Elbow Cay Club project is being considered

After their tour of Orchid Bay the four
ministers moved on to view Elbow Cay
Club property, which the developers want
to redevelop into a resort and marina with
additional cottages and home sites.
During their tour the ministers took time
to meet with the developers and their rep-
resentatives to ask and answer questions,
sharing their observation and suggestions
with them as they seek approval for their
respective projects.
After several town meetings and discus-
sions with the Hope Town District Coun-
cil, the development was rejected due to
feedback from the community made up of
locals and second homeowners.
On their way to view Elbow Cay Club's
property, the ministers passed through a
group of supporters of the Council's deci-
sion to reject the Elbow Cay Club develop-
ment holding placards and chanting "Just
say no."

Victor Apatt, one of the developers
seeking approval for the project, presented
the proposed redevelopment to the minis-
ters. He said their initial design, which had
previously been rejected, was based on in-
put from the community. After this plan
was rejected due to "density and the size
of the marina," they sought further input
from the community and the local Coun-
cil "and came to what we thought was an
The new plans show an inland basin
which reduced the density of the property,
and they moved the marina off to the side
and "everything we [the developers and the
Council] spoke about and put into writing

Hank Hafford, another of the develop-
ers, said, "This is a 20-year plan; it's go-
Please see Elbow Cay Page 5

A group of the four government ministers along with other officials and community mem-
bers toured the derelict buildings of the Elbow Cay Club that are now uppqI r'ly occupied
by many immigrants. The ministers have assured the developers and the community that
a decision will be made soon on the plans for a proposed re-development of the property.

A group of protesters met the four government ministers on their arrival in Hope Town.
The protesters feel that the development is too large and will put too much strain on the
infrastructure of the cay.

The developers made a presentation -i inl, the group was touring the Elbow Cay Club
property. Victor Apatt is holding the original plan on the left that was rejected by the
Hope Town District Council and Hank Hafford has the revised plan on the right. The
revised plan accommodated the changes that were recommended but was also rejected.
The group listening to the presentation included Elbow Cay residents.

ing to take many years for this to be exe-
cuted and implemented." Mr. Apatt added
that building a parking lot, boat ramp and a
new ferry dock in the middle of the island
will help take pressure off Sunshine Park
and Hope Town.
The ministers asked questions about the
density of the development, the use of fill
extracted from the excavation of the basin,
water flow in the marina and sought assur-
ance that the marina did not extend beyond
the points of land into the natural boat pas-
Mr. Symonette asked what the develop-

ers would seek duty free exemptions on.
Mr. Apatt said they would want it on ev-
erything except the estate lots in the sub-
division behind the club. He added that
the cottage lots in the subdivision would
be added to the pool of hotel/rental rooms.
The developers "fully intend to hire all
Bahamian workers." Mr. Symonette said
that it needed to be noted in their appli-
cation to "ensure that it is an enforceable
proposition and not just something that was
said one day in October."
After the ministers held a meeting with
the Council and the developers, Mr. Sy-
monette took a few minutes to speak to the
remaining supporters of the Council's de-

cision that remained outside the local gov-
ernment office.
He told them they had come to review
and make recommendations. "We have not
made any decisions yet, but one thing we
have made clear is that we will not draw

the process out." He said they would get
an ariel photograph of Elbow Cay to get
a better view of the project as well as to
see all areas where docks have been placed
and cuts made into mangroves and look at
approvals that have been given in the past.



I is a very rare occurrence wnen your governme ministers are on n aco rogetner. aut
the Hon. Brent Symonette, the Hon. Dr. Earl Deveaux, the Hon. Neko Grant and the
Hon. Byron Woodside spent October 27 on Abaco looking at two proposed developments
as well as several infrstructural projects. Here they are examining the rebuilt dock at
Sunshine Park in Hope Town. This dock is allowing freight for the cay to be offloaded
here rather than at the upper public dock where the freight caused much confusion and
inconvenience. Sunshine Park also relieves the parking problems for that community.

Another stop for the group was the dump on Elbow Cay. This well organized and well
maintained transfer station, commonly called a dump, is managed by Clay and Andrew
Wilhoyte. The bins shown in the foreground are positioned so it is easy for trucks to dump
trash into them. In the distance is a large, heavy duty chipper that converts all yard trash
to mulch. This greatly reduces the amount of trash that has to be transported to Marsh
Harbour to be hauled to the landfill. Additionally, bottles, aluminum cans and batter-
ies are collected separately to be recycled. The ministers were impressed with the clean

Tourism entertained religious tourism group

By Mirella Santillo
In an effort to promote The Bahamas
as a religious travel destination, Linville
Johnson, Deputy Director in the Minis-
try of Tourism, invited several prominent
faith-based news people to visit Abaco and
New Providence for a five-day stay in our
Worldwide, religious tourism is a $18
billion market and The Bahamas is a natu-
ral for hosting these visitors as this country
has a strong Christian heritage and tradi-
tion. The Bahamas is one of only a few
globally that has an entire department
devoted to appealing to religious church
groups, families and religious conventions
to the islands.
The group that Mr. Johnson brought
are influential Christian leaders producing

television programs and publishing Chris-
tian magazines. Russ Jones and his wife
Jackie from Newton, Kansas, and Bezalel
"Buzzy" Gordon from Holland, Michigan,
were Mr. Johnson's guests. Mr. Jones is
a former reporter for NBC and currently
freelancing for CBN. He hosts the Total
Living Network and is the producer for
religious segments for Travel with Spirit,
a faith-based television series. He is the
President of Big Picture Media group. His
wife assists with photography, web design
and marketing. Together they publish the
Christian Press.com and Wichita Christian
Mr. Gordon is an award winning writer
and the author of Frommer's Travel Guide.
He specializes as a writer for Travel Tour
Magazine which targets tour operators,

group leaders, travel agents, qualified tour
planners, educators and travel-clubs direc-
tors. The magazine is distributed to more
than 15,000 people.
Two local representatives of the Minis-
try of Tourism, Kendy Anderson and Mil-
lie Dawkins, planned an exciting stay for
the visitors, allowing them to meet local
religious leaders, sample local cuisine and
visit as many sites as possible in the short
time they stayed on Abaco.
The group attended the swearing in of
Junior Council members at Abaco Central
High School on November 5 and inter-
viewed the Hon. Byron Woodside, Minis-
ter of Local Government, who was present
for the ceremony.
The group visited Green Turtle Cay for
a tour of the historical town where they
met with church leaders. They were in-
terested in learning about the Island Roots
Heritage Festival. They enjoyed time at
the beach and a meal at Treasure Cay.
They were also taken to Hope Town

The ministers also paid a visit to the

The ministers were told by Mr. Esco-
bar that MAN's testing of all four 12MW
generators was complete, and they were
waiting for BEC personnel to be present to
complete the final phase of testing which
would require BEC to start up and run the
site while MAN Diesel observed.
Mr. Jones said they expected to have the
personnel available and ready by the first
week of November to start the final tests.
The ministers concluded their tour and
returned to New Providence.

Linville Johnson with the Florida Tourism office spoke to the guests and others about the
potential of religious tourism for Abaco. It is a very big market and Abaco would be well
suited for small convention groups, retreats and other groups. A variety of activities is
available on Abaco as well as a friendly, helpful atmosphere.

The Editor Says ..

Students will experience leadership roles

A new pilot program was initiated last
week by government in six high schools on
five Family Islands Junior Local Gov-
ernment. Students in grades 10, 11 and 12
were exposed to the election ritual.
At Abaco Central High School, 11 stu-
dents had been nominated, paid a $1nomi-
nation fee, campaigned to their fellow
students and went through an election
complete with voter registration cards and
ballots. At the end of the exercise nine
students were elected and took the oath of
office from Minister Byron Woodside to
form a Junior Local Government Council.
It is envisioned that the program will
be put into all high schools throughout the
country when problems are found and re-
solved. The program in these six schools
is being monitored closely, watching for
problems and to see how the students react
to their elected position.
Incidentally, this program is being
closely watched by other governments in
the Commonwealth as The Bahamas is the
first Commonwealth country to involve
the youth to this extent. Youth are often
chosen by various governments to serve
ceremonial one-day terms in various gov-
ernment positions. These make for good
newspaper stories but accomplish little in
the long term.
This Bahamian junior program presents
the youth with the opportunity to work
with their peers, make decisions, manage
and spend money. They must initiate and
complete two projects, one related to their
school and one in the Central Abaco dis-
During their term in office they will
interact with the members in the Central
Abaco District Council. This interaction
may be as observers to Council meetings
and statutory board meetings or they may
ask to make a presentation on some issue
important to them.
This program parallels the role of actual
members of our local government system
who must often lobby, pressure and cajole
central government for help with pressing

projects beyond local expertise, authority
or funding. There are often urgent local
needs which are beyond local capabilities,
expertise or financing.
Government organizers of this junior
student program are hoping that the nine
students in each of the six different schools
will conclude their term with visible ac-
A coordinator in Nassau will be moni-
toring the student proceedings carefully by
analyzing the minutes of their meeting and
through discussions with the local adult co-
ordinators. The elected students will be de-
briefed in the spring after the program ends
to get their candid opinion on the success,
challenges and failures they perceived.
Government's long term goal is to see
the program extended to all schools in
the country with leaders emerging as the
students grow and mature into adulthood.
Government is acutely aware that leaders
must step forward in the future at all levels
of society, in business and church as well
as local and national government positions,
whether by election or by appointment.
Even those who enter government service
as employees may get a better understand-
ing of the governing process they may be
a part of.
We suspect that Nassau and Freeport
have multiple activities geared to youth
that assist in developing leadership quali-

ties. Central Abaco offers many opportuni-
ties for youth advancement with programs
becoming scarcer with distance. We will
not attempt to list all of these or their goals
but some of the larger groups are:
Defense Force Rangers
Governor General's Youth Award
Junior Achievers
Junior Toastmasters
Pilot Club Anchors
Rotary Club Interact
The sponsoring organization for each
group has its own goals in mind such as
discipline, business exposure, community
projects, public speaking and other devel-
opmental traits.
This new Local Government Junior
Council program is tailored toward future
leadership in government service. How-
ever, the traits learned should give the
students skills that would serve them well
as leaders in business, church or social
organizations. A well functioning society
needs understanding and qualified leaders
at many levels and in many positions.
The traits of a good leader or manager
involve the ability to work with others, to
bring the concerns of a group into focus
to get something accomplished. These stu-
dents will learn that nine people with nine
different ideas will not get much done. It
takes cooperation to sort through the dis-
cussions and find those issues that are more

important and which are within the group's
abilities, authority and finances.
Beyond their learning to cooperate
within their new circle of authority, they
will be exposed to the concerns, demands
and suggestions of their fellow classmates
whom they are now representing.
In listening to some of the platform
speeches as they campaigned among their
classmates, the candidates' focus was on
school issues which are a major part of
their daily life. However, this program
will work to expose them to community is-
sues beyond the school campus.
They would not be expected to be overly
concerned with the airport, BECs expan-
sion or other issues which the adult popu-
lation feel is important. But they can be
expected to present issues related to recre-
ational facilities, parks, beach access and
other concerns of their age group.
The concerns of youth are often swept
aside by their elders who have their own
agendas and who control the finances. It
will be interesting to see how these junior
councils with their new authority and lim-
ited funds will effect improvements to their
school and community. They may learn
how to partner with others to accomplish
a common goal.
The exuberance of youth is a wonderful
asset. It will be interesting to see where it
leads to.

ment official in Nassau have the right or
the power to overturn a well considered
decision made by a Town Council acting
on the input from us, the people? What do
non-residents of Elbow Cay know about
the lifestyle or desires of the people who
live and work on Elbow Cay? Each set-
tlement of The Bahamas has its own idea
about how its hometown should be and in
what way it wants the settlement to grow.
The Town Council members are voted
into their positions by the people of the
settlements who are the only people who
know what is right for the place they have
chosen to live. Outsiders don't have a clue
and should not have a say.
The Town Council listens to its compa-
triots, then the members work long hours
for very little pay and serious sacrifice of
their home life and probably their busi-
nesses as well. However, their community-
service work may all go into the garbage
pail because some unknowledgeable Nas-
sau official who, without being a mem-
ber of the community, reverses the Town
Council's considered decision.
This is preposterous and totally unfair to
us the people.
It's more than a slap in the face it
discourages local residents from wanting
to be on the Town Council and therefore
in the long run, serving the community.
Council may only attract those who may
be unqualified for Council work. In order
for the forward-looking local government
and Town Council system to function in a
democratic way, it must have the last and
final say on everything the members do.
The Town Council should, of course,
seek advice on the legality of an issue, if
in doubt. The appropriate Nassau author-
ity should peruse the Town Council's deci-
sion. If it doesn't comply with the laws of
the country, then send it back for revision
by the Town Council. But never should
Nassau have the right or the power to undo
what the Town Council legally has decided
upon. That's the will of the people speak-
ing, and if it is legal, it should not be over-
turned or reversed by anyone.

Local government with its Town Coun-
cil system will ultimately fail if this serious
flaw is not corrected immediately.
Why should our best heads spend their
valuable time on a Town Council when
what it votes on can be overridden or dis-
regarded by someone who doesn't live on
Elbow Cay?
It is unfair to the people of any commu-
nity and should be stopped forthwith.
All the other settlements in Abaco have
exactly the same situations, though their
values and objectives may be different.
The Town Council system was created
to hear and act upon the desires the people
who will be most affected by the proposals
for changes, improvements and develop-
ments. Let's make it work that way.
That is the only way that carries out the
people's will.

Clarifying problem
with electric inspection
Dear Editor,
This reply is in reference to a letter sent
to The Abaconian dated October 15, 2010.
First off, the person that wrote the let-
ter is getting their information secondhand.
The person was not even on the island
when this took place.
Their spouse and themself took upon
themselves to hire a "electrician" who at
the time of their electrical inspection did
not have a valid electrical licence, this
coming about because he was not up to
date with National Insurance.
I was approached by their "electrician"
who asked me if I could arrange for the
Ministry of Works' electrical inspector to
inspect the electrical installation.
The electrical inspector saw many in-
fractions doors hung on the wrong side,

GFI outlet. There was also a doorway that
was closed off. After getting access to this
other room, we found out that the building
was split into two dwellings, one for the
owners and one for their son.
On the outside the temporary service
was connected to the building. They obvi-
ously were living on the temporarily ser-
vice which is illegal. Their electrician was
told by the inspector to disconnect it.
When we came back to check on the
infractions, all were corrected. But the
temporary was still connected. It is still
hooked up to this day.
Their "electrician" was told at this time
that we needed a copy of the plan to see if
it had an electrical riser. None was provid-
ed on their plan. Their "electrician" was
told by the inspector to provide one.
On parting, their electrician said he
would notify the owner about the cost.
When contacted later by their "electri-
cian," he gave me permission to do all the
necessary paperwork which included two
specifications, one for the apartment and
one for the dwelling under construction
and the riser.
When the other spouse that was not
there during all of this found out what was

happening, they contacted Mr. Schaefer.
He explained to the spouse what was the
procedure. Mr. Schaefer called me and re-
quested that I do paperwork to allow her to
stay on the temporary.

Workshop will
assist singers
By Simmone Bowe
"Voices are given, singers are made,"

ocietv receives donation

Financial gave a donation to the Abaco
ncer Society on October 19. This was the
Uritish American by the sale of T-shirts. Pre-
nt to Veronica Saunders, center, were The-
omer Service Representative, left, and Nia
Manager, right.

so says leading Bahamian vocal coach Lee
Callender. He believes that "people spend
so much time learning songs, they never
learn how to sing." That is something that
he is going to change as he shares for the
first time the Seven Steps he has discov-
ered that will lead singers of all kinds to
"your best singing ever"! In the first of
its kind Vocal Training Workshop on No-
vember 20th at Faith Convention Center
in Marsh Harbour, Mr. Callender will be
sharing these simple, yet powerful steps,
designed to give singers and aspiring sing-
ers the tools to "discover, develop and dis-
play their vocal talent." From 9:30 a.m.
to 2 p.m. Mr. Callender will be working
with those in attendance to show them how
to sound better, solving vocal issues and
helping them to be more in control of their
voice because "The voice has a mind of its
own so it has to be controlled."
Lee B. Callender has led a diversified
musical existence. He began piano lessons
at six years under the tutelage of his grand-
father, the late Timothy Gibson, composer
of the National Anthem of The Bahamas
and he was coached by the late E. Clement
Bethel, Bahamian composer, pianist and
former Director of Culture in the Bahamas.
Mr. Callender coaches singers in a wide
variety of styles: gospel, jazz, R & B, clas-
sical, folk and pop. He is looking forward
to sharing his personal experience and
working with as many singers as he can at
the Vocal Training Workshop because, as
he says, "When talent meets skill, artistic
success is ... inevitable!"
The workshop has limited space so Cal-
lender advises all interested singers to get
their tickets early at the Abaco Print Shop
in Marsh Harbour.

"The workshop," says Mr. Callender,
"will change your singing forever."

spread across its surface.
Ms. McKenzie said the incident is not an
isolated one. She believes it stems from a
previous incident involving the molestation
of her handicapped daughter. Her elderly
mother was emotional as she talked about
what was happening and how it is the first
time she's been so fearful while living in

her own home. However, looking on the
bright side of such a negative situation, she
thanked God for protecting her family and
moving them out of harm's way.
When contacted, Supt. Noel Curry con-
firmed that they had been notified of the
incident, but in an effort to avoid adding
prejudice to the court case, he said they
have already taken one person into custody
and that anyone else implicated in the mat-
ter will be arrested.

Victim was pinned under car

A resident of Central Pines Estates sustained injuries when the car he was repairing fell
on him, pinning him under the car. The car, without tires, was held up by a cement block
that was on its side. The cement block collapsed, allowing the car to drop. The men who
were involved with the fire management seminar happened by and lifted the car so the
man could be moved out. Some of the group had medical training so could administer
first aid. He was taken to the government clinic for medical care. The accident happened
in Central Pines.

BYOB Bring Your
Own Bag Campaign
By Kristin Williams
Friends of the Environment has part-
nered with the three major grocery stores
on Elbow Cay in an exciting BYOB (Bring
Your Own Bag) campaign. Harbour View
Grocery, Vernon's Grocery and LVA
Convenience Store have all pledged to ban
the use of ALL plastic bags in their stores
for the month of November. Patrons will
be given a reusable green bag, paper bags
or recycled cardboard boxes as alternatives
to the environmentally damaging plastic
The 2010 International Coastal Cleanup
report ranks plastic bags as second on the
list of most frequently collected types of
marine debris worldwide, (cigarette butts
are number one). Scientists believe that
plastic can last for up to 1,000 years, so
all the plastic ever made is still around in
some form or another! Plastic is still dan-
gerous when it breaks up into smaller piec-
es because it can enter the food chain when
small animals eat it by mistake. This means
it could end up on our plates!
The BYOB campaign is a natural exten-
sion of Friends of the Environment's work
to inspire people to act on behalf of the en-
vironment. The over-consumption of plas-
tic bags in The Bahamas has been a long
time concern of the organization; in fact,
it was the first to distribute reusable green
bags in the country back in 2007. Execu-
tive Director Kristin Williams stated, "The
fact that over 100,000 tons of plastic end
up in our oceans on a daily basis is appall-
ing. There are alternatives, so we need to

use them! It's that simple."
The Ocean Conservancy reported in
2009 that 60 percent of the litter collected
at the International Coastal Cleanup was
items that are made to be disposable. We
can help combat that problem by refusing
plastic and shopping with reusable bags.
The whole community is involved in the

Mercedes Lowe is holding one of the reus-
able bags that three shops in Hope Town
are giving to customers instead of plastic
bags. The grocery stores are not using any
plastic bags for the month of November but
offering these bags, paper bags or card-
board boxes. Friends of the Environment
is encouraging everyone to use alterna-
tives to plastic as plastic does not degrade.
Mrs. Lowe is in the Harbour View Grocery

BYOB initiative; in fact, the Hope Town
School students have pledged to be the
plastic police to help monitor the prohibi-
tion of plastic in the stores.
This campaign was made possible by
long time Hope Town homeowners Mike
and Carol Muscato, who donated the green
bags to be given away at no cost to the
customers. FRIENDS hopes that the cam-
paign will inspire other individuals and
communities to BYOB every time they go
Elbow Cay hold town
meeting on zoning
By Timothy Roberts
After almost two months of planning
and discussion, the Elbow Cay Zoning and
Ordinances Commission held its first town
meeting on October 26 seeking public in-
put into the zoning of Elbow Cay.
The first of several planned town meet-
ings was attended by about 25 people who
interacted with the commission members
during the presentation of suggested zon-
ing areas for Elbow Cay. The commission
is made up of Susan Bethel, chairman,
Vernon Malone, deputy chairman, Shane
Cash, Olivia Paterson, Junior Maynard,
Lana Russell and Linda Cole.
Mrs. Bethel said, "It would be easy to
zone Eagle Rock [there's nothing there],
but we have the responsibility to zone a
community that already exists." She said
the town meeting's purpose was to hear
suggestions from the community.
Olivia Paterson presented a map of El-
bow Cay that the commission had "zoned"
giving an overview of each section and
why the members had proposed the kind

of zoning for each. She noted that the com-
mission had decided only after much dis-
cussion. In order to maintain the unique
and historic charm and personality of Hope
Town, they decided that the area should
be designated mixed use (commercial and
Other areas were designated as either
commercial or residential with the expla-
nation that no commercial buildings would
be allowed in residential areas; however,
if the property owner in a commercial
area wanted to build residential it would
be permitted. It was stated that any busi-
ness already existing in an area that was
designated residential would be "grandfa-
thered" in.
Shane Cash said the zones on the map
were suggestions, as a few people ex-
pressed concerns in some areas, and that
the purpose of the meeting was to fine-tune
the zones with input from the community.
Some persons in the audience recom-
mended a more descriptive definition of
commercial and residential, suggesting
there is light and heavy designations to make
things more clear for property owners.
A second homeowner asked, in response
to the fact that only registered Bahamians
will be allowed to vote, how they will be
included in the process. Mrs. Bethel said the
second homeowners' input at town meetings
would be used in the fine-tuning of the final
referendum which will be voted on.
Ms. Patterson encouraged those attend-
ing to write their suggestions down and to
ask others to do the same to be presented to
the commission.

Orchid Bay seeks approval for further development

Orchid Bay From Page 1
and Randy Speck, representative of owner
William Johnson of Atlanta, Georgia, to
see the extent of the area proposed for the
canal and the environment that would be
affected by the excavation.
Mr. Albury explained to the ministers
the scope of the proposed project which
will expand the development by adding
86 additional lots and creating a canal and
private marina. The developers hope to
include a 100-room upscale hotel on the
ocean side of their property.
Mr. Symonette asked Mr. Albury
what Orchid Bay's plan of action would
be should they get approval. Mr. Albury
explained that they would get their final
drawings done. They would have two
groups of five men begin salvaging fauna

from the area to be excavated, giving them
up to four months to move protected veg-
etation. He would then have George Riv-
iere survey, putting in the perimeters and
marking the area to be excavated.
Speaking of the change in direction of
the development, Mr. Albury said that all
present property owners except one were
in favor of the addition of the canal and
marina. They had good support from the
community of Guana Cay on the project.
Mr. Maillis said that since there will be
an extensive use of the area formerly set
aside as green space in the development
of the proposed canal that mitigation is to
be considered. Mr. Symonette wanted to
know what would be done. Mr. Maillis
said the area to be excavated has a small
area of inland mangroves which are not as
productive as tidal mangroves. The present

ecosystem will be "obliterated;" however,
what would come in its place is "anoth-
er kind of system; it's not like it is being
turned into a tar parking lot." It is a situ-
ation that will require an Environmental
Impact Assessment be done to evaluate the
Troy Albury from Dive Guana came
along for the tour and shared a few con-
cerns with the ministers that he has relat-
ing to the development. He requested that
these be written into the Heads of Agree-
ment so as to make it enforceable. Aside
from environmental concerns, which he
felt the ministers adequately addressed, he
wanted guarantees that Bahamians would
directly benefit from the development. He
listed jobs such as property management,
real estate sales and transportation for ex-

He requested that there be no duty ex-
emptions given as these lots would be sold
for use as private residences. He added that
the "size of the project needs to be consid-
ered and what effect it will have on a small
island community."
Mr. Albury said it is the intent of Orchid
Bay to use Bahamian labor as they have
done in the past. Regarding labor, he said,
"I want to start with Guana Cay and Aba-
co, then Freeport and Nassau if need be."
Mr. Grant recommended they consider
individual pump-out stations at the marina
over the use of a single pump station.
At the conclusion of the meeting Mr. Al-
bury asked that the ministers, in discussion

Perrec (Perry) Thomas Petry of Hope
Town died on October 14. Born in Ant-
werpen, Belgium, on June 6, 1950, he was
raised in Canada, Venezuela, Holland and
The Bahamas. He spent many years on the
water working on cruise ships, yachts and
finally sailing the Caribbean to ultimately
find the port of Hope Town to call home.
Perry started his life as a self-taught
painter and after many years returned to
his art as a sculptor. He would take native
woods from The Bahamas mostly and recy-
cle them into works of art. His art dealt with
realism, impressionism and his last works
were "Wave Forms" and his "Emerging
Series." Perry had a real gift for envision-
ing nature in a raw piece of wood and trans-
ferring his vision for the wood so everyone
else could see his what he saw.
Perry is survived by his mother, Linda
Petry Binggeli of Steffisburg, Switzerland.
He is predeceased by his father, Robert
A memorial service will be held in Hope
Town on January 23, 2011 to celebrate
Perry's life.
Carl William Fischer, Sr, 73, of De-
land, Florida, passed away on October
15. He owned and operated a marina in
Florida and enjoyed boating and fishing.
He had a special love of the Bahamas, es-
pecially Green Turtle Cay where he had
been coming for many years. He sponsored
the Edgewater Bahamas Rendezvous that
brought a group of power boaters to Green
Turtle Cay each June. The groups stayed at
the Green Turtle Club and Bluff House. He
worked hard to keep the group coming and
arranged everything from the trip crossing
the Gulfstream to what they would have for
dinner to prizes for a fishing tournament,
to donations to the Amy Roberts Primary
School or Abaco Cancer Society. He was
responsible for bringing hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars in business to Green Turtle
Cay and Abaco.

died at the Princess Margaret Hospital on
October 29.

Return to Haiti, August 2010

[Dr. Marc Binard returned to Haiti in
September. In his previous story he went
to the hurricane-ravaged Port au Prince.
This trip was to a area not affected by the
earthquake and not so densely populated.
He will be returning to Abaco for a visit
By Dr. Marc Binard
I awoke with a jolt. The cry of a baby
was unmistakable. I sat up and placed my
feet on the floor. Momentarily disoriented,
I prepared to get Gabrielle out of her crib
and bring her to her mother for a midnight
Then reality started to creep in, first
through my feet. This was a cool tile floor,
not maple wood. A warm, humid breeze
wafted through the open window. Above
my head a ceiling fan creaked with an un-
certain note. Outside, waves slapped the
rocky shore.
In the darkened room, I regained my
orientation. I was in Haiti, not Sturgeon
Bay, Wisconsin. Still, I remained puzzled
and confused. Did I dream the cry of an
infant? Years of being on call have made
me a light sleeper; I awaken at the slight-
est provocation. I couldn't believe that the
crying baby was a part of a dream. I have
found, however, that dreams in Haiti take
on a whole new dimension. Dreams in
Haiti can be so realistic that I have awoken
exhausted from my nocturnal travels and
I flopped back on the bed, this time out-
side the mosquito net. The bed had a wel-
coming softness, a great improvement over
my previous nights, sleeping accommoda-
tions, the floor of the Fort Lauderdale air-
port. On this trip to Haiti, I did not have to
use my backdoor entrance to Haiti through
the Turks and Caicos Islands. I had booked

a direct flight from Fort Lauderdale to Cap
Haitian. Unfortunately, the scheduled 8
a.m. departure for Cap had been changed
the day before to 6:30 a.m. and I had been
advised to be at the airport three hours be-
fore the departure time.
Oui," the Haitian woman had told me
on the phone, "that means check in at 3:30
a.m." Since my flight from Wisconsin ar-
rived at 10:30 p.m., it seemed pointless to
get a hotel room for five hours so I made
my bed on the floor of the terminal. I
bought the latest John Grisham novel, read
it cover to cover and returned it to the store
for a 50 percent refund at 5 a.m.
The lobby had quickly filled with the
sights and sounds of Haiti, small peo-
ple lugging huge suitcases, parents of a
6-month-old-lap baby who didn't under-
stand why the infant didn't get a 60 pound
luggage allotment. I step outside to get
some air. Even at 4 a.m., the humid South
Florida air is oppressive.
An old white van pulls up outside the
terminal and parks in the exit lane, totally
oblivious to the horns of the blocked traf-
fic. "Flight for Haiti?" asks the driver in
heavily accented English.
"Avion pou Cap soti la," I reply in Cre-
The driver, pleasantly surprised to find
a blanc who speaks Creole, asks if I will
help her elderly mother.
I help the woman who is at least 80 years
old out of the van, ignoring the growing
line of blocked cars with blaring horns.
"Ou gen valise?" I ask. Silly question.
Of course, the woman has a suitcase. I
open the back door of the van and remove
a large suitcase.
"Non, Non, tout sa yo," all of them,
she says.

It's not just the suitcase. There are two
boxes and a plastic bag full of rapidly
thawing frozen chicken. I pick up the en-
tire load, offer a hand to the woman and
re-enter the terminal. Standing in line, the
woman is pleased to learn that I am a doc-
tor and wants to book an appointment to
see me when she returns to Florida. I ex-
plain that I work in Wisconsin, the Baha-
mas and Haiti, not Florida. "M'ap cheche
ou en Haiti pou consultation," I will look
for you in Haiti for a consultation, she
promises and adds that clearly God sent me
to help her today. Of course, a blanc porter
who speaks bad Creole and practices island
medicine, only God could have set this up.
My reverie is once again broken by the
sound of crying. I now know for sure that
the earlier cry was not a dream. It was a
kid, though not my nine-month-old baby in
Wisconsin. This was a Haitian kid, specifi-
cally, one of my friend Tim's baby goats,
bleating for her mother outside my win-
Chapter 2
It had been six months, nearly to the

day, since my last trip to Haiti. This trip
had none of the urgency that prompted
my post earthquake trip in January. There
were however a few goals that needed to
be accomplished on this trip.
The stories I had written about my last
trip had resulted in a large outpouring of
support from readers in The Bahamas and
the U.S. The financial support allowed me
to start the "Bon Bagay Haiti Fund," a fund
that supports projects in Haiti. The fund
has no overhead since I cover all my own
expenses in Haiti. Too often I have seen
very little donated aid trickle down to the
people who needed the help. Sadly, much
of the donated funds seem to pay for large
staffs, usually driving large air conditioned
SUV's or sitting in expensive restaurants
and hotels while planning grandiose proj-
ects that never seem to get finished.
My approach is quite different. I travel
to the communities that need help. I ask the
community leaders or doctors what their
most immediate needs are. I then provide

This is the clinic in the villate of Labadie. It is staffed by Cubans who are paid by the
Cuban government but receives no funding from the Haitian government. The only funds
available are the fees charged the patients. Dr. Binard carried needed medications to
them from donations that he has received from friends in The Bahamas and in the U.S.

Needs are great everywhere in Haiti

Binard From Page 22

financial support by purchasing supplies or
equipment and give it directly to respon-
sible individuals who I can trust. I believe
in supporting small local projects that are
sustainable and build on pre-existing Hai-
tian infrastructure. Before I made this trip,
I asked my friend Tim, who lives in Haiti
and has 33 years experience in the country,
what the greatest needs were in his region.
Tim identified the greatest needs as sup-
plies and equipment for the local clinic in
Labadie and also a school that needed re-
building in the nearby village of Fort Bour-
goise. Through a mutual Cuban friend, I
was able to get a list of needed supplies
from the Cuban doctor who staffed the
clinic and Tim, who is a builder, was able
to identify the materials needed to rebuild
the school.
My second goal was a personal one.

One of my last unfulfilled goals in life is
to have a spot in Haiti to call my own. By
an unusual string of coincidences, the lot
adjacent to Tim's house had become avail-
able, and it was my hope to make it mine.
Tim had already done most of the challeng-
ing work to complete a land deal in Haiti.
I needed to come down to review and sign
the paperwork.
Chapter 3
Word spreads quickly that there is a
doctor staying with Tim. My first pa-
tents are Tim's cook and her two-year-old
daughter "Dada." Examinations complet-
ed and medications dispensed, I sat down
to breakfast with Tim and planned our day.
We would travel to Cap Haitian to finalize
the paperwork for the lot purchase. This
would involve trips to the lawyer, notary
and surveyor so we could expect to spend
the entire day in Cap.
Breakfast completed, I was greeted at

the door by most of Tim's work force.
The mason has back pain, the carpenter
is plaqued with a stomach ache, the gar-
dener has a rash. The workforce is exam-
ined and treated. I comment to Tim that it
seems that I have treated everyone except
the dog. Of course, a few days later, I am
asked to check the dog who isn't eating
and appears to be drooling. I cautiously
open his mouth, hoping his symptoms
aren't rabies. I find the culprit, a four-inch
long antenna from a lobster is lodged in
the delicate membranes under his tongue.
The large barbed dagger is removed with
great effort and fear both from the patient
and his inexperienced canine oral surgeon.
Island medicine I am comfortable with but
island canine oral surgery is a stretch.
Before we leave for Cap Haitian, it was
time to take my first walk on my lot. I have
never really seen this lot and purchased it
sight unseen based on Tim's recommenda-
tion. I spent many sleepless nights won-
dering if the transaction was legitimate. It
didn't help that nearly every day my Haiti
internet lists would describe Haiti as a na-
tion where very few people had clear title
to their property and land issues were set-
tled with an archaic Napoleonic land code.
Tim and I walked down the path from his
house to my lot and headed to the beach.
We stood on a rocky bluff overlooking what
is now called "Marc's Beach" and took in
the view. The interplay of the rugged Hai-
tian mountains cascading into the sea, the
offshore reefs and islets and the island of
La Torti in the distance composed a scene
that was truly breathtaking. We watched
as small hand-built wooden fishing sloops
headed out to sea powered by multicolored
sails while closer to shore, wooden skiffs

were sculled with oars while setting nets.
Every evening, these fishermen would stop
by Tim's house to sell us their fresh fish,
lobster and crab. This was indeed a serene
spot and I spent many hours there sitting
in the shade of a fig tree overlooking the
water while contemplating life.
Tim and I spend the remainder of the
day traveling from office to office in Cap
Haitian trying to close the real estate deal.
At the end of the day I am handed an offi-
cial deed affixed with a 1.5 gourde (3 cent)
government stamp. I am now officially a
land owner in Haiti. Celebrations are in or-
der that night and Tim and I break open an
irreplaceable 30-year-old bottle of Haitian
liquer that I had placed in his trust six years
ago with instructions that it only could be
opened when we were neighbors..
Chapter 4
My peaceful slumber was once again
shattered by the sound of crying. This time,
I was not confused. I realized that I was in
Haiti and the crying was not a dream or a
baby goat bleating for its mother. This was
the wailing of an adult. The source of the
sound seemed remote, perhaps originating
from the village.
I checked my watch; it was 2 a.m. I
walked out on the balcony and tried to bet-
ter discern where the wailing voice was
coming from. The solo voice was joined by
others. The voices morphed into a low sor-
rowful chorus that expressed pain and loss.
I returned to my bed but sleep did not
come easily. Gradually, my eyes closed
though the wailing became the soundtrack
to my dreams.

Dr. Binard found the needs in Haiti to be great

Binard From Page 23
In the morning, I discovered the source
of the wailing, a 37-year-old mason from
the village had died the night before leav-
ing behind a wife and four children. Ap-
parently, the man had been ill for several
days with abdominal pain, but he lacked
the funds to travel to Cap Haitian to secure
medical care. Even here, in a part of Haiti
unaffected by the earthquake, a man could
die for lack of bus and water taxi fare.
Chapter 5
The Labadie village clinic was staffed
with a Cuban doctor and nurse. Their en-
thusiasm belied the conditions under which
they worked. The small harborside clinic
was neat and clean but lacked the basics
such as electricity, equipment and most
medications. Patients treated at the clinic
were forced to travel to Cap Haitian to
purchase their meds from a private phar-
macy. The trip to Cap Haitian involved a
boat ride, bus ride and a long walk. This

could easily take two hours during daylight
and was impossible to accomplish at night.
The doctor was grateful for the medi-
cal supplies we brought. These supplies
could stock her clinic for a month. I asked
her for her "wish list" and she hesitantly
listed more medications such as nebulizer
solution for treating asthma and finally
when pressed, asked for an otoscope and
obstetric Doppler. Amazing that in a clin-
ic easily serving a population of 15,000
this dedicated doctor had no way of diag-
nosing an ear infection or listening for an
unborn child's heart beat. This was a gov-
ernment clinic, but they received no gov-
ernment funding. The clinic survived on
what little revenue it could generate from
the few paying patients. The staff's sala-
ries are paid by the Cuban government.
I promised to be back soon with the next
order of meds and equipment. On the way
out, I handed the doctor sufficient cash to
start a fund to cover emergency patient
travel expenses to Cap Haitian. In 2010
nobody should die for lack of bus fare,

This is a typical fishing boat for netting fish in shallow waters. The Haitians need jobs
but no work is available.

not even in Haiti.
Later that evening I decided to spend a
few hours in the village to get a feel for the
ambiance of the town and hear from my
new neighbors what their greatest needs
I bought a rum and coke from a local
bar and sat outside to enjoy the evening
breeze. In spite of the relatively late hour,
there was plenty of activity. Street ven-
dors prepared meals over charcoal fires,
a man swept the streets, for free, with a
handmade broom, dogs made themselves
comfortable lying on the ground and music
wafted from the bar.
Soon, a few curious villagers joined me
at my table so I was able to share my small
bottle of rum. I had been pleasantly sur-
prised when I ordered my rum and coke.
I was given a half pint of rum, a 16-ounce
cold coke and two large glasses of ice.
There was enough for four mixed drinks,
all for $1.25.
My new friends told me about their
lives, some fished, some farmed, some at-
tended school. From everyone I heard the
same theme "We need jobs." A slim, well
dressed young man approached the table
and introduced himself. His name was
Georges, a Labadie resident attending the
University in Port au Prince. Sadly, his
school had collapsed in the earthquake and
he was now unable to continue his stud-
ies. He wondered whether I could help him
get a U.S scholarship. I told him that this
was very difficult and asked him if he had
looked into attending the University Roi
Christophe in Cap Haitian, a school coin-
cidentally founded by the father of an old
friend of mine. Georges had looked into
studying at the University in Cap, but he
could not afford the tuition at this private

institution. I asked for Georges' contact in-
formation and promised I would do what-
ever possible to see that he could continue
his studies. Three weeks later, funds from
the Bon Bagay fund paid for Georges' uni-
versity tuition.
Chapter 6
It is time to return to Cap Haitian so
that I can catch my flight. We stop in Fort
Bourgoise, a small village between Labadie
and Cap Haitian. Fort Bourgoise, is just
far enough from Cap Haitian that it gets no
city services, and it is just far enough from
Labadie that it gets no tourism jobs. It is a
sad little village with few prospects.
We meet the mayor. He tells us what
the village needs and jobs are foremost on
his list.
"Mostly, the men break rocks, that is
their job," he explains.
Of course, besides needing jobs, the
village also needs a school rebuilt and a
clinic. Tim offers to oversee the rebuild-
ing of the school. Tim will utilize the Hai-
tian "Combite" system which closely re-
sembles the old barn raising practice in the
U.S. All the village men will join together
to provide free labor to rebuild the school
while singing traditional Combite songs
and eating specially prepared meals. The
Bon Bagay fund has supplied funds for the
materials for the project. This school will
be transformed into a clinic when a nearby
regional school is completed.
Tim drops me off at the airport.
I am surprised to see that there are no
street children begging for money. Na-
ively, I think this is because the economic
situation has improved and the children are

Life is hard everywhere in Haiti

Binard From Page 24
now in school.
After checking in for my flight, I exit
the terminal and head for "Starbucks," a
Haitian lady who boils coffee oven a char-
coal fire and sells the world's best coffee
for 12 cents a cup. Soon we are joined by
several "Marchands," Haitian women car-
rying their wares on their head in large
baskets. I pick up the tab for everyone's
coffee and fresh bread while we discuss
Haiti, life and love. I ask about my usual
friends, the street children, and the women
recall our impromptu breakfast and concert
in January when I bought out all the street
vendor's food and fed the kids and hungry
adults. The women tell me that the kids are
not in school, they have been removed by
the police, seems they made a bad impres-
sion on new arrivals in Cap.
I return to the terminal and proceed to
the last checkpoint in the airport.
The immigration officer asks me what I
was doing in Haiti.
"Mwen, docteur"
Her eyes narrow.
"Tan un moment. Wait a minute."
There is a rapid and heated discussion
between the officer and all the assembled
staff behind the glass partition.
"Vin Ici. Come here." the officer di-

rects me into the office and seats me on
a chair. I am wondering if I have broken
any immigration laws. Typically, I will get
authorization to work in Haiti but did not
do so on this brief trip. This was chiefly a
supply mission.
While I sit on the chair, contemplat-
ing my fate, a toddler is brought into the
office, a beautiful little girl, maybe three
years of age, hair neatly platted in ribbons
and bows. The girl coughs and I realize she
is sick. The assembled staff asks me for a
consultation. I ask "Who is her mother?" I
am answered with shrugs.
"Pitit sans maman Poto Prince," she is
an orphan from Port au Prince. It appears
one of the older immigration women is
her guardian though she has no informa-
tion about the child's family. I assume they
perished in the earthquake.
I try to explain that my equipment,
my stethoscope and otoscope, are in my
checked suitcase on the plane.
"Pas gen problem." No problem. In
Haiti, anything is possible.
My suitcase is removed from the plane
and I retrieve my equipment. The child has
a fever and wheezy cough. She sits quietly
on the chair while I examine her. I take an
immigration form and scrawl a prescrip-
tion for an antibiotic and ventolin syrup on
the back.

Big smiles all around, the immigration
lady stamps my exit form and wishes me a
bon voyage. "Come back soon," she says,
"I need a consultation, too, I have bad
headaches." I hand my checked bag back
to the airline agent and board the plane.
As the plane lifts off, I reflect on my
short trip. Thanks to the generosity of
others, on this trip I was able to stock a
clinic with meds and equipment, rebuild a
school and clinic and send a young man
to college. These will not be short term
projects; we will continue to support all
these projects for a long time. I know this
is true, not only because I have a 40-year

history in Haiti but also because these are
my neighbors and I have a document in
my bag with an official Haitian govern-
ment stamp that certifies this. I now have
a land base in Haiti and from this many
good 'tings will develop. I settle back into
my seat, gaze out at the dramatic moun-
tains of Haiti and realize that I am the
luckiest man alive.
Dr Binard wishes to thank the people
of Abaco for their generous ("t' ,itliri ,'.
that enable him to continue his projects in
Haiti. A special thanks to Marcus Bethel
and Judy Saul Novo at the Abaco Inn.

Ahn. Local Government at Work

Murphy Town Committee Nov. 1
By Mirella Santillo
The Murphy Town Committee monthly
meeting was held in the evening of No-
vember 1st at the Burial Society in Murphy
Town, the first meeting since August 23rd.
A quorum was reached early.
The meeting consisted of reviewing
several demands for assistance from com-
munity members in need. Following Glen
McDonald's objections about giving mon-
ey to people, it was decided that the Com-
mittee would grant limited assistance but
would refer the persons to Social Services.
Administrator Cephas Cooper concurred
with Mr. McDonald's objections and re-
minded the Committee members that the
government's grants and contributions
were not intended for personal use but for
the benefit of the entire community.
The most important topic of the meeting
concerned two projects already underway:
the construction of a community center
and the development of a seafront park,
Doris Bay, reserved for family entertain-
ment. The foundation for the community
center has been dug and the grounds along
Doris Bay have been cleared. The discus-
sion centered around the necessity to en-
close the land with poles. It was agreed
that ten poles would be enough. Mr. Mc-
Donald had already found poles at $125
each, a price that the committee members
thought a little high. It was decided to con-
tact BEC and check on the price the com-

pany would charge for the poles. Mr. Mc-
Donald agreed to follow-up on that matter.
After deliberation, the Committee
members agreed to grant its approval for
a take-out to be opened in town, provided
the building meets with the approval of the
Health Department.
Chairman Renardo Curry informed the
other members that he had already ap-
proached businesses to sponsor the build-
ing of the community center, among them
Abaco Block & Concrete. He was waiting
for answers to how much the businesses
would contribute.
He mentioned that he had received other
demands for assistance that will be dis-
cussed at the next meeting.
Central Abaco Licensing Board Nov. 4

on November 4 to review applications for
clothing stores, sports bars and nightclub,

ett Drive was reviewed. However, it was
noted that Environmental Health had not

Funds for a harp was donated to the

National Sympathy Orchestra

Jennifer Hudson went to Nassau to Ca-
ble Bahamas headquarters on October 25
for the presentation of a cheque to the Ba-
hamas National Symphony Orchestra for
the purchase of a harp. Mrs. Hudson is
the Founder and President of The Bahamas
National Symphony Orchestra. Although
she now lives on Abaco, she travels back
to Nassau for events involving the orches-
tra and continues playing in all of its con-
Dr. Keith Wisdom of the Board of the
Cable Bahamas Cares Foundation pre-
sented the cheque on behalf of the Board.
A harpist has been contacted in the United
States who is willing to go to Nassau not
only play the harp until Bahamians are pro-
ficient but will teach four young persons to
play the instrument. This programme with
the young people will ensure that the Baha-
mas National Symphony Orchestra contin-
ues well into the future.
The orchestra has performed in Marsh

Harbour and Hope Town on three occa-
sions and it is hoped that next February
the orchestra will again perform in Hope
Town if enough sponsors can be found to
cover transportation costs.

Orchid Bay From Page 18

of Orchid Bay's development, consider
the potential jobs it creates adding that the
project will be built slowly and carefully
enough to mitigate environmental impacts.
Mr. Symonette said that there needs to be a
balance between what we make provisions
for today and what we leave for our future
generations to deal with.

Minister swears in Junior Councillors
A Junior Council is formed at Abaco Central High School
E By Samantha V. Evans
A pilot program called Local Govern-
.4 'ment Junior Council has been initiated by
Government to stimulate the interest of
youth in local government and national
politics. The program is being introduced
at two schools on Grand Bahama, one on
Andros, one on San Salvador, one on Ber-
ry Islands and Abaco Central High School.
The program is specifically for students in
grades 10, 11 and 12 to learn more about
local government and will run until April
2011. It will then be evaluated to see what
modifications need to be made before it is
introduced to all high schools
Nine persons are elected to become ju-
nior councillors for the remainder of the
school year. The student body needs to se-
lect persons who will do a good job. They
will sit in local government meetings and
come up with two projects they would like
to undertake.
Students interested in being involved
in the program were nominated at the end
of September. After five weeks of civics
government is initiating a pilot junior local government program in six high schools in the Ft,,It n Islands. Abaco Central training under the guidance of the able lo-
ool was chosen as one of the schools in this pilot program. Students wanting to run for office had to campaign. Then elec- cal coordinator Phillipa Farrington, the

The swearing-in followed the election

By Samantha V. Evans
On Election Day, November 4th, the
candidates for Junior C ouncillors at Abaco
Central High School were excited as the
day they had been working hard for had
finally come. The students campaigned
for the week since their nomination. The
candidates were excited and some of them
even sought the assistance of fellow stu-
dents to campaign for them.
The students voted in three different
polling divisions. The grade 10 students
voted in polling division one, the grade
eleven students in polling division two
and the twelfth graders in polling division
three. The polls opened at 9:30 a.m. and
closed around 2 p.m. The candidates were
the first ones to vote followed by the other
students. After the polls closed, the count-
ing began. The candidates were given the

final results the following day.
Some of the candidates were very hum-
bled by the opportunity to take part in this
pilot program. In fact, one candidate stated
that she was humbled by the positive re-
sponses she received from students while
another was very touched by the love and
support received as a new student to the
island and school.
After all of the late nights preparing for
election day and the campaigning had end-
ed, the day finally came for the students to
learn who was successful in obtaining Ju-
nior Councillor seats. The official swear-
ing-in ceremony was held on Friday morn-
ing at the school. Present at the ceremony
was the Minister of Local Government, the
Hon. Byron Woodside with his team.
The moment the candidates were wait-
ing for finally came: the naming of the suc-

cessful Junior Councillors. They were Bri-
nique Bowleg of grade 12, Rashae Burrows
of grade 12, Alvonell Greene of grade 10,
Aisha Jones of grade 10, Damara McIn-
tosh of grade 11, Melik Moultrie of grade

10, Kendice Murray of grade 11, Khadijah
Stuart of grade 11, and Payton Stubbs of
grade 10. Each of the students gave a thank
Please see Election Page 4

hF ie 1th, 11th and 12th grade students of Abaco Central High School voted on Novem-
ber 4for nine junior councillors. The councillors will choose two projects that they will
have to do, one for the school and the other for the community. The program is to teach
students about how government works and to encourage students to be involved in their
community and eventually in government at both the local level and the national level.

The voting procedure for Junior Councillors was the same as m government elections.
Students in each polling division did a preliminary counting of votes. Shown here is an
adult poll worker calling out the names on each ballot. Then the ballots were sent to the
Chief Polling Officer, Dr. Lenora Black, for the official results.

School election followed rules of national elections

you speech including the two unsuccessful
candidates. The school prefects then sang
a dynamic school song written by Principal
Jones which was an upbeat song of school
The Minister spoke to the students say-
ing how moved and inspired he is by the
students of the Abaco Central High School.
These students have renewed his faith in
youth. Being on Abaco had affirmed for
him that all is not lost with the youth. They
have affirmed that the youth are the future
and they are being well prepared. The spir-
it and excitement displayed by these young
people was explosive.
He told the Junior Councillors that lead-

uiciait aullot oxes were usea at Aoaco
Central High School for the election of
Junior Councillors. This student is com-
pleting her voting process. The candidates
took their campaign seriously handing
out flyers, putting up posters, had t-shirts
made and even had buttons and banners.

ership is a great responsibility and that
they are now challenged to rise to the oc-
casion to deliver the platforms they have
Min. Woodside stated that he entered
politics for three reasons: to serve his
country, to fulfill what he believes is his
calling and to leave an inheritance for his
great-grandchildren. He encouraged the
leaders to continue believing in self and
live out the purpose that God has put in
them. He hopes to hear their names again
in the not too distant future in some other
great way or doing some other great work.
After his presentation, each of the Ju-
nior Councillors was sworn into office,
made the oath of office and received their
certificate as Junior Councillors.
Several officials spoke to the students,
encouraging them and exhorting them to
do a good job. Chief Councillor, Cubell
Davis, spoke on behalf of the Central Ab-
aco District Council and pledged $1500
towards the first project of the junior coun-
Dr. Lenora Black told the candidates
that they must represent their school,
country, community, and district well.
She explained that the electoral process
she observed the previous day gave the
youth a great understanding of the voting
process. Dr. Black charged the councillors
to remember their platforms after they are
sworn in, to remember those who support-
ed them and work together. She requested
that the two students who were unsuccess-
ful be allowed to remain closely associated
with the nine junior councillors and given
observer status.
Edison Key, MP for South Abaco, stat-
ed that these young people have made them
all proud and it is clear they have been
called to serve. They have been successful-

ly elected by their peers. Therefore, they
owe it to them to serve well, with integ-
rity, honesty and enthusiasm. He told the
councillors that their success in this office
will determine if they will move to the next
level of service. He further told them that
they have a wonderful opportunity to work
with and observe seasoned councillors so
they must make the best of it.
Administrator Cephas Cooper stated
that he is so impressed with the students
as he had watched the election process the
previous day. He is proud of all of them
and has faith that the nine elected candi-

dates will represent well. He added that
where these students go depends on their
drive and motivation. The success of their
two projects depends on them.
Principal Jones stated that this is a mile-
stone in the life of this school. He stated
that three words he loves to use are new,
first and milestone and all three words can
be used to describe this occasion.
Phillipa Farrington has observed the ju-
nior councillors for the past five weeks and
can attest to their passion. She hopes that
this same passion will continue as they be-
gin to serve with integrity.

After the election for the junior council at Abaco Central High School, each of the elected
councillors and the two who were not elected gave thank you speeches to their class-
mates. The whole election process duplicated the national election procedures.

Fire Management was topic of seminar

By Timothy Roberts
The Nature Conservancy, in coordina-
tion with the Bahamas National Trust and
Friends of the Environment, conducted a
seminar on fire management in the Wild-
land Urban Interface to educate community
firefighters and interested persons on how
to assess and manage forest fires, espe-
cially in circumstances where homes are
Chris Bergh, Director of Coastal and
Marine Resilience at The Conservancy's
Florida Keys office, introduced a group of
experts in forestry management and pre-
scribed or controlled burning to share on
the subjects of fire management and opera-
tions, sizing up situations, strategy an ac-
tion plans, setting up a triage or priority

management tactics and safety.
Volunteer firefighters from across Ab-
aco, along with firemen from the airport
and Police Department as well as persons
with vested interests in larger properties
including Schooner Bay, Winding Bay and
Baker's Bay were invited to this seminar
held on November 5 and 6. The seminar
consisted of a two-hour lecture and a day
of field-related activities.
Mr. Bergh said the Florida Keys and
Abaco share many similar qualities in the
rock land pine forests and this program is
based on a similar one conducted in the
Bringing perspective to the importance
of managing our forest resources, Mr.
Bergh said they have about 2000 acres of

rock land pine forest in the Keys, and the
largest forest of this kind in the U.S. is
found in the Everglades at 20,000 acres.
The Bahamas, he said, has 350,000 acres
of rock-land pine forests.
Prescribed or controlled burning is a tool
used by forestry agents to reduce or elimi-
nate fuel such as bracken fern on the forest
floor and is useful in mitigating fire hazards
to homes that are built in close proximity
to them. The Caribbean Pine tree found on
Abaco and other islands in The Bahamas
thrive and propagate through fires.
On Saturday the participants were given
field exercises to help them understand
the practical application of the techniques
and tactics learned from the lectures. They

were split into groups of four and each giv-
en scenarios to analyze and make a plan of
action. The group conducted similar rou-
tines in Spring City and the Marsh Harbour
International Airport.
The group was given a hands-on dem-
onstration on how to use a slip-on engine
(an engine and tank that can be slipped on
to the back of a truck and used for putting
out spot fires) and learned how a fire tank-
er works. The slip-on engine was donated
through The Nature Conservancy.
While at present prescribed burning is il-
legal, the new Forestry Act has provisions
for it which will come into effect in early

-r mk 1- ,
The fire management seminar began with classroom instruction before the field work.
Normally these seminars would have controlled fire bums. But at present the law pro-
hibits controlled burns. Instructing the group ofZachary Prosah, Florida Fire Manager.

The group attending the seminar hosted by The Nature Conservancy were presented with
several scenarios that they had to consider. Then the group would discuss various courses
of action. Here they are in Spring City that is surrounded by pine woods. Since equipment
is limited, strategies have to thought out to save the most important structures when fire
threatens. The group included Bahamas National Trust wardens from several islands as
well as Abaco people involved when fire threatens. In the foreground is Chris Bergh of
The Nature Conservancy.

Auskell Holds Health Fair in Hope Town

By Jennifer Hudson
The Auskell Medical Clinic, in its con-
tinued efforts to reach out into the com-
munity, conducted a Health Fair and Fun
Run Walk in the park at Hope Town on
October 30th. Joining Auskell Medical in
sponsoring the event were Baptist Medical,
represented by Rose Rahming, Hope Town
Clinic and the Concerned Citizens Watch
of Hope Town.
The event began with the 2010 Second
Annual Fun Run Walk over a two and a
half mile distance from the upper public
dock to the T junction. Approximately 35

persons participated and funds raised from
the registration fees were earmarked for
work by the Concerned Citizens Group in
the community. One of its goals is to raise
money to build an apartment for the nurse
to live in above the clinic building that is
under renovation.
Trophies and ribbons for all categories
were presented. The winners in the differ-
ent categories were as follows:

Trust donates to Friends

The Bahamas Nation-
al Trust has donated
rope for the mainte-
nance of moorings at
sensitive areas in the
Pelican Cay Land
and Sea Park and
other areas with ex-
tensive reefs. These
include the north
end of Guana Cay
and the Fowl Cays.
The moorings are for
boats to use to keep
them from anchor-
ing on coral which
is very destructive to
the coral. Friends of
the Environment has
placed these moor-
ings but the lines and
hardware have to be
replaced as they be-
come worn. iwinll

Baptist Health gave extra awards in the
more senior categories and Lucille Russell
was especially congratulated for not only
completing the walk but coming in first at
age 74 years.
In excess of 100 people attended the
health fair to take advantage of the many
testing services offered and to hear about
where the various offshore medical institu-
tions are willing to take them for treatment
not available on Abaco and hear what their
goals are for Abaco in the future. Free
blood pressure and glucose testing was

done by Nurse Sands of the Hope Town
Clinic while, in addition to those tests, the
Auskell Medical Clinic did free cholester-
ol and hemoglobin testing.
Janette Martin-Isaacs, a Registered
Nurse, coach and personal trainer gave a
very well received presentation on Well-
ness. She focused on lifestyle illnesses and
the benefits of regular fitness activities.
This was followed by a fitness demonstra-
tion using exercise balls and stretch bands.
Fifteen-minute free stress massages were
enjoyed by many who attended.
Also on hand was Glennett McKinney,
Speech Pathologist from Freeport, who
will be making regular visits to the Aus-
kell Clinic for consultations.
Persons who attended the health fair
not only got the chance to see how well
their bodies are functioning by the various
free tests offered, they also received much
valuable information on keeping their bod-
ies fit and well and went away armed with
many quality give-aways such as stress
balls, pens and breast cancer awareness
wrist bands.
The presenters at the Health Fair were
very pleased and impressed with the inter-
est shown by the participants.

School News

Super Wednesday
By Mirella Santillo
Education and celebration, such were
the dual purposes of this year's Super
Wednesday, October 27th, at Abaco Cen-
tral High School. No classes were held,
but it was a day of practical lessons taught
by members of the community: a pastor,
a nurse, a social worker and a policeman.
The super day concept was created three
years ago as a day of practical learning,
of gathering and fun. Overcoming Goliath
was the theme of this Super Wednesday.

Super Wednesday was organized and
coordinated by Guidance Counselor Kim-
berley Rahming, who enrolled teachers
and students to make it a special event. The
first hour was devoted to worship through
prayers and singing under the leadership
of teachers Agatha Simms, Stacia Pitt and
Princess Williams.
Pastor Deion Gibson addressed the topic
talking about his sometimes out-of-control
youth, advising the students not to do what
he had done but to try to overcome their
"Goliaths." The three giants to overcome
in someone's life were idolatry, immoral-

Students clean around their school

Fifty Junior Anchors and Discovery Club members of Central Abaco Primary School
took part in the Friends of the Environment cleanup campaign on October 20. Since the
school is located in the Central Pines community, the students cleaned the area di,c, di
surrounding the school and along Forest Drive. Some of the groups even picked up trash
from side streets in the surrounding areas. As a result of their efforts, more than 10 large
bags of trash were collected. Accompanying the students were the leaders of both clubs:
Anastasia Dawkins and Neulessa Major.

ity and violence. He elaborated on each
topic and when speaking about violence,
he approached the subject of the relation-
ships between Bahamian and Haitian stu-
dents, asking the students to put their dif-
ferences aside.
Traneka Williams, a registered nurse
and midwife, carried a basket of fruits as a
hint of the "healthy life style" she wanted
the group to adopt. Her advice on how to
stay fit for life addressed diet, exercise and
the avoidance of addictive substances. She
dwelled on the food issue, recommending a
diet of whole grains, vegetables and fruits
especially local fruits. Exercise and control
your weight, she insisted. "Prevention is
better than cure. A healthy life style will
help you grow up free of chronic diseases,
such as diabetes and heart disease," she
Kimrice Miller with the Department of
Social Services enlightened the assembly
on the role of Social Services in the com-
munity. Its role is to provide empower-
ment, protection, team building and to help
people experiencing problems and outlined
the various assistance programs. Social
Services provides rehabilitation services
and counseling especially for younger peo-
ple referred by schools or parents.
Detective Johnson talked to the students
about "law abiding citizens." He detailed
the duties of a citizen, among these to re-
spect the law and report illegal activities.

He approached the subject of gang vio-
lence and warned about bullying. He also
talked about the various career possibilities
offered within the Police Force, planting
the seed of a possible career in law en-

awards top students
By Canishka Alexander
Students of St. Francis de Sales School
were honoured in two separate awards cer-

place was the primary school ceremony.
The students were awarded for numerous
accomplishments as Shanals Johnson, se-
nior mistress, called them to receive their
awards from their former teachers.
That afternoon the awards ceremony for
the high school students took place. Special
awards were given to Octavia Dean-McIn-

for producing one of the top three essays;

Anchor Clubs went Trick-a-canning on Halloween


While many were partying and others collecting candy this Halloween, the members of
the Anchor Clubs in Central Abaco went trick-a-canning in Central Pines Estate. The
event began with the students meeting at M&R Food Store. Rainbow Pilot Club members
took them to various sections of the community where they knocked on doors seeking non-
perishable goods which will be given out to seniors in the community for the Christmas
holiday. Organizer of the event, Neulessa Major, stated that the event is always a great
success and expressed gratitude to those residents who gave so graciously. The Anchors
participating were from Abaco Central High School, St. Francis de Sales and the Junior
Anchors of Central Abaco Primary.

Lumbering operation may begin a new industry

By Timothy Roberts
A new sawmill operation appears set
to take advantage of the Abaco pine once
again, not for dimensional lumber (such as
two-by-fours), but rather to create finished
wood products like wood flooring, wall
paneling and crown molding.
Rob Roman, CEO of Lindar Industries
Ltd, says he is currently waiting on final
approvals by the Ministry of the Environ-
ment as that ministry will be setting in
place the regulations by which his business
will be governed under the Forestry Act.
The Ministry will regulate what areas the
company will be allowed to harvest. He
plans, at that time, to hold a town meeting
to speak to the community about his busi-
ness and answer any questions the public
may have.
Mr. Roman hopes that all his necessary
permissions will be ready by December.
Bahamas Agricultural and Industrial Cor-
poration has granted Lindar 20 acres on the
farm road south of Snake Cay. He expects
to employ about 10 persons initially. He
suspects there will be further opportuni-
ties for individuals and businesses to ben-
efit through trucking, cutting, value-added
manufacturing and more.
He would like to see his business devel-
op and expand its products to include cabi-
net doors and wooden doors for homes but
would also like to encourage other busi-
nesses to get involved and do value-added
manufacturing themselves.
The company's intentions are to selec-
tively harvest pines that are no less than
seven inches in diameter four feet above

ground, not to clear-cut large areas of
land. It will consider other trees as time
goes on, such as exotics, semi-hardwood,
hardwood and deciduous trees.
Mr. Roman will be seeking permission
to retrieve downed trees from other islands
that are clearing the land for use anyway.
The company would ship them to Abaco to
mill them here.
Mr. Roman gained insight and interest
in the industry while he was a contractor
and consultant for a Canadian sawmill
company. He is married to a Bahamian
and has lived in Nassau for the last 10
His other business, Infrastructure Ba-
hamas, helped create the infrastructure
for Serenity Point and was also contract-
ed for the relocation of the navigational
aids at the Marsh Harbour International

The Abaco pine forests have not been cut since 1967 when Owens Illinois completed its
pulpwood operation on Abaco. Because of the terrain, it was not possible to replant that
is normally done elsewhere to allow for the regrowth of the forest. However, the company
went through the forest marking the five healthiest trees per acre. These were left as seed
trees for regrowing the forest. This is a picture of the woods before Owens Illinois began

Educators attend a
two-day workshop
By Samantha V. Evans
Educators of both primary and high
schools from the government schools at-
tended a two-day workshop on October
25-26. Teachers and administrators met
at St. Andrews Methodist Church Hall in
Dundas Town for the professional devel-
opment seminar.
Before the workshop sessions began,
Rev. Marie Neily, the new pastor of St.
Andrews Methodist Church, brought a
motivational message telling the teachers
that educating children is a calling that no
one can adequately pay them for. They
must perform their duties with excellence.
Teaching is not an easy job but one that
calls for them to be passionate. She stated
that children are impressionable so teach-
ers must set the right examples.
Presenter Roberta Lindsay gave an
overview of writing skills. As the head
marker of the GLAT national examination
and a writer for the GLAT writing section,

she has seen many inconsistencies in the
writing of students. She encouraged teach-
ers to provide more activities to assist the
students with writing and to teach them the
writing process. Their classrooms should
be creative environments for learning that
encourage students to read.
Presenter George Mills, head marker
for the math section of GLAT, gave an
overview of the math difficulties as seen
on the GLAT exams. Many teachers teach
according to the math text rather than teach
topics. He further encouraged teachers not
to rush over topics but give each topic suf-
ficient teaching time.
Also presenting was Ronnie Henderson,
head social studies marker for the GLAT
exam. She too went over deficiencies in
this subject area and gave teachers tips on
how to better teach the students. Teach-
ers must be prepared to work together if
students are to obtain better scores. Many
questions on the GLAT exams come from
all of these grade levels so all teachers
must now take responsibility for prepar-
ing the students. Mrs. Henderson gave the
teachers many creative strategies to make
teaching social studies fun and exciting.
She spoke about integrating social studies
with other subjects.

S.C. Bootle holds
teacher workshop
By Canishka Alexander
According to Principal Huel Moss Jr.,
S.C. Bootle High School was the venue
for a school-based workshop, which took
place on October 26. The educational ven-
ture began with a presentation by Char-
lamae Fernander, assistant director of the
Department of Social Services, who spoke
on The Role of the Teacher as it relates to
the New Child Protection Act.
After undergoing a number of amend-
ments, Ms. Fernander explained that the new
Act came into effect in 2009. She educated
the administration and staff on various parts
of the Act. She also spoke at length on foster
parenting and on the importance of report-
ing child abuse to the relevant authorities. By
the end of the session, the teachers were well
aware of what the Act is all about.
A team from Scotiabank's Marsh Har-
bour branch, Manager Matthew Sawyer,
and Katrina Adderley and Chervain Stu-
art, both Personal Banking Officers, talked
about Personal Financial Excellence in

S.C. Bootle students
do well in spelling bee
By Canishka Alexander
Less than a month after placing sec-

ond and third in the annual District Spell-
ing Bee, S.C. Bootle students represented
their school again in the 8th Grade Spelling
Bee on October 29 at the Marsh Harbour
Church of Christ. According to Huel Moss
Jr., principal, the school had the same
spelling team that had represented them
before on October 5 at St. Andrews Meth-
odist Church Hall.
"This time around, they placed second,
fourth and fifth. Congratulations to Dear-
sharay Brown, who placed second, Chel-
sea Ramotar and Johnlee McIntosh. Coach
Lynette Cooper says the girls have worked
consistently hard during this their last op-
portunity in the competition. Well done,
Dynamic Dolphins," Moss extolled.
He explained that S.C. Bootle has won
two of the District Spelling Bees in the

last three years, so he already had high
expectations for the team. However, even
though the team did not win this year's
competition, Mr. Moss is still satisfied
with their latest accomplishment.

Cherokee Sound
By Lee Pinder
New hut by the Long Dock
Cherokee residents and visitors will now
have a comfortable place to sit and relax
by the Long Dock. Trevor Sawyer and his
crew are erecting a new solid gazebo-type
hut where people can sit and enjoy the cool
breezes and appreciate the beautiful co-
lours of the waters as the tides come and go
at everyone's favourite spot in Cherokee.
This new hut is being paid for by some
very special friends of Cherokee for us all
to enjoy.
What a Catch!
This magnificent specimen of a bonefish
was caught just at sunset off the Long Dock
at Cherokee Sound on a handline with a

piece of conch as bait. Young Pete Da-
vies, a frequent second-home visitor from
Devon, England, along with two of his
school chums were relaxing and watching
a beautiful sunset when this illusive bone-
fish came along and took the line. They
didn't get a chance to weigh him before
they returned him to the shallow waters
around the pier, but he looked to be around
10 pounds a real prize in anyone's book.
All Hallows Eve
Costume Party
The young people's group After Shock
got together with many of Cherokee's resi-
dents for a Costume Party and Dinner on
All Hallows Eve, October 30th. Most of
the costumes depicted animals or people
out of The Bible. I saw angels and a dove, a

whale and a soldier, a king and a Leopard,
a bee and a ladybug, in other words, all
kinds of outfits. The weather was delight-
ful and parents and neighbours sat around
chatting and having a good time. There
were games and candy for the young ones
and a fun time was had by all.

Cherokee Primary School will be hav-
ing a cake and pie raffle sale to raise

Seventh Day Adventist
Church holds concert
By Jennifer Hudson
A concert featuring Christian musi-

soloists and guest artists was presented at
the Marsh Harbour Seventh Day Adventist
Church on October 30th. The goal of the
concert was to raise funds for the church's

each month a team of individuals donates
its time to prepare hot meals to be deliv-

Guest choir was the Hillview Seventh

This choir of approximately 35 very tal-

audience with several varied selections
ranging from the more traditional Chris-

The choir was extremely well drilled and
its beautiful tight harmonies were thrilling.
Other performers during the evening in-

single Alabaster Box before going into her
lesson on living.
Some of the points she shared with the
worshipers included being prepared to give
when it hurts to give, being prepared to
stand in faith when everything is in or-
der and allowing God's agenda to be their
agenda. She eloquently pointed out that the
purpose behind having church is to save
souls and that the church cannot afford to
allow its light to grow dim. She encour-
aged the believers to walk upright so that
they can be bold in their service to God.
Pastor Cornish said that he had chosen
Ms. Winans as one of the guest speakers at
the conference because of her love for her

family. First Lady Carmen Cornish sup-
ported his comments by commending her
family and the Change Ministries church
family for their love and service to God.
According to Pastor Cornish approxi-
mately 200 persons who attended the King-
dom Announcement Conference that week
turned their lives over to Jesus. Moreover,
he declared that a revival had been taking
place at the church even before the confer-
ence began and that from then, souls were
being saved.

Dogs get obedience training and compete

By Linda Wiltfang
The first Agility Excellent title to be
held by a dog in The Bahamas was award-
ed to Splash, a standard poodle owned and
trained by Maureen Koepp, on November
6 during a weekend of training and com-
petition held by the Abaco Dog Training
The weekend of trials and training was
held at the club's park behind the offices of
The Bahamas National Trust with Ameri-
can Kennel Club Judges Bonnie and Daniel
McDonald, a mother and son team from
Brooksville, Florida. The McDonalds
judge, teach and train all over the world.
Mrs. McDonald brought one of her own
dogs, a border collie named Thriller, as a
teaching tool. Thriller was very exciting to
watch, and people stopped by to see her
The Training Club trains for months to

ready themselves and their dogs for a se-
ries of trials each year which include com-
petitions for qualifications at a number of
levels and in different areas including Obe-
dience, Rally and Agility.
The Club has sees a variety of dogs
and breeds, including mixed breeds, bor-
der collies, poodles, golden retrievers and
shelties. Two stars of the weekend were
potcakes named Trixi and Ari. Both are
excellent examples of how time and effort
put into training can create some amazing
Several dogs from Nassau's Dog Club
also attended during the weekend to take
advantage of the competition as well as the
instruction. The judges offered classes at
many levels during the weekend, including
a beginner class for puppies to introduce
new owners to beginner dog training. Even
those owning multiple-titled dogs found


the classes helpful.
By the end of the weekend, almost ev-
eryone who competed had qualified in one
or more areas. Of all the awards given,
the most exciting was awarded to Splash, a
standard poodle who is now the first dog in
the Bahamas to complete a title in Agility
Excellent. Splash is owned and trained by
Maureen Koepp, who is also the instructor
for the classes taught at the Club.
All who participated, watched and com-
peted agreed that it was a wonderful expe-
rience. Everyone benefitted from the ex-
pertise, advice and encouragement given
so generously by the judges.

ules, contact Maureen Koepp at 367-2597.

of nine students at Abaco Central High
School who would become local govern-
ment junior councillors by the end of the
week. At the school's assembly held that
day nine of the eleven nominees presented
their platforms to the school body.
Before each of them took the stage,
Principal Albert Jones told the students the
purpose for the assembly. He told them
that as a part of this process, the grade 10,
11 and 12 students will have an opportuni-
ty to vote for the nine candidates who they

The Abaconian Section B Page 19

believe will best represent them as junior
Ms. Farrington outlined the election
process for the students so that they would
know what is required of them on Novem-
ber 4th Election Day. She stated that the
students will have the same voting rights as
those in a regular election including a valid
voter's registration card, use of the ink for
dipping the finger, marking of the "X"
next to the names of the nine candidates
of their choice, the use of the secret voting
booth and placing the unsigned ballot paper
in the ballot box.
After the candidates presented their plat-
forms Roscoe Thompson and Cay Mills
spoke on behalf of Local Government. Mr.
Thompson encouraged the students to vote
for the candidates they believe will do the
job that they have promised and will do
what is right in a fair manner. He further
encouraged all students in grades 10, 11,
and 12 to vote on November 4th.
Mr. Mills stated that he was the first
president of student government when
Abaco Central was in Spring City. There
were needs that they had then, and 35 years
later the students have it no better as they
are still advocating for some of the same
things such as clean bathrooms, a cabana,
more student activities and a proper track.
He told the junior councillors to strive to
do better for their fellow students as this
job requires them to work and work hard
they must.

Two trainers from Florida worked with local dog owners to teach them how to train their
dogs. By the end of the weekend almost all the dogs had qualified in at least one area.
And one local dog earned Agility Excelllent title, the first dog in The Bahamas to qualify.

News of the Police Department

Police hold
a Walk-a-Thon
By Mirella Santillo
At 6 a.m. on November 6th a group of
approximately 50 people gathered at the
Marsh Harbour Police Station to partici-
pate in a mile and a half walk-a-thon. The
participants had the choice of running or
walking. There were several age category
for the runners: 13-15 years, 16-18, 19 -39
and 40 and over. It was open entry for the
walkers, no age or gender categories.
It was a cool, breezy morning, perfect
for outdoor exercise. The participants left
the Police Station with several police es-
corts following along.
Nurse Treneka Williams was waiting for
the participants to check everyone's blood
pressure while Vogel Williams and Patrice
Charles tallied up the results. A pack of
fresh fruits and beverages were handed out
to each person who passed the finish line.
After the last of the walkers had arrived,
Supt. Curry thanked the participants and the
organizing committee. He explained that the
event, a fund raiser, was meant to strength-
en the partnership between the police and

the community. It was the first of a series of
fund raisers to support community projects.
In the runners' category, boys 13 to 15,
first place went to Fracel Cornish; second
place Jordan Larose, and third place 11-
year old Donald Rolle, the youngest par-
In the girls 13-15 category Valencia
Nesbit came first with Kendice Murray
second and Shantanique Humes, third.
Simon Senat took the first place in the 16
to 18 age group, Wilkins Garcon second and
Troy Seymour third. Only one girl in that
age group participated: Sothame Saint Louis.
Two men were in the 19 to 39 age
group. Frederick Dixon placed first fol-
lowed by Michael Nabbie.
Kenny Muray was the only runner in the
40 and over.
Evelyn Smith was the first of the walkers
to pass the finish line followed by Shandell
Swain and Administrator Cephas Cooper in
third place. Laverne Cooper presented a tro-
phy to 71-year old Viola Johnson for being
the oldest person registered to finish the walk.
One of the organizers, Sgt. Metelus,
said that the proceeds will go to the Green
Arrow Track Club, a sports training club

founded in 2009 by Vogel Williams. The
funds will help students to participate in an
up-coming track meet in Nassau.
Police recruits took

entrance exams
By Canishka Alexander
A notice was issued inviting those inter-
ested in joining the Royal Bahamas Police
Force to sit the Police Entrance Examina-
tion on November 4. The examinations
took place at the Dundas Town Burial So-
ciety Hall. Academic requirements of four
BGCSE subject passes with a grade C or
above were required, but candidates who
did not meet those qualifications were in-
structed to sit and pass the Police Entrance
According to Sgt. Audley Peters, the
subjects that the applicants were tested on
were English, Math, Social Studies, Gen-
eral Knowledge and Intelligence. About 20
people were tested that day.
Those wishing to join the Police Force
were required to meet certain criteria. The
criteria included being a Bahamian citizen
between the ages of 18 and 30, and the can-
didates were also obligated to be of good
character and not possess a criminal record.
However, there are additional steps to
be taken to complete recruitment to the Ba-
hamas Police Force. These include the ap-
plication process, entrance exam, extended
interview, medical exam, background
screening and confirmation.
Some residents called for more than one
session to be held on Abaco in North and
South Abaco locations because many who
were interested missed out on the opportu-
nity to sit the exam. One resident of Green

Turtle Cay said she ended up missing the
math exam because the ferry did not leave
until 8 a.m. Furthermore, she stated that
the exam was held on a weekday, which
makes it difficult for persons to attend. She
now has to travel to Freeport or Nassau to
complete the exam, but it is something she
is willing to do because she is determined
to join the force.
Local police publish
quarterly newsletter
By Canishka Alexander
Under Supt. Noel Curry supervision, the
Abaco district now publishes a Quarterly
Police Newsletter, to his knowledge the
only station that he knows of that does this.
Unlike the content of crime reports,
Supt. Curry said the newsletter is filled
with positive information on the officers'
accomplishments. The newsletter dated
July to September 2010 highlights a num-
ber of stories covered over the last few
months primarily in The Abaconian, while
some of the articles are written by W/Sgt.
Rachel Metelus, Cpl. Dominico Boyd and
W/Cpl. Valerie Brown.
In one of the newsletter's columns, there
is a list of upcoming events including an
Abaco District Police Ball and Police in
Concert that will be held at a date to be an-
nounced and a Children's Christmas Party
on December 18. Informational and safety
tips are interspersed throughout its pages.
Toward the back of the newsletter are
poems, jokes, anniversary and birthday
greetings, get-well wishes, death notices
and congratulatory remarks.
The next publication is scheduled for
December 31.

The police organized a Walk-a-thon on November 6. Participants could either walk or
run. About 50people entered. This is the scene just before the start of the race. The event
was the first fund raiser of several as the police want to assist local organizations.

Cervical cancer is preventable

By Dr. James Hull
Disease prevention is one of the great-
est goals in medicine and it is for me as
well. Most of us would be very excited
if we were to read a headline stating:
"Early detection method discovered
which will prevent all cancers deaths" or
possibly "No one will die from cancer
again." What a wonderful thought!
We may not be able to prevent all can-
cer deaths, but we can prevent deaths in
women from cervical cancer. What most
people do not realize is that cervical can-
cer was the number 1 killing cancer in
women not more than 60 years ago. A
Greek-born Doctor, Georgios Papaniko-
laou, felt that he could diagnosis cervical
cancer by looking at cells he gathered
from women and he was right. Through
many evolutions we now have the mod-
ern Pap smear. The way I like to look at
the Pap smear is it is a small piece of the
puzzle of preventing all cancer-related
So why do women resist getting one?
I have heard many reasons and not one
of them is a good enough reason to die!
Through their sexual lives, women will
contract the Human Papillomavirus
which increases a woman's risk of devel-

oping cervical cancer dramatically. The
Human Popillomavirus is a family of vi-
ruses some of which cause simple skin
warts which is why women can catch
them so easily. Understanding this virus
has led us to a new development in the
prevention of cervical cancer, a vaccine.
Remember in my last article I talked
about the Flu vaccine. Well, here is a
vaccine which can help prevent cancer.
It is recommended that women from the
age of 9-26 receive the vaccine. They
should also have a Pap smear within
three years of starting to have sexual re-
lations or by the age of 21, whichever
comes first.
We are at the dawn of a whole new
era in the prevention of cancer deaths.
Unfortunately, modern medicine can't
prevent all cancers and cancer-related
deaths, but cervical cancer is one cancer
we are understanding more and more.
I can't say this often enough. "Please
have your daughters vaccinated against
this cancer, and to all women please get
your pap smears." I can promise you if
you do these two things, cervical cancer
will become a cancer we only read about
in text books but NEVER see.

Soccer draws large
crowds of spectators
By Canishka Alexander
Over the past several months, soccer
teams have been meeting regularly at the
track and field facilities adjoining Abaco
Central High School. According to Jeffrey
Victor, vice president of the Abacom Foot-
ball United Club, three games are taking
place regularly. Game take place with the
40 and over men's teams from Pigeon Pea,
Sand Banks, the Medics from Marsh Har-
bour and Treasure Cay, the Bahama Star
Farm and Hope Town.
The sport, which seems to be growing
in popularity even among the women, is
known to draw a large crowd every Sun-
day. Mr. Victor was not surprised at the
"Soccer is known as a beautiful game;
it's also known as a world game," he
stated. "On Abaco we've been fortunate
to draw a crowd of this magnitude out
here. We'd like to keep it going. We wish
we could have a better park out here, but
we're working with local government, the
Murphy Town Township, the police and
with the community."
During the previous week, women's
teams from The Mudd and Sand Banks
competed against each other. There is an-
other women's team called the Pigeon Peas
Lady Strikers team, and they are scheduled
to play when the women compete again.
Mr. Victor says they want soccer to get
even bigger. "We know there's been some
talk about it not being controlled or not be-
ing organized, but this is just something
we're doing before we form a league."
He said as soon as the tournament is fin-
ished, then the league will begin. Six men's
teams will participate along with the three
women's teams. There will also be three
church teams participating, but the church-
es will compete amongst themselves, and
the women's teams will compete against
each other. So although it is one league,
he said it will be three leagues within one.
As for the Abacom Football United
Club, it is headed by Malcolm Spicer, pres-
ident. He said they've travelled throughout
the country playing soccer and have been
the sixth time defending champions.
Victor said although many consider the
league as a Haitian league, there are mem-
bers representing almost every community
in Abaco. He said the league is open to
anyone with a willingness to play.
Tennis instructor
holds tournament
By Canishka Alexander
Bobby Russell, a veteran tennis in-
structor, has been holding ongoing tennis
tournaments at Forest Heights Academy,
and on November 3 he was excited to see
how well the students are playing in six
weeks' time. He said the tournaments are
beneficial because it allows the players to
compete against each other and showcase
the skills they have learned over the short
He demonstrated the difference be-
tween the use of low compression tennis
balls and those that are compressed. The
low-compression balls have come in handy
with beginning players because it allows
the ball to stay up longer and gives them
a better chance at hitting the ball. Right
now, his players are between the ages of
5 to 13 years old, and he said it is the big-
gest group he has had since offering tennis
He was also excited about the new pub-
lic tennis court facilities being spearheaded
by the Dundas Town Committee. As he
pointed out, it has been something he has
been looking forward to as he sets and ac-

complishes goals for himself. Mr. Russell
said the players would not only be reward-
ed at the individual tournaments, but that
he was looking to reward them with schol-
arships and give them the opportunity to
play against other tennis players from the
around The Bahamas.

A more sustainable resort model for the Bahamas

By Larry Smith
A new resort community may seem an
extravagance during the worst housing
crunch in more than a half-century, but
developer Orjan Lindroth says his project,
Schooner Bay, is a model of environmental
and fiscal sustainability.
Schooner Bay, a 570-unit village that
recently began construction on Great Ab-
aco Island, The Bahamas, is the first new
urbanist development in this country, says
Lindroth, a long-time student of New Ur-
For a large project, Schooner Bay is
downsized in many respects, starting with
finances: Lindroth carries no debt. The
units, lots and thoroughfares are small.
The project is designed to make a small en-
vironmental footprint. Much of this has to
do with a decision to exclude automobiles.
A car-free village is a radical idea even
in The Bahamas, where life is somewhat
less car-dependent than in the United
States. Historic villages have very narrow
streets, and a car is not necessary. Outside
of the villages, however, roads are de-
signed for high-speed travel.
Street standards in The Bahamas follow
the North American model a mixture of
Canadian and US regulations prevails, ac-
cording to Lindroth. "They wanted a 70-
mile per hour highway coming into the
town. We had a lot of problems at first
because we violated every rule," he says.
"But we pointed out that the Bahamian ver-
nacular had the narrow streets it was only
in recent times that we built differently."
The development team wanted to repli-
cate the character of the compact, historic
harbor towns of the islands, says Galina
Tahchieva, project leader for designer
Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company. "We
really liked them and wanted to create that
character. To leave it car-free was the next
logical step."
In a small island country it is possible
for a development like Schooner Bay to get

the support of a high-ranking official. The
Hon. Earl Deveaux, the nation's minister
of planning and environment, "is famil-
iar with the [New Urbanism] concept and
worked hard to waive a lot of the rules so
that we could build this way," Lindroth
says. "If we had to build to the width of the
North American code, we could not have
created this ambience and character."
The thoroughfares in Schooner Bay are
magnificently narrow, ranging from 6 to
22 feet from side to side. Most are de-
signed for pedestrians, bicyclists and golf
carts, which will be the primary means of
motorized transport. Visitors will store
cars in a parking lot. One neighborhood,
on a ridge above the harbor, will be ac-
cessible to automobiles with keycode ac-
cess. No cars will be allowed in the denser,
mixed-use harbor village, Lindroth says.
Less impervious
The car-free design reduces the need for
impervious streets and driveways and even
garages, allowing for more compact devel-
opment with less worry about runoff. Most
rainwater will percolate through swales
and pervious pavement. Natural vegetation
will reduce the need for mowing and main-
Schooner Bay will be built on 80 acres.
Another 240 acres will remain as perma-
nent open space in the form of tropical
forest, harbor, fields, dunes and beach. A
section of virgin forest, habitat for an en-
dangered parrot, will be connected to the
center of the harbor village. Beachfront
houses will be set back beyond the "toe"
of the dunes, far enough away that they
will not be visible from the beach.
"Preservation is good business," Lin-
droth notes. "We have something that we
couldn't replicate if we tried, and I don't
have to build it. My work is three-quarters
done," he says in reference to open space

requiring little or no infrastructure.
Instead of using air conditioners with
noisy compressors a problem in resorts
like Florida's Seaside, causing residents to
shut their windows and use even more air
conditioning houses in Schooner Bay
will be cooled with quiet geothermal sys-
tems. Tree shading, strategically placed
windows, verandas and cross-ventilation
are designed to reduce the need for me-
chanical cooling.
Some of the open space will be used for
food production. Most food in the Bahamas
is imported from the mainland, Lindroth
notes, but he is intent on fostering mean-
ingful agriculture. Plans include a mar-
ketplace for produce, a cannery and other
food processing. "Locally produced food
is far more interesting," he says. "And it
also creates small business opportunities."
Residents will be allotted garden space in
the farm area.
Responding to
global warming
Building an environmentally aware har-
bor village in the Bahamas raises the ques-
tion of sustainability amid rising sea levels
and global warming. Schooner Bay takes
this threat into account in several ways,
according to Tahchieva. First, digging the
harbor out means that the low-lying village
will be raised. First floors will be a mini-
mum of 10 feet above sea level, and many
will be much higher. Dunes will be reveg-
etated and left undisturbed. Houses will be
built with fortified construction of poured
concrete with steel and plywood roofs.
Within the village, the harbor serves as
the focal point of the community. Shops,
restaurants, offices, and inns line the har-
bor's edge. The idea of the five-minute
walk from house to town center has been
expanded to include the countryside and
nature. "New Urbanism has long focused
on the 5-minute walk to the village as a
core principle," says Lindroth. "Here, we

have a 5-minute walk not only to the vil-
lage, but also to the forest, the farm and
the beach."
Many traditional architectural designers
well known to new urbanists are involved
in Schooner Bay. These include Steve
Mouzon, Lew Oliver, Julie Sanford, Alli-
son Ramsey Architects, Marianne Cusato,
and DPZ. Many of the building ideas have
been used in other new urban projects and
modified here. Small apartment buildings
in the form of mansion units, for example,
are called "veranda homes" in Schooner
Bay. These are large houses, wrapped by
a porch, that contain multiple units. Clus-
ters of small cottages, laid out similarly
to Rosewalk in Seaside, are also used ex-
tensively. DPZ's carpet cottages, dense
clusters of connected cottages with court-
yards originally designed as affordable
housing for New Orleans will be built
in Schooner Bay for the first time. They
have been named Captain's Cottages.
Live-work units, which are usually at-
tached as townhouses, will be built in a
mixture of stand-alone and attached units.
"This is typical of Harbor Island (a histor-
ic village in the Bahamas) where the com-
mercial buildings look like single-family
homes with a laid back character," says
Tahchieva. "Long strings of attached live-
work units would have been foreign to this
area. But in height and detailing, we have
made [the detached live-works] more ur-
ban than the other houses."
Most housing will be 1 to 2 stories -
2.5 stories at the village center. This low-
rise form of small buildings on very tight
thoroughfares is distinct to the Bahamas.
The style can be summarized as "the
Bahamian cottage vernacular," a form
dissected by Mouzon in his 2008 Charter
Award-winning book, A Living Tradition:
Architecture of the Bahamas. The book,

published under the patronage of Lindroth
and others, was one of two Charter Awards
with roots in Schooner Bay. Andrew von
Maur, an architect at Schooner Bay's orig-
inal 2006 charrette and a professor at An-
drews University, brought students back to
do a regional plan for the Bahamas. That
plan won a 2009 Charter Award.
Resort and
full-time village
Lindroth hopes Schooner Bay will be
mostly a full-time community with only
about one-third of the housing used as sec-
ond homes.
The first charrette produced designs that
were expected to sell for a fraction of the
typical Bahamas resort housing most-
ly built on the sprawl model, with large
units selling for more than a million dol-
lars around Nassau and other towns, Lin-
droth says. After the financial shock in
2008, architects further reduced the size of
units, which will start at about $300,000
for a two-bedroom house and its lot, he
says. "The town plan allows us to go from
breaking new ground in price to an even
lower level," Lindroth says.
Lindroth describes a simple strategy
for uncertain times: build places that are
worth caring about and do so without rely-
ing on traditional bank financing. The ab-
sence of debt gives him freedom to build at
a slower pace. "You have to buy the land
and get to the point where the project runs
itself on equity," he says. "The market has
a natural rhythm. We can size up or down,
matching our building program to what is
being sold."
Such a system is more sustainable, he
says. "The suburban sprawl model of de-
velopment that we are seeing in the Ba-
hamas is not something I had any confi-
dence in," he explains. "What I did have
confidence in was the idea of a traditional

"One good deed deserves another" so
the saying goes and one Abaco lady is
lucky to be alive and safe today due to a
good deed which was returned. The amaz-
ing thing is that it was returned by a cat!
A year and a half ago Shane, Ruthie
Key-Netabyalek's son, saw a tiny kitten run
across a busy road and hide under his car.
He was able to entice the very frightened
little kitten out and he took it home to his
mother whom he knew loved animals. The
kitten was estimated to be about three weeks
old and needed to be fed with milk from a
dropper every few hours. Ruthie lovingly
tended it and it grew into a beautiful calico
cat. Thinking it was a male, Ruthie's grand-
daughter named it Jerry; however, when it
produced kittens some time later the family
changed the name slightly to Geri and kept
three of her kittens.
One evening recently after Ruthie had
been cleaning her floors with bleach, she
lit a candle as was her habit in order to
get rid of the bleachy smell. Before she
went to bed, she blew out the candle and,
believing that the flame was extinguished,
went to bed. However, the flame had not
been completely extinguished; it reignited
and continued to burn. The candle holder

was standing in a wicker container which,
as the candle burned lower, caught on fire.
The fire then spread to the counter top and
the cabinet above which began to blaze.
Normally, Ruthie sleeps very lightly and
is easily awakened. But the intense smoke
she thinks put her into a deep sleep. About
12.45 a.m. she heard a terrible screeching
sound and felt something clawing at her
back. Her cat, Geri, clawed and clawed
until she awakened her. When Ruthie was
awake, she could hardly breathe for the in-
tense smoke which filled the kitchen.
Fortunately for Ruthie, she never clos-
es her bedroom door; otherwise the cat
would not have been able to get into the
bedroom to awaken her. She grabbed the
large bowl of water and doused the flames,

then continued sponging down all the cabi-
nets which were very hot. "The plastic
paper towel holder had melted, but I am
not moving it. I am leaving it in place as
a reminder never to light a candle again,"
vowed Ruthie, who has also made sure
that she has now replaced the battery in her
smoke alarm.
Ruthie was absolutely amazed at what
her cat did. One hears of dogs saving their
master's lives but to hear of a cat doing it
is more rare. "I never knew a cat could do
that," said the very grateful Ruthie. Kit-
ten Geri's life was saved by Ruthie, and it
certainly showed its appreciation by saving
her life. "She's always had good treatment,
but these days she's getting some very spe-
cial attention," said the grateful Ruthie.

Basketball clinic
teaches fundamentals
By Mirella Santillo
Approximately 40 students from various
schools participated in a weekend of in-
tense basketball training, focusing primar-
ily on the fundamentals of the game from
terminology to moves.
The workshop, which was organized
locally by William "Tony" Davis, was
spread over the weekend of October 28th
to 30th with the first two sessions taking
place at Grace Gymnasium and the third
session on the open air court of Agape
Christian School. There was no playing,
only warm-up exercises and familiarization
with basketball terms, postures and moves
that were repeated over and over until the
students had grasped the concept.
Coach Marvin Henfield, Director of the
Caribbean Sports Agency, came from Nas-
sau with two of his advanced trainees, Da-
vid Capron and Daren Finley, to direct the
workshop. A video of the entire workshop
was taken by David Capron The video will
be placed on an internet site that the stu-
dents can access for further reference.
The Saturday morning training was fol-
lowed by a brief counseling session dur-
ing which Coach Henfield gave advice on
healthy living and safe behavior.

pants paid $15 which was, in turn, given
back to their schools to buy sports equip-
ment. He called the program "six-thirty
six," referring to the six islands he plans

to visit in thirty-six days. Abaco was the
second on the list after South Eleuthera.
Bimini will be next followed by Andros,
North Eleuthera and Exuma.
A follow-up paying workshop, dur-
ing which the students will put in practice
what they learned, is scheduled for Janu-
ary 2011. Coach Henfield was impressed
by the talent he observed among the par-
ticipants and wants to invite the kids to at-
tend a ten- day boot-camp on Eleuthera in
July 2011.
Agape hosted Basket-
ball Tip-off Classic
By Mirella Santillo
The Agape Eagles went undefeated in
all three age categories of the basketball
Tip-off Classic tournament that took place
at Grace Gymnasium during the three-day
weekend of October 21st to 23rd .
It was the first such inter-island event to
be hosted at Agape Christian School. So
successful was the attendance to the tour-
nament that the Eagles' coach and orga-
nizer of the Tip-Off, Wayne Adderley, is
hoping to make it an annual event.
New Providence, Bimini and Moore's
Island were represented competing against
each other and the other Abaco schools that
The competition started Thursday with
games in under 13, under 17 and under 20
categories. The Eagles from Agape Chris-
tian School, an under 13 team from Central
Abaco Primary School, the Marlins from
Abaco Central High School, the Rattlers
from C.I. Gibson High School, the Cru-
saders from S.C. Bootle High School, a se-
nior team from Long Bay School, the Tor-
nadoes from St Francis de Sales School,
Moore's Island All Age School's team
and Youth In Action competed against
each other in nine games that went on well

into the first evening. The tournament
continued the following day starting late
morning, again until late that night. These
games were leading to the semi-finals and
finals that took place on Saturday evening
after more qualification games early after-
noon. All through the competition, every
game in which they participated was won
by the Agape Eagles.
By the time the finals started, the gym-
nasium had filled with fans of all ages.
The determination to win was the cause
of many faults in the three final games so
there were many interruptions for penalty
It was not until midnight that the awards
were finally given to the winning teams
and the MVP by Agape Christian School's

Principal, Cecile Albury, who cheered and
celebrated the victory of her school's team.
Coach Kevin Johnson from C.I. Gib-
son thought the visit from Nassau was a
great experience for the 12 juniors who ac-
companied him. Coach Grathen Robbins
from Bimini flew here with 15 kids. He
mentioned that some of the players already
knew each other after competing in Free-
port, and he thought it was a great event to
maintain the existing friendship and cama-
raderie between the students.
The MVP for C.I. Gibson was Carlos
Kerry and for Bimini, Gregory Goodman.
The Eagles' MVP's were Oswald Parker,
Dantea Thompson and Basil Johnson. Ja-
son Scott was S.C. Bootle's best player.
