Here's a guy that can 'outscam' the whole island. He will get Puerto Rico Development Corp. to borrow the money (12% now) for the promise of a few hundred jobs. If it works out, Trump will take the profits and spend them in DR. If it doesn't he will just declare bankruptcy on yet another one of his 'projects.'

They should offer him Rosy Roads to develop. It already has an airport and docks appropriate for large yatchs. Then it MIGHT get developed within my lifetime--I'm already 59.

This is a development for the super rich. Read the full story. How long will it be before Tito Kayak and his protesters will show up to stall this project? Maybe, the prostesters in front of the Paseo de Caribe could move their garbage heap of a camp out of Paseo de Caribe out to the Trump development site. It would make bigger headlines and enforce the message to discourage investments in Puerto Rico and to set the stage for Chavez to take over and independent Puerto Rico...

Golf, and golf courses are the best way to destroy ecosystems and the environment, but lets welcome Mr. Trump. Pharmaceuticals also polluted endessly but they created jobs. Lets bring to Puero Rico anything
that destroys the environment if it creates jobs!

RF: This golf course, the 36 holer where they will stage the PGA "Puerto Rico Open" in March has already ruined the ecosystem in Rio Grande, along with all the others over there. Trupm realized that the ratio of pollution to concrete wasn't what Puerto Rico has come to expect--too much pollution, not enough concrete. The only way to balance the ratio in Puerto Rico is to add concrete.

Maybe Trump will resurrect his TV show where he FIRES everyone. Wait until he finds out that the laws in Puerto Rico don't allow anyone to be fired. The only way to let employees go in Puerto Rico is to close the plant and move it to Dominican Republic. Or have them hit by a car on Saturday night.

The brutal, illogical housing developments in the Metro Area all at once, in a desperate illusion
to make a quick buck will soon show the results.

All these new condos will need water, there will be no water. The AAA is running scared already asking the populace to save water.

Meanwhile the followers of el pendejismo paisajista ( http://endemismotrasnochado.blogspot.com/
continue planting the wrong things in the wrong places. Golf courses waste a lot of water since
the grass is cut so short to allow the titleist run smoothly toward the cup.

If they knew what they are doing they would have started planting paspalum, a grass tolerant of salty/briny water, in appropriate areas, but no, the kept as if nothing has changed. Many golf courses will have to close, because even getting the water they waste for peanuts will not help, since there will be none, soon.......

An irony of today's Puerto Rico is that we live on an overpopulated island that will suffer intermediate and severe droughts during the next decade. At the same time one of my Nationalist friends recently told me that the United States wants to steal the pure waters of Puerto Rico.

Brackish water for gardens and landscape costs a minimum of $500.00/month per residence. It is desalinated ocean water, but not potable. Some in Puerto Rico will wash down the marquesina with 1,500 gallons of water merely because the cat had a hairball.

And yet, we will 'drown' in trash before we 'thirst' from lack of water.

I lived three years in Sarasota, Florida, in a community in a beautiful Rain Forest. There were many springs of sulfur water that had the odor of rotten eggs. This sulfure water could not be used for drinking or bathing. However, it was used to water the lawns, flower gardens and trees. I never liked the sulfur odor when the sprinklers were on.

A separate city source of water was used for drinking and bathing.

Being a rain forest, there were snakes in the community including the highly dangerous coral snake. When I first moved there in December 1989, it rained one afternoon. After it stopped raining the sun came out. I looked out my kitchen window and saw three snakes sunning themselves in my driveway. I almost fainted.

I fear snakes and never saw a snake in Puerto Rico though I am told that there are snakes in the mountains. I also experienced seeing allegators in the Sarasota area.

I was at a MacDonald's north of Sarsota. I went to get into my car in the parking lot and there were three alligators between me and my car. They too were sunning themselves.

I got the manager to take care of the allegators. He told me that I don't need to worry. They are safe because they were just fed seveal MacDonald's hamburgers.

I returned to Puerto Rico in January 1993. I have not seen a snake or allegator since. Also, I no longer experience the small of sulfur water.

I know what you mean about not being able to edit the typos in the comment box on Topix. Sometimes, I write my comment first as an email message. This way I can edit and use my email spelling tool. The final copy I would then copy and paste into the comment box.

Another problem is that if I type a message into the comment box and went to search on Google, my entire comment would disappear.

Well, now.... We have Caimans. They are ILLEGAL!. They arer damaging the delicate "ecobalance" that we have in the island... Probably a couple of "idiots" brought in as a novely pet. Then when it grew. They obviously couldn't handle it. They were released in to the wild by the "irresponsible" pet owners. Instead of calling the appropiate authorities to handle it........ Now we have a couple of hundred...They are a safety hazard and danger to the public. It's only a matter of time before someone is bitten by these reptiles.

Thy just found a nest of Caiman eggs the other day....I saw this on Wapa.

Thy were brought in just like the infestation of wild monkeys we have in the Southwestern part of the island, that escaped out from the research center.

El Yunque, the first protected national park in the Americas (by King Alfonso XII of Spain).

Recently disclosed Veterans Affairs Administration and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers documents indicating that between 1956 and 1968, the U.S. Department of Defense not only sprayed dioxin-powered herbicide Agent Orange on plants at El Yunque Rainforest, but used similar chemicals in experiments involving vegetation throughout the island in the 1950s and 1960.
