Fred Smith Meeting In Bimini Is Environment By False Pretences

06/18/17 8 AM

There was supposed to be a government sponsored meeting in Bimini to discuss the environment on Thursday 15 June.  Turns out it wasn’t what it was advertised.  Fred Smith and his band of quacks and frauds who call themselves Save The Bays, the fake environmental organization, were at the meeting trying to drum up support for whatever their latest crusade is on Bimini.  The Minister for the Environment did not show up and neither did the new MP for Bimini.  All missing in action.  The people of Bimini were incensed that they had been fooled and told Fred Smith that no one wanted to hear from him and that he was not wanted in Bimini.  There are real problems re the environment there with the Bimini Bay Resort threatening the mangroves in North Bimini with a golf course and further housing development.

Our condolences to the family of the late Rev. Dr. Stanley Pinder, a Stalwart Councilor of the Progressive Liberal Party form Bimini.  Rev. Pinder who was the Pastor and lead Bishop at the Zion Baptist Church in Bimini was a man of sterling character and of strict morals.  He spent his professional life as  the Restaurant Captain at the Big Game’s high end restaurant.  He had a reputation for making sure, clothes were properly ironed, finger nails clean, and shoes were polished.  If you showed up to work without all that in place, you are sent  back home.  No ifs ands or buts about it.   His children gave him a good send doff in Bimini on Saturday 5 September .  He was buried in the churchyard.  Foreign Minister Fred Mitchell attended the funeral.  The  Prime Minister Perry Christie travelled form Nassau to be there as was the Minister of Tourism and MP for Bimini Obie Wilchombe, Transport Minister Glenys Hanna Martin and  Attorney General Allyson Gibson.  Another tragic note was that another Reverend was speaking at the memorial service on the night before Dr. Pinder’s funeral  when he took ill and died in the church at the memorial service.  Rev. Clyde Flowers  became the latest of that Pindling generation of PLP leaders: Yama Bama, Cy Smith, Jerome Stuart,  Glen Rolle, Stanley Pinder all went before him.  Left standing George Weech, the former MP, Ansell Saunders Kirk Hinsey.  The question is who is succeeding these men in the PLP as the fixtures of community?
