* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
GOVERNMENT officials
met yesterday with manage-
ment of the Isle of Capri to
strongly express their unhappi-
ness over the manner in which
the resort laid off 45, casino
Workers. --
The move by the resort has
upset government officials who
have characterised it as a deci-
sion made in "poor taste" as
discussions between the
investors and government were
continuing up to the time the
staff were laid off.
Tourism Minister Obie
Wilchcombe explained that gov-
ernment was in "cordial discus-
sions" with the resort. But, he
said, it was blind-sided by the
layoffs.
Major financial losses at the
Isle of Capri forced manage-
ment to lay off frontline work-
ers and managers at the Grand
Bahama casino.
It has been speculated that
further layoffs are on the hori-
zon and that the company
hopes government will consider
its proposal for a reduced tax
rate structure.
It has been reported that $6
million is owed by the Capri in
casino taxes.
However, Minister Wilch-
combe said the argument that
government's taxes have caused
the casino to be less profitable is
flawed because the tax is based
solely on the amount of spend-
ing taking place at the facility.


Isle of Capri is requesting that
their casino tax be reduced from
17 per cent to nine per cent. In
addition they are requesting $5
million from governnient for
promotion campaigns.
"It is just over a year or two
that the Isle of Capri agreed to
the terms of their engagement
in the"Bthamas, the tax is stan-

Senator McWeeney

announces resignation


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter,
SENATOR Cyprianina
McWeeney yesterday
announced her resignation from
the Senate, effective immedi-
ately.
In an emotional speech Mrs
McWeeney told members of the
upper chamber that she decided
to resign to "pursue some excit-
ing new opportunities that I
simply cannot put off any
longer."
While Mrs McWeeny said she
could not reveal what the
opportunity was, she reiterated
that she was not leaving to take
up a job or consultancy in the
Prime Minister's office or in any
part of the government.
"Those rumours, as I have
said before, are completely
unfounded."
Mrs McWeeny said she has
enjoyed her time in the Senate.
She called it a wonderful expe-
rience.
"It gives me particular plea-
sure, and pride to know that

Daughter of
double-murder
accused takes the
stand in court
* By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE daughter of Henry
Hugh Smith took the witness
stand yesterday in the double
murder trial of her father. The
trial re-opened on Tuesday for
the third time.
Paige Celeste Smith, who is
now 12, gave evidence in court
yesterday about the death of
her mother, Terah Smith. Mrs
Smith and her friend, Larry Fer-
nander, were shot dead at his
Love Beach home on July 21,
2000.
The young girl told the court
that in the past her mother had
taken her to the Love Beach
home of Mr Fernander, whom
she called "Uncle Larry".
She said when she was about
5 or 6 years old, which was
about a year or two before her
mother's death, her father
asked her if she knew where
"Uncle Larry" lived. She said
it was during the night that she
directed her father to the Love

By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE family of the late
Rev Glenroy Nottage is
committed to maintaining
operations at the All Saints
AIDS Camp, Dr Bernard
Nottage, brother of the
deceased said yesterday.
In a telephone interview
with The Tribune, Dr Not-
tage said he is "amazed" at
some of the comments made
by people about the future
of the camp.
"I am amazed by recent
comments and the sudden
interest, because for years
now (the camp) has been
neglected," he said.
Following the death on
Sunday of Rev Nottage, the
camp's founder, there have
been questions as to
whether the hospice would
remain open.

Emily not likely




to hit Bahamas


TROPICAL Storm Emily
will not threaten the Bahamas
if it remains on its present
track.
However as yet another sys-
tem forms in the Atlantic
behind it, local meteorologists
are warning Bahamians to stay
vigilant.
"Even though it doesn't
appear to be a threat to us right
now, we're always asking resi-
dents to monitor the progress
of systems in the area," said
Patricia Clarke at the forecast
office of the Meteorological
Department.
"If the storm makes a west-
northwest turn we are especial-


EXA


ly asking residents to monitor
the system," she added, but said
that if it continues on its pre-
sent track it will pass to the
southwest of Cuba.

Prediction

Tropical storm Emily was
expected to increase in strength
and become a hurricane after
passing through the Southern
Windward Islands yesterday
evening.
At 2pm yesterday afternoon,
Emily was tracked near latitude
11.3 North and longitude 59.0
West, placing it 130 miles south-


southeast of Barbados and 150
miles east-northeast of Trinidad.
Tropical storm warnings have
been placed on Barbados,
Tobago, Grenada, the
Grenadines, St Vincent, St;
Lucia, and the Northern coast
of Venezuela.
A tropical wave is forming in
the Caribbean that meteorolo-
gists are monitoring.
It was tracked at 650 miles
west of the Cape Verde Islands
yesterday morning.
The system was just a low
pressure area and not a depres-
sion at the time, but is expected.
to be upgraded in the next day
or two.


LNG pipeline 'would


certainly destroy reef


* By ADRIAN GIBSON
A MARINE expert who has
been diving around Ocean Cay
says that there is not a single
spot where a liquefied natural
gas (LNG) pipeline could be
laid without destroying areef.
In an interview from his Flori-
da home, Dr Ray McCalister,
an oceanographer and ocean
engineer said that "with an
LNG pipeline, a source of
tourism and fishing will be
ruined".
"Don't let them devastate
your reef," he warned.
Dr McCalister has said Min-
ister of Trade and Industry
Leslie Miller has not told the
Bahamian public all there is to
know about the LNG proposal


for Ocean Cay.
He said that the meeting
between Mr Miller and Manuel
Diaz, a resident of nearby Cat
Cay, was a shouting match
rather than a discussion about
LNG.
"The fight between Mr Diaz
and Mr Miller kept the real hor-
rors of LNG disasters from
being known" he claimed.
"Do not believe what AES
tells you, please get an inde-
pendent authority" Dr McCal-
ister advised.
He said international LNG
specialists are now finding leaks
in underwater pipes, as their
contents are disintegrating the
protective seals.
"A pipeline disaster would
lead to gas rising and mixing


with oxygen and this could be
flammable and explodable" he
said. Dr McCalister highlight-
ed the potential danger posed
by LNG by explaining that "if a
ship comes into Boston har-
bour, the harbour is closed and
the ship has a military escort".
He claimed that if an LNG
tanker exploded, depending on
the wind, everything within a 1
too 20 mile circumference
would be destroyed.
"I have never gotten a copy
of the government's manage-
ment plan telling what safe
guards are in place for Ocean
Cay," he said.
The debates surrounding
LNG stem from a $650 million
proposal by AES to construct
a re-gasification plant at Ocean
Cay that would convert LNG
to gas for transport to Florida.
Last week's meeting of the
Bahamian Forum on LNG was
punctuated by arguments and
outbursts between opponents
Sam and Tony Duncombe and
panel members Dr Marcus
Bethel and Richard Coulson.

Bahamas is 'still in favour



of UN council expansion'


* By DINA TSERETOPOULOS
THE Bahamas has not
altered its position on the pro-
posed expansion of the UN
Security Council, despite
reports that the majority of
Caribbean governments have
thrown their weight behind the
bid of the G4 nations.
According to the website for
the Communications Unit of
the Office of the Prime Minis-
ter of St Kitts and Nevis, that
country is "among a signifi-
cant number of Caribbean
States that have indicated sup-
port for the joint bid by Brazil,
Japan, Germany and India
(the G4) for permanent seats
on a reformed and expanded
United Nations Security
Council."
As a body, CARICOM has
not stated that it will specifi-
cally endorse the Security
Council ambitions of any par-
ticular nation, but has said that
members support expansion in
general.
A recent CARICOM com-
muniqu6 states: "Heads of


government noted that mem-
ber states are favourably dis-
posed toward an expansion of
the United Nations Security
Council."
Minister of Foreign Affairs
Fred Mitchell said yesterday
that the Bahamas would con-
tinue to adhere to the above
position.

Vague

He added however that the
communique is too vague to
serve as a definitive statement
of support for the G4 bid, as it
"does not explicitly state that
CARICOM is in support of
bids from Brazil, Germany,
India and Japan."
It was reported in The Tri-
bune last week that the
Bahamas might find itself in a
difficult position in terms of
'whether or not to support
Japan's bid to join the Security
Council.
The Bahamas has friendly
relations with both Japan
and with China, which opposes


the Japanese bid.
Mr Mitchell implied that the
Bahamas would align its posi-
tion with that of CARICOM,
and is waiting to see which
country the body explicitly
endorses in the coming
months.
The minister said negotia-
tions are presently taking place
in New York to consider alter-
ations to the framework reso-
lution for Security Council
expansion proposed by the 40
countries of the African
Union.
Once all amendments have
been decided upon, the
Bahamas will be able to take
a definite stance on the sub-
ject.
Mr Mitchell said he pre-
ferred not to speculate as to
the position the Bahamas
would take if CARICOM
decided as a body to support
the G4.
Heowever, he said that for
the time being the Bahamas
remains in firm support of the
CARICOM communique's
"vague" proposition.


Priest condemns event


* By KRYSTEL ROLLE
THE Junkanoo event in
Freeport on July 31 is stirring
up controversy within the
Christian community in Grand
Bahama.
Reverend John C Wallace,
immediate past president of
the Grand Bahama Christian
Council expressed his shock
after learning the rush-out is
set to take place on a Sunday.
"How in the name of God
could a people who call them-
selves Christians be partakers
of such a devilish cultural
event, on a Sunday, the day set
aside for Christian worship."


Philip Cooper, one of the
founding members of the Sax-
ons Junkanoo group, admit-
ted that Sunday is a bad day to
host the "Junkanoo Feel the
Rush" event.
Mr Cooper added however
that Junkanoo is what sepa-
rates the Bahamas from other
Caribbean countries and helps
to make Bahamian culture
unique.
He said Junkanoo should be
appreciated and cherished .by
Bahamians for what it is.
"If Junkanoo groups can
practice on a Sunday then they
should be able to rush on a
Sunday. It's the same thing,"

Tribunal to judge on



Morton and union
orton


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Industrial Tribunal is
set to rule on the validity of the
agreement between Morton
Bahamas Limited and the
Bahamas Industrial Manufac-


turers and Allied Workers
Union (BIMAWU).
Morton Bahamas is the only
private employer on the island
of Inagua and the agreement,
if ratified, would be the first to
outline terms and conditions for
its workers. '.
The matter is now in the
hands of the tribunal after both
sides were scheduled to hand
in final written submissions on
Tuesday afternoon.
According to attorney for the
union Obie Ferguson, the tri-
bunal's judgment will determine
if the industrial agreement was
executed as required by the
Industrial Relations Act.
The agreement was complet-


ed on November 7, 2002 and
added to on June 5, 2003.
On May 27 2004, the tribunal
de-registered the agreement
only two days after it was regis-
tered, on the basis that it was
not properly executed.
However in March of this
year, Supreme Court Justice'
Claire Hepburn ruled that the
tribunal acted hastily in mak-
ing that decision.
The tribunal was ordered to 4
investigate the matter further,
and Tuesday's submissions were
the last step in that process.
Judge Nathaniel Dean of the
tribunal will make the final
judgment on whether the agree-
ment will be registered.

No easy decision for the Bahamas


ON HIS return from the 26th CARICOM
heads of government meeting held at Gros
Islet, Saint Lucia, from July 3 to 6, Foreign
Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell said the
Bahamas found itself in a difficult position
over a UN Security Council vote.
Torn by loyalties to two friendly nations -
China and Japan the Bahamas was in a
quandary as to which one to support in a UN
vote to expand membership in the Security
Council.
Would it allow the $30 million, 15,000-seat
national stadium that China has promised to
the Bahamas to determine its vote, or would
it support its equally good friend, Japan?
What a big problem for such a little nation,
whose foreign minister is determined to make
its voice heard above a squeak in interna-
tional arenas.
However, faced with its first major crisis,
had this little country ventured beyond its
depths in these shark-infested waters?
The Bahamas didn't know on which side of
the bank to jump. So it took the line of least
resistance the line that one has come to
expect from this administration. Mr Mitchell
vent to the Saint Lucia meeting with Prime
Minister Christie's blessing and instructions to
vote whichever way CARICOM voted.
But as Saint Lucia's prime minister, Dr
Kenny Anthony, pointed out, what is-a
CARICOM vote unless it is the vote of each
and every member. And, obviously, as the
Bahamas is a member of CARICOM in its
thirty-second year of independence it was
expected to come to the conference with a
position and a vote. Taking a wishy-washy
follow-the-leader stance helped no one.
Jamaica was in the same boat.
The UN Security Council has 15 members.
Five of them China, France, Russia, the
United Kingdom and the United States -
are permanent members with veto powers.
It is proposed that the permanent body be
enlarged with two nations chosen from the G4
group- Germany, Brazil, India and Japan.
Japan and India are the two favourites. How-
ever, with age-old issues unresolved between
them, China bitterly opposes Japan.
China fears that including India and Japan
would dilute its position as the dominant
Asian member of the Security Council.
According to Mr Mitchell, China sent
envoys to the Bahamas to win its vote. Mr
Mitchell said Caribbean countries find them-
selves in a difficult position because they are

friendly with both countries. Now maybe the
Bahamas understands that no gifts are given
without a price tag. And the day eventually
comes when the piper must be paid.
However, there was a strong man among
them who put the interest of his own country
first. President Bharrat Jagdeo of Guyana
said that China had been good to his nation -
it was a good friend. However, he said, he
told the Chinese that although Guyana appre-
ciated all that it had done for it, it was voting
in the best,interest of Guyana and that
was for the UN resolution. He obviously
weighed China's gifts in the balance and
decided that, although grateful, Guyana was
not for sale.
Mr Mitchell on the other hand told the
meeting that although the Bahamas prime
minister's position was clear on the matter
- he never said what that position was -
Cabinet had not voted on it. However, he
said, Prime Minister Christie said the
Bahamas should support whatever position
CARICOM took.
Barbados foreign minister, Dame Billie
Miller, told her colleagues that this was a
matter that needed to be resolved abstain-
ing or sitting on the fence was not going to do
it, she said. t
The first vote resulted in seven against the
UN reform, four in favour and two absten-
tions. Dr Keniy sent them back into caucus.
He said CARICOM had to speak with one
voice- he wanted a unanimous vote. Mem-
bers went back to their deliberations and
returned with a vote of seven against and six
in favour. So even in this CARICOM does
not speak with one voice.
The Bahamas can do without a stadium if
it comes with such strings attached, but what
happens when Brothers Fidel and Chavez
start calling in their favours at the UN- can
the Bahamas do without that PetroCaribe oil
that Minister Leslie Miller has signed this
country on to?
Everyone knows the rumpus-Bahamians
raise when their electricity is off for five min-
utes. They would prefer to pay more for their
electricity and petrol, than be in perpetual
darkness when Venezuela's Chavez turns off
the switch.
Bahamians have a right to know more
about the agreement that this country has
been signed onto and whether there is any
way that it can be cancelled if found not to be
in our best interest.


Hiding the





truth about


war in


EDITOR, The Tribune
PRESIDENT George Bush
was masterful last night in
defending his reasons for invad-
ing Iraq. He was even better in
putting the case for staying on
until the job is finished, howev-
er long that takes. Of course I
have a different spin on this
entire matter.
You can never say this with-
out hurting the feelings of at
least some Americans, but it
needs to be said. At the stone-
laying ceremony of July 4, 2004
on the site where the World
Trade Centre towers formerly
stood, New York state gover-
nor George Pataki dedicated
the building that is to replace
them with the rhetoric that is
,standard in the United States
on such occasions: "Let this
great Freedom Tower show the
world that what our enemies
sought to destroy our democ-
racy, our freedom, our way of
life stands taller than ever."
In my view, September 11
wasn't about any of that. Imag-
ine the scene: it's 1999, and a
group of wild-eyed and bushy-
bearded Islamic fanatics are
pacing a cave somewhere in
Afghanistan, planning 9/11.
"We must destroy American
democracy," says one.
"An America run by a dicta-
tor would be a much better
place."
No? This scene doesn't ring
true? Then why does almost all
public discussion in the United
States about the goals of the
Islamic terrorists assume that
they are driven by hatred for
the domestic, political and social
arrangements of Americans?
Because. Americans cannot
imagine foreigners not being
interested in the way they do
things, let alone using the Unit-
ed States as a tool to pursue
other goals entirely.
Public debate in the United
States generally assumes that
America is the only true home
of democracy and freedom, and
that other people and countries
are 'pro-American' or 'anti-

East on Arab and Muslim atti-
tudes toward the United States.
It also blinds most Americans to
the nature of the strategic game
that their country has been
tricked into playing a role in.
So, once more, with feeling:
the September 11 attacks were
not aimed at American values,
which are of no interest to the
Islamists, one way or another.
They were an operation that
was broadly intended to raise
the profile of the Islamists in
the Muslim world, but they had
the further quite specific goal
of luring the United States into
invading Muslim countries.
The true goal of the Islamists
is to come to power in Muslim
countries, and their problem
until recently was that they
could not win over enough local
people to make their revolu-
tions happen. Getting the Unit-
ed States to march into the
Muslim world in pursuit of the
terrorists was a potentially
promising stratagem, since an
invasion should produce epd-
less images of American sol-
diers killing and humiliating
Muslims.
That might finally push
enough people into the arms
of the Islamists to get their
long-stalled revolutions off
the ground. Specifically, the
al-Qaida planners expected
the US to invade Afghanistan
and get bogged down in the
same long counter-guerrilla war
that the Russians had experi-
enced there, providing along
the way years of horrifying
images of American firepower


killing innocent Muslims.
Osama bin Laden and his col-
leagues were simply trying to
relive their past success against
the Russians and get some
mileage out of the Afghan sce-
nario. In fact their plan failed:
the United States conquered
Afghanistan quickly and at a
very low cost in lives, and even
now, despite huge American
neglect, Afghanistan has not
produced a major anti-Ameri-
can resistance movement.
The reason al-Qaida is still in
business in a big way is that the
Bush administration then invad-
ed Iraq. The Islamists were
astonished, no doubt, but they
knew how to exploit an oppor-
tunity when one is handed to
them. And so the real game
continues, while the public
debate in the United States is
conducted in terms that have
only the most tangential con-
tact with strategic reality.
Perhaps it's unfair to ask
Governor Pataki to get into
any of that at an emotional cer-
emony that was in part a com-
memoration of the lives that
were lost on September 11, but
when will it be addressed, and
by whom? What major public
figure will stand up and say
that the United States and its
values are not really und6r
attack; that the country and its
troops are actually just being
used as pawns in somebody
else's strategy?
Many senior American politi-
cians and military officers
understand what is going on,
but is it worth more than their
career is worth to say so out
loud?

Leaders must



behave better



in the House


EDITOR, The Tribune
I AM a young Bahamian
who is about to vote for the
first time in the next general
elections in 2007. I some-
times watch the Parliamen-
tary channel just to get a
glimpse of the issues of the
day.
On June 23 2005 at about
9pm I was watching TV. It
was raining outside and I
must have turned the TV to
channel 53 near the end of
Minister Maynard Gibson's
statements because I caught
only part of what was being
said.
I was stunned. A woman,
and a mother, a professional,
a minister of government
talking about another per-
son like that! Why was she
saying these things about
"the former" Registrar Gen-
eral, as she called her? Why
didn't somebody stop her?
Why in parliament, where
were her colleagues and why
was this on my TV! I was
disgusted!
I must admit though, that
my interest was piqued by
this attack on "the former"
Registrar as she called her.
The next day. I began to
ask questions.
Who is "the former" Reg-
istrar? What did she do to


deserve all of that?
Interestingly enough my
questions were never
answered satisfactorily by
any one person I talked to. I
did find out that her name
is Elizabeth Thompson. I
hear she has children, I hear
she's a lawyer, I hear that
she was fired as Registrar
General and I hear that most
of her staff felt she was inter-
ested in them.
Let me say this, though, I
realise that it's not really
important who Ms Thomp-
son is or what she did or did
not do but the fact that she
wasn't in that place where
those awful things were
being said to defend herself.
That is what is important to
me!
We're watching...
We have to do better, peo-
ple. We must require more
of our leaders. Y'all grown.
Act like it! We demand
more of you in the 21st cen-
tury. Let's stick to the facts
for a change leave the ego
out of things. Elevate our
minds and yours! Lift each
other up.
I hope y'all are listening,
cause we're watching.

THE TRIBUNE-









THE TIBUNETHURSAY, JLY 142005,PAW


* By KARAN MINNIS
REPORTS of illegal activity at Bone-
fish Pond have halted according to Eric
Carey, director of parks and science liaison
for the Bahamas National Trust (BNT).
Following the discovery of extensive ille-
gal dumping and excavating at the pro-
tected site, Mr Carey has asked residents of
the area to report any further activity of
this kind.
He told The Tribune yesterday that since
'the courts intervened in the matter last
week, there have been no new reports of
'environmental abuse.
Marine
Bonefish Pond, one of the four national
parks in New Providence, lies on the south-
.central coast of the island and is a replen-
ishing zone for small fish, conch, and oth-
-er marine animals.
It is suspected that J and L Backhoe
,Crane Rental, Payloader and Trucking
-Service has been one of the primary


dumpers of industrial waste at the site.
The company is also suspected of push-
ing industrial debris and garbage into the
pond, in order to excavate the site to
remove land fill for commercial retail.

Ordered
Last week Tuesday, the Supreme Court
had ordered Jerome Lafleur Senior and
Junior, the owners of company, to cease all
activity at the site until a complaint filed by
the BNT can be heard.
The BNT says however that it is unsure
how far the matter has, progressed or when
their complaint will be heard.
According to Mr Carey, even though it
may be too late to restore the portion of
Bonefish Pond that has been excavated,
it is still important to stop both the dump-
ing and the excavation.
"We are prepared to take this thing ful-
ly through the legal process, and we are
intent on seeing that our rights be upheld
through the Supreme Court, and stop these
people from destroying the national park."


Mr Carey also stated that the BNT is
not aware of any action that has been tak-
en by any government agency in relation to
the matter. "Our official position is that we
are hopeful and optimistic that Ron Pinder
will make good on his efforts and on his
word that they will take appropriate
action," he said.
Mr Pinder is the Parliamentary Secretary
for the Ministry of Health.
Joan Missick, a resident of the Marshall
Road area, says she has been concerned
about the dumping for two years.
Residents
"Residents from all over the island are
doing much of the dumping," she said.
"Even though the government has put up
signs to cease the dumping people are just
ignoring the signs."
She said that because Bonefish Pond
borders on both Cowpen Road and Mar-
shal Road, both sides should be protected.
The Tribune was unable to contact Mr
Lafleur for comment yesterday.

RIPPIT, the horse that had
to be put down on Tuesday
after being badly injured in a
-head-on collision with a large
:truck on Market Street,
;. "should have never been tied in

Turnquest.
Mr Turnquest told The Tri-

offence in the Bahamas to tie

ble."

Mr Turnquest added howev-
er that he does not believe for-
mal charges will be brought
against the animal's owner, or
against his young handler John
Tides, to whom Rippit was
entrusted at the time of the
accident.
"I believe the police will
treat it as an honest accident,"
said Mr Turnquest.
What started out as a day of
rest and recuperation for "Rip-
pit" ended tragically when the
animal was spooked while tak-
ing a water break.
Had he been tied in a proper
stable, Human Society officials
believe, the accident would
have been avoided.
Mr Turnquest added that he
knows Rippit's owner Dudley
Lewis and can vouch for the
fact that the horse, which was
one of five owned by the han-
dler, "was never kept in a suit-
able stable."
The accident occurred
around 2pm on Tuesday, and
drew dozens of motorists and
nearby residents to the scene.
The driver of the Ford F150
truck, Michael Davis, was not
injured.
At the scene of the accident,
efforts to locate a crane to lift
the severely brain damaged
horse were futile.
However, Mr Turnquest
claims the lack of a crane did

not contribute to the decision
. to put Rippit to sleep three
hours after the collision.
He said the decision was
made after veterinarian Dr
Solomon Kwakye determined
that "the horse was in too
much pain" and would proba-
bly never be able to make a
full mental recovery.
Mr Turnquest said it is a rare
occasion when the Humane
Society is summoned to a traf-
fic accident involving a horse
or any other large animal "for
the mere fact that there are not
many large animals around."
"We sometimes have prob-
lems with cows that get out of
their stable from time to time,
and surrey horses who some-
times go astray, but it is not
everyday that you are going to
find a horse running into the
street," said Mr Turnquest.
The Humane Society once
owned a horse trailer that
could be used to maneuver
large animals, but it became
insignificant after the discon-


tinuation of the Hobby Horse
Hall race track years ago, Mr
Turnquest said.
He added that in Rippit's
case, "the trailer would have
been useless because the horse
would have still been required
to walk into the trailer."
Mr Turnquest said that for
the Humane Society to procure
a new horse trailer "would be
entirely too expensive, and we
just do .not have that type of
money to spend."
He estimates the cost of a
new trailer at $10,000.
Chief Supt Hulan Hanna
told The Tribune yesterday that
police will not bring formal
charges against the horse han-
dler or its owner for the acci-
dent on Tuesday.
Said Mr Hanna: "I do not
believe that the police will find
any cause to suspect criminal
liability in this case.
"I think it was just a freakish
accident, and the parties con-
cerned must be regretting the
incident."

Concern at future



for hybrid cars


* By KRISTINA McNEIL
AS hybrid vehicles are
appearing more frequently on
Bahamian roads, one car dealer
feels local mechanics are not
prepared to properly service
and maintain cars with the new..
technology.
In an advertisement in The
Tribune yesterday, Executive
Motors warned buyers that it
was not able to provide parts
and services for the Toyota
Prius.
Customers should be cau-
tious, the company said, when


considering whether to buy the
vehicle.
But another local dealer has
assured Toyota owners that
hybrid cars are still serviceable
and economical here.
Autos-R-Us also placed an
advertisement in The Tribune
yesterday, assuring Toyota own-
ers that even though some local
dealers do not carry parts and
cannot service the Toyota Prius,
Autos-R-Us can.
The Toyota Prius is a Japan-
ese hybrid car, running on gaso-
line and electric power..


The vehicle initially runs on
electric power, then switches to
gasoline when a certain speed is
reached.
"It is a very complicated sys-
tem to maintain. Hybrid cars
like the Prius are designed to
get up to certain speeds and in
the stop-and-go traffic like that
in Nassau, the system can't
function properly," said Fred
Albury, owner of'Executive
Motors.
The Toyota Prius has been
out on the Japanese domestic
market and in limited capacity

Mr Albury said: "We
approached Toyota about the
model, along with other
Caribbean countries, in order
to seeif w.e qualify. Toyota has
not allowed us to do that. The
requirements are so stringent
that we may not be able to meet
them.
"While the car sounds attrac-
tive and may be more fuel effi-
cient, the mix of the gasoline
engine and electric motors
require special training. Even
in the US only special dealers


carry them," said Mr Albury.
"That does mean to say that
in the future we will not be able
to do so. There are other
Caribbean countries like
Jamaica and the Cayman

the same thing."
Autos-R-Us describes the

Hybrid cars require a
"tremendous investment," with


all of the tooling and training

to qualify mechanics to deal
with them.
This sometimes includes up
to six months training in Pana-

Albury. "Some of these cars

Corporation is to



investigate filthy



water 'immediately'


By DANIELLE STUBBS
Tribune Staff Reporter
AN investigation into the one-
year water crisis experienced a
Winton Meadows family is
expected to begin immediately -
once the Water and Sewerage
Corporation "makes certain
determinations."
"We guarantee this family's sit-
uation will be investigated straight
away, or as soon as we locate
them," said Godfrey Sherman,
general manager at the Water and
Sewerage Corporation.
According to the family, who
spoke with The Tribune on con-
dition of anonymity, rusty water
with a pungent odor has been
flowing out of their pipes for more
than a year now.
The family of six, including two
young children, say that despite
several complaints made to the
Water and Sewerage Corpora-
tion, "nothing has been done".
However, Mr Sherman told
The Tribune yesterday that he
could not give a fair assessment or
comment on whether there are
efforts being made to rectify the


family's water problem because
he has no prior knowledge of
their plight.
He added that customers of the
Water and Sewerage Corporation
"should never hesitate to launch
complaints about services if nec-
essary," or be concerned about
there being repercussions if their
identity is revealed.
"When you are a paying cus-
tomer; you have the right to com-
plain about your water supply
until it is satisfactory," said Mr
Sherman.
Responding to what may be the
cause of the family's poor quali-
ty water, Mr Sherman said: "It
could be a number of things.
There could be a situation of bad
water and good pipes, it could be
a problem with the disconnection
network and the list goes on. It's
just extremely difficult to say for
sure without an investigation."
Mr Sherman said the staff at
Water and Sewerage "are not
without sin, but things are getting
better, and it takes feedback from
customers in order for improve-
ments to be made."
"The Corporation has commit-


ted itself to several maintenance
programmes, including flushing
and filtering, to ensure the quali-
ty of water distributed to con-
sumers."
He admitted however that it is
possible for engineers to overlook
certain details at times.
On a separate note, Mr Turn-
quest encouraged all Water and
Sewerage customers "to be mind-
ful as we move further into the
hurricane season that inclement
weather usually takes a toll on
the water supply."
He was responding to the
recent trend of low overnight
water pressure in New Provi-
dence.
"Anytime the wind kicks up
during the evening hours, the
water pressure will decrease
because we are being very con-
servative about the supply due to
recent inclement weather trends,"
he said.
Meanwhile, Mr Turnquest said
the Corporation intends to do all
in its power to ensure that the
water supply to households like
the Winton Meadows family is
quickly repaired.

Bahamas 'should allow the


free movement of labour'


THE Bahamas must diversify
in order to expand the economy
said Bahamas Democratic
Movement (BDM) leader Cas-
sius Stuart.
Mr Stuart said yesterday that
nations which allow for the free
movement of labour are
rewarded great benefits.
However, because no
Bahamas government has never
implemented a long term eco-
nomic plan, there is no foresee-
able growth for. the labour
force, he said.


"The free movement of
labour is a part of our future,
and just because the issue of the
CSME is being considered a
dead issue, it does not mean
that these issues shouldn't be
discussed."
Mr Stuart said that because
the Bahamas is seemingly at a
crossroads, "we can't move for-
ward nor can we move back-
ward and that is probably
because we don't know where
we are going."
"In order for us to expand


our economy, we must diversify.
Diversification means to
allow the movement of
skilled labour in manufactur-
ing, textiles, and crafts and oth-
er such industries," he
explained.
He added that the Bahamas
can not continue to have a
"blind approach" to national
development.
"The realities of global trade,
trading blocks and the move-
ment of labour has always been
with us," he said.

FNM leadership hopeful
Dion Foulkes has called for the
establishment of national pro-
grammes to reduce the inci-
dence of criminal activity
among Bahamian youths.
Speaking at the FNM's
Pinewood Constituency Asso-
ciation meeting on Tuesday, Mr
Foulkes said crime attacks the
foundations of a community.
"It destroys the work of
nation building done by the
Church, civic groups, businesses
and the government," he said.
According to Mr Foulkes, if
the Bahamas fails to eradicate
crime Bahamians will become
"unable to parent our children,
pursue our dreams, live in
peace and sustain our tourism
and financial services indus-
tries."
Mr Foulkes said that organ-
ised community-based sporting


activities create positive results
as they encourage participation
and spectatorship, and reduce
youth involvement in "person-
ally and socially destructive"
behaviour.
He said that mass participa-
tion in cultural events such as
Junkanoo would diminish, if not
eliminate, the likelihood of
criminal activity.
He added that community-
based cultural centres such as
jumbey villages should be
encouraged nationwide.
"Cultural programmes and
faith-based initiatives should be
encouraged in our schools to
curb criminal behaviour. I
believe we may use the per-
forming arts to teach people
about nonviolent conflict reso-
lution," he said.
Mr Foulkes suggested
mandatory sentences of com-
munity-based work and enlist-
ment in a National Youth Pro-


gramme for youngsters found
guilty of minor offences.
He urged adults to partici-
pate in mentoring programmes
to help youths develop charac-
ter and urged government to
implement an after school pro-
grammes immediately.

session of dangerous drugs on
Tuesday in Freeport Magis-
trate's Court before Magistrate

He was also charged with
armed robbery and receiving,
to which he was not required

Robert Witajewski to



take command of Iraqi



security forces' training


DEPUTY Chief of Mission
at the American Embassy
Robert Witajewski will be leav-
ing his post in the Bahamas for
a position in Iraq this week.
He has been assigned to take
command of the training of
Iraqi security forces in Sep-
tember this year.
Mr Witajewski has been sta-
tioned in the Bahamas for the
past three years, and says that it
has been "a marvelous assign-
ment".
In his time here, Mr Wita-
jewski says he has accom-
plished many objectives,
including making considerable
progress with the Megaports
initiative in Freeport.
He said this effort will con-
tinue to enhance security in
Grand Bahama.
"All in all", Mr Witajewski
said, "my time here has been
very successful."
Budget
With a $1-billion budget at
his disposal, Mr Witajewski's
assignment in Iraq will be to
head the team attempting to
create and develop an Iraqi
police force.
The task, he acknowledged,
will be a challenging one.
"The Bahamas and Ameri-
ca take for granted having a
trained and impartial police
force that brings law and


order" he said, adding that it
will be his responsibility to cre-
ate this for the Iraqi people.
Iraqi has been frequently
plagued by terrorism since the
US invasion in 2003.
Mr Witajewski said that he
plans "to address the issue of
terrorism by making Iraq a
source of pride and inspiration"
for its people.
Challenge
He will also face the chal-
lenge of ensuring that the new
government in Iraq operates in
a smooth and efficient manner,
which he also admitted "will
not be easy".
"We need to find a way for
the Iraqi people to govern
themselves in a way that they
want to be governed," Mr
Witajewski said.
To do so, he believes that he
will have to do a lot of "learn-
*ing and listening" to determine
the wishes of the Iraqi people
and to see what kind of a
democracy would be best suit-
ed to their cultural and histor-
ical values.
He said that while "it will not
be easy to create a democracy
in this region, it is something
that we have committed money
and lives to .. and we can't
afford to fail, for the sake of
the world."

The Bahamas,


Venezuela and oil


why Leslie Miller just doesn't get it


A FTER Minister
Leslie Miller signed
the Hugo Chavez's Petrocaribe
Agreement, reporters contacted
me seeking a response to com-
ments by certain analysts who
said that the agreement was


Chavez's attempt to use cheap-
er oil to stoke the US by pro-
moting an alternative regional
economic integration arrange-
ment to the FTAA.
They wanted to know if I
agreed with those analysts and
thought the USA might react

negatively to the Bahamas sign-
ing. As I had not seen the ana-
lysts' comments or read any
press reports on the same, I
refused to make any comments
until I had done so. After doing
so, I took questions from one
of the reporters.
Responding to questions, I
made three points to the
reporter.
First, I was interested to
know whether Minister Miller
went to the Energy Summit
of Caribbean Heads of State
and Government in Puerto
La Cruz, Venezuela with
"express" instructions from the
Cabinet of the Bahamas to sign
the agreement or did the min-
ister take it upon himself to do


The USA could
take exception
to the signing of
the Petrocaribe
Agreement, given
its concerns
over the politics
and policies of
Presidents
Chavez and
Fidel Castro,
both of whom
were prominent
proponents of
the agreement


so. This was important because,
if it was the Bahamas Cabinet's
considered determination to
sign the agreement, then one
would wish to know the ratio-
nale for doing so before making
any further response to the
signing. If on the other hand,
Mr Miller signed the agreement

on his own, one could dismiss it
as another one of his acts that
the Cabinet might correct.
Second, I noted that it would
be useful for the government to
inform the Bahamian public of
the full details of the agreement,
so that it could know what were
the Bahamas' obligations and
what were benefits to be
received.
Third, I pointed out that mat-
ters of international relations
ought to be considered carefully,
as any action taken in the inter-
national arena could send sig-
nals to both one's allies and foes.
On further pressing,'I pointed
out that it was conceivable that
the USA could take exception
to the signing of the Petrocaribe
Agreement, given its concerns
over the politics and policies of
Presidents Chavez and Fidel
Castro, both of whom were
promilinent proponents of the
agreement.

My curiosity about
Minister Miller
being in Venezuela signing the
Petrocaribe Agreement while
his colleague Minister of For-
eign Affairs, Fred Mitchell, was
in St Lucia at the Twenty Sixth
Regular Meeting of the Heads
of Government of the
Caribbean Community (CARI-
COM) promoting Caribbean
integration, and where Trinidad
and Barbados were expressing
concerns about the Petrocaribe
agreement came later. I ques-
tioned whether the Bahamas'
foreign policy was coordinated.
My three pivotal points
remain as relevant and true now
as they were when I first made
them. Leslie Miller's ranting
and ravings do not change the
price of oil in this regard. There
is nothing "underhanded" about
them.
In fact, .this writer has it on
good authority that Washing-
ton is concerned about the sign-
ing of the Petrocaribe Agree-
ment, though it will not likely
admit the same publicly and
that Cabinet ministers may not
have known that Mr Miller
would sign the agreement.

Further, it seems clear
that even Mr Miller did
not know what he was signing
because he quite ignorantly
believed that what he signed
was only about cheaper oils,
when the agreement itself says
that its fundamental objective
was, "to contribute to the ener-
gy security, the social and eco-
nomic development and the
integration of the countries of


the Caribbean through the sov-
ereign use of energy resources
based entirely on the principles
for integration referred to as
the Bolivarian Alternative for
the Americas (ALBA)". How
much clearer does it need to be
than that?
Mr Miller's concerns about
my Christianity are as relevant
to this Petrocaribe issue as my
concerns .about his curious fur-
niture moving behaviour.
The fact is that the Bahamas
is a nation and it should have a
sensible, rational and unified
foreign policy.
It should not have a foreign
policy based upon the emotion-
al, ill-considered shenanigans
of a self-promoting, seemingly
irrational personality.
MINISTER MILLER'S
OIL-MARGIN ILLUSIONS

Mr Miller tried to give
the impression that
the present 77 cents oil margin
was put in place by this writer
when he was Minister of Eco-
nomic Development.
The fact is that almost 50 per
cent of the 77 cents was given
by the first PLP administration
and the largest ever increase
given was given by that admin-
istration in 1973, 13 cents to
suppliers and 17 cents to retail-
ers.
Before the five per cent 2001
margin increase, none had been
given in seven years. Addition-
ally, The Standard and Poors
Energy Outlook forecasted that
oil prices would decrease by
about 27 per cent. Indeed, oil
prices did decrease as predicted
and the price of gas at the.
pumps did not increase much
above the $2.60 being experi-
enced at the time.
This is why there was no pub-
lic outcry as there is today. Giv-
ing the margin increase in 2001
was a tough decision but it was
made to save the jobs of hun-
dreds of poor gas pump atten-
dants and store clerks, which
were being threatened by gas
operators threatening to move
to self-service.
Mr Miller complains that he
is trying to fix a problem creat-
ed by this writer. How absurd!
Mr Miller is playing a foolish
trick on Bahamians. No cabi-
net minister can single-handed-
ly change the oil margin; it is
something the collective cabi-
net must authorise. If Mr Miller
and his government believes
that the five per cent oil margin
increase given by the Cabinet
in 2001 is bad, by a stroke of
their pens, they can remove it.-


In fact, they can remove all of
the government's margins given
over the past 20-plus years; the
power to do so is theirs.
Mr Miller's pathetic act that
he is a besieged minister fight-
ing against great odds is in my
opinion a big fat lie. He and his
colleagues have the power to;
change the price of oil at the,
pump today. All this talk about
energy corporation and Petro-
caribe is unnecessary. The gov-
ernment can reduce the price
of gas at the pumps right this
instance by more than $1. Why;
don't they? Minister Miller, the
crusader, knows why, so he
should stop playing the fool,
even if it is difficult for him to
do so.
WAS WESTERN AIR
VICTIMISED?

F rom the facts so far avail-
able, it would seem that
Minister of Immigration and
Labour, Vincent Peet, has unjust-
ly handled Western Air. West-
ern Air has been treated differ-
ently than foreign investor Ger-
ardo Capo, who has an excessive
number of foreigners workers on
his Bimini Bay project.
These foreign workers, con-
trary to government policy, are
not doing specialised jobs but
rather ordinary construction
work. They were given work
permits by the government
essentially to reduce Mr Capo's
construction cost. Mr Peet
admitted as much of this in the
House of Assembly when chal-
lenged on the matter by former
Prime Minister, Hubert Ingra-
ham.
This notwithstanding, noth-
ing has been done to date to
adjust the situation. Foreign
investor Capo gets to keep as
many foreign workers as he
wants. Yet, the Bahamian
investors of Western Air, pro-
viding a meaningful service to
both the Bahamian public and
visitors to our Family Islands,
do not get the same treatment
by the government.
Rather than work with the
proprietors of Western Air, the
Immigration Department,
which is in Mr Peet's portfolio,
mercilessly orders six of the
company's foreign workers,
including four pilots, one of
whom was the chief pilot who
trains Bahamians, out of the
country, virtually crippling the
airline.

WXhy could not Mr
Peet show the same
tolerance and courtesy to West-
ern Air, as he has shown to
Capo and so many other for-
eign investors? Given, the valu-
able service the small airline
provides to the society, includ-
ing on numerous occasions, to
the minister in both his person-
al and public capacities, why
could he not have entered a
more amicable arrangement
with the airline to ensure that
the service went on with the
least amount of interruption?
Why would he feel no pain
about causing an enterprise
built by the sweat, tears and
capital of ordinary Bahamians
to be put at great risk of closing
down? Why would he not feel
any need to protect the jobs of
some 90 Bahamians who work
for the company? If as he says,
there are so many Bahamian
pilots available, why could he
not work with the company to
secure those pilots in a timely
way rather than shut the opera-
tion down?
Could the answer to these
questions be that Mr Peet was
peeved that one of the compa-
ny's proprietors has been speak-
ing up for her island and may be
a candidate against him in the
next election, with growing sup-
port from North Andros resi-
dents? Did he hope to intimi-
date and silence any such pos-
sibility? Was the minister's
actions in the best tradition of
fair and unbiased public ser-
vice? Was Western Air vic-
timised? These are interesting
questions with which the public
will grapple for some time.
This much is true: we must
not go back to the days of old,
when those in power blatantly
and pervasively used that pow-
er to victimise the people they
were to serve; not 32 years fol-
lowing independence.

take over operations.
Health Minister Dr Marcus
Bethel, however, explained
yesterday that as the camp is a
privately operated organisa-
tion, government would not
step in unless asked to do so.
"Once they have again
organised themselves, they
would have to officially
request support from the gov-
ernment, this request would
then be reviewed," he said.
Earlier this week the health
minister said that the camp
has played a very important
role in the country's care and
treatment programme and
that he hoped the hospice's
work would continue.
Dr Nottage explained that
since its inception, the All
Saints Camp of John Divine,
which provides shelter and
support for AIDS victims, has
faced opposition from "all
segments" of society, both pri-
vate and government.
"(The camp) has existed
under both governments, and
neither has supported it," he
remarked.
Dr Nottage said that if gov-
-ernment intends to "take
over" the hospice in any way,
"we first have to see if they
have the wherewithal to do
it."
He explained that the fam-
ily of Rev Nottage is able to
maintain the operations at the
camp and is committed to see-
ing.his brother's work contin-
ued:
"The family is committed


All Saints

to maintain the high standards
and kind of compassion that
was evident during the life of
Rev Nottage. As long as the
problem of AIDS exists in our
society, the camp will contin-
ue," he said.
Dr Nottage said that it
would be a sad reflection on
the legacy of Rev Nottage,
who "by the sweat of his
brow" founded the camp and
kept it running, if the
facility would now be aban-
doned.
On the question of the cur-
rent ownership of the All
Saints camp, Dr Nottage said
he did not wish go into detail,
as he hoped to avoid the camp
becoming the centre of con-
troversy.
"Although Rev Nottage
was the founder and the dri-
ving force behind the camp,
it is also run by a foundation
which has a board of direc-
tors.
"At an appropriate time
after the board members are
able to meet and discuss the
future of the camp, they will
issue a statement," he said.
Dr Nottage added that if
government wished to get
involved with the camp, it
would then be in the spirit of
community interest, "without
discord."
Rev Nottage died on July
10, after having spent more
than a month in the intensive
care unit of the Princess Mar-
garet Hospital.

mother's home on Carmichael Road.
She testified that she told her father to
head to the airport road, and when he
reached the round-about, she pointed out
the way and they drove straight to the
':Garden of Eden, where Mr Fernander's
home is located.
She told the court that after pointing
out the home, her father turned around
and headed back to the Carmichael home,
stopping only to "buy numbers" on the
way.
Terah Smith's mother, Sandra Bethel,
testified that her daughter's three grand-
children now lived with her.
Mrs Smith had two other daughters,
Letisha and Letika, the court heard from
the deceased's cousin, Philippa Armbrister.
Also taking the stand Wednesday was
Mr Fernander's estranged wife, Adeline
Fernander.
She told the court that she was still in a
relationship with Mr Fernander, but they
had not lived together since 1999, after 11
years of marriage.

lawyer Murrio Ducille, Mrs Fernander
said she was told of a relationship her hus-

He was working the night before he was
killed, according to two employees who
took the stand. Martha Forbes and Mil-
dred Brennen said they were cleaning a
series of Commonwealth Bank branches
that night. They said they stopped work
about 2.15am, and were dropped home by
their boss. They were the last who were
reported to have seen him alive.
Mr Fernander's neighbours, Ella Davis
and William Wong, also took the witness
stand yesterday. They both testified that
they heard several gunshots and saw a red
coloured hatchback speeding up the hill
away from an area near Mr Fernander's
home.
Mr Ducille asked Mr Wong if another
neighbour, the Reckley's had a car of sim-
ilar description, to which he replied: "Yes".
Letisha Colebrooke testified before Sir
Burton Hall that she loaned her red-
coloured hatchback to the defendant on
July 21, 2000.
The alleged girlfriend of double mur-
der accused Henry Hugh Smith also took
the witness stand when the trial resumed
yesterday afternoon.
Precilla Cox testified that she had known

grateful for the confidence he
placed in me. He is truly a great
leader and he knows he will be
able to count on my full sup-

Mrs McWeeney also thanked
Senate President Sharon Wil-
son, her Senate colleagues and
the Senate staff for all


prior to July 20, 2000 and that she and Mr
Smith, with whom she had become
acquainted through her uncle, had been
"seeing each other" before the murders.
Cox said that on the day of the inci-
dent she saw Smith at Madeira Street as
she was preparing to take a bus home from
work sometime around 5.30 that after-
noon. She said that Smith was driving a
dark red Hyundai Accent. With him was
his brother, Jeff, and another man. She.
said Smith asked her if she wanted a ride,
and she said "yes." Cox told the jury that
she got into the car with the men and
Smith proceeded to a location in the area
of Purity Bakery where Cox said that
Smith went to ask the owner of the car if
she wanted a ride as well. Cox said that
Smith dropped the other gentleman off
before taking her home. She said that
Smith told her that he would return later
that night and did sometime after 10pm.
The prosecution called three other
female witnesses to the stand. However,
the lawyer for the accused challenged the
admissibility of their evidence on the
grounds of relevancy and hearsay.
Bernadette Brennen, a custodian of doc-
uments in the divorce and matrimony reg-
istry of the Supreme Court confirmed that
Terah Smith had filed a petition seeking
the dissolution of her marriage to Smith.
The murder trial continues today in the
Supreme Court.

"I am a Bahamian patriot to
the core. You can therefore be
assured, Madam president,
that I will continue to serve
my country to the very best of
my ability in all that I do."


Following her resignation,
Mrs Wilson and the other Sen-
ators on both sides gave Mrs
McWeeney their full support
and best wishes.
Mrs McWeeny was appointed
a PLP senator shortly after the
May 2, 2002 election by the
newly elected Prime Minister
Perry Christie.

dard and is based solely on who comes into the casino. It is
important to note that if no one comes into the casino, gov-
ernment does not collect tax," he said.
The minister said that experts have told government that
even if the Isle of Capri's taxes were to be reduced to nine
percent and the casino received more money for promotion,
their operating costs would still be high because of their lease
with Hutchison Wampoa.
Mr Wilchcombe said that the casino had been in talks with
government to change its marketing approach before the layoffs
took place.
He pointed out that government had provided everything it
had agreed without making any extraordinary demands on the
resort.
"They initially told us that the casino was not intended to
reward some of their clientele. Now that they want it to be
more profitable, which means that they need the dollars to get
business," he said.
Mr Wilchcombe said he was disappointed by the Isle of
Capri's decision, particularly because of the financial situation
in which Grand Bahama residents now find themselves.
"These are not actions of people who are in negotiations, you
don't do this without sufficient warning," he said.
Speaking with The Tribune from Grand Bahama yesterday,
Immigration and Labour Minister Vincent Peet said he was
meeting with hotel management.
"I am concerned about the way it was done and why gov-
ernment was not given a heads up. So I am in Grand Bahama to
find out why this was not done in a more appropriate way
instead of having people suddenly on the street," he said.
The layoffs come at a time when thousands of hotel workers
are still unemployed because of the closure of the Royal Oasis
Resort following last year's hurricanes.
The casino, which opened in 2003, employed more than 300
workers.
Mr Wilchcombe said that government is working to ensure
that hotels will once again be opened on Grand Bahama and will
continue to negotiate for the reopening of the Royal Oasis.
"We will get tourist numbers up in Grand Bahama it is
important to us and an important component of our strategy,"
he said.

San Andros airport

FROM page one

San Andros airport as the gateway to North Andros, the fire is
having a "dramatic" and "negative" impact on the economy.
With the loss of the airport, not only is it more difficult for res-
idents of North Andros to leave the island but it is more diffi-
cult for potential visitors to get to the island.
Service station and restaurant proprietors in the surrounding
area said they have not seen any significant changes in their busi-
ness revenues since the fire but they, all reported that the bulk
of their business is generated from locals living in the settlement.
Western Air has probably suffered the most significant loss as
it has had no business since the fire destroyed their offices.
With the island's All Island Regatta just days away residents
are worried that the events won't generate the large crowds to
the island as in previous years.
Minister Peet assured The Tribune yesterday, that although
the loss of the airport will have a negative effect on the econo-
my, all efforts are being made to ensure that the regatta will be
a success. Mr Peet said, chartered flights will be flying in and out
of the island all weekend and the regular mail boats and fast fer-
ries also will be available.
"Andros is going to be having a very large number of visitors
coming in for the regatta weekend this year. We will make
every effort to ensure its success," he said.
He said temporary facilities will be put in place sometime in
the near future to accommodate flights coming into and leaving
North Andros.

Educator calls for system to stop




culture of violence among youth


* BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT A former edu-
cator is calling for the estab-
lishment of a national advocacy
system for the development of
the country's youth.
Joseph Darville, director of
workforce development at the
Grand Bahama Shipyard, said
such a system is needed to stem
the disturbing trend of youth
violence and abuse.


Mr Darville said a strategy
for the creation of programmes
and policies to enhance the total
development of the youth is
long overdue.
"Violence has now become a
social disease enculturated into
the mindset of many of our
young," he said, adding that
brutality, murder and rape are
becoming increasingly preva-
lent.
Mr Darville was speaking to
the Rotary Club of Lucaya on


Tuesday, on the topic "Caring
for our nation's youth: whose
responsibility is it?"

Skills

He said it was crucial for
young people to be equipped
with skills to resolve conflicts
without having to resort to
physical violence.
Mr Darville said that single
mothers head 75 per cent


of households in the Bahamas,
but many of them cannot sup-
ply the basic needs of their chil-
dren.
As a consequence, young
men get caught up in criminal
activities to supply their needs,
while girls as young as 11 years
prostitute themselves even
with the tacit approval of their
mothers.
Mr Darville said there is more
than $2 billion sitting in
Bahamian banks which could


be used for the creation of jobs
and meaningful programmes for
youth.
"Any country which aban-
dons its young at age 16, like
we do, by sending them forth
in an abyss of uncertainty, sets
itself up for ultimate internal
disintegration," he said.
"Poverty, in its most deep-
est and most abject state, will
be the heritage of our future
generations unless we as
adults assure every one of our


young men and women mean-
ingful occupation when they
exit the halls of our high
schools.
"Even if a small number of
Bahamian merchants who pos-
sess 90 percent of the nation's
wealth do not invest in the
nation's youth, we as concerned
adults should be determined to
marshal other resources in
order to awaken the conscience
and the consciousness of our
people."

WITH the advent of the 2005
hurricane season, the Ameri-
can government has "strongly
encouraged" its citizens in the
Caribbean to register with the
US Embassy.
A release from the US
Embassy in Nassau said this
should be done "in order to
facilitate communications and
emergency services in the event
of a tropical storm or hurri-
cane".
US citizens can also get in


touch with their government
through the Department of
State's travel registration web-
site at http://travelregistra-
tion.state.gov.

gencies_1207.html.
The National Weather Ser-


vice has predicted as many as
15 tropical storms for 2005.
Up to nine of those storms
may become hurricanes, and
three to five of them may devel-
op into major hurricanes.
In 2004, tropical storms and
hurricanes caused widespread
damage and casualties, includ-
ing the temporary closure of
affected US Embassies and
Consulates and the evacuation
of US citizens from affected
areas.

SUMMER ADVENTURE

N TOURISM & SOCIAL STUDIES
A 2-Hour Bus Tour of Nassau's Fors & Historic Landmarks


Il BY DENISE MAYCOCK
STribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT THE Minister
of Tourism has announced that
another major film will follow
the Pirates of the Caribbean
sequels into production on
Grand Bahama.
* Obie Wilchcombe was speak-
ing about the prospects for the
film industry in Grand Bahama
during a tour of the60-million-
gallon water enclosure and
movie production facility which
is currently being constructed
at the Bahamas Film Studios at
Gold Rock Creek.
"So far it has been a good
year and over the next couple of
months we will see greater
efforts made by the Bahamas
Film Commission to attract
even more movies and produc-
tion of drama series to the
Bahamas," the minister said.
."I am not at liberty to say
yet, but a major film will
follow with even bigger
stars to Grand Bahama for


another major movie."
The original 50-million gal-
lon enclosure had been modi-
fied and expanded for the film-
ing in September of Disney's
Pirates of the Caribbean II and
III here on Grand Bahama.

Construction

At the Gold Rock Beach,
workers were busy installing
and connecting equipment
devices in pylons that control
movements of the ships during
filming in the enclosure.
Several buildings at the old
Missile Base are being refur-
bished for storage of costumes,
props, and other production
equipment.
About 125 Bahamians are
employed for the construction
and security at Gold Rock
Creek.
"This is a mammoth effort
and the equipment that is here
is a clear indication that this will
be a big production," Mr Wilch-


combe said.
Disney had initially planned
to start shooting in June, but
went on hiatus until September.
The film is expected to inject
some $30 to $40million directly
into the Grand Bahama econo-
my.
This summer, Quantum
Entertainment and Braveheart
Films were on location in Grand
Bahama for filming of Blue 14,
another major motion picture.
Mr Wilchcombe said his min-
istry is seriously promoting the
island of Grand Bahamas as a
destination for major movie
films.
"Pirates of the Caribbean will
give Grand Bahama the kind of
exposure that is going to create
interest and generate business
for the island.
"It will give Grand Bahama
the brand as a tourist destina-
tion which we have been unable
to do," he said.
The minister also said that he
hopes tours of the pirate ships
would be available to guests.


Development to be

,completed next year


A 79-UNIT "luxury residen-
tial complex" is being devel-
oped on Paradise Island.
Peace Holdings Limited, a
Bahamian-owned development
company based in the Bahamas,
'xpects to complete Ocean
'Place On the Harbour by the
: ind of 2006.
The development is located
,between the Paradise Harbour
SClub and Ocean Club Estates.
, Ocean Place director Rod
!Smith said the development
includes two levels of under-
ground parking with private ele-
vators that take residents direct-
ly from their cars to their
.homes.
"We have made sure that
every residence incorporates the
* expansive views of the sea, golf
course and Paradise Island.
"We also recognise that while
people want to enjoy the many
restaurants and activities that


Paradise Island offers, they also
want to go home and relax in a
comfortable, private and secure
environment. We offer the best
of both worlds," Mr Smith said.
Included with each residence
is a marina slip and access to
Cabbage Beach.
"The real estate market has
shown a great deal of excite-
ment about this project and this
is evident by the fact that 11
real estate companies partici-
pated in our reservation pro-
gramme. We have now moved
into binding sales and the pro-
ject is moving full speed ahead,"
said Mr Smith.
The company has a diverse
and extensive background in
condominium and high rise
development, having built 2000
units a year on the west coast of
the United States, as well as in
Hawaii, Australia and other
locations.

Residential development to have




$lbn impact on GDP in 12 years


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
A "UNIQUE" high-end residential
community planned for southwestern
New Providence has been projected
to inject a cumulative $1 billion in extra
gross domestic product (GDP) into the
Bahamian economy over its first 12
years of existence, creating a total of
1100 jobs once,it becomes fully opera-
tional.
Christopher Anand, managing part-
ner for the Albany Project develop-
ment, yesterday told The Tribune that
the upscale community would be


"something special" and act as a "cat-
alyst" and "economic engine" for the
entire surrounding area, with the ben-
efits not confined to the development
itself.
He said the economic impact assess-
ment, conducted in conjunction with
the Government, had shown that the
Albany Project would generate 700
permanent, full-time jobs. A further
400 "indirect and induced" jobs would
be generated from entrepreneurial ven-
tures and other spin-offs.
Mr Anand said the economic study
had also shown that the Albany Project
would generate $400 million in prop-


erty taxes for the Government during
its first 12 years' in existence, with the
$1 billion GDP impact over the same
timeline coming from both the con-
struction and operational phases.

Assessment

In 2017, the Albany Project is
expected to generate $67 million in
annual GDP from ongoing operations
alone, according to the economic
impact assessment.
In an exclusive interview with The
Tribune, Mr Anand said the Albany


development will include 300 single
family homes, a "cottage component"
and apartments located around a mari-
na.
The price range for the properties
will lie between $2 million and $20 mil-
lion, with the average around $3-$4
million. Mr Anand said the total value
of the Albany Project's "home prod-
ucts" would lie between $1.2 billion
and $1.5 billion.
The three major shareholders and
investors in the Albany Project are the
Tavistock Group, the holding company
for Lyford Cay-based billionaire Joe
Lewis's worldwide investments, and


world-leading golfers Ernie Els and
Tiger Woods.
The development itself will be locat-
ed on the Albary House property,
which most Bahamians know as the
property behind the long pink wall on
Adelaide Road as they drive towards
South Ocean, and other landholdings
on the opposite side of the road.
The land is all privately owned by
the Tavistock Group's Bahamian sub-
sidiary, New Providence Development
Company.
Mr Anand, who is also a director of

BISX share index

* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
INCREASED investor
appetite for equities contin-
ued to drive the Bahamas
International Securities
Exchange's (BISX) All-Share
Index, as it rose by 7.05 per
cent or 77.29 points during the
2005 second quarter to close at
1,174.01.
Compared to the previous
year's second quarter, which
also closed on June 30, the
All-Share Index was up by
200.78 points, reflecting


increased demand as retail and
institutional investor confi-
dence in the Bahamian capital
markets and improving wider
economy continues to grow.
The total volume of shares
traded during the 2005 second
quarter was 925,118, a 52.36.
per cent rise on the 607,212
stocks traded in the compara-
tive period last year.
There was a 10.05 per cent
increase in the total value of

INVESTORS behind the multi-million

The Public Utilities Com-
mission (PUC) has finally
approved Caribbean Crossings'
$45 million Jamaica Bahamas
Cable System (JBCS),
although it was unclear last
night whether the Cable
Bahamas subsidiary would
proceed with the project.
Barry Williams, Cable
Bahamas' finance director,


partner and a director for one of the major
investors, the Tavistock Group, yesterday
said Albany was already being marketed to
"one hell of a list of prospects" that includ-
ed wealthy Bahamians, as well as leading
international celebrities and sporting per-
sonalities, plus top business executives.
He told TheTribune: "It's going to be a
pretty unbelievable group of people. What
we are finding is that a lot of people had not
considered owning a home in the Bahamas.


was unavailable for comment
last night as The Tribune went
to press, but this newspaper
understands that the time tak-
en to approve the $45 million
development through altering
Caribbean Crossings' licence
has seriously disrupted the
company's construction sched,
ule and financing plans.

FROM page one
the Tavistock Group, said the
Albany Project's homes was
being marketed to "a pretty
unbelievable group" of poten-
tial buyers that included world-
famous celebrities, major sport-
ing stars andiwealthy business-
men (see associated story on
this page)jThe prospective
clients inclUde Bahamians and
non-Bahamians.
The investors and the Gov-
ernment are in negotiations on
a Heads of Agreement for the
development, and Mr Anand
praised the administration for
being "extremely reasonable"
and seeking "to do the right
thing".
He explained that it "would
be easy to see a project like this
and give us what we want", but
the Government was being
"diligent" to ensure the Albany


Project fitted into its wider eco-
nomic and social development
plans.
Once a Heads of Agreement
is reached, the investors are
hoping to begin construction of
the amenities and initial home
sites at the Albany Project in
summer 2006.
That work is expected to take
between 18-20 months, and the
community itself will open at
some point between Christmas
2007 and Spring 2008.
Mr Anand said the full-time
jobs created by the Albany
Project would run "the full
gamut" from high-income to
low-income professions,
including doctors, lawyers,
dentists, engineers, landscap-
ers, designers, maintenance
and golf course workers and
cleaners.
Adding that the investors
would be "on a hell of a hiring


spree" once negotiations with
the Government were conclud-
ed, Mr Anand said the goal was
to maximise the use of Bahami-
an labour during both the con-
struction and operational phas-
es as this was the only way "to
make it work".
Apart from committing to
training programmes for
Bahamians and equipping them
with high-quality skills, Mr
Anand said employees would
also be sent on "sabbaticals" to
the Tavistock Group's existing
high-end residential communi-
ties at Lake Nona and Isle-
worth, both located near Orlan-
do, Florida.
"Our goal really is to create
the best of the best," Mr Anand
said. "It's really about building
something special and doing
something good for our cus-
tomers and good for the
Bahamas."

Commission approves


new cable project


FROM page one
back in January, but it has taken the PUC
some six months longer to approve the pro-
ject at the Bahamas end.
However, the statement of results for the
consultation on modifications to Caribbean
Crossings' licence was approved on May 26,
but the final sign off on the changes did not
take place until July 8.
Cable Bahamas' owns 100 per cent of
Caribbean Crossings. Its major sharehold-
er, Ironbound Communications, which acts as
the investment vehicle for chairman Brendan
Paddick and his associates, earlier this year
announced a deal to purchase a majority
stake in New World Networks, the company
that owns and operates the ARCOS fibre
optic telecommunications network that links
the Bahamas, Caribbean and Latin America
with the US.
It is possible that Ironbound may concen-
trate its efforts on New World Networks and,
frustrated by the delay in the Bahamas,
decide not to proceed with the JBCS sys-
tem. That project was set to be part-financed
by a $25 million preference share issue.
The PUC said that approving Caribbean
Crossings' project would "not dilute the spe-
cial rights" of the Bahamas Telecommuni-
cations Company (BTC) in relation to fixed-
line voice services, and it was therefore in the
public interest to approve JBCS.
BTC had argued that the conditions the
PUC proposed to impose on Caribbean
Crossings were "insufficient to protect the
special rights" it held on voice telephony.


The incumbent carrier had proposed that
extra text be added to the modified licence
"to commit other operators in relation to
the provision of voice telephony and Voice
over Internet Protocol, and in relation to
their interconnect arrangements with
Caribbean Crossings".
But the PUC rejected BTC's arguments. It
said the condition it proposed to impose in
Caribbean Crossings' licence, when added
to the existing prohibition on carrying voice
telephony, "adequately protects against any
unlawful dilution of BTC's special right in
relation to voice telephony".
The PUC added that the additional lan-
guage that BTC had proposed for Caribbean
Crossings' licence "was not appropriate in a
licence issued to Caribbean Crossings alone.
"'The imposition of a sanctions regime in
the Caribbean Crossings licence that exceed-
ed the regime in other licences would be dis-
criminatory," the PUQ found.
BTC was the only party to oppose the
Caribbean Crossings application, but the
PUC rejected its arguments that the propos-
al should be turned down because the Cable
Bahamas subsidiary had not obtained the
required environmental approvals or landing
rights from other government agencies. The
telecommunications regulator said these
issues were for other authorities to decide.
The PUC also rejected BTC's argument
that the application should be rejected
because Caribbean Crossings should show
it was complying with all existing laws and
regulations, saying it was not aware of any
current breaches.

operators to pay strict attention
to the ratings given by the gov-
ernment-appointed board.
She said, though, that the onus
is also on parents to follow the
guidelines. She said that once par-
ents see a certain rating has been
Given to a movie, it is up to them
whether they will allow their chil-
dren to see the movie. Parents, Ms
Turnquest-Liriano said, must take
some responsibility in the matter.
The renewed call for compliance
comes after a long Independence
holiday weekend. The Tribune
understands that children were
allowed to view The Fantastic
Four, a highly publicised summer
blockbuster US release based on a
comic strip of the same name.
Many adults were likely to have
assumed that because the movie
was based on a children's cartoon,
it would be eligible for their chil-
dren. Many turned up in scores to
see the movie, along with their
young ones.
The Control Board, however,
gave the movie a T-rating, because
of the level of violence in the
movie. Patrons were told by the
ticket office cashiers that there
were no children's tickets for this
movie.


A T-rating allows anyone 15
years and older to view the movie.
Eyebrows were raised, though,
when parents and guardians were
informed that if they wanted their
children to see the movie they
would have to purchase an adult-
priced ticket.
According to Ms Turnquest-
Liriano, in May, the Control
Board met with the proprietors of
Galleria Cinemas, when they drew
a similar matter to their attention.
At the meeting, the owners were
said to have told Board members
that they were unaware of such a
practice and they would inform
their ticket office personnel of
what the proper procedure should
be. While the Act that governs the
sector allows for a fine, the Control
Board gave them a warning.
"This is not the first time we've
heard this complaint. We gave
them some leeway because,
according to the owners, they were
hearing it for the first time," Ms
Turnquest-Liriano
"They should adhere to all of
the ratings that is the official
rating to be used while movies are
being played in the Bahamas.
There are fines in place that can be
levied when they do not adhere to
rules and regulation, but unless it's
brought to our attention to be


addressed we are unaware of what
they are doing."
Ms Turnquest-Liriano also not-
ed that the laws governing the sec-
tor are antiquated, allowing the
Board to levy fines of some $2,000
for breaches of the Act, a sum she
described as nothing when com-
pared with the revenue the movie
theatre is making.
The control board is reviewing
the Act, and is expected to sub-
mit to the Ministry of National
Security a draft of what they would
like to see in the law.
The Ministry is also working
with the Attorney General's Office
in an attempt to make the law "
clearer and the penalties stiffer.
"When you are looking to
impact them and make them con-
scious of what they are doing, you
have to make the penalties stiffer,"
Ms Turnquest-Liriano said.
Officials at Galleria Cinemas
declined to comment on the mat-
ter.
The Board has issued the fol-
lowing ratings for movies in the
Bahamas. A means that the niovie
is open to the general public; B
means that parental guidance is
needed, a C-rating means the
movie is to be shown to adults&
only; and a movie rated T is open'
to anyone 15 years and older.

are world-famous golfers Ernie
Els and Tiger Woods.
The latter duo already have
homes at the Tavistock Group's
existing high-end residential
communities in the US, Lake
Nona and Isleworth near Orlan-
do, and Mr Anand described
the Albany Project as being
"born out of that lineage".
He added that per capita
annual income among the com-
munity near Isleworth, which
had been built "in the middle
of an orange grove", was now
three times greater than that of
Orlando.
Both Mr Els and Mr Woods
are set to be "very involved in
shaping" the Albany communi-
ty and who its residents are,
joining the Tavistock Group to
"create a special place" where
they would own homes and
spend time.
Their names, and the Tavis-
tock Group's reputation as
"the foremost developer of "


very high end exclusive resi-
dential real estate", were the
attraction that will bring top-
end clients to Albany, Mr
Anand explained.
As a result, he said the
investors would "know the pro-
ject will be successful before we
start". "Knowing the customer
base, we're not going to be
speculating," Mr Anand said.
"We know it's going to be a suc-
cess before we start."
The project is already being
marketed to potential clients
via CNBC, the Golf Channel
and Sky Sports in the UK, Mr
Anand said.
It was formally launched on
March 29, during the Tavis-
tock Cup, a mini-Ryder Cup-
style event organised by the
Tavistock Group, which fea-
tures Mr Els, Mr Woods and a
host of other top golfing pro-
fessionals.
Mr Anand said CNBC filmed

view between himself, Mr
Woods and Mr Els on the

Mr Anand told The Tribune.
He said the Albany Project

The Albany Project will fea-

HAC _14B,_[HHSD/_,_Ui_14SPORTSI NIBUNI bf-'UK-I &


* By RENALDO
DORSETT
Junior Sports
Reporter
NEARLY 1,000
youngsters stormed the
country's top sporting
facilities yesterday, to
begin a summer of fun,
athletics, and educa-
tion.
The Ministry of
Youth Sports and Cul-
ture began its 25th
annual Summer Pro-
gramme at the Queen's
Elizabeth Sports
Center and at
various sporting loca-
tions around the coun-
try.
The camp, which
began almost three
decades ago as the
Mychal
Thompson/Osborne
Lockhart Summer Bas-
ketball Camp, has
moved on leaps and
bounds to include a
number of other sport-
ing disciplines.
The programme,
which is completely
funded by the ministry,
annually offers an off-
season training oppor-
tunity for older high-
school students and
introduces a number of
others to sports for the
first time.
Director of sports
Martin Lundy said the
programme serves
many purposes that
benefit students young
and old.
"The programme was
created to provide a
wholesome recreation-
al outlet for children
during summer vaca-
tion," he said.
"It also provides
summer employment
for high school gradu-
ates and college stu-
dents."
Lundy said the camp
has expanded in
tremendous fashion.

Demand
"The programme
started out as a basket-
ball camp named after
Mychal "Sweet Bells"
Thompson and
Osbourne "Goose"
Lockhart," Lundy
added. "Now it has
evolved to include oth-
er disciplines other
than basketball.
because of the high
demand for other
sports like softball,
baseball, soccer swim-
ming, boxing, netball,
volleyball, dance and
many others."
He.said the ministry
ensured the youngsters
will be able to progress
throughout the summer
by offering them use of
some of the nation's
best facilities.
"We offer around 15
activities, all of the
facilities at the sports
centre are being
utilised, including the
Blue Hills Sports Com-
plex and South Beach
Swimming Pools.
"In addition to that
we have a number of
satellite camps at the
boxing sites and parks
around the island."
This year's pro-
gramme features a
number of new ele-
ments including a com-
puter camp at the
Kendal G.L. Issacs
Gymnasium.
Camp Director, Oria
Wood, said the com-


puters class is just one
of.the features which
makes this camp bigger
than any other in histo-
ry.
"We've also added
several new compo-
nents including netball,
health and physical fit-
ness," she said, "We
already have over 900
kids participating and
this is just the first day
of camp."


Paying tribute to a hugely





successful championships


T WILL probably go
down as one of the most
successful hosting of the Col-
inalmperial Senior Central
American and Caribbean
Championships.
The Bahamas Association
of Athletic Associations may
have set a precedent that will
be hard to follow when the
championships switch to
Venezuela in 2007.
The prize money imple-
mented for the first time in
the 20th edition of the cham-
pionships certainly inspired
the performances of many of
the athletes, who, otherwise,
may not have attended what
is considered the biggest
regional meet.
When the figures are final-
ly calculated, they will prob-
ably show that the Cubans
have reaped the lion's share,
not just because they came
and they conquered the com-
petition, but because of the
fact that they performed
exceptionally well in setting
a number of championship
records, which carried some
bonus cash incentives.
It remains to be seen if the
momentum that was started
by the organising committee,
headed by Dr. Bernard Not-
tage, in providing the cash
incentives can be matched, or
surpassed in the future.
Who knows?
With the Chinese Govern-


STUBBS


OPINION


ment hoping to have the new
stadium completed by 2007,
the Bahamas could possibly
play host to the 2009 champi-
onships.
Although the preparation
work was still going on at the
11th hour, the TAR Stadium
was transformed into a venue
that was appreciated by both
the fans and the athletes.
The Bahamas Government
and the Ministry of Youth,


Sports and Culture should be
commended for the $100,000-
plus that was pumped into
giving the stadium a facelift.
But the question is: How
long will we be able to main-
tain the stadium in this man-
ner?
As for the press, while it
was good to be sitting in a ful-
ly air-conditioned room with
free access to both the toll-
free telephone and the wire-
less Internet, thanks to the
generosity of Batelco, we
hope those amenities can
remain in place for the local
meets.

We don't mind all
Sthe extra effort
made to accommodate our
visitors, but, speaking on
behalf of my local colleagues,
we need to feel just as appre-
ciated when the foreigners
are not around.
In this modern era of tech-
nology, we need to stay on
pace with our counterparts
around the world.
And while Nottage and for-
mer president Alpheus
'Hawk' Finlayson, BAAA's
president Mike Sands and,
Wisdom should be delighted
with their achievements, it
was good to see immediate
past president Desmond Ban-
nister also taking in the activ-
ities.
Although he resigned as

president just before the
championships, Bannister
should be commended for the
role he played in securing the
bid for the championships to
come here while he was in
office.
In his welcoming address
during the official opening
ceremonies last Friday night,
Sands alluded to the fact that
the championships would not

few glitches.
All in all, from the open-

fantastic meet.
And, thank God, the

the three days of competition

for Bannister.
Sands noted that it was
Bannister who had the vision
to bring the championships
here and, once the organis-
ing committee was formed,
the event was taken to anoth-
er level.
And there was a commit-
tee, headed by Livingstone
Bostwick, which served as the


standing performances oif
both the track and field. I
It's just a pity that some ot
the events were affected bfy
the wind factor, which made:
the performances wind-aid-
ed.
I think we could have
attracted more people, but,
remember, the event clashed
with the nation's 32nd Inde-
pendence celebrations.


"Although he resigned as
president just before the
championships, Bannister
should be commended for the
role he played in securing the
bid for the championships to
come here while he was in
office."


Bronze medal rounds


Sfor Bahamas' men



* By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
THE Bahamas men's squad lost their first two games.,
in the junior Caribbean Volleyball Championships"
(CVC), but still advanced through to the bronze medal
rounds.
The defeats left the Bahamas team sitting in the third
spot in their pool, waiting to face the winner of Barba-
dos and Jamaica.
The game between the two teams took place late yes-
terday the bronze medal game is set for Friday.
After losing the tournament opener in three straight
sets to Guadeloupe on Sunday, Bahamas tried to
regroup for their match against Netherlands Antilles, on'
Tuesday night.
Working on the mistakes made in their first game,'
and hoping not to make the errors again, Bahamas'
jumped to an early start in the second.
Taking an early 15-6 set lead, Bahamas tried to run
several plays, which they thought would have helped
them throughout the game.
However, the strong services from the Netherlands-
Antilles team played havoc with the team's offensive
passes, forcing them to call off all plays.
Netherlands Antilles were able to take advantage of
the passing and hitting errors made by the Bahamas
team, moving on to win the game 25-21, 25-22 and 25-23.,
Hector Rolle, team captain said: "I think we have the
best team here, but having the best team on paper won't'
help us win any games.
"We have to play together as a team. Our biggest'
weakness is finishing. In both games we jumped out an'
early lead, but we can't put teams away.


Silver


"This is a young team, there's about two or three
players who've returned from the silver medalling team.
Having such a young team is playing a factor in our'
performances."
By the second set, the offensive passes by team
Bahamas had improved, but their hitting errors had
compounded.
Bahamas had a three point lead over the defending
champions, but with great experience from the Nether-
lands Antilles side, the team quickly closed the gap.
After allowing Netherlands Antilles to take a seven
point lead, Bahamas made a run behind the arm of
Khayyam Minus.
Minus sent down three thunderous spikes to shake
up the defensive.
Exploding through the blocks from back court, Minus
brought the team back within four.
But the Bahamas' nightmare continued when they
stepped to the service line.
Rolle added: "We need to work on our service. A
few of us are leading in the service category, but it will
take a team effort to overthrow our opponents.
"We are having a lot of mental lapses, something we
really need to clean up before the next game.
"Despite it all we are playing well, we could be play-
ing better as a team if we had played in other tourna-
ments." Rolle is leading the best spikers division, with
Frisco McKay and Minus ranked third and fourth
respectively.
In the best blockers division, Minus is ranked third.
Competition for the junior girls will begin on Tuesday
in Trinidad and Tobago.
This is the first time the tournament has separated the

sporting her





in the picture


* By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
TEN new faces will be placed
on the Sports Heroes Wall at the
Nassau International Airport.
Adding to the portraits of
prominent sporting Bahamian
athletes will be Tony Curry, base-
ball; Ed Armbrister, baseball;
Wenty Ford, baseball; Elisha
Obed, boxing; Mychal 'Sweet
Bells' Thompson, basketball;
Rick Fox, basketball; Danny
Smith, track and field; Dominic
Demeritte, track and field; Chris-
tine Amertil, track and field; and
Leevan Sands, track and field.
The names, which were
approved by the government
some weeks ago, were revealed
by Minister of Youth Sports and
Culture Neville Wisdom yester-
day.
Ceremony
Although Wisdom didn't dis-
close when the unveiling cere-
mony will take place, he took
pleasure in announcing the
names, which he referred to as
the nation's sport builders.
He said: "The government has
graciously consented to add to
the Heroes Wall, photographic
likeness of the following ten indi-
viduals, all of whom have made
tremendous contributions to the
development of sports in


the Bahamas.
"I am pleased to advise that
this exercise has been designed
to correctly take the proper steps
toward recognising and demon-
strating appreciation for the effort
and accomplishments of a num-
ber of fantastic Bahamian athlet-
ic achievers of the past, holding
them up for aspiring youths to
emulate."
World
He ensured the public that all
athletes selected for the sporting
wall have achieved on a world
level in their specific discipline.
In baseball, Curry was the sec-
ond athlete to play in the major
leagues. He was inducted into the
National Hall of Fame in Octo-
ber, 2003.
Armbrister and Ford also
played in the major leagues.
The first Bahamian basketball
player drafted into the National
Basketball Association first round
was Thompson, playing with the
Portland Trail Blazers in 1978.
Thompson was the first pick in
that round.
Following in Thompson's foot-
steps was Fox. The two time
NBA championship player was
drafted in 1991, in the first round,
24th pick overall to the Boston
Celtics.
Fox was a part of the Los
Angeles Lakers team that won


two consecutive NBA titles.
In the world of track and field,
the Bahamas produced it's first
world record holder, the late
Danny Smith.
Smith was a resident of Long
Island, competed in the 60m high
hurdles for the Bahamas.
Wisdom added: "Indeed such
an act is intended to influence the
continued development of sports-
men and women throughout the
Commonwealth of the Bahamas,
athletes elite enough to challenge
the best the world could offer, all
in the name of this proud country.
Reinforce
"It should not be lost on mem-
bers of the public that a number
of persons who have been listed
above are deceased. The fact that
they have been placed on the list
is to clearly reinforce the notion
long ago established that the good
that men do will live on long after
they would have passed."
' Athletes like Laverne Eve will
have their photographs set up in
the foray of the new stadium
complex.
According to Wisdom, these
athletes will also receive special
recognition in the complex.

Tonique reflects on 'priceless'




run before her home crowd


* By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
"COMPARED to competing on the
world circuit, running in front of a home
crowd is priceless," said Olympic gold
medallist Tonique Williams-Darling
yesterday.
The feeling Williams-Darling expe-
rienced coming down the home stretch
in her specialty, the 400 metres, on Sun-
day evening at the Colinalmperial Cen-
tral American and Caribbean (CAC)
championships was one, she says, words
cannot describe.
She said: "I was relieved when I came
down the home stretch in front. This
has been a tiring week for me, I see
why Christine (Amertil) didn't want to
compete in the 400m.
"Competing in front of a home crowd
always brings joy to me, this was the
first time in a long time I've competed
at home in a big meet, and it felt great."
However, Williams-Darling's biggest
joy came when the quartet, inclusive
of Williams-Darling, Amertil, Sasha
Rolle and Shaquita Henfield, took to
the track for the 4x400m.
This was the first time the team had
ever competed, running a new Bahami-
an national record, a time of 3:33.14
seconds.
"I wanted nothing more than to run
a relay at home," said Williams-Darling.
"I always knew we were capable of
putting together a team that would be
able to compete at a high level. ,
"We had a team in the past that was
capable of splitting low 50's, but now we
have persons like myself and Christine
who can split at least a 48 or 46 in the
relay.
"The two girls they ran very well,
and I am so proud of them. This is a
good team and, with time, we can bring

ial


bishop debate


* By PETURA BURROWS
Tribune Feature Writer
T hough the Angli-
can Church of
England has
made the decision
I to allow the ordi-
nation of women to the posi-
tion of bishop, church leaders
in the Bahamas say that it will
be years before this is realised
here, if at all.
The vote beginning "the



Arc


process for removing the legal
obstacles to the ordination of
women" came after a debate
at the General Synod in York
on July 11. It was passed
although many traditionalists
threatened that they would
become Roman Catholic in
protest.
Interview
Speaking with Tribune Reli-
gion in a telephone interview


yesterday, Suffragan Bishop of
New Providence, Rev Gilbert
Thompson explained that each
province (specific group of dio-
ceses) in the Anglican commu-
nity is independent of the
Church of England, which
means that dioceses through-
out the world are not obligated
to follow England's decision.
He admits though that the
decision by the Church of Eng-
land will undoubtedly influence
the decision of other provinces.


o(C


In the Anglican community,
the position is that each dio-
c;ese in a province must be pre-
pared to vote on the matter in
its own Diocesan Synod. Then
the diocese meets in a Provin-
cial Synod, where they collec-
tively vote on the matter. It is
only after the provincial ruling
is made that a matter can be
carried out.
Bishop Thompson says that
the stance of the Bahamian
diocese on the ordination of


fl

female bishops is yet unknown.
It will have to be debated in
synod, where the "view of syn-
od" will determine if they can
proceed. And while the dioce-
san synod is set to meet in
October, it is unknown whether
the matter will be discussed,
since the agenda has not been
set.
Agenda
But Bishop Thompson says
that there is "a possibility" that
the consecration of women
bishops will be an important
matter on the agenda.
"But we couldn't just pro-
ceed because England decided
that they would have female
bishops," Bishop Thompson
adds.
The province to which the
Bahamas belongs is made up
of eight dioceses.
According to Bishop
Thompson, the Jamaican dio-
cese (which is a part of the
same province) has already
asked for the other dioceses to
consider the consecration of
female priests.
But if at the next provincial
synod the decision is made to
allow female priests to be con-
secrated as bishops, the Provin-
cial Constitution & Canons of
the Church of the Province of
the West Indies (rules and reg-
ulations that govern that body)
will have to be changed, Bishop
Thompson notes. At this par-
ticular time, it does not allow


* REV Gilbert Thompson,
Suffragan Bishop of New
Providence
for female bishops, he adds.
Supporters of women priests
believe that it is illogical to con-
tinue and bar women from
advan.cing as bishops, since
they are already allowed to be
priests. But opponents argue
that there is no biblical prece-
dent for female bishops. They
use the argument that all of
Jesus' apostles were males.
Ordain
When the General Synod
voted to ordain women priests
in 1992, some traditionalists
believed that it was unfair to

'Devotion in the


service

By CLEMENT JOHNSON
The Guinep Tree Motel Inn and Restau-
rant was overflowing with family mem-
bers and well-wishers of Doris Bethel and
aura Rolle at a Testimonial Banquet to
honour two of the finest matriarchs of the
James Cistern community.
The banquet was held recently under
the theme, "Devotion in the service of the
Lord" (Mark 14:8a She did what she
could).
The women received praise from a wide
range of friendly faces, from the president
ef the Methodist Conference to their own
families. Both Mrs Bethel and Mrs Rolle
were described as "strong women of faith
who often times would go beyond the call
f duty for God, country and family".
; Special greetings came from as far south
as St John's Antigua in the West Indies,
through Rev George McDonald, Mulrian
Connexional President of the MCCA. He
referred to the women as "living testi-
monies who are making sound contribu-
tions to the Church's ongoing witness and
service".
He stressed that the entire Methodist
family across the Caribbean and the Amer-
icas is "associating itself with the gratitude
and respect being expressed during the
course of these events that have been spe-
cially arranged in their honour".
Rev Raymond Neilly, president of the
Conference, referred to Mrs Rolle and
Mrs Bethel as "gentle women of faith".
"They have each had their moments of
'holy ground' and they have moved for-
ward in faith. They are both powerfully
symbolic of many who have given them-
selves to the service of the King. Their
honour does not consist merely in the acco-
Jades showered upon them at this time,
but has expressed in the committed service
df their offspring in various avenues of the
mission of the church of Christ. Addition-
ally, they have distinguished themselves
s noble citizens. We are grateful to God
for the steadfastness of our sisters, who,
-ke the women at the cross, stood with
Jahe Church through the horror of the cru-
Pifixion and rejoiced in the radiance of His
resurrection," said the Rev.
SThe Superintendent Minister, Rev Ken-
mneth Huggins, hailed the women's "stead-


the Lord'

"Both of their lives
are outstanding in
their devotion, which
is evident in their
regular attendance
at worship, prayer
and Bible study, their
giving, and their long
and faithful service
as class leaders,
choir members
and members of the
women's fellowship."
-Rev Kenneth Huggins

fastness and devotion". He praised them as
women who are featured prominently in
the life and ministry of the Church, and
who have made and continue to make a
meaningful contribution to the work of
God.
"Both of their lives are outstanding in
their devotion, which is evident in their
regular attendance at worship, prayer and
Bible study, their giving, and their long
and faithful service as class leaders, choir
members and members of the women's
fellowship," he said.
Alvin Smith, North Eleuthera MP and


Leader of the Opposition in the House of
Assembly, said that the women were "wor-
thy of praise".
"Mrs Laura Rolle and Mrs Doris Bethel
are considered pillars of the James Cis-
tern Methodist Church and matriarchs of
the community of James Cistern," he said,
describing them as exemplary mothers,
having raised their own children and
grandchildren into outstanding citizens,
and serving as mothers to many others.
Mr Smith also congratulated the James
Cistern Methodist Church and its Pastors,
Rev Huggins and Mrs Huggins for their
steadfast, resilient and thoughtful leader-
ship.
Said Ivan Ferguson, deputy administra-
tor for central Eleuthera district: "I am
excited to know that there still exists the
practice, whereby persons known as
'unsung heroes' are given their flowers
while they are alive."
Doris Bethel and Laura Rolle were both
born in the community of James Cistern,
Eleuthera to the late Shadrach and Albe-
na Bethel. These two national heroes,
between the two of them, have 15 chil-
dren. They both reside in James Cistern
and are active members in the Methodist
Church and their communities.
The guests who filled the banquet hall
illustrated the immense love and respect
felt for the women.
The special banquet was held under the
patronage of Rev Dr Raymond R Neilly,
president of the Conference of MCCA
and Mrs Roselin LaRocque-Neilly. The
event was sponsored jointly by
Bahamas/Turks and Caicos Island Con-
ference, The Methodist Church in the
Caribbean and the Americas and the
James Cistern Methodist Church.

hold out on women bishops.
ut some critics believe that
omen bishops could threaten
he Church's already fragile
nity. The strength of the
nglican Communion has
already been tested by the
.debate over gay blessings and
ordinations.
Of the 38 Anglican
provinces, three have women
bishops. Eleven, including Scot-
iand, Ireland and Sudan, have
l6ted for women bishops but
iave yet to appoint any. The
.osition of the Church of Eng-
ifand as the "mother" church of
he communion means that any
decisionn in England on a con-
Itroversial issue, such as women
,priests, may have a greater
impact.
r- According to Bishop
IThompson, the ordination of
;women priests could be con-
sidered the major hurdle. And
that, he adds, has already been
accepted. "Now, once you cross
the barrier whereby you allow
women to become priests,
that's the major barrier. Once
you allow women to become
priests, then 'almost the next
step is to allow them to become
"bishops...
Clergy
"I am not saying that
because they become priests it
[is axiomatic that the clergy will
;vote for them becoming bish-
ops, but am saying that the
'biggest hurdle has been
crossed."
But whether subsequent hur-
dles will be crossed in refer-
ence to female bishops remains
to be seen, the Bishop notes.
"This matter is something
already on the table for discus-
Psion. It was introduced at the
Last provincial sitting in Belize
'in November 2004. And the
decision of provinces has noth-
Rting to do with what England
Does. But no doubt, England's
decision will have some influ-
ence. Now, how much (influ-
ence)? I don't know."
The Bahamas diocesan syn-
od, which is made up of all the
Anglican clergy and two rep-
resentatives from each parish
throughout the diocese of the
Bahamas and the Turks and
Caicos Islands, meets in Octo-
B ber of each year.
SBut the province, which
iF'


meets every three years, will
not meet again until 2007,
which means that the Anglican
community in the Bahamas will
not be able to act officially on
the matter until then.
Diocese
Rev Thompson explains:
"Let's says for the sake of argu-
ment, the diocese in the
Bahamas decides in (October)
2005 that they agreed with
women bishops, the diocese of
the Bahamas could not pro-
ceed with the matter until it
was brought back to provincial
synod in 2007. The diocese can-
not say we agree with it so we
will proceed. The diocese can
agree with it, but when we all


,met in 2007 the matter willbe
discussed. Then the ruling in
terms of the majority, and pros
and cons of having female bish-
ops, will be made.
"So you can safely say that
even though England is debat-
ing the matter, it is still about
two or more years in advance
of us because we cannot decide
as an individual diocese to pro-
ceed. We have to proceed as a
province."
Decision
However, despite the deci-
sion made in York on July 11,
no woman is likely to be
ordained before Easter 2010,
according to international news
reports.

A BREAKFAST SERIALS STORY


BY JONATHAN LONDON


* ILLUSTRATED BY MAILE PICKETT


The TIbune


THE STORY SO FAR:
At night, while camping along the
Green River in Desolation Canyon,
Aaron's dad is telling scary stories
when Aaron is suddenly grabbed and
pulled toward the water.

CHAPTER EIGHT
What Can You Do With A
Wild One?


T he hand let go of my ankle
and I shot to the surface
screaming, "CASSIDY!" Who else
could it be? And there he was, soak-
ing wet like me, flopping around in
the shallows, clutching his belly with
laughter.
Everybody was laughing, except me-
and my dad. I must have been a fun-
ny sight, but I was too shook up to
laugh, and too embarrassed.
Dad said, "Cassidy, you're too much
for me." And he got up and headed
for our tent.
Cassidy said, "Lighten up,
dude."
"Cassidy," Willie said. A warning, I
guess, but Willie still had half a grin on
his face.


ometimes he acts more like a
big brother to Cassidy than a
father. But like Dad said, Cassidy's a
handful, and Willie's a single parent.
What can you do with a wild one like
Cassidy?
Cassidy climbed out of the river and
squatted next to the fire.
Nobody said anything.
We just sat and listened to the river
babbling in its dark bed.


n the morning I woke to a loud
clang. I rubbed my eyes and
looked around. Dad was gone. I
squinted out into the early sun as it
burst through a V-notch in the lip of
the canyon. A lizard scurried beneath
a rock. Otherwise, nothing seemed
to move in the white glare.
Then I heard voices. Loud voices. I
wrestled into my big-pocketed cargo
shorts and crawled out of the tent,
then walked tender-footed toward the
kitchen area.
Cassidy held a long-handled black
skillet in his hand. The muscles in his
arm bulged and twisted like ropes.
My dad stood facing him, one foot on
a log.
"You've got an attitude," Dad said.
"Get out of my face!"
"Let's talk this out!"
"Back off!" Cassidy banged the pan
against the metal fold-leg table.


"You and your practical jokes," Dad
said. "Or are they jokes? You throw
rocks off cliffs, almost get Lisa bit by a
snake, grab Aaron last night and-"
"Hey hey hey hey!" barked Willie,
coming up sleepy-eyed. Sounds like a
coupla roosters had a bad night. Cas-
sidy? How many times I have to tell
you to zip it?"
Roger shuffled over, scratching his
grizzled face. "Where's the coffee?
Hot coffee to cool down them river jit-
ters," he said,
Everybody was up now, except for
Lisa.
"Me and Cassidy are having a little
chat about-"
"Bull!" shouted Cassidy. "This
turkey's been on my case since we hit
the river!" He clanged the pan one
more time, then let it drop.
"Cassidy!" Willie boomed.
Then I saw Lisa. She was half-hid-
ing behind a cottonwood tree. In the
leaf shadows she looked like a tree
nymph from a fairy tale. I nodded,


but she didn't seem to notice. She
just brushed the black hair from her
eyes and stared at Cassidy.
"Let's boil some coffee-" Roger
started to say, but Cassidy cut him off
with a barrage of swear words.
"Cool it!" Willie snapped.
"This could be a fun trip-" Dad
started to say.
"Yeah," Cassidy interrupted, "if you
weren't here to ruin all the fun!"
"Dropping rocks on people's heads
is your idea of fun?"
"No, rowing in slow mo' and acting
like a moron. Duhhh!"
"Kids! Kids!" Roger said. He tried
to laugh, but there was nothing to
laugh about.
"This is not a joke!" Dad said.
"You're the joke! Ha-ha!" Cassidy
pointed at Dad. "And you're a joker
with an attitude! Macho man. All
bravado and he-man antics, like a bad-
boy copy of a fake TV wrestler."
"Stop now! Both of you!" Willie
said. "You're both out of line!" ..
Veins popped out in Cassidy's neck
and I thought he was going to explode.


D ad took one step back and
Willie came around the
table toward them.
Too late. All in one swift move-
ment, Cassidy faked then ducked and
picked up one end of the log Dad was
half-standing on-up-ending him into
the sand. Dad rolled and cursed. "Are
you crazy?" he yelped.
Cassidy couldn't speak. Words
seemed to press at his clenched lips to
get out, and his face twisted with a
dark, crazy anger. His eyes bulged
into hard bullets, and he knelt and
wrestled the big old log up till it tot-
tered on his shoulders, then he stood
and whirled around above Dad,
yelling, "You moron!" i

'Are we going to


accept teaching of


Jesus in its entirety,


or are we going to


choose sections that


are most agreeable


to us?'


N By CLEMENT
JOHNSON
AS I sat in a local restau-
rant Tuesday morning I
overhead some of the
patrons discussing an arti-
cle in that day's Tribune
reporting Bishop Neil Ellis'
warning against illegal
immigration. The two men
and three women were dis-
appointed about certain
parts of the bishop's ser-
mon.
One woman who said
she was a Bahamian, but
married to a Haitian,
described some of the bish-
op's remarks as racist, cer-
tainly not Christian.

Working
"I have four children,
-who are now grown, they
are all working and making
a contribution to this coun-
try. They speak English
and Creole, but because of
their last name they are
often made the brunt of
cruel jokes and prejudice.
It's not fair, to them and
the thousands of
Haitian/Bahamians who
live peacefully in this coun-
try," she said as tears filled
her eyes.
"My brother's son is
married to a
Haitian/Bahamian and
they have two beautiful
kids, they speak English
and Creole. I wish my kids
spoke both; I believe it is
an asset to speak more
than one language these
days," she said.
"I have a problem where
the bishop said: 'That's
why CSME was not good
for us. We can't handle
freedom of people moving
up and down to work in
the Bahamas from other
Caribbean countries. We
can't handle it. We are
overloaded now.'
"My concern with that is:
Has the Bahamas govern-
ment ruled out the possi-
bility of us ever joining
CSME?" said a gentleman
in the group of morning
diners. "If we choose not
to join CSME, which coun-
try or block of countries
are we going to be associat-
ed with? From what I
understand all countries in
the region have signed on
to the treaty with the
exception of the Bahamas,
they all seem to have some
reservations about certain
aspects of it, but they real-
ize on their own they will
not be able to compete on
the global market," the
man said. "I also under-
stand that many of the peo-
ple in the eastern and
southern Caribbean have
no interest in coming to the
Bahamas to work. They
are quite comfortable in
their own countries making
good money. Plus the
treaty would only allow
qualified and skilled per-
sons to be able to move
from country to country
and only if they are need-
ed. So the mass hysteria
that is being played out in
the media is just that," he
said.
The gentleman sitting
with him said what both-


ered him the most was the
hypocrisy in which Bishop
Ellis rallied the congrega-
tion in preaching his preju-
dicial sermon about the
language issue.
"I feel it's the responsi-
bility of any educational
institution to train its
teachers to meet the chal-
lenges of all students, that's
why we train teachers to
learn sign language or we
equip others to deal with
students with disabilities
like autism. When you
travel to Miami in the air-
port you hear English,
Spanish and Creole
announcements. So what if
at an independence cele-
bration parts of it are in
Creole? It would only
show how far we have
matured as a nation. The
Bahamas is prosperous
now because of the many
people who have con-
tributed toward its devel-
opment the Haitian, the
Americans, Jamaicans,
Trinidadians, Dominicans,
British and many more
nationals whose shoulders
we now stand on.
"Thank God for the for-
eigners whose children are
now MPs, doctors, lawyers,
nurses, and school teach-
ers," he said. "And for the
bishop to imply that if you
were born here and your
parents were not that you
have no rights is wrong,
also to make it seem as if
only children of immi-
grants get in trouble is
despicable. But the contra-
diction comes when the
bishop speaks about the
Bahamas being a Christian
nation," he said. "How can
we call ourselves Christian
when the bishop referred
to Haitians as 'these peo-
ple' and their practice of
witchcraft. He also implied
that foreigners have no
rights and are not to speak
up for their rights. He
called them biggety," said
the other gentleman.

Wonder
Listening to all of this I
began to wonder if we
were on the right path as a
country, and what mes-
sages we were sending out
to our children. If the
church cannot protect the
rights of all, it seems that
something is wrong. It was
always the church that pro-
tected women, children
and foreigners. So if this is
the mandate of Jesus, it
seems clear that we are
straying away from it.
The Haitian child is enti-
tled, like everyone else, to
an education. If the only
language that he speaks is
Creole then it's the respon-
sibility of the system to
communicate to him in a
manner that he can under-
stand. In the Beatitudes
Jesus demanded that his
followers treat all people
with respect and dignity.
The question that we as
a people have to ask our-
selves: Are we going to
accept the teaching of
Jesus in its entirety, or are
we going to choose the sec-
tions that are most, agree-
able to us.
