DAMIEN Gomez, the PLP's Central and South Eleuthera candidate, believes his opponent Howard Johnson is "missing the point" about his ineligibility to run for Eleuthera on the FNM's ticket.
Yesterday, Mr Gomez responded to both Mr Johnson's and Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham's recent dismissal of claims that Mr Johnson did not meet the criteria to run as a political candidate for the current seat held by the Progressive Liberal Party.
Last Saturday at the Rock Sound International Airport, after greeting party supporters, Mr Johnson, who is on sabbatical from studies in Florida, spoke to the press about his ...

New Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Dr. Daniel Johnson is hitting the ground running.
Johnson used his first week in office to familiarize himself with several policies and projects that were set in place by the former minister Charles Maynard. He officially met with all the members of his staff yesterday to map out a way forward for the three departments under his watch.
Johnson said: "In the sports arena this is going to be a great year. We are going to the Olympics in eight weeks. We think we will medal at that. Our expectations are quite high. This year we are leaning on the men's team for a change. So the young men are going to come to the forefront and produce what I think [will be] one of the greatest results ever in Bahamian sports history.
"Next year we are looking at the CARIFTA Games and the year after, we have the World Track and Field Championships coming to The Bahamas. So we have three years of premier events in the sporting arena. Of course we still have sailing, boxing, cycling and tennis. We have some great tennis events coming. We have another Bahamian who has entered the world tennis scene. We have the swimmers who are doing very well."
Johnson believes that there is a broad range of things that will come together under sports, but there is a need to marshall and create a link to youth activities.
Bridging the gap is going to be a challenge, but he is up to the task. The first thing Johnson wants to do is build green spaces and implement programs to encourage persons. He said: "You don't have to be an elite athlete to enjoy games. You don't have to be an elite athlete to go out and have fun."
Bringing the various sporting disciplines to the people is another way Johnson will try to build up community programs and feeder systems. He will start with the Junior Baseball League of Nassau (JBLN), bringing the sport to Carmichael, in the Flamingo Gardens area. That program will be started this summer.
"We know we have about 400 young men and women who want to play baseball and softball," said Johnson. "That is going to happen. We are in the process of now going to build a new baseball stadium. We have to finish off the grounds around this present stadium. We have a master plan for facilities which is going to be very exciting. That is going to, once again, create jobs, reduce crime and foster youth employment and education. My ministry is going to take all of the resources we have to enhance that result. Beyond that, we have to do an inventory of the assets that we have and then we would proceed in finishing off the work."
Johnson would like to explore the sports tourism aspect further, noting that is why the master plan for this sports complex was designed. He said this department can bring hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.
It is not a secret that all the plans the new minister has will require more funding. He does foresee a 'slight' increase in the budget. If there is going be an increase in budget, Johnson knows that it will not come until the next cycle. He said: "This is not our budget cycle, so we are going to make some tweaks to it, but the next budget cycle you will really see our plan blossom."
Johnson is prepared to work with what he calls 'a great staff' who is very substantive. As a result, he expects that all the goals they set out to do will be accomplished with the resources that they have.

FREEPORT - Although Coletor Johnson was acquitted of murder, her co-accused Glinton Louis was found guilty of manslaughter on Thursday in the Supreme Court.
The jury returned around 7pm on Thursday with the verdict. They found Louis, 32, not guilty of murder by a vote 12-0, but instead found him guilty of manslaughter by a vote of 8-4.
Johnson and Louis were on trial for the murder of Markinson Justin. They were accused of driving a gold-coloured Buick Century when it struck and killed Justin on July 12, 2011 at Explorer's Way.
The case opened on Tuesday. Senior Justice Hartman Longley directed the jury on Wedne ...
Four years ago, Taureano Johnson was at the height of his amateur boxing career. At 24, he had just completed representing his country in quality fashion at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
However, a promising career would stall just two years later, with Johnson campaigning as a professional. In Beijing, Johnson did not win a medal, but he ended up being ranked the No. 5 amateur welterweight in the world. Johnson had made a nation proud. He was fabulous in the three bouts he engaged in. He totally outclassed Grenadian Rolande Moses in his first round match to advance for a meeting with the tough Olexandr Stretskyy of the Ukraine.
In this bout he was at this best. My view is that he was never better before and certainly not since. Stretskyy was tough and game, but the Bahamian had too much going for him. The result was never in doubt and Johnson moved on to the next round against Chinese national hero Hanati Silamu.
With the mighty hometown element in his favor, the tough Silamu got the points win, but in losing the decision, Johnson impressed the boxing world. His market value was solid. He had a number of options. He was approached by a number of professional-interest individuals.
There was though, the one very good option that I spoke to him about after his bout with Silamu. On the bus going back to the Olympic Village, I pointed out to the Bahamian sports elite that the offers for him to turn pro would come, but he had the great choice also of remaining an amateur.
That way, he would most likely retain his government subvention for the rest of his amateur career, enjoy traveling around the world, competing and representing the land of his birth. Also, the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) had made a decision to begin tournaments that would offer good purses for the top performers.
The first of these was scheduled for the Soviet Union in 2009. Most emphatically, I told the young boxer that as an amateur, all his expenses were paid but as a pro, he would have to assume full responsibility for his camp, airline tickets, training and medical costs, etc. He shook his head, in apparent awareness of the position he was in. As an amateur, his reputation was sky-high. As a professional, he would be starting all over again because he did not have a medal to boost his initial professional market rate.
Well, he opted to turn professional. He's has gone through management difficulties and his career stalled in 2010. He did not fight for a year and a half. He finally now seems to have picked up his career again. He won a fight in January to push his record to 5-0. However, Johnson is 28. The window of success is closing, rather rapidly.
I've painted this picture because Johnson has been a truly marvelous sports ambassador for his country. Perhaps, he will still hit a positive stretch that will take him into regional and then world title prominence. Then again, perhaps he would have been better off, staying on in the amateur ranks as one of the very best welterweights in the world. Athletes are thus advised always to seek to make the best choices for the future as competitors.
Best wishes to Taureano, but one has to wonder about what other high-level performances he might have had during the past four years if he had decided to maintain his amateur status.

Delta Airline's daily service to Nassau from LaGuardia Airport is already performing well, despite the service being reinstated just four months ago.
Sarah Lora, the airline's general manager for corporate communications for Latin America and the Caribbean, confirmed to Guardian Business that the route is looking strong. Tourism Director General David Johnson noted that Delta is satisfied with the load factors, which he estimates to be at least in the mid-to-upper 70s.
"They are quite pleased with the numbers and we are very comfortable with it. We met with them approximately five weeks ago and they reconfirmed their confidence in that service. It's now into its fourth month and it's contributed significantly," according to Johnson. "That service has done very well. Delta shared with us shortly after putting the flight in that they were a little apprehensive after being out of the market for quite sometime. However, in short order that aircraft and that route begun to perform just as strong as their major hub which is Atlanta to Nassau."
During its inaugural flight in March, the route was expected to bringing an additional 1,000 seats on weekly basis, as the flight can accommodate 155 passengers. At that time, Delta's Specialty Sales General manager Norma Dean told Guardian Business that, based on the inaugural flights and early bookings, this service is already looking strong and is on par with the airline's Atlanta service.
She estimated an 80 percent load factor on average.
This service should translate into The Bahamas seeing more than 50,000 additional visitors this year.
"Nassau lies within the 1,500 mile perimeter of New York. We are able to offer New Yorkers the paradise of an international destination and conversely offer Bahamian passengers the convenience of connecting to over 60 cities in the United States," she shared. "In New York, you will see plans for major expansion underway. Delta is investing over $100 million in major infrastructure upgrade to that airport."
The non-stop flight from LaGuardia into Nassau operates daily and began on March 2. It was in March 2010 when Delta Airlines discontinued its service to Nassau from LaGuardia.
These numbers are pleasing to tourism officials, as a senior government official revealed to Guardian Business that his ministry hopes to attract more than two million airlift passengers to The Bahamas.
"We are going after a million more seats for The Bahamas. We don't have the seats that we need. More airlift is coming. We are going after more business," according to Obie Wilchcombe, the minister of tourism.
"The whole idea is that the more bodies we get from overnight visitors, the more we are able to complement our tourism industry. We have to make sure that we get airlift because that is key."
Last week, United Airlines announced a new direct flight from Chicago and that service could translate into nearly 4,000 additional seats each year.
Don Robinson, the president of Baha Mar, previously disclosed to Guardian Business that the country needs 400,000 more seats in the market by the time the mega resort opens at the end of 2014.
The country received a total of 1.34 million stopover tourists last year.

Two choir members have differing opinions on how to win the national choir competition....

After suffering a difficult 2011, J.S. Johnson's consolidated net income declined once again, this time by 42.49 percent in the first quarter compared to the same period last year.
Falling from $2.61 million to $1.506 million, consolidated net income fell partly due to a declining revenues stemming from a rough economy.
"The business is not making as much commission as last year, as a result of tough economic times. Insurance is often a business that suffers," said Jamaal Stubbs, senior analyst at CFAL.
"Insurance is called a valued expense, but it is often undervalued. When you trying to make ends meet, sometimes it gets cut."
Although premium income remained steady, net commissions and fees fell 28 percent in the first quarter, according to the BISX-listed company's report.
"Net claims incurred is trending back to normalcy and is down by 59 percent. This was partly offset by an increase in net unrealized losses on investments in securities; however, total expenses were down by 7 percent, a step in the right direction," the report added.
The "normalcy" in claims was returned, management said, chiefly due to last year's unusual high claims from Hurricane Irene and major fires.
The company said "good news" could be found in that all major classes of business recorded underwriting profits in the first quarter.
J.S. Johnson expressed hope the second quarter would yield better results, and that the BISX-listed firm can still achieve budge projections for the year.
Total assets as of March fell by nearly $9 million, spurred by declines in reinsurance recoveries and reinsurance premiums. Liabilities shrunk by 17.45 percent to $42.97 million.
Despite recent difficulties, J.S. Johnson is known for high dividend yields.
The BISX-listed firm is paying 313 basis points above the current market average. J.S. Johnson managed to maintain 2011 dividend levels despite recording a 25 percent net income drop that year. Its experience last year was not abnormal. Hurricane Irene caused widespread losses across the sector.
An almost $1.7 million increase in net claims accounted for J.S. Johnson's $2.4 million net income drop.
Also of note for the company is the retirement of Marvin V. Bethell, the long-standing managing director. He will remain on the board of directors.

Giovanni "Mo' Fire" Johnson is primed to make a breakthrough in a sport that is rarely practiced here in The Bahamas.
The 27-year-old mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, who fights out of the 135-pound class, recently returned from a six-month training camp in Burlington, Mass., and now has his eyes set on a professional debut at home this December. He feels that he was able to adequately hone his skills, sparring and fighting against top notch talent in the field.
Johnson, who fights locally with Dr. Kent Bazard and the Beast Mode Fight Team, said that he is looking forward to his professional debut in December, and hopefully returning to the United States for more training next year. During his time in Burlington, he fought out of the gym at the Sityodtong Muay Thai Academy.
"Mixed martial arts is a global phenomenon right now, and to really get any consistent development you have to travel and take part in international camps and tournaments," said Johnson yesterday. "I'm just glad that I got the opportunity to experience that, and I'm looking forward to more opportunities in the future.
"The competition up there is very fierce, and that's what lets you know that you have to take your game to another level if you are going to experience any kind of success. The guys up there are really competitive - they're sportsmen. Even when they practice, they are constantly pushing themselves. Those guys hit hard and are aggressive, but it's very controlled. You have to always be on your toes as a fighter. It was good to be around that level of competition."
Johnson said that after the experience overseas, he is now ready to venture into the professional ranks. He expects to fight at the highly anticipated Bahamas Open Martial Arts Championships (BOMAC) at home here in The Bahamas, in December. If scheduled, it will be his first pro fight, and he's looking to make an impression right away.
"Back in The Bahamas, we're not too far behind, but we have to step our game up," said Johnson. "The only thing that they (foreigners) really have on us, is that they have been doing this for so long. I just started five years ago, and those guys over there got started at a very young age."
Johnson said that there's definitely a market for mixed martial arts here in The Bahamas. He said that participation is growing, and it's just up to them involved in the sport to continue to get the word out and seek financial support from the government and corporate Bahamas.
"We are just trying to open the government's eyes as to what is going on and where the sport is headed here in The Bahamas," said Johnson. "Nassau is small and there is only so much that you can do over here, but the talent is definitely there. For me, I felt that it would be advantageous, not only for myself, but also for the team, in terms of going away and seeing how we stacked against foreign competition. I would love to go back next year, even though we have good training over here as well. We have legit coaches here in The Bahamas. It's just more in abundance in the States."
Despite suffering a slight injury while in Burlington, Johnson got in a lot of work, sparring with notable proteges, some of whom were preparing for professional debuts themselves. He said that he definitely feels that he is getting better. He fought in the International Chinese Martial Arts Championships (ICMAC) in Orlando, Fla., this year, and captured a first place finish in his division.
"There was a guy, Rob Font, who was making his professional debut for UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), and he asked me to help him prepare for his opening fight because his opponent had about the same height and same reach as me, so he needed to simulate that," said Johnson. "I got into the ring with him and it was amazing. I was awe struck, but at the same time, I came to the realization that I'm in the ring with someone who is about to make his UFC debut, and here I am giving him problems. It felt good to know that I could do that. This is all I really want to do (MMA fighting), so I'm going to give it my all. From 2009, I have been pushing myself into this. I love it. The opportunity is there to succeed in this sport," he added.
His short time involved in the sport so far is one of the setbacks facing Johnson, but he is prepared to put in the work and make a career out of MMA fighting. He simply can't wait until his professional debut in December.
