Statoil's team lends gives a special gift to the G.B. Children's Home

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- In keeping with its commitment to give back to the community, Statoil South Riding Point, which has been operating in Eastern Grand Bahama for 40 years, reached out once again to the GB Children's Home with a special donation from the staff.
Staff members from Statoil South Riding Point took the call to give back to the community personally and came up with a special donation of a 42" flat screen TV with built-in DVD player - providing for wonderful entertainment for years to come for the children. "At Statoil South Riding Point, we believe in giving back to our community and we wanted to give the children something special that they could use and really enjoy," explained Mr. Michael Regis, (Warehouse Assistant for Procurement and Logistics), who presented the Home with the gift along with Mr. Julian Fox (Welder, Statoil's Maintenance & Modification Department) and Mr. Bartholomew Mitchell (Coordinator SSU for Statoil's Safety & Security Unit). All three men are also instructors for the Smith System Driver Improvement Course for Statoil South Riding Point Employees.
The 42" flat screen TV/DVD combination will provide for wholesome entertainment and educational opportunities for the children who have already made good use of the donation. "We really wish to thank Statoil, its management and employees who have supported us in many ways," said Mrs. Geneva Rutherford, GB Children's Home Executive Committee. "This is such a special donation for the children - knowing that it is something they will be enjoying... watching movies, educational programmes and DVDs. We are very grateful that this group of exceptionally trained professionals from Statoil considered us and gave such a thoughtful gift for the children to enjoy for a long time to come," she added.

Scurvy Few Motorcycle Club raise funds for the Beacon School

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- The Scurvy Few Motor Bike Club members love to get on their bikes and go for long casual rides during the weekends.
The members are not hell raisers, but rather consist of big hearted members of the community who are business persons, serious about riding, road safety and are passionate about helping others.  They are no strangers to reaching out and making things better for others.
Vicky Martel of Santa's Helpers can attest to this, as some of the Club's members have become 'the reindeers on wheels' as they roar into various communities to meet the kids and distribute thousands of gifts provided by generous donators.
The Club Members saw a need at the Beacon School who continue to champion the cause for special education and provide training for our challenged youth.  Determined to find a way to assist, they planned a Bike Night at Red Beard's Restaurant, whereby an entrance fee was charged to patrons entering the establishment.

Students told time is a gift and not to waste it

Thousands of school children were urged to not waste time last year, by gospel recording artist Ricardo Clarke, who will once again embark on his "Wasting No Time" school campaign. During the school visits Clarke, engaged in mentoring sessions, workshops and hosted concerts as he did what he could to translate the message he wanted to in a way that the children could understand and would accept.
Clarke's school visits are motivational in nature, speaking to students about the value of a good education, cultivating a healthy network of friends and how their school years are important to the overall direction of their life.
"We will be able to use the students' love for us and our songs to hopefully direct them to a productive lifestyle," says Clarke.  "It is safe to say that all schools encourage their students to avoid time-wasting habits and aspire to be great academically, it is my aim to reinforce that, and partner with schools nationally in whatever way I can to achieve this result."
Clarke says the campaign was an overwhelming success last year and reached 15,000 students in 50-plus schools in New Providence, Grand Bahama, Abaco, Central and North Eleuthera, Harbour Island, Spanish Wells, Central and North Andros and San Salvador.  He encouraged students to never settle for anything but the best in academics, and reinforced the importance of using their time wisely in school.
Initially, this was done without very little financial help, however, the passion to connect with the youth and inspire them to greatness kept Clarke and his team on their journey.
With over 200-plus schools and 50,000 students it was Clarke and his team's desire to visit every island, and every school, to remind students that time is a gift and to use it wisely.

U.S. gift to further ensure RBDF's 'competitive advantage'

NASSAU, The Bahamas --- The "generous and gracious gift" of a 25ft Full Cabin Response Boat and ancillary package from the United States of America will serve to strengthen the Royal Bahamas Defence Force's capabilities in the areas of maritime domain awareness and counter transnational criminal operations, Minister of National Security, Dr. Bernard J. Nottage said Thursday.
Dr. Nottage said the donation will further ensure the Defence Force's "competitive advantage" in that war, and fits in well with the Government of The Bahamas' strategy of protecting the country's national security and maritime and other assets by ensuring "safe borders" through the decentralisation of the Defence Force's operations via the establishment and deployment of patrol craft at strategic locations throughout the Commonwealth.
"It is critical to note that the Response boat will operate primarily within Nassau's Harbour, supplementing the Defence Force's existing Harbour Patrol vessels and ensuring the safety of thousands of visitors and the economic viability of The Bahamas' tourism product," Dr. Nottage said.
The donation of the SAFE Response (Secure All-Around Flotation Equipped) Boat along with a two-year supply of spare parts and a two-week training course for RBPF marine personnel, took place on Thursday (January 9) at the RBDF's Harbour Patrol Unit, East Bay Street, and was made possible through the United States Embassy's Office of Defence Cooperation (ODC) and the United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM).
