A tribute to Michael Anthony's best kept secret
Not much is known of Michael Anthony's outstanding work covering the early history of electricity in TT and the impact of the sector on the country's overall growth and development.

Citizens interested in tracing the origins of the socio-economic, industrial, commercial and cultural development of TT will give credit to recently deceased unflinching patriot who, in the book entitled "Electricity in Trinidad and Tobago (1895-2006)," gave a vivid account of the early period between 1895 to 1945, the stage prior to the establishment of the TT Electricity Commission in 1946.

Songwriter remembers 'the remarkable life and legacy' of Denyse Plummer
Mark Loquan, award-winning music composer, songwriter, filmmaker and president of The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago (NGC), worked with Denyse on seven songs, two of which made it to the Panorama finals - "Identity" (2003) and "Frenzy" (2005).

From toilet paper to flowers at her feet
Denyse never shied away from talking about the skeletons in her closet. In fact, in that 2019 interview, she urged anyone curious about her life story to get a copy of her 2015 autobiography The Crossover, saying everything from her relationship with her parents to the day she lost her virginity is documented within its pages.

Tributes continue to pour in for 'Darling Denyse'
—Patsy Calliste, wife of the late icon Leroy Calliste: "Denyse Plummer was a person unchanged offstage and onstage. She was the same person. When she came offstage, we would talk. She was fond of Black Stalin. She loved his songs. She was very fond of him and my family. We grew close to the calypso. My favourite song was 'Nah Leaving'. The year when she was painted with toilet paper, she swore she would finish singing. After all was said and done, and when we were leaving the park, he walked over and spoke to her. He told her you can't leave now. And she went on to sing 'Nah Leavin'. My girlfriend Joanie was the leader of the toilet paper (brigade) and she would be having fun with them. That day when she got the 'crowning in Skinner Park', she was not there. She left for the early part of the show. The next day the headlines said 'Joanie and her posse pelted Denyse Plummer'.
