Andrew G. Deveaux Sr., 51

 
OBITUARY
Andrew G. Deveaux
May 15th 1960 - March 31st, 2012
 
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and he delighted in his way though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand." (Psalms 37: 23-24)
It was a joyous occasion May 15, 1960 in the home of Perlina Wright in the picturesque settlement of Devil's Point Cat Island, when a baby boy was born to Perlina Wright and Norris Deveaux, handsome, yes! Bouncing baby he was not.  He was christened Andrew George Deveaux. Sr.,
Andrew, the second of three sons brought joy to his family and friends in his neighbor-hood. He received his early education at the Devils Point All-Aged School and later the Old Bight Senior High School.  Andrew was a charmer and a heart-breaker of many girls he outwitted several of them, yet He was an ardent student and kept focus on his studies.
His childhood friends Sham Burrows, Charles Smith and Octavia Mackey, were always up to mischief.  However, his grandmother Rapheletha Brown ruled him and his younger brother Inspector Nathan Mackey with an iron fist. They had to do chores that all family Island children did. Andrew was light skinned, he was afraid of the sun, so whenever they had to help their grand mother with the field chores he always choose the easy ones.  He was hard working and loved to go fishing and crab catching.  Andrew had and infectious smile and you knew when he was happy he would laugh and enjoyed himself to the fullest. He loved life and he loved his family.
Andrew the phenomenal man was a role model to his family.  He was loved dearly by all who came into contact with him. He saw opportunities when many saw problems.  Perseverance and hard work was the name of his game. He was trustworthy, talented; helpful are a few attributes that best described Andrew.
Upon graduation from High school, he migrated to Nassau and found employment at Super Value Warehouse. In October, 1979 he joined the Royal Bahamas Police Force and his first deportment was at the Airport Police Station. Andrew stayed at this location for a number of years.  He was a dedicated staff to his employer and was well versed in his academic profession that allowed him a very rewarding career. His hard work and dedication enable Him to matriculate to the post as ASP of the K-9 Unit Royal Bahamas Police Force.  There he served for thirty-three years until the time of his demise, he served his country well.
In 2008, Andrew became ill and had to seek medical care in the USA.  There were days when he had to fight this dreadful disease called cancer, but with the help of the Holy Sprit, he was determined to win this battle.  The doctors did all they could to assist Andrew and make life more comfortable for him.  However, Andrew knew that he was made from the dust and to dust he shall returned.  He spend his last hours with his family on March 30th, his eldest brother, Thaddeus, took him for a drive and they droved around Nassau all day.
During the early morning of Saturday March 31, he developed shortness of breath and was taken to Doctor's Hospital by his younger brother, Inspector Nathan Mackey.  The doctors applied all the medical expertise but to no avail Andrew George Deveaux Sr., sojourn on this side of the master's vineyard had come to an end.  Hence in the words of Paul the Apostle, Andrew had fought a good fight, he had kept the faith He had finished his course, henceforth there is laid up for him a crown of righteousness that the Lord himself will give him on that great coronation day.
Full Military Funeral Service for the Late Assistant Superintendent of Police Andrew George Deveaux Sr., 51 years of Cassarilla Street, Pinewood Gardens and Formerly of Devil's Point, Cat Island, will be held on Wednesday April 11th, 10:00 a.m. at New Bethlehem Baptist Church, Independence Drive.

Dwayne Sinclair successfully defends title

Temple Christian School's Dwayne Sinclair knows he can throw down in the kitchen. That fact was cemented when he won the New Providence Senior Finals and the National All-Island Senior Young Chef competition last year, sweeping all categories, winning best rice and best flour dish en route to the overall senior title. This year was no different. The graduating senior put his titles on the line and mounted a successful defense. He bows out of high school as a two-time champion of the competition sponsored by Mahatma Rice and Robin Hood Flour.
"It felt like all the hard work paid off," said Sinclair whose Island Pina Colada Upside Down Cake and Island Crack Conch Cannelloni with Julienne Vegetables wowed the judges who voted them the best flour and rice dishes once again.
"[Sinclair's] food compared to the others really stood out," said One&Only Ocean Club Executive Chef Emmanuel Gibson. "His food showed his passion and creativity."
Sinclair, 17, walked away with $1,500 and a $10,000 scholarship to Lincoln College of Technology in West Palm Beach, Florida. By virtue of his win, Sinclair will travel as a junior chef with the Bahamian national squad to the Taste of the Caribbean competition, June 20-24 in Miami, Florida.
Looking back at his win, Sinclair who decided to challenge himself fully in his final showing at the competition, opted not to do any prep work prior to the competition. Nothing was prepared. He did all of his cooking and garnishes during the competition. While he said it proved to be hectic, he found he was calmer and found everything easier - that is until time for the awards ceremony. It was at that point that he doubted himself.
"You hope you win, but you really don't know until they call your name," he said.
"He was outstanding and it shows great potential," said Chef Gibson who Sinclair does work study under at the Courtyard Terrace Restaurant at the resort.
The chef said Sinclair shows great potential and that the young chef competition is a needed event which provides an avenue for high school students who aspire to the culinary arts to learn.
"They get to see so many other people's work, plus working under pressure makes a person stronger and allows them to think on your feet, so in real life situations, they can use the experience to be poised, calm and focused, and let it come out in their daily work," said Gibson.
Placing second was Sherika Gibson of S.C. Bootle High School, Abaco, with her Abaco Express and Blackwood Delight.
Third place went to Deja Burrows of Queen's College. She prepared Deja's Creamy Mango Rice Pudding with Tropical Fruit Salsa and Island Conch and Crawfish Tart with a Mango-Curry Sauce.
Stevette Murphy of North Long Island High placed fourth with her Poached Curry Grouper and Rice with Tangy Carrot and Onion Rings and Steamed Cassava Delight and Pineapple Guava Sauce.
Gibson, a graduating senior, took home $750 and a $5,000 scholarship to Lincoln College of Technology. Burrows left with $300. Murphy picked up $200 for her fourth place finish.
Judging the competition with Chef Gibson were Chef Edwin Johnson, Sapodillas Restaurant; Atlantis; Debbie Wheeler, manager of Test Kitchens for Mahatma Rice; and Chefs David Pantone and Manfred Schmidte of Lincoln College of Technology.
Chef Edwin Johnson who's been with the competition since it's inception 20 years ago, noted that organizational skills by the students have developed and improved tremendously. He also said that overall presentation including balance, color, knife skills, sanitation, nutritional value and the incorporation and utilization of indigenous products had also improved. He also mentioned that the students that now compete seem more relaxed and confident overall.
The sponsors' products, Mahatma Rice and Robin Hood Flour, are distributed in The Bahamas by Asa H. Pritchard Ltd. In addition to providing almost $4,000 in prizes each year, the sponsors also provide transportation to New Providence for competitors with their coach, and cash stipends for teachers and contestants to assist with the purchase of supplies.

Island Conch and Rice Cannelloni with Vegetable Julienne
Recipe: Dwayne Sinclair

2 tbsps butter
3/4 cup mirepoix
3 tbsps conch, diced
1 medium garlic clove, chopped
4 large sprigs of thyme
1/2 cup Mahatma Valencia rice
1 1/2 cups conch consomme, homemade
3 oz coconut milk
2 oz milk
3 oz mascarpone cheese
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Conch wrapper/skin
1 (16 x 4) sheet of ground conch meat pressed out to 1/8-inch thickness
Coating
2 large eggs
1/2 large lime, juiced
1/4 small goat pepper, ground
1 small finger pepper, ground
1 oz onion, ground
1/2 cup flour plus 1/2 cup cornstarch
5 oz seasoned Panko breadcrumbs
1 liter vegetable oil
For the vegetable julienne
2 tsps butter
1 small garlic clove
1 large thyme sprig
1 each large red, green, yellow and orange bell pepper (julienned)
1/2 medium red onion, julienned
Salt and pepper
For the creamy corn jalapeno and bacon ragout
1 strip thick-cut bacon
1 large thyme sprig
1 small garlic clove
1/2 cup fresh corn kernels (1 ear of corn)
1 tbsp flour
1/2 cup half and half
1 small jalapeno pepper, diced
4 tbsps half and half
Salt and pepper
For the plantain chips
1 small green plantain, peeled
Sea salt

Heat a medium saute pan. Cook the bacon until crispy. Saute the garlic, thyme and corn for about two minutes until tender, add the flour and cook another minute or so. Turn the heat to high and add the first addition of half and half. Bring to a boil. Season and let cool, then add the remaining ingredients and toss until well combined. Cover until ready to reheat for plating.
For the filling: Simmer consomme in a sauce pan. In another saucepan over medium heat, saute the mirepoix, garlic, thyme and conch in butter for two minutes until translucent. Add rice and cook for three minutes. Add half of the hot consomme to the rice and stir vigorously. Cook until the consomme is absorbed and the rice mixture looks almost dry. Add the remaining consomme and repeat the process all over again. While waiting for the second batch of consomme to be absorbed, heat the milk and coconut milk. When the rice mixture is almost dry again, add the hot milk and coconut milk. Check the seasoning. Turn the heat down to low and let the rice cook covered. When the rice is completely done, stir in the mascarpone cheese. Remove the rice from the pan and place on a plate and chill in the freezer until cold.
Assemble: Place the conch skin/wrapper on your work area with the longest sides going left to right. Make a few logs of the rice filling, and place in the center of the conch wrapper. Roll it up, shape into a proper log and freeze until cold.
Coating: Set up your station with four bowls, one each for flour, egg mixture, Panko breadcrumbs and empty plate for the finished cannellonis.
Assembly: Remove the chilled conch and rice logs from the freezer and place on cutting board. Using a serrated knife, but off the ends of the roll, then cut approximately five mini cannellonis from the log. Shape the cannellonis so that they are perfectly cylindrical
Final cooking: Place the cannellonis in the hot oil and fry for about one minute, just to lightly brown the breadcrumbs. Place the fried cannellonis in a dish lined with tissue and place in a 350 degree oven to warm through. Turn off oven, cover the dish and leave in the oven to keep warm until ready to plate.
For the vegetable julienne: In a medium saute pan, saute all ingredients until slightly softened about half-way cooked. They will finish cooking when it is time to reheat to plate.
For the creamy corn jalapeno and bacon ragout: Heat a medium saute pan. Cook the bacon until crispy. Saute the garlic, thyme and corn for about two minutes until tender, add the flour and cook another minute or so. Turn the heat to high and add the first addition of half and half. Bring to a boil. Season and let cool, then add the remaining ingredients and toss until well combined. Cover until ready to reheat for plating. (If the bechamel sauce is too stiff when ready to plate, just add a little more half and half and heat under a low flame, stirring constantly).

Bahamians finish third at Charleston Race Week

Brent Burrows and Chris Sands made history for The Bahamas as they represented the country at Charleston Race Week 2014. The duo was accompanied by teammate Stefan Kuehn over the course of the three-day event. The team managed to come away with a third place finish in the J/22 Class; all three of the young men are members of the nationally ranked College of Charleston Sailing Team.
Charleston Race Week is North America's largest keelboat regatta, featuring hundreds of boats and thousands of sailors from all over the world. The J/22 fleet included top-notch sailors such as Aden King and Arthur Libby, and played host to extremely competitive sailing with four of the eight boats in the fleet claiming a bullet in at least one of the races.
"We were all very pleased with how we sailed as a team. It was a good feeling being able to keep with the veterans at the top of the fleet, and even finish first in a couple of races. We were a bit worried headed into the event that our lack of boat time and minimal time together as a team would hurt us - but we managed to sail a consistent series and work together well on the boat," said Burrows.
"It was a tough first day, but we posted some low numbers in days two and three to keep us at the top of the fleet. We're really looking forward to continuing to sail the J/22s and represent The Bahamas."
The Bahamian team got off to a rough first day indeed, but managed to rebound on the second day and managed to hold onto its position on the third day. They claimed two first and two second place finishes over the course of the 10 race series.
The Bahamians finished as the top charter boat, and top College of Charleston boat; they had two other boats competing.
"I couldn't be more proud of Chris Sands, Brent Burrows and their teammate, Stefan Kuehn, with their tremendous performance at Charleston Race Week. For them to jump in a boat they hadn't sailed a week before, sail in a wide range of challenging conditions against a tough & proven group of J/22 sailors, and finish a solid third is tremendous," said Director of Sailing at the College of Charleston Greg Fisher.
"They worked hard in their practice sessions before the event, and were diligent in their pre-race preparation. It had to be special for Chris, a top starter on our varsity dinghy team, and Brent, one of our best on our varsity offshore team to be able to sail together again and finish so well."
The trio said it would like to thank Mr. John Lawrence with Windermere Corporate Management for his generous support, the Bahamas Sailing Association, and Greg Fisher for his support in providing a boat.

Hugh Edison Minnis, Sr., 44

THE LIFE & TIMES OF
SGT. 2161 HUGH EDISON MINNIS, SR.

"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."
Ecclesiastes 3:1

It is said every life has its own pathway and Journey to follow and thus was the life of Hugh Edison Minnis. Affectionately called "Edison or Minnis".

A Time to Be Born
On March 31st, 1968 a bouncing, bright eyed baby boy was born to the parentage of William Minnis and Ethral Higgs both deceased.  He was given the names Hugh Edison, which means "Bright in Mind and Spirit" and was the second of two sons born to this couple.  As he grew he lived up to his name, playing and pulling tricks on his friends and siblings which led them to say he was mischievous. Being an energetic and enthusiastic child he was often inquisitive, always asking questions and wanting to know "who and what was happening". He also liked acquiring the latest gadgets and toys so he could play with and dismantle them to see how they worked.  We just had to mention that he was a mama's boy! He was her baby boy and would tattle on all the other children to "Mammy" as he affectionately called her. Even though his siblings would be mad, he didn't care he received hugs and treats from Mammy for being the watchman. His childhood was an adventurous and happy one.
A Time For Education and Career
He was educated through the government school system, where he attended the Claridge Primary School, C. I. Gibson Jr. and then moved onto the R. M. Bailey High School, where he excelled in track and field and received other academic accolades.  Edison was an industrious young man and found early employment at the Lyford Cay Club where he served as a Waiter for a number of years.  He then moved to Super Value Ltd, where he was employed as the Produce Manager until he was called by the Royal Bahamas Police Force in 1991, and was a part of the B and C Squad 1991-1992.  As an upright Officer he worked tirelessly and respectfully in a career that he held very dear for twenty-one years.  Even after being diagnosed with his illness, he never shirked his duties because he knew what he was working towards.  Being recently promoted to the rank of Sargent, he was very proud and appreciative, and felt that his labor was not in vain.

A Time For Family Life
Edison loved people and loved life.  In the year 1991 Inez Minnis (nee Nottage) caught his eye.  They dated for many years before jumping the broom in 1994 and making a commitment to love and cherish until death did they part.
Time For Challenges
Edison became ill and was diagnosed with kidney failure. He bravely fought and ran his race, and on Monday 23rd, April 2012 he passed away and was called home in the late evening hours.
He called his sister just a few days before and said "Nicky this place is like heaven, you'll should come and see, my body feels so good and it's so peaceful here." His pain is no more and he is resting. "To God Be The Glory."
Left to celebrate his life and hold cherished memories are his loving and dedicated Wife: Inez Minnis; (1) Son: Edison Minnis Jr.; (3) Daughters: Azaria & Sanaa Minnis and Tanisha Newbold; (2) Grandchildren: Anija Minnis and Theodore Roberts Jr.; (4) Brothers: Chadwick Kemp, Sargent 1661 William Minnis, Roscoe and Ronald Minnis of Fort Pierce Fla.; (7) Sisters: Donna Dean of Fort Pierce Fla., Valerie Barr, KevaMae  Kemp, Andreanette, Jennifer & Sheryl Gaitor & Eleanor Smith; Step Mother: Montrella Minnis of Fort Pierce Fla.; (11) Sisters-in-law: Shirley Kemp, Stacey Minnis, Millestine Smith, Norine Moxey, Ruth, Murriel, Prudence, Christine, Aneka, Vanessa and Winifred Nottage; (9) Brothers-in-law: Herbert Barr, Benjamin Newbold, Anthony, Donnie, Dave, Fenrick & Jemerson Nottage, Rexville Smith and Prince Moxey; Aunts and Uncles: Othman and Carl Higgs of Rochester New York and family, Simeon Rolle of Fort Pierce Fla., Zilla Higgs of Rochester New York, Lighty Adderley, Gloria & Uriah Sturrup, Melrose Burrows, Prolene Smith and Family, Patsy, Mary Conchita, Jenkin, Ezekiel & Eugene Nottage and their Families; Numerous Nieces and Nephews including: Doris Munroe & Sequetor Hooper of Fort Pierce Fla., Ricardo and Roseann Christie, Kevin and Raquel Edgecombe, Herbert Jr. and Jasmine Barr,  P/C 3042 Ovando and Krystal Kemp, P/C Lavardo and Charmaine Kemp, Tomiko, Terry, Precious and Dylan Kemp, R/C 3663 Ferrice Kemp, Pedrica, Pedra, Pedro Jr., Kareem, Shakoby, Roscoe, Janell and Jeremiah Minnis, Valerie Barr, Lorenzo Darling, Kennedy Reid, Clint and Lakeisha Lockhart, Janice and Travis Forbes, Alexis Gibson, Ashley Knowles, Kaeley Rolle, Shelton Miller, Tamal Curry, Ebony Gerenus, Rex Smith Jr., Aledeon Miller, Jada and Prince Moxey Jr., Shantique Coakley, Ramon, Davia, Danekam Aliyah, Zaia, Shadae, Tyrek, Fenrick Jr., Matthew, Fenron, Antoinette, Tyran, Lena and Anthony Nottage & Justin Spence; A host of other Relatives and Friends: Joyce Roberts & family, Harrison Wilson & family, Roy Smith, Cardinal & Mella Rolle & family, Dwayne Harris & family, Audley & Marjorie Rahming & family, Drs.
