Pigeon Pea residents are served notice to move

Resdients are given six months to vacate private

Ricky Albury holds deeds of possession on approximately five acres of the Key Tract in Central Marsh Harbour. Located immediately
behind businesses on Don MacKay Boulevard, the area has absorbed hundreds of immigrants who have squatted there, some for
more than 40 years. Handing out eviction notices are Ross Thompson III in the blue shirt and Ricky Albury in the beige shirt. They
were accompanied by police officers.

Pigeon Peas residents were given evic-
tion notices in the afternoon of May 17.
The property owner, Ricky Albury, initi-
ated this action subsequent to recently be-
ing granted a Deed of Possession by the
Supreme Court. A similar eviction notice
was issued about 10 years ago by Ricky
Albury, but no residents moved, and there
was no follow-up. The land, approxi-
mately five acres, was given to him by his
grandfather, Mertland Albury.
This present notice requires that the
occupants of land belonging to Ricky Al-
bury in Pigeon Peas vacate by November
6. This gives residents approximately six
months to seek other locations to live.
Prominently assisting in distribut-
ing the notices was Ross Thompson III,
Chairman of the Marsh Harbour Town
Committee, who is seeking remedies for
the Pigeon Peas and Mud settlements.
Both of these are situated in the heart of
Marsh Harbour.
Approximately 100 notices were given
in the hour-long exercise. They were ac-
companied by several uniformed police
officers. Additional notices were distribut-
ed the next afternoon. The eviction notices

Elegant! Exciting! Glamorous! These was Miss Teen Bahamas World 2009-
are just some of the words that can be 2010, Shameka Rolle, and the President
used to describe the grand crowning of of the Miss Teen Bahamas organization,
Miss Teen Abaco and Miss Teen North- Theodore Sealy.

Two Abaco teens were crowned and celebrated

Pageant From Page 1
The program began with a mesmeriz-
ing dance by five Abaco top models and
the two new queens: Dakota Delancy Miss
Teen Abaco and Deante Bain Miss Teen
Northern Abaco.
Mr. Sealy stated that this is the first
time that Abaco will be represented in
the Miss Teen Bahamas pageant and
thankfully, two beauties will represent
the island. Some 30 teens are expected
to participate in the pageant this year
with 10 of them representing Family
Islands. This would be the first year
that so many Family Island representa-
tives will be in the pageant. He told the
queens that the training is intense but at
the end of the entire experience, they
will have developed self and find that
their lives will forever be changed for
the better.
Mr. Sealy told them that being a
queen is not only about beauty, titles,
pageants, make up and ball gowns but
they are now role models for teens.
They must set a good example for other
teen girls in particular. He encouraged
them to select and mentor three young

girls before they travel to Nassau for the
pageant in July. When they go before
the judges, he stated, they will have a
platform that they would have already
started as queens.
Miss Teen Bahamas is the most success-
ful pageant in The Bahamas. In its first
year, the Bahamian queen won a title inter-
nationally and so far, they have won a total
of six international titles. The committee is
looking forward to Shameka winning the
seventh one in June when she travels to
represent The Bahamas oversees.
The pageant, he added, teaches life les-
sons. It is more than external beauty but
inner beauty as well. The participants will
begin vigorous training the first week of
July which will include beauty, etiquette,
self-development, speech and poise. They
will have a tourist day when they will visit
Dolphin Encounters and be given a tour of
the historic forts. They will participate in
an environment campaign by cleaning one
of the local beaches.
Miss Teen Bahamas World stated that it
is an honor to have been invited to share
in the crowning of the two Abaco queens.
She told them that it is a lot of work; but
since Abaco is not short on talent, the la-

dies have the potential to do well. Being
a queen is a huge responsibility. She told
them to be an example to others, be grace-
ful, let their beauty exude from the inside
out and have a good attitude.
Before the queens were crowned, Ab-
aco top models modeled swim wear and
casual wear, and Kashif Burrows sang
two popular songs. He did a fantastic job.
If he continues, he may have a singing
career on the horizon. When the queens
were crowned and received their trophy
and flowers, each of them took their
first walk as queen as their family and
friends cheered them on. At the end of
the crowning, the queens were greeted by
their family and friends.
Monique Burrows, president and direc-
tor of Miss Teen Abaco Pageants, was very
pleased with the event and stated that she
has always been in pageants. She joined
the Miss Teen Bahamas organization to be
the representative for Abaco so that teens
desiring to enter this pageant can enter to
represent Abaco. This pageant is the only
one that the Miss Teen Bahamas organiza-
tion recognizes. Ms. Burrows hold the li-

cense for Miss Teen Abaco and Little Miss
Abaco Pageants which she has held for five
To be eligible to enter Miss Teen Aba-
co, young ladies must be between the ages
of 14-18 and for the younger category,
girls must be 7-13 years of age. This pag-
eant will be held later this year. The next
Miss Teen Abaco Pageant will be held in
May 2011.
A website will come on stream in De-
cember of this year that will have all re-
sources needed for next year's teen pag-
eant. Abaco corporate sponsors are being
sought for both pageants. The clothing
modeled was provided by the models but
the swim suits were donated by Erica Oli-
ver for Erica's Unique Fashions in Marsh
Harbour. The trophies, crowns and flow-
ers were provided by the Miss Teen Baha-
mas organization.
The organizers of this event were Mo-
nique Burrows president, Telia Burrows
vice president, and Kashif Burrows pro-
duction manager.

Scholastic Institute helps

adult earn diplomas

The Abaconian Section A Page 5

By Samantha V. Evans
On May 21st ten men and women re-
ceived their high school diploma and made
history by being the first class to graduate
on Abaco through the Scholastic Institute.
It was clear that these graduates were filled
with pride as they walked down the aisle of
the Church of God in Dundas Town. Their
commitment to their educational pursuits
has paid off as they were now about to re-
ceive their high school diploma.
The valedictorian, Ellen Tilus, received
the President's award, Santana Fox re-
ceived the Salutatorian award, and Darline
Pratt received the Collegiatorian award.
The remaining graduates were Antonio
Wilmore, Berianise Britus, Winde Orelien,
Tiffany Theagene,
Neko Rolle, Erin
Thurston, and Robin-
son Maurancy.
Kendris Hield, Pres-
ident of the Scholastic
Institute, gave the his-
tory of Scholastic Insti-
tute. He feels that this
program provides a
second chance for stu-
dents to receive their
high school diploma,
hence, the motto Im-
proving Lives, Fulfill-
ing Dreams. He issued
a challenge to the grad-
uates that if they have
a desire to further their

Ellen Tilus, who graduated with a 4.0

school 15 years ago before she could ob-

that graduating is a huge honor for her. To-
night, she has accomplished a great dream
and there is more to come in her future.
The keynote address for the evening was
delivered by Leslie Rolle, Senior Educa-

He is elated that these ten men and women
never gave up on learning. He told the

The Editor Says...

Will eviction notices bring action?

An interesting process began late in the
afternoon of May 17 when eviction notices
were distributed to residents throughout the
Pigeon Peas immigrant squatter settlement,
giving them six months notice to vacate the
land. Ricky Albury was given the land by
his grandfather many years ago and recent-
ly was awarded a Deed of Possession by
the court. His land is approximately five
acres. Some residences in that settlement
may be located outside his boundary.
There seemed to be little resentment and
most people given the notice acknowledged
that the land was not theirs. Universally,
they asked, "Where do you want us to go?"
Marsh Harbour's Town Committee Chair-
man, Ross Thompson III, did not have an
answer. He was frank in telling the resi-
dents that something must be done, and he
is hoping that this eviction notice brings
central government into the process.
It is expected that some residents will
relocate to the neighboring 10 to 15-acre
Mud settlement which is government land
and has space to absorb more houses. A
few immigrants who have received perma-
nent status in The Bahamas have bought
lots in Central Pines Estates subdivision. It
is quite likely that some have either bought
or applied for lots in the newly opened sub-
division in Spring City.
However, Pigeon Peas may have 150 or
more residential buildings. Many of these

are configured as duplexes or triplexes.
Additionally, many have exterior doors
with single rooms being rented. How many
families or persons live here is unknown.
Government is conducting a country-wide
census during the month of May and per-
haps will come up with a realistic popu-
lation count for the Pigeon Peas and the
Mud. The 2000 census counted 1500 legal
persons between the two settlements with
no illegal persons found. The point is that
if this eviction notice is successful, a lot
of people will have to relocate somewhere.
There have been many earlier efforts to
prevent the expansion of these two settle-
ments, with the main thrust in the Mud as
that area is less dense and has more room to
accommodate expansion. One of the fires
in Pigeon Peas beside Abaco Hardware
took out 70 houses and displaced over 260
persons. Government did not allow any
rebuilding on that land, and the refugees
were absorbed by friends and family in the
two settlements.
Several years later another fire, this time
in the Mud, claimed over 100 houses, dis-
placing several hundred more people. Again,
it was forbidden to build on the site, and the
community absorbed the displaced persons.
Although the sites of these two fires
have remained vacant, houses have sprung
up in other areas of Pigeon Peas and to an
even greater extent in the Mud which has
more area than the Peas.
After the last major fire in the Mud, the
remaining houses were prominently num-
bered in an effort to identify further ex-
pansion. The resourceful occupants then
expanded their existing numbered houses
with some adding a second storey.
Several years ago local government of-
ficials made a concerted effort to control
this expansion by finding houses under
construction and knocking them down. No
one was displaced as the houses were not
completed to a stage allowing occupancy.
Some were found to be painted and with
curtains in the windows although a closer
look found that there were no floors and
nothing inside. New rooms added to exist-
ing houses were removed when discovered.

This is Pigeon Peas in the center of Marsh Harbour. The buildings in the foreground
are the warehouses of Abaco Hardware. The road on the far left is Crockett Drive. This
property is all part of the Key Tract, originally granted to Nathan Key.

Staff from the Ministry of Works worked
with local government persons to demolish
the buildings. The police were present, but
they were not called on to offer assistance.
An Immigration Officer was usually in the
background but was not overly inquisitive
of the few resident bystanders. It was rare
that anyone acknowledged responsibility
for the building with neighbors professing
that strangers were responsible.
Fifty or more unoccupied houses were
demolished when orders came from central
government to discontinue the operation.
Central government's order did not offer any
solution to the on-going problem of the squat-
ter expansion. Local government authorities
were attempting to curtail further growth.
The Chairman of the Marsh Harbour
Town Committee, Ross Thompson, often
makes a tour of the Pigeon Peas and Mud
areas, frequently with staff from the Min-
istry of Works. On occasions he has ei-
ther ordered or taken steps to have houses
found to be under construction torn down.
He was recently chastised by the Ad-
ministrator and reminded that he must not
exceed his authority. The entire issue of
the Pigeon Peas and Mud settlements begs
clarity. Central government has many
times said that the problem developed lo-
cally and must be solved locally. Yet,
when local government attempts to exert
some authority, it is told to cease. It is
probably true that the authority to make a
meaningful impact is not vested with local
government. But, why then are they con-
stantly told to do something about it?
Similar issues exist in North Abaco
with the Sand Banks community beside the
highway near Treasure Cay and an expand-
ing settlement in the woods on the road
leading to the Norman's Castle farm land.
Local government officials made several
attempts to control expansion. They were
also rebuffed by Nassau authority telling
them to stop their efforts.
The relevant agencies under central gov-
ernment's control seem reluctant to enter
the frey. Agencies that would appear to be
concerned are Environmental Health, Min-
istry of Works, Police, Immigration, BEC,
Water and Sewerage, Social Services and
possibly others.
Proper sewage disposal would be an
Environmental Health concern.
Illegal and improper building con-
struction would fall to the building inspec-
tors of the Ministry of Works.
Businesses operating without being li-
censed are a police concern. Applications
for a business license are often made. But
without providing legal proof of occupancy
of the building, a license cannot be issued.
Immigration should be concerned with
persons there who have not entered the
country legally. Their approach is all or
nothing: either go in with enough armed
manpower to make the headlines or stand
off and close their eyes. Several years ago
Immigration held a registration exercise
for those Haitians and other nationalities

who had submitted citizenship applica-
tions. It was said that the process would
be expedited, but we have not heard of any
further progress.
A few residences in these two settle-
ments have a BEC electric connection.
Most residents there would like electricity;
but to get connected legally, they must pro-
vide proof of ownership for the building.
Water pipes snake through both com-
munities, courtesy of Water and Sewer-
age and possibly neighboring Bahamian
residences. For humanitarian reasons it is
probably acceptable that the water issue
not be pursued.
Many studies have been made on the im-
migrant situation by government agencies
and other groups. Three consistent recom-
mendations are:
Stop the influx of new immigrants
which falls to the Defence Force with their
ships and aircraft.
Expedite the processing of those im-
migrants who qualify for citizenship or
residency. Without documents, they can-
not buy land, open a bank account or take
the steps to move out of the Peas or Mud.
Institute controls to stop the expan-
sion of the squatter settlements. More and
larger houses hold more people, making
tomorrow's problems even larger.
Several action committees have formed
in recent years with participants from the
relevant government agencies and local
government, often including members of
the church community. Although local in-
terest seemed high, there appeared to be
little support from Nassau authorities. None
of these groups is active today. It was gen-
erally recognized that any solutions must
come from the coordinated effort of many
agencies with central government's bless-
ings. No single agency has the all-encom-
passing authority that is required.
So, how does a landowner's eviction
notice alter the landscape? No one is sure,
although the initial publicity rang a lot of
bells in central government. Since the land-
owner now has a document of legal posses-
sion, he is within his rights to demand that
the squatters leave. Perhaps they will move
over to the Mud settlement which is gov-
ernment land which then puts more pres-
sure on central government to deal with the
problems on its land.
Many local government people would
like to be involved in a regular and system-
atic program to limit the expansion of these
communities, tearing down only the houses
and additions that are either new or under
construction without displacing anyone.
Abaco people want to curtail the popula-
tion growth of these illegal communities
but are frustrated that their efforts are con-
tinually thwarted and stopped. Abaco has
the motivation but the authority lies with
government in Nassau.
Somehow, central government and lo-
cal residents must work together to keep a
major problem from becoming even more

were accepted in a matter-of-fact way and
without incident.
Several persons professed to live on
land outside Ricky's boundary and felt they
were therefore exempt from his notice.
More common were the unanswered ques-
tions on where the residents should go.
Ross Thompson's most consistent re-
ply was that this eviction notice may spur
central government and its various depart-
ments to re-examine the issue and assist in
finding solutions well before the Novem-
ber deadline. He did say that residents re-
maining after the November deadline will

be taken to court for further action.
The Pigeon Peas property is acknowl-
edged to be on generation land owned
by the descendants of Nathan Key, who
was originally granted the land in the mid
1800s. Ownership claims have remained
unresolved for many years, but recently
the courts have begun issuing Deeds of
Possession to some claimants.
Questions arose whether residents of the
neighboring Mud settlement were also
issued eviction notices. Mr. Thompson
said no. Those houses are on government
land and are not subject to any action by
Ricky Albury. However, as Chairman of
the Marsh Harbour Town Committee, he is

Ricky Albury is seen explaining the eviction notice that he is dt.\rrbuiung in the Pigeon
Peas immigrant community. The reception by the residents was non-committal.

Beauty Pageant
brings out local talent
By Annabella Marquis
Cliffanique Stuart was a spectacular sight
to behold in a lime green ball gown as she
received the winning trophy at Miss Teen
Abaco: Daughters of Royalty on May 15.
Cliffanique, a 16-year-old Abaco Central
High School student, was initially hesitant
to enter the competition due to the fact that
she was heavier than the other entrants. But
with the conviction and determination she
says was taught to her by her grandfather,
Pastor Clifford Henfield, she entered the
competition thinking "I will win."
The crowned queen displayed impressive

skills in many areas, but particularly orator-
ical, answering on-the-spot questions posed
to her by moderator Shelly Austin with elo-
quence, receiving an uproarious response
from the audience every time she spoke.
When asked at what point a girl becomes
a woman, Cliffanique responded, "There
are old women who cannot be considered
'women' because they are irresponsible.
At the same time, going through puberty
does not make you a woman. In my opin-
ion, spiritual, emotional and intellectual
preparedness is what turns a girl into a

Furniture Plus Holds
Career Expo
By Timothy Roberts
Over 150 people turned out in response
to Furniture Plus's invitation to attend a ca-
reer expo at Abaco Beach Resort on May
17 and 18, in hopes of filling one of the 12
positions available for the opening of the
new furniture store.
During the past six months Furniture

applicants were invited to go through an
interview process which Furniture Plus

Furniture Plus has received more that 700 applications for work for its new store due to
open early in July in Marsh Harbour. The 22,000-square-foot store with 15,000 of show
room space will open adjacent to Maxwell's Supermarket, also due to open in July. The
staff from Furniture Plus in Freeport was here interviewing the applicants to choose 12
who will be trained prior to the store opening. The interviews took place on May 17 and
18 at Abaco Beach Resort.

conducted over the course of two days,
interviewing over 150 people.
Krystnia Lee Darville of Furniture Plus
said the interview process went smoothly
and that they received a good turnout.
They were hopeful that the store would be
open by early summer.
Furniture Plus, established in 1988 in
Nassau by Troy and Tyrone Darville, is a
family-owned business. In 2005 they ex-
panded with the opening of a new store in
Freeport, partnering with Scott Ferguson
in their second location.
Now Furniture Plus is bringing their
store to Abaco offering a 15,000 square
foot show room and offering quality prod-
ucts in furniture, bedding, appliances and
electronics including brand names such as
JVC and Kenmore. They will also be of-
fering zero percent down, in-house financ-
ing, salary deduction options, 72-hour de-
livery and more.
"We're very excited to be bringing this
to Abaco," said Mrs. Darville. "We have
had a lot of positive response to the financ-
ing." The store will cater to both second
homeowners and local residents.
Vendors Showcase
Mother's Day Gifts
By Samantha V. Evans
Mother's Day was celebrated on May
9th and in preparation for this day that
honors mothers, many vendors were show-
casing items made just for mom. Heather
Green is a first time vendor. Since she is
unemployed, decided to give it a try. She
had numerous items for sale at her booth
across from Price Right in Marsh Harbour
including perfume sets, lotions, shawls,
shower gels, Mother's Day cups and

wine. All items were sold mainly in basket
but the shawls and colognes could be pur-
chased separately. She started selling her
items on Thursday May 6th and remained
out there until May 8th. The items ranged
in price from $35 to $70. She can be con-
tacted for other items by calling 556-5181.
Also selling items for Mother's Day was
Nathalie Knowles for Nat's Beauty Sup-
plies. This is the second time out in front
of Price Right selling baskets and jewelry.
She sold Valentine baskets in February.
She got into basket making as a result of
her affiliation with Avon. Since she was
getting items from Avon, she decided to
use them to decorate her baskets. Anyone
who purchased a basket from Nat's would
have a very loaded basket as they were
filled with a lot of goodies including lo-
tions, gels, jewelry, and items from Victo-
ria Secrets as well including butter cream,
splash and gels. She added a few of her
jewelry pieces to the mix as well. Each
basket had a Mother's Day balloon affixed
to it. The baskets ranged in price from $15
to $210.
Finally, Mrs. Sweeting of Moe's Cre-
ations sold mainly handmade items. She was
set up on Forest Drive across from the King-
dom Hall Church. She had items that even
kids could afford to buy for mom. These
included bathroom sets, handkerchiefs, door
hangers, flower sets, cushions and a lot of
home d6cor items. She had baskets with
these items along with teddy bears, DVD's
for children and adults, pillows, table run-
ners and necklaces. She can make items to
compliment anyone's room colors.

By Candace Key
Jarret Park in Hope Town was the site
for the gathering of the adults, children and
their dogs for the Hope Town-based hu-
mane organization Friends of Abaco Ani-
mals' annual Walk-a-dog-a-thon recently.
Many visitors from boats joined the excit-
ed crew. An amazing fact is that the dogs

seem to know it is a major fund raiser for
their benefit, and they were all, big and
small, on their best behaviour!
Exactly at 10 a.m. the group left the park
to walk the mile up and mile back guided
and guarded carefully by several golf carts
laden with water and ready to pick up any
tired two- or four-legged walker. Some
volunteers stayed behind to man the tables
filled with T-shirts, baked goods and baked
goodies for the dogs.
The children scurry around town for
weeks ahead vying to raise the most money
for Friends. Monies collected are used for
the welfare of animals Abaco-wide. This
organization has been in existence for over
25 years and is the oldest animal welfare or-

ing and neutering, but is called upon for all
areas of animal welfare.
President Jane Thompson stated that the
global money crunch has affected its funds
as well, as this group relies solely on dona-
tions. It has been contacted more and more
for rescuing animals

from unfit homes or
no home situations
and is also called
upon to help all over
Abaco. This walk-a-
thon is its major fund
raiser each year.
Prizes for the chil-
dren who collected
the most money were
donated by mem-

most coveted by all

he generously donates

Chief Councillors discuss common problems

By Timothy Roberts
Chief councilors from local govern-
ment districts across Abaco came together
for their first meeting this year of the of
the Abaco Chief Councillors Association
(ACCA) on Wednesday, April 28 with a
view to improve communication between
the councils and support a unified vision
for all of Abaco.
The Local Government Act urges chief
Councillors to meet together for the com-
mon good of their island. Abaco is believed
to be the first island with multiple districts
to form a chief councillor's association.
The Abaco Chief Councillors Associa-
tion first met about a year ago with several
meetings since them. Common issues they
are exploring relate to the following:
Garbage collection methods and trans-
portation to the Central Abaco Landfill
The need for a better solution in dis-
posing of pumped septic tank waste which
is presently dumped into a shallow pond
behind Dundas Town close to the old dump
site and allowed to evaporate.
How to resolve traffic congestion and
to provide island-wide direction signs, and
the need to replace or install more road re-
Establishing an Abaco web site with
individual pages for each of the seven dis-
Reserving and establishing public
beach access zones before development ef-
fectively makes the beaches private.
The need for a middle school as a tran-
sition into high school. Education officials
may be invited to explore this topic.
The possibility of inviting one or
both of the island's Members of Parlia-
ment to address the group and hear of

their concerns.
It was suggested that a method for
funding attendance to these forum meet-
ings be investigated. Attendance may re-
quire a ferry, charter boat or plane ticket
and possibly an overnight stay for some
chief councillors.
The Association, chaired by Jeremy
Sweeting, the chief councilor of the Guana
Cay, Man-O-War and Hope Town District
Council, asked the group of chief council-
ors for suggestions and ideas with the view
to create a more cohesive plan for moving
Preston Roberts, Chief Councilor for
South Abaco District, said that he feels that
too many children are 'slipping through
the cracks' in the junior high section of
He said he has seen kids that were good
in primary school spoiled, and changed in
bad ways, succumbing to the peer pressure
placed on them by 'bad seeds' among the
older high school kids. He suggested that
the government introduce a middle school
to Abaco to assist these kids with the tran-
sition from primary to secondary school.
The other councilors present agreed that
there is a problem and decided that some
sort of proposal should be made. Central
Abaco Administrator, Cephas Cooper,
suggested that the group come up with a
list of needs and concerns and, as a group,
set up a meeting with the Prime Minister to
discuss them.
Mr. Cooper also suggested they consid-
er some signage, such as those used along
freeways in the US, be placed along the S.
C. Bootle and Great Abaco Highways giv-
ing town name and distance information.
He also informed the group that Arthur
Hanna, former deputy prime minister and

governor general, is wanting to hold some
legal aid clinics in Abaco and that it would
be a good idea for all the councils to come
together and benefit from these clinics.
Jeremy then discussed with the group
about having a 'well publicized' public
town meeting in order to hear the needs
and ideas of the people. Cubell Davis,
Chief Councilor of Murphy Town Council,
suggested a call-in program on BCN,
Mr. Cooper suggested doing a monthly
show on BCN, addressing topics, shar-
ing concerns and informing the public of
what is going on as well as being able to
receive input from the public. The group
has agreed to meet again in July.

Administrator Cephas Cooper asked the
councillors to note the Commonwealth Lo-
cal Government Conference being held in
Cardiff, Wales March 15-18, 2011. It is
held every other year in one of the Com-
monwealth countries. He strongly urged
the councillors to ensure that Abaco is
represented at the conference. Information
can be found at www.clgc2011.org
Attending this meeting was Kristin Wil-
liams representing Friends of the Environ-
ment who gave a short presentation on the
goals of the Friend's organization and of-
fered to assist local government in areas of
mutual concern.

opment for the Elbow Cay Club property
and the dump maintenance contract as well
as other matters.
Elbow Cay Club development
After dealing with matters relating to
the local Port Authority and Town Plan-
ning, they reviewed a set of revised plans
for the renovation and expansion of Elbow
Cay Club. The new plan complied with
many of the requested revisions from the
last Council meeting. The number of boat
slips was reduced from 120 to 80. It was
stated that the Fry's Mangrove easement

will be considered and guaranteed to cur-
rent residents.
Victor Apatt, one of the developers,
wrote a letter accompanying the revised
plans stating that their revisions have been
undertaken to be seen as a "desire to be a
good community partner." It was also stat-
ed that no mangrove removal was antici-
pated in the development of the property.
The Council deferred approval in prin-
ciple until a site inspection with the devel-
opers present can be conducted. Concerns
were expressed that the view of property
owners of Fry's Mangrove may be blocked
depending on the angle and size of the
dock, and it was also said that considerable

This is a new design for a development of the Elbow Cay Club property. It incorporates
many changes required by the Hope Town District Council to satisfy the residents of El-
bow Cay. The main objections included the density of the housing and size of the marina
that extended out into the navigable water between Elbow Cay and the Parrot Cays. This
new plan was presented to the Hope Town Council at its meeting on May 20.

dredging may be needed for the harbor and
marina area which may disturb an area
that turtles frequent. A subsequent Town
Meeting was planned after the inspection
to move the decision forward.
Dump maintenance
Three garbage collection and dump
maintenance tenders were reviewed by the
Council. The tenders all detailed collec-
tions processes and fees as well as dump
site sorting and maintenance. The tenders
submitted were all similar in scope; how-
ever, only two gave quotes for the collec-
tion of garbage for private residences.
The Council deliberated over the ten-
ders and came to a unanimous decision to
go with Clay and Christian Wilhoyte's ten-
der which was for $66,300. Council was
reminded by Administrator Cephas Cooper
that the new budget for the upcoming fiscal
year would likely be at least two percent
less than last year's budget. Chief council-
lor Mr. Jeremy Sweeting, said they were
aware of this, however, felt it is a war-
ranted expenditure and felt they could meet
the cost.
They then discussed with Mr. Wil-
hoyte the possibility of lowering his bid to
$64,200, which are the currently allotted
funds for trash pickup in the budget. Mr.
Wilhoyte agreed to this reduction in pay-
ment. Mr. Wilhoyte requested in his ten-
der be awarded at minimum a three-year
contract due to the sizable investment in
equipment. The Council agreed to issue a
contract to April 2011 when a three-year
contract will be issued.
It was suggested that they have a Town

Meeting after they review the charges for
collection of waste from non-residential
sources to convey the details of the contract
and what it will mean for each individual.
Mr. Sweeting said that it was important to
note that he received support from both
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham and the
Minister of the Environment Earl Deveaux
in the Council's move to award a contract
for the dump.
Other business
The Council reviewed detailed plans
for Firefly Sunset Resort, a project that
expands on the Ekali property adding four
cottages and creating a bar and grill. The
Firefly project is being developed by Jim
and Ann Irvin of South Carolina. The de-
tailed plans were inspected and approved.
A letter from the Port Authority in New
Providence was read concerning the devel-
opment of a marina at Lynyard Cay and its
approval by the central government depart-
ment. The Chief Councillor took exception
to the approval, noting that it was not the
first time local government's authority was
bypassed in regards to Lynyard Cay. The
Council, under the advice of Administra-
tor Cooper, decided it would write a let-
ter to the agency to ask if there have been
changes in procedures in bypassing local

Local government assists
with eviction notices
By Canishka Alexander
When Roscoe Thompson decided to
support Ricky Albury in his decision to
evict hundreds of Haitian nationals living
on five acres of property belonging to him
in the Pigeon Peas community, he did not
expect what would happen next.
Mr. Thompson, Chairman of the Marsh
Harbour and Spring City township, ex-
plained that he is only trying to make sure
that the process is carried out according
to Bahamian law and that no one's rights
are violated. While the action has invoked
a type of seesaw reaction, many support
local government's decision because they
believe that the situation with the Haitian
communities should have been addressed
a long time ago. However, some question
where the Haitian migrants will go when
they leave Pigeon Peas.
The issue has snowballed from a local
quandary to one of international notoriety.
On May 19 the L.A. Times picked up the
story from the Associated Press and not
only quoted Roscoe Thompson on this lat-
est incident, but also Jack Thompson, Di-
rector of Immigration, and the Prime Min-
ister the Rt. Hon. Hubert Ingraham.
The article stated that Prime Minister
Ingraham expressed that he "hopes the lo-
cal government will find new homes for
those displaced." However, Mr. Roscoe
Thompson said it is not the job of local
government to find homes for the Haitian

American citizens
renew, apply for
passports on Abaco
By Canishka Alexander
For the first time in the history of Aba-
co, United States citizens were able to re-
new their passports without going directly
to the U.S. Embassy in Nassau. On May 7
the Consul planned a trip to Abaco to of-
fer services with regard to renewals, first
time applications, the replacement of lost
or stolen passports and to document chil-
dren born to U.S. citizens.
It appeared that the information about
the Consul's meeting began with an e-
mail that was sent to the Abaco Chamber
of Commerce. The e-mail was forwarded
to persons who were U.S. citizens or who
have children who are Americans, so that
they were able to benefit from the service.
They were asked to fill out a few personal
questions and send the information to the
e-mail address provided to confirm their
After that was completed, a senior con-
sular assistant e-mailed two documents to
be filled out and accompanied by docu-
ments including birth certificates and
passport copies. The documents had to be
submitted with a money order or certified
cheque to cover the passport and FedEx
All who took part in the service were
quite pleased by how quickly they were
served, and those who missed out are anx-
ious to try the service when it occurs again.
The well mannered Consul representative
said that if they have the kind of response
they experienced that day and have enough
money budgeted to provide the service
again, another trip will be practical.

ted themselves to attaining their goal. He
told them to be persistent in their pursuit
of education. Whatever their passion is, he
encouraged them to do it well.
Mr. Rolle stated that many may be won-
dering why this diploma is so important.
He provided the following statistical infor-
mation: employers ask for the high school
diploma, persons with it can advance on
the job and earn twice as much as those
without it, they can be accepted into col-
lege, the public service requires it, it in-
creases one's self-esteem, increases one's
knowledge and academics and affords one
a better life.
Scholastic Institute is giving many peo-
ple who did not receive a diploma when
they were in school the ability to obtain
their high school diploma later in life. The
diploma program is affiliated with Phil-
lip Roy Academy and is accredited by the
Florida Department of Education. It will
be recognized anywhere around the world

Three groups are active on the island
now two in Central Abaco and one in
the north. The programs in Central Abaco
meet with Beverly Rolle and at Central Ab-
aco Primary School and the one in the north
meets at S.C. Bootle High School. The
program consists of five subjects: Math,
English, Character Education, Social Stud-

and nine months depending on how long it
takes the students to complete the curricu-
lum. The next graduation is scheduled for

House Breaking & Stealing A
house in Treasure Cay was broken into
sometime during the day on May 13. Sto-
len were an Apple I-Phone, a Dell laptop
computer and cash. On May 14 a resident

The Abaconian June 1, 2010

Preparations for two darts

tournaments are underway

that someone had been using his name
and identification for the past three years.
Using this information the individual was
able to obtain a passport and work permit.
Close to 7 p.m. that day an individual liv-
ing in the Mud was arrested when found
with two passports, one being his own and
one being fraudulently obtained.
Dangerous Drugs.- A resident of
The Bight, Moore's Island, was arrested
at dawn on May 21 when police executed
a search warrant and found marijuana in
the house.
Assault A Murphy Town woman
was picked up after work on May 21 by
her boyfriend and driven home. An argu-
ment ensued and on arriving at her home,
her boyfriend got out of the car with her
and slapped her.
Stolen Vessel (Recovered) A
resident of Green Turtle Cay had his 23-
foot boat stolen during the night of May
22. A search the next day found the boat
at the Treasure Cay ferry landing with
minimal damage to the propeller. In mid-
afternoon that same day, two young men of
Green Turtle cay were arrested for stealing
the boat.
Threats of Death A Murphy Town
woman awoke about 4 a.m. on May 23
when a woman she knew began banging on
her door demanding that she unlock it. She
called the police. When the police arrived,
she went outside and found that a tire on
her car was flat. In front of the police, the
assailant threatened to kill the resident and
her baby putting her in fear of her life. The
assailant, a resident of Central Pines, was
arrested, posted a $1,000 bond and is to
appear in court on May 26.

Preparations for the two international
darts tournaments that are to be hosted on
Abaco this summer are well underway and
a schedule of the daily events including en-
tertainment has already been planned.
So far 13 countries are registered to par-
ticipate in the America's Darts Cup and
the Caribbean Darts Cups that are to take
place from the 21st to the 30th of August in
Marsh Harbour. The players are scheduled
to arrive on August 20th and will be treated
to a welcome reception organized by the
Ministry of Tourism at Abaco Towns that
same evening. Many of the players are be-
ing accommodated there during their visit,
one of the many accommodations that are
completely booked up for the event.
The Faith Convention Center will be the
venue for all the darts games which will
start on August 21st with an opening cer-
emony. The America's Cup will be held
over three days with the award ceremony
taking place in the evening of August 23rd.

money on a "one-to-one" basis locals
against visitors- had to be cancelled be-
cause American Airlines is canceling one
of their daily flights to Miami.
Malcom Spicer, President of the Baha-
mas National Darts Federation for the last
21 years and Secretary of the Caribbean
Darts Organization also for the last 21
years, is well placed to head the planning
and organization of the up-coming tourna-
ment. He is looking forward to the event
which will bring entertainment and revenue
to the island as several hundred visitors are
expected. "Everything is under control,"
assured Mr. Spicer, who has been planning
the details of the event with his committees
for the last couple of months.
Visitors will have ample time to visit
towns and patronize local shops and res-
taurants since all the games will finish
around 6:30 p.m. Daily evening activities
are being organized for the players and
their supporters such as parties, kareoke
nights, dances, a pool party and a local
talent show. On August 27th at Goombay
Park a Junkanoo Extravaganza will be put
together by the Ministry of Tourism.
It is certainly an exciting and extraordi-
nary event for Marsh Harbour to be hosting.

Castaway Cay shows off recent improvements

South Abaco Council views improvements done with central gov. approvals

The South Abaco District Council toured Castaway Cay to see the recent changes and developments that have been completed there.
The Council invited government representatives from Marsh Harbour and press to accompany them. 5/i.,'i is part of the group
listening to Guenter Schmid, manager of the cay, second from left, as he explains the work that Disney Cruise Lines has completed
that included improvements to the dock, changes to the traffic flow for the trams and additional amenities for the cruise passengers.
Permission for the improvements was granted by central government without consultation with South Abaco. Chief Councillor Pres-
ton Roberts is seen in the orange shirt facing the camera. Castaway Cay is used by Disney Cruise Lines as a stop for two of its cruise
ships. Passengers enjoy the beach, water activities, fishing excursions and children's slides and toys.

By Timothy Roberts
Members of local government for South
Abaco and various government depart-
ments along with members of the press
were given a tour of Castaway Cay's ex-
pansions on May 20. Led by Chief Coun-
cillor Preston Roberts the group went to
inspect the work and to identify possible
areas that might need to be addressed by
the relevant agencies.
Mr. Roberts wanted the operators of
Castaway Cay, a small island owned by
Disney's Cruise Lines, to become familiar
with the various agencies and to know that
they would be diligent to ensure that ev-
erything operates smoothly and according
to the law.
Guenter Schmid, Director of Operations
at Castaway Cay, conducted the tour, high-
lighting the expansions and improvements
to the island which they undertook one year
ago. He showed the group the improve-
ments made to the dock which included an
expansion to the length to accommodate a
larger ship and the addition of a pumping
station. The cay is presently served two to
three times a week by the Disney Wonder,
a 964-foot, 2400 passenger cruise ship. Be-
ginning next year the new Disney Dream
cruise liner, a 1,115 foot, 4000 passenger
ship, will begin its service to Nassau and

National tournament is

held at Grace Gym

With the opening of Grace Gymnasium at Agape Christian School, Abaco can now host
national basketball and volleyball tournaments. Over the weekend of May 14 and 15
the Bahamas Basketball Federation held its National Chauiipii.-bip there. 5/;.,, are
the Eagles, the girl's basketball team of Agape Christian School, being presented with
T-shirts for their upcoming trip to Freeport to participate in the HOYTE's Tournament.
5ihi with them are Lawrence Hepburn, President of the Bahamas Basketball Federa-
tion; Wayne Adderley, coach for Agape Christian School; Ishmael "Stretch" Morley,
Abaco's Sports, Youth and Culture representative; and Sean Bastian, Secretary of the

The Bahamas Basketball Federation's
National Championship was held on May
14 and 15 at the Grace Gymnasium at
Agape Christian School in Marsh Har-
bour. Since it was a round-robin type of
tournament (where each participating team
plays the others in turn), a total of 14

games took place over those two days.
Men's teams from New Providence,
Eleuthera, Grand Bahama and Abaco
each played three elimination games,
all three won by the Giants from New

Haitian community

celebrates Flag Day

The Haitian community celebrated Flag Day with traditional Haitian customs on May
15 at the Farmers' Marketplace in Marsh Harbour. The evening was filled with music
provided by live band, dance, performances, games, and food. This is the second year
that this Haitian holiday has been celebrated on Abaco. The event was also raising
funds to send for Haitian relief. Red Cross representatives were there for donations.

Castaway Cay will accommodate larger cruise ship

Castaway From Page 1
Castaway Cay.
On the island, improvements were made
including adding restrooms to Scuttle's
Cove (a childcare area) so that children
would not have to leave the area, poten-
tially getting lost in the park. The interac-
tive Stingray Swim area was moved and
made larger.
They updated the tram pavilion that car-
ries guests to various points in the park to
be more efficient and added an information
booth and play area, restroom, merchan-
dise shop and snorkel and bike rental shop.
They added a large slide to the beach area
at Pelican Point, overcoming the tidal is-
sues by having it sit on a barge that moves
up and down with the tide. In this area an
additional restaurant was built along with
food and play areas.
Sixteen cabanas were constructed along

the main beach front as well as four more
at the adult beach area. Guests can rent
these for the day.
Castaway Cay presently employs about
70 people. However, that number will in-
crease to nearly 100 when the cay becomes
more active again, which is estimated to be
early this summer.
John Hedden, Deputy Chairman of the
South Abaco Port Authority, expressed
his dissatisfaction with the lack of courtesy
shown by central government because all of
the work on Castaway Cay was approved
without any communication with the local
government of South Abaco. He was, how-
ever, pleased with the measures taken by
Disney to be environmentally and ecologi-
cally sensitive in their operation on the cay.
Present for the tour were representatives
from Tourism, Police, Civil Aviation,
Works, as well as members of the South
Abaco District Council and other local
government officials.

ie ceunterpece ofj Iel nurour is repiucu j Ife letyig n uuntutI pilmrate snip jrum
the Pirates of the Caribbean films. The island is designed to look like a shipwrecked
community but offers amenities to made everyone comfortable. Cruise passengers name
Castaway Cay as their favorite port of call.

The large water feature with two slides at the beach at Castaway Cay has proved to be
very popular with the children. It floats with the tide so can be used at all tides. It even
boasts four water cannons. It maintains the shipwreck theme.


A new addition at Castaway Cay are 20 cabanas that cruise passengers can rent for the
day. This gives families privacy while still being at the beach.

Bahama and an Abaco high school girls'
team composed of players from Abaco
Central High School and Agape Chris-
tian School. Again the final championship
game took place between the Bommer G
Angels and the Grand Bahama team with a
victory for New Providence 53 to 33.
Five games were played on May 14 with
seven more games and two championship
games played on Saturday.
During an interlude before the start of
the championship finals, a friendly game

By Canishka Alexander
Lawrence Hepburn, president of the
Bahamas Basketball Federation, visited
Abaco early in May to lend support to the
development of the Abaco Basketball As-
sociation headed by Sydney McIntosh.
Mr. Hepburn emphasized that Mr.
McIntosh and his executives are the sole
representatives of the Bahamas Basketball
Federation and that they are the only ones
given the permission to solicit funding to
run a league. Mr. Hepburn's responsibility
is to carry out the mandate of the federation
by making sure that the sport of basket-

took place between the Youth in Action
from Central Abaco and the Treasure Cay
Youth Club. The Youth Club won 30 to
24. By that time the gymnasium had filled
with supporters waiting to witness what
promised to be two exciting games. The
Bommer G Angels kept their lead through-
out that first game, demonstrating their
worth as National Champions with a 20
points lead over their runner up.
The men's championship game unleashed
the feelings of the spectators who cheered
and went wild when a particularly good
move was played. The Grand Bahama men
were always close to take the lead, sepa-
rated by only one point at the beginning of
the fourth quarter. However, the New Prov-
idence Giants could not lose that day. It was
their time to become National Champions,
helped to that result by Mark Hannah, who
was voted MVP for New Providence.
Trophies were handed to each player of
both teams by Sean Bastian, Secretary for
the Bahamas Basketball Federation, and

ball is promoted and developed throughout
the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. He
is responsible for the selection of national
teams and the hosting of national events to
determine the national champions.
Mr. Hepburn said the present admin-
istration opted to take the Round-Robin
Tournament to the various Family Islands.
This year's tournament was named in hon-
our of David Morley, the federation's im-
mediate past president. He is being recog-
nized for his long-standing contribution to
basketball and for serving as president of
the federation for more than 10 years.

Freddy Brown, National Instructor for The
Bahamas. A gold cup honored both MVP's,
Mark Hannah and Shanda Rahming.
A special recognition plaque was given
to Ishmael "Stretch" Morley on behalf of
his brother, David Morley, former Presi-
dent of the Bahamas Basketball Federation,
and to Eustace Penn for his contribution in
promoting basketball on Abaco.
The coaches from both winning teams
were euphoric. Kayla Campbell, assistant

coach for the Bommer G Angels, comment-
ed that her team was runner-up last year and
that the girls had improved their tactics and
their coordination while playing together
during the season. Perry Thompson, head
coach for the Giants, praised his team which
has won 12 championships over the years.
Wosley Construction Company which
has been retained to build the new govern-
ment complex on Abaco, was the sponsor
for the trophies.

Primary school receives sports uniforms

On May 14 the two officials of the Bahamas Basketball Federation, accompanied by Ish-
mael "Stretch" Morley and Wayne Adderley, visited Central Abaco Primary School where
they distributed sports clothes to 35 children. These students had been chosen to par-
ticipate in the Primary Schools National Field & Track Cimmipn"'i,.iqp. because of their
outstanding performances in the Abaco inter-primary schools field and track meet. On
the left is Sean Bastian with the Bahamas Basketball Federation and Jeffrey Victor, PE
coach for Central Abaco Primary. On the right are Ishmael "Stretch" Morley, Abaco's
official with Youth, Sports and Culture; Wayne Adderley, coach for Agape Christian; and
Lawrence Hepburn, President of the Bahamas Basketball Federation.

Association raises funds
for Little League Baseball
By Canishka Alexander
The Abaco Little League Baseball held
its first scrimmage and fund raiser on April
24 at the Murphy Town Park. It was well
attended with players visiting from North
Abaco to compete against the team from
Central Abaco. Eventually, two teams will
be formed, made up of players ages 10-
12 to represent Abaco at the Little League
Baseball Tournament to be held in Freeport
over the Labour Day weekend in June.
Coaches Nigel Bootle and Jonathan
Knowles were especially pleased with their
players' performance on the field. North
Abaco won two games while Central Aba-

co won one game. Although his team won
overall, Coash Bootle would like to see
the boys become more active in the sport.
"My goal is to get the little boys in North
Abaco real active in it because when it was
my time, a lot of my friends and people in
North Abaco helped me. It is now my time
to give that support back to them, so my
goal is to see that they stay active in com-
munity things," he said.
Coach Knowles stated the importance
of players learning what a "real" game
would be like and realize the importance of
practice. He added that more coaches were
needed to help coach the players. "That's
the biggest thing right now because we
are coaching everyone, and there are only
three of us out here all the time. It's hard

The outstanding track team from Moore's Island competed at the Penn Relays and did
very well, coming in 10th of 293 teams. Si,/wi are Laron Hield, Antoin Davis, Trevon
Greene, Peron Davis and Elroy McBride. Their coach, Pastor Anthony Williams, ac-
companied them to Pennsylvania.

to really coach all those kids and all those
teams with three people. We are trying to
get some more practices in at least two
days a week in the afternoons to try to get
them up to speed.
More parental support is needed, along
with volunteers from the community, to as-
sist with practice. Assistance will be needed
particularly when the team travels to Grand
Bahama during the Labour Day weekend.
Moore's Island relay
team blazes the track
By Canishka Alexander
The under 17 boys 4 x 100 relay team
from Moore's Island All-Age School put
on a show-stopping performance at the
Penn Relays in April.
Previously, the team had competed at the
Bahamas Association of Athletic Associa-
tion and Scotiabank's High School National
Track and Field Championships held in
Nassau. Their time in Nassau was 42.91.
Then the junior team, comprised of
Elroy McBride, Laron Hield, Trevon
Greene, Antoin Davis and Peron Davis,
traveled to Pennsylvania to compete. They

were accompanied by Pastor Anthony Wil-
liams, coach of the Panther's Track Club.
Wasting no time, they shattered their
high school national time at the Penn Re-
lays when they finished second in their
heat in a time of 42.67 to earn the 10th
spot out of 293 teams.
They jokingly pointed out that the teams
represented were more than the number of
students enrolled at their school.
However, when they consider the chal-
lenges they face with inadequate training
facilities and lack of funding to attend
track and field events, everyone becomes
serious. They said it is hard for them to put
all that they can into their training because
they have to watch out for potholes and
uneven spots on the track. And to make
matters worse, Elroy sprained his ankle
while running on the grass track.
They appealed to the government and
affluent persons in the community to im-
prove their facilities and to fund their trips
because most of them are looking to be-
come professional athletes who will go on

Progress Night at
Abaco Central High
By Mirella Santillo
On May 18th members of the admin-
istrative staff, Principal Vanessa James,
Vice-Principal Kevin Hepburn and Senior
Assistant Vincent Coakley, along with
teachers of Abaco Central High School
held a "progress night" meeting for the
tenth and eleven grade students and their
parents. More than 100 persons attended
the meeting. Ms. James was pleased with
the turnout although she had been hoping

for more parental participation.
The teachers met with parents in their
classrooms to discuss the academic prog-
ress of their children and to report miss-
ing assignment or grades. The aim was to
prepare the students for the upcoming final
examinations by giving them an update on

and composed while delivering her speech,
Jennisan simply said that it came from the
heart and that it feels good to be able to
share what she felt with other people.
She said the students she competed
against all prepared excellent speeches, but
only nine spots were available. She said she
was fortunate to be among the nine chosen.
Unfortunately for Jennisan, she lost a
close friend last year, so she knows the
impact a traffic fatality has on one's life.
However, she is thankful for the support
and confidence that her friends and school-
mates have for her as they encouraged her

each step of the way.
Principal Jim Richard also recognized
the student of the month for April in the
lower school, Tristan Albury, an eighth
grader; Martysta Turnquest was the stu-
dent of the month for the upper school. She
is in the 11th grade.
Summer school and
camp will be offered
The Abaco Foundation's Annual Sum-
mer School and Camp will be held on Aba-
co on July 4 July 11. The purpose of the
camp is to provide young people with an
interest in Bahamian culture, with particu-
lar emphasis on music and dance:

an opportunity to interact with other
young persons and skilled individuals
an experience which will foster the
development of their skills
a greater appreciation of the cultural
expressions of the Bahamas
Activities will include devotions, music
instruction (practical and theory), dance,
recreational activities and public perfor-
mance by the combined bands and dance

Students learn
about animal care
By Jennifer Zehler
Percy Grant, the Education Officer of
the Bahamas Humane Society in Nassau,
visited Agape Christian School, Central
Abaco Primary and Long Bay School on
May 18th to talk to students and staff about
the importance of animal welfare and pet
care. He reminded the students that God
created all the animals and that, because
He loves them, He wants everybody to
look after them properly. This means car-
ing for them and treating them well with
kindness and respect.
Mr Grant outlined the basic ways in

which we need to care for our animals.
Every pet needs a nourishing meal and
fresh water every day together with a com-
fortable place to sleep sheltered from the
sun and rain.
Pets should be able to move around
unchained in a safe environment.
Animals experience fear, especially
from loud noises, fireworks, gun shots and
thunderstorms so pets should be kept in a
safe place at these times, preferably inside
the house.
Most importantly, owners need to spay
and neuter their pets to combat the stray
animal problems.
Mr. Grant talked about sickness, and
how animals have the very same needs as
we do. When they are sick, they need to
see a veterinarian.
Finally, Mr. Grant told the students that
being cruel to animals is against the law
and that the police would prosecute any-
body who deliberately mistreated an ani-
Students in all three schools offered sen-
sible comments at the end of these informa-
tive talks.

KFC awards Agape
students with laptops
By Timothy Roberts
Marcus Bethel, owner of Abaco's Ken-
tucky Fried Chicken, presented two stu-
dents of Agape Christian School with new
laptop computers on May 14 for placing
first in the school's science fair.
Grade 4's Ebony Hanna and Nikita Un-

hjem are the proud new owners of the com-
puters and the girls were delighted with the
rewards for their hard work which was
displayed at Friends of the Environment's
Earth Day Science Fair.
Mr. Bethel asked the kindergarten to
grade 6 students present if they used com-
puters. Just about all raised their hands. He
got a similar response when he asked how
many used Facebook (a social network-
ing website). When he asked if they used
the computer to play games, fewer raised
their hands. When he asked if they used
the computer to help them with their school
work, even fewer raised their hands.

Two girls are very happy with their Compaq laptop computers given them by Kentucky
Fried Chicken. Their science project placed first in Agape Christian School's science
fair. Marcus Bethel, owner of KFC, presented the computers at a school assembly of the
primary grades. The two fourth graders are Nikita Unhjem, left, and Ebony Hanna, right.

He stressed to the students the impor-
tance of education, saying it is more impor-
tant than Facebooking, gaming or chatting
online. He stated it is equally important to
find time to play outdoors as well.
Mr. Bethel, through KFC, has been
"donating back to the schools" through a
series of essay competitions that have al-
ready been completed at Forest Heights
Academy and St. Francis de Sales School,
donating laptops to winners of those com-
petitions as well.
Mr. Bethel wants to encourage the chil-
dren in their education, saying that it is
important for them all to grow up to be re-
sponsible contributing members of society.
He intends to continue these competitions
in other schools.
St. Francis offers
BJC Classes
By Samantha V. Evans
During April classes began for students
who are due to sit the Social Studies Baha-
mas Junior Certificate of Education exam
in May. History, Geography and Social
Studies teacher, Mr. Cecil Simon, was the
instructor for the classes which were held
on Tuesday and sometimes Wednesdays at
St. Francis de Sales School. Even though
the classes were primarily for the students
at this school, he graciously allowed stu-
dents from other schools to attend.
To ensure that the students were pre-
pared, he further facilitated them as they
sat pass papers and improved in various ar-
eas such as mapping and grids. He further
assisted the students with organizing their
information so that they can best answer
the many questions that are present on this
test. As the students took mock exams dur-

ing the early weeks of May, these classes
proved beneficial as two of the students
stated that the very areas they focused on
and found challenging were on their exams
and they were able to ace the questions.
Teachers Appreciation
Week is observed
By Mirella Santillo
Teacher Appreciation Week at Abaco
Central High School gave the students the
opportunity to show the teachers their ap-
preciation for the hard work and dedication
they had shown since the beginning of the
school year.
On Monday of that week the teachers
were invited to dig in a "grab box" filled
with snacks. On Tuesday they received
pastries for breakfast. Wednesday is usu-
ally well-ness day so they were given per-
sonal sanitizers and fruit. Thursday was
reserved for encouragement kits, mostly
comprised of something to eat or use. A
special treat that was enjoyed by many of
the staff was a few minutes of massage,
performed by employees of the Restora-
tion Spa who stayed at the school for three
hours. Approximately 30 teachers took ad-
vantage of that opportunity to relax.
The week built up to a Special Assembly
that was held on Friday. It was conducted
by students who handed out gifts, sang,
played music, read poetry and performed
skits for the benefit of the teachers and
the administration. Dr. Lenora Black and
Principal Vanessa James brought remarks.
The assembly ended with an open micro-
phone session during which students spoke

Freeport Urban Renewal

staff visits Abaco

By Canishka Alexander
A number of representatives from the
Urban Renewal Senior Arts and Craft Pro-
gram of Eight Mile Rock planned a trip to
Abaco, and on May 20 they finally took a
short boat ride over from Grand Bahama to
Crown Haven.
Leading the group was Kathleen Grant,
manager of the Eight Mile Rock Urban
Renewal Centre. Because they were vis-
iting for only one day, the group took a
tour around the island taking in as much
as possible. Travelling with the group was
Ellamae Francis, a housewife and straw
vendor, who wore a lovely broad-brimmed

School From Page 10
to their teachers. The event ended with a
luncheon for the teachers, compliment of
the PTA.
Senior Assistant Vincent Coakley played
a large role in helping the students practice
for the assembly. Their performance im-
pressed Ms. James, who commented that
she was proud of the program they pro-

hat she had created. Others in the group
also wore some of her signature creations.
They brought a photo album with them
which featured memorable occasions like
the senior luncheon and other activities
they had participated in and included more
photos of their art and crafts.
Ms. Francis enjoyed her short stay on
Abaco, and the trip reinforced her love for
The Bahamas. Leonard Curry of North
Abaco was also excited about the trip,
which he had helped to organize.
The Urban Renewal Program has been
quite instrumental in Grand Bahama in
providing senior citizens with skills that
have adequately set them on the road to
becoming more financially independent.

has been poor response for upscale real es-

a spa. He is now holding discussions with
several Far East resort chains that wish to
expand into the Caribbean. Clientele and

ing facilities and fence. Administrator Ce-

phas Cooper suggested checking with the
Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture to
see if that department had any extra funds
available to assist with the park repairs.
Councillor Roscoe Thompson III men-
tioned that there were three new houses
recently built in the Mud and two other
buildings. He said he would go to Mr.
John Schaefer at the Ministry of Works to
get the buildings taken down.
Mr. Cooper interjected that the Coun-
cillors should be careful to not exceed the
limits of their authority, saying that the
relevant authorities and channels need to
be used in order to carry out such a duty.
Mr. Thompson acknowledged Mr. Coo-
per's statement and said it was not his in-
tention to overstep his authority and fully
intended to comply with the legal proce-
dure for carrying out the removal of ille-
gal buildings. He stated further that such
process should only be given to those who
build legally. He was adamant that the area
must not continue to expand with new or
enlarged houses.
Local government regularly receives
requests for building permits and shop li-
censes in that area. However, since the en-
tire area is government land and the occu-
pants are all squatting without any official
recognition, permits and licenses cannot be
Cay Mills, Chief Councillor of the Dun-
das Town Council, stated that, because
Administrator Cooper has been signing
bills without the Chief Councillor's knowl-
edge or authority, and because he believes
Mr. Cooper has done things that cause di-
vision among the Councillors, there be a
vote of no confidence against him. He said,
"Perhaps Mr. Cooper is not ready to face
the challenges of Abaco."

Deputy Councillor for the Dundas Town
Committee, Faron Newbold, responded to
Mr. Mills saying that the Dundas Town
Committee has reached out to Mr. Mills
on several occasions and he still refuses to
work with the Committee. Mr. Newbold
concluded that the problem did not lie with
Administrator Cooper, but with Mr. Mills
sticking to his word.
Chief Councillor Davis said that he and
others from the Murphy Town Committee
had tried to encourage Mr. Mills to return
to the Committee and resolve their issues,
and said further that the Committee and
Mr. Mills needed to sort out their differ-
Mr. Cooper said, "I will not be manipu-
lated by the chairman (Mills) to do his bid-
ding," adding that he believed the problem
between Mr. Mills and himself is because
of this. He stated further that if the Chair-
man is unable to or refuses to carry out his
duty, then the Deputy will carry out the
duties of the Chairman. Mr. Cooper said
he never acted out of personal interest but
solely on the will of the Committee.
Addressing an issue concerning potholes
at the ferry dock and the airport brought up
by Mr. Mills, a motion was made to have
Mr. Davis take Mr. Schaefer to both loca-
tions to see the seriousness of the problem
to get some action on repairing them.
Mr. Thompson discussed further that
more initiative needs to be taken to deal
with the Mud and Pigeon Pea areas and
said that he wanted to get roads pushed
through the area (where right-of-ways al-
ready exist) to grant better access to au-
thorities and also to number residences in

Town Planning, Central Abaco 5 May
During the May 5 meeting of the Town
Planning Board an application was re-
viewed submitted by Commonwealth Bank
to extend its existing facilities in Marsh
Harbour with a $1.8 million expansion and
renovation program.
There were also extensive discussions
centered on a concrete floor that had been
poured at the back service entrance of Aba-
co Groceries. The cement had been poured
while a building permit was being applied
for. Consequently, the building inspectors
were not aware of the work and the steel
in the floor had not been inspected as re-
quired. A letter will be written requiring
the concrete in the corner be removed to

expose the steel for inspection.
An application for expanding the build-
ing of Abaco Groceries on the western end
has been submitted.
Licensing, Central Abaco 6 May
The Licensing Committee discussed
routine business smoothly until the mem-
bers got to an application for a temporary
license requested by a Haitian group want-
ing to hold a Haitian Flag Day to raise
funds for earthquake relief in Haiti.
Questions arose about the protocol of
celebrating and raising the Haitian flag at
a public gathering to which Administrator
Cephas Cooper pointed out that a week
earlier the American flag and National An-
them were featured along with the Bahami-
an flag and National Anthem at the Island
Roots Festival in Green Turtle Cay. The
Prime Minister was in attendance at the
event and the flags were raised by mem-
bers of the Royal Bahamas Defense Force.
After much discussion, it was agreed
that Chairman Sonith Lockhart and Deputy
Chairman Doug Evans will meet with the
organizers to see what security measures
can be put in place over concerns related to
liquor sales. Since funds are intended for
Haitian relief, it was suggested that Red
Cross staff be invited to participate.
It was generally agreed that the event
can take place with some restrictions pos-
sible on the sale of liquor and the time for
the music to cease.

Marsh Harbour Town Comm. 12 May
By Timothy Roberts
During the meeting there was much
concern and discussion centering on the
upcoming Haitian Flag Day celebration
which will be held at the Farmers' Mar-
ketplace on May 15. A few members took
exception to the fact that a Haitian flag was
being raised in The Bahamas and were fur-
ther troubled to learn that a march is also
It was pointed out, however, by the Ad-
ministrator Cephas Cooper that the Ameri-
can flag was raised by a Royal Bahamas
Defense Force officer and the American
national anthem sung in the presence of the
Prime Minister at the opening ceremonies
of the Island Roots Festival in Green Turtle
Cay just over a week ago. He said that to
refuse them the right to celebrate their her-
itage would be a form of oppression with
which the Committee members generally
Chairman Roscoe Thompson III, while
agreeing with Mr. Cooper, said that he
would not show his support for their cel-
ebration, and other committee members

At the meeting Ricky Albury, owner of
property in the area of Pigeon Peas, said
he is giving six months' eviction notice to
Haitians that are squatting on his land. He
now has been granted a Deed of Posses-
sion. This appears to be a private matter
between Mr. Albury and the residents.
The Committee offered its support and the
Chairman offered to assist Mr. Albury in
distributing the notices.
At the beginning of the meeting, a pre-
sentation was made by Don Wood concern-
ing the making of garbage bins that look
like shark heads that would be placed at the
airport and ferry dock.
The Committee discussed the need for a
replacement on the Town Planning Board
because Marcus Bethel is unable to contin-
ue serving as the chairman. A motion for
Al Key to replace Mr. Bethel was made by
Lowell Albury, which was seconded.
Committee members expressed frustra-
tion on the lack of re-paving roads and felt
that, with budget cuts in the coming fiscal
year, not much will be done.

International Grandmaster donates Coach gets full scholarship for

chess equipment to students

Abaco basketball player

By Canishka Alexander
Chess Grandmaster David Norwood vis-
ited with the students of the Abaco Chess
Club on May 8 to play a few rounds of
chess and give advice. They soon realized
that he was donating 20 chess sets, two
competition game clocks and educational
books on chess to the club.
Anthony Gibson and Hatchie Robinson,
who formed the club, were just as thank-
ful as the students. But that is not all.
Mr. Norwood has already made plans to
do demonstrations with them and assist in
other areas.
He is passionate about the game. He has
been playing chess since he was six and
earned the title of international grandmas-
ter at the age of 20. He was required to
compete at the top level in international
competitions on several occasions before
the title of Grandmaster was bestowed.
Not only has he travelled to every conti-
nent in the world, Mr. Norwood said chess

also helped him improve his learning abili-
ties especially when he was in school and
then again when he began his own busi-
ness. He now owns a second home on El-
bow Cay
The students are performing well.
"They know the basics, and they know
the strategy," he said. "The thing about
chess, though, is that no matter how much
you think you know, there's a lot more to
Mr. Gibson and Mr. Robinson have
enjoyed playing chess for more than 20
years. They decided to form the club so
they could transfer their knowledge of the
game to the younger children. Mr. Rob-
inson would like to see chess added to the
school curriculum because it will improve
the youth and keep them focused. He is
looking forward to the day when they can
take a team to Nassau to compete against
the team there and bring the winning title

Kevin Altidor, second from right, has received a full basketball scholarship to Roane
State Community College in Tennessee thanks to the efforts of Coach Kevin "KJ" John-
son, third from right. Coach Johnson from Nassau saw Kevin's talent when he attended
a Nassau high school and worked to secure a scholarship that he presented to Kevin.

Coach Kevin 'KJ' Johnson is a man of
his word. Just ask Kevin Altidor, a expe-
rienced basketball player, a player that the
Nassau coach assisted with receiving a full
basketball scholarship to Roane State Com-
munity College located in Tennessee.
Dr. Lenora Black, district superinten-
dent, said Coach Kevin "KJ" Johnson has
been instrumental in identifying reputable
colleges that offer scholarships to students
from both private and public schools.
Coach Johnson was impressed not only
by the basketball skills that Kevin pos-
sesses, but more so, by his character. Ish-
mael "Stretch" Morley readily agreed with
Johnson's assessment of the 19-year-old,
whom he credits with keeping his Youth in

Action basketball team afloat.
Kevin repeatedly thanked Coach John-
son as well as his parents, Josue and Mo-
nique Altidor, who have stood by him
even through the difficult times. He re-
called how Coach Johnson promised that
he would assist him, and how he came
through on his word restoring hope in the
young man's life.
Kevin attended Abaco Central High un-
til 2008, then transferred to C.C. Sweeting
School in Nassau to graduate in June 2009.
Dr. Black reminded Altidor that he is a
leader and a role model and must influence
others to do what is right. She added that
she will be following him and making note
of his achievements, which everyone pres-
ent expected to be many.

Discovery Club
members were awarded
By Canishka Alexander
In 1995 the Bahamas National Trust
formed an after school program called the
Discovery Club. The club lay dormant
for some time until representatives from
Friends of the Environment approached
BNT to begin the program on Abaco.
A pilot program was launched on Abaco
in January of 2008 and has been successful
ever since. To date 60 students are enrolled
in the Discovery Club, and it is offered in
three communities on Abaco. The program
divides the students into two groups based
on ages. The Explorers are comprised of
students ages seven to nine, and the Guard-

ians are the 10 and 13-year-olds.
Kristin Williams, Friends Executive Di-
rector, said that the Discovery Club teach-
es more than environmental education. The
program builds character and focuses on
fundamental values like respect and re-
On May 12 Friends organized a presenta-
tion for the students and distributed numerous
badges and sashes. Mrs. Williams said the stu-
dents are required to attend 60 percent of the
club's meetings, recite the pledge, pay dues
and volunteer before earning their badges.
The children effortlessly met the re-
quirements, and many were rewarded for
perfect attendance. During the Spring 2010
session, the weather and endangered spe-
cies badges could also be earned.

Receiving recognition for the Explor-
ers in the Central Abaco club were Jovan
Bailey, Taryn Carroll, Leota Davis, Ta-
lia Davis, Jazper Dawkins, Ebany Hanna,
Caelan Sims and Gabriel Wong. Addi-
tionally, Talia, Leota and Caelan earned
weather badges while Taryn received the
endangered species and weather badges.
As for the Guardians, that group was
comprised of Aurora Aitken, Eban Hanna,
Dre Hepburn, Donovan Hepburn, Dashane
Knowles, Scott Lightbourn, Ethan May-
cock and Jonathan Maycock.
Junior Achievers'
Busy Weekend
By Mirella Santillo
On May 12th students of the Junior
Achievers program sponsored by First
Caribbean Bank, Creative Achievers Soar
Higher, (CASH) fulfilled their commu-
nity service assignment by visiting elders
in Dundas Town and Murphy Town, tak-
ing gifts of poems, prayers and food. Ac-
companied by advisors Guanyett Curry,
Charlotte Collins and Pastor Ballou, they
took fruit baskets to Madeleine Williams

and Emily Burrows in Dundas Town and
George McKenzie in Murphy Town.
The community service was only the be-
ginning of a week of JA functions that was
to keep the young achievers busy until the
end of that week. On May 14th two JA
groups participated in a Step Show held at
the Anglican Parish Hall, and the follow-
ing day four groups held a Trade Fair on
the grounds of the Lowe's Pharmacy.
Step Show
Two members of the CASH group
raised the cheers of an audience composed
mostly of youth, advisors and a couple of
parents with a Step Show titled Cash Flow.
Two girls, Amy Mackey and Ashley Bur-
rows, made their appearance on the stage
kneeling on the floor going through a bag
full of money. It seemed to have been sto-
len as when sirens were heard, the girls ran
and came back to the stage only after the
threat was over. They went on with their
show, stepping and moving in synchronisa-
tion, leaving the bag on the ground. Their
coordination was perfect and their move-

ments innovative. The audience, already
enthralled, went ballistic when Amy and
Ashley grabbed handfuls of dollar notes
(false, of course) out the bag and threw
them to the spectators who rushed to get
their share of the booty.
Five members of the Abaco Beach Re-
sort also received their share of apprecia-
tion for the performance they put together.
Four girls and one boy rushed to the stage
and started moving to various music beats.
Their show, however, did not compare
to the first one, and the judges, Shamika
White and Shawn Curry, gave the first
place to the CASH group.
Trade Fair
BEC, First Caribbean Bank, BTC and
Abaco Beach Hotel Resort sponsored the
four groups that participated in the Trade



Fair on May 15th. under tents uecorated
with the banners that the students had
created for their group, they displayed
the products that they had manufactured
through their membership year, such as
candies, jewelry items, T-shirts, candle
holders, wreaths, prayer cards, pins and
fresh baked goods.
A patron could also try his/her luck at
the pick-a-prize board. The Abaco Beach
Resort had the best selection of prizes such
as CD cases, small pocket size checkers
and tick-tac-toe boards, document carriers
and more, most of them worth more than
the dollar required to play.
The banners which were being judged
that day were colorful and creative.
The CASH group took advantage of that
occasion to hand Sarone Kennedy, repre-
sentative of the local Red Cross office, a
check for $150 that they had collected for
the Haitian relief fund.

Raise the Roof Reggae Concert

By Samantha V. Evans
New Life Productions had a very suc-
cessful Raise the Roof Gospel Explosion on
May 7th at Change Ministries Internation-
al. Five gospel artists, Mr. Lynx, Monty
G, Rubin Heights, Lyrically Blessed, and
the show stopper Stitchie were on Abaco to
take part in this concert.
All of the artists have their own inter-
ests and passions but it is at concerts like
this that they band together. They are into
exposing youth to friendship, ministry and
true qualities that matter in life. Hence, the
purpose of the concert was to attract youth

to the things of God. When they embrace
the things of God, they will see the positive
ways their lives will be impacted.
These young men are a small fraction of
those who make their living traveling the
world singing for God. Mr. Lynx stated
that they are prepared to travel anywhere to
sing, especially since there are still countries
where people have not heard about God.
At the concert youth from churches
across Abaco were in attendance. The mu-
sic was wonderful and powerful. Many
of the youth sang along to their favorite

During the late afternoon of May 21st
a young lady of 24 years walked into the
Auskell Medical Clinic complaining of
pains in her abdomen. Several hours later
this very surprised young lady walked out
cradling her newborn daughter in her arms.
This baby girl was the first baby ever to be
born at the Auskell Clinic.
When the patient arrived, she stated that
she had been experiencing severe abdomi-
nal pains for the past three days. Although
she said that she was not pregnant, Dr.
George Charite stated that, upon examina-
tion of her abdomen, he immediately felt a
baby. "These things happen sometimes,"
he said.
On further examination Dr. Charite
found that the baby's head could already
be seen. Dr. Charite prepared for immedi-
ate delivery and within an hour and a half,
at 7:18 p.m., a full term baby was born
weighing in at five pounds seven and a half
ounces. Angie Collie and other support
staff were on hand to assist.
The young mother was extremely sur-
prised as she had entered the clinic without
any thought that she may be pregnant. She

was, howev-
er, delighted
at giving
birth to her
first child.
Since it was
a complete
surprise and
this was her
first child, This is the first baby to be
she had no born at Auskell Medical
baby clothes Clinic. The birth took place

plies. The on May 21.
clinic donated a starter kit containing baby
clothes, bottles, milk and pampers which
they had on hand.
"First deliveries can sometimes be dif-
ficult but this was not a difficult delivery,
and there were no complications. The baby
was given the medications it needed after
delivery, and mother and child were moni-
tored for the next four hours. Everything
was found to be okay. After being hydrated
with fluids and being given antibiotics, the
mother was able to leave the clinic on foot
with her child," stated Dr. Charite.
The mother returned to the clinic the fol-

lowing morning with her baby and both she
and the infant were examined and found to
be fine. A pediatrician was at the Auskell
Clinic that day so he also was able to ex-
amine the child. "Under normal circum-
stances, especially for a first time baby,
we like to monitor the patient so that we
can consider the risks as sometimes there
can be complications," stated Dr. Charite.
The young lady was very excited to
have become a mother and was thrilled
with her baby. She was very appreciative
of the service she received at the Auskell
Clinic and continually thanked the staff.
What a surprise her family and friends
must have had when she returned home
with her baby in her arms. The staff of
Auskell was also excited to have partici-
pated in their first delivery at the clinic.

A very special day for Auskell Medical Clinic

to represent The Bahamas. They also have
a goal of representing their country in the
4 x 100 and the 4 x 400 relay events, and
return home with a medal next year.
Despite their hardships, however, the
boys are taking everything in stride. They
acknowledged the assistance of numer-
ous persons who helped them with raising
money and purchasing their uniforms to at-
tend the Penn Relays.
Coach Williams, who is perhaps one
of their greatest fans, was proud of them
when they placed second in their heat. "I
said thank God for second. I told them this
year you have exceeded my expectations,
but next year I want you to shock me."
Coach Williams also congratulated the
girls relay team on their outstanding per-
formance at the nationals.

Carlos Reid was the
speaker at PULSE 2010
By Samantha V. Evans
PULSE, an annual youth activity of the
Church of God in Dundas Town under the
leadership of Bishop Anthony Campbell, is
a time when young people come together
to worship and praise God through song,
dance, drama and spoken word. PULSE
was held April 29 to May 2nd at which
time the group celebrated with Mission
Baltimore from Maryland and Carlos Reid,
a youth leader from the Hope Center in
Carlos Reid, a born again Christian
since 1988, was keynote speaker for two
nights. He spoke of his history with drug
dealing, drug abuse and former gang mem-
bership as well as his search for love in "all
the wrong places." He implored the youth
to learn from the mistakes of him and oth-
ers. He theorized that the youth should
conduct a life that will positively affect
the world rather than have the world infect
them a life that makes a difference rather
than represents ignorance and stupidity. He
encouraged the group to get to know the

God he knows, and their lives will begin to
change for the better as well.
At the end of the service dozens of youth
accepted the altar call and decided to make
a new start in Christ.
A talent night was held at the church
at which time many church groups per-
formed. Performing on the program over
the four days were Akeem Adderley, Ab-
aco Youth Ministries, Church of God Sol-
diers, Little Pearls, and Erica Colebrooke.
Mr. Lynx and Rubin Heights
Visit Central Abaco Primary
By Samantha V. Evans
On May 7th Mr. Lynx and Rubin
Heights, two reggae gospel entertainers,
visited Central Abaco Primary School at
which the entire student body got a taste
of talent that God has blessed these young
men with.
Rubin Heights told the students that it is
important that they make good decisions in
life as that will affect their entire future. They
should be good listeners as when they listen
well they are able to learn a lot of things.
Both men told the kids about themselves.
Andrew Cartwright, aka Mr. Lynx, is
from Grand Bahama and has been sing-

ing for 20 years. He now lives in Nassau
where he has his own music label and is
helping young artists break into the mu-
sic industry. Even though all of the art-
ists work together and support each other,
they all have their own private business
going on. All of them had a chance in the
music industry, but because they wanted
to make a difference and positively impact
the youth, they decided to sing for Christ.
Rubin Mader, aka Rubin Heights, start-
ed of singing secular music but since he
wanted his life to make a difference de-
cided to sing for Christ. He has been sing-
ing for 10 years now. According to Rubin
Heights, they instill knowledge and the
word of God in the heart of youth through
their songs. Everything they do is about
changing lives.

Principal Lyn Major. The team rotated
days and worked between the hours of 9
a.m. and 12 noon.
The group visited the Mudd and Peas
where they held Bible School for the chil-
dren, played sports with them and donat-
ed over 60 Bibles to the Feed the Sheep
Church in that area.
According to Pastor Tim Houston, Ex-
ecutive Director of the school, the students
of his school do this type of work in the
United States as part of their training.
When the students complete their two
years, they decide whether they want to
get their education degree or go on to
get a higher degree in divinity.
This is their 9th year coming to Ab-
aco, an experience they enjoy because
they say that the people treat them so
well. Pastor Houston continues to be
appreciative to Bishop Campbell of the
Church of God of Dundas Town for
opening his doors to them every time
they come. He thanked the women from
the church for spoiling them with all the
good old Bahamian cooking.
The school plans to continue visiting
Abaco as long as there is a need.

gan the ministry in the 1990s and since that
time they have traveled to other churches
to host movies outside.
Mr. Sands believes many people will go
to see a movie who will not attend church.
He believes he can reach more people,
young and old, via this method.
When Mr. Sands had decided to use the

Maxwell site, he began the procedures to
get the necessary permit. He is grateful to

A concession stand selling hot dogs,
chips, drinks and sweets is open on Satur-

receive a love gift which will be used to
keep the ministry going.
Mr. Sands is adamant about not charg-
ing to do God's work because as he ex-
plained it, if God gives you a ministry, He

will supply the needs of that ministry. To
date, he is extremely pleased with the sup-
port received.

you to walk away from here being able to
minimize stress and to be a healthier you."
Felicia Knowles, Marketing Coordina-

She said that these "desk fitness" exercises
also encourage better blood circulation and

were preparing the food.
A small group eight people showed up for
the early morning exercise that took them a
three-mile walk from Brown's Bay to Don
MacKay Boulevard and back to Brown's
Bay. While they walked, volunteers were
setting up tables with chicken and pigs feet
souse, condiments and soft drinks.
Barely out of breath, Administrator Wil-
ma Colebrook made her return to Brown's
Bay in 42 minutes, claiming first place. Her
niece, Bianca Burrows, followed her a few
seconds later. Most of the walkers took
more than one hour to cover the route.
After a few minutes recovery, they all
settled at tables set along the beach to enjoy
their souse which had been cooked by Mur-
phy Town residents. Many other people were
attracted by the display table and stopped to
buy their share of the hearty breakfast.
The people participating enjoyed the
walk so much that they suggested the event
be held once a month as a disciplinary ex-
ercise. The comment was well received
by the North Abaco Historical Society's
President's Millie Dawkins.
The money raised in the event will go
towards paying the fees incurred to legally
set up the organization.
Subsequent fund raising will go towards
renovating the Principal's House, a struc-
ture that will become not only a museum
on the main island of Abaco, but the first
museum of Bahamian- African artifacts.

Progress on the Administration building

Work progresses on the foundation of the Admnistration building under construction
in Dundas Town. It has required much work to prepare the site that had to be leveled
and holes filled. The work is being done by the Bahamian firm Woslee Construction.
