Kinda sad IMO. Perhaps these 4 Gents are like 75% of the Bahamian Population and don't yet have enough information from the FNM in order to feel like the VAT hike is the best plan of action, or what the Country truly needs. Perhaps if they were more included they would have felt better about supporting the budget, and would have been able to also share the same with their Constituents. Or they could just say yes boss, yes boss, yes boss...

Probably unlicensed, uninsured tour operator. Just as the airline hackers are targeted for their danger to customers, these "boat hackers" also need to be shut down before someone seriously gets hurt and/or sued.

Not great to look at but after the huge swell we've had there is going to be trashed items and also items brought in with the wind/swell. No huge dumpsters around, so in a pile near the bush out of the way seems better than on the beach to get pulled back in the ocean. Should have asked whats going on with the Eastern Access - steps were getting done quickly then full stop, now no visible work done since March 15th.

The EU is probably worried about losing credibility if they quickly reverse our blacklisting, so it might be at least another quarter until they change anything. Like it was said, the damage may already have been done. Another unfortunate negative tickbox for our Island Nation.

Cool yea, just hope they do something with sense. Think that depth chart is in meters. Could always just setup a pier to fish from for Tuna/Wahoo while we're at it :)

The "shelf" cuts far into Eleuthera in the area of the Glass Window so there is very deep water only a few feet offshore. Therefore ocean energy travels closer to the land unhindered in this area. 900ft deep is a lot to build up a reef from :)

1. I think a causeway out into the calm side is a better idea than constantly battling the Atlantic Ocean. If you build a higher arch in the existing area, the supports will still be affected by ocean swells.

2. I like hearing about the mangrove replanting but I hope good research is done as to where to plant them and also in protecting existing growths of natural mangroves. No sense planting a bunch of mangroves on a windward or ocean facing coast.

Hmmm. Has anyone taken a look at all the food products that contain high fructose corn syrup?
https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/... Wouldn't it be a Catch 22 to impose a "sin tax" on a "VAT Free - breadbasket item" like Ketchup? I know they had proposed to re-arrange the breadbasket list but not sure Ketchup would be removed. Seems like they're just brainstorming but...

Would like to see more green initiatives vs Dinosaur technology and messy crude oil storage but I understand the draw. My worries would be the tankers coming from other foreign countries and little care/attention/regulation when it comes to their oil transfer to the mainland, and when and where they are allowed to empty their ballast water. All kind of crud, crap, and invasive marine species could be in that ballast water.

Last point...anyone find it strange that there are no available MLS realty listings for East Grand Bahama? Who is holding on to the property waiting for things to develop in East GB. Would like to think private citizens could be allowed to buy their piece of East Coast GB beach property but there's nothing available???

Sounds good. Would be nice to put a proper bus terminal on one of the abandoned properties near Hoffer as well. lol at the dominoes playing comment :)
