According to many sources there will be a Press Conference at the AL Governors Office today at 10:30 AM CST with Beth Twitty and Governor Bob Riley to discuss the recent events that have transpired in Aruba pertaining to the Natalee Holloway investigation. Alabama Governor Bob Riley will most likely be responding to the letter he received from the Aruban Department of Foreign Affair that Dave Holloway discussed yesterday on Scarborough Country.
Yesterday in an interview on Scarborough Country and repeated the same in a telephone conversation as well Dave Holloway stated the following when asked of an impending boycott.
Well, the people of Aruba have elected their officials and their officials have spoken. We have elected officials and we’ll let our elected officials speak.
Well, again Joe, we elect our officials and they decide what is necessary for the people. Whatever the governor decides, that’s what we’ll do.
It would appear even a man of patience has his limits when it comes to the seriousness of the investigation into his missing daughter Natalee Holloway. No one can say that Dave did not try his best and extend every opportunity. Everyone must remember this has always been about Beth Twitty’s and Dave Holloway’s missing teenager daughter, Natalee Holloway.
In a much different expression of the situation going on in Aruba and aspects of a boycott comes Joe Mammana from last nights, November 7, 2005 Rita Cosby, Live and Direct.
Rita: Joe you have been spearheading this. What is your reaction that tomorrow Beth and the governor are going to call for it?
Joe: Well Rita, I think it is long overdue. I just spoke to Beth a few minutes ago. I also spoke to councilman Jack Kelly and councilman Juan Ramos to let you know that Philadelphia will also be signing the resolution to boycott Aruba. We will have the public schools behind us. We will have the Catholic schools behind us. We are putting this together right now. It’s kinda like a dance floor; one couple wants to get out there first.
Once they get out there, everyone else will be out there. But, this is going to be devastating…this boycott.
I want to say one thing. On the island of Aruba, Michael Posner who has the excelsior casino and the Holiday Inn. Michael, you and I are cut from the same cloth. We have seen the good, bad and ugly in life. This gentleman could still step in and do something over there and put an end to this thing before it gets out of hand. But I can tell you now Rita..when we start this boycott and put it together, it is going to be def com three.
I’m not in this for the fun of it, I eat what I kill. And I’m going to find Natalee Holloway one way or another and somebody is going to be held accountable for Natalee Holloway on that island. That’s a promise.
Rather direct one would say.
One can only hope for all sides considered that a happy medium can be found in all this. The Holloway’s and Twitty’s I am sure just want a fair and competent investigation into their daughter’s disappearance. I am sure Aruba does not want a boycott. There is no reason why any of this had to get to this point. Many scratch their collective heads as to why it has.
