• From Jelle van der on Saba Comprehensive bans mobile devices

    So banning phones will stop bullying? Disappointing to see no strong action is being taken.

    • From Lupe on Saba Comprehensive bans mobile devices

      I’d argue that this is strong action, but its more deflecting responsibility from the school rather than preventing online bullying.

  • From Chris on BES Air ready to fly, but runs into bureaucracy

    Saba definitely needs better affordable transport links by air as well by sea – Winair is government owned and our only flight option – so this makes it doubly wrong that we pay such high prices for such a limited service – but this also probably explains the problems experienced by BES Air.

    Now we have to solve the first problem, the Air connection. We are ready!

  • From Drs René Caderius van Veen on Behavioral change experts visit Saba

    As long as the local government is not sharing information about decisions – which is obligatory – they still have to learn a lot!

  • From Tourism on the islands, particularly St Eustatius, and Saba on BES Air ready to fly, but runs into bureaucracy

    Improved, convenient and reliable air service for the BES islands,would be a major plus toward economic growth,stability and development of the islands. Presently, the lone air service provided by Win Air is questionable, due to scheduled limited flights,no freight and costly passenger ticket rates between the islands, via St Maarten.
    With an additional air service provider, with the capacity of the air carrier mentioned, one can expect commerce,tourism and construction on the islands, particularly, St Eustatius, Bonaire and Saba,to create greater opportunities for business growth, on these islands. Opportunities such as hotel construction,manufacturing,banking would revolutionize social integration, thus reflecting in GDP growth, increase employment and finance.

  • From Sally Siegner on Saba Lace room opened

    I am so happy to see this. These ladies have worked so hard to find a special place to do their lace work. I was privileged to be a part of this group for a short time.

  • From René CADERIUS VAN VEEN on Doppers for Saba to reduce single-use plastic bottles

    Dear Kees Jansen,
    The situation is even more strange. There are almost exactly no more than 1000 people on the island who have a voting right!

  • From Kees Jansen on Doppers for Saba to reduce single-use plastic bottles

    What? On an island with 1600 inhabitants you find almost 200 civil servants?
    This holds that if one does not count the children, the disabled and the retired persons, that some 50% of the persons that can work are civil servants? WOW!!!!!!

    I understood that the civil servants on Saba are well paid, they recently even got a 5% pay raise. So now they receive a free Dopper bottle?
    The government is always complaining about the high level of poverty on the island. I presume that they do not mean the civil servants. So why not let the civil servants pay for the Dopper bottles and give these for free to the less lucky ones that have to do the work?
