Looking for Sam Green or Carl Clark

Dear Barbados Free Press readers,

Please help me locate Sam Green and Carl Clark. My USA Company, Opelika Manufacturing, had a garment factory near the airport in the late 70’s. Sam Green was our plant manager and Carl Clark was our lawyer. I loved my visits to Barbados and would like to make contact with these two fine men! I want to plan a vacation in Barbados and would like to see them again.

Thanks for your time and help in this matter.
