Prime Minister Christie's Funeral Tribute for the Late Edmund Spenser Moxey - Aug 1, 2014 - 2:28:45 PM

Sm-Moxey.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - The following are remarks made by the Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie, Prime Minister of the Commonwealth  of The Bahamas at
the funeral for Edmund Spenser Moxey held at
Parish Church of The Most Holy Trinity:

When I heard of the passing of Edmund Spenser Moxey last Monday morning, I immediately released a statement expressing sadness over the loss of a man who had not only etched his name in glory as a frontline soldier of the Peaceful Revolution but who had also been revered for decades as an authentic cultural icon of the modern Bahamas.

In that statement I expressed to Ed’s widow, Sylvia, and to his children and wider family my personal condolences and the sympathies of the entire nation. I renew those sentiments here this morning...

Commentary: Foreign Policy and The Bahamas Constitution Took Center Stage This Week - Aug 1, 2014 - 2:20:28 PM

On the Foreign Policy front, Turkey and Japan lobbied Bahamian support for a possible seat on the all powerful Security Council of the United Nations (UN) while the Bahamas began an early campaign for support for a seat on the International Maritime Organization Council (IMO). Further, bilateral agreements, trilateral talks, and constitutional reform presentations, debates and delayed debates around the emotive issues of citizenship and gender equality rounded out yet another eventful week in The Bahamas. Matters of public policy and the rule of law clearly reigned supreme (pardon the pun with the constitution being the Supreme Law and all).

Sometimes the best form of communication is silence - Aug 1, 2014 - 2:08:23 PM

In a recent session with a one-on-one client, we were talking about her compulsion to correct and straighten people out. She is a brilliant woman who is analytical by nature, reads a lot and thinks fast. She shared how annoyed she sometime gets when people make statements that are contrary to known facts, mispronounce or misuse words. So, she felt that her duty was to stop people and let them know the error in their statement. I could totally identify with her, because at one time I too suffered from the same impulses. I felt to rectify another’s errors was a wonderful service to offer.

My eyes were opened many years ago after reading Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People. He talks about allowing others to save face. He encourages us to stop and think before we offer our brilliance...

So sought after in fact, that he ripped the runway at Chicago’s exclusive Men’s Fashion Week, after receiving a personal invitation from organizers and designers.

It’s a whirlwind experience for Kerr, who hails from his nation’s second city of Freeport, Grand Bahama. After all, what is now a career started off with him simply posting a few photos of his new physique, a symbol of pride and testament of his new healthy fitness lifestyle.

Statement by Bahamas DPM Philip Brave Davis pertaining to the estate of the late Franz Kohlrautz - Jul 31, 2014 - 10:59:51 PM

brave_davis.jpg
Over the past few days there have been several inaccurate and misleading stories in the local newspapers and online regarding the Estate of the Late Franz Kohlrautz and my role as Executor of the Estate.  Generally I do not discuss my private affairs and those of my friends publicly, however, the gross distortions and aspersions being fueled by those who seek to make mischief cannot go unanswered.  I do not take attacks on my character and integrity lightly.

I am the Executor of the Estate of the Late Franz Kohlrautz who was a very close and dear friend. Kenia Baptista Mir married Mr. Kohlrautz, a man 51 years her senior, in 2009 very soon after he met her in Cuba during a brief social visit there.  Their short marriage was very tumultuous, filled with much concern about his young wife’s behaviour and actions and they had been estranged for a considerable period prior to the time of his death in 2011...
