The Social Welfare Officers at the Aranguez Branch of the Ministry of Social Development and Family Services should be retrained in the correct manner with which they should to speak to members of the public.

When I saw the report of the condition of St Phillip Gov’t primary school my heart went out to those children who have to spend the greater portion of the day in this deplorable place.

As the first educators of the students who completed the CSEC and CAPE, many parents have voiced a few concerns about the recent developments that have occurred with respect to these exams, and would like some answers as well as, hopefully, some suggestions and solutions to resolve these issues...

Some of our fellow Caribbean islands are going up against the monstrous Hurricane Irma. One report stated that this may be the second strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic ocean. I know Trinbagonians are aware of what hurricanes are capable of.

I am wondering if Pollard had bowled a bad ball to Lewis so that he would make a century, what would be the comments. I still love the game (and Pollard and Lewis too.)

Many cricket fans are criticising Trident Captain Kieron Pollard for bowling a no-ball (whether intentional or not) for the last ball of the Patriot’s innings thereby denying Lewis (a fellow Trinidadian) the opportunity to score his first century in T20 cricket.

On Monday I had to pay a traffic ticket at the Magistrates Court on St Vincent Street, Port-of-Spain. What an eye-opener it was.

Not every trained officer, police or army, can deal effectively with violent confrontations with civilians. It is not that some officers are cowards but not everyone is blessed with nerves of steel.

I am of the view that if it was the intention of the authorities to add some “fire” to the Republic Day Activities by simply transferring the National Awards Ceremony to September 24, this would be an abject failure in terms of realism.

1989 and England and India, fierce opponents, are playing a One-Day International. England batted first and scored 255 for 7 in their 50 overs. In the run chase, India are 255 for 4 at the end of the 48th over with Chetan Sharma on 97. They need one run to win.

The proposed bridge to Tobago is one of the worst ideas I’ve ever heard. Instead of this expensive daydream, we need to step up, do the responsible thing and properly organise and run the sea and air bridges. We are islands after all, and should act like we can deal with this fact.

When Dwayne Bravo fumbled and caught Kieron Pollard, leaving Barbados Tridents reeling at 62 for 7 in the tenth over, his infantile “celebration” of running half way around the field suggested that he thought the match was over.

I have watched practically all the CPL matches and one of the things that struck me at Queen’s Park Oval was the absence of traditional carnival mas characters at the ground, save for three blue devils sponsored by Republic Bank Ltd.

The rule of law, its practice and implementation, is the bedrock of any democracy. I thought about this as I joined and enjoyed Trinidad and Tobago’s Independence Day celebrations last week. Not least given the other issue which dominated much of the news at the end of the week.

My sympathy goes out to the three Broadbridge children on the sad occasion of the murder of their mother. I had been friends with their late parents, Bernard and Claire, since the late 1960s and admired the unselfish contributions both made to our country.
