When building major projects you have to take into consideration the utilities like water and electricity, not forgetting garbage, and the ever infamous infrastructure. Blame your power outages on the lack of vision by GEBE over the last 20 years.

HURRICANE KATIA: NEW TROPICAL STORM ALERT FOR ST MAARTEN AND THE CARIBBEAN

 

 

New hurricane alert: Katia confirmed on course towards the US

The National Hurricane Centre's 2010 storm chart

Weather experts have today warned another huge hurricane is in the making and fear it is on course to batter the Caribbean and the United States.

Tropical Depression 12, which will be known as Hurricane Katia, is currently south of the Cape Verde islands, and is predicted to start heading west across the Atlantic as it builds up power.

The US National Hurricane Centre said it is likely the massive weather system will be upgraded to Tropical Storm status today and it is expected to be classified as a hurricane by Thursday morning.

It is forecast to reach the Caribbean region next weekend.

Storm forecasters spotted the new system over the weekend and it looks likely to be as big – if not bigger – than Hurricane Irene, which blasted through the US East Coast over the weekend.

The NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center said it is expecting an above-normal hurricane season in the Atlantic this year.

The outlook calls for 14 to 19 named storms, with seven to ten becoming hurricanes and three to five expected to become a major hurricane (category 3 or higher).

According to the NHC, there are no other low pressure systems currently threatening land.


 

 

LATEST ON THE OMAR “CHUCKY” NELSON CAPTURE

Omar “Chucky” Nelson, who escaped from prison in March, was recaptured in Union Farm, this morning. Our sources contacted us with the news, and said that there would be more info. Evidently, Chucky was found in the very same place that there had been numerous sightings of him. Although there had been many reports to the police of seeing him in the Dutch Quarter / Union Farm area, according to the police in April of 2011, reports of him commiting crimes were false.

There were further sightings and reports of breaking and entry throughout May and June, and in July, the police were involved in a shoot out with Chucky.

Chucky managed to escape, unscathe, but a bystander was shot.

In late July the police were involved in another shoot out, with a car that was supposedly carrying “Chucky”, but although the driver and passengers in the cars were involved in illicit activity, Chucky could not be found.

In August there were complaints of further crimes being committed by Chucky including allegedly the stealing of guns and abduction.

The police along with the assistance of other auxiliary and Dutch forces did an early morning raid, at the same vicinity that Chucky had previously been seen by witnesses for months, and the arrest was made.

There are reports that other suspects have been arrested in conjunction with the aiding and abetting of Chucky, but our source provided no names.

THEO CLAIMS THE RATS ARE EATING THE ASPHALT, HERE’S ALSTON WITH A SOLUTION :)

 
ok i got an idea….
Instead of asking Holland for Money, our government should ask them for cheese (kaas), so public works can put the cheese alongside the road, so rats won’t eat the asphalt… things must REALLY be hard when rats decide to start eating the frikkin asphalt out the road! then again, im sure these rats are not tourist rats but are citizens, so I guess I can understand their desperation…

THEO…WHO’S ANDREW? YOU WERE BRIBING AND BUYING VOTES DOWN COLEBAY TOO? by microbes and megabytes.

photo: judith roumou....theo heyliger, kurt ruan, sarah westin-williams,

We can say it in many different ways but the truth is a large majority of voters accepted bribes in

one way or another and deserve exactly what they deserve because before Theo,

there was grand-daddy Claude and he polished “voters fraud” down sweetly with blocks,

fridges and huge parties and waterspouts shows, free BBQ,

beer and other shiny tinkles to dazzle the “SHEEPLE”.

When we sell our votes today its for a lot less, its for laptops and sometimes as low as $50. and a promise .

The reason I won’t shut up is because I know i’ts true that Theo was buying votes,

using Andrew from Cole Bay as one of his many front men –

It’s clear Sarah raise to power was because of her influence and power in issuing scholarships and on and on and on…..
Votes were sold and bought on St.Maarten and that is illegal,

they do what they want because they have paid the whores and now we all must swallow, so sit in

traffic and shut up!

The tower of Decay that the government of St Maarten is constructing is constructed on the naive

slave mentality of the Dutch St Maarten Locals who has and obviously will accept anything.
Will Cole Bay People Protest sitting in Traffic for hours or having there business closes for close to 1 month?

HELLLLL NO …WE Love  BIg DADDY Theo !

SO WHY WAS DR FOEKEN CONVICTED? MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS

Firstly he didnt “rape” her, secondly he was convicted AFTER returning to the island and served his time. The ship NEVER docked in sxm but curacao. please get your facts straight before posting nonsense. Both the young girl’s mother and the girl in question are still very much in contact with said doctor. He never abused his patients and what happened to be a family matter turned out as it usually does to be a revengeful act from those who wanted to break him. As for guaranteed clientelle that was not the case either. He suffered the consequences for his actions. “He who is without fault, cast the first stone” I hope your lives are “perfect”……Let God be his judge. What does it benefit you to dig up dirt? Look at what is currently happening right infront of your very noses which need alot more attention right about now.

 

I’ll step in as a neutral party. Neville didn’t say he raped her, the commentor did.
If he was convicted…..then he was convicted for SOMETHING
The ship docked in Curacao, not in SXM the commentor was wrong, but is location the point here?
Why don’t you send us the “facts”, since we are obviously ignorant in this.
The abused often forgive their abusers, and remain in contact…your point is?
Who said anything about him abusing his patients…anywhere? You’re the first person to bring it up.
Rape AND CHILD MOLESTATION IS ALWAYS ONLY A FAMILY MATTER IN ST MAARTEN!
He was set up? What was he convicted for again? Did someone put the child in his lap? (rhetorical quest.)
As for guaranteed clientelle, I was made to believe that he is guaranteed ALL the HOOKERS ALL WEEK EVERY WEEK…..please correct if I’m wrong.
…”he suffered the consequences of his actions..” What actions? According to you he didn’t do anything wrong.
Everybody has faults and is imperfect. So what you’re saying is that you DON’T believe it’s a fair question, to ask St Maarteners if they want to be treated
by a convicted doctor?
Who’s throwing stones? You must be Stuart Johnson! A doctor who has been denied SVB clients, has posted a VERY profound blog, and he wasn’t even mean about it. I know Neville, this is one of his “nicer” blogs.
Everyone I know, myself included are struggling, and are not leading perfect lives…what is your POINT again?
God is always the ultimate judge. We did not mention Dr Foeken in our poll question, it was a general question.
Nobody dug up dirt! This is public knowledge, or should be. You don’t have to dig it up, if it’s lying on the surface!
And NOBODY blogs more about the current situation in St Maarten..BUT US!
Now my question to you is……..
1) WHY WAS HE CONVICTED AGAIN?
2) WHY DID HE FLEE AGAIN?
3) HE ACTUALLY SERVED TIME?
4) DO YOU DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN RAPE AND STATUTORY RAPE?
5) YOU KNOW A LOT ABOUT THIS…ARE YOU DR. FOEKEN?
6) DO YOU CONSIDER RAPE OR INCEST TO BE A FAMILY MATTER?
7) WHO WAS TRYING TO BREAK HIM? THE ILLUMINATI? 8) HOW MUCH TIME DID HE SERVE?
9) WHAT CONSEQUENCES DID HE HAVE TO SUFFER?
10) WHAT ACTIONS DID HE COMMIT TO FACE THOSE CONSEQUENCES?
11) DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW IF YOUR DOCTOR IS A CONVICTED CRIMINAL?

These questions are not facetious…..
I really wanna know.
thanks

BLOG ADVISORY: TO CONTRIBUTORS AND SOURCES…

I post many different blogs, by many different people. Sometimes they want to be published with their real names, sometimes they want to use a pseudonym.

If I tell you that I’m going to publish your  blog, comment or whatever, and you agree….then I assume that “as is” is how you want it published.

If you want to use a pseudonym or no name, that’s great,

but you have to specify.

I had to post a blog, because two people authorized me to post their blogs, then complained that I had posted their full names.

Sorry about that,

but then again you have to specify, how you want us to post your blog.

Once the blogs run through the feeds, the content can be changed but the title might remain the same.

That’s why it’s very important to people to leave instructions with what they want posted.

As far as I know, there is no one with proven psychic abilities.

If you have the guts to post something,

post it!

If you don’t have the courage to put your name to what you’ve written, then leave a note, life could be much simpler.

To the people criticizing my blog about “gun permits”, I understand what you’re trying to say, and although I do appreciate any corrections, it is difficult for you to gauge my whole stance from ONE blog, when there are literally thousands.

Many people don’t have a worldwide platform, except for these blogs.

It would not be difficult to simply exlude the opinions of others,

but then that would be counter-active.

I can dish it, as well as I can take it,

but if you’re coming with an opinion based on one blog, when there are thousands,

then you’re hard to take seriously.

People ask to post to this blog, because they know that their blogs will get hits.

If anyone is unfamiliar with how the blog is run, then they should simply peruse the site, and THEN decide if they want to post here.

60.000 hits later…………………….

8 complaints with 678 blogs!!!!!

Those are good numbers.

I don’t care WHO YOU ARE! 🙂

 

TALKING ‘BOUT CRIMES: DR DE WEEVER DISCUSSES THE SXM DOCTOR WHO RAPED A CHILD, BUT THE GOVERNMENT ALLOWS HIM TO PRACTICE!

Talking about crime. The other day I heard a very sad story. A Dutch doctor, a general practitioner, who had been living and working in Saint Martin for quite some time sexually abused a young girl. He was caught and convicted and sentenced to serve time in prison. While in prison he escaped and left the island. Some time later he returned on a tourist boat, and instead of being put back in prison he was allowed to continue working as a doctor and being affiliated with the SVB. I just don’t understand how this could happen. Did he have special connections with Mr. Claude Wathey as the other doctors working in Saint Martin who Mr. Wathey gave permission to work here although the Department of Health of the Netherlands Antilles in Curacao did not recognize their diplomas? And this while 2 Saint Martin Doctors, dr. Lloyed Richardson (studied in Mexico) and Dr. Daphne Illis were denied permission? Where was Dr. Wathey to help his own people? Most probably the Richardson and Illis familiy did not vote for him. Was the convicted abusive doctor subjected to a psychiatric evaluation before he
was allowed to return to work? I was living in Holland at the time so I am not really familiar with the story. Maybe persons who are could write about it.
Dr. Neville de Weever LaBega.
