NCDF admits slow
National Carnival Development
Association president Mahindra
Satram Maharaj yesterday admit-
ted that its been slow going with
Carnival mas band registrations,
plus there's been reports of people
selling costumes on social media.
Velma Farrell: I don't believe
us travel ban is secondary. I know
of 20 green card holders who can-
cel their trips for Carnival for fear
of not being allowed to return.
There is a warning not to travel
outside the US as a green card
Aneil Palmer: And in other
Barry Telesford: Sell it for a
$1000 and it will move.
Dave M Simmons: Drop the
Gailann Jugmohansingh: U
know what else missing? Money.

Middle managers at the T&T
Electricity Commission (T&TEC)
are threatening to withhold their
enthusiasm after their salaries
were not adjusted in line with the
recent union agreement for work-
ers in the collecting bargaining
Azroon Hosein-Ali: They got
the shock of their lives.
Kenny Supersad: TTEC run-
ning at a loss and they want in-
Kenny Supersad: There are
many blown street lights through-
out the country. Fix that.
Vinnie Envoy GoldenBoy: I
have street lights in my
village not working for
months now. I called,
sent email, visit offices
and stopped off at To-
ruba branch, they said
that they are aware of it
but they are working on
Please upgrade their
salaries so that they can
go from withholding
their enthusiasms to
moderating their en-
A secondary school
student is now suffer-
ing from partial mem-
ory loss after he was
during a fight with
another child in a classroom last
Annesa M Ali: Sad but system
will wait for a child to die by the
hands of a bully to intervene and
come up with solutions. For now
they're comfortable sweeping
it under the carpet. Parents no
longer like to be held accountable
for their poor parenting skills that
shows up too well in their children.
Mala Seepersad Leslie: Nah
man, they was playing knock out.
Camille Saunders: I hope dey
don't blame it this time on www
raw and say the children were
playing. Somebody child will have
to die first before some one is held
Khyra Phillip: We do not know
(at least it was not mentioned in
the article) who was the aggressor.
Isn't it premature to start bashing
the other child and his parents?
Debra Thompson: I thought
that there are no camera phones
allowed in schools.
Well, the kid or kids that are
filming and posting on fb for their
pleasure should be reprimanded
Michelle Mitchell: When
oh when will we accept that the
schools are a reflection of our
homes? It's what parents nurture
and cultivate that make up the
school's ecosystem. And, when the
children can look teachers directly
in their faces and let them know
what their powers are and aren't,
then we know where primary re-
sponsibility lies, on the shoulders
of the caregivers.
Harry Ramharack: Parents
were breeding these monsters and
sending them to the teachers who
cannot control them, nor can the
police. Weaker students would
have to learn some survival skills.
We are becoming more violent
from an earlier age.
A vendor was fined $9,000 last
week after he admitted he mistook
a bag containing a loaded gun for a
bag of marijuana.
Listra Ramoutar Lochan:
Kendall K Roache: Am I the
only one? Isn't the intent to sell
weed a criminal act?
Anton Pope: Only in the Ba-
nana Republic of Trinidad and
Tobago. Instead of going to jail for
possession of an illegal firearm you
get a fine of 9000 dollars. And we
wonder why crime so bad in this
Angela Mc Intyre: So illegal
gun is still on the street...what
kind of joke is this?
Gail Huggins: So when he see
is a firearm why he keep it? Maybe
wishing it was really weed now, eh.
Fisherman held with
gun, ammo, drugs
A fisherman who was caught by
police with a loaded gun tucked in
his pants in Marabella is expected
to appear before a San Fernando
Markus Rodgers: Where else
would he tuck his gun? lol
Phil Williams: Did he shoot
Roger Alexander: Mona's Roti
shop is opposite the Marabella Po-
lice Station. Mr Man went there to
buy roti with gun in waist.
Atiba Williams: Wonder if he
really is a fisherman! Seems like a
gunman to me or instead of catch-
ing fish he catching gun.
