BNT to begin legal

action against suspected

national park offernders


* By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas National
Trust is expected to begin legal
action today against those
responsible for dumping tons
of industrial waste and house-
hold garbage in the Bonefish
National Park.
The trust has declined to
name the suspected dumpers
-until the matter appears before
the courts.
But according to Chris
Hamilton, executive director of
the BNT, despite the alarm
being raised, large scale dump-
ing continued over the week-
end at the protected area locat-
ed in southern New Providence.
"The dumping has now
wavered from industrial mater-
ial and now they are off-loading
household garbage into the
pond. I just got off the phone
with our attorney Pericles Mail-
lis, and we will be filing action
tomorrow (Monday) against
these persons responsible," Mr
Hamilton told The Tribune last
night.

The 1,800-acre Bonefish
National Pond lies on the south-

and is considered an important

It also supports a wide variety
of waterfowl and an important
variety of native flora.

Reports first surfaced about
the alarming amount of garbage
that threatens the national park

Foulkes promises 'more





aggressive' leadership style


Former

minister is

confident that

the time is

right to run



* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
DION Foulkes promised
yesterday that if he is elected
leader of the FNM, he will
offer "a more aggressive"
style of leadership.
The former Minister of
Education who was deputy
leader of the party during the
2002 election announced last
week that he plans to offer
for the leadership when the
party goes to convention in
November. Mr Foulkes
resigned as deputy leader
shortly after he lost his seat
in the 2002 general election.
Concerning the allegations
made against him while he
was Minister of Education,
Mr Foulkes said the accusa-
tions raised by the PLP were
"false and never proven". He
claimed that he was in pos-
session of a report which
proves this and would release
it on his website "shortly".
Mr Foulkes said that while
Tommy Turnquest had done
a good job in keeping the
message of the FNM in the
public domain, he (Mr
Foulkes) tends to be more
"aggr ssive and personable"
in'hisltyle of leadership.

Views
"We have different views,"
he told Parliament Street
hosts Fayne Thompson and
Anthony Delaney yesterday.
rMif Foulkes said he has
t~ken the last three years
(since the FNM was voted
out of office) to consider
whether he wants to run.
And is fully confident that
this is the right time for him
to make that move.
"I am in the race to the
end. Come November 8, I
plan to put my name in the
race.
. "'The FNM party needs a
clear alternative in terms of
where the party needs to go,


FNM leadership candidate Dion Foulkes speaks
yesterday on Parliament Street.


to the future of the country. I
think I have something to
offer."
Mr Foulkes insisted that
his decision was not a per-
sonal attack on Mr Turn-
quest and that the two
remain friends.
Noting that there are at
least two other persons in the
party who may also contest
the leadership, Mr Foulkes
said that it was not a reflec-
tion on Mr Turnquest's abil-
ity to lead the party.
"I think it is indicative of
the confidence that we have
in ourselves."
When asked how a Hubert
Ingraham comeback would
affect his decision to run, Mr
Foulkes said that right now
there was still too much spec-
ulation on Mr Ingraham's
intentions to respond.
"He is a very significant
personality and has done a
lot for the country," he said.
Mr Foulkes added that he
has respect for all of the pos-
sible candidates, and that
should he lose a leadership
bid he would respect the win-
ner. "I will support them and
I will campaign with them."
Mr Foulkes predicted that
the leadership contest would
be civilised, diplomatic and
democratic. "I think the


Bahamian voter would
demand that we be positive."
Noting that he and Mr
Turnquest both have fathers
with long and distinguished
careers in politics, Mr
Foulkes said: "I am sure his
father will do everything to
help him, just as I know my
father will do everything to
help me."

Mentor
He said that while his
father, Sir Arthur Foulkes, is
his political mentor, he is


very much his own person
with his own ideas.
Commenting on the PLP
government, Mr Foulkes said
that the Christie administra-
tion is directionless and lacks
a succinct economic plan.
"The Bahamian people are
crying out for decisive lead-
ership," he said.
Mr Foulkes .said the he
plans to focus on the educa-
tion system, the Baha Mar
billion-dollar Cable Beach
deal and the way develop-
ments are approved in the
Bahamas.

Unification


Churc


and


its teaching


EDITOR, The Tribune

"We are treated as poor, yet
making many rich; as having
nothing, and yet possessing
everything!" (2 Cor. 6:10).
THERE is so much more
that the Rev Dr Kendall
Capron reportedly failed to
mention with regard to the
beliefs of the Family Federa-
tion for World Peace and Uni-
fication (FFWPU) and the Rev
Sun Myung Moon, founder of
the Unification Church.
I could not help but to
respond in written form to the
article titled "Unification
Church leader challenged at
conference" in your daily dated
Tuesday, May 31, 2005.
I also wanted to congratu-
late the lone "elderly Baptist
lady" who had the courage and
enough spiritual discernment
to rightly challenge the doc-
trine being espoused by the
Rev Dr Sik Yu, continental
leader of the (FFWPU).
Dr Yu reportedly intimated
that "man can be better than
God, because a human is visi-
ble, but God is not" and went
on to state that "God will be
happy that His children (man)
are better than Him, because
he made us all in his image and
likeness." What utter rubbish!
The article then went on to
mention a little bit about the
brief history of the Unification
Church, it highlighted ominous
prophecies for the Bahamian
society and what we can do to
avert their fulfilment, and it
recorded the unscriptural Uni-
fication doctrines about man
and sin. Surprisingly, the con-
ference was also reportedly
endorsed by five local Baptist
pastors.
Nevertheless, what I find
even more bewildering than all
this preceding information is
the fact that near the end of
the article the Rev Dr Kendall
Capron, one of the main organ-
isers for the conference, came
forward to defend the Unifica-
tion Church and its leaders stat-
ing that they are "not a cult."
Indeed, the pastoral letter to
Timothy foreshadows that "the
time is coming when people
will not put up with sound doc-
trine, but having itching ears,
they will accumulate for them-
selves teachers to suit their own
desires, and will turn away
from listenifig to the truth and
wander away to myths." (2 Tim
4:3-4).

reportedly stated that "Rev
Moon believes in God, believes
that Jesus is the son of God,
and that Jesus died, was buried,
and rose again." However,
that's not all he believes in. The
letter of James says in part:
"...Even the demons believe
(these same facts) and
shudder." (James 2:19)
However, for the benefit of
other concerned Christians in
the Bahamas, here are a few
important details about the
Unification church's beliefs
that Rev Dr Capron failed to
mention. All of this informa-
tion may be found in the book
entitled: "Charts of Cults,
Sects, and Religious Move-
ments" by H Wayne House
(ThD, JD), professor of biblical
studies and apologetics, pro-
fessor of law, and professor of
theology and culture.
i) God is not a Trinity. God
exists only as the Father.
ii) There are several trinities:
the first (God, Adam and Eve)
failed to materialise because of
the Fall; the second was a spir-
itual one consisting of God,
Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. The
third trinity will occur when
Christ becomes the True Par-
ent, both spiritually and physi-
cally.
iii) Jesus was not equal to
God the Father.
iv) Jesus was not God in the
flesh.
v) Christianity has mistaken-
ly made Jesus into God.
vi) Jesus was not born of a
virgin. He was the son of Mary
and Zacharias (the husband of
Mary's cousin Elizabeth and
the father of John the Baptist).
vii) Jesus was not physically
resurrected from the dead.
viii) Jesus' death actually
prevented Him from success-
fully completing His mission.
ix) Salvation is a process
based on works, which leads us
to our future resurrection.
x) Salvation is possible
through Rev Sun Myung Moon
(the Lord of the Second
Advent) and his wife. They are
the modern Adam and Eve,


the "True Parents" of humani-
ty. Moon fulfils the Second
Coming promised in the New
Testament.
These are certainly not the
beliefs of any orthodox Christ-
ian church.
Nevertheless, the Rev Dr
Kendall Capron is finally quot-
ed as saying: "Rev Moon is a
good person. If he is a cult, I
would like to be just like him. I
have seen the blessing that God
has placed on him and the
work he does for the poor. If
he is a cult, then he is a God-
blessed cult and we need more
of them."
I would simply like to remind
Dr Capron that success and
prosperity (financial or. other-
wise) are not the only indica-
tors of 'God-blessedness,' for
God makes His sun rise on the
evil and on the good, and sends
rain on the just and on the
unjust (Matt 5:45).
Moreover, in terms of dis-
cerning who the false prophets
are, St Paul's second letter to
the Corinthians warns us that
"...even Satan disguises him-
self as an angel of light. So it is
not strange if his ministers also
disguise themselves as minis-
ters of righteousness. Their end
will match their deeds" (2 Cor
11:14-15).
I would imagine that there
are many religious leaders
among us who look like angels
of light, but who in actuality
are false prophets.
While I realise that organis-
ing and hosting such confer-
ences and bringing in interna-
tional speakers are a potential
source for great wealth,
income, and prestige, I would
like to humbly suggest and
request that we as Bahamians,
but particularly as Bahamian
religious leaders, read a little
more before we injudiciously
endorse a product simply per-
haps because it bears the label
'foreign.'
I would presume that such a
request would not be so bur-
densome, particularly for those
of us who have already stud-
ied to attain the designation of
"Rev Dr".

THE TRIBUNE














Dr Nottage has a huge contribution




to make to politics in the Bahamas


W HATEVER the
W outcome of the
impending FNM leadership con-
test, the whole spectacle promis-
es to be a reminder of the extent
of the disconnect between good
politics and good policy, as all of
the candidates commence their
baby-kissing campaigns and the
matter of ideas and issues gets
lost in the din.
You see, Bahamian voters are
interested primarily in style and
presentation.
They seldom, if ever, use
these opportunities to ask the
candidates exactly just how they
differ from their rivals in terms
of their plans for the country
once elected. And politicians
can be relied upon not to bring
up these troubling matters if not
directly asked. The cycle con-
tinues.
That being the case, it is most
unusual to find a politician who
combines the essential Bahami-
an political skills with any
understanding of the issues con-
fronting the Bahamas.
For this reason, many think-
ing Bahamians will feel that, in
failing to make more explicit
overtures to Dr Bernard Not-
tage, the FNM missed a gold-
en opportunity to attract to
their side a Bahamian of obvi-
ous ability, conviction and ideas
three things that are not in
common currency among politi-
cians of either of the established
parties.
Anyone who keeps up with
the CDR's weekly newspaper
releases will have noted the par-
ty's robust, honest and thought-
ful tackling of many of the most
important issues facing this
country, from immigration to
education to local government.
It is clear that, behind these
releases is a politician whose
prime emphasis in politics is the
process of national develop-
ment.

Of course, as has been
noted elsewhere, a
party with little prospect of elec-
tion victory is intrinsically freer
to voice intelligent but poten-
tially controversial public views
than one that actually scents the
prospect of taking office (viz.
the Liberal Democratsin the
United Kingdom). But this does
not explain the failure of either
of the two dominant parties to
even attempt by stealth (over a
combined 38 years in power)
the implementation of a sys-
tematic programme for achiev-
ing full development.
In fact, in the case of both of
them, the lack of good, sober
ideas expressed in opposition
has translated into an almost
slothful lack of policy initiatives
once in office and a madden-
ingly shallow and superficial
approach to the big questions
of development.
Nearly 40 years after Stafford
Sands, we still await, for
instance, a government that will
present us with a believable
plan as to when and how it
intends to convert the Sands
model of development (massive
foreign investment in "interna-
tional" industries) into one of
genuine Bahamian-led growth.
"When", as Dr Nottage alone
seems to be asking, "are we
going to begin building this

country with our own hands?"
Where are the plans for an
educational system that will cre-
ate the skills that are needed to
engender new industries? In
fact, both parties seem perfectly
happy just to sit around and wait
for another foreigner to come
in with the ideas and money and
then coerce him to hire as many
Bahamians as possible.

All of those countries
that have moved
from developing to developed
status since the war have fol-
lowed a very different
approach. Japan, Singapore,
Taiwan, Malaysia and Korea all
first settled upon the objective
of development and then
achieved it by using education-
al policy, law and planning to
alter the culture of their coun-
tries from a culture of depen-
dency and subsistence to one of
production and excellence.
The success of this strategy
explains the distinction between
growth and development. The
latter requires a clearly articu-
lated plan of action and a posi-
tive commitment to it by those

in power. Unless there is to be a
one party state (as there has
been in the case of all countries
that developed themselves in
the last 50 years), then this com-
mitment must permeate the
entire political class.
In the Bahamas, it is arguable
that, far from committing itself,
the political elite has not even
settled upon the objective of
national development. Instead it
has settled upon semantic forms
that steal from the vocabulary
of development.
For instance, both major par-
ties speak of 'empowering' local
communities, but when a choice
has to be made they both follow
the easiest course (that of super-
ficiality and no essential change),
substituting the exercise of real
local government with a patron-
ising, impotent extension of cen-
tral bureaucracy.
The result, as ever, is policy-
by-reaction, as local people


Both parties seem perfectly

ment in turn reacts by flying
over some ministers to smooth
feathers and get undertakings
(and hugs) from the developer.

n New Providence, as in
the Family Islands, the
term 'local government' means
nothing if it does not mean giv-
ing Bahamians immediate con-
trol of their economic destiny,
requiring their involvement in
all matters that will affect them
and according them funds suffi-
cient to implement policy at the
local level. Dr Nottage seems
to understand how crucial this is
to the process of national devel-
opment, since it would cause an
expansion of all kinds of busi-
ness activities throughout the
country.
He, like so few in either main
party, also understands that, at
some point, a fundamental shift
must take place in our relation-
ship with capital. We must
become creators, rather than
merely users of it. And to do
this will require planning and
foresight, rather than just more
money and jobs.
In fact, in a perverse way, the



FetS.zr uniie
Pest ontro

situation is made worse by our
wealth. Though we remain a
dependent, subsistence eco-
nomic culture, we are in fact
nonetheless doing pretty well.
In these circumstances, most
politicians prefer simply to


indulge the electorate's back-
ward, consumerist urges (lais-
sez faire policies and "jobs, jobs,
jobs") than to confront them
with the fact of the ultimate
weakness and unsustainability
of their situation.

Bahamas air refutes


claims that they paid


retainer to law firm


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
BAHAMASAIR has strong-
ly refuted claims made by FNM
leader Senator Tommy Turn-
quest that the national flag car-
rier paid a retainer to the Sears
and Co law firm.
Responding to the claims
made by Mr Turnquest last
week, Bahamasair issued a
statement at the weekend,
denying the claim that a retain-
er was paid to the former law -
firm of Attorney General and
Minister of Education, Alfred
Sears.
"For his edification, the facts
are that there was no retainer
paid to Sears and Co but
rather, Mrs Marion Bethel-
Sears of Sears and Co was
engaged by Bahamasair to reg-
ularise the airlines's corporate
records which had not been
done in its 32-year history,"
said the release.
Mrs Bethel-Sears, wife of the
Attorney General, was con-
tracted because of her expertise
in this particular area, accord-
ing to Bahamasair.
The airline said that Mrs
Bethel-Sears was able to com-
plete "this tedious and compli-
cated exercise at a reasonable
cost of $25,740". The fee was-
paid in three installments as
the work progressed.
"Mr Turnquest seems to
have forgotten or intentionally
overlooked that this same exer-


cise had been a work in
progress most of the years the
FNM ran the government and
the airline," said the release.
Bahamasair claimed that
FNM engaged many lawyers,
including a government
employed attorney, the attor-
ney general's office and a sit-
ting MP.
The release asked why Mr
Turnquest would choose to
raise the matter, particularly as
he was the last minister with
responsibility for the airline.
Resolve
"The truth is that for years
now, none of the earlier attor-
neys were able to unravel and
resolve the many issues that
evolved over time with respect
to the conduct of Bahamasair's
business versus the articles con-
tained in the corporate
records," said the release.
Mrs Bethel-Sears was able
to resolve the matter which is
critical to the Bahamasair pri-
vatization process as any flaws
in the corporate records would
surface in the due diligence
phase, said the release.
"Mr Turnquest and his FNM
colleagues need to be less hasty
in leveling such allegations.
"Bahamasair today prides
itself on its transparent modus
operandi and stands ready to
account for anyone, any time
regarding its corporate con-
duct."

Seafaring community shows




off its latest pride and joy


* By Gladstone Thurston
Bahamas Information
Services-
DUNCAN TOWN, Ragged
Island This seafaring com-
munity showed off its latest
pride and joy Constable 2673
Carlton Smith and the Com-
munity Youth Band which he
formed.
In co-operation with the
Royal Bahamas Police Force,
youngsters, drawn from the all-
age school here, diligently
applied themselves to the study
of music although they have no
music teacher.
It was Constable Smith who,
with rudimentary knowledge
of music inspired the young-
sters to take up an instrument
for the first time, and formed a
band last December.
Some weeks ago, a Duncan
Town resident wrote Commis-
sioner of Police Paul Far-
quharson concerning the "won-
derful job" Constable Smith
was doing with the children.
Mr Farquharson was so
impressed, he read the letter
to senior officers and dis-
patched Chief Superintendent
Hulan Hanna, second in charge
of the Southern Bahamas, with
his commendations.
"The children in New Provi-
dence need to know that you
don't have to be bad to make
the headlines...you can come
to Ragged Island and see what
young people are doing in a
productive and wholesome
way," said Mr Hanna.
The Duncan Town commu-
nity, led by Chief Councillor
Granville Hepburn, joined
Chief Superintendent Hanna
and Superintendent Willard
Cunningham, Sr, officer in
charge of the Exuma/Ragged
Island District, and other offi-
cers, in applauding the band as
it performed popular pieces at
the weekend.
In New Providence and oth-


er major islands there are sev-
eral community bands that
were created as a result of the
Urban Renewal Programme.
Spearheaded by the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, helping
people in the community to use
their talents to build a better
Bahamas, is at the core of the
programme, Mr Hanna
explained.
Over the years, the police
has partnered with the Ministry
of Health, the Ministry of
Works, the Social Services
Department, public and private
enterprises.
Normally, a member of the
Royal Bahamas Police Force
Band, responsible for teaching
the children music like a pro-
fessional bandsman, is assigned
to a community.
"But you have here (Con-
stable Smith) who is not a
member of the band but who
has musical skills and talents,
decided he would use his abili-
ty to develop our children and
present them back to us," said
Chief Superintendent Hanna.
"That is commendable."
"And this band is very sig-
nificant," he added. "Bands in
New Providence have big chil-
dren, but look at the small chil-
dren who are in this band. And
they are doing an exceptional
job.
Proud
"It makes me proud to be a
Bahamian. What it says is that
Ragged Island might be some
distance away from New Prov-
idence and some of the other
populated centres of the
Bahamas, but you have not
been forgotten."
When Ragged Island All-
Age principal Robert Boodram
arrived two years ago, the chil-
dren only heard about a band.
Some did not know the names
of instruments.
"But, within a very short


* CONSTABLE 2673 Carlton Smith directs the horns section

time Mr Smith taught them
they were able to play quite
well," he said. "Music is very
important. It keeps the mind
occupied away from negative
activities. Students concentrate
more on their school work
because of the discipline they
develop doing music."
When told that a band was
being formed, the youngsters
initially were quite apprehen-
sive, said Mr Boodram, "but
when they saw other youth
bands in the Bahamas per-
forming and representing their
communities, they wanted to
be on the map also."
"There are lots of talented
kids here," said Constable
Smith. "They just need some-
one to help them express that
talent.
"The response has been very
positive. They have no distrac-
tion here and I believe that is
one of the main reasons they
responded as well as they did."
Officers like Smith are in
high demand. Superintendent
Cunningham, officer in charge
of the Exuma/Ragged Island
District, confirmed that come
September, Smith is assigned
to Black Point in the Exuma


cays, to organize a community
band. From there it is neigh-
bouring communities Farmer
Cay and Staniel Cay.
Superintendent Cunningham
commended principal
Boodram, parents and
guardians for supporting the
police in Ragged Island.
"Commissioner Farquharson
is very proud of these students
here...He believes in the youth
of this nation. If we want crime
to be reduced in the Bahamas,
we must deal with the youth
because they are the way for-
ward. We believe once we
assist our youth they will grow
up to be productive citizens."
Corporal Perry Brice who
heads the 110-member march-
ing band on mainland Exuma
was "very impressed."'
"For the short time they
were learning their instru-
ments, I think they are doing
quite well," he said.
Come next year, the plan is
to organise a combined band
with performers from Ragged
Island, Exuma, Farmer's Cay,
Black Point and Staniel Cay
"and go into Nassau and show
them something," said Corpo-
ral Brice.

Commonwealth Bank helps



take Junkanoo to Washington


THE things you didn't know
about Junkanoo might sur-
prise you. Like how many
years costumes were made of
sponge.
The answer some four
decades, up until 1938 when a
fungus wiped out the sponging
industry to that question and
many more will be provided
during a living exhibit to be
staged at the headquarters of
the Organisation of American
States in Washington, DC.
For-four days, from July 5-8,
thousands of visitors to the
neighbouring nation's capital
will get a taste of this nation's
primary cultural expression,
thanks to an idea planted by
Bahamas Ambassador to the
US Joshua Sears and dona-
tions of generous sponsors like
Commonwealth Bank.
Mr Sears invited Educulture
Bahamas Limited, a company
created to research, explore
and celebrate the culture of
the islands of the Bahamas, to
stage the display.

Dressed
"We will be carrying up life-
size figures dressed in cos-
tumes of yesteryear newspa-
per, sponge, tissue and mod-
ern day Junkanoo, all the cos-
tuming and music," said Edu-
culture founder Arlene Nash-
Ferguson. In addition to
Junkanoo figures, cowbells
and drums, the exhibit will
include general information
on the Bahamas. It will be
framed by an opening recep-
tion on the 5th and an Inde-
pendence Day celebration for
Bahamians living abroad July
8.
Mrs Nash-Ferguson credited
Mr Sears with the idea and
"generous corporate citizens
like Commonwealth Bank"
for making it reality.
"We owe a debt of gratitude
to Ambassador Sears and to
Commonwealth Bank. It is
because of their efforts and
generosity," she said, "that the
international community will
get to see the unique culture
of the Bahamas."


* TWO Bahamian ambassadors to the US, one former, one cur-
rent, one goodwill ambassador and a generous donation from
Commonwealth Bank are helping to stage a Junkanoo splash at
OAS headquarters in Washington, DC in July. For four days from
July 5-8, thousands of visitors to the neighbouring nation's capital
will get a peek at the history and meaning of Junkanoo. Pictured,

Prison set to expand



tailor shop operation


* By Bahamas Information
Services
HER Majesty's Prison will
soon expand its tailoring pro-
gramme to include mass pro-
duction and garment manufac-
turing.
The move comes ahead of the
planned launch of the Inmates
Industries Programme, which
Prison Superintendent Dr Ellis-
ton Rahming said could have a
positive impact on inmates at
the Fox Hill prison, their fami-
lies and the victims of the
inmates.
Money from the Inmates
Industries Programme will be
split in five ways.
Inmates participating in the
programme will receive a 20 per
cent share which will cover their
room and board while incarcer-
ated; 20 per cent will be placed
into a mandatory savings pro-
gramme that will be provided to
the inmates upon their release
from the facility; 20 per cent will
go to the victims of their crimes;
20 per cent to family members of
the inmates for the maintenance
of children etc, and the final 20
per cent to the inmates for their
personal use while incarcerated.
The tailoring programme is
manned by 34 inmates who,
under the direction of several
officers led by Chief Officer
William Saunders, are respon-
sible for sewing the uniforms of
the officers, inmates and
recruits that currently reside at
or are employed at the facility.
The shop has been responsi-
ble for providing uniforms in
large quantities for officers,
inmates and recruits, and have
been doing so at a very high lev-
el "for years". The next logical
step, he said, is to explore
avenues "in which we can get
into garment manufacturing
here at the compound".
"It is our belief that garment
manufacturing can be a viable
addition to what we currently
do here in the tailor shop at Her
Majesty's Prison. We have the

capability and the personnel to
accomplish this goal. It's just a
matter of us doing a bit more
fact-finding before we launch
into these two new ventures,"
said assistant superintendent of
prisons, Stevenson Smith.
Administrators at the penal
institution have held talks with
other penal facilities in North
America and the Caribbean
with a view to having managers
at Her Majesty's Prison under-
study some of the more viable
prison manufacturing pro-
grammes in those areas.
The discussions are part of
Superintendent Rahming's
desire to have a highly trained
and motivated cadre of senior


administrators, managers and
staff in the employ of the ser-
vice at all levels as the institu-
tion moves towards becoming
a correctional facility.
"It is always good to visit oth-
er penal institutions to get a
first-hand view as to what they
are doing and of the advances
that we may be able to imple-
ment here at Her Majesty's
Prison," said Mr Smith.
"We want to be able to mass
produce items and to manufac-
ture garments in the very near
future and so we need to get as
much additional expertise in
these areas as possible.
"It is my belief that we have
the capabilities to accomplish


oto: Felipi Major/Tribune Staff)
both of these objectives here at
Her Majesty's Prison. We have
a competent Chief Officer
(William Saunders) who over-
sees the day-to-day operations
of the tailor shop which, under
his supervision, has grown by
leaps and bounds and compares
favourably to any tailor shop
anywhere in the Bahamas."
Mr Saunders, a 15-year veter-
an at Her Majesty's Prison, said
the tailoring programme has
produced tremendous results
over the years, as many of the
former inmates who participated
in the programme either have
their own shops or have formed
partnerships that have proven
to be very successful.

SIt's easy being green


WE ARE all aware that
more people these days are
concerned about the environ-
ment and our impact on it.
Kermit the Frog lamented all
those years ago, "It Ain't Easy
Bein' Green." But oh, how
times have changed!
For the first time, in the US,
the National Association of
Home Builders has unveiled
rules for constructing "envi-
ronmentally friendly" homes.
"Green" features for future
homes in the Bahamas might
include the way your lot is
prepared, the home's energy
efficiency, the quality of the
interior environment, low
maintenance landscaping, and


even ways to reclaim water
and use natural sources of
energy.
While the concept of "green
houses" is relatively new,
what's even newer is the idea
that these homes should be
affordable. It's been the case
for quite some time that only
"niche" builders serving
"upper end" clients could
offer such energy-saving, envi-

Miller appeal

on mark-ups

FROM page one
Bahamas places a $1.06 tax
on every
gallon of gas. Combined
with the importer and retail-
ers mark up of $0.33 and
$0.44 respectively, this puts
a collective mark up of $1.83
before the actual cost of the
fuel is factored into the final
pricing.
"This $0.77 is debilitating,
criminal really. That is the
highest in the region. In
Florida it is between $0.05
to $0.08. Why is it $0.77
cents in the Bahamas?" Mr
Miller asked.
With the price of gasoline
at the pumps at $3.59, $3.64,
and $3.60 at Esso, Texaco
and Shell respectively; the
$0.10 increase tomorrow
should push the price per
gallon up to an average of
$3.71.


Bar Council seeking

declaration on RG


FROM page one
Court ruling that Registrar
General Elizabeth Thompson
was unfairly terminated from
her post earlier this year.
Now, questions have been
raised about the legality of Mr
Miller's powers, given that Ms
Thompson has been reinstat-
ed to her post by law.
"For a small country like the
Bahamas, that would be fairly
disastrous," Wayne Munroe,
council president, said.
It would mean that every
marriage licence signed or cer-
emonies performed by Mr
Miller would not be legal. The
incorporation of many compa-
nies would also not be legal,
explained Mr Munroe.
This, he said, could have far
reaching ramifications, bearing
in mind the large number of
tourists who are married in the
country and the Bahamas' posi-


tion as a leading financial ser-
vices sector.
Describing the situation as
"ridiculous", Mr Munroe said
that if the government truly did
not want Ms Thompson to
resume her post they should
have put her on paid leave
pending the decision of the stay.
This is a provision which would
give an acting registrar general
authority to sign documents.
In the meantime, Ms
Thompson continues to go to
work under police escort.
Speaking on Sunday, she
said that "negotiations have
broken down" between herself
and the government.
Although she has been
locked out of her office, she
continues to work and has been
careful to sign all documents
under the assistant registrar
general Lucinda Bethel, and
works only on issues in the
interest of the public.


BNT action

on dumping

FROM page one
Officials from the Department
of Environmental Health Services
conducted a walk-through of the
park on Friday and estimated the
garbage to be in excess of hun-
dreds of tons, made up predomi-
nately of industrial waste.
At the site was a "brand new"
D8 bulldozer valued roughly at
$700,000, apparently waiting to
push the debris into the marsh.
The BNT believes dump trucks
have been offloading old tyres,
car parts, water heaters, propane
tanks, and other industrial and
household waste since February.
Mr Hamilton said that alleged-
ly attempts have been made to
remove the D8 bulldozer before
it could be seized by authorities.
He said: "We know who some
of the people are who are doing
it, and because we are pending
legal action we don't want to list
them, but this is just outrageous."

Lightning storm causes power cut


FROM page one
to resolve up to press time last
night.
Kevin Basden of the Bahamas
Electricity Corporation empha-
sised yesterday that Sunday's
island-wide power cut was not
the result of load shedding, but
was caused by bad weather.
"We apologise to our cus-
tomers," Mr Basden told The
Tribune last night, "but our


overall system is very small, not
like the large grids in the US,
and if we lose even a couple of
generators it has an impact."
While workers had the sys-
tem back up by 8.15am yester-
day, a problem with a trans-
former at the Blue Hills Power
Station and a generator at the
Clifton Pier plant resulted in a
second power failure to some
parts of the island.
As of yesterday afternoon all


customers were back on-line,
but workers were still address-
ing problems at Blue Hills and
Clifton Pier, said Mr Basden,
adding that repairs would hope-
fully be completed in a day or
two.
"Unless there are further dif-
ficulties we don't except any
more problems," he said.
Mr Basden added that BEC
has taken steps to minimise load
shedding.


Woman 'found with cocaine'


FROM page one
street value of $120,000.
According to police reports,
the incident allegedly occurred
at about 3.42pm as passengers
boarding the Discovery Sun
were being screened for a cruise
to Port Everglades, Florida.
A security officer reportedly
noticed that a female passen-
ger was attempting to avoid the
X-ray scanner.
The woman was ordered to
walk through the scanner, which
sounded the alarm.
Four pink rectangular taped


packages containing cocaine
were allegedly discovered con-
cealed underneath her girdle.
A 44-year-old American
cancer patient staying at the
Bell Channel Club was found
dead on Saturday morning,
police reported last night.
Charles Lafferty of Westch-
ester, Pennsylvania, told police
that his brother, Dennis Patrick
Lafferty, had been on the island
since April for throat cancer
treatment at a local clinic. Den-
nis was staying with his brother
in room 106 at the Bell Channel
Club.


Mr Lafferty said that on Friday
around 10pm his brother took
some sleeping tablets and retired
to bed. When he awoke around
8am Saturday, he tried to awak-
en Dennis but got no response.
He telephoned Port Lucaya
Police Station around 8.05am
to report the incident.
When EMS personnel arrived
at the scene the man was in a
coma and was transported to
Rand Memorial Hospital,
where the duty doctor pro-
nounced him dead at 8.25am.
Foul play is not suspected at
this time.

PROPER eating habits, reg-

foundation of a healthy

bers were told. At a one-day
health screening and lecture

Team members also
received tips 'on lowering high
cholesterol with a change in

And advised to eat more
lean proteins and low fat

Housekeeping supervisor,
Portia Poitier, who was ecsta-

loss, said that while she is
sticking to a diet and exercise
programme, she was glad to
see that she is on target to
meet her goal.
After her screening, Portia's

"Earlier in the year, I

ball


By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
AS PART of its golden
anniversary celebrations, St
Anne's School held a scholar's
ball to honour six individuals
who have played a major role in
the school's development.
The black-tie affair was held
at the Sandals Royal Bahamian
Resort and Spa on Saturday,
and provided alumni, family
and friends of St Anne's a
chance to share memories and
meet old friends.
A representative of almost
every graduating class since the
school's inception in 1955 was in
attendance.
One of the highlights of the
evening was the "Waltz of the
Graduates", which featured the
class of 2005 dancing with their
parents.
Memories
Mistress and Master 6of Cere-
monies were two famous aluhim-
ni: Jerome Sawyer, news direc-
tor at Island FM/Cable 12 and
former Miss Bahamas; NK 4ra
Simms. They had the cro68 in
stitches, offering .persot.ial
memories of their school days at
St Anne's.
A special tribute by John
Bullard, a member of the class
of 1968, was paid to "the father
of St Anne's", Rev Canon John
Pugh, who on January 6,
1955 started the school with
26 students and three
teachers.
Fr Pugh who had lived in the
Bahamas for more than half a
century, left Nassau in 2003 to
return to his native England to
recuperate from a nasty fall,
which left him with very limited
mobility.
On Sunday, January 30,2005,
at his sister's Rita's home in
Wales, Fr Pugh died at the age
of 84.

Teacher
The six honourees included:
Samuel Bethel, a former lan-
guage arts teacher and former
vice-principal of the school;
Roger Brown, a member of the
first graduating class of 1955;
Thelma Brennen- Demeritte
and Audrey Evans, two of the
founding staff members; Chris-
tine Barker Flowers, the longest
serving staff member in the pri-
mary department; and Nigel
Rosson, the longest serving staff
member in the secondary
department.
In his response on behalf of
the honourees, Mr Bethel said
that educators entered the pro-
fession for the love of their stu-
dents, adding that every student
who graduates to lead a pro-
ductive life, honours their teach-
ers.
Entertainment for the
evening was provided by the
Royal Bahamas Police Pop
Band and DJ Gary 'Super'
Johnson.
The evening's proceeds are
to go to the Canon David John
Pugh Library Development
Fund and the St Anne's swim-
ming complex.

Primary students'


top achievement


*; By GLADSTONE THURSTON
Bahamas Information
Services
FRESH Creek, Andros -
With a grade point average of
,3.6, Stephen Hanna and
Lakiesha Goodman shared top
honours during the Fresh Creek
,Primary School awards cere-
*mony.
Hanna, the spelling bee
champion, was honoured for
,superior achievement in read-
ing, language/grammar, science,
mathematics, history, social
studies and physical education.
Goodman, the school's most
outstanding.girl, excelled in
.reading, language/grammar,
spelling, mathematics, science
and religious education.
Ariel Ferguson was ,second
with a 3.3 followed by Myra
Neymour and Arnaldie Nesbitt


each with a 3.0. Justin Spence,
2.7, and Shaquille Davis, 2.6,
won honourable mention.
"Create your own dreams,
follow your goals, and live your
life to the fullest," encouraged
principal Emily Miller. "Pick
the goals that will take you to
the top. Do the best that you
can. Be better than best."
Dignitaries including District
Superintendent Harcourt Davis,
local government officials prin-
cipals from other schools in
North Andros joined parents,
guardians, relatives, well wish-
ers and visitors at the
Chickcharnie Hotel ballroom
to give these youngsters a rous-
ing send-off to junior high
school.
The guest speaker Agricul-
ture, Fisheries and Local Gov-
ernment Minister Alfred Gray,
urged parents to understand


how environment affects a
child's behaviour.
"Respect your parents," he
told them. "When you don't
have respect for your parents
it's difficult, if not impossible
to respect your teachers.
District Superintendent Davis
called on parents to strengthen
their involvement in their chil-
dren's education through the
parent-teachers association.
"It has been proven time and
time again that parents who are
interested and who take part in
the affairs of the schools their
children are attending, their
children seem to do well," he
said. "And we know that those
parents are always behind their
children."
Principal Emily Miller told of
"quite an eventful," school year.
"Our children tried their best...
the teachers are happy."

Visit our Showroom & Office located at the Red Carpet Inn, East Bay Stret


So said Glenys Hanna-Mar-
tin, Minister of Transport and
Aviation, at the installation cer-
emony for officers of the Down-
town Pilot Club of Nassau at
the British Colonial Hilton
Hotel.
Mrs. Hanna-Martin was.
speaking in place of Melanie
Griffin, Miinister of Social Ser-
vices and Community Devel-
opment.
". We have seen the gradual
.erosion. of a segment of our
community that many of us
have relied upon and probably
still rely upon to some degree;
that is our extended family, that
grandmother, aunt or family
friend, who can be called upon
to lend assistance in nurturing
and monitoring our children,"
Mrs Hanna-Martin said.
Women head approximately
five per cent of single-headed
households.
"Some of these women have
children and, in some instances,
have responsibilities for their
parents, younger.siblings, nieces
and nephews. Many hurdles and
difficulties are born out of this
pheianomenon.
"There is no one to leave their
young children with after school
while they are still at work or
abolit to leave for shift work.
This means that children are,
and at some instances very
young children, .being left at


home in the care of other minors
because there are no extended
families in this scenario," said
Mrs Hanna-Martin said.
Some parents are forced to
take their children to the work
place because they cannot afford
after-school care, she said.
S"But what of the parents
whose employers are not
lenient? (Their) children are left
unattended without some
means of supervision. Most are
susceptible to falling prey to
abuse, gangs, peer pressure,
drugs, molestation, abduction
and other areas," Mrs Hanna-
Martin said.
The minister said that.more
than 13 per cent of annual
births are to teenage mothers,
and that out of every eight
births to an adolescent mother


there is a second birth.
"This is indeed a vicious
cycle. These young persons are
unequipped to be parents and
are unable to provide a sound
foundation for the child
because, after all, they too are
mere children," Mrs Hanna-
Martin said.
She said government's PACE
programme, while providing
access to continued education
for teenage mothers, also
attempts to help these young
women and assist them with
family life matters.
"Our intention is to also focus
on leading these young women
through the doors of PACE,"
Mrs Hanna-Martin said.
The minister also voiced con-
cern about the growth of vio-
lence in the country.


"Many Bahamians are living
in homes where violence is a
common occurrence and
women and children are the
ones who are most affected, and
the majority of the perpetrators
are men. It is a matter that hap-
pens behind close doors and
unfortunately due to the embar-
rassment many victims remain
silent and suffer in silence.
"Violence has a physical and
emotional effect on victims. It
also affects their ability to func-
tion effectively. They live in
constant fear, for even the
slightest unintended act or word
could trigger retaliation. It is
important to know, however,
that family violence is not a one

ken," said Mrs Hanna-Martin.

newly-named Cable Beach
Resort was undergoing a total
revamp of its games, coupled
with the purchase of innovative

other initiatives.
He said the initial $15 million

Baha Mar had committed to on

AN ATTORNEY and FNM
Senator has expressed concern
over Whether amendments to the
Stamp Tax Act could have such
"a chilling effect" on the con-
struction and property develop-
ment industries that, in plugging a
loophole, the increase in govern-
ment revenues will be offset by an
industry slowdown.
John Delaney, a partner in Hig-
gs & Johnson, said that in regard

reality of Baha Mar's commit-
ment coming to fruition.
Since concluding its Heads of
Agreement with the Govern-
ment six weeks ago, plus the
purchase of the Radisson Cable
Beach Resort and Philip
Ruffin's Wyndham Nassau
Resort and Nassau Beach
Hotel, Mr Sands said Baha Mar
had begun the process of reor-
ganisation and consolidation. A
number of departments were
already operating as. one,
including the Fort Lauderdale
sales office.
Mr Sands said a second
important thrust for the devel-
opers had been their efforts on

that a number of structural
changes had been made, and
hotel employees had partici-
pated in a two-week product
knowledge programme aimed
at getting associates to buy into
the concept of a single resort

uct offering.

FNM Senator says exchange

M By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
AN FNM Senator has described the 2005-2006 Budget as
"an example of missed opportunities to inspire small business-
es" and the wider business community, with "policy innovation"
totally absent.
John Delaney, an attorney and partner in Higgs & Johnson,
said a small business unit to provide business management
advice and resources for Bahamian start-up companies should
have been created as an accompaniment to the $2 million ven-
ture capital fund.
Describing a small business unit as "the ideal facilitator"
through which small businesses and start-ups could access the
venture capital fund, Mr Delaney said both the Bahamas Agri-
cultural and Industrial Corporation (BAIC) and Bahamas
Development Bank (BDB) could not deliver the sort of services
his proposal could.
In his address to the Senate, Mr Delaney said the small busi-
ness unit would provide business management training pro-

TRADING activity contin-
ues to be brisk in the
Bahamian market as more
investors seek out equities as
a means to generate a higher
rate of return, as opposed to
certificates of deposit (CDs)
or investments linked to the
Prime Rate.
For the week, over 54,000
shares changed hands and 10
out of the 19 listed stocks
traded, of which three
advanced, three declined and

Volume leader for the

COMPANY NEWS

Bahamas Waste (BWL) -
For the 2005 first quarter
BWL realised growth of 17
per cent in net income, which
increased from $94,600 in the
year-before period to total
$110,700.
Sales grew by $87,500 or
7.46 per cent to total $1.3 mil-
lion, while cost of sales
increased by $27,500 or 3.63
per cent to total $783,000.
The gross profit margin rose
from 35.6 per cent in the 2004
first quarter to 37.9 per cent
for the same period in 2005.
Earnings per share grew by
$0.01 to total $0.03 as at
March 31, 2005.
This past week, BWL's
share price fell by $0.10 to
close at a new 52-week low
of $1.40. The inability of the
garbage disposal company to
"snag" any new long-term
contracts in recent times, in
order to achieve any sus-
tained growth to its bottom
line, has been a cause of con-
cern to some investors.
During the first quarter,
BWL officially opened its
medical waste treatment facil-
ity, which will cater to the
proper disposal of waste
products from hospitals and
clinics. The revenue-generat-
ing capacity of the new facil-
ity will depend on BWL's
ability to obtain contracts


from the Government as well
as the operators of private
clinics.

THE TRIBUNE


MONDAY, JUNE 27, 2005, PAUL 3B


FROM page one


Bahamian ports and private
islands, said it had "serious con-
cerns" with the different time-
lines for introducing the US
passport rules that discriminate
against this nation and the
Caribbean.
In a statement, the ICCL
said: "The International Coun-
cil of Cruise Lines has serious
concerns with these timelines
as it does not allow sufficient
time for travellers to comply
with the requirements, and
treats the Caribbean, Bermuda
and Central and South America
unfairly.
"The Caribbean is the most
heavily visited cruise destina-
tion in ithe world, accounting
for about 45 per cent of all
cruise ship visits. In many
instances, cruise passengers
travelling to the Caribbean have
already booked their cruises for
2006.
"Currently, the State Depart-
ment estimates that only 20 per
cent or less of all Americans
have passports."
The Western Hemisphere
Travel Initiative (WHTI),
introduced by the Department
of Homeland Security, will
require all US citizens to pos-
sess a passport "or other accept-
ed document" when they return
from travelling to the Bahamas
and the Caribbean, eliminating
the current passport exemption.
However, this requirement is
being introduced on December
31, 2005, for travel to the
Bahamas and the Caribbean,
while US visitors to Canada and
Mexico will only need to have a
passport from December 31,
2006, onwards.
This could effectively give
Mexican ports-of-call an advan-
tage over the Bahamas for one
year, as US cruise passengers
could opt for voyages that call
at Cozumel and Cancun and
cut-out this nation and its more
onerous travel requirements.
The ICCL said it had sup-
ported the mandatory passport
change as a policy provision,
acknowledging the need for
passenger safety and security
and Washington's border con-
cerns.
However, the ICCL added
that it had asked the Bush
administration that "sufficient
time be allotted to allow for the
public to understand the new
rules, and for the industry to be
able' to communicate the new


Passports
requirements to their customers
and, most importantly, for the
public to obtain their pass-
ports".
The ICCI said: "There is no
basis for treating travellers to
the Caribbean, Bermuda and
Central and South Americans


any differently from others.
Implementation of all phases of
the WHTI should be delayed
until January 2008.
"Delaying the implementa-
tion date will give much needed
time for the federal govern-
ment, the travel industry and,
most importantly, the travelling
public, to adapt to the new pass-
port programme."


Stamp Tax surcharge

FROM page one

approvals and "tidying up matters required would have been
addressed by then".
The Objects and Reasons section of the Stamp Tax Act amend-
ments describe the surcharge provision as "important, as it will
enable the Treasury to collect revenue more quickly after an instru-
ment or transaction has been executed".
The amendments allow the Treasurer to remit, fully or partly, any
surcharge paid if he is satisfied that failure to stamp any instrument
was not "wilful or with an intent to defraud".
However, a declaration was first required by the parties involved,
and Mr Delaney said this was a further piece of burden and red tape
imposed on businesses.
While accepting that the Government needs to raise more rev-
enue, Mr Delaney described the decision to impose 4 per cent
stamp duty. on all non-real estate assets of companies being sold,
apart from cash and bank deposits, as the Government extending the
tax base.
He said: "You have a broadening of the tax base, and in that con-
text it is not accurate to refer to it as plugging a loophole.
"You did not have tax on these other assets before, only a tax on
the realty. This is an expansion of the tax base."
Mr Delaney said the new 4 per cent duty could make it "more
challenging" for Bahamian companies who believed a merger with
other businesses was the only way to survive and prepare themselves
for international competition.
He added: "It is unfortunate that it comes at a time when Bahami-
an businesses might need merge with others when faced with glob-
al competition or regional competition in respect to the CSME."
The amendment, which will see 4 per cent duty paid on assets such
as goodwill, inventory, receivables and equipment, will be levied
when Bahamian companies are bought by non-resident firms, in
addition to Bahamian to Bahamian deals.
The amendments also seek to plus tax evasion loopholes involv-
ing trusts, where land and property were sold through changing the
beneficiaries of the trust that owned them, or appointing the own-
er as trustee. Both methods have been used to circumvent stamp tax
payments.
Mr Delaney said the Bahamas' international trusts would not be
impacted by the amendment, the only effect being for those trusts
that held Bahamian property or real estate as assets.

Both the Bahamas Hotel
Association (BHA) and
Caribbean Hotel Association
(CHA) have expressed con-
cerns about the negative impact
the US passport policy could
have for this nation's tourism
industry.
A study prepared for the
CHA by the World Travel and
Tourism Council (WTTC)
found that in a worst-case sce-
nario, the Bahamas could lose
13,134 tourism jobs and $446
million in per annum earnings -
some 21.7 per cent of its cur-
rent earnings total if the US
policy was adopted as is.
The WTTC survey found the


Bahamas had the region's most
US-reliant tourism industry,
with 86.6 per cent of visitors
coming from that nation. About
25 per cent of all US visitors to
the Bahamas currently did not
have a passport.
For the first quarter 2005, the
Bahamas attracted the region's
highest number of cruise pas-
sengers, with some 908,976 vis-
itors setting foot in this nation.
This, though, was a 2.4 per cent
decline on the 2004 compara-
tive, while stopover visitors
were down 4.2 per cent at
394,744.
The BHA has expressed par-
ticular concern that the exist-


ing US rules could affect its
'impulse' traveller business from
Florida, as many in this catego-
ry travelled without a passport.
Also among the categories that
could be especially hard hit
were travellers attending con-
ferences and meetings, as they
made their travel plans months
in advance.
Prime Minister Perry Christie
appealed to US Ambassador
John Rood that the Bahamas
be given a one-year extension to
the current December 31, 2005,
deadline.
Mr Rood was "cautiously
optimistic" this could be
achieved.

grammes, advice and mentor-
_L ing to existing and start-up busi-
nesses.
MAE, He added that the venture
rnge capital fund, which had its initial
government funding increased
ions from $1 million in the 2004-2005
uch Budget through the injection of
742, another $1 million this time
the around, was not an "innova-
tion" as it already existed.
Mr Delaney said the Gov-
ernment also needed to elimi-
nate the bureaucracy and red
tape that constantly frustrated
Bahamian businesses, pointing
to statistics that showed it took
179 days to get into business in
this nation compared to three
to five days in the US and seven
days in Canada.
S Calling for a "one-stop-shop"
for Bahamian businesses, he
a added: "Beyond a resource cen-
se tre of the kind I mentioned
se regarding a small business unit,
S' there needs to be a fast tracking
of all necessary approvals for
to the establishment of any busi-
ness in the Bahamas by
:)e Bahamians.
6, "Bahamian business enter-
S prise requires no less a focus
ad than foreign investment in the
Bahamas. This is especially so at
nt this time, as the Bahamas faces
trade liberalisation that would
-e increase competition for our
local businesses. It is not right to
roll out a red carpet for the for-
eign investor, while rolling up
the Bahamian investor in red
tape."
Mr Delaney said businesses
in rival Caribbean countries had
a head start" over their
Bahamian counterparts through
their ability to access foreign
capital.
Exchange control regulations
were "hindering the ability of
Bahamian businesses to become
stronger", while Caribbean
rivals were becoming more
competitive.
Mr Delaney said the pace of
exchange control liberalisation
had to be increased, and added
that the proposal approved by
government to halve the 25 per
cent premium paid on every $1
they invested abroad to 12.5 per
cent "does not go far enough"
at a time when the state of the
foreign exchange reserves
allowed the administration to
do more.
The FNM Senator also hinted
that the Bahamas was not get-
ting value for money from its
education system, which this


Budget's 'missed


opportunities' for


business sector


coming fiscal year was due to
receive $216 million or 18 per
cent of the Budget.
The Bahamas' national aver-
age for the BGCSE pass was a
'D', while in Barbados the com-
parable average grade was a
'D'. Mr Delaney praised the
Minister of Education's
announcement that a Techni-
cal and Vocational Education
and Training (TVET) frame-
work was being developed, but
urged that it be developed
quickly.
The FNM Senator also called
upon the Government to revis-
it its policy towards the
Bahamas Trade Commission,
which in 2005-2006 will see its
Budget cut-by 62.5 per cent,
going from $40,000 in the year
now ending to $15,000. This was
despite the Government asking
the Commission to assess the
whole issue of the Caribbean
Single Market and Economy
(CSME).
Mr Delaney said many
Bahamian companies were only
now beginning to get to grips
with the CSME and its impli-
cations, particularly those sec-
tors protected from interna-
tional competition under the
National Investment Policy.
The Right of Establishment,
which was not covered by the
Bahamas' reservation on the
free movement of people,
would have allowed CARI-
COM nationals to enter this
market as self-employed per-
sons and establish companies
with the same rights as Bahami-
ans.
Mr Delaney said: "The effect,
amongst other things, would be
that areas under the National
Investment Policy presently
reserved for Bahamians would
be wide open for CARICOM
nationals to participate, as of
right, in the Bahamas without
any immigration or other
restriction, and on the same
terms as Bahamians.
"That would apply to the taxi
business, beauty salon or bar-


ber shops, auto repair service,
fishing, retail shops of any kind,
wholesale shops of any kind,
real estate sale and rental agen-
cies.
"Obviously, all sectors of our
business community must
understand the impact of such
trade agreements, and be
afforded time to prepare to
meet the challenges.
"That preparation might
mean new capital investment in
their business, investment in


additional training, implemen-
tation of new technology,
merging with other local
businesses, and generally get-
ting in shape to survive compe-
tition."
Mr Delaney also called for
"serious corrective action" to
reverse the Bahamas' ever-
increasing national debt and fis-
cal deficit, which in 2005-2006
was predicted to reach 37.7 per
cent of gross domestic product
(GDP).

levied on the land/home's com-
bined value rather than separate-


Amendments
ly, "the appearance of netting
more taxes might be illusory if it


has an adverse impact for the con-
struction industry".
But he added: "This is
something that will just have
to be carefully managed by the
Government is changes have
to be made."
The Stamp Tax Act amend-
ments could have a further
impact on the Bahamian real
estate and construction indus-
try through Clause eight,
which is described as "quite
significant" in the Bill's
Objects and Reasons.
Permission for foreigners to
purchase Bahamian land,
.property and businesses, under
the Exchange Control Regu-
lations Act and International
Persons Landholding Act,
would be withdrawn if the
amount of Stamp Tax due on
the deal "is not paid within a
. year".
Approval, though, will be
"automatically reinstated"
once payment of the Stamp
STax owed and the penalty sur-
charge was made.
Mr Delaney questioned
whether the imposition of tax
on- construction contracts was
"appropriate" given that the
.industry had only just
"rebounded" from two diffi-
cult years.
He added that whether pur-.
chasers were Bahamian .or,
Snon-Bahamian, the amend-


ments meant that it would no
longer be possible to evade or
minimise Stamp Tax payments
through selling land and lots
in advance of construction
contracts being drawn up.
The amendments have also
strengthened the fines that can
be levied for Stamp Tax eva-
sion. One new provision is that
attorneys and real estate sales-
men and brokers can be fined
$5,000 or sentenced to one
year's imprisonment if they
use "appropriate" for their
own use, without client knowl-
edge, funds that have were
deposited or entrusted to .them
to pay stamp tax on a transac-
tion.
Meanwhile, the Bill increas-
es the fine for. the production
in court of unstamped instru-
ments to $500 from $20. The
Objects and Reasons section.
of the Bill says: .
"The mischief that this pro-:
vision seeks to cure is quite
obvious to those involved in.
the judicial system either as
judges, magistrates or legal
practitioners."
The penalty for evasion in.
respect to the issuance. of
receipts has been increased to
$1,000,; while the fine .for
fraudulent non-disclosure of
facts,required in an instrument
has risen fram. $2,000 ..to
$5,000.

Miller goes under the Hammer


By BRENT STUBBS
)- Senior Sports Reporter
RICHARD "the Hammer" Pitt
shook off the memory of his loss to
Bahamas lightweight champ Meacher
"Pain" Major with a six-round over
Duran "Hands of Stone" Miller, solid-
ifying a possible rematch for the title.
The taller and quicker Pitt was too
much for Miller to handle as the two
battled it out in the main event of the
First Class Promotions' "Parking Lot
Brawl" on Saturday night. The show
was postponed last week because of
the inclement weather. '
This time, however, Pitt hammered
Miller to convince the judges that he
deserved the decision. He did it using
his jab to get inside and countered
with a series of combinations to the
head and the body.
"I just sat back, listened to what he
had to say and I came out and did
what I had to do," said Pitt, who was
ahead on points on all three of the
judges' cards. "All he is is muscles.
He was looking for that one big punch.
But that couldn't workout."
Shaking off a couple of low blows,
fighting for most of one round without
his mouthpiece and clowning and
dancing around in the ring after one or
two rounds with Minus Jr, Pitt dedi-
cated the victory to his two young
daughters, Rashan and Deshan.
After the victory where he contin-
ued to entertain the fans, dancing with
the ring girls, Pitt turned his attention
to Major and a possible rematch for


Pitt takes out 'Hands of Stone'


the Bahamas lightweight title.
"Everybody know the last time me
and Meacher Major fought, Meacher
got the better of me. But with this title
shot, I'm looking to even the score at
1-1 and then I'm looking to give him a
rematch," said Pitt, who admitted that
he was not properly ready for the ini-
tial meeting with Major, who out-
classed him with his hand speed.
Before Pitt can get the rematch with
Major, who was on hand to watch the
show, he will have to go up against
David "the Pacesetter" Wallace.
Wallace, back in action for the first
time in more than four months, had
an all-out war with Anthony "Psycho"
Woods.
But in the end, Wallace was award-
ed a split decision as he managed to get
in enough shots at the end of each of
the four rounds to pull off the victory.
"I wasn't fully trained for this fight
because I was away on some more
important family business," he said.
"But I promised that I will be back in
training and better prepared to fight,
because I want the lightweight title."
It was obvious that Wallace was not
the fighter that fans have been accus-
tomed to seeing.
There were moments throughout
the fight that he had a chance to stop
Woods, but because he did not have
the energy they ended up tangling up


and slugging it out.
"I was pleased with the perfor-
mance, knowing that I haven't worked
out in a long time," Wallace said. "But
I know I have a lot of work to do to
get back in shape."
The only other fight on the card saw
Kaito "Red Lion" Ferguson and Ivan
"Terrible" Moxey go head-to-head
and toe-to-toe with each other for four
rounds.
But the shorter Moxey managed to
get inside, flooring Ferguson in the
first round with a left-right hook and
stunning him in the third with a couple
of shots, the long one being a left
hook.
That was all that Moxey needed to
impress the judges for the victory.
"The fight was a really good fight.
He fought a good fight, but it didn't go
as I expected," Moxey said. "But I
will give him a rematch anytime he
want because he's a good fighter."
Only three fights took place on the
card that was delayed by more than a
hour, turning away some of the fans.
There were quite a few who decided
to watch from the roof of near by
houses or in the trees than pay to
come in the gates.
While two fights did not materal-
ize, Elkena "Ali" Saundersa and
Damian "the Blade" Tinker put on
an excellent three-round exhibition.


Athletes in qualification



for CAC championships


* By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior sports reporter
TREVOR Barry soared his way
into a spot on the Colinalmperial Cen-
tral American and Caribbean cham-
pionships team on Friday evening.
Barry outshone the rest of the field
at the BAAA national championships,
clearing 2.14m for the win.
The field comprised of Barry, Jamal
Wilson, James Rolle and Jahmal Stra-
chan.
But, Barry was the sole competitor
to enter the competition from the
beginning; the others opted to come in
at various hits.
This proved to fatal for Rolle, who
has a seasons best of 2.12m, per-
formed earlier at the Odd Distance
meet.
He was only able to clear 1:98m for
a second place finish, which he tied
with Wilson.
The qualifying standards in the
event was 2.13m.
After dominating the high jump


event, Barry ran across the field to a
heated long jump event.
The long jump runway was filled
with competitive spirits, all hoping to
surpass the qualifying standards. But
speed and technique played a pivotal
role in determing the winner.
The packed field was filled with
juniors and seniors, all looking to
make qualifying standards for the var-
ious teams.
In the first round of competition
Osbourne Moxey, Leevan Sands, Bar-
ry and Jaydian Miller rose to the occa-
sion, all jumping beyond the seven
point marker.
But Sands' jump of 7.94m in the
final round sealed the deal for him.
The jump, performed on the second
attempt, made the crowd rise to their
feet in applause.
A powerful final phase and con-
nection with the board took Moxey
further than the eight point marking,
but the hard-hitting connection
smeared the foul board.
Trying not to show disappointment.


Moxey jogged back to the field, know-
ing that he had to regroup.
For Barry, speed played a factor in
his distance. Barry faltered on sever-
al of his jumps, sometimes jumping
off the wrong foot.
He said: "I am not to satisfied with
my performance in long jump, but the
high jump event was a little pleasing.
"I didn't do a season's best in either
of the events, but coming back and
performing in front of a home crowd
is always exciting.
"I think I could have done a lot bet-
ter if I didn't have the two events on
the same day, but sometimes these
things happen. I just wasn't that pre-
pared.
"I am looking forward to CAC, it
will be great to come home and take a
medal for the Bahamas."
In the men's triple jump, Antonio
Saunders hopped, skipped and
jumped his way to victory on 15.89m.
Miller was second with 15.21m,
while Dominic Goodman finished
third with 14.89m.

Williams picks up




where he left off


'- By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

BACK after a year's
'absence, Mackey Williams
continued where he left off,
pulling away from a depleted
field of young challengers to
win another men's divisional
title in the Bahamas Olympic
Association's Olympic Day
kace.
Williams, who missed last
4ear's race because of a com-
nitment overseas, was more
:han a match for his younger
ivalsias he got an early lead
n the race that started at the
'Queen Elizabeth Sports Cen-
lre and finished in the
rAtlaitis parking lot on Par-
'adise Island.

Surged
^ "I was really looking for
)Oneil and Jason Williams, but
rafter they were not in the race
vI just decided to go for it,"
said Williams, who surged to
p;the front from the start and
o:stayed ahead throughout the
*course in the Saturday morn-
ing race.
2 He clocked 26 minutes and
,seven seconds, leaving his
^nearest rival, Christopher
! Cartwright, a considerable


distance behind.
"I wasn't too concerned
about them," said Williams,
who has been riding with the
New Providence Cycling
Association to stay in fit for
the seldom-run road races. "I
knew that if Oneil and Jason
wasn't here, I won't have any
problems."
Oneil Williams was in
Grand Bahama, where he
competed in the Bahamas
Association of Athletic Asso-
ciations' National Open Track
and Field Championships.
Cartwright, the CC Sweet-
ing Senior High School half-
miler, tried to provide some
of the push along with a cou-
ple of young competitors. But
once they got on the Bay
Street stripe heading to the
bridge, he could only see
Williams in the distance.
"I tried to catch him, but
he was too far ahead of me,"
Cartwright said. "But I did
my best to go after him."
Cartwright would cross the
line in 28.35, in a race that
had some confusion at the
end as one of the younger
competitors who was on
course to finish second -
made a wrong turn and head-
ed back over the bridge.
The error enabled veteran


Ashland Murray, the coach of
the young competitors, to
surge into third in 28.57.
"It was unfortunate what
happened at the end, but he
didn't know where to make
the turn," Murray said. "I did
my best to go out with them,
but there was nothing that I
could do. I just stayed with
them."
But Murray said he was dis-
appointed in the number of
competitors who turned out.
He said there are a lot of
competitors out there running
on a daily basis, but when the
few road races come along,
they refuse to come out and
participate.

Reclaim
The women's section of the
race also saw a former cham-
pion come back to reclaim her
title.
Jessica Ferguson was able
to surge ahead and hold off
Sherry Murray-Francis to win
in 35.15. Murray-Francis was
second in 40.23 and Juliette
Rolle crossed the finish line
in third in 51.18.
"It was a very good race,
but it 's obvious that I have to
get in shape. I'm a bit too
fat," admitted an Ferguson.


"But I went out there and I
tried to stay out front,
because I knew Sherry was
coming. She's been training a
lot, so I didn't want her to
beat me."
Murray-Francis is a former
distance runner who is mak-
ing her return to the local
scene after more than a
decade's hiatus. She enjoyed
the race and is eagerly look-
ing forward to further races.
"I've been training a lot
with Stephen Murray at 5am,
so I'm getting back in shape,"
she stressed. "I just wanted
to go out there and see how I
felt because I haven't run in a
long time. I was very pleased
with my performance, but I
still have some more work to
do."
The BOA, celebrating
another world-wide Olympic
Day, also hosted a walk seg-
ment that started from Mon-
tagu Beach and finished at the
Atantis parking lot.
In the end, the result was
the same on the men's side,
as Philip Moss scorched the
field for a repeat victory with
James Brown settling for sec-
ond. Danny Wilson was
third.
On the ladies' side, Bridget
McKay finished in first place.

AFTER shutting down half
way through the 100 metres in
the preliminary rounds, Derrick
Atkins blazed down the home
stretch to qualify for the Coli-
nalmperial Central American and
Caribbean championships.
Chandra Sturrup turned up the
heat in the finals of the women's
century, putting on a season's best
performance.
The powerful Atkins left noth-
ing to chance in the finals, storm-
ing through the line in 10.28 sec-
onds.
The time is the "B" qualifying
standard for the Colinalmperial
championships, set for the Inde-
pendence weekend.
He said: "I just wanted to go
through the rounds comfortably,
trying to knock off some of the
rust from not competing in a
while.
"I liked the race in the finals
better, from start to finish. I think
I had a pretty good race Icame
out of the blocks good and the
finish was very strong."
The field had to regroup, after
a false start, which forced several
of the runners to be more cau-
tious about their start.
Atkins added: "I wasn't to wor-
ried about the false start. I was
forced to run under false starts
this entire season, so having had
to do so tonight wasn't hard at
all."
The double sprinting victory
for Atkins was denied by nation-
al record holder Dominic


Atkins qualifies, season's best for Sturrup


Demeritte.
In a wind-aided victory,
Demeritte blazed to 20.77 sec-
onds for the win, just ahead of
Atkins, who ran 20.86 seconds.
Making his return to the track
was Troy McIntosh, who finished
the 200m in 20.87 seconds. The
field was narrowed down to three
competitors in the finals.
Sturrup's form and dominance
was clearly noted at the champi-
onships, after she crushed the
field in the women's 100m.
The national record holder had
a sluggish start in the preliminary
rounds, but quickly made up
ground on the field.
Although the start might have
prevented her from shaving off a
few seconds of her time in the
preliminary rounds, she was still
able to head into the finals with
the leading time of 11.33 seconds.
Sturrup came back later on that
evening to improved on her tim-
ing to win the event in 11.12 sec-
onds. Finishing in second was
Tamicka Clarke in 11.45 seconds,
Phillipa Arnett-Willie in 11.62
and Savetheda Fynes in 11.63 sec-
onds.
Sturrup said: "I wanted to
come here and run a really good
race, seeing that I would have to
be running in top shape in the
next few weeks. I am trying to
get back into world rankings, so I
hope I did a good job tonight.

from not being able to run last

SAVING the clash for the Colinalmperial
Central American and Caribbean champi-
onships, Tonique Williams-Darling opted not to
compete in the open women's 400m, leaving
the battle during the national championships
for Christine Amertil.
Although both competitors have already
attained "A" qualifying standards for the Coli-
nalmperial championships, Amertil took to the
track, adding spice to the event.

Seeded
Amertil had been seeded as the top runner in
the second heat on Friday evening, running a
time of 51.30 seconds for top markings heading
into the finals.
The field, which was mostly comprised of
junior athletes looking to qualify for the Junior
Pan American and World championships teams,
used Amertil as a feeder.
Amertil was able to run away with the finals
on a time of 51.40 seconds, with juniors Sasha
Rolle and Shakeitha Henfield coming in second
and third, with times of 55.24 seconds and 56.42
seconds, respectively.


had to refocus, come back and
run as hard as I can.
"I am coming out of the blocks
a lot better even my finish is a


lot better. I don't think I have the
whole technical aspect down like
I usually do in practice, but I am
coming around."


Both Rolle and Henfield surpassed qualifying
standards for the junior games, whose time was
set at 57.90 seconds.
The unexpected battle at the championships
saw Amertil and Williams-Darling go head-to-
head in the women's 200m.
The event, which both used to running, came
down to the wire in the finals with Williams-
Darling getting the better hand.
Williams-Darling ran 23.03 seconds into a
negative 2.8 wind for the win, with Amertil
crossing 12 seconds behind.
Phillipa Arnett-Willie was third with 24.14
seconds, and junior Nivea Smith finished in the
fourth spot with 24.60 seconds.
The two top times in the event were qualify-
ing times for the Colinalmperial championships.
With Debbie Ferguson unable to compete
at the games, a decision on the behalf of the
Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations
(BAAA) will have to be made as to who will
compete in the half lap at the championships.
So far, Williams-Darling and Amertil are the
only females to dip below the qualifying time.
Willie-Arnett has posted a fast time, which
draws her closer to the 'B' standards.
Both Williams-Darling and Amertil are top-
ranked in the world in the event, having posted
times of 49.55 seconds and 50.65 seconds.


Sturrup admitted to looking
forward to the season, having
meets in Paris this weekend.


For the first time in the history of the BAAA
national championships, the battle of Bahami-
an Olympians was seen.
The loaded 400m for men saw first time
Olympians take on the more experienced run-
ners.

Advance
World's top-ranked Andrae Williams and
Chris Brown had to ward off a feisty field to
advance through to the final rounds.
Just seconds separated the packed field in
the 400m.
From the start Brown took the lead, picking
up the stagger on the two outer lanes.
Avard Moncur wasn't about to be left behind,
striding in the back of Brown for second place.
With just 100m left, Williams came reeling in,
powering past Aaron Cleare, Moncur
and Brown for the win in a time of 45.33 sec-
onds.
Brown's time of 45.43 seconds gave him a
second-place finish, with Cleare in 45.90 sec-
onds and Moncur in 46.01 seconds.
Nathaniel Mckinney and Dennis Darling bet-
tered their times in that final, posting times
of 46.32 seconds and 46.64 seconds respective-
ly.

THE TRIBUNE


Plagiarism has been
defined as "to steal and
use the ideas or writings
of another as one's own"
by the American Her-
itage Dictionary (second edition).
The operative word here is to steal.
Stealing is a criminal offence under
our laws so it would seem that one
who plagiarises is akin to a criminal,
in my view.
Dr Rodney Smith, a Harvard grad-
uate and former college president in
the USA, has admitted that he pla-
giarised a speech, by almost one
third, penned by an American col-
lege professor.
He has apologised, and some
members of the College of the
Bahamas have called for forgiveness
and a second chance. This is totally
unacceptable, of course, in all of the
circumstances.of the instant case.
As leader of the College of the
Bahamas, Dr Smith's role is akin to
that of Caesar's wife, Calpurnia. Not
only must she be clean, but she must
be seen to be clean. He is no ordinary
run-of-the-mill member of academia.
He must take full and complete
responsibility for his plagiarism.


Some have lamented that to fire
him would result in difficulties for
he and his family! This was so ludi-
crous that I could not believe my ears
or my eyes.
As a former member of the
Bahamas Bar, I paid, and still am
paying, a heavy price for a gross act
of malfeasance over a decade ago.
Who cares that my career and my
own family were destroyed? I have
found it next to impossible to secure
gainful employment requiring a
degree of trust and integrity.
Thanks be to God that He allowed
me to rehabilitate myself, come to
my senses and paid compensation for
the errors of my ways. The same
should and must be applied to the
saga of Dr Rodney Smith.
Dr Smith is related to Frank Smith
(PLP-St Thomas More), the son-in-
law of college chairman Franklyn
Wilson. No matter his familial con-
nections, however, plagiarism is pla-
giarism. He has to resign or be fired.
It is as simple as that.
Justice must remain, as she is, blind
to individual pleas and bogus apolo-
gies. To God then, Who does not
plagiarise, in all things, be the glory.


ORTLAND H. BODIE JR



IT is staggering that supposedly
intelligent people at the College of
the Bahamas continue to try to find a
way of wriggling out of the latest dif-
ficulty regarding Dr Rodney Smith.
These people, with degrees which
proclaim them "intellectuals", are
obviously lacking common sense in
the way they consider such crucial
matters.
To blame the press for the mis-
takes of people who ought to know
better is truly pitiful. The press did a
wonderful job in this instance
because it told the public what need-
ed to be known.
Shooting the messenger is no
answer. The only solution to the
Smith problem is for him to depart.
Why a committee has to be appoint-
ed to consider the obvious I don't
know. No wonder that academia is so
discredited. It doesn't have the moral
strength to face up to the truth.
D Edwards, Nassau
******


SO typical of the academic world
to appoint an "international" com-
mittee of eggheads to consider a sub-
ject all intelligent people decided
upon the day Dr Smith's problem
came to light.
No doubt these academic worthies
will sit round a table endlessly dis-
cussing the ins and outs of the prob-
lem, nodding their heads and wring-
ing their hands, until they find a form
of words that best suits all parties
concerned.
The college has obviously chosen
this course because it wants to be
one step removed from the decision
to fire Dr Smith, if indeed this is the
course the committee decides to take.
When will the committee report
back? If it's anything like the gov-
ernment's various committees and
commissions, it probably never will.
Bemused Reader
Eastern Road



I AGREE that Mr Perry Christie
now needs to be very careful indeed
about his various undertakings over


the next few months. I also agree
that a tense general election cam-
paign might not be the best thing for
his health. Perhaps the PLP should
do the right thing and begin the
process of succession in the near
future if it is felt that Mr Christie is
unfit to continue following his illness.
CCPR, Freeport
000******

THE FNM is wise to look beyond
Mr Christie as they sort out their own
leadership problems. I shall be very
surprised if Mr Christie is in charge of
the PLP when the next election day
comes around.
Harmony Hill
******

I NOTICE that Mr Christie is back
to work early, no doubt in response
to INSIGHT's speculation about his
political future. Whether he is wise to
subject himself to the stress is a mat-
ter for his doctors, but I would have
thought it far better for him to keep
his head down for a while.

leadership, so he must await a
consensus among those who
want him back."
The Ingraham issue is a big
one for the party to confront
in more ways than one..
By having him back, the par-
ty would be acknowledging
that the new generation is not
up to the job. Furthermore,
such a move would be inter-
preted by many as a backward
step.
With such a huge question-
mark hanging over the future
of Prime Minister Perry
Christie since his stroke, it
seems possible or even proba-
ble that the PLP will be led by
a younger man when the 2007
election comes round.
Tourism Minister Obie
Wilchcombe is now being tout-
ed as a possible successor, and
he is likely to bring dynamism
and determination to the job.
Vincent Peet is also in the reck-
oning, though less empatically
so than the affable Obie. Both,
however, represent the new
order and both carry the bloom
of (relative) youth.
"If this happens, does the
FNM really want to be led by a
member of the older genera-
tion?" asked the FNM source.
"It is something we need to
consider very carefully, because
the young voters are now an
important part of all election
considerations."
It was against this backdrop
that Mr Foulkes, a father-of-
five with Cabinet experience
in several ministries, declared
his leadership ambitions last
week.
With 23 years of political
experience behind him he was
a member of the FNM Torch-
bearers at the age of 25 Mr
Foulkes is already a seasoned
campaigner, yet young enough
to be considered one of the
post Christie-Ingraham gener-
ation.

Interest

His keen interest in educa-
tion and youth activities also
gives him access to the pulse
of younger Bahamians.
Having served in a variety of
capacities under Sir Cecil Wal-
lace-Whitfield, Sir Kendal
Isaacs, Mr Ingraham and Mr
Turnquest, Mr Foulkes has
been able to see the FNM
evolve from its beginnings to


the force it has become.
In the process, he has been
inculcated with the movemen-
t's underlying beliefs, which
include a departure from the
narrower racial perspectives of
the PLP towards a more inclu-
sive mindset.
A Foulkes supporter told
INSIGHT: "We believe it is
time more white Bahamians
became actively involved in
politics. There are some really
promising potential candidates
out there, whites with ability
who ought to be brought into
the picture."
Having said that, there are
still doubts about the electabil-
ity as leader of the party's
most promising white. But Mr
Symonette's "problem" as a
possible white contender is not
so much his colour as his fami-
ly background.
In the minds of many, he is
still associated with the Bay
Street Boys, who are best-
remembered among older
black FNMs for their selfish-
ness, arrogance and greed.
Although his father, Sir
Roland Symonette, was regard-
ed fondly by all colours, there is
still a residual suspicion
towards all those associated
with the old UBP.
This, however, is unlikely to
deter the lawyer-businessman if
he really wants to continue his
family's involvement in politics
at the highest level. As the only


FNM to retain a New Provi-
dence seat in the last election,
he can never be discounted as a
possible leader, whatever the
echoes from the past.
At this point, then, it is pos-
sible that Mr Ingraham, Mr
Symonette and Mr Turnquest
will be in the ring with Mr
Foulkes when the bell sounds
for the first round of the lead-
ership battle.

Contenders

If Zhivargo Laing, Carl
Bethel and Kenneth Russell
also choose to "mix it" with the
top contenders, there could be
some very interesting
exchanges before victory is
declared.
Meanwhile, political
observers are considering all
the possible permutations when
the PLP and FNM finally
square up at the polls in two
years time.
Will it be Wilchcombe v
Foulkes, Peet v Symonette or a
reprise of the veteran heavies,
Christie v Ingraham?
Only the party conventions
will tell. Then the country will
wait eagerly for the opening
bell, and possibly one of the
most significant election bat-
tles in Bahamian political his-
tory.

THE TIBUN MONAY, UNE 2, 205,SPGEH3


D ion Foulkes last
week officially
announced his
bid for the lead-
ership of the Free National
Movement.
Mr Foulkes said his decision
had come after much reflec-
tion.
Mr Foulkes was formerly
the deputy leader of the FNM
but resigned his post soon
after the 2002 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.


EXTRADITION moves
against seven men wanted by
the United States must pro-
ceed quickly, the Justices of
the Court of Appeal ruled last
week.
Justice Dame Joan Sawyer,
president of the Court of
Appeal, along with Justices
Mustapha Ibrahim and Lorris
Ganpatsingh, who read the
judgment, ruled that the
appeal sought by the Bahamas
and United States govern-
ments should be allowed, and
that the May 10 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.
The Court of Appeal jus-
tices were ruling in the case of
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.
The men are represented by
a legal team lead by attorney
Maurice Glinton, who said
that it was contacting solici-
tors to make applications to
the Privy Council.
The team, which also
includes Henry Bostwick QC,
Godfrey Pinder, Jerone
Roberts, and Paul Moss, is
seeking the release of their
clients on a constitutional
motion that the men are being
detained contrary to Article 19
(3) of the constitution, which
states that any person being
detained and not brought
before the court in a reason-
able time, should be released.


GOVERNMENT back
benchers announced last week
that they would sponsor an
amendment to the Prime Min-
ister's Pension Act, 1997, fol-
lowing the debacle during
Monday night's session of par-
liament.
During the session, govern-
ment MPs called in to ques-
tion whether North Abaco MP
Hubert Ingraham should be
receiving a pension as former
prime minister.
In response to remarks
made by Mr Ingraham, Mount
Moriah MP Keod Smith said
that he, together with the MP
for Holy Cross Sidney Stubbs
and his "learned friends from
the back bench," will sponsor
a Bill to amend the Act in such
a way that will prevent former
prime ministers from collect-
ing a pension while still serving
in parliament.
The announcement came
after Mr Smith questioned Mr
Ingraham in parliament as to
why he was receiving a full
former prime minister's pen-

Quotes of the Week


"I am deeply concerned about the lack of
direction that characterises our country under
the current PLP government.
"The Bahamian people deserve better. The
fresh breeze has gone stale and help and hope
have been turned to helplessness."
Former FNM MP Dion Foulkes
announces his decision to make a bid for the
Free National Movement's leadership.
"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 constitu-
tional matters that have been raised legiti-
mately. Not only that, but it was raised by cit-
izens of the Bahamas, who have the inherent
protection of the Constitution. Clearly, it was
a good arguable case, because it convinced a
judge of the Supreme Court of the Bahamas.
You must err on the side of the protection of
the citizen."

week's Court of Appeal ruling that upheld a
treaty between the Bahamas and US gov-
ernments to extradite a group of seven men

wanted for trial in America.
"Some have chosen to interpret, in their own
way, the lack of a public statement from the
council until now and that is their right.
"Given that some very sensitive matters are
the focus of our attention, the council has
approached the issue with great deliberation
and discretion, bringing to bear all of the
expertise represented on the council."
College of the Bahamas chairman
Franklyn Wilson on the council's decision to
establish a panel to look into the plagiarism
committed by COB president Rodney Smith.
"We believe that this untrue (that former
prime minister Hubert Ingraham is not col-
lecting his $28,000 MP's salary), because the
only way it stops, is if he writes to the speaker
and says 'don't pay it to me, send it some-
where else', and there is no record in this
House that he has done that."
Keod Smith announces that he and a
group of PLP back benchers will sponsor a
bill to amend the Prime Minister's Pension
Act 1997.


ber of the House.
Mr Ingraham has said that
he is not collecting the $28,000
salary for a sitting MP.


A SPECIAL advisory panel
including international experts
has been convened to deter-
mine if action should be taken
against College of the


Bahamas president Rodney
Smith, who admitted to pla-
giarsing a portion of a speech
he delivered during COB's
honours convocation.
The advisory panel is made
up of: Anglican Archbishop
Drexel Gomez; Bahamas
ambassador to the United
Nations Dr Paulette Bethel;
vice-chancellor Emeritus of
the University of the West


Indies, Professor Rex Nettle-
ford; president-elect of John
Carroll University in Cleve-
land, Ohio, Father Robert
Niehoff; and retired justice
Joseph Strachan, who chairs
the panel.
Dr Smith has not tendered
his resignation, nor has any-
one with the relevant author-
ity requested it.
