After week-lona visit here
British MPs to lobby
for Guyana on sugar
By Linda Rutherford
THERE MAY yet be hope for
the survival of the belea-
guered sugar industry follow-
ing a week-long visit here by
five high-ranking British par-
liamentarians who have
pledged to vigorously lobby
the Blair administration to at
least get the European Union
to lower its proposed sugar
"My other British MP col-
leagues were very impressed
with what they saw, and now
have a better understanding of
the sugar question. I think
we're all now agreed to go back
to British Parliament and lobby
for Guyana on the sugar ques-
tion, so that at the very least,
the price cut can come in over a
longer period," Labour Member
of Parliament Diane Abbott told
the Sunday Chronicle late Fri-
day evening. The team de-
Asked whether there was
anything else they can do, be-
sides lobbying their government,
to help swing the pendulum in
Guyana's favour, she replied:
"As MPs, all we can do is
try and put pressure on our
Ministers. And that's what we
will be doing."
As to what they, in turn,
can do, her reply was:
"Britain is a key player in the
EU... and is in a very good po-
sition to get the rest of Europe
to change its mind, if they so
want to." She also noted, rather
pointedly, that the EU Trade
Commissioner, Mr. Peter
Mandelson, was, in fact, British.

House of Assembly, Mr. Ralph

members, Messrs Kevin price cut is to be put into effect.'
Barron, Tom Mann and Kevan ,, .,. .., ,
Jones, and the lone Tory mem-
ber, Mr. James Paice.
As Chair of a group of MPs
which has a specific interest in
the affairs of the Caribbean,
Abbott, who distinguished her-
self in British politics by being
/the first Black woman to be
elected to Parliament, had made
it clear even before her arrival
that her main concern was.in see-
ing how the proposed price cuts
would affect the local sugar in-
dustry and how the country was
recovering from the unprec-
edented floods of mid-February.
Their decision to plead
Guyana's case back home, she
said, was informed by the rather
instructive talks they've had
with the President and key gov-
ernment ministers, as well as
with officials of the Guyana
Sugar Corporation (Guysuco),
who took them on a tour of the
East Demerara Estates, where
they were able to see, first-hand,
some of the damages caused by
the floods and the efforts being
made to replant stock.
They were also given cop-
ies of a presentation stating the
company's plans, for the future
of the industry, among these the
diversification into energy pro-
duction and the refinery of sugar
in the hope of capturing the
CARICOM market, and the ef-
fect a cut in the price for sugar
will have on its survival.
"But they explained to us,"
she said, "that they would need
time to do all this and that
...while they obviously don't
want to see a cut in the sugar
price at all... if there has to be
a cut, they think it should be
smaller and should be phased in
over a longer time."
Asked exactly how much
time they were requesting, she
said that while she had no idea,
she got the distinct impression
that "ideally they'd like a few
more years in order to develop
the plans they have for diversi-
She made the point that
while she had always been
aware of the importance of
sugar to Guyana's economy, she
was not so sure that her other
"I think that having come
here and seen it for themselves,
they are now in a better posi-
tion to understand what the
country is up against if the price
cut is to be put into effect."
On the matter of how the
country was coping in the wake
of the floods, Abbott, who is a
journalist by profession, said
that though it didn't get the in-
ternational coverage it deserved
because of Hurricane Ivan and
the Asian tsunami: "I was im-
pressed that although at the time
there was some concern about
typhoid and other water-borne
diseases, that in fact the loss of
life hadn't been as great as had
She said, too, that having
spoken with Health Minister,
Dr. Leslie Ramsarmny so as to
ascertain what was being done
to deal with the health ques-

tions, "1 think that Guyana did

can still see some of the flood
She said that having come
and seen for herself what is
happening in terms of the re-
covery process, she is now in a
better position to see what fur-
ther help can be rendered by the
As for her impression of the
country outside of the two ma-
jor issues at reference, Abbott
said though she hadn't been able
to see much of it as the rest of
her colleagues have, because of
other pressing matters she had
to attend to: "I think Guyana is
a kind of undiscovered jewel. I
found it absolutely fascinating."
The reason for her elation,
she said, is that while she regu-
larly goes to Jamaica, where her
parents are from, and has been
on occasion to Barbados and St
Kitts, she had never before had
the opportunity of coming to
"I just thought that seeing
that I'd been to the other is-
lands, I want to see Guyana for
myself," she said. One of the
highpoints of her visit, she said,
was being able to catch up over
lunch with some old friends she
knew from back in London.
She is, however, hoping
to come back, "pretty soon,"
and see something of the

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE August 7, 2005
THE WEEK that ended yesterday witnessed
separate significant events involving two of this
country's very dominant i: different ways national
political personalities the late PresidentForbes
Burnham and ex-President Janet Jagan.
Yesterday marked Ithe 20tn ariniversary,of the death
of Burnham, founder-leader of the People's 'National
Congress (PNC), Guyana's first post-independence
Prime Minister and:later Executive President, .who held'
power, consecutively"for,21: years.
It was also the week.vwhen Janet Jagan, :now 85,
,again won a rousing vote of confidence of the ruling
People's Progressive Party;'(PPP), the significance of
which should not be minimised. ,
In any serious assessment of .wuurnham's
unprecedented dominationidf state politics, guided at one
crucial stage by the doctrine of "party paramountcy", two
factors would be difficult to avoid: ', .
The politics of rigged elections that, he had
transformed into a fine art; and his progressive foreign
policy that was to provide him with a leadership role in
the once influential Non-Aligned Movement.
Enough is known about the politics of electoral
rigging under his rule to warrant any further comment at
this time as the PNC now with a 'reform' "wing marks,
with a range of activities this week, the 20th anniversary
ofiBurnham's passing on August 6, 1985.
So far as his politics in,regional and international
affairs were concerned, Burnham was.fortunate in having
the support of an opposition the People's Progressive
Party under Cheddi Jagan's leadership that was at all
times ideologically left of .the PNC and, with' no real
difficulties in backing his foreign'policy objectives. 'It was
also useful support for the nationalisatibn'. f the vital
bauxite and sugar industries. .
As one of the five primary architects to make a reality
of the Caribbean Community -'the others being Michael
Manley, Eric Williams, Errol 'Barrow and Vere Bird -
Burnham and Manley were to also emerge as leading
spokesmen in the international arena for:the radical
economic, cultural and political shifts in the Caribbean.
He was just 62 years old when he died from heart
problems. It was the way that death took away, '12 years
later, his former 'comrade' and arch political foe, Cheddi
Jagan while in office, as President in 1997. .
While they were comrades of that "golden agd" in;the
history of a united PPP, the powerful General Secretary
of the party was Janet Jagan.
So often the victim of some of the. most mean,
atrocious allegations, racial and cultural slurs from her
opponents, she is a shining reminder, at 85, of a mercurial
politician who continues to keep hope alive for a "better
Guyana" which she made her home 62 years ago.
Last weekend, the delegates of the party she helped
to form 65 years ago, saluted her in grand style in once
again giving her a tremendous vote of confidence,
second only to that cast for President Bharrat Jagdeo.
Traditionally, except for the Berbice Congress, when she
was quite ill, Janet Jagan has been elected second only
to the party's leader, her husband.
S When she assumed the presidency of Guyana,,she
headed the list;of top vote getters,, and subsequently
secondonly toJagdeo as President.; It is to be'expected,'
given his stature in the party and performances' asHead
of State that Jagdeo would have again emerged as tope
vote-winner. BPy that development he would also.'have,
reinforced his position as the party's presidential cahdj-
SAlthough she no longer holds any high profile office
in the party, and' having long ago quil, government arid
parliament, the indefatigable Janet, Jahan retains:that vi-
tal vote of confidence wherever a PPP congress takes
place' and shows that willingness tb;rermain forias',long.
as physically possible.
SIn the changing face of Guyanese politics ofttheso-.
called "titans" starting from Cheddi Jagan and Forbes
Burnham Janet Jagan continues to 'hold her own spe-
cial' place in her party and the national community.

KWAYANA'S 'MORNING AFTER'
Controversial, timely examination of a "criminal political
movement" and the challenges facing Guyana shouldalsoprinted
,~h shud s?epnrntedft--;
AFTER reading his recently-
released 'The Morning
After', my long held
admiration for Eusi Kwayana
has deepened, despite
our occasional, healthy
It has been his habit over
the years of making others,
including friends, political
colleagues and opponents,
.uncomfortable by what he
writes or positions he adopts.
Not that he deliberately sets
out to cause personal or even
group discomfort or anger. It is
simply consistent with his
character, telling it as he believes
it to be, in his examinations of
sensitive social and political
issues. His commitment to "the
politics of truth" does not
easily win him applause.
Yet, those really familiar
with Kwayana, now 80, and his
ideas, should also know that,
along with Cheddi and Janet
Jagan, and Forbes Burnham all
former "comrades" at different
periods this once
heralded "sage of Buxton"
commands a special place in the
turbulent social and political
history of Guyana.
It is in pursuit of recording
"the truth", as he understands
it, about an unprecedented
post-independence explosion of
criminality with a political
agenda, that rocked Georgetown
and East Coast villages in 2002,
and with his native Buxton
at the epicentre of it all, that
largely inspired his writing
of 'The Morning After'.
Kwayana's "small book",
as he has described the 128-
page publication, released in
Guyana in June to coincide with
commemoration anniversary of
the life and times of the
murdered Walter Rodney, offers
much more than a searing
analysis-ef-a "Criminal political

The "war propaganda" otf
that dark period, the roles of
Sif-styled "Talibans" and
"freedom fighters", an infamous
counter phantom death squad;
the persistent exploitation of
race politics, naked political
opportunism and corruption, as
well as initiatives for solutions,
across ethnic and political
boundaries, to herald the dawn
of a new political culture in
governance, are all sketched in
what is a valuable contribution
to politics and governance in
It is a contribution that is

sections, and would hardly be

They knew how and when
to cooperate in the national
interest while revealing
different ideological and cultural
perspectives and approaches.
Like Jagan,' Kwayana is one
of the more misunderstood and
misrepresented politicians of
Guyana. Jagan is no longer with
us. But it is quite intriguing to
find Kwayana, in the course of
rejecting some of Gibsoin'
theories in appendix two of his
'The Morning After', signalling
this public message:
"Old as I am, I am willing
to pool my efforts with people
who "want to reform the

I am not in search of government

problems, mainly economic, io
one in authority has asked me
what measures I think are
workable? At least we used to
be able to 'pick sense from
One of the very sad things,
tragic in some ways, about
political hustlings, cultural
slander and rumour-mongering
in Guyana was the
forced uprooting of Kwayana
from the village where he grew
up and lived until the gunmen
and their mentors came to
destroy Buxton as a village of
civilisationn and heritage".
Today he lives with his family
in the USA, his heart in Guyana.
In an eloquent forward to
'The Morning After', the
Jamaica-born scholar, disciple of
Walter Rodney and author of
'Reclaiming Zimbabwe', Horace
Campbell, makes his own
observation why Buxton was
chosen "as the site of racialised
and militarised politics".
The choice of that East
Coast Demerara village, said
Campbell, "is not accidental
since this was the space from
which Eusi Kwayana had
laboured for over half a century
to provide an alternative vision
of a society based on respect,
love and human dignity....
"The anguish of Kwayana
over he violation ofihe socPie the
violation of the space and the
political retrogression, is evident
from the pages of this pamphlet..."
In his penetrating
examination of the "criminal
political movemn" 'at was
.'iKed with the infamous
five armed escaped prisoners,
and the numerous acts of
and rape, Kwayana also points
to the unfinished task of
understanding "the causes and
effect 'of the violencee'" ol that
KISSOON AND HINDS
Before Kwayana's very
focused approach to the origin
and implication of the "criminal
political movement", the grim,
bizarre developments in Buxton
and other East Coast villages,
had led the political scientist
and social commentator,
Frederick Kissoon, to write a
series of articles, first in the

fellow Buxtonian, who teaches
African Diasporan Studies at
Arizona State University, had

launched at the same time of
Hinds' collection of news
articles and essays in 'Race and
Political Discourse in Guyana
(A Conversation with African
Guyanese in the presence and
hearing of Indian Guyanese)'.
His interventions in the local
media have often been
controversial, but there is no
questioning of the yearning
Hinds also shares with his
mentor, Kwayana, for racial
unity and mutual respect.
Kwayana tells us in his
introduction to Hinds' "small
book", that the author "is in the
forefront of the movement for
ethnic reconciliation on the basis
of justice and access to economic

GREATER THAN CRIME
JAMAICANS, at home and of
the diaspora, are this
weekend celebrating their
country's 43rd independence
anniversary, conscious of
significant political changes
that could take place in a
None perhaps more
significant than the expected
retirement of Prime Minister
P.J. Patterson and its
implications for the 2007
general election for both the
governing People's National
Party (PNP) and the opposition
Jamaica Labour Party (JLP).
This freedom anniversary
celebration is a moment in
Caribbean history shared by the
diverse peoples of our region..
For them, Jamaica, for all its
woes particularly those
resulting from the horrors of
criminality holds a special
Not only as the first
independent nation of the
Caribbean Community. It is one
for which Jamaica continues to
offer a respected leadership role,
despite ongoing self-flagellation
on its quality of governance.
Thankfully, for all the
damages their callousness has
inflicted on the social and
economic fabric, on the national
psyche, and its image abroad as
a leading "murder capital" of the
Western Hemisphere, the
criminals have failed to diminish
the richness of Jamaica's
cultural life that goes beyond
the name greatly popularised
for it as "reggae country" by
national icon Bob Marley.
The celebrities at last
night's "independence gala" for
the Prime Minister's annual

creativity there is really to
enjoy and to avoid being
overwhelmed by the natural and
man-made disasters since they
last gathered for such a national
At 70, and Jamaica's longest
serving Prime Minister,
Patterson must clear the decks,

framework of his 68-year-old

of the Caribbean for the
election of his successor.
Just as happened when an
ailing Michael Manley chose to
retire as PNP leader and Prime
Minister, and Patterson was
elected leader and subsequently
appointed Prime Minister in
The leadership election is
now set to happen at the party's
forthcoming convention next
month with a trio of perceived
primary contenders Peter
Phillips, Minister of National
Security; Omar Davies,
Minister of Finance and
Development; and Portia
Simpson-Miller, Minister of
Local Government, Community
Development and Sports.
Having ruled out any
question of a snap general
election since November last
year, amid the then very bruising
leadership squabbles within the
JLP, of which Bruce Golding is
now the new leader, Patterson
would know that he must give
his successor at least one clear

poll, if not some 14 months
away from Jamaica's 44th

statesman" among the leaders of

Summit, if not earlier at the 17th

Community in February 2006
A year from now, the two
traditional contenders for
power, PNP and JLP, will be
much more focused on general

speculate on what decisive
influence either the retired ex-
JLP boss, Eddie Seaga, or the
retired Patterson could offer to
make the difference for-victory
of their respective parties.
Contrary to a promise,
perhaps more a hope, from
Patterson in September 2003,
that Jamaica would shed its
monarchical system of
government for the status of a
constitutional republic with a
non-executive President by
March 2005, did not materialise.
Put that down to the ritual
political strife between the PNP
and JLP on constitutional changes,
with the latter seemingly as wedded
to maintaining the monarchical
status quo for as long as it remains
out of power. This also relates to
retaining access to the Judicial
Committee of the Privy Council as
Jamaica's final appellate court,
instead of the Caribbean Court of
At least the two parties had
made it possible, by consensus,
prior to the October 2002
general election, at which the
PNP was returned to power
with a 34-26 parliamentary
majority, for parliamentarians
and key state officials to pledge
"allegiance to Jamaica", instead
of the traditional "oath to the
Queen", as has been the custom
prior to and since Independence.
CCJ AND MEDIA
It is this recurring political
controversy and refusal to
cooperate that has led to the
PNP administration's failure to
carry forward its pledge to have
the Privy Council replaced by
the CCJ as Jamaica's court of

Portuguese argued that the
Africans were poor at business
and that they were jealous of
The Portuguese position
does not explain several issues.
We will address one here. If the
Africans were such poor
businessmen/women how was it
that they were able to
accumulate large sums of money
to purchase land immediately
after slavery was abolished?
Probably, by examining the
nature of the colonial enterprise
in which both groups operated,
we could: arrive at a more
balanced picture. The
recognized that the emerging
society would need a local
commercial class to meet the
growing consumption needs.
They encouraged/assisted the
Portuguese with credit facilities
and other types of help that
were denied the Africans. Thus
two racially differentiated
groups received different
treatment when they met in
competition for the same thing.
The system discriminated in
favour of the Portuguese. One
possible explanation is that the
Portuguese were more credit-
worthy [see Ravi Dev 1998:
124] implying that the Africans
were less credit worthy. This
argument would not hold water
- because at thisstage in Guiana's..
history there is no evidence to
support it. The Africans in their
first major economic engagement
paid cash for the lands they
purchased and they incurred no
bad debts with the European
wholesale merchants with
whom they did business on a
Perhaps, for enlightenment,
we need to examine two primary
assumptions on which the
plantation system was
premised. The first assumption
we will examine is premised on
the nature of the mercantile
capitalist system. The
Portuguese had a reliable
existing international business
network: that made their
enterprise feasible. It is these
arrangements that made their
business propositions attractive
to those who administered the
affairs in' 19th Century Giuana.
Had those Portuguese who
entered business been poor and
without, the network and
resources then perhaps their
entrepreneuiial outreach would
have les$ encouraged and less
The second assumption is
based on the ideology that
claimed white superiority and
non-white inferiority. The
Portuguese was of European/
white stock thus they were by
definition better than the
Africans. It would be
remembered that during this
period in Europe scientists and
scholars were producing
pseudoscientific evidence to
support the claim of white
superiority. It was this
ideology that enabled the
Europeans to claim that they
discovered the New World
although there were people
living there long before they
arrived. It was this ideology
that empowered them to claim
these lands apd thereby
disinheriting the original
inhabitants even to the point of
genocide. It was this ideology
that justified slavery and
indentureship. The intention
here is not to undervalue the
entrepreneurial capability of the
Portuguese but to contextualise
their success and the less

favourable fortune of the
Africans in the asymmetrical
opportunity structure of the
society. The Africans, at this
stage in Guiana's history, did not
have the international business
structure to support their
commercial ambitions. Further,
the colour line was in full
operation. The end of slavery
did not automatically give the
African justice and equality.
This state of affairs
contributed to a series of riots.
The white plantocracy and
white administrative classes
were less visible so the Africans
displayed much anger at the
Portuguese who became a
scapegoat population. Robert
Moore  and Brian Moore
 gave graphic accounts of
these. Between 3,000 and 4,000
Africans looted Portuguese
shops in New Amsterdam in
1847. The Angel Gabriel riots
of 1856 saw Africans ransacking
Portuguese shops and homes in
Georgetown, other parts of
Demerara and also in Essequibo.
The Portuguese received
compensation to the tune of
$267,204 out of a total claim of
In 1889, Portuguese
businesses were looted in what
became known as the Cent
Bread Riots. Another
motivation for the 1889 riots
could be found in the manner in
which the Portuguese were
allowed to manipulate the
justice system. The Portuguese
were able to obtain a reprieve
for one of their members from
the death sentence for
murdering his Mulatto
common-law wife. On the other
hand, a "coloured man" was
hanged for killing his Portuguese
wife. The Africans and
Mulattoes were angry at the
double standard and the
discriminatory manner in which
the legal system operated. The
same crime (wife murder) yet
the outcome was different for
different races [Daly 1974:
classified the riots as "a strife
of races" but the Colonial Office
declared that they were caused
by the African jealousy of the
Portuguese success in business.
Perhaps both conclusions are
defensible and maybe the truth
would include a creative blend
of the two.
The 1856 riots called forth
a complex racialised response.
In Essequibo, the indentured
Indians, who began to arrive in
1838, and who by now were
seen as the dominant plantation
labour force [see below], were
recruited by the plantocracy to
defend the property of the
Portuguese. The authorities did
not utilise the African rank and
file of the local constabulary
because they were seen as
suspect and so they could not
be trusted to protect Portuguese
property against the assault of
the rioters who were also
Lesp than two decades after
their. arrival the Indians were
given a' role outside of their
contractual obligations. They
were now indentured labourers
whoi were policing Africans,
protecting Portuguese property
and defending the interest of the
plaltpcracy. Like the
Amerindians before them, the
Indians were serving the
purpose of their oppressors.
Previously, the Indians and
Africans were adversaries in the
economic domain because they
competed with each other in the
labour market. By 1856
however, the racial conflicts
between these two groups took
on a new dimension. As we have
seen, they were pitted against
each other in open physical
It was noted above that
there was a status distinction
between the Madeirans and
other Europeans (mainly
British). This was in part
informed by. the original
indentured role of the former.
It was also possible that this
distinction contained within
it the idea that they were not
pure whites. Another area of
differentiation was with the
way they worshipped. The
British were, in the main,
Anglicans while the
Portuguese were Catholics.
Their Catholicism was
exuberant in nature, full of
earthy expressions and not as
conservative as the
Anglicanism practised by the
British. "What is done in
Madeira" criticised Fr.
Walker "is far from
perfection in many ways"
[Menezes 1986: 15]. However,
these differences never took

NY Guyanese prefer metal detectors
By Bina Mahabir
NEW YORK Like all New
Yorkers, Guyanese in the
New York Tri-State region
and in New Jersey are sub-
jected to random baggage
searches at subway and bus
stations as part of the beefed
up security throughout the
mass transit system. The up-
graded security is in direct
response to two sets of bomb-
ings in London earlier last
month. Since the London
bomb blasts, New York City
has been on edge.
At least 56 people were
killed and a number of persons
hospitalized from the bomb
blasts which occurred on July
7th at Liverpool Street tube
station, Edgeware Road tube
station and in a double-decker
bus at Tavistock Square in Lon-
don. Two weeks later, bombers
attempted to set off another set
of explosives which were de-
tected by alert train commuters
and subverted by quick police
The 714-mile New York
City subway system has 468
stations serving 24 routes -
more than any other system in
the world. It operates 24-hours
a day and is considered to be
safe and fast by commuters.
In New York, the Guyanese
population makes up a small
percentage of the estimated 4.5
million commuters who com-
mute via the city's trains and
buses on a daily basis. Most

ways prove to be the cheapest
and fastest means of getting
around in the Big Apple.
Still, others go shopping in
the city or to find pleasure and
leisure to see Broadway and
comedy shows, concerts, go to
city clubs, hang out with friends
at Times Square and other city
hotspots or go to the movie the-
atres, like IMAX, among other
activities. Then, there are the ul-
timate city lovers who just go
there for the fun of it.
The subways are also used
to go to other areas in Queens,
Brooklyn, Staten Island, the
Bronx and New Jersey.
According to city officials,
the NYPD would not stop
searches of bags brought into
the mass transit system any-
time soon, despite concerns
about racial profiling and the
threat of a legal challenge.
The department's chief
spokesman, Paul Browne said:
"We expect the searches will
Police officers have also set
up inspection points at bus
stops, railroads and ferries,
stopping rider and ordering
backpacks, rolling-suitcases and
other bags opened for quick
searches. Anyone who refuses
to comply with the search must
leave the system.
In response to more than
two dozens of complaints of ra-
cial profiling since the bag
searches began on July 21, Rev-
erend Al Sharpton called on the
NYPD to release statistics on
subway straphangers subjected
to random bag searches.
However, New York Police
Commissioner Raymond Kelly
assured him that police officers
do not use racial profiling when
deciding whose bags to search.
During a press conference
after a 20-minute meeting with
Commissioner Kelly in the lat-
ter part of July, Sharpton stated
that his office has received more
than 20 complaints by commut-
ers who felt they were searched
because of their race or religion.
The reverend said that the
commuters felt they were mis-
taken to be of "Arab-American
descent, which in fact, is still bi-
ased, adding, "I don't think
that we should be saying a pro-
file of a terrorist is Arab any-
more than the profile is one of
"If we're going to have in-
trusion, we should have it equal
and fair with no profiling," he
Sharpton promised to return
to police headquarters if com-
plaints of racial profiling con-
"If we develop a pattern,
we will be back," he told report-
The New York Civil Liber-
ties Union (NYCLU) says that
the searches infringe on basic
constitutional rights and do
nothing to protect against terror-
ism, according to a statement
posted on its website.
NYCLU has posted forms
on its website on which indi-
viduals can report their en-
counters with police conduct-
ing searches on public trans-
portation. The statement
added that the information
contained on these forms will
assist the NYCLU in
analysing and possibly chal-
lenging the constitutionality
of the methods and practices
used by the police in conduct-
ing these searches.

pressed concern about the
NYPD's random bag search
programme and some of East

since they said they could be

Grenada was once seen by the
Reagan administration's ideologies
as vital to the protection of the kind
of democracy that the U.S. was
promoting in the Caribbean and
Latin America In 1983, at the height
of the friction between Castro and
the Reagan administration, Grenada
was moved to the top of the U.S.
regional agenda. On the pretext that
hundreds of American medical
students attending St. George
University were under the threat of
the recently staged bloody coup by
hard-line Marxist Bernard Coard,
the U.S. invaded the island. In
reality, the Grenada invasion was a
small-scale manifestation of a larger
conflict, as the coup gave President
Reagan an excellent opportunity to
display his unswerving anti-
communist policy throughout the
rest of the region by ordering
hundreds of U.S. troops to seize
After the U.S.' quick victory,
its obsessive Cold War interest in
Grenada precipitously waned,
shortly after which Grenada
became a major centre of drug-
trafficking and money laundering
once U.S. forces departed. Along
With six other Caribbean islands
(Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados,
Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St.
Lucia, and St. Vincent and the
Grenadines), Grenada forms the
eastern edge of the Caribbean
transit zone for drugs mostly
cocaine and marijuana products -
travelling from South America to
the U.S. and other global markets.
It is estimated that 20 per cent of
all drugs entering the U.S. pass
through this corridor.
Washington has failed to act
upon the realisation that it has
good reason to be interested in
the economic, political and
social stability of the Caribbean
Basin nations. As a result,
Central American and Caribbean
countries are suffering from the
effects of inadequate and
inconsistent U.S. policies. After
a long period of profound
neglect, following an obsessive
period of concern over the
advent of leftist regimes in
power in Grenada, Panama,
Nicaragua and Guyana, Central
America became once again di
l'ordre du jour for Washington
ideologies. However, stability,
growth, and democracy are not
as much the foci of this renewed
attention as are the economic
and political benefits that the
Bush administration hopes to
reap from the advancement of
the now enacted DR-CAFTA.
Like its predecessors, the Bush
administration offered entrance into
the free trade blocs (FTAA,
CAFIA) it was pioneering as the
curative agent for Nicaragua's
problems. Salvador Stadthagen,
Nicaragua's economic and social
ambassador to the United States
even observed, "CAFTA will be
good for preserving democracy. It
will be a vaccine against instability."
However, such a miraculous
transformation seems unlikely
since no fundamental rethinking of
the country's post-war political,
economic and social conditions had
been conducted or are even distantly
fathomed. Roughly 75 per cent of
Nicaragua's population is still mired
in poverty, reflecting an annual per
capital income of $750. In March
2005, violence peaked with the
outbreak of protests throughout the
country in which scores were
injured. Social unrest gave way to
political instability, and President
Bolatios was forced to seek a
remedy to what was fast becoming
a fatal malady or resign his post.
In 1990, after a decade of
civil war under Sandinista rtue,
the successor conservative
government, with Washington's
neoliberal economic policies,
hoping to drag the country out
of its economic plight. After an
intense electoral campaign in
which the U.S. overtly and
covertly spent millions of
dollars to defeat Sandinista
leader Daniel Ortega in the 1990
presidential race, a majority of
Nicaraguans elected U.S.-backed
candidate Violetta Chamorro,
hoping that forthcoming U.S.
aid would put their country on
the path to economic and social
development. More than a
decade later, however Nicaragua
remains the second poorest
country in the hemisphere, only
slightly better off than strife-
ravaged Haiti. Throughout the
years, the U.S. has extensively
campaigned both publicly and
privately for its preferred
candidates in the country's
presidential races, with little
concern for the democratic
credibility of those being
backed. Poverty and corruption
have deteriorated state
institutions, yet the U.S.
maintains its ambivalence
toward the country.
High crime rates resulting
from poverty, unemployment,
and the seeming impossibility
of achieving acceptable
standards of living has bedeviled
all of Central America. In
activities, which fuel the
ubiquitous street gangs, have
become fundamental to the
economy. While the country was
becoming a guinea pig for post-
war neoliberal economic
experiments, the U.S. lost its
interest in a region no longer at
the forefront of its foreign
policy priorities. This is
extremely unfortunate, because
poor economic and social
indicators are the corollary of
political crisis. In the latest
Latinobar6metro poll, 70 per
cent of Nicaraguans said that
they would be willing to accept
a de facto authoritarian
government provided it resolved
the country's grim economic
crisis. This choking popular
consensus is not good news for
the hemispheric champion of
democracy, since U.S. economic
interests in the region depend,
among others, on the political
stability of the Caribbean Basin

The signing of the Panama

although constituting a geo-strategic
victory for the U.S., increased
political unrest among
Panamanians. Some of the most
nationalist among them, who
viewed the canal as a symbol of
national pride, felt betrayed by the
Torrijos government and insisted
that the treaties were fraudulent due
to the additional stipulations that
the Panamanian strongman had
agreed to after the treaty had been

residual rights to intervene in the

T here are several ironies
about the picture on

are the most glaring. The
first is -that the water being

from a broken main, some 50

from the Ministry of Labour,

background attests to.

however, about these two ironies

penters, weeders, even prosti-

glomeration of ventures is not so
much the specialisation of ser-
vices or products, but rather the
common qualification of those
who staff it all, to some de-
gree, are drug addicts. Welcome
to Junkie Inc.
There is perhaps no better
manifestation of phenomenon -
industry spawned by addiction.
- than the carwash operated out-
side of the Ministry of Labour,
Human Services and Social Secu-
rity. The broken water-main on
the pavement next to what used
to be main branch of the Guyana
National Cooperative Bank
(GNCB) is a perpetual fount,
running day and night according
to one of the men involved in the
Added to this unending sup-
ply of water, the basic raw-ma-
terial of their service, the loca-
tion offers another plus for any
car-washing venture. On their
side of the road, what is easily a
dozen taxis line up along the
pavement; across the road for
them is the Promised Land the
sprawling car park. The park on
any given day has more than a
hundred cars and buses running
the East Bank route: short-drop
cars to Ruimveldt; buses running
to Parika; to Linden; to Timehri;
in fact all the major taxi and bus
parks are less than two minutes
When Sunday Chronicle vis-
ited the carwash. what we found
was a boisterous, motley crew of
men at first suspicious of our
motives. After being told what
this paper is trying to do, sus-
picion is quickly replaced by an
attitude of vindication, a surge in
self-conscious justification of
why they are doing what
"You see me," one man
named Joseph offers without
prompting, "I got certificate
for wiring house, fix freezer
and all them thing, but the
system, George...the system
got we here. Who got to
hustle, who got to wash car,
everybody got to live."
By the time he is finished
saying this, a chorus, or rather a
cacophony of voices join.in
when several men- temporarily
cease washing a bus to support
what he says.
"You see people out here, is
skilled people," one offers. The
rest is mostly noise, with words
like "mason". "carpenter", "sea-
man" interspersed within it. One
man proudly proclaims that he
used to be chief clerk at a well-
known Georgetown store. He's
shirtless like most of those
around him, dressed only in the
sort of tattered three-quarter
pants you'd expect to see on the
Incredible Hulk except of
course that there is nothing hulk-
ing or incredible about the thin,
wiry former office worker with
a haggard look on his gaunt face
and his entire livelihood, a damp
and ragged piece of cloth, in his
"All these crackheads.'all
these crackheads went high
school." says Joseph. regaining
his monopoly on the convers'-
;.-p -r. sets off on a profuse
rant about the intelligence ofjunk-
ies and the inability of the aver-
age person to dupe them in day
to day transactions.
"Anytime you dealing' with
a smoke man and tell yourself

be the biggest one. You can't

ished saying this, an irate mini-
bus driver launches into a string
of expletives against two men
who he thinks are taking too long
to wash his car. He threatens,
with most of his bus already
cleaned inside and out, to take
his business elsewhere.
And then there is another
dimension to this. About twenty
minutes into our interview, the
THE WAY WE WERE
When We visit the former lo-
cation, after talking to the men
at carwash, what we find is a
drab place just opposite the of-
fices of the Hughes, Fields and
Stoby law firm. In fact there is
so little activity, compared to
the hustle and bustle of Cornhill

ahead of you."
He insists that it is the drugs.
- "hard drugs, raw drugs, co-
caine" which were "meant for
this world" which gives junkies
The reality, however, paints
a different picture. The average-
cost of washing a car, from a
standard carwash, is around
$500; $1000 for a minibus.
Junkie labour is half of that. Jo-
seph and his associates charge
around $400 dollars to clean a
minibus inside and out, and
around $200 for a car; and often,
because of the vehicle owner's
insistence on speed, they some-
times have to team up, two or
three at a time, to undertake a
job. That is, of course, when
they do get paid. It is not an un-
common occurrence, they say,
for someone to come and use
their services and opt not to re-
"Some bus man," one of the
car-washers says, "when you
tell them four hundred dollars to
wash a bus, inside and out, some
of them give you two hundred
dollars; some of them drive
away: some of them cuss you
and tell you how "you's a
junkie'. When they go to a wash
bay. they can't order the wuk,
they got to stand up and watch."
"And when the wuk done,"
adds Joseph. "they got to mek
sure they money right."
Almost as soon as he is fin-
reason for Joseph's earlier ver-
bosity concerning the virtues of
narcotics becomes clear. A short,
wiry man (seemingly, wiry is the
standard physique among ad-
dicts) comes up to him, and
slips him some money in an ear-
Joseph walks off a short
distance, pulls a small plastic
bag out of the grass not too far
away his not-so-secret stash -
and with a repeat of the hand-
shake hands the now visibly less
agitated young man the weed lhe
paid for. Joseph is not just an-
other junkie carwash man; he is
also the corer's marijuana dealer.
For most of the men out at
Cornhill Street washing cars for
negligible money is an alternative
to criminal activity. Although
outright criminal activity with
the exception of Joseph's deal-
ing seems absent from the
carwash, the rough and tumble
behaviour of the men, and occa-
sionally women, out there con-
stantly threatens to erupt into
outright violence. Though col-
laboration is the norm, the
carwash is fiercely competitive
business with a fist or knife
fight threatening to break out ev-
cry now and then. It is in fact
this in-fighting that caused most
of the men to move from where
the carwash was originally lo-
cated. at the corner of Hadficld
and fr1, Sireels, a depressed
init, city area s cll-known for its
Street, that we at first pass what
was the first large scale carwash
in Guyana. Three men lie half-
asleep on a bench in.the shade
of some trees, safe from the
scorching mid-morning sun. A
couple of five-gallon water
bottles stand neatly together at
the side of the road. The dry
ground around them is proof
enough that no real sort of busi-
ness has been done for the morn-
"Right now the business get
lil slow but you can't fight it," a
young man named Davis says.
Davis' friend, an older
man called Jango, chips in
saying that this used to be the
"original wash bay", before
more established carwashes.
Davis, either in his late
twenties or early thirties, says
that he has been washing cars
out there for several years now.
He says that he has been a car-
penter and a mason, but right
now, no regular jobs are coming
his way. He recalls a time when
business was far more brisk than
it is now.
Stronger, less stringy, and with
cleaner clothes than all of the men
on Comhill Street, Davis does not
appear to be a junkie. He is never-
theless. sympathetic to the cause -
even if with noticeably less fervour

Nevertheless he admits that
it is the junkie's tendency to-

urge that inhabits the vast ma-
jority of drug addicts that is
largely responsible for the hard
times that has hit the formerly
flourishing carwash. He says
that he doesn't work with any
and everyone, except his "big

Jango adds, "is dishonesty mek

Davis says that those who
remain on Hadfield Street are
humble, hardworking and hon-
est. He charges about three to
four hundred dollars per car, and
relies on the discretion of the ve-
hicle owner if they want to tip
him or pay him more than that.
While Joseph and the other
men at Cornhill Street view their
thing as a temporary hustle, a
transient business until they are
harassed off their corner by the
powers that be, Davis and Jango
are forward-looking. Davis ac-
knowledges that washing cars on
the side of the street is illegal but
he says that he, Jango and some
other men who operate at the
Hadfield Street location work
hard to keep the area clean.
"You ain even supposed to
see that here," he says pointing
at a discarded food box on the
ground. He brings attention to a
large pile of debris further up the
road; the City Council recently
paid them to clean the gutters in
the surrounding area but never
got around to removing the de-
"We dig so deep, we even
find the original drain," he says
Jango and Davis say that
they are aiming to re-estab-
lish the reputation and popu-
larity the carwash once had,
now that the more belligerent
and dishonest workers have
They sing praises of attor-
ney Nigel Hughes. Davis points
to a concreted part of the road-
side a couple of metres from
where they are, where a food-
stand sits under a tarpaulin tent.
He says Hughes concreted the
place so the woman who owns
the stand could have a better
place to sell. With a concrete
patch like that, Davis.and Jango
say that they would work hard
to set up a proper carwash and
pay city rates and taxes. Until
that happens, they are forced to
sit on the corner and watch as
cars drive past them, many fresh
from a wash on Cornhill Street.
The former addict who goes
by the nickname of Peter Sellers
represents a different kind of
"addict entrepreneur" from the
men at Cornhill Street. He's an
itinerant vendor selling anything
from wallets to screwdrivers de-
pending on his budget.
Sellers says that-he first be-
came addicted to marijuana (he
insists that he has never done
cocaine) when the mother of his
children left him about six years
ago. What was an occasional
puff turned into a thousand-dol-
lar-a-day habit. With an expen-
sive addiction and the resulting
inability to work because of it,
Sellers took to begging to feed
himself and to support his habit;
often making up sob stories to
dupe people into giving him
"I used to like tell people a
lot of lies just to get they
money. Tell them like you need
a passage to go somewhere and
you ain't going nowhere," he
Not many people believed
his stories, some just giving him
money and- telling him to do
whatever he wanted to with it.
More often than not though, he
met with degradation and embar-
rassment; something that influ-
enced his decision to go into
business for himself.
"I used to see nuff man out
there selling who ain got head with
me," he says. Sellers saved up
enough money and went to what he
refers to as a couple of cheap stores.
He says that he started selling vari-
ous articles but he has a particular
knack foi selling tools, something
that earned him the name Peter Sell-
"Most of them man call a
price and would stick pun it but
I like bargain. If one of them call
two-fifty fuh a screwdriver he
gun hold out pun that two-fifty;
I does flex, once I mek a profit
off of it."
There's one area his busi-
ness acumen did not influence
his actions; his addiction. Sellers
"Going out in life was like 1
going out pun a stage and I used
to get stage-fright, you know.
But when you smoking banna, is
like you just floating through and
you ain got time ivith nobody,
all de stage fright gone."
What eventually stopped
him from funnelling most of his
income into his habit was a near-
brush with death. After getting
into a fight and being stabbed
about the.body, he decided to
"turn Christian". He says that
with-the help of a Christian man
who had given him some money
to buy tools, he turned his life
Sellers' trials are still far from
over. He is still homeless and still
subject to the' sort of abuse and
prejudice that comes with the terri-
tory. He recalls nearly being shot at
by two bandits who were at-
tempting to rob a business place
close to where he once slept at
nights. He was forced to drop his
tools and run but when he re-
turned all were gone.
Allegedly completely off his
marijuana addiction now, Sellers
is trying to build up back his in-
ventory of stock. He wants to
move on from mere cheap wal-
lets something he has been
forced to sell-almost exclusively
now to more expensive and
sellable items, like tools. The
problem apart from capital of
course is that Peter Sellers still
has stage fright. And while he
might have gotten off the weed.
he now admits that much of the
money he earns now goes to
support his newest addiction: al-

The.thing is Junkie Inc, like
any other business, does not op-
erate in a vacuum; as much as it
is staffed and run by the so-
called scum of society, it is our
patronage of its services, our
consumption of its products
which at the end of the day
keeps this particular industry vi-
able in the smoke-addled
'black' as it were.
It has become normal for
housewives to hire junkies to
clean their gutters, weed their
yards, mend their fences, and
dump their garbage. Market ven-
dors rely on junkie labour to get
their goods from one place to
the other. Minibus operators hot
only use addicts to .clean their
vehicles but many touts on the
various bus parks. Drug-addicted
sex workers charge as little $300
dollars for often unprotected
sexual intercourse, sometimes
less than that for less 'complete'

times as if they are sub-sub-

Junkie Inc as if it existed on
Mars as opposed to right across

threatens more established,
more legitimate ventures that

hegemony would not allow
such an outcome.
The position of the
Portuguese was ambiguous.
They were white yet they were
imported to do the work of
slaves. They were sellers of
goods in a plantation society.
They had economic power but
not political power. They could
access the plantocracy but they
were never allowed the privilege
of membership. The Africans
and Indians were aware that the
Portuguese were never
recognized by the plantocracy
on equal terms and they showed
their disrespect by referring to
them by the derogatory
description of 'Potagee' [see
Despres 1967: 63].
With the end of slavery,
the Africans did several
things which impacted on the
plantation labour supply.

at the launching of the
They moved away from the
plantation to set up
independent villages and to
begin to establish an
alternative social structure
which reflected their
aspirations as a free people.
In keeping with these
aspirations, they began to
bargain for better wages and
for improved conditions of
work. These activities
threatened the edifice of the
plantation system [B. Moore
The literature reveals that the
arrival of the Indians called forth
varying responses from the
Africans. We will highlight two of
these here viz. empathy and
opposition. Empathy could be
observed in the evidence given by
Rose, an African labourer of
Plantation Vreed-en-Hoop. He
was giving evidence at the 1839
Commission of Enquiry into the
maltreatment of the first batch
that arrived on the 5th May
1838. Said Rose:
'They appeared to me as
severely punished as [were] my
matties during apprenticeship,
when flogged they were flogged
by the cat, the same as was
formerly in use; they brought all
from the sick house together, and
took them to the negro yard to
be flogged; they were tied to a
post' [see Dwarka Nath-1970:
In a similar vein, Will Clay,
foreman on the same plantation,
told the commission that 'the
coolies were locked up in the sick
house ... they were flogged; their
backs were swollen...' Alexander
Barrington reported 'when they
run away and were stubborn,
they get two or three lickings;
they are flogged with cat-o'-nine
tails; they were tied with a rope
round the post and were licked
on the bare back'. The evidence
of Elizabeth Caeser supported
those of Clay, Barrington and
Rose [see Nath 1970: 15-16].
Their submissions led to the
conviction of the perpetrators of
A decade after the arrival
of the Indians empathy began
to be accompanied if not
replaced by opposition. One
of the first acts of physical
conflict was recorded ten years
after the arrival of the first
batch of Indian immigrant
indentured labourers. During
the 1848 strike by the African
sugar workers an Anglican
clergymen in the Essequibo
observed that on one of the
estates the Negroes tried to set
fire to the cottage of an East
Indian sirdar during the strike.
They regarded the East Indians
with some hostility "as
interlopers' [R.. Moore 1970:
.In defence of their self-
interest the Africans opposed
indentureship, or so the pro-
African argument was
constructed. In the main, the
Amerindians were excluded
from the political economy of
the plantation after slavery
ended. The Africans, who were
already in Guiana for at least
two centuries, presented
themselves as the indigenous
section of the labour force and
the workers from all other
racial groups were treated as
immigrants [Rodney 1981:
174]. By the mid-nineteenth
century, 'immigrants' came to
mean Indian. Even in official
correspondence and records
they were so labelled.

MAN AND WARISHI:
Many communities in the areas bordering the proposed Shell Beach
Protected Area cultivate traditional crops (e.g. cassava) and kitchen
gardens are typically cultivated by women for vegetable production.
Other crops include sweet potatoes, yams, eddoes, pumpkin,
peppers, papaws. peanuts, and beans. Many farmers who are i
interested to diversify into non-traditional crops (e.g. citrus, coconut).

W ELL, I have surely enjoyed writing
these lessons for a better life over
the past few weeks. This column,
which I write for you every week, has not been
just for your benefit. They have really helped
me to learn to recognize the difference
between achieving important goals and
ruining your life and the life of your loved ones
by pushing yourself beyond your limits.
I have learned to tune into my feelings and:
I now understand when I have gone too far.
Sometimes its important when you are feeling.
stretched just to stop and ask yourself 'How
important is this?' If you're not feeling good.
does it really matter if the floor is dirty? So
you aren't looking-your best, does this have
to ruin your day?
Take a reality check. Why does your life
have to stay on hold until you are the perfect
.weight; have the perfect qualifications; have
the perfect relationship or live in the perfect
house? Sometimes the risk of change feels
so challenging that we will come up with
anything to delay it. Just check that you aren't
doing this and let go of the need to control
LOVE AND VALUE YOURSELF
Deep down we are all excessively self-critical, even the
-seemingly most confident people have a well-developed 'inner
ncrLn'. The inner critic is that part of each of us which nags
away and is never satisfied with our performance. You can easily
recognize its voice: it is the one that tells you off all the time;
ne er good enough/clever enough/thin enough/educated enough
to. do or be anything of note in this world. It is important to
understand that the inner critic will never be content because
its work is never over its job is to keep on criticising and so it
Always keep us on the hook.
DEAL WITH YOUR INNER CRITIC:
Accept that the inner critic will go on nagging at you.
Learn to recognize the voice of your inner critic. As soon as
you start to feel low, listen to what you are saying to yourself.
Are these negative things really true or is this the voice of your
Visualise your inner critic resting in a deckchair, drink in
hand, feet up in some exotic location. In other words, send your
inner critic on holiday, keep him/her happy and he/she will stop
telling you off.
Work on your inner critic and soon you won't be continually
bringing yourself down. You are an incredible and multi-talented
Lesson to learn: Love and value yourself, be your own
best friend; this relationship will last forever.
DE-CLUTTER YOUR LIFE
The only way to approach this is easily, slowly and
methodically. Go from room to room and write down the
specific areas that need clearing. Whatever you do don't allow
yourself to become overwhelmed by it all so that you give up
before you start. Plan your de-junking campaign realistically;
do one small job at a time and then cross it off your list.
USE IT OR LOSE IT.
This isn't as drastic as it sounds because there really are
three 'use it' categories: the useful, the beautiful and the
sentimental. Collect some cardboard boxes and begin! As you
evaluate each article, ask yourself these questions.
Is it beautiful?
Is it useful?
Does it have sentimental value?
The first two are easy to decide, but watch this last one.
Are you sure you absolutely can't live without this item or is
this nostalgic streak the very one that is creating the clutter
problems? Be ruthless and decisive or you will never get to lose
anything. And don't sabotage yourself by tackling too much at
once so that you bury yourself in stuff and end up just throwing
it all back into new piles.
Once you have cleared an area, stop, rest and then do
something more another day. Gradually you will fill boxes for
the rubbish dump or for recycling and maybe for the charity
shop. Pass things on to people who will appreciate them and
Lesson to learn: As you begin to create new space around
you your self-respect will reach dizzying heights.
NEVER EVERY GIVE UP
When your life is hard and difficulties seem to appear
whichever way you turn it is natural to feel dejected. When we
are in the midst of a trauma we will not feel inclined to take
helpful advice on how to feel better. At this stage, we really
need to experience the power of our feelings of sadness, grief,
anger, rage, hurt, shame or whatever other strong emotion we
However, the good news is that this immediate painful stage
will pass. Everything changes, including our emotions. Remember
that this is true and wait for that moment when your deep
negativity begins to change. You might have been feeling very
low for some time and then, one day, you sense a seed of hope.
Lesson to learn: The darkest hour is truly just before the
dawn. Believe in the goodness of the universe and know that
you can and will feel hopeful again.
BE YOUR BEST
You are amazing! This is the truth about you, so go out
there and tell it, feel it, and live it. The woman/man who smiles
back at you from the mirror knows her/his true worth and
expresses it in every moment of her/his life.
Take a look at your grandmother for example. Love her for
her grit and determination and her resilience in the face of some
time. o\ eri-helming odds. Admire her style and grace when the
chips are down and she is negotiating her future. Respect her
fle.xbility and create ny as she hurdles her challenges. Comfort
her when she is down and marvel at the way she rises up and
bounces back yet again! No you can't keep a good woman
jdon9. She is always moving onwards and upwards in pursuit
of her dreams.
You have the energy and willpower to push towards your
goals and this senseof direction and purpose will make you
feel like a winner every time. What more can you ever do than
to have a go and do your best? And when things don't always
turn out the way you had hoped, you are safe and secure in
the knowledge that you gave it your best shot. This is what is
meant by a winning mentality.
Let nothing grind you down.
Let no one diminish you.
Believe in yourself and know that you are here to do
And get out-there and do them!
Lesson to learn: Touch others with your boundless
optimism; positive energy is the greatest gift you can share with

Then it was Lady Holly's
turn, as Hollingsworth is known
throughout the length and
breadth of Tri-State New York,
to take the floor, which she did
with her now familiar verve and
aplomb, choosing as her contri-

It was, regrettably, the only

The two first met in New

y life has been
filled with its
lenge in the past year.
In August, 2004 I had a
life-changing diving ac-
cident that left me pa-
ralysed from my chest
down. I was a 31-year-
old, married, father of
two, a successful chef,
and a modern man of

unclear what I would be able to

I spent 115 days away
from home, mostly learning to
do simple things like feed my-
.self, bathe, and sit up. While.I
was away, the community ral-
lied in support. There were
fundraisers to renovate my
house for me and my wheel-
chair. Friends, family, and com-
plete strangers donated money,

Every day I looked forward
to coming home; I spoke to my
wife every evening, and she vis-
ited almost every weekend. It
was rocky, but I thought we
would make it. I thought we
were soul mates and would
grow old together. I guess no
one knows what they would do
if their spouse became perma-
nently handicapped. How do

I heard many stories of
people who had successful ca-
reers, marriages, and families af-
ter a spinal cord injury. I was
especially positive in the begin-
ning, when I had the support of
therapists and specialists.
My positive attitude faded
when I came home. I was frus-
trated with things I used to be

STUDIES have confirmed my experience
that although bad breath is a very common
problem, most people are embarrassed to
seek dental assistance specifically for that. Now
bad breath has plagued mankind for many
centuries according to records from old
civilisations. Indeed the New York Times health
columnist Jane E. Brody has written that she
receives more questions about bad breath called
halitosis, than any other medical problem. But
ironically the problem of bad breath is not
difficult to solve.
Probably the most significant aspect of halitosis is the
fact that you cannot really tell that you have got it. This
is the time when you have to depend on the honesty and
kindness of friends to let you know if your breath is highly
scented because we are all immune to our own breath.
What if you are on your way to an important meeting and
you simply must know if your breath will precede you
through the door?
It is reported that the ancient Greek used mouth rinse
to conquer breath, white wine, anise seed and myrrh. The
Italians used sage, cinnamon, juniper seeds, root of cy-
press, rosemary leaves. Today, the mouthwash industry
is worth trillions although it may surprise many to learn
that mouth rinses cannot cure bad breath.
The mouth rinses on the market in a general
sense is nothing more than flavoured alcohol with a
bit of antiseptic. In fact, all that most of them do is
to serve as a temporary agent which freshens the
breath for a few hours by killing many of the obnox-
ious bacteria in the mouth.
As a dental student we had to study a textbook en-
titled, 'The Seventy-seven Causes of Bad Breath'. Obvi-
ously, curing bad breath depends on what is causing it.
In 85 per cent of the cases, it is due to something in the
mouth. Most often halitosis is the result of nothing more
serious than a dirty mouth. Plaque, the nearly invisible
film of bacteria that is constantly forming in your mouth
is often responsible. Tooth decay by itself does not smell
bad. It is the food trapped in the cavities and crevices
which becomes putrid by the colonies of bacteria that can
in turn produce foul smelling gases, is what give rise to
There is a standard way that a dentist treats bad
breath. He or she first seeks to eliminate all the unusual
areas where the food remnants and bacteria accumulate.
These include badly decayed teeth (stumps), cavities, tar-
tar, gingival pockets (derived from gum disease), chipped
teeth, faulty fixed dentures, leaking fillings and gold caps,
extrinsic stains (nicotine deposits), soft tissue infections
The Dentist Advises
(gum abscesses) and plaque.
Next, the dentist educates the patient about oral health
which includes strict adherence to the practice of oral hy-
giene (brushing, flossing, dietary intake etc), accompanied
by regular dental checkups.
While this is undoubtedly the best way to treat the
most common form of bad breath, victims may want to
try a few methods to control the situation.
The key is to keep your mouth clean. Thorough
brushing and flossing is a good start. Remember to brush
your tongue as well as your gums. A dry mouth
contributes to a smelly mouth. Good examples of this are
the characteristic morning breath and halitosis due to
fever, nervousness or menstruation. Try chewing
sugarless gum or sucking sugarless mints to stimulate
salivary flow. Wash the mouth out vigorously after each
meal. Plain soapy water is the cheapest mouth rinse. Avoid
high scented foods (e.g. garlic), smoking, alcohol, etc.
Finally, if you must use a marketed mouth rinse, use a
product with fluoride for its cavity fighting potential,

IN THIS WEEK
Reading for Understanding
Throughout the past weeks you have been reading to find
out the main thought or the main idea of many types
of stories. You have also been reading to find out cer-
tain details or facts, and to understand how writers use
words in unusual and interesting ways. Now you are
ready to read for a fourth purpose.
You must have heard it said that the answer you are look-
ing for is at times not actually stated in the words of the
story. To find the correct answer, you have to consider
several of the facts of the story. You can find out the
answer only after some careful searching and figuring out.
In the next two weeks of stories, you will learn to read
for this purpose. It is called reading for inference. You
will also answer questions on main thought, detail, and
on interesting and unusual ways of saying things.
Palmyra, our huge Shepherd, came home one evening
with a severe limp. We washed and disinfected his cut
paw, bandaged it, and watched him hobble into the liv-
ing room where he stretched out to snooze before the
fire place. Next day Palmyra was still lolling on the liv-
ing room floor and the next day, and the next. Even-
tually, however, we decided that Palmyra would have to
exercise his paw to prevent it from stiffening. When fi-
nally he did consent to venture out, it was with the air of
Just as Palmyra tottered outside, our other two dogs
spied a rabbit. Off they started with wild ear-splitting
yelps and in a second Palmyra had joined them, tear-
ing across the landscape, as limpless a dog as ever
chased a rabbit.
When the three returned, Palmyra was frisking and ca-
vorting in fine fettle. Suddenly he saw me watching him.
He stopped dead still; his tail slowly dropped between
his legs; his "injured" paw was lifted piteously. Tragically,
Palmyra hobbled toward me, all set to be once more a
confirmed invalid with special pamperings which, he had
learned, accompanied that favoured status.
Adapted from a story by Hildergarde Lemcke
Now that you have read the story, let us try to answer
the first question. Remember you were told that you were
reading for inference or reading to put ideas together?
Well, let's look at the first question.
1. Why did Palmyra stop so suddenly? (a) He was tired.
(b) His paw was hurting him. (c) He knew his master
had caught him. (d) His master was angry.
Think about this question. Look at the first answer, "He
was tired." It is true that the sudden running away had
tired him, but that was not the reason why he stopped.
The story tells us that he played with the two dogs after
he came back. This answer is not the correct one.
Study the second answer, "His paw was hurting him later,
but at the time he stopped, it was not hurting him. This
answer is wrong.
Think about the third answer, "He knew his master had
caught him." Palmyra stopped playing the minute he
knew his master was watching him. He knew his mas-
ter would only attend to him if he was still hurt. He
quickly tried to pretend that his paw was still bothering
him. This is the correct answer.
Look at the last answer, "His master was angry." We
may guess that his master might have become angry
with him later for trying to fool him. But the story does
not tell us that he was angry. This answer is wrong.
You have seen the deductions that led to the correct an-
swer. Now use the same method to do the second ques-
2. Why did Palmyra go outside "with the air of a mar-
tyr"? (a) His paw was hurting him. (b) He wanted the
dogs to feel sorry for him. (c) He wanted to chase the
rabbit. (d) He wanted to fool his master.
3. Why did Palmyra chase the rabbit? (a) He forgot
about his paw. (b) He wanted to keep his paw from stiff-
ening. (c) He was tired of resting. (d) He loved rabbit

by Petamber Persaud
Mankind has benefited enormously from
oral literature. In fact, man's remarkable
development was based solidly on oral
literature that was the main repository and
disseminator of knowledge until the printed word
However, because of the volatile and insubstantial nature of oral
literature, a much greater portion of information than what we have
utilised has been lost.
Exponents of this form of literature like the storytellers, come-
dians and performing artistes have suffered from lack of long term
recognition due to this hazard of the trade. What a greater loss to
the world that many of these performers were confined to devel-
oping societies in days of yore without access to recording/storage
Sam Chase was an accomplished performing artiste of 'boister-
ous slapstick, outrageous lampooning and ridiculous impersonation'.
Although his performing career spanned some four decades with a
prodigious output of innovation, almost none of his work survived.
At the time of writing, this author found only one bit of tangible
evidence of the man's work. It's a slim book labelled 'Laugh with
Sam Chase: 50 radio shows as they were broadcast over Radio
Between its covers, a reference read, 'A Bill Rogers Publica-
tion' with Rogers advertising himself as publisher, promoter, mas-
ter of ceremonies, composer and king of shanto.
Among Chase's more popular plays were 'Guardroom Jitters',
'Collapsible Bridegroom', 'The Dreamer and the Jar', 'The Mare
and the Bonds', 'The Ruler and the Boo-Boo Man', 'Soft Drink
Tax', 'Lizzie and the Back Pay', and 'Gentlemen, The King'.
-Chase was labelled the 'conscience of the nation' for his
themes were on labour, crime, housing, morality and super-
stition. Wherever he performed, his shows were geared to suit
the situation be it to inmates of the prisons or inmates of.
The Palms, be it to the 'pork-knockers' in the interior or the
patrons of urban cinemas.
Chase performed at cinemas throughout the country. The cin-
ema then was the local theatre of the colony, staging international
shows featuring the Platters, Sparrow, Ben E. King, Johnny Mathis,
Mukesh, Rafi, Hari Om Sharon, dance troupes, plays and variety
Initially, Sam Chase was a one-man act as he relied heavily is
on elaborate costuming. But he became too popular to keep to him-
self; individuals and groups wanted in on his act and he was dis-
posed to the idea, experimenting and reaching new levels in enter-
A playwright of popular fare he was, but he also played other
roles. He was in his time the best comedian, a promoter, much-
sought-after master of ceremonies, a drummer, composer of 'shantos'
and romantic ballads and a singer. As an MC, he could control a
mob with his wit, and woe betides anyone who stepped out of
Sam Chase started his performing career in the late 1920s
at the London Theatre later renamed Plaza Cinema and now
a sad shell of what was once a jewel in the crown of mass com-
munication. Chase was influenced in that direction by the
singer Syd Martin and his uncle H. C. Wilson who was a mu-
sician and reporter. Chase also did a bit of newspaper jour-
nalism but the magic for him was the spoken word, the in-
stant response of the audience, the hum of the spectators, on
this energy he strove.
Sam Chase was born in 1903 in Georgetown, Guyana. He at-
tended St. Leonard's Anglican and St. Thomas under Dan Sharpies;
it's understood that once you've passed thought the hands of Dan
Sharpies, you were considered educated.
Between 1917 and 1919, he was attached to the transport and
Harbours Department. About the same period, Chase served in the
choir of the St. George's Cathedral.
In the 40s, during the war years, at the peak of his career, Chase
was enlisted by the Government in its 'Grow More Food' cam-
paign on radio in a show known-as the BPI Hit Parade featuring
'Miss Snodgrass'. (The Bureau of Public Information at the time
headed by A. J. Seymour)
Talk about local comedy and the name, Sam Chase, materialises.
And always in association Jack Mello; always Sam Chase and Jack
Jack Mello was Chase's main and most popular supporting
player. But Chase also teamed, with others like Ted Ray, Jack
Hylton, Crossman, Miller and Cumberbatch.
He worked with the groups headed by promoter Zelda
Martindale and Bill Rogers.
He toured with Madame O'Lindy to Suriname, Cayenne,
Trinidad and Tobago and other parts of the Caribbean.
P. H. Daly described Chase best as a "mass educator" whose
"university was the stage, his faculty was the Chair of Comedy,
his text books lay in the immense resonances of his creative mind".
In 1969, Reverend Benjamin who administered the last rites
spoke glowingly of Chase's contribution to the arts. The bear-
ers of the coffin taking Sam Chase on the last leg of the jour-
ney were all artistes.

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. Today
we'll learn about The Respiratory System and
The Digestive System.
The Respiratory System.
The cells in the body all need oxygen. When oxy-
gen releases energy in the cells, carbon dioxide is
formed. Having too much of carbon dioxide in the
body is poisonous and must be gotten rid of. Oxy-
gen is constantly taken in and carbon dioxide given
off in an exchange called respiration. The respi-
ratory system is made up of the following organs
nose, trachea and lungs.
pipes, all the way into the lungs. In the lungs, oxy-
gen is transferred from the air sacs to the blood.
The oxygen is then carried to all parts of the body
by the blood. In turn, carbon dioxide is released
from the blood and enters the lungs. This gas
(waste) then leaves the body when you breathe out
or exhale. So remember, it is very important to
breathe properly so you can live a longer and

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to this Social Studies input. Let us insist
at this point that habits good or bad are de-
fined as behaviour patterns which cannot be
changed overnight. If you want to study effec-
tively, you must be prepared to make a clean
break with those habits that are not helpful for
good study. Be careful, now! Love you.
IN LAST WEEK
Know more about animals, especially those called
/ The horse, donkey and zebra have strong toes or
hooves to run around fast all day naturally.
/ Cows, sheep, goats, deer, antelopes, giraffes and
others have two toes with strong nails, which we call
v Some mammals which are not exactly cloven
hoofed include pigs, elephants, rhinoceros and hippo-
potamuses or hippopotami. These have small hooves,
or very strong nails, on all their toes.
/ The mammals which have hooves are called
ungulates. These make up the largest mammalian
family numerically. They eat grass or leaves and do not
need to hunt other animals for food. They need good
legs and strong hooves to run away from the enemies
mwho hunt them. Have a look at the cow.
/ The camel has two toes on each foot. Its toes
spread side-ways when they are put down. This makes
the pad into broad flat feet which do not sink into the
soft desert sand.
V Another large family of mammals is the carnivores,
so called because that family lives mainly on meat.
They are hunters, and their weapons are their claws
and teeth. Look at members of the cat family.
IN THIS WEEK
Some mammals swim. Yes, some other mammals
also swim. Here are some facts on swimming mam-
V Whales, dolphins and porpoises, which are all
members of the whale family, look and live like fishes.
They nourish their young on mother's milk. They live
completely in the sea. They have flippers for forelegs,
and have fish-tails.
V There is one difference between the whales and
fish. Whales have to come to the water surface to
breathe. When the whale comes up to breathe out or
'blow', it sends up a fountain of water. The fish family
does not have to come up for breathing, nor does it
send up streams of water.
V The whale has a 'nose' valve which closes when it
submerges or goes beneath the water surface. This
valve prevents it from getting drowned.
V Whales are the largest of all the mammals. The
common rorqual whale (whale with dorsal fin; red whale)
can grow as long as eighty feet long.
V Another mammalian group that lives as much at
sea as on land is made up of the seal, sealion and
walrus. When on the shore, members of this group
breed their young and live on fish they catch in the sea.
Whales cannot live on land like this group of mammals.
V A good look at the body of this mammalian group
should reveal the fin-shape. When at sea, they swim
just like the fish! Even though they look clumsy on the
shore, they can move quickly there.
Something to Do
1. We are certain that you have seen the whale, the
dolphin, and the porpoise in films and in books and can
identify them. Cut out their pictures from somewhere
safe and paste them in your note-books.
2. If you go to the museum some time before your
examination next year, look for one member of the
whale family. Look for its nostril (sometimes called
blow-hole) near the top of its head.
3. There are at least two otters in our Zoological Park.
Get a picture of an otter and send it to a pen friend.
Give details about this mammal after you have visited

does it go? The digestive system will help us to
answer these questions.
This system is one of the important systems in the
body, because it provides nutrients for the body.
Without nutrients in the body we would not be able
to look healthy and strong and. The mouth,
oesophagus, stomach, liver, small intestine and
the large intestine all make up the digestive
in the mouth the teeth would grind up the food until
it becomes soft The food is then swallowed and
goes down the oesophagus or gullet into the stom-
ach. When the food reaches the stomach that is
where the process of digestion takes place.
The liver, small intestine and the large intestine, all
have their separate or specific functions.
The liver: the largest glandular organ in mam-
mals (human beings). It secretes bile, has an im-
portant function in the metabolism of carbohydrates,
fats, and proteins, and contains a substance es-
sential to the normal production of red blood cells.
The small intestine: the narrow, convoluted up-
per part of the intestines, extending from the pyloric
end of the stomach to the large intestine.
The large intestine: the relatively large part of
the intestines of mammals (human beings) be-
tween the small intestine and the anus, including
the cecum, colon, and rectum.
Putting the meaning of each part together you will under-
stand the main function of the digestive system.
There are a few words that may need a little re-
searching, so you would understand a little more
about the digestive system.

Foul Shot by Edwin A. Hoey
With two 60's stuck on the score board
And two seconds hanging on the clock,
The solemn.by, in the centre of eyes,
Squeezed by silence,
Seeks out the line with his feet,
Sooths his hands along his uniform,
Gently drums the ball against the floor,
Then measures the waiting net,
Raises the ball on his right hand,
Balances it with his left,
Calms it with fingertips,
And then through a stretching of stillness,
Nudges it upward.
Slides up and out,
Plays it coy,
Until every face begs with unsounding screams-
Right before ROAR-UP
Dives down and through.
About the Poem
In this poem the poet focuses upon his subject to
give us a vivid picture of the last few moments in
a basketball game.
Find out the following:
1. In which lines does the writer set up the
situation? What does the poet say?
2. Point out the line where the tension is most
felt. What is happening now?
3. How do you see the stillness?
4. What does the repetition of "And then" pro-
vide for the reader?
5. Is there any other circumstance hinted at
beyond the immediate incident? Support your re-
6.: Some writers present an incident for its
own sake rather than for its significance in relation
to other events. What then do you think is the pur-
pose of this poem?
In many cases, writers do look at events in a larger
context. They do it in the way you may step back
to see a picture you are drawing.
The whole idea is that you want to get a better look
It is so good to know when you: are doing either of
the strategies in your own writing. Keep up the
good work in writing for your reader to want to read
more of you.
Writing a letter originating from a business
Today we'll continue to tell you about the business
letter format and letter style.
1. The Heading: The parts and functions of the
a) Letterhead (name of organisation or company,
address, and telephone number) and date line sup-
ply all information that the reader needs to answer
a letter all on the top right hand;
b) Date Line states the date when the letter is writ-
ten (consisting of the year, month, and day)
2. The Opening: The parts of the opening are the
inside address (the name and address of the ad-
dressee) and the salutation. The functions of the
opening are to:
a) direct the letter to a specific individual company,
department, or whatever; and
b) greet the reader
3. The Body: The body is theihmost important part
of the letter. The writer makes every effort to get
his or her thoughts across todhe reader. It con-
tains the message; and may include a subjectline.
a. The Subject Line precedes the message
and gives the reader advance notice of what the
letter is about. This can be underlined upper and
lower-case letters centred in the liness. The word
subject can introduce the line, but it has to be fol-
lowed by a colon.
b. The Message is the body of the whole let-
ter. Give the body really good attention for it needs
to be both purposeful and meaningful to both the
writer and the reader. Give i at least two para-
4. The Closing: The business letter carries a
complementary closing which is expressed differ-
ently from the usual closing of the friendly letter.
Match the tone of the complementary close with
that of the salutation as closely as possible. You
may use a formal Respectfully yours or an infor-
mal Best regards.
5. The Writer's Signature: The handwritten sig-
nature of the person who has written the letter.
Sentence construction: Relationship of Cause
Let us look at some cause relationships.
"Because" is used to show a cause relation-
ship, and "as" is also used in the same way.
Another common conjunction is "since", which,
like "as", can introduce either clauses of time
Look at the following examples:
I have not seen him since his father died. (time)
Since he did not keep his appointment, I have not
seen him. (cause)

9our subject in order to see it as part of a larger from'the mairn.caause,by a jomma when they pre-
Fattern. cede it but not when th e! follow it ..
"For" is regarded asia co-coordinating conjunction
and should not be used to introduce a subordinate
clause. Notice the difference between:
They seemed ill at ease; for their eyes were wide
They seemed surprised because their mouths
were wide open.
Find the subordinate clauses of cause and say
what word each clause modifies.
1. Father Francis had not liked asking for leave, as
there was always so much work for everyone, but
he had not been very well of late and he had been
ordered to go.
2. "If you are asked to teach a child to draw ani-
mals, how would you begin?"
3. "I would teach him first to draw animals because
that is what a child thinks about and likes."
4. I only bring up this matter because you seem
worried by it; but I think I understand why it is so.
The Relationship of Purpose
He got to the dentist's early. His purpose (aim or
intention) was to have plenty of time to face the
The commonest and neatest way of showing a
connection of purpose between two ideas is to use
They left early in order to have plenty of time.
They left early so as to have plenty of time
They left early to have plenty of time.
It is however, possible to have a subordinate ad-
verbial clause of purpose.
They left early so that they would (mighty) have
plenty of time...
Very many relationships of this kind can be ex-
pressed as either cause or purpose without very
much difference in meaning. In the above example
we may say:
They left early because they wanted to have plenty
But it is not possible to express all relation-
ships of cause as relationships of purpose.
We can say:
Because they left early, they had plenty of time ...
Their leaving early can be the reason for their hav-
ing time, but it could not possibly be the purpose
As usual in adverbial clauses a comma is placed
between a preceding subordinate clause and the
main clause, but not usually between a main clause
and a subordinate clause that follows it.
Change the following clauses of cause into
clauses of purpose.
a) They left earl" because they wanted to reach
their destination I 4fore nightfall.
b) Work should Iways be carefully read over be-
cause careless errors spoil otherwise excellent
c) Because he wanted q ,have something good

The availability, of improved tomato varieties and
the demand for quality fruits have encouraged
farmers and agricultural researchers to investigate
the technique of pruning and different staking methods
to enhance crop production to supply the growing market
demand for tomatoes both in Guyana and overseas.
Pruning is the removal of
dead or unWanted branches
or parts of a plant, allowing
the plant to regularize its
size and crop load.
Unlike other plants, tomato
for the first month directs all
the sugar it produces towards
the production of new leaves.
During this stage, tomato plants
grow very rapidly, doubling
their size every 12 to 15 days.
Eventually, the plants make
more sugar than the single grow-
ing tip can use, which signals
the plant to make new branches
and to flower. This usually hap-
pens after 10 to 13 leaves have
expanded, at which time the
plant is 30 to 45 cm tall. In the
next few weeks, the entire char-
acter of the tomato plant
changes. If unsupported, the in-
creasing weight of filling fruit
and multiple side branches
forces the plant to lie on the
ground. Once the main stem is
horizontal, there is an increased
tendency to branch. A vigorous
indeterminate tomato plant can
easily cover a 1 by 1 m area
with as many as 10 stems, each
1 to 1.5 m long. This creates a
haven for disease and pest in-
festation, poor management of
fruit production and low pro-
If the plant is allowed
to lie on the ground, or
there is dense vegeta-
tion, many of the leaves
are forced into perma-
nent shade significantly
reducing the amount of
sugar they produce. If
a leaf uses more sugar
than it can produce, a
layer of abscission cells
develops between the:
main stem and the leaf
petiole; eventually the
leaves yellow and
drops. Of course,
sloughed-off leaves are
replaced by new ones,
but time is wasted.
Prostrate plants get around to
fruit production two or three
weeks later than a pruned and
staked plant. Most of the fruits
they produce are on the small
side, and tend to come in one
big, late harvest.
A properly pruned and sup-
ported single-stem tomato plant

presents all of its leaves to the
sun. Most of the sugar pro-
duced is directed to the devel-
oping fruit, since the only
competition is a single growing
tip. The result is large fruits
that are steadily produced. If
more stems are allowed to de-
velop, some of the precious
sugar production is diverted
from fruit to multiple growing
tips. Fruit production, al-
though slowed, never stops.
The result is a nearly continu-
ous supply of.fruits through-

stems means more but smaller

dry off faster, so bacterial and fungal pathogens have less
opportunity to spread. Soil is less liable to splash up onto
staked plants. The bottom line: Upright plants have fewer
problems with leaf spots and fruit rots because their leaves
stay drier and free from pathogen-laden soil.
As a tomato grows, side shoots, or suckers, form in the
crotches, or axils, between the leaves and the main stem. If left
alone, these suckers will grow just like the main stem, produc-
ing flowers and fruit. Suckers appear sequentially, from the bot-
tom of the plant up. The farther up on the plant a sucker de-
velops, the weaker it is, because the sugar concentration gets
lower as you move up the plant. On the other hand, side stems
arising from below the first flower cluster, although stronger,
compromise the strength of the main stem. For a multi-stemmed
plant, your aim is to have all stems roughly the same size, al-
though the main stem should always be stronger, because it has
to feed the entire plant for the next five or six months
The way you choose to train and prune your tomato plants
will affect how you space your plants, as well as the best
method of support. There are two ways to deal with a sucker
that isn't destined to become a stem. The simplest is to pinch
it off entirely; not surprisingly, this is called "simple prun-
ing." This should be done when the sucker is still small and
succulent. Grab the base of it between your thumb and index
finger and bend it back and forth. The sucker should snap off,
producing a small wound, which will heal quickly. Avoid cut-
ting the sucker with a knife or scissors, because the resulting
stump can become easily infected. Once a sucker becomes too
tough and leathery to snap off, however, you'll have to use a
In Missouri pruning, you remove just the tip of the sucker
by pinching, letting one or two leaves remain. The advantage is
that the plant has more leaf area for photosynthesis and to pro-
tect developing fruit from sun-scald. The disadvantage is that
new suckers inevitably develop along the side stems, adding to
your future pruning chores.
Missouri pruning is necessary when things have gotten out
of hand. When you're dealing with large suckers, it's better to
pinch off just the tip than to cut off the whole thing close to
the main stem. For one thing, if disease hits, it's farther away
from the main stem. And for another, removing just the grow-
ing tip is less of a shock to the plant than removing a foot or so
of side stem.
Once flowering commences, all tomato vines must be tied
to their supports. Although vigorous, the plants are also easily
damaged. Take care in how you tie them and what you use.
Cloth strips work well as long as they're not too old and thread-
bare. Twine should be at least
1/8 inch thick, or else it can cut
into the tomato stems.
S There are two types of
ties. Training ties direct plant
growth upwards, and support-
S * r ing ties keep it there. The top

Leader, is very succulent and
easily snapped; it needs to be

a short piece of twine around
Sr the middle of the leader, cross
it over on itself, and loosely tie
it to the support. The result-
S' ing figure-eight tie reduces the
chance the tender stem becom-
ing bruised by rubbing against the support.
Fruit will form along this stem. If left to the devices of
the loose training ties, the weight of the fruit will pull the
ties down the stake. Eventually, the stem will bend over
and crease. Luckily, as the stem matures, it toughens; by
the time fruit develops, the stem can tolerate a tighter tie.
To support a fruit cluster as it fills and gains weight, loop
a longer piece of twine, 30to 45 cm, around the stem just
above the fruit cluster, creating a sling. Then I gently pull
it up to take the weight off the stem. I wrap the twine twice
around the stake, and firmly tie it to the stake 15 to 25 cm
higher, than the point of attachment to the vine. To keep
the tie fromslipping. knot it underneath the point where
the sling meets the stake.

How to Administer
TO OPEN your dog's mouth,
place your left hand over the
top of the nose bridge and let
the fingers and the opposing
thumb squeeze the areas
behind the canine teeth. A

his jaw, he will be biting that

and dissolve the content, then it
is easier to get the dog to
swallow the liquid. Well, in
most cases that is not true, for
the simple reason that the
tablets/capsules usually are
distasteful to the dog. Another
reason for not opening a capsule
or dissolving a tablet is that they
are protective contains which
allows for a delayed release of
the active ingredient of the pill
when it reaches the intestine. In
other words, the makers of the
pill do not wish for the active
ingredient to hit the stomach

absorbed in the stomach.
Some people advocate
putting the whole tablet/

usually the dog has lost its

that's why the vet has

Moreover, dogs have the
ability to eat the food and
