Roof wetting ceremony for Bahamas Agricultural Marine and Science Institute - Jul 23, 2014 - 1:52:33 PM

Sm-S1650004.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - President of Paradigm Construction Mr. Audley Hanna practiced an ancient tradition to celebrate the near completion of the Bahamas Agricultural Marine and Science Institute.  He conducted a roof wetting ceremony, which includes pitching a white flag on the building, to commemorate that the building is not in its final stages of construction.  

Mr. Hanna built the original building on the site some 40 years ago, and the fact that it is still standing today, he said, is a testament to his work ethic.  He was especially proud to be responsible for BAMSI's main dormitories, now nearing completion, which means that the institute is well on its way to opening and serving the Bahamian people.

Kirkland H. Bodie: Answer My Questions Please! - Jul 23, 2014 - 11:01:32 AM

Mr. Minister of Youth, Sports and other Countries’ Culture,

I have asked you several questions already and so far you have failed to answer any of them, yet you say you are being attacked because you are being asked to answer some questions from a citizen of this country. No sir, it is the people of The Bahamas who are being attacked and ripped off out of nine million dollars earmarked to be invested in another countries’ culture. At least you could have respected us enough to have put Junkanoo in the title of this Festival, and not hide it in the background. Are you ashamed of the nation’s number one cultural expression? Answer my questions please.
