  • From Tricia on Town hall meetings about tourism: June 7th and 9th

    First Of all……Tourism?!?!? Saba needs more then just-one-dive-shop! That is..if we want tourism to stay at a level we desire here…as a tourist diving/hiking destination. (We do have more then one trail…..Thank God!) Imagine we had only one grocery or one restaurant??????
    The Government need to encourage this get some attention! And encourage this Avenue gets priority & encouragement to fill the other licenses on island! (Along with the island collecting more needed business tax dollars for Saba!)
    While moving here to open and run a business, there were 3 dive companies. Bringing many a tourist to Saba. What the heck happened to one of our main industries here on island??????? Start with this thought, answers appreciated.

  • From Capt. Jack Sparrow on Island Council Member Hemmie van Xanten resigned from WIPM party

    As an outsider looking in…..if you resign from your party, then you should be gone altogether. You were elected as a representative of “that” party and its beliefs. Next election you can run as an independant and try your luck.

    Did anyone see a report on the May 13th break-in in Windwardside at the cottage behind Brigadoon? If there hasn’t been a report, why not? The perpetuator left their cell phone after a hasty exit and the police have or had it.

  • From René CADERIUS VAN VEEN on Saba Tourism Master Plan process started

    The focus should be on “Soft Tourism”. Marketing with targetgroups for diving, hiking, nature, relaxing etc.
    Almost each and every country in the world has organisations for this category of tourism.

  • From René Caderius van Veen on New traffic ordinance approved 

    Just a few questions:
    Will sitting in the back of a truck still be allowed?
    How do insurance companies deal with cases of passengers in the back of a truck when they will be injured in an accident?
    Will parking cars close to a corner still be allowed?
    Will there be a limit to the noise level of car radios?

  • From Anton Hermans on Opinion: CXC troubles again

    Indeed, CXC announced that the 2022 CSEC and CAPE examinations will be postponed for three weeks (https://www.nationnews.com/2022/04/27/cxc-exams-postponed-three-weeks/)

    However, CSEC Visual Arts will continue as scheduled and commence this week.

    The 2022 examination results will be released late August / early September. Students who wish to continue to study in The European part of The Netherlands, will not be affected by the delayed results. They can still leave to pursue their choice of studies as soon as they have written their final exam. (if they meet the graduation criteria of course). Students entering other tertiary educational institutions should inform the college/university of their choice as soon as possible to avoid deregistration.

    The Ministry of Education has informed us that they will extend the special law which is in effect since 2021 to allow students who write the 2022 examinations to provide a copy of their diploma between September and December 2022.
