Lucked out on this beauty at the Bahamas National Trust's, Harrold and Wilson Ponds sometime back. If you've never visited the "ponds" one of The Bahamas National Parks, I recommend a visit. Winter months are usually better, but sunrise or sunset in Summer works too. Continue reading

Mr. Editor, I had been expecting the responses to be fast and furious concerning Foreign Minister Mitchell’s expose concerning recorded mobile ‘phone usage in the Bahamas, but hardly a word from the peanut gallery. So here is my 5 cents: Firstly is Minister Mitchell wearing earmuffs and blinders, because he... Continue reading

Dear Sir, I wonder if our great and glorious (sic) leader, Mr. Perry Gladstone Christie, will now, perhaps, listen to we Bahamians when we tell him we do not want some-else’s cast off for a summer festival. Will he listen to foreigners, which the past has shown he is far... Continue reading

What's that old saying: nothing is certain but death and taxes? Thinking about the government's budget presented each June I could not remember one year in recent decades that did not include increased taxes or fees. I stand to be corrected and would like to know if there was ever... Continue reading

Photo: TheBahamasWeekly.com by Adrian Gibson From the The Tribune and the byline, Young Man's View, here… SOMETHING stinks about the government’s new deal with Renew Bahamas concerning the New Providence landfill, the secrecy surrounding their arrangement and the fact no public tender or Request for Proposal (RFP) for the landfill...

"Eloquent. Extraordinary. Timeless. Paradigm-shifting. Classic. Half a century after it first appeared, Leonard Read’s “I, Pencil” still evokes such adjectives of praise. Rightfully so, for this little essay opens eyes and minds among people of all ages. Many first-time readers never see the world quite the same again." "Ideas are... Continue reading

One of the things that has consumed me in my adult life is the role of Government, and after being involved in a conversation with an intriguing group of people last week, I remembered Robert Leferve's powerful little book, The Nature Of Man And His Government. "Robert LeFevre (1911–1986) ran... Continue reading

If you remember names like the Stray Cats, Rockpile, Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello, you might be somewhat familiar with Dave Edmunds.

Dear Editor, A couple of items for thought: 1 – Isn’t it amazing, when things are not going as hoped then deny everything, a case in point, a serious deficiency in the numbers of jobs created since May, 2012. The PLP election machine, at the time, did NOT deny a... Continue reading

As noted yesterday, I've been sorting through filing cabinets of old documents, including some Letters to the Editor. The following "letter" is from 2003. Do you think it stands the test of time? Every so often a politician offers up some food for thought regarding Bahamian culture and how it... Continue reading

This speech consists of a presentation I was asked to make at Roosie Finlayson’s Vision 2020 back in November 2002 and was amended slightly for Remarks for the Rotary Club of South East Nassau, Wednesday, July 3, 2003.

Cleaning up old files stirs so many memories. Often they're bad ones though. The following letter to the editor from 2001 suggests there is very little new under the sun as the VAT Bill has gone underground.

It's more than a bit ironic that after 41 years as a nation, so many people are discussing the same issues today that defined the country's first political party (PLP) that wrested the government from the minority in 1967, promising, according to Mr. Philip C. Galanis, "a more equitable social... Continue reading
