Tragedy on



diving trip


By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
A diving trip in Andros has
ended in tragedy, with the
drowning death of a middle-
aged American visitor.
The dead man was one of a
group investigating a blue hole
near Love Hill. He was discov-
ered submerged after going
missing on Thursday morning.
Police say the tragedy hap-
pened after the group set out
around 9am. The divers, who
.explored a blue hole north of
Love Hill, raised the alarm on
their return.
Inspector Walter Evans,
,police press liaison officer, told
The Tribune that David Sorg,
54, of Sebring, Florida, was
'found submerged in the sea. He
was taken to the local clinic
where he was pronounced dead.
"Foul play is not suspected
and an autopsy has to be per-
'formed to determine the cause
of death," said Mr Evans..
David Sheasby, control offi-'
cer of Bahamas Air Sea Res-
cue Association (BASRA),
Offered safety tips for divers.
He said dive groups should
* always have experienced divers
with them. He recommended
that groups use a "buddy" sys-
tem, where divers can watch


over each other.
"When diving in an unfamil-
iar area it is always a good idea
to have an experienced diver,
from that area, diving with you,
so that they can lead the ','ay,"
he said.
"It is particularly important
in the more dangerous and
unfamiliar situations like a blue
hole. There is no question that
everyone should be looking out
for their buddy."
In other police news, three
armed robberies took place on
Thursday afternoon.
Police said that just before
4pm a masked gunman entered
Stuart Cove's dive centre.
The Clifton Pier premises
were robbed of an undeter-
mined amount of cash, and the
gunman then fled the area.
Mr Evans said the suspect is
described as 5ft 8ins, of slim
build, with dark complexion.
Two Quick Cell booths, locat-
ed on East Street and Soldier
Road and Marathon Road,
were robbed after 8pm on
Thursday.
"Cash was the motive behind
both of them. In both instances
cell phone cards were taken,"
said Mr Evans.
Police could not say if the two
robberies were connected.
Investigations are continuing.

HARBOUR ISLAND -
Security officers have been
flown in from Nassau by a
resort hotel which claims con-
tractors are building a bathroom
facility on its land.
The contractors, according to
management at Pink Sands, are
defying a court injunction by
continuing work on the disput-
ed plot.
The three-man security squad
will patrol the area until the
matter has been brought before
the courts.
The officers from Wemco
Security are helping an attor-
ney from Graham Thompson
and Co serve writs on the dis-
banded district council, which
ordered construction of the
building.
According to Clemmens
Vonmerveldt, manager of Pink
Sands, a writ will also be served
on island administrator Alexan-


der Flowers and contractor
Joseph Oliver for refusing the
first order.
"The marker they are claim-
ing is the boundary marker is
just a position marker, and not
the end of the property. They
know they have made a mistake
and they are not going to accept
it," he said.
"Over the years, with the hur-
ricanes and seas, the Crown
Land has lost a few feet, but
they can't move back on to oth-
er people's property," he added.
According to Mr Von-
merveldt, the resort has never
objected to the idea of a public
facility, only the positioning of it
on their property.
In fact, he said, if the resort
had been contacted, it would
probably have helped to finance
the building.
"At no point have we ever
had any objection to a facility
on the beach. In fact, had we

Envoy

hopeful

on US

passport

delay
By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
AS the debate over the Unit-
ed States' proposed new pass-
port policy heats up in Wash-
ington, US Ambassador to the
Bahamas John D Rood said he
remains optimistic that the
implementation deadline for the
Caribbean region will be
delayed.
The current proposal of the
Western Hemisphere Travel
Initiative requires all American
citizens travelling to the
Caribbean and returning to the
US to enter with a valid travel
document as of January 1, 2006.
Travellers to Canada and
Mexico have until 2008 to com-
ply with the policy.
The new initiative is intended
to improve security standards
of international travel.
While there is a consensus
that such a policy is needed, the
timeline of implementation has
raised the concerns of
Caribbean countries, including
the Bahamas, that the new pass-
port requirements will be detri-
mental to their respective
tourist industries.
Ambassador Rood, however,
told The Tribune that the pro-
posal is only in its initial stages
and not set in stone.
"The current proposal is Jan-
uary 1, 2006, but actually the
proposed rule has not even
been written yet. There's a lot
of debate on this issue in Wash-
ington. The (Bahamas') prime
minister, foreign affairs minister
and the tourism minister, as well
as many people in the tourism
industry have made their com-
ments known to the State
Department, the White House,
and to the Florida senators and
there is a lot of understanding
from the US government," he
said.
However, the ambassador
cautioned that people should
not wait and see if the deadline
will be delayed, but apply for
their passports ahead of time.
"We are caught in a dilem-
ma. We do not want to wait
until the end, and find the
Bahamas in the situation where
people who want to travel here
cannot even get a passport, that
wouldn't be a good situation.
"But, on the other hand, we
agree with the hotels and others
that they need at least one
year's notice, so they can tell

CARICOM criticises US


LAST week's CARICOM
foreign ministers meeting in
the Bahamas characterised
Cuban-born dissident Luis
Posada Carriles as, "an indi-,
vidual long associated with
acts of violence against the
Government of Cuba."
The 15-nation body told the
United States that "suspect-
ed terrorists should find no
safe haven."
Cuba has demanded the
immediate extradition of
Posada Carriles to Venezuela.
, According to the AIN News
Agency, protest organisers in
Madrid, Spain denounced the
Bush administration'sjrottec-
tion of the man suspected to
be behind the 1976 in-flight*
sabotage of a Cuban airliner
in which 73 people were killed


of the coast of Barbados.
The organisers of the
Madrid demonstration also
demanded the liberation of
the five Cuban men held as
political prisoners by the US
for infiltrating alleged terror-
ist groups based in southern
Florida to obtain information
on terrorist plots against the
island.
The "Cuban five" were
arrested in Miami in 1998 and
sentenced in 2001 to extreme-
ly harsh jail terms in a highly
politicised trial.
At present, the case is
awaiting the verdict of the
11th Circuit Court of Appeals
in Atlanta after the defence
denounced irregularities com-
mitted along the process and
demanded a new trial.


IN LIGHT of recent calls for
the resignation of College of the
Bahamas president Dr Rodney
Smith, COB faculty, staff and
students will hold a "Rally in
Support for president Smith"
on Monday.
The rally will be held at 10am
on the front lawn of the college
campus.
Supporters of Dr Smith say
a letter supporting him has been
circulated throughout the cam-


pus and has been endorsed by
more than 100 faculty and staff
members.
Following his admission of
plagiarism, former minister of
education Dion Foulkes and the
FNM Action Group called for
Dr Smith to be replaced.
The Action Group said Dr
Smith "certainly cannot be
allowed to continue as a model
of honesty and academic excel-
lence for Bahamian students".


The group reiterated their ini-
tial objections to his appoint-
ment and declared that "the
chickens have come home to
roost". Before Dr Smith's
appointment on August 16 last
year, the Action Group claimed
he could compromise the insti-
tution.
Now that Dr Smith has come
under fire after his public apol-
ogy for plagiarism, the group is
adamant that he be held


accountable for his "disgrace-
ful blunder".
"This time however, the
Action Group is simply not urg-
ing the College Council to
check out Dr Smith carefully,
but to check Dr Smith out of.
the college altogether," said a
release from the group.
The release said if the group's
advice had been followed, COB
would have been saved from a
"disgraceful embarrassment".


Disabled Cheshire Home



residents find new abode


By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter

AFTER experiencing "diffi-
culty" in locating new accom-
modations, former residents of
Cheshire Home are scheduled
to relocate to their new home
on Monday;
After spending a week at the
Nassau Beach Hotel, an apart-


ment has been found for the
four disabled men, Acting
Director of the Department of
Social Services Dr Sandra
Dean-Patterson confirmed yes-
terday.
Cheshire Home's manage-
ment committee decided to
close the facility for financial
reasons, and the residents were
given a final deadline of May


31 to vacate the building.
However the men fought
bravely to stop the home from
closing.
Electrical, phone and water
services were disconnected at
the home on June 1 and the res-
idents finally had to be moved
to the Nassau Beach.
Dr Patterson explained that
to pay for the new apartment,
the men will pool their
resources and the Ministry of
Social Services will subsidise
them until they are able to find
jobs.
She said that finding accom-
modations for the disabled men
was not an easy task.
"We had a great difficulty
identifying a place for them to
move into. You would not


believe the amount of rejection
that we were confronted with,
in looking for a home for these
individuals," said Dr Patterson.
She said that there was a lot.,
of resistance from landlords,
who did not want to rent to per-
sons with disabilities.
"It is really horrendous, to'
think that in this day and age
we would still be combating this
type of discrimination," Dr Pat-
terson said.

THETRBUN STURAYAJUE 1,205SPAEI


By DANIELLE STUBBS
Tribune Staff Reporter
NEW Providence generates
enough municipal waste to
sustain its own waste-to-ener-
gy conversion facility accord-
ing to Smart Power, the prin-
cipal behind an innovative
waste to energy plant propos-
al for the Bahamas.
According to a company
spokesperson, solid waste
does not have to be imported
from the family islands to
New Providence to sustain a
local plant.
Health Parliamentary Sec-
retary Ron Pinder has said
that one of his reservations
about such a project is that
solid waste would have to be
imported from Family Islands
to make a viable proposal.
However, Smart Power
contends that while the issue
of imported waste may apply
to other proposals presented
to government, this is not the
case for the waste-to-energy
plant plan submitted for New
Providence.
As a result of its high level
of waste per capita, arising in
part from the large number
of annual visitors and volu-
minous waste packaging from
imported materials, New
Providence is a great candi-


date for such a plant, said the
company.
The plant is expected to
add 25-mega watts of power
to the island's electrical grid,
assisting in the reduction of
blackouts and virtually elimi-
nating the need for a land fill,
according to Smart Power.
However, because the dis-
posal of waste on the Family
Islands is also a critical issue,
Smart Power says the plant
would have the technology to
address this as well.
If the proposal is accepted
by the government, Smart
Power says it can institute a
programme by which solid
waste will be mechanically
sorted on the islands, and the
inorganic compacted portion
(not the whole solid waste)
will be transported to the
New Providence plant to be
converted into electricity.
The company said the plant
would be privately financed
and supported from revenue
generated by disposal fees
and energy charges.
These fees and charges,
according to Smart Power,
"will be competitive and
result in substantial budgetary
savings to the country, in
addition to the plant's dra-
matic environmental bene-
fits."


Man fined over


drug possession


By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
A 27-YEAR-OLD man and
two women appeared in court
on Friday to be charged with
possession of $24,000 worth of
marijuana.
Carlos Brown of Yellow
Elder, 25-year-old Flora Gib-
son of Cox Way and 47-year-
old Daisy Martin of Cowpen
Road were arraigned before
Magistrate Carolita Bethel.
Prosecutor Leamond Dele-
veaux told the court that police
detectives confiscated 20
pounds of marijuana from a
Cowpen Road home on
Wednesday, June 8.
Brown and Gibson were also
arraigned on charges of posses-
sion with the intent to supply
for a drug bust on Tuesday,
June 7.
Police allege that the pair
were found with 24-year-old
Anton Forbes of Yellow Elder
in possession of a quantity of
marijuana.
Brown pleaded guilty to pos-
sessing the drugs on June 7,
which led Magistrate Carolita
Bethel to discharge the other
two accused.
He was fined $2,500. If he
fails to pay the fine, he will have
to spend one year in jail.


However Brown was
remanded without bail on the
charges relating to the 20
pounds of marijuana. He and
the two women arrested with
him will return to court on
Tuesday, July 14.
Also in the drugs court Fri-
day:
Kevin Alexander Woodside
Mackey, a 39-year-old with no
fixed address, was arraigned on
charges of possession of-mari-
juana with the intent to supply.
Police said he was found with
37 foil wraps containing the
drugs on Thursday, June 9.
He pleaded not guilty and
was granted $10,000 bail with
two sureties.
His preliminary inquiry will
begin on December 13.
In other court news:
A juvenile broke down in
court after being told he would
be remanded to Fox Hill Prison
without bail after being charged
with armed robbery.
The 16 year old was arraigned
with his 18-year-old brother.
They were charged with
armed robbery and conspiracy
to commit armed robbery on
Saturday, June 4.
Court documents said the
teenagers are accused of using a
handgun and a knife to rob
Jamaal Rolle.

GOVERNMENT will imple-
ment a comprehensive com-
plaints management system at
the Princess Margaret Hospi-
tal.
The new system aims to
address patient complaints and
assess customer satisfaction,
according to Health Parliamen-
tary Secretary Ron Pinder.
"We are aware that feedback
in the form of complaints or
commendation is beneficial for
our organisation to improve on
the delivery of their services,"
said Mr Pinder in his budget
communication in the House of
Assembly on Thursday.
During the 2005/2006 fiscal
period, Mr Pinder said, the Pub-
lic Hospital Authority will
enforce this new system in an
effort to "strengthen service
delivery in patient care areas."
These areas, he said include
accident and emergency, oncol-
ogy care, and neurodevelop-
ment services.
At the Accident and Emer-
gency section of PMH, Mr Pin-
der said, there is a plan in
progress to improve manpow-
er capacity, the deployment of
staff and the training and
upgrading of existing staff.
In addition to this, he said,
enhancements are to be made
to physical infrastructure, a


world peace, and just that," said
Mrs Darling.
The "Moonie" faith is led by
Korean religious leader Rev
Sun Myung Moon, of the Fam-
ily Federation for World Peace
and Unification (FFWPU).
The conference on "the Ide-
ology of Peace" for leaders of
the Bahamas was scrutinised
locally because of the organisa-
tion's association with Rev
Moon, a man known world-
wide as the head of a cult often
referred to as the "Moonies" or
the Unification Church.
Although Mrs Darling
endorsed the conference held


review of clinical protocols will
take place and a new patient
priority system will be created.
In regards to cancer care ser-
vices, Mr Pinder said: "A full-
time manager has been appoint-
ed to co-ordinate treatment and
to further develop the delivery
of care in this area."
The programme for strength-
ening oncology services also
entails initiatives related to
enhancing the cancer registry
and pathology services, and cre-
ating a tumour and medical
oncology board.
Mr Pinder said: "It is antici-
pated that support for the
advancement of strategies in
these areas will be enhanced
through a partnership agree-
ment being negotiated-with the
oncology department of
Howard University in Wash-
ington, DC.
"These partnerships will pro-
vide for staff attachments and
other areas of technical co-oper-
ation with a view to improving
processes and patient care out-
comes," he said.
Additionally, Mr Pinder said,
renovations to the former
Bah'Ai building, located next
to PMH, will be completed this
year to accommodate cancer
care services.
Due to the increasing
demand for a neurodevelop-
ment programme for children
with special needs, Mr Pinder

attend.
Rev Moon professes to be
"the absolute victor of Heaven
and Earth," and "the true Mes-
siah" appointed by Jesus Christ.
Mrs Darling became
acquainted with the "Moonie"
faith at an international confer-
ence in Korea, where, she said,
"the only issues discussed was
world peace, women's issues
and family values."
Following her trip to Korea,
Mrs Darling said she felt com-

"harmless."
"I never knew it was going to

CSME could





destroy the





Bahamas


EDITOR, The Tribune
I HAVE been reading and lis-
tening to more knowledgeable
people than myself about the
pros and cons of the Bahamas
becoming involved with CSME.
The more I listened the more
confused I became. I have
weighed the reasoning and came
up with my own opinion.
Bahamians are livid about the
possibility of people from other
countries having unfettered
access to the Bahamas, espe-
cially jobs. We, as a people, also
fear that people who are more
qualified than we are would
have more of an advantage in
the job market than we have.
Not to mention that the
Bahamas would only serve as a
conduit for people who want-
ed to eventually enter the Unit-
ed States. Has anyone ever
heard of human cargo? Does
any Bahamian want to be asso-
ciated with another accusation
of corruption?
I am forced to look at this
whole confusion like this. Of all,
the countries in the Caribbean,
only the Bahamas has a very
good relationship with the US.
Jamaica, even though it boasts a


good academic system, natural
resources and other self sus-
taining advantages, is not a
friend of the USA. In fact
America shuns Jamaica, espe-
cially because of its "buddy-bud-
dy" relationship with Cuba.
All the other Caribbean coun-
tries are not closely associated
with the USA, so, therefore, it
makes no difference to them if
the Bahamas severs the neces-
sary mutual relationship with the
USA. Is there a plan to have a
United States of the Caribbean?
While I am wondering, let me
also question the recent public
coziness the Bahamas has
shown with Fidel Castro. Was
this done specifically to annoy
the USA? Is this CSME also
designed to annoy the USA?
See, everyone is confused.
There was no education about
CSME, so everyone is left to
speculate.
Is this PLP government plan-
ning to destroy our usual way of
life by forcing us to become a


part of something we do not
know about? And the sheer
arrogance of Fred Mitchell who
has not helped us to understand.
This to me, on the face of it,
seems to have nothing to do
with the Bahamas, but with the
Minister of Foreign Affairs.
We simply should have a say
in something that is going to
change our lives now and for.
generations yet unborn. To dis-
miss us as a bunch of stupid
people blowing hot air is asi-
nine to say the least
I would like to share some-
thing with the Minister of For-
eign Affairs: it is okay if you
present yourself as a person
who knows everything, and that
you are the smartest human
being since Adam. But believ-
ing that all Bahamians are stu-
pid will be your political demise.
Remember a simple, ordinary
Bahamian told you that.
Oh, by the way, Mr Prime
Minister, you could voice your
opinion from home. Just say if
you, agree to destroy the
Bahamas as we know it or not,
that's all.
IVOINE INGRAHAM
Nassau
June 2005


CSME will lead




to a Caribbean




super-state


EDITOR,
The Tribune.

AN intensive effort has been
made to educate the citizens of
the Bahamas on the benefits of
CSME. In all the dialogue, how-
ever, the central and overrid-
ing issue is being overlooked.
Characterizing the CSME as an
economic arrangement is only
part of a more aggressive agen-
da. The vision is for a political
union, a Federation of
Caribbean States, with the polit-
ical machinery in place to over-
see activities in the individual
countries.
Dithering over the details of
the Chaguaramas Treaty is
causing many to miss the central
issue, that the government of


the Bahamas will, to a greater
or lesser degree be "managed"
by non-Bahamians from a loca-
tion somewhere in the
Caribbean.
A remote parliament com-
prised of appointees to manage,
oversee or somehow interject
itself into the economic and
political affairs of the Bahamas,
as we know it today, is simply
inconceivable.
Once understood, Bahami-
ans will reject political domina-
tion of a Supra-State which
Margaret Thatcher describes as
an empireunto itself with "com-
mitted elites employing skills
and stratagems to sustain or
expand them. The fact that they
are ultimately based on force
not consent (though culture
may supply some bonds of
time) makes them supremely
the fruit of artifice". (Statecraft.
Strategies for a Changing World
- Harper Collins 2002).
The question uppermost is
how will our cherished democ-
racy work when the government
we currently elect to protect our
life and property becomes
responsible, to an unelected
body of representatives from
different states with historical
differences and traditions.
Racial homogeneity cannot be
excluded as a motivating
force. If so it negates democra-
tic principles and is no better
than the notion that a Proxy
vote is a democratic one.
If the visionaries for a
Caribbean Federation have the
European Union as any kind of
model, then Lady Thatcher's
insight into the prevailing EU
style of politics is worthy of
examination. She describes it as
"an unusual mix of the author-
itarian, the bureaucratic and the
interventionist on the one hand,
with the compromising, the
uninspiring and the ineffective
on the other".
Lady Thatcher's insight into
the dysfunctional behaviour of
the Eurocrats is confirmed in
March 2005 edition of The
Economist under the headline
"Outlook Gloomy" for the EU.
"Last week's European Union
summit in Brussels might have
been worse. But it is quite hard
to see how. The purported
'relaunch' of the Lisbon Agen-
da of economic reform left it
saddled, as before, with too
many empty promises and too
little genuine action. The assem-
bled leaders told the European
Commission to rewrite (i.e. sub-
stantially withdraw) its planned


directive to liberalise trade in
services, the most important
remaining single-market pro-
posal. They tore up the euro's
stability and growth pact,
adding so many exemptions"
....and so on.
Is it possible that Mr.@
Mitchell imagines a Caribbean
Utopian state without the typi-
cal human frailties that underlie
the European problem? They
are all too evident in our own
government, but they are "our"
government, and we can vote
them out.
The Bahamas enjoys the
wonderful opportunities for
trade anywhere in the world at
our own discretion without
meddling by superficial "part-
nership" commitments. Bilat-
eral Agreements as required
could be negotiated by "our"
own representatives who are
answerable directly to "us".
The decision to stay out of
CSME is fully in accord with
the Principle of Subsidiarity
which is "nothing should be
done by a larger and more com-
plexorganization that can be
done as well by a smaller and
simpler organization".
In other words, any activity
that can be performed by a
more decentralized entity
should be.
The Subsidiarity Principle is
the bulwark of limited govern-
ment and personal freedom. It
conflicts with the passion for
centralization and bureaucracy
that describes idealized Super-
States.
The decision on Indepen-
dence and Nationhood was
made in the polling booths in
1967. The polling booth is still
the proper place for a decision
that is set to weaken "Nation-
hood". Set the date, and let the
buyer beware (caveat emptor).

By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
LUCAYA MP Neko Grant
hit out at Housing Minister
Shane Gibson during the bud-
get debate, accusing govern-
ment's housing project on
Grand Bahama of displaying
preferential treatment.
Speaking in the House of
Assembly on Thursday, Mr
Grant asked Mr Gibson to
explain why government had
refused to turn over the keys of
a house built in High Rock to a
Grand Bahama family.
He alleged that the home was
originally built for a known PLP
supporter, who had died before
it could be completed. He said
that the keys were withheld
after it was discovered that his
surviving family members were
FNM.
"He might wish to explain
what he told a former member
of this place what he would do
to that house when he.was
called by the member out of
concern," Mr Grant said.
Mr Gibson said that he did
not recall any such conversa-
tion.
In addition, Mr Gibson said
that it was made very clear to
the family by the officer respon-
sible for co-ordinating the relief
and restoration efforts in Grand
Bahama, that government
would not get involved in a fam-
ily feud. ;

Speaking at the new facility's
inaugural reception, US
Ambassador John Rood said
that the Bahamas boasts one.
the fastest visa,procpssing ties
in the western hemisphere, with
a very high visa approval rate.
"The majority of visas ,are
processed in one day, we also
have a very high rate of
approval; approximately 90 per
cent of the applicants receive
visas.
"We are proud of these num-
bers and the service we provide
and are working on making it
an even better process," he said.
To further alleviate the prob-
lem of long lines of applicants
outside of the embassy, Ambas-
sador Rood explained that the
entire visa section which will be
doubled in size by December.
He added that the embassy
is also reviewing a new system
which would allow people who
call ahead of time to make a
reservation for their visa appli-
cations.
The Ambassador explained
that the peak in applications for
this year is in large part due to
the successful economy of both
the Bahamas and the US.
"There's a good economy in
the US and the Bahamas, peo-
ple want to shop, travel, be
tourists.


"And there was also a spike
of applicants 10 years ago -
there's a 10 year-visa cycle," he
added.
A further contributing factor
is the expedient processing time,
he said.
"One of the prices that we
pay for the success of this area,
is increased demands from
cruise ships. People have a
choice to apply for their visas
in multiple locations, but they
choose the Bahamas because of
how efficient we are in process-
ing their requests," the Ambas-
sador said.
Abdelnour Zaiback, chief of
consular services at the
embassy, said that many third-
country nationals who are
employed in the US and can no
longer apply for their visas in
there, or have to leave the US in
order to get their visas, find it
convenient to come to the
Bahamas "to have a good time
and renew their visas at the
same time."
The newest expansion of the
visa section represents phase
two in the facility's overall ren-
ovations.
In addition to physical
upgrades, the embassy will also
be obtaining additional staff
during the summer.
"We have 15 on staff, but
only three are able to approve
visas; so-called adjudicators, so
in the summer we will have five
adjudicators," said Mr Zaiback.

'Not one single person got up in
the meeting and said they were

the member for Lucaya to keep
saying people are being
victimised when he knows this
is not the case,'
-Shane Gibson, minister of housing and national
insurance


members claiming to own the
property.
"All we said to them is pro-
vide us proof of ownership and
you can pick up the keys. We
have not seen one person yet
come forward to show proof of
ownership," he said.
Mr Grant also asked Mr Gib-
son to explain why a family is
being made to pay for a house
built in Williamstown for a res-
ident who passed away even
though it was built on the fam-
ily's property.
Mr Gibson said that his min-
istry held two meetings in
Grand Bahama to which oppo-
sition members were invited to
attend.
"Not one single person got
,,up in-the,meeting and said they.
were being victimised. It is ter-


rible for the member for Lucaya
to keep saying that people are
being victimised whh he knows
that this is not the -' he said.
The Lucaya M asked
why government, ed the
foreign contract of Gold
Rock Creek to build govern-,
ment homes; a sector of the
industry reserved for Bahami-
ans.
The contract, he said, was
worth about $1.3 million.
However, Mr Gibson said
that this fact was nothing new
and that he had made this
announcement several times in
the House of Assembly.s
"I also said that it was the
FNM who granted the licence
to Gold Rock Creek to con-
struct :affordable` homes in
Grand Bahama," he said.

By KRISTINA McNEIL
INCREASING awareness
and protection are the main
challenges for the Ministry of
Social Services in its fight to
eliminate child abuse and
domestic violence.
"Our challenge is to continue
to raise the level of awareness
of the scourge of the child abuse
year round," said Melanie Grif-
fin, Minister of Social Services
and Community Development.
The minister was speaking
during her contribution to the
budget debate in the House of
Assembly on Thursday.
The media campaign during
Child Protection month in April
to raise awareness was a suc-
cess, according to Mrs Griffin.
The theme of the campaign
was: "Safe children and healthy
families are a shared responsi-
bility."
Although women are consid-
ered the primary caregivers,
fathers must also recognise their
role in the protection of chil-
dren, continued Mrs Griffin.
"I wish to appeal to the men
of this country to be more vocal
in the matter of child protec-
tion, particularly with respect
to the sexual abuse of children,"
said Mrs Griffin.
"We need more men to speak
to men about their role as pro-
tector and provider and to assist
where necessary, those men
who need encouragement and
support in fulfilling these roles."
This message was conveyed
by a five-man panel in a forum
on Grand Bahama in April..
The response was so great
that plans for a repeat panel are
being made for New Provi-
dence. The Children's and
Young Persons Administration
of Justice Act is currently being
reviewed by the Attorney Gen-
eral's office and will be replaced
by the Child Care Protection
Act if the legislation is
approved.
Mrs Griffin said she has been


assured that the new document
will be all encompassing and
achieve all that it should.
Legislation must also be
amended to give more protec-
tion to women who are victims
of domestic violence, Mrs GOrif-
fin said.

She said the Sexual Offences

Legislation must be put in

ensure protection and security

A preliminary draft of the

Orders) Act has been passed
on to the Ministry of Social Ser-
vices by the Attorney General

stroke woes


By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE recent stroke suffered
by Prime Minister- Perry
Christie has brought the afflic-
tion into the spotlight of pub-
lic attention.
Expert medical care is cer-
tainly a major factor in guar-
atteigistroke victim's full
recqvery.
sl i'n be seenin iMr:
Clrisie'si case, however, ear-
ly diagnosis is also of vital
importance.
According to one woman,
who told The Tribune about
her stroke experience, there
is a very simple way for
almost anyone to tell if some-
one close to them is suffering
or has just suffered a stroke.
There are three questions
that can be put to a possible
stroke victim that could great-
ly increase their chances of
full recovery, or even save
their life she said.


The woman told of how her
loved one stumbled and then
collapsed one day.
She said a friend, being
concerned, helped her up and
asked her to perform the fol-
lowing functions:
She asked her to smile.
She asked her to raise
both arms.
She asked her to speak a
simple sentence, such as "It
is a sunny day".
A stroke occurs when oxy-
gen fails to reach some part
of the brain.
Medical experts say some-
times the symptoms can be
difficult to identify.
If a person has trouble with
any of these three tasks, an
ambulance must be called for
immediately. At the Ameri-
can Stroke Association's gen-
eral meeting last February, it
was stated that widespread
use of this test could result in
prompt diagnosis and treat-
ment of strokes, thereby pre-
venting brain damage.

Man charged





with raping





15 year-old


By KRISTINA McNEIL
A 39-year-old man. was
charged with rape in the Eight
Mile Rock Magistrate's Court
yesterday.
It is alleged that on February
13, 2005, while at a house in the
Bayshore Road area of Eight
Mile Rock,,Mario Mott forced a


15-year-old girl to take off her
clothes and engage in sexual
intercourse with him.
Mott was not required to
enter a plea and Magistrate
Debbye Ferguson adjourned
the matter to August 18, 2005
when a preliminary inquiry will
be held.
Mott, a resident of Jones


Town, Eight Mile Rock, was
arrested Monday night after
fleeing to Andros and was
returned to Grand Bahama in
police custody on Tuesday
evening.
Mott was remanded to Her
Majesty's Prison at Fox Hill
until the date of August 18,
2005.


MARJORIE Dean, 60, died in Grand Bahama
on Thursday from injuries suffered in a traffic
accident last week.
On Saturday, May 7, at about-10pm a traffic
accident occurred at the intersection of East Sun-
rise Highway and Arden Forest Road.
This accident involved a white 2001 Honda
CRV and a Dodge Caravan.
Five persons were injured. They included Kat-


sia Parker and her mother Marjorie Dean and
daughter two-year-old Nahja Farrington.
All the persons involved in the accident were
taken to the Rand Memorial hospital for medical
treatment and were eventually airlifted to New
Providence. On Thursday, June 9, information
was received by police indicating that Mrs Dean
had died of her injuries around 3.30am while at
the Princess Margaret Hospital.

WHY YOU VEX?
I vex 'cause my daughter been ta college
slavin' for des past four years, now she bring
home her bachelor's degree and can't find a job
to save her life. I don't understand for the life
of me what dis country about. Lemme tell
you somethin,' before my baby
leave fa school, erryone was
tellin' her say, sweetie, ya bet-
ter go off and get ya qualifi-
cations dem, because dis
CSRE, or what it name? /t
Right da CSME comin' -
and so I struggle wit her
daddy to pay dem -fees
fa college, now she fin-
ish and she come home /
lookin' fa work, she
can't find nuttin.' I
mean it look like dis
country wan hire peo-'
ple wit no degree at .a
heart beat, so dey could
slap dem wit da
miminum wage, but when
it come to people what
qualified and gat papers
don't look at.'em. y.h-l
. -B Marshall, Yellow ...
Elder. :" : '
I am vex about the way
our people have lost the hos-
pitality that this country has
always been known for. We've.
lost it, we lost it. I mean, you gointo any hotel
today and you can very well receive the type of
service that will send you running back home,
never to return again, There was a time when
it was truly better in the Bahamas, but I.am not
so sure those days exist anymore. Whatever
happened to the lovely smiles, the helpftulness,
the courtesy, the respect for our, tourists? If
things continue the way it is today, the
Bahamas will be forced to drop tourism as the
number one industry and look to banking
instead.
"A Retired Hotel Worker".
I am extremely vex. and saddened that we
had a "Moonie" conference in our country
and nothing substantial was said by the major-
ity of the pastors in the country. I see that Dr
Myles Munroe spoke out about it in a great
way, but whatever happened to. our Christian.


Council and other churches and religious
organisations? I believe that when these funny
cults come to the country, we ought to make
them realise and understand that their presence
is not needed or wanted here. We have to set a
stage, a precedent. I just don't understand
where all the pastors were when this confer-
ence was going on. That just goes to show you
that the antichrist can come and visit this little
rock, and our religious leaders
will sit back and say nothing!
Tangle Taylor.
The violence and hos-
tility on the streets of
Nassau is at an all-time
/) ^high. That's what I am
vex about. I was on
day, and before this
woman would let a car
out the corner, she
swing in front of the car
and nearly carry the
people bumper wit her,
now that is what I call
ridiculous. I think Road
Traffic needs to assign
some officers to monitor
reckless driving like that.
L Bain, St Alban's
Drive.

/ WHY YOU
HAPPY?
I am happy that the regis-
trar general Elisabeth Thomp-
son won her case before the Supreme Court
and got her job back. I believe we are always
too caught up in this country with trying to
take bread out of each other's mouth. We need
to put a stop to this black crab syndrome we
have in the Bahamas, and learn to appreciate
each other, instead of trying to destroy one
another.
"Becky," 47, Soldier Road.
I am very happy about the new and
improved Thomas A Robinson stadium. It has
been long overdue, and we need a facility that
we can house sporting events in and be proud
of it.
Ilive for the day when the Bahamas will be
among those countries qualified to host the
Olympic Games. It may be a long ways from
here, but I live for the day.
Lloyd Thompson, Eastern Road.

True democracy requires





the people's involvement


DEMOCRACY
cannot be cor-
rectly defined
merely as a
people follow-
ing the leader. Democracy is,
in essence, the immersion of
many differing viewpoints or
ideas into a pool of intelligent
debate. What emerges from this
discourse forms government
policy that is implemented by
the leaders of the people on
their behalf.
The original source of these
viewpoints or ideas, if the peo-
ple's best interests are to be
served, must indeed be the peo-
ple. Hence, the involvement of
the people is vitally necessary
if the democratic process is to
properly function.
There are many avenues by
which the people's views can be
brought to the attention of their
leaders in government. When
these avenues are fully pursued
by a vigilant and informed peo-
ple, it can be readily ascertained
whether the government's con-
duct is indeed consistent with
their feelings.
Here, we wish to commend
the Free National Movement
government for opening up the
airwaves to private radio sta-
tions, as they have provided the
Bahamian people additional
avenues through which they
may air their views, and they
certainly are doing just that.
Then, we have those columns
of the local newspapers that are
designated as public sounding
boards.
Here in the Bahamas, full
democracy has yet to be
attained, due not to any real
fault of the government, but
rather due to two major faults
of our people. Those faults are,
firstly, the reluctance of suffi-
cient people to read about what
is going on in their country and


in the world around them. Sec-
ondly, enough of our people do
not get involved in the affairs
of the two major political par-
ties from which the government
is chosen.
While most of our people use
the daily radio talk shows to
vent their frustrations and air
their views, much of what is said
is quickly forgotten as there is
no permanent record of the
same. Using the Letters to the
Editor columns of the daily
newspapers not only provides
a more permanent record of our
views, but also enhances more
the likelihood of those views
reaching the attention of those
best able to address them.
Better still, however, is by
actually becoming involved, via
membership, in the constituen-
cy branch of the party of your
choice. Here, you can speak
face to face with your Member
of Parliament. In so doing, your
views can be supported by oth-
er branch members who share
them, thereby virtually elimi-
nating any possibility of per-
sonal victimisation. Trust us,
victimisation is still alive and
kicking in Bahamian politics.
In a recent article entitled
"Colleagues You Can Trust",
we pointed out how the voice of
a member of parliament can be
silenced when he is totally
beholden to the leader for both
political and financial survival.
In such instances, your views
and those of the rest of his con-
stituents become secondary.
A strong and active con-
stituency branch can be a bless-
ing also for the member of par-
liament, in that it can provide
him with both the independence
and job security he requires in
being a good and effective rep-
resentative of the people. By
working closely with his branch,
he can become attuned with not


VIEW ]

G EO R G E

only their views on any given
issue, but also those of his con-
stituency at large. The members
thus become the eyes and ears
of the representative and, as
such, get the satisfaction that
their involvement is appreciat-
ed.
One major drawback to good
representation.in the Bahamas
stems from the gerrymandering
of constituency boundaries by
the governing party. While this
practice succeeds in neutralis-
ing opposition votes, it also
serves to disrupt long-estab-
lished communities.
As a result, community self-
help efforts are hindered by the
inability of voters in Blair assim-
ilating with their fellow con-
stituents in Kemp and St James
Roads, for example, in the St
Margaret Constituency.
Here, also, small blocks of
black votes are neutralised by
the larger concentration of
white votes in Blair. A similar
situation can also be found in
the Fox Hill constituency,
where the voters in the local
Fox Hill community cannot
relate to their fellow con-
stituents in portions of Blair and
the Eastern Road in the Mon-
tagu constituency.
A sad example of the unde-
sirability of this blatant form of
gerrymandering was seen
recently, when some residents
of the Eastern Road objected
to the presence of the Montagu
constituency office in their
neighbourhood, just east of St
Anne's Cemetery. One wonders
whether their objection was
based on the possible deprecia-


OINT
l:ilemffmm


MAC


K E Y


tion of their property value, or
on their reluctance in having
their poorer fellow constituents
from Fox Hill and Johnson
Road visiting their Member of
Parliament at his Eastern Road
constituency office.
As a result, that office was
closed and, for the remainder
of this term, we Montagu con-
stituents who desire to see our
representative must now do so
at his party's constituency head-
quarters in Johnson Road,
where the majority of the peo-
ple's votes there don't matter
anyhow. Boy, some One
Bahamas we have! Don't you
think?
In the past, many candidates
felt that just the promise of
roads, potable water and elec-
tricity was sufficient to impress
the electorate. Gone are those
days, my brothers and sisters.
We now live in an era where
the candidate's personal vision
and plans for the overall
improvement of the con-
stituency, and not his party's
platform, will be the ultimate
determining factors as to who
gets elected,
The daily emasculation of the
people's representatives by the
present self-serving political sys-
tem, that renders them both
silent and impotent, is seeing
its last days. This is long over-
due, as it has been well said that
he or she who stands for noth-
ing will fall for anything. As we
enter the new millennium, the
people certainly deserve better
from those they elect to serve
on their behalf. Hence, the peo-
ple's involvement is imperative


if their best interests and that
of democracy are to be most
satisfactorily served.
Political parties are born out
of the sufferings of the masses
of the people. The injustices
that cause those sufferings
spawn a revolution. A con-
cerned political party leads that
revolution on behalf of the
masses. Successfully leading the
revolution enables that party to
form the government of the
people. Its leader becomes the
nation's chief executive.
However, no one leader leads
two successive revolutions.
Why? Simply because, in solv-
ing the problems that brought
him to power, he creates new
problems. Those new problems
adversely affect the masses, thus
spawning another revolution,
for which, in time, a new leader
will surely emerge."
What you have just read
above was written by us and
published in this column, under
the heading "People's Involve-
ment Necessary", on March 25,
2000. Given the manner in
which two major national issues
are currently being dealt with,
we thought it most appropriate
to reprint the same in this col-
umn today.
We refer to the Liquefied
Natural Gas (LNG) matter and
the question of The Bahamas
signing on to the proposed
Caribbean Single Market and
Economy (CSME). We do so,
in the wake of the admonition
given by us to the local trade
union movement last week,
when we presented a lecture on
its development over the past
six decades at its Labour Insti-
tute at Workers House.
In the process, we advised
those in attendance that the
trade union movement should
expand its focus and involve-
ment beyond just simply agitat-


ing periodically for salary
increases and better working
conditions for its members.
Notwithstanding the impor-
tance of those two specific
union functions, we admonished
them to also make their collec-
tive voices be heard on nation-
al issues as they too can either
positively or negatively impact
the local economic and work-
ing environment of their mem-
bership.
Given the fact that their
membership also representedta
large constituency of voters,
they should initiate the spon-
sorship of town meetings to air
their views and hear those of
other Bahamians on the two
current burning national issues
mentioned above. They should
take the initiative in fostering
public discussion of these mat-
ters, we stressed, rather than
waiting for the relevant gov-
ernment ministries to do so,
thereby providing a more
broad-based public dialogue on
these important subjects.
Finally, we wish to conclude
by repeating for emphasis the
opening paragraph of this arti-
cle. Democracy cannot be cor-
rectly defined merely as a peo-
ple following the leader.
Democracy is, in essence, the'
immersion of many differing
viewpoints or ideas into a pool
of intelligent debate. What
emerges from this discourse
forms government policy that
is implemented by the leaders
of the people on their behalf.
Think on these,things.

"We are optimistic that we are going to get a
delay from this initial date, but without even hav-
ing seen the proposed rule it is a little early to
speculate," he said.
Ambassador Rood said he is supporting the
proposal to make all destinations, which include
air travel, equitable.
"We would like to see the same (implementa-
tion) date for all countries, be it to the US or
Mexico, plus that year-long time-frame," he said.
On Thursday, US Senators Norm Coleman,
Republican for Minnesota, and Chris Dodd,
Democrat for Connecticut, issued a warning at a
hearing titled 'Safety And Convenience In Cross-
Border Travel: An Analysis Of The Western
Hemisphere Travel Initiative'.
Senator Coleman, chairman of the Senate For-
eign Relations sub-committee for the Western


Hemisphere, said that although the US needs to
be vigilant of terrorists, "we cannot give them
the victory of making us twist ourselves into a
pretzel in the name of security."
Senator Dodd added: "After all, for years the
United States has been a beacon for foreign
tourists. This tourism has helped to drive our
economy, even in the worst of times. It's also left
an impression for tourists of what America's all
about."
This warning from the Senators comes on the
heels of a study prepared for the Caribbean Hotel
Association by the World Travel and Tourism
Council which predicted that the 2006 imple-
mentation could place some 188,000 jobs at risk
and cost the Caribbean $2.6 billion in earnings.
The study also found that the Bahamas could
lose $446 million in revenues and 13,134 tourism
jobs.

In a second charge, it is alleged that Mills also caused harm to the administrator. The dockets also

"We don't object to the idea, just the placing of it on Pink Sands land. Right now the council is try-

ner," he claimed.

Junkanoo




lovers, get




ready!

Set's not Boxing Day or New Year's, but
Junkanoo lovers can enjoy a bit of the season 0
during the Junkanoo in June festival, which
officially opens today at Arawak Cay.
The festival, hosted by the Ministry of Tourism,
began last weekend and will continue every Saturday
until July 2. This is the sixth Junkanoo in June fes-
tival. Though the festival was established to attract
tourists to the Bahamas during the traditionally slow
month of June, it is also a means for Bahamians to
celebrate a part of their own culture.
Come and enjoy concert performances by some of
Nassau's hottest acts, mini down-home plays and a
wide variety of Bahamian food. The festivities this
Saturday begin at noon with a DJ playing Bahami-
an music. Throughout the day there will be cooking
demonstrations, a bush tea tasting, a fashion show of
Bahamian clothing, and performances by soca
groups, gospel groups, as well as traditional rake
'n' scrapers. The festival will be held at Arawak
Cay. Admission is free.

Cocktail reception


Employees and
friends gathered
at the Central
Bank of the
Bahamas for a
special cocktail reception cele-
brating the institution's 25th
anniversary.
Guests of prominence includ-
ed the bank's former governor,
Julian Francis, who resigned
on May 31 to become co-chair-
man and CEO at the Grand
Bahama Port Authority, and
the newly-appointed governor
Wendy Craigg.
Ms Craigg is the first woman
ever to be appointed governor
of the Central Bank and has
become a further significant
part of the institution's rich his-
tory.
The Central Bank was estab-
lished in 1974 and represented
the beginning of a new phase in
the monetary history of the
Bahamas.
It was established in response
to the need for modern and
sophisticated organisation to
address the broader technical
aspects of domestic monetary
affairs, especially after the
Bahamas achieved political
independence.
Prior to the Central Bank,
the Bahamas was restricted to
the Currency Board, which was
set up in 1919 and only dealt
with currency issuing.
Since its establishment, the
bank's fundamental objective
regarding the country, mone-
tary policy has always bten to
maintain stable credit and oth-
er conditions to support the
fixed parity between Bahamian
and US dollars that has pre-
vailed since 1973.
The bank's stability objec-
tive further includes maintain-
ing the domestic as well as the
external value of the currency,
while the domestic objective
requires promoting and sup-
porting a high level of domestic
production, employment and
growth.

'Fountain


of youth'


brings


Younger duo power

past veterans into

national semi-finals


doubles


win


By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
T HE youthful team
of William Foun-
tain and Jonathan
Hanna was to6
much to handle as
they easily ousted the veteran
dub of Albeft M6cKinney and
John Pintard in straight sets.
Fountain and Hanna breezed
past McKinney and Pintard 6-1,
6-0 in the quarter-finals of the
men's doubles competition yes-
terday in the Bahamas Lawn
Tennis Association's Gatorade
Open National Championships.
With their victory at the
National Tennis Centre, Foun-
tain and Hanna secured a berth
in, the semi-final, where they
will face the number two seeded
team of Robert Smith and Jyles
Turnquest.
Smith and Turnquest got by
Bradley Bain and Justin Lunn
6-1, 6-1.
It could have easily been a
complete sweep for Fountain
and Hanna, but both teams held
serve in the first two games of
the first set. After that, it was
the Fountain and Hanna show.
"'The score doesn't reflect
how they played. They played
pretty good," said Hanna.
"We just came out a little bet-
ter. We volleyed and we served
much better than they did. We
were solid off the ground."
As a veteran combo, Hanna
said he expected McKinney and
*Pintard to extend the match
;onger than it did. It lasted less
; t an a hour.
,;-""JJ was solid at the net and
"I'm a lefty, so we mixed it up,"
he added.
Fountain said they couldn't
play any better than they did.
"It didn't look like they were
really playing that good. I
played them before and they
usually play a lot better than
that," Fountain noted. "I was
very surprised at the way they
.played."
On their team, Fountain said
they just complement each oth-
er.
"When you put a right hand
together with a left hand player,


you get two forehands and that
is our strength," Fountain
stressed.
As for their next opponent,
Hanna admits that it could be a
different story.
"Jyles is much more solid, but
Robert has his good and bad
days," Hanna reflected. "But I.
think we can take them out."
Fountain said if they play the
way they played yesterday, they
should overcome Smith and
Turnquest.
Meanwhile, defending cham-
pion Chris Eldon was scheduled
to play No.4 seed Larry Rolle in
the semi-final of the men's sin-
gles. But Rolle defaulted, send-
ing Eldon into the final with-
out breaking a sweat.
"It gives me less matches to
play. I'm a bit tired because I've
been practicing hard this week,"
Eldon stated. "So the less
matches I play the better for
me."
Eldon, the top seed, was
scheduled to play No.2 seed
Matthew Sands in the final late
last night.' The match was
moved up from today because
Sands is travelling.
One half of the ladies' singles
final draw has been decided, but
the other half is still not yet
completed.
Kerrie Cartwright eliminat-
ed No.2 seed Chanelle Clare 6-
3, 3-5 retired to secure her berth
in the final. Cartwright will play
the winner of the semi between
No.1 seed Nikkita Fountain and
Alana Rodgers.
The ladies' doubles final is
set with Elanova and Shanec-
ka Griffin playing No.2 seeds
Chanelle Clare and Syke Pow-
ell. The Griffins ousted No.1
seeds Dyphany Mortier and
Alana Rodgers 6-2, 6-0, while
Clare and Powell swept past
Taselle Burrows and Diana
Forbes.
And in the mixed doubles
draw, Kerrie Cartwright and
Jason Rolle are in one semi-
final after they beat Tanea
Miller and Ceron Rolle 7-6 (5),
1-6, 7-6 (5).
In the other half of draw, the
team of Alana Rodgers and Jeff
Spiers are also in.

Sounding the


bell


for


Bahamas


rugby


The Bahamas upset the established northern Caribbean rugby
order this week, as its younger side overcame higher-ranked rivals,
the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, to give the sport and this nation
a colossal boost.
The speed and fitness of the Bahamian squad proved crucial in
opening the northern Caribbean Rugby World Cup qualification
tournament with a 23-15 win over longstanding nemesis, the Cay-
man Islands, before the home team wrapped up victory with one
game left to play by beating Bermuda 24-15.
S Although sometimes starved of quality possession by the stronger
/ ands:more technically-gifted Cayman and Bermuda forwards, the
Bahamas' first-time tackling was enough to repel most attacking
threats, with both visiting sides noticeably lacking pace out wide to
exploit their advantage.
Instead, it was the Bahamian three-quarter line that made the
most telling mark on the tournament, their pace and skill good
enough to make the most of the opportunities they received and ter-
rorise opposing backs.
Among the key performers for the Bahamas were scrum-half
Kevin Salabie and wingers Ray Simpson and Antoine Roberts.
Head coach Steven Thompson and his staff deserve immense
credit for the 12 weeks of preparation they put the Bahamian
team through pre-tournament, and their superior fitness certainly
told in the Cayman game, as the expatriate-dominated visitors
wilted in the afternoon heat.
The tournament triumph will provide a major boost for Bahami-
an rugby and its efforts, led by development officer Elystan Miles,
to have the sport played in the school system.
The Bahamas will now face the winner of the southern Caribbean
qualification tournament in a sudden-death play-off to determine
who goes forward into the Western Hemisphere group, against
regional powers the US and Canada, for the right to play at World
Cup 2007 in France.
The Bahamas has already qualified regardless of the result today
when they play Jamaica at 3pm in their final match of the tourna-
ment. The game will be played at the Winton Rugby Field, and will
be preceded by the Bahamas 'B' team playing against Turks &
Caicos.
The tournament proper will be rounded off when Bermuda and
Cayman face each other in a match that kicks off at 5pm.
The Bahamas has already qualified by virtue of winning its first
two matches with no losses. The only other team that can gain two
wins is Cayman, who beat Jamaica on Wednesday.
However, by virtue of beating Cayman in their opening match,
the Bahamas would win any tie-breaker between the two.
Jamaica and Bermuda have lost one match and drawn one, hav-
ing tied 10-10 on the tournament's opening day.


Visit (From page 1B)


Nichols, who was recently
appointed as chairman for the
male coaches of the USA
Women's Basketball pro-
gramme, said he's really excit-
ed about what they hope to
achieve before they leave on
Wednesday.
"I'm thrilled and so excited
about this trip because it's
always been my dream to have
some of my players come,"
said Nichols, a 10-year coach at
McMurry University.
"In my 30 years as a coach,
I'm taken teams and coaches
to Russia and Africa and I've
always seen how the children
respond to athletes who are
close to their peers."
Paetzold, a 5-foot-8 guard
and Engelke, a 5-11 power for-
ward, are expected to talk
about issues and problems the
players will encounter as they
make the transition from high
school to college.
Engelke, a junior, said she's
enjoying every moment of her
stay here.


"I think it's a wonderful
learning experience. I hope I
can learn from other cultures
that I haven't been around
before," she said.
"I really like it here. The
people are extremely nice."
Paetzold, a freshman, said
she's never been anywhere like
this before, with the beach so
near and clear.
"I'm really excited to see
everything," said Paetzold,
who is just as eager to inter-
act with the youngsters. "It's
good that we get a chance to
come down here and show that
we really care about them."
As an assistant coach, Dens-
man said it's definitely a great
opportunity for her to be here.
"Just being able to help
learn and develop their skills is
what trips like these are all
about," Densman pointed out.
"I just want to help these kids
get better."
Desnman said she enjoys
being in the Bahamas because
of the people and the "lovely


accent" that helps to make this
a "beautiful island".
Coach Parnell said he's
looking forward to seeing the
improvement the players have
made over the last two years
that he's been coming here.
"We've had some great
results, as far as coming in and
seeing the kids grow and
mature, especially in the
Grove," Parnell said.
"I think it's an honour to be
asked to come down here and
do this for Mother Pratt. A lot
of people think it's a great
place to be for vacation, but
it's a working vacation."
Parnell said they hope their
appearance here will encour-
age Bahamian athletes to look
beyond our islands and into
the broader scope of the world.
Coach Jones said he's
delighted to be back to assist.
"It doesn't matter what area
it is, whether it's basketball,
track or whatever, we just want
to show them how important it
is for them to develop their


skills and their academics," he
stated.
Jones said it has always been
a pleasure to come down and
work with Patricia Johnson
and now this year, he will also
get to work with Trevor Stra-
chan on track and field.
While he doesn't have any
Bahamians in his programme
since coining over, Nichols said
he's tried, but problems arise
because the athletes generally
don't follow up on the instruc-
tions he leaves with them to
get themselves properly docu-
mented to travel.
But Nichols said he will con-
tinue to make an effort. Hope-
fully in his continued trip here,
le said he will be able to
secure a scholarship for one or
two deserving athletes.
In the meantime, he will
continue to make his trek to
the Bahamas, leaving some
knowledge and more than
$5,000 in equipment and bas-
ketball outfits for players who
they come in contact with.
