THE administration of
Region Three (West
Demerara/Essequibo Islands)
has pledged to follow the
progress of the region's top
performers and has urged
them to remain industrious
and exercise diligence in their
quest for academic excellence.
A release from the Regional
Administration Office said the
promise and charge were
delivered Friday by Regional
Chairman, Esau Dookie when he
addressed parents, teachers and
pupils at the Leonora Primary
"As of now, it would be
different. Gone are the days
when our students graduated to
schools outside of our region and
we forgot to look at their
performances in other
environments. The Regional
Administration would be
following your progress closely
as you seek to enhance your
scholastic career," Dookie told

the students.
The school is credited
with the most outstanding
overall performance at this
year's Secondary Schools
Entrance Examinations
(Common Entrance). The
school had an unmatched 15
students in the top 100 SSEE
students. One student, Saieed
Khalil copped the second spot
in the top 10. Another,
Mahendra Ramgobin also
placed in the top 10. They
were followed by St.
Margaret's, West Ruimveldt,
Graham's Hall which all had
eight each, and the New
Guyana School with seven in
the top 100.
Of the 185 students from the
school who sat the examinations,
33 received places at President's
College, 21 at Queen's College,
six at Bishops' High and six at
St. Stanislaus College.
"Our pride must not be
short-lived. We need to build

on our present achievement
so that our future can be
bright. You have made the
first step in showing us that
you are the leaders of
tomorrow. And for that we are
indeed grateful," Dookie
He said the students made
not only themselves, parents
and teachers proud, but also the
entire Region. The Regional

Chairman urged the students to
stay on their course, remain
industrious, and exercise the
same diligence in their quest for
academic excellence
Dookie paid tribute to the
teachers and Headmaster
Mohamed F. Khan, who was a
"model" and was worthy of
emulation. He also congratulated
the parents who he said stuck to
their guns and gave invaluable

Over the past ten years, the
school has performed well,

T APPEARS that the
Kaieteur gang just
does not like me and I
am sooooooo down.
I just love that place it to
me is one of the most awe-in-
spiring spots in the world.
I have climbed the Great
Wall of China, rambled around
some hot spots in New York,
London, Miami, Atlanta, plod-
ded through the snow on an Or-
egon mountain, cavorted on
beaches in the Caribbean and
sampled several other delights in
other places.
There is a string of other
wonders of the world that I have
yet to see but nothing beats the
Kaieteur lure.
Its awesome splendour
speaks to the soul and one can
never have too much of this
wondrous nectar of nature.
And that's why I was
thrilled last week at the pros-
pect of once again visiting that
wonder of nature, of including
it on my list of places to visit
here while on vacation.
To their credit, the Tourism
Ministry, the Guyana Tourism
Authority and the Kaieteur Na-
tional Park have come up with
a subsidized package to pro-
mote the Kaieteur Falls as a site
for Guyanese living here to
visit, instead of vacationing in
other countries.
I have always considered
myself lucky that I have been
able to see Kaieteur several
times and to visit a fair bit of
our wonderful country.
.In spite of its immense
problems, Guyana is still a
beautiful place and it is the only
home for me. It has been through
hell but I am convinced that
Guyanese for whom there is no
better place they would call
home would persevere and help
it one day realise its true poten-

A visitor, years ago, re-
marked that this was God's
own country but that some-
body had made a mess of it and
I sadly had to nod in agreement.
Life is still tough but we can
make it and we can always take"
inspiration from God's chosen
spots on earth here, like
There are so many other
treasures here in the
Rupununi, the Pakaraimas,
Berbice, Demerara and the
sprawling Essequibo that it is
a pity that so many living in
Guyana feel compelled to
sample nature's delights in other
I feel sorry for those
Guyanese I meet who have
sought better fortunes over-
seas and who take pride in
talking about their trips to
the Grand Canyon, Niagara
Falls and other spots in the
United States, for example,
but who have not yet seen
the Kaieteur or sipped the
other intoxicating brews in
the land of their birth.
One factor against most
Guyanese not being able to visit
local beauty spots is, of course,
the almost prohibitive costs
tour operators impose. Some
who want to visit have com-
plained that it is often cheaper
to take vacations overseas than
to try to take in the top spots
at home.
The problem is that tour
operators here cater almost ex-
clusively for the foreign tourists
and it may not be as profitable
for them to try to lure locals to
their offerings.
And it is in this regard
that the Kaieteur promotional
venture the Tourism Minis-
try, the Tourism Authority
and the Kaieteur National

Park have launched should
be lauded. Making it afford-
able for people living here to
visit places like Kaieteur can
pay huge dividends, as gov-
ernments and state authori-
ties in other countries where
local tourists are a great
source of revenue have
So I was among those who
last week warmly embraced this
ready reaching out by the Tour-
ism Ministry and its partners.
Way to go, I applauded.
As I am on vacation, and not
wanting to miss out on a bar-
gain to see Kaieteur again, I on
Monday called up the Tourism
Authority to book a seat on one
of the flights on offer to
The officers there were
warm and pleasant on the
phone (what a blessed con-
trast to the rude and uncouth
people who answer the
phones at so many other
state and government agen-
cies) and Marketing Man-
ager, Mr Indranauth
Haralsingh, was accommodat-
ing in getting me on the flight
for this Wednesday.
He informed me when I
spoke to him on Monday that
the response to the promotion
was overwhelming and book-
ings for the 90 seats on the 10
flights put on for the five weeks
were going fast.
I met the requirements for
the package I live and work
here and am not an overseas-
based Guyanese home on holi-
day in disguise.
Believe me, I was happy
when I got my seat booked for
this Wednesday and was ea-
gerly looking forward to re-
newing my acquaintance

On the use of insecticide -
impregnated mosquito nets (ITNs)

Vector Control Services in conjunction with the Regional Health Services, Ministry of
Health and the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs is in the process of distributing ITNs to
residents in Regions # 1, 7, 8 and 9.

The Ministry of Health hereby advises on the use of the ITNs as follows:

(1) These ITNs are special nets which offer protection from the bites of mosquitoes by
reducing/preventing host (human) vector (mosquito) contact. This type of net also
kills/keeps away insects such as bedbugs, fleas, lice, etc.

(2) Everyone should sleep under a treated mosquito net, especially high risk groups like
children under 5 years and pregnant women, who are at greatest risk of infection with
malaria and its serious manifestations.

(3) The treated nets must be used every time you wish to rest/sleep (day/night), even if
you do not hear/see mosquitoes. Nets must be properly secured, especially tucking
under the mattress/sleeping material.

(4) Avoid frequent washing of treated nets since washing removes the insecticide from
the nets. Also keep out of sunlight.

(5) The nets are distributed at no cost to residents (free).

By Citizen Kampta Karran

(continued from last week)

HE plantation provided the
lain source of employment
nd those who laboured on
he plantation provided a
market for goods. Thus, not
nly the workers depended
n the plantation for their
ivelihood but so did the
retailers and by extension
he merchants. Importantly
Iso, British manufacturers
nd other businesses
enefited not only from the
aw materials, e.g. cane sugar
produced by the plantation,
ut they also benefited from
he market provided by the
population living there.
The wealthy-planters and
attorneys, representing
rincipals residing abroad,
nominated the society. They
ad political power because
hey sat in the Court of Policy
which allowed them to influence
vhat was to be done in the
olony. They dominated the
college of Financial
representatives which gave
em control over local public
revenue. They had the power to
ecide on taxation and on the
ages of public officials.
The managers, though less
influential than the planters and
attorneys, were also very
powerful. Their role as Justices
f the Peace and also their day-
o-day administration of the
plantations gave them direct
control over hundreds of
workers of different races and
ultures. Highlighting the

importance of the managers and
the influence they wield, one
writer of that period noted:
"The word manager means
a whole pageful of such words
as favours, conveniences, power
and autocracy. All kinds of
privileges and things desirable
are in his gift... At his word,
hundreds laugh or cry, from his
dictum there is no appeal. A
benevolent providence has
placed labour, homes,
surroundings, and life moral,
social and otherwise of
hundreds in his hands." [see B.
Moore 1987: 53].
The planters, attorneys and
managers seem to have spread
their influence far and wide, and
so the interest of the plantation
system they represented seem
to have dominated all other
concerns. Their "supreme
authority... was reflected in
their social per-eminence...
(which)... is parallelled by the
concentration of state power in
them as a class' [ibid.].
This all-pervasive nature of
the plantation and the
plantocracy no doubt led R. T.
Smith and Beckford to employ
Goffman's "total institution" to
problematise it. Its dependence
on the metropolitan centre led
scholars like Thomas [1984] and
Best [1968] to see it as an
appendage of the European and
later American capitalist
enterprise. Beckford also
recognized that cultural plurality
is one of its characteristic
features and that internal social
tensions are likely to involve
racial divisions. Padilla [1960]
presented it as "a kind of class

structured society." It is this
multi-dimensional manner in
which the plantation society is
conceptualised that makes it
useful to the present study. The
all-encompassing and eclectic
nature of the plantation theory
of the Caribbean and, by
extension, Guianese society,
allows for the various levels of
analysis the present study
would like to pursue.

Historically, the Spanish, the
Dutch, the French and the
British all had interests in
Essequibo, Demerara and
Berbice. The Europeans fought
each other in open rivalry for
these colonies which changed
hands many times. Eventually,
in 1831, Essequibo, Demerara
and Berbice, previously three
separate colonies, were united
under British rule and given the
name British Guiana (now
Guyana)*. 'Land of many
waters,' eulogising the many
rivers and creeks, is one of the
most widely accepted
translations of Guiana which is
rooted in the language of one of
the native peoples whom the
Europeans encountered on their
Synthesising existing
evidence, Rouse concluded that
human beings occupied this
space sometime before A.D. 900
which was long before the 15th-
century maritime activities of
the West. The present-day
Warraus are among the
descendants of those ancient
peoples [see Menezes 1979].

The original inhabitants of
Guiana (* In this study, the old
spelling Guiana would be
maintained when referring to
events that had occurred
between 1831 and 1905) did
not constitute a homogenous
population. Judging from their
present-day descendants,
differentiation existed at various
levels. These include languages,
customs, methods of
worshipping and so on. It
would appear that inter-group
rivalry and conflicts were not
unknown. Thus, even before the
arrival of the Europeans, there
existed in these parts,
antagonistic relations between
different peoples. While they
were more nomadic than settled,
there is evidence of sustained
habitation of specific areas by
specific groups. Therefore,
residential segregation was
practised before the coming of
the Europeans. There is also
evidence of organised
community life, a commitment
to which they were willing to
The advent of the
Europeans increased the
complexity of inter-group
relations. A new and strange
human grouping, as defined by
phenotype (in terms of eye
colour, skin colour, hair texture
and hair colour, body structure
and so on) and also by cultural
qualities (in terms of language,
dress, technology and so on)
came with the multiple
intentions of exploration,
adventurism, conquest, trade,
Christian proselytisation,
plantation exploitation and

While we are unable to
specify the nature of the belief
systems that informed
relationships among the natives,
it would be safe to assume that
the Europeans, on their arrival,
operated on the assumption that
they were superior and.the
natives were inferior. Evidence
of this superiority/inferiority
paradigm is exemplified by the
umbrella name Amerindians by
which these original inhabitants
are today known. The
Europeans ignored local
differentiation and centuries of
tradition and 'created' a new
racial category, the Amerindians.
They were dehumanised into
savages and heathens who, like
other animals of the jungle,
lacked the ethic of systematic
industry. As savages they had
to be made civilised, and as
heathens they had to be
Christianised, and to correct
their lack of industry they had
to be forced to work.
The advance. of the
European explorers,
adventurers, traders, planters,
clerics and settlers provoked
retaliation. Attempts at
Amerindian enslavement called
forth hostilities that the
Europeans could not afford thus
leading to the abandonment of
this strategy. By the mid-17th
century, the Dutch in Essequibo
and Berbice realized that "all the
settlers depended a great deal on
the goodwill of the Amerindian
population not only for trade,
but for their very survival." [R.
T. Smith 1962: 14].
There is a body of opinion

which suggests that the
Amerindians could be cast in the
role of the first defenders of
Guiana's territorial integrity, the
first grouping to enter into
international relations,
negotiating with foreign powers,
and the first group to engage in
international trade. This aspect
of the Amerindian/European
encounter is often ignored.
Probably this is because it is felt
that the Amerindians, operating
-within the ambit of their native
culture, were contributing to
their ultimate disadvantage.
Their success was short-lived.
However, a. race relations
discourse that fails to capture
this .moment of native
assertiveness will not only do an
injustice to these original
inhabitants of Guyana but to all
its citizens.
The European planter class
established tobacco, cotton,
coffee and sugar plantations.
The Amerindians proved
unsuitable for plantation work
because they were
unaccustomed to forced labour
and also because in their native
environment they could engage
the Europeans in open warfare.
The Amerindians were
succeeded by .'poor whites'.
However, they were not
numerous nor robust enough
and after their contracts
expired, they sought a livelihood
independent of manual
plantation employment.
The plantation-system
needed a cheap, an abundant
and a reliable source of

dustbins of our history. That

to ignore the impact of the

iEven in enlightened

national policy positions
emanate from within the walls

impact on the national life of
the country. For this reason,
the local and international
media will be paying close
attention to the deliberations
of the 28th Congress of the
governing People's

The history of Guyana
shows that the PPP is the
mother of all political parties
in Guyana. Nearly every
political movement since the
1950s was born out of the
PPP. The political, economic
and social fortunes of every
Guyanese have been linked to
the struggles and successes of
the. PPP. Periods of peace,
prosperity and social
development have been
associated with the PPP being
at the helm of the country.
The country's major positive

What impact or bearing would
this 28th Congress have on national

answer is: there are many.

The PPP, as a Party and a

The PPP has been the
only political Party which
takes its highest decision

about equitable development

aggressive approach of

An examination of the
theme of the Congress
"Strengthen National Unity,
Expand Democracy and Social
Progress" points to the areas
of emphasis of those expected
to be in attendance. The nexus
between democracy and
progress cannot be
overstated. The Congress
would no doubt resolve to
repel all those elements who
undermine democracy,

12 SUNDAY CHRONICLE July 24, 2005


DoeiwokA rewea 9lplayin

By Help & Shelter
SEVERAL weeks ago, criti-
cisms of the Domestic Vio-
lence Act appeared in a
Stabroek News editorial and
article. The following is an
attempt to shed some light on
the Domestic Violence Act,
including the way in which it
is at present being applied in
Guyana, its relevance and.
some recommendations for its
In 1995, Guyana signed the
Inter-American Convention on
the Prevention and Punishment
and Eradication of Violence
Against Women. Part and par-
cel of what this accession meant

was that Guyana undertook to
put in place a number of mea-
sures to combat violence against
women, including legislation
that afforded protection for
women against the scourge of
domestic violence. In 1994, the
National Campaign for Women's
Rights, a Guyanese NGO,
drafted and presented to the
Government a draft Domestic
Violence Bill. It is this Bill,
which after two years of further
consultations and amendments,
was finally taken to Parliament
.and enacted in 1996.
The Domestic Violence Act
(DVA) in Guyana was, as else-
where in the Caribbean, one of
the results of many years of

agitation and campaigning by
women's groups for an end to
domestic violence and, in par-
ticular, violence against women
and children. It made domestic
violence a public issue, gave le-
gal recognition to its
unacceptability and had the ca-
pacity, if properly implemented,
to make a significant impact on
the prevention of all the forms
of physical, mental and emo-
tional abuse that were covered
by the Act and to afford effec-
tive protection to victims.
To answer questions about
the relevance and success or fail-
ure of the DVA, it is useful to
consider what evidence we have
in relation to the agencies and

organizations who have major
responsibility for implementing
the Act. These agencies and in-
dividuals are the Guyana Police
Force, the Director of Human
Services in the Ministry of
Labour, Human Services and
Social Security, the magistracy
and designated social workers.
In 1999 2000, the Guyana
Police Force implemented a one-
year pilot project supported by
the Canada-Caribbean Gender
Equality Programme (CIDA
Gender Fund), which included
domestic violence sensitisation
training programmes for officers
and ranks. A second follow-up
project, also funded by the
CIDA Gender Fund, is now in
progress and is geared towards
improving the system of
record-keeping of domestic vio-
lence cases, the establishment of
Domestic Violence Units within
police sub-divisions and the
implementing of a system to
monitor police responses to do-
mestic violence reports. In the
second phase of the project, the
force will be working with civil
society groups, NGOs and other
stakeholders. Domestic violence
training is also now an essential
part of the curriculum of the
Police Training College.
A recent informal survey
of 20 police stations by Help
& Shelter found that 12 had
at least one police officer who
had received training in do-
mestic violence issues. In
fact, the Stabroek News ar-
ticle of March 30, 2005, head-
lined 'Domestic Violence Act
not Working' was in fact a re-
port on a workshop on gen-
der-based violence organised
by the Guyana Police Force,
in an attempt to provide a
critical forum for stakehold-
ers involved in the imple-
mentation of the DVA.
The Guyana Police Force
has also, in compliance with the
section 43 (1) and (2) of the
Act, been recording all cases of
domestic violence reported to
police stations. According to

these records, there were 2,395
reports of domestic violence last
year, up form 1,295 in 2003 -
an.increase of approximately
1000 reports.
Help & Shelter's survey of
20 police stations indicated that
seven had places set aside for
interviewing persons reporting
domestic violence and that oth-
ers had an understanding of the
need for privacy, and said they
would try to find some private
space for interviews. This is an
aspect of the police's responsi-
bility under the Act that needs
to be improved upon and may
call for improved infrastructure
The survey found that only
two stations out of the 20 had
filled out application forms for
protection orders under the
DVA, even though a police of-
ficer- is one of the parties
authorised to make applications
on behalf of victims. Applica-
tion forms were available in 16
out of the 20 stations surveyed.
Another key player in the
success of the DVA is the court
system. The Domestic Violence
Act was drafted specifically to
provide victims of domestic
violence with a relatively
simple, quick and cheap means
of obtaining protection from
further abuse through protection
orders and occupation and ten-
ancy orders if necessary. The
Act envisages an applicant sim-
ply going to the local
magistrate's court and filling in
an application form (with assis-
tance from the court staff, if nec-
essary) which will then be dealt
with by the court, without the
need for the applicant to have a
lawyer and with as much expe-
dition as the circumstances re-
quire. The definition of an ap-
plicant under the DVA may be
any of the following; (a) the vic-
tim; (b) the parent, guardian, and
approved social worker or a po-
lice officer if the victim is a child
under 16 or an adult suffering
from a mental illness; (c) a po-
lice officer or (d) a social worker

approved by the Minister by
notice published in the Gazette.
However, a visit to
Georgetown Magistrates'.
Courts 1-6 as part of Help &
Shelter's informal survey re-
vealed that since 1999 the courts
have required that all applicants
for protection order under the
DVA have the forms prepared
by a lawyer and that an affida-
vit accompany the application.
Those who cannot afford a
lawyer are referred to the
Georgetown Legal Aid Clinic.
Help & Shelter attempted to
obtain information about the
number of cases filed during the
previous year, but our represen-
tative was unable to meet with
the chief clerk. We plan to pur-
sue this matter as the informa-
tion requested should be a mat-
ter of public record and will
provide valuable insight into the
working of the DVA.
Help & Shelter's survey
also covered the availability of
DVA application forms and the
number of DVA cases in six of
the Georgetown magistrates'
courts. All had DVA application
forms available. At Providence
Magistrate's Court, 60 DVA
cases were filed in 2004; at No.
51 Village Magistrate's Court
less than 10; Cove and John
Magistrate's Court estimated
between 31-60 and Vreed-en-
Hoop, Sparendaam and Leonora
Magistrate's Court each re-
corded between 11 and 30. The
same survey found that 53 cases
of physical abuse of children
were filed in the same six courts
during 2004. We do not know
if the DVA was used in these
cases, but it certainly ought to
have been.

sons for legal help with do-
mestic violence cases, has re-
ported that in 2004 they filed
and represented clients in 62
DVA applications and that
these cases accounted for
about half of all clients seen
in relation to domestic vio-
lence during that year. For
the period January to April
2005, the Legal Aid Clinic
handled 18 DVA matters. All-
of the applications handled by
the Clinic to date have been
successful. There is, however,
a problem with the serving of
protection orders on those re-
spondents who have opted to
go into hiding. The Legal Aid
Clinic has also reported that
the majority of respondents
who have been served with
orders made under the DVA
have complied with them.
Criticism about the working
of the Act by the Legal Aid
Clinic are that applications
are not being heard "in cam-
era" as is required under the
Act, and that victim support
services are inadequate.
Section 44 of the Act con-
fers considerable responsibilities
for proper implementation on
the Director of Human Services
in the Ministry of Labour, Hu-
man Services and Social Ser-
vices. These responsibilities in-
clude developing education
programmes for the prevention
of domestic violence; publishing
reports on domestic violence in
Guyana; raising public aware-
ness of the needs of victims; de-
veloping strategies to improve
response to victims' needs by
government agencies; establish-
ing support services in the ar-
eas of information, support and
counselling for victims of do-
mestic violence including chil-
dren living in homes where there
is domestic violence occurring;
providing training for police of-
ficers and education and retrain-
ing and rehabilitation for abus-
In addition, it is the respon-
sibility of the Minister of
Labour, Human Services and
Social Services to approve so-
cial workers for the purpose of

nuil.in, .app[li.1iill.,i under il t
Aci bh. rin..' i in ihc G cle
To date, one list of approved
social workers has been gazette.
Help & Shelter is currently
awaiting a response to its most
recent correspondence to the
Director of Social Services re-
garding the implementation of
the DVA and will follow up
with both the Director and
Ministry on these matters that
are fundamental to the success
of the Act.
The above information on
the actual working of the DVA
revealed by our research gives a
good idea of what is currently
happening on the ground. We
believe it safe to say that based
on the number of DVA applica-
tions being filed, the DVA is be-
ing used and with some measure
of success.
The police force's measures
for combating domestic vio-
lence, including further and on-
going training in appropriate in-
terventions, are also crucial for
increasing the effective imple-
mentation of the Act. The
specialised domestic violence
units, monitoring and improved
record keeping already men-
tioned will certainly help the
police in responding more effec-
tively to domestic violence re-
ports, as will close collabora-
tions with and support from
Among the more than 5 000
domestic violence cases dealt
with by Help & Shelter since
November 1995, there are a
number of successes though
of course, these are never
enough. A typical success story
is as follows.
A 40-year-old mother of
three who suffered 15 years of
extreme physical, verbal and
emotional abuse at the hands of
a jealous, possessive and alco-
holic husband came to the cri-
sis centre after she finally
realized that it would probably
not be long before she would
end up dead, as the abuse was
becoming worse and even her
children had begun blaming her
for the situation. Her eldest son
had started to. copy the
behaviour of his father and be-
gun to abuse her and his sib-

Iln', \%\ taih .ll,.i';ci r .l ,nn-'

in the relationship was destroy-
ing her family rather than hold-
ing it together, and (with) the
help of the DVA, she got out of
the relationship and has dedicated
her life to assisting other women in
similar situations. She is now a
qualified counsellor in domestic
violence issues and continues to as-
pire to greater heights.
While there are considerable
shortcomings in relation to the
Domestic Violence Act, they are
very largely due not to the in-
adequacy of the Act itself, but
to the failure of those respon-
sible for its implementation.
Since the Act was passed, Help
& Shelter has, with support
mainly from the Canada-Carib-
bean Gender Equality
Programme (CIDA Gender
Fund), constantly strived to
have the Act implemented as in-
tended. We have, with varying
degrees of success, attempted to
work with the police, the mag-
istracy and the ministry, in ad-
dition to providing counselling
and other support to victims of
domestic abuse and to our on-
going public education and ad-
vocacy strategies. While the po-
lice force is moving in the right
direction, there is need for all
magistrates and magistrates' court
staff to be fully sensitised to the
issue of domestic violence and their
roles in ensuring the proper imple-
mentation of the Act (including
acknowledgement that an applicant
does not need to have a lawyer
and the hearing of all applica-
tions in camera)
And of course, while the ex-
istence and proper implementa-
tion of legislation is important,
it is not the be all and end all.
We believe, for example, that a
National Strategy on Domestic
Violence, which would address
the root causes of domestic vio-
lence, including cultural, social
and economic factors that affect
both victims and offenders, is
long overdue. In addition, gen-
der training, including child
abuse, must be part of the na-
tional skills for life schools cur-
riculum. The Family Court and
Children legislation should be
enacted without further delay

with old Kaieteur. Mr
Haralsingh was also de-
lighted when I mentioned
that I would do a write-up on
my trip because I feel that*
such an initiative should be
encouraged. So I had my pen,
notebook and camera all
ready and packed to go.
My joy, however, did not
last long.
Tour operators were soon
up in arms about the govern-
ment-sponsored Kaieteur out-
ing. Bad timing, they screamed.
This was the peak tourism sea-
son and the government was
threatening to put them out of

business by taking 18 persons
a week for the next five weeks
to see Kaieteur, they bawled.
I was as astonished as if I
had turned up at Kaieteur to
find that Guyana Water Incor-
porated had taken it over and its
mighty flow was reduced to the
drip of water coming out of a
tap in a house in Georgetown
without a black plastic standby
overhead tank. Maybe my love
affair with Kaieteur had blinded
me and the bigger picture was
clouded, but I just couldn't un-
derstand how the trekking of a
total of 90 persons over a pe-
riod of five weeks to the
falls, could dry up the flow
of tourists for the tour opera-

Baffled, I phoned Mr
Haralsingh on Thursday only to
be told that the tour operators
had been at the Tourism Au-
thority to check the list of those
booked for the Kaieteur trips.
Imagine my further astonish-
ment when he told me that ob-
jections had been raised to me
being among the 90 persons
booked because I was in an in-
come bracket that could afford
to pay the tour operators to go
see Kaieteur!
Wow the Kaieteur Police
at work! Here I was'being made
to feel that I was a thief in the
night, trying to sneak onto a
flight to Kaieteur by pretending

I was too poor to pay the prices
the tour operators charge for
the outing. Lord, here I was ex-
posed by the Kaieteur gang -
maybe Police Commissioner
Winston Felix and the Customs
Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU)
can recruit their services to help
root out the drug barons mas-
querading as genuine business
I was so flabbergasted at
what I was hearing that I
promptly told Mr Haralsingh
to cancel my booking because
I would not want to stand in
the way of a poor
hardworking soul who quali-
fies for a government-
subsidised trip to Kaieteur.
And I would not want to be
counted among those depriv-
ing those poor, poor tour op-
erators of money they so ob-
viously desperately need to be
able to make ends meet. They
are really in a bad way when
they feel threatened by a
package to ferry 90 people to
Kaieteur over five weeks.
I did not bother to ask Mr
Haralsingh what criteria are used
to select the other 89 people for
the venture. Would they have to
produce an income tax return
from the Guyana Revenue Au-
thority to prove they earn a cer-
tain sum of money a week/fort-
night/month before they are eli-
gible? How long would such a

process take and who deter- not be subject to the same kind
mines who qualifies and who of scrutiny that I was put un-
does not? der by the Kaieteur Police.
To ensure total transpar- I have opted out to make
ency, to protect the interests of way for the really deserving
the tour operators in such dire others living here Kaieteur re-
straits, and to prevent some ally is something to see but
people from sending their it sure would be interesting to
friends/relatives and others on find out who the Kaieteur Po-

By Linda Rutherford
BY DAY, she's just a regular
school ma'am, teaching 'High
School' math at Christ the
King Regional High in Middle
Village, New York.
On. weekend nights,
however, she literally lets down
her jet-black medium-length
tresses to become the foxy 'Lady
Holly', a sobriquet she picked
up while doing the rounds of
Tri-State New York's jazz
circles as lead vocalist of the five-
piece jazz ensemble, 'Holly

Though touted locally as a
mezzo soloist, she's actually a
lyric with upper mezzo tendency,
which means that unlike the
mezzo, whose vocal range is on
the heavy side, she is able "to hit
the upper upper notes" without
much effort, Kendra
Hollingsworth told the Sunday
Chronicle, Thursday evening,
last during a break in rehearsals
at Christ Church, where the
Woodside .Choir was busy
practising for their grand concert
last night in tribute to Mr Billy

Pilgrim, who has led the group
for 30-odd years.
Here at the invitation of
David and Marilyn Dewar, both
members of the Woodside Choir,
Hollingsworth, who is as much
at home with the classics and
gospel as she is with jazz, was
part of the elaborate programme
put together by the chorale in
Pilgrim's honour, and was
scheduled to do a number of
solos and a duet with David
Dewar, in addition to performing
en masse with the choir.
She and David Dewar had

met in the States quite by
accident one Sunday some two
to three years ago during one of
her many gospel performances.
This was at the St
Bartholomew's Church in
Brooklyn where his sister-in-
law, Jocelyn Hunte, who is a
close friend of Hollingsworth's
and is also here for the concert,
plays the organ and directs the

saw and heard, Hollingsworth
said he immediately approached
her after the service and said,

"You will sing with us in
Guyana with the Woodside
Surprised, but not tongue-
tied, she immediately replied:
"Absolutely! Anytime!"
Born and raised in the U.S.
of mixed Caribbean parentage,
Hollingsworth, who has been
singing since the tender age of
three, got her early training in
music at St. John's University,

took voice lessons privately with
Despina Pestisi, a Rumanian
vocalist and vocal coach who is
considered by many to be one of
the best in the business in
Just turned 38,
Hollingsworth, who celebrated
her birthday the day she arrived
here on 'Bastille Day',
Thursday July 14, says she has
now been singing professionally
for close to 12 years, and finds
it equally as rewarding as/her

labour. Slaves, mainly from
West Africa, satisfied this
need. Again, cultural and
other differences were
ignored. The peoples of
Africa were racialised into
one group called Negroes (In
this study; African(s) is
preferred to Negro(es),
blackss, Afro-Guyanese or
Another human type was
added to the population. The
texture of their hair, the colour
of their skin and their native
languages were among the
phenotypical and cultural
markers that called attention to
their difference from the rest of
the society. The imposed slave
status completed their
inferiority as defined by the
white dominated plantation
social order.
Unwilling to accept the
position into which they were
coerced, the peoples of Africa
continuously rebelled. Their
efforts to reclaim their status as
a free people and to assert their
humanity are now legends in
Guyana. One of the most
famous is the 1763 Rebellion
staged in the Dutch colony of
Berbice. Interestingly, the
Dutch, realising that their
numerical strength vis-h-vis that
of the slaves rendered them

vulnerable, employed the
Amerindians to subdue slave
rebellions and to track down
runaway slaves.
Race relations became more
complex. Those who could be
seen as the original guardians of
their ancestral homeland, the
Amerindians, were converted
into bounty. hunters, working
for the racial group that was
occupying their land and
gradually displacing them. The
foundation was established for
racial antagonisms between two
racial groups, meaning the
Amerindians and the Africans,
neither of whom initiated the
original act which caused them
to be cast in the roles of the
hunter and the hunted. Racial
antagonisms then existed among
the three racial types that
occupied the space.
It should be noted that the
.Dutch also employed the
Amerindians in their defence
against the Spanish (white/
European) encroachments.
Thus, while the Dutch may not
have seen the Amerindian/
African engagement in terms of
race, it does not diminish the
antagonism that their exercise
called forth long after they
ceased to rule.
The European planters,
merchants and their agents
fought each other for
Amerindian trade. Lands on

which the Amerindians lived,
hunted, farmed and occupied
generally, and the waterways
and fishing grounds that
contributed to the very
existence of the Amerindians all
became coveted resources for
which Europeans vigorously
competed with each other.
These resources were essential
for their plantations and also for
their mercantile activities. Sadly,
the Amerindians became a pawn
in the European struggle and
counter-struggle for supremacy.
Slavery ended with the
passing of the Abolition of
Slavery Act in 1834, but the
system dragged on for another
four years. Its abolition was
caused by several factors. These
include the constant struggles of
the Africans to free themselves,
the uneconomical nature of
plantation slavery as a viable
enterprise in the emerging
capitalist'era [Williams 1964]
and also through the
humanitarian endeavours of the
anti-slavery movement in
Britain [Ansley 1975].
The Africans must have had
a strong sense of thrift and
industry because immediately
after slavery they were able to
( collectively and individually
purchase lands that were
abandoned by the planters.
Brian Moore tells us "They
bought lands both as

communities and as individuals
and, by 1850, had spent over $1
million in acquiring 16,850 acres,
thus enabling about 80 per cent
of the ex-slave population to
relocate themselves off the
estates" [1998: 142].

The Africans realized
that the plantation system
needed their labour. As free
agents they sought to
negotiate their wages. The
decline in the price of sugar

champions among the participants."
GLTA president Wilfred 'Gus' Lee thanked the sponsors and
the two coaches, while noting how successful the camp was.
"We can't go forward without sponsors."
He disclosed that the association would be staging a tourna-
ment, next month, in which some of the players might take part.
"The children have been exposed to a game that would last them
for their life time."
Lee said the two coaches would be having sessions at the Na-
tional Park, from the week school reopens, on Tuesday and Thurs-
day afternoons.
Bunbury said it was a "wonderful" camp and thanked Le
Meridien Pegasus for "loaning" the courts.
She also thanked coaches who assisted, like Phillip Squires and
William Skeete, and National player Alice Ali.
"Alice came to our rescue when we needed it."
The camp was conducted in two sessions morning for 6-14
year-olds and afternoon for 15-18 year-olds.
A competition was staged to wrap up the camp, with players
being placed into three groups. For the morning-session participants,
Group 3 champion was Foxley Cutting, Group 2 Angelina Chandra
and Group 1 Joel Haynes. In afternoon session, Group 1 cham-
pion was JamA La Rose and Group 2 Candacy Chase.
Also, in the morning, there was the Group A champion in
Stephen Alleyne and Group B was Abigail Welch, while the after-
noon GroupA champion was Andy Goveia and Group B was Sonnel
Several Most Improved Players were identified Abigail Welch
and Keisha Carr from the morning session and Levia Eversley and
Dofina Barker from the afternoon.
The Most Enthusiastic Junior player was Jaya Boodram
and that of the senior Andy Goveia.

Thorpe's long and winding road

By Oliver Brett
IN the list of all-time Test
run-scorers for England, Gra-
ham Thorpe's name appears
immediately below that of
Ken Barrington.
Two sons of Surrey from
different eras, their adhesive
qualities served the national
team well.
But. whereas Barrington's
international career came to an
end after 82 appearances,
Thorpe became only the eighth
England player to play in 100
Tests when he faced Bangladesh
at Chester-le-Street in June.
-It was a bumpy ride at
times, but Thorpe, now 35 and
retired, will probably be re-
garded as the best English bats-
man of his generation.
He was frequently the man
closing out victories whether
in Colombo, Karachi or
Whether under Nasser
Hussain or Michael
Vaughan's captaincy, he was
so often the man who earned
the plaudits.
The debate over his place
for the Ashes series was a vig-

orous one for selectors and
supporters alike, with Kevin
Pietersen getting the nod for
Some might argue that it was
cruel to deny Thorpe a final
chance to nail the Aussies after
witnessing so many failed at-
He made his debut in the
Ashes summer of 1993, when
England's selectors were at their
most unpredictable.
But while players like
Mark Lathwell and Martin
McCague were found want-
ing at the highest level,
Thorpe showed he had ithe
right pedigree as he compiled
a fine century at Trent
Former England captain and
Surrey team-mate Alec Stewart
said: "If England were 20 for
three, he was always a great
person to walk out to the crease
and his hundred on his debut
was very special.
"His century in Paki-
stan in 2000, when he
barely scored a boundary,
was a typical Graham
Thorpe innings."
In time, another Surrey col-

MARK Butcher and Graham
to victory in Trinidad.

league, Mark Butcher, would
join him in the England side.
A few years his junior,
Butcher told BBC Sport that it
took him a while to learn the
Thorpe way of doing things.
"I didn't speak to him as
much back in the early days as
I did later on in my career," he
"But he was certainly some-
one I paid attention to.

"I would watch him bat
against certain types of
bowlers, the way he prac-
tised and so on.
"He's got a terrific way of
being able to adapt to the sur-
roundings and the conditions
he's playing in.
"He's just as happy play-
ing on a quick bouncy wicket in
Petth as in dustbowls in Paki-

"That's a great tribute to
the way he goes about prepar-
ing for all the different chal-
lenges Test cricket throws up."
After 10 consecutive winter
tours, firstly for England A then
England, Thorpe declined the
1999-2000 tour of South Africa.

Then in late 2001, he flew
home halfway through the tour
to India.
He swiftly returned to En-
gland duty a few months later,
only for his marriage to break up
the following summer, and he
was in no fit state for the sub-
sequent Ashes tour.
The last chapter of his
England career, since
August 2003, was studded
with success, however, and

Butcher refutes any
suggestion that Thorpe was
a difficult tourist.
"He was good fun to have
around on tours. He had a lot
of personal issues I guess at cer-
tain parts of his career but he
didn't hate touring, certainly
"He wouldn't have been
one of the most gregarious
members of the team back
through the 90s, but in recent
years he really enjoyed it and
was a major part of the dress-
"He has always been will-
ing to contribute wh'tther
talking about actual cricket
or having fun on trips.
"People's personal circum-
stances affect the way they are
at work, I guess. It's no differ-
ent for cricket players than it is
for anyone else.
"It's been a shame that he's
missed as many games as he
"Certainly, he would have
been the first man down on the
teamsheet for many years now."
And that last statement is
perhaps the best accolade
anyone can give Thorpe.

GTTA, young players~

By Neil Kumar
ON behalf of the National
Sports Commission I would
like to' categorically de-
nounce the blatant lies that
were published in sections of
the press by Mr. Peter
Ramsaroop and pledge my
unflinching support to the
Guyana Table Tennis Asso-
ciation and particularly the
young table tennis players.
It was, reported that, ahd I
quote, "Speaking exclusively to
Chronicle, 'the Roop' as he is
familiarly known, disclosed that
since his election to head the
sport of table tennis not a single
word of acknowledgement from
the National Sports Commis-
sion or the Ministry of Sport
has been received by our Asso-
The National Sports Com-
mission held several meetings
with the Guyana Table Tennis
Association particularly during
the last few years. Before the
arrival "of the two Chinese
coaches the NSC organised sev-
eral meetings with the Table
Tennis Association and the
Wushu Association.
As people with a vision
and with careful planning a de-
tailed programme was planned
and is presently being imple-
It is indeed a blatant lie for
him to say that the NSC and the
Ministry did not recognize the
We had several meetings
and on June 21 2005, I invited
the General Secretary of the

GTTA, Mr. Godfrey Munroe,
and Head Coach Mr. Linden
Johnson of the Table Tennis As-
sociation to a meeting at the
boardroom of the Ministry of
Foreign Trade and Investment
At that meeting which was
chaired by Mr. John Isaacs, Per-

manent Secretary MOFTIC;
Mr. Keith Booker, Permanent
Secretary of Ministry of Cul-
ture, Youth and Sport; Mr. Yao
Wenliang, Economic and Com-
mercial Counsellor of the Chi-
nese Embassy; along with Mr.
Munroe and myself made re-
marks along with Mr. Zhou
Ping, Table Tennis Coach; Mr.
Mu Ningh, Martial Arts Coach;
and Mr. Shang Yi Interpreter.
The GTTA and NSC
agreed to a full programme
of activities which will cer-
tainly help in the further de-
velopment of table tennis in
this country.

Our vision clearly envisages
that we will be working with
teachers, coaches and clubs in
different areas in the country.
When Ramsaroop talked
about a comprehensive National
Sports Strategy that ties educa-
tion and economic development,
I would like to further remind
him that several National Asso-
ciations held joint meetings with
the Ministry of Educatioi;and
the National Sports Comnis-
sion and w~ planned to.iave
National Joint Activities. ..:
I would like to vehemently\
condemn hiW remarks since he
never thought it fit to speak to
me as Director of Sport or ne\ er
had any discussion with the
Ramsaroop clearly seems to
have an inclination to get into
things via the backdoor. Today
when we are all working fofbet-
ter governance and further de-
velopment in our country it is
imperative that Mr. Ramsaroop
understand that his efforts to
put his photograph and make
cheap, unnecessary negative re-
marks will not help our sports-
We need to enter the King-
dom of Sport through the open
doors and ground with our
brothers in the sport fields and
sports clubs.
The National Sports
Commission's entire staff is
proud of what is being doing
for the development of sport
and Mr. Ramsaroop's fatigue
and tiredness will only lead
to his return from where he

in an accident while riding a

ous feature at the Park, started
the race brightly, even breaking
away after 20 laps with a six-
man pack he, Charles,
Osbourne, Sookhai, Simone and
Baksh but was dropped and
the fight to the finish ensued
between Charles and Osbourne.
There was no surprise, how-
ever, in the 12-14 Years three-lapper
and Juveniles ten-lapper as Geron
Williams continued to dominate
both categories.
He won the first in
7:30.26 minutes, with Chris-
topher Holder second and

clocked 14:07 minutes, with

Patrick Santos second and
Courtney Thomas third.
Osafa Matterson took the
Upright first and prime prizes,
finishing the five laps in 13:41
minutes, followed b, Bochel
Samaroo and Darell Peter.
In the BMX races, Vishal
Joseph won the 6-9 Years event
over two laps, with Jonathan De
Abreu second and Tariq Baksh
third, while Johnatan Fagundes
was first in the 9-12 Years
event, Leoni Cipriani second
and Romario Bhagwandin third.
Fagundes was back on track
to win the 12-14 Years race, fol-
lowed by Shaka Rowe and
Romel Hernandez, while Sheri
Ann De Abreu won the 6-12
Years Girls race.
Travis Glasgow was the
winner of the Open Boys three-
lapper, with Tavel Fowler sec-
ond and Ryan Bharrat third.
The race, organised by
National coach Hassan
Mohamed, was staged under
the 'Icy Blue Gel' banner and
Twins' Production Manager
Rafeek Ferouz presented the
prizes and handed out
samples of the rub.

: 141callsfor continuous tra-piing

By Isaiah ChappeHe

THE second annual tennis
camp at the Pegasus courts
ended yesterday, with the
sponsor calling for continuity
in training.
Guyana Lawn Tennis Asso-
ciation (GLTA) hosted the two-
week camp sponsored by

Panday & Panday (P&P) Insur-
ance Brokers
The camp conducted by
Coaches Debbie Bunbury and
. Shelly Daly had a first day in-
take of 50 children between six
Sand 18 years, which number
swelled to 92 by the closing.
Sponsor Bish Panday said
he was delighted to have spon-

scored the camp which he noted
was well organized and well run.
"A sponsor can ask for no
more for what happened in the
last two weeks."
He thanked the parents for
bringing out their children and
called for a programme so the
children can continue what they
began in the camp.

"We have to get them into
clubs. We have a rich history of
tennis. We have the talent in go-
ing forward."
Panday challenged officials
to identify talent and work with
those players.
"I'm sure we have some

I HOPE you have enjoyed the last three
weeks of practical, quick and simple
ideas to be your best and hopefully they
have helped you to reach for your
dreams, however busy you are.

It's not always our activity
that makes us tired. Sometimes
we exhaust ourselves simply by
letting people or circumstances
drain away our energy.
Can you think of anything
that might be demanding of you
or distracting you or getting on
your nerves at the moment? Are
there any so-called energy vam-
pires in your life? If there are
you will know who and what
they are.
Do you have to 'put up'
with anything or anybody that
annoys you and stops you mov-
ing forward in the important ar-
eas of your life?,Such energy

drainers could include: any do-
mestic appliances that aren't
working properly, unfinished
work projects, an over-demand-
ing acquaintance, broken toilet
seats, dirty clothes continually
dumped on the floor, a negative
family member, an unreliable co-
worker, a disorganised desk
(you name them).
Make a list of your annoy-
ances (petty and not so petty).
Now take your top three ir-
ritations, choose one and decide
to do something about it.
Go back to.your list;
prioritise the items (most an-
noying at the top) and start to
deal with them on a regular ba-

sis. When new possible distrac-
tions develop, just add them to
your list. You will feel so much
better because you will know
that they are under control and
that they will be dealt with
Lesson to learn: Keep
your energy strong and fo-
cused by dealing with energy

Forgiveness is a powerful
way of increasing our own feel-
ings of self-worth and confi-
dence. When I first suggested to
people that they might forgive
someone who angers them they
usually say something like,
'Why should I, after what they
did to me?"


Forgiveness does not mean
that we think that it's OK for
anybody to do anything to us.
Forgiveness is all about letting
go. If I cannot forgive you, then
my, angry thoughts will connect
me to you forever. You may live
ten thousand miles away, but if
all I have to do is think of you
for my emotions to get stirred
up then I might as well be liv-
ing with you. We might even
carry.anger for a person % ho is
dead. This is not at all unusual.
.Is. there anyone who `ou
find difficult to forge' If so.
askcyourselfwhai you gain from
"not forgiing this person. You
gain a permanent relationship

with the object.of your hatred;
you are bound together in anger.
Is that what you really want?
Forgiving does not mean
overlooking; it means the oppo-
site. Before you can let go of the
ties that bind you to another in
hatred, you need to know ex-
actly what hurt you and why
and then to

When you can truly forgive

From Burrowes School of Art to the Smithsonian Institution



Patsy Rasmussen

By Sandra Seeraj


OR as long as
she could
remember, Patsy

Ann has always
followed her dream,
along whatever exciting
path or unexplored
detour it would take
Armed with unshakable
confidence in her ability as an
artist, with healthy doses of
perseverance, and a good mea-
sure of typical Guyanese charm,
this young woman has come a
long way from Burrowes
Schools of Art in Guyana, to
being one of several Museum
Registration Specialists within
the vast, prestigious
Smithsonian Institution in the
United States.
She recalls being over-
whelmed by a visit to the
Smithsonian in 1990. It was as
if a whole new world had opened
up, offering a tantalising vista of
Art at its finest. Everything was
so beautiful and so wonderfully
exhibited! She knew, there and
then, that this was where she
wanted to be. She just had to
work within those hallowed
She set out to do just that
and later that year her quest
was rewarded when she found
a job as a Sales Clerk at the Na-
tional Museum of African Art.
It was a humble beginning, but
one that would provide entr6e
to doors which may have been
closed to others of lesser deter-
Several strategic career
moves later, including two years
of post graduate studies at
George Washington University
and graduation in 2002 with a
Master of Fine Arts in Design
degree, Patsy Ann had earned
her stripes as Museum Regis-
trar Specialist within the
Smithsonian, a coveted position
with many intrinsic rewards.
"I have always wanted to be
involved in Education. Not nec-
essarily in teaching, but in some
related aspect," she said.
Her job at the Smithsonian
provides the unique nexus
which allows her to combine her
love of Art and Craft with Edu-
"I love my job. There is al-
ways so much to see and learn.
There is always something to be
shared. Everyone is very sup-
Patsy Ann Willis
Rasmussen was born in
Georgetown, Guyana, and at-

tended North Georgetown Sec-
ondary School. There, her artis-
tic ability found fertile ground
and she learnt that her penchant
for drawing and colouring was
not only a means of self-expres-
sion, but that there was a com-
mercial application for her gift.
She began to learn the for-
mal aspects of Art and Craft,
including the rudiments of sew-
ing and clothing design. Upon
graduation from secondary
school, Patsy Ann enrolled in
the Burrowes School of Art,
where, for four years, she honed
her skills, furthered her knowl-
edge and deepened her love for
Textile Design. She earned an
Undergraduate Degree in Textile
Design and later taught at
Burrowes for a year before leav-
ing in 1981 for Jamaica.
She soon found a ready
market for her custom-designed
garments in Jamaica's tourist
sector. She also found employ-
ment illustrating children's
books and held a few solo exhi-
bitions of her work on the is-
land before leaving for Canada
to continue to broaden her ho-
She later returned to Ja-
maica and a job as Art and De-
sign teacher in a Technical High
School. For the next four years
she taught school, continued her
work in textile design, held joint
exhibitions, and participated in
several Art shows and exhibi-
tions. She even exhibited her
custom designs in Jamaica's
popular Devon House, a well-
known outlet for this type of
design work.
In 1987, Patsy Anna again
felt the urge to keep moving on-
ward, upward. She left Jamaica
for another teaching position at
a Catholic High School in the
For the next three years,
she continued to teach, all the
while marketing her custom-de-
signed clothing to tourists. She
also began exploring the creation
of optical illusions using pen and
ink drawings. These creations
could be framed and hung as
wall decorations.
In 1990, she met American-
born Mark Rasmussen. The two
met in Jamaica while Mark had
been working there.
"He came to purchase fab-
ric. I did not have the colour he
wanted, and, as the saying goes,
'One thing led to another...'"
The two were married in 1990
and Patsy Ann came to the
United States with her new hus-
band later that year.
While participating in an
exhibition of textiles called
'Celebration of Textiles' held
at the Textile Museum in
Washington DC in 1993,
Patsy Ann won critical ac-
claim for her workshop dem-
onstrating tie-dye techniques
on silk fabric. In 1999, while
attending George Washing-
ton University, she also won
several awards for her work
including two from the es-
teemed American Society ;of

PATSY Ann (right) chats with a guest at a recent Art Exhibition

Interior Designers (ASID).
The typical workday of a
Museum Registration Specialist
at the Smithsonian Institute
Travelling Exhibition Service
(SITES) is hectic, stimulating,
and full of challenge and respon-
sibility. Specialists are respon-
sible for all of the SITES' many
travelling exhibitions on loan to
various institutions in the
United States and sometimes
around the world. Decisions
must be made quickly and ap-
Exhibits to be loaned must
be properly insured, catalogued,
accessed, checked, listed, pack-

aged, crated, shipped, displayed
and tracked; contracts need to
be negotiated, agreed upon,
drawn up and signed; and meet-
ings must be scheduled with
prominent donors. Occasionally,
an exhibit may need to be
couriered to a museum or some-
times Museum Registration
Specialists are required to ac-
company the exhibits in the
United States or abroad to en-
sure that the artifacts are well
displayed and that the display
environment is maintained at the
correct temperature, humidity
and lighting, and that all the re-
quired conditions are in place.

Museum Registrar Special-
ists may also visit proposed ex-
hibition venues and advise ex-
hibitors, in written reports, as
to the suitability of the venues
chosen. The Registrar Special-
ists give advice on the required
frames, platforms, mannequins
and models needed for an exhi-
bition of artifacts which the
Smithsonian may travel.
Some of the exhibits cur-
rently being featured at the In-
stitution, for which Patsy Ann
is responsible are: 'Sports:
Breaking Records, Breaking Bar-
riers' and 'Our Journeys, Our
stories Latino Life in the

United States'. Both of these
exhibitions are ongoing and
Patsy Ann is now engaged in ar-
rangements to ship them "on
the road" to various cities in the
She is also involved in the
preparations to launch a travel-
ling version of an exhibition on
the life and music of the late
Latin Singer Celia Cruz, which
is currently on exhibition at the
National Museum of American
"I am absolutely enjoying
every aspect of this job. I would
also like to continue to create
and market my designs and see
more of my designs printed onto
fabric," she said, adding that the
Smithsonian is very supportive
of her efforts.
After a long day, Patsy Ann
unwinds with her husband
Mark and their two sons, Jus-
tin, aged 14 and Gavin, three, in
their North West Washington
DC home. As she looks forward
to another new day, full of
promise and possibility, she
dreams of her designs making it
big in the existing markets in
New York, North Carolina and
in Europe, where they may even
find a niche in haute couture.
Apart from clothing, her designs
can also be applied to linen,
wallpaper, window dressings,
upholstery, wrapping paper and
a host of other interior decorat-
ing accessories.
Patsy Ann Rasmussen has
plenty of time to dream even
bigger dreams, and with the
support of her family, friends and
workmates, turn them all into
a wonderful reality.

Again and again Li's son urged

Your marriage was also a
self-fulfilling prophecy. You

married a man who could
provide for you, but he is a
man you do not love. Now the
marriage may end, and you
may need to go to work. Like
the last Sui emperor, you
have brought ruin upon your-

with a person who makes you

have children with them, you
will be bound to them for the
rest of your life.



I'm 27 and my husband is 41.
We've been together since I
was 18 and he was 32. I got
pregnant when I was 21, then
we got married. I knew I never
wanted to be with him for-
ever. When I was walking
down the aisle, I said to my-
self, "I can always get a di-

vorce." Little did I know it
wouldn't be that easy.
Now we have two wonder-
ful kids. He makes good money,
and I get to stay home. We have
a nice lifestyle. The problem is
he makes me sick. I do not love
him and do not want to be with
him anymore.

We have nothing in com-
mon, and he is not a very intel-
ligent person. He is illiterate. He
is not kind to others. He's good
with the kids, but does and says
things in front of them that
should not be said or done. I

My fiance and I plan to marry in October. He enjoys
dancing at clubs, and I don't. I have a difficult time dancing
with him as he improvises a lot, and I feel silly trying to
follow him. I don't like the idea of him going out by
himself, and it is really hard for me to watch him dancing
with other women.
We are taking dance lessons to hopefully find a common
rhythm. But he wants to go to a dance Friday, and the dance is
themed "schoolgirls and skater boys." I object. He's 40, I'm
30, and I don't feel comfortable dressed as a schoolgirl dancing
with a much younger crowd.


Gabriclla, should the Lord of the Dance marry a woman
who. though she doesn't have two left feet, does not share his
passion for stepping to the music? Can you imagine spending
the rest of your life trying to prevent him from dancing?
"You don't need to be somebody's wet blanket. You need
someone who fulfills and enhances your own life. If you can't
find a common rhythm, sit out the Wedding March.

Perfect smile quiz
*~~~~ % .... i^^H^^'i*"BB

WANT a perfect smile? Try this quiz and see if
you know enough about oral care get what your
desire. Many persons assume that basic facts on
dental health are nothing but common sense.
Let's see if this is true.

(1). The firmer the
bristles on your tooth-
brush are, the cleaner
your teeth will be.
a. True
b. False
The best bristles for brushing
are soft ones. In fact, stiff
bristles can do more harm than
good, since they're more likely
to injure gums and wear away
your enamel (your teeth's pro-
tective coating). Dental plaque
is just as soft as jelly, so why
want to use a stiff-bristled brush
to remove it?

(2). The most important
time to brush is in the
a. True
b. False
Atnight, when we don't swal-
low as often, our saliva is less
able to wash away plaque that
might be doing its dastardly
work on or between our teeth.
That's why you don't want to
go to sleep with any plaque
buildup sitting on your teeth.

So, the best time to brush is just
before going to bed at night.

(3). You should change
your toothbrush at least
once a month.
a. True
b. False
You should invest in a new
toothbrush whenever the
bristles start to curve outwards.
Scraggly bristles can't get hard-
to-reach places, so they leave
behind cavity-causing food and
germs. Therefore, the time to
change your toothbrush de-
pends on the condition of the
bristles and not the period of

(4). The proper motion
to use when brushing
your teeth is:
a. up and down
b. back and forth
c. a circular motion
d. all of the above
Brushing in a circular motion is
the best way to clean teeth and
the least damaging. Other meth-

The Dentist Advises
- -- ~I~qiys)(;i;ll(ui;agg

ods can cause wear and tear on
gums, possibly causing them to
bleed and recede. Brushing in a
circular motion sweeps plaque
in hard-to-reach places away
from the teeth, while brushing
back and forth, or up and down,
doesn't remove hidden plaque

(5). A dirty tongue can
cause bad breath.
a. True
b. False
A major cause of bad breath is
bacteria on your tongue. The
best tool for removing these
stale smells is a tongue scraper,
but brushing your tongue with
a toothbrush and toothpaste
will do the trick.

(6). You should always
floss before you brush.
a. True
b. False
Believe it or not, it doesn't mat-
ter when you floss as long as
you do it once a day. It takes
plaque 24 hours to form on
your teeth. Flossing reaches the
areas between your teeth that
your toothbrush misses.

(7) All the over-the-
counter whitening
toothpastes readily
a. True
b. False
Whitening toothpastes are not
bleaches, so they won't turn
your teeth white. But they do
contain some ingredients that
can lighten teeth a little by at-
tacking surface stains. In any
case, anything worthwhile can
only happen if the toothpaste
remains on the enamel long

B. Punctuating the Exclamatory Sentence
What an exciting game that was!

A sentence that shows strong feeling is called an ex-
clamatory sentence. An exclamation mark is placed
at the end of an exclamatory sentence. After the
punctuation, read each sentence orally, with expres-
sion, to emphasize the idea of strong feeling.

Punctuate this sentence:

The Story

Read the title of the story below and then tell where
the second paragraph begins. This story has two
paragraphs only. The story can be used for spell-
ing also. In that case, let someone dictate the title
and passage to you a phrase or sentence at a time.
Take your time now!

Wise Use of Time

To be idle is not fun. Those who claim that limingg'
is wonderful must be joking. Having nothing to do
will become tiresome after a short time. Most of us
will agree that being busy makes a person feel
good. We should spend some of our time doing
things we enjoy. Always doing something you don't
enjoy is considered bad. Maybe the important thing
is to try to enjoy doing the jobs you must do.

Hello boys and girls,
We are glad to have you with us today. There
are some benefits if you check your progress

An isolated student may think that he knows
something which in reality he/she is still con-
fused about, so check up, please. Be careful.

Tropical Jazz:



THE music market
creates musical
trends to gain the
public's attention. Such
trends come and go
according to decisions
on public exposure.
Subsequently, 'Bossa
Nova' music, and the
tropical fashion style

Byrd's guitar recreating Brazil-
ian rhythms as jazz which gen-
tly influences us to dance with
a subtle movement of shoulders,
hips and feet. This was the first
lesson Getz provided for wind
instrumentalists of South
American Jazz. His.second les-
son was the introduction of the
untrained Brazilian vocalist
with a gentle voice, Astrud
Gilberto, whom he persuaded to

Part 2

tween instrumental and vocal
passages; the music quickly
and suddenly stops on an
uptempo note, the increases
volume and speed, then re-
peats a past rhythm, adding
more instruments to the mix.
(2) New instruments such as
the electric piano, har-
monica, viola, bass, flute, and
various rare Brazilian per-
cussionists Airto Moreira and
Dom Um Romao, who would
go on to add their tropical
flavors to the greatest pro-
gressive jazz groups.
The album, however, owed
its charm and ingenuity to the
skillful arrangements and'con-
ducting of the bright young Bra-
zilian pianist, Deodato. The
South Americans with a group
of superb American and Euro-
pean musicians, cast a spell
from South America's wild ge-
ography and sensual moods, and
Turrentine's sax picked up the
magic, spewing out abstract
lines that scat, spin, sway,
bounce and jab back and forth,
leaping up scales in hot pursuit
of the brisk, clear and melodi-
ous voice of Gilberto, who, it is

said, "breezed through the
songs, leaving behind a;scerit of
the exotic".
Nothing before compared
with, South American tunes like
'Brazilian tapestry' or
'Zazueira' or the fantastic
'Ponteio', which opens with the
sweeilv .celestial sound .of an.
echoing harmonica played by
Belgian jazz artist; Toots

voice rises, followed by
Turrentine's flourishing super-
sonic sax.
When Gilberto sings the
beautifully Bohemian tune,
'Travelling light', co-written by
Deodato, and accompanied by
Shis beautiful electric piano, her
words: "I'm going to be free,
going to be me... no worries in
sight, just straight ahead, to a
Snew start", sent not just a per-
sonal message,. but the idealis-
tic cultural and social aspira-
tions of the South American
continent since its conception as
a 'New World'.
Turrentine's rhythmic and
danceable instrumental 'Vera
Cruz' is perhaps one of South
America's greatest jazz tunes,
written by Afro Brazilian singer-
composer, Milton Nascimento

and a few other artistes. In this
tune, Turrentine's sax brilliantly
dances masquerade, exactly like
Guyanese street bands at
Christmas, demonstrating the
lesson that South American pro-
gressive jazz takes various fold
and grassroots music into
higher, more complex forms, of
instrumentation Turrentine,
like other musicians on this pre-
cious album 'Gilberto with
'Turrentine', would not repeat
such a performance without

But the niusic caught a.
"wave that sane sear of 19Yl.
which saw the birth ot one of
the most progressive jazz
groups 'Weather Report', who
incorporated South American
influences. 1972 saw Brazilian
percussionist Airto, and vocal-
ist Flora Purim, joining. Chick
Corea, Stanley Clarke, Joe
Farrell and others to create an-
other tropically inspired jazz
group, 'Return to Forever',
whose album contained beauti-
ful tunes like 'Spain', 'You're
Everything', and 'Light as a
feather', all featuring Brazilian
vocalist Flora Purim casting a
South American magic spell

with herVocals in Engli.sh.
Between such times to now,
numerous groups of progressive

It is a 'fact that South
America is the only continent
outside of Europe and North
America which created a unique
progression in the arts of paint-
ing, kinetic sculpture, music and
literature, generally known as
Modernism, or Modern Art,
since the early 20th century.
The ability of South American
folk rhythms to capture and as-
similate other forms of musical
instrumentation into its evolv-
ing capabilities was proven by
Stan Getz's acceptance of Bra-
zilian rhythms which led to his
totally American-made hit al-
bum 'Jazz-Samba'.
In 1962, Getz recorded the
Brazilian-composed tune 'Ba-
hia' on that album, and this is
one of the best examples of
Getz's tenor sax and Charlie

sing two Brazilian songs in En-
glish, (she knew English quite
well) 'Corcovado', or Quiet
Nights, and 'The Girl from
Ipanema', two songs which
swept her and the bossa nova
beat to world fame.
The shy Gilberto, with her
quiet, simple, but clear melodi-
ous voice, would record many
beautiful South American Jazz
vocal albums in Portuguese and
English, but in 1971, her col-
laboration with tenor saxophon-
ist Stanley Turrentine for the al-
bum 'Gilberto with Turrentine',
created a profound progression
in South American Jazz that

American Jazz with fresh
spices. If Getz helped South
American Jazz to progress, then
Turrentine, like the odd man out
in jazz categories, showed the
way to an incredible, quick,
endlessly lyrical Baroque style
of playing that was more imagi-
native and inventive than Getz
had achieved.
This unique, magical al-
bum 'Giiberto with

more lessons for tropical
South American Jazz. (1)

Sky's the limit for Temika Marshall as career in music takes off

by Shauna Jemmott

TEMIKA Marshall
never expected
to venture into
the music arena. That is,
not until she made an
impression on the
judges at the St. Joseph
High School's annual
beauty pageant last
And though she did not win
the contest she was judged
first runner-up she walked
away with the 'Best Talent'
award after rendering a song.
-It was then that Headmis-
tress Ingrid Fung realized
Temika's hidden talent and
started hiring her to sing at wed-
dings and parties.
The teenager enjoyed singing
and seeing signs of pleasure on
faces of her audiences, but she
never really expected to advance
to national recognition.
In early 2005, a friend told
her that the Guyana Telephone
and Telegraph Company
(GT&T) is seeking an impres-
sive jingle for its Cellink com-
mercial, and advised her to enter
that competition.
Temika said she ignored the
advice and just went on doing
her regular thing just attending
school. Although she herself saw
the advertisement for the jingle

competition, she did not have
much confidence in her talent.
But teacher and friend,
Ossie Nedd, approached her and
encouraged her to enter the com-
petition too. Temika said Nedd
even went as far as writing the
words of the song and having her
learn and rehearse it.
Nedd told the Sunday
Chronicle it was not long before
Temika caught the words and
rhythms of the jingle, and he im-
mediately felt that she was on
her way to stardom.
But Temika was still pessi-
mistic..She just entered to ap-
pease her advisers and to gain
the experience from participat-
ing. The teenager submitted just
one of the 100 entries, with a
strong belief that hers would
have been judged 11th space or
just below that.
In just one week, she re-
ceived a telephone call from a
GT&T staff member acknowledg-
ing her entry, and by the next
week, she was called to do a re-
"They called me in to do re-
cording about a week after...
then I got a call informing me that
*I was in the top ten," she re-
Temika said she was
shocked to have even been in
that category, but thought then
that she had a slight chance of
copping the first prize and be-
coming $100,000 richer.
A reception was held and she

was among the other nine con-
testants who were anxiously
awaiting the announcement of
the winning jingle.
Temika said when she heard
her name, she did "something
stupid", but she still doesn't re-
call exactly it was.
"I know I embarrassed my-

self... I just went up there and
nothing came to mind... I could
remember clearly just saying "I
don't know what else to say, but
thanks", the teenager giggled.
It was a really wonderful ex-
perience, and one that made the
singer realise that her talent can
actually make her richer.
SHer melodious voice rings
out the perfect combination of
words to describe the proposed
service offered by the GSM cel-
lular division of the telephone
company. Along with the
$100,000 prize, she.was re-
warded a GSM phone with free
minutes, and an attractive
Cellink package.
At that time, the fifth form
student was preparing to sit the
Caribbean Examinations Council
(CXC) exam. She maintained her
focus, though other opportuni-
ties were presented, and was

The Bagotstown, East Bank
Demerara resident said she
realises that CXC is not the end,
and has plans of attending the
University of Guyana in Sep-
tember to read for a Degree in
Communication in order to po-
sition herself to enter the field of
journalism. But she is unsure
which aspect of journalism she
would eventually pursue.
Temika said in order to finally
settle in a particular area, she
plans on first testing the waters
in print, radio and television.
Just as excited about journal-
ism as she is about being inde-
pendent and wealthy, Temika
said if an impressive and profit-
able music deal presents itself,
she will nor procrastinate.
"Singing has just been some-
thing I enjoyed... not something
I want to make my profession...

but if an attractive deal presents
itself, I'll definitely take it," she
She is currently working on'
a demo album to send to the
United States in order to attract
music producers and land an in-
ternational deal.
If this comes through, she
will work towards nothing but
stardom. Her dream is to be in
the line-up with favourite stars
Beyonce Knowles, Alicia Keys,
Mia, Usher and Jaheim, singing
Rhythm and Blues, and Hip
Hop. She also loves music from
She has recorded one origi-
nal group song with local stars
for a UNICEF peace project,
and is expected to be.a part of
the performances at a show to
be staged late August at the
Sophia Exhibition Complex.
Along with friend Lester

Denny, Temika also did a jingle
for the GT&T Yellow Pages.
"Winning the GT&T jingle
competition, I got an opportu-
nity to do other things while I
was still in school... so I want
to finish with school and make
some dough (money)," she said.
She has also done recording
with Kross Kolor, and Kingdom
and Friends Recording.
She has only one original
solo called, 'It's True', written
to be included on her demo al-
bum, but is in the process of get-
ting more done.
Known to many just as
"the Cellink commercial
girl", Temika Marshall is
more than just a pretty
poster-girl. The jingle she
made is now rated as the best
on the local airwaves, and at
just 16 years old, it seems like
the sky is her limit.

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. Today we'll
explain a little more on The Female and Male Re-
productive System.

How do mammals reproduce?

Mammals, the group which includes Man, resembles
toads in that sperms are produced by the testes of the
male, and eggs by the ovaries of the female, but there
are many differences.


A Male Sperm

The testes of a man are not inside the abdomen, as in
the toad, but hang outside the body in a sac called the
scrotum. They begin to produce sperms when a boy
reaches the age of puberty, which is about fourteen years
of age while other boys might begin puberty at a later
age. Thereafter the sperms are being made all the time,
and are stored in the coiled tube next to the testes, called
the epididymis. Some of these sperms may pass along
two sperms tubes until they reach the urethra (the tube
which carries urine from the bladder). Some will be
washed away in the urine, and some may be discharged
at night during sleep. Most of them normally stay in the
epididymis, where they eventually die and are re-ab-

The Male Reproductive System
After marriage, when a couple wishes to have children,
the husband may introduce his penis into the vagina of
his wife. The epididymis then quickly squeezes the
sperms along the sperm tubes. These tubes and the
urethra also help to push the sperms out from the penis
into the vagina. At the same time, a fluid is squeezed
out in which the sperms can swim actively. The mix-
ture of sperms and fluid is called semen. The sperms
swim from the vagina into the womb, and up the egg
tubes towards the ovaries.

The Female Reproductive system

The ovaries of a woman are right inside the abdomen.
Like the testes, they began to produce egg cells at the
time of puberty. But eggs, unlike sperms, are not being
shed all the time. In a woman, one egg is released ev-
ery month, from the time of puberty until about the age
of forty-five except during pregnancy. In most animals,
several eggs may be released and fertilized at the same

The egg travels down a tube from the ovary towards the
womb. If it is not fertilized on the way, it moves along
into the womb and disintegrates. After ten days, the lining
of the tube breaks away and is discharge down into the
vagina, along (together) with some blood. This process
is called ministration (because it occurs once every
month), and it also helps to clean out the womb, so that
it can prepare for a fertilized egg if one reaches the next

This week we'll begin to look at mammals. We've
decided to leave the geography and history behind
a little to go the way of nature so as to lend some
balance to what you are learning. Let's begin.

Everything can be divided into animal, vegetable,
or mineral categories if we look at each situation

When we say animal we mean the following en-
listed creatures (dumb creatures):

* Any creature that can move of its own free
will; and
* Birds, fishes, reptiles and insects.
But when we speak of animals in the ordinary way
we really mean mammals.
Mammals are animals which:
* produce their young complete; and
* nourish them in infancy on their mother's

However, there are some strange things in nature.
There are some mammals classified as animals
also that have the following strange characteristics:

* lay eggs;
* have webbed feet, and sharp claws;
* carry a broad beak like a dove (spiny ant-
eater or echidna, and the platypus are foremost
among them.
We are not going to major on these; they are just
mentioned in passing.
As we go on you will see how animals have been
able to develop the kind of feet, claws, jaws, coats,
eyes, and even stomachs which suit them best.
These characteristics will be looked at in turn

The Passage

She made him no reply.
"I am not too proud to believe it, Louisa. How could I
be arrogant, and you before me! Can it be so? Is it so,
He looked upon her, lying cast away there; and with-
out another word went out of the room. He had not been
long gone, when she heard a light tread near the door,
and knew that someone stood beside her.
She did not raise her head. A dull anger that she
should be seen in her distress, and that the involuntary
look she had so resented should come to this fulfillment,
smouldered within her like an unwholesome fire. All
closely imprisoned forces rend and destroy. The air that
would be healthful to the earth, the water that would en-
rich it, the heat that would ripen it, tear it when caged up.
So in her bosom even now; the strongest qualities she
possessed, long turned upon themselves, became a heap
of obduracy, that rose against a friend.
It was well that soft touch came upon her neck, and
that she supposed herself to have fallen asleep. The sym-
pathetic hand did not claim her resentment. Let it lie
there, let it lie.
It lay there, warming into life a crowd of gentler
thoughts; and she rested. As she softened with the quiet,
and the consciousness that she was being watched, some
tears made their way into her eyes. The face touched
hers, and she knew that there were tears upon it too, and
she the cause of them.
As Louisa feigned to raise herself, and sat up, Sissy
retired, so that she stood placidly near the bed-side.
"I hope I have not disturbed you. I have come to ask if
you would let me stay with you."
"Why should you stay with me? My sister will miss
you. You are everything to her."
"Am I?" returned Sissy, shaking her head. "I would be
something to you if I might."
"What?" said Louisa almost sternly.
"Whatever you want most, if I could be that. At all
events, I would like to try to be as near it as I can. And
however far off that may be, I will never tire of trying. Will
you let me?"

About the excerpt
1. By now you will have had the opportunity to read a
story about a family member that got ill suddenly and still
seemed to gain the attention of the household. Read the
passage again, and this time, determine adjectives that
can sum up the sick person's mind set. Proceed to write
a description which gives a clear picture of the sick young
woman's personality.
2. Write a description of the other character.
3. Write a conversation between two little sisters and a
sick bigger sister. Just tell anything you think is fitting
conversation for them in the crisis.


Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-need, coughing like hags, we cursed through
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs,
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame, all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of gas-shells dropping softly behind.
Gas! Gas! Quick, boys! -An ecstasy of fumbling,
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time,
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And floundering like a man in fire or lime -
Dim through the misty panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.
In all my dreams before my helpless sight
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.
If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him I,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin;
if you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,

Bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, -
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardentfor some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.

The Narrative
There was once a great short story writer and English
novelist, W. Somerset Maugham, who was a very suc-
cessful, character constructionist. He said in a personal
comment that a writer does not copy his originals. When
a writer discovers originals, he/she proceeds to use what
combinations of characteristics he/she wants from them.

If you are really interested in character construction, read
the following composition. When you are finished, study
how the character has been 'constructed.' What does
the writer of the story tell you about his Uncle? Is there
any wisdom in selecting all of the characteristics of the
original Uncle Fred? Would he have lost his individuality
in a deluge of characteristics? Does the writer tell about
a single trait that has fired his imagination? What is it?

The Great Hunter
My uncle Fred lives in Utah. When the cool weather be-
gins to creep down from the mountains, he starts to think
about hunting. He cleans his rifles, polishes his shot-
gun, and repairs his camping equipment He digests whole
books about hunting for deer, tracking mountain lions,
and cornering wild pigs. He bombards manufacturers of
hunting equipment with letters requesting information
about new devices that guarantee a successful hunt. He
haunts all the local sporting goods stores.
Last year Uncle Fred prepared with more than usual
care for his annual hunt. He tracked down special
ammunition for his various rifles and outfitted him-
self and his station wagon with enough equipment to
keep an African safari on the move for a month.
Uncle Fred left the night before the hunting season
opened and stayed up in the hills for four days. In
the evening of the fourth day, our eager, searching
eyes were rewarded by the sight of the hunter's cara-
van returning. What would he have in the back of
his wagon? What tales of great adventures would he
tell? What great dangers had he overcome? We
rushed into the driveway and surrounded Uncle Fred.
Solemnly, he letdown the tailgate and undid the folds of a
tarpaulin. Instead of a noble deer with branching horns or
a wild pig with sharp tusks, there lay silent in death a
jackrabbit. Uncle Fred had finished his hunt.

Look closer at the passage that features Uncle Fred by
finding answers to the following questions.

1. What trait of Uncle Fred caught the writer's attention?
2. Which do you suppose Uncle Fred enjoys more --
hunt or the preparation for hunt?
3. Verbs have been described as "words that carry the
burden of communication." List the verbs in the composi-

tion about Uncle Fred. Has the writer selected verbs with
high communicative value?

Construct a character of your own as it is suggested by
one of the following topics. You can write on a topic of
your own choosing, if that is your desire. Before you
write your composition, prepare a list of verbs that are
appropriate to your topic and have high communication

It is almost one year to the end of study time before the
CXC English A examination. Because of that, there is
more than enough time to improve in the areas in which
you do not have much confidence. The continuous writ-
ing sections, if they are done well, rake in a lot of marks.
Try to concentrate on your improvement.
Continue to talk about, choose and use nouns and verbs
and adjectives that fit contexts you are trying to create.

Use study partners to discuss any composition that you

Read the following statement considerately.
Whatever thought you wish to verbalise there can be one
noun only by which to express it, one verb only by which
to give it life, and one adjective only by which to it can be
described. Do you agree with that statement? It is ex-
pressing clear thinking by those who write. Writers of
any genre must be able to choose that particular word to
fit that particular situation that is to be built up. Find that
noun. Find that verb. Find that adjective. Let each work
towards the desired outcome.

Here is a composition. As you read it, pay rapt attention
to the verbs, which the writer has used. Examine his
choice of nouns. Look at the choice of adjectives. Get
your friends and study partners together in this business
too. Talk together about word choice. Is the topic prop-
erly expressed by the noun choices? Have the verbs and
adjectives given life to the topic? What do you think about
the effort below?

The Old House
The road to Prescott winds past a deserted house that
peers out sadly from a clump of tamaracks. Long ago, it
was constructed of adobe blocks laid flat and held with
heavy clay. Today a skeleton-like chimney reaches above
the roof and clutches to the sky. The adobe has crumbled
in gaping patches, and chunks of red lie scattered in the
grass. The window frames hang listlessly from the body
of the house. Their panes have long since shattered and
disappeared. Afew bent shingles still curve over the roof
boards. The desolation of the house is broken only by
the birds nesting in the eaves.
The passer-by gives the house a quick look and wonders.
What lives were once sheltered here? What circum-
stances enticed the occupants from this wooded spot by
a winding road?

Can you now draw the picture that was painted by the
composition above? That is good for you.
Think of a building iat has quickened your imagination;
think even about ( e that is a mystery a jailhouse, a
condemned great II, a backyard cottage, a government
building, a giant stt. house. Write about the structure,
searching until you discover the right nouns and verbs
and adjectives to f ve your composition life. A mysteri-
ous place needs s sory words. Choose your adjectives
especially well.

Burglarylrobbery accused convict

gets 40 years, 12 strokes

N 1994, Frank
Rutherford, one of
two men accused of
burglary and robbery
with aggravation, was
jailed for 20 years on
each count and ordered
to receive 12 strokes
with the whip.
The trial Judge, Lennox
Perry, (now Chairman of the
Guyana Public Service Appel-
late Tribunal) imposed the pen-
alty after a mixed Demerara As-
size jury had found the accused
Rutherford's partner in
crime, Aubrey Ramsay, who
faced trial on the joint charge,
was found not guilty and was
discharged by the Judge.
After deliberating for more
than two hours the jury had ar-
rived at a majority verdict of
guilty in proportion of 10 to
two in respect to Rutherford.
In imposing sentence Jus-
tice Perry expressed the hope
that the sentence would serve as
a deterrent to others who were
.inclined to commit similar of-
Rutherford was sentenced to
20 years on each count. The
Judge did not order that the sen-
tences should run concurrently,
indicating that they should run
consecutively, meaning that the
prisoner would have to serve 40
However, in respect to the
No. 2 accused Aubrey Ramsay,
the jury had unanimously ar-
rived at a verdict of not guilty.
By their verdict they had

concluded that the Prosecution
had not satisfied them on the
question of identification as far
as Ramsay was concerned.
Rutherford had made an oial
confession which had strength-
ened the Prosecution's case.
Both men, who had pleaded
not guilty, had led alibi de-
fences, indicating that they were
somewhere else at the time of
the alleged crime.
They were charged with
breaking and entering Della
Baijnauth's home on June 26,
1984, with intent to steal. They
were also accused of robbery


with aggravation.
The facts of the case dis-
closed that Della Baijnauth, of
Agricola Village, bolted the doors
and windows of her house.
About 11 o'clock on the
night of June 26, 1984, and
sometime before 2.30 am on
the morning of June 27, she
was aroused by dogs barking.
Soon after, her bedroom
window was smashed in. Then
someone broke the bedroom
door and the men entered the
building, the Prosecution had al-
Baijnauth, the first witness,
told the Judge and jury that af-
ter she saw the men jumping
over her fence, she spoke to her
husband and they both started
to shout for thief.

According to her, they then
went into a bathroom to hide.
Whilst there, she saw a masked
face peeping over the wall that
separates the toilet from the
That person, she said had
something like a pipe and
the person said "come out
and keep no noise or else I'll
Her husband, Oscar Will-
iams, held on to the pipe and
begged the robber not to shoot
and indicated that they would
come out.
At that point, she said, "a
man held:me by my hand and
took me out of the bathroom. I
saw two men, one of them had
on a

rge Barclay

mask over his face and an axe
in his hand.
The man who took me out
of the bath room had no mask,
just trousers and no shirt. He
demanded that I give him my
one-side gold bracelet which I
was wearing. I gave the bracelet
to him. The man then forcibly
took me upstairs", the witness
had said.
Continuing, the witness
said that on being taken up-
stairs, she saw Rutherford,
whom she had known before,
coming out of a bedroom. His
eyes were covered with gauze.
The witness also said that
she knew the accused by the
name of Frankie and that he used
to visit her shop from time to

The Judge had directed the
jury on the question of identifi-
cation, and pointed out that
clothing was not a proper iden-
tification, since many persons
might have been wearing simi-
lar clothing. -
One of the witnesses for the
Prosecution was Inspector Gor-
don Gilhuys, (now an Attor-
ney'at-law.) He had testified
about visiting the scene and find-
ing that the'house was broken
and entered and ransacked.
He testified that he was
given a list of the jewellery al-
leged to have been stolen.
According to Gilhuys, he
told the men of the accusation
and cautioned Rutherford. He
said-that Rutherford remained
Rutherford was alleged to
have made an oral confession to
P.C. Ramsay which was chal-
lenged by the accused.
After holding a voir dire
(a trial within a trial) Justice
Perry found that the state-
ment by the accused was ob-
tained freely and voluntarily,
and directed that it be read to
the jury as evidence.
The oral confession was to
the effect that Rutherford had
said, "It is not me alone; I gon
call the names of the rest of per-
sons who went with me".
Justice Perry had told the
jury: "If you find in fact and

you believe Ramsay that the
number one accused did make
that statement, then you may
want to feel that he has con-
fessed to his participation in
this crime and it is open to you
to convict him. If you are not
satisfied that he made such a
statement, then you are to dis-
regard it; if in doubt, do the
same and thereafter you would
still have to examine the other
evidence presented to you by
the Prosecution and see if they
have discharged the burden of
proof cast upon them to satisfy
you that the two accused are
guilty as charged.
In statements from the dock
both accused maintained they
were not guilty and led alibi de-
Rutherford said that he was
asleep at his home at the time
of the alleged offence, while
Ramsay said that he was at
Coverden on the East Bank of
Demerara when the crime was
alleged to have been committed.
In his final directions to the
jury, the Judge told them: "If
you believe the alibi of the two
accused, then it would clearly be
a positive case of mistaken iden-
tity, but if you disbelieve it,
then it is your duty to examine
closely the Prosecution's evi-
dence of identification to see
whether a mistake might have
been made and if so, the

Prosecution's case would not
have been proved beyond rea-
sonable doubt.
"In other words, members
of the jury, because the accused
in this case did not give evi-
dence, that by itself cannot sup-
port the identification, and if
you feel that the accused told
you lies about where they were
at the material time, this does
not by itself prove that they
were where Della Baijnauth said
they were.
"Are you convinced, mem-
bers of the jury, that Della
Baijnauth and her family were
robbed? Are you convinced that
they were robbed of jewellery?
Are you convinced that they
were robbed by the two accused
acting in concert to rob them?
"If you are so convinced,
and only if you are so con-
vinced, and convinced beyond
reasonable doubt, may you con-
vict them.
"If you are in doubt, find
them not guilty. Please do your
duty without fear or favour. You
may retire to consider your ver-
dict", Justice Perry had told the
After deliberating for
more than two hours, the jury
returned a majority verdict of
guilty in relation to Ruther-
ford, and a unanimous not
guilty verdict in respect to

WHEN you see the garbage
pile-ups in your cities, you look
away from it and hold your
nose as you cross it. Have you
ever thought that you also play
a role in the creation of that
stench? Every time you throw
your food boxes, drink bottles
and unwanted materials into
your surroundings you add to
this stench and unsightly look-
ing garbage pile. Do you know
that you can play a more impor-
tant role in lessening this smell
and making your surroundings
look a little more attractive if
you follow proper methods of
waste disposal.

Since the beginning of hu-
man existence, man has been
generating waste, be it the bones
and other parts of animals they
slaughter for their food or the
wood they cut to make their
carts. As time progressed, man-
kind became more and more
industrialized. By the end of the
19"' century, the industrial revo-
lution saw the rise of the
world's consumers. The in-
crease in population and
urbanisation was largely respon-
sible for the increase in solid

Many experts define solid
waste as any garbage, refuse, or
solid components of the waste
humans generate daily. Other-_
wise referred to as trash, solid
waste consists of everyday
items such as boxes, grass clip-
pings, bottles, food scraps, rub-
ber etc. However, solid waste is
also known to refer to any gar-

bage, refuse, sludge or other dis-
carded materials, including solid,
liquid, Semi-solid, or contained
gaseous materials resulting from
industrial, commercial, mining,
and agricultural activities and
from community activities.


Solid waste can be classified
into different types depending
on their source:
Household waste is
generally classified as municipal
Industrial waste as
hazardous waste.
Hospital waste or
biomedical waste as infectious

Municipal solid waste con-
sists of household waste, con-
struction and demolition debris,
sanitation residue, and waste
from streets. This garbage is
generated mainly from residen-
tial and commercial complexes.

Hazardous waste could be
highly toxic to humans. animals.
and plants; are corrosive, highly
flammable or explosive: and re-
act when exposed to certain
things e.g. gases. Certain types
of household waste are also
hazardous. These include old
batteries, shoe polish, paint
tins, old medicines, and medi-
cine bottles. Industrial and hos-
pital waste are also considered
hazardous as they may contain
toxic substances such as form-


aldehyde and phenols used as
disinfectants in hospitals, and
mercury used in mining indus-

Hospital waste is generated
during the diagnosis, treatment,
or immunisation of human be-
ings or animals or in research ac-
tivities in these fields or in the
production or testing of
biologicals. It may include waste
like anatomical waste, cultures,
discarded medicines, chemical
waste etc. This waste is highly
infectious and can be a serious
threat to human health if not
managed in a scientific and
proper manner.

NOW that we have concluded our discus
sions on the geriatric pet which effectively
brings the series to an end, I would like to
write a few columns on the use (misuse) of drugs.
Also, I would like to share with you some infor-
mation on medications that we vets use in our daily
Anesthetics are drugs used to block the sensation of pain. They
are divided into two general categories local and general.
Local anesthetics are used for operations on the surface of the
body where they are infiltrated locally into the tissue or into a re-
gional nerve. They may be applied topically to mucus membranes.
While local anesthetics (such as Xylocaine) have the fewest risks
and side effects, they are not suitable for most major operations.
General anesthetics render the dog unconscious. They can be
given by injection or inhalation. Light doses sedate or relax the dog
and may be suitable for short procedures (such as removing fish
hooks from the mouth). Inhaled gases (such as Halothane) are ad-
ministered through a tube placed in the wind pipe (trachea).
The dose of an anesthetic is computed by weight of the
dog. Certain breeds have a low tolerance for barbiturates and
other anesthetics. Whippets, Afghan Hounds, Great Pyrenees,

and perhaps others may require less anesthetic than other
breeds of comparable weight. Your veterinarian will make the
final decision.
The dosage of any given anesthetic will vary greatly, even among
dogs of the same size. Therefore, they must be given only by some-
one trained to determine the degree of sedation they produce. Com-
binations of anesthetics or anesthetics and sedatives often are used
to lessen the potential side effects.
The removal of an anesthetic agent is by the lungs, liver, or
kidneys, depending on the choice of agent. Impaired function of
these organs can cause anesthetic complications. If your dog has a
history of lung, liver, kidney or heart disease, be sure to discuss it
with your veterinarian.
A major risk of general anesthesia is having a dog vomit when
going into anaesthesia induced unconsciousness or waking up after
the surgery. The vomitus refluxes into the windpipe and lungs
producing suffocation because the vomit material blocks the air
intake. This can be avoided by keeping the stomach empty for 12
hours before scheduled surgery. Accordingly, if you know your dog
is going to have an operation, don't give it anything to eat or drink
after 6:00 pm the night before. This means picking up.his water
dish and keeping him away from any source of water.
We have relied on a handbook for pets authored by Drs
Giffin and Carlson for most of the test in this article.
