Increases to the excise tax rates for cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco products will go into effect on June 1.
Remember the front page of the local publications about three months ago or so with the truck end in the air and the nose in the hole? Well, it's longer, wider, more dangerous, more polluting, and stinks worse than ever.
Here we are several months after the fact, and the pit is still wide open, blocking the entrance to a fine eating establishment, polluting the environment and water, disgusting the locals and tourists, and no one has an answer as to when it will be fixed.
Shame on public works and the government offices responsible for getting this work done. Some one is obviously not doing their job. You know they have a full time baby sitter overlooking the hole 7 days a week? How much have we spent on this babysitting effort? I think the hole could have been fixed by now with the funds wasted.
Way to go St Croix. Keep turning those tourists away. What we try and build on the one hand, incompetence tears down on the other.
