BY: Indrawattie Natrammother of five formerly of Pomeroon River, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) is seeking more markets for her casareep, which is branded under ‘Pomeroon Cassava Casreep’ bottled by Denis Campbell.Lorleen Boston and her father Denis Campbell standing in front of her stallLorleen Boston and father Denis Campbell, 54, had started the business almost a year ago selling casareep, oranges and various tree barks.Standing in the sweltering heat at the Anna Regina Market, Boston said that she would like to source more markets for her casareep. Currently business is slow due to the inability to access profitable and steady market. The mother vends daily at the Anna Regina old market. When asked what makes her casareep different from the other agro-processors, she said the ‘thickness’, ‘flavour’ and ‘spices’.“This casareep is different, the juice is boiled until it is reduced by half in volume, to the consistency of molasses; it is just as thick.”She told Guyana Times that it is her desire to see her business prosper with more markets through better packaging and her cassreep reaching more housewives. She related that when she gets busy with her children and schooling, her aunt usually assists her in boiling the casareep.She also related that when there is a high demand for casareep she employs persons from the Amerindian community of Manwarine. The vendor also disclosed she sources casareep from other persons who manufacture it.“You see many Amerindian women are mostly home, they have nothing to do but they make casareep, they don’t have the time to sell, so I also assist those women in selling their casareep,” Boston added.The mother said that she started the business so she could be more independent and provide better for her children: “I want to be self-sufficient, independent and earn my own money; and I can only do this if I start my own business.”She awakens as early as 04:00h every morning to catch an early bus to reach market on time to sell her casareep. The family is presently living at Charity Squatting area.Her father told this newspaper he assists his daughter in the labelling process. The father of six explained that the small bottle sells for $500 and the large $1500. Gallon quantities are also available based on ‘order’.

If they’re competent to fight this war, then I ought to be singing on ‘American Idol,”‘ Cheney said. The remark drew robust laughter. “I don’t know why that’s funny,” Cheney said at the event for Rep. Ric Keller, R-Fla. Democrats were quick to counterpunch. “Under this administration’s watch, Iraq has become a training ground and launching pad for international terrorism, North Korea has likely quadrupled its nuclear arsenal, bin Laden remains on the loose, terror attacks across the world are on the rise, and Katrina exposed the staggering gaps in the administration’s ability to protect America,” said Reid spokesman Jim Manley. Democratic National Committee spokesman Luis Miranda said: “Instead of offering a plan for victory in Iraq, the vice president today again resorted to attacks to try to distract from the Bush administration’s commitment to a failed strategy.” Bush and Cheney appeared to be repeating a page from the 2004 presidential campaign. During a campaign stop then in Des Moines, Iowa, Cheney said a vote for Democrat John Kerry would risk another terror attack. Making the “wrong choice” on Election Day would mean Kerry would follow a pre-Sept. 11 policy of reacting defensively, Cheney said. Some wary Republicans on the ballot in November have been trying to stay at arm’s length from the White House to avoid being tainted by Bush’s job approval ratings, in the 30s. But presidents attract crowds and supporters with deep pockets, and Bush remains the nation’s most successful fundraiser. Cheney, whose poll numbers are even lower than Bush’s, is not far behind. Both have raised tens of millions of dollars for GOP congressional and gubernatorial candidates running in this year’s midterm elections. Bush spoke at a fundraiser for Rep. Mike Sodrel, raising more than $500,000 to help the freshman Republican beat Democrat Baron Hill. The race is considered a tossup in the GOP quest to retain control of the House. He said the Republicans have an economic record to run on, and he urged Congress to make permanent various tax cuts due to expire within a few years. He tried to draw a sharp contrast between the two parties’ economic policies. “In 2001, more than 90 percent of the congressional Democrats voted against cutting income tax rates,” Bush said, referring to votes on his initial package of tax cuts. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney launched a one-two political punch against Democrats on Friday, saying they are ill-equipped to handle the economic recovery or the War on Terror. Shouldering dismal poll ratings, Bush worked to frame the debate ahead of this year’s congressional elections by telling supporters that “the difference is clear” between the two parties on how to sustain the recovery. “If you want the government in your pocket, vote Democrat,” Bush said. “If you want to keep more of your hard-earned money, vote Republican.” Cheney, speaking at a GOP fundraiser in Orlando, Fla., took on Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and party chairman Howard Dean by name. He said leading Democrats have demanded a “sudden withdrawal from the battle against terrorists in Iraq – the very kind of retreat that Osama bin Laden has been predicting.”

Chela, Mike and Ortiz’s mother, Rosa, toured the boat and paused to take pictures.The boat is a powerful, high-tech crime-fighting and rescue tool, said sheriff’s Lt.
