Would any one be interested in planning a sign to be placed on key sections of public beach access areas to create awareness of the garbage in the location? Idea is to present the sign to the city and find if they will be willing to pay for the expenses of making the sign (would be like a traffic sign) that would say: Respect your beach, or Respect water, or if you have any suggestions or ideas. Lets talk. Need help finding out who to call or go to in the bahamas to get the signed commissioned.

This continues to be a huge and ongoing issue. At least 7 years ago I participated with my 3 year old in a massive beach cleanup effort hosted and sponsored by NPCC (New Providence Community Church). Large (20 ft x 5 ft) trash receptacles were brought out to the beach where numerous bags of trash and several refrigerators were removed from the beach. After the cleanup was completed we stayed to enjoy a proper beach barbecue and we were sure to remove all of our trash! Fast forward to 2015 and the Coral Habour beach continues to be an eyesore, especially after long holiday weekends. My other half who is Bahamian, contacted the radio station to complain. He was invited to come in and voice his concerns on air. You should be able to get direction on who to contact to create a sign and voice your concerns by contacting Darold Miller (proactive radio personality) @ 325-5405. He will probably know of other keep the environment clean initiatives.

I think this is a great idea. I walk Goodman Bay quite frequently and it is so sad to see the amount of trash everywhere. The trash cans are always overflowing so that doesn't help the situation. Maybe the city needs to pick up the trash more often than once a week, I believe I normally see them on Tuesdays. I would love to help out in anyway possible. ie- more trash cans, talking to the city about picking up the trash more often, signs etc...

still on moving to Bahamas: please what are good & bad of living in Paradise Island??
breija replied on August 24, 2015 with:
Hi Bepa, Been here almost 10 years, and have lots of thoughts to share. As bergie suggested, west, specifically Sandyport & Balmoral, are good areas to check out. However, everyone's situation is different. Feel free to provide more info, publicly or via PM, to clarify your situation and what info you are looking for. If you are 20 something and wanting to socialize, vs being in your 30's with a young family and wanting to be able to connect with other young moms and families, what you may be looking for will differ. Feel free to PM!

I will be a permanent resident of the Bahamas receiving my income from the US govt.. How long will I have to file/pay US income taxes?
BigYard replied on August 17, 2015 with:
Yes - There is a navy base on Andros Island, where a US government contractor manages US employees. The company is called Pacific Engineers Corporation. they are only located on Andros.

Of course every citizen of the state is entitled to pay their taxes.One large emergency many individuals face is having the government question their lives. After just a couple of years of forgetting to file taxes, the IRS may come after you for back-taxes. Not only do they want the taxes you never paid, but they also put some fines to them for not paying to begin with. A pay day loan can help you pay the IRS and get them out of your life until next year. Get more information at: Payday Loans
