Our editorial policies will remain unchanged. Like the Today newspaper, we will stand for a critical but fair approach towards decision-makers; we will respect human rights; we will stand up for the environment and we will stand up the small man (and woman).
This weekend, we will continue to update the
StMaartenNews.com website with the news from the past week. When done, we will broadcast a newsletter with a recap of the week's news with some feature articles. Besides the
news of course, you can expect to see our
views on the topics of the day, our
reviews and analyses how these topics all tie in with the bigger picture and we will bring you
interviews with the relevant stakeholders, community and opinion leaders and with the ordinary man or woman in the streets as they see and experience things.
Thank you for your readership and do continue to enjoy our newsletter.
