Doula Delight Suitcase Returned!
Freeport, Bahamas - Award presentation was made o 27th March 2012 at the weekly luncheon
meeting of the Rotary Club of Lucaya at the Ruby Swiss Restaurant.
At about 10:30pm on Tuesday 6th December 2011, Mrs Mary Delashmutt c/o
Doula Delight, had just completed a teaching assignment at the Lucayan
Presbyterian Kirk and was driving home, carrying her equipment valued at
several thousand dollars, inside a red suitcase on the back of her
As she turned onto East Sunrise Highway, unknown to her, the suitcase
slid off the truck onto the roadside. Several minutes later, another
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said yesterday that Free National Movement (FNM) Senator Dr. Duane Sands' premature announcement of the election date was a mere 'misunderstanding'.
"Sands had no means of knowing because I didn't tell him or anyone else and so it was a good guess," Ingraham told reporters during a luncheon at Atlantis he hosted for the CARIFTA track team, which placed second over the weekend in Bermuda.
"There was nothing wrong with what he did."
Dr. Sands revealed the date on a BlackBerry messenger blast Tuesday afternoon.
Asked if he was disappointed in Dr. Sands, Ingraham said, "not at all".
"In fact, I think it's a misunderstanding," he said. "Duane Sands heard a story on Love 97 at one o' clock and on the basis of that he [messaged] his various people and said elections will be on May 7."
Speaking to the matter on Tuesday, National Security Minister Tommy Turnquest said Dr. Sands should not have sent the message.
"I got that message and I called him right away," Turnquest said. "He indicated to me that he heard it on Jones' network and he repeated it, which he should not have done because [it's] something only the prime minister should have authority to do."
Turnquest spoke in Rawson Square moments after Parliament was dissolved.
The prime minister officially revealed the date in a national address on Tuesday night.

DISGRUNTLED workers at Bahamas Information Services are calling on Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham to remove the company's executive director
amid claims of nepotism, victimisation and poor management.
Around eight workers protested for a portion of their lunch hour outside
BIS' office on Bay Street shortly after 1pm on Thursday, decrying the
management style of BIS Executive Director Edward Ellis.
The group claimed their sentiments are shared by the 35 to 40 persons
employed at the government-run media agency.
Speaking for the group, Bahamas Public Service Union President John
Pinder said employees have low morale due to ...
Sandra Mae Cooper sat outside the charred remains of an apartment building in the Grove yesterday, holding a picture of her youngest grandchild.
"We called her Mimi," she said.
The five-month old, whose real name was Santia Cooper, died in a fire on Mother's Day.
Cooper said Sunday started off as a normal day for the family.
She said she woke up early and went to church for the Mother's Day service.
When she got back home, she made lunch for the family and played with the baby for a while.
"They carried Mimi upstairs and laid her on the bed," she said.
"When she falls asleep, we always put the fan right there to the room to keep her cool."
She said the baby's mother, Satanya, and a few other family members sat outside the building talking.
"So we were talking and somebody came and said 'I smell smoke'," she said.
"So everybody started running up the stairs at the same time and then a guy came from the back of the building saying 'Sandra, Sandra, smoke coming out from the bedroom'.
"Well after that the mother dashed to the apartment.
"When she reached to the door, the smoke and the fire met her to the door.
"So I said 'let me give it a try' and the same thing that happened to her, the smoke and the flame, met me to the door.
"Everybody who was trying, that was the problem.
"After [Satanya] saw that, she ran down the stairs straight across the road crying."
Superintendent Walter Evans, director of fire services, said the baby's uncle made a heroic and courageous attempt to save Santia's life, but was unable to, and ended up injuring his right arm.
Phenton Cooper, another of the baby's uncles who also tried to save her, said he was devastated by the loss.
"I ran through the fire and tried to run into the other room to get her, but the fire kept burning me in my face," he said.
"I was bareback too and I wasn't getting burned about my body, just my face.
"I tried three or four times to get to the baby, but just couldn't.
"That had me stunned. I never expected to see anything like that."
The Department of Social Services is paying for the family to stay at the Colony Club hotel for a month.
Police have yet to determine the cause of the blaze.
The child's relatives said they lost everything in the fire and are asking anyone with a kind heart to donate what they can to help them move on.
They can be reached at 451-7595, 565-0207 and 467-9426.
The government intends to introduce a junior athlete program to develop future Olympians, Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham revealed yesterday.
His announcement comes on the heels of one of the best CARIFTA performances in Bahamian history.
"As a part of this effort we will create new community sports facilities in New Providence and the Family Islands, and rebuild a number of high school gymnasiums," Ingraham said as he hosted a luncheon at Virgil's for the CARIFTA team which placed second in Bermuda over the weekend.
"As our athletes mature, it is essential that we continue to support them and give them the opportunity to shine at home and abroad."
The CARIFTA team returned home on Tuesday night with 40 medals -- 14 gold, 14 silver and 12 bronze -- to finish second behind Jamaica which ended the 41st annual track and field championships with 78 total medals -- 34 gold, 25 silver and 19 bronze.
This is the most medals The Bahamas has won in nearly 30 years.
"Today we are yet again celebrating the pride and joy that is bestowed upon The Bahamas when our athletes carry our flag to international competitions. It continues to be the privilege of my government to have increased funding to support our athletes in such competitions," Ingraham continued.
"In 2013 The Bahamas will host the CARIFTA games in our new national stadium. Tomorrow, the CARIFTA swimming competition begins at the Betty Kelly-Kenning aquatic center. I know that Bahamians everywhere will be cheering on our swimmers whether at the sports center or around their televisions."
Ingraham encouraged the young athletes to work even harder as the Olympics approaches.
"We have truly arrived at a new day in athletics in The Bahamas. But like our athletes, let us not rest on past success. There is much work to be done. For all of our athletic and sporting success, the world ain't seen nothing yet from Team Bahamas."
Ingraham said the team's success is an "extraordinary accomplishment". He added that it confirms that while The Bahamas is a small country, its achievements are not limited by the size of the population.
While congratulating the team, Ingraham pointed to a story in The Jamaica Gleaner which quoted Jamaica's head coach Michael Vassell saying "We were outrun by The Bahamas... We won only two of the 12 sprint medals that were on offer and we collected minor medals in the rest."
"Imagine that. Today, Jamaica is saying that they were outrun by The Bahamas. They better get used to it," Ingraham added.
The Bahamas team won half of the sprint medals.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham declared yesterday that the Free National Movement (FNM) is ready to go to the polls and "kick some butt".
Ingraham said the party's Red Splash event which was attended by thousands of supporters on Easter Monday is an indication of things to come.
"We called for the people," he said during a luncheon he hosted at Atlantis for the Carifta team which placed second in Bermuda over the weekend.
"Our people are energized and enthusiastic and they are ready to vote. They are confident that they are going to win the election. They need to work and continue to work at it.
"If other people have difficulty with the enthusiasm of their crowd, that's their business... mine is organized and ready to go, focused and ready to kick some butts."
As for whether the party will elect a new deputy leader going into the election, Ingraham said he can stand on his own.
"I have an election to win. The party has a leader," he said.
"A leader who wins the government can make any member the deputy prime minister and the party can elect whoever it wants as a deputy leader. They don't have to do the same thing. The deputy prime minister is not a constitutional position.
"The current deputy leader will demit office in June when we hold our convention. At that time the party will elect a new deputy leader. It's a very routine, simple thing. I don't need like others to have a deputy to carry me.
"I stand on my own two feet. I'm my own man. I lead my own party."
Ingraham revealed during a national address on Tuesday night that election will be held on May 7.
The FNM and Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) are now kicking their campaigns into high gear.
Both parties are expected to hold several mass rallies in the coming weeks. Ingraham acknowledged that the PLP may have a slight advantage in that respect.
"We don't have as much money as the PLP, but we have adequate numbers of paraphernalia. We don't have as much money as they do. They have lots more money than we do," he said when asked about campaign finances.
Nonetheless, he said, "We are a very organized grouping. We operate on time and plan events. We don't just wake up one morning and say we are going to have a splash. We determine what we are going to do. We plan it, we organize it and we succeed."
Sherlyn Hall, deputy permanent secretary at the Parliamentary Registration Department, confirmed on Tuesday that 172,085 Bahamians registered to vote, 22,000 more than in the 2007 general election.
Responding to the group of Bahamians who expressed outrage over voter registration coming to an end, Ingraham said he has little sympathy for them.
"How many times did the prime minister call upon people to register to vote? There has never been a longer or more organized process in the history of The Bahamas," he said.
Ingraham added: "For some people you are never going to be on time for them. So no, I am not concerned about that at all. Everyone had more than ample opportunity to register"
Ingraham compared the current situation to 2007, saying, "It was a disorganized event (in 2007). Lots of people didn't register.
"So pay no attention to that. Tardiness is not something I have great sympathy for."

BIMINI, Bahamas -- Combine excited first graders, accompanied by just as eager parents, along with the planning and expertise of Bahamas Educational Tours (BET) and the end result is a fun-filled one-day excursion to a Bahamian gem, Bimini.
Just over 50 persons, with an equal mixture of kids and adults, recently traveled as part of Bishop Michael Eldon School's (BMES) first grade school trip to North & South Bimini. According to BET Tour Coordinator, Michele Coburn, visits to other Bahamian islands are regular features of BMES' school curriculum and tour coordination is a service she has rendered to the institution for a number of years. "Their teachers actively believe in bringing lessons to life through guided tours that allow their students to gain hands-on knowledge and experience, and it's a pleasure for BET to put such trips in motion for them," she said.
Highlights of the day trip included visits to the Fountain of Youth; guided nature trail; ferry boat rides; Bimini Bay resort; Bimini's last boat builder; museum; straw market; open-air tram ride; and a sumptuous native lunch.
