The politics of crime
There have been 88 murders in 2016, as compared to the 134 murders recorded up to this point in 2015. Last year there were a record 146 murders. Since Sunday, three people were killed in separate incidents in New Providence. A shooting on Monday nigh...
 
 
It is time to end the death penalty
We agree wholeheartedly with the Catholic bishops in their call for an end to the death penalty. This newspaper has held that position for some time. The death penalty is irreversible and the criminal justice system often gets it wrong. Additionally...
 
 
Mourning for America
It is unclear how Donald Trump will govern when he is sworn in as president of the United States on January 20, 2017. His victory on November 8 defied the polls and left reasonable people shocked around the world. We too are surprised that America el...
 
 
Decency and following the law
Hurricane Matthew caused damage to homes across New Providence. Those who live on the southern coast took the hardest hit, as storm surge accompanied the 140-mile-per-hour winds. Furniture and appliances were lost due to flood damage. In the days af...

Sears must continue the fight
The Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) candidate for Fort Charlotte Alfred Sears did not get his wish. He hoped to challenge Perry Christie at the now postponed PLP convention. The event was scheduled for this month, but the party put it off, it said, ...
 
 
FNM must keep up pressure on PLP over Andros
The controversy surrounding the secret Andros land proposal is not going away. The Bahamian and Chinese governments are in talks regarding a $2.1 billion agriculture and fisheries deal in on the island. It would involve between 10,000 and 20,000 acre...
 
 
Casualties of political war
The Free National Movement (FNM) is in the process of finalizing its candidates for the next general election. The last general election was in May 2012. The one before was in May 2007. It’s likely the next vote will be in the spring of 2017. Dr. ...
