Choiseul fishermen get assistance

Ever since the construction of the Fisheries Complex, the Choiseul fishermen have had their fair share of problems dealing with the perrenial accumulation of sand in the pond. Whose fault? The designer or nature?
Webby, a fisherman in the village, kept saying that the design is all wrong, and that there should be room for a continuous flow of the tide through the pond. Can't say much about that. I'm no technician.
However, it is common knowledge that the accummulation of sand in the pond have angered the fishermen to a point when they shut down the operations of the Complex during a strike last year.
Bousquet has always sympathized with the fishermen's plight, and most time have been instrumental in getting the sand removed, most times at the cost of over $25,000.00. But the problem keeps recurring and recurring, causing more frustrations for the helpless fishermen.
Until a permanent solution can be found, the Rep, a visionary as he is, had to find a way to minimise this sand problem. It affected the fishermen's livelihood. I remember him (the Rep) at pains with himself, contemplating on a solution to assist the fishermen.
During discussions with the Village Council Bousquet mentioned the efforts he has been putting,through his Ministry to get a fire truck,an excavator and a dump truck for the constituency. The donor, the Japanese Government, agreed to the two latter choices.
At a signing and presentation ceremony held at the conference room of the Fisheries Complex, the Counsellor of the Embassy of Japan in Trinidad and Tobago, Mr. Masanobu Yoshii, jointly signed documents with the Village Council and the Rep and presented a cheque of US $130,000.00 to the Village Council for the purchase of the excavator and dump truck.
In his address Bousquet to the audience and by extension the fishermen, that this gift is only a temporary measure which will not solve the problem, but only give some relief. A comprehensive study, he continued is being commisioned to find ways to solve the problem.
The Chairperson of Council thanked Mr. Yoshii for this generous donation from his Government, while Councilor Stanislas presented a plaque to the Counsellor.
The truck and excavator will be under the supervison of the Village Council, who will be responsible to hire operators and maintain the equipment.
Is there any doubt that Bousquet real cares for his people?

Reunion problem to be solved

One has often wondered what the previous District Rep did in relation to the flooding that was occurring near Sally's place. For nine years he slept on the matter. Questions! Was he in bed with the owner of the land on the opposite side of Sally, or was the guy a party hack that he could not be touched?Did he ever approach his government to address this matter? Just asking questions.
   For nine long years,especially when it rains children on the Le Riche,Savanne George side, attending the Reunion Primary School could not cross the high water which accummulated in this area, to get to the school. They had to go round through the village to get to school.  Motorists had to turn back and take another route.Wasn't that pathetic?
Bousquet has taken up the challenge in two phases. 1. He as gotten drains dug to alleviate the problem (pics show that) and 2. Presently works are underway to pave these drains to carry the water to another exit (pics to follow).
   This is a man of vision. When we talk about being in the interest of the youth,Bousquet stands out head and shoulders above any politians to ever represent Choiseul. A fact!

Bousquet acknowledges Choiseul Police

At a ceremony to present an excavator and a dump truck to the Choiseul Village Council Bousquet took some time during the ceremony to present a gift to the Station Sargeant on behalf of the Choiseul Police.
A desktop computer, a computer desk, and an executive chair was the gift.
In making the presentation Bousquet showered praise on the Police for the good work they have been doing in keeping the crime rate in his constituency very low.
The new station sargeant, born and bred in the district Dacretin to be precise, has vowed to make Choiseul a safe place to live in. He has also promised to do his job without any favour or preference..
Inspite of being a junior to four of his Choiseul crew there is harmony and coperation among them. One can visibly see a village patrol on a daily basis as well as patrol in outskirts of the village.
Bousquet has promised to vsit the police station on a regular basis to get updates on the workings of the law enforcers.
Ps. Keep logging to this site to get an update to the excavator/dump truck presentation ceremony.

Another Massive project

Bousquet is firing on all eight cylinders at present. In the works is a massive project in the Industry community where the Industry road is being linked to the Delcer road.
 The entrance on the Industry end is just below Dominique's body-work shop,and the exit on the Delcer side is a little above Jack's disco.
The residents living between these two road are impressed with the work being done. At my last visit to the area new pipes were being laid for the persons who already had pipied borne water... during the excavation a lot of these pipes where damages. Big boulders which lay in the centre of the roadway are being jacked hammered t make way for vehiles. Isn't that amazing?
It clearly show that Choiseul is developing at a rate never seen before. Can you imagine being by Enbar Caco Disco and want to head over to Jacks... a short route,compared to driving all the way up to the school and back down. Progress galore!!!!!

The La Maze Tsunami

FeIjmnBCS-U/s320/Piton%2B1-796252.jpg" border="0" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5583564847974225538" />

One comment on the blog did make mention of Rufus making a footpath for just three votes. Dedan reponded to this annonymous writer by tellig her (notice I said her and not him) that it is three votes that they lose.
Well presently there is a tsunami of works going on in La Maze paving the way for surfacing of the road from the La Maze - Montete junction to the dead end inside La Maze.
This communtiy road has been an eye sore for years. Now 'the man for Choiseul' has come to put things right. Drainage works are nearing completion. Over ten contractors, hiring over a total of seventy workers are on site putting the final touches for preparation to pave the community road. ' PROGRESS. '
This for Ms.. Annonymous. Is this for votes as well? If yes, kindly say the totol. My calculation is, all of La Maze.
Guess you and your cronies running scared big time now.Take care that this Tsunami drown the Lorne's Labour crew.

Domestic Violence and Abuse

Today is recognised as International Women's Day
. We at this blog thought that this article taken from the net might be of great help to our women

Signs of Abuse and Abusive Relationships

Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Emotional abuse is often minimized, yet it can leave deep and lasting scars.

Noticing and acknowledging the warning signs and symptoms of domestic violence and abuse is the first step to ending it. No one should live in fear of the person they love. If you recognize yourself or someone you know in the following warning signs and descriptions of abuse, don’t hesitate to reach out. There is help available.

Understanding domestic violence and abuse

Domestic abuse, also known asspousal abuse, occurs when one person in an intimate relationship or marriage tries to dominate and control the other person. Domestic abuse that includes physical violence is called domestic violence.

Domestic violence and abuse are used for one purpose and one purpose only: to gain and maintain total control over you. An abuser doesn’t “play fair.” Abusers use fear, guilt, shame, and intimidation to wear you down and keep you under his or her thumb. Your abuser may also threaten you, hurt you, or hurt those around you.

Domestic violence and abuse does not discriminate. It happens among heterosexual couples and in same-sex partnerships. It occurs within all age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, and economic levels. And while women are more commonly victimized, men are also abused—especially verbally and emotionally, although sometimes even physically as well. The bottom line is that abusive behavior is never acceptable, whether it’s coming from a man, a woman, a teenager, or an older adult. You deserve to feel valued, respected, and safe.

Recognizing abuse is the first step to getting help

Domestic abuse often escalates from threats and verbal abuse to violence. And while physical injury may be the most obvious danger, the emotional and psychological consequences of domestic abuse are also severe. Emotionally abusive relationships can destroy your self-worth, lead to anxiety and depression, and make you feel helpless and alone. No one should have to endure this kind of pain—and your first step to breaking free is recognizing that your situation is abusive. Once you acknowledge the reality of the abusive situation, then you can get the help you need.

Signs of an abusive relationship

There are many signs of an abusive relationship. The most telling sign is fear of your partner. If you feel like you have to walk on eggshells around your partner—constantly watching what you say and do in order to avoid a blow-up—chances are your relationship is unhealthy and abusive. Other signs that you may be in an abusive relationship include a partner who belittles you or tries to control you, and feelings of self-loathing, helplessness, and desperation.

Another footpath in Delcer

Residents lower down Jacks' Disco to my mind really needed this footpath. I walked the route and could not believe where I was walking.
The paved one-lane 1.5M wide path with start at the bottom of Jacks' Disco, near his sister and end at the main road higher up the the other disco at the top of the sea.
While the contractors were quantifying the project many residents were expressing joy.
One female resident remarked, 'nous tout en kai la, kou sa la say Rufus nous ka wei.'
May be this is her way of repaying for the great work to be constructed right infront of her yard.
This is a well deserved project by all means.
Once again uplifting the standard of living of the people.
