New Bridge Needed At "Breakwater"

The bridge at "Breakwater" leading to
the Little Bay Hotel is in a deplorable
condition, and has been so for the'past'
months In August 1963, we were inform-
ed by the Authorities that a new bridge
would soon be built-to replace the old
one This news was published and every-
one was glad that something would be done
about this hazardous condition.
But alas, four months have past and
nothing has been done about this bridge.
And it is now in a worst condition than
it has ever been.
We realize tL-at the Authorities may be
busy with other things But, is it not
true that much is being done to encour-
age tourism? And is it not also true
that this.bridge leads to the largest
tourist hotel on the island?
Considering the above facts, it is our
opinion that it is of the utmost im-
portance that a new bridge be built at
"Breakwater" ie are therefore appealing
to the Authorities to have a new bridge
built at "Breakwiter" as soon as possi-
ble.

STOP IT NOW1
In an Editorial 'of Saturday October 5,
1963, entitled: "FISH SHOULD BE SO)D IN
TEE FISH M.laE" we called the atti-
tion of the Authorities to the bad hait
adopted by the fishererm, of selling eir
fish anO gromdatO % ar

made to have this undesirable practice
discontinued Three months have past
and our fishernin are still selling fish
on the ground at the "head" of the "Fish
Alley".
As pointed out in the abovementioned
editorial, it is not only un-sanitary to
have fish lying on the ground But, in
the immediate vicinity where our fisher-
uen have chosen to sell their fish on the
ground are located:
(a) Pan American World Airways Office.

During the past year the Island ( Dutch part) has seen much improvement: (a) Work on the new terminal building at the Juliana Airport fas started and should be completed in the next mouth or so. (b) Dial telephones have been installed in Philipsburgi (c) Work on the deep-watex* pier at Point Blanche lias progressed well and this important project should be completed sometime in March 1964. (d) Every district of the island has been supplied vrith electricity. (e) A Commercial Bank (the second on the island) and other business firms have been established* The nbove.ientioned are but a few of the many general improvements For the individual, however, it has been a different stroy. For some it has been a good year; during which many of their dreams have been realized and for others it has been a bad year, during which they have encountered set-backs, disappointments and hardships. But; for all; those who had a good year as'well as those who had a bad one; 1963 is now history, and what has been written on its pages cannot be changed Let us therefore look ahead, with renewed Strength, with firm laith in God and with full Confidence in ourselves Let us make the resolution NOW to do our part, however small that part may be, to make St. Maarten and the world a better place to live in. The Windward Islands' Opinion once again wishes all a Happy and Properous New Year Thanks you for the support given in 1963 And solicit your continued support and cooperation during 1964. New Bridge Needed At "Breakwater 1 The bridge at "Breakwater" leading to the Little Bay Ilotel is in a deplorable condition, and has been so for the past months In August 1963, we were informed by the Authorities that a new bridge would, soon be built to replace the old one This news was published and everyone was glad that something would be done about this hazardous condition, But aies, four months have past and nothing has been done about this bridge. And it is now in a worst condition than it lias ever been. We realize t.at the Authorities may be busy with other things But, is it not true that much is being done to encourage tourism? And is it not also true that this-bridge leads to the largest tourist hotel on the island? Considering the above facts, it is our opinion that it is of the utmost importance that a new bridge be built at "Breakwater" We are therefore appealing to the Authorities to have a new bridge built at "Breakwater" as soon as possible. STOP IT NOWi .' v." In an Editorial of Saturday October 5, 1963, entitled: FISH SHOULD BS SOLD IN TEC FISH H/J3IET we called the attention of the Authorities to the bad habit adopted by the fishermen, of selling their fish on the ground at the "head" of "A?0TK SSTEEG" better known as the "Fish Alley". We wer then given the assurance by the Authorities that efforts would be
