Hundreds gather

in Rawson Square


Hurricane Wilma's toll on Eight Mile Rock


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
.HUNDREDS of union mem-
bers descended on Rawson
Square yesterday for the sec-
ond time this month as tensions
between the public service and
government again reached a
boiling point.
Close to 300 members and
supporters of the Bahamas Pub-
.Ji,,Se ,ie Ulnion (BPSU) gath-
ered in front of parliament in
protest against government's
latest proposal for pay increas-
es within the new industrial
agreement.
Union members said the
protest was the only avenue left
to them to voice their discon-
tent as government had "tricked
and misled" them.
However, members of the
government's negotiation team,
said discussions about the con-
ditions of the new agreement
had not even begun yet.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Frank Carter, an
industrial relations consultant
on the government's negotia-
tion team, said the actions of
the union were "very prema-
ture."
Mr Carter explained that
talks had been scheduled earli-
er to open today at 10am,
V"We haven't even begun dis-,
cussing the terms of this new
agreement. The date was set for
(today). And we will be there,"
he said.
Mr Carter added that the
team would engage the BPSU
at the negotiating table and not
in the streets.
Burning copies of the draft
agreement yesterday, dissatis-
fied union members called on


Minister of Public Service Fred
Mitchell and Prime Minister
Perry Christie to "come out and
talk to us."
Several unionists also called
on former Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham to join the
protesters in talks.
"I'm a PLP, but it was under
the FNM government that I
received my fairest treatment.
Bring out Hubert Ingraham -
he'll gt the job done," one pro-
tester called out.
Mr Ingraham, however, did
not attend yesterday's House
of Assembly session.
Addressing the media and the
crowd, BPSU president John
Pinder said that on the surface
the industrial agreement
appeared to meet the payment
of $1,800 which the union had
requested. But a closer look
showed that government
intends to pay out the sum ovet
a five-year period.
"We asked for $1,800 across
the board for the first year,
some benefits in the second
year, and $2,000 in the third
year. Their offer is $600 in the
first year of the contract, $600
the second year of the contract,
nothing in the third year and
$600 in the fourth year and
nothing in the fifth year. It's a
five-year proposal and in our
proposal we asked them for a
three-year proposal.
"No-one in their right mind
can conceive what these people
are trying to do," he said.
Asked if the union could not
have delayed its protest while
the country is struggling with
the aftermath of a devastating
hurricane, Mr Pinder said that

BEWU turns out to



protest labour issues


* BEC workers (in blue shirts) and other public servants stand firm with BPSU president John
Pinder (third from left) in Rawson Square yesterday


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas Electrical
Workers Union (BEWU) yes-
terday joined forces with public
service workers to protest the
government's handling of
labour issues.
Demonstrating in.Rawson
Square as parliamentarians
arrived for the yesterday's ses-
sion of the House of Assem-


bly, BEWU members marched
in a row holding signs demand-
ing.respect and better treat-
ment.
Speaking with The Tribune,
BEWU president Dennis
Williams said that union mem-
bers had no choice but to pub-
licly protest after BEC man-
agement reneged on two con-
tracts that both parties had
agreed upon.
"We had an agreement with
the board of directors and one
with the executive management,
both we held in good faith, both
were reneged on.
"We are here to protest
today. We have exhausted
every other avenue, talks at the
table have failed, our conscience
is very clear," he said.
Following BEWU's strike on
Tuesday, the union executives
said in a statement that they
had unsuccessfully attempted
to resolve various outstanding
issues with BEC management
in an amicable manner but are
now being forced to take more
drastic measures.
Mr Williams said that
although it was unfortunate that
the protest had to take place
only two days after Hurricane

Wilma devastated parts of
Grand Bahama, union execu-
tives have an obligation to pro-
tect the rights of their workers.
"Government has a respon-
sibility to govern but the union
must protect the interests of its
members," he said.
According to union trustee
Herman Rolle, the workers had
given management "ample time
to avoid all this."
Mr Rolle said that negotia-
tions have been ongoing since
June of last year.
"BEC keeps sending people
to the bargaining table that are
not major decision makers.
They make a statement and lat-
er it gets knocked down," he
claimed.
According to Mr Rolle, who
has been a union member for
18 years, the practice of sending
representatives who lack
authority to make decisions is a
tactic that has been used by the
management as the end of
every contract approaches.
No government, he said, has
been willing or able to do any-
thing about it.
"Is BEC more powerful than
the government? If so, we
would like to know," he said.

BTC: only

minor

damage

caused

by Wilma

THE Bahamas Telecommu-
nications Company (BTC)
announced that the country's
communications grid suffered
only minor damages during
Hurricane Wilma.
However according to a com-
pany statement yesterday, some
communities in the Family
Islands did experience disrup-
tions late Monday afternoon.
These included Bimini and
Grand Bahama, which bore the
brunt of the storm, and BTC
said disruptions on these islands
were due to power failures and
downed lines.
"Electrical poles along with
BTC's cables blew down in
Bimini affecting areas like
South Bimini, while areas like
McCleans Town and Taino
Beach in Grand Bahama expe-
rienced extended service dis-
ruptions for quite some time
after the storm.
"However, for the most part
BTC was able to maintain the
integrity of its major switching
centres throughout Grand
Bahama and service has been
virtually restored to most of the
affected areas," the statement
said.
BTC president and CEO
Michael Symonette said: "Major
assessment efforts are still
presently underway to fully deter-
mine the impact on our business
and residential customers with a
view to restoring service disrup-
tions not associated with power
failures expeditiously."
He said that despite the dis-
ruptions, he is extremely
pleased that throughout the
storm, "islands affected were
able to maintain contact with
the capital as a result of BTC's
reliable network".


Ex-policeman




found guilty of




armed robbery


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
A FORMER police officer
was yesterday found guilty of
armed robbery, while his co-
accused was acquitted.
Kendal Hanna, formerly
attached to Cable Beach sta-
tion, was found guilty of com-
mitting armed robbery on June
29, 2001.
Owner of Centerville Auto
Rental Nigel Bethel told the
court that on that date, his
company was robbed of $5,000
cash.
Police reported that two
unmasked men entered the
establishment, one of them
brandishing a handgun.
Fredrick Rigby, a prosecu-
tion witness, placed Hanna
at the scene during the rob-
bery. Mr Rigby said he was
inside Centerville Auto
Rental waiting to be served
at the time.
During Mr Bethel's testi-'
mony, he said he remembered
the face of Patrick Strachan at
the scene.
The jury, however, found
insufficient evidence to con-
vict Strachan.
He was unanimously found
not guilty, while Hanna was
found guilty 8-3. There were
only eleven jurors.
One juror was dismissed yes-
terday after she failed to
attend the trial at the sched-
uled times.

cuted the pair. Ramona Far-


Woman suffers


stroke after


being robbed


in the street


A MIDDLE-AGED
American woman suffered a
slight stroke after being
robbed in a Nassau street, it
emerged last night.
The slightly-built woman
was attacked from behind by
a man who grabbed her hand-
bag and fled with $800.
The incident occurred in
Frederick Street In broad day-
light.
Yesterday, the woman told
The Tribune: "I banged the
right side of my head against a
wall and was left lying on the
sidewalk.
"When I recovered con-
sciousness, there was a loss of
mobility in my left hand and
arm. I went to the hospital
and they told me I had suf-
fered a mild stroke."
The robbery happened as
public concern grew over ris-
ing crime in Nassau. Last
week, an elderly woman was


mugged outside her sister's
home off the Eastern Road.
She later required stitches in
cuts to her head and face.
This latest attack came as
the victim was on her way to
the bank.
"I heard a voice behind me
say something like 'it looks
lik6 you have a lot of money',
then I was knocked against a
building and lost conscious-
ness.
"When I came to, my purse
and belongings were scattered
on the sidewalk. Fortunately,
I did not have my passport
with me, and he did not take
my ID."
The woman believes she
was attacked because she was
small and unaccompanied.
She did not see the robber
and did not recognise his
voice.
The matter was reported to
police, who are investigating.

Despite the decision, both

Supreme Court in handcuffs.
Although Strachan was
acquitted, he is still remanded
on other matters. Hanna was
on bail, but will now serve his
prison sentence.

BTC announces 58 per cent



hike in telephone line rates


* By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter
NEW service rates for BTC
customers may come into effect
by December 1.
The Public Utilities Commis-
sion.(PUC) has announced that
it has concluded its public con-
sultation on the Bahamas
Telecommunications Compa-
ny's (BTC) application to
increase monthly rates for tele-
phone lines.
"The PUC has given approval
for BTC to increase monthly
rates/prices for telephone lines
from $9.50 to $15 for residential
customers and from $20 to $36
for business customers all in
accordance with its application,"
read a notice from the commis-
sion.
The PUC added that the
approval was granted on the
condition that a discount be
introduced for senior citizens.

"After due consultation with
BTC, the PUC requires BTC
to introduce a senior citizen
package based on a 20 per cent
discount on the new monthly
rate/prices for a residential tele-
phone line for qualified appli-
cants," said the release.
According to Barrett Russell,
executive director of the PUC,
the new rates will come into
effect 30 days after BTC and
the PUC have signed the newly-
modified licence.
"The licence has to be modi-
fied, which we are in the process
of doing now, and then BTC
has to agree to it and sign it.
Once that is completed, it will
take 30 days for it to come into
effect."
In a letter to the PUC in
August, Felicity Johnson, BTC's
vice-president of legal and reg-
ulatory affairs, said the compa-
ny has not been allowed to raise
local access rates for 20 years.


"The existing 'below cost
rates' for the local residential
services, which were appropri-
ate in the monopoly era, are
inconsistent with the develop-
ment of competition and the


maximising of social welfare.
"As a result, the existing
below cost rates inhibit market
entry, distort competition and
harm subscribers," the letter
said.

How PLP treated Barry Malcolm


SPURRED by a comment made last week
on a radio talk show by a caller to the effect
that only under the present PLP government
did he feel free to expiess his opinions, we
started to tell the story in this column yesterday
of what "freedom" was like under the old PLP
government.
In fact during the Pindling years this was
such a frightened society that few had the
temerity to express their views openly. Those
who did never forgot the wrath of "the Chief".
For politicians it spelled the end of their polit-
ical careers, for private citizens it could mean
the end, either of a promotion, or a job.
And this is what happened to Mr Barry Mal-
colm, today an executive with the Grand
Bahama Port Authority, but in those days
BORCO's senior Bahamian executive.
BORCO at the time was the Bahamas' pre-
mier employer with 800 full-time and 400 con-
tracted employees a total of 1,200 persons
working in the Grand Bahama facility around
the clock processing crude oil into basic prod-
ucts.
In the 1980s BORCO employees were the
highest paid workers with the best benefits in
the Bahamas. An employee's average income
was $45,000 a year. This did not include over-
time pay. The company spent about $800,000
annually on training programmes for their
workers.
The fight to unionise BORCO went through
the 1982 election, continuing up to and into the
1987 election.
BORCO employees accused prime minister
Lynden Pindling of "using his office to intim-
idate the workers at BORCOand Syntex".
When The Tribune reporter tried to find
out why PLP Senator Jeff Thompson, a former,
PLP Cabinet Minister, was so determined to
head a union to represent the foreign firms'
workers, our reporter was told: "To give Jeff a
platform for his political endeavours". Mr
Thompson was being proposed at the time -
February 1980 -as a PLP candidate for one of'
the Grand Bahama constituencies.
In 1990 Chevron Corporation of the US,
then owners of BORCO, sold to Petroleos de
Venezuela, SA (PDVSA), the present owners.
Sir Lynden and his government failed to
force a union on BORCO, but their failure
took its toll on'the immediate future of the
company's senior Bahamian executive.
We don't know what Mr Malcolm had done
to offend the PLP, unless, of course, he had
failed to assist them in their efforts to force a
union on his company.
In the early nineties BORCO's Venezue-
lan owners were negotiating with Sir Lyn-.
den's government for a seabed lease. The


negotiations dragged on. "They were going
nowhere," said Mr Malcolm.
Then one day Luther Smith, then Permanent
Secretary to Minister Darrell Rolle, arrived
in Freeport with a message.
Mr Smith said he had been sent by govern-
ment to see Jose Solano, BORCO's president.
"The seabed agreement will not be con-
cluded as long as Barry Malcolm is in the posi-
tion he is in. We want him removed," was the
content of the message sent by Sir Lynden's
government.'
"Jos6 Solano came into my office, which
was just next door, he was absolutely ashen,"
Mr Malcolm recalled. "He was the president
and I was the vice president. We were very,
close he was a real gentleman, he was new
to the island and so I Was the eyes and ears of
the company on the local scene."
Mr Malcolm knew the company had to
move on and to do so the seabed agreement
was.important to its future.
It was decided that as Mr Malcolm was a
senior executive in the company he should be
transferred toVenezuela.
There for eight months he worked at the
headquarters in Caracas, where all of the oil
trading was done; moved to Maricabo, the city
located at the mouth of Lake Maricabo, where
the shipping offices were located, then to Cabi-
mas, where the oil was pumped off the lake to
the large refineries in Paraguana.
He had moved from the central office, to the
shipping offices, the oil fields and the refinery.
"It was a great experience and I learned to
speak 'Spanish," said Mr Malcolm.
He came home as an adviser, kept in the
background; to Mr Solano. On the death of
PNM leader, Sir Cecil Wallace-Whitfield, he
became the FNM's campaign manager in the
Freeport by-election that resulted.
It was during this election that Sir Lynden
made his historic prediction that whoever won
Freeport, would win the government. The
FNM won the by-election.,
It was:then that Mr Malcolm took a leave of
absence from BORCO to become the FNM's
coordinator of the Northern Bahamas. He
devoted all his energies to making certain that
Sir Lynden's'prediction came true.
On the long stretched the PLP did not dam-
age Mr Malcolm's career, but it was not
because they did not try.
This is an example of what used to happen
Mr talk-show Caller for 25 years under
the PLP administration. Every time you pick
up the telephone today to call in to a talk-
show to express your opinions, just remem-
ber to whom you owe your new found freedom
of speech.


Class, not





race is the





problem


EDITOR, The Tribune
PLEASE allow me space in
your valued column to express
my displeasure of the so-called
myth of racism in the Bahamas.
I said so-called because during
my 60-plus years, I have never
seen any sign forbidding any
particular racial grouping from
going anywhere in the
Bahamas.
What I have experienced,
however, and this has nothing to
do with colour, but what could
be classified as "classism,"
where a particular group
because of economic or social
standing, would discriminate
against others of less social or
economic standing.
I experienced organised
racism for the first time in the
early 1950s when I went to work
in the United States. I will
always remember that date, it
was November 22, 1954 when I
boarded a Flying Tiger aircraft
at Oakes Field International
Airport, one hour and forty-five
minutes later, we arrived at
West Palm Beach International
Airport, where I went through
immigration, and customs, and
was given my letter of assign-
ment to work for Tom Hinman
in Homestead.
I boarded the Greyhound bus
and saw in bold letters: "I-It-c -.
Federal Regulations requires all
other passengers to'proceed to
the back of white line." Later
that evening in South Miami, at
a bus stop, more passengers
boarded the bus, and an elderly
black lady sat in a seat in the
white section.
The driver apparently saw
her through the rear view mir-
ror, pulled off the road, went
to the lady in a hostile manner
and forced her out of the seat.
On seeing this, I stood up and
allowed the lady to have my
seat. I remained standing until
some passengers got off in Per-
rine.
In August 1955, 14-year-old
Emmit Tell was racially mur-
dered in Mississippi for alleged-
ly whistling at a white woman.
Later in December of the same
year while I was yet in Home-
stead, Florida, Mrs'Rosa Parks
was arrested in Montgomery,
Alabama, for refusing to give
up her seat on the bus to a
white person. This is institu-
tionalised racism on every pub-
lic place, on water fountains
were marked "white"
"coloured" on restroom doors
"white lady" "coloured
woman", "white men",
"coloured".
"During this period, black men
never got beyond "boy" in the


is



eyes of white America. As a
young man, back then, I devel-
oped a disdain for the system,
but was able to outgrow it over
the years. I realised that their
action was based on sheer igno-
rance. That is why we owed our
present and future generation
the true history of our country.
If we feed them false informa-
tion when they research and
find the true history, they would
condemn us.
Politicians who feed false
information to score political
points should be swept into a
garbage tin of history. Mr
"Honest George" Mackey, a
well respected Bahamian histo-
rian, wrote in The Tribune
recently that Sir Stafford Sands,
more precisely young Stafford
Sands, on graduation from Gov-


ernment High School, went-to
be articled in the office of A.F
Adderley to become a lawyer,
so was he really a racist?
PRINCE G SMITH

(Sir Stafford Sands was an
articled law student in the
chambers of his uncle, Sir Ken-
neth Solomon, who was presi-
dent of the Senate. However,
when Sir Kenneth left the island
for any length of time his
nephew, Stafford, was left under
Mr Adderley's supervision. Sir
Kenneth's clients were also left
with Mr Adderley. It shows the
high regard in which this com-
munity held the late A F
Adderley, a black man.
(Up to the time of his death,
Sir Stafford addressed his men-
tor as "Mr Adderley", while to
Mr Adderley his pupil remained
"Stafford". There was respect
on both sides. Ed).


Truth about Turnquest


EDITOR, The Tribune
TOMMY Turnquest, the
leader of the Free National
Movement today, was not the
person who piloted the FNM
in the last General Election.
The piloting of the FNM ship
was done by the former Prime
Minister.
He, in keeping with the
long established tradition in
Bahamian party politics of the
election leader signing all the
nomination papers of the
General Election candidates,
signed all the FNM nomina-
tions, including that of Mr
Turnquest.
In addition the proposed
turnover of authority to Mr
Turnquest was not to occur
until the General Election
itself was completed.
Moreover, in the post elec-
tion post-mortem, all analy-
sis in the media agreed on the
main .cause of the FNM loss,
in the face of a very creditable
performance as a government.
The general view was that
the loss was in fact a reflection
of the dissatisfaction of the
electorate with certain aspects
of the performance of the
FNM Prime Minister. He in
effect was so out of favour that
he was in need of a spanking,
which was administered to the
entire slate of candidates of
the party, regardless of the
very creditable performance


of the government otherwise!
' Hence the loss in the last
election was under the former
PM's leadership! It is there
fore wholly incorrect for any-
one to try to pin this loss on
Mr Turnquest, who in the
next general election will
therefore be leading the Free
National Movement as its
leader, in charge of the elec-
tion, for the first time.
Mr Darrel Miller, was
therefore 100 per cent correct
in pointing this fact out to
those callers to his pro-
gramme who mistakenly
placed the loss of the last
General Election on the
wrong shoulders.
While Bahamians are often
accused of having short mem-
ories, not all of us suffer froni
this malady, and it is impor-
tant to set the record straight.
For those still in doubt, turn
your mind's eye back, exam-
ine the facts of that period
and see if you don't agree
with me that this last FNM
loss was a reflection of the
common view taken of the
last Prime Minister's conduct
and resultant loss of grace
with the Bahamian public. .
Let's be fair to Mr Turn-
quest. Let's make sure that
the record is kept straight.

Aid agencies bring urgent supplies



to residents in Grand Bahama


* By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
A GROUP of agencies and
aid organizations have
already stepped in to devas-
tated areas throughout Grand
Bahama to bring water, food,
and hope to many stranded,
hopeless, and homeless
.Bahamians.
With most of the homes
along Bay Shore Road in
Eight Mile Rock destroyed
by Hurricane Wilma, Inter-
national Rescue, along with
Island Helicopters, Million
Air, and the New Providence
Community Church have col-
laborated to quickly bring aid
to those residents in need.
Yesterday the group, along
with Our Lucaya, the Rotary
Club of Grand Bahama and
the FNM began distributing
food into the devastated com-
munities.
Darren Adler, the chief
officer of International Res-


FNM leader

makes relief

aid trip to

hurricane-hit

communities

By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
SENATOR and leader of the
FNM Tommy Turnquest yes-
terday made a trip to Grand
Bahama to take relief aid to res-
idents affected by Hurricane
Wilma.
Speaking near the smoulder-
ing remains of a resident's home
that had burned down earlier
that day, Mr Turnquest said he
"could not in good conscience"
visit with the residents without
bringing them some supplies.
"We have come down here
with a team. The deputy leader,
the deputy treasurer, etc, and
we are giving out water, ice, and
sandwiches from McDonalds
and Burger King.
"We are just trying to supply
some immediate relief for
immediate needs. We could not
come down here in good con-
science without bringing some-
thing," he said.
Mr Turnquest outlined the
need to respond to natural dis-
asters of such a magnitude on a
timely basis while comforting a
resident who had just seen his
home burn down earlier in the
day.
"We need to respond to the
needs in a timely manner. You
can talk all you want about
help, but bring some help now,"
he said.
For other residents in the
area, many of their landmarks
;.were completely destroyed.
'Twenty-seven 12 x 12 buildings
along the water's edge near Pin-
der's Point were nothing but
debris littering the northern
side of the road.
As one resident stated, in the
blink of an eye, the equivalent
of Nassau's Fish Fry, Pinder's
Point "Sunset Village" was no
more.
"My building used to be the
Blue Lagoon," Joanna Forbes, a
vendor for three years, said as
she pointed to a piece of her
building, now littering the police
station compound.
"I'm hoping we can get some
assistance from the government
or whoever so that we can
rebuild," she said.
Senator Turnquest noted that
since last year's hurricanes, the
National Emergency Manage
ment Agency (NEMA) has yet
to submit any proper account-
ing to his party for the financing
and donations they received.
He wondered why the agency
was taking so long to do so.
"We should have received
something within three weeks,
and at the outset two to three
months but we haven't
received anything as yet.
"See, my difficulty is that it
seems as if we are more con-
cerned with setting up a democ-
racy than responding to these
people's needs," he said.

cue in the Bahamas encour-
aged other thoughtful persons
wishing to donate or help to
continue to do so, despite the
"technical" pitfalls they may
encounter.
Last year International
Rescue along with other
agencies such as the Rotary
Club of Grand Bahama and
many other private individu-
als were hindered by the
National Emergency Man-
agement Agency (NEMA) in
delivering donated relief sup-
plies to areas affected by
Hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne.
Since then, relief organiza-
tions have asked for a more
flexible input from NEMA in
times of national disasters.
"Individual resourcefulness
of persons who want to
donate and help is what we
need to encourage," Mr
Adler said.
"After last years fiasco, we
need NEMA as a facilitator


rather than a manager," he
said.
William Wong from the
NPCC along with a group of
volunteers disbursed food
and much needed water
throughout Pinder's Point's
outer-ring communities such
as Hunters and Lewis Yard.
International Rescue set up
a depot at St Stephen's Parish
Hall in Pinder's Point and dis-
persed food rations and water
bottles shortly after noon and
continued to organize the
ration and aid disbursement
throughout the rest of the
day.
Residents lined the streets
and crowded around the cars
and vans as the caravan with
relief aid drove through the
communities.
Looking ahead, Mr Adler
said that tomorrow will bring
much of the same as they fly
in to the island again to bring
much needed relief to the
devastated communities.

Miss Grant was brought in
the court by wheelchair, and
broke down repeatedly as she.
attempted to recall the incident.
Her younger sister, 10 year-"
old Amy Pinder, also gave anm
emotional testimony. She told.
the court that she saw Brennen
pointing a gun at her older sister.,
Miss Grant testified that on,
the day of the incident, Bren-.

mother.
Miss Grant said she heard hei
mother tell Brennen to leave
her alone or else she would call
the police.
She said she left her home
with her mother and sister and
arrived at the bus stop on Far-
rington Road around 2pm. :
At the same time, she said
she saw a red Nissan Sentra pull
up and Brennen get out. He
then went up to her mother and
said: "Freda, why are you doing
this to me?"
According to Miss Grant, her
mother told Brennen to, "Go
where you are going".
She said she saw Brennen
pull a gun from his waist at
point it at her mother. She said
she closed her eyes when gun
shots rang out, and she opened
them to see her mother on the

the street and the car sped off.
Her little sister told the court
that she saw the accused point-
ing the gun at her older sister.
"He lowered his hand (from
her chest) and then he shot
her," said Miss Pinder.
Ingrid Brennen also took the
stand. Ms Brennen told the
Court that Angelo Brennen had
been her friend for about 20
years.. During that time, she said
Mr Brennen borrowed her car
on many occasions.
On October 29, 2004, she said
she loaned her burgundy Nis-

Infidelity and physical abuse end a



quarter of all Bahamian marriages


ONE out of every two
Bahamian marriages end in
divorce with half of those due
to infidelity and/or physical
abuse.
This is the grim reality
according to Dr David Allen,
clinical psychologist and author
who practises in Nassau and
Virginia.
In a presentation last Satur-
day, Dr Allen kicked off the
country's first free legal clinic:
"Information you need for the
life you want" hosted by Hals-
bury Chambers.
Dr Allen addressed the top-
ic: "Divorce: Before seeing the
lawyers when counselling can
save a marriage."
According to Dr Allen, the
divorce rate in the Bahamas is
steadily climbing.
. Highlighting how often
physical abuse is reported as a
factor in divorces, he revealed


that about 40 per cent of last
year's murders were "crimes
of passion".
According to Dr Allen,
divorce can actually be a good
thing if a marriage has deteri-
orated to "the point of no
return."
Stress-filled marriages, he
said, can have physical affects
on a person's health.
"Partners can become over-
whelmed and shell-shocked.
This powerful paroxysmal
physiological reaction with
anger can cause increased
heart rate, pulse and/or metab-
olism.
"If one is frequently flooded,
hormonal upsets occur and
blood pressure rises. Weight
gain or loss is also a factor.
Marital problems can serious-
ly affect the physical well-being
of a person."

Recovering from Wilma's wrath


HURRICANE Wilma
swept through the
northern Bahamas leaving in its
path death and destruction.
Once again it seems as if Grand
Bahama was hardest hit.
A 15-month-old baby tragi-
cally died in the storm while at
least 100 homes were destroyed
and many more damaged. In
the communities of Pinder's
Point, Hepburn Town, Bootle
Bay and others in the western
district of Grand Bahama,
blocks of neighbourhoods were
totally levelled.
It was truly a heart-wrenching
sight to walk through these
communities and see people
picking through the rubble
looking for whatever belong-
ings they could salvage.
sI recall one elderly woman's
daughter shouting to her moth-
er, "Here mom, I found your
photo" and the mother shouting
back, "I was hoping I would


find that." She then showed me
and others the photo, finding a
bit of humour in the midst of
her tragedy by saying: "This was
me one time ago." In a modest
attempt at comforting her, I
replied: "That is still you."
On visiting another home
which was not levelled but
which suffered extensive water
damage, I learned from the 76-
year-old owner that last year
she had suffered similar dam-
age.
She told me that she had not
sought any help from the gov-
ernment but was able to restore
her home and fully furnish it.
Now she was back to the same
place she was following the hur-
ricanes of last year and she did
not know how she would do
what she did before. This story
could be told over and over
again.

The struggling economy of

housing for the homeless and

cane season is expected to be
extraordinarily active for some
time to come.
People cannot endure an
annual cycle of destruction and
restoration of their lives and the
country's resources cannot sup-
port such. Over the long term,
decisions have to be made
about protecting our coastal
areas that have suffered exten-
sive damage.
The absence of vegetation
along the bay areas of many of
our communities has made
them more vulnerable to ero-
sion from harsh weather condi-
tions and have put lives along
the coast more at risk.
Prime Minister Perry Christie
and his team have their work
cut out for them. They saw the
devastation first-hand during
their tour on Tuesday. Their
rapid presence in the affected
areas was a good thing; that
must be followed by a rapid
response to the immediate
needs of the people, who need
shelter, food, water and cloth-
ing.

I was encouraged by some
statements made by
Shane Gibson, who noted that
the government was looking
into hotel and rental accommo-
dation for some of the displaced


to rebuild and/or repair their
homes. This should be done
immediately, especially with
respect to areas where the dam-
age is so clear and complete.
In this regard, it is important
that the government works
closely with hardware suppliers
in Grand Bahama, especially
Freeport, to define a process that
appreciates the unique bond-sys-
tem of the port area and the
operating needs of businesses.

Some people have asked
me if Grand Bahama
was done worse by Wilma than
by Jeanneand Frances. I say
yes and no. In terms of the


ings were not issued by the
weather people or by the media
but this much seemed clear to
me while the weather chan-
nels in Florida kept saying that
Wilma was a dangerous hurri-
cane, no such regular warnings
were heard by me from qur
media.
The Florida station, as they
typically do, focused on Florida,
yet given that Wilma's eye was
passing directly across South
Florida and the storm had: a
200-mile span, I felt that its
impact on the Bahamas, partic-
ularly the northern Bahamas,
would be significant.
As such, I cancelled a speak-
ing engagement in Guyana an4

many perspectives, most partic-
ularly because it could mean an
immediate source of shelter for
people, the filling of empty
hotel rooms and a slight eco-
nomic boost for the sickly hotel
sector of the island.
As long as the government
carefully defines its budget for
the programme and clearly
defines the rules of the game to
avoid any advantage taking, this
should work out well for those
devastated by the storm.
The government will need to

over and over again: "The
media seemed to underestimate
Wilma."
I cannot myself say that warn-


stayed home to protect my fam,
ily and my home. The Florida
warnings made me take the
storm seriously. I would not
have taken things so seriously
had I only listened to the
Bahamian media because they
gave the impression, for the
most part, that the storm would
not reach the Bahamas with the
severity that it did.
In fact, people who endured
six to seven feet waves on the
southern side of Grand Bahama
felt especially let down that they
did not get more accurate warn-
ings from the media; this accord-
ing to many with whom I spoke,
Blame will not be helpful,to
us in our recovery efforts but
assessing the strength or weak-
ness of our warning system in
this instance could be. Some-
thing seemed out of place about
the way we prepared for Wilma
and we need to find out what
that was.
In the end, however, every
man and woman who values
life, family and property nediss
to be accountable to himself or
herself and get as much infox-
mation as possible in these
stormy seasons and act in their
own best judgment. The fatt
that others got things wrong w*ll
not make your loss any easier.

Fred Mitchell

responds to

demonstration

FROM page one
`Mr Mitchell was
responding in the House
of Assembly to a demon-
stration of about 300 mem-
bers and supporters of the
BPSU in front of parlia-
ment yesterday. They were
protesting government's
latest proposal for pay
increases in the new indus-
trial agreement.
-"' Yesterday BPSU mem-
beis claimed they had
been "tricked and misled"
by government in the new
industrial proposal. How-
ever, according to Mr
Mitchell, discussions in
terms of the "conditions of
the agreement have not
even begun as yet and
therefore I do not under-
stand why union members
are in protest."
"In respect to the press
conference yesterday
(Tuesday) the negotiators
told him (Mr Pinder) what
the government offer was
in the document that was
some 43 articles. He (Mr
Pinder) sat down at the
table and thanked the gov-
ernment for their offer,
said he's very pleased at
it-p said Mr Mitchell.
"Now normally when an
offer is given to you at the
table you say 'thank you
very much for this, I will
review it and I'll come
back and tell you what I
think of it'. However he
(Mr Pinder) said that he
agreed with it, that is until
h6e went home and read
iti"
According to Mr
Mitchell, Mr Pinder has no
reason to say that he was
deceived.
,"A'This is the governmen-
t's opening position, in
other words it is the first
proposal. It is not the final
proposall" he said. "This is
in our view a reasonable
opening position."
'Mr Mitchell said the
)' negotiations will continue
ifi'terms of this agreement.


PM: Grand Bahama suffering




is highest spending priority


FROM page one
highest priority when spending
public funds.
Bahamas Public Services
Union President John Pinder
and other union leaders led a
protest in against governmen-
t's latest proposal of a new
industrial agreement in Raw-
son Square.
"As long as we do what is
good we do not fear the con-
sequences. I ran in six consec-
utive elections. I have always
,placed myself at the will of the
people of my constituency
because they are the ultimate
custodians of the future of our
country.


"I must observe that when I
came to the House this morn-
ing I had no idea of any source
other than Mr Pinder of the
Public Service for industrial
agitation. It is important for
me to say to the people of the
country that it will always be
your choice. I have served a
full political life in parliament
all of the tenants of democracy
I respect, but God knows what
I saw yesterday where men
and women and children were
crying because their homes
and personal possessions were
taken away from them by the
forces of nature. We do not
have the right in this country
to compromise on the relief


they must get," Mr Christie
said beginning debate on the
second reading of the disaster
preparedness bill.
Mr Christie acknowledged
that there is now a need to
spend more money in the
reconstruction and delivery of
aid to Grand Bahama.
"We spent $8 million of
what we projected to be a $24
million expenditure. That was
not planned for as a result of
Hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne and we are spending as
we speak because we have not
completed the restoration after
hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne.
"We have completed


(restoration) in all the islands
of the Bahamas except for
Grand Bahama. It is important
so far as recovery and recon-
struction is concerned that we
move as quickly as possible to
complete this project or pro-.
jects as quickly as possible,"
said Mr Christie.
The prime minister said that
it is his obligation to ensure
that his people are fully aware
that the country may be "head-
ing to choices".
"I have told my Cabinet that
I do not propose as prime min-
ister to increase taxes to the
Bahamian people when I have
fought so hard against the
advice of the International


Monetary Fund not to increase
the taxes of the Bahamian peo-
ple," said Mr Christie.
He pointed out that as prime
minister he does not own the
funds and assets of the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas.
"I am only a caretaker, my
government only exists with
the full consent and approval
democratically endowed by the
people of this country. It is the
constitutional duty therefore
of the prime minister to always
ensure that the people of the
country know that they may
be called upon to make their
choice," said the prime minis-
ter.

FROM page one
many BPSU members were also affected by
Hurricane Wilma and needed their money now
more than ever.
He said the draft industrial
agreement was drawn up before the hurri-
cane occurred.
Leader of the opposition in the House of
Assembly Alvin Smith said that,
while he believes all Bahamians would
agree that victims of Hurricane
Wilma should be top priority at' the moment,
it is the government's job to strike


a balance.
"The workers are not asking government
to turn its back on the victims of the hurri-
cane, but government must also be able to
deal with its employees in a fair and amica-
ble manner," he said.
Mr Carter, however, emphasised that
although this is a time when government is
concerned foremost about the country's
economy and the affect Hurricane Wilma
will have on Grand Bahama and several of
the Family Islands, the goals regarding the
BPSU remain in achieving "fairness and
equity."

GRAND Bahamians are no
strangers to the destructive
power of hurricanes.
Last year, the island was
ravaged by two of the Atlantic
season's most formidable
storms.
However, few Grand
Bahamians seemed to have
been prepared for the utter
ruin left in the wake of Hurri-
cane Wilma a mere catego-
ry two storm.
According to local weather
experts, the fact that Wilma
approached from the south
may go a long way to explain-
ing the extent of the damage.
Tropical storm systems
usually form off western
Africa and travel across the
Atlantic to threaten the north
coast of Grand Bahama.
Like Katrina and Rita before
it however, Hurricane Wilma
formed in the Caribbean.
The storm initially moved
into the Gulf of Mexico and
after ravishing the Yucatan
Peninsula, headed for the
southern coast of Grand
Bahama.
Experts say this area of the
island is particularly vulnera-
ble: unlike the north coast,
which is skirted by the
Atlantic Ocean, southern
Grand Bahama is bordered
by shallow banks which allow
destructive storm surges to
gain momentum.
And some experts believe
that the changing global cli-
mate means that the
Bahamas will continue to face
unfamiliar hurricane scenar-
ios in the future.

Kerzner makes furniture donation



to assist in hurricane relief effort


KERZNER International Development
Limited donated two containers full of fur-
niture to the National Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (NEMA) on Monday, October
17.
According to Kerzner, the donation is part
of the company's ongoing efforts to assist
the Bahamas and is to be distributed to per-
sons who were affected by last year's hurri-
canes throughout the Family Islands.
The furniture, which included colourful
lounge chairs, sofas, drapery and lamps, was
off-loaded by a group of workers and hand-
ed over to NEMA.
Last September, Kerzner International
Bahamas Limited donated $1 million to the
National Disaster Relief Fund following the
devastation caused by Hurricane Frances. !
Tino Clarke of Kerzner Development pre-
sented the furniture to Daniel Ferguson,
materials management consultant at NEMA.
"We are very pleased to make this dona-
tion because there are a lot of people still suf-
fering and still without certain necessities a
year later after the hurricanes of last year
which really hurt the Bahamas," Clarke said.
"It gives us great pleasure to be able to
help alleviate the suffering and give back to
the community as much as we can."
He explained that the donation is a part of
an on-going exercise which coincides with the
renovation of Atlantis.
Clarke pointed out that the resort is
putting in new furniture and rather than dis-
card the original furniture, the company
thought it best to give it to people that can
use it.
"It's a win-win situation. We are improv-
ing the product for Atlantis for our guests
and at the same time we are helping the
people of the Bahamas that are suffering
still from the hurricanes," stated Clarke. 0 KERZNER International presents NEMA with furniture-to assist persons affected by last year's hurricanes.
Ferguson said the furniture will be put to Pictured are O'Neil Meadows of Pinders Custom Brokerage; Daniel Ferguson, materials management

Roof product




may help ease



property rates


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
The founder of a company estab-
lished to distribute the Dura Slate
Bermuda Roof product in this
nation believes that "its proven
ability to withstand hurricane con-
ditions" will create strong demand from Bahami-
an consumers, and may even help bring down
property insurance premiums by causing rein-
surers to look more favourably on this nation.
Guilden Gilbert, founder of Innovative Build-
ing Systems (Bahamas), yesterday told The Tri-
bune that he was motivated to secure an agree-
ment to distribute Dura Slate, an upgrade to
the original limestone Bermuda Roof product
that is now 365 years-old, after hearing about the
devastation caused by Hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne in September 2004.
"I thought it was time for the Bahamas to
look seriously" at obtaining the most hurricane-
resistant roofing product possible, Mr Gilbert
explained.
"I think there's a need for a roof that's proven


to withstand hurricane conditions. The struc-
tures here are built extremely soundly, so if
there's structural damage it's by way of the roof.
The actual building structures they can't be
built any stronger."
Mr Gilbert and Innovative Building Systems
(Bahamas) exhibited Dura Slate at last week-
end's Bahamas Home and Builders Show, and
he said: "Talking to the organisers after the
show, we were told we were the busiest booth
and most talked-about booth."
Mr Gilbert, who set up Innovative' Building
Systems six months ago to begin marketing the
Dura Slate product, said independent tests had
shown that it could withstand 150-185 pounds per
square foot of uplift pressure from winds.
In contrast, a Category Five hurricane with
wind speeds of 155mph had been shown to exert
81.3 pounds of uplift pressure per square foot,
and one packing 200 mph winds exerted pressure
of 135 pounds per square foot.
While tests had shown that Dura Slate could

THE damage inflicted on
Florida by Hurricane Wilma
has "caused a severe disrup-
tion" to the shipping and trans-
portation operations that are
the "lifeline" for the Bahamas
and its economy, The Tribune
was told yesterday, with, the
Port of Miami closed to com-
mercial shipping until this
morning.
Kristof Lingier, the Bahamas
country and operations man-
ager for Seaboard Marine, said


Port closures, fuel shortage and
dock damage in Florida hamper
shipping company operations


that apart from the port clo-
sure and "substantial damage"
inflicted on the company's
docks and terminals, sunken
yachts and boats were partially
blocking the channel leading
to his company's facilities on
Dodge Island, in the Port of
Miami.


As a result, "not all our ships
are able" to enter, Mr Lingier
explained. The Seaboard
Marine vessel that served Nas-
sau was currently anchored
outside Miami waiting for the

Abaco Markets fares 'much better' in Wilma


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
ABACO Markets yesterday said its
Freeport operations had fared "much
better than last year", when Hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne caused a $7 million
insurance claim, although Wilma did
cause "some damage" to freezers and
coolers at its Solomon's SuperCentre
outlet.
Lesley Davies-Baptista, the BISX-list-
ed retailer's vice-president of marketing,
told The Tribune that Thompson's
Wholesale had already re-opened and
was "fine", while Solomon's SuperCentre
was set to re-open today after suffering
no structural damage unlike last year,
when the roof on the former Cedar. Street
location blew off.


However, she added that Solomon's
would open with a temporary "limited
capacity" for frozen goods such as ice
cream and vegetables, due to the wind
damage inflicted by Hurricane Wilma,
which blew off some panels on the store's
freezers.
Summit
"While we did take a hit, it's certainly
much better than last year," Ms Davies-
Baptista said. We were able to signifi-
cantly minimise the impact."
She explained that before the storm
hit, Solomon's staff had transferred a
substantial amount of frozen and cold
products to refrigerated and frozen trail-
ers that were brought in specially for
Wilma.


----------- -.


As a result, the store had been able to
"safeguard quite a bit of product" from
the damage inflicted on the freezers and
coolers. Product loss had been minimised,
and Solomon's will be open today with
perishable products and meats.
Having the trailers "will allow us to
work through our preparation rooms and
work on the perishables", Ms Davies-
Baptista said.
Solomon's staff were in the store on
Monday night to safeguard product as
soon as the storm had passed, and the
premises had already been cleaned up.
Ms Davies-Baptista said assessments
of the damage were still being done, so it
was impossible to give a monetary figure.

PM sounds fiscal

alarm for unions


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
PRIME Minister Perry
Christie yesterday fired a shot
across the bows of the trade
unions, hinting that their pay
demands could upset the Gov-
ernment's fiscal position if they
were met, particularly his
pledge that he would impose
no new or increased taxes
despite International Monetary
Fund (IMF) pressure.
Addressing the House of
Assembly while demonstrators


from the Bahamas Public Ser-
vices Union (BPSU) and the
BEC union protested outside,
Mr Christie said: "I have told
my, Cabinet that I do not pro-
pose as Prime Minster to
increase taxes to the Bahamian
people, when I have fought so
hard against the advice of the
IMF..."
The Government has run
consistent fiscal deficits since
it took office in 2002, showing

Local knowledge


key in offshore


investigations

* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
LOCAL knowledge and expertise are invaluable when con-
ducting fraud and financial investigations in international finan-
cial centres such as the Bahamas, a leading KPMG executive
has said.
Writing in KPMG's Fighting Fraud publication, Michael Peer,
senior manager of KPMG Forensic in Jersey, who has responsi-
bility for 14 offshore centres, said investigation techniques used in
one country were not always as
effective in another.
Mr Peer said that while an SEE page 4B

Data security and recovery





key for business continuity


Whether it's a
malicious
code, a nat-
ural disaster,
hardware
failure or simply a disgruntled
employee, businesses today face
unprecedented levels of risk to
their data. The success of a
company now depends on its
ability to secure and recover its
data.


Securing Your Data
The following items are the
foundation for the security of
your data:
i) Security Policies
ii) Managing Users
iii) Anti-Virus software
iv) Firewall

Security policies should be
developed and implemented. A
security policy is a document
that states in writing how a com-


pany plans to protect its physi-
cal and information technolo-
gy assets. It is essential to ensure
that the policies are enforced, as
many security policies are inef-
fective through not being act-
ed upon. Most people believe
hackers are the biggest threat
to data security. Yet the most
likely threat comes from inside
the organisation in the form of
negligent or disgruntled
employees.


There are several ways to
mitigate this threat:
(i) Implement access permis-
sions to files and folders.
(ii) Make staff aware of their
responsibilities in safeguarding
their user account and password
(iii) Lock down workstations
using group policies to prevent
employees from being able to
take data off the premises.
(iv) Conduct frequent network
audits.
(v) Establish a procedure that
requires two or more network
administrators to collaborate on
a single task.

Computer viruses potentially
breach a company's security on
a daily basis, and they are an
ongoing challenge for network
administrators. We have seen
viruses wreak havoc on com-
puter networks in minutes,
stealing and corrupting infor-
mation and bringing down
entire networks. Implementing
anti-virus software is undeni-
ably essential.
The best line of defence
against these viruses is not a sin-
gle anti-virus software solution.
It is essential to implement a
multi-tiered anti-virus solution,
such as Desktop/Server, as well
as an additional solution at the
gateway. A multi-tiered anti-
virus solution is a more expen-
sive option, but the cost is min-
imal compared to the cost that a
company may face with the
onset of a virus attack.
A Firewall is a software pro-
gram, hardware device or a
combination of both, that mon-
itors the information coming
through the Internet connec-
tion into your Network. Any
well-configured network has at
least one firewall that stands
between the company and the
Internet.

Recovering your Data
File, evel security, anti-virus,
software and firewalls are all
means of protecting your data.
However, none of these tech-
nologies provides the ability to
restore lost or corrupted data.
To safeguard your data in the
event of a business disruption, it
is essential to deploy a depend-
able back-up solution. There
are two types of back-up solu-
tions: Continuous Data Protec-
tion (CPD) and Tape Backup.
CPD is a new technology that
can back up data as it is
changed in real time, allowing
users to instantly return to any
point to recover a deleted, mod-
ified or corrupted file.
Tape Backup is older but
more r |ble technology than
CDP. T Backup technology
enables a copy of the contents
of all or a designated amount
of data from its usual storage
device to a tape cartridge
device.
Tape Backups can be done
manually or, with appropriate
software, be programmed to
happen automatically. Data is
not saved in real time so that, in
the event that there is a need
to recover data, some data will
always be lost.


CDP has revolutionised data
protection as it keeps downtime
to a minimum, whereas it can
take hours to restore data from
a Tape Backup.
Whichever solution you
choose, the most important
point to remember is mainte-
nance. Maintain the technology
and the operational procedures
that support it. Without main-
tenance, your Data Recovery
solution will be worthless.
Data protection and recov-
ery solutions are essential to
ensuring the continuity of your


company. By implementing the
guidelines above, you will miti-
gate against the major risks fac-
ing companies today.

A SENIOR Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce offi-
cial has been appointed as vice-
chairman of the Governing
Council, and Caribbean
Region president, of the Exec-
utive Council for the Inter-
American Private Sector
F0rum.
Khaalis Rolle, who is the
Chamber's second vice-presi-
dent and chief marketing offi-
cer for Bahamas Ferries, also
represented the Bahamian
body and Caribbean Associa-
tion of Industry and Com-
merce (CAIC) at the Organi-
sation of American States
(OAS).
He participated in the ple-
nary session for the Private


Sector Forum organised by the
Argentina Private Sector
Organisation.
Mr Rolle said of his appoint-
ment: "It gives the Caribbean
region private sector grouping
a strong hemispheric presence,
and strengthens our ability to0
address the major concerns
faced by the business commu-
nity, which may differ in some
regards from the rest of the
Americas."
Summit
The Private Sector Forum
plenary preceded the more for-
mal general assembly, which
will take place during the IV
Summit of the Americas in


Buenos Aires, Argentina, in
November 2005. The theme of
this general assembly will be
Delivering the Benefits of
Democracy through Job Cre-
ation: the Businessmen's Role.
The initial gathering for the
Council this body took place
in Fort Lauderdale earlier this
year, when a detailed structure
for its launch was developed.
The meeting consisted of rat-
ification of the organisation's
Charter, the appointment of a
Governing and an Executive
Council, developing the format
and guidelines for construct-
ing regional contributions dur-
ing the General Assembly, and
finalising the agenda for the
IV Summit of the Americas.


Survey assesses daily



water loss in Nassau


CONSOLIDATED Water's
consultants are conducting a
survey to determine how much
water is being lost per day from
New Providence's water distri-
bution system.
Paul Fanner, a water indus-
try specialist with 28 years'
experience, told the Rotary
Club of Sunrise that the Base-
line Survey would develop an
average daily amount for non-
revenue water (NRW), based.
on the International Water
Association's annual water bal-
ance. Once this is calculated,
targets can be set for reducing
NRW from New Providence's
water distribution system by
one million gallons per day


pp

a


The reduction is part of the
contract awarded to Consoli-
dated Water's subsidiary,
Waterfields, which saw the
Government give it the right
to construct and operate the
$23 million Blue Hills reverse
osmosis plant.


That plant is expected to
begin service in the 2006 third
quarter, and the NRW project
will be supplemented by train-
ing for Water & Sewerage Cor-
poration personnel, which will
allow the latter to sustain and
continue reduction efforts.

PM sounds fiscal alarm for unions


FROM page 1B

little sign of getting to grips
with ever-increasing expendi-
tures, particularly recurrent
expenditure, which goes on
wagaS,.emoluments and rent...
The Central Bank of the
Bahamas said the fiscal deficit
for.2004-2005 was likely to be-
around $160 million, little dif-
ferent from 2003-04, although
that is being disputed by the
Government, which believed
improved revenue collections
may have brought the fiscal
deficit in at about $140 million.
Nevertheless, whichever way
the Government spins it, the
constant fiscal deficits mean
the national debt is steadily ris-
ing, which is probably why the


Prime Minister made his veiled
warning to the trade unions
yesterday.
Essentially, he warned that
their demands were irrespon-
sible given the current fiscal
climate and the damage inflict-
eid hv lHrricane Wilmat in


for this to be brought back on
to the legislative front burner.

Local knowledge key in


offshore investigations


FROM page 1B
expanding network ofMuitual Legal Assis-
tance Treaties (MLATs) and other coopera-
tive regulation avenues had aided informia--
tion gathering, "cultural, logistical and legal"
issues relevant to each nation needed to be
handled carefully.
He added: "For example, offshore juris-
dictions can be geographically small, so there
can be a significant danger of tipping off the
perpetrators that an investigation is under-
way........ Landing a team of three or four
foreign investigators on an island of that size
is unlikely to go unnoticed.
"On the ground knowledge of close friend-
ships, collegial relations, family ties and oth-


er social and business networks is essential.
You never know who the taxi driver taking
you from the airport is talking to."
Mr Peer said communications were among
the issues that had to be considered in under-
taking investigations in international financial
centres, using the example of UK-registered
cell phones not being able to work in the
Bahamas. Obtaining work permits was anoth-
er problem.
He added: "Although global fraud and
investigations are now commonplace, the
value of understanding local island culture
cannot be underestimated.
"Encountering an offshore financial centre
during an investigation does not have to be
intimidating, as local resources and knowl-
edge can overcome some of the barriers."

port to open.
Mr Lingier said: "I can't say
with any guarantee, but hope-
fully our ship for the Nassau
service will be in the Port of
Miami for Friday, so hopefully
we will have some supplies
coming in for Saturday, but
there's still a big question
mark."
He added that Port Ever-
glades, the port from which
Seaboard Marine served
Freeport and Grand Bahama,
was also "in pretty bad shape".
It is unclear how badly
affected other Bahamas-based
shipping companies have been
by the Wilma-inflicted devas-
tation in Florida, as others con-
tacted by The Tribune did not
return this newspaper's calls.
There was better news for
shipping companies who use
West Palm Beach, though, as
that port was open yesterday
for commercial shipping.
Of the general situation, Mr
Lingier said: "It's [Wilma]
caused a big disruption. A lot
of businesses and suppliers in
the Miami and South Florida
area are still not operational.
They're still without power and
Our office [there] does not have
power. They're running on
generator, which allows us lim-
ited capabilities."
The Seaboard Marine exec-


utive said "customers are call-
ing me like crazy" to find out
where their cargoes and goods
were, which emphasises the
importance of shipping opera-
tions to the well-being of the
Bahamas and its economy.
Without the supply chain
link provided by the shipping
companies, Bahamian busi-
nesses will rapidly run out of
goods and inventory, damag-
ing the entire economy.
Mr Lingier said yesterday:
"It became very clear after 9/11
that without shipping into the
Bahamas, the Bahamas only
has supplies and food for two
weeks. We are the lifeline for
the Bahamas."
Another issue affecting the
supply chain for the Bahami-
an economy was the scarcity of
fuel in south Florida, as Wilma
had destroyed many gas sta-
tions, while many of those
remaining were closed or had
run out of supplies.
As a result, the transporta-
tion companies that brought
goods to Florida ports for
onward shipping into the
Bahamas would have .difficulty
in obtaining fuel for their vehi-
cles, making it difficult for them
to perform this task.
Mr Lingier said there was a
large supply chain involved in
providing goods to the
Bahamas, and a disruption to
just one link could mean "lots


of effects on the end of the
chain".
Seaboard Marine was doing
everything it could to return
operations to normal, Mr
Lingier added, holding two
company-wide conference calls
per day for 50-70 people,
updating them on the positions
of cargoes and ships, plus the
Port of Miami's status.
"I want to reassure the
Bahamian public we will do
whatever is in our power and
beyond to put everything back
in place. Whatever we can do,
we do," Mr Lingier said.
"We are already on top of
things. There are a lot of things
we have no control over, and
now we have to wait for the
US coastguard to open the
ports."

Roof product may help ease property rates


FROM page 1B

withstand Category Five force
winds, and fasteners were also
added to secure the roof, Mr
Gilbert, who is also president
of the Bahamas Insurance Bro-
kers Association (BIBA), was
quick to point out that no prod-
uct was foolproof.


He added, though, that the
product had been field-tested
in Bermuda, drawing on an
example from when Hurricane
Fabian hit that island in 2004.
Dura Slate differs from the
traditional limestone slate that
formed the bedrock of the
Bermuda Roof when intro-
duced in 1640, in two ways.
Dura Slate, made from an


Autoclave Aerated Concrete,
is half the weight of limestone
slate, weighing 13 pounds per
square foot compared to 26
pounds. In addition, Dura Slate
has fasteners to aid its ability to
withstand wind uplift.
Mr Gilbert pointed to the
example of the Tucker's Point
development in Bermuda,
where the developer was scep-


tical of Dura Slate's merits and
refused to use it, yet some
clients who owned multi-mil-
lion dollar homes on the prop-
erty decided to use it.
Out of the first five homes
built, one used limestone slate
and the others used Dura Slate.
When Hurricane Fabian, a Cat-
egory Three storm, hit Bermu-
da, the only home out of the
five with roof damage was the
limestone one, Mr Gilbert said.
He added that insurers and
reinsurers were also looking
favourably on Bermuda due to
the minimal level of residen-
tial damage caused during Hur-
ricane Fabian. American Re, a
large property reinsurer,
described the style of roof in
Bermuda as "probably the
biggest reason why residential
damage was minor", as the
roofs were "sealed from the
elements and difficult for wind
to penetrate".
Mr Gilbert said property
insurance premiums in Bermu-
da were on average 0.85 per
cent of the rebuilding value,
while in the Bahamas they
were between 1.2-1.6 per cent,
"so in some cases in Bermuda


it's half the premium".
"If the roof stays on, you
don't get as much structural
damage," Mr Gilbert said. If
more homes here have hurri-
cane resistant roofs, it's possi-
ble you may see the reinsurers
look more favourably on the
Bahamas.
"This is showing there is a
way to save on some premium
costs. When hurricanes hit in
Bermuda, you don't get the
wild fluctuations in premium
costs you do here."
Mr Gilbert, a native Bermu-
dian who is married to a
Bahamian, said he had been
able to obtain the Bahamian
and Caribbean distribution
rights through his familiarity
with Dura Slate, coupled with
the fact that his parents lived
just up the road from the man-
ufacturer, Matthew Waite.
Manufacturing had since
moved to Jacksonville, making
it easy for Dura Slate to be
shipped to the Bahamas. Mr
Gilbert said one developer set
to break ground on a project
within the next few weeks had
already committed to using
Dura Slate.


He added that he also con-
trolled Premier Roofing
(Bahamas), which traded urider
the name Bermuda True Roof,
and which was used to install
Dura Slate roofs.
Mr Gilbert said the product
was very competitive in terms
or price and ease of installa-
tion when compared to the Sty-
rofoam Bermuda Rood being
sold here, which was developed
and patented in 1968.

FROM page one

Bullard, who worked his way
inside to complete a three-point
play to put the Sparks up 3-1
for good before Sands con-
nected on a free throw before
the end of the quarter.
Only one point would score
in the entire season quarter and
that came on a free throw from
Sands.
Then in the third quarter, St
Thomas More started to pull
away, opening up as much as a
ten-point lead as Bullard kissed
the glass for a jumper as he got
around the defence of St.
Bede's Kaylica Laing,
the only female player in the
game.
After Thorne Curry hit a
jumper for Crushers' 7-3 deficit,
the Sparks surged ahead 13-3
when Paul Smith got an offen-
sive rebound and hit a lay-up
and Daniel Bullard came up
with two quick steals that he
converted on lay-ups.
From there, St. Thomas More
stayed one step ahead of St.
Bede's, whose coach,Maurice
Fawkes tried all he could to get
them to pick up their offence
down the stretch.
"I'm proud of them. I see
them doing a lot. more things
aggressively that they haven't
been doing before," he pointed
out. "We just have to make bet-
ter inbound passes and be more
aggressive."
While Theron Taylor led St.
Bede's with seven points,
Thorne Curry scored two and
Dwayne Rolle added a free
throw. Rolle, however, had a
couple of key block shots as he
took advantage of his height
inside.
The league will take a break
because of the mid-term break.
Action will pick up next Tues-
day when Our Lady's travel to
St. Cecilia's and St Thomas
More go to St. Francis/Joseph.
The tournament was official-
ly opened by Charles 'Chuck'
Mackey, the vice principal of
the RM Bailey Secondary High
School.


W HENEVER the
Electro Telecom
Wildcats hit the field to play in
the Bahamas Softball Federa-
tion's National Round Robin
Tournament this weekend,
their line-up won't be the
same.
Even their mission will be
slightly different as they go
after their fifth national title.
They will be focussing their
emphasis on playing for their
jovial right-fielder Jackie 'Lil
Stunt' Moxey, who died on
Wednesday at the Princess
Margaret Hospital after being
rushed to the accident and
emergency department on
Tuesday night.
For at least 30 years, the
compact Moxey was a house-
hold name in the NPSA's fast-
pitch, the Bahamas Govern-
ment Departmental Softball
Association's slow-pitch
league and the Baptist Sports


"When most of her
team-mates would decline to
speak to the media about their
thrill of victory or even their
agony of defeat, Moxey was
never one to back down."


Council's modified pitch
league.
Whenever she came to play,
you knew she was in the game
because she had one of the
loudest mouths on the team,
cheering her team-mates on
and annoying her rivals.
When most of her team-
mates would decline to speak
to the media about their thrill
of victory or even their agony
of defeat, Moxey was never
one to back down. She was a
reporter's delight because of


the comments she made.
As her Wildcats team, who
were sponsored by either
Graycliff or the Electro Tele-
com, were either blowing out
a series or getting ready to
clinch a title, Moxey would
enthusiastically state how
many games were left.
In most cases, she was right
on the money as the Wildcats
would go on to live up to her
predictions.
As a lefty, Moxey rarely
dropped a ball in right field


where she was considered a
"golden glove".
She also had the speed to
track down any balls that got
past her.
Her game had started to
diminish with each passing
year, but whenever Moxey
came up to bat, she was still
considered to be a threat to
score once she got on base.
She was the lead off batter
who normally made things
happen.
It was a difficult pill to swal-
low as I watched her once
vibrant body lay motionless
on the table hooked up to the
life support system. It was
hard to believe that she won't
be able to spark the Wildcats
rally when they go for their
fifth straight national title.
The Wildcats will now have
to dig down deep within them-
selves to get the motivation to
play for Moxey instead as
number five will not be there
in right field.

AFTER a year's break, the DW
Davis Junior High School will host its
second basketball classic thisweek-
end at the DW Davis Gym.
Dubbed the "Junior Hugh Camp-
bell Classic", twelve schools, including
the visiting Harbour Island High, have
confirmed their participation in the
tournament that opened yesterday.
The competition, which will divide
the teams into two different pools, will
start tonight and run through the mid-
term break with the championship
game being played on Sunday.
The DW Davis Pitbulls, the defend-
ing champions, will head Pool One
that will include the St. Andrew's Hur-
ricanes, HO Nash Lions, Harbour
Island, SC McPherson Sharks and


Faith Temple Warriors.
The Jordan Prince William Falcons,
AF Adderley Fighting Tigers, LW
Young Golden Eagles, St. John's
Giants, CH Reeves Raptors and St.
Anne's Bluewaves make up Pool Two.

Quest

DW Davis, in their quest to repeat
as champions, will be coached by
Rubin Mounts, who guided the Pit-
bulls to the Government Secondary
Schools Sports Association's junior
boys pennant and championship in his
first year back.
And Ricardo Ferguson, the founder
of the tournament and coach of the
Pitbulls when they won the first title
two years ago, is now at AF Adderley.
Alfred Forbes, who has the respon-
sibility of putting the schedule togeth-
er, said, based on the teams entered,


the tournament should be very com-
petitive this year.
"Again this year, we have 12 teams
and they will come from both the pri-
vate and public schools," said Forbes,
who has also been responsible for
putting the schedule together for the
Hugh Campbell Basketball Classic,
organised in February by AF Adder-
ley.
"This tournament, even though it's
just the second one, is preferred as
the junior Hugh Campbell Classic and
it should be keenly contested between
the public and private schools. We will
also have a Family Island team entered
for the first time."
Despite the inclement weather expe-
rienced on Monday because of Hurri-
cane Wilma, Forbes said the organisers
are anticipating that the weather will
clear up and everything will be in
order for this weekend.


"DW Davis are the defending cham-
pions of their own tournament, but
competition is expected from St.
Andrew's, St. Anne's, HO Nash,
Prince William and AF Adderley,"
Forbes stated.
"They are considered the top teams
in the tournament."
Four games are on the schedule
today with AF Adderley taking on
LW Young at 3pm. At 4pm, St.
Andrew's will take on HO Nash. CH
Reeves and St. Anne's will play at
5pm and the feature game at 6pm will
showcase SC McPherson and Faith
Temple.
On Friday, another four games are
set, starting at 3pm.
Then on Saturday, ten games are
scheduled from 9am.
The playoffs will get started at 1pm
on Sunday with the championship to
follow.

Tributes paid to


Jackie


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THE tight-knit Electro Telecom
Wildcats suffered a major blow on
Wednesday when their rightfielder
Jackie 'Lil Stunt' Moxey died in hos-
pital. She was 44.
Outside of the Accident and Emer-
gency Department of the hospital on
Tuesday, where the Wildcats assem-
bled with family members, friends and
New Providence Softball Associa-
tion's rivals, there was a somber
moment with many in a state of shock
and disbelief.
At least two Ministers of New Des-
tiny Full Gospel Baptist Church,
Tyrone Knowles and Stefan Edge-
combe, stood by the bedside of their
member, as people arrived to give
their support.


St Thomas

More keep

their spark

in opener

* BASKETBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THE St. Thomas More
Sparks may have lost some of
their key players from last
year's championship team. But
they still had enough weapons
left to out-last the St. Bede's
Crushers in the Catholic Pri-
mary Schools' basketball sea-
son opener.
Playing before a large crowd
on their home turf, the two-time
defending champions Sparks
pulled off a 16-10 victory over
the Crushers on Wednesday in
a real defensive battle.
Coach Leo Delaney had a
broad smile on his face as he
complimented his squad.
"I'm happy with it. It was a
little bit sloppy, but it was
expected because this is the first
time that a lot of these guys are
playing together," he stated.
The Sparks were riding on
the back of their star guard
Daniel Bullard. But once he
fouled out in the fourth quarter,
Paul Smith stepped up and pro-
vided the defensive spark that
they needed to keep St. Thomas
More ahead.
When Bullard exited the
game with about four minutes
left and St Thomas More lead-
ing 16-10, coach Delaney said
he became concerned.
"But I knew that if our team
played defence, we would be
able to still pull off the game,"
he added. "I was happy that
they were able to do that."
Before leaving the game,
Bullard made his contribution
with a game high 10 points.
Smith, in picking up the slack
in the fourth quarter, chipped in
with four and Yorick Sands
added a pair of free throws.
St. Bede's, who didn't make
the playoffs last year, got the
first point of the game on one of
two free throws from Theron
Taylor.
But they couldn't contain

Shock after player's death


Everybody knew that they had to
prepare for the inevitable.,-
"It's really a sad day," said left-
fielder Renee 'Sunshine' Sweeting.
Centrefielder Vernie Curry said,
when she looks to her right, she won't
see Moxey there.

Difficult
She said it's going to be difficult to
play without her.
Ace pitcher Mary 'Cruise' Edge-
combe came to tears as she noted that
she had just talked to Moxey the night
before about the schedule for the


BSF's nationals this weekend.
Jean 'Bubbles' Minus, the team's
utility player, called it a "sad day" for
sports in the country.
"Jackie is like a sister. We're all
just one family. This is just a really.
sad day for sports," Minus insisted.
"I just saw Jackie on Sunday when
we played in the championship in the
Bahamas Government Departmen-
tal Softball League. We were just hav-
ing fun. She was the last out at the
plate.
"We just embraced and parted
ways."

Round robin

tournament

will go ahead
U SOFTBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports
Reporter .-.,
DESPITE the tragic
death of Electro Telecom
Wildcats' right-fielder'
Jackie 'Lil Stunt' Moxey,
the Bahamas Softball
Federation's national
round robin tournament
will still be played this
weekend.
The nationals were put
on hold last week
because of the passing of
Hurricane Wilma. But,
this weekend, it will be
staged in conjunction
with the Austin 'King
Snake' Knowles National
High School Tourna-
ment.
But Knowles said it's
best that they play the
nationals, instead of post-
poning it.

Emotional
"It's going to be very
emotional for all of us
during the opening cere-
monies. I hope I don't
cry," Knowles stated.
"But, knowing Jackie,
she will want us to play.
"I know it's going to be
very hard, but we have to;
try and do this one for
her."
The opening cere-I
monies for the nationals
are scheduled for Friday.
The Wildcats will be
seeking their fifth
straight national title, but
they will have to do it
without Moxey.
i'Jackie has been one of
the most inspiring ath-
letes. She's been playing
for a very long time,"
Knowles reflected. "She's
been a great motivator,
especially when I'm
down. It's hard for me
right now."
Members of the Wild-
cats were scheduled to
meet on the Baillou Hills
Sporting Complex where
Moxey played her last
softball game on Sunday
in the Bahamas Govern-
ment Departmental Soft-
ball Association.

Gathering
Leftfielder Renee 'Sufn-
shine' Curry said they
were gathering to deter-
mine what they will do
this weekend in .the
nationals.
"We know she wouid
want us to play," she
pointed out. "We don't
know what will happen
when we get on the field.
But we will decide what
we will do."
Sweeting said every-
body was shaken .up on
Tuesday night when they
met at the hospital.
"Everybody cried,"
Curry said. "I know when
we heard the news today
that she died, we cried
some more. I guess when
we go out on the field to
play again, we will proba-
bly cry some more. She
won't be in right field
anymore."

Christian Council spearheads





spiritual outreach to men


* By PETURA BURROWS
Tribune Feature Writer
"Members of
the Bahamas
Christian
community
are taking a
stand, having made the deci-
sion to stop talking and to do
something about the numerous
issues that plague today's soci-
ety, including violent behav-
iour, poor communication
skills, conflict resolution fail-
ures, infidelity, and other prob-
lems that Bahamian men strug-
gle with.
"We recognize that we have
to talk about'it. We have held
many discussions. We have
been thinking about it and talk-
ing about it for far too long.
Now, we have decided to act,"
Alfred Stewart, assistant pas-
tor at New Mount Zion Mis-
sionary Baptist Church, told
Tribune Religion yesterday.
Mr Stewart is chairman of
the Bahamas Christian Coun-
cil's committee for its upcom-
ing spiritual outreach to the
men of this country, "Bahamas
Awakening 2005 and Beyond".
The council has invited all of its
member churches to partici-
pate in this landmark effort
which will be held in conjunc-
tion with the United States-
based programme, Promise
Keepers Movement, which
subscribes to the belief that if
you want to change the world,
change its men.
Promise Keepers Movement
(PK) was born in March, 1990,
when Bill McCartney, then
head football coach for the
University of Colorado, and his
friend, Dave Wardell, were on
a drive from Denver to Pueblo,


Colorado. They thought of how
they could reach men in their
community. Subsequently, a
group of men was organised to
form a plan that would hope-.
fully rejuvenate Christian men
with a new spiritual emphasis.
Everything came together
eventually, and in 1993, PK was
born. Its rallies, which are con-
ducted periodically in various
parts of the country, continue
to attract thousands of men,
many of whom travel great dis-
tances to attend.
"Bahamas Awakening 2005
and Beyond", comes a at time
when many persons in the
church and the wider society
have expressed "grave con-
cern" over the lack of direc-
tion and motivation on the part
of many of the males in
Bahamian society.
"This couldn't have come at
a better time. When we look
at the lives of our men, the
murders, the serious crime, the
wave of crime, it's a reminder
to us as a nation that our men
are challenged, particularly our
young men," said the chairman.,
There may be programmes
currently available that seek to
positively influence the behav-
iour of men through teaching
practical ways of resolving con-
flicts, but Mr Stewart believes
that these efforts often miss a
vital point. In his opinion
deviant behaviour is the root
of a much greater problem, a
spiritual one. "We have to rec-
ognize that we need to get to
the root of the problem; that
is to the spirit of man. You
have to first begin with the
root, then you get change. We
want to reach the young men,
and seek divine intervention."
A highlight of "Bahamas

will be the national solemn
assembly on Friday, Novem-
ber 11, and a mass rally on Sat-.
urday, November 12. Both
events will be held at Clifford
Park, beginning at 6pm. There
will also be a T-Shirt Day, and
Men's March on Sunday,
November 6.
The purpose of the solemn
assembly is to bring together
men of the church, the state,
and civil society to seek the
face of God in prayer for the
men of our nation, as well as to
lay the proper spiritual foun-
dation for the ongoing efforts
of "Bahamas Awakening".
In his recent Synod address,
Bishop Drexel Gomez, head of
the Anglican diocese of the
Bahamas, said the purpose of
this effort is also to bring about
a night of national repentance
for the sins of the men of the
Bahamas.
"This repentance, in its com-
plete form, will be about a
change of mind, heart and.
direction for the men of our
nation. I believe that the pro-
posed Awakening has the
potential for renewal and trans-
formation at a time when so
many negative influences are
adversely impacting the peo-
ple of our nation."
Archbishop Gomez went on
to encourage the men of the
Anglican faith to join with men
of other denominations in what
he hailed as an important
national endeavour.
Among the speakers sched-
uled to address the rally are
Archbishop Gomez; Joe White
of the Promise Keepers Move-
ment; Mike Silver; Dr Myles
Munroe, senior pastor of
Bahamas Faith Ministries


International, and Bishop Neil
Ellis, pastor of Mount Tabor
Full Gospel Baptist Church.
The committee also expects
greetings from Prime Minister
Perry Christie and president of
the Promise Keepers Move-
ment Dr Thomas Fortson.
The philosophy of the
Promise Keepers is based upon
the premise that Christian
growth begins by making
promises. And as a guideline
it has constructed seven princi-
ples for its' organisation.
According to Mr Stewart,
"Bahamas Awakening" has
adopted these promises as the
goals for the local effort:
To see the men of the
Bahamas committed to fearing
God, leading to repentance,
salvation and a commitment to
honour Jesus Christ through.
worship, prayer, and obedience
to God's Word in the power of
the Holy Spirit.
To see the men of the
Bahamas committed to pursu-
ing vital relationships with oth-
er men, understanding that
they need brothers to help
them keep their promises.
To see the men of the
Bahamas committed to prac-
ticing spiritual, moral, ethical,
and sexual purity.
To see the men of the
Bahamas committed to build-
ing strong marriages and fami-
lies through love, protection
and biblical values.
To see the men of the

porting the mission of their
churches by honoring and pray-
ing for their church leaders and

'He need Jesus,



he need Jesus'


* By ALLISON MILLER
"HE need Jesus, he need
Jesus", was the call that
echoed out, just as the mes-
sage of John the Baptist
when he cried out in the
wildness "Make straight,
prepare ye the way of the
Lord". The voice said it
twice and it caused me to
think that after all the scruti-
ny and bad mouthing "The
Church" suffers, it still all
boils down to the fact that
people need the Lord.
Example
I was privileged to hear a
conversation that my col-
leagues were having. They
were discussing the poor
example set by people in the
church, especially the lead-
ers. Someone jumped up
and said, "That's Allie and
*John's people." John quick-
ly got up to defend the
church he was a member of,
but I explained to him that it
did not matter what local
assembly you go to you are
still a part oft the wider
Church body and will have
to suffer the talk.
After considering what I
said, he paused and
explained. "It's not the
church you know, it's per-
sons who take decisions to
represent it in a derogatory
manner. God isn't lacking in
anything, He is perfect. It is
just that we fail in our many
attempts of living the way
He says that we are to live."
I couldn't have said it bet-
ter myself.
Unfortunately, what hap-
pens is that some persons set
a bad example and every-
one else has to suffer the
blame. There are however,
people who live exactly the
way God says they-are to
live and we can not beat
them with the hypocrisy


* ALLISON MILLER


"After all that
God has done
for us, even
when we suffer
the worst trial or
condemnation,
God is worth it
all. I thank Him
for making life
worth living.
He keeps us,
forgives, comforts
and loves us
regardless."
A Miller


stick.
It is true that the best
example has not always
been set. However, that does
not give anyone license to
degrade and condemn peo-
ple. Too many of us want to
be God, to judge and con-
demn people to hell. God
moves too slow and is too
merciful for some of us. But
isn't God an all knowing and
all seeing God. If no one
else in this life knows what
they are doing, God surely
knows what He is doing.
I know it is disappointing
when you trust and look up,
only to be let down, but that
does not mean that we are
to pass condemnation on
people. GOD is the judge of
us all and He will have the
last say. We need to stop
killing each other with the
pink rag in our mouths. The
damage it does is unbeliev-
able. I am proud to be a part
of something that makes a
positive change and I will
not allow the devil or any
demon he uses to change
that.
Suffer
After all that God has
done for us, even when we
suffer the worst trial or con-
demnation, God is worth it
all. I thank Him for making
life worth living. He keeps
us, forgives, comforts and
loves us regardless. Many of
us can say, "Had it not been
for the Lord on my side
where would I be." God is a
good God and His love and
kindness is greater than life
itself. I am grateful to Him
for having me be a part of
His Kingdom.

tity.


Former rectors




to be honoured




at gala banquet


ALL Saints on Calvary Hill
Anglican Church, Joan's
Heights, will honour three for-
mer rectors during a gala ban-
quet on Friday, October 28,
at the Cable Resort. The
event, titled' Men of Distinc-
tion', will pay tribute to Father
Addison Turnquest, Father
Patrick Johnson and Father
Harry Ward.
Father Sebastian Campbell,
current rector, said that this
is the perfect time, the 30th
Anniversary of the parish, to
honour these distinguished
men of faith who have impact-
ed the members and the com-
munities of South Beach, Joan
Heights, Bamboo Town and
Pinewood Gardens in partic-
ular.
As we embark on another
mile of our journey, we must
reflect on the contribution of
those that have brought us this
far and give them their praise
while they are alive," Father
Campbell stated.
Father Addison Turnquest
Bishop Eldon charged
Father Turnquest with the
responsibility to build a church
in the southern part of New
Providence. Father Turnquest,
who was the assistant priest
at Christ the King, Ridgeland
Park, encouraged a few mem-
bers from that parish to join
him in the undertaking. The
land for the church was gen-
erously donated by the late
Stanley 'Pa and Ma' Bethel
and cleared for building by
their son, Stanley Bethel, and
jgrandspus, Gary, and, Mica 1,,,

The first service of .All
Saints was held in a tent bor-
rowed from St Gregory's,
Carmichael Road, and the


altar donated by the late
Father Anthony Roberts.
After many cookouts the
church building was dedicated
on January 18, 1976.
Father Turnquest stayed
with the Parish until 1982 after

.ing F4ther .Murillo. Bo.naby,
Father James Moultrie, Father
Samuel Stirrup and Father
Patrick Adderley, served until
a permanent replacement was
made in the person Father S.


Patrick Johnson.
Father S. Patrick Johnson
Father Johnson was
appointed to All Saints Parish
in August 1988. He immedi-
ately took on the challenge of
enhancing the spiritual life of
the church. Under his lead-
ership the church's mortgage
was paid off and additional
property purchased to the
east. Father Johnson is also
credited for settling the choir.
He and his wife Ethel were
instrumental in the establish-
ment of the Friday morning
breakfast mass. Mrs Johnson
also taught Sunday school dur-
ing her husband's stay at All
Saints.
Cursillo was also introduced
at All Saints in 1985, under
Father Johnson and today the
Parish is at the fore-front of
this spiritual renewal pro-
gramme within the Anglican
church in the Bahamas and
Caribbean. Father Johnson
has also worked with the
ACM in walk-abouts in the
Pinewood Gardens area to
bring new members into the
church. He also instituted the
hospital visitation programme
that still exists today.
Father Harry Ward
Father Ward replaced
Father Johnson in September
1988 and served until August
1990. His contributions to All
Saints included exercising
astute management over the
Parish's business, settling the
vestry and strengthening
youth groups and their activi-
ties. He also introduced the
Discovery, Renewal and Cou-
ples Club and the experimen-
tal 'Even Song' of the
Province.

Look where the Lord has brought us now...
He has brought us a mighty long way, to God be the Glory!

Word from the Servant of God

On October 5th, 1995, I was commissioned by our Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ, under the leadership of Pv. Dr. EarClFrancis, pastor of f9rst Baptist
Church, to start a mission as a branch of first Baptist Church. I accepted
this chaftenge with great enthusiasm. I was over whelmed for such a gigantic
task

'We had our first service that Sunday morning at 11:00 am, we were small
in number, but we were not discouraged, because we moved on faith and
on the word of god when lhe said "wherever two or three are gathered
together, touching anything in my name he promised to be in the midst".
Sfrom that day, to this present time, we have seen the wondrous working
power of god. Hte continues to bless us mightily in Cedars. It's amazing,
whatever we ask the Lord for, He grants to us.

five years ago we started this mission and now we are having our sixth
anniversary service to thank the Lord for afl of the blessings he has bestowed
upon us. We have only just begun, there is much land to possess, there are
souls to be rescued, there are souls to save. 'We in Cedar's of Lebanon Union
Baptist Church have a mandate by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and that is "to go in the highways, the byways
and compel them to come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Saviour"

TWe are getting better and better every Sunday, please pray for us, and lend us your support', GOD BLESS YOU!

he t wor Sharing Our Stories:


* By Fr HENRY CHARLES

(This is the second part of a
three-part series on the spiritu-
ality of work. The first article
was published on October 13).
WORK is full of paradoxes. It
frees and liberates us in many
ways. Yet it also binds us and
ties us down to fixed schedules
and timetables.
Work makes a variety of
things more available to us in
greater proliferation; yet we
must make ourselves more
available in the process. We
must work longer hours, bear
greater workloads, and spend
more hours on call, outside of
working hours, and so on.
Work simultaneously enrich-
es and impoverishes. Harder
work means more production
but also more monotony. Work
makes us powerful and at the
same times increases our depen-
dence.
Through work we make
things serve ends that we deter-
mine, yet we grow more depen-
dent on the very things welmake
to serve us.
Work increases our human
sense of worth and achievement.
Modern living comforts, quick
communications, space exploits,
technological innovation are all
achievements we can be proud
of.
Yet mass production and
standardisation suggest some-
times that we ourselves are just
so many sheep following stan-
dardised living patterns imposed
on us by the work of our own
hands.
Again, through work we have
created forces and energies we
can no longer control. Atomic
energy is one of the most strik-
ing of these creations.
What was at first a sign of
ingenuity and creativeness has
become the very symbol of our
inability to control what we have
made. Self-expression through
inventiveness has resulted in the
real possibility of self-destruc-
tion.
From the Protestant Refor-
mation came the notion of work
as a "calling" or "vocation."
This was opposed to the
Catholic notion of calling as per-
taining only to those in religious
life. The conjunction of work
and calling has had the merit of
making work a religious, i.e. not
a purely secular, phenomenon.
Its religious meaning did not
depend on the religious attitude
you brought to work. Religious
meaning was inherent. Luther
thus settled in one stroke some-
thing that still dominates the
religious discussion of work:


FR H CHARLES

how can I bring my faith and
my work together?
Luther's answer was that you
don't have to bring them togeth-
er; they already are. Your work
is your calling, your vocation; it
is there that you serve God most
ordinarily and organically. The
notion, however, has two short-
comings.
First, it implies a singleness
and permanence of vocation
that no longer corresponds to
much of human work experi-
ence. Luther did not envisage
that many "callings" are possible
in a single life, as more and
more people have discovered,
or are discovering. Secondly, the
vocational understanding of
work as calling has not been
sensitive to the potential of work
for dehumanising and alienat-
ing people.
The emphasis on staying
where you were called overrode
every, other consideration -.or
better, blocked the emergence
of any other perspective.
One may take any of three
approaches to a theology or a
spirituality of work, or better,
have a perspective that gives
varying weight and attention to
three dimensions.
As I indicated last week, a
negative view of work has dom-.
inated its understanding histor-
ically. To this corresponds what
we may call the penitential per-
spective.
Work is a punishment for sin.
Before the Fall work is part of
God's plan for creation, Adam
is put in the garden to "till it
and keep it" (Gen 2:15 ). Work
was a constituent feature of
human existence.
After the Fall, there's a dras-
tic change. Yahweh cries out:
"Cursed is the ground because
of you; in toil you shall eat all
the days of your life; thorns and
thistles it shall bring forth to
you; and you shall eat the plants
of the field. In the sweat of your
brow you shall eat bread, till
you return to the dust, for out of
it you were taken ."
Note that the curse falls pri-


marily on the soil, the work field
assigned to human beings to cul-
tivate. Work, which should have
been a purely humanising activ-
ity, now becomes painful.
Work is hard. Humans dis-
cover with difficulty the powers
of nature and the energies that
go into the formation of the
world.
The Bible thus sees a connec-
tion between disobedience and
the oppressiveness, fatigue,
drudgery, and labouriousness of
work.
A second approach is the cre-
ationist view. Humans also have
a mandate to be stewards of the
earth, to cultivate and take care
of it ( 2:15 ).
Work is co-creative activity,
cooperation with God in the
continuing act of creation. We
are free to shape and determine
creation as something that has
been entrusted to us. In the
exercise of this responsibility we
act in the "image" of God.
In both accounts of creation
in Genesis we see different
aspects of creation itself as work.
In the first account there is the
joyous surprise of God when he
sees the final result of his cre-
ativity. "God saw everything
that he had made, and behold it
was very good (1:31).
In the second account God
makes the human being propri-
etor of the garden, committing
him to the work that maintains
God's own work. In naming
things the human being is a part-
ner with God in bringing things
into existence and conferring
meaning on them.
The big value of the second
account is its dynamism and pos-
itive character, in contrast to the
resignation that stems from the
penitential view. The second
view also embraces an evolu-
tionary perspective. Human col-
laboration with the divine plan is
an ongoing activity.
A third view of work departs
from the Second Coming, with
its vision of a new heaven and a
new earth. One may interpret
this in either of two ways: first,
in the sense of a complete dis-
ruption between the work of our
hands and the new creation.
From this point of view, the
new creation is completely and
entirely God's doing. One may
also see the newness in terms of
continuity, mysterious as this
must remain.
In this perspective, the fruit
of our labour, in all the forms
that this assumes, will form part
of the new heavens and new
earth. The value of work is hot
destructible. It is something
caught up for ever in the plan of
God for creation.


Discovering





Our Heroes


* By REV ANGELA
PALACIOUS

.MR C Robinson's funeral
was a most touching and
wonderful celebration of a
great life and acknowledg-
ment of the depth of the loss
of one with so much love to
give. He was an obvious
hero for many persons.
What made it even more
poignant for me was that he
died at 94 just as my father
had done in 2002.
It is a humbling thing to
observe the cycle of human
life and realise that forces
beyond our control bring us
full circle.
Up to several months
before his death, my father
was witty and sharp and yet
so playful and gently affec-
tionate. He, who had the
dignity of a man and wisdom
of a sage, was now in some
ways like my baby: The pil-
lows in the hospital bed here%
at home reminded me of the
bumpers in my son's crib;
between the mouthfuls of
food spooned on "weak"
days, there was the toothless
grin; bathing and dressing
were all blessed moments of
ministry to one who once
stood over six feet tall. Bent
with age, his head against
mine, or shoulder to shoul-
der, arms wrapped around
each other's waists, we'shuf-
fled along the hall.
Who was I for him? At
times I was the mother from
whom he hid the uneaten
food in little bags he would
throw away secretly. I was
, the dutiful daughter who fol-

lowed instructions when his
tone shifted and he tem-
porarily re-established, his
authority. I was the loving
servant who saw Christ in
the face of an ancient par-
ent, whose modem mind dis-
cussed world events and
local talk with the same ease
as he recalled lamp-lighters
extinguishing street lights at
dawn, and maiden flights of
airplanes to sleepy island vil-
lages. Able to list the names
of all his classmates' eighty-
plus years ago, he surpassed
my memory searching to
recall my long forgotten
friends.
On occasion, as I stood
quietly at the foot of the bed
to see if there was any sign
of breathing, I wondered:
"How will I release you back
to God?" In time, I came to
know how a motherly
daughter feels when it is
time to say farewell to one
who had opened his heart to
us and allowed us to see who
he really was, a true hero in
his own way.
We do not always have
the time to prepare for
death, and we do not always
live to see old age. None of
us know the day or the hour
that we will die. Do you
have a will, life insurance
and a possible guardian for
young children? Do you
have a plan in place to care
for aging parents? Let us do
all that we can to find joy in
the present, seek hope for
the future and learn wisdom
from the past. Do not wait
until it is too late to love
your heroes.

boils to afflict the man's physical body.
Let us not hasten to judge the wife too quickly without considering that during the first set of troubles,
both the man and his wife were collectively afflicted by the loss of their possessions and offspring.
However, in this matter it appears that Job isolated his feelings from her when the attack was
personally directed at him. Harold St. John rightly comments concerning Louise Haughton's thoughts
relative to the matter, "As long as job's wife could share in his sorrows she bore up bravely, but as
soon as he enters a fresh chamber of suffering and leaves her outside, then she breaks down: for
her, the intolerable woe is, that, which she is forbidden to share with him."
The .account of the patriarch job called into question the Godly character of God from the five
participants in the book: Job, Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar and Elihu. Job once he is afflicted; is visited
by his friends, whose original intent was to comfort him, but soon wound up debating among
themselves, reasons for his condition. Is there any wonder, then, why Job refers to his friends as
'miserable comforters?' In times of great distress and unbearable sorrow, a troubled man should
look to Jesus, a 'Balm in Gilead.' Job declares his innocence throughout the book, and indirectly
sought to accuse God for his dilemma. As the debates progresses, Job's understanding concerning
God increases more and more, despite the miserable counsels of his friends.
The narrative is designed to bring 'peace of mind' to persons who anguish over whether their suffering
is the result of God's punishment, which many times, may not be the case. It also relieves the guilty
conscience from imagined sins, when one is faced with painful events. What happened to Job clearly
demonstrates a righteous person may be completely innocent and still be made to suffer pain and
anguish. The point we make here, is this, do not beat yourself too hard, because nobody but God
knows what God is doing when you experience difficult times in your life.
Once Job and his friends ;had exhausted all debate without satisfactorily resolving the question of
the reason of his afflictions; God intervened and crushed all previous arguments, considered 'words
of wisdom' spoken in His Name. All who thought they knew God, whether they spoke innocently,
experientially, observationally, religiously, anciently, legalistically, or academically, proved themselves
presumptuous, because they failed to consider the Immutability, Omnipotence, and Sovereignty of
God.
zSo Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the
Lord commanded them; for the Lord had accepted Job. The Lord restored Job's losses when he
'prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before." Job 42: "Now
the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep,
,six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. He also had
seven sons and three daughters. After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his
children and grandchildren for four generations. Job dipd, old and full of days."
We wish to interject these appropriate words from Andreae, more recently quoted by Otto Zockler,
"The same storm which on the ,one side is sent upon the lands for punishment and destruction; is
at the same time appointed on the other side to bless them abundantly, and to make them fruitful.
Thus, even the judgments of God are ever to be regarded as at the same time a source out of which
divine grace distils forth."

Message
b%
T he .President of the
Bahamas Christian
Council
Dr. WILLIAM

THOMPSON
I would like to thank Bahamas Awakening 2005 &
Beyond Committee for their leadership in an
initiative aimed at our men, which, I sincerely
believe will-turn-out-to be the most exciting and
nation changing move of God that our country has
ever experienced.
Bahamas "Awakening" 2005 & Beyond is a
partnership launched under the auspices of the
Bahamas Christian CQuncil between the men of
the Christian Church of The Bahamas and Promise
Keepers International. This initiative will be
ongoing and is being established to create a
spiritual awakening among the men of The
Bahamas that will lead thermto a discovery and an
acceptance their-responsibility to model Godly
living.
I'm sure you will all agree with me that it is past time
for the men of the Church throughout all of The
Bahamas to wake up and to take appropriate
..ct.. addressikthe hrrds 6f I t -i i
nation.
The vision of Bahamas Awakening is to see the
men of The Bahamas spiritually transformed. Our
mission is to mobilize and unite the men of the
Church to model Godly living aswe reach out to the
men and boys of the nation. We have adopted the
Seven Promises of Promise Keepers and are
using them to establish the following goals:
1. To see the men of The Bahamas
committed to fearing God, leading to repentance,
salvation and a commitment to honor Jesus Christ
through worship, prayer and obedience to God's
word in the power of the Holy Spirit.
2. To see the men of The Bahamas
committed to pursuing vital relationships with other
men, understanding that they need brothers to
help them keep their promises.
3. To see the men of The Bahamas
committed to practicing spiritual, moral, ethical and
sexual purity.
4. To see the men of The Bahamas
committed to building strong marriages and
families through love, protection and biblical.
values.
5. To see the men of the Bahamas
committed to support the mission of their churches
by honoring and praying for their church leaders
and by giving of theirtime and resources.
6. To see the men of The Bahamas
committed to reach beyond any ethnic, national
and denominational barriers in a way that
demonstrates the power of biblical unity.
7. To see the men of The Bahamas
committed to changing their world by being
obedient to the great commandment and the great
commission.
How do we seek to accomplish the goals? It's
going to take the united efforts of all of the men of
the Church in all of The Bahamas and the men of all
other civic and social organizations where our
young men and older men are represented. We are
seeking to secure the full support and participation
of every Pastor, Church, Men's Ministry Leaders,
every man of every Church and every man of eve .
organization throughout the length and breadth of
The Bahamas at the National Solemn Assembly
and The Awakening event on Friday November 11
and Saturday November 12.
We are also be seeking the financial support of our
Churches, civic and social organizations,
individuals and the business community to assist
us in covering the cost of this massive undertaking.
My fellow men of The Bahamas, let us all join
together and recommit to the values that
distinguishes us as a people of God, so that we
may accomplish the will of God to see our men, our
marriages, our families, our churches, our
communities and our nation spiritually awakened
and transformed by God's Holy Spirit.


- WHAT IS



AWAKENING?


What Is Bahamas Awakening 2005 and Beyond?
Bahamas "Awakening" 2005 and Beyond is an initiative of the Christian Church
men of The Bahamas launched under the auspices of the Bahamas Christian
Council between in partnership with Promise Keepers International. Bahamas
Awakening was established for the purpose of creating a spiritual awakening
among the men of The Bahamas that will lead.them to a discovery and an
#jeptance their God glyen responsibilityt moGdeGoly living.

What Is Promise Keepers?
Promise Keepers, Christian movement for men in which began in 1990, when Bill
McCartney, then head football coach at the University of Colorado, expressed to a
friend his dream of filling stadiums with Christian men. From that beginning,
Promise Keepers has encouraged men to keep promises made to God, their
families, and their churches through rallies held in sports stadiums across
America. Promise Keepers states that the organization seeks to unite Christian
men across racial, socioeconomic, and cultural lines. Members believe that by
gathering and worshiping together, men can help one another learn to devote
more time to their wives and children. Promise Keepers marked its 10th
anniversary in the year 2000, having reached more than 3.5 million men through
98 stadium and arena conferences.

How Did All This Come About?
In February 2004, a formal invitation was extended to Promise Keepers by The
Right Honourable Perry G. Christie, Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of The
Bahamas on behalf of the government and the people of The Bahamas to stage a
"friendly invasion of our shores with the message and mission which we know will
ignite a new appreciation in all our people on the responsibilities of Christian
manhood."

The Bahamas Christian Council was charged with the responsibility to facilitate the
"friendly invasion". Since that time a vision to mobilize the men of the Church of
The Bahamas to take the lead in addressing issues related to the men of our nation
has emerged. To launch this initiative, a series of activities have been planned in
cooperation with Promise Keepers International, the highlight of which will be a
"National Solemn Assembly" and ""Awakening" Rally" on Friday and Saturday
November 11 and 12, 2005. The events will have both spiritual and economic
benefits to The Bahamas in that hundreds of Promise Keepers from the United
States is expected to participate

Do Our Men Really Need ASpiritual Awakening?
A casual social review of our country tells the tale that our men are in a crisis
socially, spiritually and morally. In looking at the crisis situation in The Bahamas,
the father of our nation, Sir Lynden Pindling, in one of his final interviews said, if he
had it to do over again, he would make the male crisis in our country a top priority.
There is a need for an awakening among the men our land. Absentee fathers,
among other challenges and short comings in the home, work place, church, civic
and national life, is calling us to a real and meaningful awakening at this time. We
believe that such an awakening can only come about through God inspired
initiatives, activities and programs such as what is being presented by Bahamas
Awakening 2005 & Beyond.

So What Can Church Leaders Do?
Encourage the all the men of your congregation to attend the "National Solemn
Assembly" and "The Awakening Rally" on Friday, November 11 and Saturday,
November 12, beginning at 6 p.m. at Clifford Park.

11 Commit your congregation to prayer for the success of Bahamas
"Awakening" and a move of God that would awaken our men to their
God-given responsibilities as men.
0 Share in the financial cost of this outreach by making a financial
contribution.
0 Provide volunteers to assist with the various jobs that are required to
make this effort a success.
I Use every opportunity to promote the rallies during your Church services
and meetings, your TV and/or radio broadcasts and your Church
bulletins.
0 Clear your calendar so that the rallies may proceed with your support and
without competition.
0 Embrace the opportunity to fellowship with our visiting brothers from the
USA who will travel to Nassau to attend the rallies during the week of
November 7-12. There will be ministry opportunities and People-to-
People opportunities.


When I was invited by Rev. Dr. William Thompson, | |
President of The Bahamas Christian Council late lastyear I I
to Chair a committee to oversee the staging of a Promise
Keepers Rally in The Bahamas, I accepted the invitation as I was convinced that such an event
could be the start of something important that God is wanting to do among the men of The
Bahamas. I knew the powerful and beneficial impact that Promise Keepers has had upon men
across the United States and the transformation that has taken place as men fill football and
baseball stadiums and arenas. I knew about the power of fifty thousand men assembled to
praise God and commit to those values that produce Godly lives and values. So I was excited
bythe prospect of being involved in a process that could have the same impact upon our men.
I believe that the time has come for all good men throughout The Bahamas to wake up and
respond to the alarms that are going off all around us. The alarms .are warnings to the
challenges facing our homes, our communities and our nation.. We are in a fight for our very
souls, a fightwe cannot afford to loose. It is time forall of us to wake up.
The Bahamas Awakening 2005 & Beyond Committee which was established under the
auspices of The Bahamas Christian Council will partner with Promise Keepers International
and conduct a major men's Rally at Clifford Park November 11-12,2005.
Bahamas Awakening was established for the purpose of creating a spiritual awakening
among the men of The Bahamas that will challenge them to recommit to the Biblical values
and way of living that will result in spiritual transformation and peace in our land.

Two significant events are planned for Clifford Park to mobilize our men to action. The first is a
National Solemn Assembly that will start at 6 pm on Friday, November 11, where the men of
the Bahamas assemble at Clifford Park to confess before the Lord the sins of the men of our
nation, seek His forgiveness for our sins and pray for His Divine intervention in causing a
spiritual awakening and transformation to take place in the lives of our men leading eventually'
to healing of our land.

Immediately after the Solemn Assembly, and continuing at 6 pm on Saturday, November 12,
the Bahamas "Awakening" Committee and Promise- Keepers International will co-produce
The Awakening Rally, calling every man to a discovery and an acceptance their God given
responsibility to model Godly living and lead in the transformation of our homes and the nation.

If it is the' desire of your heart to see our nation transformed .by God's power, then make a
promise to" be'piof The Awakening. Joihhands with Bahamas Awakening 2005 & Beyond at
Clifford Park on Friday, November 11 and on Saturday, November 12 for and becomea part of
what God is about to do in our midst.
