The excellent letter by Michael Creque imploring us to “clean up the streets, enforce our laws and plant flowers to make St. Thomas shine again” (The Daily News, Aug. 5, 2019) deserves the commendation of all who call these islands home.

Significantly, those of us who have followed Creque’s efforts over the years know that his words are not idle talk but are strong reminders of his personal efforts to assist in the cleanup and beautification of our islands.
