Stolen Goods!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Some lo­cals sug­gested that the fol­low­ing story would catch your at­ten­tion, so I am turn­ing to you. I ar­rived in St. Lu­cia from eastern Europe for a pho­tog­ra­phy/videog­ra­phy trip on the 26th of April and af­ter just 10 min­utes into my hol­i­day some­thing ter­ri­ble hap­pened. All of our lug­gage was stolen. Four bags/cases in to­tal. What was in the lug­gage? Well, I do pho­tog­ra­phy and videog­ra­phy so my plan was to come and record the beau­ti­ful is­land, na­ture, ac­tiv­i­ties and ev­ery­thing. The cases in­cluded more than 8,000 USD worth of gear: Aerial drone DJI phan­tom 3 pro with ac­ces­sories, 13’ Mac­book Pro, var­i­ous cam­era lenses (Sony, Canon), flash units (Nis­san, Canon) SD cards, ex­ter­nal hard drives, glide­cam video sta­bi­lizer, doc­u­ments, credit cards, plus lots of other ac­ces­sories (bat­ter­ies, charg­ers, fil­ters, etc). It was stolen right be­tween the He­wanorra air­port and the Vieux Fort po­lice dpt reef area from the back of our car. They broke the lock of the pas­sen­ger seat and pulled the stuff out of there. The po­lice have been in­formed and the sit­u­a­tion recorded. Maybe that kind of info will make it harder for them to sell the stuff or use it. I am pretty ac­tive on so­cial me­dia and was con­tacted by a few lo­cal pho­tog­ra­phers and/or tourism pro­mot­ers for sup­port through in­sta­gram, for which I am thank­ful. I thank you for your at­ten­tion. (e.lil­var­nagl@hot­

Pri­vate sec­tor calls for Dia­logue on high Un­em­ploy­ment Rate Only now when the horses have al­ready bolted out of the sta­ble? Too late. You guys failed to tell this gov­ern­ment in the most force­able way that VAT and the ex­ten­sive bor­row­ing by gov­ern­ment has killed small busi­nesses and has not fos­tered any growth in the lo­cal econ­omy.

St Lu­cia’s CIB re­buffs crit­i­cisms about CIP pro­gramme This pro­gramme will con­tinue to re­ceive crit­i­cism while a gov­ern­ment bereft of ideas of how to grow the econ­omy will con­tinue to de­fend it.

Will PM dis­mount IMPACS tiger be­fore Polling Day? As far as I am con­cerned he has al­ready qui­etly dis­mounted and is leav­ing oth­ers to take the fall. The thing is the pub­lic and the me­dia are too blind to see that this em­peror re­ally has no clothes on and is se­cur­ing his pri­vates with a bro­ken crown. Talk about a man who would be king!
