This time it’s me, standing in the need of prayers

There’s an old so-called negro hymn which goes: “ It’s me, it’s me. it’s me oh Lord, standing in the name of prayer.....not my mother, not my father, but it’s me oh Lord....” The words of that hymn could well apply to individuals and the very nation itself.

Sorry for horses

As a Canadian who has visited Nassau multiple times, I feel I must comment on the working conditions of the horses travelling Bay Street each day.

Food for thought

Kindly afford me space in your respected columns to comment on what seems a preferred, politically perverse and pervasive public lie relative to our inability to achieve some semblance of self-sufficiency in national food production.

Politicians should stick to cutting ribbons . . . and employ experts

For the past several years we have been bombarded in the press, on the radio and on television, about the atrocious state of the General Post Office on East Hill Street.

Wrong place for bank

So the most prime site in downtown Nassau has been transferred for the new Central Bank Building?

Nassau comes first

We have to thank Carnival for their staying power, in their new cruise Port proposal for Grand Bahama, as many investors would not have waited two plus years from signing an MOU early in 2017, with a Government to finalise and obtain approvals. Why?

And pigs might fly . . .

The new tourism promotion advertisement and Lenny Kravitz … Madam DG be careful when stating statistics, as to the good gentleman’s following … accuracy shows professionalism.

Hard to contain waste

The City dump - or as we politely call it now - the Environment Disposal Site. The hype from the final signing months, seemingly of negotiation had to be negotiating down from the original $140 million to $45 million over 15 years one asks, begs accuracy. When was there a National emergency declared at the dump - ever Mr Minister?

Our shared concerns

I watch the BBC, and Al Jazeera networks daily, to get a good understanding of global events, and trends.

Some people are just too gullible

The gullibility of some people in positions of influence can be nauseating at times.

Stench of corruption too strong

The PLP has been in panic mode ever since the beginning of investigations into alleged corrupt practices on their watch.

Ashamed to call myself a Bahamian

The absolute horror reported on the above date of Mr Douglas Ngumi's unlawful incarceration at the Carmichael Road Detention Centre sent shockwaves through me.

Cronyism is still thriving

We have had no garbage collection in our neighbourhood for more than two weeks now, forcing me to transport stinking maggot encrusted bags of refuse to a public dumpster in my own vehicle.

Reusable fuels is the way to go

OBAN - very disturbing comments from Senator Foulkes.

It's just rubbish

What on earth is going on with garbage collection on Breezy Hill off Village Road?
