Can Barbados Government rename right place? Or spend correct money? Remembering: Lynette Stoute

Both the B’dos Gov’t Info. Service (BGIS) and Barbados Free Press recently took different angles on Lynette Stoute, the mother who showed how she truly loved her children – I also have a similar yet different idea and originally had it as a mere comment… Instead I have it as a full story for everyone to consider and digest…

While it is nice that Lynette Stoute was acknowledged for her Bravery in this year’s Independence Awards I still feel it is better to provide her surviving children a financial stipend to help them at school as they get older, where would the funding emerge?

Well instead of the lavish ceremony the Central Bank held in May for their 40th Anniversary or the $600,000 wasted on Alexandra’s inquiry which the Public Service Commission cannot base any recommendations off the Inquiry’s deliberation since they have to do their own search – finances instead diverted to a worthwhile effort like ensuring the surviving children have an education into University level where they do not have to think for meals or clothing is a far better boon bestowed than what I mentioned before… The Central Bank is usually a financial angel for the Barbadian Arts Community, perhaps they can look to this in the coming fiscal year?

As for Lynette herself, they are so quick to rename schools, in this case why not have a Police Station or Fire Dept branch renamed in her honour, maybe even both? No galloping ceremony, a simple affair where you invite schoolchildren as an opportunity to impart Fire Safety techniques so we can avoid such a tragedy ever again, if possible?

  1. For heaven;s sake. Please do not encourage the renaming of anything else. This is getting ridiculous.
