Exercise your democratic power
Interesting debates always emerge when the question is posed as to whether or not citizens living in democracies should feel obligated to vote. Most democracies were fought for. People who campaigned for freedom, self-governance and civil rights wer...
More focus needed on pedestrian safety
Being a pedestrian in New Providence is not easy. Many lose their lives each year navigating our streets. The Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) keeps a watchful eye on tourists and local pedestrians downtown, but elsewhere Bahamians are largely left...
Will there be a different result?
In November 2014, Dr. Hubert Minnis defeated Loretta Butler-Turner by a large margin, 298 votes to 106 votes, to retain the leadership of the Free National Movement (FNM). Butler-Turner is opposing him again – for good reason. Minnis has had a tou...
Opposition leaders must evolve their thinking on capital punishment

Fate of carnival linked to the election
The second Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival is over. It took hardcore attendees quite a while to recover after a weekend of frolicking. Many only took in a few hours of sleep between the Thursday and Sunday, with more liquor than water to sustain them. The...
Bahamian’s hoop dreams come true
Many Bahamians tuned in last night to the NBA Draft. Yes, we are basketball fans but that’s not the main reason much of the country watched. A local boy who became an American college basketball star was about to get his chance in the big league. ...
