THE father of a baby girl
whose grave, was desecrated
earlier this week said he feels
that it could have beenia'a"hate
In an exclusive interview with
The Tribune yesterday, the
father said that, while he is not
ruling out a cult ritual as a pos-
sible motive, he feels the dese-
cration was more personally
"I'm not ruling out that it was
a hate crime because if someone
could do this to my little girl
who died, imagine what they
could do to someone who is liv-
ing," said 26-year-old Elliott
Brooks, father of the dead
infant, Ellytta Brooks.
"It just tore me up inside that
someone would do something
like that," Mr Brooks said.
"I know I had a lot of falling
outs with a lot of people this
year but I would never do that
to even my enemies.
"Even if it was a hate crime I
can't see who could actually
hate me that much that they
would resort to doing some-
thing like that to a little child,"
Mr Brooks said.
"If it was cult-related, then
why our child? Our child was
not the only child who died in
the ward that day nor the only
child who was buried that day,"
added Mr Brooks.
The baby was stillborn on
September 8 "because, accord-
ing to doctors, her umbilical
cord became wrapped around
her neck twice."
-Mr Brooks said he had not
yet told his wife about the grave
incident because he fears she
may commit suicide.
He said his wife is staying
with relatives who have been
instructed to keep the informa-
tion away from her.
"A lot of people think that
me not telling her may be dis-
honest, but I feel as though she
is not ready for that," Mr
So far, there are no develop-
ments in the case. The body is
still being examined and Mr
Brooks said that once police
have returned his daughter's
body, she will again receive a
A local Catholic official said
yesterday he would not rule out
cult involvement in the dese-
cration of the grave.
"Acts such as this have been
connected with cult worship but
we still don't know who did it
and we don't want to specu-
late," Monsignor Alfred Cul-
mer, chancellor of the archdio-
cese of Nassau, told The Tri-

claiming that contract workers
were performing jobs outside

marched in the power station
The BEWU claimed that
contract workers were per-
forming jobs Bahamians can do.
SStephano Greene, the union's
secretary general, said the work-
ers were contracted by BEC to
overhaul and perform general
repairs on generator number
seven at the power station.
However, the union has
learnt that an additional con-
tract has been given for minor
repairs on generator number
"Our members never run
from work. This is a demon-
stration to let the government
know that our members are fed
up with BEC and the way they
treat our union members.
"We demand an investigation
into BEC and the way they are
treating our members," he said.
Mr Greene said the union
had a "grave concern" about
illegal immigrant contract work-
ers at the power station.

They claim academic standards at Lowe Sound
Primary School have plummeted since the

"From being one of the best schools in Andros,
it is now one of the worst," said Ms Coralee
Campbell, who is among campaigners calling for
a change at the top.
This week, parents gathered outside the school

Ms Campbell said: "We are not comfortable
about the way the school is being run. This year
we were able to send only four students into the

SEPTEMBER 11,1972 -Members of the Royal Bahamas Police Force went to the polls at the East Street Barracks in the police mobile
division recreation room in Trip Circle, Freeport, to cast their ballots in the general elections. The police, as is customary, voted early so
as to be free for election duty on September 19 of that year.

GLOBAL warming may not
be the sole cause of the increased
number of hurricanes in recent
In a CNN news report yester-
day, experts said the recent string
of intense storms is a part of the
climate's normal cycle.
According to CNN's website,
Max Mayfield, director of the
National Hurricane Centre in
Miami, told a US Senate sub-
committee that "we're in a peri-
od of heightened hurricane activ-
ity that could last another decade
"The increased activity since
1995 is due to natural fluctua-
tions (and) cycles of hurricane
activity driven by the Atlantic
Ocean itself along with the
atmosphere above it and not
enhanced substantially by global
warming," he testified.
Mayfield's colleague at the
National Hurricane Centre,
meteorologist Chris Landsea said
two recent studies about global
warming and hurricanes raise
more questions than they
He added that the impact of
global warming is "minimal for
the foreseeable future."
Landsea said the studies indi-
cate global warming could
increase hurricane wind speeds
and rainfall by about 5 per cent
100 years from now.
He added however that more
study is needed.
William Gray, a Colorado
State University hurricane pre-
dictor, said that "this year you
can just say nature is averaging
out its climatology."
According to Gray, hurricanes
are driven by cycles of rising
water temperature and salinity
that affect the speed of currents
in the Atlantic.
He explained that the techni-
cal name for the engine driving
the hurricane cycles is the
tion, or AMO, which can cause
droughts in the west and create
hurricanes in the east.
According to Hugh Willough-
by, a hurricane researcher at
Florida International Universi-
ty in Miami, "This cycle has been
repeating back to the Ice Age."
"It's related to changes in the
ocean currents that move heat
northward," he said. "If it's fast,
we get a lot of hurricanes."
"We're just entering a busy
time here," said. Meteorologist
Chris Lauer said: "You see a few
decades of slower activity, fol-
lowed by a few decades of high-
er oscillation. Our position in the
recent increase in hurricane
activity is not caused by global
However, one scientist dis-
agreed with the others. Brenda
Ekwurzel, climate scientist of the
Union of Concerned Scientist's
National Climate Education Pro-
gramme, told CNN that while
global warming might not be
causing hurricanes, it is already
making them more intense.
"We would never point to a
single weather event and blame
global warming," she said.
"While hurricanes have bedev-
iled the gulf coast region for
years, global warming is making
Speaking to The Tribune yes-
terday, Chief Meteorologist in,
the Bahamas Basil Dean agreed
that "it is cyclically a part of
nature for there to be an increase
in the number of hurricanes."
"To some extent, if you look
at it statistically, we do have dif-
ferent cycles when it comes to
hurricanes. During one period
we can have more, and one peri-
od we can have less," he said.
Mr Dean did not however rule
out the effects of global warming.
"Global warming does play a
part, but we cannot totally blame
global warming," he said.

Storm system 'may
develop next week'
* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
ANOTHER tropical storm
system may develop near the
Bahamas by the middle of next
week as this year's unusual hur-
ricane season continues.
Following the pattern that has
emerged this season, a tropical
wave is once again moving
towards the Bahamas and is
expected to strengthen into the
next tropical storm.
Forecasters say they have yet
to determine the exact reason
for the high number of massive
storms forming so close to the
Florida coast and near the
Bahamas this season.
At press time last nightfore-
casters were closely watching a
system brewing some 500 miles
south of Bermuda.
Chief Meteorology Officer
Basil Dean told The Tribune that
although it is still too early to
predict how this latest wave will
affect the Bahamas, the system
"Right now we can't tell yet
if it could hurt us or not," he said.
Tensions are high in the region
as the. last two storm systems to
develop in Bahamian waters
have led to very strong hurri-
"What has happened this year
is very unusual. We've had many
of the stronger storms, and now
the last two major hurricanes,
develop right near or over us,"
Mr Dean said that although
high temperatures and resulting
warm waters around the
Bahamas are contributing to the
development of hurricanes, it is
yet unclear why this region has
been such a hotbed for storms
"This situation warrants
research. From a forecasters
standpoint there is nothing we
can directly put our finger on as
to why so many storms are form-
ing close to us this season," he
Hurricane Katrina, which dev-
astated New Orleans, and Hur-
ricane Rita, which last night was
threatening the gulf coast, both
developed close to the Bahamas.
Hurricane Ophelia and tropi-
cal storms Franklin, Harvey and
Nate also formed near the
Bahamas or Bermuda.
Chris Sisko, meteorologist at
the National Hurricane Centre in
Miami, told US media that usu-
ally, storms come from West
"That hasn't been the case this'
year," he said adding that only_
two storms Alex and Gaston
- formed so close to the coast
However, Mr Dean said that
although it is unfortunate for the
United States, the recent pattern
of storm development means for
the Bahamas that storm systems
do not have sufficient time to
strengthen enough to signifi-
cantly impact our islands.
"This fact lets me relax some-
what, although a very active hur-
ricane season was predicted we
have not yet been at the receiv-
ing end of it," he said.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
WHILE Hurricane Katrina was
in the process of devastating the gulf
coast of the United States, a pleasant
impression of Bahamians and the
Bahamas was being left in the mem-
ories of an American couple.
Pam Colarusso, a Senior Chan-
nel Sales Specialist, and her hus-
band landed in Grand Bahama
when they were headed to Atlantis,
Paradise Island, Nassau.
They wrote of their experience
two weeks ago vowing that because
of it they will continue to visit the
Bahamas again and again.
Here is Mr And Mrs Colarusso's
account of their experience.
I write to you today to say,
Thank you to the people of Freeport
and Nassau, Bahamas.
My husband and I have just
returned from a vacation in The
Freeport was not our vacation
destination, but due to a poor geo-
graphic understanding on my part,
we found ourselves at the Freeport:
Airport Wednesday, August 24,
2005. When asked by the Customs
Agent where we were staying, we
replied, "The Atlantis Resort." The
kind Customs Officer was quick to
let us know that we had made a mis-
take and we were, in fact, 100 miles
from our desired destination.
He gave us directions on where
to go and the approximate cost it
would be to fly over to Nassau. He
also let us know there was a storm
coming that may prevent us from
travelling to Nassau today. He was
very polite and was sure to let us
know that Freeport would be a
FINE place to spend the night.
We were determined to reach
Nassau and mide our. yay. tzihe
Domestic terniia tio seek'out"th '
next flight to Nassau. Bahamasair
did not have a flight leaving until
7.30 p.m. We then turned to West-
ern Air to see if they had an earlier
flight. Their next flight was sched-
utiled to depart at 5.00 p.m. Only
three hours from now versus 5 1/2.
Western Air had won our business.
We moved to the outside of the
airport to wait for our flight. As we
sat, we saw the good people of
Freeport coming and going, always
smiling and saying, "Hello" and
"How are you?" I thought this a
little odd since, being from the Unit-
ed States, people there just don't do
that and if they did, you'd think
they were about to rob you!
For the next hour, we sat, frus-
trated by our own mistake but,
thanks to the people of Freeport we
smiled more often than frowned
while we waited for our plane to
It was 3.00 p.m. when Harvey
from Western Air had the sad task
of telling us that the airport was clos-
ing due to the storm they called Kat-
rina. The earliest we would be able
to leave would be tomorrow.
After going through a series of
semotions, we resigned ourselves to
the fact that we would have to stay
in Freeport for the night. We asked
Harvey if there was a hotel nearby.
Immediately, his supervisor, Tonel,
who is the Regional Manager of
Operations for Western Air pointed
out a hotel just down the road and
then proceeded to ask Harvey to
drop me there on his way home.
I thought, "These people are so
nice WOW." I then asked if
there was a casino in Freeport (to
help pass the time until we could
get to Nassau). Again, Tonel was
quick to let us know about the casi-
no just 15 minutes away and offered
to come by the hotel and pick us up
and take us there since she herself
was staying at the hotel next to the
Again WOW the kindness
shown to us just kept going. As
promised, Tonel came by our hotel
about 30 minutes after our arrival
and took us to the casino. We
thanked her profusely for her kind-
ness and we parted ways.
After having gambled in the casi-
no for an hour or so, my husband
and I thought we should.have dinner
and ventured across the street to a
little cafe for dinner. We sat outside,
prepared to endure Whatever weath-
er would come our way.
As we waited for our dinner, we
saw Tonel and a co-worker walk by
and into the restaurant where we
were dining. I told my husband we
should invite them to join us. I went
inside and asked for their compa-
...They seemed alltoo happystoijoin
us. Tonel introduced us to Ali, a'
pilot for Western Air. We had a
lovely meal and enjoyed the com-
pany of two of your fine Bahamian
citizens (both are from Nassau), and
we parted company once more.
Thursday, 8/25 my husband
and I were anxiously awaiting the
opening of the Freeport Airport to
continue on to our final destination
We called at 7.00 a.m. only to
learn that the airport was still closed
in Freeport (open in Nassau) and
to call back at 12.00 for an
update. We took a taxi back to the
casino (all Freeport taxi drivers are
courteous and friendly).
We walked to the shops across
from the casino that were now
closed due to the storm. We called
Western Air in Nassau to get an
update on the Freeport Airport sit-
uation the airport was still closed
but, we should call back at 3.00 for
Just as we hung up the phone, a
passerby had heard us talking and
asked about the airport situation.
We gave him our information, only
to learn that he too, worked for
He was very kind (we were dis-
appointed we didn't get his name)
and told us to try to make the best of
it and perhaps tomorrow the airport
would be open. We made the best of
our evening in Freeport eyery-
one, from taxi drivers to wait staff in
restaurants to casino personnel nd
hotel staff, were MAGNIFICENT!
Friday morning ALAS, we
are able to fly to Nassau THE
AIRPORT IS OPEN! Very excit-
ed, we ask our hotel staff to request
a taxi to take us to the airport. But at
5.30 a.m. there are not a lot of taxis
on the road no one is answering
their phone. ... ;,,
In true Freeport-hospitality,-the
'hotel staffer offers to take us'to the
airport himself. Just before he could,
a taxi pulls up and takes us there.,
Many, many thanks to the hotel staff
of the Royal Palms Hotel & Resdrt'
-for their kindness and support dur-
ing this little airport mishap.
We reach the airport and see&our'
friends, Tonel and Harvey, closely'
followed by Ali, the pilot. Minutes.,
later, the man who asked us for an
update on the weather the'dayl
before walks in he too is apil6...
I thanked Tonel and Harvey for,
their kindness and headed for' th-'
gate where we are escorted by iar:,
vey out to the small 10 or 12,seatt
plane. We shook Harvey's hand and:
thanked him once again.
As we enter the plane, I see-q our
pilots are Ali and the other gentle.;
man we met the day before. I could!
not feel more comforted or happier
to have these two men flying s to
Nassau. I felt like family and knew;
they would do the very best to get
their 'family' to where theywbeir-
going, safely. -
The flight was brilliant. Ouirpil6ts
were professional and courteoust;
Ali, in true gentleman's fashion,;
helped this lady down the steps of
the small plane. I was proud to.
shake his hand to thank him and;
say, "Good-bye." ,'
A quick taxi ride from N1ss.au;
Airport to the Atlantis Resort,:
where we were again greeted by,
friendly*Bahamians. Our Guest Ser-,
vices Rep Nolan iad the sad task of,
infornfing us that our hotel resesr-'
vation had been cancelled since y.~e
did not arrive two days earlir/.Hfe
saw the disappointment on my fa4e
and said, "Why don't you gohaiye
some breakfast and I'll see vyha I'
can do." Feeling completely draiield,'
we agreed. '
About 3/4 of an hour latefr,we
return to the front desk where Nolhi

* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
I agree with a writer that
the Bahamas government is
responsible for the illegal
immigration situation. I
came here legally as a child
in ,the 1960's. I had to get a
permit even to go to school
and reside with my parents.
The law was: Any child
born in the Bahamas of ille-
gal parents was the nation-
ality of their parents and
NOT BAHAMIAN. The
Defence Force boats are
always out of commission
and not patrolling consis-
tently. There are persons
helping in smuggling, selling
passports, birth certificates,
work permits and maybe
even citizenship. Better
background checks on
Haitians and others need to
be done because of the vio-
lence in their country.
There was blatant failure
to charge employers of ille-
gal persons. That's where
money is gotten to pay rent
and send back to their
homeland. There is now a
plan going on where
employers who are charged,
have to pay an institution
such as Children's Emer-
gency Hostel, etc. Those
persons charged should also
pay for repatriation. Tax
dollars should not be done
Selling citizenship votes is
selling your country. The
next Bahamian generation
is soon being outnumbered!
There is a thing called
MERCY, but when a
NATION'S sovereignty is
under threat of being under
siege the government must
eradicate corruption, under-
handed dealings and do
things decently, and in
order, according to the
"I vex with these gas com-
panies and the ridiculous
price of fuel. I am also vex
with the government
because although Mr Miller
says the government tax
can't be changed, I think
that if they stop living high
on the hog and focused on
other revenue collections
then it might be possible to
bring the gas tax down and
collect the money some-
Where else, where it don't

I also think that the gas

Mitchell calls for reform
to help smaller states
* By KARAN MINNIS
THE present structures of
global governance must be
reformed to allow smaller voices
to be heard, Foreign Affairs Min-
ister Fred Mitchell told the Unit-
Speaking at the 60th session of
the UN General Assembly, Mr
Mitchell called for member states
to help ensure that international
decision making bodies operate
Minister of Foreign Affairs at the UN
"It would be nearly impossi-
ble, for small states in particular,
to sustain any meaningful gains
from the process of globalisation
without a voice and participation
in international decision making
and norm setting bodies," he said.
"It is for this reason that the
VIEWING platforms will allow nature enthusiasts to
observe local wildlife from a whole new prospective.
Cheque to help put police
reserves in driving seat
COMMONWEALTH Bank has hit another high note with the
Royal Bahamas Police Reserves, answering their call to help pur-
chase a 37-seater passenger bus.
The reserves need the bus to accommodate their choir, drill teams,
and marching band.
Officer-in-charge of the reserves Superintendent Richard Gardiner
says the reserves need transportation in order to meet the demands
of their outreach programmes in the community.
He said that the newly established Reserves Band has gained
popularity but has been unable to commit to performances because
it had no way of reaching venues.
Charles Knowles, IT vice president of Commonwealth Bank, pre-
sented a cheque in aid of the bus fund to the reserves on Wednesday.
"The reserves who will be using the bus are elated and happy to
know that corporate citizens appreciate them enough to
make a donation towards assisting their request," said Supt
"The donation comes at a time when it is needed and we ask oth-
er companies to follow Commonwealth Bank in making donations,"
he added. "In the end, not only the reserves and police department
will benefit, but also the Bahamian public and visitors alike."
Commonwealth Bank is the largest publicly-held company in the
Bahamas and supports a wide range of community efforts.

Bahamas is encouraged by the
discussions during the High-level
Dialogue on Financing for Devel-
opment held earlier this year,"
said the minister.
Mr Mitchell explained that
those discussions had confirmed
that there is a place for the UN in
all aspects of global standard set-
ting and assessment.
"Dialogue clearly demonstrat-
ed that there is a need to address
the democratic deficit in many of
the international economic, finan-
cial and trade institutions," he
told the delegates.
"At this podium last year, the
Bahamas called for the convening
of a global forum to address the
unfairness of unelected bodies
imposing mandates that are
unfunded upon developing
economies like ours in the region,
and without our countries having
an opportunity to be heard and to
influence the result."
"We make the call once again
for that forum, and pledge that
the Bahamas will continue to
work toward levelling the play-
ing field, particularly in the finan-
cial services sector," Mr Mitchell
Bank donation is only
natural for National Trust
THE National Trust's dream of an interactive
natural park in the heart of New Providence is
closer to becoming a reality thanks to a generous
donation by Commonwealth Bank.
The park, located near Harrold Road, is envi-
sioned to include nature .trails, boardwalks over
mangroves and wetlands, a small nature centre
and an attractive viewing platform.
"National parks have long been a component
of the Bahamian landscape, yet they were located
away from the highest concentration of citizens
and the epicentres of the tourism industry," said
Chris Hamilton, executive director of the Trust.
In 2002, the Trust acquired 250 acres just off
Harrold Road in the heart of Nassau and sought
donations to help make the part a reality.
"This new park, Harrold and Wilson Ponds-
National Park (HWPNP) is close to the majority of
the Bahamas' population and close to tourist areas.
As such, it has unlimited potential for education,
eco-tourism and for quiet recreation," Hamilton
He said the park, with its vast acreage of wetlands
to attract birdlife, broad-leafed woodlands, stands
of pine and mangrove swamps, will be a natural
oasis minutes from a thoroughfare travelled by
thousands of motorists every day.
The Harrold and Wilson Pond area was desig-
nated an Important Bird Area in 2002, after being
declared a national park.
The ponds support 102 species of birds and are
the roosting area for large numbers of herons,
egrets and cormorants.
Immediate plans call for protection of wildlife
and its habitat, the development of public viewing
and education areas, and opportunities for recre-
ational activities in one of the island's last intact nat-
Plans call for hiring a park warden/educator,
creating a local site support group, working with
Tourism officials to develop bird-watching as an
eco-tourism attractions and the installation of the
nature centre, boardwalks, interpretive signs, view-
ing station, parking lot, composting areas and more.
The park is part of a system of some 25 parks
covering 700,000 acres in the Bahamas managed by
"This gift is very heartening and it shows that
Commonwealth Bank cares," Hamilton said.
"We are proud and honoured to support the
development of a national park located near a busy
population centre where working people, the elder-
ly and children of all ages can come to enjoy nature,
to escape stress, feel rejuvenated and experience the
true, pristine beauty of the Bahamas," said Carole
Strachan, vice president of audits and inspections at

licly-held company, supports a wide range of com-
munity efforts. -.

* JESSICA Robertson with general manager Tanya Finlayson-Tynes.
PYRAMID Marketing announced that Jessica
Robertson has joined its management and cre-
The new addition to the team comes as the
eight-year-old full-service advertising, market-
ing and public relations firm undergoes a corpo-
rate restructuring exercise.
Since its launch in 1997, Pyramid Marketing
has served primarily as an in-house agency for
Associated Bahamian Distillers and Brewers Lim-
ited's members and products.
These include the Bums House Group of Com-
panies and Solomon's Mines.
To date, the company has operated within the
Burns House Group corporate structure; how-
ever effective Thursday, September 15, Pyramid
Marketing is operating as an independent entity.
According to general manager Tanya Fin-
layson-Tynes, the change in structure enables the
company to seek a more diverse client base while
providing top level service and solutions for its
"This is the direction we have envisioned Pyra-
mid moving in for quite some time, and now that
we have realised this goal, we have the team in
place t6 make it work. Our copy writers, design-
ers and account executives are some of the best
the industry has to offer and we are confident in
our ability to provide the highest level of service
to our clients," she said.
Robertson has five years experience in Bahami-
an advertising, marketing and public relations,
as well as vast experience in the local media.
She currently serves as news director on Joy
FM, and has worked for a number of other local
and international news organisations including
the BBC World Service, the Associated Press,
ZNS and The Tribune.
Her responsibilities at Pyramid Marketing
include general management, client services and
new business development.
Pyramid Marketing Services, located on St
Alban's Drive, is a full service advertising, mar-
keting, design and public relations firm.
Following the re-structuring exercise, Pyramid
Marketing remains a part of Associated
Bahamian Distillers And Brewers Limited
