  1. This is great news , I don’t think that there will be any
    Critics regarding this Equipment . However SVG has become so polarized , that I believe that there will be some criticisms
    on this Achievement .

    The Government should also be commended regarding the Medication that prevents some people with Diabetes from losing their Limbs .

    CONGRATULATIONS TO THE GOVERNMENT ; CONGRATULATIONS ALSO TO

    ALL VINCENTIANS WHO HAVE MADE THEMSELVES & ST.VINCENT & THE

    GRENADINES PROUD BY THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS IN THEIR PARTICULAR

    FIELDS .

    I ALSO WANT TO SALUTE ALL THE EMPLOYEES OF THE ARGYLE

    INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT , WHO HAVE IN MY OPINION BEEN FLAWLESS

    IN DOING THEIR RESPECTIVE JOBS. I MAY BE IN ERROR BUT I HAVE

    NOT READ THAT THE EMPLOYEES AT THE AIA HAVE BEEN COMMENDED

    FOR THEIR PERFORMANCES , ESPECIALLY WHEN THIS IS THE FIRST

    TIME WE HAVE AN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT .

  2. Whenever it involves progress or anything positive they choose to stay silent but as soon as something negative turn up,it makes headline news. It seems like a case of selective coverage Something like a dialysis center in st Vincent can prolong lives and is very newsworthy.A NEW DIALYSIS CENTER AND DIRECT FLIGHT FROM NYC TO ST VINCENT BEGINNING MARCH. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK EVERYONE!!!
