    This article was from 8 months ago and nothing has been done. However, I do think they need to get rid of it or at least most of it. They should create a museum because there is a lot of Aruban history there and/or keep a small amount, fix it up and create a tourist attraction-tours with the history.

    For what it's worth, nothing has changed regarding the refinery. Only gotten worse.
    I've seen a very dear friend on the island lose his income and security because of this situation.
    The worst thing was, he and his fellow employees were left hanging until the last minute.
    A really unfortunate and sad state of affairs.

    Not concerned about the date(I saw Rona's post), just the fact that nothing has changed in 10 months.
