    Barbados Today. Was that the same Hayley Matthews that represented the WI women? In the picture you used to draw attention to the article, You cut out half of the lady’s face to draw attention to her size. That’s disgusting You seem to do this in most all your photos. Get a new photographer. Your reporters also needs lots of training.
