The Regional Manager,
T&TEC, Sangre Grande,
It has been months since
street lights at LP #50 Good
Hope Street, Sangre Grande
have been reported to your
office as not working. The
last report was made in Jan-
uary and to date they remain
We are asking that you
please treat this as a matter
of urgency as street lights
add to a sense of security for
residents of the area.
Good Hope St,
HISTORIC BUILDINGS POSED THREAT---RONDON
Chairman of the Sangre Grande
Regional Corporation Terry Ron-
don says he has no intention of
apologising for the demolition of
four historic buildings, which he
claimed were encouraging crime,
being used as a dumping ground
and haven for street dwellers.
Barry Telesford Good riddance,
take a pic if people want, but get rid
of these relics.
JC Beau Sejour So the buildings
are within ur Regional Corp. they are
Gov't buildings. U, the Chairman, are
part of the Gov't. The Gov't, which,
you are apart of, abandoned the
buildings. Year after year you, the
Gov't, left the building unsecured.
Vagrants moved in. U do nothing or
little to secure the buildings. People
began to complain so u lick them down
and say you had to do it because the
buildings encouraged vagrants, which
you as part of the Gov't did nothing to
prevent in the first place. Sir, do you
recognize ur false logic here?
Audrey Dyall It's too dilapidated
for rehab to be kept as a historical site
so remove and rebuild, make Sangre
Grande look and smell great once
Anderson Khan Sure, buildings
pose more threat than criminals.
Nahshon Taylor Those and more
sites around the country could've
been protected as heritage sites to
boost tourism or be rehabilitated and
used as community-based learning
centres. It could've been an oppor-
tunity to reignite passion for positive
patriotism; nurturing and developing
a disciplined, tolerant and productive
society. Then again who cares. That
statement is not surprising.
Shirlene Nydia Gomez So that's
Kimarra Dhalai And the solution
is to destroy the building instead of
preserve and secure it? Clearly we not
serious about tourism... no vision at
all!Monormay Sookhai Maybe he has
plans for the land, you never know.
Nicole Almarales Yes, Grande
needs a serious face lift.
Akil Armstrong That is what you
call no vision but it's called restora-
Melina Hutchinson The build-
ings were being used as a haven for
criminals. I thought people wanted a
reduction in crime!
Jay Glou Why Trini's didn't get to-
gether and collectively fund the resto-
ration of the buildings ? We could buy
the latest phone, car and electronic
item but bawling for murder when the
corporation demolish properties the
average Trickydadian don't give two
Clyde Paul You all just talk without
having the facts. I was there when the
buildings were taken down. They were
already in a state to fall on their own.
Very, very unsafe even for vagrants.
Hinds: Water relief on the way
Southern areas which have
been without pipe-borne water
for the past month should see an
improvement in the next three to
four days since the Water and Sew-
erage Authority is increasing pro-
duction, Public Utilities Minister
Fitzgerald Hinds said yesterday.
Devindra Toolsie But the man
call a radio station last Saturday and
say the claims were false. So why the
change now with the Marie Antoinette
Diane Cheong Why do we have to
resort to this type of action before the
basic neccesities are provided to the
country? We are not progessing at all,
it seems like one step forward and two
Debbie Rajmani Seepersad I will
believe this when I see water flowing
in my pipe. Five weeks tomorrow, no
water, thanks WASA. Why was service
not improved earlier?
lands man behind bars
A labourer who was caught
sporting a bullet casing as a pen-
dant and wearing a camouflage
short pants landed him a night
in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Jeremiah Steele OK...plz solve a
real crime now...
Tyrone Singh Machine gun salute
at funerals no one gets arrested. Go
Nerissa Dqueen He will now be
wearing the silver bracelets to com-
pliment his outfit!
Karen Clarke He don't think he's
too old for bullet on a string. Lol
Ryan Steinberg Jr Sporting a bullet
casing and a camouflage pants and he
is in jail. The killers that are running
around with AR15 and thousands of
rounds of ammo is running around
freely. Does that make sense?
Melina Hutchinson It's against
the law to wear camouflage clothing.
Are you telling the police to only lock
up murderers and leave other people
to break the law? And the police have
solved many crimes in recent and past
Novana Forde Why would he
want to wear a bullet/casing and
camo pants? He tested the law and
got caught; end of story is a fine. May
seem small thing but the penalty is
State to pay over $1m
for excavator seizure
A Sangre Grande construc-
tion company has won a lawsuit
against the T&T Police Service
for impounding its excavator for
more than a year without criminal
charges being laid.
Michael Bartholomew I just can't
believe what I just read there... I mean
how could they make such a costly
mistake? That's a million dollars! They
held on to that piece of machinery for
a year? It took them a year to figure out
just who that excavator belonged to?
This is just unbelievable.
Magnus Albertus That is no
scene... is just the taxpayer dollar
down the drain!
Masheica Anella Thomas Our
Kyron Browne This is a very good
judgement, let's hope it helps to create

flawed, quirky, weird,
person you are."
