The Alliance For Change (AFC) said it is deeply concerned with the recent developments at City Hall that led Town Clerk Royston King to send a lawyer’s letter to Councillor Sherod Duncan demanding an apology.On March 21, 2018, King through his Attorney Maxwell Edwards accused Duncan of publishing malicious articles in the Guyana Chronicle in relation to the No-Confidence Motion that was brought against him.Town Clerk Royston King“The offending published statements and comments constitute a most callous and disparaging libel of my client done with malice and with the predominant intent to injure my client in his employment… I am further instructed to demand as I hereby do a full, frank and contrite letter of apology you shall cause to be published in the Guyana Chronicle,” the letter stated.“I warn you that failure or omission to comply with these demands will be considered by my client as aggravating and these demands are made with prejudice to my client’s rights to take legal proceedings against you for damages for libel,” the letter concluded.However, the AFC said King needs a better understanding of his role, functions and the reporting structure at City Hall.“He is a servant of the people of Georgetown and the Mayor and City Council, not, as the evidence of his actions and conduct suggest, the other way round,” the party said in a statement.The party added that the demand is “vulgar” and it will strongly resist it.Additionally, they noted that it has been detected that the citizenry no longer has confidence King is capable or willing to execute his functions as Town Clerk.Mayor Patricia Chase Green disallowed the motion of no confidence after King brought legal advice to the Council, claiming that he cannot be disciplined by the M&CC.

Check out these 7 tips and tricks for making the ultimate geocaching experience:1. Think everyday, household items. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to make an innovative geocache. Simple latches (like child locks!) and magnets can go a long way towards building a cool container.A geocache by Herr Potter that uses child proof drawer latches.2. Make sure the location matches the container. A tupperware container is awesome if it brings you to an inspiring location; it’s less awesome if it brings you to a parking lot. You can make up for a less exciting location by using a container that requires some brain power to open or is itself a work of art.3. Don’t forget the geocache page! A person’s geocaching experience begins the moment they open a geocache’s page. Tell a fun, fictional story or use the geocache page to teach a history or science lesson. Make sure the necessary information, including coordinates, is accurate.4. Geocaching needs a planet. So let’s take care of the earth! Read these 6 tips for hiding an environmentally friendly cache.5. Ask for permission. While it may not be as exciting as making an innovative container or discovering the perfect location, asking permission before placing a geocache is essential to creating a quality geocaching experience. You wouldn’t want geocachers to have a negative run-in with a property owner who isn’t aware of your geocache!6. Think longevity. Geocaches can live for a very long time, but this requires some tender, loving care.

Now that you have learned how to get your kids outside with geocaching, make sure the caches you find are fun for them. Putting in time to plan your outing is a worthwhile investment in future family outings. Here are five tips on how you can select the best caches to make your kids’ caching trip a success!Choose easy geocachesUnless your child is a monkey (in that case go for a T5) or the next Einstein (only D5 caches may suffice), go for geocaches with a low difficulty and terrain rating. You want them to be able to find and grab the cache themselves. That unique feeling of discovery will keep your little explorers coming back for more.Bigger often is betterFor kids, one of the biggest motivators is the possibility of finding real geocaching treasure (SWAG): a bouncy ball? A small plastic animal? A shiny sticker? Yes, yes, and yes. The bigger the cache the more likely you’ll find toys and trinkets for your little geocachers to enjoy. So go for at least medium or large caches. And of course – don’t forget to raid your kids’ overflowing toy chest before heading out to ensure you bring something of equal or higher value to trade.Make sure it’s thereNothing will make geocaching seem less fun than an endless and ultimately fruitless search. There isn’t a guarantee the cache will be at the hiding location, but you can make sure it likely is. Check the latest activity on the caches you’re venturing out to find. If the cache hasn’t been found for a good while or there are a few recent DNF logs (Did not find), take that one off your List.Search by your favorite kids charactersIf you are a Premium member, make use of the web search keyword filter. Enter the name of your childrens’ favorite TV show or story book character, and see if there are any themed caches around. Fun fact: there are currently over a hundred Mickey Mouse themed geocaches to find worldwide.Create a Pocket query with kid-friendly attributesAnother option for Premium members is to create a Pocket query and select the attribute called Recommended for kids. Depending how old your progeny are the attribute Stroller accessible can come in handy. A third attribute to look for is Night cache. If nothing else works, pushing out bedtime for an exciting night caching adventure might be just the thing to get your offspring leaving the house.Did you find caches your kids especially loved?
