PM: GOVT PERFORMING REASONABLY WELL
Prime Minister Dr Keith Row-
ley says the country is not at
a standstill as the Govern-
ment has continued to reduce
expenditure while protecting
economic stability. He said the
Government had done well and
they were now moving towards
anticipated growth at a lower
level of national expenditure.
He also acknowledged that there
was room for improvement.
Mimi Bocas: I agree, Dr Rowley.
Hollis Baptiste: Good job PNM.
Candace Alyssa: Wait, what?
Joan Ramoutar: I wonder which one
of the working class living better
Jason Ali: Self-praise is no praise!
Kris Mohammed: Ladies and gentle-
men, welcome to the twilight zone.
José Carlos Oliveira: Have you all
heard Chavez or Maduro ever say
they're economy was bad or the
country needed help?
June Sampson: I agree.
Eye to Eye: If a ferry is not working,
is it at a standstill? If a property tax
you tried to fraudulently force upon
the people of T&T is in the hands of
the court, is it in standstill? If a new
state of the Couva hospital is not in
use, is it in standstill? What would
you use to describe these?
One gunned down,
2 wounded at
Alime for family and friends
held at Edric Connor Park,
Mayaro, ended in tragedy
when a gunman opened fire on
the group killing one person and
injuring two others yesterday
Rick Gopaul: Come on people, some-
one died due to a shooting and you
all have nothing better to say other
than discussed political views? Se-
riously? You are better than that,
don't wait for someone to set a good
example, be the example!
Claudius Mathura: Were there any
patrol in the area? Take note of this
Nat Security Minister Dillon.
Gabbec Poly: This is real nonsense,
we need security before justice.
Student's act of
kindness lands him
on school's honour roll
Darius Herbert, a Form Four
student of Trinity East, was
running late for school on
Wednesday morning so he de-
cided to take a short cut down
Henry Road in Trincity. While
Herbert was walking briskly to
try to get to school on time he
stopped to assist an elderly man
who asked Herbert to tie his
shoelaces for him.
Harry Ramharack: Each one of us
has the capacity to do a good deed
to a fellow human being today. Add
purpose to your existence without
the showiness or expectation of a
Karen Kallan-Ramlal: Great job, we
need more young men like this to
balance our society.
Pretam Ryan Khemraj: Well done
bro, keep it up.
Esther Pilgrim: Blessings, son.
Sundra Deonarine: Well done.
Vanessa Gail Harris: Awesome,
Shonel Kingston: Great good things
still happen in that country.
Bobby Ramlochan: I wanna say
thanks very much to the parents
of this young gentle man & to the
young man himself for being what
he had displayed today to his elders
and I pray to god to give the health
and strength to continue on mission
make your family proud. Son great
things come to those who do good.
Ingrid Nicholls: This is what I am
talking about! Continue to highlight
our youths when they do positive
things. Keep it up Guardian news-
Rita Samdath: Proud of you and your
Nalini Nagassar: Better this than a
fight...kudos to this teenager. We

Bianca DeFour: Keep up the good
work young man---we need more
young people like you in society.
Shivani Cindy Maharaj: We need to
showcase more of young people.
Well done Darius.
Nigel Singh: This young man's par-
ents have raised him as a child of
honour. I guarantee you when he
leaves school he will not be a maxi
tout, criminal or a drain on society.
Praise God there are still good par-
ents and children out there
Phyllis Lewis: Comes from good

parents. You are doing an excellent
Joyce Sahadat: An example to all.
God bless you always.
for prison toilets
Acting Commissioner of
Prisons Cecil Duke said
yesterday $55 million was
needed to install flushing toilets
in the remand prisons.
Lydia Salazar-John: I agree with
flushing toilets but $55 million?
Come on man! Better build over
the entire Remand Yard with that...
doesn't that make sense people?!
Joan Ramoutar: Let the prisoners
do the work...them toilets must be
lined in gold.
Kevin Powlette: I'm sure half of that
price is going towards corruption.
Stacy Cadogan: What dotishness I
reading - $55 million?!
Neil Mohammed: I am sure it have
one or two plumbers on the inside,
give them the wuk and pay a stipend
to the family.
Kishore Khillawan: So wait $55 mil-
lion you say? Are you installing
these toilets for dignitaries?
Mimi Bocas: Oh please! You think it
is the last regime in power? Don't
try that! And come again, this time
with a true price.
Bobby Gokool: I will do it for $10 mil.
Betty Barbour: Are the toilets gold
plated? This is as much as it would
cost to build a block of flats with
kitchen, 2 bathrooms and 3 bed-
rooms. Better do that instead.
Chounksy Chounks: Am pretty much
sure this cost can be reduced. If they
utilise the skilled inmates in our
prison system, the cost of labour
will definitely be reduced! As to giv-
ing inmates proper toilet facilities,
this is greatly needed! I anxiously
await the closure of that facility on
Frederick St, No one deserves to live
like that---guilty until proven.
"Worrying is car-
load with today's
two days at once.
It is moving into
of time. Worrying
doesn't empty to-
morrow of its sor-
row, it empties to-
day of its strength."
