• From Jack on Statia continues to remove roaming animals

    In the 2020 report of Hannah Madden, made for the Statian Government, goat numbers were estimated to 7602 plus or minus 1555. From other investigations we know that an island population of goats can double in 1.6 years, which means, for Statia, a monthly increase of 400-500 goats.
    The above mentioned program removed just 516 goats in a period of 8 months.
    Everone can see and do the math. This way of approaching a severe problem doesn’t work at all. Instead of diminishing the number of goats, it has increased in that period with at least 2,800.
    The Redonda example is general known I think.

    And this is only the goat population. Sheep, pigs, donkeys, cows, chicken, etc. do their best the erode the island faster and faster.

    Discrimination? In the Netherlands people also pay for the home they are living in. So, just wait some time, and it will appear here also. Step 1 was the restructuring of the kadaster, step 2 was the military inventarisation of buildings. Step 3 will be more taxes.

    The reproduction rate is much higher, so this does not work good.

    We are not residents of Saba. Taxation without representation does not appear proper.

  • From Elmer on Traffic control on J.Z. Ridge Road

    LAUGHABLE The police do absolutely NOTHING about traffic regulations!!!

    “Compliance with the rules of the traffic regulation is strongly advised. This also con­tributes to safe traffic on the island,” the police said in a statement on Wednesday.

  • From Linda de Veer on TEACHING ON SABA EXPLAINED IN SIX PARADOXES

    Hi Rhiannon,

    What a great blog about teaching on Saba! I really enjoyed reading about the students, since I am also a teacher for youngsters on Bonaire.
    I would like to get in contact with a teacher of Dutch on your beautiful island. Do you know some teachers? It would be great to hear from you.

    Best regards,

    Linda

  • From Peace on Traffic control on J.Z. Ridge Road

    Suggestion for a next step in traffic/ noise control: How about loud music, nightly races and noisy (dirt/motor) bikes/quads etc.? Can we please do something about that?
