Government installs solar water heaters in Ardastra Gardens community

Nassau, The Bahamas - Solar photovoltaic
systems may become mandatory to The Bahamas' building code, as the Government
shepherds Bahamians through the impact of climate change and the rising
costs of global energy prices.  The National Energy Policy is designed
to guide Bahamians to reduce energy consumption, especially people living
in low-income homes.    

"This is a programme to encourage Bahamians
to begin to use some of the gifts that God has given us, some of our
natural resources, which is that of solar energy.  These solar water

Testing heirlooms

By Gardener Jack

DURING January of this year I was given more than a dozen varieties of heirloom tomato seeds. This was very exciting, of course, and I had to abandon my regular favourites (including other heirlooms) in order to try out the newcomers.

My vegetable gardens are too small to do justice to so many varieties and so I shared seeds with friends. I grew one or two of each myself, which is hardly the basis of any scientific judgment, but did come up with some really interesting results.

My favourite large pink heirloom tomatoes are Brandywine and Giant Pink Ruffled. I can now add German Pink.

The problem with large heirlooms is that fruit production is often small. One German Pink p ...

Murder charge reinstated

Prosecutors yesterday reinstated a murder charge against four men, a day after a magistrate discharged the case because of the repeated failure of witnesses to appear.
Seriozha McKenzie, 32, of London Avenue, Miller's Heights; Merritt Forbes, 27, of Chesnut Street, Pinewood Gardens; Kooban Barr, 27, of Lynden Pindling Estates; and Teddy Butler, 25, were arraigned before acting Magistrate Jeanine Weech-Gomez for the May 7, 2010 shooting death of 17-year-old Berkley Miller.
Magistrate Derence Rolle-Davis on Monday dismissed the case, which had been before his court for 15 months when civilian witnesses did not show up for the preliminary inquiry.
Prosecutors now plan to bypass the hearing in the magistrate's Court and send the case to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment.
All of the defendants were remanded to prison. However, Senior Justice Jon Isaacs approved $20,000 bail for McKenzie who was free during the hearing before the                magistrate.

Two charged with Nassau Village murder

Police have filed a murder charge against two suspects in the shooting death of Alexander Hepburn.
Carlos Colebrooke, 23, of Williams Street, Nassau Village, and Geovanny Lefleur, 20, of Hope Gardens, appeared before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez yesterday accused of the August 5 murder of Hepburn, who was also known as "Boy Blue".
Hepburn, 30, was drinking a beer in front of a bar on Alexandria Boulevard, Nassau Village when a gunman shot him in the head.
Colebrooke and Lefleur did not have to enter pleas to the murder charge.  Prosecutors plan to commit the case to the Supreme Court for trial on September 27.
Gomez said he would recommend that prison officials keep the men in the remand center after lawyer Geoffrey Farquharson raised concerns about their safety.
According to Farquharson, Hepburn has relatives in the maximum security unit of the prison who have made threats against the men.

Ministry of Public Works, police prepare for back-to-school traffic

When the new school year begins on Monday, traffic on New Providence is expected to increase dramatically as parents of school-aged children try to navigate through the ongoing New Providence Road Improvement Project.
To assist in easing the flow of traffic, the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) is expected to deploy as many as 130 officers to deal with possible congestion in the capital Monday morning.
In total, about five schools will be affected by ongoing road works: C.I. Gibson Senior High, St. Augustine's College (SAC), Doris Johnson Senior High, Faith Temple School and C.R. Walker High School.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Dennis Sturrup of the RBPF Traffic Division said police are most concerned about congestion at the intersection of Prince Charles Drive.
During a road works tour yesterday, environmental specialist in the Ministry of Public Works, Shenique Albury, said work on Prince Charles Drive is progressing steadily.
"The works in this area are well advanced," she said. "We have been able to pave since July, and we're working our way west along Prince Charles Drive. Every area has its own timeline, and what we're trying to get people to understand is that we're working in sections.
"The first section was between Pine Barren Road and the junction of Fox Hill Road. The second section is between Pine Barren and College Garden Road."
The ministry has designed routes intended to provide easy access to the schools.
Those traveling to C.I. Gibson are encouraged to use the Wulff Road round-about, and later Samana Drive, once its reopened in the near future.
Those traveling westbound to SAC should use Fox Hill Road via Springfield Road.
People traveling east should use Prince Charles Drive as usual, but note that only local access will be given.
Those going to Doris Johnson will be granted westbound access on Prince Charles Drive.
Those traveling east along Prince Charles Drive can take the detour through Beatrice Avenue to Fox Hill Road and then go back onto Prince Charles Drive.
Access to those trying to reach Faith Temple can reach the school heading west on Prince Charles Drive through Pine Barren Road.
For those headed to C.R. Walker, the recommended route is via Market Street at School Lane, or Blue Hill Road to Hay Street, then onto Market Street and School Lane.
In addition, works officials advise all pedestrians to heed warnings on work sites, and stay outside work zones as much as possible.
