VICTIMS of the fire-ravaged Haitian village sought refuge in tents last night as efforts to feed, clothe and find temporary homes for them were started.

Late yesterday evening two large tents were erected when it was feared that women and young children would be forced to sleep on the ashes of their former homes.

Some 40 displaced families received hot food distributed from a church bus and donated by concerned charities and community members.

Devastated by the indiscriminate fire that consumed more than 100 wooden shanties on Boxing Day - homes estimated to house at least four people each - the overwhelming need is ...

Letter: Bahamas is witnessing confusion in high places

EDITOR, The Tribune.

As we leap into this brand new year, I am more than persuaded that The Bahamas and her people are witnesses to confusion in high places. There is apparent confusion within our political parties, both minor and major. There is apparent confusion within the ranks of the Royal Bahamas Police Force; customs; Immigration and the Defence Force. For a very long time, I submit, there has been apparent confusion within the midst of the collective church.

Dear Editor,
Having family and friends in The Bahamas, I read the article in The Freeport News – A church divided (December 28 issue). The letter points out his premonition of brother-against-brother and bishop-against-bishop in the church due to various hot-button issues on which people, including Catholics and nearly all Christian denominations have differing views.

Fred Mitchell MP Fox Hill on Majority Rule Day 2011

Nassau, Bahamas - Enclosed are remarks by

Fred
Mitchell MP Fox Hill.

Mr. Party Leader, members and guests, it is my honour to
have been asked to speak here this morning in substitute for Dame Marguerite
Pindling who has asked me to say how much she regrets not being able to join
you all here this morning.  She will be speaking at a panel discussion at
the Yamacraw Branch tomorrow evening on this subject.

This subject of majority rule and the coming to power of
the PLP has been my life's work. It is  a strange feeling today that I
have speaking about these events because I remember all too clearly sitting in
the Cabinet office in 1976 at the Churchill Building talking to Sir Lynden
Pindling about  Black Tuesday, an event which had always fascinated me in
my childhood...

Christian Council president urges non-partisan approach to national issues

Christian Council President Rev. Patrick Paul yesterday called on the government to work more closely with the opposition to address national concerns.
“We need to move above the partisan in politics,” said Paul, while delivering the sermon at the annual parliamentarians church service at the Salvation Army Citadel. “We are destroying ourselves as a country and we need to pull together and work together as one.”
Paul said too many of the decisions made by the government are done without consultation with the people. “Governments are to work on behalf of the people. Further, in a democracy, both the elected party and the opposition are to work together ...
