It may have become obvious to some that I don't like change. But one change on the island has really been great, especially this winter.

If the airport was still a field, there would have been very little flying in the early part of the winter when it was so warm, and now with this weird spring weather. Also emergency services would have been greatly hampered with the airport closed at the very moment when it is needed the most.

I thank all who had the forethought to make the airport what it is today.

Paved airport sounds great. Much needed. NOW we also need whatever it takes for better cell phone usage. For emergencies, etc.

Mike you are so right ...

In the old days we took what we had and that was not much, we struggled though it ...

But now today some things can be changed .. for the better

That makes another good quote by Squeaky. The key words being "if done right". Sometimes, there is conflict over what is right. In this case I think we can all agree, paving the airport was right, i.e. good.
