Volunteerism in sports

In the Prime Minister's address on crime, he invited the populace to increase the level of volunteerism, something he felt would reduce the crime level. People from many sectors in The Bahamas have been and continue to be involved in volunteerism.
You name it - Rotary, Kiwanis, fraternities, the church, Yellowbirds, The Cancer Society, etc. Much has been done and continues to be done by volunteers in The Bahamas. There is however a whole body of volunteerism which has not gone unnoticed. We are speaking about the sporting community which strives on volunteers.
At the closing ceremony of this summer's IAAF World Championships numerous volunteers were at center stage on the field. We often forget how many volunteers are needed to pull off a national, regional, or international competition, much less to carry on a continual program of bringing athletes from the introduction to a sport, to them becoming world champions. Today we salute those unsung heroes who have made a difference in sports in The Bahamas.
The School System
It is said that most things are learned in school. Most athletes have been introduced to sports through their schools. From the track and field perspective we single out Andrea Lockhart of Oakes Field Primary who was instrumental in the start of Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie in track and field. About 55 years ago, Dr. John Carey was instrumental in the athletic start of former Member of Parliament and Olympian Leslie Miller at Eastern Junior School.
Numerous world class athletes can trace their humble beginnings to somebody in the school system that recognized their talent and encouraged them to pursue sports further.
Bahamas Association of Certified Officials (BACO)
Andrea Lockhart became a member of the Bahamas Association of Athletic Officials (BACO) of which Deacon Leviticus Adderley was a driving force. This organization is now headed by Ralf McKinney and assists numerous groups in staging road races throughout The Bahamas, in addition to their regular obligation of officiating at all Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations events as well as numerous other organization's events.
The Club System
There are the numerous clubs throughout the country through which athletes are guided and hone their competitive skills. No athletes who won medals for The Bahamas this year, or any previous year, could do it without the guidance of somebody in a school or club.
In the early years of track and field clubs like St. Bernards, The Southerners, St. George's followed by the Pioneers' Sporting Club, The Ambassadors, and The Bain Town Flyers, to name only a few, made a significant impact on the sporting and cultural life of The Bahamas. Some of the coaches like Henry Crawford, Charlie Wright, and D'ynza Burrows were legendary and contributed to the development of numerous national and international level athletes.
Volunteerism was the 'name of the game' with them. Fast forward to today where there are about 20 track and field clubs in The Bahamas which monitor the progress of our upcoming athletes. Many of them hold their own track and field meets which are heavily subscribed by athletes. Each of these clubs have numerous volunteers who give of their time, and occasionally resources, to ensure the success of the athletes.
Parents are a significant factor in the success of numerous athletes and clubs. Sometimes they act as just transportation to practice and sometimes they are a significant part of the clubs, whether they are coaches or part of the organizational structure. There are numerous parents throughout The Commonwealth of The Bahamas who give yeoman service to the sport.
The Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations (BAAA)
This is the organization given the mandate by the international body, the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF), to develop and promote Road Running, Cross Country, Mountain Running, and track and field throughout The Bahamas. The BAAA will celebrate its' 60th anniversary on May 6, 2012. The organization's initial membership included president Alfred Francis Adderley, Cyril Richardson, Joseph Garfunkle, Edward Mitchell, Reginald Farrington, Fred Moultrie, Reginald Robertson, Kendal Isaacs, Cecil V. Bethel, Gerald Cash, Randol Fawkes, and Orville Turnquest.
The presidents who succeeded Adderley were Cyril Richardson, Harold Munnings, Paul Adderley, Levi Gibson, Sir Arlington Butler, Reverend Enoch Backford, Winston Cooper, Dr. Bernard Nottage, Alpheus Finlayson, Foster Dorsett, Desmond Bannister, Mike Sands and Curt Hollingsworth (Interim).
From its inception, the organization has been defined by volunteers who have worked untiringly to make it one of the premier sports federations in the country and in the region. As the BAAA moves into its' 60th anniversary and London Olympics year, it is imperative that more volunteers, in addition to the elected members are needed to fulfill its mandate. The volunteers can be to the local clubs or the BAAA.
We have members of BACO who have officiated in regional and area competitions and look forward to an increase in the number of members of BACO and hope that one day soon, one of its members will soon qualify to officiate in the World Championships and Olympic Games. Funding is a critical area so persons who adept at those skills are in high demand. Then there are those who are adept at organization. They are needed in every organization.
The BAAA has had athletes win Olympic and World Championships gold medals and coaches who coached at the highest levels. We have had two Bahamians, Alpheus Finlayson and Pauline Davis-Thompson, who have been elected to the Council of the IAAF, the world's governing body of track and field. In the process, the organization has been influential in the lives of many young persons, in and outside the inner city, who would have been left by the wayside and may have pursued a life of crime otherwise.
Next year will be a significant year for Bahamian track and field. Volunteers are definitely needed for the organization to do what we all know is possible. If you have some extra time or are looking forward to a rewarding experience, please call the BAAA office at 325 4433 or e-mail us at

The 1970s showcased speed demon Turner

There is a long list of speed merchants of Bahamian baseball. In the early decades, players like Tyrone McGregor, Lou Adderley and Basil 'Slick' Burrows set the pace on the base paths during Bahamas Baseball Association (BBA) games.
The 1970s however produced a special set of artists, skilled in getting from first to second, to third and home plate very quickly. It was a fearless lot, those speedsters trotted out by the top teams. Roosevelt 'Bruso' Turner of Del Jane (the organization known at times also as St. Pauli Girls Barons and Holsten Knights) was arguably the best. Turner also played for Beck's Beer.
He won the league scoring titles from 1972 to 1978 with the exception of the one year, 1977. In winning his six scoring titles, the first two for Beck's, Turner hit the 50 runs scored mark four times, his highest being 55 in 1975 for Del Jane. He had 50 in 1972 for Beck's, 53 in 1976 for Holsten Knights and 54 in 1978, also for Holsten.
However, his Holsten teammate Eddie Ford scored 58 in 1977. That mark is considered to be the all-time record. Jayson Moxey won the runs scored title in 1971 with 19 and Anthony Smith won in 1970 with 15. In the stolen bases department, Turner again separated himself from his peers. He won four stolen bases crowns (1972, 1973, 1974 and 1977). His 48 in 1972 is thought to be a record.
The 1970s also produced two pure speed specialists. The Schlitz Beer Franchise (also 100 Pipers and Bahamian Lumber) sort of took a page out of the book of Charlie Finley who owned the Oakland Athletics of the American League. Finley who was known for novelty tactics, once signed a track star named Herb Washington, just to steal bases. Washington never had an at-bat or played anywhere in the field. He was called into the game exclusively to pinch-run. Washington's career did not last too long because he had no baseball background.
During the 1974 and 1975 seasons, he stole 31 bases in 48 attempts and scored 33 times. He was never a big factor and Finley soon got tired of the exploration and let Washington go. Schlitz though, had Gordon Farrington and Anthony 'Skeebo' Roberts. They were different from Washington. Both Farrington and Roberts understood baseball.
Nevertheless, they were asked primarily to generate runs by stealing bases. It was an exciting time when they reached first base. Everybody in the park knew they were going to attempt a steal of second and if they got there, it was a try for third. They made for an added dimension of excitement to the 1970s.
Then of course, there were the regular starters around the league with speed, players like Jayson Moxey, Richard Lockhart, Eddie Ford, Lorenzo Lockhart, Ron Smith and Anthony Huyler. None of them were as successful however, as Turner. He was the biggest threat on base. Indeed, Roosevelt Turner was the speed king of Bahamian baseball in the 1970s. The statistics indicate as much.

Another delay in murder trial

The murder trial of Phillip McCartney has been hit by another delay.
McCartney is accused of the August 13, 2010 beating death of Chrishanda Swain.  She was last seen alive with a man who had given her a ride from a nightclub on Soldier Road.  Hours later, Swain's partially naked body was found on a track road off Faith Avenue.
Presiding Justice Bernard Turner on January 19 dismissed the jury and held private discussions between Jillian Williams, the prosecutor, and McCartney's lawyer Romona Farquharson.
Farquharson asked for the jury to be excused after prosecution witness Patrina Rolle revealed during cross-examination that she had attended an identification parade and picked out someone.  Rolle never mentioned the police lineup, neither did the prosecutor ask her about one during her direct evidence.
Rolle, who was Swain's cousin, and another cousin, Lekeisha Lockhart, accompanied Swain to the club, according to the evidence.  Rolle and Lockhart were dropped off at a home in Pinewood Gardens by a man who picked them up as they walked home, the court heard.  The man was supposed to take Swain to her home, which was about a seven to 10 minute walk away.
Yesterday afternoon, Turner delivered a ruling with respect to the private discussions before the jury was called in.  However, the case could not proceed because Rolle was not present.
Turner did not agree with a request by Williams to interpose another witness in Rolle's absence.
The hearing continues today at 11 a.m.
McCartney is on remand at Her Majesty's Prisons.

Ruling may prompt change to Employment Act

A recent decision by the Industrial Tribunal that suggested workers may be entitled to more paid vacation may prompt the government to clarify the Employment Act, Minister of Labour and National Insurance Shane Gibson said yesterday.
In an August 28 ruling, President of the Industrial Tribunal Harrison Lockhart made a number of recommendations about vacation entitlement as outlined in the Employment Act.
Lockhart ruled that instead of two weeks of vacation time equating to 10 working days and three weeks to 15 working days, two weeks should equal 14 working days and three weeks 21 working days.
Gibson said the ruling was "interesting".
He said the law may need to specify in days how much paid vacation time a worker is entitled to.
He said he would wait to see the outcome of an appeal before he could say what implications the ruling will have on the workforce.
"Depending on what happens at the end of the day with the appeal's process we would have to make a decision as to whether or not amendments to the law are necessary to specify days rather than weeks," Gibson said.
"I know in some industrial agreements it is spelt out where you are entitled to 'x' amount of days after the first year rather than weeks.
"In the law I think it is spelt out in weeks rather than days, so if it means bringing clarity and amending the laws, we may have to look at that."
The Tribunal's ruling arose in relation to a dispute between The Central Bank of The Bahamas and the Union of Central Bankers.
After the ruling, the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation (BCCEC) said it had "grave concerns" over the issue.
"We are further seeking legal advice on the matter and expect to launch a swift, definitive and tangible response in due course, utilizing all options of recourse available to us under the law," said the group's President Chester Cooper in a statement.

Some gripped by fear as crime rages on

Driving down the fear of crime and reducing violence in the country were major initiatives of Police Commissioner Ellison Greenslade's policing plans in 2012 and 2013.
In the 2013 plan, Greenslade said reoffending criminals out on bail was a major challenge for the country.
"Our citizens continue to tell us of their concerns and fears because of the commission of crimes," the report said.
"Therefore, we will spare no effort in launching multifaceted initiatives which together will positively reduce the level of offending in our communities and give assurances of safety to our citizens."
The country ended 2013 with the murder count standing at 120, up from the 111 recorded in 2012 and down from the 127 recorded in 2011.
No crime statistics have been provided since July, but authorities have continued to say that crime overall is down.
The fear of crime is difficult to gauge, but authorities have also said repeatedly that this fear is too high as is the level of violent crimes in The Bahamas.
Many citizens continue to speak of that fear.
Ana Lockhart, who was robbed outside a Bank of The Bahamas ATM in December, said she was left traumatized by the ordeal.
Lockhart, whose name has been changed to protect her identity, said she is living in fear, afraid to drive to the food store, the ATM, and even to work.
"I'm living in fear," she said.
"I've had to pray. I've spoken to people about it and they've told me that I need to go for counseling.
"I had an incident last week where I had to go out and I went to a flower store to get some flowers for my grandmother's grave.
"And the flower store door, once it closes it locks. So a patron was coming in and she came at me really quickly to catch the door and I almost had a coronary in there.
"When I got to my car I just broke down crying because I was like 'God, I cannot live like this. I cannot live in fear'."
Tina Ferguson said her home was broken into five times within two months in 2012.
Ferguson, whose name was also changed, said she went on vacation with her two children in July 2012 and left her neighbor to watch her home.
She said her neighbor thwarted two separate house break-ins that month.
Ferguson said when she came back home in August she met all of her and her children's belongings in black plastic bags in the front room.
She said it looked like the thieves broke into her home again, but had to flee.
In August 2012, she said her home was broken into again.
"The last time they took everything," she said. "They took my son's games, my daughter's computer, even my bed."
After that, she said, she could not sleep in her home anymore and moved out.
Recently, Prime Minister Perry Christie spoke of his concerns about widespread crime fears and the decision by some people to adjust their lifestyles as a result.
On Monday, Christie unveiled initiatives intended to escalate the crime fight.
They come ahead of Greenslade's 2014 policing plan, which is mandatory under law.
