  1. Sad news..Ok police force are going to have traffic PATROL at nights now?
    The country needs it. You don’t work in a bank 8 – 5. You have traffic cops during the day in st John’s issuing parking and seat belt tickets. Then the streets are left unchecked. Nights don’t need any checks especially on the high ways? See were and when most of our major accidents happen.

  2. With whom does the Prime Minister’s Scholarship Committee discuss priority areas for study?

    Soon there’ll be no Antiguan lab technicians nor X-ray technicians at Mount St John’s.
    What about agricultural technicians and agronomists, public health technicians, industrial engineers and technicians, specialties in the medical field?

    • OK I’m convince that some real stupid people comment on this site
      What does the PM Scholarship have to do with the lost of a life in a traffic collision.
      I swaer some people don’t know “Time & Place”
