Hello again my Bahamian citizens, another year has gone by, and it
baffles me that there is still not one word being said in any quarters
about our thirty million, plus, dollars ($30,000,000+) that was spent,
wasted or pocketed on the so-called Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival.
am still waiting on the forensic report to be tabled in the House Of
Assembly concerning their fiasco of a ‘carnival’ for the past three
years of 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Pam Burnside shocked by appointment of new Minister of Youth, Sports & Culture

The Power of Art - I was totally shocked by the recent appointment of the
new Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture! Having smiled with relief
when Minister Pintard was appointed, confident that his Ministry would
benefit from his firsthand knowledge and appreciation for art and
culture, I must now disappointedly admit that the machination of
‘politricks’ leave me speechless!
I have no knowledge whatsoever
about the newly appointed Minister’s cultural or artistic attributes and
can but live in hope for a positive future in this regard, but having
read comments stating that a Minister need not be proficient in any
particular area in order to perform effectively at his or her job, I beg
to differ. This country has been saddled with a litany of Cabinet
Ministers with mostly legal backgrounds for the past several decades who
have exhibited little to no knowledge of, nor appreciation...
