Critical challenges dominate



CARICOM Summit agenda


By RICKEY SINGH
in St. Lucia

CRITICAL trade and
e c o n o m i c
development issues,
including rising oil prices, a
gloomy future for sugar
exports to Europe and relief
from the region's debt
burden, are expected to
dominate the 26th annual
Caribbean Community
Summit which gets underway
this afternoon in St. Lucia.
Differences over
implementation arrangements
for' the single market


component of the Caribbean
Single Market and Economy
(CSME) involving primarily
countries of the Organisation of
Eastern Caribbean States
(OECS), will also be one of the
sensitive agenda issues to be
addressed, possibly in a plenary
session tomorrow and not later
than Tuesday.
Also high on the summit
agenda is the recurring crime
and security problems and
challenges facing the
Community as a whole, and, in
particular, Jamaica, Trinidad and
Tobago, Guyana and, to a lesser
extent, Barbados.


The increasingly
contentious issue of the future
of West Indies Cricket,
worsened by current
controversies between the West
Indies Cricket Board and the
West Indies Players Association
is "most likely to provoke some
sharp exchanges", according to
one Prime Minister who did not
wish to be on record.
Fresh from yesterday's
first-ever one-day dialogue with
parliamentary opposition
leaders, the CARICOM Heads
of Government will begin their
four-day summit with a
traditional ceremonial opening at


St Lucia's premier holiday
resort, the 'Sandals Grand'. '
Sharing this moment with
them will be their opposition
parliamentary colleagues with
the understanding that the
outcome of yesterday's unique
encounter would be formally
placed on the agenda for this
week's summit.
A press conference was
being scheduled for last evening
to be jointly shared by
representatives of the
Community Heads of
Government and the
parliamentary opposition
on their meeting, which was


chaired by Prime Minister
Patrick Manning of Trinidad
and Tobago since host Prime
Minister Kenny Anthony had
to attend the funeral of a former
cabinet minister.
With the exception of the
Prime Ministers of The
Bahamas and Belize, all Heads
of Government are expected to
be in attendance for today's
ceremonial start of the summit
which will be addressed by the
Prime Ministers of St Lucia (Dr.
Kenny Anthony)- incoming
CARICOM chairman -
Dominica (Mr. Roosevelt
Skerrit), Trinidad and Tobago

The koker under
repairs yesterday


RESIDENTS and farmers of
Friendship, East Bank
Demerara have been assured
that the drainage problems
affecting their village will be
addressed and four sluices
down for many years will
soon be put back in
operation.
The assurance came
yesterday from acting
Agriculture Minister,
Satyadeow Sawh who was
following up on President
Bharrat Jagdeo's visit to the
village last week when residents
raised the drainage and other
concerns.
The four sluices to be
reactivated at the request of
residents are Rahat, Liladrie,
Elsie and Gobin.
The cost of these works is
estimated at about $20 million-
$30 million and the project
should be completed within one
month of the contracts being
awarded, which means by the
end of August, Chief Executive
Officer of the National Drainage,
and Irrigation Board (NDIBi),
Ravi Narine told the Sunday


Chronicle.
The Kofi sluice which went
out of operation because the
doors slipped out of their
grooves will be fixed by
Tuesday as work is progressing
round the clock, he assured.
The malfunctioning of the
sluice caused concerns to the
residents after the village was
flooded last month.
Engineer attached to the
NDIB, Lionel Wordsworth
informed the meeting that by
Tuesday all the documents
related to putting the four
sluices back into operation, and
for drainage works requested
will be ready for the bidding
process.
He said he will be returning
to the community Tuesday to
finalise all arrangements:for the
works identified.
Mr Narine assured residents
that his department is working
speedil. to address the drainage
concerns and is implementing
measures to expedite the
process.
Acknowledging the
importance of farmers to the
development of the national
economy and prodding national
food security. Mr Sauh
declared. "We care That is why
%%e are here to help you help
yourselves."
He,said the government is
committed to supporting
farmers to ensure that Guy4na
conunues to be a net exporter
of agricultural products and put
"wholesome food on the table
of the nation."
And in this regard the
minister announced that farmers
who lost crops to floods will get
free inputs to restan their farms

Prime Minister calls f or greater




dynamism in private sector


By Clifford Stanley
PRIME Minister Sam Hinds
on Friday rejected the notion
that business concessions be-
ing granted by Government
were inadequate and called
for greater dynamism in the
private sector.
He was at the time declar-
ing open the Berbice Trade Fair
and Exposition and Trade Fair
at Albion, Corentyne.
"We want people to know
that we have one of the most
encouraging systems in place for
private investments. The list of
concessions available to busi-
nesses in Guyana (is) as good
as in many other countries. We
do not accept the view that busi-
ness concessions are a hold up,"
he said.
He added: "Our country
has unemployed people but
private sector people have
money sitting in Banks. What is
needed is for our business
people to become thoroughly
imbued with the entrepreneur-
ial spirit and imagination that
would see them investing in the
myriad investment opportuni-
ties available."
The Berbice Trade Expo
was a gala event with an open-
ing programme which featured
cultural performances, the re-
lease of colourful balloons by
two children, English and Indian
musical renditions by the
Guyana Police Foerce Band and
a ten-minute fireworks display,
compliments of Omai Gold
Mines.
There were numerous
booths on display with exhib-
its by big businesses and smaller
ones such as craft, pottery, gar-


ments, furniture, food process-
ing, and agriculture.
Among a large group of dig-
nitaries were Governrhent Min-
isters and members of the Cham-
bers of Commerce countrywide.
The Trade Fair and Expo,
which runs until July 4, was
organised by the Central
Corentyne Chamber of Com-
merce (CCCC) with assistance
from the Ministry of Tourism
Industry and Commerce under
the theme 'Pride in our indus-
try- The ancient county a new
frontier'.
In his address, Prime Min-
ister Hinds stressed: "The
Government's vision for a bet-
ter Guyana is one in which ev-
ery Guyanese is employed.
"We in Guyana have many
unmet.needs. We also have
many people not working. What
is needed to put together these
unmet needs and people who
are unemployed is initiation of
new businesses."
He urged business people to
use their eyes; to look around
to see where there are needs to
be met and "get out there and
meet those needs."
-"The private sector is the
engine of growth and I would
like for all of us to work to-
wards a situation in which the
needs of all Guyanese are being
met," he said.

programme.
Other speakers were Mr.
Kumkarran Ramdass, Regional
Chairman- of Region Six
(Corentyne/East Berbice); Mr.
Zulfikar Mustapha MP, Mr.
Joshua Safeek Chairman of the
Association of Regional Cham-
bers of Commerce (ARCC); Mr.


Adrian Anamayah President of
the Central Corentyne Chamber
of Commerce (CCCC); and Mr.
Manzoor Nadir. Minister of
Tourism Industry and Com-
merce.
Minister Nadir said that the
Berbice Trade Fair and Expo
was part of a countrywide cam-
paign by Government to pro-
mote Guyanese industry and in-
dustriousness.
He congratulated the
CCCC for doing a splendid
job in organising the Expo in
just a matter of eight weeks,
and expressed the view that
the Berbice Expo could be-
come a unique gateway to
Suriname and other
CARICOM countries.


Recounting the hectic eight
weeks of preparation for the
event, Mr. Anamayah was also
loud in praise for the high level
of commitment displayed by
members of the CCCC towards
ensuring that the event was a
success.
He. said that the theme
. 'Pride in our industry-The An-


cient County a new frontier' had
been crafted to encourage busi-
nessmen to invest in Berbice.
He gave the assurance
that the CCCC would work
along with the Ministry of
Tourism Industry and Com-
merce to ensure that there
are physical amenities avail-
able to facilitate such inves-
tors. It was also his hope that
the CCCC gets a permanent
exhibition site.
Mr. Anamayah also ac-
knowledged the assistance of
several agencies as well as in-
dividuals whose assistance
had been invaluable in the
successful staging of the
Trade Fair. These included

CARICOM'S


SUMMIT-


FOCUS ON


RESULTS
WHEN OUR Caribbean Community leaders settle down
tomorrow to the business of their work agenda for the
26th regular annual summit in St. Lucia, they should be
aware how much international developments -and time
are against us in our efforts to achieve major goals.
This demonstrated awareness should help to avoid
time-wasting in argumentative exercises on sensitive
issues, and instead influence positive attitudes to
advance shared objectives in the interest of the
Community and its peoples.
:In this context, we welcome the public statement, a
few days ago,by Prime Minister Owen Arthur of
Barbados, that he has no intention to provoke a
"showdown" with his Vincentian counterpart, Ralph
Gonsalves, on their known sharp disagreements on
issues like the flow of illegal drugs between their
countries and CARICOM's position on "engagement"


with the interim regime in Haiti.
Arthur said that "those who expect that the upcoming
Heads of Government meeting will develop into a fight
between Mr. Gonsalves and myself will be very quickly
disappointed. That.is not a matter which I will be carrying
to the Heads meeting..."
lIt is our understanding that this feeling is reciprocal
with Prime Minister Gonsalves, who had earlier followed
up his open differences with Prime Minister Arthur by
sending a lengthy and very detailed written response to
the Barbadian leader.
The Community's Secretary General, Edwin
Carrington, had earlier received an unusual letter of
complaints from Prime Minister Gonsalves on the, conduct
'of the business of Heads of Government meetings. Also,
as he sees it, on the need to restructure the format of
such meetings to prevent "bureaucratic interference"
and for more involvement in agenda-shaping and caucus
*sessions by the CARICOM leaders.
: Armed with a self-assurance based on his long years
of working experiences, first as Secretary General of the
African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Secretariat, and
now a third-term Secretary General of CARICOM,
Carrington has studiously avoided any public comment
on Gonsalves' letter, which was copied to Heads of
Government.
He too has, instead, expressed an anxiety for the St.
Lucia Summit to focus on resolving outstanding matters
that impede advancement on critical areas for the
inauguration of the Caribbean Single Market and
Economy (CSME).
Further, the importance of strengthening joint
approaches to achieve maximum unity in international
negotiations on trade and economic aid, especially with
the threatened loss of some US$1OOM annually as a
direct consequence of the betrayal of assurances by the
European Union for our sugar on the European market,
even as our sugar producers and exporters cooperate


on the EU's sugar reform policies.
We want unity on new initiatives for better trade and
aid agreements and expansion of debt forgiveness to
CARICOM states; more practical approaches in fostering
improved cooperation between the Organisation of
Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and the wider
Community; progress on free movement of labour and
an end to the hassle that nationals of the Community,
including Guyanese, continue to-experience at some
airports in CARICOM.
Certainly, there remains the need .for the. Utmost
enlightened forms of cooperation in combating the
criminal networks across the region that pose serious
,threats to national security with narco-trafficking and gun-
running.
As it is, the leaders have a rather packed work
agenda. They must, therefore, deal With that agenda with
maturity and in a climate of camaraderie and shared
commitment conducive to maximum gains for the peoples
of the Community. We wish.them well in their
deliberations and decisions.

SHOCK BEHAVIOUR BY RODNEY'S 'COMRADES'


What rice 'unanimity' with a oartv linked to his assassination?


THE late Forbes Burnham
once described politics as
"the.science of deals". Others
have come to accept that in
politics "all things are
possible".
Whatever the truth, I never
expected in my journalism
career to find out that the
Working People's Alliance
(WPA) the once promising
party the murdered Walter
Rodney had helped to establish
in Guyana would have teamed
up with the People's National
Congress Reform to
significantly emasculate a
motion in parliament that
included substituting the crucial


outstanding historian,
philosopher and political
activist was deeply admired.
But greater would be their
agony when they learn of
manoeuvrings by the
parliamentary opposition in
Guyana on Wednesday, June
29, to secure amendments for
approval of an original
government motion for that
Commission of Inquiry into the
circumstance of Rodney's death
on June 13, 1980.
Irony of ironies, it was not
the PNC that took the initiative,
publicly anyway, to amend the
government's motion to remove
the words "assassinated" and


The initiative to emasculate
the original motion, that placed
the government in a dilemma to
either go along with it, or
abstain, came from the small
hybrid party formed after the
2001 elections, known as WPA/
GAP (Guyana Action Party)
through one of its two MPs in
the 65-member parliament, the
WPA's Sheila Holder.
A very restricted inquiry,
held under the presidency of the
late Desmond Hoyte, and
denounced as lacking
"credibility", had determined
that Rodney died by
"misadventure".
But last month marked the
first time that the
Guyana Parliament, highest
forum of the land, was in
session to address that most
historic tragic case of political
assassination within our
Caribbean Community.

WIDOW'S LETTER
Let me pause here to share
with readers the exact texts of
the original and amended
motions for the inquiry so that
they could come to their
own independent judgements.
First, however, readers need
to know that the initiative for
the motion resulted from a letter
to President Bharrat Jagdeo
on June 13, 2005, by Walter's
widow, Patricia Rodney, while
she was in Guyana last month
for the 25th commemoration
anniversary of the historian's
assassination in Georgetown.
In her letter, Patricia
Rodney said her family "has
always insisted on an inquiry
into Dr Walter Rodney's death
since he was 'assassinated' on
June 13, 1980..."
Now, she said she was
writing, at President Jagdeo's
request, "to express our family's
unwavering belief that a
Commission of Inquiry can
bring closure, not only for our
family, but for the Guyanese
people.


"The Inquiry", she said, "is
essential for the truth to emerge,
is consistent with democratic
principles, and will be an
instrument of reconciliation. It
is vital that the appointment
and cooperation of the
Commission be underpinned by
an Act of Parliament supported
unanimously across the House".

It is quite a quantum
leap, therefore, from Rodney's
letter, which made clear that her
husband was "assassinated on
June 13, 1980", and
her suggestion for "unanimous"
parliamentary support for an
Act of Parliament for a
Commission of Inquiry", to the
now insulting and shocking
amendments from the WPA/
GAP to the government's
motion in order to win
support from the PNC, the
party that has always been
linked with Rodney's death.
The original motion for the
Commission of Inquiry, as
moved by Minister of Home
Affairs, Culture, Youth and
Sports, Gail Teixeira, reads as
follows:

MOTION AND
AMENDMENTS
"Whereas on June 13, 1980,
Dr Walter Rodney, a
distinguished Guyanese scholar,
was 'assassinated' by an
explosion which occurred in his
car at John'and Hadfield Streets,
Georgetown;
And whereas Dr Rodney
was at the time of his death an
eminent political leader engaged
in a struggle against
'authoritarian rule for


tragic death, support an inquiry
being conducted into the
circumstance surrounding the
death of Dr Rodney".
In contrast, the amended
motion, truncated of key words
and a whole clause, as passed
with the government benches
abstaining, requested:
"Whereas on June 13, 1980,
Dr Walter Rodney, a
distinguished scholar and
champion of the multi-racial
working people, was 'killed' by
an explosion which occurred in
his car at John and Hadfield,
Streets, Georgetown;
And whereas .there have
been calls for a full and impartial
investigation into the 'death' of
Dr Walter Rodney, which have
received local, regional and
international support;
"Be it resolved: That this
National Assembly in paying
tribute to the memory of this
illustrious son of Guyana and
on the occasion of the 25th
Anniversary of his untimely and
tragic death, support an
international inquiry being
conducted without delay into
the circumstance surrounding
the death of Dr Walter
Rodney".
The day after the amended
motion passed with the


government MPs abstaining,
President Jagdeo announced
that he would go ahead with the
establishment in two months
time of a Commission of
Inquiry into the death of Walter
Rodney.

GONSALVES ON "TRUTH"

One CARICOM Prime
Minister, who would most
certainly be shocked and
outraged by the significant
changes to the government's
motion for the Commission of
Inquiry, is Ralph Gonsalves of
St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
He was the featured guest
speaker at the ceremonial launch
in Georgetown of the 25th
Anniversary of Rodney's death
when, to the applause from the
audience, that included those
involved in last week's tricks in
parliament, he said:
"We must not forget that
Walter Rodney was not killed.
He did not merely die. He was
assassinated.... He did not die
of old age in his bed. He was cut
down in the prime of his life by
assassins. And you know that
while the alleged assassin may
be dead, those who set the
context for the assassination are
still around in the region. It
doesn't make sense that we
speak, unless we have a
commitment to truth"?
Well, it is something for
those who chose to play games
with words, at the expense of
"truth", should reflect on what
Gonsalves had to say.
Especially, if they wish to
continue speaking about or in
Rodney's name.
No point attacking the
'Guyana Chronicle' for its
reporting on the outcome of the
parliament's debate and
approval of the amended
motion.
Neither the political
interest nor political activity
of Sheila Holder, who
formally proposed the
amendments was known

THE FOURTH FORCE


I AM all ready to lead the
fourth force.
Okay, okay -- thank'you
very much. Thank you! Thank
you!
You can stop the deafening
applause and shattering
screaming now. Calm down,
please; please calm down. Yeah,
yeah I hear you!
Hello -- this is me, not Shah
Rukh Khan touching down in
Guyana.
Thank you. Thank you.
Please -- no bowing at my feet.
This is simply something I have
got to do.
What's that you say? You
glad I leading the fourth force
and running for President?
Who? Me?
Look sweetheart. Stop
smiling so satisfyingly as if
you've seen Shah Rukh Khan
or your deliverer. I am not
either.
Me run for President? Me
enter politics?
.My dear -- I like writing
about goats; their antics are an
eternal delight to me, but I am
not a goat. Please understand
that.
I know my limitations (I
hope to God some other people
can realise theirs this country
would be so much better off)
and politics is not my calling.
Okay, okay -- stop the


crying and bawling now, please.
Stop the ranting and raving! No
matter how much you all carry
on, I am not running for
President and I am not getting
into politics. That's final.
Here are some tissues -
dry your eyes and weep no
more.
All right now that I have
got your attention once again,
let's get back to this fourth
force thing.
This country has a first
force and a second force (well,
sort of) and there's talk about a
third force. (A reader, William
Rambaghan, called the last
named a turd force but I am not
getting into that. I stress I am
not a goat).
Guyana also has The
United Force you don't know
what that is? I don't blame you.
Neither do I, but I've heard
some people say there's such a
farce oopss!) force.
And there are the Police
Force and the Guyana Defence
Force.
(You don't know what those
are too and what they do?)
Lord, have mercy.
And there have been so
many other forces before -
plenty pooh pooh forces that
have surfaced in Guyana's dog
season oopss!) elections time.
In previous elections we
have had POODOOM,
BOODOOM, PADOOM,


(From page six)
when Rodney was leading the WPA in the fight against
authoritarian rule and working for unity of the Guyanese
masses.
But it must be evident to all who are familiar with the social
and political realities of Guyana that for all practical purposes, the
WPA, of which the slain historian was its most outstanding co-
founder and co-leader, is no longer what parades as the party of
Rodney.
Rodney, whose body was severed in two by that assassin's
bomb, concealed in a walkie talkie, on the night in June, 25 years
ago, must now be turning in his grave over what could correctly be
viewed as a most sickening act of political collaboration and
opportunism by what remains of a once bright spot on the Guyanese
political landscape in the form of the original WPA when he so
courageously led from the frontline against "Burnham's dictatorship"
under the heinous doctrine of "party paramountcy".

TODAY'S WPA
The WPA launched an attack on the 'Guyana Chronicle' last
Thursday for its reporting on the outcome of the debate on the
motion fdr the inquiry into Rodney's death.
In my view, the core of the report carried the central message
of a perceived collaboration by the WPA to significantly dilute the
original motion submitted by the Minister of Home Affairs with
the intention to appease the PNC sufficiently to gain "unanimous"
endorsement of an amended version for the inquiry.
That may have hurt, the truth always does. But no point in shooting
the messenger for simply bringing the message. The 'Chronicle', however,
did right in also publishing the following day the criticism levelled against
it by the WPAin this ongoing "words" game.
No one familiar with some leading figures and well
meaning activists of what is left of the WPA would wish to question
their honest claims that Rodney was a victim of assassination under
what he had struggled against as "the Burnham dictatorship".
There is, however, this crucial question: Why, then, in the name of a
highly dubious "unanimous" vote to secure support from the PNC, the
very party that had openly threatened the likes of Rodney that "our steel is
sharper", should today's remnant of the WPA seek to accommodate the
inheritors of Bumrnham's party over an-inquiry into Rodney's death?
I do not accept that some of these elements are preparing the
groundwork for future political alignments with the PNC, ahead of
general elections in.2006.
But while sleeping in the same bed with an arch political foe may
be acceptable within the context of "all things are possible in
politics", it is disturbing to know that to this day, the accommodated
PNC is yet to offer even a muted apology, or show some remorse
for its many misdeeds, including political murders, institutionalized
electoral fraud and for reducing Guyana to an economic basket case

Political parties and their

have them) almost always have
ulterior motives (mostly vote-

stand on issues.
Opposition parties and
their cohorts have perfected
the art of coming up with
issues to try to make the
governing party look bad --
that's the nature of the
opposition in this country.
And the governing party, in
a kind of regrettable reflex
action, seems to spend most
of its time and effort in
trying to deflect tirades and
attacks from its political
opponents when most of


these do not even deserve the
dignity of a response.
And in the dust and heat
churned up in these
cockfights, the issues that
really matter to most people
are clouded.

blinded by.the monkeys on

election could help to keep

lobby for sustained and
dedicated action on these.

elections have a legitimate right
to woo voters and those who
want action on issues that are
of primary concern to them,
have an equally legitimate right
to lobby for that.
The fourth force, free of the
vote-catching bogeyman, could


be the force that could make a
difference amid the dizzying
array of other forces that
sometimes threaten to drown
others in their mad scramble for

that I have led the discussion on

that I have done so, I gone.

AFRICA, CARICOM SILENCE



ON HORRORS IN ZIMBABWE


"Case of corruption of absolute oower"


author of 'How Europe
Underdeveloped Africa', would
certainly have condemned the
Mugabe regime for its brutal,
inhumane forced evictions of the
thousands of urban
Zimbabwean slum dwellers and
street vendors without any
alternative accommodation.
Mugabe has said that
destruction of the illegal homes
and market stalls was in keeping
with his government's fight
against crime and cleaning up
unsanitary conditions in the
cities. But as United Nations
human rights advocates have
observed, the victims were
given no prior notice, had no
opportunity to appeal and for
most no chance to retrieve their
property before destruction and
brute force.
It just so happens that the
thousands of evicted victims of
an expanding community of
urban squatters in shacks called
"homes", and the
wayside market vendors,
existing in a collapsed economy,
are reputed to be among voting

Analysis by Rickey Singh

THE latest demonstration of
the corruption of absolute
power in Zimbabwe has
forced United Nations
Secretary General Kofi
Annan to dispatch, last
weekend, his Human
Settlement Programme
Director, Anna Tibaijuka, to
assess the plight of thousands
of urban squatters and
vendors who have fallen
victims to a demolition and
evacuation blitzkreig by the
government of former
'revolutionary hero',
President Robert Mugabe.
In contrast, the silence of
officialdom across Africa is
deafening. Indeed, the African
Union (AU) currently planning
for its summit in Libya and to
be attended by Annan has
refused to make a statement on
the matter.
And this could well provide
a convenient political shelter for
our own Caribbean CoUmnunity
governments to keep their own
silence on what is a human

NAT URlBE HAmS NO HISTORY


Rub6n Sili6

DURING the 'Inter
national Seminar
on Climatic
Change, Natural Disasters,
Early Warning Systems and
Civil Protection'1[1], which
examined the primary
causes of these phenomena
and the resulting problems
for the population, I heard
reports presented by the aca-
demics and experts in atten-
dance and was inspired to
write these notes.
Among the lessons learnt,
we could underscore the need to
increase our awareness of the


severity of natural disasters,
with one of the main elements
being to recognize the role of hu-
man beings and that of nature.
During the Seminar we saw ex-
perts refer to landslides and
hurricanes, explaining that the
greatest tragedies occurred in
those areas where human beings
had displaced nature in order to
construct their homes.
What is worse is that in
many cases, stories were told of
people who had been battered
by such events several decades
ago and having forgotten the
past. people returned to the
same locations to live. This has
taken place on the banks of riv-
ers or on mountainsides. In


other words, the responsibility
rests on the shoulders of human
beings who have tried to contend
with nature for space.
Nature has no history,
since it does not change in
order to adapt to life in spe-
cific environments as hu-
mans do. Humans are respon-
sible for their own existence,
while nature is constant.
That is what allows us to be-
come more and more knowl-
edgeable where nature is con-
cerned. With power and by
understanding its laws, we
can defy space and time, be-
cause if this were not the case
and, for example, the law of
gravity were not absolute,


what would guarantee us
safety in spatial movements
as is the case today? The
same occurs with properties
of different elements, animal
behaviour or the course of
meteorology.
Therefore, when we speak
about the history of flooded riv-
ers or land shifts or hurricanes,
what we are referring to is the
action of human beings with re-
spect to those uncontrollable
processes that stem from spe-
cific causes. So we human be-
ings create our culture based on
the environment in which we
live.
It is therefore urgent to
review our culture in light of

nature, since it has its own
elements before which we
present ourselves or in which
we intervene, so we must bear
in mind that the earth is also our
home.
Year after year, once the
hurricane season begins, panic
spreads throughout our coun-
tries: statistics of damages pre-
viously suffered are reviewed;
deaths are recalled with horror
and pain, while the drama expe-
rienced by victims is relived.
This leads us to think about
those people still living with the
threat of danger, by occupying
those areas that are recognized
as being high risk.
However, of all of this,
what should matter most to us
is recognizing that although na-
ture does not control the cul-
tural environment, we are obli-
gated to develop behaviour that


takes that environment into ac-
count. The historical responsi-
bility of human beings is to en-
sure proper balance between
ecology and culture. Further-
more, we must recognize that it
is our duty to disseminate and
explain that destructive part of
our history, so that future gen-
erations would have an adequate
vision of that erratic behaviour
and the magnitude of the prob-
lems it brings. This is essential
in order to incorporate into our
daily lives a culture of preven-
tion that is consistent with the
increase in natural events.

Investment critical to growth of



agro-processin g industry- NARI Director
<&sv i msin indu


By Chamanlall Naipaul

DIRECTOR of the
National Agricultural
Research Institute
(NARI), Dr. Oudho
Homenauth feels that
the agro-processing
industry in Guyana has
the potential to grow
and develop into a
major industry, but
investment by the
private sector is vital.
He told the Chronicle, NARI
can only help, to transfer the
agro-processing technology to
the farmers and entrepreneurs,
but for the industry to develop,
.investments in machinery and
equipment would have to come
from the private sector.
One of the problems facing
the local agriculture sector is that
when there is a glut of fruits and
vegetables, there is no avenue for


them to be absorbed as the agro-
processing sector is still in its
infancy here. Consequently,
most of the agricultural produce
is exported in its fresh form, Dr.
Homenauth said.
He noted too that locating
adequate markets for processed
fruits and vegetables is essential
for stimulating entrepreneurs to
invest in agro-processing.,
In this regard, some effort
has been made to promote what
Guyana has to offer at various
trade shows in the Caribbean and
North America.
Two products that have the
potential to penetrate the North
American market are powdered
thyme, and celery which do not
need large-scale investments.
He added that samples of
these products were on display
at the recent Toronto Trade Fair
which formed part of the
celebrations of Guyana's 39th
independence anniversary
organised by the Guyanese
diaspora in Canada.
Dr. Homenauth also said the


(From page seven)
now expediently seek coyer behind this blunt refusal by the
African Union to speak out against the campaign of
demolitions and evictions, as earlier called for by the British
and American governments.

SOUTH AFRICA
True, both Prime Minister Tony Blair and President George
Bush, the twins of the pre-emptive war on Iraq, may have their
own self-serving agendas in seeking to internationalise the atrocities
in Zimbabwe.
But with the internationally respected government in South
Africa conveniently remaining silent on continuing violations of
human rights in Zimbabwe, having earlier refused to pass judgement
on claimed widespread malpractices at the last parliamentary
elections, the AU's refusal to condemn the mass demolitions and
evictions should come as no real surprise.
Especially, as noted by the BBC's Elizabeth Blunt this past
weekend: "The sad truth is that what is going on in Zimbabwe at
the moment is not at all unusual...
"From one end of Africa to the other, governments have set
about slum clearance schemes without any consideration for the
people who live there, or any sense of responsibility for what
happens to them afterwards".
She offered some examples in Nigeria whose government
currently holds the chair of the African Union Ivory Coast. and
the Cameroon, where demolition and eviction politics ruined the
lives of thousands of squatters.
Question for us in CARICOM, is whether our
own governments, that like to recite their commitment
to human rights observance and democratic governance, can
bring themselves to speak out, collectively or separately,
against the gross abuse of power, the horrors of thousands of
squatters homes and market stalls being set ablaze or
bulldozed with no immediate alternative?

fruit. rambutan. which originated
from South-East Asia. is being
grown by local farmers and the
focus is now on expanding
cultivation as it is a high-priced
fruit on the international market.
The rambutan is versatile as well
because it is edible and can be
processed into juices or other
value-added products such as
jams and jellies.
However, he pointed out
that it takes about three to four
years for one 'bearing', but with
the use of grafting techniques.
this could be reduced to about a
year.


Malaysian expert on
rambutan cultivation, Dr. Hoe
Hing, who was here in 2003, said
local farmers should be
encouraged to increase
cultivation of the fruit.
He also stressed that
Guyana's agricultural drive
should encompass a good
variety of crops.
In Guyana, the earliest
cultivation of rambutan dates
back to 1966, with the first batch
of seedlings being imported from
Thailand by the famous
mountaineer Adrian Thompson.
After his death, Guyanese Boyo


Ramsaroop continued
cultivating the fruit.
In the meantime, Dr.
Homnenauth said the mobile
demonstration fruit processing
.equipment, acquired as a gift
from the Indian governmentl,is
being Ised to acquaint farmers
in various agricultural
communities with fruit-
processing methods and

have been conducted on the
Essequibo Coast, East Bank

and West Berbice, Dr.


Homenauth said. adding thatthe
response from farmers has been
encouraging.
"There is a need to
inculcate a culture of fruit
processing among our farmers
as they are accustomed to the
practice of only marketing
fresh fruits," Dr. Homenauth
said.
The demonstrations are
to be continued in other
farming communities as
the mango season develops.
Experts use mangoes, in the

region of the heart on the Ann's
Grove Public Road! while she
was on her way home from
work. She died at the
Georgetown Public Hospital
Corporation (GPHC).
Her parents said yesterday
that she was often trailed
and tormented by the
spumed 45-year-old man
who eventually ended her
life.
The obsessed killer
would usually pass in
front of their home at
nights and issue death
threats to the teen and her
family, her parents
recalled. ,
He had openly -
threatened to murder her /
on numerous occasions -
because she refused to
condone an illicit -J
relationship with him.
The dead teen's
mother, Beverly Peters,
42, fold the Chronicle that
the man, who reportedly hails.
from Belfield Village, also on the
East Coast, had Ivisited the
home and admitted that he liked
her daughter. But he said she
warned him to stay away from
the teen because he was too old
for her.
"I told him that you can't
just see somebody and like
them," Mrs. !Peters said.
She said despite the
warning, the man' continued to
stalk her daughter.'
Omadella's father, Evan
Peters, 43, said they had made
several reports 'f the man's
threats to the Clo brook Police
Station, but to date, no one has
responded to their complaints.
The distraught man related


that Omadella, the second of
five children, had minutes before
been dropped off at the Anns
Grove Public Road by a
Denmor Garment Factory bus.
He related that she had asked a
villager to drop her home on his


bicycle.
He said this move
apparently aggravated the killer
who had followed the teen in a
taxi. The man exited, the taxi and
reportedly ordered the girl off
the bicycle. After a brief scuffle,
he stabbed her.
Mr. Peters said his daughter
never had a relationship with
the man and she was very afraid
of him because of the way he
often threatened to end her life.
About 15 minutes after
stabbing the teen, the man was
apprehended by residents and
after a severe beating he was
taken into police custody.
Omadella was described
as a very kind and friendly
teen.

should receive the report on
the death of Guyana Defence
Force (GDF) Private Gilford
Henry by Tuesday. So said
Chief Executive Officer
(CEO) of the Georgetown
Public Hospital Corporation
(GPHC) Mr. Michael Khan
The report was compiled
by Khan and handed over to
Director of Medical and
Professional Services Dr.
Madan Rambarran on Friday
last for review.
The investigation was '
launched on June 27, following
reports that Henry did not
receive prompt medical
attention at the hospital when
he was taken there with a
gunshot wound.
Henry was shot in the left
cheek in a botched robbery at
Agricola, East Bank Demerara
on June 26. He was on his way
to work when the incident
occurred. Henry was rushed to
the GPHC but relatives
subsequently removed him
because they said he was not
being treated.
The hospital
administration said it was
greatly concerned about
the allegations made by
the slain soldier's family


(From page two)
Institute (NARI) will
provide the support, he said.
The losses will be
assessed at a meeting on
Tuesday at the Friendship
Community High School, he
said.
Narine also briefed residents
and farmers on plans to reduce
the drainage problems affecting
the community.
General Manager of the
New Guyana Marketing
Corporation (NGMC), Nizam
Hassan and Director of NARI,
Dr Oudho Homenauth advised
farmers on the opportunities to
export agricultural products to
the Caribbean and North
America.
The agencies are ready to
help them move into export-
oriented farming, the two
pledged.


and the investigation was
launched.
Statements were taken from
the nurse and others on duty at


GILFORD HENRY
the GPHC at the time Henry
was taken there. The young
man's family members were also
called in to give their version of
events.
Should the allegations be
true, Khan said that the
persons involved could be
taken to the respective
licensed bodies for sanction.
He said that the doctor, who
treated Henry, works part -
time and is called into the
hospital in case of
emergencies. (Shawnel

. During the meeting
yesterday residents also raised
poor living conditions in the
Friendship squatting area which
has been identified for
regularisation by the Ministry of
Housing and Water.
In the interim some help
would be provided to ease their
plight, Sawh assured and said he
would be relaying their concerns
to Minister of Housing and
Water, Shaik Baksh.
He also appealed to
residents to work in unison to
put the playground of the
Friendship School, which is in
a horrible condition, in a decent
state so that the children could
have somewhere for recreational
activities.
However, he said he will
report the matter to Education
Minister, Dr Henry Jeffrey.

INTRODUCTION: THE
STUDY
RACIAL conflicts
have become a very
prominent feature
in our world today. Both the
developed and underdevel-
oped societies seem to suffer
from this malady and
Guyana is not immune to its
influence. Racial violence
followed 2001, 1997 and
1992 general elections
which were all won by the
Peoples Progressive Party/
Civic [PPP/C] whose sup-
port comes predominantly
from Guyanese of Indian an-
cestry. These elections were
declared free and fair by in-
ternational observers and by
the local civic community.
Yet the leadership of the ma-
jor opposition political party,
the Peoples National Con-
gress/Reform [PNC/R]
which represents a constitu-
ency of at least 40 per cent
of the electorate which is
made up of predominantly


Guyanese of African ances-
try, refused to acknowledge
the legitimacy of the 1997
and 2001 elections.
After the 1997 elections,
Mr. Desmond Hoyte, leader of
the opposition, vowed to make
the "country ungovernable and
the slogan of a metaphorical
slow fire chant became one of
the post 2001 elections rallying
opposition calls. Such incite-
ments, it is argued in some quar-
ters, have contributed to the
post-elections violence which
was racial in character. The vic-
tims were mainly Indians and
the perpetrators were mainly
Africans [see GIFT 1998, the
GIHA Crime Report 2003 & re-
ports of. the period from the
Stabroek News anT. the
Chronicle, the two main news-
papers]. The violence that fol-
lowed each general elections has
become progressively more in-
tense and prolonged. Conse-
quently, more property was
damaged and more people were
hurt. It is hoped that this trend
would not be allowed to con-
tinue and that the disaster of
civil war and ethnic cleansing
would avoided.
There is a body of .opinion
which feels that African youths
are targeted by sections of the


military. This is obviously a
cause for concern and should
therefore be investigated and ur-
gent remedial actions taken. In
keeping with this view, the trade
unionist, Lincoln Lewis, used
the term 'economic genocide' to
convey the message of the need
for more investments and em-
ployment opportunities in the
communities inhabited mainly
by Guyanese of African ances-
try.
Large sections of the
Amerindian community con-
stantly draw attention to the ex-
ploitation experienced by
Amerindian workers when they
labour for foreign companies or
Guyanese business people.
They are poorly and irregularly
paid. Further, Amerindian
women are known to be badly
treated by men from the
coastland. The trafficking in.
persons affects mainly
Amerindian women.
The rise of racial con-
flicts and the many initiatives
to resolve them [both in
Guyana and around the
world] have influenced the
undertaking of the present
project. The purpose of my

RACE RELATIONS IN PLANTATION ...
pepean hi decndns "mixed


From page 14

larger study is to explore the
theory-and practice of resolv-
ing protracted racial conflicts
in post-colonial Guyana.
However, any attempt to
realise this objective must
endeavour to locate the gen-
esis of this phenomenon. To'
facilitate understanding of
the contemporary situation
the exploration of history is
necessary. This initial sub-
nrission.would concentrate on
the. historical sequence 1831
to .-905. fIt begins before tlie -
abolition of slavery and it in-
cludes seventy [70] years of
indentured immigration.
Thus. it goes to the very ori-
gin of some of the racial en-
counters. The intention here
is to begin the construction of
the historical foundation
upon which the larger project
would be built.
But has not this been done
.this before? To the best of my
knowledge previous writers did
not treat 19th century racial
conflicts among all the races as
their major concern. They either -
treated racial conflicts as a
marginal issue [see B. Moore:
1987] or they focused on the
conflict between the Indians and
the Africans a.s did Robert
Moore. [1970] in his PhD
thesis. His work is very useful
but it is not readily available. It
is at the University of Sussex
Library in the United Kingdom.
Looking at what he called "racial
contradictions" Rodney
concluded that the conflicts
between the Africans and the
Indians were "piddling" i.e.
petty, unimportant or trifling.
Jagan was even more
dismissive. He noted that "In
the earlier period there was no
real conflict between the Indians
and the Africans ... Up to the
mid 1920s they had a common
enemy, the white planters"
[1997:292].
The present study, while it
is. concerned with conflicts
among all the races, would also


test the validity of Jagan's and
Rodney's conclusions. Other
scholars adopted an ethnocen-
tric view when they looked at
racial conflicts. The cases they
presented reflected the interest
of the racial group whose cause
they championed. This presen-
tation is significant .therefore
not .only because it foctises on
racial conflicts, thus making a
modest contribution to-the lit-
erature, but also because it seeks
to congregate in one place, and
thus correcting the pioblem.of
Saccessibility, all thie .mitPacial
conflicts in 19th".,ce-I.tury
- Guiana. Further. it 'eel to o'f-
fer and analyse the factors re-
sponsible for these'conflivs. *"


METHOD
The purpose of this study
is to seek to produce knowledge
that would aid our understand-
ing of racial conflicts in 19th
century British Guiana. Firstly,
it would be observed that the
study is engaging a universal
phenomenon, racial conflict, and
- is seeking to understand it in the
context of one country, British
Guiana, during a given histori-
cal sequence, 1831-1905. This
gives the present work the aura
of a case study.
Secondly, it would be
observed that the period under
study begins 169 years ago and
ends 95 years ago. The time
span that separates the
researcher from the researched
period renders the methods of
. participant observation,
questionnaire design and the
interviewing of people who
participated in the racial
conflicts under examination
inappropriate.
To satisfy the purpose of
this study no fieldwork was
undertaken, rather intensive
library research was done. The
main method used to collect
information was the survey and
appraisal of secondary source
materials from various libraries
which included the university
libraries of Warwick,
Birmingham, London, Sussex


and Guyana. Data collection
and analysis were informed by
the view that meaning and truth
are socially constructed [see
Berger and Luckmann 1967] and
also, that reality could be
subjected to interpretation [see
Crotty 1998: 66-86]. This
study could also be seen as
embracing some, of the tenets of. '
constructionism and
interpretivism. These
epistemological pei peciieds
were chosen because they. :re at
once realist; relativist and riot .
dogmtauic and the\ do not in .ian
waN compromise the. initer,,N
ofthe.rese'aiuh p,'liL

DEFINITION OFiKEY
.CONCEPTS :. .
Race, race relations and::'
racial conflicts are key con- -."
cepts the reader would en- .
counter herein. These con- ..
cepts mean different things to
different people. In'is Lthere- .
fore important for me to ex-
plain .the meanings they "
bring to the present study. It
should be borne in mind that
in the 19th Century ethnicity,.
ethnic conflicts, ethnic rela- .
tions and ethnic groups were.'.
yet to be part of the vocabu-
lary and of public discourse.
Race ideas were and hence'
their utilisation here. .

RACE
In 1850 Knox proclaimed,
"... in human history race is ev-
erything..." [see Mitter 1983:
27] and in the unravelling of his-
tory Gobineau posited "...the
great human civilisations ...
have been produced upon the
initiative of the white race" [see
Banton 1996: 151]. The ruling .
ideas of the 19th century sup-
ported the view that human be-
ings could be divided into per-
manent and discrete races. Fur-
ther, the findings of science
were manipulated to show that
there was a. convergence be-
tween biology and development.
Darwin's law of natural selec-
tion was combined with
Spencer's theory that the ge-
netic constitution of an indi-


vidual or a racial group deter-
mined the social behaviour of
that individual or racial group.
This pseudo-scientific approach
gave credibility, to the British
Empire, it justified colonialism
and slavery and it saddled the
'white race' with the mission of
ci I in the rest of-humanity.
Inr 19th :entury Guiana, the
,a ni :ajoirit) of people

belief that the population could

by :the findings :of modern
science. Yet, one cannot dismiss
W. I. Thomas' famous
sociological dictum "if people
define a situation as real, it is
real in-its' consequences." Thus,
subjective understandings of
race translate themselves into
objective repercussions.
Race was moulded by
political, social, economic and
cultural considerations in
British Guiana. No doubt the
everyday observation that
parents of the same racial group
reproduce children who
resemble them lent some .
credibility, at least at the prima
facie level, that race appears to
exist as a fairly stable biological
category. The racial categories
with which the present study is
concerned are:
Amerindians indigenous

Churches to'

programme -
.. ." . .I .. .....


A GROUP of local
Churches, mobilised
by the Roman Catho-
lic Diocese of Georgetown,
and backed by the Louisiana
Governor's Programme on Ab-
stinence (GPA), is moving to
introduce a strong Abstinence
Programme aimed at foster-
ing healthy lifestyles and
self-worth among young
people in Guyana.
The model being used is
based on the Abstinence Authen-
tic Curriculum, crafted by
Louisiana's GPA, and reported
to have achieved a high degree of
success. It urges young people
to refrain from sexuality outside
of marriage, and sets out clearly
defined guidelines for making'
this possible. However, it is
non-denominational.
The initiative got underway
in Guvana with a with a three-
day 'Training-of-trainers' Work-
shop on 'Abstinence', conducted
over last weekend, at St. Paul's
Roman Catholic Pastoral Centre,
Vryheid's Lust, East Coast
Demerara.
The Workshop was
organised by the Family and


Life Commission of the Roman
Catholic Diocese of
Georgetown, and funded by the
Georgetown-based United
States Ambassador's Fund.
At that forum, some 50 per-
sons from several local parishes
and youth organizations were
coached and certified as Trainers,
by a team of officials from the
GPA.
The four-member team was
headed by GPA's Director/Coor-


played a lead role in organising
the activity, participated in all
the sessions-
The comprehensive Trainers
model covers a wide range of les-
sons including: ~' 'th' and In-
fatuation versus Love; Parental

"Our job is to get the word

communities and country. ... We
want people to understand why
abstinence is so important. If
this generation does not partici-
pate. then we will have more

said.
Meanwhile. Bishop Alleyne.
assuring the participants that the
initiative started can be "a very
powerful witness for God." has
urged them not to let it "'fade
away and die".
He reminded those present
that when people hear the absti-
nence message being preached by


young people, they will take n(
tice.
Expressing optimism thi
the programme can work here, I
concluded: "Together, let's se
how we can take this to our pa
ishes and the nation."
Organisers said that th
Catholic Church is ver
concerned about the crisis <

strongly that programme
aimed at fostering health
lifestyles and self-worth ar
the ones which, not only ha-
proven to be the mos
effective in reducing th
incidence of HIV/AIDS, bu
offer young people positive

conviction that they moved t

GO


Guyana's incredible landscape and teeming
rainforests have lured explorers for centuries.

Anita Sethi goes in search of El Dorado


. saiETEUP, one ci ."t tallest waterfalls in the world, is
hidden in Guyana's tropical heartland.


A s we walk through
the dense Guyanese
rainforest, a sign
si.,ps5 us in our tracks:
"This area is an overhang.
Proceed at your own risk.
741 feet drop below. Keep
away from the edge."
Having travelled thousands
of miles to get here, though. I'm
determined to go the final inch.
I tiptoe to the edge and, lying
down flat, my hands clutching
the ciuff's rough stone, I peer
over the precipice to see some-
Lting that would steal the sleep
.rom the most heat-tired of eyes.
A rainbow arches. below in an
explosion of colour, creating the
sudden feeling that the world
has swung upside down. The
rainbow seems close enough to
touch, but I'm not brave enough
to try. Instead. I snap it with
my camera and scramble back.
Behind me*one of the high-
est single-drop waterfalls in the
world crashes down in a frenzy


of white mist. We are at the
Kaieteur Falls, hidden in the sa-
vannah-filled heart of Guyana,
where the Potaro river plunges
over the Pakaraima plateau. The
tour guide tells us that the rain-
bow appears every day; that the
Falls were discovered in the nine-
teenth-century by a British ex-
plorer; and that according to
Amerindian legend, they were
named after a tribal chief who
canoed over them in an act of
self-sacrifice. In the distance we
can see Mount Roraima. which

We are eight amongst just 16
tourists that will land here today


and the only Brits in our group:
the rest are Americans. Like all
of Guyana, this area is un-
touched by large-scale tourism.
and so there are no stalls selling
postcards, no internet cafes. no
protective fences against the
cliff's edge. Situated on the
northern tip of South America,
Guyana sometimes seems like
the underbelly of the Caribbean,
the muddy cousin of Latin
America, known better for the
Jim Jones massacre than for its
hidden rainbows. When I told
people where I was going on
holiday, the usual response was.
"Where. Ghana?" Not one per-
son had heard of it. But stand-
ing here, surrounded by this
vast, incredible landscape, the
sheer force of its existence slaps
you in the face.
Guyana is developing a
market in eco-tourism and the
Kaieteur Falls are one of its
greatest attractions. As the guide
leads us through the surrounding


Kaieteur National Park, the sun
light slanting through tiny gap
in the trees casts huge shadow
of our bodies on the forest flooi
But we are the last thing on ou
minds. We search for a sight o
the tiny Golden frogs, the "jew
els of the rainforest", but are re
warded instead by a flurry o
wings as one of the largest spe
cies of butterflies in Souti
America shoots past in a blur o
brilliant blue, too fast to capture
on camera. Then the trees stai
dripping red flowers. The wild
life here is so intense and unpre
dictable that it constantly jolt
me awake, distracting attention
from my aching muscles, dr
mouth and sluggish shadow.

when the 166th anniversary
celebrations of the Guyana Po-

Assistant Commissioner of
Police, Paulette Morrison led the
crisp parade comprising members of
all divisions of the Force.
It moved off from The Tac-
tical Service Unit (TSU) Square,
Eve Leary, and wended its way
east into Young Street, north
into Parade Street, east into
Lamaha Street, south into Water-
loo Street, into Wellington

south into Camp Street and then
west into Brickdam.
Newly appointed Minister
of Home Affairs, Ms. Gail
Teixeira took the first salute out-
side the Ministry of the Home
Affairs Ministry on Brickdam,
before the parade moved north
into Avenue of the Republic, east
into Church Street, north into


Camp Street, west into Young
Street and North into Police
Headquarters, Eve Leary.
There, Commissioner of Po-
lice Mr. Winston Felix took the
other salute before he addressed
the gathering at the TSU square.
Although the address was
shortened by an early morning
heavy downpour, Felix told the gath-
ering that there has been a slow but
encouraging change in the perfor-
mance of the Police Force.
He urged them to continue
serving at the highest possible
level since the society needs
their protection.
According to the Com-
missioner, the force is being
attacked from all sides, but
they must not run from the
attack "but stand up and fight
instead" in an effort to make
the society safe for all.

Validum, in the report on
his stewardship over 2004-05,
commended those who worked
feverishly with him, including
Abdool; Lewis; Fraser-Phang,
Vice-President, Ms. Don Franke
and Immediate Past President,
Mr. Affeeze Khan.
Validum said the past one
was a hallmark year, as many
issues affecting Rotary Clubs
worldwide were mirrored by
the local counterpart.
According to him, because
of unexpected events during the
period" fund-raising activities
were heavily curtailed but the
club had an adequate budget to
complete more than 90 per cent
of what was planned.
Among'" them were four
medical outreaches to Sophia,
Mabura, Bartica and Little
Biaboo.
Validum reported that the
club held its traditional church
service, the Christmas party to
cheer the elderly, a cocktail
party, a Joint Clubs Day of
Sports and repaired facilities at
Guyana Scouts Association
ground in Woolfoed Avenue, in
the city, too, while providing
medical facilities for residents of
Karaburi in Region One


(Barima/Waini).
He said Hurricane Ivan, the
Asian tsunami and the floods
here severely altered the club's
work plan but it responded ad-
mirably and remains keenly in-
volved in joint relief activities.
Validum challenged
Rotarians to strive for more
achievements and mobilise en-
ergy for pursuing the goals with
dedication.
On the same occasion, cer-
tificates were awarded to the'
Inner Wheel and Rotaract clubs
of Georgetown and special
awards went to other members,
including Rotarian of the Year,
Mr Patrick Parsatoon.
Delivering the charge, Act-
ing District Governor, Mr John
Bart said Rotarians worldwide
have shown their commitment
to peace and, from the incep-
tion, helped war refugees, pro-
vided disaster assistance and&
promoted international ex-
changes.
He encouraged Rotarians io
do the same locallI
Meanwhile, Mr James
Griffith took over at the helm
of Rotary Club' bf:
Georgetown Central, suc-
ceeding Mr Conrad Plummer.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE July.S4 0b. .' 19


PURE


From centre page

we are the only people on
earth, until there's a sudden
movement far below from
one of the Amerindians,
walking across a clearing in
the jungle. Waterfalls,
mountains, forests, and more
waterfalls the view from the
plane. Indeed, Guyana means
'land of many waters", after
its 300 waterfalls and the
numerous rum-coloured
rivers snaking through it.
The Orinduik Falls are
gentler than Kaieteur and we
take a dip in the mouth of the
falls. Orinduik is home to a
diamond mining community and
we're joined by an Amerindian
man, the father of a bemused
boy we have befriended. He
tells us in a smattering of
English how he often rows
across the river to Brazil, to go
to the nearest shop.
Most people in Guyana will
never have been.to this beautiful
wilderness: they live clustered
in the coastal villages or in
Georgetown, where we return.
It's a drier, noisier, smellier
experience, filled with white-
washed wooden shops, wooden
schools, wooden houses and a
great, cast-iron market.
Georgetown claims the world's
tallest free-standing wooden
building St George's Cathedral,
designed by a nineteenth-
century Brit. The doors, when
we visit, are flung open onto a
service, song spilling into the
street. Charming colonial
architecture is dotted
everywhere, much of it
weathered. Guyana is below sea-
level at high tide (hence the
muddy rivers) and so a
protective sea wall stretches for
miles and buildings are slightly


GOLD


raised from the ground.
We often travel around by
"taxi", which involves cramming
as many people as possible into
a van, invariably with Guyanese
music blaring out as it hurtles
through the streets, the driver
singing along enthusiastically.
It's a curiously exhilarating
experience until we pass the
first of several road accidents
that we are to witness. Drink-
driving is an endemic problem
here. As the van slows down
beside a crowd of people, I
glimpse a bloodied body in the
dusty street. The van speeds on
again, the jubilant music now
sounding jarringly discordant.
At the ferry port, we wait
for hours in the afternoon sun,
street sellers sustaining us
with a steady supply of fried
plantain crisps covered in
mango syrup. Finally, a ferry
glides us across the brown
river to Berbice. In the village,
I lie awake each night, unable to
sleep over the monsoon rain
which clatters against the thin
roof, the incessant chirping of
crickets; and the shrill cock-a-
doodle-doos that send me
stumbling out of bed and into a
breakfast of mashed pumpkin,
watery daal and jackfruit. The
night's rain leaves behind a
sweet freshness each morning
and our days are all shot
through with coconut water,
Banks beer and El Dorado rum.
Electricity here is a fickle,
ghostly thing. One evening, we
are left suddenly sitting in
darkness when the power cuts
out, so we decide to go to sleep
early. Sometime in the middle of
the night, the television turns
back on, the lights flash open
and the taps start running again.
We drive through Berbice,
past sugar cane fields where


people work producing
Demerara sugar, and take a ferry
ride across the Corentyne river
to Suriname, formerly Dutch
Guiana. The capital city,
Paramaribo, offers a strangely
familiar nightlife experience -
Amsterdam's poorer
doppelganger.
Back ,in .Georgetown,
waiting for a taxi to the airport,
we do a last-minute dash around
the street stalls: all I salvage are
an oil painting of the Kaieteur
Falls (a rather Surrealist
interpretation), a shell necklace,
a woven basket and as much El
Dorado rum as possible, before
the plane carries us to a
connecting flight at Barbados,
and the waters change from
brown to a shock of bright
blue.
The coastal towns and
villages of Guyana feel like
being in India, the Caribbean
and 1950s England all at the
same time. The interior,
though, feels like no other
place on earth; it's worth
visiting, before the loggers
get there. (FROM THE
GUARDIAN OF LONDON)

THE much anticipated O'Neil/
'Rivers clash 2, will no longer
take place after Kathy Rivers
has been ruled out of boxing for
four weeks by her doctor, due to
a fractured right hand.
Instead Guyana's only re-
maining champion; Gwendolyn
O'Neil will now clash with Do-
minican Republic Mariana


KATHY RIVERS
Garcia at the July 9 showdown
at the Cliff Anderson Sports
Hall.
O'Neil told Chronicle Sport
yesterday that she is a bit dis-
appointed but she will remain
focused on her new opponent.
"I would stay focus, but
still confident, I wanted to fight
her (Garcia) for some time now
O'Neil, who is the WIBC
light heavyweight champion, has
a chance to become the undis-
puted champion in her division
since she will be fighting for the
WIBA light heavyweight Cham-
pionship belt this time round.
'The Stealth Bomber' as she
is known due to her punching
abilities, is looking to dispatch
her new opponent in style.
"I was to fight her over a
year and a half ago. But I wasn't
getting a chance to put my hand
on she. This is an opportunity
to beat her. I make up me mind
for war, I ain't going and play
with anyone in the ring," O'Neil
stressed.
Garcia who is expected in
Guyana on Thursday has three
victories, one by way of knock-
out and two losses to her name,
while O'Neil has won 10 fights,
six by way of knockouts with
four losses and one draw.


The July 9 card, pro-
moted by Briso Promotiofhs,
Rock and Sock Production
and Roop Promotions is' ex-
pected to have five females
and three male fights.

ICC Trophy cricket...




Denmark make it two from two


Bermuda and Denmark both
claimed surprise victories on
the second day of action at the
ICC Trophy. Despite the ab-
sence of captain Clay Smith,
Bermuda bounced back fiom its
opening day defeat to Ireland to
beat UAE by 30 runs at Lisburn.

GROUP
Denmark produced the
biggest shock of the opening
two rounds in following up
their opening day victory over
Uganda with a comprehensive
103-run defeat of USA. Den-
mark took full advantage of bat-
ting first, intelligently stretching
an ageing USA side by working
the ball around the field.
Frederik Klokker carried his bat


for his maiden international cen-
tury while Carsten Pedersen, the
captain, contributed 64. In re-
ply, the USA never recovered
from a poor start and were all
out for 177 runs. Klokker is due
to travel to England for a trial
with Warwickshire tonight after
performing well with the gloves
in an earlier trial with the county
side.
Bermuda were struggling
against UAE on 158 for 7 when
Lionel Cann hit an explosive 45
off 17 balls to take them to 217
for 9. UAE collapsed from 67
for 1 to 84 for 6 and a 64-run
contribution from Fahad Usman
was not enough to bring .UAE
back into contention.
Ireland maintained their

ST JOHN'S, Antigua The West Indies selectors have cho-
sen seven players to go to Sri Lanka to replace the mem-
bers of the West Indies 'A' team who have joined the se-
nior team for the tour to Sri Lanka.
The players who will leave over the weekend are: Tishan
Maraj; Lendl Simmons; Sewnarine Chattergoon; Darren Sammy;
Kenroy Peters; Richard Kelly and Jean Paul.
They will join
the West Indies 'A'
team in time for the
m third and final 'Test'
of the series and the
I five One-day games.

nal score of 104 all out from 32
overs.

GROUP B
Colin Smith, Scotland's
wicketkeeper-batsman, pro-
vided a perfect tonic to his team-
mates before returning to Scot-
land tomorrow for police duties
during the G8 Summit. Smith
top-scored in Scotland's seven-
wicket victory over Canada, at
Bangor, with 86 not out.
After winning the toss,
Scotland's bowlers took full ad-
vantage of the morning moisture
in the fast pitch to restrict
Canada to 189 for 8 in their 50
overs. A strong breeze dried out
the pitch by the time Scotland
came to bat. Despite losing two
wickets without scoring and a
third with the score on 37,
Smith and Fraser Watts, the
opener, remained calm and
safely guided their side to vic-
tory with Watts finishing on 81
not out.


Holland completely over-
whelmed Oman in a totally
one-side contest, winning by
258 runs. Bas Zuiderent hit 119
while Daan van Bunge made 92
as Holland scored 325 for 4.
Oman were unable to deal with
Holland's pace attack and
crumbled to 67 all out.
Namibia's 98-run victory
over Papua New Guinea was
also convincing with JB Burger
and Kola Burger both hitting
half-centuries and Serel Burger
.grabbing three wickets. How-
ever the early part of Namibia's
innings was a stuttering effort
and at 129 for 5 they were
grateful for Kola Burger's 58
from No.9. This ultimately com-
fortable victory will be a boost
to Namibia, one of the pre-tour-
nament favourites, after their
two-run defeat against Canada.
Today is a rest day in the
ICC Trophy. There will be a
full programme of six
matches tomorrow.


positive start to the event with
a comfortable 127-run victory
over Uganda. Ireland's total of
231 for 8 was built on solid in-
nings from Ed Joyce (40) and
Eoin Morgan (39) with Andrew


White top-scoring with 45.
Uganda were quickly in trouble
in their reply, slumping to 30 for
7. A 59-run contribution from
Frank Nsubuga added a degree
of respectability to Uganda's fi-

EHEARTBROKEN about your ex his nose pick-
FIVE LESSONS FOR THE HEARTBROKEN ab'ioumnde hes~zi'
ing, his nit picking -is forgot-
ten. In your mind, he's Denzel


MY GENERATION believed
we'd get it right when we
married, we'd do it for life.
-But the statistics tell a differ-
ent story. More couples in
their twenties and thirties
are getting divorced than any
other age group. But its not
just ordinary people like you
and I that are suffering with
this problem. In the last
week, recent news shows,
Terry McMillian of 'How
Stella Got Her Grove Back'
fame is now in court defend-
ing her 10-year marriage to
a husband who now says
"he's gay". And if darling
Halle Berry is struggling on
the happiness front, you may
think who are you to expect
your marriage to last! Trend-
spotters call this a 'starter
marriage', like a starter
home: something you quickly
outgrow.
When I researched the phe-
nomenon, I soon discovered that
though starter marriages are
short, they're certainly not pain-
less. Sheron, 31, told me: "I
thought I was marrying for life,
that we'd grow old together, but
suddenly I was on my own
again. Everything I believed was
turned on its head."
But if your heart is broken,
the lessons set out below can
help you speed up the healing
process.

LESSON ONE -

are five states to grine denial.
anger. bargaining, depression


and acceptance. They don't al-
ways come in that order.

Exercise: A trip down
memory lane. Time for a long
talk. You need a friend, photos
of you and your ex, any cards
or love letters, plus a scrap-
book. And probably some tis-
sues.
Across the- first page of
your scrapbook, draw a
timeline. On the left, write the
date you met your ex, on the
right, the date you split up.
Now plot key dates in your
relationship along the line first
kiss, first holiday, and first row.
Create a page for each step, with
photos and memories. You'll
probably laugh and cry, but
you'll also see patterns and.

friend's


role is to ask questions, like a
reporter trying to get the facts.
Even if you don't want your
Love, Story to be over, this ex-
ercise helps make sense of the
relationship and shows it has a
beginning, a middle and end. Fi-
nally, put the book somewhere
inaccessible until you're feeling
better

rolled into one: you belonged
together. Maybe you should
text him.

What it means: Bargaining.
You're in the bargaining phase,
persuading yourself that if you
behave differently, or dye your
hair another colour, your rela-
tionship could be revived. Be
honest with yourself are you
only remembering the good
times?

Exercise: Sad Songs Say So
Much. Did you make weepy
compilation tapes in your teens?
Time to do it again. First, choose
songs to represent your rela-
tionship. Do include the track
that reminds you of when you
first met, but also pick songs
that reflect when you broke up.
Then choose songs for now:
Indulge your bad mood for a
few minutes, sing, sob and
shout along. Finally, pick songs
representing your future with-
out him. Choose uplifting tracks
with no-connection to your ex.


II%


Choose one activity per day
this week. Keep a diary of your
progress.

Treat yourself: Chocolate

cals the perfect excuse to in-
dulge.


What it means: Anger.
You probably guessed this
is anger. The good news is that:
(a) it's natural and (b) it's an-
other "stage" so you're a step
closer to feeling better.

Exercise: The Anger Hour
Time to let it out. Play loud
music, read the paper and con-
centrate on the stories that
seem unjust, to wind yourself
up even more. Then find paper
and a pen, preferably a red one.
Who are you angriest with?
Your ex, your in-laws, your
friends? Set a timer for one
hour, and then write them a let-
ter. Imagine this is your one
chance to tell them how mean,
cruel, petty, pathetic and mad-
-dening they are.
You won't send this letter,
but you'll have fun destroying
it. Tear it up into tiny pieces,
screw it up into a ball and kick

couples cross your path con-

What it means: You've hit
the depression stage. The prob-
lem with depression is that it
isolates you so when people
tell you it will pass, you
don't believe them. Impor-
tant note: If you're really
down, don't hesitate to visit
your GP for professional
help.

Exercise: Your Balance

The idea behind the
stock-take is to assess your
emotional state and find
practical ways to feel better.
Take an A4 sheet and divide it
into quarters. Add the following

ONE beautiful girl, out of a bevy of nine teen
agers, will be crowned Miss Region Six next
week.
The pageant, organised by the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports
Club, is scheduled for July 9, at Area 'H' ground, Rose Hall Town,
Corentyne, Berbice.
This is the second time around that the club is hosting such an
event, and its purpose is to select a role model for young females
in Berbice.


The club's motto, 'In Pursuit of Excellence' will be held strong
as it selects a young woman as "... television hostess for one of
the club's monthly television programmes, official spokesperson of
its anti-drugs/pro-education programme and (to) appear in a com-
mercial about the dangers of teenage pregnancy and pre-marital sex,"
the committee announced.
The girls will make the night beautiful when they participate in an
opening dance and personal introduction segment, and compete in sequences
of casual wear, evening gown, and talent on the July evening. A live 'edu-
cational segment' was scheduled for DTV 8 on July 1.


After those rounds of competition, the four delegates whose
total scores top the charts will be selected as finalists. They will
each be required to answer a question on their respective platform
themes, and the one whose answer is most impressive in the opin-
ion of the judges, will be crowned queen.
The show will also be packed with other entertainment,
with musical performances by Lady Tempest, The Mighty Rebel
and Rose Hall Cultural Group, and appearances by comedi-
ans Henry Rodney and Margaret Lawrence. The Master of
Ceremonies for the evening is Avery Gomes.


Profiles of the nine beauties to participate in this prestigious affair are presented below:

have been happily married for about a year, but I have a problem. I dated a girl when I was
in school, and she was my first love. Unfortunately, I never told her how I felt, and we grew
apart. I've thought about her ever since.
Every time we saw each other after that we never talked, but we would catch one another looking
at each other. When our eyes met, something in me melted. I tried many times before I married to tell
her how I felt, but never did due to fear of rejection.
She recently married and I know I should let it be, but I can't stop thinking about what would have
happened if I'd told her. Now don't get me wrong, I love my wife, but I can't help feeling I married the
wrong person.

T evin, in Milton's poem 'Paradise Lost' the capital of Hell is called Pandemonium. Pande
monium is a place of uproar, confusion and chaos. It was designed by Mulciber, a fallen
XLL-angel, who formerly designed buildings in Heaven.
We don't suggest that you interfere in someone else's marriage, but your story illustrates what
happens when people fail to act from their deepest feelings. They drag themselves and others into a
state of confusion which has no easy resolution. It is as if they have become the mayor of Pandemo-
mum.

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome dear friends. Do you know that children
who are good at school subjects tend to also be
good at practical subjects, at sports and at mixing
with. people and making friends? Yes. Why? The
key to their success in life is not superior intelligence.
The key to their success is motivation and curios-
ity. Be a self-starter. Be curious. Ask questions.
Be able to examine closely what you are learning.
Keep in touch with your study group always!

'Bye.

IN LAST WEEK
Solution to Punctuation & Spelling
The Fox and the Stork (A Fable by Aesop)

A fox invited a stork to dinner, but all he provided were
large flat dishes of soup. The fox lapped his up easily,
but the stork with her long bill could not get any. The
sly fox laughed cruelly at her misfortune.

So, a few days later, the stork returned the invitation. She
served a tall narrow jug of food to each of them. With
her long thin neck and bill she could reach right to the
bottom of her jug. The fox, however, went hungry be-
cause he could not reach the food in his jug. It served
him right for playing a trick on the stork.


Letter Writing
Let's hope that you were able to use last
week's sample letter of invitation to fashion
your own letter. Were you able to invite a
friend to accompany you on a two-day trip to a
chosen camp sight in the Essequibo River dur-
ing the August holidays? We hope your answer
is in the affirmative. There are really a lot of
camping places to choose from in the
Essequibo River. Any place offering comfort
in that vast part of Guyana is safe and with
good food. The catch is that you'll be able to
explore, to some extent, our unspoilt rain for-
est.

Try writing another letter this week. Send it to
a pen friend in another country. Let him/her
know about your school life during this time
when you have just begun to be really serious
with examination preparations.

IN THIS WEEK

Reading for Understanding
First passage

Sanjay
Sanjay was the most unsuitable person to be
a spy. His discovery was inevitable. His ac-
tions were suspicious from the start. He was
always looking out of the corner of his eyes to
see if others were watching him. He said he
was British, but his speech had a Norwegian
accent. Several times he forgot his name was
supposed to be Mr. Simon. Finally, some se-
cret papers were found- in his room.
1. What is the meaning of inevitable?
a) never invited
b) grim discovery
c) bound to happen
d) never to happen

2. The true identity of the character is one of
these.
a) British
b) Norwegian
c) Indian
d) Guyanese'

3. The best title for the story is this.
a) "The Spy"
b) "The Man who played Spy"
c), "The Spy Catcher"
d) "Operation No Spy"

Second Passage

Contents of the Dead Man's Pocket
Jason understood fully that he might actually be go-
ing to die like the man at his feet. And it occurred
to him that, if he fell, all hte was ever going to get
out of life he would have already had. Nothing, then,
ever could be changed; and could ever be changed;
and nothing more no last experience or pleasure
- could ever be added to his life. He wished, then,
that he had not allowed his wife to go off by herself
tonight and on similar nights. He thought of all
the evenings he spent away from her, working, and
regretted them. He thought wonderingly of his fierce
ambition and of the direction his life had taken; he
thought of the hours he'd spent by himself, filling the
yellow sheet that had brought him out here. Con-
tents of the dead man's pockets he thought with
sudden fierce anger, a wasted life.

1):What do Jason's thoughts reveal about the
kind of person he has become?

2) Mention one detail that supports your deci-
sion.

Cause and Effect
NOTE: An important key to comprehending both
fiction and non-fiction' is, to understand the.
cause and effect relationships in What you
read. The cause is the reason something hap-
pened: The effect is what happened. The re-m
lationship between the two is the key to the
action. Most often clue words such as reason,,
since, because, thus, so, therefore, conse-
quently, and as a result may help you identify
these relationships.


This following. paragraph. deals with cause and
effect. It has been scrambled to help you re-
ally experience how cause and effect (the re-
lationship) works. Rearrange the sentences so
that the paragraph can present a smooth read-
ing.

The song referred to the President as "Uncle Philip"
and,. consequently, our Chief Executive enjoyed a
good laugh. A large and friendly crowd turned out
to cheer and applaud. The Bunkurians like
Philippians for the most part, so they made efforts
to welcome the president properly. A little tune was
composed to go with the presentation. A little skit
was put on for the president's entertainment be-
cause the Bunkurians know our leader is a fan of
drama. .The Philippian dignitaries enjoyed this skit
very much. Most of the island dignitaries went to
the airport to greet the arriving head of state.

Following Directions.
NOTE: The ability to follow written directions is
important, in many different aspects of modern
life. Misunderstanding the directions for do-
ing things like an experiment or fitting up a bi-
cycle can be frustrating. Failing to understand
the directions for using an appliance can be
very dangerous.

Read the following set of directions. They are con-
tained in four steps that have been fused into one
mass of writing. Write out the directions so that the
four steps can be seen. The four steps are in or-
der.

How fast does water heat up? A simple experi-
ment will tell you.
Get three jars of the same size. Fill one with water,
another with cooking oil and the third with .sand.
Leave the substances in the jars for about an hour
until all reach room temperature. Then place the
jars in a saucepan that has about 3 inches of hot
water in it. Put the pan with the jars in it on a burner
of the stove set at low heat. Check the tempera-
ture of the different substances every five minutes
for half an hour. Do this by inserting a cooking ther-
mometer in the middle of each substance and leav-
ing it for 15 seconds. Record your temperature for
each substance. Which one heats up fastest? Now
take the jars out of the hot water and put them in a
pan of cool water. Once again, measure the tem-
perature of the substances every 5 minutes for half
an hour. Did the substance that heated up fastest
also cooled fastest?

Fact and Opinion
NOTE: A fact is a statement that can be proved
true or false either by first-hand observation
or by checking the appropriate sources. An
opinion is a statement expressing a thought or
judgment about something which cannot be
proved or disproved.

Read the following paragraph. Then write two
facts and two opinions.

The piano is an instrument for which Chopin com-
posed much music. No home with' growing children
should be without this beautiful instrument. Every
child should be required to take several years of pi-,
ano lessons. Piano lessons may be taken in the
home or in a music school. There are some piano
teachers who also have other jobs to supplement
their incomes: Nb matter what lessons cost, the ex-
pense will be worth it.

POLICE investigating a mur-
der in 1974, used a tracker
dog, which bit one of the teen-
aged suspects. The policemen
also violently extracted con-
fessions from them.
At the trial ofAbdool Azim
Sattaur, Rafeek Mohamed, and


by the Judges' Rules, at the time
tley gave their confession state-
ments or made their admissions.
They were all arrested in
the early hours of the morning
of May 7, 1974, and within one
and a quarter hours, all commit-
ted themselves by making oral
and written statements to their
detriment, Chancellor Haynes
had said.
The Chancellor pointed
out that the admissibility of
Sattaur's confession state-
ment was objected to at the
trial on two grounds: (a) that
it resulted from "pressure"
and was not free and volun-
tary, and (b) that as he (then
15) was a young person or a
juvenile, the taking of the
statement in the absence of
his parent or guardian was a
breach of the letter and spirit
of the Judges' Rules.
The Judge nevertheless ad-
mitted it at a trial within a trial
as voluntarily taken, refusing to
exercise his discretionary power
of exclusion for the alleged
breach of the Judges' Rules, and
the question raised in this ap-
peal was whether his decision
to do so was right, Chancellor
Haynes emphasised.
He went on to state: "It
however, turned out that subse-
quent to the admission of the
confession statement, evidence
relevant to the question whether
the trial Judge ought properly
to have admitted the confession
was given by three prosecution
witnesses and a doctor. These
witnesses either testified at, or
should have been called upon
the voir dire. In the case of
those who testified in the pres-
ence of the jury, there was con-
flict on vital matters touching
the propriety of the admissibil-


ity of Sattaur's confession so
much so that had those matters
been raised at the voir dire.
They would certainly have been
relevant to the question of ad-
missibility seeing that they
raised substantial suspicion of a
lack of fairness and of non-dis-
closure of the real reason why
Sattaur's confession statement
was taken with no adult civil-
ian present.
At the hearing of the appeal,
Mr. Loris Ganpatsingh, Assis-
tant Director of Public Prosecu-
tions, appeared for the State,
while Mr. Martin Zephyr rep-
resented the first appellant, and
Mr. G.M. Farnum, S.C., the
second appellant.
Appellant Mohamed had
told the Court that after he told
the Police that he did not know
where the gun was, the Police
dog was let loose on him and he
was bitten several times about
the body.
The Chancellor had added:
"As regards the appellant
Sattaur, a conviction must rest
on the statement. Looking at all
the evidence led at the voir dire
and at the trial, at least there ap-
pear serious doubts about its
admissibility.
"That being so, the case


against the accused is not
weighty enough to warrant a re-
trial.
As regards the appellant
Mohamed, his age at the date of
the alleged offence was just a
couple of weeks over 15; he has
been in custody continuously
now for over two years and a
retrial will entail his remaining
in custody for another indefinite
period, and he is now just a few
months over the age of 17. Just
as in the case of the appellant
Sattaur, a damaging written
statement was obtained from
this appellant.
"He was awakened from
his sleep and arrested between
1 am and 1.30 am on May 7.
He was escorted to the Police
Station arriving there at 3.40 am;
and by 4.10 am had implicated
himself in writing. Again, just as
in the case of the appellant
Sattaur, he had immediately vol-
unteered to tell the Police 'what
happen'.
"It is appropriate to men-
tion that the third accused in the
Court below also made damag-
ing admissions by 4.45 am.
They were all young persons
taken from their homes to the
Police Station at 3.40 am, and
within one hour and five min-

utes, and before daylight, with
no parent or relative there, ev-
eryone had implicated himself.
''Such coincidence causes
the Court to lift its judicial eye-
brow and reminds it of the oft-
sighted comment of CAVE J. in
R. v. Thompson (25) (1891-94
All E.R. Report at P. 380)
'It is remarkable that it is
of very rare occurrence for evi-
dence of a confession to be given
when the proof of the prisoner's
guilt is otherwise clear and sat-
isfactory; but when it is not
clear and satisfactory the pris-
oner is not infrequently alleged
to have been seized with the de-
sire, born of penitence and re-
morse, to supplement it with a
confession, and this desire itself
again vanishes as soon as he ap-
pears in a court of justice."
The Chancellor con-
cluded: "Regrettably, we have
an uncomfortable feeling
about these written admis-
sions. For all of these rea-
sons, we do. not think either
appellant should face a re-
trial. Accordingly, we set
aside the conviction of the
appellant Sattaur and
Mohamed and enter a judg-
ment of acquittal of both ac-
cused.

New website offers



opportunity to artists, writers


By Shauna Jemmott

WITH a mission to electron i
call embrace local artists, an:
overseas-based Guyanese art-.
ist/writer has launched a
website, offering various lit-
erary and creative art compe-
titions, to Guyanese students:
with an interest in the field.
Natasha Martindale, the
website's creator, said an online
database, GYSPHERE.Com,
targets mainly students, offering
them an opportunity to launch
their work to the world at large.


"GYSPHERE dedicates it-
self to the creation/showcasing
of art through creative thought
and expression with optimism
in motivating students to their
fullest creative potential,"
Martindale told the Chronicle
late last week.
GYSPHERE stands for
"Guyanese students' electronic
hemisphere of expression
through creative thought, lan-
guage and art," and is a place
where talents will not only be.
showcased, but also created.;
It particularly offers this


opportunity to students aged
12 to 19, who have a passion
for the arts through writ-
ing, reporting, critiquing,
drawing, painting, and fash-
ion and who believe in
themselves as talented indi-;
viduals, searching for an elec-
tronic avenue through which
their work can be launched.
She said one of the guiding
principles of the project is to
encourage students and adults
to pursue their creativity to the
fullest of their potential, which
requires much more than just

respect for their differences.
"In pursuit of excellence...
GYSPHERE is committed to
creative pursuit of students and
young adults to their maximum
potential. This commitment re-
quires not only respect for the
differences in students and
young adults from widely di-
verse social, economic, cultural,
linguistic, intellectual, racial,
educational, and religious back-
grounds, but also a sustained ef-
fort to use that diversity to ful-
fil its commitment," the writer,
stated.
Martindale added that
her website's commitment to
excellence calls for the nec-
essary knowledge, skills,
behaviours and attitudes for
full participation in a demo-
cratic society and within the
global community.
"Active involvement and
hard work are required on. the
part of an academic environment
that spurs the growth of creative
thought and expression. Since
adolescence is a period of
change and questioning, the en-
vironment created herein must
guide and nurture students (and)
young adults as they strive to
express themselves and become
responsible adults," Martindale
explained.
She assured this newspaper
that in all that GYSPHERE
does, its main quest is excel-
lence, and excellence is the stan-
dard by which it must measure
students and itself. But in order
to achieve and maintain such ex-
cellence, there are certain ele-
ments that are important to the
GYSPHERE community.
"Freedom of thought, of ex-
pression, and of intellectual ex-


change as well as disciplined ef-
forts is essential if it's to attain
this excellence. To these ends,
GYSPHERE commits itself to
fostering an atmosphere condu-
cive to intellectual inquiry, inno-
vation, enhanced self-esteem,'
mutual respect, and caring
among all of its electronic com-
munity," she said.
Not only students, but par-
ents and educators can also par-
ticipate in, the project by en-
couraging their children and oth-
ers, and supporting their talent,
passion and personal drives.
Parents and educators are also
invited to recommit and show-
case the work of their children
and students through
GYSPHERE.
Martindale hopes that
through art, she can create
and promote a state-of-the-
art website for Guyanese, by
Guyanese students and
youths.
Martindale said the website
will be managed by a team of 16
students, who will be selected
from various secondary and high
schools countrywide, particu-
larly those with excellent grade
points.
"I hope to have students
showcase "their own work" and
express themselves homing in
on their individualities finding
themselves and being confident
with their style and
creativity.... (showcasing) their
talents in various fields," she
said, adding that a representative
from each school will be
selected by students, to write
monthly reports on what's
happening in the school, school
activities who's who in


schools, and creating Student
Reporters.
Students can also submit ar-
ticles critiquing various areas
that they feel needs improve-
-ment, and become engaged in
online poetry slams, in which
groups can be formed by vari-
ous high schools, poems posted
by subjects, and debates held in
poetic forms.
Short stories and script writ-
ers are also welcomed, and an
,'e-card' greeting service is also
offered, where students who are
members are encouraged to cre-
ate, design and showcase their
original e-cards.
Martindale said she has of-
fered a few professionals a peek
at the GYSPHERE.com website
and it has already received tre-
mendous support.
Local designer Michelle
Cole has launched a project to
seek the best student designer,
through GYSPHERE.
She said students are invited
to apply for position of
"Student Representatives'
through the website's contact
page, submitting brief
biographies of themselves, along
with a recommendation from
their teacher, and a head shot
photograph. In the application,
student must express why he/
she should be selected as a
school rep for the website.
Students are also free to
nominate others for the
position, Martindale said.

vertising Company in New
York City, and is a former

MARGUERITE



DOLPHIN



1918-2000,-


by Petamber Persaud
Y ou would find.her char
acteristic calligraphic
signature, upright and
clear in a heavier shade of
black, gracing the beginning
of numerous Guyanese .pub-
lications as she diligently
pursued the preservation of
our literary heritage, her
first love and only marriage.
That marriage produced o% er
thirty writers b3 creating an
outlet for their uork: that
marriage adopted established
writerss jith the creation of
the climate for further recog-
nition via the publication
'Kaie'. Between the years
1965 and 1985, Celeste Dol-
phin edited more than a
dozen issues of 'Kaie' jour-
nal, the official organ of the
National History and Arts
Council.
That Council came into be-
ing in 1965 with her sister,


Lynette DeWeever Dolphin at
its helm, publishing its first is-
.sue of 'Kaie' in October of the
same year. That body assimi-
lated the National History and
Cultural Council started in 1963
which, in its turn, had incorpo-
rated the National History and
Culture Committee, the Na-
tional Arts Council and the His-
torical Monuments Committee.
The Kai.e journal is a
researcher's delight, a recording
of official (and officious) mat-
ters pertaining to literature and
culture between the late 60s and
80s, a repository of writers'
conferences, the Caribbean Fes-
tival of Arts (Canfe.tii, music
festivals and much more.
Celeste Dolphin was born
on December 29, 1918 into a lit-
erary and musical family; she
loved listening to Chopin and
"looking through the window":
Her mother, Clarice DeWeever
Dolphin, was a. piano player,
teacher of music and dance.


o f


Celeste's cousin, Guy
DeWeever, authored 'The
Children's Story of Guyana'
first published in 1932. (Guy
DeWeever was married to Irmin
Bryce, sister to Elmhna Seymour.)
Her father, Edward Lugard Dol-
phin, was headmaster at.
DeWillem Primary School
when she was born. In 1932, he
became headmaster of Broad
Street School, the first school to
be made a government school in
British Guiana. For his legend-
ary work.in education, that in-.
stitution was labelled with his
surname. Coming from such a
background, Celeste soon gained-
entry into Bishops' High School.
She started work in the
Colonial Service at a time
when women could not be
married and stay in the ser-
vice..That rule,.coupled with,
the retirement age at fifty,
accounted for many public
service career girls remain-
ing unwedded. Her first post-
10 --I d


ing was as a Grade 2 typist/
clerk in the Post Office Sav-
ing Bank and by 1941 she be-
came a clerical assistant sort-
ing return mail. This frus-
trating task she dealt with by
converting some fascinating
facts into fiction for the
Chronicle Christmas An-
nual, winning many prizes in
the process.
While at the Post Office,.
she along with Mona Camacho
and Sunny Campbell formed a
book club, devouring the Penguin
.books that were popular in
Georgetown at the time although
costing a "princely sum of 12
Scents" per copy. A. J. Seymour
related in his autobiography
how he was also attracted to the
reading circle as he was begin-
ning to write poetry. In-one of
his sonnets, Seymour admired
,Dolphin's competence, "the
swing with which the slight/taut
figure of you turns to a deed/
... tll you see it reel."
*She always had an inking for
writing and a special kinship to
the printed word.
In 1953, she published her
own little.book, 'Children of
P A


Guyana'.
-.- TUhe folMwingyear. she cre-
aied a niche flor her hteraut ral'-
ent. Upon her return from a pe-
riod of training at the British
Broadcasting Corporation
(BBC), she introduced 'Broad-
casts to Schools' in 1954, piu-
neering what was later to be la-
belled 'distance education'.
Celeste Dolphin took charge of
this area of radio with a pas-'
sion, writing and voicing scripts.
She was a stickler for good En-
glish and proper pronunciation; -
before anything was aired, it
was rehearsed and rehearsed un-
til it was correct.
In the 60s, she was part of
a professional group of broad-
casters including Victor
Forsythe, Carlotta Croal, Gloria
Tiam Fook, Lorna Lampkin and
Rosemary Hazel that distin-
guished itself by conforming to
good broadcasting standards.
One of her greatest contri-
butions to Guyanese literature
was putting into print oral pre-
sentations made on radio. She
commissioned A. J. Seymour
on, several occasions to re-
write his radio scripts for -
book publication, leaving us
gems like 'Introduction to
Guyanese Writing' and 'Look-
ing at Poetry'. Other books of,
this nature included 'The Riv,-'
ers of British Guiana' by W. T.


Lord and 'Nature Stud\ '.by
Violet Graham.
While she was 'prim and
proper' on the printed page,
on the radio and in her man-
ner of dress, she didn't avoid
stepping on the toes of oth-
ers e.peciill\ if she thought
they were sticking out like
sore thumbs. She got into
many skirmishes, be it with
the head of the church or the
head of the country. But she
also had grace and tenderness
that 'outstrips the rose's'.
In 1990, she retired from
producing 'Talking About Edu-
cation' and 'Broadcasts to
Schools' programmes.
And on November 17,
2000, she retired from this
life, leaving behind her many -
trophies like the Medal of
Service (M.S.), the Golden
Arrow of Achievement (A.A.)
and the Cacique's Crown of
Honour (C.C.H.), testaments
of her outstanding contribu-
tion to the country of her
birth.

Guyana Chro


* I
i-
-r Alk


By Linda Rutherford


WHEN the 'Twin Towers' of
the World Trade Center came
crashing down around lower
Manhattan on the morning of
Tuesday, September 11, 2001,
at the hands of kamikaze ter-
rorists, taking with them the
lives of 24 Guyanese among
scores of people of other na-
tionalities, not only was the
integrity of U.S. national se-
curity severely tested, but the
integrity of one of its oldest
military institutions as well -
the U.S. Coast Guard Acad-
emy.
"We were thrust into the na-
tional eye, because we were ba-
sically one of the main respond-
ers to the attacks. So the 'Coast-
Guard' had shifted from a De-
partment of Transportation to a
Department of Homeland Secu-
rity," Sub-Lieutenant Marion
Chichester, one of 206 young
ensigns to graduate recently from
the New London, Connecticut
institution said Thursday.
"What the 'Coast-Guard'
was doing during 'September
11'... was a complete shift [in
responsibility] for them... so we
were kiada shot into the lime-
light," he told reporters at a press
conference at Army Headquar-
ters, Camp Ayanganna.
Just 19 at the time, he was
one of two Guyanese. on an un-
precedented four-year scholar-
ship at the Academy. The other
was Roger Nurse, who turned
23 last Friday and also holds the
rank of Sub-Lieutenant. They
had both been in the U.S. only
three months when the tragedy
occurred.
Now a serving member of
the naval arm of the Guyana
Defence Force (GDF) like Nurse,
Chichester, who comes from a ,
military background and whose
field of study while at the Acad-
emy was electrical engineering,
said the events of '9/11' "took
on an extra burden for us be-
cause... there are, already, a lot
of missions that the U.S. Coast


men, or 'swabs' as they are
known in naval parlance, faced
at the time, given that they were
fairly new to the country and
hardly knew anyone there out-
side of their colleagues,
Chichester said:
"It was very tough on all of
us [the international corpsmen]
because we're not American citi-
zens. But, we lived among
American citizens, and some of
our classmates... our best
friends... their dads... their
uncles... or somebody close to
them were a part of this. And,
of course, the country you're in
is in turmoil... is at war... so it
kind of had a significant effect on
you and your grades, because
your morale goes down. When
there's trouble at home, there's
usually trouble on base.
There were also the myriad
tear-jerkers that came out of the
tragedy, which stories were to
become a regular feature and talk-
ing point for the remainder of the
course.
."... We've had several meet-
ings where people would just re-
count the experience of their
family. And, of course, everyone
would always say they remem-
ber where they were when this
or that happened. So it was a
very significant event; it im-
pacted us tremendously."
Nurse, who excelled on the
course, gaining a double major in
electrical engineering and opera-
tions research and was also
short-listed from a field of 150
for a place on the prestigious
Rhodes scholarship programme,
concurred with everything
Chichester said about the affect
the tragedy had on morale at the
Academy.
"It affected the entire regi-
ment. Being a military academy,
and my classmates being all
American citizens, their families
were definitely involved. Some of
them, their relatives were ship-
ping off to Iraq to fight... so it
definitely had a drastic effect on
the morale of the corps of ca-
dets," he said.
To their credit, however, the


"I think that the Guyana Defence Force is a great
place for an ambitious young man. I think that the
opportunity that was given to us was a great
opportunity. We got a chance to see the United
States... to see different parts of the world. I would
encourage any young man or any young woman, to
apply for the scholarship; to seek out what the Guyana
Defence Force has to offer you, and in return provide
your services to the Force too.'
Sub-Lieutenant Roger Nurse


Guard has. And then to add on
the extra missions, it was kind
of a strain. But overall, it was a
very significant impact that I re-
ally can't describe..."
Recalling the many chal-
lenges the two Guyanese fresh-


corpsmen were able, as Nurse
said, "to bounce back from the
situation," enough to respond to
* the needs of the community
within the immediate environs of
the Academy, and to perform ef-
fectively the duties with which


they were tasked.
"The cadet corps really got
involved in the community, we
sponsored several drill events
and invited the public to show
that the military was there for
the defence of the nation." he
said. "So that's how wse dealt
with the situation.. We used our
feelings... our anger.. whale er
thoughts we might ha.e to help
out the community Nurse said.

IT WAS-A

PRIVILEGE
Asked how it felt to be the
first two Guyanese to stud) at
the Academy, Nurse. who be-
came the first in the annals of the
institution's more than Il0-vjear
history to complete si\ super-
vised research projects instead
of the mandatory one, said.
"First of all, I should say it
was a privilege to be sent by the
GDF out there. I think the op-
portunity that the GDF gave to
me in sending me to the U.S.
Coast Guard Academy opened
my eyes to the opportunities
that lie in the Force," he said.
Chichester, who obviously
still can't believe his good for-
tune, said:
"To tell the truth, I never
imagined being where I am at the
moment. This opportunity is
just overwhelming... there's
nothing to complain about...
you're an officer in the Guyana
Defence Force... you had a free
four-year education in the
U.S.... it's something that was...
above my expectation. I'm just
very thankful... very fortunate
to have been given this oppor-
tuhity... it wasn't something I
was planning for... I'm humbled
by the experience."
Both young men agreed that
the training was rigorous but
well worth the experience.
Among the prerequisites
they had to meet to gain entry
into the institution was to par-
ticipate in a preliminary inter-
view. Based on the results, po-
tential candidates were short-
listed. At the time of applying,
they were both fresh out of high
school and considering their ca-
reer options. Chichester had al-
ways wanted to follow in his
brothers' footsteps and become
a.military man, but was pushed.
instead in the direction of me-
chanical engineering which he
had begun studying at the Uni-
versity of Guyana. Nurse, on the
other hand, had initially toyed
with the idea of becoming a pi-
lot as a youngster, but then
abandoned the idea entirely as he
grew older for the more exacting
field of information technology.
Of the 12 persons who at-
tended the preliminary interview,
just three were successful in pro-
gressing to the next stage, which
required that they write the SAT

(Standard Aptitude Test) exami-
nation. It was based on their
performance at this examination
that the two were deemed eligible
to attend the Academy.
Explaining the selection pro-
cess in greater detail, Colonel
Enoch Gaskin, who is the officet-
in-charge of operations and
training, said: "Once a country
is invited to sponsor students to
the Academy, we place an adver-
tisement in the media, inviting
applications. We then do an ini-


emy at Annapolis in Maryland,
and one to 'West Point' as the
New York-based Military Acad-
emy is better known. It would
be the first time in more than 30
years that Guyana is sending a
candidate to 'West Point'.
The relationship between
the GDF and the U.S. Armed
Forces, Gaskin said, goes back to
1965 when the former came into
being.
"The relationship is normal
for an sovereign country with


'Four years in the U.S. may sound like fun... but to
me it was the toughest four years of my life by far,
and there is nothing that can really build friendships
and bonds like being in a tough situation with
somebody else. Without really good friends you would
hate life and you would -not make it through the
Academy. I've gained a lot of really good friends from
that experience, and now it's tough missing them.'
Sub-Lieutenant Marion Chichester


tial interview, because there are
certain predetermined criteria for
admission. Part of those require-
ments is the SAT. They must
have completed that test."
Following the short-listing
process, he said, military offi-
cials from the U.S. come down
here to conduct a final interview
and a short assessment.
"Those results are then sent to
the Academy where the interna-
tional places are limited. They
are fixed in number, so the can-
didates from Guyana will be
competing against another two
to three hundred candidates from
all over the world for five or six
places. So, it's entirely out of
our hands. It is basically how the
candidates show... on their SAT
score and the interview that
they are selected," Gaskin said.
This year, he said, three per-
sons were successful in gaining
scholarships at U.S. military in-
stitutions. Two. one a woman,
are headed to the Naal Acad-


a defence force. Once a country
has diplomatic ties with any
other country, he said, "it is nor-
mal that all organs of State share
some level of contact and com-
munication," he added.
In the case of Guyana and
the U.S., he said, "our relation
is centred around support in-
terms of developing the capabil-
ity of the Guyana Defence
Force." He noted that over the
years, there has been some mea-
sure of reciprocity, whereby
members of the GDF are trained
at institutions of the U.S. Armed
Forces and vice versa.
"We have also seen special-
ists from the Armed Forces com-
ing to engage the GDF in spe-
cific areas of activities," Gaskin
said.
The U.S. Armed Forces, he
said, comprise several services,,
namely the Army, Navy, Air
Force, Marine Corps, National
Guard and the Coast Guard.
Though Guyana's engagement


with the U.S. military has mainly
been with the first and the latter
units, it has on occasion sent
people to the other academies,
'West Point' in particular. That'
was in the early 70s, Gaskin
said.
Asked about training and
what it was like during their ten-
ure at the Coast Guard Acad-
emy, Nurse, who elected to re-'
spond first, said while the focus
is primarily on academics, it's
not restricted to study alone,
since all cadets are required to
meet some very rigorous mili-
tary requirements which entail
assuming some level of respon-
sibility from time to time.
"The cadet regiment," he
said, "is divided into companies
and you're given different posi-
tions in the company. For ex-
ample, I was a division officer. I
was in charge of Information
Technology in my company."
Chichester, on the other
hand, was a department head
and in charge of morale for the
entire corps of cadets, which can
invariably number anywhere be-
tween 950 and 1 000. The corps
comprises eight companies, each
named alphabetically in Morse,
thus forming one regiment.
He also spoke about the
physical requirements of the
course and what that entailed.
"There are physical require-
ments that you have to meet to
attend the Academy which
you're expected to maintain
while you're at the Academy. So
each semester you're tested for
physical fitness to make sure
you're up to par. So... there's
academics... there's military...
and there's physical require-
ments the three elements of the
Academy."
Chichester, however, said
though his experiences are some-
what similar to his colleague's,
since they were in the same
cldss, it differed in some re-
spects as the Academy is so

structured that training tends to
vary from cadet to cadet.
"My first year was very
rigorous because you go through
a kind of a 'boot camp' atmo-
sphere for seven weeks. The re-
maining nine months is basically
given to indoctrination. You can't
look at your food... you can't
look around... so it's a very
tense atmosphere for that first
year... you're basically required
to entertain your upper-class ca-
dets that year. But at the end of
that year, you 'kinda' become an
'upperclassman' yourself... and
then, as you go up, you see an
increase in responsibilities. So,
the corps of cadets runs itself...
it's not run by officers... cadets
govern most of the aspects of
cadet life," he said.
Speaking of his role as Regi-
mental Morale Officer, to which
his colleague had earlier alluded,
Chichester said:
"It's probably the most chal-
lenging thing I've ever done in
my life so far. I was responsible
for all the morale and social ac-
tivities for all 1000 cadets in the
Academy. It was a tough job be-
cause the Academy is a very
stressful environment; cadets
tend to be cynical at times... be-
cause of so much pressure from
all angles. My job was to make
everyone happy... to plan what-
ever parties... talent shows...
outings....sporting events...
whatever was necessary."
The problem with such a
task is that while it gives one a*
sense of responsibility, it also
has its setbacks.
"If you mess up some-
thing, you [automatically] af-
fect 1 000 cadets. But what I
really liked about the Acad-
emy is not just that the aca-
demics (are) tough, but the
other responsibilities.., they
really teach you about leader-
ship. I had about 40 cadets di-

LAST week marked 13
years since this column
has been running
continuously. As an
anniversary presentation,
I will recapitulate some
major points made since
its first publication.
1. Dental caries (tooth de-
cay) and gum disease are the two
most common oral health prob-
lems in human.beings.
2. Tooth decay is caused by
acid producing bacteria which
are normally present in the
mouth and by sticking to the
teeth in a concentrated colony
with the help of a thin slimy
layer called dental plaque.
3. When an individual takes
foods with fermentable sugars
and some starches, the germs in
the plaque start to make acid
which produce cavities in the
tooth's enamel.
4. Whenever dental plaque
is allowed to accumulate, it may
harden to form calculus (tartar).
5. Calculus gradually pen-
etrates beneath the gum to cause


a - 4


a a -


a chronic condition called peri-
odontitis (gum disease) which
is characterized by bleeding
gums, bad breath, deep pockets
around the involved teeth with
eventual mobility (shaking).
6. A healthy mouth can be
assured by brushing each tooth
for at least one minute a day
with a fluoridated toothpaste.
flossing daily, eating a balanced
diet, avoiding sugary foods be-
tween meals and visiting the
dentist every three months.
7. Bad breath is mainly
caused by excessive concentra-
tion of bacteria in the mouth
which occurs in gum disease,
tooth decay and stagnated saliva
in cases of fever and 'morning
breath'.
8. The cure for bad breath
consists of extractions if any,
fillings if any, scaling and pol-
ishing if needed, followed by
the rules as stated in number six
above.
9. The treatment for
discoloured teeth depends on
whether the stain is external or
internal. External stains, such as
those derived from tobacco, are
removed by polishing with an'


The Dentist Advises
~ ~ ~ ~ a l*TOa^lis*^vJ!agg


abrasive while intrinsic
discolourations while in fact
pervade the very structure of
the tooth. may b'e eliminated by
bleaching or capping.
10. In these days of mod-
ern dentistry, there is no justi-
fication for a patient to be fear-
ful of dental, treatment as every
procedure is virtually painless.
Indeed, any existing inhibition
could never exculpate the con-
sequences of neglecting to visit
the dentist.
11. Nearly a dozen oral dis-
eases can-result in death. The
fatal situations usually occur
when bacteria and their poisons
emanate from infected roots
('stumps') and invade the brain
via the blood stream.
12. Cancer of the mouth due
to smoking is an'important
cause of death among adult men.
13. Oral manifestations fre-
quently represent the first signs
of AIDS. These signs include
white areas anywhere in -the
mouth, 'hairy' patches on the


tongue, red to purple spots on
the insides. of the cheek or on
the palate, and red, swollen and
painful orm. (acute gingivitis)
despite good oral hygien e&
14. The extraction of a
tooth should always be fol-
lowed soon (at least two weeks)
after by its artificial replacement
(dentures). If not, dental migra-
tion (movement to open or close
the gap), extrusion (lengthening
of the one opposite due to the
absence of contact) and bone re-
absorption would take place.
These circumstances make it-
difficult or impossible for the
patient to be fitted with ad-
equate dentures.
15. Whether as an indi-
vidual, a community or a na-
tion, it is definitely cheaper
and more effective to achieve
a good oral health status
through the principles of pre-
vention. In the final analysis,
oral health is based on the ef-
fective control of dental
plaque.

From centre
rectly under me, and another 40 under my authority... and I
was also responsible for every aspect of the cadet's career...
whether their grades are good... how they do militarily... some-
times how they're doing at home. And when they had ques-
tions, they'd come to me. So it's a great leadership training
background," Chichester acknowledged.
Asked about civilian life, both said while this was very limited,
they were allowed a certain amount of what is called "liberty", this
being the opportunity to go out every once-in-a-while and 'do the
town'. For a freshman, this was only on weekends, and in uniform.
But, as Nurse explained," "as you progress up the chain of com-
mand, you get more privileges and more liberty.' You get to wear
civilian clothes... and you can go out on Wednesday nights and stuff
like that."
Dinner-time was also another treat that everyone looked for-
ward to, since it not only allowed them more time in which to eat
than at other mealtimes, but to also savour a wide variety of foods,
from Mardi Gras to Chinese to Italian to Mexican depending on
the occasion that was being celebrated at the time. This was apart
from the regular fare which is served buffet style and can consist of
pizza... pasta... cheeses of all descriptions, dessert, soda, and just
about anything you can think of.
Said Chichester: "It's a huge buffet line... and you have basi-
cally two hours to just go in there and have your fill. I think the
food was really great... even though most of the American cadets...
being used to that kind of fare didn't share my opinion... but I
think the staff went out of their way to make it really special for
us."
Great food apart, the thing that means the most to him, how-
ever, is the lasting friendships and bonds that he was able to forge
in the four years at the Academy.
"Four years in the U.S. may sound like fun... but to me it was
the toughest four years of my life by far, and there is nothing that
can really build friendships and bonds like being in a tough situa-
tion with somebody else. Without really good friends you would
hate life and you would not make it through the Academy. I've
gained a lot of really good friends from that experience, and now
it's tough missing them."
His last semester was especially memorable for him. "I had a
chance to make cadets happy... being that the Academy is so tough,
it a kind of a cynical atmosphere for the most part. I would never
forget that last semester... it gave me the opportunity to plan events
and to see cadets be happy... get away from the academic and mili-
tary struggles and come out and play and have fun."
As to what advice they would give to young men and women
wanting to follow in their footsteps, Nurse said: "I think that
the Guyana Defence Force is a great place for an ambitious
young man. I think that the opportunity that was given to us
was a great opportunity. We got a chance to see the United
States... to see different parts of the world. I would encourage
any young man or any young woman, to apply for the scholar-
ship; to seek out what the Guyana Defence Force has to offer
you, and in return provide your services to the Force too."

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll look at What is assimilation? And
last week's review Experiment # 1 and # 2.

What is assimilation?

Human being (people) consists of all sorts of
things, but they can grow without eating other
Humans! Whatever food they eat is altered in
the body to make it ready for turning into bone,
blood and flesh. This conversation of food into
body material is called assimilation. Plants have
an even greater power of assimilation than ani-
mals, as all they need is water and some salts
from the soil, and carbon dioxide from the air!
Only a small part of the food which we eat is
built into our bodies. Most is used as fuel to
give us the energy we need for keeping warm and
moving about. The process by which energy is
obtained from food is called respiration.


Do living things respire?


Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to these columns. It is a good thing to
learn how to remember and how to improve re-
call of information. Knowledge of just a little psy-
chology can be very helpful to you. Something
with a special significance for you is easily re-
membered. What does not have significance is
forgotten even within the space of half an hour.
Keep good company!
'Bye.

IN LAST WEEK

Finding out more about Guyana
Up River/Down River
Pointers:
1. Up river is the direction going to the source of the
river.
2. Down river is the direction going towards the mouth
of the river or going towards the ocean.
3. The source of a river is the point at which it begins
its formation.

IN THIS WEEK

The Environment and Tourism
Today we'll take a short look at the benefits tourism
brings to our environment and the costs tourism im-


,.7


How can we find whether something is re-
spiring?

Experiment: look at some dried yeast from a
tin. The pellets don't look very alive, do they?
Mix a little of the yeast with water and sugar in
a test-tube, and leave it for fifteen minutes to
see what happens. Cork the tube, and let a de-
livery tube lead the gas produced by the yeast
into a tube of lime water. What happens? What
can you conclude? If a microscope is available
you can see that the yeast is growing and repro-
ducing.


Why must all living things reproduce?
Reproduction is essential because all living
creatures are mortal. A few kinds of tress may
live for hundreds, and in some cases, thousands
of years, but eventually
they all die. Man is one
of the longest-lived
animals, though some
tortoises live longer.
As old plants and ani-
mals die, they are re-
placed by the offspring
resulting from their re-


poses on it.
1. First of all tourism is about the movement of people
to destinations outside their normal place of work or
residence.

2. Tourism is also about-activities which are under-
taken during the traveler's stay away from home and
work.

3. Tourism is also about how the tourists' needs are
provided for until they go back to where they came
from.

4. A tourist therefore, can be described as a person
who stays on a visit for a minimum of 24 hours or a
maximum of one year in a country outside the one that
he/she lives or works.

4. There are benefits and costs of tourism to our en-
vironment and any other environment for that matter.


Tourism fosters conservation and preservation

5. Tourism causes people to take care of their envi-
ronment by conservation and preservation of its
natural, cultural and historical resources. (If you
should travel to other countries you would see to what
extreme measures other people go to preserve their

Answers to last week's exercise {Experi-
ment # 2}.
Is it possible to cut a piece from a living plant
or animal without killing it? It is possible to cut
a piece from a living plant or animal with out
killing it but it dependence on which part of
the animal you are cutting a piece from with-
out causing harming it.
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 Bryophyl-
lum (life plant), and place them on damp news-
paper, in a bowl. Do these parts of plants grow?
Y es they do grow.
Catch a gecko, and hold it by the tail. The tail
will probably beak off.
Is the tail still alive? Y es.
Can it grow into a new gecko? No.
Can the gecko grow a new tail? No.









Recently, surgeons have found a way of sew-
ing back on to the hand which has been cut off
in an accident, provided the operation can be car-
ried out immediately.

What does this show? This shows that living
things can grow back together if they are sewn
together immediately.

historical sites! They make sure these sites are well-
advertised and that there is real profit from their con-
tinuous labour. Tours and sight-seeing trips are
planned and offered to all who care.)

6. Tourism makes people environmentally conscious.
Communities are kept beautified and revitalized all year
round. PeQple begin to pay much attention to sanita-
tion, planting of flower gardens and patches, and re-
pairing and painting house roots (just to mention a few
areas).

7. The standard of operation in places for eating and
accommodation are upgraded also because there is real
value of the attraction to the tourism trade.


Some things happen to the environment when
tourists visit

8. The management of parks and other sight-seeing
places know the importance of keeping strict rules
about standards. They know that the quality of these
important natural and historical sites may soon be de-
graded if not properly used. They know that these
beautiful areas lose their standard at which they oper-
ate if care is not taken about how people use them.

9. Parks are constantly groomed and eating houses are
strictly inspected and graded. At times the botanical
and zoological gardens have to be closed for upgrad-
ing works. The tourism industry takes a beating when
touring persons do not pay attention to rules and no-
tices.
10. Litter, noise, and other forms of pollution may in-
crease with tourism.













The Passage

While there have always been dishonest people in
this imperfect world, the percentage of them
seems much higher now than it was ten or twenty
or thirty years ago.
The criterion apparently is no longer what is wrong
or right, but what you can do to get away with.
Only the other day I heard a twelve-year-old girl
describe how a boat with a motor had been lost in
a storm. The man who owned the boat was in-
sured; her father, who owned the outboard motor,
was not. "But it turned out all right," she said hap-
pily. "Daddy signed a bill of sale, pretending he had
sold the engine to his friend before the storm. So
the friend collected the insurance and gave some
of it to Daddy." The child'saw nothing in this. Why
should she? Her father, in her eyes, could do no
wrong.
Thus dishonesty breeds dishonesty. It is precisely
this- sort of vicious circle that our generation
seems at the moment to be entrapped. To break
out of it, we are going to have to convince ourselves
that dishonesty is not only a form of anarchy that
can destroy society but also a kind of subtle poi-
son that is extremely bad for us as individual hu-
man beings.
Some years ago, visiting friends in Jamaica, I no-
ticed an old map of that Caribbean island hanging
on the wall. Across one barren area in the moun-
tains ran a faint line of small script. It said: The
Land of Look-Behind.
"That map," my host explained, "goes back to the
days of slavery here. Whenever slaves escaped,
they'd make for the mountains. Now and then the
government would send troops to capture them.
So the runaways must have spent a lot of time
looking fearfully over their shoulders. And that's
where the name came from. Rather romantic, isn't
it?"
"To those poor souls, no!" I said. "They might have
escaped from the sugar plantations, but weren't
really free. They were still slaves to fear. They
were still wearing invisible chains."
Similarly, people who choose dishonesty go
through life dragging invisible chains. Even when
they stifle their conscience with rationalizations,
something in them is always looking back fearfully,
wondering if their wrongdoing is going to catch .up
with them. They are trapped in the Land of Look-
Behind.
As a minister counselling troubled individuals, I see
endless examples of ravages of suppressed guilt.
The Bible is right: the wages of sin is death a
kind of psychic death that robs the victim of his life-
forces in different ways. The casebooks of any
psychiatrist are full of examples of people who
deny their conscience but whose unconscious con-
science then demands that they punish them-
selves. Some demand the supreme penalty from
themselves and attempt suicide.

Questions
1. In what sense are the following words being
used figuratively in the passage? breeds, trapped,
stifle, wages, death .
2. Explain the following, phrase in a literal way:
Dragging invisible chains.
3. The writer says 'dishonesty breeds dishonesty
and calls this a vicious circle. What is a vicious
circle?
4. Put in your words: .
L justify dubious practices -
II. robs the victim of his life-force .
Il.r. ravages of suppressed guilt
5. Which of these statements are true and which
are false?
I. The writer says that the percentage
of dishonest people is higher nowadays.
It. The writer says that,the,criterion is no
longer what is wrong or right.
Ill. The writer says that our generation is


trapped in a vicious circle.
IV The writer says that there are many
successful people who are dishonest
6. What, according to the writer, causes many
people to need treatment by psychiatrists?

Mastering Writing
What have you mastered well in your writing so
far? Check the pieces of writing you have pro-
duced, come up with a fair view about your
progress, and then resolve to develop and use
more skills to improve reader-interest.
Do one of the following pieces of continuous writ-
ing. Make your own judgment in each case. Judge
according to how vividly you tell of your own sense
impressions and the details you put in.
1. Relate in writing something that you did that was*
against your conscience.
2. Make up and write a story entitled Lessons in
Falling from Grace.
3. Write a letter to the editor of a newspaper about
some matters affecting adolescents in your com-
munity.

Sentence
1. Requests and Commands
Refresh your knowledge and skills. Are the follow-
ing sentences complete? Can you find the sub-
ject in these sentences if they are complete?
Please flush the toilet.
Sing a little louder.
Run!

2. Analysis
Let us look at words like old, different, and long.
They are adjectives because they are used to de-
scribe something. They answer the question
"Which?"
But in the sentence, Sandra sat under the tree
that was on the green, the clause that was on
the green tells which tree. It describes the par-
ticular tree and modifies or limits our choice of
trees to think about. A clause like that does what
a single adjective does, so it is called an adjective
clause.
Now .see if you can pick out the Adjective
Clauses in the following sentences. The ef-
fort will help you recognize your adjective
clauses:
This is the boy that killed the large frog.
I spoke to the man who could not see.
Here is the result of your last test.
The ground before the sports hall belongs to
Guysuco.
Those children who provoked the old man will be
sorry.
The poet who wants to speak to me is my father's
friend.

Reported and Direct Speech
When you read and record what someone has said, you
can, if you wish, quote the actual words. This, of
course, is Direct Speech.

"I'm going to the land meeting next week," said the ten-
ant. .
You should note the punctuation, including the use of in-
verted commas. However you arrange the quotation,-
the rules of certain punctuation apply, and should be.
carefullyfollowed. .
"I'm going:to the, land meeting next week," the tenant
said..
She;said, "I'm going to. the land meeting next week.'"
If you wish, instead, to report what was said, not giving.
the actual words, then you will use Indiect or Reported
Spiech.
She said that she was going to the land meeting the fol-
lowing week.
Points to note:
a) Inverted commas are omitted."
b) "She said" is followed by "that", though this
word n, b, omitted,,,


c) Present Tense "am going" becomes Past Tense
"was going".
d) First Person "I" becomes Third Person "he",
unless the reporter is reporting his own words.
e) Future "next week" becomes "the following
week". ("Here" would become "there", "now" would
become "then", and so on.
More Examples:

1. a) "There are," the speaker claimed, "too many ac-
cidents on the city streets."
b) The speaker claimed that there were too many
accidents on the city streets.

2. a) "Do you realize that it often costs more money
than it is worth to transport goods from one place in the
hinterland where they itre' not needed to another than
where they are?" asked the speaker.
b) The speaker asked whether his audience real-
ized that it often cost more money than it was worth to
transport goods from one place in the hinterland where-
they were not needed to another where they were.

Note: Neither inverted commas nor question marks are
used in indirect speech.
Try These
Write the following sentences as either Reported or Di-
rect Speech.
1. Desiree said, "Frank, you always say the wrong
things to Jennifer. Will you never learn?"
2. Harry Simon said the materials were not working
well together, but that the next day they would be
changes in manufacturing.
3. "Up to the end of last week," said George, "the
crew was not up to expectations. That was why they
had three more day of practice this week."

Use of the Question Mark

The question mark is to be used on the following occa-
sions only:

1. Use a question mark after every direct ques-
tion: (Remember to distinguish a direct question from
an indirect question.)
Is it true that you are leaving the institution? (direct ques-
tion)
They asked whether it is true that you are leaving the
institution. (indirect question)
2. Use question marks after elliptical (incomplete)
questions in a series.

Where are your children? your parents'? your well-wish-
ers?
3. Use a question mark in parentheses to express
a doubt.

Shirley became a guest of the state on March 27 (?).
2002.
4. Place the question mark in side the quotation
marks or parentheses only if it is part of the
quoted or parenthetical material.

The student asked, "What is the name of the. new video
game that was bought for Grade 6?"
This man (her cousin?) is the key to all her problems.
What is meant by "the truth will out"?
What can you say in defence of'the latest scandal (the
city)'?,
Supply question. marks'where they are needed.'
1. The lawyer asked his client, "When did you return:
to you r matrimonial home?:., '

2. What is meant by the .term."rhetorical question"

3. "Do you really have .to leave now" she queried of
him.

4. Kate inquired, "When are you paying the telephone
bill, if it is not too personal a question'"

Growing. I


BORA
Bora is a popular crop
and is grown throughout
Guyana. The dark pods can
be used raw as in salads or
cooked in stews etc. The
plant can be grown in a vari-
ety of soils but does best on
fertile, well drained, loose
soils with high organic mat-
ter content.

Land Preparation
Clay soils should be
ploughed and harrowed to pro-
duce a good tilth. To enhance
drainage on these soils ridges
should be made about 60cm
apart. Sandy soils should be
raked and rows made 60cm
apart.

Planting
A seed rate of 10 15 kg/
ha should be used. Seeds should
be inoculated with the Rhizo-
bium bacteria before planting,
especially if bora is produced on
the soil for the first time. Inocu-
lation helps the plant to utilise
atmospheric Nitrogen from the
air and reduces the amount of
nitrogenous fertilisers necessary.
To apply inoculum, first
dampen the seeds with water,
mix thoroughly with the inocu-
lum using approximately 14
grams inoculum to 1 kg of seeds.
On clay soils plant on the


ridges. Use about two seeds for
each hole 30 cm apart and 2.5
cm deep. Or, use raised beds 90
cm wide and rows 60 cm apart.
On sandy soils sow 2 seed per
hole 30 cm apart and 60 cm be-
tween rows.

Staking
Plants should be staked to
enable them to make maximum
use of the sunlight: There is no
hard and fast method for stak-
ing and the method most suited
to the farmer could be adopted.

Fertilizer application
It is desirable to have the
soil tested before applying fer-
tilizers. A soil test will inform
you about the nutrient status of
your soil and will help you to
use fertilizers wisely. However,
where soil test data are not avail-
able the following can be used.

Clay soil
Limestone broadcast
approximately 3t/ha evenly
over the soil surface and
work it into the soil to a
depth of 15 cm. This should
be repeated every 3 years or
alternately, apply about 100
gram mixed into the soil at
each planting hole. All the
limestone should be applied
at least 4 weeks before plant-
ing.


About 10-14 days after
planting apply

Urea 2.5 kg/ha if seeds are
inoculated
Triple Super Phosphate
100kg/ha
Muriate of Potash
100kg/ha

At flowering apply
Urea 15 kg/ha if seeds are
inoculated
25 kg/ha if seeds are not in-
oculated

On sandy soils apply
limestone at rate of 1.5 t/ha
annually broadcast over the
soil surface and work it into
the -soil to a depth of approxi-
mately 15 cm or, alterna-
tively, apply about 100 gram
mixed into the soil at each
planting hole. All the lime-
stone should be applied at

Syeada Manbodh


From centre


example of a dog which she
rescued earlier this year,
Syeada says that as a result
of the animal not being
spayed, it bore too many off-
spring, producing two litters
per year. This lead to many
health and other problems:
the dog's breasts were left
sagging and hanging almost
to the ground from suckling
her young ones; and, the
owners abandoning the plen-
tiful litters at the sides of
nearby roadways.
In fact, it was the discovery
of a few puppies from one of
those litters that led the animal
missionary to the older dog. She
says she had been driving along
a street in Georgetown when
she noticed the newborn pup-
pies struggling aimlessly along
the roadside, some venturing
unknowingly into the path of
oncoming traffic.
Already equipped with her
sling and animal box in her car,
Syeada was ready to come to
the rescue. She pulled over to
the corner of the road and got
dressed for the occasion.
Donning her gloves, she'
carefully put the little creatures
into the box and hurried over to
the GSPCA clinic. Time is pre-
cious in Syeadi's line of work
as every extra minute the animal
spends without treatment less-
ens its chances for survival.
When the puppies got to
the clinic, it was determined
that'they were in good condi-
tion.
After several weeks of be-
ing bottle-fed and monitored,
the pups were declared healthy
and the final step was put into
motion. The GSPCA with
Syeada's profound help of
course would seek a.suitable,
individual'or family to adopt,


the adorable pets.
Many disease-plagued ani-
mals including the beloved
dogs and cats are also fortu-
nate enough to be rescued by
Syeada from right in the yards
and houses they call home.
"Since they are not dew-
ormed and vaccinated and not
cared for properly so they catch
infections quite easily," Syeada
explained. As proof of her
claims, she presented an album
of pictures of dogs with barely
any hair clinging to their skin,
seemingly hanging unto life by
a thread.
These too are taken to
the clinic yes, in Syeada's
car and treated or in very
dire circumstances, hu-
manely put down. Along with
these incidences of disease,
there are also cases where
owners leave their pets at
home. alone when they are
away for long periods..
Some of these starve to
death while others wander in
search of food and are eventu-
ally killed either from eating poi-
* sonous foods or by venturing
unto roadways and getting
caught in traffic.
In addition to these inci-
dents of what some might term
neglect and what Syeada
terms abuse there are others
of outright cruelty being meted
out to animals -all across
Guyana, she says.
Also documented in her al-
bum are pictures of dogs with
gaping knife wounds, huge scald
marks and even missing limbs.
There are numerous pictures Of
horses without horseshoes be-
ing forced to pull carts'.
Cautiously gauging her an-
ger, Syeada complains that some
operators of horse-drawn carts
show no consideration for the
poor animals and she expressed
her deep regret that the laws in


this country are apparently not
sufficient to see the perpetrators
brought to justice.
With all of the passion for
animal care she exerts, it is not
surprising that her two beloved
dogs Panda and Buddy live
in an unusually elaborate dog
house. The roof is built so as to
allow clean air to efficiently cir-
culate and prevent the safe ha-
ven from becoming overheated.
She hired a local artist to paint
the outside of the pen in jungle
themes.
For animals that are not so
lucky, however, she is adamant
that the GSPCA is their only
option for a comfortable life; or,
as the case sometimes is, the
way out of an unbearably cruel
one. She says that although it
is one small organisation with
few volunteers and only one
vehicle (a motorcycle), ev-
ery effort is made to en-
sure that the maximum
amount of work is done, par-
ticularly since there is only one
branch.
Syeada says that though
the society usually hosts minor
fundraising events, there are not
enough resources available for
the work of the organisation to
be expanded.
"In order for us to be able
to provide such services on a
regular basis, there are so many
things that we need," she
emphasises.
Donations of milk, rice,
bowls, mops, money and tow-
els are welcome at the GSPCA
clinic and so are all animals. The
clinic is open to the public,
Monday to Saturday. Syeada
encourages anyone wishing to
part with their animal to do so
in the right way.
"Instead of abandoning,
straying or. even hurting
them, bring yoer nlmnals to.
the shelter."

ing the dry season and damage
can occur from the seedling
stage right through to harvest-
ing.
Control do not control
when population is low since
yields will not be affected. Use
a recommended systemic insec-
ticide when attack is severe.
Been Beetle Cerotoma
arcuata, Diabrotica spp.
The beetle eat the leaves
causing shot holes and may also'
transmit viruses. This feeding
may occur throughout the life
of the crop, but is more damag-
ing through the crop establish-
ment period.
Control use any contact
insecticide with some residual
properties to give effective con-
trol.
Low infestation does not re-
quire chemical control, but if
bean mosaic virus appear in the
field then chemical control
should be done and the disease
plants uprooted and burnt.
Pod Borer Maruca
testulalis
Young caterpillars feed on
the developing seed but as they
grow they feed freely inside the
pods. The developing caterpil-
lars may leave the original pod
and penetrate other pods before
reaching maturity. Damage pods
my shrivel and cannot be mar-
keted. Viable seeds will not be
produced.
Control Since this insect
damages the pod (used for hu-
man consumption) then care
must be taken in selecting an in-
secticide for its control. Only
spray if at the time of harvest-
ing there is no pesticide residue.
Use a recommended insecticide.
Crickets Gryllotalpa spp.
At nights crickets come to
the soil surface and cut stems of
seedlings and take them down
into their nest. Cut seedlings
may be left on the soil surface
for a day or two to wilt before
it is taken into the nest.
CONTROL
Cultural remove all plant
debris. The area where veg-
etables re grown should be kept
free of weeds and all crop resi-
due should be removed and
burnt. Deep plough soil and de-
stroy large clods.

Feeding the Elderly Dog

IN TVA of 19/06/2005, we
touched on the issues of diet,
but only within the confines
of the discussion on constipa-
tion in the elderly dog. We
must now have a look at some
other aspects of nutrition of
the older dog.
Actually, the scientific lit-
erature on the nutritional re-
quirements of the elderly dog
seems not to be copious, pos-
sibly for the reason given below
in the fifth paragraph. The
Merck Veterinary Mafiual (8th
Edition), which is the "bible"
for veterinarians, has categori-
cally documented that it has not
been found from available pub-
lications that elderly dogs have
greatly different nutritional re-
quirements from, say, middle-
aged dogs. Science notwithstand-
ing, I would think that.logically,
(and even common sense would
so dictate) the physical changes
in an old animal's bodN \ would
lead to special need. t,_ compen-
.;ate for the altered physiology.
Geriatric dogs iand cats
should be monitored in a pre-
\entatie health programme
that includes periodic asess-
ment of their bod:, \eight and
condition For e\ample. one
ma.y need to introduce a special
food ulth %arn ing fat and fibre
content i increased or decreasedI
in order to maintain optimal
bod %eight and condition
Adso I had mentioned in recent
T~A columns that there is a lot of
organ chluige going on m the eld-
erl, dog i not lastly chronic, degen-
eratice organ disease and malfunc-
tioni., so the earber ou detect the
s\mpionis that reflect non-health.
the earlier .our .et can make the
correct diagnosis arid therefore
place the animal under a more ef-
feci.e numinonal manaunement.
Ha, ing said all ot the aboA e.


I should mention that dog food
manufacturers do have laborato-
ries and their scientists carry out
extensive research that benefits
. not only old dogs and cats but
also puppies, and young and
middle-aged adults. I suppose,
because of the competition that
exists among the major pet food
producers, the scientists are re-
luctant to publish their serious
scientific base data. However,
the end result of their research
is to be found in the tins or bags
of pet foods on the supermar-
ket shelves.
Many of these pet food
manufacturing companies will,
in fact, have a special diet
preparation for old dogs and
cats. However; it will be your
vet, knowing the health status
and the specific organ pathol-
ogy of your elderly pet, who
will be able to advise on the
functional and special diet for
your pet.
Since I am on this'theme of


pet foods, perhaps I should
make some comments on these
products. (If I don't do it now,
I don't know when and where I
will be able to insert these
thoughts).
There-was a time when pet
lovers/careers in Guyana used to
feed their animals "Burgerbits".
(It seems everyone buying
commercial pet foods know that
brand). Then such an item could
not be imported saving some
foreign exchange, I'm sure.
Nowadays, every good super-
market has a section with a
choice of pet foods not only in
terms of brands, but also in
terms of the consistency of the
food soft (semi moist) or hard
(dry).
Next week, we will spend
sometime explaining the differ-
ent types of food and how they
could/should be used relative to
your elderly pet.
Before I leave you to con-
tinue enjoying your long week-


"Parche"' and "Selo" having a discussion? This is an
interesting picture. By right. Parche' should be thinking only
about Selo as a food item. Yet these two live quite happily
together in the home of Mark and Tina King.


end, allow me to share with you
some figures on pet food prod-
ucts although they do not di-
rectly have any bearing on ca-
nine geriatrics. In the USA in
1995, 3.5 and 2.1 billion dollars
were spent on commercial dog
and cat foods respectively.
You imagine what that total
must be like today, with a
larger number of affluent
people and more pet food
manufacturers getting into pro-
duction and marketing.
You may now go on enjoy-
ing your Sunday and
CARICOM Monday.


THE VET




Please implement disease preventative measures (vaccinations,
routine dewormings, monthly anti-Heartworm medication, etc)
and adopt-a-pet from the GSPCA's Animal Clinic and Shelter
at Robb Street and Orange Walk, if you have the wherewithal
to care well for the animals. Do not stray your unwanted pets,
take them to the GSPCA Clinic and Shelter instead. Also, find
out more about the Society's free spay and neutering
programme by calling 226-4237.
