The Editor speaks: Men’s Day – are you laughing?

Did you know that Tuesday November 19th is International Men’s Day? I didn’t? I haven’t received a Press Release from one of our government ministers applauding the day, unlike the female version. Yes men. It is us that have become second class. And we allowed it to happen. Actually, government (GIS) did arrange two activities […]

The Editor speaks: There are more questions than answers

Do some of you remember the popular Johnny Nash song of yesteryear, “There are more questions than answers”? The Chorus goes: “Pictures in my mind I will not show There are more questions than answers And the more I find out the less I know Yeah the more I find out the less I know” […]

Measure well, sound bad

By Paul McGowan From PS Audio Folks are often stumped when a unit that sounds great doesn’t measure great. Perhaps the THD is high, or the noise levels higher than expected. We chalk the mismatch between measurements and sound quality up to the unknown. It is assumed by many in our industry that the one […]

The Publisher speaks: Holiday Monday – who knows which one?

By Joan Wilson GOD IS GOOD – ALL THE TIME. We are having such a down pour right now (Tuesday) which we badly need. Yesterday (Holiday Monday), however was a beautiful and perfect day for the Gun Bay celebration. On my way up to Gun Bay I thought I’d be rained on according to what […]

The Publisher speaks: Missing pair of glasses – you won’t guess where I found them.

By Joan Wilson Gardening is my favorite past time but I do not garden with my glasses on. Last Monday, 10th October, I found myself gardening with my glasses on. I immediately removed them and put them on the back bumper of my SUV. I finished my gardening and cleaning up my place and returned […]

The Editor speaks: Why proper accounting is essential

The days are over when committees are set up with volunteers, a treasurer from within that committee is appointed and monies from outside are paid in, without any oversight. Whilst the Pirates Week Office accounts are scrutinized by the government appointed accountants, the District Committees accounts have not come under this umbrella. Things have changed. […]

The Editor speaks: Plots

The plotting that has been going on to get rid of US President Donald Trump ever since he won the Election is not new. Neither is the suspicion that Trump himself is encouraging it since there is an election next year. He is counting on the public’s ill taste at impeachment when the supposed crime(s) […]

The Editor speaks: Motorists Monday morning n’mare

By Colin Wilson It was utter chaos this morning for motorists. A Monday morning nightmare they had to endure getting to work, especially if they were coming in from the west and travelling east. There was first an accident at Newlands and even worse second one on Shamrock Road in the vicinity of Peanuts Gas […]

The Editor speaks: You’re first – after me!

was pleased to see the Press Release from the RCIPSs we have published today. It is has, unfortunately, the somewhat boring heading “RCIPS issues traffic advisory to road users”. We have used it as a sub-heading, chnging the main heading to “Police warn drivers they MUST indicate and other ‘nuances’ to help traffic flow”. I […]

The Editor speaks: Bernie bids “bye bye”

After clinging to the tail coat of his West Bay colleague House Speaker McKeeva Bush, Bernie Bush bid “Bye, bye” to the government benches, crossed the floor and joined the back benches. It comes as no surprise as it has been obvious for some time there had been a falling out between the two Bush’s. […]
