Make no mistake, the glory days are long gone. Hope for the best but realistically, given our size, its almost a forgone conclusion that we are getting closer to the point of no return..

So many similarities between Chipman, Rollins, McCartney, etc. Its the way it should be and the,way it is. Knowing the difference can avoid a lot of wasted time..

Socrates says...

I don't agree with gov't telling citizens under threat of jail time or fine what to do. Gov't is too alert citizens to hazards and threats and let them make their own decision understanding you are on your own. I would much rather rude out in my place than go elsewhere, which in all likelihood, will be no safer than where you are. Despite all good intentions, this appears to be a knee-jerk reaction copying others.

An investigation needs to draw conclusions, but it appears the affected tanks may have been fitted with 'floating' roofs? If so, the obvious question would be should we not have that type of storage tank any longer but the usual traditional design? Hope they look into this technical aspect.

owners will have to decide what they wish to do... hold on and rebuild or sellout and call it quits.. at tge end of the day, its their decision ... nobody can steal anyone else's property.. the legal documents didn't disappear with the storm.. they should be on file in the registry i believe..

Why did the incompetent gov't negotiators ever agree to this? obviously, they were directed from higher up. if you can spare an employee for 3 years and during that absence they are doing nothing to benefit future of the organization, clearly you are overstaffed and management should be instructed to either make staff redundant or lay them off. again another example, in case we needed one, of the useless governments we have had in this Bahamas for so long.

its intellectually dishonest to say local airlines have to pay FAA for 'privilege' to overfly own country. my online research indicates overflight fees are basically a charge to recover cost of providing a service e.g. personnel and infrastructure including communication, radar, etc. so Bahamas agreed americans provide this service last almost 70 years and we have to pay for it...

everyone knows gov't is preeminent. so, whatever land they need, they can take. simply need to agree payment to owners. they've done this many times before to build low cost housing and extend/expand roads.
