• A God-pleasing and humane solution

    I read with shock in The Royal Gazette Newspaper on April 9th, 2014 that there are 300 homeless people in Bermuda. In this modern day and time for so many to be unsheltered is a disgrace and is totally unacceptable. I am a Bermudian living between Bermuda and the United States and a retired Master of Social work of 15 years both in Bermuda and the US and there is no reason that so many people should be...

  • Donít change for changeís sake

    Over the recent years, changing hasnít really helped the tourism industry much (and closing down Dolphin Quest because of captured dolphins after 20 years, wonít help it either). Weíre talking about the following:

    1. Bermuda used to have a Triminghamís, a Smithís, a Store or Reliability, a Archie Brown & Son, a popular Pirateís Port and many other shops about.

    Disconnected

    In response to (Member of Parliament) Rolfe (Commissiongís) letterís veiled contempt; everything I say or write can be veiled when seen through the colouration of a jaundiced mind. Taking his points in order; He shoots my efforts in South Africa as an effort to save them from themselves, which is entirely an accusation with no reference other than his misgivings about anything I do. Here is classic example of Mr Commissiong, rather than involve and promote something which is...

    ďAccidents Waiting to HappenĒ

    You know, for all of the banter, that some persons say about the former Progressive Labour Party Government, one thing is clear, and that is that they felt the pulse of the people of this country, and were working to see that the needs of the people were met. Mr Editor, I feel compelled to write this letter as I have been waiting patiently to hear something from the One Bermuda Alliance Government on three very...

  • Reverse this decision

    I must go on record as firmly opposed to the decision to deny the Middleton Project Production Crew a work permit to pursue their project in Bermuda. The news of this ill considered course of action has already made Bermuda look both foolish, repressive and afraid of the truth, to a global audience. I encourage the minister responsible (assuming he acted alone) to reverse his decision immediately, and show that Bermudians (at least non-government...

  • Whatís next?

    After 20 years weíve had a Dolphin Quest, people overseas suddenly want Bermuda to shut it down, a tourist attraction (itís bad enough many clothes stores donít exist anymore). Hereís something most havenít noticed so far:

    1. Bermuda is the only country, that has a mall that closes at 5pm (some countries canít afford a mall but thatís besides the point as, letís focus on the ones that can for now).

    2. Bermuda hasnít had a Store of Reliability...

  • Obviously anti-competitive

    I am in the process of buying a new car and was immediately drawn to Kia for the five year warranty. However, I was shocked to hear that to maintain the warranty you are required not only one, but two services per year. On top of that, these services must be carried out by the local dealer for an annual cost of nearly $700. I did a little research and Kiaís ownerís manual does indeed specify that level of service and a quick read of the US warranty (not...

  • Delusions of grandeur

    Once again, Sir John Swan has given his vision of a future Bermuda ... presumably long after heís gone. Big dreams and massive change are fine but I sincerely doubt that very many of his fellow Bermudians are willing to sacrifice their homeland so that he can get richer. A Bermuda of high rise apartment buildings and tramways all through Hamilton to say nothing of his plans for a waterfront that would make Hong Kong look like a rural village ... not my...

  • Does City have a view on sewage?

    Perhaps I missed an article, but I was wondering if your paper has inquired with the Corporation of Hamilton regarding the sewage issue. From my understanding (obtained via reading your articles), the pipeline in question dumps City waste and is owned by the Corporation. As such, I think it would be helpful to get the Corporationís perspective on this issue and how they plan to resolve it. Yes this is a national issue, but surely the Corporation must take...

  • A wrong decision on film crew

    The Shadow Minister Wayne Furbert was certainly correct when he pointed out that we would have been better off if Minister Fahy had given the film crew the permission to work here. None of us (or at least very few of us) want to be reminded of the tragedy and miscarriage of justice surrounding Rebecca Middleton. But we have no control over that. The film will be done with or without our permission to do it here. We would have been so much better off if...

  • Two things that didnít happen

    There are two things that didnít happen in the Middleton case, and I wonder why. First, why didnít the Govt of the day, pay the family an agreed price in acknowledgment of police error (because thatís exactly what it was) and make the whole thing go away and two, why did we not grant the work permit but reserve the right to edit the production?
