  1. Yes another generous contribution to the people of Antigua and Barbuda from a foreigner who has made Antigua his home. Yes many like to bash this man for being a foreigner in this land having several business ventures. I wish one day our own people who have done well and are financially well off will do similar things.

  2. DEAD DARG PICK-UP-CORN PRINGLE can foot his own university bill, but remedial courses first!!!

  3. Another great educational opportunity for 200 students over 2 years. What a wonderful and welcoming gesture by Mr Calvin Ayre.
