What next for Branville McCartney
What next for Branville McCartney

My mother's favourite cousin is someone she calls, "the most conceited person she ever knew." He was a larger than life man who practised regularly what he called his "killer smile."

Legend has it he would stand in front of the mirror and practise his swagger. He would stroke his chin and tune up his smile, the one that would "kill the ladies."

This little bit of family history is relevant only in as much as I am reminded of my cousin sometimes when people speak about Branville McCartney, member of parliament for Bamboo Town. Last year he resigned from the high profile job of Minister of State f ...

BOC expectations for London 2012 pt. 1

The Games of the 30th Olympiad are scheduled to take place in London, England, July 27-August 12 this year. The Bahamas Olympic Committee (BOC) is nearing its final preparation for the delegation that will travel to the United Kingdom for London 2012.
Secretary General Romell Knowles gave a rather comprehensive overview when we communicated recently. He says the BOC is impressed with the youth element. He ventured however, that The Bahamas has to hope for a wild card entry, for tennis participation. There is enthusiasm over the rather nice blend of the young talent and the veterans.
Shaunae Miller and Anthonique Strachan are the very young sprinters. Then, there are Sheniqua Ferguson, Nivea Smith and Cache Armbrister. The two veteran sprinters are Chandra Sturrup and Debbie McKenzie.
"We have two high school athletes achieving the 'A' standards, namely Anthonique Strachan and Shaunae Miller. This is perhaps the youngest team assembled. It's not long before the baton is handed over to Sheniqua and Nivea but they will be challenged by the young, talented presence of Shaunae and Anthonique. We think Chandra is an incredible athlete and is the Bahamian version of Merlene Ottey. Her accomplishments are to be celebrated and being a part of the Olympic team as a leader is invaluable because of her experience.
"Debbie, we all know, will rise to the occasion as an accomplished athlete. She is a true patriot and team leader. We again, are very fortunate that Debbie will be there to lead the way before turning over the baton to the young ladies who will do The Bahamas very proud. I'm sure, I'm very confident that the girls are in good hands. They are all competitive and have a passion for representing their country. They are all great ambassadors and will give us excellent representation," said Knowles.
What about the question mark regarding a proposed tennis team? There is not a straight path yet, to Bahamian tennis representation at the London 2012 event. Had Mark Knowles taken part in the last Davis Cup round, the situation would have been much clearer because of his world ranking.
"With respect to Mark, I am advised that there was a conflict in scheduling and Mark could not break his obligations. He really tried but was under obligations to his partner and sponsors. He was very remorseful and regrets not participating in Davis Cup. It should be mentioned that he is a true patriot and really regrets this most unfortunate circumstance. Further, The Bahamas might participate in the Olympics as a wildcard," disclosed the BOC secretary general.
Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association (BLTA) President Steve Turnquest is optimistic. He informed that names have been sent in. The men submitted are Jamaal Adderley, Marvin Rolle, Timothy Neely and Rodney Carey, along with Knowles.
The female names sent in are Simone Pratt, Kerrie Cartwright, Nikkita Fountain, Larikah Russell and Gabrielle Moxey. The final decision is up to the International Tennis Federation (ITF), according to Turnquest. The expectation is for that final verdict to come in from the ITF in the near future.
o In tomorrow's column, the BOC secretary general addresses other matters in his overview. To respond to this column, kindly contact Fred Sturrup at fredericksturrup@gmail.com.

Remarks by The Hon. Zhivargo S. Laing At The Grand Bahama Business Outlook 2011

It is this diversity that makes me say that Grand Bahama’s economic picture is spotty. While areas of the industrial sector, which rely primarily on clients outside of The Bahamas, are holding their own, despite the significant aftershocks of the recent global economic and financial crisis, the tourism and construction sectors continue to underperform. Tourism, however, has yet another spotty picture, since the cruise business has seen meaningful increases while gains in the stopover business remain marginal, if not flat.

Grand Bahama FNM candidate Peter Turnquest views IB student art exhibit at Lucaya International School

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Grand Bahama FNM Candidate Peter Turnquest, visited Lucaya International School to view the International Baccalaureate (IB) student Art exhibition for 2012.  The International Baccalaureate is a demanding and highly respected pre-college Diploma Programme. Students who choose to take the Art course must do a two year study which requires them to create a minimum of 12 pieces of studio work and a workbook reflecting a commitment to personal media experimentation, cultural and historical research, critical analysis and an ongoing investigation of a personal theme.
The students then host an exhibition, which acts as a concluding IB Art examination.  The six young ladies exhibiting this year showcased work in photography, print, modelling, paintings, origami and many other mediums.  The exhibition is open during school hours and "is a preface for the IB invigulaitor who is sent to examine the students work," said Julie Hoyle, LIS Art Teacher.
"I have to say I was genuinely impressed with the work," said Turnquest. "Each student took the time to explain the reason behind their choice of pieces and themes.  They were so confident in their explanations and the calibre of their work was of such a high standard, you forgot they were high school students."  The artists' work will stay on display for the remainder of the week as they prepare for the final examinations for the rest of the IB program.

Letter: The black bonnet situation

EDITOR, The Tribune.

On a daily basis, we all read insightful, intriguing, uproarious letters that comment on crime, politics and the like submitted to our local newspapers. While I agree it is an age-old forum for such opinions I do believe there is space for social commentary that does not fall in-between the lines of the aforementioned topics.

As such, I submit my comments regarding the black bonnet situation:

We've all seen them, driving through our streets, walking in the Mall, on line at the bank, on school pick-up, the grocery store, really everywhere, our ladies, intentionally out in public with the black bonnet on their heads.

If you are unsure what I mean, I am referring to t ...
