Host of the television pro-
gramme Point Blank, Marcia
Henville, will be missed by the
youths in some of the impov-
erished and crime-ridden areas
of T&T where she worked to
restore peace between rival
gangs and bring a voice to the
Speaking with the Sunday
Guardian yesterday, community
leader in the Beetham area Ken-
neth "Spanish" Rodriguez
expressed shock on hearing of
Henville's tragic death.
Rodriguez said he worked
closely with Henville for years
and described her as a humble
"Marcia was a very good soul.
May the light shine upon her
now. Marcia would reach out to
me and we would talk for hours
about what was happening
among the youths in this com-
munity. She tried her best to
reach out to them, to listen to
their cries, their concerns, their
hurts, their anger, their every-
Rodriguez said Henville was
well-known and well-respected
in the deprived areas "because
she stood up for the youths and
she made it her business to listen
to them and help them out in
any and every way that she could
Sea Lots resident Tony Isaac
said Henville was one of the very
few that stood up for people like
"I know Marcia for years, and
she was a real woman. She took
the time and would come in the
area and would sit and talk to us.
She understood what caused the
wars among the communities,
including here in Sea Lots, and
highlighted the war, the guns,
the drugs in public so that people
would see the broader picture in
exposing the truth and why peo-
ple did what they did," Isaac said.
"Marcia will be surely missed.
I don't know if there is anyone
out there who can fill her shoes.
This is so sad," he added.
Another resident who lived at
Picton Road, Laventille, but did
not want his name published,
said, "I really can't believe that
the only woman that stand up
for us is now dead and gone. If
she died out of the ordinary, trust
me we will have to get justice for
The resident said when all
attempts were made to get a fair
hearing from the relevant author-
ities, especially when one of their
own was killed by the police,
Henville made it her business to
come and get the story straight
and expose it on national tele-
"She was that type of person.
She was never one to be afraid
and would come and broadcast
the reality of things and truth
behind the police abuse towards
us and why they want to kill us
out and why other people want
to come in here in Laventille to
kill us. Marcia was the only one
with a heart for us. May she rest
in Sea Lots, Beetham

Crime continues to be a
major source of concern for the
burgesses of Chaguanas, a con-
sultation on borough to city
status for Chaguanas heard on
Saturday, at Presentation Col-
lege in Chaguanas.
Zamanath " Billy" Ali, chair-
man of the Central Steering
Committee for the borough to
city status initiative, said, "It is
a fact that statistics can show
that crime is down in the bor-
ough when compared to the
previous years. However, there
is a general sense that people
are not feeling 100 per cent that
they are safe. That can be
dependent on geographic areas
where they reside---some areas
are more prone to crime than
others. We are fortunate to have
developed an excellent relation-
ship with the community and
the police and our current Senior
Superintendent Johnny Abra-
Ali said traffic remained the
major grouse for burgesses. "It
takes the community too long
during peak hours to navigate
the roadways of Chaguanas.
That nuisance, if not dealt with,
can become a hindrance to pop-
ulation movement and economic
development. There are solu-
tions that all stakeholders are
working on and I am certain
that when some of the initiatives
are implemented the citizens
will feel a sense of relief. I have
been quoted in the past to say
that I prefer to have the problem
of traffic because that in itself
says that everybody wants to
live and work in Central for some
reason and this problem I see
Executive director of the Eco-
nomic Development Board Dr
Rikhi Permanand said, "This
consultation is a demonstration
of economic and social devel-
opment happening at the com-
munity level." Former mayor
Orlando Nagessar said there was
a great demand for housing
amongst the lower income group
and suggested that more areas
apart from lands for the former
Caroni sugar workers be allo-
cated for housing in the bor-
