TERRORISTS, drug traffick-
ers, traffickers-in-persons
and 'snakeheads' pose the
greatest challenge to na-
tional security in the 21st
century, according to Mr. An-
thony Interlandi, Deputy
Chief of Mission at the
United States Embassy in
"In the 20th century, na-
tional security meant defending
yourself against the attack or
hostile intentions of a rival
state. While that threat still ex-
ists, it is far more likely that the
faceless enemies of terrorists,
transnational drug barons and
traffickers-in-persons pose a
greater danger to our citizens and
our civilisation in the 21st Cen-
tury," Interlandi said.
Delivering a lecture yester-
day on the 'Drug scourge and its
implications for Guyana: a 21st
century challenge to national
security' the envoy said the
United States learnt that lesson
most brutally with the terrorist
attacks on September 11, 2001.
"Terrorists, drug traffickers
and snakeheads have no respect
for national boundaries. They
operate in the shadows with
devastating impact upon our
societies. So we must operate
together to root out and expunge
this evil," he told participants
who attended the lecture.
The forum was the second
in a series of 'lunch-time lecture'
* organised by the Guyana Press
Association (GPA). The lecture
was held in the conference room
'of the Demerara Mutual Fire
aand Life Insurance building on
Robb Street.
'According to the U.S. en-
voy. the drugs trade is a serious

scourge plaguing Guyana and it
is eating away at the very fab-
ric of the Guyanese society.
"Regrettably, Guyana's role
as a trans-shipment point for
narcotics is growing, with co-
caine flowing in and out of
Guyana through its sparsely
protected borders and along its
coast," he said.
Interlandi also said that clan-
destine airstrips in the heavily
forested interior facilitate traf-
ficking from Venezuela and Co-
"Once the contraband sub-
stances are in the country, they
are carried to Georgetown by
road and waterway. Then they
are sent on to the U.S., Europe
and the Caribbean via commer-
cial carriers," he posited. Nar-
cotics are also being sent via
cargo ships either directly or
through intermediate Caribbean
ports to their destinations, he
Pointing out the implica-
tions of the scourge on
Guyana's economy, democ-
racy and independence,
Interlandi said some
Guyanese citizens might ask,
"Why should we (the U.S.)
worry...that's a problem for
the Americans, the Canadi-
ans and the Europeans. It's
your citizens and it's your

But Interlandi noted that
Guyana is working hard to
strengthen its democracy, pro-
mote prosperity and stand as an
independent country all of
which are undermined by the
international narcotics trade.

that independence.

Noting that Guyana cel-
ebrated its 39th independence
anniversary on Thursday last,
Interlandi said Guyanese cher-

tional loyalties. They have no
allegiance except to illicit gains.
Your airspace isn't your own
and your rivers are turned into

In this context, Interlandi
posed an interesting question
to the gathering: "After wait-
ing centuries to control its
own affairs, why would
Guyana want to surrender its
sovereignty to a faceless en-

are tarnished. Guyanese exports
of forest products and food-
stuffs get extra scrutiny at ports
of arrival. That can cause delays
and frustration to the buyer.
They might look elsewhere. So
the honest entrepreneur is sty-
mied and law- abiding citizens
see fewer jobs in the legal sec-
tor. The accompanying violence
can scare off foreign investors."
Asserting that "dirty
money pollutes politics", the
U.S. official said the huge sums
of 'drug money' generated by
narco-trafficking can easily find
its way into a nation's politics
and influence politicians.
"Drug barons seek and
buy loyalty. It has happened
in vast swaths of Colombia
and it can happen in other
nations...the tainted funds
canp work their way into po-
litical systems with or with-
out the compliance of politi-

of 'inside job" mooted

A GROUP of sugar workers,
this time' without assistance
from the Police, yesterday
continued to search several
areas of Guyana Sugar Cor-
poration (GUYSUCO) land
in the back-dam for their two
colleague workers who mys-
teriously disappeared eight
days ago.
This newspaper was told
that about 36 sugar workers in-
cluding a GUYSUCO manager
and supervisor searched several
areas in the back-dam between
Enterprise, Stratsphey and
Vigilance yesterday, but there
was still no trace Maikhram
Sawh, 47, called 'Bharat' of

"scared away" and had to dis-

allegedly saw "some men"

aback the violence-prone
Buxton area.
One of the workers told
this newspaper that when the
search party reached Vigilance,
which borders Buxton, only two
persons decided to venture
across the Vigilance side-line
dam. It is understood that the
two men did not see when per-
sons began to emerge a short
distance away from the Buxton
backdam. The other members of
the search party reportedly
blew whistles and shouted to
their fellow workers to get out
of the area quickly. The group
then hastily left the scene, the
resident said.
Around 17:00 h yesterday,
there were several unconfirmed
reports that a fire had started
not far from the area where
Sawh and Taranauth were work-
ing when they disappeared. It is

not clear who started the fire or
for what purpose, but the work-

POLICE have arrested one
person so far as intensive in-
vestigations continued yester-
day into the daring G$10.3M
armed robbery at the Main
Street Head Office of the
Customs and Trade Adminis-
tration on Friday afternoon.
It is understood that the sus-
pect was arrested after the Police
studied the images captured
shortly before, during and after the
robbery, on several surveillance
cameras strategically installed
within the Customs building.

said enquiries disclosed that the
two suspects entered the.build-
ing and proceeded to an area
where the vault is located.
They then stuck up two of the
employees and stole a brief-
case which contained
G$10,327,497 in cash. The Po-
lice said the men then exited the
compound through a south

should be a source of pride

This was reported yester-
day by Minister of Health Dr.
Leslie Ramsammy at a press
conference at the Health Min-
istry to update the media on his
participation at the 58th World
Health Assembly (WHA) meet-
ing in Geneva.
The Minister also attended
the Second Annual President's
Emergency Fund for AIDS Re-
lief (PEPFAR) meeting in Ethio-
pia. While at the meeting, the
Minister said, Guyana was cho-
sen as a "flag ship for the
implementation of the 'Three
Ones' agreement that comprises
a 'National Coordinating Body,'

He said that every country
that adopts this agreement has
to work as one. All measures
and plans taken must be shared
among all countries in order to
move forward.
He noted that Guyana has
been working closely with vari-
ous countries to combat HIV/
AIDS and, as a result, this coun-
try has made progress.
At the Geneva meeting,
Guyana was among 169 coun-
tries, which adopted a Treaty
for Tobacco Use and its Effects
after deliberations on the dan-
gers of smoking.

pointed out that he has drafted
a motion to be tabled in the Na-
tional Assembly to educate es-
pecially young Guyanese on the
dangers of smoking.
He added that the education
programme would also make
provision for smokers who are
desirous of quitting but who do
not have the willpower to do
so. He said that education
would be an integral part of
training young people not to be
involved in smoking.
Minister Ramsammy noted
that members of the younger

The robbers struck shortly
after working hours Friday af-
ternoon when most employees
had left or were about to leave
the CTA head office, which is
part of the Guyana Revenue
Authority (GRA).
Commissioner General of
the GRA, Mr. Kurshid Sattaur
told the Chronicle late yester-
day afternoon that, from all in-
dications so far, the robbery
seems like "an inside job".
"It looks like an inside job;
this is highly-probable," he said,
via a telephone. He also indi-
cated that the entire incident
"only took a matter of seconds"
but was 'captured on the secu-
rity surveillance cameras in the
Sattaur said the tape from
the surveillance camera that
captured the incident was care-
fully and extensively studied
yesterday and it would seem
that the two 'suspects' in the
robbery entered the building
from the front entrance, one of
them around 15:35 hrs but
there are no indications that
the men ever left the building
via the same route.
There are reports that the
robbers may have entered Cus-
toms House from the front, but
once inside the building, they
donned masks, whipped out

their firearms and stuck up the
two customs employees who
were about to lock the briefcase
with money in a vault. They
then escaped through a fire ex-
ist at the back.
When Sattaur spoke to this
newspaper shortly after the in-
cident on Friday, when the tape
from the security surveillance
cameras was not thoroughly
studied, he had indicated that the
two masked and armed men that
entered the building through a fire
exit at the back were "aided,
abetted and assisted" by a third
person who is a prime suspect.
'But after reviewing the
tape yesterday, Sattaur said the
'third person' he had referred to
is believed to be one of the two
masked robbers who eventually
carried out the robbery.
It is not yet clear whether
the person in custody is a Cus-
toms employee or an outsider.
Police are continuing
their investigations.

DIALOGUE, at all levels, must be the way forward
for national unity, national reconstruction and
national progress of Guyana as it heads for its
40th independence anniversary.
Both the government and the main parliamentary
opposition seem to be quite aware of this reality,
though they expressed it differently last week as this
nation celebrated its 39th freedom birthday.
President Bharrat Jagdeo, delivering a well-
crafted and eloquent 'address to the nation on
anniversary eve last Wednesday night, made a spirited
call for what he described as "an enhanced national
conversation" involving all groups and segments of the
As the President said, this kind of "national
conversation", or structured dialogue at all levels, could
be the catalyst for fostering social cohesion and
economic progress to move Guyana towards the status
of a "modern nation", to which he has committed the
For its part, the main opposition PNCR said
in a statement marking Guyana's 39th independence,

that real progress "will only occur in an environment
where political differences are reconciled" and the
"burden of governing is shared".
It is through consultation or structured dialogue
that differences, political, social, or else, could be
"reconciled". Therefore, the PNCR and the governing
PPPC should avoid engaging in semantics and, in the
spirit of the offer by President Jagdeo, get the process
underway for the proposed "enhanced national
The PNCR's obsession with the idea that a
resolution to Guyana's problems rests with "shared
governance" is not based on the realities of multi-party,
democratic governance within the Caribbean
Community. It is barking up the wrong tree.
It could, instead, challenge the government
to renew the high-level dialogue with set time frames
on achieving specific objectives. It would, of course,
bear in mind that not only is the governing party and
the Jagdeo administration keen on the dialogue
process but, as it recently signalled, the preference
is for such a dialogue to take place with public
accountability so that the people would know which
side is delaying progress.
The President has been quite active within recent
times in meet-the-people exercises, discussing at the
floor level problems and challenges they face in their
respective communities. He must now move to have
scheduled meetings with representative organizations
and groups of the national community, with high priority
being given to the business sector and labour
movement, and extending to women, youth, religious
and cultural organizations.

While the opposition parties come forward
with their own ideas and willingness to advance the
dialogue process, President Jagdeo and his
government could give some serious consideration to
organising national consultations on critical areas.
For example, on crime and security,
challenges in education, including violence in schools;
and, with the cooperation of the Ethnic Relations
Commission, mount a special forum also to highlight
the imperatives of dwelling and building together.
Let the shouting across the political divide
subside and give a chance to the suggested national
conversation for a better Guyana. Let us talk on finding
solutions. We are all involved.

Castro chose this year's May
Day celebration as an occasion to
connect the 1976 Cubana
bombing tragedy with ongoing
U.S. aggression against Cuba, and
to expose what he views as the
"hypocritical policy" of
President George Bush's "war
against terrorism" in harbouring
Cuban exiles wanted for crimes of
sabotage and murder.

Bohning is certainly no
admirer or sympathiser of Fidel
Castro and his government; nor
does he carry the reputation of

a radical American journalist, the
profession to which he had
belonged for some 45 years,
having joined the 'Miami Herald'
six months after Castro's
revolutionary triumph in January
1959 over the U.S.-backed
dictator Fulgencio Batista.
What the author of 'The
Castro Obsession' humbly offers,
based on years of experience as
a journalist with an admirable
commitment to accuracy and
research, and a passion for
exposing wrongs where they
exist, is an absorbing account of
clandestine activities, including
organised attempts at the highest
levels of U.S. administrations, to
assassinate Castro.
He provides an
abundance of first-hand
information with extensive
references on why the secret
six-year war to depose the
government of Castro,
including the infamous and

disastrous 'Bay of Pigs'
invasion, was to haunt
successive U.S.
administrations. long after the
passing of President John
Kennedy. The U.S.A. was to

with success.
Some commitments made to

These include the extension of
the Mabaruma Primary and

Residents were also prom-

a programme was subsequently
carried out in the region by
Government through Don

2004. A number of residents re-

Another commitment was
made to supply some nursery
schools in the Mabaruma Settle-
ment District with teaching-aids,
books and indoor and outdoor
facilities. This was done in De-
cember, 2004.
Other commitments
made were for projects to be

in full force, only seven of the,
22 invited Arab leaders
participated. Among the absent,
leaders were those from Egypt,
Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria,
but they, like the others who
could not attend, were
represented by their Prime'
Ministers or Foreign Ministers.


The Summit itself had
many objectives, the most
important, according to the host
government, being the
"reciprocal re-discovery of two
regions with historical affinities
and a vast but yet unfulfilled.
potential in the field of bilateral

relations." As an innovative
initiative, it was, in recent
times, the first international
meeting bringing together two
very large non-contiguous world
regions in an act of South-South
inter-regional cooperation. Its
overall purpose was to
i strengthen relations between the
two regions through increased
political, economic and social
cooperation and the
establishment of a partnership
to pursue peace, justice and
At the opening session,
Brazil's President Lula Da
Silva, the main proponent of the
Summit; emphasized economic
matters, while Algerian
President Bouteflika, on behalf
of the Arab League, dealt with
Middle East political issues,
particularly the Palestinians'
right to an independent state.
And President Toledo of Peru,
the .Pro-Tempore Secretary of
the South American
Community of Nations, called
for closer economic and
political relations between the
two regions.


The plenary sessions that
followed focused on the themes,
"Bi-regional cooperation, through
commerce, investment and

business", and "PTolitical dialogue and
cultural exchange." During these
sessions, heads of delegations called
for the deepening of alliances
between South America and the
Arab region and urged greater
economic collaboration, trade and
Discussing global political
concerns, the leaders addressed
many crucial issues, including the
current Israeli-Palestinian conflict,
the situation in Iraq and the reform
of the UN Security 'Council.
Participants also projected political
differences on the recently elected
Iraqi government, represented at the
summit by President Jalal Talabani.
Venezuelan President Chavez, a
vocal critic of the US invasion of
Iraq, described the Iraqi elections as
questionable, given the continuation
of the US occupation and the Iraqi
insurgency. However, he joined the
"South American consensus," and
confirmed his recognition of and
respect for the Iraqi government.
In his intervention,
President Jagdeo expressed
Guyana's support for economic
collaboration, trade and dialogue.-
Explaining that models of
development followed. by
developing countries were not
advancing their economic and
social progress, he 'urged the
South American and Arab regions
to work towards changing the
existing international system to'-
allow them a greater, role in the

decision-making process
affecting their development.
Strong inter-regional solidarity
was the key to future success,
he declared.


On its conclusion, the
leaders issued the "Declaration
of Brasilia," expressing "total
condemnation of terrorism in
all its forms and
manifestations," while also
recognizing "the right of states
and peoples to resist foreign
occupation in accordance with
the principles of international
legality and in compliance with
international humanitarian
law." The declaration also calls
for the holding an international
conference under the auspices
of the United Nations, to study
this phenomenon of terrorism
and to clearly define what is a
"terrorist crime".
Further, it demands
that Israel disband settlements
and retreat to its borders
before the 1967 Mideast war.
Earlier, Palestinian leader
Mahmoud Abbas called on
South American nations to
exert pressure on Israel to stick
to its peace commitments,
saying that the Palestinians
were upholding theirs.
The statement
upholding the right to resist
foreign occupation has already
drawn condemnationi from
some pro-Israeli groups who
feel that it could be interpreted
as an implied endorsement of
anti-Israel groups:1 like
Hezbollah and Hamas, or Iraqi
Nevertheless, the
declaration supports
international efforts for
Mideast peace, including the
US-backed "road map" peace
plan. On Iraq, it emphasizes
respect for the unity,
sovereignty and independence
of Iraq and non-interference in
its internal affairs.
Regarding a long-
standing issue in the South
American region, the
document, significantly, calls
on Argentina and the United
Kingdom to resume
negotiations to reach a
peaceful, fair and lasting
solution to the sovereignty

some positions which conflicted
strongly with certain aspects of
US foreign policy. For instance,
the declaration denounces
American economic sanctions
against Syria. But while the
South American and Arab
leaders committed themselves to
protecting the key US issue of
intellectual property, they
declared that such protection
"should not prevent developing
countries from access to basic
science and technology, and
from taking steps to promote
national development,
particularly concerning public
health policies."
President Da Silva said
the goal of the new alliance is
to change a world order "where
ithe rich keep getting richer,
(and) the poor keep getting
poorer." Addressing that
concern, the summit document
says trade liberalisation talks
promoted by developed nations
like the United States could '
benefit the global economy, but
current rules of international
commerce "widen the gap
between developed and
developing countries."


In reviewing the results
of the Summit, some political
analysts .initially; felt -that
relatively little wa achieved.
However, the leaders differed
with such a view saying their
meeting was a first step towards
becoming more influential on the
international stage. Indeed, some
success was clearly visible.
While the leaders ironed out
political and economic issues,
the business sections of the
Arab delegations held trade
discussions with some of their
South American counterparts to
strike business deals. In
addition, a well attended South
American investment fair and
conference, in which Guyana
participated, ran parallel with
the Summit.
This parallel investors'
conference resulted in an
agreement to begin negotiations
on a free-trade area between six
oil-rich Arab Gulf nations and
the Mercosur group, the South
American economic bloc
comprising Brazil, Argentina,
Uruguay and Paraguay. These
six Arab nations are Saudi
Arabia, the United Arab
Emirates, Oman, Bahrain,
Kuwait and Qatar all members
of the Gulf Cooperation

and more South American
countries will be looking
towards the oil-rich Arab
countries to attract greater
investment and to expand their
trade. Already some South
American leaders, with full
backing from the growing Arab
diaspora in the continent, are
planning official visits to the
Arab states in pursuit of this
objective. Countries like Guyana
and Suriname have an in-built
advantage since they are already
members of the Organisation of
the Islamic Conference. They,
no doubt, can use this
connection and their already
established contacts to draw
down economic support.
Suriname, as a
member of the Islamic
Development Bank, has
already been obtaining
financial support from that
institution, headquartered in
Saudi Arabia: Politically,
Guyana has won much
respect from Arab states as a
result of its long standing
membership of the UN
Committee on the Exercise of
Inalienable Rights of the
Palestinian People, and this
can surely help it to win
political and economic
support from many of the
Arab nations.
As the South
American and Arab nations
look towards their next
summit in Morocco in 2008,
both regions expect to work in
partnership to confront the
similar developmental
challenges. They are, no
doubt, aware that their
differences in culture and
levels of development will not
"prevent them from sharing
common goals and interests.

world's leaders gathered at
the United Nations (U.N.)
Millennium Summit to
commit their nations to
strengthening global efforts
for peace, human rights,
democracy, strong
governance, environmental
sustainability and poverty
The Millennium
Summit resulted in the
formation of the eight
Millennium Development
Goals (MDGs), which are to
be achieved within the time-
span of one generation, from
1990 to 2015. Although all 189
Heads of State signed the
Millennium Declaration, the

achievement of the Goals is a
mammoth task that cannot be left
to governments alone.
Goal Number seven is to
ensure environmental
sustainability. The question in
this article is whether it is in the
interest of companies to be part
of the world's ongoing efforts to
ensure environmental
sustainability. The question is
especially relevant for
companies that rely directly on
natural resources (e.g. lumber
companies, fisheries, eco-
tourism) but is actually relevant
for all companies, since
environmental degradation has a
series of negative effects from
the local problem of garbage that
causes drain blockage and
flooding to the global problem of
ozone layer depletion that
causes seawater level rise, skin
cancer, irregular agricultural
patterns and much more.
There are several very
sound business arguments for
companies to be proactively
engaged in debates and activities
concerning environmental
management and protection.

These include the potential for
cost savings through more
efficient production processes,
the potential for product and
service innovation, increased
access to new markets and
improved stakeholder relations.
There are many
examples of companies that
have reduceduced costs through
increased resource efficiency.
One large area is the global
trend toward the use of wind
and solar technology to power
business operations. Many
production plants in developing
countries are choosing t o move
away from oil-based electricity
consumption to
environmentally sustainable
electricity consumption. Several
motivations have driven this
movement; reduced electricity
costs in the long run, reduced
reliance on volatile oil prices,
and reduced reliance on external.
electricity providers that are
often unstable and inconsistent.
There are also many

markets because they adopt
stricter environmental policies.
In Guyana, two lumber
companies provide a good
example of how an extra
environmental effort can provide
increased market access. Lumber
companies in Guyana that
comply with the Guyana
Forestry Commission's
guidelines in developing sound
production processes are to be
commended, but two companies,
Barama Company Ltd and
Guyana Variety and Greenheart
Ltd, have gone beyond
government required standards
and are now in the process of
achieving certification from the
International Forest Stewardship
Council. This certification not
only ensures that the companies
are managing their timber in a
more sustainable way, but it also
increases the companies'
potential to enter world markets
where higher standards are
required by consumers. The
companies are thus achieving the
dual benefits of environmental
sustainability and increased
profit potential.
The tendency of seeking
certification for market access is
summed up by Rafael Wong,
Executive Vice President of
Reybancorp in Ecuador (the first
banana-producing company in
the world to achieve total

In terms of product and
service innovation, the drive for
environmental sustainability has
resulted in the research and
development of new
technologies in all industries.
One example is the product
PuR, which is a small sachet of
powder that can clean several
litres of water at the cost of less
than fifty cents (U.S.). The
product was researched,
developed and marketed by
Proctor & Gamble and is
helping the world deal with the
growing problem of people not
having access to safe water.
This innovation is one among
thousands including the rapid
developments in wind and solar
power technologies, increasingly'
fuel-efficient cars, plastics
recycling technologies, and
many more.
Actually, with regard to
recycling plastic, Guyana's own
Banks DIH has applied such
technologies in its waste
management system. Basically,
unwanted plastic is chipped and
sold to other companies who
manufacture other products
with it. The operation allows
Banks to get rid of its plastic
waste in an environmentally
friendly way and it has been
possible to do so at no cost

There has been a
suggestion for couriers to take

Police investigating

Herstelling robbery

POLICE were yesterday
continuing their
investigations into the armed
robbery of Herstelling, East
Bank Demerara businessman,
-Salim Khan. At about 12:00
hrs on Friday last, three men
armed with handguns

attacked and robbed Khan of
some $250,000 in cash, in
addition to other articles.
In a statement issued
yesterday, Police said that Khan
and two of his employees were
tending to his hardware store
located along the Herstelling

Public Road when one of the
men entered the premises and
enquired about paint. Shortly
after, two other men appeared
with the two employees whom
they had stuck up, and ordered
them into the store where they
tied up their victims, assaulted

them and demanded cash and
jewellery, the police said.
Khan pointed to a drawer
from which the men removed

$250,000 and according to the
Police, the bandits also stole
some other items including the
keys for Khan's vehicle which
they used to escape.
Some time later, Khan
managed to free himself and
reported the matter to the police,
who later found the stolen
vehicle, PJJ 3475, abandoned at
Grove, East Bank Demerara.

Government secured a loan from
the IDB for construction of
culverts and bridges stretching
from Timehri on the East Bank
of Demerara, to Rosignol in
Berbice, under a programme
called the Bridges Rehabilitation

More than 900 people died in the Jonestown massacre. Now the survivors -

including cult leader Jim Jones' son have turned their experience into a play.

By Dan Glaister

Thursday May 26, 2005
The Guardian
TOWARDS the end of
'The People's Temple'
the play's 12 perform-
ers randomly pick up photo-
graphs from a table. Each pho-
tograph is of one of the 918
people who died at Jonestown,
the socialist-religious com-
munity in Guyana, on Novem-
ber 18, 1978. The photographs
are affixed to filing boxes ar-
ranged on metal shelving
across the stage of Berkeley
Rep, a theatre just outside
San Francisco. It is a chilling
but incomplete memorial.
Many of the dead are still
missing, their faces and sto-
ries lost. But each day, new
photographs arrive.
"Last night I found
Ronaldo's picture," says Margo
Hall, a writer and performer in
'The People's Temple', as she
remembers the previous
evening's performance. "He's
one of the youngsters I grew up
with who went to Jonestown
when he was 11 or 12. And I was
like, oh my God, this is his pic-
ture. But I had to keep going, I
had to get my costume on and
go back out."
Jonestown resonates
throughout San Francisco: 400
unidentified victims of the mas-
sacre are buried in neighboring
Oakland; archives of the move-
ment are kept in the city; survi-
vors live nearby. But it is a dark
part of the city's and the
nation's history, one that, de-
spite its notoriety, has been
shunned. While rumours and cli-
ches abound about the move-
ment, about the charismatic fig-
ure of the Reverend Jim Jones,
about the "mass suicide" in the
jungle, the voices of those who
went there have been muted.
These were the voices that
interested Leigh Fondakowski,
director and co-writer of 'The
People's Temple'. She had just
completed 'The Laramie
Project', an oral reconstruction
of the killing of a gay man in
Wyoming. when she was ap-
proached with the idea of doing
,mnicthinn similar for the
People's Temple. the most com-
mon name given to the commu-
nity, founded by Jones in the
late 1950s.
Fondakowski's interest was
piqued, she says, by "the little
pieces of the untold story: that
* it was a black movement, that it
was a political movement. I be-
came interested in how the whole
history of this movement became
fixated on the Kool Aid and the
bodies in the jungle."

Hundreds of People's
Temple members had gone to the
jungle of Guyana with Jones to
establish Jonestown, a utopian
community incorporating ele-
ments of socialist and religious
dogma. But as pressures
mounted, the experiment col-
lapsed, and Jones ordered the
deaths of his followers. They
were given a cheap generic ver-
sion of the soft drink Kool Aid
laced with cyanide: some meekly
drank the poison; some resisted
and were executed. Some, around
80, survived, and it is through
their voices that Fondakowski
has sought to capture the story
of Jonestown.
"Our main purpose was to
make a piece that showed that
the people in the movement had
agency," she says, "that they
weren't blind sheep, [nor] just
brainwashed followers of Jones.
And it was important to them,
Stephan Jones knows more
than most about Jonestown. The
only son of Jim and Marceline
Jones, he was a rebellious 19-
year-old in 1978, flouting the au-
thority of his father by refusing
to go back to Jonestown and in-
stead staying in the capital
Georgetown with, of all things,
the People's Temple basketball
For Jones, a tall, angular man
who sells office furniture, the
prospect of creating a piece of
theatre from the oral testimonies
offered an opportunity to make
something worthwhile out of the
tragedy. "There have been many,
many people who have come
with all sorts of projects in mind
as a way of making money on
this story," he says, "but I came
to this place where I felt that if
you wanted to do anything of
worth it would be through the
stories of the people.
"You can take something
that's been hailed as tragic or
horrific or weird and turn it
into something of real worth
and value, and shift the mean-
ing of the death of people in
Jonestown. They were offer-
ing not only a way to tell
people's stories but also to
make them more accessible,
because when there's some-
one up there on that stage.
flesh and blood, it is a power-
ful way to do it."
Although the People's
Temple is known for the events
at Jonestown. the movement was
founded some 20 years earlier in
Indianapolis. For several years
Jim Jones led his followers
across the U.S. before settling in
Ukiah. California, in 1965.
There, the People's Temple be-
came- part of the local political
scenee prnsel ining among poor.

African-American communities.
But, says Jones, the nar-
cissism driving his father was
never far below the surface.
"We were ruled, subjugated,
manipulated by a very sick
man. Anything we were say-
ing or doing was tainted by
that. I was behind the scenes
and I saw from much earlier
on it was pretty crazy. His
number one driving force," he
says of his father, "was adu-
lation he needed it like a
drug. That's why things went
so downhill so quickly in
Jonestown. One, he couldn't
hide his madness; two, his
source [of people] was finite."
Jones is adamant that the
egalitarian rhetoric was just that,
rhetoric: "Jim Jones did some
good stuff but the closest defi-
nition of evil was going on at the
same time. And don't be fooled
by the good stuff, that's a big
problem with the Temple. It was
a social movement for a lot of
people, but they were in denial
at the same time."
Eugene Smith has spent
most of his adult life denying his
past, shutting off his memories.
Now in his late 40s, Smith was
a teenager when he went to
Jonestown. His mother, wife and
two children died in Guyana. He
returned home to California. His
voice falters as he attempts to
explain the days that have de-
fined his life.
"After the incident I was un-
able to retrieve any photographs
of my family," he says, "so for
the last 27 years I haven't had
any photos of that time of my
life. There's been a blank right
there. I chose not to discuss it
because there was nothing to
share. It was my tragedy in a
certain sense."
His reluctance to talk was
shaped by the reception he re-
ceived on his return from
Guyana. "When we landed at
JFK people were beating on the
walls and screaming at us. That
was my first thought at being
back in the U.S.: these people
hate me. I made it a point right
there: I'm never going to talk
about this."
Smith even refused to talk
about what happened in
Jonestown with his family. But
last year a researcher at the Cali-
fornia Historical Society put him
in touch with Fondakowski and
Hall. That interview. he says.
"was the first time I'd ever sat
down and just told about it".
What he had to tell is em-
blematic of the conundrum that
surrounds Jonestown: why did
these people go to Guyana. and
why did they die?
"The one common thread."
says Smith. "i'. hat people

wanted a better society and they
wanted a society based not on
what your last name is, not
based on your ethnic origin or
your cultural background but
based on who you are as a per-
son, and what you're willing to
contribute to make it better not
just for yourself but for the
people around you."
Smith's mother, a religious
African-American woman in
search of a helping hand with her
wayward son, was drawn to
Jones's credo of equality and
spirituality. As a teenager grow-
ing up in the nondescript Cali-
fornian city of Fresno, Smith
was attracted to the People's
Temple by its promise of in-
struction and adventure.
"If you were curious and
you were a kid it was a candy
store, a candy store of knowl-
edge," he says, recalling the
print workshops and darkroom,
the visits from dazzling, influen-
tial people including Jane Fonda
and Jimmy Carter's wife.
Ask him why he followed
Jones to Guyana and Smith
answers that his wife and
mother were there, that he
had little choice. But press
him and he responds: "Truth-
fully, it was the adventure I
had been waiting for all my
life. I'm going to be in the
jungle, I'm going to have a
machete. I'm going to discover
the New West."
But the dream became tar-
nished. The charismatic leader
became increasingly irrelevant as
his followers got on with the
day-to-day work of building a
community from scratch, says
Smith. As questions were asked
about the community by rela-
tives, fearful that their loved
ones were being held against
their will, so the pressure began
to take its toll on the already un-
stable Jones. A visit by a U.S.
Congressman, Leo Ryan, asking
questions on behalf of the fami-
lies, was the last straw. Ryan
was murdered as he tried to leave
the settlement. His murder was
followed by the mass poisoning.
Smith survived because he
wasn't in Jonestown on the fate-
ful night. Instead he had been
sent to the nearest town.
Georgetow~n. to help unload
shipments of supplies.
When he found out what had
happened at the settlement.
Smith says. "I just fell down and
cried. Because I knew at that.
point my life was gone." He kept
his experiences to himself for 27
years. until Fondakowski and
Hall arrived at his house to in-
terview him.
'The next:hI r,: 1I knew there
was going to be a character in the
pl.,i bi.ed on myself, he says.

"If this play hadn't happened
this would have stayed hidden.
I was so worried. I thought it
would be like before, I thought
there would be demonstrations
outside the theatre."
There may not have been
demonstrations, but the team
behind the play has been subject
to other pressures. The sheer
volume of material posed prob-
lems for the writers and so did
the close relationships they de-
veloped with the survivors.
"There's a strong desire in
the survivor community to influ-
ence the story," says Greg
Pierotti, a writer-performer in
the piece. "These people have
been dealing with the media for
25 years, and they're very clear
about what they think should be
covered and what shouldn't."
"At one point, Leigh was
being surrounded by the survi-
vors," says Tony Taccone, Ber-
keley Rep's artistic director. "It's
been my job to say this is a play,
however therapeutic it might be
for these people." Watching the
protracted birth of the play,
Taccone felt the attempt to tell
the story behind Jonestown was
unbalancing the work. Documen-
tary was getting the better of
drama. "At one point we said to
her, you've made it too tame,
you're being too nice. At the
heart of this there's a lot of in-
sane behaviour that you cannot
rationalise. It felt reverential."
The play now at Berkeley
Rep is still a work in progress.
But it is a rough jewel, a heart-
breaking story of conviction, de-
lusion, betrayal and death. The
organizers hope it will go on
from Berkeley and even emulate
the success of 'The Laramie
Project'. It is a powerful work
that deserves to be seen.
The last word belongs to
Stephan Jones: "The main thing
that I've noticed," he says when
I ask him if the play has affected
how he feels about his experi-
ence. "is that I feel freed of it,
much freer of it. A lot of this has
been about amends for me, about
making right my wrongs. Every-
body says you were 19, you
couldn't have done any better.
Well. for the most part that's not
"It's been important for
me to look back on my life and
say where did I do harm and
how can I do right. And a big
part of that has been sharing
with them as honestly as I can
my experience of Jonestown,
my wrongs, my motivations,
and be willing to have that
shared with people so that
one, I can be free of it, and,
two, maybe someone can iden-
tify and learn something from

CARICOM professionals mobilise for

CSME challenges

THE Guyana Coalition of
Service Providers (GCSP)
will be launched on
Wednesday in Georgetown.
The GCSP is a mechanism to
prepare service professionals
for the opportunities and
challenges associated with
the Services Regimes of the
CARICOM Single Market
and Economy (CSME).
According to the
CARICOM Secretariat, the
Coalition will represent the
convergence of professional
associations and non-organised
service professionals in Guyana,
the third CARICOM Member

State to join Barbados and St
Lucia in mobilising citizens to
better understand and participate
in intra-Regional service
arrangements under the CSME.
As part of its thrust,
the Coalition is also geared to
familiarise service providers
with the implications of the
Region's hemispheric (e.g. the
Free Trade Area of the
Americas), bilateral (e.g:
Republic), pluri-lateral (the
EU-ACP) and multilateral (e.g.
World Trade Organisation's
General Agreement on Trade in
Services(GATS) agreements. In

this context, Guyana's
Minister of Foreign Trade and
International Cooperation, Mr.
Clement Rohee will deliver the
keynote address at the
launching ceremony.
St Vincent and the
Grenadines is earmarked as
the next Member State to
launch a Coalition of
Service Industries, even as
CARICOM countries race to
the December 2005
proposed date for the
implementation of the
CSME, currently the
flagship of the Community,
the Secretariat said.

While there, the Minister met
with residents to discuss mat-

one of the measures to reduce

In loving and cherished memory of
Born: June 9, 1972 and died May 28,
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal
Memories are treasures no one can steal
Some may forget you now that you are
But we will remember you, no matter how
Deep in our hearts you will always stay
Loved and remembered in every way
Sadly missed by his loving mom Marlene Daisley-Clemonds,
adopted mothers Thelma Leander and Deserie Henderson, ,
grandmothers Gwendoline Vincente and Montelle Boyce,
brothers Colin, Deon and Andre, sisters Michelle of USA,
Melissa, Keisha and Jeanelle, nephews Jadan, Dexter and
Theron, numerous aunts, uncles, relatives and friends,
especially Mayfield McPherson of Barbados who loved and
wished that you were still around.

feated the Georgetown Veterans by three-points (62-59).

For the home team Dale Phillips finished with 16, Wayne New-
ton 14, and Rawle Pollard and Eon Andrews 10 points each.
In the opener of the night, former junior national player Carl
Jackman chalked up a game high 27 points to steer the Sonics to a
28 points blowout (85-57) over the Devastators from Ann's Grove.
Also chipping in for the host team were Richard Braightwaite
who scored 21, Jason Warde who finished with 16, and Ryan
Melville who chipped in with 11.
For the Devastators, Michael Chase finished with 14, Eupn
Joaquin 11, Dexter Walcott eight,and Lawrence Jaferally six,

birthday by retaining

Under-17 crown

By Isaiah Chappelle
KRISTIAN Jeffrey celebrated
his 16"t birthday, yesterday,
retaining the National Un-
der-17 Boys' crown at
Georgetown Club, yesterday.
Jeffrey disposed of Alex
Arjoon and Raphael DeGroot,
his last two opponents at that
level in the National Junior
Championships sponsored by
Woodpecker Products.
Playing on Court 3, he first
beat Arjoon, 9-1, 9-0, 9-4, then
easily gained the title by whip-
ping DeGroot who was clearly
spent and was just going
through the motion. Jeffrey
dropped one point, 9-0, 9-1, 9-
DeGroot had not so long
before beaten Nicholas Narain,
9-0, 9-2, 9-2, in the Under-15
Boys' competition on Court 1.
He consented to play Jeffrey in

dropping only one point, then
went up the Under-15 level and
put away Talisha Williams,
again conceding only one point.
Reigning Under-11 Girls
champion Victoria Arjoon who
is the only entry at that level,
put up a spirited fight against
firstly Ashley Khalil in the Un-
der-13 Girls'competition, but
went down in three games, then
Keisha Jeffrey, again losing in
straight games. She later faced
Alysa Xavier in the Under-15
Girls' division, bowing in
straight games.
Earlier, Xavier beat Ashley
DeGroot in straight games in an
Under-13 encounter, then
needed four games to dispose of
Mary Fung-A-Fat.
In the other Under-15 Girls'
match, defending champion
Daina King needed four games
to turn back Ashley Khalil.

Friday night, Jeffrey began
his quest for the Under-19
crown by defeating Jason Simon

Marcus was due to meet Simon,
last night. Just the three play-
ers are contending for the title.

DOLPHIN Secondary cap-
tured the Under-16 crown of
the Diamond Mineral Water
Schools League rugby cham-
pionships, beating Annandale
Secondary, 10-0, at the Na-
tional Park, yesterday.
National Under-18 utility
player Elliott English scored
one try and Julian Forrest the
That title brings to two Dol-
phin claimed in the champion-
ships, having taken the Under-
18 crown, last week Saturday,
also, defeating Annandale in the
closing match.
But the points margin be-
lied the intensity of the
match and the competitive
spirit it was played in.
No tries materialized in the first
half with both teams battling for
possession, although play was
concentrated in Annandale's half. At
one point, Dolphin went close to
get a try, but were turned back by
the resilient East Coast Demerara
At half time, the match was
deadlocked 0-0 as no team gave
up ground easily. Then in the
second half, Annandale made in-
roads going within a footstep
away from the try line on three
occasions but inexperience in
competition situation, seemed
to be their undoing.

Annandale even kicked
the ball forward into the try
zone but could not down the
ball for a try.
Then Dolphin kicked the
ball forward from the ten-metre
line closer to the right and the
free English raced down on the
left flank, took the ball on the
first bounce and headed to-
wards the try line to down the
ball before Annandale's defence

could catch up.
The second try for Dolphin
came when one of Annandale's
player missed the ball in at-
tempting to kick the ball into
Dolphin's half and Forrest
latched onto the ball close to the
try line, make good the try.
Coordinator of the Youth &
School Development
Programme Noel Adonis said
that both teams gave "sterling"

performance and congratulated
them for the spirit in which they
played the game.
"Annandale did quite well in
this their first tournament."

ited (DDL)'s Alisia Katadin

THE Georgetown Amateur
Basketball Association
(GABA), first-division cham-
pions, Ravens have advanced
to the finals of the Pepsi.
Sonics 'Generation Next'
first-division knock-out bas-
ketball competition.
On Friday night under pro-
test from opponents Courts
Pacesetters at the Cliff Ander-
son Sports Hall, ihe% v.ere able
to record a 74-66 points victory.
If nothing is done by GABA
about the protest then the
Ravens will clash with the win-
ner of the Nets-Colts game
which was scheduled to be
played last night.

The protest was made be-
cause Ravens played Dwayne
Roberts who only last week
was officially traded from the
Linden team, Victory Valley
Chairman of the Pacesetters
basketball club, Dennis Clarke
told Chronicle Sport that what
was done is in contrary to
GABA ruling.
"It was stated by the ex-
ecutives of the GABA, before
the commencement of the
Georgetown season-- which
started in April, that no player
could be transferred from any
club, once the season had of-
ficially started."

Clarke further said that he
wrote the secretary of the
GABA Bruce Haynes concern-
ing the matter in a letter dated
May 25th,, but, even though
Haynes along with another
member of the Association were
present on Friday night at the
Sports Hall nothing was done to
prohibit Roberts from playing.

Ravens power-forward
Kester Gomes, who sustained
an eye injury the first few min-
utes of game one against Bounty
Colts earlier this month, which
resulted in him missing both
games in the finals and the first
round of this competition, was
nothing short of brilliant.
He literally danced
around the Pacesetters de-
fence, scoring close to impos-
sible points with his fall-away
jumpers and one-handed
'throw ins' to finish with a
game high 23 points, nine of
which came from beyond the
Gomes' dominance was not
only offensive, since he grabbed
a number of rebounds, while he
was also credited for assists and
a couple of steals.
Also chipping in for the
winners were, shooting guard
Lugard Mohan who finished
with 16 points, Roberts col-
lected 11, Dameon Liverpool
finished with nine and point-
guard Darcel Harris scored

seven points, which included a
30 footer three pointer.
For the Pacesetters who
played without injured start-
ers Rodwell Fortuin and
Jermaine Warde, it was old
dependable, shooting guard
Mark Trotz who led the at-
tack scoring 19 points.
Skipper of the side Royston
Siland who missed crucial free
throws in the last few minutes
finished with 13 points, while
Naylon Lonke who was in foul
trouble from the first quarter
scored 10 and Earl Nedd
chipped in with seven.
The lead changed eight
times during the first few min-
utes of the game, and with
Lonke on the bench with two
early fouls, Ravens took a four
point lead at the end of the first
quarter (21-17).
At the start of the second,
Pacesetters failed to captalised
from a number of second op-
portunity shots in the paint,
luckily for them, Ravens offen-
sive was not that good either
and the lead stayed the same at
the half (37-33).
The third quarter saw
points from Mohan carrying
the lead to nine points, but,
when Trotz re-entered the
game, quick-buckets by him-
self and Lonke saw the
Pacesetters leading for the
first time since the first quar

tional health that we can all beauty products in a bid to
aspire to, regardless of our ge- achieve clear, glowing skin, thick
netic heritage. The first step is

lustrous hair and sparkling eyes.
While these treatments may en-
hance beauty, they often fail to
tackle the root causes of many
beauty problems that are, in
fact, intimately connected with
our internal health.
The word 'health' comes
from the same root as
'wholeness'. There-
fore, you can con-
ceive of health as a'
state of wholeness or
integration at all levels
of your being. To sim-
plify how enhancing
your appearance
works, you must tend
to the health of all
your iriternal body
systems. Just as
plants require the right*
amounts of sunshine,
water and fertilizer in
order to thrive, so
your body needs, opti-
mum levels of water,
nutrients, exercise and
fresh air if it is to func-
tion effectively. The
amounts may vary
from person to person,
but the nature of the'es-
sential requirements re-
mains the same.
As well.as catering j

for these all important needs,
you need to protect your body
from the damaging effects of en-
vironmental pollution, including
smoking,, alcohol and pesticides
and guard against processed
foods and excessive exposure to
sunshine. At


the same time, it is important to
address psychological and emo-
tional stresses, which have a
negative impact on the body at
a physiological level, depleting
the immune system and inhib-
iting the digestion and absorp-
tion of nutrients.
Therefore, achieving a beau-
tiful body depends on adopting
a balanced and healthy lifestyle,
eating regular well-balanced
meals consisting of unprocessed
organic produce, drinking
plenty of filtered water, exercis-
ing at least four times a week,
limiting your exposure to sun-
shine, cigarette smoke and alco-
hol and engaging in some form
of stress-relieving activity such
as meditation or yoga.
In reward for all your ef-
forts, you will not only develop
smooth, glowing skin, shining
hair, clear eyes and strong well-
shaped nails, you will also feel
a greatly increased sense of vi-
tality and a zest for life. Your
self-image will improve, and, as
a result, your confidence and
self-esteem will grow. Feeling
and acting at your best, you are
likely to attract people to you
- for there is nothing more beau-
tiful than vibrant health.

Eating three well-balanced,
nutritious meals a day, contain-
ing fruit, vegetables and protein,
and snacking between times on
fruit, nuts or seeds, will help
you achieve the daily intake of
nutrients and vitamins your
body needs. Choosing organic
products, where possible, and
eating at regular meal times can
help support your digestive

AO NE of the leading causes of death in the Caribbean is
what doctors refer to as coronary heart disease (CHD).
Coronary heart disease is caused by narrowing of the
coronary arteries, which are the blood vessels that supply the
heart with nutrients and oxygen. When the coronary arteries
become narrowed or clogged by cholesterol and fat deposits
and cannot supply enough blood to the heart, the disease re-

coronary arteries get so thick and blocked that the blood supply to
a portion of the heart is completely cut off, the result is a heart
a tack

Many international studies have shown that a high level of cho-
lesterol in the blood increases the risk of developing CHD. Choles-
terol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in cells ev-
erywhere in the body. Your body uses cholesterol to make cell mem-
branes, hormones, vitamin D, and bile acids which are needed for
the digestion of fats. Only a small amount of cholesterol is needed
by the body. In fact, your body can make all the cholesterol it needs,
and it is not necessary to get additional amounts from the diet.
Cholesterol circulates in the blood attached to proteins called
lipoproteins. The most important ones are low density .lipopro-
teins (LDL) and high density lipoproteins (HDL). The LDL carries
most of the cholesterol in the blood and this LDL cholesterol is
.commonly referred to as 'bad cholesterol'. When the level is too
high in the blood, the excess is deposited on the walls of the arter-
ies. This can contribute to the narrowing or blockage of the coro-
. nary arteries, leading to the development of heart disease. HDL cho-
lesterol,, on the other hand, is known as the 'good.cholesterol', be- ,
cause the HDL moves cholesterol from all parts of the body back

to the liver, where it is broken down and removed eventually from
the body.
Research slows:that lowering the total and LDL ('bad') cho-
lesterol levels significantly reduces CHD Other studies have shown
that cholesterol lowering in people without heart disease greatly
reduces their nsk for developing CHD. including heart attacks and
CHD-related death. This is true for those with high cholesterol lev-
els and for those with average cholesterol levels.

Your blood cholesterol le'el is affected not only by what you
eat but also by how quickly your body makes LDL ('bad') choles-
terol and disposes of it. Many factors help determine whether your
LDL-cholesterol leel is high or low Some of these you can't con-
trol but there are some that \ou can prevent or control.

The three factors Nou can't control are heredity (genes), age
and sex. Your genes influence how high your LDL ('bad') choles-
terol is by affecting how fast it is made or renewed from the blood.
With age, levels tend to increase. After menopause, women tend to
have higher total cholesterol'levels than men of the same age.

The factors-you can control are the ones to which you should
give special attentionn.,

Saturated fat, a type of fat found mostly in foods that come
from animal products are the main nutrients in the foods that make
SLDL cholesterol levels go up. Saturated fat raises LDL-cholesterol

level more than anything else in the diet. Eating too much saturate(
fat and cholesterol may be the main reason for high levels of cho
lesterol and high rates of heart attacks in the Caribbean. Reducing
the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol you eat is a very im
portant step in reducing your blood cholesterol levels.

Excess weight tends to increase LDL cholesterol level. If yot
are overweight and have a high LDL-cholesterol level, losing weigh
is one of the fist steps you should take to reduce your chances o
having heart disease. Weight loss also helps to lower triglyceride,
and raise HDL ('good') cholesterol levels.

Regular physical acniut, may lower LDL cholesterol and raise HDI
cholesterol levels. Walking. swmmunnung, ending a bicycle for at leasi 30 nun
utes a day will help keep your heart muscles strong and healthy.

Alcohol intake increases HDL cholesterol, but does not lowe
LDL cholesterol. Doctors don't know for certain whether alcohol
also. reduces the risk of heart disease. Drinking too much alcohol
can damage the liver and heart muscle, lead to high blood pressure
and raise triglycerides. Because of the risks, alcoholic beverage.
should not be used as a way to prevent heart disease.

Stress over the long-term has been shown in various studies tc
raise blood cholesterol levels. One way that stress may do this i
by affecting your eating and exercise habits. For example, when som
people are under stress, they console themselves by eating fatty
foods.' The saturated fat and cholesterol in these foods contribute
to higher levels of blood cholesterol. Excessive worry, anxiety oi
stress over long periods of time may be harmful so it is good foi
people to learn to relax when work is over and not to drive them-
selves to extremes in their lifestyles.

In addition to high cholesterol, there are other factors that cal
increase your chance of developing heart disease. The more, risk fac

Intricate body work

prompts major wins

for local workshop

B. Isaiah Chappelle

"AND the winner is
Thai iantalising Honda
Civic carted off some five tro-
phies in the 2003 car show at
Everest ground, a show that is
taking root as. a popular, but
competitive event.
The car owner usually gets
the accolades, but it's the exper-
tise of the auto body workshop
that prepared the vehicle that
really produces the winning
Spiderman on that Septem-
ber 16 night, showcased the
craftsmanship of Ramchand's
Auto Body workshop of Good
Hope, East Coast Demerara.
Spiderman won the Best
Looking, the Cleanest and Shini-
est,Best Graphics and Best In-
terior prizes. The car, also, won
Best Engine.
More prizes for the work-
shop rolled in through a Toyota
Rav 4 which was declared the
Best Looking SUV (Sport Util-
ity Vehicle), Cleanest and Shini-
est and Best Graphics. It, also,
won the Best Engine.
Ramchand's Auto Body
first ventured into the car show
in 2001 with its own vehicle, a
1980 Pontiac two-door car that
won the Best Antique Car prize.
That success drove Anand
Harichand, son of the owner of
the workshop, into the car
show craze.
The following year, the
workshop prepared Anthony
Pires' Mitsubishi Eclipse that

Then came ihe big success
with Spiderman in 2003. a %e-
hicle that still leaves people in
awe because of the hype it cre-
ated at the car show and in the
media. It is still the talk of the
town with its dancing moves
through special hydraulics.
Last year, the workshop
claimed the Best Looking and
Best Interior prizes with a
Mitsubishi Mirage, and Best
Looking SUV with a Toyota
And this year, at the
Guyflag car show at Ruimzeigt,
Anand entered his own Daihatsu
Y-RV(R) and took away the
Category 'A' Best Looking Ve-
hicle prize.
The prize-winning work of
the auto body workshop high-
lights dedication to excellence
and experience spanning some
30 years.
Ramchand Harichand
started auto body work way
back in 1975, toiling alone in Bee
Hive on the East Coast
He had just completed sec-
ondary schooling at the Hindu
College at Cove and John. His
hobby was mechanics doing
engines and he took an ICS
home study course in auto me-
chanics and diesel engines.
But he did not like the
grease involved-in the trade and
reasoned that even with good
work, a mechanic could be
blamed should an engine de-

I *

velop problems through bad
handling in driving.
His uncle, with whom he
lived, had a workshop to main-
tain his trucks and Ramchand
started doing body work on the
vehicles with Peter Beckles who
became his friend.
Ramchand saw in auto body
work a lucrative trade, and a
means of getting away from the
grease in mechanics.
In 1977, he got his big
break. He single-handedly
worked on his best friend
John's Morris Oxford HZ
8070. John-was impressed
with his work and saw his po-
tential. But Ramchand had
no money to finance a work-
John encouraged his father
to assist Ramchand. He got a
$500 loan and he bought a com-
plete welding set and other nec-
essary tools to start a small
workshop. There was no turn-
ing back from there.
He worked alone. In those
days, there were no spare parts
so all damaged parts had to be
straightened, welded back and
ground to finish. Cars were even
cut in half to replace badly
damaged sections. Up to the late
'80s and early '90s, the only
spare available was the glass.

"No matter how badly a ve-
hicle was damaged, you had to.
restore it," he recalled.
After he married in 1978,
his wife would hold the measur-
ing tape and ensured that the
parts did not move while her
husband was welding.
In 1981, he moved to
Prashad Nagar with his in-laws
in the city and employed a six-
man staff from the East Coast.
"It was from there that the
big jump started. I became more
recognized and began working

for various companies."
In 1990, Ramchand moved
to Good Hope where the work-
shop is now located. There, he
repairs crashed vehicles, does
detailing (complete cleaning,
compounding and polishing and
interior) and customising (put-
ting on accessories like flares to
enhance the look of the vehicle).
Artists may be asked to do the
intricate designs found on some
of the vehicles.
But there was one challenge
that auto body workshops

faced: getting the right quality of
paints. They had to cope with
different types of paints and
worked by trial and error.
Then in 1999, Ramchand
met Bobby Katwaroo from
Bumper to Bumper located in
East Street, Georgetown who
introduced him to the Max
Meyer range. In 2003, Bobby
again introduced him to the
top-class internationally ac-
claimed PPG Global. The

analysis done in
Guyana has dem
onstrated that
more that half of all persons
65 years and older have not
visited a dentist for five or
more years. This suggests
that a serious need exists for
dental care for the elderly.
This author initiated the Na-

lated to many of the chronic
disease, often associated with
aging. However, it does not
seem as if the elderly treat their
condition with due regard.
Two major problems have
been citied as creating barriers to
proper rehabilitative and pre-
ventive dental care for older
persons. The first is the dental

This is true even when low cost
or free care is offered. In fact,
even after this author introduced
through NIS free treatment
programme to all pensioners,
not enough of the elderly have
taken advantage of the
programme. In surveys. specifi-
cally related to oral health,. older
persons often claim that they do
not need it.
Not only must the elderly
be educated on the need for
proper care of the oral cavity

regardless of the presence of
natural teeth, but education
is also needed with respect to
the potential nutritional
problems that often result
from limited or non-existent
chewing capacity. This is im-
portant particularly for the
large number of toothless
elderly who do not own or
wear dentures.
The second barrier to reha-
bilitative and preventive dental
care for older persons is the at-

tilude to the dentist who believe
or are trained to believe. that
older persons are poor candi-
dates for dental rehabilitation
and preventive care. The major
cause of these attitudes is the
lack of understanding about the
nature and processes of human
aging and their relationship to
oral health. These attitudes are
further exacerbated by the fail-
ure of dentists to adequately
communicate with older per-
sons and to understand the older
persons' social and economic
Some misconceptions
need to be clarified. How long
should one wait after having
extractions done before being
fitted with dentures? The an-

takes for the cortical bone to

result in progressive absorp-

If someone has a 'slack'
denture, what can be done to
remedy the situation? First of
all, if you have any teeth on
the same jaw with the slack
denture, your dentist can ap-
ply wire clasps to the denture
which will hold on to the re-
main teeth or tooth so as to
improve retention. If the den-
ture in a total one which has
become slack after it has
been worn for more that
three years, then a
rebasement can be done.
Rebasement means that the
denture is remolded on a
fresh model of the jaw in

bered that as we get older we
shrink simply because with
the increase of age, each cell

Guyanese returned

home to escape

$52,000 bank debt

Local Court granted Bank of Nova Scotia Judgment

N 1981, Canadian-based
Guyanese, Claude
Forde, who borrowed
thousands of dollars
from the Bank of Nova
Scotia, Canada, and pledged
his two motor cars as security
for payment, returned to
Guyana with his vehicles
without honouring his debt
and without the knowledge of
the Bank.
When the Bank of Nova
Scotia approached the Guyana
Court for justice, Forde, firstly
denied the charge and secondly
claimed that since the transac-
tion took place in Canada, a for-


eign country, the Guyana Court
did not have jurisdiction to try
and determine the matter.
But the Guyana High Court
Judge, Mr. Lennox Perry (now
President of the Public Service
Appellate Tribunal) who deter-
mined the action, held that al-
though the transaction was made
in Canada, the local Court had
jurisdiction to hear the matter,
as long as the defendant was in
the jurisdiction of that Court.
After hearing the claim
brought by the Bank of Nova
Scotia, Justice Perry decided in
favour of the Bank and granted
judgment against Forde in the
sum of $52,728.22.
Dissatisfied with the deci-
sion of the local Judge, Forde
appealed to the Guyana Court
of Appeal which dismissed the
appeal and affirmed the sen-
tence of the trial Judge.
The ruling of the Guyana
Court of Appeal made it pos-
sible for a plaintiff from a for-
eign country to successfully
bring a civil action against a de-
faulting defendant in Guyana
despite the fact that the offend-
ing act was done outside of
The supporting case is now
the 1988 civil appeal of Claude
Forde versus the Bank of Nova
In its decision, the Appel-
late Court, comprising Chancel-
lor of the Judiciary, Keith
Massiah and Justices of Appeal
Rudolph Harper and Cecil
Kennard, it was held that High
Court Judge, Lennox Perry was
right when he entered judgment
in favour of the Bank of Nova
Among other things, the
Bank claimed that Forde had
borrowed $52,728.82 on two
promissory notes and had
-iar-nafl hi- +-rn motorvarc as

The Bank, further alleged
that Forde failed to honour his
agreement, and that contrary to
arrangements in the contract, he
removed the two cars from
Canada without the knowledge
of the Bank.
Before the High Court,
Forde, among other things, con-
tended that the Guyana Court
did not have jurisdiction to hear
and determine the matter.
But the trial Judge found
otherwise and disclosed that
the law to be applied in the
particular case was the law of
Guyana relating to contract.
It was pointed out that
once the defendant is physically
present in Guyana, however
brief his sojourn, and he is per-

rge Barclay
sonally served with the writ or
equivalent process, then the
High Court of Guyana has ju-
risdiction to entertain the action
even if the cause arose in a for-
eign country.
Attorney-at-law, Mr. R. S.
Persaud represented the Bank
of Nova Scotia while Lawyer,

Mr. Martin Stephenson had ap-
peared for Forde, both at the
High Court and. the Appellate
In his decision at the
High Court, Justice Perry
had said: "I agree with the
submissions made by counsel
for the plaintiff Bank and I
overruled the; submissions of
counsel for the defendant on
the aspect of the case."
Counsel for the defendant
further submitted that the Court
had no jurisdiction as there was
no evidence as to what was the
proper law to be applied. He
said that Canadian Acts were
mentioned in the contract. He
conceded that the action was one
in personalm'.
"In my view the action be-
ing in personal, the law to be

"I would like to referlto the
ruling of Vieira J. as he then was
in the case of Mercantile Credit
Company Limited -v- Edgar
Lawrence Combermach Civil
Action No. 1855/1978. In that
case, a summons was filed in
Chambers in which the appli-
cant (defendant) sought a dis-
missal of a specially endorsed
writ filed by the plaintiffs (re-
spondents) an English Commer-
cial Firm in which they claimed
$6,046.93 Guyana dollars being
the balance of an amount due
owing and payable by the ap-
plicant as certain over due
promissory notes executed in
England by the applicant in
favour of the respondents for
value received.
"It was argued by the appli-
cant that there is a want of ju-
risdiction in this Court to enter-
tain the claims in that the re-
spondents are aliens seeking to
assert a claim contrary to pub-
lic policy and to private interna-
tional law since the cause of ac-
tion arises in another jurisdic-
tion, to wit England, and not in
the State of Guyana.
"The respondents denied
that there was a want of juris-
diction in this Court to entertain
their claim submitted that as-
suming but not admitting that
there was a want of jurisdiction,
the defendant (applicant) had
asked for adjournments for the
purpose of coming to a settle-
ment. Several arguments were
put forward in that case and I
would like to quote from the
said ruling of Vieira J. as it was
a ruling with which I entirely
agree," Justice Perry had said.
He went on to say: "I have
overruled the submissions made by
counsel for the defendant. I accept
and believe the uncontradicted evi-
dence led in the case of the plain-
tiff Bank. The defendant has sought
to deprive the plaintiff Bank of the
benefit of a judgment against him
by placing his identity in dispute
and his handwriting when he well
knows that they are his. He im-
pressed me as being a dishonest
"I have found as a fact from
the evidence that the defendant
Claude Forde as sued herein is
one and the same person who
signed the promissory notes
dated 15th of May, 1981 and
25th June, 1981 respectively
and the chattel mortgage and
conditional sale agreement.
"Judgment was given in
favour of the plaintiff Bank for
the sum of $52,728.22 Guyana
dollars costs $1,500.
"It is ordered that the de-

timistic manner. This discovery
was so new that the frank ex-
pression of sensuality and un-
inhibited behaviour in films led
to a production code of 'mor-
als' being imposed by State and
religious groups on what was
shown. In order to rise above
this restriction, directors, actors
and screen writers devised cre-
ative methods to imply liberal
ideas, and sexuality, but without
the full visibility seen today.
Styles of posture, gesture, slang
and comedy, were introduced
along with sophisticated and
stylish social behaviour, hence,
the relevance and freshness of
Rogers' films today, despite the
old-time buildings, cars, etc.,
which only an idiot would dis-.
like such films for. .
The 1930s saw the inven-
tion of a screen style called the
'Screw-ball comedy',brilliantly
played by actresses like Myrna
Loy, Barbara Stanwyck, Jean
Arthur, Claudette Colbert, Irene
Dunne, Katherine Hepburn, and
Rosalind Russell. This sort of
highly popular film emphasised
something of crucial importance
to everyone:..Ho.p to Find the
right romantic partner, how to
enjoy oneself, how to overcome

A S SHE walked into
her friend's house,
her eyes fell upon
the one object she
never thought she'd see here
in Guyana.
"Dreamcatcher! Just the
thing I've been looking for all
along!" she exclaimed, hardly
able to contain her excitement at
the sight of the talisman of sorts
that has its roots in the Great
Plains, home to the Ojibway,
-also known as the Chippewa,
among other peoples of Native
North American Indian origins.
For weeks she had been
casting around for something ap-
propriate to name her business;
something distinctive that would
set her apart from the competi-
tion, yet not make her appear
too ostentatious.
"For about two months I
Was looking for names. I had
dozens and dozens of names, but
none of them really said any-
thing," she said, pleading ano-
nymity. Among those that
readily came to mind were 'Casa
del Amor' (which would have
been applicable, given the cir-
cumstances), and 'Colours', the
latter because colour is what
decorating is all about.
"But for some reason, when
I walked in and I saw her
dreamcatcher," she said, referring
to her friend who had actually
made the little trinket herself, "I
said: 'This is it; I'm gonna cap-
lure everybody's bad dreams and
they'll only have good dreams.'"

,end, dreams are really messages

ORN on the coastal
belt of Guyana
which was 'mo
notonously flat and
unattractive, consisting
mainly of mud, heavy clay
and then more mud', Jack
Bayley described himself as a
'mudhead'. And in his first
and only novel, he wrote
about what he knew, the
mudheads the peoples and
places of his time, and of co-
lonialism at crossroads, mak-
ing appropriate use of lan-
guage as in the following
phrases, 'throwing cuffum in
his/her grave' and 'donkey
years'. But first he had to dis-
tance himself from that situ-
ation in order to put it into
context; burdened by so much
incriminating evident and in-
side information, he had to
write from a distance.
In 1975, Bayley 'old out his
thriving business to T. Geddes
Grant Limited in order to retire
to Barbados, the birthplace of
his mother. That business,
started as an import Irading
establishment. but later

manufactured clothing under the
well-known 'Esquire' and
'Windsor' brand names.
The move into commerce
came in 1949 when he resigned
as Secretary to British Guiana
Sugar Producers Association.
Before that, he was in charge of
the Labour Welfare Department
of the same organisation.
Before his direct
involvement with the sugar
industry, he served in the
Colonial Secretariat, first as a
Probationer in 1934 then as a-
Class Three Clerk in 1935.
* For the Bayley clan it was
either service in the Colonial
Secretariat or business. B. H.
Bayley, father of junior Bayley'
was Third Class Clerk at the
colonial service and Clerk in the
Department of Mines. Other
close relatives, B. S. and H. C.
Bayley, were Commission
Agents and General Importers
of Lot 12 Water Street,
Against that backdrop,
Jack Bayley wrote 'The
Mudheads' which Joey King
in his.review of the book,
Slabroek News of April 14,
1991. said il "started out more

a memoir". This significant
historical novel was set in
British Guiana in the late
1930s, giving 'a compelling
insight into the lives of the
privileged white elite who
had one set of rules for
themselves and another for
those who took their orders'
leading to the 'first
rumblings of discontent from
the Guianese working class,
signalling the end of the old
colonial order'.
This novel was first
published in Great Britain in
1990 by Associated Publishing
Combine and printed by Peepal
Tree Press, Leeds, England.
David DeCaires said that getting
a first novel published is
difficult for anyone much
more so for a man in his
three-scores-and-ten years. It
is suspected that Bayley had
to pay his way to
publication. And it was a
worthy effort. A Rishi Singh of

Jack Bayley was born on
September 28, 1915 to a
Guyanese father, B. H.
Bayley, and a Barbadian
mother. The junior Bayley
enjoyed the privilege of
attending the best schools at
the time Queen's College
and St. Stanislaus College.
His brother, Peter Bayley,
distinguished himself in
cricket by scoring 268 runs
against Barbados at
Bridgetown, a record that
launched the writing career
of one of our oldest living
women writers, Sheila King,
who narrated that
outstanding innings in
poetry. King came into
contact with Jack Bayley
while she was Probation and
Welfare Officer.
In 1937, Jack Bayley was
employed at Leasehold Oilfields
Limited, Trinidad and Tobago.
In 1940, he married to Vera

Audrey Strang of Camp Street,
North Cummingsburg, one of
the more beautiful young ladies
of the time.
In 2004, 'The Mudheads'
created quite some attention
locally, regionally and further
afield when Emeritus Professor
Frank Birbalsingh of York
University and I reviewed the
novel on my television
programme. 'Between The
Lines'. In fact, so great was the
interest that I harboured
thoughts of lobbying for a
reprinting of such a significant
Guyanese book. That idea is
growing stronger in the light of
the reprinting of Edward

Jenkins' 'Lutchmee and Dilloo',
first published in 1877 and Ian

Jack Bayley died some

all of which place stiain on your

stores of vitamins and minerals,
supplements can be of benefit.
The important thing to re-
member is that supplements are
just that; they supplement a
healthy diet, not replace it. Vi-
tamins such as A, C and E all
antioxidants that are required
by the skin for repair and re-
newal and to help protect it
against premature ageing, are
found in many fruits and veg-
etables. However, people who
don't eat adequate amounts of
these vitamins may have to in-
clude supplements in their daily
health routine. These vitamins
also help protect the skin
against pollution and other en-
vironmental enemies. Such fac-
tors cannot be controlled very
easily, so it may be necessary
to supplement your diet with
protective vitamins in order to
maintain maximum defence.
Other vitamins and minerals
may be needed because of in-
dividual requirements. For
example, they can help to re-
store flexibility to the joints,
relieve menopausal symp-
toms or regulate blood sugar
levels, as it may not be pos-
sible to meet these needs
through diet alone. If you do

Leatherbacks in Guyana

The Leatherback and other species of ocean

turtles find their way up in the Northwestem loca-
tlions of Guyana each year., They travel there from
locations many thousand miles across the ocean.

At ron time in Guyana the Leatherback, Green,
Hawksbill, and Oliver Riley ocean turtles suffered
great destruction, but they are now cited amnongthe
endangered wildlife species in this country.

Wildlife management is now applied conscien-
tiously to the preservation of al sea turtles whose
nesting season brings them to Guyana's shell
beaches which stretch from Vtini Point to the
mouth of the Pomeroon River.

Turtte conservation is the planned protection and
control of the numbers of turtles and their offspring
that come on to the shell shores of Guyana,

Conservation is an effort put in place to ensure
that the interest of the present and future genera-
tions of Guyanese is sustainable and healthy to-
wards the sea turtles. This can only result in the
improvement of the turtle environment.

Already tthe practice of died sailed turtles and
iheir eggs thatweie in constant, shipment to Brazil
where the comirr-oies were sold at relatively high
prices is now not so well known.

uyar a's is in active participation in turtle con-
ser.'alion Fishing vessels are asked to be fitted out
with T ED i,turtle exclusion devices)- netsltiatequip
the coastal fishing vessels against catching turtles.

The Guyana Defence Force Coast Guard Is
also there to protect the long stretch shell
beaches and enforce the country's wildlife and
protection laws.

tors that you have, the greater
the risk of developing the dis-
The factors for CHD that you
cannot control are age and family
history. As you get older, your risk
increases. A family history of early
heart disease also increases risk. If
your parents or grandparents lived
a long time free of heart disease,
there's a good chance you will too.
Fortunately, the other risk factors
are ones that can be prevented or
controlled. What are these?

High blood pressure is dan-
gerous because it makes the
heart work too hard. High blood
pressure and heart disease are
closely related. Actually, high
blood pressure and overweight
often accompany each other.
When the weight is brought
down, the blood pressure fre-
quently returns to normal. If
you are of normal weight, and
your blood pressure is still high,
the doctor can give you some
medicine which will help keep
the pressure near normal. It is

also important to remember that
various'studies have shown that
those of Afro-Caribbean descent
are at higher risks of high blood
pressure than other racial
groups. The reason for this is
still not fully explained.

Obesity is a major risk fac-
tor because it is associated with
many of the other factors that
increase risk for CHD. Heart
disease occurs two and one-
third times more often in people
who are 25 per cent over their
normal weight than among
people of the same age whose
weight is within healthy age.
Overweight or obese persons are
more likely to have high blood
pressure, high cholesterol levels
and diabetes, all of which in-
crease your chance of develop-
ing heart disease. The distribu-
tion of body fat may also affect
risk. Excess fat in the abdomen
poses the highest risk for CHD.

Inactivity or a sedentary
lifestyle increases risk. Partici-
pating in regular physical activ-

ity or exercise helps to prevent
obesity, increase HDL 'good'
cholesterol levels, and may help
to prevent the onset of diabe-

From the point of view of
coronary heart disease, smoking
cigarettes appears to be a major
hazard. The risk of heart disease
to smokers is over two times
that of non-smokers. Also,
smoking tends to lower the age
at which coronary heart disease
occurs and also tends to
neutralise the protective effects
that females have at the younger
age. It is good advice to stop
smoking if you're interested in
protecting yourself against pos-
sible heart disease.

Diabetes, which is one of
the most common conditions in
the Caribbean, has now been
shown to be a big risk factor for
coronary heart disease. Uncon-
trolled diabetes can greatly in-
crease your risk of coronary
heart disease. It is thus impor-
tant that you prevent the onset

Ramchand now uses the PPG Global line filler, polyester putty, thinner, primer, paint, clear coat
and the silicone-free compound. Bumper to Bumper sponsored Anand Harichand's Daihatsu in the
recent car show, supplying the complete range of products.
"The end product is the paint. Nobody sees what is done before the finish. It is the finish that
wins prizes. And that's really due to the paint," Ramchand said.
When a vehicle goes into the workshop, it is stripped completely. If it is a crashed vehicle, damage
is assessed to see where and how to start straightening or replacing parts and then welding is done.
The vehicle is next sanded thoroughly to clean the surface and gaps and grooves filled, after which
the filler is rubbed down to the desired level. Polyester putty is then applied to get rid of the surface
of scratches and pinholes. The surface is sprayed with a primer filler and sanded thoroughly again
before spraying the paint.
"The final sanding is the most technical and delicate part to get the desired finish," Ramchand
Finally, the clear coat is sprayed and after drying for a day, it is buffed (compounded and polished)
to give the vehicle the sheen that elicits the oohss' and the 'aahs', and ultimately grabs the prizes at car

of diabetes and this can be done
through healthy living (healthy
eating and exercise) and ensur-
ing that your weight stays
within the healthy range for
your height. If you already have
diabetes, then you must try to
keep youriblood sugar as close
to normal as possible. This can
also be achieved through a
healthy lifestyle and in some
cases with addition of medica-
tion. Thp key factor here is that
you must ensure that you lead
a healthy lifestyle and that you
monitor your blood glucose to
ensure .that it stays within the
normal range.

The .key to all this pre-
vention is moderation in your
eating and living habits. Your
diet needs to be low in fat and
especially saturated fat and
cholesterol, your weight
should be within the healthy
range for your height and
you should at least try to do
30 minutes of physical activ-
ity every day. Prevention and
control of high blood pressure
and diabetes are also critical.

egalitarian films, with, Rogers as the sensual nightclub singer
and dancer who becomes the lover and wife of a botany
profession and future college principal played by James
Stewart. And why qot? Imagine the social gossip and bias they
stir up? 'Vivacious Lady' is a must-see film which proves the
precious social value!of entertaining Hollywood films of the
Rogers wbuld make many other profound film classics like
'Kitty Foyle' of 1940, 'Roxie Hart', 1942, 'Heartbeat', 1946, where
she plays a pretty piclkpocket trained to pick a diplomat, but again
the unusual couple find love instead. 'Storm Warning' of 1950 is an
amazing anti-racial social film in which Rogers plays a sensitive
model who comes to a Southern town and discovers her brother-in-
law is a member of;the racial Ku Klux Klan. The film was a stun-
ning wake-up call to! white American families.
Rogers, like many other Hollywood artists made many films
with left-wing sentiments which expressed simply a desire for more
equality and fairness in American everyday life, rather than any po-
litical desire to promote communist parties. In 'Tender Comrade'
of 1943, Rogers played a factory worker in a war-time defence plant.
At one point in the films she says a famous line: "Share and share
alike, that's democracy!" which sent jitters through her family.
Ginger Rogers, like many other idealistic Hollywood ac-
tors of the '40s and '50s had a deep fear of being 'black-listed
by the State and losing their jobs, so they made films express-
ing their social sentiments, but spoke like anti-communists
off-screen, because they really only believed in American demo-
cratic ideals. These Ginger Rogers films however, serve as a
vital inspiration to make our personal and social everyday lives
vehicles for unbiased and satisfying human love among our-
selves. They are films of fun, social ideals and morals which
can provide delightful evenings of tasteful civilised time spent
with snacks, drinks, lovers and friends, before the movie screen.

master at creating this gothic

liciously chilling effect of a
Hitchcock movie.
Leila Locke's 'Claudette
Reading' is a study in concen-
tration. The picture is decidedly
not a still-life, though a vase of
flowers, drapes with organic
motifs and a wedge of water-
melon are so prominently a part
of the work that Claudette and

her open book seem to be all of
a piece with the picture.
And then there is Marjorie
Broodhagen's 'Lukanani and
Lemons'. in the style with
which we are all too familiar, the
painstaking detail of shimmering
scales and the precise cross-sec-
tions of the fruit, all facets of
the distinctive Broodhagenism.
The 'Shave Ice Cart', an
early Cletus Henriques, was ex-
ecuted in the period before he
began experimentation with
jewel-like shapes and effulgent
colour, mirroring the lavish pal-

died early in his life, but not be-
fore he had fashioned a gallery
of incandescent pieces.

LAST week, we dealt with
changes in the old dog's muscle
tone, his joints and the need for
a sensible exercise programme.
Let us look at how some of the
sensory organs and their asso-
ciated structures deteriorate
with age.

A gradual but progressive
loss of hearing manifests itself
in the older dog. There is no
practical medial or surgical
method to reverse or counteract
progressive senile deafness. Of
course, if the reduction in the
dog's capability to hear clearly
is precipitated by a build-up of
wax in the ear (common in old
dogs that are not optimally
cared for), then the simple
cleansing of the ear would suf-
fice to alleviate the problem.

Very often, the build-up of
mess in the ear (especially if it
is accompanied by a foul odour
and liquid discharge) is due to
an infection. If you suspect an
infection let your vet make the
definitive diagnosis and advise
on the treatment.

Generally, you can do the
cleansing at home. Moisten a
cloth with mineral oil; wrap it
around your finger and insert
that finger into the ear canal as
far as it will go. Wipe the sur-
face of that part of the canal
which you can reach as well as
the inner flap of the ear. In this
way, you will be removing ex-
cess wax and debris.
Folds and crevices which
cannot be reached with the cloth
can be cleaned with a cotton
tipped application (e.g. a Q-tip)
moistened with Mineral Oil.

NB: Don't push the Q-
tip deep into the ear.
Someone must be
holding the dog's head
still. We don't, want you
to damage the air drum,
or the delicate skin
lining the ear canal.

In many older dogs a gray-
ish-white or bluish haze appears
in that part of the eye which
can be seen through the pupil.
It is due to aging of the lens. It
should not be mistaken for a
cataract. While senile cataracts
do occur in dogs, they are not
nearly as common as in hu-
mans. Loss of vision may be due
to retinal disease or another eye




Surgical removal of cata-
racts usually is reserved for
dogs having difficulty getting
around because of loss of sight.
Most dogs adjust well to a
gradual loss of vision, if they re-
tain the ability to hear.

Tooth and gum disease is
common in the older dog and
interferes with eating. With
proper treatment, suffering is
relieved; the dog is more com-
fortable, and his nutritional sta-
tus improves. Loose teeth
should be removed. If your dog
has lost his teeth and is unable
to chew dry food, soak it for 20
minutes before feeding it, or
feed canned food formulated for

Dry biscuits help to reduce
tartar and calculus. But bones
and bone chips should not be
given to the older dog. They
make the stool hard and can lead
to bowel difficulties.

Peel a1nl cut the .eggplant into slices 1/4 inch thick.
Stiyer the eggplant slices in a colander, salting each

(Flour enough slices for one batch only, or the flour and the
slices will will becoihe damp and the slices will not fry
well.) Heat the oil to hot in a large skillet and lightly brown
the eggplant on both sides. Line a colander with paper
towels and drain the slices, one layer at a time, covering
each layer with more paper towels. When all the slices
have been fried, set aside, reserving the frying oil, and
prepare the sauce. Drain 1/4 cup of the oil in which the
eggplant has been fried through paper towels into a clean
skillet. Saut6 the chopped onion in the oil until transparent
but not browned. Add the meat, basil, bay leaves, salt,
pepper, and cinnamon. Saut6 until the meat is on longer
pink, then add the tomatoes and tomato paste and simmer .
for 15 minutes. Bring 5 quarts and 2 tablespoons coarse
salt to a boil in a large pasta pot and boil the rigatoni for 4
minutes only. Add 2 cups of cold water to st6p the cooking
process. Drain; then mix with the butter and Parmesan.
Remove the bay leaves from the sauce and add the sauce to
the pasta, mixing thoroughly. Preheat the oven to
350F.Line a deep ovenproof dish with eggplant slices (we-
use a 10-inch: 25-cm terracotta casserole). Add a layer of
half the pasta, then a layer of eggplant slices and a layer of
the remaining pasta, ending with eggplant slices. Bake for
35 m in utes, or until lightly browned.
