No matter how much love we give away there’s more than enough left.
I am offended when an agency like the Royal Bahamas Defence Force uses straight-up public relations releases to pat themselves on the back that they can defend our borders and resources, fishing sector. Reality is they can’t.
I saw in one of the dailies about two weeks ago a statement regarding Bahamians doing more to pay their bills.

It is unfortunate that the deal to sell the Lucayan hotel in Grand Bahama didn’t work out. The hotel has been closed since Hurricane Matthew late in the hurricane season of 2016.
RULES of the road for drivers of motor vehicles have to be followed to the tee unless we want headlines of more victims from accidents.
I write today in reference to recent comments from the Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources stating that they would boost wholesale exportation of the Bahamian lobster. There won’t be any marine resources left to have a ministry of if we do that!
