Why, why, why?

Why is the cable still off and when it is on why are there channels missing, you should get there channels that you paid for, if the package changed someone should let you know, channels have been taken away and added nobody let me know what was going on.

Dynamic duo of politicians

Two of the most intriguing personalities to dominate the Bahamian political landscape during the 1950s and 1960s, in my opinion, were Sir Randol F Fawkes and Sir Stafford Sands. The latter was the most polarising politician in Bahamian history. When his image was placed on the $10 banknote by the Free National Movement (FNM) administration of former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham in March 2000, it stirred up a hornets' nest.

Ignore the shot spotters

Minister of National Security is making a lot of fuss about this Shot Spotter Alert system that will be rolled out very soon.

Long range binoculars?

Haitian sloops being able to enter the Bahamas and seemingly have free will until just within eye-shot of Nassau - Why?

Entrepreneurs in first anniversary

A boutique print shop and shipping company based in Centreville is celebrating its first business anniversary this month.

Travel advisories are not flippant

Travel advisories are issued by sovereign governments to advise their citizens of danger or potential danger when visiting a particular city, area or country – they are not flippantly issued.

Let's get ready to defend drone attack

How we like to copy so has the Ministry of Transport - Police and NAD got some very strict regs to ban the flying of drones anywhere close to LPIA or any airport?

We should join the Canada club

Canada is the second wealthiest country in North America with an impressive GDP of $46,437 per capita.

Public safety is key concern

Every sovereign State has the right to issue advices to their citizens as to the safety of travel to any area in the world – it is their sovereign legal constitutional responsibility.

MPs need to disclose

CRUISE Port of Nassau - the best choice is the Cruise Lines without any doubt as already commented on - dah - who controls the itinerary’s where the ships visit, not the Cruise Line, so if they are managing Nassau Port there is an enormous financial reason to visit.

Three ships the minimum

Who would you prefer managing the Port of Nassau?

Competent would be enough


Did Minnis jinx Saxons?

The readership of this newspaper will undoubtedly recall Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis’ lighthearted comment to the media about his desire for the Shell Saxons Superstars to win the Boxing Day Junkanoo Parade. The comment came in response to a question regarding the unprecedented industrial unrest the Free National Movement (FNM) administration was facing in early December.

We need to deliver good services so tourists return

I read in the newspapers the other day that air arrivals to the country were up 16.5 percent for the year. That’s extraordinary.

Why Dr Minnis still gets my vote

I voted PLP and DNA before, but 2017 was the first time I voted FNM. I’m glad I did. The party was the best choice on May 10, 2017, and it remains the best choice today.
