North Abaco Festival Featured Power Boats

Racing speed boats fascinated crowds on shore

Speed boats from Grand Bahama, Nassau and the United States competed and showed off their power to hundreds gathered at the
ferry landing at Treasure Cay on July 19-22 as the North Abaco Festival and Power Boat Races enjoyed its second year. More
boats, more people and more enthusiasiam characterized the festival.

By Julian Lockhart
Ozzie Dames came to put on a show,
and he definitely impressed the crowd as
he dominated the 2nd Annual North Abaco
Summer Festival and Power Boat Associa-
tion Race in his 36-foot Scarab on July 21.
Mr. Dames was just one of the representa-
tives from the Grand Bahama Powerboat
Association who made the trip over to
Treasure Cay to participate in the power
boat race as he competed in the inboard
class. Racing Gunslinger, Mr. Dames
proved to be too much for the rest of the
fleet. Despite starting after everyone else,
Mr. Dames was still able to lap everyone,
and the fans knew whom they came to see
as they cheered him on with each lap. Mr.
Dames exclaimed, "It feels great to come
over here and dominate. I did expect to
dominate and just take a look (he pointed
to his two chrome engines) and you can see
why. Everybody started in front of me and

cracks down on

illegal immigrants
By Samantha V. Evans
Abaco Immigration Department, under
the leadership of Supt. Spence Dorsett, has
initiated a number of projects to execute
the policies of the department. Recently,
they started to stage sustained pick-ups
and patrols (as much as possible) at bus
stops and boat stops to let the new illegal
immigrants know that immigration is still
here on the island. Mr. Dorsett stated that
there are a lot of new immigrants on the
island, many of whom have already joined
the workforce.
Even though the work load they have is

Goombay Park is threatened

Goombay Park, located between the freight dock in Marsh Harbour and the property of Abaco Outboards, has been a gathering
place for festivals, parites, concerts and Junkanoo celebrations for the past six years. Funding from the business community and
government has gradually improved the park. This year alone Marsh Harbour has invested more than $30,000 in improvements
to the park. These included a $20,000 donation by Baker's Bay for a roof for the stage, Hardyboard siding for the 10 stalls, and
a donation by J & J Electric for globe lighting for each hut. Recently Carib Freight has moved several of the stalls and is moving
its equipment into the park area.

F. Gottlieb is Chairman of BEC

By Mirella Santillo
On July 2nd Mr. Frederik Gottlieb was
appointed Chairman of the Bahamas Elec-
tricity Corporation by the Prime Minister,
the Rt. Hon. Hubert Ingraham. The ap-
pointment came at a time when the profit-
ability of the corporation, which had been
historically profitable, has been under-
mined for a number of different factors.
Asked what were his goals and chal-
lenges as new Chairman of BEC, Mr. Got-

tlieb stated that his goal was to continue to
fulfill the corporation's mission which is
to provide safe, reliable and cost effective
supply of electricity while generating suffi-
cient income to recover all costs including
debt service and to augment reserve funds
and self-finance a significant number of the
corporation's capital projects.

Power boats replace workboat regatta

Festival From Page 1
I was the last person to take off. I didn't
waste any time catching up and taking the
lead. You had some good boats in the com-
petition, and they all run between 85-90
miles per hour. I knew I had some good
"But you can't touch that (Gunslinger).
The association got together and decided
to come over and support this. I think they
are doing a great job because they put a
lot of time and effort into this. It may not
look like it, but it is a lot of hard work and
stress," he added.
Mr. Dames said when he passed the
crowd at the ferry dock, he was running
about 102 miles per hour each time and
on the back stretch he brakes it down.
Mr. Dames races his Scarab with twin 900
horse power inboards.

Finishing second in the inboard class
was Monkey Business and Dirty Bastard
finished third.
The outboard class was definitely a lot
closer as Go Fast Adventures was able to
just edge out Colombo at the end to win
the class and knock off last year's win-
ner. Despite trailing for the entire race, Go
Fast, a 30-foot Scarab with twin 200 horse
power Yamahas, found a way to fight back
on the last lap to win its first power boat
race. With heavy rain on the north side of
the race course close to Green Turtle Cay,
Go Fast was able to take advantage of the
inclement weather because the boat had a
windshield while the other boats in their
class didn't.
Kyle Smith, Go Fast captain, said, "Co-
lombo ran an excellent race, and they are
faster than I am. But the weather worked
in my favor. I was able to get behind my

i ,. "
The winning inboard Scarab, Gunslinger, traveled at 102 miles per hour each time it
passed the viewing stand on shore at the Treasure Cay ferry landing. The crowds cheered
him on as he passed.

The harbour at the Treasure Cay ferry landing was full of speedboats, both inboards and
outboards. The crowds admired them with their chrome engines and fancy equipment.

windshield, lock on to the GPS and push
throttle and Colombo wasn't able to do so.
They were getting beat up by the rain. I
wasn't, so I had full throttle all the way
down. I say the rain hurt those who didn't
have the windshield quite a bit. The visibil-
ity was nil at one point and I had to make
sure we didn't run up on anyone else. I
am very happy and pleased. Everyone talks
about the Go Fast boat being the slowest in
the fleet so this is a big achievement for Go
Fast Adventures," he added.
Johnny Garvey was captaining Colom-
bo, and he seemed to slow down just be-
fore they reached the finish line thinking
the race was called from the previous lap
because of the rain. However, the final lap
was the one they were currently racing and
it allowed Go Fast to slip by Colombo.
Colombo, a 30-foot Scarab with twin
250 horsepower Yamahas, led the entire
race until the last couple hundred feet. Fin-
ishing third in the outboard class was Rock-
et. The top three finishers in both classes
were from Grand Bahama.
Mr. Garvey said the first event went

really well last year and the Abaco people
came out and showed great support so they
wanted to come back and help it grow and
to have a good time. He said, "We had a
bad rain storm towards Green Turtle Cay
area and that actually gave Kyle in the an
advantage over us because they have a pro-
tective windshield. It was a good race until
the rain stopped it. As for Kyle, if it rains
like that for every race he will be in good
shape. I wasn't disappointed because it is
all about being a good sportsman and com-
ing out here participating and having fun.
That is nature and we can't do anything
about that," he added.
This was the second straight success-
ful power boat race for the North Abaco
committee and chairman of the committee,
Cliff Bootle, said it is only going to get
better in the coming years.
The support of the Grand Bahama
Powerboat Association definitely helps as
the majority of the boats are from Grand
Bahama, and they lend credibility to the

not heard a word as yet. The only docu-
ment they have is their resident card. He
explained that he would like to see some
work done on their behalf. This decision,
however, has to be granted by the Cabinet
Office and the Immigration Board. Mr.
Dorsett will be happy when this matter has
been resolved or is being addressed.
He further explained that persons who
have applied for their documents continue
to ask him for updates and he has no word
for anyone. This is one of the things that
makes his job tough. He plans to see if lead-
ers in the Haitian communities can get a list
with the dates and times when these persons
applied for their documents so that he can
get some update for them on their request.
He stated that some parents applied for per-
manent residency nine to 10 years ago and
their children are now 19, 20 and older.
He explained that the newcomers are the

from other islands including Nassau to Ab-
aco because they know that the economy is
booming here. Immigration officers regu-

New BEC Chairman outlines his goals

Gottlieb From Page 1

"One of the challenges of the board
which I have been given the honor and the
privilege to chair by the Prime Minister
will be to address the reasons and the fac-
tors resulting in the corporation ceasing to
be profitable and turn it around by making
it profitable once again while minimizing
the impact of the cost of electricity to the
corporation's customers."
Consumers on Abaco have been com-
plaining for the last few years of inadequate
billing and continuous power outages in the
summer. What is the Chairman's position
concerning the island? "As far as Abaco is
concerned," explained Mr. Gottlieb, "the
immediate challenge is to put in place a new
generating plant which will be sufficient to
take care of the present demand, now and
for years to come." He mentioned that a
site has not yet been definitely chosen.
"At the present time," he said, "there are
controversies regarding the site for a new
plant; we are attempting to resolve issues
as quickly as possible. In any event," he
assured, "it is my intention and the board's

to have the
new plant up
and running
by the end of
2008. In the
meantime," '
he contin-
ued, "every
effort will *
be made to Frederik Gottlieb
ensure that then, BEC
present demand
is met and that the number of power out-
ages is substantially reduced."
"I have also instructed BEC's manage-
ment on Abaco," said Mr. Gottlieb, "to
immediately set about getting all street
lights in all the settlements of the island in
working order."
Long term plans address the ever ris-
ing price of fuel that Mr. Gottlieb thinks
will continue to rise. "It is likely," he said,
"that in years to come some countries like
The Bahamas will find it increasingly diffi-
cult to obtain sufficient oil at economically
viable prices. The board is therefore ana-
lyzing the possibility of establishing alter-
native sources of energy, particularly solar

energy, with a view of making The Baha-
mas self sufficient as far as energy require-
ments are concerned," said the Chairman.
"It would be irresponsible in my view not
to begin the process of investigating and
determining suitable alternative sources of
energy for The Bahamas."
As whether the present management on
Abaco would stay in place, Mr. Gottlieb
said he was not able to comment at this
time but that "the matter and other issues
are being reviewed."
The first meeting of the new Board took
place on July 12th and from then on, the
new Chairman will have to travel to Nas-
sau every week. "It is a big challenge to

do it while running my law office," he
said, "but I did it before. I was Chair-
man of Water and Sewerage and did the
upgrade of the water facilities on Abaco.
While chairing the Bahamas Development
Bank, I was able to achieve positive results
in having the Bank make a greater propor-
tion of loans to the Family Islands. Baha-
masAir, however, was the greatest chal-
lenge," reminisced Mr. Gottlieb.
He concluded by saying, "With the as-
sistance of the Board and the government
and the cooperation of the management and
the employees of BEC, many of the chal-
lenges will be successfully met."

Flagler College will assist entrepreneurs

By Mirella Santillo
Four members of staff and one student
from Flagler College in St. Augustine,
Florida, visited Abaco at the invitation of
Mr. Don Cornish, Director of the local
Tourism Office, to discuss free enterprise
and economic enhancement possibilities.
The visitors met with arts and crafts people
in Marsh Harbour during the afternoon of
July 9th and made a presentation to a few
residents in the evening of the same day.
The purpose of their visit was to assess the
community as far as business possibilities
were concerned and to explain to the au-
dience the various success stories brought
about with the help of the college.
Ms. Samantha Peacock, a former stu-
dent of Flagler College who started by
helping there, has now been employed for
five year by the institution. As Manager of
Retail Operations, she presently runs the
Historical Tour, which started as a part
time endeavor in 1998. In 2002 it became
a year around operation, receiving 35,000
visitors yearly. The Legacy Book Store,
located in 1200 square feet of space, was
created to financially support the Histori-
cal Tour, which is free. The book store
was created by students and is operated by
students who, in the process, learn first
hand, how to operate a retail business. She
explained that many students of the col-
lege stayed on as employees after gradu-
ating, some becoming involved in the Ju-
nior Partners Program where participating
students become job interns getting paid
while continuing to learn.
Mr. Barry Sand, Retired Professor of
Communication, mentioned their creating
the West Side Market in a poor area of St
Augustine to help revive it economically.
The market which involved the participa-

tion of the area's residents soon became
a popular destination. Every Saturday
people patronize the market which offers
mostly "soul food." The people producing
the food started to get more affluent, using
their money to give the area a face lift.
According to the presenters, the Market
is still very popular and some of the resi-
dents are now in business for themselves
full time.
Another of their programs is the Kids'
Market Place where kids come once a year
for one day to conduct business on their
own. Tables are available for them to rent
for the day which they can pay for, af-
ter they have sold their goods. "It teaches
them how to price, to trade, to barter and
be responsible," explained Ms. De Loren-
zo, Executive Director of College Rela-
Ms. DeLorenzo summed up the purpose
of the visit to Abaco as follows: look at the
potential for Abaco so residents can create

bigger businesses, to help people with tal-
ent channel their talent towards financial
goals and finally to look at the economic
development going on and train residents
to get the first opportunity at jobs. Among
other things, she suggested creating a web
site and opening a Saturday market.
Ms. DeLorenzo said that the college
would be looking at a grant to finance their
involvement in helping the island with the
above mentioned goals. The college also
supports a student's exchange program
with The Bahamas with a scholarship of

$12,000 to help a Bahamian student attend
Flagler College for one year. They are
hoping to have a student going to St Au-
gustine by September 1st. Before return-
ing home on July 12th, the group visited
Man-O-War and Green Turtle Cay.
Mr. Barry Sand, Ms. Dona DeLorenzo,
(accompanied by Mr. Alvin Rubinstein),
Ms. Samantha Peacock, members of the
staff of the Flagler College in St Augus-
tine, Florida, and Ms. Stephanie Slankard,
a student.

Several staff members from Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, visited Abaco with
the goal of assessing the area with the idea of assisting local people in opening business-
es. They had meetings with people interested in making hand crafted items for marketing.
51,' 1 here are Mr. Don Cornish, Abaco's Tourism Director; Mrs. Susan Sawyer and
Mrs. Tiffany Turnquest, both artisans, Donna DeLorenzo and Mr. Barry Sand, both from
Flagler College, and Mr. Larry Rolle, artisan; in front are Ms. Stephanie Slankard, a
student at the college, and Ms. Samantha Peacock, also from Flagler College.

New Methodist Handbook

Vacation Bible School
Thirteen members from the Cyprus
Lake United Methodist Church in Ft. My-
ers, Florida, came once again to Abaco to
have vacation Bible study classes with our
young people. They were here last year
around this same time. They spent three
days working with our little ones as well
as spending a full week with the youth of
St. Andrews Methodist Church in Marsh
Harbour. The children loved the interac-
tion and the fun they experienced, and the
visitors got to spend a little time in our
beautiful Bahamas.
In addition, the members of the church's
praise team donated a computerized video
player, Power Ppoint set-up and portable
viewing screen for use at Epwoth Cha-
pel, and we understand they gave a simi-
lar set-up to the St. Andrews Church. On
Thursday evening they showed a movie to
demonstrate the machine's capabilities and
organized a cook-out with all the fixin's
which they brought along with them. Af-
terward everyone had chowed down on
grilled hot dogs, chips, cookies and drinks,
we were all ready to settle down to a good
movie. No one was disappointed.

We want to thank Rob Liddle and his
Praise Team from Cyprus Lakes United
Methodist Church for their time as well as
their kind gift, which I'm sure will be put

Handbook is released
Rev. Charles A. Sweeting and Rev. Bill
Higgs, two well known Bahamian theo-
logians, have co-authored a new 76-page
booklet entitled Warmed Hearts Renewed
outlining Methodism from the Bahamas
Conference of the Methodist Church or
from a Bahamian perspective. The title is
derived from the "heartwarming" experi-
ence by the Wesley brothers in the early
This is a resource book on information
and/or specific topics and is for the train-
ing and preparation of membership in the
BCMC. It outlines "doctrine" on which
we should seek guidance from Holy Scrip-
ture allowing God's Spirit to "write on our
hearts" and is recommended to its follow-
ers by two highly respected and well loved
leaders of the church.
The booklet outlines everything from

the duties of being a Methodist to the his-
tory of how John Wesley and his brother,
Charles, joined the Holy Club while they
were at university and devoted themselves
to prayer and study. They drew up detailed
schedules to live by and were jeered for
being "method-ist." From 1760 to 1780
Methodists left England to make a new life
for themselves in American and the colo-
nies and they brought their faith with them
to the Bahamas.
It is a well written, easily understand-
able book and a must read for newly found
Methodists as well as the old faithful.

Growth and local decisions

Central Abaco has a new Administra-
tor, Cephus Cooper, who has begun work
by immersing himself in community is-
sues. He grew up in Cooper's Town and
served as principal of Abaco Central High
School 10 years ago. His training and vari-
ous postings as a commissioner and subse-
quently as an administrator have taken him
to many Family Islands. He should be well
equipped to guide the governmental side of
Abaco's growth.
Understanding Nassau's rule book is
important but local issues do not always
fit into neat categories ready for precon-
ceived solutions to be applied. Like a good
shepherd, the administrator is charged to
guide those exercising their local govern-
ment authority.
Local government is just that - local
people solving local problems.
Those elected and appointed to local
government positions are generally re-
sponsible for looking after community
housekeeping. Local government is given
an annual budget and a loose rule book for
The administrator is much like a ref-
eree at a sporting event, letting the play-
ers make the moves to accomplish their
goal while ensuing that they play by the
rules. Like Roman gladiators whose fate
often was determined by the masses in the
stands, every three years the fate of local
government persons is in the hands of the
community they serve.
Administrators occasionally walk a fine
line as they steer a course dictated by Nas-
sau while letting local government go its
own way. A good shepherd works to keep
his sheep in green pastures and out of prob-
lem areas.
Local government makes decisions on
local issues, approving appropriate build-
ing construction, issuing business licenses
and making other local decisions. At what
point do local issues move beyond the local
decision-making process?
As communities grow, the decision pro-
cess gets more complicated. Communities
are relatively easy to manage when they
are isolated and not showing growth symp-
toms. Communities which have large sea-

sonal changes in populations or which are
fast growing present more frequent chal-
lenges to those in leadership roles.
Years ago central government concluded
that Abaco's growth was being stifled by a
lack of affordable building lots and Cen-
tral Pines subdivision was established. The
financing and accompanying civil works
were beyond local capabilities. However,
once established with roads and utilities,
then local government assumed the day-by-
day management of the area.
The Marsh Harbour port is another ex-
ample of central government recognizing
the area growth and making provision for
expanded freight facilities. In this case,
there was a lot of local input sought before
the project began.
Our airport expansion is another ex-
ample of central government exercising its
expertise and financial capabilities. At one
point, Nassau experts said the airport would
be closed for 8 to 10 weeks while improve-
ments were made. Nassau got more local
input than they bargained for on that issue
as Abaco people were not about to let Nas-
sau close their airport. Word soon came
that other avenues were being explored.

Local input can influence major projects.
Marsh Harbour's traffic and parking
problems are moving beyond the ability
of locally contrived solutions. Resolving
these issues will take the combined effort
of central and local government persons.
In fact, in this case, the business commu-
nity may play a role also.
Local people want to maintain local con-
trol but area growth and the magnitude of
the problems which growth presents may
have implications beyond local capabili-
ties. Major resort development would be
an example. Those in the immediate vicin-
ity may want the area to remain as it was.
But those outside the immediate area see
job and career opportunities.
Should local authority extend to pass fi-
nal judgement on major projects - probably
not. Should local interests be consulted and
local contact maintained during the con-
struction of major projects - definitely.
Garbage dumps, well fields, power plant
expansion and expanding subdivisions are
facts of life that must be acknowledged and
dealt with. But remote experts must not be
empowered to put thumbtacks on choice
locations on a map and send in the bull-

Local government must be helped to
understand its role in the development and
growth process. Then they must use what
little authority they have to nudge future
development or influence those approving
those developments in acceptable direc-
Our administrators must help guide our
local government leaders through the de-
cision-making process. Nassau has an ex-
tensive and cumbersome civil service that
provides and manages the greater services
needed by communities. At the community
level our elected and appointed leaders
provide many of these civil service func-
Yet, every three years many of our local
leaders are swept out of office and a new
group begins again. Even our administra-
tors are subject to the whims of their civil
servant bosses and may be reassigned.
Administrator Cooper has begun with
a running start, meeting and guiding lo-
cal councils and town committees. You
can expect to hear more of him and of our
local government in future issues of this

Racism in 2007
Dear Editor,
Welcome to Marsh Harbour, Abaco!
This island is full of sun, fun, sea and
friends. It's a great place to party and
spend quality time with family and friends.
But it is so unfortunate that we are still
subjected to racism as well! Are you sur-
prised? I was! I relay this story to you with
such sorrow in my heart.
I am a 20-something Caucasian Baha-
mian (born and bred) and was shocked to
find out that racism is still such a large part
of the culture in our beautiful Bahamaland!
My story is as follows:
I was at work on a Wednesday afternoon
when my phone rang. The conversation
was going well until the information that
I gave out was not what the person on the
other line wanted to hear. They proceeded
to call me "a dumb white girl" and said
that they needed to speak to someone with
some common sense! I was appalled at the
venomous voice on the other end, set aside
from the pure shock that I felt! 1 explained
that I was the only person in the office at
the present time and let him know that
the racial comments were not necessary.
He continued to go on until I hung up the
phone in total dismay.
An hour later, I left the office for lunch.
I walked into a local establishment to place
an order. I was at the counter when a wom-
an came in the door, completely ignored
me and started to place her order next to

me. The lady behind the counter nicely told
her that I was in line first, and she would
have to wait her turn. Then, with complete
disgust, the woman looked at me, turned
her head and said "You think I checking' for
her? Does she look like she even belong in
here?" I looked at her in total disbelief! I
couldn't believe that in less than two hours
I had been a victim of racism twice in my
own country! I said nothing my heart was
so heavy and saddened by both incidents
I could hardly speak. I went back to my
office where I thought long and hard about
what had happened. I actually spent an
entire week pondering over what was the
cause of racial discrimination in this day
and time and have yet to come up with an
The following Tuesday I was beginning
to think that it was just a coincidence that
it had happened to me twice in less than
two hours. I began to feel like maybe it
was just a "fluke" and everyone was just
having a bad day. I left work again that
day for lunch feeling a little better. I went
to another local business to order lunch as 1
do most days. I went to the counter and be-
gan placing my order. There was another
gentleman in there that had obviously al-
ready placed his order with his lunch ticket
in hand. He was apparently being a bother
to the girl at the counter and she was TRY-
ING to ignore him. When he wouldn't let
up, she explained that she had a customer
and motioned to my direction. The annoy-
ing jerk looked me in my face and said
"Well, maybe if I was a white girl, I'd get
some service too!" WELL, THAT WAS
IT! I told him that being white in this com-
monwealth had NO advantages at all be-
cause we are the minority anyway! Then I
turned and walked out.
Abaco, open your eyes! We are in 2007!
I can't help that my forefathers were slave
masters - the same as black Bahamians
can't help that THEIR forefathers sold their
own people to the slave masters! And nor
should ANY of us have to apologize for it
now. I am not a discriminatory person in
any way shape or form - and never have
been. But I refuse to be a victim of this on
my own island! We have to live day to day
with each other. Why should we purposely
make it difficult? I have children and I hate
to know that this is the environment that
they should have to grow up in. I will raise
my sons and daughters better than that and

I hope you will, too! Be proud of who you
are and where you come from - but DON'T
be a RACIST!
Please Note: My ONLY purpose of
writing this letter so publicly is to raise
awareness and beg people to put it behind
them - not start a war. But responses are

Thanks for allowing
me to serve
Thank you to the communities of Aba-
coTo the communities of Abaco: I write to
you to say thank you for your total support
during my tenure as Principal of the Great
Abaco Central High School. It is not by
choice that I am being transferred; how-
ever, as a civil servant I must answer the
call of my superiors. I think it only appro-
priate that I say good bye and say thank
you to the people of Abaco for accepting
me and supporting me during my time here
on this Island:
Especially, the Ralphs and the staff of
The Abaconian newspaper and Mr. Silbert
Mills and the staff of Radio Abaco. These
media personnel have done a wonderful job
in helping us to maintain a positive image
of the school in the Abaco communities
and throughout the Bahamas. Also, to all
the government agencies and private busi-
nesses on the island that assisted the school
readily this year, I say thank you.
When I arrived at the Great Abaco Cen-
tral High School in August 2006 I meant
a fine group of hardworking teachers and
support staff. We have some of the most
talented teachers, secretary and other sup-
port staff members right at the Great Abaco
Central High School. To my administra-
tive team, I appreciate your total support.
I would like to say to all of you thank you
for your hard work over the year.
The Great Abaco Central High School
has made great strides this 2006/2007
school year under my leadership. I would
take this time to give you all a report on
our accomplishments. We were able to in-
stall a new bell system in the school to bet-
ter facilitate the movement of our students
to their various class periods and breaks.
We constructed a new security booth at
the entrance of the school to monitor the

movement of cars and people on and off
our campus.
My philosophy is that every person on
the Great Abaco Central High School cam-
pus has a right to be safe and feel safe.
With that in mind we have built a no tol-
erance attitude towards any misconduct in
the school. We created a close relationship
with our local Marsh Harbour police and it
is working wonderfully. Our school is for
serious learners only. This year we have
improved the physical environment of the
school tremendously. The yard is kept
clean and well manicured and the build-
ings are nicely painted and kept free of any
graffiti. We have even taken on the task of
maintaining the Murphy Town Park next
to us. We are a community-minded school.
We have also improved the conditions of
most of the classrooms.
We have reopened the school's library,
air conditioned it and re-named it the Rob-
ert Van Stratton Library, who was the PTA
president in 1989 when the library was
built. We have installed cable television in
the school, a fax machine and high speed
internet for better communication. The
students can now do research from books
in the library or on the internet. This year
we acquired teachers for all of our subject
areas; we were fully staffed. This year our
students got the full benefit out of their
educational experience.
We have leased out our tuck shop which
resulted in better products for our students,
job creation for persons in the community
and a better profit for the school. We have
organized our first annual school fair and
raffle this year to help with revenue for the
school and give the community a family-
oriented recreational activity to look for-
ward to each year. The fair went beyond
our expectations; it was a resounding suc-
We have created programs in the school
such as our literacy program to improve
the reading level of our students and help
slow learners; we have incentive programs
for our students such as It's Academic with
the Social Science Department, various in-
school clubs to create a social atmosphere
and compliment the classroom learning
of our students. We have looked at all of
our schemes of work to see how best we

can align
them with
our national i f
exams BJC
We hope for
results with
these na-
tional exams Mr. Kendris Hield
as the school
years progress.
Our school has won many local and in-
ternational competitions this year. Some of
them include debating competitions, aca-
demic competitions i.e. Spanish and reli-
gious studies, leadership competitions and
more. Our sporting programs at the school
have improved tremendously this year. We
hosted the inter-school sports this year at
Murphy Town Park. The reviews are that
it was the best inter-school sports in the
history of inter-school sports on the island.
Eight schools participated, both private
and public; the Great Abaco Central High
School fell to second place during the in-
ter-school sports meet to rival S.C. Boo-
tle. However, statistically our school did
better. We will be the champions for the
2007/2008 interschool sports meet. I am
proud to announce that the Great Abaco
Central High School is the undefeated, un-
disputable Champions of the 2006 Junior
Junkanoo parade and have successfully de-
fended this title for over five years. We are
number one!
Our agricultural program was improved
this year; we are proud to say that we were
able to grow and slaughter 150 chickens. I
must add that our chickens were far supe-
rior in size and quality of meat compared
to any chickens you can find in food stores;
thank you to Abaco Big Bird Farms for
your support and donations of chicks and
food and to Mr. Knowles of BEC for your
support of our agricultural program.
The Great Abaco Central High is quick-
ly becoming the Educational Mecca of
Abaco. Our school houses Pitman classes,
College of The Bahamas Classes, self de-
velopment classes and our most recent his-
torical development here on Abaco; Baha-
mas Technical Vocational Institute classes.
Our students, parents, aunts, uncles, cous-
ins, grandmothers and anyone else who

Abaco Central High School. We hope to
offer more educational programs such as

try, Academic Science, Business Studies,
Commercial Arts, Academic Arts, Hotel
Hospitality, Marine Biology and more to
our students. It only takes a spark to get a
fire going and we at the Great Abaco Cen-
tral High School hope to flood the commu-
nity of Abaco with a spirit of educational
We are a community-minded school!
We were able to establish a Parent
Teachers Association board. Parents, I
want to just take a minute and tell you how
important it is for you to be involved in
the school. I was very disappointed with
our parental involvement this year. We are
a school with over 500 students, and we
had an average of seven parents attending
our PTA meetings. Parents, please for the
year 2007/2008 I implore you to please
become more involved in your children's
educational experience. The Great Abaco
Central High School has a culture of love,
respect, loyalty, pride and goodwill among
the staff and students. In every family there
will be some disagreements at times; how-
ever, throughout my career I have worked
in five schools in this educational system
and have yet to experience a finer bunch
of people. Our students and staff are won-
derful and I feel that the positive image of
the Great Abaco Central High School has
prevailed this school year.
Again, thank you to The Abaconian,
Radio Abaco and other media personnel
and persons who have helped us by keep-
ing a positive image of the school in the
communities. We are a school built by the

community and for the community.
As I make my exit from this island and
as Principal of the Great Abaco Central
High School, I would like to leave a word
of encouragement to you, the communities
of Abaco, and to especially the students
and staff of the Great Abaco Central High
School. You must continue to persevere
as you sail through this world of many
seasons. You will have your rough seas;
however, there is always a great calm af-
ter the storm. You will have your critics;
however, criticisms are for your growth.
You will have your stumbling blocks; how-
ever, stumbling blocks are stepping stones
to higher heights. Believe that you are and
you shall be; hold onto that which is dear
to you; find your purpose and you will find
contentment and finally; never pass up a
chance to make a positive difference in the
lives of your fellow man.
I have served you all with God's help
to the best of my ability; I am satisfied to
know that I have done my best as Principal
of the Great Abaco Central High School
and as a member of the Abaco communi-
God bless! I Love You All!

New real estate
office opens
By Jennifer Hudson
Mr. Perry Thomas announced the
opening of Adler Realty Ltd's office in
Marsh Harbour at a cocktail reception
on the office grounds on July 12. Bank-
ers, lawyers and other realtors were
invited to meet with Mr. Thomas, his
business partner and staff, view the of-
fice and learn more about the company's
Mr. Thomas is now a real estate con-
sultant with Adler Realty Ltd. which
specialises in real estate sales, rentals
and appraisals and which has served
The Bahamas for over 19 years from its
Nassau office. Mr. Thomas has joined
with Broker/President, Mr. Osbourne

Stuart, to open the Marsh Harbour of-
fice situated upstairs in the Sea Star
building next to Maxwell's Supermar-
ket. The office actually began operating
here in Marsh Harbour on May 14 and
offers great home and property selec-
tions, affordable rentals and the ability
to pre-qualify persons for a mortgage.
"Our aim is to get you through the pro-
cess with the least amount of obstacles"
is the company's goal.
Mr. Thomas is a well known busi-
nessman and entrepreneur having held
several positions within the local com-
munity over the years. Since the incep-
tion of the Baker's Bay development
on Guana Cay, he holds the position of
Head Captain of the company's ship,
the Discovery. "This is a full time posi-
tion with the Discovery Land Company

and my number one loyalty is to them.
But since the hours when my services
are needed are very flexible, I am also
able to take on this post as realtor," he
explained. He has been a licensed real-
tor since 1997 and has worked in the
office of several agents on Abaco. "I
am looking forward to providing low
cost homes, finding the properties and
then qualifying the people. I also look
forward to later actually financing the
building of homes on property near
Treasure Cay," he stated.
Mr. Thomas's partner is Mr. Os-
bourne Stuart, who has been a realtor
for 19 years in Nassau. Mr. Stuart hails
from Moore's Island and was formerly
a teacher at the Abaco Central High
School; in fact, Kevie, the wife of Perry
Thomas, was one of his students.
Two years ago Mr. Stuart decided
that he would like to return to Abaco
and began seeking someone with whom
he could team up to go into the real es-
tate business. "We want to put some
things back into the community, too,"
stated Mr. Stuart. "I see a very bright

future for Abaco; there is an excitement
and an energy here which you don't see
on any other island. There is an eco-
nomic energy and I see Abaco moving
forward. I already have a list of clients
waiting for land on Abaco." Mr. Stuart
will be working on Abaco one day each
week and hopes to move himself and his
family over to reside here permanently
within the next two years.
The office in Marsh Harbour will be
directly connected to the office in Nas-
sau so that their entire data base can be
accessed immediately. They have refer-
ral agents on San Salvador, Eleuthera
and Exuma but Abaco is the only Fam-
ily Island on which Adler Realty has an
office presence outside of Nassau.
In addition to Mr. Thomas and Mr.
Stuart, other staff include Dayneth Tay-
lor, secretary in the Marsh Harbour of-
fice; Don Cornish, appraiser for Abaco;
and Charmaine Glinton, Manager of the
Nassau office.

Central Pines
gets cable
By Samantha V. Evans
On July 19th the Central Pines Associa-
tion held a meeting at the Central Abaco
Primary School to further allow residents
of the sub-division to sign up for Cable Ba-
hamas service. Ms. Bernadette Hall stated
that this is the final stage in their cable
saga, and she is elated that everyone now
can sign up and receive cable service. To
assist with this final process, Hida Ingra-
ham-Kempski, a sales representative from
the Freeport Cable Bahamas office, came
to facilitate this process. She was also
available on Friday for persons wanting
to sign up for first time service and those

from the cays who needed assistance with
their service.
Ms. Kempski explained that any glitches
that some persons were experiencing have
since been addressed. Everyone has great
reception and has the same access to cable
service as residents in other parts of the
island. Anyone moving into the area can
call the Freeport office directly and can be
signed up over the phone. It is her hope
that a toll free number will be made avail-
able for Abaco residents to call Freeport
directly. She is also hoping that a location
will be found soon so that an office can be
established on the island permanently. Un-
til then, she will do her best to properly as-
sist Abaconians. To date, all Central Pines
residents are able to receive Cable Service
without delay.

Revie Fox Opens Office
for his Businesses
By Samant vans
The new extension of Abaco Shopping
Centr e is now the home of Revie Fox's
businesses: Revie's Pest Control, Island
Design and Homebuilders and Heavy
Equipment Business. Mr. Fox is a very am-
bitious man and opened his first business,
Revie's Pest Control in 1999. He special-
izes in extermination of foundations, lawn
care (spraying), control of insects inside
and outside, and rodent control in homes
and businesses. He now sells chemicals
that can eliminate and control rodents and
insects. He also seals holes and cracks
where rats can enter a home and can seal
areas in the yard as well. He tries to in-
struct owners on how to keep their homes
and businesses free of rodents and insects.
He treats subterranean termites as well as
fliers. Since it is the rainy session now,
most persons will begin to see termites
around this time.
Island Design and Homebuilders Con-
struction business was opened in 2002. Mr.

Fox specializes in residential and commer-
cial construction. At the end of December,
he is looking to offer financial assistance
to anyone looking to build. He believes in
giving quality service at a reasonable price.
interior decoration can also be provided
by those needing the service.
Mr. Fox's heavy equipment business
works hand in hand with the construction
business. He is presently upgrading this
part of the business and it will be fully op-
erational by October. The services to be
provided are: rock, sand and fill trucking
services, back hoeing, land clearing and

Era Dupuch Real
Estate Expands
Citing growth in interest in Family Is-
land property, ERA Dupuch Real Estate
this week announced the appointment of
additional BREA-licensed sales associates
in several Family Islands.
"We are pleased to announce the expan-
sion of ERA Dupuch Real Estate in Span-
ish Wells, Eleuthera, Hope Town, Abaco
and Exuma and Long Island," said Peter
Dupuch, founder of the company. The
move to boost Family Island coverage be-
gan last year when it opened its first Abaco
office. That office, staffed by Donna and
James Rees, is in the Stratton Building in

A straw stall showed up at Crossing Beach on the night of July 9 and was open for busi-
ness selling straw goods the next morning. However, the Marsh Harbour Town Com-
mittee had previously made it clear that there will be no booths or stalls selling food or
souvenirs in the area. There is so much traffic confusion there that they do not want to
increase the traffic or chaos by allowing businesses to set up shop. The stall was removed
several days later. Albury's Ferry Service obtained a lease from Crown Lands many years
ago to build their office. R , cial Abaco Ferry constructed an office to accommodate
their passengers. The traffic and parking situation in the area is a major problem facing
the town and continues to become worse as the Central Abaco economy grows .

Marsh Har-
bour. Recent
include a
third Abaco
tive, Ricky
Sweeting, for
Hope Town.
While the
real estate Ricky Sweeting
market in Nassau and Paradise Island has
been strong, the real change in the industry
is the explosion of interest in the Family
Islands," said Mr. Dupuch. Much of the
interest, he noted, is among Bahamians.
In each case where ERA Dupuch added
an agent, the firm identified a Bahamian
who had not only earned a BREA license,
but had strong community ties and thor-
ough knowledge of local settlements, prop-
erties and market trends.
"It's a common thread throughout the
islands," explains Dupuch, "to add real
estate as a profession to a list of earlier
accomplishments. It makes sense because
the person has built a reputation, is trusted
in the community, knows the product. We
hope with associates nearly from one end
of the archipelago to the other, we will be
in the best position to serve clients whether
they want beachfront on Eleuthera or farm
land on Long Island."
Scotia Bank welcomes
a new manager
By Samantha V. Evans
Scotia bank employees welcomed their
new manager, Mr. Matthew Sawyer, to
Abaco on June 26th. He was touched by
the warmth displayed towards him by his

new staff. He realizes that Scotia Back has
a good name on the island because all of
his predecessors did an excellent job keep-
ing customers and staff happy. He plans to
continue with that positive trend.
Mr. Sawyer stated that his career in
banking began due to his love of numbers.
He worked first for a while in the field
of accounting , then decided to switch to
banking and finance which he pursued at
The College of the Bahamas. He receives a
lot of satisfaction from his career because
he is able to see lives transformed by the
assistance given. It brings him much joy
to see people getting their first car, house
mortgage, or start up money for a busi-
In 1989 he began working at Barclay's
Bank. He went to work for Scotia Bank in
1995 as a Loan Officer and later moved to
the Mortgage Center. He was promoted to
Assistant Manager and served as Assistant
Manager of the Credit and Small Business
Unit at the Scotia Branch on Freeport.
Mr. Sawyer is excited to be at the Abaco
branch and will do all he can to strengthen
the service this branch brings to the public.
He enjoys working with Scotia Bank be-
cause it offers its employees cross service
training; it makes the staff comfortable
because they get to work in their area of
interest. The employees of this branch are
very motivated due to the number of initia-
tives and incentives offered by the bank.
Scotia bank has a family environment and
they focus on team work and extending this
family atmosphere to their customers.
There are a number of incentives in place

Summer Festival
was great
By Vernique Russell
The 2nd Annual North Abaco Summer
Festival and Power Boat Race staged a suc-
cessful festival weekend during July 19-22.
The events that took place at the ferry land-
ing site in Treasure Cay brought together
families and friends from near and far. As
a three-fold event (family reunion, home-
coming and festival), it proved to be the
biggest, most organized and popular one
to be hosted by North Abaco. The organiz-
ers have proven that with unity anything is
Last year a committee organized the
first North Abaco Summer Festival and
Power Boat Race which proved to be very
successful. It was at that time when com-


mittee chairman, Clifton Bootle, promised
that this year's event would be bigger and
better. Like promised, it was delivered as
this year the event lasted four days instead
of three. There were fashion shows, a cul-
tural explosion and entertainment during
the first two nights. It was on Saturday and
Sunday when the crowd received treats
that has created high anticipation for the
third festival and power boat race. After
a fun-filled day of racing on Saturday, the
committee invited everyone back out on
Sunday as they ended in grand style with
a boat exhibition by boats from the Florida
Boating Association that were on Abaco
for a magazine shoot. The crowd watched
in awe as the beautifully designed boats put
on a mini show just showing off the power
they process.
Next year the committee will host the

U'_ x ,.

The Treasure Cay ferry landing was filled with happy crowds to watch the power boat
races and enjoy a festival with lots of Bahmian foods, drink and music. This was the sec-
ond year that North Abaco has organized a festival and power boat race to replace the
Bahamian sloop racing that was held therefore many years.

3rd Annual North Abaco Summer Festival
and Power Boat Race that will once again
be bigger and better. The committee thanks
everyone who made this year's event a
great success. We look forward to seeing
you next year!
Congratulations to the committee for a
job well done. You staged another unfor-
gettable and successful weekend of fun, fun
and fun, that was beneficial to the general
public, the business community and placed
many smiles on the persons. We are look-
ing forward to next year and encourage
you to keep up the good work as you strive
to make this the best festival the Bahamas
has ever seen.
Happy Emancipation
By Vernique Russell
Freedom, freedom, freedom! It is that
time of year when we celebrate the freeing
of our forefathers who were slaves many,
many years ago. Although there are still
many persons in The Bahamas that only
see this day as another holiday from work,
this year let us make an effort to celebrate
what Emancipation Day or August Monday
really means. Forget about the holiday and
reflect on the great fight and struggle our
forefathers endured for us to live the lives
we now live. This year search yourself and
see if your life shows appreciation for the
freedom we now have. Ask yourself "Are
you still bound by chains mentally?" or
"Have you really freed yourself mentally,
physically and spiritually?" As our nation
reflects on the day that changed our way
of life forever, please examine yourself
and see what changes you must make to

walk into your freedom and let's move for-
ward, upward and onward together. Happy
Emancipation (August Monday), Abaco!

Summer school is offered
By Vernique Russell
Sherlin C. Bootle High School, in con-
junction with the Ministry of Education, re-

skills. From July 11th -28th students gath-
ered at the high school campus in Cooper's
Town from 9 a.m. tol p.m. for classes.
Classes were offered for both grades 8
andlO. This presented a challenge for the
two instructors; however, their hard work
and dedication brought them through it.
Summer School 2007 was a success.

Church News
By Vernique Russell
Pastor Bridgette Mills along with mem-
bers of Cities of Refuge Ministries in Trea-
sure Cay hosted five nights of revival ser-

vices. The guest speaker was Prophetess
Lydia Brice of Nassau. For the duration
of the services people came from near and
far to hear what the Lord is saying to the
church for today. One message that rang
loud and clear throughout the services
was that it is clean up time in the body of
Christ! The message brought warning, en-
couragement and hope to all who were a
part of this great revival.
Light of the World Ministries
Vacation Bible School
By Vernique Russell
Light of the World Mission Ministries
from Nassau has been having Vacation
Bible School on Abaco for the last eight
years and this year was no exception. From
Treasure Cay to Crown Haven inclusive of
Green Turtle Cay children of all ages could
learn about Jesus and the Bible through
teaching, crafts and games with no admis-
sion charged. Over 250 students attended
from the various settlements. At the same
time there were summer school programs
at the primary schools and the high school
in North Abaco. The police summer pro-
gram numbers were down. However, next

year the Mission Team is intent to team up
with the police youth summer program.
Venues for the Bible Schools included
the Anglican churches at Treasure Cay,
Green Turtle Cay, Blackwood and Crown
Haven, Zion Baptist at Fox Town, St. An-
drews at Fire Road, the Baptist churches in
Cedar Harbour and Wood Cay, the Coo-
per's Town Primary School and New Hope
Baptist at Mount Hope.
Light of the World Ministry has been
in operation for 46 years and the found-
ers are Pastor Edison and Madge Roberts.
This ministry offers Vacation Bible School
on six Family Islands annually. It is a non-

profit and non-denominational program that
relies strictly on God to make provision for
the Good News to be spread. Teachers vol-
unteer their times and come from all over
the Bahamas to work along with Pastor
Edison and Mrs. Roberts. They are only
required to meet two criteria; 1) they must
be born again believers and 2) they must
purchase their own ticket if traveling to
another island. Everything else is provid-
ed by the Mission ministry. The program
reaches over 2,000 kids yearly on Abaco,

Will there be a
work boat regatta?
By Vernique Russell
In 2006 when the All Abaco Regatta
committee decided to move the event
from its historic site in Treasure Cay to

The stalls at the Treasure Cay ferry landing offered a variety of foods and drink. The
festival was a great time of socializing and renewing friendhsip -i /,it watching the races
and participating in the games and activities offered.

a site in Central Abaco, it seemed that
the event fell apart. As a result the All
Abaco Regatta was cancelled. Committee
members while on Radio Abaco last year
told the public that it would be hosted this
year in July. However, July is gone and
the question of Abaco hosting this regatta
and where is still uncertain.
The All Abaco Regatta from its incep-
tion at its original site in Treasure Cay
was been a very successful event. It
brought together the entire sloop-sailing
association in the Bahamas bringing the
islands to come together as one big happy
family. It played a vital role in the econo-
my on Abaco as it was normally held dur-
ing the off season allowing hotels and car
rentals to be patronized through domestic
tourists. However, despite all of this, the
committee still saw a need to move the
regatta away from its historic site.
Though that decision proved to be un-
successful, the question still remains: will
the event return, not to North Abaco but
to Abaco at large? Besides the poor rea-
sons that were given on Radio Abaco for
the committee decision to move the re-
gatta, will the committee be able to host
another regatta at a site of their choice or
has the regatta packed its bags and said
good-bye to Abaco for good. For many
years islands such as Exuma, Eleuthera,
Long Island and others have successfully
staged their regattas at the same site be-
cause the regatta site is a land mark and
historic site. Why must Abaco be differ-
The question is still lingering and re-
quires an answer to the question: Will
there be an All Abaco Regatta ever again
on Abaco?

Cliff Bootle said, "We are very happy
with the success and we don't think it can
turn out any better. It was the same as last
year. We sat down and worked it out with
them (Grand Bahama Powerboat Associa-
tion) and we got them together with us. This
has grown tremendously from last year,
and they even had more people join their
club after last year. I think the next level
right now is that I would like to see more

Local writer to publish second edition of book

By W.D. Smith
Martha Hanna Smith's book Bush
Medicine in Bahamian Folk Tradition has
been in publication for over a year now.
If anyone thinks that the excitement has
ceased since the release of her interest-
ing book, they would most definitely be
wrong. Her research on bush medicine
began over 20 years ago as a part of two
separate studies. While attending San
Salvador Teacher's College, she com-
menced and completed a long study in
bush medicine with samples for all the
plants researched. Later, she was a part
of a program at the University of the West
Indies where it was mandatory for her to

complete a Caribbean study. These were
splendid opportunities for her to advance
in the study of bush medicine.
Mrs. Smith informed me that she has
a second edition currently in the making
and hopes to receive an overall positive
feedback like she did on her first book.
The main difference in the second ad-
dition is that it will have more testimo-
nies, pictures and new plants along with
their remedies. It will contain different
variations of bush names throughout the
islands of The Bahamas (i.e. Rooster's
Comb is known as Scorpion Tail on
some islands). She hopes that this book
will someday be used as an educational

tool within schools around our nation,
as it will keep the youths of the country
informed about an integral part of the Ba-
hamian culture.
Still actively promoting her first book,
this Acklins native has been attending
conferences and giving lectures on both
national and international circuits. Doc-
tors have bought this very important
book with hopes of transforming certain
bush into pharmaceutical medication; but
as Mrs. Smith told me, "There is nothing
like natural medicine." She gave credit to
former book writer, the late Mrs. Leslie
Higgs, who really encouraged her during

her research period. "Mrs. Higgs and I
had tea in her home, and we discussed
bush medicine for a long period. I was
grateful to have shared that time with
her, as she gave me a greater insight on
the subject."
When asked if she would consider
leaving the teaching profession for a full
time writing career, Mrs. Smith laughed
and said, "No comment." The first edi-
tion of her book can be purchased on Ab-
aco at Abaco Treasures, Wrackers, and
Bellvue Business Depot. Mrs. Smith's
second book should be on the market by
Christmas 2008.

Pastors discuss religious tourism

By Samantha V. Evans
Religious Tourism is the latest initia-
tive introduced by the Ministry of Tour-
ism to attract high end church members to
Abaco. It is a faith-based marketing ini-
tiative that was first introduced to church
leaders at the introductory meeting held
in April of this year. Ms. Millie Dawkins
spearheads this area. During a meeting
held on July 19 a committee was formed
made up of the following pastors: Chair-
man - Bishop Bert Williams from Bethany
Chapel, Secretary - Millie Dawkins from
the Tourism office, Assistant Secretary -
Father Rogilio Madrazo of St. Francis de
Sales Catholic Church, Chaplin - Bishop
Roland Swain from First Beraca Baptist
Church, Pastor Stafford Symonette, Rev.
Dr. Stephen Hale and Pastor Mildred Fer-
guson serve as committee members. It
was agreed that the committee will meet
once per quarter.
At the meeting Ms. Dawkins stated
that a lot of groups are being attracted
to Abaco; so far the smallest group she

has worked with had 22 persons. Some
groups that come are connected to a local
church while others have no links to the
island. When the latter occurs, she finds a
church for them to worship at based on the
needs they express. She told the pastors
that it is important that she has pertinent
information about their churches such as
if they have a training center or meeting
and how many persons it can seat, whether
they have a kitchen, computer lab and the
like so that when groups come that have
special needs she can know who to refer
them to.
Ms. Dawkins would like them to con-
sider having a Gospel Festival once annu-
ally and gave them a sheet with possible
sub-committees for them to consider. The
topic of Junkanoo (which was one of the
sub-committees listed) created a problem
for most of the 15 pastors present and a
lively discussion ensued.
The discussion began with a comment
from Pastor Lernis Cornish who stated

that he doesn't believe that Junkanoo has
a place in the church; therefore, it should
not be presented at the Gospel Festival.
Pastor Cornish clearly stated that if Junk-
anoo is to be a part of the Gospel Festival
that he will not be a participant.
Ms. Dawkins explained to the group
that Junkanoo is a part of the Bahamian
culture and should be allowed. She further
explained that religious tourism is a busi-
ness and not only about church. She stated
that church leaders are looking for other
experiences as well, including things Ba-
hamian. She asked the pastors to suggest
another alternative to Junkanoo that would
give them the same experience.
The discussion became heated as many
more pastors had something a response to
her comments rather than give a sugges-
tion initially. Pastor Nigel London stated
that music comes from God so he doesn't
believe that the beat of a drum is sinful;
it is what persons do with the beat that
makes the music sinful. Hence, if they are
to have a Gospel Festival, then Christian
music must be played. Ms. Dawkins added
that there are many issues in the schools so
this Festival can serve many purposes. She
encouraged the pastors to be more open to
learning ways to reach the youth.
Pastor David Cartwright stated that

Junkanoo today is different from Junkanoo
of yesterday. There is too much nudity,
worldly music and vulgarity. Pastor Mil-
dred Ferguson added that she used to at-
tend Junkanoo festivals all the time in Nas-
sau; but since she became a Christian, she
no longer attends because she, too, does
not believe that the beats are the same to-
day. Pastor Silbert Mills stated that tour-
ism should work on getting hotels in The
Bahamas to have at least one religious
channel in their hotel rooms. Every hotel
he has stayed at does not have any.
Pastor Ricardo Bain stated that a time
should be set aside for all pastors to come
together to put an agenda together for a
Festival that they can be proud of and one
that locals and tourists alike will be happy
to attend. Finally, Pastor Clifford Henfield
suggested that since this will be the first
event that the Religious Tourism Commit-
tee will have, they should focus solely on
local entertainment from youth groups,
church choirs, dancers, comedians, drama
groups and rappers. All agreed with this
including Ms. Dawkins.
The next meeting is scheduled for Oc-
tober. Until the next meeting, the pastors
will brainstorm possible dates and activi-
ties they would like to have at this Gospel

Pastors met with Tourism staff on July 19 to discuss religious tourism, bringing church
groups to Abaco for conferences and seminars. The group formed a study committee dur-
ing this second meeting. Tourism hopes to organize a Gospel Festival that could become
an annual event.

Methodist Youth Workers
By Jennifer Hudson
Two college students from the United
States are here for six weeks this summer
assisting the Methodist church with their
youth programmes. Sarah Clarius from
Alexandria, Virginia, and Joshua Docter
from Shreveport, Louisiana. Both attend
North West State University in Natchi-
toches. They were in Marsh Harbour in
May on a mission trip with a group of
young volunteers to carry out construction
work on homes badly in need of repair in
Dundas Town. They enjoyed their experi-
ence so much that, when they discovered
that Rev. Septhen Hale needed assistance
with the youth programme at St. Andrews
Church in Dundas Town and Epworth
Chapel at Cherokee during the summer,
they volunteered to return and assist. They
arrived back here on July 3 and will remain
until August 16.

Sarah and Joshua run a children's pro-
gramme each Tuesday at the Epworth
Chapel in Cherokee and a youth group
there each Thursday. On Fridays they run
a youth group at St. Andrews in Dundas
Town. They are also involved in ministry
at both churches, working along with Rev.
Hale. During the three weeks that groups
from churches in the United States are run-
ning Vacation Bible School for the two
churches, Sarah and Joshua are also assist-
ing with that. "We keep very busy and are
absolutely loving it here," they enthused.
Cornish clearly stated that if Junkanoo is to
be a part of the Gospel Festival that he will
not be a participant.

different volunteer groups from the United
States who have been running Vacation Bi-

kee Sound during the month of July. The
first group was from Colonial Crossroads
Church in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; the
second from Jacksonville, Florida; and the
third from Cypress Lake United Methodist
Church in Fort Myers, Florida.
I met with the group from Cypress Lake
who were running the third and final week
of Vacation Bible School. These volunteers
enjoyed their experience here so much last

year that they have returned for the sec-
ond year and have doubled their number of
helpers to 13 this year. "It is so nice this
year that all of the children who attended
VBS last year and also the church members
remember us. We love coming and intend
to continue," stated Rob Liddle, leader of
the group, and his wife, Karen.
Vacation Bible School was very well at-

attending the first day and 75 the second

Vacation Bible School
at Grace Baptist
By Samantha V. Evans
Vacation Bible School began at Grace
Baptist Church on June 25 led by a group
of 42 persons from Flint Groves Baptist
Church in Gastonia, North Carolina, led
by Youth Pastor Rev. Chris Howell. The
group arrived on the island on June 23rd
and split into two groups: one group as-
signed to Grace Baptist in Dundas Town
and the other to Unity Baptist in Treasure
Cay. The camp was led by young people
from grades six through 12 and all of the
adults present work with the youth group
at their church. Rev. Chris stated that this

is their first international Vacation Bible
School but is sure that they will be back
next year. This connection was made with
Samuel Edgecombe as members of the
church came to Abaco for mission ser-
vices, and he arranged for them to speak
with Bishop Henfield from Grace Baptist
at which time the plans began.
The Vacation Bible School covered a
number of areas including praise and wor-
ship, recreation/sports, crafts, learning
session and snacks. The students learned
a lot about Bible characters and how to
develop some of those positive traits such
as sharing and caring. On June 28 the stu-
dents were presented with certificates of
participation for their involvement in the
program. When the team was not involved
in the program, they were visiting church-

marching, swimming and flag raising. The
entire week was action packed.
The campers went on two field trips,
one to Abaco Neem and the other to Hope
Town. They played volleyball games, had
water balloon fights and watched movies
outside. Even though the campers spent
most of their time outdoors, they still had
three hot meals everyday. Pastor Bain stat-
ed that even though the camp was fun, it
was disciplined as well.
Pastor Ricardo Bain, Emmitte Bootle,
Lueann Thompson and Pastor Leonardo
Rahming led the camp. The coordinator
was Ms. Melinda Lake. The young people
learned a lot about Jesus Christ and the
importance of living their lives for Him..
They had an opportunity to bond with oth-
er young people and to get more familiar
with the outdoors. They went to the beach
Before the camp ended, they took part
in two community service projects: they
cleaned two miles of the beach in Crossing
Rocks where they collected 80 to 90 bags

40 bags of groceries to residents in the
community where they camped. The stu-
dents returned home on July 8. The camp
was open to young people of all ages and
from any church.
Bertram Mills Speaks
on Abundance
By Samantha V. Evans
Bertram Mills has been a faithful mem-
ber of Change Ministries for many years
and for the second year agreed to share
some of his knowledge with the church
community and others. On July 19th he
spoke on Pre-requisites for God's Abun-
dance. The series of talks will take place
over a few weeks period of time so on this
first night he laid the foundation for the se-
ries. There are certain things that believers
must be prepared to do in order to live in
abundance. It is no longer good enough to
just say that you serve God on Sunday and
during the week you do not bear any good
fruit but they must be prepared to commit
fully to the call of God.
He provided a number of familiar scrip-
tures for references from the New Testa-

ment to help those willing to live a life that
pleases God. Additionally, he encouraged
persons to live a life that is pleasing in the
sight of God; that means helping and lov-
ing those who they do not like or those
who have mistreated them. He stated that
if God is to bless them they have to live
Anglican Bazaar Drew
Many Abaconians
By Samantha V. Evans
On July 14th St. John the Baptist An-
glican Church held its annual bazaar at the
church grounds. Father Hepburn stated
that the bazaar is an annual event that
the church holds but due to repairs to the
church, it was not held last year. The ba-
zaar draws persons from all stations in life
to celebrate with them in a family-friendly
environment. The community looks for-
ward to it as well as the parish members.
Once the renovations were completed on
the church earlier this year, the members
began to plan this event.

Another reason they look forward to this
event so much is because it is the major
fund raiser for the church and the running
of the various ministries. Over the years
the Anglican Church has been blessed by
the support of the public and Father Hep-
burn wants to thank everyone for their pa-
tronage over the years.
Many members of the church committed
countless hours to preparing for this event
and all of the work paid off. The event was
well supported by the public and there was
a constant flow of people throughout the
day. They had booths for face painting,
fritters, Father Hepburn's famous daiqui-
ris, a bouncing castle, ribs, fish and chick-
en dinners and much more.

Change Ministries'
Women's Conference
By Samantha V. Evans
My Baby is Leaping was the theme under
which Change Ministries held its women's
conference on July 11-13th at the church in
Murphy Town. The speakers for the event
were Pastor Helene McPhee from Agape
Full Gospel Baptist Church in Nassau, Pas-
tor Samuel Cornish, host pastor, and Pastor
Darlene Bishop from Solid Rock Church in
Munroe, Ohio. The three-night event was
well supported by locals from all across
Abaco and guests from Nassau and Andros.
Many pastors and their spouses supported
the event each evening and were blessed by
the event, especially since this was a wom-
en's conference.
The first night Pastor Helene McPhee told
the attendees that all of them were created by

God for a purpose and
that they are special and
unique and do not need
to sell themselves short
to men. Hence, it is
important that they love
themselves first before
they try to love someone
else. She reminded them
that God prizes them and
wants only the best for
them but they must put
Him first in their lives.
She told the men to
respect their wives,
honor them and not
abuse them. She told
the women that they do
not have to put up with a
man abusing them, there
is help out there. She
stated that the church
must do its part to help

On Thursday evening Pastor Samuel
Cornish addressed the conference. He spoke
to single women and wives especially. He
told the single women that they need not be
ashamed because they are single. He told the
wives they must be prepared to please their
men in every possible way.
The final night, July 13th, Pastor Darlene
Bishop addressed the conference. She stated

that prayer is very important in order for
God to bless His people. She told everyone
to evaluate their lives by asking themselves
what they have done with the years they
have already spent and what they plan to
do now with the time they have left. They

Enlist in upcoming Wedding Seminar

By Michelle Mikula
President of the Bahamas Bridal As-
sociation, Ms. Paulette Davis, will be the
special guest at Abaco's Wedding in a
Conch Shell Seminar that is slated to take
place on August 13th. The seminar is be-
ing coordinated by Bernadette Hall of the
Abaco Tourist Office. This one day event,
which is free of cost, is targeting persons
who are interested in tapping into this lu-
crative market or wish to stay abreast of
its evolvement. Focus will be placed on
destination weddings, the on-line marriage
application process, the current trends,
e-commerce, wedding photography and
much more, said Ms. Hall.
Those in attendance will be given the
opportunity to register with the Baha-
mas Bridal Association that will provide
international networking opportunities,
promotional tricks of the trade, interna-
tional wedding and honeymoon training
and event partnership. During this seminar
Ms. Hall is expecting to properly prepare
Abaconians for the upcoming Bridal Ex-
travaganza that is scheduled to take place
October 18th-20th where Abaconians will
be given the opportunity to participate and
showcase their talent to potential brides
and grooms.
If you wish to attend this seminar,
please reserve seating with Bernadette Hall

at the Abaco Tourist Office at 367-3067 or due to limited space.
The seminar will take place at the Ministry
of Tourism's Training Center at Memorial
Plaza from 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Tuberculosis cases
include one on Abaco
Four cases of tuberculosis have been
diagnosed in The Bahamas, two in New
Providence and one case each in Abaco
and Eleuthera in recent weeks.
It is not uncommon for cases of tuber-
culosis to be found in The Bahamas. Each
year some cases are reported from a high
of 82 cases in 1997 but usually about 40
to 47. However, in 2006, the number of
reported cases rose to 62.
Tuberculosis is a communicable dis-
ease that is caused by bacteria that can be
spread when an infected person coughs,
sneezes, talks, spits or sings. This allows
the infectious droplets to go into the atmo-
sphere. The common symptoms include a
prolonged cough, fever, night sweats and
weight loss.
After a patient is diagnosed with tuber-
culosis, persons who have been in close
contact with that person should be tested.
The Department of Public Health in
New Providence, Abaco and Eleuthera are
taking the necessary surveillance.

need to make sure that the decisions they
make from now on will be productive for
the kingdom of God.
She encouraged them to start planning
now for 2008 and not wait until year end.
God needs to have a plan to go by if He
is to bless their lives. It is impossible to
become all God wants for them to become
if they remain the same. She concluded
by telling them to practice making bet-
ter choices in life so that their days ahead
can be brighter. She explained that time
is their most valuable commodity so they
must chose very wisely what they spend
it doing.

Immigration From Page 4

sons are becoming so desperate that they
are forging documents with the administra-
tor's signature on them and others are pur-
chasing them for $3500. This has resulted
in the Department of Immigration having
to scrutinize the documents of all persons
more carefully. The problem is so serious
that a few young men who were caught
with false documents were taken before the
court, charged and sentenced to jail time
because of this act.
Supt. Dorsett requests that all persons
be patient and allow the system to work.
The process may be slow; but in due time,
if they allow him and his staff to do their
jobs, they expect to have answers soon.

Summer camps dominate youth activities

Camps are offered for children in many Abaco towns
. l 4-- Hope Town Sailing
and Sports Camp
./ . . : . ,By Jennifer Hudson.
S. . . Since 1973 the Hope Town Sailing and
Sports Camp has been providing summer
. : . . fun and instruction for the children of El-
S," bow Cay. Though the camp is primarily
.. for local children, participants are allowed
l ato bring along out-of-town guests if space
., . allows. Jim Laughlin has been co-director
of this camp along with his wife Marjorie
for the entire 15 years of its existence. Jim
and his wife, who live most of the year
� ;-; in New Jersey, have been spending sum-
mers in Hope Town for many years and re-
alised the need for a summer camp for the
children there. They have a constant flow
of volunteers who include teachers who

work with Jim at Princeton Day School,
college friends and family members. They
are also assisted by counselors who used
to be campers and now both volunteer and
participate. The camp averages 40 children
each day aged five to 15 years and runs
each year from the first Monday in July
to the last Friday in July from 8:30 a.m.
to 12 noon, Mondays through Fridays. Jim
and Marjorie's two girls, Kate and Mag-
gie, aged ten and six, enjoy participating
each summer.
The camp, which is sponsored by the
Hope Town Sailing Club, is free to all
participants. "The Club provides a budget
for the camp and provides for the repairs

to sailing craft, but donations are always
welcome," says Jim. Activities include
windsurfing with lessons given by instruc-
tor Anne Adair from the United States
and instruction in sailing by visiting in-
structors and Ron Engle of Hope Town,
who is an instructor with the Hope Town
Sailing Club's Fall to Spring Junior Sail-
ing Programme. Ron brings along several
Optimist sailboats from the sailing club
fleet which are used along with the sunfish
which belong to the summer camp. "The
Optimists are very good boats for teaching
little kids," stated Jim Laughlin. The sail-
ing is usually done off Nathan's Bay on the
northwest side of Elbow Cay.
Other activities enjoyed by the camp-
ers include arts and crafts, games at the
ballfield, swimming at the beach on the

east side of Hope Town and a visit to the
lighthouse. Special treats include a trip to
the reef with Froggies, lunch at Cracker
P's hosted by owners Linda and Patrick
and a visit to Munchies for ice cream. The
campers also completed a garbage pickup
around Taylor Park.
"This is our 15th year and we intend to
keep going; I thoroughly enjoy it." says
Jim Laughlin.
Hope Town Primary
School's Awards Night
By Cnadace Key
Award's Night at the Hope Town School
is much anticipated each June. Students and
parents gather nervously, wondering which
award their child has won. Every child at
Hope Town School is special and every
child wins an award. The awards are for
the most part given as memorial awards by

families in memory of a community person
who has passed away but possessed a trait
that made them stand out and that is wor-
thy of rewarding children who demonstrate
these same traits. A new award was added
this year by the daughter and granddaugh-
ter of Mrs. Beth Leroy, who although she
did not live here, visited her family often.
That award was given to the child who
overcame her fear of water and began to
learn to swim after much coaching from
the granddaughter of Mrs. Leroy.
Mr. Patrick Bethel, a former Principal
of Hope Town School, gives an award
each year for Perfect Attendance. Children
vie for this award and often are reluctant
to miss any days of school. Mr. Bethel's
award is one of the few that is given by
a still living person, and the staff enjoys
Please see Cays Page 4

About 40 young people of Elbow Cay enjoy the sailing and summer camp experience
given them by the Hope Town Sailing Club. The program is organized by Jim and Marjo-
rie Laughlin who have been donating the time and efforts to the camp for 15 years. Many
volunteers come specifically to assist with the program.

teasing him about that! He was a special
guest at Award's Night this year; and as
he gazed out on the crowd, stated that he
knew or taught very few people in the au-
dience. He also remarked how Hope Town
has enjoyed remarkable growth and has
become infused with many more families
each year.
Mrs. Suzanne Bethel, herself a 30-year
veteran teacher and principal at Hope
Town School, attends each year to present
awards from people who once lived here
that had enjoyed success in life, such as
Dr. George Gallup (of the Gallup Poll)
and children's book author, Mrs Adelaide
It is not unusual to see three genera-
tions of a family stand together and pres-
ent awards in memory of their loved ones.

Man-O-War held
public town meeting
Chief Councillor Jeremy Sweeting re-
viewed the past year's accomplishments
of the Council as pertaining to Man-O-
War Cay. Mr. Sweeting thanked previ-
ous Councils for their work at maintaining
the island and noted that each succeeding
group of Councillors builds on the work
left by previous Councillors.
He was particular proud that nearly all
burning at the dump had been eliminated.
Four containers of garbage were now re-
moved every two weeks by barge. The four
are replaced by empty containers to begin
the cycle again. The containers are emptied
at the Marsh Harbour public dump. Other

work of the Council included repairing the
harbour entrance light, cleaning the cem-
etery and installing a plaque there, and ini-
tiating the Man-O-War Wall of Heroes.
Councillor Joe Albury was thanked
for single-handedly renovating the library
Budget figures were given showing that
over half of the District's $344,576 annual
budget was spent on garbage collection and
removal. He was dismayed that the single
island of Green Turtle Cay received an
$85,000 increase while the of Hope Town
District received an increase $8,076 to be
shared between the District's three towns.
One of the larger issues of residents con-
cerned the two-week interval for removing
the open containers of garbage. The island

is being over-run with house flies, appar-
ently to a greater extent than before, and
the open garbage containers are thought
to be at fault. The empty containers come
back without being washed and arrive full
of flies to repeat the cycle.
Various options at increasing the re-
moval frequency were discussed. It was
pointed out that the Ministry of Environ-
mental Health pays to have the Hope Town
garbage removed by barge twice a week
whereas Man-O-War must finance its own
garbage removal. Smaller bins were sug-
gested which the local freight boats could
handle. No conclusion was reached, but
Mr. Sweeting promised to look into the

It was suggested that the public dock

About 24 residents filled the school class-

Hope Town Council
holds press conference
Abaco and The Abaconian attended the
July 17 press conference of the Hope Town
Council. The Councillors felt victimized
by the election process called to replace the
two Man-O-War Councillors who had been
originally appointed. Insufficient persons
nominated originally to fill the three posi-
tions. Chief Councillor Jeremy Sweeting
referred to this action by Central Govern-
ment as the "firing" of these two members
which amounted to political victimization.
Mr. Sweeting pointed out that only
Man-O-War was singled out for this ex-
ercise although there were many districts
with similar appointed members serving.
He was particularly critical that no other

district had been mentioned as having elec-
tions to replace appointed members.
Furthermore, one Hope Town member
on the Council had been appointed, but
there has been no mention of an election to
replace this member.
Two people who had previously rep-
resented Man-O-War on the Council gave
brief remarks on the Hope Town dock after
the press conference. They had not been
permitted to attend the conference held in
the Council office upstairs beside the Post
They felt that long-standing and accept-
ed practices in Man-O-War were being dis-
mantled by the present Council. They did
not feel that the present Council's actions
were always in the town's best interests.
Councillors hear Hope
Towns' concerns
About 24 persons attended an open town
meeting in the Methodist church in Hope
Town on July 25. Most of the session was
devoted to questions from the audience.

Chief Councillor Jeremy Sweeting was
disappointed that the Hope Town Council
received only a 2.4 percent increase to its
budget whereas many other towns received


an increase of more than 20 percent. Green

whereas Hope Town Council only got an

about half of the Council's budget alloca-
tion for the three towns.
Mr. Sweeting was proud that the Council
had squeezed its last year's allocation and
ended the year with a surplus which they
used for various area maintenance jobs.
However, he was questioned whether
this strategy backfired by showing central
government that they were able to do with
less funding and the austerity measures
were counter-productive. This may have
resulted in the meager increase for this
The poor condition of the road on top
of the dune at White sound was mentioned
many times. Mr. Sweeting responded that
an engineer from Nassau is scheduled to
visit the site on August 3 and make recom-
It was mentioned without response that a
pump-out station is needed in Hope Town
to reduce harbour pollution.
The largest issue bringing the greatest
response from the audience was related to
trash handling and dump management. It
was universally felt that an attendant was
needed at the dump site to enforce proper

garbage placement.
Complaints were made about the truck
coming from Marsh Harbour which moves
the containers from the dump site to the
transfer dock in White Sound. It is uncov-
ered and constantly spewing debris along
the roadway as it speeds to the freight
landing with the full, uncovered contain-
ers. Various strategies were discussed to
limit the truck's speeding and to impose
penalties for littering. It was believed that
a $5,000 fine can be imposed for littering
the roadways.
Twice a week four 40-foot containers
full of trash are taken from Elbow Cay to
Marsh Harbour where they are trucked to
the dump.
Requests were made to the Councillors
for a detailed report on where the money is
spent. Above the normal budget amounts,
$15,000 was given to each town in the
spring for small capital projects. Admin-
istrator Cooper responded by promising to
have expense sheets available at the next

The Hope Town District Council held a press conference on July 17 to protest what they
felt was discrimination against Man-O-War. An election will be held on Man-O-War to
replace two Council members who were appointed by central government because not
enough people nominated for the election in June 2005. However, one Council member
from Hope Town was also appointed but no election was announced for Hope Town.

Questions were raised over a piece of
public land in White Sound that has been
taken over by freight companies, garbage
containers and various contractors. A pre-
vious Council member disclosed that it was
to be divided between commercial purposes
and a public park area. Freight uses were
to be assigned a strip 75 feet wide with the
balance improved for a park. Questions
arose over charging rent for those using it
for commercial purposes.
Other comments made without answers
or further comment were:
* How can Elbow Cay restrict vehicle
size and control oversized vehicles on the
* Government receives a 10 per cent
stamp tax on all land sales. Since all land
south of White Sound is valued at $1 mil-
lion or more, each sale nets government
over $100,000. Yet, the District was given

an annual increase of $8,076 to be shared
between the three island towns. Why so
* Objections were made of the upcom-
ing election in Man-O-War Cay to replace

Man-O-War was being picked on as there
was no mention of holding similar elections
on the other districts which had appointed

Friends' summer camps offered fun and learning

By Jennifer Hudson
Bahamas Marine Mammal Research
Organization, formerly known as the Ba-
hamas Marine Mammal Survey, held its
first environmental summer camp three
or four years ago at Sandy Point. This
camp was so successful that Friends of
the Environment has now decided to
partner with them this summer and of-
fer camps in Marsh Harbour and North
Abaco in addition to the one at Sandy
Point. The Bahamas Mammal Research
Organisation will be sending a represen-
tative to each of the Marsh Harbour and
North Abaco camps.
Camps were being held for a total pe-
riod of five weeks in Marsh Harbour and
six weeks in North and South Abaco. Se-

nior camps for children ages 10 to 13 and
junior camps for children aged seven to
nine were held on different dates during
this period from nine to 12 noon Monday
to Friday in Marsh Harbour and North
Abaco from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to
Friday in South Abaco. Camps were also
held on Man-O-War Cay for two days
at the end of June and two days at the
beginning of July and also for three days
in July on Green Turtle Cay for children
aged seven to 13 years. All available
places in the camps were filled.
Running the camps in Marsh Harbour
at the Central Abaco Primary School
was Friends' Educational Officer d'Shan
Maycock and Forest Heights Academy
Principal Jim Richard. In North Abaco

the camp was run at the S.C. Bootle
High School by Laura Davies. who is a
Friends' Board member and teacher at
the school. Olivia Patterson, Programme
Coordinator for Friends, ran the camp
in Sandy Point in partnership with the
Bahamas Marine Mamma 1 Research Or-
ganization. D'Shan Maycock traveled to
Man-O-War and Green Turtle Cay to run
the camps there.
The curriculum included games, arts
and crafts, and the study of subjects such
as coral reefs, mangroves, ecosystems,
turtle conservation, Bahamian wildlife,
recycling, endangered species, invasive
species and the Abaco National Parks.
Nancy Albury, Abaco Manager of the
Bahamas Antiquities, Museums and
Monuments Corporation, gave talks
on the Sawmill Sink project and fossils
found there and a field trip was made to
the site. Field trips were also made to
other locations including the Blue Hole
at Treasure Cay and snorkeling trips to
Mermaid Reef where the children ob-
served the marine life around the artifi-
cial reef balls which have been placed.
The highlight of the senior camp was
at its close when it is hoped that a night

will be spent either on a Moorings char-
ter boat or camping out in the pine forest
following a nature hike.
Organizers of these camps hope that
through the various videos, talks, activi-
ties and field trips the young people will
develop an appreciation for the environ-
ment and see the need to protect it. Each
camper will be asked to bring in as many
aluminum cans as they can find during the
weeks of camp to teach them the benefits
of recycling and the boy and girl bring-
ing in the most will be crowned "King
and Queen of Cans." It is hoped that the
youngsters will relay these concerns to
their parents and families and encourage
them to recycle and to prevent litter and
also encourage them to purchase and use
the Green Bags for their groceries in or-
der to cut down on the excessive number
of plastic bags in circulation which are so
detrimental to the environment.
All camps are being offered entirely
free and the Friends always welcomes
donations from persons in the commu-
nity who wish to assist in helping to de-
fray costs.

Bahamas Marine Mammal Research and Friends of the Environment partnered to offer
environmental summer camps to children in North, Central and South Abaco. These
children are examining a turtle skull that was retrieved from Sawmill Sink, a blue hole in
South Abaco. While the children are having fun playing games, going on field trips and
doing crafts, they are hopefully developing a respect for their environment.

Swimmers compete
in Freeport
By Mirella Santillo
Over the weekend of July 7th a group of
boys and girls from the Marsh Harbour and

Hope Town swimming teams visited Free-
port to compete against swimmers from
Nassau and Grand Bahama. The group
which was comprised of youngsters from
under 6 years old to 12 years old, six from
Marsh Harbour and 14 from Hope Town,

The Abaco Club at Winding Bay donated gloves, helmets, bats
and other baseball equipment to aid the , i c,ril formed Little
League Baseball Association. Mr. Leslie Rolle, President of
the Little League Association, accepted this equipment. i5,i"' ,
here are Mr. Rolle; Mr. Stone McEwan, Abaco Public Rela-
tions of the Abaco Club; and Mr. Eustace Penn, Vice Presi-
dent of the Association. After unsuccessfully soliciting help
from the business community, Mr. Rolle was pleased with the
immediate and generous assistance given by the Abaco Club.
Abaco's Little League Baseball Association was formed sev-
eral months ago and has upwards of 50 children aged five to
17participating. Three leagues cater to youth in various age
groups. T-ball is for children agedfive to eight, Junior League
is for those nine to 13 and the Little League is for kids 14 to
17. Games are pr cr.cur played at the softballfield at the Mur-
phy Town Park. The league is hoping to establish its own field
soon with proper dimensions for the layout.

left Abaco on the ferry
on July 5th.
"They did well for
the strong competition
they faced," explained
coach Lawrence Higgs.
"They were compet-
ing against swimmers
who took part in the
Carifta events. But
most placed," he con-
Mr. Higgs, who
took over the coaching
of the Marsh Harbour
team in June when for-
mer coach Dominic
Latella left, said that
his goal is to bring the
team from the 10 pres-
ently training for com-
petition to 20 partici-
pants. For that reason,
he is planning to visit
the schools in Septem-
ber to recruit. "I want
to get swimmers in
every age group, boys
and girls," he said.
His short term plans
are to get children to
participate in the three-
mile race in October
from Boat Harbour to
Hope Town. The long

term plans for this year are to prepare the
kids for the National Competition that will
take place next June, he said. Presently ap-
proximately eight to 10 children train every
day at the Long Bay School pool for com-
petitive swimming. To become a competi-
tive swimmer, a child has to swim at least
three different strokes. The most popular

Summer Sports Program
By Julian Lockhart
The Ministry of Sports' summer pro-
gram on Abaco hit a snag over the last
couple of weeks as the inclement weather

prevented Ishmael "Stretch" Morley and
his team from working with the youth in
Abaco. With the consistent rainfall and
having no gym, Mr. Morley had to post-
pone the program and is hoping for better
weather over the next couple of weeks so
the youth can have at least two weeks of
Because of the weather soccer and vol-
leyball were cancelled and the youth will
only be able to compete in basketball for
the remaining two weeks, all depending
on the rain.
Mr. Morley said, "We didn't do too

much with the summer sports program
because of the rain. We had athletes who
are away in school in the U.S. who were
supposed to run the sporting programs. But
last week it rained and as soon as we get a
break they will continue running the pro-
gram. There are some local athletes in the
local Youth in Action program who will
be helping as well. Summer kids are not
that closed-minded because in the regular
school year they are already in school and
adjusted. There are a lot of good athletes
and it is just a matter for us to get good
facilities so we can invite scouts down. We

were scheduled to do soccer, volleyball
and basketball but because of the rain we
can only do basketball," he added.
This summer adds even more evidence
as to why Abaco needs an indoor facility
so the youth can have somewhere to con-
sistently practice and compete in.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham prom-
ised Abaco two gyms when he was cam-
paigning in May and they are more than
overdo as the youth have no where to go
to get out of the blazing sun and consistent

Friends of the Environment presented its annual student summer scholarship award to
Alex Forbes, a grade twelve student of St. Francis de Sales School. This scholarship
gives an opportunity for one student who has completed at least one year of high school
on Abaco to apply. The student will participate in a 10-day expedition coordinated by

people can be housed on a short term or
long term basis and the amenities neces-
sary to receive them are in place, such as
toilets and access for disabled people.
The training covered the logistics and
the distribution of tasks to the manage-
ment team while preparing the shelter and
the running of the facilities while in use
as well as dealing with possible problems
arising from the close contact of people
from different backgrounds in a confined
environment. The class was dismissed af-
ter a full eight hour training period. There
was a brief pause for lunch which had been
organized by Mrs. Elaine Martinborough
with the office of Urban Renewal.
The second day was dedicated to learn-
ing how to assess the risks facing a com-
munity and its vulnerability in case of a
disaster and to determine the level of dam-
age to property after a disaster had struck.
In the case of Abaco the disaster would
most likely be a hurricane and its conse-
quences such as wind damage, surge and
flooding. The participants were also intro-
duced to the possibility of other disasters
that can occur in the Caribbean, such as
volcanic eruptions and earth quakes with
their resulting consequences.
The class, divided in groups, took part

in recognizing and assessing the hazards
and the degree of vulnerability resulting
from conditions present in a community
and was asked to recommend intervention
actions which would lessen the risks to the
residents. After lunch, the second part of
the session concentrated on determinating
the various degrees of damage to real es-
tate property caused by various disasters,
hurricanes, earth quakes and volcanic
eruptions and the possibility of repairs.
The seminars were once more under the
auspice of the Office of U.S. Foreign Di-
saster Assistance, of which Mrs. Armbris-
ter is the coordinator for The Bahamas.

Climate change video was winner

Page 19 B

By Jennifer Hudson
On July 24 a cheque for $1000 was
presented to Lindsay Delaplaine and
Matthew McCoy of Hope Town, winners
in a recent Climate Change video compe-
tition. The presentation was made by Di-
rector-General and CEO of the Bahamas
Red Cross, Ms. Marina Glinton, at the
Red Cross headquarters in Marsh Har-
bour; also present was Ms. Barbara John-
son, Chairman of the Red Cross Centre
in Marsh Harbour. The competition was
launched by the Red Cross which is try-
ing to sensitise the public about climate
change and how it will affect our country
and the entire world; and they were seek-
ing an advertisement for television high-
lighting climate change awareness.
The Red Cross Society feels that from a
humanitarian perspective climate change
is a key concern of theirs. They state that
climate change was initially seen as an
environmental problem, not a humanitar-
ian one. But it is now realized that cli-
mate change will lead to more weather
extremes, more floods, heat waves,

droughts, intense hurricane aims and ty-
phoons. Moreover, these disasters will
mostly affect the most vulnerable people,
the elderly and sick, the poorest of the
poor. This is one of the main global is-
sues of the 21st century.
The Bahamas Red Cross has been
mandated "to increase the awareness of
the understanding of the negative impacts
of climate change for our country in or-
der to improve programmes, research
and policies that will strengthen the resil-
ience of our vulnerable people." One of
these initiatives was to launch a National
Climate Change Short Film Competition
to not only help raise the awareness of
climate change risks but also to raise the
value of the contribution that others can
make to our risk reduction programmes.
The competition was open to anybody
and 10 entries were received. The four-
minute films were viewed on a big screen
at ZNS and adjudicated by a panel of
"All of the entries were of a very high
standard, but the winning entry of Mat-
thew McCoy and Lindsey Delaplaine of

Hope Town was exceptionally good and
stood out above all the rest," stated Ms.
Glinton. Second and third place winners
were both from Nassau.
"We had a lot of fun making this video
which is entitled, Three Bahamians in a
tub," stated Lindsey and Matthew, who
are very keen environmentalists. "First
we wrote the script and then invited three
of our friends to come along and be ac-
tors in our short film. We put them in a
little Abaco dinghy just off Hope Town,
and they did an excellent job of acting
out our script." This winning entry has
already been aired in Trinidad for the In-

ternational Red Cross; and all of the en-
tries should be seen on ZNS television in
the very near future.
A similar competition is being held in
each country of the Caribbean and the
winning entry from each of these coun-
tries will be incorporated, along with
Matthew and Lindsey's winning entry,
into a big promotional film to be made by
the International Red Cross on Climate
change and how it is affecting the Carib-

Sand barge crew member found dead

A 39-year-old crew member on the sand barge Big Ben docked at Snake Cay was found
dead in the bottom of the ship's hull yesterday morning. A team of police officers boarded
the barge and saw the body of the vessel's first mate, Licario Suazo Alvarez, 39, of Hon-
duras sitting in a slumped position at the bottom of the hull. According to the barge's
captain, Glen Bodden, 37, also of Honduras, Alvarez had just finished eating breakfast
with four other crew members when shortly afterwards he was found in that position in
the hull. The officers examined the body and found no visible injuries. The body was taken
to the government clinic at Marsh Harbour where it was officially pronounced dead. It
has since been flown to New Providence, where an autopsy will be performed to deter-
mine the exact cause of death. The Big Ben plies between Grand Bahama and Abaco,
transporting sand and gravel.

summer rains. Until then Abaco will not
be able to host a basketball or volleyball
tournament and will have to depend on the
youth traveling to other islands to compete
and gain experience.
Morley said, "This will help the kids
because basically what we are trying to do
is enhance their skills and keep them out of
problems. If we have had a basic, the gym,
the rain would not be a problem. We are at
the mercy of the weather. When we have
good weather, we can work. When we
have bad weather there is nothing we can
do. We had our program in the afternoon
because we didn't want to take away from
the Vacation Bible Schools at the school
and the Methodist Church. We have to
wait a couple of hours to accommodate all
the morning programs. The gym is very
important because a lot of things you can
do inside if you have bad weather. If there
is bad weather, scouts could still see our
athletes if we have a gym," he concluded.

Greetings from the Chief Councillor and Council Members of the Hope Town District Council

The Hope lown L
Roy Cash, Deputy Chilef Councillor; J

exercise that had never been introduced: an Harold Malone; Jeremy Sweeting
attempt to enact town planning and zoning
byelaws that would curtail uncontrolled growth and serve our district's quaint nature and pristine
conditions. The byelaws, through a district referendum, were narrowly defeated (despite the support
received by the township of Hope Town). The procedure, although defeated, was a big step in the
ever-evolving Local Government process as we became the first Council to attempt such a feat.
As time went on, we have worked tirelessly on your behalf, to better our communities. Throughout
our district we have listened and we have laboured to bring to you the type of service that is due
you. In our district and respective townships the following is a brief outline of works performed for
the betterment of our district.
Hope Town
* Road works * Built ramp at Government Clinic
* Establishment of a Friendly Society * Installed markers at harbour's entrance
* Repaired light on Eagle's Rock * Repaved road to lower dock
* Installed some new street lights * New steps at Post Office dock
* Patched pot holes * Cleaned the Upper Graveyard
* Donated and adopted recycle bins * Fixed public toilets
* Repaired and painted flag pole * New stop sign at Sea Spray
* Road to Hope Town Lodge cleaned * Trees cut away from roads
* Cleaned up in the harbour * New pump for the public toilets
* New overhang on the Council office * Repaired harbour entrance lights
* Installed additional markers in harbour * Installed some new street lights
* Nw clinic ramp and new double throw switch for the generator
* A big thank you to Mr. Ross Thompson for all the hard work in keeping the floats at the
entrance of the harbour in place
Man-O-War Cay
* Harbour light fixed * Establishment of a Friendly Society
* Basketball court restoration * Picnic area at "Low Place"
* Better waste management * Old Cemetery restoration
* Street signs * Road works
* Remembering our heroes by erecting Wall of Heroes
* Worked constantly with BEC and Batelco to transfer lines to new poles and extract the old ones
* Helped in construction of wall along "Erie Canal" and beautification of point property
Also in Man-O- War with assistance of the Man-O- War Community Association:
* Harbour welcome sign * Public dock welcome sign
* Harbour markers * Community notice board
Great Guana Cay
* Remembering heroes with a plaque of heroes * Road works
We would like to applaud the efforts of Councillor Robert Malone, who took the initiative to

deal with the relevant government agencies
regarding revenue enhancement. He has
Seen tirelessly working with government
agencies to bring a better strategy in revenue
collections. His concern of the loop holes in
S the current system sparked the attention of
the necessary officials and because of this,
various government agencies have responded
in kind and have been hosting meetings with
Councillor Malone and other officials to find
ways to better the collection system. All of
district Counthis is an effort on his part with the hope that
Jos h Albury; Christop r Albury; if we can collect more revenue, then maybe
ehe ACo uci r o her Albury his township can receive more. This initiative
Chief Councillor; Robert Malone
hief C cillor; R er M lone is well on the right track; and if brought to
full fruition, many thanks will be in order for Councillor Malone and his insight on how to better
handle revenue collections.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Councillor Joe Albury for his personal
contributions in restoring the Man-O-War Library which was almost a total interior renovation
project. Joe donated materials and labour to reconstruct the entire floor that was rotten. He
repainted inside the library, built a new table, bought a computer desk and donated a computer.
Additionally, he installed new lights and a hand carved library sign with a Man-O-War bird. Further,
he constructed a new flagpole for the school. Mr. Albury, we thank you for this tremendous gift you
have blessed your community with, and may God's richest blessings continue to shine upon you for
your labour of love.
The brief outline above, was not submitted to boast, or to lash out vents of bravado on Council
accomplishments, but instead to keep you abreast on what the Council has done. As residents, you
have the right to be fully informed and not left in the dark. Since assuming office, we didn't just take
another seat on the Council to fill former positions, but rather we have taken bold initiative to work
hard for each and every resident in our district. Yes, that is our job, and that is what is supposed to
be expected of us, and we have worked tirelessly for you.
In times past we have been modest and downplayed the accomplishments of this Council for the
simple reason of not wanting to receive a label of pride. Despite our feelings in the past, we felt the
time has come to present to you a report on what has been done with so little that we have had.
We have worked around the clock finding ways to make each dollar go further and ensuring that we
have been fiscally responsible. So many works have been done with the allocated funds we have had
to work with. We will continue to serve our communities heading into the final year of our Council's
term with integrity, fairness and openness.
If you have any suggestions of ways to make our communities better, let us know. We are here
to serve you!
Yours Faithfully,

Jeremy T. Sweeting, Chief Councillor

Page 24 B The Abaconian

By Julian Lockhart
Summer is starting to wind down and
with the end of summer comes the begin-
ning of a new school year. Teachers and
students are starting to prepare for the
new school year and with that comes new
experiences and hopefully a better sports
program with inter-school competition.
Last year the high schools on Aba-
co barely had any form of inter-school
sports. Besides the track and field meet, a
handful of American flag football games
and a swim meet where only one high
school showed up, the sports program on
the island is really lacking.
Ministry of Sports representative Ish-
mael "Stretch" Morley said, "For the
competition we have to go through the
Principals Association and the High
School Sporting Associations and we
can't do anything without those two bod-
ies working together and with us. Until
we get everyone on the same page, you
won't have all the schools participating in
the same events. They have to see what
sports can benefit their schools and what
glory sports can bring to their schools. I
wouldn't say they are not together. It is
just a matter for them to put more em-

.. High School Sports

phasis on sports and for them to under-
stand sports and what it can do for their
schools," he added.
In New Providence, Grand Bahama,
Andros and Eleuthera the high schools
compete against each other in basket-
ball, softball, soccer, volleyball, track
and field and many other sports.
It is understood to build the well
rounded student athletic competition is
definitely a plus and creates another add-
ed distinction on their diploma when ap-
plying to universities. Also sports brings
recognition to a school through great
athletic performances, student athletes
receiving scholarships abroad and thus
colleges sending more scouts to Abaco
to look for raw talent.
However, if these student athletes
aren't receiving consistent competition
in their discipline, then they are not able
to hone their skills and are not putting
themselves in position to receive sports
scholarships to colleges and universities
However, because of the lacking of
competition and the schools on Abaco
not getting together to compete against
each other consistently, it is best for the

top talent on Abaco to go elsewhere to
play. This way they put themselves in a
better position to gain an athletic schol-
arship in the United States or Canada.
Mr. Morley said, "Abaco Central and
S.C. Bootle have excellent athletes, but
they need more game time, more com-
petition so they can run up and down
the court and learn how to play with the
clock and stuff. They will never win a
championship because as soon as they
show they can play, schools on New
Providence and Grand Bahama take
them. That decision has to be made by
their parents. I don't have a problem
with their going to Nassau or Freeport
because we don't have the facilities.
You can't invite anyone here unless
they come to play outside. We are at the
mercy of the weather then. That is the
only way they can get scholarships and it
will be beneficial for them to go. If you
look at Tabernacle, they are loaded with
Abaco Central High; and if you look at
Sunland, they are loaded with Abaco
Central High and S.C. Bootle players,"
Mr. Morley added.

Summer Work
By Samantha V. Evans
Every year young people in high
school look forward to gaining a little
work experience over their summer
break and to earning money for back to
school. The Government Agency Sum-
mer Work Experience Program began
on the island of Abaco on July 16th
with teenagers being placed at govern-
ment departments across Central Abaco
including the Post Office, BEC, the
Port Authority, Customs, Road Traffic,
the Administrator's Office, Ministry of
Tourism, the Court, and the Business
License Office. The placement of teens
was the responsibility of Mrs. Enid
Whyte and Mr. Ishmael "Stretch" Mor-
ley. The students will work two weeks
at the above offices. At the end of the
work experience they will receive a
small stipend for their assistance.

for a reverse osmosis plant and associated

The road in White Sound on Elbow Cay was built on the top of the sand dune. During
Hurricane Floyd much of the sand of the dune was eroded away. Despite efforts to shore
up the dune, the foundation of the road is gradually eroding away. This erosion will seri-
ously impact the entire White Sound area if it is allowed to continue. In past years there
was talk of moving the road to go along the sound shoreline but the work was never done.
Engineers are expected the beginning of August to assess the situation and make recom-
mendations for improving this serious situation.

people can be housed on a short term
or long term basis and the amenities nec-
essary to receive them are in place, such
as toilets and access for disabled people.
The training covered the logistics and
the distribution of tasks to the manage-
ment team while preparing the shelter
and the running of the facilities while
in use as well as dealing with possible
problems arising from the close contact
of people from different backgrounds in
a confined environment. The class was
dismissed after a full eight hour train-
ing period. There was a brief pause for
lunch which had been organized by Mrs.
Elaine Martinborough with the office of
Urban Renewal.
The second day was dedicated to
learning how to assess the risks facing a
community and its vulnerability in case
of a disaster and to determine the level
of damage to property after a disaster
had struck. In the case of Abaco the di-
saster would most likely be a hurricane

and its consequences such as wind dam-
age, surge and flooding. The participants
were also introduced to the possibility of
other disasters that can occur in the Ca-
ribbean, such as volcanic eruptions and
earth quakes with their resulting conse-
The class, divided in groups, took part
in recognizing and assessing the hazards
and the degree of vulnerability resulting
from conditions present in a community
and was asked to recommend interven-
tion actions which would lessen the risks
to the residents. After lunch, the second
part of the session concentrated on deter-
minating the various degrees of damage
to real estate property caused by various

High School Thanks Abaco Club on Winding Bay

By Jennifer Hudson
Wishing to express his gratitude to the
Abaco Club on Winding Bay for its continual
support of Abaco Central High School, Prin-
cipal of the school, Mr, Kendris Hield, vis-
ited the Club on July 3 to present two plaques
of appreciation. Receiving the plaques were
Mr. Alberto Pirozzini, Managing Director,
and Mr. Stone McEwan, Public Relations
Since its inception, the Abaco Club has
reached out into the widespread community
in many different ways. One of these ways
has been to work hand in hand with the Ab-
aco Central High School during the tenure of
three different school Principals. On two oc-
casions the Club has utilized 40-50 students
of the school as golf caddies for their golf
tournaments. The Club is hoping that this
will become an ongoing part of their caddie

programme and plans are being fine tuned.
The Abaco Club has donated computers and
sponsored trophies for the school, assisted
with funds for Junior Junkanoo and recently
hosted a luncheon at the Abaco Club for high
achievers. Mr. McEwen was invited to be a
keynote speaker at a school function which
he deemed an honour.

Receiving the plaque on behalf of the staff
and management of the Abaco Club on Wind-
ing Bay, Mr. Pirozzini thanked the Principal,
Mr. Kendris Hield, as well as the teachers
and staff of the Abaco Central High School
for this special recognition.
Mr. Hield described the hotel hospitality
programme which he hopes to have in place
when the new school year begins in Septem-
ber. "It is my goal to create a hotel hospi-
tality training programme. I want to develop
a fully fledged programme for the island's
number one industry, tourism. We teach the
students to cook but we do not teach them
hotel management, kitchen practices or din-
ing service skills. The personnel and facili-

ties required for this course are already at the
school and we need to use these resources
more effectively. In addition to hotel hos-
pitality, programmes will also be offered in
cosmetology, electrical installation and car-
Mr. Mark Bethel, Food and Beverage Di-
rector at the Abaco Club, is presently inter-
viewing six school leavers from the school
with the hopes of actually recruiting three for
full time positions in the Food and Beverage
Department. "We are trying to recruit young
aspiring hoteliers from the island rather than
using imported talent. We like to get them
straight from school and groom them. Ap-
proximately 97 percent of the employees in
the Food and Beverage Department are from
Abaco." he stated.
