Gratitude For My Bahamian Homeland - Jul 30, 2015 - 11:53:28 AM


S0B-House.jpg
I’m not as sentimental as I should be. I take the fact that I live in one of the most beautiful countries for granted, I often assume that I will always have the peace of the ocean crashing against the shore and the annoyance that comes with seagulls begging for food.

But in moments when I remember just how lucky I am, I smile. When I think about the reefs surrounding the white beaches of Peterson’s Cay, The wild parrots that fly freely throughout the Abaconian islands or the iguanas that demand the attention of the wildlife surrounding them. I realize, that this place that I call home, is my peace.

Opinion: "When spending $6 million more than collected is not a loss" - Jul 30, 2015 - 9:36:31 AM

Political doublespeak at it's finest


The long awaited Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival report on the financial success of the event has been put on the table and expenditures came in almost $4 million over the budgeted $9 million at $12.9 million. Income was reported at $6.7 million. A loss of an astounding $6.2 million.

Of course now that these unfavourable results are in we're told this "should not be analyzed as a "profit and loss" exercise" and we should even call other carnival events around the world to see how much they make as if that's relevant...

Roberts: Baha Mar payroll letter smacks of mischief making - Jul 29, 2015 - 10:40:37 PM

Nassau, Bahamas -  Statement by Bradley B. Roberts, National Chairman Progressive Liberal Party:

Whether the letter addressed to Baha Mar staff was written out of ignorance or contrived, it is dishonest, it smacks of mischief making and is condemned in the strongest terms; this untruth must be immediately withdrawn.

In a letter attributed to one Magdalena Hamya, purporting to be Baha Mar’s VP of HR and Organizational Development, the writer misled Baha Mar employees that the government committed to paying foreign employees only to renege. This claim is at variance with the truth as the government’s pronouncements are a matter of public record

Impending Resurgence of Bain & Grants Town as a Cultural & Heritage Centre - Jul 29, 2015 - 12:36:14 PM

sm-Photo-1_1.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - Twenty-seven minutes, that’s about the time it takes to fly from Nassau to Congo Town (Andros), or to complete a lap around the “new” Cable Beach Strip.  It is also the time it takes for a leisurely stroll from Brougham Street to Meeting Street, one of the oldest, most historically rich, but underexposed, communities in the country. 

Many Bahamians can trace their ancestry to the village of Bain & Grants Town.    The ‘navel string’ of individuals throughout The Bahamas can be found in this community and the homesteads of many well-known families still stand prominently in the area.  Today Bain & Grants Town, the heart of old Nassau, is used mostly as a short cut by Bahamians dashing through the area, never stopping to appreciate all that this forgotten gem has to offer...
