Judges overturn

May ruling on

extradition case


* By.A FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
TRADITIONN moves
agnst seven men wanted for
tri tby the United States must
proceed quickly, the Justices of
the Court of Appeal ruled yes-
terday.
-4istice-Dame Joan-Saw.yer,
along with Justices Mustapha
Ibrahim and Lorris Geripats-
ingh, who read the judgment,
ruled that the appeal sought by
the Bahamas and United States
governments should be allowed,
and that the decision of Justice
Jon Isaacs should be set aside
"in its entirety".
They also ruled that the stay
of extradition matters also be
set aside.
2 They were ruling in the case
t,)f the Minister of Foreign
Affairs, the Attorney General
and the Supt of Prisons against
Trevor Roberts, Sheldon
Moore, Brian and Lynden Deal,
Devroy Moss, Shanto Curry
and Gordon Newbold.
On May 10 this year, Justice
Isaacs ruled that the extradition
treaty is unenforceable, because
its financial implications were
not properly laid before parlia-
ment.
While making the judgment,
Justice Isaacs ruled that the
:effect of his judgment, which
would have been the release of
the seven men and their reim-
bursement of damages and
costs, be stayed "at this time".
The Appeal Court Justices
overturned that ruling yester-
Sday, and also awarded costs to
the appellants, who were rep-


resented by attorney Francis
Cumberbatch, along with Neil
Braithwaite and Lorren Klein.
Last night, the men's legal
team, headed by senior attor-
ney Maurice Glinton, were con-
tacting solicitors to make appli-
cations to the Privy Council in
London today, in an attempt to
have their case hard. beforet1he;
council rises on July 31.
The team, which also includes
Henry Bostwick QC, Godfrey
Pinder, Jerone Roberts, and
Paul Moss, is seeking the release
of their clients on a constitu-
tional motion that the men are
being detained contrary to Arti-
cle 19 (3) of the constitution,
which states that any person
being detained and not brought
before the court in a reasonable
time, should be released.
The men were arrested in
June, 2004, and to date have
had no formal charges brought
against them.
In making his submissions
yesterday, Mr Glinton told the
court that police investigators
executed search warrants on the
men on the suspicion of guns
and dangerous drugs possession,
but found .none.
He entered the warrants into
evidence, in which the police
officers noted at the back of the
warrants that nothing was found.
Trevor Roberts was among
the first to be arrested. He was
picked up at his grocery store in
Alice Town, Bimini, while Gor-
don Newbold was taken out of
a motor vehicle.
The men were told of the

Bahamas

'faced with

even higher

gas prices'

* By KRISTINA McNEIL
SINCE April, 2005, the
Bahamas has had the highest
gas prices in the region, and if
current trends continue,
Bahamians will be faced with
even higher prices, said Trade
Minister Leslie Miller in the
budget debate.
In 2001 the Caricom region
consumed a total of 2.7 billion
gallons of petroleum products,
with the Bahamas consuming
313 million gallons or 12 per
cent of the total amount.
Jamaica is the top consumer
with one billion gallons or 38
per cent of the total, followed

S outarian John Haughton,
Sc -)rdinator of Project Read,
s. ,1 there seems to be no offi-
j ?ally accepted definition of
literacy in the Bahamas and


Project Read launched

on Grand Bahama


*no ongoing studies to measure
literacy levels.
"This situation needs
urgently to be corrected," he
said.
Because there is no reliable
data available on the literacy
in the Bahamas, he said esti-
mates are based on data
released by the Department
of Statistics as well as the
experience of various agen-


cies involved in literacy train-
ing.
According to estimates, the
rate of functional illiteracy in
the Bahamas is around 20 to
40 per cent of the adult popu-
lation. This means that any-
where between 40,000 and
80,000 Bahamian adults are
considered functionally illit-
erate.
Mr Haughton said a person


is considered functionally lit-
erate when they can comfort-
ably use the alphabet and
numeric system, interpret a
wide range of more complex
structures such as words that
have vowel or consonant com-
binations, read and under-
stand more complex prose or
documents or write a short
paragraph of connected sen-
tences.
He added that the
UNESCO concept is broader
than the idea of only being
able to read and write.
"Today, the concept is
based on one's ability to mas-
ter skills used in everyday life
- hence the term functional lit-


eracy," he explained.
Mr Haughton stressed that
in order to eradicate illiteracy
there must be teamwork, col-
laboration, funding and com-
mitment between other ser-
vice clubs and organisations.
Correlation
He reported that studies
undertaken in developing
countries where literacy pro-
grammes exist show a direct


correlation between literacy
levels and social and econom-
ic life.
"Our efforts will only begin
to scratch the surface, but
remember the journey of
thousand miles begins
with the very first steps," he
said.
The Ministry of Education
was the first to establish a pro-
gramme for adult literacy
(PAL) on Grand Bahama sev-
eral years ago.

THE memory of a fallen Free National Movement freedom
fighter will be celebrated by members and supporters of the
FNM on Saturday 25 June.
A service for Alphonse "Fonz" Rolle will be held at 11am at
St Gregory's Anglican Church on Carmichael Road.
Mr Rolle passed away on June 12 after being in and out of
hospital following kidney problems.
He was a faithful member of the FNM for over 30 years and
served as the sergeant-at-arms of the party since 1982.
"Fonz taught many of us how to serve with true commit-
ment, and we trust that today's new generation of FNMs will
seek to emulate that kind of unstinting devotion to our cause,"
said FNM national chairman Carl Bethel.
Leader of the FNM Tommy Turnquest will attend the funer-
al and sends his condolences to Mr Rolle's family.
"In due course our party will establish a fitting public tribute
to his memory, and to his contribution to the building of our
winning political mixture," said Mr Turnquest.
Carl Bethel and Sidney Collie, the deputy leader of the FNM,
will also attend the funeral along with parliamentarians, party
officers and leaders of the FNM women's association and
Torchbearers association.
Mr Rolle's body will lie in State at the FNM national head-
quarters on Mackey Street from 10am to 4pm today.
An official viewing by the party leader and FNM parlia-
mentarians, executives and officers will be at 1pm.

Bahamian

convicted of

sexual crimes

in US deported

A BAHAMIAN convicted
of sexual crimes in the Unit-
ed States has been deported
to the Bahamas for the sec-
ond time, US authorities
announced yesterday.
It was reported in the Mia-
mi Herald that Wayne
Patrick Albery, 37, was con-
victed in 1998 in Alachua
County under the name
'Bayette Saunders', for
crimes including aggravated
assault and attempted sexual'
battery.
He was deported to the
Bahamas that year, but later
made his way back to Flori-
da.
Albery was again convict-
ed of a crime in December
2001 and served 46 months
in prison.
"Criminals who think that
they will re-enter the country
and remain undetected must
think twice," said field direc-
tor for US Immigration and
Customs Enforcement in
Florida Michael Rozos.

PRIME Minister Perry
Christie will become the official
"poster boy" for the Bahamas'
National Health Initiatives pro-
gramme, it was announced in
the Senate yesterday.
Minister of Health Dr Mar-
cus Bethel said Mr Christie has
agreed to become the
spokesperson for the pro-
gramme after suffering a minor
stroke early last month.
Having the opportunity to
speak with the country's CEO
during his convalescence, the
minister said Mr Christie
expressed "excitement" about
the project, and is "very will-
ing" to do all in his power to
sensitise Bahamians about the
importance of good health.

Hospital
The prime minister was ini-
tially taken to hospital on May
3 for severe hypertension, after
waking up at his Cable Beach
home experiencing physical dis-
comfort.
Following extensive medical
investigations, doctors con-
cluded that Mr Christie had
suffered a minor stroke.
He was released from hos-
pital within a week and contin-
ues to recover while attending
to reduced duties.
"I had the opportunity to
speak with him (Mr Christie)
and I reminded him of our ear-
lier commitment to the initia-
tive, and he was extremely sup-
portive," said Dr Bethel.
He said, it is the hope of his
ministry that Mr Christie's pres-
ence "will encourage as many
Bahamians as possible to join
in the efforts" to achieve a bet-
ter standard of living, to pro-
mote increased health services,
-and to increase general
health awareness in the coun-
try.


mendations of the BEST Com-
mission on the controversial LNG
proposals, stating that "the poten-
tial benefits outweigh the poten-
tial risks."
Dr Bethel also claimed that the
Bahamas can enjoy a "significant
economic boost" through the
implementation of a liquefied nat-
ural gas regasification plant.
He was speaking during his
contribution to the budget debate
in the Senate on Wednesday.
Dr Bethel told senators that
although the LNG regasification
plant proposed for Ocean Cay,
has been the subject of much
debate, "in general, LNG is safer
and more environmentally-friend-
ly than gasoline, diesel fuel or
propane we currently use on a
daily basis."
Dr Bethel said LNG becomes
potentially flammable only when


MINISTER of Health and
Environment Dr Marcus Bethel

it is converted to a gaseous state
and achieves an oxygen mix of
10-15 per cent.
When spilled, Dr Bethel said,
"LNG will rapidly evaporate into
the atmosphere without detri-
ment to the environment, unless
there is an ignition source and
the required oxygen concentra-
tion (10-15 per cent) is present."


ment is enhanced when such a
plant is located on an isolated
industrial island such as Ocean
Cay, which is more than seven
miles from the nearest inhabited
island, Cat Cay.
Dr Bethel said: "The econom-
ic impact of such a facility to the
Bahamas is significant as previ-
ously outlined by the minister of
Trade and Industry and
would help to diversify the
Bahamian economy; a desirable
goal."
Dr Bethel added that retro-fit-
ting power plants in New Provi-
dence and Grand Bahama would
enable the Bahamas to benefit
from the "cheaper source of fuel"
while benefiting from its trans-
portation to Florida, "particular-
ly as the cost of gasoline and
diesel continue to rise on the
world market."


Grant hits out at Wisdom


* By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

IN A heated sitting of the House of Assembly yes-
terday the MP for Lucaya Neko Grant lashed out at
the Minister of Youth Sports and Culture Neville Wis-
dom for his statements at the adjournment of Parlia-
ment on Monday night.
Mr Wisdom had apologised to the public on behalf of
the opposition, who walked out of the House following
the departure of former prime minister Hubert Ingraham.
Mr Grant said that he along with the other members
of the opposition walked out in protest at the way the
government was handling the people's business, and
warned Mr Wisdom to "stay out of the business of the
FNM".
"It was clear to us, and members of the public, at the
time of our departure that government ministers did
not know what was in the budgets.
"To move that 50 heads (heads 19-69) be agreed at one
time was absurd and reckless. We are not prepared to
continue to participate in the charade," he said.
According to Mr Grant, Mr Wisdom needs not to
apologise for the opposition, but rather for "wasting
over $1 million dollars" on Junkanoo bleachers in 2002,
along with a host of other things.
"He may wish to apologise and explain the misman-
agement of ticket funds as it was the auditors who said
they could not tie'ticket sales to bank deposits.
"He needs to apologise for failing to live up to the
commitments made to the Bahamian people.
"He promised to regularise regattas. Well again this
year we have Cat Island and Acklins Sailing Regattas on
the same weekend.
.'1A eeeds ttd dpo1gise for misleading a gathering in
Freepbrt at the Port Lucaya Hotel on April 8 when he
suggested during his presentation that he had something


to do with the naming of the National Softball Stadium
when he knows he had nothing to do with it," Mr Grant
said.
Tourism Minister Obie Wilchcombe interjected stat-
ing that if any minister of Youth Sports and Culture
had lost any money it would have been under the FNM's'
watch. Zhivago Laing held this post under the former
government.
Mr Wilchcombe questioned the apparent disappear-
ance of some $20,000 during Mr Laing's tenure and stat-
ed that he knew of the circumstances under which the
monies "went missing." The leader of the opposition
Alvin Smith interjected on a point of order and called for
Mr Wilchcombe to withdraw his remark unless he had
proof to corroborate it.


Man drowns at Montagu beach
By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter

A 43-YEAR-OLD male drowned on Montagu
Beach Tuesday evening.
According to police reports, Jason Darling of
Carib Road went swimming at the beach with rela-
tives.
Two other individuals on the shoreline said they
observed that Mr Darling appeared to be experi-
encing some difficulty and went to assist him.
Mr Darling was eventually brought to the shoreline
by the two observers.
He was taken to the hospital where he was pro-
nounced dead.
Foul play is not suspected and police are continu-
ing their investigations into the matter.

THE TRIBUNE







PAGE 4, THURSDAY, JUN 23, 2005 THE TRIBUN


LAST MONTH in the Letters to the Edi-
tor columns of this newspaper Mr Mike
Hudson wrote an interesting letter under
the heading "Allowing tourism to flourish."
The main tenor of his letter was that more
should and could be done to spark the
curiosity of thousands of tourists in a num-
ber of interesting ways. And it wouldn't cost
that much either.
For instance, he suggested that members
of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force could
stand guard outside the Senate building in
Rawson Square dressed in the military uni-
forms of the 1700 or 1800s to give tourists
some idea of our heritage as well as some
historical facts about the country and the
public buildings they are guarding. Such a.
colourful display would draw tourists to the
area, in addition to giving them a wonderful
photo opportunity.
In England, for instance, uniformed
guards in their heraldry and shining armour
sit mounted on their horses outside Horse
Guards in London and draw crowds every
day of the year. Similar attention is given to
the guards outside Buckingham Palace,
especially when the Changing of the Guard
is held.
And one of the tourist attractions. at the
Tower of London are the guards who are
dressed in their ancient and resplendent
Beefeater uniforms. They also carry the
pikes that were so effective against cavalry
in bygone days. And they continue to dress
up today for tradition's sake and as part of
Britain's heritage.
Not so long ago Bahamian police on traf-
fic duty on Bay Street were dressed in colo-
nial pith helmets and were the central attrac-
tion for tourists with cameras. But that has
all changed. Today we hardly see a police-
man on Bay Street.
When visitors stepped off a plane in
Hawaii they were greeted by tourism assis-
tants who put leis a garland of beautiful
flowers around their necks. Whether this
is done today we don't know, but it certain-
ly was part of Hawaii's traditional welcome.
It was a friendly gesture that quickly brought
the visitor in touch with the warmth and
beauty of the people.
Why couldn't all visitors to our shores be
greeted with some form of junkanoo wel-
come with goatskin drums, horns and cow

bells when they step off their cruise boats or
their aircraft. We are always talking about
junkanoo as our Bahamian culture and this
would be a wonderful (and effective) way to
introduce all our visitors to something most
have never even heard of. Other than our
Junkanoo in June festival and the normal
Christmas and New Year junkanoo parades,
our visitors rarely get to see this most
Bahamian of spectacles except perhaps at
one of the hotels at meal times, or when a
special anniversary is being celebrated.
Many different junkanoo groups could
be used in this venture and more use made
of them at all tourism related events.
Mr Hudson in his letter suggested that
US visitors would lap up the story of the
divorcee Mrs Wallis Simpson who charmed
the King of England, Edward Vlll, from his
throne. It was Edward, of course, who was
banished from England and given the post
of Governor of the Bahamas during the
Second World War. And he resided with
his wife Wallis here at Government House.
Most Americans would be fascinated by
these stories but, as Mr Hudson says: "No,
we hide these obvious assets which could
brighten our tourism product in an instance,
and bring interest to our visitors', teasing
them into knowing more and more about
our past while more and more visitors
complain there is nothing to the Bahamas
tourism product."
Many years ago on a trip to Japan we
were fascinated that at every shrine or his-
toric site there was an attractive notice board
that contained a synopsis of the history of
the shrine or its relevance to the history of
the country.
But more than that. The notice was dis-
played. in Japanese, English, French and
German. Today they have probably added
Chinese and Spanish to the list.
Where do we have any such displays? We
noticed on a visit to Abaco after last year's
hurricane that there are several interesting
notices attached to houses or streets
throughout the settlement of Hope Town -
and even where the first colonists landed
on the island in the eighteenth century. But
there is nothing comparable here in the cap-
ital. It could be corrected.

Mr

EDITOR, The Tribune
APPARENTLY, a few
weeks ago Mr Leslie Miller was
on a radio show and mentioned
that the Re-Earth lady, Mrs
Duncombe, was only getting all
the press she was getting in her
anti-LNG campaign because of
the hue of her skin... and he
thereby got her some more
press!
Immediately there was a gen-
eral hue (no pun intended) and
cry about Mr Miller having used
the "race card"; that he was
racist; that he had said some-
thing wrong; that he had done
something wrong; that he ought
not to have said what he said.
The first newspaper in which
I read the story was the Bahama
Journal, and I thought they
must have been having a par-
ticularly slow news day...
There are things that Leslie
Miller has reportedly done that
I found improper, despicable,
even; and I wouldn't dream of
defending him in relation to
them. In fact, one of the last
persons in the world who needs
being defended is Leslie Miller!
He can do such a good job of it
himself.
But I hate dishonesty even
more. Now, what did Leslie say
to have some people concluding
that he is racist? Nothing! He
might well be racist (although I
doubt it); but nothing he said
on the occasion being com-
plained about showed him to
be such. He simply made an
observation; a correct observa-
tion, in my opinion, that Mrs
Duncombe's campaign would
not be getting all the press it is if
she wasn't of the hue she is.
That statement was absolutely
true.
He made an observation
which had nothing to do with
Mrs Duncombe; if anything, it
was about the press, and if neg-
ative was negative about the
press. But it wasn't even nega-
tive about the press; Mrs Dun-
combe's participation in this
public way, as a white Bahami-
an woman, or as a white woman
in the Bahamas, is news. Her
hue is precisely the reason why
her participation in this public
campaign is good copy in the
Bahamas that and the fact
that she is challenging the gov-
ernment.
As I said, I don't know if
Leslie Miller is racist or not; but
I know that his remarks on the
occasion complained of did not
display racism. That is plain for
everyone to see; and the fact
that some people have jumped
on him for those remarks
reveals a number of very nega-


keeper who asked him one day
why he always passed his shop
where he sold ice and walked
all the way down to the white
man's shop for ice:-
"The wite man ice col'er", he
stated profoundly.
Are you wondering if that
black man might have slapped
Mr Kelly instead?
You read about it anywhere
in any newspaper?

(We can assure Mr Carroll
that a man or woman's colour
has nothing to do with the pub-
licity, or lack thereof, that he
or she gets in The Tribune. Mrs
Duncombe's colour has noth-
ing to do with the publicity her
reEarth organisation receives.
However, environmental causes
- whether we agree with them
or not rank high on today's
news agenda. And, regardless
of the messenger's skin tone,
environmental stories do make
news. It was out of place for Mr
Miller to dismiss Mrs Dun-
combe's message because of the
colour of her skin. By doing this
he certainly revealed his own
racial problems and his igno-
rance of journalism. It was Mr
Miller not the newspapers -
who took into consideration the
skin colour of the messenger,
rather than analysing her mes-

Questions on


the internet


EDITOR, The Tribune
I WAS infuriated by the
article in your Business Sec-
tion quoting Bradley. Roberts
on Friday June 17.
I could see why Mr Roberts
is trying to strongarm us into
getting rid of VOIP. My heart
breaks for all the points Mr
Roberts outlined as I can see
he really is concerned with
BTC's ability to provide effi-
cient service for all his cus-
tomers even the ones
engaged in illegal VOIP prac-
tices.
Many, many companies all
over the world have gone to


court trying to regulate what
happens over the internet.
Please, for my and the pub-
lic's sake, who really don't
want to feel we have to look
over our shoulder, tell us what
section of legislation details
how we are breaking the law
by using VOIP through ISPs
that don't include BaTelCo?
$100 million annual rev-
enue? That makes the high
rates and lousy service even
more pathetic to me.

tive things:-
In this society you can't use
the words black and white in
the same sentence without
being accused of racism; and
that attitude indicates that just
under the surface of this society
the problem of racism rages still
and that some Bahamians are
ready to jump on anything hav-
ing a semblance of race so that
they can show how liberal they
are on the subject. Apparently
in this country, too, "liberal"
has now become the opposite

I am reminded of a story that
I often heard Lionel "Lil Murp"
Murphy tell. I'm not sure of the
relevance of it to this subject;
but I remember it now:-
'One day during the 1950s, (I

on his beat on Bay Street hap-

white man, a Mr Kelly, having a

had better stop rowing Mr Kel-

caused Mr Kelly to slap him he
was going to arrest him not
Mr Kelly, the "slapper", but the

Government 'strangling'



Grand Bahama economy


S,."Copyrighted Material

* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
GOVERNMENT should
loosen its "stranglehold" on
Freeport to counteract the free-
fall of the Grand Bahama econ-
omy according to lawyer Fred
Smith.
Offering suggestions on the
best way to revitalise the island,
Mr Smith said that central gov-
ernment should let the Grand
Bahama Port Authority
(GBPA) and licensees develop
Freeport under the terms of the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement.
At the same time, he said, the
central government should hold
the Grand Bahama Port
Authority to account for its
responsibilities under the agree-
ment.
"Freeport's economy is in a
free-fall spin, spiralling to a cat-
astrophic crash. (Freeport) is a
dying economy and this PLP
government's stranglehold is
helping to suffocate it," he said
at the FNM Women's Grand
Bahama conference last week.
"The difference between how
the PLP runs the economy of
Freeport and how the FNM ran
it is like the difference between
night and day.
"The Royal Oasis hotels and
casinos are closed. The
Tractebel and El Paso LNG
facility proposals have ended in
frustration.

while diving off Orange Cay
near Andros late Monday
afternoon.
The death of Pottorf, a
crewman of the Fort Laud-
erdale-based diving vessel
Nekton Rorqual, is now
being treated 'as "mysteri-
ous".
According to US media
reports, witnesses aboard the
dive boat told police that Mr
Pottorf was "free diving" or
diving under water without
scuba equipment, when the
accident happened.
The Miami Herald report-
ed that when his body turned
up late on Monday,
bystanders attempted to
revive him with CPR and
other first aid efforts with-
out success.
Although the incident
occurred on Monday, the
Nekton Rorqual did not
return to base or report the
accident to police until
Tuesday when the vessel
returned to Fort Lauderdale.

the projects for Freeport and
West End have vanished into
the ether," he said.
Mr Smith said the potential of
Grand Bahama is being sapped
by three things: The failure of
the GBPA to resume its role as
the long-term developer and
visionary of the community; the
"unwarranted, unlawful and arbi-
trary interference by the gov-
ernment in administering, regu-
lating, controlling and develop-
ment of the business of Freeport;
and the zombie status of frag-
mented licensees who have failed
to unite as a powerful financial,
social and political force."
Mr Smith pointed out that he
is not suggesting that govern-
ment abdicate governance of
Grand Bahama to the Port
Authority, but rather that it
should regulate the island's
business and not be involved in
making business decisions
between businessmen.
"The GBPA has statutory
and contractual obligations and

A NEW three-year contract
between the Hotel Workers
Union and Club Med on San
Salvador will bring about a 10
per cent pay increase as well
as other benefits for the work-
ers of that resort.
According to Selvyn
Mckenzie, union vice-presi-
dent with responsibility for the
Club Med talks, a continued
relationship between the
union and the resort lhas ed
to swift and favourable nego-
tiations.
"Negotiations went very
well between Club Med and
the Hotel Union, it took us
one day to complete negotia-
tions," Mr Mckenzie said at
the contract signing yester-
day.
Under the agreement, the
workers will receive a six per
cent pay raise in the first year
and a four per cent increase
in the third year.
The agreement also includes
a guaranteed Christmas bonus
for workers along with a $600
bonus for perfect attendance.
There are currently 128 full-
time employees at the resort
and 35 part-time workers.
The agreement will expire
on April 20 2008.
Commenting on the nego-


tiations, Club Med regional
operations director Rick Din-
gle said: "We were able to
maintain a lot of the benefits
that we had before and
increase on those benefits as
well."

Occupancy

According to Mr Dingle, the
resort expects to enjoy a high
level of occupancy in the com-
ing months.
"The occupancy level has
met our expectations to this
point and we expect a growing
occupancy throughout the bal-
ance of the summer and on
through the winter season.
"Our occupancy right now
is in the upper 60 to lower 70
per cent, which is just about
where we expect to be," he
said.
Mr Dingle said that the
resort, recently contracted
Spirit Airlines to provide
direct charter service from
Fort Lauderdale to San Sal-
vador once a week in an effort
to penetrate the North Amer-
ican market.

Kidnapping and murder






trial gets underway
Asian Culinary Week


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT Two men are
on trial in the Supreme Court
for the kidnapping and murder
of Kelsey Roker.
The 30-year-old victim was
last seen being beaten and
thrown in the trunk of a vehicle
on February 11, 2003.
Anthawn Simms and Ramon
Swain are accused of accosting
and attacking Roker in the area
of Behring Lane off Cabot Dri-
ve.
It is alleged that after beat-
ing Roker, the men placed him
in the trunk of a car and drove
away with him.
Roker has not been seen
since and is presumed
dead.
Justice Stephen Isaacs pre-
sides over the matter, which is
before a jury of six men and
women.
Prosecuting on behalf of the
Crown are Gwaine Ward and
Albertha Bartlette of the Attor-
ney General's Office.

Representing
Lawyers Carlson Shurland
and Simeon Brown are repre-
senting Simms and Swain,
respectively.
Kelsey's brother Vincent
Gardiner was with him on Feb-
ruary 11 and allegedly witnessed
the attack at Behring Lane
sometime around 4.30pm.
Gardiner said he and a co-
worker named "Chef" were
walking in the area when they
saw a group of about six to eight
men in a yard.
The witness said he saw one
of the men approach Kelsey.
He said there was an exchange ......
of words and the man slapped
his brother.
Gardiner told the Court that
a second man retrieved a
chrome baseball bat from a gold
vehicle and swung it at Kelsey,


who ran for cover behind a
vehicle.
The witness said he and his
friend, who were being pre-
vented by the other men from
assisting Kelsey, managed to
escape on foot.
That was the last time he saw
his brother, Gardiner told the
court.


He said one of his brother's
attackers was light skinned and
stood about five feet, seven
inches tall with a full beard and
short curly hair.
The second was slim and
stood about six feet, two inches
tall, he said.
Gardiner gave two statements
to police regarding the incident


on February 17 and April 11,
2003.
Natasha Green, the sister of
the deceased, said Kelsey lived
with her. She and her aunt,
Matilda Rolle, told the court
they saw him last on February
11.
The case is set to continue
Today.


'TEAM' work encouraged



in 2005 hurricane season


* By KRISTINA McNEIL-

THREE to four major category hurri-
canes are expected in the 2005 hurricane
season, prompting National Emergency
Management Agency (NEMA) officials to
make clear to the public what should be
done in an emergency situation.
The 2005 hurricane awareness week,
which begins today, will be held under the
theme: "Together emergencies are man-
aged" (TEAM).
It will aim to encourage communication
and co-operation between authorities and
members of the local community.
Hurricane awareness week will run until
June 30.

Affected
According to Mr Carl Smith, undersec-
retary at NEMA, an estimated 83,000
Bahamians were directly affected by hur-
ricanes Francis and Jeanne last year.
Last year's hurricane week, held in May,
was not very well observed, but
experts hope that the public will be more
attentive. to warnings and advisories this
year.
"Just because you were safe last year
doesn't mean you should not evacuate this
year," warned Mr Smith.
"Knowing what to do in an emergency
situation is the best protection you can
have."
"The mindset of Bahamians needs to
change," said Hubert Bain, of the logistics
department of NEMA.
"It's not fair to expect the government to
be there.


"People should have supplies that can
last at least two weeks in case help can't
get to them within a day or two in the
aftermath of the storm," he said.
. Mr Smith also advised the public to pay
attention to the value of their neighbors,
those who have special skills, as well as
those with special needs such as the dis-
abled and elderly.
From 1944 to 2004 the Bahamas has
been hit by 339 cyclones, hurricanes, trop-
ical storms and depressions.

Radar.
The $1.3 million Doppler radar system
acquired by the Department of Meteorol-
ogy at the beginning of the month will be
able to provide more accurate co-ordi-
nates for weather systems, as well as iden-
tify severe weather outside the systems,
said Trevor Basden from the Met Depart-
ment.
An exhibit for hurricane awareness week
will be on at the Mall at Marathon starting
today.
It will be on until Saturday and presen-
tations will also be made at various social
clubs.
Expanding beyond the, week, the com-
mittee will also host a 1-day workshop in
collaboration with the Catholic Archdio-
cese in Nassau.
NEMA is working in collaboration with
the Red Cross, the Department of Social
Services, the Ministry of Works, the Min-
istry of Health, the Department of Mete-
orology, the Bahamas Air and Sea Res-
cue Association (BASRA) and the Royal
Bahamas Defense Force.

National Drug Council official



highlights scale of problem


* By KRYSTEL ROLLE
DRUG abuse is one of the
biggest problems facing the
youth of the Bahamas, a Nation-
al Drug Council senior official
told the Tribune yesterday.
Council executive-director
Marcia Munnings said the prob-


lem has become so serious that
drugs are being circulated
throughout the school system.
Children as young as 11-years-
old are now abusing drugs, she
said.
Sergeant Barry Bannister of
the Drug Enforcement Unit said:
"Kids just don't value themselves


E By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Tourism Parliamentary Secretary Agatha Marcelle
urged Grand Bahamians to consider relocating to New Providence or
the Family Islands in search of job opportunities until the situation in
Freeport improves.
"Freeport has had a rough time because of the two hurricanes and we
know that employment isn't what it should be here," said Ms Marcelle.
With the Royal Oasis Resort closed, hundreds of hotel workers are
jobless and store owners at the International Bazaar are being forced to
close their businesses.
The situation has also affected straw vendors and taxi drivers in
Freeport.
While speaking Tuesday to the Rotary Club of Lucaya, Ms Marcelle
said the Ministry of Tourism is looking into ways to re-stimulate the
economy in Grand Bahama.
Economy
"One of the areas we are looking at to really stimulate the economy
again is a cruise port facility," she said, noting that more details would
be forthcoming from the Minister of Tourism.
Until then, she encouraged residents of Grand Bahama to begin
exploring the idea of moving into New Providence, Exuma, Eleuthera,
and Mayaguana.
"You must begin to move to where there are things happening until
you can return back to that place in Grand Bahama where you once
were," she said.
Despite the Bahamas' successes in attracting investors to the coun-
try, Mr Marcelle stressed that the region has become increasingly com-
petitive.
"I see Disney and Pirates of the Caribbean is gone until September,
and some other company has changed its mind.
"We cannot afford for this to happen because this is becoming an
extremely competitive region and investors do not have to come to the
Bahamas," she said.
She said Bahamians must get out of their comfort zone and begin to
change their mindset and become more skilled to keep pace with the
world.
"We.have to begin to be more determined to produce a skilled
workforce, and I believe a national training and development agency is
necessary.
"We live in an era of very rapid change and I don't know if we are
responding as quickly as we should or as we could to those changes.
"It is absolutely necessary and important to keep pace with the rest
of the world," she said.


enough. Part of the problem is
that kids are having kids."
He said that sometimes when
young persons become parents,
they don't know enough them-
selves to have anything to pass
on to their children, who grow
up without guidance as a conse-
quence.
The parents of some teenage
drug abusers fail to spend
enough quality time with their
children, or to teach them about
morals, values and the difference
between right and wrong, he
continued.
In support of the Internation-
al Day Against Drug Abuse and
Illicit Trafficking, which will be
recognised on June 26 in United
Nations member-states, the
National Drug Council hosts an
annual hobbies fair.
Fair started 17 years ago in an
effort to divert the attention of


the young away from drugs by
helping them find a hobby.
This year's fair was held on
Saturday, June 18, and Mrs
Munnings reported that over
3,000 people attended which
was the biggest crowd to date.
The theme for this year's
International Day against Drug
Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is
"Value yourself; make healthy
choices". The campaign is aimed
at teenagers and young adults
who are easily influenced to try
drugs.
"Peer pressure is one the
biggest reasons young people use
drugs. They also use drugs in an
effort to fit in," Mr Bannister
said.
He said more effort needs to
be made in the schools to teach
children about the health risks
and dangers associated with drug
abuse.

According to the United
Nation's Office on Drugs and
Crime, young people who prac-
tice sports are less likely to abuse
drugs.
"Young girls and boys who
practice sports learn skills and
values that will stay with them
for a lifetime: Self-confidence,
discipline, teamwork, and fair
play," said the UN.

STRAIGHT UP TALK

ZH IVAR GO LAING


The Member of Parliament
for Farm Road and Prime
Minister labelled some mem-
bers of the opposition as
"cackling hyenas".
These things all happened
in the Lower House of the
Parliament of The Bahamas,
which seems to have been
transformed from a debating
chamber to a chamber of
thugs. What next? One shud-
ders to think.
KEEP APOLOGISING,
MINISTER WISDOM

A pparently, Neville
Wisdom, Minister
of Youth, Sport and Culture,
felt the need to apologise to
the young people of The
Bahamas for what he regard-
ed as the poor behaviour of
former Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham in the House of the
Assembly at the close of the
debate on the 2005/2006 Bud-
get on Monday last.
Mr Ingraham tried strenu-
ously to defend himself
against claims by members of
the government concerning
his prime minister's pension
and when the Chair would not


allow him to speak, he left the
House of Assembly. For this
Mr Wisdom felt that he owed
the young people of the nation
an apology.
What was so strange about


decorum that right-thinking
Bahamians would want their
children to emulate?
Why did he not apologise
to the young people of the
country for the behaviour of
his colleague Bradley Roberts,
whose behaviour before and
after Mr Wisdom came to the
parliament left much to be
desired?
Indeed, why did he not
apologise to the young peo-

the minister's apology was
that it did not follow other
apologies he should have
made. Why did the minister
not apologise to young peo-
ple for the thug-like comments
of his colleagues Kenyatta

ple of this nation for his own
poor judgment in using scarce
public funds to rent foreign
bleachers when the same
funds could have provided
them with programmes that
they so desperately need?
Why has he not apologised
for the charade he has made
of the Ministry of Youth,
Sport and Culture since going
there? His staff complain bit-
terly of his childish and petty
practices and the society has
yet to benefit broadly from his
efforts. Even his budget con-
tribution was a pathetic per-
formance for a minister who
has spent now three years in
his ministry.
The first rule of youth min-
istry is "don't use young peo-
ple." That is exactly what Mr
Wisdom was doing.
He could not give two hoots
about how the young people
of this nation saw what tran-
spired in the Parliament, oth-
erwise he would have got up
long before he did to apolo-
gise to them for the:many
shameful antics of he and his
colleagues, both inside and
outside the Parliament.

IMMIGRANTS
EMPLOYED AT BIMINI
BAY A DISGRACE

Recently, I travelled to
Bimini to address a
high school graduation there.
While in Bimini I took time
to tour the Bimini Bay devel-
opment.
The work being done there
is impressive, at feast as far as
the constructed homes are
concerned. The environmental
issues, however, left much to
be desired.
Yet, what was much more
disturbing was that while
walking around the develop-
ment, I saw scores and scores
of foreign workers, mostly
Spanish-speaking, doing work
which Bahamians can surely
do.
These workers were mixing
mud, stripping walls, studding
up buildings, mounting exte-
rior panels, driving backos,
driving trucks, driving trac-
tors, hanging doors, etc. They
were doing typical construc-
tion work.
There were few Bahamians
around and the ones that were
seemed to be involved with
landscaping the development
and.were doing an outstand-
ing job at it.
I was told that there were
as many as 200 foreign work-
ers on the site. This number
was probably an exaggeration

JONe'
ALHIE'

but there had to be more than
100 such workers.
When the former prime
minister complained about the
number of foreign workers on
site, he did not note that from
all appearance, precious little
work being done on the site
required any foreign workers
at all.
It seems that the foreign
workers were hired primarily
as a cost-saving issue and not
as an issue of making up for
shortage of manpower or
accessing specialised skills,
which are the only conditions
generally under which foreign
work permits are issued.
Minister Peet seemed to
admit this much but why? The
unemployment rate among
Bahamians is some 10.2 per
cent. It was not enough for the
Minister of Immigration sim-
ply to acknowledge that there
were more foreign workers
than desirable. He owed a
more definitive explanation as
to .whether his ministry issued
the work permits, how many it
issued and why they were
issued.
Quite frankly, the Bimini

Bay project is not a matter of
balancing the needs of the
developer with protecting the
rights of Bahamian workers.
The Bimini Bay project is an
immigration debacle and the
solution is to have the devel-
oper employ Bahamian work-
ers to do the work that they
are quite capable of doing.
What has happened at
Bimini Bay in terms of the
employment of foreign work-


ers is a disgrace and the PLP
should be ashamed of itself,
especially since it is so fond
of claiming to be the inven-
tors and promoters of the
"Bahamianisation" policy.

Freeport, which has become the
second largest economic centre
in the Bahamas.
Provided for in the HCA are
tax exemptions, concessions and
other benefits to business
licensees of the Grand Bahama
Port Authority.
The agreement has contributed
to the tremendous growth and
development of the industrial sec-
tor in Freeport, which has been
described as the industrial capital
of the Bahamas.
Co-chairman and CEO Julian
Francis said the Port Authority
is extremely proud of the tremen-
dous benefits which have been
enjoyed by thousands of Bahami-
ans as a direct result of the HCA.
"The positive impact of this
partnership between the govern-
ment of the Bahamas and the
Port Authority has not only been
felt in the city of Freeport and
on the island of Grand Bahama,
but it has drawn Bahamians from
far and wide throughout the
entire length and breadth of the
Bahamas in search of greater
opportunities and higher levels
of well-being which were before


only available in Nassau," he said.
Mr Francis, Port Authority
deputy co-chairman Willie Moss,
president Albert Gray, and senior
vice president Barry Malcolm
held a press conference Wednes-
day to announce events to be held
between July 29 and August 7 to
mark the significant milestone.
Hurricanes
Mr Francis noted that prior to
the hurricanes which devastated
the island last September, plans
were well underway to mark the
occasion, but had to be modified
to reflect the unexpected and
unbudgeted expenditure neces-
sary to assist in the rebuilding of
the island.
On Friday July 29, an exhibit in
the foyer of the Sir Charles Hay-
ward Library will showcase, the
growth and development of
Freeport.
On Saturday July 30, the staff
of the Port Authority will host a
"Parade of Stars" variety show
at Pro Cathedral of Christ the
King at 8pm.

THE Abaco Club on Wind-
ing Bay, hosted its second annu-
al beach party, for the faculty
and students from Every Child
Counts School, in Marsh Har-
bour.
ECC., as it is known on Aba-
co, is the only school for excep-
tional children with special
needs on the island.
Last year the unique group
of adults and children became
the first to have a beach party at
the Abaco club since its incep-
tion, by Peter de Savary, the
founder and the chairman of
the Abaco Club on Winding
Bay.
The second ECC fun day was
held last Wednesday before the
school closed on Friday.
New features this year putting


lessons from resident golf pro
Kenny Gargiulo at the club's
Tropical Links, golf course, and
a spell on the clay courts with
the club's tennis pro, Keith
Greene.
The group also enjoyed a
lunch prepared by, the club's
own international chief, Samuel
Favella.
Entertainment came from
Edward "Caligula"Richardson,
the Magician, who was flown in
from Nassau, to entertain Mr.
de Savary's honoured guests.
Known on stage as Caligula,
he is a Bahamian. magician who
is also sometimes known as the
Magic Man. He has preformed
in many European countries,
and is presently performing-at
Atlantis, on Paradise Island. He


also opened for many big names
in the entertainment industry
including Bill Crosby.
Mr de Savary said. "I missed
the first party, but made certain
not to miss this one". He added:
"All children are dear to me,
but this special group is more
endeared, because they require
much more love and attention".
Lyn Major, the school's
founder and principal said: "We
cannot thank Mr de Savary and
all of his attentive staff enough
for their generosity and hospi-
tality". She added: "The chil-
dren can now begin their sum-
mer vacations, with happy
memories that will enhance the
anticipation of returning to
school at the beginning of the
new school year".

Challenge for leadership


likely to be a 'bloodbath'


FROM page one
made this announcement.
Dion has always been very
aggressive. I believe he will put
up a good fight," said Mr Wells;
The MP said he expects no
FNM member offering himself
for leadership to achieve a clear
majority.
"It's going to be quite a fight.
Dion has just as much support
as Tommy (Turnquest ), Brent
(Symonette) and (Hubert)
Ingraham," he noted.
Mr Wells said that Mr
Foulkes' stands as much chance
as other possible contenders
because he enjoys significant


support from the FNM council.
"When it comes to the coun-
cil, Dion has quite a bit of sup-
port, Tommy has some, Brent
has very little and Ingraham has
a limited amount," he added.
Mr Wells said Mr Foulkes'
announcement is likely to be
only the first in many political
shifts to come in the near
future.
"I suspect that the next 60-
90 days will be extremely inter-
esting for the PLP and the
FNM. Listening to the prime
minister, he has been very
guarded about the future. I
expect that by the end of Sep-
tember, there will be some


shake-ups," he said.
Mr Turnquest, who firmly
intends to run for the party
leadership himself, pointed out
that "it is most definitely Mr
Foulkes' right to offer himself."
Asked if Mr Foulkes' bid for
leadership will damage their
friendship, Mr Turnquest said:
"I cannot predict the future."
Mr Symonette said the FNM
believes very strongly in democ-
racy, and that all contenders are
welcome.
"Of course there is still some
time until our convention in
November and in the interim we
fully acknowledge Tommy Turn-
quest as our leader," he said.


Gas prices likely to rise

further, warns Miller


FROM page one
by Trinidad and Tobago with
444 million gallons (16 per cent).
According to the Caribbean
Energy Minister's Bulletin of
April, 2005, Jamaica has a total
margin of $0.37 and Trinidad
and Tobago a margin of $0.19,
the lowest in the region.
"Why is it that the Bahamas
has a margin of $0.77?" asked
Mr Miller.
As a result of rising oil prices,
gas prices have reached all-time
highs within the past year, with
consumers in New Providence
and the Family Islands paying
an average of up to $3.85 and
$4.28 respectively, he added.
"This has the potential to
restrict economic growth, and
lead to increases in the rate of
inflation," continued Mr Miller.
"It also negatively affects the
competitiveness of our tourism
industry."
With crude oil prices rising
to $60 per gallon just this week,
then falling below $59 yester-
day, gas prices are already
reflecting the changes.
According to Associated Press,
after crude oil goes through
refining, distribution and retail,
gas prices can only rise.


"How long this takes varies,
but it should take several days,
at least," said Michael Shana-
han, spokesman for the Ameri-
can Petroleum Institute in
Washington, DC, a trade group
representing the US oil industry.
In Nassau, gas prices are see-
ing a decrease since last month,
now at $3.60 at Shell stations. In
South Florida gas prices now
range from $2.20 per gallon in
Miami to $2.254 in West Palm
Beach and Boca Raton.
Although gas prices are down
from May, they have seen an
increase in the past week.
The price of crude oil is a
worldwide concern, as unrest in
Norway and Nigeria can have
a devastating.effect on gas
prices. According to the Asso-
ciated Press, oil workers in Nor-
way threatened to strike, possi-
bly cutting Norwegian oil pro-
duction by one million barrels a
day. Norway is the world's
third-largest oil exporter.
Meanwhile in Nigeria, pro-
testers were planning a three-
day rally within the next few
weeks to demand a greater
share of oil they should shut
down during the process, the
Ijaw Youth Council in Nigeria
reported. Unrest in Nigeria con-


tributed to the rise in crude oil'
prices last year.
According to Mr Garner
Dawkins, chairman of the Shell
Dealers Association, most of
our oil now comes from Cura-
cao. The reason margins in the
Bahamas appear so high com-
pared to others in the region
has a lot to do with the high
cost of living in the Bahamas,
he explained.
Business, electricity and
labour costs contribute to the
high margin, but the govern-
ment duty of $1.06 per gallon
charged on gasoline hikes the
margin up even higher.
According to Mr Miller, the
government is currently in
negotiations with Venezuela
and other oil producing coun-
tries to "assist the countries in
the region in reducing the debil-
itating effect that the spiralling
cost of fuel is having on our
economies."
The proposal under negotia-
tion is the PETROCARIBE
Initiative, which was first pro-
posed to Venezuela in July,
2004.
The price of diesel, now $2.72
at Shell stations, is also expect-
ed to fluctuate along with gas
prices.

Foulkes' bid for FNM leadership


FROM page one
under the current PLP govern-
ment," he said.
"The Bahamian people
deserve better. The fresh breeze
has gone stale and help and
hope have been turned to help-
lessness," he declared in a press
release yesterday.
Mr Foulkes was formerly the
deputy leader of the FNM but
resigned his post soon after the
2001 general election.
While Minister of Education
he was accused of using gov-
ernment contracts to influence
votes in the FNM's leadership
contest in 2001, an accusation
that he denies to this day.
He said that his only "sin"
was to ensure that qualified
FNMs were included on the list
of small contractors for summer
school repairs.


"I did not discriminate
against any PLP contractor and
I saw no reason why I should
discriminate against people in
my own party," he said.
Mr Foulkes said he was dis-
appointed at those who scoffed
at the idea of women being on
the list of small contractors.
"Women are also likely to be
contractors and doing other
things that in days gone by used
to be the exclusive preserves of
men. Those days are indeed
gone, and I say good riddance."
He said he firmly believed
in the ideals of the FNM, in the
potential of the party, and that a
FNM prime minister and cabi-
net can "again do right by the
Bahamian people".
"Many Bahamian families are
struggling to be better off. They
are looking for a helping hand
to provide better education for

suspicion that they were
exporting dangerous drugs to
the United States.
The thrust of their motion
was that, according to the ben-
efits of Article 19 of the Con-
stitution, they were deprived
of personal liberty.
Commenting after the rul-
ing yesterday, attorney Moss
said: "We were not surprised at
the outcome, knowing the
nature of this court. However,
we are surprised that the stay
was not acceded to, because
these are very important con-
stitutional matters that have
been raised legitimately.
"Not only that, but it was


raised by citizens of the
Bahamas, who have the inher-
ent protection of the Consti-
tution. Clearly, it was a good
arguable case, because it con-
vinced a judge of the Supreme
Court of the Bahamas. You
must err on the side of the pro-
tection of the citizen."
In light of the ruling that
extradition matters be execut-
ed against the men "expedi-
tiously", charges are now
expected to be brought against
them and the process of extra-
diting them is set to begin.
However, Mr Moss said the
team expects to have an audi-
ence with the Privy Council
before those proceedings
begin.

their children. They are praying
for a safer Bahamas in which
to raise their children.
"In the campaign ahead I
intend to speak up for this great
country and especially for those
who cannot speak for them-
selves. The Bahamian people
are concerned about our econ-
omy," said Mr Foulkes.
The former minister said the
race will not be about "Dion
versus Tommy or whomever
else may contend".
"Ours is a diverse party with
a deep talent bench. This race is
not about personalities. It is
about the future of the Bahami-
an people. It is about our chil-
dren, our senior citizens, our
environment, our classrooms
and hospitals, our roads, and
our place in the world," said Mr
Foulkes.
He said that he now knows


he is ready for leadership.
"I know the Bahamian peo-
ple and I know my party...I have
learned how to follow and how
to lead," said Mr Foulkes.
The former deputy leader
said that he will not compro-
mise on the jobs issue.
"The Bahamian people know
that the FNM can be trusted to
fulfil the aspirations of all who
seek a better quality of life in
our Bahamas.
"The majority of Bahamians
must rely on jobs to secure a
good quality of life for them-
selves and their families.
"But there are many other
Bahamians who must be pro-
vided with more opportunities
in commerce and industry so
that Bahamians can have a
greater share in the ownership
of the economy of our coun-
try," he said.

parties and the public if the
matter is brought to conclusion
in an expedient manner.
"We are in negotiations with
the government at the moment
and we hope that we will be
able to settle this," he said.
Mr Evans, however, could
not go into details of the nego-
tiations.
"Obviously I can't talk about
any figures," he added.
Mr Evans said the claim that
Ms Thompson had been offered
a $300,000 "golden handshake"
by the government to leave her
position, as reported by The Tri-
bune last week, "is completely
erroneous."
Commenting on the police
presence at the Registrar Gen-
eral's office, Mr Evans said that
since the incident when Ms
Thompson's attempted return
to her office resulted in a heat-


ed stand-off, officers are moni-
toring the situation "to the best
of their judgment."
Ms Thompson was hired in
August, 2004, on a three-year
contract to serve as Registrar
General of the Bahamas and
inspector of financial and cor-
porate providers on an annual
salary of $51,200.
In January, Ms Thompson
was fired from her position by
the Judicial Legal Service Com-
mission (JLSC).
However, earlier this month
Supreme Court Justice Hugh
Small quashed the decision.

Serro or 'Coastal Awareness'


E By LINDSAY
THOMPSON
Bahamas Information
Services.
STUDENTS from schools
throughout the country were
honoured for their impressive
exhibitions on the environment
'during an awards ceremony cap-
ping off this year's Coastal
Awareness School Competition.
The ceremony was held Fri-
day, June 17, in the foyer of the
Ministry of Education on
Thompson Boulevard.
North Eleuthera High School
took top honours in the high
school category with "a very well
researched and excellent" pre-
sentation.
The Ministries of Tourism and
Education and the National
Coastal Awareness Committee
headed by Beverly J T Taylor,
collaborated to stage public
awareness and educational activ-
ities for Coastal Awareness
Month observed during April
2005.
Also participating in the pro-
ject were the Bahamas Environ-
ment, Science and Technology
(BEST) Commission, the Nature
Conservancy and the Bahamas
Reef Environment Educational
Foundation (BREEF).
The month's activities includ-
ed a Coastal Awareness Month
Competition, in which students
throughout the Bahamas were
asked to identify and recommend
solutions to challenges in their
coastal environments.
The purpose of the competi-
tion was to enable students

istry of Health and Environment
Ron Pinder stressed the impor-
tance of preserving the natural
surroundings.
Mr Pinder quoted the former
US president Franklin Roosevelt
who said: "The Nation that
destroys its soil and undermines
its environment destroys itself
and undermines its very exis-
tence."
He noted that analytical data,
as well as obvious evidence are
indications that daily habits and
everyday actions and activities
of Bahamians are having a pro-
found and significant impact on
the balance of nature.

Future
"How we live today also
affects how future generations
will be able to live in the world of
tomorrow," Mr Pinder said. "The
resources we use, the ways in
which we care for our coastal
zone and treatment of marine
life, in particular, will all
have a direct impact on the qual-
ity of life inherited by our chil-
dren."
He said all persons must take
an active role in the preservation
of marine resources, and stu-
dents, whose minds are being
conditioned for life and work
outside of the classroom, are an
important part of this.
In this regard, he said, the
competition is one of the many
mechanisms used to create an
awareness among students of the
incredible challenge and.respon-
sibility they face in ensuring and


preserving the country's marine
environment for the future.
Mr Pinder said student partic-
ipation in the competition would
spark an appreciation for and
awareness of the role they can
play as environmental stewards,
which would help to ensure s'us-
tainability of the Bahamas'
marine reserves.
"The fact is that even though
we may not live right near a
coastal zone, oceans have a great
impact in our lives.
"The statistics are that approx-
imately 30 per cent of the world's
salt comes from the oceans ..
Scale fish and other kinds of
seafood resource, oil as well as
natural gases are all oceanic or
marine resources," Mr Pinder
said.
"So no matter where we live,
we all continue to be the benefi-
ciaries of the ocean's resources in
some form or another."
Second place in the senior cat-
egory of the contest went to C I
Gibson senior high school and
third place to the Government
high school.
In the junior division, Spanish
Wells all-age school took top
honours, Matthew Town all-age
school placed second, and LW
Young junior high placed third.
The winner in the primary
division was Nicholls Town pri-
mary school.
Second place went to Yellow
Elder primary and Freeport pri-
mary placed third.
The exhibition is mounted in
the foyer of the Ministry of Edu-
cation.

CRESTOR
rosuvastatin

Life isfor living





You can be assured that at AstraZeneca,
patient safety and well-being are our number one priority

AstraZeneca only provides patients medications that are safe and
effective. And it's no different with CRESTOR1 (rosuvastatin).
We owe nothing less to you, our patients

A medication can be more effective and just as safe

It is well known that CRESTOR lowers bad cholesterol better than the leading medications
in its class1'2, helping millions of people reach healthy cholesterol levels. But what you may
not be aware of is the extent to which we investigated the safety of CRESTOR.

In order to gain FDA approval, the CRESTOR your doctor has prescribed was extensively
tested and thoroughly proven with more than 12,000 patients in clinical trials. To date, more
than 50,000 patients have received CRESTOR in clinical trials, including patients on
continuous therapy for nearly 4 years.

In addition, CRESTOR has been prescribed more than 21 million times worldwide to over
4.7 million patients.


The FDA has confidence in the safety and efficacy of CRESTOR

The scientists at the FDA who are responsible for the approval and ongoing review of
CRESTOR have, on March 2005, publicly confirmed that CRESTOR is safe and effective;
and that the concerns that have been raised have no medical or scientific basis3. This
occurred after a careful review of all available data, including preclinical data, premarketing
clinical studies, Phase 4 clinical studies, and post marketing adverse event reporting.

And if you want to see for yourself how the safety of CRESTOR compares, the most
up-to-date scientific information about CRESTOR is fully accessible at
wwwrosuvastatininformation.com There you will see the evidence that CRESTOR is as
safe as other currently marketed statins.

At AstraZeneca, we are confident and proud of the safety and efficacy of
CRESTOR

To date, millions of patients taking CRESTOR in more than 52 countries are on their way
to achieving their cholesterol goals, both safely and effectively.

For more information, talk to your doctor, call 393 4854 or visit our website www.crestor.com
or contact us at crestor@astrazeneca.co.cr

Lawsuits in resident's



'large scale' $800m



fraud are resolved


ALL lawsuits involving a
bankrupt Bahamian permanent
resident accused of "a very large
scale" fraud have been settled,
The Tribune understands, fol-
lowing lengthy legal actions in
the Bahamas and Cayman
Islands.
The case involves the former
head of the Kuwait Investment
Authority in London, Sheikh
Fahad Mohammed Al Sabah,
and trusts domiciled in the
Bahamas and the Cayman
Islands that he used to try and
conceal his wealth from credi-
tors, one of whom he owed $800
million to.
The Sheikh was judged a
bankrupt under the Bahamian
Bankruptcy Act on June 29,
2001, and the trustee of his
bankruptcy, Clifford Culmer of
Bahamas-based BDO Mann
Judd, has since been engaged
in a lengthy search for his assets
with which to repay creditors.


The Privy Council said there
was "no reason" to doubt the
Sheikh's connection to the
Bahamas, describing him as a
permanent resident.
The Tribune understands,
though, that all matters relat-
ing to the Sheikh's Bahamian
and Cayman trusts have since
been resolved, some legal
actions having been initiated as
far back as 1994 and 1995.

Trusts
The issue came to light fol-
lowing a Privy Council ruling
earlier this year. It threw out
an appeal by the Sheikh's wife
and son, beneficiaries of two of
his Cayman-registered trusts,
that sought to prevent the
Grand Court of the Cayman
Islands recognising Mr Culmer
as bankruptcy trustee of the
Sheikh's property in that nation
and giving him "all powers" to


THE Bahamian financial services industry's economic con-
tribution "moderately increased" in 2004, with sector employ-
ment increasing by 2.6 per cent per annum compared to the pre-
vious five years' 0.4 per cent growth.
A Central Bank of the Bahamas survey on the industry's
contribution to the Bahamian economy in 2004, released yes-
terday, found that total sector employment increased by 113 to
4,366 persons at year-end.
Bahamian staff increased by 104 persons, a growth rate of 2.7
per cent, to reach 4,092, after a 239 or 5.7 per cent reduction in
2003. Expatriate staff numbers also rose by 9 to 274, compared
to a decrease of 18 in 2003.

Presence
The Central Bank said that while the number of bank and
trust company licencees decreased in 2004, going from 284 in
2003 to 266, due to its physical presence requirements, employ-
ment and industry spending had risen.
The industry regulator said the outlook for the Bahamian
financial services industry remained positive, with the interna-
tional sector able to "extract increased benefits" and "provide
ongoing opportunities for income and employment growth".
But the Central Bank report warned: "The Bahamas will
continue to be challenged to respond effectively to policy devel-
opments originating in the major industrial economies that
could affect the sector's viability..........
"Continued innovations in product development, an effective

Government still


hopeful of Ginn


breakthrough


act in that role.
The Privy Council judgement
described how, under the
Sheikh's direction, the Kuwait
Investment Authority
"embarked on a huge pro-
gramme of investment in Spain"
through a Spanish company
named Grupo Torras.
The judgement recorded:
"With the help of co-conspira-
tors, the debtor defrauded
Grupo Torras on a very large
scale." The scheme involved
four separate fraudulent
schemes concocted between
1988 and 1990, and the Sheikh
was found liable "for very large
damages" after a long civil trial
in London.
At the time of the Privy
Council judgement in early
2005, Grupo Torras was said to
have recovered from the Sheikh
and his trusts only $178 million
of the $800 million proof of debt
it had submitted.

Appointed
Mr Culmer was appointed as
trustee in bankruptcy on July
30, 2001, and among the
Sheikh's assets that he target-
ed were two Cayman Islands-
based trusts, the Comfort Trust
and the Eaglet Trust. According
to the Privy Council judgement,
the Comfort Trust was previ-
ously The Chester Trust, and
was established under Bahami-
an law on September 29, 1992,
before it re-domiciled to the
Cayman Islands.
The Privy Council said in its
judgement: "The trustee in
bankruptcy's case is that the two
trusts own and control, through
a network of companies, very
valuable assets (the Comfort
Trust alone is said to be worth
over $27. million), which enable
the debtor, despite his bank-
ruptcy, to enjoy a life of luxu-
ry ...............

question, the Comfort Trust,

Extra power




| comes from




the Intranet


nformation, informa-
tion, information.
Increasingly, business-
es are faced with the
ongoing challenge of
finding new ways to access and
provide accurate information
within shorter timeframes.
Company-wide access to time-
ly information can determine
the success of sales, time-to-
market, customer service and
other mission critical opera-
tions.
Intranets and Extranets can
improve this information deliv-
ery process.
Definition
An Intranet is an internal or
private web-based network that
makes use of Internet tools and
technology. Intranets allow
companies to collaborate and
share information efficiently
among their employees. In
many instances, it is a central
repository of company infor-
mation.
An Extranet simply extends
parts of a company's Intranet
externally to allow authorised
users (such as customers, part-
ners) access to relevant infor-
mation. One common-place
example of a widely-used
Extranet is that of the FedEx
tracking system
(www.fedex.com) that we reg-
ularly use to track the location
of packages.
Intranet and Extranets build
on the features and platform
of the internet, which provides
users with the familiar web
look and feel.
Benefits
Here are some ways that an
Iiffraia tor Extranet can .bene-,


fit your company:


Increased Productivity; By
providing centralised access to
relevant data, the right infor-
mation becomes easily acces-
sible at any time. Advanced
searching capabilities reduce
the frustration and time spent
searching for misplaced or mis-
filed data.
Application Integration:
Information from multiple sys-
tems can be consolidated and
presented in oAe view. You will
no longer need to open several
applications to obtain daily
required information. Data
from legacy applications can
be easily manipulated, thus
extending the life of many aged
application packages.
Collaboration: Sharing doc-
uments, e-mails, calendars, pro-
jects and newsletters among
your peers and.teammates
becomes seamless. As opposed
to sending multiple copies of
an e-mail to various individuals,
links are sent from a centralised
version, thus optimising data
storage. Version control capa-
bilities eliminate the need for
multiple dispersed versions and
tdopie of the same file .. '


Immediate access to up-to-
date information: By housing
information internally, compa-
nies can update and change
information immediately, thus
always providing timely and
accurate information.
Overcomes Location Barri-
ers: Geographically dispersed
offices no longer have to wait
for printed data and faxes. Files
can be posted to the Intranet
and accessed from any location
with valid access rights. Cor-
porate databases can also be
shared via the use of a browser.
Reduced Printing Costs: You
can reduce the cost associated
with printing correspondences
and memos by providing data
online.
Case Studies
As part of CIO Magazine's
'Web Business Awards' in
2000, the following two organ-
isations were highlighted as
examples of companies that are
making excellent use of
Intranet technology.
Cisco Employee Connection
(Intranet)
Cisco states that it saves
more than $75 million annual-
ly as a direct result of its Web-
based employee services appli-
cations.
The 'Employee Connection'
gets 250,000 visits per month
from Cisco's 26,000 employees.

* By YOLANDA
DELEVEAUX
Senior Business Reporter
GROWTH in total visitor
arrivals to the Bahamas for 2005
showed moderate declines based
on port of entry, with growth in
arrivals to New Providence slow-
ing to an estimated 5 per cent, a
decrease from the 10 per cent
experienced in 2004. The island
saw its increase in sea arrivals
stall, and modest increases of 4.8
per cent in air arrivals.
-Visitors to the Family Islands
fell by 5 per cent, with a 6 per
cent decrease in'sea arrivals over-
shadowing an increase in air traf-
fig of 9 per cent.
Findings
According to the Central Bank
oftiihe Bahamas, which released
its latest industry findings in its'
Quarterly Economic Review,
Ganiid Bahama experienced a
decrease in arrivals of 27.2 per
cent .With capacity reduced fol-
lowing the September 2004 hur-
ricanes, the decrease was in con-
trast to a 46.6 per cent increase
seen in the first, quarter of 2004.
The decrease in arrivals to Grand
Bahama included declines of 34.7
per cent and 22.4 per cent in air
and sea arrivals respectively.
According to the Central
Bank, a decline in cruise spend-
ing and weaker stopover inflows
contributed to a reduction in esti-
mated tourism earnings during
the first quarter. The Ministry of
Tourism's survey of large hotel






2 _--=cr s -


properties in the Bahamas indi-
cated that estimated room rev-
enues rose by 2.8 per cent during
the first quarter, significantly less
than the robust 10.9 per cent
advance in 2004.
Although room night sales
decreased by 6.1 per cent, the.
average nightly room rate appre-
ciated by 9.4 per cent to $177.88.
A reduction in room capacity,
however, was marked by the 17.8
per cent decrease in available
hotel rooms throughout the
islands, led by a one-third reduc-
tion in available rooms night in
Grand Bahama.
Despite this severe constraint,
Grand Bahama only experienced
a revenue decline of 11.4 per
cent, with the remaining room
inventory experiencing a 29.8 per
cent higher average nightly room
rate of $123.35.
In New Providence, which also
operated with fewer rooms,
down by 12.2 per cent, the sector
posted a 3.1 per cent rise in total
sales and a 1.8 per cent appreci-
ation in the average nightly rates
to $109.12. This made for a 5 per
cent gain in estimated room rev-
enues.
For the Family Islands, aver-
age room revenue at large prop-
erties rose by 10.1 per cent as the
average nightly room rate firmed
by 13.1 per cent to $197.57, an
improvement that countered
both the 13.9 per cent reduction
in available rooms and a 2.7 per
cent decrease in room night sales.
For the whole Bahamas, sea
visitors, which constituted 70.8
per cent of the total and closely
track cruise activity, decreased
by 2.5 per cent to 0.96 million,
compared to robust growth of


15.7 per cent in the first quarter
of 2004. Air arrivals also fell by
4.2 per cent to 0.34 million, after
a 7.9 per cent increase in 2004.
In construction, an area that
reflects economic conditions in
the Bahamas, output strength-
ened significantly during the first
quarter, as stimulus from foreign
investments increased, supple-
menting ongoing hurricane
rebuilding activities and support
from local mortgage lending.
In its report, the Central Bank
said first quarter data from
banks, insurance companies and
the Bahamas Mortgage Corpo-
ration showed that the number of
mortgage commitments for new
construction and building repairs
almost doubled to 384, with the
corresponding value higher at
$47.1 million compared to $22.7
million in the first quarter of
2004.
Accounted
Residential commitments,
such as new housing projects,
accounted for 377 of the total
increase, compared to 189 in
2004, and were valued higher at
$45.6 million, compared to $19.3
million in the previous year.
Looking at the.commercial
sector, seven commitments were
reported at an estimated $1.5
million, compared to four pro-
jects valued at $1.4 million in
2004.
Relative to the total size of the
market, banks accounted for the
largest share of loans, 85.8 per
cent, followed by insurance com-
panies at 9.3 per cent and the
Bahamas Mortgage Corporation
at 4.8 per cent.

although filming of Pirates of
the Caribbean II and III on
Grand Bahama had been
delayed, shooting the project
would occupy 6,500 bed nights
for crew members and employ
200 to 300 Bahamians.
Workshop

He told the Film and Tele-
vision Workshop held at Our
Lucaya Resort in Freeport:
"Local Bahamians will be
working with the best in the
world on Pirates of the
Caribbean, but you must back
that up with education, and
that's why Ms Beverley Taylor
of the Ministry of Education is
here. We hope to be able to
establish a formal educational
training centre dedicated to
the film industry."
Mr O'Sullivan said the
establishment of a formal
training centre, coupled with
the creation of a Bahamas
Film Board to fund Bahamian
film productions, were neces-
sary for the development of
the industry.
Paul Quigley, chief execu-
tive of the Bahamas Film Stu-


dios at Gold Rock Creek, site
of the largest swim tank in the
world, said 120 Bahamian
workers were presently at the
site and that number was
increasing every week until
the infrastructure is complet-
ed.
The $100 million Bahamas
Film Studios Project at the old
decommissioned US Missile
Base is being constructed on
3,500 acres. Upon completion
it will be a state-of-the-art
movie and television studio
complex with film theme park.
Complex

The complex will provide a
minimum of three production
sound stages with full scale
production facilities available
to producers, and a one-stop-
shop production centre capa-
ble of producing commercials,
feature films, TV series, music,
in-house production etc.
Its state-of-the-art Collyer
water tank is the largest tank
in the world, with a gimble to
move ships to give actual at-
sea simulation and a perfect
horizon for each filming.

will of $750,000; and $250,000 in
funds at the bank, no stamp
duty would be paid on the latter
asset.
However, stamp duty at a 10
per cent rate would be levied
on the land, while the 4 per
cent rate would be applied .to
the $750,000 worth of equip-
ment and goodwill.
Thus in this example, the
Government would receive
$100,000 in stamp duty payable
on the land involved in the
sale, and $30,000 on the other
assets.
Mr Smith said the introduc-
tion of the 4 per cent stamp
duty rate would not impact
Bahamian business mergers
and acquisitions, pointing out
that the $30,000 sum generated
by his example was relatively
small.
He added: "Mergers and
acquisitions are generally busi-
ness decisions arising out of
the working environment.
They are not stopped or affect-
ed by taxation which is very
small."
A Bahamian investment spe-
cialist agreed, telling The Tri-
bune last night that in the same
way both parties to a residen-
tial real estate transaction usu-
ally agree to share the stamp
duty costs, each paying 5 per
cent, the buyer and vendor in a
merger and acquisition could
split the 4 per cent.
Concerns over the 4 per cent
stamp duty's levy were raised


in the House of Assembly by
FNM MP Brent Symonette,
who claimed that it and other
amendments had potentially
"serious ramifications". He
urged the Government to defer
enacting the amendments until
after the summer recess, giv-
ing them more thought before
Parliament reconvened in Sep-
tember.
However, the 4 per cent levy
and all other Stamp Tax
amendments are already in
force. Mr Smith yesterday said
they came into effect on the
day the 2005-2006 Budget was
tabled in Parliament during the
last week in May.
He explained that amend-
ments such as these were cov-
ered by the Protection of Rev-
enue Act, meaning they took
effect once laid in the House of
Assembly before a parliamen-
tary debate was held. This was
done to prevent affected par-
ties arbitraging and "profiteer-
ing" from the time between
when the amendments were
foreshadowed and when they
were enacted.
The Government has pro-
jected that it will earn an extra
$35.341 million in stamp tax
during fiscal 2005-2006, gener-
ating a total of $219 million
from this tax compared to the
$183.659 earned in 2004-2005.
Mr Smith said the 4 per cent
levy was designed to plug a
loophole exploited by residen-
tial homeowners in the past,
where their homes were owned
by a company created specifi-
cally for that purpose.


FOR


RENT



* 686 4,340 sq.ft. retail & office spaces
* Excellent retail and professional location.

* Modern building with spectacular views.
* Full standby generator.
* Security services.


If the home was sold, it was
done through selling the shares
in the holding company. The
transfer or sale of shares is not
subject to stamp tax, enabling
people to avoid paying this tax.
One source told The Tri-
bune: "People were putting
their homes as owned by com-
panies and selling shares in the
companies. There was no
stamp tax on that transaction
of buying shares. That's what
they're trying to plug."
Mr Smith said: "Prior to the
amendment, a business that
owned land as one of its assets
could avoid paying stamp duty
if it was involved in a merger
with another business."
He added that another
instance of stamp tax evasion
involved a.subsidiary compa-
ny that held land and real
estate among its assets. It its
parent was acquired in a busi-
ness transaction, Mr Smith said
that again no stamp tax would
be paid.
The minister said there was
"an equity element" behind the
4 per cent amendment. Ordi-
nary persons selling assets such


as real estate inevitably left
paper trail through documetil
that would see them pay staip'p
tax, and Mr Smith said the
change was designed to plii
loopholes exploited by c6Omj'ff
nies and wealthy individual.
However, he added thl'f
under the Stamp Tax Act t~h'
minister responsible had the"
power to waive payment fii
specific cases. ;:,tI
He cited the 2002 CIBC/Ba1
clays merger that created Pirf"-~t
Caribbean InternationalfBlilk'
(Bahamas) and ScotiabaiinlW
metamorphosis into 6 s i -
sidiary, which involved the
transfer of a substantial mort-
gage portfolio, as. instan cs
where the paymenti'of staitp
tax had been waived.
The FirstCaribbean Interna-
tional Bank (Bahamas) merger
created $196 million in good-
will when CIBC's operations
were backed into Barclays i~
a reverse merger. Based on the
new 4 per cent levy, had tlAt
been in force then and applied,
some $7.84 million in stamp ta4.
would have been due to the
Government. :n

regulatory framework and further strengthening of human
resources and other domestic supports are also vital to ensuring
that the Bahamas maintains a competitive global edge." 'I4
The Central Bank said the commercial banking sectd.i
and equities were also poised to benefit from modernisanl
tion of the payments system and a deepening of the capitaD
markets.
The report said the international banking sector's aisset
base was "stable" at the end of 2004, standing at almost
.$300.billion, with fiduciary assets under management estfi
mated at $187.5 billion.
The Central Bank said business generated from compa-
ny registration and management, chiefly InternationaF
Business Companies (IBCs), had also rebounded modest-
ly. Some 18,601 IBCs were under management at the eno
of 2004, compared to 15,147 in 2003 and 16,115 in 2002. o
Meanwhile, the number of investment funds domiciled i
the Bahamas increased to 838 in 2004, compared to 721, ifr
2003, with assets under management increasing to $163.4.
billion from $107.4 billion.

Expenditure
The banking sector's total expenditure in the Bahamian
economy rose by 16.5 per cent in 2004 to $463.1 million,'
"outpacing" the five year 1999-2003 average of 3.6 perk
cent.
Banks' total salary outlays rose by $12.6 million or 6.4 per.
cent in 2004 to $209.1 million, recovering from a 3 1 per,
cent decline in 2003. Average annual salary per employee'
also rose by 3.7 per cent to $47,893, just below the 4.7 per.i
cent average increase for 1999-2003.
Average annual pay for Bahamians rose by 3.9 per cent
to 43,760, compared to,a 1.2 per cent rise in 2003, while
expatriate pay grew by 1.9 per cent to $109,620.
The Central Bank report added: "The sector's contribu-
tion to government revenue increased by $2.5 million or 15
per cent to $18.9 million, partly extending a 6 per cent
increase in 2003, and was due to higher outlays for work
permits, real property taxes, stamp duties and licence

investors to the possibilities
available in Grand Bahama.
The Ginn Corporation's
interest in pursuing a real estate
development in both West and
East End Grand Bahama, he
said, ignited a spark of interest
among other developers who
have made subsequent inquiries
to the Government concerning
theFr own involvement in the
island's tourism market.
"Bobby Ginn has been there
with us since we were seeking
opportunities for West End.
We've been at the table dis-
cussing our position to deter-
mine what is in the best interest
of, them and the Bahamas.
We're all at the same level of
anxiety to get things going, not
just for my constituency, but for
Eight Mile Rock and the rest


of Grand Bahama," Mr Wilch-
combe said.
Asked whether he felt par-
ticularly responsible for the out-
come of negotiations with the
Ginn Corporation, both as the
MP for West End, and since he
was largely responsible for
involving the Orlando-based
developer in the project for that
area, Mr Wilchcombe stood by
his fellow Cabinet minister,
Allyson Maynard-Gibson, say-
ing that he knows she is hoping
and wishing for the best possible
outcome.
Mr Wilchcombe said Mrs
Maynard-Gibson's ministry had
determined negotiators who
know the Government's man-
date. In addition, he understood
that sometimes negotiations run
into rough seas.
Turning his attention to the
Royal Oasis, Mr Wilchcombe

Timely tribute to sporting sisters


TWO sisters competing in the
same events at different times
will be honoured this weekend
for the legacy they leave behind
in track and field.
It is a unique situation, but
one that certainly deserves spe-
cial recommendation for Lav-
ern and Beryl Eve.
The siblings are just two of
the talented athletes who have
emerged from the historic set-


tlement of Fox Hill, but neither
have achieved any national
acclaim for their successes.
Beryl Eve may have been the
pacesetter, but Lavern Eve sur-
passed her and set an unprece-
dented mark in competing in
four Olympic Games as a
javelin thrower.
On Sunday their Church,
Macedonia Baptist, will honor
the two outstanding athletes in

MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT

The Government of The Bahamas is seeking bids
from prospective consultant firms to conduct a
review of mailboat operations in The Bahamas.

Prospective firms may obtain the Terms of
Reference in this regard from the Ministry of
Transport and Aviation, East Bay Street, Nassau,
Bahamas.

Bids should be addressed to:

Chairperson
Tenders Board
Ministry of Finance
Cecil Wallace Whitefield Centre
West Bay Street
P.O. Box N-3017
Nassau, The Bahamas

Deadline for submission of bids is Monday 7th
July, 2005 at 5:00 p.m.

Opening of bids will be held on Tuesday 12th July,
2005 at 10:00 a.m. at the Ministry of Finance.

The Terms of Reference are set out below.


TERMS OF REFERENCE
Re: Review of Mail Boat Operations

The Mail Boat service plays an integral part in
networking the islands of The Bahamas. Presently,
there are twenty (20) contracted mail boats
operating out of New Providence and connecting
New Providence with the Family Islands, and one
mail boat operating out of Grand Bahama
connecting Grand Bahama with Grand Cay.

The Government is presently considering the
renewal of the Inter-Insular Mail Boat Contracts
with a view to adjusting mail boat routes and
subsidies. During deliberations in this regard, it
was determined that a review of the mail boat
system is necessary in order to properly guide
Government's decision as to the restructuring of
the service.

Services Sought

The Government is seeking the services of a firm
to review the present mail boat system, including
but not limited to:

1. Existing routes and their relevance.

2. The formula for calculation of subsides. In
this regard, the firm should determine the
assessment tool that may be used in
determining increases in mail boat subsidies.

3. Cost structure faced by mail boat operators.
In this regard, the firm should generate a
report on the operational cost of each mail
boat, including documented frequency of
scheduled places, passenger manifest and
freight lot. These reports should be
independently verified.

4. Economic viability of each route without a
Government subsidy.

In executing its duties, the firm will liaise with the
Ministry of Transport and Aviation and submit
their findings to the Ministries of Transport and
Aviation and The Ministry of Finance. The expected
duration of the project is 6 weeks.


a testimonial lunch at the San-
dals Royal Bahamian Resort
and Spa.
Macedonia Baptist, at the
entrance to Fox Hill, was found-
ed 39 years ago under the lead-
ership of the late Reverend John
L Nixon. For the past 25 years, it
has been pastored by Reverend
Dr David S Johnson, a former
track star in his own right.
The event is being staged
under the patronage of Rev
Johnson and his wife, Selina. A
number of dignitaries are
expected to attend the event,
which will be held in the form of
a toast to the athletes and their
achievements.
Both women have won
numerous medals at the Carifta
Games and the Central Ameri-
can and Caribbean Champi-
onships. But Lavern has gone
a couple of steps past Beryl by
competing at every other level
on the international scene,
including the Pan American,
Commonwealth Games, World
Cup and the Olympic Games.
In fact she along with
retired golden girl Pauline
Davis-Thompson and long
jumper Jackie Edwards is one
of only three Bahamian female
athletes to have participated in


four Olympics. What a remark-
able achievement.
Lavern Eve, currently resid-
ing in Atlanta, Georgia, has
hinted that this may very well
be her last hurray. Who knows
if she will stick around for the
Commonwealth Games next
year, or the Olympics in 2008.
So before she head off the
scene like Beryl did, in a quiet
way, she's getting her flowers
while she can still enjoy them.
Beryl, now living in Houston,
Texas, will also be coming home
for the special event.
I guess, when one look at
their contribution to the sport
over the years, it's only fitting
that they should share the same
stage.
As the pacesetter, Beryl held
the national record before Lav-
ern came along and rewrote it.
Lavern is still the owner of the
national discus and hammer
records, although she doesn't
participate in those events any
more. Her shot putt record was
broken last year by collegian
Aymara Albury.
Additionally, Lavern also
excelled at St Augustine's Col-
lege and on the national level in
basketball, softball, volleyball
and netball. She was a well-

Young golfer's dream of glory


* by KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior sports reporter
WHILE others dream what
profession will best suit them,
Annamae Adderley has already
made her connection.
A 50-yard drive on the range
has been one of Adderley's
biggest dreams, hoping that the
hard hit ball doesn't roll back.
At three years old Adderley
found her love, golf, and thanks
to her dad she has been stroking
ever since.
Although her first swing with
a club did not come until the
age of five, Adderley grew to
call any golf course her home.
The 13-year-old works out
under the watchful eyes of her
father, who was once a caddy
for several Bahamian golfers in
the late 1950s.
She said: "I love to play golf.
Golf has become a big part of
my life. It is a mature game that
has its ups and downs, but I
don't allow the downs to play a
big role in my games.
"I am a lucky golfer, I prac-
tise every Saturday at the Cable
Beach golf course and some-
times with my dad. I won't trade
golf in for any other sport, golf
is my life."
Comparing her skills to the
junior golfers in the United
States, who have the opportu-
nity to play on par three pitch
and putt areas, Adderley says
that watching their game moti-
vates her to train harder.
She is hoping that all her hard
work on and off the courses will
propel her to a number one
world ranking a ranking she


hopes to obtain after complet-
ing her studies in college.
"I am really looking forward
to going to college," said
Adderley. "I don't mind being
the top-ranked golfer in the
world among the females, but I
have to get a college education.
"I want to make the Bahamas
proud, that's my main goal
every time I step on the greens."
Adderley has played in sev-
eral international tournaments.
She has been in the Bahamas
Junior Golf programme from
2000, representing the country
in all junior tournaments.
Adderley has played in Bar-
bados, the Cayman Islands,
North Carolina, Freeport,
Washington, US Virgin Islands,
and has recently been selected
to represent the Bahamas in
Dominican Republic.
In 2003, Adderley won the
Coca Cola Classic AGM, and
placed third in the girls' 12-and-
under golf tournament.
Her success continued in 2004
when she was selected for the
national team. The team won
the silver medal overall.
She added: "Every year I try
to dedicate my trophies and
medals to persons who I think
have played a significant factor
in my development.
Adderley adds the girls' 15
and under first place trophy and
the girl's overall trophy to her
collection. She is dedicating the
girls' 15 and under trophy to
the late Sir Francis Francis and
the overall trophy to Tommy
Goodman. Adderley's father
caddied for both men in the late
1950s.

Anglican


youth get


in-school confirmation


* By JANICE MATHER
Traffic jams and
busy after-school
schedules can
make it hard for
Anglican children
- and their parents to accom-
modate confirmation classes at
their home churches. But in-
school training, a trend that
makes the spiritual preparation
more convenient and accessi-


ble, is becoming a fixture at St
John's College.
Academic
Six boys and six girls, ranging
in age from 11 to 17 years, were
confirmed last Friday as the
school finished out the acade-
mic year.
Father Peter Scott, St John's
chaplain and counselor, says
the idea of offering confirma-


tion classes at school, after
school, was suggested to him
in 2002 by parents who. were
finding it hard to juggle work,
traffic, and extra-curricular
activities with getting their chil-
dren to church-held classes.
Preparation
In 2003, 17 St John's students
were confirmed at the school
after six months of preparation


classes, conveniently held right
at the school.
Benefit
In-school confirmation has
had another benefit an evan-
gelical one.
The Anglican-based church
school has always had weekly
masses and other church
events; now students can grow
together more spiritually, and


perhaps inspire their peers to
do ti.e same.
"It does enhance the worship
of the school, and actually it
draws people to the church,"
sayt Father Scott. "Two of my
candidates were converts, two
weren't Anglicans now
they're Anglicans. It's a form of
evangelism."
Addressing St John's stu-
dents at the confirmation,
Archbishop Drexel Gomez
stressed the importance of grat-
itude, and advised them to
learn from the 10 lepers
cleansed by Jesus, of whom
only one came back to express
thanks.
"In the sacrament of confir-
mation as we practice it in our
tradition, gratitude is at the'
forefront. We come to show
how grateful we are, how we
appreciate what our parents
*and grandparents have done
for us having brought us into
the family of God at our bap-
tism, having made the promis-
es and assisted us in growing
in the knowledge and under-
standing of the Christian faith,
having taught us to worship
and participate in the life of
the church, we show our appre-
ciation by coming at this point
to claim and own all that they
did and to pay God the full
responsibilities of our mem-
bership within the church," said
Archbishop Gomez.
Gratitude
"If it isn't taken on in a spir-
it of gratitude, of appreciation,
then it will be meaningless and
will not assist us in our person-
al growth and development,
and the value that we place on
God, on the church, the value
that we place on all the grace
and help that He provides will
lead us into a sense of appreci-


ation and a spirit of gratitude."
Those being confirmed were
specifically -encouraged to
*maintain their new spiritual
commitment by remaining seri-
ous, sincere and regular in their
religious activities. Archbishop
Gomez encouraged the young-
sters to open their Bibles at
least once a day, and to pray
as often as possible to grow in
knowledge and understanding
of God.
Praying
"We should be praying to
God even more than three.
times a day... praying is about
sharing our life with God,
whether we are home, whether
we are in the car, whether we.
are in the classroom, working
in the office, wherever we are
we have to learn how to share
our life with God, to place
everything before God, to be
open towards God so that God
can bless us . Don't just
mumble couple words you
learned from early childhood,"
said Archbishop Gomez.
"Learn to talk to God, to listen
to Him."
Father Peter Scott, chaplain
and counsellor at the school,
says response from parents to
the aftef-schoolcon firmation
classes has been mostly posi-
tive. He maintains, though, that
while the Anglican school and
the Anglican church belong to
the same family, preparing for
this spiritual step within the
family's home church is still the
best option.
"That's where you grew up,
that's where your spiritual life
is nurtured and where it grows
from baptism, from a baby;"
he points out, "But we provide
the alternative now in cases
where it's hard to get to con-
firmation classes."


ST George's Anglican Church cel-
ebrated fathers and all men in the
parish in a special service on Sunday.
"It's always good to see men serv-
ing God and doing his work here on
earth," commented a female parish-
ioner.


The women of the parish were chal-
lenged to continue to encourage the
men, and were reminded that they are
a vital part of the growth and develop-
ment of the ministry of God. After the
sermon the men came to the altar for a
special blessing.

'Men should always take lead role


as priest in home and lead family


in prayer and devotions daily'


The sermon was delivered by Father
G Kingsley Knowles, rector, who spoke
on the importance of family life.
"Men should always take the lead
role as the priest in the home and lead
the family in prayer and devotions dai-
ly," he said.

'When church groups fight,


only the devil wins'


* By Bishop Simeon B Hall

THE spiritual standard
which the church offers to the
community drops a notch each
time a church group allows
itself to sink to public brawls. It
does not matter who is right or
wrong, each time church
groups fight. The Kingdom of
Hell advances and only the
devil wins.
There are almost 4,000
churches scattered across this
nation. In the last 10 years, four
groups have been involved in
legal and public confrontations,
yet the inability to reach some
level of reconciliation retards
the witness of these churches
and all others.
The history of the Christian
Church shows that sometimes
she has sunk so low that if you


* BISHOP SIMEON HALL

can see her it is by the fire and
blood she has left as she
advanced.
Racism, injustice, bloody cru-
sades and wicked inquisitions
are all woven into the church's


colourful history. Although
Christians are admonished in,
the New Testament not to take
each other to court, some feel,,.
this is the only way to resolve',
conflicts in today's society.
Court cases involving dis-,
agreeing church groups are a:
clear indication that there was
no one willing to go just a little,-
further and manifest the Spirit,.
of Christ.
Obviously the vast majority";
of churches, and even those
whose disagreement reached,
public attention live in harmo-.,
ny. But it is always tragic when.,,
the faithful gives the devil,
ammunition with which to
oppose the Body of Christ.
Bishop Hall is a former',
president of the Bahamas Chris-
tian Council.


Evangelist Ring to preach

'1 NLIKTTT rgyrT^z*-1*t 1^ri *T^I -i-^

FEW individuals have felt
the crushing blows that have
besieged David Ring since
birth. He was born to lose. On
October 28, 1953, in Jonesboro,
Arkansas, David was born with
cerebral palsy. Orphaned at
age 14, he was cast about from
family to family, with nowhere
to call-home. He endured con-
stant physical pain, humiliat-
ing public ridicule and constant
discouragement. Yet in the face
of these seemingly insur-
mountable -Obstacles, David
emerged not victimised...but
victorious! Life was worse than
hopeless for him until his rela-
tionship began with Jesus
Christ who taught him self
respect and an acceptance of
his physical challenges. To
most, physical challenges of this
magnitude would prove to be a
tombstone. For David Ring, his
coming of age was and remains
a milestone.
You've never heard a speak-
er quite like David Ring.
Although difficult to under-
stand at first, you will soon find


yourself captured by his quick
wit and warm personality.
Whether giving a motivational.
message at a sales convention,
or inspiring church leaders,
David always focuses on an
individual's need to conquer
the personal challenges and
adversities of life. As you hear
David Ring, you will
laugh... and cry. You will be
amazed at his triumph over
odds. You will be moved to
consider your own life. As one
who has not been stifled by his
physical limitations, he clearly
states his challenge to every-
one, "I have Cerebral Palsy-
What's Your Problem?"

Featured
As a nationally known
speaker since 1973, David
shares his story with over
100,000 people each year at
churches, conventions, schools
and corporate events. He has
been featured on numerous
occasions on several nationally
televised programmes.


L J"A tLIA5 L

David's book "Just As I
Am", (Moody Press, Chicago,,
IL) tells about his heartaches,
and victories, and addresses the'
central theme of his life: "Tri-
umph Over Odds."
David and his wife Karen,,
make their home in Nashville,',
Tennessee. They are the par-
ents of four children, April,":
Ashley, Nathan and Amy Joy.,
Evangelist Ring will be the:
guest speaker at an Evangelis-
tic Rally Monday and Tuesday
July 18th and 19th at New.
Covenant Baptist Church on.
the East-West Highway.
Bishop Simeon B Hall,
Senior Pastor notes, "In an age
when many have placed per-
sonal salvation and relation-
ship with God on the back
burner and prefer to give
emphasis to the fantastic,
Evangelist Ring's preaches
through his tragedy.
"There are many persons
who face the polemical ques-
tion- what happens when God
does not heal? "I think we are
in for a grand treat."

I It Irg maorsu 9Ir


* By CLEMENT JOHNSON ,,

rchbishop
Lawrence A
Burke is
expected. to
undergo major
surgery today at 2pm at Mercy
Hospital in South Miami.
Archbishop Patrick Pinder
has asked Catholics through-
out the archdiocese to pray for
the beloved archbishop who
served the Bahamian Catholic
community for more than 20
years. Archbishop Burke is suf-
fering from cancer. His name
was mentioned at all weekend
masses in New Providence dur-
ing the Prayers of the Faithful.
Archbishop Burke now
serves as Archbishop'and Met-
ropolitan of the Province of
Kingston, where a chain of
prayers has been organised for
him by the Prayer and Praise
team of the Stella Maris
Roman Catholic Church. The
prayer service will begin at


12.30pm today and last until
the end of the surgery.
Mae Lowe, a good friend of
Archbishop Burke, said that
he was in good spirits. She
asked that he be remembered
in prayers.
It was only a year ago when
the 72-year-old archbishop was
on his way to Rome to receive
his second Pallium from the
late Pope John Paul II, on June
29.

Ordained

Archbishop Burke was
ordained to the priesthood on
June 16, 1964, and appointed
second bishop of Nassau on
July 17, 1981. His Episcopal
Ordination was held in Nassau
on October 11, 1981. He was
appointed First Metropolitan
Archbishop of Nassau on June
22, 1999.
After 23 years of shepherd-
ing the Bahamian Catholic
Church, Archbishop Burke was


installed on May 2, 2004 as
Archbishop of Kingston and
Metropolitan of the Province
of Kingston at an impressive
ceremony at Holy Trinity
Cathedral in Kingston, where
thousands attended.
During his time as bishop of
Nassau, he was hailed as a man
with a vision, mission and pur-
pose. He was credited with the
building of the New St Francis
Xavier Cathedral and leaving
the Bahamas with its first local
archbishop.
When he was appointed
archbishop of Kingston, he said
he had reservations about leav-
ing the Bahamas, but was open
to wherever the Holy Father
saw fit to place him. "I have
been in the Bahamas for over
23 years and it has been a won-
derful grace, and the people
have been wonderful and gen-
erous and I will miss the local
church. I look forward to the
challenges of my new appoint-
ment."


'In pursuit of excellence'


* By REV ANGELA C
BOSFIELD PALACIOUS

AS so many of our students
graduate from various schools
and colleges at this time, we
watch with pride as we realise
that they are indeed poised on
the brink of yesterday and
tomorrow, which is today, their
moment of celebration:
If they take the time to look
back, they will see the parents
and teachers who have cheered.
on the side of the tracks along
with: guardians, granrd-pareits,
god-parents, youth leaders,
guidance counselors, atten-
dance officers, police officers
and ministers of religion. They
may even catch a glimpse of
the people who pray for them
every day by name and for
young people, institutions and
families in general.
Pray

Let us assure them that we
will continue to pray for them,
even as we remind them that
they have to run their own race.


We can only clap and cheer.
This is indeed their life, their
call, and the question they must
ask themselves is: Where do I
go from here?

Career

We often use the term "to
pursue a career". The word
"pursue" suggests to me per-
sistent and expenditure of ener-
gy to make the effort to go
after soma.tiggM,
It is, he 'hi'nter after the
gam,' t1i athlete after the
prize. It is God after a lost
world, sending a Son to die on
a cross for us. In turn, to pursue
God is to want to love God
with all of our heart and soul
and mind and strength. It is to
want to give our utmost for
God's highest glory.
This is why you pursue excel-
lence. The Apostle Paul writes
that we are to want to seek the
more excellent way, the way of
LOVE which is God's way,
because God is Love.
"In Pursuit of Excellence"
was the theme chosen for the


MEDITATION


* REV ANGELA PALACIOUS


recent graduation of twelfth
grade students at C C Sweeting
Senior High School. Excellence
is a lifetime and lifelong goal
that will keep evading us in
some way or another. There is
no time to keep looking down
at what we do not want to be,
or looking back at where we
were, we are now to look for-
ward, upward and onward as
our national motto says:

Choices

To look forward to our
choices in the next few days,
weeks, months and years to
pursue academic, relational,
vocational and spiritual, mind-
ful of the words of a former US


President, Woodrow Wilson,
who is quoted as saying: "you
are not here simply to make a
living.. .you are here to enrich
the world, and you impoverish
yourself if you forget the
errand".

Generation

To look onward to the next
generation and seek to set an
example of excellence for them.
To look upward to God
and allow the Holy Spirit to
pursue excellence in us, by
transforming us into the image
of God from the inside out.
We will never be perfect but
we may pray for God to do an
excellent work through us.

Church introduces annual




'Marriage is Honourable' Day


N DISTINGUISHED COUPLE Senior Pastor Emeritus, Rex Major, congratulates Sir Clement & Lady Zoe Maynard.


n its commitment to hold up mar-
riage on the highest possible
pedestal, Grace Community
Church has instituted an annual
"Marriage is Honourable" Day.
On Sunday, June 26 at 11am, the ninth
annual service of honouring couples whose
marriages have lasted 50 years or more,
will be held.
Since this special memorial has been set
in place, 70 couples have stepped out-pub-
licly to proclaim their joy aid appreciation
for such a blessed marital experience.
All couples who have been honoured
for the past two years are requested to
return as patrons of this service. Since it is
also a moment for the renewal of mar-
riage vows, all married couples, no matter
how long married, are welcome to share in
the service.
The service is conducted in similar fash-
ion to a wedding. The couples are all part
of a processional attended by young cou-
ples of the church following closely behind
them, signifying the fact that they desire to
walk in the footsteps of couples whose
marriages has endured. Standard features
of this service include, "A Time of Reflec-
tion and Renewal", when couples renew
their vows (all married couples in the con-
gregation are asked to join in), and a ded-
ication of marriage by which the congre-
gation makes a solemn promise to uphold
the honourable purpose of marriage.
This is followed by special prayers for
the honorees and their families, and com-
memorative certificates are issued to the
honourees.
Senior Pastor Emeritus, Rex Major, will


present the sermon.
The following distinguished couples
have been honoured during the past eight
services:

bell; Mr Charles & Deaconess Myrtle Cun-
ningham; Deacon Jeremiah & Mrs Genal
