Our Budget, Our Reality

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – When 2022 was brought in with many fireworks and festive activities all around the island I wondered if this would be the year of recovery or if this would be another year of drama for the country.Will we allow our future to determine our presentdecisions and actions, or must our present time take precedenceat the expense ofour future?Based on our experience it would seem as though we as a country are incapable of creating a situation in which we do not suffer at present while actively enhancing the prospective future.

I believe some good news thus far for the Caribbean islands was the departure of State Secretary Raymond Knops whose own party told him there was no place for him in the new government moving forward Read more

Mp George Pantophlet- What Is The Fuss.

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – Member of Parliament George Pantophlet is asking the people of St. Maarten to allow him this brief distraction from his quest for debt cancellation, to address a very serious matter.

MP Pantophlet thought he misread the paragraph of an article appearing in The Daily Herald newspaper on Thursday entitled Sarah: Civil Code does not contain amendments made by Parliament.

What caught the MPs attention was the phrase: Then there is this constant fuss in Parliament about an initiative law amendment of 2011 by the NA [National Alliance] faction to address short term labor contracts that – in view of some MPs -is being frustrated.

After reading this, MP Pantophlet looked up the meaning of the word ‘fuss’ Read more

Recently, I have taken note of some developments on St. Maarten. The most recent one being the shortening of opening hours for nighttime entertainment clubs, bars, restaurants etc. This has brought some thoughts to mind and I will express them via this article.
