Dear Editor, Sunday evening last, September 21, I happened upon an interesting conversation moderated by Carolyn Walcott.

Dear Editor, This is more ‘eyepass’ from Baishanlin, which has built a 130-kilometre road without following proper government protocol. Mr James Singh, Commisioner of Forests, had claimed that before Baishanlin would be allowed to harvest any tree, it had to meet strict requirements: “They have to have an approved Annual Operation Plan, in addition to that, they have to do a 100% pre-harvest inventory of the areas that are being logged, and only after we verify that the information is factual and correct, then we give them permission – and they have to follow all the code of practices that we have – including log targeting.” Has Mr Singh summoned the officials of Baishanlin to make sure that those requirements were adhered to?

Items were contributions to the Bayrock Community Centre

Dear Editor, Attention is drawn to cricket umpire, Mr Henry Farnum’s letter, ‘Sharma Solomon must support the genuine cricket officials in Upper Demerara’ (Kaieteur News, September 24) and ‘Sharma Solomon should not have accepted money, bats on behalf of unheard of Upper Demerara Cricket Committee’ (Stabroek News, September 26).
