Environmental

Health and BEST

set to investigate


By ADRIAN GIBSON
AN inter-departmental inves-
tigation has been launched into
claims of a disproportionate
number of cancer cases in
Andros and Eleuthera.
Director of the Department
of Environmental Health Ron
Pinder said that with Keod
'Smith, Amba'ssador. for the'
Environment and Bahamas
Environment Science and Tech-
nology Commission chairman,
he intends to launch a full inves-
tigation to verify if these claims
are true and if so try to discover
the causes.
Recently residents of
Eleuthera and Andros have
speculated that due to the close
proximity of US naval bases to
pertain communities there has
been increases in the level of
cancer cases.
According to Mr Pinder, the
BEST Commission, Depart-
ment of Environmental Health,
Department of Public Health,
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
have joined together to investi-
gate these concerns and seek to
investigate the properties.by
making, on site visits.
He said they intend to form
an investigative committee and
to collaborate with the mem-
bers of parliament for these
areas.
"We are going to interview
persons to substantiate their
claims, to know whether they
have cancer, how long they
have had it, whether they
-worked on the properties
.and/or lived near them," Mr
'Pinder said.
S On Wednesday, The Tribune


received a call from Eleuthera
lawyer, Lloyd Johnson, in
response to a Tribune article
that morning about residents'
concerns about the AUTEC
base on Andros.
He said that for more than
10 years he has raised questions
about the high incidence of can-
cer deaths in James Cistern and
Palmetto Point. He said that
many workers from the closed
US naval facility at Governor's
Harbour were recruited years-
ago from these areas and had
subsequently contracted cancer.
According to Mr Johnson, he
has been calling on the Ministry
of Health to conduct research
into the "numbers of young
people, in their 30s and 40s,
dying from cancer in these
areas."
It is believed by the residents
of these Eleutheran communi-
ties that in addition to working
on the site, contaminating
debris has been left behind on
the old naval base.
Mr Johnson claimed that two
years ago, a private study con-
ducted at the former naval site
discovered cancerous agents
present.
Corroborating Mr Johnson's
concerns, North Eleuthera MP
Alvin Smith has also suggested
that there has been a "signifi-
cant number of cancer related
deaths in Eleuthera since the
1980s."

nology Commission's reported
inquiry into the US Navy's
operations in Andros, the North

DESPITE claims to the con-
trary, the Bahamas' lack of
machine-readable passports will
not bar Bahamians from travel-
ling to London.
In an interview with The Tri-
bune yesterday morning, For-
eign Affairs Permanent Secre-
tary Dr Patricia Rodgers said, "I
verified with the US Embassy,
and as far as they are aware,
there is no such stipulation for,
Bahamians travelling abroad on
US airlines, to have machine-
readable passports in the wake
of explosions in London."'
A recent article in The
Bahama Journal reported that
according to a local travel agent,
"following terror attacks on
London two weeks ago trav-
ellers without machine-readable
passports are not'allowed to
travel within that region".
However, Dr Rodgers said


she was informed by the
Bahamas High Commission in
London, in receipt of a Foreign
and Commonwealth office cir-
cular received two days ago,
that passengers arriving only at
Heathrow Terminal One may
be required to be fingerprinted
or undergo an iris scan.
However, Dr Rodgers
stressed that this process is not
mandatory.
The Tribune also spoke with
Adrian Barton, British Airways'
district manager for the
Bahamas, who said his office
has received no notification
from the British government of
any changes to the entrance
requirements for Bahamians to
the United Kingdom.
Dr Rodgers said that
Bahamian passports are cur-
rently not machine-readable.
However, the ministry has gone
to tender to produce this type of

Grand Bahama






receives minor




brush on its





eastern end


BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Only the eastern tip of Grand
Bahama experienced thunderstorms and rain-
fall as tropical storm Franklin passed near Aba-
co on Friday morning.
Later in the afternoon, there were also some
short burst of rainfall in Freeport and the West
End area.
Weather conditions at Abaco began deteri-
orating at 8am yesterday, as the centre of storm.


'Most of the rainfall

and thunderstorms
are east of the centre.

When we looked at

the satellite we saw

the western end of

the cloudiness extend

to about the centre

part of Grand

Bahama, putting High
Rock and East End in
the bands.'

moved north near Marsh Harbour.
In East Grand Bahama, residents experi-
enced overcast and rainy conditions.
"It is overcast here and it has been raining all


morning," reported an employee at the admin-
istrator's office in East Grand Bahama.
Grand Bahama meteorologist Lee Marvin
Johnson reported that around .Said Fraki".W'
had slowed down from 12 to nine mph,..
He said tropical storm force windi4extnided,
40 miles our from the storm centre.
"Most of the rainfall and thunderstorms are :
east of the centre. When we looked at the satel-
lite we saw the western end of the cloudiness
extend to about the centre part of Grand
Bahama, putting High Rock and East End in
the bands of cloudiness," he said.
The system, which.has maximum sustained
winds of 45mph hour, is moving toward the
northwest. The official track predicts that the.
storm will be about 200 miles north of Abaco tat,
2am Saturday.
It is thought that Franklin will then curve
northeastwards toward Bermuda, Mr Johnson
said.
Asked if the storm could curve away from the
Bahamas and then turn back, as Hurricane
Jeanne did last September, he said: "I am very
much aware that there are models that have the
storm curving and looping and going over South
Florida and Grand Bahama. And that is the
case with some of these forecast models.
"And when you see these storms slow down
like this one has, anything is liable to happen.'
And that's what happened with Jeanne, which
basically went out in the ocean and stopped.'
And then all of a sudden made a curve and
came back around, so that is very, very possible.
"But, we lean more towards the official track,
which of course does warn us that we have to
continue to monitor the storm for any deviation
from the track," he said. .
Although the storm may possibly intensify,
Mr Johnson noted that none of the models.
forecasts Franklin to become a hurricane ..
"There are upper level troughs moving in.
from the US that could possibly inhibit the
strength of the storm over the next 34 hours,"
he said.

Officer's murder



reflects violence



in wider society


By KARAN MINNIS
THE murder of a young,
aspiring police officer earlier
:this month was a reflection of
the violence that exists in
Bahamian society, deputy com-
missioner. of police John Rolle
said.
Mr Rolle was speaking at the
Smilitary-style funeral held yes-
terday for Henry Malcolm Cur-
ry III.
.: ?,? ..... ... -t


his parents Henry II and Lor-
raine Curry, his daughter
Aaliyah, four brothers, one sis-
ter, and three adopted broth-
ers.
The funeral, held at St Barn-
abas Anglican Church on Wulff
and Baillou Hill Road at 10 am,
was officiated by Canon Basil
Tynes.
Deputy Prime Minister Cyn-
thia Pratt, a long time friend of
the family, said that people


only 2,000 police officers.
"This is our country. If we
cofitinue to turn our heads, who
knows who it will be tomor-
row," said Mrs Pratt.
Two days after Mr Curry's
death, chief superintendent of
police Hulan Hanna told The
Tribune that "shortly after the
incident, one of the suspects
turned himself in to the police,
and further investigations then
led to the arrest of others.

TROPICAL Storm
Franklin is expected to con-
tinue on a northerly trajectory
as it slowly moves out of the
Bahamas.
According to local meteo-
rologists, as of 2pm yesterday,
the storm was 70 miles north-
east of Marsh Habour, Aba-
co moving to the north at a
speed 9 miles per hour.
Meteorologist Wayne Neely
said the storm is expected to


strengthen gradually, but the
Bahamas should be clear of
danger by Saturday night.
A tropical storm warning
was in effect yesterday for the
islands of Abaco, Eleuthera
and Grand Bahama.
The storm developed from a
tropical depression as it moved
over Bahamian waters Thurs-
day night.
Shortly before noon yester-
day, tropical storm Franklin
was centered 30 miles north
east of Abaco and 115 miles


east of Freeport.
At that time it was heading
slowly towards the northwest
with maximum winds of 50
miles per hour.
The Tribune was able to.
contact local island adminis-'
trator Revis Rolle in. Marsh
Habour just before noon yIi-
terday.
Mr Rolle repoTted that
winds were up to anIestianied
18 knots and that part of the-
island was receiving up to
three inches of rain.

Bahamas


set to


host


top


crime,


drug


and


anti-terror summit


By DANIELLE STUBBS
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas has been chosen as this year's
host for the Crime, Violence, Illegal Drugs and
Anti-Terrorism International Summit.
"But more significantly," law enforcement
and Immigration officials are "delighted that
the Her Majesty's Prison Correctional Train-
ing Institute will be the primary venue for dis-
cussions."
The four-day summit, sponsored by the Crim-
inal Justice Department of Chicago State Uni-
versity, is scheduled for 9am to 5pm between


Monday, October 24 and Friday, October 28.
The summit will include plenary sessions, pan-
el discussions, workshops and "activities address-
ing the burning issues of crime."
Speakers for the event will be representatives
from the United States, Central America, Lon-
don, Canada, Belize, and a myriad of Caribbean
countries.
Chairman for the International Committee
on Crime and Violence George Bodie said
organisers of the summit are hoping that this
initiative will bring together criminal justice,
court and juvenile professionals, law enforce-
ment and security agencies, religious leaders,


educators and the community at large.
"We hope to talk about the problems, net-
work on crime prevention, formulate a policy
and recommend actions to eliminate or min-
imise crime in our communities," said Mr Bod-
ie. Participants in the summit will also have the
opportunity to reflect on national security issues
and hear addresses on security needs and post
September 11 challenges.
As an incentive for attending the summit
meetings, law enforcement has arranged for par-
ticipants to receive certificates of attendance
and participation that can count as credit toward
a continuing education course at Chicago State


University. The entire Bahamas is being urged to
attend the summit meetings, particularly those
who have been victims of crime.
Summit organisers say the presence of the
Bahamian public is critical, because law enforce-
ment "is depending on your suggestions and
ideas about reducing crime, improving family
relations, improving our agencies, neighbour-
hoods and communities."
The cost to attend the summit is $125, which
includes lunches and material.
Interested persons are asked to contact the
International Summit on Crime, Violence, Ille-
gal Drugs and Anti-Terrorism at: 364-9889.


Workmen begin work on the Casa Bahama


Freeport high


rise gets $3.5m


refurbishment


BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Grand
Bahama businessman Mario
Donato disclosed that Casa
Bahama is undergoing a $3.5
million complete refurbishment.
Major structural works are
being carried out on the high-
rise apartment building by
Qualfast Construction, which
started making repairs a few
weeks ago.
"Practically everything will
be completely new in all 63
units," said Mr Donato, noting
that unit rentals at the 18-storey


building on the Mall would be
more "high-end" than previ-
ously.
"We were renting at $650 and
$700 per month and the place
became destroyed and run
down because tenants were not
paying," he said.
Mr Donato said he may con-
sider offering units for sale.
Following a fire last March
tenants were forced to vacate
their units when power and
water utilities to the property
were disconnected. Shortly
afterwards, the building's cer-
tificate of occupancy was
revoked.


A RULING in the case of
expelled taxi Cab Union offi-
cers Mark Sawyer and Rodney
Moncur may come when the
case resumes on Tuesday.
After months of legal wran-
gling, the two officers will have
to wait and see if they will be
allowed to rejoin BTU.
If Supreme Court Justice
Hartman Longley rules in their
favour, the pair plan to run in
the BTU annual elections on
August 4.
The proceedings are in closed
chambers with BTU president
Leon Griffin represented by
Trade Union Congress Presi-
dent Obie Ferguson. Mr Mon-
cur and Mr Sawyer are repre-
senting themselves.
Mr Moncur was expelled
from the union by the execu-


tive board.
He is asking the court for a
stay of the next election so that
he can try and regain entry into
the union and subsequently run
foi office.
Mr Sawyer was an executive
board member when he was dis-
charged from the union after
being voted out in an election
on January 17 this year.
Embattled members includ-
ed Mr Moncur and Sawyer,
along with former vice presi-
dent Cheryl Bethel and execu-
tive member Sigmund Bethel.
The four were voted out in
an election that they maintain
was against the union's consti-
tution.
The Department of Labour
certified the election results on
January 19.


By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas, with the help
of the US State Department,
has increased efforts to secure
"very vulnerable" ports in the
event of terrorist attacks.
In a special US sponsored
'underwater explosive incident
couniter-measures' course,
Bahamian police officers, alofig
with law enforcement person-
nel from other Caribbean coun-
tries, were instructed on how to
detect, identify and dispose of
threats on cruise and cargo ships
and in port areas.
The two-week training pro-
gramme, which included diving
exercises off of Defence Force
vessels and simulations on
cruise ships, culminated yester-
day afternoon in a graduation
ceremony at the police training
college.
Speaking at the graduation,
Assistant Superintendent Jef-
frey Deleveaux, director of fire
services, spoke to the relevance
of the training course.
"It seems that the course was
particularly designed for today.
Looking at what happened in
England just a few days ago,
and presently what is going on
in England..'. We here in the
Bahamas, especially looking at
our ports, we are very, very vul-
nerable to a terrorist attack on a
cruise ship or a container port in
Grand Bahama," he said.
Also addressing the course
graduates yesterday, US
Ambassador John Rood said
that the law enforcement offi-
cers will be those "at the front
lines of detecting, identifying
and disposing of threats, threats
to the sea ports, threats to the
ships."
"The Caribbean consists of
island nations and island nations
rely so heavily on their ports,
for the cruise industry, for
tourism (and) water ways are
especially vulnerable," he said.
This vulnerability, said the


ambassador, is the reason why
the US government has made
it a priority to fund such training
courses.
"What makes it so important
to the US, is that many people
in the Caribbean are American
tourists. We have an interest
that goes beyond shared values,
we have an interest of protect-
ing our American citizens as
well as goods destined for our
country," he said.
Ambassador Rood said that
water ways are more vulnera-
ble than land mass, because
water provides easy access.
"It easier to get into the
water, its easier to hide things
under ships, there is a lot of car-
go that is moved through ships,"
he said.
He further explained that
although authorities spend a lot
of time securing airports and
airlines, the sheer magnitude of
the shipping network makes the
task of protecting all access
points very challenging.
"Think about the number of
passengers that disembark in
Nassau everyday off of cruise
ships, its huge. And the amount


of food and goods that go into
those ships to service all those
people, its just a big, big task,"
he added.
Seventeen law enforcement
officers; from the Bahamas,
Barbados, the Dominican
Republic, Jamaica, and
Trinidad and Tobago, yester-
day received their graduation
certificates from the instructors
of the US' Anti-Terrorism


Assistance Programme (ATA).
Ambassador Rood said he
feels that the training course
has contributed to an expansion
of the US/Bahamian relation-
ship, "to one between the Unit-
ed States and many of the other
Caribbean countries."
"One of the goals that we
have at the State Department
is to encourage more regional
co-operation. These training
seminars encourage co-opera-
tion, encourage dialog and build
relationships.
"It builds up the capacity, not
only of the Bahamas, but also
other Caribbean countries, in
order for them to defend a
cruise ship, a cargo ship or a
port. To protect from those who
are going to use these facilities
to inflict harm upon us, and us
may mean Bahamians, may
mean the economy of the
Bahamas, may mean Americans
that are travelling through the
Bahamas," he said.

Mediocrity at





Bahamasair





must cease


EDITOR, The Tribune
BAHAMASAIR is a mill-
stone around the. necks of
Bahamian taxpayers. It is now
my unequivocal position that
the airline should be privatized,
post haste, and not with the
government retaining 51 per
cent of the shares. Let all of it
go with certain conditions in
place that will protect Bahami-
an travellers, especially those
living in the far-flung islands of
our archipelago.
I have decided in recent
months not to fly, (the few
times that I do) Bahamasair; I
would like too, but I cannot rea-
son with myself why I should
pay Bahamasair over $200 for a
round trip ride from Freeport
to Nassau and return, when
having confirmed reservations,
doesn't necessarily mean that I
would get on the flight. If one of
the airline's employees wants
to get one of their family mem-
bers or friends on that particular.
flight, they will simply bump
you with no regard for your
business appointments.
Please indulge me while I tell
you a nightmare story. Several
months ago I arranged a trip to
Long Island (Stella Maris) for a
party of eight persons. We had
to fly Freeport Nassau Stella
Maris Deadman's Cay Nas-
sau Freeport. My travel agent
required us to pay for our tick-
ets (with confirmed reserva-
tions) two months prior to trav-
elling, which we did. On the day
we were scheduled to leave, we
arrived at the ticket counter in
Freeport and we i tbid that
four.of us did not have any
-reservations at all. I wasn't so
shocked because you come to


expect these kinds of things
when you travel Banana-Air-
ways. Anyway, you know
"Loud Mouth" me, would have
none of their nonsense, and so,
the supervisor very quickly
instructed the counter lady to
check us all in for the flight.-
We arrived in Nassau and
checked in for Stella Maris -
no problems. When we left Stel-
la Maris, Long Island, we had
no problems, but when we
attempted to check in for the
Nassau-Freeport flight which
we were scheduled for, they told
us that four of us had no reser-
vations and the flight was over-
booked and that there was
nothing they could do. They
cared very little about our story
about having confirmed reser-
vations, etc., etc. I will stop the
story here because it is too long
a one to tell. I will just tell you
what I found out. After my
investigation, I concluded that
someone in reservations proba-
bly bumped four of us so that
four of their friends or family
members could travel. I have
since decided to fly with
Bahamasair only if I simply can-
not help doing so. I don't see
why I should pay my money
and time to be mistreated,
insulted and talked down to as if
I were a child. Besides, notwith-
standing your confirmed book-
ings, you just never know if you
will ever get on the plane. I'll fly
WesteriAir as long'as they are.
going in my direction.
Contrary to what the airline


union says, the government
should move, post haste, to pri-
vatize this "excuse for an air-
line operation". I suspect that
the union's position is predicat-
ed on the fact that a privatized
Bahamasair means fewer
employees; less membership
dues and no more slackness.
I reported the above incident
to Mr. Paul Major, who had an
investigation carried out. He
informed me afterwards that
the record showed that my
brother's, his wife's and two
children's confirmed reserva-
tions were cancelled my
question to him was who
cancelled them? We did not and
my travel agent did not so
who did? That was the million-
dollar question.
It is sad, but these kinds of
incidents happen everyday and
no one is called into account -
passengers just walk away;
accept what happens to them
and chalk it up to another bad
experience on Banana Airways.
If I were Paul Major, and as
him, if I really wanted to solve
this dastardly practice, I would
give each employee a secret
computer code so that. if they
wish to access a passenger's
reservations or make any
changes to it, the code will have
to be put in and the employee
doing so would be identified in
any future investigations, and
disciplined.
Bahamians should rise up and
demand an end to this medioc-
rity, not only at Bahamasair but
all other government entities,
including the cabinet.

'Tommy' paves



the way for new



political leaders


EDITOR, The Tribune.
WOULD you allow me to
brand as irrelevant whether I
am of the opinion that "Tom-
my" Turnquest, leader of The
Free National Movement, is
capable of leading this country


or not? What is relevant, how-
ever, is that "Tommy" repre-
sents a new generation of polit-
ical leader in The Bahamas. I
happen to believe that this is
one of the prevalent reasons
why the FNM was rejected by
the electorate in our most
recent general election.
"Tommy" was (and still is)
viewed as still a child by a cer-
tain constituency of people scat-
tered all over this country. And
I am not sure if there is any-
thing that he would be able to
do about such a perception,
except wait on the passage of
time.
But what the populace would
be able to do now is to engage
themselves in an introspective
analysis of their own lives. For
example Are you an adult,
perhaps with your own children,
your own home, living your own
independent life, and your par-
ents and others of their genera-
tion still perceive you to be a
child? If this is true, then I con-
tend that it would be highly


unlikely that your parent's gen-
eration would sanction pro-
moting "Tommy" Turnquest to
leader of the country. What
might exacerbate the problem
would be if those of "Tommy's"
generation perceive themselves
as their parents perceive them.
To me, "Tommy" is the new
generation's pioneer in The
Bahamas. And I admire the fact
that in the face of incessant crit-
icism of his leadership capabili-
ties, he is moving forward with-
out looking back. Even if he
does not reach the ultimate goal
of becoming Prime Minister of
The Bahamas, at least he would
have paved the way for others
to follow in his footsteps. The
New Generation will have its
representative in the top posi-
tion in this country within the
years to come.

THE driver of a small truck
narrowly missed serious injury
yesterday, after the vehicle
burst into flames on the inter-
section of Cambridge and Hos-
pital Lanes.
The fire broke out just after
2.30pm on Friday. Fire officers
fought to contain the blaze for
more than an hour before they
realised that the presence of two
tanks of freon gas on the back
of the truck was counter-acting
their efforts.
The driver of the vehicle had
already left the scene when The
Tribune arrived.
However, firefighters claimed
he was an employee of the

Eyewitnesses in the area
claim the driver was experienc-

he stalled below an apartment
complex on Hospital Lane to

Shortly after he lifted the

denying claims that it is respon-
sible for delays to the Harrold
Road project.
In a press release yesterday,
the company responded to a
July 20 Tribune article, in which
a small group of workmen
claimed the project had been at
a "standstill" for more than two
weeks because .BTC failed to
address issues relating to its
underground wiring.


'BTC is

surprised to

have been

blamed.'

Although Works and Utili-
ties Minister Bradley Roberts
said he has "no knowledge" of a
hold-up to the project, the men
claimed that two BTC wire box-
es had to be located before one
end of the highway could be
raised to meet the other.
This, they said, was the
responsibility of BTC. However
BTC said it is not even involved
in the road project.
"BTC has no direct involve-
ment in the Harrold Road pro-
ject and is surprised to have
been blamed for any hold up
that has occurred," said con-
struction and operations vice
president Edward Miller.
He said BTC conducted its
own investigations and discov-
ered that the wire boxes
referred to by the workmen are
in fact BTC cable boxes.
However, Mr Miller said, the
managers of the Harrold Road
project have contracted another
company to carry out the work
in relation to that aspect of the
project, and it is in no way the
responsibility of BTC.

WHY YOU VEX?

WHY YOU VEX?


"You know what makes me vex, I don't see
how foreign investors can come in, set up shop
and then in less than two years they wan' pack
up, go home and say they broke. Often when
they come in, they promote wonderful jobs
and so you have dozens if not hundreds of
people who get jobs or leave their jobs to work
there and then the company says they don't
have no more money, they have to leave. And
therefore the people are all displaced. But my
thing is, why is government allowing these
people to come in if they do not have a con-
crete business plan that should last at
least five years to guarantee jobs
for the people?"
Vex, Vex, Vex.


"I vex at Atlantis. No
one disputes the level of
employment and the
good they have done for
the country. But I think
with their proposed 22-
story condominium
project, they are ruin-
ing the island flavor
of the Bahamas. I
mean when people
come on an island
vacation, they want to
experience something
different, not exactly the
same big buildings, they
left in the big city. I hope
that Atlantis reconsiders
its plans and designs and
creates something that will
accentuate our beautiful
country not compete with
it."
M Albury,
Yamacraw.


"I was very annoyed when I was in the hair-
dresser the other day and the stylist was cussing
like a sailor and talking all her business regard-
ing men, sex etc. It was so distasteful, especially
as at the time, she was putting candy curls in a
little girl's hair. I was so mad, the mother kept
saying please watch your language. It was most
inappropriate and just shows you how tactless
some people are.
I left a few minutes after the mother and
daughter and the mother was fuming. We both
said we will never ever, go back there. So that
is three clients she has lost simply because of
her unlady-like behavior."
A Watkins,
Tropical Gardens.


"You know what makes me so vex, I wan'
strangle someone, when people ask me where
I get stuff from. and show much. it cost. The
other day I was at a party and this ld nosy.
woman wa'like 'ohh you look cute, well how
much you pay for that?' I mean if it was some-
one who close to me, I wouldn't mind, but not
someone I hardly know. Then what make me
further mad, she say to our other friend, 'chile
you could see her money only go for clothes,
her husband dis pay the bills.' That is none of
her business, excuse me for wanting to look
nice."
Let me be cute in peace!
"I was riding down Harrold .road and the
ambulance couldn't pass, and I was vex for
the sick people in the ambu-
lance. On the new Harrold
road, where we supposed to
r pull over an let the ambu-
lance pass?"
Agatha D.

"I am super vex
about Bahamians and
our Immigration
Department placing so
much emphasis on the
illegal Haitian crisis in
the country but every-
one seems to be ignor-
ing the slippery-foot
Jamaicans coming in
and trying to control
things. These people are
extremely discreet when
they come in to the
country, and claim they
are hard working Chris-
tian people. I have a
house keeper right now
who obviously don't have
enough work to do because
when I look down on the
ground the other day, I sure
it was my new Revlon polish
on her toenail, and I never gave
her permission to use it. This is a prime exam-
ple of how you give these Jamaicans an inch,
and they take a mile."

ference to enhance their skills
in leadership and customer ser-
vice.,
For union president Pat Bain,
education and training is vital
for his members, so that a "vac-
uum in the leadership" of the
organisation does not develop.
Addressing the. press yester-
day, Mr Bain said he wants the
union to be functioning at such
a high level that he will be able
Sgive the reigns over to any num-
,er of skilled and dedicated
shop stewards when the time
comes.
Nicole Martin, organiser of
the three-day annual confer-
ence, now in it's fifth year, said
this year's conference will
advance under the theme:
"Leaders committed to excel-
lence in service".
Minister of Tourism Obie
Wilchcombe will deliver the
opening address when the con-
ference opens next week.
Other presenters will include
Minister of Labour and Immi-
gration Vincent Peet; Angela
Cleare of the Ministry of
Tourism; Debbie Bartlett of the
CEO Network, who will speak
on effective leadership from a
management perspective;
Dwayne Wallace of ZNS, who
will speak on customer service;
Phillip Simon of the Chamber
of Commerce, who will address
international agreements and
how they affect hotel workers;
Elsidney Saunders of Toast-
masters; and Quebell Rolle and
Selvyn McKenzie, vice presi-
dents of the union.
Ms Martin explained that this
year, they are "limiting the
scope of the conference" by
dealing specifically with cus-
tomer service.
She said the aim for next year
and the years beyond is to host
a mini-conference once a
month, leading into the major
conference every July.
Mr Bain said the union wants
to help hotels "produce the kind
of employees we can be proud
of".
This seminar and workshop
will feature officers and mem-
bers from around the country,
including New Providence, Har-
bour Island, Exuma, San Sal-
vador, and Grand Bahama.
The union boasts of having
provided four scholarships each
year at either the College of the
Bahamas, the Bahamas Hotel
Training College, the Bahamas
Baptist College, or the Bahamas
Technical and Vocational Insti-
tute.
Also, union members have
taken advantage of computer
training and foreign language
courses.

$2.75m deal




to expand



ch an n el .... .......... ...



into Bimini ij; lat


BY KARAN MINNIS
GOVERNMENT has signed
a contract to expand the Bimini
channel inlet, Minister of Works
and Utilities Bradley Roberts
announced yesterday.
Bahamas Construction and
Development Limited (BCDL),
a subsidiary of US-based Dev-
con International, has been
granted the tender to complete
the project at a cost of $2.75
million, Mr Roberts said.
The channel, which is to be
expected to be 14 feet deep with
an estimated entrance width of


Bimini MP Obie Wilchcombe
speaks at the contract signing
200 feet, will follow the exist-
ing natural channel before turn-
ing west across the near-shore
sand bar, he explained.
Speaking at the official con-
tract signing in Alice Town on
Thursday, Mr Roberts said the


entrance will be equipped with
proper channel markers and
navigational aids to mark the
new alignment.
"The channel will all have an
advanced maintenance basin or
an over cut on the northern side
of its seaward section," he said.
"This will act as a 'sink' to catch
sand as it migrates along the
shoal southwards towards the
channel; thus increasing the life
of the channel."
He said the dredging will also
extend north into the bay and
up to the customs wharf on
North Bimini, for the benefit of
the mail boat and other vessels
that presently find it difficult to
navigate the area.
Bimini was once a premier
sports fishing and yachting des-
tination, but locals say that over
the years, the entrance to the
harbour has become so full of
silt that only shallow draft boats
are able to enter, causing a
reduction in the number.of
boating visitors.
Mr Roberts said the expan-
sion of the channel should elim-
inate this problem.
"There are many studies,
some dating as far back to the
late 60s, where previous gov-
ernments have attempted to
address this vexing problem,"
said Mr Roberts. "Those were
met with limited success, as the
solution to the problem
required an in-depth study of
the tidal flow in the harbour,
which carried a significant cost
factor."
Mr Roberts assured the pub-
lic that the harbour dredging
"will not adversely affect the
charm of this lovely island as
the appropriate environmental
impact assessments have" been.
carried out.",
"The dredged sand will be
placed along the shoreline of
North Bimini with the view of
enhancing the beach," he
added.
Mr Roberts said the equip-
ment for the dredging will arrive
in Bimini during August, and
the project is expected to be
completed in just over a month.

that meeting, a number of deci-
sions were taken and I am
heartened to come here and see
that some of those decisions
have been put in place with
regards to persons living with.
disabilities."
Senator Morris said the
Jamaican government stands
ready to assist the Bahamas in
"whatsoever ways are possible"
regarding the implementation
of additional policies, initiatives,
programmes and services that
will positively impact the lives
of persons living with disabili-
ties.
Senator Morris said he
recently held discussions with
Mrs Griffin regarding an
employment and disabilities fair
held in Kingston that showcased
the skills of persons living with
disabilities to private sector
employers.
"That was a tremendous suc-
cess and it is my belief that (the


fair) is something that can be
replicated here to show the gen-
eral public that the government
is sensitive and concerned about
matters pertaining to the dis-
abled," he said.
Senator Morris went blind in
1989 at the age of 20 after devel-
oping glaucoma while in high
school five years earlier.
Prime Minister Christie
assured the senator that his
government will do everything
possible to ensure that disabled
Bahamians share in the coun-
try's resources are protected
and advanced.
Mr Christie pointed out that
government began the trek
towards achieving that objec-
tive three years ago when he
decided to create a ministry
"separate and apart from one
that had before been a depart-
ment or an appendage to anoth-
er ministry", to bring focus to
the broad area of social services.

Winding Bay


ensures it is


'slightly better in Abaco'


By KRISTINA McNEIL
ABACO "It's better in the
Bahamas, but slightly better in
Abaco," boasted Peter de
Savary, founder and chairman
of the Abaco Club on Winding
Bay.
Open for nearly a year, the
$250 million development sells
itself as a 365 day-a-year holiday
destination giving visitors "a
feel for the culture, for the his-
tory, for the ecology, for all the
lovely beautiful things that are
around us at Winding Bay," Mr
de Savary said.
Some parts of the Club are
still under construction and the
scent of wood is heavy in the
air as it is cut and shaped to
construct the picturesque cot-
tages and houses featured on
the property.
But all the sawing and ham-
mering takes nothing away from
the powdery sands and smiling
faces that welcome visitors and
locals to the resort.
At a price of $65,000 for club
membership, one can choose


Peter deSavary


and purchase a lot for con-
struction on the oceanfront or
golf course area.
The resort staff, which is
made up of 80 per cent
Bahamians, is working on
increasing that number to max-
imise on the Abaconian services
already in place.
According to Mr de Savary,
he is always reminding his
employees that he needs them
as much as they need him.
"I believe it's more than just a
job for them. They have a feel-
ing of enthusiasm as they get
the opportunity to show off for
the visitors how great the
Bahamas is," he said. "The
lifestyle and all the wonderful
people who work here are part
of the team, an extended family.
No matter what your job is, the
person cleaning the toilet is as
important as the general man-
ager. The person weeding the
gardens is as important to me as
the person running the golf
course."
Mr de Savary said he was
looking for the "perfect climate


and ecological conditions" when
he began his search for the ide-
al place to construct an authen-
tic Scottish-style links golf
course. Five years after he start-
ed, he came across the property
in Winding Bay and decided to
make his dream a reality.
"The Scottish-links course is
the original game of golf, the
most wonderful game. That's
why thousands of people every
year go to Scotland and Ire-
land," said Mr de Savary.
"Golfers and golf experts
who have been here are all sup-
porting our claim that this is
one of the great Scottish-links;
courses in the world. Ithink it's
going to become a legend and
we're going to work very hard
to make it become a legend."
Setting out to build the resort
and golf course without a bud-
get, construction began in Jan-
uary 2004, and the resort open-
ing its door to the first visitors in
December of the same year.
"I am not a company, just one
man, an entrepreneur," Mr de
Savary said.


"We are not trying to create
Europe or Florida in the
Bahamas," he continued. "We
are trying as much as we possi-
bly can to give the impression to
visitors from all over the world
that when they come here
they're getting a real out-island
experience a feel for the cul-
ture, for the history, for the
ecology, for all the lovely beau-
tiful things that are around us at
Winding Bay."
At the cottages and houses
on the property, Mr de Savary is
proud of the fact that, "visitors
can work on your computer as
quick as the guy on Wall Street,
the water is just as good, elec-
tricity service is excellent."
In the first year, Mr de Savary
was able to erect 19 buildings
at the resort because of pre-
engineered building designs and
materials and help from vari-
ous local contractors.
"At one point there were
between 13 and 15 local con-
tractors working on various con-
-struction tasks as the project
expanded," said Timothy Neill,


a native of Nassau and the
architect for all of the buildings
on the property.
According to Mr Neill, all of
the buildings have built-in hur-
ricane safety features.
"The buildings are designed
so the wood has all the stress
factors built into it, and its all
engineered to take 160mph
winds," he said. "The whole
shape is taken into considera-
tion and then it's, all anchored
down by steel plates."
Shortly after construction
began in 2004, Abaco was hit
by two hurricanes destroying
most of the 109 different types
of natural foliage found on the
property.
After an intense landscaping
programme, the resort is
expected to "be a garden of
Eden by this time next year."
"I don't want to change any-
thing, I want to compliment it,"
said Mr de Savary, boasting of
the indigenous plants and trees
the resort has managed to pre-
serve throughout the construc-.
tion process.


Junkanoo leaders


'Feel the Rush' in


Grand Bahama


BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Nassau
Junkanoo leaders were in
Grand Bahama Friday to par-
ticipate in the drawing order for
the highly anticipated 'Feel the
Rush' Junknaoo parade, in
which contestants battled for
some $75,000 in cash prizes.
The three groups the Sax-
ons, Roots and Valleyboys will
compete against an All-Star
Freeport ensemble, which is
comprised of members of the
six junkanoo groups on Grand
Bahama.
Gus Cooper, leader of the
Valleyboys, Saxon member
Sean Smith and Roots member
Brenton Rolle represented the
groups at a 10pm drawing held
at the Goombay Summer Festi-
val at the International Bazaar.
Preparations for the July 31
parade are underway at Explor-
er's Way, where bleacher seat-
ing have been erected for spec-
tators.
Organisers say ticket sales are
going extremely well with seat-
ing going for as much as $120.
Peter Adderley, public rela-
tions spokesperson for the


event, said the parade time has
been changed from 6.30pm to
8pm to accommodate the wish-
es of Grand Bahama Christian
Council (GBCC).
Because the parade is sched-
uled on Sunday, the Bahamas
Christian Council thought the
initial afternoon time was not
appropriate.
"As you are aware, ,six
months ago we met with the
GBCC president Ricardo Grant
who did not want the tradition-
al Sunday churches interrupted
and so we were initially going
with 6.30pm start.
"But he thought we should
go a little later for those per-
sons who go to evening service,"
Mr Adderley explained.
Parade manager Derek King,
who is also the Grand Bahama
Junkanoo Committee chairman,
said the parade promises to be a
very exciting event.
"This has never been done
before," Mr King said.
The parade is part of the
activities that have been
planned by the Grand Bahama
Port Authority to kick off its
50th annual celebration of the
signing of the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement on August 4.

Beginning with
our nation's first
anniversary of
Independence
on July 10, 1974,
the late Mr William (Billy)
Godet inaugurated a tradition
of hosting an all-day party on
the grounds of his residence
in Danottage Estates, to which
he invited all of his friends -
irrespective of their political
persuasion.
In time, it became a very
popular event. The festivities
began shortly after the nation-
al service of thanksgiving, held
on Clifford Park in the early
years, had concluded. Initially,
only men attended the party,
with Mrs Godet and some of
her friends catering to them
with a lavish spread of tasty
food items they had prepared
in her large kitchen.
The number of guests
attending the affair soon
swelled, however, as some of
Mr Godet's friends began to
invite their friends. The event
gradually became an integrat-
ed affair, as ladies began to
join the party even though
they huddled together in a
separate area of the Godets'
vast estate.

Succeeded

At this annual event, it was
not unusual to see the late
Prime Minister Sir Lynden
Pindling and Opposition
Leader Sir Cecil Wallace-
Whitfield hob-nobbing togeth-
er. When Mr Hubert Ingra-
ham succeeded Sir Cecil as
Opposition Leader, nothing
changed in this regard even
after both Mr Ingraham and
Sir Lynden changed roles as
Prime Minister and Leader of
the Opposition. This occurred
following the Ingraham-led
Free National Movement's


defeat of Sir Lynden's Pro-
gressive Liberal Party in the
August 19, 1992 General Elec-
tion.
Traditional

Following Mr Godet's death
in 1997, Mr Bismark Coakley
has continued this annual tra-
ditional fete at his San Souci
residence, off the Eastern
Road. Thus, it was at that site
on Monday, July 11, when the
Independence holiday was cel-
ebrated, that we sat with Sir
Arlington Butler and a few
friends at a table enjoying the
festivities. There, both of us
reminisced over our inter-
twining life paths and that
of Milo Butler, Jr since the
three of us first met in January
1950 as students at the Gov-
ernment High School (GHS),
then located in Nassau Court,
opposite the British Colonial
Hotel.
At that time, GHS had a
varied programme of extra-
curricular activities, in which.
student participation was
mandatory. It ranged from
one's involvement in a vari-
ety of sporting events to tak-
ing part in a debating society,
all designed as an effective
socialisation process. In the
sporting aspect of this pro-
gramme, Arlie (as Sir Arling-
ton was then known) excelled
at cricket and, even while a
student, was an outstanding
batsman for the St Agnes
team that played in the regular
series of the Bahamas Cricket
Association.
The year 1953 was a memo-
rable one for all of us. When
the Progressive Liberal Party
(PLP) was founded during
that autumn, the three of us
became student followers of
that political organisation. As
our father had died earlier


VIEWPOINT

G EORG E MAC KEY


that year, we dropped out of
GHS at the end of the same,
thereby curtailing our formal
education. However, Arlie
and Milo Jr completed their
studies there, and then went
on to pursue their tertiary
education in England.
Upon their return home, we
all continued our involvement


with the PLP and were very
active members of the same
when majority rule was ush-
ered in following the January
10, 1967 General Election.
That election had ended in an
18-18 tie between the United.
Bahamian Party (UBP) and
the. PLP in the then 38-mem-
ber House of Assembly.


However, the support of
successful Independent can-
didate Alvin R Braynen (who
became Speaker) and Labour
candidate Randol F Fawkes
(who became Minister of
Labour) enabled the PLP to
lead a coalition government
with a majority of one. After a
mere 14 months, that govern-


ment ended upon the sudden
death in early 1968 of Mr Uri-
ah McPhee, the PLP member
for the Shirlea constituency.
In the ensuing General
Election that was held on
April 10, 1968, with an
increased number of House
seats, Arlie was elected as the
member for the :iew Cul-


mersville constituency. Arlie's
election to the House of
Assembly paved the way for
Milo Jr to be elected as chair-
man at the party's convention
in October 1968, as the PLP
constitution did not allow a
sitting parliamentarian to hold
such office at that time.
Following Milo's appoint-
ment to the Senate in 1969,
we were then elected as his
successor at the party's con-
vention in October of that
year. Thus, three old GHS stu-
dents held the distinction of
having succeeded each other
as PLP chairman during the
first three years of majority
rule locally.
However, the intertwining
of our life paths did not end
there at least, not politically.
Following our election to the
House of Assembly on Sep-
tember 19, 1972, the three of
us eventually ended up as
Members of Parliament.
There, both Arlie and Milo
served as Speakers of the
House. The privilege was also
ours to serve as Deputy
Speaker to Sir Clifford Dar-
ling while he was House
Speaker between 1982 and
1987. In 1987, Sir Clifford was
elevated to the office of Gov-
ernor General of the Com-
monwealth of the Bahamas.

Political

Arlie parted ways with the
PLP in the early 1970s and
then cast his political lot with
the Free National Movement
(FNM). Following our re-elec-
tion to Parliament in 1987, we
were appointed by Prime Min-
ister Pindling to serve in his
Cabinet as Minister of Hous-
ing and National Insurance, a
post we held until the PLP's
defeat by the FNM at the polls
on August 19, 1992. When the


Ingraham-led FNM govern-
ment assumed office there-
after, Arlie served in its Cabi-
net as Minister of Works and
Utilities.

Successful
Arlie then went on to
become a successful diplomat,
serving as our nation's Con-
sul General in New York,
before capping off his distin-
guished public career by being
knighted by Her Majesty
Queen Elizabeth II, thus he
is now Sir Arlington Griffith
Butler. Not to be outdone,
Milo Jr also had the honour
of serving as our country's
Consul General in Miami dur-
ing the first PLP. administra-
tion. During the FNM admin-
istration, the privilege was
ours to have been also hon-
oured by Her Majesty the
Queen, in being made an Offi-
cer of the British Empire
(OBE) for our public service
to this country.
Finally, among the many
things we have in common
with Sir Arlington and Milo
Jr is the fact that we are all
Anglicans, are very active in
our respective churches, and
for more than a half-century
have shared a wonderful
friendship. Thus, when the
intertwining nature of our life-
paths is considered, it leads us
to the following conclusion:
life is a journey we begin at
birth, the ultimate destination
of which remains oblivious to
us for the greater part of its
duration.
Think on these things.

Hart Jr completes



Royal Navy Young



Officers' Course


THE Royal Bahamas
Defence Force recently wel-
comed Midshipman Louis
Hart Jr into its officers' corps
after he returned from a year-
long course at Britannia Roy-
al Naval College (BRNC) in
Dartmouth, England.
The Royal Navy Young
Officers' Course, which was
conducted from June 21, 2004
to 23 June 2005, prepared the
21-year-old for challenges and
responsibilities related to a
career in a naval military envi-
ronment.
Hart trained alongside oth-
er officer cadets from the
United Kingdom, the Middle
East, Africa, and the
Caribbean.
His year was divided into
six phases. The first was the
'militarization phase' where
basic military drills, instruc-
tions and etiquette were
imparted.

Onboard

The second phase served to
prepare him for the six weeks
he would spend at sea
onboard a Royal Navy war-
ship during the third or 'ini-
tial sea training' (IST) phase.
For the IST phase, Hart was
assigned to the British frigate
HMS Cambeltown, aboard
which he and colleagues trav-
eled to such places as Dubai
and Jordan and Bahrain.
While onboard, they
assumed duties and responsi-
bilities including officer of the
watch, officer of the day and
divisional officer; tasks they
will be expected to carry out
as junior officers in their vari-
ous navies.
The core curriculum of the
course included coastal navi-
gation, watch-keeping and
ship defence drills, which inte-
grated damage control, fire
fighting, man overboard exer-
cises and much more.
/


The last three phases of the
course incorporated profes-
sional studies in such areas as
celestial and coastal naviga-
tion, seamanship, marine engi-
neering, weapons engineering,
oceanography, ship technolo-
gy, radar and telecommunica-


tions and meteorology.
Louis Hart Jr says he is
excited about his new portfo-
lio as a junior administrator
in the RBDF and looks
toward a fruitful and produc-
tive career while serving his
country.

Andros airport not closed





when 20-year-old man died


By KARIN HERIG and
PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporters


THE San Andros airport was
not closed at the time of the
death of a young man on Thurs-
day and there was no impedi-
ment preventing emergency
medical flights, the Ministry of
Transport and Aviation stated
yesterday.
Following a report by The
Tribune on Thursday in which
Andros sources claimed that
Rufus Knowles Jr, 20, died at
the San Andros airport while
attempts were being made to
get permission to fly him to
Nassau on an emergency char-
ter, the ministry launched a
"full and immediate" investiga-
tion into the matter.
In a statement released late
yesterday evening, the ministry


said its investigation has
revealed that published reports
concerning the death of Mr
Knowles are incorrect.
"The public should be aware
that there is and was no imped-
iment preventing the departure
of an emergency medical flight
from North Andros airport. The
airport at North Andros is not
now and was never closed for
such emergency flights," the
statement read.
Facts uncovered in a report
by the Department of Public
Health, the press release said,
are that Mr Knowles was seen
at 9.45am at the Nicholls Town
Clinic. After being stabilised by
the doctor there, he left the clin-
ic at approximately 11.40 am to
go to the airport.
"Director of Civil Aviation
Cyril Saunders said that the log
kept at the Nassau Internation-


Ministry says there

was nothing to stop

emergency flights


al Airport, the Daily Record of
Facility Operation, at the
Department of Civil Aviation
indicates that a request came
for emergency clearance at
11.15 am on Thursday. The pilot
was advised that the airport was
open. No other request came
from North Andros on that
day," the transport and aviation
ministry said.
According to the report by
the public health department,
the patient's condition, howev-
er, worsened and he was taken


back to the clinic where he was
pronounced dead at 12 .noon.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday Rufus Knowles Sr,
the father of the young man
who died at the airport, claimed
that the airport was closed at
the time the family was attempt-
ing to organise an emergency
medical evacuation.
"We were trying to get him to
Nassau but we had to wait on a
plane. So he never made it. The
plane was either in Nassau, or
Fresh Creek and they were say-


ing that the airport wasn't open,
or something. So I'm supposed
to take him all the way down
to Fresh Creek? Come from
Red Bay then head all the way
down to Fresh Creek? That's a
waste of time.
"I have a sister-in-law, she is a
reserve and she was trying to
work something out for us,
mainly because she was hear-
ing the same foolishness that
the airport was closed. We real-
ly need that airport that's
really important. I couldn't see
them closing it in the first place.
If you ga' spite one person, you
shouldn't spite everybody. I
really hope this wasn't politics,"
he said.
Previous reports by witnesses
stated that Mr Knowles, who
had been battling cancer for a
number of years, died at the San
Andros airport at 10 o'clock


Thursday morning.
A press release from the Min-
istry of Transport and Aviation
was released at 12.45pm Thurs-
day, announcing the opening of
San Andros airport for domes-
tic travel.
The airport had been closed
since Monday and was report-
edly scheduled for an October 4
opening. However, it was
opened last week to accommo-
date passengers travelling to the
regatta.
It was closed again on Mon-
day. When it opened yesterday,
North Andros residents report-
ed that "absolutely, nothing"
had been done to change the
airport. According to a source
on the island, the pilots at San
Andros airport, which is the hub
for Western Air, were warned
that they would be punished if
any flights left that runway.

- - Cases (From page 1)


Eleuthera MP said that he "has heard of quite a number of cases
across Eleuthera, specifically James Cistern, several years ago".
Mr Smith said some Eleutherans have raised questions about the
US facility at Governors Harbour since its closure in 1980.
"Although I know of no scientific evidence yet, many people are
concerned. Some of the residents wonder whether things got in the
water lens" he said.
Mr Smith said he knows that "some equipment and apparatus
have been left on the site." He said he questions whether cancer
causing materials may have been buried in the ground.
"There must be careful consideration wherever there is specu-
lation. I welcome expert research of these cases and clean up cam-
paigns," Mr Smith said. "There must be a speedy investigation
into the alleged cases," he said.
Earlier this week Keod Smith said that concerns of an increase
in cancer cases have been raised since the establishment of the US
Navy's Atlantic Undersea Testing and Evaluation Centre
(AUTEC). "It does concern me and particularly the government,"
he said.
On Tuesday Mr Smith said that the BEST Commission was cur-
rently in discussions with AUTEC through the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs about researching these cases.
Yesterday, Lieutenant Marks, Press Liaison Officer at the Pen-
tagon in Washington, told The Tribune that he "is currently look-
ing into these claims."
"I have called around and sought to gain information into these
concerns. We are currently looking into it and will get back to
you on Monday," he said.


The Ministry of Social Services yesterday said it was concerned about young
children selling items on the street, particularly in areas with large volumes of traffic.

the top of the fifth inning.

Lavern and


Jackie shine at


Grand Prix event


M By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
YESTERDAY saw strongwoman Lavern
Eve and long jumper Jackie Edwards give
superb performances with Edwards finally
qualifying for the IAAF World Championships.
Fresh from her close victory at the Coli-
nalmperial Senior Central American and
Caribbean Championships over the Indepen-
dence holiday weekend, Eve headed a list of
three Bahamians competing at the Norwich
Union London Grand Prix.
The veteran 40-year-old national record
holder hurled the women's javelin 60.66 metres
to secure the winning throw on Friday.
Her nearest rival was Goldie Sayers of Great
Britain, who came in second with a throw of
58.54. Third place went to Kim Kreiner of the
United States with 56.71.
Although she scratched both her first and
third attempts, Eve, the last of seven competi-
tors to compete in the event, turned in a solid
performance with three marks over the 60
metre barrier.
She did 60.32 on her second attempt, 57.88
on the fourth, 60.07 on the fifth and she saved
her best for the last with her 60.66 mark on the
sixth.
Eve's winning toss of 61.11 at Sr. CAC
Championships turned out to be her season's
best.
While Eve dominated her specialty, Jackie


Edwards produced her season's best of 6.62
for second place in the meet to surpass the
IAAF B qualifying mark of 6.60. The A qual-
ifying mark is 6.75.
Edwards, who produced a previous season's
best of 6.58 in El Paso, Texas on April 16,
turned in a leap of 6.71 for the bronze at the Sr
CAC Championships, but it was wind-aided.
She was given another chance to go to
Europe to try and accomplish the feat and she
did yesterday to secure her spot in Helsinki,
Finland next month.
Third
Also at the meet, Leevan Sands held his
own in the men's triple jump. The Sr CAC
long jump champion (8.13) and triple jump
bronze medallist (16.83), produced another
third place finish.
Sands, competing as the fifth out of seven
competitors in the event, popped a season's
best leap of 16.85 metres on his fourth attempt.
He had a series of jumps, inclusive of 16.63,
16.70, 16.50, 16.85, no mark and 16.81.
Nathan Douglas of Great Britain won the
event with a leap of 17.32 on his fourth attempt.
Douglas was the last competitor to compete.
American Kenta Bell was second with 16.87.
Competing right after Sands and just ahead of
Douglas, Bell popped 16.87 on his third
attempt.

Bethel stars


Dorcy


FROM page one
Edney Bethel cracked a solo
homer off starting and losing
pitcher Leroy Thompson with
two out in the third.
The Dorcy Park Boyz came
up with the game winning run
in the fourth when Sigmund
'Gunman' Bethel had a one-
out double and scored on
Demont Charlow's run-pro-
ducing single.
But in the bottom of the
fourth, the Truckers had a
golden opportunity to score
when Marvin Wood singled
and he was knocked around
to third on Winston Sey-
mouir's double.
. However, Edney Bethel
struck out the side Charles
Rolle, Tommy 'Bucker T' Fer-
guson and Terrance Culmer,
just as he did in the second,
to get out of the jam.,
Then in the fifth, with one
out and Windsor Bethel safe-
ly on first on a walk, the
Truckers brought Terrance
Culmer from third to the
mound for Thompson.
Culmer threw two balls to
Edney Bethel and then polite-
ly put him on with an inten-
tional walk.
After that, there was a
bang-bang play as Mario Ford
hit a grounder to Truckers'
second baseman Adrian
Hutchinson, who flipped the
ball over to Marvin Wood as
they attempted to get Edney
Bethel out.
Wood made the play as
Bethel slid into the base, but
as he attempted to throw the
ball to Winston Seymour bat
first to get Mario Ford out,
*Wood and Bethel collided and
they started fighting.
Both benches cleared
before the officials finally
restored order.
The Truckers, who had
trouble hitting Edney Bethel,
couldn't hit Edmund Bethel
either as the Dorcy Park Boys
held on for the win.
TBS did score their first and
only run in the bottom of the

fifth when calmer heads pre-
vailed as Teran Wood greeted
Edmund Bethel with a stand-
up triple and scored on a wild
pitch.
But Thompson said his
Truckers' team-mates didn't
play with any intensity.
"They played a good night
tonight. Our bats were kind
of dead," he insisted. "They
played well and they beat us."
Thompson, however, said
credit has to be given to
Edney Betlhel.
"I think he's considered one
of the best pitchers in the
Bahamas. Somehow he's
adjusted to us," Thompson
lamented, "hopefully we will
catch up with him by playoff
time."

'Chips' McPhee cas


es in


with top performance


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THIRD sacker Bernie
'Chips' McPhee was overdue a
big performance. On Thurs-
day night she produced it for
the Degeo Bommers.
McPhee, dropped all the
way to seventh in the line-up,
came through with a two-run
in-the-park home-run to high-
light a four-run bottom of the
sixth inning as the Bommers
blasted the DHL Brackettes
5-2 at the Churchill Tener
Knowles National Softball
Stadium.
With the victory, the Bom-
mers remained in second
place at 13-2 as they continue
to chase the undefeated
defending champions Electro
Telecom Wildcats, who are
13-0.

Battle
The loss kept the Brackettes
in third at 7-8, but they are in
a close battle for the final two
playoff spots with the Ran-
della's Swingers and the Prop-
er Care Pool Lady Sharks,
both tied at 5-10.
McPhee's clutch hit enabled
the Bommers to put away
from a close 1-0 lead (thanks
to Dawn Forbes' RBI ground
out that knocked in Christine
Humes in the fifth).
"The innings were late, the
score was tied and I knew we
needed to go ahead, so I dug
deep within myself," McPhee
stressed. "It's all about hav-
ing confidence in yourself."


Although they didn't play
up to their full potential,
McPhee said they came


around in time in the late out on top," she stated. "That tie more, so we can be better
innings to pull off the win. is what we wanted. But I still prepared for the close games
"The end result is we came think we need to practise a lit- like these."
It was a pitching duel
between Bommers' Shonell
Symonette and Brackettes'
DEGEO BOMMERS' Ernestine Butler before
pitcher Shonell Symonete Degeo put the game away in
shows her versatfilitv as she : the sixth.


Home
Following McPhee's homer,
Symonette helped her own
cause with a two-out single,
Christine Hanna got on base
on a fielder's choice and
Dawn Forbes' RBI single
drove in Symonette and Han-
na came home on an error.
Symonette finished with a


six-hitter, striking out three
for the win, while Stubbs was
tagged with the loss on a
seven hitter, striking out
one.
The Brackettes got their
first run in the third for a 1-0
lead as Crystal Delancy drew
a lead-off walk and eventually
scored on an error.
They got their final run in $
the seventh as Delancy came
up with a one-out walk and
came home on a double steal
as Jeannine Wallace, who sin-
gled, got to second.
But, as they did in the first,
second, third and sixth, the
Brackettes blew another
opportunity to score a couple
more runs.

WITH the disappointment of the Bahamas Association of
Athletic Associations' National Open Track and Field Cham-
pionships behind him, Avard Moncur is eagerly looking for-
ward to the IAAF World Championships.
The national 400 metre champion will have to prove his fitness
to the BAAA before he's allowed to travel and compete with the
World Championship team in Helsinki, Finland next month
after he suffered a slight cramp during the nationals.
"I had a slight muscle pull during the nationals, but right now
everything is fine," Moncur said. "I'm back in training and I'm
doing quite well."
Moncur, fourth at the Nationals in Grand Bahama, is back in
Atlanta, Georgia where he's training under his new coach, Inno-
cent Egbunike, a 1984 Olympic silver medallist.
Since the nationals, Moncur has been told by the BAAA
that he will have to undergo a fitness test to prove that he,
along with Dennis Darling, is prepared to compete in Helsinki.
"Right now, I don't have a problem having to prove myself,"
he insisted. "I know that I'm fit and I'm ready to run fast. What-
ever it takes, I will do what I have to do to prove myself."

Compete
Next weekend in Ireland, Moncur said he will compete in a
meet to prove to the BAAA that he's ready to run, even though
the former world champion will only be relegated to a leg on the
men's 4 x 400 relay team.
While he didn't come back home to run on the team that
won the gold at the Colinalmperial Senior Central American and
Caribbean Championships at the Thomas A Robinson Track and
Field Stadium earlier this month, Moncur had nothing but praise
for his team-mates.
"I always knew that we had the potential to run well, especially
at home in a major meet like this one," said Moncur of the
team of Aaron Cleare, Andrae Williams, Nathaniel McKinney
and Chris Brown.
"They just went out and proved that they can do it. I was real-
ly pleased with what I heard about the team. I think it only
serves for what we can do at the World Championships this
year."
With the World Championship team heading to Helsinki on
August 1, Moncur said, if given the opportunity to compete, he
will do what he can to help the team duplicate the feat.
S"In the past, we only had about two guys who were capable of
running 44 splits, now we have at least two more, I think we can
go out there and really run a very fast time," Moncur projected.
"In the past, we had some uncertainty as to who is going to run
where or who is going to do what. But now, there's no uncer-
tainty because we have sufficient guys who are all capable of run-
ning very well."
