Not often one can say that excellent service is received at a company who you need to do business with. However, this is very true of Mileage Mack in Mucurapo.

On each and every visit for repairs/service I have always experienced incredible service at Mileage Mack. Years ago when I initially went I thought it was necessary to contact “the boss” first. However, I learned very quickly that it was not necessary. Each and every one you encounter at Mileage Mack are courteous, helpful, responsible, offering the best service with a smile.

They excel each and every time. They give genuine and excellent advice as to whether you need to deal with a problem immediately, or to be careful and watch it for a while. I have always left there feeling very confident that my vehicle is well taken care of.

My sincere thanks to each of you at Mileage Mack for a service offered second to none. I know for sure that Mr Mack senior was proud of you before and continue to be proud of you now.

Keep up the good work, it is sincerely a pleasure as a senior citizen to visit this company and be so well treated. God’s blessings to you all.

For months this newspaper has been urging the Ministry of Health to initiate a vaccine awareness campaign based on a scientific ­survey of public attitudes in preparation for its arrival.

An article dated March 15, 2021, on listed 21 countries that had suspended the use of the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, mainly due to blood-clotting concerns.

In spite of the best efforts of Police Commissioner Gary Griffith and former national security minister Stuart Young, crime continues to be the number one enemy of people and country.

In my humble view, the continuing fight against criminals requires the intervention of level-headed, objective and bipartisan professionals. As such, I was grossly disappointed with the appointment of Fitzgerald Hinds as the new Minister of National Security, and could see no advantage in this move.

A quick search for the meaning of this crime turned up the following opening definition: human trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of people through force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting them for profit.

There is so much to be gleaned from the Opposition Leader’s backhanded tribute to recently deceased Minister Franklin Khan on Monday night.

It speaks not only to her character, but to that of the political party she leads as well. As the saying goes: “If you listen carefully enough, someone will tell you exactly the kind of person they are.”

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un... “Surely we belong to Almighty God and Him shall we return”.

Waajihatul Islaamiyyah (The Islamic Front) is deeply saddened by the death of the Minister of Energy and Energy Industries, Senator the Honourable Franklin Khan, Member of Parliament for Ortoire-Mayaro, and chairman of the ruling People’s National Movement.
