Letter: The death of education

February 20, 2016

Letter: A response to Oliver Mills

February 17, 2016

Letter: Independence: A state of mind

February 17, 2016
Until recently, if someone had asked me if the TCI was ready for independence, my standard answer would have been No, with the caveat that we could be made ready within eight to ten years once we properly set ourselves on that path. However, it occurred to me...

Letter: What is leadership?

January 28, 2016
The above question sounds simple enough, and when answering many will tell you that leadership is simply being in charge or in command, being the one to make the decisions. While this is absolutely true, we must understand that leadership is so much more than that.

Letter: A colonized mind

January 23, 2016
The consequence of colonization throughout the world has had far reaching results that we must come to grips with here in the still colonized Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) and the wider Caribbean for that matter. The system was pretty simple and straightforward.

Letter: Effectual fervent leadership

January 23, 2016
In today’s world system the topic of leadership, more importantly ‘effectual fervent’ leadership that creates ‘positive change’, should be considered by constituents from all arenas whether communities, churches, school groups or other institutions.

Letter: Save our schools

January 18, 2016
Education in the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) is in serious trouble! This purpose of this articulation is to explicitly expose the continuous education crisis that is unfolding within the TCI so that the citizens of these islands and voters alike can come face to face with...

Letter: Was Judge Schuster even qualified to be appointed a judge of the Supreme Court?

May 28, 2015
As much as we may like, this issue of appointing shady and questionable judges to the Supreme Court will not go away. This issue is with us to stay. Judge Schuster raises an interesting and critical dilemma for the legal profession, the Supreme Court, the Judicial Services Commission.

Letter: Let's clean these islands

April 17, 2015
Turks and Caicos -- Littering continues to be a big problem in our Islands. It is time we do something definitive and permanent to resolve this major problem. As a child, whenever we were expecting visitors or company, our first duty was to clean up and tidy our small home.

Letter: Is corruption continuing?

April 15, 2015
It is with great regret that I acknowledge that you have finally demonstrated yourself to be nothing more than another incompetent and or corrupt British bureaucrat and paper tiger. The tenure of Governor Gordon Wetherell was a God-send for this country.

Letter: Stop the cover-up of the hospital scam with fake audits

April 3, 2015
Like we suspected and knew the art of the whitewash and the cover-up continues. First, this year the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) governor reluctantly allowed a review of the Financial Services Commission (FSC). That review came back with ‘approval’ because there was no real investigation.

Letter: Weak leadership in the TCI - a Caribbean trend

April 1, 2015
The decision to postpone the governing Progressive National Party (PNP) annual convention is not surprising, shocking or alarming. For the Turk and Caicos Islands (TCI) it may be best deemed “business as usual”. The reasons are not clear but it seems that the party’s rank and file...

Letter: Integrity Commission compromised?

March 23, 2015
