    Lord somebody just sent to read a comment there. I seeing my crosses wee. Whoever fatpork is. Thank you and hope you continue to do well. I am sure some of us turn will come. After all, if the committee does all of us in one year, this would be expensive and there would be no ceremony next year. We are all proud of where we have taken this beautiful community called Castle Bruce. Those who received awards deserved it, because they have contributed a lot. Please do not be upset, the best is yet to come and later will be greater. As long as Mr. Johnson Drigo is around people’s effort will not go unnoticed. He always thanks people for their work every time he sees us. He commends us outside of awards ceremony. so just remember our time will come and it’s all about Castle Bruce our beautiful village.

    Castle Bruce people are very unfair. They like strangers only for what they can get and how much they can abuse them. Most of the work on the ground is done by strangers who live in Castle Bruce. There is not a single nurse from castle bruce at the health center. They have those real castle bruce people sitting around minding people business and the real hard workers are not recognize. Take for example (Teacher Bonit) who has killed herself in Education in Castle Bruce for more than 30 years. That was the best teacher in my time. That lady knows how to make any child learn. Up to christmas eve she there in school with children. she fix the primary school and went on to fix up secondary school. Good thing that lady doesn’t do stuff for reward from man. I know she is not going to like what I am doing here. but if I was in Dominica that would not pass so. Come on man Jono you know better and you too phia, she made your daughter learn when you your yourself gave up. Be fair man
