Move could be

defence against

anti-government

allegations


* By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
A FRESH round of rumours
surfaced yesterday that Prime
Minister Perry Christie is plan-
ning to shuffle his Cabinet
before the House of Assembly
reconvenes on Wednesday.
Rumours of such a move
have surfaced before. The last
speculation included a predic-
tion that Mr Christie would
rearrange ministerial portfolios
by September 1.
According to some sources,
the alleged move is a preemp-
tive defence against a string of
allegations expected to be lev-
elled against government when
the House sits again. Sources
claim that former prime minis-
ter Hubert Ingraham, who was
on Thursday night elected
leader of the opposition in the
House, is poised to "ridicule" a
number.of ministers when par-
liament reconvenes from its
summer recess on Wednesday.
However, according to reli-
able sources within the FNM,
Mr Ingraham "will not drop any
bombshells" and will not be the
leader of the opposition in the
House when it reconvenes next
week. .
It is understood that Alvin
Smith and Brent Symonette will
appear in their current positions
as opposition leader and leader
of opposition business in the
House, respectively.
Both government and oppo-
sition MPs acknowledged the
rumblings of an approaching


Cabinet shuffle yesterday.
According to unconfirmed
reports, Minister of Immigra-
tion and Labour Vincent Peet
will be transferred to Financial
Services. Shane Gibson may be
moved from Housing and
National Insurance to Immi-
gration, and Allysoin Maynard-
Gibson will be transferred from
Financial Services and Invest-
ments to take on the post of
Attorney General. However,
there is another report that
financial services will be
absorbed by the Ministry of
Finance.
Alfred Sears is expected to
remain ,as Minister of Educa-
tion, and Melanie Griffin will
reportedly be given the Min-
istry of Housing along with
Social Services.
Dr Marcus Bethel is expected
to head National Insurance and
V Alfred Gray's portfolio will
reportedly include Local Gov-
ernment, mailboats and post
offices. He will be relieved of
his agriculture and fisheries
portfolio, which will be taken
over by Leslie Miller, the cur-
rent minister of trade and indus-
try.
Fred Mitchell is expected to
remain as Minister of Foreign
Affairs but will also take on the
responsibility for international
trade, which would include such
foreign matters as FTAA,
CSME, LNG and PetroCaribe.
The controversial natural gas
and PetroCaribe proposals are

FNM backs Ingraham


* A SUPPORTER of Hubert Ingraham and Brent Symonette shows her colours


* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
THE FNM council's vote that pro-
pelled Hubert Ingraham to opposition
leader in the House was the first in a
series of carefully planned moves to rein-
state the former prime minister as FNM
leader, Mr Ingraham's supporters on the
council told The Tribune yesterday.


Thursday night's vote was seen by
some as a vote of no confidence in Tom-
my Turnquest, and the first event
designed to force the party leader to
resign.
"In the upcoming weeks you will be
hearing more and more from Mr Ingra-
ham and less from Tommy," predicted
one council member. "Now Mr Ingra-
ham will be able to operate without the


fear that he is overshadowing Mr (Alvin)
Smith or Tommy Turnquest when he
speaks in the House."
The official tally at the end of the night
was 88 in favour and 40 against Mr Ingra-
ham becoming leader of the opposition.
Up to press time yesterday, Mr Smith
had not informed Prime Minister Perry

IN the wake of America's
worst natural disaster, Bank of
the Bahamas International has
joined a major Hurricane Kat-
rina fundraising initiative.
The bank is one of several
major sponsors and organisers
behind the Bahamas for Amer-
ica's Hurricane Katrina Relief
Fund, which organisers expect
to be the greatest fundraising
drive ever held in the Bahamas
to aid victims in another coun-
try.
Among the co-sponsors of
the fund are businessman
Franklyn Wilson, religious
leader Bishop Neil Ellis, Bank
of the Bahamas chairman
Alfred Jarrett and Jones Com-
munications CEO Wendall
Jones.
Nearly every notable musi-
cian in the country donated
time and talent to perform dur-
ing a marathon telethon on Fri-
day night.
Said Mr Jarrett: "Time and
time again, when the Bahamas
was hit by hurricanes, Ameri-
cans of all walks of life came to
our aid. Now, we must come to
theirs.
"Imagine the small child who
is without a parent, the elderly
couple who saved all their lives
for a retirement home and now
cannot even find the block it
was located on.
"There is a need for medi-
cine, ice, water, generators. We


can raise the cash to help and
Bank of the Bahamas is happy
to do their part, but we urge
you as individuals, as business-
es, as humans who care about
others, to reach into your pock-
ets and give generously. Who
knows? Next time, it could be
us."
Franklyn Wilson welcomed
the bank's support and thanked
other banks that donated to the
Fund.
"Bank of The Bahamas was'
our first corporate donor to step
to the plate in terms of contri-
butions," said Mr Wilson. "That
speaks a lot of their willingness,
to help not only the Bahamas'
when they can, but also the
world."
Funds, held by the Bank, will
be audited and routed through
the US Embassy to the Ameri-'.
can Red Cross to specifically
aid the devastated areas affect-'
ed by the hurricane.
Direct donations can be
deposited at any Bank of the
Bahamas Branch to account'
number 1113805. For more

Jitney union




defies ministry




warning to put




out new passes


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
FLASH passes for public jit-
neys are going on sale today -
despite a warning from the Min-
istry of Transportation.
Public Transit Association
president Reuben Rahming said
the organisation will hold to its
mandate to provide better jit-
ney service to the public and
move ahead with the initiative,
towards which they have
already spent personal funds.
"We will honour our word;
we told the public we will offer
these cards, and we will do it,"
he said.
The passes will be available at
an introductory rate of $40, and
will be good for use on all buses
displaying the PTA symbol
every day in October no mat-
ter how many trips the passen-
ger takes each day.
It was reported in yesterday's
Tribune that Transport officials
said while the flash card initia-
tive is to be commended, any
decision that affects public
transportation can only be
made after full ministry
approval and consultation.
Mr Rahming said that last
Wednesday, Transportation
Permanent Secretary Archie-
Nairn held a meeting with PTA
members at the ministry, where
he "read them the Act".
He said Mr Nairn pointed to
Section 24 of the Act in partic-
ular, which stated that each pas-
senger entering a public bus
should pay the fare by deposit-
ing the money into a pay box.
Part six of Section 24 states that
anyone in breech of the regula-
tion shall be guilty of an
offence, punishable by a $150
fine.
Mr Nairn, he said, threatened
to take away the association


President reports official threat

to take away bus franchises


members' bus franchises if they
went ahead with their plans.
Mr Rahming said that if the
ministry wants to take that kind
of action, they could "go ahead"
which would result in about
25 per cent of all public buses
being taken, off the street.
"I ask the ministry, have they
ever seen anyone not paying
their bus fare or not using a fare
box? If they have, then why
have they never called anyone
into their office or prosecuted
anyone?" asked Mr Rahming.
He said that former prime
minister Sir Lynden Pindling
threw the speaker's mace out
of the House of Assembly win-
dow when he felt the system
was wrong and that he should
stand for what he believed.
"They have an airport named
after him today," Mr Rahming
said.
He said that despite numer-
ous attempts to communicate
with the Ministry of Transport,
the PTA has yet to receive a
response from Minister Glenys
Hanna-Martin.
"We have been quiet about
that out of courtesy," he said.
"There is no legitimate part-
nership between us. The only
. time we hear something from
the minister is when something
hits the press."
On Wednesday, the ministry
explained its position on the
flash passes in a press release:
"While this concept is a com-
mendable contribution in its
apparent intent, the ministry
reminds the PTA and other
industry stake holders that all


parties including the Public
Transit Association are cur-
rently involved in a broad exer-
cise aimed at comprehensive
reform of the public trans-
portation system for the benefit
of all concerned."
The PTA responded in a
statement: "We wish the min-
istry to note that the Associa-
tion is familiar with the said reg-
ulations and that we hold the
laws, rules and regulations gov-
erning the public transport
industry in the highest regard.
We also wish to draw attention
to the fact that the subject reg-
ulation since the day of its com-
mencement, August 15, 1985
has neither been considered,
mentioned, regulated or
enforced by the Ministry of
Transport... for 'practical rea-
sons'.
"If the initiative of the flash
pass system is going to be suc-
cessful, it will demand the sup-
port and co-operation of the
Ministry of Transport. While
we are aware of the existence
and legal effect of the fare box
regulation, we are even more
aware of the urgent need to re-
organise and refine the public
transportation system and pro-
vide a better product to the
Bahamian public, which is our
overall objective."
The Tribune attempted to
contact Minister of Transporta-
tion Glenys Hanna-Martin for
comment and was redirected to
Permanent Secretary Archie
Nairn.
Mr Nairn did not return The
Tribune's call up to press time.


Kiwanis club elects its


first woman president


M By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Kiwanis Club of Nas-
sau AM has elected its first
woman president in its 25-year
history.
Janet Georges Brown, a
member of the service-orient-
ed organisation for five years,
officially takes up office as
president today.
"I feel privileged and proud
being selected to serve as pres-
ident, after 24 distinguished
male presidents have paved
the way forward for me," said
Ms Brown.
The historic installation of
Ms Brown will take place on
October 15, and will be over-
seen by lieutenant governor
designate Henry Gibson.
Before attaining the leader-
ship position, Ms Brown said
she underwent two years of
training. She first served as
vice president in 2003 and in
2004 she moved up to presi-
dent-elect.
In April of this year, she was


ratified as president by mem-
bers of the club.
The first woman was admit-
ted into the Kiwanis Club of
Nassau AM in September
1995.
Today, the club has 22
female members.
Ms Brown indicated that
even though she is the first
female president, there are no


gender distinctions in Kiwa-
nis. "I consider myself a
Kiwanian first," she said.
Under the theme: "Forging
partner relations," Ms Brown
aims to encourage team build-
ing and family togetherness
within the Kiwanis family, and
to partner with corporate citi-
zens throughout the Bahamas
to help build better commu-
nities.
Ms Brown encouraged oth-
er women to aim high, telling
them that when they first fail
at something, they must con-
tinue to try until they succeed.
Taking a page from her own
life, she explained that in 2002,
she did not win the seat of vice
president, but tried again in
2003 and was successful.
Ms Brown invited individu-
als who are willing to commit
themselves to building the
community to join her Kiwanis
group.
The Kiwanis Club of Nas-
sau AM meets every Monday
at the Wyndham Nassau
Resort from 7.30pm to 9pm.

Civil service




needs to be





reformed


EDITOR, The Tribune
IN a democracy/free enter-
prise system, an informed, edu-
cated, efficient, pro-active, help-
ful and intelligent civil service is
not a plus it is a necessity.
The Bahamas, for the most part,
has been saddled too long with
a civil service that is antiquated
and quite the opposite to one
having the characteristics and
attributes I enumerated above.
Some of our civil service is
lazy, uninformed, unhelpful,
crude, insulting, and lack char-
acter to say the least. Those
who work in the system care
less whether they provide effi-
cient public service or not -
mediocrity has become endem-
ic and it permeates every facet
of the system. Past governments
knew it. This government
knows it, but not one govern-
ment, to date, has had the guts
to do anything about this mill-
stone around our necks.
Fred Mitchell some months
ago alluded to his government's
intent to embark on some
method of reforms but as soon
as the unions voiced their objec-
tion and disapproval to the plan,
the idea was suddenly dropped
like a hot potato and we haven't
heard anything since. I submit
that the only reason the gov-
ernment tabled its plans for
reform, the same reason other
governments did nothing about
it either votes nothing
else.
The only thing these politi-
cians seem to think about are
their own hides. Votes in the


next general election take
precedence over everything
else.
We cannot continue to allow
ourselves to be held hostage by
this useless grouping. As of
right now we are as low as we
can go in terms of quality public
service and I don't see where it
will get any better soon. All this
money we throw away each
year paying these high salaries
and benefits can, no doubt, be
better spent somewhere else.
The time has fully come for
the idea of a contractual civil
service to emerge. Put them all
under contract for three-year
periods and when they don't
work out, dump them like hot
cakes.
Go into any government
department for service and all
you get is the run around.
Immediate, simple service is
never immediate or simple.
They are out to lunch, in the
bathroom, picking up their kids
from school, on coffee break or
they are away until next week.
You give some of them $20
bucks for lunch, though, and
you will get service immediate-
ly even if your documents are
not in order. At some govern-
ment departments, you show up
with $50 and you will get every-
thing you wish and more at the
blink of an eye; but if you are
not paying you will wait days


to be served. If you are paying,
no rules will apply; but if you
are not paying all the rules plus
some they will make up for you
will apply, just to keep you wait-
ing.
I was told by a friend that he
went to a certain government
office to have some documents
processed; he asked if it was
possible for him to wait, the
clerk promptly asked him to
demonstrate how badly: he
needed his work done. In plain
English "Show me the colour
of your money".
Corruption is rampant within
the service and at the highest
levels. You pay, you get any-
thing; you don't pay, you get
nothing. We have come, sadly,
to accept this mediocre service
as normal, and so we hardly
ever complain anymore. Politi-
cians promise every five years
but they do nothing. We keep
rewarding this mediocrity with
increases in salaries, benefits
and promotions all at the
taxpayers' expense. We reward
them for treating us like crap.
When are we going to rise up
and say enough is enough?
I believe that if it were up to
the Hon Fred Mitchell, alone,
implementation of civil service
reform would have already
been in its embryonic stages;
but it is his government's 'call
and they are too busy counting
votes for the 2007 general eldc-
tions.

Please sort out problem


of burning garbage


EDITOR, The Tribune
Please print this open letter to
Dr Marcus Bethel, Minister of
Health.
Re: Burning garbage.
Dear Dr Bethel,
I live in the "Kool Acres" area
in the eastern end of the island
and for the past 12 years I have
been complaining about the
garbage being burned in the
Haitian village a few hundred
yards from my home. I have
called the police, the health
department, spoke with over four
different fire chiefs over the years
and up to last night, the smoke


and stink are still going on.
I have now developed health
problems as a result of this sit-
uation and am requesting your
assistance as soon as possible.
My wife and I are finding it
hard to breath at night and we
are suffering from burning eyes,
throats and headaches on a dai-
ly basis.
All the fire chiefs told us they
cannot reach the fire to put it
out as it is in a pit, however,
dead dogs, dead humans, dead
chickens and goats from a near-
by farm are being dumped in
the hole and it has been burning
constantly for the past 12 years
or more.


This can cause another cancer
causing-location that is being
overlooked. Chest pains, cough-
ing, sore throats, burning eyes
and headaches should not be a
way of life here.
As Minister of Health and
Environment, I am holding ybu
personally responsible. If you
are not capable of doing your
job, then please quit and let
someone else protect the good
health of our nation.

MORE than 3,000 votes
were expected to be cast
during the Bahamas Public
Service Union (BPSU)
executive elections yester-
day.
Speaking to The Tribune
earlier this week, current
president John Pinder
explained that despite some
criticism, the union decided
this year to conduct trustee
and executive elections at
the same time.
Mr Pinder said the deci-
sion was a matter of practi-
cality, as 'in the past there
has been poor voter turnout
on several occasions.
In a further attempt to
make the election process
easier, Mr Pinder said that
the ballots also featured
candidate symbols as well
as names.
Mr Pinder has told the
press that he does not feel
the lack of progress in terms
of the union's agreement
with the government will
effect his chances of win-
ning the election.
"I am sure that I have the
support of my members,"
he said. "However, am sure
it will be an interesting
race."
The BPSU has being
pushing the government for
a $150 salary increase for
their members rather than a
lump sum payment.
However, an agreement
has yet to be finalised.,
Polling stations for yes-
terday's election included
the Bahamas Port Depart-
ment conference room,
Sandilands, Princess Mar-
garet Hospital, the BPSU
Hal ant the 'Sir Kendal GL

Among members whom
are running for the post of
president are John Pinder,

Officials: Increasing number of children



being sexually abused in Family Islands


* By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE sexual abuse of children is
prevalent in the Bahamas and is now
on the increase in the Family Islands,
officials say.
This fact has spurred the Crisis Cen-
ter to organise an educational confer-
ence for government officials.
Conference
The aim of the conference is to
impart skills that will help the offi-
cials eradicate or reduce such preva-
lent problems as transactional sex
between older men and young girls,
teen sex, sexual violence and child


abuse.
Improving
Crisis Center director Dr Sandra
Dean-Patterson told The Tribune yes-
terday that improving the skills of
those at the forefront of the fight
against sex crimes, coupled with an
increase in public awareness, will go a
long way to put a dent in the disturb-
ing trend.
The conference began yesterday
and continues today at the Emmaus
Center at St Augustine's College.
Social workers, police officers, nurs-
es and guidance counselors, mainly
from the Family Islands but also from
New Providence, are participating.
Minister of Social Services Melanie


Griffin addressed the delegates yes-
terday, encouraging them to bridge
the gap between government work-
ers and victims and perpetrators by
lending a personal and special touch
on each case they deal with.
Among the list of guest speakers is
Barrington Brennen, a Seventh Day
Adventist pastor who is also a family
and marital counselor.
He claimed that an abuse victim
lives in one in every ten households in
Nassau. In the Family Islands, he
added, abuse is "a silent thing" that is
embedded in many local cultures.
Example
Mr Brennen gave the example of
Cat Island where, he claimed, the


prevalent opinion used to be that
there was nothing wrong with beat-
ing one's wife once a year "to keep
her in line", as long as the switch used
was no thicker than one's thumb.
Backgrounds
Mr Brennen said that as a coun-
selor, he learned that abusive men
come in all shapes and sizes and from
varying backgrounds.
Abusers in the Bahamas, he said,
include even ministers of the Gospel,
bankers and police officers.
As a matter of fact, said Mr Bren-
nen, it is often the more attractive,
affluent men who develop control
problems. He defined intimate partner
abuse as a situation where one partner


tries to control the other, whether it be
through finances, emotions, sex, or
violence.
Statistics, he said, show that race
plays no factor in determining who
will be an abuser.
Assistant Superintendent of Police
Elaine Sands spoke about police
response to domestic violence. She
said that officers put a great deal of
time into dealing with domestic com-
plaints and receive between 15 and
20 new matters each week in New
Providence alone.
Trained
She said officers are presently being
trained in proper mediation, negotia-
tion and communication techniques.


* TOURISM DIRECTOR GENERAL VERNICE WALKINE


TOURISM director general
Vernice Walkine has been
selected as the 2005 inductee
of the College of the Bahamas
Alumni Association's Hall of
Fame.
The distinction was award-
ed for Ms Walkine's achieve-
ments as a student of COB, her
outstanding professional career
and her civic contributions.
Succeeded
The new inductee made the
news earlier this year when she
,succeeded Vincent Vander-
pool-Wallace as director gen-
eral of Tourism, thus becom-
ing the highest ranking woman
in the history of Bahamian
tourism.
"It is a signal honour even
to be nominated for the Alum-
ni Hall of Fame Award, as
COB has graduated more
10,000 students, all potential
candidates for nomination by
reason of being alumni of the
institution," said the college in
a release.
"Vernice Walkine's selection
is even more noteworthy when
it is considered that the names
of some of her fellow nominees
are among the best known in
the Bahamas."
The 2005 Hall of Fame pan-
el of judges included attorney
Felicity Johnson, who is gen-
eral counsel and corporate sec-
retary of Bahamas Telephone
Company; radio personality
and youth advocate Deacon
Jeffrey Lloyd; Archdeacon
Keith Cartwright and Dr Ian
Strachan and Patricia Glinton-
Meicholas, noted authors, aca-
demics and cultural activists.


Ms Walkine emerged the
winner unanimously. In their
summary statement, the judges
commented that her accom-
plishments in her professional
life and civic contributions
made her the "ideal recipient",
one who could stand as a role
model for the students and
graduates of the College.
Panel members also pointed
to Ms Walkine's leadership
qualities, impeccable character
and strong involvement with
the Bahamas' leading industry
as other factors that weighed
heavily in their decision-mak-
ing.
According to Felicity John-
son, "Ms Walkine has reached
the pinnacle of her chosen pro-
fession and is well respected."
Vernice Walkine has been in
public service for more than 20
years and has had and contin-
ues to have a tremendous
impact on Bahamian tourism.
Having joined the Ministry
of Tourism in 1979 as a bilin-
gual tourist information assis-
tant, Ms Walkine steadily rose
through the ranks serving in
many areas.
Promoted
In 1986, she was promoted
to deputy general manager of
marketing with responsibilities
for the Ministry of Tourism's
worldwide advertising pro-
grammes, supervising a multi-
million dollar budget.
Ms Walkine holds member-
ship in several community and
social organisations. She is a
founding member of the board
of the National Art Gallery and
a member of the Nassau


Tourism Development Board.
Luncheon
Ms Walkine will be inducted
into the Hall of Fame on Fri-
day, December 9, during a lun-
cheon at the Wyndham Nas-
sau Resort and Crystal Palace
Casino. Tickets are $35 and
may be obtained by calling 302-
4365/5.

The challenge of Bahamian youth



today, tomorrow and in the future


M IDWAY through
our three-year stint
as chairman of the Progressive
Liberal Party (1969-1972), the
privilege was ours to have
addressed the Rotary Club of
Nassau at one of its luncheon
meetings held at the Sheraton
British Colonial Hotel.
Our topic on that occasion,
more than three decades ago,
dealt with school discipline and
the widening divide that was


account of our address in the
local media. It read thus: "What
are we doing about preparing
the young Bahamians into
whose hands must eventually
fall the destiny of the nation we
are building?" asked Mr
George W Mackey, chairman
of the Progressive Liberal Party
and manager of personnel at
Paradise Island Ltd.
Continuing, Mr Lightbourn
went on to say: Mr Mackey's
question came during his


"It is incumbent upon us
now to take positive steps in
correcting this horrid trend
in school discipline by
co-operating with the
teachers in the wholesome
development of the children
in their care,"


developing at that time betwixt address entitled "Bahamian
parents and teachers. Youth Today, Tomorrow and
The next day, Mr Edwin the Next", to the weekly meet-
Lightbourn, who covered the ing of the Rotary Club of Nas-
event, published the following sau held at the Sheraton British


VIEW

G EOR GE

Colonial Hotel, Tuesday.
He stated that while the past
decade has shown a marked
improvement in the academic
standards of our young people,
it has also revealed a deterio-
ration in discipline in many of
our schools.
He said that it saddened him
to say that while we have gained
great material wealth, we have
seemingly lost many of the fin-
er things in life that money can-
not buy and cited discipline,
honour, morality, respect, loy-
alty and reliability among the
latter things.

P rior to blasting out most
parents' stand against
teachers punishing students, Mr
Mackey said that schools exist-
ed not only to provide a basic
academic education for the
young, but also to assist in the
moulding of their character.
He stated that discipline is
the primary requisite in char-
acter-building and that in this
regard the teacher was almost
as important as the parent in
the proper development of the
child.
He said that prosperity seem-
ingly has brought parents,
including himself, a false sense
of sophistication and as a result
parents have carried the theme,
"I want my child to have it bet-
ter than me," to a ridiculous
extent.
"Instead of supporting the


POINT

MAC KEY

teacher in school discipline,
many of us now side with our
rude children and some parents
have gone so far as to threaten
teachers with prosecution were
they ever to punish their chil-
dren again," said Mr Mackey.
He said that the most unfor-
tunate aspect of this indiscipline
was the fact that its painful con-
sequences will not be confined
to individuals alone, and the
whole country would eventual-
ly suffer as a result. "We are,"


he said, "surely sowing the
seeds of disaster from which we
can only expect to reap a grim
harvest."
"It is incumbent upon us now
to take positive steps in cor-
recting this horrid trend in
school discipline by co-operat-
ing with the teachers in the


wholesome development of the
children in their care," Mr
Mackey continued.
He stated that in less than a
fortnight's time, thousands of
Bahamian children will be
returning to their classrooms as
schools reopen for the scholas-
tic year and it was now impera-
tive that the mature and respon-
sible citizens of the Bahamas
expended more efforts in the
full development of the "sole
and vital natural resource of this
country, its youth."

Saying that the cradle of
any great nation was the
family unit, Mr Mackey
labelled statistics of births
recorded during 1968 as a


"most shocking revelation. He
said that in a government
release late last year, statistics
of births recorded for the Com-
monwealth during the preced-
ing year revealed that out of
4,092 babies born during that
period, 1,160 were illegitimate.
He said that this was a most


shocking revelation, especially
when it was pointed out that
many of these illegitimate
infants were born to teenage
girls.
Mr Mackey stated that most
of these unfortunate offspring
are doomed to a life of neglect,
malnutrition and unwanfed-
ness. "For them, there will be
no family unit," he said, "and
they and the nation we'are
building will be the poorer
because of this, unless we pro-
vide the proper environment
for their wholesome develop-
ment, be it hostel, foster home,
boys/girls club or the like,
where they can be showli in
their most impressionable years
that society really cares about
them."
Mr Lightbourn ended his
report by stating that Mr Mack-
ey concluded his address by/say-
ing that failure to do the things
mentioned above could even-
tually result in undermining the
very foundation of the nation
we are trying to build.
The above mentioned obser-
vations and admonitions were
recorded more than 30 years
ago. Given the plight of far too
many of today's youth .and
some who have graduated from
the previous generation that is
so evident today, can any of us
truthfully say that we as a
nation have made much
progress in reversing these hor-
rendous trends?
Think on these things. i

FNM vote is 'part of strategy to




bring Ingraham back as leader'


FROM page one
Christie nor Governor General
Dame Ivy Dumont that he
planned to resign as opposition
leader. And there was no con-
firmation from his office yes-
terday when this might take
;place.
An Ingraham supporter told
The Tribune that the council's
vote was simply step two in a
four-step process to position the
former prime minister to even-
tually lead the country.
"The strategy was to get Mr
-Turnquest to step down and
;automatically Mr Ingraham
would have become opposition
leader. If that didn't happen
They would do what you saw
"here tonight, and have the
.council in what amounts to a
,vote of no confidence to show


Mr Turnquest what the party
wants. From this point on, Mr
Turnquest's hand will be
forced," he said.
Before the vote, the FNM
MPs had decided amongst
themselves that they wanted Mr
Ingraham as their leader in the
House of Assembly. They met
with Mr Turnquest and told
him that they wanted Mr Ingra-
ham, not only as their leader in
the House, but also as leader
of the party.
FNM chairman Carl Bethel
admitted that the council had
no real significant role to play in
making the decision and that
the process was more of a
"courtesy" extended to that
body.
The election, he said, was to
ensure that all organs of the
party were thinking as one.


"We have a tradition in the
Free National Movement.
When we make substantial
appointments to political offices
- like after the last election
before the announcement of
who was made leader of the
opposition was made public,
before who the senators were
was made public it was
brought to council," Mr Bethel
noted.
Asked if the election was part
of a wider strategy to have Mr
Ingraham return as leader of
the party, Mr Bethel said that
the leadership issue would be
determined "between now and
the convention", which is set
-for early November.
"As we approach the hard
election season the party is
making decisions to put its best
foot forward at the convention


and elsewhere," Mr Bethel said,
While some delegates feel
that the results of Thursday
night's vote could be taken at
face value, there were others -
in both the Ingraham and Turn-
quest camps who believed
that in the upcoming weeks Mr
Ingraham would be positioned
to take the reigns from Mr
Turnquest.
"Once convention is called
in five or six weeks there is a
good probability that Mr Ingra-
ham's name will be put in the
pot for leadership, and when it
does, from what I have heard
from people across the coun-
try, he will win by even a larger
margin than he did yesterday,"
said one council member.-
Brent Symonette, Montagu
MP, and the man who many
delegates are calling on to be


deputy leader of the FNM, told
The Tribune that Thursday
night's exercise was part of
preparing the party for the next
general election.
"We feel Mr Ingraham is
qualified to lead us in debate
and that's what we are moving
toward," he said.
During the several shouting
matches that erupted outside
of the party's Mackey Street
headquarters on Thursday, both
factions seemed to agree on one
thing that Mr Symonette
should be the next deputy
leader.
"I will announce that at the
opening of parliament
(Wednesday, October 5)," said
Mr Symonette.
Although it became heated
at times, observers seemed to
agree that the debates which


erupted at Thursday's meeting
were "healthy and necessary"
for the party.
"It is a good sign that we can
bring out 130 odd of our coun-
cil members and have a pro-
ductive meeting. I think the par-
ty is doing very well," said Mr
Symonette.
Mr Bethel felt that the coun-
cil's vote showed that the FNM
is "alive and well" and not
polarised.
"A substantial majority
favours a certain course and
that does not indicate polarisa-
tion. The spirit in the room was
very positive. Although people
had some differing views it nev-
er became acrimonious," he
said. "It got long winded at
times, but never acrimonious
or hostile."

The employee, who asked not
to be named, called for an
ambulance and walked across
to the beach, where she saw the
man lying face .down in the
sand.
One of the visitors turned the
man over and it appeared that
he was still breathing, said the
employee. However, by the
time the ambulance arrived he


was believed to be dead, she
added.
The unidentified black male
was working on Saunders

police reported.
Up to press time yesterday
police had not released the
man's identity. An autopsy will
be performed to determine the
cause of death.
Investigations continue.

Permanent secretary in the Ministry of
Youth, Sports and Culture, Harrison Thomp-
son, told The Tribune on Friday that he knew
nothing about the promise.
"I don't know where that source came from,
but it wasn't from us because we know nothing
about it. The (re-naming of Harrold Road) is
being led by the Ministry of Works but plans
are still being made for it," he said..
"No one has stated to us that she will be giv-
en a house."
Mrs Williams-Darling, 29, captured the gold
medal when she won the women's 400 metres in
Athens in 2004, and again at the World Cham-
pionships in Finland in August of this year.
The news reports sparked an outcry from
residents who wanted to know how govern-


ment could spend $1 million on an Olympic
athlete when the country's schools are in dis-
repair and several unions are clamouring for
pay increases.
On ZNS radio's Immediate Response talk
show with host Darold Miller, some callers
said that the naming of the, highway, coupled
with a $1 million house, was too much of a
thank you.
"There were others before her and nothing
was done for them. We need to keep it in cer-
tain boundaries," said one caller.
"We need to show that we are world class
and that we appreciate the efforts she has
done," said another.
"I agree with the caller before," said anoth-
er caller. "Tonique is a wonderful person but a
million dollar house? I don't agree with that
one bit. There are legends who don't ayve
roads or buildings named after them."


Martin is expected to retain
responsibility for Transport and
Aviation.
It also has been speculated
that Michael Halkitis is being
considered for the post of Min-
ister of State for Finance and
that A D Hanna, a former
deputy prime minister, is the
frontrunner in a list of possi-
bles to replace Dame Ivy
Dumont when she steps down
as Governor General.

* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THINGS are starting to heat
up for the Bahamas Softball
Federation's National Round
Robin Championships.
Federation president Rom-
mel Knowles said they are
anticipating that this will be the
most exciting nationals yet. It
is scheduled for October 20 to
23 at the Churchill Tener
Knowles National Softball Sta-
dium and the Baillou Hills
Sporting Complex.
"Things are going quite well.
We are putting the finishing
touches on what we expect to
be an exciting nationals,"
Knowles stated. "I think this
will be one of the most excit-
ing championships we've had
in a long time."
. While the New Providence
Softball Association's TBS
Truckers and the Graycliff, now
Electro Telecom Wildcats are
the defending national champi-
ons, Knowles said their rivals
from the six other Family Island
Associations will be coming to
take the title back home.
"The Family Island teams are
fast improving and the parity in


season


softball has increased,"
Knowles added. "So expect that
the Family Island teams will
come prepared to play for the
title. It's going to be very excit-
ing."
While neither of the defend-
ing champions have secured
their place in the nationals yet,
they are both engaged in a
fierce battle in the NPSA best-
of-seven championship series.
The series was scheduled to
start on Thursday night, but was
rained off.
Game one in both the men
and ladies series were pushed
back to last night. Game two in
both series are set for tonight.
SIn the ladies' series, the Wild-
cats, the defending champions
and pennant winners, are fac-
ing the surprising DHL Brack-
ettes, who avoided a rematch
of last year's NPSA final by
coming from behind from a 2-0
deficit to sweep the Degeo
Bommers in their playoffs.
And in the men's series, the
Truckers have their hands full
against the pennant-winning
Electro Telecom Dorcy Park
Boyz, a first year team in the
NPSA.
In addition to New Provi-


dence, championship teams
from Grand Bahama,
Eleuthera, Abaco, Long Island,
Exuma and the newest associa-
tion, Andros, will be participat-
'ing in the men's division.
On the ladies' side, all of the
island associations, with the
exception of Eleuthera, will be
sending a team to compete.
At the end of the round robin
tournament, the top two teams
in both divisions will advance
to play for the federation's
national title. The site and dates
for the best-of-seven series will
be determined by who's
entered.
Also during the round robin
tournament, Knowles said the
federation will announce the
nominees for their Hall of
Fame. Over the last three years,
the federation have inducted a
total of 30 persons to com-
memorate it's 30th anniversary.
"I can assure you that we
won't induct that many,"
Knowles said. "But we expect
to induct persons -that include
umpires, coaches, administra-
tors, players and for the first
time, sponsors, who have sup-
ported the league over the
years."
