Bahamas marking

its Independence

TODAY marks the 32nd
anniversary of the Bahamas'
independence and the colours
of the flag can be seen all
around town.
As the independence cele-
brations start, people say they
feel proud just to be Bahami-
Yesterday was National Pride
Day, and featured a number of
authentic Bahamian experi-
ences, awakening the spirit of
Rawson Square was Tilled
with food, music, artifacts and
dances all unique to the
The festivities began at nine
with the singing of the National
Both tourists and Bahamians
came out to enjoy the cultural
A family from New York said
they are glad they came to the
Bahamas during the indepen-
dence celebrations because they
enjoyed taking part in such a
vibrant culture.
A Nassau man said that
"activities like these make me
more proud of my culture, and
even prouder to be Bahamian."
As Bahamians danced to the
beat of Junkanoo music pro-
vided by Barabas and the Tribe,
tourists snapped photos and did
a little rocking themselves.
Many Bahamian 'delicacies
were served and sold, including
conch fritters, coconut water
(with gin if one preferred),
coconut tarts, pineapple tarts,
macaroni, benny cake, peanut
cake, rum cake and daiquiris.
The Ministry of Youth Sports
and Culture sponsored the
event and the chefs provided

the pastries and other Bahami-
an delights to anyone interested
in sampling the goods for free.
At the event there were vari-
ous booths, displaying native
items such as jewellery, glass
blown art and delicacies as well
as storytelling from Claudette
"Cookie" Allen, and Bennet
Allen, to name a few.
Award winning Wyndham
Nassau Resort sous chef Wade,
Sweeting served the dish that
won him a gold medal: Crab
and conch fetticine, to the
delight of tasters.
Wood crafts, and conch shell
crafts by Bahamian artists were
also available for purchase.
Cynthia Knowles, who had
an independence items booth,
said "I am proud to be Bahami-
an and take part in this event.
SWhen I think of what it means
to be Bahamian I think of inde-
pendence. I think of the colours
of the flag, I think of freedom, I
think of how grateful I am to
be here." Ms. Knowles is also a
creator of arts and crafts.
Frankie, whose Junkanoo
booth was located on Rawson
Square north, said that
"although we claim to be an
independent nation, we aren't.
We import too many items, we
are becoming easily influenced
by American lifestyles, and
we often change our identity to
impress others."
Frankie, a member of
Barabas and the Tribe
Junkanoo group, also loved
"feeling independent" and
thought Bahamians felt the
same way. "We just don't realize
that we aren't as independent

RESORT destinations like the Bahamas
are popular among the under 21 set offering
"gorgeous beaches, crystal-clear water and
no-holds-barred partying," reported a Flori-
da newspaper.
The article, published in The St Peters-
burg Times, focused on the activities of
young American women under 21 at the
local bar and restaurant, Senor Frog's. It
also compares the Bahamas' nightlife to
the nightlife surrounding the Natalee Hol-
loway case in Aruba.

THE International Mone-

Bahamas to speed up mea-

2010 compared to its current

Police warn public to

take care at weekend

Tribune Staff Reporter
POLICE are urging the
public to "do all in its power"
this weekend to avoid adding
to the recent trend of drown-
ings and traffic fatalities over
holiday weekends.
During the excitement of
the Independence celebra-
tions, officers are asking

Bahamians and visitors "to be
each others' keepers" at the
beaches and on the streets.
"We want to warn persons
who may be going to the
beach to be careful, because

Hurricane Dennis smashes into

Cuba and approaches Mexico

CONTINUING to grow in
strength yesterday, hurricane
Dennis pounded Cuba as it
approached the Gulf of Mexico
and southern United States.
Dennis was upgraded to a
category four hurricane and was
travelling at 17mph yesterday
afternoon as it generated sur-
face winds of up to 150mph.
More wind and rain are
expected this Independence
weekend as a cloud cover from

Showers and brisk winds are
expected through Saturday.
By Sunday the winds are
expected to fall off a bit, and
on Monday conditions are
expected to return to near nor-

As the eye of Dennis trav-
eled over south and central
Cuba yesterday, it lost some
strength, and wind speeds were
reduced to 145mph.
The storm poured heavy rain
on Cuba, increasing the threat
of mudslides and flooding there.
Meteorologists expect Den-
nis to clear the north coast of
Cuba, and head for the Gulf of
Mexico and southern US some-
time between today and tomor-
"Once Dennis makes landfall
in the US the conditions may
change a bit," said chief meteo-
rologist Basil Dean.

The senator claimed that
Financial Services Minister
Allyson Maynard-Gibson has
displayed "total disrespect for
the institution by promoting the
services of an acting Registrar
General while there is a legiti-

General in place".
The Supreme Court ruled
that Elizabeth Thompson was

Mr Turnquest said that it is
up to the prime minister to act,
because "it now seems clear
that the minister with respon-

Gibson, is unwilling to, or inca-
pable of bringing resolution to
the matter."
He added: "Some attorneys
have refused to accept impor-

Dumping problem

A MAKESHIFT sign has

tons of industrial waste into the
A chain wire has also been
hung across the entrance, bar-

bulldozer continues to excavate
tons of fill from the park,

Bannister the president of the
Bahamas National Trust.
Bonefish Pond is one of four
national parks in New Provi-

at the Department of Environ-

that he was extremely disap-
pointed that there was such a
lack of communication between
the Department of Environ-
mental Health, the department
of Physical Planning, the Police
Force, and the Bahamas
National Trust (BNT).
"There was not the level of
help by the relevant agencies
here. This underscores the need
for one government agency for
the protection of the environ-
"Every agency should have
the power to enact and enforce
its laws. That is the power of
arrest, entry, closure and seizure

of machinery," he said.
Mr Pinder said that in order
to try and restrict the damage to
the extent that has been
incurred up to this point, his
office will be personally con-
tacting the relevant agencies
and authorities to ensure that
the defendants adhere to the
cease and desist order.


"It is unfortunate that we
have to react to a situation like
this, but unfortunately the gov-
ernment agency that issued this
order doesn't have the author-
ity to enact it. That is not suffi-

cient. Not for the 21st centu-
"If the proper legislation was
in place the machinery (D8)
would have been ceased and the
persons responsible hauled
before the courts," he said.
Eric Carey the director of
parks and science liaison for the
BNT said it now has to be
decided whether to try and
remove the waste deposited in,
the pond, or cordon off the pol-
luted area.
"This part here is ruined,
that's for sure. But now what
to do with it is what we have to
decide. Attempting to save a
portion of it could cause even
more damage," he said.

BAHAMIANS will mark the

including setting off fireworks.
Chief fire officer Walter

To ensure that everyone

"Persons should not play
games by doing those things
because it can become very
lethal and cause significant
damage to persons, homes or

At a press conference on Thursday, Mr
Mitchell gave the press an update on the
condition of the Bahamian medical stu-
dents in Jamaica, but was unable to say if
they were safe and well.
He explained that he was awaiting a
report from Mrs Hilton, who on Thursday
had spoken to only one student 'and was
unable to confirm the whereabouts of the

Mr Evans explained that
when fuel is being pumped and
fireworks are set off, the gas
vapour can be ignited and cause
a catastrophic situation.
When storing fireworks, they
should be held in a cool venti-
lated area, and kept away from
such areas as open flames, gen-
erator rooms, and water heaters.
Once fireworks are lit per-
sons should keep a safe distance
from them, at least 50 feet away.
Fireworks should not be held
in the hands when fired, but set
in suitable holding devices such
as sand pits.
"One of the most important
things we emphasised is that at
all times children ought to be
supervised. If they are not prop-
erly supervised they can cause
damage," said Mr Evans.

holiday weekend.
With the Bahamas proudly
hosting the CAC Games and a
number of other events hap-
pening on New Providence,
officers say they are "deter-
mined to ensure that everyone
is able to enjoy the festivities in
a crime-free environment."
Although police prefer not
to divulge specifics about their
security plan, Supt Hulan
Hanna said a contingent of
more than 3,000 officers will
be canvassing the Thomas A
Robinson track and field sta-
Mr Hanna said there will
also be 24-hour surveillance
at the games village at the
Nassau Beach Hotel where
guest athletes are being
accommodated, "and a
tremendous police presence
at the Annual People's Rush,
the state reception at Gov-
ernment House, and celebra-
tions at Clifford Park."
As it relates to the large

crowds expected to turn out
at the Independence events
and the CAC Games, Mr
Hanna said police are not
anticipating any major crimi-
nal activity, but are instead
preparing to deal with traffic
"Usually when we have
events like this, the major con-
cern is traffic and getting
motorists to move through in a
smooth and orderly fashion."
However, Mr Hanna said
that although police presence
will be rigid, officers are mind-
ful that "persons will some-
times become overly patriotic
and most likely become
involved in shouting match-
"We expect that nuisances
will occur sometimes, but gen-
erally the police understand
the difference between merry
making and disorderly con-

Coast Guard's

daring rescue

Tribune Staff Reporter
THE United States Coast Guard executed a dramatic rescue
at sea yesterday, coming to the aid of a fisherman who had suf-
fered a severe leg injury.
Tony Grear, who headed the helicopter rescue mission, said
he and his crew was summoned to the scene 9 miles west of
Green Cay in Abaco by a local doctor who reported that a
fisherman on a 75-foot fishing vessel had received multiple cuts
and smashed the bones in one of his feet.
The crew of the vessel had sent out a distress call at 11.30am,
and once the helicopter arrived at the scene a gurney was low-
ered and the man was strapped in and brought up.
He was reportedly bleeding and in pain, but conscious.
The Coast Guard was able to execute the rescue in less than
ten minutes, despite having to battle rough seas and wind of up
to 40 knots.
The conditions were a direct result of Hurricane Dennis
which was barreling toward the Gulf of Mexico at the time of the
The crew reported encountering problems in lowering the
gurney because the only suitable space to land it on the fishing
vessel was towards the bow, which was very narrow.
The man was flown to New Providence and taken to Doctor's
hospital via ambulance.
He is reported to be in stable condition.
The Coast Guard did not have a chance to inquire after the
man's identity or the cause of the injury, and the hospital
declined to release this information.

LATE last Saturday night,
my dog, Coco, was hit by a car
on Winton Highway. I saw her
run full speed toward the road,
andI heard the impact. Anoth-
-,er-car immediately behind,
. paused, and then moved on;-
Kindly allow me space to
send the following messages:
1-) To the driver who hit my
dog: I realise you did not have
time to avoid Coco, but you
must have braked, and/or
swerved. I thank you for that. It
appears Coco will recover. I
apologise for not having my dog
under control, and so endan-
gering traffic, in this instance,
The experience has been a
warning to me to get my yard
2) To the woman who called
lying in the road: I am sorry we
did not have a chance to speak,
I was on the way to the vet, but
thanks for the call.
3) To Dr Grant, of the Palm-
dale Veterinary Clinic, who
knew neither me, nor the dog,
. but interrupted his Saturday
evening at a late hour, to come
to the clinic and save this little
dog, my sincere gratitude.

ONE time ago it was easy.
for politicians to fool Bahami-
ans. We were promised much
"pie in the sky" and we
believed every bit of it, only
to forget about what was
promised after a very short
time. Politicians exploited our
short term memory.
Politicians always treated
the masses as fools and told
the people of the "pot of

The most peculiar of all is
that all of the billions
promised from these various
proposed investments are
supposed to start in 2007. I
find this most hilarious,

because it is patently clear
that the PLP is prepared to
further frustrate the unem-
ployed and delay their own
"help and hope" until elec-
tion without regard :for the
people who are suffering, and
who have been suffering'
since 2002.
To delay the possible assis-

cruel to say the least. Every-
thing is "coming on stream"

nothing less. -

very real today, but that is a

I pay tribute to Mrs Sam

work on behalf of the natural

I commend Mr Keod Smith

Mr Glen Bannister and his
colleagues are also doing a good
job in focusing attention and
dealing with those people who
are ruining our environment

Bahamas reaches education 'crisis'

Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Bahamas has reached a
"crisis" in terms of education,
according to P Anthony White.
Yesterday, the longtime jour-
nalist and political writer told
members of the Rotary Club
of East Nassau that if the state
of education is left unresolved
it will "militate" against the
orderly development of the
"Again and again wve hear of
how this syndrome of poor
education and of widespread
illiteracy is hampering the eco-
nomic progress of many
Bahamians because of their
academic limitations.

"That is true, and such a sad
state of affairs does indeed lim-
it far too many Bahamians in
taking their places along the
road of economic success," said
Mr White.
He pointed out that despite
the Bahamas' potential to
become an "economic won-
der" in the region, there are
not enough trained Bahamians
to take advantage of existing
opportunities, let alone the
increase in demand that will
develop over the next decade.
He noted that three decades
ago, the Bahamas was at the
height of an ambitious Bahami-
anisation programme.

With this programme, busi-
nesses were severely limited by
obstacles to the importation of
skills. Companies were advised
by the government to train
Bahamians or risk refusal of
work permits applications or
extensions, he added.


Mr White explained that
over time, the Bahamas should
have built up a strong and siz-
able cadre of professionals to

fill all posts and "cultivated a
mindset of training of succes-
sive generations of Bahami-
He pointed out however,
that the process failed because
of an unwillingness on the part
of some companies to partici-
pate fully, the lack of vigilant
official follow-up and the lack'
of motivation on the part of
many Bahamians.
"I personally believe that in
the modern Bahamas, despite
the existence of a veritable

army of well-educated and
capable Bahamians in practi-
cally every profession and dis-
cipline, we are still not capa-
ble of meeting even half the
necessary demands.


"It is perhaps we are not
doing all we can to speed up
efforts to correct that danger-
ous situation," he said.

FIVE-year-old Erin Mullin
of Harbour Island was the first
recipient of the Kim Barry
Memorial scholarship. The
award was presented on June
10 by the Barry family and The
Dunmore School.
Erin was chosen from the 37,
students at The Dunmore
School as the one who most
personified the qualities of Kim.
"Erin is exceptionally gifted
academically, she possesses
wonderful leadership skills and
she is kind, helpful and respect-
ful with her teachers and class-
mates," said a statement from
the Kim Barry Memorial fund.
The Kim Barry Memorial
scholarship will be awarded
every two years and covers two
full years tuition which totals
"People were very generous
with their donations to the
scholarship fund and we are in
the process of creating an
endowment so that the schol-
arship can continue to be
awarded for many years to
come in the memory of a young
woman whose whole life was
about the pursuit of knowledge
and who truly valued educa-
tion," said the spokesman for
the fund.
"Kim often made comments
about how she could not believe
that a quality education, espe-
cially at the primary level, had
to be so expensive so the knowl-
edge that we are alleviating that
expense for a family for the next
two years in her name is a won-
derful epitaph," said the Barry
Erin's parents, Gail and
Austin Mullin, are both teach-
ers at The Harbour Island All
Age School and were incredi-
bly excited about this scholar-
ship and grateful for the oppor-
tunity that this presented for
their family. They described it

as "Christmas in June" and said
they would make certain that
Erin "maximizes this wonder-
ful opportunity". It was "a fit-
ting tribute to the life and
achievements of Kim", said the
Mullins and would assist "Erin
and future recipients to maxi-
mize the untold human poten-
tial that lies in all of us, as Kim
showed us so clearly in the full
life that she had."
The Dunmore School is a
multi-cultural and socially pro-
gressive new school. Its doors
opened in September 2002 to
14 students and one teacher
who valued each other and the
learning process. "A journey of
investigation, research, learn-
ing and joy began and continues
today as we grow in size and
scope. We now have more than
37 students and three fulltime
teachers," said the statement.
"It is our mission to foster a
child and family that have pow-
erful minds and can make choic-
es. A strong child that has the
ability to form opinions and a
willingness to negotiate, listen
and respect differences. This
image of the child forms the
core of our daily experience.
We are continually discovering
what makes each child learn
and how we can learn from each
"Our low student/teacher
ratio (maximum of 14 students
per class) enables individual-
ized lesson plans within a broad-
er context. Education is the
future of Harbour Island and
we are proud to offer an alter-
native," said the statement.
Kim Barry, 35, who was
killed in a tragic accident while
jogging in New York in Novem-
ber, was a member of the New
York University School of Law.
In 2003 Kim was named the first
Furman Fellow at the Law

holette Bethel, said Bahami-
ans are losing focus on Bahami-
an culture, but that events like
National Pride Day helps to
refocus on what is ours.
"The young people growing
up don't know what it is to be
Bahamian so we have to teach
them, and if we continue to host
events like these, they will be
able to better appreciate and
understand Bahamian culture,"
Dr Bethel said.
As the festivities came to a
close, two things remained, the
pride in the hearts of Bahami-
ans and the colours of the flag
adorning buildings and along
the streets.
A native of Long Island who
flew to New Providence for the
Independence activities said: "I
will always be proud to be a
Bahamian and I will always wear
my national colours with pride."

A great giant of the community

has fallen in Rock Sound

WHEN King David -
Israel's second
monarch died, the Bible
likened his passing to that of a
giant cedar having fallen in
Lebanon, indicating the
tremendous and positive impact
of his reign over the nation of
God's chosen people.
We reflected upon the above
example of dynamic and influ-
ential leadership a fortnight ago,
as we attended the service of
thanksgiving for the life of
Thomas Albert Sands, OBE, JP
who, in his own inimitable way,
meant so much to and did so
much for the development of
his beloved settlement of Rock
Sound, South Eleuthera.
In 1941, Rock Sound, which is
situated midway on the elon-
gated island of Eleuthera, was
but a humble fishing village. It

was there on September 24 of
that year that Thomas Albert
was born to the marital union of
Curtis Albert and Geneva
Sands. He was the youngest of
the couple's four children.
Unfortunately, Mr Curtis Sands
died two years later, the victim
of that island's first automobile
Having been born into an
industrious family, whose varied
business interests included a
small store, a restaurant- and a

bar, young Albert's enterpris-
ing spirit got its early nurturing
from the daily chores assigned
him to assist in the running of
the family's various commercial
establishments, as well as those
tasks normally associated with
day-to-day household life at
that time. In the former regard,
cleaning fish for the family's
restaurant ranked high on his
list of priority duties.
It was these humbling and
industrious experiences that
impressed.upon him at a ten-
der age that all honest labour
was honourable not demean-
ing or degrading and therein
could be found the key to suc-
cess in any worthwhile under-
taking in life. It was against this
background of experience that
Albert (as he was always affec-
tionately called) began his
entrepreneurial climb at the

early age of 10 years.

With very few motor
vehicles in the set-
tlement, Albert saw an oppor-
tunity to provide a service to
other small store keepers in the
area in getting merchandise,
shipped from Nassau via the
mail boat, to their respective
business establishments. This
he did by building a box cart in
which he transported their



goods from the mail boat to
their stores for six pence (seven
cents) or one shilling (14 cents)
per delivery, given its size.
Notwithstanding this extra
undertaking, Albert still found
time to do all of the other work
assigned him in the family busi-
ness operations.
Unafraid of work, Albert's
industrious attitude soon saw
him rise virtually from being a
stevedore to the position of bag
boy at the largest store on
Eleuthera The Market a
large business establishment,
that later on in his lifetime (as
God would have it) he would
eventually own.
It was obvious, at a very ear-
ly age, that Albert possessed an
insatiable hunger for knowl-
edge. However, it was a
time in our history when the
suppression of secondary edu-
cation from the masses was one
of the ploys being used to per-
petuate minority rule in this
then British colony. Determined
to overcome this barrier, Albert
spent most of his spare time at
the Manse, headquarters of the
Methodist Church in Rock
Sound. There, he not only
received a good academic edu-
cation, but also an education
about life itself from the various
ministers and their families who
stayed at that place.
In his late teens, Albert left
The Market to pursue a new
career with British American
Insurance Company. He quick-
ly became a very successful
agent for that company in his
native Eleuthera. However,
after a successful stint with that
firm, he returned to The Mar-
ket. The Market was then a


division of business tycoon Juan
Trippe's South Eleuthera Prop-
erties, Ltd (SEP), the largest
employer on the island.

R ecognising Albert's
business potential, the
Trippe family soon made him
manager of the retail division
of their company, including The
Market, which was later moved
in 1969 to its present location
in The Market Place Shopping
Centre. At age 24, Albert mar-
ried the love of his life, the
beautiful Claudia Nottage of
Tarpum Bay. They had much
in common, especially a unique
business acumen, which as a
team they utilised to its suc-
cessful maximum.
When Juan Trippe decided
to sell his retail holdings, he
offered these businesses to
Albert and Claudia at prefer-
ential terms. According to
information provided in
Albert's obituary, that mam-
moth transaction was consum-
mated thus: "On June .12th,
1976, the couple leased the real
estate holdings, using all their
savings to make the down-pay-
ment, and thereby establishing
Rock Sound Properties (1976)
Ltd, of which Albert remained
company president until his
"Claudia, who had previous-
ly been self-employed at home
as an insurance agent, went to
work full-time in The Market
Place and through their tireless
effort and commitment, the
couple officially became busi-
ness owners and proprietors in
Never forgetting- from
whence he came, Albert, in his
own quiet way, never failed to
share his good fortune with the
less fortunate residents of Rock
Sound both to individuals in
need and in his generous sup-
port to all worthy local causes.

The following pertinent
information regarding
Albert's major thrust to entre-
preneurial greatness is record-
ed in his obituary. It reads
"In 1985, when foreign-
owned SEP decided to close its
Cotton Bay Club and Golf
Course, which would have
immediately resulted in over
100 South Eleutherans becom-
ing unemployed, the late Sir
Lynden Pindling persuaded
Albert and Franklyn Wilson
that it was time for Eleuther-
ans, and indeed Bahamians, to
become major players in shap-
ing the economy of their own
"Sir Lynden's persistence that
this should happen, coupled

* ALBERT Sands

A against this backdrop,
therefore, it is
extremely ironic that shortly
after the signing of the heads
of agreement with the The
Bahamas government for the
massive development of these
properties, and mere days
before the scheduled ground-
breakding ceremonies for the
same, Albert died on Friday,
June 17,2005.
These projects, we are told,
will proceed as planned and,
when completed, would defi-
nitely serve as fitting memorials
to the life and times of Thomas
Albert Sands, a great commu-
nity giant who gave his all for
the continuous development of
his beloved settlement of Rock
Further assurance of the con-
tinuation of these projects came
earlier this week when
Eleuthera Properties Ltd, with
its $300 million Cotton Bay
resort development plan for
South Eleuthera, signed an
agreement with Starwood
Hotels and Resorts Worldwide
to develop the property as a
member of its prestigious Lux-
ury Collection. On that occa-
sion, Mr Franklyn Wilson, EPL
chairman, made the following
"We are delighted to have
this strategic relationship with
Starwood. This sends a clear

ing for the ultimate vacation
experience. Cotton Bay Villas
will evoke a casual elegance,
combining simplicity with island
style to create a distinctively
elegant atmosphere, along with
the impeccable service that is
the hallmark of The Luxury
Collection." .,
Albert, in his lifetime, was
meticulous and detailed to the
core. Thus, leaving nothing to
chance,, he prepared his three
children, Chandra, Thomas and
Christel, along with hiswon-
derful soulmate Claudia, to car-
ry on his remarkable legacy. No
doubt, they will certainly do just
that. '- )

A lso ironic is the fact
that the very Manise
where Albert was able to
enhance his education with the
help of the Methodist clergy sta-
tioned there, has now been des-
ignated as an historic site.. Its
restoration, preservation and
ultimate conversion into the
South Eleuthera Mission a
museum, computer lab and
resource centre is being
presently undertaken by.the
Mission Foundation, a commu-
nity-based civic organisation
headed by his daughter Chan-
The extent to which Albert
Sands' life positively impacted
the lives of so many people -
not only in his native Eleuthera,
but throughout The Bahamas
and beyond was very vividly
manifested at his funeral at the
AME Church in Rock Sound a
fortnight ago. On that occasion,
hundreds of persons, drawn
from every walk of life, crowd-
ed that edifice and heard glow-
ing tributes paid to this great
We treasured our wonderful
friendship with Albert, from
whom we learnt so much.
Toward the end, we even
shared a common illness, can-
cer. In our recent visits to Rock
Sound on the Antiquities,
Monuments and Museums Cor-
poration's business, we used to
comfort each other in our mutu-
al affliction.
Albert battled his ailment to
the very end and, recognising
his impending demise, even pre-
pared his own funeral service
programme. So thorough was
Albert. We shall sorely miss
him. To his bereaved family, we
again extend our heartfelt con-
dolences, and pray that the mer-
ciful God he served so well will
grant them grace and strength
sufficient to see them through
this painful period of their
bereavement. Finally, may his
soul rest in peace and rise in

A lso commenting at
the time, Mr Stephen

Starwood's Luxury Collection,
had this to say: "We are thrilled
to have our first Luxury Col-

charged atmosphere," reported the
The article also gives a detailed
description of the behaviour of Amer-
ican teenagers at Senor Frog's using
19-year-old Megan Prewitt of Clear-
water, Fl, as an example.
The writer said that Prewitt's danc-
ing and the exposure of her cleavage "is
typical of the patrons at Senor Frog's.
She's young, has never been out of the
United States and has lost track of how
much she has had to drink."
"At Senior Frog's the shots are free,
the beer is cheap and the music is

pumping," said the article. "There are
few parents, and fewer rules; the drink-
ing age is 18 but rarely enforced. Yet
the atmosphere seems safe and dis-
tinctly American: Sweet Home Alaba-
ma is one of the most popular songs on
the dance floor."
"For a $7 cover, bartenders literally
pour shots down kids' throats. Sloppy
kissing and groping are encouraged
and it's easy for sweaty, hormone-
charged teens from around the world
to hook up on the dance floor."
"It's the kind of bar from which
Alabama teen Natalee Holloway van-
ished in Aruba one month ago," said
the article.
"The loose atmosphere it's like a
high school dance with booze helps

explain how a young woman like Hol-
loway could vanish."

ment of State posted an article on their

women, some of whom were report-
edly drugged. To minimize the poten-
tial for sexual assault, the Embassy rec-

ommends that young women stay in
groups, consume alcohol in modera-
tion, and not accept rides or drinks
from strangers."


The Department also warned par-
ents that the legal drinking age in the
Bahamas is 18 and that "enforcement
of the drinking age is weak." It con-
tinued: "It is easy for teenagers to
obtain alcoholic beverages and under-
age drinking is prevalent" and "many
of the arrests, accidents and violent
crimes suffered by U.S. citizens in The
Bahamas involve alcohol."
In response to the St. Petersburg

Times article, Senor Frog's General
Manager, Joaquin Ayala, said he is
awaiting a formal response to the arti-
cle from their head office.
"We have security officers that check
the id's of persons before they enter
the bar," he said. "Once the restau-
rant is closed we do not allow persons
under the age of 18 inside the bar."
"We have never had any major
complaints since we have opened," he
said. "I don't know what these persons
are trying to say about any type of con-
nection because Natalee did not go
missing at the bar in Aruba, she went
missing after she left. However, we
have never had any incidents such as
this with our restaurant and bar in the

message' to Arthur

FROM page one
When Foreign Affairs Minister Fred
Mitchell communicated to the Caribbean
Heads of Government that the national
debate in the Bahamas had been stopped on
the question of the Revised Treaty and that
the country is unable to go any further, he
reported that the heads of CARICOM coun-
tries said the existing relationship between
the Bahamas and CARICOM can continue
The lawyer said he was disappointed by Mr
Arthur's comments as it indicted the "kind of
leader who does not accept things gracefully when
it does not go their way".
"For Mr Arthur to suggest that Bahamians
need increased efforts of education pumped into
its society is an insult to Bahamians everywhere,

including our forefathers who fought so valiantly
to make this country what it is today," Mr Thomp-
son said.
He said the Bahamas rejected the treaty
because it was not "in our best interest."
"We have studied this document in its entirety
and saw through what the whole intent of the
treaty is and we do not accept it as the way for-
ward for us," Mr Thompson said.
He said Mr Arthur may appear to some to
have an authoritarian view on regional policy,
but pointed out that some persons from the prime

Barbadians they too feel the same way as we do.

Budget deficits a

GDP ratio modestly, to 33 per cent of GDP, by
The IMF said: "Over the medium term, an
unchanged fiscal policy stance would raise the
central government's deficit considerably, own-
ing to adverse debt dynamics, and its debt
would increase from 37 per cent of GDP to 44
per cent of GDP by 2010.
"The domestic borrowing requirement
would increasingly crowd out investment by
Bahamian enterprises and constrain econom-
ic activity, which the staff estimate would
cause growth to decline gradually to three
per cent."
The IMF called on Government to make a
0.75 per cent GDP adjustment to the 2005-
2006 Budget to reduce the fiscal deficit fur-
ther, but James Smith, minister of state for
finance, said the Bahamas had rejected this
and any. new or increased taxes because it was

confident its fiscal performance would receive
a major boost from the foreign investment pro-
jects set to come on stream.
Mr Smith said the Government and its advis-
ers "had a better feel" for the impact that for-
eign investment would make on the fiscal per-
formance, given that they had seen this situa-
tion before, whereas the IMF team was not
constantly in the Bahamas.
The minister added: "We can pretty well see
the next four to five years." He said the Gov-
ernment's plan was to "just hold the line" and
wait for the foreign investment projects to take

Bahamas among the "better type", certainly

' FOUR-time Olympian Lavern
Eve won't be the only Bahamian
thrower aiming for glory this
weekend at the Colinalmperial
Senior Central American and

The Bahamas will, also have

team-mates Chafree Bain and
Aymara Albury carrying the
national flag at the three-day
meet at the Thomas A Robin-

National record holder Eve
will be going after her fourth
straight gold medal and her sixth
overall in the last eight champi-
onships in the javelin.
Albury, who broke Eve's
national record in the shot putt,
will be out to claim her glory in
that event. And Bain will attempt
to; break Eve's national record
in the hammer.
This will be Bain's initial senior
international meet and she said
she is excited to be back home to
"It's nice to finally,get a chance
to compete home at a meet like
this," said Bain, adding that the
only time she has been able to
compete at home recently has
been at the Bahamas Associa-

National Open Track and Field
"They've never had a big inter-
national meet like this at home,
so I really haven't had a chance

to compete. But I always com-
pete well at home and so I'm
looking forward to it."
While she is entered in the dis-
cus as well, Bain said her goal is
really set on clinching the gold
in the hammer, an event she has
improved in significantly this
year as she completed her colle-
giate eligibility for the Crimson
"The hammer was more pre-
vailing for me this season, so it's
turned out to be my best event,"
Bain said. "That's not to say that
it will continue because I still
enjoy the discus."
Now that she is done with
school, Bain is looking forward
to making the adjustment to life
in the real world.
"I have a bigger task ahead of
me," she stressed. "So it's now
time for me to see what the
world has to offer. But I'm excit-
ed about my future."
As for her rivals this weekend,
Bain is not familiar with any of
the athletes coming in, but
understands that Cuba have
some world class athletes in both
the hammer and discus.
"I don't know any of them, so
I just have to go out there and
throw," she said. "I'm just excit-
ed to be home, so I know that I
should put on a good perfor-

Dr Nottage is putting on.
"But I thought they would

think it will work out very well."

"I think that it's significant,

'Reno' Johnson leads Bahamas

to victory in Virgin Islands

Senior Sports Reporter
FOR the third consecutive
year, Taureano "Reno" John-
son has emerged as the Boxer
of the Tournament at the
Caribbean Amateur Boxing
Association's Championships.
The 21-year-old welterweight
champion had an astonishing
performance in leading the
Bahamas to the overall title in
St. Thomas, the Virgin Islands
last month.
"I had three fights and I won
all three of them. I expected to
win all three of them. Not being
boastful, but my level of expe-
rience has shown me what to
expect," he said.
Johnson, who improved his
estimated 105-28 win-loss
record over an 11 year span, not
only won all of his matches, but
he stopped two of his oppo-
nents in the first round and the
other in the third.
"This is what I expected," he
said. "The hard work and train-
ing that I did in Cuba really
paid off for me. I really enjoyed
all of my matches. I can't say
one or the other was better."
It was a fabulous perfor-
mance for Johnson, who led the
Bahamas to an impressive
showing as all ten boxers won
their fights, leading the
Bahamas too clinch the overall
team title.
"It was just great to travel
with Lavar Stuart, who trained
with me in Cuba and James
McKenzie, who is a very good
athlete and Keishno Major,
Valentino Knowles, Carl Hield
and the younger boxers from
the Boys Industrial School,"
Johnson reflected.
"It was a privilege. We went
over and we just cleaned up.. I
couldn't believe that I went with
a team that was so dangerous."
Prior to going to the cham-
pionships, Johnson had spent

the first three months of the
year on an athletic scholarship
training in Cuba.
It was that trip, coupled with
Johnson's ability, that he attrib-
uted to his success in the past
three years.
"Cuba has been an avenue
that has motivated me and the
training has been the best, most
of all. I think that is one of the
reasons why I've been able to
win my fights. It was because of
the hard training I got in Cuba."


Now he has conquered one
of his goals, Johnson said he has
a much bigger task hanging
over him.
"My aim is the gold at the
Olympics," said Johnson, who
came close to qualifying for his
first Olympic Games appearance
last year in Athens, Greece.,
"But it's not just myself, but
others out there who see the
potential that I have in winning
the Olympic gold medal. I think
it's possible and it's something
that I will definitely be pursu-
While the next Olympics will
not be held until 2008 in Bei-
jing, China, Johnson is prepar-
ing to go to the Commonwealth
Championships in Scotland.
"This time, I'm not aiming
for the silver. I'm aiming for the
gold," Johnson indicated. "But
I'm not just aiming for the gold,
but I want to get the.Boxer of
the Tournament too.
"We also have the World
Championships this year, along
with the CAC Games in
December, of which I'm the
prized boxer for both of them."
As a boxer from such a small
country in the Caribbean, John-
son said it's not easy attaining
the level of success that he has

should not be eating," he said.
"But because of the discipline
that has been instilled in me,
I'm able to avoid the tempta-
While he's been able to stay

motivated to his cause, John-
son know that in order for him
to survive as a world-class box-
er, he will have to be committed
to his training regime.
"If I'm getting this far with
Cuba, why should I stop right
now," said Johnson, about

returning to Cuba to continue
his training. "Cuba have the
best boxers in the world and
I'm training along with the best
boxers in the world.
"So I'm more determined to.
go out there and win the
Olympic gold medal more than

any other boxer out there. So
fit's good that I'm getting the
training from the boxers who
are going to try and stop me
from achieving my goal."
With the Olympic gold as his
main goal, Johnson does not
plan on turning pro before 2008.

McPhee stated at a press conference at
Floyd's Restaurant.
"But we want to announce that all of
the problems facing the committee,
both in Nassau and in Andros, have
been solved and we are now destined
to have a superb regatta next week-
McPhee thanked MP Vincent Peet,
Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture
Neville Wisdom, committee chairman
Alphonso Smith and former Marathon
MP Algernon Allen for the role they
all played in ensuring that the regatta is
"We are now appealing to all
Bahamians to come and to give to the
Andros community their full support at
a time when they are in during need of
their support," McPhee stated.
Last week, a fire destroyed the air-
port at San Andros.
But McPhee said they are making
provisions with the Bahamas Fast Fer-
ries to transport persons interested in
attending the regatta as early as Mon-
day, when the regatta site will official-
ly open.
The regatta, according to McPhee, is
being put on in conjunction with the
Commonwealth Sailing Association
but is open to all boats.
But he warned that the organising
committee is limited in terms of how
many boats they can include because
of the cash prizes that are being
Already confirmed to participate in
the three classes of sailing are the fol-
lowing boats:
A Class Rupert's Legend, Red
Stripe, Courageous and Who-Dat from
the CSA and the Sea Star and South-
ern Cross from the BBOSA. Two spots
have been left for the Ragged Island

* THE Rev Dr Philip McPhee (right) gave details of the All-Andros and Berry Island Regatta, scheduled for next weekend. Joining him are Tyrone Fowler, the
vice-president of the organising committee; Anita Pratt-Collie, assistant secretary of the BBOSA; and Eleazor 'the Sailing Barber' Johnson.

B Class Campari Lady Natalie,
Eudeva, Passion and Pinta from the
CSA and the Barbarian and the Heath-
cliff from the BBOSA. Two boats are
also being invited from the RIA.
C Class Lady Eunice, Mouth-
stache and Two Friends from the
CSA and the Fugitive, Bulla Reg,
Vitamalt Thunderbird, Hot Flash
and the Barbarian from the

BBOSA. Two boats again from the
RIA have also been invited.
"This regatta will have representa-
tion from Long Island, Exuma, Ack-
lins, Crooked Island and of course
from Andros," McPhee said.
More than $60,000 in cash prizes is
being offered for the regatta.
Fowler, speaking on behalf of
Smith, who was unable to attend

because of an accident to his son,
joined McPhee in welcoming Bahami-
ans from all walks of life to attend the
"I promise you, this will be one of
the greatest regattas ever," he said.
"Come down and join us and let's have
some fun."
Going into the regatta, Johnson's
Campari Lady Natalie leads the Pinta

by four points and he said he intends to
stay ahead.
"I love to sail Andros because the
water never goes low," said Johnson,
who sails for the community of San
Andros and Butler and Sands.
"I never led the Boat of the Year
this early. I normally catch then up.
But thank God I'm out front. I want
the Pinta. I have something for lthcm."
