  1. A smoke alarm is relatively economical. Home owners should be advised by their Constituency Representative to purchase one; it saves Souls.

  2. It is most painful to think, that before teaching proper English, they want to introduce Kreyole or Patois as an additional language in Schools in St. Lucia. The sad part about it is, most need remedial English Language for a start.
    In this world, it is most beneficial to be fluent in three languages; English, French & Spanish. They should be taught to express themselves verbally and to write properly, so to be competent in this World. Patois will not do it for you. Trust in the Almighty for success.

  3. @James and @SMH … this whole story is “wonky”! Bad grammar, bad syntax … bad everything! it was quite painful to read.

  4. What kind of reporting is this? The fire was contained or should it say confined. This is such poor choice of words come on guys step up

      • They are not the bright, what else do you expect? They just don’t understand what they Read.. full in the blanks..
