Binge drinking, marijuana smoking, and illicit substance abuse – all appear to be on the rise with high school students in the country. Terry Fountain, National Anti-Drug Secretariat, guides us through some of the surprising findings of the 2012 Bahamas Secondary School Drug Prevalence Survey.
“In The News”, we get reaction to the latest heated row in the House on the Stem Cell Bill, and the revelations about the proposed stem cell treatment centre in Grand Bahama. We also discuss the Prime Minister’s response to the Constitutional Commission’s recommendations about Bahamas gambling in casinos and lotteries.
And “Echoes” is Emanji Circus Arts’ latest production. Founder/Director Jarvis Grant tells us this show will be “a tribute to 40 years of Bahamian Entertainment – Circus Style”. Performers Shenika Polhamus and Danya Dean also tell us about their experiences with the first-ever Bahamian circus. “Echoes” will be staged at the National Centre for the Performing Arts on Shirley Street today through Saturday (July 20), 11am and 8pm. Tickets are $20 adults, $10 children. Log on to www.emanjicircusarts.com
