A Carnival free-for-all?*


TRYING to reach the National Carnival Commission (NCC) by phone, in this, its peak season of operations, is a huge impossibility. You dial the number, 622-1556, you get a voice-recorded welcome. If you know your party’s extension, she tells you, press star and then the number. But if you don’t, press 1 for HR; 2 for Facilities Rentals; 3 for IT, 4 for Purchasing, 5 for Accounts or 6 for regional. Or, press zero for the operator.
