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.

The Success Of Urban Renewal 2.0

Dear Editor, It is my humble submission that Urban Renewal 2.0, despite the occasional hiccup, is working and is succeeding within the inner city areas of New Providence. Some of the detractors and others who may subscribe to a politically different view than PLPs are quick to condemn and criticize the value and benefits of the same.

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!'
