Bahamians and Haitians is a
se4ous and growing problem,
according to Minister of Immi-
gration Vincent Peet.
Mr Peet called on residents
of all nationalities to co-oper-

S"It s serious problem that
we have been facing for over
50 N ears. and more and more, as
the population evolves, it will-
get worse," he said.
Mr Peet spoke with The Tri-
bune yesterday, in the wake of
the Wednesday's riot in Nassau
Village. Witnesses say the inci-
dent was sparked at least par-
tially by the use of ethnic slurs
during exchanges between
Bahamian police officers and
persons of Haitian descent.
The incident escalated,
according to residents, when a
police officer allegedly gun-
butted a 16-year-old girl and
shot a man in the face while he
was holding his small child.
-Police say investigations into
the.matter are continuing.
Mr Peet said that the incident

Final respects paid to Nancy Oakes
According to Mr Peet, the
problem of Bahamian hostility
towards Haitians is largely the
result of "frustration" with the
constant waves of illegal immi-
gration from Haiti.
"After years and years of
build up, although we are repa-
triating some, the numbers that
are here are much too high, and
that is part of the frustration,

"It's a very emotional probe-
lem, and a lot of education is
needed. The religious leaders
must now step forward to help
to bring calm and to bring bal-

is impossible to avoid an esca-

Attorney Maurice Glinton,

He further argued that funds

that such a venture was never

Ron Pinder reflects on
MPs' bid to defuse riot
* By PAUL G. TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
KENYATTA GIBSON, MP for the
Kennedy constituency, together with Ron Pin-
der, MP for Marathon, put themselves in har-
m's way when they voluntarily went into the
Nassau Village riot in an attempt to defuse a
situation that had spun drastically out of con-
Numerous residents confirmed that the two
MPs were there pleading with residents and
police alike, and that a 15-year-old boy stand-
ing next to Mr Pinder was shot in the hand.
"I was really there just to show support and
lend assistance to my colleague Mr Gibson
because Marathon borders Kennedy," Mr
He added that a number of police officers
acted inappropriately on Wednesday night,
but said he has been assured by Deputy Prime
Minister Cynthia Pratt and Police Commis-
sioner Paul Farquharson that a full and thor-
ough investigation will take place.
"I want to commend the member of parlia-
ment for Kennedy for subduing the level of
tension that existed out there that night. There
was also some extraordinary assistance from
some young men of the area to bring some
relief to that situation," he said.
Mr Pinder explained that the most impor-
tant aspect of assisting his fellow MP in restor-
ing peace to the area was that he himself was
able to remain calm, in spite of the chaos
erupting around him.
"Whenever there is a challenge, there is
always the need to be calm. I think that is
where I assisted the MP by maintaining calm
and keeping peace. We need to take a humble
approach to this situation and to each other.

"Whenever there is seen injustice and/or
wrongdoing, one of two things must happen:
either the injustice must be remedied, or the
injustice must be forgiven," he said.
Mr Gibson said the most important thing
that can happen now is the "healing of the
wounds that might have resulted from the
tragedies that happened Wednesday evening."
He said that tempers have calmed in the area. ,
"I'm always comfortable in the presence of
my constituents. I was in my constituency
office when I heard about it. I wanted to know
what was going on so I went to see," he said.
Mr Gibson explained that by the time he
arrived on the scene, the accident, reportedly
involving the Haitian woman, had already
"I didn't see the incident that led to the
altercation, or the shooting. I got reports that
an officer shot one of my constituents. The '
important thing is to find out what the root
cause of it was, so that we can learn from it
and make sure it doesn't happen again," he
The MP emphasised the law-abiding nature >
of the Nassau Village community.
"Let me tell you something, the vast major-
ity of the people who live in the Nassau Vil-
lage area are decent law abiding citizens who
I have the pleasure of serving," he said.
Mr Gibson said he was in the midst of the
crowd when he heard the gunshots ringing
through the night air.
"I don't know who was firing, it might have
been police firing warning shots in the air.
My staff from my office and the.persons with i
me advised that we should leave, and so we ,
did," he said.
Mr Gibson warned that "rushing to pre-
mature conclusions" is the most dangerous
thing people can do at this time. .
"Justice takes some time to come to the
forefront. At the end of the day we all want
justice. I've been assured by the Minister of
National Security that a full investigation into
the matter will take place. I'm certain and '
confident that this will be the case," he said.
Plans to complete runway
expansion by end of the year

Development Project plans
to complete expansion for
an 11,000 feet runway by end
of this year to allow for
direct flights from the Unit-

The project, which is a
joint venture with the gov-
ernment, would comprise a
resort and marina facility

PAGE 4, SATURDAY, JANUARY 29, 005TTHE TRIBUN
DAVOS, Switzerland That Iraq's elec-
tion can produce a representative and sta-
ble government is probably a forlorn hope,
and the lawfulness of whatever it produces
will be called into question. That is not
simply because of the ongoing violence
and the inability of many to vote. It is also
because the emerging government will
depend on American might, and that in
itself saps legitimacy in the eyes of many
Thus the dilemma for any Iraqi govern-
ment will be whether to cling to the Amer-
icans to stay in power, or risk chaos by
kicking them out to gain legitimacy. The
American face that most Iraqis see is brute
force kicking in the door, and the American
presence has become part of the problem,
not the solution.
Yet President Bush was right to reject the
pleas of those inside and outside Iraq who
called for elections to be postponed. First of
all the violence isn't going to get better
any time soon. Secondly, Iraq's Shi'ite
majority wants power now, and if elections
are the way to get it so be it. It is clear
from conversations here at the World Eco-
nomic Forum that Jordan's King Abdullah
is not the only Sunni Arab to fret about a
"Shi'ite crescent" running from Iran
through Iraq and Syria to Lebanon. As for
the Kurds, they will make sure that Bagh-
dad's writ never extends to their semi-
autonomous north, even if they do remain
in an Iraqi state.
Sunni resistance is growing into a nation-
alist cause. 'That is why intelligence esti-
mates are almost uniformly gloomy, fore-
casting tenuous stability at best, and, worst
case, civil war.
Bush maintains the optimism that won
him re-election and says that the armed
resistance is simply a "handful of folks who
fear elections." The party line is that the
insurgency is all the fault of Baathists, reli-
gious fanatics, foreign fighters, and crimi-
No doubt all of the above are involved in
the resistance. But this ignores the growing
ranks of Iraqis who may have hated Sad-
dam Hussein, but who now hate the Amer-
ican occupation more. The day that Amer-
icans might have been seen as liberators has
The irony is that the war in Iraq has
greatly strengthened Islamic forces in a
country that was once brutal but secular.
Islamic influence is growing because, as
the communists always came to dominate
resistance movements in World War II, so
are the Islamists better organized and high-
Both Shi'ite and Sunni religious forces
are going to come to the fore. This may
not result in an Iran-style theocracy, but the
Bush administration is going to.have to
accommodate a lot more of Islam, and
Islamic militancy, than it bargained for
when it went into the Iraq adventure.
Bush needs this election as part of his
exit strategy of propping up some kind of
elected government before the American
public starts to turn against the war. But so
far the building of a credible Iraqi army
and police force, the other leg of the exit
strategy, has not been successful. Not even
America's loyal ambassador in Baghdad,
John Negroponte, could support Con-
doleezza Rice's exaggerated figures for'
trained Iraqi security forces.
Bush knows, of course, that the situa-
tion in Iraq is not as he describes, nor has it
ever been. The search for weapons of mass ;
destruction has now been quietlyabanl--
doned, and the expansion of freedom has
become our reason for going to war. Bush's
bold inauguration speech also frightened
many who fear the consequences of Amer-
ica's missionary zeal. A political cartoon
making the rounds here has Bush dressed
as the statue of liberty leaning over the
Middle East with his torch igniting the
region. "The Untamed Fire of Freedom,"
says the caption.
The Bush administration has been
remarkably successful in reframing the rea-
son America went to war in Iraq, but per-
haps incoming American ground com-
mander in Iraq, Lieutenant General John
R. Vines didn't get the message. Among
the books he has instructed his staff to read
is H.R. McMaster's "Dereliction of Duty:
Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies That
Led to Vietnam."

EDITOR, The Tribune.
WHILE at a ground-break-
ing ceremony for the new Char-
lottesville home and community
development in western New
Providence on January 10, 2005,
Prime Minister Perry Christie
proclaimed that "the Bahamas is
headed for record economic
growth!" He then went on to
identify a few specific examples
such as the Clifton Pier Heritage
Park and some other New Prov-
idence developments, such as
the South Ocean Club.
However, the Prime Minis-
ter's optimism is not shared by
everyone. Many are crying out
for assistance or a piece of the
pie. The thousands of jobs
promised during the election
campaign are still at the promise
Nowhere else is this more evi-
dent than in hurricane-ravaged
Grand Bahama where it appears
that the economy is in a tailspin.
Even before the devastation of
the hurricanes, there had been a
softening up of economic activ-
ity as major projects such as the
Movie Production facility were
still on the drawing board. The
hurricanes just further compli-
cated the situation by putting
thousands of Grand Bahamians
out of work.
The state of desperation on
Grand Bahama today became
even more evident on Sunday,
January 16, 2005. After living
on Grand Bahama for 21 years,
I was used to taking a leisurely
stroll through the world famous
International Bazaar on a Sun-
day. This tourist Mecca was
always a beehive of activity and
the stores were all open with the
merchants displaying a big grin
on their faces indicating a
degree of satisfaction with the
,,obtisindss'take of the da\. I Was
aback, by the condi,tiop of the
Bazaar. At 2 o'clock in the
afternoon, virtually every store
was closed except for just a few
brave enough to stay open.
There were literally no tourists
around and only in one gift store
in the Chinese section did I see
two people I believed to be
tourists. Any prudent busi-
nessperson would have expected
a busy day at the bazaar as this
was the Martin Luther King hol-
iday weekend, and surely some
tourists would be expected to
come to Grand Bahama.
A reasonable explanation giv-
en as to the existence of the
state of affairs at the Bazaar is
directly related to the fact that
the adjacent Royal Oasis (for-
merly the Princess) Crowne.
Plaza and Holiday Inn Hotels
had been closed due to hurri-
cane damage. Apparently, along
with the cruise ship passengers,
the Royal Oasis is the lifeblood
of the Bazaar.
Therefore, it is essential that
all parties involved do whatever
it takes to repair and put the
Royal Oasis back in business as
soon as possible. The situation
on Grand Bahama is a state of
emergency as Grand Bahama is
operating with fewer hotel
rooms today than it did back in
the 1960s. This fact directly con-
tradicts Ministry of Tourism
officials who recently claimed
in a press statement on January
10, 2005 to the Freeport News
that "Grand Bahama is back."
Ironically, Our Lucaya whose
construction was severely criti-
cised by many of those current-
ly in government more or less
reopened a week before the
Christmas holidays appears to
be the catalyst that will start
bailing out the Grand Bahamian
The economic nightmare on
Grand Bahama is even more
exaggerated for the employees
of the Royal Oasis Resort.
Closed since September because
of hurricane damage, the future
of this hotel appears to be in
serious doubt. Announced dates
of a reopening have all come
Currently, the renovations are
at a standstill as the property
owners have indicated that any
further renovations depends on
them receiving funds from their
insurance company. This has
placed them in a position where
they cannot honestly indicate
with any degree of certainty
when the hotel might reopen.
To nahke matters' %orse, there
is strong speculation that the
owners of the Royal Oasis are:
merely\ hbuiing time as rumours:
are surfacing that efforts are
being made to sell the resort.
This of course is bad news for
the 1,300 employees.
Those of us who have resided
on Grand Bahama for a long
time are fully aware of the fact
that to close a hotel sale can
take forever, especially one with
all of the outstanding liabilities
that the Royal Oasis is report-
edly responsible for. This would
be a complete disaster for the
employees as they have not
been paid since the resort
closed. Most of them, like all of
us, have obligations that they
must meet on a timely basis.
Failure to meet these obliga-
tions can result in penalties or
denial of service. This mount-
ing frustration is now boiling to
the point where demonstrations
for justice are taking place, but
so far without any concrete suc-
The workers are feeling
abused, abandoned and taken
for granted! A meeting with the ,'
PLP member of Parliament, Ms t
Pleasant Bridgewater resulted
in only promises to work for a 1
solution. This meeting was -
described by Ms Bridgewater as
an "eye-opener experience!"
This is most surprising as prior
to election 2002, the slightest',
infraction of any labour law, '
especially where foreign work- j
ers were involved, was usually 1
immediately publicised by the
PLP candidates on Grand 1
Bahama. For the situation to
develop to this point and the
PLP representatives indicate
that they are unaware simply
means that they have lost touch.
Even more frightening is the
fact that the 1300 employees is
not an accurate figure as they
were the ones who were direct-
ly involved. What about the
straw vendors, the taxi drivers,
the tour operators, the tour dri-
vers, the persons selling time-
shares and even the persons
washing cars at the Royal Oasis
have been affected.
Therefore, one can multiply
the 1300 figure by a factor of
three or four to get a more real-
It is absolutely essential that
all of the parties involved come
to the table with clean hands to
assist the employees. The own-
ers must be more honest and
informative as to what is hap-
pening with the resort. For
many workers, the hotel union
has been a disappointment with
many workers indicating that
they have been left out in the
cold. With no other income, the
union should have provided
more benefits and direct assis-
'tainc'"ftt 'these workers. Any
tuture agreement ot represen-
tation ib the union must include
a better benefit package should
this kind of situation arise in the
Finally, it is up to the
Bahamas government to facili-
tate and moderate develop-
ments at the Royal Oasis. The
Labour Laws of the Bahamas
must be upheld. Suggestions of
financial assistance to the work-
ers by government must be
explored. The government can
recoup this money when the
insurance company settles or if
the resort is sold. This will do
much to ease the burdens and
sufferings that far too many are
experiencing here on Grand

Trade Unions call for removal

TWO trade unions hit out at the
president of the Industrial Tribunal
yesterday, claiming that he does
not have the necessary tempera-
ment to exercise judgment with
respect to the workers and the
President of the Trade Union
Congress Obie Ferguson called on
the government to consider remov-

"Our position is that he ought
not to continue to sit because we
cannot get justice from him. We
ask the government to seriously
consider that," said Mr Ferguson.
About 20 officers of the Trade
Union Congress (TUC) and the
National Congress of Trade
Unions (NCTU) marched in the
parking lot of the Industrial Tri-

read, "President of the Tribunal

Canadian hits out at $400
phone line security deposit
By KILAH ROLLE
Tribune Staff Reporter
A CANADIAN hoping to retire in the Bahamas is seeking legal
counsel after his recent encounters with public corporations in
New Providence, claiming they are guilty of extortion.
While applying for a residential phone line with the Bahamas
Telecommunications Company (Batelco), Mr David Craigie stum-
bled upon an issue that has been the subject of debate for several
years, the repayment of interest on security deposits..
His initial surprise came with the amount of money necessary for
the security deposit, which he said seemed very high.
"They want me to pay $400 to put in a residential phone line so
I can use the phone from a company which is a monopoly," he said.
"What exactly does Batelco do with that money?"
Mr Craigie also wanted to know if he would get the interest
back on his money when his deposit was'returned to him, and the
answer he received was no.
"So I went away and started thinking about this," explained Mr
Craigie."I went to two police stations to ask them to lay a charge of
outright larceny. That didn't go over too well, but they did wish me
After more thought and advice from an attorney, he is claiming
the practice is extortion.
"It fits," continued Mr Craigie, "extortion is an unreasonable
demand for money, which is exactly what this is."
Mr Craigie said that many Bahamians had since informed him
that it is normal procedure for them to get a significantly reduced
deposit back from public corporations after they cease using the
Along with police, Mr Craigie said he contacted the Minister of
Foreign Affairs and the Public Service, Mr Fred Mitchell.
Mr Mitchell told The Tribune yesterday that he is aware of Mr
Craigie's situation, and expressed sympathy for him as a consumer.
"On the other hand, I don't agree with the term extortion,"
said Mr Mitchell, "that is certainly excessive. As far as I am aware
he is not a resident of the country, but just like Bahamian consumers

"Beneath his photograph in St
Anne's High School's auditori-
um in Fox Hill is a plaque dedi-
cated to its founder, the Rev
Canon David Harold John Lau-
rence Pugh. The following state-
ment is inscribed thereon:
'The motivating force in found-
ing the school was an incident
that took place in the early days
of my ministry here. I was asking
a boy of about fifteen years what
his name was and, being unable
to understand his reply, asked
him to write it down. Imagine my
surprise when he burst into tears
at this simple.request. After
much gentle talking, he revealed
his to him great shame: He
could not read or write.
'Inspired by this.sad experi-
ence that occurred shortly after,.
AC K E Y
his installation as priest-in-charge
of the Parish Church of St Anne
on May 24, 1954, Fr Pugh moved
quickly to do something about it.
In an effort to insure that promis-
ing children of his poor parish-
ioners gained access to at least a
basic education, he started class-
es almost immediately with six
students in the church's garage.
This humble effort was, in
essence, the forerunner of St
Anne's High School.'
Recognising the need for
schooling generally in the Fox
Hill vicinity, Fr Pugh utilised the
old parish hall, built by Mr Josiah
Rahming, with 26 students and
four teachers under his leader-
ship as principal.
Due to the lack of class-
rooms and the increas-
ing number of students, some
classes had to be taught in the
church yard under the sapodilla
tree and almond trees, and in the
Over the years, as the school
flourished, additional classrooms
were built to the extent that out-
door teaching is now voluntary
instead of compulsory.
'The school was initially oper-
ated by St Anne's Parish Church
and managed by a board of gov-
ernors. The first members of the
board were Fr Pugh, chairman,
Dr Cleveland Eneas (deceased),
Mr Wenzel Nicholls, Mr Cecil
Bethel Sr (deceased);, Mr L V
Taylor and Mr Edwin Deal
In the late 1970s, it became a
Diocesan School under the aegis

In her book, Historical Notes
on St Anne's Parish Church, Mrs
Gladys Manuel, a former student,
writes the following: "In fact, on
6th January, 1955, the school
opened its doors with 26 pupils
and three teachers: Ms Audrey
White (now Evans) and Ms
Thelma Brennen (now
Demeritte), both of whom had
been taught by the Rector (Fr
Pugh) at St John's College, and,
of course, the Rector himself."
The Nassau Daily Tribune
reported on September 1st, 1957:
"Reverend David Pugh's
dreams have eventually begun to
materialise. Two years ago, he
held classes in an old shop, a
dilapidated garage and an old
hall with the hope that some day
he could build an adequate build-
ing for the fast growing enrol-
ment. Shortly after taking his
appointment at St Anne's
Church, Father Pugh was
approached by the people of Fox
Hill to open a grade school. With
no proper accommodations but a
keen sense of duty, he plunged in
and opened school."
Over the years, St Anne's
School has developed into a
flourishing and renowned educa-
tional institution and has a staff
of more than 60 teachers. Today,
the student population has
increased to more than seven

this was the case with the
most recent stranding.
In a 2001 article in Sci-
ence magazine, researchers
established a link between
such strandings and the
testing of Low Frequency
Active Sonar (LFAS) con-
ducted by means of Sur-
veillance Towed Array
Sensor System (SUR-
TASS), used by AUTEC.
According to Mrs Dun-
combe, the sonar inter-
feres with the sensory sys-
tem of marine mammals.
In October, 2004, when
a dolphin was stranded
near the AUTEC facility,
Mrs Duncombe said that
autopsies revealed inter-
nal bleeding in the ears
and brains of marine
mammals found in similar

toms were common to
mammals exposed to
In 2001 the Marine
Mammal Survey reported
to government that 16
marine mammals were
stranded on the same. day.
The report said 11 of the
mammals were whales of
the same species as the
one found this week.
The report acknowl-
edged suggestions that
"naval operations may
have somehow affected
the whales involved in
these events, as has been
surmised following at least
two other military exercis-
es in recent years in which
there were multiple
strandings of beaked
It said that this species
of whales is particularly
sensitive to "acoustic
activities and may be
frightened /disoriented by
sound sources and levels
that are not otherwise per-
manently damaging to
"If they are frightened
into habitats totally unfa-
miliar to them such as
shallow water, they appear
to become extremely dis-
oriented and may strand.
"Scratching their skin on
coral and hard surfaces of
shallow bottoms will cause
them to bleed, which in
turn may attract sharks
that further frighten and
injure them," the report
According to Mr Dele-
veaux, the Department of
Fisheries is also concerned
about the causes of the
stranding. He said that
when the matter was
brought to his attention,
he passed it on to local
groups with relevant
expertise, including the
Marine Mammal Survey in

had not heard about any

DESPITE getting knocked
dut in the quarter-final, Grand
Bahamian Timothy Neilly was
pleased with his first week of
competition at the Australian
Fresh from his victory at the
prestigious Orange Bowl in Key
Biscayne, Florida in December,
Neilly travelled "-Down Under"
in Melbourne where he reached
the quarter-final of the boys 18's
"I felt like it \ a a. pri It good
start so far for tlhi sear.' said
Neilly yesterday from his hotel
room. "I went into the match
feeling prcit\ solid and pretty
confident wiih my result the first
"But there were a lot of good
matches played here from here,
I can only go up."
The number seven seeded
player in the draw said he
learned a lot from his participa-
tion in the tournament and is
quite aware that there's a lot of
improvements he has to make
to his game.
"From here, there's just a lot
of little things in my game to help
me get better," he pointed out "I
knew those things needed to con-
tinue to get better.
"So it's just a matter of going
back home and continuing to
work on them and coming back
out and trying to improve on it
the next tournament."
As the firsi African-American
to wmn the Orange Bo\l's boy)
18's title in the event's 58-year
history and the No.10 ranked
player on the ITF standings,
Neilly said he felt the pressure
when he started playing at the
Australian Open Grand Slam.
"I just wanted to come out
here and get better. That was
what my coach was telling me,"
Neilly stressed. "But when you
win a big tournament, everybody
wants to play against you, every-
body wants to see what you have.
"So it's all about just bringing
your best game every day. You
know you have to fight because
everybody wants to beat you. So,
yes, there was some pressure for
me to succeed."
Neilly, '17, didn't succeed as
he'did in Key Biscayne, but he
will leave Melbourne to return to
Tampa, Florida to continue his
'training with a lot more vigour
-under coach Tarik Benhabiles.
"It was'a great start for the
year from my point of view. I
think I played about nine to 10
matches and so, for me, it was
.good to get that much competi-
.tion in." he noted.
"So I'm going to go back
4:,tome and work on my game and
ttust move on."
* After about a week of intense
"-aining at home, Neilly said he
: expects to hit the road again as
.1 e participates in a pro tourna-
-4ient in Memphis, Tennessee.
Neilly, however, has one wish
and that is to be able to play for
the Bahamas in the American
Zone II Davis Cup tie like Ryan
'Sweeting, another Bahamian
-who also played in the boys 18's,
.but was ousted in the third
"Ryan has been constantly
climbing and getting better," said
Neilly of Sweeting, who is cur-
rently ranked at No.40 on the
"I think every match he plays
vill be good for him and the
experience will definitely help
him. I think it will be great for
him, especially when he plays in
the Davis Cup."
As for Neilly, who was born in
Grand Bahama, but moved to
Florida with his family and is
now obligated to the USTA, who
provides him with grants and
sponsorship for his travel.
S"I have to see how things
work themselves out, but right
now I'm still with the USTA,"
"Maybe, sometime in the near
future, I will be able to play for

afterwards: "We played a little easy in the first half, but we picked it up in the sec-
ond half when we pressured the ball and we did what we had to do to win."
The victory stopped St John's bid for a perfect regular season in the Bahamas
Association of Independent Secondary Schools and forced a three-way tie for first
place between the two schools along with Jordan Prince William Falcons.
