    Farewell Miss Edna, you showed us how a woman who is elected to the LA and also who is appointed Speaker should behave, hopefully Tara will follow your example.

      May Ms. Moyle's soul rest in peace but may Tara follow her own path and make her own foot prints! There is more I could say – which I will not do here –  but suffice to say I am confident that Tara knows precisely how to conduct herself! Those who know Tara can feel equally confident that she will make these Islands very proud, especially the district of West Bay.
