MEDICAL personnel cur-
rently here on a three-week
humanitarian mission from
the US have expressed
amazement that in spite of
the many hardships posed by
skyrocketing global energy
and food prices, there is no
evidence of malnutrition
among the locals they have
seen so far.
They say that even with the
price of food being a "big issue"
in nearly every country of the
region, the nutritional status
here is high when compared to
that of citizens in some parts of
the world which they Inbel as
'seriously compromised."
Based on his observation in
Linden and Ituni where the 44-
member team is currently en-
gaged in providing free medical
care to residents there, team -
leader Colonel Martin Ridge
told the Guyana Chronicle
Thursday:~ "Nutrition seems to
be good here in Guyana, and
people seem to be taking care of

first time he has returned to
Guyana since he left for the US
with his parents in 1987.
He said that since arriving
here two weeks ago, he has.
come across many of his old
friends and classmates who are
all proud of what he is doing.
He noted the excitement of see-

years. "This is a dream for me.

'Fine-Man' warns

THE police said last night
they are investigating reports
that the notorious 'Fine-
Man', alias Rondell Rawlins,
has threatened to wreak
havoc on the city streets.
According to the police, the
threat was conveyed by way of a
text message sent to Agriculture
Minister, Mr. Robert Persaud
around 18:55h on Friday, in which
the sender claimed to be Rondell
Rawlins called 'Fine-Man'.
The police said in a release

thatithe sender indicated that the
message was intended for either
Minister Persaud or President
Jagdeo, and that the gist of it
was that Rawlins and his gang
were planning to "cause misery
in Regent Street" yesterday.
The message went on to state,
the police said, that Rawlins did
not care whether he lived or died,
as 'Tots of life will done there too,"
meaning that the body-count from
the planned genocide would be

What is however puzzling
about the message, is the part
where it says that "... the 'Sec-
retary of State' must stop wast-
ing time in Linden as Rondell
Rawlins and his gang members
were in an undisclosed area."
The police, however, said

that its investigations have
unearthed that the text mes-
sage was sent from an IP ad-
dress used by the local daily,
Kaieteur News, and that sev-
eral staff members have been
questioned and have given

PALMYRA, Missouri
(Reuters) The crest of the
swollen Mississippi River
moved relentlessly down-
stream on Saturday as volun-
teers manned sandbagged
levees, nursed hopes and
coped with the costs of the
worst U.S. Midwest flooding
in 15 years.
"At times like these you
don't know whether to cry or
laugh. But here in the Midwest
we tend to favor the latter," said
Charlotte Hoerr, who with her
husband Brent farms land not
far from the river in this small
Missouni town.

The violent rush overcame
more than two dozen levees this
week, submerging small towns
and vast stretches of prime farm-
land as the nation's most impor-
tant river absorbed the runoff of
torrential rains that put many
Iowa towns under water last
week. No levees were reported
breached on Friday night.
The Midwest flooding and
storms blamed for 24 deaths
since late May have caused
damage in the billions of dollars
and are expected to push U.S.
and world food prices higher.
Up to 5 million acres may
have been lost to just-planted
crops at the heart of the world's

top grain and food exporter.
Prices for corn, cattle and hogs
all set records this week due to
the floods, as a world economy
already slammed by inflation
from soaring energy prices ab-
sorbed the blow.

The spillage onto the
Mississippi's vast flood plain
covered thousands of acres of
crops. But several days of dry
weather this week cut water
flows, as did the levee

IT IS quite puzzling that It should have taken four
days for the main opposition PNCR and the Private
Sector Commission to come forward with their sepa-
rate statements of condemnation of last week's
shocking, outrageous arson attempt at the National
Cultural Centre (NCC). Still, It is better late than
Their reactions--with the PNCR's stuck in char-
acteristic double-speak-followed an appeal by
Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr Roger Lun-
cheon, who felt it necessary to call for public con-
demnation of the sinister plan to start a fire at the
NCC-one of the ma or centres of activities for

had forthrightly denounced that criminal move as "a
senseless attack" and explained how it had frus-
trated a scheduled postponement of a talent show

In hres planned attempt at destruction by arson of
the NCC, where a bombing device was discovered
was all the more worrying since It had been pre-
ceded by a daring drive-by shooting at the building
housing the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport
where workers are deeply engaged In planning ar-
ran ements for CARIFESTA X.
Failure, or sheer disinterest by representative in-
dependent voices to Immediately and uncondition-
ally condemn that terroristic shooting act at the Min-
istry of Culture, evidently designed to spread fear,
may well have embolden those with criminal intent,
as displayed by the arson attempt at the NCC.
In the circumstances, It is not unreasonable
to assume an agenda connection with anti-national
forces seeking to sabotage Guyana s hosting of
CARIFESTA X to satisfy a narrow, divisive political

from any involvement with the attempted destruction
by arson of the NCC. Mr. Corbin would, however, be
aware that his party's dilemma has evidently re-
suited from the anti-government statements
and demonstrations that had unmistakably linked
cooperation on the hosting of CARIFESTA X with
some demands on the PPPC administration.
Truth is, there are elements at large in this
country--located not only in the official opposition
parties--whose hatred for the Guyana Government
runs so deeply--that while they may not be active
participants in illegal activities, including drive-by
shootings and arson attempt, they would really have
no tears to shed if CARIFESTA X could fall victim to
orchestrated hysteria. This self-serving hatred flies
in the face of repeated popular support in favour of
legitimate governance.
But for such elements and forces patriotism
and a sense of national pride have long been
eroded by opportunistic, divisive politics mixed with
a depressing level of arrogance. Aspects of this
sickness are located, in varying degrees, not just
within the major parties.
The problems have been made worse by rabid
opportunistic, racist politics and cultural slander that
at times flow from the agendas of a few social/po-
litical organizations which have mushroomed within

Ch anders a true

Sa assador of

Guyanese resilience

IT is about time that some-
one put a stop to this gutter
flow of racism spewed by
Rockford Burke in New York.
Burke and his one-min orga-
nization the Cakibbean
Guyana Institute tfor Democ-
racy claims that he is a de-
fender of democraacyCbut in-
stead he fuelS'the flii-Wof ra-
cial discrimination. It seems
Burke wants to be the new
oppositional leader. ~Watch
out Corbin. ""
This man cillfd Burke re-
fuses to accept evid'n'ce that
rnany notable African; bbyanese
carry influential' positions in
Guyana; and his refusal to see
that these African Guyanese in-
fluence Guyana's development,
Is a gross insult' tb the 'compe-
rence level and the il ency of
these African Guyane .

Again, Burke refuses to ac-
cept evidence that the Jagdeo
Government is not a uni-race
Government.Burke should check
the statistics, and he will see
how wrong he is.
If the Jagdeo Government
is uni-race as Burke and his
henchman Clarence Ellis claim,
then the Jagdeo Government
would be comprised of all In-
dians. The world can come
and check that this is not the
case. But what is clear is that
in order to be a good racist,
you have to reject evidence.
And that is exactly what
Burke and Ellis are doing.
The Guyanese people at
home and in the Diaspora
should see them for what they
are, racists to the core.


CHILD killer a source of
grave concern" according
to the Alliance For
Change (AFC). The AFC
makes it sounds like it is
a technical social problem,
but is it really?
What is so difficult to
understand that a person
calls for a discussion on the
so called "armed struggle."
Some adult people bought
into his/her arguments and
took up arms. Then they
went into a village.
The villagers tried to
keep them at arms length but
once they were in the village
they became "respected
members of the community"
because they carried a gun
and were supposed to be
fighting for "a just cause".
Then, these adullts' used
some of the children as look-
outs. Those that were of
benefit to the adult gunmen
were showered with praises
and given the BIG GUN to
hold. This made the children
feel important so much so
that even the relatives re-
moving these children from
the contact of the gunmen
was not enough to prevent
them keeping in contact with
the gunmen.
Then the gunmen give
the children a gun so that
they can let-off a couple of
rounds and those that were
able to wield the gun were
enrolled in the gang as child
Once they were enrolled
they were not able to come
and go as they please and
some moved out of their par-
ents' homes,
I am sure that the adult
gunmen spreading around
monies played some part in
this. So the children see that
they can use the big gun to
.get wealth -that-they-can-give
to their parents to belp them
have a better life.
The problem was not
the lifestyle. The problem
was the fool who wanted a
"discussion on .armed
struggle". He/She obviously
did not comprehend what
he/she was doing. If he/she
claims that Indian Guyanese
have the real wealth in
Guyana had his/her call been
heeded then I shudder to
think of the consequences of
what would have happened.
It was imperative to
break apart the "armed
struggle" as an armed
struggle by African '
Guyanese would have led to
an armed resistance by In-
dian Guyanese (as the armed
struggle in Northern Ireland
has done with the IRA and
Loyalist paramilitary).
The masterminds do not
care about any of this. They
would like for Indian
Guyanese to pick up a gun
and retaliate as then they

would go to the UN and
complain about how their
minority was being killed a
bit like the AFC is doing.
This was basically the gist ofl
Hinckson call. He was tell-
ing people that should Indian
Guyanese retaliate then the
army would step in to sup-
port the African Guyanese
SBut Hinckson was incor-
rect. He actually believes
that the army is a powerful
organisation without
realising that a force of 2,
500 personnel is not really a
match for the populace be-
coming militarised.
The only reason that I
ask for the army to be bal-
anced is because-some
people- share the erroneous
beliefs of Hinckson in thal
they believe that the army is
"powerful" when in fact it is
not as powerful as theq
How come the AFC i!

what am trying to say wth

that a young Guyanese

ated waves within the
Guyanese population by
means of their prodigious ~tal-

'dedication and tremendous disci-

have provoked, the challenge for ALL stakeholders, in
the wake of the dnive-by shootings at the Ministry of

Shocked at teenager's

opinion is in a mess...the
streets have overgrown

pecially when one enters

are so many bushes
around the place and of
course, this breeds mos-
quitoes. There is also the
issue of the traffic lights.
I believe it is a good thing
that we do have them but
we need more honest po-
lice officers who would do
their job and not stop you
and give you a hassle be-
cause the y want so me
So many bad drivers
are in Guyana and they
have no respect for other
road users and are very
abusive when you have
cause to speak to them
about their bad driving.
In addition, we need
.to penalise persons for
littering the place but
having said that we also
need to have proper gar-
bage dispos al b in s
around the city and else-

I ventured to the
Father's Day lime at the
creek on the highway
and I had great diffi-
culty finding a bin to
dispose of my garbage...
I placed it in the car
and disposed of it when
I got home Ma yb e, we
need to have the per -
sons who are promoting
su ch events be re spon-
sible for cleaning the
place after the activity
is completed. The thing
is that lots of the se
persons would not litter
when they are in other
jurisdictions but when
,they comp home they
feel frteeto do same.
SI really do not think
at th-is stage we are
read y to `host the
CARIFE-STA for the
foregoing. In addition,
if you want to use the
washroom at the nir -
port, there is no liquid
soap sior toilet paper...
so you may want to do
your stuff before ven-
turing there. It is dis-
gusting that in 2008 we
are hosting such a ma-
jor event and we seem
not to be able to get
the very basic things in
order. Come on my

much better.

It is perhaps fitting that this
event will be hosted in that Lee-

1965, the Caribbean Free Trade
Area (CARIFTA), the precursor
to the inauguration of
CARICOM in July 1973 .at

seamless regional economy in

seems to be in jeopardy of
realisation as projected. More

terest in regional integration,
Apart, that is, from heaping
criticisms on governments--un-
til they also become part of the
changing ruling establishment.
Arrangements for the sum-
mit, which begins on July 1, are
being finalised in a climate of
declining optimism for the re-
gional integration movement's
capacity and commitment to
overcome the global economic
challenges currently impacting,
to varying degrees, on every
Community partner state.
In this context, it would
have come as quite a surprising
expression of disillusionment
with the functioning of

Shaykh Khalid Yosin Chairman of the Islamic information Trust (IIT), the Islamic Information Network (llN) and one of islam's spiritual leaders will visit Guyana from
June 26 July 3, 2008. Shaykh Khalid Yesin embroced islam in 1965 with the late Shaykh Daud A~hmed Faisal of the Islamic Mission of America. He has studied Figh us-5unnah,
Aqeedah, Ahkaam, memorization of Qu'ran. Islamic History and the Arabic Language and has dedicated the lost 15 years to removing the misconcephions about Islam and Muslims.
Best known for his community, leadership and empowerment television series, Shaykh Khalid Yasin has delivered lectures in over 37 countries and several hundred students from

pact will affect the developing

allel to the global economy's decel-

for Economic and Social Affairs of +w
the United Nations Social and Eco-

Prospects 2006."
Ocampo asserted that the
world economy experienced an
economic slow down since 2004: global investment anemia disrupting
global economic growth rate, creating a disorderly adjustment of mac-
roeconomic imbalances; higher oil prices of about $60 per barrel;
the crash of house prices, especially in the U.S. negatively impact-
ing global consumption and demand; high unemployment growth;
and many developing countries' experience of structural unemploy-
ment and underemployment impacting poverty reduction. The U.S.
factory activity is at an all-time low, and may be heading for a re-
cession; the European Union also is experiencing a slowdown in its
economic activity. Surely, these factors will impose a greater im-
pact on small, poor, and vulnerable economies.
And of course, we can speak of another shock manifested
through globalization, bringing the following: increasing pressures
to liberalize multilateral trade; the economic stranglehold that the
World Trade Organization has on poor, small, and vulnerable econo-
mies; constant migration of skilled professionals; and the liberaliza-
tion of the European sugar regime with drastic sugar price cuts, ef-
fectively general erosion of long-standing trade preferences of the
European Union ~(EU). For Guyana, this drastic price cut may pro-
duce a yearly loss corresponding to 5.1 percent of GDP and 5.4 of
merchandize exports.
We have no choice, but to understand and address the im-
pact of market fundamentals of the developed world on small
poor, and vulnerable economies.

SIGNIFICANT adverse external economic shocks over the last
few decades have retarded economic and social development
in the Caribbean. For many of the Caribbean countries, ro-
bust responses in alleviating the impact of these shocks have
been slow and untimely.
We have no choice, but to understand and address the impact
of market fundamentals of the developed world on small poor, and
vulnerable economies.
And as if these shocks were not enough, on Wednesday of last
week, oil prices topped the $100 per barrel mark in commodities
trading. This development has to be a concern, as rising oil prices
affect everyone, in the developing and the developed world. The
Caribbean already is reeling from a high food import bill, and food
prices are expected to soar even further. Food security has to be
the watchword; and so the Jagdeo Initiative in Agriculture now car-
ries greater meaning for all "Caribbeanists."
But how did we get where we are today with fluctuating oil
prices over last few decades? The U.S. Energy Information Admin-
istration (EIA) presents five reasons for this state of affairs: (1)
Strong economies, as China, USA, and the Middle East, require
strong demand for oil, and this demand will continue to increase in
2008; (2) there is a limited supply of oil; OPEC reduced produc-
tion in 2006 and 2007; and production outside of OPEC failed to
meet the increasing demand for oil; the EIA believes that demand
will outstrip supply in the first few months of 2008; (3) the Middle
East with its huge oil reserves faces tensions that create uneasiness
over the reliability of oil supplies; and so a risk premium is added
into the price; (4) the falling dollar the dollar is the currency of

choice for trading in oil; rising prices would not have such an im-
pact for countries with currencies that appreciate against the dol-
lar, and so high demand would be sustained; but for countries pro-
ducing oil, the falling dollar translates into less purchasing power;
and, therefore, may be inclined to reduce their supplies, in order to
maintain the existing high prices; (5) speculation, too, has aided the
price fluctuations.
You may recall there were the two oil price increases in the
latter part of the 20th Century; these huge increases induced some
countries to raise taxation, conduct experiitients' with the exchange
rate, and intensify borrowing.
Another external shock came in the 1980s manifested
through a deceleration in the global economy and the debt cri-
sis. Guyana's response was to seek multilateral adjustment
assistance from the World Bank and the International Mon-
etary Fund. The People's Progressive Party Civic (PPPC) Gov-
ernment in 1992 inherited an external US$2.1B debt (now about
US$700M); it took Guyana about 10 years to reach financial
viability. And so clearly in the early 1990s, balancing debt ser-
vice payments and meeting the needs of the poor constituted
a great challenge.
And now there is the credit crisis in the U.S. where significant
problems of liquidity, credit availability, ~and risk spreads exist.
Roderigo Rato, outgoing Managing Directodr o~f the International
Monetary Fund (IMF), believes that the U;S.credit crisis will have
global impact, forcing many countries to further review their bud-
gets. Rato argues that notwithstanding the fact that the credit crisis
originated in the financial markets of the develoffed' world, its im-

Stop this madness a

VERY SELDOM do I allow
my sense of dignity and re-
straint, to be overridden by
emotional outburst and an-
ger. But, try as I may, it was
unavoidable, as I processed
the information regarding
the attempted arson upon the
National Cultural Centre.
What kind of mihds would
device such atrocities?
But I should not be sur-
prised. For it is becoming much
clearer now that there are
people living in this country,
whose only passion and assign-
ment it would seem is to bring
this nation and its peoples into
a state of total ruins. People
who some how have lost every
sense of nationhood and patrio-
tism. People whose souls seem
to be consumed by a diabolic

force to get power, irrespective
of the cost; irrespective of who
gets hurt and how many causali-
ties fall in the wake of this in-
sane crusade. ,
And just for clarification
sake, I refer not here to the ones
who planted the devices, or the
ones running around with guns
wrecking havoc in our nation.
These are not the real evil do-
ers. They are culpable, no
doubt, but the real perpetrators
of evil against this nation, are
those who give commands and
send messages subliminally, in
speech and conduct, that in-
forms the base ideologies of
these foot soldiers. They are
those referred to in the scrip-
tures as reviserss of evil".
Those who teach the young and
gullible to hate another on the

basis of ethnicity and political
affiliation. These, my friends are
the real enemies of state. : 11
The irresponsible behav-
ior of some that weketeenii ts
national leaders, iii ptiblic
pronouncements and stitte-
ments that are c~learl at-
tempts to incite confusion
and public disorder, is what is
directly responsible for the
recent attacks on the Cultulre
Ministry and the National
Cultural Centre. .
What level of logibs, w~ould
justify the burniirg doqvr. ob rhe
premier institution~f~r ateR-et-
pression of arts and culture in
our nation?
Such an attempts notijust
an assault upon the institution
of creative arts and culture, but
also upon the historical legacy,

social stability, and national de-
velopment of this country.
This madness must stop.
Leaders, who put their politi-
cal pursuits ahead of na-
tional stability and security,
must be made to answer for
any criminal act perpetrated
by others which can be
linked to statements made by
national leaders that are
deemed to be inciting.
Who are the real casualties
of this political madness? Not
the young, gullible, gun touting
foot soldiers of these political
Not the families of the

privileged political elites. No!
We are the real casualties. Those
of us who have worked hard are
working tirelessly to preserve
what ever little good is left in
our country, for our children
and their children. Those of us
who watch politicians destroy-
ing our country and do nothing
and say nothing, we are the ca-
So why should we allow
others who obviously do not
have the same intensity of pas-
sion for the betterment of our
nation, to burn, plunder and de-
stroy what our forefathers have
sacrificed to give us?

It is unacceptable, and it
must be repudiated.
It is time to call our poli-
ticians into account for utter-
ances that can harm the very
future of a nation that we all
love. This madness must stop.

On the particular issue of an "integrated judiciary" as exists for the OECS, it would be helpful to
learn, for instance, what initiatives have been taken by the very articulate Vincentian Prime Minister to
ensure that his own country moves in the direction to access the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as
its final'appellate court.
Another issue of relevance is this cry so often made within the OECS, and now also repeated by
Gonsalves--for 'special and differential' treatment by CARICOM for disadvantageous or less devel-
oped economies as exist in that sub-region.
For a start, commitment to such an approach has not only been provided for in the re-
visedl CARICOM Treaty. A clear example of recognition and implementation of 'special and
differential' treatment for the OECS countries is the economic assistance being allocated by
the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) on a regular basis with full cooperation of the rest
In accordance with the CDB's charter, "special and urgent" attention to the needs of the OECS has
been the norm, as I understand it, and as evidenced by, for example, the reality of some sixty eight (68)
percent of allocations from the bank's Special Development Fund having flowed to that sub-region.
There is, therefore, need for a more objective assessment of the status quo in relation to
OECS when comparisons are being made~ven in the marketing of the laudable goal of OECS
economic union which could inspire efforts for the realisation of the CARICOM Single Mar-
ket and Economy (CSME) for which a proper update on the implementation processes is clearly

service degradation.

contrast to the EU experience, where the Caribbean Community is concerned, "even in the
long term there would be no 'independent' Caribbean currency, since whatever emerged would
itself be tied to the UJS dollar..."

That was a useful reminder from Davies whose presentation topic, interestingly enough, focused
on: "Is the Caribbean ready for Prime Time?" and of which more reporting later.
In reference to the Vincentian Prime Minister, there is, of course, some merit in his harsh criticism
of political decision-making in CARICOM though his contemptuous dismissal of what he views as the
Community's "ramshackle political-administrative apparatus..." would prompt discussions beyond
next week's summit in St. John's.
The truth is even more painful to note. It is that Gonsalves, as a Head of Government within
the OECS and the wider Community, has been part of this "ramshackle political-administra-
tive apparatus since his becoming Prime Minister in 2001 and, therefore, like his counterparts
cannot escape blame-sharing for failing to exercise initiatives in the quest for solutions*

weapons remain

I0 Cus of t he

SPEAKING at his weekly post-Cabinet media briefing yes-
terday. Head of the Presidential Secretariat. (HPS) and
Cabinet Secrretary, Dr. Roger Luncheon said Government
will continue to focus on the issue of the more than 200
army weapons from the 1970s that cannot be accounted for.
The HPS wrar re~sponding to a queryn by one media etnurr
as to the status of this matter following previous announce-
ments by the administration that an inquiry would be launched
into the issue.
"It would remain a focus of the administration because
the weapons have been identified; the persons in whose
control and possession they were have also been identi-
fied. This is not the AK-47s that disappeared from Camp
Ayanganna...why the focus has to be maintained is be-
cause we know precisely which weapons they were, their
names, their number and we know precisely in whose pos-
session and control they were, we know everything," the
Cabinet Secretary added.
He explained that it is not possible that writh that kind of
anforman~on that the investigation could be thrown aside.
..Most people would admire havulg such clues to w~ork- with
on an investigation' he stated.
Earlier this year, Parsident Bharrat Jagdeo announced
that an investigation would be launched into the large num-
ber of missing weapons from that period when it was found
that the weapons wear not returned to the Army. The an-
nouncement followed enquiries after one of these weap-
ons was discovered by the police following a shootout be-
tween criminals and the police at Mahaicony. It was re-
ported that the suspected robbers fled the scene leaving
some of their weapons (GINA)

LAST week, like many people, I watched in profound shock
as Tom Brokaw of NBC announced the death of his colleague,
Tim Russert, anchor of the 'Meet The Press' programme,
which is aired every Sunday on NBC. As an ardent follower of
US politics, I have, over the years, develogi~ed a tremendous
amount of respect for Russert's professionalism in his work,
particularly his interviews.
As a hiiyman in the fiekl of journaisim, it was easy for me torbe
impressed by the rhsults;i fa typical Russert interview. Waltching
Russert grill an intervriewee was somewhat likeivatching~a court-
room drama with a top-flight prosecutor in action. It was my ex-
posure to him and his work which resulted in my seeing a journal-
ist post on television screen, actual excerpts of previous interviews
conducted by (a) particular interviewee(s).
For me, it was more ithan just a quotation: It was evidence of
that person's, usually a politician, position on a particular issue at
one point in time; it thus held that person accountable to their
word. If it were that their position had shifted, a strong defense to
the change would have been required that was a priceless jour-
nalistic technique in a country where politicians invariably change
views, depending on the political, financial or other benefits.
A recent New Yorker tribute to Russert, by David Remnnick.
featured the following excerpt from an interview with Al Gore on
the issue of abortion.
RUSSERT: When do you think life begins?
GORE: I favour the Roe vs.Wade approach, but let me just say,
Tim, I did...
RUSSERT: Which is what? When does life begin?
GORE: Let me just say, I did change my position on the issue
of federal funding, and I changed it because I came to understand
more from women women think about this differently than men.
RUSSERT: But you were calling fetuses innocent human life,
and now you don't believe life begins at conception. I'm just try-
ing to find out: When do you believe life begins?
GORE. Well, look, the Roe vs Wade decision proposes an an-
swer to that question...
RUSSERT: Which is?
The interview above was conducted in 2000 with then Demo-
cratic presidential nominee, Al Gore on an issue on which the tradi-
tional Democratic pro-choice stance has hampered the party from
making inroads into conservative Republican strongholds. Al Gore
lost the Presidency that year.

Perhaps, the most remarkable thing for me however was
Russert's objectivity in conducting his work. He had a towering
reputation for this (objectivity) in his profession as a political jour
nalist, working in a sensitive profession, even against his reputa-
tion as someone who not only had democratic sympathies, a regis-
tered Democrat but also as someone who worked closely with late
Pat Moynihan, former Senator of New York, someone with an icoilic
stature in the Democratic party.
That objectivity seems to have brought Russert an uinparallged
amoimt of respect in his profes-
sion. Like many people, I have the
habit of watching 'Fox News' for
the specific purpose of complain- I
ing about the lack of objectivity
by conservative pundits like Sean :P-
Hannity of Hannity and Colmes,
who considered NBC a liberal
news cable network. It was there-
fore amazing to see, for example, .
'Fox News' competing with CNN
and NBC in their coverage of
Russert's passing. '
Another outstanding character-
istic of his was his ability to ef-
fectively balance his hectic profes- 4,
sional life with his family, a trib-
ute paid him by his many admir
ers; this was demonstrated in two .
books about his family, authored .
by him. This commendable qual-
ity is one which is worthwhile By Keith Burrowes
As Guyana addresses its journalistic issues, an article in
a Guyanese newspaper on an American media giant may seem
irrelevant, even as some American journalists are question-
ing whether his death Avas overblown in the media. But there
was a certain immediacy in the sense of loss that I felt when I
first heard of Russert's death that had nothing to do with the
subsequent media coverage. I take this opportunity to salute
someone whose work I respected greatly, and I can imagine
that Russert may now be interviewing the biggest politician
of them all.

By Tangerine Clarke

TWO prominent US-based Guyanese, former Ambassador to
South Africa, Mr. Leland Hazelwood, and Shanie Persaud, CEO
of El Dorado Media and Marketing have come together to form
an organization called the Guyanese American Business and
Professional Council (GABPC).
The entity was launched at a gala celebration on June 6 at the
Crown Plaza Hotel La Guardia, in Queens, New York in honour of
the~ president of the borough of Queens, Ms.Helen Marshall, who
was awarded for her outstanding contribution to the community.
The occasion was also used to pay tribute to Guyana's 42nd Inde-
pendence Anniversary.
Emceed by Vice President of Maxim Group, Valance Williams,
the gala commenced with the singing of the National Anthems of
Guyana and the US by Guyanese Trenton Mack and Shirley Harper,
The event brought out some of the biggest names in the busi-
ness community, and more than 100 people to savour a very mov-
ing programme that featured Guyana's Speaker of the National As-
sembly, Mr. Ralph Ramkarran, Chairman of the Linden USA Fund,
Dr Vincent Adams, and CEO of Young Americas Business Trust,
Mr. Roy Thomassen.
Following the welcome by Shanie Persaud, who is the
organisation's First Vice-President, Dr Thomas Auer, the second
vice-president, highlighted the importance of the grouping and the
amazing benefits it could bring to the community and Guyana.
One of GABPC's missions, it was learnt, is to facilitate, iden-
tify, expand and promote trade, investment and professional op-
portunities between both countries, and to encourage job creation
and technology development.
To this end, corporate giants like the New Parkway Hospital,
Mount Sinai Hospital of Queens, the New York Commercial Bank,
Queens Long Island Medical Group, and the Queens Chamber of
Commerce, have agreed to partner with the fledgling organization
to help it achieve its goals.
Dr Auer, who sees the formation of an organization such
as theirs as being a welcome opportunity to bring together the
people from both countries, said the presentation of an EKG
machine to the Linden Hospital was just the beginning of the

The ability to sense danger is
a life saving quality. We see
this lesson everywhere in na-
ture. Take the herd of ante-
lope grazing peacefully on
the sun-soaked plains of Af-
rica. Danger surrounds them.
They are delicacies
for...cheetahs and other car-
nivores prowling the plains
in search of fine dining. For
the antelope, staying alive is
a function for their ability to
sense danger and react
Perhaps you have seen a
documentary of this scene. A
herd of antelopes grazing cheer-
fully, seemingly unaware of the
of the lip-licking lion nearby in
the tall grass, stealthily stalking,
crafting his assault, contemplat-
ing the best attack route, the
timing, the target. Suddenly, the
peaceful colony becomes rest-
less. Heads dart up, ears twitch,
noses whiff the ominous scent,
alert eyes scan the horizon. A
few beasts begin to move, and
then suddenly, as the lion re-
mains hidden, the herd stam-
The outcome of this story
varies. Sometimes the antelope
dodges death, sometimes a com-
rade is taken. Whatever the case,
the herd's reaction limits the
potential for casualties and
makes the attack infinitely
tougher for the lion.
The lesson is, while it is the
act of running that reduces the
antelope's chances of being
mauled, that action is motivated
by a sense of crisis. Anyone
who hunts has witnessed this.

Sometimes even the faintest
sound ... of a human is enough
to arouse a sense of danger in a
deer that stirs it to fleece
crosshairs of a poised and po-
sitioned rifle.
In the animal world, life and
death are often separated by a
keen sense of crisis. How keen
is our sense of crisis? How
acutely do we perceive the dan-
gers facing our lives, our fami-
lies and our nation? Does an ac-
curate sense underpin your ac-
tions and drive your life for-
ward? Guyana like most of the
world faces catastrophic dangers
(knowingly or unknowingly)
that threaten our freedom, our
security our very survival.
Does this create within us a
sense of crisis deep that we are
motivated to learn how to es-
cape the danger?
Despite these dangers,
individuals and entire na-
tions have little sense of cri-
sis. Why? First, human na-
ture dislikes the truth when
it threatens to disrupt one's
own interest, desires, and
lifestyle. We will go to great
lengths to hide from the truth
or to colour it in our own
terms if the truth demands
that we act counter to our de-
A sense of crisis provides no
leeway for inaction. When a hu-
man is frightened or faces imme-
diate danger, the brain demands
fight or flight; A person will ei-
ther stay and fight, or quickly
take flight. Either way, the
sense of crisis demands a reac-
But with no sense of crisis,
no need is felt to react! The

Guyanese society thrives on in-
action, passivity and don't rock
the boat mentality. Moral de-
pravity is condoned in schools
and elsewhere.
Opposition by the opposi-
tion in an uncivil brawl for the
spot of powers against good
presidential decisions undermin-
ing both confidence and good
faith of many to move the na-
tion forward is displayed with-
out reservation and consider-
Having a weak sense of cri-
sis, or having none at all, leads
to passivity, procrastination
and weak solutions. When we
bury our heads in the sand, per-
sonally or as a nation, we ignore
the need to confront danger.
This individual and a collec-
tive lack of a sense of crisis is a
result of a culture of self-grati-
fication and pleasure. Wrapped
up in materialist and an unbal-
anced desire for Satisfying the
senses, our people have lost
touch with reality moral real-
This is a deadly state of
mind. An accurate state of
mind... is healthy and impor-
tant, nationally and individu-
ally. Like the antelope on the
run ... it can help deal with
danger before it strikes. A
sense of crisis is a precursor
to action; it is one of the fac-
tors that drive us to react, to
respond, and to act. Without
it passivity prevails while the
danger grows larger until
one day it explodes in our
faces. Ancient history has
shown us what happens when
people become consumed by
materialism and self-gratifi-

cation, and looses the capac-
ity to sense crisis. Floods,
droughts, famines, diseases,
invasion and destruction, eco-
nomic terror, governmental
oppression, racial blood shed,
minority massacre, poverty
through corruption, sexual
diseases, dread, drugs na-
tionwide depression, just to
name a few.
Take time to conduct an
honest, open-minded analysis
of this country's state, your
personal state of heart and
mind and how you have con-
tributed to what is happening.
Be,.prepared. The picture is
not pryty. As your mind
grows' more outward focused
and takes on a newly invigo-
rated sehise of crisis, you may
beMf~odiid with questions. Why
are'tlie dangers occurring? Can
theY be firvented? How can
yotubesc~ipe them? What hap-
pens after the crisis have come
and gone?
Be sure when these crisis
ari ethe~y will be questions.
Angwcers must be found!

'THE Directors and Members of the Environmental Commu-
nity Health Organisation (ECHO) have proposed the inclu.
sion of climate change as a theme for CARIFESTA X.
In a letter to the Minister of Youth and Sport, Dr Frank An-
thony, ECHO, noting that climate change is all about culture, sug-
gested that it could be a secondary theme, since the festival is all
about the promotion of the unique culture of the Caribbean.
In this~ regard, ECHO is recommending that two fundamental
issues be addressed:

phe) Howl much of Guyanese way of life would be lost to this
(2) How would climate change reshape life in the region?
Suggesting that Guyana and the region should give Guyana 'tan-
gible form', ECHO said that there can be no better time to do so
than at Carifesta X because-it provides an opportunity for Carib-
bean artists to interweave facts, ideas, thoughts, emotions, colour
and perspectives all together. It is of the view that this can help
inspire passion and stimulate change, while allowing Guyanese to
aufluence manh more people living beyond our national frontiers

Smock, who previously
worked on the President's Emer-
gency Plan for AIDS Relief
(PEPFAR) project, then referred
to as the USAIDS/Guyana
Trade and Investment Support
(GTIS), until he became in-
volved in efforts to promote na-

through the Bird Watching
Programme, now lives and works
in Brooklyn, New York as a con-
sultant. He's still actively in-
volved as well with GTIS and
the Guyana Bird Watching
Programme, Haralsingh said.

Turning his attention to the
book itself, which he said is the .
first of its kind to have. been pub-
lished, Haralsingh noted the im-
portance of such a tool to the
~development of tourism.
"Guide books are mediators,

forts to promote Guyana as an
international tourist destination,"
Nokta said, adding that for
Guyana's first travel guide to
have been done by Bradt is in-
deed an honour, since the com-

going as far back as the 70s, of
having traversed more than 100
destinations around the world in
search of new destinations, par-
ticularly off-the-beaten-track
ones like Guyana.
Noting that Bradt's phi-
losophy that 'adventurous
travel is more enjoyable if the
wishes of the local people are
taken into consideration' was
the framework within which
the local guide book was de-
veloped, Nokta said that in

Dear Sherry
I'v~e just started bee~ing someone I really like, and thing seem
to be going really well. though it's early days. Problem is, I'm get-
ting increasingly) worriedthat one of my friends is trying to steal
him from me. She's Imoksh my boyfriend longer than I have, so she
comes out writh us~ a loL;~t whenever she's around, I feel invisible
as she always starts fBclg about things she did with my boyfiend
before I appeared on the scene. I ahvays try to ture the shibject around,
but I find it very hard to compete with her, not only:because of her
bubbly personality, but also because she's incrediblyr attractive and
confdent. And in atny casedZ don't WANT to be in competition with
her! I don't want to.tnaket~a big issue out of this for fear of looking
like a bunny boilkwin fSront of my new man, but this business is
really getting me down. What can I do?

make you feel indelte. lifksure you can compete with her on the person-

come painfully aware, you can't re-write history, so there's simply nothing
you can do to ma~tchtherweth~ memories of beautifidl times spent with your
man. And, doesit~'rttEi~ittle;at just know it!
I must say, Llikteygow?-agittute -you're clearly determined to put up a

allow these twofold pals tech2ave their moment down memory lane. Don't

Dear Sherry
.I cheated on my boyfriend a few months ago and the guilt has
been gnawing at me. My boyfriend prides honesty above all else in
our relationship, so, in the spirit of being honest, I think I should
tell him. How do I go about it?

Let me start by telling you that men are different from womenz. For-
giveness is not usually on the cards for them. Reconsider telling him. I
understand the honesty thing, but you don't want to tell him because it's
.honest. If you were doing honest things all the time, you woukht't have
cheated; you want to tell because you feel guilty. Anyone who says they 're
honest 100% of the time usually are not.

This isn't a guilt that's better shared. If you've done wrong, and you
kn~ow it, and you are not inclined to cheat again, swallow the bitter pill and
become a better person because of it and never tell. He won t feel good;
he'll feel hulrtand that
guilt you thought to
assuage will loom

Dear Sherry
I've been with my current boyfriend for the past five years. We
have rio plans to be married, because he said he can't handle that
kind of responsibilty. My problem is I know he's been cheating on
me, 'Ib his credit, he's only done it when I was pregnant with our
daughter. But because we have a child, I would like for him to comn-
mit' to a more permanent relationship, but he says he's unsure. How.
do I get him to see we should be married now that we have a child?

What do you mean: 'To his credit, he 's only done it when I was preg-
nant?' Certainly, you cannot mean he cheated because you weren't able to
have sex with him? It's too late to tell you that you should never have
gotten pregnant with a man who has told you up fwnt he doesn't want
responsibility. Now, you have to watch oct for your daughter who cannot
make the decision about what type of family she is born into.

This man doesn't want to be married. I cannot imagine he wants to be
a father if he cheated on you after he made you pregnant. You are going to
have to be gmown up now because there's a TRUE child in the picture, as
opposed to you and your boyfriend who are only pretending. Youe need to
find whatever assistance you can to get your selfesteemned built up so you
rearlise youl need to leave this man and create a more positive life for you
and your child.

'Stagecoach' of 1939 is such
a film classic that took the West-
ern out of the typical reputation
gained by previous Western mov-
ies as simple entertainment filled
with common stereotypes of good
versus bad; cowboys and pioneers
against savage Indians; and heroes
and heroines of conventional moral
attitudes, behaviour, and character.
'Stagecoach' shattered all such
typical expectations and became in-
cluded in the list of the greatest
Westems ever made. Yet, it did this
in a manner that was subtle and
smooth while retaining all the out-
door danger and excitement we as-
sociate with Westemns.
The two leading roles in
'Stagecoach' present John
Wayne as the notorious bot-tem-
pered 'Ringo Kid', and Claire

humane prostitute working in firon-
tier towns. Wayrne, as 'Ringo',
broke out of jail and is on the hunt
for the killers of his father and
brother this being the sort of ma-
cho revenge motive that ute
normal in the American wild fron-
tier during the 19th Centurry. Claire
Trevor, who Wayne meets when
he hitches a ride with a stagecoach
canrying an assortment of diverse
and very interesting characters, is
gers, except Wayne apparently, for
the prostitute that she is. We are
made to realise this by the brilliant
visual method of behaviour, fash-
ion, and reserved silence John
Ford's direction brings to Claire
Trevar's firm yet tender portrayal
as an outcast by conventional s~
CY$oo' has a o~pel

thl artitcse o is -a for-
where each scn is coooe b
the sensitiverelationshipbetween
the camera and its subject. John
Wayne makes his first scene in the
film by being brought closer, in
dne takes, to th aea and it
is grips us because of the look of
surprise, and the sweat~ and dust
on his face. It is also the first real
introduction of John Wayne as a
'star', even though he had already
made over two dozen Westerns
T~he difference with his afnc
in 'Stagecoach', for wkic h e
ceived a mere $3,700 dollars, is
that for the fist time he was un-
der the direction of John Ford,
who would launch his career as a
serious actor with this film, be-
come close fiend and artistic col-
laborator, and goon tofeatuehim
in some of the finest Westems ever,
such as 'Fort Apache', 'She Woxe
a Yelow Ribbon', T Searchers',

become valuable to
us not only because
they may be good en-
tertainment, but be-
cause they reveal all the blind
biases and prejudices ~hu-
mans tuck within their social
structures and their racial
and cultural values. Another
important aspect of such
films may be their revelation
of real, profoundly awesome,
and mysterious landscapes of
the earth we inhabit


The stagecoach crossing Monument Valley during h im

and "Ibe Man Who Shot I~berty

S As with most of Ford's West-
emas, it isdiflicult to get aclearcu
definitive position, based on the
opinions of characters, on who is
bad~an-wh isgood; who is the
victim and who is the victor, who's
to blame and who's to be defended;
and who's socially respectable and
whos not What this tactic does is
make his Westems, such as 'Stage-
coach', exttremely interesting and
debate as human dramas. What
Ford does instead is show us indi-
vidual acts and behaviour ap-
proaches. This is how we judge the
character of various roles being
played; in situations, stories, and
ancoe within the fim's dura-
'Ihe overall mood of the film's
fast hour is one of menace caused
by the remote, strange, eenie wil-
demness on the border of Arizona
and Mexico where, in 1861, the
Iilm's time-period, the Aache chief

Geronimo had broken oult of a res-
ervation his people had beenpaed
in and begun amlarauding cam-paign
in the tenritory that is being settled
by white pioneers bringing a ~dis-
supive non-ative lifestyle. In one
brilliant outdoor scene, when an
Apache band chases the stagecoach,
we are made to feel the exciting
clash between the future and the
past in the rivalry between West-
emn civilization (which the stage-
coach represents) and theApaches
(who represent a past that exists
simultaneously with them, and
which they hang on to and defend
as their reality and right).
One scene, in which a skillful
stuntman standing in for John
Wayne jumps on the galloping team
of horses to bring 'the stage' under
control, shows us the adventure of
controlling a runawayr advancing
civilisation the intruding stagecoach
and its Westemn contents represent
But, who are these people
caught up in the exploration and

settlement of this New Wedld? Ba-
sically, they are a banker, a southt-

stagecoach driver, and Culyh, the
Shaeriff who is planning to arrest

When we listen to what tran-
spires among these passengers, we
realise Ford is giving us deep look

A RWANDAN radio soap opera that takes on con-
troversial issues about sexual health has won a
prestigious One World Media Award at a ceremony
in the UK.
Urunana follows life in the fictional village of
Nyarurembo and each week has an estimate au-
dience of 10 million.
Narcisse Kalisa, Urunana's director, says the show
is not afraid of taking on taboos by making people laugh.
"Our most controversial story was when a wife asked

her [cheating] husband to
use a condom," he told the
"People can laugh at
the way the issues are
addressed and the lan-
guage we are using. It's
an entertainment a
blend of education and
entertainment," he says.


The show's writer
Samuel Kyambagidwa says
the main characters are
Bushombe, a comic figure
who has recently gone back
to school at the age of 50,
and Marlyana, a respected
health worker.

Figures from the World Bank last year put the
prevalence of Aids in Rwanda at about 3%, down from
11% in 2000.
The World Bank report suggested that education at
a grassroots level played an important role in slowing
down the spread of Aids in the country.
The soap, which was started in 1999 by the UK
charity Health Unlimited, is broadcast twice a
week in 15i-minute episodes on the BBC's Great
Lakes Service.
The current storyline is about a student who
drops out of secondary school to marry a shop
owner, but then discovers she is HIV positive.
Mr Kalisa says the audience has been kept on
tenterhooks about whether the wedding would go

"He did marry her at the end of the day," Mr
Kalisa says. (BBC News)

I've been married twice, and think I was a good husband. Shortly after my son was
born, my first wife started staying out until the wee hours. I cared for our two young
children while she prowled for men. She became hostile anytime I objected, and
screamed at me in front of our children. At the urging of her family, I divorced her
and now have my children most of the time.
My second marriage ended when I found my wife having relations with the frozen
food deliveryman. The truth is, neither of my wives loved me. They liked my earning
potential, but they did not love me.
In any case, reading websites promoting affair-repairing services, I wondered why
infidelity was such a deal-breaker for me. Was I simply a less evolved, less forgiving
type? I know in my day-to-day, existence I am not a grudge holder. I couldn't put my
finger on why, after finding my wives were cheaters, I had no desire to reconcile.
You articulate the reasons very well: The desire to be loved to the exclusion of
all others, and an aversion to having to remain ever vigilant in the future. Your view
makes so much sense to me.

"I have learned to work
hard and persevere," he said.
What advice does he have
for future spellers?
"Keep working hard. Even
if you don't win, you will al-
ways learn something new."
Dr Natarajan says what
spellers take back from such
contests depends on the child.
"I did not know the mean-
ing of every wrord I was asked
to spell," he admitted.
"But based on my observa-
tions of many spellers during
recent years, I am convinced
that many of them have stud-
ied the meanings of the words."
He says he was struck by
the fact that many of the par-

focused on child's education. Par-
ticipating in such competitions is
seen as an opportunity to enhance
those skills," he said.
He sees such contests as
being not just about learning big
words, but getting the opportu-

nity to gain confidence and en-
hance people skills.
Dr Natarajan said the Spell-
ing Bee gave him "a confidence
that I could achieve things if I
put my mind to it, but that fail-
ures would be needed before

to compete in the National Bee

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) Many Hollywood heavyweights
who had supported Hillary Clinton are rallying behind Barack
Obama, pledging money and star power to his US presiden-
tial bid before a big fundraiser next week.
Experts say that since Clinton conceded defeat this month af-
ter a grueling Democratic nominating contest, celebrities have
quickly united behind Obama.
The result, they said, could be a campaign cash windfall for the
senator from Illinois, but star support doesn't necessarily translate
directly to votes.
Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, a senior scholar at the University of South-
ern California, said that once a politician becomes known, voters

voters in some States because, analysts said, some Hispanics were

But a pro-Obama video in Spanish with Hispanic actors Jes-

ing' and comedian George Lopez, has attracted more than 250,000
viewers on the video-sharing site, YouTube.com.
"It helps build a broader sense of a candidate's support," said
professor Chon Noriega, director of the University of California,
Los Angeles, Chicano Studies Research Center. "But I don't think
that because George Lopez said support (a candidate) somebody's
going to say, 'Well that's who I'm going to vote for.'"
Presumptive Republican candidate Sen. John McCain also

Sylvester Stallone.

The band was an instant success, with a Martins song called 'Hpneymooning Couple' topping the
radio charts in the Caribbean, and went on to become one of the most popular and enduring bands in
the region known for their witty and insightful songS about Caribbean life, all written by Martins.
Now based in the Cayman Islands, where the band re-located since 1982, Dave has widened his
horizons in recent years as a theatrical playwright (with two musicals under his belt), and as the sole
writer and cast member of an annual comedy revue that plays to sold-out audiences at the Harquail
Theatre in Grand Cayman.
For close to 10 years now, on stages in the Caribbean and North America, Dave has also become
known for his solo stand-up comedy performances rooted, as with everything he does, in the culture
of the Caribbean. This combination of his unique contributions of a musical icon and a naturally come-
dic mind is winning new audiences for this son of Guyana wherever Caribbean people live.
His recent performances in Florida for Guyana's Independence Anniversary and Barbados in late
May have seen an increase in demand for this other side of Dave.
Just April of this year, Dave was guest speaker for the Toburism Association of Guyana's

Story Time-

In mid-1940s, Forbes Bumbham took part in a poetry 'contest' on the top of ~~-p~~
KaeteurFall where he 'defeated' Dan Debidin only to be 'vanquished' by ";fS
Bumbam'sform ative ears w ere flled with anecdote fhstytwt culur .
Growing up in Kitty village, he was fascinated with the masquerade band to ~
the 'chagrin of some of his elders'. In the formal school system, Bumbam
showed his prowess in literary subjects. But what really separated him was
that he 'devoted much of his extra-curricular time to the dramatic club, the
debating society and to poetry reading'. At Queen's College, he played many
characters in plays by Norman Cameron; he was particularly proud of the
part he played in 'Sabaco'. Later, as Minister of Education in the first PPP-govemnment, as Councillor
and then Mayor of the City of Georgetown, Bumham continued to support -
and to promote literature and art.
The Guyana Cultural Association. New York, in its 2008 honour roll, is conferring its first posthumous award onto Forbes Burnham
mainly for initiating and supporting the Caribbean Festival of Arts (Carifesta).
Carifest'2hldi uan from Augus 5 Spebr 5a acliato fa life imbru5-ed nclue
Carifesta has its genesis in two important meetings now labelled the Caribbean Writers and Artists Conference which brought
together our custodians of words and creators of ideas. In 1966, Bumham invited a number of Caribbean writers and artists as
special guests at Guyana's Independence Celebrations. Those writers and artists use the opportunity to hold a one-day
conference. Four years later, in 1970, writers and artists were again invited to Guyana's Republic Celebrations; this time plans
were set in train for them to confer. It was at this meeting that the idea of a festival of Caribbean arts was firmly entrenched with a
mandate to see its fruition within two years.
Guyana will host to Carifesta X in 2008, thirty six years after setting the festival on its way. There is something spiritual, somewhat
quickening with the phrase, 'to come full circle'. So Carifesta 'coming home' is poignant and nostalgic. And we must not diminish the
contribution of the pioneers of Carifesta especially the role played by Linden Forbes Sampson Bumbham.
THE JOURNEY, an evening of literature. part X is slated for Thursday June 26? 2008, at Castellani House. The theme
for this outing of THE JOURNEY is Looking Forward and Back Heralding Carifesta X and looking back at THE

The solution was a nifty exer-
cise in smuggling. Mr Brownfield
used the US military's postal ser-
vice. "'The logistics were a bit of a

postal regulations to do this.

'Night of Fire'.
Amazingly, the works all ar-
rived safely.
Now they are sitting proudly
in the Pomegranate gallery. Not all
the canvases are there, however -
there are simply too many to
show. Pride of place has been given
to a 25-panel painting by
Mohammed al-Hamdany. It is
called Laylat al-Nar, or The Night
of Fire.
"The series Night of Fire gets
its name from the time of the inva-
sion in 2003, when everyone in the
ing it the Shock and Awe cam-
paign," explains Mr Brownfield.
The centrepiece of the workc is

a painting showing the fall of the

Iraqis freedom from the past.
Ihe various canvases alean ex-
plosion of reds and blacks, show-
ing people staring out fmom apart-
ment windows at the violence on
the streets.
Mohammed al-Hamdany's el-
der brother was a senior govemment
minister who was killed under
Saddam's regime. However, the
paintings show ambivalence to-
ward the US-led occupation.
"Mohammed had every rea-
son to welcome Americans as lib-
erators... [but] all of these are por-
trayed in an incredibly ambivalent
light," Mr Brownfield said.
"Because it's so chaotic and
violent... he can't help but feel tom
between welcomingnAmericans and
hating the chaos of everything he
sees around him."
The exhibition is not cutting-
edge, avant-garde art. The marine-
tumed-art dealer says the country
has lived in a cultural bubble with
too few external influences to be
able to bring something new to the
arts circuit.
However, the exhibition is a
powerful account of the artists'
experiences of the past few
years of living with war and vio-
lence. (BBC News)

By Dumeetha Luthra

IN Aside street of Soho, at a gal-
lery aptly named Pomegranate,
an interesting coincidence of
circumstances has led a US Ma-
rine to bring Iraqi art to Man-
It began when Christopher
Brownfield, then aUS Marine, was
stationed as a military liaison officer
in Baghdad's Green Zone.
As well as being the location
of the US embassy and the Iraqi
parliament, the Green Zone is also
home to several thousand Baghdad

They lived there before the
area was cordoned off to become
the heavily protected zone it is
The US Marine was in search
of a tie, and happened to go into a
souvenir shop selling Iraqi tat for
the soldiers tourist paintings,
Persian rugs and hookah pipes.
It did not look a promising
venue for finding a tie or fascinat-
ing Iraqi modem art. However, he
got talking to the vendors and dis-
covered a serious interest in art.
"When I started talking to the
people in the shop, I found they
knew alot about art. Many of them

had university degrees in fine art,
and they wanted to know more
about American art," Mr
Brownfeld said.
"So we started this cultural ex-
change, where I would bring books
on American artand they would get
books about Iraqi art and that sort
of started a friendship between us."
It was a friendship that devel-
oped using the books to communi-
"There were constraints, in that
my Arabic was abysmal, and their
English was quite limited. So we
would frequently uke books with

various artists from Europe or
America to describe what people
were trying to do," Mr Brownfield
The artists were struggling to
feed their families, barely surviv-
ing by painting 'Lawrence of
Arabia' style pieces popular among
the soldiers.
The artwork they were show-
ing the Marine was very different.
It documented the violence and
chaos around them. "After two or
three months of knowing these
people, they started bringing in re-
ally good paintings, ones that they
were not selling in the tourist
shops." The quality and sheer vol- -
ume of the pieces motivated Mr
Brownfield to make an offer: "Let
me take this to the US and try and
exhibit it, try and sell it"
After months of dialogue, the
artists agreed to take the risk.
"It took me quite some time
to build up enough trust that they
would bring in these gallery pieces
and ask me to take them to the US.
It probably took seven or eight
months before they were willing to
trust me to do that."
This was no mean feat. Iraqis

ONE hundred years after
the first Japanese immi-
grants arrived in Brazil, the
country, as a whole, has
been reflecting on an anni-
versary that has left a sig-
nificant legacy.
Numbering an estimated
1.5 million, there are more
people of Japanese descent in
Brazil than anywhere in the
world outside of Japan itself.
The celebrations are a
chance to pay tribute to the
pioneering immigrants that
first arrived at the port of
Santos near to Sao Paulo -
and, the organizers say, to
thank Brazilian society for
making them welcome.
The 165 families who ar-
rived here on June 18, 1908
came to escape poverty and
lack of job opportunities in
Japan, and to meet the de-
mand for workers in Brazil's
coffee plantations.
But there is plenty of evi-
dence at the Museum of Japa-
nese Immigration in Sao
Paulo that this was not al-
ways a comfortable story.

Painful first steps

The newly-arrived Japanese
faced a huge culture shock: A
radically different language, food
and climate.
The aim was to make their
fortune quickly and return home
- but, for many, it was not to
turn out that way.
"When they arrived here,
planting coffee wasn't so produc-
tive," says Lidia Yamashita of the
Museum of Japanese Immigra-
tion in Sao Paulo.
"rThen, because of World Wa
II, they could not consider return-
ing to Japan. The expectation
changed. They had to stay here
in Brazil and think of it as the
land where they were going to
Many immigrants and their
descendants later found success
in Brazilian society, often by
moving to the cities but the
first steps were painful.
Kokei Uehara, now a profes-
sor at the University of Sao Paulo
and president of the Japanese
Association, recalls the struggle
of his first years in Brazil.
"I was a labourer, a boy of
nine years old," he says.

"I used to work in the
morning in the plantation,
and afterwards, I got changed
and would go to the school. I
used to walk 4km, very often
in bare feet. The problem was
because sometimes the sun
was very strong and I used to
burn my feet."
This emigration some-
times divided families as well.
At home in Sao Paulo, Adella
Muramoto recalls how she
had to leave behind her older
sister, then eight years old,
diagnosed with an eye prob- Adelia Muramoto
lem just before the ship left
for Brazil.
An uncle assured the family he would bring her sister
out the following year, but war and family bereavement
meant the family would not be reunited again for another
36 years.
"I thought everything was normal, and I thought I
would meet my sister very soon. I never thought it would
be so many years without seeing her," Ms Muramoto said.
"After I arrived in Brazil, time passed. It was when I
was playing with other children and she wasn't there, then
I realized she had disappeared."

A CROATIAN man suspected of war crimes for his role dur-
ing World War II has said he is ready to face justice as his
conscience is clear.
Milivoj Asner, now 95, was a senior member of the country's
pro-Nazi Ustasha regime during the war.
Campaigners say Mr Asner, who lives in Austria, is the fourth
most-wanted living Nazi war crimes suspect.
He told Croatian television that he had ordered the deporta-
tion of Jews and Serbs, but not to Croatian death camps.
"I am ready to come to Croatia. My conscience is clear; I could
appear before a court tomorrow," Mr Asner said in the interview.
"I am deeply convinced that if the court is just, and if judges
are honest people, they have to clear me of all charges," he added.
Fragile health
He fled to Klagenfurt, Austria after being tracked down in
Croatia in 2005, where he is wanted on suspicion of organising the
persecution of Serb, Jewish and Roma people during the war.
"Nothing ever happened to whoever was a loyal citizen of the
Croatian State," said the war-time police chief.
"For others, my theory was: You are not a Croat, you hate
Croatia, okay, then please go back to your homeland."
The Croatian television reporter who conducted the interview
said Mr Asner appeared senile,, and was only temporarily lucid.
Mr Asner was recently filmed mingling with European cham-
pionship soccer fans in his home-town, prompting the Nazi-hunt-
ing Simon Wiesenthal Centre to urge Austria to extradite him.
Austria has in the past refused to hand over Mr Asner to the
Croatian authorities, saying his mental health is too fragile to al-
low him to stand trial.
Jewish groups have accused Austria, which was annexed
by Hitler in 1938 and supplied his Third Reich with many top
officials, of a lack of political will to track down Nazi crimi-
nals. (BBC News)

Sunday' Chronicle June 22, 2008

ARIES -- Get ready for an unexpected ally to show up today when you get
into a disagreement with a coworker. Someone you rarely agree with is ac-
tually going to see things your way in fact, they may even come to your
defense and help you win this debate. You two are more compatible than
you ever realized, and it's time you discovered just how compatible that is.
The two of you have the possibility for a very bright future, so spend some
social time with them soon. Get to know their other side!
TAURUS -- Weird is in the eye of the beholder, so don't get worried if you
hear that someone thinks you are the definition of the word. Own it, instead!
Chances are, this person simply doesn't know how to peg you or figure
you out. Your unique qualities intimidate them, because they don't have the
courage to march to the beat of their own drummer. They're too busy fol-
lowing orders and doing the 'in' things. You can't let their jealousy bug you.
They deserve your pity, not your anger.
GEMINI -- Don't be surprised if you're in a more introspective mood to-
day this is a very good time for deep thought and contemplation about
where you are now and where you should be headed, next. Your sub-
conscious has been mulling things over for a while, and today you should
get your conscious mind involved. A recent social invitation could lead to
more than you think, so make sure you have the time you require before
saying 'yes'. Make sure you don't overload yourself now.
CANCER -- There is an exciting surprise coming your way today, and it's
going to run a few of your carefully-made plans way off the track. But no
matter what happens to your daily routine, you'll be absolutely delighted by
the end of the day. This wrench could be just the thing to mix up your day
and infuse some new energy into it. You need to learn to be more flexible
more often, and this is the first day of your lessons. Gain appreciation for
the unknown and you will find more opportunities.
LEO -- Today will go by much slower than you would like it's tonight or
tomorrow that's where you really want to be! But you will have to wait, and
there is no getting around it. Where did all of your patience go? You can
bring it back by trying to focus on living in the moment. Try to focus on what
you're doing today and time will go a little bit faster. Spending all your en-
ergy thinking about the future is telling the universe that you don't appreci-
ate what you have and that's not true, is it?
VIRGO -- Today, conflict could lead to some very important realizations for
you especially if you offer constructive criticism to your opponent, instead
ofjut being crtical of whet thytink ordo. I's tinm fo u to fuley under-
trying to make you mad in fact, they could be doing you a huge favor by
forcing you to articulate why you believe what you believe. It's essential to
know how to answer that question!
LIBRA -- There will be a lot of game playing, today. Fortunately, it will be
the fun kind! You are in a great position to win every contest, as long as you
keep things light and mellow. Now is not the time to take yourself too seri-
ously. Get all of your competitive energy out of your system early in the day
and leave the rest of your time open for unexpected invitations. Someone is
finally working up the courage to ask if they can spend more time with you.
SCORPIO -- Despite the fact that you're feeling great and all of your friends
are, too, this is not a good time to indulge in any expensive celebratory din-
ners or nights out. Not only will paring down your expenses help flesh out
your increasingly-skeletal rainy day fund, it will give you a more accurate
idea about what you really need to be happy. Skip all of your regular splurges
and stay close to home, where there is harmony (and plenty of free enter-
SAGITTARIUS -- Do not be afraid to ask a few penetrating questions,
today. Whenever you're looking for real insight into someone, you have to
do more than just ask what their favorite color or music is! Challenge
someone's opinions. Get the behind-the-scenes scoop. You've got the
charm and energy that will encourage people to open up and share more
of who they really are. This is a wonderful day for a date, because you two
may be able to connect like never before.
CAPRICORN -- If your career is your main focus right now, that's as it should
be. You ~have all the clarity you need to fully understand the opportunities in
front of you right now, so take a moment today to make some plans for your
future. You don't have to schedule everything down to the minute just
give yourself a general idea of where you want things to go. Where do you
want to be living? What kind of job environment do you want? Answering
these questions will help you see a new path.
AQUARIUS -- Whether you like it or not, you are going to be thrown into
the center of the action today, so get ready for a lot of attention. Polish up
your image with a special outfit and practice a few ice-breakers. You need
to get ready to charm a few folks and make some new connections. Lucky
for.you, you're looking very attractive to others right now in every sense of
the word. Suddenly, folks who've known you for ages are seeing you in a
brand new light.
PISCES --Today you will want to help lots of people, but in order to do that
you have to be efficient and fast. So leave out irrelevant topics when you're
talking to people today you will need to have focused communication if
you want to get anything accomplished. It's wonderful that you are in such
a giving mood right now, because that friend who always needs your help
needs your help in a very big way. But this time, there will be something in it
for you.

The Excerpt
On Memorial Day weekend, 1995, my world changed forever. I was competing in an
equestrian event in Virginia when my Horse, Buck, decided to put on the brakes just
before the third jump.
When he stopped suddenly, momentum carried me over the top of his head. My
hands got entangled in the bridle, and I couldn't get an arm free to break my fall. AII six-
Sfeet-four-inches and 215 pounds of me landed headfirst. Within seconds, I was paralysed
from the neck down and fighting for air like a drowning person.
I woke up five days later in the intensive-care unit at the University of Virginia hospital.
Dr. John Jane, head of the neurosurgery at the hospital, said I had broken the top two
cervical vertebrae and that I was extremely lucky to have survived. He told my wife,
Dana, and me that I might never be able to breathe on my own again. But my head was
intact, and that my brain stem so close to the site of the injury appeared unharmed.
Dr. Jane said that my skull would have to be reconnected to my spinal column. He
wasn't sure if the operation would be successful, or even if I could survive.
Suddenly it dawned on me that I was going to be a huge burden to everybody, that I
had ruined my life and everybody else's. Why not die, I thought miserably, and save
Everyone a lot of trouble?
As my family and friends visited, my spirits were on a roller-coaster ride. I would feel
so grateful when someone came a long way to cheer me up. But the time would come
when everybody had to leave, and I'd lie there and stare at the wall, stare at the future,
stare at disbelief.
When I would finally fall asleep, I'd be whole again, making love to Dana, riding or
Acting in a play. Then I'd wake up and realize that I could no longer do any of that; I was

I can't dn??t away from this, I began to realize. I don't want to leave.

Black as the tropical night, the cat patted gently at shadows dancing from the oil lamp's
flickering orange flame. Made from a small jar with a wick of tightly twisted paper, the
Iamp sat on a table beside the bed where eight-year-old Rona Mahilum was sleeping.
Nearby, five of her brothers and sisters nestled on wovert mats, making the two-room,
wood-and-thatch hut a peaceful cocoon of sleeping children.
They were alone in a vast night on the edge of civilization, high up a mountain on the
Philippine island of Negros Occidental, 300 miles south of Milan. The children's parents,
Rolando and Nenita, along with two other children, had set off along the jagged paths
earlier that day last May to sell bread and coffee at a fiesta in Alimatok, a village over an
hour away on foot.
In the isolation of Mahilum, the soft glow of lamplight had brought comfort to Rona and
the other children as they drifted off to sleep. But now, into the night, blazing oil suddenly
spilled onto Rona's bed and splattered the floor.
Rona jumped up. She knew instantly that the meddlesome cat had knocked over the
lamp. Hearing sizzling, she realized that her shoulder-length hair was on fire. The blaze
leapt to her night clothes.
Rona hit the flames searing her head and shoulders. Safety was but a step to the
door. Then, in the terrifying light, she saw her brothers and sisters stirring.
With flames in her hair, her nostrils filled with smoke, Rona grabbed the first child she
could, five-year-old Cheryl. She rushed down the ladder steps into the yard, where she
laid the child under the big banana tree. Then-she ranf back through the smoke, squinting
and holding her breath, and lifted both Ruben, four, and Rhocelle, one, to safety.
The initial flash of flame had died down, and the fire had begun its slow, serious
business of spreading through the house. Rona entered again, then carried Roberto,
seven, outside. Dazed and coughing, he watched as his sister, her hair and clothes still
smoldering with smoke and small flames, ran back into the house for nine-year-old Roda.
Unable to lift her, Rona frantically pushed her older sister to the window and rolled her
With all the children rescued, Rona grabbed the family's plastic pail, ran to the nearby
stream and returned to. the house to douse the flames again and again. Finally, her small
body was overcome, and she collapsed facedown in the charred, smoking rubble....

THE Ministry of Agriculture's Grow More Food caravan is
in Berbice this weekend as part of intensified efforts-to en-
courage farmers and producers of food to increase output
in light of the rising demand for food both regionally and
Mlimster of Agriculture, RolferT Persaud, along-with several~
officials from \ariousj agencies in the agriculture sector will be
mteracting this weekend with farmers and residents of east and
west Berbice as w~ell as the East Coast of Demerara.
Quantuties; of seeds, chemicals and plantmg materials will also
be dtstributed during this ongoing exercise which will see the
Grow Mlore Food Caravan visiting various farming communities
across the country ole~r the coming weeks.

The Grow More Food campaign launched on March 29,
2008, was the first of its kind to be embarked on in CARICOM,:
since it was recrognised early by government that the increased
demand for food also presented an opportuhity-for Guyana- to
increa-e its expon earnings and capturt a percentage of the more
than US53.5B regional Food import bill.
:Commenting on Guyana's proactive approach to the global
food challenge, Coordmnalor of the Regional Technical Co-opera-
tion Agenda of the Inter-American Institute for Co-operation on
A~grculture IllCA!. Vincent Little, on May 12, noted, "Guyana
has taken the most coherent and aggressive responses in the re-
gion to deal witlh the rising cost of food and while this i's
Srecognised. focus is being placed on the role of the Jagdeol~nitia-
tlve to reposition the sector in light of the current global food

Farmers across the country are recognismg the opportunl-
ties.which this new global food Situation presents, and are will-
ing to ri je to the challenge of increasing their production, and by
extension, their income.
Latchman Dindyal (exporter/farmer): Over thelast sev-
eral months the demand -from the Caribbean for many of
my products has increased significantly. These include plan-
tains, pineapples and eddoes, among others. The mqjor chal-
lenge I have encountered so far is sourcing the produce in
adequate quantities. This is the main reason that I have
decided to get back into farming to ensure I ama able tbo meet
the demands of my buyers.
Joseph Overton (farmer): After many years of being under-
paid, farmers now have an opportunity to get competitive prices
for their produce. I have increased by production since last year
because several exporters I sell to have increased their orders. I
would definitely encourage other farmers tPo do likewise sinc8
the market is wide open for more food.
-E. Govindasammy (farmer): Ihave increased cultivation, es-
pecially over the last six months and still can't seem to keep up
with the demand from exporters. Although the cost of produc-
tion for inputs such as fuel and fertilizer is very high, the higher
prices being paid for my crops is surely worth the effort.

The Ministry of Agriculture, in recognizing that support to
both farmers and the farming industry is critical if the drive to
grow more food is effective, is undertaking several initiatives to
boost this campaign.
These include; the speedy implementation of US$21.9M Ag-
ricultuial Export Diversification and the US$6M Rural Enter-
prise and Agriculture Development projects, increased investment
in D&I with an average annual budget allocation of US$5M, en-
hanced extension and marketing service to farmers and traders,
increased availability of seed and planting materials and breeding'
animals, and approval of all outstanding viable food production
investment projects.

The marke~t-driven approach which this campaign has
adopted, seeks to ensure that increased food production is closely
linked to what the market demands, and is not aimed at encour-
aging farmers to grow more of every crop. In this regard,. it is
advisable for farmers to contact the Guyana Marketing Corp6-
ration (GMC) for advice.
Farmers are also being encouraged to submit their contact
inoration to GMC for free registration on the Farmers' Data-
base which would enable the agency to make contact with you
in a timely manner to share and gather information related to,
among other things, markets for your produce.
For more information contact GMC at 87 Robb and
Alexander Streets, Georgetown, telephone 227-1630/226-
8255 or visit www.newgme.com/www~agriculture~gov.gy. Text

Prime Minister, Mr. Samuel
Hinds, meanwhile, commended
the author on a job well done,
saying that the publication will
serve to introduce Guyana to the
world at large.
Noting~ that tourism is one of
the areas through which a country
can grow economically, Mr. Hinds
supported this argument by saying
that of late, Destination Guyana has
ternationally mn the print and elec-
tronic me~dia,such as the BBC Wild-
life Magazine, the Independent, the
Times online, the Bird Life Maga-
.zine and Wildlife Extra.
He also mentioned in pass-
ing the filmine of a number of

documentaries here recently,
such as February Treks in the
Wild World for National Geo-
graphic, and a BBC series titled,
'Expedition Guyana', due to go
on air next month.
He, too, lauded the timeli-
ness of the publication, seeing it
as "a welcome addition to the in-
creasing international awareness
and attention that Guyana is re-

Kirk Smock, who spent two
and a half years before moving
to New York last October, said
the one thing about Guyana that
has always fascinated him is
how, in spite of all its grandeur
and beauty, it still is an enigma
to many. "Throughout all my
travels, I kept wondering how
Guyana has remained so un-
known," he said, adding that
while many cnlnatry's sternatione

are their cities, Guyana's is dif-
ferent because of the many re-
sort destinations.
Besides bits and pieces
about Guyana's culture and his-
tory, he said the 296-pager also
contains information on planning
and preparation; bird watching
and rainforests destinations;
jungle trekking and wildlife; and
Amterindian communities; as well
as detailed maps and pictures
selling Guyana as .South
America's undiscovered gem.
Also thrown in for good measure
are pictures of what some ani-
mal tracks look like.
Still obviously amazed at
what he has been able to accom-
plish, Smock said: "I did not
think I would even be able to
write 225 pages... but I was just
constantly inspired by the
beauty of Guyana and by the
tourism offerings."
He promised that the tour
guide will be updated every tvo
to three years as tourism here
progresses, and that he will be
returning to Guyana from time
to time to pursue story ideas and
to keep up-to-date on develop-
ments in the tourism sector for
future editions.

VAT Policy Corner

VAT Policy -Oats

The Guyana Revenue Autthority continues to provide assistance to the general public on different issues regarding
thie application of Value- Added Tax (VAT) to specific items in Schedule I of the VAT Act, which lists goods and
services that are zero-rated for VAT purposes.

Schedule 1, Paragraph 2A, (s) (iv). of the VAT Act zero-rates a supply of oats. As a result, consumers will not pay VAT
at the standard rate of sixteen percent when making purchases of oats used for human consumption since businesses
are required to charge VA\T at the rate of 0% .

In addition, Schedule I, paragraph 2 (kk) provides for the zero-rating of "a supply of prepared poultry, cattle feed, pig
feed, and other prepared animal feed and ingredients thereof as determined by the Cornunssfoner, but not including
pet feed."
Therefore, oats when acqikired as prepared animal feed or as an ingredient for prepared animal feed may be zero-rated
providing the Commissioner is satisfied that the product will be used for the purposes identified in the law.

Further, Schedu~le 1, Paragraph 2(c) zero-rates a supply' of fungicide, herbicide, and weedicide for agricultural purposes.
As a result, oats used as fungicide, herbici de and weedicide for agr:icuilturaipurpo;ses~ mabe eligible for zero-rating if
the Commissioner finds these will used for the p~urposes stipulated in the law.

Thus, persons who require zero-rating of oats to be used as prepared animal feed or as an ingredient: for prepared animal
feed and oats to be u~sed as fungicide, herbicide, and weedicide for agricultural purposes must apply to the Remission
Unit of th~e Gruyana Revenue Au~thority at 357 Lamah~a and East Streets, Georgetown requesting zero-rating.

Notwithstanding the above, oats used as a coffee subsftiute or to produce whisky, for cosmetic reasons, as fibres
papers, bedding, pillow filling, thatching etc. are not: zero-f ati-d and will attract VAT at the standard rate ofsixteen

In addition, registered businesses which are involved in the sale of mixed supplies, that is, exempt supplies and
standard rated and/or zero-rated supplies may file a claim every month to the Guryana Revenue Authority for a refund
of the excess credits attributable to the zero-rated supp~rlies only if the zero-rated items account for at least fifty percent
of the amount of the taxable s~upplies:

Therefore, if 50%/ or more of the taxable supplies of a registered person are taxed at 0%, that person can claim a refund
of the credits attributable to the zero-rated supplies each month.

Persons who require the list of zero-rated items or still have queries with respect to VAT are encouraged to
contact the Department on Telephone No. 227-79)29, Extension (200) and (201); or write to the Commissiotter,
VAT and Excise Tax' Department, 210'E' Albert and Charlotte Streets, Bourda for clarifications.

.and discharged several rounds in his direction. He was hit in the
lower left leg and is now a patient at the Georgetown Hospital.
Bishop was also walking along James Street when the shooting
occurred, but could not get out of the line of fire in time. He was
hit in the right shoulder and was also hospitalized.

RANKS of a mobile police patrol responding Friday to a re-

The man was subsequently arrested and is assisting the police
in their investigations.
A CANJE man who was arrested for allegedly chopping his

paramour, a policewoman, about the body, died yesterday at the
New Amsterdam Hospital.
Steve Bovell is reported to have died at around 02:00hrs. He
had been admitted to the hospital after telling the police, following
his arrest, that he had ingested poison.
Stay Bovell, the women he is alleged to have chopped on
Thursday, is still a patient at the same institution. The chop-
ping incident, the police say, occurred about 23:00hrs on the
day in question at No 51 Village on the Corentyne Coast.
A 17-year-old is assisting the police in their investigations into
a suspected arson on May 18 at Friendship, on the East Coast
Demerara in which a 71-year-old woman perished, and an armed
robbery in the same village in which the victim was a 60-year-old.
He was arrested yesterday on suspicion of causing the
death of Dolly Trim and robbing Adora Evelyn at her Ogle
Street home on May 31.

TODAY is probably the biggest day in Guyana's rich football
histr Gic nou gseno a ioln nemthorec ppularly k otT
FIFA World Cup Qualifiers for the first time.
Not only are they playing for a spot in the 2010 event, but for
the first time any other sport other than cricket will be played at
Guyana National Stadium at Providence.
The Jaguars, after losing their first match in the home and away
~qualifiers 1-llast Saturday to the Dutch men at the Andre Kamperveen
Stadium in Suriname, are in a must-win situation, where they must
score at least two goals and not have Suriname score any in the pro-
It is their biggest assignment to date but for the team it is
being treated just like any match which they have played.
One such player is Guyana's national captain Charles 'Lily' Pol-
Regarded as one of the best defenders in the Caribbean, Pollard
has been the captain of the national side for a number of years and he
eay ts tiesn prb abl enbi es ame which he would be playing
He views the match as the foundation for Guyana's future
in world football because with a win Guyana will progress to
the next stage of the qualifiers and once again it will be an-
other great achievement for the Jaguars.

Because of the importance of the match, it is expected that
the 20 000-capacity venue at Providence will be filled with
Guyanese from all walks of life, all cheering the Jaguars on.
There has been a call for aHl Guyanese to come out and be the
twelfth man. The long-standing captain says this sort of response
will put pressure on his squad
"Most of the players on our team are professionals and we know
how to handle the pressure, but we have a few young players who
are playing at this level for the first time, but we are helping them
along and teaching them how to deal with the bright lights and cam-
We understand Guyanese are behind us 110% and want us to
win and we don't want to let them down, but we can't play for the
fans because as you know, you can never please them, so we are
going out there and play for our country."
He went on to state that "we have a great coaching staff and
they have been working hard just like the players, and I think the
pressure is more on them than on us to produce the best possible
teamfor today 's engagementn

It was a not-so-smooth road leading up to the qualifiers for
the Jaguars. The Guyana Football Federation and its World Cup
committee had struggled to find the ade uate amount of money
to properly prepare the team, also lack of proper training facili-
ties, but there was something to smile about when Caribbean
cell phone giant DIGICEL came on board.
They sponsored several friendly international matches in
Guyana with the Jaguars playing, first St Vincent and the Grena-
dines at Blairmont where they were one-nil victors then they faced
Grenada at the GCC ground losing 2-1. There were also tWO
matches against the Caribbean top-ranked team Cuba with the Jag
uars winning 2-1 in the first encounter at the MSC ground in Lin-

den then holding them to a nil-all draw at Bourda.
The last match for the Jaguars prior to the start of the qu1.::
fiers was against Trinidad and Tobago in Trinidad with the Soi~

W lar dscre tet tea' t ration as commend-
able since he says "most of the players play professionally. .co
that, coupled with the few matches that we would have playwi:,
were very helpful in our knowing how we stand and what wre
would need to do at thrs stage'.

The towering 33-year-old defender said that the team's spirit
has been very high throughout their encampment smnce the ph~.v-
ers all recognt~se the importance of the matches both home andic
When asked if he's looking at any particular player- to
shine today, Pollard was quick to response that a collective
approach will be taken by the team. "Team effort as impor-
tant, we've been playing as a team and we've been successfedl
before and that's the approach we will be taking."
taT uching on ttN fi nss of th dtaream dh baparnlentionedcl
This, he mentioned, is very important smece producing a
fit and healthy unit in a must-win game is very critical.

The Providence stadium was the only venue recognized
by FIFA to host the match in Guyana, but there was somre
initial difficulty faced by the Guyana Footbaill Federation to
acquire the world-class facility, but after much deliberation,
the green light was given approximately two weeks befre~r
Guyana's home game.
Pollard says he's impressed with the tuif at the facility andc
has thanked the Government of Guyana for giving them the op-
portunity to play their most important match in history in front
of their home crowd.
All in all Guyana's national captain says his players are fitr
and ready to rock and roll.
The national stadium is expected to be transformed into the
sea of yellow since patrons are urged to wear yellow in supporIt
of the Golden Jaguars.
It was reported that tickets for the game have been go-
ing fast since most of the outlets selling tickets were so~ld
out up to last might.
Kick-off time is 15:30 h. Gates will be opened at 13:00~h.

Goalkeepers: Richard Reynolds and Andrew Durant
