Police seeking


two men over


Smith stabbing


By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
ST THOMAS More MP
Frank Smith does not think that
Thursday night's knife attack
against him was robbery moti-
vated.
Mr Smith, recovering in the
Princess Margaret Hospital
after being stabbed by two men
outside his Eastern Road home,
told Acting Prime Minister
Cynthia Pratt that he does not
believe his attackers had any
intention of robbing him.
He said that during the entire
incident the two men never
demanded any money or other
valuables from him, Mrs Pratt
told The Tribune.
However, at this stage in the
investigation police are not yet
able to rule out the possibility
that the attack was the result 6f
an attempted armed robbery.
Police are searching for two
suspects wanted in connection
with the stabbing.
"One of the men is described
as being short, heavily built and
of dark complexion, the other is
slightly taller," said Chief Supt
Hulan Hanna.
Mr Hanna said that police
were able to retrieve the knife
and a mask from the scene and
are now following a number of
promising leads.
Mr Smith suffered multiple
stab wounds in an attack in
front of his house Thursday
night.
According to police reports,
the MP was returning home
shortly before 9pm. He had just
got out of his white Ford
Explorer, and was about to
open his front door when he
was assaulted by two masked
men, one of them armed with a
knife.
"A struggle ensued and dur-
ing this ordeal Mr Smiith sus-
tained knife wounds to his
upper and lower back. After-


wards the two men immediate-
ly fled the scene," Mr Hanna
said.
Mr Smith's wife and daugh-
:ter, who were inside the house
at the time, were unharmed.
The MP was rushed to the
Princess Margaret Hospital
where he underwent a series of
X-rays which revealed that his
injuries were only superficial.
Mr Smith is now recovering
and is expected to be released
from hos al within the next
two days"
Mrs Pr who visited the MP
early FI morning, said he
was "i d spirits, only a bit
shook
"T ncident shows that
ther re people in the
Baha s who have no respect
for one, not for authority
Sfigu and not for the common
ma. she said.
T minister of national secu-
rity ]aid that she is always con-
cerned when she hears reports
of violence, "be it that the man
-on East Bay Street or the man
from Bain Town gets stabbed,
every incident like this saddens
me."
"Now is the time for Bahami-
ans to come together and help
the police and show that we;
have zero tolerance for crime,"
she said.
Free National Movement
leader Senator Tommy Turn-
quest, on behalf of his party,
yesterday expressed "sincere
best wishes" to the St Thomas
More MP.
"We were indeed shocked
and saddened to learn about the
unfortunate incident involving
Mr Smith and extend our
prayers and concern to his wife
and daughter.
"We trust that Mr Smith will
recover fully and continue to
make a contribution in our soci-
ety. We wish him well and pray
God for a speedy recovery," he
said.


The Bush Fire that threatened homes in the Coral Harbour area continued to smoulder yesterday,
forcing motorists to take extra care while driving due to the smoke produced.

Bush fire was largest




in New Providence


By KILAH ROLLE
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE bush fire that has been burning in Coral Harbour since
Wednesday morning has been reduced to smouldering ashes.
Firefighters are describing the four-mile radius blaze as the
largest bush fire in New Providence.
After leaving the fire scene yesterday morning, Chief Fire
Inspector Walter Evans reported that no businesses or homes
were lost. He said the inland fire was under control.
"The residents in the area can be assured that we have done
as much as humanly possible to make sure their properties are
safe and the inconveniences to them are as few as possible,"
said Mr Evans. "It was a tremendous challenge at times because
it grew at a rapid pace, but at this stage, the high-rising flames
have been put out and the fire is in the smouldering stage."
The emergency team that rushed to the blaze four Fire Ser-
vices Emergency crews, an airport emergency vehicle and a Red
Cross ambulance has since been reduced to two fire crews, who
will remain at the scene to monitor the smouldering fire. Once
reaching this stage, it may take days for the smouldering remains
to be completely extinguished.


Mr Evans said they used water as the principal suppressing
agent for the areas they could get to, but there were several
areas which they could not reach because they did not have the
necessary equipment, such as tractors.
He said that in cases where they cannot get to an area to try to
put out the flames, the only alternative is to let it burn.
"Luckily," he continued, "those areas were deeper in the
bush, away from any homes or businesses."
Volunteers were also at the scene, willing to assist the crews in
their efforts.
A 26-year-old Yellow Elder Gardens woman was one of the
volunteers attempting to put out the flames yesterday. According
to Mr Evans she had to be given oxygen at the scene for smoke
inhalation. She is reported to be fully recovered, but her experi-
ence has prompted residents to question their role in fire man-
agement.
A 32-year-old man living across from the affected area said he
spent many hours assisting the Fire Services crew, by helping to
divert traffic and even putting out flames with his own water
supply.

Florida police


kill Bahamian


A Bahamian was shot and
killed Thursday by Homestead
police, according to The Mia-
mi Herald.
Homestead police report that
-the man, identified as Jason
"Williams, 28, refused an order
to leave the front of a grocery
store and then resisted arrest.
According to the news
Release, Williams was outside
the store Thursday morning


when the officer, Anthony
Green, 33, arrived in response
to a disturbance call and
ordered him off the property.
The two men struggled, and
Green fired a shot that struck
Williams in the lower abdomen.
Williams was rushed to a hos-
pital where he was pronounced
dead on arrival. The officer has
since been placed on adminis-
trative leave.

BASED on a request by
Transport Minister Glenys Han-
na Martin, the United Limou-
sine Operators Association
have delayed their intended
court action against Kerzner
International, and extended the
two week deadline given to
Atlantis to Tuesday, May 17.
However, Dion Foulkes,
United Limousine Operators
Association (ULOA) lawyer,
informed the minister that if an
amicable resolution to these
demands are not forthcoming,


he had firm instructions from
ULOA to initiate proceedings
in the Supreme Court accusing
Kerzner International of break-
ing the Constitutional rights of
Bahamian limousine operators
and for contravening the estab-
lished transportation policy of
the government.
In a meeting at the Ministry
of Transport, held Thursday
between Minister Hanna Mar-

phone service


BAHAMAS Telecommuni-
cations Company yesterday
signed an $8 million contract
with Global Network Consul-
tant Inc and Norddeutsche
Seekablwerke to provide a new
submarine cable network from
Bimini to Grand Bahama.
Works and Utilities Minis-
ter Bradley Roberts said that
yesterday was a red letter day
for Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions Company (BTC) and out-
lined how Bimini residents will
benefit from the new system.
"The new fiber optic network


will relieve the congestion that
the residents of Bimini now
experience when attempting to
make a cellular or long distance
calls.
This new fiber optic network
will also allow BTC to offer the
residents of Bimini high speed
internet service and GSM cel-
lular services," he said.
NSW is a leader in fiber optic
cable systems, and work is
expected to being immediately
on the cable network. It is
expected to be completed by

INTREPID veteran climber
Dave Mellor from Freeport has
overcome another daunting
challenge by flying the
Atlantic in a small, single-
engined aircraft.
He and his pilot brother Bri-
an fitted a 140-gallon tank on
to a Cessna 172 before hopping
from Newfoundland to the
Azores and then on to Portu-
gal in a total of 18 hours.
Mr Mellor, 62, who has
climbed many of the world's
most challenging peaks, told
The Tribune: "It was something
a bit different for me. But it was
an interesting adventure and,
topped up my adrenaline lev-
el."





'I think there

were only

fumes in the

tank by the

time we

landed,'

Dave Mellor




The challenge came about
when his brother Brian, who
runs a flying school, had to
deliver the Cessna to Spain
from the United States.
Mr Mellor, a retired busi-
nessman, joined him for the trip,
picking up the plane in Bangor,
Maine, flying to Labrador and
then to Newfoundland for the
start of the transatlantic jour-
ney.
"We landed in a snowstorm
at Goose Bay, Labrador, then
flew on for six hours over the St
LF wrence to St John's in New-


foundland," said Mr Mellor.
"From there, small planes
generally take the northern
route to Europe, taking in
Greenland, Iceland and then
Scotland. However, the weath-
er was really bad in that direc-
tion.
"So we decided to fly direct
to the Azores, which was a 12-
hour hop with an extra fuel tank
aboard. At Newfoundland, the
sea was covered with ice.
"Over the Atlantic we kept
in,touch with Gander and New
York by reporting our position
to commercial airline pilots fly-
ing 25,000 feet overhead. When
they heard what we were fly-
ing, they thought we were
crazy."
They arrived at the Azores
an hour before the airport
opened. Rather than pay a
$1,200 fee to have the airport
opened early, they "buzzed" the
island until getting clearance to
touch down.
"I think there were only
fumes in the tank by the time
we landed," said Mr Mellor.
After a few hours break, the
pair flew on to Oporto in Por-
tugal. Then, the following day,
they continued their journey to
Spain.
Mr Mellor is now returning
to his first love mountaineer-
ing.
After a spell of rock-climb-
ing in Utah, he will travel to the
Andes in South America on a
mountaineering expedition,
then on to Russia before return-
ing to the Himalayas in Octo-
ber.
"Everest is a bit of a circus
at the moment, with so many
expeditions going on all at once,
but I might have another try,"
he said.
The last time Mr Mellor tack-
led Everest, he got above 27,000
feet before turning back.
One of his remaining climb-
ing ambitions is to scale Mount
Vinson in Antarctica, but the
peak is very remote. "It costs
25,000 just to get there," he
said.

Appeal date on


Extradition ruling


to be set in a week


By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Repo

AN APPEAL d gainst
the Supreme Court i g that
the Bahamas' Ext 'tion
Treaty cannot be enfo will
be set within a week.
The appeal against tice
Jon Isaacs' ruling hasi en
sought by the Attorney G er-
aFs office.
Justice Isaacs made the g
in the case of seven men w t-
ed by the United States on d ug
trafficking charges.
The men, whose legal team
was headed by lawyer Maurice
Glinton, presented an applica-
tion to the court, arguing that
the Extradition Treaty could
not be enforced.
Mr Glinton successfully
argued that article 18 of the
treaty called for the Bahamas
government to foot the bill for
all extradition costs. Howewer,
this charge on the Consolidated
Fund was never properly laid
before Parliament for passing.
Because of this the treaty was
unenforceable.
Under article 18 money from
the Consolidated Fund, or pub-
lic purse, would be used to
arrest and try persons wanted
for extradition.
Francis Cumberbatch, who
presented the case for the gov-
ernments of the Bahamas and
the United States, said the
Court of Appeal should move
expeditiously to hear this
appeal.
The seven men, who will be
affected by the decision, can-
not be released because the
judge has stayed the effect of


his ruling pending the decision
of the Appeal Court Justices.
Yesterday, Mike Taylor of
the US Embassy responded to
the decision. He said:
"We have taken note of the
ruling. The government has
stated its determination in
appealing the decision, and we
await that process.
"We've enjoyed good and
close co-operation with
Bahamian and legal authorities
on all kinds of law enforcement
matters, and we will continue
to do that.
"We (both governments) will
jointly decide what sort of
mechanisms best facilitate our
efforts. We do believe that the
treaty is an important part of
our co-operative relationship in
helping to advance our fight
against all sorts of crime."
The US State Department is
presently looking at the judg-
ment, but has offered no com-
ment "at this time".
Justice Isaac's decision read,
in part: "It is apparent... that a
copy of the treaty was laid
before the House on April 13,
1994. But it is also apparent
that the terms of the treaty were
not approved by parliament."
According to Article 130 of
the Constitution: "The Finance
Minister shall, in respect of each
financial year, at the earliest
convenient moment before the
commencement of each finan-
cial year, introduce into the
House of Assembly an Appro-
priation Bill containing, under
appropriate heads for the ser-
vices required, the estimated
aggregate sums which are pro-
posed to be expended during
that financial year."

'I'm


terrified Bahamas


could become another


Jamaica through


crime


THE Bahamas could become
as lawless as Jamaica or
Trinidad within 10 to 15 years
.unless it brings crime under con-
trol now, it was claimed last
night.
The stabbing of MP Frank
Smith prompted a new call for
action from the Rev C B Moss,
who said law and order was
now in crisis.
"What you see in Jamaica
today, with 600 murders a year,
is what you could see in the
Bahamas," said Rev Moss. "I
am terrified that this is what my
children might have to live
through."
The Bain Town pastor said
the Bahamas was "downplay-
ing" the reality of crime in the
country. But unless it confront-
ed the problem, chaos and anar-
chy was the likely outcome, he
added.
Declaring himself an optimist,
Rev Moss said that, with the
right approach, the crime situa-
tion could be turned around in
10 to 15 years.
"We have not gone over the
precipice yet. But there are too
many children without focus,
who live in an environment
where it's kill or be killed, and
we have to show them a better
way," he said.
Rev Moss, who said he is
today attending a funeral for a
young murder victim for the
second successive Saturday,
claimed the country's moral
framework was being badly
eroded.
And he said there was a dou-
ble standard at work, where
poor people caught the brunt
of the law while those with
influence went free.
He said there was "an alien-


Rev C B Moss speaks

out after MP's stabbing


ation, a disconnect" between
the people and the establish-
ment, with those in deprived
inner city areas having no faith
in law enforcement or the
courts.
"We are all downplaying
what is happening in our soci-
ety," he told The Tribune, "but
crime is destroying us. It is the
worst it has ever been in my
lifetime.
"There was a time when, if
there was a murder in New
Providence, people were talk-
ing about it for weeks. But now
people are becoming numb to
all this because we are not
responding appropriately.
"I think there is a breakdown
in respect for law and order.
People over the hill just don't
regard it. They feel that we live
in a society where it's who you
know and what you can get
away with.
"The little guy with no power
feels he is just grass for the
lawnmower, so he feels justified
in fighting back. There are too
many leading people in our
society labouring under serious
allegations and everyone knows
that.
"We don't seem to do the
honourable thing anymore.
People at street level have little
confidence in the system, in the
establishment, so they become a
law unto themselves." .
Rev Moss said anyone who
suggested! there was no double
standard would be laughed to


scorn. "People over the hill
think that the full weight of the
law is brought down on them
unfairly. The courts can longer
be relied upon. I am prepared
to raise war against what is hap-
pening in my society."
Examining the cause of the
present crime rate, Rev Moss
reflected on colonial times and
the decline in discipline since
independence.
"This trend began to mani-
fest itself after the British left
because the British were very
good colonisers. They are


'All of us are

culpable,'

orderly, efficient and good peo-
ple.
"Their attitude was 'don't
break the law and we will take
care of everything with a good
education system and a good
law and order system.'
"The problem now is that
after independence, when
nations tried to follow that same
model, the infrastructure, tra-
ditions and history were not
there.
."The French were not as
organised and caring as the
British, so things in their
colonies were out of control all
along. But the British believed
in organisation and structures.


"Unfortunately, those left
behind were not trained in
maintaining those structures.
We should have put in checks
and balances. That is where we
began to go wrong."
Rev Moss said in some for-
mer colonies in this region the
army was on the streets in an
attempt to keep law and order.
But the gangs were now attack-
ing the soldiers.
"In 10 to 15 years we could be
like Jamaica, proportionately
speaking," he said. "There is an
alienation, a disconnect
between the people and their
leaders.
"As a result, they develop an
affinity for the drug dealers.
They will not tell the police any-
thing because they identify
more with the criminals than
the authorities.
"They are people who may
not go out and commit a crime
themselves, but they have lost
confidence in the establish-
ment." Rev Moss said many
decision-makers felt removed
from street crime. "They live in
better protected areas, but that,
will not last. In Trinidad, they
are kidnapping and murdering
people who are from families
who can pay a ransom.
"Criminals are going to find a
way of saying you are not one of
us. But we have to ensure that
criminals don't get control.
Once they have control, it is
going to be difficult to get them
out."
The stabbing of Frank Smith,
said Rev Moss, was a re-Pinder
that crime didn't only appen
over the:hill. "Now is the time
for us to establish standard&:and
enforce standards," he added.
"All of us are culpable."


No 'untruths' allowed



at LNG town meeting


Leslie Miller
By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
TRADE and Industry Min-
ister Leslie Miller yesterday
strongly advised-opponents of
liquefied natural gas (LNG)
that the LNG town meeting will
not be a forum for "untruths or
trivialities".
Mr Miller was responding to
a request by ReEarth environ-
mentalist Sam Duncombe and
anti-LNG lobbyists Tim and
Hayden Riley for equal time to
present their case against the
AES company's proposed LNG
regasification plant on Ocean
Cay.
"Persons such as Mrs Dun-
combe and the Riley group,
wishing to have their decided
share of remarks at a town
meeting sponsored in part by
the Bahamas Environment Sci-
ence and Technology (BEST)
Commission and my ministry,
will not be a time for triviali-
ties, and untruths.
"The meeting is being held
to provide the Bahamian people
with the true facts; scientific

WHY YOU VEX?
"I am sick and tired of hearing these
politicians engaging in all this
you say I say. When are we
going to get back to work- /
ing for the people and deal- fj
ing with the issues? As far
as I am concerned, PLP C
is just as bad as FNM
and FNM is just as bad
as PLP. They are all
just an 'all for me baby'
gang." ,
My Vote for Cas-
sius.
"Allow me to put
my two cents in about
this whole Baha Mar
otherwise known as the
'sell our souls' agree-
ment. I vex that the gov-
ernment did not negoti-
ate better terms because
as far as I am concerned,
you cannot put a price on
paradise."
J McKenzie.
"I still vex at my neigh- '
bour's stupid dog who keep
overturning her garbage and
bringing it in my yard. I keep asking her to let
her son clean it up but she don't do nothing.


Make me so vex."
"Tired of the dog".
"I don't know why, when you ask people
how they doing they gatta go into every single
illness, ache, cut, bruise et cetera
they ever had and their family
ever had and after about 15
Minutes of depressing com-
ments they say, 'but other
than that I fine' you know
and these ain' like close
people who you'd expect
to confide in you."
S Pratt.



"I recently travelled on
Bahamasair with a group
of persons, my first time
in many years as I had
been put off by how late
they used to be.
However, I must say that
both flights to and from
Miami were on time, the
flights pleasant and the staff
courteous. They even pro-
vided all the newspapers for
us to read. I was very
impressed."

squeezed into the already over-
crowded maximum security
building, and little or nothing
was done to affect their reha-
bilitation a fact prison officials
acknowledge.
Almost a thousand inmates
were being held in a building
designed in the 1950s to accom-
modate about one third that
number.
The prison has functioned as
a penal institution, turning out
hundreds of people each year
without any real rehabilitation
and with no preparation for the
real world, Superintendent
Elliston Rahming said.
In recent years the recidivism
rate at the prison reached 70
per cent. By implementing the
Department of Corrections Act,
Minister Pratt said the aim is to
begin the process of social heal-
ing. ...........
Alongvwith ti&Act, t'forii.a'-'
inmate pireleaisep iwim w
be put iiiplace.
According to Mrs Pratt, it is
designed tb ensure that outgo-
ing inmates are "properly pre-
pared to hit the streets".
"We want to ensure that as
far as possible they have a home
to go to and a family ready to
receive them; that they have a
job interview awaiting them or a
path to self-employment; that
they have a church willing to
adopt them and a society willing
to keep an open mind so that
ex-offenders deserving of a sec-
ond chance indeed have a fight-
ing chance," she said.
The minister opened a new
state-of-the-art correctional,
educational and training insti-
tute this week, along with a clas-
sification intake facility
designed to properly organise
the housing of inmates.
According to Don Cleare,
head of the classification board,
"for the first time in history",
convicted murderers will be
kept with those convicted of the
same or similar charges.
Age, mental and physical
health, tenure and other con-
siderations will be taken into
account as prison officials
attempt to create an organised
housing system to compliment
the new Act.
Mrs Pratt said she wants to
see the passage of the Act cause
social changes in the country.
"If we don't save these young
men, they will return to society.
They will marry my daughter
and yours. If we don't rehabili-
tate them, they will become a
part of our families whether we
like it or not," she said during
the opening of the education
institute. Fifty recruits are
presently training at the facility,
as the Ministry continues to
address overcrowding and staff
shortages.
Mr Rahming said: "It is a
time of renewal and transfor-
mation; a time of further expan-
Mon and excitement; a time
when we believe again that we
can make a difference; a time
when we aggressively, indeed
entlessly in search of new vis-
of knowledge, new nuances
approaches to make our insti-
tution not a forgotten fortress,
but a buzzing, busy, bustling
centre for learning and self-dis-
covery."

NOTES TO BALANCE SHEET
DECEMBER 31,2004
(Expressed in United States dollars)


1. ORGANIZATION

Santander Merchant Bank Limited (the "Bank") incorporated on June 2, 1993 under the laws
of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and .is a wholly owned subsidiary of Holbah II
Limited ("HIL"). HIL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Banco Santander Central Hispano, S.A.
(the "Ultimate Parent"), a banking corporation incorporated under the laws of the Kingdom of
Spain.

In the normal course of business, the Bank engages in transactions with the Ultimate Parent,
Banco Santander New York Branch (the "Branch"), Santander Investment Securities Inc.
("SIS"), Santander Bank and Trust Limited (the "Trust") and other affiliates. These affiliates
are collectively referred to as the "Group" in the accompanying balance sheet.

The Bank engages primarily in proprietary trading and investing activities in securities and
other financial instruments.


2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

a. Basis ofpresentation The Bank's balance sheet has been prepared in accordance with
accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S.
GAAP").

b. Use of estimates The preparation of the balance sheet in conformity with U.S. GAAP
requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported
amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the
date of the balance sheet. Management of the Bank believes that the estimates utilized
in preparing the balance sheet are reasonable and prudent; however, actual results could
differ from those estimates.

c. Investments Securities are classified as available-for-sale when management intends to
hold the securities for an indefinite period of time but may sell such securities before
maturity as part of the Bank's asset/liability management (in response to changes in
interest rates, prepayments or other factors).

Securities are classified as trading securities when it is management's intention to sell
them in the near future to provide net securities gains. These securities are carried at
market value. Gains and losses on trading account activities, including market value
adjustments, are included in current period earnings. Obligations to deliver securities
sold short, but not yet purchased, are also carried at market value with gains and losses,
included in current period earnings. As of December 31, 2004, the Bank had no trading
securities on its books,

d. Foreign currency transactions The Bank's balance sheet are expressed in U.S. dollars,
its functional currency; however, the Bank conducts its operations in various other
currencies. Assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than U.S. dollars are
translated at their approximate market rates of exchange prevailing at the dates of the
accompanying balance sheet.

e. Cash and cash equivalents For the purpose of presentation in the statements of cash
flows, cash and cash equivalents includes cash and demand interest bearing deposits at
two major U.S. financial institutions.

f. Income taxes Under the regulations of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, the Bank
is not subject to income tax. Therefore, no provision or liability for income taxes has
been reflected in the accompanying balance sheet.


g. Recent accounting pronouncements In January 2003, the FASB issued Fin 469
Consolidation of Variable Entities an interpretation oj' ARB No. 51 Consolidaited
Financial Statement, FIN 46 was revised in December 2003 to clarify the application of'il
ARB No. 51 to certain entities. Fin 46 was adopted in its entirely by the Bank Ibr period.:
ending March 15, 2004. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on in
the balance sheet.

In March 2004, the Emerging Issued Task Force ("EITF") reached a final consensus on,
EITF 03-1, which was to be etlectivc for fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2004.
EITF 03-1 requires that when the fair value of an investment security is less than its
carrying value, an impairment exists for which a determination must be made as to
whether the impairment is temporary or other-than-temporary. In September 2004, the
Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued, and the Bank adopted, FS!P
EITF Issue 03-1-1, which deferred the clTective date of the impairment measurement and
recognition provisions contained in paragraphs 10-20 of FITIF 03-1 until proposed FSI' ...
EITF 03-1-a is issued as final guidance. The disclosure requirements of lilTF 03-1 were
previously adopted by the Company as of December 31, 2003 fobr investments accounted
for under SFAS No. 115, "Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity
Securities". For all other investments within the scope of EITF 03-1, the disclosures are
effective and have been adopted by the Company as of December 31, 2004.


3. INVESTMENTS

Investments at December 31, 2004 are all classified as securities available-for-sale. The gross ,
unrealized loss, gross unrealized gains and estimated fair value of securities at December 3 I,
2004 are as follows:


Available-for-sale portfolio:
Europe
Latin America
Total available-for-sale portfolio

$ 1,040 $ 212 $ $ 1,252
86,404 (15,389) 71,015
$ 87,444 $ 212$ (15,389) $ 72,267


As of December 31, 2004, the Bank's available-for-sale securities related to the tbtal
unrealized loss of $15,389, as shown in the table above, have been in a continuous unrealized
loss position for less than 12 months.

Included in the available-for-sale securities are Ecuador Brady Bonds with estimated market
value of $4,045,922 that are fully reserved for. The market value of this investment has been
estimated by the Bank's management in the absence of readily ascertainable market values.

Values of securities are adjusted for impairments in value deemed to be other than empor
The Bank considers the following factors in evaluating whether a decline in value is other.t'aan
temporary: (a) general economic conditions, (b) the financial condition and near-ter
prospects of the' issuer, (c) Bank's ability and intent to retain the investment for a period of
time sufficient to allow an anticipated recovery in value and (d) the period and degree to wiich
the market has been below cost. This evaluation is a quantitative and qualitative process,
which is subject to risks and uncertainties in the determination of whether declines in the fair
value of investments are other than temporary. If the impairment is other than temporary, a
direct write down is recognized in the Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Income as
a realized loss and a new cost basis is established.

As part of its ongoing investment monitoring process, the Bank has reviewed itwiest j
portfolio and concluded that, as of December 31, 2004, there was no other than tei rai'",*
impairment that had not been recognized and the securities in an unrealized loss position have
decreased in value mainly due to market conditions.

The Bank would have incurred an additional charge to earnings of $15,389 in the twelve
month period ended December 31, 2004 if management had determined that the Bank did not
have the ability and intent to hold, for the foreseeable future, those securities, as shown in the
table above, that have a market value below cost at December 31, 2004. Management will
continue to assess the performance of the Bank's securities portfolio and will conclude as to its
ability and intent to hold, for the foreseeable future, any securities with a market value below
cost at subsequent reporting dates.

securities by country:

BALANCES WITH RELATED PARTIES
In conducting its business, the Bank engages in transactions with alliliates that include
execution, clearance, settlement, custody, and short-term financing and investment
management. Amounts included in thile accompanying balance sheet pertaining to related
parties are as follows:

Assets:


(ash and cash equivalents
Interest receivable


OFF-BALANCE SHEET RISK AND CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK


a. Market risk In the normal course of business, the Bank enters into various contractual
commitments involving forward settlement for speculative and hedging purposes in
various local markets. These include financial luitures and options contracts,
commitments to buy and sell securities and foreign currencies. Commitments involving
liture settlement give rise to market risk, which represents the potential loss that can bhe
caused by a change in the market value of' a particular financial instrument. At
)December 31 I, 2004, the Bank did not have commitments to buy or sell foreign currency
forwards.

The Bank records all contractual commitments involving 1luture settlement at market or
Iair value. (onsequently, changes in these amounts recorded in the Bank's balance sheel
resulting from movement in market prices are included currently in the slatemnens ol'
operations and comprehensive income.

b. C..oCncentriMa o it'ltsk c.The, BaIIk .records securities transactions in conlbrmiity
withtrifie settlement cycle of the respective country, which is generally one to live
business days afler trade date. The Bank isltherelbre exposed to off-balance sheet risk of'
loss on unsettled transactions in the event counterparties are unable to Fullill contractual
obligations.

Management of credit risk involves a number of considerations, such as the financial
condition of' the counterparts, specific terms and duration of the contractual
agreements, and market fluctuations.

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

As of December 31, 2004, all financial instruments are short-term in nature and are carried at
fair market value.

CONTINGENCIES

The Bank's primary business is proprietary trading and investing in securities and other
ffinancial instruments. These transactions in the ordinary course of business contain a certain
Implied element of guarantee. The Bank's liability is limited to payment for securities and
,otlier financial instruments. The potential for the Bank to be required to make unreimbursed
S payments is remote due to the contractual requirements associated with the counterparty
a cities. Accordingly, no contingent liability is carried on the Balance Sheet.

EING in the
enviable position
of having all of
our children com-
plete their formal
education and commence their
respective careers in the pro-
fessions of their choosing has
afforded us the opportunity of
appraising their educational
development from kindergarten
to college.
In so doing, we could not
resist the temptation of reflect-
ing upon our own school days
and noting all that has tran-
spired in local education
between our generation and
theirs.
What really prompted us to
engage in this reflective exer-
cise was the obvious disparity
in the establishment of our chil-
dren's initial post-school prior-
ities and values in comparison
to our own at the identical peri-
od of our development.
In our time, educational
opportunities and facilities were
both extremely limited and
rarely extended beyond the all-
age school" level. The fortunate
among us considered it a
remarkable achievement if we
were able to receive a School
Leaving Certificate by the time
we bade our final farewell to
school days upon reaching the
age of 14 years.
When one looks at what stu-
dents of the immediate post-
World War II era have been
able to accomplish in this coun-
try with nothing near what stu-
dents of the post-1967 period
now take for granted in terms of
both educational opportunities
and facilities, the key to the
greater level of achievement by
the former group in compari-
son to that of the latter is clear-
ly seen in their respective estab-
lishment of post-school priori-
ties and values.
In our time we were taught
that upon leaving school, most-
ly at the legal school-leaving age
of 14 years, to first go and learn
a trade, which in those days was
mostly gardening, masonry, car-
pentry and to a lesser extent
plumbing. Commencing with
our first pay envelope, which
never came until we were rea-
sonably productive at our craft,
we had to set aside a portion to
pay on a lot of land. When that
lot of land was fully paid for,
we then had to start putting
down the foundation for a
house of our own. Such was the
establishment of our initial post-
school priorities.
On weekends and holidays,
friends would gather at our
respective building sites and
lend a helping hand in the con-
struction of our houses in
exchange for something to eat
and drink...and not necessarily
in that order always. By that
time most of the young men of
our day had already singled out
their potential life-mate and, by
the time they came around to
presenting her parents with
their letter and ring, were well
on the way to having some
place of their own to take their
brides.
Nowadays, it would appear
that in most cases all that has
changed. In a now independent
Bahamas, with all their univer-
sity degrees, big salaries, dope
money and big speeches, only a
small percentage of the genera-
tion that succeeded us own even
50 x 100 feet of this their native

land.
Where we sought and in
some cases had to pay to learn a
trade, some today graduate
from schools and even univer-
sities to the blocks; where we
took a part of our first pay
cheque to pay on a lot of land,
most of them now put theirs in
financing a flashy car; and
where we took our wives into a
house of our own, most of them
now look for the fanciest place
they can afford to rent.


our beautiful Bahamaland.
In our youth, whenever we
were to lose -something when
sent on an errand, we were
always advised by our elders to
retrace our tracks from where
we were to where we came
from and, in so doing, we were
certain to find that which we
had lost. Just as this bit of
advice was so effective with
individuals in the past, we do
feel that the same can bode well
for our nation today. For, what


When we look at what people
of the forties, fifties and sixties
were able to achieve with a little
education and plenty of com-
mon sense or mother's wit, and
compare it with the non-accom-
plishment of some of today's
crowd with all their modern
schooling, we often wonder why
we ever bothered to change our
old educational system.
This brings to mind an admo-
nition which the old folks in our
neck of the woods used to con-
stantly drum into our heads and
which we will repeat here-for
what it's worth: "If it ain't
broke, don't fix it!"


FOR


WHAT

IT'S


WORTH.
LIFE is an ever-revealing*
experience, and its messages so
unique and varied, that many
lessons can be garnered from
each single episode. Strange
though it may seem, it is never-
theless true that if 20 of us, hav-
ing witnessed a single event,
were later to be asked to,
describe the same, while we
would no doubt recite the iden-.
tical impressions, there never-
theless would be some aspects
that each of us would have seen
differently.
Such was the case in our visit
to a recent family reunion
where, to most in attendance,
it was merely an occasion to
meet and to mingle with rela-
tives known and previously
unknown, and to proffer the old
Bahamian hope: "that we be
strangers no more".
We, however, while sharing
that same general view, saw in
that gathering something more
profound. Indeed, we saw a
possible solution to the many
problems presently besetting


is a nation if not a vast combi-
nation of families?
It is a natural fact that the.
basic component of any society,
indeed any nation, is the family
unit. Accepting this, therefore,
we can all shape the kind of
society we desire ours to be by
instilling in our respective fam-
ilies such wholesome virtues as
honesty, industry, fair play,
integrity and, above all, a
respect for the difference
between right and wrong.
If sufficient families in our
Bahamaland encompassed in
their make-up these tried and
proven tenets, then the same
would be reflected in the every-
day life of our nation and things
would indeed be a lot better in
The Bahamas.
When we look with sadness
upon the gradual moral decay
of our once beautiful and inter-
nationally exemplary Bahama-
land, pondering how we came
to be the way we are today, we
cannot help but reflect on a
scene from the popular TV
series Dallas.
In that scene, JR is asked by a
business colleague how can he
live with himself, given the bad
things he did to other people.
Without pausing to think, J R
promptly replies: "When per-
sonal integrity (self respect) is
gone, the rest is a piece of
cake!" Just as this is so patently
true of individuals, the same is
also patently true of nations
...even our very own Bahama-
land. This thought we leave with
you, for what it's worth.
You might not believe it, but
what you have just read above
was written by us 20 years ago.
However, most of its varied
messages, with few exceptions,
are just as relevant today as
they were back then. Hence,
our repetition of the same, for
what it's worth.
Think on these things.

Thursdays

They're calling it M.A.D. Thursdays, and
another week kicks off Thursday night at
Club Nsomnia. And the event will be host-
ed by the "girls dem sugar" himself, Beenie
Man.
Beenie (which means 'little' in the Jamaican dialect)
was only five years old when he first grabbed a micro-
phone at a sound system dance by his uncle's Master
Baster set. Three years later, he recorded his single
debut, Too Fancy, for the late legendary reggae pro-
ducer Henry 'Junjo' Lawes.
By 1993, Beenie Man had some well-deserved respect
in the industry, ascending to the top ranks of Jamaica's
dancehall dominators. Beenie Man has established him-
self as the hands-down stage master "a ragamuffin
Fred Astaire with huge, velvet-lashed cow eyes, a long
lean body meant for waist whinin' and a willingness to
try anything," according to his website.
Those who come out to M.A.D. Thursdays are
expected to be well entertained by this energetic host.
There will also be a special performance by Club Nsom-
nia's International Coyote Girls. Ladies get in free
before llpm; Guys $15 before llpm. Late night happy
hour from 9pm-llpm: $1 drink specials. Music by Bar-

The Arts I

Split Personality, a joint art show by Nicole Col-
lie and Lemero Wright hopes to challenge the
eyes and the mind of artlovers. Collie's more
exotic, feminine pieces celebrate woman- .her
curvaceous shape blended in pastel shades. By
contrast, Wright's work uses bright almost glar-
ing primary colours. Though Wright's paintings
suggest a more masculine energy, he has used the
female form in black and hot tones with smoul-
dering looks and proud stances. In some of Col-
lie's pieces, she uses brighter tones to highlight
just the body (minus the head). The exciting
show, sponsored by the Credit Suisse Supports
Bahamian artists Programme, runs from Monday,
May 16 till Friday, May 27 at the Central Bank of

Pharmacists threatened


by Caribbean


proposal


By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
and
TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporters
RAISING the qualification
standards for pharmacists
throughout the Caribbean, as
proposed by the Caribbean
Association of Pharmacists, may
force many Bahamian pharma-
cists to close their businesses
and go abroad to study for fur-
ther degrees, FNM chairman
Carl Bethel said.
Addressing FNM supporters
during the party's rally on Tues-
day night, Mr Bethel said that
the Caribbean Association of
Pharmacists is scheduled to hold
a conference in Nassau, on May
19, to lay down new laws for
Bahamian pharmacists.
"This Caribbean group, along
with the backing of the CARI-
COM Secretariat and


Caribbean governments, is com-
ing here to finalise plans for a
Harmonisation Agreement to
set down new qualifications for
anyone working as a pharma-
cist in the Bahamas and the
Caribbean. The Bahamian gov-
ernment will be forced to pass
this into law," Mr Bethel
explained.
Looking at the qualification
level of Bahamian pharmacists,
he noted that 90 per cent of
them only have a Certificate of
Competency (COC).
Additionally, he pointed out
that as the proposed agreement
does not contain a "grandfather.
clause" to allow Bahamian
pharmacists with only a COC
to continue to practice, they will
have to give up their businesses
to study for a first degree.
"Now who do you think will

arrange a meeting with Mr Paul O'Neil, CEO of
Atlantis, in an effort to avoid public demonstra-
tions by ULOA.
ULOA has complained that Atlantis and
Bahamas Experience Limousine and Tours have
formed a partnership which has a monopoly on
limousine services on Paradise Island and that
independent limousine operators are discrimi-
nated against by being prevented from getting
fares at Atlantis and Ocean Club.
According to the ULOA, section 6.4 of the
Limousine Services Agreement, between Atlantis
and Bahamas Experience says that Atlantis is
entitled to receive a 20 per cent commission on all
receipts from gross revenue for services rendered
under the agreement.
S "Twenty per cent of the gross revenue of
Bahamas Experience equates to more than 50
per cent of Bahamas Experience's net profit. This
is in fact makes Atlantis not only a partner with
Bahamas Experience, but it gives Kerzner Inter-
national more than 50 per cent of Bahamas Expe-
rience's profits," the ULOA claims.
Ed Fields, Kerzner's vice president of public
affairs, has disputed these claims. He said that a


have to give up their businesses
to study for a first degree? We
will have to get pharmacists
from outside the Bahamas,"
said Mr Bethel.
The Ministry of Health con-
firmed that the Caribbean Phar-
maceutical Association will hold
its mid-term meeting in the
Bahamas on May 21.
As a highlight of this.meet-
ing Timothy Odle, who repre-
sents CARICOM on pharma-
cy matters, is expected to pre-
sent a draft Bill, which propos-
es harmonization of standards
for the conduct of pharmacy
services in the region.
The draft documents have
been circulated to stakeholders
in the Bahamas, including the
Health Professions Council,
which is the legislated authority
responsible for the registration
and regulation of health pro-
fessions, inclusive of pharma-


written policy between Kerzner International
and Bahamas Experience says that persons who
walk up to the Atlantis desk at the airport without
having made previous arrangements should be
directed to the independent limousine call up
line.
However, the ULOA asserts that the arrange-
ment between ULOA and Kerzner is in contra-
vention of government's policy that reserves the
transportation business in the Bahamas exclu-
sively for Bahamians.
ULOA has made the following demands
against Atlantis:
Discontinue the practice of allowing guests to
make direct charges to their rooms for limou-
sine services.
Limit contractual limousine services to casi-
no guests and Atlantis, executives only.
Stop the practice by Atlantis staff of directing
walk-out passengers at Nassau International to
Bahamas Experience.
Mark all Bahamas Experience limousines
carrying casino guests.
Pay reasonable financial compensation to
the affected ULOA members.

"It's something you do out of
fear for your own property and
safety," he said, "but also for
your community. We all will
suffer if the flames get out of
control, so it's important for us
to participate."
Mr Evans said that although
he welcomes assistance from
the general public, it is impor-
tant that persons are properly
educated and trained in fire pre-
vention and management.
"We also want to stress that
there are people trained and
qualified to put out fires," said
Mr Evans, "and we would nev-

Mr Evans said that the best
way the public can assist the

He said it is the mandate of

"We could always use more

to make adjustments according
to our budgetary constraints."
He added that although
Wednesday's bush fire, like all
fires, was a cause for concern,
other islands in the Bahamas
are plagued with even larger

"We take our jobs very seri-
ously on working for and on the
behalf of the people of the
Bahamas.
"But I wish to respectful sug-
gest that if the opponents, that
is the Duncombe and Riley
group, to set their own time
parameters, and conduct a
meeting to their own satisfac-
tion.
"They can test the wonder-
ful democracy, of the Bahamas
and invest their own money to
do as the BEST Commission
and my ministry is proposing to
do by conducting their own well
ordered town meeting," he said.
Mr Miller advised the LNG
opponents that if they claim to
represent groups within
Bahamian society, they should
be prepared to speak the truth,
and not "biased opinions based
of their own innate beliefs on
the subject matter."
"Again I challenge them. I
challenge ReEarth, and Tim
Riley and his group to refute
the facts that were placed in the
advertisements in all the papers.
"But don't come with old
information. They talk about
an explosion in 1944, but that
explosion did not happen at an
LNG terminal. They know what
the facts are.
"They talk about an explo-
sion in Nigeria. It was not a
regasification facility. In that
case a 22-year-old boiler
exploded. They know the facts."
he said.
The LNG town meeting
planned for last week has been
postponed out of respect for the
illness of Prime Minister Perry
Christie. A new date has not as
yet been scheduled by the
BEST Commission or the Min-
istry of Trade and Industry.

MIAMI HERALD SPORTS


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports
Reporter

"WHAT'S the
score?"
"What's the inning?"
Tired of sitting in the
stands at the Churchill
Tener Knowles Nation-
al Softball Stadium and
having to shout out
those questions, Bom-
mer George Armbrister
decided to do some-
thing about it.
The sponsor of both
the Degeo Bommers
and the Randella's
Swingers ladies team in
the fast-pitch league
sponsored a new score-
board that was unveiled
on Thursday night.
"Every night we have
to hear people asking
what's the score," said
Armbrister. "So this
season, I said I was
going to buy a score-
board."

Stadium
The scoreboard,
shipped from Philadel-
phia, was, hoisted in the
same lodationf ini ight
field where the previous
board was hung from
the time the stadium
was first opened.
The previous board
was damaged a couple
years ago and, year
after year, administra-
tors had indicated that
they were going to
replace it.
"At the end of the
season last year, I think
Bishop (Steve Beneby)
that I was going to get
one," Armbrister said.
"So we got it. That's all
I can say about it."
Armbrister declined
to say exactly how
much it cost him. He
said he was just delight-
ed to continue to make
his contribution to the
league.
League president
Steve 'Garbo' Coakley,
who bunny hopped out-
field after a brief cere-
mony on the infield
Thursday night, said
while they are apprecia-
tive of Armbrister's
efforts, they will be
thanking him in a more
tangible way later in
the year.
The scoreboard lit up
for the start of the
men's featured rematch
between the defending
champions TBS Truck-
ers and the Electro
Telecom Dorcy Park
Boyz.

Dispute
But after a dispute
over the Truckers' use
of bats that were on a
banned Amateur Soft-
ball Association of
America list that the
NPSA wanted to utilise,
the game was never
played.
The Truckers walked
off the field, saying that
they couldn't play
because all of the bats
they had were on the
banned list.
"It was very disap-
pointing," Armbrister
reflected. "I wanted to
see some numbers up
there. I don't know
what went wrong with
the two teams. But I
wanted to see the num-
bers on the home and
guest teams."


I


Match now to


be replayed as


rule overturned


M By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

THE defending champions
TBS Truckers refused to play
their featured rematch Thurs-
day night against the Electro
Telecom Dorcy Park Boyz after
the bats they wanted to use
w-re ruled illegal by the New
Providence Softball Associa-
tion.
But, on Friday, NPSA com-
missioner Burkett Dorsett
declared that they made an
error in the decision on the
banned bats and instead of the
Truckers losing the game, it will
now be replayed on Thursday
night.
Dorsett, after checking with
the International Softball Fed-
eration, said they realised that
there should not have been any
penalty for the bats because
they are only banned by the
Amateur Softball Association
of America.
"That. list that we have is
from the ASA and that is only
for their championship play,"
Dorsett said. "On that list, there
are only three bats that are


banned by the ISF and they are
the Miken bats.
"The Bahamas play under the
ISF rules and the banned list is
from the ASA, as such those
bats that are in questioned are
not banned."
There was a lot of commo-
tion as the game was scheduled
to get underway immediately
after a new scoreboard was
unveiled in the stadium.

Discussion
While the Dorcy Park Boyz
were warming up on the field
getting ready to play defence,
plate umpire Thomas Sears and
chief umpire Lawrence 'Buddy'
Smith, who was calling first
base. had a lengthy discussion
with the Truckers over the use
of their bats.
Eventually, after they were
told that they could not use any
of the bats they had because
they were on the banned list,
the Truckers' manager Perry
Seymour pulled his team out of
the dugout and they left.
The game was called and
awarded to the Dorcy Park


N THE Truckers team was pulled off after the controversy.

Boyz by forfeiture.
Seymour said afterwards that
they were aware of the banned
bats, but they didn't have suffi-
cient time to get replacements
before the game.
"All we were asking them to
do was start the rule next year,"
said Seymour, a first vice presi-
dent of the NPSA, headed by
president Steve 'Garbo' Coak-
ley. "If we could afford to get
the new bats, we would have,
but we couldn't afford the new
bats."
It was just on Monday at a
meeting that the new list was
presented to all of the teams


present. Both the Truckers and
the Dorcy Park Boyz were rep-
resented.
But while the Truckers main-
tain that the timing was not
appropriate, the Dorcy Park
Boyz say it's a rule made by the
association and they have to
abide by it.
By forfeiting the game,
Dorsett said Thursday night
that rule 34 of the NPSA's con-
stitution state that: "Any team
that deliberately forfeits any
NPSA scheduled game will be
fined 50 per cent of the team
fees then in effect."
The fees would have amount-


ed to a total of $425, inclusive of
$375 (half of their team regis-
tration), and $50 (half of their
players' fees).
However, because the
banned bats rules are no longer
in effect, Dorsett said the
Truckers will not be fined and
will be allowed to replay the
game on Thursday.
Seymour was unavailable for
comments.
When contacted, Mario Ford,
the Dorcy Park Boyz' play-
er/manager, refused to com-
ment on the overturned rule
and the decision to replay the
game.

The


Wildcats cruise to


victory over the


Eagles


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
DEFENDING champions
Electro Telecom Wildcats did-
n't play as well as they're capa-
ble, but they still escaped with a


5-0 victory over the hapless
Whirlpool Eagles on Thursday
night at the Churchill Tener
Knowles National Softball Sta-
dium.
While the Wildcats surged to
an impressive 5-0 win-loss


record, the Eagles remained at
the bottom of the New Provi-
dence Softball Association
ladies' divisional standings at 0-
5.
"I don't think the team
played up to our potential. We


played at the same level as
Whirlpool," said Electro Tele-
com's ace pitcher Mary 'Cruise'
Edgecombe after the victory.
"We came to the park late
and we didn't hit the ball. They
didn't score any runs, but I was-

n't too pleased with the way we
played offensively."
The Wildcats took advantage
of starting pitcher Thelia John-
son, scoring four runs on two
hits in the first inning before
Whirlpool decided to switch her
with shortstop Margie Daugh-
erty, who was able to cool down
the Electro Telecom bats.
Daugherty, an American
employed at Adventure Learn-
ing Centre, was able to scatter a
three-hitter, giving up just one
run over the remaining five
innings as she engaged in a
pitching duel with Edgecombe.
Edgecombe produced the
Wildcats' only run in the bot-
tom of the fifth.

Throwing
"I told our girls that she
(Daugherty) was throwing a lot
of slow balls, so they had to go
up in the batter's box," Edge-
combe noted. "She kind of kept
our bats quiet, but I think if the
game was close, we would have
still beat them with our experi-
ence."
Daugherty, who has turned
heads with her performances
despite the fact that her team-
mates have not been able to hit
the ball offensively, said she was
pleased with their defensive
efforts.
"My team supported me. I
think we're solid defensively,"
said Daugherty, who struck out
five in her efforts on the mound.
"I heard they are the defend-
ing champions for the past 4-5
years, so I was a little afraid at
the beginning.
"But as I started to pitch, I
realised that we could hold
them."
While Daugherty was able to
control the Wildcats, Electro
Telecom had already broke the
game open when second sacker
Hyancinth Farrington came up
with a run-producing single,
catcher Dornette Edwards had
a RBI ground out and short-
stop Rita Mackey delivered a


two-run single in the first inning.
In securing the win, Edge-
combe fired a one-hitter, strik-
ing out five. The only hit she
gave up came from second sack-
er Alicia Culmer in the first.
The Wildcats are now gearing
up for a big match-up next Sat-
urday night when they will
square off with the second place
Degeo Bommers in their sec-
ond showdown for the year.
The second-year Bommers,
who lost their only game to the
Wildcats, are currently 4-1.
Their sponsor Bommer George
Armbrister presented the
league with a new scoreboard
that was unveiled on Thursday
night.
"We're ready to go. We're
going to get in a few practices
for them," said Edgecombe, as
she looked ahead to the much
anticipated rematch.
"The Bommers say they can't
wait for us, hut we can't wait
for them. I think the way I
pitched tonight, they won't see
that. I will step it up a notch or
two. I am geared up and my
team is geared up. We will be
early and ready to play a good
game and they will get beat
again."

Strengthened
Since losing their first
encounter, the Bommers have
strengthened their line-up with
the addition of Eleuthera's
shortstop Christine Edmunds
and catcher Avis Petty.
Members of the Bommers
were on hand Thursday night
to unveil the new scoreboard
for the men's feature that was to
follow the ladies' opener.
However, the men's game
between the defending cham-
pions TBS Truckers and the
Electro Telecom Dorcy Park
Boyz was not played because
of a dispute over the bats being
used by the Truckers.
It as also a rematch of a big
showdown between two of the
league's top teams.
