Bahamas finding innovative new ways to protect the ozone layer
Written by BIS   

Winner Ozone Layer Poster Competition - Chloe Stuart, grade nine student of Eight Mile Rock High School in Grand Bahama, created the winning poster among high school students to bring awareness of the need to protect the ozone layer.  It was displayed at the opening ceremony of the two-day Sub-Regional Meeting of the Ozone Officers of The English Speaking Caribbean and Haiti at SuperClubs Breezes, March 25, 2015.  (BIS Photo/Kristaan Ingraham)NASSAU, Bahamas -- The Bahamas has been pursuing Ocean Thermal Energy as an ozone friendly alternative when it comes to air conditioning and/or refrigeration, Minister of the Environment and Housing the Hon. Kenred Dorsett said.

The mega-resort of Baha Mar has sought out this technology as an alternative to reducing its electrical cost and refrigerant usage, Minister Dorsett explained.

Consequently, The Baha Mar Sea Water District Cooling (SDC) Project has been drafted, he said at the opening ceremony of the two-day Sub-Regional Meeting of the Ozone Officers of The English Speaking Caribbean and Haiti at SuperClubs Breezes, Wednesday, March 25, 2015.  

“Subject to the compliance with all regulatory requirements of the various agencies, the Government of The Bahamas has agreed to the installation of an undersea pipeline that would run along the route extending from Prospect Ridge up to Goodman’s Bay parking lot and enter the water toward Long Cay.

“The technology associated with this pipeline is designed for 9,800 tons of ocean water to meet 100 per cent of the air-conditioning load of Baha Mar.  It is expected to displace Baha Mar’s chiller load of 7 Megawatts and 59,000 barrels of oil/year.”

Submitted by the U.S. Embassy Nassau   

BASH Executive Director Terry Miller receives grant certificate from Susan Snyder, the Deputy Director for Western Hemisphere Programs in the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.  NASSAU, Bahamas -- On Tuesday, March 24, the U.S. Embassy’s International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) Section awarded the Bahamas Association for Social Health (BASH) a $25,000 grant to implement an anti-drug media campaign targeting at-risk populations in The Bahamas.  BASH submitted the winning proposal for an openly-competed small grant competition.  

The grant was awarded at BASH’s residential substance treatment center and headquarters by Susan Snyder, the Deputy Director for Western Hemisphere Programs in the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.  

“INL looks forward to continued collaboration and cooperation with BASH to achieve our shared goals,” Ms. Snyder told BASH Executive Director Terry Miller and BASH Director of Treatment Services Lowena West at the award presentation.  

With the grant money, BASH plans to create a documentary and three public service announcements highlighting the damaging consequences of drug abuse.  The documentary, tentatively titled “Healthy Choices,” will educate the public about the stark realities of substance abuse and its impact on individuals, families, and communities.  

Once production is complete, the documentary and public service announcements will run on local television stations.  In addition, BASH plans to conduct seminars and outreach with parents, teachers and high school students.  Funding for the grant comes under the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative.

All systems go for GB Agri-Business Expo 2015
Written by BIS   

AGRI-BUSINESS – Members of the Grand Bahama Agri-Business Expo are pictured here with family members of the late Dwight Sawyer, in whose memory the event is being staged. The Expo will be held this coming Friday and Saturday, March 27 and 28, at Goombay Park.  Minister of Agriculture and Marine Resources, the Honourable V. Alfred Gray will deliver opening remarks.  (BIS Photo/Andrew Miller)FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Everything is in place for the staging of the Grand Bahama Agri-Business Expo, says its Chairperson, West Grand Bahama Administrator Brenda Colebrook.

Scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 27 and 28,  at the old Goombay Park at the rear of the International Bazaar, this event is designed to improve awareness of the importance of moving towards food security and at the same time focus on business opportunities in the agricultural and marine sectors.

This year, the Agri-business Expo is being dedicated to the memory Dwight Sawyer, an outstanding Bahamian farmer who made a tremendous impact in his field.

According to Ms. Colebrook, these Expos are being held in several major islands throughout the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and present a golden opportunity for local residents to display and sell their products.

“Sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources, indeed these expos are viewed as a timely opportunity to expose Bahamians to employment opportunities and the potential for work in the agriculture and marine sector which as the Minister recently described as becoming “sexy” given the fact many Bahamians are engaged in backyard farming, while a huge number have turned to fishing, farming and arts a craft for their economic future,” she stated.
