  1. I worked in St Lucia in 1969/70 and found the Island to be a great place to live. All the negative issues emulating from there now makes me wonder what happened by dragging it into the modern world, what price progress ?
    Best wishes to all my old associates and keep them safe.

  4. We need to talk to those thugs around the island who are all copy cats doing and behaving like they are the untouchables. They are all monkey see monkey do salops who dont want to work for themselves thay want name brand clothes and shoes go sell jelly coconuts by the market there is no shame in that we did it going up in St.Lucia. My mom worked with Geast babanas to provide us with the chicken backs to eat with the breadfruits and green figs bakes and cocoa tea. We didnt have to kill anyone or steal anything. The problem with St. Lucians nowadays is earthly things big mansions expensives cars clothes ect ect ect but we have lost sight of who we are as a nation. Bring back the good old days. There was lots of love and caring.oh oh St. Lucia.

  6. It look like every weekend there is shooting going on in St.Lucia. Last Sunday i listerned to the PM address to the nation i dont delive in my opion that he address the crime and murders that are happening on the island. He did not say enough about that. Its a shame through that the people of my island have become sooooo heartless in the name of material things we have lost our way. Whatever happened to respect truthfulness hard work and most importantly the fear of our God.
