JEREMY DEACON

Bermuda Blue: Why we should all take time to chill out this Cup Match

Jeremy Deacon: I'm glad Cup Match is just around the corner, not because it’s four days off or the fact that I am intending to spend those four days sleeping in front of the TV.

Why I’m frustrated by the ‘murder on our roads’

Jeremy Deacon on Friday lamented Bermuda's driving habits, quoting the police - "You're more than twice as likely to die on the roads as in a gang-related murder."

Bermuda Blue: Parents and politicians face tough choices

Jeremy Deacon: As individuals we are constantly faced with making choices. As parents, we are faced with making choices that not only affect us, but our children also.

Bermuda Blue: Are we witnessing return of the UBP?

Jeremy Deacon: Now Michael Dunkley has taken over as Premier until the OBA party meets to decide who the next leader will be — and the odds are that it will be Mr Dunkley who has consistently polled well, better than Mr Cannonier.

Bermuda Blue: Normal growing pains of fatherhood?

Jeremy Deacon: Should I pursue my aim to have my son and me sitting on his bed, remotes in hand, guiding our trains and racing cars?

Bermuda Blue: In praise of the single parent

Jeremy Deacon: Every now and then my wife travels overseas for work. I really dread it — not just because I miss her but also because I suddenly become a single parent of two children.

Bermuda Blue: Community voices should not be lost

Jeremy Deacon: I have been out and about much more over the last six or seven months and I have heard so many stories from a big cross-section of people that are in danger of being lost.

Bermuda Blue: My pet hates, in no particular order...

Sun columnist Jeremy Deacon's pet hates include the words 'awesome' and 'my bad', packed lunches, his wife stealing his tools, and more in Friday's Sun.

Bermuda Blue: What have YOU achieved in the first quarter of 2014?

It was a simple enough question: With the first quarter of the year gone... What have you accomplished for yourself so far in 2014?

Bermuda Blue: Are your kids burnt out?

Jeremy Deacon: There is pressure like never before to succeed, to get the grades, but somehow involving children in too many activities seems like hot-housing.

Bermuda Blue: How about a job incubator for St David’s?

Jeremy Deacon: How about building a small business incubator on that derelict land at St David’s?

Bermuda Blue: Just imagine if the speed limit was higher...

Jeremy Deacon: Why is it that cars simply cannot stop at the white line? Why do they have to go three feet beyond and force oncoming cars to swerve into the road?

Bermuda Blue: Could our island be run by a mayor?

Jeremy Deacon: Could a Mayor of Bermuda work? With a population of around 65,000, is there a need for a Cabinet, a shadow Cabinet and a total of 36 MPs?

Bermuda Blue: Kids should play in the street

Jeremy Deacon: Wouldn't it be nice to see large numbers of children playing cricket in the summer evenings, using any old thing as stumps placed in the middle of the (safe) road?

Bermuda Blue: I’m feeling the bumps on my ride to work

Jeremy Deacon: I have finally taken the plunge and got on my pedal bike to cycle to work. It felt good. What did not feel good was riding on our roads - boy, what a mess.
