Ministry of Public Works, police prepare for back-to-school traffic

When the new school year begins on Monday, traffic on New Providence is expected to increase dramatically as parents of school-aged children try to navigate through the ongoing New Providence Road Improvement Project.
To assist in easing the flow of traffic, the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) is expected to deploy as many as 130 officers to deal with possible congestion in the capital Monday morning.
In total, about five schools will be affected by ongoing road works: C.I. Gibson Senior High, St. Augustine's College (SAC), Doris Johnson Senior High, Faith Temple School and C.R. Walker High School.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Dennis Sturrup of the RBPF Traffic Division said police are most concerned about congestion at the intersection of Prince Charles Drive.
During a road works tour yesterday, environmental specialist in the Ministry of Public Works, Shenique Albury, said work on Prince Charles Drive is progressing steadily.
"The works in this area are well advanced," she said. "We have been able to pave since July, and we're working our way west along Prince Charles Drive. Every area has its own timeline, and what we're trying to get people to understand is that we're working in sections.
"The first section was between Pine Barren Road and the junction of Fox Hill Road. The second section is between Pine Barren and College Garden Road."
The ministry has designed routes intended to provide easy access to the schools.
Those traveling to C.I. Gibson are encouraged to use the Wulff Road round-about, and later Samana Drive, once its reopened in the near future.
Those traveling westbound to SAC should use Fox Hill Road via Springfield Road.
People traveling east should use Prince Charles Drive as usual, but note that only local access will be given.
Those going to Doris Johnson will be granted westbound access on Prince Charles Drive.
Those traveling east along Prince Charles Drive can take the detour through Beatrice Avenue to Fox Hill Road and then go back onto Prince Charles Drive.
Access to those trying to reach Faith Temple can reach the school heading west on Prince Charles Drive through Pine Barren Road.
For those headed to C.R. Walker, the recommended route is via Market Street at School Lane, or Blue Hill Road to Hay Street, then onto Market Street and School Lane.
In addition, works officials advise all pedestrians to heed warnings on work sites, and stay outside work zones as much as possible.

Police say he was abducted by three men from his Seaview Acres residence.  The victim is described as having a medium brown complexion, of slim build and stands at 5'9".
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Ingraham or with information regarding the circumstances surrounding his disappearance is asked to contact police at 919, 911, the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991, 502-9910 or Crime Stoppers at 328-TIPS.
Meantime, police are also requesting the public's help in locating a missing teenager.
Police said 14-year-old Shavonne Hinds, of East Street, was last seen around 6 p.m. on Friday.
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Hinds is asked to contact police at the numbers listed above.
A picture of Hinds was unavailable yesterday.

AG's Office drops attempted murder charges

The Office of the Attorney General has abandoned the trial of a man accused of injuring another man and a little boy in a drive-by shooting.
Renardo Minns, 21, faced two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life in connection with a June 14, 2010 shooting at a Pinewood Gardens car wash that injured Tyson Deveaux and Anthon Whyms, four, who was shot in the head.  He was also accused of endangering the life of Anthon's mother, Abigail Whyms.
Police suspected that Deveaux was the intended target of the shooting.  The attack occurred exactly one week after Deveaux was freed from prison on a murder charge.  Deveaux was charged with the April 19, 2009 murder of Marlon "Marley" Smith.  He was fatally shot during an ambush at his Pinewood Gardens home.
Supreme Court Justice Vera Watkins empaneled the jury for Minns' trial on Monday.  However, all of the complainants were no-shows for the proceedings.
Watkins advised Minns yesterday that he could be prosecuted on the charges at a future date.
Linda Evans was the prosecutor and V. Alfred Gray represented Minns, who was on bail.

Statement by US Ambassador Nicole Avant: Reaffirming the resilience of the human spirit on September 11

On September 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people from more than 90 nations perished in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  On Sunday, the United States will mark the 10th anniversary of those attacks that brought so much pain to thousands of families.  It will be a time to honor all those that we've lost, and a time to reaffirm the strength and resilience of the human spirit.
President Obama took inspiration from the victims and survivors of terrorism by establishing September 11 as a National Day of Service.   Last year, 11.5 million people -- including the president and First Lady Michelle Obama -- participated in the day of service, helping charitable organizations and community groups throughout the United States.
On Friday, the U.S. Embassy responded to President Obama's call to service by breathing new life into the children's corner at the G.K. Symonette Library in Yellow Elder Gardens and through a U.S. Coast Guard-led beach clean-up on Jaws Beach.  In addition, on Sunday, the U.S. flags on the U.S. Embassy Compound and at my Liberty Overlook residence will also be flown at half-staff in memory of the events ten years ago.
The 10th anniversary of September 11 is a moment where all societies can reflect on the enduring strength of the human spirit and recognize our vital partnerships. In doing so, we send a unified message: Terrorism will not prevail.
On behalf of President Obama and the entire U.S. Mission, I would like to express my appreciation to the government and the people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas for being a steadfast partner in reducing the threat of terrorism through your commitment to core democratic values, counterterrorism and border security cooperation.

US Embassy marks the 10th anniversary of September 11th with two community service projects

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Ten years ago on September 11, nearly 3,000 people from more than 90 nations perished in a terrorist attack targeting the United States.  U.S. President Obama took inspiration from the victims and survivors of this tragic event by establishing September 11 as a National Day of Service.  Last year, 11.5 million people -- including the president and First Lady Michelle Obama -- participated in the day of service, helping charitable organizations and community groups throughout the United States.   
In response to U.S. President Barack Obama's call to service, U.S. Embassy Nassau marked the anniversary of September 11th with two community service projects on New Providence.  On the morning of September 9th, The U.S. Embassy's Chargè d'affaires, Mr. John Dinkelman, visited the G.K. Symonette Library to donate a collection of over 400 new Scholastic books for young readers as well as bookshelves, a rug, brightly colored pillows and a large nursery rhyme mural to brighten up the children's corner.  
The donation was a way for the U.S. Embassy to give back to the community of Yellow Elder Gardens by creating a bright, vibrant space where children can explore the world through reading.  On hand for the donation were second graders from C.W. Sawyer Primary School and Ms. Dorcas Bower from the Ministry of Education.
