Tons of debris


offloaded in


Bone Fish


National Park


C By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas National
Trust (BNT) has raised the
alarm over what it says is the
largest dumping violation
uncovered in its history.
Officials of the organisation
held a press conference at
Bone Fish National Park yes-
terday to express their con-
eern over the hundreds of tons
*o fdebris, old cars and indus-
trial material polluting the
pond.
Encompassing most of the
b6undaries of the park, hun-
dreds of tons of debris, obvi-
ously offloaded from dump
trucks, have been deposited
in the area, in what BNT offi-
cials feel has been months of
indiscriminate dumping.
At the site was a "brand
new" D8 bulldozer valued
roughly at $700,000, appar-
ently waiting to push the
debris into the marsh.
A squatter near the site told


The Tribune that they had
seen numerous dump trucks
of "various colours" (some red
and white, red and black, and
green and black) dumping in
the park randomly through-
out the week, but predomi-
nately on Saturdays.
"Yeah, it was 11 of them in
here on Saturday and we told
them they couldn't be dump-
ing that stuff here but they
didn't stop," he said.
According to Glen Bannis-
ter the president of the BNT,
these trucks have been
offloading their cargo (includ-
ing old tires, car parts, water
heaters, propane tanks, etc.)
since February.
"We are outraged and dis-
gusted by this illegal and bla-
tant dumping. This is a nutri-
ent-rich area for juvenile fish,
conch and lobsters, and it's up
to the BNT to protect the
parks for our future genera-

A WOMAN struck by a lightning bolt while sitting in a secu-
:rity booth has miraculously survived and is recuperating in
hospital.
In what can be described as a freak incident, the security
-;guard was struck by lightning on Thursday at 9am while work-
ing in a security booth on Old Trail Road.
"It was during the thunderstorm early Thursday morning,
there was heavy rain and lightning and the woman was struck by
.a lightning bolt in one of her legs," said press liaison officer
Inspector Walter Evans.
The woman, whose identity was not released, was immedi-
ately rushed to Princess Margaret Hospital where she is still
-.being treated for her injuries. Her condition is described as
non-life threatening. She was able to survive because the light-
.ning strike was not a direct hit.
Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, Chief Meteorology
Officer Basil Dean said that although it is rare for people to be
hit by lightning in the Bahamas the last lightning-related
death occurred more than a decade ago there are some pre-
cautions a person should take.
"We are now in the rainy season and because of the moisture
in the air and our high temperatures we will see thunder-
storms," he said.
Mr Dean said that often being struck by lightning can prove
to be fatal for the victim.
Statistics show that 74 per cent of the survivors sustain per-
manent injuries. Lightning can affect all organ systems,- espe-
cially the cardiovascular system. Central nervous system injuries
Sand burns are also common, and paralysis and amnesia are
likely.

Prison officers

'still working in

harsh conditions'


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas Prison
Officers Association is. still
crying out for relief from the
harsh and unsanitary work-
ing conditions at Her
Majesty's Prison.
President of the associa-
tion, Corporal Clive Rolle
said that after 14 months in
office he is deeply saddened
to report that prison officers
at Fox Hill are in the same
position now as they were
then.
Unsanitary
"Prison officers still work
in harsh and unsanitary con-
ditions. There are no bath-
room facilities in the maxi-
mum security prison that is
appropriate for officers, vis-
itors and other staff mem-
bers to utilise.
"Secondly, there is no run-
ning water to wash your
hands or flush the toilets
after use and they are in a
very dilapidated state," said
Mr Rolle.
The association also point-
ed out that there are a num-
ber of outstanding issues
still waiting to be addressed,
including the contractual


agreement between the gov-
ernment and the Public Ser-
vice Union. There is also an
outstanding matter with a
recruitment entry that was
enlisted in 2000 and who still
has not received back pay,
said Mr Rolle.
Reform
He said there is much talk
about prison reform and
government officials have
visited the prison to either
tour the facility, open new
buildings and dedicate or
re-dedicate various
facilities.
He wants to know how
can officers help in the trans-
formation when they live
and work under such poor
conditions.
"Everyday an officer
reports for duty there is no
certainty that any of us will
return home to our families.
At any given time random
checks and search of inmates
can result in startling finds
of homemade weapons that
can be used on anyone.
Prison officers are constant-
ly out numbered," said Mr
Rolle.
He stressed that prison
officers are tired of the talk
and need answers.


Symonette leadership

decision 'by early August'
R By DINA TSERETOPOULOS
MONTAGU MP Brent Symonette told The Tribune yester-
day that he will let the public know by early August if he
intends to run for FNM leader.
While admitting that he was considering running for the
post, he made it clear that he is still very undecided.
If he does decide to contend for party leadership, Mr Symon-
ette will face Dion Foulkes and present leader Tommy Turn-
quest.
If public speculation holds true, he might also meet former
prime minister Hubert Ingraham and former cabinet minister
Algernon Allen in the ring.


Sidney Stubbs hits

out at Turnquest


* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
ANSWERING allegations
that he was facilitating the entry
of large numbers of Chinese
"immigrants" into the Bahamas
through Cuba, Holy Cross MP
Sidney Stubbs slammed FNM
leader Senator Tommy Turn-
quest for using his name "every
time he wants to cause contro-
versy".
In an interview with The Tri-
bune yesterday, Mr Stubbs
described the FNM leader's
comments in the Senate as
"mischievous" and "disingenu-
ous".
Mr Turnquest made the
assertion during his contribu-
tion to the budget debate on
Wednesday.
The FNM senator said that.


he was told by immigration offi-
cers that Sidney Stubbs and the
government are "facilitating
large numbers of Chinese to
enter the Bahamas through
Cuba".
However, Mr Stubbs said that
this was simply not the case.
"That is absolutely not true.
The Chinese nationals which I
welcome at the airport from
time to time are business part-
ners of my company. They are
the same investors my company
has been working with for the
past four years," he said.
Mr Stubbs said there are nev-
er "large numbers" (of Chinese
nationals), as alleged by Mr
Turnquest.
"At the most, it's a group of
three to five people.

Group of squatters discovered by





environmental health officials


* By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

A GROUP of squatters was discov-
ered yesterday by officials from the
Department of Environmental Health
during their tour of one of the four
national parks on New Providence.
During a walk-through of Bonefish
Pond off Cowpen Road, six homes could
be seen throughout the mangroves and
palm trees.
Some of the structures were wooden
with tin roofing, while others seemed
more "professionally built", with con-
crete walls and shingled roofs.

Property
Glen Bannister, the president of the
Bahamas National Trust, said that
although it is not known if the residents
are illegal immigrants or Bahamian, the
fact remains that they are still squatting
on the Trust's property illegally.
"We are dealing with this matter now,
trying to get them off. One of our park
wardens was dealing with the matter
through the legal system but we have
no idea of the nationality of the resi-
dents.
"But what we do know is that they


are in the park's boundaries and we need
them removed. Further along the west-
ernmboundaries there are even more per-
sons building. We have seen people up
there laying down foundations in the
park itself and we have no idea who told
them they were allowed to do so," he
said.

Mr Bannister said that the Trust
solicited the aid of a park warden from
Grand Bahama to police the area, who
they hope will be in Nassau within a
month.
"Also we are going to start to put up
signs around the park letting.them know
that they are squatting on the national
park and that we expect them to vacate,"
he said.
The Minister of Labour and Immigra-
tion Vincent Peet said that he will have
his enforcement unit check into the mat-
ter, to see if the squatters are in the coun-
try legally or not.
"The Immigration Department will
do its part to get rid of illegal immigrants '
where ever they find them. ME of the stratires were weiet ,
This is a sustained effort to rid the
Bahamas of all illegal immigrants, and it ir ally bui wh concrete wal
is an endeavor that we will not wavier and shingled ro I-
from," he said.

Former cabinet minister slams


effort to 'impugn the character' of


citizens by using House privileges


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT Former FNM
cabinet minister Zhivargo Laing
on Friday condemned the efforts
of government ministers to
"impugn the character" of
Bahamian citizens by using the
privileges of the House of
Assembly.
Mr Laing said he took grave
exception to references made
Wednesday in.parliament by
Tourism Minister Obie Wilch-
combe regarding the apparent
disappearance of $20,000 under
the FNM watch.
Although Mr Wilchcombe did
not identify anyone by name, Mr
Laing, who served as the minis-
ter of youth, sports and culture
at the time, felt that the minis-
ter's reference to the incident
was meant to attack his charac-
ter.

Condemn
"I believe that all right-think-
ing Bahamians ought to con-
demn, and condemn in the
strongest fashion, any effort on
the part of government minis-
ters or any member of the
House of Assembly to use the
privileged precinct of the House
of Assembly. to impugn, or to
attempt to impugn the charac-
ter of citizens in this country
who do not reside in the House
of Assembly," he said.
With the support of his FNM
colleagues, MPs Neko Grant and
Lindy Russell, Mr Laing sought
to clarify the matter to which Mr
Wilchcombe referred.
"I wanted to clarify the matter
because I thought what the min-


Zhivargo Laing speaks out


ister did was distasteful, even if
he did not have the courage him-
self to call anyone's name. And
he did it in the House of Assem-
bly, where he has a privileged
perch to do so," said Mr
Laing.
"By his reference, he pointed
to the fact that the minister
responsible at the time was
someone who had retreated to
Grand Bahama, and who was
trying to revive his political
career from Grand Bahama.
"As someone who served as
the minister of youth, sports, and
culture, who relocated to Grand
Bahama, clearly I could have
been one of the persons to
whom he is referring. And the
fact of the matter is that The Tri-
bune itself attributed this inci-
dent as something that happened
under my tenure they called
my name expressly."
Mr Laing explained that the
circumstances under which mon-
ey went missing occurred in
either 1998 or 1999 involving a
relative of his who was
employed at the ministry.
He said he was informed by
his permanent secretary that the
ministry suspected that the rela-
tive had forged two cheques
totaling $16,000 that were drawn
on junkanoo accounts.
Mr Laing said he directed the
permanent secretary to refer the
matter to the police, who con-
ducted an investigation.
The issue was taken to court
and is now a matter of court
records, he said.

According to Mr Laing, the
relative had worked with the
youth department as a volunteer
prior to his appointment as
youth minister.
"After I became minister the
director of the youth department
expressed the interest in employ-
ing him in the ministry. At which
point, I!provided a memo declar-
ing my relationship with this per-
son and indicated I had no inter-
est in his employment one way
or the other, and if they sought
to pursue his employment it was
a matter for them," he said.
In support of Mr Laing, Mr
Grant said it was "despicable"
of Mr Wilchcombe to have
sunken "into the gutter" by
making such reference in House.

Heated
During a heated sitting of the
House on Wednesday, Mr Grant
said the minister of youth, sports
and culture Neville Wisdom,
rather than apologising to the
public on behalf of the opposi-
tion for walking out of House,
should apologise "for wasting
over $1 million" on Junkanoo
bleachers in 2002 along with a
host of other things.
Mr Wilchcombe then inter-
jected making reference to lost
money under the FNM's watch
and saying that he knew the cir-
cumstances under which the
money went missing.
Mr Laing said it appears that
Minister Wilchcombe and his
colleagues.are under tremen-
dous pressure from the
public for their non-perfor-
mance.
"I believe that every time the
opposition is able to hold their
feet to the fire in respect of their
non-performance, they feel the
need to come out in whatever
way possible to try to redeem
themselves.
"And, unfortunately they
chose this kind of method to do
so and I think it is most unbe-
coming and they ought to be
condemned for it," he said.

Ron Pinder blames exposed




graves on poor workmanship


* By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
POOR workmanship is to
blame for several graves at the
Southern Cemetery caving in,
according to Ministry of
Health Parliamentary Secre-
tary Ron Pinder.
He visited the cemetery yes-
terday, and said it is "embar-
rassing" and "vexing" that
human remains could be
exposed.in such a manner.
"Having the graves of dear-
ly departed loved ones dis-
turbed can create psychologi-
cal issues," he said, adding that
health issues also arise from
this "urgent problem".

Caskets
A press briefing was held
yesterday at the spot where
about six caskets sat exposed
in their graves with debris in
and around them.
Joining Mr Pinder was
Wendall G Dean II; president
of the United Funeral Direc-
tors Association, who called


MINISTRY of
Health Parliamentary
Secretary Ron Pinder.
for higher standards, more
stringent regulations, and
updated legislation for morti-
cians.
He said it is the responsi-
bility of funeral homes to con-
struct graves, and that some
who were given such contracts
have obviously cut corners.


Mr Pinder added that a
local company has the con-
tract for maintaining
Southern Cemetery, while
inspectors from the Ministry
of Works are responsible
for performing routine checks
on the condition of the
site.
"That clearly has not hap-
pened," he said.
"This is a problem that the
government must take the
lead in resolving.

Notified
"The Minister has been
notified, and a general meet-
ing is being planned between
the relevant government
agencies along with stake
holders such as the Morticians
Association."
Mr Pinder said that while
the problem is an age-old one,
this is the first time several
graves have collapsed in such
short period of time.
At the site of the press brief-
ing, an entire line of graves
had caved in.

Man stabbed in chest


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
POLICE are investigating
a stabbing incident in which
a 20-year-old man sustained
an injury to his chest.
Shortly after 1pm on
Thursday, the Flamingo
Gardens resident was
stabbed in the chest when a
verbal exchange heated up.
Press Liaison officer
Inspector Walter Evans told
The Tribune that the man
became involved in a ver-
bal exchange with two other
men in the area of Hidden
Treasures, Carmichael
Road, and was stabbed to
his upper chest area when
the situation escalated.

Wounds
His wounds proved to be
non-life threatening and he
was released from hospital
immediately after treat-
ment, Mr Evans said.
Investigations are also
underway into an armed
robbery, which took place
after 1pm on Thursday on
Collins Avenue.
A 21-year-old man of
Malcolm Allotment was
walking near a popular


eatery when he was held up
by two men, one armed with
a knife.
According to reports, the
perpetrator wielding the
knife was dressed in a "red
outfit" at the time of the
robbery, and the other was


wearing a white T-shirt and
holding a screwdriver.
The men robbed the vic-
tim of cash and personal
belongings before fleeing on
foot in an south-west
direction on Collins
Avenue.

Mr Pinder said it is dis-

Mr Pinder said that after an

Outgoing BUT



president disputes



audit allegations


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
OUTGOING president of the Bahamas Union.
of Teachers (BUT) Kingsley Black disputed alle-
gations that four years of the unions audits are
outstanding.
In a press conference yesterday, Mr Black refut-
ed claims made by newly elected BUT president
Ida Poitier-Turnquest that the union has not been
audited for four years.
He said that only one year is out-
standing.
"The facts are that the current audit for the
2004 fiscal year is being prepared by Gomez and
Partners for presentation at the 58th AGM (annu-
al general meeting).
"The 2003 audit was presented in draft form at
the 57th AGM last July because it was not com-
pleted," said Mr Black.
He further explained: "Our auditors have
assured us that the completed audit for 2003 will be
presented at the 58th AGM. There are no other
audits outstanding at this time and this is an easi-
ly verifiable fact."
Clearing the air about other disputes within the
union, Mr Black explained why the executive com-
mittee suspended both Mrs Poitier-Turnquest and
secretary general-elect Belinda Wilson, in Octo-
ber last year.
He said that Mrs Poitier-Tumquest's literature
and stories in the press claim the two were sus-


pended for petitioning to have an increase in dues
rescinded.
However, Mr Black said, letters sent to Mrs
Poitier-Turnquest and Mrs Wilson informed them
of the "real" reasons for their suspension.
Mr Black claimed the following quote was con-
tained in a letter sent to both women:
"Without lawful authority your attempted to
influence the leadership of the Caribbean Union of
Teachers (CUT) to cancel the BUT's hosting of its
32nd biennial conference in Nassau, August 1 to 5,
2005. You have shown blatant disrespect for the
authority of the executive committee in many
ways."

Elections
Meanwhile, the current executive committee of
the BUT confirmed the official results of the
unions elections, and publicly congratulated Mrs
Poitier-Turnquest and the new executive officers.
Mr Black said for the remainder of his term,
he expects "the co-operation of the president-
elect and her team to address transition issues in a
sober and mature manner to maintain the integri-
ty of the great BUT.
"We wish the incoming executive officers all
the best as they prepare to take on the mantle of
leadership," he said.
He said it is hoped that the new leadership will
not allow "organisational politics" to interfere
with the obligation of the BUT.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
MY name is Adam Brown
and I am a graduate of PAD
University the University of
Pain, A'iguish and Despair. It is
through pain that one comes to
learn things about life and ulti-
mate reality which sheltered
individuals may never even
begin to grasp. I don't really
know why I am writing this now
other than the fact that I feel
led to it at this moment. I also
don't know whether this will be,
an ongoing thing for me, but I
guess pending the success of
this article, we will all see.
Initially, I jotted down some-
thing entirely different than I
am now writing, so I will just
go with the spirit and see where
it leads me.
What is reality? What is san-
ity? What is love? What is
truth? Who is God and how do
we come to know each or any
of these things? You see, in an
insane world, it is the sane few
who are scolded for their 'luna-
cy'. As such, wisdom is but a
curse; a curse inflicted upon
those who earnestly seek to
unravel the truth behind the
gaudy curtain which masks
ultimate reality.
We live in a world where
people are too glad to simply
settle and to accept whatever
has been placed in front of
them. We live in a world where
knowing the truth is not as
important as keeping order in
our comfortable lives; where
people do not want to pull back
the curtain to see what lies
behind it, but rather, are satis-
fied by simply looking at the
intricate designs on the fabric of
the curtain itself. We live in a
world of bottom feeders who
would much rather stay in their
comfort zone and settle for less
rather than to reach beyond the
stars and end up on the moon
or somewhere much further.
This frustrates me.
We live in a world where
people just want a quick fix for
everything and are unwilling to
take a look at the bigger pic-
ture. We live in a world where
people are ultimately selfish,
lack all commitment and 'stick-
ability'; where when the going
gets tough, they are gone! We
live in a world where people
are unwilling to make the sac-
rifices necessary in order that
everyone benefits greatly as
opposed to one person sacrific-
ing nothing, benefiting a little
and everyone else losing a
whole lot.
We live in a world where
people only see things from
their point of view and are
unwilling to consider the feel-


ings or alternate viewpoints of
others. The world is a huge
place and the universe is infi-
nite, yet we have two eyes
which can only see things right
in front of us and within a very
narrow field of wavelengths,
two ears which operate within a
very limited frequency, and oth-
er physical senses which are so
blatantly limited that it is point-
less to even mention. How
bizarre is it that we believe that
in this vast universe, this tiny
perception of reality that we
have, is the only one and is nec-
essarily the correct one; that
there could not possibly be
another way of seeing the same
thing? Such hubris!
We live in a world where
people are fakes; where people
fear revealing who they really
are to others and as such, when
the bright rays of truth can no
longer be hidden, people get
hurt; families get ruined; pain is
rampant and suffering seems to
be all there is.
We live in a world where
people no longer value such
things as meditation, quiet time
alone with one's thoughts, self
introspection, etc. We live in a
world where people hurry and
rush through life so fast that
they miss living itself; a wrld
where people do not Bb w
what they want simply because
they do not even know who
they are. But if one does*not
know who one is, how can one
know who or what one wants?
And if one does not know what,
one wants, how will one know if
or when one actually gets it or
even if the person already has
it? In the process, people get
used and hurt; human lives
become adversely affected.
Like a pair of shoes, they see it
in the window, they purchase
it, take it home, wear it a few
times and the next thing you
know, they .decide they didn't
really want it and they either
take it back to the store or put
it in the back of their shoe clos-
et, only to pick it up, mash it
down and use it again whenev-
er they get totally bored with
everything else in their closet.
When I see this, this frustrates
me.
We live in a world where log-
ic, structure and predictability
are the order of the day; every
day. There is no place for
insight, for intuition, for divine
knowledge, for faith or even for
God Himself. We live in a
world where people waste away
their lives and throw away any
chance of greater success and
happiness by trying to cling
tightly to such things as pride,
doubt and fear, as opposed to
humility, faith and courage.
How funny is it that so few
realise that this triad of pride,
doubt and fear, form the very
impetus to the impotence of
their own success and ultimate
happiness? How sickening is it
that so many people go to


church every Sunday, read their
bibles, pray every day, claim
they believe in God, yet get
hung iip on technical issues in
the bible without looking at the
spirit of the message itself, and
more importantly, do not walk
in faith? How can one please
God or truly come to know
God if one does not have and
walk in faith? How upsetting is
it that almost everyone wants to
see everything first, or wants to
know how everything will play
out before ever making that
first step of faith; that like
Thomas, one must not only see
the wounds, but must feel them
as well? Why must we always
know what is coming next
before we take the first step?
Why can't we just develop and
harness the power of our divine
intuition and instead of physi-
cally seeing, intuitively feel our
way through reality? Animals
rely on this sixth sense for sur-
vival, so why don't we harness
the powers that God has
entrusted upon each and every
one of us? Why are we so
addicted to this thing called log-
ic and predictability? It is most
evident that safety...or rather,
the illusion of safety, through
predictability, truly is the opiate
of the masses.
Oftentimes, I wonder if I was
afflicted with the Cassandra
Curse. I speak of what is and
what is to be, but nobody ever
takes heed. In the end, I am left
alone with what I know and
everyone suffers when it comes
to pass; my life is one often mis-
understood and filled with lots
of suffering. I only hope that
some da ; some day soon, peo-
ple wi egin to open their
eyes; t e what I see. I hope
that so e day, people will
begin to see all the potential
there is in this universe; that
people will connect with their
source, be guided by their intu-
ition, learn to stop settling for
less, giving up so easily at the
first sign of difficulty or dis-
comfort, and will eventually
aim higher and achieve more! I
yearn for the day when people
are less selfish and self-centred
and will learn that the more you
give, the more you get back,,
and that when you make the
right sacrifices from the heart,
expecting no acknowledgment
in return or without even letting
others know of your sacrifices,
you will be rewarded many
times over. I long for the day
when people will.learn these
lessons on how to live and will
ultimately learn to live in faith
and free themselves from the
binding chains of logic, fear,
doubt, pride and the need for
predictability; that they will find
their comfort in the bosom of
God rather than in numbers
and logical probabilities. I long
for the day when people learn
how to love; how to truly love!
I long for the day when I no
longer,have to long for such
days.

Tribune Staff Reporter
A LOCAL pastor and his wife
who were accused of making
"dangerous" statements about
homosexual lifestyles yesterday
refused to withdraw remarks
made on a talk show.
They both maintained that the
gay and lesbian orientation is
"caused by perversion".
The husband and wife team
of Edison and Mattie Nottage
are co-pastors of Believ&fFaith
Outreach Ministries on
Carmichael Road. '
In a front page article of The

for remarks which asftion

comments had "a negative
impact on gay youth and left
them without support."
However, Mr Nottage told
The Tribune that he and his wife
"intend to stand by the com-
ments" they both made on
ZNS's Immediate Response talk
show on Tuesday, "and do not
wish to get into any words with
the Rainbow Alliance."
"Our fight is to try to help the
young people, those that have
come to us, especially in situa-
tions where they are being
forcainto things and driven to
be a part of practices they do
not wish to be a part of," said
Mr l'&ttage.
Helen Klonaris, a spokesper-
son for the Alliance said yester-
day that while she agrees with
many of the issues raised by the


couple concerning child abuse,
she considers their outlook on
homosexuality "dangerous."
"I agree on many things they
said, and I agree with their keen
objective to deal with issues of
sexual abuse; I even wrote a play
about sexual abuse.
"But to make people believe
that homosexuality is an illness
and that sexual abase is the
cause of it is very dangerous,"
said Ms Klonaris.
She claimed that the pastors'
actions add to the confusion of
young homosexual people about
what they are really going
through.
For many youths, Ms Klonaris
said, "homosexuality is
inborn and is not really a
choice," as some may choose to
believe.

OPPOSITION leader Senator Tommy Turnquest claimed
that a number of potential investors have become fed up
and either walked away from investment proposals or threat-
ened to do so because the government has been slow in
granting approvals.
Mr Turnquest made the comments during his contribution
to the budget debate in the Senate on Wednesday.
According to Mr Turnquest, the disgruntled investors
include: The Ginn development in Grand Bahama, the Gold
Rock Creek Film Studio, the Harcourt development, the
LNG proposals, Florida Power and Light and the Stranger's
Cay project in Abaco.In the last case, Mr Turnquest said,
"the local representative claimed that an application had
been submitted over 17 months ago and they were still await-
ing a decision.
"I understand that the files are piled high and getting a deci-
sion from the National Economic Council is like pulling
teeth," he said.
Mr Turnquest cautioned government about the kind of
signal such indecisiveness sends to the investment communi-
ty.
He also reiterated the opposition's call for the full and
complete heads of agreement for the Cable Beach re-devel-
opment deal to be released.
According to Mr Turnquest, the developers of the project
are to be granted "a freebie" in terms of casino tax.
He said the heads of agreement states that "all fees cur-
rently being accrued in favour of the Hotel Corporation of the
Bahamas (HCB) relating to the Crystal Palace Casino shall
cease upon Baha Mar taking freehold title to the Crystal
Palace Casino until the date of the opening of the new casino."
Mr Turnquest said this means that no fees would be col-
lected from May 4, 2005 to after the new casino completion
date, which is after 2007. "What is happening in the mean-
time?" he asked.

Senator calls for

proper straw market

* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
SENATOR Tanya McCartney urged the gov-
ernment to build a proper straw market, claiming
that a failure to address the issue could have grave
implications for the tourism industry.
Ms McCartney made her contribution to the
2005/2006 budget debate in the Senate on Thurs-
day saying that a wonderful tourism product is
under siege.
"I implore the Minister of Trade and Industry to
give a clear, concise and definitive statement, spec-
ifying a timeline for when the straw vendors will be
housed in their permanent home.
"I am not asking when the plans will be ready,
I am not asking when the plans are going to be
approved, I want to krinbw when a real ic time
frame as to when the straw vendors willet some
help and hope.
Ms McCartney said that in the 2004/2005 budget
$3.5 million was allocated for the construction of
a new market, which was never built. Again in
the 2005/2006 a further $3.5 million has been allo-
cated.
"What will happen to this money," she won-
dered.
Ms McCartney also said that crime is continuing
to plague the nation. She said she agreed with
Senator Rev CB Moss when he said that people
have lost confidence in the justice system. She
said the PLP's performance on crime leaves much
to be desired.
Ms McCartney also said the Urban
Renewal Programme needs further funding and
expansion.

Reports detail discovery of eight-year-old


NEW details have been released in the case
of an eight-year-old girl who was allegedly
raped and tossed in a trash bin by a Bahamian
in Florida.
According to official documents released
Thursday, the girl was near death as officers
pulled her out from under chunks of concrete
weighing 72 pounds.

Charges
It was reported by the Associated Press that
the 17-year-old Bahamian faces adult charges
of attempted first-degree murder, sexual bat-
tery, kidnapping and other counts in connec-
tion with his alleged attack on the girl.
He is being held without bail and faces up to
life in prison if convicted.


Police discovered the Delray Beach girl in
the trash bin at a Lake Worth landfill on May
22 about seven hours after she was reported
missing from her godmother's home.
She was found partially clothed, with what
appeared to be the impression of a foot on
her back, according to the reports.
According to the AP, the girl did not ini-
tially respond when an officer who spotted
her hand and foot in the rubble began yelling
and shaking the bin.
She began wiggling her fingers.after anoth-
er officer arrived.
"Basically her body was preparing to die
and began shutting down," Dr Philip Colaizzo,
medical director of the Child Protection
Team of Palm Beach, said in one of the
reports.

Call for further development

THE need for further devel-

While praising the Christie
administration as a government

sivism, Senators T Ricardo

Mr Whylly said that the gov-

of the curriculum in our schools

children are able to compete
academically on a global scale".
"The WTO and FTAA are

ahead," he said.

Stamp Tax Act'will





plug some loopholes'


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE newly amended Stamp Tax Act
will plug some long-standing loopholes in
the Bahamas' revenue collection system,
Senator Michelle Pindling-Sands said dur-
ing the Senate's 2005/2006 budget debate.
The Bill for an Act to Amend the Stamp
Tax Act to facilitate a more efficient col-
lection of stamp duty is "an illustration as
one of the measures the government is
taking on existing rates of stamp duty on
transactions which I dare say may have
lined the pockets of colleagues in the legal
profession, but has left the public purse
wanting," she said.
Addressing the Senate on Thursday,
Mrs Pindling-Sands explained that the
main objective of the Stamp Amendment
Bill, which was tabled in the House of
Assembly on May 25, is to treat certain
commercial activities in the same manner
as the sale of land, and to collect stamp
duty on these transactions accordingly.
"There are many types of business trarn-
actions, commercial ventures, which take
place in our country on almost a daily
basis from which the government derives
no revenue," Senator Pindling-Sands said.
Touching on some of the details of the
amended Bill, she pointed out that before
May 25, 2005, when a business was sold,
stamp duty would only be paid if that busi-
ness also owned real estate.


Senator Michelle Pindling-Sands

speaks during budget debate


"As you would appreciate, most busi-
nesses have more assets than just real
estate, however on the sale of that business
stamp duty was paid only on the value of
the underlying real estate, nothing being
paid on other assets," she explained.

Business
Senator Pindling-Sands said that the
amended Bill now makes "every transac-
tion comprising the sale of business insofar
as, such sale may involve the transfer of
any property otherthan land except for
cash or monies on deposit in any bank -
chargeable for stamp duty at the rate of
four per cent."
She said the Bill states that company
mergers are also chargeable for stamp
duty, which was previously not the case.
The Stamp Amendment Bill has further
effectively closed the loophole as it relates
to construction contracts, which are linked
to purchases of real estate, she said.
The senator explained that the practice
of selling a parcel of land and simultane-


ously entering into a second contract to
build a home on that same property, as
currently often practiced in the Bahamas,
is a transaction "specifically set up to avoid
payment of stamp duty."

Price
"The seller and purchaser on entering
into the agreement f6r the sale of land,
know full well at the time, if not before
that, the seller would also for a price build
a house on that parcel of land for the pur-
chaser.
"But the trick was to enter into two sep-
arate contracts specifically to avoid the
payment of stamp duty," she said.!
The Stamp Amendment Bill, she said,.
now states that "the contract for the sale of
land and the construction contract shall
together constitute a single transaction
and stamp duty shall be chargeable based
on the consideration for the contract of
the dwelling, house or other structure, at
the rate applicable to the transfer of the
realty."


cation at the College of the
Bahamas (COB) and the
Bahamas Technical and Voca-
tional Institute (BTVI).
"BTVI needs to expand in
the areas that need to be devel-
oped to meet job requirements
in the Bahamas", she said.
"It is time for transformation
that must transform our tech-
nical institute where Bahami-
ans can go to develop their skills
and be properly trained in tech-
nical education, as Bahamians
deserve the best opportunities
to succeed".
Entrepreneurship was anoth-
er key issue discussed during
the debate.
"I am happy to see that
Bahamians are showing inter-
est in the venture capital fund


that will give Bahamians the
opportunity to bring their busi-
ness plans to fruition," Ms
Turnquest said.

Opportunities
Mr Whylly said that the
"future lies in creating oppor-
tunities for entrepreneurs to
thrive in this country" and to
"partake in the economic boom
which has begun to sweep this
nation".
Ms Turnquest stressed the
fact that Bahamians "have a
part to play in creating a first
class, highly skilled workforce
as the economy develops".
Sharing this view, Mr Whylly
called for the "tooling and
retraining of the public service".


DEPUTY leader for the FNM Sidney Collie told The Tribune
that he would "absolutely" be running for his current position
in the next election.
Mr Collie is one of only a few FNM politicians able announce
his political intentions at this time.
Former deputy leader Dion Foulkes announced his intention
to run for the position of party leader this week, while Montagu
MP Brent Symonette said yesterday that he will make his deci-
sion about a leadership run by early August.
Both Carl Bethel, the current party chairman, and Zhivargo
Laing, the former minister of economic development, said they
are still unsure about their future plans.
Other FNM's that have been mentioned as possible leadership
contenders are former cabinet minister Algernon Allen and for-
mer prime minister Hubert Ingraham.
However, when contacted for a statement, Mr Ingraham
declined to comment and Mr Allen could not be reached.

Drowning prompts concern


over unguarded public beaches


Choir to

celebrate
* By KRISTINA McNEIL
THE National Children's Choir will
be celebrating its 15th year with the
annual grand concert and internation-
al tour in July.
The concert, which was originally
scheduled for June 26 at the National
Centre for the Performing Arts, has
been rescheduled for July 17 at 5pm at
the Centre.
Tickets dated June 26 will be accept-
ed and all proceeds from the concert
will go towards travel expenses for the
choir's upcoming international tour.
This year the choir, under the direc-
tion of sisters Audrey Wright and Patri-
cia Bazard, will attend the PanaFest, a
pan-African arts and culture festival
held every two years in Ghana, Africa.
Last year the international tour took
the choir to Russia.


ably never been put forth to the
government, but it is something
that should be considered.
"The problem is whether or not
the country has the resources to
implement such a programme.
The budget may not be able to
accommodate it," said Mr Symon-
ette.
In the private sector, hotels
such as Atlantis have their own
lifeguard systems. On public
beaches people swim at their own
risk.
Having lifeguards 'on public
beaches is "a public policy issue, a
question that should be put to the
government," agreed Hulan Han-
nah, Chief Superintendent of
Police.
"The police just enforce the law
once legislation has been put in
place," he pointed out.


IN AN effort to improve the technology of their fleet
of tug-boats, the Freeport Tug and Towing Services
Limited (FTTS) has a new "state of the art" vessel on the
way.
FTTS said that this "exciting addition" will be the
first newly built tug-boat to ever operate in the Harbour,
and is an especially important addition to the fleet as it
features the Azimuthing Stern Drive (ASD) system.
Thrust
According to the vice president of marine operations
for Hawaiian Tug and Barge, Mark Houghton, ASD
vessels boast propellers in the stern that are "encased in
nozzles that create a powerful thrust, which can be rotat-
ed 360 degrees. This allows the tug to move forward
and astern and side-to-side with ease."
This feature results in an increase in both the power
and maneuverability of the boat, and will allow it to
pull a minimum of 45 tonnes.
The new- tug is expected to arrive in *Freeport.some-

time in the new year, but until then, the FTTS will bring
in a temporary powerful tug at the South Riding
Point."The decision to acquire the new tug was made in
partnership with the Harbour Company. As a result,
the perfect tug for Freeport harbour operations was
selected," said Randy Robb of the Freeport Harbour
Company.
In addition to these technological improvements, FTTS
is developing fire-fighting capabilities for the Harbour,
which Mr Robb feels is demonstrative of FTTS's "com-
mitment to providing the best possible service to
Freeport HIarbour and its customers."


FOLLOWING the drowning
death of a man out swimming with
his family at Montagu Beach last
week, members of the public
have raised concerns over
unguarded public beaches.
Jason Darling, 43, drowned
while swimming at Montagu, and
in reaction to the reports of his
death, concerned citizens called
in to The Tribune to say they won-
der why the government has nev-
er put a beach safety patrol in
place.
In the past, there was a beach,
warden systeni in place on some
beaches, but this was more for
security than anything else, said
MP for the area Brent Symonette.
When asked why are there no
lifeguards on public beaches
today, Mr Symonette said:

Our goal is to go to court and
have the pond cleaned up and
prosecute those responsible to
the fullest extent of the law.
Normally that D8 would be
confiscated, as it is on BNT's
property, and held in a com-
pound somewhere.
"I believe if we do that we'd
find out for sure who is
responsible for this dumping
because they'd come running
to get that piece of machinery
back. This is in violation of
our national pride and we can-
not rest until this matter is
resolved and this pond is


restored to its natural beau-
ty," he said.
A team from the Depart-
ment of Environmental
Health has also surveyed the
site, along with the depart-
.ment's director Ron Pinder.
They wanted to see first hand
what was described as "the
most outrageous dumping in
the BNT's history".
"Situations like this unfor-
tunately are becoming too
common place in the
Bahamas," said Mr Pinder,
"and clearly this operation has
been in action for a couple of


months.
"The challenge with
addressing issues like this is
enforcement, in having per-
sons mobilised, and I think the
time has come for a full time
park warden to police areas
such as our community parks.
There are residents living in
and around this area and we
hope that they would get more
involved by alerting the rele-
vant authorities when some-
thing like this is happening."
Mr Pinder highlighted that
the cost of cleaning up the
park would be "enormous",

* HAVANA
CUBA increased the salaries of its teachers, doctors and
nurses Thursday, highlighting the importance the nation's com-
munist government puts on its health and education sectors,
according to Associated Press.
Workers in these fields will receive an average of 40 to 50-
additional Cuban pesos a month, or the equivalent of about
US$2. The increase was to take affect July 1.
"It's very modest, and can be improved upon," President:
Fidel Castro said in a live televised address to announce the'

The average Cuban worker earns 300 pesos a month, or the
equivalent of about US$12. Salary figures can be misleading,
however, where most citizens pay no rent, education and health
care are free, and the government offers heavily subsidized'
basic services such as utilities and transportation.
Many of those to receive the new salaries also benefited
from an earlier increase to the island's minimum wage, under 1

Reflections on Bahamian life





as it was a half-century ago


B ENSON BROWN, a
younger friend of
ours, recently remarried. As
we have been good buddies
for more than a half-century,
he had invited us to speak on
behalf of his parents at the*
reception that followed the
wedding ceremony.
That posed no difficulty, as
his parents and ours had also
been lifelong friends.
At the reception, however,
what posed a problem was the
generation gap between most
of the guests in attendance
and us. Notwithstanding this
great divide, the situation
afforded us an opportunity to
give some historical insight
into Bahamian life as it was
six decades ago, especially that


aspect of it that pertained to
theupbringing of children.
Our parents both died over
fifty years ago. Nevertheless,
just as today's parents, they
also desired their children to
have a better and easier life
than themselves, and, toward
this end, made many sacri-
fices. This was due to the fact
that they grew up during the
Great Depression of the
1920s, had to bring up their
children during the World
War II years which followed
from 1939 to 1945, and also
endure those of the Korean
War that erupted in 1948.
Y.et, with very limited for-
mal education and tough eco-
nomic times, they still found
ways to feed and clothe their
families, while rearing their
children in a strict and proper
way. Where today's' parents
provide their offspring with
the latest electronic gadgets
ana other material things, our
parents instilled in us Christ-
iali virtues such as respect
fo( our elders, good manners,
an industrious spirit, and the
value of discipline.

rB enson's father was a
carpenter; and ours,
a iruck driver. When things
got so tough in the late 1940s,
oi6r father had to park his
trqtck and go to seek employ-
ment on the "Contract" in the
United States of America as a
migrant farm worker, while
B4nson's father struggled on
working at odd jobs locally.
Ini those days,, mothers were
mostly homemakers and thus
rarely went out to work.
When our elder brother
Fr'ed, like ourselves, passed
the common entrance exami-
nation in 1949 to go to high
school he to St John's Col-
lege and we to the Govern-
mrnt High School (GHS) -
oqr father was on the Con-
tract in Florida. We wrote and
told him of our good fortune
immediately after having
received our successful results.
Hp, in turn, replied informing
us that while he was proud of
wh4t both of us had accom-
plshed, he just could not
aZord to pay the required
tu$ion fees.
'ur late sister Miriam, who
wo nine years older than us,
a1ng with an even older
cousin, put together the funds
tcdenable us to pay our first
te mn fees to GHS in January,
1950, while the Rev Fr Julian
IHnshaw did the same to
enable our brother to enter St
Jdohn's.
As GHS fees were less than
tl46se of St John's, we were
able to work during the East-
er;term holidays to earn
enough money to return when
school reopened for the sum-
nqer stint. This we were oblig-

ed to do for the next three and
a half years, before finally
dropping out of school at the
end of 1953, the year our
father died.
Our brother Fred was not
so fortunate, however. Due to
the higher fees at St John's,
he was unable to find a spon-
sor or earn sufficient money
on his own to enable him to
return to school even for a
second term. Thus, he was
obliged to drop out and begin
to learn a trade as a plumber.
Notwithstanding, he has gone
on to become quite success-


St Anne's School, to assist
children from that former
slave village in accessing a sec-
ondary education.
As we stated in this column
last week, God moves in mys-
terious ways, His wonders to
perform. From that humble
beginning, Roger has gone on
to become quite an educator
himself, having served as a for-
mer Registrar of the College
of The Bahamas, and is
presently performing the role
of Registrar of Insurance for
The Commonwealth of The
Bahamas.
On the matter of upbring-
ing children in our parents'
era fortunately or unfortu-
nately as one might view it -
their mode of discipline
occurred long before those
laws pertaining to child abuse
were enacted. Thus, corporal
punishment was not only the
order of the day but could
be and was administered in
the home, at school, or on the
streets by any of the elders in
Fox Hill who deemed our con-
duct to have been deserving
of such.
After many terrible flog-
gings, most of us kids at the
time got the impression that
the old adage: spare the rod
and you will spoil the child,
was written solely for parents
and our elders in the Fox Hill
area. In those days, parents
supported the teachers in dis-
ciplining their children at
school, and also the village
elders for doing likewise to
their children on the streets.
Not so today, however, and
thus the negative results we
are currently experiencing in
this society.
Finally, the most important
aspect of upbringing children


ful in his profession.
One of Benson's older
brothers, Roger, suffered a
similar fate a few years later,
when he passed the common
entrance examination for
admission to high school, only
to be informed by his father
that he, like our father before,
could not afford to pay the
required tuition fees. Fortu-
nately for Roger, however,
along came the Rev Father
David John Pugh to Fox Hill
around that time and founded


in our parents' era was the
extent to which they went in
seeing to it that their offspring
were brought up in the knowl-
edge and fear of God. This
was demonstrated by family
worship and prayer time in
their respective homes and in
the churches of their choice.


and their participation in all
other church-sponsored youth
organisations and activities.
Thus, our continuous involve-
ment at St Anne's Church
since 1942.
In conclusion, as some
preachers say, when young
people hear us old folks


"Where today's parents
provide their offspring with
the latest electronic gadgets
and other material things,
our parents instilled in us
Christian virtues such as
respect for our elders, good
manners, an industrious spirit,
and the value of discipline."


These aspects of Christian
worship were reinforced by
their children's consistent
attendance at Sunday school


express our yearning for a
return to the good old days -
when we all were indeed our
brother's keeper, and when


you could safely leave your
premises unlocked at all times
- the aforementioned mode
of upbringing children is what.
made it all possible. Thus, that
bygone era and not today's
violent and disrespectful rat
race was the period in our
history when things were
indeed better in The
Bahamas.
Think on these things.

Bahamian boxers take






championships by storm


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter.
'THE Amateur Boxing
Federation of the Bahamas
took a 10-member team to
the Caribbean Amateur Box-
ing Association's Champi-
onships and everyone
returned with a medal.
The Bahamas' six gold,
two silver and two bronze
medals stunned the rest of
the participating countries in
St Thomas, the Virgin
Islands.
It was a feat that head
coach Andre Seymour did-
n't expect, but one he gladly
accepted as he sang the
praises of the team members.
"The team performed
extremely well," said Sey-
mour on the team's arrival
Thursday night. "The
Bahamian people can be
proud of our team."
Success
Seymour attributed the
team's success to the fact
that the federation is reap-
ing the benefits of what he
called "an excellent junior
progranme'" in th, astat.
"We had a good junior
programme in the past and
when they are showing what
they can do at the senior lev-
el," Seymour stated.
Taureano "Reno" John-
son, the most experienced
boxer on the team, led by
example as he clinched one
of the gold medals and
repeated as the Boxer of the
Tournament for the third
consecutive year.
"Taureano Johnson did an
excellent job. This young

man is improving day by
day," said Seymour, of the
welterweight champion.
"Valentino Knowles, he's a
excellent junior welter-
weight; James McKenzie, he


was superb in the senior
heavyweight and Lavar was a
new up and coming boxer
who performed extremely
well."
While Johnson picked up


his gold in the senior welter-
weight division, McKenzie
secured his gold in the senior
super heavyweight division.

Valentino Knowles got a

division and Lavar Stewart

Kerrie claims two




titles at junior event


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
KERRIE Cartwright, following in the footsteps of her
parents, turned in a double dose of victory at the T-Rex
Junior National Tennis Tournament.
Cartwright, 13, easily won the girls' 16 singles with a
two-set decision over number three seed Elanqua Grif-
fin on Thursday at the National Tennis Centre.
But, yesterday, Cartwright, playing as the top seed,
had to go two full hours before she pulled off a
marathon comeback 7-5, 1-6, 6-4 victory over unseeded
Kalotina Klonaris in the girls' 14s.
"It was a difficult because she improved and I
improved. But I think I got a bit tight in the second set,"
said Cartwright, who rallied to become the toast of the
week-long tournament.
Despite a couple of double fault serves, she man-
aged to hold serve for a 4-4 tie in the third and final set
and she went on to break a dehydrated Klonaris, who
had trouble going after the drop shots.
With Kim and Sean Cartwright among the small
crowd of fans cheering her on, Cartwright picked up her
game another notch in the tenth game as she held serve
to win the match.

Focussed
"I just said to myself, just get focussed because I
couldn't get my serve on the court," she reflected. "I just
tried to get my serves in and everything else fell into
place."
It was a good turn around for Cartwright, who had to
work hard for every point she got in the first set.
In that set, both players traded the lead until
Cartwright went up for good at 6-5.
But the second set was a totally different story as
Cartwright couldn't get anything going.
Klonaris, the 11-year-old champion of the girls' 12 sin-
gles over top seed Simone Pratt, was. too aggressive
and she forced Cartwright into making mistakes.
The tournament served a prelude to the Interna-
tional Tennis Federation's Junior Tournament that will
begin at the NTC with the qualifying round today.
Cartwright, who lost in the semifinal last year, said her
goal is to make it to the final of the girls' 14s and per-


haps even win it.
In preparation for the tournament, top seed Jamal
Adderley, coming off a first round loss in an ITF Tour-
nament in Mexico, struggled to beat No.4 seed Jacob
Fountain 7-5, 6-4 in the boys' 16 singles.
Adderley, a native of Grand Bahama, was frustrated
with himself throughout the match, especially in the
first set when he had to rally from a 5-2 deficit to win.
"Today I didn't play as well as I should have. It was-
n't a good match for me," he admitted. "It just wasn't a
good match for me. It was a bad day."
Having to retire due to cramp in the first round in
Mexico, Adderley said he's hoping that he can redeem
himself next week at the ITF tournament here.
"I'm just trying to get in some rhythm and hit some

she stretches for this volley return against Kaloti-
na Klonaris in the girls' 14 singles final yester-
day at the NTC.

balls and see how it goes from there," he declared.
The 16-year-old student at American Heritage in
Delray, said he wants to improve on his quarterfinal fin-
ish in last year's ITF Tournament here.
Earlier in the tournament, Adderley played much
better as he disposed Robert Smith 6-2, 6-2 to clinch the
boys' 18 singles, joining Cartwright as a double cham-
pion.
On Thursday, senior national champion Alanna
Rodgers continued her winning streak as she beat Jen-
nifer Williams 6-0, 6-1 for the girls' 18 singles.
"It went pretty well, but it was just a small draw," said
Rodgers, who is looking forward to playing in the ITF
Tournament.
"I think as the tournament progresses, I expect to be
playing a lot more matches, so hopefully I can continue
to improve my game."
On the subject of improving, top seed Johnathan
Taylor played really well as he made easy work of No.2
seed and arch-rival Kevin Major 6-1, 6-0 to win the
boys' 12 singles.
"It was good. Everybody expected me to win and I
came out strong," said Taylor, who avenged a loss to
Major in the FOCOL Tournament they played in Grand
Bahama last year.
The 11-year-old sixth grader at St. Thomas More
did it with a solid serve and volley game. In fact, Taylor
was all over the court as he took Major out of his game.
Ten-year-old Major, who won the boys' 10 singles title
with a 6-3, 6-2 decision over Shaquille Taylor, knew
exactly what went wrong.
"I played bad, terrible," the St Francis/Joseph player
said. "I wasn't hitting the ball properly and I wasn't
attacking the ball. I was very disappointed because I
knew I could play better."
Both players are looking forward to playing in the
ITF Tournament for the first time.


terweight and Craig Brown
got his gold in the feather-
weight division.
The silver medals came
from Keisho Major in the
senior light-heavyweight and
Carl Hield in the junior wel-
terweight division.
The bronze came from
William McKenzie in the fly-
weight in Jarrette Dean got
his medal in the cadet super-
heavyweight division.
"We didn't expect to win it
overall, but we have a very
good programme and the
people over there thought
that all of our boxers train
in Cuba," Seymour said.
"They knew that Reno was
training there and his per-
formance showed that. But
when they saw the other
boxers, they thought they
were there too."
Next year when the CABA
Tournament is held in
Trinidad & Tobago, Sey-
mour said they will be
going back to defend the
title.

Senior
But in August, he said the
federation is looking forward
to taking at least three senior
boxers to the Common-
wealth Boxing Champi-
onships in Glasgow, Scot-
land.
At the last Commonwealth
Boxing Championships,
Reno Johnson came back
with a silver medal.
"We want to win a gold
medal for the first time," said
Seymour, is relying on John-
son to lead the way for the
team again.
"We're not just trying to
win one medal.
"If we take three or four
boxers, we're looking at win-
ning a medal from each of
these boxers."
Seymour said they couldn't
ask for a better performance
from the entire team at the
championships.
He noted that Quincy
'Thrill-A-Minute' Pratt and
Craig Ferguson both helped
out very well in their debut
as assistant coaches.

All-rounder Geno on


the road



Twelve-year-old shines in


basketball, track and soccer


By RENALDO DORSETT
Junior Sports Reporter
TODAY, sports stars are being
thrust to the forefront of society
younger than ever before, but one
multi-talented athlete is poised to
outshine them all.
Geno Bullard, a 12-year-old
graduate this summer from St.
Thomas Moore Primary School,
has excelled in track and field,
basketball, and soccer and
achieved national recognition in
each of his sporting disciplines.
Armed with tremendous leap-
ing ability, incredible speed, and
advanced ball handling skills,
Bullard has received an extensive
amount of accolades in his short
career thus far.
On the court he has led his St.
Thomas Moore Sparks to back-to-
back championships in the
Catholic Primary School Basket-
ball League.
He was twice named the Cham-
pionship series MVP and team
MVP.

Favourite
Although track was the first
sport he competed in, Bullard said
basketball has become his
favourite sport. I
He said basketball is his true
passion and he hopes to pursue it
as far as possible.
"It's a major part of my life
which I really enjoy doing," he
said.
"One day I went to the basket-
ball court with my father and I
saw everyone playing," he said,
"So I just wanted to know if I
would be able to do the sport so I
just pushed myself to learn."
On the track, he has become one
of the premiere sprinters and
jumpers in his age group.
Bullard has won the 100m and
long jump at almost every meet
h'-ie has competed in throughout his
career and has not lost since he
was eight-years-old. -
He has dominated the Catholic
,Primary School Sports. meet over
-the past three years and has cap-


tured a string of victories in the
long jump, 100m and 4xl00m.
He has also experienced success
in the Ovaltine Track Meet, Club
Monica Athletics Invitational, and
the Road Runners Track and Field
Invitational, where he set a new
long jump record with a leap of
17 feet 3/4 inches.
In soccer he has been named
Bahamas Youth Football League
MVP and has participated in the
Bahamas Football Association's
Centre for Excellence program,
where national team hopefuls are
invited to participate.
He is currently on the Junior
National Team scheduled to com-
pete next month in Trinidad.

Ultimate
Bullard says his ultimate goals
include playing in the NBA or
representing the. Bahamas on the
track at the Olympic Games.
His father, Geno Bullard Sr.,
said Geno has been training since
he was seven years old and has
always showed a desire to be the
best.
"Everything he does he always
gives 110 per cent," he said, "He's
always had the drive to do any-
thing he sets his mind to and he
always excels in it."
As for which sport the younger
Bullard will focus on as he pro-
gresses through high school, his
father said its entirely up to
junior.
"I know he likes basketball a
lot," he said, "So I think he may
go into basketball, but he's very
good at track and soccer also so
it's up to him."
Geno Bullard Sr. said he has not
yet decided which junior high
school his son will attend this fall.
At a young age he already dis-
plays the maturity and eagerness
to learn that is essential for a
young athlete to succeed.
With an array of talent, focus,
and parental support, the ques-
tion is not whether Geno Bullard
will succeed, It is just a matter of
which path he chooses for his road
to success.
