Junkanoo Summer Festsival entertained hundreds

Bahamian culture was highlighted in music, dance, crafts and food
By Samantha V. Evans
Once again the Ministry of Tourism
prepared an evening filled with fun for
Abaconians and visitors alike as all came
out in droves for the opening night of the
Junkanoo Summer Festival on June 18th.
The theme for this year is A Fun Time of
Celebration on Abaco as penned by sev-
Sr enth grade S.C. Bootle student Emmanuel
Munroe, who was presented with a $200
check by Tourism's Wynsome Ferguson
and Kendy Anderson.
4 Emmanuel stated that he came up with
this theme because when he thinks of the
festival, he thinks of having a fun time
-4. while experiencing Bahamian culture in
numerous ways. Besides that, he sees the
smiles this festival brings to the faces of all
who attend. He is especially thankful to his
aunt Shakera Taylor who helped to bring
his theme to life.
According to Tourism's Dornell Swain,
they had approximately 15 entrees with
the majority of them coming from Coo-
per's Town. The winning theme was se-
lected based on its ability to depict Baha-
The first Junkanno Summer Festival for 2010 was held at Goombay Park on June 18. This annual series of cultural events is orga- mian culture in a way that best represents

Other festivals will be held later in June, July and August.

through such a competition. The festival
was declared officially open by Wynsome
When the festivities got on the way, the
night just kept getting better and better.
The music provided by local entertainers
such as Brown Tip and Gary McDonald
got the crowd moving and grooving. For
those who needed a little more time to get
in the party mood, they could feast on food
provided by the many booths available in-
cluding that of the conch salad man. Some
of the cuisine consisted of baked lobster,
stuffed crab, fried snappers and chicken,
peas n' rice, macaroni and the works.
There was no shortage of food at this fes-
tival. For those who wanted something
sweet to drink, Liquid Ice did not disap-

point nor did the bar that served drinks for
the more mature in the crowd. Persons in-
terested in purchasing Bahamian handicraft
or in getting their hair braided could do
so at the booth manned by Nadine Rolle.
For the kids, they could enjoy the bounc-
ing castle or light up toys from the Flashers
As the night went on, guest perform-
ers hit the stage one by one and brought
down the house every time. For the past
three years Metelleus and Fontella Chip-
man were crowd pleasers. Montella did
his rendition of the Obeah Man backed by
Live Sounds Production followed by Fon-
tella, who wowed the crowd with her fire
dance routine. She then selected four per-

BEC says End of Year for

opening of new power station

The Bahamas Electricity Corporation
apologizes to its consumers in Abaco for
the interruptions they have been experi-
encing to their electricity supply. While
at present there is sufficient generation to
meet the demand, these interruptions are
a problem Abaco is all too familiar with
and one that BEC is actively working to
Residents would be aware that the
power station in Marsh Harbour is in
need of replacement as the age and type
of both generators and switchgear are no
longer suited to the needs of the island
today. Much of the equipment at the sta-
tion is reaching the end of its useful life.
This means frequent break-downs, high
maintenance costs, and difficulty in lo-
cating spare parts.
The failure of a major piece of electri-
cal equipment and resulting fire at Marsh
Harbour Power Station on 20 November
2009 compounded the problem by reduc-
ing the ability of the power station to
distribute power to its consumers. Staff
has been working very hard to maintain
the systems in order to secure the supply
of electricity. And, in light of the situ-
ation additional manpower and financial
resources have been applied to the situ-
Compounding the problems this time
of year are the frequent lightning storms

resulting in strikes on the power lines.
Although BEC has put in place systems
to mitigate against these strikes the de-
structive nature results in heavy stresses
on the system.
There is an obvious need to upgrade
the electrical power infrastructure in Ab-
aco and improve the reliability of supply.
This was recognized by the Corporation
several years ago and focus from that
time was to provide the island with a new
state of the art power plant. Major work
started on Wilson City Power Station in
2009. It was expected the station would
be operational by now.
However, delays and adjustments to
the project arising from litigation chal-
lenges and other considerations have
moved the power station's operation
closer to the end of the year.
In the interim, the Corporation's man-
agement and staff are working assidu-
ously to improve plant reliability at the
existing Marsh Harbour power station.
The Corporation is committed to the
people and economy of Abaco. Despite
the present challenges the Corporation is
confident that through diligent applica-
tion of its resources both short and long
term improvements will be realized. We
ask for the patience of the public while
we go through this period of growth and
look forward to the better days ahead.

Obeah Man, Matelleus, related to the audience well. He and the Fire Dancer worked as
a team to entertain the crowd.

Police reminder to motorists: Slow down and live.
Obey the speed limits. The life you save may be your own.

The evidence is anecdotal, but Abaco
seems to be weathering present economic
conditions reasonably well. Hope Town,
one of our indicators, is full of visitors.
Our summer season is off to a good start.
Unfortunately, the dark cloud hanging
over our heads this summer is Bahamas
Electricity Corporation's inability to keep
up with our electrical demand. Summer
gives BEC its peak load demands, and its
performance this past month has been dis-
Except for acknowledging that it has
problems due to the age of the generators
and lightning strikes, BEC officials have
said little about their problems. Its prog-
ress to restore generating sets to operation-
al status is compounded by the dire finan-
cial straights of corporate BEC.
The previous government reduced the
electric rate several years ago. Present
management claims that this lowered rate
began the corporation's financial downfall.
The company has asked for a 5 percent
rate increase which, with other cost-saving
measures, they claim would restore its fi-
nancial well being.
Abaco is not alone in having poor elec-
tric service as Nassau is experiencing load
shedding daily due to insufficient capacity.
Newspapers report that three of its four
major generators are under repair just as
the summer peak load occurs.
Businesses pay BEC a monthly demand
fee on top of the actual power they use.
This is a premium (or penalty depending
on your viewpoint) charged businesses by
the power company for the requirement
that BEC must be prepared to provide
the maximum power needed even though
it may be required to do so infrequently.
It is ironic that BEC collects this fee even
though they cannot presently meet the de-
The demand expense hits businesses
twice: the first as billed each month by
BEC for their ability (or inability) to sup-
ply electricity as required and a second ex-
pense for a standby generator to conduct
their business. These costs can be signifi-
cant. The new supermarket, which should
open in a month or two, has installed two

1 ., I k ( C jy *-
800 Kw generators to take care of power
outages. This is a substantial expense, in
the neighborhood of half a million dollars,
that must be amortized through the sale of
groceries. Ultimately, we consumers pay
for those generators.
BEC management has said recently that
much of its machinery is reaching the end
of its useful or economic life. We find this
hard to accept as these are heavy duty, in-
dustrial machines that can be rebuilt and
refurbished many times before they are
sold for scrap metal. In all likelihood,
when the new plant comes online, they will
be reconditioned and sent to other islands
to augment existing capacity or to replace
smaller units.
The fire at the BEC plant in November
destroyed a control panel and switch gear
controlling three generators. The fire did
not damage the generators, but the control
panel has not been replaced which is keep-
ing these three generators out of service.
One of these generators, a 2.5 Mw Elec-
tro-Motive Diesel, may have been out of
service at the time of the November fire.
Without a control panel, there is no incen-
tive to restore it to service.
At the time of the November fire, the
plant had 13 generators of which eight
were believed to be operational and con-
nected to the system. Two more are op-
erational, but the loss of the control panel
prevents them from being used.
Information on the street alludes to one
or more rental generators possibly on the
way. Other information suggests that one
or more of the existing generators may be

Homeowner fed up,
may leave
Dear Editor,
Wanted to let you know that my husband
and I have been coming to the Bahamas for
over 30 years.
In the earlier years when the power went
out it was not a big deal. Today, in 2010
it is not acceptable. We have tried and so
have other second homeowners. But we
might as well be back in 1966.
Please notice how many Americans have
their homes for sale. This is not because
of the economic hard times in the US. It
is because we are over this and you have
made no progress.
We have traveled all over the world,
Bora Bora, BVI, Europe and have never
had the problems we encounter every week
here. I could give you times and dates but
you have them.
When you are here by yourselves and we
have boarded up our homes, which means no
food being bought, no gas being purchased
and no dining out, you might get the message.

BEC affects us all

soon restored to service.
It is easy to speculate that BEC's man-
agement decided to withhold funding to
restore the existing plant to its installed ca-
pacity. Replacing the burned control panel
might have been completed in February or
March had an effort been made. At that
time, the new Wilson City plant was ex-
pected to be online in April or May. It was
probably correctly decided that spending
time and money for one or two months of
service was not justified.
However, the completion date for the
Wilson City plant keeps advancing July,
September and more recently to the end of
the year according to a recent press release
by BEC.
BEC management in Nassau has recently
been issuing press releases on the Nassau
situation with occasional references to Ab-
aco's problems. More specifically, most of
the problems BEC has alluded to relate to
the new plant, not the one that is trying to
keep us in power. They apologize for the
predicament they are in. The environmen-
talists are blamed for successfully chang-
ing the required fuel, causing installation
delays. The obstructionists and resulting
court delays are mentioned. BEC's staff is
praised for working under adverse condi-
tions caused by limited finances and a lack
of replacement parts. All of this is given
by BEC in generalizations without any
meaningful clue when the situation might
improve. The statements say only that we
might see the new plant in operation by the
end of the year.

Recent court documents uncovered by
the Nassau Tribune indicate that the cor-
poration now plans to truck fuel to the
Wilson City plant. This change in fuel de-
livery avoids any litigation on the docking
issue and is expected to result in a huge
savings initially by eliminating the marine
docking facility and the associated pipe-
line. This is a lame excuse considering
that the plant was situated to take advan-
tage of tanker deliveries.
Depending on who gets the fuel deliv-
ery contract, there could be three or four
fuel tankers on the highway every daylight
hour just to meet the plants' daily require-
ments of 20,000 gallons or more.
It does not look like BEC did all of its
So does the BEC situation impact Ab-
aco's prosperity? Visitors are angry and
are leaving earlier than intended, often
asking for a refund. House rental guests
are now asking if the house has a genera-
tor. Some homeowners have had enough
and are putting their property up for sale.
Abaco's name as a desirable visitor desti-
nation is being seriously tarnished.
From the start of construction on the
new power station, BEC has been close-
mouthed on its progress and the problems
in the existing plant. However, it should
have been obvious to BEC of the public's
interest and concern in BEC's operations
when over 800 persons attended its first
meeting on the new plant last September.
As a public corporation, BEC should do
a much better job of keeping us informed.

You can't expect us all to work hard and
put up with what it takes to make a dollar
and then come over here with raw nerves
and put up with this.
It is no laughing matter anymore. Most
second homeowners have their homes paid
for so we are in a position to close up and
come back or not.
I hate to be bitter because we have had a
lot of fun and made a lot of great friends.
We have even had a wedding for one of
our friends here. They are Bahamians. But
there has been enough time to make some
kind of progress.
Please tell me what this country will sur-
vive on when guests can't catch grouper
or get a conch or two and stay in the dark
without air conditioning, phones, Internet?
Again, we love it here but you have got
to improve your basic needs in order to
grow and prosper.
The Bahamas are the prettiest water and
are sitting on a gold mine and can't see it.
So the best of luck to you. We will all be
out of here ASAP.
Love ya but can't do it anymore.

Visitors see
unsociable attitude
Dear Editor,
My stepfather and I recently had the
pleasure of meeting a young tourist couple
from Florida on their first time visiting

Marsh Harbour. And our short encounter
with them was very uplifting for the most
part. They told us of how beautiful it is
here and were real happy to be here on
vacation. They were delighted that we and
other people here had heard of the small
city that they are from in Florida, which
I explained to them that we grew up here
watching television stations that broadcast
from South Florida.
We then chatted a little more on some
other subjects. After awhile they told us
that we were very nice and friendly with
them and went on to say that for the most
part the people that they encountered here
had not been very sociable with them.
This upset me. When I was growing
up here, I was taught to be polite and
very friendly with the tourists because
they are one of our greatest resources of
income here.
Maybe the now generation has not real-
ized this or been taught this. But remember
that even if your job or your family's or
friends' jobs might not be directly con-
nected to tourists, there are other people
who live here that do. If they don't earn
a good income, how will they be able to
spend money where you work or your
family or friends work. It's like that fa-
mous Bahamian saying "What goes around
comes around."
Please don't kill our bread and butter. Just
a smile for the tourists will go a long way.

The Ministry of Housing signed 14 con-
tracts on June 10 with local contractors
to build 35 new homes in Spring City as
Phase II of the government's housing proj-
ect begins.
Lorraine Armbrister, Acting Permanent
Secretary of the Ministry of Housing, at-
tended in place of Housing Minister Ken-
neth Russell. She said she was glad to be
a part of this "happy occasion" where
cheques were being given to each contrac-
tor for "immediate mobilization."
Seventy-five houses are completed in
Phase I and are now occupied. Phase II
includes the building of 165 new homes.
However, they will begin with only 35 as
these lots already have infrastructure in
place and will be ready to go with no ad-
ditional work needed.
The project, which is expected to cost
a total of $5.8 million (not including in-
frastructure work) will produce three types
of house ranging in price from $69,928
to $92,307 and will be constructed using
The houses are made available to first
time property owners with preference
given to persons of greater need, such as
single mothers. Ms. Armbrister said they
have already received "very many appli-
cations" for the houses and said they ex-
pect them to be completed in three months
with the mortgages being finalized at the
same time.

Each of the 14 contractors received a
check for 10 percent of their contracted
amount so that they can start immediately.
Many of the contractors said they were
grateful for the contract, especially with
the economic slowdown which has hit the
construction sector particularly hard, and
for the sake of so many people who are
looking for work.
The Spring City area was originally
granted to Owens Illinois of the Bahamas
Ltd. on September 20, 1963, by a Grant
from the Queen, which included 100.06
acres of land. On October 29, 1991, a total
of 56 lots comprising 11.8 acres was con-
veyed from the Treasury of The Bahamas
to the Minister responsible for Housing
and National Insurance. The land transfer
included Lots 1 to 41 and Lots 42 to 56 of
the area known as Old Spring City.
The Treasury conveyed the remainder
of the 100.06-acre tract to the Minister
responsible for Housing on September 1,
2008. This Conveyance was prepared after
the Resolution was approved by Parliament
and included 88.261 acres.
"The Spring City model is one that has
created much enthusiasm," Ms. Armbris-
ter said, "and has brought added value to
the subdivision of Spring City."
"The demand for housing on Abaco con-
tinues to be high," she continued. "We antic-
ipate completing Phase II of the Spring City
housing programme which will result in the
construction of the remaining 165 houses."

Kiwanis Club is
promoting road safety
By Timothy Roberts
The Kiwanis Club of Abaco held a
meeting on June 10 with various govern-
ment department heads and local govern-
ment representatives seeking to form a
partnership to implement school zones and
improve road safety.
William Davis, Kiwanis Club Presi-
dent, said the project is concerned with

road safety especially in areas where there
are schools. He expressed concern over
the speed he has seen cars driving along
the two main stretches of road where the
majority of Central Abaco's schools are
located, Forest Drive and Don MacKay
Mr. Davis sought to get things going
in December last year, however, quickly
discovered the process of creating a new
school zone is very complicated. He then
spoke with ASP Bruce Arnett in order to
form a partnership to get this underway.
David Knowles, Vice President of Ki-
wanis Club, said the purpose of the school
zones would be to set regulations in place
that would require vehicles to slow down

Abaco, Bahamas


The Kiwanis Club of Abaco is taking the initiative in road safety in areas where schools
are located. The club officers met with department heads and local government to plan
their strategy. Seated are William Davis, Kiwanis' President; Belinda McIntosh with
Road Traffic; and Administrator Whelma Colebrook. Standing are Administrator Cephas
Cooper, David Knowles, Kiwanis' Vice President; Police officer Sgt. Metelus; Roscoe
Thompson III, Marsh Harbour's Town Committee Chairman; Chief Councillor Cubell
Davis; and John Schaeffer with Works.

Central Abaco Administrator Cephas
Cooper said that creating a school zone is a
complex issue which involves the Ministry
of Works inspecting each area to be desig-
nated and the local Town Planning Board
reviewing and approving any area desig-
nated. Then the zone has to go through the
process of being Gazetted before becoming
a law which can be enforced.
Mr. Davis said that because of the com-
plexity of getting a school zone set and im-
plemented, they will have to act now before

school starts again in September. He also
wants to have pedestrian crossings painted
at each of the schools on both roads. He
asked about getting School Zone signs
which he was told would have to be or-
dered through the Ministry of Works.
Roscoe Thompson III, Marsh Harbour
Town Committee Chairman, said they
already had some paint set aside for the
painting of pedestrian crossings and sad
that he is "all for whatever can be done
to assist," and that "Marsh Harbour town-
ship is behind you!"

Spring City's first church
celebrates first anniversary
By Canishka Alexander
Revival Faith Mission #2 is the latest ad-
dition to the community of Spring City. On
June 4 Dr. Edgburt Tinker celebrated the
church's first anniversary and dedication
of the building. Many visitors and pastors
from Nassau and residents from Abaco at-
tended the service. A great portion of the
service was dedicated to praise and worship
and featured local talents like the Dawkins
Sisters and Megan Simms and her family.
Based on 1 Samuel 16 "Come, see what
the Lord has done!" celebrations ran from
May 30 to June 4.

uct that is Bahamian made and it benefits
Mrs. Lowe said they were initially up-
set when they learned of the removal of
the permit required for the importation of
chicken into The Bahamas during the re-
cent 2010/2011 budget debate in the House
of Parliament. However, as one of the larg-
est producing farms in The Bahamas, and
one of only two remaining chicken farms,
they are committed to making it successful
and proving that good quality chicken can
be grown in The Bahamas.
The farm, which was opened in 1995 by
Lewis Pinder and his wife, is today produc-
ing 600,000 chickens (1.5 million pounds)
per year and employs 28 full time workers.
The 50-acre farm also produces seven vari-

eties of avocados and Persian limes.
Mrs. Lowe gave members of the media
a tour of their farm and explained that they
use the highest quality practices in sanita-
tion and environmental health in bringing
their product to market. The chickens are
fed an all-natural feed mix and are hor-
mone and steroid free.
Javier Rosa, one of the Ritz Carlton's
top chefs that currently works at the Abaco
Club at Winding Bay said that he was wor-
ried when he came to Abaco that he would
not be able to purchase fresh chicken,
but would instead have to settle for fro-

They will place a serialized gold coin in

the gold coin can then call in and receive
a prize.
Mrs. Lowe said, "The problem is, if you
buy U.S. [chicken], the money is going out
of the country and it's gone. We work hard
to get tourists to spend their money here
and we need to keep that money here."
She said that they "know they will have

Elbow Cay Club site
inspection and meeting
By Timothy Roberts
In a meeting steeped in passionate dis-
agreement, the Hope Town Council en-
couraged discourse between the developers
of the proposed Elbow Cay Club project
and the residents of Hope Town at a meet-
ing the Council hosted at Hope Town Har-
bour Lodge on June 9.
Prior to the meeting representatives of
the New Settlement II group, developers of
the proposed revitalization of Elbow Cay
Club, took the Hope Town Council and a
few concerned residents on a site inspec-
tion. They gave particular emphasis to the

location and size of the marina and break-
water, which is a major bone of contention
among critics of the project.
At the meeting Victor Apatt, a partner
in the Elbow Cay development group, re-
viewed their first master plan, presented
a year ago, which he said was based on
input from the community. He then gave
an overview of the new plan, showing the
various changes made which were based
on recommendations from Clay Wilhoyte,
who spoke on behalf of members of the
Mr. Apatt showed the residents that the
marina had been reduced from 150 slips to
80 slips and noted that the dock and sea-
wall no longer intruded into the nautical

traffic lane. He pointed out the boat basin
that would be dredged on the northern side
of the property next to Fry's Mangrove
and said that no mangroves or turtle grass
would be disturbed by this endeavor.
He then showed how the addition of the
boat basin would necessarily reduce the
density of the project, saying that the den-
sity would be half that of the Hope Town
Harbour Lodge which the audience agreed
was a nice property.
He said they would be hiring "99.9 per-
cent Bahamian labor" and that, in the pro-
cess of getting approv-
als, would acquire only
10 work permits which
they would not use un-
less they could not find
sufficiently qualified
persons locally.
Mr. Apatt said he
and his partners want
to be a part of the com- -
munity and added that
they have engaged in
more public communi-
cation than any of the
other projects that has
come before them. The
project will take 15-20

given the opportunity to ask questions and
give opinions on the project. The questions
focused on a number of aspects. But the
key issue many had concerned the marina,
its size and environmental impact, and also
the density of the project.
Some concerns were expressed that the
developers would not see the project to
completion, and they asked what, if any,
guarantee could they give that they would
not fail to finish the project or sell out to

another developer. Mr. Apatt responded
that he and his partners have a long history
of success in their previous ventures and
that they intend to see this project through
to the end.
Some people were in favor of the project
who felt that with some more fine-tuning
of the proposed plan the project would be
beneficial to residents of Abaco. They gave
approval to the fact that the developers had
listened to the changes that the community
wanted and have shown they are willing to
work with and listen to the community to
get a satisfactory plan on the table.
Concerns were expressed that the devel-
opers were "shmoozing" the locals but will
effectively "cut them (Bahamians) off"
once they get approval and have what they
want, using Winding Bay and Exuma's
Emerald Bay as examples. It was said that
not enough labor existed on the island and
that many would have to come from off the
cay, which raised concerns of an escalation
of crime on Hope Town.
At the end of the meeting Clay Wilhoyte
was asked by Mr. Apatt if he would serve
as an advisor to the developers to share
views and concerns of the community with
them. He said that Clay has the support of
and a good relationship with the commu-
nity of Hope Town. Mr. Wilhoyte accept-

ed the idea, having a strong endorsement
from the community.

This will the 10th concert which started

huge crowd of visitors, boater and locals.
George Nowak, Barefoot Man, and his

941 Lionfish caught in second GTC lionfish derby

By Annabelle Cross
Organizers of the Second Annual Lion-
fish Derby held on Green Turtle Cay on
June 19 reported that 941 lionfish were
captured in the event held this weekend at
the Green Turtle Club.
Twenty-one boats participated with
teams from Florida and The Bahamas
searching the Abaco waters for lionfish in
perfect weather and conditions.
First place was taken by Thomas Saw-
yer, Gavin Roberts and Colby Cross in
the boat White Roach, that came in with a
whopping 345 fish. Second place with 245
fish went to M.J. Lowe, Tyler Survance
and Kai Survance in the boat Goofin Off
and third place with 95 lionfish went to
Dale Sawyer's team on Cajun Bahamas.
First, second and third place for the larg-
est lionfish were all speared by the team on
Meander from Jacksonville, Florida. Nate
Carney, who captured the largest fish ever
recorded on Abaco, just 2cm short of a na-
tional record, told Derby organizers that he
found a hole outside the main barrier reef
off No Name Cay in 45 feet of water that
was full of very large lionfish. He used scu-
ba and a pole spear to bag the winning fish,
which was 43.4 cm in length (roughly 19
inches long) and weighing approximately

four pounds.
Derby organizers, Bobbie Lindsay from
Palm Beach, Florida, and Lad Akins from
REEF in Key Largo, Florida, said the
overall numbers were lower than last year
partially because of the local impact from
the very successful Derby held last June
which yielded over 1,400 fish. "Aware-
ness is much higher than last year, and
Bahamians and visitors alike are spearing
lionfish whenever they see them. Conse-
quently, there doesn't seem to be as many
lionfish in shallow water," said Mr. Akins.
Nick Raich from West Palm Beach,
whose team was the high scoring Ameri-
can boat two years running, said, "We
hunt around Cooper's Town, Spanish Cay
and the surrounding area, and this year, we
didn't find as many fish. But, we still had
a great time."
As in the first Derby, fish were filleted
and cooked on site behind the scoring sta-
tion by the Green Turtle Club, giving ob-
servers and participants an opportunity to
sample this delicious fish. This year Tropic
Seafood Limited of Nassau arranged to
purchase the larger fillets of lionfish for $6
per pound. According to Derby organizer,
Mrs. Lindsay, "Tropic's offer to purchase
lionfish is an exciting development because


m 5pm

creating a market for li-
onfish is the best way to
control the population of
this invasive fish. This
has always been one of
our main objectives."
Over $5,000 in cash
was awarded to the win-
ning teams for the most,
biggest and smallest li-
onfish. Co-sponsors
Green Turtle Club, and
Brendal's Dive Cen-
ter welcomed the full
hotel and marina and
gave special discounts
for Derby participants,
their friends and fami-
lies. Next year's Derby
is set for June 24-25,
2011. For full results

This jubilant team won the Lionfish Derby held on Green Turtle
Cay on June 19. This was their second year of coming in first
place. This year they caught 345 fish. They are Colby Cross,
Gavin Roberts and Thomas Sawyer on the White Roach.

on May 18 signed a $10,109,000 loan of
intent and a technical assistance grant of
$37,000 with the Caribbean Development
Bank for the reconstruction of docks and
bridges on Andros and Eleuthera and in-

applications they received. The Pathfind-
ers determined this year that, even though
things have been economically tougher,
that they would help the greatest number
of student that they could.
The qualifications determining the
awardees of the scholarships are students
who have at least a 3.0 GPA, who have
a "significant or real need and who are
involved in their communities. Marga-
ret Smith, a Counselor at the Christian
Counseling Center and one of five inter-
viewers, said what stood out about these
students is that they "were dedicated, sac-
rificed a lot; they had goals and ambitions
and they had the kind of passion that said
"I want a future'."
Michael Albury, Chairman of the Abaco
Pathfinders, said to the students, "Your
success makes it easier for us to raise mon-
ey for you." He said he was sure the group
would make us proud.
Over the years Pathfinders has raised
about $550,000 and has helped 126 Abaco
students through its scholarship program

Two charged with boat theft

By Timothy Roberts
Two young men from Green Turtle Cay
were charged in the Magistrate's Court in
Marsh Harbour on May 26 with stealing
and receiving a boat and attempting to steal
The young men, 19-year-old Michael
Lavarity and 20-year-old Leandro Curry,
were charged with the theft of a 23-foot Ox
Boat with a 235 hp engine valued at $8000
belonging to Roy Boles and attempting to
steal a 32-foot Century boat with two 250
hp engines valued at $80,000 belonging to
David Lander between May 22 and May
Administrator Cephas Cooper, sitting in
for Magistrate Crawford McKee, read the
charges to the young men. He said that due
to the seriousness of the matter they were
not required to enter a plea. However,
when the young men agreed to have their
case heard in the local magistrate's court
and not in the Supreme Court in Nassau,
the charges were read again and they both
entered a plea of not guilty to all charges.
Cpl. Perkins Collie, prosecuting officer
for the police, requested that the two young
men be denied bail because it was felt they
would commit a similar offense again. He
noted that Mr. Lavarity was out on bail
already, due to appear before court to an-
swer charges of a similar nature.
Simeon Brown, lawyer for the defense

of Mr. Lavarity, said that there was not
"one scintilla" of evidence that his client
committed the crime and that he should not
be denied bail simply because of a pending
case before him. He alleged that his cli-
ent was in the company of a police officer
in Green Turtle Cay at the time of the of-
fense, adding that he ought to be consid-
ered innocent until proven guilty.
Mario Gray, lawyer for the defense of
Mr. Curry, echoed the statements of Mr.
Brown and added that his client should not
be denied bail because of the perceived
prevalence of boat thefts. He added that his
client has no prior arrests or record and is
not a threat to society or himself.
Cpl. Collie said they, indeed, have
evidence enough to arrest them including
eyewitness accounts, and he was still of
the opinion that they should be detained,
saying that not having a prior conviction
should not be grounds to grant bail.
Administrator Cooper said he sees no
justification for denying Mr. Curry's bail
because he has no prior record or arrest.
He was granted bail for $1000 with the
condition that he report to the Green Turtle
Cay Police Station every Thursday before
5 p.m. until his court date. Mr. Lavarity
was denied bail and will be remanded to
Fox Hill until the two attend the magis-
trate's court in Cooper's Town on October
1, 2010.

Mr. Cartwright was addressing a

He confirmed that The Bahamas is

onerous," he explained, "particularly

"Despite the issues associated with

Abaco holds first Maritime Cadet graduation

Maritime industry opens news doors for participants
By Canishka Alexander
The Abaco District of the Bahamas
Maritime Cadet Corps held a graduation
ceremony at Mangoes Restaurant on June
12. Their theme: The Year of the Seafar-
Jaleesa Russell was the moderator for
the ceremony and called on Timmesha Rus-

Russell told the audience that they made
the most of all the opportunities offered to
them through the Marine Cadet program.
In February the Abaco Cadets attended the
Bahamas International Maritime Confer-

that included a tour of the Grand Bahama
Capt. Glender Knowles, program co-

filled with graduations as
students completed one
phase of their lives ready to
begin the next phase. This

this year.
"Commendations are in order," Dr.
Black said as she proudly announced that
the class of 2010 had more students with
passing grades than the national average.
She urged the students to continue to reach
for the top and challenged them to take
responsibility for their classmates. "Con-
tinue to check each other along the way,"
she advised.
Edison Key, MP for South Abaco, ad-
dressed the graduates briefly but to the
point. "Your role as future leaders of the
country begins today," he reminded them.
"There is a need for nurses, doctor, teach-
ers," he said, "but one of you must make
the House of Assembly." He left them with
these words, "If you want to be happy,
lower your expectations; if you want to be
great, raise them."
The most recommendations came from
Bishop Anthony Campbell, who dedicated
his sermon to the students. He deliberated
on three important words, the first two to
consider as guides for their future: courage
and persistence; the third word, never to
engage into: procrastination. "Procrastina-
tion is the grave in which opportunity is
buried," he warned. "Learn to profit from
the past, but invest in the future and keep
on learning," was his parting advice.
Cyber Learning
Centre Graduation
By Jennifer Hudson
On June 11 Cyber Learning Centre
graduated its two Grade 12 students along
with five Grade 6 students. Being a school

of smaller
numbers the
two gradu-
ations were
held simul-

were Sidney
McIntosh, Valedictorian, and Kyle Pin-
der. Following the presentation of Grade
6 awards by Principal Sharon Greene, the
Grade 12 awards were presented. The two
graduates received plaques denoting the
subjects each had excelled in.
In his Valedictorian's speech, Sidney
noted that he and Kyle had come that far
through hard work and dedication and that
they must face life's journey and its chal-
lenges with endurance and the pursuit of
excellence. In reference to the school's
theme for Commencement 2010 he stated,
"Excellence is a mind set, not an outcome
and is a perpetual desire to surpass prior
achievements. We must make sure that we
don't repeat any mistakes we have made
and must work hard to make our dreams
come true."
Keynote speaker was Simmone Bowe,
Vice President of Human Resources at
Baker's Bay. She also referred to the
theme The Pursuit of Excellence and de-
fined excellence as "a habit, a mind set
and attitude and how we look at life, work
and ourselves." Ms. Bowe told the gradu-

ates that if they are to be successful in big
things, they must develop excellence in
small things and it is something they must
do every day. She warned the graduates
that they will now be competing with the
world and advised, "Our approach to work
is what will set us apart, and we must get
serious if we are to compete. People are
too satisfied with being average." She en-
couraged them to develop a good reputa-
tion as it is better than money. Following
her address, she presented the two Grade
12 graduates with their diplomas.
During the ceremony a group of Cyber
students performed a delightful song selec-
tion accompanied by their music teacher,
Reneiro Ballingbing on his guitar. At the
close of the ceremony Basil Been offered
a moving dedication in song to the gradu-

ates encouraging them, "When you walk
through a storm, hold your head up high."

brings with it challenges and tribulations,
but they must remain law abiding citizens.
Besides this he stated other boundaries or
limitations are made up in their head. He
told them to remember that old adage as a
man thinketh, so he will surely become.
He encouraged the graduates to not let any-
thing hinder them from their dreams. Fi-
nally, he told them not to be afraid to work
as when they work hard they can achieve
a lot. They must focus on those things that
they want to pursue and not allow life's
distractions to take them of course.
Shane Cash, one of their teachers, gave
them some very sound advice. As a former

student himself, now teacher of the school,
he gave them a clear view of what types
of things he encountered as he began his
pursuit. He told them that they do not call
it the real world for nothing. He advised
them to remember the following: always
be positive regardless of the difficulty of a
situation, deal with diversity the right way,
be the best at whatever career they chose,
and refrain from having a bad attitude. He
wished them all well and thanked them for
the many lessons he learned while with

encouraged her fellow graduates to remain
steadfast and follow dreams.
All of the graduates received their awards
and diplomas. Those students to make the
principal's list were Amy Mackay, Aus-
tin Koepp, Jessie Haestad (salutatorian),
and Evelande Gedeon. Chamon McIntosh
made the honor roll and the most improved
student for the entire school was Chelsea

school with new audio equipment.
Eight Graduate from

By Samantha V. Evans
Soaring towards Excellence was the
theme chosen for Long Bay School's 2010
commencement exercise held at the school
on June 10.
Principal Jacqueline Collie gave the
graduates advice for their lives ahead and
reminisced upon her fondest memories of
each of the students. She spoke of the high
ambitions of the graduates and gave each
of them words of encouragement from
great men and women of the past and pres-
ent to steer them in the right direction.

spoke of how the love, support and encour-

of her experiences at Long Bay School.
She had fond memories of her classmates
and stated that their bond will last forever.
Tears flowed as she expressed her grati-

The speaker for this commencement

S.C.Bootle graduation
focuses on success
By Canishka Alexander
June 18 marked a memorable occasion
in the lives of the 2010 graduates of S.C.
Bootle High School as they triumphantly
marched down the aisles of Faith Walk
Church of God in Cooper's Town during
their graduation exercise.
Dr. Lenora Black, District Superinten-
dent, encouraged the students to believe in
themselves in order to find success in their
future endeavours.
The same sentiment was echoed by Huel
Moss. Jr., during his principal's report.
Although the students lacked the number
of teachers they required during the 2009-
2010 school year, they were able to beat
the odds. His formula for success included
a commitment to God, high moral values
and strong family values. He particularly
thanked his staff at S.C. Bootle, whom he
acknowledged were the students' driving
Shavantae Pedican, told students during
her salutatorian's address that they would
not have made it so far without the support
of each other, the dedication of parents
and teachers and, most importantly, the
grace of God.
Before the keynote address was deliv-
ered by Kenneth Romer, the graduating

class entertained the audience with a musi-
cal selection. Romer's speech fed on their
theme Success has no limits." He told the
graduates that their graduation signified
a beginning and not an end. However, to
become successful, he informed them that
success and failure do not walk together.
He explained that there are several factors
that limit success: past failures, present
successes and future plans.
Head girl Timmesha Russell motivated
them with a poem she had written called
"I made it regardless." She had lost her
mother as a little girl and had faced many
obstacles throughout her lifelong journey,
but as her poem illustrated, she made it.
She was awarded the L.A. Meister Award
for her athletic and academic contributions
to the school.
Several attendees were called on to as-
sist with the presentation of the awards.
The principal's award was kept as a sur-
prise, but it was soon revealed during the
ceremony. Fredericka McIntosh, deputy
head girl, was the recipient of the award.
Anya Mills, valedictorian, was anxious
to deliver her address as she looked out
over the audience with a dimpled smile.
During the past six years, S.C. Boo-
tle High has played an instrumental role
in shaping them into the young men and
women they are today. She recognized her
teachers, whom she said she was fortunate
to have because they are some of the most
special teachers in the world. She thanked
her parents and grandparents for their con-
tinuous support.
Special thanks went to Treasure Cay

The twenty-eight proud graduates of S. C. Bootle High School were happy on June 18 as
they graduated, ready to begin the next stage of their lives. Their ceremony was held at
the new Faith Walk Church of Good Cathedral in Cooper's Town.

Sherlycia is not concerned about being
away from home in a foreign country for
so long as she says that she spent some
time last summer taking a course at a Uni-
versity in Florida which has prepared her
for it. The other three students, while very

are a little anxious about being away from
home in a foreign country.
All four cadets and their parents attend-

Dawkins, who will be their chaperone in
Costa Rica, prepared them for their trip,

them and giving much helpful advice. The
cadets were informed about differing cus-

and told to respect these differences. They
were given a detailed talk on manners and
In order to prepare them for their month
abroad, the cadets have already completed
Phases 1 and 2 of their language experi-
ence. The first was Language in Action
during which they took part in many ac-
tivities all entirely in Spanish. This phase
climaxed in a poster competition in Nassau
in which they competed against all of the

cadets there and Sherlycia placed first and
Kyvonne place third. The second phase
involved work experience, and all of the
students enjoyed their experiences working
with tourism-oriented businesses. Sherly-
cia was especially fortunate at Baker's Bay
as she worked in the culinary department
along with a pastry chef from Costa Rica,
so was able to practice her Spanish-speak-
ing skills daily.
The month abroad constitutes Phase3 of
the programme and provides a total im-
mersion experience in the language. While

in Spanish, not only during classes but the
entire time so that upon their return, their

St. Francis awarded stu-
dents of Grades 6 and 12
By Samantha V. Evans
An awards ceremony was held at St.
Francis de Sales Church for the graduating
grade six and twelve students of St. Fran-
cis de Sales Catholic School on June 2nd.
Twenty-one students made up the graduat-
ing class.
Principal Josephine Kumar told the par-
ents that they have a lot to be proud of but
encouraged them to continue to persist so
that their children can excel further as they
begin this next phase of their lives. She
went over many accomplishments the stu-
dents had this school year with great pride
stating that it takes some schools five years
to achieve what their students have done
in just one year. She reminded all of the
students to be people of integrity and have
good manners. As they plan their future,
she wants them to become financially liter-
ate, learning to save and to spend wisely.
They must remember to be ethical in all of
their dealings with people and to keep God
in their lives.
Before the awards were distributed, the
grade twelve students passed the torch to
the grade eleven students and told them to
keep the flame alive.
Honor Roll students for grade twelve
were Joy Archer, Lynzandria Archer, Se-
renity Forbes, Marcus Sands, Jr. and Tyler
Sawyer. Presenting certificates on behalf
of the Rotary and Pilot Clubs were George
Reviere, Joann Bradley, Neulessa Major
and Rachel Metellus.

love the Nassau Grouper, it is one of the

Schools join in Pre-
Independence Service
By Samantha V. Evans
On June 9th the Department of Educa-
tion Abaco held a Pre-Independence Day
Service at Central Abaco Primary School
with the theme One God, One People, One
Bahamas. Students from schools of all dis-
tricts were in attendance and took part in
the service. As the program got underway,
the songs, dances and tributes all focused
on the students showing pride for their be-
loved Bahamaland.
Education Supt. Dr. Lenora Black spoke

proudly as a Bahamian as she told the stu-
dents that this land belongs to all of us.
Even though she began her education at a
school in Murphy Town, she had to leave
so that she could better her life. She ended
up taking on the responsibility of a family
and raising children and so too the Baha-
mas had to grow and go through changes
as well. The changes were so profound;
she explained that the Bahamas is now an
independent nation.
The Bahamas can celebrate its indepen-
dence every year on July 10th as a result
of that grand event that took place on July
10th, 1973. Every citizen is entitled to the
benefits and privileges associated with the

Bahamas being an independent nation.
Senior Administrator Cooper commend-
ed the Department of Education for having
a pre-independence service to involve stu-
dents as Independence Day is when school
is closed. Independence should involve
pride in all of us who are privileged to live
in The Bahamas. The students can show
Bahamian pride in several ways. They
can take care of the country by not litter-
ing and writing all over the wall, on the
desks and school property. They can treat
each other with respect and they can sing
the national anthem without scratching or

The guest speaker was Pastor Deion
Gibson from First Assembly Church in
Marsh Harbour. The Bahamas has ac-
complished much, he explained, therefore,
Independence is celebrated every year to
remember this great accomplishment. He
told the kids that he does not want the Ba-
hamas to become like many other countries
that are dirty and have black sand on their
beaches so it is important that they renew
their commitment to things Bahamian. He
pleaded with them to take time to learn
about Bahamian artists and things unique
to the Bahamas. Additionally, he asked
them to renew their commitment to God
and to keep The Bahamas clean to protect
our number one industry Tourism. Be-
fore ending, he prayed a prayer of com-
mitment with the students as a reminder
to hold the Bahamas in high esteem. The
service ended with Bahamian music being
played and dancing in the assembly area.
US Embassy officer
speaks with students
By Samantha V. Evans
The U.S. Embassy's Economic Officer,
Brooke Moppert, accompanied by Abaco's
Superintendent, Dr. Lenora Black, and
Felemease Sawyer, Education Officer for
Primary Schools, visited Central Abaco
Primary School on June 17th. Ms. Mop-
pert, who is Executive Assistant Director
at the Embassy, was on Abaco to assess the

economic situation.
Additionally, since one of the platforms
of the U.S. Ambassador is reading, Ms.
Moppert read to the students of Central
Abaco Primary and spoke to them about
the benefits of them being able to read. She
told them that reading is the key to a big-
ger and brighter future. When a person can
read, that person can pursue any dream he
or she has.
After she spoke to the students about
reading, she read some of the book Bridge
to Terabitia. She asked them to tell her
about the moral of the study which, accord-
ing to Kadesha Canton, had two morals: the
power of friendship and building courage.
Ms. Moppert was very impressed with the
maturity and intelligence of the students.
She asked them what careers they want
to pursue and the kids told her. She told
them that they have big dreams so it is im-
portant that they not allow anything to stop
them from achieving them. Before leav-
ing, the students asked her questions about
the U.S. Embassy and applying for a visa
which she graciously answered.

S.C. Bootle receives,
gives donations
By Canishka Alexander
Recently, the Agriculture Department of
S.C. Bootie High School was the recipient
of some much needed tools. The timely do-
nation was made by Ellen Kuhnle of Trea-
sure Cay and included wheelbarrows, cut-
lasses, rakes, hoes and hoses. The tools will
assist with the preparation and maintenance
of the vegetable plots maintained by the
students. Mr. Lyndon Scott, Agriculture
teacher at the school, as well as the admin-
istration, staff and students were thankful to
Mrs. Kuhnle for her donation to the school.
Earlier in the year, Francis Francois,
a grade 9 student from S.C. Bootle, lost
her home in Sand Banks when a fire swept
through the Haitian community. According to
Principal Huel Moss, students and staff col-
lected funds to assist her
and her family, and the
donation was presented
to her mother, Mary
Noel-Francois by Moss.

Kathleen Albury, a real estate agent
with H.G. Christie, was recently awarded
the prestigious Certified Residential Spe-
cialist Designation (CRS) by the Council
of Residential Specialists, the largest not-
for-profit affiliate of the National Associa-
tion of Realtors.
This distinguished award is obtained
by Realtors who meet stringent criteria
including the completion of several ad-
vanced Realtor courses and who have
demonstrated professional expertise in the
field of residential real estate. Fewer than
40,000 Realtors in the US have earned
the CRS credential and out of the hun-
dreds of licensed realtors in The Bahamas
only 36 have achieved this honor.

Yonick Aaron is the son of Elisha and
Simone Pinder of Sandy Point. Aaron
has been a student of St. Francis de Sales
Catholic School since 2005 and has main-
tained a consistent level of excellence with
his grade point average always exceeding a
3.45 each term. His hard work is evident
in all of his many accomplishments, and
he was awarded most outstanding in vari-
ous subjects at the school's annual awards
ceremony. He is very active in school ac-
tivities and community affairs. He will be
accompanied by his mother to the summit.
This program is coordinated by People
to People Ambassador Programs to fulfill
the vision former President Dwight Eisen-
hower had for fostering world citizenship
when he founded the People to People In-
ternational during his presidency in 1956.

Home buyers and sellers can be assured
that CRS Designees subscribe to the strict
Realtors code of ethics, have access to
the latest technology and are specialists in
helping clients maximize profits and mini-
mize costs when buying or selling a home.
While the title is long, Kathleen M. Al-
bury, CRS, BRI, e-PRO, it allows clients
an awareness that this is a successful Bro-
ker/Appraiser who can provide them with
exceptional service. Kathleen's 11 year
experience in real estate includes sales of
luxury estates, private islands, develop-
ment properties as well as developed and
undeveloped parcels of land.

The First Case Study in Sustainable Tourism

By Larry Smith
The acrimonious and long-running ef-
fort by some residents of Guana Cay to
derail the multi-million-dollar Baker's Bay
development came to an end last Novem-
ber when the Privy Council in England
ruled against the Save Guana Cay Reef As-
sociation, represented by Freeport lawyer
Fred Smith.
The environmental contract between
the Baker's Bay Club and the University
of Miami also came to an end last year,
and Dr. Kathleen Sullivan-Sealey, the ma-
rine biologist who ran the environmental
management programme, was in Marsh
Harbour earlier this year. She discussed
the five years of work that has been billed
as the first "case study on sustainable tour-
ism" in the Bahamas.
The controversial Baker's Bay project
was launched in 2004 by a California-
based developer on 585 acres of mostly
private land on the northern third of Guana
Cay. Like all such projects it has been af-
fected by the global economic downturn,
but the 165-slip marina and adjacent "vil-
lage" opened for business last year. The
18-hole golf course is partially complete,
and installed infrastructure includes a re-
verse osmosis facility for potable water,
a sewerage system and a waste treatment
plant as well as roads for the 244 home
sites with underground utilities.

The University of Miami contract was
for an environmental management pro-
gramme aimed at mitigating disturbed ar-
eas and protecting important ecosystems
while monitoring the overall development
The work began with baseline studies of
the site and near shore waters in 2004 and
included the removal of invasive species,
the restoration of coastal dunes, the inte-
gration of advanced infrastructure projects
and the preservation of native vegetation.
The total cost of the environmental pro-
gramme itself was almost a million dollars
over the life of the contract, while mitiga-
tion and infrastructure costs totalled over
$10 million.
In fact, despite the often bad press it
has received over the years, Baker's Bay
is the only development in The Bahamas
with full-time professionals responsible for
active environmental management and EIA
compliance Bahamian marine biologist
Livingstone Marshall is a vice president.
According to Dr. Sealey, the UM con-
tract was a unique partnership between a
private development company and academ-
ic scientists, with one of the biggest pluses
being "the training and exposure of Col-
lege of The Bahamas students to the reali-
ties of development."
Born in Missouri, Dr. Sealey's interest
in the marine environment was sparked

by childhood visits to her grandparents'
home in the Florida Keys. "Early fishing
trips turned into illustrated discussions of
the environmental future of the Keys and
South Florida," she recalled.
"In 1984 I was appointed to the faculty
of the University of Miami and by that
time the Keys had undergone rapid dredge-
and-fill growth, and political fights were
underway on how to control the valuable
real estate and tourism industries. The is-
lands of The Bahamas are now faced with
the same rapid development and expansion
seen in the Florida Keys in the 1960s and
In 2002 she began leading a 10-year
study on the coastal ecology of The Baha-
mas sponsored by the Earthwatch Institute,
an international environmental charity that
engages student volunteers in field research
and education. The focus of this work has
been to understand how natural vegetation
protects coastlines, and how pollution af-
fects nearshore waters and fisheries. The
Guana Cay research represents one small
piece of this giant puzzle.
"In 2004 I was asked to look at the
Baker's Bay site and see how to keep the
ecology intact throughout the development
process," she said. "The idea was to docu-
ment best practices in sustainable develop-
ment, and it was exciting to have develop-
ers actually talking and listening to me. I
looked at projects all over The Bahamas to
see what works and what doesn't. I wanted

to learn why developers do things that are
so destructive to the environment, and I
wanted to set measurable environmental
goals that they could follow."
The research began with a rapid eco-
logical assessment to get a good charac-
terisation of the site prior to development.
Experts from the Antiquities, Monuments
& Museums Corporation conducted a his-
torical/archaeological survey of the prop-
erty while a team from Florida's Fairchild
Tropical Garden undertook an inventory of
plants and set up a protected plant man-
agement programme. Rather than bring in
new stock from Florida, native plants were
cultivated for landscaping and coastal res-
toration from cuttings taken on the island.
On the marine side, scientists monitored
water quality before, during and after con-
struction of the marina to generate the data
needed to meet Blue Flag environmental
standards. The Blue Flag programme is
a voluntary eco-label awarded to marinas
around the world that meet strict criteria
dealing with water quality, safety and envi-
ronmental education and management.
Huge quantities of debris and garbage
were removed from all coastal areas of the
Baker's Bay site especially from the der-
elict shore facility built decades ago to ser-
vice cruise ship passengers and artificial
reefs were deployed in degraded nearshore

areas and seeded with transplanted cor-
als. Over 90 acres of casuarina trees were
removed from the shoreline and mulched
so that the developers could recreate natu-
ral Bahamian dunes planted with locally
grown sea oats. And scores of diseased
wild cats were trapped and euthanised.
Coastal setbacks were established for
each type of shoreline on the site along
with buffer zones where no building is al-
lowed. At least 20 feet of natural vegeta-
tion was reserved between lots and along
roads. And homeowners are required to
use xeroscaping and native plants to con-
serve fresh water resources.
In addition, two large nature preserves
were established to protect mangrove areas
along with a turtle nest monitoring pro-
gramme that reports directly to the Depart-
ment of Marine Resources. More than 150
checkpoints were set up throughout the site

to monitor environmental impacts as the
development progressed.
On the minus side, Dr. Sealey cited
the general lack of science literacy among
employers, staff and customers as a big
problem. "We conducted employee train-
ing and public outreach programmes, but
these need to be very aggressive in order
to get environmental principles across.
There was also inadequate policing of sub-
contractors for environmental compliance
and almost no government oversight of the
project we don't even know if the BEST
Commission read our reports."
Arguing that projects like Baker's Bay
should put environmental management on
the same level as marketing, she estimated
that 17-20 per cent of total project invest-
ment should be devoted to environmental
"Turbidity from dredging was a big chal-
lenge, and it was a constant battle to ensure
that sediment curtains were in place," she

,* E' / ,A
Baker's Bay had a five-year contract for an environmental management program that
monitored its impact on the environment, insisting on many methods that preserved the
environment, protecting both the land and sea. The monitoring contract finished late
last year and indicated that there was very little negative effect on the environment. This
picture is of the marina that opened the end of last year.

said. "Fourteen-foot-wide roads needed 70
feet cleared for infrastructure installation.
The sheer rate of development was unex-
pected for us, and equipment always wins
on a fast-paced development site. Plans
change and there is no such thing as a per-
fect development. But the important thing
is how you monitor practices."
In short, as with most things in life, the
road to hell is paved with good intentions
and the devil is in the details. The main
conclusion we can draw from the experi-
ence at Baker's Bay is that the EIA process
can and should be advanced from a static
exercise to an ongoing monitoring process
in order to achieve key environmental and
resource management goals.
It is ironic that the Baker's Bay project
invested so heavily in this groundbreaking
environmental management programme
while the government's $105 million heavy
fuel oil power plant under construction
nearby at Wilson City on Abaco proceeded
with little consultation or thought and has
been under sustained attack from some citi-

zen groups for being environmentally ir-
The new power plant was, in fact, prom-
ised to the developers of the Baker's Bay
and Winding Bay resorts by the Christie
administration years ago to meet Abaco's
rising electricity demand, but critics say it
will be a pollution nightmare.
"The Baker's Bay project clearly shows
how long-term planning, up-front re-
sources and an in-depth understanding of
tropical island environments are required
for environmentally responsible develop-
ment," Dr. Sealey wrote in the 2009 edi-
tion of the Journal of Sustainable Tourism.
"The benefits (stabilising the shoreline,
reducing pollution and protecting biodiver-
sity) will support the long-term viability of
a tourism project."
Success depends on three key planks,
she says: promoting better understanding
of environmental issues, convincing poli-
cymakers to take a longer view of econom-
ic development, and building partnerships
with developers.

Fun at Camp Abaco will soon begin

By Jennifer Hudson
It is Camp Abaco time again and this
means lots of good Christian fun for boys
and girls from the ages of 7 years to 19
years. Literally thousands of young people
have not only enjoyed the fun but have also
had their lives transformed by the Camp
Abaco experience.
Each year there are three camps to cater
to different age groups and this year these
camps will run as follows:

By Jennifer Hudson
Terranise Taylor, a 9th grade student
of S.C. Bootle High School, and Sheldon
Martin, an 11th grade student of Long Bay
school, were winners of the Camp Abaco
T-shirt design and motto contests spon-
sored by Robert Crichton, a benefactor
of Camp Abaco. An invitation went to all
high schools and to young people generally
via Bahamas Christian Network inviting
students to participate in designing a motto
and a logo which would truly convey the
spirit of Camp Abaco.
Terranise Taylor came up with the
motto Connecting Our Youth in Christian
Unity which will also be printed on the T
shirts. "I hope these T shirts will promote
a feeling of togetherness and connection
for all the campers," stated Mr. Crichton
who presented Terrenise with a cheque for
The winner of the artistic design was
Sheldon Martin, who incorporated Adven-
ture of a Lifetime into his design. He was
unable to attend the presentation ceremony

Junior Camp 7-9 years July 5-10 $110
Intermediate 10-12 years July 12-17 $115
Teen Camp 13-19 year July 19-24 $125
Application forms can be obtained in
Marsh Harbour from The Paint Place, Ab-
aco Shoe Gallery and the Post Office, all in
Marsh Harbour and in Treasure Cay from
the Full Gospel Assembly Church of God.
Pastor Stafford Symonette, camp orga-
nizer, has been busily preparing for many
months and says, "This year we are ex-

as he was off island. He will received a
cheque in the same amount to Terranise on
his return.
Terranise thanked Mr. Crichton and the
Footprints Foundation and impressed ev-
eryone by saying that she intends to save
the money. When asked how she came up
with the winning motto, she said that she
heard about the competition at Camp Aba-
co last year and that it was not really hard
to come up with the motto as she just asked
herself "what does Camp Abaco do?"
"We come together for fun, it is Chris-
tian based and promotes Christian unity,"
she determined. Last year was Terrenise's
first time at Camp Abaco as she had just
come to live on Abaco. "I cannot wait for
camp again this year and will attend every
year until I am 19. Then I hope to become
a counselor," she said. When asked what
is so special to her about Camp Abaco, she
replied, "They give you encouragement.
It is very hard to be a Christian teenager
these days, but they listen to your prob-
lems, help you and give guidance."

pecting a very exciting camp and several
different things will take place this year.
We have a very good sponsor in the person
of Robert Crichton, who is buying into our
God-given vision so that young people can
be all that they can be. Last year he donat-
ed a beautiful Hobie Cat and this year he
has decided that he wants all campers to re-

ceive a complimentary
T-shirt and launched a
contest for a design and
a motto."
Mr. Crichton has
been coming to Abaco
for the past 20 years
and resides most of
the year in Treasure
Cay. He and his wife,
Normaine, are trust-
ees of a family charity
called the Footprints
Foundation and have
been involved in help-
ing Camp Abaco for
the past two years.
"We like to help with
educational projects
worldwide and feel that
Camp Abaco is one of
the most worthwhile
causes," he stated. His
foundation sponsors
places at Camp Abaco


for many kids who would not otherwise be
able to get there and last year brought kids
from some of the southern islands as far
down as Turks and Caicos.

it the two-week agri programme, they will

with the intermediates and will receive
their second week of camp free. Handi-

Sailing will play a large part in this
year's camp as campers will have the use
of the Hobie Cat donated by Mr. Crichton,
a Sunfish donated by Frederick Gottlieb
and several canoes and paddle boats. It is
hoped to have a sailing instructor on hand
to teach the kids the skill of sailing.
Pastor Symonette added that in addition
to sponsors, instructors and counselors, "I
will be there and Jesus will be there so it
is sure to be a great and awesome camp."

many from becoming involved in the in-

Capt. Knowles said one of The Baha-
mas' greatest achievements is having the
largest ship, Oasis of the Seas, bear the Ba-
hamian flag. The Bahamas is recognized as
the country with the third largest registry
in the world in the maritime industry, be-

ing surpassed only by Panama and Liberia.
She further stated that The Bahamas' reg-

that are 10 years old or less, that are safe
and for those that are not going to create
any environmental issues.
Tevon Strachan and Traz Nixon shared
their experience in the marine industry.
Both men were top leaders in their respec-

Lady Angler Hooks First Place in Billfish Tournament

With 15 boats and nearly 100 anglers
competing in the 27th Annual Treasure
Cay Billfish Tournament on June 13-18 at
Treasure Cay Resort, one woman leapt to
the top on the first day and held the lead
until the end. Lisa Flack on Kilowett re-
leased a blue and a white marlin on the first
of four days of fishing. The same day Bet-
A-Buc boated a 582-pound blue marlin and
Sea Baby released a blue marlin.
Kilowett and Sea Baby ran neck-to-neck
on the second day when both were the only
boats to release one blue marlin each. Sea
Baby took second place with two blue mar-
lin releases. With unseasonably slow fish-

ing conditions and flat calm seas for all
four days of fishing, the only other boat
releasing a total of two blue marlin was
last year's winner, Team Galati. Fourteen-
year-old Chris Galati, Jr., got in the action
on the last day with a blue marlin release to
clinch the Top Junior Angler award.
When "lines out" was called on the final
day, Flack said she couldn't believe they
finally won their favorite tournament af-
ter competing for so many years. She ex-
claimed, "To beat these world-class boats
at our favorite place to go (Treasure Cay)
is just unreal!" There were more trophies

Skills Bahamas holds empowerment seminar

By Jennifer Hudson
An empowerment seminar, arranged
by the Abaco Chamber of Commerce,
was held in the conference room of New
Vision Ministries on June 22. The semi-
nar was presented by Skills Bahamas, the
training arm of Deco Marketing Groups.
The mission of Skills Bahamas is "to em-
power people to become their best self by
offering them the opportunity to learn new
and practical skills that will enable them
to manage jobs and careers with new pro-
fessionalism." Attending the seminar were
more than 20 private companies.
The all-day session began with an intro-
duction by facilitator Deon Seymour Cox,
who is educated in trainer skills and for
15 years the major focus of her work has
been leadership. She told the group that
the main intent of the day's seminar was
to simplify the Employment Act of 2001 so

The Abaco Cl ,i,,,il of Commerce held a se
nar to explain the Employment Act of 2001
part of its Cl,,,,ilh, Week activities. Lesley M
cus Dean was the keynote speaker -I ii,, De
Seymour Cox facilitated the seminar

that they would feel empowered and not
entrapped by it. She introduced keynote
speaker, Lesley Marcus Dean, as "one of
the best when it comes to simplifying the
Act." Mr. Dean, a former teacher, is now
Director of Education and Training with
Bahamas Trade Union Congress and has
been Director of Labour for many years.
He is also an Attorney at Law and was on
the committee which put the Act together.
Mr. Dean stated that the Employment
Act of 2001, which actually came into
force in 2002, is an expansive one and
would take all day to elucidate. He took
the participants through all of the basic
standards, terms and conditions of em-
ployment contained in the Act. He covered
relations between employers and employ-
ees and rights of employees in the work-
place including statutory hours, pay, vaca-
tions, maternity and sick leave, overtime,
wrongful dismissal and dealing with
disputes in the workplace.
Tips were given on how to bet-
ter approach and resolve problems
in the workplace in order to reduce
the need to go outside to the La-
bour Department to bring resolu-
tion. "I want to bring an aware-
ness as to the content of the law
to enable employers and human re-
source managers to deal fairly with
their employees and prevent them
from making decisions which can
lead to litigation at the end of the
mi- day," stated Mr. Dean.
as Other topics touched on were as-
'ar- pects of health and safety at work
eon which would result in reducing oper-
ational costs to employers, and also

Trust will celebrate

Independence on Abaco

The Bahamas National Trust and the
Abaco Beach Resort are excited to come
together to celebrate Bahamian Indepen-
dence with a weekend packed full of events
and activities to support the country's na-
tional parks and protected areas.
The Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Sum-
mer: Abaco Style is a special art exhibi-
tion which will open at the Abaco Beach
Resort on the evening of July 9th with
over 15 artists exhibiting. The evening
event will open at 6 p.m. and will feature
a silent auction with the proceeds going to
support the new Fowl Cays National Park
and Pelican Cays Land and Sea Park. The
exhibition will be open from 10 a.m. 5
p.m. on July 10th.
As part of the independence celebra-

tons, the Trust will organize a special
field trip to the Abaco National Park on
July 9th to see the Bahama Parrot in its
breeding habitat. The tour will be led by
Florida State University PhD student, Car-
oline Stahala, who is conducting research
on the breeding biology and needs of the
endangered parrot on Abaco.
"We are overwhelmed with the gener-

Boat thefts security tips and information

[Boat thefts have been a problem on Ab-
acofor the past couple of years. The police
are working hard to prevent this crime and
to arrest those responsible. They have re-
quested that we reprint this article so that
boat owners can take precautionary mea-
sure to keep their boats from being stolen.
Notify the police immediately when a boat
has been stolen.]
By Timothy Roberts
"A billion dollar industry is being jeop-
ardized by the rising occurrence of boat
theft in Abaco as well as a number of is-
lands throughout The Bahamas," accord-
ing to Assistant Superintendent of Police,
Bruce Ar-
nett, Second
Charge, Ab-
aco Police
boat theft is
rising local-
ly, it can be
noted that ASP Bruce Arnett
the problem is quite widespread through-
out the Caribbean and the United States. In
a report by the National Insurance Crime
Bureau (a United States firm) there were
19,854 watercraft thefts between Janu-
ary 1, 2006, and March 31, 2009, in the
United States with Florida, California and
Texas leading the nation.
"We need all eyes on board and (to) be
ready to fight this to the end," ASP Arnett
said. "It has to be personal to every Aba-
conian because this will be impacting our
kids and generations unborn if we don't get
this (boat theft) under control."
"In this vein, the Police and the com-
munity need to come together and combat

this problem. In order for all of us to work
together, we need to be well informed and
alert to what is happening around us."
added ASP Arnett. "The boat thieves in
general are stealing boats in order to facili-
tate their primary illegal activity of drug or
human trafficking, just as stolen cars are
used in bank robberies, making themselves
harder to track."
The Police have recognized some trends
that could assist in alerting or capturing
boat thieves. These thieves who are very
smart and bold follow a pattern similar to
what is outlined here.
1. They normally steal boats between
12 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. (although recently a
boat was stolen at 8:30 p.m.)
2. There are usually two to four persons
involved in the operation.
3. They will usually watch a targeted
boat for some time before actually steal-
ing it.
4. They buy large amounts of fuel, usu-
ally two to three 55-gallon barrels at a
5. They tend to be from another island
and will partner or network with people
from local communities.
The boats that are often targeted seem
to be predominantly in the areas of Green
Turtle Cay, Treasure Cay, Hope Town and
Marsh Harbour. However, with a height-
ened awareness due to the recent increase
in thefts, they have now started to look to
private cays and smaller settlements as well.
Boats and
Motors of Choice
The thieves tend to target specific boats
because of the nature of what they are

doing. First, they are on the lookout for
larger speed boats, usually within the 27-
foot to 34-foot range, although they some-
times steal slightly smaller boats, usually
as transportation to a targeted boat.
They like a boat that offers a lot of floor
space with a center console. These are good
on the open seas as they will often be cross-
ing the Atlantic Ocean in their journey.
They are seeking boats with two or more
engines, although for shorter runs or as a
means of getting to another boat, they will
also take single engine boats from time to
time. The engines of choice are typically
200 to 300-horsepowered outboard engines.
There is a preference for carbureted engines.
Routes they May Take
When they have the boat in their posses-
sion, the thieves will take usually one of
two main routes. One route will take them
north past Grand Bahama and areas like
Maclean's Town, Walker's Cay and Grand
Cay and on to the United States coastline.
The other takes them south to certain is-
lands in The Bahamas chain, such as Bi-
mini, New Providence, Eleuthera, Exuma
or as far as Jamaica and Hispaniola in the
south and western Caribbean.
Boats have been recovered in Great
Harbour Cay, Andros, Bimini, Eleuthera,
Exuma, Long Island, Grand Bahama and
New Providence.
Possible Hiding Places
Whether the thieves intend to re-use the
stolen boat or they just want to get rid of
it because they are done with it, they will
often ditch the boats in some common ar-
eas. They frequently leave them in the man-
grove bushes, typically in places like Snake
Cay, Hole-in-the-Wall, Sandy Cay, Turtle
Creek, Sandy Point and Moore's Island.

They have been known to leave them
beached or tied up in harbours, commonly
at a public dock or a place where they will
not encounter any questioning. They have
also been found to leave them at abandoned
or secluded cays.
When they are finished with a boat,
they will sometimes have them stripped
of parts or trailer them somewhere else to
have them repainted and modified in order
to change the boat's identity. Therefore,
be mindful of persons trying to sell boats,
GPS systems, navigational devices, VHF
radios, compasses, boat engines, fishing
rods, diving gear, etc. These could be sto-
len. If so, you can find yourself arrested
for receiving stolen goods.
Times to Be Alert
According to Detective Constable Datus
Farrington (Central Detective Unit, Aba-
co), "Boat owners and marina managers
need to be on high alert during the hours
between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. The major-
ity of boats reported stolen occurred dur-
ing those hours." According to his studies,
"There is no preferred day of the week for
a boat thief to strike. They will strike at
any given day, even holidays. They have
even stolen a boat recently while guests
at a local yacht club were having a party
amidst loud music. So they are very bold.
Take nothing for granted." said Detective
"While one may assume the thieves
would choose nights with a full moon to
steal boats for better visibility, surprisingly
these thieves manage to maneuver and take
a boat through pitch darkness." Detective
Farrington added.

Court System
ASP Arnett further stated, "Courts will
often be adjourned, but we must not be
taken aback by this. We need to keep go-
ing and not give up. This must be a fight to
the very end." He continued, "The penal-
ties meted out to the perpetrators of these
crimes are up to the Magistrate's discretion
within the Bahamas Penal Code's specifi-
According to Section 340 (5) of the Pe-
nal Code Chapter 84 (the laws that relate
to boat theft):
"Whoever is convicted of stealing any-
thing to the value in the whole of five hun-
dred dollars or more in any of the following
cases, or whoever, having been previously
convicted of a similar offence, is convicted
of stealing anything of any value, in the
following cases, namely stealing from or
in any dwelling house, shop, manufactory
or vessel, or from or on any dock, wharf
or quay adjacent to any harbour or port of
entry or discharge, shall be liable to im-
prisonment for ten years.
Section 358 which relates to receiving a
stolen boat or parts says: "Whoever dishon-
estly receives any property which he knows
to have been obtained or appropriated by
any offence punishable under this Title
shall, if the offence was a felony, be guilty
of felony, or shall, if the offence was a mis-
demeanor, be liable to the same punishment
as if he had committed the offence.
Section 359 (1), referring to persons
who are convicted more than once for re-
ceiving any stolen property says: Whoever
is convicted of being a common receiver
shall be liable to imprisonment for fourteen

Prevention and
Recovery Tips
As with most prevention, everything we
can do must be with the realization that it
will often only protect us from the less de-
termined criminals. Prevention is meant to
deter, or slow down the persons) trying to
steal and will not always succeed in pre-
venting the theft. The following tips will
hopefully stop the theft of your boat, or
at least make recovering your boat much
easier and possibly quicker.
1. Make sure that your dock is well lit
(if possible, mount surveillance cameras).
2. Make sure you have your Hull Iden-
tification Number (HIN) and engines serial
numbers (S/N) recorded and always avail-
3. Record the serial numbers on all elec-
tronics on your boat.
4. Take digital photos of your boat, en-
gines and electronics equipment. Store the
photos on CD or memory device to for-
ward by e-mail to police or other boaters
for quicker recovery.
5. Install hidden fuel valves and battery
cut-off switches.
6. If possible, lock down your boat with
a chain/steel cable to secure it to the dock,
or if it is on a lift, install lift locks.
7. Do not leave your boat full of fuel
overnight unless you have to. If possible
keep fuel levels low and re-fuel just prior
to boating trips.
8. Install a GPS Tracking device Boats
with tracking devices are recovered much
sooner, usually within an hour or two from
the time it was reported stolen. The device
can also alert you and the police within
minutes of the theft occurring;
9. Keep the boat out of water when not

in use for a long period of time.
These tips may cost you more time and
money, but it will save you the pain and
agony of losing your prized possession.
ASP Arnett further stated, "We need
everyone to work together and communi-
cate across the island and cays." Abaco is
an archipelago within an archipelago and is
very complicated (for the police) to cover.
Together we (the police and community)
can make a difference."
ASP Arnett encouraged everyone, in
particular airline ticket agents, to keep a
lookout for suspicious young men travel-
ing to Abaco on one way plane and ferry

Basketball team prepares
for Las Vegas trip
By Canishka Alexander
Just after they had come back from the
recent Labour Day Classic in Freeport and
just before their big basketball weekend
toward the middle of June, Coaches God-
frey Rolle and Ishmael "Stretch" Morley
are hyped about their not-too-distant trip to
the Las Vegas Invitation Basketball Classic
in July.
According to Rolle, who coaches the
Treasure Cay Youth Club, Abaco will be
represented in the 13 and under, 15 and un-
der, 17 and under boys categories. He said
the tournament in Las Vegas will allow the
boys to feel the kind of competition and
level they need to get to in order to obtain
a basketball scholarship.
And he should know. He played in the
basketball tournament in 1988 and has
already travelled to the tournament three
times. "I know it will help the guys and
give them the exposure they need to en-
hance their skills," he stated, confidently.
In the meantime, Morley, coach of the
Youth in Action basketball team, said that
until they travel in July, the boys will start
playing a series of basketball games at
Ocean View Park in Dundas Town. The
games began in mid-June and will continue
until they leave for Las Vegas. The games
feature the 15 and 16 and under boys cate-
gory as well as the college all-star players.
Calling it their first fund raiser, Mor-
ley said he wanted to make the first step
in raising funds to cover the $800 per per-
son fees before they try to get sponsors.
"We're looking to take a quality team and
will combine with North, South and Cen-

tral Abaco," Morley explained. "It's only
going to make our kids better and take
them to the other side of life."
Although the bulk of the games will
be played in Marsh Harbour, some will
take place in North Abaco. Both coaches
thanked a number of persons in the com-
munity for their assistance with the basket-
ball programs.

Three teams of Little Leaguers and their
coaches travelled to Freeport on June 3rd

nament Championships. Over 500 youth
ages 9-25 were there to play baseball. The
teams from Abaco were 9-10, 11-12, and
13-15 years. The two younger teams each
won a game but all played well according
to the coaches and Deputy Administrator
Whelma Colebrooke.
All of the coaches were impressed with
the level of play shown by the teams espe-
cially since they got started late in the year.
They look forward to attending the games

are looking to take older teams including a

that the parents and kids were excited as
this was their first tournament and an op-

were ready for the tournament and beside
some butterflies (nerves), they executed

students have already started signing up
which is great. The committee is looking
forward to hosting Bimini and Eleuthera
for a mini tournament in November. The
committee hopes to have use of several
fields by this time.
Coach Johnny Knowles is proud that
they were able to step up their game in
time for the tournament even though they
started late. Since he was one of the coach-
es who worked with the 11-12-year-old
team while in Freeport, he explained that
they played well against Bimini. But due to
a few mishaps, they did not win but should
have. All of the pitchers did well but they
were very impressed with Samuel and Jef-
ferson. He hopes that they can get a base-

ball field so that the kids can practice on a
field that is the actual size of the one they
will compete on. Since the softball field is
bigger, this was a major disadvantage the
kids faced, he explained. However, the ex-
perience was a great one for the kids and
they had fun.

Vehicle licensing fees will increase

Abaco Swim Club and swimmers from Green Turtle Cay practiced at Long Bay School's
pool prior to a competition held on June 3rd in Hope Town.

By Timothy Roberts
In an attempt to bring the country in line
with its plans to reduce carbon emissions,
the government is propose a sizeable in-
crease in licensing fees for vehicles weigh-
ing more than 10,000 pounds starting as
early as July 1, 2010.
It is thought that the government is pro-
posing a three tiered licensing fee schedule
that is based upon the weight of the vehi-
cle. A vehicle weighing more than 10,000
pounds may be charged as high as $700 per
year, while the owner of a vehicle between

with larger engines, and now by increasing
licensing fees. Tax rates on small engine

While no suitor has yet been deter-
mined, the government is still searching
for a private operator to manage the two
airports in Abaco with Vancouver Airport
Services, which manages the Nassau Air-
port Development company, seen as the
likely candidate.
The government made provisions in the
2009/2010 Budget for the Marsh Harbour
and Treasure Cay airports to be privately
managed, according to Vincent Vander-
pool-Wallace, Minister of Tourism and
It is felt that the Nassau company will
likely be awarded the responsibility for
managing the two airports because the gov-
ernment is pleased with the job presently

being done by the Canadian company in
overseeing the $409.5 million construction
and refurbishment of the Lynden Pindling
International Airport and believes it would
be ideally suited to improve the airports on
According to Mr. Vanderpool-Wallace,
the time frame for the exchange of the man-
agement of Abaco's airports is "as quickly
as possible." Plans are current being drawn
up by the Vancouver company for the con-
struction of a new terminal building and air
traffic control tower which is expected to
begin construction by the end of this year.
Recent renovations have included a new
runway and repaving the old runway which
will soon be completed to be used as a taxi-

Min. Deveaux continued, "With the
number of pleasure boats in Florida, the
next step is to train Bahamians to match the
potential of our environment and to meet
the beauty of our water," said Dr. De-
veaux. "The smaller boats and the larger
boats represent just under 100,000 plea-
sure crafts registered in Florida," said Dr.
"We seek to grow the Maritime Au-
thority in every respect, but probably the
most significant area where we can grow
it in the short run is the yacht registry,"
said Dr. Deveaux. "We want to increase
it [yacht registration] by 10 percent in the
next year and then grow it from there as
we move on."

For opportunity, look no further than Abaco

By Bradley Albury
A student at the University of Gerogia
It is difficult to talk about opportuni-
ty during hard times. The global reces-
sion has affected The Bahamas as much
as anywhere else, and our reliance on
foreigners' prosperity makes us dispro-
portionately vulnerable. But it is exactly
times such as these that we should discuss
the future. Our country's success relies
on the upcoming generation and its de-
cisions. Unfortunately, there has always
been the threat of a "brain drain," where
the brightest and most driven of our youth
choose to seek a career abroad. This is un-
fortunate because they will miss out on so
many possibilities.
Abaco has just as much, if not more,
potential than any other island in The Ba-
hamas. I believe Abaco certainly presents
more opportunity than Nassau, which has
received the vast majority of investment
and focus since the founding of our coun-
try. Abaco shows the characteristics of a
young economy primed for growth. Our


( I (; T iiiC. N i ~

growth, however, needs to be controlled,
sustainable and avoid the pitfalls that rapid
development brings. The only way we can
experience this kind of healthy maturity is
if our students who go away for work expe-
rience or schooling return to sow the seeds
of their education. Those who choose not
to leave Abaco after finishing high school
must also realize their important role in
Abaco's future and work hard to secure it.
There is no reason an Abaconian ad-
vertising firm cannot compete with one
in New Providence; nor should a labour
contractor from Florida receive any more
clout than a company based in Marsh Har-
bour or Dundas Town. Nothing stops Ab-
aco from being known for her many first
class businesses. The fact is many of us
completely disregard Abaco when consid-
ering entrepreneurial hot spots. Our island
need not be silent in the world of business.
We should not think of ourselves as a dis-
connected "Out Island." We have some of
the smartest, most capable students in the
country and these same students need to re-

Treasure Cay beach is eroding away

- -- -

:7 ... *l" -, ...

The north end of Treasure Cay Beach is eroding away. Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham
has set aside the north end of the beach as a public beach. Each member of the House
was given $100,000 in 2008 and 2009 to spend at their discretion to benefit their con-
stituency. Mr. Ingraham spent his funds to make the beach a public meeting place for all
communities in North Abaco. When the project began, the beach extended far out. But
during the last two years, the beach has receded to the point that the foundations of the
gazebos are threatened. All the casuarinas were removed in an effort to slow the erosion.
It is not clear why this erosion is taking place. It is not clear whether the groynes at the
far south end of the beach are responsible.

Church News

Renardo Curry is
ordained as a deacon
By Samantha V. Evans
May 23rd Renardo Curry became a
deacon at Bethany Gospel Chapel in Mur-
phy Town. The service was one filled with
praise, prayer, and the reading of God's
word which ushered this young man into
the call to deaconship. The installment
portion of the ordination service was led
by Bishop Bert L. Williams, Jr.

the way best suited for our nation, and it
is our fellow Bahamians who reap the re-
wards. My hope is that our students come
back to Abaco when they are finished
college and that those who remained on
Abaco after high school take this chance
to get a head start. It should be our entre-
preneurs, our nurses, our pilots and our
teachers who benefit from every advantage
our beautiful string of islands offers. It
will be our youth who become the Carib-
bean business leaders of tomorrow. There
are Bahamian companies on Abaco right
now that our students should look to as
examples of how the entrepreneurial spirit
can be applied for success. Times may be
tough now, and may be for a while, but it
is up to the rising generation to take full
advantage of our bright future.

Mr. Curry is the son of Pastor Lucian and
Mizpah Curry of Murphy Town. He has a
strong family history in this church going
back to his grandfather, Benjamin Curry,
who served the church with great distinc-
tion. Bro. Renardo Curry is a born again be-
liever having rededicated his life to the work
of God and presently serves as youth leader,
evangelistic leader, song director, preaches
the Word and is now a deacon.
During the installation, Bishop Wil-
liams stated that the call to be a deacon is

a very high standing in the house of God.
He was presented with a plaque and the
instruments of his office by his father Pas-
tor Lucian Curry.
Since this was the first deacon installa-
tion service held at the church, the other
two deacons and the treasurer were also
given their plaque and instruments of of-
fice. They were Alexander Saunders, who
has been a deacon since 1984, Denvill
Newbold, who has been a deacon since
2000, and Bro. Steve Davis, treasure.

Maxwell's Supermarket will be a state-of-the-art store

Maxwell's Supermarket is due to open soon and Abaconians will be able to shop at a well planned, bright, spacious, model store.
Nine check out counters will give excellent service and the variety of groceries and household items offered will be amazing. Owner
Chad Sawyer has had marketing experts design it making it the most modern store in The Bahamas.
