By MEGAN REYNOLDS Tribune Staff Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org HALLOWEEN can turn from fun and games to a frightening reality when criminals use the occasion to pounce on unsuspecting victims, police warn. Throwing eggs and flour can escalate into the pelting of rocks at people and vehicles, and masked costumes can be used by criminals to gain access to homes or attack residents, Police Sergeant Anthony Rolle warned in a press conference at the Crime Prevention Office yesterday. Halloween can be a fun time for kids, but its also a time for us to be very vigilant, said Sgt Rolle. Throwing eggs, we have found, has sometimes escalated to throwing rocks, with people trying to damage someones car or cause them injury. If someone in the neighourhood has a beef with someone, they will sneak up in the dark and hurt them in the name of Halloween. We want everybody to have fun, but we want people to respect the rights of others.

Speaking with the officer in charge of the Central Police station, Chief Superintendent Emerick Seymour, the police e xpect to bring charges against at least one man and a woman early next week. In addition to prosecution, Chief Superintendent Sey mour said the Jamaican women may face investigation by the Immigration Department on the legitimacy of their presence in the country. We have been doing our intelligence, and in addition, we have been getting some complaints of unscrupulous behaviour being perpetrated by individuals at certain estab lishments. So we have in recent days arrested at least six individu als; two Bahamians and four foreign nationals and we are conducting our investigations into the behaviour of these i ndividuals. I can also tell you that we expect to charge at least two of them, he said. C hief Superintendent Seymour said police will continue t o have a presence in the area t o discourage further illegal activity. On Monday evening, The Tribune conducted its own investigations into the con tinuing activities at the for mer Mayfair hotel. A fter reportedly being shut down nearly two years ago after a Tribune investigation in 2008, it appeared that operations at the reported brothel were up and running. From a secure location, eye witnesses observed one of the handlers for the women, who are said to be housed in the complex, approach three American male tourists and offer them the girls services. In plain sight of the Fort Charlotte Police Station, the man asked the group if they were interested in purchasing any women for the night. Avoiding his remarks, the men continued down the street, despite being followed and assured by the handler that whatever they were seek ing he could supply.

F RIENDS of the Environment has partnered with Dr Craig Layman and his research team from Florida International University to restore a vital tidal creek and wetland area in Abaco. Broad Creek, located just south of Marsh Harbour near Camp Abaco has been blocked for more than 30 years after a road was constructed to build the camp. The restoration project entailed removing a small area of the road, installing culverts to allow water flow under the traffic, and then reforming the road. The team then had to selectively remove mangroves that had encroached into the channel after road construction had taken place. Kristin Williams, executive director Friends of the Environment, said: Tidal creeks and mangrove wetlands are among the most important habitats in the Bahamas because of the important role they play as nurseries for juve nile and adult fishes and invertebrates. For example, these areas provide a safe home for juvenile Nassau Grouper and crawfish before these individuals move to deeper waters as adults. Unfortunately, human impacts are responsible for significant wetland degradation across the country, including direct removal, dredging and pollution. But perhaps the most com mon problem in the Bahamas is fragmentation the result of some obstruction, typically a road, that blocks the flow of water from the ocean into the wetland. Without this flow of water, sediment builds up and the water becomes extremely hot, salty, and depleted of oxygen, creating a harsh place for animals to live. Fragmentation results in drastic changes to the environ ment and the loss of critical fish nurseries. Within the first 24 hours of the culvert installation, sever al snappers and barracuda had already begun to use the previously blocked area. Dr Layman said: Within just a couple of years, the successful restoration could lead to significantly increased production of snapper, including marked increases of adult snapper on nearby reefs. In addition to the scientific and conservation components of the restoration, Friends of the Environment used the project as an educational outreach initiative for students and local community members. FRIENDS co-ordinated pre sentations in the local schools and conducted field trips so that the students could actually par ticipate in the restoration. A total of 510 students and adults assisted in reclaiming around 28 acres of wetlands that had been fragmented by the road. Additionally, around an area of the same size on the down stream side of the road was restored to its original state by selectively removing mangroves. Mrs Williams said: This creek restoration is such a positive project that allows the community to improve their environment without losing anything in the process. Those who participated in the restora tion will have a sense of pride knowing the long term ecological benefits of their efforts. The volunteers were aided in their efforts by the Ministry of Works, Big Cat, Adele and Timmy McDonald, The Nature Conservancy, Schooner Bay, and Serenity Point.

EDITOR, The Tribune. It would be appreciated if you would please allow some space in your editorial column for this letter. I have read the comments in the newspapers, listened to the radio and watched television in regard to the anarchic behaviour of the staff of ZNS. The comments of Fred Mitchell and Philip Brave Davis were very disappointing because they sat in the same place in government, and, in respect to Philip Brave Davis, he has been in the seat for 20 years. During their terms, they were aware of the problem which successive governments faced in trying to meet the payroll for an over-staffed Civil Service for many years. It is noted that successive governments have had to make regular borrowings from the IMF for salaries for the Civil Service and to support the quasi-governmental entities, of which ZNS is only one. In spite of this knowledge, we have senior PLP politicians seeking to mislead the public with their political rhetoric and deceitful statements to encourage this anarchy. ZNS staffers, you are and have been aware of the impending downsizing. You were also aware that you were represented at the table by your union representatives. When you took your action against this nation, you showed your selves incapable of abiding by the rule of law which every country must uphold. Threats against the Head of State of any country is tantamount to a treasonous act. But in The Bahamas., some of us believe that we should be able to do what we want, say what we want, against whom we want, with impunity. If you know that we are in a recession, and that you are not creating sufficient income from your company to keep you solvent and meet your financial obligations, what are you doing going up against the state when you are aware of these facts? I say shame on all of you at ZNS for disrupting this nations television and radio lines. Dot hings in decency and order and in accordance with the rule of law.

The two countries, with a long history of mutual antagonism, are at odds over many big issues: from currency and trade policy to the U.S. naval dominance of the Asia-Pacific region, from U.S. arms sales to Taiwanto China's human rights record and its territorial disputes in the South China Sea. But the Obama administration says it has not given up on building stronger bonds with Beijing, one of the world's fastest growing economic and military powers. In a speech in Honolulu Thursday, Clin ton talked tough, lumping China with North Korea and Myanmar as sources of concern about "deep-seated challenges" facing the Asia-Pacific region. She also urged Beijing to become the United States' partner in tackling a number of regional and global challenges. Despite the stormy U.S.-China relationship, Drew Thompson, director of China studies at the Nixon Centre in Washington, sees the administration taking a stay-thecourse approach overall. "It's only the Chinese who are down" about the rocky side of the relationship, Thompson said in an interview Thursday. Kurt Campbell, the State Department's top Asia policy official, said it is vital for the U.S. to maintain "cool-headed" diplomacy with China. "We all understand the stakes involved and the importance for a positive, construc tive and, frankly, a relationship with a degree of confidence between the United States and China going forward," he said Tuesday in describing Clinton's China visit. Clinton was in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Fri day. She planned to meet with the Chinese foreign minister there on Saturday before making a brief visit to China's Hainan Island with her Chinese counterpart, State Councilor Dai Bingguo. Their talks are intendedto raise some of the issues dividing the two countries and pave the way for President Hu Jintao's visit to Washington early next year. Beijing's growing economic might and more assertive role on the world stage make its support crucial to many of President Barack Obama's priorities including halt ing the global spread of nuclear arms. China is seen as the key to persuading North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons programme. China's dependence on Iranian oil for its rapidly industrializing economy makes it crucial to the success of U.N. sanctions aimed at forcing Iran to negotiate over its nuclear programme. "We're seeking the mantra of a positive, cooperative, constructive relationship," Jeff Bader of the National Security Council said Thursday. He noted that Obama has met seven times with Hu and three times with Premier Wen Jiabao. "I guarantee you that's unprecedented in modern history," Bader said. But the U.S. has also felt compelled to reassure Asian nations that the U.S. is not ceding its major role in the Asia-Pacific region, bolstering ties to longtime allies Japan and South Korea. In an unmistakable reference to China, Clinton said Thursday that "military buildups matched with ongoing territorial disputes create anxieties that reverberate." The disputes are a prominent part of the backdrop to Clinton's stop on Hainan, a tropical island east of Vietnam in the South China Sea. A U.S. Navy spy plane was forced to land there in April 2001 after it col lided with a Chinese fighter jet. The 24 U.S. crew members were held for 11 days until the Bush administration apologized for the collision that killed a Chinese pilot. China is also sparring with its neighbours over control of the Spratly and Paracel islands, claimed by Vietnam and other nations as well as Beijing. The contested islands straddle busy sea lanes that are a crucial conduit for oil and other resources fueling China's fast-expanding economy. Clinton raised hackles in Beijing when she said in July that the United States has a national interest in the peaceful resolution of competing claims to the islands. The Pentagon has long expressed concern about the rapid modernization of China's military, particularly its focus on deploying ballistic missiles opposite Taiwan, the semi-autonomous island that Beijing considers a renegade province. Defence Secretary Robert Gates accepted an invitation to visit China and is expected to go next year. (This article was written by Robert Burns, AP National Security writer). Shame on ZNS for disrupting TV, radio lines LETTERS l email@example.com US seeks common ground with China E DITOR, The Tribune. And the people murmured and complained against Moses, saying What shall we drink? And he cried unto the Lord and the Lord shewed him a tree which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet. And said, If thou will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of t hese diseases upon thee. Exodus 15: 24 27. Yes, there is a group of young men and young women in this country who do not care. Yes, there is a group of people who did a poor job of parenting. Yes, some twenty years ago, some young people were making children. What I'm saying is that, children were having children and knew nothing about parenting. Yes, we have inherited a seed planting curse that some of our f orefathers had left behind. This curse of this seed planter is still upon a group of our males and the only thing they are doing is planting seeds into a ground and they hardly know what they are producing. So what will we do is the question? Every time you turn around on the radio we hear of someone complaining about the Gov ernment. The Government should do this and theG overnment should do the next. They should build the roads; they should not build the roads. They should give them jobs; they should not give them jobs. It's time to stop complaining and start giving thanks to God. Some countries do not have roads. Thank God you have life and do something constructive with it. Anytime the complaining murmuring spirit rises up, begin to pray and praise God and give Him thanks. O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good and His mercy endureth forever. Just ask yourself this question: If my parents had complained where would I be? If God would complain every time we did something sinful what would happen to us? Bahamas, stop complaining. There are some peo ple who have never been on an airplane and they live in North America. Stop complaining; there are some people who have never riden in a car. There are some people in this world who have n ever sat on a toilet bowl that can flush, stop complaining. There are some people who have n ever seen a pump to pump water. As a matter of fact some people still draw water from wells. Stop complaining, Bahamas. God don't like it. I call upon every man, woman, boy and girl to pick a day and don't complain but just pray and give God thanks. But the people were thirsty for water there, and they grumbled against Moses. They said, Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die of t hirst? Exodus 17 : 3 Moses ended up crying before the Lord, What shall I do unto the people, they are ready to stone me? But God fixed it for Moses and they called the place Massah (testing and Meribah (quarreling or complaining. Exodus 17: 3-7. Even God gets angry of complainers. Complainers get nothing done. Complainers are none achievers. Complainers are not useful. Com p lainers are always looking for a way out. Hanna was a praying woman and not a com plainer and she had so much to complain about, but she prayed instead. Ruth said: Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. This woman could have complained, but she did not. T hat is why she met Boaz and her life was changed. My brothers and sisters, Esther could have also complained but she chose to do something about the plot to destroy the Jews. Esther 3:1 15. Complain less and achieve more by doing something about the matter. Stop complaining. Let's take a troubled young man and show him love. Let's try to give him something new. Yes, he might not know who his father might be and, yes, he does not know what it is for a real man to put his arms around him and say, God loves you and so do I. Let us stop the complaining as a people and show love and kindness to all. B. BULLARD Nassau, October 27, 2010. Complain less and achieve more

Speaking at the presenta tion, Mr Ingraham explained to the Chinese people the significance of Junkanoo in Bahamian culture. Art so often tells the story of a people as your fine exhibits show. For us in the Bahamas, Junkanoo a music parade and costume extravaganza is an important facet of our social culture. Inherited from our African forefathers, Junkanoo is an integral part of our cultural imagination. Today it is one of the more popular and dynamic expressions of Bahamian cultural heritage, he said. This festival of freedom is inextricably tied in the minds of Bahamians with Boxing Day and New Years celebrations. Yet, its brilliance is not bound by any season, class or creed and it has become the music we use to mark significant national milestones. And so it is my great pleasure to present to you this evening, five beautiful Junkanoo pieces to be added to your impressive art collec tion. The five pieces selected for the China National Museum of Fine Arts were hand-crafted by skilled and talented artists in the Bahamas, Mr Ingraham said. They are beautifully decorated with vibrant colour using crepe paper, paint, glitter, beads and other ornaments. They represent some of what one might see paraded by our Bahamian junkanooers, during our Boxing Day and New Years Day. The prime minister said these pieces depict the mystical wonders, rich culture and heritage of the Bahamas. They are also a part of the success story of the Shanghai Expo 2010, marking the Bahamas participation in the Expo and they are a tribute to the spirit of friendship and cooperation already established between our two countries, he said. Prime Minister Ingraham is visiting the country at the invitation of the Chinese gov ernment to discuss issues with several local companies and the government of the People's Republic of China.

THE School of English Studies at the College of the Bahamas will host its fifth annual Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecture with special guest Dr Anna Everett on Thursday, November 4. As a recent winner of the prestigious UCSB Plous Award, Dr Everett is exceptionally experienced in the fields of film and TV history, African-American film and culture, and digital media technologies. She is the author of Returning the Gaze: A Geneal ogy of Black Film Criticism, 1909-1949 and Digital Diaspora: A Race for Cyberspace. She is the founder and managing editor of the Internet newsletter, Screening Noir Online. Dr Everett has written numerous articles including The Revolution Will Be Digitised: Afrocentricity and the Digital Public Sphere and The Black Press in the Age of Digital Reproduction. Her presentation at this years Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecture, Have We Become Postracial Yet?: Trends in Race, Media and Identity Politics in the Age of Obama is expected to attract film and media enthusiasts, students and academics from the College and the wider commu nity. Organizer for this years event, Dr Toni Francis, Assistant Professor in the School of English Studies, said Dr Anna Everett is one of the leading historians of black film criticism. Her breadth of knowledge on race and film criticism m akes her an excellent choice for a lecture here at the Col lege of the Bahamas, where we offer courses in race and film, film criticism and film history. Dr Everett's current research on race representation in video games and her work on the media coverage of the BarackO bama presidential race are also topics that would be of great interest not only to our students but also to the general public, said Dr Francis. Dr Marjorie Brooks-Jones, chair of the School of English Studies, commented that this years choice of speaker is most appropriate given the medias interest in, and representations of, President Obama. Dr Brooks-Jones added that Dr Everetts visit to the college is timely as earlier this year, the college hosted the Sidney Poitier International Conference and Film Festival, a hugely successful event. The school has also recently added a minor in drama and film studies. She said: The study of film continues to attract students in the humanities and the School of English Studies prides itself on keeping up to date with developments in the academy. For us, it makes a great deal of sense for the speaker to be a film scholar. The Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecture will be held at the College of the Bahamas Performing Arts Centre, Oakes Field on Thursday November 4 at 7 pm. Immediately follow ing the event, Dr Everett will hold a book signing. The public is invited to attend this free event. The lecture series is named in honour of the late Anatol Rodgers who contributed to the development of education in the Bahamas from 1933-1975,and who was the third Bahami an and first female principal of the Government High School (1971-1975 taught a variety of subjects dur ing her professional life, Mrs Rodgers' first love was English.

ELIZABETH ROBERTS, A ssociated Press HAMILTON, Bermuda Bermuda canceled ferry services and urged islandersto secure their boats as Tropical Storm Shary swirled toward the tiny British Atlantic territory Friday. The storm had sustained winds of 70 mph (110 kph and could gain strength before passing near or just east of the island by early Sat-u rday morning, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. The darkening skies did not dampen the spirits of tourists like Bill and Margaret Breen,a married couple from Boston, who carried rain jackets as they strolled through H amilton. "We're flying home tomorrow afternoon, so the only i ssue could be the storm a ffecting the flight. But there would be a lot worse things than to stay another day," said Bill Breen, 45. Friday afternoon, Shary's c ore was about 80 miles (130 kilometers) south-southeast of Bermuda, according to the hurricane center. It was moving northeast at 16 mph (26 kph). B oats Derrick Binns, the perman ent secretary of the Home A ffairs Ministry, called on islanders to tie up their boats a nd secure any outdoor furn iture that could blow away in t he wind. He also urged cyclists and motorists to be careful on the roads. Shary is the 19th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. In late September, Hurric ane Igor knocked out power to half of Bermuda when it passed nearby as a Category 1 hurricane. It did not cause any major damage or injuries, h owever. Also Friday, Tropical Storm Tomas formed in the Atlantic, and forecasters said it could become a hurric ane after passing over the W indward Islands on Saturd ay. n SEESTORYBELOW C M Y K C M Y K LOCAL AND OVERSEAS NEWS T HE TRIBUNE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2010, PAGE 11 TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM 52wk-Hi52wk-LowSecurit y Previous CloseToday's CloseChangeDaily Vol.EPS $Div $P/EYield 1.261.00AML Foods Limited1.011.010.002,0000.1500.0406.73.96% 1 0.759.67Bahamas Property Fund10.6310.630.000.0130.200817.71.88% 6 .184.50Bank of Bahamas4.904.900.000.5980.2608.25.31% 0.580.18Benchmark0.180.180.00-0.8770.000N/M0.00% 3.492.84Bahamas Waste2.842.840.005000.1680.09016.93.17% 2.152.14Fidelity Bank2.172.170.000.0160.040135.61.84% 12.509.62Cable Bahamas10.2410.470.2314,7901.2270.3108.52.96% 2.842.36Colina Holdings2.362.360.000.7810.0403.01.69%7 .005.40Commonwealth Bank (S1)6.596.50-0.0934,6370.4220.23015.43.54% 3 .651.63Consolidated Water BDRs1.861.890.030.1110.04517.02.38% 2.551.60Doctor's Hospital1.771.770.000.1990.1108.96.21% 6.995.94Famguard6.076.070.00-0.0030.240N/M3.95% 10.207.29Finco7.297.290.001500.2870.52025.47.13% 11.408.77FirstCaribbean Bank9.749.740.000.6450.35015.13.59% 5.513.75Focol (S)5.465.460.005400.3660.21014.93.85%1 .001.00Focol Class B Preference1.001.000.000.0000.000N/M0.00% 5.595.00ICD Utilities5.595.590.000.0120.240465.84.29% 10.509.92J.

THE Nike Junior Tour (NJT) International Masters has become more than just a tennis tournament. It has become an experience. This year all the under-12 and under-14 boys and girls who qualify will have a totally new experience. This year the tournament will be bigger than ever before with 30 countries expected to vie for top honours. With the dates now December 8 to 15 the Masters will be played later than usual. The reason for this is that it will fall in the week separating the Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl tournaments. But one thing that will not change is the beauty and charm of the venue. For the fifth time in its 14year history, the NJT International Masters will be hosted at a Club Med venue and this year it will be staged at Club Med Columbus Isle on the Island of San Salvador in The Bahamas. All the players will be able to experience a piece of history because it was on these very beaches that Christopher Columbus landed on the ship called the Santa Maria, on his journey to discover America in the year 1492. For the past two years the tournament has been played on hard courts but this year it will revert to clay. The 30 countries expected to line up are France, Italy, Croatia, Spain, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Hungary, Slovakia, Belgium, Israel, United Kingdom, Russia, Serbia, UAE, Belarus, Morocco, China, Brazil, USA, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, South Africa, Bosnia, Sweden, Slovenia, Ukraine and Turkey. The Nike Junior Tour has now been a breeding ground for young tennis players since 1997 when the concept was introduced by Chris Vermeeren and the first event played at Hilversum in Holland. Since then the NJT International Masters has travelled all over the world and has been hosted in Germany, Spain, South Africa, the Bahamas, France, Italy, the USA and the Dominican Republic. Already players such as current world No 1 Rafael Nadal, Sweden's Robin Soderling, Juan Martin del Potro from Argentina, Czech Thomas Berdych, Israel's Shahar Peer, and Czech Lucie Safarova have all cut their tennis teeth at the Nike Junior Tour. All are household names and it should not be long before others, such as Carlos Boluda (Spain), Tiago Fernandes (Brazil), An-Sophie Mestach (Belgium) and Ajla Tomljanovic (Croatia) join that list. "Nadal-Berdych, Nadal-Soderling, the last two Men's Grand Slam's finals opposed Nike Junior Tour players," said Nike Junior Tour Project Leader, Philippe Weiss. "What a big achievement for our tournament which has become the biggest and the most prestigious tournament for the U12 and U14 categories. But more than a tennis tournament, the NJT is about fun, excitement, human experience, sharing outstanding moments together and no doubt this year again in Bahamas, at Club Med Columbus Isle, we will have an unforgettable edition." Continued Weiss: "We are looking forward to hosting children from all over the world. See you in December." 30 countries expected to participate in Nike Junior Tour By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org THEY could have easily been playing basketball or running an exercise at school. Instead, coach Katrinka Marshall decided to take her physical education classes to Mario's Bowling Lanes. Yes, the grade 1-3 students of Garvin Tynes Primary School have been spending at least one hour each day for the past six weeks at the new family entertainment center on the Tonique Darling Highway where they have been taught how to bowl. Katrinka Marshall, a physical education teacher at Garvin Tynes, said she wanted to expose her students as early as possible to the game, so that they can develop their skills. "The more practice and the more exposure that they get, the better they will get," said Marshall, noting that her principal Mariska Hart is supporting her 100 percent in the programme. The programme, which average between 15-25 students in the two classes each day, got started in September and Marshall said she intend to make it a yearly event because of the tremendous response that she's gotten from both the school and the parents. Odette Carey, the marketing manager at Mario's Bowling Lanes, said it was a pleasure for them to entertain the youngsters. "For the past six weeks, they have been here bowling," Carey said. "They come here every day and they have fun and they enjoy bowling., So we try to make it as fun and exciting for them as possible." While there have been other schools who have popped in from time to time to take in a session or two, Carey said Garvin Tynes is the first that have actually included it into their currriculum. But she noted that because of their initial participation, Mario's Bowling Lanes will become a household name for many more schools in the future. "A lot of schools come here as a field trip, but not too many of them have incorporated it into their physical education programme," Carey pointed out. "So this is the first school that we have had that has taken it seriously. "I encourage all schools to take part. Bowling is a sport that is recognized all around the world. People win scholarships to bowl, so it's a sport that should be taken seriously, especially here at Mario's Bowling." Most of the students that The Tribune got to watch in action were quite thrilled to be wearing their bowling shoes and actually lifting and rolling the balls, which in some cases, were heavier than some of them. "A lot of them have been learning how to hold the ball and they are having a lot of fun doing it," Marshall stressed. "I've designed a quiz for them and they have been going through with it, following up on what they have been taught in the games here at the lanes. "We've had students who have finished their games and have gotten extra frames, so they are doing extremely well," said Marshall, who has seen the best score posted of 126 from Mark Maycock. Although she's seen a low score of about 25, Marshall said they have not been making an issue about it because at the end of the day, she just want to ensure that all of the students fully develop their game. Arthurnell Higgs of Mario's Bowling Lanes said the students have been very receptive. "They were very excited, energetic and love to bowl," Higgs stated. "I didn't have any problems with them. Some had some gutter balls, but a lot of them bowled quite well. It was fun working with them." Javan Johnson, a five-yearold grade two student said he had a "lot of fun. I learn how to bowl." Aleeyah Neymour, a sixyear-old grade two student said she "enjoy rolling the ball. I like to bowl." Next term, Marshall said she intend to take her students on the Bahamas Golf Federation's driving range where they are expected to be given some valuable pointers on how to lay the game of golf. "We want to develop full rounded students here at Garvin Tynes," Marshall declared.Gavin Tynes Primary School students taught to bowl at Marios Bowling LanesBABYING THE BALL Tim Clarke /Tribune staff By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter email@example.com THE Pineapple Air Wildcats are the New Providence Softball Association ladies champions again.

Local church hosts fun-filled event for men and boys By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org FOR the first time, Temple Christian Suns will provide an avenue to display their prowess against its arch rivals in their first Primary Schools Invitational Basketball Tournament. Beginning on Monday with the girls division and continuing on Tuesday with the boys, the Bahamas Gold Trading sponsored tournament will run throughout the week at the Temple Christian School's Gymnasium with both the private and government schools participating. "The sole purpose is to get more inactive with both the private and government schools," said Keno Demeritte, who has coached the Suns to a winning record over the past decade, not just in track and field, but also basketball. "We really don't have that many games to play, except for tournaments, so we decided to put in one of our own so that we can get more games for the kids here at Temple Christian." So far, Demeritte said they have already had eight girls teams signed up and they will play out of two pools, while there are 13 boys will be matched up in three different pools. "It should be a real stiff competition, especially in the boys," Demeritte said. "I'm a little biased, so I would say that I really don't expect that much competition in the girls. "In the last 7-8 years, our girls have only lost about three games so I really don't think that we will have that much competition in the girls. I think it will be a challenge for any team that wants to participate in the tournament." Brandino Brown, manager of sponsors Bahamas Gold Trading said they decided to come on board because of Temple Christian's proximity in the community where their business is located. Plus, he noted that "they have an excellent basketball programme under coach Demeritte for some years. So I decided to help him out with this programme that he is doing for the kids." Brown, who attended the press conference with his wife, Shonell, said their company located on Rosetta Street intend to offer cash incentive prizes for the winning schools and they will also be donating all of the trophies and medals to the various recipients. "We just want to help coach Demeritte to get the school name out there," Brown said. "This is an excellent programme. They have been winning in Freeport, Grand Bahama, but this is the first time that they will get to showcase their talent in their own tournament. "So it's time for the Nassavians to really know about the Temple Suns. They will get a chance to see this school that we are so proud to be affiliated with, perform right here at home." Teams will be vying for trophies for first and second places in both the boys and girls, while individual medals will be presented to the first through third place finishers. There will be also the most outstanding make and female awards presented to the deserving players. The tournament kicks off at 3:30 p.m. on Monday at Temple Christian Academy. Temple Christian hosts first Primary Schools Invitational Basketball Tournament GAME ON: Coach Keno Demeritte (center) of Temple Christian Primary School is flanked by the husband and wife team of Brandino and Shonell Brown as they announced the sponsorship of the primary school basketball tournament that kicks off on Monday at Temple Christian. Johnson suffered another loss for Proper Care Pool. Unlike the previous three games of the series, both teams saved their best offensive attacks for the grand finale as they entertained the fans in the longest game played all season long. Christine Edmunds had a perfect 4-for-4 night with a triple, driving in two runs and scoring three times to pace the way for the Wildcats. Donette Edwards was 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored; Jeanette Hilton was 2-for2 with a double, driving in two mates and scoring as many times and Maryann Fowler went 2-for-3 with two triples, driving in three runs and scoring two times. For the Lady Sharks, Shonell Symonette went 3-for-4, scoring three runs; Riquel Cooper was 2for-4, scoring twice; Thela Johnson was 1-for-3 with a double, scoring three times; Trekia Munroe was 2for-4 with a double, driving in a run and scoring another and Keisha Miller was 2-for-4 with a double, driving in a run and scoring once. While Pineapple Air plated 21 runs, they produced 15 hits and committed six errors, compared to Proper Care Pool's 15 runs on 13 hits with just five errors. After getting shutout in the first inning, the Wildcats responded with their best showing as they rebounded from a 2-0 deficit to explode for 11 runs on seven hits in the second. They extended their lead with three more runs on four hits in the third; four runs on two hits in the fourth and two runs on a hit in the fifth for a commanding 18-8 margin. After coming up with three runs on two hits in both the second and fourth innings, the Lady Sharks added two runs on three hits in the fifth, two runs on four hits in the sixth and three runs on one hit in the seventh. Pineapple Air will now go on to join the Dorin United Hitmen in representing the NPSA in the championships that will feature six men's teams and three ladies' teams in the tournament that will run from Thursday to Sunday. The Hitmen, who was awarded the men's title after the defending champions Commando Security Truckers walked off the field in game one, will join the DRS Jets from Eleuthera, the Home Furniture Turtles from Abaco, the Gemini Cougars from Andros and the L Net Mariners from Grand Bahama. Commando Security, however, have petitioned the courts for an injunction against the NPSA, denying Dorin United to be declared the champions, citing that they should have been allowed to just pay a fine and continue playing, rather than being explelled from the remainder of the series. While their lawyer, Christina Galanis from Lockhart and Co., was able to file the injunction on Thursday, it was reported that a court hearing is set for Thursday, the same day that the BSF is expected to kick off the round robin series. Wildcats FROM page 13 In the last 7-8 years, our girls have only lost about three games so I really dont think that we will have that much competition in the girls. I think it will be a challenge for any team that wants to participate in the tournament. Keno Demeritte

The fact that most of these animals will be euthanized does not give anyone the r ight to mistreat them until they are put to s leep.
