claim wrangle


may have cost


father his life


THE people of Abaco were
furious, last night after one of
the island's most popular char-
acters died in an ambulance on
its way to a Miami hospital after
being critically injured in an
accident at work.
They claimed that a 29-hour
delay caused by an official
wrangle gave part-time fireman
Stanton Chea little or no chance
of survival from horrific internal
injuries.
Within half an hour of 32-
year-old Mr Chea's death,
islanders were calling for a full
inquiry into the delay which
may have cost him his life.
"It is a ridiculous and
appalling situation," one source
said, "The whole procedure for
handling emergencies from the
Family Islands must be
reviewed.
"And, if possible, we must get.
the g6veriniieifoui-t f the
process. It is sickening that this
poor man was denied the treat-
ment he needed because of
foolishness in Nassau."
Mr Chea, whose wife Shelley
is three months pregnant with
their third child, received mas-
sive internal injuries when a
huge wheel rim exploded on a
truck at his business premises.
Mr Chea, a member of Marsh
Harbour's volunteer fire
brigade for more than 10 years,
suffered severe internal bleed-
ing in the blast.
The steel rim hit him full-
force in the stomach and chest,
crushing his ribs, puncturing his
lungs, damaging his liver and
causing devastating injuries to
both kidneys.
According to Abaco fire stal-
wart Mr Norwell Gordon, Mr
Chea had one and a half kid-
neys removed in emergency
surger.y.after .being-flown-intoe-
Nassau from Abaco.
It was then decided he should
be airlifted to Florida for a fur-
ther emergency operation. But,
according to Abaco sources,
there was confusion over who
should pay for what. As a result,
the flight was delayed for more
than a full day.
Sadly, Mr Chea died in an
ambulance as it dashed to the
Baptist Memorial Hospital in
Miami.
Mr Gordon told The Tribune:
"Everyone here is devastated
by this tragedy. Stanton was
such a popular member of the
fire brigade.
"He had to be flown into
Nassau on an emergency flight
and we desperately needed
blood to help him through this
crisis."
More than 30 people were
waiting at a Marsh Harbour


clinic yesterday afternoon as
hospital technicians flew in by
special charter to collect blood
from them.
A further donor appeal went
out to firemen in Nassau.
However, it was decided that
further treatment was needed
in the United States.
He said: "Doctors were trying
to stabilise him to a point where
he could be transferred to Jack-
son Memorial Hospital in Flori-
da.
"Stanton was fighting for his
life, and we all hoped against
hope he would pull through."
Mr Chea described by a
close friend as "a champion of
the Abaco community" was
accompanied to Nassau by new-
ly-appointed Marsh Harbour
fire chief Beverly Sands.
His wife was said to be
"absolutely devastated a ner-
vous wreck" and friends were
concerned about the effect her
husband's death would have on
her pregnancy.
The tragedy occurred at Mr
Chea's own business premises
at Pole Line Road, Marsh Har-
bour.
His company, Sunshine
Trucking, operates earth-mov-
ing plant, heavy trucks and oth-
er vehicles. Mr Chea undertakes
much of the maintenance work
himself.
It was while working on a
giant truck tyre that the explo-
sion occurred. A massive split
rim sprang off the wheel and
struck him.
Mr Gordon said: "He was put
on an emergency flight to Nas-
sau accompanied by Ms Sands,
who is the first woman ever to
become fire chief here. He was
still conscious at the time, but it
was obvious he had suffered
major-injuries."
He added: "The job he was
undertaking at the time is
known to be potentially dan-
gerous. These truck tyres are
very big and the rims are known
to shoot off from time to time.
"He is our chief mechanic
and, apart from being a fire-
fighter himself, he was always
on hand to repair our equip-
ment. He was a very popular
guy."
Mr Chea's death stunned
Marsh Harbour, but also
prompted angry calls for
improvements in emergency
medical transportation from the
islands.
One islander said: "We need
to get the government out of
this kind of thing. We have to
get these procedures into pri-
vate hands.

A BOMB scare at the United
States Embassy early yesterday
morning led to the closure of
Bay Street and the area near
the Embassy's Queen Street
office.
Although the situation was
determined to be safe by
7.15am, after a thorough inspec-
tion of the area by police, the
incident has US authorities
reconsidering a change of loca-
tion for the Embassy.
The alarm was raised after
Embassy security personnel


detected traces of explosives
during a routine surveillance
check of a delivery vehicle,
which was unloading at a neigh-
bouring restaurant near the
Embassy.
Speaking with the press at his
office yesterday, US Ambas-
sador John D Rood explained
that surveillance swipes of vehi-
cles in the vicinity of the
Embassy are conducted on a
regular basis, but that yester-
day's incident was the first time
that there had been a positive
detection of explosive materi-
al.
Following the detection, US


security staff then contacted
Bahamian police who respond-
ed immediately and closed off
the area, including Bay Street,
Ambassador Rood said.
"They did their own inde-
pendent testing of the trailer,
their tests also came up posi-
tive and not only that, it came
up positive for three types of
explosives, which raised addi-
tional concerns," he said.
The Ambassador said that
the vehicle's trailer was then
opened to conduct a more thor-
ough inspection of the interior.
However, police did not find
any residual traces or any evi-


Creditors

satisfied

with MP

Stubbs
By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
HOLY Cross MP Sidney
Stubbs' creditors appeared in
court yesterday to express their
satisfaction that his debt to
them will be paid in full.
A public examination was
held to determine the status of
his debts by Registrar of the
Supreme Court Estelle Gray-
Evans, who has been appointed
the MP's Trustee in Bankrupt-
cy.
The examination is a part of
Mr Stubbs' bid to have his
bankruptcy order annulled.
' The embattled MP who was
forced to resign as chairman
from the Bahamas Agricultural
and Industrial Corporation
(BAIC) over the Korean boat
scandal was declared a bank-
rupt in March, 2004. His appli-
cation for appeal was denied.
Since then he has been in and
out of court in an attempt to
clear his name.
Since the declaration, Mr
Stubbs has been barred from
sitting in the, House of Assem-
bly.
The government has moved
and passed several resolutions
granting him extensions to con-
tinue his appeals process.
If the bankruptcy declaration
is not overturned or annulled,
he will have to vacate his seat in
parliament.
After being sworn in, Mr
Stubbs confirmed that he was
a resident of Mount Vernon off
the Eastern Road and gave his
occupation as an international
lawyer and financial analyst.

dence of explosives, the Ambas-
sador said.
"At that point they deter-
mined that it was not a danger-
ous situation and allowed the
streets to be re-opened and
allowed our employees to come
to work," he said.
Addressing the first findings
of the investigation into the
matter, Ambassador Rood said
that "it appears that someone
involved in the movement of
the trailer somehow picked up
residues of explosives at some
point."

Gas dealers







hit back at:







Minis ter Ol:







price rises


By NATARIO McKENZIE


OCAL petroleum
dealers have hit
back at Minister of
Trade and Indus-
try Leslie Miller
for holding them responsible
for the rising cost fuel in the
Bahamas.
Yesterday representatives of
the Bahamas Petroleum Retail-
ers Association (BPRA)
appeared on the ZNS talk show
Immediate Response hosted by
Darol Miller in an attempt to
vindicate themselves from being
branded as "the bad guys" in
the debate over the rising cost
of fuel.
"I do not think that it is fair,
the way the minister makes his
comments, Bahamians are get-
ting the impression that the oil
companies and dealers are rip-
ping them off and that this not
true," said Ken Perigod, advisor
to the BPRA.
"Bahamaians need to under-
stand exactly how the price of
gasoline is structured," Mr
Perigod said.
"Right now the price of gaso-'
line averages at about $3.83, and
if you remove the government's
$1.20 tax, you will be down to
i $2.63. The dealers only make
44 cents and oil companies
t make 33 cents." he said.
"Gasoline is landed here at


'I do not think that it is fair. The

way the minister makes his

comments, Bahamians are

getting the impression that the

oil companies and dealers

are ripping them off.'


$1.87 a gallon and the govern-
ment immediately puts on $1.20
tax. The oil companies cannot
pump the gas from the."ship
until the government has been
paid .
When it goes to the oil com-
panies, they add 44 cents -
that's how we reach at the $3,.83
cents." Mr Perigod explained.
According to Texaco retailer
Oswald Moore, the margin local
retailers place on gasoline is rel-
atively low.
"The 44 cents per gallon that
we make is low," said Oswald
Moore. "The minister said
recently that we haveW the high-
est dealtegs:margsih~'inth'K
region, that is not so."
According to Mr Moore, the
dealers margin in Bermuda is
.95 cents.
Chairman of the BPRA Gar-


ner Dawkins noted that the
Bahamas presently has a
"fixed" dealers margin.
"Our margins are fixed at 44
cents. As the price of gasoline
increases, as a percentage, our
margins decrease. We have
been making 44 cents since 2002
and that has not changed
regardless of fluctuation," he
said.
On the other hand, the deal-
ers explained, the government's
cut of the gas price not fixed at
a price but at a certain percent-
age. This means that as the
price goes up, the amount of
tax goes up as well.
"We have been explaining
our plight with minister Miller
since day one, and we found it
very disheartening that at the
end of the day, the minister has
decided to throw us in the same
boat with the oil companies. He
is classifying the dealers with
the oil companies," Mr
Dawkins said.
The guests all expressed their
confusion over Minister Miller's
proposed establishment of a
national gas corporation.
"It sounds like he is going to
put the oil companies out of
business as well as the dealers,"
said Mr. Perigod. We are con-
cerned about this proposed gov-
ernment corporation. If we
depend on Venezuela there is
some sort of instability in that
region leave gasoline in the
hands of the hands of the oil,
companies they are the profes-
sionals, the government should
not get involved."

BY NATARIO McKENZIE

MINISTER of Trade and
Industry Leslie Miller appeared
on the talk show Immediate
Response yesterday to defend
the rate of government taxation
on imported fuel.
Mr Miller joined representa-
tives of the Bahamas Petrole-
um Retailers Association
(BPRA) on the show to debate
on the rising cost of fuel in the
Bahamas.
"I do not want people to get
off track with this talk about
government taxes, it is not the
government's taxes, it is the
people of this country's taxes,"
he said.
Mr Miller said the govern-
ment imposed tax on fuel,
which brings in $70 million a
year, is similar to other govern-
ment taxes that are necessary
to finance the upkeep of the
country and provide services to
the Bahamian people.
"The government is a repre-
sentative of the people and has
the obligation to impose what-
ever taxes it likes," Mr Miller
said.
He said the markup imposed
on fuel imported to the
Bahamas is unfair and the high-
est in the region.

He once again pointed out
the need for the establishment
for a national energy corpora-
tion, which would ultimately
eliminate the "middle men" by
importing fuel directly to the
Bahamas.
Chairman of the BPRA Gar-
ner Dawkins told Mr Miller that
he had never opposed the idea
of a national energy corpora-
tion however admitted that he
had reservations about the
issue.
"We as the dealers are have
shown you how difficult it is to
survive on 44 cents." Mr
Dawkins said.
He asked how petroleum
businesses would supposed to
generate revenue if this margin
was reduced.


"I am not out to destroy any
industry," Mr Miller said in
response to remarks.
I am here to protect the con-
sumers in this country by being
fair and equitable to all those
concerned," he stated.
Minister Miller said an inde-
pendent committee has been
established to research and
determine a fair dealers' margin
and is set to meet sometime
next week.
He said the committee would
then hold talks with the various
local petroleum distributors.
Mr Miller pointed out that
the rising price of oil is a global
issue. He argued that the con-
sumer was being hurt while the
oil companies are seeing higher
profit margins each month.

Officers face possible





demotion over escape


By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
THE six prison officers guarding a rapist who
escaped earlier this year from Her Majesty's
Prison may face demotion if found guilty of
dereliction of duty.
A report on their hearing may be released
sometime next week.
The officers appeared before a special prison
tribunal headed by Deputy Superintendent
Charles Rolle, who has primary responsibility for
security matters at the prison.
Prisoner Barry Parcoi was recaptured on
March 10 at Fresh Creek, Andros and was later
sentenced to two years imprisonment for the
escape, while three men and one woman were
charged with illegally harbouring him.
Parcoi, 43, was serving a life sentence for rape


Report into hearing on rapist's prison

break may be released next week


and forcible detention with intent, as well as a 20-
year sentence for armed robbery when he
escaped the prison in March.
He had been moved to the medium security
wing of the prison two years ago, after serving 19
years in maximum security.
Prison officials suspect that Parcoi, who has a
long list of charges against him including pos-
session of an unlicensed fire arm, possession of
ammunition and escape from lawful custody,
was able to break out through a bathroom wall.
The six prison officers who were on duty the
night Parcoi escaped Her Majesty's Prison were


charged with dereliction of duty earlier this week.
The internal investigation was concluded yes-
terday and a report may be issued on it by Mon-
day.
"The worse that can happen is that the officers
can be prosecuted for dereliction of duty. Under
the Prison Act they can be prosecuted.
"The more likely thing that will happen is that
they may be penalised by a demotion," Nation-
al Security Permanent Secretary Mark Wilson
told The Tribune.
The prison officers have complained about
the shortage of personnel at the prison; a situa-


tion which officials have acknowledged.
Mr Wilson said that the prison is in the process
of taking in a class of 50 persons for training as
prison officers.
"I have told the prison that they can go ahead,
when they are ready they will make that
announcement.
"We are going to increase the staff and over
the course of the next fiscal year the core of the
prison staff officers will be increased by 100," he
said
Mr Wilson said that there will also be improve-
ments to the physical infrastructure of the prison,
including a new 20-foot high perimeter wall.
"If you walk into Her Majesty's today and go
back in the next six weeks, you will have to go
through electronic screening, we will have elec-
tronic surveillance all over in addition to the
perimeter (being) more secure," he said.


Wrecked car ban



in public's interest


By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
MINISTER of Trade and
Industry Leslie Miller yester-
day said that the ban on
wrecked cars, which he hopes
will be in place at the end of
this summer, is in the best inter-
est of the Bahamian driving
community.
The ban will effectively bring
an end to a lucrative business
for many Bahamians, who
import the wrecks for a low
price after they have been
involved in collisions in the US.
According to Mr Miller, the
order for the ban may come
through the Ministry of Trade
and Industry by way of the
Standards Bureau, or through
the Ministry of Transport and
Aviation.
"This is really an inter-min-
istry committee. There is Trans-
port, Legal Affairs, Customs,
Road Traffic, etc. We also had a
meeting with the Wreck Deal-
ers Association and we listened
to their views. But my state-
ment is that we will do what is
in the best interest of the driving
community of the Bahamas.
"If the vehicle is not permit-


ted to be driven on US roads
then it should not be permitted
on Bahamian roads. A Bahami-
an life is as good as an Ameri-
can one and at the end of the
day we have to safeguard the
consumer. Even if that means
going against some of these
dealers' wishes," he said.


'We are doing

this ban on

cars you can't

get parts for.'

Mr Miller said that he is also
looking at imposing a ban on
the commercial importation of
used Japanese cars,, as there is
no local source of body and
engine parts to service the vehi-
cles.
He said however that his
would not impede individuals
from bringing in Japanese cars
for themselves.
"We are doing this ban on
cars that you can't get parts for,
because it makes no sense for


the Bahamian consumer to buy
a car and you are not able to
get any parts to service them.
Mind you, this does not prohib-
it persons from bringing in these
cars themselves. This is just
something that the government
and the used car dealers have
agreed on," he said.
Speaking about the importa-
tion of wrecked vehicles to the
Bahamas in general, Mr Miller
said the police force has shown
an interest in the practice being
banned, as they have noticed a
rise in theft attributed to that
market.
"The police are also onboard
with this because they noticed
that there is a ring that suppos-
edly steals good cars in the
Bahamas to put parts on these

"The insurance industry is of
that same mind set as well. Now
whether that is true or not I
can't tell you, but that's their
mindset.
"Now the dealers bringing in
the cars would say that that's
not so, but that's like the fish-
erman calling his own basket
stink. You have to take some-
thing like that with a grain of
salt," Mr Miller said.


Artist emphasises



volunteer time on



Clifton Cay project


By KILAH ROLLE
Tribune Staff Reporter
AS government officials tout
the progress being made
towards transforming the con-
troversial Clifton property into
a heritage park, one prominent
Bahamian artist wants to make
it clear that many Bahamians
have spent a lot of volunteer
time in order to truly recognise
the significance of the histori-
cal site.
Bahamian artist Antonius
Roberts spoke to The Tribune
in response to two comments
made by Minister of Work's
Bradley Roberts.
The minister acknowledged
the preservation efforts of Mr
Roberts and another artist at
the site, and also announced
that a number of jobs were cre-
ated in the initial stages of pre-
serving the Clifton property.
The artist said that he does
not wish anyone to get the
wrong impression and assume
that he or any other artists have
received any remuneration for
their efforts.
Last year, Antonius Roberts
and Tyrone Ferguson, both
sculptors, joined a special envi-
ronmental project started by the
New Providence Community
Centre two years ago, which
aimed to clean up the aban-
doned area of Clifton Pier.
The project began with the
initial intention of clearing the
area of derelict vehicles, trash
and rubble, but over time the
area, now dubbed "Sacred
Space", grew to have a more
profound meaning for those
involved.
Mr Roberts and Mr Fergu-
son transformed twelve trees
into figures overlooking Clifton


Pier and hung bells above the
figures in nearby trees.
"The work was done from the
goodness of our heart to show
the public, the government,
whoever, that we love this coun-
try so much," said Mr Roberts.
"Perception is very important
and we do not want it to appear
as though it is political, we took
our own initiative out of the
greatest respect for our history
and culture."
Mr Roberts said that the
artists are pleased that govern-
ment singled them out for
acknowledgment, however he
made it clear that "Sacred
Space" was not a part of any
government initiative.
"We have no problem join-
ing the government," he added,


"but only if it is done in the
right way."
The 208 acres of land on the
southwestern tip of New Provi-
dence has been a source of con-
troversy for more than a
decade.
After 16 years of political
debate, the government finally
paid Nancy Oakes more than
$19 million for her Clifton Cay
property and took full posses-
sion of the site.
The current administration is
about to embark on a pro-
gramme to transform the site
into the Clifton Heritage Park,
commemorating ruin's and the
civilisations which used to live
in the area from as far back as
the 1700s.

cannot stay




silent on




Cuban rights


EDITOR, The Tribune.
I HATE to say this, but
apparently my prediction was
correct as to the turn out of the
vote on a resolution condemn-
ing Cuba's Human Rights
record. In a resolution last
Thursday in Geneva, Switzer-
land, the 53-member United
Nations Human Rights Com-
mission once again voted to
investigate alleged abuse on
the communist island of Cuba.
This resolution renewed the
mandate to appoint a special
investigator by the United
Nations. Such appointment of
an envoy had already been
done in 2003, but Cuba has nev-
er allowed her to visit, especial-
ly after the envoy, Christine
Chanet of France had urged
Cuba to release imprisoned dis-
sidents and allow its people
freedom of expression and free-
dom of travel.
Of great interest with this
vote is the: fact that despite a
number of countries abstaining,
the margin of victory was high-
er than on previous occasions.
Countries such as Mexico and
the Ukraine that traditionally
supported Cuba now threw
their support behind the reso-
lution, leaving Cuba in an even
more isolated position in a
world where more and more
countries are now determining
their destiny through the demo-
cratic process. This resolution
was also co-sponsored by the
European Union.
Cuba's immediate reaction
was one of a complete defiance
by refusing to accept thefesullts
of the resolutionrvote. Irmiedi-.
ately, this resolution was con-
demned as "illegitimate and
hypocritical" by the Cubans!
Unconditionally, Cuba made
it quite clear that it will not
cooperate in any form with the
resolution passed against it by
the United Nations Human
Rights Commission in Geneva.
Those who supported Cuba
were hailed as "brave allies" by
the Cuban delegation. Those
countries that supported the
resolution were referred to as
"lackeys of the United States".
Cuba's Foreign Minister Felip6
Perez Roque described as
"pathetic" all the European
Union members. of the com-.
mission that voted against Cuba
and threatened them that "as a
consequence, Cuba's recently:
improving relations with
Europe will be reviewed".
Despite routinely ignoring the


resolutions passed against it,
Cuba does on one level pay a
great deal of attention to the
UN Human Rights Commis-
sion. At the last minute, Cuba
requested that the Commission
appoint an Independent Inspec-
tor to look into alleged Ameri-
can Human Rights abuses and
conditions among prisoners at
the Guantanamo Naval Base,
which Cuba describes as "a con-
centration camp". This request
in itself is so amazing as Cuba
on one hand has continuously
disrespected and disregarded
the authority of the United
Nations and on the other hand,
it is now trying to use the Unit-
ed Nations to further its politi-
cal objective. That is, to make
the United States look bad,
rather than demand a true
enforcement across the board
of the provisions of the United
Nations "Universal Declaration
of Human Rights"! At least at
Guantanamo Bay, the press and
independent international agen-
cies, such as the Red Cross, has
had opportunities to investigate
the prison. However, since Fidel
Castro took power in 1959, to
this day, no such privilege has
been extended to any individual
or reputable organisation. If all
is so well in Cuba, why doesn't
the government of Cuba show-
case what they are saying? Put
up or shut up!
This would certainly silence
'their critics.andidiscredit their
adversaries;tespecially the Unit-
ed States. Surely, it is reason-
able to conclude that Cuba's
reluctance to cooperate under
the avalanche of world and
moral concerns shows that they
do have something to hide. Are
they trying to hide the findings
by international watchdogs such
as Amnesty International which
has documented numerous
atrocities in the Cuban prison
system?
President Kofi Annan of the
United Nations has voiced a
strong concern about the lack
of effectiveness of the UN
Human Rights Commission. He
warned that the Commission is
in a desperate need of reform
and its loss of credibility is now
actually harming the United
Nations. The United Nations
must renew the public confi-
dence in the United Nations


itself and member nations' only
concern cannot be just protect-
ing their own national interest.
"The main intergovernmental
body concerned with human
rights should have status,
authority and capability!"
Human Rights Groups have
argued that the manipulation
of the Commission by member
states for political purposes is
damaging its ability to serve the
millions that suffer appalling
abuses. It is essential that those
member states who find them-
selves the subject of human
rights abuses be disqualified
from participating in the Com-
mission as any resolution must
be conducted by those of high
moral authority.
So, what is the position of the
Bahamas in this modern-day
human rights tragedy? In recent
times, the Bahamas has been
expanding its relations with
Cuba:. Regrettably, the
Bahamas appears to have con-
veniently sacrificed its Christ-
ian values in exchange for polit-
ical or diplomatic expediency.
Cuba's record of denial of reli-'
gious freedom and basic human
rights is well established. Yet,
the Bahamas Christian Coun-
cil remain silent in the face of
the obvious suppression" of
Christian values in Cuba. Does
silence means consent?
None other than the current
Foreign Minister of the
Bahamas, the Hon. Fred
Mitchell, is more aware of the
human rights violations in
Cuba. Prior to becoming For-
eign Minister, Fred Mitchell was
-credited for the relocation of
,Bahamians 'suffering under
intolerable conditions in Cuban
prisons to Fox Hill Prison in
Nassau. As bad as we say that
conditions are at Fox Hill
Prison, if given a choice, without
hesitation, an inmate will
choose Fox Hill. One former
inmate released from a Cuban
prison informed me that "at
least at Fox Hill, he was placed
in a cell; in Cuba, he was placed.
in a cage!" We can all remem-
ber the days when the Grand
Bahama Human Rights Asso-
ciation obtained photographs
smuggled out of Fox Hill Prison.
What was going on in Fox Hill
Prison was a state secret.
Today, Fox Hill Prison is well
on the way to reform (even
though at a slow pace). The fact
is the press and Human Rights
groups such as Amnesty Inter-

WHY YOU VEX?
"The minister of foreign affairs said some-
thing that struck me the other day. He men-
tioned that the government makes something
like $25 million on work permits for foreigners
to come and work in the Bahamas. He said it
like it was something that we should be
proud of, like it was a good source
of income. But think of how
much money these people
send home. That is a whole 10
lot of money which leaves
the country, much more
than the $25 million that
the Bahamas has.
$25 million is nothing
compared to what goes
out the country." /
Vey. Vex Vex.
"I am mad at the
way the Government
has handled the Cable
Beach deal. They gave
away that land. If gov-
ernment would have sold
that land at the market
value of more than
$100,000 per lot, that
would have been a whole
lot of money."
More from Vex, Vex
Vex.
"I vex with the way these
crazy people driving on the
streets of Nassau. They acting
like a bat out of hell. I don't care where you
have to go or how late you are, there are oth-
er people who use the street. Look at last
week, it was like a war zone. And it could be
avoided if people would have sense and realise


that a car is just like a gun. When you ain'
worried ya ga get shot, ya gatta worry 'bout
crazy people on the road"
S Russell
Nassau East.
"You know why I am vex? I am vex because
no matter how many times I tell people do
not give my diabetic child sweets, they still do
it, because they say: 'Man. this one li'l candy
ain ga hurt.' Yes it will idiot. My
daughter is only six, I can't
blame her if she has a lack of
control but she tries hard.
But grown people who
should know better just
make me vex as ....!"
Vex Mom.
"I vex at how money
the government bor-
rowed in two sessions
of the House of
Assembly for the hur-
ricane relief and the
Clifton land. Our great
grandchildren will born
into debt at this stage. If
certain ministers would
stop flying all ove he

they could've cut that bill

TRADEWINDS, the annual
multi-national maritime train-
ing programme, yesterday held
the closing ceremony of its
Bahamas exercise at the
Defence Force facility on East
Bay Street.
The Tradewinds 2005 exer-
cise is the beginning of a three-
year cycle of training events for
maritime security forces in the
Caribbean region.
The training is in preparation
for the provision of security at
the 2007 World Cup of Cricket,
which will be held in several
locations across the Caribbean.
Sponsored by the US South-
ern Command, the exercise is
designed to improve the inter-
operability of participating
countries to face trans-national
threats and to promote region-
al stability and co-operation.
US Ambassador John Rood
yesterday said how proud he
was in the progress of both US
and Bahamian forces as he
watched the demonstrations
throughout the week.

The plans also include 22,000
condominiums, four PGA golf
courses and a 'Moonrail' train
system.
A memorandum of under-
standing has already been
signed with the Grand Bahama
Port Authority and the devel-
opers received, approval from:
government in October last
year.
A pre-feasibility study, set
to be completed in June, has
started and the developers hope
to submit a detailed feasibility
study to government by this
December.
"MOON Bahamas currently
has some 130 professional
organisations helping create the
world's most spectacular resort
and real estate development,"
said Mr Henderson.
In addition to the Bechtel
Infrastructure contractors,
MOON Bahamas has also
appointed ground engineers,
specialists in strategic enter-
tainment marketing, lunar
excursion, and atmospheric
water generation, as well as con-
sultants for the monorail, traffic
flow management and manu-
facturers of aerospace replicas
and telescopes.

"It was great to participate in
the past couple days in the

proud of the work that* South
Command did in organising and
sponsoring the event but I was
extremely proud of the work of
the RBDF in actually organis-

US Ambassador John Rood
emphasised the importance of
justice being served regardless
of the nationality of perpetra-

"But I think that when you

Rood added.
The Ambassador acknowl-

first priority is to protect Amer-

Nevertheless, he said, US

The exercise earned over $5

were made for infrastructure

of the exercise.
Ambassador Rood said, how-

aspect of Tradewinds will be the
skills developed over the course
of the training.
"Yesterday we observed sev-

involved interdicting or stop-

that," he said.

corrected if our services are to
be of value to our clients as well :
as the ministry."
Works Permanent Secretary
Anita Bernard underscored the
necessity for the seminar in
order to continue to improve
and respond to the challenges of
an ever-changing civil service.
She said the civil service is
"slowly but surely transform-
ing itself into a community of
practice, where project teams
and informed networks will dri-
ve productive capacity."
"There will be constant iter-
ations of 'deliver, rethink, and
reconfigure' as civil servants
strive to produce better services
for their citizens," said Mrs
Bernard.
"The bottom line is that at
the end of this day, we want to
leave this room energised, syn-
ergised to think out of the box,
to redouble our efforts in our
respective spheres of operations
and to communicate, network
and collaborate more closely
and effectively," she said.
Terry Picket, owner of Terry
Picket Associates, an organisa- :
tional effectiveness consulting
firm, said he is working along
with SABL (BAHAMAS) Lim-
ited, and hoping to be award-
ed a contract to produce a long-
term solution to some of the
ministry's critical problems.
"The next steps are still unde-
fined at this point," said Mr
Pickett, "but ultimately there
are two things that should hap-
pen, the very critical problems
should be addressed early on
and the other step is to begin a
process of intentional develop-
ment of the organisation so the
problems don't reoccur.
"There is a difference
between solving a problem right
now and building systems and
process which prevent problems
in the future," he said.
Mr Pickett said that with
complex organisations such asi
the Ministry of Works, a con-
tract for development generally
requires at least 18 months of
work, and permanent improve-
ments could take up to three
years.

He revealed that monitoring

As the project progresses at

said the company would be bor-
ing wells for fresh water at the

benefit residents.
"We expect that residents of

Dr Bethel said that such an
immense development project
at Gold Rock Creek would
have some environmental
impact.
"In approving development
there is determination of the

one that is sustainable," he
explained.
He stated that an environ-

Dr Bethel noted that as a
result of various time con-

when certain works had been
started.
"The government accepted
that as a condition that an EIA
be completed in quickest possi-
ble time," said the minister who
said BEST is now in possession
of a substantive EIA report.

THE TRIBUNE












Reemmbering aor
Remembering a major


community


contributor


TANGIBLE
expressions of
gratitude continue
to ensue in the
wake of Canon
David John Pugh's death on
January 30 this year.
What is so ironic about the
whole affair is the fact that so
many events had already been
planned for this year to com-
memorate the golden jubilee of
St Anne's High School, founded
by him a half century ago.
Included in those plans were
arrangements to have Canon
Pugh, his sister Rita, and some
of their caring neighbourhood
friends brought to Nassau from
North Wales to participate in
the school's Founder's Day cel-
ebrations on May 24, Canon
Pugh's birthday. He would have
been 85 years old on that date.
In failing health, Canon Pugh
had left The Bahamas on June
20,2003, to reside with his sister
at her home in North Wales,
where he died some 18 months
later.
As God would have it,
notwithstanding Canon Pugh's
death, Miss Pugh and her
friends will still be coming to
The Bahamas this year. The
occasion, however, would be
somewhat different from what
had been previously planned.
She would be coming to partic-
ipate in the official opening of
Arawak Homes' neiv sub-divi-
sion in the Fox Hill area that is
being named in Canon Pugh's


honour.
Arawak Homes president Mr
Franklyn Wilson, a long-time
admirer of Canon Pugh, was
delighted to learn of Miss
Pugh's acceptance of his com-
pany's invitation for her to
attend and participate in the fes-
tivities marking the opening of
this particular sub-division.
Located in the historic for-
mer slave village of Fox Hill,
where her brother lived and
ministered for more than a half
century, the new residential
community will be known as the
Canon David John Pugh
Estates.
In keeping with the spirit of
the occasion, the faculty and
alumni association of St Anne's
School, together with apprecia-
tive friends of Canon Pugh,
have joined in to demonstrate in
a most tangible manner that
attitude of gratitude that we
wrote about in this column last
week.
In so doing, they have like-
wise invited Miss Pugh and five
of her neighbours to spend a
one-week vacation in The
Bahamas around the same time,
with their compliments. Those
five: Mr and Mrs Richard Kay,
Mr and Mrs Graham Knight,
and Mr Malcolm Brady had
been most supportive in assist-
ing her in caring for her ailing
brother during his stay in North
Wales.

day and Friday of last week,
featured teams from the fol-
lowing schools: Kingsway Acad-
emy, Faith Temple, St John's
College, Temple Christian, and
host school St Anne's. Its semi-
final and championship games
were played at the K G L Isaacs
Gymnasium a week ago.
In between the basketball
games, a cheerleaders contest
pitting Faith Temple against St
Anne's -School was held at the
same venue. St Anne's School
emerged victorious in that
event, capturing the judges'
decision with a spectacular per-
formance by its youthful partic-
ipants.
In the championship basket-
ball game that followed,
Kingsway Academy edged out
St John's College by a score of
28-26, sinking the winning bas-
ket with just one second
remaining on the shot clock in a
fiercely competed and exciting
contest.
The following students par-
ticipated in opening the
evening's proceedings: Philip
Clarke, Erinique Ingraham,
Chantia Musgrove, Olrica Turn-
quest and Devonn Knowles.
They rendered the prayer,
National Anthem, introduction
of guest speaker the Hon
Neville Wisdom, Minister of
Youth, Sports and Culture, and
vote of thanks, respectively.
Also addressing the gathering


was Miss Marie Roach, direc-
tor of the Anglican Central
Education Authority.
It was such a delightful and
encouraging occasion, one
which afforded us the privilege
of witnessing the wholesome
interaction between the parents,
relatives and friends of the chil-
dren from the various partici-
pating schools. It has always
been our view that varied pro-
grammes of similar activities
play an integral part in the
socialisation process of students.
The above form of socialisa-
tion enabled us to get along
with other students who were
smarter than ourselves, came
from more affluent homes, and
thus could afford better mater-
ial things than us. However,
teamwork made us all equal
when representing our respec-
tive institutions of learning in
various activities of inter-school
competition.
We were thus better
equipped in our post-school life
to accept success or failure with-
out resorting to anti-social
behaviour. This current gener-
ation of students, therefore,
deserves the same kind of
wholesome experience.
Think on these things.

'Rise to the Occasion: The

T uff Gong International of the Reggae Christmas and Reggae All-Stars concerts is doing
it once again, this Saturday night. "Rise to the Occasion: The Return of Sizzla Kalon-

The concert is expected to attract thousands of Sizzla fans, who have enjoyed his hits from
"Black Woman and Child", straight up to "One of Those Days".
His 2004 VP Records release "Solid as a Rock" became his most successful albums to date, both
critically and commercially. It contains a barrage of popular hits including "Mama" and "Can't
Keep A Good Man Down." The album was hailed by some critics as being the best album (reg-
gae) since Bob (Marley). Sizzla became one of the most requested artists on the reggae tour cir-
cuit selling out shows internationally.
"Sizzla Kalonji. It's the prophecy of reggae music. He is one of the prophets and has like six
hits on the radio now. Nassau loves Sizzla..," said Ali, Tuff Gong head promoter.

THE TIBUNESATUDAY, PRIL 3,O205, PGEW1


Trio


found


guilty


of


By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
THREE Grand Bahama men
were found guilty of manslaugh-
ter late Friday evening, after
standing trial for the beating
death of a 37-year-old Haitian
man last year.
After deliberating for about
five hours, a seven-man, five-
woman jury returned to court
around 7.30pm to deliver their
verdict on Tenelle Gullivan,
Renaldo Dorval and Don Del-
va.
On the charge of burglary, all
three were unanimously acquit-
ted. On the charge of conspira-


manslaughter
man" "


cy to commit murder and mur-
der, the three were also found
not guilty.
However, the jury decided
eight to four, that the three men
were guilty of manslaughter.
None of the accused wished
to comment after being taken
away from the Supreme Court
after dark.
Justice Jon Isaacs plans to
sentence the men on May 9.
On April 16, 2004, Roland
Orelus' body was found par-
tially burnt at a farm in Grand
Bahama. Near to the body, a
large, bloody stone was found,
as well as a live bullet and the
DVD movie "Top Shottas".
Also, a burnt-out Buick Le


Sabre was nearby.
According to police, Mr Ore-
lus' body was moved to the
farm. They said he struggled for
his life and was beaten to death
in Lewis yard, known as the
Haitian village.
According to 19-year-old
Delva and 21-year-old Dorval,
the real killers intimidated them
to help in moving the body from
Lewis yard. They said they
were at the home of Dorval's
sister, and after hearing argu-
ing they went to the front of
Lewis Yard to see what was
going on.
In their unsworn statement,
the youths said the perpetrators
are known as influential men in


the yard, who would "shoot you
or carry you somewhere if you
did not do what they said."
The youths said when the car
stopped and they were ordered
to take Orelus out of the car,
they lifted the body, but then
counted to three in Creole and
ran for their lives. Dorval
explained that he lost his shoe
as he and his friend ran through
the bush until finding a road at
sunrise.
Police arrested them at the
home of Tenelle Gullivan.
Gullivan told the court in his
unsworn statement that the
deceased was his friend and he
did not commit the crime.
Wayne Munroe, Gullivan's


attorney, told the court during
his closing argument that police
never brought any evidence to
court to say that the burnt Le
Sabre belonged to his client. He
argued that the prosecution
never told the jurors when the
car was brought to the farm nor
when it was burnt.
He asked the jurors to notice
the difference in language
between the statements given
by the young men from the pris-
oner's dock and the ones given
in the police report.
Mr Munroe also reminded
jurors that the single eyewitness
in the case told them he would
do anything to get off of a mur-
der charge and that his fear only


ceased after giving the police
the right statement.
The men named during the
trial as the "real killers" were
subpoenaed to come to court
as witnesses. However, the
three men never accepted the
court documents. A Freeport
judge reportedly sent warrants
of arrest out for the men after
they failed to come to court, but
sources say the men cannot be
found. A police officer admitted
during the trial that one of them
is known as "a big bouncer in
Lewis yard" and the other is a
well-known criminal.
At the trial's closure, defence
lawyers said they would be
appealing the case.

"Somewhere along the line there was a gigan-
tic cock-up here because a 29-hour delay in these
r circumstances is not acceptable."
A friend told The Tribune: "The original idea
- -" was for Doctors Hospital to deal with the situa-
|* tion. But a decision was made to transfer him.
a -l - "There was a plane ready to take him at
lunchtime on Thursday, but I understand there
"-- -" was some kind of wrangle involving National
Insurance and they were unable to get him out
until today (Friday).
'rov id e rs "One report flying around was that there was


not a single available trauma spot in the entire
state of Florida. We really need to look at the
whole process. This is simply unbelievable."
As the soul-searching went on last night, close
friend John Roberts paid tribute to Mr Chea,
calling him "a true champion of the community"
who involved himself in voluntary work in many
areas.
"This place will have a very large vacuum with-
out him around," said Mr Roberts.
He, too, was concerned about the procedures
which led to the long delay. "We need to have an
organisation not related to government that can
review this process," he said.

Bay Street shut



by bomb scare


From PAGE ONE
"The trailer could have been sitting next to a
trailer which was hauling explosives for legiti-
mate reasons, and right now we are working with
diplomatic security in the States to track where
this trailer had been, to get an explanation for the
presence of explosive residue," he added.
The Ambassador said that the incident has also
made the past debate on whether the Embassy
should be moved to a different, more secure loca-
tion, relevant again.
"From a personal perspective it has always
been my concern that the Embassy does not have
setbacks like we would like to have, and is locat-
ed in an area where buildings are very close to us.
"We are located on a side street and we have to
inconvenience a lot of people when they go to
their homes and businesses," he said.
Ambassador Rood said that although this has
always been a concern, he had never thought
about the impact that a potential danger at the
Embassy, one which required closing down the


Embassy as well as Bay Street, could have on
the city of Nassau.
"We are located in an urban area, not only in a
riskier location than I would like to see, but one
which would also impact the city so dramatically
should we have to evacuate and close down the
surrounding area," he said.
The Ambassador said that the discussion of
moving the Embassy for security reasons, and
also to be able to provide more efficient visa ser-
vices, has been an ongoing one.
"We are running out of space, even though we
recently expanded the visa section, the number is
growing all the time and we have to think ahead
and think about how to meet that demand," he
said.
Ambassador Rood explained that the Embassy
once owned property on West Bay Street, across
from the Marine House.
"We were contemplating building an Embassy
on it years ago. We sold it back to government
when the decision was made not to build. We
hope we can revisit that decision," he said.


Creditors satisfied



.with Sidney Stubbs


From PAGE ONE
The Registrar then showed
Mr Stubbs a copy of an audited
statement of his affairs which
he said was accurate and cor-
rect.
His creditors, Felix Bowe,
and J Ricardo Forbes and Roo-
sevelt Cox of Colina Insurance,
formerly Imperial Life, all indi-


cated that they had no ques-
tions or concerns about Mr
Stubbs.
However, Mr Bowe asked
him if he was a bankrupt, a
question that Mrs Gray-Evans
would not allow as she said it
was inappropriate.
The record of the public hear-
ing is to be verified on Monday
ahead of Mr Stubbs' appear-


ance before Chief Justice Sir
Burton Hall on Tuesday.
If he accepts the results of the
public hearing, Sir Burton could
address the question of annul-
ment for the initial bankruptcy
declaration.
Mr Stubbs also has an appeal
pending before the Privy Coun-
cil.

* HOME RUN celebration time for the Electro Telecom Dorcy Park Boyz.

I

* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports
Reporter

MOVE over TBS Truck-
ers, the Electro Telecom
Dorcy Park Boyz have
emerged as real contenders
for the New Providence
Softball Association men's
championship crown with
the arrival of veteran broth-
ers Edney and Edmund
Bethel.
In his second game in
their uniform, Edney 'the
Heat' Bethel pitched a two-
hitter to lead the Dorcy
Park Boyz to a 4-1 victory
Thursday night at the
Churchill Tener Knowles
National Softball Stadium
over last year's runners-up
Delsol Arawaks.

Historic
Thursday's game was a
historic one for the talented
Eleuthera clan as older
brother Edmund 'Charlie
Binks' Bethel also made his
debut in the league.
"Having them both as a
part of this team is a big
plus for us," said Electro
Telecom player/manager
Mario Ford, who was instru-
mental in luring the broth-
ers to the NPSA. "They
could help us with the expe-
rience that they bring to our
team to make the younger
players better. This is what
we needed.
"With a pitcher like


Edney and a player like
Charlie, only good things
could happen for this team,"
Ford added
The Dorcy Park Boyz can
forget about going unde-
feated as they did when
Ford played with the
Bethels in the Eleuthera
Softball Association back in
the 1990s.
But having improved their
record to 2-2, they are still
in contention for the
league's title.
And while the buzz in the
league surrounds the arrival
of the Bethel brothers, the
Ford brothers are also keep-
ing their name alive.
Andy 'Smudge' Ford led
the offensive attack on
Thursday with a 2-for-3
night, cracking a solo homer
and scoring twice.
Mario Ford also made his
presence felt with a 2-for-3
production and a run bat-
ted in.
Another Eleutherian
Windsor Bethel helped out
with a 1-for-2 night, belting
a solo homer as well.
Henry Moss had a 1-for-3
outing, scoring a run for
Delsol.
Despite the loss, the
Arawaks played a pretty
good game, committing just
one error, compared to the
two miscues by the Dorcy
Park Boyz.
The difference, however,
was clearly on the mound
where Electro Telecom
ripped six hits off losing


pitcher Anton Gibson.
Tonight, the Dorcy Park
Boyz will be back in action
when they play the hapless
New Breed in the 7pm
opener.
The 8.30 pm feature con-
test will be played between
the Proper Care Pool Lady
Sharks and the Degeo
Bommers.
The Lady Sharks are cur-
rently 1-2, while the Bom-
mers, last year's runners-up
to the Electro Telecom
Wildcats, are 2-1.
It's the first showdown
between two teams that
played as one in their debut
in the league last year.

Bounced
In Thursday's opener, the
Mighty Mitts bounced back
from a loss to Delsol on Sat-
urday night to knock off the
Nassau Cruisers 5-3.
Alphonso 'Chicken'
Albury picked up the win
as the Mighty Mitts
improved to 2-3, the same
mark as the Stingrays,
whose ace Rudolph 'Vida
Blue' Williams suffered the
loss on the mound.
Clayton Bowles led the
way for the Mighty Mitts
with a 2-for-3 night, scoring
twice. Ken Wood was 2-for-
4 with a triple and Michael
Kelly was 1-for-2.
Williams helped his own
cause for the losers with a 2-
for-2 night with a RBI.
Kalih Curry was 1-for-3.

IT SEEMS as if Mark Knowles and Daniel
Nestor have made the necessary adjustments to
the red court courts.
On Thursday night, they pulled off a big 6-3, 6-
3 quarter-final victory over the team of Sebastian
Grosjean from France and Dmitry Tursunov from
Russia to reach the semifinal of the US Men's
Clay Court Championships in Houston, Texas.
"We played really well. We're really excited
about how we're playing right now," said Knowles
on Friday in an interview from his hotel room.
"It was a good match for us. We really showed
that we are ready to play on the red clay court."
The red clay court is not a favourite of the last
year's world's best doubles team. But the top
seeded team played like they normally do on
their favourite hard court surface.
"We jumped on these guys right from the start
and got an early break," said Knowles, of their
first set decision. "We really didn't have any prob-
lems after that."
The second set was even more impressive.
"We broke them early and came right back
and got another break," Knowles said. "After
that, we just took control of the set and easily
won the match. It was much easier than we
expected."
So far, Knowles said he and Daniel are playing


as good as they are capable of playing.
"We are really looking good," he insisted. "But
we're still going to take it one match at a time.
You really don't want to get too over confident
and then you lose focus on what you have to do."
Knowles and Nestor were scheduled to play
their semi's match Friday, but they will have to
wait until today to play.
Knowles and Nestor's opponents will come
from either the team of Robbie Koenig from the
Republic of South Africa and American Brian
MacPhie or the team of Aussie Ashley Fisher
and Chris Haggard from the Republic of South
Africa.
"We're not concerned about who we play. We
will play either one," said Knowles. "We're getting
prepared for the weekend. We want to be in a
position so that we can play for the championship
title."
The final is set for Sunday. If Knowles and
Nestor survive, they will get to play for their sec-
ond title for the year.
"We're really excited about playing in this tour-
nament," Knowles proclaimed. "We really want to
win. But we know that we have to be cautious and
take it one match at a time. We have to get
through the semis first. Then we can concentrate
on the final."
