Bahamians mourn


Former commissioner


commits suicide


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE BAHAMAS is mourn-
ing the death of former Miami
city commissioner Arthur Teele
Jr, who Foreign Affairs Minister
Fred Mitchell described yester-
day as a "friend and a brother"
to Bahamians.
The suicide of Mr Teele
Wednesday evening in the lob-
by of The Miami Herald shook
the Bahamian community in
South Florida as hundreds
expressed their devastation over
the loss of a well-liked
Caribbean advocate.
Mr Teele, 59, was married to'
the former Stephanie Kerr of
West End, Grand Bahama.
Alma Adams, Bahamas Con-
sul General in Miami told The
Tribune yesterday: "The
response from Bahamians here
has been amazing. We are all
truly mourning his passing. He
was a brilliant lawyer and a
great advocate for the
Caribbean."
The former city commission-
er had always been a great sup-
porter of South Florida's
Bahamian community, Mrs
Adams said.
Mr Teele committed suicide
on Wednesday evening, just
hours after the weekly, Miami
New Times, published lurid sex
and corruption accusations
against him. It was a 14-page
spread describing Mr Teel's
alleged sordid relationships with
crooked contractors, drug deal-
ers and a transvestite prostitute,
The Miami Herald reported.
The transvestite described their


alleged relationship on televi-
sion after Mr Teele's death
Wednesday night.
At 6.05pm the former com-
missioner walked from his near-
by home into the lobby of The
Miami Herald. He pulled a
semi-automatic pistol from a
green canvas bag and put it to
the right side of his head.
"Mr Teele then stood with
the gun to his head and watched
the street through the lobby's
glass doors," The Miami Her-
ald reported. "As police arrived,
he shot himself, security guard
Eduardo Pavon said. Mr Teele
fell on his back. The pistol clat-
tered across the terrazzo floor."
Before pulling the trigger Mr
Teele told Felix Nazco, anoth-
er security guard: "Tell DeFede
to tell my wife that I love her."
He was referrring to Herald
columnist Jim DeFede, whom
he had known for 14 years.
He died at 7.50pm at Jack-
son Memorial Hospital's Ryder
Trauma Centre.
During Mr Teel's 15-year
political career he served on the
Miami City Commission and
Miami-Dade County Commis-
sion.
Mr Teele, who was hailed by
many as a brilliant and imposing
politician, repeatedly became
the centre of controversy in
recent years.
In May, he was sentenced to
two years probation for threat-
ening a police officer.
He was also scheduled to go
on trial in September on
charges of state corruption. Last

Gap between rich and




poor is 'considerable'


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas has one of the
highest rates of economic
inequality in the region accord-
ing to a government study.
Prime Minister Christie told
The Tribune yesterday that he
was shocked when he saw the
final version of a study into the
worst urban areas in New Prov-
idence yesterday.
In her introduction, author
Desiree Cox said that despite
being one of the richest coun-
tries in the region, the distance
between the rich and poor ele-
ments of Bahamian society is
considerable.
The study, a socio-demo-
graphic profile of Nassau's


urban areas, will be used as a
"working document" to affect
changes to areas viewed as
"ghettos" Mr Christie said yes-
terday.
He was speaking at the Farm
Road Urban Renewal Projec-
t's summer youth programme
at East Street Gospel Chapel.
During his address, the
Prime Minister raised the 133-
page study, produced from
research conducted on the
Farm Road, Englerston, Fort
Charlotte, and Bain and Grants
Town areas.
The study covers topics such
as Bahamian and African his-
tory, education, and economic
sustainability.
It represents years of work in
the ghettos, including numer-
ous surveys and accounts of real
life experiences of the people,
the social workers who deal
with them and the teachers and
police officers that must serve
and protect these areas.
"This document will mature
into being a working document
to help us come to grips with
the challenges in these areas of
the Bahamas," said Mr Christie.

Inequality

The prime minister said he is
committed to reducing the lev-
el of inequality in the country in
terms of opportunities, educa-
tion, and standards of living.
He encouraging the 100 chil-
dren assembled to "keep good
friends" who would not lead
them down the wrong paths in
life.
"We care about you, and we
want to give you every oppor-
tunity to help you to be. what
you want to be," he told the
children.
Mr Christie also announced
that the next step for the Urban
Renewal Programme would be
to join the National Youth Ser-

vice.
"We must know what exists
on the streets and in the home;
we want to know why young
people are challenged; we want
to know why serious crimes are
happening where young men
have no respect for human life,"
said Mr Christie.


Mr Christie also said he is
committed to seeing that vio-
lence is removed from schools.
"I'm driven by the need to
unleash these programmes to
ensure that young people don't
hide guns and knives near the
schools and then use them as
we now see happening."


Tropical wave develops


in eastern Caribbean


ON MONDAY the Bahamas
can expect to experience the
affects of a vigorous tropical
wave now brewing in the east-
ern Caribbean, met officials told
The Tribune.
Even if the wave is not
upgraded to a depression, an
increase in clouds and showers
will most likely to continue into
Tuesday.
More information on the
tropical wave will be made
available today after an aircraft
flies through and investigates
the weather system.
There are also a few weak
tropical waves in the Caribbean
region, but they are not expect-
ed to develop into larger-scale
storms.
Situated 575 miles east of the
north Leeward Islands yester-
day afternoon, the tropical wave
is expected to become better
organised and perhaps develop
into a tropical depression with-
in the next 24 hours, according
to Basil Dean from the


Bahamas Meteorological
Office.
Over this time, the system
will be monitored carefully as
it moves along a west-northwest
path at 15 to 20mph, he said.

Man is charged with




murder in Freeport


* BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT A Nassau man
charged with murder lashed out
at a ZNS cameraman following
his arraignment Thursday
morning in Freeport.
The commotion unfolded
shortly after 11am, as -police
officials were escorting Kevin
Deon Roker to a waiting police
vehicle for transfer from the
Garnet Levarity Justice Center.
Cameraman Philip Curry was
pointing the camera at Roker,
who was hanging his head down


and hiding his face from the
media.
As he approached the cam-
eraman, he kicked the camera
out of his hand.
Roker, 34, of Golden Gates,
New Providence, was arrested
in Nassau in connection with
the murder of a Freeport
woman nearly two years ago.
He was flown to Grand
Bahama, where he was charged
with the murder of Jewel Mott-
Wallace before Magistrate
Franklyn Williams yesterday.
The victim's body was found
in an abandoned building on
Adventurer's Way and McKen-
zie Street on November 29,


2003. She was 35.
One of her children called
police on November 9th, 2003
to report that she had been
missing since November 7th.
Roker, who was not repre-
sented by counsel, was not
required to enter a plea.
He was remanded to Fox Hill
Prison until November 28 for a
preliminary inquiry into the
matter.
In other court matters, two
Jamaican nationals were
charged with several serious
offences, including armed rob-
bery, causing damage and
firearm possession.
Euton Olivier Edwards, 23,


and Damion Costa Allen, 22,
were charged with four counts
of armed robbery, two counts
of causing damage and four
counts of possession of a
firearm with the intent to
endanger life.
The men are accused of sev-
eral armed robberies that
occurred on the beach at the
Island Seas Resort in the past
three months.
They were not required to
enter a plea to the charges.
Bail was denied and both
were remanded to Fox Hill
Prison until November 21 and
30 for preliminary inquiry.


Training increased to

prevent tourism slump


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
INITIATIVES to secure a
higher number of returning
tourists to the Bahamas have
been "stepped up" amid fears
that the Bahamas could lose
millions of tourists.
Frank Comito, Bahamas
Hotel Association's (BHA)
executive director, said there
are several programmes in
place to address the most fre-
quent visitor complaints.
Current visitor surveys indi-
cate that the Bahamas could
lose 4.5 million tourists in the
next ten years.
Mr Comito explained that
the Bahamas has high prices,
and that among the top five
reasons tourists give not to
return to the Bahamas, they
often name "poor value for
their dollar."
Other reasons given in the
exit survey include poor atti-
tude, poor service and low
quality."
"Price of course is always a
factor, always a relevant com-
plaint. If we want the money,


we have to give the service,"
he said.
Mr Comito said that
although it is the country's
"intrinsic beauty and situa-
tion" which attracts visitors,
"it is ultimately the encounter
with the Bahamian people
that makes people's experi-
ence memorable."
To improve customer ser-
vice, Mr Comito said, the
BHA and the Ministry of
Tourism have "stepped up"
their training initiatives.
"We have considerably
increased investment into the
training of employees. Part of
that is the BHA's human
resources professionals pro-
gramme, which offers ongo-
ing customer service training.
We've already had 400 to 500
trainees for the year," he said.
Mr Comito said it is very
important to look to the future
of the industry by focusing on
and enhancing hospitality
training.
"The Bahamas can't afford
to be a low-end tourist desti-
nation. We have to maintain
our standards," he said.


Coast Guard appeals for

support in trafficking war


* By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE US Coast Guard yes-
terday appealed to the public
to help law enforcement agen-
cies as they attempt to crack
down on human trafficking.
On Wednesday, The Tribune
revealed that the US Border
Patrol is investigating the smug-
gling of 17 illegal immigrants
into the Palm Beach area,
allegedly by Bahamians.
According to US Coast
Guard officials, the captain of
the smuggling vessel in ques-
tion and his two helpers could
be being paid up to $10,000 for
every 'immigrant they smuggled
into the US.
Lieutenant Commander Ter-
ry Johns, press liaison for the
US Coast Guard, said: "The
Coast Guard alone focuses air-
craft and vessels everyday in
and around the. Bahamas to
stop this. Any given day there
are three Coast Guard working,
in the Bahamas to catch these
individuals, either on their way:
in or out of the Bahamas.
"The drug interdiction here


has been very successful
through OPBAT, our aircraft
are multi-task 'who not only are
looking for drug traffickers, but
also migrants as well. Our heli-
copters are out there looking
everyday for the smugglers who
may have moved from smug-
gling drugs, to people," he said.
According to Lt Johns, this
possible switch in routine or for
the smugglers is a sure sign that
efforts to stop the flow of drugs
through the country are suc-
ceeding.
"The Defence Force can
always use more. resources, but
they are using their resources
to the best of their ability, espe-
cially in the central Bahamas.
But it's the public who makes
us aware of these events some-
times, so without them we
would not be as successful as
we are," Lt Johns added.
Allegedly, the majority of the
immigrants currently being
smuggled into Miami are of
Cuban descent, and are being
moved through an operation
that Lt Johns said could have-
been in place for almost 10
years.

Symbols of nation not cherished today


SENATOR CB Moss wants white Bahami-
ans to explain why they have "for so long"
neglected to involve themselves in events of
national importance.
Although New Providence's white commu-
nity is a minority, said Senator Moss, the lack
of its involvement in national events has been
a plague for many years.
"I think it is an historical thing," he told
The Tribune. "They have not been involved
fully over the years and with each passing year
it has become standard."
It was not always like that, so why the
change? Let's take a step back in time.
As a child growing up we lived in a family
and community that understood its duty to
God, king and country. We were taught our
responsibilities to our fellowmen; we were
held accountable for our own actions -blam-
ing our bad behaviour on someone else was
not acceptable. God gave us free will and we
were expected to use it wisely.
Raised by a father who was both politician
and newspaper publisher we were dragged
from one official function to another from an
early age. We sat late at night through long
debates in the House of Assembly, our feet
dangling, from the chair. It would be years
before those feet would touch the floor. Mem-
bers would pat our head-and wonder what the
little girl was doing up so late. "In training,"
,Dad would tell his political friends with a laugh.
We remember waving our small Union Jack
with our class at Clifford Park at the annual
May 24 celebrations of Queen Victoria's birth-
day. We clutched Dad's hand at the laying of
the wreath at the Cenotaph for those who fell
in the First and then the Second World Wars.
We marched with the Girl Guides, saluted the
flag, attended church services, helped sell Pop-
pies on Poppy Day, and attended all the other
functions that we were taught were a part of
our civic duties.
Everyone turned out for these official func-
tions. For example, on Memorial Day when
wreaths were laid at the Cenotaph on the
Library Green, everyone attended, from the
Governor down. The only members of the
Executive and Legislative Councils and House
of Assembly who were not there were those
who were either sick in bed or off the island.
The clergy were there, members of the armed
forces, the police force, the many branches of
government and civic organisations, the town's
leading citizens and the general public. Despite
the heat of the day they were all there, both


black and white. It was their civic duty and,
regardless of their colour, that generation did
their duty. If you held public office or a posi-
tion in the community again regardless of
your colour- it would be unheard of not to be
present.
At the playing of the National Anthem in
those days God Save the King/Queen every-
one stood stiffly to attention until the fading of
the last chord. Even in the movie theatres no
one left the theatre until the end of the
anthem. There was a great deal of respect for
our symbols the anthem and the flag.
And then the "winds of change" started to
blow across these islands. It was decided that
it was time to throw off the "colonial yoke".
The charge was led by the PLP.
Unfortunately the good was swept away
with the bad. The Union Jack was burnt at
Clifford Park. In the movie theatres, the
national anthem was disrespected as Bahami-
ans rushed for the exits before its end.
We shall always remember our late uncle-
the Hon Eugene Dupuch, QC saying that
one had to be very careful how one excited
man's emotions. Unlike a water faucet, emo-
tions could not be turned on and off at will.
Disrespect and boorishness had been
unleashed among the people, and so Qw the-_
t- tie came for the new symbols to repifae't.be
old, honour and respect had vanished.Tl'6d y
the new symbols are not cherished in the same
way as were the old by a previous generation.
Today CB Moss and others like him can say
that the "black of our flag represents the ener-
gy of the people, both the white and the black."
But that was not the way it was in the begin-
ning. When the flag was first presented, it was
explained that the blue was for the water, the
yellow for the sunshine and the black for the
Bahamian people. Letter writers to The Tri-
bune noted that black represented black
Bahamians, but there were also white Bahami-
ans, what had happened to them? they asked.
The debate went on for some time until
some wit we believe it was Norman
Solomon came up with an answer. Why,
he said, the white Bahamian is hidden in the
white thread, which holds them all together. It
was an answer that annoyed many PLP at the
time.
But today people like CB Moss are looking
for that white thread, because, says he, "their
involvement is wanted... and needed."
(* We shall return to this discussion on
Tuesday.)


Race is


longer an





argument


EDITOR, The Tribune
PLEASE allow me space in
your paper to respond to James
Armbrister's letter of July 27
2005.
Dear Mr Armbrister,
I find it amazing that you are
an expert on every white
Bahami-an; Racial comments
come from a two-sided sword
as your letter proves. Have you
access to every white Bahami-
an's records to know how finan-
cially well off they are?
White Bahamians in most
incidences are only counted in
this country when they are
needed for a financial contribu-
tion. Why should they then con-
tribute to this country when
they are given no recognition


for anything? The Bahamas
would like only to remember
any contribution made by a
white Bahamian as negative.
Check the books written (his-
tory or otherwise). The only
thing the Bahamas wants to
remember white Bahamians for
is racism. It's been used for 32
years by the PLP. Have you
attended any political rallies?.
I am sorry that you seem to
be very angry about your posi-
tion in life, but we have now
had 32 years of black leader-
ship, so if a black man does not
succeed he can no longer blame
the white man.


Furthermore, when you
blame the white man for your
lack of success you are resigning
yourself to failure unless the
white man changes it for you.
That is way too much power to
give someone.
Your letter proves that some
blacks such as yourself are still
angry about pre-1967. I will not
endeavour to speak for all black
Bahamians. However, because,
unlike you, I cannot be so arro-
gant to believe that I am in a
position to do such a thing.
Perhaps you would feel bet-
ter if our country's constitution
can be amended to dictate how
and when white Bahamians
should interact and with whom.

EDITOR, The Tribune
EVEN though presently serv-
ing as executive member of the
YMCA Board in Grand
Bahama, I speak not on behalf
of that body, neither are my
reflections indicative of the
thinking of its members. I speak
purely from the level of a citizen
of the Bahamas and resident of
Freeport, GrandBahama. -
Soon after the devastation left
by the two majoh6ihurricanies-last
fall, the Grand Bahama Port
lavishly allocated millions of dol-
lars to bring the oity of Freeport,
and other parts of the island,
back to. a state of normalcy.
In addition Edward St
George and Sir Jack Hayward
gave $1 million of their person-
al money, with the stipulation
for it to be allocated for specific
restorations in the communities
throughout Grand Bahama,
with particular emphasis on the
repairs of seriously damaged
schools, both private and public.
They gave this money on
behalf of no one but themselves
and, thus, there was no reason
to even suspect that- there would
have been any question with
respect to its allocation per their
wishes. They were further satis-
fied by the public acknowledg-
ment of the Prime Minister.
I, therefore, admired greatly
the patience and forbearance of

Sir Jack for waiting so long to
question the appropriate use of
the funds when after 10 months
no accounting had been made
by the government. I further
admire and congratulate him in
his justifiable fury when he final-
ly let loose on those who shame-
fully stymied his attempts to get
some answers.
To opine that funds given for
such a cause-is at-the discretion
of the government to dispense,
or that some $1 million had
been spent on Grand Bahama,
including some of the St.
George/Sir Jack donation, was
no more than a weak and base-
less spin on words in an attempt
to justify the unjustifiable.
I pen these words not to add
further to the ignominy of gov-
ernment in this matter, but to,
actually congratulate it. For, not
withstanding the late attempt
and the motive behind it, the
government, in its second and
more enlightened response, has
invaded the YMCA with a
cohort of government experts
to rectify the infrastructure of
this facility and make it ready
to operate programmes again
for the youth in the communities
on Grand Bahama.
If Sir Jack were mean and vin-
dictive, he could have demand-
ed the full million be returned
and given to the YMCA. It is
indeed sad when our govern-
ment has to be shamed into
doing the appropriate thing so
often.
So'even now many are won-
dering whether this very late
gesture at the "Y" is simply a
show, in light of major threat-
ening hurricanes, to dissuade
those who have already vowed


never to contribute another
dime to government's future
efforts in this regard.
My hope, however, is that the
government has learned its les-
son and will act with trans-
parency and expediency in all
matters related to contributions.
Almost one year later and dead
into another hurricane season,
there is yet to be any public
accounting for monies collect-
ed.
Even banks which deal with
billion dollar accounting can
provide correct accounting to
thousands of individual cus-
tomers on a monthly basis. Why,
then, should it take the govern-
ment, with a multitude of per-
sonnel and resources at hand, a
year to account for a few mil-
lion dollars?
I say that Grand Bahama can
run its own affairs, and this is
probably so for most of the
major islands where local gov-
ernment agencies exist. The
Grand Bahama branch of
NEMA, once given its just and
equitable share of restoration
funds, could have effected total
repairs on Grand Bahama in
five months or less.
Currently, there is a major
amount of work yet to be done
and hurricanes are again threat-
ening. If, God forbid, we have a
repeat of last year and-the
response is comparable, it will
spell only doom.and gloom.
again for thousands on this'
island and others.

Caribbean states disagree



on nuclear transportation


* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
A DISAGREEMENT has
arisen among Association of
Caribbean States (ACS) foreign
affairs ministers at a meeting in
Panama over the issue of
nuclear waste transshipment.
The meeting is being held to
agree a framework for the Dec-
laration of Panama, which is
expected to reassert total oppo-
sition to the transportation of
radioactive and nuclear mate-
rials and toxic wastes through
the Bahamas and wider
Caribbean.
However the 30 ACS coun-
tries, which include the
Bahamas and other Caribbean
and South American counties,
cannot agree on how strict this
opposition should be.
Foreign Affairs Minister Fred
Mitchell is representing the
Bahamas at the meeting.
On several occasions he has


delivered the Bahamas' posi-
tion on the matter.
The Bahamas has asserted
that the Caribbean community
must remain consistent and
become more vigilant regard-
ing its concerns on the trans-
shipment of nuclear waste
through the Caribbean, specifi-
cally in the halls of the United
Nations.
"Not only is the Caribbean
Sea the natural home of the
majority of countries of our
community of states, but it also
the basis of our livelihoods.
We say an unqualified 'no' to
nuclear wastes through the seas
of this region from Bermuda,
through the Bahamas all the
way to Suriname," Mr Mitchell
said during a meeting of the
Council for Foreign and Com-
munity Relations (COFCOR)
in June.
The body is expected to
approve the declaration, which
condemns all forms of terror-


ism, and supporting sovereignty,
judicial equality for all nations,
human rights, non-intervention,
and prohibition of threats or
use of force.
It is also expresses a commit-
ment to preserving the "rich cul-
tural identity of the Caribbean",
and supports the fight against
poverty and social exclusion.
The document expresses con-
cern for the serious threat
AIDS poses to the human race,
and to the social and economic
development of the region.
It promotes international co-
operation and capacity devel-
opment to address natural dis-
asters.
The Declaration also empha-
sises proposals to consolidate
the agreement to establish a
Caribbean Zone of Sustainable
Tourism, which would be the
first in the world.
Mr Mitchell is expected to
return to the Bahamas on Sat-
urday.

Two in custody


'after trying to


cash cheque'


TWO American men have
been taken into police custody
after they allegedly tried to cash
a fraudulent cheque worth $57.2
million dollars at a local bank
on Wednesday.
According to Assistant Com-
missioner of Police with respon-
sibility for crime Reginald Fer-
guson, the men had attempted
to deposit a cheque drawn on a
Nigerian Bank for $57.2 million
while at FirstCaribbean Bank
on Shirley Street.
The officers at the bank


reportedly became suspicious
when the men presented the
cheque and immediately noti-
fied the police.
The men, one believed to be
in his 50s and the other in his
70s, were taken into police cus-
tody.
The Commercial Crime Sec-
tion of the Central Detective
Unit (CDU) is investigating the
incident and a decision has not
yet been made as to whether
the men will be deported,
arraigned or released.

book by Gail Saunders and
Michael Craton, Pompey was a
slave on Lord Rolle's Exuma
plantation.
When Pompey was 32, he and
his fellow slaves were threat-
ened with removal from their
homes on Exuma and trans-
portation to Cat Island, Pom-
pey led a band of 70 defectors in
an escape from the plantation.
The slaves stole a vessel
belonging to Lord Rolle and
sailed for Nassau to plead their
case before Governor
Carmichael Smyth.
"Pompey should be recog-
nised as a hero beyond just a
museum" Mr Curry said. "Pom-
pey displayed courage in his
stance against the entire slave
system today we should emu-
late his courage and heroism."


"Pompey was aware of his
rights and limitations as a slave
and was intelligent enough to
know that Governor Carmichael
had humanitarian inklings."
Unfortunately, the group of
slaves were eventually detained,
tried in the courts and flogged
without the governor's knowl-
edge.
Upon being notified of these
.events, the governor ordered
that the slaves be returned to
Exuma. However the group
refused to work and the soldiers
had to be called in to deal with
the standoff.
Pompey was eventually cap-
tured and publicly punished
with 39 lashes.
Mr Curry said: "Pompey
demonstrated an unwillingness
to be moved, and even more,


moved illegally. He is a real
hero as he took the strikes for
other people he was beaten
as an example for other slaves.
"This revolt led by Pompey
had broader implications for
slavery in the Bahamas and the
wider Caribbean. It showed
that slaves wanted to be free
and run against the traditional
view of the historiography of
abolition as there was a ten-
dency in the past to view aboli-
tion as top-down the slaves
themselves played a pivotal
role."
Mr Curry's comments come
after recently announced
changes to the images appear-
ing on Bahamian currency have
sparked debate about what
qualifies a historical Bahamian
as a national figure.

Junkanoo event brings


boost to Grand Bahama


* By KRYSTEL ROLLE
THE highly publicised "Feel
the Rush" junkanoo event
scheduled for Grand Bahama
this weekend is expected bring a
much needed economic boost
to the Bahamas' second city.
Freeport is expected to host
at least 20,000 locals and tourists
during the August Monday
weekend.
The event'is projected to
bring some much needed relief
to the local economy, after the
island was devastated by hurri-
canes Frances and Jeanne last
year.
Minister of Tourism Obie
Wilchcombe said he hopes it


will provide an opportunity for
local vendors and salespersons
to make some money. "That's
the point of this event," he said,
"to bring in some revenue to
the island."
"I believe that this will cre-
ate the much needed inspira-
tion and excitement to the locals
and hopefully they will be suc-
cessful. I want them to have the
same opportunity as the people
in Nassau have."
The minister continued:
"The event seems.as if it will be
well received, we expect thou-
sands of Bahamians to attend.
I believe the vendors will
receive tremendous dividends.
This is a wonderful opportuni-


ty for Grand Bahamians."
The junkanoo "battle" is
scheduled to kick off at 8.00pm
Sunday night, in downtown
Freeport.
Nassau junkanoo groups the
Saxons, Roots and the Valley
Boys will be participating along
with groups from Grand
Bahama.
The groups will be compet-
ing for cash prizes.

Resident leads



lit ter campaign


* By KRISTINA McNEIL
A ()CONCERNED citizen is,
taking matters into her own
hands in an effort to reduce the
amount of trash and debris left
on eastern New Providence
beaches.
l)ion Prtlt ot Fox Hill has
been working for nearly two
weeks Io rounkd up volunteers
to help clcan up and rejuvenate
the Yamacraw beaches.
"I'm doing this for the people
in the area. We use the beach,.
it's our beach. but it looks real-
Iv bad." said Ms Pratt.


"What we really need are
trucks and manpower," she con-
tinued. "There are old water
tanks, mattresses and other
heavy things. People have been
dumping there for years and
they continue to do it.
"People need to realise that
when you come to the beach
you should have your garbage
bag and take your trash with
you," she said.
"We need to stop depending
on other people to clean up our
mess."
While garbage bins on the
beaches would greatly help the


effort, it would also require the
co-operation of garbage truck
operators, who would have to go
to the beaches to collect them.
The Nature Conservancy and
the Coastal Awareness Group
are two organisations Ms Pratt
is trying to work with in an
effort to expand her project and
increase local awareness.
Reaching out to other resi-
dents in the area, Ms Pratt
encouraged them to join the
clean-up effort by contributing
manpower or resources.

Fans disappointed as


singer fails to show


a FANTASIA (lances with Friends 4 Life performer Dwayne at Solomon's Mines on Wednesday
night.


A SMALL crowd eagerly
awaiting the arrival of the 2004
American Idol and platinum
recording artist Fantasia Barri-
no were sorely disappointed
when the singer failed to show
up for a scheduled autograph
session.
The session was scheduled
vesterdai tflernoon by BTC,
which is one of Fantasia's local
sponsors.
The 20-year-old singer, who is
scheduled to perform at the
Free Yourself concert at the
Wyndhami Nassau Resort
tonight, did not make the
appearance at BTC's Cyber
World at lie Mall at Marathon
because she was reportedly in
need of rest.
After waiting for more than
an hour. disgruntled and disap-
pointed tans walked away.


According to the events pro-
moter, Kathy Ingraham, the
singer decided that she needed
to rest for tonight's concert.
"She got here on Wednesday
directly from Montego Bay
Jamaica, she did a press confer-
ence Wednesday night, she met
with the governor general
Thursday morning and so now
she feels as though she needs
to rest to be at her best for the
concert," Ms Ingraham said.
"This is her first time in the
Caribbean and she is very excit-
ed to be here," she added.
The North Carolina native
and single mother won the
American Idol talent search
competition in 2004 performing
the single I Believe and was giv-
en a recording contract with
Clive Davis' J Records label.
Her full length debut album


entitled Free Your Self was
released in November 2004.

The Valley of


No Return

By John Tomerlin
Illustrated by Michael Lacapa


H AVASU CANYON, an Arizona branch of the
Grand Canyon, is famed for its natural beauty.
However, it is less well-known that floods occasionally
rampage through the valley on their way to the Colorado
River.
Two young people set out one afternoon in the autumn
of 1909 to visit "Dead Man's Falls," north of the Supai Vil-
lage. A prank played on them by a young member of the
Havasupais Indian tribe becomes potentially lethal when a
flash flood cuts off their return.
For the next several days the pair must endure cold and
hunger while attempting to make their way to safety; the
situation grows yet more deadly when they discover they
are being stalked by a hungry mountain lion.
This is a story of two young people from diverse back-
grounds one, the son of a mining engineer, the other, a
daughter of the tribal chief whose people are threatened
with exile from their ancestral land, and of the lessons
learned as they struggle for survival.

Bahamians losing battle of the bulge
Baahmkeahriitutin ll9 .


* By DANIELLE STUBBS
Tribune-Staff Reporter.-
DOZENS of Bahamians
revealed yesterday that work is
doing a job on their waistline.
With cases of obesity on the
increase, The Tribune conduct-
ed an investigation yesterday
that confirmed many Bahami-
ans are gaining weight as a
result of poor eating habits on
the job.
Some have even admitted to
feelings of "guilt and depres-
sion" that have led to their
becoming comfortable with
being overweight.
Several working class
Bahamians claimed that after
allowing themselves to gain so
much weight, losing the pounds
is no longer considered a
healthy option, but instead an
arduous task.


Anastacia Culmer, a legal
---secretary at a local law firm
credited her additional 10
pounds over the last six months
to "never having a chance to
eat a solid meal and constant
snacking throughout the day."
"When you are working in
the legal profession, everything
is centered around the clients.
Even if you set a specific time to
sit down and have a balanced
meal, things can come up and
throw your plans out of whack."
In a working week, Ms Cul--
mer said she would be "extreme-.
ly fortunate to have a decent
lunch at least once or twice."
Maria Paul, a graphic artist
for the past ten years, said she
has been overweight and dieting
for most of her life. She said the
fact that she is juggling an
unpredictable job in addition to
two young children and a hus-


band makes her situation all the
more difficult.

Eatery

-An employee of a local fast
food eatery told The Tribune.
yesterday that she has gained
about 30 pounds;since starting
her job less than two years ago.
:However, she' says her
predicament is different from
the regular 9 to 5 office worker.
."I work with food. I see it
constantly, so I am always
tempted to eat, and the same
thing goes for my co-workers.
Everyone I work with com-
plains about their weight, but
its hard;to get back on track
when ithe food is always there,"
she said... ,

The technical and vocation-
al teacher training programme
first began in 2001 and is sched-
uled to end in September,
although the Ministry of Edu-
cation is planning to start anoth-
er one next year.
Director of Education Iris
Pinder described the course as
"almost a complete success".
A total of 28 people started
the course, which was launched
to increase the number of
Bahamian-trained technical and
vocational teachers
Speaking at a lunch meeting
with the president of the Com-
monwealth of Learning (COL)
and Minister of Education
Alfred Sears, Mrs Pinder said:
"In the 1990s many Caribbean
governments were looking at
the diversification of economies_
and looking to education to sup-
ply the skills needed for the
economy," said Mrs Pinder.

and vocational teachers did not

workplace has definitely become
the principal site for "battling
the bulge" in recent years.
As a certified sports specific
therapist, Mr Dean said his
years of experience has taught
him how "hard it is to eat
healthy and exercise regularly
as a working person."
But despite all of this, Mr


Dean said a hectic schedule and
minimal nutritious fast food
options should never carry the
full blame for the thousands of
overweight Bahamians.
"The fact of the matter is,
Bahamians are just too lazy.
Everyone says 'I don't have
time to do this' and 'I don't
have time to do that', but all it
really boils down to is a little


time management," he said.
In addition to managing their
time, Mr Dean said, ."Bahami-
ans have to first become edu-
cated about obesity and the
food choices they make if they
intend to curb this trend. Get
into the mindframe of creating
balance in your daily life, and
plan to invest in your future by
making healthy choices."

said. "Therefore the focus was

Emile, Mack's son, was
reported to have heard
about his father's death in a

"Mack asked me to take a

the last and that we could be

it. was our last picture

Mark said he and Mack
had just decided to build a

although he was still in office.
The Tribune made several attempts to contact

The matter is alleged to have
taken place on Tuesday when
he was taken to the Princess
Margaret Hospital, said Mr
Wilchcombe.
The incident was reported to
the Department of Immigration
on Wednesday.
Mr Wilchcombe told The
Tribune that the refugee had
escaped from the centre on July
2, and had surrendered on July
15.
A full investigation, which
will be conducted by the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, has been
ordered.
Three defence force officers
have been removed from the
detention centre due to the alle-
gation and subsequent
investigation, said Mr Wilch-
combe.
"We will not further com-
ment until such time when the
Royal Bahamas Police Force
has concluded their investiga-
tion, because it is a very seri-
ous matter," he said.

Children given




warning about




life in prison


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
TWENTY-ONE children
who were taken on a tour of
Her Majesty's Prison are today
resolved to never end up behind
bars in the Bahamas.
They experienced first hand
what the almost unbearable
heat in prison is like, and heard
the stories of prisoners of how
they got there.
The children, 20 boys and one
girl, are participating in the
Farm Road Urban Renewal
Project's summer youth camp
at East St Gospel Chapel.
They were taken around the
Fox Hill facility by Sgts Samuel
Duvalier and George Bodie.
St Duvalier told the children
that criminal behaviour can
begin in simple: ways: "If you
don't want to listen to your
teachers, parents or elders,
you're on your way here. That's
how it starts. There are laws
that govern this.lanld padyou
must abkidenbytei :
"The first thing that you lose
when you come here is your dig-
nity. So try to concentrate and
stay in school. Young women,
are advancing far ahead in this
country, becausehey. take.their
education seriously. Young men
in this country lack discipline."


The first prisoner the children
talked to gave the children a
real wake-up call.
Tina Pinder spoke to the chil-
dren from her top bunk in the
female prison. She's petite and
pretty, with hier hair immacu-
lately kept. Listening to her
speak, you would never believe
she's a 21 year-old murder con-
vict who has been at HMP since
she was 16.
"I was doing everything in the
book. I was selling drugs on the
blocks when they picked me
up. Anything you do, the man
could pick you up," she said.
"I don't like being away from
my family, and this is no place
to be. It's hot, you only have
ZNS to watch when they cut
the TV on. You have to do
what you are told here. When
your moms tell you to wash the
dishes you don't want to do it.
But here, you do as you are
told. No one is above the law.
You can go to jail as young as
11 and 12. So you have to know
now that for every wrong you
do, there's a consequence. If
you don't make it here, you'll
make it to the grave."
Next, the children were taken
to the tailor shop, where Stephen
Edgecombe shared his story,
"I am spending a 15 year sen-
tence for manslaughter. For


me, it's when someone run you
hot, and you pick up a piece of
wood and lick them twice, but
you didn't mean to kill them.
Kids, you don' t want to come
here. I've made friends here,
but they all come and go. I
have a long time to spend here.
One good thing about me being
here is that I accepted Christ
and now I can lead a more pur-
poseful life."

Warning

As the big gate slammed
when the children entered max-
imum security, the children
jumped and were apprehensive
about entering the facility. By
that point in the tour, the kids
were drenched before even
entering the building.
As they headed into the build-
ing, an inmate shouted: "You
came here for a visit; don't come
back here. Get your education
and stay on the road."
The freshly painted walls and
newly-installed utility fans did
little to wipe away a feeling of
depression that overwhelms you

Concerns on


investn


ent


'conditions'


,E By YOLANDA
DELEVEAUX
Senior Business
Reporter
Industry stakeholders
yesterday com-
plained to The Tri-
bune that the Invest-
ments Board had
created new regulations for
second home applicants that
are inconsistent with the spir-
it of the International Per-
sons Landholding Act, 1993..
The Tribune was told that
a new practice being used by
the Investment Board is that
they can impose conditions
on permits. Some attorneys
were said to have received a
number of approvals that
included stipulated condi-
tions, such as the applicant
must build the facility in two
years. The attachment of
conditions to an approved
application has become Gov-
ernment policy.
What is considered by
some an even greater prob-
lem is that there are no
* penalties expressed under the
Act for failing to satisfy the
conditions.
"What happens when'per-.
sons fail to comply with the
conditions of the permit?
Will it result in the permit
being invalidated, and if they
fail in the first instance, can
they reapply, although the
Investment Board will like-
ly not issue a new permit?"
one source asked.
"Frankly what I think, is
[Allyson Maynard-Gibson,
minister of financial services
and investments] has revert-
ed to the repealed Immov-
able Property Act (Acquisi-
tion by Foreign Persons) Act


1981, rather than have the
Government, House of Par-
liament, determine the
statutes under which permits
and Certificates of Registra-
tion can be granted."
In his opinion it seemed
the "minister herself is
changing the law without
going to Government." He
believed'she had made "an
administrative change with-
out the actual passing of a
law."
Responding to these con-
cerns, Mrs Maynard-Gibson
yesterday made it clear that
her ministry did not approve
anything, but served to
process the applications and
carry the matters to the
Investment Board. Her min-
istry also conveyed the deci-
sion of the Board to the
applicant..
Forum
"We try to keep the lines
of communication open. We
had a meeting with the Bar
Council last month, and we
often meet with the Real
Estate Association. If they
have concerns about the way
we operate, if they have any
concerns, it can be raised in
this forum. They have never
voiced these concerns, but
they should raise them so
these matters can be
addressed," she said.
The minister declined to
comment on how the Invest-
ment Board applies the legal
statutes to individual appli-
cations, saying instead that
legal questions should be
raised with the Attorney
General's Office because the
Government acts on its
advice.


Meanwhile, speaking with
The Tribune on condition of
anonymity, an attorney with
a leading law firm said the
much-publicised turnaround
time of 30 days for applica-
tions to be reviewed and
clients to be informed of a
decision was not being
adhered to.
It was suggested that the
Investments Board had cre-
ated regulatory requirements
for applicants to provide doc-
uments similar to those
required under the repealed
Act. If any items were miss-
ing, the application may not
be dealt with during the 30-
day period.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson has
said on a number of occa-
sions that the Board will not
review incomplete applica-
tions. However, it was noted
that the Minister indicated at
the time the regulations were
introduced that if any items
were not easily available,
attorneys could apply to have
the Investment Board waive
them.
Another issue that needs
to be reviewed, sources said,
was the handling of clients
when they are looking to pur-
chase a single family.
dwelling. It was said that
approvals for such applica-
tions and the granting of a
Certificate of Registration
should be a matter of course
once the initial requirements
are met..
The Investments Board,
however, required applicants
to provide similar documents
needed for a permit, includ-
ing character references,

Questions over new




passport contract


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
QUESTIONS have been
raised about whether the
Bahamas needs to have
machine-readable passports
and other identification docu-
ments that require the bearer's
fingerprints to be included on
an embedded electronic chip,
with The Tribune having been
told this goes beyond current
international guidelines and
will be an expensive use of tax-
payers' money.
Parties interested in winning
the contract to supply the soft-


ware and technology to auto-
mate the issuance of Bahamian
passports and visas have until
August 8 to submit bids, but
concerns have been raised
about whether fingerprints are
needed.
Identity
The International Civil Avi-
ation Organisation's (ICAO)
"harmonised blueprint" for
integrating biometric identity
information onto machine-
readable passports, the very
exercise the Bahamas is now
engaged in, says the face is the


"preferred biometric" for con-
firming the holder's identity by
machine.
This immediately questions
why the planned new Bahami-
an passports will require the
holder's fingerprints to be bio-
metrically included in the elec-
tronic chip, with several sources
suggesting that this nation's
laws will have to be changed if
this is the Government's inten-
tion.
The Labour laws currently
prevent companies from fin-

ABACO Markets yesterday
unveiled a $410,000 operating
loss for its fiscal 2006 first quar-
ter, blaming "theft-related"
losses and product loss and
damage for "undermining bot-
tom line results", with sales
down $3.26 million on the same
period in 2004.
Acknowledging that sales
were "below expectations", the
BISX-listed retail conglomer-
ate admitted that despite esti-
mates issued previously that
annual sales for the year to Jan-
uary 31, 2006, would be down
by $15 million as a result of
hurricane damage to its Grand
Bahama operations, it had
"expected to be closer to a
breakeven position" in the first
quarter.
However, the bad news in
the three months to April 30,
2005, was counterbalanced
somewhat by an extra two-year
extension of its credit facilities

Local government


structure may hurt


Abaco's economy


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
ABACO'S local government
structure could damage the
island's economy, the Govern-
mnent has been warned, because
it is creating inefficiency in deal-
ing with the needs of foreign
property owners who are key
income generators.
In a letter written to V Alfred
Gray, the minister with respon-
sibility for local government,
Walter Sweeting, chief council-
lor for Hope Town District
Council, said there could be "a
devastating effect upon the


income of our local Bahamians"
if foreign property owners did
not receive the service efficien-
cy and respect they deserved.
He pointed out that under
Hope Town's mandate as a
Schedule Two District based on
its Bahamian population num-
bers, the councillors could not
appoint Boards such as Town
Planning, Port Authority and
Licensing, leaving "oversight
and responsibility" for these
areas squarely on the shoulders
of the seven elected councillors.

THE ASE Corporation is still hopeful that the
Government will approve its $650 million project
to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal
and pipeline on Ocean Cay ,with officials saying
outside of Florida Power & Light (FPL), which
services a little more than half the state's demand,
the energy company is in talks with other poten-
tial customers that make up the remaining market
share.
In an interview with The Tribune, Robyn
Pence, who heads the communications depart-
ment at AES, said the company sees that there is
a huge energy need in Florida and will pursue oth-
er customers, with FPL saying earlier this year it


was no longer looking for a partner to provide it
with LNG fuel.
Meanwhile, it was previously suggested that
the Government could receive as much as $38
million per year in throughput revenue if the
AES Corporation was to expand its Ocean Cay
liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal "as expect-
ed" to meet soaring energy demand in Florida, a
leading Bahamian economic analyst said.
Pipeline
AES officials have also said that its regasifica-
tion terminal and pipeline would create a 5-8 per
cent increase in Bimini's population to accom-
modate construction and permanent workers if
the project received government approval.

financial references, social
security numbers, a police
record and a site plan, which
in some instances is not avail-
able.
A Certificate of Registration
should be issued to persons as
long as the applicant satisfies
the International Persons
Landholding Act.
Another source closely
involved in real estate transac-
tions involving foreigners, said
that generally some improve-
ments have been seen. Of late,
the Investments Board has
improved its response time,
with some applications being
addressed within the promised
30-day period and others tak-
ing six months. "There's no
rhyme or reason to it," the
source said.
It was noted that there were
many occasions where applica-
tions were submitted without
the full information required,
and some attorneys still did not
realise that the approvals
process will not even begin.
without all the information
required present.
"We still have concerns.
- We're never able to discover
the reason why an application


is rejected. Even if you request
an explanation, there is no
mechanism in place where they
have to give it to you. For a
client it is a bit distressing
because they don't know," the
source said.
Applicants can appeal a
rejection, and the Board was
said to have at times reversed
its decision, but the concern is
that the appeal is made in the
dark. Attorneys simply sub-
mit a lot more information in
support of the applicant's char-
acter and the investment pro-
ject.
Discretion
The Investment Board is
empowered by the Interna-
tional Persons Landholding
Act to deny an application at
their discretion, and when con-
tacted for comment, Mrs May-
nard-Gibson said she doubted
the policy would change.
She said, however, that the
matter may be put forward
when the Government meets
with the private sector for con-
sultation to talk about its land
policy.
A recent trend some attor-


neys have noted is that the
Investments Board is issuing
deferrals, telling applicants that
they will get a reply within 30
days once the application is
completed.
While the current state of
affairs faced by persons dealing
with the Investment Board has
improved considerable, the 30-
day turn around continues to
be a sore subject, with' real
estate officials and attorneys
saying that responses are only
"trickling in".
"I don't think the Board's
met in quite some time, maybe
a month. They're very tight-
lipped about when they do and
don't meet. While Cabinet
meets every week, they wear
many hats and don't always sit
as the Investment Board or
National Economic Council.
It's the way its been for the last
three years, and it needs
improvement," one source said.
"The people are great;
they're overworked. I under-
stand that there is a lot to con-
sider, but I really think the
answer is for the board to del-
egate some of this administra-
tive responsibility."

gerprinting employees, and fingerprints
are only currently mandatory for criminal
cases.
However, the Request for Proposal
(RFP) for the 'Bahamas Visa, Passport
and Control System Requirements' says:
"Fingerprints and facial images of the pass-
port holders shall be a mandatory require-
ment for verification and immigration con-
trol. The two thumbprints and front of
face are the minimum requirement for
practical biometric use."
The tender says this is being done to
conform with ICAO standards, but these
are still evolving and not set in stone. The
US, European countries, Australia and
New Zealand are all using the face as the
prime means of identification, rather than
fingerprints.
Issued
The RFP was issued by the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, but Fred Mitchell, the
minister, was yesterday attending a con-
ference in Panama, while Dr Patricia
Rodgers, the permanent secretary, was
said to be out of office when The Tribune
called seeking comment.
Apart from Bahamian passports, the
bearer's fingerprints also will be required
for planned machine-readable visas and
work permits, the tender reveals.

cane insurance claims that

Commenting on the theft-
related and product damage
issues, David Thurlow, Abaco
Markets president, said: "In
order to address these issues,
we have changed hiring prac-
tices, increased resources for
associate training and
addressed warehouse, logistics
and security issues."
Operational issues at
Solomon's SuperCentre in Nas-
sau had impacted heavily on
first quarter sales and the over-
all results, and Mr Thurlow
said: "Solomon's SuperCentre
now accounts for more than 25
pr &cnt of our sales. making

to legal documented workers," it said. "The
work permit may also be used as a travel
document and therefore must include bio-
metrics of the work permit holder, which
helps eliminate several kinds of passport
and work permit fraud and prevents ter-
rorists and others ineligible from entering
the Bahamas.
Permit
"The machine-readable work permit
must help improve border security. Immi-
gration officers must be able to scan infor-
mation directly from the work permit, in
order to speed up the clearance process
for persons entering the Bahamas using a
work permit."
Other documents that will need bio-
metrics are permanent residence certifi-
cates, citizenship certificates, resident
spouse certificates and permit to reside
certificates.
Meanwhile, sources have expressed con-
cerns to The Tribune that the RFP docu-
ment binds the successful bidder into using
proprietary technology from certain com-
panies.
De La Rue, the UK company which cur-
rently supplies the Bahamian passport
booklets, is specifically mentioned in the
tender as the supplier of visa paper, with
the technology for the chip likely to come


rebuilding efforts.
"Unfortunately, we had a
series of operational issues that
required us to restructure our
team, systems and controls at
our flagship store, along with
our undertaking a major reset
and introducing new products
and expanding our private
label."
There was better news on the
insurance settlement for prop-
erty damage and business inter-
ruption resulting from Sep-
tember 2004's hurricanes. Aba-
co Markets received a net $7
million, after deductibles,
which exceeded earlier esti-
mates of $5 million.
Retailer
The retailer also announced
that it had sold the Sawyer's
Market building in Abaco for
proceeds "which approximate


its carrying value". Although
the sale of the Dunkin' Donuts
franchise had not been com-
pleted, Mr Thurlow said it was
still expected to close upon the
completion of "extended due
diligence" being carried out by
the franchisor, Dunkin' Donuts
International.
Expected
"Though we are not as far
along as expected, we are
pleased to see good indicators
from our Turks market and
from our Freeport market, and
our Solomon's stores in Abaco
continue to grow," said Mr
Thurlow.
"Early indications for the
second quarter show a marked
increase in sales and we expect
this to continue in the upcom-
ing quarters for improved
results."


from a Malaysian company called IRIS.
IRIS already has experience in e-pass-
port projects, albeit for countries such as
Syria and Myanmar, both widely-renowned
for being repressive regimes.
And the ICAO guidelines on machine-
readable passports state that the "most
effective" way of preventing the illegal
issue of stolen blank travel documents is to
"centralise the issuing process" to guard
against internal theft of materials.
Informed sources have told The Tribune
that the safety and security of the pass-
port issuing process should be the key con-
cern for the Bahamas, but the RFP appears
to take a different and seemingly expen-
sive turn away from the ICAO guide-
lines.
Located
The RFP said: "The main issuing site is
the Passport Section in the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs in Nassau. Additional issu-
ing sites are located at the Consular Divi-
sion in Nassau, in Freeport and on 17 Fam-
ily Islands. There are also issuing sites at
each of the seven overseas missions locat-
ed in Canada, Haiti, Hong Kong, the UK
and the US." The Government hopes to
begin contract negotiations for the passport
and visa automation contract on October 6,
with the new management system imple-
mented by June 1, 2006.


Mr Thurlow said Abaco
Markets was now working to
complete projects underway to
focus its team on day-to-day
operations and increase, same
store sales.
The outstanding projects
nearing completion are the
Treasure Cay renovation, the
conversion of Abaco Whole-
sale to the Cost Right model,
the upgrade of freezers and
warehouse space in the Nassau
locations and the replacement
of the roof at Solomon's
Freeport.
Extension
Mr Thurlow added that the
extra two-year extension to its
credit facilities with Royal
Bank of Canada had givert
Abaco Markets' management
some financial flexibility.

The $75 million Windermere Island development includes
the development of a hotel and residential community. Some
$2 million was spent last year and, at the time, some 46
Bahamians had been hired for construction positions.
At a cost of $40 million, the Governor's Harbour project
is being developed on the site of the former Club Med resort
It is expected to involve the renovation and expansion of the
former Club Med facilities and the development of a marina
and residential community.
The developer also purchased property in the vicinity of
Governor's Harbour to be used for the development of a 10-
lot second home community and office facilities for the
resort.
The Rum Cay development, estimated to be worth some
$90 million, had already begun some work, but a number of
applications needed to be approved for further construc-

In an earlier statement, Mrs Maynard-Gibson said of the
five-star hotel proposed for Rum Cay: "It is expected to

Yet all the councillors were holding down
full-time jobs of their own, and found it
difficult to make time for all their respon-
sibilities, Mr Sweeting said.
In his letter to Mr Gray, he wrote: "The
townships of Hope Town, Man-O-War and
Great Guana Cay are the fastest growing
communities in the country and they are
unique in their population demographics.
They may be considered small with regard
to the number of Bahamians, but in all
three cases there are large numbers of prop-
erty owners."

Economy

The April 28 letter continued: "It has
been said that they are non-Bahamians and
therefore don't count. We must face the
fact that they do count and their dollars
are the primary fuel for the economy of
these cays.
"Dealing with these foreign property


owners and their interaction with the native
Bahamian population presents a number
of challenges which don't occur to such a
degree throughout most of the rest of the
country.
"This foreign segment of our population
must be treated with respect and efficient-
ly in a timely manner. If we do not recognise
the importance of these people it will have
a devastating effect upon the income of our
local Bahamians who we are elected to rep-
resent."
Mr Sweeting said that after six years of
functioning as its own District, it appeared
that the current Hope Town council struc-
ture "is simply not working".
He added: "To be handled properly, each
Township must have their own Board or
Council to deal with their specific chal-
lenges. The volume of work that is con-
fronting the current District Council is over-
whelming. It is simply too much to be han-
dled by a seven-member Council that is

spread out over three islands."
Mr Sweeting suggested three possible
solutions: reverting to the pre-1999 structure
that would see a five-member Town Com-
mittee on each cay work under the Cen-
tral Abaco District; allow the Hope Town
District Council to elect a Town Committee
for each township to deal with each cay's
issues; and allow each township to become
a district and deal with its own issues.

Controversial

And in a reference to the controversial
$175 million Baker's Bay Golf & Ocean
Club development, Mr Sweeting wrote:
"With the particularly great growth that
has and is blessing Great Guana Cay, there
are a number of issues, some quite contro-
versial, that are unique to this island..........
The time has come for Great Guana Cay to
reach maturity and be allowed to have its
own body to handle its challenges."

* PEDAL POWER: Taureano 'Reno' Johnson (left bike) and Levard Stuart (right bike) pose above with the delegation heading to the Commonwealth Boxing Championships next month.
Looking on are head coach Andre Seymour, federation president Wellington Miller, team manager George Turner and assistant coach Quincy 'Thrill-A-Minute' Pratt.





Three man team heads





for Commonwealth event


E By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
TAUREANO 'Reno' John-
son, Levard Studrt and James
McKenzie will carry the
Bahamas flag this time around
at the Commonwealth Boxing
Championships.
The trio will leave town on
August 13 for the champi-
onships, scheduled for August
14-21 in Scotland, United
Kingdom.
They will travel with man-
ager George Turner, head
coach Andre Seymour, assis-
tant coach Quincy 'Thrill-A-
Minute' Pratt and team doc-

for championships


tor, Dr. Francis Saunders.
"We know that this is a very
good team that we have put
together," said Wellington
Miller, the president of the
Amateur Boxing Association
of the Bahamas, who will head
the delegation to Scotland.
"They have been training
very hard for the past couple


of weeks and according to the
coaches, they are in top shape
and they are ready to go."
At a press conference at
Better Bodies Gynmasium
where the boxers have been
doing their strength and con-
ditioning training, Seymour
said he's been quite impressed
with what he's seen.


"The last Commonwealth
Championships, we went
through the same weight and
technical training," said Sey-
mour, who has worked with
Carlos Reno in the prepara-
tion of the boxers' gym work-
out. "We're doing the same
thing.
"It's important that weight
training is a part of your train-
ing in amateur boxing because
you're only going two minutes
a round (for four rounds), so
your body must be in top
shape and that is where the
strength training comes in."
With just about two weeks
left before they leave for Scot-


Competition is tight




among softball juniors


N By RENALDO DORSETT
Junior Sports Reporter
THE newly implemented New
Providence Softball Association
Juniors division continues to thrill
fans during this season.
Despite having just three teams in
the division; the Mucka Mucks Stars,
A & B Starters, and Grant's Town
Pacers, the division plays an exciting
brand of softball which often results
in games decided by one or two
runs.
On Tuesday, the Mucka Mucks
Stars and the A&B Starters played a
double header at the Churchill Ten-
er Knowles Stadium.
The Starters captured game one
with a late surge, sneaking out 5-4
winners.
Natasha Green was the winning
pitcher while Krystal Bodie was sad-
dled with the loss.
The Stars got off to a quick start,
scoring four runs in the first inning,


however that was all the offence
they could muster.
Green would hold them scoreless
and would allow just one hit for the
remainder of the game.
The Starters run total was almost
an exact opposite of the Stars.
They scored one run in the sec-
ond and put together a four run
third inning to pull ahead for the
win.

Run
Offensively for the Starters, Kris-
sy Ingraham went 2-2 with two RBIs
and one run, while Alex Taylor and
Terez Jones also went 2-2, with one
run each.
For the Stars, Krystal Bodie went
1-2 with a one run, and two RBI,
including a home run. Tia Rolle
went 1-2 with one RBI.
In game two, Mucka Mucks
rebounded to split the double head-
er with a 6-4 win.
The roles were reversed for game
two as Krystal Bodie got the win


while Natahsa Green was tagged
with the loss.,
The Stars produced a balanced
scoring attack, scoring two runs in
each inning.
Despite committing four errors in
the top of the fourth inning and
allowing the Starters back into the
game, the Stars were able to hang
on.
For the Stars, Krystal Bodie went
2-2, with another home run and two
RBI, Raivonne Sawyer went 1-2
with two RBI and Shirley Johnson
was,1-2 with one run and one RBI.
For the losing Starters, Terez
Jones was scored a run with one'
RBI and Natasha Green was 1-2
with one run. i

land, Seymour spoke about
the training involved.
"We're just concentrating
on weight training with a lot of
sparring," he stressed. "That is
why we have Quincy travel-
ling as a coach because he
brings a lot of experience in
that area."
In expressing his gratitude
to the federation and to Sey-
mour for giving him the
opportunity to travel with the
team, Pratt said he's antici-
pating another great perfor-
mance.
"Amateur boxing has
changed," said Pratt, who
fought for a number of years
as an amateur before he
turned pro back in the 1990s.
"But these guys are all good
fighters and they are in great
shape. I know Reno is very
serious about the sport and he
will continue to do well.
Levard and James, both are
both fighters, so I expect all
of them to do very well."

Silver
At the last championships,
Johnson led a two-man team
with a silver medal perfor-
mance. The other boxer on
the team then was Keishno
Major.
This year, Johnson will be
attempting to go for the gold
medal in the welterweight
division. McKenzie will join
him in the heavyweight divi-
sion and Stuart will compete
in the lightweight division.
"We're taking three of our
boxers, who recently came
back from the CABA Cham-
' pionships with the title, so
We're looking forward to
being very successful this
year," Miller added.
"Reno is a very advanced
competitor, who strives on
competition, Levard has
proven to be a very smart box-
er, who can adjust to the new
style and James McKenzie is
getting much more aggressive,
so we're looking forward to
some great things from all of
them."
Turner, who is the secretary
of the federation, said this is


the continued progress
towards their trek to the 2008
Olympic Games in Beijing,
China.
"We have devised a plan
called the road to Olympic
2008 and we hope that the
plan will be successful as it
was a couple months ago at
the CABA Championships."

MIAMI HERALD SPORTS


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports
Reporter
TAUREANO 'Reno'
Johnson wants the gold
when he return to the
Commonwealth Boxing
Championships next
month. But Levard Stuart
just wants to make his
presence felt as the "new
kid on the block."
The duo will be a part of
a three-man team that
include James McKenzie,
which will head to Scot-
land on August 12. The
championships will run
from August 13-21.
"Right now, I'm certain
that I will get the gold
medal," Johnson insisted.
"I've been training
extremely hard. I haven't
been able to return to
Cuba for reasons beyond
my control.
"But, like every great
athlete, you have to be
able to make the adjust-
ments to your situation. I
think I have adjusted well
to it."
The 5-foot-9 Johnson,
who has a 155-35 win-loss
record, admits that there's
a lot of pressure on him
because he's expected to
be successful.
"It's extremely difficult,
but there comes a time
when you have to block
out everything," Johnson
reflected. "The focus
maybe on me, but I'm
going to go out there, do
my best and give it my all.
The nation can expect the
best from Taureano."
Even though Keishno
Major, his travelling part-
ner at the last champi-
onships in Malaysia, didn't
make it this year, Johnson
still feel that the federation
has assembled a solid
three-man team.

Remarkable
"I though Keishno did a
remarkable job against a
seasoned competitor; but
unfortunately, he didn't
get a medal," said the 11-
year amateur veteran
Johnson.
"This year, the federa-
tion put together a solid
team. This year, I think we
have a real good chance of
winning three gold
medals."
As for Stuart, Johnson
said he may lack power
and stamina, but he makes
up for his efficiencies with
his ringmanship.
Stuart, who joined the
national team in April
when the Bahamas won *
the Caribbean Amateur
Boxing Association's title
in Aruba in April, said he's
just as excited as Johnson.
"I expect to do my best
and hopefully come out
with the gold," he said.
"That's all I could do."
The resident of Chicago,
who has a 45-10 record, is
currently training in Cuba
with Johnson. He feels that
his preparation there will
give him the edge in Scot-
land.
"I know that the compe-
tition will be very high, but
I hope that my experience
in boxing will help me pull'
through the tournament,"
Stuart stated.
Stuart, 18, said the feder-
ation has certainly put
together an elite team and
he envisions that they will
have a good chance of per-
forming very well.
During his four-year
career, the 5-foot-6 Stuart
has fought in the junior
Golden Gloves tourna-
ment in the United States
as well as the Junior
Olympics.
As a right-hander, Stuart
said he's confident that he
can eventually compete at
the Olympics and hopeful-
ly win a medal before he
turns pro.

A TOTAL of 18 athletes, nine
men and nine women, will make
Up the team heading to Helsinki,
Finland at the weekend for the
2005 World Championships.
"It's a very experienced
team," was how manager Ralph
McKinney summed up the
squad, which will leave on Sun-
day.
"The nucleus on the team is
actually returning from the
Olympic team last year. It's
probably the best team we could
have selected, with the excep-
tion of Osbourne Moxey."
Moxey, a finalist in the
Olympic Games last year in
Athens, Greece, was scheduled
to travel to Europe to compete
in a few meets after the Coli-
nalmperial Senior Central
American and Caribbean Cham-
pionships.
He had fallen short of the
qualifying marks, but was unable
to get into any of the meets,
according to McKenzie. By fail-
ing to go to Europe, Osbourne
didn't get a chance to qualify.
"He's had to call it a season

Tonique Williams-Darling in the

jump; Lavern Eve in the javelin;
Dereck Atkins in the men's 100,
Dominic Demeritte in the 200;
Andrae Williams and Chris

The BAAA.had to put two

But he lost the race on
Wednesday at the Thomas A.
Robinson Track and Field Sta-
dium. Therefore, McIntosh was
named to the team.
The other athlete, former
world champion Avard Moncur,
will be added to the team based
on his fitness level at a meet
today in Ireland.
He was exempted from run-


ning in the head-to-head race
because of his commitment over-
seas, according to McKinney.
If he's fit and healthy, Moncur
will join McIntosh, Andrae
Williams, Chris Brown, Aaron
Cleare and Nathaniel McKinney
on the men's 4 x 400 relay.
"We want to take six persons
who are capable of running on
