Traffic Safety Tips for the New School Year!

Sargeant Garlon Rolle of the Royal Bahamas Police Force visited Greg, Tony, and Dwain this morning to share his traffic safety tips with the public.

Some of his tips include:

  • Leave earlier to avoid having to speed.
  • Be patient on the road
  • Do NOT text and drive! (Your attention must be on the road at all times)
  • Watch for pedestrians
  • If you must stop, pull to the side to avoid causing an accident.
  • Do not drop anyone off on the round-a-bout
  • Wear your seatbelt and make sure your passengers are wearing theirs as well.
  • Practice defensive driving – drive to save lives, save money, and save time by driving carefully to avoid the aftermath of traffic accidents.
Thank you for sharing your tips, Sargeant Rolle!

Lyrical Gymnastics by Tyockin Bethell

Tyockin Bethell, a talented Bahamian writer, is releasing his first book on Saturday, July 29th, 2017. Lyrical Gymnastics: Probation of the Mind contains philosophical quotations intended to free the mind.

Bethell believes that people tend to think themselves into boxes and become prisoners of the mind. The purpose of the compilation is to paint an image in people’s minds and have them contemplate it.  He hopes that his work inspires other aspiring writers to pursue their passion and release their material.

Lyrical Gymnastics: Probation of the Mind will be available for purchase at Easy Life in Palm Dale as well as on Amazon (paperback or Kindle). Pirate’s Republic is hosting the release party on July 29th, 2017. Star 106 encourages you to support Tyockin Bethell, an up and coming, Bahamian author.

Mr. Duran McNeil, their teacher, will be traveling with his students to Washington, D.C.  for a high school robotics competition on July 14th, 2017. Choo Choo is designed to detect water particles.
