first_imgThe Minister of Public Works of Bahamas, Desmond Bannister recently said that his ministry is dedicated to improving the tourism scenario in the country and is ready to do anything to achieve the goal.  By improving tourism products Bannister meant ensuring that places of tourists’ interests look attractive and attract travellers.Addressing members of the Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Associations, Bannister said, “In my capacity as Minister of Public Works, I look forward to working with you to systematically make positive improvements that will enhance the tourism product and improve the standard of living for all Bahamians.”“It will take a sustained effort by all of us, but I’m confident that there will be a positive turn around. However, I warn you that it will be incremental as I work on a capital budget of only USD 128 million a year,’’ he said.Bannister confirmed that the ministry has already begun to improve roadways with a focus on those in the family island.He stated, “You’ll be aware of the work on East Bay Street, Farrington Road and Tonique Darling Highway. Many of you will also be aware of the milling that’s going on at night at the Paradise Island Bridge and the extensive paving in Palmdale.”“Soon we will address Nassau Street, East Street, Village Road and Bernard Road. It is not an easy process and I must request your patience,” he added.last_img read more

first_imgKeeping up with all of the mock drafts, it seems the Arizona Cardinals will either draft a pass-rusher or a running back. Since they don’t pick until the 24th spot, it’s hard to predict who will even be available that late in the first round. Regardless of who might still be on the table, NFL.com’s Mike Mayock said Randy Gregory would be a great fit for the Cardinals.Thanks to a positive drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine and a history of failed drug tests in college, the Nebraska pass rusher’s draft status is difficult to peg. Mayock indicated Gregory could land at any number of draft slots, but mentioned either of the Saints’ two first-round picks (Nos. 13 and 31) or Arizona at No. 24 as possibilities. Top Stories Gregory was a star his last two seasons at Nebraska. He recorded 17.5 sacks, 120 total tackles, two forced fumbles and two interceptions. The Cardinals ranked 24th in the NFL with 35 sacks as a team last season. 0 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retirescenter_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The former Cornhusker visited Arizona earlier this month.
