Good Hope, Hand-en-Veldt Mahaica sideline dam in bad condition for over 15 years

Dear Editor,

The Good Hope, Hand-en-Veldt Mahaica sideline dam (Jagg/Saridam) needs resurfacing with bitumen. It has been in a bad condition for over 15 years. Its only access bridge has two broken boards.

The sideline dam is the only one in the area that interconnects directly with the old road and the East Coast Highway. No one of substance lives in this area, which is why I am highlighting this problem from a layman’s perspective on behalf of the community. I am hoping that the RDC Region 4 or central government does something about it. Dozens of vehicles traverse this dam daily.

I want to thank you for publishing my letter regarding my landline/internet malfunction on August 21; two days later four technicians came and fixed it.


Yours faithfully,

Jaio M Ramcharitar


The microbial quality of water of the Fyrish Well is intact

Dear Editor, The Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) wishes to respond to a letter published in the daily newspapers regarding the location of the Fyrish Well in Region 6, East Berbice/Corentyne.

There were 735 vacancies advertised by the TSC not 3472

Dear Editor, My letter in Stabroek News of April 19, which has the headline: ‘Totals?’ was intended as a preliminary comment on a letter by Mr EB John in SN dated April 18, 2018 with the headline: ‘There are 3472 vacancies in education delivery.’ Mr John’s letter seemed to me at first glance as an attempt to fill a gap arising out of my failure to send at least one letter to Stabroek News commenting on the Vacancy Notice published by the Teaching Service Commission this year.

GRA has not updated its website re: drivers’ licences

Dear Editor, A friend of mine who recently migrated to the United States informed me of a situation that exposes the ineptitude of one of our primary governmental offices.

Does the GPF have a section responsible for traffic lights?

Dear Editor, Traffic symbols, signs, and rules are most important for both pedestrians and vehicular users’ safety.
