Claims against

operation under

late founder


Colombian fruits of labour on show


* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter __
A FORMER patient of the All
Saint's AIDS Camp has come for-
ward with disturbing claims about
the way the camp operated under
its founder, the late Reverend,
Glenroy Nottage.
Patients at the camp for
HIV/AIDS victims were made to
do manual labour and are barred
from visiting a doctor, the source
claimed.
It was also claimed that the
camp was subject to a strict disci-
plinary regime when food was
sometimes withheld from patients
as punishment.
The patient has called on gov-
ernment to take over the opera-
tion of the facility to ensure that
these practices are discontinued
now that the camp's founder is
dead.
However, Dr Marcus Bethel,
Minister of Health, told The Tri-
bune yesterday that there are no
plans by government to operate
the facility.
"The All Saints Camp is a pri-
vate non-governmental organisa-
tion and it is for the management
of the facility to make changes,
not a matter for government to
take over. If the organisation feels
that there is need for government
assistance, there is a process to
go through," he said.
Dr Bethel said that the fight
against AIDS involves many and
all sectors of society so all efforts
are appreciated.
"The government cannot do
everything so it has to rely on pri-
vate organisations to help," he
Said.
SThe patient, who left the camp


some time ago, said the decision
not to let patients see a doctor
was taken because of Rev Not-
tage's tendency to forbid patients
from attending the AIDS clinic
at the Princess Margaret Hospital.
"If they asked to go to the clin-
ic Rev Nottage would tell them
'no'. The same thing is going on
now. People could die if they
don't get their medicine," he said.
According to the patient, Dr
Nottage's mind-over-matter phi-
losbphy was the reasoning behind
his preventing persons seeing a
doctor.
"He did not believe in medi-
cine or doctors, he believed in the
power of the mind having full
control over your healing and so
forth, but it doesn't work that way
with HIV," he said.
I Currently, he said, there is a
heed for material and food at the
camp which the current adminis-
tration is not providing.
"I know right now they always
run short of pampers. The
patients don't get a full course,
meal. They get cookies and corn
flakes for dinner that was one of
the reasons we left also," he said.
Another cause of concern, he
said, was the heavy work schedule
at the camp, which was followed
during the life of Rev, Nottage.
The former patient thinks that
things must now change.
"The work schedule starts at 5
am and you work in the yard, like
cutting bush and weeding, until
breakfast that's if they decide to
give you breakfast and then after
that you immediately go back to
work and you work up until 4 pm

Man found guilty
of archdeacon's
murder in retrial
* By NATARIO McKENZIE
A RETRIAL of the now 27-
year-old man accused of the 2000
shooting death of Archdeacon
William Thompson ended late
yesterday afternoon with a jury
once again finding him guilty of
murder.
In December of 2002 Neil
Brown, formerly of Peter Street,
was sentenced to death after a
jury of eight women and four men
found him guilty of the murder
of Archdeacon William Thomp-
son.
The trial took place before Jus-

Dwight Major 'makes allegations' against magistrate


* By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
ACCORDING to applica-
tions filed with the Supreme
Court Registry, Dwight Major
is insisting that he cannot have a
fair trial in the drugs court and
has made "serious allegations"


against the magistrate of that
court.
On Major's behalf, his lawyers
Michael Kemp and Donna
Major filed applications with the
Supreme Court Registry for a
stay of the proceedings before
Magistrate Carolita Bethell.
The lawyers claim to have
been told by an officer of the


Registry that no judge would
take the case.
While the Registry would nei-
ther confirm nor deny whether
this claim was accurate, an offi-
cer did tell The Tribune yester-
day that the motion was filed
and to date, they are still await-

and reportedly stayed in Nas-
sau Harbour until midnight.
According to witnesses, Mr
Burrows disappeared at about
11.40pm, just 20 minutes before
the boat cruise was scheduled
to dock.
According to Inspector Wal-
ter Evans, police are still not
able to confirm that Mr Bur-
rows drowned as a result of
going overboard. He said an


Body found off Arawak Cay identified


autopsy scheduled to be per-
formed later this week will assist
in establishing the cause of
death.
Yesterday, Terran's father
and sister spoke with The Tri-
bune about his life and about
the terrible void his death now
leaves in their close-knit family.
Desiree Bain described her
brother as a gentle, humble and


kind-hearted person. "He
always thought about others
before himself and he did every-
thing for you when asked."
Ms Bain said she had spoken
with her brother, an employee
of Battery and Tyre, earlier that
weekend, but never dreamed
that would be the last time they
would speak.
She said none of her family


- her parents, Neville and Sta-
cy, sister, two brothers and
grandmother can believe that
the tragedy happened.
"We were a very close family
and this has hit us hard, none of
us is doing too well," she said.
Ms Bain said that one of the
hardest things for her to accept
is the manner in which Terran
died. "We still do not know
exactly what happened, so it will
take a while for me to accept
that he is gone, but the way he
did, it is just killing me."
She added that Terran and


his father had recently planned
to invest in some Family Island
property. They had a very
strong bond, she said.
Terran's father, Neville Bur-
rows, said his family is allowing
police to complete their inves-
tigations into his death and will
not speculate on how it
occurred.
For them, the reality is simply
that a beloved family member is
gone.
"We won't question God,
because he only takes the best,"
said Ms Bain, "but it is hard."

Tropical storm hits fuel prices


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
TROPICAL Storm Katrina, which began forming
over the Bahamas on Tuesday, caused fuel prices to
hit a global record high yesterday.
Concerns that Katrina, the 11th named storm of
the season, might hit oil production sites in the Gulf
of Mexico is being held responsible for the price of
oil soaring above $67 per barrel.
Although forecasters are predicting that Katrina
will only be a weak category one hurricane when it
reaches the Florida coastline, storm fears also trig-
gered a rally in natural gas futures, the Associated
Press reported.
A further consequence of the storm system was
Bahamasair cancelling all of its flights yesterday
afternoon.
The centre of Tropical Storm Katrina was posi-
tioned directly over New Providence at 3.30pm yes-
terday, bringing heavy rains and winds to the capital.
Speaking with The Tribune, Chief Meteorology
Officer Basil Dean said that the rain was expected to
continue throughout the afternoon, let up towards.
evening and resume in the early morning hours of
today.
"These rains are really the crux of it for us, we
won't be experiencing much more than this. It's
actually the Eastern islands like Cat Island and
Eleuthera that are experiencing heavier (rains),"
he said.
Mr Dean said that Katrina is expected to have
moved past the Bahamas by Friday.
He added that three to five inches of cumulative
rain is expected before the storm leaves the


Bahamas.
A tropical storm warning remained in effect yes-
terday for the Central and Northwest BaHamas,
with additional warnings being issued for the middle
to upper Florida Keys, the Southeast Florida coast
from Vero Beach and southward to Florida City,
including Lake Okeechobee.
At press time last night, the storm was located 45
miles Northeast of ,Nassau, moving toward the
Northwest at 9mph with maximum sustained winds
of 45mph.


Arrest in stabbing

investigation
FOLLOWING leads in the stabbing of a
Freeport man, Grand Bahama police have arrest-
ed a 38-year-old male resident of Explorer's Way.
The man was detained by police on Tuesday.
His 29-year-old wife was also arrested for alleged-
ly obstructing officers during her husband's arrest.
Police say formal charges are expected in the
next few days.
According to information received by police,
Michael Hall, the 26-year-old stabbing victim,
was on Weddell Avenue near Garden Villas on
Sunday when he was confronted by the suspect.
A heated argument ensued during which the
suspect allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed
Mr Hall in his face, upper left arm and left wrist
as he tried to ward off the blows.

New trade avenues opened with Colombia


* By KARAN MINNIS

NEW avenues of bi-lateral
trade between the Bahamas and
Colombia were opened yesterday
when a delegation from the South
American country launched a
product exhibition in New Provi-
dence.
Speaking at the grand opening
of the exhibition, Minister of For-
eign Affairs Fred Mitchell said he
is happy that the project came to
fruition.
"Let me first welcome those
from Colombia who have traveled
here for this unique exhibition," he
said. "Within the ministry we were
trying to determine whether some-
thing like this had been done
before. If it has been done before,
then it is still sufficiently rare that
this event is special indeed."
According to Mr Mitchell the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs is hap-
py to encourage any venture that
can expand the range of contacts
and opportunities for Bahamians
overseas.
"It is our mission to make sure


that Bahamians have these oppor-
tunities worldwide and that the
passage toward those opportuni-
ties is eased wherever Bahamians
may go," he said.
He stated said that in the next
few months he hopes to able to
announce in conjunction with the
minister of Trade and Industry,
new initiatives in the are of over-
seas trading.

Expanding

"I think that this effort today
shows that the horizons of
Bahamians are expanding, and I
was particularly impressed by a
recent announcement made by the
new president of the Chamber of
Commerce about joining a possi-
ble delegation to India in the New
Year."
According to Mr Mitchell, rela-
tions between Colombia and the
Bahamas are good.
"I have a good working rela-
tionship with the minister of For-
eign Affairs of Colombia," he said.
"Last year the Bahamas was able


through the Organisation of
American States Peace Fund to
make a modest donation for the
enhancement of the peace process
in Colombia for which I received
the personal thanks of the minis-
ter.",
He added that he had also had
the honour of recently meeting
the president of Colombia when
he represented Prime Minister
Christie at a recent heads of gov-
ernment meeting in Panama.
"I hope that all of this together
means that those who have come,
feel that they have come to a
nation that is friendly and wel-
coming," he said.
"It is our philosophy that all


those who believe in the democ-
ratic traditions must encourage
legitimate travel and trade and
enhance those opportunities with
the least barriers.
"That is what I hope that this
exhibition will help in thai
regard."
Mr Mitchell said he hopes that
the members of the Colombian
delegation will go home "with
many orders in their pockets."
The trade exhibition, which is
being held at the Church of God
Auditorium on Joe Farrington
Road, is scheduled to be open
until September 4 and according.
to Mr Mitchell, is bound to be a
"grand success".

FNM parliamentary hopeful: Bahamas


should tread carefully with Venezuela


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
AS US concern once again
focuses on Venezuela, the Bahamas
should tread cautiously in its rela-
tionship with that country, one par-
liamentary hopeful said yesterday.
Anthony Musgrove, FNM hope-
ful for Exuma, warned that the US
State Department will be taking
note of the fact that the Bahamas
signed the PetroCaribe accord with
Venezuela.
"Over the past few weeks, high-
ranking US government officials -
Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice and Defence Secretary'Don-
ald Rumsfield have publicly
declared that they are concerned
with what is going on in the hemi-

sphere, especially where leftist gov-
ernments are concerned -
Venezuela and Cuba," he said.
Mr Musgrove explained that
although the US foreign policy is
now primarily focused on the Mid-
dle East and on China and North
Korea, it would be "unwise for
Bahamian leaders to believe that
they could do whatever suits their
personal perception of international
politics without considering how
their action would impact our rela-
tionship with our 'friends'."
He pointed out that the US can
not hope to successfully fight
threats to global security, if the
same problems they are fighting
against are allowed to fester in their
own back yard in countries such as
the Bahamas.
"While we all agree that the US
will not invade the Bahamas, the
actions of the Christie administra-
tion has obviously gotten height-
ened visibility by the State Depart-
ment because of the persistent
action of several cabinet ministers,"
he said.

Question
Mr Musgrove said the question
of whether the Bahamas should
forge a close relationship with
Venezuela should be closely con-
sidered, as "we know that Presi-
dent Hugo Chavez' ambition is to
be the hemispheric alternative to
the United States and he is using oil
as his leverage."
Following the signing of Petro-
Caribe in June, international ana-
lysts raised the concern that the
language contained in the agree-
ment indicates that the oil agree-
ment is only the first step in estab-
lishing the Bolivarian Alternative
for the Americas (ALBA), an alter-
native to the US' Free Trade Area -
of the Americas (FTAA).
However, Minister of Trade and
Industry Leslie Miller has assured
the public that the Bahamas has


not taken any steps to join ALBA,
and has simply signed an agree-
ment which will bring the Bahamas
cheaper oil.
Mr Musgrove yesterday said that
he appreciated what Mr Miller is
trying to achieve, but added that
the 'pros and cons' should have
carefully weighed.
"I understand what Minister
Miller is trying to do, trying to low-
er the cost of oil in the Bahamas,
but in this case we should really
consider what consequences it will
have," he said.
Commentators also expressed
concern that the US will take notice
and react to the fact that the
Bahamas has signed an arrange-
ment which includes not only pop-
ulist president Chavez, but also
Cuba.
On Monday, well-known Amer-
ican religious broadcaster Pat
Robertson even went so far as to
suggest that US operatives should
assassinate Mr Chavez to stop
Venezuela from becoming a


"launching pad for communist infil-
tration and Muslim extremism."
Mr Robertson yesterday apolo-
gised for the statement, and while
US government officials disassoci-
ated themselves from his com-
ments, the incident has led to the
media and the country increase its
focus on Venezuelan politics and
its position in the South America.

Prudent
Mr Musgrove said that even
though the Bahamas is a sovereign
state, "our leaders should be more
cognisant and realise that we must
be. prudent in the nations we decide
to form alliances with."
"As a progressive people,
Bahamians need to determine
whether offendig ouTr tried, tested
and true fri. te -is t .oer
national inter-s o g. t
we prepare t6o ea rori nk somfie $
thing, we need to think about
where it was made."

Big plans for Bahamas Rugby Union


TONIGHT the Bahamas Rugby Union
votes for a new board as its chairman BJ
Saunders completes his two-year term
and steps down to make way for a suc-
cessor.
The new board will continue the union's
ambitious plans to build a Sports and Edu-
cational Centre on the union's eight and a
half acres of land at Winton.
Mr Saunders is proud that during his
tenure, the Bahamas won the first quali-
fying round to represent the Caribbean
at Rugby's World Cup meet in 2007. He
was particularly pleased that this distinc-
tion was won with an all-Bahamian team
under all Bahamian managers.
As he pointed out, rugby is no longer an
expatriates' game. It's a game that has
been taken to Bahamian youth, both black
and white. This he credits to Stephen
Thompson, the union's secretary of 10
years and loyal player for 20 years, and
Stephen's friend, Keith Saunders, who
was himself a player. Keith Saunders, who
is with the Ministry of Education, intro-
duced rugby to government schools, giving
the union an enthusiastic group of young
Bahamian players.
"Stephen is the backbone of this game,"
said "BJ" of the union's secretary. "He
goes to all the meetings, makes all the
trips, still plays and is the reason that rug-
by in the Bahamas has been stepped up to
its present level."
In November the Bahamas team will
play Barbados. If successful in this final
qualifying round it will represent the
Caribbean at the World Cup, taking the
US and Canada on as its first opponents.
Mr Saunders is also pleased that the
union's present board and Town Planning
have approved the Sports and Educa-
tional complex. The new board's task is
now to raise enough public funds to build
the complex.
Mr Saunders' only disappointment is
that the Ministry of Youth's removal and
non-return of the club's bleachers has
interfered with the club's summer youth
programme. There was nowhere for the


young people to sit, he explained.
The players have great dreams for the
future. When completed their complex
and sports fields will be a family centre -
a place for young people to meet after
school to do their homework, tutored by
players who will donate their time to help
them before their games. Among club
members and players are lawyers, doc-
tors, teachers and businessmen.
The centre has been established to ful-
fil four primary goals to make a con-
tribution to combating youth delinquency
in New Providence; to provide first class
sporting and educational opportunities to
young Bahamian athletes; to create the
premier sporting and recreational facility
in The Bahamas and to raise the status of
Rugby in New Providence.
When completed the clubhouse and
academic block will provide playing sur-
faces for rugby, soccer, basketball, volley-
ball and baseball; a walking/jogging track
and a gymnasium.
It also will provide all members of The
New Providence Sports and Educational
Centre with a club environment in which
they have a vested interest.
According to its mission statement the
club will be the focal point for recreation
and companionship for all members, from
the very youngest to the club elders and
will give every player the opportunity to
develop his or her skills to the highest
level of the individual's ability.
It will provide a level of competition
commensurate with each participant's
ability, interest and desire and a healthy,
safe and enjoyable environment for all
participants.
As it extends a hand of friendship to
the community its aim is "to foster hon-
esty, integrity and goodwill within the
community" in addition to providing edu-
cational opportunities to all players,
coaches, volunteers and the general com-
munity.
We hope that when the time comes to
donate to this worthy cause the public
will be generous.


EDITOR, The Tribune
I wanted to express my con-
cern over something that was
said to me by the parliamentary
secretary at the Office of the
Prime Minister in Grand
Bahama, Ann E Percentie MP.
I called the office of the
Prime Minister on the morning
of August 17, because I wanted
to speak with my MP, Mr Ken-
neth Russell.
Having never attempted to
contact my MP before, I thought
that the Office of The Prime
Minister was a logical place to
start. When I called the Office of
The Prime Minister and asked
for contact information for High
Rock MP Kenneth Russell, I
was transferred to the parlia-
mentary secretary. She informed
me in a tone holding definite
political prejudice that Mr Rus-
sell does not work for the gov-
ernment of the Bahamas!
She furthered her statement
by telling me that the govern-
ment of The Bahamas is PLP,
not FNM, and that if I wanted
to reach a member of the offi-


EDITOR, The Tribune
I WISH to pen a thought on
the position taken by Mr Brent
Symonette, (FNM member of
parliament for Montagu), not
to contest for the leadership of
the Free National Movement
during the upcoming leadership
convention.
Many have endeavoured to
create one Bahamas since 1973
and many times it seemed that
strides were gained, but today's
revelations indicate clearly that
all that was done all along was
simply whistling in the dark.
The fact that there was never
serious participation by the


cial Opposition, I should try
contacting the FNM headquar-
ters not the Office of The Prime
Minister. I asked her how is this
possible, and she repeated her-
self only louder, stating that Mr
Russell does not work for this
government!
How can it be possible that
the parliamentary secretary
does not recognise the MP for
High Rock as being an employ-
ee of the Bahamas government?
I did not ask for the member of
the FNM party, Mr Kenneth
Russell. I asked for contact
information for my MP, Mr
Kenneth Russell.
It is my understanding that
the basis job description for the
parliamentary secretary is that
she represents the Prime Min-
ister when he is absent from his
office here in Grand Bahama.
The job description also
includes, but is in no way limit-


whites in any strata of the new
Bahamas should be of very seri-
ous concern to all blacks and
whites!
Brent Symonette is the visible
token of the minority white, in
this country. His dropping out
before national convention is
the clear indication that the
whites have relegated them-
selves to simply voting for the
minority party and supporting
them with money.
This is no good and begs the
serious question of how much
longer can the whites be
depended upon for these most
vital functions?
Can one expect the whites


ed to, holding contact informa-
tion for all of the members of
parliament to have available
when asked for by any citizen of
the Bahamas.
You would expect whichev-
er political party is in control
of the government to represent
the people, and that their job is
done in a mature and responsi-
ble manner not to display
what appeared to me to be a
childish and prejudiced front to
the public towards anyone in
government who is not of their
party.
As a Bahamian citizen,,I have
never been more ashamed of a
member of our government.
Personally, I do not care which
political party has the control-
ling share, as long as they do
what is in the best interests of
our country and of our people.
It is my opinion that the type
of attitude displayed by the par-
liamentary secretary is not in
the best interests of our nation.

that were born past 1973 to con-
tinue in this fashion? I say no,
hell no, and suggest that the
whites vote for the majority par-
ty last time and hence the FNM
for only one year.
This is a sad state of affairs;
Bahamaland is not one and it
does not seem to be getting
closer.
Instead of trying to reduce oil
prices, it would be better if we
concentrated on being all that
we can be, whatever it is, in our
country.

Final call for FNM leadership contest?


EDITOR, The Tribune
I WAS very happy that Brent
Symonette chose not to offer
for the leadership of the FNM,
which shows a great deal of
maturity on his part.
To my mind, the field is now
clear. Tommy Turnquest is the
current leader and Dion


Foulkes has been the only one
who has announced boldly
that he will contest the lead-
ership.
As far as I am concerned, that
makes up my mind for me. This
is August and the FNM con-
vention is in November, and
those who have not yet made
up their minds I will not take


seriously if they enter the race
at the last moment.
They all remind me of Perry
Christie and his indecisiveness,
and that is what we are trying to
get away from.

a girl in her face.
The 22-year-old
boyfriend and his 24-year-

THE escalating cost of fuel should not affect tick-

try manager told The Tribune yesterday.
Ricky Deane, the newly appointed Bahamas man-
ager for American Eagle, said the airline will look at
internal measures to creatively decrease the cost of
operations rather than place the burden of rising
gas prices on passengers.
The airline industry has been forced to endure

Setback in



BEWU talks


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
AFTER a day of negations, the
Bahamas Electrical Workers
Union and executive manage-
ment have failed to resolve any of
their outstanding issues.
Speaking with The Tribune yes-
terday, BEWU's secretary gen-
eral Stephano Greene said
Wednesday's meeting did not go
as well as the union had hoped.
He said that none of the matters
discussed were resolved.
Last week, the union said yes-
terday's meeting would aim to
address the most critical aspects
of the dispute.
Despite the setback, Mr
Greene said another meeting is
scheduled for tomorrow. He said
the union remains hopeful that a
resolution would be reached.
Both of BEC's unions, the
BEWU and the Bahamas Elec-
trical Utilities Management
(BEUMU) have been embroiled
in contract negotiations and the
threat of a possible strike has
loomed since BEWU union pres-
ident Dennis Williams announced
last week that BEC had until
August 30 to resolve a
number of issues regarding its
employees.


Mr Williams said that if the
issues were not resolved, the
union would be forced to take
"the most aggressive form of
industrial action ever seen."
On Sunday, BEUMU presi-
dent Ronnie Stevenson added
his voice to the call, saying that
Labour Minister Vincent Peet
needs to address the workers'
concerns expeditiously so as to
"avoid any possible industrial
reaction which will affect the
quality of service currently being
enjoyed by all of us during these
hot summer months."
Both union heads have said
they are hopeful that they will
not have to make good on those
threats and have asked consumers
to be understanding.
They have described present
relations between the unions and
executive management as the
worst in BEC's history.
Executive managers have
denied that they hold any ill will
toward the unions.

Water 'still a problem'


* By KARAN MINNIS

RUSTY water continues to be a
problem for at least one resident
of New Providence.
Joyce Higgs, who lives in
Camperdown Heights, told The
Tribune yesterday that the run-
ning 'ater in her home has sud-
denly become so rusty that she
may hWave to evacuate the premis-
es
"Since Thursday the water in
our area has become so bad that
we can not clean our homes, bath
or do anything of that sort. Basi-
cally the only thing we can do with
that water is flush the toilets, which


are now stained," she said.
According to Mrs Higgs, the
Water and Sewage Corporation
began changing the pipes in the
area about two months ago.
She said that when the project
began, the corporation assured res-
idents that once the work is com-
plete, their homes would be sup-
plied with water through new
pipes.
Mrs Higgs said that her neigh-
bors are also having the same
problems.
This is the second complaint in
recent months about the problem
of rusty water to be reported by
The Tribune.


In July, a family in Winton
Meadows, just a few blocks away
from the Camperdown area, also
complained about the rust in their
water.
One family member had said
that the water had become very
pungent, "almost to the point that
you cannot bear to wash your
body with it or brush your teeth."
Mrs Higgs, who also suffers
from a medical condition, said that
the "lack of useable water" is
affecting her health.
"I am supposed to take a bath
rather than shower because of my
lung condition and I can't because
of the water," she said. "There are


stains in my master bath from the
rust, and I'm afraid to even wash
my clothing or anything. It has got-
ten so bad that I may have to evac-
uate my house."
She added: "I've called and
called the corporation but I have
gotten no response. I would really
like to know what is going on and.
when it will be resolved because
this is greatly affecting my life."
Speaking to the press yesterday,
Godfrey Sherman, general man-
ager of the Water and Sewage
Corporation, said that the compa-
ny is currently investigating the
situation and plans to have it
resolved shortly.


Man admits hiding

sub-machine gun


FREEPORT An 18-year-old High Rock man who
was arrested on Sunday for possessing an unlicensed
sub-machine gun was arraigned in Freeport Magis-
trate's Court yesterday.
Javaughn Munnings pleaded guilty before Magis-
trate Subu Swain Lasalle to possessing an unlicensed
firearm.
At 9am on Sunday, a team of Eastern Division offi-
cers executed a search warrant at his home and sub-
sequently discovered a hidden MAC 10 sub-machine
gun.
Munnings told the court that he found the weapon
on the beach at High Rock some time ago but was
afraid to turn it in to the police so he kept the weapon
and hid it.
Magistrate Lassalle granted him a discharge on the
condition that he keep the peace for a period of five
years. If he fails to do so, he will serve three years in
prison.
The court ordered that the weapon be confiscated.

Group to host conference


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
The Zonta Club of Nassau,
an institution which for decades
has campaigned for women's
rights and the advancement of


women and children, has been
given the prestigious honour of
hosting Zonta's International
Conference for 2005.
This achievement marks only
the second time that the inter-
national conference is being


held outside the United States.
From September 22 to 25,
hundreds of business women
and advocates from around the
region will meet in New Provi-
dence engage in roundtable dis-
cussions and social events.


Focusing on achieving
progress for women every-
where, the Zonta members will
thrash out ideas for global
advancement, in keeping with
the goals of international
efforts, such as those of
UNICEF.

Issues

Conference chairperson Dr
Mildred Hall Watson told The
Tribune that the issues facing
women in the Bahamas are, in
many ways, similar to those fac-
ing women around the world.
Those issues include abuse,
health concerns, and the need
for professional, economic and
cultural advancement.
At last year's conference, the
focus was on women involved
human trafficking rings.
Dr Hall Watson said this
issue is now becoming a reali-
ty even in the Bahamas, as can
be seen by looking at the ever-
growing immigrant popula-
tion.


In New Providence, the main
contributions of the two Zonta
Clubs have been towards the
AIDS foundation, PACE, a
school for pregnant schoolgirls,
and Living Legends a pro-
gramme which honours the
achievements of outstanding
Bahamians.
Patricia Francis, the area
director for Zonta, also made
history by being only the sec-
ond director to be chosen out-
side of the US.
Zonta began in 1919, and
today, boasts of 36,000 women
members in the southern part
of the US, South America, and
the Caribbean region.
"It's not a small achievement
for us," said Ms Francis. "The
clubs here in Nassau will make
sure that this conference will
blow them (visiting delegates)
away."
The conference will be held
at the Atlantis resort and will
include a variety of events,
among them a courtesy call on
Governor General Dame Ivy
Dumont.

A MAN accused of endan-
gering the life of another per-
son in Freeport was arraigned
in court on Tuesday.
Zeno Higgs, of Garden
Villas and Grand Cay, Aba-
co,.was arraigned before
Magistrate Franklyn Williams
on Tuesday on three separate
charges.
He was charged with pos-
session of an unlicensed .38
revolver, possession of 25.38
bullets without a valid
firearms certificate, and pos-
session of a firearm with
intent to endanger the life of
Trevor Laing.
It was alleged that last
week Saturday, Higgs shot
Trevor Laing in the buttock
while Laing was sitting on a
derelict vehicle near the junc-
tion of East Atlantic Drive
and Bruce Avenue in
Freeport.
Higgs pleaded not guilty to
all charges and was remanded
to Fox Hill Prison until a pre-
liminary inquiry into the mat-
ter, which will be held on
December 13 at 10 am.
Laing has since been dis-
charged from the hospital.
Police now have in cus-
tody both men wanted for
questioning in connection
with a number of fraud
offences allegedly committed
at various Freeport business-
es.
Donovan Adderley, 23, of
Beachway Drive, was arrest-
edar.ound-1.4Opm-onr -Mn-
day, while J'Shantae Jones,
22, of the same address, was
taken into custody on Tues-
day morning.
It was reported that the
commercial crime section of
the Central Detective Unit in
Freeport has charged both
with five counts of commer-
cial fraud based on false pre-
tenses.
Both pleaded not guilty
and were granted bail with
one surety. Their cases were
adjourned until February
2006.

also unanimous with a guilty
verdict on the charge of bur-
glary as well as attempted
armed robbery. The ruling was
later overturned in the Court
of Appeal and a retrial was
ordered.
Late yesterday afternoon a
new jury, consisting of 10
women and two men, unani-
mously found Brown guilty of
murder. They were also unani-
mous on the charge of burglary
and attempted armed robbery.
Before returning the verdict,
however, the jury had ques-
tioned the difference between
murder and manslaughter. Jus-
tice Jon Isaacs explained that
murder differed from
manslaughter in that murder is
committed with intent.
Justice Isaacs told Brown that
because he was found guilty of
murder he would be sentenced
to death by means authorised
by law. For the charge of bur-
glary Brown will receive an 18-
year prison sentence and a 15-
year sentence for attempted
armed robbery. These sen-
tences are to run concurrently.
Brown was represented by
lawyer Dorsey McPhee. Neil
Brathwaite prosecuted the case.
On May 29, 2000 Archdea-
con Thompson was shot in the
chest and stomach by a masked
gunman during an attempted
armed robbery of his home, St
Agnes' rectory on Market
Street.
The well known Anglican
.priest, who had served for many
years as rector of St Agnes
Church, remained in a coma,
finally dying of his injuries in
hospital almost four weeks lat-
er on June 23,2.000.

ON TUESDAY
gone, a young lady
called into The Darold Miller
Show and politely congratu-
lated all the students who got
C or better in their BGCSE
results.
She then told Mr Miller
that she was only allowed by
her teacher to take one of
four papers in typing, which,
in her words, "required only
a D grade". She suggested to
Mr Miller that he should con-
gratulate such student, too.
The host made a little
effort to understand what she
-was saying, then concluded
that he didn't understand
what she was saying and
finally told the girl: "I ain'
congratulating no D." He
then asked sincerely: "Was I
wrong for that?" In part, Mr
Miller was wrong.
Mr Miller's conversation
with his young caller reveals
one of the most critical ele-
ments of the BGCSE grad-
ing dilemma, which is a lack
of understanding of how the
exam is administered and
what the grades mean.
Far too many people who
should understand this sim-
ply do not understand it. As a
veteran talk show host who
has interviewed ministers of
education and senior officers
in education on numerous
occasions and had them
explain the BGCSE grading
scheme to him, one would
have expected Mr Miller to
understand what. his young

caller was saying. But he,
according to him, did not.
If Mr Miller does not
understand it, having had
many explanations given to
him, why should any average
citizen understand it, some
of whom are employers who,
like Mr Miller, only want to
see students with grades of

that, under the BGCSE sys-
tem, many exams have a
number of papers that stu-
dents can take separately. In
fact, teachers examine a stu-
dent's performance over time
and recommend that the stu-
dent takes an exam based on
their demonstrated abilities.
For example, if a student

C and above?
This is not a matter of
whether a D grade is good or
not, it is understanding how
the grade was obtained and
what it means under the
BGCSE system.
What Mr Miller's caller
was trying to say to him was


is believed to have acquired
great proficiency in typing,

that she takes all the papers,
which means she will be able
to achieve as high as an A

she got the top grade she


could get for passing that
paper, she was saying that
she should have been con-
gratulated on that basis, and
she was right.

Another point here
A is that the D grade
under the BGCSE does not
mean the same thing as it
meant under the GCE where
on a scale from A to E, the D
represented a mere pass.
Under the GCE one was
tested essentially in one's
ability to recall information,
not critical thinking skills or
intellectual ability. I took ten
GCEs, most in the sciences,
and got mostly As and Bs. I
can tell you that much of the
exam was recall.
A D grade in the GCE
meant that a person could
only recall a certain amount
of information, perhaps
between 50 per cent and 60
per cent, necessary to pass
the exam. It may have hinted
at your ability in a subject
area but did not clearly point
to it.
Under the BGCSE, the
whole idea behind a grade is
for it to describe the ability a
student has. A "D" grade in
English Language for
instance might describe that a
student knew basic grammar,
comprehension and reading.
An "A" grade might mean
that a student understood
more advanced English func-

* ROOTS springs into action with Kerzner donation. Ed Fields, Kerzner International's vice pres-

Donation springs



Roots into action


KJerzner International donat-
ed $25,000 to the Roots
Junkanoo group on Tuesday to
assist with preparations for the
world-famous Boxing Day and
New Years Day Junkanoo
Parades.
This year's donation, like oth-
ers made in previous years, will
significantly assist the Junkanoo
group, which promises to wow
enthusiasts who each year flock
to the downtown area to enjoy
this colourful and lively display
of dance and music.
Kerzner International's vice-
president of retail services and
public affairs, Ed Fields, pre-
sented the cheque to Mark Bas-
tian, Roots treasurer and Kish-
lane O'Brien, Roots secretary.
"Junkanoo is our most impor-
tant cultural expression and


Kerzner International is more
than pleased each year to. not
only join in the celebrations but
assist the Roots Junkanoo
group in their involvement in
the two parades," said Mr
Fields: "We are certain that the
funds will go a long way in
assisting the group in defraying
the various costs associated with
participating in this major cul-
tural event."

Outreach

Some of the funds will be
used to assist with the group's
youth outreach programmes.
"We are a family-oriented
group, and what we try to do is
hold a back-to-school jam-
boree and Junkanoo rush out


for our school children.
"Also for the adolescents, we
hold a book drive and so in
addition to the proceeds getting
us to Bay Street, it is also a
mechanism of us trying to make
sure that we interact with our
group members and help them
on an educational level," Mr
O'Brien said.
Mr Bastian said it is always a
pleasure for the group to
receive donations from Kerzner
International, which is its largest
outside sponsor. The group gets
a significant share of its funds
from prize money won after
competing in the various
parades, and is well on its way
in producing the costumes that
it needs to go to Bay Street f6r
the Boxing Day and the New
Years Day parades.

Chief of Mission at the US Embassy in Nassau,
will be sworn in as Ambassador to Ghana on
September 7 at the State Department in Wash-

Mrs Bridgewater, who during her tenure as US
Counsel General in Durban, South Africa was
the political officer assigned to cover Nelson
Mandela in the period of historic negotiations
leading up to the end of apartheid, has had an
interesting life's journey.
Her education led her from Walker-Grant
High School in Fredricksburg, Virginia, to Vir-
ginia State University in
Petersburg, to countries all over the world; She
entered the teaching profession and taught at
the Morgan State University and Bowie State
University in Maryland, as well the Voorhees

Fishermen's triumph


N PHIL LeBoutillier with Miss Billfish and the prize marlin


THE Bahamas reeled in a big
prize when a team of local fish-
ermen won the Hawaiian Fish-
ing Billfish Tournament (HIBI)
earlier this month.
The tournament is known as
the "Grandfather of all Big
Game Fishing Tournaments"
and the Bahamas team beat out
a field of 25 teams from all over
the world to win the prize.
This was the county's debut
in the event.
The 25th Hawaiian Interna-
tional Billfish Tournament was
held over five days.
Fishing started at 7 am and
went on to 4 pm each day in
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
Fish were weighed in daily
and all fish that weighed in
under 300 pounds were tagged
and released into the ocean.
The winning catch for the
Bahamas angling team Phil
"Boot" LeBoutillier (team cap-
tain) of Hope Town and Jeff
Waugh of Nassau was a 562
and half pound marlin.
This fish was worth a whop-
ping 950 points with a bonus
for the largest fish of the day.
When asked what it was like
catching such a big fish, Mr
Waugh told a Hawaiian news-
paper, "After almost two hours
my arms were dead,".
In addition to the marlin,
team Bahamas also earned
points for catching several 150
and 160 pounders which were
tagged and released.
After five days of fishing,
team Bahamas came from
behind to win the tournament
with an impressive 2,150 points.
Second place went to the

mi, Florida hundreds of
Bahamian-Americans and local

Uncertainty in




Bahamasair




privatisation


* By YOLANDA
DELEVEAUX
Senior Business Reporter
THE Government's goal of
privatising Bahamasair by sum-
mer's-end 2005 is unlikely to be
achieved, with the airline's
Board still awaiting the report
from management consultants
McKinsey & Co amid claims
that a decision has been taken
to defer the process until
December.
Basil Sands, Bahamasair'
chairman, yesterday declined to
comment on the status of the
privatisation effort, saying only
that McKinsey and Co, retained
for $1 million, had not submit-
ted its report to the privatisa-
tion committee. It is expected to
do so shortly.
Meanwhile, Bahamasair
union executives continue to
point to their exclusion from
the privatisation process,
despite the national flag carrier
seeking $4.1 million in staff pay
cuts to help bridge a $10 mil-
lion budget shortfall
Nelerene Harding, president
of the Airport, Airline and
Allied Workers Union


McKinsey & Co report

expected shortly


(AAAWU), yesterday said the
union was unaware of whatwas
happening. It was maintaining
its position that the airline's
management and the Govern-
ment were trying to place the
burden of privatising the airline
on them.

Compromise

Bradley Roberts, minister of
works and public utilities, has
said publicly that unions at all
US-based legacy carriers have
had to make significant com-
promises to maintain their jobs
and keep their airlines aflaot, a
position that Ms Harding refut-
ed.
She said: "For a long time
they've been playing that game,
trying to say that you have to
give up something to get pri-


vatisation. We don't see the rea-
son why you're paying $1 mil-
lion for a consultant if you are
asking us to give up $4 million."
Ms Harding said the last com-
munication she received from
the airline's Board was on
August 7, through a letter ask-
ing if union officials wanted to
meet privately with McKinsey
and Co regarding any questions
or queries they might have.
On August 9, Ms Harding
declined the invitation in a let-
ter to Bahamasair's Board, say-
ing that a meeting was not
needed because the last two
with McKinsey & Co were
futile.
Since this correspondence,
Ms Harding said union officials
had not heard from the Board
or the airline's management

Proposed NIB reform


may hurt hotel sector


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE Social Security Reform
Commission has recommended
that the Government "seek" to
make hotels pay National Insur-
ance Board (NIB) contributions
based on the gratuities earned
by 'tipped' employees, in addi-
tion to base pay, a move that


many properties are likely to
resist.
The Commission's report to
the Government on what the
Bahamas must do to reform the
NIB and its social security sys-
tem is now being printed, but
among the preliminary recom-
mendations it has made are that
the definition of 'insurable
wages' for service sector work-


ers be expanded to include tips
and gratuities.
The initial findings noted that
'tipped' employees, such as
waiters, croupiers and bus girls
and boys, "often take home
wages well in excess of basic
pay but receive NIB benefits
based only on their basic wage".

Freeport developer

loses verdict appeal


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
A FREEPORT condomini-
um developer has lost its appeal
that attempted to overturn the
election of a Board of Direc-
tors for the complex it devel-
oped, with the Court of Appeal
agreeing that he was the "only
person certainly in arrears" on
maintenance fee payments.
The court rejected the appeal
by Cannes Resort (Freeport),
the developer of an 18-unit con-
dominium complex on 2.525
acres at Silver Cove in Freeport,
that a meeting convened to


elect a Board of Directors from
among the unit owilers was not
properly held.
Michael Rubin, the beneficial
owner of Cannes Resort
(Freeport), who was described
as the company's "mind and
management" and with his wife
owned six of the 18 units,
appealed on the grounds that
the Board's members were "not
duly elected to such offices" and
could riot therefore hold office
and exercise the relevant duties.
The Court of Appeal judge-
ment recorded that the dispute

Fund services drive

three-fold increase

in Butterfield profits


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
BANK of Butterfield's
Bahamas operations generated
a more than three-fold increase
in net income to $0.408 million
during the 2005 second quarter,
driven largely by a rise in rev-
enues from fund administration.
The Bermuda-headquartered
bank revealed that its Bahami-
an operations, Butterfield Bank
(Bahamas) and Butterfield
Fund Services (Bahamas), gen-
erated the rise in net income,
which was just $0.141 million in
the 2004 comparative period,


from revenues of $1.615 million
in the three months to June 30.
Revenues had increased by
almost 10 per cent upon the
2004 second quarter, which pro-
duced $1.469 million.
Bank of Butterfield said in its
results announcement: "The
Bahamian businesses achieved
net income of $0.4 million on
total revenues of $1.6 million;
up from $0.1 million and $1.5
million a year ago, reflecting
growth in revenues from fund
administration services.
"Total assets have increased

Rising investor confidence




boosts BISX trading volumes


* By YOLANDA DELEVEAUX
Senior Business Reporter
A STEADY rise in trading volumes on
the Bahamas International Securities
Exchange (BISX) over the past few weeks
has been generated by the positive results
produced by many listed companies, an
analyst said yesterday, with investor confi-
dence, buoyed by the continued strength
of the Bahamian economy.
Jim Graham, vice-president of Fidelity
Capital Markets, said: "People are very
buoyant on the market. There are still bar-
gains out there, and investors are picking
them up.
"As a result, the prices are slowly creep-
ing up to where they should be. Look at
Bank of the Bahamas. Their strong results
continue, so they are paying the same divi-
dend as they paid last year and their stock is
up $0.85 cents per share. Investors are
rewarding companies by buying into them."
Other listings that have produced
improved financials, sparking a a subse-
quent increase in their stock price, are the
Bahamas Property Fund, up $1.25 over its
52-week low; Cable Bahamas, which saw
good profits during its last reporting period


and its BISX price rise by $1.70.
Commonwealth Bank also saw an
improvement by $1.70; with FirstCaribbean
International Bank experiencing good
results for the year ansd seeing its share
price rise by $1.80.
Mr Graham credited a number of fac-
tors for the increased volume of trading.
Results for various companies that have
reported recently have been positive, and
investor confidence in the Bahamas is good
because the economy continues to improve.
The ability of events in the US to influ-
ence the Bahamian economy could prove to
be a negative, however, with the rising cost
of oil potentially having a damaging effect
on the wider US economy, resulting in a
substantial change in the vacation and trav-
el habits of Americans because they have
less money to spend. This, if it happened,
would mean the Bahamas could experi-
ence a downturn in its own economy.
There are still some BISX-listed compa-
nies that continue to struggle, such as Aba-
co Markets and Freeport Concrete, both
impacted by the ongoing economic prob-
lames in Grand Bahama since the Septem-
ber 2004 hurricanes. Kerzner International
has been down for the year, but the long


range forecast for the stock remained excel-
lent.
Mr Graham said the market was doing
well for stocks that are showing positive
results. He said the key was not how the
stock has performed in the past, but what
investors perceive its will do in the future,
with most investors believing that profits
will grow in 2005, based on current trends.
"It's a situation where investors should
keep close watch on the US economy to see
the impact of oil on their economy. If it gets
sluggish or retracts, it could impact profits of
local companies," Mr Graham said.
ICD Utilities was said to still be recover-
ing from hurricane-related expenses and
the continuing closure of the Royal Oasis.
Investment projects coming to fruition,
including the Marriott or Ginn projects,
would help the company's position.
Abaco Markets had also been severely
impacted by hurricane-related expenses,
and even Cable Bahamas saw a moderate
downturn in sales as a 'result of damaged
sustained during the hurricanes.
Many companies that have a large
Freeport presence have seen their shares
and results suffer most, in large part due to
things beyond their control.

Former legal affairs




head joins Baha Mar


Baha Mar Development
Company yesterday named the
former director of legal affairs
in the Attorney General's
Office as its vice-president for
legal affairs.


Rhonda Bain, who took the
post with effect from August 3,
will report directly to Baha
Mar's vice-chairman and gen-
eral counsel, John Forelle.
She will oversee the compa-


ny's day-to-day legal matters
and provide general business
advice on corporate compliance
and governance matters, acqui-
sitions and negotiations.
"As this project develops, it is
paramount that we have
respected attorneys in-house to
handle the complex issues that
we expect to encounter," said
Mr Forelle.
"We are pleased to welcome
Rhonda to the legal depart-
ment. She has had a distin-
guished career, serving both in
the most senior government
legal position and in private
practice. This is a rare distinc-
tion, and makes her counsel


an invaluable asset to Baha
Mar."
Prior to joining Baha Mar,
which acquired the three resorts
on the Cable Beach strip prior
to undertaking a $1.2 billion
development, Ms Bain was an
attorney in private practice at
the offices of Bain Gomez &
Company.
She had previously spent 16
years in the public service the
last five as Director of Legal
Affairs in the Office of the
Attorney General. She spent
much of her early private prac-
tice career in the offices of
Christie Ingraham & Company
as an associate.

NIB danger


FROM page one
For workers who received
gratuities and commissions from
their employers, the Commis-
sion recommended that these
be included in insurable wages,
upon which employer and
employee NIB contributions are
based, and for workers who
received customer tips, these
should be 'phased in gradual-
ly'.
However, the recommenda-
tion likely to cause most con-
troversy relates to the hotel
industry, particularly when the
current industrial agreement
between the Bahamas Hotel
Employers Association
(BHEA) and Bahamas Hotel,
Catering and Allied Workers
Union (BHCAWU) expires in
2008-2009.
The recommendation, printed
on the NIB's website, says: "At
the end of the current five-year
industrial agreement with
hotels, seek to have employers
pay their share of contributions
on gratuities."
One observer, who has con-
ducted economic analyses of the
hotel industry, said any move
in the direction suggested by
the Commission would effec-
tively act as an extra tax on the
sector, and provide a disincen-
tive to further investment by
existing owners and operators,
plus new developers.


The source said: "They're not
going to agree to that. Once the
BHA sees that, they're not
going to agree."
Net profit margins on many,
Bahamian hotel industry assets
were already slim and uncom-
petitive with destinations such
as Mexico and the Dominican
Republic, the source pointed
out, with properties such as the.
Royal Oasis in Grand Bahama
and South Ocean resort in New
Providence already closed due
to financial difficulties.
Gratuities and tips were not a
fixed cost, making it difficult to
pay consistent amounts to the
NIB, The Tribune was told, and
"forcing" hotel employers to
pay on these was another form
of taxation at a time when they
were already impacted by high
operating-costs,-such-as elec-'
tricity, food and labour.
"It's a burden," the source
said. "Increased investment in
room capacity they will not do,
as they will not get the required
return on their money. The
Commission is wrong in that
regard."
The Commission was seeking
to reduce the NIB burden by
imposing it on the hotel sector,
although the source acknowl-
edged that it was understood
what it was trying to do, in terms
of making NIB benefits more
equitable with tipped employ-
ees' take home pay.

THE TRIBUNE











Developer fails to overturn election



Developer fails to overturn election


FROM page one
between Cannes Resort
(Freeport) and the four respon-
dents unit owners in the com-
plex who were elected to its
Board of Directors began
when some of them expressed
concern "about the manner" in
which the condominiums were
being managed by Mr Rubin.
The judgement recorded that
"all the business, duties and
responsibilities with respect to
the condominium complex"
were either carried out by Mr
Rubin or came under his con-
trol, and "it appears that the
unit owners had no input what-
ever in these matters".
As a result, a letter was sent
to all unit owners on Decem-
ber 3,2002, saying-that a-meet- _
ing of "all the unit owners in
good standing" was being held
to settle any questions and
decide the future running of
Cannes Village.
The letter, the judgement
said, also intended to elect a
vice-president and treasurer
who would be the "second" to
Mr Rubin on all decisions relat-
ing to how Cannes Village was
run.
The meeting was held on
February 1, 2003, and attended,
by 17 of the 18 unit owners,
including Mr Rubin. Wendy
Gaudet, listed as the first
respondent in the appeal, was
elected chairman, and three
pther respondents Bob Gross-
man, Teno Jackson and Keith
Lim chosen as directors. -
Maurice Glinton, represent-
ing Cannes Resort (Freeport)
and Mr Rubin, said that while
four grounds were filed in the
Notice of Appeal, he would
.only rely on the question of
.whether the meeting was prop-
erly held.
The judgement recorded:
"The short point in this appeal,
.Mr Glinton submitted, is
whether there must be proof
that those members present at
the meeting have paid all their
contributions before they are
.entitled to vote, and there was
no such proof, so that the meet-
ing was unlawfully held, and all
i ecisiops taken at tihe. meting
,and the unplementing of those
decisions are anullity.",


The Court of Appeal found
that despite the Declaration for
Cannes Resort (Freeport),
lodged with the Registry of
Records under the Law of
Property and Conveyancing,
allowing all unit owners to be
members of a body corporate
responsible for the complex's
running, "the unit owners wee
never afforded the opportuni-
ty of doing so".
The judgement said Ms
Gaudet's affidavit "catalogued a
series of breaches and
defaults... in the operation of
the property", which contra-
vened the law.
These included, according to
the judgement, a failure to
secure full value insurance cov-
erage on Cannes Village; a "fail-
-.ure and/or refusal" by Mr
Rubin to render annual audited
accounts for 1998-2002; Mr
Rubin "exempting himself from
the obligation to pay mainte-
nance fees" for his six units; the


failure to call an annual general
meeting from 1995 to 2002; and
the appellants "repeatedly
asserting a right to control"
appointments to the Board.
The Court of Appeal said:
"The respondents submitted
that at the meeting it was
impossible to determine before-
hand if any unit owner was in
arrears in respect of his financial
contributions due to the failure
of the appellants to render
annual audited accounts since
1997.
"The only person who cer-
tainly was in arrears was [Mr
Rubin]. We agree with that sub-
mission.
"It was in these circumstances
that a resolution was passed at
the meeting that all unit owners,
including the second appellant,
who were in arrears should be
allowed to vote. One of the res-'
olutions passed was that the
new Board was to reconcile
each unit owner's account by


June 30, 2003."
Mr Glinton then argued that
the meeting was unlawful
because no one had announced
the financial position of each
Cannes Village member, and
whether they had a right to
vote, before the meeting.
The Court of Appeal did not
buy that argument, finding that'
the only one who could have
provided such information was
Mr Rubin. It added that a July
31, 1995, letter from Mr Rubin


to all unit owners requested
payments of all assessments and
maintenance fees, and added
that he would not pay insurance
on his units or maintenance fees
because he was the builder.
The Court of Appeal also
recorded that Mr Rubin wrote
in on July 10, 2002, that he had
completed a "full accounting"
of the Cannes Village books,
again showing he was the only
one with information on the
financial standing of each owner.


The court found: "He did not
raise any objection to the right
of any unit owner present at the
meeting to vote. In fact, he was
the first to be disqualified from
voting for he himself was in
arrears and he knew that."
The Court of Appeal backed
the Supreme Court's verdict
that the meeting was held and
the respondents were allowed
to form a Board of Directors.
Harvey Tynes represented
the respondents.

Taureano


sidelined


with injury

U By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
A FRACTURED wrist
and thumb will sideline
amateur boxer Taureano
Johnson for two weeks.
This will be a painful two
weeks for Johnson, who has
gotten used to training
and hitting the bags every-
day.
Turning to jogging at least
two or three miles a day is
the only work-out Johnson
said he has been doing, but,
he said, his body has been
missing the hard work-out
he is used to.
Johnson fractured his
thumb at the recently held
Commonwealth Boxing
Championships (CBC) in
Glasgow, Scotland.
The injury came in the
first round of the semi-final
bout against a boxer from
India.
The left jab delivered by
Johnson to his opponent
landed wrong, with the
inner part of his glove
absorbing most of the blow.
Not noticing that his left
thumb had received injury,
Johnson continued to fight
on, until the sound of the
bell.
Returning to his corner
for a check-up, Johnson
complained about the pain
to his thumb, which was
examined by the team's doc-
tor.

Continue
Signalling to head coach
and the doctor that he was
alright and wanted to con-
tinue on with the fight,
Johnson said he stepped
back to the ring ready for
battle.
"It was my decision, after
I told them about the pain,
to step back into the ring,"
said Johnson. "I wanted to
go all out."
"I was confident that I
would be able' to defeat the
boxer. Yes, I was in pain
with the thumb, but that
didn't drop my confidence
level. I wanted to continue
on.
"I knew that I was
stronger than him, but he
had a lot of help in his cor-
ner, because the same coach
that assists me with my
training in Cuba, was coach-
ing him.
"The coach new my ins
and outs, so it was like I was
fighting against two per-
sons."
But as Johnson continued to
fight on through the rounds
the injured thumb turned
into a fracture.
Delivering blow after
blow with the left hand,
Johnson fractured his wrist.
Realising that the pain
had extended into the wrist
area, Johnson returned to
his corner, but refused to
throw in the towel.
"They kept asking me
after they saw the extent of
the injury, but I told them
no, let me fight on," John-
son said.
"I wanted to keep going
at him. Every bone in my
body wanted to continue on.

Explained
"They explained all that
could have happened to me
if I continued on with the
fight, but realising that this
fight would have been the
last fight of the tournament,
I told them that I would
move on.
"Before heading back, the
doctor looked at me and
said, 'this would definitely
be the last fight for you, win,
lose or draw'."
"He was like 'after this
one, Taureano, we are pack-
ing it up'. I didn't mind that,
at least I would have been
able to bring a medal
home."
The ambidextrous boxer
said he realised that the
chances of him using his left
hand would have been high,
but noted that his right hand


was stronger.
Fighting through excruci-
ating pain, Johnson summed
up his fight result as a part
of the tournament he will
always remember and be
proud of.
Johnson lost the four
round bout by a point.
When he returned home
from the CBC, he said he
headed straight to the doc-
tors office.
Currently Johnson has his
left hand in a cast which
extends to the forearm.
Johnson went back to the
doctor yesterday for a
check-up, which should
reveal the healing process of
the hand.


Tonique will bounce





back against Richards


N THE aftermath of the
10th IAAF World Cham-
pionships in Helsinki, Finland,
quarter-miler Tonique
Williams-Darling is starting to
feel the effects of her perfor-
mance.
For the second time in three
days, she was beaten by Amer-
ican Sanya Richards, who got
revenge for her defeat to
Williams-Darling in Helsinki by
lowering her world leading
time.
Richards, 20, dipped under
the 49-second barrier for the
first time, leading Williams-Dar-
ling, 29, still battling to stay con-
sistently under the 50-second
barrier.
Many are wondering if
there's any reason for concern
over Williams-Darling, heading
into the IAAF World Athletics
Final in Monaco in September.
But, I would have to say no.
All she needs to do is
recharge her batteries and she
will be able to get up and go
again.
This situation is nothing new
for her.
Last year, she suffered the
same fate when she battled it
out with Mexican Ana Guevara.
Williams-Darling, however,
was able to pull off the Olympic
Games' gold medal in Athens,
Greece and she stayed unbeat-
en through the Grand Prix final,
winning half of the $1 million
jackpot.


OPINION
-K-----K-



A fatigued Williams-Darling
didn't have anything left at the
end of the season and Guevara
got revenge in the IAAF World
Athletic Final.
This year, Guevara has faded
to the third spot and Williams-
Darling has battled it out with
Richards.
Richards, the Jamaican-born
sprinter-turned-quarter-miler,


came back after losing to
Williams-Darling in the final 50
metres in Helsinki, to turn the
tables in the last two races held
on the Grand Prix circuit.
This year, there's no lofty
prize for the women's 400, so
the pressure isn't as great as it
was last year.
Williams-Darling prides her-
self on winning when it counts
the most. The Olympics and
Grand Prix last year and the
World Championships earlier
this month were prime exam-
ples.
After taking a much needed
break from Europe, she will cer-
tainly be recharged for the
World Athletics Final in Mona-
co in September.
So don't push the panic but-
ton just yet. Williams-Darling
has not conceded defeat to
Richards. Nor should we count
her out either.
PERFORMANCES
TO REMEMBER

W hile Williams-Dar-
ling led the charge
with her emotional run in the
pouring rain, the Bahamas had
many performances to remem-
ber at the 10th IAAF World
Championships in Athletics.
Despite the inclement weath-
er that rocked the headlines, all
but three of the nine days of
competition, the Bahamian
public should be proud of the


two medals, a national record,
three fourth place finishes and
seven appearances in final
events.
It was certainly by far the best


man' Sands had jumped a few
inches more in the men's triple
jump or if Chris Brown had ran
out of an inside lane in the
men's 400, the outcome would


"Williams-Darling prides herself
on winning when it counts the
most. The Olympics and Grand
Prix last year and the World
Championships earlier this month
were prime examples. After taking
a much needed break from
Europe, she will certainly be
recharged for the World Athletics
Final in Monaco in September."


performance turned in at these
biannual championships.
It also makes it easier to put
into perspective how difficult it
is to succeed at this level of
competition. You're talking
about competing against the
best in the world.
And, while we like to see that
we've done well for a small
country, our athletes don't com-
pete that way. They compete as
if we deserve to be considered
one of the powerhouses on the
world stage.
Consider this: Had Chandra
Sturrup maintain her lead in the
women's 100, if Leevan 'Super-


have been much different for
the Bahamas.
But as Sturrup summed up
after she got bumped and fell
to the ground, failing to make a
connection with Timicka Clarke
on the first exchange of the
women's 4 x 100 metre relay
heat, "some things are just not
meant to be."
At least we made our pres-
ence felt.
And, inn Osaka, Japan from
August 24-September 2, 2007,
look for the Bahamas to turn
in another spectacular showing
at the 11th IAAF World Cham-
pionships in Athletics.

Bahamian basketball player makes her mark


* By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
THREE weeks of hard
working-out with Hakeem
Olajuwon and John Lucas has
improved the skill level of
Waltia Rolle.
Fourteen-year-old Rolle,
who stands at six-feet-six-inch-
es, has taken the sport of bas-
ketball, and Houston, Texas,
by storm.
Having played the sport for
just two years, while attend-
ing the HO Nash junior high
school, Rolle is now receiving
accolades from the profes-
sional players who are assist-
ing her with her game skills.
So far, Rolle has been given
pointers from Olajuwon on
her post game and. Lucas on
the overall aspects.
Olajuwon, no stranger to
the post position, is the for-
mer center of the Houston
Rockets.
He was drafted in 1984 by
the Rockets and is placed
among the league leaders in
scoring, rebounding, blocked
shots and steals. ,
Rolle has opted to finish off
her high school career in
Houston, Texas, attending
Westbury Christian High.
According to Frank Ruther-
ford, who has offered to assist
Rolle in reaching the highest
level, "Waltia is being praised
for her athletic ability and
build."
Rutherford noted that Wal-
tia's first appearance in the
gymnasium left both Lucas
and Olajuwon in awe.
Realising that Rolle didn't
posses the skills the average
14-year-old living in the Unit-


ed Sates- has, he said that the
programme she is enrolled in
has strengthened her.
Rutherford said: "Waltia
has really improved over the
three weeks of workout.
"She is working out with
some of the best the country
has to offer.
"You can't beat working
out with persons like an
Hakeem Olajuwon and John
Lucas.
"In three weeks, her work-
outs with them, and the
strengthening work I put her
through, has really shown
improvement.
"She is going to be a great
basketball player. Although
she possess other skills, and
the basketball ones haven't
seeped through as yet, you can
see the potential.
Rolle has worked out with
top coaches in the Texas area,
meeting up with Robert Hor-
ry on one of her workout ses-
sions.
Rutherford explained that
the first thing members of the
coaching staff commented on
was Rolle's height, saying that
working on her skills is some-
thing that can be done.
He said that several coaches
approached him interested,
saying that her improvements
can land her in a division I col-
lege, before moving onto the
Women National Basketball
Association.
Shooting wise, it is said that
Rolle has a very soft touch, a
rare possession for tall play-
ers.
During the three week
work-out course, Rolle has
learned how to drop step and
lay-up with both hands.

States, who finished up sec-
ond in 11.13 seconds. Angela
Diagle rounded up the third
spot, finishing in a time of


11.28 seconds.
In the javelin, Eve had a
throw of 59.81m (196' feet 22
inches) for her second place.
Winning the event was

Ambiguities of
globalisation
By Fr. HENRY
CHARLES
FOR many people,
globalisation essentially
means global intercon-
nectedness, through the
free transnational move-
ment of people, ideas, cap-
ital, and goods.
A tacit understanding
of the process, however, is
that all cultures, even if
they are not yet so, will
eventually become one.
They will be forced to,
because of globalisation's
inevitable pressures. The
world is fast becoming
one, and cultures will have
to follow suit.
Behind this assumption
is the belief (still having
some currency) that histo-
ry is driven by material
factors, economic princi-
pally. But what does the
global picture show?
It shows that while
world economies may be
converging, cultures are
diverging, and widening
cultural differences, often
driven by radical political
faiths, are taking us more
and more into a future of
division and conflict.
This was not supposed
to happen. We had and we
retain great faith in the
belief that globalisation,
linked with the wonders of
communication technolo-
gy, would bring the world
together. But the reality is
that not every one wants
to come together.

Voices
Some cultural voices,
whether they are right-
wing talk-show hosts or
Islamic fundamentalists,
both with sizeable con-
stituencies, promote sepa-
ration, and use those same
wonders of communica-
tion technology to do so.
Globalisation has also
brought us the new, more
comprehensive awareness
that the world is a shared
environment. We see now
more than before through
global warming how the
environment links our pre-
sent and our future.
Driving SUVs in the
USA and cutting trees in
Brazil can immediately
raise the prospects of skin
cancer in Australia, or
affect crops in India. A
complex interdependence
defines our present and
our future.
Yet this knowledge
does not entirely shape
how we live. People are
creating new groupings
and new geographic and
cultural zones in and on
the outskirts of suburbs.
They are moving into self-
segregating enclaves with
people like themselves.
This is not the old seg-
regation ethos. It is new,
rooted in contemporary
freedom, but creating
invisible and sometimes
visible barriers that keep
other people out.
Globalisation has its
cultural unifiers, notably
the Internet, with all its

Insecurity.
Read Psalm 26.
"I have walked in integrity."
WE HAVE all experi-
enced insecurity at one
time or other in life. There
is the feeling of lack of skill
for a particular task,
incompetent, unsuitable,
out of place and sometimes
we feel foolish. We become
spineless or compensate by
being vocal and over-bear-
ing, The insecure person
trusts in man to vindicate
or to judge him rather than
God.

Brash
The psalmist makes some
brash statements about
himself. I once told a
friend of mine that he is a
bigot. His reply was that he
was only self-
confident. The psalmist
may seem brash, but in
reality he is very secure.
He lists three statements:
I. "I lead a blameless life."
2. "I have not wavered."
3. My feet are on level
ground." This is self-confi-
dence, not being vocal and
overbearing. He is neither
spineless nor weak. He is a
genuinely secure person.
A secure person does not
need man to vindicate him
or her. Security is to put
one's trust in the Lord "I
have trusted also in the
Lord." If we trust in the
Lord we will less likely be
insecure. We will stand
firm "My foot stands in
an even place."

i PRESIDENT of the Bahamas
Conference of the Methodist Church,
Kenris Carey, is calling on all
Methodists of the BCMC to a day of
prayer and fasting.
On Friday, August 26, members
and followers of the 34 congregations
of the BCMC are being asked to
observe a day of prayer and fasting to
pray for the conference officers and
staff, members and ministries.
: On Sunday, August 28, member
churches will include their worship
services and special prayers for the
conference as the new church year
begins in September,

ANGLICAN Churches in the
West Central Archdeaconry will hold
their 3rd Annual Congress on Thurs-
day, September 15 through Saturday,
September 17, under the theme "Rad-
ical Transformation".
Workshops, led by dynamic pre-
senters and aided by audio visuals
and displays, will focus on:
"Mission and Ministry"
"Communication and Use of
Technology"
"Identifying and Empowering
Leadership"
"Mentoring"
Sessions will be held for teens
("Contagious Christianity for Stu-
dents") and children ("Good News
Clues") so the whole family are
expected to attend.
There will be an opening Concele-
brated Eucharis t St Agnes Church
on Thursday, September 15 at
7.30pm.
Workshops will be held at Holy
Trinity on Friday, September 16 (reg-
istration begins at. 6.30pm). and on.
Saturday, September.17, beginning.at .
8.30am.


We must know some-
thing about the Lord in
whom we trust: "For thy
steadfast love is before my
eyes."
We must live obedient
lives: "I have walked in thy
truth." We must constantly
bless the Lord: "In the con-
gregation I will bless the
ord."
Security makes certain
demands on us. One must
be separated from sin. We
cannot afford to mingle
with evil.
One must avoid vain per-
sons; that is those who
have no values; hypocrites,
those who compromise
with conscience, those who
call evil good and are con-
tent.
"I will wash my hands in
innocence," is a symbol of
cleansing, in other words
dealing with one's
sins. One must engage in
some spiritual activity. It is
the sprit of thanking God
for his wonderful deeds.
There is no magic cure
for insecurity; security
comes as we do things
God's way.
-The psalmist listed three
statements of his security, a
blameless life, not waver-
ing and firmness. May I
suggest that one make a list
of three statements of
one's own security.
Promise: To walk in
integrity.
Prayer. Vindicate me,
O Lord.

Ambiguities of

globalisation

FROM page one

extraordinary possibilities.
One cannot forget the fast-
Sfood franchises, like Burger
King and McDonalds, These
tend to unify more negatively.
The French Academy (L'A-
cademie Frangaise) looks down
its nose at them, and al Qaeda
wants to blow up their sources.
In fact, if one looks around
the world today, events are for
the most part driven not by
people interested in globalised
culture, but by those who reject
it. Islamic extremists reject the
cultures of the West and envi-
sion instead an aggressive
transnational culture of Islamic
purity.
Everywhere the religiously
orthodox, from parts of Africa
to the North American heart-
land, reject what they see as
the amoral mainstream, and
carve out movements of defi-
ance and traditional religiosity.
There are still a few transna-
tional dreams, European unifi-
cation, for instance, and Arab
unity, but these are both falter-
ing.
Meanwhile, divergence in
social values and lifestyle cre-
ates divisions of its own., Bel-
gium, Spain, Sweden, the
Netherlands, and Canada
endorse same-sex marriage;
many US states have rewritten
their constitutions to exclude it.
Multi-culturalism and glob-
alisation go together in all com-
mentaries on globalisation.
National borders have
become more porous and state
sovereignty gives new weight
to a growing edifice of interna-
tional norms and regulations:
stemming from international
organisations like the United.
Nations and the World Trade
Organisation.
Identity, however, is a much
more stubborn reality, and a
little reflection shows why.
There is no such concrete thing
as a global identity. Everybody
comes from somewhere; with a
particular history, particular
customs, practices, and particu- "
lar associations. Nothing as
abstract as "global identity"
can replace this.
Many peoples find it diffi-
cult enough to create a
"national" identity out of iden-
tities rooted in ethnicity or reli-
gion.-rcanfwitness'this'." (F t'
*'dilemma beingplayedcoa;it. -'i
the moment in Iraq, and we :'
can remember how fragile fed-
eralism in Yugoslavia turned
out to be, and how quickly
(and murderously) ethnicity
and particular histories took
over when the federal veneer
was stripped.
Globalisation has to wrestle
with another nascent and prob-
lematic issue, namely, the
meaning of tolerance. Again, in
all commentaries that stress the
multicultural features of glob-
alisation, tolerance is highlight-
ed as the preeminent virtue (as
it is in discussions of pluralism).
Terrorism, however, has
caused a re-examination of the
meaning of tolerance in global
society.
Recently, Tony Blair, the
Prime Minister of Great
Britain, announced a host of
anti-terrorist measures, includ-
ing the denaturalisation of (ie
taking passports away from)
foreign nationals who engage
in "extremism." The measures
are meant to create "a new
offence of condoning or glori-
fying terrorism,"
Blair's aim was in fact a
review of tolerance under new
global conditions. "People can-
not come here," he said, "and
abuse our good nature and our
tolerance."
Constitutional law in the US
has a more explicit history of
dealing with Blair's difficulty.
In the early 1940s the
American government institut-
ed a series of denaturalisation
proceedings against foreign-
born German Americans who
supported Nazi doctrines or
were active in pro-Nazi groups.
The Supreme Court held that
these actions were unconstitu-
tional, explaining that an indi-
vidual cannot be denaturalised
for making "sinister-sounding"
statements.
The court sharply distin-
guished between radical dis-
sent, which is protected speech,
and "exhortation calling for
present violent action which
creates a clear and present
danger," that such action will
occur immediately, which is
not.


Blair said that in the face of
the new environment "the
rules of the game are chang-
ing" regarding tolerance. Per-
haps, but how governments
respond to fanaticism and pro-
moting violence needs more
definition. Blair would do well
to remember that chapter in
American history and explore
the meanings of "clear and pre-
sent danger" and "occurring
immediately."

Port of Spain, Trinidad).

Photos depict 'inner piece"


* By CLEMENT JOHNSON

ON SATURDAY, August
20, I had the pleasure of being
among those who attended a
photo exhibition by Miss
Paulette Mortimer. What
struck me most was the mes-
sage relayed by the pho-
tographs. There was a certain
calm and peace in all of them.
The photographs ranged
from the historical to the flora
of the Bahamas. In most of
them you could see that the
photographer was a religious
person. In an interview with
Miss Mortimer she readily
admitted that her work depict-
ed the inner peace that she
herself experiences.
"Over the years I have
come to realise that God is
everywhere and in everything,
in what most people would


consider insignificant or mean-
ingless, we are able to see the
hand of God at work," she
said. "I look at a sunset and
see the face of God, or I look


at beautiful flowers and see
the handwork of the creator,
which is marvelous.
"I take pictures to also
depict Bahamian everyday life


Catching the green



light for Jesus


* REV ANGELA PALACIOUS
WHEN we drive toward a light
that has been green for some
time, we often make a little more
of an effort "to catch the light." If
we are at the stop sign and we
pause for a second after the light
changes, very often the motorist
behind us will signal rather loud-
ly with a blast of the horn to get
us moving. In both instances there
is a response to the colour green
that gets us in motion.
The same is true for this green
season in the church when we
have a number of Sundays
between Pentecost and Advent.
The altar cloths and the vestments
are green and themes of growth
and ministry are often highlighted.
It is a time to ask the Holy Spirit
to inspire us to enthusiastic worship and service.
If we take seriously this invitation to exert some
energy, we will find ourselves accepting God's call
to more committed participation, to develop a gift,
or explore a blessing more intentionally. When
the light is green, we do not need to hold back or
lag behind.
It is our time to move forward with confidence
and conviction;
The prayer or collect for The Sunday closest to
August 24 in our Anglican Lectionary begins:
"Grant, 0 merciful God, that your Church, being
gathered together in unity by your Holy Spirit,
may show forth your power among all peoples, to
the glory of your Name." The key words to note
are unity, power and glory. Our response to God
encourages others to follow just as we lead the


line of traffic through an inter-
section if we are the first auto-
mobile.
Consider the power of Isaiah's
appeal in Is. 51:1-6: "Listen to me,
you that want to be saved. Think
of the rock from which you came,
and the quarry from which you
were cut. Think of your ancestor,
Abraham and of Sarah from
whom you are descended. When I
called Abraham, he was childless,
but I blessed him and gave him
children; I made his descendent
numerous...Listen to me, my peo-
ple, listen to what I say; I give my
teaching to the nations, my laws.
will them light (Is. 51:12, 4 TEV).
Psalm 138 immerses us in the
experience of one who truly loves
God: "I will give thanks to you, 0
Lord, with my whole heart...When
I called, you answered me, you increased my
strength within me...Though the Lord be high, he
cares for the lowly...The Lord will make good his
purpose for me" (v.1, 4, 7, 9 NRSV). Paul's letter
to the Romans contains this ecstatic exclamation:
"O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowl-
edge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments
and how inscrutable his ways! "For who has known
the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his coun-
sellor? Or who has given a gift to him, to receive a
gift in return?" For from him and through him
and to him are all things. To him be the glory for-
ever. Amen" (Rom 11:33-6 NRSV).
Who do you say that Jesus Is? Is He the green
light that leads you on to glory? Is He your Messi-
ah and Lord, your healer and teacher, your all in
all? If so you are on the right road.


and to highlight our historical
heritage," she said.
The exhibition -"Discov-
ering Uniqueness" was tru-
ly just that. In her travels to
Cat Island she took numerous
photographs of the Hermitage
and Mt. Alvernia, built by the
late Msgr. Jerome Hawes, the
"Hermit of Cat Island", a
Franciscan monk who was the
architect of St. Augustine's
Monastery, Fox Hill, and sev-
eral Catholic as well as Angli-
can churches throughout the
Bahamas.

Priest

An architect of some note
even before entering Angli-
can orders and serving in the
Bahamas for one year as an
Anglican priest, Msgr Hawes
converted to the Catholic faith
in 1911, and became a Fran-
ciscan priest. He returned to
the Bahamas in 1939 where
spent the rest of his life. He
is buried at Mt Alvernia,
Coma Hill, the Bight, Cat
Island, in a simple tomb of his
own design.
There were a few pho-
tographs at the exhibition that
really stood out in my mind;
one was entitled "Oh Cat
Island, Path to Mount Alver-
nia" and another was "Ray of
Hope".
"Ray of Hope" is a colossal
cross that stands on Mount


Alvernia, the highest point in
the Bahamas. The cross has
special effects of infrared
which reminds you of "Good
Friday."
Patrons attending the exhi-
bition were most impressed
by the talents of this young
woman, especially her parents,
Christopher and Mary Mor-
timer. They both said that
Paulette was a child who
always carried a camera
around with her. She was also
one who always believed in
helping other people.
The display was held at
Holy Family Catholic Church
Hall, where Miss Mortimer is
an active member. According
to Msgr. Alfred Culmer, the
photographs were all "fantas-
tic", the sunrises and sunsets
breathtaking, and Paulette a
truly talented artist.
Miss Mortimer will be one
of the young Bahamians
attending the Caribbean
Youth show in Barbados from
September 22 to 25.
Paulette was graduated in
1996 from the College of The
Bahamas with an Associate of


Arts degree in Language and
Communications with French
as a minor. In 1998 she
obtained a Bachelors of Arts
degree in French from Barry
University.
That same year she received
an award of excellence and
was a finalis t the 18th annu-
al spring photography contest
by photographer's Forum
magazine.

Degree

She was part of Barry's Pho-
tography Exhibition in Paris,
France, from October 30th to
November 30 at the Library
Gallery. In 1999 she received
the award again from Forum
magazine.
In 2002 she was graduated
from Nova Southeastern Uni-
versity, Fort Lauderdale,
Florida, with a Masters degree
in Business Administration,
and in 2004 she received
another Masters degree from
Nova, this time an Interna-
tional Business specialization
degree in international man-
agem ent. :,,, ....


The Shema: Hear, Learn, Keep, and Do
Texts: Deuteronomy 6:4-9: Deuteronomy 11:13-21: and Numbers
15:37-41
Elmo said this about 'Ears to Hear': "He that has ears to hear, let
him hear, said the gracious Christ. If we did but listen with attentive
ear we should catch the consonance of universal music. Nature is not
dumb, 'tis we who are deaf. If we did but listen, we should hear the
mute flowers singing their low, sweet melodies; and the tossing pines
would chant for us a psalm; and even the very silence itself would have
a voice for our inner ear, and a sacred message for our waiting hearts."
The Revell Bible Dictionary informs: "The Hebrew word Shema, (Hear
You), because of its emphasis on the Unity of God, is considered the
Jewish confession of faith. The first words of Deuteronomy 6:4, 'Hear,
O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is One!' gives the title to this classic
confession of Hebrew faith. The Shema was written on bits of paper;
inserted in phylacteries and meouzahs, and were.recited in the
synagogues."


Hear and Learn: Knowledge, Understanding, and Wisdom: The Shema emphasizes if God is our
primary focal point, there are numerous benefits released to us. Jesus quoted from the Shema at
Matthew 6:33 as regards our life supply, body, clothes, food, and drink: "Seek first the kingdom of
God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." Hear the voice of God, then
do what He instructs, He adds Knowledge, Understanding, and.Wisdom. Knowledge will transfer
facts to our brain, Moral Knowledge impacts the mind, conscience, will, heart, and intellect; Understanding
produces good judgment, and helps a man grasp the moral message of scripture, helping man to live
according to the will of divine revelation; Wisdom helps a man to rightly judge choices, saving him
from wicked men, and perverse words.
Proverbs 1:7, 14-16: Knowledge has its beginning in Salvation, produced when we submitted our
will in obedience to His Superior Will. Paul cautioned Timothy, his son in the Gospel: "Study diligently
to present your self approved to God, a worker who does not need.to be ashamed, rightly dividing
the Word of Truth." Wisdom brings the ability or power to obtain wealth and honour; affords us long
life, happiness, promotion; brings health to our flesh, strength to our bones, life to our souls; is an
ornament of grace to our necks; a crown of glory to our heads; leads to ways of pleasantness, paths
of peace, and delivers a sweet sleep.
Keep and Do: Memorize the Structure of the System: God gives us the necessary power [anointing]
when we are obedient to His Words. In paraphrase, when we apply ourselves to His Instructions; then
the Strength of His Undeserved Favour is released in sufficient abundance in the face of a man's
weak efforts, to complete enormous tasks. Numbers 15:37-41 commanded the Jews to put a blue
thread in the tassels of the corners of their garments to be reminded of God's Instructions. Deuteronomy
11:13-21: Latter day Jews took verses 18-21 literally; some still wear small pouches with portions
of scripture on their foreheads, and put them on their doorposts. God encouraged Joshua with these
Words, "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and
night; that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your
way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Psalm 1 offers similar advice, "Blessed is the mah who walks'not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor
stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the
Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water;
that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall
prosper."

Do means Execute: God wants us to complete all our tasks according to the established patterns
found in Scripture; using the procedures outlined, checking to ensure all actions meet the requirements,
as it relates to our special skill, gifting, or anointing as His Special Representative in the earth realm.
God wants us to conquer every difficulty we are faced with, and achieve greatness, according to His
Image and Likeness placed within us, whether we use our intellectual prowess, or physical strengths.
If we remember to Shema, Hear His Voice: Lamad, Learn God's Words: Shamar, Keep His
Commandments, Laws, and Precepts: Casah, Do what God tells us, because we know it is right.
Watch the Lord fulfil every promise He has made in the Book of His Covenant.

The Bahamas Conference of the




Methodist Church says 'thank you'


By PETURA BURROWS
Tribune Feature Writer
GIVING persons their flowers
in a sense, while they are still alive,
is often a forsaken practice. But
the Bahamas Conference of the
Methodist Church is making sure
that its members receive their
honours now. As it begins its new
church year, the Conference is.
saying "Thank You" to three of its
staff members who demit office
on August 31.
On Saturday, September 3, the
Conference will host an apprecia-
tion event at the Radisson Cable
Beach Resort, beginning at 7pm.
Rev William Higgs, who has
served as vice-president of the
Conference for the past three
years will be honoured. He will
continue to pastor the Trinity
Methodist Church.
The second honouree,
Felamease Sawyer, is a member
of St Andrew's Methodist Church,
Dundas Town, Abaco. She has
served as assistant secretary in
the Conference for three years.
Ms Emily Petty, the final hon-
ouree, is a member of the Wesley
Methodist Church, Governor's
Harbour, and served as assistant
secretary to the Conference for
three years.
Honouring those who have
demited office is not an unusual
practice for the Conference. In
fact, they usually host these events
to make sure that those leaving
office feel appreciated.
Rev Higgs, who has pastored
Trinity Methodist for six and a
half years, decided to seek the
position of vice-president of the
Conference in 2002 to make a'
contribution on a Conference lev-
el.
"I felt that I could make a con-
tribution to the Conference. And
it was an honour to be a part of
history. It was the first time that a
lay person (non-clergy) and a
woman would be president, and
* this would be the first time that a
clergyman would be in the vice-
president's position. So we were
making history and I wanted to
be a part of that," Rev Higgs told
Tribune Religion in an interview.
"But not just for the history,


but to serve the people. That's
why I am in the ministry in the
first place, to serve," he added.
According to Rev Higgs, the
Bahamas Conference of the
Methodists' constitution states
that the two top positions (presi-
dent and vice-president) must be
held by a member of the clergy,
and a lay member. At no time can
two members of the clergy or two
lay persons hold the top positions.

Elected
"We chose the president first,
,and depending on if a clergy or a
lay person is elected to that posi-
tion it determines who can go up
for the vice-presdient position,"
Rev Higgs explained.
After Mrs Kenris Carey was
elected to that position, Rev Hig-
gs became vice-president, terms
that would last three years. Mrs
Carey goes on to complete a sec-
ond term in that office, but Rev
Higgs decided to demit office and
not seek re-election in the May
conference.
Methodists in the Bahamas
meet every year in May. Every
three years is the "business con-
ference" to elect officers, Rev
Higgs explains, while the two con-
ferences in between are referred
to as "spiritual growth" confer-
ences.
He told Tribune Religion that
he did not seek re-election
because three years ago he only
committed to one term.
Reflecting on his term in office,
Rev Higgs says that certain times


* FELAMEASE SAWYER
were more demanding than oth-
ers. But the part-time position,
which basically required assisting
and supporting the president, was
not at all "detrimental' to his pas-
torate.
The main advantage, he says,
was the fellowship within the Con-.
ference. "The main highlight or
advantage is to serve on a Con-
ference level, not just on a con-
gregational level.
"It's the fellowship, the con-
nection of Methodists scattered
throughout the congregation. It
inspires you to know that even
though we all have sorrows and
pains, we have much joy and cel-
ebration. And to be able to share
that on a Conference level is
amazing," says Rev Higgs.
Rev Dr Leverne Lockhart suc-
ceeds Rev Higgs as vice-president.
Rev Higgs' advice to him is to
"keep it all in balance".
For Ms Emily Petty the fact
that she will be honoured by the
Methodist Conference is "hum-
bling". The honour, and her time
in office are experiences that she
will treasure for the rest of her
life, says Ms Petty.
Ms Petty has been a member


of the Wesley Methodist Church
in Governor's Harbour,
Eleuthera, since 1973, and has
served in numerous position over
the years. She has been a Sunday
School teacher and Sunday School
superintendent, captain of the 3rd
Eleuthera Company Girls
Brigade, congregational board
chairperson, evangelist, and a lay
preacher since 1975, and says that
she has served in practically all
areas of church leadership.
But in the last elections, she
decided that she wanted to make
a national contribution within the
Conference. While making that
contribution, she says that she has
learnt numerous skills from those
in leadership. "Being there has
helped me to become a better per-
son professionally and spiritual-
ly," she added.
Her main challenge, however,
was balancing her responsibilities
as assistant secretary to the Con-
ference and her other obligations,
which are many.
Ms Petty is principal of the
James Cistern Primary School, a
police reserve, a community
activist, vice-president of the Gov-
ernor's Harbour Development


Association, member of the Red
Cross Association, and secretary
of the Regional Women's Min-
istry of Eleuthera.
Balancing all of that and having
to come to Nassau the first Thurs-
day in every month, was no easy
feat. But she got it done "by the
grace of God".
Handling those responsibilities
for three years is one thing, but
doing it for six years in succession
is another. Ms Petty did not seek
re-election because she plans to
move on to other ventures.

Juggle
She explained: "I had to juggle
all of these things, but I can't do it
for another three years. It's
because of my other responsi-
bilites and my first job as a prin-
cipal, I felt that I wasn't doing the
Conference justice. And whenev-
er I do something I like to put in
200 per cent, and I wasn't giving
that to my position in the church."
With one less responsibility, Ms
Petty says that there is more time
for her to get some personal mat-
ters in motion. She has plans to
write a book in honour of her
mother, who was a straw vendor,
as well as pursue various educa-
tional goals.
Ms Petty is the mother of two
children who she describe as
"lovely".
Howard Johnson, who lives in
Pensacola, Florida, has recently
earned a bachelor's degree in
criminal justice and politics, and a
master's in public association, and
Rosa Johnson lives with her moth-
er in Eleuthera.
Keano Johnson (Howard's son)
also lives with his grandmother.
Felamease Sawyer could not be
reached for comment.
