We truly wish Guyana the best of luck!

Of the 15 countries that make up the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Guyana stands out as having tremendous but untapped development potential. The cooperative republic on the South American mainland is blessed with a total land mass covering an area of 83,000 square miles. To illustrate the sheer vastness of Guyana, Barbados, with an area of […]

Keeping class wear where it duly belongs

Quite recently, our teachers have been in the news –– their merits and demerits; their position (on matters like the SBAs) against the positions of others. Some views expressed have called for greater “respect” for teachers; others, like MP Cynthia Forde’s, have suggested teachers respect themselves even more –– as it pertains to dress at […]

Whodunnit? . . . And why? . . . And how?

 The tragic death of 12-year-old Shemar Patrick Weekes last Thursday, and the investigation into the circumstances of his demise have raised another issue, which it is hoped will be given full vent by the authorities at some stage. We often take it for granted that in cases of murder or other homicides we are equipped […]

Time to stop the madness among PSVs!

Have readers been observing what we have been? The emergence of a worrying trend, in the past few months, where it seems that every time a commuter gets on a public service vehicle (PSV), he or she faces exposure to the high risk of becoming involved or, worse yet, being seriously injured in a traffic […]

Painful lesson from St Lucy child tragedy

The suspected suicide of 12-year-old Shamar Weekes, occurring in the midst of the annual observance of Child Month, has sent shockwaves through the nation. To the best of our knowledge, a tragedy of this kind in Barbados is unprecedented, at least in living memory. As expected, it has left Barbadians painfully wondering what could have […]

. . . On being our very own worst enemy

There was a time in Barbados when parents and grandparents ensured that a common teaching was passed on to children as part of their socialization. It emphasized the importance of recognizing and understanding that, in this life, there is a time and a place for everything. This teaching was taken to heart, and was reflected […]

. . . Suffer not our children to the ungodly

But Jesus said, Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. –– Matthew 19:14. It was bad enough that parents would bring their infants to Jesus that he might touch and bless them, only to be impulsively, insensitively and imprudently rebuked by the […]

Our citizens do deserve much clearer channels

We return to the judiciary and the crisis that exist of Barbadians accessing timely justice. There is a culture of talk in Barbados that often passes as the solution. Many of our legal, political and administrative brains identify myriad problems at discussions, seminars, retreats and conferences, enjoy mandatory lunch fare and cocktails, and return to […]

Better Govt communication is surely key

The embattled Freundel Stuart administration –– but more so Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Chris Sinckler –– has good reason to smile today and feel upbeat following some small but encouraging developments on the economic front during the past week. Except for the warning about the need for public sector reform and reducing the […]
