Did you know that the very first newspaper in The Bahamas was operated by John Wells, Great, Great (maybe even another great :-) grandfather of Lisa Wells, founder of BahamasB2B.com. It was called The Bahamas Gazette and he created the motto, "Nullius Addictus Jurare In Verba Magistri", the motto that The Tribune uses now.

Very informative and timely article

I could tell you the real story about how and why Mr. Perry's alternative energy business collapsed, and how the Marine Science facility at LSI was utterly corrupted by politics and infighting if you are really interested, but I have to warn you, it is not a very pretty picture. You can click on my name link to read the one and only physics paper that came out of that era at Lee Stocking Island, but it had nothing to do with Perry Energy, and everything to do with the generosity and kindness of the local Bahamian community.
