U.S. Ambassador visits Abaco schools

Boating Campaign."

Nicole Avant promotes water and boating safety
By Timothy Roberts
United States Ambassador to The Baha-
Lumas, Nicole Avant, accompanied by repre-
sentatives from the U.S. Coast Guard and
.- the Royal Bahamas Defense Force, visited
school children on Abaco on June 15 to
--, share boat and water safety tips and to dis-
tribute life jackets to students.
- - -The Ambassador along with her assis-
tants visited Agape Christian School stu-
dents along with the head of the Ranger
program, Navy Seaman Andy Deveaux,
and the US. Coast Guard's Lieutenant
Commander Brian Betz, who shared wa-
ter and boat safety tips and encouraged the
children to always be prepared before they
go in the water.
Abaco is the first place for this program
to be launched, according to the Ambas-
sador, who said the island was chosen be-
cause of its "vibrant maritime culture and
because your community is shaped by its
relationship to the sea." She stressed to
the students to be safe as they play in and
around the water over the summer months.
"You are all so blessed to live in Ab-

gave out life jackets and materials promoting water safety. Abaco was the first FaTilly Island where the program was promoted.

dor Avant. "But with this gift comes one
important responsibility - always think of
safety first when you are on the water."
Mrs. Avant was impressed with the
Ranger Program, lauding the young people
as the leaders of tomorrow and encouraged
them to continue their hard work.
U.S. Coast Guard's Northern Command
was thanked for the generous donation of
life jackets and, together with the RBDF
officers, distributed them to all the students
in attendance. The children were then in-

structed on how to put the jackets on and
adjust them to fit snugly.
While visiting the Hope Town School,
the Ambassador was greeted by Anna
Sweeting, 12-year-old blind student, and
was treated to a medley of Bahamian songs
by the students. Mrs. Avant answered
many questions from the curious students
about life vests as well as what her job is
as Ambassador.
Lt. Commander Betz said, "Our role
is safe boating." He explained that they
are reaching out through schools to target
young people in order to help develop safe

Students also received a boat safety ac-

Dante Richard, a student of Hope Town

setting a new Bahamian Record.
The record-breaking blue was
caught on the second day of the
Treasure Cay Championship, as an-
gler David Albury of Man-O-War
fought the big blue for three hours
17 minutes before being able to
bring the fish to gaff.
"When we saw the fish in the
spread, we could not believe our
eyes," said Double Dag owner
Don McKinney of Fort Lauderdale,
Florida. "We scrambled to clear the
light tackle and get in position just
in time for the giant blue to crash
the port short."
He said, "It came out of the wa-
ter; it was an amazingly big fish.
Its hump and dorsal fin came out of
water and to me it was the biggest
fish I'd ever seen."
McKinney went on to say, "Af-
ter years of tournament fishing, we
knew the fish was over 900 pounds
but we never imagined it to be over
1,100 pounds." Team Double Dog
has been competing in the Bahamas
Billfish Championship for more
than 10 years and the Team won the
Championship title in 2009.
An exhausted David Albury said,
"I was so excited that I never real-
ized that I was in the chair for more

than three hours. It wasn't until we
attempted to boat the fish that I be-
gan to realize its size. My muscles
are aching today but I'm sure I'll
feel much more uncomfortable to-
He continued, "It was an experi-
ence of a lifetime, and I am thankful to
Double Dog for having me on board
to fish with them. It's still a dream;
just dreaming. It still hasn't set in yet.
It is unreal to see something like that,

During a record setting Tournament
the 2011 Bahamas Billfish Champion-
ship saw the Bahamian Marlin record fall
while Team Zeus, the overall champion,
amassed a record number of points for any
team winning the Series.
The Fort Pierce, Florida, based team
amassed 12,000 points by releasing 13 blue
marlin, 12 white marlin and 11 sailfish,
finishing in first or second place at four
out of the five BBC tournaments. With 15
fishing days in the five tournament series,
Zeus released a total of 36 billfish fishing
in the five tournament series.
Junior Davis' Wave Paver, a 61 Gar-
lington from Kissimmee, Florida amassed
9,000 points to capture Second Place Over-
all. Team Wave Paver caught and released
8 blue marlin, 9 white marlin and four sail-
fish during the series.

but to be on the back end of the rod
with it is unbelievable."
According to the Double Dog's
captain, Jason Parker, "We quick-
ly realized that we were going to
have a difficult time getting the
fish through the transom door. We
rigged a 'come along' to keep the
fish straight while everyone pulled
the monster fish aboard."
The previous Bahamas blue mar-
lin record was 1060.5 pounds estab-

lished by Sam Jennings of Miami,
Florida, in 1979 while fishing an-
other Bahamas Billfish Champion-
ship tournament. According to BBC
president Al Behrendt, "All of the
blue marlin over 900 pounds caught
in the Bahamas have been caught
during BBC tournaments. What is
significant about the new Bahamas
blue marlin record is that, for the
very first time, the record it is held
by a Bahamian, David Albury."

The overall winners of the Bahamas Billfish Cli ,ipi ,, ip was the Team Zeus that earned
a record number of points. The group caught and released 13 blue marlin, 12 white mar-
lin and 11 sailfish during the five tournaments. The first tournament was at Treasure Cay
Resort. Tournaments two and three were on Eleuthera *-i/l, number four was at Orchid
Bay on Guana Cay. The final tournament was back at Treasure Cay Resort where the
final awards ceremony was held. Organizer of this prestigious fishing championship is Al

R/C plane enthusiasts
host Fun Day
By Timothy Roberts
Remote Control (R/C) hobbyists from
Abaco were joined by ten fellow enthusi-
asts from Nassau for a day of high flying
fun with operators showing off their skills
with airplanes and helicopters at the Stan-
ton Chea Air Field just south of Spring
City on June 12.


Lawrence Collie and Marcel Maury said
their interest in putting together this event
was to reignite interest in the Abaco R/C
Club and spark interest for new members
to join. Mr. Collie would like to see the
various clubs (remote control cars, planes,
boats and helicopters) grow.
They will be having regular meetings
at the airfield on the last Sunday of each
month for the local guys to get together
with the hope that they can get more people
involved. They will have flying lessons for
those who would like to learn as well.
A variety of model planes and helicop-
ters were flown, from realistic replicas of
old and new planes to specially designed
aerobatic planes. Some were small and
light enough to carry in one hand while
others sported up to a six-foot wing-span.
Operators showcased their skills with
aerobatic flying and amazing tricks with

flips and turns, at times hovering their
planes close to the ground.
Hot dogs, chips, mangoes and drinks
were on sale to spectators who enjoyed
meeting other hobbyists and learning
something new as they took turns flying
their planes and helicopters.

The Esther Network is
active in Central Abaco
By Samantha V. Evans
The Esther Network community group
for females in Central Abaco has been
making a positive impact on girls and
women on the island as founder Nurse
Trinika Williams has a passion for help-
ing females reach their full potential. So
far since she began late last year, she has
held cooking classes and educational ses-
sions for them. The cooking classes are
held at Soul Saving Ministries where she
is a member. At the cooking classes, the
females have learned to make dumpling
soup and cheese cake. After they make the
food, they enjoy a feast together.
The females have learned about the im-
portance of having high self-esteem and
making good decisions. Nurse Williams
spoke to them about the many sexually
transmitted infections that are out there
that can be transmitted if they practice un-
safe sex. She spoke to them about AIDS,
Syphilis, Chlamydia and others. When
they have respect for themselves and have

high self-esteem, they are less likely to put
themselves in situations that would be un-
safe. They cannot always tell if someone is
infected by looking at them so they need to
be even more careful if they plan to engage
in activities of a sexual nature.
The females thoroughly enjoy the ses-
sions. Ms. Williams told the ladies that
she will offer hair grooming classes and
teach them how to cut their own eye-
brows. She is very skilled as a hair stylist
so she can teach them how to look their
best at all times. She hopes that through
the sessions that she is able to empower
more women so that they will realize that
they are blessed and highly favored by

God. Therefore, they do not have to sell
themselves short by making bad decisions
or having a lot of children at a young age.
BAIC farmers' and
crafters' market
By Robin Termath
Construction is under way on the new
farmers and crafters market on Don MacK-
ay Boulevard in Marsh Harbour. This is
a project of the Bahamas Agricultural and
Industrial Corporation. Project Manager
Mario Avella hopes the project will be
completed by August of this year. The two
60-foot by 80-foot structures will have a
wide open space between them with a 20-
foot by 30-foot stage at the back of the
property for shows and events. Beside the

new structures, the old Ministry of Works
building will be remodeled to accommo-
date public washroom facilities and admin-
istrative offices of BAIC.
The new steel and concrete structures are
being built to the most stringent Miami-Dade
building code and are designed to withstand
150 mph winds. Heavy concrete footings
and solid steel posts and beams mean the
buildings will be around to serve the Abaco
community for many years to come. Cur-
rently, there are four to five people working
on the project full time.
Crabs, crabs, crabs
By Robin Termath
Bahamians love to eat crabs, especially

big land crabs. This local delicacy is avail-
able only at certain times of the year and
only from certain places. Cardinal Gaitor
of Moore's Island catches white crabs and
brings them into Marsh Harbour to sell.
Mr. Gaitor is a lobster fisherman by
trade. However, when lobster season clos-
es at the end of April, he turns his attention
to the land to hunt the white crabs which he
finds on the cays around Moore's Island.
One of the more remote communities of
Abaco, Moore's Island is approximately
28 miles from the mainland. There are
two settlements on this small island of ap-

Please see Central Page 9

The concrete foundations are being prepared for two structures at the BAIC property in
Marsh Harbour that will be a farmers' and crafters' market. The two open buildings with
roofs only will accommodate many stalls and be suitable for community events as well.
The project is expected to be completed by August.

The Editor Says

Abaco's largest tourism event is now
underway, the 36th Regatta Time in Abaco
sailing event. Being a water-oriented pro-
gram, most Abaco residents are unaware
that it is taking place. The exceptions are
those people living in one of the towns
where the evening social events are held.
Several hundred sailors from Nassau, Aba-
co, Florida and points further away are be-
ing entertained. Extending nine days, from
July 1 in Green Turtle Cay through July 9
in Hope Town, the sailors are being ex-
posed to our marine charms and heritage.
Typically, the boats are divided into five
or six divisions according to boat design.
This lets pros race against other pros and
keeps the cruising boats, affectionately
called mother tubs, racing each other.
Races vary from traditional triangular
Olympic courses to two races that begin
at one location and finish elsewhere. The
first of these races is from Treasure Cay
to Guana Cay that will take place on July
4 while the other race takes the boats from
Marsh Harbour to Hope Town on July 7.
Neither of these is a straight line course but
includes various islands as markers mixed
with other course changes.
The Regatta's original goal is still valid
- to entice new boaters to cross the Gulf
Stream and sample Abaco's unchallenged
cruising area. Along with newcomers are
the steady repeat sailors who come year
after year to enjoy the area and to have a
chance to take home one of Pete Johnston's
bronze art trophies.
Besides attracting sailors, Regatta Time
draws at least as many shore-based visitors
who come just to enjoy the social aspects
of the Regatta. The venue changes nightly
and varies from street parties on Green
Turtle Cay and Marsh Harbour to beach
parties in Treasure Cay to a Junkanoo eve-
ning in Hope Town.
Tourism professionals who watch arriv-
al statistics know when the Regatta is un-
derway as airport arrivals show a distinct
increase at the end of June and early July.
Wholesale grocery and liquor sales show
a similar increase as the retail stores and
shops experience an increase in business.
Restaurants and bars experience a similar


increase in sales.
Hotel rooms, rental houses and dock
slips fill, then vacate as the boats and
crews move through the area. Some crews
will rent a house or hotel rooms in central
Abaco as a home base, then venture out
each day to the location of that days action.
The opening beach party on July 1,
Cheeseburgers in Paradise on Fiddle Cay,
serves as the late registration for last min-
ute skippers. The logistics for that party
are daunting. Green Turtle Cay resident
Bobb Henderson has a magnificent crew
of volunteers who spend a day getting the
beach ready. At the close of the party, the
beach is cleaned and restored to its original
pristine condition.
As you read this, Saturday's first race
will be over and the awards given at the
Settlement Point party on Green Turtle
Cay. On Sunday the fleet will move to
Treasure Cay. On Monday the race takes
everyone to Guana Cay where the race
terminates. The celebration is at Grab-
bers that night. Then the fleet moves on to
Marsh Harbour and Hope Town. See page
8 in section B for the complete schedule.
It is interesting to note that Abaco is
noted for its marine tourism thrust, and
this regatta is a 36-year testimony to that
concept. Nassau officials are beginning
to catch on and are looking for ways to
increase boating tourism in the Family Is-
The newly organized association, Ma-
rine Operators of The Bahamas, has just
accessed $40,000 from European sources
to fund a nine-month study to formulate a
master plan for maritime tourism growth
throughout the country. Tourism and the
Marine Operators association have con-
cluded that for a country with more water
than land, marine visitors are beneficial.
We suggest that a good place for them
to start their research is to view Abaco's
proven success at luring boating visitors.
Statistics of boating visitors for the year
2010 put Bimini first with 14,493. In sec-
ond place was Grand Bahama with 6,774
and Abaco was a close third with 6,174.

"First time to the islands?" a gravelly
voice breathed into my ear.
I inched forward and recoiled.
During the flight from Fort Lauderdale
to Marsh Harbour I had avoided any in-
teraction with the passenger seated directly
behind me, a man probably in his late fif-
ties with a booming voice.
Several times I had slid down in my seat
and feigned sleep.
He was one of those loud-mouthed in-
dividuals that the Desiderata suggests you
"avoid." His knowledge of Abaco was vast
but unfortunately incorrect. "I know all of

s premier to

New Providence was fourth with 2,699
and Exuma fifth with 1,641. Apparently,
the figures represent people, not boats.
With Bimini being only 50 miles from
Miami, it gets a lot of weekend boaters
dashing across the Gulf Stream in out-
boards and go-fasts. Likewise, Grand
Bahama, being 60 miles from West Palm
Beach, gets its share of small boats dash-
ing over to visit a foreign country. It would
be interesting to see the average stay for
boaters going to Bimini or Grand Bahama
compared to the average stay on Abaco.
Many of our boaters stay for several weeks
to several months annually. Also interest-
ing would be details on the boats, such as
open outboards or cruising boats with on-
board accommodations. For the most part
we do not wish to emulate Bimini's success
with the day and weekend trippers. We are
quite happy to accept those who start their
voyage through the Caribbean, but who
end up staying here.
We realize that having a 100-mile pro-
tected inland cruising area coupled with
heritage towns on the cays does make an
attractive incentive for boaters. This is a
unique combination.
Local Government's
Town committees and/or councils have
now been formed for most of Abaco. South
Abaco's council, headquartered in Sandy
Point, is waiting for the Cherokee Town
Committee to be formed as insufficient
persons nominated to form a quorum.
There will be either another election or the
Minister will appoint persons to fill the va-
cant seats.
Councils now wait for central govern-
ment to announce local budget figures
for the coming year. It is not yet known
if Abaco's local government councils will
receive the amounts requested by the out-
going councils.
When budgets are announced, councils
can proceed with town and district con-
tracts and other obligations. For the most
part, the previous councils laid the ground-

Abaco's cays (Kays to him!) intimately,"
he professed and then confused their geo-
graphical bearings. Throughout the jour-
ney he had nit-picked about everything in
The Bahamas from restaurant service to
taxi prices.
I was puzzled why he bothered returning.
We were crossing the Marles, a sure
sign that the airport was just moments
away. Thank heavens!
I had begun gathering up my things so I
could beat a hasty retreat.
He must have sensed movement ahead.
"See those down there," he said, tap-
ping me on the shoulder through a chink
between the seats
I glanced below me at the partial body
of a small aircraft which has been there for
as long as I can remember.
"Most don't make it, you know," he
I ignored his remark.
However, his words had roused the young
girl seated next to him in the aisle seat from
her slumbers. She craned her neck to see
past him out of the cabin window.
"Really!" she exclaimed.
"Yes," he assured her. "Happens all
the time."
I turned round and my eyes met hers.
She was pale, terrified that her Fate was
to be sealed with those poor souls below.
"Listen," I said, unable to hold my
tongue. "It's not true. I live here and that's

work for this new fiscal year.
Two items could change the fiscal out-
look - hurricane damage or receiving sub-
stantially less money than planned for.
New council members are not mandated to
follow the financial plan laid out by their
predecessors, but it is rare that major de-
viations are made.
A major item for the Central Abaco Dis-
trict Council will be the landfill contract that
expires this fall and currently has an annual
management budget of nearly $500,000.
Recent studies by the Department of Envi-
ronmental Health suggest changes may be
made as the site has not lived up to expec-
tations. The site was initially handed to the
Central Abaco Council as a model landfill
operation, but three years later it is consid-
ered a very expensive dump.
One shortcoming of local government is
the lack of continuity as new town commit-
tees and district councils are formed. Con-
tinuity is preserved in central government
by the civil service. Although bloated and
somewhat dysfunctional, it is the civil ser-
vice that moderates the political swings of
those elected to Parliament. Local govern-
ment has no equivalent group or person to
moderate the succession from the previous
group to the newly elected persons.
Administrators partially help with this
change, but their role is mainly to advise
the members as to their legal obligations.
Also, administrators are subject to transfer
which then loses any continuity they may
impart to the system. A new administrator
will know the rules but will not know the
nuances of the various towns in his new
Successful succession or continuity does
play a role for successful management
by a district council, particularly Central
Abaco, the country's largest local govern-
ment district. Freeport's local government
is arguably larger; however, the political
system there is a strange alliance with the
Grand Bahama Port Authority.
Our readership can expect to hear more
about our local government bodies as they
come together and exercise their authority.

I glared at big mouth. He was grinning.
I realized that he got his jollies from terror-
izing women.
There was silence and then he asked.
"What island do you live on?"
"Elbow Cay," I replied curtly.
"I can show you Green Turtle Cay
(Kay) he offered and then without a pause,
"Wanna come fishing' with me?"
Not now, not ever, and especially not
with you, I wanted to say.
I laughed. "No thanks, don't fish."
"I been coming here for 20 years. I
know everyone. Great little island."
The last three words were uttered in a
patronizing tone.
"So how about you showing me Elbow
Cay?" he suggested.
Not sure Elbow Cay wants to see you,
I reflected.
"Sorry, not available," I said, scratching
my head so he could see my wedding ring
which, of course, he failed to notice. He
could see nothing above his vastly inflated
ego; it was all consuming and blocked out the
rest of the world, including beautiful Abaco.
It angered me that he had instilled fear
into the young girl and had tried to do the
same to me.
"I fly, you know," he said, adding,
"small planes just like this." His large
arms made a sweeping gesture, encom-
passing the interior of the aircraft.

South Abaco Farmer's
Association meets
About 20 persons attended the South
Abaco Farmer's Association meeting on
June 12 to hear an update on the associa-
tion's progress. Stephen Knowles, Asso-
ciation president, was critical of those who
have been assigned five or more acres of
leased land but have shown no activity on
their land.
He told the farmers that their farm plots
have been inspected by BAIC staff from
Nassau and in general they were dismayed
by the lack of physical activity and the poor
level of interest shown by lease payments
not being made. Some of the assigned plots
are being reclaimed and being reassigned
to others. BAIC inspectors did note that
several farmers have shown outstanding
effort and proven results.
To encourage farmers, the Agriculture
Department will donate tractor time to
help them. Farmers who invest in one or
two hours of tractor time will be given an
equal one to two hours by the Department
of Agriculture. This means that a one-hour

investment of approximately $100 by a
farmer will yield two hours of tractor time
for land preparation. This could prepare an
acre or two depending on the site's con-
dition. Most of the plots are on original
sugarcane acreage and do not require ex-
cessive work.
Soon, 1500 fruit trees will be shipped to
Abaco to be distributed to farmers who have
prepared their land. This tree assortment
includes avocado, mango, guava, soursop,
Persian lime, sugar apple and others. The
intention is to get a variety of trees growing
so there is material for grafting later.
The Association has prepared a site for
the Association headquarters just off the
Capt. Ernest Dean Highway on the road
leading into the farm area.
Pastor Knowles announced that BAIC
has contracted with him to provide exten-
sion services to the north and south Abaco
farmers. Part of his responsibilities is to
report to BAIC on the progress being made
on the agricultural plots. He encouraged
those who are serious to begin by making
some improvements to their site. He was
saddened to say that many plots do not
even show evidence that a vehicle has ever
been parked there.
Refreshments were served at the con-
clusion of the evening meeting held in the
Dundas Town Burial Society building.
season is here
By Robin Termath
There is relief for these hot summer
days. Several local farmers are bringing
huge juicy watermelon into Marsh Har-
bour by the truckload. One of them is

Hank Rutherford from Cherokee Sound.
He and his family are growing hundreds
of these sweet watermelons. It is a fam-
ily affair with his children, Jessica, George
and Juliet, helping to harvest about 2000
pounds at a time. They sell their fruit from
the back of their truck on Don MacKay
Growing watermelons has been a hobby
for Mr. Rutherford for many years, but he
decided to grow enough to sell only two
years ago. The local watermelon season is
a short one, lasting only about a month. So
now is the time to take advantage of this
homegrown treat.

Hank Ruil', f', of Cherokee Sound and
his daughter Jessica are a couple of the
farmers who are producing hundreds of
delicious watermelons that they sell on

The South Abaco Farmers' Association met on June 12 to be updated on farming news.
Pastor Stephen Knowles, Association president, spoke frankly with them that many are
not actively engaged in farming even though they were leased land for that purpose.

Annalyse Creations
offers a variety of crafts
By Samantha V. Evans
Annalyse Coakley, a local interior de-
signer by trade, started Annalyse Creations
to bring her talent to life. She began de-
signing curtains, comforters and sheets
while in Nassau, and when she came to
Abaco, she continued it on a lesser scale.
Since she loves the spirit of creating
things, she began taking craft classes with
BAIC and learned how to make coconut
jewelry, conch shell jewelry, glass jewelry,
sea shell crafts, handbags and more. She
began making crafts from her home and
found that she was making so much stuff

that she had to start selling them. Annal-
yse started selling her products across from
Forest Heights Academy on June 21st. She
has bracelets, hair barrettes, necklaces,
dolls, mirrors, wreaths, frames, rings and
much more. Her hours are 8:30 a.m. to
6 p.m. Monday to Saturday. She believes
that The Bahamas has a lot of natural re-
sources that can be used to make products
that Bahamians and tourists love and will
be happy to share with their relatives.
Leadership training
was held in Tortola
By Canishka Alexander
Elaine Martinborough of the Department
of Housing was among 28 candidates select-
ed to participate in the Caribbean Disaster
Emergency Management Agency's Leader-

ship and Strategic Planning training course.
The course spanned five days, and took
place in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
The candidates were taught five core
units: leadership; managing operations and
risk management; developing project spec-
ifications, objectives and strategic plan-
ning; managing performance; and group
The training targeted the advancement
of leadership skills and provided tools to
leaders of Disaster Risk Reduction pro-
grams. Ms. Martinborough said that her
leadership skills were definitely advanced
by the course as she became aware of ideas

Although the course was intense, Ms.

Martinborough said that it was an excit-
ing experience to be a part of such a strong
group of people from various cultures and
backgrounds. However, unlike the other
countries represented with three to four can-
didates, she alone had to submit a written
project to complete her certification require-
ments six weeks after the training course.
Nevertheless, Ms. Martinborough felt
that she was fortunate to be selected as the
only candidate from The Bahamas, and
she received valuable information to share
with members of the Central Abaco Dis-
trict Disaster Preparedness Committee on
Abaco and with the National Emergency
Management Agency (NEMA), which was
the sponsoring agency.
Ms. Martinborough added how pleased
she was to see the similarities among the

Marsh Harbour Volunteer Fire Department has begun training classes at the Fire House.
Under the direction of Sgt. Paul Johnson, the lessons are beginning with basics and will
get into more technical areas as they progress. Anyone wanting to be part of the fire
department can attend classes from Noon to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Addressing the group
is Sarone Kennedy.

Junk metal is being accumulated in several areas of Abaco. This is one barges taking a
load from the commercial dock in Murphy Town. These loads of junk are helping to clean
up Abaco. However, in their rush to get more junk metal, some of those collecting are
suspecting of stealing copper and taking metal that is not junk. There is a concern that
artifacts that should remain on Abaco as part of our heritage may also be disappearing.

Junkanoo marks the beginning of summer season

Junkanoo Summer
Festivals begin
By Timothy Roberts
With a full and lively slate of entertain-
ment and great Bahamian food and drinks,
the Junkanoo Summer Festival kicked off
its first event of the year on June 17 at the
Goombay Park in Marsh Harbour with offi-
cial opening remarks brought by Member of
Parliament for South Abaco, Edison Key.
The highlight of the evening was fire
dancer, Action Jackson, who put on an
impressive show as he did the limbo un-
der five flaming poles set at the height of a
man's size ten-and-a-half shoe. He wowed
the crowd with feats of strength, doing the
limbo while carrying people under a flam-
ing pole. The crowd was very impressed
and Action Jackson involved many locals
and visitors in his act.

Equally impressive was the local favor-
ite Royal Bahamas Police Force Marching
Band that entertained the crowd playing
Bahamian music and added a special fea-
ture with a performance of drummers that
included tossing of drumsticks.
The crowd slowly built over the course
of the evening and by 9 p.m. several hun-
dred locals and visitors were enjoying the
festivities and delicious Bahamian treats
like fried fish, jerk pork and chicken,
conch fritters and conch salad as well as a
variety of drinks and refreshments includ-
ing the popular Goombay smash.
The evening's entertainment began with
Brown-tip and T-Time warming up the
visitors with some Rake 'n Scrape music,
assisting MC Shelly Austin, who led the
crowd in some ring play. The Ministry of
Tourism encouraged crowd participation
with a variety of games, giving away Junk-

Local fishermen hear update on bonefish tagging

By Samantha V. Evans
Recently Aaron Adams from Bonefish
and Tarpon Trust was at Friends of the En-
vironment to give bonefishermen and other
concerned persons an update on the bone-
fish tagging research he started in 2009. His
agency is a non-profit science-based conser-
vation agency that raises funds to support
research efforts. He has been doing research
in The Bahamas since 2004. This research
focused primarily on tagging bonefish. They
have now tagged fish on Eleuthera, Abaco,
Grand Bahamas, Andros and Exuma. They

have tagged 1200 fish so far. Their goal is
to tag 2000 in total.
He stated that $141 million is contrib-
uted to the Bahamas economy from sport
fishermen fishing for bonefish through
lodging, boat rentals and fishing guides. He
stated that Abaconians must keep the habi-
tat healthy so that this business will remain
lucrative. Many Abaconians have benefit-
ted from the fishing industry for genera-
tions so it is important that they find ways
to preserve the industry. Through research
done by Mr. Adams and his group, they

can provide
locals with
so that they
can make
the decisions
needed for
the conser-
vation and
preservation Aaron Adams
of the bone-
fishing industry.
Mr. Adams stated that through their
research, they were able to determine the
age, sex and migration of the bonefish. He
compared the data collected from Eleuthera
and Abaco to that of the Florida Keys. He

stated that in the islands studied, the age
of the fish was more spread out, the fish
were smaller and the male fish were more
prominent here. He noted that even though
the Florida Keys were known for larger
fish, not many of them are seen anymore.
He noted that the Bahamas has the high-
est tagging and recapture rate of 1197 and
16 respectively. Further, the Bahamas is
now one of the hot spots for large bonefish.
He encourages local fishermen to continue
tagging fish to assist with the research. On
Saturday morning Mr. Adams retrieved
the receivers from the bonefish areas being
studied and asked locals who have frozen
bonefish to get them to him so that he can
take them back to his agency to study.

Bonefishermen listened to Aaron Adams of the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust as he explained
the research he is doing on Abaco. He is studying the status of bonefish, its population,
health and other indicators of its well being.

Local Government elections go smoothly

By Timothy Roberts
With few surprises and good voter par-
ticipation in most districts the sixth Local
Government elections went smoothly as
the electorate went to the polls on June 23
to make their marks.
While elections took place in almost ev-
ery township, there were a few that had no
need for voting. The Hope Town District
nominated the exact number on Guana Cay
and Hope Town. But on Man-O-War only
two candidates nominated out of three.
Similarly, Sandy Point nominated the
exact number. The Cherokee Township,
which consists of Cherokee Sound, Casua-
rina Point and Bahama Palm Shores, are
short three committee members. In such a
case where not enough persons nominate,
the Minister responsible for Local Govern-
ment, the Hon. Bryan Woodside, will ap-
point members to serve.
Little Abaco nominated the exact num-
ber of its Town Committee.
Administrator Cephas Cooper noted
that polling started slowly but by the end
of the day activity increased at the poll sta-
tions. He said the presiding officers and
other poll workers did an excellent job,
working as a team.
Mr. Cooper was pleased to announce
that there were no incidents throughout
the day and there were no concerns with
the voting process. "It was a good dry run
for the poll workers," Mr. Cooper said.
"There are a few things we need to tweak
going into the general elections, but ev-
erything worked well, and everyone was
given their right to vote."
Most town committees returned some
incumbents to office while adding a few
new faces. Over the course of the next few
weeks councils on the mainland will ap-

point boards to deal with Town Planning,
Port Authority and Hotel Licensing.

Town committee members reflect on accomplishments

By Samantha V. Evans
In 2008 the dream team led by Cay
Mills took office as the new Dundas Town
Township Committee, committed to serv-
ing the communities of Dundas Town and
Central Pines. The group immediately
went to work and successfully completed
numerous projects. They wanted to create
a beach in the community.
According to Deputy Chairman Faron
Newbold, the late Godfrey Ferguson had
the idea of developing Brown's Bay. The
ides was adopted by Silbert Mills in 2001
when he was chairman. Under his lead-
ership the first phase was begun which
consisted of their being granted access to
the property, then landscaping it. In 2005
Chairman Augustine Williams and his
team started phase two of the project by
installing a playground, wall of heroes and
bathrooms. In 2008 Cay Mills' dream team
came into office and completed phase three
of the project which included dredging a
canal and pouring a boat ramp, building
five huts, placing boulders around a beach
area and barging sand in.

In 2009 they began their second proj-
ect which was restoring the Burial Society
building. This building was destroyed by
Hurricane Floyd and was in bad shape.
They felt it necessary to extensively re-
pair the building because it is very valu-
able to the community. They decided to
add on an office at the same time so that
they could take local government to the
community. When the building was com-
pleted, they opened it for public use free
of charge. The committee has also hosted
free health seminars and educational pro-
grams at the site.
The third project they did was to con-
struct a tennis court at Central Abaco Pri-
mary to encourage more sporting skills in
the community. On completion of the ten-
nis court, four scholarships were provided
for female students who have an interest
in pursuing their talent in this area at the
college level.
The committee would like to express
heartfelt thanks to Bobby Russell for his
dedication to the construction of this ten-
nis court from the inception to the end.

He volunteered his time and resources
to ensuring that the project was properly
completed. Additionally, Mr. Russell has
agreed to offer free classes for persons in
the Dundas Town community.
These three years have not been easy
but the members persevered. They faced
numerous challenges, but the committee
stood strong and remained committed to
the course for which they were elected.
They are happy to state that their honesty
and pride still remain intact.
The committee members would like to
have more contact with central govern-
ment, especially in the areas of funding
and communication. They believe that in
order for local government to run properly
there must be a direct connection with ev-
ery government agency. In many instances
persons wanting jobs contact local gov-
ernment officials before they go to cen-
tral government agencies. The committee

would like to be more involved
There is also mis-communication as to
when capital projects are coming to the
island. They would like to be consulted
before plans are made for any project that
will affect the community. In most instanc-
es, local government does not have hands-
on approach to such projects. Therefore,
employment assistance cannot be given to
Further, they believe that the operation
of local government is one that functions on
majority; no one person runs the meetings
or makes decisions. It is important that ev-
eryone knows that the chairman cannot give
approval for one cent of local government
money to be spent. In order for any project
to be approved and funded, it must be voted
on by the majority of the members at the
meetings. Local government is not about an
individual; it is about a team.

Former Dundas Town Chairman expresses

disappointment in Committee
By Samantha V. Evans and offered contracts to family members.
Cay Mills was the chairman of the dream Before their term ended, he stated that the
team that served Dundas Town for the past committee did not meet in two months, re-
three years and according to him this term sulting in their losing $20,000. He added
he served in office has been hell. He said that the deputy chairman was allowed to
that he has been totally disrespected and take over the meetings with the help of the
his team had no regard for law and order, administrator.
He believes that the committee was corrupt


Despite the fact that the Dundas Town Committe had problems, they have set goals for
themselves and have completed several major projects. The group has already named the
projects that they hope to accomplish in this new term in office.

We would like to make corrections to
the story about the Pre-Independence ser-
vice that was held on June 8 and report
on in the June 15 issue. The artile should
have said that the keynote speaker was De-

fence Force Chief Petty Officer Peterson
D. James of the Royal Bahamas Defence
Force. The Flamingo was patrolling in the
Southern Bahamas.

As the Boat Harbour Round Up Series
at Abaco Beach Resort concluded on June
18, one team, Sea Angel, stood out from
the rest, taking the first place victory over-
all and receiving the Penny Turtle Memo-
rial Trophy.
The Baytown, Texas, based team aboard
a 59-foot Weaver was led by Capt. Newt
Cagle. The Sea Angel also received the
trophies for Top Captain, Newt Cagle, and
Top Mate, Tony Aliota.
Coby Williams, who reeled in a
600-pound plus blue marlin on 30-pound
test, said they had decent steady fishing
the whole time. He said the Round Up is a
very nice tournament, and he hopes more
boats join next year. Capt. Cagle agreed
and added that there was good food and
entertainment as well.
Fort Pierce based Zeus took home sec-
ond place overall and first place in Leg II.
The crew was lead by Capt. Glenn Cam-
eron. Capt. Cameron said the fishing was

"fair" as the first day began poorly due to
the full moon. "After that, it improved as
we had a shot at a grand slam (catching a
blue marlin, white marlin and a sailfish on
the same day) just 10 miles east of Elbow
Cay." They ended up with two white mar-
lin and missed on two sailfish.
Third place overall was awarded to
Predator from Jupiter, Forida. The crew
was led by Capt. Eric Swenson aboard a
65-foot Hatteras.
The Round Up Series weekends were
packed with activities with a country west-
ern flair. Both legs of the series kicked
off with the anglers arriving to the newly
renovated marquee. Anglers, friends and
family were treated throughout each week-
end to delicious meals. In keeping with
the theme, nightly entertainment was pro-
vided by Fire and the Goat Peppers Band,
who kept the crowd on their feet.
Proceeds from the tournament will go to
Every Child Counts.

Junior Achievers finish year with a banquet

By Mirella Santillo
The fifth annual Junior Achievers' ban-
quet was held at the Abaco Beach Resort on
June 25. It was a grand affair with the five
JA companies on Abaco represented. The
highlight of the event was the announce-
ment of the Most Distinguished Achiever.
Seven were nominated for this title which
ultimately was bestowed on Quitel Charl-
ton. She accepted her prizes with tears of
joy in her eyes. She received $1000 from
the local JA organization, a full four-year
scholarship to attend the College of The
Bahamas and an I-pad. Quitel had earlier
won the national JA Speech Competition,
and she was the president of the BEC CO-
OP company.
Keynote speaker for the event was the
Hon. Charles Maynard, Minister of Sports
and Youth who congratulated Quitel on her
accomplishments. He elaborated on the
theme Blazing a Trail to Success. Borrow-

ing a quote by Dr. Earl Lovelace, What
will we do with what we have done? he
asked the Junior Achievers, "What are you
going to do with what you have learned?"
He named former Junior Achievers who
had blazed trails to success by making
contributions in many areas of life. He ex-
pressed his happiness in being able to share
that special evening on Abaco.
Edison Key, MP for South Abaco, has
been a supporter of JA since its establish-
ment on Abaco and attributed the importance
of JA to the fact that it helped close the gap
between what was being taught in school and
how it should be applied in life. He felt it
is important to instilled in young people the
value of giving back to the community.
Lionel Elliott, outgoing Executive Di-
rector, announced the Company of the
Year. For the second consecutive time
this award went to First Caribbean Bank.
Sponsors, advisors and companies that had

distinguished themselves through the year
were recognized. The STARS of Baker's
Bay won the Sport's Day, CO-OP of BEC
won the Best Trade Fair and ACE of First
Caribbean Bank boasted the Top Return
on its shares. These received trophies and
plaques. An individual award, a laptop
computer compliments of Commonwealth
Bank, went to Quitel Charlton for selling
the most raffle tickets. Erolene Hanna was
declared Advisor of the Year and was re-
warded with a laptop.
Philip Simon is the new JA Executive
Vice President.

Quitel Charlton, right, named Most Dis-
tinguised Achiever among the five JA com-
panies on Abaco, received an I-pod being 1B
presented by Theresa Pinder, a JA commit-
tee member.

Junior Achievers Trade Fair

JA companies enjoy final parties

By Mirella Santillo
On June 14 two Junior Achievement
sponsors, BEC and First Caribbean Bank,
held farewell parties for the Junior Achiev-
ers they sponsored. It was an occasion for
the advisors and the students to get togeth-
er informally and summerize the year's
The guest speaker at the BEC function
was Stacy Jennings, a former JA member
presently employed as an Environmental
Health and Safety Officer with BEC. She
attributed her career success to JA and gave
the students a short but boosting speech.
The BEC office manager, Everette Stra-
chan, recognized the students and their
advisors, but expressed a little disappoint-
ment at the overall results. He invited the
Achievers to return next year prepared to
be more actively involved in their com-

pany and take the opportunity offered by
JA seriously. Advisor Errolene Hanna pre-
sented awards to the outstanding JA mem-
It was a jovial occasion at First Ca-
ribbean Bank as the bank manager Iris
Henchell and Juanyette Curry, one of the
advisors, congratulated the students for
their achievements during the year. Each
student was awarded a certificate that rec-
ognized the particular talent they brought
forward during the year.
Applauds exploded when Ms. Henchell
announced the dividend return on the ACE
shares: $35.35 for $3 investment!
Three members, Shanae Curry, Jody
Martin and Lloynette Russell, graduated
from high school and will not return next
year. They were acknowledged by Ms.
Curry and were givin a farewell gift.

By Timothy Roberts
The Junior Achievers held their fifth an-
nual Trade Fair where the five JA compa-
nies displayed the products they made and
also offered other snacks and treats for sale.
Ishmael Morley, director of the JA pro-
gram for Abaco, said, "The kids came out
to display their talents and show off their
products." Each booth would be judged on
originality, creativity and overall appear-
The Water and Sewage Company, called
SPLASH, designed as its main product a
coloring/reading book. SPLASH President
Damara McIntosh said the group of seven
had a rough beginning because they were
late in starting, but she said it is getting

better. She felt that the JA program has
taught her a lot about business.
Bahamas Telecommunications Com-
pany's Talk It Up team, headed by Blair
Saunders, said the experience has been
great, and the team work has been good.
The group, made up of five Achievers,
made hair accessories as their main prod-
uct. Blair has loved being in her group,
and it has taught her more about how to
manage money and a lot about teamwork.
First Caribbean Bank's team called ACE
was headed by Ashley Burrows, who said
their day was going great, and they were
selling a lot of their product. The group

Make this summer a safe one

By Dr. James Hull, D
Summer is here and our children are
out of school. The farthest thing from their
minds or ours is getting hurt during this
few fun months. When I drive around, I
see accidents waiting to happen. Accidents
such as motorists driving too close to peo-
ple on bicycles. People on bicycles riding
in a manner and place that can easily lead
to an accident.
It is not just bicycles, but children on
roller blades or skate boards as well. All
too often children and adults ride these
"vehicles" without the most basic of safety
equipment, like a helmet. The majority of
brain injuries can be avoided by using a
simple, inexpensive helmet.
What I want people to think about is
what if tomorrow one of your children hit
their head and had a brain injury. A brain
injury often changes the entire direction of
a person's life. It can change their person-
ality, it can make a happy person angry, or
somebody who is usually well controlled
into a spontaneous person who starts fights
and gets in trouble with the law. Worse
yet, the brain injury can lead to death.
Motorists, please watch people on bi-
cycles and make sure you do not approach
too close to them. When you pass some-
body on a bicycle, give then some room. If
you are on a bicycle, look before you cross

a street and do not assume that cars see you
or will not hit you. A car may make a mis-
take, and the end result will be a scratch on
the car but much greater injuries for you. It
is in a cyclists best interest to watch others
and ride as if everybody around you will
do the wrong thing. That is what you call
defensive riding.
Defensive driving also applies to those
on skate boards and roller blades. If you
are on these blades or boards, you need

Before I finish this article, I want to
touch on golf carts. On the cays children
ride up and down the roads on carts. The
reason we do not allow people to drive be-
fore they are 17 is because of responsibil-
ity levels. Teenage children often forget
what they are doing and the consequences
of their actions. They do not feel that they
can get hurt. Golf cart injuries are some of
the most serious injuries I have seen while
practicing medicine on Abaco. I have seen
people with skull fractures, broken arms
and legs, multiple cuts and in one instance
someone that had almost their entire fore-
head ripped away.
Let's make this a fun and safe summer.
Please think before you ride and drive.

Barefoot Bandit pleads guilty

By Timothy Roberts
Colton Harris-Moore, the 20-year-old man
known as the Barefoot Bandit, pleaded guilty
on June 17 to seven federal charges which he
committed in Oregon and Washington state
while he was still a teenager.
Harris-Moore was captured in Harbour
Island in The Bahamas last July after crash-
landing a plane just north of Sandy Point
he allegedly stole in Indiana. The Barefoot
Bandit was spotted at several locations in
the Marsh Harbour area, allegedly steal-
ing cash from one shop, internet connection
from Curly Tails Restaurant and then steal-
ing a boat which he took to North Eleuthera.
It was there, in Harbour Island, that he was
finally captured by Bahamian police who, act-
ing on a tip, shot out the engine of a boat in
which he was trying to make a getaway.
The government of The Bahamas en-
dured much criticism when they allowed
Harris-Moore quick extradition back to
Seattle to face the federal charges without
facing charges for crimes committed in
The Bahamas. Harris-Moore's only charge
in the Bahamian court was for illegally en-
tering the country.
In his case before the judge he pleaded
guilty under an agreement with prosecutors
that prevents him from profiting from his

crimes. According to the plea deal the Wash-
ington state native could be sentenced to a
maximum of 78 months in prison and will
be ordered to pay more than $1.4 million in
restitution when he is sentenced in October.
Harris-Moore was named a suspect in a
two-year spree of about 80 crimes across
nine Western and Midwestern States, Brit-
ish Columbia and The Bahamas. He will
face trial in state courts, where five Wash-
ington counties have filed a combined 40
criminal counts against him.
Under the 28-page plea agreement,
Harris-Moore, a high school dropout and
self-taught pilot who gained an Internet fol-
lowing as he allegedly taunted authorities
on the run, must forfeit any financial gain
from telling his story.
He pleaded guilty to two counts of bank
burglary, two counts of interstate trans-
portation of a stolen aircraft and one count
each of interstate and foreign transporta-
tion of a stolen firearm, being a fugitive
in possession of a firearm, piloting an air-
craft without a valid license, and interstate
transportation of a stolen vessel.
He is also accused of stealing boats and
planes to hop from island to island in Puget
Sound (north of Seattle), where he grew up
as he kept a step ahead of authorities.

Less than 100 years ago arrangements
were made by the Colonial Service to ac-
commodate workers through contracts in
North America. All types of Bahamians
took advantage in order to survive the de-
pression and the Second World War of the
earlier part of the 20th century. Many of
these "migrant workers" earned the name
of "American Boy" on their return with
adopted American mannerisms.
Even today there is no continuity of ag-
ricultural production over the traditional
"lifetimes of farming" experienced in oth-
er parts of the world such as Africa and
There was, however, a brief spell in
our history when agriculture seemed des-
tined to become a major contributor to the
economy. During the early to late 1800s
pineapple and citrus production became a
major source of foreign revenue for the is-
lands. Farming on Eleuthera, Cat Island,
and southern Abaco became very promi-
nent as did the eastern part of New Provi-
dence. Produce exported to North America
and England made significant contributions
to the islands' welfare. However, the rise
of Hawian pineapple and Florida citrus
plantings soon put paid to that flourishing
After the end of the Second World
War the English government introduced
the Colonial Development Corporation to
various islands in order to foster growth
through agricultural entrepreneurship. The
pineapple project of the best land in South
Eleuthera failed because mechanisation re-
moved the red pineapple soils and intro-
duced raw limestone. This area would later
claim fame as the "Charolais ranch" that
provided the U.S. with its prized French
breeding stock. The Andros project failed

because the fruit and vegetable land se-
lected behind Fresh Creek was a sum-
mer swamp when the rains came, and no
amount of pumps could keep the growing
area dry. It is ironical that here the water
was pumped away from the crops and not
to them. Rice would not even grow in the
perimeter canals and drainage ditches. In
addition produce shipped out, from An-
dros, by barge did not even survive the
journey into Nassau
Over the years attempts have been made
to introduce sugar cane, large citrus groves,
dairy, egg and poultry production to a non-
existent agricultural sector. Some survived
for a number of years but mainly because
protection against competition was the rule
of the day. In the modern era with the ad-
vent of Bahamian accession to the WTO
and the apparent barring of protectionism
in any form, bleak prospects for agricultur-
al enterprise are looming on the Bahamian
horizon. Many feel disillusioned and upset
over the lack of governmental input in or-
der to save the tradition of farming in the
country. The reality is that apart from sub-
sistence production purely for survival, the
Bahamian agricultural sector is a myth and
a non-contributor to any recognisable part
of the economy. In fact, since majority rule
Bahamians have been actively encouraged
to move away from agricultural and menial
work into tourism and financial services.
Today the perception is of agriculture as
being demeaning and subservient work,
close to being on welfare.
The introduction of more modern tech-
nology has recently accounted for some
apparently successful start ups and reno-
vated enterprises in Andros. The use of
more modern techniques, even basic ones
like efficient irrigation, can dramatically
improve yields. Management of soil fertil-
ity and pest control are equally important.
These issues will be dealt with in the fol-
lowing article.

Local Government Junior Council

By Samantha V. Evans
At the start of the 2010-2011 school
year the Local Government Junior Coun-
cil concept was introduced to the Abaco
Central High School students of grades 10
and 11. The students were excited to begin
this new thing that spoke of their making
a difference on their school campus and
becoming leaders and role models among
their peers. The students had an exciting
election process with the nine successful
candidates proudly being sworn into office
as local government junior councillors.
As an outsider, I saw this as a golden op-

portunity for the Parent Teacher Association
and Local Government to work together to
help these students achieve some of the goals
they set for their term in office. Additionally,
this was a great opportunity for some other
agencies to partner with these young people
as well. Like them, I was excited to see what
doors would open for them.
As they began their official duties, the
excitement remained as they sought to
get some of their projects off the ground.
However, they quickly realized that even
though their intentions were good, some
of the projects they wanted to take on re-

Humblestone From Page 8

"Good for you!" I replied.
I could have shared with him my experienc-
es, all positive, of flying in small planes such as
the one we were on, but I saw no point.
I waited for the "Wanna come flyin?"
which fortunately never came.
"Yes," he bragged, "been flying a
while, mainly up north."
So the skies of The Bahamas are spared,
I rejoiced .
"Where did you say you live?" he asked
He had taken a couple of swigs from
a small flask, some alcoholic beverage,
no doubt, some spirit which keeps him in
boastful mode but causes temporary mem-
ory loss.
"Elbow Cay," I repeated
"That near Sandy Point?" he asked.
No point answering that one. He really
knows his Kays!!! I thought.
The plane made its slow descent into the
Marsh Harbour area. For a moment I for-
got about my passenger.
I was almost home. My daughter and
son-in-law would be at the airport. It
would be a reunion despite the fact I had
only been away a couple of months. I could
smell the air, feel the warmth of the island,
familiar faces, memories, my house, the
water, the beach. Conch. ConCH to him.
I couldn't wait.
The wheels of the small plane touched
down tentatively. Not the smoothest of
landings but then again not the smoothest
of surfaces! However, it was a steady ap-
proach made by a competent and experi-
enced pilot.
"Terrible landing. Pilot should go

back to flight school," the familiar voice
I was furious.
"Could have done a better job," he
Sure, I thought.
We got off the plane, and after clearing
immigration we assembled in the adjoining
area to await our bags.
Standing there I observed the pilot
whom I have known for years. I waved to
him and he came to greet me.
"Was that you flying our plane?" the
flying fisherman said.
The young pilot smiled and nodded.
I saw what was coming and I knew I had
to prevent it.
"I thought it was an awful..."
Mister Boom Box was about to say
"landing" when I cut him off...
"Yes," I interjected. "He remarked on
what an awfully good landing it was."
The culprit threw me a glance and was
silent - for the first time since we left Fort
It was a sweet respite for my fellow pas-
sengers and me but short lived.
Outside the airport as I was getting into
the car, he yelled.
"Sure you don't wanna go fishing "
"Nor flyin," I called back.
My son-in-law Chris looked at me puzzled.
"Who was that, Mom?" he asked.
"A flying fisherman," I answered.
"A flying what?" he questioned.
"Let's just say its better in The Baha-
mas," I quoted.......
"Better without them."

quired more approvals than they expected
such as fixing the basketball court and
painting the zebra crossing in front of the
school. Hence, they were unable to get
them off the ground.
However, the students were able to give
two of the bathrooms a temporary face lift
until they could be changed. Their work
made a great difference to the bathrooms
with new paint and a good old-fashioned
The next successful project the students
were able to achieve was purchasing a wa-
ter fountain for the school. These students
worked hard and were prepared to work
even harder if they had had more time and
additional support from those agencies that
could have made these projects possible
for the youth.
Moving forward, I do believe that the
Local Government Junior Council should
return as the concept is a very good one.
As I spoke with some of the leaders, sup-
porters, well wishers and others, they
agree that there are some things that could
make projects go off with less hitches.
Firstly, since this is an initiative of the Lo-
cal Government Junior Council, then it is
only fitting that someone from the Council
office is made the coordinator of this pro-
gram. To assign someone from the school
where the initiative will be carried out as
the coordinator puts that person in a com-
promising position, limiting the projects
that can be undertaken. Further, it opens

the door for too many issues to be swept
under the rug, and the students silenced,
especially those who take this office seri-
ously and want to bring about change. It is
not believed that the intention of the project
is to embarrass anyone but rather to help
students reach their full potential. If the
program is given another chance, it will
take serious partnership will all agencies
concerned and not just lip service.
These young leaders from Abaco Cen-
tral High School, even though handicapped
in many ways, still did a good job. They
had an opportunity to learn about how local
government works, attend meetings at the
local government and council levels, receive
professional development training and meet
many important persons in government. It
does not appear that many of them plan to
pursue careers in politics, but it is certain
that this experience has helped improve
their communication skills, interpersonal
skills and taught them how to handle oppo-
sition from their peers and adults.
It is hoped that they will be commended
for their efforts as they will be remembered
as the youth leaders who bore the blame
and took the blows during the trial period
of the Local Government Junior Council
on Abaco. Let us remember that they are
minors who took on the responsibility to
learn leadership skills in an adult world
where those doing the judging can some-
times be cruel.
Well done, junior councillors!

A message from BEC

The Bahamas Electricity Corporation
(BEC) has successfully resolved its elec-
tricity supply issues which affected Abaco
on June 18 and June 19, 2011.
The Corporation maintains that its
weekend challenges were not caused by a
lack of generation but rather a sequence
of unforeseen problems on its distribution
network. Residents of mainland Abaco
would have experienced several outages
on Saturday and again on Sunday after-
noon. A downed power line, minor equip-
ment failure at the Marsh Harbour Power
Station and a lightning strike to the elec-
tricity supply system were to blame for the
outages. In all instances, electricity supply
was restored within a short period of time.
Residents in Hope Town would have
experienced the brunt of the past week-
end's service interruptions. A damaged
cable (believed to have been caused by a
water craft) was responsible for the sup-
ply disruption on Saturday morning while
equipment failure at the Hope Town sub-
station was responsible for a second outage
late Saturday evening. As BEC officials
worked to restore supplies, the informa-
tion was communicated to Abaco residents
via the local television network- BCN. As

indicated in that release, electricity sup-
ply was fully restored to the Hope Town
community at 2 a.m. on Sunday morn-
With the issues of the past weekend re-
solved, the Corporation is already taking
steps to ensure that they are not repeated.
The Corporation is continuing with the
installation of necessary equipment to
minimize the possible effects of light-
ning on its electricity supply network.
This project is nearly halfway done and
is expected to be completed by the end of
July. Similarly, BEC is continuing with
plans to improve the electrical distribu-
tion system which supplies the Abaco
The Corporation apologizes to its
customers on Abaco, especially the resi-
dents of Hope Town, who would have
experienced outages over the weekend.
Nonetheless, BEC remains committed
to ensuring that residents in Abaco have
a superior supply of electricity. Already
considerable improvements have been
made to the generation and distribution
networks on the island and there are
plans for continued upgrades.

BEC Experiences Small Fire at

Hope Town Distribution Center

By Timothy Roberts
A small fire at the BEC distribution sta-
tion in Hope Town led to a series of power
interruptions in the Central Abaco area on
the afternoon of June 18 occurring due to a
fault on that station's control panel which
caused a circuit breaker to trip at the Marsh
Harbour Power Station.
BEC Assistant Manager in Charge of
Distribution, George Martin, indicated that
the circuit breaker trip happened around
three-o'clock in the afternoon and affected
Guana Cay, Man-O-War and Hope Town
as well as Murphy Town, Dundas Town
and Marsh Harbour.
At the time of the trip BEC had not yet
identified the fault; however, as they re-
stored power to each area one-by-one the
circuit breaker tripped again while they
tried to turn on power to Hope Town. This
tripped the breaker again.
Mr. Martin said it was about this time
that they received several reports of a fire
at their Hope Town sub-station. They im-
mediately dispatched Lloyd Russell to in-
vestigate the problem and discovered that
the switchboard had been damaged as a
result of a fire. The fire damaged all the
cables and wires that were attached to the
main board.
BEC sent more help and materials and
the workers built a temporary solution to
restore power to the area. Workers dili-
gently labored at it until after 2am when
they were able to finally turn all areas of
Hope Town back on.
Mr. Martin said they are thankful to
the Hope Town community and especially
Clay Wilhoyte, who stayed with the work-
ers to the very end. They also are thankful
to Lawrence Fenn who provided food and
water and whatever they needed.
The power outage on Sunday, June 19,
was the result of a lightning strike. Mr.
Martin said that BEC is presently adding

a lightning suppression system to their
transmission lines in order to prevent wide-
spread outages from lightning strikes. He
said progress is moving slowly as they are
adding it in small sections once a week as
they seek to inconvenience the customer as
little as possible.
He wanted to reassure the consumer that
the power outages were unplanned equip-
ment failures and had nothing to do with
BEC's ability to generate enough power.
He added that BEC remains committed to
providing stable power to Abaco.

Anglicans induct first Bahamian rector

Rev. Johnson will serve two South Abaco Anglican churches
By Samantha V. Evans
::...... ..... On June 24 Rev, Willish Johnson was
installed as Rector of St. John the Baptist
Anglican Church in Marsh Harbour in an
................ ............................................................ im pressive cerem ony. The R t. R ev. Laish
Boyd Sr., Bishop of the Diocese of The
Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands,
and other rectors officiated at the service.
This installation took place at a time when
the church is celebrating 150 years as a
diocese which is significant.
Rev. Johnson is originally from Nassau.
,.She was ordained a Deacon in 2002 and
, .has served in several churches. She was
I f appointed rector of St. John the Baptist
1 1 Parish last year becoming the first Baha-
�..mian rector in the Diocese of the Bahamas
and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The sermon at the installation service
was delivered by Bishop Boyd. He spoke
(AAabout the role that pastors, lay pastors,
priests and deacons have in the Anglican
j/, r 'church. He encouraged Rev. Johnson to
ti'/ remember several important things as she
officially takes on this new role. The first
thing is that ministry belongs to God, not
I' the Bishop. The second thing is that Jesus
is the foundation of the Christian Ministry.
Therefore the ministry should not be built

Twenty-eight graduate

from Forest Heights
By Samantha V. Evans
The largest graduating class of Forest
Heights Academy in this school's history,
28 seniors have now met all of the criteria
needed to officially graduate from Forest
Heights Academy. On June 15 at New Vi-
sion Ministries these students graduated
under the theme On the Brink of Greatness!
Principal James Richard took the stu-
dents back to seventh grade, a time when
they were little and he had long hair. Back
then he taught them math and that was
great. But when he became principal, he
saw them for different reasons such as dis-
cipline and rule enforcement. He spoke
of the fun and courage they have, both of
which made them the class of excellence
they have turned out to be. The potential
is great for them to succeed and fail. How-
ever, the choice is theirs to make. Hence
the decision to succeed is theirs.
The keynote address was delivered by
Simmone Mullings, who gave the graduates
some real life tips to take with them as they
leave the confines of Forest Heights Acad-
emy. She was impressed that 98 percent of
the graduates are going straight off to col-
lege which is wonderful. She stated that
they must be prepared to live by the choic-
es they make as they are now responsible
for the quality of life they will have. They
must realize that things will not always go
the way they expect. When this happens,
they must not give up but stay focused on
their dreams and find another way to suc-
ceed. Another life tip was to remember that
success is relative. They must not measure

their own success by what others say or
think. They must determine what success
means to them and make it a reality.
Ms. Mullings told them that true friends
add more value to their life as they get old-
er. True friends will be there when things
are good and when they are bad. They
must chose friends wisely. They must re-
main physically fit so that they do not be-
come overweight and unhealthy. Finally,
the last lesson for life was that everything
their parents told them will actually make
sense one day.
Mrs. Mullings spoke highly of the
group stating that they have high hopes
for their future which will be bright if
they stay on course.
Valedictorian Pamela Smith reminisced
about her time with her classmates and told
them that as they now prepare to take dif-
ferent paths that they must not settle for

mediocrity. They must do their best at all
times and let the challenges they will face
be stepping stones to greatness. The saluta-
torian for this class was Felicia Survance.
The students then received their diplo-
mas and were officially declared graduates
by principal James Richard.

Minister of Education

Spoke at Long Bay
By Samantha V. Evans
Thirteen students graduated from Long
Bay School on June 16 in a ceremony at the
school's auditorium. The graduates chose
their theme Achieving Success through
Christian Education and decorated the
room with their chosen colors of black, sil-
ver and purple.
The welcome was given by Dr. John
Carey, Education Director of the North-
ern Bahamas Conference of Seventh Day

Adventists, who stated that this school
stresses academics and character building.
He encouraged them to make a positive
contribution to the nation because the na-
tion needs them to contribute to its further
growth and development.
Remarks were brought by the MP for
South Abaco, Edison Key, who stated that
graduation is a time of joy and celebration.
He told the graduates that this is now the
time for them to take responsibility for their
own lives but he stated that they must not
rush life. This is their first journey so they
should seek direction from those who have
travelled this way already. He challenged
them to not only be responsible citizens of
the Bahamas but to become ambassadors.
Principal Jacqueline Collie gave an
emotional address as she taught many of

these students when began grade seven at
Long Bay. She told them that the diplo-
ma will prove that a solid foundation has
been laid upon which they can continue
to build. She told them to not be afraid
to take risks but soar to new heights-for
higher heights.
The keynote address was powerfully de-
livered by the Minister of Education, the
Hon. Desmond Bannister, who told them

that even though graduating is exciting,
they will find that the road ahead will get
more exciting as they take the next step in
life. He commended Odessa Cooper for
making history by completing the Techni-
cal Cadet Training Program with honors.
Minister Bannister stated that Abaco
youth are doing well in the district and na-
tionally which speaks highly of the quality
of education on the island. He noted that
this year $8 million has been put aside for
scholarships so money is there for those

students who do well. He advised them
not to write off technical education be-
cause it is essential today. This area is
now one that can be pursued as a career.
He told them the stories of Bill Gates of
Microsoft and the creation of Facebook.
These started out as ideas by persons who
dared to take a risk. Now they are bil-
The Salutatorian, Odessa Cooper, and
Valedictorian, Tirshata Etienne, gave
very eloquent speeches which spoke of the
morals and character building skills they
learned from the teachers and principal and
the bond they have with the school fam-
ily. They thanked the teachers and staff
for making their school years at Long Bay
School memorable. These two young la-
dies received their diploma with distinc-
tion. All of the students graduated with a
3.0 or higher. Long Bay School celebrated
the accomplishments of their graduates
well, letting them know that their hard
work was not in vain.

Wesley College holds
graduation ceremony
By Canishka Alexander
The Wesley College Valedictory Service
encompassed the theme of A More Excel-
lent Way as the staff and family members
celebrated the high school graduation of
Paige Archer.
Rev. Charles Carey, principal, outlined
the students' accomplishments particularly
their participation at the Friends of the En-
vironment Earth Day Science Fair and in
the National Arts Festival. He took pride in
inviting students from other schools to join
the Boys and Girls Brigade, which he holds
on the school grounds each Thursday.
Making remarks on behalf of the De-
partment of Education, Senior Education
Officer Leslie Rolle, assisted with the pre-
sentation of several awards and congratu-
lated the students on their quality work.
Paige Archer delivered her valedictorian
speech. She thanked her teachers for their
ongoing support as well as her parents and
her grandmother, Evelyn Archer, for be-
ing by her side.
Guest speaker Supt. Noel Curry encour-
aged the students to always do their best.
He named a number of people from Abaco
including the Prime Minister who have ac-
complished great things for their island.
"I believe in you," he said. "The ques-

tion is do you believe in you? As I said, our
country is depending on you. I want you to
enjoy this very moment because you are the
very best of the class this year."
As he finished his remarks, he called
Paige and the sixth grade graduate, Teran
Edgecombe,to receive a monetary gift that
had been collected from his colleagues. The
school band members played a collection of
upbeat musical selections for the audience.
Before giving the graduates their diplo-
mas, Rev. Carey prayed a blessing over
them. He then asked his wife to make a
special presentation to Viola Johnson, who
is one of the founding members of Dundas
Town. She received an honourary diploma
for her tireless work in the community.
ECC Graduation and
Awards Ceremony
By Mirella Santillo
One student, Cardena Laroda, gradu-
ated this year form Every Child Counts
in a ceremony that combined her gradu-
ation and awards ceremony. The event
took place at St Francis de Sales Church in
Marsh Harbour on June 17.
Cardena Laroda was acknowledged by
her teacher, Marsden Lawley, who praised
her determination and her skills in sewing
and quilting, by the school Director, Lyn
Major and by Karen McIntosh for whom
she worked at Abaco Ceramics. One of
Cardena's creations, a set of dishes that
she fired, decorated and varnished was
on display at the entrance of the church.
Her accomplishments at Abaco Ceramics
were rewarded by a benefactor who saw
her work and donated $5000 to the school.
Each teacher distributed Class Awards
to the students they felt were deserving

in a special field. The Platinum Awards
were handed to students who had reached
the top of their class and maintained that
level through the year. The Good Samari-
tan Award rewarded the students who were
always willing to help their classmates and
Mr. Lawley recognized Carlos Pinder
as Student of the Year for his class. In
Pamela Hepburn's class, that title went to
Alicia Adderley. The Special Appreciation
Award was given to Ashwell Murray and
DeAngela Murray by teacher David Cote.
Mrs. Major's recognition of students,
teachers and volunteers closed the cer-
emony. She announced that three students,
Ashwell Murray, Tyler Davis and DeAn-
gela Murray, were leaving for Greece

that same day to participate in the Special
Olympics. The three ECC students will
travel through Nassau and London on their
way to Athens where they will stay for
three weeks at the Olympic Village.

three years of hard study which paid off
for Sujith. Two hundred seventy-five spell-
ers from not only all 50 of the American
states but also from countries all around
the world gathered in Washington for this
prestigious event.
Sujith represented The Bahamas as he
was the winner of the National Spelling
Bee held in Nassau in March, but the sec-
ond place winner and two third place win-
ners also went to Washington to observe
the competition. The Bahamian contingent
included the Minister of Education, the
Hon. Desmond Bannister, two representa-
tives from the Ministry of Education who
are members of the Bahamas National
Spelling Bee Committee, Haldane Chase,
a professor at the College of The Bahamas
who has served as pronouncer for The Ba-
hamas Spelling Bee for the last two years,
and Sujith's parents, Drs. Shirin and Ben-
erji Swarna. Each participant was spon-
sored by a newspaper and Sujith was spon-
sored by The Nassau Guardian.
During the first day of competition the
spellers had to complete a written test of 25
words followed by rounds two and three of
oral competition. At the end of round three
a decision was made as to the number of
students who would be going on to the semi
final round and Sujith's score brought him
very close to being a semifinalist.
This was a great achievement for Sujith,
who was entering for the first time and was
up against many students who were enter-
ing for the second, third and fourth time.
Sujith is to be greatly congratulated for
placing 42nd out of a total of 275 spellers.
Although Sujith will not be able to enter
again next year, as he will be above the
age allowed, the two runners-up who are
younger will be eligible. Hopefully, their
experience of watching the Scripps Spell-
ing Bee will help them for next year.
Various social events were put on for

the spell-
ers, their
parents and
families be-

Smithsonian Museum and saw several fa-
mous landmarks.
Sujith said that he was both excited and
nervous about the competition and braced
himself against disappointment for when-
ever he might become eliminated. "The
best part of the whole experience was
meeting people and making new friends,"
said Sujith who intends to keep in touch
with all of his new friends through Face-
book. "I am very proud to have done my
best to represent The Bahamas," he added.

Goombay Festival draws
crowd at Sea Spray Resort
By Samantha V. Evans
The Goombay Summer Festival is very
much alive at Sea Spray Resort on Elbow
Cay and has been so for the last two years.
Thanks to the innovative, yet culturally fo-
cused efforts, of manager Junior Maynard,
residents and tourists alike have an oppor-
tunity to experience the culture of The Ba-
hamas through food, music and Junkanoo
every other weekend during the summer
months. According to Mr. Maynard, the
purpose for his starting this event is to em-
phasize Bahamian culture. He noted that
many of the guests who visit the island or
those who have winter homes there do not
experience The Bahamas as he believes
they should. So he brings the culture to
As a part of this effort, he brings in big
name Bahamian artists from Nassau and the
Southern Bahamas to entertain the crowd.
This year the festival began on May 12th
with the New Entry Band. On May 26th it
continued with Ancient Man and New En-
try Band. On June 9th KB rocked the house
with his hits and oldies. On June 23rd the
Andros legend Elyon Moxey was in atten-
dance and put on a stellar show. The show
was awesome! The Motown Rockers Junk-
anoo group from Murphy Town provided
a unique Junkanoo rush out that was worth
the wait. As the night went on, the band
provided a great mixture of music that de-

According to Junior, he gives the visi-
tors a taste of what being Bahamian is
about. His focus on the summer festival is
not so much on vendors but on the cuisine
and music of the Bahamas. Guests enjoy
the food from his resort and they have a
banquet set up for them to enjoy all night.
Also performing was limbo and fire dancer
Desmond Cartwright from the mainland.
Next year he hopes to bring the Police
Marching or Pop Band to Hope Town. His
plan is to see this event get to the point
where it is beneficial for the entire island
especially since those who have experienced
it so far have been extremely receptive. Ad-
ditionally, he would like to see persons plan
their vacations around this event.

The performers for the remainder of the
Goombay Summer Festival are Geno D,
a native Abaconian, on July 7 and T'rez
Hepburn, Ronnie Butler and the Spank
Band on July 21. The ferry leaves Marsh
Harbour ferry dock at 7 p.m. and leaves

Derek Lee Regatta was
held in Hope Town
A few years ago just as the Hope Town
Junior Sailing Program began, we found
an old trophy in the Clubhouse. The Derek
Lee Trophy had been awarded to Junior
Sailors in Hope Town since the 60s but had
fallen out of use and was in poor shape.
After a complete renovation, it has become

our sailing program's annual award for a
job well done.
Past winners in those earlier years in-
clude Harold Malone, Jack Russell, Wel-
lington Pinder, Michael Maltarp, Jeff
Gale, Buddy Malone and Bernard Major.
Since the beginning of the Hope Town
Junior Sailing in 2006 the trophy has been
won by Noah Albury, Shannon Thompson
and Tristan Albury. This year teams com-
peted for the award. The Sandy Toes Sail-
ors, represented by Lilly Higgs, William
Cash, Alexis Cook and Ryan Knowles, will

have their names engraved on the trophy
along with the best of the Junior Sailors.
The Regatta was organized a little dif-
ferently this year, using the team approach
which allowed all levels of sailing ability.
Two teams of four vied for the trophy
in several different areas of skill (and fun).
Sandy Toe Sailors with Lilly Higgs, Wil-
liam Cash, Alexis Cook, Ryan Knowles.
Flying Pineapples with Charlie Cash,
Joey Gale, Yvenski Alcime, Bessie Lowe.
According to Matt McCoy, "In the
morning we had a rigging contest, a sail-
ing and swimming relay and a tug-of-war.

two teams and two rounds only one granny
knot! The relay was really popular although
the swimming part was much harder than
everyone thought! Tug-of-war was really
fun, and we had a bonus round with two
dads joining the teams, Chris Higgs with
the Sandy Toes and Jeff Gail joining the
Flying Pineapples.
After lunch we had a beginner's race
between Ryan and Bessie; they each won
one round.
Then we had the advanced races, which
were tricky as we had light and shifty air.
The boys did great - Joey won ALL three.
Yvenski came in second twice.
At the end of the day the results of all
contests (weighted towards the sailing),
minor aspects of each contest (knots, dock-
ing), negative points for crashing and bo-
nus points for sportsmanship, the Flying
Pineapples won with 1547 points, and the
Sandy Toe Sailors came second with 1432.
Other special awards
MVP Award: Joey Gale for winning all
three races.
Sportsmanship Award: Lilly Higgs was
cool, helpful and excited all day, and kept
on racing through many wind shifts.
Spirit Award: Bessie Lowe for going
from not sailing at all last year to sailing
by herself this year - a big improvement!
After the Regatta, awards and certifi-
cates were presented at the Clubhouse, ac-
companied by pizza.
Many thanks go to all the parents who
helped and acted as the Pep Squad and es-
pecially to Matt McCoy and Ron Engle.

Charles Maynard
visits Baker's Bay
By Mirella Santillo
The Hon. Charles Maynard, Minister of
Youth, Sports and Culture, was on Abaco
on June 25 and visited Baker's Bay Golf
and Ocean Club that turned out to be a
very relaxing and enlightening experience
for the Minister.who had not had a chance
to visit the resort.
Dr. Livingston Marshall, Vice Presi-
dent of Environmental Affairs for Baker's
Bay, took Mr. Maynard and his group on
a tour of the resort that included villas,
beaches, construction sites and restaurants
with Dr. Marshall giving him information.
The group enjoyed the first class decor of
the villas, the sight of the beautiful beach-
es, the native landscaping and the ameni-
ties offered by the restaurant serving the

golf course area. The highlight of the tour
was the manicured 18-hole golf course with
its paspalum turf that was as smooth as a
carpet. An even more breathtaking surprise
awaited the group when they reached hole
13. There the visitors were invited to ob-
serve the most amazing 360-degree view of
the island and seashore.
The tour included a visit to the Comfort
Stop where an array of snacks and drinks
are stored for hungry or thirsty golfers.
The group then partook of a tasty lunch at
the Market Place.
Mr. Maynard was truly impressed with
the present condition and the future goals
of the resort, the friendliness of the em-
ployees and the overall service extended to
them, which seems to be the common fare

They believe that they are the only ones
that can run the ministry. Next he stated
that the ministry of one person is a part of
a larger whole. Every function in church is
important for it to run effectively. There-
fore, everyone needs to work together and
not segregate self from the whole. Finally,
the gifts we have are subject to the greatest
gift of all - love. Their work must show

love or all efforts will be in vain.
Rev. Boyd encouraged the parish to
support them as she is a fine priest with
a supportive husband. They need support
and love. He is thankful that she responded
to the call on her life and is faithfully using
her gift for the honor and glory of God.
The installation would have been last
year but due to a lot of activities at the
church, it took place this year. This instal-
lation makes her post official. As a part of
the service she was presented with the holy
items and prayed for. The service followed
the order of a regular service with greet-
ing, communion and offering.

Abaco Youth Ministries
holds seminar for pastors
By Samantha V. Evans
Pastor Emmit Archer of Abaco Youth
Ministries hosted a one-day workshop for
pastors all over Abaco to fellowship, to
learn more about how to become minis-
ters of integrity and to work together as a
group to help achieve their goals for their
churches and communities. The present-
ers for this event were
Pastor Valentino Wil-
liams of Life Chang-
ing Ministries in New
Providence and Bishop
Terrence Strachan of
Life Gate Ministries in
Pastor Williams
centered his presenta-
tion around the subject
of integrity, namely in
four areas. Firstly, the
pastors as overseers Pastor Emmit A
of their church must to encourage th
keep their word and do shown with the
as they promise. They liams and Bishol

should have integrity in their marriage as
well. His own marriage should be beyond
reproach, and he should conduct himself
correctly when dealing with the female
members of his church. Thirdly, pastors
should have integrity in their leadership
and treat all wrongdoers equally, regard-
less of their position or financial contri-
butions to the church. Finally, they must
have integrity in preaching and use their
own messages as opposed to those bor-
rowed from another pastor rather than seek
a word from God. His presentation was re-
ceived very well by the other pastors who
felt encouraged and charged.
Pastor Strachan emphasized this mes-
sage as he continued the workshop by ad-
monishing the pastors to live the word they
preach. People, he explained, are looking
for men of God who are holy and righ-

teous. It is therefore important that pastors
have integrity as people come into church
in need of a word to help them through
their times of difficulty.
The workshop emphasized the connec-
tion with the other pastors in the commu-
nity. All pastors and their churches will
become stronger if pastors "stop playing
church" and put petty differences aside.
Pastors should work together, putting God
and integrity first. Optimizing the alliance
that has been formed among pastors on
Abaco will enable each pastor to operate
to their fullest potential and better service
their congregation.
Rachael Mackey speaks
at Women Conference
By Samantha V. Evans
Sister Rachael Mackey, as she is affec-
tionately called, was the guest preacher at
the Dundas Town Church of God Ladies
Conference with the theme You May Be in a
Storm but Don't Let the Storm Get in You.
President of the Women's Ministry of
the Church of God Dundas Town, Barbara
Thurston, stated that this is her first con-
ference as president, and she knows that
it was God ordained. She felt that many
women who attended were going through
rough times and need encouragement.
Another presenter, Sister Luna Camp-
bell, stated that with the changes and cha-
os in the world and the recession, people
needed reminding that God is still with
them even now. She stated that these are
all types of storms that people experience.
Many marriages are in trouble, parents are
struggling with their children and young
men are on the streets being non-produc-
tive. Sister Mackey gave them hope and

encouragement to make it through their
tough times.
Sister Mackey stated that even though
she has been preaching the gospel for 62
years, she herself was encouraged by the
topic and the opportunity to speak to the
women of Abaco.
She spoke about various types and cate-
gories of storms and what to do to survive a
storm. She told the ladies that even though
they usually feel alone during a storm they
are not. This is the time when they need
to stay connected to God more than ever.
Sis. Mackey stated that based on the strate-
gies she shared that all women (and men)
now knew what to do to make it through
one of life's storms. She wants everyone to
remember that a storm is an indication that
something big is on the other side of the
storm. This experience was most reward-
ing for her. Sister Mackey is one of the
national evangelists for the Church of God
First Assembly of God
Pastoral Anniversary
By Samantha V. Evans
It has been three years since Pastor
Deion and his wife Anette Gibson began
serving at First Assembly of God in Marsh
Harbour. It was quite clear that this man of
God is loved by not only his church fam-
ily but others in the community. The third
annual Pastoral Anniversary service was
held for the beloved couple at their church.
Present for this service were pastors from
the north, south and central districts. The
Hon. Fred Mitchell, MP for Fox Hill, was
also present for this anniversary service.
The message of encouragement for the
event was delivered by Pastor Stephen
Knowles, Senior Pastor of Strong Tower
Ministries and President of the Abaco

Christian Council. He described Pastor
Deion as a servant of God.
The topic Pastor Knowles chose to
speak on was Working for God's Approval.
This dynamic message was encouraging to
Pastor Deion and the entire congregation.
He spoke on four areas. Firstly, he encour-
aged pastor Deion to continue to be a good
steward over what God has already placed
in his care. Secondly, he reminded Pastor
Deion that he has a word to proclaim and to
use the gospel to change people and trans-
form their lives. He encouraged all pastors
to preach the word without fear or favor.
Next, he reminded pastors to put their
own house in order and set high standards
for their church to follow at all times. They

must be careful when new members come
to their church and practice asking why
they left the previous church before accept-
ing them as members. He stated that if they
have discord in the church they left, he
must send them back to make things right
before they join this new ministry. Pastor
Knowles calls for pastors to be account-
able, take a stand and deal with issues re-
gardless of a member's status in the church
or community. Finally, he told Pastor Dei-
on that he has a crown to receive. After all
the hard work has been done, he explained,
that better days are coming when God will

Christian Group aids
primary school athlete
By Samantha V. Evans
A group of Christian women from
Abaco came together to help make the
lives of unfortunate kids on our island
better. Previously this group has made
significant donations to assist the Red
Cross with their work. A few months
ago, this group reached out to Central
Abaco Primary School to help some chil-
dren in need.
One of the young boys who received
assistance was James Deliah, who is cur-
rently in grade two. James was orphaned
but lives with his uncle and aunt who do
their best to raise him despite tough cir-
cumstances. James, a very good athlete,
first attracted the attention of this group
at the school sports meet held last Febru-
The group asked the school Guidance
Counselor about James who told them that
there were several other children in great
need. For James, the group purchased new
tennis and clothing. Then they assisted
with his travel expenses to Nassau so he
could take part in the National Primary
School Track and Field Meet. James and
Head Coach Jeffrey Victor were most ap-
preciative for the assistance and James as-
sured them that he would bring back home
a medal.

Fun Day at Friendship
Tabernacle Church
By Samantha V. Evans
The youth department of Friendship
Tabernacle Church held a Fun Day for
the young and young at heart on Labour
Day, June 2, 2011. The day was intended
to bring the church family together and
open the doors for those who were look-
ing to find a church home. The event was
organized by Rose Thompson and the other
members of the youth department. There
were fun games such as the Snicker eating
competition, three-legged race, scavenger
hunt, basketball and volleyball games and
the bouncing castle.
The church has a youth meeting every
Friday evening. The program appeals to
youth to engage in uplifting activities on
Friday nights that can help to groom them
into young men and women of distinction.
The youth leaders realize that the teens
have many other options for fun but hope
that they will consider attending a youth
meeting at the church in Central Pines.
Kingdom Fellowship
By Samantha V. Evans
On May 29 Friendship Tabernacle
Church was overflowing with worshipers
as the event they all look forward to, King-
dom Fellowship, was held. There were
three sermons.
The first speaker was Bishop Anthony
Campbell, who spoke on Fresh Fire. He
said that people must have clean hearts and
need to have a connection with God for this
is very important. If people would have a
Fresh Fire, hatred and malice would not be
in many people's hearts.

The second sermon was delivered by
Bishop Tyrone Mills, who gave a message
about being bold and looking the devil in
the face and giving him a strong fight. He
stated that more people need to learn that
you must not only praise God when things
are good but at all times. Today the church
has changed as many messages are about
feelings and things.
Pastor Alex Archer gave the last ser-
mon that was based on being unashamed
about praising. He stated that it is about
time that the Kingdom gets the help from
Many choirs, dance groups and praise
teams performed including Latter Rain
dance team, choir and praise team per-
formed, along with Soul Saving Ministries
and Friendship Tabernacle praise teams.
The service was dynamic and uplifting.
Abaco Youth Ministries
helps the needy
By Samantha V. Evans
Abaco Youth Ministries has a passion
for community building and has commit-
ted themselves to helping those less for-
tunate than they are. For many years the
church family has spearheaded the initia-
tive where they collect items of clothing,
food, household goods and the like to give
to those in need. According to Beverly Ar-
cher, they have this give-away initiative
once a quarter.
Besides members of the church donat-
ing items they have to this cause, mem-
bers of the community that support them
also bring items to give away. Archer
stated that over the years they have given
away televisions and DVD players as well.
Whatever is donated is what they give
away to the community.
On June 11 members of the church set
up tables on the outside of the church on
Forrest Drive as dozens of people from
all over Abaco came to benefit from this
program. Persons from the far north even
came down to collect items. Mrs. Archer
stated that the needs they are seeing now
are far more than those they have had to
meet over the years. She could recall when
they started this program on the church
grounds long before they had a church

building. They also give away uniforms,
folders, books, folder sheets and other
school items.
Mrs. Archer noted that there is a grow-
ing need for professional clothing as well,
and she is thankful that people have been
stepping up to the plate and donating those
needed items. Persons drop off items year
round to aid them in this effort. She is thank-
ful that they are able to be a blessing to the
community especially during this time when
people from all walks of life are hurting.

lier that day.
Guest speakers included Joan Baillou,

to dress. Stacy Adderley spoke to the girls
about etiquette. There were games played
that involved a Hat Decorating Competition
and a Fashion Show. Awards were given to
the girls with the best hats. Special thanks

It seems this lowly pineapple went crazy.

Malcolm Spicer.
This trip will cost each of the players ap-
proximately $3,000 for travel and expens-
es, and we need to do all we can to help
them to raise these funds as they will be
representing us. We cannot hope to raise
the needed funds all at one time, but will
have several small functions to give the
community a chance to meet the players
and maybe even have a game of darts with
them so they can show off their skills.
Therefore, we in Cherokee are going to
start the ball rolling by having a Fun Day
and Dinner for the team and encourage our
fellow Abaconians to come out and sup-

port them on July 16 starting at 11 a.m.
at the W.W. Sands Community Center in
Cherokee Sound.
There will be lots of games and compe-
titions, just for fun, plus a Bouncy Castle
to keep the little ones occupied while the
grown-ups compete at darts, dominoes and
volleyball. We are offering chicken, fish
or pork chop dinners for $12 with peas
n'rice, corn and macaroni n'cheese, plus
a sweets table to feed your sweet tooth at
reasonable rates.
We still do not know the final figure
raised on Cherokee Day because of out-
standing expenses, which should be final-
ized soon and we will announce it to the
public at that time. However, this will
be more of a Fun Day, and we hope you
will come out to join us. I just have a feel-
ing these talented dart players will do us
proud, and I know you will want to help
them along the way.

On June 14 the Soup Kitchen provided
pumpkin soup for 30 senior citizens and

soup, continuing through the hot months.
So far, the seniors are always happy to
welcome the ladies at their door.

A real crowd of kids and mothers came
out to The Long Dock for the summer-

he started his swimming lessons won seven
Olympic Swimmers visit
Abaco Swim Club
By Timothy Roberts
The swimmers of Abaco Swim Club had
a special treat as they were visited by two
outstanding swimmers and their coach who
gave the swimmers pointers and shared
their experience with them on June 16 at
the Long Bay School swimming pool.
Grand Bahama native, Alana Dilette
along with Bryan Lundquist of Georgia
and their coach Lionel Moreau from Au-
burn University, visited with the young
swimmers sharing their experience just
days before they left for the Bahamas Na-
tional Swim Meet.
Alana said, "I came down to swim in the
Nationals, but I wanted Lionel and Bryan
to get a taste of the islands. So everything
worked out, and we were able to come to
Marsh Harbour and share with the Abaco
Swim Club and have a little vacation, too."
The children were enthusiastic at the op-
portunity to learn new techniques to im-
prove their swimming as Coach Lionel put
them through a series of exercise to help

them with Alana and Bryan illustrating the
coach's teachings.
"I think it's good for the children and
for me to come to a smaller club and to
share our experiences with the small kids
like that," Coach Moreau said. "To share
the experiences of some top athletes and let
them see that they are real people, and they
do what everybody else does."
They were impressed with the club and
said it is amazing what a swimmer can
achieve when they have the right people
around them. The coaches have the swim
club headed in the right direction.
Alana won 10 gold medals at CARIFTA
2005, won a few medals at CAC (Central
America Caribbean) and represented the
Bahamas at the Olympics. Bryan was part
of the team that set the world record in the
Short Course 400 Free Relay in the Short
Course World Championships in 2008 and
set the American record in 100 Fly in 2009.
The children of the Abaco Swim Club
were very grateful that Alana, Bryan and
Coach Moreau visited and learned a lot in
their short time with them.

"Through the encouragement of the
Bahamas Agricultural Industrial Cor-
poration (BAIC), an investor has been
brought into Abaco who has established
a sawmill in South Abaco," stated
Mr. Edison Key, Executive Chairman
of BAIC and Member of Parliament
for South Abaco. Mr. Rob Roman has
leased property south of Spring City for
the establishment of his portable, mod-
ern sawmill and is already manufactur-
ing lumber which Mr. Key describes to
be of beautiful quality.
According to Mr. Key, government
has agreed that Mr. Roman can harvest
mature pine from several thousand acres
on Abaco. He is working within a for-
estry project through the Ministry of the
Environment and the Bahamas National
Trust which will protect the Abaco pine

forest from deforestation.
Mr. Roman is already making beauti-
ful flooring and ceiling lumber, tongue
and groove paneling and moldings. He
plans to start making doors and windows.
"This should create some employment,"
stated Mr. Key.
The sawmill is located in an industrial
park which has been established by BAIC
and is located south of Spring City just off
the Capt. Earnest Dean Highway. "There
are quite a few two-acre plots available
for people to set up businesses and fac-
tories in this industrial park. These plots
are ideal for small manufacturing busi-
nesses and several people have already
applied," informed Mr. Key. "Interested
persons may contact BAIC to apply, but
the land must be used, it cannot be leased
to hold, " he stated.

mittee are busy organizing and extending will be housed at various hotels in Marsh

"This undertaking will also require extra
staff," stated Pastor Symonette. "We have
a band of volunteer staff, but extra help
will have to brought in to cope with pro-
viding breakfast and dinner for these large
numbers. Normally for summer camps we
have 15 staff persons but for this event 15

the cooking, serving and cleaning." Extra
laundry facilities have also been provided.
"Although each camper will pay $25 per
day, with the cost of fuel and food prices
being up things will be tight," stated Pas-
tor Symonette. The camp bus will be used
for transportation and a second back-up
bus is coming which has been donated by a
church in Florida.
On the day of arrival at Camp Abaco,
players and coaches will be greeted by a wel-
come reception with a Junkanoo Rush Out.

The timing of the Little League Tour-

School From Page 8

Seven receive diplomas
in Central Abaco
The Central Abaco ceremony tool place
at Church of God in Dundas Town, under
the theme Stepping Forward into Destiny.
In a welcome address, Valedictorian Shani-
qua Archer, talked about the life challeng-
es that prevented her from getting a high
school diploma. But her philosophy is that
people should not hang on to the past, but
step forward into their destiny and she has.
The guest speaker, Pastor Silbert Mills,
encouraged the graduates to go forward
and to keep their eyes on their destiny
in spite of unexpected events that might
change their plans.
Two other students reached the top of
their class, Salutatorian Bronson Roberts
and in third place Leah Bethel. The three
instructors were Joyce Champainge, Kevin
Hepburn and Raquel Cox.
The President and CEO of the Scholas-
tic Institute, Mr Kendris Hield expressed
his pride and jubilation at seeing more stu-
dents graduating from the Scholastic Insti-
tute. He urged them not to stop at a high
school diploma but to pursue higher levels
of education, now available on Abaco.
The Scholastic Institute in conjunction
with the Terreve College in Grand Baha-
ma is now offering Associate degrees in a
variety of subjects and Bachelor's Degree
courses as well as certificate courses.

Sports From Page 25

though there were some new players,
Coach George Mills, a teacher at Central
Abaco Primary, said that most of the play-
ers had been to the Nationals the year be-
"We took three teams last year, and two
of our teams were able to get wins," Coach
Mills said. "We think that we should do
much better this time because the players
are more experienced."
While at the Nationals, they were ex-
pecting to play against teams from New
Providence, Grand Bahama, Bimini and
Eleuthera. Although they would not play
against all the teams, they would play at
least one team from each island represent-
He thanked all of their corporate spon-
sors for their continuous support and in-
vited others to join in supporting them. He
commended the committee members for
their hard work particularly the committee
secretary, Charmica Curry and her hus-
band Elvis. Coach Mills invited interested
persons to join the committee so that they
can better organize the league and get more
children involved.
