6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 30, 200.




AS THE saying goes, a post-mortem does not bring
back the dead. But in the case of 11-year-old school
girl Stephanie Persaud, there is a moral obligation on
the part of the Ministry of;Health to immediately pursue
an inquiry to determine why recognized expert medical
opinion was NOT sought before the performance of
surgery on the child.
i Medical authorities confirm that ovarian
cancer is most uncommon among children and
certainly for an 11-year-old.
What is painfully shocking in the case of
Stephanie, is that though death was inevitable, as
eventually diagnosed, surgery was performed without
prior expert medical opinion. Why?
In the view of Mitzy Campbell, head of Guyana
Cancer Society, such expert opinion should first have

been sought before the performance of surgery.
A deeply disturbed colleague of mine rightly
remarked this past week, that it has to be a "very
primitive system" in which a child's cervix, uterus, part
of her bowels and bladder are removed at the country's
premier public hospital which then sends her home a
week later without, as reported, relevant medication.
The horrors of parents who had to borrow
money to seek overseas medical attention, frustrated
in one case by denial of a visa to have their
daughter treated in the USA, are other aspects of the
agony in this very sad case of Stephanie.
It is encouraging to know that, finally, as recently
announced by Health Minister Leslie Ramsammy
during 'Cancer Awareness Week' activities, that
Guyanese cancer patients should have access by year
end to radio therapy treatment as a result of an
agreement he has signed with Global Imaging
Services of Chicago, USA.
This, however, should not be confused with an
obligation to probe the circumstances surrounding the
medical treatment little Stephanie obtained before the
operation and what, if any serious effort was made to
secure expert opinion by those lacking such
knowledge but involved with her case.
The findings of such an investigation
should be made public by the Minister of Health, if not
the Chief Medical Officer in the interest of public
awareness and, possibly, help to answer some of the
questions of her parents who seem to have done all
that they possibly could to help her..
Like a number of its Caribbean Community

partners, Guyana lacks the effectively deal
with two of the four major non-communicable killer
diseases of our region cancer and heart diseases.
That's why such patients from this country
and the Eastern Caribbean often, travel to nearby
Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados where costs,
though high, are at least less burdensome than'
seeking required medical attention in Britain or the
United States of America.
Executive Presidents of Guyanato so-
called ordinary folks have had to seek'overseas;
medical aid for cardiac-related problems fatally late,
:in a few cases but the bureaucracy, under changing!
governments, continues to move disgustingly slowly in;
terms of having on stream minimum f .expert staff
and facilities to deal with heart and cancer patients. 1

IN THE ongoing battles to
ensure national/regional
security in the face
of escalating trans-border
crimes in narco-trafficking,
gun-running and money
laundering, Caribbean
Community states need
much more than token
foreign financial aid for
cooperation with North
America and Europe.
Dumping on the region's
doorsteps thousands of
categorised "criminal deportees"
as unwanted Caribbean
nationals at least some 11,00
within recent years only add
to the challenges CARICOM
states face in effectively dealing
with the epidemic of murders,
kidnapping, armed robberies
and criminal violence while
being vigilant against
international terrorism.
This scenario itself
poses a special challenge for a
consensual approach by
CARICOM states to redefine,
in their own interests,
the desired "cooperation" with
European and North American
anti-crime and anti-terrorist
The moreso, as it
becomes increasingly necessary
for this region to have a common
rapid deployment force in
response to trans-border crimes
that pose serious threats to
national security and, by
extension regional security.
Further, to put in place
much talked about and long
overdue plans for an effective
CARICOM-wide "witness
protection programme" to
protect those courageous enough
to show up for court trials in
support of prosecution
against murderers, kidnappers,
gun-runners and money
launderers. .
In this context,
CARICOM states should also
critically review individual and

collective initiatives against the
escalating threats they face from
armed criminals and corrupt
cops and other elements in the
justice administration system, to
determine how best to benefit
from each other's experiences in
anti-crime initiatives.
One CARICOM state
that is moving with some
consistency in preparing its law
enforcing agencies to be better
placed to deal with a sickening
crime epidemic, is Jamaica.
Bearing the unflattering
reputation Jamaica now shares
with Trinidad and Tobago as a
leading "crime capital" of the
Western Hemisphere, it would
have come as quite encouraging

criticisms of the functioning of the
While the Jamaican
authorities were focused on

putting their own house in order
for a more expanded and
systematic anti-crime
programme, Guyana and
Trinidad and Tobago were
involved in anti-crime initiatives
of their own.
'Having sought
assistance from the USA to help
curb escalating murders,
kidnapping and sporadic
bombings, the Prime Minister

of Trinidad and Tobago, Patrick
Manning, was engaged in
discussions last week with head
of the US Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI), Robert
Mueller flew in for what
turned out to be less than a day
of discussions and assessments
and left with the surprising
unqualified claim that there were
"no terrorist cells" operating in
the twin-island state.
Since FBI agents were
not known to be working on the
ground prior to Mueller's flying
visit, and according to public
perception ransom kidnapping
and explosions of anti-personnel
bombs were consistent with
"terroristic activities", the
Bureau's top man immediately
ran into sharp criticisms for his

living in fear.
In neighboring Guyana,
like Trinidad and Tobago,
communities continue to live in
fear of criminals who are
committing some of the most
gruesome acts of killings and
stunning armed robberies.
Last week, may have
produced a sigh of relief as units
of the police and army were
jointly involved in a major anti-
crime offensive focused
on communities along the East
Coast, and the village of Buxton
in particular.
The security forces were
doing more than searching for
illegal arms and ammunition, or
questioning hundreds of citizens
in their 'Operation Stiletto' anti-
crime thrusts.
They were also

emphasised that they would not
be deterred in their initiatives,
as they signalled that the
campaign would be extended
beyond the East Coast to other
crime-infested areas.
If there is a common
thread in current anti-crime
initiatives in CARICOM states
like Jamaica, Trinidad and
Tobago and Guyana, it seems
to be a more calculated and
positive mood by the
disciplined forces to undermine
and destroy the criminal
networks at large.
It is a formidable
challenge and requires
maximum public cooperation
for which these forces would
have to work hard to secure,
but which they certainly
need and deserve.

Preview of the Summit of the Americas.


leaders commit

to fight poverty

By Odeen Ishmael

HE Heads of State and Government of the
Americas Cuba excepted will gather in
the-Argentine coastal city of Mar del Plata
on November 4-5, 2005 for the fourth Summit of
the Americas. They are expected to reaffirm their
commitment to combat poverty throughout the

Previous summits held
in Miami (1994) Santiago de
Chile (1998), and Quebec (2001)
produced impressive political
declarations and ambitious
action plans, and this fourth
summit will certainly do
However, the previous
action plans listing out numerous
projects to spur development
and fight poverty in the
Americas have fallen short due
to various factors including lack
of funding, shortage of political
commitment, political instability
in some countries, trade
protectionism, and changing
priorities in the political,
economic and social spheres.
Many grand proposals

have never seen the light of day.
For instance, at the Quebec
summit, the Caribbean and
Central American regions were
promised at least two centres of
excellence to train teachers. But
other than watered-down
limited distance-learning courses
being introduced, the two
regions have not obtained any
tangible benefits.
These centres were
expected to reverse the outflow
of trained teachers from the
Caribbean and Central America,
but what has happened since
2001 is that these regions have
lost a great number of their
trained teachers who have been
recruited to work in the United
States. And this problem will
continue despite the hallowed
declaration to combat poverty
and expand education to the
teeming poverty-stricken

masses in Latin America and the
Another disappointment
was that the formation of a corps
of "development volunteers",
initially proposed by Guyana
and agreed upon eleven years ago
by the Miami summit, never got
off the ground. Such a group of
skilled people from all over the
Americas remains very essential
especially in light of the
numerous natural disasters in
various countries where they can
render much needed assistance.
The upcoming Argentine
summit is aimed at "creating jobs
to combat poverty and strengthen
democratic governance". It will
issue a political declaration of
more than 30 paragraphs which
will outline the leaders'
perspectives on growth with
employment, creating jobs to
fight poverty, training the labour
force, building a framework for
creating decent work, and
strengthening' democratic
governance. One of the actions to
be supported will be micro-credit
schemes for small businesses, a
scheme which is already gaining
ground in many countries in the

The summit will
address the issue of fighting
poverty as the major concern
of the hemisphere. It will stick
to the goal of Millennium
Summit on reducing by 50 per
cent the proportion of persons
living in extreme poverty by
2015, even though this goal
now looks very unfeasible
considering that extreme
poverty has actually increased
in the hemisphere over the
past five years.
The leaders are also
expected .to commit


themselves to ensure the full
access of "Afro-descendants",
"indigenous" populations, and
people with disabilities to
educational and job
opportunities to help them
overcome poverty and social
exclusion. For Latin Americans,
talking openly about
discrimination against their
citizens of African descent in
high political' circles was
always taboo. But by now
openly recognizing the negative
effects against this population
group in Latin American
countries, the governments
realise that racial

discrimination is a serious
problem which must be
addressed immediately and
But what happens on
the sidelines of the summit may
be of even greater significance.
A meeting of civil society
groups from across the
hemisphere will take place in a
nearby location and it is
expected that their conclusions
regarding methodology in
combating poverty will be
presented to the 34 leaders.
No one is yet able to
determine if public protest
demonstrations are expected as
was experienced in Quebec
when thousands protested
against the FTAA. But with
negotiations on free trade
enjoying a deep slumber, anti-
free trade protesters will find it
difficult to use that issue as a
protest platform.
But at the higher
political level, there are plans
by the presidents of Peru,
Ecuador and Colombia to meet
together with US President
George W. Bush on November
4 to speed up US-Andean trade
talks aimed at eliminating trade
barriers. The three Andean
presidents sent a letter to Bush
earlier this month urging the
American government to be
more flexible in negotiations
which started in May 2004, but
which ran into difficulties and
are still to be concluded. The
four countries are trying to work
out a free trade agreement aimed
at replacing US-Andean trade
benefits linked to anti-drug
efforts and which are due to
expire in 2006.
The chief objective of
the summit process, the

establishment of the Free Trade
Area of the Americas (FTAA)
by 2005, has not materialised.
And considering all the
problems confronting the stalled
negotiation process, it is
doubtful if this free trade area,
as envisaged by the negotiators
four years ago will ever be
formalised by the time the fifth
.summit comes around in foui
years' time.
In the .pre-summit
negotiations within the Summit
Implementation Review Group,
each sub-region, and, in some
cases, particular countries, have
been trying to win support for
their position on specific issues
to be inserted in the final
political declaration and the
action plan. The CARICOM
countries have insisted that
since hemispheric free trade is
an integral part of the-Summit
process, a clear signal must
come from the highest political
level in the hemisphere of the
continuing commitment to the
goals and objectives of the
FTAA. As such, they want the
leaders to make strong
statements to show their

hemisphere win have to wait
until November 5 to discover
what the leaders will finally
decide on this crucial matter. It
is generally believed that the
leaders will instruct the FTAA
trade negotiation team to meet
in early 2006 to restart
discussions, but it is clear that
little progress will be made in
that direction unless existing
impediments are removed.

Arthur Belgrave, retired Managing Director of the GTM Group of
Companies passed away peacefully in the United States of America
on September 27,2005, aged 83.

During an illustrious career, he had served GTM with great loyalty
and dedication for 43 years prior to retirement in 1983. With a keen
mind, he always strove to keep abreast of innovations and
developments on the international scene. He took special, personal
interest in GTM's marketing and sales functions as well as in its
expansion both in Guyana and the Caribbean. Though retired and
living abroad, he continued to take an active interest in the fortunes
of GTM.

Having himself qualified through self-study as an Associate of the
Chartered Insurance Institute, he vigorously promoted education
and training as the means for achieving excellence in our industry.
He was the founding President of the Insurance Institute of Guyana
which next year will observe its 40th. Anniversary continuing the
exemplary work initiated by Arthur. Many of the current
professionals in our industry were inspired by him to pursue
professional qualifications in insurance.

He worked tirelessly to promote cooperation within the insurance
industry and served several terms as President of the Insurance
Association of Guyana. He was a founding father of the Insurance
Association of the Caribbean which recognized his invaluable
contribution by electing him to honorary membership. As its
Education Chairman, he initiated the process that later culminated
in establishment of the Association of Insurance Institutes of the
Caribbean which has as a major objective a Caribbean regional
qualification in insurance.

After his retirement, Arthur Belgrave and his wife Mavis relocated to
Florida to be closer to their children and grandchildren. He is
survived by Mavis, their children Brian and Shelley (Da Silva) and
their respective families.

EPA Amendment Bill passed

PNC watsEA-or posbites-elb9l

By Chamanlall Naipaul
THE Environmental Protec-
tion Agency (EPA) Amend-
ment Bill was passed in the
National Assembly without
any major controversy, but
the main opposition party,
the People's National Con-
gress/Reform (PNC/R) urged
the EPA to take it wider re-
sponsibilities more seriously.
Prime Minister Sam Hinds,
who moved the second reading
of the Bill, told the House at its
sitting last Thursday that the
intention of the legislation is to
reduce the time it takes for in-
vestors to get their projects
The Bill sought to have the
processing time of appeals to
the EPA reduced from 28 days
to 14 days when disagreement
between investors and the EPA
arises, particularly the small and
medium-scale projects where an

Environmental Impact Assess-
ment (EIA) is not necessary, the
Prime Minister explained.
The Bill also sought to re-
move the necessity of having a
full-time Chairman of the Envi-
ronment Appeal Tribunal
(EAT) and its Vice-Chairman
being an Attorney-at-Law.
Mr. Hinds reiterated the
need for the protection of the
environment in order to have
sustainable development.
He argued that inevitably,
man's quest to satisfy his basic
needs will impact on the envi-
ronment and therefore ways
have to be found to live prop-
erly and, at the same time, en-
sure that there is minimum ad-
verse impact on the environ-

is aiming for rapid develop-
ment and growth, the EPA

tive impact the drive towards
accelerated growth could have
on the environment, Hinds
Based on experience gained
during the developmental pro-
cess, amendments and refining
of environmental legislation
would be instituted as the situ-
ation demands, Hinds said.
PNC/R's lone speaker on
the Bill, Lance Carberry said his
party did not have objections to
the legislation, but expressed
concerns that the EPA should be
handling wider issues which are
pivotal to the very existence of
people living along the coast,
such as the impact of climate
change on the environment and
the protection of local
He also urged that the EPA
be involved in more intensive
research in Guyana's resources
so that they could be utilised in

a more structured way, and that
legislation be sought to protect
indigenous knowledge of local
Minister of -Fisheries,
Crops and Livestock and acting
Minister of Agriculture,
Satyadeow Sawh who con-
curred with Carberry on the is-
sue of climate change and the
protection of biodiversity, said
the EPA is evolving in the face
of world reality, and amend-
ments to the legislation are part
of the process of streamlining

pertinent environmental issues.
He also supported the
Prime Minister's position on
the need to reduce the time it
takes investors to get on with
their projects.
"Time is money," he reiter-

primary bearers," President
Bharrat Jagdeo charged the
first batch of graduated from
the Saraswati Vidya Niketan
school, at Cornelia Ida (CI),
West Coast Demerara, Friday.

I of Excellence to top student,

He congratulated the twenty-
eight graduates and encouragedthlem
to promulgate honesty each day of
their lives and continue to woarkhard
io achieve success.
Mr. Jagdeo told the batch to
become aware of what is hap-
pening in their communities as
well as challenges facing Guyana
and the rest of the world.
He said, in too many homes,
children are disrespectful to par-
ents, guardians and elders, and
added, "Elders may see things
differently and some young
people might think they are not
modern enough, but parents are
always driven by good inten-
tions for their children."
The President told the
young people to develop skills,
act wisely, be guided by their
hearts, always be proud of their
ancestry and never ashamed of
their religion and culture.
According to Mr. Jagdeo,

there is a perception, which must
be fought, that if a culture is not
western, then it is inferior.
He told the graduates: "You are
now in a unique period of your lives
and your outlook of the world is
what should guide you throughout
your are the hope for a
better future. You must never have
fears to actively propagate what you
believe in and you must be proud
of this school and your teachers."
He also congratulated their
teachers and advised them to
continue to nurture the new gen-
eration that will inherit Guyana.
The Head-of-State also pre-
sented the President's Award of
Excellence to the school's top
student, Ms. Nirmala Singh, who

Principal of the private sec-

said analysis prepared by the

(NCERD) showed that Queen's
College (QC) obtained an over-
all 84.5 per cent and Bishop's
High, 85.1 per cent, while the
CXC analysis obtained from the
Ministry of Education, revealed
that his school obtained an over-
all success rate of 85.9 per cent.
According to
Aksharanandaji, Hindu philoso-
phy is the basis under which the
school launches its programmes,
and he noted that the institution
has been blessed with an out-
standing teaching staff, one that
works beyond the call of duty.
He said undoubtedly, QC
and Bishops are the leading
schools, but in Hindtiism, infants
can do miracles and his school -

established secondary schools -

Sugar aid a'tilon pn I

GUYANA'S action plan to
ease the drastic impact of re-
duced sugar prices in the Eu-
ropean Union will soon be
ready, for submission to the
European Commission, For-
eign Trade and International
Cooperation Minister Clem-
ent Rohee says.
He told the Government In-
formation Agency (GINA) the
plan is being fine-tuned for sub-
mission to Brussels while
Guyana and other sugar produc-
ers in the African, Caribbean and
Pacific (ACP) group continue
lobbying to reduce the effects of
the proposed deep cuts in the
EU preferential price for sugar.
The process has been set in
train and upon completion will
be submitted to the- EU delega-

tion here for onward submission
to Brussels, he said.
"The action plan is almost
completed, (there is) just some
fine- tuning left to be done in or-
der to bring a national dimension
to the plan," Mr Rohee said.
"We are now at a very im-
portant stage of our internal
preparations and this has to do
with the submission to the EU
delegation and DIFID (British
Department for International
Development) of the terms of
reference for the procurement of
a consultant to assist us in the
formulation of a draft action
plan", he told GINA.
This aspect, he said, is re-
quired by each ACP sugar pro-
ducer to qualify for resources
. :with the imposition of the pro-

posed 39 per cent cut.
The Guyana Sugar Corpora-
tion (GUYSUCO) is drawing up
the plan to enable Guyana to
have access to the accompany-
ing measure stipulated by the
EU as part of the reformation
The proposed reform would
see the price for sugar being 730
Euros per tonne in year one, de-
clining to 625 Euros, 520 Euros
and 420 Euros in the second,
third and final years respec-
According to the reform
document issued by the EU on
June 22 last, consideration has
been given to the differences
between the ACP countries and
a broad range of support options
is being offered, to be' tailored in

'Don't turn green

to greediness

Local Tourism Development leader

By Neil Marks

A LEADER in tourism development and conservation in the
north Rupununi has returned from the Eighth World Wilder-
ness Congress (WWC), plugging for resources to develop and
preserve the vast expanses of wilderness areas here.
According to Sydney Allicock from Surama Village in Region Nine
who attended the Congress in Anchorage, Alaska, Guyana has a
golden opportunity to be a leader in the field of tourism South
Allicock said that after hearing the stories of the destruction of
wilderness areas around the world, he hoped Guyana's "green would
not turn into greediness" as happened elsewhere.
The Eighth WWC, held from September 25- October 6, involved
1 200 delegates from up to 60 nations, and heavily emphasised the
role of native peoples in protecting wilderness and wildlands.
This country has more than 70 per cent of its forest intact, and
Allicock posited that this rich biodiversity could be exploited for
the benefit of the Amerindian people. He however cautioned that

Al ,"

each country to the needs
identified by the stakeholders,
and integrated into a long-term,
comprehensive, sustainable
The types of assistance
have been designed with particu-
lar attention to the effectiveness
of implementation.
The EC proposes to start
implementing the assistance
scheme as soon as 2006, since
the complexity of restructuring
and diversifying require sus-
tained efforts.
An initial budget of $ 40M
has been earmarked for 2006
and further long-term assis-
tance will be secured for the
period 2007-2013.

this exploitation must be conducted in a sustainable manner.
"We have lost a great deal of the art of management of the forest
or wilderness," Allicock said, making reference to the practices of
his Amerindian foreparents.
He said the management courses he participated in while at the
Congress will now enable him to put some of them into practice.
He emerged among the 10 top persons who performed well
in the courses held on wilderness management, pointing out
that even though at times the language of forestry experts was
difficult to understand, his own experience put him in good
Allicock attended the Alaska congress along with a member of
the Wai Wai Council Cemci Sose, Minister of Amerindian Affairs
Carolyn Rodrigues and former Executive Director of Conservational
International (Guyana) Major General (rtd) Joseph Singh.
Mr. Singh said native peoples have for centuries been the
custodians of the wilderness areas around the world and should
be adequately compensated for their stewardship.
Wai Wai chief Cemci said he was happy to attend the WWC and
to learn from the challenges that are faced by indigenous people's in
maintaining their wilderness.
He shared the experience of the Wai Wai people in Guyana and
how they are managing their wilderness.
In her presentation at the WWC, Minister Rodrigues said she
called for a huge injection of donor funds to the Global Environment
Facility which helps developing countries fund projects and
programmes that protect the environment
She said that while Guyana has most of its forests intact, the
wanton exploitation of forests could become inevitable if funding for
sustainable utilisation is not forthcoming.
Minister Rodrigues said that governments just cannot tell people
not to cut down trees, when their livelihoods could depend on such
in the absence of funding to pursue ecologically sound practices that
preserve the environment but yet still feed native peoples.
The Congress achieved all of its conversation objectives and gen-
erated several unexpected results: new protected areas (both native
and governmental); new wilderness legislation; increased inter-gov-
ernmental and organisational cooperation yielding several new initia-
tives and networks; scores of professionals and volunteers trained in
wilderness management, communications, and advocacy; and new
funding to safeguard wildlands.
Delegates debated and eventually approved a targeted list
of 51 resolutions that addressed broad conservation concerns
as well as specific areas and issues needing international and
local attention and action.

(From page eight)
leaders see corruption is a
significant aspect in
strengthening democracy and
economic progress. They will,
therefore, stress the importance
of legislature oversight in the
fight against public and private
sector corruption, the level of
which is very high throughout
the hemisphere.
In dealing with the
issue of democracy, the Haitian
situation regarding free and fair
elections and respect for human
rights will no doubt feature
prominently. Ironically, despite
its non-democratic credentials,
and the questionable manner in
which its immediate past
president was removed from
power, the current Haitian
leadership will be represented at
the summit. So, too, will be the
presidents of Ecuador and
Bolivia, who, despite their
constitutional credentials, are
yet to face their own electorate.
So far, the Summit of
the Americas remains a
"democratic club" of
independent nations, with Cuba
not invited to participate.
Unfortunately, the Summit
members have continued to take
a "closed" view of the
hemisphere and, as a result, have
rejected the idea of inviting non-
independent democratic
governments of the hemisphere
to participate even as observers.
Surely, governments of non-
independent territories such as
Montserrat, British Virgin
Islands, Puerto Rico, Cayman
Islands, Turks and Caicos,
Bermuda and Curacao, and even -
the French Departments of
Martinique and Guadeloupe,
interact politically and
economically with the Caricom
countries, and their presence
could enhance their
understanding of their own role
in hemispheric integration. A
few years ago, as CARICOM's
representative on the executive
committee of the Summit
Implementation Review Group,
I raised the suggestion of the
participation of non-
independent territories as
observers in the Summit, but
the proposal did not garner
much support. No doubt, the
sensitivities of the participation
of the Falkland Islands (the
Malvinas), claimed by
Argentina, were uppermost in
the minds of many 'Latin
American delegations at that
Currently, we are
witnessing social and political
upheavals in many Latin
American countries, and it is
imperative that the leaders
address the root cause of such
manifestations. If they fail to
do so at this summit, no one
should be surprised if the
political situation, along with
the democratic process,
follows a downward trend
over the next four years.

Ambassador to Venezuela.)

million on our investment in the Dominican Republic. Additionally, as a result of the
restructuring of the Government of Grenada debt, we suffered an impairment expense of
$70 million. Excluding these non-recurring items, the Group's performance for 2005 was
8.55'o better than last year."

The Group's asset base has continued to grow, with total assets of $31.5 billion; $3 billion
greater than recorded for the same period last year.
The Group's return on assets for this year is 2.71% compared to 2.44% for September 2004.

of 7 Alexander St., Kitty and

who was called to rest on October 25, 2004.

I'm Free*
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
to laugh, to love, to work or play
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that place at the close of the day.
If parting has left a void, then fill it with joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
And yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you sunshine of tomorrow
My life has been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now, He set me free.


Softly the leaves of memory fall, gently we
gather and treasure them all.
Years will fly, tears will dry but precious
memories will never die.
To those who love and lost you, the
memories ofyou will always last
Because we love and will always love you.
Sadly missed by your loving wife, son,
loving mom, sister, nephew, niece,
mother-in-law, sisters-in-law, brothers-
in-law, uncle, aunts, cousins, all other
relatives and friends.

DONATIONS: Jeremiah Lee (left) has footballs for K&S
Director Aubrey 'Shanghai' Major.

SPONSORS have already begun making contributions to this
year's staging of the Christmas Football Festival, organised
by the Kashif & Shanghai Organisation (K&S).
K&S Director Aubrey 'Shanghai' Major, yesterday, told
Chronicle Sport that Sterling Optical of the USA was the first to
inject funding to the tournament.
"They have been.with the competition for some time now, but
this year, they came in a big way."
The latest contribution came from Jeremiah Lee who has
been associated with the annual football extravaganza for
about ten years. He has donated balls and cash.

AFTER 22 years, Guyana
Over-35 Rugby Club avenged
their 80's loss to Enthusiasts,
steamrolling the
Trinidadians 43-12, at the
National Park, yesterday.
Almost all the locals took
turns at outrunning the visitors
for some seven touchdowns,
with Robin Roberts, Sherlock
Solomon, Christopher
O'Donoghue, Alair George,
Michael Whitehead, Kenneth
Grant-Stuart and Vernon
Duncan scoring tries. There were
four conversions, three going to
former National captain Conrad
Arjoon and one to Alair George.
The game was played in

four segments, the first two
lasting for 15 minutes, and the
remaining two five minutes
By the end of the first
segment, the local Over-35s
were up 12-0. Roberts crossed
the try line first and Arjoon
was accurate with the
conversion, with National
coach Solomon producing the
second try.
In the second segment,
O'Donoghue got the Guyana
try, but Enthusiasts' Peter
Duncan pulled one back for the
visitors and Leslie Figaro made
good the conversion, but

Guyana were still up 17-7.
George closed the segment with
a try and locals maintained their
comfortable lead 22-7.
Whitehead went into action
in the first five-minute segment,
producing the try, with George
kicking an accurate conversion.
The score was now 29-7 in
Guyana's favour.
The Trinidadians started
the final segment with a try, but
Figaro missed the conversion,
the points turning out to be the

which Arjoon was good with
the conversion.
Grant-Stuart got the first
one, but it was the final one
finished by Duncan that
underlined the dominance of the
local Over-35s over the
Trinidadians. The run for the
try line began from the 22-
metre line in Enthusiasts' half,
with some nice running and
beautiful passes.
The brilliant spectacle,
however, dimmed momentarily
as Leonardo Butcher was forced
into a bad pass. But Duncan
collected, evaded the lone
defence and downed the ball to
right of the northern goal for a
wonderful close.
Trinidad Enthusiast had
won the fir't international
match against Guyana Over-
35 club on July 31, 1983.
Henry Wilkie, well-known as
'Rough Jack', was in that
match, and he was very much
present in the yesterday's
encounter. -

Johnny Come-lately

and his Wannabees

doing football an


I T IS interesting our weekly
how after just uleto o Ro
three weeks of lthalll R .
Goal Attack a
readership has been Ar
developed. Indeed I
have been stopped by
many persons in the
streets and at football to reason on football's
latest weekly column.
Since I have been accused by those dear to the sport of not
continuing to blaze the fire on the ills of football after igniting
the flame in the inaugural column Time for a Change I am
compelled to make the attack at the gloomy look for the sport
in the City.
Yes, I have no sides when it comes to the true and deplor-
able realities that pervade the 'Beautiful Game', so here we go
fanning the flame of 'Time for a Change'.
You would agree with me that the Georgetown Football
League is the livewire of the sport in the country, but at this
juncture the way the sport is being guided, or dictated for want
of a better word, it is headed for disaster.
The Premier and division one leagues will soon be com-
pleted and no one would deny that many irregularities existed,
chief among them the un-level playing field with regards to the
indifferent times matches were played. Yes, all sides could claim
the ten and twenty minutes. In some cases that claim was de-
nied and could have made a difference in the outcome of a lot
of games.
It is no fault of the players why precious minutes are lost
in games scheduled for during the week, but it is an indictment
on the administrators to insist on fixing matches for 16:00 h
when that is the time when most players and match officials
(referees and assistants) will be ending their day's job, so it is
impossible to start games on time. To add insult to injury, this
time of the year the sun sets very early in the evenings and
with lighted-fields a luxury we have two very wobbly leagues.
It is obvious very little thought was put into schedul-
ing matches for the' League competitions. Let's simplify
the structure to the best interest of all the stakeholders.
Both leagues consist of eight teams which means with two
rounds of competition we are looking at 56 games per di-
vision and if we play four games per weekend we are look-
ing at 14 weekends to complete both leagues.
I choose weekends to play games because that is the,
time when you can maxinmise your crowd support and
playing time. Friday and Sundays could be Premier double
headers with a supporting division one match on each day
as well-as double headers on Saturdays for the .division
one and,all the 16 teams would ha\e played over three:
days. It also gives all the teams the whole week to pre-
pare for their game so that %%hen the\ enter the field the.\
%ill plaN some quality football.
There was a situation in which for two Sunda.s football

little interest. I am positive there were no more than 100 per-
sons from the football fraternity attending, if so many. We also
had one referee officiating six consecutive games for a particu-'
lar team.
It seems more and more evident that Johnny Come-latel
and his Wannabees have their agendas which certainly are geared
towards their personal interests and not the development of.
the sport. Whatever happened to youth football, the future of
the sport?
We have been told that US$9 000 was invested in bringing
a Brazilian team for three games and I am positive you are go&-
:ing to hear at the end of the day that no money was made.
Now tell me would the sport not benefit more from that 'said.
money being invested in some stands for fans.
And just before I leave the blaze, why are the Premier
champions Fruta Conquerors not being given the oppor-:
tunity to play against the Brazilians? Not only do they Aje-
serve the opportunity but they also would be a more.for-.:
midable opposition than the friend-and-compian'y

THE long-awaited climaxing
of the inaugural President's
Cup Knockout (KO) football
competition takes place later
today at the Georgetown
Cricket Club (GCC) with old
rivals Pele and Santos match-
ing skills for $1 million.
The competition, which
was clouded by controversy in
the first instance, will finally


come to a conclusion after the
'finalists had been decided for
some time now. Both sides are
confident of lifting the
President's Cup and increasing
their riches.
Expectations in both camps
are very high, and as the history
of their meetings will testify, it
is always a joy to behold foot-
ball at its entertaining best. It is
quite a while since the two
South Georgetown ball-weavers

met in a final and today's match
is widely talked about.
in the current
Georgetown Football League
(GFL) competitions, Santos
have played unbeaten to be
one win away, from the
division one title while Pele
after a poor first-round

Dr. Fox was, on the one hand, in a state of awe that what exists
of Guyana's first people elsewhere in the world is highly prized
and celebrated, and on the other, perturbed that a similar disposi-
tion is not exhibited here.
In fact, she said the collection at the Walter Roth Museum of
Anthropology is not as carefully preserved as they are elsewhere
in the world. As a result of these observations, she has come from
London with a few ideas of how what is done at Horniman can be
replicated here.
The exhibition also moved Dr. Fox to accompany Cemsi back
to Masakeari Village, where she believes a living museum of Wai
Wai culture could be established and lure tourists.
Only discovered by westerners in the 1800s, the Wai Wai of
Guyana still live deep in the forest, and were said to be the legend-
ary White Indians, named so because of the paleness of their skin.
They were famous for painting their faces in intricate coloured
patterns, and for the beads and feathers they wore, and 'Amazon
to the Caribbean' unearths their lifestyle in no simple way, reviving
stunning cultural artifacts including their seat of power.

To this day the Wai Wai still make exquisite craftwork and the
collection at Horniman showcases exquisite headdresses made from
the heads and feathers of parrots.
Kenyan born -Dr. Hassan Arero, the first black curator to be
appointed by a British museum,-is the Head of Anthropology at
He lived deep in the Guyana jungle with. the Wai Wai. in Masa
village with the 200 or so inhabitants. He recalled eating turtle meat
and hunting fish on the Essequibo River with members of the tribe.
His work takes a unique look at the cultural connections be-
tween the people of the north Amazon; and the shaping of Carib-
bean identity.
Arero brings together stunning ethnographic and archaeological
finds, including contemporary works of art by renowned artists
Aubrey Williams and Oswald Hussain.

"From an early age I have been fascinated by world cultures
and how they adapt to change," he told a south London newspa-
According to Arero, the evolution of cultural identity on both.a
global and local scale is an area of interest to him and this has mani-
fested itself in the exhibition exploring Amerindian heritage and the
shaping of Caribbean culture.
The inspiration for Dr. Arero's visit to this country was the
Horniman Museum's collection of more than 300 Amerindian arti-
facts, acquired during the 1950s and 60s.
He wanted to find out if there were ways of using the ethno-
graphic, archaeological and contemporary artifacts in the Homiman
collection to tell a wider story of the cultural links between Carib-
bean and mainland South America
Arero's focus was the fact that being the only English-speaking
country in South America, Guyana represents a point of confluence
between the Caribbean and South American cultures.
Goods acquired for the exhibition by Dr Arero from the
Wai Wai include practical and decorative items such as a cas-
sava grater, a beautiful beaded apron, ceremonial belts, blow
pipes, colourful feather headdresses, jewellery, hair combs and
a showcase of decorated dance clubs used in Amerindian ritu-
als and celebrations.
The significance of the jaguar as a mythical and symbolic ani-
mal in Amerindian culture is also revealed with a jaguar skin belt -
or kamarapicho and necklace made of the animal's teeth, which
was once worn by community chiefs during important ceremonies.

One part of the exhibition is the Wai Wai combs, also called
Wai-a-macasi. The Wai Wai combs are renowned for being highly
ornamental and expertly crafted pieces of art and even though the
combs are, normally made out of various materials, the traditional
material will constitute two thin bones; one at the top and the other
one in the middle.
According to Arero, the bones are obtained either from mon-
keys or other animals found in the Wai Wai environment; the bones
in these combs came from a bird known as fishka.
The bones are separated by beautiful woven patterns (in
the forms of zigzags or anaconda), below that will be the teeth
of the comb. The teeth of the comb could be made from differ-
ent types of materials ranging from animal bones to wood from
the branches of a tree locally known as Com-o-cahu or Quana
The two bone frameworks are decorated with the insertion of
little feather tassels. These particular combs are cruder than the ear-
lier Wai Wai combs in the Horniman collection. This could be at-
tributed to the fact that these combs are now made for tourist con-
sumption. It is highly likely that the knowledge of making such

traditional items of craft is diminishing due to modern influences
and changes.
The combs were made in Cashew Island, New River Area,
Southern Guyana. They were made by men but used by all sexes
and age groups.
The opening of the exhibition was complemented .with insight-
ful evening lectures with special guests including Professor Michael
Gilkes who recently produced 'Music of El Dorado' portraying a
fascinating look at Guyanese culture through the eyes of the people
,'who live in the rainforest.
The film was produced following a visit to Guyana in March
2002 by Christopher Laird of Banyan working with filmmaker and
cultural activist Gilkes.
Gilkes took to Masakeari Guyanese concert pianist and music
professor, Ray Luck, and piano technician Remington Ally to join
the Wai Wai's in concert.
A gentle people, the Wai Wais are traditional hunter-gath-
erers, who live simply and contentedly, using the natural re-
sources around them and speaking their own language, al-
though many now learn English.

Dancing into big time

business of leather footwear

By Stacey Bess

IN GUYANA, we produce tasteful leather shoes
from the hides of some of our mammals and rep-
For one of our first class leather shoe producers, his dancing
steps bopped him into-the shoe manufacturing business in Guyana
big time!
More than 25 years ago a young, energetic Michael Carrington
began to flow in one of his passions dance. In the process, he
ignited his career in the manufacture of shoes utilising Guyana's
"I was a dancer; as a matter of fact, I'm still a dancer," he told
the Sunday Chronicle a few weeks ago. As a member of Bryan
'Straighty' Nobrega's Dance School, Michael met Bryan's brother
Charles, who was on the cutting edge of shoe making. Charles of-
fered Michael a job.
Michael accepted the offer, starting out as a cutter of shoe soles.
His boss, Charles Nobrega, had contracts with large companies such
as Bata during the 1980s when Guyana was pushing its self-suffi-
ciency ideology and there was nearly an absence of imported foot-
"We used to make different things. I remember a lot of
strap-up cord dry slippers and wooden clogs," Michael recalled.
Michael said that after six months on the job, Charles closed
his business and now resides in Canada.
Michael had developed such a love for shoe making that he
decided to continue the business on his own. He advanced by trial

and error as he built relationships with other shoe manufacturers,
such as the popular Mr. Foreman of Bentick Street, South
Cummingsburg, Georgetown.
When Mr. Foreman died, Michael continued production trad-
ing under the name Foreman's Electrical Shoe Shop. That was 25
years ago. Today, he is regarded as a champion in shoe manufactur-
ing not only by consumers, but also by colleagues in the leather
shoe manufacturing industry.
Michael Carrington has achieved the commendation of having
the dexterity to create anything from leather bags, briefcases, san-
dals, boots, shoes.
While on shoe trends rounds, the Sunday Chronicle dropped in
at Foreman's Electrical Shoe Shop to chat with Michael about shoes
that he manufactures.
He said that aside from the grounding that he received from
Charles Nobrega, he schooled himself in shoe designing and manu-
Michael conjures up designs in his mind which are trans-
ferred to his sketch pad, and then begin to take shape on his
Last (a mould that gives shoes its shape).
When we visited the shop, he was in the middle of completing
*a pair of men's leather shoes in keeping with his custom-made fo-
cus of his shoe line called 'Tuff Wear'.
Michael believes that the tough-nature of Guyana's vegetable
tanned leather is ideal for producing high-class, long-lasting shoes.
Locals are upping their purchase of locally manufactured leather
shoes on account of their durability.
Michael is in the process of crossing major financial

shoes for children.
This shoe producer said that his vision encompasses the train-
ing of persons in various aspects of shoe assembly thereby jump-
starting a vibrant shoe manufacturing cottage industry, which will
provide employment.
"I've trained people who are now abroad and doing well
in places like England and all we need here are training in the
skills, the raw materials and the financial backing," Michael
He estimates that such a shoe manufacturing programme
in Guyana, which can make the country a major shoe sup-
plier at home and abroad, needs an investment of G$20M to
take off. Thus, he is encouraging financial institutions to con-
sider non-collateral pre-requisites for the granting of loans
for such purposes.
Another top leather shoe manufacturer in Guyana, Mr. Roy
Cummings, has deeper concerns over the manufacturing of shoes
Mr. Cummings has a sizable acclaim to overseas markets with
his 'Craft Plus' line.
Shoe designs, trends and his expertise in the business were pale
subjects for Mr. Cummings. He just wanted to address the strength-

The skins of Guyana's alligator, anaconda, sheep, goat, cow and

Mr. Cummings told the Sunday Chronicle on our visit

equately consumed by local buyers, hence his reliance on

Cu(iiniJings deems duties and taxes extracted from most shoe im-

\\ hat exacerbates things, he said, is the inconsistent marketing

John Collane :


n 'r~

by Terence Roberts

WHY should we continue to
care about listening to such
classic and outstanding jazz
artists of the 40's, 50's, 60's
such as Charlie Parker,
Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis,
John Coltrane, StanGetz,
Dexter Gordon, Bill Evans,
Thelonious Monk, Horace
Silver, Chet Baker, Charles
Lloyd, Gerry Mulligan,
Stanley Turrentine, Joe
Farrell, Hubert Laws, Herbie
Mann, Yussef Lateef, Ahmad
Jamal, Baden Powell, Joe
Henderson, Sonny Rollins,
Roy Eldridge, Anita O'Day,
Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah
Vaughan, June Christy, Mel
Torme, Tony Bennett, Anto-
nio Carlos Jobim, Toto
Rodriguez, Perz Prado, etc.
One endless reason is that
these jazz artists produced mu-
sic which did not succumb to
anger, despair, or 'sell its soul
to the devil'. Yet, their lives
were far from easy, or conven-
tional, especially in face of the
far tougher times back then,
than today in the USA. John
Coltrane is one example of such
a musician always worthy o four
listening attention. The human
and artistic legacy of Coltrane is

even more fertile and exemplary
if we look at it from a remote
Guyanese perspective. Within
that perspective, the first ben-
efit Coltrane offers is to the in-
tellectual and civilised develop-
ment of black people across the
globe wh6 felt their self-esteem
damaged or influenced by his-
torical pains like slavery, broken
family structure, poverty, etc.
For such people, good ex-
amples of.themselves to look
up to, from anywhere, are im-
portant. Afro-Guyanese cannot
limit their.interest simply to an-
cient and familiar black achieve-
ments at home, in the Caribbean,
or in Africa, but extend it fur-
ther into the great black achieve-
ments in Latin America and
North America. Coltrane's sec-
ond benefit is to anyone, any-
where, who is simply interested
in profoundly good art, since
Coltrane's music is not ad-
dressed to black people as a
separate entity, but to all
people. Coltrane's third benefit
comes from the deep emotional
beauty, strength and spirituality
of his music.
Coltrane's moral and cre-
ative lessons began at home, as
a child, an extremely important

example for couples who may
produce children without much
thought about how they will be
provided for, educated, etc.,
these being necessities if not
carefully planned before birth
can lead to-serious problems for
such children, as well as the so-
cieties and nations they may live
in. Coltrane's father was a
humble musician not famous,
not wealthy, but he taught his
son the basics of music, and
how to play the clarinet and
saxophone. By age 19, in 1945,
Coltrane spent one year in a US
Navy Brass Band, from there he
gained experience playing in
many small bands. However,
during that time, he read pro-
fusely, listened to all sorts of
music from the world, and de-
veloped a keen interest in mod-
em art, i.e. painting, sculpture,
drawing etc.
In 1955, Coltrane joined
the Miles Davis Quintet in
New York. It was a short-
lived beginning of his career
as a jazz artist. Coltrane be-
came a victim of the trendy
jazz musician's lifestyle in
New York, succumbing to al-
coholism and drug addiction.
Davis had launched

Coltrane's fame with his own
brilliantly original album
'Kind of Blue', but Davis
could not tolerate Coltrane's
endless drug addiction habits
and fired him from his band.
It was the right thing to do,
and Coltrane knew it.
Coltrane went home to his
quiet hometown of Philadel-
phia, faced himself, and
kicked his drug habit. He also
had a deep spiritual awaken-
ing. When Coltrane returned
to New York city, first joining
the great pianist Thelonious
Monk's band, then forming
his own quartet, it was the
beginning of one of the
greatest legends in modern
jazz. Indeed, music itself
would never be the same
Coltrane's wide knowledge
of music led to his creation of
'modaP jazz. The 'modal mode,
found in European music since
the 1600's, became a new
method for jazz to progress into
improvised tones, using chord
progressions. It provided free-
dom within structure, giving
black jazz musicians in particu-

lar a chance to build their indi-
vidual creativity, and personal-
ity, on stage. From this innova-
tive freedom introduced by
Coltrane, many black jazz art-
ists later came to win respect
and make a living playing pro-
gressive modem jazz.
Later, in the 1960's,
Coltrane's friend, the black
poet/critic Leroi Jones (Amiri

Baraka) showered praise on
Coltrane's white recording
manager, Bob Thiele of
Impulse Records, for his
highly sympathetic response
and recognition of Coltrane's
bold genius. Jones said he
praised Thiele because he

Welcome to our English Language
columns. Whenever you are studying, use
lots of sources of ideas and information.
This keeps your interest aroused. Love

Drafting: Writing a Paragraph

A paragraph is a group of related sentences.
They all work together to develop one maih idea
stated in a topic or main idea sentence.
Paragraphs should be drafted. In -the draft-
ing stage of writing you need to write own
ideas in sentences and paragraphs.
The topic sentence: In many paragraphs the
main idea is stated in a topic sentence. The
topic sentence can come at the beginning of a
paragraph. Sometimes, though, the topic sen-
tence comes at the end or in the middle.' Wher-
ever it comes, it should tell two things: hat your
topic is and what your paragraph will say about
it. You, however, are advised at this stage to
have the topic sentence at the beginning of your

Narrating a Personal Experience

Let us write about a personal experience today.
Be in the habit of writing your personal experi-
ences. It helps you keep in touch with impor-
tant events of your life and allows you to really
know what they mean to you.

How it is done: You have to use the first person
pronoun and chronological order in relating an
event in this kind of writing. [Chronological or-
der means order according to sequence of
time.] You need to know also that personal ex-
perience writings tell of real-life stories.
After you have chosen an experience to write
about, you need to use a pre-writing strategy.
Remember the plan. we spoke about a few
weeks back? Well, write the ideas in phrases
and sentences. Complete your pre-writing jot-
tings by saying what the experience meant to

Here is an experience of a young person. Read
it to get an insight into what personal experi-
ence writing is all about.

"Mimi, wake up, You're; going to be late for
school," my mom's voice cut through my dream
.. I got slowly out of bed, dazed and disori-
ented. For a few moments, I didn't even know
where I was. Then 1 remembered, and my
dreams and memoriesicame flooding back. I
remembered that long journey and the day af-
ter my cousin's death when we finally found land.
We'd landed on a Malaysian island and stayed
for sixteen months before being sponsored by
St. Mary's Church in Ohio. The Lord had an-
swered all our prayers!

Six years have passed, but I still occasion-
ally have dreams about; my long journey to
America. I feel so lucky and grateful that we
found land and a new life in America. I learned
that life should be appreciated and loved.
Above all, I learned neverito give up hope.
Van Ngo, Thomas Jefferson High School

We know that aqlI of you cannot write like this as
yet, however, it is here for you to see just where
good efforts in writing can!take you.

if you read again carefullyiyou'li see that a strat-
egy is used where the writer provides informa-
tion she had deliberately omitted when the nar-
ration began. You, too, can try this strategy.
She has also stated in the end that the experi-
ence has more than one meaning for her. The
meanings are then provided.

Here are the guidelines for personal experience
writing listed below:

1. In your pre-writing, list the events chronologi-
cally the qrder in which them happened.

2. Maintain a first person point of view. In other
words tell the experience using the first person
'pronoun "I -.

3. Make your narrative live by including specific
facts and details.

4. Use your language well. Make use of vivid
adjectives, also precise verbs and adverbs, and
concrete nouns. This helps your reader share
your excitement, fear or sorrow.

5. Build a conclusion' that tells about your
thoughts and feelings about your experience.
Then tell what it means to you.

Last week you had to answer questions on
decimals. Here is a reminder to those who
need reminding about the operations every
now and then.
A fraction (a vulgar fraction) can be converted
into a decimal.
A fraction names a decimal; and likewise, a
decimal names a fraction.
Example: 7/10 = 0.7;
8/100 = 0.08
7/10 is called seven tenths, and 8/100 is called
eight hundredths. Ordinarily, 0.7 is called zero
point seven and 0.08 is called zero point
nought eight.
The fraction 7/10 says seven parts out often
parts, and 8/100 says eight parts out of one
hundred parts.
Let us remind you how to convert fractions to
percentages. We'll write the fraction 19/100
as a percentage.
19 = 19 X499 =19%
100 4-90 1
To convert a fraction into a parentage, we mul-
tiply it by 100. Percent is written % which is
its symbol.
Look further.

7/10 expressed as a percent is 70%.
Note: When comparing fractions, it is often
very convenient to express them with a de-
nominator of a hundred.
Thus:%Y =50/100
4/5 =80/100
Fractions with.a denominator of 100 are called
Thus: 2 = 50/100 = 50%
4/5 = 80/100 = 80%
There is an easy way to convert fraction to a
4/5 as a percentage is:
= 4/5 X 100%
= (4 x 4092)% = 80%
(5& 1 )
7/15=7 X 100%
= (7 X 4002)%
(45 1 )
= 146% = 46.7%
Convert the following fractions into per-
1) 7/10; 2.4/5
3.9/25; 4) 31/50
5) 19/20; 6) 18/75
7) 35/80; 8) 64/192

Let's do #6 together.
18 as a percentage is
= 18 X 100)%
75 1
= (486 X 4O4 )%
75 1
= 24/0"
Decimals may be converted into percentages
by using the same rule above. Thus:
0.7 = 7/10
=7 X100%
= (7 X 40+1)%
= 706/o
[You can try to omit the middle step if you
understand the procedure well. You just have
to multiply 0.7 by 100]
Thus: 0.7 = 0.7 X 100%
0.07 =0.07 X 100% =7%

0.623= 623
= (623 X 491)% = 8623%
4000 10
= 62.3;o%

Convert the following decimal numbers
into percentages:
1) 0.7; 2) 0.63
3) 0.814; 4) 0.07
5) 0.063 6) 0.05

by Petamber Persaud
IN AND out of uniform, John
Campbell was a prolific and
versatile writer. And to boot,
he was also humble, always
acknowledging his sources of
help and inspiration; thank-
ing his mother, Millicent, his
wife, Violet, his children, his
schoolmate, Donald Cariba,
and his research mentor, Joel
Benjamin. A writer needs all
the help he or she can get in

order to produce good litera-
ture and to get it published;
substantiating the thought
that writing is ten per cent
inspiration and ninety per
cent perspiration!
Campbell's inspiration to
write came from many other
sources across the length and
breadth of Guyana; from his
formative years in the tiny ward
of Freeburg to offering service
and protection on the sprawling
Corentyne Coast to the misty

fender of the island of Ankoko
in the Essequibo.
John Campbell published
eight books of poems. In one
collection, 'Our Own Poems',
he catered for the taste of chil-
dren. He also published a study
on obeah, a collection of famous
murder stories and an anthology
which comprised poems, short
stories and a play. He has to his
name a collection of five one-act
plays which included 'Come
Back to Melda', 'Dhanwattie',
'No Way',' Cuffy. the Brazen'
and 'Marriage for Convenience'.
This collection of plays placed
him in a special group of
Guyanese playwrights to have
published more than one play
in book form including N. E.
Cameron, Sheik Sadeek and
Paloma Mohamed. 'Writers in
Uniform' which he prepared for
Carifesta '72 may be one of a
kind in our history, encompass-
ing three genres of writing -
poetry, short story and play.
His magnum opus, 'History of
Policing', in Guyana was pub-
lished in 1987.
John Campbell was born on
October 19, 1925. He was edu-
cated at Freeburg Anglican,

em Education before majoring

from one discipline to another the
story of his life. He went on to
carve a distinguished military career
moving from Constable to Assis-
tant Commissioner; serving as Reg-
istry Supervisor, Investigator, Inter-
rogator, Researcher and Public Re-
lations Officer. He was stationed as
Sub-divisional Officer on the
Corentyne Coast and Division
Commander in Linden.
In 1980, he retired, perhaps
to devote more time to his writ-
ing, but this was not to be.A mat-
ter of our sovereign integrity
brought him out of retirement
a year later to head the Special
Constabulary investigating
Venezuela's encroachment of
Although he was born
leader, his greatest strength
manifested itself in the fact that
he was a consummate team
player. Those qualities, plus his
respect for the printed word,
kept thrusting him into the lime-
light. He edited the Police
Magazine from 1968 to 1975
and the Police Copper Newspa-
per on two separate occasions,
1972 to 1975 and 1981 to 1985.
He was on the Film Censor
Board when cinema was in full
swing. He served as member on

the National History and Arts
Council, a member of Guyana
Writers Group and president of
Christ Church Youth Move-
ment. His play, 'Come back to
Melda', was directed by Doris
Harper-Wills and produced by
the Christ Church Drama
That same play brought him
regional recognition when it won
an award from the University of
the West Indies in 1957. In
1964, he copped the second
prize in the National
Playwriting Competition with,
'Dhanwattie'. In 1972, he won
the first prize for composing
the theme song for the Police
Association with 'Advance To-
gether'. In the 1981 issue of
The Chronicle Christmas An-
nual (now The Guyana Annual),
he gained a second place with
his poem, 'Border Blues', while
three other pieces were given
honourable mention.

Quite a few persons remem-
ber him only as 'the painter' -
writing somehow features way
down in the order of apprecia-
tion, far behind the visual arts
and the performing arts in
which singing seems to be al-
ways out front.
Campbell's painting,
'Crosby Office', came third in
the Ghandi Memorial Art Com-
petition and another piece en-
titled, 'She', was the outstand-
ing piece in the 1966 National
Visual Arts Exhibition.
For three consecutive years,
1980 to 1982, he won the Com-
rade Mashramani (male) Competi-
tion. John Campbell was a striking
man in many aspects of life.
He stood out on the stage
whether he was acting as
'Charlie' in "Moon on the Rain-
bow Shawl' or as 'Chief' in Fall
of a Chief'.
John Campbell fell from
the stage of life somewhere
in March 1989.

Guyana's number one entry, X2's Adrian Dutchin and
Jomo Primo, didn't make the cut for the top 2005 Caribbean
Star Search title, but they walked away with the second prize
and a weekend for two at the Maho Hotel in St Maarten.
They scored 407 out of a possible 500, 11 points behind
champion Ouida Nisbelt, the British Virgin Islands represen-
But boy, did Adrian and Jomo enjoy themselves two
Saturday nights ago at the Russell Fort James in Antigual
They gave an energetic performance of their latest track,
'Over You', and won over the crowd long before the end
of their four-minute routine.

Victory would have been the icing on the cake, but for
Adrian, the exposure and experience was worth the trip to
the regatta island.
it was a very sweet experience. I loved it. it was great. I
loved the entire show. I was very proud of the Caribbean,"
he shared.
The young Guyanese made clear very early in the inter-
view that he has no regrets because he represented Guyana
to the best of his ability.
"I know we are all winners and the crowd oed the show.
X2 did everything the (judges) wanted- I don't know what
more they wanted, but Im a very omlerit pson and I wish the
(winner) all the best (because) she's a niue pecasun" he said.
Adrian proudly said he was extremely happy with the
duo's performance.
"The contest was'very stiff and very challenging." But that
was no surprise to him, after all, only 12 fikis were cho-
sen from more than 2,000 tapes.
The young songwriter however coulnht help compar-
ing their lively show to that of the champion's.
"She's not a very good stage perfonmer' he said, but
promptly added, "I thought the gid cou[d sing. She really
can (and); I love her voice."
Adrian also congratulated 'Undaground" of SL Kits and
St. Martin's Jermaine Cameron who placed third and fourth,
So, what's next for X2, I asked?
"The single that was entered, we want to release it (and)
make the video," he said, adding that the group is also work-
ing on an album which will be released soon.
"We are really doing big things and the best is yet
to come. I thank all the GT people who hau always been
behind X2. I thank the Kross KoloFr kIew, my family and
most of all I thank God for everwhhi"'
The next Guyanese group that was short-isted as final-
ists in the competition, duo Megan leira and Delroy Dash
made a lasting impression with their pefomnance, although
they did not place in the top four.
Caribbean Star Search was opened to singers living in
all Caribbean Star Airline destinations. It was launched three
years ago to give upcoming artists regional and international
exposure in order to succeed in the highly competitive mu-
sic industry. Guyana was represented at the event for the
first time this year.
The winners prizes include a professional recording
of a first-class music video and al expense paid trip to
New York to appear on a BET show.

HERE WAS to have been a snake, but wily
creature that he is, he managed to slither out
at the last moment of what turned out to be
a very closely-contested event, leaving the monkey,
the parrot, the spectacled caiman, the water turtle,
and a pair of earthworms to carry on without him.
But, in the end, it was the dogs that held sway, carting off six of
the 12 top prizes at the Novelty Pet Show and.Fair two Saturdays
ago on the lawns of the former 'Red House', on High Street,
Kingston, the highlight of which was a competition among the ani-
mals to see which.was the 'Best Dressed', 'Most Exotic'; 'Most
Unusual'; and had the 'Best Trick'.
Carting off the overall prize, however, was 'Peto' the monkey -
who placed first, second, and third respectively in the 'Most Un-
usual', 'Most Exotic' and 'Best Trick' legs of the contest.
According to Maureen Paul, Executive Director of the Tourism
and Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG), which hosted the
event, it wis the first time in years that something of this nature
was being done in Guyana. Besides, on the last occasion, which she
understands was some 15 years ago, the event was confined solely
to dogs.
Paul, who was the Assistant Director of Tourism within the Min-
istry of Tourism, Industry and Commerce before taking up her present
position with THAG, said that while the event was primarily a
fundraiser, it was also intended to provide the public. with quality
entertainment that was not just unique but well suited as well to the
entire family.
"This more or less came about because ...being in the tourism
industry and knowing that entertainment is another very important
aspect 9f the tourism product ...of hearing ever so.often, people
bemoaning the fact that there is nothing much to do here in Guyana
....that there is not much quality entertainment for family," she said.'
Another determining factor, she said, was the notion thaif-
Guyanese now seem to be attaching quite a lot of importance to the,
care and maintenance of their pets, as evidenced in the proliferation,
, of pet supply stores in the city alone, and the fact that they no-
only stock the regular dog, rabbit and fish foods, but clothing and
shampoo among other toiletries one usually associated with a hu-'
man being.
"So, it's just THAG's way of responding to the need of
Guyanese in terms of having a quality entertainment industry, and
letting people know that tourism is not just about resorts... and
hotels... and restaurants; that entertainment, quality ones at that, is
very much a part of the tourism industry."
Seven of the nine pet supply shops with which THAG is familiar,
she said, were represented that afternoon at the show, among them
The Outdoor Store and Pet Shop located on Church Street; Guyana
Livestock and Pet Supplies, which operates from King Street and
North Road; and The Ark Pets which is located on Fourth Street,
Alberttown. Present also was the
Guyana Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA).
-The remaining stalls, which
numbered about five and included
Maggie's, famed for its scrump-
tious pastries, Paul said were the
kind of exhibits one usually as-
sociates with a fair and were
included so as to add
a bit of
flavour to

S T. PETER'S Church was originally built on
December 9, 1827. It was, however, replaced by
the present brick structure on St. Peter's Day,
June 29, 1855. Before the erection of the first Church,
divine services were held under a clump of bamboo.

On November 25, 1826, as
recorded by a pencil minute on
a sheet of foolscap on the Ves-
try Book of the parish, a meet-
ing was held in the house of
Captain Thierens of plantation
Vissilvalligheid, Leguan. At this
meeting, a. decision was taken
that a permanent church and
parsonage should be con-
structed for parishioners. In the
circumstance, a site on the front
lands of Plantation Enterprise,
where the church is still func-

tioning today, .was selected.
On May 5, 1827, the Rev.
John Tucker, who had been a.
reader in Trinidad, was insti-
tuted to the parish (comprising
Leguan and Hogg Island). The
population of the two islands at
that time comprised 341 free
and 6,159 enslaved Africans.
According .to the records,-
this church, which would accom-
modate some 500 parishioners,
was expected to be completed
in about six weeks, at a cost of

The land for church and
parsonage was acquired in a
rather unusual manner; by a
warrant issued by the
Governor, Sir Benjamin
D'Urban on June 12, 1827
authorisingg and requiring
in his Majesty's name, John
Theirens and Edward G.
Boughton, members of, the
Vestry for the Parish of St.
Peter's, forthwith to enter
upon and take possession of
the said piece of land" and to
"give notice thereof to the
proprietor of the said property
and offer him a fair
compensation", to be decided
.by two appraisers and by an
umpire chosen by lot.

In September 1827, Mr.
John Campbell, representing the
proprietors John Campbell, Se-
nior and Co. of Glasgow, agreed
to sell six acres of the land in
question. The only further dif-
ficulty. was the removal of a
house built by Mr. Alexander
McRae, Attorney of Plantation
Enterprise, on the land "for the
reception of that most offensive
disease yaws".
With the problems of the
acquisition of the land solved,
the Court of Policy granted
5,000 guilders towards the con-
struction of the Church which
was thus opened for service on
December 9, 1827
In 1829, Dr. Boughton, Dr.
Bolton, Mr. Archer and Mr.
Isaac were members of the Ves-
try succeeded in having the
'Yaws house removed after

tracted an illness and died in
The Governor continued to
show much interest in the pur-
chase of the land, which was to
be provided out of "either the
King's Chest or the Colonial
Chest". Nine years later, on Au-
gust 8, 1836, the transport for
the land of St. Peter's Church
was passed and the sum of 300
guilders per acre was paid by
the Governor, together with
4,000 guilders for repairs and
350 guilders for the Sexton.
At this time much enthu-
siasm was displayed in edu-
cation and in 1837 and 1838
two grants of 3,042 guilders
each were made by the Colo-
nial Treasury for the tutoring
of the youth of the parish, no
doubt a part of the parlia-
mentary grant-in-aid, in ex-
penditure of which Sir

George Grey showed so much
interest on behalf of the

The cost of maintaining
the first church proved to be
astronomical and the parish-.
ioners appealed to have a
permanent building erected.
This may well explain the
choice of brick. Under the
ministry of Rev. F. J. Wyatt,
that affirmative plans for the
erection of the present archi-
tectural masterpiece bore
fruit. The foundation stone
was laid on August 1,.1853 by
Lieutenant-Governor Walker
who wrote the Bishop then in
England, informing him of
the proceedings, and praising
Mr. Wyatt.
The new church was
honoured by an illustrated ar-
ticle in the 'Illustrated London
News' of 17 November 1855
which noted that "St. Peter's
was erected at an expense of

IN 1975. three men who attacked and robbed
Oswald Ramsammy of jeweller),. a wrist-watch
and cash were running away from the scene when
their suspicious behaviour landed them in the arms of

the cops.
The men, Prince Adams,
Eon Poole and Lindon Lyte
were still on the Bench at the
Enquiries Office, Brickdam Po-
lice Station under interrogation,
when the victim Ramsammy
turned up to report the robbery
and spotted the alleged culprits.
Investigations that followed
led to the three men being
charged with robbery with ag-
But at the jury trial, Lyte
pleaded guilty to the crime while
his companions pleaded not
The trial of the other two
men continued with Lyte still
occupying his position in the
The resulting effect was
that the other two accused -
Adams and Poole were con-
victed and sentenced along with
They appealed their convic-
tions and sentences and con-
tended among other things, that
the trial judge had failed to cau-
tion the jury that the guilty plea
of Lyte was not evidence against
the other accused.
At the hearing of the appeal,
Poole took objection to the
manner in which he was identi-
fied by Ramsammy. The appel-
lant contended that he was sit-
ting on the bench with the other
accused, when Ramsammy
pointed him out.
The Guyana Court of Ap-
peal constituted by Chancellor
Haynes and Justices of Appeal
Crane and Luckhoo dismissed

the appeal in respect to Adams,
but allowed the appeal in rela-
tion to Eon Poole.
Justice Luckhoo, who deliv-
ered the judgment, observed that
the two appellants along with
Lyte were charged jointly with
the offence of robbery with ag-
gravation contrary to section
222 (b) of the Criminal Law Of-
fences Act, Chapter 8:01 in that
they on June 11, 1974, together
robbed Oswald Ramsammy of
one wrist-watch, one gold ring,
and $25.00 in cash.
At the Demerara Assizes in

and Adams and Poole, not
The trial proceeded with
Lyte remaining with the two ap-
pellants in the dock. All three
were sentenced at the conclusion
of the trial.
Ramsammy's evidence was
that when he was leaving the
urinal in the Strand de Luxe
Cinema at about 2.30 pm on
June 11, 1974, he saw the three
accused. Poole passed him, and
from behind, held him around
the neck with his left hand and
at the same time called out to
Adams and Lyte to "Run him
Lyte came up with a knife,
held it in front of him and said:
"Don't holler." Ramsammy said
he became afraid. Lyte pulled
off his wrist-watch, pushed his
hand inside his trousers and took
out $25. Adams took off his
ring. They pushed him down
and went away.

According to Justice
Luckhoo, Ramsammy reported
this incident to the manager of
the cinema and about 2.55 pm,
that is about 25 minutes later.
He then went to the Brickdam
Police Station where he said he
recognized his assailants and-
pointed out the three accused to
the police as the persons who
had robbed him.
The Police showed him a
watch and a ring both of which
he identified as the articles sto-
len from him. He further said in
evidence that the attack on him
in the cinema lasted for about
two minutes.
Police Constable Edwards
testified that he and PC
Lildharie were on mobile patrol
duty on June 11, 1974, and ob-
served the three accused running
and looking.back at about 2.45
pm. He became suspicious and
stopped and searched them. He
found a wrist-watch on Lyte.
He arrested and took them to
the Brickdam Police Station
where Poole was searched and
$10.04 found on him. He also
searched Adams and found in his
pocket a gold ring with the ini-
tials 'O.R.' Both the watch and
the ring were claimed by
Ramsammy as his property
when he went to the station at
about 3 pm. P.C. Lildharie was
put up for cross-examination
and testified that the three ac-
cused were arrested in Camp
Street at 2.45 pm.
Poole gave evidence on oath.
He denied that he had robbed
Ramsammy and his defence was
an alibi. He said he was held up
by PC Edwards in John Street
on approaching Bent Street and
denied he was arrested in Camp
Street along with Lyte and

He also said that the sum of
$20.04 found on him was
claimed his. A d a m s
made a statement from the dock
denying the story told by
Ramsammy and stated that he
was not arrested in Camp Street
along with the other accused. He
said he was stopped by the Po-
lice in Bent Street and taken to
Brickdam Police Station. He de-
nied that he was searched and
also denied that the gold ring
claimed by Ramsammy was
found on him. His defence was
an alibi.
The Justice of Appeal
added: "We should not lose sight
of the fact, that although all
three accused were on a joint
charge, the crime charged was

one in which each accused was
in effect charged with having
himself robbed Ramsammy.


"No accused could have
been found guilty unless the evi-
dence relating exclusively to
that particular accused showed
him to be guilty.
"To put it another way,
each accused was to be adjudged
guilty only in so far as the evi-
dence relating solely to him es-
tablished his guilt.
"In the circumstances of
this case, the danger of the jury
using the guilty plea of Lyte as

evidence against the appellants,
or construing it in a manner
prejudicial to them, was indeed
grave, and only a caution or di-
rection to them by the trial
judge, that they must not use
Lyte's plea of guilty as evidence
against either of the appellants
could have afforded a proper
safeguard against the danger.
Unfortunately, that caution was
not given.
"We have applied the
proviso insofar as Adams'
appeal is concerned as there
was against him the very
damning evidence of having

Ramsammy's ring, so shortly

after the robbery. With respect to Poole the position is different. Nothing found on him was
identified as belonging to Ramsammy. The sum of $10.04 found on him was claimed by him as
his. It is true that Ramsammy identified him some 25 minutes after the incident as being one
of the three persons who robbed him, but we are not altogether happy oser the manner in
which he was identified. He was placed with the two other accused in the police station to be
seated together on a bench, and as Ramsammy entered the station he saw them all together
and identified them.
"Having regard to the fact that the robbery incident took place onl\ a few minutes before, we feel
that the police ought to have anticipated the likelihood of Os ild Ramsammny' calling at the Bnckdani

"Accordingly we think that whenever the police are cognizant of a crime or ha e reasonable cause

necessary to hold an identification parade, particular care should be taken not to interrogate suspect
in the station's reception room where anyone entering could see them and the exhibits which according
to Poole in this case, were lying openly on a table.
"Interrogation ought never to take place in public view, particularly % hen in circumstances similar
to the present, an identification parade was the only proper means of securing the accused a fair trial.

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today.
Today we'll look at Disposal of Refuse
{Waste, rubbish, garbage, etc}

Biodegradable: things that will decay over a
period of time e.g. fruits, paper, and cotton.

Non-biodegradable: things will never decay
e.g. plastics, glass and metals.

Waste must be disposed of

Everyone dumps "waste" because it is useless
or its usefulness no longer exists. Waste is
unsightly to look at and needs to be disposed
of, Leaving waste or rubbish unattended may
result into a number of things that may be
harmful to humans. It may become the breed-
ing place for cockroaches, rats, houseflies and
other creatures. Also resulting from this, the
pests which breads {live} in the waste contrib-
utes to the spreading of harmful disease e.g.
yellow fever, typhoid, etc.

Therefore it is necessary for us to dispose of
refuse carefully and in a respectable manner,
not affecting or infecting anyone.

Grouping of refuse can be done.

They are different kinds of waste. Some waste
matter is found at home. This waste is usually
collected in bins or garbage bags. In schools

and offices and on the streets you can see
pieces of furniture, paper, and other things that
may be disposed of such as, pens, pencils
and other writing material. This waste is
usually called litter. Litter may be collected in
waste paper boxes or baskets. Garbage and
litter are domestic waste.

.,, -, -,' = --.

The waste materials from the factories are
called industrial waste. Can you name some
industrial.waste that comes from the factories?
Some business places dump empty crates,
empty plastic bottles and cans. This is a
mixture of refuse which is difficult to describe.

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to this Social Studies input. Always try to
relate whatever you are learning to your everyday
life. It pays dividends. Keep your memory vivid
and alive with proper learning Love you.

Sunday Chronicle. October 30. 2005

Remember that:
a) Good descriptive writing depends upon the
effective use of details, and the organization of
those details into meaningful patterns.
b) One natural way to arrange description is to
arrange details in spatial order that is, left to
right, front to back, near to far, clockwise, or
c) Description can be improved by the use of
prepositional phrases to establish spatial rela-
tionships between objects.

Order of Details
Details, like unconnected ideas and pieces of
information, have to be put in a meaningful and
distinct order for effective paragraphing. Get
your topic viewed. Think about the main ideas
you have for the writing, and then sort out which
details can be used to support which idea.

Paragraphs can be ordered in terms of space
(called spatial order). Other kinds are: chrono-
logical, importance, cause and effect, and com-
pare and contrast.

Spatial order works well for descriptive writing.
Chronological order works well to narrate.
Chronological order works effectively to explain
how things are done in time.
Importance order fits in well for persuasion, with
the strongest argument at the end.,
Cause and effect order is good to use for con-
viction followed by explanation.
Compare and contrast is used to explain a new
and maybe unfamiliar idea and contrast it with
a familiar one

A good look at compositions and tell yourself
what order is in each paragraph.. Take note of
your strengths and weaknesses for improve-

Some writers are skillful this way. They arrange
their details in order of importance from the
least important to the most important. This lets
them present.the description built to a climax,
leaving'the strongest image for the end.

Here is an example of a passage with details ar-
ranged according to importance. It really does
make a lasting impression. Try this famous

When I think of the hometown of my youth, all
that I seem to remember is dust the brown,
crumbly dust of late summer arid, sterile dust
that gets into the eyes and makes them water,
gets into the throat and between the toes of bare
brown feet. I don't know why I should only re-
,member the dust. Surely there must have been
lush green lawns and.paved streets ubder leafy
.shade trees somewhere in town;, but memory is
an abstract painting it does not present things
as they are, but rather as they feel. And so,
when I think of that time and that place, I remem-
ber only the dry September of the dirt roads and
grassless yards of the shanty-town where I lived.

Subject and Verb Agreement
Reminder: Do not be confused by a predicate
nominative that is different in number from the
subject. Only the subject affects the number of
the linking verb.

Look at the following sentences to understand
what we are talking about.

The last course was banana slices with vanilla.
ice-cream. [The singular verb, was, agrees with
the singular subject, course, not the predicate
nominative, slices.]
The main courses for the supper were a se-
lection of chicken dishes. [The plural verb,
were, agrees with the plural subject, courses,
not with the predicate nominative, selection.]
Vases of flowers were the decoration at the
wedding reception. [The plural verb, were,
agrees with the plural subject; vases, not with
the predicate nominative, decoration.]
Her favourite part of musicals is the songs in
rounds. [The singular verb, is, agrees with the
singular subject, part, not with the predicate
nominative, songs.]

On your paper write the simple subject or sub-
jects in each of the following sentences. Then
write the form of verb in brackets that agrees
with the subject.
1. For many young people, the joys of the cir-
cus (is/are) a pleasure that they never outgrow.
2. Wrestling (remains/remain) a popular form of
entertainment in many developed countries.
3. The circuses of ancient Rome (was/were) ac-
tually a large group of chariot races performed
in a ring.
4. Perhaps the first of the modern circuses (was/
were) a onre-ring show by a well-known artiste,
an eighteenth-century horse-trainer.
5. In the twentieth century, circus performers
(was/were) the elite among popular entertainers.'
6. The most exotic part of all circuses (is/are)
the rare, wild animals.
7. The feats of an acrobat or a trained animal
(seems/seem) an impossibility to most of us.
8. Professional acrobatic leaps (appears/ap-
pear) an easy trick, but in fact they are quite dif-
ficult to perform.
9. The strains of the mandolin (is/are) a joyous
sound, don't you think?
10. To me, an irresistible temptation (is/are) the
aromas of roasted peanuts and doughnuts.

Two Excerpts for your Scrutiny
Ten thousand vehicles careened through the
Green Park this perfect afternoon. Such a
show! And I have seen all watch'd it narrowly,
and at my leisure. Private barouches, cabs, and
coupes, some fine horseflesh lapdogs,
footmen, fashions, foreigners, cockades on
hats, crests on panels the full oceanic tide of
New York's wealth and 'gentility'. It was an
impressive, rich, international circus on a grand
scale, full of action and colour in the beauty of
the day, under the clear sun and moderate
breeze... Yet what I saw in those hours (I took
two other occasions, two other afternoons to
watch the same scene,) confirms a thought that
haunts me every additional glimpse I get of our
top-official, general or rather exceptional phases
of'wealth and fashion in this country namely,"
that they are ill at ease, much too conscious,
cased in too many cerements, and far from
happy that there is nothing in them which we
who are poor and plain need at all envy, and
that instead of the perennial smell of the grass
and woods and shores, their typical redolence
is of soaps and essences, very rare may be, but
suggesting the barber shop something that
turns stale and musty in a few hours anyhow.

After a while my way was stopped by a creek
or inlet of the sea, which seemed to run pretty
deep into the land;.and as I had no means to
get across, I must.necessarily change my direc-
tion to go about the end of it. It was still the
roughest kind of walking; indeed the whole,:not
only of Earraid, but of the neighboring part of
Mull (which they call the Ross) is nothing but a
jumble of granite rocks with heather in among:
At first the creek kept narrowing as I had looked
to see; but presently to my surprise it began to
widen out again. At this i scratched my head,
but had still no notion of the truth; until at last I
came to a rising ground, and it burst upon;me
all in a moment that I was cast upon a little, bar-
ren island, and cutoff on every side by the salt

Instead of the sun rising to dry me, it came on
to rain, with a thick mist; so that my case was

I stood in the rain, and shivered, and wondered
what to do, till it occurred to me that perhaps the
creek was fordable. Back I went to the narrow-
est point and waded in. But not three yards from
shore, I plunged in head over ears; and if ever I
was heard of more it was.rather by God's grace
than my own prudence. 1 was no wetter (for that
could hardly be) but I was all the colder for this
mishap; and having lost another hope, was the
more unhappy.

And now, all at onci, the yard came in my head.
..What had carried me through the roost, would,
surely serve me to cross this little quiet creek
in safety. With that I set off, undaunted, across
the top of the isle, to fetch and carry it back. It
was a weary tamp in all.ways, and if hope. had
not buoyed me up, I must have cast myself down
and given up. Whether with the sea salt, or be-
cause I was growing fevered, I was distressed
with thirst, and had to stop, as I went, and drink
the peaty water out of the hags.

'I'm here, I'm alive and welI

Chutney wonder Adesh Samaroo tells local fans


By Neil Marks
TRINIDAD chutney wonder
Adesh Samaroo is soon to hit
the stage in Guyana again,
but even though his shows are
two weeks away, he arrived in
Guyana early to dispel
rumours that he had died af-
ter a horrific accident in April.
Samaroo's comeback story
from the life-threatening accident

has astonished fans here and
abroad and therefore his Novem-
ber 5 and 6 shows at Diamond,
East Bank Demerara and
Uitvlugt, West Coast Demerara
are sure to be successful.
'Tm here, I'm alive and well,"
he told reporters at Banks' Thirst
Park two Wednesdays ago, making
known that Guyana would be his
10th tour after the accident.
Samaroo was returning home

from rehearsals for two shows
in Guyana and Disney World in
the USA, when his vehicle skid-
ded off the road some six months
However, even though he
suffered fractures to his skull and
cheekbones, a broken jaw and
swelling to the brain, he soon re-
cuperated and headed backed to
the recording studio, defying his
doctors' orders to take it easy.


The Government of Guyana has received financing from the EFA-FTI Catalytic
Fund towards the cost of Education for All-Fast Track Initiative (EFA-FTI) and is
sponsoring this competition to obtain a logo for its EFA-FTI programme which is
aimed at improving the education service at the Primary level.

Soon, he was performing in
his native T&T, other parts of
the Caribbean, and North
Now he is back in Guyana
where he has a huge following,
not only Indian, given that his
more popular songs 'Rum Till I
Die' and particularly 'Rajin
Jheem Jheem" propelled him to
cross-over glory.
At the sixth annual 103
FM awards, Adesh took home
five awards, the highest num-
ber by a solo performer. These
were Best Chutney Album,
Best Cover Version, Song of
the Year (Rajin Jheem
Jheem), Album of the Year
and Most Popular Locally Pro-
duced Song.
"At least now I have proof
that rum didn't kill meh," he said
after receiving his'awards, send-
ing the packed ballroom, which
included President Maxwell
Richards, into a fit of laughter.
"But seriously, thanks to the
doctors, my family, friends and
fans who showed me support
during the hard times and most
importantly to my God for be-
ing here for me," he added.
His November shows in
Guyana carry the banner 'The
return of the King' and Adesh
told reporters he will belt out
songs from his 2006 album,
which he has not yet named.
Talking abouthis music,Adesh
said Chutney songs are not meant
to spread social messages or any
message for that matter.
"What we (Chutney singers)
do is write and perform songs so
that people will have fun; the
songs have no meaning," he said.
Adesh Samaroo in Concert
is being promoted by the newly
formed Caribbean entertainment
group, comprising the popular
DJ Stress (Paul Bonar) and
Arvind Raghoenath, who has
been associated withAdesh since
the start of his performances

CONCERNS for world food security, the need to eradicate hunger and poverty, poor human nutrition
and related health conditions and the need to abate the environmental pollution aspects of heavy chemical
use in the 'Green Revolution' have spurred the agricultural biotechnology drive. Not too long ago,
Professor David Tilman of the University of Minnesota, documented the global environmental impacts
of agricultural expansion in prestigious journal 'Proceedings of the US Nationl Academy of Sciences'.
As noted by Nobel Laureate, Professor Norman Borlaug. in the journal 'Plant Physiology' a few years
ago, "The majority of agricultural scientists, including myself, anticipate great benefits from biotechnol-
ogy in the coming decades to help meet our future needs for food and fibre. The commercial adoption by
farmers of transgenic crops [=GM crops] has been on6 of the most rapid cases of technology diffusion in
the history of agriculture." Professor Borlaug is the father of the Green Revolution working along with
Professor Monkumbo Swaminathan, former Chairman of Iwokrama, who is named the father of India's
Green Revolution.
It is now widely accepted that modern biotechnology is the third great technological revolution in the
history of humankind. The Industrial and Computer Revolutions are now widely acclaimed as the first
and second great technologicalreyolutions, respectively, according to Dr. Peter Abelson, in an article in the
journal 'Science' published in 1998.

The year 1973, is now widely accepted as the dawn of genetic engineering, a technology that has had
a phenomenal impact on modem agricultural biotechnology. It was the year of a major scientific break-
through. Dr. Herbert Boyer and Dr. Stanley Cohen successfully used a technique called the 'Lobban and
Kaiser technique' in molecular biology to isolate a gene (the unit of the cell responsible for conferring
inherited traits in all organisms to their offspring) from the African clawed toad and inserting it into
To achieve this feat, they were able to use an enzyme called DNA ligase to tease the gene of interest
from the African clawed toad. We note that a gene had been transferred from a toad (Krappo) into a
bacterium! Genetic transfer through such genetic engineering techniques result in recombination of genes
which otherwise could not happen naturally; hence the use of the term TRANSGENIC for genetically
modified organisms. We will shelve a brief, lay persons' discussion of the methods of genetic engineering
to a much later date in this series.
Thirty-two years later, the genetic engineering breakthrough by Boyer and Cohen has now been
refined and adapted to major agricultural biotechnology pursuits. There are presently several agricultural
biotechnology crops or GM crops with a variety of genetically engineered traits. Soybean, considered the
world's greatest economically relevant oil crop has been genetically engineered to tolerate two broad-
spectrum herbicides which have serious environmental and health impacts. The herbicide-tolerant soy-
bean provides better weed control and also tends to reduce herbicide damage to the crop. In so doing, the
amount of herbicides used in soybean cultivation have been reduced. This has both economic, environ-
mental and health benefits.

A very recent major study by Graham Brookes and Peter Barfoot on the global economic and
environmental impact of GM crops from 1996 to 2004, published two months ago, found "there have
been substantial net economic benefits at the farm level amounting to a cumulative total of U$27 billion."
They also found agricultural biotechnology had reduced pesticide spraying, globally, by 172 million
kilograms. Thus the environmental pollution impact of pesticide use has been reduced by 14 per cent.
Additionally, the release of greenhouse gases from mechanised agriculture has been reduced to the "equivalent
of removing 5 million cars from the roads" of the world.
We note greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide from vehicle exhaust, among others, is a major cause
of global warming and related sea-level rise. The vulnerability of the coastland of Guyana, and our recent
experiences in January and as recent as two weeks ago, may help us reflect on agricultural biotechnology-
derived crops proven to be very safe which can also have significant environmental and social benefits. Of
course the issue of global warming and sea level rise is a trans-boundary or global one.

Herbicide tolerance traits have been genetically engineered into canola,
corn, cotton, flax, rice, tomato, sugar beet, tobacco and wheat. Reduced
herbicide use can therefore be achieved in the cultivation of these GM
crops. Insect resistance traits have been genetically engineered into corn,
cotton, potato, and tomato, making these crops resistant to insect at-
tacks. The gene for the insect toxin was isolated from a common soil
BL. While tlhi bacienum was discovered in 1915, its use in genetic
engineering began iust about two decades ago.

Plant Cell Reports. the i isolation and genetic engineering of a scorpion

More information on Teeth

Estimation of the examination of teeth

THIS last episode of data on teeth will deal with the ascer-
taining of the approximate age of the animal, in this case dogs,
by observing the wearing down and loss of teeth.
Already in the recent TVA columns we have discussed the erup-
tion and loss of the baby 'teeth We will now focus on the perma-
nent teeth.
Of course, the key word is estimation. One cannot be 100 per
cent accurate in defining the exact age of the dog, since so many
factors impact on the wearing down of the teeth. These factors in-
clude diet and the state of oral health of the dog. Obviously, if the
dog is eating only soft food, the wearing down of the teeth will be
different from an animal whose diet is predominantly bone. Simi-
larly, if the dog is not getting a balanced nutrition, the teeth will, in
all probability become.loose in the jaws and fall out. The poor diet
will also lead to an easier wearing down because the hard tissue
(enamel) of the teeth will not be able to withstand the rigours asso-
ciated with chewing.
I should mention though that a well fed dog with a healthy oral
cavity will not experience too much dental decay. Generally speak-
ing, a dog's saliva has a slightly acidic pH and that makes the mouth
more resistant to caries. Also, a good canine diet is largely free of
readily fermentable carbohydrates. Finally, the structure of the jaws
could influence greatly the wearing of the teeth. For example, a dog
with a "parrot bite" (the top jaw protrudes well over the bottom

jaw. i or a dog % ith a prograthic bottom jaw i.the bottom ja"w push-
ing forward) would hate an irregular %%eanng of the teeth.
Now let me explain that the cusps of the teeth are the cutting/
chewing edges/surfaces. It is the amount of wear of the cusps that
we use to approximate the age of the dog. I know that most people
use the "rule of thumb" of 7 human equal years to one dog year.,
This is too simplistic.
I would prefer if you use the following chart:

1V2 years Cusps are worn flat on the lower middle incisors.
Tartar begins to form on the canines.
21/2 years Cusps are worn flat on the lower intermediate
Tartar is quite noticeable on the canines.
31/2 years Cusps are worn flat on the upper middle inci-
41/2 years Cusps are worn flat on the upper intermediate
5 years Cusps are worn flat on the last incisor. The ca-
nines begin to show wear.
6 years All the lower incisors are worn flat and the ca-
nines appear blunted.
7 years Lower incisors worn down to the root so much
that the biting surface becomes elliptical.
8 years Biting surface of lower incisors is inclined for-
10 years Upper incisors also show elliptical surfaces.
12 years Incisors begin to fall out,

F ORMER People's National Congress
Reform (PNCR) executive member, Mr
Raphael Trotman will lead the country's
latest political party into the 2006 general
elections, the group announced at its formal
launching yesterday.
Trotman was named as the party's presidential candidate for
the elections and expelled People's Progressive PartN/Ci ic tPPP/
C) executive member, Mr Khemraj Ramjattan is his running mate
as prime ministerial candidate.
The alliance said it has a rotating leadership ssiem with
Ramjattan as AFC Leader but with Trotman as its presidential can-
didate for next year's elections.
The official launch of the new political movement took place
at the Ocean View International Convention Centre at Liliendaal.
East Coast Demerara. with a wide cross-section audience of AFC
members, supporters, well-wishers and observers.
"We dare to be different in our approach as a political move-
ment ibut) this task of being a major force on the political land-
scape of Guyana is not going to be easy and we are well aware
than unless innovation in political procedures and arrangements
are created, the racial/ethnic divide will persist," Ramjanan told those
at the launching.
He said it is for dus reason that "the concept of rotauon in
leadership positions" in the AFC has been agreed upon by the
party's steering committee made up of himself, Trotman. Sheila
Holder. Tony Vieira, Gaumatlie Singh and Asgar Ahi.
The AFC has been touted as the *third force' to challenge the
traditional dominance of the local political landscape b% the PPP/C
and the PNCR.
Ramjattan said his group is awaiting "reactions to this novelty"
leadership idea, which it views as a "useful innovation in a polarised
landscape, where talk of sharing must begin within parties if we
want to be realistic that it will happen at other levels".
He said that based on this rotating leadership plan, the AFC
has decided that its presidential and prime ministerial candidates, if
successful in their bid for these offices at the national elections,
shall "each hold such offices respectively for half-term, and there-
after such offices shall be alternated whereby the President and Prime
Minister shall be obliged to transfer office to the other, who is obliged
to assume such office."
In similar terms, if the Presidential candidate is only successful
in being elected as Opposition Leader at national elections, such
office shall be held by him for half-term, and thereafter such office
shall be transferred to the prime ministerial candidate, Ramjattan
He declared that the "old politics of suspicion, spite and strife
will get us nowhere, except infecting in our psyche a migratory cul-
ture and the celebration of mediocrity." i
"And it is not only a migration from Guyana to other lands but
a migration from good standards, good values and beliefs, ethnical
conduct a moving away from the decent to the indecent, as it were,
resulting in that land of mediocrity", he said.
Ramjattan said the AFC was working on an action plan along
with mechanisms and processes to realise its strategic goals.
Trotman told supporters the party will face "severe opposi-
tion, disappointment, attacks some of which have already begun in
the form of rumour, character assassination and harassment (but)
we will have to grit our teeth and persevere because the nation ex-
pects nothing less of us."
Noting that in the recent past, the leading players in the AFC
had been referred to as "wishy-washy rejects", "upstarts", "dream-
ers" and "opportunists", he told the gathering that the AFC ex-
pects to be also accused in the future of "every crime ever declared
and every vice ever practised".
Trotman assured that the AFC will work steadfastly and re-
lentlessly to bring this vision into reality and be a part of a move- -
ment for change
"From where we stand today, the future of Guyana
looks better than bright," the AFC Presidential candidate

PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo
yesterday announced that
$30M will be allocated to
several communities along
the East Coast Demerara in
Region Four (Demerara/
Mahaica) for drainage
improvements to avert floods.
The funds will be given to
the Regional Democratic
Council (RDC) this week, he
said, while visiting several
"It is for the maintenance of
the drainage system, works that
we did before and also to build
some sluices, one at Ann's
Grove, so that we are prepared
for the upcoming rainy season,"
the President said.
Before the site checks, he
met officials from the Ministry
of Finance, the National
Drainage and Irrigation Board
(ND&IB) and the RDC at his
official State House residence in
Georgetown to discuss the
region's preparations for the
coming rains.
"I am very pleased to see
works going on at the seawall at
Mon Repos which we
promised the residents (during
the spring tide), and also to see
many of the pumps are
functional," he said.
Mr Jagdeo told residents at
Ann's Grove he did not want to
raise expectations that there
would be no flooding if there is
excessive rainfall. However, the
government is trying its utmost

and will continue to do so to
ensure there are proper drainage
systems on the coast, he said.
At a press briefing before
the visit at his official State
House residence in the city, the
President assured that financial
resources are being made
available to bolster
infrastructure essential for
effective drainage in
communities vulnerable to
He noted that $50M has
been allocated to the City
Council for immediate drainage
works in Georgetown and said
that from reports he has had,
installing 100 culverts, clearing
internal drains and repairs to
sluices, among other aspects,
have begun.
During his recent visit to
Region Three (West
Demerara/Essequibo Islands),
the President said, he
inspected some flood-prone
areas and has since made
available to the regional
administration some $20M
for the necessary
infrastructure works to
improve the drainage system
in those areas, which include
Canals Polder No.1 and 2,
Goed Fortuin and
Five million of the $20M
will be spent to clear the main,
canal in Goed Fortuin, while the
remainder willbe divided among
the other communities.

that they are not as "big and bad

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 30, 2005 C



BY Sir Ronald Sanders
(The writer is a former
Caribbean diplomat, now
business, executive, :.who
publishes widely on Small
States' in the. global,
THE end of 2005 is now a few
short weeks away and so is
yet another of the deadlines
that CARICOM Heads of:
Government had set for the
establishment of the Cirib-
bean Single Market. It is a
deadline that the CARICOM
region cannot afford to miss
yet again. Should it do so,
harm of such magnitude will
be done to its credibility with
the international community
that it is difficult to see how
it will garner their attention
in the future.
In the last few weeks, as the
lead head of government on the.

CSME, the .Prime Minister of
Barbados, Mr Owen Arthur,
has visited Antigua and Barbuda
and St. Vincent.and the Grena-
dines to meet. governments, par-'
liamentary opposition groups
and. the private sector to ad-
dress concerns that seem to per-
sist over the Caribbean Single
Market and Economy (CSME).
He is also scheduled to lead a
team to Dominica and Guyana.
Mr Arthur is to be con-
gratulated for his single-
mindedness in continuing to take
the message of the CSME'into
doubting and fearful communi-
ties. From the very outset of the
concept in 1989, the political'di-
rectorate of CARICOMN should
have been driving the education
and information process on this
vital issue.
In the meetings he has held'
within the region so far, Prime.
Minister Arthur has encoun-

tered manyof doubts; fears and,
in some cases, open antagonism
to the CSME, .
Yet;, it ws 16 years ago
that CARICOM Heads of:
Government first declared
that they were "determined
to work towards the 'estab-
lishment, in the shortest
possible time, of a single
market and economy, for the
Caribbean community".
That declaration, entitled'
'The Grand Anse Declaration
and Work Programme for the
advancement of the integra-
tion movement' was 'issued at
the. Tenth meeting. ,of
CARICOM Heads in
Grenada in July 1989.
It may be that many did
not take it seriously, expect-
ing it to fall another
one of the objectives set by
regional leaders that would
amount to nothing. There is
certainly justification for
such a feeling. For, along the
path of regional integration
many objectives have been es-
tablished, only to be aban-
doned not least. because
vested interest groups within
the region worked hard to
scuttle them in their own in-

Of course, there cannot be
a direct comparison between the
EU and what is contemplated in
the CSME, principally because
of two factors: first, the EU had
machinery for financing disad-
vantaged countries, bringing
them up to par with an average
European standard, and, second,
there is freedom of movement
of people amongst the majority
of EU member states. The
CSME will not allow freedom
of movement of labour except in
some categories that have al-
ready been clearly specified,
and, to date, there is no agreed
machinery for financing devel-
opment to an average Caribbean
standard, although work is be-
ing done on this by the Carib-

hean Development Bank.,

itself, will breach that for-
tress. And, while CARICOM,
as the CSME, will also have
considerable difficulty break-
ing down these established
walls, at least' the sound of its
horn will be louder and
harder to ignore..
I Similarly in trade. At the
WTO, the US, the EU and
Japan are the principal play-
ers contending. with each
other for advantage, but
working together to resist the:
growing strength of China,

ters chosen to participate in the

mal' meetings, will be chosen as
a representative of the region as

a whole and will be expected
both to represent !he region,
and, when the. time. comes, to
'deliver' the region as %ell.
Behind such ministers, there
should be the best Caribbean
brains that can be assembled-
from across the Caribbean na-
tions to develop positions. and
give advice.
And,. in relation to the ne-
gotiations with the EU on all of
the trade issues, including sugar
and bananas, I simply say;
"Ditto". No single small state
in CARICOM has the re-
sources, financial and human, to
negotiate the complex and tech-
nical, issues on its own.
Smallness is powerless-
ness, and in today's world
the national boundaries .of
small states suffocate not
only business but individual
endeavour. For, as the mat-
ter has been put: "boundaries
are not only territorial, they
are mental and conceptual".
Within all the states of
CARICOM, businesses,
trades unions and people at
all levels need to change their
concept and mental attitude
to the notion of 'bound-
aries"; with the CSME, the
boundaries of countries
should extend to all of
CARICOM just as the na-
tional boundaries of Texans
or New Yorkers extend to all
of the United States.
Texas or. New York may
make their way in the world, but
not as well as the United States
as a whole.
The political director-
ate of the region should
join Prime Minister Arthur
in his meetings throughout
the region between now
and year end to argue the
case for the CSME, for an-
other .missed deadline
would not be in interest of

A clamorous, porcine

celebration gets the judges' nod

By Raschid Osman

CASTELLANI House Wednesday evening
unveiled the display coming out of this
year's Watercolour Competition, and what
stands out this time around is a clutch of some
considerably competent works, along with the
contentious judging by Terence Roberts, Angold
Thompson and Kathy Thompson.
It seems that the judges opted for themes not usually depicted
in competitions of this sort, and a certain "Caribbean-ness", as dis-
tinct from the Eurocentric style with which some of our artists are
so taken. This was posited by Mr. Roberts in remarks as the win-
ners were announced at the unveiling Wednesday.
And so, the first, second and third prizes were announced, going
to Travell Blackman for 'In The Midst of Life', to Josefa Tamayo
for 'Maticore', and to Shawnton King for 'The Lily'.
Perhaps 'In The Midst of Life' is .not a hands-down win-
ner, but it is an arresting work, a clamorous, porcine celebra-
tion made intriguing by so much being left to the viewer's imagi-
nation. A sow lies supine on the ground, and it's feeding time

for her litter of ten, huddling along her belly. One feels the dis-
tinct urge to get into the picture and see the young ones pull-
ing at their mother's teats and slurping the thick, fatty milk.
Even the sow's face is hidden by foliage, and again the viewer
is robbed. One can only imagine the contentment. on the snout
of this milk machine.
Blackman manages pleasing skin tones for these farmyard deni-
zens, and the green bower in which they feast offers a restful, muted
contrast, fashioning what is probably close to the Peaceable King-
'Maticore' by Tamayo, the second prize winner, features a band
of street musicians, drumming as they move along an otherwise de-
serted roadway, standing in their shadows in what must be the heat
of the day, utility poles., receding into the background and lending
depth to the piece. Here, Tamayo's brush work is sketchy arid mini-
mal, though she manages to suggest movement and sound and light
quite admirably. i
And -then there is the third prize winner, Shawnton King's
'The Lily', a daring piece with a reflection of the flower taking
up more than half of the canvas. The lily sits majestically by a
pond, its lush, spreading petals reflected in the water, shimmer-
ing and broken, the artist applying transparencies and hoping
it will *all come out well. It does actually, and the result is an

arresting, dramatic still life.
Now for the Honourable Mention, Tamayo's 'Orchid'. Unlike
her 'Maticore', Tamayo's 'Orchid' is carefully created, a still life
throbbing with vitality and set jewel-like in an incredibly green set-
ting. A parallel set of slim vines joins with a wide leaf to create a
gabled architectural motif, and other stems and leaves lend move-
ment to the piece, the whole picture flanked by the sturdy tree trunks.
The orchid itself is done in a variety of pinks, with a touch of
gold, and sits there in pride of place, very much like the main theme
of a Mozart symphony gleaming through, the lush obbligato of its
green domain.
Castellani House bolstered its exhibition with a set of
watercolours from the national collection, including pieces by
Broodhagen, Hubert Moshett and Emerson Samuels.
This fourth Castellani House National Watercolour
Competition is sponsored by the New Building Society
Limited, and continues at the National Gallery until No-
vember 19, 2005.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 30, 2005G:

High Court must

deal with Trotman

seat issue

THE Speaker of the National
Assembly, Ralph Ramkarran
has denied the request by the
Leader of the Opposition and
the People's National
Congress Reform (PNCR),
Robert Corbin to have the
parliamentary seat of its
former member, Raphael
Trotman declared vacant.
Corbin had sought to have
Trotman's seat declared vacant
on the grounds that he no longer
supports the list from which he
became a Member of
Parliament. But at the sitting of
the National Assembly on
Thursday last, Mr. Ramkarran
stated that such matters are out
of his jurisdiction and are dealt

with by the High Court.
Earlier, Mr. Corbin had
written the Speaker requesting
that Trotman be unseated in
accordance with Article 156 (3)
of the Constitution.
According to the PNCR,
Trotman "is no longer qualified
to be a member of the National
Assembly and that, in the
absence of his resignation, his
seat should be declared vacant.
The PNCR further stated
that it had hoped the norms of
ethical behaviour would have
prevailed and Mr. Trotman
would have by now resigned his
seat as a PNCR Member of
Trotman resigned from the

- Speaker

PNCR more than five months
ago. He also resigned from
parliamentary sub-committees
on which he represented the
party and publicly announced
his intention of launching a new
political party. He has-been
absent from the last 11 sittings
of the National Assembly, the
PNCR said.
"The party therefore
expected that Mr. Trotman
would act in conformity with
his declared high ethical and
moral standards. Regrettably
he has failed to do so, but the
PNCR has a responsibility to
pursue the interests of its
members throughout Guyana,"
the PNCR declared.

Trotman willing to

represent the people and the national interest in the National Assembly on the ground of party
He argued, too, that the Constitution never gave this power of removal to political parties.
According to him, there is constitutional recognition of the fact that in the National
Assembly the interest of the people is greater than the interest of the party. And this
is why, he contended, there is no prohibition against any member of the National
Assembly voting inconsistently with the party's other members, or refraining from
voting consistently with them.
This is also why there is no prohibition against a person being among a party's list of candidate
without being a member of that party, he added.
"A party is simply the vehicle to getting worthy members into the destination called the National
Assembly (and) once that destination is reached, such members become representatives of the people
and defenders of the national interest, first and foremost",, he said.
He said members of the National Assembly who perceive themselves as representatives of their
respective parties rather than representatives of the people are subscribers in no small measure to the
concept of party, paramountcy and the democratic centralist doctrine.
Ramjattan said such members are "guilty of party sycophancy" and will never be true to
the oath they have taken upon entry into that august body. (MARK RAMOTAR)

T HE Health Ministry is urging all poultry workers
to take precautions against the dreaded bird flu
virus as it maintains a close watch on possible signs
of it here.
In the first of its promised weekly updates on plans to
cope, the ministry said Guyana is in phase one of the pre-
pandemic stage in the Influenza Preparedness Plan.
It stressed that the H5NI virus has not been detected in
either the bird or human populations.
Countries with documented cases of Avian Flu in animals
are Cambodia, China, Croatia, Hong Kong, Indonesia,
Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam.
Japan was detected with H5N2.
The signs of Bird Flu in humans start with a fever which
occurs within four days of exposure followed by influenza like
symptoms such as cough, sore throat and sometimes shortness
of breath.
Watery diarrhoea is present in the early stages of the illness
as well as gastrointestinal symptoms such as abdominal pain
and vomiting and headaches, the ministry reported.
In animals there will be. severe depression, lack of appetite,
decline in, egg production, sudden death, dehydration and
discharge from nasal (nose) and oral (mouth) cavities.
The ministry is advising poultry workers to immediately
notify suspected cases to a Veterinary Officer, Flock Supervisor
or Agricultural Field Officer.
They should also take precautionary measures when
handling and disposing of ill birds, disinfect and clean all
equipment and clothes properly and minimise human traffic on
farms, it said.
Members of the public are also being advised to practice
basic hygiene, including frequent hand washing with soap,
covering nose and mouth when sneezing and coughing.
If any of the mentioned signs and symptoms are observed
persons can seek medical attention.
More information can be obtained from the Ministry of
Health on telephone number 226-5164.
This strain of avian flu originated from Asia, where some
human cases resulted in death in Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia,
Thailand and Hong Kong. The mode of transmission still
remains from bird to human.
To date, there are no human cases or animal cases in
the Americas including Guyana's neighboring countries
or the Caribbean.




TO: All Wildlife Exporters, Commercial Dealers and
the General Public.
The Wildlife Division will be closed to the General
Public from Thursday, November 10, 2005 to Monday,
November 14, 2005. Business will resume as per
normal on Tuesday- November 15,2005.

The Management of the Wildlife Division regrets any

inconvenience caused.
