Angels against animal cruelty

Dear Editor, During this holy week one should give some thought to man’s feelings toward animals. In the Christian Bible, Proverbs 12:10 states that: “A righteous man has regard for the life of his beast,” and Psalm 145:9 teaches that “The Lord is good to all, and his compassion rests upon all his creatures.” The Bible forbids cruelty to animals in Deuteronomy (22:10, 25:4) and says they are to share in the Sabbath rest (Exodus 20:10, Deut 5:14).

The gov’t should have written the Amaila roads contractor outlining the slippages and requesting a viable plan to get the project back on track

Dear Editor, In an article which appeared in KN on April 21 on the above captioned subject, Dr. Roger Luncheon, Head of the Presidential Secretariat stated that the Amaila Falls Road project was ‘hopelessly behind schedule’ which in reality is an admission of failure by Contractor Motilall to perform in a timely manner.

The GLTA never demanded a percentage of the Sport Ministry’s budget

Dear Editor, I confess to an inability to discern whether Mr. Neil Kumar’s response (S/N April 21, All expenditure under the Sports and Art Development Fund can be accounted for) to Business Page (BP) of April 17 is a measure of an innate tendency to mislead and obfuscate, a misunderstanding or misrepresentation of what was written coupled with a failure to distinguish between the President of the Guyana (Lawn) Tennis Association and Christopher Ram the incumbent.

Hindu leaders in New York must come together and lobby for space to conduct shore rituals

Dear Editor, With regards to your news item, as carried by the New York Times, on the difficulties Guyanese (Indo-Caribbean) Hindus face and the problems they present in worshipping at the Rockaway Bay area (Guyanese Hindu Rituals Lead to Clash …SN Apr 22), this has been an ongoing problem for over two decades with Hindu leaders not actively pursuing a practical solution or educating worshippers about environmental concerns. 

NIS told me that contributions were never paid in for me

Dear Editor, I am a widow and I am trying to contact Mr David Fennell, former President of Golden Star Resources Ltd, High Street, Georgetown (closed down) and now executive chairman of the Manganese Company, Matthews Ridge, Region 1, to ask him why the company failed to pay my National Insurance Scheme contributions, even though NIS was deducted from my salary from January, 1991 to April, 1995 as a security guard.
