many insurance companies want our money.

Topa Tosses Barkers

The assault of the barkers on main street may come to an end now that

American to Stop some Service

Uh Oh, this isn’t good news. There was a story in the St. Croix Avis
that American Airline is planning to discontinue flying from San Juan to
St. Croix in April of 1998. Senator Carol Burke is on this and has
written to American to open them to reconsidering the decision. She
points out that with the emancipation coming up St. Croix will be
national news and lots of people will be coming for that event.
In other news, Burke has placed an item on the next Senate agenda to
open the Randall “Doc” James race track on a daily basis, and to require
a promoter to offer 16 races per year and simulcast para-mutual racing
from all over America. This is about new tax revenues.
