Father’s Day is here once again and many homes and families will be busy making all the necessary preparation for this special occasion. I know that for some there will be mixed feelings since they may have lost that special person or he may not be at home presently.

We live, eat, and breathe domestic violence scenarios out here in T&T. The ‘I must have a boyfriend/I must have a girlfriend syndrome’ is eclipsed by the many May to December love affairs that end in tears.

Labour day will be celebrated once again this week on June 19, 2018, to be exact and it was declared an annual national holiday in the year 1973. It marks the anniversary of the day of the Butler oilfield riots which took place in the year 1937.

With all that we are hearing being spent on the problem of the ever-growing crime situation in T&T, the results are far below par.

We regularly have marches by concerned citizens protesting the rise in crime and criminality throughout the country. They never appear to be biased regarding political affiliation, religion or race.

There has been public disquiet and a brouhaha about high public offices and pressing social matters within recent months—most notably the selection and approval of a Commissioner of Police and Deputy Commissioner of Police.

I read where members of the local television industry are hoping that the Trinidad & Tobago Telecommunications Authority will “put a hand” to help save the FTA (free to air) television industry, citing the number of streaming boxes as the main culprit.

For the past two weeks, the word EXPECTATION in relation to crime has been playing in my head. When or wherever in T&T there is an upsurge in crime, mainly murders, the police divisional heads say to the public we have increased patrols in the areas.

On Sunday afternoon at the Queen’s Park Oval, I joined the celebrations with ecstatic cricket fans in the aftermath of the West Indies’ convincing victory over the Sri Lankans by 226 runs.

The individual who insists on keeping large amounts of cash stored at home is playing a game of Russian roulette. With no security cameras installed this game is doubly not in your favour. Believing that nobody else knows that you keep vast amounts of unsecured cash is suicidal.

Roman Catholic priest Father Ian Taylor made a bold declaration approximately one year ago. He called for the death penalty to be reinstated to kill murderers. This was condemned almost immediately by Roman Catholic Archbishop Joseph Harris.

How much does a gold chain that is maybe ten times the thickness of a regular one cost?

How much do gold teeth cost?

How much do those really fancy brand name sneakers, hats, belts, jeans and jerseys cost?

How much do multiple body tattoos cost?

I am calling on the President and Prime Minister to revoke, immediately, the appointments of the present members of the Police Service Commission that so unashamedly bungled the selection of a Commissioner of Police, and set us back in a process that should have been completed years ago.

While this letter might be a little delayed it is still pertinent to my point.

I want to express my deepest appreciation to the organisers of the We beat celebrations in St James for their continued inclusion of traditional Carnival characters. Traditional mas is something that is very near and dear to me and it has so much positive potential with the right imagination.
