- Dear Editor, I could not help noticing the recent debate in the opinion sections of both newspapers on homosexuality. Miguel Arrindell seemed to have lit a fire that would not seem to go out and most of the letters from other readers were vehemently attacking his opinions and labeling him as a hatemonger.

National Alliance Councilman George Pantophlet says it is time for government to step up. The people of this island are feeling tremendous pressure as the prices of goods and services continue to increase by the minute. Government should convene an urgent meeting with all stakeholders and together make an effort to ease the burden.

The councilman said that he read an article about the government of Cameroon canceling the purchase of government vehicles to cut cost. They passed legislation to increase civil servants salaries by 15%. Additional legislation was passed to exclude import duties or tariffs on basic necessities. This was all being done to offset the negative impact of high oil prices that are affecting the purchasing power of the people. This decision of the Cameroon government will definitely reflect a huge reduction in income. They even made some 15,000 persons working on contract permanent.

The staff of the Census Office would like to convey our sincere condolences to the family and friends of our colleague Stanley Gumbs. Stanley will be direly missed. He has marked our hearts forever with his impeccable mannerism and demeanor. His departure from this earth was so sudden and unfair but we know that he is in a better place, exerting the same politeness that became his trademark in and out of the office.

Stanley WE MISS YOU!!!!!
