Trini escapes airport gunfire
Deputy Chaguanas Mayor
Faaiq Mohammed was among
thousands of travellers caught in
last Friday's mass shooting in Ft
Lauderdale International Airport
Maharani Tricia Johan: They
did not depart, the whole airport was
shut down. I'm still here on stand-
by... Hopefully I will leave tomorrow.
Kenneth Ross: The shooting took
place in Terminal 2 lower level bag-
gage claim area. Terminal 2 is where
Delta Airlines and Air Canada are lo-
cated. The deputy mayor would have
had to be in terminal 2 which is on
the north side of the airport to hear
the gunshots as Caribbean Airlines is
in Terminal 4 on the south side of the
airport with the multi-story parking
garage in between and I doubt you
can hear the gunshots from there.
I'm confused about this part of his
story since he also said he was at the
security check point and you don't
go through security when you get off
Nerissa Dqueen: It was only a
matter of time before we heard a
Trini was present. Next stop, he will
be on The Morning Brew. Wait fuh it!
Nicole Sweetness Duncan: The
shooting took place in terminal 2 and
Caribbean Airlines is in terminal 4 in
that airport far away from each oth-
er. What he feel, ppl don't travel to
Hollywood international airport?
Fire victims move
into new home
Five-year-old Anna Seecharan
was overjoyed yesterday as her father
carried a mattress into their new
home, less than a month after their
old house was destroyed by fire.
Renuka Melanie Ragoonath
Baksh: This man is so grateful for
what he received! They move into a
house with no windows. I really hope
they settle in and get whatever help
they need asap.
Dasielle Kelly'Ann Diaz-Fair-
ley: I pray for more blessings over
this humble man and his family.
Oh these little darlings! I thank God
for them and may He continue to
Delano Bartholomew: Hmmm...
humility is the key, clearly he's very
thankful for whatever assistance he
received and you can see the level of
appreciation/gratitude is real... Take
note Ms...whatever her name is.
Nadia Tambie: I pray that things
really work out for this family. God is
good, just give him praise.
Thomas Arlene: An attitude of
gratitude will carry you far in life.
Oh my... they look so happy... it's the
world to them. And it should be. Pray
they continue to be blessed.
Another Pan Trinbago
Another member of the Keith Di-
az-led Pan Trinbago executive has
resigned insisting there was a lack
of transparency in the leadership of
the organisation. Assistant Secretary
Cindy Rosemin tendered her resig-
nation letter to the acting president
of Pan Trinbago Richard Forteau on
Peter DeGazon: Very good lady,
Roger Alexander: What you wait
so long for?
Elliott Washington: Nice look-
Priest: Root out rogues
in Police Service
Following a year which saw record
numbers of police officers being
charged with crimes, a religious
leader yesterday called upon police
to root out all corrupt members from
within its ranks in an effort to restore
the public's trust and confidence in
the Police Service.
Hunter Boss: It is refreshing to
hear that someone can stand up and
speak the truth to the police service.
Thk u sir, I hope more voices can be
directed to ensure that we have a se-
vice that we can be proud of.
Keron Pierre: This statement is
Lou Sandy: Don't forget to weed
out crooks who call themselves relli-
$m Dimanche Gras prize
cut, one song alone
There will be no million-dollar
first prize for the winner of this
year's National Calypso Monarch
competition and competitors can
only sing one song for Dimanche
Barry Telesford: Excellent.
Dashiki Phillip: Carnival goin
down the drain, smh.
Linda Dinanath: Nice govern-
Ksha Superfinelady Orr: I fore-
see the end of Dimanche Gras in time
Laurane No Nonsense: Why
drop the prize money? Let the busi-
ness sector contribute they profit
from the Carnival season in one way
or the other.
Glen Birsingh: Cease funding of
prize money to Chutney Soca Mon-
arch as well until artistes who wish
to compete can produce songs in
their own original melodies.
Pauline Wilson: Why is the
government paying the prize mon-
ey anyway? This should be making
enough to be self sufficient.
