Pioneers and legends of our Carnival art forms, those who pioneered and paved the way for the more modern-day fraternity...mas (band leaders especially), calypso (artistes including the advent of soca) and steelpan (panmen and steelbands).

Mid-January news reports convey that a High Court judge granted an injunction to stop construction of the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway extension to Manzanilla. This application was made by the Fishermen and Friends of the Sea (FFOS).

This should be of serious concern to one and all. I went to have my ten-year-old plus vehicle inspected last week, as is the law, as I am a staunch advocate of enforcing and following the law. I made sure everything was in order and my vehicle passed with flying colours.

While Trinidad and Tobago is a young nation in terms of its independence and self-governance, in many ways the nation is as mature as any other nation, and perhaps more so than some.

I was quite disappointed when I saw our U-19 cricket team boys fail to go any further and being eliminated in the first round. I am sure that many West Indian cricket lovers would have felt the same way.

I would like to inform the public to be aware of and not accept any traffic tickets from (what appears to be) CDA police, due to the fact they are not wearing official uniforms to issue such.

Economist Mary King in her most recent article has dubbed the “government-appointed committee headed by Mr Christian Mouttet”, a “misstep”. I beg to disagree.

Everybody wants the police and the government to fix crime. You know why? Because it lets the individual off the hook.

Mr Individual, you can solve crime, but it will cost you.

Man, marry your woman and have your children in a home with a mother and a father.

Really? Machel Montano incites a fete crowd to “jam” women without their permission? Isn’t that assault? And isn’t encouraging others to commit a crime also against the law?

Get the mathematics and common sense correct. It costs more than $25,000 monthly to upkeep an illegal person in detention. It will cost $100,000 to send them back to their home country.

There is a problem developing that if not dealt with as soon as possible, can lead to regrets. Here it is that our records are showing some 14,178 visitors have overstayed their time and up to the end of November they were still here.

It was quite refreshing to see the EMA’s CEO, Mr Hayden Romano, recently taking a firm stand against excessive noise levels associated with fetes, particularly during the Carnival season.

What utter nonsense from the promoters of the Red Ants fete, that keeping the volume for the music at a fete within the specified levels would kill carnival.

I would like to commend the Environment Management Authority (EMA) on the position it has taken with respect to the noise level at fetes and other cultural events.

On Saturday Red Ants had a fete called Stumped. They complained like babies about having to follow the laws about decibel noise. Imagine that!
