'anogne o'llg : motle r clar el


claims she could not

support the child

THE mother of the two-year-
old boy reported abandoned on
Monday told a court yesterday
that she left her son because she
had nowhere for him to live. .
Eldrice Gibson, 27, said she
left her son in the care of Ken-
neth Nathan, who was
arraigned -with her yesterday.
The mother denied that she
told him she would return
Gibson told the court that she
did not return to. collect her son
because she was trying to find a
place to live.
She said she is the mother of
three children, two of whom are
in the custody of relatives.
Gibson said she could not
support the boy as she does not
have a steady job. She claimed
his father is in prison.
Gibson told the magistrate
that she had been trying to
make living arrangements with
her sister.
The official charge, accord-
ing to court dockets, is that
between Friday, July 22, and
August 1, Gibson unlawfully
abandoned her son in a man-
ner likely to cause him suffering.
Kenneth Nathan, 27, who was
arraigned with her, was charged
with deceiving the police.
Nathan, of Fox Hill, alleged-
ly lied to Constable 1590 Bethel
on August 1, making a false
statement with the intent to
obstruct justice.
According to the prosecution,
Nathan told police that he had
found the child abandoned at

the site of the Emancipation
Day celebrations in Fox Hill.
Further investigations, how-
ever, proved that the boy had
been in his custody for two
weeks, the prosecution said.
Gibson and Nathan were
both subsequently arrested in
connection with the incident.
Nathan told Magistrate Susan
Sylvester that Gibson had left
the toddler in his care for what
he understood was to be mere-
ly a day as she was to return
with several items for the child.
Nathan said that, instead, he
had to keep the child for two
weeks as his mother did not
return. Nathan said that during
that time he took care of the
child until ultimately he could
no longer do so.
Nathan said that he had tried
on numerous occasions to
locate the boy's mother before
subsequently making his false
report to police.
Magistrate Sylvester award-
ed Nathan bail in the sum of
$2,000 with one surety.
The magistrate said she had
taken into account the fact that
he had taken care of the child
during his mother's absence.
However, she said she did
not excuse him for lying to
The magistrate noted that the
mother also faced two previous
charges and a warrant was out
for her arrest in connection to
one of them.
The mother was remanded to
Fox Hill Prison. The two will.
return to court on August 12
for a probationary report and

Chief Reporter
THE council of the Col-
lege of.the Bahamas will
begin the process of identi-
fying a new president and
will not, be deterred from
obtaining university status,
said council chairman
Franklyn Wilson during a
press conference yesterday
formally confirming the res-
ignation of Dr Rodney
It is not expected that Dr
Smith's replacement will be
in place for the fall semester.
"We want to do it as soon
as possible but let's recog-
-mnse if-youare-entertaining'
any candidate not employed
in the institution you have
to recognise that there is a
possibility that they may not
be available before a certain
period of time," he said.
This does not mean, he
said, that the council will not
be looking internally for the
new president.
However, in accordance
with regulations governing
the college, the vice-presi-
dent of research planning
and development Dr Pan-
dora Johnson, in the
absence of executive vice-
president Dr Rhonda Chip-
man-Johnson, will become
acting president.
Mr Wilson said the fer-
vour surrounding the Dr
Smith controversy showed
that the country is now hold-
ing COB to a higher stan-

A LEADING academic has
said that Senator C B Moss's
comments about whites not
attending national celebra-
tions reflect the fact that
Bahamians really need to
address race relations in an
open forum.
Christopher Curry, a his-
tory lecturer at the College of
the Bahamas, said that while
Mr Moss's comments have
stirred up heated debates on
race, "what is more important
than whites coming to the
Independence celebrations is
that we must acknowledge

that there is a problem."
He said: "As a nation we
must first address race rela-
tions as an alcoholic would
address alcoholism using a 12-
step programme. What is
more important is examining
the current relationship
between blacks and whites,
whether or not race is a per-
vasive ideology in the
Bahamas today and what hap-
pened to white Bahamians
after Majority Rule."
Mr Curry, a white Bahami-
an, explained that there is no
such distinction as white or

Miller: gas price hike

another reason for

PetroCaribe accord

Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Minister of Trade and Industry Leslie Miller, in lieu of the
recent hike in fuel prices at the pumps, continued his push for the
implementation of the recently signed PetroCaribe accord.
Noting that yesterday's rise in gas prices will continue to have
local oil companies "laughing all the way to the bank", Mr Miller
said that it is long past time to bring this to a "screeching halt".
On Thursday, gas prices went up on average $0.19 a gallon,
bringing the new prices at the pumps to $3.89 a gallon throughout
New Providence.
According to Mr Miller the prices will average about $4.33 a gal-
lon on the Family Islands and $4.06 in Grand Bahama.
The new contract signed with the three major petroleum com-
panies Esso, Texaco and Shell is the sixth fuel jump for the year.

Yesterday, assistant com-
missioner of police Reginald
Ferguson told The Tribune
that the release of the poster
does not mean police have run
into a dead end in the case.


In fact, he said that the inves-
tigation is still very much alive.
Mr Ferguson said that during
any investigation, police seek
to turn over "every rock"
which could lead to the case
being solved.
He said police rely on "every
little bit of information to do
Mr Ferguson said the poster
sought to prompt persons who
may have seen something,
before or after Romanda's
death, which could assist police.
Romanda's parents, Wesco-
la and Douglas Larrimore, say
her body was turned over to
them on Monday.
They said the autopsy report

indicated that their daughter
had died on the same day that
her body was found, leading
them to believe that she may
have been kidnapped and held
for days before her death.
Her body was discovered
on Sands Lane behind Love
Police have said that the
body was badly decomposed
when she was found, and that it
was unlikely that she had been
held for days before her death.

urday, July 9.

Anger over






Tribune Staff Reporter
Collins Avenue area say they
are completely fed up with the
government's approach to util-
ities management which they
say is causing them thousands of
dollars in lost sales.
Yesterday, they claimed that
they were severely inconve-
nienced after BEC dug up the
road and left the dirt piled up in
the front of the building earlier
this week.
"We are very concerned
about the incompetence and
insensitivity that BEC showed
during their major cable exer-
cise, said Kevin Harris, the own-
er of Oasis Music.
Mr Harris said that while he
appreciates that BEC has to

the very least the corporation

some of the employees of the

the road.
The staff of Weight Watch-
ers, also located in the area, had
to cancel their Wednesday
meeting, he added.
Mr Harris said that if utility

companies need to work, they
should do so in the evenings, so
that businesses are not nega-

He added that he had spoken
to a BEC supervisor, William
Seymour and asked him why
the company did not do the

Mr Harris claimed that was
told that BEC could not pay the
overtime pay performing that
task would require.
That explanation did not sit
with Mr Harris, who claimed
that as a multi-million dollar
operation, BEC could more
easily afford to pay a few work-
ers than his small company
could take a loss in profits.

Mr Harris said the problem
is greater than just timing, he
also feels that there is a general
lack of planning and collabora-
tion between all the utilities
companies when it comes to
road repairs.
A case in point, he paid was a
road next to the building, which
he claimed was newly paved for
only a few months by the

is that the persons most affected

THE latest Tropical Depression com-

Tropical Storm Irene, forecasters yes-

The National Hurricane Centre
(NHC) in Miami said that the
tropical depression, which formed
Thursday, is currently traveling with
maximum sustained winds of about
30 mph, as it churns toward the
US Forecasters expect it to strengthen
over the open Atlantic waters to tropical
storm strength by Tuesday.
f thesysteni'reaches sustained winds

of 39mph, it will be the earliest ninth
storm on record for the month of
However, forecaster with the Meteo-
rological Department Arnold King yes-
terday told The Tribune that the if wind
and pressure conditions remain the
unchanged, the system will miss the
Bahamas and pass on the eastern side of

"There are currently two factors in
place which will dictate the system's
path. One, there is a high pressure sys-
tem over the eastern Atlantic and then

we have the weak pressure system of
Tropical Storm Harvey. If these condi-
tions change, then there is the possibili-
ty that the system could turn towards
the Bahamas," he said.
At press time last night, the centre of
the tropical depression was located
about 865 miles West of the southern-
most Cape Verde islands.
The system was moving toward the
northwest at around 18mph.
This movement was expected to con-
tinue throughout today with a gradual
decrease in forward speed.
Maximum sustained winds were at
30mph with higher gusts, with little
change in strength forecast during the
next 24 hours.

Sir Jack Hayward's 'dream' of bridge

between Grand Bahama and Abaco

Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Grand Bahama
Port Authority co-chairman Sir
Jack Hayward said it is his dream
to see a bridge built between
Grand Bahama and Abaco within
his lifetime.
"I want to see, before I die, the
'Grabaco' bridge," Sir Jack told
the many invited guests at the
Grand Bahama Port Authority's
grand banquet at the Westin Our
Lucaya Resort in celebration of
the 50th anniversary of the birth
of Freeport on Thursday.
This was not the first time that
Port Authority officials have raised
the suggestion of a bridge linking
the two northern islands.
The late Edward St George had
initially supported the concept of a
bridge several years ago.
Sir Jack said with plans for a new
college campus underway and dis-
cussions ongoing for a new hospital
for the northern Bahamas, there
should also be consideration for a
bridge to Abaco.
"If we are going to have all of
these things for the northern
Bahamas, which presumably
includes Abaco, we then surely
should be considering the Grabaco

"I would like to go for a week-
end drive to Marsh Harbour and I
want to see the lorries going over
the bridge loaded with Abaco fruits
and vegetables into our harbour,
and put on ships and be in Florida
in a matter of hours," he said.
Many prominent residents and
business persons packed the Our
Lucaya grand ball room to cele-
brate the 50th anniversary of the
signing on August 4, 1955 of the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement.
The evening climaxed with the
cutting of a birthday cake by Sir
Jack Hayward, Lady Henrietta St
George, Governor General Dame
Ivy Dumont, and Prime Minister
Perry Christie.
Co-chairman Sir Albert Miller
raised a toast for the late chairman
Edward St George, whom he
described as a "true visionary".
"He was able to take the bare
bones of Wallace Groves' dream
and make into a living and breath-
ing reality a reality that became
the thriving city of the Freeport -
the magic city.
"He shared Wallace Groves'
vision for a Freeport, a city unlike

anything else in this region. He
pressed forward against many
obstacles and he did not rest until
that dream became a reality," Sir
Albert said.
Mr St George brought Wallace
Groves' dream of a deep-water
harbour to reality by attracting
major developments such as the
Freeport Container Port and
Grand Bahama Shipyard to
"Wallace Groves was really the
dreamer and Edward St George
and other put his dream to reality,"
Sir Jack said.

Sir Jack, who was involved in
the development of Freeport with
Wallace Groves, said in the
early days, Freeport was very prim-
"The time has really changed
today," said Sir Jack, who thanked
all those that have contributed to
making Freeport what is today.
As part of the golden anniver-
sary celebration, families of the late
Edward St George and Wallace
Groves laid a wreath at Taino
Beach and Mary Star of the. Sea,
where the men were laid rest

EDITOR, The Tribune.
IN THE early morning of
July 10, 1973, thousands of
Bahamians on Clifford Park
and thousands more in their
homes and in the streets were
heralding a birth of a nation. I
was but a kid then, but
through pictures and stories
of my elders and those old
enough to appreciate what
was happening it was a
time of happiness and great
pride. It indeed had shown
that Bahamians were, and still

dissolving into chaos and law-
Today our beautiful nation
must come to grips with this
sad fact that our treasured
legal, political and religious
systems are being sacrificed
on selfish, egoistic and
immoral altars. There must be
a code of ethics and honour
which no man should be able
to flaunt, thus making mock-
ery of our systems. No man
should be larger than the law.
It is depressing to see what is
now being hoisted on the back

EDITOR, The Tribune
THE LETTER from a Dwayne J. Hanna titled with broad
capitals: "Lottery is no good for The Bahamas" incredibly
argues what Mr. Hanna perceives to be the negative and why
a legitimate legal Lottery should not be in place in The
Bahamas without mentioning one word why the
illegal Numbers operations must be closed down to uphold
the law.
The simple fact that Mr. Hanna does not wish, seemingly
to respect and uphold the law I therefore suggest his argu-
-ment does not stand and-anyway much of what he-states can- -
not be supported by truth and facts.
This whole Lottery business is beyond being ridiculous -
those opposing a legal Lottery refuse to tell Government, the
Commissioner of Police that there is law which makes Num-
bers illegal and it is their responsibility to uphold the law --
do you hear me, Minister, Hon Cynthia Pratt?
I heard the Church of God's'President lambasting Lottery,
but not a single word from him insisting that all the illegal
Numbers operations should be closed down.
No country can be civil without the total adherence to laws
this argument against a Lottery is acceptable however,
without the insistence that Numbers be closed down simply ;
indicated that we don't wish to uphold the law and possibly
these persons advocating this position could simply be writ-
ing on behalf of the illegal Numbers operators.
Numbers are illegal. Why even The Tribune sees that?
There was no Editor's comment to this long letter which says
all of what we have heard before unsubstantiated, unscien-
tific evidence.
For those who wish to be educated on Lottery matters go
on the internet and read the truth, if it was
different would there be Lotteries?

"I vex at how it seem like we back to driving
and killing ourselves again. I am referring to the
horrible traffic accidents that happened
last holiday weekend, including the inci-
dent where those children went over-
board. Well thank God, that inci- :
dent did not end in tragedy, but .
how many more' people have to
die and get hurt before govern-
ment makes seat belts manda-
.tory and have the traffic police
take a more aggressive stance
at people who drive like they
own the road.
I think that people who are
arrested for speeding and dri-
ving reckless need to spend time
in jail.
And you know what else, I
think the time has come to pass
some very strong drunk driving laws
and all this open bottle in the car needs
to stop. When people go to the states, any
law they have, Bahamians obey because they in

we don't care enough about our people to make
sure they safe here?

be passed in the House of Assembly. We don't
need no committee or debate. Rules are rules,
if people don't like it, too bad, just follow the
rules and get over it."

"I am completely vexed at how commercial
entities are being mixed with residential areas.
.My question is, 'Why is this is being done?'
Where I live, business places have moved into
the area and as a result I now have all kinds of

trash like paper cups and food containers, fly
into my yard. I am totally fed up. Sometimes
the situation just makes me want to cry."

just because you are poor

hate when people hang all
their undesirables on the line

"I went away over the holiday weekend. As
I just wanted a quick get away, I did not have
the dozens of bags like other people. You know
some people came back with like 13 bags and
boxes and all their stuff reached and my poor
one lil' 22-pound suitcase got left.
I think that Bahamasair needs to do priority
baggage. Once your two pieces are on board,
then all the rest of your stuff can't go on until
every one else has their luggage on. That is

OAS scholarship recipients

praised by Alfred Sears

Bahamas Information
SIX Bahamians awarded full
scholarships by the Organisation
of American States (OAS) were
commended on Wednesday for
choosing to study in areas
deemed critical to the further
development of the Bahamas.
The recipients and their areas
of study are: Michael Adderley,
bachelors degree, electrical engi-
neering; Dwight Adderley, mas-
ters degree, international rela-
tions; Cindy Simon, masters
degree, history; Darlene Cargill-
Rolle,.masters degree, social
work; Leisel Wright, masters
degree, media design; Alvin C
Hepburn, masters degree, civil

In an award ceremony at the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs Act-
ing Minister of Foreign Affairs
and the Public Service Alfred
Sears commended the students
on their scholarships and the
OAS for its financial contribu-
tion to the Bahamas.
"The OAS scholarship pro-
gramme has significantly con-
tributed to the development of
the human resources of the
Bahamas, as well as the econom-
ic and social well-being of the
Bahamas as a developing coun-
try," said Mr Sears.
He said the students are being
recognised not only for the coin-

mitment made to their personal
development, but also because
they have decided to make a con-
tribution to areas of critical need
in the Bahamas.
"As we reflect on these distin-
guished recipients and the areas

they have chosen to study, we are
confident that the future of our
country is more secure because
of the investment that they have
decided to make in their intellec-
tual and professional develop-
ment," Mr Sears said.

Paws for thought at the

first annual Potcake Ball

THE Humane Society of Grand Bahama and
Old Bahama Bay Resort and Yacht Harbour
have announced the 1st annual Potcake
The went will on Saturday, August 27th start-
ing at 6.30pm on the beach at Old Bahama Bay.
Both sponsors of the event say they are on a
mission to help Grand Bahama's homeless,
abandoned and abused animals.
Under the theme Barefoot Elegance, the
evening will include a sunset cocktail cruise
with hors d'oeuvres and an open bar, a deli-
cious dinner served on the beach and live enter-
There will also be a silent auction.
The Potcake Ball is being held in honour of
the late Dennis O'Flannery, former vice presi-
dent of Real Estate Sales at Old Bahama Bay.
According to the resort, he was very sup-
portive' of the local Humane Society and adopt-
ed a beautiful potcake named "Holly".
"Unfortunately, O'Flannery died suddenly
this past March and left behind many friends on
the Island especially in West End at Old
Bahama Bay," the resort said in a statement.
Bob Kramm, chief operating officer at Old
Bahama Bay said, "Our family has always
expressed care and concern for animals; in fact
our golden retriever 'Lucky' is currently a res-
ident at Old Bahama Bay."
"After his sudden and tragic death we creat-
ed the 1st Annual Potcake Ball in his honour as
he loved Grand Bahama Island, West End and
his potcake 'Holly'. The Potcake Ball is a cele-
bration of Dennis' contributions," Mr Kramm
Dennis' wife Jennifer O'Flannery and other

members of the family will be attending the
ball and 'Holly' will make a brief guest appear-
"Old Bahama Bay is proud to present the
Potcake Ball through our 'fun-raiser' pro-
gramme for non-profit organisations. It is antic-
ipated that more than $3,000 will be raised to
help the Humane Society continue their work
helping the island's needy animals," Kramm
The resort said the proceeds will go towards
the construction of a new animal shelter, for
which an area of land has already been donated
by the Grand Bahama Port Authority.

"Sir Jack Hayward recently made a generous
donation to open the building fund account. It
is hoped that this new, state-of-the-art facility
will usher in not only a new era of animal care,
but also community involvement in the plight of
our animals," the resort said.
Tickets can be purchased at the Humane
Society of Grand Bahama for $130 per person
or couples can attend the event and spend the
night for $470.
Old Bahama Bay encourages guests to spend
the night in one of the luxury suites and enjoy
'Gospel Sunday Brunch' the next day.
There will be optional round-trip bus trans-
portation from Freeport provided by Paradise
Cove for an additional charge of $10 per person.
For tickets and/or detailed transportation and
event information, visit the Humane Society of
Grand Bahama or call 352-2477.

The minister noted that edu-

serve the values which charac-
terises us as a people, to preserve

an instrumental process for
national development. Education
is also at the very core of the

and of the human potential.

Since i982, the' OAS has con--

sistently contributed to the devel-
opment of the Bahamas through
the awarding of scholarships to
Bahamians, who have prepared
themselves to advance the nation-
al development of the country.

The recipients are to pursue
undergraduate and graduate stud-
ies at universities in the United
States, Canada, and the Univer-
sity of the West Indies (UWI)

Discussing the topic of slavery

HE privilege was ours
last week to address
the East Nassau Rotary Club at
its regular luncheon meeting,
. held at-the Nassau Yacht Club
on Friday, July 29. As the
event was being held on the
Emancipation Day weekend,
we had been asked to speak on
the subject: Slavery, Emanci-
pation and Independence.
We commenced our speech
by informing the members and
their guests that we could write
a book on each of the topics
that we were asked to deal
with. However, due to the very
limited time constraint imposed
on us, we elected not to do so
on that occasion. However, we
saw in the subject an opportu-
nity to deal with each of the
three matters in this column on
subsequent weeks. Thus, today
we begin with the topic: The
Instiftuition of Slavery.
Few subjects have inspired
as much discussion, anger and
condemnation as that of slav-
ery. There are persistent views
about _slavery that have, over
the course of time, become
widely accepted as fact. For
example, it is a widely held
position that slavery was an
institution operated by white
people to subjugate black peo-
ple to a life of perpetual
oppression. Another is that

From ancient times to the

would include the Yugoslavians
and Czechoslovakians. Gener-
ally, these people were so often
taken into slavery by conquer-

with servitude and the name
eventually evolved into what
we now know as "slave."

plant grew profusely in the
West Indies, were some of the
contributing factors that even-
tually gave birth to the large-
scale use of African slaves in
this region. In essence, it was
the catalyst for the introduc-
tion of the Trans-Atlantic slave
trade, an institution that would
last for several centuries and
one that would entail the
uprooting of millions of
Africans from their native land
and into bondage in the New
World, via the Middle Passage.
S Due to Europe's insatiable
appetite for the spoils and prof-
its to be derived from slavery
(an institution that even the
Christian Church sanctioned at
the time), the number of
African slaves in its New World
colonies grew rapidly. So rapid-
ly, in fact, that- before the end
of the 17th century the
African slaves had comprised
the majority of the population
in most European colonies in
this region.
This vast disparity in num-
bers understandably evoked
fear of slave uprisings. Howev-
er, slave owners overcame this
fear by indoctrinating their
human property with divide-
and-conquer strategies. These
strategies, which exploited the
cultural and ethnic differences
among the slaves, were rein-
forced by sowing seeds of mis-
trust among them. Unfortu-

Mr Miller said this latest hike
is another reason for the fast
implementation of the recent-
ly signed PetroCaribe accord.
Last month, Mr Miller signed
a historic agreement between

the Bahamas and Venezuela
along with 13 other Caribbean
countries forming the Petro-
Caribe alliance for cheaper
petroleum products among
member nations.
However, the accord has
come under frequent fire with

black. He said that race was socially construct-
ed, initially by people to subordinate others
and developed and fine-tuned to the great edi-
fice it is today.
He said: "The value of race in the Bahamas
still has currency because it is used to identi-
fy and distinguish people and how we relate to
each other. But race is a fallacious concept
because while it holds a lot of historical and
social value, it has no biological and scientific
Mr Curry pointed out that Michael Cra-
ton (historian/ writer) had argued that since
1967 white Bahamians had been confined to
the dustbins of history, directly resulting from
the black power ideology of the 1960s and
However, Craton showed that this was
because since Bahamian whites lost political
power, they did not disappear but rather
focused their energies into their businesses.
"It is not like they went away or vanished
from the face of the earth, but they just
focused on maintaining economic hegemony
since losing political power."
Mr Curry said: "B]sed upon research post
1973-2003, there have been latent forms of
racism throughout the Bahamas and residen-
tial segregation still persists. In some areas of
New Providence, for example, there are areas

the minister had authorisation
from the government to sign
such an agreement on behalf of
the country, and its possible
international repercussions.
However, Mr Miller has been
quoted as saying that he did

where there are pockets of white Bahamians.
"Stretching in. east to the west in Nassau
there are a lot more whites. However, even in
biracial bifurcated communities, there is, a
division along racial lines the whites are on
the ridge and the blacks are on the worst land
or under the ridge.
"Just look at Prospect Ridge, the Eastern
Road and even Over-the-Hill where whites
live on the hill and blacks below. This is even
more glaring on the Family Islands where
there are still all-white communities such as
Spanish Wells and Elbow Cay," he added.
He said he took issue that the last census
using race, taken 50 years ago, had only
showed that the national average was 85 per
cent black and 15 per cent whites.
"There has been no census over the last 50
years to identify the ethnic and minority
groups in our country, therefore ignoring the
fact that they all made a great contribution to
our country," he claimed.
Mr Curry said that because his research
showed that de facto social and residential
discrimination is still known to permeate cer-
tain sectors of Bahamian society, he welcomed
the public discourse Mr Moss' comments had

have Cabinet approval when
signing the contract and insisted
that PetroCaribe is the "best
deal" for the Bahamas, and the
only way to lift the country from
its current fuel woes.
"There are more hikes com-
ing," Mr Miller warned, claim-
ing gas prices will reach a new
record high of $4 a gallon
before the end of August.
"Oil has now gone up to
$62.42 a gallon because of the
death of the Saudi Arabian
king. I expect that there will be
another increase because one
of the oil companies (Shell) has-
n't brought in their price as yet.
So I expect the price to jump
again in the next 10 days," he
Mr Miller outlined that, as a
result- of these new prices, every
product, including food items,
could be expected to be
increased as employers look to
cover their fuel surcharges and
other energy-related expenses.
He said that detractors could
say what they must about Petro-
Caribe, as they obviously are
not being affected by the hike in

oil prices.
"Let them say what the hell
they please about PetroCaribe
while the average man is catch-
ing hell. Those who oppose it
obviously are not being affected
by these prices. But my concern
is not about them.
"My concern is about the
average Bahamian who is catch-
ing hell. The sooner we impose
PetroCaribe the better the
Bahamas and the people will
be," he said.
Mr Miller said every country
that signed on to the accord had
continued to have excellent
standing .and trade with the
United States, "despite how the
critics may say otherwise".
"I'm not concerned with the
rich, I'm concerned with the
- poor. This agreement is only a
change to the Caracas Accord
signed in 1980.
"But here we are playing
these stupid, petty, games while
these three oil companies are
laughing all the way to the
bank. It's time we put a screech-
ing stop to that and bring all
this to an end," he said.

Senior Sports Reporter
HELSINKI, Finland: The
Bahamas' women's 4 x 100
metre relay team will be rep-
resented by just two of the
members who won the gold
in Seville, Spain in 1999.
Sevatheda Fynes, said they
are going to give it their best
shot here at the 10th IAAF
World Championships.
"I think we're coming
together since we got here,"
Fynes noted. "Philippa and I
have been working on our
exchanges because Timicka
has been a little sick.
"But, as you know, we're
thinking about changing some
things in the line-up for the
relays. But we will have to
wait and see what happens."

She was referring to the
line-up that includes herself,

thing else is going slow
because she has to wait until
Friday before the heats of the
relay are contested. The final
is set for Saturday.

egated to just the relays, a
position that she found awk-
ward, but one that she's trying
to cope with.
"It feels kind of slow to me
because I now have such a
long way to go before I com-
pete," she reflected.
"Today, I -would normally
be getting ready for the 100,,:

but now I have to wait a whole
week for the relay. So it's
going pretty slow."
Arnett-Willie, who is back
after making the Olympic
team last year, but didn't get
to run, said she's hoping that
she will be in the line-up here
this weekend. .
"We are practising and try-
i:ng to keep fit, so, although

we have a long way before we
run, it isn't as long as it was at
the Olympics," she stated.
"We just have to wait to see
who will run."
In comparison to the
Olympics, Arnett-Willie said
it's totally different, but she's
enjoying it. Her only concern
is the food is not as good as
