ALWYN NICHOLSON, LEROY SANCHO, HARRY SAUL ……….3 CHARISMATIC VILLAGERS DIE.
Friday September 11th all of Litchfield in the Tempie /Seafield village district sill come out in mournful pride to lay down gracefully an authentic and charismatic villager, Alwyn Prince Nicholson.
Alwyn is a remigrant who returned home with his family recently. He had a pre-existing medical condition, and at the dawn of September returned to us for medical attention. Reports suggest that the very next morning on the 2nd of September, Alwyn did not rise and was pronounced dead by medical technicians.
Alwyn was a personal friend and very influential shopkeeper, rice farmer and citizen in Litchfield.

My parents sent me to West Berbice for safety and Alwyn introduced me to cutting rice with grass knife and ploughing the rice fields with oxen. I also learnt to throw a cast net under his wise tutelage. Continue reading

Some businessmen, farmers, car and mini bus operators will get further relief with the reintroduction of the Torani and Makouria passenger vessels that will ferry vehicles across the river.
Race has been injected into the Berbice Bridge tolls fiasco as opposition leader Bharrat Jagdeo is fanning the flames of functional non cooperation. Some farmers cannot handle the narrow mindedness of Jagdeo and are fasting to death………a Hindu practise called santara. Continue reading
