Criminals 'could Recovering from Hurricane Wilma

use Halloween

as opportunity

for robberies'


N By PAUL G
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
WITH Halloween
approaching, police are con-
cerned about a possible spike
in violent crime over the
weekend and are encouraging
the public to be vigilant.
During a press conference
at police headquarters yester-
day, police and fire safety offi-
cers warned Bahamians to be
cautious as criminals could see
the holiday as an opportunity
to commit robberies or vio-
lent crimes under the guise of
Halloween camaraderie.
Press liaison officer Inspec-
tor Walter Evans issued a
warning to parents in particu-
lar, telling them that at no
time should they allow their
children to visit homes, espe-
cially of people they do not
know, without being accom-
panied by an adult.
"Monday, October 31, will
be recognised as Halloween,
and during this period a num-
ber of persons will be partici-
pating and visiting homes. But
if persons want to participate
(in trick or treating) they
should visit homes of persons
they know and within their
neighbourhood.
"For children who are par-
ticipating in Halloween, neigh-
bourhood watch teams should
be established and a time
frame allotted for trick or
treating," he said.


Inspector Evans said police
will be on patrol during Hal-
loween and asked that com-
munities form "watch teams"
to ensure their homes and
children are safe during the
holiday.
Also of concern was the
threat of damage to homes
and property as a result of fire
from the use of fireworks,
which are a common part of
the Halloween festival.
Inspector Harry Williams,
officer in charge of licences at
police headquarters, encour-
aged parents to supervise their
children if they are handling
fireworks.
Although some of the more
dangerous fireworks cannot
be bought without a pyrotech
licence, Inspector Williams
stressed the importance of
safety with handling any fire-
works, even those bought over
the counter.
"Persons lighting fireworks
in the streets and causing dis-
turbances in communities can
be charged under the nuisance
and disturbance act.
"Therefore we would
encourage persons not to light
these off in their backyard
and find an open field some-
where.
"But if we get a complaint
from someone in the area of
the noise, and we find the per-
sons setting the fireworks off,
we can charge them once
there is a complaint," he
said.

Government 'good at averting strikes'


2 By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE government of the
Bahamas has been successful in
preventing many possible
strikes and demonstrations in
terms of dealing with industrial


agreements, said Minister of
Labour Vincent Peet yesterday.
According to Mr Peet, the
demonstration held by over 300
Bahamas Public Service Union
(BPSU) members on Wednes-
day was "rather unfortunate".
"It is clearly the preferred


position to negotiate behind
doors in a room where you can
make constructive suggestions
and decisions," he said. "How-
ever, sometimes it spills onto the
street which is really and should
always be the last resort."
On Wednesday over 300


members of the BPSU demon-
strated in front of the House of
the Assembly claiming to have
been "tricked and misled" by
government in terms of their
new industrial proposal.
However, Minister of Foreign
Affairs Fred Mitchell, who is also
responsible for the public ser-
vice, could not understand the
need for the demonstration as
negotiations had only just began.
Continuing on the issue of the
agreement yesterday, Mr Peet
said that he hopes that such
issues can be dealt with by
negotiations in private rather in
the street.
He said in countries where
there is a more advanced indus-
trial relations system demon-
strations and strikes hardly ever
occur.
"Most .people realize the
effect of those things on the
national economy, and on the
lack of productivity," he said.
Mr Peet said that "it's impor-
tant to always have a controlled
environment for negotiations,
the government has endeav-
oured to do that, and I think
that over the last three years
we have been successful in con-

taining many of these issues."
Negotiations with the Public
Service Union continued yes-
terday as both sides tried to
resolve their differences.
John Pinder, President of the
Bahamas Public Service Union
(BPSU), is leading the team for
the union in talks with govern-
ment's negotiating committee,
which includes technical repre-
sentatives from the Public Ser-


vice, Finance, Education and
National Security, among oth-
ers.
Speaking to the press yester-
day Keith Archer, a consultant
to the government committee,
said that negotiations went well
and that he expects them to
continue in such a manner.
Mr Archer could not say
when the negotiations would be
completed.

Managers union officially


recognised by government


* By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Public Managers
Union, which is to represent
Bahamasair, has been officially
recognized by the Department
of Labour.
Speaking at the signing of the
official recognition agreement
yesterday, Minister of Labour
Vincent Peet said that this is
indeed a special occasion.
"This provides an opportuni-
ty for both the management
union and the board to become
the model partners in terms of
how negotiations are done," he
said.
"And to bring industrial
agreements into the twenty-first
century we both, the board,
management and the union


realise and recognize that you
are all in the same boat or in
the same plane."
This agreement is the first of
its kind in the Bahamas for
managers of this sort, said
Bahamasair Chairman Basil
Sands.
"We have such a unique
opportunity to sign this recog-
nition agreement of any kind,"
he said.
"I think this is an occasion
that I will cherish, and I hope
that at the end of the day both
managers and staff and all of
Bahamasair will recognize that
this is for the betterment of the
,people concerned.'" :
Mr Sands said that over the
past several years he has recog-
nized that the managers of
Bahamasair have not benefited


to the extent that the other
members of Bahamasair. i
"It is unfortunate but what I
will represent to them today is
that the board will try to ensure
that they are not entirely left
out," he said.
According to Elton Gibsoni
president of the managers
union, negotiations for the
union's industrial agreement are.
to begin shortly as they have
already submitted their pro-
posal.
"It has been a long and some,
times tumultuous draft, but am
so happy that we have come to
this day to give the managers
of Bahamasair representation
but we look forward to having;
hopefully a good, smooth indus-
trial contract negotiations," he
said.

Jobless

numbers

up while

average

income

down


By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE Bahamian labour force
experienced growth while
household incomes decreased
by more than $700 per annum,
preliminary reports from the
2005 labour force survey
revealed.
The labour force (all persons
15 and over who are either
employed, temporarily idle, or
unemployed and seeking
employment) grew by 1.3 per
cent.
While there was a slight
increase in the number of peo-
ple without jobs (185 more per-
sons listed as unemployed than
the year before), it did not
impact on the unemployment
rate, which remained at 10.2 per
cent.
However, there was a noted
difference 'when the figures
were examined according to
gender.
The unemployment rate for
women showed a slight increase
and the unemployment rate for
men a slight decrease.
It was estimated that the
average household income was
$38,891; $735 lower than the
2004 figure of $39,626.
Cyprianna Winters, a statisti-
cian with the Department of
Statistics said that a reason for
this could be that persons who
were laid off or fired may have
settled for lower paying jobs'
when seeking to be re-
employed.
"Women are more likely to
remain unemployed for shorter
amounts of time because they
are more likely to take a low
paying job;" she said..-
The average household
income of households headed
by women remained consider-
ably lower than those headed
by men ($33,241 compared to
$42,416).
Mrs Winters said that this is
the case because men tend to
make more than their female
counterparts.
Female-headed households
accounted for 33 per cent of
total household income.
In 2005 the number of pri-
vate households in the Bahamas
was estimated to be 101,485; an
increase of 1.6 per cent over the
99,865 recorded in 2004.
The annual labour force and
household survey was conduct-
ed during May and sought to
obtain information on the
labour force, households and
household income.
The results show that of the
2,375 persons added to the
labour force in 2005, most were
women (1,485 compared to 890
men).
All the results represent the
preliminary findings of the 2005
survey and may vary from the
final estimates.
The final report, which will
provide more detailed informa-
tion, will be available in early
November, officials said.


Bahamian

consulate

reopened

THE Bahamian Consulate
General in Miami has been
reopened, the Ministry of For-
eign Affairs announced.
The Consulate had been
closed as the building was with-
out electricity and other utili-
ties after the passage of hurri-
cane Wilma on Monday.
The Bahamian Consulate in
Miami can be contacted on
(305) 373-6295.


Mitchell denies




avoiding unions


FOREIGN Affairs and Pub-
lic Service Minister Fred
Mitchell yesterday denied asser-
tions that he. snuck through the
back door of the House of
Assembly to avoid angry BPSU
protesters on Wednesday.
The accusations were report-
edly made by John Pinder, pres-
ident of the Bahamas Public
Service Union, during the
union's mass anti-government
demonstration outside the
House of Assembly.
Mr Pinder was quoted in
another daily as saying: "We
were trying to see Mr Mitchell
but apparently he sneaked in
through a back door."


In statement yesterday, Mr
Mitchell said: "I have never
sneaked anywhere in my life and
I do not intend to begin now.
"Everyone knows that I am a
very punctual person. The
House of Assembly starts at
10am, so I am always at my
desk in the House by 9.30 am
ready for the start of business.
Mr Mitchell said that accord-
ing to information he received,
the protesters arrived at
10.45am.
"I cannot help it if people
won't get out of their beds to
make it to a demonstration
which is supposed to begin at 10.
"When the police officer


brought the message that Mr
Pinder wanted to see me, it was
well after midday. The House
was then in session.
"I asked Frank Carter, the
industrial consultant for the
government, who was in the
House to go downstairs and
inquire of Mr Pinder what in
particular he wished to discuss;
since I was working at the
House of Assembly."
"Finally, I would state the
obvious: there is no back door
in the House of Assembly
through which to sneak. Again,
I have never sneaked anywhere
in my life and I do not intend to
begin now," Mr Mitchell said.


Private firms donate

to hurricane relief


FREEPORT The Grand
Bahama private sector is
responding to Prime Minis-
ter Perry' Christie's call for
aid to hurricane victims on
Grand Bahama.
Commonwealth Bank on
Wednesday donated $10,000
to the Grand Bahama centre
of the Bahamas Red Cross
to assist persons devastated
by Hurricane Wilma.
Mavis Burrows, area vice-
president for operations,
said the bank felt an obliga-
tion to extend a helping
hand following the devasta-
tion in Grand Bahama.
"We sincerely pray and
hope that Grand Bahama
will' pool its resources to
bring a sense of normality
to Grand Bahama in a very
shojf time," she said.
Other local companies
and groups have also joined


in the relief efforts by deliv-
ering food, water, and cloth-
ing to residents of Pinder's
Point, Hunters, and Eight
Mile Rock.
The destruction caused by
Wilma has left many home-
less in various communities
along the southern coast.
During a tour of the Pin-
der's Point area on Tuesday,
Perry Christie noted that large
numbers of Haitian immi-
grants and their Bahamian-
born children were affected.
The financial burden of
hurricane destruction will
Again fall on the govern-
ment, as most of the persons
affected are poor and have
no home insurance.
The other communities
affected by the storm were
Williams Town, Mack
Town, Lewis Yard, Dead-
man's Reef and Bootle Bay.

cane Wilma.
Speaking to the press yes-
terday, Senate President
Sharon Wilson said: "We all

ment of families, the total
devastation of homes and
yes, even the death of an
infant."
"Many children, hundreds
of them, lost everything that
make up their daily experi-
ences books, toys, school
supplies and games every-
thing," she said.
"We therefore ask all who
are able to, to bring gifts for
the children of Grand
Bahama who have suffered
loss."
Reflecting on the devasta-
tion, Mrs Wilson said: "The
hopelessness, helplessness,
pain and devastation left
behind in Grand Bahama in
wake of Hurricane Wilma
and the forceful tidal surges
should force us all to stop

Unions being irresponsible


IT IS common knowledge that the civil ser-
vice is bloated, inefficient and in many sectors
overpaid. It is also common knowledge that
within that overgrown body there are many
efficient, conscientious, well-trained and hard-
working employees who are worth every pen-
ny that the public pays them. They are the
ones who keep the public wheels in motion,
but they cannot do it all.
And so when we criticise the civil service
and BEC unions, we are not targeting those
government employees who are giving honest
service to the citizens of this country. Nor are
we against unions as such. However, we are
certainly against irresponsibility, and today
we believe that many union leaders lack both
sensitivity and responsibility. Politicians can be
blamed for this. They have so courted and
pampered unionists in return for their votes
at the polls that today union leaders believe
all they have to do is stamp their feet, stab the
air with their fists and push placards in peo-
ple's faces to get exactly what they want. It
always worked in the past. But it can't work
today without breaking this country's fragile
economy.
Whatever the poor of Freeport possessed
was swept away this weekend by the crashing
waves of Hurricane Wilma. Whatever gov-
ernment can spare will have to go to help
rebuild these people's lives. Yet in the midst of
all of this misery and turmoil for both people
and government, shameless union leaders
marched on parliament square Wednesday to
demand more money for their members.
Where is this extra money to come from?
Prime Minister Perry Christie has hinted
that their demands could upset government's
fiscal policy. In its report last year the Inter-
national Development Bank noted that the
Bahamas "now faces pressing infrastructure
needs, from repairing hospitals to upgrading
airports, from overhauling the water and sew-
erage infrastructure to constructing sufficient
pre-school capacity."
If the Treasury could not meet civil ser-
vants' demands before Hurricane Wilma, how
is it expected to meet them now? In disasters
of this kind, the Bahamas has always looked to
the United States for assistance. But America
has suffered its own catastrophic disasters, in
addition to trying to assist in the tragedy left by
the recent India and Pakistan earthquake.
This large and generous country now has more
on its hands than even it can handle. This is
once the Bahamas will have to look after itself.:


In the House on Wednesday, Minister Fred
Mitchell, who is responsible for the civil ser-
vice, could not understand the need for the
union's public protest. Negotiations, he said,
had only just started.
Maybe both he and Prime Minister
Christie- who admits that he fought against
legislation that the Ingraham administration
tried to introduce in 2000 to curb irresponsible
unions now understands what Mr Ingra-
ham meant when he told the House:
There are too many instances where con-
tract negotiating unions have staged strikes, sit
outs, sick outs and the like without having
exhausted all mediating avenues.
The proposed legislation was intended to
bring responsibility back to the negotiating
table and take discord off the streets. But Mr
Christie did not see the wisdom then. He prob-,
ably wishes he had the legislation now.
For example, the rumpus caused by the
BEC union before expiry of its present con-
tact, could not have happened if that piece of
legislation had been on the statute books.
Under the proposed legislation labour lead-
ers would be held responsible for illegal strikes
and would have to pay out of their own pock-
ets not union funds any court fines levied
on them for industrial action taken outside
of the la w and outside of the' ifis of their
contract, ...
Employers are calling for that legislation to
be passed.
Mr Christie has admitted that government
has run consistent fiscal deficits since it took
office in 2002, showing little sign of getting
to grips with ever-increasing expenditures,
particularly recurrent expenditure which goes
on wages, emoluments and rent. He said the
Central Bank has reported that the fiscal
deficit for 2004-2005 was likely to be around
$160 million, little different from 2003-2004.
Government has to start cutting back, it
cannot afford to continue spending. And when
it does spend it must realise a return on its out-
lay.
Mr Christie should seriously reconsider
resurrecting the legislation that he was instru-
mental:in having shelved in 2000. And if the
unions keep pressing with unreasonable
demands, government will eventually be
forced to do what should have been done
many years ago prune the civil service to a
manageable, workable size. Government could
then afford to pay higher wages to a smaller,
work-oriented group of public employees.


EDITOR, The Tribune
I JUST returned from a two
week vacation on Saturday,
October 22, and very soon after
getting home, there was cause
for me to immediately get on
the word processor. Why, you
ask? Well, before I left town
(Marsh Harbour) to head
home, I stopped at a grocery
store for a few things, and on
my way out, I grabbed a new
Abaconian newspaper to take
home to read. The assumption
was that I would get home, sit
down and relax, and read my
paper.
Well, all of that was going as
planned for the most part, until.
I got to the letters to the editor
where I read a letter about an
article that appeared in the
Florida Sportsman Magazine
detailing how one (American)
might go about finding and tak-
ing crawfish from habitats that
Bahamian fisherman built and
set. I. found said article online,
and I share a quote with you
from it:
"The Bahamas Ministry of
Tourism stated that as long as
the season is open, the lobsters.
you find on the bank are open
to everyone. With that said, I'm
sure the Bahamians would
rather you didn't take lobster
from the habitats, but we saw
several locals diving in the area
and they didn't seem to mind. It
was clear they weren't having
any problem getting their share
of the lobsters".
The article went on to explain
how to find the best areas for
crawfish, and how it was so
much nicer to run the short dis-
tance, across the gulfstream to
the Bahama Bank, than it is to
drive 188 miles to the Florida
Keys towing a boat trailer
behind you.
The article did include
Bahamian law guidelines such
as bag limits; size of crawfish
that could be taken; no scuba
gear allowed in the taking of
crawfish; that boaters must have
a valid Bahamas cruising per-
mit; etc, etc.
While the article did not sug-
gest to me an attitude of disre-
spect for Bahamian law, but
rather a mere exercising of that
which is permitted by Bahamian
law, we all know that for years
now there are those American
boaters who come over from
Florida every year to the
Bahama Bank, and to Abaco,
with the sole intention of help-
ing themselves to as much as
they please of our very precious
commodity crawfish, and what
this article does, albeit in an


innocent manner, is to further
promote the taking of crawfish
from our waters. We have
enough problems already with
Bahamians fishing illegally.
We all know that not all
Americans, or any other
nationality for that matter,
should be judged by the actions
of a few bad apples in their
national basket, but we also
know that there are those
Americans who think we
Bahamians are.-hexre-or.their-
pleasure only, and will show no
respect for us or any laws gov-
erning the taking of crawfish.
There have been those Bahami-
an fishermen who have been
bitching and complaining for
years to our government to do
something about this very vex-
ing problem. To date, these
complaints have obviously fall-
en on deaf, or at least indiffer-
ent ears.
My assumption as to the inac-
tion of successive governments
on this problem, has always
been that the government of the
day, whomever they happened
to be at the time, were afraid
to address this situation due to
the perceived damage to our
tourism industry. I dare say that
there will be little if any dam-
age.
As for me, if those individuals
who are stealing our crawfish
could somehow disappear, we
wouldn't miss them or the few
dollars they spend here at all.
The boaters who are.really
spending the money in the
Bahamas are those who respect
our laws, and incidentally, who
don't mind the recent increase
in cruising permits, even though
I was initially opposed to that
increase. I now believe it to be a
necessary move.
I am not one given to melo-
dramatics or exaggeration, but I
can really envision this whole
sordid affair getting out of hand.
I can see the situation getting
to the point where some
Bahamian is going to threaten
an illegally fishing American -
actually it has happened already
a few times and there is
going to be bloodshed because
we all know that Americans are
big on gun ownership some-
thing that I am not opposed to
generally speaking and most,
if not all American boats have
weapons aboard.
There is going to be a dead
American or Bahamian in the


future in my opinion, if this sit-
uation is not addressed with the i
utmost vigour and determinar,
tion to bring it under controL

assist us to this end, seeing as 4e
seemingly are not organised'or;-
equipped sufficiently to address
it in a manner that will enforced
our laws while protecting otirs
reputation as a preferred tourist"1
destination.
I completely understand, andi'
sympathise with those Baharti-
ans who have reached their witsO
end in relation to this problem'.-
I encourage them all to do their-
best to restrain from taking the,
law into their own hands.
_ While -I myself -am ..the._typ':

such a thing, it ultimately always,
ends poorly.
We must unite to continu6eto'
pressure our government to aet.'
Bahamians are not people wha.
seemingly understand the con-f
cept of government. The gov-
ernment works for us. We don't
have to take any crap fr.din
them.
However, in order for .ur
voice to be effective,itn mustbe
heard in great numbers. Thdre
is power in numbers. So, allow
me to implore my Bahan'an
brothers and sisters to raise as
much hell as you possibly can
without getting arrested.. This
problem is not only one for ffih-
ermen. 'a
This is a Bahamian proble.it
The time may come however,'
when getting arrested might' be
the only way to get some atteiIa
tion. God forbid that we should.
come to that point. It is never-
theless, nearer than.I care to
admit. ..
Finally, I have e-mailed'thfe
Florida Sportsman Magazine,
explaining how we feel about
the taking of crawfish from o.t
waters by foreigners, and asking
them to come to Abaco to inter-
view a few fishermen, so as'to
prove to them that Bahamiads
are really upset about Whai is
going on. Hopefully, there will
be a desire on their part to hdip
us out. ;2,
I should point out that I don't
believe Florida Sportsman Mag-
azine's intention was to spark
an explosion. They quite prob-
ably thought they were merely
sharing some good news with
their subscribers.
Inadvertently they have fur-
ther irritated an already sore
subject.

Family lose home in blaze


* BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT A Lewis
Yard family of seven lost their
home and all their possessions
to fire and are now among
the many Grand Bahamians
left homeless in the wake of
Hurricane Wilma.
After surviving the ravages
of the storm, Oswald Williams
and his grandchildren found
themselves fleeing from their
nine-room concrete home
which caught fire around
7.45am on Wednesday. OSCAR W
According to Police Superin-
tendent Basil Rahming, Mr
Williams was in the kitchen getting water for a
bath when he noticed thick smoke coming from
the northeastern bedroom, which was occu-


pied by his five-year-old grandson.
Mr Williams told police that his
15-year-old granddaughter and the
five-year-old escaped unharmed
from the burning house. His two
other grandchildren were outside
playing in the yard at the time.
Supt Rahming said three fire
engines were dispatched to the
scene and firemen fought the
blaze for two hours.
The home was completely
destroyed and family was unable to
salvage anything from the wreck-
age.
Fire officials suspect that the
lilliams blaze was started accidentally in
the northeastern bedroom, where
the five-year-old was playing alone.
The estimated cost of the damage is
unknown. The home and its contents were
insured.

A BUS driver identified
Angelo Brennen as the person
he saw shoot two females on
October 29 last year.
Brennen is accused of killing
Ruthmae Alfreda Pinder, and
attempting to kill her daughter,
Calvonya Grant, while the vic-
tims stood at a bus stop on Far-
rington Road.
Aaron Woodside told the
court that he was driving his bus
along route 10A on Farrington
Road, when a red Nissan Sentra
stopped in front of him.
He said he saw Brennen get
out of the passenger side.
He said Brennen casually
crossed the street and
approached three females, and
that "there appeared to be an
exchange of words" between
the accused and Ruthmae
Alfreda Pinder.
Mr Woodside said Brennen
took a gun from his waist and
fired shots at the older woman.
After the first shot, he said,
he saw the woman fall to the
ground, while the teenage girl
dropped to her knees and cov-
ered her mother.


* ANGELO Brennen


He said he heard two or three
more shots before Brennen
walked back across the street.
"The driver pulled off at a
normal speed as if nothing had
happened," Mr Woodside told
the court.
Mr Woodside told the court
that he had known Brennen
since the early 1990s, because
when he used to drive the South
Beach Route, Brennen often
rode his bus.
During cross examination,
defence attorney Willie Moss
was able to learn that in his
written statement to police, the
witness never mentioned Bren-
nen. He referred to him only as
"a man".


Friend claims he drove

accused to the scene


A FRIEND of murder
accused Angelo Brennen yes-
terday told how he had driven
him to Farrington Road on the
day of Ruthmae Pinder's death
Leander Culmer told the
court that on the day of Ruth-
mae Pinder's murder he saw
Angelo sometime between
1pm.
He told the court that Bren-
nen was driving red Sentra and
blew his horn to him beckon
him outside.
He said that Brennen asked
him to drive the car, but Lean-
der said that he told him that
he had to stay with his daughter.
To this Brennen replied that he
could bring his daughter along.
Culmer told the court that
Brennen told him that he
"Wanted to catch this girl with a
nigga" and they ultimately end-
ed up on Farrington Road "by
church".


He told the court that two
women and a little girl were
apparently waiting for a bus and
one was approaching. He said
that Brennen pulled out a gun
and got out of the car. Culmer
said that Brennen shot the
woman and that he heard two
to four gunshots.
Culmer said that the other
woman tried to hold Brennen
back. Brennen returned to the
car and instructed him to drive
off. Culmer said that this all
took place while his daughter
was in the back seat of the car.
From there they drove to Kiki
Street off Farrington Road and
Angelo went to a yellow house,
returning several minutes later
handing him the gun and telling
him to dispose of it.
Culmer then told the court
how he had handed the gun -
which he described as black and
a little rusty in to police.

New firearms tracing

programme to aid police

investigations in Bahamas


FROM page one

Royal Bahamas Police Force yesterday.
The eTrace, managed by the United States
Department of Justice's Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, is a firearms
tracing system which allows law enforcement
agencies to submit firearms trace requests, mon-
itor the progress of their traces and access their
results more quickly.
The programme also allows law enforcement
agencies to have direct access to a historical data-
base of any related firearms data.
The computers were presented at the United
States Embassy by US charge d'affaires Brendt
Hardt, who said the move was "the latest in a
long, and continuing line of co-operative
efforts between the United States and the
Bahamas."
Mr Hardt explained that the eTrace pro-
gramme enabled local law enforcement agencies
to track the movement of a recovered firearm


from its first sale and throughout the distribu-
tion chain.
"Tracing firearms in this way helps link sus-
pects in a criminal investigation, identifies poten-
tial weapons traffickers, and uncovers.local and
international patterns in the sources and types
of crime guns," Mr Hardt said.
The system is expected to be implemented in
the coming days and an official from the Depart-
ment of Justice's crime and gun centre in Miami
is expected to train local police on how to effec-
tively utilise the system. The computers will be sit-
uated in New Providence, Grand Bahama and
two of the Family Islands.
Accepting the donation on behalf of the police
was forensic science laboratory superintendent
James Carey, who said he was familiar with the
eTrace system and had been anticipating its
implementation in the Bahamas.
This, he said, would be a significant improve-
ment over present tracing methods. Mr Carey
said it previously usually took weeks to trace
the origin of a firearm.


MiSmith said that when gov-
ernment spends money to
reconstruct it has to look at
whether it is "treating the symp-
tom rather than the cause."
At least 100 homes along the
southern and eastern coasts of
Grand Bahama were destroyed
by Hurricane Wilma.
Still recovering from last
year's double blow of Hurri-
canes Frances and Jeanne, fam-
ilies were hit hard once again
as Wilma lashed the island on
Monday with winds of 96mph
and peak gusts of 119mph.
A scene of destruction faced
residents of coastal areas after
the seson's record 12th hurri-
cane passed Grand Bahama,
witlhhomes destroyed or
severely damaged and ceme-
teriesand roads washed away.
"Terse homes could be hit
again and many who live on the


costing us money to rebuild
homes that we constructed for
persons whose homes were
destroyed the first time
around," he said.
Mr Smith said the effect of
a hurricane on the
economy depended on several
factors.
"It depends on how severe
the storm is, which areas it
affects and how long it will take
to reconstruct. In the case of
Wilma, on the surface, it seems
to have impacted low income
areas and what you have in that
case is a temporary disruption in
your labour force.
"But the places which con-
tribute most to GDP, the areas
of commerce, were not affected
as severely," he said.
While no country can sustain
consistent pummelling from
hurricanes, an economy stands a
better chance of recovery if the


"By including it in the budget
you don't have the case where
you would have to take funds
from one area of the budget to
pay out in subsidies and so
forth.
"What we recommend is to
go back in history and take a
look at the storms of the past
and take an average of what
they cost the country and have
that average as a line item in
the budget," he said.
This, he added, will happen
when the National Emergency
Agency is institutionalised after
the passing of the disaster pre-
paredness bill currently being
debated in parliament.
In addition, while tourism,
the country's main industry, will
more than likely be crippled by
a severe storm, Mr Smith said
that the banking industry may
prove to be more resilient to
such an event.

Storm leaves a


trail of destruction


By DENISE MAYCOCK
:Tribune Freeport
.Reporter
'FREEPORT Hurricane
Wilma has left a trail of
destruction in western settle-
ments along the southern coast
of the island, where many res-
idents are trying to salvage
whatever they can from the
ruins of their homes.
It is'TiiotkibwdiW yet how"-
many persons were left home-
less by the storm, which dev-
astated entire communities
from Mack Town to Bootle
Bay.
Prime Minister Perry
Christie and his entourage
toured the storm-ravaged areas
of Grand Bahama on Tuesday.
He was deeply moved by the
butterr devastation" he saw at
-Pinder's Point, where many
-ihomes were wiped out by a
-ipowerful storm surge.
As Mr Christie made his way
ijfrough the affected areas,
,?torm victims in Pinder's Point,
-Eight Mile Rock and West End
Were busy searching among the
fiins to salvage clothing, food,
mattresses, and furniture from
mountains of debris.

Gusts
-o
Grand Bahama experienced
,ind gusts of more than 100
, iph on Monday as Hurricane
)yilma moved some 80 miles
north of the island.
-: In the Freeport area, canals
'e erflowed into the streets in
6uth Bahamia.
In outlying areas, roofs were
tiown off and homes were flat-
feied by strong winds. The
s orm surge swept away build-
,uigs: and roads, and unearthed
-offis 'at public cemeteries in
variouss settlements along the
'ays.ide.
l There was only one death
:ssociated with the storm. The
b- biody of one-year-old Matario
Jintard, of Hanna Hill, Eight
v':ile Rock, was recovered sev-
eral miles in Hepburn Town,
-1|ight Mile Rock, after he was
swept away by the surge.
I Haitian Charles Edomz, a
President of Pinder's Point, said
.lhe and four others, including
.l4is son and girlfriend, escaped
4'rom the rising sea water that


engulfed his home.
"I hear my son call me and I
see the water come in the
house," he said. "I know the
hurricane was coming, but I not
thinking the water come in so
high."
Mr Edmonz was able to get
his son and girlfriend to higher
ground at another house across
the street.
About 400 residents of Pin-
der's Point were rescued from
rising flood waters and taken
to shelters in Freeport.
Carnard Bethel, undersecre-
tary in the Office of the Prime
Minister, said the greatest
destruction was in Mack Town,
Hunters, Pinder's Point, and
Eight Mile Rock.
He said there was also exten-
sive damage at Deadman's
Reef and Bootle Bay.

Destroyed
Mr Bethel reported that
some 67 buildings in the set-
tlements from Mack Town to
Bootle Bay were destroyed anii"
30 were considered uninhabit-
able.
He noted that the entire
stretch of small shops and busi-
nesses at Sunset Village along
Jones Town, Eight Mile Rock,
were completely wiped out.
Mr Bethel said Social Ser-
vices officials are still out con-
ducting assessments and gath-
ering data in the various affect-
ed settlements.
Even though three shelters
remained open, he reported
that only 50 persons had regis-
tered at the Eight Mile Rock
Gym and 15 at St George's
High School by Tuesday
evening.
He said no one had regis-
tered at Jack Hayward High
School.
"As far as people homeless -
it is very difficult to determine.
We are still gathering informa-
tion, but we believe that'many
people are still in a degree of
shock and do not want to leave
what is left of their homes," he
said.
Mr Bethel said that the
Rotary Club has donated
100 tents, which will be set up
in devastated communities
on southern areas of the
island.

he Public Utilities
Comm is si on
(PUC) has said it
T "impose guaran-
teed service quality schemes"
on the Bahamas Telecommu-
nications Company (BTC),
meaning that inequality will
continue to exist in the
Bahamian fixed-line telecom-
munications market, as the
state-owned operator's sole
legal competitor is already held
to such standards.
In its statement of results on
the public consultation over
BTC's line rental rate increas-
es, which were approved, the
PUC said it was "concerned
about BTC's service quality
and will require BTC to cor-
rect these problems".
The telecommunications sec-
tor regulator added that it
would "address all aspects of
service quality", including fault

A GLOBAL environmental
lobby group has slammed the
approval process for the $175
million Discovery Land Com-
pany project on Abaco's Great
Guana Cay as having "inade-
quate transparency", accusing
the Government of failing to
"act as the real watchdogs of
the public interest".
The Sierra Club, an organi-
sation that claims to have
800,000 members, questioned
in a letter sent to the Save Gua-
na Cay Association, which has
taken legal action to try and
halt the development, why
there seemed to have been


inadequate consultation with
the Bahamian public over the
proposed development.
Development
Michele Perrault, the Sierra
Club's international vice-pres-
ident, said of the Baker's Bay
Golf & Ocean Club develop-
ment: "It serves as an example
of the difficulty the public has
protecting ecological assets in
their own communities when
they have to fight for access,.
deal with inadequate trans-
parency in decision making,
struggle against inadequate
integrated planning and act as
the real watchdogs of the pub-
lic interest where government


has failed in that role in its
eagerness to fulfill the needs
of larger corporate interests."
The Sierra Club executive
questioned why decisions on
investment and development
projects in the Bahamas had
been made "in a vacuum with
no real understanding of the
carrying capacity of either the
infrastructure or of the envi-
ronment".
Other questions raised
included why the Government
had sought to lease 105 acres of
Crown Land and 20 acres of
Treasury Land to the develop-
ers without any apparent pub-

THE Central Bank of the
Bahamas has confirmed the
June 30, 2006, deadline for all
Bahamian commercial banks
to have completed verification
of existing clients' identities
under the Know Your Cus-

Financial Transactions Report-

In its final guidelines on the

business issues


The second in a
two-part series of
free legal clinics
sponsored by the
Halsbury Cham-

Saturday, with numerous
speakers addressing matters
ranging from identity theft to
limits being recommended for
Family Island development.
Experts from the public and
private sector and the firm's
lawyers will participate in the
event at Halsbury Commercial
Centre, located at Village Road
North.
This Saturday's session,
which focuses on business, cor-
porate and financial matters,
follows a similar event last Sat-
urday that drew more than 200
persons, with dozens taking
advantage of private consulta-
tions with the Halsbury Cham-
bers attorneys.
Speakers set for the second
session of Information You
Need for the Life You Want,
include National Planning
Coordinator in the Office of
the Prime Minister, Malcolm
Martini, who will report on
pending recommended guide-
lines for future development,
especially in the Family Islands.
Philip Simon, executive
director at the Bahamas Cham-'
ber of Commerce, will share
information on building busi-
ness through networking in a
new Bahamian business envi-
ronment.
Ehurd Cunningham, secre- .
tary for revenue in the Min-

aging, director of IT & human,


resources, Vaughn Delaney,
will tackle Confidentiality and
Identity Theft; and Terrance
Knowles, chairman of the

tion, will speak on developer
rights and contractor respon-

"We are very
pleased to offer
a first for The
Bahamas- a
complimentary
legal clinic where
information can
be shared, ideas
exchanged and the
barrier that many
perceive between
the legal
fraternity and the
community can
be reduced."

and Kenred Dorsett

sibilities, including tips on how
to ensure the contractor you
hire completes his work..
There will be a special pre-
sentation on labour law at
9.15am, prior to the opening of
Saturday's session, by Court of


Appeal Justice Emmanuel
Osedebay, author of Labour
Laws of The Bahamas.
The clinic opens at 9.45 am.
Interactive discussions and pre-
sentations will end at 1pm, and
lawyers will continue to be
available for consultation until
5pm.
"We are very pleased to
offer a first for The Bahamas -
a complimentary legal clinic
where information can be
shared, ideas exchanged and
the barrier that many perceive
between the legal fraternity
and the community can be
reduced," said the firm's part-
ners, Branville McCartney and
Kenred Dorsett.
"As a relatively young firm,
Halsbury Chambers has been
fortunate to have expanded to
three offices in two countries
and to have been honoured in
being selected to represent the
Bahamas at international legal
forums. This is our way of giv-
ing back to a community that
has given so much to us."
The Saturday morning ses-
sions are intended "to help
answer nagging questions
among persons who, for one
reason or another, stop short
of engaging legal counsel, hop-
ing to find the answers else-
where," the partners said.
"While our team of counsel-
lors and attorneys will be on
hand to answer questions, we
are very pleased to announce
that community leaders from
outside the firm will be partic-
ipating for those who want to
take advantage of the compli-
mentary opportunity to get the
information they need for the
life they want."

However, the Central Bank said it was allow-
ing for "flexibility" in instances where customers
did not have the standard identification docu-
ments. It added that for existing customers, an
introduction from a respected customer per-
sonally known to the m iaa ing'director, man-

comfort".
The banking regulator added: "It is impor-
tant that the elderly, the disabled, students and
minors, or the socially or financially disadvan-


taged should not be precluded from obtaining
financial services just because they do not p6osess
the usual types of evidence of identity or address,
such as a driver's licence or passport where they
cannot reasonably be expected to do so.

The Central Bank called for a "common
sense" approach, particularly for the commercial
banks, adding that in some cases it might be
possible to accept confirmation of identity from
professionals who know the person, such hs a
doctor or lawyer.

reporting and clearance, operator ser-
vices, inaccurate billing and call com-
pletion. The PUC called upon cus-
tomers to file complaints with it if
BTC failed to resolve them.
But the PUC then admitted it was
effectively unable to impose the same
service requirements and standards
on BTC as it was for IndiGo Net-
works, as there was nothing in the
incumbent monopoly's licence to
allow them to be introduced.
The PUC said: "The PUC is in
favour of guaranteed service quality
schemes, similar to those contained
in Systems Resource Group's
[IndiGo's parent] licence.
"However, there is no requirement
in BTC's Interim Licence to allow the
PUC to impose guaranteed service
quality schemes on BTC.
"If guaranteed service quality stan-
dards become necessary they would
have to be introduced in accordance
with Section 12 of the Telecommuni-
cations Act, which deals with modifi-
cation to licences."
The PUC was responding to issues
raised by both IndiGo Networks and
members of the public during the con-
sultation on BTC's line rental rate


increases.
IndiGo had argued that BTC was
essentially manipulating the market,
having voluntarily reduced its long
distance tariffs, and this should not
lead the government-owned corpora-
tion to increase monthly rental rates.
In addition, BTC's legal competitor
argued that its rivals losses on local
calls and access rates was covered by
the profits from its cellular monop-
oly.
In its submission, IndiGo Net-
works' own estimates for BTC's
2004 and 2005 revenues showed that
while fixed-line long distance rev-
enues were likely to have fallen by
26.2 per cent in 2004, dropping to
$47.994 million from $65.018 mil-
lion the previous year, cellular rev-
enues for that year had increased
by almost 24 per cent to $111.767
million.
For 2005, IndiGo Networks was
estimating that BTC's fixed-line
revenues will drop by a further 53
per cent to $22.534 million, but cel-
lular revenues were forecast to rise
25 per cent to $140.177 million.
Since 2000, BTC's cellular revenues
had risen by more than 400 per
cent.
Apart from the service issue, the
PUC generally brushed aside Indi-


Go Networks' concerns rather than
addressing them head on.
The telecommunications sector
regulator said: "It is not unusual in
an environment transitioning from
monopoly to competition for reduc-
tions in long distance rates to be
followed by increases in rates/prices
for telephone lines and vice versa,
all seeking to make prices/rates
more reflective of the cost of pro-
viding the relevant services."

Tariffs
BTC's inter-island and interna-
tional long distance tariffs had
already been decreased by 55 per
cent and 50-69 per cent respective-
ly, and the carrier's request for fur-
ther price reductions was "margin-
al".
As for IndiGo's concern that the
prices for leased circuits and joining
circuits, which interconnect its net-
work with BTC's, would rise as a
result of the rental rate increase,
the PUC said these did not fall
among price regulated services.
It added: "The PUC has no infor-
mation in its possession to substan-
tiate SRG's claim that leased cir-
cuit prices will change because of
changes to the monthly rates/prices


for telephone lines."
The PUC said it knew IndiGo
and BTC were in negotiations over
joining circuits for interconnecting
their networks in Marsh Harbour,
Abaco.
IndiGo had also pointed out that
BTC required customers to pay a
monthly fee of $1.25 for renting
telephone instruments regardless of
whether they came from BTC,
something it said should end. Indi-
Go added that the $0.75 monthly
charge for being listed in.BTC's
telephone directory.
The PUC responded by stating
that BTC's directory listings were
not price regulates, and it was
"quite legitimate" for it to charge
for this service, which was an indus-
try-wide practice. In addition, the
$0.75 charge was only applied when
customers sought an additional list-
ing, getting the first one for free.
However, the PUC agreed with
IndiGo on the equipment fees, say-
ing it was a separate service from
line rental access fees. The regula-
tor added: "Therefore, there is no
legal basis for BTC's practice of
charging monthly rate for any type
of [equipment] or office and domes-
tic apparatus intended for connec-
tion to public networks.


"Any such payment must be
agreed with the customer. ;Whe
this is not done, the customer may
file a specific complaint with the
PUC."
BTC's rental rate increases will take

$15 from $9.50, and business ritias
from $20 to $36 per month, increases

The PUC said that at the new pr,
a residential subscriber making no
long distance calls would pay $15 per
month, about 1.1 per cent of GDP per
capita per month. For someone on a
minimum wage of $150 per week, the
new rate would be 2.5 per cent of
average monthly income, which th i
PUC said was at the lower end -of
worldwide average telecommunila
tions spending, between 2-6 per cen.
In approving the line rental rAt6
increase, the PUC said BTC's current
line rental rates and prices were beloW
the combined cost for access and local
calls. This, though, was "at risk" frqi

Bahamas Supermarkets in 24.6% profit increase


FROM page 1B
from it.
Meanwhile, the company
attributed the 7.8 per cent or
$9.5 million sales growth during
fiscal 2005, which reached
$132.1 million, to the impact
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne
had on its competitors, partic-
ularly in Grand Bahama, which
is likely to be a reference to
the damage suffered by
Solomon's SuperCentre there.
The sales comparisons were
up against a 53-week year in
2004, and when the extra week
was stripped out, Bahamas
Supermarkets saw an $11.9 mil-
lion or 9.9 per cent increase
over 2004.
Gross profits rose by $2.7
million or 8 per cent over the
previous year, but as a per-
centage of sales they were rel-
atively flat, reaching 27.1 per


cent in 2005 as compared to 27
per cent in 2004.
Bahamas Supermarkets said:
"The increase in gross profit as
a percentage of sales was pri-
marily due to a reduction in
inventory shrink. This factor
was partially offset by increas-
es in net warehousing and dis-
tribution costs and the compa-
ny's investment in promotion
and pricing to drive market
share."
Operating expenses, though,
increased by $1.1 million or 4.1
per cent from the previous
year, largely due to rising utili-
ty, payroll supply and adminis-
trative expenses. However, the
sales increase ensured that
admninistrative expenses as a
percentage of sales fell in 2005,
dropping to 21.2 per cent as
opposed to 21.9 per cent.
Meanwhile, Winn-Dixie's
$691 million loss for fiscal 2005


was a heavy drop from 2004's
$51 million loss.
Winn-Dixie president and
chief executive Peter Lynch, in
an internal e-mail to employees
said: "Quite simply, fiscal 2005
was the most difficult year in
Winn-Dixie history.
"We are not however look-
ing backward, but instead we
are focusing our energy on the
future."
The filing lists a gain of
$148.29 million from reorgani-
sation. The largest component
of that increase was $185.6 mil-
lion in non-cash income from
the rejection of store leases.
The total was reduced by
expenses that included $23 mil-
lion for lawyers, real estate
agents and other professionals.
Winn-Dixie also-reported a 4-i
per cent decline in identical
store sales in fiscal 2005 '"
The company attributed the


decline to competitor store
openings, competitor pricing
and the conditions of its stores.
Burt P. Flickinger III, man-
aging director of Strategic
Resources Group in New
York, who follows supermar-
ket trends, was disturbed by
the huge loss.
"The company is not out of
the woods just yet and to lose
so much money may not be a
good barometer for next year,"
Mr Flickinger said. "It doesn't
seem able to stop the bleed-
ing."
He noted that Winn-Dixie
still faces severe competitive
pressures from Wal-Mart
Supercentres and Publix.
"Winn-Dixie is caught in that
Supercenter tsunami," Mr
Flickinger said.
! On the positive side, he said
Winn-Dixie is operating in
areas of tremendous growth,


which could bring in new cus-
tomers.
"That could be a ray of sun-
shine for company, but there
are oncoming storm clouds
heading toward the company,"
he added.
Winn-Dixie announced plans
earlier this year to close 326
stores and three distribution
centres. Upon completion of
its restructuring plan, it will
operate 575 stores in Florida,
Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia
and Mississippi, plus 12 stores
in the Bahamas.
In an SEC filing, Winn-Dix-
ie said its liquidity and capital
resources will be sufficient to
maintain operations at current
levels through the end of fis-
cal 2006.
, .Winn-Dixie has been nega-
tively affected by Hurricane
Katrina in New Orleans and
the Gulf coast. Hurricane


Wilma occurred in fiscal yeaI
2006. .
In Katrina, Winn-Dixie s.f-
fered property damage a ,d
inventory losses in about 1101
of its 125 stores, totaling mero
than $100 million. Winn-Dj*ie
expects its insurance to coler
most of its losses.
Ironically, sale levels in that
region have been the samedr
better than that experienced
before the hurricane. _
Winn-Dixie also announceI
Wednesday that it would holly

lic input, and why local government in
Abaco appeared to have been
"bypassed" in the approvals and per-
mitting process.
Ms Perrault added: "Why has the
Bahamian government not responded
to the excellent recommendations of a
world renowned marine bioecologist's
recommendation regarding the Envi-
ronmental Impact Assessment?
"Dr Michael Risk raised concerns
on the lack of critical data needed
before going ahead, related to impacts
on coral and other resources that may
occur from this golf course, marina,
and housing development, regardless
of laws and regulations in place, but
no effort was made to address his cau-
tions."


The views of the Sierra Club and
Save Guana Cay Association have
been repeatedly refuted by Discov-
ery Land Company executives, who
have predicted the project will have a
$1 billion "direct effect" on the Aba-
co and Bahamian economies. They
have described the project as a "mod-
el for economic development in the
Bahamas" that cannot be bettered.

Partner
Steve Adelson, a partner in San
Francisco-based Discovery Land
Company and vice-president of devel-
opment for the Baker's Bay project,
said: "I don't know a better model for
economic development in the'
Bahamas than what we're bringing.
It's appropriately sized.... we're cre-


ating administrative jobs, staff jobs
and entrepreneurial jobs. We're bring-
ing in all this foreign investment,
adding to the pot and not taking away
from it.
"The reason I say this is a model
development and economic gain for
the Bahamas is that it is clean and
environmentally sound. It contains
economic gains for the people of the
Bahamas through the taxes created
from real estate sales, and jobs creat-
ed for Bahamians.
"It's a model for the future eco-
nomic development of the Bahamas as
long as people follow these guide-
lines."
Mr Adelson said the Save Guana
Cay Reef Association "love to drama-
tise" and "put their spin on it", adding:
"The one disappointing thing about


the Bahamas is that there's 'no truth in
advertising law' that applies to the
Save Guana Cay people."
The developers are already pressing
ahead with the $1 million clean-up of
the former Premier Cruise Lines site,
their interim sales and hospitality facil-
ities, docking facilities and geotech
surveys.

Acres
Mr Adelson pointed out that the
105 acres of Crown Land and 20 acres
of Treasury land being used for the
development were being leased at
market rates from the Government,
while any beachfront areas included in
that package would be set aside for
the Foundation preserve that would
be accessible to future generations of


openness

Abaconians and BahamiansI 3 M
"We fit ourselvesinto tiin iie~9-
ment, not impose ourselves on0it:7Mr
Adelson said. "We think we a-ip mil-
ing significant headway with th 'elcal!
people, and they are goingsto evbry
proud of what will happen.tt PIeRjeatl

But Ms Perrault remains concernedA
about the environmental impactpof

generally.
She added: "The ecosystemsofflie!
Bahamas will continue to be thrdat-j
ened by the incremental threats- of
irresponsible development that ercfde;

FROM page one

AF Adderley continued
to build on the momentum
as they surged ahead 16-10
at the half as LW Young
had difficulty containing
them on the inside.
But things turned around
in the third quarter when


the Eagles got two straight
three-pointers from Dwight
Wallace to trim AF Adder-
ley's lead to 18-17.
However, AF Adderley
regained control of the
game and the lead at 23-22
at the break.
In the fourth quarter, AF
Adderley opened a 27-22
advantage in the first


minute and they never
relinquished the lead,
despite the fact that
LW Young came within
one.
The Eagles, however,
paid dearly for the run as
they switched from a zone
to a man-to-man defense
and two of their key play-
ers fouled out down the


stretch as the Fighting
Tigers held on for the
win.
After spending nine
years at CC Sweeting, Bain
got his first transfer to LW
Young and even thought
he's just getting used to the
junior school system, he
said he was pleased with
what he saw.


"It was strange, but, so
far, I'm enjoying it because
it's more teaching and you
have to go over the funda-
mentals a little more," he
insisted. "In time, we will
see how it goes."
The tournament will con-
tinue today at 3pm and will
run through Saturday,
starting at 9am.

N SOFTBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THE Kingsway Academy
Saints marched to their third
straight victory in the Austin
'King Snake' Knowles
National High School Softball
Tournament with a 8-4 victo-
ry over North Andros.
Thursday's win came on the
heels of their 20-3 rout over
the Government High Mag-
icmen. The Saints, however,
pulled off a big 7-4 decision
over the Jordan Prince
William Falcons on day one
of the tournament on
Wednesday night.
Now coach Terrance Pin-
der is now confident his Saints
can march through the tour-
nament that wraps up on Sun-
day with a perfect record.
"The guys are playing good.
They're loose, too loose.
They're not as focussed as I
would like them to be, but
they're winning and they're
playing well," he pointed out.
"We just need to clean up
the base running, but for the
most part, they're hitting the
ball very well and they're
playing very well."
While Kingsway Academy
have gotten off to a fast start,
NGM Major High made sure
they' stayed close with a 4-2
decision over Prince William
to improve to 2-1.
"I took the win, but the
guys could play a lot better,"
said coach Delano Cartwright.
"I think it's because of the
lack of games to play in Long
Island because there's only
two schools. We just want to
play every week and if we do,
it can only make us better."
On the ladies' side, NGM
also pulled off a big victory
with a 13-4 rout over
Kingsway Academy to
improve to 1-1. But coach
Kelly Weinghtman said
they're only going to play bet-
ter as the tournament pro-
gresses.
"I think the girls finally got
comfortable with being here
and their hitting started to
come alive," she stressed.
"That was the difference in
the first game. So I expect
them to get better."
Here's a summary of some
of the games played so far:
NGM 13, Kingsway
Academy 4: Selena
Cartwright had a perfect 2-
for-2 day with a pair of home
runs, driving in five mates to

AF Adderley
Tigers claw their

way past the

Golden Eagles

* BASKETBALL
By BRENT STUBBS'
Senior Sports
Reporter
RAMONE 'Twin'
McFall canned a pair of '
free throws with just 8.4
seconds remaining to help
the AF Adderley Fighting'
Tigers pull off a 29-26 vic-
tory over LW Young
Golden Eagles and help'
coach Ricardo Fergusonf
make a successful return
to the DW Davis Gymna-
sium.
AF Adderley's victory
on Thursday sealed game
one of the second DW
Davis Junior High Basket-
ball Tournament that was
originally organised by
Ferguson before he was-
transferred to AF Adder-
ley this year.
At the same time, it
spoiled the debut of LW
Young's coach Penial
Bain in the junior high
school segment after he
was transferred from the
CC Sweeting Secondary
High School.
Integral
"It feels good. I'm just
happy that we got he
win," said Ferguson, who
still plays an integral part
in the organising of th&
tournament, despite his
chaiige in location.
"I'm using this as a final
look at our team selection
(for the Government Sec-
ondary Schools Sports.,
Association's upcoming
season). We made a lot of
mistakes, but to get the
win is a great feeling."
McFall cameoff the ,`
bench and ignited the
Fighting Tigers' backcourt
with point guard Jamon
King. McFall finished with
a side high 12 points.
AF Adderley also got
six points each from their
two big men, Amad Miller
and Jamal Thurston, the"
latter also produced two
consecutive block shots'iq
the final 23 seconds to
keep the Fighting Tigers
ahead.

Honours
For the Golden Eagles,
Dwight Wallace matched
the game high honours.
with 12. Rashad Stirrulp
had six and Karon Pratt
contributed four.
It was a keenly contest-
ed game from start to fin-
ish as both coaches tried
to feel out their new play-
ers under a game situa-
tion. Neither team led by
more than six points in the
game that had just two
ties.
LW Young had taken a
7-3 lead on a pair of free
throws from Rashad
Knowles with less than.
two minutes to play in the
first quarter. But AF
Adderley got a jumper
from McFall to pull even
at 7-7 at the break.
