Carnival Stage Is Being REDESIGNED For 2013

THE QUEEN’S Park Savannah stage is being redesigned ahead of next year’s Carnival, the National Carnival Commission CEO, Clarence Moe, revealed yesterday.

Moe made the disclosure as he was appearing before a Parliamentary committee on the NCC. At the committee hearing – the Joint Select Committee (Group 1) – Independent Senator Harold Ramkissoon expressed concern that the NCC had yet to tender for the stage, two months shy of Carnival which is in February. 

“There was need for redesign and we are awaiting the Ministry of Works for an indication of what we are going to do but we still have time since construction would be minimal,” Moe said in response. “We are still awaiting word from the evaluation as to the steel as it relates to the stage,” he said. 

Ramkissoon called for a forensic audit of the National Carnival Commission (NCC) as he queried million-dollar disparities in figures for rentals given to the Parliamentary committee. 

He also expressed concern over the apparently rushed and last-minute issuing of invitations to tender for the construction of stands in the Queen’s Park Savannah – including the North Stand – ahead of Carnival in next February. 

In relation to rentals, the senator expressed alarm that the NCC told the Parliament’s Joint Select Committee (Group 1) that its rentals totalled $250,000 annually, while other documents showed that for 2011 and 2012, the total rentals were $7.7 million and $5 million, respectively. 

“That is quite a contradiction to what was given us,” the senator said. “That is also quite a lot in rental fees. The NCC must explore the possibility of moving some of its offices to the Savannah and cut down the rent. These are really high rental fees.” 

He noted the rental of offices on Cipriani Boulevard alone accounted for $1.5 million in 2011. 

Ramkissoon expressed worry that Carnival is in about two months’ time and the NCC is only now tendering for the Savannah facilities. 

“I am concerned about all of this rush to tender contracts with respect to this year. You are not advertising. It is already December and presumably this process has to be wrapped up by January because Carnival is early February. There is a very narrow window to get this thing done. This is not good enough,” he said. 

Of the rushed tendering, Ramkissoon warned, “It opens the door to corruption. These things should have been done six months ago.”

It was converse outlet in the moment of turning away prada outlet that I somehow learned, without looking, that coach outlet Mrs. Brissenden had also immediately moved. I nike air max wanted to look and yet had my reasons for not appearing to do it baseball bats too quickly; new balance in spite louboutin,louboutin outlet,louboutin outlet italia of which I found burberry my longchamp friends, even after an hollister interval, still distinguishable as separating for oakley sunglasses the avoidance replica watches of comment. Gilbert ralph lauren uk Long, rising directly after his associate, had iphone 6 cases already insanity workout walked mont blanc away, but this associate, lingering wedding dresses where longchamp outlet she stood and swarovski crystal meeting me hollister with it, availed herself of the occasion to swarovski show that she wished to nike air max speak to me. Such was the juicy couture outlet idea juicy couture outlet she threw out on my forthwith going to michael kors her. “For north face outlet a nike blazer few minutes — presently.”She hesitated long enough montre pas cher for me to judge supra shoes her as a trifle surprised at ferragamo shoes my being so ready — as if pandora jewelry indeed she had ray ban sunglasses rather hoped karen millen I wouldn’t michael kors outlet be; nike roshe run which would have michael kors outlet been nike air max an easy pretext to hollister her true religion outlet to gain babyliss time. jordan shoes In fact, with a mulberry face not quite like the brave michael kors outlet face she had at each step hitherto shown me, yet unlike in a fashion vans pas cher I should certainly not ralph lauren have been able thomas sabo to define on the spot; with polo ralph lauren outlet an expression, in short, that pandora charms struck me as oakley sunglasses taking refuge in gucci outlet a general reminder that not my coach outlet convenience, but her nike free run uk own, was in question, she replied: “Oh, no north face outlet — but before it’s longchamp too late. A few minutes hence. Where shall you be?” she north face asked with a burberry outlet online shade, as I imagined, of polo ralph lauren outlet awkwardness. She had burberry looked about as for symptoms of acceptance of the evening’s end on nike trainers the part toms shoes of the ladies, chi flat iron but replica watches we nfl jerseys could both see our hostess otherwise ray ban uk occupied. kate spade handbags “We don’t go up quite yet. In soccer jerseys the morning,” she oakley sunglasses added as with an afterthought, “I suppose you coach factory outlet leave early.”She looked nike air max at me nike air max straighter now. “I haven’t louboutin thought either.” Then she hollister was silent, neither turning away nor coming polo lacoste pas cher to the point, prada handbags as it seemed to lancel me she might sac guess have done, of christian louboutin outlet telling me what she had in her head. I hollister,abercrombie,hollister sito ufficiale,abercrombie italia,abercrombie and fitch,abercrombie outlet even chanel handbags fancied that her vanessa bruno momentary silence, combined vans shoes with the valentino shoes way she faced me — as michael kors outlet if that might speak bottega veneta for her — was sac longchamp meant for timberland boots an assurance true religion jeans that, whatever train she should take in the morning, michael kors she would arrange that it nike free shouldn’t be, converse,scarpe converse,converse italia,converse sito ufficiale,converse all star as it had been the day before, the same as gucci,borse gucci,gucci sito ufficiale,gucci outlet mine. I really true religion jeans caught in her attitude louboutin a world michael kors of new balance pas cher invidious air force reference to the jimmy choo shoes little journey birkin bag we had already made together. She true religion jeans had sympathies, she had proprieties that imposed themselves, vans,vans scarpe,vans italia and lululemon I ghd was air jordan pas cher not to tiffany and co think that any little journey was to be thought of again in those conditions. It came over me mcm handbags that this might michael kors have giuseppe zanotti been quite a matter discussed by her, asics running shoes discussed and settled, with her ray ban pas cher interlocutor on the sofa. It came over timberland me that if, before our ray ban sunglasses break-up for ralph lauren,polo ralph lauren,ralph lauren outlet,ralph lauren italia,ralph lauren sito ufficiale the night, I herve leger should happen also to have a minute’s talk oakley,occhiali oakley,oakley italia with that interlocutor, converse pas cher I would equally get from it the celine handbags sense of an intention unfavourable to our departing in the p90x workout same lululemon group. beats by dre And I wondered coach outlet if this, in kate spade outlet that case, mac cosmetics wouldn’t air max,nike air max affect me as marking sac longchamp a air max change back to Long’s old manner — a forfeiture of the hollister pas cher conditions, whatever view might be taken of nike huarache,nike huaraches,nike air huarache them, that had made him, ray ban,rayban,occhiali ray ban at Paddington, suddenly soccer shoes show himself as oakley pas cher so possible and so pleasant. If he “changed back,” wouldn’t Grace michael kors outlet Brissenden change by instyler the same law? And if Grace Brissenden did, nike free wouldn’t her husband? Wouldn’t the miracle take tn pas cher the form of the rejuvenation of that husband? Would it, still by the same hermes token, take the form of her becoming very wedding dresses old, becoming reebok shoes if not abercrombie and fitch as old air max as her husband, at least as old, as one might louboutin shoes say, as links of london herself? Would it louboutin outlet take the form of her becoming dreadfully plain — plain with the plainness marc jacobs of mere stout maturity and longchamp outlet artificial preservation? And if it took this form pandora charms for the nike roshe others, abercrombie and fitch which tiffany and co jewelry would it take for May Server? north face Would hogan she, tory burch outlet at nike outlet a bound coach purses as marked as theirs, recover her presence of mind nike roshe and her lost equipment?
