Holiday Basket Brigade 2015

Dear Friends,

As you may know, our company, Coldwell Banker James Sarles Realty, coordinates its own personal Basket Brigade each year, and we are asking for your help again for this 8th Annual Basket Brigade.

The Basket Brigade is built on a simple notion:

"One small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of hundreds. It takes only one light to dispel the darkness, and even just one basket or a few, to bring hope!"  

Each year, a few days before Christmas, our entire James Sarles Realty staff assembles food baskets and gift certificates with items for a wonderful Christmas Dinner for people who really are in need of a holiday lift and could certainly not afford a Turkey dinner for Christmas. These baskets are given to the most needy families on Grand Bahama.  We find the most needy people on Grand Bahama through a variety of sources, and acting as delivery people, we anonymously deliver the beautifully prepared baskets throughout Grand Bahama Island with a simple note that says:

"This comes to you from someone who cares about you. All we ask is that you take care of yourself well enough to be able to do this for someone else someday."

If you feel called to help our program  please stop in the office and drop off a check to:
James Sarles Realty "Basket Brigade"

We accept PayPal too.  Send PayPal funds to
To wire funds contact Kim Anthony at

If you live on the island we will pick up the check.

All The Best for Happy Holidays!

Caribbean Journal: At Grand Bahama's Best Restaurant, A New Kind of Island Cuisine

International News Feature via Caribbean Journal:
April 25, 2015

By Joshua Martinez
CJ Contributor (Click here for original story at
FREEPORT —“I’m here because it’s home.”
It’s this kind of passion that always emanates from Chef Tim Tibbitt’s voice, and it’s something that resonates throughout his restuarant.
Tibitts, a native of the Bahamas, opened Flying Fish Modern Seafood in 2012 with his wife, Sommelier Rebecca Tibbitts.
Since then, it’s been a magnificent journey that has seen the eatery become not just the best restaurant in Grand Bahama, but one of the region’s best.
The restaurant sits aside a pier overlooking the waters of Bell Channel Bay, with a facade very much in line with the nearby, rustic island architecture.
Above: Chef Tim Tibbitts
But once one steps inside, everything changes — to something closer to Ocean Drive in Miami.
It’s hip, it’s sleek, it’s contemporary — attention to detail is Flying Fish’s hallmark, embodied in everything from the in-house-designed cutlery to the plating, which is often performed via tweezers.
That’s because when Flying Fish styles itself as Modern Seafood, it means modern.
This is the wider Caribbean region’s hub of molecular gastronomy, applying cutting-edge culinary science to classic island cuisine.
That means the kinds of dishes that have as many as 27 elements, often with delightfully playful manifestations, especially the use of foam.
The latter, Tibbitts tells me, “lets you place [flavour] exactly where you want it.”
Try the tasting menu here and you get a gastronomic tour de force that draws from the Chef’s own story: the Mahi Mahi is a fusion of German-Southeast Asian and Bahamian tastes, and the Grilled Calamari is his now-signature dish.
The emphasis here is on local sourcing, like dragonfruit sorbet and Wahoo cured in Bahamian-pink-sand-distilled vodka.
Here in Tibbitts’ laboratory, there is a stunning alchemy going on.
Walk inside from Freeport to Miami and suddenly you’re transported right into Tibbitts’ home.
Tibbitts is here because he’s home, and he wants you to join him for dinner.
