Bahamian firm

takes 77 cents off

permitted price


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
IN an unprecedented move, a
Bahamian oil company has made
the decision to accept revenue
losses by not increasing its gas
prices to the legally permissible
amount.
Trade and Industry Minister
Leslie Miller is now challenging
the three major oil companies to
follow suit and "lift the burden
from, shoulders of the Bahamian
people".
With gas prices in the
Bahamas set to experience yet
another increase, Freeport Oil
Holdings Company Limited
(FOCOL) yesterday announced
that it has decided to ask 77 cents
less per gallon than the company
would be able to request under
government regulations.
Mr Miller told The Tribune
yesterday that with the current
price of crude oil per barrel at
$65, FOCOL under the existing
price control guidelines could
ask for an increase from $3.75
per gallon to $5.11 for regular
lead free gasoline, and a mark
up from $3.98 to $5.22 for pre-
mium lead free gasoline.
However, FOCOL, in a "con-
scious decision to absorb some
of the hurt", has chosen to
request only an increase from
$3.75 to $4.34 per gallon for reg-
ular, and for premium an
increase from $3.98 to $4.45, said
Mr Miller.
"FOCOL is a small Bahamian
company, they have to pay high-
er fuel charges than Shell, Tex&a-
co and Esso because they buy
smaller volumes.
"And yet they have taken a
77 cents cut and shown some
concern for the Bahamian peo-
ple. They have been able to do
what the much bigger off-shore
companies haven't been able to,"
he said.


FOCOL chairman Franklyn
Wilson explained that the com-
pany is willing to accept the rev-
enue losses for the sake of the
Bahamian people. The compa-
ny believes the move will pay-
off in the long run.
"These are really very trying
times for our customers. We sim-
ply made the decision to suffer
the short-term consequences in
favour of the long-term bene-
fits," he said.
Mr Wilson said that FOCOL
feels that the decision to charge
77 cents less per gallon "is the
prudent, sensible thing to do and
will help sustain the customer".
Applauding this decision, Mr
Miller said that he is very grate-
ful to the Freeport company.
"I thank this company for tak-
ing such a giant step, and it shows
another of the ways that the
PetroCaribe initiative can assist
the Bahamas, as the product will
be obtained from the source and
not be subjected to the shocks
of the various markets," he said.
Mr Miller said that although
he is now challenging Shell, Tex-
aco and Esso to follow FOCOL's
example, he does not believe it
will happen.
"Regarding expectations for
those three companies, I have
none, none whatsoever. They
seem to have no concern for the
Bahamian people who have been
hit hard.
"For the past two years since
gasoline prices have started rising
I have waited for them to make a
similar move but they have not
yet done so," he said.
Mr Wilson added that
although he could not say if
Shell, Texaco and Esso would
make a similar decision in the
future, he said that FOCOL, as a
Bahamian owned and based
company, has the advantage of
being more in touch with the
needs of the community.


Body of American

pilot is recovered


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE body of American pilot
Steven Fenner washed up on
shore yesterday morning fol-
lowing the crash of his aircraft
in waters near Norman's Cay
in the Exumas.
Mr Fenner, a father of
quadruplets, was killed on
Thursday afternoon when his
twin-engine Baron aircraft
reportedly experienced
mechanical problems and
crashed about 400 feet off Nor-
man's Cay.
Rescue parties, which inclid-
ed Defence Force officers of (he
Exuma Land and Sea Park and


officials of the Bahamas Air Sea
and Rescue Association (BAS-
RA), searched throughout the
day and into the night for Mr
Fenner, combing through
wreckage of the plane and
waters around the small cay.
At 8.30am Friday, the body
was discovered on a beach near
the Norman's Cay dumpsite.
The body was secured and
placed in an aircraft hangar
before being transported to
New Providence for an autopsy.
BASRA operations manag-
er Chris Lloyd told The Tribune
yesterday that initially rescue
workers were concerned that

Man and baby


die in crashes


A MAN and a two-month-
old infant died on Thursday
following separate traffic
incidents.
According to police press
liaison officer Inspector Wal-
ter Evans, the two-month-old
baby boy died from injuries
after he and his mother were
hit by a white Ford pick-up
truck. They were reportedly
attempting to get out of a
vehicle at the time.
The incident occurred on
Constitution Drive shortly
before 10pm Thursday. The
driver of the truck was held
for questioning in connection
with the incident, said Inspec-
tor Evans.


Police also reported that
shortly before 4pm Thursday,
the driver of a 2000 gray Kia
Sportage jeep registration
7861 collided with a 19910
Toyota Camry registration
131762 travelling east on,
Thompson Boulevard. After
hitting the Camry, the jeep-
crashed into the pavement at'
the eastern side of the road.
The driver of the jeep had
to be taken to the Princess
Margaret Hospital, where he
later died from injuries sus-
tained in the crash.
Up to press time yesterday,
the police had not yet con-
firmed the identity of the vic-
tims.


EU to donate


$8.3m to boost


Family Islands


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas is to benefit
from an $8.3 million donation
from the European Union that
will help boost infrastructure
in the less developed Family
Islands, it was announced yes-
terday.
However, the challenge will
be to ensure that the donation
is used in a timely manner,
something that has not been
done in the past and which may
jeopardise the possibility of


future donations, said Minister
of Trade and Industry Leslie
Miller.
For the past month, EU sub-
contractors Jens Anker Jacquet
and Frantz Buch Knudsen of
Ramboll Dannmark have been
conducting feasibility studies
of potential projects in the
Family Islands. At a press con-
ference yesterday, the men,

Pratt praises Bahamian response to Katrina


THE outpouring of support from
Bahamians for the victims of Hurricane
Katrina "is what makes us unique as a
people," according Deputy Prime Minister
Cynthia Pratt.
Mrs Pratt told The Tribune yesterday
that the prompt and generous offers of
aid to US hurricane victims from both the
public and the private sector has made her
"proud to be a Bahamian".
"Bahamians as I know them always
cared about other people before them-
selves," she said.


Earlier this week, the government
announced that it would lead local relief
efforts with a donation of $50,000.
On Wednesday, Sunshine Holdings
chairman Franklyn Wilson announced
another initiative, to be spearheaded by
members of the private sector.
"This is an initiative to encourage per-
sons who live in the Commonwealth of
the Bahamas to demonstrate solidarity
with America as that country faces and
seeks to rebuild from what has been
described as the largest natural disaster in


the history of that country," Mr Wilson
said in a statement.
The co-chairs of the initiative include
Jones Communications chairman Wendall
Jones and Bank of the Bahamas chairman
Alfred Jarrett.
Other organisers and sponsors include
Tribune publisher Eileen Carron, Nassau
Guardian publisher Charles Carter,
100JAMZ radio and JOY FM radio,
Gaylen Saunders of MORE FM radio,

Police officers



do their part



in providing



new supplies



for school


IN an effort to put citizens
first, officers of the Grove
Police Station donated school
supplies to the community's
underprivileged children.
On Friday, officer-in-
charge of the station Super-
intendent Steven Seymour,
along with other station offi-
cers, presented book bags
filled with essential school
supplies to primary, junior
and senior students from the
surrounding area.
Mr Seymour said that after
visiting the communities and
schools in the Grove, officers
noticed that several students
lacked sufficient school sup-
plies.
He therefore requested the
assistance of Office Depot
and the Willie Gary law firm
in the United States, who


helped in making the pre-
sentation possible.
"It is a good outreach ges-
ture and the police are mak-
ing their presence felt in a
positive way. It helps the chil-
dren to see the police as a
friend rather than someone
to fear," said guidance coun-
selor at the Yellow Elder pri-
mary school Barbara Clarke-
Bethel.
The primary schools bene-
fiting from the gesture
included CW Sawyer, EP
Roberts, Mable Walker,
Ridgeland, Yellow Elder and
St Cecilia.
Students of AF Adderley
and CH Reeves junior high
schools, and Government
high school and RM Bailey
high were also presented
with supplies.

* HAITI
Port-au-Prince

UN peacekeepers stormed a
volatile slum in Haiti's capital
on Friday and at least two
civilians were wounded in the
crossfire, according to Associ-
ated Press.
The UN operation in the
Cite Soleil slum targeted
armed gangs who were sus-
pected of having attacked
peacekeepers, UN officials
said. Heavy gunfire was heard
for several hours.
Residents said they were
caught in the crossfire for


much of the afternoon, lying
on the floors of their homes
to avoid the shooting.
One civilian was evacuated
with a bullet through his
shoulder. A boy of about sev-.
en was severely wounded
while hiding in his house, said
a neighbor, Maxo Joseph.
The local head of the aid
group Medecins Sans Fron-
tieres said they had received
several wounded, but he was
unable to give a precise count.
At: least eight suspecteg
gang members were arrested
after the shooting, authorities
said.

Union protests employee




treatment at Holiday Inn


HOTEL union members yesterday
protested the "poor treatment" of employ-
ees at a Paradise Island resort.
Lead by union president Pat Bain, the
members were demonstrating against
"management's poor treatment of employ- .
ees" at the Holiday Inn Sun Spree Hotel.
Earlier this week, the union had threat-
ened industrial action if the hotel's man-
agement continued to ignore the union's .
requests to settle outstanding disputes.
The Bahamas Hotel Catering and Allied
Workers Union has accused Sun Spree of
"deliberately violating" the industrial .
agreement contract, and claimed that man-
agement has refused to attend various
meetings to address outstanding matters,
despite repeated requests.
"We are left with no other alternative
but to register our utter disgust with this
group of managers who obviously have
no regard for the laws of our land or the
people of our country.
"The employees of the Sun Spree con-
tinue to get the bad end of the stick and it
appears that if the union don't take a stand
.nobody will," said union general secretary
Leo Douglas.
As more than a dozen protesters con-
tinued the demonstration throughout the
day, police presence increased and addi-
tional officers were called in by the hotel's
management. However, the demonstra-
tion went off without incident.

MAGISTRATE Linda Vir-
gill is set to hear final submis-
sions from the lawyer for Aba-
co councillor Cay Mills, who is
accused of assaulting a fellow
local government administra-
tor.
Mr Mills, an outspoken mem-
ber of Abaco's local govern-
ment, was charged with assault-
ing Marsh Harbour administra-
tor Revis Rolle on June 7 this
year.
He is also charged with caus-
ing damage to Mr Rolle's spec-

Marsh Harbour police said
that at 1.15pm that day, Mr


Rolle arrived at the police sta-
tion to report that he had been
punched in the face about five
minutes earlier.
He told police it was Cay
Mills, outgoing chief councillor
of Abaco Island council, who
struck him, leaving him with a
wounded left eye and broken
glasses.
The allegations have been
contested by Mr Mills' lawyer
Arthur Minns.
This week, Mr Minns asked
Magistrate Virgill if he could
be provided with transcripts of
the proceedings thus far before
he addressed the court.
The court said it would pro-
vide the transcripts, and set the

Isle of Capri helps out




its hurricane-hit staff


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter


FREEPORT Isle of Capri
S is lending a much-needed help-
-- ing hand to its Biloxi, Missis-
sippi team members who lost
their homes and suffered exten-
sive property damage when
Hurricane Katrina ripped
* through the Gulf Coast.
S Kelly Ireland, marketing
manager and public relations
spokesman, said casino work-
ers in Freeport are holding a
car wash on Saturday to raise


funds for the relief effort.
Isle of Capri, which is head-
quartered in Biloxi, has suffered
significant damage to its opera-
tion there.
The hotel and casino sus-
tained substantial water dam-
age due to severe flooding. The
barge is also out of commission.
Ms Ireland reported that 30
to 40 per cent of the company's
workers. in Biloxi lost their
homes, while others sustained
severe property.
Following hurricanes Frances
and Jeanne last September, Isle


of Capri team members in the
United States raised some
$50,000 in funds for the com-
pany's workers on Grand
Bahama.
Now Freeport's casino work-
ers want to return the favour to
their Biloxi. counterparts.
Eddie Llambias, casino gen-
eral manager, was not available
for comment up to press time

Miller 'confident' that Cabinet



will sign up to PetroCaribe


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
Trade and Industry Minister
Leslie Miller said he is confi-
dent that Cabinet will sign the
contract for the fuel initiative
after an "insightful meeting" at
the PetroCaribe summit in
Jamaica, .
Mr Miller said his confidence
stems from the fact that Works
Minister Bradley Roberts and
Foreign Affairs Minister Fred
Mitchell sat face-to-face with
their regional counterparts at
the meeting, particularly repre-
sentatives from Venezuela.
This, he said, enabled the two
ministers to get a full apprecia-
tion of what the PetroCaribe
deal is all about.


Mr Miller has supported the
PetroCaribe proposal for the
past year as a way to counteract
rising fuel costs by eliminating
the middle man when purchas-
ing petroleum products.
"I still believe that at the end
of the day PetroCaribe would
indeed be of great assistance to
the people of the Bahamas," he
said.
While the Bahamas did not
sign anything at the Jamaica
meeting, Mr Miller did sign on
to the framework agreement in
Venezuela on June 29.
"It is anticipated that at the
end of the day once all the Cab-
inet colleagues are back in town
at the end of vacation, and we
are able to hold a full cabinet,
the incentive is likely to be


signed especially since we had
the two ministers there and had
all the questions that might have
been of concern answered," he
stated.
Mr Miller also discussed pro-
posals for the creation of a
national energy corporation to
co-ordinate the initiative on the
Bahamas end.
He said it is anticipated that
the Fuel Usage Committee will
recommend that rather than
forming a corporation, the gov-
ernment should create a com-
pany, which would eliminate the
need for approval from parlia-
ment.
Mr Miller said the body might
then be called the Bahamas
National Energy Agency.
He added that this proposed


company would not be a "cum-
bersome agency," but rather a
small body comprised of only
about five employees. These,
he said, would probably be
transplanted from his ministry.
Addressing concerns about
the Bahamas working too close-
ly with Venezuelan president
Hugo Chavez, the minister
pointed out that Mr Chavez was
elected on exactly the same
basis as Perry Christie; in fair
and transparent elections.
He said Mr Chavez has done
a tremendous job in uplifting
Venezuela's the poor and
downtrodden.
"We have never had a prob-
lem with Venezuelans," he said
claiming that most contrary
views are without basis.

as "a bomb waiting to go
off" as residents continued
to complain about smoul-
dering pit-fires at an immi-
grant settlement off Joe Far-
rington Road.
Bahamians living near a
Haitian community at
Marigold Farm say bodies of
humans and animals are
being burned in the fires,
causing sickening smells day
and night.
They also claim that
Haitians are being "robbed"
by some police officers who,
they add, run protection
rackets to save their victims
from deportation.
The claims come as con-
cern grows among doctors
over the high Haitian
birthrate at Princess Mar-
garet Hospital and fears con-
tinue over the possible future
"creolisation" of Bahamian
society.
One woman living near
the Joe Farrington Road set-
tlement said yesterday: "This
is a bomb waiting to go off.
Between the squalor they
have to live in and everyone
from their boss-man to gov-
ernment officials robbing
them, how long do you think
it will take before they rise
up and riot? You see how
they handle problems back
in their homeland."
The woman said that,
though she had no direct
proof that Haitians were
burning bodies on the pit-
fires, the smell of burning
flesh was very strong.
"My husband as a child in
Eleuthera remembers the
smell, as that is what they
did in the old days. I have
also heard of them
(Haitians) burying them in
shallow graves as well.
"The Haitians have been
here for decades. Can any-
one show what has been
done with their dead? They
don't send a dead body
home. So many of them
arrive here sick as well."
The woman said it was
wrong to expect fellow
human beings to live in
squalor. "Why can't the gov-
ernment build low-cost
apartments for these
refugees.? We obviously need
them for certain jobs that
Bahamians aren't willing to
do. So provide a sanitary
area for them to reside."
She added: "Everyone
chooses to ignore the conta-
mination of our land, the air
we breathe, but what other
choice do these people have?
We are all made to suffer
just because the government
turns a blind eye.
"Right now, we are angry
because we are personally
suffering from the stink. I
just want the fire department
to do their job and put out
these fires."
Earlier this week, police
said they could not confirm
reports of human bodies
being burned at the site, but
they admitted that pit fires
associated with Haitian set-
tlements had caused com-
plaints.

How to face





the world





economy


EDITOR, The Tribune
Permit me please to express
some views on a number of
matters important to the future
economic outlook for the
Bahamas.
I have been known to say that
if the Bahamas were to suffer a
great economic upheaval, it will
not come on the back of a nat-
ural disaster. That is an expres-
sion of faith. I have argued that
our calamities, should they
come, will turn on a failure of
principle and/or purpose. That
is an expression of fact; even if it
is philosophical.
At the moment, New Orleans
is being lacerated by a natural
temptress Hurricane Katrina.
What should be important to
us is the critical damage to oil
rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, and
the impact of this damage alone
on insurance companies; par-
ticularly ones holding profit-loss
policies. The second danger is
That there is no excess energy
capacity anywhere on earth.
Editor, in a previous letter, I
referred to a lecture of mine in
2001 in which I tried to explain
that oil prices would increase
to USD$80 per barrel. (This
indicates a USD $3 billion dol-
lar increase to the airline indus-
try alone in operational expens-
es).
I shall like now to suggest
that according to our analysis
here at the Landfall Centre, we
expect oil prices to hit from
USD$150-200 per barrel in the
next three years. There are sev-
eral reasons for this, many of
which I cannot explain in this
"limited space:
:I'irst, we believe letonflictl
in Iraq will result iniicivilwar.
We believe, after two years of
close analysis that this is
unavoidable. Everyone knows
the issues of Shia and Sunni
relations, and Iran's connection
to the Shia, leaving Sunnis ner-
vous. Our view is that the Kur-
dish issue is more telling.
The Kurds' ancestral home-
land is one of the world's most
oil-rich land masses. Over the
last 100 years, they have fought
Britain, Syria, Iran, Iraq and
Turkey for this land. During the
Iraq conflict, they have man-
aged to take Mosul and Kirkuk,
much to the dismay of Turkey.
If the US leaves Iraq, any one
of these powers, (except
Britain) may invade. Turkey
will definitely invade using
some nebulous excuse of fight-
ing terrorism or something of
the sort.
Someone may say as long as
the US is in Iraq there is little to
fear of such an invasion. First,
the Kurds have little reason to
believe that, given the US
actions after the first Iraq con-
flict. Second, it means the US
will have to remain in Iraq,
which they cannot do.
We have reviewed local


papers in cities where large con-
tingents of US troops have
returned home. Overall, there is
a sense that Americans are
going about their daily routines,
hanging out in caf6s, going to
sporting events, shopping and
engaging in "plastic patriotism",
whilst people are actually dying
in large numbers; their names
and their heroic exploits largely
unknown, because of the
administration's decision to con-
trol information coming out of
Iraq.
Look for the Kurds to begin,
buying large stock of weapons
in the next few months, and for
Turkey to begin making aggres-
sive noises.
Either way, if the US stays in
Iraq, they risk troop morale,
and many more instances of
prisoner abuse... which will
lead to increases in the price of
oil. If they leave, Turkey will
invade and this will lead to an
increase in the price of oil. And
every $10 increase results in
USD$500 million of costs of the
airline and travel industry.
Many airlines have benefit-
ted from futures contacts for
fuel. As such, when oil prices
hit USD$50.00, they had agree-
ments in place to buy for
USD$30.00. .
Those contracts will run out
in three years and will not be
extended.
Addition, three of the four
major airlines are a "hair's
breadth" away from bahkrupt-
cy. All told, look for a major
repositioning in the travel indus-
try in the next three years, with
powerful impacts on touristic
economies.


What we must do here in the
Bahamas is the following:
Consider unpegging our dol-
lar and backing our currency
with gold. (If we had done this
three years ago, our currency
would be up 30 per cent against
the US dollar).
Wage a war against igno-
rance, educational decline and
crime. Generally, an efficient
application of educational
resources leads to a reduction
crime.
Consider bridging Grand
Bahama and Abaco, Nassau;
Eleuthera, Exuma and the
Cays, Long Island; Crooked
Island, Acklins and Mayagua-
na. I know there are those who
have opposed this in the past.
But these islands will not sur-
vive without more direct access.
Building and construction costs
are higher because of their
remoteness. Eleuthera for
instance is fast losing most of
its young people. Better, more
direct access will also increase
property values.
Creating an intra-island
tourist platform will make us
less dependent on short-term
tourism, expand the touristic
experience, force internal com-
petition, and depopulate Nas-
sau.
Additionally, the bridge sys-
tem can be owned by Bahama-
sair in partnership with FAST
Ferries and the public, as it
should. It is the only viable
option for Bahamasair, because
it will streamline the routes and
set up a flexible travel system
throughout the islands. More-
over, if we move hard and fast
into alternative fuels and new
oil partnerships, we can control
our fuel costs more directly.

Urgent concerns


on road traffic


we must tackle


EDITOR, The Tribune

THERE was a real fanfare
announcing the change of the
Controller of Road Traffic.
Jack Thompson came in with
a bang, new ideas and "new
style".
To separate himself from
the predecessor, he set out an
ambitious PR exercise.
Dressed to the nine, he paint-
ed a picture that road traffic
would not be business as usu-
al and that he intended to
approach things with a
renewed vigour that would be
better for the motoring public
and the staff under his super-
vision.
But the fact of the rhatter is
that Road Traffic now opens
at 9.30am instead of 9am,
which is a great inconvenience
for the public. The scrutiny
of vehicles before they are
issued an inspection seems to
be the same. The streets of
New Providence are fre-
quented with large trucks that
belch out the blackest smoke,
which is a serious concern for
the environment. Large
trucks, many of which move
around before daybreak do
not have front or rear lights.
This begs the question: is
someone providing inspection
and licences without these
vehicles present?
If Jack Thompson is seri-


ous about making a differ-
ence, he should monitor these
few things.
1) He should crack down
on the number of vehicles
that are being issued inspec-
tion stickers without the vehi-
cle being present.
2) He should take a serious
interest op how many large
trucks and tractor trailers dri-
ve around every day without
head lamps or rear lights.
1 3) Mr Thompson should
investigate on how jet ski
operators may tow as many
as 10 jet skis on a trailer with-
out :ny light on the rear of
thi trailer. This particularly
is -erious traffic hazard.
s,) Cars without doors or
hoods are driving around
without fear.
This is not to discredit Mr
Thompson, because the police
are equally responsible for
not being vigilant enough to
spot these infractions and
bringing these violators to jus-
tice.
Bahamians seem to be a
reactive society. We wait until
someone is dead, before we
address a problem that we
knew all along to be detri-
mental. A word to the wise is
sufficient.

Ministry claims




school repair




projects have




been completed


* BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Major repairs
and restoration projects at the
Grand Bahama public schools
devastated by last year's hurri-
canes have been completed
according to a Ministry of Edu-
cation official.
District superintendent of
schools Hezekiah Dean report-
ed that only minor repairs are
still needed at some of the
schools on the island.
For the first time since hurri-
canes Frances and Jeanne, stu-
dents of West End primary
school returned to their newly
restored buildings on Monday.
Following the devastation at
West End, the students were
relocated to other schools in
Freeport.
"The two buildings that were
destroyed during the storms
have been totally replenished
and school is functioning there
as it should," reported Mr
Dean.


At Martin Town primary
school, most of the classroom
buildings have been restored.
Only one building, contain-
ing four classrooms, remains
closed.

Trailers

Mr Dean said that two trail-
ers have been set up at the
school to accommodate stu-
dents.
The ministry, he said, plans
to build additional classrooms
in the near future to replace the
trailers.
Rudy Sands, Bahamas Union
of Teachers area vice president,
said he is very impressed with
the restoration at West End pri-
mary.
During his tour of schools in
the west, he also visited the
Holmes Rock and Martin Town
-primary schools.
"I understand that trailers are
being used to accommodate stu-
dents at the schools, which seem


to be coping well," said Mr
Sands.
Turning his attention to issues
regarding teachers, the union
leader complained that Grand
Bahama teachers are still owed
back pay and allowances by the
government.
Mr Sands claims that some
teachers are owed back pay for
the past three years.
Others terminated since
March are still awaiting their
packages from the government,
he said.
"The government is not as
efficient as it should be and they
expect teachers to produce
quality public education.
"This should never happen in
this age of computerisation. It
is appalling that the Ministry of
Education is still so far behind in
payments to teachers," he said.
"We in the union believe that
is wrong and hope that these
issues can be sorted out in the
quickest possible time because
teachers are hurting," said Mr
Sands.

"I think that the country has missed a golden
opportunity to lavish support for the United
States. Remember that the US has always come
to our aid and this would have been a good
time to return the favor. I think that the hotel
union and Ministry of Tourism should also
come up with a way to maybe take in some of
the displaced persons. This is the slow period
and there are rooms available, I am sure that
they could work something out to give them

Two students presented with scholarships


* Jessie Smith, secretary of theRake and Scrape Festival Committee; Allworth Rolle, president of the committee; Sir Clement
Maynard, chairman of the Endowment for the Performing Arts; recipient Cyntyche Glinton; and Lady Edith Turaquest, patron
of the Endowment for the Performing Arts


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Rake and Scrape Festival Com-
mittee has presented top students from
Cat Island with college scholarships.
Yesterday, Cyntyche Glinton of
Arthur's Town high school and Olivia
King of Old Bight were each the recipients
of a $2,000 scholarship towards studies at
the College of the Bahamas.
The scholarships were sponsored by the
Endowment of the Performing Arts


chaired by Sir Clement Maynard and Lady
Edith Turnquest.
President of the Rake and Scrape Fes-
tival Committee Allworth Rolle said the
students were chosen based on their per-
formance in the Bahamas General Cer-
tificate' of Secondary Education
(BGCSE).
Ms Glinton, who sat six BGCSE exams,
said she earned all A's and C's in her
exams. Ms King who sat nine exams, said
she earned four A's, one B and Four C's.
"We go out and seek sponsorship from


the private and public sectors to try and
help the deserving students who are
unable to get a jump start in their college
life," said Mr Rolle.
Ms Glinton, who started COB this fall,
is studying early childhood education.
She encouraged all students, especially
those from her island, "to study hard and
aim for their goals."
Ms King, who is studying primary edu-
cation, said her long-term goals include
graduating from college with honours and
opening a preschool and primary school.

Calls for Alfred




Sears to step




down for 'lack




of leadership'


* By NATARIO MCKENZIE
THE Bahamas Democratic
Movement (BDM) is calling for
the removal of Alfred Sears as
the Minister of Education, say-
ing that he has not been effec-
tive in the role over the past
three years.
BDM leader Cassius Stuart
told members of the press yes-
terday that Mr Sears has failed
to provide "the leadership and
direction that the ministry
needs."
Mr Stuart said that it is
"unacceptable and appalling for
government schools to be in the
conditions that they are in"
after an-eight week summer
break when all the necessary
repairs and renovations could
have been made.
"Why is it that every year the
minister has to scramble to find


some contractor to repair
schools after the start of .the
school semester," Mr Stuart
asked. "It is awfully shameful
that many of our schools are in
need of supplies and not fit to
accommodate teachers and stu-
dents," he said.
Mr Stuart said the Ministry
of Education is vital to the
future of the Bahamas and
should not have to share a min-
ister with any other ministry.
Mr Sears is also the attorney
general.

Conflict

Mr Stuart said that over the
past three years, the BDM has
been calling for a separate min-
ister for the Ministry of Educa-
tion.
"It is clear that the minister


cannot get the job done. The
minister claimed that he is being
frustrated, then imagine how
our teachers, students and par-
ents feel," Mr Stuart said.
Mr Stuart went on to say that
the Ministry of Education needs
to establish its own maintenance
department to ensure that
school repairs are completed
properly and on time.
He said the BDM supports
any teacher sit out over unfair
school conditions, adding that
parents should also not allow
their children return to unfit
schools.
"One of the criteria by which
a government is to be judged is
by the way it treats the youth of
the nation. For the past 15
years, both the PLP and the
FNM have not given our chil-
dren the attention and care that
they need," Mr Stuart said.


'Strong bonds' between


Malaysia and Bahamas


* HIS Excelleicy-ZainotAbidin Bin Omar, High Commissioner of Malaysia to The Bahamas, pre-

during a ceremony at Government House

* By Bahamas Information
Services
ALTHOUGH the tenure of
the former Malaysian High
Commissioner was brief, the
bonds of co-operation between
the Bahamas and Malaysia have
been strengthened, Governor-
General Dame Ivy Dumont
said on September 1.
Dame Ivy's remarks were
made as she accepted the Letters
of Commission from His Excel-
lency Zainol Abidin Bin-Omar,
the new high commissioner of
Malaysia to the Bahamas and
the letters of the recall of His
Excellency Dato' Mohammed
Kamal Bin Yan Yahaya.
"As former colonies of
Britain," the governor-general
said, "Malaysia and the
Bahamas share certain cultur-
al and ideological ties, which
have been the basis of our co-
operation over the years. Our
governments share similar
ambitions, such as the eradica-
tion of poverty, the recognition
of knowledge as a pathway to
prosperity and a firm commit-
ment to sustainable develop-
ment, environmental protection


and a high quality of life for our
people."
Malaysia and the Bahamas
enjoy a long history of co-oper-
ation through the United
Nations, the Commonwealth,
the Non-Aligned Movement
and Group of 77.
The governor-general said
Malaysia remains an advocate
for developing countries and
continues to champion the
issues facing small-island devel-
oping states like the Bahamas.
She listed issues such as
health, the environment, human
and resource development and
economic growth.
Dane Ivy noted that Malaysia
has participated in 17 peace-
keeping missions, demonstrat-
ing its steadfast commitment to
international peace and securi-
ty under the auspices of the
United Nations.
"Malaysia, like the Bahamas,
recognises the importance of
the United Nations as a channel
for the maintenance of peace
and the establishment of north-
south alliances. Further, our
governments support multilat-
eralism through the United
Nations, as a means of resolving


conflicts among members of the
international community.
"Increasingly, it is important
for small and developing coun-
tries like ours to achieve politi-
cal co-operation and consensus,
through various international
bodies, as a means of advancing
our particular interests," the
governor-general said.
She noted that tourism
remains the primary industry in
the Bahamas. "Increased efforts
have been made, however, to
encourage economic diversifi-
cation through the development
of other sectors.
In this connection, the gov-
ernment of the Bahamas would
value increased bilateral trade
and technical cooperation with
Malaysia in the areas of infor-
mation and communications
technology, tourism promotion
and international finance.
"We take this opportunity to
express our gratitude to the gov-
ernment of Malaysia for the
technical assistance already
offered through the Malaysian
Technical Co-operation Pro-
gramme in the form of scholar-
ships and training courses," the
governor-general said.


Defence Force marine completes

training course at US navy base


LEADING Seaman Andre
Major, a 22-year veteran of the
Royal Bahamas Defence Force,
returned home recently after
successfully completing the
Quartermaster "A" course at a
United States Navy training
facility in Chicago, Illinois.
The seven-week course, was
sponsored by the International
Military Education Training
(IMET) scheme offered through
the American Embassy.


It was conducted at the navy's
Service School Command train-
ing facility in Great Lakes from
July 5 to August 23.
The lessons were designed to
teach participants the funda-
mentals of navigation.
Subjects covered included
aids to navigation, nautical
charts and publications, rules of
the road, piloting, magnetic and
gyro-compass systems, terres-
trial and celestial navigation, as


well as weather reporting and
observation.
Students had to take part in
both, practical and theoretical
exercises in a classroom setting.
Major is a graduate of the
NGM Major high school in
Long Island, and serves
onboard HMBS Bahamas.
The Royal Bahamas Defence
Force has benefited from the
US Navy's quartermaster train-
ing since the early 1980's.

Expressing





through pu


sincere gratitude





iblic recognition


LAST Saturday evening,
the Progressive Liberal
Party (PLP) held an installation
exercise at which almost 100 of
its members received that polit-
ical organisation's highest hon-
our elevation to its Stalwart
Council.
The event, held in the ball-
room of the Wyndham Cable
Beach Resort, was well attend-
ed by party members as well as
relatives and friends of the hon-
orees.
Some three decades ago,
when the Stalwart Council was
originally established, its initial
policy limited its membership
to only 25 persons with addi-
tions being made only follow-
ing the demise of any of those
thus selected to serve on that
body.
However, it did not take long
for the party to realise that such
a policy did a tremendous dis-
service to countless others
whose contribution to the
organisation's successful devel-
opment was deserving of similar
recognition.
As a result, the Stalwart
Council's restrictive policy was
amended to allow as many who
were eligible for membership
in the same to be so honoured
and recognised, normally at the
party's annual convention.
In time, the number of per-
sons recommended by the Stal-
wart Council's selection com-
mittee for membership to that
body became so large that, for
economic and logistic reasons,
the PLP began holding instal-
lation ceremonies in some of
the Family Islands.

Another contributing
factor to the change


in the Stalwart Council's eligi-
bility policy was the resentment
expressed by the relatives of
older PLP members, who felt
that their parents' contribution
to. the party's success made in
many instances at great person-
al sacrifice presumably had
not been appreciated, and thus
had gone unrecognised by that
political organisation.
Given the social, economic
and political conditions pre-
vailing at the advent of the PLP
in the early 1950s, and the Free
National Movement (FNM) in
the early 1970s, it was no easy
road indeed for the founders
and early members and sup-
porters of both political organ-
isations.
Many of those persons, who
had given their all and suffered
much in the process of so doing,
did not even live to see the ini-
tial electoral success of the for-
mer in 1967 and the latter in
1992.
Yet, still, their contributions
helped to make it all possible.
Hence, the imperative need for
them to be accorded some
recognition for the same. That is
why the PLP established its
Stalwart Council.
That is why the FNM created
its Meritorious Council, eleva-
tion to which represents the
highest honour that organisa-
tion can bestow upon its deserv-
ing members.

As a relative of ours
was among those
receiving the collar and badge
of Stalwart Councilor at last
Saturday's affair, we made the
effort despite our illness to
share the grand occasion with
her, along with the rest of our
family.


VIEWPOINT
-L V ii:ii::: V ;


G EORG


We were glad that we attend-
ed the function, for yet another
reason. Being there also afford-
ed us the opportunity of seeing
many elderly persons whom we
had witnessed giving their all to
the PLP- while we were among
student followers of the party
in its early days finally receive
genuine appreciation and public
recognition for the roles they
played in its development.
Highlight of the evening,
however, was the speech given
by the party's leader, the Rt
Hon Perry G Christie, who,
along with Deputy Prime Min-
ister the Hon Cynthia Pratt,
were also awarded their sym-
bols of Stalwart Council mem-
bership by former Deputy
Leader and Deputy Prime Min-
ister the Hon Arthur D Hanna.
In his address, Mr Christie
not only assured those in atten-
dance of his physical fitness, but
also demonstrated the same by
performing an abbreviated ver-
sion of his famous "Christie
Shuffle".
In a more serious vein, Mr
Christie gave a capsule account
of his party's history, inclusive
of the extraordinary roles ordi-
nary people such as many of
those being honoured on that
occasion played in ushering
in majority rule.
By so doing, he stated, they
enabled the PLP as the gov-
erning party to take this for-
mer British colony into Inde-
pendence and to satisfactorily
address most of the social, eco-


AC K EY


nomic and political inequities
that initially gave rise to its evo-
lution.
Continuing, Mr Christie
expressed his personal gratitude
and that of his party not only
to the honorees, but also to
their families who likewise had
to share their loved ones with
the organisation during the
most crucial times of its devel-
opment.

H e further stated that
he is ever mindful of
the fact that he and his parlia-
mentary colleagues many of
whom are serving in that capac-
ity for the very first time are
actually standing on their shoul-
ders and many others like them.
Therefore, he admonished his
colleagues to always treat them
with respect and appreciation.
Again, assuring all of his
physical fitness, he emphasised
that he will successfully lead his
party into the next general elec-
tion, despite the fact that there
are many in the country who by
their constant negative rhetoric
have virtually given him up for
dead.
Finally, it is sadly true that
ours is still a society where, in
far too many instances, kisses
go by favour and people are
judged by who their parents are,
where they live, and the nature
of their social status.
In such a setting, the small
people notwithstanding their
contribution or achievement -


* PRIME Minister Perry Christie during his rousing address at
the Stalwart Councillor event


are generally overlooked come
recognition time, while others
- less deserving -in many
instances receive public awards
and recognition.
Thus, we derived much sat-
isfaction in watching the joy on
the faces of the relatives and
friends of the newly-installed
Stalwart Councillors in seeing
that at long last they were


receiving from their party the
sincere gratitude and public
recognition they so rightly
deserved.
Think on these things.

Classroom overcrowding and shortage of



teachers 'still a problem in Grand Bahama'


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Student over-
crowding and teacher shortages
continue to present major prob-
lems to the public high schools
on Grand Bahama according to
education and union officials.
District superintendent of
schools Hezekiah Dean
revealed that construction on
one of two new junior schools is
expected to be complete later
this year.
This, he said, should help to
alleviate the overcrowding situ-
ation at the two high schools in
Freeport.


There are 1,640 students reg-
istered at St Georges' high
school. About 1,400 students
are registered at Jack Hayward
high school.
Although each of the schools
were built for between 1,000
and 1,200 students, Mr Dean
said both schools have been in
excess of this limit for some
time.
"I would say that overcrowd-
ing in this case is a relative term
because these schools have
been occupying beyond that
number for years and so we are
now thinking about what we
can accommodate in terms of
finding space," he explained.


Rudy Sands, Bahamas Union.
of Teachers area vice president,
stressed that the public educa-
tion system on Grand Bahama
is in dire need of a junior high
school to alleviate overcrowding
at the secondary schools in
Freeport.
"I have been told that over-
crowding is a challenge and that
there are several teaching posi-
tions not filled at the high
schools," he said.
Mr Sands claimed that edu-
cation is not getting the full
attention it deserves from the
minister of Education.
"We haven't had a full-time
minister who had been able to

give full attention to his min-
istry. I believe it has created this
problem because we should
have had a junior high school
last year."
Mr Sands added that there is
a need for more teachers at the
high schools.
Mr Dean said he believes that
the two high schools will in fact
be able to handle this year's stu-


dent population.
He said the construction of
the two junior high schools will
greatly alleviate the over-
crowding.
"We have been told that per-
haps by September one school
should be completed to alleviate
this situation in the high
schools," he said.
The Grand Bahama Port


Authority has donated land and
funds for the construction of the
schools.
In reference to the teachers
shortage, Mr Dean said that
there is a particular need for
math, language arts and reli-
gious studies teachers.
"We are trying to get these
positions filled in short order,"
he said.

Questions Katrina



raises for Bahamas


N the wake of a devastat-
ling hurricane, such as
Katrina, respect for human
rights must be maintained.
Everyone has the right to life,
liberty and security of person.
The Bahamas should exam-
ine now, before our next hurri-
cane, if we can live up to the
standards which are meant to
protect our citizens, as well as
visitors to our shores in times
of extreme emergency.
Amnesty International
expressed deep concern this
week over reports that victims
of the hurricane that devastated
New Orleans and surrounding
areas were left for days in
increasingly desperate and
unsafe circumstances.
The organisation called on
authorities to urgently deploy
adequate resources to ensure
that all those now evacuated or
who remain in need in the
affected areas are protected
from attacks and are provided
with food, water, adequate shel-
ter and appropriate medical
care.
Noting that many victims
were rendered especially vul-
nerable to the impact of the dis-
aster due to prevailing condi-
tions of poverty, Amnesty Inter-
national further called for a full,
independent 'inquiry into
whether authorities could have
done more to ensure the safety
of the affected population, and
what should be done to facili-
tate their recovery.
In addition to the authorities'
failure to ensure that basic
human rights such as adequate
shelter, water, food and med-
ical attention were provided to


the degree and speed required
in the immediate aftermath of
the disaster, the organisation
noted with concern reports that
thousands left trapped in a con-
vention centre and other loca-
tions were preyed on by armed
gangs, and risked being shot,
knifed or raped.

T he government's duty
to protect includes
securing the city and surround-
ing areas, as well as bringing
the perpetrators of such crimes
to justice. However, Amnesty
International is concerned that
a "shoot-to-kill" policy autho-
rised by Louisiana's governor
and reportedly implemented by
security forces could lead to a
disproportionate and unlawful


use of lethal force.
This may apply, for example,
in the case of unarmed individ-
uals described as "looters",
some of whom may be trying
to seek supplies to survive in
the absence of aid.
Amnesty International urged
that police firearms be deployed
only in response to an immedi-
ate threat of death or serious
injury that cannot be contained
by lesser means, as required by
international standards. All
shootings must be rigorously
and impartially investigated,
with the results made public.
Authorities should also
ensure that all those in custody,
including the thousands of pris-
oners reported to have been
evacuated to other locations,
have access to their families and
attorneys at the earliest oppor-
tunity.
The organisation expressed
its deepest sympathy for the vic-
tims of the tragedy and support
for survivors, relief workers and
others working to provide relief,
health care and other aid.
We should ask ourselves now,
what standards are in place here
in the Bahamas? Can we realis-
tically expect to live up to these
standards and meet the needs
of people while dealing with a
crisis? If these questions are
asked now, and answered now,
then we might reasonably
expect them to be followed in a
time of crisis.

EDUCATION parliamen-
tary secretary and Garden Hills
MP Veronica Owens partnered
with the Bahamas National
Drug Council and the special
services department of the Min-
istry of Education to celebrate
this year's "Back to School Jam-
boree" for the children of her
constituency.
The event was held on Sat-
urday September 3 at the AF
Adderley park in Yellow Elder
Gardens.
This year's jamboree focused
on "worship, prayer for the
children, spiritual motivation
and then entertainment."
Lee Watson, co-pastor of
Trinity Assembly "City of
Praise" and his team prayed for
the children and anointed them
with oil.
Mr Watson said there was
"No superstition in the oil; it
symbolises the protection of
God for those who were prayed
for."
Booths were placed around
the park with pamphlets from


the special services department
stating that parents should con-
tact the department if their child
is repeating one or more grade
levels, failing in most subject
areas, having difficulty with
reading, math and/or spelling,
slow to learn or acquire infor-
mation, not following rules or
instructions, disruptive in the
classroom, violent or aggressive
towards others, displaying odd
or bizarre behaviour, inatten-
tive, hyperactive, or is extreme-
ly withdrawn.
The special services depart-
ment is mandated by the Min-
istry of Education to cater to
the psychological well-being of
Bahamian students.
It employs guidance coun-
selors, speech pathologists, and
other specialists.
"Children will be rewarded
for 'A's that are brought into
the Garden Hill's constituency
office," said Ms Owens.
The children, parents and the
general public in attendance
heard music from the Garden
Hill's band and the Royal
Bahamas Police Force pop
band.

THE TRIBUNE















Bahamians step forward to offer




aid to victims of Hurricane Katrina


FROM page one
Bishop Neil Ellis, Leroy Archer of
Burns House and Minna Israel of
Scotiabank Bahamas.
According to Mr Wilson, the
organisers have not set a target
amount for donations, but believe
Bahamians will display a great deal
of generosity.
The public has been asked to con-
tribute to the effort by participating
in two events: A national prayer ser-
vice on September 22 at Mount
Tabor Full Gospel Baptist Church
and a National Telethon on Septem-
ber 30 at the Independence Ballroom
in the Radisson Resort on Cable
Beach.
The website: www.bahamas-
foramerica.com has also been estab-
lished as part of the effort.
The local branch of McDonalds
has also decided to lend a hand,
announcing that it will donate 50
cents from every hamburger sold in
the month of September.
Local charity groups have risen to
the challenge as well.
Divisional commander of the Sal-
vation Army Major Lester Ferguson
announced last week the launch of a
"fund for gulf coast disaster."
"Thousands of people along the
gulf coast states are desperate for
food, water, clothes and shelter. Hur-
ricane Katrina dealt a deadly blow,"
Major Ferguson said in a statement.
He said that the Salvation Army
decided to launch the fund because
of a "steady stream of phone calls"
from Bahamians who want to know
how they can lend a helping hand.
"This is what it means to be
Bahamian," said the Major. "When
we share the pain of our neighbours
and are willing to lend a helping hand
whether across the street or across
the globe."
Anyone wishing to contribute to
this effort can make a donation to
any branch of the Royal Bank of
Canada, account number 174-498-6.
Persons may also wish to make an
online donation directly to the US
Salvation Army by credit card at
www.salvationarmyusa.org.
Also last week, Bahamas Red
Cross president Gerald Sawyer

announced "an urgent public appeal
to assist the victims devastated by
the onslaught of Hurricane Katri-
na".
"Whenever we have a situation in
the Bahamas, the United States gov-
ernment, many individuals in US cor-
porations immediately come to our
aid. Now is the time for all Bahami-


ans to say thank you in a very special
way," Mr Sawyer said.
The Red Cross is accepting cash
donations marked "Hurricane Kat-
rina Relief" at the John F Kennedy
Drive headquarters, by mail at P 0
Box N-8331, Nassau Bahamas, or at
any branch of the Royal Bank of
Canada, account number 104-835-4.


The Red Cross can be contacted
for more information at 323-7370.
The US Embassy has expressed its
appreciation to Bahamian citizens,
organisations and the government
"for their concern and offers of assis-
tance to the residents of the states
of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi
and Florida who have been affected


by the passage of Hurricane Katri-
na".
Individuals interested in making a
direct donation to US relief efforts
are encouraged to do so through the
American Red Cross, the Bahamas
Red Cross, or by contacting the
Embassy on 323-7370, or at P 0 Box
N-8197, Nassau, Bahamas.


EU grant to benefit



the Family Islands


FROM page one
secretary Helen Ebong) and
senior economist Hugh Chase
announced that six projects
have been identified and sub-
mitted for EU approval.
The projects include building
an eco-tourism training centre
and repairing the Fresh Creek
Dock in Andros; repairing the
Duncan Town Dock and the
airport runway in Ragged
Island; building a new airport
terminal in Cat Island; and
repairing roads and water facil-
ities in Acklins.
Mr Jacquet noted that there
were more than 30 possible sites
studied, but the grant amount
limited what could be done.
The total cost of the six pro-
jects is $12 million. The
Bahamian government is to pay
the balance of $3.6 million.
The chosen projects are
expected to greatly enhance the
quality of life for the islands'
residents by increasing eco-
nomic self sufficiency and
encouraging tourism, said Mr
Miller.
Each site was chosen to go
hand-in-hand with other invest-
ments on the specific Family
Islands, he noted.
For example, the current ter-
minal on Cat Island can only
accommodate 15 persons, lim-
iting the number of flights which


can land at a time. By increasing
the space, larger aircraft can be
accommodated, tying in with a
new hotel expected to be built
on that island.
Mr Miller said that the gov-
ernment will be challenged to
ensure that the projects are ini-
tiated before the end of the
year.
Although government had
received grants in previous
years, the money had never
been utilised in a timely and
efficient manner, he said,
adding that for this reason, the
government is to fund the
designing of the project in an
effort to speed up the imple-
mentation.
Mr Miller said that the
Bahamas ranks with Haiti in
not being able to utilise EU
funds. "Over the years we have
really been neglectful in having
funds allocated to us, and not
using those funds on a timely
basis. Because of that the
(European) Union has really
come down hard on the
Bahamas."
He said government had
secured $600,000 for hurricane
relief last year, but to date the
money had not been utilised.
"There is just this tardiness
in the Bahamas' ability to use
the funds allocated," said Mr
Miller.
He said the funds remained


in a bank account in Europe for
negligent customers. "The
Bahamas is one of the worst
ones, and they (EU) want us to
access the funds because they
know that the Bahamas does not
only consist of New Providence
and Grand Bahama. Some of
those Family Islands are in dire
need of some form of economic
injection to enable them to stand
on their own two feet.
"The next allocation of funds
is due shortly, next year. The
problem we are going to have as
a country is that the funds that
are being allocated, we are now
in the final year and just get-
ting our balances, and so we are
in a race to use the money up
and if it is not used and not allo-
cated properly and geared
toward meeting the December
deadline, those funds will be
taken away.
"The problem is...getting
things done in this country on a
timely basis through the respec-
tive ministries," he said.
One way to alleviate this is
to out source the government's
work to suitable private com-
panies capable of researching,
identifying and preparing the
recommendations, said Mr
Miller.
He said the recent failure to
prepare schools for the new
school year shows that the min-
istries are overburdened.


Crash pilot'


body found


FROM page one
Mr Fenner's children may have
also been passengers of the trag-
ic flight.
"A bag was found inside the
plane with the passports of the
four children, so there was some
concern, some fears," he said.
However, a call to flight ser-
vices in Nassau quickly con-
firmed that there was only one
person onboard the aircraft,
said Mr Lloyd, The four chil-
dren were with family members
in the United States at the time
of the crash, he added,
According to reports, Mr Fen-


ner's aircraft left Nassau Inter-
national Airport around 12.30pm,
experienced mechanical prob-
lems and crashed upon approach-
ing Norman's Cay after 1pm.
."There were people on Nor-
man's Cay awaiting the plane
with a fuel tanker when the
crash occurred," he said.
Mr Lloyd described the crash
as a "severe impact", which was
followed by an explosion.
The wreckage has since been
retrieved from the water.
A team of police officers
from New Providence has also
travelled to Exuma to assist in
further investigations into what


may have caused the crash.
Yesterday, Don Rolle of the
Staniel Cay Yacht Club said
that he had flown in Mr Fen-
ner's plane as a passenger in the
past and as far as he knew, Mr
Fenner was a competent pilot.
Mr Rolle said he saw Mr Fen-
ner last Saturday when he visit-
ed the island, adding that the
American was well-known in
Staniel Cay.
"He was a very energetic fel-
low who had quite a few friends
on Staniel Cay. He used to fly
back and forth to the States and
was over in Florida just last
week," he said.

Senior Sports Reporter
DAVIS Cupper Ryan Sweeting
continued his sensational run through
the junior segment of the US Open,
advancing to the boys' singles semi-
final with another two-set sweep.
Unseeded Sweeting had to rally
from a 4-1 deficit in the first set and 5-
2 in the second yesterday to defeat
the stunned number three seed,
Leonardo Ma7er from Argentina, 6-4,
7-5.
;Speaking from the tournament in
Pushing Meadows, New'York where
he waited to see who his opponent
will be in today's semi-final, Sweeting
said he was thrilled to have "pulled
through and I'm looking forward to
doing it again."
Having to dig down deep to come
back in both sets, Sweeting said he
told himself: "The door is open. This
is. where it, all happens. I had to dig
deep and I told myself every point
counted. It ain't over until it's over. I
came out winning both sets and so
I'm feeling real great."
Sweetingi, aked,,,No 21 in the.


world going into the tournament, will
go on to play Kim Sun-Yong of Korea
instead of the world's best junior play-
er, American Donald Young.
Sun-Yong upset the top seeded
Young, a native of New York, in three
hard-fought sets 6-7 (1), 6-2, 7-5.
For Sweeting, while he would have
preferred to face Young, he feel that
Sun-Yong will be just as tough to beat
because "he's the number three play-
er in the world."
Sweeting also teamed up with
Grand Bahamian-born Timothy Neil-
ly, who is playing under the American
flag. The duo played in the boys' dou-
bles where they reached the quarter-
final, losing in a tie-breaker in thea
third set to Petar Jelenic of Croatia
and Evgenviy Kirillov of Russia.
Sweeting said it was "great getting
back on the court with Tim. We were
able to do our thing. We lost, but we
had a lot of fun playing out there."
Itwas the first time in a major tour-
nament that Sweeting and Neilly had
played together, but they were in
some other tournaments.
Bahamas Lawn Tennis Associa-
tion's president. Mary, Shelley.sung


the praises of Sweeting and Neilly.
But she was thrilled to see how well
Sweeting performed so far in singles.
Shelley said: "I could just not be
happier for Bahamian tennis. To have
a Davis Cup player bringing up the
level of his tennis when.he had to at
the US Open playing against the top
juniors in the world is an amazing
feat.
"I had tears in my eyes when I went
on the internet and saw his results.
Many people have told me that they
have been watching it on the inter-
net and I've been telling them that
I'm watching it too."
Shelley was even more thrilled to
see Sweeting and Neilly team up to
play in the boys' doubles together.
Although they lost in the second
round, Shelley said the New Provi-
dence and Grand Bahama combo.
made her "feel proud about the future
of Bahamian tennis.
"I don't know, with the politics
involved, when Timothy will be able
to come back, but to have him, Ryan,
Devin Mullings and Marvin Rolle
playing (Davis Cup) together, it will
be.just fantastic."

Brown makes third place



finish in Monaco final


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter,
CHRIS Brown was just shy of his per-
sonal best, turning in the best performance
of the four Bahamians who competed on
the first day of the 3rd IAAF World Ath-
letics Final in Monaco yesterday.
The first of the Bahamians to compete,
Brown clocked 44.68 seconds for a third
place finish in the men's 400 metres, mov-
ing up from his. fourth place at the 10th
IAAF World Championships in Helsinki,
Finland where he was fourth.
In the process, Brown earned $12,000
for his efforts.
American Tyree Washington ran a sea-
son's best of 44.51 to win the race that
turned out to be a real shocker for
Olympic and World champion Jeremy
Wariner.
The American had to settle for last
place in a disappointing 46.37 as he came
through the final 15 metres with his hand
on his left hip. Wariner led through the
first 200 and came off the final bend in
front of the pack.
Great Britain's Timothy Benjamin post-
ed a personal best of 44.56 for second.
Also on the track, world leader Chan-
dra Sturrup raced to a fourth place finish


in the women's 100m in 11.07 behind the
same three women who came from
behind and denied her a medal at the
World Championships.
Only this time, Jamaic an Veronica
Campbell surged back down down the
stretch and barely missed tIrenchwoman
Christine Aaron to pull off the title.
Silver medallist Campbell ran faster
than American Lauryn Williams' winning
time of 10.93 to take the straightaway
race in 10.92, leaving brotize medalist
Aaron in second with a sezqson's best of
10.93. Williams ended up in third in 11.04.
While Campbell pocketed $30,000 for
her victory, Aaron got $20,000, Williams
$12,000 and Sturrup collected a purse of
$7,000.
Triple jump

On the field, Leevan 'Superman' Sands
skipped, hoped and jumped 55-feet, 6 1/2-
inches on the last of four jiimps in the
men's triple jump for fifth place as he
picked up $5,000. His only 'other legal
mark was 55-4 1/4 on his first; attempt.
Cuban Yoandri Betanzos, the World
Championships' silver medalist, won the
event with a season's best of 57-3 1/2 on


his last jump as well.
Brazil's Jadel Gregorio came in second
with 57-10 and World champion Walter
Davis from the United States got third
with 56-10. Russian Danila Burkenya was
third with a season's best of 56-1 1/4.
And in the women's javelin, Lavern
Eve improved on her 10th place finish at
the World's by taking fourth place with a
season's best of 203-3 for $7,000.
Cuban world record holder Osleiidys
Menendez added the championship
record to her Olympic and World Cham-
pionship feat with her final toss of 220-7 to
earn another $30,000.
World Championship silver medalist
Steffi Nerius from Germany threw 217-8
1/4 for another second and $20,000. Cuban
Sonia Bisset got third with 208-6 for
$12,000.
Today, the final two Bahamians,
Tonique Williams-Darling and Christine
Amertil will go head-to-head with Amer-
ican Sanya Richards.
Williams-Darling, the-Olympic and
World champion, will be out to redem
the two consecutive losses she suffered
to Richards after Helsinki.
Mexican Ana Guevara, another arch-
rival, opted not to compete in the sea-
son-ending meet.

Heat'


17 batters


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
STILL on a high from his perfor-
mance at the Central American and
Caribbean qualifying tournament, ace
Edney "The Heat" Bethel was on fire
as the New Providence Softball Asso-
ciation playoffs got underway.
On Thursday night at the Churchill
Tener Knowles National Softball Sta-
dium, Bethel struck out 17 batters in a
no-hitter to lead the pennant-winning
Electro Telecom Dorcy Park Boyz to
a 4-0 shutout over the fourth-place
Nassau Cruisers Stingrays for a 1-0
lead.
In his first game since the national
team returned from Cartagena,
Colombia, Bethel said "coming off a
tournament like that, it just made me
stronger and better, so they are going
to be in a lot of trouble."
The Cruisers had trouble trying to
find a way to cool off the red-hot
Bethel. But they couldn't do anything
as he hit a Cruisers' batter twice,
walked one and watched as another
got on by an error to spoil his perfect
game.
But once his team got the four runs
off Cruisers' starter and loser Rudolph
'Vida Blue' Williams, Bethel knew
that the game was over.
"Four runs is a lot of runs for a
pitcher like me on a good night like
tonight," Bethel claimed. "We just
came out here and just started where
we left off."
Baseman
After second baseman Andy
'Smudge' Ford led with a triple and
scored on a wild pitch, Bethel fol-
lowed with a solo home run over the
left field fence and Sigmund 'Gun-
man' Bethel and Demont Charlow
both came home on consecutive errors
to break the game open.


The Cruisers started Rudy Williams,
but the veteran was replaced by Crest-
well 'the Bomber' Pratt after he gave
up the four runs.
Bethel, however, said. they took
advantage of the Cruiisers' decision
because "you never know how the
game would turn out 'with Crestwell
starting."
Batters
Once Pratt came in, he struck out
the final two batters 4nd ended up in
a pitcher's duel with Bethel. While
Bethel did not give up a hit, Pratt sur-
rendered two the rest of the way and
ended up with nine-s.trike outs.
Pratt, who started, at first base, said
he was "looking to get the start, but
they decided to go with Rudy
Williams. I think if 1[ had started, the
outcome would have been a little dif-
ferent."
Edney Bethel and Sigmund Bethel
both went 2-for-3, scoring a run each.
Both had a double as they led the
offensive attack for the Dorcy Park
Boyz.
Right fielder Kahlil Curry was hit
'twice with a pitch from Bethel before
he struck out for Nassau Cruisers.
Darren Rogers and Pratt were the
only two other batters to get on base
with an error and walk respectively.
As they look ahead to give two on
Tuesday night, Betlhel said: "Once we
can get in a practice, we will be back
and I will be on the mound as sharp as
a razor."

Bommers come back for


victo


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THE Degeo Bommers rallied for four big
runs on four hits in the bottom of the sixth inning
to come back for a 7-6 victory over the DHL
Brackettes.
The second-place Bommers took the 1-0 upper
hand in their New Providence Softball Associa-
tion ladies' best-of-five playoffs on Thursday
night at the Churchill Tener Knowles National
Softball Stadium against the third-place Brack-
ettes.
"It was a big comeback because we struggled
at the beginning of the game," said Degeo's cen-
tre fielder Christine Hanna, who scored the
game's winning run.
"We're a team that can do it, once we get our
hits. We're a big team. Big teams come around."
Trailing 6-3 going into the sixth, the Bom-
mers managed to get around DHL's ace Ernes-
tine Stubbs as they came up with four hits, one
more than the three they had in the previous
five innings combined.
The big blow came from shortstop Christine
Cooper, who drilled a one-out single to plate
lead-off batter Denise Sears. But after she
reached second on an error, she and Rosemary
Greene, who singled, both scored on an error off
the bat of Hanna.
Hanna, who eventually moved up to second on
the error and stole third, scooted home on Dawn
Forbes' run-producing single to give the Bom-
mers the lead for good.
Although she struck out in her first two at-
bats, Hanna got to'first on a fielder's choice and

NPSA PLAYOFFS

scored in a two-run fifth before she came in with
the game's winner in the sixth.
Dawn Sears led the offensive attack for the
Bommers with a 2-for-3 night, scoring twice,,
and Jenny Dotson went 2-for-4. Cooper also
helped out with a 1-for-3 production with a RBI
and two runs scored.
Marvel Miller surrendered four hits, striking
out six for the win, while Stubbs suffered the
loss on seven hits with just four strike-outs.
Despite scoring four unearned runs in the top
of the first inning, the Brackettes were unable to
hold off the Bommers as they dropped the open-
er of the series.
Looking back at their downfall, Stubbs said:
"We played a tremendous game here tonight
and I know I pitched well. We just fell bad in one
.inning, and that was the inning that they capi-
talised on our mistakes."
Mistakes came on their fielding and base run-
ning.
Zella Symonette, who started at third but was
moved to shortstop, had a single with three
walks, driving in a run and scoring just once to
lead the way in the loss.
As they look ahead to game two on Tuesday
night, Hanna said as long as the Bommers "can
come out hitting, we can beat them again."
But Stubbs said that the Bommers would see
a different Brackettes on Tuesday: "We will
capitalise on the mistakes that we made and
come back and win the game."
