Today on MORNING BLEND:
Gevon Moss with the Downtown Nassau Partnership gives us the latest on the Downtown Nassau redevelopment plans, including the status of the new boardwalk, and the efforts to address the long-depressed section of Bay Street, east of East Street.
Moss also tells us about “12 Days of Christmas Downtown!” The promotion begins this Friday and runs through Christmas Eve. It includes late-night shopping hours, a “Pompey Square Kids Festival”, and a “Fruit Cake Battle”. For details about these events, check out the Downtown Nassau Partnership on Facebook.
And we conduct “The Bahamian Sports Year in Review”. Morning Blend Contributor Fred Sturrup discusses some of the highlights and lowlights, achievements and disappointments of sports and athletes in The Bahamas in 2013, and looks ahead to what can be expected in 2014.
“In The News”, we discuss this morning’s “Immigration Spot Checks”. Just what were immigration officials hoping to achieve by asking motorists, “What’s your name?”?
And we discuss DPM Philip Davis’ first comments to the media after being held up and robbed in his home Monday morning. Plus, the surprising statements from FNM Leader Dr. Hubert Minnis, who says PM Christie should have left South Africa (and the Nelson Mandela Memorial Service) the moment he learned what happened to Davis.
