Share General Secretary of the Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU), Thomas Letang (file photo)The Dominica Public Service Union (PSU) has extended Christmas greetings to all Public Servants represented it represents and to the general public.In his 2015 Christmas address, General Secretary of the Union, Thomas Letang urged Dominicans to let this Christmas, on the heels of Tropical Storm Erika, signal “the beginning of life in which we will not fail to love, forgive and share with our fellow citizens”.Here is Mr Letang’s message;“And the angel said unto them fear not for behold I bring you good tiding of great joy which shall be to all people for unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the lord and this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger. What a humble birth for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords our savior and redeemer.In celebrating the birth of Christ we must be Mindful of his many great teachings. For, example he says to us that whatever we do to the least of our brothers that we do unto him. He exports us that he who has two coats should impart to him who has none, and he who has two mittens should do likewise.To only give at Christmas when we could have reached out to the less fortunate brothers and sisters on other occasions is rather unfortunate. Did we clothe the naked when they needed us? Where the hungry fed when their tummy’s ached? Did we provide shelter to those who were exposed to the elements? Have we built a vocation of visiting the sick and bed ridden or do we always wait for this season every year to do so?Whatever form of kindness we are bestowing this season we should continue to do so beyond the Christmas celebrations. Our lord whose birth we celebrate has promised that he will be with us through good times and bad times his blessing are not for just one day even when we stray from his path he has not abandon us.On behalf of the entire Dominica Public Service Union Family I wish all Dominicans a Merry and Spiritual Christmas and health and prosperity.

He quipped: “What goes against football is to have to play in these conditions. The players were suffocated by the sun, heat and the humidity.” Herrera then decided to complain about the World Cup organisers for making the teams play in Fortaleza at 1pm, when it is extremely hot and humid. 29/06/2014 “Out of the four matches here in all of them the refereeing was disastrous,” he blasted. “Robben did three dives and he should have been cautioned. You should caution a guy who is trying to cheat, and then if Robben did it again he would be sent off. Upd. at 23:36 CEST The Dutch won 2-1 to progress to the World Cup quarter-finals at Mexico’s expense. “I want the referee committee to take a look and that the referee goes home just like us.” Herrera criticised the referee Pedro Proenca and also blasted other refs his team had previously had. “And why did FIFA choose a referee from the same confederation as Holland instead of one from South America, Asia or Africa? Mexico manager Miguel Herrera was left raging at Arjen Robben after the Dutchman won a late penalty to help Holland beat his side. “The doubtful decisions were always against us. We have to say it in capital letters, in three matches we had horrible refereeing. The man with the whistle knocked us. Rik Sharma
