Pam Burnside: Where is our spunk? - Oct 23, 2014 - 6:06:40 PM


Dear Editor,

I have just returned from an interesting lecture on ‘Our Right to Know’ at the College of The Bahamas, and was intrigued by a comment made by one of the panelists, Retired Justice Jeanne Thompson, who bemoaned the sense of apathy that exists amongst the students at that institution as well as the complacency that has pervaded the country on the whole. She was asking, quite rightly: where is our spunk?

As the foremost tertiary institution in the country, COB has a crucial role to play in molding the young minds of this country and shaping our future..

Little-Bahamian-cookbook.jpg
Back in 1989, local artist and art educator Sue Bennett-Williams was approached by the owner of Appletree Press in Dublin, Ireland to create illustrations for a small cookbook that would be introduced as a part of their series. At that time, Sue had been making a name for herself in the art community in The Bahamas by creating vibrant watercolors of all forms of tropical flora found throughout The Bahamas and when given the opportunity to work on this project with author Rosamund Roberts (nee Lambert), Sue jumped at the idea.

The first edition of ‘A Little Bahamian Cookbook’ hit the local market in 1990 and was available throughout The Bahamas for at least a decade. Then suddenly it became very scarce and eventually disappeared completely.

A Family Mission Statement - Oct 23, 2014 - 12:49:12 PM

Some time ago I attended a Family Enrichment Seminar in Nassau during the summer. The question was asked to write a mission statement for your life. I thought to myself that the presenter was just being hilarious. However, he was serious about his statement. He said it yet again; write for me a mission statement for your life. I then begin to ask myself the question what is my mission statement for my life? As I begin to answer this question, it was effortless for me to be myself, and understand that every life has a mission. Fulfilling our mission is the most essential in life.

A mission statement is formal, short, or written statement of the purpose of a company or organization. As I’m writing this article, I think about the Rand Memorial Hospital. As soon as you enter the doors, you would see a...

Ceramics_Show_-Trio__invite_SM.jpg
In recent years, Subrennah Gomez-Higgs, Janet Jennings and Jeanine Lampkin have been firing up their ceramic works and appetites for artistic expression under the tutelage of experienced ceramicist, Joann Behagg. Now, the three artists are sharing their works and passion for lifelong creative growth in a show entitled ‘Trio ‘.

The idea was Behagg’s. Having taught the three women together in her Saturday ceramic art lessons, Behagg believed each woman’s talents would complement the others in an exhibition.

“They seem to gel really well as a group while doing the classes,” explained Behagg. “I thought they were ready and had enough skills to have a show.”

The show is the first for Jennings and Lampkin and the second for Gomez-Higgs. The exhibition will be held at Doongalik Studios on Village Road and will feature fresh takes on decorative and functional staples like platters, vases, tea sets and candle holders...
