St Thomas plundered
THE EDITOR, Sir:
St Thomas is being raped of water and aggregate. As I travel daily, there are trucks loaded with sand and gravel being removed from the parish. Repeatedly, their heavy weight impacts negatively on our roads. Along with the sand, water is also piped from St Thomas into Kingston and its environs.
If only we could get some good roads and other benefits, as we swap our bountiful resources of sand and water that many other communities outside of St Thomas benefit from. This little parish gives much, but what do we get in return?
"Thank God for the returning residents," are the comments of persons in taxis, buses, bars, or wherever they meet up, whom we all agree utilise much of the services in the parish and so enable many others to benefit.
When will the parish of St Thomas get the attention it so desperately needs? When will we be properly represented? We need help!
