Police in cars couldn't catch two dudes on a moped? Jesus help us.

This is a joke right? "New" never means "brand spanking new" in relation to Bahamasair. We shop at AirMax.

I am still stuck on "both he and Mr Heastie agreed that there was NO ONE at BPL presently skilled in electro-mechanical engineering." By damn! Not a single engineer of this type working at BPL? Not one? That is a disgrace. I am not saying the people who work at BPL aren't smart and can't be trained, but the fact that out of all those workers not one went on for further training tells you the amount of money these fellas were pulling down. No incentive to update and improve training and qualifications. And these are the same people willing to sabotage and mortgage the country's future to protect their goldmine.

Mr. Woods’ arrangement is ridiculous and sanctioned by governments- probably the PLP but one can’t be sure. Gibson is playing politics and it’s dirty and effective in this climate but it also asks for transparency in government pay. And Woods asks a question whose answer I would like to know as well. How much is Gibson making as Chairman and how much time is he putting into the job? Let all government salaries and perks be posted!

Marco left this world eight years ago. That it has taken this long to get something meaningful implemented and THAT is STILLin the implementation phase is a national disgrace.

Highly educated? Who?

Here Here Momoyama. These paragraphs are pure fire. Clearly argued. Don't expect anymore pushback on these pages because you have presented a knowledge based argument and Bahamians - to our detriment - operate on half truths and emotions. Thanks for the comments- rather refreshing.

Dear Mr. Johnson, Read the article in the competing paper and you will see that the number of discouraged unemployed persons is down because many have left the island to seek employment in Nassau. Keep smiling. Greentea.

You assume too much and this article is trash. I don't know these people- never heard of the Foundation asking for a heap of money from strangers and somehow that is my fault? Why should I have to do research before reading a supposedly competent newspaper's article about an organization asking for a half a million dollars? Isn't it the business of the paper to inform? Especially in a situation where fraud has already been committed? This is one of the reasons why they have only gotten 7000+ in pledges. They won't get close to the 400G they are seeking if they are as defensive as you. If the requested information isn't readily available at ALL media points, people will be suspicious and not prone to give. And frankly the timing is suspect. They "just" remember to do this after seeing the restauranteur being taken care of? Two years after the fact? Where did that 400K number come from? It reeks of opportunism. Without a clear explanation as to how the unpaid workers will be named and the money distributed to them, I wouldn't give them a red cent. And only 7000K raised so far tells me I am not alone. But heh- I hope the foundation members are willing to reach deep into their own pockets. Good luck with the drive.
