ECG service was suspended because suppliers sent wrong paper

Dear Editor, In response to a letter in your newspaper dated December 15, 2010 and captioned ‘ECG service at Georgetown Hospital not available because of “lack of paper,”’ management would first like to thank the author for highlighting the problem and must advise that it exists because the local suppliers of the paper required for the machine had supplied the incorrect type, inter alia, and as a result the hospital had to source it from an overseas vendor, but it is yet to be delivered.

The Main Big Lime is not a credit to the Minister or government

The aircraft in the SN reports of Dec 12, 14 is privately owned and operated; Air Services Limited has no operational control over it

Dear Editor, I refer to your front page story of Sunday, December 12, 2010 headlined ‘Cessna landing in August at 63 Beach raises serious questions.’ What is unusual is that this story, a follow-up of an incident which took place more than four months ago, did not benefit from adequate follow-up investigation, eg, was permission granted properly for the aircraft to land at the 63 Beach, interview with the military heads who expressed surprise, response from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority, response from the Minister who allegedly gave permission, etc.
