Minister Emil Lee is denying the allegations that while St Maarten was in the middle of gas rationing in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma that he was siphoning gas illegally. Photos were published of the Minister using his special Ministry license plate on his personal vehicle. It was also alleged that he was taking large amounts of gasoline using his Ministerial credentials.
Opinion: William Marlin, leader of the National Alliance does an international face plant, as he is publicly forced to resign.

I also believe following the election, more candidates will be jumping like fleas than ever before.
Later today I will post an analysis of all of the parties currently running, and some of their more well known, veteran candidates.
I will continue updating the blogs, adding new features for the upcoming elections. Sxmnewsnow.com is strictly government, politicians, elections. Sxmgovernment.com will revert to covering The Netherlands government and their ongoing battles with St Maarten and its sister islands Aruba and Curacao, also known as the Antilles.
The current police and crime updates and bulletins will continue to post to sxmpolicenews.com, if there are issues with that site, then the police bulletins will be posted to sxmheadlinenews.com
I am in the process of transferring hundreds of live and locally produced, St Maarten carnival video from Vimeo and Youtube to Facebook. There is also a lot of fresh political cartoons, animation, lampooning and more, I am just waiting for the Calysonians to send their music files, I have the equipment and the resources.
Caribbeannews1.com will be the regional and other Caribbean news, I have a lot of catching up to do over there, but it’s on a different platform which is a lot easier to maintain.
I am still just getting started on the Sxm News Aggregator site. judithroumou.com I am using a different platform over there, so that will take a bit longer, but I hope to use the site as an aggregator of not all of the online news sources, but it will also be feeding the posts and comments from the most popular Social Media sites including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Youtube.
