When is the Bahamas going to start planning how to combat this deadly disease, seeing as its potential to reach our shores is merely a few hours plane ride away.

I refer to the Business Section of the Nassau Guardian’s October 3rd edition in which the headline “Forget beaches, says Vasser: Market your food” was a welcomed read.
Apparently the government has stated that the cruise ships were incorrect in their assertions and nothing further has been heard on the issue.
In the Nassau Guardian newspaper edition of October 1st there is a statement in the Business Section by Minister Khaalis Rolle stating “BAIC must invest in ‘business side’ of Junkanoo” – well blow me down!
I have read with amazement several news articles over the past week that have prompted me to put pen to paper once again!
It has been almost a year since I have put pen to paper to write in response to the former Mardi Gras debacle that has now morphed into Bahamas Carnival…
It is time for the ‘powers that be’ to give Art, Culture and Heritage the respect it deserves, and for the record, this does NOT include imposing Mardi Gras and Carnival concepts on our home ground to dilute the power of junkanoo.
I read with great interest, an article entitled ‘Tuned in to reading’ which explained an award winning melodic learning program that was successfully used as a literacy tool in a pilot study at Columbus Primary School in 2011 and is now being introduced in other public schools with more teachers being trained in its use.
There has been a lot of talk about this initiative over the past several years, and the public has been subjected to bursts of information every now and then as the specially formed COB University Task Force carries out its mandate.
