• From Chris on Winair quits CN-Express due to financial constraints

    No one helped Saba after Irma and Maria – island held to ransom of making people pay to charter when needing to get to or from island – no office is not an excuse in an electronic age – if they were able to charter flights to people, then they were able to run flights to island. Winair were running free evacuation flights from SXM to Antigua – so they could have run flights to Saba and St Eustatia as well.

  • From Wim Hesselink on Winair quits CN-Express due to financial constraints

    The solution for this problem was already there one year ago. We can start straight away. Due to the BES law and the unwilling ILT ( Inspectie Leefbaarheid en Transport) we cannot start our operation with new aircraft from Statia. Discussions are ongoing in The Hague.

  • From Wolfgang on Sneek is furious about Winair opting out of CN-Express service

    The SBA (Saba Business Association) agrees with Koos 100%. This is ridiculous and a pity. Obviously, we need an alternative to WinAir.

  • From Deanna (Johnson) McDowell on Two illnesses added to neonatal screening

    I am of Saban (parents, grandparents and great grands) descent and have Pernicious Anemia, diagnosed in late 30″s. Now my daughter is diagnosed with it. She’s in her 30’s. Just need monthly shots of b12.

  • From Another Concerned Saban on Three years asked for suspected involvement in student's death

    It seems that with such a lenient sentence that perhaps there is not strong enough evidence to convict him of murder, manslaughter and rape. So, the three years are being sought for him being culpable of homicide. I wonder whether more time would be pegged on for the possession of child pornography.
    Three years is no time to spend for raping and murdering Ms. Guda.

  • From Villapend on Preventive check of police

    They can just randomly search & seize people here now? What about their rights? Don’t they need just cause?

  • From Concerned in Saba on Three years asked for suspected involvement in student's death

    I am very concerned about the lenient suggested sentence in this case. I’m aware that I don’t know all of the details, but what I do know makes me wonder how three years could possibly be enough. I would like to know what others think about this.

  • From Gilbert Agard on Research vessel to visit islands in Feb. & March

    The Sea is a branch of the Tree of life. Its one of the main source to human existence. Scientific research of this type, can do much to guide authorities as regards the changing conditions to underwater life, through the region, and what solutions are necessary to prevent further destruction. As a consequence, I would suggest possible invitations be extended to authorities in other regions within the Caribbean Seas, surrounding the Eastern Caribbean, especially those of Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Guyana, where there is much exploits for fish stocks are challenged through the use of dangerous chemicals for the control of oil spills, nuclear waste dumping, offshore drilling. All sea waters mix at various points around the world, so what is emitted in the Dutch Caribbean waters, will certainly mix and affect sea waters and sea life around the entire globe. Lets us not be myopic to think that we are not affected, but rather make the sensible, collective effort to clean up our seas and environment.
