Bahamas PM Presents Budget Communication 2015-2016 (Pdf attachment) - May 29, 2015 - 12:25:21 PM

scaled.PM_PRESENTS_BUDGET_2015-16.jpg
Mr. Speaker, this Budget is faithful to the reform plan for a stronger Bahamas that my Government has been pursuing since our present mandate began. Our plan is working. This Budget builds further on that plan.

We have, for instance, succeeded in achieving a dramatic turnaround in the state of our public finances. The GFS Deficit this fiscal year is now estimated at $198 million, as compared to the $539 million Deficit that resulted from the fiscal structure that we inherited in 2012/13. That is a reduction in the Deficit of $342 million...

On The Bahamas' participation at the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee - May 29, 2015 - 11:19:36 AM

Dear Editor,


All Bahamians should be exceedingly proud of the performance of Charles Hamilton Jr. in the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee. Although he was not among the 49 spellers who advanced to the semi-finals, he spelt both of his onstage words correctly, UMLAUT in Round 2 and WENSLEYDALE in Round 3, but in the vocabulary test he gave the wrong answer for the meaning of the word DESUETUDE and obviously, when his performance in the First Round written test was evaluated, it was not strong enough for him to be included in the 49 semi-finalists.

Grand Bahama Birding Group following Spring Migration - May 29, 2015 - 11:10:31 AM


Birding-sm.jpg
The May fieldtrip of sixteen birders from the Grand Bahama Birding Group led by Erika Gates, resulted in 34 species and mixed emotions about several of the birds observed during their trip to the eastern part of Grand Bahama.

Their first stop at the Pelican Point settlement evoked excitement as many in the group had not seen the striking male Bobolinks which travel in flocks from their wintering grounds in the Argentinian grasslands and grain fields to the Northern U.S. and Canada to raise their families. They only linger a few days on Grand Bahama, passing through to rest and feed on seeds and berries, their favourite food easily crunched up with their conical bills. The birders were able to observe a mixed flock of 35 males and females.

Another happy sight was the circling of endemic Bahama Swallows over Pelican Point...

CCE, "Mixed signals undermining integrity of Government’s Commitment to Equality" - May 29, 2015 - 4:17:10 AM

equality-s.jpg
Nassau, New Providence - As violence against women continues to escalate in the Bahamas, Citizens for Constitutional Equality (CCE) call on the government to make a decision on the pending Constitutional Referendum, and remove all uncertainty over the Country’s position on constitutional equality and nondiscrimination against men and women on the basis of sex. Both the call of history and the demands of justice require an end to this discrimination, and for the granting of access to the full fruits of freedom and equality for all.

The Government’s mixed signals are creating confusion and distrust, showing disregard for the thousands of Bahamians who stand ready to vote in support of equality, not to mention the Bahamians whose lives hang in the balance, questioning whether their hope for change is false...
