Dying Happy with Dennie

As he celebrates his first twenty five years on the planet, Cochese Tyler Dennie is peering far into the distant future for channels through which he can navigate  both his business endeavors and his  life in the creation of a wholesome future for himself, his community and his country.

As a young child who “liked to drive”, the enterprising Tyler with a personal push to be always “better”,  first  found himself organizing a group of boys with pails, soap water and rags into a car-wash business  in the east Port of Spain “ghetto” community where he was born.

Port of Spain Rising

Trinidad and Tobago’s capital city is taking the high road to resurgence and renewal as the Caribbean’s future “City of Festivals”.

Located  in  Trinidad on the southern-most-point of the lesser Antilles island chain, Port of Spain was the convenient  entry-point for invading European forces depositing various strains of people on  Amerindian-occupied land first called  “Cumucurapo”. 

When Death Becomes a Regular Feature Of Life

t’s not at all amusing but very funny how – at this special time of one’s life –  Death has become such a regular feature. Who would believe that barely two days after  I helped my neighbour “Jinx”* push his old car, he  died of a heart attack?

Incidentally, the way how I got the news of Jinx’s passing was also cause for discomfiting consternation tinged with humour. Or as the old people say: “Thing to cry for, you laughing”.

I got a wake-up call from Scobie, a long-time a community resident who reacted to my “Hello” in a hesitant, diffident tone.

“…I don’t know how to say this…but…”, he said solemnly, “ …I hear you dead!”

FIFA Goliath of Football Meets TT David

FIFA – the all-powerful Goliath of world soccer – seems in danger of outplaying itself at its own game amid the eruption of a major scandal involving recalcitrant member Trinidad and Tobago as the proverbial David in a contest involving the giant versus a pint-sized opponent on the football battle field
