Barry Parker, Resident Orchid Lover

Freeport, Grand
Bahama, The Bahamas - Orchids (a.k.a. Orchidaceae) can be found in
almost every habitat on Earth, and at least 400 orchid plants can be
found in Barry Parker's garden in Lucaya.

Hooked from the time he coaxed a bloom from his Cattleya orchid in the
mid-1980's, Barry has since used all of his spare time cultivating his
orchid collection.  He has bought some of his orchids from local
nurseries, others have been given to him (temporarily) as rescue
projects, and he has rescued native Bahamian orchids from certain doom
at construction sites.  More than 25 years later, Barry is retired and
can devote all of his time to his precious blooms...

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

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 ...

Rolling blackouts continue

A summer of record heat has led to extreme challenges for the Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) which once again shut down power to thousands of residences and businesses yesterday, as the demand for electricity simply could not be met.BEC blamed yesterday's rolling blackouts - the latest in a series of load shedding exercises - on another failed generator.  This was the third generator to go offline this week.The generator has not been properly maintained due to the corporation's strained financial situation, said BEC in a statement. The corporation staggered yesterday's blackouts in two-hour intervals, impacting different areas of New Providence.BEC said between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. it would shut down power to customers in Lyford Cay, Old Fort Bay, Lyford Hills, Charlottesville, Jacaranda, Blake Road, Sea Beach, Caves Village, Sandyport and Soldier Road between Abundant Life Road and Balliou Hill Road.BEC expected to cut electricity supply to customers in Tyler Street, Nassau Street, West Bay Street (between Xavier's Primary School and Vista Marina), Augusta Street, Deans Lane, Meeting Street, Balliou Hill Road South, College Drive, Boyd Road and all side streets between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.BEC expected that between 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. it would shut down supply to customers in Westward Villas, the Cable Beach strip, Lake Cunningham subdivision, Skyline Drive, Sanford Drive, Stapledon Gardens, Sea View Drive, West Bay Street, and John F. Kennedy Drive.Between 10:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. customers in Bamboo Boulevard, Pinewood Gardens, and South Beach were expected to have no electricity."Once again, the corporation apologizes to its customers and will continue to provide updates on the status of its generation challenges," BEC said in its statement.There have been rolling blackouts in New Providence since Monday when two of BEC's generators at its Clifton Pier plant failed.
One of those generators has since been brought back online.  BEC said it has identified the problem with the second generator.
"The need for parts and extensive repairs means that the generator may be out of service for several days," said BEC.The corporation said the third failed generator is expected back online today.  That generator is also located at the Clifton Pier plant.
"During this time, the corporation will continue to utilize the Generation Assistance Plan (GAP), relying on customers with large capacity standby units [capable of producing more than 1,000 kilowatts] freeing up capacity for other customers," BEC said.  "Additionally, BEC is preparing to install the 20 megawatts of rental units.  These units are expected to be operable by mid-month."BEC said with the GAP and the installation of the rental units, it would be able to limit the impact of any future generation problem on its customers.

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.

US Embassy marks the 10th anniversary of September 11th with two community service projects

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Ten years ago on September 11, nearly 3,000 people from more than 90 nations perished in a terrorist attack targeting the United States.  U.S. President Obama took inspiration from the victims and survivors of this tragic event by establishing September 11 as a National Day of Service.  Last year, 11.5 million people -- including the president and First Lady Michelle Obama -- participated in the day of service, helping charitable organizations and community groups throughout the United States.   
In response to U.S. President Barack Obama's call to service, U.S. Embassy Nassau marked the anniversary of September 11th with two community service projects on New Providence.  On the morning of September 9th, The U.S. Embassy's Chargè d'affaires, Mr. John Dinkelman, visited the G.K. Symonette Library to donate a collection of over 400 new Scholastic books for young readers as well as bookshelves, a rug, brightly colored pillows and a large nursery rhyme mural to brighten up the children's corner.  
The donation was a way for the U.S. Embassy to give back to the community of Yellow Elder Gardens by creating a bright, vibrant space where children can explore the world through reading.  On hand for the donation were second graders from C.W. Sawyer Primary School and Ms. Dorcas Bower from the Ministry of Education.
