Trinidad panman left disappointed

A leading figure in the pan movement in neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago has left Grenada with a bitter taste in the mouth following the cancellation of the 2017 Panorama championship in Spicemas 2017. Ex-player with former TNT Panorama champions, Trinidad All Stars Steel Orchestra, Sylvester Enile, is dumfounded over the decision by the authorities to allow a show involving a private promoter to take prominence over a national event like Panorama. “This year I was very disappointed with the way the Carnival Committee handled things because I am of the belief that the Pan, Mas and kaiso (are) bringing revenue … Continue reading

Time to review Spicemas

President of the Grenada Steelbands Association (GSBA), David “Peck” Edwards has called for a review of all three major shows that form part of the Spicemas festival on the island. According to Edwards, there has been a significant decline in patriotism for not only Panorama but also the entire Carnival product and things need to be done differently from next year. “I would be the first to say that we shouldn’t continue Panorama as is”, he said. He cited the need for the island “to re-examine all our national shows and to reinvigorate life with something new and more dynamic … Continue reading

The spiritual Wrestling Match

The Grenada Christian Political Party (G.C.P.P.) will like to declare to all that its founder, party policies, references and sayings are not out of hate for any person or persons. All G.C.P.P hate is directed against the spirits that influence the people of the opposing political parties. This correct direction of hate comes from the Bible. It’s written in Ephesians Chpt. 6 verse 12; for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against power, against the rulers of the darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. G.C.P.P knows and understands that we don’t wrestle … Continue reading

Boycotted for a Knighthood

Geoffrey Boycott is a BBC cricket commentator. He was an England cricketer for 24 years. Over that period, he scored 8,114 runs in 108 Test matches for England and was the first England cricketer to pass 8,000 Test runs. For this accomplishment, he received the award of Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) from Her Majesty The Queen, through the UK National Honours Committee. But, he clearly felt that the award was not of a sufficiently high rank and he merited more. It is not a secret that Boycott hankers after a Knighthood and he has publicly … Continue reading

A good catch!!!

It has long been coming but it is now a reality – trade unionist/retired civil servant, sportsman and journalist Rae Roberts is now into frontline politics. Roberts is “a good catch” for any political party in the country but more so the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) which is on the rebuild following its humiliating 15-0 defeat in the 2013 polls. It was several months ago that THE NEW TODAY carried a front-page story in which it identified the then Labour Senator along with attorney-at-law, Claudette Joseph as two high profile persons who will be on the Congress slate … Continue reading
