After another successful year of students’ accomplishments and advancement, the Comprehensive Learning Centre is set to commence its 2011-2012 Academic year on Monday 5th September.
Island Hoops Anguilla Basketball Academy (“IHABA”) is holding its “1st Annual Basketball Drillz & Skillz Camp.” The camp accommodates three age groups, 8-12, 13-16 and 17-19.
Starting August 29th to September 3rd, the camp runs every Saturday until October 15th and is held at the Adrian T. Hazell Primary School…
Congratulations to Keiron “Speedie” Rogers, who set an Anguillian record for the 100 meters.
His 10:55 seconds time at the 2011 World Athletics Championships (in Daegu, South Korea) breaks a 20-year record held by Trevor Davis.
Congratulations, too, to coach Wilma Proctor.
Keiron did not proceed to the final rounds in the next heat, but world-class performances recently by “Speedie,” Shinelle Proctor (who set a personal best (PB) of 12:89 seconds at the same meet), and 17 year old Dee-Ann Rogers auger well for the future of Anguilla track.
Also, as Anguilla does not have Olympic status, remember to cheer for Shara Proctor who was asked by the UK to join their Olympic team. Anguilla has a medal hopeful for 2012!

From our local weather expert over at http://www.anguilla-weather.com/…
TS Katia (probably hurricane Katia by Wed.) is currently tracking to the NW about 2,100miles to our ESE. ALL forecast models call for Katia to pass well to our north on Sunday/Monday as a Cat 3 hurricane– currently about 300 miles north of AXA. Also, current reports show that the strongest winds will be to the north of the center – with 50 kt. + winds extending only about 50 miles to the south from the center. Sea swell forecast call for 10 – 12 ft. seas from the E and NE on Sunday – nothing extraordinary for AXA. I should point out that Crown Weather (http://www.crownweather.com ) stated in their report this morning that “…I am still leaning towards a track that takes Katia very close to, if not right over the northeastern Caribbean on Sunday and Monday..”, but not sure where they are coming from on this. No matter, with a possible Cat. 3 hurricane passing close to us, should keep a close eye on the track later in the week.
