Statianews is going to be different

Dear Statianews reader.

Statianews started out with an emaillist of residents of St. Eustatius. I was living on the island and every month I would gather the news, make a pdf and send it around via that list. That local list now has about 800 emailadresses and outside of St. Eustatius, there are about the same amount of people that are sent news about the island from time to time.

When I left the island in 2010, I stopped making these pdf”s. But the mailinglist still continued, because people would be sending me emails to distribute to the community. I had a lot of work when the Nustar expansion discussion started and because of the relevance, I decided to copy all these letters to the editor and make a website.

The www.statianews.com website opened and I also copied all the other news I could find about Statia. Unfortunately, personally I couldn’t go on the lookout for news on the island self.

I did have my sources with whom I skyped and who I chatted with on facebook. But on the website, mostly news copied from other online sources.

I won’t close down this website, but I will stop copying news from other sources.

To know about rules, regulations, opinions about the island, I suggest you check www.sabanews.com.

If you want to recieve announcements, opinions, advertisements about Statia, please join the mailinggroup and send an email to info@statianews.com

This website will be my personal website. If you want to write on it, please do, send an email, or post a comment.

Thank you for all the support over the last years, it was great fun to live on St. Eustatius, I have made a lot of friends and I have grown to love the culture, history, nature and the residents on the island. It is in my view a nice peaceful melting pot.

All Statia, all the time!

This group hug is for Helmin Wiels, let us hope they get to the bottom of this and clean sweep that island, the people deserve better then this.

  1. pretty WE here as write this. Will rain EVER stop. JUST ONE ITEM THAT BUGS ME AND ,AMD MANY OTHERS HERE ON NEVIS. WE WOULD LOVE TO VISIT STATIA AND SABA BUT AS OF A FEW MONTHS AGO OUR FRIENDS FROM GUYANNA AND JAMAICA WOULD NEED A VISA. EH? HAD BEEN VISITORS TO BOTH ISLANDS BFFORE. I NEED A LOOKSEE BEFORE SETTING UP HYDEOPONIC OP THERE

    1. Visitors from Guyana don’t need a visa to come to statia and saba. Only to st.maarten.

      Jamaicans need a visa only if they are not in possession of a valid multiple entry USa/shengen or canadian visa.

      Hope this clarifies it.
