Tribute To Carmen Ottley, Jamaica 50 SKN Awardee

Profiles

liburdddBasseterre, St Kitts; 8 September 2012:  “Whatever time I have left, I’m going to give it to the Lord” says this St. Ann born awardee from Jamaica’s north-eastern parish.  This conviction has directed much of her contribution to the Region.  Mrs. Carmen Ottley trained as a nurse at the Kingston Public Hospital and the University Hospital of the West Indies in Jamaica.  Intermittently, from 1968, this Jamaican has lived in the Federation of St. Christopher and Nevis, the United Kingdom, Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica.  While living in Trinidad and Tobago, she used her skills and experience to set up and run a private health establishment known as the St. Augustine Medical Association, which she managed for eight (8) years before leaving that twin island republic.  The institution offered surgical, gynecological and other medical services to the community.  Over 25 years later, this mini-hospital is still in existence, offering much needed health care to the nationals of Trinidad & Tobago.

Codville Rogers

Profiles

Codville-RogersThe Kittitian-born Codville Rogers, a tall and lankily built left-handed batsman who is a natural stroke maker, possesses the sort of timing and finesse comparable to top-flight players especially when playing with a vertical blade.

While he remains particularly confident when executing cross-batted shots, it has often brought about his demise in some particularly unwieldy ways. He is most comfortable to fast bowling and his upright stance and free flowing arms allow him to pierce the offside field with utter grace. Against slower leather-flingers he is sometimes found wanting through a lack of positive footwork.

 Ironically, this manner of play, which befits a batsman with the least care in the world, has allowed him to produce substantial performances against high quality opponents. In a game against the England test team on their 2009 tour of the West Indies, his two half-centuries for the St. Kitts-Nevis Invitational XI left many spectators, a few journalists and perhaps some of the English players wondering why he is unable to play in an under performing Leeward islands team in the regional first class competition.
