Brendalee Adderley, Project Manager for the Department of Statistic’s Household Expenditure Survey, gives us details about the survey, which is currently underway throughout the country. Adderley says the intensive survey can take up to three hours, depending on the number of people in the household.
Also, we talk to Mike Sands, President of the Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations, about the arrest in Tallahassee, Florida, of Bahamian junior athlete and Florida State University (FSU) student Stephen Newbold. Sands says the BAAAs is trying to determine what role, if any, Newbold – who has been suspended from the FSU track team – will play with Team Bahamas at next week’s CARIFTA track & field championships.
Plus, we have a heated discussion about Police Commissioner Ellison Greenslade’s comments that recent claims of brutality and abuse are a “black eye” on the force, and that the public appears to be losing confidence in the police. And after roaming dogs attack a woman while she’s jogging, we and our listeners are enraged that there is still not tougher legislation in place to tackle the problem of roaming dogs and their wayward “owners”.
