Mr Moir, who died at age 89, started the family award as a way to encourage his grandchildren to always persevere whenever they felt like giving up. Anytime they felt a feat could not be accomplished, he was always quick to remind them that "a Moir never gives up".

Young mother fatally shot

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama - A 24-year-old mother has become Grand Bahama's fifth homicide victim for 2011.
The woman sustained a fatal gunshot wound to the head on Saturday night while in the Royal Bahamia Estates area.
According to police, they received a call around 10:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 18, notifying them that a female had been shot.
Uniformed and plain clothes officers responded and they learned the woman had taken a bullet to the head, and she was transported by ambulance to the Accident and Emergency section of the Rand Memorial Hospital to receive treatment.
The victim, who is a resident of Eight Mile Rock, succumbed to her injuries a short time later, mere minutes before 11:00 p.m, police said.
Police said that the motive for the fatal shooting is unknown at this time. They are calling for the help of the Grand Bahama community to assist in solving this crime, and are urging anyone with information that could assist their investigation to call 350-3107/8, 352-9774/5 or 911.
Detectives from the Central Detective Unit, Scenes of Crime Unit and uniformed divisions are conducting an intense investigation into the shooting, according to police.
Police are also urging the public to come forth with any information they may have on the homicides of 31-year-old Kiano Javier Martinborough and 29-year-old Sonny Anafolis, the third and fourth homicide victims for the year.
Both were shot in the Garden Villas area.
Martinborough was shot in the head on Sunday, May 8, 2011 sometime after 11:00 p.m.
When police arrived on Adventurer's Way after being notified about the shooting, officers came across Martinborough, who was lying on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
He was pronounced dead shortly after being transported by ambulance to the Rand Memorial Hospital.
Anafolis, who was shot in the back of the neck on Monday, May 16, became paralyzed from his injuries and remained in critical condition until he died on Friday, May 27 at the Princess Margaret Hospital in New Providence.
Sources told The Freeport News that the deaths of Martinborough and Anafolis were connected, alleging that Anafolis was the intended victim the night Martinborough was killed.
The first homicide for the year occurred when 24-year-old Tamaro Johnson was stabbed on Sunday, March 8, outside of Club Rock N' Roll in the International Bazaar.
Johnson, who had received multiple stab wounds to the body, succumbed to his injuries the next day at the Rand Memorial Hospital.
Twenty-one-year-old Jonathan McKenzie and 18-year-old Darieo Demetrius Smith were charged with his murder.
Both will return to court on July 13, 2011 for a preliminary inquiry.
Forty-two-year-old Patrick Russell of Lewis Yard was killed on Monday, March 7, becoming the island's second homicide.
Russell had been sitting in his vehicle through an unpaved road between Weddell Avenue and Bruce Avenue when another vehicle approached and the occupants opened fire on him.
He sustained multiple gunshots wound about the body and was pronounced dead upon arrival at the Rand Memorial Hospital.
Twenty-eight-year-old Leonard Louis Barnett was charged with his murder.

Officials of the National Anti-Drug Secretariat (NADS) in the Ministry of National Security, along with community leaders and members of the CEO Network, visited parts of the Farm Road and Centreville community yesterday as part of a joint initiative called 'United Against Crime'.  The initiative proposes the use of former gang leaders, who are now community leaders, by government in the fight to reverse the rising crime, violence and social disorder that is impacting the country.
"They (community leaders) represent men who have a depth of experience in crime, [and in recognizing] that they have contributed to the social decay in our country, they have offered themselves to be a part of the solution," said CEO Network president Deborah Bartlett yesterday.  "Anytime you want to clean up an area from anything that represents rebellion you must start with the environment."
The Ministry of National Security is seeking to inspire the people of all communities to take ownership of their personal, family and community responsibilities, said Bartlett.  She told The Nassau Guardian yesterday that the Ministry of National Security has also been taking time over the last 11 months to develop United Against Crime based on requests from various community leaders for more opportunities, instead of handouts.  She added that poor living conditions is a large contributing factor to the increasing crime levels.  In order to successfully address this issue more community involvement is needed, she noted.
Sunlight Cottage and Toote Shop Corner both have dilapidated cars, piles of garbage and debris and a number of uncleared drains, which have added to the frustrations of area residents, according to Troy Symonette, a member of United Against Crime.
Director of the National Anti-Drug Secretariat (NADS) Captain Godfrey Rolle commented that the government alone cannot address crime without the involvement of the community.  He added that the inner community leaders met with National Security Minister Tommy Turnquest in recent months
"I am enthused by the efforts I have seen from community leaders already and I invite corporate citizens, individuals and institutions to [contribute] to the initiative," he said.
Verdell Cargill, a resident of Farm Road, expressed that she was extremely concerned about the amount of garbage that has built up in the community, despite having placed her garbage outside for collection some three weeks prior, as did many other residents.
"My main concerns are the amount of garbage, the roaches and the mosquitoes that are around, especially considering the threat of dengue fever," she said yesterday in front of her home.  "It was like this during the passing of Hurricane Irene and it's still like this now," said Cargill.

A better program could pay dividends for The Bahamas

The 42nd version of the CARIFTA Games, staged here earlier this year, was yet another indication of the potential the Bahamian sports industry has. Our track and field athletes performed with the courage of lions.
The Bahamas' eight gold, 10 silver and 13 bronze medals (31 in total) were good enough for second to Jamaica's 29, 25 and 15 for a total of 69. The difference between Jamaica and The Bahamas was clear. The medal count demonstrated the superiority of our sister Caribbean nation. Bahamian observers were heartened however by a few signs.
Of course, there was the great junior athlete Shaunae Miller, who sent a message to the world about the talent in The Bahamas, with her sensational runs in the under-20 female 200 meters (22.77) and 400 meters (51.63). Miller will not be there for The Bahamas when the supreme Caribbean junior track and field event is held in Fort-de-France, Martinique next year. She has moved out of the junior category.
The talent depth is here, though, for others to emerge and give this country the numbers to make a stronger challenge against Jamaica for the title. Spectators, particularly Bahamians, would recall with pride the awesome combination of under-20 female sprinters Devynne Charlton and Carmiesha Cox.
Charlton zipped across the finish in 11.60, just a hair ahead of Cox (11.61) in the under-20 female 100 meters (m) final. They will be eligible for The Bahamas once again. They provide a prime example of the grit of the Bahamian athletes. Our athletes have always performed gallantly. They have demonstrated year after year, an unflinching spirit.
That indomitable characteristic was there to be found in Bradley Cooper and his teammates during the late 1970s, when The Bahamas began the surge to the top. During the early 1980s when the country arrived at the pinnacle of CARIFTA Games glory by winning (in 1980, 1981, 1983 and 1984), our athletes were not to be denied. The group of stalwarts who carried our banner in battle so magnificently included Mark Johnson, Wendell Lawrence, Joey Wells, Pauline Davis, Monique Miller, Whelma Colebrooke, Laverne Eve, Michael Newbold, Stanford Moss, Lynden Sands, Steve Wray, David Charlton, Fabian Whymms, Oralee Fowler and Maryann Higgs.
Sadly, while the talent reservoir in The Bahamas remains the envy of the region, the development program is nothing to brag about at all. In fact, the Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations (BAAA) does not have a vibrant national development program. Quite frankly, the athletes who do so well for this country are those who come out of the school programs. Others surface because their parents/guardians can afford to pay coaches to train them.
While the BAAA grabs the credit, the truth is well known. The time has come for the BAAA to focus on structuring a national program that reaches into every corner of every community in the country. There once was a time when a strong effort was made in that direction. There are those now associated with the BAAA, who know of the ventures made by the organization into a variety of islands to find raw athletic products.
Subsequently, several attempts at talent-search programs stalled. Today, the BAAA does not have a strong development program that covers the entire country. As a result, the CARIFTA squads are constantly with the make-up that has New Providence out-numbering all of the other islands collectively. This situation has to change.
If it does, then, and only then, will The Bahamas be able to put up an incredibly strong challenge against Jamaica and ultimately reclaim the top status.

Government cancels contract for court reporting unit

The government has terminated the contract of Ludell Theophilus, who worked as a consultant in the Court Reporting Unit since 1999.
Last month, Theophilus reportedly received notice to vacate the Bay Street premises by December 31, nine months before her contract was set to expire on September 30, 2014. Government canceled the contract due to alleged breaches.
The move now raises questions about the future employment of the 22 court reporters who work for Theophilus' company, LET Consultancy, when the contract expires. The remaining 18 reporters work for the public service.
Bahamas Public Services Union (BPSU) President John Pinder told The Nassau Guardian yesterday that he is working to ensure that the private court reporters transition to the public service before the end of the year so there are no disruptions in the court.
Pinder said that reporters provide an essential service. He said more workers are needed for the new courts set to come on stream next year.
Privately contracted workers carried out industrial action in September over unpaid wages and the uncertainty of their careers.
The pay issues were resolved but the workers voiced concern about their future when Theophilus' contract comes to an end.
Theophilus, the first Bahamian to qualify as a court reporter, managed the public services reporters and her staff until this year.
That arrangement ended in January 2013 when Enith Darling was appointed as acting director of Court Reporting Services. Royanne Morrison and Judith Clare were appointed acting deputy directors.
However, they have not been paid for their services. Pinder said Attorney General Allyson Maynard-Gibson has assured him those pay issues will soon be rectified.

1/3 of Bahamas hotels 'inundated' by sea rise


Tribune Business Editor

More than one-third of all Bahamian resorts - some 77 in total - would be "inundated" if sea levels rose one metre as a result of global warming a climate change, a new study has revealed, with the Bahamas facing infrastructure and tourism plant rebuilding costs of between $5.6 billion and $11 billion in 2050 if this phenomenon continues unchecked.

The Modelling the Transformational Impacts and Costs of Sea Level Rise in the Caribbean study, released by Caribsave and Oxford University researchers to coincide with the United Nations Climate Change conference in Cancun this week, underlined the dire economic and social consequences for the Baham ...

Bail set for teacher accused of drug possession

A magistrate yesterday set bail at $50,000 with two sureties for a public school teacher accused of drug possession with intent to supply.
Colin Michael Evans, who is British, pleaded not guilty to a charge of marijuana possession with intent to supply at his arraignment before Deputy Chief Magistrate Carolita Bethell earlier this week.
According to defense attorney Dion Smith, who appeared for the bail hearing, Evans, who works at Sir Jack Hayward High School, has been in the country since 1984.
Evans, who has permanent residency, was arrested on Grand Bahama on October 12.  According to police, officers from the Drug Enforcement Unit were on mobile patrol when they stopped and searched a gray car on Queens Cove Road.  The officers allegedly found a crocus sack that contained 176 pounds of marijuana, with a wholesale street value of $176,000.
Smith said that Evans required lots of fluids because he had prostatitis, an inflammation of the prostate gland.
Bethell said she would inform the prison doctor about Evans' condition.  His trial begins on May 9, 2012.
Magistrate Bethell also granted $50,000 bail with two sureties to the 61-year-old woman who police arrested after they allegedly found 111 pounds of marijuana in her home.
Beverly Rudella Laing of Lobster Avenue, Golden Gates, pleaded not guilty to a charge of marijuana possession with intent to supply.
Police allegedly found the drugs in a bedroom when they executed a search warrant on her home on October 12.
Her lawyer Shaka Serville said that Laing was on medication for a multiplicity of ailments, including hypertension, diabetes and issues with her thyroid and heart.
Her trial begins on May 8, 2012.
