalled that in the 1980s
to 1990, the industry experi-
enced severe problems, and part
of the difficulty was that it
lacked the funds for capital in-
vestment.
He said also that he dis-
agreed with the manner in which
diversification of the industry
was being implemented in the
1980s.
"I have never been against
diversification. But I believe
that diversification should be

dull


in addition to sugar and not to
divert resources from sugar to
other crops," he remarked.
In addition, he said diversi-
fication should be within sugar,
such as refining and co-genera-
tion and producing value-added
products like what is being pur-
sued currently by the industry.
He feels that the industry
has "gone from strength to
strength" and is moving in the
right direction.
Asked whether he felt
nationalisation of the sugar in-
dustry in 1976 was correct, he
replied that he thought Bookers
wais doing a fine job, but the
prevailing situation "might have
made it inevitable." However, he
was pleased with the manner in
which the negotiations were
done.
He recalled that the negotia-
tions were long, hard and tough,
but were amicable, and after
nationalisation, there was conti-
nuity as the industry was being
managed mostly by Guyanese,
unlike the bauxite industry which
was managed significantly by
expatriates who did not remain
here. And so, after
nationalisation, "a vacuum was
left."
He feels nationalisation can
be good or bad, but in order for
it to be successful, the
nationalised entity must not be
starved of funds by the govern-
ment.
"'That is not to say that the
government must not have its fair
share through taxation," he ex-
plained, adding, that adequate
funds should be available for re-
investment, a lack of which was
one of the factors hampering the
sugar industry during the 1980s.
Another factor which is im-
portant for nationalisation to be
successful, he pointed out, is
that there should not be interfer-
ence by government in the nor-
mal management of the entity.


Right direction
As regards the present state
of the industry, Dr. McDonald
said it is moving in the right di-
rection and the steps that have
been taken to modernise are cor-
rect, noting that Guyana's sugar
industry is strong and dynamic
and stands a good chance of sur-
viving the impact of trade


liberalisation. However, there
will be great challenges, he said.
Giving his views on
globalisation and trade
liberalisation, Dr. McDonald said
he is worried about the philoso-
phy of "unbridled free trade-free
trade being considered as the an-
swer to everything. In fact, it can
be good and it can lead to mis-
ery."
"There is a need to find a
balance in the world which leads
to much less misery," he offered.
Asked as a critic of commu-
nism/socialism if the present
trend of an increasing gap be--
tween rich and poor is likely to
result in a resurgence of social-
ism in the world, he replied that
he-is not against the tenets of so-
cialism, but rather against social-
ism as was practised by the
former Soviet Union and Eastern
Europe, adding that the objective
of socialism is to ensure that
there is a fairer distribution of
wealth in society which is some-
thing good.
He observed that capitalism
is a good generator of wealth
which is essential, while under
socialism, there is a better dis-

CHIEF Executive Officer of
the Guyana Sugar Corpora-
tion (GUYSUCO), Mr.
Michael Boast believes that
although Guyana cannot
change the European Union
(EU) sugar proposal, it can
still, along with "our friends
in Europe", change the per-
centag, price cut being pro-
posed
He however, stressed that
this ca only be done through
vigorous lobbying and the inner
strength to believe that some-
thing good can still come out
from a seemingly losing battle,
especially when the odds are
piled up against you.
"Along with our friends in
Europe, we can change those
proposals; we will not be able to
make those proposals go away,
but we might be able to change
the 39 per cent to some other
(lower) percentage. Whatever it


mo


tribution of wealth. Therefore
there should be a system whict
finds a balance between capital
ism and socialism.

Questioning Catholic
On the issue of religion, Dr
McDonald describes himself a!
a "questioning Catholic" because
he is not too comfortable wit
some of the tenets of Catholi-
cism. He said he was a great ad-
mirer of the late Pope John Paul
II, even though some of that
Pope's declarations he disagreed
with.
On whether religion should
play a greater role in helping tc
meet man's material needs, Dr.
McDonald is of the opinion that
religion needs to focus on fulfill-
ing man's spiritual needs which
are also vital.
Asked about ever being dis-
criminated against in the Carib-
bean because of his European ex
traction, Dr. McDonald replied
that he has always felt comfort-
able as a West Indian.
"When I look around, an
see how humans treat each othei
because of race, when you think
of all these things and the preju-

but we have to at least start
now," Boast said.
He was at the time speak-
ing to an audience of senior offi-
cials and Directors of
GUYSUCO, as well as more
than 100 sugar workers at a spe-
cial Honour's Roll function at the
Uitvlugt, West Coast Demerara
Community Centre Ground
yesterday afternoon.
Six dedicated and hard-work-
ing workers from the East
Demerera and West Demerara
sugar estates were honoured at
the ceremony for their outstand-
ing performances for the year

dices and here I am, very much a
minority, and I do not ever re-
member being discriminated
against," he declared.
As a writer, Dr. McDonald
has excelled and is among the
best writers of Guyana. He has
won the Guyana Prize for Po-
etry in 1992 for his collection
of poems titled 'Essequibo', and
this year, he received the award,
in the same category, with his
collection, 'Between Silence and
Silence': And as far back as
1969, he had published his most
widely acclaimed book 'The
Humming Bird Tree' which was
made into a film by the BBC
and also won a Royal Society
for Literature prize for being the
best regional novel. It is also be-
ing used in schools and univer-
sities as a literature text.
He has been a Fellow of the
Royal Society since 1970, and in
1997, was awarded an Honorary
Doctorate of Letters by the Uni-
versity of the West Indies, St Au-
gustine Campus.
He was also conferred with
the Arrow of Achievement (A.A)
in 1986 by the Government of
Guyana.


But how has he been able to
wear his different hats so well -
as an industry executive, writer
and sportsman?
He explains that if you
sleep six hours a day and you
use the remaining 18 hours prop-
erly, you could achieve all these
things.
He attributes his successes
to a great extent to some of the
principles inculcated in him by
his father whom he describes as
a "great man."
Dr. McDonald identified
some of those principles as al-
ways striving to do the best in
your endeavours. Do not pro-
crastinate, he warned, but rather
do now what needs to be done
now and always try to be punc-
tual.
Despite, the tremendous dif-
ficulties he experienced, Dr.
McDonald chose to make
Guyana his permanent home.
Why?
"The fact of the matter is
that I love it here. I have a
wonderful wife, family, home
and friends. What could be
more important?" I love
Guyana!!" he said.

it we have to at least start now.'
GUYSUCO Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Michael Boast


things that are not in the
country's control and elements
that are, Boast said: "We can't
change the EU proposal and I
would like to emphasise that it
is just a proposal, its not an end
product as yet we still have a
long way to go and I would like
to say that we have friends in
Europe (and) we are gaining an
enormous- amount of support as
we continue with our lobbying
efforts".
I Spea!kin.- at the same func-
tion yesterday, General Manager
of the West Demerara Estate, Mr.
S. Rampertab also took the op-
portunity to criticise the pro-
posed EU reforms which he de-
scribed as "heartless" with "po-
tentially disastrous conse-
quences" to the economy.
"The raw truth must be
confronted...I have no doubt that
many of you have over the recent
past days been stunned at the
continued impoverishing inten-
tions of the European Union in
its unfair approach to sugar re-
form," he said.
"The.suddenness and magni-
tude of this heartless proposal is
potentially disastrous for our in-
dustry and our future remains
pregnant %. ith tnrormous chal-
lenges. uncertadnties and varied
dif Ilculies.' Penat, asserted.
According to him, "these de-

tion levels to our lull potential on.

tecli\e to compete in the global
marketplace"
Permanent Secretary in the
Minir,r oft Airic alture, Mr.
Dind) al Permaul as, however,
optimistic, and holds the view
that the sugar industry in Guyana
"will succeed through this pro-
cess of reform".


Underscoring the "lifeline
importance" of sugar to Guyana,
Permaul pointed out that the
sugar industry is the highest con-
tributor to the economy, the
single largest employer and the
single largest earner of foreign ex-
change from exports.
"These are difficult days,
with the sugar industry facing
uncertain changes in our major
markets. As such, it is of great
comfort to be here today to
honour those who have contrib-
uted so much to an industry of


vital importance to the economic
and social well-being of Guyana,"
he said in the feature address at
yesterday's Honour's Roll func-
tion.
Permaul noted that if these
plans go ahead as proposed, it
will obviously place a great bur-
den on the industry.
"The Government of Guyana
is steadfastly determined to pro-
tect the preferences that our
sugar exports enjoy in the Euro-
pean Union, but also in other
markets such as the United
States, to ensure the protection
of the many livelihoods' for
which our sugar industry pro-
vides," Permaul posited.
To this effect, he noted that
officials of the Guyana Govern-
ment have been heavily involved

this together'

Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry
*THE Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry
:(GCCI) is urging all businesses, associations, unions, non
governmental organizations, faith-based groups and civil so-
ciet3 in general to "come together" to support GUYSUCO
in its campaign to stop the reform proposal.
The GCCI is also in the process of consulting with its associ-
ate Chnambers in the Caribbean ho are also affected. to collectivelyh

In a iaiteneni[ toi tthe pre-' yesterday. the GCCI M arned that
Guyana's fragile economy will be in 'even more serious trouble
and the domino effect of the loss of revenue from sugar will affect
each and every one of us."
The private sector organisation said it stands by GUYSUCO
in pushing for non-acceptance of the EU Commission's Proposal
Reform to cut sugar prices in the ACP countries.
Following a discussion with GUYSUCO top executives and
the Executive Committee of the GCCI, a special meeting of the
Chambers' Councillors was convened on Wednesday last.
"Every member represented gave their comments on how

in lobbying key agents in the
EU with counter-proposals that
would substantially reduce the
extent of any price cuts and
would lengthen the period over
which any such price cuts are
implemented.
This, he said, would allow
the local sugar industry time to
adjust and adapt to the changes,
allowing the industry the space
it needs to restructure and in-
crease efficiency so as to remain
a competitive supplier of sugar
on the world market.
The Agriculture Ministry
official also said he would like
to "put to rest" the unsettling
rumours of supposed plans to


close the Demerara Sugar Es-
tates.
"I would like to unequivo-
cally state that these rumours
are false and no heed should be
paid to them," the senior gov-
ernment official said.
He also reiterated the strong
statements made by President
Bharrat Jagdeo, and as was re-
ported in the Sunday Chronicle
in August of last year, when the
Guyanese Head of State as-
sured that "there is no secret
deal" with the World Bank or
any other donor to close the
Demerara Estates.
This was reiterated just a
week ago when President Jagdeo

if there is any change you will

SSPNRT CHANCE


ICC annual meeting allfl ,, :J



Substitutes to be allowed in ODIs


THE ICC chief executives'
committee (CEC) has
approved the introduction of
two innovations into all one-
day internationals from July
30.
The new regulations, which
involve the fielding restrictions and
the introduction of replacement
players, will be trialled for 10
months after which they will be
.reviewed by the Cricket
Committee which made the initial
recommendations at its 2006
meeting.
The change to the way that
fielding restrictions apply in
ODI cricket will see an increase
from 15 to 20 overs of
restrictions. These restrictions
will apply for the first 10 overs
of every innings plus two
additional blocks of five overs
which must be selected by the
fielding captain. The CEC
decided that the additional
'close-catcher' field restrictions
should only apply for the first
10 overs.
The CEC also approved
the introduction of football-


style replacements which will
permit sides to replace a
player at any stage of a
match. The replaced player
will be ruled out of the rest
of the match while the
replacement will be entitled
to assume any remaining
batting or bowling duties.
'Both players will receive a
cap.
These two innovations may
also be trialled during the NatWest
Challenge between England and
Australia starting on July 7. The
ECB and Cricket Australia will
decide whether this will be the case
after consulting with their
stakeholders to assess the feasibility
of introducing the changes within
the required timeframe.

TECHNOLOGY TRIAL
As well as the changes to
the ODI regulations, the CEC
also endorsed the proposal to
undertake a technology trial
during the Super Series in
Australia during October. This
will allow on-field umpires to
consult with the TV umpire ,on


any aspect of any decision with
the final decision remaining
with the on-field umpire. :
The only exceptions to this
will be line decisions, which will be
dealt with by the TV umpire, in
the same manner as at present, and
clean catches where the existing
process will also be retained. The
current practice for clean catches is
that they are only referred where
both umpires are unsighted as this
is one area where TV replays have
proved inconclusive.

CRICKET BATS
The CEC also approved
the establishment of an expert
panel to work with MCC and
bat manufacturers to review the
laws and regulations governing
the manufacture of cricket bats.
It approved the
recommendation from the
Cricket Committee that the
following principles should be
taken into account by the sub-
committee in its deliberations:
1. That the dimensions of the
bat should remain the same;
- 2. That the bat should have a

5. That the practice of

6. That any cover should be

of the bat;
7. Whether the bat should
remain, the colour of natural

The CEC considered the
specific case of the Kookaburra
bat used by several international
players and agreed that the bats
should be allowed pending a
final decision from MCC on
their legality in relation to
current regulations.
All of these decisions
followed recommendations
from the Cricket Committee
which comprises former
international cricketers and is
chaired by Sunil Gavaskar.
Other key agenda items from
the CEC have been referred
to the executive board for its
consideration tomorrow.
The outcomes of the
executive board meeting will
be announced at the ICC
Cricket Business Forum on
Tuesday. (Cricinfo).

chalk up 187 for eight in reply
to the 203 for seven made by
Malteenoes in their allotted
overs.
With the win, the Demerara
winners will now await a winner
from the Berbice zone to play
in the national semi-finals. The
winner of that match will then
clash with the Essequibo Zone
winners (yet to be announced-
but has drawn 'a bye) in the

finals of the competition.
The heroes for the
winners were Dennis Legay,
Steven Jacobs and Neil Barry.
After Barry and Jacobs set
the tone by scoring a .half-
century and 40 respectively, it
was the spin of Legay which
coiled around the DCC
batsmen.
Even though Orin Forde
also produced a wicket-taking
spell, the 'on the spot' bowling
of Legay resulted in the climb
towards the target, by the DCC
batsmen growing steeper and
steeper by the overs.
In all Legay finished with
two wickets for 10 runs from
eight overs.
Barry played the skipper's
knock for his Malteenoes team,
scoring a well-constructed 54.
He added 61 runs for the
seventh wicket with Jeremiah
Harris (17 not out). Prior to
Barry's innings it was number
three batsman Steven Jacobs
who scored an aggressive 40 off
43 balls hitting six fours in the
process. Also chipping in for
,the 'winners-Were Orin Forde
(19); Imran-Hassan ('t15)-and-


Dion Ferrier (12).
Bowling for DCC,
Christopher Barnwell,
Edward Burnett, Rayon
Thomas, Antonnel Atwell
and Dennis Squires picked
up one wicket each.
In DCC's innings even
though a few batsmen got starts,
no one stuck around long enough
to lead their team past the 200- 1
run mark
Of the lot Deonauth .Baksh
led the way with 39 runs, while
towards the end Jamal Hinckson
and Burnett put on a fighting
stand of 35 runs for the ninth
wicket. Hinckson who stayed
longer at the crease finished on
18 runs while Burnett finished
with 22.
Along with the two wickets
by Legay, Forde picked up two
wickets; his eight overs though
went for 49 runs.
Today the two teams are
expected to once again clash
at the same venue when they
face off in the Georgetown
Cricket Association (GCA)
40-over final which. will be
played for a cash prie'of $100
-000 ....... .......

Shell Beach:
hell Beach, a 90 mile stretch of beach along Guyana's north eastern Atlantic
coast is known mainly for its role as a nesting ground for four species of
endangered marine turtles which come to nest annually. The ecosystem of Shell
Beach has remained relatively intact over the years due to the absence of large
settlements along the beach and surrounding areas. This has been due mainly to the
inaccessibility of the areas as well as the inhospitable nature of the mangrove swamps.

HE biggest problem with going frog
kissing in search of a prince is that
the terrain is swampy. As you go
about looking for magic, it is far too easy to
get pulled into a quicksand pit and spend a
lot of time mucking around with a lot of
frogs.
Last year, I wrote an article called "If I'm so wonderful, why
am I still single?" which was based on a book written by the author
Susan Page titled 'If We're So In Love, Why Aren't We Happy'.
That article, one year later, is still a big conversation piece every-
where I go, and there is one particular area that needs a bit of clari-
fication the consequences of failing to say no to BTNs Better
Than Nothing relationships.

BTNs

When you aren't able to say no at the right moment, you end
up in a relationship or a series of relationships that are nice but
not great, or great in some ways but mediocre in others.
Most singles have the experience of falling in love with the
wrong person, a common topic of discussion.
Often, people attribute their propensity for
being attracted to inappropriate people to a
deep inner flaw that can be traced back to their
* childhood. Occasionally, personal pathology
may be involved. But most often, falling in
love with the wrong person is simply a natu-
ral, normal event.
The world is brimming over with appeal-
ing, sexy, competent, attractive, wonderful men and women. Most
of them aren't appropriate life-long mates for you for one reason
or another, but that does not mean you might not be very attracted
to any number of them. Falling in love with someone who is an
inappropriate life-long mate is the easiest thing in the world! The
problem is not falling in love with them. The problem is staying in
love with them! Just because there is good chemistry between the
two of you, don't feel enslaved to each other. 'No' is still an op-
tion.
A BTN is a "nice" relationship with the wrong person. It's
a relationship that drags on and on, even though it is only
partially satisfying, and the partners know it has a low prob-
ability of survival. BTNs are all those partners who don't love
you back the way you want to be loved. They are the 'commit-
ment-phobes' you stay with anyway, the old lovers who have
simply become a habit, the intimacy-avoiders who feel better


than no sex at all.
If you are in a transition period and a 'treading water' relation-
ship is all you want, then a BTN is better than nothing. But if a









life-long, intimate connection is what you seek, then BTNs are dan-
gerous; they present a major roadblock to find true love.
In the first place, BTNs consume time and energy that would
otherwise be available for meeting new people. Night after night,
you curl up next to this person you've become very used to and
watch TV. If a BTN doesn't take you out of circulation all together,
at least it slows you down. For you have to save evenings to spend
with your BTN, and you have to save energy to interact with him,
however unsatisfying that may be.
What's worse is that problem-solving with a BTN takes more
energy than usual because when the commitment between two people
is litmied, their willingness to make changes in order to improve
the relationship will also be limited. Rather than thinking, 'Barbara's
prlinbbly tight; I could tell her I love her more often. I know she
Treally wants this', the thinking is more likely to be 'I resent that
SBarbara doesn't like me
i, the way I am. She's
heriy BOllers-Dixon awfully demanding'.
SB le r x BTN's drain away your
good, positive energy in
endless, repetitive hassles. They, can actually add stress to your
life rather than help to reduce it. But an even worse problem with
BTNs Ii that they chip away, slowly but steadily, at your self-
esteem and sense of well-being. They make you doubt yourself.

BTNs and Self-Esteem

Self-esteem ultimately comes from within. But it must be
reinforced by positive messages from the environment and can
be destroyed without them. If your primary relationship is
with someone who doesn't fully appreciate and love you for
exactly who you really are, but instead criticises you or tries
to change you or picks fights with you or fails to cooperate
with you, then you will begin to see yourself, not as who
you are, but as the other person sees you. Since you don't


have the opportunity to experience )ourself in an) other in-
timate type relationship, you will begin to accept as real the
other person's view of you.
People choose to stay in BTN relationships because they
seem to be better than nothing. But they aren't. Even if they
have positive qualities to offset the negative ones, when you
spend a lot of time with a person who does not value your posi-
tive attributes or who actually turns them into something nega-
tive, you may have a hard time keeping your self-esteem in-
tact. If you never have a chance to experience yourself in a
setting where the real you is fully appreciated, you'll lose the
ability to appreciate yourself.
The fact that you are willing to be part of a BTN relationship
bespeaks a lack of self-confidence, because if you felt strongly within
yourself that you deserve more, you would not easily settle for a
BTN, only your second best qualities get reinforced. Daily, the evi-
dence mounts up that make unwise choices for yourself, that you
lack personal power and control over your life, that your taste in
partners is not so great.

Why Do We Syin BTNs

BTN relationships actually waste precious time and they are
deadening. Yet virtually all of us have had the experience of staying
in a relationship longer than we knew that was good for us. Why?
We stay in BTNs because we are.hooked on security, and we hold
on to the illusion of it even when we can clearly see that the
relationship is degenerating. We feel safer staying in a known
situation, however troubled; than venturing into an unknown
situation, however freeing it might be. We stay in BTNs because
we are more concerned about meeting our short-term intimacy needs
than our long-range life goals. We stay in BTNs because we have
brought the misguided idea that you can't have what you really
want in a relationship, and we believe we have to compromise. We
stay in BTNs because we misinterpret our feelings. When we feel a
deep longing for more intimacy or more commitment or closer sex
with a partner, we think that is love. It isn't love. It's pain, pain
caused by some deficiency in the relationship. But longing makes
us fee attached and makes us think we are in love.
We stay in BTNs because we find it simply too hard to get out
of them. We love the other person (not sufficient reason to stay in
a partnership with big problems); we think about the pleasant as-
pects of the relationship and the shared history and know it will be
painful to give these up. The problems of the BTN seem more ap-
pealing than the pain of loneliness.
But mostly, we stay in BTNs love relationships with the
wrong person because we didn't say no when it would have
been easy and then we lose track of the option of getting out.

IN A small but stunning ret-
rospective, the works of 13
Guyanese artists, reflecting
39 years of Guyana's nation-
hood, were recently put on
display in the United States
Capital, Washington DC.
The exhibition of Guyanese
art, under the theme 'Art, the
fabric of our Life', was
organised by the Guyana Em-
bassy in Washington,- in collabo-
ration with the Organisation of
American States (OAS). It was
coordinated by Guyanese-born
artist, Patsy Ann Rasmussen
(nee Willis), a graduate of
Guyana's Burrowes School of
Art.
Work by such renowned
artists as Dudley Charles,
Stanley Greaves, Ivor Thorn,
Hazel Shury, Jonathan Azore,
Andrew Light, Desmond Tho-
mas and Ms; Rasmussen was
among the pieces on display..
The showing was held in

Guyanese artists were exhibit-

commemorate a significant mile-

39th anniversary of its indepen-
dence.
Guyana's Ambassador to
the United States, Mr. Bayney
Karran, who is also Guyana's
Permanent Representative to
the OAS, saw the exhibition as
conveying a sense of the vital-
ity and diversity of the
Guyanese people.
"Guyanese culture is like a
pool into which has flowed the
streams of four continents -
America, Europe, Africa and
Asia. Guyana is a Caribbean

Evidence of co-accused used



to convict another in fraud trial


IN 1954, a jury in
Berbice used the
evidence of co-
accused, Balgobin, to
convict fellow accused
Jairam Gopaul, a Field
Clerk of Rose Hall
Estate, Canje, Berbice,
of falsification of
accounts.
Gopaul who was sentenced
to jail, appealed the conviction
and sentence on the ground that
the trial Judge did not direct the
jury on the proper use of the
unsworn testimony of one ac-
cused against the other.
The then Court of Appeal,,
constituted by Chief Justice
Frederick Malcolm Boland and
.Justices of Appeal Kenneth
Stoby and Roland Phillips, al-
lowed the appeal and set aside
the conviction and sentence.
Among other things, the'
Appellate Court found that the
trial Judge was guilty of non-di-.
rection, which was tantamount
to a misdirection of the jury.
At the close of the case for
the prosecution Balgobin elected
to give unsworn evidence from
the dock. His evidence impli-
cated the appellant. : ,
The trial Judge had directed,


the jury that anything said by
one accused in the absence of
the other was not evidence
against the other, and if said in
his presence, was evidence only
if the accused had adopted it by
words or conduct. He did not
direct the jury that Balgobin's
unsworn evidence was not evi-
dence against the appellant.
Appeal was allowed and
conviction qtiashed.
The Chief Justice, who de-
livered the judgment, noted the
appellant was convicted at the
Berbice Criminal Assizes. The
falsification alleged by the
Crown was that the appellant
had entered in a book kept by
him, the name of one Balgobin
as having worked, whereas he
knew that Balgobin had not
worked..
Appellant's defence was
that the overseer or headman had
instructed him to enter
Balgobin's name and he was un-
aware whether he had worked
or not.
Balgobin, who was charged
with aiding and abetting, in his
own defence, gave an unsworn
statement from the dock that he
told the appellant he had not
worked but was entitled to
"holidays with pay" (a system

MISADVENTURE


I am a male, 32, in a re-
lationship with a nice
irl for five years. Over
the last half year we've
discussed whether we are
meant to be life mates, and
we've even gone through
counselling to solve some
nagging issues. At this
stage, though I love her
dearly, I'm not feeling pas-
sion or convinced we are
soul mates.
I was just back home visit-
ing family. As I checked out at
the local organic grocery store,
the cashier and I agreed we


looked familiar. In a brief ex-
change at the register we
realized we went to school to-
gether. Later that day I remem-
bered my huge crush on the girl
who sat behind me.
She was so different than
the other girls I knew, a bril-
liant combination of kind-
heartedness, intelligence,
beauty and coolness. Even at
that age she had direction and
purpose in life. Anybody
who knew her had the sense
she was going to do good in
this world someday.
That premonition was dead-


on accurate. After finishing col-
lege she spent a few years in the
Peace Corps and is now finish-
ing nursing school. I tell you,
this to demonstrate what a tre-
mendously gifted and kind per-
son she .is. That night .I was
flooded with emotions, remem-
bering my big crush and falling
in love with the idea of who she
had become.
Next morning these emo-
tions ruled every second of my
being. Despite butterflies in
my stomach and- nervous
adrenaline, I went back to the
grocer. I said I was fascinated

QUESTION
How do I deal with employees who are not registered? Some of "o
these persons worked before and were never registered. Must I ".
pay contributions even though they do not have NIS numbers?
Who is responsible for them not being registered? '
ANSWER 1N
As the current employer, you are responsible for any registration
and payment of contribution for the period they are in your employ. ,,
Whilst essentially they need NIS numbers to ensure their contributions '
are posted against their records, the absence of an NIS number will I1
not be accepted as reason for not paying contributions. You must
register these persons immediately.
My advice is to register persons as soon as they are employed so
as to minimize problems which can lead to your prosecution. In the
meanwhile, whilst waiting on the NIS card (if you need to) contribution '
payments can be made, using the correct names, as per birth certificate, 4
along with the date of birth.
Remember, it is a violation of the Law when an employer
fails to register any employee, and fails to pay contributions as
prescribed.

Grammar
The Sentence
Reminder: A sentence fragment or non-sen-
tence is really an error that occurs when an in-
complete sentence is punctuated as if it were
complete.
There are three things you should look for
when reviewing your work for sentence frag-
ments.
1. First, look for a group of words without a
subject.
2. Next, be alert for a group lacking a verb,
especially a group that contains a verbal rather
than a complete verb.
3. Last, make sure that you have not mis-
taken a subordinate clause for a complete sen-
tence.
Note: Professional writers are privileged to
use sentence fragments for special effect
which can be to add emphasis to what they say

Mental Mathematics

It is a good thing to engage in mental mathematics
when shopping in order to answer questions such
as:
1. Do I have enough money?
2. Am I being charged the right price?
3. Is my change correct?
4. Will I have. enough money left for transportation?

-f there is someone next to you at this moment why
not stop a while and relate to him or her some of
your interesting shopping experiences?

Suppose you want to buy an extra item that was
not catered for. What questions do you need to
ask yourself' Think about.these things.

Adding or subtracting decimals is done in the same
way as for whole numbers. Pay attention to the
instructions accompanying the transaction.
Write the decimal points clearly and directly one
under the other. If you do this you will make sure
that all the figures that have the same place value
fall in the same column.
Here are some workings for you!

by Petamber Persaud
HE novel,
'Those that be
in Bondage',
written by A. R. F.
Webber was released in
1917, the year that saw
the official abolition of
immigrant labour from
India to British Guiana.
This novel was in the
same vein as Edward
Jenkins' 'Lutchmee
and Dilloo' published.
1877 describing the bit-
tersweet experiences of
East Indians in the
colony, exposing many
of the attendant ills of
that slavery by another
name.
And it falls into a significant
category of Guyanese first nov-
els, numbering four between
1877 and 1917.,
About this time. just after
-the release of his first novel,
Webber tried his hands at po-
etry, some poems good enough
to be included in the firsi col-
lection of local verses, 'Guianese
Poetry' edited by N. E..:
Cameron in 1931. Cameron ex-
plained how he went to great
trouble to persuade Webber to
release his work for publication
in te anthology because
Webber was of the opinion that
having his best poems appear-
ing first in a collection would
affect the eventual publication
of his own book of poetry.
A year before the anthology
came out, Cameron founded the
British Guiana Literary Society
of which Webber was a member.
Webber's literary inclination
found its Way into the
Chronicle Christmas Annual,
first as a contributor and then
as editor of the 1920 issue. This
gazinelis_-now-ninety years
old, outliving many local, re-
gional and international journals.
This author, editing The Annual
for the second consecutive year,


is proud to be part of this tra-
dition.
A. R. F. Webber, poet,
short-story writer and novelist,
also employed his pen to fight
for constitutional reforms in the
colony, using the New Daily
Chronicle which he was editing
at the time to debate the issue
with the English-born editor of
the Daily Argosy, Sam Lupton.
Webber believed in dialogue.
In his poem 'Guiana' he asked,
'Wouldst thou be great? /Then
grapple to thy soul these primal
truths. /Greatness is neither
born of intolerance nor schism,
/But 'tis a sturdy growth of
open minds'!
P. H. Daly described
Webber as one 'whose faith in
the fate of British Guiana never
wearied nor waned, nor faded
nor faltered'. And that's saying
a lot for a person not born in
Guyana.
Webber was born on the is-
land of Tobago on January 1,
1879. Some twenty years later,
he came to live.in Guyana at a
crucial and exciting period of its
'history. In his own words, he
descnbed that era as not being
'jejune or insipid'. He was a
kitrness to'many changes and
innovations like the introduc-
Stin of the. electric tram service,
the 1905 and 1924 riots, the end
to East Indian Immigration, the
first issue of $1 and $2 paper.
money, educational reforms, the
great rice embargo, glory days of
sugar and its greatest decline,
and the 'abrogation of the 1891
Constitution'.
Webber's first taste of
Guyana came with his intro-
duction to its commerce sec-
tor, working in the Berbice
merchant firm of Crosby and
Forbes of which his uncle
Forbes was a partner. There-
after, his rise in the public's.
eye was swift, next he be-
came Secretary to Chapman
& Company. Webber then
moved into the mining sector,.
l"first as Company's Secretary
* to Peter's Mine and an at-
tachment to Mara Mara Gold
Company.


1879


Another aspect of business
in which he Was involved was
advertising, first attached to the
Daily Argosy and then Messrs.
Booker Bros., McConnell &
Co., Limited.
But the call to the printed
word was great. This was where
Webber made the most telling
contribution to this land.
In 1919, he was appointed
acting editor of the Daily
Chronicle succeeding C. W.
Marchant, gravitating to the
editorship position until 1925
when the paper went into liq-
uidation.
During this time, his
popularity increased enough
to earn him a seat in the
Combined Court as Financial
Representative in 1921. He
was re-elected at, the General
Elections in 1926.
The New Daily Chronicle
came into being in 1926 as the'
official organ of the Popular
Party with Webber as editor.
The paper was branded' a
'sensationalising paper' :but
made significant progress to-
wards constitutional reforms in
1928. In .February of.that year,
Webber was part f a delegation
to England meeting with Secre-
tary of State, L. S. Amery, on
the above issue.
In his book, 'An Innocent.
Abroad', Webber recorded
that journey. His other tray--
elogue was .'Life in. New
York', recording his visit' to
America.
The life of Webber was al-
ways connected to the printed
word. Vincent Roth recalled in
his memoirs the help his father.
received from Webber in the
process of publishing the trans-
lation of Schomburgh's 'Travels
in British Guiana'.
For his work in newspaper,.
Webber was made a Fell wof
the Institute of Journalists. But
not before his struggle, in col-
laboration with Herbert de


1932


Lisser (author of 'Jane's Ca-
reer') for press freedom and for
the formation of the first West
Indian Press Association.
A. R. F. Webber died while
on duty. 'Though I go with
work undone/ 'Tis better to
leave the fields aglow/ Than
to wait and watch the fires


grow dim/ And steal, away in
the still and darkening
night'. He died on Wednesday
June 29, 1932 on a steamer
going to Bartica but not be-
fore publishing his magnum
opus 'Centenary History and
Handbook of British Guiana'
in 1931.

Where life abounds in the superli


By Linda Rutherford

IT WAS their last day of filming. He, Ajay and
Patricia were headed towards the mountains. It
was just after sunrise when they started out, and as
they travelled, they talked, about this, that and the other,
but mostly about the documentary they were working on,
for which they were having a hard time finding a title.

"It was really not coming.
Of course, it was around 06:30

probably creativity at that.mo-
ment is not very high. Neverthe-
less, we were trying to brain-
storm about different things
when, suddenly, I saw a special
cloud... of the. sun going

moment..."
Asking the driver to pull over
a bit, they eagerly alighted from
the vehicle.
"I really wanted to capture
this image in photograph and also
in the video... it was a beautiful

additional minute-or two, just to
look at the mountain. And then,
as magic, the title came to our
minds... as we were inspired by
the mountain. The Kanukus
were full of life... full.of.light.
Indeed, the mountains were

'mountains of life'..."

stress the importance of sustain-
able management in the preser-
vation of such magnificent natu-
ral resources for the benefit of
not just the local communities in
its immediate environs, but the
entire nation as well. The 'bush-
mout' is the area between the
end of the savannah and at least
a mile or so into the forest
proper.

Locale/
topography
Located some 200 or so
miles from the city, in the heart
of the Rupununi Savannahs in
south-western Guyana, 'the
Kanukus', as the precambrian
massif is fondly referred to, is
regarded internationally as the
custodian of one of the last re-
maining stands of pristine tropi-
cal forests in the world, prima-
rily because of its relative isola-
tion from the rest of the coun-
try.
Because of its irregularity in
height, ranging from 150 m to
900 m (492 ft 2,952 ft) above
sea-level, it is also revered for its
abundance and variety of plant
and animal life, known today as
biodiversity, short for biological
diversity. This profusion of flora
and fauna, the experts say, is
largely due to the many habitats
(eco-systems) to be found the
higher you go into the moun-
tains, since climatic conditions at
certain levels of elevation would


tend to favour one species ovej
the other.
Among habitats to be
found at the lower elevation.
are your savannahs or open
grassland as they are called;
gallery forests, as the thickets
alongside streams are known;
and semi-deciduous forests,
meaning those forests where
the trees lose their leaves fo

are where you'll find your typi-
cal evergreen rainforests, while
the higher areas proliferate with
what are known as montane ev-
ergreen forests. As you go
higher, however, what you'll
find is that the vegetation be-
comes sparser and sparser, and
that whatever forest cover there
is, is kind of on the short side
because of the strong, cold
winds. These forests are known
as elfin forests.
- Among plant-life that
abounds in the Kanukus are the
bulletwood tree from which we
get the malleable substance called
balata; the Congo pump tree, the
characteristic multi-lobed leaves
of which are used as a kitchen
remedy for biliousness among
other maladies; and-your-orchids,
which tend to favour the higher
altitudes.

Among your mammalians are
the six species of cats that are
native to the area, namely the
jaguar with its tell-tale black
spots, reputedly the largest fe-
line in all of the Americas; the
puma, popularly known as a
'mountain lion' because of its
close resemblance to the 'King of
the Jungle'; a short-legged, wea-
sel-like 'critter' called a jagua-
rundi; the doe-eyed ocelot,


species of monkey which

Statistics
According to statistics, the
Kanukus, which runs in an east-
westerly direction and is divided
into two by the Rupununi River,
is home to an incredible 350 spe-
cies of birds, which is the
equivalent of half Guyana's avian
population. This includes the
Harpy Eagle, reputedly the
world's most powerful raptor -
a documentary on which, titled
'Flight of the Harpy Eagle' com-
missioned by the National Geo-
graphic Society Explorer and
filmed by world-renowned biolo-
gist/cinematographer, Neil Rettig
- first brought the Kanukus to
public attention and, ultimately,
fame, back in 1991.
Statistics also show that as
much as 70 to 80 per cent of the
country's mammals are to be
found in the area. This is in ad-
dition to an approximate 6,000
different kinds of plants, and the
2,300 varieties of animals to be
found there, inclusive of its rich
and diverse amphibian, reptilian,
piscine and invertebrate popula-
tions.
Listed among the prized
species of the animal kingdom
are the black caiman, said to be
the largest of the alligator fam-
ily and to favour slow-moving
rivers, lakes, streams, flooded
savannahs and wetlands; and the
arapaima, the world's largest and
possibly oldest fresh-water fish.
Both these species are endan-
gered.
In the line of indigenous
peoples, just two ,of the nine
Amerindian nations native to


Guyana make their home in the
area. These are the Wapishanas,
who tend to favour the south
Rupununi, as the area south of
the Kanukus are called, and the
Macushis, who predominate the
north Rupununi. Of the 18 com-
munities which directly use the
resources of the Kanukus, just
five to six, namely
Parikwarinawa, Meriwau,
Rupunau, Shea, Sand Creek, and
Maruranau are predominantly
populated by Wapishanas. The
others Katoka, Yupukari,
Kaicumbay, Parishara, Nappi,
Hiowa, Kumu, Quarrie, Moco


Moco, Shunilab, and Quiko are
predominated by Macushis. The
village of St. Ignatius, however,
tends to be somewhat mixed.
An interesting thing that
came out in the video was hear-
ing a Rupununi resident, Mr.
Cedric Buckley, a head-teacher
from Shunilab Village, say that in
the ancient days, the people
lived in the mountains, and that
it was only since the coming of
the missionaries that they have
begun to live as they do today.
His exact words were:
"There are special spiritual be-
liefs that both the Macushis and


the Wapislmnas share, even
though their great-grandparents
lived in the mountains years
gone by. It's only recently when
the Church came, that the
people cam$ out of the forest to
live in the savannahs. So, they
look at the mountains as a
mother, 'cause there they can get
almost anything they want."

IScience H
Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. Today we'll
look at Do living things grow? And last week's re-
view.

I would like fine out, do living things grow?

Last week's exercise was on the subjects: Do living
things respond to stimuli? And Do all living things, move?
Then there was a question, "I would like fine out, do
living things grow?"
The simplest test is to plant them, to see whether they
will grow.

Follow these experiments and they would help answer a
lot of questions.

Experiment # 1: Take a large test-tube, and roll up
some newspaper so that it fits in exactly, with some space
in the centre. Half-fill the tube with water, and shake it
so that the paper becomes thoroughly wet. Now take
three or four seeds which have been soaked for an hour,
and push. them between the paper and the glass of the
tube. You will be able to see what happens to them.

The ginger and tiger-nuts can be planted in a tin or
beaker containing moist sand.
Plant some other seeds of the same kind in moist soil,
in plant-pots or boxes. Water them regally. They will be
needed later in the term.

animal without killing it?

Recently. surgeons ha\e found a way of sewing back

provided the operation can be carried out immediately.
What does this sho\\?

Experiment # 3: Collect some toads pawn from a
pond, or if that is impossible, some young tadpoles. Put
about ten tadpoles into a large beaker full of pond water.
Add some green pond weed to the water. Notice how
these animals move about, and what they appear to be
feeding on. Put one into a smaller quantity of water in a
watch-glass or tin lid, so that you can examine it care-
fully with a magnifying glass (usually called lens). To
use a lens properly it must be held close to one eye.
Bring the tadpole in its watch-glass nearer and nearer
until it can be seen. clearly. If you hold the lens far from
your eye, the tadpole will be much less highly magnified.

The boy in the photo is demonstrating the correct
way to use a lens to examine a small object.


Experiment # 2: Take a plant of Coleus, or a cassava
stem, cut it into pieces about 15 cm long, and stand them
in water. Pull the leaves from a plant of Bryophyllum
(life plant), and place them on damp newspaper, in a
bowl. Do these parts of plants grow?
Catch a gecko, and hold it by the tail. The tail will
probably beak off. Is the tail still alive? Can it grow into
a new gecko? Can the gecko grow a new tail? Keep
both pieces to find out. The gecko can be fed with in-

House and Old Canje Swing Bridge.


Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to these columns. Do not place undue
emphasis on memorising material which you do
not understand. For instance, it is said that biolo-
gists can draw the nitrogen cycle in nature from
memory but they can also explain why it is as it
is. This is because they understand all the chemi-
cal reactions involved before they try to remem-
ber the diagram. Keep good company!
'Bye.

Pointers
1. The original New Amsterdam started up in the vi-
cinity of Fort Nassau, some fifty-five (55) miles up the
Berbice River during the first half of the 18th century.

2. New Amsterdam began as a small township with
some buildings erected in a line following the route of
the Berbice River bank up river.

3. After 1784 the Dutch moved the seat of Government
downstream towards the ocean.

4. New Amsterdam was exactly placed toward the
confluence of the Berbice and Canje Rivers.

produce the hinterland yielded.

6. The name New Amsterdam was chosen because
most of the persons who held shares in the town were
from the Dutch province of New Amsterdam in Hol-
land.

7. One important landmark of the town was an impos-
ing building called the Government House which was
built at the end of the town close to the Canje Creek.

8. There was a swing bridge across the Canje Creekl

to find out about up river and down river when you read
about the movement of New Amsterdam? (Those of

certain of this.)

The Poem

faufiq Rafat Pakistan

The screaming wind transplants the soil
Particle by particle. The roar of the sun
I silenced. by distance, but its muscular rays
(rack the most stubborn rock like a nut.
And, yes, the sea: biting into the beach head
With an ancient rasping sound. All the forces
Of nature crowding man off his perch
Sp that the land can return to its ways.

In this city of scarce sweet water and little rain
Each man protects his rood of greenery
*ith panicked care. The municipality ploughs
The heart of the road for a strip of grass
And jealousy counts its trees on weekdays.
The bald sparrow scrounges in the dustbin;
Orfly the spendthrift gul-mohur spills its gold
In the pitiful spring that time allows.

We wear our features to suit the landscape;
And malice moves like a rainless cloud .
Over the chalk cliffs of the teetch.
From opposite the terminus I stare
At the commuters storming the gates, and I see
Where the roofs bulges the effeminate rise
Of a dune, and where the lamp-post stands
The arms of the cactus lifted in prayer.

1. What forces of nature does the poem mention? What
does each one do or cause? What has each man to pro-
tect? Why?
2. What do you suppose the gul-mohur to be? Why?
3. Put line 17 into your own words. What is meant by the
term, malice?
4. With what is the lamp-post compared? Do you think it
' is a suitable comparison for the poem? What other images
do you notice? Write them down. Tell what impressions
the images make upon you?
5. Do you think the poet is feeling disgust and hatred, self-
pity, or unconscious love of place?

Composition Writing

Imagine that you have been asked by a wealthy friend who
lives overseas, to search on her behalf for a suitable house
.situated in the Essequibo countryside. It should be large
enough to accommodate her family of three, as well as
her newly adopted baby girl, and also be suitable for hous-
ing her beauty salon and entertaining clients.

supply the details of the properties: i.e., number of bed-
rooms; sizes of the hall, living room, and kitchen; extra


rooms on the ground floor; outdoor facilities such as size
of grounds, extent of garden, tennis court, swimming pool;
proximity of town and highway..

Write a formal report for your friend in which you give
details of the property (using some of the information in
the picture above) and suggest the advantages and disad-
vantages of the house in the picture.

Imaginative or Creative Composition

The personal element in imaginative writing

Suppose you have been given the instruction: "Give an
account of a television programme series." This kind of
question in addition to requesting a factual composition
can introduce the personal element by stating the phrase,
"that you enjoyed and describe those qualities that you
have found especially pleasing."


The Power of Persuasion


Read the following extracts in which two views of mari-
juana smoking are presented.

a) We do not know whether ganga creates psychoses, but
we know tp our cost that psychotics use ganga. The
hidden desires-released when people are rid of their inhibi-
tions are obviously dangerous to society. The maintenance
of order in society depends on people being willing to take
a firm line. Obviously, different drugs have different ef-
fects on different people but as a matter so important to
the public interest one cannot afford to take chances. Ir-
responsible individuals cannot be allowed to indulge them-
selves at the risk of harming others. Those who are inter-
ested in using ganga on the open market urge that it is the
prohibitions of the use of these drugs which makes them
popular. We know better. People need to be restrained in
their best interest.


Your response must then contain personal experience only; b) The coffee habit, like the marijuana habit, is said to

our own ways of easing the tension. Ganga releases the


One of the most helpful ways of recognizing new words
is through context; that .is, by noting the connection in
which they appear in the sentence. Several kinds of con-
text clues help one to determine the approximate meaning
of unfamiliar words.

1. One kind of context clue is the synonym; that is, a word
that has approximately the same meaning as the unfamiliar
word used in the sentence.
A stiletto, or dagger, hung at his belt.
2. Another kind of context clue is the antonym, or word
with a meaning directly contrary to that of the unfamiliar
word.
Unlike his excitable wife, Jerry had a phlegmatic dis-
position.
3. Sometimes a previous word or sentence will describe a
mood or a situation that gives meaning to the new word.
It was as silent and humiliated team that trudged into
the locker room after the upset. Nor did the lugubrious
expression on the coach's face serve to lift their spirits.
4. Sometimes the unfamiliar word is a summary word that
can be understood from the illustrations.
The new law provided for an extensive conservation
programme new dams to be built, reservoirs constructed,
whole acres reforested, and crop rotation encouraged with
subsidies.
5. Sometimes the meaning of a word can be inferred from
the general context.
The doctor prescribed a sedative to relieve the patient's
suffering.
6. Sometimes the unfamiliar word is explained by an ap-
positive.
Krilium, a chemical soil conditioner, is derived from
acrvlonitrite, a chemical obtained' from natural gas.
7. Sometimes a sentence following the one in which the
unfamiliar word appears will give the explanation.
Stereophotography has aroused great enthusiasm
among hobbyists.
Three-dimensional pictures, especially on colour films,
are not merely accurate images of the subject; they look
like the real thing.
8. Sometimes the reading material supplies an outright defi-
nition of the new word.
The defendant entered a plea of nolo contendere. This
action means that the defendant, without pleading inno-
cent or guilty, does not deserve to contest the charge
against him ..


pressure.

1. a) Write down, then discuss with a colleague, the ways
in which each writer tries to persuade his reader to agree
with his point of view. How logical and forceful is each
presentation?
b) How much supporting evidence is acceptable in each
presentation?
2. Write two pamphlets to be posted on the notice boards
in your school or work-place persuading colleagues to give
dangerous habit forming activities a 'wide birth.' Let your
argument be presented logically and forcefully and reflect
in-depth study of your chosen topics.

Solution to Punctuate and Capitalise
It had rained all night. It had rained most of the morning.
Consequently,: we had decided after all to postpone our
trip to the mountains. I settled down to read a book.
Suddenly I became aware of the sunshine- beating down
on a green, fresh earth. In a moment the sky cleared.
Just then John came into the room, "Shall we go?" he
asked.

"By all means." I jumped up, gathered my- things to-
gether, ran out of the house and happy once more, called
to Richard, "We're leaving in two minutes. Are you com-
ing?"

Breathing Techniques that eases Stress
Recently we met someone who has at this time suddenly
realized that CXC is serious study. He is preparing for
next year's sitting. He admits he is unable to relax. Let's
hope that he is willing to try getting better.

If you too are suffering from a build up tension, try the
following hints all day long. You can tell a friend and col-
league about your results.

1. Rebuke yourself o[r being so unsure of yourself espe-
cially at this stagc
2. Breathe in and )old your breath lowly, then slowly re-
lease it.
3. Pause for a few moments then as you breathe in slowly,
relax your forehead and jaw.
4. Be quiet for a few moments then go on with what you
were doing, mov, ig slowly and smoothly.

into its intricate little web of
intrigue a breathtaking vista
of what the area is like, seen
from the air.
Below, a mottled yellow-
black jaguar paces around and
around in ever-widening circles,
his long feline tail impatiently
swishing every now and then, as
he searches fruitlessly for a
comfy position in which to bed
down.:
Some distance away, a little
girl, young sibling astride her
.puny hips, takes a leisurely af-
ternoon stroll along the arid sa-
vannah. Behind them, the majes-
tic Kanukus beckons... its mist-
shrouded indigo slopes a maze
of deep, dark secrets yet untold.

tree, quietly observing the go-
ings on around him, is a lone
macaw, his colourful plumes in
sharp contrast with his earthy

his hopes and aspirations for a

had a dream... about the con-

protection of Guyana's natural
heritage... our rich biodiversity.
But now I know that I'm not
alone. It's a dream that is evolv-

a story."
This saga of his involves a
very special place; an extraordi-
nary land, he calls it; one that
is almost untouched by man;
the existence of which but very
few knew of.
"I'm talking of a land where
jaguars... people... rivers... gi-
ant trees... ruled all sovereignty.
It existed in such a remote place
that most people couldn't imag-
ine it. It was pristine! Vibrant!
Alive!"

land, many cities grew... and
there, more and more people
craved for natural resources. In
some places, fertile soils were
sealed with concrete and the
landscape completely trans-
formed. As people constantly
search for new sources of
wealth, they expand and con-
quer new frontiers, pushing na-
ture away."
As he speaks, images of
high-rise buildings, flashing
neon lights and fancy double-
decker buses race across the
screen. It certainly doesn't look
anything like Guyana.
"The trees of many for-
ests were cut down and

From page XVII
our wild creatures captured
for sale... and in danger of
becoming extinct."
The ominous whirr of a
power saw lends credence to his
story, as the background music
grows more and more fren-
zied... as though something
portentous is about to happen.
Something does indeed hap-
pen. "Some people started no-
ticing that once a plant or an ani-
mal disappeared from a region,
it might be gone forever. And
along with it, we lose so much
more... our culture values....
herbal medicines and the pass-
ing of traditional knowledge
from the elders to the children...
even our spiritual well-being is
at risk."
A flurry of activity, all mim-
icking the traditional mores to
which he refers, punctuates this.
bit of revelation. Somewhere in
the distance, a- lonely flautist
finds solace communing with
the ancestors.
Skilled raconteur that he is,
Kojo now moves in for the kill.
"The land of my story, as you
may have guessed, lies indeed
very close to our horizon...
close to my heart... and I be-
lieve close to yours as well. It
is found in our na-
tion... our interior.
These. enchanting a -'
lands... with magical
names... Kanuku...
Rupununi... have
been watched over
by. our Amerindian
brothers and sisters
for many genera-
tions. Their foot-
prints light on the
land."
From this point
on, the tour .
progresses at a more ,.
leisurely pace, exam-
ining such critical is-
sues plaguing the re- .
gion as the annual
forest fires which
keep getting bigger
and bigger with each
passing year, and the
regular intrusion by
foreign nationals pri-
marily in search of
gold and diamonds, and what is
being done at the govetimental
level as well as at the commu-
nity level to address them.
For instance, one of the-
measures currently being imple-
mented at the community level,
and pioneered by CI, to pre-
serve the biological and cultural
diversity 'of the Kanukus, in-
volves the fostering of a better
understanding of how the 18
villages which most rely on the
area for their day-to-day needs
utilise the many resources to be
found within its boundaries.
"Eighteen of the commu-
nities around the Kanukus,"


according to Kojo, "have been
meeting to discuss the. future
of their land. They mapped
the area to understand how
they use... how far into the
mountains they have to go to
farm, fish or hunt; where
they collect wild food or the
material necessary to build.
their houses; they've re-
corded everything... includ-
ing how many times and how
intensely they use these ar-
eas. Now that they know
more about their needs, they
understand better their rela-
tionship with the mountain..
They want to keep their land
bountiful."
The documentary also
looks briefly at how the resi-
dents of Nappi and
neighboring villages like
Katoka have been able, again
with the help of CI, to put the
resin from the bulletwood tree,
known locally as balata, to pro-
ductive use while at the same
time conserving the source by
making little figurines which
they sell both here and abroad.
Education-wise, the focus
shifts momentarily to what is
being done in schools through-
out the length and breadth of
the Rupununi to teach children
about the importance of their


environment, which activity the
young ones enjoy immensely..
As one head-teacher obh-
'serves: "When we get back into, .
the classroom [from a field.'
trip], they would say to me:'
'Sir, when are we going back
again... we enjoy these trips...
we want to have a look at the
birds... and the bees... and the
ants'."
The talk then moves to the
importance of establishing pro-
tected areas systems, which de-
velopment is soon to be realized
here in Guyana after years of
planning, discussion and nego-
tiation... .


"Guyana does not yet have
a system of protected areas, but
recognizes that as a member of
the global family, that it has an
obligation to conserve its
biodiversity and preserve the
integrity of its ecosystem."
This reassurance comes
from CI Guyana's former Ex-
ecutive Director, Major General
(r'td.) Joseph Singh, who demit-
ted office recently to take up
another post after serving the
organisation for almost four
years. Singh, a career soldier
With more than a mere passing
interest in the environment,
joined CI in August 2001.
Singh's proclamation is
backed by President Bharrat
Jagdeo who declares:-"We have
a duty... an obligation... to
make 'sure that when our term,
is up and a new government
takes over, that we pass on the
same patrimony in an untouched
way. Untouched, not in the
sense of not being utilised for
the benefit of people, but un-
touched in the sense that it
would be sustainable."
One way of fulfilling this
duty, the President says, "is to
ensure that we have a protected
areas system where we can
manage the utilisation of these
resources in a sustainable way."


The filmm ends on a positive
note, with Kojo reiterating:
"Like I told you before.'.. I am
not dreaming alone. My dream
to protect our pristine remote
pliaces'is shared today with
many other people, including
our government. And more im-
portant, yet, it is shared by the
people that live in those places.
They want to know how they
can best manage their precious
resources to keep them healthy
and abundant."
The documentary is to be
broadcast all year round on
all the local television sta-
tions. ,,

their her studies back home. She said on her return she realized that some of the girls her
age were unaware of many things about which she would try to form a conversation. She said
a lot of the young girls here are not open-minded and lack exposure to the wider world and
other cultures, and are unaware of many things happening in other places.
According to Lumumba, the pageant committee has so far had no problems with Ms. Franklin. He
said she has so far displayed "the best" attitude ever by a Miss Guyana queen at Miss Universe.
"She was excellent... she was exceptional... she behaved herself well... she didn't harass anyone,"
Lumumba told the local press in attendance at the Press Conference and lunch at Water Chris hotel
Tuesday.
Generally speaking about her experience, Franklin said she had an absolutely wonderful time.
"It was an amazing trip... I'm happy to be back home (but) it's sad to say that I had a small
amount of support," were just some of her statements to the public through the media.
She said her performance was very good, and even Lumumba called and congratulated her on her
excellent answers during the .interview posted online on the Miss Universe website at
www.missuniverse.com.
She said her national costume designed by Derek Moore and dubbed 'Kiss of the Victoria Regia'
was a hit with many of the other delegates and attracted a lot of attention. But Lumumba pointed out
that the costume sparked controversy in Bangkok because the people of Thailand are also claiming the
Victoria Regia, saying it is found in Thailand too.
The queen said being at Miss Universe was never about Candisie Franklin, but all about Guyana,
since everyone sees you as Guyana and not as the person you are.
"It is not about you... it's about your country... you can say a million things about yourself, they
would not listen."
She recommended that the local committee should seek a girl who knows much about her country,
recognizes the importance of promoting Guyana, and is tactful enough to lift Guyana higher over the
many other queens trying to do the same for their countries too.
She said with her experience at this pageant, she has come to the realisation that that quality is one
that is sought when the Miss Universe Organisation is choosing its winner.
Candisie has since resumed studies at the University of .Guyana and special arrangements have
been made for her to sit her final exams during the university's summer break in July/August.
Her other plan is to embark upon a massive campaign against Domestic Violence, her plat-
form topic for the Miss Guyana Universe pageant, and something about which she feels strongly.

GROWING
TOMATO
IN GUYANA


INTRODUCTION
Tomato belongs to
the family Solanaceae
and its scientific name
is Lycopersicon
esculentum. Tomatoes
can be considered one
of the most important
vegetables. The fruits
can be cooked or eaten
row. Additionally, this
vegetable is used ex-
tensively in the can-
ning industry in produc-
ing juice, sauce,
ketchup and paste


VARIETIES
In Guyana, the va-
Creole' and' English'.
Within the Creole there
are the small rounded
cherry types and the
large flat types. 'En-
glish' are those variet-
ies that are imported
and include Heat Mas-
ter, Heatwave,
Capitan, Alafua Win-
ner, TA, TB, and TC
etc..


CULTIVATION
The crop is ini-
tially grown on seed
trays or seedbed and
transplanted four
weeks after germi-
nation. Tomatoes re-
quire a well-drained
fertile soil rich in or-
ganic matter. A
slightly acid soil with
a pH of 5.8 6.8 is
ideal. This crop is
best grown in the dry
season with water
supplied either by in-
termittent rain or by
irrigation. Trans-
planting is best done
in the afternoon to
avoid transplanting
shock. The recom-
mended spacing
should be 60cm be-
tween rows and
45cm along rows
( a p p r o x.
37,000plants/ha).
After transplanting,
plants should be irri-
gated continuously for
Sthlee. days tgger .,ftLe4.


2 times weekly.

FERTILIZER
A soil test should be
done to determine the
fertilizer requirement.
As a guide the follow-
ing recommendation
should be followed;


Urea

180 kg/ha
30% at trans-
planting,(1.5g/plant)

(TYLCV).

This disease be-

Geminivirus group.

Symptoms include
dwarfism and curling in
newly developed
leaves. Curling, twist-
ing and interveinal yel-
lowing in lower leaves.
Control includes good
crop management
practices and sprayed
insecticides to control
vector (Admire,
Abamectin, Basudin,
Regent etc.)

infection that causes
heavy loses in the wet
season, especially on
soils that are acidic and
water logged. The'first

can result in heavy

pillar, which kills young
plants by feeding on
the shoot apex, it also
results in head splitting.
Spraying with insecti-
cides such as Amidor,
Regent and Vertimec
can effectly control the
insect.

HARVESTING
Harvesting
begins 8-10 weeks
after transplanting
depending on the
variety and fruit
weight can range
from 1/4 2 pounds
per fruit. Yield
ranges from 25 -60
tones per hectare in
Guyana.

tree); Melaleuca leucodendron
(Paper tree) and Blighia sapida
(Akee tree). -
This exercise was in keep-
ing with this year's World En-
vironment Day theme, 'Green


cities: Plan for the planet'. The
objective of the activity was to
create an awareness of the di-
versity of trees found on Cam-
pus and the important roles
they play in our lives. Trees,-
apart from their aesthetic value
provide environmental, social,
cultural and economic benefits.
Therefore, in "greening" the city
i.e. making the city environmen-
tally friendly and energy effi-
cient, green spaces in the yards
of homes and businesses are en-
couraged.


The Tokoye Club, which-
was formed in 2003 by a
group of Natural Sciences
students, seeks to create an
awareness of Guyana's bio-
logical diversity and issues
relating to the environment,
through education and .par-
ticipation in biological, con-
servation and environmental
programmes. The club has
been financing all of its ac-
tivities, including the tree-la-
belling exercise, through
fundraising events.

More Physical
Changes

LAST week we discussed the
deterioration of the digestive
system in the elderly dog. To-
day we will continue with the
failing of the Circulatory
System as the dog gets older.
With advancing age the
muscles of the heart weaken.
This is quite common in dogs.
If the pump (heart) can't push
the blood throughout the bodyv-


then the other organs (e.g. liver,
kidneys, lungs.) in need of nu-
trients (via the blood) also suf-
fer as a result. Actually, the con-
dition can be quite chronic and
insidious. The deterioration of
the coronary muscles can creep
along over the period of years
quite unnoticed before any overt
signs exhibit themselves.

Symptoms

Firstly, one begins to notice
that 'Rex' is not as active as


'- t ,-' ..7;':- .... I. ,_

THIS IS an example of cruelty to animals. Yet it is "traditional"
for iguanas to be held captive and transported this way. .


- continued


uretics also can be of consider-
able assistance when given un-
der veterinary supervision.
Old dogs adjust poorly to
physical and emotional stress.
Their hearts, livers, kidneys and
metabolism often are not able to
meet the increased demands
placed upon them. Sudden dec-
ompensation can occur.
Special .-care must be
taken with the older dog to


usual. He lies. around all day
and is reluctant to greet you on
your return home from work.
The animal loses weight and the
general overall condition of the
animal strikes you as not being
right, even though you can't re-
ally put your finger on the ex-
act reason for your impression.
It could be that his eyes don't
have that "sparkle"; his coat
might not be as glossy as be-
fore; his tongue not as pink,
and so on. I have a little test that
I use (or advise clients to use)
to determine the adequacy of
the heart function and the blood
circulation: press the gums
firmly with your forefinger; the
area will be come white. On the
release see how quickly the
gums 'pink-up' again. If the spot
remains white (pale), you can
be reasonably assured that
something is wrong with the
blood circulatory system.
As the heart muscles be-
come weaker, the condition is
reflected in the dog's unwilling-
ness to climb the stairs or his
slothfulness in getting up and
going to the food bowl. This in-
activity leads to a visible loss of
muscle mass. There is always
some respiratory distress to be
seen in dogs with progressed
heart failure associated with age.
Some dogs show a shortness of
breath This is especially eni-
dent after excitement or exercise.
Some old dogs with heart fail-
ure develop a cough which is
more prominent during the
mght.
Being overweight is a seri-
ous complicating factor in heart
disease. Fat dogs must be made
to lose weight. A low salt diet
may be of real aid in treating
dogs with congestive heart fail-
ure. Heart medications and di-

prevent chilling. When wet,
he should be toweled dry and
kept in a warm/ room. An
older dog is less tolerant to
extremes of heat. Changes in
his diet or drinking water,
can also stress him. His di-
gestive tract and its bacterial
flora are geared to his


present diet. When changes
are necessary, make them
slowly. Add small amounts of
the new diet while gradually
reducing the old. The secret
to the care of the old dog is
moderation in all things:
Make changes by evolution -
not revolution.
