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...

New Book by High-ranking Naval Officer Calls for Naming Bahamas Waters the Lucayan Sea - Jul 17, 2015 - 9:00:26 AM

sm-Captain-Tellis-Bethel.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - A high-ranking naval officer and author of several scholarly publications is calling for the majestic waters of The Bahamas and Turks & Caicos to be named the Lucayan Sea, declaring that the name not only pays fitting tribute to the islands’ original inhabitants but reflects the nature of Bahamians as a people of peace.

Captain Tellis A. Bethel, Acting Commodore of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, makes a strong and thorough argument for the naming of yet-anonymous waters in his new book, The Lucayan Sea, Birthplace of the Modern Americas (Outskirts Press.com). The book, available in hard copy and online for Kindle, takes the reader on a 90-page journey from the time the Lucayans welcomed Christopher Columbus to the New World to the continuing absence of a name for either the territorial waters extending up to 12 miles or the exclusive economic zone that extends up to 200 miles offshore...
