With this gratitude extending to the teachers and staff of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Works, the Royal Bahamas Police Force and other agencies, the FNM said these public servants are owed a debt of gratitude by the entire country.

"The country owes a debt of gratitude to the private contractors and Bahamian workers who painted school buildings, plastered drywalls, and lent their talents to getting our children back to school on time," the party statem ...

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 ...

The Cabinet Minister and the Prince's helicopter

THE PLP never cease to amuse us.

Knowing the party's own free-ride history, we were surprised members would have the temerity to venture into the debate on whether Environment Minister Earl Deveaux should have accepted Prince Karim Aga Khan lV's helicopter to fly him to a meeting with the Bahamas National Trust at the prince's Bell Island development.

The prince's proposal to develop his private island, located within the environmentally sensitive Exuma Land and Sea Park, is now before the cabinet. In the public eye the reason for the flight made Mr Deveaux's helicopter ride precarious.

There were those who believed that Mr Deveaux's acceptance of the prince's ho ...

Progressive Liberal Party Statement on Straw Vendors

Nassau, Bahamas - Enclosed is a Press Statement by Progressive Liberal Party.

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...

Letter: Has the PLP paid its bill to ZNS yet

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I find it amusing that Dr Nottage and Obie Wilchcombe had so much to say concerning the "rightsizing" of ZNS when we all know that ZNS, like many other government entities, is grossly overstaffed. They agree with the "Rightsizing" but the timing is wrong. Well blow me down!

They know that it has to be done but just happy that they don't have to be the ones to do it. So off they go trying to score political points. Successive governments are to be blamed for the blatant abuse of ZNS. Clearly, this burden and strain on the public purse cannot and must not be allowed to continue.

As with everything, when it comes to making decisions the PLP always try t ...

MSC truck plan 'misunderstood'

By DENISE MAYCOCK

Tribune Freeport Reporter

dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - The new trucking policy implemented on Monday by Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) may have been "misunderstood" by some truckers who feared the company was attempting to impose a monopoly.

Last week, several independent truckers and members of the opposition expressed concern over a notice sent by MSC to merchants, shipping agents and brokers in Freeport. PLP MPs Fred Mitchell and Alfred Sears claimed that the notice issued by MSC sought to control the movement of containers at the port, and increase delivery charges from $120 to $295.

They believed it was an attempt by the company to monopolise ...
