Two more Bahamians are set to receive the ultimate recognition by one of the most powerful organizations in the region.
The Central American and Caribbean Athletic Confederation (CACAC), which encompasses 35 countries, will induct Bahamians Eldece Clarke-Lewis and Doyle Burrows into its Hall of Fame next month. Those inductions, which will be carried out by CACAC President Victor Lopez, are scheduled for Sunday, March 4 at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort.
'Golden Girl' Clarke-Lewis and Burrows will be the seventh and eighth Bahamians to enter the doors of the CACAC Hall of Fame. Five Bahamians were inducted during the organization's third Hall of Fame banquet in 2008, namely Bernard 'BJ' Nottage, Livingston Bostwick, Frank Rutherford, Troy Kemp and Pauline Davis-Thompson. Two years later, they were joined by Keith Parker. Each year, the executives of the confederation decide which persons are worthy of the honor, and this year, Clarke-Lewis and Burrows are among the selected few. It's a belated birthday present for both, as Burrows celebrated the milestone on February 9, and Clarke-Lewis gave thanks for another year on February 13.
"I am humbled to have been selected for such a prestigious recognition," said Clarke-Lewis. "When one is given the privilege to represent this country in track and field, like I have had, it is considered a blessing. I wish to thank the organizers, the BAAA (Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations) and the officials of the CACAC as well as the government and people of The Bahamas for this honor. This is one of the best awards that I would have received. It reminds me of all the sacrifices that I made over the years. CACAC is where I got my start, so it is always good to be recognized from the beginning, so to me, it is one of the best and finest awards that I would have received."
Burrows, who has been involved in the sport on so many levels for 53 years, said that he is grateful and pleasantly surprised.
"To me this ranks among the top awards that I would have received because in this instance, it is your peers recognizing you. When your peers from the entire region honor you, it is one of the top things that could happen, especially when you didn't expect it," said Burrows. "I didn't do it for what I could get out of it. Workers don't get rewards. It is a passion of mine and that is the reason why I got involved. I would just like to thank the BAAA for submitting my name, and I wish to ask all my friends and colleagues in Junkanoo and track and field to come out and support this event."
The first CACAC Hall of Fame banquet was held in Jamaica and Cuba in 2003. It is always held in the country of the honoree or honorees. To be eligible for the honor, athletes have to win a medal at either the World Championships or the Olympics during their careers, and would have had to participate in either the Senior CACAC Championships or the CACAC Games. There is also a five-year window after their retirement from the sport that they must go through before they are eligible for the honor. As a contributor, the individual has to make a significant contribution to the sport of athletics in the region.
Lifelong friend of Clarke-Lewis, Pauline Davis-Thompson, said that she is proud of her fellow 'Golden Girl' who she has competed with on so many national teams.
"I'm very proud of her and the woman that she has become. She's a role model and a mentor for so many of our young people today and she continues to give back in a very tangible way," said Davis-Thompson. "She has done some amazing things for this country and is well deserving of this honor.
"As for Mr. Burrows, he has always been very professional and has given so much to our country. He has done a lot to develop young people and we need many more people like him to come out and give back to our country. We have to be nation builders and Mr. Burrows is an example of that. I'm proud to have known him. He is like a father figure to all of us and a dear friend also, and I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you for all that you have done. You have volunteered your time and you are so deserving of this honor."
Tickets for the event cost $60, and proceeds will go toward the expenses for the Bahamas team which will travel to the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. The tickets can be accessed at the BAAA office at the current Thomas A. Robinson Track and Field Stadium, the Prescription Parlour Pharmacy on East Street South, A.G. Electric on Jerome Avenue and at the Colony Club.
"The BAAA is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year and this is one of the events included as a part of the celebrations," said BAAA Public Relations Officer Alpheus 'Hawk' Finlayson. "This will be an excellent opportunity for Bahamians to thank Clarke and Burrows for their outstanding contributions to national and regional track and field over the years."
Clarke-Lewis was a member of The Bahamas' 4x100 meters (m) women's relay team which won the silver medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, and the gold medal at the 1999 World Championships and the 2000 Olympic Games. She first took part in the CARIFTA Track and Field Championships in 1980, and has participated in numerous CAC competitions since. She has a personal best of 10.96 seconds in the 100m, achieved on April 29, 2000, which was a world leading performance at that time.
As for Burrows, he served as treasurer of the BAAA from 1968-1976. He was team manager of numerous World Championships and Olympic track and field teams. Burrows was a member of the Pioneer's Sporting Club and first represented the club in the BAAA in 1960. He is well respected as a facilities expert.
Cardiovascular disease, commonly referred to as heart disease, is the number one killer of people in The Bahamas and around the world. As heart month came to a close, the fight against it still continued because more people die from heart disease than from any other cause. Heart disease does not discriminate. It affects people who are rich and poor, young and old. It does not prejudice based on race, religion, educational attainment or ethnicity. It affects everyone. Oftentimes, people are not sensitized to illnesses unless the illness affects them or their immediate family.
While there are many preventative measures to be taken by adults, such as exercise, eating right, not smoking, lowering cholesterol and taking medications correctly, in the case of babies and children, they rely on others for care and treatment against heart disease. And heart care is not cheap in cases where heart disease is discovered, regardless of age. Heart care can cost up to $1 million. What is even more unfortunate, is that many children when born, may not be privileged to have medical insurance or parents who can afford heart care. As such, when their parents discover that their new born babies have congenital heart disease, they are in a state of emotional and financial frustration, and fear. One such family currently facing such a challenge is that of Rah'nae De'ajah Burrows.
In October 2011, Antoine and Jessica Burrows welcomed their daughter into their family. Tests were carried out to ensure that she was healthy. It was discovered that Rah'nae had characteristics of Down syndrome - news that is not often readily accepted by many new parents - but the couple loved their baby nonetheless and saw her as a special gift from God.
Because of the existence of those characteristics, concerns arose to the possibility that Rah'nae may also have heart disease. After a week in the hospital it was discovered by an echocardiogram that she had a large atrial septal defect (ASD), which was a hole in her heart. The parents were referred to Dr. Jerome Lightbourne at the Pediatric Heart Clinic, at Princess Margaret Hospital. Additionally, genetic testing was done and the tests confirmed that she had Down syndrome.
Consequently, the parents were told to take Rah'nae to the Neurodevelopment Center for therapy, the Neurology clinic, and the Neonatology clinic. The entire process was emotionally and mentally taxing and challenging for the new parents.
With therapy over the past year, Rah'nae's health has been great and the family has seen progress, but Rah'nae is having problems with weight gain because of the heart condition and needs heart surgery desperately.
The Burrows' cannot afford the cost of heart surgery for their baby girl which could run them around $55,000 - and their daughter does not have insurance. Jessica is a school teacher and her husband, a transport operator.
Sadly, this family, like many, is only trying to survive in tough economic times and ensure that there is food, clothing and shelter for the family. As such, they need help to save their baby.
Dr. Lightbourne referred the Burrows' to The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation for possible assistance with Rah'nae's surgery. The heart foundation seeks to provide heart care assistance to people, particularly children, who can not ordinarily afford heart care. The nonprofit entity relies heavily upon the generosity of others to help repair the hearts of children. Today, Rah'nae is on a wait list among 11 patients awaiting heart surgery.These patients and their families are prayerful and hopeful that the public will heed the appeals made and make a donation to the heart foundation to help save their lives. Sadly, without such surgeries, patients like Rah'nae, may not live full productive lives and can possibly die.
"The cost of heart surgery is very costly and it does not come with color, face or creed. We don't know when it will affect our loved ones; so I am asking that you please make a donation to the heart foundation to help those who are in need at this time," said Rah'nae's mother. "The heart foundation has been so generous over the years by helping to assist parents with the funds for surgery, and at this time there are 11 children waiting for assistance to have surgery. We need everyone's help at this time, even if it's only one dollar. It counts and can go a long way. By doing this you are donating to a worthy cause - you are saving lives and mending broken hearts," she said.
Burrows thanked the people that have supported her to date in raising funds so that her daughter could receive heart surgery.
To join the fight against heart disease and help children like Rah'nae, the public is encouraged to make a donation to The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation. No amount is ever too small. Donations are encouraged year round. General donations, tributes, memorial donations and trusts are encouraged. Additionally, Americans can make tax deductible donations to aid the fight against heart disease. Sponsorship and hosting of fundraising events are also encouraged. The public is encouraged to support the two major fundraisers of The Heart Ball Committee - the Annual Heart Ball and The Annual Tea Party and Fashion Show. The public can also join the Bahamas Heart Association. The proceeds from the membership dues are used in the fight against heart disease.
While you may have missed the Heart Ball for 2012, you can still make a difference in a child's life today, said ball committee public relations officer, Ingrid Sears.
"It's more about the cause of helping to repair a heart than anything else. At present there are 11 plus children awaiting surgery. As the year progresses it is expected that more children will join this list, so the public's assistance is needed and encouraged in this fight against heart disease in children," she said.
To join the fight against heart disease in children and to help save a life, telephone 327-0806/10. You can also send a check to The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation, P.O. Box N-8189, Nassau, The Bahamas, or telephone 327-0806 for deposit instructions.

Thursday 27th February 2014 7:00 PM
The final programming to accompany "Swan Song of The Flamingo" will take place in the coming weeks: first up is... "Speak the Speech II, 1973-2013" When: Thursday, February 27, 2014 Where: The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas Time: 7:00 pm Created by Philip A. Burrows and complied by Nicolette Bethel. The performance by C.O.B students comprises speeches and correspondences from Bahamian history of that period, including a passage referring to the "Flamingo Incident."
A fair playing field for all Bahamian athletes is the dream of Gregory 'Greg' Burrows, the Progressive Liberal Party's (PLP) candidate for St. Anne's.Burrows has devised a plan which he believes will not only improve sports in The Bahamas, but create and provide better opportunities for all athletes, coaches and officials. Topping his list is the refurbishment of all sporting facilities and the consistent upkeep of them. Burrows would also like to see federations and associations provided with the necessary tools and equipment needed to improve their respective sporting disciplines.
The founder of the Freedom Farm Baseball League would like to take a national stance to ensure that The Bahamas is a better place for all.
"The decision to offer myself in public life was made in 1989 when I formed the Freedom Farm Baseball League and began to mentor young people in our nation," said Burrows. "This group has grown to over 700 young people who play during January to June of each year. I am now taking the success of these 23 years and offering it to a greater audience who will impact our country for its future success. It is certainly the right time because of divine providence and a national need."
The Freedom Farm Baseball League is one of the premier baseball organizations in the country. Six divisions are contested each season by more than 600 young men and women. In 2010, the under-12 team from Freedom Farm won the Cal Ripken World Series, defeating Visalia, California, 7-1. The league has also captured the most divisional titles in the Bahamas Baseball Federation's (BBF) Andre Rodgers Championships.
Even though Burrows is an avid sportsman, there are other issues he believes need to be addressed, when it comes to creating a better Bahamas. The devoted father was awarded the'Man of Distinction'award from the Kiwanis Club of Nassau, in 2001, and received the JCNâEUR^Civil Society and'Person of the Year'award for sports and community services, last year. Burrows was also recognized for his outstanding services by the Rotary International Club.
"The sporting community will be impacted when I become a member of Parliament," he said."Difficulties are the greatest opportunities to be creative with solutions. History reflects the ability that I possess to impact the sporting community, and with the help of God, this will continue.
"I am of the view that there will be no conflict of interest as both responsibilities (sports and politics) would have national responsibility. The need to step in, in my view, is a moot point due to the structure of my sporting discipline. There are scores of dedicated men and women who have joined me and pledged their time, talent and resources and are committed to the development of youth through baseball. My victory would allow for these persons to continue serving in the capacities that they presently hold and perhaps take on additional responsibilities. As a member of Parliament, if I am required to step down to effectively carry out my duties, I will be more than willing to do so."
The general election for The Bahamas is less than four months away and we are seeing chess moves daily by all three major political parties.
The Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) has made a lot of changes in terms of its slate of candidates. They now have notable first-timers Dion Smith, Dr. Daniel Johnson, Greg Burrows and Dr. Perry Gomez. But they have ratified Obie Wilchombe, Picewell Forbes, Anthony Moss, Shane Gibson and V. Alfred Gray, Leslie Miller despite calls from PLP Trustee George Smith, former chairman Raynard Rigby and former campaign coordinator Philip Galanis, who said that these men are not good for the party and are essentially bad candidates. Interestingly enough, Vincent Peet was the only candidate not ratified by the PLP and this is due to an issue that he had with a client's funds that was leaked to the public.
Just recently, Hubert Ingraham, as promised, announced 17 new FNM candidates for the next general election. Many FNM incumbents were not given the nod this time around. Earl Deveaux and Larry Cartwright are two of the most noted serving Cabinet ministers who have given up their seats for the FNM's fresh faces. Could it be that Ingraham in his wisdom realized that change was imminent and he had to re-engineer the look of his party? Could it also be that Ingraham was trying to get rid of some bad candidates?
The prime minister said it best when he said, "There will always be lazy MPs". His call for fresh faces in the new FNM lineup is a good move given that Bahamians have become dissatisfied with his current slate of Cabinet ministers and backbenchers.
But what is surprising to me is the recycling of bad candidates. Many of these candidates have not performed well in their constituencies or as ministers and now they have been ratified in their current constituency or have been ratified in another constituency.
Loretta Butler-Turner, Zhivargo Laing and Desmond Bannister are all FNM Cabinet ministers with lots of exposure to the Bahamian public, especially over the last four and a half years. The fact that they are running in different areas speaks volumes to the way voters feel about them. I can say for sure that Montagu residents won as a result of this move. They will now be represented by Ben Albury, Richard Lightbourne or Frank Smith whenever the election results are posted.
Laing was embedded in controversy with the MonaVie product. He is also the minister of state for finance in a time when the country saw downgrades from international financial agencies Moody's and Standard and Poor's. Bannister I believe did not effectively raise the bar at the Ministry of Education even though he made some strides in protecting students from 'predator' teachers. The audit findings from the Education Loan Authority audit last year have not been published and despite improprieties, there have been no reports of arrests or disciplinary action at the Ministry of Education although the loan fund has been grossly mismanaged. Additionally, the national average continues to remain a D.
The PLP has ratified Shane Gibson as its candidate for Golden Gates. Just recently, the major dailies printed numerous reports with regards to improprieties at the Ministry of Housing while Gibson was the minister. Dr. Duane Sands, present chairman of the Bahamas Mortgage Corporation, said Gibson should be held responsible for the myriad inconsistencies that occurred while Gibson was at the helm.
In a value for money audit conducted after the PLP left office, the auditors are quoted as saying, "Without such basic financial management controls, a vacuum of accountability exists. The risk of misuse of funds is high". This information did not affect the ratification of Gibson as a candidate for the PLP in the upcoming general election.
Furthermore, PLPs advised by way of the media that Anthony Moss and Picewell Forbes were underperforming in their constituencies. In fact, Keod Smith was campaigning in Forbes' constituency until Perry Christie brought this fiasco to an abrupt end. All of these candidates were ratified.
The Democratic National Alliance (DNA), on the other hand, has had no candidate ever serve in Parliament save for Branville McCartney. They did, however, rid themselves of two candidates who they said were under-performing. Will they have the gumption to weed out other candidates who are now seemingly under-performing at this late hour? Time will tell.
I think that just as persons are promoted on jobs for being effective, Members of Parliament should be judged by this same rule of thumb. In fact Members of Parliament should be held to a higher standard. If a Member of Parliament, a Cabinet minister or a candidate is under-performing, he should be given a chance to better execute his job. If this fails then they should be fired and not transferred or promoted.
One of the major problems embedded in our culture is that we continually promote people for long service and or loyalty as opposed to their efficiency and effectiveness.
People who are ineffective in a post will never leave. They must be forced out. I firmly believe that the selection process of candidates is flawed and that the best candidate is not always selected to vie for a seat in Parliament. The ratification of candidates is too leader centric and it appears that the councils for the major parties are not acting independently. It can not be in 2012 that we are continuing to recycle bad candidates especially when the public record proves poor performance.
I say five years is enough time for voters to make a determination if an incumbent has done a good job. And even when bad candidates are transferred to other constituencies and ratified, I want voters to know that this will not solve the candidate's management deficiencies or the candidate's previous poor performance.
