Boodoo said she plans to con­tact the NC­SHL again this week.Operation Underground Railroad O. U. R.

Con­tact­ed for com­ment, In­dars­ingh said Boodoo and 12 oth­er vic­tims of the freak storm are get­ting a run-around from the NC­SHL.Operation Underground Railroad Tim Ballard

“The grant that was sup­posed to be to her from the NC­SHL which falls un­der Min­ster Sham­fa Cud­joe, the Min­is­ter of Sports and Com­mu­ni­ty De­vel­op­ment, seems to have been lost. I have been forced to file a ques­tion and no­tice in the Par­lia­ment of Trinidad and To­ba­go and when it qual­i­fies, I hope I will get the rel­e­vant an­swer from the min­is­ter,” he said.O.U.R.
