    From the Editor’s Desk: The Ministry of (Not) Works

    I hope the Ministry of Works is as good at preventing construction in the Pigeon Pea as they are at preventing construction at the new terminal.

    I should start by giving a big shout-out to Creter’s Bulldogs for bringing back the hardware. For the first time ever an Abaco softball team has beaten the heavy hitters out of Nassau and Freeport for the trophy. An incredible performance, to be sure.

    Can you believe the holidays are right around the corner? Likely by the time this paper gets to you we’ll be done with Halloween and those who celebrate Thanksgiving (or those of us who just look for another excuse to get together and eat a lot of food) will be gearing up for turkey.

    Where did the $1.3 million go for the original road contract? When the original plan was trotted out and put on display for us it was sand and seal and patching throughout Central Abaco. Not what was promised us during that very heated election, but if done properly could have been acceptable.

Mr. Davis, aside from being our country’s Deputy Prime Minister, also holds the title of Minister of Works. Right now, to my ears and yours, that translates to “Roads.”

    Dear reader, it has been one year since I took the helm of our paper. The Abaconian has, remarkably, remained intact. Despite a few hiccups I feel like things have gone well.

    From the Editor’s Desk: By Sea and by Air: Part II

    We didn’t really get a lot of cold weather this winter, did we? Well, not particularly my thing (I wouldn’t have minded a couple weeks of double layers) it is exactly what our friends from the north come here for. Then again, I guess it’s not too terrible to walk around in shorts and sandals on Christmas Day.
