Letter: Opposition MP correct about something

EDITOR, The Tribune.

AN OPPOSITION MP took umbrage at a recent letter of mine that suggested he might be misdirected.

He is correct though that one of the main aims of my life is selling cars.

Another equally important goal is to help keep MP's focused on correcting public policy that might be hurting the same people he claims to want to help.

In other words, it is my desire to help prevent unbridled government destroying the fragile economy that's left.

As explained in my previous letter, if City Markets should fail, it would no doubt be a tragedy for their 700 associates, their families and many businesses.

If the country should fail as a result of over reaching MP's ...

Beach clean up project organisers in cash plea

By AVA TURNQUEST

Tribune Staff Reporter

aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

WITH their main financier closed for business, organisers of a beach clean up project on Harbour Island are appealing for cash help.

Volunteers bemoan insufficient support from businesses despite the large percentage of tourism dollars the small island generates.

The Beach Clean Up project was founded in 1992 after Hurricane Andrew by residents Sharon King and Humphrey Percentie Jr, owner of the Vic-Hum Club. Participants walk and clean the entire beach daily.

The project receives $500 each month from local government.

Mr Percentie Jr said: "Many businesses, real estate companies, have never given the beach clea ...

We are responsible for crime problem

Dear Editor,

Much of our crime, including murder, is done by repeat offenders, quite a number of who are out on bail. Incidents of crime and murder would be fewer, and the rate of crime would be lower had we addressed earlier how to deal with this class of criminals.
Several years ago, the Privy Council in London made a judgement on how long someone can be held on remand before being allowed bail. After that, the clock started ticking on a potential surge in crime from known criminals who were now going to be free to walk the streets and commit new crimes.
There are things the FNM government could have done better on the crime­front. But for the PLP to continually and conveniently lay ...

Progressive Liberal Party Statement On Straw Vendors in New York

Nassau, Bahamas - The Deputy Prime Minister Brent Symonette's remarks about the
arrest of the vendors in New York is unhelpful. A Minister of Foreign
Affairs cannot come off as politically impotent in their situation. When
its citizens are in trouble, they expect that the government will come
to their assistance. Thankfully, the technocrats in Foreign Affairs know
what their job is: to intervene to ensure that there is due process,
that they are being properly treated and have the benefit of all the
rights to which they are entitled. Now is not the time to lecture people
about what they ought to be doing but rather to seek to help in a bad
situation.

From what is in the public domain, firstly it is being
said that the Americans conducted a surveillance operation in the
Bahamas which led to the arrest of the individuals...
