Hair & Skin Health Tour Kicks off in St. Martin this Saturday:

GREAT BAY:--- "I Am Beautiful CARIBBEAN," the Natural Hair & Skin Health Workshop Tour is scheduled for Saturday, March, 28 at 7 PM, at Carl's Unique Inn in Cole Bay. Admission to the workshop is \$10, tickets are available at Van Dorp bookstore, said Rochelle Ward, tour organizer and owner of Don't Break the Comb (DBC). On Sunday, March 29, the hair and skin health tour will be hosted in Anguilla by Nails R Hair. "Participants can expect informative workshops with hair demos, giveaways and sessions on loc maintenance and skin care," said Ward. DBC is hosting the St. Martin leg of the I Am Beautiful CARIBBEAN tour. There are three guest speakers for St. Martin and Anguilla. "Guest speaker Petra Matthews of Nat'ral Xpression in St. Thomas is a hair braider and loctician extraordinaire. Speaker TaNesha Barnes is a licensed esthetician and owner of Solace Hair and Esthetics Studio in Connecticut. Her T. Barnes Beauty brand consists of spa services, retreats, workshops, her own organic skincare and mineral cosmetic line," said Ward. "The third speaker is Kim Aska. The Puerto Rico-born mother of three lives in St. Thomas. Aska blogs about her natural hair journey, which began in March 2010. She has over 2,800 subscribers on her Youtube channel, islandgurl3601," said Ward, who is a leading St. Martin blogger; published poet and high school teacher. "The guest speakers have a wealth of information to share with our friendly island and our sister island. This is exactly what health and beauty care entrepreneur Denise Benjamin hoped for when she started I Am Beautiful Caribbean in 2011. Benjamin's idea of an ongoing tour, a kind of a wellness caravan, is one that would bring beauty care awareness, support and education, and make the latest and greatest hair care brands accessible to people in the Caribbean," said Ward. "Top natural hair brands and body treatment products such as Alikay Naturals, Obia Natural Hair Care, Sweetsoulmajic, Tropic Isle, The Honey Pot and Komaza Care will be available at the weekend workshops," said the organizer. Ward is also known for DBC's highly successful hair and beauty care events at the annual St. Martin Book Fair in early June.

EXCLUSIVE: Prime Minister and Heyliger plans to sign off on FBO building permits to keep MP Matser Quiet.--- Reliable Sources.

PHILIPSBURG:--- SMN News learnt that the Leader of the United Peoples Party Theodore Heyliger has given interim Minister of VROMI Marcel Gumbs the green light to sign off on the building permits for Taliesin Construction in order for the company to finalize the Fixed Based Operations (FBO) project at the Princess Juliana International Airport (PJIAE). According to an UPP insider the party leader has decided to sign off on the pending permits because MP Matser have been behind the interim Minister of VROMI to sign off on the permits but the Minister allegedly said that the only way those permits will be signed is if MP Heyliger approves them. SMN News learnt that MP Matser have been going after his party leader and the Prime Minister he "Heyliger" appointed to sign off several building permits that they have held up because several persons on St. Maarten are without work. On Thursday the coalition partners met and it was decided that the interim Minister of VROMI should sign off on the permits if they have to keep the current government in place. While Taliesin Construction won the bid at PJIAE in which five companies participated, other construction companies have decided that they will challenge the bidding process because they said the owner of Taliesin Construction has a child with a sister of the Managing Director of PJIAE and therefore the bidding process was not free and fair but was granted to someone that has relations with the managing director of PJIAE.
