Search for two

men after car

chase drama


Bahamas' relay great performance


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff
Reporter.
TWO men suspected of
robbing three tourists over
the weekend are still at
large after their get-away
car, driven by a woman,
crashed during a police,
chase. The woman was
arrested.
According to reports,
shortly before 3am Sunday,
three women visitors from
New Jersey were walking
on Paradise Beach Road
near the marina dock mas-
ter's office on the way to
their hotel when they were
held up by two men. One
of the men was armed with
a handgun and the other a
razor blade.
The armed men robbed
the visitors of cash and per-
sonal items.
Police press liaison offi-
cer Walter Evans said that
police on patrol in the area
were notified of the inci-
dent just moments later.
According to reports a
bald-headed man, dressed
in blue jeans and a white
singlet, with his face con-
cealed by -a handkerchief,
approached the women and
demanded cash. The
women dropped their
handbags. He grabbed
their bags and fled to a
waiting car.


At that moment a police
patrol car passed, one of
the women visitors flagged
it down. It immediately
gave chase to a self drive
1994 grey Toyota Corolla,
following it over the bridge
onto Mackey and Rosetta
Streets where it crashed
into a light pole.
"The police gave chase
which ended up on Mackey
and Rosetta Streets. At
this point, the vehicle
crashed and two male occu-
pants jumped out and ran
in the nearby area," said
Mr Evans.
The police took the
woman driving the vehicle
into custody.
Mr Evans said that all
the items stolen, including
the cash, were recovered.
The suspected armed rob-
bers are still at large.
Mr Evans said that police
are withholding the identi-
ty of the tourists and the
woman driver, and are con-
tinuing their investigations
into the matter.
Speaking on this latest
criminal act against visitors
to the Bahamas, Tourism
Minister Obie Wilchcombe
said that the criminal ele-
ment that is developing has
to be reversed.
"Our job is to rid the
attitude of abnormal sub-
cultural behaviour," said
Mr Wilchcombe.

HELSINKI, Finland: A national
record for a silver medal by the men's 4 x
400 metre relay team of Nathanial McK-
inney, Avard Moncur, Andrae Williams
and Chris Brown Sunday helped the
Bahamas to a three-way tie for, 13th in
the medal count at the 10th IAAF World


Championships.
The performance, coupled by Tonique
Williams-Darling's gold medal in the
women's 400 final, matched the gold won
by Troy Kemp in the high jump, 20 min-
utes before Pauline ,Davis-Thompson
secured the silver in the women's 400 at
the fifth World Championships in
Gothenburg, Sweden.
But Ralph McKinney, manager of this


Sir Clement Maynard:

government must keep


year's 19-member team here, said the
men's 4 x 4 relay team in the final event
on the nine-day championship, was a
good way to sum up how well the
Bahamas performed.
"We're very happy today. This is a
good note to finish the championships
on, after a series of four place finishes,"

Two businessmen

its campaign promises Department round-up


* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
IF THE government wants
to remain the government it
should ensure that it keeps its
campaign promises, former
Deputy Prime Minister Sir
Clement Maynard said.
Sir Clement made the state-
ment yesterday during Love
97's talk show, Jones and Com-
pany.
"Some promises were made


you know. One of the things,
you have to remember is that
every party makes a lot of
promises and if you don't keep
those promises you can take it
from me there are people taking
score," he said.
The former deputy prime
minister said that there is a need
to keep the public updated on
the progress of the governmen-
t's work and the party should

THE Immigration-.Depart-
ment's round-up Friday of more
than 100 persons, believed to
be working illegally in the
Bahamas, was indicative of a
"fascist state", and in the case of
the Straw Market arrests, the
Haitians there were used as
scapegoats to deal with a much
larger problem.
This was the sentiment of two


Bahamian businessmen of Hait-
ian birth who were interviewed
.by The Tribune yesterday.
One of the businessmen, who
asked not to be identified, com-
pared the round-up operations
to the actions of a "fascist

Quite excited over her win, in
an interview wifi Thei tribe
Ms Virgil said she feels great
about her accomplishment.
"This is just the first step in
pursuing my singing career," said
Ms Virgil.
She has high hopes for the
future and wants to produce
platinum records in years to
come.
Davon "M Deez" Knight was
the winner for the rapping divi-
sion.
He sang an original piece writ-
ten by himself entitled, "I'll
Walk This Way".
"This is a wonderful feeling.
This is the first competition I
entered and won over my 20
years of singing," he said.
The event was judged by local
and an international individuals
in the music arena. The judges
included Shalik Berry, of Amer-
ican record label Def Jam,
Terneille Burrows, Bahamian
artist and producer, Zolton
Johnson, producer/engineer at
Ocean Music group, and Rev
Patrick Smith.
Corain Smith, whose brain-
child it was, said she wanted to
expose the talents of
Bahamian youth to internation-
al guests.
"Watching the talent of the
show 'American Idol' I knew we
had talent of that caliber," she
said.


The programme includes
three phases that will hope-
fully supply fresh and useful
information to policy
makers and the general
public.
Last week the Depart-
ment of Immigration con-
ducted an island-wide raid
to arrest illegal immigrants.
They began Thursday
night and continued into the
morning hours of Friday.
Coral Harbour, Bacardi

and the Straw Market were
areas in which the immigra-
tion department concentrat-

Labour and Immigration
Minister Vincent Peet said
the exercise is consistent
with the commitment his
ministry made long ago.--
"There is an exercise
ongoing and the full extent
of that remains to be seen.
This recent exercise was an
operation that was meant to
find as many illegal immi-
grants as possible.
"And to find as many as
one can, the larger the
operation, the better," he
said.

Passengers

rescued after

plane crash
A FISHERMAN rescued
seven passengers from a
plane that crashed into the
Atlantic Ocean headed
from North Eleuthera to
Florida over the weekend.
The plane, owned by
Twin-Air, was returning to
Fort Lauderdale from
North Eleuthera when the
airport received a call from
the pilot.
An unidentified fisher-
man spotted the passen-
gers., who had been in the
water for at least 30 min-
utes, took them onboard
and dropped them off at
the Coast Guard Station in
Fort Lauderdale.
The twin-engine Piper
airplane carrying the seven
people crashed six miles
southeast of Fort Laud-
erdale.
The US Coast Guard said
no one was severely
injured. Only one passen-
ger was taken to hospital
with minor injuries.
Coast Guard officials said
they launched a helicopter,
a cutter and two small boats
to rescue them, and broad-
cast a message to any near-
by ships to be on the look-
out for survivors.


Drownings

spark police

concern
By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
POLICE are concerned
about the number of
drownings that have
occurred thus far for the
year, said press liaison offi-
cer Walter Evans.
In an interview with The
Tribune yesterday, Mr .
Evans pointed out that
'from January to July of this
year there have been 25
reported drownings in the
Bahamas.
According to police sta-
tistics, out of the reported
drownings: Twenty per cent
involved children up to five
years of age. Between the
ages of 5 to 17 years and 18
to 40 years account for eight
per cent. Persons 40 years
and over account for 48 per
cent. The other 24 per cent
accounts for those who
have drowned and their
ages were unknown.
But of special concern
said Mr Evans is the num-
ber of drownings that have
occurred in July. Out of the
reported 25 cases, eight of
those cases occurred last
month.

Deaths
"When you see the esca-
lation in the number of
reported drowning deaths
for the month of July, com-
pared to other preceding
months, there is much con-
cern on the part of the Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force,"
said Mr Evans.
He added: "We within
this organisation would like
to see these numbers at
either a zero level, or we
prefer the numbers to be
minimal."
Chris Lloyd operations
manager at Bahamas Air
Sea Rescue Association
(BASRA) said that it is not
practical for government to
put lifeguards on every pub-
lic beach. However, he rec-
ommended some safety
measures that can be taken
when either swimming or
,boating.

Swimming
When going swimming he
recommended that there be


an individual designated to
watch persons in the water.
He said preferably an adult
with good swimming capa-
bilities.
Persons should not rely
on inflatable toys to be used
as safety equipment, but
use life jackets.
For boaters, Mr Lloyd
advised that life jackets
should be on board the ves-
sel to accommodate all pas-
sengers and be placed in an
accessible location.
Boats, he said, should be
equipped with a marine
VHS radio.


FNM leadership candidate




Foulkes hits out at the PLP


"What happened is that while
in the political wilderness the
PLP did not prepare for their
return to government; You can
see this in their 2002 manifesto
which is more a collection of
ideas quickly glued together,
rather than a coherent plan for
government."

Dion Foulkes


IN A breakfast speech to
the Grand Bahama leader-
ship of the Free National
Movement on Saturday,
Dion Foulkes lashed out at
the PLP accusing the gov-
erning party of a style that is
"indecisive, incompetent,
incomprehensible, insuffi-
cient, ineffective and incom-
patible with progress."
The candidate for Leader
of the FNM said that the
PLP represented "a persis-
tent form of bad gover-
nance" which results in a
lack of accountability by
various ministers and an
aversion to transparency on
key issues.
Much of the old guard and
old spirit still linger in the
PLP, he said. "You're not
sure when a minister is
speaking for him or herself
or the government or even
for some special interest
lurking in the background."
There is no strong hand
on the wheel of the ship of
state, Mr. Foulkes charged:
"No strong hand to com-
bat crime. No strong hand
dealing with immigration.
No strong hand holding
investors accountable. No


strong hand to stop give-
aways that are secretly hid-
den in Heads of Agreement
this administration won't
even let us see. No strong
hand to stop abuses by the
cabinet."
Mr Foulkes told the
Grand Bahama FNMs that
the so-called political
wilderness of opposition was
an opportunity for a politi-
cal party to prepare for its
return to government. He
said the PLP failed to pre-
pare for governing.

Manifesto
"What happened is that
while in the political wilder-
ness the PLP did not pre-
pare for their return to gov-
ernment. You can see this
in their 2002 manifesto
which is more a collection
of ideas quickly glued
together, rather than a
coherent plan for govern-
ment. That. is why it's more
than ironic that their mani-
festo was called Our Plan.
My friends, the PLP forgot
that hope and help is a slo-
gan, not a governing philos-

ophy or a real plan of
action. And if you do not
plan, plan to fail."
Mr Foulkes outlined for
his own party the organiza-
tion of policies in four gen-
eral clusters: economic
advancement and wealth
creation, political reform
and. the deepening of
democracy, social and cul-
tural renewal and guarding
our heritage, and environ-
mental protection and pre-
serving our natural heritage.
With regard to the latter,
Mr Foulkes pledged to set
up a Ministry of Environ-
mental Affairs to help pre-
serve our natural resources,
monitor our natural heritage
and to review development
plans and their impact on
the environment.
In the next 20 months, he
said, the FNM must contin-
ue to plan for how it will
govern more effectively and
decisively when it becomes
the government' ,.

Ungracious slap in face to Sir Jack


TODAY we are back on the issue of Sir
Jack Hayward and the $1 million donation to
the National Emergency Management Agency
(NEMA), established at the end of 1992 to
assist Bahamians in the rebuilding of their
hurricane damaged homes.
The donation became an issue in March
when the YMCA, an important sports and
fitness centre in Freeport, was destroyed by
last summer's hurricanes. On his return to
Freeport in March members of the Y, of which
Sir Jack is founding patron, complained to
him that a letter they had written to the
NEMA representative in Freeport on January
17 two months earlier -itemising the hur-
ricane destruction and requesting urgent assis-
tance, had gone unanswered. Sir Jack felt
there was nothing to worry about. He was
certain that some of the $1 million he and his
partner, the late Edward St George, had given
NEMA for that very purpose could be used.
And so Sir Jack instructed a member of
his staff to contact NEMA's Freeport office.
The staff member was told that Freeport had
no funds. The local representative said he
wished he could help, but his hands were tied.
He had applied in vain for other persons, but
could get nothing out of the central fund in
Nassau. He suggested that the request go
straight to Nassau.
Alarmed Sir Jack took over the matter him-
self. He first called the Freeport office to make
certain his ears were not deceiving him. He
then telephoned Nassau. There he got the
usual run-around. His phone calls were not
returned.
Insulted that he was being treated like a
"fourth class citizen", Sir Jack phoned The
Tribune to put a firecracker under NEMA. By
now his frustrated requests for funds for the Y
had turned into an angry complaint.
Reading his complaint in The Tribune the
next morning, Luther Smith, NEMA's senior
coordinator, claimed that Sir Jack's frustra-
tion was the result of a "misunderstanding."
He admitted that the Hayward-St George
donation was deposited to the general disaster
relief fund as were all other donations and,
with the others, had been applied nationally.
He said the fund's guidelines would not per-
mit government to use these funds to repair
schools or any private institution, such as the
Grand Bahama YMCA.
This is true, but also true is the fact that the
specified instructions accompanying the dona-
tion made it impossible for it to be applied
nationally.
NEMA, established by the Ingraham gov-
ernment after the devastation of Hurricane
Andrew in August, 1992, was specifically set
up to collect funds to help uninsuted citizens
and those with insufficient funds to rebuild

their homes. NEMA funds could not be used
for government reconstruction, obviously this
prohibition included schools and the YMCA.
At a Chamber of Commerce meeting in
Freeport in October last year, Prime Minister
Perry Christie not only announced receipt of
the Hayward-St George $1 million donation,
but read the donors' short letter stipulating
the terms of its use. All of the million dollars
was to go to Grand Bahama 50 per cent for
Freeport, and 50 per cent for the communities
of East and West Grand Bahama. "We would
also like to express our wish that these funds
be used for restoring the educational facili-
ties on Grand Bahama" this would have
included the YMCA.
Mr Christie, being a lawyer, immediately
knew that the donation was hobbled. He said
that they had to make a "special position" for
that donation and as the donors wanted it to go
to education, "government must find a way to
oblige them."
In law the only way that the donation could
have been properly handled would have been
to have put it in a special fund not NEMA.
It could then have been distributed according
to the donors' wishes. There is a body of law
that protects such donations. If Sir Jack want-
ed to be nasty, he could have demanded the
return of his $1 million.
However, thanks to his loud complaint,
Freeport's Y will probably get more financial
help from government than it requested. If
Sir Jack had remained silent, it is unlikely that
the Y would have got anything.
But as if ignorance had not caused enough
trouble, the insult to Sir Jack was further com-
pounded by a scurrilous "comment of the
week" on a local website. Sir Jack was called
"eccentric", his "outburst foolish", his political
preferences questioned, his outbursts a "lia-
bility" to the Grand Bahama Port Authority.
It was even suggested that there was now a
"family fight" within the company between
Mr St George's most generous widow and Sir
Jack. Finally Sir Jack was advised to "shut
up" and stay "in England where he belongs."
To add insult to injury, the website scribe
claimed that both Sir Jack and Mr St George
were told that their donation could not have
conditions attached. It "had to be used for
national hurricane relief."
To which Sir Jack replied: "Absolute non-
sense a lie we were told nothing."
If Foreign Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell
has any influence over his former website, he
might suggest that the writer apologise. After
all it seems a most ungracious slap in the face
for a man, who, with his partner, paid univer-
sity fees to make it possible for Mr Mitchell to
complete his final year as a law student at
Buckingham University in England.


The crisis in




Zimbabwe




continues


EDITOR, The Tribune,
I should be grateful if you
would consider publishing
the enclosed letter as a con-
tribution towards the com-
ments regarding the crisis in
Zimbabwe.
EDITOR, The Tribune.
I WRITE in connection
with Sir Ronald Sanders' arti-
cle of the June 20th in The
Tribune, "Zimbabwe: Need
for Intervention" and the two
resultant letters published on
July 18th.
I endorse the content of the
first one written by the Chair-
man of the Combined Harare
Residents' Association which
supports
Sir Ronald's article and
updates and details the wave
of destruction continuing in
Zimbabwe against the street
traders.
Regarding the second letter
signed by Rob, "Zimbabwe -
No need for Intervention" -
I can only conclude that this
letter must have been written
by the Government's propa-
ganda machine since it fails to
acknowledge that there is a
problem in the country, and
follows their usual pattern of
trying to throw a smokescreen
across their monumental fail-
ures. These failures relate
back to the Referendum when
the people said "No" to the
proposed changes in the Con-
stitution which would have
made Mugabe President for
Life. All the elections since
then have not been free or fair
and have brought about the
ZANU PF policy of "Stay in
Power at Any Price" even to
the ruination of the country.
The policy of the MDC -
the main Opposition party -
is "No Violence" in affecting a
change of Government in
Zimbabwe. For this we are
grateful.
The Christian churches and
Human Rights movements
have been praying and fasting
asking for God's intervention
in this situation where justice
has been .subverted and
human rights are being abused
on a daily basis. All press,
radio and TV programmes are
tightly controlled and full of
Government propaganda. The
Opposition press was bombed
and finally closed down after it
reappeared on the streets
again. The list of their abuses
and injustices is endless.

Your prayers are needed
The Prophets of the Bible
were passionate about Justice
- ie. Jeremiah Ch.21v.12
CEV "Each new day make
sure that justice is done and
rescue those who are being
robbed."
Jeremiah Ch 23 v 5 --
"Someday I will appoint an
honest king who will be wise,
honest and rule with justice.
Jesus taught his followers,
"Thy Kingdom Come on
Earth".
Where God rules the weak
are protected and justice is
done. Jeremiah lived during
the reign of a bad King. How-
ever his deep faith in God told
him that the King would one
day be deposed and God
would then raise up a King
who would be wise, honest


and just. Jeremiah believed
God's promise and looked
ahead to a better future. God
has promised that His King-
dom will come however bad
the world, however corrupt or
weak the leaders may be,
however unjust the social sys-
tem in which they live.
Christians hope because
they know that God is able to
intervene and bring a new and
better order. In our own time
we have witnessed the power
of prayer being effective in
South Africa when a peaceful

Mercy should


be displayed


EDITOR, The Tribune.
I DON'T know Mr Kenneth Nathan from John Doe,
but according to the information presented in the press it
appears that he was the young man that turned Dario
Gibson into the custody of the Police on August Monday.
It was further determined that the young child was
entrusted into Mr Nathan's care for the past two weeks,
by his mother Ms Eldrice Gibson.
I don't profess to know all of the details that surround
this case, nor do I claim to possess additional information
more than the average layman, however I do feel that
mercy should be displayed.
If I were placed in a similar situation, and I was given a
responsibility which I found too great to carry alone, I
might have also looked to various entities in society for
assistance.
I don't know exactly what Mr Nathan did to warrant
such a charge being brought against him, nor do I support
any activity that might lead one in traversing the laws
that presently govern the society in which we live.
However I do feel that if the justice system does decide
to turn this "Good Samaritan" into a martyr, it is my
naive opinion that many individuals who might be able to
assist others in their time of need might think twice, and
instead walk away, if they realise that their act of kind-
ness may be used to bring charges against them at a later
date.
Thus I ask again for mercy to be exhibited when sen-
tencing this young man.
I would like to thank you for your time and considera-
tion.
Have a great day, take care, God bless.

NEWLY appointed
FNM Senator John
Dclaney said he has
been asked to pursue a
constituency nomination
in the 2007 general elec-
tion.
Mr Delaney, a lawyer
by profession, made the
statement yesterday on
Island FM's Parliament
Street.
"I have been request-
ed to pursue a nomina-
tion for a constituency
in the Free National
Movement. It is some-
thing I have under active
consideration," he told
the show's host.
The senator said he
has many things that he
has to consider one of
them being the fact that
he is currently "heavily
professionally engaged
at the moment".
Mr Delaney has been a
partner in the law firm
of Higgs & Johnson
since 1994. He special-
izes in financial services
and corporate law.

Lecturer

He has been a mem-
ber of the Road Traffic
Authority and the
National Youth Adviso-
ry Committee, and has
had directorships with
the Drug Action Service
(an anti-drug abuse com-
munity organization),
National Insurance
Board, the Bahamas
Financial Services Board
and Finance Corpora-
tion of The Bahamas
(RBC FinCo). Mr.
Delaney also served as a
lecturer on banking.
He was officially
sworn in as an FNM Sen-
ator in mid-June after
his predecessor
Desmond Bannister
resigned for "personal
reasons."
FNM leader Tommy
Turnquest has credited
Mr Delaney with being
the FNM's key
spokesman in challeng-
ing government to "do
the right thing" and not
sign onto the CSME.
Since government
announced its decision
not to join the regional
body, Mr Delaney
described it as "the right
result" because the
Bahamas should only
feel comfortable about
the CSME's four reser-
vations if they were stat-
ed in the revised Treaty
"in clear words in bind-
ing arrangements".

Foulkes sets out proposals





for the reform of the FNM


DION Foulkes, a candidate for
Leader of the Free National
Movement, over the weekend
outlined his proposals to reform
the party in preparation for its
return to government in 2007.
Speaking to the Grand
Bahama party leadership at a
breakfast meeting in Freepor.t
Saturday, Mr. Foulkes hsilfenged
'his colleagues with a*qudtefrt6m
founding leader Sir Cecil Wallace
Whitfield in his "free at last"
speech to the PLP convention in
1970:
"It may be difficult to admit
our mistakes but it may be equal-
ly disastrous to brave it out and
not come face to face with them.
We must above all things beware
of stagnation. ... Without political
growth our party will stagnate
and die."

History
Mr Foulkes warned against
whitewashing the party's history
and "pretending that we are a
perfect party." He called on the
party to admit its mistakes "with
humility and contrition."
He then outlined his proposals
for reform of the FNM, empha-
sizing the need for the national
leadership of the party to keep
the channels of communication
open and not to forget the party
base.
"We have to institutionalize
mechanisms for consultation and
collaboration whether we are in


or out of government. Perhaps
we wouldn't have suffered such a
loss if we were listening.

to the people, including our
own."
The proposals for party reform,
modernization and renewal set
out by Mr. Foulkes include a revi-
sion of the party's constitution,
and a review of every organ of
the party, including constituency
associations, committees and the
executive, and the number and
roles of party officers.
"Such a plan must be built on a
spirit which says every FNM
counts, that this is your home;
that you always have access to
your leaders.
"That you are an essential part
of a modernized, robust and
vibrant movement that will press
on to victory with a determina-
tion and aggressiveness that will
make you proud."
Mr Foulkes said that ways must
be .found to recognize, honour
and utilize the party's Freedom


Founders Day and other impor-
tant occasions, including Sir Cecil
Wallace Whitfield Week.

Assets
He also suggested refurbish-
ment and modernization of the
party's physical assets, including
its National Headquarters in Nas-
sau and the Sir Cecil Wallace
Whitfield Centre in Freeport, and
a store to sell party specialty
items, paraphernalia and litera-
ture.
Mr Foulkes announced that
with the permission of Lady Nao-
mi Wallace Whitfield, he is col-
laborating with Dr. Curtis McMil-
lan to publish Sir Cecil's historic
1970 speech which led to the Dis-
sident Eight's break with the PLP
and the eventual formation of the
FNM.

Former Deputy PM


calls for the return of


corporal punishment


in public schools


* By RUPERT MISSICK JR
Chief Reporter
CALLING for the return of corporal punish-
ment in public schools, former Deputy Prime
Minister Sir Clement Maynard said that such
measures will eliminate the elements that increase
the sense of insecurity and fear on campuses
throughout the country.
Sir Clement made the statement on Love 97's
talk show, Jones and Company, which was broad-
cast on Sunday.
The former deputy prime minister said that
too much power has been put into the hands of
the students.
"Either they cane you and put you in your
place or suspend you. You can't disrupt the school
because other children must learn, not learn bad
habits from those who want to be disruptive,"
he said.
In July education officials announced that in
order to help promote proper security in the
nation's schools, the government will be placing
a school-based police officer at all high-risk school
campuses throughout the country.
Sir Clement also said that police would not
have to be stationed at the schools if corporal
punishment were reintroduced into the school
system.


"Just put the cane in the hand of the headmas-
ter, put the cane in the hand of the teacher. All of
them should be able to correct children and I
don't mean abuse.
"When I went to school, boys wore short pants
to start with, to help you remember that you
were a boy. You did not get into long pants until
you got into high school. All of these things were
done for a purpose.
"We abandoned a whole lot of that and I put
myself in that because that happened largely in
the time of the PLP," he said.

Involved
Sir Clement said that police officers should
once again get involved in ensuring that children
are not idle in the streets during school hours.
"That child should be taken to the station and
have their parents called. Why not? Now we
don't believe in any of that, we believe in getting
a sociologist to decide why the child is not in
school in the meantime the child is out of
school not learning anything and getting into mis-
chief.
"Then we wonder how we get early pregnancies
and such things. The fact is we have to deal with
these things at the level we used to," he said.

Tributes paid to Emma

Ophelia Heastie-Sweeting


FAMILY and friends paid
their last respects to a woman
who was described as being "so
eager to serve others."
The funeral service of Emma
Ophelia Heastie-Sweeting was
held on Saturday at Christ
Church Cathedral, George Street.
" Mrs Sweeting was born in the
settlement of Pompey Bay, Ack-
lins, on June 12, 1932. She was a
retired nurse who served at both


the Princess Margaret Hospital
and Sandilands Rehabilitation
Centre.
Rev Patrick Adderley, dean of
the cathedral, in his sermon said
that Mrs Sweeting exercised her
lay ministry in the church "cheer-
fully, consistently and faithfully,
labouring long and hard in the
Lord's vineyard."
Being a widow for 34 years the
Rev Adderley said she worked


single-handedly and tirelessly to
keep her family together.
"She believed that she could
do all things through Christ who
strengthened her.
"There was no obstacle she
could not meet and overcome
with God by her side," said Rev
Adderley.
She is survived by her children
Shayne, Andrew, Philip, Wayde
and Denise.

Queen's College administrators




attends AP National Conference


QUEEN'S College adminis-
trators, Shawn Turnquest and
Henry Knowles; Guidance
Counsellor, Cassandra Bowles
and Curriculum Coordinator,
Veronica Campbell attended
this summer's Advance Place-
ment National Conference
which was held in Houston,
Texas.
This fourth annual National
Conference brought together
thousands of educators of the
Advance Placement (AP) and
Pre-Advanced Placement com-
munity from around the world.
This conference, which is
known for its ability to strength-
en existing AP programmes
while providing educators with
additional insight, lived up to
its reputation.
More than 2,700 educators


were present to attend produc-
tive workshops and inspiring
plenary sessions. They learned
the latest and most current
information about the many AP
Programmes. It was also an
opportunity for the college
board to share with educators
their plans and related services
of the programme.
This year saw the implemen-
tation of this rigorous and pres-
tigious high school programme
at Queen's College.
Research has indicated that
students who follow the AP
programme are more likely to
gain acceptance to more selec-
tive universities and experience
greater success while there. This
is the second year that Queen's
College has been represented
at the conference.


* SHAWN Turnquest,
vice-principal of Queen's
College; Henry Knowles,
Deputy Head and Cassandra
Bowles, College Counsellor
met Dr Mae Jemison who was
the closing session speaker at
the Advanced Placement
National Conference. As an
astronaut, Dr Jemison was the
first woman of colour to orbit
space, which occurred on
September 12 1992 aboard the
space shuttle Endeavour. Dr
Jemison has earned many
awards and has made
presentations to the United
Nations on the uses of space
technology. As a renowned
lecturer, "Dr Jemison speaks
nationally and internationally
on science literacy, sustainable
development, education,
achieving excellence, the
importance of increased par-
ticipation of women and
minorities in science and tech-
nology fields and investing in
the present to secure the
future".


* AFTER organising a
successful Queen's College
Spring production of excerpts
from the musical "West Side
Story", director Dr Keith
Wisdom and producer Fran
Dillet are presented with
f' ramed posters to6
commemorate the occasion by
'cast members Vernell Davis

McKinney reflected. "This sec-
ond place is good for our spirits
to carry the team on beyond
the world championships.
"Even better, a national
record. When you look back at
CAC, these same guys, minus
Avard, finished the CAC off and
made it exciting for the Bahami-
ans. I know those Bahamians at
home are just as excited, espe-
cially for the national record and
the silver medal."
By virtue of adding the sil-
ver to the gold that Tonique
Williams-Darling won in claim-
ing back-to-back Olympic and
World Championship titles in
the women's 400, the Bahamas
ended up tied with Estonia and
the Netherlands for 13th place in
the standings.
The United States dominated
the list with a total of 27 medals,
inclusive of 14 gold, eight silver
and three bronze.
Cuba, which produced one
of three world records, ended
up in fourth with two gold and
four silver and archrival Jamaica
came ninth with their best show-
ing ever; producing a gold, five
silver and two bronze.
A jubilant Minister of Youth,
Sports and Culture Neville Wis-
dom, who was in the mixed zone
where the athletes are inter-
viewed when they come off the
track, was jumping up and down
singing the praises of the ath-
letes.
Trying to catch his breath, he
said "this is a result of a lot of


relay


performance


planning, a lot of hard work. I
believe that these young men
have to be encouraged, but this
is just the beginning. In the not
too distant future, the Bahamas
will hold the world record set-
ting men's 4 x 400 relay team."
As he's been doing as each
athlete came off the field, Mr
Wisdom said as long as he's the
Minister of Sports, he will ensure
that the athletes get what they
deserve to go on to accomplish
that feat.
McKinney, Moncur, Williams
and Brown's time shattered the
previous national record of
2:59.19 that the team of Mon-
cur, Brown, McIntosh and Tim
Munnings, with Carl Oliver as
the alternate, set back in
Edmonton, Canada in 2001 as
they claimed the silver behind
the United States.
Their performance came
after Lavern Eve struggled to
get in a solid throw in the wom-
en's javelin, placing 10th in a
field that was led by 25-year-old
Osleidys Menendez turning in
a world record on her first
throw.
But as they jogged around the
track with the American team
that won the gold in a world
leading time of 2:56.91 and
Jamaica, the bronze medalists
in 2:58.07, they were joined by
Troy McIntosh.
McIntosh ran the third leg
with McKinney (lead off), Mon-
cur (second) and Williams
(anchor) as they ran what was
then the world's fastest time of
2:59.73 to advance to the final


on Saturday night.
And when the quartet from
the final went up to collect their
medal, McIntosh also joined
them as IAAF president Lamine
Diack made the presentation
during the closing ceremonies.
As a team, they will also get
to share $40,000, while the
Americans split $80,000 and the
Jamaicans get $20,000.
During the press conference
after they got their medals,
McKinney said he ran "a near
perfect race" to help the team
pull off the silver medal.
Moncur, back in action after
missing the last two years, said
his job on second leg was just
to "put the team in position"
and that was what he did.
Williams, making his second
appearance on the team after
running in the Olympic Games
last- year, said once he got the
baton, he made sure that "Chris
was able to go after the Ameri-
can."
And Brown, who was forced
with the task of running neck-
and-neck with American Jere-
my Warner on the anchor leg,
thanked his team-mates for
helping the Bahamas to get in
their position as silver medal-
ists.
The team was scheduled to
leave the Athletes Village today
and stay in a hotel that was close
by. Everybody will eventually
leave Helsinki by Tuesday.
Some will stay in Europe to
compete and those who are not
based in the United States, will
be returning home.

immigration round-up

FROM page one

uments no one just walks around with. Are we to assume that
from now on Bahamians, Haitians and everyone should be com-
pelled to walk around with proof of citizenship?" he asked.
This is a position that lawyer and human rights activist Elizier
Regnier shares.
He also criticised government for the way the operations at the
Straw Market were conducted.
Immigration and police officers conducted joint raids on sev-
eral New Providence streets and at the Straw Market on Friday.
Officers surrounded the market at 9 am, going from vendor to
vendor as they checked for work and status permits.
It is reported that a number of vendors, or their helpers, seek-
ing to'escape the officers were caught at the north and southern
exits.
The exact number of persons taken away is still not known, but
at least one immigration van, filled with market women, was
seen leaving the area shortly after 10am.
Mr Regnier said that'it would be naive to think that operations
such as this one would not make an impression on tourists at the
market.
"As a constant traveller I know it will reach some tourists and
have a negative effect on them. While the government has an
obligation to enforce the law there must be a better wayin which
this can be done," he said.
He pointed out that while some Bahamian stall holders employ
Haitians and Jamaicans, some of these foreign nationals are reg-
ularized and married to Bahamians.
"Some will have to be released back into the market and you
can imagine the anger and mistrust these people will have towards
those who work side by side them every day," Mr Regnier said.
He called the attitudes of some straw vendors "hypocritical"
because they ignore the contribution Haitians have made to the
market.
"From time immemorial some straw plats have come from
Haiti, mahogany wood carvings were brought in from Haiti so
Haitians have been here supplementing and giving background
aid to the industry.
"Even the Haitian sloops near the fish fry are some of the,
most popular photographs for tourists," said Mr Regnier.
The lawyer called the round-ups at the market, counter pro-
ductive and a public relations stunt, not only to appeal to the
"xenophobic" tendencies of those in the market, but to take
vendors' minds off government's failure to deliver on promises
made to them.
"The Haitians there are scapegoats and these actions are no
more than a smoke screen. The straw vendors deserve more
than they have been given and this is just to take their minds off
of it," Mr Regnier said.

Maynard

not wait until their conven-
tion or an election for that
to happen.
"The prime minister is
entitled to make a speech
twice a year. There are
ample opportunities to tell
the people what is going on.
Every minister could be
speaking on what's happen-
ing on his or her ministry.
The public ought to know
every step of the way what
is going on and what is not
going on and if its not going
on what's the reason for
that," said Sir Clement.
Some ministers have
complained that many of
their efforts have been
retarded by civil servants.
However, the former
deputy prime minister said
that there are ways around
this.
"Stop blaming the civil
servants because they are
the persons who are in place
at the behest of the prime
minister. He is able to move
people around and appoint
new people and people who
believe that they ought to
serve the party in power and
not the one they feel should
be in power," he said.

Japan's hot dog

king swallows

100 pork buns

in 12 minutes


JAPAN'S champion speed-
eater devoured 100 roast pork
buns in 12 minutes in the final
round of an eating contest in
Hong Kong on Sunday.
Takeru Kobayashi, 27,
plowed through the Chinese
steamed buns to easily beat five
other local contestants, pock-
eting a cash prize of 20,000
Hong Kong dollars. First run-
ner-up Johnny Wu, 34, finished
47 buns.
Kobayashi who weighs just
144 pounds (65 kilograms) -
said the palm-sized buns posed


more of a challenge than the 83
vegetarian dumplings he
downed in eight minutes on
Saturday.
Cheered on by crowds of
spectators, Kobayashi took
quick swigs of water in between
chewing the buns, a tactic he
said helped to soften them and
made swallowing easier.
The Japanese speed-eater is
the five-time international hot
dog-eating champion, and holds
the world record after wolfing
down 53 and a half frankfurters
in 12 minutes.

Bahamas Ferries



grows as Family



Islands trips rise


* By YOLANDA
DELEVEAUX
Senior Business Reporter
MAKING strides to position
itself as the first choice for trav-
el to its Family Island destina-
tions, Bahamas Ferries experi-
enced significant growth in its
business for the first half of
2005, as interest in Family
Island travel increased and
demand for its services surged.
Khaalis Rolle, chief market-
ing officer for Bahamas Ferries,
attributed the growth in busi-
ness to an increase in domestic
travel by Bahamians and the
fact that more Bahamians see
ferry travel as the primary and
mainstream mode of trans-
portation to the Family Islands,
over air and mail boat travel.
Calling it an encouraging
sign, Mr Rolle said that in the
Exuma market alone, Bahamas
Ferries almost doubled its pas-
senger numbers since 2004, evi-
dence that Bahamians are
beginning to prefer to travel by
sea and modern ferry.
Looking to capture an even
greater percentage of the trans-
portation market, Bahamas Fer-
ries recently made a number of
infrastructural developments
and product improvements.
They have invested heavily
in fortifying their Potters Cay
Terminal and have built a new
information technology plat-


form because they believe that
customers would prefer to com-
plete their transactions over the
Internet.
The company has moved to
an online, web-based Internet
reservations system, which
allows customers to book travel
with Bahamas Ferries without,
having to go to the terminal pri-
or to travel.

Automation

The company is also now ful-
ly automated and has gone live
with a new, redesigned web site
and reservations system where
credit card purchases can be
made. Included in the upgrade
is an e-ticketing process that
involves a boarding pass that
can be scanned by way of a
wireless link to their central sys-
tem.
As part of its product
improvements, Bahamas Fer-
ries recently upgraded its ter-
minal space. Previously, because
of the layout of Potters Cay and
the limited space in which they
had to operate, it was a contin-
uous challenge to provide an
acceptable level of space.
A plan was drawn up for
parking and that would allow
the smooth flow of traffic for
passengers. An area was also
designed to accommodate pas-
sengers waiting to board. "We


used an airline type model that
gave us control and made it
comfortable for passengers to
filter through as near seamless-
ly as possible," Mr Rolle said.
Asked whether the company
was considering adding any
routes in the short-term, Mr
Rolle said at this time there
were no route expansion plans
on the drawing board, with the
company planning instead to
maximize its existing routes.
Any decision made to add to
the number of existing routes,
keeping in mind all of the fac-
tors needed to maintain a suc-
cessful sea route, he said, would
be grounded in firm business
principles.
Meanwhile, noting the
relaunch of Cloud X Bahamas
Ferry service between Grand
Bahama and Wdst Palm Beach,
Mr Rolle acknowledged that.
the Grand Bahama market
needed that type of transporta-
tion.
He said if done properly the
company could be successful.
"Critical success depends on
having the right vessel and get-
ting the marketing right. Mar-
keting is always the biggest chal-
lenge in marine transportation,
particularly in markets like
Grand Bahama and interna-
tionally," he said.

Small business


chief calls for


more capital


* By YOLANDA
DELEVEAUX
Senior Business Reporter
DESCRIBING the $1 mil-
lion government-funded Ven-
ture Capital Fund as only one
dimension of the platform
required to meet the needs of
Bahamian entrepreneurs and
start-up ventures, Marlon John-
son, vice president of the
Bahamas Small Business Asso-
ciation, continued his call for
greater access to capital for the
small business sector.
In an interview with The Tri-
bune, Mr Johnson acknowl-
edged that the public was start-
ing to take advantage of the
venture capital fund, with the
fund administrators and board
members meeting on a regular
basis to process applications.
However, he said, Government
needed to look at the whole pic-
ture affecting Bahamian entre-
preneurs, pointing to the need
for a micro credit fund that
would assist persons looking for
a small loan.
"This would help those per-
sons who just need a $1,000 or
$5,000 loan, or the young moth-
er who wants to do some craft
work. This is a big deficiency
that other countries have
already learned how to deal
with. There is a wealth of infor-
mation at InterAmerican


Development Bank (IDB) on
this."
Mr Johnson also called for
the establishment of a Youth
Business Trust, and he urged
the Bahamas to emulate Bar-
bados where a similar fund,
aimed at young persons
between the ages of 18 and 30,
has been effective in reaching
and assisting young entrepre-
neurs.
Although the commercial
banking sector has been brand-
ed as unfriendly toward smaller
businesses and start-up ven-
tures, Mr Johnson said Gov-
ernment should look to insti-
tute policies that would provide
incentives to encourage the
banking sector to give credit to
small and rising businesses.
The vice president also said
that it was time for Government
to re-engineer its loan guaran-
tee programme and look to
merge the Bahamas Develop-
ment Bank and the Bahamas
Agricultural Industrial Corpo-
ration, ultimately creating a
more adequate and flexible loan
facility for small businesses.
Another area that Govern-
ment should review in an effort
to help the sector, is opening
up government contracts, he
said. Describing Government
as the buyer of a lot of goods

Kerzner share




buy-back likely




to boost value


0 By YOLANDA
DELEVEAUX
SSenior Business Reporter
BUY-back of up to two mil-
lion shares by Kerzner Inter-
national is expected to bode
well for Bahamian sharehold-
ers, with the share repurchase
programme likely to result in
an increase in the value of the
shares.
In an announcement onFri-
day, Kerzner's Board of
Directors were said to have
approved a share repurchase
programme authorizing the
company to purchase up to
two million of Kerzner's ordi-
nary shares. The company has
some 36 million shares out-
standing.
Jim Graham, vice president
of Fidelity Capital Markets,
said for companies that are
already performing well, the
buy back usually has a posi-
tive impact. He said that this
situation usually happens
when a company believes its
shares are priced too low, with
the result being that there are
fewer shares available on the
market for the benefit of the
shareholders.

i; There was brisk trading in the local mar-
ket this week as 42,135 shares changed
hands.
For the week, the market saw 10 out of its
19 listed stocks trade of which 3 advanced,
5 declined and 2 remained unchanged. The
volume leader for the week was First-
Caribbean International Bank Ltd. (CIB)
with 13,330 shares changing hands and
accounting for 32% of the total shares trad-
ed. CIB was also the big advancer for the
week, with an increase in share price of
$0.25, to close at its new 52-week high of
$9.30.
Also, advancing last week by $0.07 to
post a new 52-week high of $8.73 was Cable
Bahamas Ltd. On the down side, Doctors
Hospital Health Systems Ltd. and Com-
monwealth Bank Ltd. lost $0.24 and $0.17
respectively to close at $2.24 and $8.62.
COMPANY NEWS
Cable Bahamas Ltd. (CAB)- The tech-
nology giant continues to position itself as a
blue chip stock in fiscal 2005, by achieving
. another stellar performance for 2Q05. For


the six months, CAB posted a net income of
$6.8m, which represents an increase of
$1.2m or 22.20 per cent, while earnings per
share (EPS) rose by $0.06 year over year to
total $0.34 as at June 30 2005.
Net revenues climbed by $3.5M or
14.92% to total $27.7m, while expenses
increased by $1.4m or 11.52 per cent to
total $14.4m. Operating income stood at
$13.2m or $2.1m over 2004 figure of $11.1m.
Kerzner International Bahamian Depos-
itory Receipts (KZLB) -
This week Kerzner International Limited
(KZL) released their 2005 second quarter
results. During the quarter, diluted earn-
ings per share (EPS) was $0.28 compared to
$0.94 achieved in 2004, while adjusted EPS
was $0.98 compared to $0.92 achieved in
2004. .
The difference between diluted EPS and
adjusted EPS is based on the one time
expenses incurred during the quarter.
According to the KZL earnings release,
the primary one-time expenses were a $25m
impairment charged related to the


One&Only Maldives
at Reethi Rah Island operation, the $1.4m
pre-opening expenses associated with the
Marina Village at Altantis and a $4.8m pro-
vision
taken regarding a new claim made by a
supplier. The analysts at CIBC World Mar-
kets viewed these results as "Good" and
quoted a 12-18 month price target of $71.00.
This equates to a KZL BDR price of $7.10,
or $1.04 (17.4%) premium to today's closing
price of $5.96.
Kerzner International announced today
that its board of directors have approved a
share repurchase program. The program
will allow Kerzner International to buy
back two million ordinary shares.
Analysts consider that the move by
Kerzner International will have a positive
affect through reducing the company's
already small float.
This should, therefore, positively affect
the share price on the New York StockEx-
change, which will have a parallel affect on
the price of Kerzner International Deposi-
tory Receipts (KZLB), which trade in the
Bahamian local market..


Kerzner buy-back





could be good for




its shareholders


FROM page one
Fidelity would still treat Kerzner as a buy,
explained that there are many companies
that declare a buy-back, but never repur-
chase any of their stock. He added that if
Kerzner does repurchase its stock, then
the earnings per share, or value for the
remaining shareholders will increase.
Kerzner is currently selling at around $50
per share on the New York Stock
Exchange, while analysts have a targetL
price of $71.
If the company can buy its stock back at
a price of $60-$61, then it will be increas-
ing the value for its stockholders.


According to the Kerzner release, the
share repurchases will be made at man-
agement's discretion from time to time
in the open market through block trades
or otherwise.
It said further that depending upon
market conditions and other factors, share
repurchases may be commenced or sus-
pended at any time or from time to time
without prior written notice.
David Slatter, investment manager
pensions, Fidelity Merchant Bank and
Trust, said the announcement of a repur-
chase programme for two million shares
was seen as a positive development for
both the New York and Bahamas mar-

venture, remains wide open.
Company executives are
constantly reviewing potential
travel routes, but the challenge
remains to determine how any
new route will fit into the com-
pany's overall expansion plans.


Mr Rolle said that over the
past 12 months, the focus has
been internal, with efforts
being made to maximize core
routes. As part of this move,
the company also invested sig-
nificantly in making certain
that the infrastructure was in
place to better support its cur-
rent routes.


kets.
Describing Kerzner stocks as a rela-
tively thinly traded stock on the New
York Stock Exchange (NYSE), he said
the buy-back would bode well for the
share price.
He said also that Kerzner had good
prospects going forward, with results from
the last quarter very good, the Atlantis
Phase III, Dubai and Morocco develop-
ments, and a potential development in
Singapore.
At the end of the day, Mr Slatter said,
the repurchase programme should be
viewed as a positive development for
Bahamian shareholders.

and services, with as much
as 20 per cent of the coun-
try's economy tied up in gov-
ernment transactions, Mr
Johnson said there is a need
for a more competitive and
transparent environment.
He said this was a situation


that remained consistent
through various government
terms, and that many of the
contracting exercises were
not as transparent as they
should be.
A change in the format,
however, would provide a
significant boost for the
small business sector.

place finish in


final for


Lavern Eve


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
HELSINKI, Finland: While
Cuban world record holder
Osleidys Menedez needed just
one throw to increase her
world record, Bahamian
national record holder Lav-
ern Eve struggled to get one
good turn in.
At the 10th IAAF World
Athletic Championships in
Athletics, Eve's best throw -
187-feet, 4-inches on her
third attempt, could only land
her 10th overall in the wom-
en's javelin final.
It was a performance Eve
couldn't explain, considering
the fact that she was no way
near her season's best of 200-
6 that got her into the finals.
All she could say was: "I


Javelin thrower falls

short of her season's best


can't believe it, 57 metres. I
don't know. I just couldn't
find any rhythm. I was starting
off too fast, then I was run-
ning too slow and I couldn't
get any throws off. I just didn't
have it tonight."

Record
Menedez, the 25-year-old
Olympic champion who
became the first Cuban
woman to set a world record,
put together one throw- 235-3


- on her first attempt to sur-
pass her previous mark of 224-
7 1/2 for the gold to annihi-
%late the competition.
To make matters worse,
after the throw, she ran to the
spectators' stand and got a
Cuban flag as she celebrated,
even though there was still
five more rounds of throwing
left for eight of the 12 com-
petitors .
Unfortunately for Eve, she
didn't make the final eight cut,
but she said she wasn't dis-
tracted by all that was going


on around her either.
"Last year at the Olympics,
she threw 71 metres right
before me," she said. "So I'm
kind of used to her throwing
like that.
"It didn't get to me. Maybe
it did for the 'next person
behind her."
While Menedez was in a
league of her, the Cuba versus
Germany rivalry did come
through as Christina Obergfoll
set an area record 229-8 1/2
for the silver on her fourth
throw and her compatriot


Steffi Nerius claimed the
bronze with 216-5 on her first
attempt.
Eve, 40, said, "A lot of the
young girls were on today. I
don't know what happened. I
couldn't get any rhythm. I was
trying, but I couldn't feel it."

Difficult
The way the competition
was going, Eve knew that she
had to get a good throw in
from the break. But after she
fouled, she figured that it
would be more difficult for
her to survive.
Then, when she only came
up with 170-5 1/2 on her sec-
ond attempt, she realised that
she had to start packing her
bags. When she went out for


her third and final attempt,
just as she did with the previ-
ous two, she stopped midway
in her run-up and turned
around.
When she finally came out,
her best still wasn't good
enough to move up in the
standings and stay around for
the final three throws.
"All I was using was my
arms and that wasn't working
for me," she said.
"Instead of just letting it go,
I tried to power it too much. I
just kept stopping because I
couldn't get anything going."
Eve said she will just wait
to see if she will qualify for
any more meets, including the
IAAF World Athletics Final
in Monaco before she shuts
down her season.

Chandra's disappointment.




for her 4x100 teammates


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
HELSINKI, Finland: Sprinter Chan-
dra Sturrup has had time to reflect on the
moment she hurt her wrist and tumbled
over at the first exchange in the prelim-
inary round of the women's 100 metre
relay at the 10th IAAF World Champi-
onships in Athletics.
And, while she suffered a sprained
wrist, Sturrup said she was more disap-
pointed for her team-mates because
"they never got to run."
After she tumbled and fell on Friday
evening, lead off runner Timicka Clarke
could only jump over Sturrup, avoiding
a collision as the rest of the field took
flight down the back stretch.
Sturrup got up, realising the Bahamas'
chance of a medal had slipped away. But
she knew there wasn't anything else she
could do.
"It was such a freaky experience,"
Sturrup recalled.
"I had my hand held back when the
American girl (Angela Daigle) hit me,
causing me to flip over as I twisted my
wrist," said Sturrup, who will take an


Sprinter reflects on relay drama


MRI today to determine how severe the
injury is.
As an experienced relay runner, hav-
ing competed on the second leg of
numerous teams, including those that
won the World and Olympic gold
medals, Sturrup said, "My first thing was
to try and get up and complete the race.

Heavy
"But I realised that Timicka had
already jumped over me and my hand
was too heavy to lift, so I had to end up
staying there. But what really hit me
hard was the fact that the other girls did-
n't get to run. That had me bothered the
whole night."
The Bahamas team of Clarke, Stur-
rup, Sevatheda Fynes and P'hilippa
Arnett-Willie didn't finish the race and a
protest lodged by team manager Ralph
McKinney didn't go in their favour.
The American team, with Daigle on


the first leg and world champion 100
champion Lauryn
Williams on anchor, went on to post
the fastest time in the world as they
dethroned Jamaica as the world cham-
pions in the final.
While Jamaica, anchored by 100 silver
medalist Veronica Campbell, got the sil-
ver, Belarus came up with the bronze,
ahead of France, anchored by 100 and
200 bronze medalist Christine Aaron.
Once she got to the Athletes' Village,
Sturrup said she spent the night with the
other female members of the Bahamas
team.
"We were up all night talking a lot of
trash," she said. "But it still bothered
me. Right now it's still bothering me."
Having come so close to winning the
gold or at least medalling after leading
the women's 100 metre final for the first
75 will make these a memorable cham-
pionships for Sturrup.
But she put it all in perspective.
"Sometimes when you really want it


bad, you just don't get it," she said.
"Eventually when I relaxed and thought
about it all, it wasn't so bad. Everything
happens for a reason. What reason, I
really don't want to know. I just have
to look forward to the future and focus
on the rest of my season."
. While she has to do the MRI today,
Sturrup will also head to Zurich to com-
pete there on Friday. She also intends to
run in the World Athletics Final in
Monaco and wrap up her season at the
meet in China.
Sturrup's mother, Deborah Dean, who
was invited to come to Helsinki long
with the Ministry of Youth, Sports and
Culture delegation, despite her illness
with cancer, said it was just a delight to
watch her daughter compete again.
"Last year, because of my medical ill-
ness, I wasn't able to travel to Athens."
Dean reflected. "But to come this far, it
was just great.
"Whatever happens to her, she's
always a winner to me-."


Puerto Rico took that
division with a total score
of 270, one stroke ahead of
Trinidad and Tobago, who
finished up with 271.
In men's division, the
Bahamas' team of Scott
MacDougall, Peter McIn-
tosh, Oren Butler, Steven
Bain and George Swann
finished up eight overall
with a total of 1,258.
In round one, the team
shot a combined score of
333, and 311 in the second
round.
Top performances came
from Bain, who was tied
for the 21 spot, after shoot-
ing a combined round score
of 307.
The Bahamas, looking
for a three-peat victory in
the George Teale Cup at
the championships, had to
settle for fourth, 36 strokes
off the winning team of
Puerto Rico, Jamaica and
Trinidad and Tobago.
The team of Jameica
Duncombe, Raquel Riley
and Alena Hutchinson shot
off 637 to Puerto Rico's
601. Jamaica and Trinidad
and Tobago shot 619 and
621 respectively.
In the Ramon Baez divi-
sion, the mid-amateur for
men 35 and over, Puerto
Rico took the title with a
ten stroke victory over Bar-
bados and Jamaica, who
were tied fdr second place.
Barbados and Jamaica both
had scores of 285, coming
in fourth were St Kitts and
Nevis and Trinidad and
Tobago with 290.
The Bahamas was sev-
enth with 298.
The last two rounds of
the competition proved to
be too much for the
Bahamas, having shot 74
and 79, to Puerto Rico's 67.

Bahamas signs off in style


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
HELSINKI, Finland: The team
of Nathaniel McKinney, Avard
Moncur, Troy McIntosh .and
Andrae Williams posted the
Bahamas' name on the scoreboard
with the world leading time of two
minutes and 59.73 seconds to
advance to the final of the men's 4
x 400 metre relay on Saturday.
McKinney, Moncur, Williams
and Chris Brown came back on
Sunday and ran a national record
of 2:57.32 for second place behind
the United States' winning time of
2:56.91 and the Bahamas picked
up its second medal at the 10th
IAAF World Championships in
Athletics.
Despite a shaky exchange on
the second passover, their time
shattered the previous mark of
2:58.19 that the team of Moncur,
Brown, McIntosh and Tim
Munnings, with Carl Oliver as the
alternate, set back in Edmonton,
Canada in 2001.
Brown, who ran on the heels of
American Olympic and world 400
champion Jeremy Wariner from


Silver medal for


men's 4x400m


the moment he got the baton from,
Williams, admitted that it was
sweet to get another medal, regard-
less of the colour.

Tremendous

Thanking the Lord for allowing
him to come out healthy, he said,
"To run a national record with
these guys was just tremendous. I
knew something was up when they
ran 2:59 without me yesterday.
"So I said I couldn't allow them
to go out there and break the
record without me. So we just put
the pieces together and we came
up victorious.
"I knew Jeremy Wariner was a
strong guy, so I just tried to stay
with him and do what I had to do."


Normally only the four finalists
who run take a victory lap, but
nobody stopped McIntosh from
entering the track and joining his
team-mates as they all jogged
around, celebrating with the
Americans and the Jamaicans, who
claimed the bronze in a season's
best of 2:58.07.
And when the team went out
for their medals during the clos-
ing ceremonies, McIntosh was right
there on the podium, making sure
that he was a part of the entire cel-
ebrations. The only thing he
missed was the traditional press
conference that followed the cere-
mony.
The silver medal and the gold
by Tonique Williams-Darling in
the women's 400 metres enabled
the Bahamas to finish tied for 13th


with Estonia and the Netherlands.
The United States led the stand-
ings with 14 gold, eight silver and
three bronze.
-After missing a medal in the 400,
having to run out of lane eight
where he did a personal best of
44.48 for fourth, Brown said
he was willing to go after
Wariner, who he almost beat twice
this year.
Just before they had to rush out
to get their medals, Brown said
Wariner just "had a little bit more
than me, but we still got the silver
medal, so I'm happy."
The race was set up with McK-
inney running the lead off leg in
lane five against American 400 sil-
ver medalist Andrew Rock in
three and Jamaican Sanjay Ayre in
four. Once the race started, McK-
inney said he "went out with a pos-
itive mind arid he came through
with a positive result" as he passed
the baton off to Moncur just about
even with Rock to Derrick Brew.
"Those guys ran 44 in the open
400 and I was able to run a 44 split
with them today, so I was pleased,"
he stated.
Once Moncur got the baton, he


was able to get off the turn first
and held the lead.
Coming to the line, he and
Williams had a poor exchange.
Moncur, however, said he knew
that they would keep their com-
posure and eventually medal.
For him, it was just good to be
back on the track after having
two consecutive-injury prone sea-
sons.

Debut
Willliams, the national record
holder who didn't run as well as
he's capable of, failing to advance
out of the first round of the 400 in
his big international debut, said,
"Running on this team really
made up for it. And to do it in a
national record time was even
sweeter."
Making up for the shaky
exchange, Williams was able to go
after American Darold
Williamson, while holding off
Jamaican Lansford Spence to bring
the baton to Brown right in the
mix of things.
Wariner, however, eot out first


and Brown stuck right on him with
Jamaican Davian Clarke sitting on
his back.
But Wariner proved why he's'
the best quarter-miler in the world
this year.
The United States ended up
with the WL (world leading) on
the end of their time, but the
Bahamas came out with a NR
(national record).
The Americans knew they were
in a battle. Just ask Rock, who not-
ed: "They ran awesome.
"They were with us the whole
way. They gave us a battle. I knew
they were tough. Chris Brown
obviously ran great in the open
quarter. He stayed right therewith
Jeremy."
Wariner said they didn't want
to take the Bahamas for granted,
especially with Brown on his lead.
"He's a great competitor. He
almost medalled in the 400, but I
knew he was going to be on my
back.
"At the 200, 1 looked up on the
monitor and I noticed him and
Jamaica right there, so I just had to
stay ocussed and run the final
200t."

The stories behind the news


Olympic golden medallist Tonique
another gold medal last week, this
time at the 10th IAAF World
Championships in Helsinki, Fin-
land. In what will go down as one
of the most thrilling finals,
Williams-Darling overcame the
drenching rain and a determined
American world leader, Sanya
Richards, in a season's best of
49.55 seconds to snatch the gold
medal in 400m race.


PLACES


The Immigration Department
clamped down on illegal immigrants
working in the Straw Market last
Friday in a raid that netted dozens
of non-Bahamians. Last week's
raid followed a warning by Trade
and Industry Minister Leslie Miller
who said his ministry would
revoke the licences of Bahamians
caught hiring illegal immigrants
to work for them at the down-
town market...


An American was accused last week of smuggling
radioactive material from Florida to the Bahamas,
allegedly intended for Freeport's Bahamas Oil Refin-
ing Company.
The Miami Herald reported that Harold DeGregory
Jr, 58, appeared in federal magistrate's court in Miami
last Wednesday after a grand jury in Fort Lauderdale
returned an eight-count indictment charging him with
conspiracy to transport and smuggle property con-
taining Iridium-192. The oil company acquired the
Iridium-196 from an American company and Mr
DeGregory's company was then responsible for getting
the material to the Bahamas, the court was told...

But is Ingraham still top contender?
'

Free National Movement
insiders returning from
Grand Bahama Port
Authority's 5.0th
anniversary celebrations
were abuzz with conjecture over
Hubert Ingraham and the party lead-
ership.
The impression they had formed
was that the formidable ex-premier
would not return as party leader
unless persuaded to so do so through
a process of acclamation.
If there was any sniff of opposi-
tion, any serious suggestion of dis-
sent, it was unlikely the erstwhile
leviathan of centre politics would be
tempted out of his lair to lead the
party into another election campaign,
they said.
"What Hubert doesn't want is a
fight on the convention floor this
coming November," said an FNM
source. "And the truth is that there
would be a fight because the younger
generation is now coming through."
If this inside intelligence is correct
and Mr Ingraham himself main-
tains a stolid silence on the subject -
the likelihood is that the FNM lead-
ership will be a three-man race come
the fall.
Turnquest, Foulkes and Bethel -
all in the prime of life and gagging at
the bit are now seen by FNMs in
the know as the likeliest candidates
for the top job.
And, given the PLP's less-than-
glittering reign since 2002, it's at least
an even chance that the winner out of
this trio will go on to become the
next prime minister of the Bahamas.
Mr Symonette's decision to count
himself out of the contest disap-
pointed FNM groupies out east, but
came as no surprise to informed
observers close to the party pulse.
"The race thing is still a big prob-
lem for Brent," said one, who
believes it's still too early for a white
scion of the old Bay Street oligarchy
to emerge at the very top of Bahami-.
an politics.
"He probably felt race would
become the issue if he took part, and
he wouldn't want that. Perhaps it's


* CARL BETHEL


just a bit too early for someone like
Brent to come through.
"However, at 53, he doesn't have
that many chances left. Maybe if he
served as deputy for a time, he might
get a better 'take' on how things
stand."
There is no doubt Mr Symonette
has support in some areas of the
FNM, but the vast majority of grass-
roots members are thought to favour
contenders who will not carry the
taint of old Bay Street into the fray.
A party analyst said: "It is felt that
Brent was strongest before the con-


vention in 2003. There is no doubt
that some people were quite excited
at the idea of his becoming leader
then.
"However, I think that excitement
has now worn thin. If he runs as
deputy, he could still emerge as a
very strong contender. It really
depends on who else emerges. As
deputy, though, he would have a
chance to reposition himself.
"At 53, it isn't too late for him to
eventually get the top job. From the
deputy's position, he might well re-
establish himself as a force and make


M DION FOULKES


the race issue irrelevant."
Carl Bethel, a former FNM attor-
ney general, has been trying to build
a power-base for some time and must
be considered a possible contender
when the leadership election comes
around.
Traditionally, he has always been
seen as someone who was aligned to
other camps. Now it's likely his sup-
,porters will urge him to carry his own
torch into battle.
"Carl is 45 now and has nothing
to lose," said a party insider. "as par-
ty chairman, he is bound to play a


major role. I know he is going to run,
for something."
Tommy Turnquest, an Ingraham
. protege who_ has now led the party
for nearly four years, still sees himself
as the man of the future, though
many FNMS already view him as a
figure of the past:
"In the time he has been in charge,
he really needed to put his personal
stamp on the party," said the insider,
"but there is a general feeling that
the party has been stagnant under
his control.
"The party is not as aggressive as it
should be. Internally, it is not organ-
ised and there is nothing happening.
Listening to the majority of FNMs,
he is likely to have 'a very difficult
time if he wants to push his leader-
ship credentials."
That leaves Dion Foulkes, a for-
mer Cabinet minister who has for-
mally announced his interest in the
leadership and is now holding a series
of private and public meetings to gar-
ner support.
At 50, with several years of gov-
ernmental experience behind him,
Mr Foulkes is unlikely to be a
pushover when the rough-and-tum-
ble begins at convention time.
He sees himself as the favourite
and his supporters believe only
Ingraham himself would have any
chance of eclipsing him. With an
effective organising committee
already in place, his campaign is in
earnest and, it seems, at full throttle.
An FNM source said: "As things
stand now, Dion is the one who has
seized the initiative and the indica-
tions are that he commands quite a
lot of support. He might prove to be
a tough one to dislodge.
"Ingraham's non-participation
would certainly help his cause. Those
who think his stand is merely a ploy
to become Ingraham's deputy are
wrong. He's in this one for himself -
he believes very strongly that he can
win."
If all the foregoing represents the
conventional view from within the

party, there are others who
see things very differently
indeed.
In fact, all the current
machinations and manoeu-
vreings are viewed by sceptics
as no more than a carefully
orchestrated charade designed
to smooth the way for Mr
Ingraham.
The bold declaration of
intent by Mr Foulkes, the
tenacity in the face of adver-
sity from Mr Turnquest, and
the threatened involvement of
Mr Bethel are in the eyes of
the doubters no more than a
*preparatory smokescreen for
an Ingraham comeback. ,
By jockeying for position,
the Young Turks are increas-
ing their leverage once the ex-
premier is back in the mix,
they say. In other words, by
testing their own level of sup-
port, they are strengthening
their own hands when the
time comes to barter whatev-
er power they can muster for a
position in the new Ingraham
set-up.

"If you follow this theory,
you can expect an Ingraham-
Symonette pairing in the off-
ing, with the others jostling
for shadow Cabinet rank in
anticipation of an FNM elec-
tion victory," said one source.
"When the 2007 general
election comes around, I still
see Christie versus Ingraham
as the likeliest match," he
added.
And an Ingraham-Symon-
ette "dream team" is still
regarded as the likeliest FNM
pairing by the time the elec-
tors go to the polls. Many see
this combination as virtually
unassailable, especially as the
Christie administration con-
tinues to appear lackadaisical
and undisciplined.
Ingraham, loathed and
admired by conflicting FNM
factions, enjoys a reputation
for getting things done. That's
his saving grace, and the qual-
ity that could propel him back
to power.
As the FNM leadership
issue now builds towards a
November climax, speculation
remains rife around the PLP's
upper echelons. "Will Christie
run?" is the question still
echoing round the party's
membership. t
Out of courtesy, conjecture
surrounding the prime minis-
ter's health following his
stroke has now been damp-
ened down, at least publicly.
But there is still genuine con-
cern among the party faithful
about his capacity to function
consistently at the highest lev-
el.
Reports vary on his welfare.
Some say he is fine, others
that he is prone to fatigue.
S6me say he is sharp and
savvy, others that he is slower
and occasionally out of the
loop.
If Christie decides against
the rigours of a tense election
campaign and opts for retire-
ment, Tourism Minister Obie
Wilchcombe and Deputy
Prime Minister Cynthia Pratt
look like frontrunners for the
succession.
Perceptions change on
almost a weekly basis, but Mr
Wilchcombe is now emerging
consistently as the man-of-the-
moment in the PLP, with Mrs
Pratt also seen as a viable PM-
in-waiting after her successful
spell as Christie's substitute
during the height of his illness.
Cabinet ministers Vincent
Peet and Fred Mitchell remain
outside chances.
With the election now less
than two years away, every-
thing appears to be up for
grabs in the two major par-
ties.
However, the most enig-
matic political figure of all
remains Dr Bernard Nottage,
a man rated highly on both
sides but who is mired in no
man's land. He is the arche-
typal Swiss admiral he has a
ship, albeit a very small one,
but nowhere to sail it.
Touted by observers as. a
possible leader of either party,
he occupies, in fact, a mean-
ingless role in charge of a no-
hope fringe group called the
Coalition for Democratic
Reform.
Like Mr Paul Adderley
before him, Dr Nottage has
squandered his potential on
forlorn political gestures.
Whether he can find a niche
with real power remains one
of the most intriguing ques-
tions hanging over the mod-
ern Bahamas political scene.
"Certainly if he wanted to
join the FNM he would find a
worthwhile role in the upper
reaches of the party," said one
party source. "But there is no
chance of him being a leader-
ship contender not at this
stage of the game, anyway."

MONTAGU MP Brent
Symonette will not contest the
leadership of his party at the
next FNM convention, it was
announced last week.
However, he did not rule
out the possibility of running
for a deputy leader's post.
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."
Mr Symonette did, however,
confirm that he would offer as
a candidate for the Montagu
constituency at the next elec-
tion, should his constituency
association so wish.
Regarding the position of
leader of the FNM, Mr
Symonette said he had given
the matter considerable
thought. He acknowledged
that the announcement would
disappoint many people, but
hoped his many supporters
and well wishers would respect
his decision.
Mr Symonette's announce-
ment last Wednesday brought
to end months of speculation.

OLYMPIC gold medallist
Tonique Williams-Darling
captured another gold medal
last week, this time at the 10th
IAAF World Championships
in Helsinki, Finland.
In what will go down as one
of the most thrilling finals,
Williams-Darling overcame
the drenching rain and a deter-
mined American world leader,
Sanya Richards, in a season's
best of 49.55 seconds to snatch
the gold medal in 400m race.
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 sil-
ver, and just ahead of Kenya
with a silver and three bronzes.
It was only the fourth -time
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
Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1995,
20 minutes before Pauline
Davis-Thompson claimed the
first silver medal in the wom-
en's 400.
Williams-Darling captured
her first Olympic gold medal
at last summer's games in
Athens, Greece.


THE Immigration Depart-
ment clamped down on illegal
immigrants working in the
Straw Market last Friday in a
raid that netted dozens of non-
Bahamians.
Last week's raid followed a
warning by Trade and Industry
Minister Leslie Miller who said
his ministry would revoke the
licences of Bahamians caught
hiring illegal immigrants to
work for them at the down-


II INSPECTOR WILSON brings the traffic

their nationality and immigration status.


town market.
He said that while he knows
that many of the Bahamian
owners of stalls lease to for-
eigners who may have work
permits, there may be several
illegal elements operating
there.
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.


AN AMERICAN was
accused last week of smuggling
radioactive material from
Florida to the Bahamas,
allegedly intended for
Freeport's Bahamas Oil Refin-
ing Company.
The Miami Herald reported
that Harold DeGregory Jr, 58,
appeared in federal magis-
trate's court in Miami last


Wednesday after a grand jury
in Fort Lauderdale returned
an eight-count indictment
charging him with conspiracy
to transport and smuggle prop-
erty containing Iridium-192.
The oil company acquired the
Iridium-196 from an Ameri-
can company and Mr DeGre-
gory's company was then
responsible for getting the
material to the Bahamas, the
court was told.
Iridium-196 is a byproduct


.ofl&uclear energy that nor-
ilially looks like small silvery-
,,:white pellets. It is used to
detect the location of certain
cancers or to test pieces of
metal to detect weaknesses.
Although Iridium-192 has
legitimate industrial uses, it
can pose public health risks if
not properly handled.
Since 9/11, law enforcement
and government officials in the
US are playing closer atten-
tion to such materials because


of warnings that they could be
used in terrorist attacks. Iridi-
um-192 is considered 'a high
security risk isotope, accord-
ing to the website for the Cen-
tre for Nonproliferation Stud-
ies at the Monterey Institute
for International Studies in
California.
Experts say that Iridium-192
could not be used to make a
nuclear weapon, but a terrorist
could use a large quantity to
make a "dirty bomb".


Quotes of tbhe Week


"Todayv was the post of leader.
Tomorrow is another day. I am not rul-
ing out th possibility that I may run
for another position mn the party at this
time."
Montagu MP Brent Symonette
announced last week that he would not
contest the FNM leadership at the par-
ty's convention later this year. How-
ever, Mr Symonette said that he had
not ruled outrunning for another post.
"There are many Bahamians who


have big time jobs in banks and thing,
but may have hired foreigners,to work at
their stalls fr little-a-nuttin at the straw
market. But even though some^of them
lie like hell, we are trying to clean that
up. "
Trade and Industry Minister
Leslie Miller promised last week to
revoke the licences of straw market
vendors who hire illegal immigrants to
work at their stalls. Days after Mr
Miller's warning, the Department of
Immigration carried out a raid on the .


downtown straw market.
"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 honoured to be
here."
Olympic gold medallist Tonique
Williams-Darling speaking less than an
hour after winning the gold medal in
women's 400m at the IAAF World
Championships in Helsinki, Finland.:

VENEZUELA AND CHINA



In ideology, oil,



2 nations find



common ground


Mu18


I -


it*e howp it's over'


* The ideological journeys
of China and Venezuela
seem to have brought the
two together at a time
when one needs energy re-
sources and the other
wants energy partners.
BY STEVEN DUDLEY
sdudley@herald.com
CARACAS These days,
it seems as if China and Vene-
zuela are moving toward the
same point but from opposite
ends of a vast ocean.
China is the socialist state
that has a thriving industrial
sector and is embracing ele-
ments of capitalism; Venezu-
ela is the capitalist country
with massive oil reserves that
is starting to talk more and
more of socialism.
Their ideological journeys
seem to have brought the two
together at a time when one is
in need of energy resources
and the other is looking for
new energy partners. And the
results of this emerging rela-
tionship could influence the
global balance of power for
decades to come.
The partnership has
already begun with promises
to build energy infrastructure
in China and develop social
projects in Venezuela. The
Venezuelan government has
said it would like to double
economic traffic between the
two nations and hit $3 billion
by next year.
Fittingly, the deal is being.
consummated with a journey
over the sea. In May, the first
tanker with 1.8 million barrels
of crude left Venezuela for
China part of a Caracas
pledge to supply 30,000 bar-
rels per day to China's starv-
ing market.
DIVERSIFICATION
Critics say this Venezuelan
effort to diversify its roster of
clients makes for short-term
folly because its natural cus-
tomer is the much-closer
United States, while support-
ers argue it makes long-term
sense because China's market
promises a much bigger appe-
tite in the years to come.
In the end, it may be a bit of
both.
Chinese trade to Latin
America has boomed in recent
years. Even if, as a recent
Goldman Sachs report indi-
cated, it hasn't been wholly
positive for the region espe-
cially for local textile markets
in Mexico and Central Amer-
ica it has opened up new
possibilities, in particular for
countries with vast natural
resources like Venezuela.
Venezuelan President
Hugo Chavez has made no
secret of his' intentions to
increase oil exports to China, a
country he lauds as he pulls
his country toward socialism.
Chavez visited China in Janu-
ary and signed several letters
of intent to exchange capital
and open up the Venezuelan
oil market for Chinese explo-
ration and production pro-
jects, as well as develop natu-
ral gas fields and upgrade
petrochemical plants.
Chavez a self-described
socialist who has begun to cre-
ate state-run industrial pro-
jects and appropriate private
lands has also openly stated
that he is seeking to break
Venezuela's dependence on
U.S. purchases.
Venezuela sends the United
States 60 percent of the esti-
mated 2.6 million barrels per
day it produces. China repre-
sents the new frontier for his
country's most important
product oil is half of Vene-
zuela's GDP.
"We have been producing
and exporting oil for more
than 100 years, but they have
been years of dependence on
the United States," Chavez
said in January.
"Now we are free and we
make our resources available
to the great country of China,"
he added, making no effort to
hide his admiration for the
Beijing model.
On the surface, it makes lit-
tle economic sense for Vene-
zuela to begin shifting crude
exports toward Asia. Demand
for crude remains steady in
the U.S. market, which oil

tankers can reach in just five
days. There is a large refining
network, including that of
Venezuelan state-oil company
PDVSA's downstream arm,
Citgo, in the United States,
which can handle the heavy
crude that accounts for much
of Venezuelan exports.
China, on the other hand, is
45 days away. Some analysts
estimate that in transportation
alone, Venezuela would be
losing between $5 and $10 per
barrel compared to shipments
to the United States.
"It doesn't make any
sense," said Alberto Bernal, an
analyst with the Singapore-
based IDEAglobal. "But it
doesn't seem to matter to him
because [Chavez] is crazy. He
has a utopic way of looking at
things."
'GEOPOLITICAL WEAPON'
Chavez does often see eco-
nomic policies through a polit-
ical lens. He has even called oil
"a geopolitical weapon." He is
providing Cuba and many
other Caribbean nations with
heavily subsidized oil to win
allies, and is seeking to
increase oil ties to natural
competitors like Brazil and
Argentina.
The government has also
expressed interest in selling
pieces of Citgo, claiming the
company is subsidizing the
Bush administration. And
while demand for crude in
China is rising tremendously,
China currently does not have
the refining technology to deal
with Venezuelan heavy crude.
Analysts believe it would
be Venezuela and not China,
who would take the loss on
this deal.
"It seems very clear that
they are willing to relinquish
some of the economic value,"
said Alberto Ramos, a senior
analyst on Latin America for
Goldman Sachs, referring to
the Venezuelans. "It follows
more of a political rationality,
than an economic rationality."
The Venezuelan govern-
ment, however, look at this as
a golden opportunity to diver-
sify the country's market and
make friends with a more
ideologically similar atuned
counterpart.
A high-level PDVSA offi-
cial, who spoke on condition
of anonymity because he is not
authorized to speak publicly to
the media, told The Herald
that analysts are making short-
term assumptions about a
long-term project with a part-
ner that has massive potential
for continued growth.
He also said PDVSA would
swap oil a practice of trad-
ing products with third par-
ties, .in this case Russia, Indo-
nesia, and Australia rather
than shipping all the oil across
the Pacific. He added that
Venezuela was not going to
cut the United States out as a
buyer.
"The United States looks to
diversify its buyers and sellers.
Why shouldn't we?" he said.

WIN-WIN SITUATION?
Indeed, analysts say both
the United States and Venezu-
ela could stand to diversify
their markets and create what
Goldman Sach's Ramos calls a
"win-win" situation.
"In the end, we have to see
this from a macro-oil perspec-
tive," he said. "If there's a
shortage in one place, there
will be a surplus somewhere
else. So it's not anything to be
scared about."
Still, there are question
marks, not least of which is the
health of Venezuela's oil
industry. For exports to China
to make economic sense, Ven-
ezuela would have to increase
production. But currently the
country, and in particular
PDVSA, seems to be going in
.the opposite direction.
"It's not a good idea to use
China to replace the American
market right next door, espe-
cially if you don't have a pol-
icy to expand production,"
said Alberto Quir6s, a former
Shell and PDVSA executive.
"Without this, it's neither real-
istic nor economic."
Herald special correspon-
dent Phil Gunson contributed
to this report.
