Christmas will be coming in Feb-
ruary for La Brea resident Errol Lee
who is eagerly awaiting his chance to
bake his long-awaited Christmas ham
on Thursday at his Coffee Beach
On Sunday Lee, 76, and all other oil
spill affected residents along Coffee
Beach received formal notices from
Petrotrin informing that they will be
cleared to resume cooking at their
homes on Thursday.
Lee, who smiled broadly as he dis-
played the Petrotrin letter at his home
on Sunday, said he was eagerly awaiting
the opportunity to savour his Christmas
ham he could not bake because
Petrotrin restricted open flames in the
area after the December 17 oil spill.
"The ham in my freezer, it still good.
I waiting since Christmas to bake that
ham. Thursday we waiting to do we
thing. I ain t taste no ham this Christ-
mas so I waiting to bake that ham. I
will be seeing Christmas in
February...better late than never," Lee
He said when residents collected
their lunch time meals they were given
letters from Petrotrin notifying them
that meals will be discontinued tomor-
The letter, dated January 31, 2014,
titled Discontinuation of Meals, stated:
"Air quality reading over the last few
days at different times and in different
parts of the community have indicated
that there is no risk associated with
cooking and using your stoves once
again. As such, we will no longer be
providing meals after dinner on
Wednesday February 5, 2014."
The oil company, in the letter, said
hampers would be distributed to res-
idents at lunchtime tomorrow to assist
them with the preparation of their
Lee said he was elated when he read
"I feel very, very happy that we would
be getting back to normal again. After
Wednesday that is it for them. I am
satisfied with the clean-up. I could
congratulate them for the good work.
fella who like my white rice. I doh like
coloured rice like fried rice and saffron
rice that they was giving we," he said.
The Petrotrin letter informed resi-
dents that the major containment and
recovery process has been completed
and "we now enter into the surveillance
and remediation phase."
The letter stated that while Petrotrin
personnel would no longer be stationed
at Coffee Beach, it would continue to
operate the medical station at La Brea
Community Centre. The company said
a corporate communication officer
would be present at the facility daily
to treat with any concerns the residents
Petrotrin apologised for the "hard-
ship" the residents experience for the
"We know that the past few weeks
have been difficult for you and we do
apologise for the discomfort and incon-
venience you experienced. Much of the
oil spill and its related issues are now
behind us and most things in your com-
munity either would have been, or, are
returning to the state they were prior
to the spill," the letter stated.
When the T&T Guardian visited Cof-
fee Beach there was no sign of a clean-
up crew along the beach. While the
rocks along the shore were still oil-
stained the sand on the shore was a
rich, natural brown hue.
Even the sea gulls and pelicans
appeared to be pleased with the beach
clean-up as they chomped down on
fishes they caught in the sea water.
Lee said the return of the birds had
been an encouraging sign for residents
because when the oil began washing
ashore on December 17 all the wildlife
on the beach had disappeared.
"The birds come back by the hun-

dreds. I am happy to see them everyday. The birds
coming back---that is a good sign. It means that
things alright out there in the water," he said.
Lee said the water at the beach has returned to
a pleasing condition and he admitted that he had
resumed his early morning and late night swims.
"When I cannot sleep I get up and go and take a
swim and come back. After that you does sleep like
a baby," he laughed.
Residents' health condition improving
Coffee Beach resident Terrilisa Modeste, 21, a
mother of one, also shared Lee s excitement that res-
idents would now be able to cook their meals.
"It feel good, I just excited to cook my own food.
I have not decided what we will cook yet," she said.
Modeste said she was not completely satisfied with
Petrotrin s clean-up since the mangrove still have to
be cleaned. She said during high tide the oil on the
mangrove washes up onto the roadway and was get-
ting into some of the residents yard.
"Right now it s high tide time and the water coming
onto the road, crossing the road and ending up on
people yard and we still getting the oil smell. One
or two people still have sore throat. No one else fall
ill, most of the kids back out to school now. The
EMA (Environmental Management Authority) did
not tell us what is in the air yet. We are still uncom-
fortable. We have to cope with it," she said.
