Wildcats, Brackettes win on ladies' night at the park

With a men's softball tournament going on in Abaco and the Bahamas Baseball Federation's (BBF) Championships being contested in Freeport, just women's teams saw action in the New Providence Softball Association (NPSA) this past weekend; it turned out to be laugher in both contests.
In a championship rematch, the defending champions, Sigma Brackettes, easily stopped the Proper Care Pool Sharks via the 10-run mercy rule in four innings; the Sigma Wildcats did the same to the Electro Telecom Lady Hitmen.
Brackettes 15, Sharks 5
The Brackettes are on a mission to win their second straight NPSA title. They got good production from the bottom of their line-up on Saturday night, and veteran pitcher Ernestine "Big Horse" Stubbs was solid from the mound to lead them to a resounding 15-5 win over the young Sharks.
Batting eighth, Sheena Taylor finished a perfect 2-for-2 with two RBIs and a run scored. She connected for two doubles off losing pitcher Rochea Morley. Theota Williams entered the game as a reserve, and had a RBI double in two at-bats. Kenise Symonette finished 1-for-2 with a RBI and two runs scored. Third baseman Amarige Taylor also finished 1-for-2 and drove in a run.
Stubbs scattered five hits and recorded the win.
Losing pitcher Morley had a hit, Brittney Rahming was 2-for-3 with two RBIs and a run scored, and Elizabeth Sawyer finished 1-for-2. Lead-off batter Lashawn Wiley had a hit in three at-bats and scored two runs.
The defending champions Brackettes improved to 3-2 in the standings while the Sharks dropped to 1-6, a year after making the NPSA finals. They decided to rebuild the team this year, going with much younger players while a lot of veterans left for other teams.
Wildcats 17, Lady Hitmen 0
The Wildcats are back, and they are back with a vengeance!
The former perennial champions of the league improved to a 6-0 win/loss record this year, as they blanked the Electro Telecom Lady Hitmen while putting up 17 runs on Saturday night at the Bankers Field, Baillou Hills Sporting Complex.
Mary "Cruise" Edgecombe fired a three-hitter in leading the Wildcats to the impressive win.
Offensively, the Wildcats got a huge night from Jeannette Hilton. She finished 2-for-3 at the plate with five RBIs and four runs scored. Sharnell Symonette got on base twice with bunt singles, and Donnette Edwards had a huge two-run single.
Latasa Armbrister, Randell Cooper and Kara Collie shared the three hits for the Lady Hitmen. Thela Johnson gave up eight hits in the loss.
"This is the first night that we really got all of our players out, so everyone came out here with a win in mind," said Hilton on Saturday night. Hilton had a bases-clearing triple in an eight-run second inning, and a two-run double in a five-run fourth inning.
"Everyone was on point tonight, and we came out on top," she said. "The first couple games my bat was really off, so I feel good that it is coming around now. I feel very good with the way that I'm swinging the bat right now. I think we're going all the way this year - NPSA Championship as well as round-robin. We have a good enough team to go all the way through."
The Lady Hitmen couldn't get anything going offensively. They fell behind 10-0 after just two innings, and then committed five errors in the final two frames, leading to seven more runs from the Wildcats.
"I'm a little disappointed with how things went tonight, but we'll go back to the drawing board and see if we can get it together for our next game," said Lady Hitmen Head Coach Carl Johnson. "Every game is crucial for us. I'm confident that we could get it together. The pitching and the batting is starting to come around, and God on our side, we'll have the strength to pull though. We'll be alright," he assured.
During the early part of the 2000s, the Wildcats won seven straight NPSA titles and none of 10, but haven't won in the past three years. They are off to a perfect start this year, remaining undefeated through six games. The Lady Hitmen, on the other hand, dropped to 1-5 with that loss on Saturday night.

Family man and crime fighter laid to rest

By JEFFARAH GIBSON

Tribune Features Writer

FORMER senior commissioner of police, the late Stanley Riddell Moir, is no longer around to carry on a family tradition known as the AMGU Awards, which stands for "a Moir never gives up", but his grandchildren intend to keep the tradition alive.

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".

Building up a person, whether a family member or a stranger was just Mr Moir's nature. He loved to see people progress ...

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.
