The BIG news from the Republic of Panama (in the deep south), is about what will happen on June 26. That is when the Panama Canal will open the new wider shipping lanes, and bigger locks. This will allow the majority of the ships that were heretofore too large to take advantage of the famous path between the seas. The dedication of the “new” canal is bound to be a world class event, and I plan to be there to report back to you on this piece of history. There will be film at 11, so return to be part of history in the making.
That’s the view from my chair,
