Businessmen, others should help government in reopening National Service

Dear Editor,

I am appealing to the businessmen in Guyana big and small, to assist the Government of Guyana in opening back the Guyana National Service. The youths when leaving school will be able to join the National Service, and learn to read and write, and learn a trade, which will enable them to seek and obtain a job, because they would then be skilled. Many youths today are getting mixed up in crime, because they cannot find a job, and many parents cannot afford to upkeep, or maintain them, because they are also out of work on account of some illness or the other. Oil is coming, as is gas, while the Guyana hydro will go into operation. However, these companies will need skilled workers; without skills these youths cannot get a decent job or none at all.

We need crime off the streets so that tourists, businesses, and people will be able to live in and walk the streets of Georgetown and elsewhere without being afraid to leave their home or go to the shops to buy the things necessary to survive. We are depending on businessmen and others to come forward and help the people of Guyana, we need you now more than ever, may God bless you all for helping.

Yours faithfully,

Llewelyn Gray

Profoundly concerned about Town Clerk King’s understanding of the workings of Chap 28:01, general domestic law

Dear Editor, The Town Clerk’s letter of February 16, 2018 in SN, `As Town Clerk I only act on the basis of legal authority’ is  yet another demonstration of his disqualification for office.

Political leaders on both sides need to take responsibility for the current oil and gas agreements

Dear Editor, The media need to be commended for its continuous effort in bringing to the Guyanese people the truth as it relates to the contracts signed by the Government of Guyana with the oil companies.

Letter by Councillor Kuppen is riddled with inaccuracies

Dear Editor, Please refer to a letter which appeared in the Saturday, February 17, of Stabroek News captioned ‘Town Clerk is in control with the blessing of the Mayor and some Councillors.’ As we examined the contents of the letter written by the Councillor, we recognized that it is riddled with inaccuracies and it is not a true representation of the facts.

Impressed by publication on early childhood development

Dear Editor, Influenced as I am and have been since my early career as a school teacher that the focus of our basic educational pursuits should be both academic and attitudinal, I was recently impressed by a publication I chanced upon in my daughter’s home in Toronto (she herself is a School Superintendent with the Toronto District School Board).
