  • From Dagmar Prinz on Obituary Wolfgang Tooten

    Traurig habe ich von Deinem viel zu frühen Tod heute gelesen. Dass Du Dir einen Traum mit Saba erfüllt hast und eine glückliche Beziehung geführt hast freut mich von ganzem Herzen. Wir haben am Kartäuserwall eine Zeit unserer Jugend zusammen verbracht, das war eine schwierige Zeit. Auch an Deine Mutter kann ich mich noch gut erinnern. Es ist schlimm, dass sie Dich überleben musste und ich spreche Euch allen mein tiefstes Mitgefühl aus. Ruhe in Frieden. Dagmar

  • From Chris Meijvogel on Emergency services need to pass without obstructions

    When purchasing the present fire trucks, some facts had been known for a long time already.
    1. Saba has narrow roads;
    2. People have cars;
    3. Cars are parked. (I don’t mean stupid parking);
    It is assumed that these facts are taken into account when purchasing emergency vehicles.
    Apparently that did not happen.
    Remember the fire of the house next to the Seven Day Adventist Church when the fire trucks could not reach the house ?

    This is less by Jacob Gelt Dekker and more by Phillipe Gosse, who wrote “The Pirates Who’s Who” 🙂

      Thanks Ryan.
      We loved the story so Dekker pirated it in style.

  • From Dave Levenstone on Committee of Kingdom Relations dissattisfied with Governements progress

    I want to agree with Mr. Vernon Hassell fully that the time that it takes is way to long to get people registered that can come in to work. I can agree that the process should be well outlined and the period has to be shorten as it is very detrimental to any business place or person and it holds up the development of the island. I must say that for sure I am against this whole process being transferred fully to the Executive Council because I can foresee political favoritism being played. There has to be some form of control by a higher body. The office on Bonaire ahs to be reminded that for certain positions we do not have people sitting on a wall or under a tree waiting to get employed. The whole IND issue needs to be handled from Saba and not from Bonaire. When Saba opted to become part of Holland it was meant for direct ties (Saba-Holland-Saba) not ties that has to go through a third party. I differ though with Mr. Hassell when he says that the Dutch Government should send us some good hard working Dutch laborers. Let us keep it regionally and bring in our brothers and sisters from the Caribbean region, they has proven themselves here on Saba with the beautiful buildings that they has built.

  • From Emily on Tourist Office requests your lights on, Sunday evening May 26

    The Tourist Office requested that for ONE evening for 3 hours! They’re not asking people to leave on their lights every night or regularly. Having Saba on Google maps can also assist in promoting Saba.
