Students learn about college programs
College Fair features many college representatives
By Canishka Alexander
This year's College Fair 2010 saw many
new changes. The first had to do with the
retirement of Isobel Sherman, a veteran
educator who organized the event for years
before turning it over to Beverly Rolle, a
S' teacher at Agape Christian School. The
College Fair also took place at a differ-
ent location from New Vision Ministries
This year and is expected to continue taking
place at Agape's Grace Gym.
Among the more familiar colleges and
universities represented, there were three
new institutions present: Livingston Col-
Slege, Flagler University and the Art Insti-
A. tute of Atlanta. Despite the new additions,
Mrs. Rolle was disappointed that BTVI and
Bahamas Baptist Community College did
not have any representatives at the College
Fair. However, some institutions had men-
tioned problems with funding. She is confi-
dent that when a committee is formed, the
event will be bigger and better next year.
On a more positive note, representa-
tives from Bethune-Cookman University,
the College of The Bahamas, Florida Me-
morial University, Humber University,
annual College Fair was held on November 16 at Grace Gym. Thirteen colleges were represented and gave information about Northwood University, Palm Beach At-
hools, courses offered, housing, expenses, scholarships available and qualifications required. The students asked questions and lantic University, St. Thomas University,
brochures and material home to study. 5/w, is the representative from St. Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Savannah College of Art and Design, St.
ing to her are Cecile Albury, Principal of Agape Christian School; Dr. Lenora Black, Abaco's Education Superintendent; and Mary's University and the University of

three students from S.C. Bootle High School in Cooper's Town. Agape Christian School hosted the College Fair this year for the
first time.

Please see College Fair Page 2

Santa made a very early visit to Marsh Harbour on November 20 when the Scurvy Few
Motorcycle Club held its annual Toys for Tots campaign. The club collects new, un-
wrapped Christmas toys that they deliver to needy families just prior to Christmas. The
children were eager to tell him their wishes for gifts under the tree. See story on page 5.

Angels Academy

celebrates One Bahamas


Angels Academy is the only school on Abaco that celebrated One Bahamas. These are
the youngest children in the school performing Ji, ai,,nly and friends. One Bahamas is
a program in schools that promotes unity and nationalpride and showcases Bahamian

By Jennifer Hudson
The students of Angels Academy cel-
ebrated One Bahamas on November 19
with a delightful programme presented
to family members and friends on the
school grounds. This was the school's
first presentation celebrating Our Culture

and Our History as ONE PEOPLE. The
school grounds were patriotically decorat-
ed in swags of the national colours and the
Bahamian flag was raised to the singing of
the National Anthem.

College Fair leaves students motivated

College Fair From Page 1
Tampa attended the event.
Many of the students expressed inter-
est in Livingstone College in North Car-
olina because of the athletic scholarships
that are available. Darian Lightbourne,
S.C. Bootle High School's head girl, was
one of those students. Although she was
not worried about obtaining an academic
scholarship based on her grades, she was
grateful to have the option to pay her way
through school because of her athletic abil-
ity as well. She also visited the College of
The Bahamas and Bethune-Cookman. She
is hoping to major in accounting and mi-
nor in Spanish. All of the colleges offered
these options.
Like Darian, Akeem Adderley of Abaco

Central High School was looking for some-
thing close to home. He talked to the repre-
sentatives of the University of Tampa and
the College of The Bahamas. He is hop-
ingg to pursue a career in the performing
arts, which both institutions offer including
Billy Dajuste, senior counselor for Bet-
hune-Cookman University, said he was
"happy to share information with the great
students of Abaco." According to Mr.
Dajuste there are approximately 84 Baha-
mian students currently enrolled at the uni-
versity and 16 of them are Abaconians. He
said Bahamians are well known and main-
tain a nice presence on campus.
"The experience is awesome, and I've
been coming five years in a row now, and
like I told you, I wouldn't miss this for the

Students were interested in talking to the representatives of the College of The Bahamas.
Many Abaco students attend COB for at least the first two years to keep the expenses

world," he said. "It's a great experience
when I get a chance to speak with students
who are interested in coming to college.
These students are very motivated, and
once I see the motivation coming from
them, it's always an honour for me to help
them to get to the next step. So again, I'll
be here as long as I'm working for Bet-
hune-Cookman, and I guarantee you'll see
me here every year."
Because most of their international stu-
dents are from The Bahamas, Trevor Lew-
is from Florida Memorial University said
that they will continue to attend the College
Then there was St. Thomas University,
where Bahamian-born Andre Lightbourn
is the dean of Enrollment Management.
This was his first time attending the event,
which he described as worthwhile. He said
that any time he is given a chance to speak
with prospective students it is always worth
the time and effort. "We as individuals in

higher education like to see when students
are eager to advance themselves and clear-
ly that has taken place here today," Mr.
Lightbourn explained.
He and other representatives pointed out
that were interested in business, medical
careers, hospitality, aviation and the sci-
ences. Nevertheless, careers in film and
design are becoming more popular among
Bahamian students.
Susan Padilha, assistant director of ad-
missions for the Art Institute of Atlanta,
said that she deals primarily with interna-
tional students and that they have had very
successful students from The Bahamas.
Interestingly, the institute began reaching
out to Bahamian students after they were
discovered by searching the Internet.
Darvin Toussaint of the College of The
Bahamas said their interest was not to sim-
ply promote COB and the programs of-
fered, but to promote education as a whole.

Humber University, located in Toronto, Ontario, was represented at the College Fair.
Most high schools on Abaco had students in the higher grades attend this annual event.

Santa thrilled children at the Toys for Tots event

By Canishka Alexander
Santa made a special visit to Marsh Har-
bour on November 20 during the 13th An-
nual Toys for Tots fund-raising event. He
manages to come yearly during this event
and spends time listening to the children's
wish list for gifts. Once again this year he
made many children happy to know that he
had heard them.
Toys for Tots was held across from
Memorial Plaza. Some of the members of
the Scurvy Few Motorcycle Club Abaco
Chapter organized it to raise funds to buy
toys for needy children. The club members
also ask the public to donate new toys that
can be distributed. Tickets were sold for an
assortment of food items including cotton
candy, hot dogs and hamburgers and for
the bouncing castle.
As always the bouncing castle complete

with a gigantic Sponge Bob that towered
several feet above its entrance was popular
among the children. Sid Dawes, secretary
of the Scurvy Few, accepted tickets and
kept watch over the excited children in the
bouncing castle.
Toys for Tots is actually a separate enti-
ty from the Scurvy Few and is a charitable
organization. He explained that the execu-
tive committee of Scurvy Few is the execu-
tive committee of Toys for Tots. Raising
funds for Toys for Tots is done throughout
the year.
This year was a bittersweet year for the
members as they witnessed the assistance
from almost all of their corporate sponsors
dry up completely because of the econo-
my. Even the donation cans that have been
decorated with the Toys for Tots logo and
placed in business establishments have not
done well in recent
In previous years
one of the members
revealed that the club
purchased $4,500
worth of toys. How-
ever, they are commit-
ted to giving whatever
number of toys that
they are able to pur-
chase this year to the
Department of Social
Services for distribu-
tion in the communi-

A bouncing castle provided fun for the children Inl they wait-
ed to talk with Santa. The funds raised will purchase gifts for
children who are less fortunate.

Mr. Dawes said that
one of the club's other
goals is to do com-
munity service with
regard to the garbage
containers, maps and

benches. Although they charge for the
visitor maps and charge for the advertising
on the benches, the money that is collected
is used to do things within the community.
Sharing some history of how the Scurvy
Club came into existence, Mr. Dawes said
that the Scurvy Few members have been
meeting in Marsh Harbour for 14 years.
The club started with a group of about six
men and currently there are about 12 to 15
members with eight to 10 active members
in town. There is a member in Nassau and
one in Freeport, and also a Florida chapter
that has been established.

Those looking to become part of the
Scurvy Few can meet with the members
"usually on the first Thursday of almost
every month." Interested persons obvi-
ously must be the owner of a motorcycle
and even more importantly be prepared
to donate time. The club is in search of
dedicated people who will be there to work
and be there for the club at all times par-
ticularly when it come to spending time at
events like Toys for Tots.

Santa spent time witn mte cilaren wno visited mm i/nh ne was at Toys for lots on
November 20. The occasion was to raise funds to buy toys for needy children on Abaco.
This yearly event is one way that the Scurvy Few Motorcycle Club of Abaco is working
in the community.

Tribute is
paid to veterans
By Canishka Alexander
On November 14 Bahamians nationwide
paid tribute to those who sacrificed their
lives during World War I and World War
II. A special service was held at Aldersgate
Methodist Church in Marsh Harbour and

Garden where Rev. Charles Carey and the
Boys' and Girls' Brigades entertained the
small gathering with a few musical selec-
tions that are symbolic of Remembrance
Remembrance Day was formerly known
as Armistice Day and was celebrated on

November 11. There were not many in
attendance at this significant event. Rev.
Carey thanked Bertram Knowles for his at-
tendance on behalf of the Governor Gen-
eral, Sir Arthur Foulkes.
Commenting on the lack of attendance,
Rev. Carey said that in recent years, inter-
est and participation had begun to dwindle
because of a decline in uniformed youth
organizations. However, he was proud
to state that the Boys' and Girls' Brigades
have continued in their commitment to
honouring our nation's heroes and have
led Abaco in the celebrations for nearly 20

plane in 1980.

Cancer Society opens
its Christmas Shop
By Jennifer Hudson
Once again this year, following on its
success of last year, the Abaco Cancer So-
ciety has opened its Christmas Shop in the
old John Bull premises next to Mangoes.
The shop opened on November 18 and has
had a steady flow of patrons since. In fact,
there were people waiting for the doors to

open on the 18th. Everyone loves its at-
tractive, very reasonably priced, high qual-
ity merchandise, the majority of which is
brand new. There are so many wonderful
choices for Christmas gifts from scented
candles, jewelry boxes, ceramic and glass-
ware, bags, wraps, books, DVD's and
CD's to framed prints and jewelry. One
wall is completely covered with decora-
tions for the Christmas tree which would
be the envy of all.

Organizer of the store, Marjolein Scott,
has been very touched by the outpouring
of generosity this year from persons out-
side The Bahamas who have never been
to Abaco but have heard of the work of
the Abaco Cancer Society and want to sup-
port its great work. Many items have been
received from abroad including pictures,
prints, a wonderful seahorse made by a

Blue Hole may cause road to relocate

The Lost Reel Blue Hole is located beside the Capt. Ernest Dean Highway between the
Snake Cay turnoffand the Wilson City power plant turnoff It is not visible from the road
but a dip in the road has been observed at that spot for some time. Prior to the new gen-
erators being moved to the site from Marsh Harbour, a bypass road was constructed by
BEC around the Blue Hole as officials felt the heavy loads could cause a major problem.
This temporary road can be seen on the left of the picture. More i c,rily the dip has
become more pronounced. Now a drilling rig has determined that the rock sturcture on
the west side is solid i iti the east side is porous and spongy. As a result, the road may
be relocated slightly to the west.

The Cancer Society Abaco Branch has once again opened a Christmas gift shop in Marsh
Harbour to raise funds for its programs to assist Abaco women with the costs of preven-
tive care in the fight against breast cancer and travel and medical costs for those Abaco
women who have cancer. The shop has mostly new items, many donated by artists and
craftsmen. The response by the public is very encouraging.

Local events show initiative

Abaco people have a remarkable capac-
ity to highlight their past, enjoy the present
and look to the future. We are just leav-
ing the quiet fall season when we have
few visitors and no community events of
consequence. However, for an island with
a base population of 16,000 there are a
remarkable number of home-grown festi-
vals and events for everyone to enjoy. It is
extraordinary that many of these programs
originate in towns with populations of 500
residents or less.
Green Turtle Cay and Hope Town are
starting the holiday season with public
events. Green Turtle is just concluding
a weekend of events including a public
Thanksgiving dinner, a golf cart parade
and a Saturday all-day fair. Hope Town
is holding its 12th year of its popular box
cart races. These Hope Town races and the
Green Turtle Cay events are well worth the
open admission, but for off-island folks it
requires a ferry ride. Food and drink are
sold to raise money for their town's youth
and other programs.
Abaco's largest one-day event, the
Christmas Festival, will be staged on De-
cember 4 in Marsh Harbour. It lasts from
mid-day to late that night. It is estimated
that several thousand people, possibly
more, enjoy this pre-Christmas festival.
The crowd during the day is made up of
families and children with many persons
coming from the cays, taking advantage of
ferry schedules. Evening attendance is pri-
marily adults from mainland Abaco as well
as the far ends of the island.
The day and evening hours are often
interspersed with music, dance, Judo and
Karate demonstrations, sometimes a dog
show, fashion shows, school and church
bands, praise dancers and other entertain-
ment the Festival organizers can find. Af-
ter dark music will be provided this year
by Her Majesty's Prison Pop Band.
It is early in the growing season, but
booths will be staffed by farmers with fresh
produce. Artisans, craftsmen and serious
home-hobby individuals will be displaying
and selling their best efforts, homemade
jams, jellies, garnishes, candies, home-
made coconut ice cream, cakes and other

Marsh Harbour, Abaco, Bahamas

Abaco has a wide variety of artists; some
paint, some carve, some create jewelry,
others work with wood making model
boats, driftwood picture frames, bowls and
other items made from native hardwoods.
Booths will offer a variety of authentic
Bahamian cuisine, complete meals with
peas 'n rice and macaroni and cheese.
Many snacks will also be offered.
Besides the usual assortment of soft
drinks, an adult bar will be offering beer
and heavier beverages. A little snooping
through the stalls may turn up someone of-
fering a variety of native bush teas along
with a lesson on bush medicine.
Santa will be giving gifts to children in
the afternoon. For the first time, the Rota-
ry Club is organizing a float parade during
the day. Evenings have traditionally ended
with a Junkanoo rush and a Christmas tree
lighting ceremony.
Other holiday events include:
* A boat parade at Green Turtle Cay on
December 11
* A Christmas Cantata at Marsh Harbour
Gospel Chapel on Decemberl2
* The North Abaco Christmas Festival
December 13 at the Treasure Cay Primary
* A Christmas Concert at the St John the
Baptist Anglican Church in Marsh Har-
bour on December 15
* The annual Police Christmas party for
children on December 18 at the Marsh
Harbour police station.
* Cherokee celebrates on Christmas Eve

in the Methodist Church yard with a large
decorated Christmas tree laden with chil-
dren's gifts. The wrapped gifts were placed
there earlier by parents. When Santa ar-
rives on his sleigh, he hands out the gifts
to the assembled children. A public dinner
is held afterwards in the school with dona-
tions requested.
Christmas tree lighting ceremonies are
planned for many of our townships. Check
with a member of your town committee to
see if a Christmas tree lighting program is
scheduled. Many churches have programs
featuring the Christmas story.
Hope Town is scheduling a New Year's
Eve Junkanoo Rush which includes their
school children. On January 1 the social
focus shifts to Green Turtle Cay which
holds an afternoon Junkanoo parade. The
town will be crowded and ferries will run
all day. This is an opportunity to see the
colorful Junkanoo costumes in daylight as
opposed to the traditional nighttime Junk-
anoo rush. Sidewalk vendors will offer a
wide variety of food.
All of these upcoming holiday events
and the many others appearing in the
months that follow are a tribute to Abaco's
resourcefulness and drive. Most of the
events are initiated in small towns to enter-
tain and raise funds for various community
projects. Merchants work to make their
shops appealing which draw customers.
Our progressive residents carry this theme
further by making their entire town more
appealing to attract foreign and domestic
visitors who spend money.

Snubbed by Nassau again
An employment advertisement appeared
in the Nassau Guardian on November 22
requesting applications for an ambulance
driver for government's emergency ser-
vice on Abaco. The Nassau Hospital Au-
thority was contacted on November 25 and
asked if the position should be advertised
locally. We were told "not at this time,"
but they would keep us in mind for future
Apparently it had been decided that
Abaco does not have any one qualified or
interested so there is no need to pursue
Abaco exposure for this job.
As Abaco expands, various government
jobs will become available that should be
advertised for local applicants. When our
new airport terminal and tower come on-
line, tower staff and possibly firemen will
be needed.
BEC recently advertised in Nassau for
an Environmental and Safety Officer for its
new Abaco plant. Only after we inquired
did they advertise locally. Earlier, BEC
advertised in Nassau for a mechanic to be
stationed at its Abaco station. Obviously,
the company was satisfied that Abaco
would not have any mechanics interested
in this position.
Apparently, it is assumed that Abaco
persons interested in the few government
openings locally will be scanning the Nas-
sau papers.
We will continue to bring these govern-
ment oversights to the public's attention as
we become aware of them.

Cheated by
Yellow Air again
Dear Editor,
Once again I am very upset with Yel-
low Air Taxi. Today, November 20th, my
mother was suppose to fly on Yellow Air
from Fort Lauderdale to Marsh Harbour at
11:45 a.m. When my mother arrived at the
ticket counter, they told her she missed her
flight. They charged her $75 to go on the
flight the next morning to Marsh Harbour.
I just found out that Yellow Air Taxi did
not have a flight; they canceled the flight
today and did not fly to Marsh Harbour at
11:45 a.m.
I am very upset because they did to her
what they did to me when they canceled
my flight. But I am more upset now be-
cause they did this to my mother. They
charged my mother $75 for a flight that
they canceled, and they told her she missed
the flight. Why the lies?
I think someone needs to do something
because they are really taking advantage of
us. They have crossed the line with this,

Be careful of your
grocery packer
Dear Editor,
If you are a Maxwell's shopper, you
should not get a packer mad at you. I did
and when another boy started to pack for
me, the first one came to him and told him
to stop packing and he did. I just want to
tell you because he will not let anyone pack
for you. I am just waiting to see when he
will send the bosses home.
This is not the first complaint to go
in about him. So why is he still there. I
thought Maxwell's needed shoppers. I have
supported all shops they have had until
now. I no longer shop with them.

Rental houses
under threat again
Dear Sirs
Attached is a notice that was circulated
through letter and posted in various news-
papers in Abaco in 2009. Second hom-
eowners were advised that if they rented
their homes they could apply for a hotel
license, be authorised to collect hotel taxes
on behalf of the government and in turn

they would be given a preferential prop-
erty tax rate.
Foreign owners of second homes on
Guana Cay all went over to the office in
Marsh Harbour to the real estate property
tax office and signed up for this program,
received a tax number and started collect-
ing and remitting the taxes when there
were rentals. It was a hassle to do so as
the office in Marsh Harbour will not take
cash or personal checks so a bank draft
had to be purchased. But many went ahead
with the program as they thought it was the
right thing to do, and they hoped the rev-
enue would be used to improve the islands.
Since they were promised a break on their
property taxes, they felt it was something
in it for them.
Well, now to their surprise, they receive
their tax bills and are informed by the new
tax officer that there have been "some
glitches" in the system and there will be no
tax break. They have to pay their full tax
bill and now all of a sudden there is a four-
month minimum that you must live in your
house in order to get the tax discount. This
was never discussed in the original discus-
sions or anywhere in the information that
was circulated. Many of them feel cheated
and would never have signed up for the

the key components of great singing offered
at the Vocal Training Workshop by prolific
pianist and vocal coach, Lee Callender.
The workshop was designed to give
singers and aspiring singers the tools to
develop and display their vocal potential.
The Vocal Training Workshop, held at the
Faith Convention Center on November 20,
was the second to be organized by Sim-
mone Bowe-Mullings of Horizons Devel-
opment Group.
Not only does Mr. Callender train the
singing voice, but he focuses equally on
the speaking voice as well. He made an
appeal to public speakers because he said
that everyone needs better diction, better
clarity on how they speak, and they need
an understanding that we are talking and
speaking to humans. "It is our duty to do
the best we can for our paying public or
even if the public is free to give them the
best quality because every time you get in
public, you are advertising yourself. You
are your brand; I am my own personal
brand," Mr. Callendar emphasized.
He reminded them of the idea of melody
singing and legato musical notes that are
played or sung smoothly and connected.
They discussed mind renewal, posture,
opening the throat, the position of tongue,
lowering the jaw, facial posture, smiling
with the eyes as supposed to smiling with
the teeth, consistent volume, legato and
how to do legato, vowel sounds, and en-
ergy, passion and confidence in singing.
"If you sing well, we in The Bahamas
know how this works. 'We say God really
blessed you, God blessed you with a good

voice, hey?' In that, God is glorified. So
what am I saying here? Excellence is the
way to go; the idea is to get better bit by
bit," Mr. Callender elaborated.
Leazona Richard, one of the participants,
asked what could be done as far as vocal
care, and he said that covering the neck
with a scarf in cold weather, drinking room
temperature water and practicing every day
were important things to keep in mind.
He told them that 15 concentrated, con-
sistent minutes should be set aside each day
for them to practice what they had learned.
Jackie Williams, another one of the par-
ticipants, was grateful that he had attended
the workshop. He's been involved in music
performances for most of his life, but the
workshop demonstrated that no matter how
long you have been in music, there is still
more to learn in order to advance.
Mr. Callender has expressed interest in
returning to Abaco for future workshops.

behavioral change. The programs target

They are also trained in disease man-
agement even with those who are bedrid-
den and are able to work with people of
all ages. During their time in Abaco the
group shared some of the comprehensive
programs that they offer.
Georgette Strachan, coaching manager
and massage therapist, is responsible for
coordinating the program on Abaco. They
are beginning their services by offering a
30-day program called WaterWorks. As
she explained, water is an important part of
health and nutrition, but many people tend
to forget that by drinking a lot of juices in-
stead. However, as she pointed out, juices
can add too many calories to the diet. The
WaterWorks program has a tracking mech-
anism and involves a wellness inventory
that carries out a whole body wellness as-
sessment. She favours Swedish reflexology
and sports massage therapy. Ms. Strachan
is a licensed massage therapist with more
than 10 years of experience.
Andrew Khan, the fitness manager,
trains participants with functional exercis-
es. He said that the staff believe in training
functional muscles, which refers to mus-
cles that are used for daily life. They avoid
the use of heavy weights because it causes
loss of flexibility. With age, our bodies
tend not to absorb as much calcium as they
used to, and beyond the age of 35 years
there is loss of muscle mass and bone den-
sity every year. However, exercise helps
with these issues. One of their goals is to

Living well naturally
By Mirella Santillo
The second of the workshops offered
by certified Holistic Vegan Chef Shan-
ishka Bain was held on November 20th at
Friends of the Environment.
The vegan cooking class was not as well
attended as the one that took place earlier
but it was a benefit to the people who were
present as they were able to sit closer to the
cook to watch closely and even take part in
the preparations.
The theme for that day was Veggie
Holiday Feast Cooking Class. And it was
a feast as the participants sampled all the
dishes that were prepared.
The first item was a "no wheat" un-
johnny cake. Ms. Bain made a moist, tasty
bread, replacing regular white flour with
spelt. It was similar to Johnny cake but
without white flour and butter. She pre-
pared the bread to accompany her Veg 'n
Souse, a dish made of various chopped
vegetables seasoned with herbs, spices and

lime juice.
Spelt was used in all the recipes usually
requiring flour including the crust for My
Veggie Pot Pie and the crust of the Swirled
Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie.
For the pot pie filling mixed chopped
vegetables were simmered while the crust
was being made. Chick peas (also called
garbanzo beans) were substituted for meat
to provide the needed proteins. As Ms.
Bain continued with
the preparations, she
mentioned the scien-
tific reasons why cer-
tain ingredients are
better accepted by the
body than others. Ms.
Bain always uses co-
conut oil to cook be-
cause it can be heated
to higher temperatures
without breaking into
unhealthy chemicals.
Cashew nuts were
utilized for the fillings
in the swirl pumpkin
pie together with but-
ternut squash, dates
and maple syrup and
pumpkin pie spices.
The last dessert treat
was Kreamy No-Egg
Nog made with banana -
and almond milk. -

diseases which affect a large population of
this country.
Garden club learns
about neem
By Mirella Santillo
On November 13 the Horticultural Soci-

eld a workshop to demonstrate vegan cook-
I a complete holiday meal for the group that
eating. The workshop was held at Friends of
on November 20.

ety held its November meeting at the neem
farm on the Capt. Ernest Dean Highway.
Tables were in the shade to accommodate
30 members, few winter residents and
boaters who attended.
The topic of the meeting was the use of
the neem products in gardening, which are
many according to the three presenters.
Neem farm owner Nick Miaoulis gave a
brief history of the farm which was started
in 1994 when the first tree was planted. He
explained that he was prompted by a desire
to contribute to the health of the commu-
nity. There are now over 6,000 threes on
the farm. The neem farm is certified or-
ganic by a Florida company which comes
every year to inspect the farm premises
and the production center located near the
airport roundabout. Neem trees grow very
rapidly, informed Mr. Miaoulis. To facili-

tate harvesting and keep the trees stronger,
they are pruned on a regular basis. Each
fruit is picked by hand which contributes
to the integrity of the final product.
Sales and Marketing Manager Daphne
de Gregory gave a summary of the various
uses of the neem trees. The leaves which
can be brewed in a medicinal tea or used
as insect repellent in the house. Oil can
be extracted from the seeds which is used
in the cosmetic products including soap.
The neem has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal,
antiseptic properties and is safe for human
or animal consumption.
Laboratory Technician Kareem
Knowles, who studied agriculture at Saint
Claire College in Ontario, is the chemist
who derives insect repellent and fertilizers

Hope Town
By Candace Key
School is transformed
into Junkanoo shack
Each Thursday afternoon around 3:30
the strains of Junkanoo music can be heard
emanating from Hope Town School as
scores of children, parents and commu-
nity members gather on the deck and play-
ground to plan, cut and paste costumes for
the annual New Year's Day Youth Junk-
anoo Rush Out in Hope Town. This event
is a very popular crowd pleaser in the mid-
dle of the afternoon on New Year's Day.

School garden
Last year with the help of community vol-
unteers, Hope Town School enjoyed its first
vegetable garden. This year the garden con-
cept really expanded, and the garden now
covers most of the south end of the school's
sloping hill and is divided into three tiered
levels. The wood used by volunteer Billy
Gates to build the boxes was re-cycled from
the torn down main dock in town.
Ms. Joann Feinstein helped to get the
project off the ground with her involve-
ment and PTA officer Rachel Aberle took
on the project as a labour of love. Pre-
school students enjoy sprouting the seeds
(and keeping a herb garden of their own)

in parts of rain gutters. The older students
all take turns planting and watering. The
whole school saves compostable items to
fertilize the garden. The students are ea-
gerly awaiting their produce growing
enough to start eating!
Students become
Plastic Police
To help education for sustainable devel-
opment, the Hope Town School is aiding
Friends of the Environment in its quest to
have November as a NO Plastic Month.

Students created and posted signs all over
town asking people to please not use plas-
tic Thank You bags but instead to use the
green cloth bags to carry grocery store and
other purchased items home. As Plastic
Police it is their duty to thank visitors and
residents for using the green bags when-
ever they see them and to encourage those
still using plastic to use cloth bags instead
in order to protect the environment.

Please see Cays Page 16


The Hope Town School students grew a garden last year very successfully. This year it is
much larger. The plants are grown in raised beds made from the discarded lumber from
redecking the public dock in town.

Hope Town School PTA Vice President, Neil Aberle, lends a hand to Hope Town School
students to spread re-cycled rubber mulch under the play areas at the school. The popular
protective covering is widely used on tracks and play areas to cushion falls and reduce
injury. The school raised money for this project under the leadership of Monica Cook
former PTA officer.

Open House and
Dinner Night
The hungry crowd gathered early for
the school's Open House and International
Dinner Night. Foods from many countries
were displayed with the country of origin's
flag in front of the dish. Mothers served
the delicious meals while fathers manned
the grill. Parents and visitors strolled
through the school looking at classrooms
and children's work. Dr. Lenora Black,
District Superintendent, attended and was
excitedly greeted by children and adults
alike when she arrived.
In keeping with our sustainability for the
future theme at school, we were pleased to
see the response when we requested that

people bring their own containers from
home to take their food home or that they
bring the green cloth bags instead of the
use of plastic and styrofoam.
Go green for the future of our country!

Grade 5 and 6 students, under the direc-
tion of teacher Justin Higgs, are refurbish-

UNESCO has declared the period of 2004-2015 as the decade of Education for Sustain-

about living carefully to manage our resources for the future. The University of the West
Indies, Mona Campus, Jamaica, devoted a recent issue of their Journal of Education to
that theme. The UNESCO Project Sandwatch fits the bill c ,% il/y for teaching lessons in
sustainability and some Caribbean project directors of that program were asked to co-
author an article for the journal with Sandwatch Director, Dr. Gillian Cambers. Pictured

Tracking devices are

collecting data on bonefish
Bonefish tracking receivers are in place
A team of bonefish scientists was on
Abaco earlier this fall working with our
bonefish guides collecting data on these
elusive fish. Twenty-fuve bonefish were
caught, implanted with a miniature radio
transmitter and returned to the water.
Their movements will be tracked for sev-
eral months.
The floating receivers, pictured here,
are anchored and will record any of the
fish with transmitters that pass by. We
are told that they are positioned in remote
areas not normally used by our boaters.
Fishermen and boaters who might
come across one of these 20 floating re-
ceivers are asked to leave them in place
undisturbed as they will be retrieved later
this winter.

Police donate to Green Arrow Track Club

By Canishka Alexander
Police officers from the Royal Bahamas
Police Force went to Abaco Central High
School on November 17 to make a dona-
tion to the members of the Green Arrow
Track Club.
Supt. Noel Curry was accompanied by
Cpl. Erica Colebrooke and Police Reserve
Officer Rolle.
Cpl. Colebrooke told the athletes how
the Abaco Women Police, comprised of
women reserve officers and civilian staff,
came up with the idea to assist the track
club. Because of their Fun Run/Walk ini-
tiative, $310 was donated to the track club.
"About two months ago, I spoke to my
boss and told him that I wanted to have a
community Fun Run/Walk. As a result of
that, the Abaco Police Women Club was
formed. During one of the meetings Sgt.
Rachel Metelus suggested that part of the
proceeds from this event be donated to the
Green Arrow Track Club," she said.
Cpl. Colebrooke admitted that they
faced some challenges while organizing the

that they would commit a similar offense.
Furthermore, the handgun that had been
used in the armed robbery had not been
recovered at that time.
Laing's lawyer, Ms. Cooper, argued
that he had a solid alibi on the night in
question and requested that he be granted
bail even if it were granted with stipula-
However, Magistrate Crawford McKee
refused bail for both defendants and re-
manded them to Her Majesty's Prison at
Fox Hill until February 9, 2011, when a
preliminary inquiry will take place.

event, but everything worked out because
of the involvement of the participants and
the Abaco community.
Coach Vogel Williams thanked the offi-
cers for the donation which would be spent
in purchasing uniforms for the athletes.
He is looking forward to the day when the
track club can find a long-term sponsor to
assist with ongoing expenses.
The club was founded by Coach Vogel
Williams in 2009 and has approximately
30 members. Although he teaches physi-
cal education at the high school, the club
is not tied to Abaco Central High and is
available to all students. Most of the ath-
letes fall into the teenage bracket, but he is

willing to coach children as young as eight
and nine years old.
The athletes train from Mondays to
Thursday each week fulfilling part of
the club's objective for them to develop
their athletic abilities and provide after-
school activities for them. Coach Williams
hopes to secure athletic scholarships for
the club members.
He sees the Green Arrow Track Club
as having a two-fold benefit for athletes.
They are able to train and prepare them-
selves for school competitions, and more
importantly, they will soon be ready to
represent The Bahamas on the world stage.

Sgt. Rachel Metelus, right, helped organize a Police Fun Run/Walk that raised funds for
several community projects. She is shown making a donation to Coach Patrice Charles
for Green Arrow Tract Club. Vogel Williams, left, organized the club for the youth of
Central Abaco. The money will go toward uniforms for the young people.

from the neem cake. While studying the
composition of the residue from pressing
the seeds that is called neem cake, he dis-
covered that it contained sixteen trace ele-
ments necessary for the healthy growth of
plants. A couple of formulas were created
- the Neem Grow which will cater to plants
from seedlings to blooms and the Neem
Bloom Fertilizer which contains one more
element, potassium that will help the plants
to bear fruits.
The auction normally held at each meet-
ing was cancelled so those plants could be
sold at the Christmas Festival.

Three Bahamians
receive scholarships
By Canishka Alexander
During the month of October it was an-
nounced that three Bahamian students were
chosen as the first recipients of the Gregory
Maurice Scholarship at Palm Beach Atlan-
tic University in West Palm Beach. Among
the recipients was Taj Anderson, who is a
student from Abaco. Taj is a biology major
with a concentration in pre-health and has
aspirations in becoming a doctor and spe-
cializing in neurology.
The other two recipients are Basil Long-
ley from Nassau, a student in the school's
graduate counseling psychology program
who will graduate in December and hopes
to work in schools in The Bahamas after
graduation. Keisha Sands is a pre-pharma-
cy major from Spanish Wells and hopes
to apply to pharmacy
school after graduation.

New book is published
on native plants
By Timothy Roberts
After collecting information and sto-
ries from locals over many years, Linda
Weatherford has finally completed her
book called Abaco's Trees, Plants and
Their Uses.
Mrs. Weatherford, raised in Man-O-
War and the daughter of eighth generation
natives Percival and Venie Sweeting, said
she wanted to produce this book to help
preserve the knowledge of Abaco's native
trees and plants for future generations.
She also wanted to provide a resource
to overcome the limitations of other books
that used black and white illustrations
which she felt were sometimes not as clear
as they could be. Over the 10 or more
years she has been working on this book,
she has compiled thousands of photographs
which she felt would give the reader a
clearer guide to identifying trees and plants
around Abaco.
The book focuses mainly on native
plants and trees, but includes a number of
non-native species that have been found to
grow well on Abaco. The book features
about 250 varieties and will give informa-
tion on how each plant grows and what lo-

cals have used them for.
Many years ago, with the remoteness of
the cays of Abaco and when medicine and
doctors were not readily available, people
relied on their knowledge of bush medi-
cines. This information was passed from
generation to generation, and Mrs. Weath-
erford hopes to preserve this in her book.
She brings anecdotal and humorous sto-
ries to illustrate the various uses, which
were not confined to medicinal uses, but
also show how some are used for food,
and how others were used to make pipes
for smoking and more. She was raised in
a family that made a living from the sea
and farming. She learned much from her
mother and father early in her life as she
had a love for growing plants.
Mrs. Weatherford, a member of the Ab-
aco's branch of Horticultural Society, said
she has over 200 species of plants and trees
in her yard which have helped her in writ-
ing this book. However, there were quite
a few she had to search long and hard for.
Her books are expected to go on sale

Tattoo artist creates
vivid masterpieces
By Canishka Alexander
Daniel Lo is an up-and-coming tattoo
artist on Abaco. For the past two years,
he has translated his love for drawing by
creating artistic masterpieces on people's
skin. According to Daniel, it has been the
two best years of his life. His desire to be-
come an artist was born when he got his
first tattoo and reasoned that it was some-
thing he could do himself.
Fortunately, he has an active imagina-
tion which allows him to create anything
he sees into body art. Based on feedback
received from his clients, Daniel has been
steadily improving. Most of his clients re-
quest tattoos on their chest or upper arm.
Generally, tattoos can be completed be-
tween 30 minutes to an hour depending on
the size of the tattoo and range from $25 to
$100 in cost. Known as the "Tattoo Kid"
or "Mr. Ink It Up," Daniel Lo can be con-
tacted at 242- 426-6889.

Angels Academy celebrated

One Bahamas

One Bahamas From Page 1

The One Bahamas movement was first
launched in 1992 as an avenue to mobi-
lize Bahamians in love, respect and unity
across the entire country and the One Ba-
hamas Foundation was officially launched
during a ceremony at Government House
in 2007. The students of Angels Academy
plan to keep the spirit of One Bahamas
alive, and its presentation was a showcase
of Bahamian culture presented in an atmo-
sphere of love and unity.
Every child in the school took an active
part, and each was dressed in the Baha-
mian national colours. The Pre-K and Kin-
dergarten classes opened followed by each
class. The students of the upper classes
presented their dreams as a nation builder
of The Bahamas. They shared some inter-
esting dreams which included the follow-
* To stop pollution and join Friends of the
* To make sure everyone in The Bahamas
has solar power
* To seek better wages
* To lock up more criminals and make the
streets of The Bahamas safer.
* To stop poverty.

Following all of these performances
which were greatly enjoyed by all, Shelly
Austin treated everyone to some amusing
storytelling. She told the children how
when she was young, people told stories
because there was not much else to do;
it was really their only form of entertain-
ment to pass the time in the evenings. She
had everyone spellbound with her old time
stories of Brer Bookie, Brer Rabbi and
Naughty Johnny.
Dr. Lenore Black, District Education
Officer for Abaco, spoke a few words
highly applauding the students and teachers
for their efforts. Grade 5 student, Eliza-
beth Sweeting, deserves special mention
for the excellent job she did throughout the
programme as Mistress of Ceremonies.
This charming presentation closed with
a Junkanoo Rush after which everyone was
invited to partake of a mouth-watering ar-
ray of traditional Bahamian foods.

program if they had known they would not
receive any benefit.
Second homeowners that rent their
houses make tremendous contributions to
our economy. They built their homes us-
ing local contractors, paid full duty on
their homes, have Bahamian caretakers.
They spend money to market their prop-
erties (and by default the islands of the
Bahamas). They use Bahamian contrac-
tors for maintenance. When they are here,
they support the local merchants, grocery
stores, tour operators, restaurants and taxi
drivers. When they have visitors renting
their houses, the guests do the same. They
provide a tremendous boost to our econo-
my and most make positive contributions
by volunteering their time and making
monetary contributions to local charities.
I agree that the second homeowners
should be made to collect the six percent
tax (which, by the way, was raised without
notice to be 10 percent in July 2010). But
if they do so, they should be rewarded by

some kind of break on their property tax as
promised. All of these second homeowners
have built their homes without the benefit
of duty free exemptions which are being
offered to all of the new houses being built
in the mega developments. So as far as that
is concerned, they have contributed sub-
stantially more to the coffers of the trea-
sury than all of these mega developments.

Customer Appreciation brings thousands to Maxwell's

Staff is overwhelmed by response

Huge crowds shopped at Maxwell's Supermarket on November 18 when the management announced it was Customer Appreciation
Day. Thousands shopped for bargains, low prices on many items, two for the price of one sale items and promotional giveaways.
The staff had problems restocking the popular items. The wait to get to the check-out counters was long. But customers were thrilled
with their savings.

By Jennifer Hudson
Customer Appreciation Day at Maxwell's
Supermarket was a day which will long be
remembered by not only owner Chad Saw-
yer and his staff but also the thousands of
customers who passed through those doors
on November 18th. It was undoubtedly a
huge success and customers received bar-
gains galore as promised by Chad during
the official opening ceremony of Maxwell's
on October 21 but even Chad did not fore-
see just how huge an event it would be.
Dozens of people were already lined up
outside the store from early in the morning
hoping to be first for the bargains when the
doors opened at 8 a.m. By late morning
there was such a crowd in the store that
every one of the 250 trolleys was in use.
Chad estimated that there were probably
between 300 and 400 people in the store at
any one time.
The crowds were so intense that the
doors had to be closed for two and a half
hours to let those inside shop while people
lined up outside waiting for a chance to get
in. Patience began to wear thin with some
of those in the waiting crowd and a couple
of fights had to be broken up by the police
but nothing serious. Inside, tempers also
Please see Maxwell's Page 2

By Christine McCully
Sad news was received about a vessel
named Rule 62 that caused the loss of a
sailor's life. Our islands are situated in
the Bermuda Triangle and are known for
shipwrecks with our third largest barrier
reef in the world. When you add hurricane
pressure with 15-foot surf, the Atlantic can
equal a huge wave machine making it a
challenge to enter through the narrow pas-
sages between the reefs.
Most captains heed warnings and wait
out this type of wave action before they
leave port although there are always those
who get caught off guard en route on long

voyages and think they are getting out of
harms way by seeking entry into our shal-
low waters and safe harbors. Unfortunate-
ly, Sailor Laura Zekoll became victim to
the great Atlantic Ocean that can become
a graveyard when the elements and fate
start to dance. Steve Black of the Cruising
Rally Association of Hampton, Virginia,
announced that crew member Laura Zekoll
from Atlanta, Georgia, was the subject of
a search and rescue mission by the U.S.
Coast Guard and Bahamian Defense Force.

A bush fire spread quickly in Central Pines Estates just north of the Central Abaco
Primary School on November 20. The Marsh Harbour Volunteer Fire Department had
several trucks on the scene and worked for much of the night to keep it from spreading
toward any structures.

Treacherous waves take

yet another sailor's life



Customer Appreciation at Maxwell's is mass confusion

Maxwell's From Page 1
began to get frayed as people fought for
trolleys and then had to wait in line two
hours or more to get checked out. The cus-
tomers trailed back at least half way down
every aisle waiting in line to get to the
check outs with their laden trolleys.
Anyone who had the patience and stam-
ina to deal with the crowds benefitted from
bargains galore. There were discounts,
promotional giveaways, 'buy one get one
free deals' and double points on some
items. Trolleys were stacked to overflow-
ing especially with the special deal items
such as cooking oil, cereal, milk, oats,
canned goods, household supplies and Ca-
pri Sun fruit drinks which seemed to be
most popular. All nine check-out stations
were working full force but "we could have
done with 20 checkouts," stated Manager
George Harris. The cashiers did an amaz-
ing job of dealing with the huge number
of items to be checked out and were espe-
cially to be commended for keeping calm
amidst the melee even when the computer
system was not running up to speed.
The parking lot holds 100 cars and not a
space could be found. People were parked
on the spare ground both sides of the store
and opposite stretching as far down as the
Royal Bank plaza. Some people who lived
locally took their first lot of groceries home
and came back twice more. However,
some folks who lived farther away did not
find it quite so easy. A group from "down
the shore" had not realized just how much
(or how little) their car would hold. After
stacking up their bargains in the trunk and
the back seat they still had two more trol-
ley loads and were puzzling as to just how
they could get the rest of the stuff and the

passengers home. Another group came in
a bus from Sand Banks. When they had
filled the bus with groceries, there was no
room for any people. The bus had to take
the groceries all the way to Treasure Cay,
offload and come back for the passengers.
All staff members were brought on duty
and some worked as many as 18 hours
that day. "At 5 p.m. we brought in staff
from the Sav-a-lot store to help out," stated
Chad. "We were bringing out pallet loads
of goods all day long and there was no let
up from 8 a.m. until midnight when the last
customers left." Chad and the store man-
agers were dashing about all day pitching
in wherever anything needed to be done,
even turned their hands to packing bags.

Please see Maxwell's Page 14

Crowds were heavy outside the store as well as inside. Doors were locked for a few hours
in the morning as the inside was so crowded. Cars were parked everywhere. The re-
sponse to the Customer Appreciation Day was much more than the management expected.
.. -

The response to Maxwelll's Customer Appreciation Day was far greater than expected. The huge loads in the grocery carts attested to
the appreciation of the public to this gesture. The crowds were so great that many people did not even try to shop that day.

Swimmers won many trophies in Freeport

By Cathy Pinder
Excitement was buzzing throughout the
Marsh Harbour Airport terminal on the

the air!
Forty-seven swimmers, coaches and

The llth Annual Northern Bahamas
Short Course Juniors Swimming Cham-
pionships Meet was held by the Freeport
Aquatics Club, at the Bishop Eldon High
The team knew that practicing
morning and afternoon with Coach
Sara, Coach Vanessaca, Coach
Laurence and Coach Brenda for the
previous weeks was about to pay off
and no one could hide their excite-
Coach Brenda rolled everyone
into their designated planes with a
brush of encouragement and a smile
of pride from ear to ear. She knew
today was going to be good! She
couldn't have guessed it any better.
The day was warm, the sky was
blue and the swimmers were ready.
After landing in Freeport the re-
ception was tremendous. Our club
was welcomed with open arms and
friendly smiles.
Once at the pool, Bert Bell an-
nounced our arrival and began the
day of competition.
Twenty-three of our team mem-
bers participated in the various
events. Coach Laurence, Coach
Sara, Coach Vanessaca and Coach
Brenda continued to encourage,
train and support each individual
swimmer in every event they swam,
while moms, dads and friends
back cheered loudly from the side lines.

and hoarse but spirits were high.

the plane and Wendy's hamburgers were
distributed, all that could be heard was
swimming chatter, "We did so good!"
The team intends to continue training
throughout the winter season with the help
of new starting blocks and plans to attend
several meets throughout the next year
with the goal to have all team member par-
ticipate at Nationals in June.
This meet confirmed our vision. Abaco

great parents. We can do it, we have what
it takes. Thank you, Abaco, for your sup-

Teacher Cadets at
S.C.B. hear Dr. Black
By Nathalee Lubin, President
Teachers' Cadets Program
On October 9 the future teachers of
The Bahamas Cadets at S.C. Bootle High
School were blessed with a visit from Dis-
trict Superintendent, Dr. Lenora Black.
The pursuit of excellence without any ex-
cuse was her motto. Dr. Black has been a
teacher for 39 years. Teaching is not just
in the classroom, but also how you carry
yourself everywhere you go and by the
way you live, she told the potential teach-

ers. The teaching profession has many
advantages, one of which is the ability to
touch and change the life of a person.
Mrs. Black said you have to love teach-
ing, love people and most of all, master it
in order to be a great teacher. Teaching has
always been a burning desire and a passion
for her, and because of that, she was able
to change the lives of many people. Dr.
Black said that it doesn't matter what kind
of car you drive in the future, the house
you live in or the amount of money you
have in the bank but what matters is
when you give back to your community,
your country and yourself. It does matter

Dr. Lenora Black, Abaco's Education Superintendent, spoke to the Cadets of the Future
Teachers of Tomorrow at S.C. Bootle High School encouraging them in their chosen

when you make a difference in someone's
life and make the right choices.
That is what teaching is all about making
a difference everywhere you go. For some,
teaching may be a gift, for others it may be
a dream, but for Dr. Black, it is a passion.
The young Cadets were very appreciative
for the visit, advice and encouragement giv-
en them by Dr. Black. Hopefully, we will
all return to Abaco to advance the pursuit of
educational excellence on the island.

vember 18. Elmer Bongon was the mod-
erator for the service and called on the
school's Drama Club to reenact the bib-
lical story of the 10 lepers. Following a
dramatic performance by the students with
emphasis on the one leper who returned to
say thanks, Bongon said that we, too, are
guilty of doing the same thing that the nine
lepers did when they never came back to
tell Jesus thanks.
Students were given the top 10 things to
be thankful for by a student named Radei-
sha. Listed from 10 to one, with one being
the most important she told the students
that she was thankful for her house, food,
clothes, health, country, teachers, friends,
family, parents and Jesus.
She said, "Jesus is number one on my
list of things for which I am thankful. No
one ever loved me like Jesus. He loved me
so much that He was willing to die on the
cross, so that I could have everlasting life.
Thank you, Jesus."
Following her remarks, students began
to bring beautifully decorated boxes of do-
nated food items for those who are in need
in the Abaco community.
Principal Josephine Giraud-Kumar was
touched by the generosity of the students
and thanked all for their involvement in
making the event a successful one. Before
concluding, she mentioned Mr. Dennis,
whom she thanked openly for his faithful-
ness to St. Francis for a number of years.

Prefects at Central
Abaco Primary are
More than 60 students from grades 5
and 6 were recommended to become lead-
ers of Central Abaco Primary School in
the form of school prefects. This year the
group has a new leader as former princi-
pal Eunice Mills assigned prefects to the
school guidance counselor Samantha Ev-
The training at the school took place
from September 27th to October 21st.
The students learned about leadership
and skills that leaders should possess.
The students were given a new skill ev-
eryday and practice exercises to show
how they would handle different situa-
tions if presented with them. They must
obey school rules, maintain at least a 2.5
GPA, attend school regularly, perform
prefect duties and represent their school
at functions.
Principal Ruthamae Rolle spoke to the
students about the selection process and
the extent of their authority as prefects.
She encouraged them to be fair and to not
abuse their role as prefects.
Vice principal Beatrice Moxey spoke
to them specifically about their dress code
and that they must lead by example.
At the end of the training, those stu-
dents meeting the requirements were mea-
sured for their vests and started practicing
for their installation.

Falcons Fire Up the Fifth
By Grade 10 Forest Heights Academy
"'Rci,,,ici, remem-
ber, the Fifth of No-
vember." Instead of
gunshots and treason,
Forest Heights Acad-
emy celebrated its
annual Guy Fawkes
with a bonfire and
barbeque. With over
200 students, fu,,i
and friends it was lit-
erally a "blast." The
evening, organized by
the Parent Teacher
Association as a fund
raiser, started off with a barbeque menu which was followed by a bonfire. Earlier that
week, the Forest Heights students built Guys to burn. As the night progressed the court-
yard was ablaze with students frolicking like fireflies with sparklers in hand. The event
was brought to a conclusion with a spectacular fireworks display not to be outdone by the
original Guy Fawkes Gunpowder Plot of 1605. A great time was had by all.

High. When the students give the junior
councillors their suggestions or make
complaints, they can present them to the
Central Abaco District Council in Marsh
Harbour. LaShanta Fowler stated that this
entire experience has been a good one and
she is very impressed. The students need to
learn about how the government works in
the country where they live so that they can
develop patriotic pride.
The first order of business was to elect a

chief councillor and deputy chief council-
lor. Then they examined the projects they
had named in their campaigns and picked
the major ones.
The councillors will be held accountable
for money spent and get needed assistance
from the professionals. After the top two
positions have been elected, the remainder
of the junior councillors will be assigned
to different boards such as town planning,
hotel, road traffic or licencing. A junior
administrator will be appointed. The ju-
nior councillors will be required to write

reports, keep minutes of their meetings, at-
tend District Council meetings, participate
in staff meetings and send a representative
to staff meetings.
According to Tavarre Smith, the junior
councilors must accomplish all of their proj-
ects before they leave office in June. At this
time, Mr. Smith and Ms. Fowler will meet
with them to hear their suggestions and con-
cerns for the program overall, any prob-
lems they had while in office and what they

would do to improve the program.
The excitement from all participating
schools was infectious and spread to the
entire student body. Mr. Smith admit-
ted that they under estimated the students
as they have proven that when given a
chance, they can be major forces to con-
tend with. From what he has seen, the stu-

dents executed their campaigning efforts in
grand style with all of the tools that local
government officials and parliamentarians
use for regular elections. The students are
keen and the support received was quite
From this experience, Mr. Smith sees
the local government poll expanding as all
of the students from grades 10 to 12 now
have a better understanding of the election
process. Further, he sees education im-
proving as the students gain a wealth of
knowledge in civics, and the parliamentary
registry will increase as well since these
students are near voting age.
These junior councillors have many du-

ties ahead as they are further expected to
take part in youth-based activities in the
community as well as in school. He would
like these leaders to be involved in planning
youth month activities and other such activi-
ties in surrounding Abaco communities.
The councillors will engage in one
school-based and one community-based
project. He encourages churches, busi-
nesses and community organizations to
seek ways to assist these young people with
their projects.
Junior councillor
leaders are elected
By Samantha V. Evans
On November 11 eight of the nine lo-

cal government junior councillors elected
the two top positions, chief councillor and
deputy chief councillor. All week the stu-
dents vying for the top two posts should
have been campaigning so that they could
secure the votes of the other junior coun-
cillors. Mr. Cooper stated that the chief
councillor is the voice of the group. Ad-
ditionally, this person will have to attend
functions, speak at functions and represent
the body of junior councilors.
Before the election, Administrator Ce-
phas Cooper explained the election process
and rules to them. Alvonell Greene was
elected chief councillor and Kendice Mur-
ray was elected deputy chief councillor.
Mr. Cooper invited the two young ladies
to take their seats at the head table.
Dr. Black encouraged them to see their
job through to the end. She told them to re-
member their platforms and strive to bring
as many of them to fruition as possible.
Finally, she told them that they serve stu-
dents of this school, district, and the com-
monwealth of the Bahamas.
Mr. Cooper encouraged them to select
realistic goals and to work together as a

team. They must ensure that the projects
they select can be achieved by the close
of school in June 2011. He reminded them
that the entire Bahamas is watching them.
Finally, remarks were made by Dave
Ralph, who has been interested in the lo-
cal government concept since its inception
in 1996. He told them that not all projects
require money. They can write letters and
speak with Councillors for assistance and
persuade them to take on projects that they
may be interested in but cannot afford
to take on. He reminded them that their
words are powerful.
At their next meeting they will assign ju-
nior councilors to various boards and select
the junior administrator.

My Experience in the

Local Government Junior Council

By Aisha Jones
History has been made in the past but
the future is still to come. The future can
be affected in many ways but the past is
the past and cannot be changed. In other
words, once you make history no one can
take it away from you. These past few
months have been remarkable. Words
cannot begin to describe the honor, re-
spect, thankfulness and happiness that I
have in my heart towards those who have
helped me along the way to my goal.
The Local Government Junior Council
came to fruition under the leadership of
the Hon. Byron Woodside with the as-
sistance of a handful of masterminds of
Tavarre Smith and LaShanta Fowler, who
had the vision to give youth a voice. The
concept of the Junior Council is to give
students in grades 10-12 the chance to be
the voices for the youth in their communi-
ties, schools and the island. Also it makes
opportunities available for the students to
say what they feel needs to be changed,
fixed or thrown out altogether at their
schools to make things better for the en-
tire school population.
When we started off in the Junior
Council, there was a small number of us.
Session after session different presenters
shared information on different topics
related to civics and local government.
Types of government and laws, the his-
tory of the local government and govern-
ment budget were all topics that we stud-
ied over the past few weeks. Thursday
after Thursday we used our after-school
time to better our understanding and
knowledge of local government that was
started 14 years ago.
Finally, the time came and it was our
opportunity to campaign and take part

in the election process. Well, of course,
the writ was put up on the Junior Coun-
cil bulletin board first, which announced
the coming of an election. Our platforms,
varying from a cafeteria, a school nurse
and cleaner bathrooms to student identi-
fication cards, the abolishment of whole
class punishments and creating programs
to make the school more unified were all
presented to the Abaco Central High stu-
dent body on November 1st.
This initiated the beginning of cam-
paigning. Slogans like Vote for Kend-
ice and Damara! and Shae Shae All the
Way! were flying around the campus like
dragonflies. Flyers, posters, buttons and
T-shirts were all marketing tools being
given out, worn, held and paraded around
the school.
All in all campaigning was the most fun,
but the anxiety and stress that came along
with elections was excruciating and in some
ways... overwhelming. Thank God it was
only one day we had to wait for the results.
But we already had an idea of what the
outcome would be from the counting we
watched the afternoon of the elections. The
swearing in was... in a word... emotional!
There were a lot of tears. When one person
cried, everyone cried.
The honor I felt was phenomenal and I
know that the feeling of satisfaction that I
got that day will continue during my time
on the Local Government Junior Council.
Thanks to the creators of the program, the
presenters, our advisor Ms. Farrington,
the members of Local Government and
all of the supporters, well wishers, fans,
voters, family, campaigners and to all the
members of the Junior Council! All my
love to you!
Now the work begins, and I know that
we will make you all proud.

your Health

Preventive care can

reduce heart problems

Dr. James Hull
Marsh Harbour Medical Center
Heart disease is the leading cause of
death in the United States. High blood
pressure is one of the causes of heart
disease and that is why we take it so se-
riously. It is a very common disease in
The Bahamas and one that most people
do not understand very well.
I have heard so many times that peo-
ple know when their pressure is high be-
cause they have headaches. High blood
pressure is called the "silent killer" be-
cause you do not know when you have it
unless you have your pressure checked.
High blood pressure tends to be passed
down from parents to their children. So
it is even more important for people who
have family members with high blood
pressure to check their own.
It is not sufficient to check your blood
pressure just once and get a good reading
and declare yourself free from the dis-
ease for life. Everybody needs to check
it at least yearly over the course of their
entire life. If your parents do not have el-
evated blood pressure, it does not mean
you will not have a problem. Some of
the more common causes of high blood
pressure are obesity, poor fitness (lack
of exercise) and getting older.
When you have been diagnosed with
high blood pressure, it is important that
you take steps to get it under control.

Lifestyle changes are very important
to the control of blood pressure. When
I say life style changes I mean eating
foods that are healthy, eating less, los-
ing weight and exercising at least four
times a week for 40 minutes. I will go
into more detail in another article what
each of us can do when it comes to exer-
cise and some diet tips as well.
While we are making these changes,
it is important to get your blood pressure
down. There are many medicines avail-
able today that will reduce your blood
pressure. Quite often it takes more than
one medicine to get the pressure down
to a level that is safe. That seems to be
upsetting for patients. Many times I am
told by patients that they are taking too
many medications. If I had one tablet
that would cure high blood pressure in
everybody, I would be a very wealthy
man. But sadly it does not exist today.
So often more than one pill is needed
and the medicines need to be taken every
day, yes, everyday! I hear from patients
all the time how they take their medicine
when they have a headache or when they
feel like it.
Please remember that the medicine
can and will reduce your blood pressure
when taken properly. In doing so it will
help stop heart disease which can help
you live a longer and healthier life.

Commonwealth Bank is expanding

Commonwealth Bank has begun a ma-
jor expansion project of its Marsh Harbour
branch. Coastline Construction Abaco
Limited was awarded the $3 million con-
tract which, when completed in the fourth
quarter 2011, will transform the existing
structure by adding an additional 6,000
square feet. The extension of the branch
at the traffic light in Marsh Harbour is a
direct response to customer demands. The
newly completed branch will be 10,000
square feet in size and feature the Bank's
signature design and amenities gray ex-
terior with white trim, a spacious custom-
er-friendly lobby in gray and pink marble
and granite, energy efficient components,

convenient customer parking and handicap
"Since 1987 Commonwealth Bank has
been privileged to provide financial servic-
es to the residents and businesses in Marsh
Harbour and the surrounding areas," said
the Bank's President and CEO, William
B. Sands, Jr. "We remain resolute in our
commitment to make available to our loyal
customers the best in retail banking ser-
vices, at the same time making a positive
impact on the community as a whole. This
new construction project demonstrates
our pledge, as we introduce an expanded
modernised facility that is equipped to of-
fer banking convenience and also accom-

modates the island's expanding economic
The project is expected to create dozens
of on-site jobs and related, financially vi-
able opportunities for the local community
during the 12 months of construction.
Mr. Wallace Taylor, the newly appoint-
ed Branch Manager, along with a staff of
25 will continue to deliver excellent service
during the construction phase of the new
facility whilst seeking to minimize any in-
convenience to their customers.
Commonwealth Bank is the largest and
most successful Bahamian bank with $1.4
billion in assets. The bank is a market
leader in service and convenience with 11
branches in New Providence, Abaco and
Grand Bahama. The bank provides the best
possible access to an extensive line of fi-
nancial products and services. Common-
wealth Bank celebrated 50 years of banking
excellence on April 20, 2010.

the Director of the AMMC requested an
investigative review of historic sites and
geographic features in the area around
BEC's Wilson City Power Plant and adja-
cent to BEC's newly cleared road that ex-
tends from the Capt. Ernst Dean Highway
to Wilson City on Spencer's Point. Sites
of specific interest were open water holes
in BEC's cleared road bed and documen-
tation of historic ruins. In addition, the
cleared road bed was inspected for historic
artifacts. However, bulldozers had already
cleared the road; only broken fragments of
artifacts, several filled-in wells and water-
holes were revealed (see The Abaconian,
April 1, 2010). In all, over 100 sites of sig-
nificance were identified.
Numerous "solution holes," commonly
referred to as "blue holes" or karstt win-
dows," were of great concern since they
were the most likely location to contain
prehistoric artifacts and intercept Abaco's
freshwater lens. AMMC was not notified
that these features were present before or
during bulldozing activities and therefore
did not have the opportunity to investigate
or recover historically significant material
that may have been present within these
sites. Artifacts, if they were present prior
to road work, have now been destroyed
by boulders or covered with fill from road

Coppice vegetation was severely impact-
ed and caves were in-filled on and adjacent
to the 100-foot-wide road clearing that ex-
tends from the Capt. Ernst Dean Highway
to Wilson City at Spencer's Point. Scien-
tists studying plant and bird species near
the BEC road and the Wilson City penin-
sula note that this is a critically important
plant community with "old growth" forest
characteristics and is among the tallest cop-
pice with the greatest diversity of tree spe-
cies anywhere on Abaco. This vegetation
supports some of the islands richest bird
communities including resident and migra-
tory species.
BEC's EIA specifically states, "2.1.7
Antiquities, Monuments and Museum Act.
Areas or structures of cultural, anthropolog-
ical, archeological, paleontological or his-
torical significance are regulated under the
Antiquities, Monuments and Museum Act
(1998) and Regulations (1999). Discovery
of a cultural or historical feature must be
reported to the Minister and measures are
required to preserve its integrity. A per-
mit must be obtained to excavate, carry on
building or other work, plant or fell trees,
and deposit earth or refuse on, in or near a
monument, or demolish, remove, obstruct,
deface, or interfere with a monument."
The Antiquities, Monuments and Mu-
seums Corporation strongly urges that
certain areas be set aside for long term
conservation with obvious benefits to na-
tive plants, wildlife, hunters, eco-tourists,
watershed protection and historic preserva-
tion. I would ask that those people working
for BEC be mindful of the areas identified
by Abaconians and AMMC as historically
and environmentally sensitive and seek lo-
cal consultation before further clearing ac-
tivities are undertaken.

Erosion of the northwest end of the Treasure Cay beach is continuing and is putting the
'11 cilv constructed gazebos at risk. That end of the beach is a public park and Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham has invested the money allocated for him to spend in his con-
stituency on these structures. Now the problem is to figure a way either to move them
back from the eroded beach or to put a structure out from the adjoining rocky shore that
could be backfilled with sand. The far gazebo is already showing signs of breaking apart.

Central Abaco Town Planning Nov 8
By Timothy Roberts
The Central Abaco District Town Plan-
ning Board's meeting began with the an-
nouncement of the resignation of one of
its members, Jeffrey Rogers, who, it was
reported, felt the system was unsupportive
of Town Planning decisions.
During the meeting held on November
8 other members said they felt the same
way, saying, "We have no power here."
The issue revolved around an application
submitted by JMJ Electric for a warehouse
off Key Club Drive that was turned down
by Town Planning in July. The decision
was appealed to the Central Abaco Council
that overturned the decision and allowed
the construction.
The remaining members present, though
dissatisfied with the circumstances, felt it
necessary to move on and conduct their
business as they had before.
During the meeting they reviewed about
$1.8 million worth of house plans and ex-
tensions. The group was given a presen-
tation by a member of the Murphy Town
Committee on behalf of the community.
Plans were presented for a 50,000-square-
foot Community Center which the commu-
nity of Murphy Town would like to build.
The Board gave approval-in-principal.
Marsh Harbour Town Comm. Nov 10
By Timothy Roberts
The first business that the Committee
considered was a request by Town Plan-
ning for Marsh Harbour's input concern-

ing a take-away on Crockett Drive. The
application had originally been made to the
Central Abaco Town Planning Board that
had told the applicant that she must follow
the prescribed steps and provide various
approvals before the application could be
considered. The application was forward-
ed to the Marsh Harbour Town Commit-
tee by Town Planning as it sought further
guidance on the take-away. The applicant
was present and asking the Town Commit-
tee for guidance in proceeding so that she
could open for business.
The Committee reiterated the necessary
steps she needed to take in order to get the
approval of Town Planning. This included
following the guidelines set by the Depart-
ment of Environmental Health for take-
aways. They told her that when she had all
the correct permissions and inspections in
place, then she could return to Town Plan-
ning to seek its approval for the building.
A second person asked the Marsh Har-
bour Town Committee for approval in
principle to open a take-away at the Cross-
ing Beach. She is seeking to use the build-
ing next to the public dock and has made
an application for leasing the property.
The Committee deferred a decision on the
take-away until the lease application was
Committee member Carl Archer made
a motion that fellow Committee member,
Roger Delancy, be removed as a represen-
tative of the Marsh Harbour Town Com-
mittee from the Central Abaco District
Council because he is not representing the
wishes of the Committee. He also motioned
that Colon Curry be the one to replace Mr.
Delancy. The motion was seconded with
no objections.

Hope Town District Council Nov. 23
By Timothy Roberts
Residents of Hope Town have already
begun voicing their displeasure at Cen-
tral Government's ruling in favor of New
Settlement II Limited, the development
company seeking to redevelop Elbow Cay
Club, granting them permission to pur-
chase and develop the property on Elbow
The ruling comes less than one month
after four ministers, Deputy Prime Minis-
ter Brent Symonette, Minister of the Envi-
ronment Earl Deveaux, Minister of Pub-
lic Works and Transport Neko Grant and
Minister of Lands and Local Government
Byron Woodside, visited Elbow Cay Club
as well as Orchid Bay. The ministers came
to Abaco to review the two projects with
a view to making recommendations to the
Bahamas Investment Authority.
According to the ruling which came
from the Bahamas Investment Authority,
the developers were approved for "a per-
mit pursuant to the International Persons
Landholding Act to purchase the Elbow
Cay Club property comprising nearly 19
acres of land for a consideration of $5
million and the construction thereon of a
new hotel comprising 24 hotel rooms and
88 villas and a 36-slip marina with related
The ruling further states that the ap-
proval is subject to four conditions, which
include 1. payment of outstanding real
property tax 2. The project commencing
within 12 months 3. New Settlement II
Limited obtaining the normal government
development permissions, including satis-
fying the requirements of the Ministry of
the Environment 4. Any tax concessions to

the project will be limited to the hotel and
Council members were upset that infor-
mation of the approval was leaked to the
public before the Council received the offi-
cial statement from the Investment Author-
ity. The Council will set up a own meeting
to address the community concerning the
results of the Elbow Cay Club ruling. The
date was not set at press time.
Orchid Bay, also receiving an approval
at the recommendations of the four min-
isters, was given approval in principal to
move forward with its proposed upgrades.
The approval granted the developer per-
mission to move forward subject to obtain-
ing normal government development per-
missions and in particular the requirements
of the Ministry of the Environment.
The resort will be comprised of a 100-
room, five star hotel with amenities, 17 pri-
vate residences, 53 waterside cottage lots,
inland marina with 354 slips and amenities
and a community churchThe approval in-
cluded two stipulations which require the
submission of a coastal engineering study
inclusive of assessments on the beaches,
dunes, storm surge and flooding analysis,
and the submission of an environmental
management plan for review and approval
by the Ministry of the Environment prior
to the commencement of the project.
During the meeting Chief Councillor,
Jeremy Sweeting presented his Hope Town
District Council Annual Report for 2009
to 2010 to the Council. The annual report
reflected on the previous year's work by
Council and offered some statistics on
Council attendance, permits granted and

The Inter-American Development Bank
has executed a $500,000 grant to launch
the Bahamian handicraft industry into cy-
Signed between the bank and Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce in partnership with
Bahamas Agricultural and Industrial Cor-
poration (BAIC), the program will allow
artisans to do business online.
"We see on a daily basis the significant
improvement in the quality and variety of
products produced by the Bahamas Nation-
al Craft Association members," said IDB
country representative Oscar Spencer.
The strategy of the project is to develop
a programme that complements the govern-
ment's effort to rally the industry around a
structured approach to the establishment
of industry standards, marketing, and ad-
dressing the over-reliance on imports.
The program's focus will be the devel-
opment and launch of a platform to support
and facilitate the marketing, sales, and dis-
tribution of Bahamian manufactured hand-
craft souvenirs via the Internet.
This project is going to present our
products to the world, said Chamber presi-
dent Khaalis Rolle. The ability for us to
sell our products online is a significant
coup for The Bahamas.
Also attending the press conference
were BAIC Executive Chairman Edison
Key. "These are exciting times to be a

Watch for School Children

part of the growing Bahamian handicraft
industry," said Mr. Key. "Many doors of
opportunity are opening for us to tap into
those millions of dollars used to import
craft products for our tourists and resi-
dents. It is our hope that in short order the
vast majority of those millions of dollars
will be flowing directly into the pockets of
our artisans instead of out of the country."

Licencing Act From Page 1
all existing businesses are required to re-
apply for their license. There is no longer
a need to submit an application for a new
business through local government.
If an island has a Business License of-
fice or a Public Treasury office, all licens-
es will be submitted through one of those
departments. On some islands there are no
Business License or Public Treasury offic-
es, and in these instances the Administrator
will be responsible for handling applica-
tions and granting licenses.
Mr. Cooper said it was not yet an-
nounced which office on Abaco will handle
licenses. However, he noted that there will
be a town meeting called in December, and
it should be sorted out by that time. The
date and location of this meeting will be
Mr. Cooper said the intent of the new
Act is to make it easier and quicker for
those seeking a business license. The turn-
around time on applications is expected to
be reduced to one week and Prime Minis-
ter Hubert Ingraham said that the Business
License office will be a "one stop shop" as
all licenses will come under one umbrella.

BAIC introduces greenhouse technology

year-round farming.
The Andros greenhouses feature a
52-by-78-foot Israeli-designed self-venti-
lating metal model created especially for
hurricane prone Caribbean countries. It
was set up to show growers how it can be
used to grow hydroponically, and in soil,
whether in pots or in the ground, using the
drip system which supplies nutrients to the
roots of the plants.

North Andros has ic, cril acquired two greenhouses provided by the Bahamas Agricul-
tural and Industrial Corporation. One of them is being used to produce cabbages, toma-
toes, sweet peppers, spinach and Asian greens. "The other greenhouse is slated forfruit
tree propagation for distribution throughout the island, said Chairman of BAIC, Edison
Key, "so we can really get production going in this country and cut down on some of the
imports. We are making good progress.

Bahamas Information Services
Bahamas Agricultural and Industrial
Corporation has unveiled the first two
of a series of greenhouses slated for the
North Andros Agri-industrial Park during
a weekend growers' seminar there.
Thirty growers from six Family Islands
heard professionals from Jamaica Drip Irri-
gation and the Jamaica Greenhouse Grow-
ers Association on the latest techniques for

ers will be able to grow a lot of products
in a small area. Using the drip irrigation
system, the savings would be tremendous
compared to the old overhead system.
"That would go a long way in increasing
farmers' income, increasing the quality of
products reaching Bahamians' table, and
lowering the cost to householders."

"The seminar was very informational,
very encouraging," said pineapple grow-
er Diana Thompson of North Eleuthera.
"Greenhouse technology offers farmers a
better and easier way to earn a living. That
is the future for farmers in The Bahamas.
The ability to grow more products in a
smaller space during a longer season could
mean an increase in in-
come for farmers."
Growers came from
New Providence, Ab-
aco, Grand Bahama,
Exuma and Andros
"I am very im-
pressed. The work 7
went just perfect," said
BAIC Chairman Edi-
son Key. "One of the
greenhouses is already
in operation and the in-
terest among Bahami-

Dr Allen held seminar on Shame

By Jennifer Hudson
It is a pity that the entire population
of Abaco and, indeed, the whole of The
Bahamas, could not have been present at
the very powerful seminar entitled Shame-
The Human Condition which was pre-
sented on September 17 at the Christian
Counseling Centre by Dr. David Allen.
Dr. Allen is a well known psychiatrist
with a wealth of experience having taught
Psychiatry and Religion at Harvard, Yale
and Georgetown Medical Schools. He has
been recognized for his outstanding work
in the area of cocaine addiction, is a rec-
ognized expert in all types of addiction and
their causes and an author of many books.
Dr. Allen has clinics in Washington D.C.
and Nassau and has been actively involved
with the Christian Counseling Centre since
its inception in Nassau 24 years ago. Dr.
Allen is now bringing his expertise to Ab-
aco to help hurting people here and will
be visiting once a month, working between
the Christian Counseling Centre and the
Auskell Medical Clinic.
Dr. Allen's message is that anger and
shame are rampant in our country and lead
to suicides and homicides, for deep down
they are the story of shame. But there is
help and there is a sure way to make a shift
from Anger (Shame/Fear) to Love (Com-
passion). The way to do this is printed at
the end of this article, and Dr. Allen im-
plores people to use it whenever they feel
angry, hurt or shamed.
"Anger is the most common face in the
Bahamas today, and this is the underlying
cause behind the spate of recent suicides. A
suicide happened on Abaco last week; don't
let Abaco get like Nassau," implored Dr.
Allen. "The country is in pain and the esca-
lating murder rate is because of all the angry
people. If you are angry, evil is crouching
at your heart's door. Murders and suicides
are the face of shame; shame is powerful;
this is new to The Bahamas. When people

are shamed and angry they respond with,
"You dissed me and I will kill you," but
you must conquer shame or it will blow you
apart," emphasized Dr. Allen.
"Sometimes the deeper the quiet the
deeper the shame, so reach out. If your
kids isolate themselves go and talk to them.
Kids are under the influence that if they
cannot have a pair of Nike shoes other
material things they want in life, then life
is not worth living, and they feel shamed.
Kids are very important, get to your kids.
Many kids, even in professional families,
feel abandonment because parents are too
busy; spend time with your kids.
"Many kids are shamed by favouritism
in the family; do not favour one child over
another because they are better looking or
more academic. Do not cause your child to
feel humiliation or rejection. Do not shame
because shame does not go away. Shame
produces loneliness and then problems
magnify. Shame is taking over in Nassau;
do not let it take over on Abaco," warned
Dr. Allen.
Dr. Allen urges all persons whenever
they are experiencing anger (which is the
face of shame and fear) to do the ABACO
SHIFT which will transform them to a
feeling of love.
1.Be aware that you can shift.
2.Take time out.
3.Breathe deeply for one minute with
eyes closed which produces "Alpha"
waves which have a calming effect (Relax-
ation of body melts anger).
4.Silence (Calms our heart).
5.Simple prayer, "Lord have mercy"
(The source of Love).
6.Think of someone who loved you un-
conditionally as a child (The stream of Love).
7.Think of a place where you felt peace
and Love (The space of Love).
8.Think of three (3) things to be thank-
ful or grateful for.

9.Think of someone you can show kind-
ness to ( Opens us to Love).
Dr. Allen will be presenting a powerful
seminar every month on a range of topics

which will enrich us. For more informa-
tion on the seminars or for assistance call

Toastmasters ac-
knowledge armed
forces at club meeting
By Canishka Alexander
The Toastmasters Lighthouse Beamers
Club members met for their regular club
meeting on November 11 at the Conch
Inn Conference Room. The theme select-
ed by Kenisha Cornish, vice president of
Education, was Salute to Armed Forces.
Although there were no speakers that eve-
ning, those in attendance were enriched
and humbled by what they learned about
our nation's heroes some of whom were
During the education session of the
meeting, Toastmasters and guests were
given a brief history of a significant day in
Bahamian history known as Armistice Day
or Remembrance Day. Although the day
is celebrated under a number of different
names, the meaning behind it remains the
Remembrance Day is set aside to hon-
our and celebrate our veterans who served
and sacrificed their lives in World War I
and World War II, and in The Bahamas, it
was celebrated on November 14.
The name of Capt. Leonard Thompson,
an Abaconian who fought in World War
II as a bomber pilot, was mentioned. Fel-
low Toastmaster Corp. Erica Colebrooke,
who serves as a member of the Royal Ba-
hamas Police Force, was applauded. The
dedicated service of officers who serve
on government-related agencies that pro-
tect or country like the Royal Bahamas
Defence Force and Royal Bahamas Police
Force were acknowledged.
Next, the significance behind the sym-
bolic red poppies that are often worn dur-
ing this time was revealed. Not only were
the poppies observed as they grew among
the graves of those who were buried in
Flanders Fields following the wars. The
poppy is also said to have medicinal quali-
ties and was applied to wounds to numb
the pain.
JA Orientation and
Charter Service
By Mirella Santillo
This year's new Junior Achievers' ori-
entation meeting was held on November
13th at Friendship Tabernacle. Over 30
students belonging to five companies at-

tended the meeting directed by Junior
Achievement Executive Director Lionel
Elliot, who came to train the new group of
Junior Achievers and to attend the Charter
Service the following day.
After reviewing the concepts of JA and
explaining the functioning of the organiza-
tion, Mr Elliot urged the students to turn
off the television sets and stay away from
Facebook, but to study instead to learn as
much as they could. They were advised not
to miss any of the Junior Achievement's
weekly meetings and encouraged to learn
the JA pledge as well as familiarize them-
selves with the points system that would
help their company reach the level of "Best
Company of the Year."
The five sponsors this year are the three
government corporations: Bahamas Elec-

erage Corporation, the groups that started
Junior Achievement on Abaco, and two
private entities, First Caribbean Bank, a
sponsor for the second year in a row, and a
new sponsor, Baker's Bay Golf and Ocean
Club. This year the orientation for the ad-
visors was held separately, a month ear-
lier, and the five groups had already held
meetings during which they elected their
presidents and chose a name and a motto
for their companies. BEC pledged to be
"Bold Excellent Chasers Co-op" (carrying
out operation perfection). BTC's company
will be doing business under the "Talk It

Pilot Club member was Neulessa Major,
who called the president from each club
forward for the initiation part of the cer-

candle, the remaining members who were
present were called up to take part in the
ceremony. Mrs. Major led the initiation
of the new members. She told them that

to them stating that the president of the
best club will receive an all expense paid
trip to the Pilot International conference
in July 2011 to be held in Dallas, Texas.
She stated that some of the criteria for this
trip are attending meetings, being active in
community activities, fund-raising, having
the right attitude towards service and their
enthusiasm. Refreshments were served at
the end of the ceremony.
