When Zordella Mullings and Javon Frazer Sr. insured their son as a baby they did not know how desperately they would need that coverage.
Less than a year after they began claiming on that insurance policy, the $1 million available to them had been used.
Javon Frazer Jr., 5, has stage three Burkitts Lymphoma. A playful game between mother and son led to the discovery that would change life for the young family.
It was about one year ago when Mullings said she felt the lump on her son’s stomach. She said her son had the annoying habit of rubbing her stomach. On a January day she returned the favor to “show him how it felt”. That’s when Mullings realized that somet ...

Urgent call to arms in Bahamian softball

Burkett Dorsett, the president of the Bahamas Softball Federation (BSF) has a heavy load on his head. The representation by the national men's team in Medellin, Colombia started very badly. In the first three games, The Bahamas mustered just three runs (against the Dominican Republic in the opener, 3-9). Venezuela blanked The Bahamas 9-0 in the second game of the Sunday double-header and Canada registered a whitewash on Monday by the score of 5-0 to put The Bahamas at 0-3 in the 7th Pan American Men's Softball Championships.
Whatever the final outcome for Team Bahamas, Dorsett is advised to go back to the drawing board. There needs to be a rebirth of sorts for the country in softball. Once ranked among the top three nations in the world in men and women's softball, the fall from grace has been a crushing blow to our sports power image.
In truth, the recent softball administrations have not been able to guide the national program in the direction of the success achieved during an earlier era. The BSF should host a conclave of top softball names, those who led substantively and not loudly. I speak of those softball leaders with one collective agenda, to propel softball in the country and to maintain the standing in the world. This was a group that sacrificed much in the interest of the development process of the game.
There was no interest among this group of stalwarts in self-aggrandizing. For them it was all about the athletes and the national program. Dorsett and Godfrey Burnside fit into this mold and so do a few more, today. Obviously, with others, the influence has not proven to be positive. It was refreshing to discover that Stephen "Garbo" Coakley is back in the mix. I was pleasantly surprised when Dorsett told me that Coakley was indeed on board again.
Coakley, Michael Moss, Greg Christie, Neko Grant, Churchill Tener-Knowles, Godfrey "Gully" Pinder, Bobby "Baylor" Fernander, Alfred Culmer and the late Leon "Apache" Knowles made up that venerable group of leaders who crafted teams decade after decade that made Bahamians across the length and breadth of this archipelago proud when they competed at home and abroad.
I believe we can make the return to past glory. Sit around with the aforementioned Dorsett. Solicit their advice going forward. Against Canada, the performance of The Bahamas was not good at all. Jason Hill went to the mound for Canada and pitched the first four innings. He allowed just one Bahamian hit and struck out 11 batters. Quite simply, he over-matched the Bahamians who swung the bats.
Hill made way for Brady Woods who pitched the final three innings, without giving up a hit. He fanned six batters. Canada struck out 17 Bahamian batters. That's truly amazing, given the country's past history in softball. Nevertheless, that's the reality of today. Regional nations that we were once better than now out-class us. There is indeed the need for an urgent call to arms Mr. President.

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.

Ministry officials, community leaders tour Farm Road

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 special tribute from a colonel to a cougar

Along with senior members of the local basketball fraternity, and on behalf of the Kentucky Colonels Basketball Club, public expression is given to the profound sense of loss at the time-sensitive mortal transition of legendary coach and archrival Cougars counterpart, Arthur Adolphus 'Gully' Rolle. For in spite of our epic confrontations in the basketball arena, we shared a personal bond and intimate friendship founded on mutual admiration and respect which collectively served to confuse the minds of many supporters of my Colonels and his Cougars. We both faced accusations of sleeping with the enemy but ours was a subscription to the Post Civil War unifying theme of Abe Lincoln to cultivate friendships with enemies.
Gully and I were two of the first Bahamians to achieve FIBA's highest coaches certification at Grade One in 1974. He served as my assistant at Centro Basquet, the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) regional championships in Mexico (1977); the Central American and Caribbean Games in Medellin, Colombia (1978); and the AAU South Regionals in Delray Beach, Florida (1979). I subsequently served under him at two CARICOM Basketball Championships, returning with the title each time. In fact, Gladstone 'Moon' McPhee is the only Bahamian coach with better international results, and these with Gully as his assistant.
Foremost memories though are reserved for the 22 years of epic battles fought on home soil between the Beck's Cougars and the Kentucky Colonels beginning in 1968, lasting throughout the 1970s and 1980s and briefly revived in 2007 to honor the late sports reporter, Phil Smith. It is common knowledge that local basketball was at its highest standard in that prior era with regular game attendance by even the prime minister at that time, Sir Lynden Pindling.
To achieve and retain positions of dominance therefore, my Colonels and Gully Rolle's Cougars never practised for games. Instead both clubs conducted rehearsals, sometimes five times per week, inclusive of conditioning and classroom sessions beginning in the summer. Such levels of preparation created platforms for achieving excellence causing Gully's Cougars to be singled out as the only club to ever win what was regarded as the 'Triple Crown' of local basketball: the New Providence Championships, the National Championships and the prestigious Independence Tournament, all in the same calendar year (1973-1974). He heightened his fame by branching out on his own to form his own championship club, the Coca-Cola Explorers.
Regrettably, the name of Arthur Adolphus 'Gully' Rolle does not seem to resonate as much as it should among today's young ballers, coaches or sports commentators despite his vast contribution to national development through sports, basketball in particular. Perhaps his humble persona factored him into the same tragic misfortune which befell scores of other Bahamian athletes and sports administrators whose wonderfully heroic achievements have gone unappreciated, unnoticed and subsequently consigned to the dust bin of history. Prominent examples are the subdued acknowledgement of the remarkable accomplishments of the 'Bahamian Torpedo', Arianna Vanderpool Wallace, and concomitantly, the continuous national indifference assigned to the role Betty Kelly-Kenning played in our daughter finishing a slim 0.64 seconds shy of a gold medal in swimming at the 2012 Olympic Games.
Fortunately however, 'Gully' is among those few short-listed for induction into this country's National Hall of Fame, the state-recognized Parthenon for the elite among Bahamian sports heroes of the past century. As it was for the current 84 Hall of Fame members, such an eventual honor will celebrate and rescue from oblivion, the valiant efforts of Arthur Adolphus 'Gully' Rolle as he toiled to build his Bahamas through basketball. We therefore do not cry because his life has transitioned. Rather, we rejoice and are grateful for all the blessings he brought to us in the fruitful years he was allocated. Let us all offer genuine condolences to Helen and the children, offering deep prayers of intercession for Arthur Adolphus 'Gully' Rolle, a colleague I am proud to have counted as my friend.
