Tribute
on the passing of Franklin “Count Bernadino” Ellis by Hon. Daniel Johnson:

Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture
I join the local cultural community and his many fans around the world in mourning the passing of Culture Warrior, Bahamian Icon and patriot and a giant of a man, the inimitable Franklin “Count Bernadino” Ellis. He had lived a full life at 92 years old.

A native of Norman’s Castle, Abaco Count Bernadino honed his musical skills in the night clubs of Nassau and Jamaica before his big break came in 1947 after relocating to New York. Working in a restaurant as a dishwasher, Count would entertain customers during his breaks, perform with other Caribbean musicians and even enrolled with them at the New York School of Music

Bahamas Attorney General on the passing of Senator Mizpah Tertullien - May 25, 2015 - 5:58:58 PM

Last week marked the passing of Senator Mizpah Tertullien, a great Bahamian woman - a visionary and trailblazer.

Senator Tertullien was infected and affected by the 1950s movement for Self Governance and Majority Rule, which eventually led to Independence. She was a well educated woman who chose to dedicate herself to public service and the transformation of The Bahamas. Her weekly newspaper columns “Psychologically Speaking” incited Bahamians to self-respect and self-love. It’s is amazing to me that in 2015 we are still wringing our hands about something that she and so many others more than 50 years ago saw as obvious – women and men are equal. In advancing the cause of equality, and demonstrating her usual courage of conviction, she ran as a female candidate.
