The second consecutive Bahamas Bash Lacrosse Tournament was held in Grand Bahama June 29 to July 1 and attracted some 100 players, parents and coaches from Florida to the island. The event, organised by Bo Lamont, director of Bahamas Bash Lacrosse Tournament, helps to promote the sport of lacrosse. This year’s tournament was dedicated to the late “Mama Rose” who ensured “that there were diversity and inclusion where underprivileged students received opportunities as the privileged students around them.” Bahamian athletes were also taught how to play the sport from professional players and team coaches attending the tournament. Among them, Kodia Rolle, 12, found it fun and a great way to keep physically fit. Nuvolari Chotoosingh, manager of Niche Markets, Ministry of Tourism and Aviation (MOTA) in Freeport, said the tournament helps to promote sports tourism on Grand Bahama.
The public is invited to a “celebration of life” for lacrosse player Matt Stratman Thursday at Lakota West High School. The 15-year-old died Saturday, three weeks after he suffered a stroke and collapsed following a June 9 lacrosse game.

Police have charged the alleged driver of a car that went through a crowd of Antwon Rose protesters outside PNC Park last week. Gregory Wagner, 58, of Sewickley, is charged with recklessly endangering another person and summary offenses of driving the wrong way and careless driving. Channel 11’s Michele Newell confirmed with the mayor of Bell Acres that Wagner is a recently elected borough councilman. According to the criminal complaint, police used eyewitness accounts and video from that night to help them track down the driver. “Protesters were angered as they struck the vehicle, screaming that it struck several protesters,” the criminal complaint reads. “The vehicle turned left onto Tony Dorsett Drive through the crowd, pushing protesters out of its path.”

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
A 48-inch water main near Sansom and Juniper streets burst early Tuesday morning, leaving a sizable chunk of Center City Philadelphia barren and muddy just a day before Independence Day. The Philadelphia Water Department reported that it had shut down the main by 7:40 a.m., but hours later crews could still be seen cleaning up loads of debris left behind in the affected area, which stretched from Walnut to Sansom streets and Broad to 9th Streets.
Though police tape cordoned off many Center City intersections, pedestrians made their way through the affected area to get to their destinations, and some businesses could be seen cleaning up the flood water that had seeped in.
The entertainment company were only supposed to reveal a snippet of their latest drama Khali The Killer, however ended up giving away the whole film – for free. A clip titled Khali The Killer: Official Red Band Trailer emerged onto the streaming site as an 89 minute upload of the crime drama. It featured everything from the opening titles, to the credits and managed to clock up a staggering 11,000 views.
However, it appears Sony have realised their mistake and after it being live for six hours, have taken the film down. Since then no trailer has reappeared online and the only remaining remnant of the film is a bizarre broken link. Some sceptics have claimed that this is a marketing ploy for the film, but others aren’t quite convinced.
