Preventing the destruction of our country

Alred C. Frett

Government to enforce Insurance Obligations but what about the others?

For more than half a year we have argued that Government should ensure Insurance Companies meet their obligations to Clients and we are finally hearing of steps being taken in that direction… That would be good but it still leaves the Price Gouging and Unfair Practices that have been perpetrated by Landlords and Suppliers on Hurricane Victims or just about every VI Resident.

Marching for the Commonwealth or just following the blind?

Alred C. Frett

Only the Lazy & Misinformed celebrate before the Mission is accomplished:

Time is running out, we are still in the midst of Recovery Efforts and this is hardly the time to indulge in National Holidays we cannot afford and that only serve to push us backward rather than forward… Just a week ago we did HLS Holiday and we are now called on to celebrate Commonwealth Day and, while Persons appear quick to welcome these non-productive events, few know their basic origin or meaning.

A Black History Month message against using hurricanes to rob us

Alred C. Frett

It’s over 6-months since Hurricane Irma destroyed Satellite Dishes, toppled Radio Towers and severed our On-Air connections but thanks to VINO my views were kept alive via ‘Truth for the Youth’ Articles. These Hurricanes dropped us in a time zone of Natural and man-made disasters and along with the forces of evil and Impediments we encountered, I applaud your ability to survive in what is ‘our worst of times’.

Six months of crying out for help just to suffer in silence

Alred C. Frett

Life is a journey and we are travelers for better or worse:

It is almost 6 months post hurricane and a journey from East to West and North to South still shows the devastating effects of Hurricanes Irma and Maria… Vivid details are still fresh in everyone’s mind and each have stories to tell but their stories are the same as yours and mine because we were all in this together and while no one expected miracles most believe
there should be far more progress.

Using BVI-NPI to rescue us from non-functional insurers

Alred C. Frett

Crawling or Stepping into the New Year:

A brand-new year but the old wounds linger - With no New Year Fireworks in the Road Harbour, our National Hero, Noel Lloyd, lying broken and prostrate in a desolate and powerless Park and so many signs that our People still need all the help they can get, it is a glimmer of positivity to be told that some of the Easements we said would aid in the recovery of our Territory have finally been granted.

Making recovery a Christmas gift & New Year resolution

Alred C. Frett

When Fear & Frustration replace Hope & Celebration:

December… As we count down the final month of this year our tradition of welcoming Christmas with celebrations of Joy and a New Year with outpouring of Hope, have been threatened by the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria… A dose of Reality makes it difficult to forget the past, find comfort in the present and prepare for the future – Pretending otherwise simply brings more problems than solutions.

It does not have to get worse before getting better

Alred C. Frett

The past 12-months have been terrible for many of us who have lost Spouses, Homes and Livelihood but there is no turning back the hands of time… As a Writer, right or wrong, things I say, are there for all to see and I am fortunate not to have misled you even in the classic case of Trump’s mis-Election where, what you are now seeing and hearing is what I explained to you over a year ago… (You may check this).

Holiday?- Really?- When did we all go mad???

Alred C. Frett

Recovery shouldn’t be Good enough for One until it’s Good enough for All

We are still deep in the Aftermath and Dilemma of Irma and Maria and what was once easily survivable is now a challenge to Life and Limb…

Moving forward after Hurricanes Irma and Maria

Alred C. Frett

Thanks to those who have helped in this time of need and let’s not be overly critical if we receive less than we were promised – That is the game of Politics and we do not know their most recent situation – Maybe they are worse off now or maybe they are Persons whom we discriminated against in the past… What is far more important is whether we help each other and thereby help ourselves.

BV-Islanders are not refugees- simply great survivors

Alred C. Frett

We are a proud, capable and resilient People but even before we could rebound from August Monday Flood we were slammed by the record breaking winds of Hurricane Irma – Without friend or favour she separated Homes and Businesses from their Roofs, Doors and Windows, disconnected Utilities, uprooted and decapitated Plant life, destroyed our Food Supplies, turned our Harbours into boat Graveyards.
