MP won't rule


out running for


another position


* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
MONTAGU MP Brent
Symonette will not contest the
leadership of his party at the
next FNM convention. Howev-
er, he did not rule out the pos-
sibility of running for a deputy
"Today was the post of
leader. Tomorrow is another
day. I am not ruling out the pos-
sibility that I may run for anoth-
er position in the party at this
time," said Mr Symonette dur-
ing a press conference announc-
ing the decision yesterday.
And as for the speculation
of a (former prime minister
Hubert) Ingraham/ Brent
Symonette ticket, Mr Symon-
ette allowed for the rumours to
continue by responding: "You'll
have to ask him."
He did, however, confirm
that he will offer as a candidate
for the Montagu Constituency
at the next election should his
constituency association so wish.
Regarding the position of
leader of the FNM, Mr Symon-
ette said he had given the mat-
ter considerable thought. He
acknowledged that the
announcement would disap-.
point many people, but hoped
his many supporters and well
wishes would respect his deci-
sion.
This decision, he said, had no
bearing on the question of the
colour of his skin.

* By ADRIAN GIBSON
TRADE and Industry
Minister Leslie Miller said
his. ministry will revoke the
licences of Bahamians
caught hiring illegal immi-
grants to work for them at
the downtown straw market.
Mr Miller told The Tri-
bune that "there are many
Bahamians who have big
time jobs in banks and thing,
but may have hired foreign-
ers to work at their stalls for
little-a-nuttin' at the straw
market. But even though
some of them lie like hell,
we are trying to clean that
up.
He said that while he
knows that many of the
Bahamian-owners of stalls

have work permits, there
may be several illegal ele-
ments operating there. "A

after she was presented with her
medal by IAAF Council Mem-
ber, Cesar Moreno Bravo, less
than an hour after the perfor-
mance, an overjoyed Williams-
Darling said it was "hard to put
into words how I felt winning
the world title a year after I won
the Olympic final."
"It's just been such a roller-
coaster experience for me. It's
been an historical moment for
me and for the Bahamas, just to
be able to do something like
this. I'm just grateful and hon-
oured to be here."
Williams-Darling's sensa-
tional performance put the
Bahamas on the medal table,
tied for eighth place with
Ecuador, Lithuania, Qatar and
Uganda. They all trail Cuba,
which has one gold and a silver,
and just ahead of Kenya with a
silver and three bronzes.

that the Bahamas' national
anthem was played at the bian-
nual championships. The last
time was when Troy Kemp won
the first medal a gold in the
men's high jump, in Gothen-
burg, Sweden, in 1995, 20 min-
utes before Pauline Davis-
Thompson claimed the first sil-
ver medal in the women's 400.
At the 7th championships in
Seville, Spain, in 1999 when the
team of Sevatheda Fynes, Chan-
dra Sturrup, Pauline Davis-
Thompson, Debbie Ferguson
and alternate Eldece Clarke-
Lewis claimed the gold in the
women's 4 x 100 relay.
And then at the 8th champi-
onships in Edmonton, Canada,
in 2001, Avard Moncur stood
on top of the world with his
men's title in the men's 400. At
that same meet, Moncur teamed
up with Chris Brown, Troy
McIntosh, Tim Munnings and


alternate Carl Oliver as they
clincfied the men's 4 x 400 relay
silver medal.
The Bahamas also got a
bronze medal from Fynes in the
women's 100 at the 6th cham-
pionships in Athens, Greece, in
1997 and at the 9th champi-
onships in Saint Denis, Paris,
France, Chandra Sturrup would
eventually receive the bronze in
the women's 100 after gold
medalist Kellie White was
stripped for failing a drug test.
Also in Paris, Leevan 'Super-
man' Sands emerged on the
podium with a bronze medal in
the men's triple jump.
But for Williams-Darling, she
will go down in history as the
first Bahamian to come back
after winning the Olympic gold
to add the world title to her
resume.
The 29-year-old graduate of
St. John's College and the Uni-
versity of South Florida, had to
dig down deep, coming back
after leading the race through
the final turn, only to lose the,
lead to Richards on the straight
away..;
But Williams-Darling, who
lost to Richards just once this
year, was determined not to let
the big one slip away from her.
She fought hard in the final 50
metres and was able to get
ahead of pre-race favourite
Richards before she raised her
hands in anticipation of her big
victory.
While Williams-Darling cel-
ebrated with her PB of 49.55, a
disappointed Richards had to
settle for second in 49.74 and
defending champion Ana Gue-
vara from Mexico had to settle
for the bronze in a season's best
of 49.81.
For Williams-Darling, she was
just elated to be wearing the
gold medal again because as she
said: "You just don't get these
victories too often." She admit-
ted that "it's difficult to com-
pare this gold to the Olympic
gold medal."
Richards, on the other hand,


said it was a race that "I knew I
could win. I guess it was just not
my time. It was a good race, but
I did not execute as well as
coach had wanted me to.
"I think I came through the
200 too fast."
However, Guevara wasn't
concerned with the colour of
the medal as long as she got one.
"I will enjoy this moment
immensely," she said.

Woman disappears


during church service


W By NATARIO McKENZIE
THE family of a 25-year-old
woman who disappeared this
past Sunday while attending a
church service is hoping for her
safe return.
Relatives of 25-year-old
Rochell O'Brien say they are
baffled by her sudden disap-
pearance and continue to search
in vain for clues of her where-
abouts.
"She is a nice girl who doesn't
bother people, I just pray that
nothing happened to her," 29-
year-old Cindy O'Brien said of
her sister yesterday.
According to Cindy, her sister
was last seen at the Church of
God of Prophecy on Blue Hill
Road this past Sunday.
"I think it was around
1.30(pm), church wasn't out as
yet. She got up and said that
she. was going to use the
restroom but she never came
back. When church got out, we
looked for her but we never saw
her," Cindy O'Brien said.
"The last time we saw her she
was wearing her church clothes,
a brown dress and white stock-
ings with her hair in one," she
said.

'Miracle water' sparks amazing claims


* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
WATER with the "potential
to bring about miracles" is being
offered to the public from a well
known local pastor.
Testimonies received by the
"Singing Prophet" Bishop
Lawrence Rolle have claimed
that the. water blessed by him
and imbued with "the spirit of
God" have brought the dead
back to life, cured an AIDS
patient, healed the blind and
deaf, and miraculously brought
about the payment of overdue
mortgages.
In an interview with The Tri-
bune yesterday, Bishop Rolle
claimed that a "vision of God"
inspired him to bless common
bottled water so that it would
bring "blessings to his people."
The 38-year-old bishop, who
said he has been praying and
fasting from the age of 15,
explained that one day during
his prayers, God spoke to him
and said:
"I am going to bless my peo-

ple because my people are
struggling and hurting, the
singers don't believe what they
are singing, the preachers don't
believe what they are preach-
ing, and the teachers don't
believe what they are teaching.
If you don't believe in miracles
close the Bible and the church
because I am a God of mira-
cles."

Bottles
Bishop Rolle claimed that fol-
lowing this "divine message" he
started to put bottles of water
on the altar of his church and
prayed that the "spirit of God"
would bless the water.
Because he has received
more than 130 testimonies of


miracles in the span of three
weeks, he said he has had to
move his congregation into a
larger worship space to accom-
modate the number of people
coming to him for the water.
Starting tonight, and contin-
uing to Saturday evening, Bish-
op Rolle will be at Bishop Ros
Davis' Golden Gates World
Outreach Ministries on
Carmichael Road where he says
he will offer "healing and deliv-
erance from evil spirits."
A press release from Bishop
Davis recounts one miracle
claimed to be caused by the
blessed water.

Construction on a new straw

market 'to begin by end of year'

N By ADRIAN GIBSON g -y,
MINISTER of Trade and Indus- .
try Leslie Miller has committed to
beginning construction on the new on w
straw market by the end of the year. .
He promised that when complete, a
the new market will be an authenti-
cally Bahamian attraction.
"Right now we are accepting bids
for the construction of the founda-
tion for the new straw market and
we hope to start major construction
by the end of the year,"' Mr Miller
said.
The minister vowed that comple-
tion of the new building would signal
"a total restructuring of the market." A THE site of the old straw

The minister said the new market will mark a return to the days when
authentic Bahamian goods were sold to visitors.

"We need go back to having agreal straw market, not a flea market,"
he said.
he minister said he is very disturbed that the history and uniqueness
associated with the straw market is being destroyed by hundreds of vendors,
who no-longer sell straw products.
Several locals recently told The Tribune that the native Bahamian straw
baskets and crafts, that have been admired by visitors for years, are now
being replaced by "knock-off" European hand-bags.
"I just came back from Trinidad on the weekend and when I was down
there I was looking at the indigenous items there. We must do a better job
with outr rafts here man," Mr Miller said.
The.mininister promised that he would draw up plans by the end of the
year to incite vendors to produce authentic Bahamian goods.
He added that straw vendors will be required pay a stipend to assist in
the upkeep of the new market after they begin occupying it.
"We will not be spending public funds continuously; they must play their
part," Mr Miller said.

now receiving care at home,"
the release said.
When The Tribune asked
Bishop Rolle about the inci-
dent, he said that while he was
not a direct witness to this "mir-
acle," he had had the event con-
firmed for him through the tes-
timony of the woman who told
him she had sprinkled water on
the dead man. He did not know
the man, nor did he know the
woman's name.

Victim
Bishop Rolle also spoke of a
"miracle" in which a woman
who was the victim of car acci-
dent was cured by the blessed
water.
"There was one woman who
was knocked down and
dragged. Someone sprinkled the
water on her and she did not
need an ambulance," he
claimed.
Bishop Rolle said he has also
blessed a woman with a col-
lapsed womb who was then able

Why Sir Stafford left the Bahamas


WHY DID Sir Stafford Sands, former Min-
ister of Finance and Tourism, leave the
Bahamas, a country for which he had done so
much and which he loved dearly?
We can't answer that question, but we shall
recount the sequence of events that led to Sir
Stafford's departure and let our readers come
to their own conclusions.
Around the time of the January 10 1967
election, Sir Stafford was not a well man. At
the end of April that year he returned from
Miami after undergoing six weeks of medical
treatment for what was said at the time to be
bronchial congestion. The following month
Lady Sands made a statement in The Tribune
that their home, "Waterloo", was not for sale.
She said she was "sick and tired" of the harass-
ing calls she was receiving. She wanted her
tormentors to know that she and her husband
were not selling their home, but intended "to
stay and reside in it".
In June of the same year Sir" Stafford
announced his retirement from his legal prac-
tice. He said he and Lady Sands planned to
spend their summers in Spain and their winters
at their home, "Waterloo", in Nassau.
The following month July 4 1967 Sir
Stafford announced his resignation as UBP
representative for the City District in the
House of Assembly. This resulted in a bye-
election.
His reason for resigning, he said, was
because he was "not prepared to be a paid
professional politician." Until the advent of
the PLP, government legislators served with-
out salary. However, Sir Stafford made it clear
that he had not resigned from his political par-
ty, the UBP, and would "always be available to
work for the party" during the time he was "in
Nassau each year."
This resulted in a vicious debate in the
House with Prime Minister Lynden Pindling
denouncing Sir Stafford's reasons for resigning.
He said they were not true. According to Sir
'Lynden Sir Stafford was "obliged to run" from
the Bahamas because he was a "total embar-
rassment to his party".
In the intervening years Bahamians decided
that Sir Stafford had left the Bahamas because
he had vowed he would never live under a
black government. Of course, Sir Stafford had
never made such a vow. In fact, he would have
been happy under the Ingraham administra-
tion or even under the present PLP adminis-
tration of Perry Christie. His decision to leave
had nothing to do with the skin colour of those


governing, but rather the unsafe and unhealthy
atmosphere existing in the Bahamas at the
.time-.,
In Tuesday's Tribune former PLP deputy
prime minister Arthur Hanna told The Tri-
bune that when it was discovered during the
commission of inquiry into gambling in
Freeport that Sir Stafford had accepted con-
sultancy fees from the Grand Bahama Port
Authority, Sir Lynden had invited him to
return home, promising that he would not be,
prosecuted. Sir Stafford did not return.
"He wanted nothing to do with a country
run by blacks," Mr Hanna concluded.
But let's consider the hostile, disrespectful
atmosphere to which Sir Stafford would have
returned and decide if you would have
returned home if you had been Sir Stafford.
There was an atmosphere of disrespect for
institutions and persons in authority the
old flag had been burned, the former national
anthem was treated with contempt and the
PLP newspaper pursued an agenda to encour-
age disrespect for the country's leaders -
whenever these men were referred to in the
party newspaper only their first names were
used.
And so we were not surprised when one
day we saw Sir Stafford cross Bay Street and
heard a little urchin shout: "Hey! Stafford!"
Rumours are always a part of any election;
some turn out to be true, most are false. But
one rumour, true or false, that was taken seri-
ously, but never published in any newspaper at
the time, claimed that four of the town's lead-
ing citizens were marked for assassination
should the UBP win the election. Sir.Stafford's
name headed the list.
Before his death some five years later, Sir
Stafford confided to a friend that he had not
returned home because he no longer felt safe.
He said he couldn't even go to his car without
unpleasantness.
It was nothing that the PLP government
could have controlled. Angry emotions had
been unleashed. Once aroused they had to
run their course only time would heal.
Sir Stafford, a cultured man with many and
varied interests, found peace, security and com-
fort in Spain. And that is where he remained.
'it 'vas his wish that he should return to
Nassau in death. In 1975 his daughter brought
his ashes home for burial in the family plot in
the Eastern cemetery of St Matthew's church.
In 1994 his daughter and his two grandsons
also returned home for good.


Black and




white should





be irrelevant


EDITOR, The Tribune
CONTROVERSY is so
interesting, ain't it? This black
and white thing, racially speak-
ing that is, has a lot of people
writing letters to the editor, and
that's a good thing. I would like
to offer an opinion related to
this topic.
I just read today in a newspa-
per from a day or so back, that
the image of Sir Stafford Sands
will be removed from the $10
note. I couldn't care less one
way or the other. He ain never
give me nuttin'.
The hypocrisy that I see in
the removal of his image how-
ever, is ridiculously shameful,.
and especially because his
image has already been put into
use. My God, I so detest little
minds!
Is Sir Stafford, or is he not,
the engineer of what has
become our modern tourism
industry? And is he or is he not
the one who caused our dollar
to be what it is today? I believe
most people accept that he is,
even his critics. Under this
assumption, I find it downright
hypocritical that the very ones
responsible for removing his
image from our money have
benefited tremendously from
his contributions to this country.
And they are black! Hmm-
mm,.
Let's not kid ourselves for
one minute. When Sir Lynden
and the PLP came 'nto power in
1967, they were many in their
ranks who were full of
vengeance. And if there had
been any way to rid the
Bahamas of the white devils, it
would have been done,
although the PLP had come to
power on the platform of rep-
resenting all poor Bahamians.
But, alas, the white devils had
something that was so desper-
ately needed MONEY! So
instead, a deal had to be made
with the devil, and history
shows that all the black man
wanted anyway, was the same
thing money and power.
We're not so different after all,
ey?
History dictated to us that
financial power has always'
come from the anglo countries
of the world.
Unfortunately the black man
was brought into the fold
through a rather inhumane-
process known as slavery.
There were those black men
however, who saw an opportu-
nity to excel under the white
man,, and to their great credit,
they seized upon it. And as they
rose through the ranks, they set
an example for their people,

and one step at a time we have
arrived at today where there are
black people in all sorts of
authoritative positions in this
country, and who enjoy great
financial success, in spite of the
presence of white people.
Are all black people now
equal to any white? Probably
not. I'm not that delusional. But
the station of the black man has
come so far that it would be an
insult to the blood, sweat and
tears of their forebears to not
appreciate their own accom-
plishments. Also, the station of
all white 'men is not equal in
this country.
You better have money if you
want to get anywhere in this:
Bahamas as a white man today,
at least where any dealings with
government is concerned. In
other words, I know my place in
this brave new Bahamas where
I was born. But I don't let that
stop my friendship with whoev-
er I wish to be friends with.
Many Bahamians call this
country a Christian nation. I beg
to differ, thinking rather that
we are merely a very religious
people, ie regular church atten-
dees, etc. But religion and
Christianity don't mix. Figure
that out if ya bad. However,
let's assume that we are a Chris-
tian nation for a moment. What
is one of the greatest traits that
a Christian is supposed to be
identified as having? Forgive-
ness! Get over it already!
I have said it before, and I
am forced to say it again. If you
insist upon living in the past,
then you shall be consumed
thereby. Stafford Sands done
dead man! How he ga hurt us
now? Besides that, if he was the
evil man that many say he was,


then he is in a whole lot of hurt
right up in now? You know
what I'm sayin'?
By the way, the same applies
for those who are trying to
rewrite history in such a way as
to remove Christopher Colum-
bus from the position of the
official discoverer of the
Bahamas, in favour of the belief
that black people from Africa
were the first to discover this
land.
Let me be very clear. If the
provable historical evidence is
there, then by all means we
have to rewrite our history
books. If on the other hand, the
motivation to change that which
has been accepted for hundreds
of years is of such an ungodly
standard as racism, then may
God "heap coals upon your
head". Stop playin' people!
When spite is the motivating
factor behind anything, we can-
not really expect people to act
rationally. On the other hand,
how empowering it would have
been to say to the world: "We
Bahamians, because we are
such a compassionate, God-
fearing people, have decided
that there is nothing to be
gained by continuing to hate
those who may have wronged
us in the past. But rather, we
will forgive them, and pray for
healing and a blessing upon our
land."
May the actions of the devi-
ous be confounded completely.
I ain one bit scared. Only of
Him. He still run tings, black
and white.
Oh, one more thing. I wish
to offer my face for use on our
money. I work hard, pay my
taxes without griping too much,'
and I don't criticise unless it is
constructive. I am a great
Bahamian, I think.

EDITOR, The Tribune
I UNDERSTAND the
global oil "mafia" artificial-
ly raising the price of oil, but
if anyone drives around at
night time one would think
that the government works
24/7, so I must ask the gov-
ernment certain questions.
I want to know if all the
Government BEC bills are
up to date and paid? If not I
want to know how much is
outstanding? Further, when
will the balances be settled?
Under the FNM at one time
we were told Government
owed BEC $40 million, so
BEC had to charge the pay-
ing consumers, us, higher
rates to meet their expenses.
I want to know why per-
manent secretaries are not
walking around their offices
when they leave turning off
all unnecessary lights and
equipment?
I want to know from BEC
exactly how they calculate
the formula for the energy
surcharge? No mumbo-jum-
bo: exactly how is it calcu-
lated, because I suspect
BEC is using this surcharge
as a revenue enhancer -


basically taking advantage
of the consumers and prob-
ably the non-payment by
government.
Ministry of Youth &
Sports many of the areas
in your responsibility we
witness flood-lighting which
has to be very expensive lit
up like a Christmas tree into
the very late hours who is
paying that surcharge? The
public.
How is it that in most gov-
ernment offices the employ-
ees wear sweaters year
round, as inside it is like
being in a freezer? Surely
75-78 degrees would satisfy
everyone?
Government offices leave
their front doors open trying
to air-condition the globe it
would seem and when you
suggest to the security
guards, they get all upset!
I hope the government,
whoever is responsible will
answer this. The newspapers
need to follow up on this
because we could conserve a
lot.

SConsultation on conch


* By KARAN MINNIS
THE Bahamas could begin
feeling the effects of Tropical
Depression Irene by Saturday,
according to Chief Meteorol-
ogist Basil Dean.
Speaking to The Tribune
yesterday, Mr Dean explained
that because Irene "is expect-
ed to move into a more
favourable environment over
the next 48 hours, the possi-
bility of re-strengthening is
extremely great."
"Right now it seems to be
getting better in structure, so it
is likely that in the 48 hours it
will become a tropical storm
again.
"If Irene continues on its
westward track it is likely that
we will experience the effects
of it by Saturday whether as a
depression or as a storm," he
said. "There is also a possibil-
ity that Irene may make a
northwest turn away from the
islands, and we are very opti-
mistic about that turn."
Yesterday, Tropical
Depression Irene was 750
miles south-southeast of
Bermuda moving west-noith-
west at 13mph with maximum
sustained winds of 35mph.
Currently, there are also
four tropical waves over the
Atlantic ocean that may
develop into tropical storms
by the weekend.
However, according to Mr
Dean, it is unclear if they will
affect the Bahamas.
"Because they are still quite
some distance anyway, noth-
ing is certain at this time.
However, we are going to
watch them closely for devel-
opment," he said.
According to Mr Dean,
"the general movement of
tropical waves are east to
west, hence it is too early to
predict if they will affect us."
"If they remain as tropical
waves, we will likely get show-
ers similar to what we are
experiencing now," he said.

* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Department of Fish-
eries said it has renewed its
efforts to decide whether
there should be a closed sea-
son for the harvesting of
conch.
In an interview with The
Tribune yesterday, director
of Fisheries Michael Braynen
said that the department has
been engaging in consulta-
tions with the public on the
question since last summer,
but has stepped up its efforts
since June of this year.

Ministry

In early June, The Tribune
interviewed Minister of Agri-
culture, Fisheries and Local
Government Alfred Gray,
who said that his ministry has
been advised that the conch
population is dwindling.
Mr Gray said that accord-
ing to local fishermen, conchs
are only being found further
from shore and are in deeper
waters than usual.
"The major concern that
Bahamian fishermen have is
that during the time when the


conch population may not be
dwindling, but merely migrat-
ing to other areas.
He explained that methods
employed by some fishermen,
including the practice crack-
ing conch shells under water
and leaving behind the,
shards, may cause living
conchs to abandon an area.

Opinion

Mr Braynen said that in his
opinion, the primary reason.
for the dwindling conch pop-
ulation is over-harvesting.
"Through the media, meet-
ings with fishermen, pam-
phlets and talks at schools we
try to raise the level of aware-
ness of the legal size limit for
the conch in the Bahamas"
said Mr Braynen.
"One of the major prob-
lems is that people are har-
vesting juvenile conchs."
"This indicates a shortage
of sufficient quantities of
mature conchs," he added.
Consultation with the pub-
lic is continuing and Mr Bray-
nen invited interested persons
to express their views to the
Department of Fisheries.

Spate of crimes





this week under





investigation


* By ADRIAN GIBSON

POLICE are investigating a spate of crimes
that happened on Tuesday.
The incidents included cases of armed robbery
and counterfeiting, and follow three armed rob-
beries that occurred on Monday one of which
left two people recovering from gunshot wounds.
According to police however, the upsurge in
crime over the past few days is not an indication
of a general trend.
Police press liaison Inspector Walter Evans
told The Tribune that 29-year-old American
Jamal Rodgers was attempting to rent a jet ski at
a Paradise Island hotel when the jet ski operator,
believing Rodgers produced counterfeit money,
contacted police.
, A search was conducted and Rodgers was
allegedly found in possession of $600 in coun-
terfeit US currency.
Rodgers, of Gary, Indiana, is currently being
held by the police commercial crimes unit.
He is expected to.appear in court today.
A 32-year-old Fox Hill man sustained head
injuries during the Fox Hill day festivities.
An incident that reportedly occurred some-
time before midnight resulted in the man being
transported to the Princess Margaret hospital,
where he is currently listed in serious condition.
Up until press time, police were uncertain as
to what transpired.
Police also report that Mella Rolle, manager
at the Travellers Rest hotel and restaurant on


West Bay Street, was accosted and robbed of an
undisclosed amount of money.
Ms Rolle was in the Travellers Rest parking
lot around 4.30pm on Tuesday when a man who
had reportedly been hiding in nearby bushes
brandished a handgun and held Ms Rolle up
and stole her handbag that contained money
belonging to her and the hotel.
Inspector Evans said a 24-year-old Miami
Street man was sitting on a wall with others
when was approached by two males who
engaged in a heated verbal exchange. with him.
It is reported that the men departed, returning
with another man later.

Handgun

Another heated exchange reportedly occurred
and a handgun was produced by one of the three
men, following which shots were fired.
The three men reportedly attempted to get
into a black vehicle, but the vehicle sped, off
leaving them at the scene. They escaped on foot
into a nearby area, Mr Evans said.
Two persons are currently assisting police
with their investigations into the matter.
Asked about the apparent upsurge in criminal
activity over the last few days, Inspector Evans.
denied that it was part of any sort of trend, or
due to the time of year.
"Sometimes these occurrences are up and
sometimes down. When it comes to crime, noth-
ing remains static," he said

Man admits to




having $3,000




of marijua na


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
A 29-YEAR-OLD Sunlight Village man
pleaded guilty to possessing nearly $3,000 worth
of marijuana which was discovered while police
were searching his home earlier this week.
According to the prosecution, shortly before
3pm on Monday two officers from the Central
Police Station went to the home of Edward
Ferguson at Sunlight Cottage to execute a
search warrant.
Police say they were forced to shoot and kill
a rottweiler dog before entering the property.
Upon entering the home, the officers report-
edly discovered a quantity of marijuana in one
of the bedrooms on the eastern side of the
house.
According to the prosecution, there were
several small plastic bags and a backpack con-


Bae


taining marijuana as well as a number of mari-
juana seeds. The drugs reportedly had a weight
of two pounds and four and a half ounces.
Edward Ferguson, 40, was arrested immedi-
ately after the search, however 29-year-old
Kirkwood Hutchinson, who also resides at the
Sunlight Cottage home, later turned himself in
to police.
Hutchinson pleaded guilty to the charge of
possessing drugs and told Magistrate Carolita
Bethel that he had found the drugs in an open
field and intended to sell the drugs to make
money. Hutchinson was sentenced to serve 18
months at Her Majesty's Prison.
Ferguson pleaded not guilty to the charge.
However because he had a previous drug
conviction, he was demiied bail and remanded
into police custody. The matter was adjourned
to November 21.

Paintings hidden


from sight


-but


are not miss


* By KARAN MINNIS
THE portraits of five British
monarchs that once hung in the
House of Assembly are not lost
- although the public no longer
has free access to them.
Yesterday questions arose as
to the location of the five full-
length original oil portraits of
British monarchs after a letter
questioning there whereabouts
was printed in The Tribune.
According to Cynthia Gibbs,
secretary to the governor gen-
eral, the five oil paintings were
removed and stored in the Sen-
ate building in September of
1994, when the House of
Assembly was undergoing a
$280,000 "facelift".
Now, they are hanging
"proudly at Government
House" she said.
Four of the five paintings
originally hung in the debating
chamber of the House, while
the other was adorned the


downstairs foyer.
At the time of the repairs, it
was reported in the local media
that House of Assembly staff
had received telephone calls
from members of the public
who.were upset that the por-
traits were removed.
Today, people are still con-
cerned.
In a letter to the editor print-
ed in yesterday's Tribune, H
Humes wrote: "The large oil
paintings that used to hang on
the walls of the House were
removed and it was stated at
the time that they would be
placed and put on exhibition in
a suitable alternative place."
"It might be academic but...
has anyone seen them? Does
anyone know where they are?
When are they going to be re-
hung in a suitable public
place?," he asked.
Mr Humes also challenged
the director of Archives and the
chairman of the Heritage Cor-


poration to account for the
paintings.
Mrs Gibbs said: "I cannot say
why the paintings were sent
here, but I guess that they were
sent here because at that time
there was no art gallery, and
maybe they viewed Govern-
ment House as a safe haven for
the portraits."
When asked if people have
public access to view them, Mrs
Gibbs said, "Government
House is a public house, but you
can only come by invitation. So
people can see them as long as
they are invited to the house."
Mrs Gibbs said the govern-
ment has had new frames made
for the portraits and has made
other minor repairs to them.
"The portraits have remained
in good condition and we intend
on keeping them that way," she
said. "We are very proud of her-
itage and these portraits are a
part of it, therefore we plan to
keep them safe and protected."


Anglicans celebrate



50 years of Eldon


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
ANGLICANS took time yes-
terday morning to reflect and
celebrate Bishop Michael
Eldon's half-century of service.
St George's Anglican Church
on Montrose Avenue was filled
to capacity with well-wishers for
an early morning mass held to
mark the 50th anniversary of
bishop Eldon being ordained to
the priesthood.
Bishop Eldon was scheduled
to conduct the mass in celebra-
tion of this milestone, which sig-
nifies a great achievement in
the Anglican Church.
However, on January 31, he
was admitted to Doctors Hos-
pital with pneumonia and after

complications from this illness
suffered respiratory failure and


went into a coma.
He remained in hospital for
nearly two-and-a-half months
and was allowed to go home on
April, 24, where he now
receives 24-hour care.
In a medical update yester-
day from Dr Kevin Moss, the
bishop's physician, it was noted
where Bishop Eldon is current-
ly in a semi-comatose state, and
that over the past two months
there has not been any signifi-
cant improvement in his mental
status.
His general condition remains
stable.
* Suffragant bihim with us, and
whatever condition he is in. He
is still himself, this is just a dif-
ferent manifestation of who he
is." she said.

A bomb exploded on a busy

Wednesday, sending

Associated Press.
Desmond Callandar, a wit-
ness, said the blast seemed to


come from a large pile of
garbage bags on the side of the
shop-lined street in downtown
Port-of-Spain.
People screamed and ran, he
said.
The blast just before noon
sent garbage flying but caused
no damages to the street or

evacuated the street and a


bomb squad was sent to inves-

The explosion came a month
after a bomb exploded inside a

injuring 14 people, including a
woman who lost her leg. No
one has been arrested in the
blast last month.
The two explosions occurred

Food festival to spice up Nassau


* EVENT organisers aoounced their plans for the festival from Spetember 29 to August 2


THE Bahamas is set to give
visitors a taste of the islands with
the Bahamas Culinary Classic
Wine and Food Festival.
Indigenous foods such as
conch and other Bahamian del-
icacies will be prepared in every
way imaginable, organisers say.
The annual culinary event,
held this year between Septem-
ber 29 and October 2, is being
sponsored by the Bahamas and
Gourmet Magazine.
A Ministry of Tourism
spokesman said the festival will
take a new twist this year, tar-
geting culinary enthusiasts from
all over the world, attracting
them to the Bahamas to dine in
New Providence's finest restau-
rants with food prepared by the
country's top chefs.
Julia Burnside, for seven
years the event chairwoman,
welcomed the new injection of
energy from event partner
Gourmet Magazine, and said
she looks,forward to many local
sponsors joining in on the
excitement.
During the three-day event,
famed Bahamian and interna-
tional chefs such as Emmanuel
Gibson, Tracey Sweeting, Jason
McBride and Lorenzo Martinez
will prepare an array of sump-
tuous Bahamian delights.
The Culinary Classic will fea-
ture judging by Sara Moulton,
host of Food Network's Sara's
Secrets.
Ms Moulton, along with oth-
er celebrities and judges,, will
sample and choose their
favorite dishes prepared by
chefs from hotels throughout
the islands.
During the four-day period,.
the judging will take place at
the Celebrities' Choice cocktail
reception on the historic Gov-
ernment House grounds and a
mystery basket competition will
be held at the College of the
Bahamas School of Hospitality
and Tourism Studies, where
culinary teams compete for
internationally recognised ACF
gold, silver and bronze medals.
Following the cocktail recep-
tion and the mystery basket
competition, patrons of the fes-
tival will wake up to a real
"down home" Bahamian break-


fast followed by a day in the
sun.
Later that evening, a handful
of top restaurants on Nassau
and Paradise Island will serve
up seven-course meals in an


exotic "dine around town"
event.
The gourmet wine and food
festival will also include celebrity
chef seminars, book signings and
of course, wine and food tasting.

Life beyond politics, and a mystery


POLITICS has its place
in society and because
ours is a small society, it tends
to have a big place. Yet, politics
isn't everything and everything
isn't politics.


There is actually an extraor-
dinary life beyond politics, one
that is far too often obscured
by it. This life includes the quest
for self-actualisation; the rais-
ing of family; the pursuit of
meaningful relationships; the

environment is held in suspi-
cion depending on who utters
it.
As such, we seldom want to
listen to each other unless we
share political persuasions. This
is too limiting and it is having a
diminishing effect on our devel-
opment, both personal and
communal. We must see life
more broadly. To do so, I rec-
ommend three courses of
action.

First, let's give ourselves
to deeper introspection.
Each of us should take time dai-
ly to get away from the crowd
and find a quiet place in nature
where we can focus upon the
issues of life.
In this quiet time we should
think about who we are, where
we have come from, where we
want to go, what we believe and
what we value.
This inquiry is a deeply per-
sonal one and involves no poli-
tics, either national or other-
wise. If done seriously, it can
lead to personal liberation and a
clearer sense of meaning, pur-
pose and direction.
It empowers us to choose
without the harassment of the
self-serving coercion of others.
We will choose that which rep-

humanity in ways politics

much it tries.


resents our best effort at per-
sonal fulfilment.
Second, we should immerse
ourselves in community and cul-
ture. By culture I do not mean
the narrow confines of
Junkanoo. Culture is much
broader than that. Culture
speaks to the manifold creative


ter how much it tries.
By immersing ourselves in
culture and community we
broaden our perspective and
come to the see the various
forces that impact upon life as
we know it to be. This may lead
us to better problem-solving.

T hird, keep politics in
perspective. Politicians
owe you nothing and you owe
them nothing. Both of you only
owe each other the common
courtesies that each citizen owes
to the other.


The politician does not
deserve to be treated any more
human than anyone else. Any
privilege extended to the

her duties with the maximum
efficiency possible.

at least the ones who are not
crooked, many benefits that
they might otherwise have
enjoyed had they been totally

pursuits.

to be treated any less human
than anyone else.
By the same token, having
been elevated to a high office in
society, the politician does not
deserve to be treated any more
human than anyone else. Any
privilege extended to the politi-
cian is merely to enable him or
her to perform his or her duties
with the maximiiiiir efficiency
possible.

The respect accorded
him is accorded to an
office that will outlive the citi-
zen who occupies it. The politi-
cian is a citizen selected or elect-
ed by other citizens to serve a
public purpose and in modern
societies they are paid to do so.
We can argue whether the pay
is adequate or not.
The fact is that the pay comes
with the job and the politician
accepts that pay as compensa-
tion for the job. Having then
been hired by the employer, the
voters, the employee, the politi-
-cian, owes the employer nothing
but to do the job for which he
or she was hired.
At the end of the contract,
both, I say both, get to evaluate
the terms of the contract and
decide whether they wish a
renewal.
Politics is necessary; it is
important. Yet, it serves the life
beyond it and not itself. When
life beyond politics is max-
imised, it is very likely that life
inpolitics might be optimised.
M6ot 6f uis live beyond ff li
tics, even if we continue to act
as if we are constantly
immersed in it. Perhaps we
should focus on that life more.
In doing so, we may tap into an
_.enormous resource for advanc-
ing both our personal lives and
communities.
Indeed, we might find a pow-
er that most of us only thought
resided in politics.
MOVING SIR STAFFORD

The Cabinet of PM Christie

and replaced him with the

We don't know; our govern-
ment has said nothing.

the first time.
The fact is that other Bahami-
ans left the country on that
occasion, some white and some
black. Were they all racists?
Additionally, in the subse-


PM Christie said while receiv-
ing the Bay Street Redevelop-
ment Report that "everything
in the Bahamas must make
sense."
What sense is there in remov-
ing a white Bahamian male who
engineered the economy that
gave you prosperity unparal-
leled in the region, to replace
him with a white foreign female
from whose colonisation you
sought release some 32 years
ago?
What sense is there in moving
from a financial instrument a
man who undeniably gave great
value to that instrument by his
genius to replace him with a
woman whose rule deprived
you of having an instrument of
your own in the first place?
What sense is there in removing
a Bahamian from a note with-
out any explanation to the soci-
ety as to why you did so?

W ithout any definitive
word from the gov-
ernment, one has to speculate.
My speculation is that the gov-
ernment did it because it
regarded Sir Stafford as a racist.

re-election, many more
Bahamians left the country,
most of them black.
I know some Bahamians who
only returned to the Bahamas in
1992, when the PLP was kicked
out of office. Were these
Bahamians also racists?
I know Bahamians, black
Bahamians, who say that if the
PLP wins again they will leave
the country. Are they racists?
If the Christie administration
really believes that Sir Stafford
was a racist and undeserving of
being on the money, even if his
ideas gave great value to that
money, they should not only
take him off the note but they
should renounce the economic
model he engineered.
Why should we live and pros-
per by the model of a racist?
Let's denounce tourism and
financial services.
Absurd, you say? Then, so is
the act of removing a person
who significantly contributed to
your economic well-being from
a financial instrument that ben-
efited from his ideas.

ment and the police to clamp-
down on this, man. There will
be no illegal in the straw market
without the proper work per-
mit," he said.
Mr Miller said that when
the new straw market is con-
structed, there will be a total
restructuring to ensure that
Bahamians have full control
of the market. "This will be
visually enforced and you will
see the difference," he said.
The minister's comments
come as Bahamian straw ven-
dors claim that the straw mar-
ket has become so saturated
with foreign vendors that it
is questionable whether it can
still be called the country's
national crafts venue.

Craftsmen
The Tribune was told on
Tuesday that the presence of
Haitian and Jamaican crafts-
men has become so over-
whelming that Creole and
patois voices now overpower
the sounds of the market.
"There are more Haitians
working in here than before,"
said Mordretta Bethel, who
has been in the straw busi-
ness for 34 yeais.
"A pile more came back
and they act as though they
have more rights than us,"
she complained.
"We have to pay for our
business licences and also
have to pay national insur-
ance, those who come in and
squat make all the money and


they can move around, we
can't," she said.
Mrs Bethel said Bahamian
stall owners are to blame
because they are the ones hir-
ing foreign workers.
"I blame the Bahamian
stall owners for hiring them,
they don't seem to want to
hire Bahamians and I doubt
that they are paying national
insurance for those workers,"
she said.

Owners
"I think that there are more
Bahamian stall owners, but
there are more Haitians
working at the stalls," she
said.
"The market is run over
with illegals, everywhere you
turn and every day a new
one," claimed another ven-
dor, who chose to remain
anonymous.
Mrs Rolle said that many of
the persons, removed in early
February, are back again.
"I don't really understand
what that was all about
because most of those same
Haitians and Jamaicans are
still here."
"There are about 600 stalls
in here and most of them are
run by foreigners. The
Bahamian stall owners hire,
the foreigners because they
say that they can't find
Bahamians to wvork," she
said.
In February this year sev-
eral traders were removed
from the straw market, either
for being illegal immigrants


or failing to have proper doc-
umentation.
Yesterday, Minister for
Immigration Vincent Peet
told The Tribune that he has
heard the complaints of
Bahamian vendors and had
already instructed officials in
his ministry to investigate the
straw market to determine
which workers are legal and
which are illegal. "When the
minister speaks, the minister
speaks and things should get
done," he said.
"We have moved to inves-
tigate the problem and any
person there illegally will be
taken away. I don't condone
that!" he said. "It is impor-
tant to have a factual count of
who's there legally and ille-
gally because I prefer
not to speculate as this is
something that needs to be
reacted to."

Legally
However, Mr Peet conced-
ed that "because some for-
eigners are legally employed
there by Bahamians to man
their stores there, the prob-
lem is, do we refuse work per-
mits from Bahamians who
apply for them?"
When asked about the new
straw market, the immigra-
tion minister said that "while
the new straw market will be
created for Bahamians, immi-
gration laws are such that if a
Bahamian makes a case and
justifies their application
for a permit, it will be, con-
sidered."

No leadership

bid from Brent

Symonette

FROM page one

tion, Mr Symonette said he had
not entered the leadership con-
test in the interest of "party
unity." He felt that the FNM
also needed more time to recov-
er from its defeat at the polls.
"As I have said before and
will repeat again, I firmly hold
the belief that any Bahamian
should be entitled to run for
the highest office in the land
irrespective of his or her
colour, religion, political
beliefs and so forth," Mr
Symonette said.
The MP said that this
reflects that. the FNM is
undergoing a process of
reviewing the question of the
leadership of the party and
discussing who the right man
or woman will be to lead the
party into the upcoming gen-
eral election.
"This process of review will
continue into the convention
in November and may, in my
opinion, continue thereafter,"
said Mr Symonette.
In recent months former
Education Minister, Dion
Foulkes, announced that he
will be challenging Senator
Tommy Turnquest for the
post of leader at the Novem-
ber convention.
Many had hoped that Mr
Symonette would have offered
himself as party leader to cap-
ture the imagination of voters
and save the party from what
some consider "lackluster"
leadership.
When asked what his opin-
ion of FNM leader Tommy
Turnquest.'s leadership style,
Mr Symonette said that Mr
Turnquest is the leader of the
FNM and will remain the
leader of the FNM until such
time as he leaves office or the
convention says otherwise.
"It is difficult to take over
after a defeat has happened
and we move on," he said.


Foreign bidder 'leading race'


FROM page one


Curti, has previously unofficial-
ly confirmed the sale, stating
that the company was actively
reviewing "bids of interest".
The Tribune has learned
that five groups have entered
bids, two of them Bahamian,
two from Jamaica and one out
of Barbados.
Recently, independent MP
Tennyson Wells and Minister
of Trade and Industry Leslie
Miller have spoken on the
matter, maintaining that if
Shell is to be sold, Bahamians
should be given first prefer-
ence for the sale.
However, the group from
Barbados, Simpson Oil Limit-
ed (SOL), is reported to be
leading the contenders.
* Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Mr Curti said they


are continuing to review these
"expressions of interest", but
no final decision has yet been
made.,
"For legal reasons and com-
mercial confidentiality we can-
not disclose any further infor-
mation on this subject at this
stage," he said.
Unofficially, and speaking
only on condition of anonymi-
ty, a government source with
in-depth knowledge on the
matter said that SOL has
expressed the opinion that
they have "the upper hand"
in the deal as they have other
contracts, and previous deal-
ings with the oil company,
thus cementing'their lead in
the bids.
SOL, headed by Kyffin
Simpson, a leading business
man and entrepreneur in Bar-
bados, bought the operations
of Shell Antilles and Guianas


Limited in more th;in a dozen
Caribbean countries for $200
million in November 2004
Alter signing the deal wilh
Shell's parent company Roval
Dutch/Shell Group, SOL
received possession of Shell's
retail and commercial fuel
business in Barbados, St
Lucia, Antigua, Anguilla,
Guyana, Suriname, Belize, St
Kitts/Nevis, St. Vincent,.
Grenada, British Virgin
Islands, Netherlands Antilles
and Dominica.
This deal covered more
than 100 gas stations across
the region as well as nearly
three dozen distribution
depots.
According to the Associat-
ed Press, one of the highlights
of the agreement is that SOL
will continue to use the Shell
name and logo in its opera-
tions under a trademark
licence agreement, and act as
the only "distributor of Shell
fuels and lubricants in the
region".
According to the source, the
company has already
expressed its concern over the
Bahamas government allow-
ing the sale to go through.
The Tribune was unable to
reach Mr Simpson or a repre-
sentative from SOL for com-
ment yesterday.

Eligible sea tragedy victims


'have received relief

FROM page one

claimed the lives of four people and injured 25 others, said
they are still suffering from the tragedy and have not received
the "help and relief" promised to them by government.
"To this date no assistance in any form or fashion has
been offered to the bereaved families who are still suf-
fering mentally and physically," the letter said.
Mrs Burrows explained yesterday that a special assis-
tance programme for Sea Hauler victims was never put in
place at the ministry.
"There was never such a thing as a 'Sea Hauler pro-
gramme', the people were, however, able to access our
general assistance programmes which are available to
all.
"If they fulfilled the criteria, such as being un-able to
work and support their families, then they received assis-
tance," she said.
Mrs Burrows said that the assistance took the form of
financial aid, food or other d-nations varying from
case to case.
In cases where a person was unable to work due to an
injury sustained during the collision, medical records
proving this claim were required before assistance was
rendered by the ministry, the permanent secretary
said.
Mrs Burrows added that she could not say if any other
form of assistance beyond the ministry's programmes,
was currently being discussed with the victims.
In Tuesday's letter, the victims asked why government
had not delivered any comfort or assistance to their,
stressful situation and why no claims had been brought
against the persons found responsible for the
collision.
Two years ago, during the Emancipation Day weekend
in 2003, the Sea Hauler was heading for the Cat Island
Regatta when it collided with the freight vessel the Unit-
ed Star near Highbourn Cay, Exuma, and Whymss Bight,
Eleuthera.
As a result of the incident, which is considered the
worst maritime disaster in Bahamian history, four people
died, including sisters Brunell Smith Ellis and Brenda
Smith Leslie, Livingston Seymour and Lynden Riley. At
least 25 more were injured.
A special Commission of Inquiry, made up of Sir Dur-
ward Knowles, Justice Joseph Strachan and Leon Smith,
was called to investigate the matter.
The wreck commission ruled that the captains of both
vessels were responsible for the deadly collision.
It was also determined that the Sea Hauler had taken
on eight times more than.the number of passengers it
should have, and that the United Star as many as 31
without authorisation of any kind.
Both vessels, the commission ruled, were also under-
manned, which affected the ability to keep a proper nav-
igational watch and that both captains failed to ensure
that there was a navigational -.atch.

as Caribbean


Edulcaiors in Latin America
and the Caribbean "are not
alone" in facing obstacles in
tleir efforts to improve educa-
tion.
This is the opinion of US Sec-
retary of Education Margaret
Spellings.
"in the United States, we
sIa e the same vision as our


friends in the Western Hemi-
sphere to ensure educational
excellence for every child," she
said.
Mrs Spellings said that by
sharing experiences, the coun-
tries of the region "can strength-
en our efforts to reach the goal
of better education for all."
"In 2002, President Bush


signed into law the No Child
Left Behind Act. which picldgc
record financial support i;
improving testing. accountabil-
ity, professional development;
for teachers and research-basedi
instruction to ensure educa-
tional excellence for every child.
"The No Child Left Belhind
Act has led to higher standards


hi-\ ,Dtuding greater account-
iN it. F'rom school districts in
ih i United States." Mrs
S-pelliins sMid.



Oi August 11 and 12, the
cd-ucaLion ministers of the west-


ern hemisphere will meet in
Trinidad and Tobago, "to
strengthen our hemispheric
commitment of working togeth-
er toward greater, accountabili-
ty in our education systems, and
toward improving the quality
of education throughout the
region," Mrs Spellings said.
"This meeting comes at a
time when all the democratical-
ly elected heads of state of the
Western Hemisphere are
preparing to meet in Novem-
ber at the Summit of the Amer-
icas in Argentina to focus on
creating jobs to fight poverty
and strengthen democratic gov-
ernance," she added.
"Education obviously plays a
key role in accomplishing these
goals. Quality education for all
is a recipe for growth and inno-
vation, economic and social
development, democracy, and
respect for human rights.
"When governments dedicate


their efforts and resources tol
improving the quality of edu-
cation for all their citizens, ,t y
are also investing in the devel-
opment of a workforce withthe
tools to be competitive` in
today's global marketplace.
"Caring about quality educa-
tion for our children is not only
good for their individual futures
- it is good for our nations' eco-
nomic futures," Mrs Spellings
said.
She said the Summits of the
Americas have "laid out a rele-
vant and vital agenda for
improving education in the
region.
"I am confident that the min-
isters of education of the Amer-
icas are equally committed to
achieving the goals that not only
make education a priority.it"buq
countries, but a cornerst6e O :'
our democracies and'a key el'$f
ment in our shared fight against
poverty," she said.


Pirates sequel



is treasure for



Grand Bahama


THE expansive water tank
currently being built to accom-
modate filming of the water
scenes in Pirates of the
Caribbean II and III is expected
to attract even more block-
buster films to Grand Bahama.
The tank, currently under
construction in Freetown,
Grand Bahama, offers the film's
producers the opportunity to
create the illusion of untamed
seas and an unobstructed hori-
zon without the hassle that
comes with filming in the mid-
dle of the ocean.
According to Ministry of
Tourism Film Commission
manager Donna.Mackey, once
Pirates of the Caribbean has
wrapped filming, there will be
opportunities to use the tank to
attract more water-themed films
to the second city.
Currently, there are only
three tanks of this magnitude
in the world and with the close
proximity of Grand Bahama to
the United States, the Bahamas
have an added advantage in
attracting the lion's share of
these blockbuster films.
Currently coming to the end
of a brief hiatus, the filming of
Pirates of the Caribbean is set to
resume in September.
Just before the resumption of
filming however, Disney Studios,
producers of the films, hosted,
in conjunction with the Ministry
of Tourism, a high level part-
ners' conference on Grand
Bahama from August 1 to 5.
Invitees included US Fortune
500 companies like Kellogs,
Volvo and Verizon. The aim of
the conference was to establish
joint marketing opportunities


"S v- se t e*s
SYSIC i


between these companies and
the Disney films.
Since the entrance of Pirates
of the Caribbean, Grand
Bahama has also played host to
smaller budget films and other
film projects.
Just recently, Blue 14, a fam-
ily themed feature by Quantum
Entertainment and Braveart
Films wrapped up shooting on
the island.
The low budget movie that
followed the saga of a teenage
girl from Los Angeles and her
tumultuous relationship with
her father was filmed at loca-
tions like Smith's Point, Bar-
bary Beach and Unexso.
The resumption of filming of
the Pirates sequels is expected
to provide a tremendous boost
to the Grand Bahamian econo-
my.
Ms Mackey noted that before
the brief break, the numbers on
staff for the filming ranged as
high as 300.
Producers of the sequels esti-
mate that during the 80 days of
filming scheduled for Grand
Bahama, around $20 to $25 mil-
lion,will be pumped into the
island's economy.
Walt Disney is also hoping
that further partnering in cross
promotions witb the tourism
boards throughout the Bahamas
could lead to an even higher
economic impact in the form of
increased exposure.
According to the Ministry of
Tourism, it is hoped that Pirates
of the Caribbean II and III will
create destination successes sim-
ilar to those achieved by Hawaii
with Lilo and Stitch or New
Zealand with Lord of the Rings.

Community gathers for road race


* By SIMON LEWIS
Bahamas Information
Services
ALICE TOWN, Bimini -
Minister of Foreign Affairs and
the Public Service Fred Mitchell
challenged Bimini residents to
do all they can to ensure that
prominent members of that
community are remembered,
even after they have passed on.
Mr Mitchell was in Bimini for
the 38th annual Glenda's Road
Race, an event that was started
by his friend, the late Glen
Rolle.
Glen Rolle was one of the
more popular figures to grace
Bimini, having been deeply
involved in sports fishing, base-
ball, softball, basketball, and
track and field. On many occa-
sions he served as player, spon-
sor or manager.
Mr Rolle was also a busi-
nessman, building and operating
a large hotel, restaurants, night-
clubs and other stores on Bimi-
ni.
Affectionately called, "Bam-
bino" and "the Sheriff", Glen
never lost the common touch
or his love for his native Bimini
and its people.
Since Mr Rolle's death a few
years ago, his family, along with
tourism executive Leonard
"Brave" Stuart, have ensured
that the race continues.
Mr Stuart credited the Glen-
da's Road Race as giving a head
start to many of the great ath-
letes that came from Bimini.
"It was something that we
looked forward to and some-
thing that helped me and other
Biminites fb go on to achieve
good things in life through track
and field. So we owe it to Glen


to ensure that this continues and
I want to thank his fa:Inily for
helping to ensure that," Mr Stu-
* art said.
Mr Mitchell told the gather-
ing in the courtyard of Glen's
All My Children Hotel that it
was "once again an honour to
be here in Bimini-for this 38th
annual Road Race and to make
the presentation of these tro-
phies.
"I want to remember my
friend Glen Rolle for the hard
work and dedication he put into
this property and for making
this race a success.
"Glen was a towering figure
in Bimini, and it is important
that when people put some thing
into a community which m akes
the community stronger, we
remember them even after
they're gone," Mr Mitchell said.
The race starts at the gov ern-
ment clinic in Porgy Bay .and
passes through Alice and Bailey
Town, ending at the All My
Children Hotel.
Taking first place overall in
the competition for the second
straight year was John Saundlers
Jr.
Taking the women's op en
crown was Antoinette Rolle.
Other winners include
Laworento Sands in the boys
under-15 category. Latoya Rolle
took the girls under-15 crown.
Kenron Armbrister took first
in the boys under-13 division
while Lawzaliah Sands carted
top honours in the girls unde:r-
13 category.
The race is held annually dur-
ing the first week of August and
is tied to the annual Bimini
Native Fishing Tournament
held during the week of the
August Monday Holiday.

Lack of rooms





could damage,





tourist industry'


* By YOLANDA DELEVEAUX
Senior Business Reporter
DESPITE what could be a record set-
ting year for the industry, the lack of avail-
able room inventory, if not addressed, will
negatively impact the Bahamas, affecting
the creation of jobs and stifling economic
activity, Tourism Minister Obie Wilch-
combe said yesterday.
"We have to expand our inventory if we
are going to focus heavily on bringing
tourists here. Notwithstanding the full
capacity of rooms, it's not going to create
jobs, or generate the economic activity that
we are searching for if we do not expand
our inventory. We still have a lot of work to
do to reach our full potential, but I am opti-
mistic that we will."
While the Nassau/Paradise Island desti-
nation continues to see strong numbers
despite the start of the slowest period of
the year,fFreeport, although its available
inventory is being maximised, continues to
struggle as a result of the continued clo-
sure of the Royal Oasis.
Mr Wilchcombe confirmed that the hotels
in Freeport were near full occupancyand
would remain so for the next six to seven
months, as a result of the filming ()f the
Disney movies, Pirates of the Caribbean II
and III.
He said further that officials were work-
ing to get other rooms on the island and
confirmed that negotiations were being
completed in regard to the Royal Oasis,
saying that interest was very intense and
that there a developer was at the table who
the-government was pleased with.
He noted& however, that even before the
closure of the Royal Oasis, the government
had been looking to get more tourists going
into the island, but that the closure of the
hotel magnified the problem.
The minister said the government was


set to deal with the concentrated area in
downtown Freeport, inclusive of the Inter-
national Bazaar, that was now dormant.
Government officials have met with the
Port Authority, Ministry of Tourism repre-
sentatives in Grand Bahama and owners of
the International Bazaar and have come
up with a working plan.
He said that in the next nine to ten days,
the group should have a new mode of action
in place that they are hopeful will generate
increased activity in the area.
In terms of new business for Grand
Bahama, Mr Wilchcombe said that there


was a recent ground-breaking for new con-
dominiums to be built in West End. Club
Wyndham Viva Fortuna has also broken
ground for the construction of an addition-
al 100 rooms. The Our Lucaya Resort is
also expected to begin work on 200
suites,expected to be completed by next
year.
Mr Wilchcombe said the government has
also received plans from the Ginn Group
for its project in West End'

Bahamas


'should back


the dollar


with gold'


* By YOLANDA
DELEVEAUX
Senior Business Reporter
IN a move to grow its own
economy, the Bahamas could
look to leverage both its his-
torical ties and geographic
position to Florida by taking
on aspects of the state's finan-
cial services and improving
the long-term prospects for
general banking.
Dr Gilbert Morris, execu-
tive director, Landfall. Cen-
tre, said considering the
impact of the coming deluge
of nearly six million retirees
in Florida, if the Bahamas is
able to unhinge its currency
from the US dollar and back
the Bahamian dollar with
gold, and a national Real
Estate Investment Trust
(REIT) using crown lands,
the jurisdiction may be able
to improve the long-term
prospects for savings, com-
.merce and general banking
in Florida, at the same time
improving its. own economic
position.
Addressing students. at
Barry University in Miami,
Florida, on the economic
interdependence between
Florida and the Bahamas, Dr
Morris said the region's hori-
zon continued to inspire a
cautious forecast, with a num-
ber of difficulties seen ahead
for many of the countries of
South America and the
Caribbean largely because
governments are still central
to the investment process and
continue to introduce policies
aimed at controlling their
populations rather than grow-


ing their economies.
He said that if the
economies of South Ameri-
ca begin to decline, then it
would in turn negatively
impact Florida. Even with a
property market that remains
white hot, the level of invest-
ment being generated in the
sunshine state is not based on
fundamental commercial
development.
"Condominiums do not cre-
ate jobs. Florida is not stak-
ing its claim either in technol-
ogy, or shipping or any spe-
cific area. If you reflected on
this against the background of
a real decline in the value of
the US dollar, those fixed dol-
lars that retirees receive will'
purchase less and less. Hoy
ever, if we in the Bahamas cr4
ated an option for you tq
hedge, your savings in Florida
may go further."
Dr Morris explained that a
Bahamian dollar backed by
gold would be a genuine
hedge because of the rela-
tionship between gold and
the US dollar, which sees an
increase in one contrasted by
a decrease in the other.
Declaring that his message
was not a doomsday scenario
in respect of the US econo-
my, Dr Morris said the dollar
value reflects the market, and
that any re-pricing reflected
the genuine market sentiment
concerning the underlying US
economy.
"This would open the
prospects of Bahamian banks
with genuine overseas opera-
tions in Florida. And it would

Mortgage brokers


plan to educate

consumer about


taking out loans


* By YOLANDA
DELEVEAUX
Senior Business Reporter
WITH more than $100 mil-
lion infloans generated by the
Bahamas Mortgage Brokers
Association over the past three
years, association members are
now focused on empowering
lenders by having banking and
lending institutions compete
over their business and by also
providing individuals with a
sound understanding of their
own financial standing.
In an interview with The Tri-
bune, Troy Sampson said that
by educating the consumer
about what steps need to be
taken prior to applying for a
housing loan, they will be taking
steps to transfer the power from
the lender to the borrower.
He said also that, like the US,
where individuals with good
credit scores are rewarded with
lower interest rates, the banking
system in the Bahamas should
change to reward and differen-
tiate between those individuals
who always make their pay-
ments on time, and those who
are delinquent in their pay-
ments, whether by a few days
or weeks.
"When an individual walks
through a broker's door he is
not sitting before a single bank-
ing institution, but has every
commercial bank, insurance
company and even credit union
before them," said James Bost-

"They have walked through a

will get a loan to suit their needs
and one that is in their best
interest.
"Its amazing when you start
something that is great. When
we started out, we wanted to
assist persons in Nassau, now
we're also assisting persons in
the Family Islands and even in
the US. We've gone way
beyond our initial mission."
Along with educating and
empowering the consumer, Mr
Bostwick said the association is
looking to bring all Bahamian
brokers under one umbrella in

Wemco Security Launches

Its Investigations Division














President and CEO of WEMCO Security Limited, Mr Henry Wemyss, is pleased to announce
the launch of WEMCO'S Investigations Divisions under the leadership of Mr Paul Thompson,
a criminal investigations expert.
Mr Thompson joined the Royal Bahamas Police Force in March of 1951 when a Senior Officer
of the Force visited Mr Thompson's native island of Trinidad to recruit young men for the
Force.
From his earliest days as a Police Officer, he became known for his hard work and dedication.
The consistent and intensive training that he received both in The Bahamas and abroad,
coupled with the niany commendations Mr Thompson received from judges, magistrates,
jurors, United States law enforcement agencies, as well as from Her Majesty the Queen,
resulted in his rapid promotion through the ranks of the Police Force. By 1971, he had attained
therank of Assistant Commissioner of Police.
Twenty five years of Paul Thompson's thirty year career in the Police Force were spent in the
Criminal Investigation Division, which was where he received all of his promotions and at
least twenty five commendations and other awards including the Queen's Police Medal, The
Colonial Police Medal, the Queenr's Citation for Brave Conduct, as well as letters of
commendation from J. Edgar Hoover and Williams Webster, Heads of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation (F.B J.) and certificates from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the United
States Secret Service and the United States Customs.
Mr Thompson left the Police Force in January 1981 and became a Security Advisor for
Paradise Island Resorts and Casino (Resorts International Inc.),,where he was quickly promoted
to Corporate Director of Security.
In 1998, Paul Thompson returned to the Royal Bahamas Police Force as Police Training
Officer. He was responsible for the training of recruits, detectives, Police reserves and
Government Security Officers. He also assisted in the development and opening of the
Detective Training School at the Police College.
In 2000, WEMCO was pleased to acquire Mr Thompson's experienced and highly qualified
services as a consultant. A short time later, Paul Thompson joined WEMCO full time as its
General Manager. Mr Thompson's presence is a driving force behind WEMCO's continued
growth and expansion. He is a constant presence in the community, in print and on radio and
television, on matters of crime prevention and crime prevention education, trained as he was
in both of these areas at the Scottish Police College.
Now Mr Thompson moves on to head the newest section of WEMCO, the Investigations
Division. WEMCO has formed this Division because in this 21st century, it is imperative to
know all about the people you interact and do business with, from job applicants to employees
to business associates, to your personal relationships. WEMCO investigations are an objective
process used to discover the facts. Following the intensive investigations, a report will be
submitted to the client, along with WEMCO'S recommendations for a course of action.
WEMCO'S Investigations Division, under the very able guidance of Mr Thompson, will be
able to supply a client with discrete and professional in dept analysis and background
information so that anyone will be better able to make informed, correct decisions in business
and in personal life.

"Our collective contribution
to the banking, insurance and
credit union sector has exceeded
the $100 million mark in a very
short time. Against this back-
drop; the association seeks to
define itself as a burgeoning
niche which will work symbioti-
cally with its industry partners to
the benefit of our mutual clients."

Website

The association is expected
to roll out shortly a website that
will outline its services.
In another step to secure their
place in the Bahamas' lending
landscape they are also looking
to create formal linkages with
the Florida Brokers Associa-
tion. In the US, between 60 -65
per cent of all mortgages are
generated through brokers and,
to the extent that they continue


to give good service and prove
ourselves, Mr Sampson said,
they are hopeful that a similar
environment will develop in the
Bahamas.
For Bahamians looking to
access the necessary funding to
obtain a home, a lack of infor-
mation and basic knowledge is
often the obstacle that prevents
them from realising their goal.
In an effort to address this
situation, the association will
publish a series of articles on
how to prepare and successfully
apply for a housing loan. They
will also look to use other media
forms, including radio and tele-
vision talk shows, to get their
message out to the public.
Another area that the asso-
ciation will address is the issue
of self-employed persons, who
often have a difficult time prov-
ing their income.
A special effort will also be
made to reach hotel workers,

'More hotel rooms n


FROM page one
director of operations for Holi-
day Inns in the Bahamas, said
the Holiday Inn Sunspree on
Paradise Island was currently
enjoying a 90 per cent occu-
pancy level. He said the last
half of August is expected to
dip, however, with Florida
schools going in earlier than
usual.
"We're still exceeding last
year's numbers certainly. I
think most of the hotels are
finding the rate is up and it's
probably through the rate how
they are earning an increase in
usage."
For September, Mr Kappeler
said the month is looking
favourable, with the hotel
expected to post a 50 per cent
occupancy level, which is an
increase over last year, coming
in at 34 per cent.
Beyond September, howev-


er, Mr Kappeler said it would
be hard to go further because
the booking pace remained soft
past the 90-day period.
One concern he identified
was that Atlantis was believed
to be offering a rate of $99 per
night on a limited basis for late
August through September.
Admitting that this could be
devastating for other hotels on
Paradise Island, Mr Kappeler
said he remained upbeat, and
that in terms of rates, they were
running $20 to $25 over what
they saw last year.
Jacob Asher, director of
operations, British Colonial
Hilton Hotel, said August had
been relatively good to this
point, but was expected to slow
down as schools in the US open
earlier and families travel less.
Mr Asher said that overall,
occupancy was better than last
year and the hotel was project-
ing to finish August in the upper


70's. September, a traditionally
slow month, was being forecast
to finish at 61 per cent, an
improvement over 2004, when
September finished at 56 per
cent. Looking to October,
occupancy is expected to
bounce back, with the hotel
reaching into the upper 70s low-
er 80s.
According to Mr Asher, the
hotel's rates have improved by
$10 to $12 over last year,
although in August rates tend to
be lower than the first six
months of the year because
there are fewer business peo-
ple travelling.
Overall, however, the hotel
has had a good year in terms of
rate, occupancy and food and
beverage and expects to con-
tinue the trend for the remain-
ing months of the year.

Chief Executive Officer

Our client, a small but well established and thriving
bank and trust company based in Nassau, is seeking
a CEO to take over the day-to-day management of the
operations of the company and its wholly owned
subsidiaries. The CEO will have full P&L and
administrative responsibility in respect of existing
businesses but will not be responsible for business
development, the responsibility for which will remain
with the Chairman. The CEO will also be the company's
principal liaison officer with the regulators.

The candidate must be able to demonstrate solid, hands
on, management, administrative and operational
experience in an international financial institution, in
various locations. The candidate will almost certainly
have achieved managing director or similar level in a
subsidiary or branch operation. In particular, experience
living and working in Latin America will be a significant
advantage. The candidate must have business fluency
in Spanish and/or Portuguese given the company's
market focus, and a part of the interview will be
conducted in one or other of these languages or both
as appropriate.

In addition, to his/her track record, the candidate will
be well educated and will most probably have a business
degree or other professional qualification. The job will
be based in Nassau but some travel will be required.

The company offers a competitive base salary
commensurate with the candidate's qualifications and
experience, and performance incentives, as well as
other benefits.

Please send your CV to Jonathan Ginder, Director,
Human Capital Solutions to: exec@hcscayman.com -

FROM page one
facilitate a more efficient eco-
nomic exchange between the
Bahamas and Florida, since
Bahamians would have an
increased incentive to shop in
Florida with a new gold-backed
currency likely to maintain a
value 20-30 per cent higher than
the dollar. Put simply, it would
mean that for the Bahamian his
new dollar would buy more in
Florida, and for the Florida
merchant and savings account
holders, a higher rate of inter-
est."


Meanwhile, Dr Morris said
the idea of government owner-
ship of corporations, such as the
Bahamas Telecommunications
Company (BTC) and Bahama-
sair, are over and that successive
governments of the Bahamas
have accepted that the age of
government involvement in
such areas was past.
He said that part of the prob-
lem, as with most governments,
was speed and a difficulty acting
before the drainage of asset val-
ues.
In this age of advanced tech-
nologies, he said, governments
can no longer afford to wait
years to privatise without drain-
ing most of the value from the
asset.
"If you take telephone com-
panies, almost all of them,
everywhere are worthless,
because for less that a quarter
of a million dollars one can
make a global communications
company from scratch. In small-
er nations the case is even more
problematic because, there is
no scalable market."


Speaking about Bahamasai i
Dr Morris said that while the*
airline's management was doing
an excellent job working with
what limited resources they had,
he could not see a viable reason
to have Bahamasair stand
alone, because it would be
killed either by international
competition or by a lack of a
scalable market at home.
He said also that because
Bahamasair is so small, it would
likely pay more for everything,
which would in turn increase its
costs, adding that a similar sce-


nario would likely happen with
BTC.
"Governments in similar sit.
uations subsidise these enter-
prises, but it will get them irl
the end, and the longer they
hold on to it, the lower and low4
er its value."
He suggested that if Bahamal
sair is permitted to remain id
existence, it should become .
regional multi-platform travel
services company and licensed
its air routes to smaller airlines.
and also look to form a join
venture with Bahamas Ferries,

ito final

Senior Sports Reporte,

HELSINKI, Finland: When the
men's 400 metre final is run on Fri-
day, Chris Brown wants the rest of
the field to know that he is a con-
tender for a medal.
Competing in the last of three
semifinal races on Wednesday night
in the rain, Brown wanted to make
a statement to Olympic champion
and world leader Jeremy Wariner
from the United States, coming in a
close second in 45.67 to his arch-
rival's winning time of 45.65 for the
third and sixth fastest qualifying
times.
The last time the two met in
Europe earlier this month, they
went head-to-head with Wariner
taking the edge as well. But with a
full day's rest before the final is run
here on Friday at 2.35pm Brown
said the results will be a little dif-
.. .. ......ferent.


Advance
Brown; one of two Bahamians
to advance through the rounds, said
his intention was to take Wariner to
the. Wire and he made sure of that
when he took the early lead in the
race as the rain started to pour
down.
But, on the home .stretch,
Wariner,,the US national champion,
was a little stronger as he was able
to surge back and held off Brown,
the national runner-up, at the finish
line.
Brown's gallant run came within
the hour as Tonique Williams-Dar-
ling was celebrating her gold medal
victory in the women's 400 metres.
Brown, now training with
Williams-Darling in the Steve Rid-
dick camp in North Carolina, said
he was elated watching her run to
victory, but it has only inspired him
to come out and do what he has to
do.
"It inspired me a lot, but, at the
same time, I already knew that she
ran her race, she got her pie,"
Brown reflected. "I just had to con-
'' \trol my adrenaline, go outihere and
run my race I've been running all
year.
"Hopefully it will take me
through the same procedure and
hopefully we get the same coach,
so we should get the same results."
With a day off, Brown said he's
rt yesterday. going to go back to the Athletes'
'hoto: Felipe MajorITribuite staff Village and get his rest.

weather the storm


HELSINKI, Finland: Forget the
rain and the cold that has
almost spoiled the 10th World Cham-
pionships.
Tonique Williams-Darling erased all
of the complaints about "wet and chilly"
Finland when she turned in one of the
greatest performances ever, coming
from behind in the final 50 metres to put
her stamp of approval on the title of
the world's best female 400 metre run-
ner.
Wednesday night will go down as an
historic one for Williams-Darling, but I
know I will share my own special
moment after my collegiate Stanley
Mitchell gave me.the huge Bahamian
flag to pass to the champion to brace
around her as she took her victory lap at
the Olympic Stadium.
The rain continued to pour as it had
been doing all week, but Williams-Dar-
ling's performance was worth standing
out for.
And if that wasn't enough, Chris
Brown came right back and almost
stunned the Olympic champion as they
went head-to-head in the semifinal of
the men's 400. What a final that will
.turn out to be on Friday night.
Whether it rains or not, it doesn't
matter.

Wednesday night has made up
W for those. nights that we got
soaked from the pouring rain falling
from the moment the championships
got started with the opening ceremonies
last Saturday night.
That is why these will be remembered
as the "Winter" World Championships
of 2005.
While the competition has been stel-
lar, it's been a little difficult at times to
keep up with the pace because of the
constant flow of rain that has slowed
many of us down as we tried to seek
shelter.
Unfortunately for the athletes,

athletes.
The weather has been so unpre-
dictable that you don't know what type
of clothing to wear when you leave your
hotel. And even when you've stepped
out dressed for the weather, the con-
stant flow of rain makes you want to
go back to your hotel to change.


So for the third consecutive champi-
onships, Sturrup was denied an oppor-
tunity to ascend the podium to receive a
medal although she was eventually
given the bronze after the 2003 cham-
pionships in Saint Denis, Paris, France
following American Kellie White's
stripping of the gold.


"Wednesday night will go down as

OPINION




they've had, to endure the cold, the wind
and even the rain to compete.
If it wasn't for the heavy showers and
thundering that knocked out some of
the timing equipment, necessary to keep
track of the performances by the world's
best athletes, we probably would have
been sick from having to run the 150
metres from the Main Press Centre to
the Olympic Stadium to interview our


Despite that, there's been a lot of
action to take in from the Bahamas' 19-
member team.
Although we got off to a'disappoint-
ing start with national champion Der-
rick Atkins in the men's 100 metres first
round heat, everybody else competing
has given us hope of getting closer to
our first medal.
The anticipation swelled when Chan-
dra Sturrup marched on the track in
the light rain to run in the finals of the
women's 100. For the majority of the
race, she had our hopes high until the
three medalists surged from behind.
If only Sturrup had stayed tall at the
end.
She gave it a gallant effort.
Lauryn Williams from the United
States, Veronica Campbell from
Jamaica and Christine Aaron from
France just wanted it a little more. They
stood tall in the end in the rain as the
medalists.


But there's nothing like being pre-
sented with a medal.
Just ask Tonique Williams-Darling,
who savoured that opportunity again
this year after battling back down the
stretch to leave world leader Sanya
Richards looking at silver and Ana
Guevara, the Mexican defending cham-
pion, having to settle for the bronze.
The performance by Williams-Dar-
ling has certainly once again inspired
the team.
Now it's up to Leevan Sands in the
men's triple and long jumps, Chris
Brown in the men's 400 and Lavern
Eve in the javelin before we switch our
attention to the men's 4 x 400 and the
women's 4 x 100 relay teams.
Medals are hard to come by, so, what-
ever we, get, it will surely help to make
up for all the rain that has poured on us
since the championships got started.
But Williams-Darling certainly
brought us some sunshine.

Senior Sports Reporter

HELSINKI, Finland: Jack-
ie Edwards came so close to
making the final cut of the
top eight in the women's long
jump final on Wednesday at
the Olympic Stadium.
But she fell just short by
one centimetre.
Going into her third and
final jump in the final,
Edwards needed to jump 21-
feet 11/4-inches or better to
surpass Great Britain's
Sotherton Kelly and join her
American training partner
Grace Upshaw.
Instead, Edwards matched
Kelly's best of 21-1. By virtue
of doing it .first, Kelly was
awarded the eighth and final
spot for the final three jumps
and Edwards was eliminated.
Afterwards Edwards said,
"I did my best out there
today. I just came up short
by one centimetre after I was
tied for eighth place.
"So I'm disappointed with
myself because, on any given

day, I could jump 6.43 (21-
11/14).
"I don't know what to say.
I had a good year this year. I
can't be disappointed with


that. But this will help to set
me up to get ready for Com-
monwealth Games next year.
Hopefully I will have a good
performance there."
Self-trained with the two-
time American champion
Upshaw in California, the 34-
year-old national champion
and Colinalmperial Senior
Central American and
Caribbean Championships'
bronze medalist got off to a
shaky start in the competi-
tion.

Scratched
On her first jump, Edwards
only leapt 20-2, which had
her in 11th spot. She
scratched her second attempt,
which left her in that same
position. But, realising that
she needed to dip deep for
one last big jump, she almost
'did it.
It was just short of getting
her over the hump and into
the final eight, which would
have guaranteed her a trip to
the' IAAF World Athletics


Final in Monaco from Sep-
tember 9-10.
Edwards, in her first World
Championship final, waited
around the track to watch the
remainder of the final as
Tianna Madison, the colle-
giate champion from the Uni-
versity of Tennessee, repre-
senting the United States
claimed the gold with a per-
sonal leap of 22-7 1/4.
Tatyana Kotova, the 2004
Olympic bronze medalist
from Russia, collected the sil-
ver with 22-3 1/4 over hep-
tathlon silver medalist Eunice
Barber from France picked
up the bronze with 22-2 1/4.
"I knew that I was capable
of being in that final eight,"
Edwards said after watching
the final. "So it was hard to
watch. But you can't second
guess yourself. It's all you can
do. It's not that I didn't give
it my best. I was ninth, ninth
in the world. I can't be
upset."
Instead, Edwards was able
to put a smile on her face
after she also got to watch


Tonique Williams-Darling
storm from behind to snatch
the gold away from Ameri-
can world, leader Sanya
Richards in the women's 400
metres final.

Elated
Edwards was just as elated
as every other Bahamian,
including Minister of Youth,
Sports and Culture Neville
Wisdom, who waited patient-
ly for Williams-Darling to
come through the tunnel after
being interviewed by the var-
ious international television
announcers.
"She just went back and
forth and back forth in the
final 100," said Edwards, a
former sprinter. "She just
showed her determination. I
mean that was great to
watch."
But Edwards said it would
have been even greater for
her if she had been in the
final eight and everybody
could have watched her per-
form for a medal as well.,


HELSINKI, Finland:
Dominic Demeritte went
out at the Olympic Stadium
and gave it his best in his bid
to reach the men's 200
metres final.
In the quarters, Demeritte
just barely missed a berth
into thesemifinal, ending up
seventh in the second of four
heats.
The national champion
and record holder, coming
off a bronze medal perfor-
mance at the Colinalmperial
Senior Central American
and Caribbean Champi-
onships, ran 21.25 seconds in
the heat that was won by
American Tyson Gay in the
fastest qualifying time of
20.64.
Demeritte, the 27-year-
old final champion of the
World Indoor 200 metres in
Budapest, Hungary last
year, just missed advancing
to the semis after he finished
18th overall in the standings.
The first three from each
heat and the four fastest
times advanced. He was just.
three spots shy of getting in.'
Having competed very lit-
tle on the international
scene, Demeritte said he felt
his "legs just weren't there
today and the race kind of
sums up my season. It wasn't
going the way I had
planned."
After his performance'
here, Demeritte said the
only thing left for him to do'
is "regroup and plan for next
year."
He knew that he would
have had to run under the
21-second barrier to be
assured of a place in the
semi's.
But Demeritte said he
knew that running in the
windy conditions and the
light rain "had a major fac-
tor" on his performance.
"The facilities are kind of
hilly and they're spaced out,
so all of that had an effect,"
he noted. "I can't make any
excuses, this is top level
competition and I just have:,
to be ready."
This year on the whole,
Demeritte said he had put
himself at a disadvantage,
trying to dabble into the
quarter. But after he
realised that it didn't work
out, he insists that he will
continue to just concentrate.
on the sprints.
"I'm going back to the
sprints because I really don't
feel the speed that I felt last.
year or the year before," he
reflected.
"I'd still keep my options
open for the 400 before I
retire, but right now I want
to put down a good 200
before I retire."
The St. John's College
and North Carolina gradu-
ate said he definitely intend
to call it quits after the 2008
Olympic Games in Beijing,
China.
But, before his work is
done here in Helsinki, he
will stay available to run if
he gets the call for the men's
4 x 400 relay.


Sands leaps into





long jump finals


M By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
HELSINKI, Finland: With the wind blow-
ing hard and the rain threatening, Leevan
'Superman' Sands wasted little time on the
runway in the men's long jump at the 10th
IAAF World Championships.
The 23-year-old flag carrier during the offi-
cial opening ceremonies, needed just one jump
on Wednesday to leap into the finals today,
starting at 1pm ET at the Olympic Stadium.
He landed in the pit with a season's best of
56-feet, 5 3/4-inches.

Reporters
Not taking any chances, Sands told
reporters in the mixed zone under the tun-
nel: "All I could say is this is a different year,"
referring to last year when he missed mak-
ing the finals at the Olympic Games in Athens,
Greece.
"I had to work on some things I had to deal
with, come back, first jump. I feel great."
The qualifying round of the event was orig-
inally set for Tuesday night, but was post-
poned due to the heavy thunder and light-
ning. It seemed to have been an omen for


Sands, who preferred not to compete in the
morning as he did yesterday.
"I was ready to jump last night (Tuesday),"
he indicated. "I usually like to jump in the
night. Usually in the morning times, it's kind
of hard for me. But if I have to jump in the
mornings, I will jump."
Two years ago at the Worlds in Saint Denis,
Paris, France, Sands .had to qualify in the
morning. He went on to secure a bronze in the
final, the Bahamas' only medal at the cham-
pionships until American sprinter Kellie White
was stripped of her gold and Chandra Sturrup
moved up from fourth for the bronze.
This year, after the qualifying round was
postponed, Sands said he went to the Ath-
letes Village and made up in his mind that "I
had to qualify and make the final."
The national record holder, who won the
Colinalmperial Senior Central American and
Caribbean Championships last month at
home, was the first of the four automatic qual-
ifiers out of a field of 27.
As the 11th of 15 competitors in Group A,
Sands' name sprang to the top of the list when
the standings were posted on the screen inside
the stadium.
It was a great feeling for Sands who admit-
ted that "I asked the Lord to help me to just
get this first jump out the \vay. I just wanted to


hit it on the first jump and go home and get
some rest. I thank him for that."
Three jumps later, American Walter Davis
became the second automatic qualifier with a
leap of 56-0 1/2. But before the round was
completed, Cuban Yoandri Betanzos, the final
competitor in the group, surged to the top of
the list with a distance of 57-1.

Qualifiers
Only Brazil's Jadel Gregorio, who did 56-5
1/4 to lead the Group B, would join the list of
automatic qualifiers, leaving Sands at num-
ber two behind Betanzos.
Sands knows that competition will be tough
with Romanian world leader Marian Oprea
right in the mix as the fifth best qualifier.
But he feels his job is half way done.
"I have to make another final. I have to
get into the top eight," he said about the final.
"It's all about making the top eight. After
that, anything can happen from there."
Considering himself as one of the best in the
world, Sands said he deliberately decided not
to jump too many meets this year so that he
could be "well rested" to compete in
Helsinki. So far, he's right where he wants to
be.

hopefully come home a lot faster.
"I felt good coming off the final turn, but I tried to push on the
home stretch. I thought I could hold it, but I couldn't. She ran
a great race and I'm happy for her." ,"
Having lost to Williams-Darling at the Olympics last year,
Guevara said she knew that she would be the woman to beat
and she was just happy to see her do it again. %
"I'm happy for Tonique and I'm happy for Sanya. It was@a
great finish," Guevara stated. "The end was very enjoyabLt.
Tonique has the two titles now, but I'm going to continue with

HELSINKI, Finland: You
couldn't ask for a better per-
formance from Tonique
Williams-Darling.
She was not going to let the
inclement weather stop her
from storming back in the final
50 metres to force American
pre-race favourite Sanya
Richards into second place at
the 10th IAAF World Champi-
onships.
Minister of Youth, Sports and
Culture Neville Wisdom called
her "simply the best" as she
surged to the front to clinch the
gold medal in the women's 400
final on Wednesday night in a
season's best of 49.55 seasons.

Fastest

Richards, who had posted the
world's fastest time in beating
Williams-Darling in their only
pre-World meeting this year,
just didn't have anything left in
the tank as Williams-Darling
powered back to win, carting
off the $60,000 for first place
from the IAAF.
Richards had to settle for a
disappointing second in 49.74
for the silver over defending
world champion Ana Guevara,
who ended up with the bronze
in a season's best of 49.81 and a
$20,000 prize.
While it's hard for her to fath-

om winning back-to-back
Olympic Games and Worlds
titles, Williams-Darling said this
is just the tip of the iceberg for
her because "there's always
championships that I haven't
won like the Commonwealth,
World Indoors and World Cup,
so I want to be in those com-
petitions and be in the mix."
She not only was in .the mix
here, Williams-Darling set her-
self apart from the rest of the
field by putting on the finish-
ing kick to leave the field
behind in a finish to the tape
that will long be remembered.
Running out of lane six,
Williams-Darling said she saw
"Sanya Richards coming off the
curve. We were basically neck
and neck, but she had a little
bit more of an advantage
because she was in lane three.
"But I just stayed in there and
I knew that I was the strongest
competitor. So once I didn't let
the race get too much out of
control, I would have been able
to come out with the win."
It was a victory that put the
Bahamas on the medal table,
sitting tied for eighth place with


Ecuador, Lithuania, Qatar and
Uganda, at this year's champi-
onships. It was also the fourth
gold medal ever won by the
Bahamas in the history of the
championships.
At 29-years-of-age, Williams-
Darling will also go down in his-
tory as the first Bahamian to
duplicate an Olympic gold
medal performance at the
Worlds, leaving her more than
elated over her feat.

History

She noted: "I don't think it's
ever been done in the history
of the Bahamas, so this is a his-
torical moment for me as an
athlete and for us as a country."
Coming down the home
stretch, Williams-Darling knew
that only Richards stood in her
way of her historic perfor-
mance. But it was the final 50
metres that she had her own
destiny in her hands.
As she reflected on her feat,
Williams-Darling said, "It can't
get any better than this, but I
will just study new goals with

"I know that they are really

to tears as she reflected on her


performance, said it was the
biggest race of the season.

'Some ministers



exploit our people



for personal gain'


* By CLEMENT JOHNSON
A bout two
weeks ago a
young man
passed by my
office and we
chatted for awhile. During the
course of the conversation he
asked my advise on a matter
concerning his wife and their
church.
He said ,that they both
attended a church service in
the Grove area. The preacher
was from out of town.
Preacher
The preacher told the con-
gregation that God had asked
him to collect some money that
night. He called on 10 people
to bring $100 to the altar if they
wanted to receive a special
blessing. According to the
young man at least 12'people,
including his wife, went up and
gave $100. Later the reverend
asked for 20 persons to come
forward and donate $50. The
strategy that he used on this
group was that they were to
Plant a-seed. Agairnthis was
met with approval, because
about thirty $50 came forth.
Again his wife was one of those
who planted a seed of that
amount.
"My boi," he said, "I thik
summit wrong wit' da way dese
pastors and preachers askin'
people for all dere moneys
dem. And check dis, she come
askin' me for money to help
her make up her asue, cause
she gave de money to dat for-
eign pastor. I tell that daughter
to go to da pastor and ask him


fa her change, not me, papa.
It's wrong cause all of these
pastors, ministers and priests
livin' large off we poor people.
They driving fancy cars and liv-
ing in big house, like they some
celebrities."
In a matter of a few minutes
that night, between the "spe-
cial blessing" and the "planting
of the seed" the foreign preach-
er had collected $2,200 from
62 members of the congrega-
tion.
Disturbed by his comments I
called a preacher friend of
mine, who agreed in principle
with what the young man had
told mne.
"It's shameful," he said, "the
way some ministers exploit our
people for personal gain. My
take is once you would have
put in your tithes, the constant
begging should not become the
norm. Yes, there are times that
a special offering is needed for
some project, but nowadays it
seems as if many ministers are
becoming too much like the
TV evangelist or the Black'
American Preacher, always
asking for money and using
religious psychology oir the -
congregation, telling them the
more 'you give the more you
will receive'. Yes, it's impor-
tant to give to the church, but
not to the detriment of one's
family."
Excessive
"I do not believe that minis-
ters should be given an exces-
sive amount of money by
parishioners for their anniver-
saries, because they are getting
a hefty salary. My pastor, for


example, collects a monthly
salary from our church of $5000
-$60,000 a year. That's a lot
of money, plus we help them
with the mortgage, pay the chil-
dren's school fees, and many
other miscellaneous expenses.
It's not fair for any pastor or
church to place heavy taxes on
their members. In America
when people give money to the
Church they use it as a tax
write off, but it does not hap-
pen like that in the Bahamas,"
he said.
*loney

In a book I read by Dale
Robbins entitled, "What peo-
ple ask about the church",
there was a section that high-
lighted this problem. Mr. Rob-
bins wrote that it was neces-
sary for the church to have a
certain amount of money to
function, because it is expen-
sive to run all of the church
programmes, the radio and the
ministry. He also suggested
that people are to be sensible in
their giving, and recommended
the following guidelines:
Establish a "budget" -
Determine.what you can afford
to give to other ministries, after
you've given to your local
church. Budgeting is very bib-
lical. Jesus taught us to "count
the cost," not to overextend
ourselves. (Luke 14:28-29)
Look for ministries with a
proven track-record Seek for
evidence of sound beliefs,

Church celebrates Feast of Saints Joachim


and Anne with 'heavenly' service


* By CLEMENT JOHNSON
ST Anne's Parish Church in the historic
community of Fox Hill celebrated the
Feast of Saints Joachim and Anne at the
weekend with a "heavenly" service.
The church was filled to capacity with
worshippers who gathered to honour their
patron saints.
The High Pontifical Mass was presided
over by Father Crosley N Walkine, Rector
of the Church.
Following the Introit hymn, the kneelers
were blessed, and the opening sentence
recognised that St Anne was the mother of
Mary, the mother of Jesus.
"0 God who gave grace to your blessed
Saint Anne and made her worthy to bear
the mother of your only begotten son: mer-
cifully grant that we, who on this day
observe her festival, may by her interces-
sion find favour in your sight."
The feast of St Anne has long been
established in the Christian tradition. Saints,
Anne and Joachim are known as the
Patron saints of grandparents, because
they received a special gift from God to


be the parents of Mary, the mother of God..
The solemnity of this service was not to
be underscored. The first reading was tak-
en from Proverbs 31:10-31, which spoke
about the importance of finding a good
wife.
The Epistle from Romans 8: 28-30
affirmed the belief of a Christian, that in
everything God works for good with those
who love him, who are called according
to his purpose.
Treasures
In the gospel from Matthew 13:44-51
Jesus likened the kingdom of heaven to
treasures hidden in a field.
At the end of the mass.Father Walkine,
during the Choral Blessing, asked God to
watch over the congregation and admon-
ished them to go in peace. "Never be
afraid. God will go with you each hour of
every day."
The service was described as "heavenly"
by one parishioner.
In the Church bulletin there was an
account by the late Theodore Roosevelt,


former president of the United States,
regarding his sentiments of the importance
of going to church:
"In this actual world, a Churchless com-
munity, a community where man has aban-
doned and scoffed at or ignored their reli-
gious needs, is a community on the rapid
downgrade. It is perfectly true that occa-
sional individuals or families may have
nothing to do with church or with religious.
practices and observances and yet maintain
the highest standard of spirituality and of
ethical obligation. But this does not affect
the case in the world as it now is, any more
than that exception men and women under
exceptional conditions have disregarded
the marriage tie without moral harm to
themselves interferes with the larger fact
that such disregard ifat all common means
the complete moral, disintegration of the
body politic.
"Church work and the church atten-
dance mean the cultivation of the habit of
feeling some responsibility for others and

Ask your pastor for counsel or

Do your homework -
Check up on ministries and see

Make commitments care-

Give to God, not to man -
Always be sure that, in your

mad at ministers or become
offended at their appeals. Just
smile and say 'no'.

St Paul's Baptist Church's youth




ministry celebrates July as 'Rally




Around Young People Month'


The Youth Min-
istry SURGE
(Save United
Righteously
Growing Every-
day) of St Paul's Baptist
Church celebrated July as
"Rally Around Young People
Month".
In the first two weeks of
July, during the church's
Vacation Bible School, activi-
ties were held, including aca-
demic, Bible and drama com-
petitions.
Banquet
The camp closed with a
bang on Friday, July 29 with a
banquet honouring young
people who have made signif-
icant contributions to the
Youth Ministry, specifically
Burnee Dorsett and Aarron
Sweeting. Supportive parents
were also honoured, includ-
ing Maureen Gardiner, Char-
maine Lockhart, Kimberley
Deleveaux, Bernice Harris
and Melanie Rahming.
SURGE's mandate is to
"evangelise" and has several
arms the Children's Depart-
ment, the Single's and Mar-
riage Ministry, the Youth
Choir, the Dance Team, the
Young People's Fellowship
and the Joyful Sound March-
ing Band.
The church's youth pastor,
George Bodie is focusing on
training its youth leaders to
meet the challenges of today's
young people.
Mr Bodie said that in the
not too distant future, the min-
istry will be offering coun-

WHENEVER I visit Inagua,
I see the lovely flamingoes and
recall how what they eat affects
the colour they become. When
we feed on the things of God it
is equally visible.
Our Lord has a moment
when all of his former glory is
revealed before the three dis-
ciples chosen to accompany
him on the Mount of Transfig-
uration. His clothes are a daz-
zling white and the brightness is
almost unbearable. He is both
human and divine and it is
most obvious what is within
him all along: "And while he
was praying, the appearance of
his face changed and he
became dazzling white" (Luke
9: 29 NRSV).
Communion
We were intended to reflect
God's glory also, and the shin-
ing face of Moses is in direct
contrast to the shadows of
darkness that are reflected on
the faces of those possessed
with evil spirits, for example.
During his intimate commu-
nion with God, Moses is trans-
formed as he prays and it
remains even after he returns
to the people: "Moses did not
know that the skin of his face
shone because he had been
talking with God" (Ex. 34: 29
NRSV).
What is it that is most visible
on our faces most of the time?
Is it the dark clouds of anger,
the greenish tint of jealousy or
greed, the purple of passion,
the shadows of depression or
some other hue that signifies a
soul that is sick?
Leanne Payne's book enti-
tled, "The Crisis of Masculini-
ty", is one that I highly recom-
mend. I have not completed it
but I am already moved by the
healing stories portrayed in the
early chapters. She celebrates
the gift of a loving godly father

who is able to affirm the sexu-
al identity of both male and
female children with appropri-
ate affection, attention and
affirmation. Many people are
wounded from very early in
childhood and carry the scars
for life unless transformed by
God. Others inherit character-
istics that haunt them without
them comprehending their ori-
gin or true impact.
When we come before God
with honest confession of
acknowledged sin, we are able
to be united with Christ in a
wonderful way. As we pray for
revelation of other forgotten
impediments to spiritual
growth, the Holy Spirit often
brings them to remembrance.
There is power in prayer and
the Enemy finds countless ways
to keep us from listening to
God and speaking to God with
the veil of self-centredness lift-
ed.
There is a very real sense


that we cannot be loved and
appreciated when we are so
disfigured by selfishness and
the suffering of unconfessed
sin. Others see this inner dis-
figurement and are repelled by
our obnoxious forms of self-
defense or self-hatred.
What can we do? We can call
out to God for healing and
wholeness and feed on holy
things.
Restoring
God is desirous of restoring
us to our former glory.
The Lord has walked the
path of earthly sorrows to place
a hunger for transfiguration in
our hearts.
The Holy Spirit is within us
to make us more transparent
as we radiate the divine Pres-
ence within us. Allow the Lord
Jesus to unveil your true inner
beauty and offer hope of help
to others.

____ ____... i ifQ'


* By FATHER JAMES
MOULTRIE
"Take heart, it is I; have no fear."
(Matt. 14:27)
aken literally, today's Gospel
story of Peter trying to walk
on the water has no relevance
to us. But, if taken symboli-
cally, as Matthew clearly
intended, it makes a lot of sense. The boat
represents the church; the winds and the
waves represent the persecution which the
early Christians faced. Jesus is not with us
physically, but like the early Christians, in
our hour of need He makes His presence
very real and felt among us. Just as He
calmed their fears that day on the sea. He
calms our fears and brings peace to us.
Seen in this context, the story has great
relevance and significance for us today.
Some Christian people believe that if
they have faith, life will be smooth sailing
for them. But don't fall for that, because
that is not so. Faith does not shield us from
the hard knocks of life. We know that the
closer, we draw the God the greater will be
the effort of Satan to discourage us. We
know that Elijah was undoubtedly a man
of faith. But because of his position on
idolatry, Queen Jezebel wanted to kill him.
So he fled to the desert and took refuge
in a cave. There in the cave he just wanted
to die. But then in that cave he had an
experience of the presence of God, and
he was able to go on.
We see the same thing in the lives of
the early Christians. They too were people
of faith, but when they encountered per-
secution they wanted to give up. But once
they experienced the presence of God,
they were able to go on. They thought that
the Lord had abandoned them. On the
contrary, when we are most fearful or faith-
less, that is when God draws near to us to


* FATHER JAMES MOULTRIE

"When in spiritual
doubt, reach for Jesus

you. As I write this
meditation, I am
actually on the same
Sea in Israel. The
story is real."
Father J Moultrie


strengthen us. We can learn a lot from the
Gospel story today.
The example of Peter is especially
enlightening. The story of Peter sinking
and being saved by Jesus is a message for
all of us. While it is a reference to Peter's
failure during the Passion of Jesus, it also
refers to his restoration after the resurrec-
tion of Jesus. Initially Peter was full of
faith as he sets out on the water. But then
doubt and cowardice came over him and
he began to sink. Jesus had to rescue him.
Peter represented the typical disciple of
Jesus in his time and in ours. It is com-
forting for us that at times the disciples of
Jesus were weak and fearful. In other
words, they were just like us. Peter was
caught between faith and doubt. It is then
that we have to turn to Jesus for help. If we
never feel ourselves going under, then we
may never-know the rescuing power of
God.
Faith does not save us from the trials
and tribulations of life. What it does give us
is strength to face them. We need that faith
when trouble strikes. It is not we who keep
the faith, it is the faith that keeps us!
Mahatma Ghandi once said, "A person
with a grain of faith in God never loses
hope".
Peter shows us the power of faith. He
shows us what Jesus does for His people
when they lose faith and are buffeted by
the storms of life. To those with faith, Jesus
is not a ghost from the past, but the Son of
God, ready to save us. So, the next time
you are tempted to leave your church,
think of this story and have faith in God
and hang in there.
When in spiritual doubt, reach for Jesus
and He will save you. As I write this med-
itation, I am actually on the same Sea in
Israel. The story is real.

S vents a relaxation of one's own moral fiber.
S "There are enough holidays for most of us
which can quite properly be devoted to pure
holiday making..Sundays differ from other hol-
idays among other ways in the fact that there
- are 52 of them every year...On Sunday, go to
Church.
Dedicate
"Yes, I know all the excuses. I know that one
can worship the creator and dedicate oneself to
good living in a grove of trees, or by a running
brook, or in one's own house, just as well as in
Church. But I also know as a matter of cold fact
the average man does not thus worship or thus
S dedicate himself. If he stays away from Church
he does not spend his time in good work or in
Church lofty meditation. He looks over coloured
supplements of the newspaper.
"He may no hear a good sermon at Church.
But unless he is very unfortunate he will hear a
sermon by a good man who, with his good wife,


is engaged all the week long in a series of wear-
ing and humdrum and impact tasks for making
hard lives a little easier.
"He will listen to and take part in reading
some beautiful passage from the Bible. And if he
is not familiar with the Bible, he has suffered a
loss....
"He will probably take in singing some good
hymns. He will meet and nod to, or speak to,
good, quiet neighbours... He will come away
feeling a little more charitably toward all the
world, even toward those excessively foolish
young men who regard going to church as rather
a soft performance.
Advocate
"I advocate a man's joining in Church works
for the sake of showing his faith by his works.
"The man who does not in some way, active 01or
not, connect himself with some active, working
church misses many opportunities for helping
his neighbours, and therefore, incidentally, for
helping himself."

CARD OF THANKS

For the late


Jennifer I. D. Tynes

October 24th 1949 July 4th, 2005

"...for we know that all things work together for Good
to those who love the Lord" Romans 8:28

Sean Tynes and Indira Gibson, the children of Jennifer J.D. Tynes, together
with other family members wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation
to all for their overwhelming expressions of sympathy on the sudden loss of
our most beloved mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend.
It is most difficult to adequately express thanks to the numerous families,
friends and neighbors for acts of kindness during our time of bereavement.
Your prayers, cards, visits, telephone calls, floral arrangements, encouraging
words, financial donations and all you did you console our hearts will always
be remembered. Your attendance at Jen's home going service in such goodly
numbers was a true testament of your love for her our hearts were gladdened.
Special thanks is extended to Fr. Kingsley Knowles, Dr. Roland Hamilton,
Archdeacons Cornell Moss and Ranfurly Brown, Frs. Curtis Robinson,
Crosley Walkine, Delano Archer and other members of the clergy, The Sr.
Choir of St. George,s, under the direction of Adrian A. W. Archer, Mr. Dexter
Fernander, the Guild to Help the Sick and Needy, the Anglican Church
Women, The Usher Board, The Pastoral Care & Counselling Ministry of St.
George's, Mr. Howard Bethel, the entire staff of the College of The Bahamas,
the Management and Staff of Scotia Bank (main branch), the Quarter Century
Club (COB), Mr. Alvin K. Rolle, Dr. James Moultrie, the coordinators of the
COB memorial and the Management and Staff of Bethel Brothers for your
excellent work.
May God make his face to shine upon each and every one of you.
To Live In Hearts We Leave Behind Is Not To Die
