Rockets, Bulls show interest in Rony Cadot

Bahamian basketball standout Jean Rony Cadot is increasing his chances of making it to the National Basketball Association (NBA).
The 6' 5" guard will work out with the Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls in a few weeks. In this Nassau Guardian exclusive, Cadot explains that it has always been his dream to play professional basketball.
"I got a call at the end of my senior season here at Texas Christian University (TCU)," said Cadot. "I got a call from the Chicago Bulls first. That was at the end of the season and then one from the Houston Rockets about a week or two weeks ago. I am scheduled to work out with the Rockets at the end of this month and I have an opportunity to train with the Chicago Bulls in the middle of June. I won't say it was hard but I know it was not easy (to get noticed). I feel as though I was putting in the right amount of work during the season on and off the court. All my hard work made for better results and made it easier for something like this to happen."
Even though he is being looked at by two NBA franchises, Cadot said he is still weighing his options. The Rockets organization is based just minutes away from where Cadot stays, and might be a perfect fit for the graduating senior at TCU. In fact, Cadot likes the Rockets' overall look. Of course, he is not counting any team out, but said, "I see more of an opportunity there (Rockets), but I feel like I can contribute to any team. If given the opportunity I would be productive."
The Bulls were the number one seeded team in the east going into the NBA playoffs this year. However, they were eliminated in the first round by the Philadelphia 76ers. The Rockets did not advance to the playoffs.
Cadot knows that the transition from college to the professional ranks will not be easy. At TCU, he averaged 11 points per game for the Horned Frogs. He played in 33 games in his senior year and was named to the All-conference team. Cadot had the
second highest field goal percentage for the Horned Frogs this year. It wasn't an easy road for the former C.V. Bethel Stingrays player though. He thanked God for blessing him with the talent and paving the way for him.
He said: "It was tough, especially coming from a situation where my family was not able to provide me with the support I needed. I know that they wanted to but they were not able to. I had to start from scratch and climb my way up when I got over here in the United States and just chase my dreams. I was just willing to do whatever I had to do, as far as being successful on the basketball court and taking care of my school work, is concerned. It was a tough process but I pulled through. I prayed to God and I knew that at the end of the day, He would help me, and He did that.
"Basketball over here is more organized and it provides the opportunities needed to be exposed so it adds pressure. Over here you can play on a high level where people can see you. Back at home sometimes the talent is overlooked and it is not appreciated. You don't have the right amount of support and there aren't enough people pushing you. I knew I needed to get out where I could be seen. I was able to be seen and I took off from there. I took full advantage of it and picked up where I started from, at home."
Cadot hopes to bring energy, leadership and maturity to whatever organization he signs with. He said he will do his best to ensure that his team wins. As far as his condition is concerned, he said he's not where he wants to be right now, but plans to improve before the training sessions start.
The guard is also expected to return home and play for the national team at this summer's Centrobasket Championships.

The poles melt, we drown

In 1982, the less than one-year-old Caribbean small island state, Antigua and Barbuda, raised the proposition at the United Nations that Antarctica should be regarded as a global common similar to the deep-sea bed and should be managed by the UN for the good of mankind.
Few could understand why a small island-state would want to raise a matter that seemed to be "big country politics". Today, as "polar ice caps melt and small islands drown", the reasons for Antigua and Barbuda's concern in 1982 have become very apparent.
In 1982, arrangements for the governance of Antarctica lay exclusively in the hands of the signatory states to the Antarctic Treaty System. It was an exclusive arrangement between 12 countries. Of the 12, seven -- Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom -- have territorial claims, sometimes overlapping (as in the case of Britain and Argentina in the region of the Falklands/Malvinas islands). The U.S. and Russia also maintain a "basis of claim".
As matters turned out, Antigua and Barbuda was too recent an independent nation and lacked the resources to continue to press the case for the UN declaring Antarctica "a global common" that should be managed by the UN for the good of all nations. It was left to Malaysia to take up the cudgels.
In 1983, Malaysia argued at the UN that Antarctica should be a global heritage similar to that of the high seas and any benefits derived from Antarctica should be shared by all and not only the exclusive right of certain vested countries and parties. Malaysia also argued that the pristine "Antarctic environment be protected and preserved".
The seven countries with claims to Antarctica were as unhappy with the Malaysia proposal, as they were with Antigua and Barbuda's aborted first raising of the issue. Nonetheless, Malaysia garnered sufficient support to ensure that until 1996, the question of Antarctica was discussed at the UN. But, in 2005 it dropped off the UN agenda.
There is clear evidence now that the worry about preserving the pristine condition of Antarctica was very valid when it was raised in the UN in 1982. Human activity in the area and climate change in Antarctica and in the Arctic are adversely affecting small island states and vulnerable coastal areas of larger countries.
This point was well made at a conference most people would say small island states in tropical climates had no business attending. The International Polar Year Conference 2012, under the theme, "From Knowledge to Action", was held in Montreal, Canada, from April 22-27. Organized by several partners, especially the World Meteorological Organization, Ronald Jean Jumeau, ambassador for climate change for the small island state of Seychelles, made a compelling argument for the continued active concern by small island states for what is happening in Antarctica.
His remarks at the Montreal Conference have particular relevance because small island states and developing countries with vulnerable coasts (such as Belize and Guyana) appear to have lost the toe-hold at the UN for discussing Antarctica and the effects on them of melting glaciers. In 2005, the UN agreed, in its First Committee, that Antarctica would not be placed on the agenda of the UN General Assembly. It hasn't been on the agenda since then. But, it should be.
Here are Jumeau's remarks on the effects of climate change in the two poles: "The worse the situation gets in the Arctic and the Antarctic, the more worried we islanders get. For the more your ice melts in the north and the south, and on the mountain tops and in the glaciers of the world, the more our world, in tiny Seychelles just four degrees south of the equator and in the rest of the Indian Ocean and in the Pacific, the Atlantic and the Caribbean as well, the more our world goes under. As the poles melt, we drown".
He pointed out: "The melting ice at the poles is not just contributing to sea level rise, it is affecting the oceans as drivers of the world's climate as well. The seas around our islands, some of which are the lowest land on earth, are rising, and coastal erosion is getting worse and worse to the extent that some islands may be swept away before the waves cover them and wipe them off the face of the earth".
The ambassador ended by saying: "The poles' global linkages make the Arctic and the Antarctic a common, a global, heritage of the whole community of man and womankind".
And, if it might be felt that the Seychelles ambassador's warnings are self-serving, this is what Ban-ki-Moon, the UN secretary-general, said about the situation in 2007: "Antarctica is on the verge of a catastrophe - for the world." He offered figures to support his claim: "glaciers on King George Island have shrunk by 10 percent, while some in Admiralty Bay have retreated by 25 kilometers; the 87-kilometer "Larsen B ice sheet" collapsed several years ago and disappeared within weeks; the entire Western Antarctic Ice Shelf is at risk - it is all floating ice, one fifth of the entire continent. If it broke up, sea levels could rise by six meters or 18 feet." Since then, matters have gotten worse.
Work is being done by small island states to raise attention to the growing threat to their existence, and to the dangers posed to their productive areas and human habitats - both food security and human dislocation are real issues.
This matter should be forcefully pressed at the forthcoming Rio+20 Sustainable Development Conference in the interest of all small island states and vulnerable coastal areas. It should also vigorously be pushed back on to the UN agenda however resistant may be those countries that regard Antarctica as their exclusive preserve.

Murder case to continue with or without defendant

An accused murderer will be tried in his absence if he does not show up for the start of his trial.
Supreme Court Justice Roy Jones said yesterday that every effort will be made to ensure that Ryan Omar Butler is present when the trial begins on May 21.
However, Jones made it clear that the trail would proceed with, or without, Butler.
Jones issued an arrest warrant for Butler earlier this month when he failed to appear for a fixture hearing.
Butler's co-accused Anthony Charles Hall was also a no-show for the hearing. Jones revoked Hall's bail after it was discovered that he was not complying with his reporting conditions.
The men are accused of the December 2002 murder of Jean Claude Louissaint, who was killed during a home-invasion armed robbery.
Last month, police named Butler as a person of interest in the March 24 shooting death of Rolando Smith at Ridgeland Park.
Murrio Ducille represents Hall and Dorsey McPhee appears for Butler.

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF
Gloria Miller
A TIME TO BE BORN
Gloria Marie was born to the parentage of Joslyn
and Priscilla Jarrett on the sixth day of May, 1955.
She was the first child from this union. "Glo", as
she was affectionately called, "glowed" in every
sense of the word. She had an excellent spirit.
She was soft-spoken, loving, humble and although
strong-willed, she always had a sweet smile and a
pleasant disposition.

A TIME TO SOW
Glo's early education began at St. Mary's pre-school and continued at Oakes Field Primary which at that time was called the Base Road School. She then matriculated to J. F. K. Secondary School which was located at the site of the present H. O. Nash Junior High School. Glo always wanted to be a teacher and from early childhood she would sit her siblings, the cat and the dog down and then proceeds to "teach" them. Her love for teaching pushed her to enroll at the Teachers' Training College (now the second campus for C. C. Sweeting Secondary School). She was determined to achieve excellence in her chosen field.

Glo met Mr. Wellington Edison Miller, her "Androsian stallion", and a beautiful courtship ensued. "Welly" was indeed her soul mate. He was quiet, loving, faithful, reliable and very much in love with her. Welly strummed his box guitar and sang his way into Glo's heart. They were joined in matrimony on July 30, 1977. God blessed this union with three sons: Terru, Wellington Jr. (deceased), and Tristan Miller.

In 1978, Glo was transferred to Marsh Harbour, Abaco along with her husband, who was now an Immigration Officer. She was posted to Spring City Central High School where she taught until 1980. In 1980, she was redeployed to New Providence where she taught at S. C. McPherson Junior High school for a short time before being transferred with her husband to Inagua where she taught at the Inagua All Age School from 1980 - 1982. She was once again transferred to New Providence and in late 1982 she was redeployed to the Columbus Primary School.

At Columbus Primary, Glo headed the Remediation Program. It was here that she helped to organize the "Garden Club" which she used as a tool to effectively teach her students who were mainly kinesthetic learners. Her hard work resulted in her being blessed with the title Teacher of the Year for the Northwestern District while at Columbus Primary School.

The need to perfect the gift with which God had blessed her resulted in Glo enrolling in the College of Saint Benedict. She attended classes at the campus here in Nassau and then made the sacrifice of leaving her young family in order to complete required studies at the Minnesota Campus. In May of 1990, she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education and proudly returned home to her family.

Glo was a teacher "par excellence" and never missed an opportunity to hone her skills. In the final stage of her career, she developed a special interest in children who had long stays in the hospital; their education became very important to her. As a result, in December 2007, she accepted the post of Principal of the Hospital School and went on to excel in that field.

Glo's desire to use all the talents that God gave her was not limited to the classroom - it was exhibited in her role as a loving, dedicated, caring and faithful wife and mother and more importantly in her love for God and faithful stewardship to her church. Glo loved the Lord. On September 12, 1982, she and Welly joined New Covenant Baptist Church one week after the church's doors opened. At that time it was located in the Chicken Unlimited building on Mackey Street. She was faithful to her church. A teacher by profession, Glo was immediately drawn to the Sunday school where she would work her way up to become the second person to be elected Sunday school superintendent. She also had a beautiful and melodious voice and loved to sing. As a result she immediately joined the choir and would later be elected President of the Senior Choir. Later, Glo would coordinate the New Covenant Early Learning Centre, join the Executive Council of the church and along with her husband, serve as co-chairman of the Marriage Ministry for four years. She was faithful to all of her assignments!

Some people have green thumbs but Glo had green fingers and toes! She could take a sprig and make it bloom. She was always in her garden - planting and singing to her flowers, the grass and the trees. Her garden is beautiful because of the songs, sun, rain and fertilizer. Her yard won the Yard of the Year Award in 2007 as a result of her gardening skills and creativity. She was a member of the Horticulture Club and the Perky Garden Club.

A TIME TO REAP
Years of dedicated service in the field of Education and faithful stewardship to her church landed Glo many awards. Some of them include:

1991 - Honored for Outstanding and Dedicated Service to the Sunday School of New Covenant Baptist Church.
2000 - honored by the Young Adults Ministry for her dedication and faithfulness.
2001 - Awarded for faithful and dedicated service to the Senior Choir of New Covenant Baptist Church.
2003 - Awarded by the Ministry of Education Primary Principal's Association for long and dedicated service.
2003 - Awarded by The Ministry of Education for special contributions as a writer of indigenous textbooks for the Bahamas.
2004 - Honored by Sunday School of New Covenant for dedication.
March 2010 - Awarded Ministry of Education's Special School Administrators Award for Principals of Hospital Schools
2004 - Along with her husband, she was awarded by Marriage Ministry of New Covenant for being most unselfish couple.
2011 - Honored by Youth Department of New Covenant for outstanding work.
2011 - Honored by The National Baptist Association for longstanding and dedicated service.
1997 - She was named Mother of The Year by her church.

A TIME FOR WAR
There will come a time in all our lives when we have to go to battle for what we hold dear. Glo strongly believed that faith that was not tested could not be trusted. She was therefore ready for the battle of her life. She began to feel peculiarities in her body that told her that something was wrong. She attended physicians locally and abroad and in February 1999, she was diagnosed with lupus. This predator began to nip away at Glo's health. Year after year her body deteriorated. Her struggle to enjoy more well days was great as she was in and out of the hospital. Yet, her faith in God remained steadfast and her spirit grew stronger. Her valiant struggle became a living testimony of unwavering faith. As the years passed, the lupus took its toll and she could no longer do many of the things that she enjoyed. She was no longer able to sing or work in her garden. Her husband and sons formed a triangle of love, support and comfort around her through the painful and sleepless nights. When asked how she was doing, Glo would always declared, "It is well." This was a testimony not to her physical health but to the condition of her immortal soul. Through all the changing seasons of her life, Glo never failed to give God praise.

Turks turn the tables on COB

It certainly didn't take long for the Turks and Caicos under-23 nationals to redeem themselves.
They salvaged the second game of a two-match international series against The College of The Bahamas (COB) men's soccer team, winning the finale 2-1 yesterday at COB. The Turks squad scored early in the game, padded their lead to 2-0 early in the second half, and held off a late comeback attempt by COB.
In terms of goals scored, the international series ended in a 3-3 deadlock.
"These guys are definitely making progress," said Turks' Head Coach Ian Hurdle. "Both teams appear to be evenly matched, and it was a good battle both days. Our guys have lacked coaching from a young age - some of them just actually learnt how to dribble a soccer ball. We're taking a lot of raw potential and trying to mold it, but we can see it coming together," he added.
Evans Jean broke through for the Turks squad in the 17th minute. Fred Dorvil made it 2-0 Turks with a shot in the 49th minute, and after letting quite a few scoring opportunities slip by them, the COB Caribs finally got on the scoreboard with a goal in the 66th minute. Dwayne Beneby got his head on a beautiful goal post cross and pushed the ball past the Turks goalie.
"It was a good game... we just came out lackadaisical, and that's what cost us in the end," said Beneby. "It was wonderful exposure for us though. Having the Turks and Caicos come down was exactly what we needed. We needed more experience and they provided that for us. We feel like this series confirmed the fact that we need to work on our finishing. We felt that we had good build-up to strong plays, but [we weren't] finishing in the end. It's a little disappointing, but we got a win in the first game so we're satisfied with that."
Caribs' Head Coach Vandyke Bethel felt they just came out lacking energy.
"I told the guys that we can't live in yesterday's glory... we have to live for the moment today, and that didn't happen. As you can see, we didn't come out with any energy," said Bethel. "These guys are still learning, and they have to learn how to come out and be consistent. We came out sluggish in the first half, and at the beginning of the second half, they made some simple mistakes and that cost us.
"Hopefully as we continue to develop the program. They will continue to learn and be more soccer intelligent. I have to give credit to TCI (Turks and Caicos Islands) though. They came out a lot more hungrier than we did and it showed. They came at us hard and it paid off for them. We had some opportunities that we should have converted, but at the end of the day, the guys just have to be a bit more hungry. They have to push a lil harder and you just saw an example of a team which wanted it more," he added.
Last year, the Turks and Caicos national squad lost a 10-0 aggregate to The Bahamas over two matches. Hurdle said that they obviously still have a lot of work to do moving forward.
"We had spurts for about 10-15 minutes where the guys actually followed what we were trying to get them to do. Overall, we actually felt we played better in the first game than we did in the second game - we just got the result today," said Hurdle. "I think that we need to build on the success that we had here, and take that further," he added.
Both squads welcomed the opportunity to compete against each other, and are looking forward to future encounters.

Bail revoked for numerous murder suspects

A judge yesterday revoked a murder suspect's bail for reportedly tampering with his electronic monitoring device.
Gary Leon, who is accused of the February 2011 beating death of Jason Brown at Homestead Street, was released on $20,000 bail on September 15, on the condition that his movements were monitored.
Leon reportedly used foil to deactivate the GPS-enabled tracking system.
Senior Justice Jon Isaacs ordered Leon remanded to Her Majesty's Prison during a bail revocation hearing.
Meanwhile, two other murder suspects are now back in custody for defying a court's order to sign the bail register at the police station.
Justice Roy Jones learned that the men were not signing in when they failed to appear for a status hearing on April 2.
Kevin Hart, who is charged with the January 2003 murder of Kendal Braynen, and Anthony Charles Hall, who is accused of December 2002 murder of Jean Claude Louissaint, are now back in custody.
Justice Jones issued an arrest warrant for Hall's co-accused, Ryan Omar Butler, who is still at large. Last month, police named Butler as a person of interest in the March 24 shooting death of Rolando Smith at Ridgeland Park.

Abaco man charged with murder

A 38-year-old Abaco man was arraigned in a magistrate's court yesterday in connection to the murder of Wendal Miller, who was stabbed in the neck last week.
Rodriguez Jean Pierre, of Charles Boo Yard, appeared before Deputy Chief Justice Carolita Bethell where he was formally charged with killing 59-year-old Miller.
Pierre was not required to enter a plea.
According to initial police reports, Miller was found bleeding from a neck wound on Saturday, near the Road Traffic Department on Crockett Drive and Bay Street in Marsh Harbour, Abaco around 2:30 p.m.
Police said he got into a fight at a home in the slum community of The Mudd.
He was with his friends when the altercation took place, police reported.
Prosecutor Ercel Dorsett told the court that he intends to proceed by way of a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI), which means that the case will be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court.
Before the case was adjourned, Pierre, who was not represented by an attorney, expressed concern that he was not able to afford an attorney. However, Bethell explained that a crown attorney will likely be appointed to him during the proceedings at the Supreme Court level.
The matter was adjourned until June 15, at which time the VBI is expected to be presented.
