On March 7, US city of Newark, New Jersey’s largest city signs a sister city relationship with United States of Kailasa.
In March 2023, Roatan Bilingual School (ESBIR) the oldest private educational institution on Roatan, celebrated its four decades of educating the island’s children and youth. The school traces its roots to the early 1980s when the island had no options for quality child education.
As Roatan grows in population, so does the number of people dying on the island each week. A few decades ago Roatan island funerals were a family affair where caskets were built at night during the wake and the dead were buried the following morning.
