Letters to the Editor

What’s Wrong in Paradise?

I am a Canadian, a marine biologist and former professor at Acadia University, Nova Scotia. I have been coming to the Abaco’s since 1967, built my dream home on Man O War in 2007, and now I spend the winter here. Since 1967 I have been walking the shores and diving on the reefs around MOW and Elbow Cay. I used to bring my students annually so they could experience tropical marine biology and we could study the ecosystem. Things have changed over the years but nothing like they have since 2010.

A billion in VAT collected ( $1,000,000,000 ) , $250,000,000 in annual interest payments, with deficits and national debt increasing. We are in trouble. No one party is totally responsible for getting us here. We cannot continue on like this!

No Life for a Dog

I must take issue with certain residents of Marsh Harbour who leave their dogs chained up, seemingly indefinitely, outside. Dogs were not made to live their whole life with a choker around their neck and tied to a post in the hot sun, unable to seek shelter or even move freely. It is unsightly, unsettles tourists and locals alike, and most importantly, inhumane.

Set an Example and End Dirty Politics

Earlier this month the Prime Minister opened up and expressed his hurt and pain caused by the nasty, vile song that was written about him and his family. I join with him and all right thinking Bahamians in condemning the song and gutter politics.

Questions About Web Shops

Dear Editor, The government has released regulations (see Nassau Guardian 17th and 19th August) concerning web shops and I wish to share with you a few of them, along with some information I have researched in Abaco: 1. Distance between web shops from church, schools and residences to be within …

Lack of Amenities Frustrating

Dear Editor, Back in June 2015 I lent my house in Treasure Cay to friend, while he was there the phone and internet were NOT working (he was told it was a problem in the area). The following December I went to Treasure, the same thing so at the time …

Gambling and Social Fiber

Dear Editor, To those who know me, or read me, know I am strongly opposed to web shops (gambling), not so much from a Christian point of view as from social perspective. And so I was not surprised to read the story on Page 5 of The Tribune on Thursday, …
