Sunday marked the 80th Birthday of the Communist leader Fidel Castro.

The world’s longest-serving head of government had not been seen since he underwent emergency surgery on July 31 and ceded power to his brother Raul Castro, 75, the defense chief.

The Miami newspaper El Nuevo Herald reported that Castro underwent a colostomy.With a message reading “I feel very happy“, pictures in the Juventud Rebelde newspaper showed the revolutionary icon alert and in good spirits after the operation to halt gastrointestinal bleeding.

To all of you who wished me health. I promise I will fight for it. … The country is moving forward and will continue marching forward perfectly well.

“Happy Birthday!”, “Viva Fidel!, Viva Raul!”

Recently there was an article in the Times Newspaper, where the Community of Woodford Hill in the North East end of Dominica were given approximately two months to make up their minds on whether they want a major hotel built on the coastline – which will result in closing all access to the most popular beach in the area.

The investors of the resort were prepared to build the resort under the condition that the beach in Woodford Hill will be reserved only to the guest.

According to Ivor Nassief (Minister of Tourism at the time); the high end operators are concerned about beach access, beach safety and beach control. “When visitors come and spend 5, 6, 7, 800 bucks for a room, they do expect for privacy and safety.

It’s funny that Mr. Nassief will make such a comment, were in Barbados the government put in public-access points on all beaches so that every Bajan can have access to any beach on the island

So are we ready to loose our rights to our Nature Isle to some visitors who spends 5, 6, 7, 800 bucks a night?
