  1. KEVIN CHANCE, what a shock, you and your articles will be serious loss to Vincentians, but I am sure people like VINCYPOWA and GONSALVES will hold a champagne party to celebrate.

    GOD bless and good wishes to you, and thank you very very much.

  4. Kenton, I would like to personally thank you for your service to the Diaspora and Vincentians at home. You will be sorely missed. I wish you success in your future endeavours and God’s blessings. I sincerely hope that circumstances would allow for a speedy return.

    I beg to differ with Peter. No one should celebrate the departure of I-Witness News, irrespective of his/her political views, and I dont think anyone will, because it’s always good to know what the other side is thinking.

  6. PETER, the least that you could have done is get Kenton’s name right.

    Who is Kevin Chance…is he a RELATIVE of Kenton Chance??

  7. The loss of such an effective forum is unfortunate.

  8. So is there a way to save this forum? Can this process be handled by someone else if Kenton is moving on? Can he propose some solution to this issue? We will all miss his reporting and the issues he brings forward to SVG nationals all over the globe.
    Let’s save I- Witness.

    • Vere,

      Thank you for your concern. However, there is nothing from which to save I-Witness News. Having the forum operated by someone else is not an option. I spend the last three years investing in this and will not turn it over to others.

      • Kenton, You answered one part of VERE’s concern. If I may interject here, it seems that he wanted to know if there was anything that we the users could do to keep this service uninterupted. Thanks again.

      • Eric,

        Thank you for your concern. However, at this time there is nothing that readers can do.

  9. Mr Chance, did Ralph Gonsalves send Jason to have a “chat” with you?

    This is just unacceptable, you need to give your readership a better explanation than just saying you going on a hiatus. Why are you going on a hiatus? Are you sick? Have you gotten a new job? Are you facing financial constraints in maintaining this blog? Are you being pressured by outside forces to take down this blog? Are you being sued? Are you in the process of getting a new site? Are you running for political office? Are you getting married/divorced? You have once indicated that you may have been blacklisted by the Gonsalves Administration, does this hiatus has anything to do with such assertion? Have you run foul of the law and being incarcerated? Is some one in your family gravely ill? Are you simply tired of reading the nonsense of Vincypowa? Are you simply tired and need a break to recharge your batteries?

    Mr Chance, hopefully, you return soon.

  10. aaoouuucchh…. this one is really hard, i’ll surely feel empty without this.

  11. Kenton, I hope your REPORTING in the MAINSTREAM MEDIA is a BIT more BALANCE. Moreover, do not allow your political affiliation lead you to COMPROMISE your JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY.

    I I will leave you with this.

    “…Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.”

    All the BEST, Kenton..

    • POWA pelt yo tail and leave the man alone. Good job Kenton. Do what you got to do.

  13. Kenton thanks man, Vincentians got a ‘Chance’ to voice our opinion without Nazi censorship. thanks again and hope the blog continues

  14. Master Kenton CHANCE, you have given us, the SVG online posse, our very best news and commentary blogging sight ever – – – to date. None have done better, so far. I speak as one trained on some of the best professional sites in existence.

    Kenton, you have thoroughly excelled. I -WITNESS NEWS has been an historic blogging project.

    Mr. Chance, THANK YOU for your courage, BRAVE-NESS, temerity, fairness, and, highest professional integrity.

    I was personally acqainted with Mr. Weston Lewis, veteran newspaper editor in SVG (The VINCENTIAN), having been warmly introduced to him as a very young boy. Kenton, you rate among his cohort of outstanding VINCENTIAN media persons. i wrote regularly for Nora Peacocke’s VINCENTIAN, and even sports reports mainly for H.K. Tannis’ The STAR, official organ of the SVLP. You impress me with your knowledge, skills, and versatility.

    Keep up the exceptionally high standards and journalistic excellence that you have so maturely achieved.

    ERIC asked about other options. Still keep an open mind on these. You might consider training family, colleagues, or stand-ins, at least as supplementary site administrators – – – as a means of endeavouring to continue the posting capability, with some limits and proscriptions. I bear in mind the legal, administrative, or job contraints that may still advise against such. Like Bagga intimated, a man got to do what he has to do.

    I exult in and fully appreciate your natural need to move on with your professional and career life. Whereever you may later find it possible to do both, please do so. It would be great if you could later on reinvigorate and recapture the full operations and capabilities of I – WITNESS NEWS. Back-up; back-up; back-up.

    Your stated intention to keep the site up for us, still, even though limited to viewing only and as a research resource, is to be highly commended. My online contact is tony7lough@yahoo.co.uk, beside my initial contact. I will keep hardcopies and other records of your contact info. Please announce where you eventually go to, if that is at all feasible, later on. Take care, Vincy Bro, and strive for greater heights yet.

    BAGGA, someone mentioned that you may have a Vincy blogging site, too. How about launching a rescue mission ? You exhibit the requisite technical expertise. How about it ? My only special request is that you enable Vincy Powa to access it, too, EVEN THOUGH HE SEEMS QUITE HAPPY and greatly relieved AT PRESENT.

    Kenton permitting, I would like to say an especial UNTIL NEXT TIME WE MEET, online or otherwise, to all the greatly appreciated I – WITNESS NEWS online family. Perhaps, in crucial analytical objectivity and fairness,
    I SHOULD SAY ” PETER AND THE I-WITNESS NEWS POSSE. Go SVG BRETHREN.

    Just remember that WE, the CITIZENS OF SVG, are THE ONES MANDATED TO SERVE AS TRUE GUARDIANS OF SVG POLITICAL INTEGRITY – – – to preserve and protect our SVG CONSTITUTION, our SVG PEOPLE, our FREEDOM, and our INDEPENDENCE. It is our JOB, OUR DUTY, OUR RESPONSIBILITY, AND OUR SACRED FUNCTIONS AS SVG CITIZENS.

    THE PRICE OF SVG FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE, presently within a CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHICAL Representative Democracy, IS OUR ETERNAL VIGILANCE.

    Quo Vadis, SVG ? Whither goes thou, my HAIROUNA ?

    I am NOT saying “GOODBYE” – – – at this time. BUT, instead, “UNTIL NEXT TIME , , , ,”

  15. Lol. How on earth will Peter et al get their fix now?
    I could recommend Facebook or suicide. Either way its been emotional.

    Posted by DFP | July 6, 2012, 11:26
  16. Don’t CELEBRATE TOO EARLY, DFP. I see you and VP enjoying jubilant estacy.

    Posted by STEVE_HUGGINS | July 6, 2012, 12:06
  17. All the best in your future endeavor. Your website was a daily read for me and very informative. Thanks for your hard work.

    Hopefully you have not completely abandoned the website and that you return to regularly maintaining it.

    But come what may, God Bless and Thank you.

    Posted by Devon Hackshaw | July 6, 2012, 22:09
  18. DFP – What sort of person would ‘recommend’ suicide to someone else? Even if you don’t agree with the beliefs of another, wishing them dead is disgusting. You might want to look inward before spreading hate outward.

    Posted by Just Me | July 7, 2012, 10:12
  19. You guys may contact me at e-mail: press_huggins@aol.com
    Would like to hear how you are getting on.
    Read Kenton on his website, and on the Searchlight.vc
