A WEEK after Hurricane Irene swept through the Bahamas, cell phone users are still experiencing dropped calls and interrupted services, or no service at all.

BTC spokesman Marlon Johnson said that while the power plant in Nassau is largely online, some customers are experiencing disruptions in services as a result of BTC resetting its network.

Apologising for the service disruptions, Mr Johnson said "some of the exchanges have gone offline - what customers have been experiencing are dropped calls and failed calls which are just related to us getting our plant functioning."

Mr Johnson added that these issues are being addre ...

COB receives 82,000 from ministry toward program

The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture recently presented The College of The Bahamas (COB) with another financial contribution for the Scholar-Athlete Program, which currently provides financial aid for 57 students.
The program has significant implications for the development of athletics in The Bahamas and the recruitment and retention of talented Bahamian athletes from around The Bahamas. Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Dr. Daniel Johnson presented COB President Dr. Betsy Vogel-Boze with a check for $82,000 for the 2012/2013 fiscal year, which contributes toward tuition, books and dormitory expenses for the students in the program. To date, the ministry has provided $401,000 in total financial contributions since November 2008, and is the single largest donor to the program.
"This is a continuation of the government's support for this great institution of The College of The Bahamas and my ministry's support for the great student athletes of The Bahamas," said Minister Johnson. "We know that many of these students will become the leaders of tomorrow. We know that many of the CEOs of our companies here in The Bahamas and around the world are former athletes. We know that they may not turn pro in the sport that they are in, but they will make us very proud in the very near future," he added.
The minister also acknowledged the college's capacity to make a transformative impact on the development of athletics in The Bahamas. The minister has already requested the input of the institution's athletics department on the development of local sports academies.
"We have asked Mrs. Kim Rolle to begin thinking about how do we integrate a sports academy into the university atmosphere where we know that kids who come from the Family Islands who may not be up to scratch in their exposure to academics, may have tremendous potential (in sports)," Minister Johnson said. "I envision a sports academy as a boarding scenario with a year of intense language skills, math skills, science skills to bring them up to the level of college eligibility, but without them being left behind or falling through the cracks. I think there are so many ways to integrate these young people who have natural talents," he added.
Since the Scholar-Athlete Program was launched in 2008, the college has developed 14 student-athletes who were selected for national teams in basketball, track and field, soccer and volleyball. Director of Athletics at The College of The Bahamas, Kimberley Rolle, spoke of the need for sustained support from the ministry and the impact of the college's athletic program on national sports development.
"It is because of a partner like the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture that The College of The Bahamas' Athletics Department is now able to thrive and flourish because the reality is that student-athletes want and ought to be rewarded for their talents. One of the things over the last three to four years that we are very pleased with, is that we have more and more of our student-athletes who are a part of national team programs," she said. "We really see ourselves as the feeder for the national sports programs. Jamaica has proven that it can be done and we often say why not The Bahamas? Why not the College of The Bahamas? We certainly expect this partnership to continue and from it you will see the results of student-athletes who will now become national team members of various disciplines throughout our country," she added.
COB President Dr. Betsy-Vogel Boze said although the program is relatively new to the college, it has made a tremendous impact on the lives of students.
"Intercollegiate athletics is so important to developing our campus and activities, but it is important to developing citizens because those who participate in sports do better academically. They are more likely to attend their classes, to stay in college to finish, but they also learn sportsmanship and leadership and the lessons that they learn in sports aren't just on the playing field," Dr. Boze said.
Currently, there are 82 student-athletes at the college, 57 of whom are receiving financial aid from the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture. Of this number, 13 are from the Family Islands including Grand Bahama, Abaco, Eleuthera, Exuma and Andros.

BTC VSEP exercise winding down

Another group of Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) employees who accepted voluntary separation packages is set to leave the company at the end of March, said President of the Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union (BCPOU) Bernard Evans.
Yesterday Evans could not say how many employees will leave at the end of next month, because he had not gotten the final list yet.
He added that fewer than 10 people will leave BTC today in February's separation exercise.
The group represents a cross-section of employees, from technical personnel to administrative staff, Evans said.
The union leader said the employees who were given the separation packages were generally pleased with the remuneration they received, which in most cases averaged a little more than two years pay.
"For the most part everybody was happy, everyone could use a little bit more money for sure, that's why it was oversubscribed," Evans said.
Last year, 602 of the company's 1,100 workers applied for severance packages -- nearly 200 more than BTC had anticipated.
In April, the government concluded a deal with Cable and Wireless Communications, which purchased 51 percent of the company.
Yesterday, Marlon Johnson, BTC's vice president of marketing and sales, would not say how many employees will leave the company next month.
"We don't speak to the specifics of numbers and dates," said Johnson, who added employees have been leaving on a monthly basis since the separation process began last year.
He said most of the employees selected for the packages would have left the company by the end of next month.
While Johnson declined to give specifics on the separation exercise, he said a few more employees may leave over the next few months as BTC continues to restructure after privatization.
In addition, BTC has embarked on upgrades to its network, including its recently launched 4G cellular platform, since the owners took over the company.

THE Court of Appeal yesterday denied an attorney's request to recuse herself from an appeal case where her client was re-sentenced to life in prison for murder.

Monique Gomez, defence attorney for Ellison Smith, told appellate court justices she wished to withdraw from the case because representing Smith would be a "conflict", as she had worked for the Attorney General's office while her client was prosecuted and convicted of murder.

She told the court she had only learned of this fact recently when meeting her client.

Freak storm hits

Severe weather ripped through portions of southeastern New Providence yesterday morning, ripping down power lines and trees and causing roof damage to some buildings.
Although some residents thought a tornado touched down in their area, Basil Dean, deputy director of the Department of Meteorology, said the damage was most likely caused by tropical storm force winds.
"We had rather heavy thunderstorms which moved through the northwest Bahamas which I suspect spawned some straight line gust winds -- as opposed to a tornado -- which could have been anywhere up to 40 miles per hour and that is certainly capable of doing minor roof damage."
The bad weather also caused damage in some areas.
Dean said the weather should persist until this afternoon.
"The unsettled conditions will remain with us through Monday but by Monday afternoon we expect it to be in the central parts of the country," he said.
When The Nassau Guardian visited Malcolm Road yesterday, residents were carting away debris, patching up damaged roofs and assessing the storm's damage.
There were also reports of roof damage and torn trees on Marshall Road, Zion Boulevard and East Street South.
Celeste Ware, a homeowner who lives on Malcolm Road, said she awoke yesterday morning to find half of her roof missing.
"I woke about 2:30 this morning to loud wind," Ware said. "Then my husband and I went to the window and I heard a noise. We thought it might have been a tornado but we weren't sure.
"When we went into the hallway we looked up in the sky and said 'Oh my God, the roof is gone'.''
Homeowner Derek Rolle said flying tree branches smashed through three of the windows on the west side of his home around 2 a.m.
"I thought it was just a regular thunderstorm," said Rolle, who was busy clearing debris from his yard when The Nassau Guardian arrived on the scene.
"Then when I looked outside [and] I saw the trees were really carrying on bad; it must have been high-speed winds.
"Then I saw branches flying, so immediately I moved away from the windows."
Johnny Johnson, owner of Johnson Bargain Foods on Malcolm Road, lost most of his store's roof because of the storm. He said luckily the contents of the store were not damaged by rain.
"When I got up this morning and I came out, half of the roof was gone," he said.
Several politicians were canvassing the area yesterday and pledged to help residents.
"We're going to provide a dumpster and also see how we can assist those families that had damage," said Bamboo Town MP and Democratic National Alliance Leader Branville McCartney.
Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) Golden Gates MP Shane Gibson said he was organizing emergency crews and flatbed trucks to come to the area.
Renward Wells, the PLP's candidate for Bamboo Town, said the country's building codes need to be revised to ensure that homes can withstand such strong winds.
"We build for category five hurricanes but it now looks like we now have to look at the building code as to how we begin to strengthen our structures for tornado activities."
Winsome Miller, the Free National Movement's candidate for Golden Gates, said her group would do a full assessment on the damage and offer help where needed.
Crews from the Bahamas Electricity Corporation were working yesterday to restore power to Malcolm Road and other areas in south and eastern New Providence.

Sports minister wants lottery

Sports Minister Dr. Daniel Johnson yesterday called for the establishment of a lottery to fund sports development in the country.
"We now seek to assist the development of sports in the context of nation building," said Johnson during debate on the mid-year budget statement in the House of Assembly.
"We now know that sports is big business and we have to invest in our athletes.
"The time has come, and I would say to you all now that the gaming bill [has] come and gone, but I...would like to petition for a sports lottery.
"I would like to see the day when every Bahamian can participate in a lottery that is designated for sports for the entire Bahamas.
"...Financial assistance, Mr. Speaker, is now really needed to support our elite athletes. We have a pool of about 100 elite athletes...We have a pool of developing athletes coming up."
Johnson said he might return to Parliament at another time to make his case for the establishment of a lottery.
The idea of a lottery to fund sports and youth development programs has been discussed over many years.
Bahamian voters have already rejected the proposition, however.
On January 28, a majority of people who voted in a referendum voted no to the taxation and regulation of web shops and the establishment of a national lottery.
The government had taken the national lottery question off the original ballot, saying UK consultants had advised that it would not have been commercially viable in The Bahamas.
However, it later put the question back on the ballot amid great public pressure and debate.
But government officials had admitted they had no specifics on how such a lottery would work in The Bahamas.
The government had said taxes from web shops and the proceeds from the national lottery would have been used to fund scholarships; athletic and sporting development; music, art and Junkanoo programs and infrastructure, along with social and recreational outreach programs.
Web shops remain in operation as a court challenge is outstanding.

Red Stripe, Good News catch Lady Nathalie

For the first time in three years, the Lady Nathalie has been caught. Skipper Lundy Robinson and the crew of the Red Stripe sailed past the Lady Nathalie on Sunday to win the Sir Durward Knowles floating trophy, in the 'Catch Me If You Can' race.
This is the first time the trophy, named after Sir Durward, was presented, and it is expected to be the top attraction at all of the major regattas this year. The Lady Nathalie is usually given a significant head start, but boat owner Eleazor 'Barber J' Johnson said a key mistake four meters from the start line caused the sloop and its crew not to recapture its title. The Red Stripe was the first sloop to catch the Lady Nathalie on the 12-mile course, but the Good News won the overall race. The Rupert's Legend out of Mangrove Bush, Long Island, followed those three in fourth.
"Just a few minutes into the race the sail came down," confirmed Johnson. "The crew was able to fix it, but it came down again. We decided that we will fix it and go hard. To me it was a great race. The other sloops sailed good. We had problems, but only two boats caught me."
While Johnson and his skipper for the Lady Nathalie reflected on the mishap suffered on the sea, captain of the Rupert's Legend Tony Knowles said his crew wasn't about to let a broken boom stop them from competing. The accident happened just before the sloop hit the water.
Knowles said: "We asked the race committee to give us a little time after that had happened. We had the appropriate sail and rig on for the win, but it was short notice when we came down here to support Barber J. I am just happy that we were able to sail. We showed the support that we came down here to do. We are always happy to be a part of the camaraderie amongst sailors. The Rupert's Legend will be back. It will be ready and faster than ever for the Long Island and the National Family Island Regatta."
The Long Island Fundraiser Regatta will be held next month, in Long Island. The National Family Island Regatta, is set for April 24-28, in Elizabeth's Harbour, Georgetown, Exuma.

Baha Mar forms major art alliance

The mega resort Baha Mar has formed an alliance with the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) and the country's major art collectors that will provide an exciting new space to showcase Bahamian art.
Baha Mar President Tom Dunlap announced on Thursday night at the resort's topping off ceremony that Baha Mar is partnering with the NAGB, the D'Aguilar Art Foundation and the Dawn Davies Collection. Through the alliance, the NAGB will curate art works on loan from the D'Aguilar and Davies collections for the resort's gallery at the Baha Mar Convention Center.
The NAGB will also provide consultative services to help Baha Mar acquire and commission a diverse collection of new Bahamian art for the property's lobbies and guest rooms, Dunlap said.
NAGB Director Amanda Coulson described the alliance as a "galvanizing moment" for the culture industry in The Bahamas.
"It's significant that a world-class resort feels the NAGB brand and the Bahamian artists we champion are of such high quality that a partnership should be entered into and that we can use this as a strong motivation for visitors to choose The Bahamas as a culture destination," Coulson told Guardian Arts&Culture.
The partnership, she said, means that Bahamian art and culture are going to be at the forefront of the Baha Mar experience and will communicate the richness of the country's heritage to visitors from around the world.
"The space and opportunity they are affording us is also extraordinary both in size and scope, allowing NAGB to develop projects that we could not house in our current historical building; creating an artist-in-residence studio where artists can interact with visitors; commissioning and purchasing large-scale artworks - all from local artists - as well as providing us with a broad international reach without even having to ship a single work or person off-island."
The NAGB also worked closely with Baha Mar for the topping off ceremony.
NAGB chief curator John Cox curated the art segment of the ceremony, using a team of artists -- Chardo Barrett, Allan Wallace, Tyler Johnston, Jace McKinney and Sue Katz -- to illustrate the 'Roots and Wings' event concept.
During the formal segment of the ceremony, while speeches were being delivered, Barrett, Wallace, Johnston and McKinney created a painting on the stage. A replica of the painting was used as the official topping off 'tree'. Katz's piece "Roots & Wings", inspired by her "Cycle" installation currently featured in the NE6 at NAGB, was also featured during the ceremony.
Cox said it was an honor to be able to create the visual arts vision for the ceremony.
"Visual arts are growing in relevance and significance in the broader Bahamian community and this is evidenced by how institutions like Baha Mar are willing to put art in the forefront of such a significant milestone for the project," he said.
"It felt like the precursor to the collaboration that has already been solidified with (Baha Mar)."
In his ceremony speech, Baha Mar Chairman and CEO Sarkis Izmirlian said: "Roots and Wings. No other theme could better describe building Baha Mar. With our roots deeply grounded in authentic Bahamian culture and our wings made of a collection of extraordinary people and one of a kind world famous brands and alliances, the vision of Baha Mar is ready to take flight."
