An Open Letter to the Prime Minister - Jan 16, 2017 - 9:40:23 AM

Dear Mr. Prime Minister:

I am not often one to get into public political commentary or debate but my heart is heavy.  As someone who has watched your political career over the past 40 years, and witnessing where we are today I could not resist re-reading George Orwell’s novel “Animal Farm”.  In fact as I watch your actions and those of your most ardent supporters the words of Mr. Orwell in another forum seems to ring true, “Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.”

Your reaction and those of your goons and cronies to Mr. Alfred Sears and his offering for the leadership of the PLP is very off-putting and smacks of a serious abuse of power...

Bahamians celebrate Fifty years of Majority Rule


On Tuesday 10th January 2017, thousands of Bahamians marched in solidarity in a government sponsored march to commemorate 50 years of Majority Rule. The marchers literally traced the steps of giants such as Sir Lynden Pindling, Sir Milo Butler and Sir Cecil Wallace-Whitfield in the first march to celebrate this historic event.

The march commenced at Windsor Park at 7am, travelled north on East Street...

Annual Grand Bahama Birdcount involves visiting and local birders - Jan 13, 2017 - 12:36:08 PM

Birdcount-Species-S.jpg
For the past 16 years, Grand Bahama has participated in the so-called “Christmas Bird Count”, a census that began 116 years ago in the United States and now includes all the Canadian Provinces, the Caribbean, Bahamas, South America as well as several Pacific islands.

Last year’s count shattered records and resulted in 2408 counts where 71659 observers recorded over 66 million birds of 2403 species!

Screen Scene review of the animated comedy SING - Jan 13, 2017 - 9:04:06 AM

sing-S_.jpg
A theater impresario attempts to save his once-grand theater with a singing competition. As the event becomes more than he can handle, he must trust in the finalists from varying backgrounds to help him pull it off.

Buster Moon is a koala full of optimism who believes he can stop his theater from closing with a singing competition. Eddie Noodleman is a sheep who happens to be Buster’s best friend and business partner, but lacks the same belief in the future of the theater. Rosita is a pig who gave up her dreams of music to become a devoted wife and mother. Mike is a mouse working as a street performer who sees winning the competition as a way to stardom...

With thousands of lives in jeopardy it is up to two people to figure out the mystery behind the growing malfunctions on a spaceship decades away from its destination. It becomes a race against time as their ship teeters to the brink of collapse and an unsure future, if they succeed, as they can not return to hibernation.

Jeff Lloyd: Government Failure to Pay Reserve Teachers - Jan 2, 2017 - 12:39:48 PM

jeff-lloyd.jpg
It saddens me to learn that nearly 200 educators in our country have gone without pay for several months. Teachers form a necessary foundation in our youth that becomes the bedrock of our society.

Without the sacrifices of these men and women who left retirement to come back to a profession many have devoted their entire life to, many of our young people would be subject to impossible learning situations. How have we repaid them? We have shouted from the tops of our lungs that they simply do not matter. We have expressed to them that we care more about Christmas decorations, and explicit dance parties than we do about them...

Disappointment in Butler-Turner's Senate Appointments - Dec 23, 2016 - 4:50:48 PM

On December 11, 2016, Hon. Loretta Butler-Turner became the first woman to serve as Leader of the Opposition in Parliament in The Bahamas. This followed a petition by seven Free National Movement (FNM) Members of Parliament to the Governor General to replace Leader of the FNM Hon. Hubert Minnis with Mrs. Butler-Turner. The FNM’s four Senators — appointed by Minnis — resigned following the vote of no confidence, allowing Butler-Turner to appoint Senators to serve at her pleasure.

A Glimmer of Hope, Disappeared

Amidst the confusion and accusations of betrayal, a large (non-geographical) constituency supported this move, recognizing in it democracy at work...

Parenting Our Parents - Dec 22, 2016 - 11:54:16 PM


I moved back to Canada from the Bahamas in late summer 2011; and before winter 2012, I moved my mother in with me. She was not thrilled about living in the Vancouver area because she doesn't like the damp climate.

"I've raised seven children; been butchered up by the doctors after being in the hospital sixteen times," she likes to remind us, even though seven of those times were to deliver babies. "Vancouver weather just makes my bones ache."

But mom agreed to move in with me anyway, and we were living in a high rise on the 33rd floor. "The bird cage," she quickly dubbed it. She loved the views, the sunrises, but hated everything else about it. All that said, mom's health improved week by week, likely due to...

Solomon's Rule - Dec 10, 2016 - 2:25:28 PM


Dear Editor,

Excluding the Lord Jesus Christ, the biblical King Solomon is considered to be the wisest man who ever lived.

Solomon once faced the daunting task of determining which of two prostitutes was the true mother of a child that both claimed to be the mother of.

Solomon was able to determine the true mother by identifying the one who had genuine concern for the welfare of the child.

When he showcased his first collect at Berlin Fashion Week nearly ten years ago, Simon Barth realized he didn’t quite fit in with the minimalist aesthetic of the German fashion scene. The fact is Barth lives for creating intricate embroidered haute couture dresses and, in 2013, the German-born designer moved to Vienna, Austria where today he is handcrafting exquisite floor-length evening dresses for the women of the Viennese ball.

Steeped with aristocratic tradition and home to the most extravagant and romantic balls you will find anywhere in the world, Vienna is one of Europe’s oldest capital cities. During ball season, which begins each winter and runs until Ash Wednesday...
