May 14, 2023 – By Stanley Greaves


Today was payday. Waterfront workers received wages from the pay office of companies. My Father’s was Sandbach Parker Ltd. Sometimes when he was working elsewhere I had to take his tag, a piece of round copper stamped with a number to receive his pay. Men in the line would ask questions about my identity then send me to the head of it.

Women consorts and common- in- law wives would be waiting outside to secure the household money. Most men usually went to rumshops to celebrate the end of a work week. Huston’s Rum Shop and Bar was conveniently situated in Robb Street between Main and Water Streets near Sandbach Parker. When my Father came home I would examine his pocket. If the rounded end of a big can of sardines or salmon in tomato sauce revealed itself I knew that he had earned twelve dollars, a good week. I eagerly awaited Sunday morning.

GUYANA: Short Story:- When I was in the Diamond business in Guyana – By Royden V Chan.

Stories of incidents I experienced and people I encountered during my life and when I was in the Diamond business in Guyana.

By Royden V Chan.

I will be 91 years old in August this year 2023 and throughout the years, from my childhood, my working in the diamond business and to my retirement, I have experienced interesting incidents, and came into contact with diverse people who impacted my life with both good and bad impressions.
I think that I should write about these people and the incidents I experienced before I pass on.

GUYANA: Governing Georgetown – Editorial By Stabroek News

Governing Georgetown

City of Georgetown North-western section

The capital city has always represented a challenge for a PPP government. With its predilection for controlling every conceivable political space, the fact that the most important urban region in the country does not fall directly under its sway has been a source of considerable vexation for it. The southern wards of Georgetown are the PNC’s traditional heartland, and its best efforts notwithstanding, Freedom House has never made much of an inroad into changing voting patterns there. Its response has been, therefore, to prevent the City Council from functioning, and then to swoop in occasionally and perform a task which falls under the municipality’s remit in order to demonstrate that only the government can run the capital effectively.          Continue reading

A Nation Of Enemies Cannot Stand – LUCIAN K. TRUSCOTT IV

      Something big is going to have to happen in the USA if we stand any chance at all of dealing with the enormous, even planet-threatening challenges that face us.  I thought of this over the weekend as news emerged from the limping-along CPAC convention in Baltimore that Trump had gone beyond his usual them-and-us rhetoric he has spewed at his campaign rallies and most recently in his announcement that he’s running for president.

Speaking to a room filled with MAGA hat wearing fans and booths at the edges selling all things Trump right down to and including a gold-plated bracelet comprised of the letters of his name, the former president used war-like rhetoric to make his appeal.      Continue reading

GUYANA: The Barima-Mora Passage – video

Comments on YouTube:

Guyana’s most intact mangrove ecosystems are found within a very special place in Region One, known as the Barima-Mora Passage. Beyond its rich mangrove population, this area is home to a number of IUCN red listed species, rich biodiversity, and incredible indigenous culture. This documentary aims to raise awareness to the urgent need to protect such ecosystems, that are ultimately essential to ensuring that Guyana’s people and coastal biodiversity remain resilient to the threats of climate change.
