The original Golden Girls of The Bahamas started something really good.
Pauline Davis, Chandra Sturrup, Eldece Clarke, Savetheda Fynes and Debbie Ferguson put together an international run in the sprint relay from 1996 to 2002 that will live on throughout time.
Olympic gold and silver medals, a world championship and a Commonwealth gold highlighted a period of dominance for the Bahamian speed ladies few other nations can compare with. (Timicka Clarke joined Sturrup, Ferguson and Fynes for the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games triumph following the retirement of Davis and Eldece Clarke).
Sturrup and Ferguson are still in the mix but supporters in this country and around the world know that in a few ye ...
My mother's favourite cousin is someone she calls, "the most conceited person she ever knew." He was a larger than life man who practised regularly what he called his "killer smile."
Legend has it he would stand in front of the mirror and practise his swagger. He would stroke his chin and tune up his smile, the one that would "kill the ladies."
This little bit of family history is relevant only in as much as I am reminded of my cousin sometimes when people speak about Branville McCartney, member of parliament for Bamboo Town. Last year he resigned from the high profile job of Minister of State f ...
Grand Bahama FNM candidate Peter Turnquest views IB student art exhibit at Lucaya International School
FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Grand Bahama FNM Candidate Peter Turnquest, visited Lucaya International School to view the International Baccalaureate (IB) student Art exhibition for 2012. The International Baccalaureate is a demanding and highly respected pre-college Diploma Programme. Students who choose to take the Art course must do a two year study which requires them to create a minimum of 12 pieces of studio work and a workbook reflecting a commitment to personal media experimentation, cultural and historical research, critical analysis and an ongoing investigation of a personal theme.
The students then host an exhibition, which acts as a concluding IB Art examination. The six young ladies exhibiting this year showcased work in photography, print, modelling, paintings, origami and many other mediums. The exhibition is open during school hours and "is a preface for the IB invigulaitor who is sent to examine the students work," said Julie Hoyle, LIS Art Teacher.
"I have to say I was genuinely impressed with the work," said Turnquest. "Each student took the time to explain the reason behind their choice of pieces and themes. They were so confident in their explanations and the calibre of their work was of such a high standard, you forgot they were high school students." The artists' work will stay on display for the remainder of the week as they prepare for the final examinations for the rest of the IB program.

sisters of Seabreeze constituency, ladies and gentlemen, good evening. The Lord
Himself delivered the people of Israel from the cruel grips of the Egyptians.

Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen:
We the people of New Providence are greatly disappointed in your cold-hearted inability to restore our roads to favourable conditions after you would have installed your business underground.
It's criminal for example, to see and feel your uncaring actions on Windsor Field and the Western roads. There are about eight open trenches just on those two thoroughfares. A few of them are dangerous to public travel, and there is no notice for motorists before approa ...

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- The Miss Grand Bahama Beauty Pageant Organization is set to present their 2012 Miss Grand Bahama contestants during an unveiling on April 6, 2012 at 8pm under the theme Mystical Wonders of Grand Bahama. The event will once again take place at Sabor Restaurant and Bar at the Pelican Bay Hotel at Lucaya.

The Miss Grand Bahama Beauty Pageant Organization is pleased and excited to present the beautiful and intelligent young contestants to Grand Bahama and The Bahamas. The young women were selected through a screening process held earlier this year, and were chosen for their intelligence, effective communication skills, appearance, attitude, motivation, team spirit, maturity and confidence. The young ladies had to go through extensive training and workshops in etiquette, make-up, health and fitness, public speaking, presentation and runway technique.
Who will be the next Miss Grand Bahama in 2012 and represent her country on the world stage? Miss Stuart had the opportunity to represent with grace, style, poise, beauty and maturity at the Miss Coffee International Beauty Pageant in Colombia.
Ladies and gentlemen, office etiquette is dead!
It has been brutally assassinated by uncouth employees, who remain at large and continue to practice their uncultured behavior in the office. Why have they not been arrested? According to reliable sources several theories have been presented:
1. Many civility police (managers) lack business etiquette training and therefore are unable to identify and correct simple etiquette faux pas.
2. Organizations have hired so many uncouth employees that policing has become virtually impossible.
3. Many civility police (managers) are also uncouth, so they see nothing wrong when employees' social graces are less than desirable.
4. Many civility police are afraid to have the tough conversations required to address the inappropriate behavior.
In light of the above I am appealing to all employees who are concerned about the deteriorating state of common civility in the workplace, to stand with me in exposing these uncouth perpetrators. I hereby deputize you and order you to arrest on sight any co-worker who you witness engaged in one of the following acts:
1. Misusing the speakerphone: Speakerphones are used primarily for group conference calls, not because you are too lazy to pick up the handset. If you intend to put someone on a speakerphone, make your intent known and identify any other person who may be in the room with you. For example, "Bob I have you on the speaker and I've got Tom and Jerry here with me".
2. Engaging in loud conversations: If a colleague is engaged in a conversation with another individual and you can hear them down the hall, this is a clear indication that they need to turn down the volume.
3. Eating smelly foods at his/her desk: Not only does it look bad, certain foods like fish, onions, curry, Chinese food etc. have high aromas that can leave the entire office smelling bad! What can I tell you, eat in the kitchen and if your office doesn't have a kitchen choose your food selections wisely! On the same note please refrain from throwing smelly foods in the garbage at your desk, take them to the kitchen garbage please.
4. Not cleaning up after themselves: What's wrong with you people? Does you mother work here? Did your bring your housekeeper or private butler with you to work? Is something wrong with your hands? Why can't you clean up after yourself? Why do you believe that someone should throw away your discarded lunch, cups or beverages? Does your kitchen at work come with a waitress? If you sprinkle when you tinkle will it kill you to wipe the seat? Why can't you flush the toilet after yourself? Is it beneath you to ensure that the toilet is clean for other people to use? OMG, uncivilized!
5. Constantly talking on his or her personal cellphone: And not just talking, talking loudly since most peoples' cell phone voice is considerably louder than their regular voice. Then you have the nerve to wonder who is spreading your person business and supposedly confidential information around the office. Newsflash, you are, and don't expect people not to listen!
6. Grooming in public: This includes brushing and combing hair, applying makeup at your desk, and zipping down your trousers to put shirt in pants. Please find the restroom.
7. Not sending a proper email: When are you going to "get it"? An email is nothing more than an electronic letter. As such it should contain a subject, greeting and salutation. It also wouldn't hurt if you remember to use spell check and proof your messages for grammatical errors before hitting send. Note to self, never respond to an email when you are angry. Trust me, you will regret it! And please do not forward chain mails.
8. Not saying "good morning", "please" or "thank you": We were taught basic manners as a child (well at least I was) so in my mind there is just no excuse for lack of good manners. Get it in your head, "please" and "thank you" will always be the magic words we were taught as children, some of you just need to remember to use them.
9. Playing music/the radio at your desk: This is soooooo annoying! Why do you believe that your colleagues want to listen to your favorite radio station, CD, sermon, or ITunes library (you get the picture)? Further, if the company wanted you to listen to music, it would install a sound system! If you must listen to any of the above please use headphones.
10. Voicemails: A voicemail system allows people to leave messages for you when you are unavailable, but how can they leave a message if:
a. You don't activate your voicemail/mailbox.
b. Your mailbox is full and unable to receive any more messages.
Listen people, clear your messages and return your calls same day if possible, if not before end of next day.

It is this diversity that makes me say that Grand Bahama’s economic picture is spotty. While areas of the industrial sector, which rely primarily on clients outside of The Bahamas, are holding their own, despite the significant aftershocks of the recent global economic and financial crisis, the tourism and construction sectors continue to underperform. Tourism, however, has yet another spotty picture, since the cruise business has seen meaningful increases while gains in the stopover business remain marginal, if not flat.

THE Women's Suffrage Movement was highlighted during a four-day symposium held at the College of the Bahamas last week.
As this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Women's Suffrage Movement, the College of the Bahamas teamed up with the Bureau of Women's affairs commemorating the "Past, Reflecting on the Present, Envisioning the Future: 1962 and Beyond".
The symposium commenced on March 6 with high school students making up most of the audience on the opening day.

The Sandals Foundation donated 10 computers to two deserving charities, the Bahamas AIDS Foundation and the PACE Program.
Making the presentation recently to the two organizations on behalf of the Sandals Foundation were team members from Sandals Royal Bahamian along with the property's General Manager, Patrick Drake.
The Sandals Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts. The Foundation funds educational, community and environmental projects throughout the Caribbean.
"We are very happy to make this contribution to these two vital organizations in our community," Drake said. "The work of the Bahamas AIDS Foundation and the PACE program ensures that some of the most vulnerable members of our population are given a fighting chance at life."
The PACE program provides education and support to teen mothers and promotes awareness and policies that reduce both teen pregnancy and unplanned pregnancy among young adults.
Jacqueline Knowles, program coordinator at PACE said that the Sandals Foundation's donation will ensure that the young ladies are given opportunities to make positive contributions to society.
"These donations will assist our students in learning technological skills that will allow them to function effectively in society," Knowles said. "Your organization's generosity is greatly appreciated."
The Bahamas AIDS Foundation is a non-profit, non-government organization dedicated to the fight against HIV/AIDS in the community. Their vision is to provide education and awareness, to assist in the prevention, treatment and cure, and to provide support for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Bahamas AIDS Foundation board member Dr. Vaughan Conliffe said that the Foundation's donation was greatly appreciated:
"We are grateful for the generosity of cooperate sponsors like the Sandals Foundation who support our work in The Bahamas."
