Wonderful Success for Marine Conservation...
A month and a half ago, D'Shon Taylor started his journey, in search of netting a four-year scholarship to attend college abroad. The 6'6" forward was hoping he could impress coaches with his ball handling, shooting and rebounding skills.
After visiting three institutions and playing in jam packed gymnasiums, where college scouts could see him, Taylor 'banked in' that game-winning shot. On Wednesday evening, he signed a national letter of intent with the John Brown University (JBU) Golden Eagles in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. He will join the men's basketball team this fall.
"I came on this tour hoping to improve and secure a scholarship," said Taylor. "We played a few games, visited some schools just to get a feel of what college life is all about. It just so happened that John Brown heard of me after one game. They asked me to come in for a workout. They had expressed interest but really based their decision on my performance. When we were done, they pointed out a few things, so that was the start of our relationship.
"I am really excited but was more nervous about making the decision. I did my research and based my decision on the school's records and the workout we had that day. I think that the new relationship will assist with my game. I am looking forward to starting, and growing with the team. It is going to be an exciting journey and I am ready for it."
Taylor is a recent graduate of R.M. Bailey Senior High School. He led the R.M. Bailey Pacers to a Government Secondary Schools Sports Association (GSSSA) title and a Hugh Campbell title in 2011. It is reported that Taylor averaged 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists during his senior year in Pacers country.
"We are so excited to add D'Shon to our program," said men's basketball Head Coach at John Brown University Clark Sheehy. "We feel like he has the academic background as well as the athletic ability to be a real asset to our program. We are looking forward to getting him here next fall."
The Golden Eagles play in the National Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in the Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC). Their season is in full swing. The team has an overall win/loss record of 21-5.
Taylor said: "I think I can bring a lot of athleticism to the team. I can handle the ball and shoot pretty good, as well as play defense. I am very humble so I know that I can bring a positive winning attitude to the team. I want to be able to help the team out in any way possible. I look forward to working and playing with them. I want to grow with their program. I appreciate them for taking the time out and making this investment in me. I know through the help and grace of God, family and friends I will succeed. I owe it to my family to work hard. None of this could be possible without their help. I would like to thank my mom, Olga, and all those who gave me advice. The journey for me has just started and I know the future is bright."
Taylor is expected to major in electrical engineering. He will return home in a few days. Training will continue for him during the break. The 19 year-old is the nephew of former national volleyball team standout Cora Hepburn and brother of current national team member Davia Moss.
The Office of the Attorney General yesterday informed a magistrate that it will no longer prosecute Raymond Hanna for the murder of Cleveland Weir.
Police alleged that Hanna and Dudley Johnson are responsible for the August 27, 2010 murder of Weir at his home on Fowler Street.
Weir was shot in the chest when he opened the door to his home as two men were robbing the participants in a gambling game.
Darnell Dorsette, a prosecutor in the Office of the Attorney General, told Magistrate Ancella Evans-WIlliams that the murder charge had been withdrawn against Hanna.
However, the case against Johnson will proceed. He will appear before Senior Justice Jon Isaacs for an arraignment on January 14.

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."

Heavy rainfall prompted Air Traffic Control (ATC) officials to close Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) for about 30 minutes yesterday, causing a series of delays in flight landings and departures, according to an official from the Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD).
NAD's Communications Manager Shonalee King-Johnson said ATC made the call to shut down the airport just after 1 p.m.
King-Johnson said that at the time of the closure several flights were due to land, but had to circle the area until they were given clearance.
"Meantime, some of the departing flights had to be held due to air saturation, meaning flights that were in the air, we had to make sure that those aircraft landed safely and then release the others to depart," King-Johnson said.
"So the priority was obviously given to the flights that were in the air."
She added that five flights on the U.S. Departures side were scheduled to depart during the impacted timeframe and experienced delays of up to one hour.
Air Traffic Control official Keith Major said ATC ordered the closure due to low visibility.
Major said the control tower does not allow airlines to operate when visibility is below one mile.
Meteorologist Neil Armstrong reported yesterday that 3.8 inches of rain fell in the previous 24 hours at the airport.
Armstrong noted that thunderstorm activity is not unusual during this time of year.
He said slight flooding is also expected in low lying areas.
A severe thunderstorm warning was in effect up to 6 p.m. yesterday.
Forecasters said light rain is expected today.

A jury yesterday viewed crime scene photographs of a murder that occurred at Club Med resort in San Salvador in 2011.
Prosecutors allege that Rashid Dean, who worked in the laundry room of the hotel, stabbed his former girlfriend Oneika Johnson to death at her station at the resort's security booth on August 14, 2011.
Dean, who is on remand, has denied the murder charge at his trial before Justice Indra Charles.
Inspector Alfred Dean entered 52 photographs taken at the scene into evidence. The photographs were taken by Sergeant James Colebrooke, who is on sick leave.
The photographs documented the bloody scene inside the security booth, where Johnson's body was found on the floor between a refrigerator and a wall.
Her pants were unbuttoned, exposing her underwear, and a black-handled knife was under her leg.
Colebrooke photographed cuts on Johnson's arms, legs and chest. He also photographed a white van that was parked on the resort's property.
There were apparent bloodstains on the inside and outside of the van. Colebrooke swabbed the vehicle for forensic samples and photographed three fingerprints found on the outside of the van.
The case continues today.
