A need for speed

Mechanics are making final checks under the hoods of more than 50 luxury cars that will be paraded through the streets of New Providence, when The Bahamas Speed Week once again takes over the capital in a few months.
With just 106 days left before the drivers rev up their engines to partake in the highly anticipated week, organizers have shifted into another gear preparing for the event that is expected to bring thousands of visitors to New Providence. The series of races and cultural events will be held between November 24 and December 2.
The revival of speed week has been a dream of Jimmie Lowe and David McLaughlin. Lowe is the association's president and McLaughlin an organizer. Both gentlemen were around in the 1950s and 1960s when the event was a big hit in the country. They have given of all their time and effort to ensure that the event, sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism, is a success.
"This year we have worked tirelessly to make this happen," said Lowe. "It has been a dream for about 30 years. This event originated back in the 1950s and 1960s and it was about tourism, putting heads on beds, bringing people in just after the Thanksgiving weekend and (filling) a lull we had between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That is why it is held the time of year it is held this year as well.
"When we started this out we had a five year plan. Our goal is to make this the biggest social must do event in The Bahamas going forward. Our view, going forward, is to some day do it again with golf carts for the kids here in The Bahamas, get them interested."
An 18,000 square foot tent was erected in the parking area at Arawak Cay last year, this time around the organizers are putting up a 26,000 square foot tent. This will accommodate the 60 cars that will compete in the week-long event. So far, more than 30 drivers have confirmed their participation. The route has also been extended making it accessible to all, especially viewers and patrons of Fish Fry.
The event has attracted drivers from the local and international arenas. According to Lowe, most of the cars will be coming out of Europe and will be added to the count of local vehicles. Lowe, as well as Minister of Tourism, Obie Wilchcombe, is pleased to know that the revival of speed week works hand-in-hand with the government's Sports Tourism initiative. Island hopping is high on the schedule of events listed.
Lowe said: "This year we are going to have some out island trips available for people who come to travel. We want them to go out and see the out islands, see what the rest of the islands are about. It is not only about Nassau, it is also about the out islands and the whole of The Bahamas.
"We had quite a few people who came in residents of the out islands last year to visit and be a part of speed week. So there is a little part of domestic tourism we might be able to touch as well. We look forward to advertising that in the out islands, and make sure that people are aware of the event taking place in Nassau."
Mr Wilchcombe congratulated Lowe and McLaughlin for making the dream a reality. He said that there is enormous potential for the country, from the event.
"I believe that your involvement of the vendors, Bahamian people, generally, is the right thing to do," he said. "If the people aren't involved then more than likely, you are not going to be as successful as you want to be. But the buzz is created when the people get involved and talk about what can become that event. Then the world will recognize The Bahamas.
"It is also true that we strongly support Sports Tourism. When the department was created several years ago, it was always intended to use our shores to promote sports. What we are seeing now is this great attraction over the next several weeks. We will be hearing more about major golf events, also our relationship with sporting organization whether it is basketball or professional football, or baseball. The whole idea is to ensure that The Bahamas is, at all times, recognized for the destination that offers you everything you want and fulfilling the dreams that you have. Speed week has an appeal, and I have told the Director General what we must do is contribute more to the marketing of it, to ensure that we are getting the coverage of it around the world. Promote what you are doing to make it that exciting event that we believe will draw people from around the world."
Speed week will kick-off with a concert at Arawak Cay and an Auto Trade Show on November 24. The Antique Auto Club Show and Miss Speed Week beauty pageant will be held on Sunday.

Our bounteous harvest is on the way

For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. - St. Mark 4:28
I believe many of you have seen the television ad with various persons of different job descriptions, all forcefully expressing "It's my money and I want it NOW!" The state of today's world is such that if it isn't 'instant' it can't work or you are 'out of date or old school'. The regular cell phone has had its day and new technology places an instrument in your hand that can access information at lightning speed! But in spite of all this, a day is a day is a day, and nothing speeds up the movement of the sun from taking her usual time to cross the sky from east to west!
When I first became pregnant, it took 4 months for the doctor to say to my mother "are there twins in the family?" I had to wait 9 full months to find out that first there was a boy and then a girl! One cleaning product boasts that it does twice the job in half the time, but because I was having twins that did not mean that this would speed up the time of gestation!
May 7, 2012 saw Bahamians going to the polls to choose their leaders for the next five years. After some 10 hours of voting and before the start of another day, a new government was in place. Of course there was much joy and much sorrow! True to politics, many promises were made, including a measuring stick of the first 100 days, as to what the course of action would be for the remainder of the five year period!
Wow! From what my ear has been hearing and what my eyes have been reading, one would believe that it is time to go to the polls again - complaint after complaint after complaint, about what has not been done. Then our text for today resonated in my spirit - "For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself, first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear."
100 days! Call it 3 months, call it past due, call it trouble territory! Yes, 100 days and Lord you know that I have not paid my light bill in 100 days; I have not paid my mortgage in 100 days; I have not paid my rent in 100 days; I have not paid my child's school fees in 100 days; I have not given my financial obligation to the church in 100 days; I have not paid my sister and friend back the money I borrowed in 100 days; Lord I have not 'seen my way clear' for 100 days. The cupboard is empty, the dashboard is blinking red, Lord have mercy and come see about me here in the '100 days valley'! Is this not familiar territory?
Guess what? How many of us have told those who are near to us "I love you" in the last 100 days?
Many who are complaining about what is not and has not been done, just for the sake of complaining, need to know that 'achievements are made step by step". God has been so good to us as a people and nation. I heard Mr. M. Johnson of BTC boasting that the great USA does not have the 4G telecommunications technology in all its areas as we have here in The Bahamas. We have gold power at Olympics and brilliance in all fields of endeavor, much land and beautiful water filled with fish of all description, balmy breezes and yet we complain!
Jesus is giving His discourse of The Sower and the Seed, which every dear reader should know by heart, for we are all sowers! Life itself is a journey and time rules our lives. Jesus is telling us that we need to have patience. The Apostle tells us "Tribulation worketh patience, patience experience, experience hope and hope brings glory. The seed when put in the ground, which must first be prepared, is watered and given attention as it germinates and thereafter, if a bounteous harvest is to be reaped." I really like this text as my late father preached many times from the same. I can hear him now when I was anxious for things to happen, "First the blade, then the ear then the full corn shall appear."
My! How we want things to happen all at once, never minding that we ourselves are slothful and delinquent in many of our financial, health, moral, social and spiritual duties. We are quick to criticize without solutions to the problems.
We are at the place in our nation where dependence on God must be priority. God does not have to take 100 days to bless us as a people, we can be blessed in 100 hours with the find of hidden treasure or the influx of God-sent treasures. Investments. Why fret, whine, moan and despair! The Process of our National Blessing is in the Divine Pipeline and as I write, God has been watching over us for 100 days and more!
Let us be of good courage, kind, loving, forgiving, encouraging and thankful knowing that our bounteous harvest is on the way, which could be 'any day now!'

Food 99/1: Great Italian wines at a reasonable price

I like to pride myself on finding a great deal on something that is of great value. A few years back, I took courses from the International Sommelier Guild that allowed me to take my prudent nature and find some great value wines at a great price. The thousands of dollars achieving Sommelier status has paid itself back in the bargains I have found because of my knowledge!
The wine list at Flying Fish is made up of a lot of new world wines (Chile, USA, Australia, South Africa, Argentina) that are not the run-of-the-mill household names that one would usually find on a wine list. The price point is intentionally kept on the low side (wines start from $30 and go to $110) because a lot of the varieties and names on the list are unknown and trying something new at a lower price point is always more enticing than trying something new that is expensive.
One of my favorite no-fail "bargains" is a classification in Italy called Indicazione Geografica Tipica or IGT. IGT denotes a wine that is a typical indication of a certain geographical area.
Prior to 1992, there were three classifications for Italian wine: table wine, Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC), Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG). The DOC and DOCG are very specific to appellations.
Chianti, for instance, is a DOCG and has very specific rules winemakers must adhere to in order to label a wine as a DOCG. Some of the rules include grape variety, irrigation, ripeness of the grapes at picking, ageing and labeling. There are 32 DOCG and over 300 DOC regions in Italy.   You can recognize DOC and DOCG by the pink ribbon along the capsule of the bottle of wine.

Delegation to visit Dominican Republic to address illegal poaching

A delegation of government officials will visit the Dominican Republic at the end of the month in an effort to curb the presence of illegal Dominican poachers in The Bahamas, but if that fails the government is prepared to implement more stringent measures to keep them out of Bahamian waters, said Minister of Immigration and Foreign Affairs Fred Mitchell.
In an interview with The Nassau Guardian Mitchell said there have been far too many complaints made by Bahamian fisherman about illegal poaching.
"The Dominican Republic does not have a bank, The Bahamas is mainly [made up of] banks and shallow water, the conch and crawfish live on the banks and their nurseries are in the banks, so the question is where does the Dominican Republic get such an extensive fishery," Mitchell said.
"Our information is there are large commercial operations out of the north of the Dominican Republic and they really fund these exercises.
"We want the cooperation of the Dominican government to bring this to a quick halt, to let them know that we are quite serious about his matter."
He said if that doesn't work, more stringent measures will be taken by the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, and stronger legislative measures will be taken by the government to control the amount of poachers in Bahamian waters.
Mitchell noted that poaching poses a serious problem to the sustainability of fishing in The Bahamas.
"You must reap the fish by a method that is sustainable," he said.
"The problem we have is twofold. First of all the waters belong to The Bahamas, not the Dominican fisherman.
"Secondly the methods that are being used are in fact unsustainable and they wipe out so much of the species which are in the water, which makes the long-term prospects of recovery more difficult for all of the various species, and this includes conch and crawfish in particular."
