Police announce


crime initiative

Tribune Staff Reporter
POLICE have set up a spe-
cial unit to protect tourists in
what senior officers call a
"ground-breaking" initiative.
The move aims to save the
country's main industry from
"pillagers, hawkers and other
touristic leeches," the force says.
The first police tourist sec-
tion has been launched in con-
junction with the Ministry of
The Bahamas Visitor Safety
and Security Section (BVSSS)
will become a "visible presence"
in tourist areas.
The objective is to keep crime
away from visitors, who provide
the lifeblood of the national
economy, and bring swift jus-
tice to offenders.
Yesterday, at the Police Col-
lege, Assistant Supt Christopher
Rahming, officer in charge of
the new unit, said with 60 offi-
cers attached to the unit, they
would be covering every tourist
area in New Providence and
Paradise Island.
These include Adelaide Vil-
lage west to South Ocean,
Clifton Cay, Jaws Beach to
West Bay Street, inclusive of all
hotels, motels, tourist attrac-

tions, nightclubs, restaurants,
bars and grills, Arawak Cay,
and the downtown area.
"Of.particular mention will
be Prince George Dock, Wood-
es Rodger's Wharf, Potter's
Cay, and Paradise Island, and
the boundary will extend as far
as East Bay Street to the inter-
section of the Eastern Road and
Prince Charles Drive," he said.
Mr Rahming said in certain
areas such as Prince George
Wharf, the unit will focus on
what they have seen as particu-
lar problem areas such as the
Festival Place visitor area.
"We are particularly inter-
ested in harassment of tourists
and visitors, whether by hawk-
ers, scooter renters, jet-ski oper-
ators, hair braiders, taxi-drivers,
or hackers who are creating a
problem in the system with the
taxi-drivers," he said.
"People walk up to tourists
and put a bracelet on them and
when they give them like $50,
the people say 'Hold on, let me
go get some change' and they
don't return. This is really hit-
ting the FestivaflPlace area," he
Mr Rahming said that on an
assessment exercise by officers,

Strikte action 'is

affecting service'

INDUSTRIAL action by
the Bahamas Electrical Work-
ers Union (BEWU) is adverse-
ly affecting BEC's ability to
deliver service to its customers.
This statement was made
late last night by BEC execu-
tives as strikes and mass sick-
outs continue to be staged by
the union in New Providence
and the Family Islands.
BEC said that, as a result
of the union's actions, pro-
tracted outages, are being expe-
rienced in Abaco and
"In New Providence cus-
tomers are being subjected to
extended waits at 'both the
Mall at Marathon and the

main administrative building
while attempting to pay their
bills," BEC stated.
The corporation's execu-
tives, however, assure the pub-
lic that BEC is working to
address the outages in Abaco
and Eleuthera.
BEC further apologised for
any inconvenience experienced
so far by its customers.
Last night a Marsh Harbour
businessman said several com-
munities in Abaco were hit
yesterday. These included
Treasure Cay, Hope Town,
Guana Cay and Elbow Cay.

Tribune Staff Reporter
DELTA'S decision to dis-
continue its low-cost carriers
Song Airlines next year is not
expected to negatively impact

the new plant starts production
the barging of water to New
Providence will end.
This, he said, will allow for
the well fields in Andros to

He explained that since 1997,
the Waterfields Company has
been producing two million gal-

This water is then distributed
by the Water and Sewerage

"This is currently the fresh-

pare it to bottled water it is
40 per cent fresher than typical

Mr Lightbourne said that
when operations at the Balliou
Hills plant begin, the Water-
fields company will pull 18 mil-
lion gallons of water a day from
underground resources, which
will then be purified into seven
millions gallons of potable
He added that this sea water

250 feet underground, so as not
to interfere with the island's
fresh water table, which people

BASH denies being

awarded contract

Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas Association
For Social Health has denied
that it has been awarded a sub-
stantial government contract.
The organisation was
responding to a report printed in
a local tabloid which said it had
received a contract large enough
to make it self-sufficient.
BASH founder Terry Miller
told The Tribune yesterday that
the claims, printed in the Octo-
ber 12 issue of The Punch, are
completely false.
The story appeared under the
heading, "Miller caught up in
half a million dollar conflict of
interest" a reference to the
fact that Mr Miller and Trade
and Industry Minister Leslie
Miller are related.
"Let me categorically state that
neither Terry Miller nor BASH
(Bahamas Association for Social
Health) was given any contract to
renovate ZNS or any other gov-
ernment ministry, department or
corporation," he said.
He added that the accusa-
tions may have affected public
willingness to donate to BASH.
Mr Miller said that while the
organisation is working hard to
become self-sufficient, it has not
yet reached that goal.
He said that in addition to


cash donations, BASH receives
40 per cent of its finances from
the two contracts it does have.

V A L S into Christian ethical thinking
by (the American theologian
Joseph Fletcher who spoke of
it as "the new morality".
Situation ethics informed the
thinking behind "the Wolfend-
en Report", in which it was
advocated that there was noth-
ing wrong with "homosexual
acts carried out by consenting
adults. in private".
This report was published in
England back in the early
1960's when "situation ethics"
was very much in the air,
(While situation ethics or
"the new morality" was the
subject of much debate in the
Church about 40 years ago,
there has been a return to tra-
ditional ethics in the Church
in recent years. This matter is
too complex for detailed dis-
cussion here).
Coming to the situation in
the Bahamas today, there can
be no doubt that the argu-
ments advanced by the Presi-
dent of the Bar present a major
challenge. Two important
questions arise.
First, is a night club a "pri-
vate club"? For, evidently, the
learned attorney holds tena-
ciously to the opinion that a
night club is "private". The
writer is no legal expert. It is
submitted however, that
whereas a club in which one
pays an .annual members fee
and has a membership card
may be regarded as private,
whether any establishment to
which one may gain immediate
access simply by paying on the
spot is private is a matter open

to much debate!
The position maintained:
here is that such a place is pub-
lic and therefore is subject toQ
the laws of the land governing,
actions in public places.
The second question is this:
"Where do you draw the line
when it comes to situation.
ethics?" Concisely, it is argued
that "strip dancing" or expos-
ing the naked human body is
"not illegal" in private loca-
tions, but illegal in public, then
what about other acts which
are held on the basis of Biblical
ethics to be wrong?
.Does it mean then, that,
according to our laws, homo-
sexuality is not illegal if prac-"
tised in privacy? Does the posi--
tion of the Wolfenden report
obtain to The Bahamas?
* What about incest? Righf
now our social workers are;
doing their best to deal with
this very serious and most del-
icate issue. One concerned
Christian lady recently
expressed alarm at the high,
incidence of incest in our
nation, urging that the Church,
take concrete steps to address.
When we consider this mat-
ter, we begin to realise how
perilous is the idea of basing]
moral judgment on whether an
act is done in public or in pria
vate. Well, will some clever)
lawyer defend a person
charged with incest by asserts
ing the action of his client to bd
"not illegal" because it was'
done in a private place? 1'

Specifically, the spiritual lead--

other major denominations-
should join the President of
the Christian Council in giving
their full support to Bishop
Neil Ellis and Pastor Cedric

such immoral behaviour.

because of the profound social
and moral ramification of this
ruling, it is submitted that this
matter merits consideration at
the pinnacle of the judiciary:
It is expected therefore that
"the powers that be" will

And if the council, in the
final analysis, agrees that,
according to our laws, "strip

would be necessary to amend
the legislation of our nation
that they do become illegal.

Mr Smith said the fact that
neither of the two men had a

made them even harder to find.

Criminals must not be allowed to

destroy the Bahamian economy

THE current spate of
escalating violent
crimes is giving all Bahamians
of goodwill just cause for con-
cern not only for their own
safety, but also for the damage
it is doing to our country's rep-
utation and the serious threat
it poses to our local economy.
So serious is this undesirable
situation that the United States
of America, from whence we
derive the lion's share of our
tourists, is expressing its con-
cern for the future safety of its
citizens who elect to visit our
otherwise fair shores. The US
Embassy has already issued an
alert regarding the same.

As is generally the case in cri-
sis situations, ours has often-


times been a reactionary
response and one that has
been of a quick-fix nature. Nev-
ertheless, in this instance, we
would certainly welcome any
immediate response to the seri-
ous threat presented by the cur-
rent spate of criminal activities.
However, given its significance,
we sincerely hope that such an
initial response does not repre-

Last week, it was announced
that the Government plans to
build a new 500-cell block at
the Fox Hill Prison. While this
addition can be seen as a neces-
sity given the overcrowded
conditions that presently exist
at that penal institution it of
itself, however, must not be
regarded as being even remote-
ly close to the solution to our
frightening crime problem.

Recently, we wrote an
article in this column
entitled: "A Strategy for Win-
ning the War against Crime".
On that occasion, we listed what
we regarded as the four fronts
upon which our assault on crim-
inal activities should be waged.
They were as follows: the pre-
ventive, the punitive, the reha-
bilitative and the redemptive.
This selection was arrived at
after taking into consideration
some social conditions that con-
tribute significantly to our vex-
ing crime problem. Today, we
will deal with the preventive
aspect of dealing with our crim-
inal problem.
Firstly, let us examine the
drastic changes that have
occurred in the home environ-
ments from whence our crimi-
nals emerge. You will find that

IN DAYS gone by looks back this week at the 1988 'Hands
Across the Bahamas' campaign organised in an effort to
begin the eradication of the source of drugs in the Bahamas.
More than 50,000 people were expected to lock hands
across the major islands of the Bahamas on April 17 of that
The project, which was modeled after 'Hands Across
America' was sponsoredby the-Rotary Clubs of the
Originally the project was to be called 'Hands Across New
Providence'. However, after the appointment of the
Reverend CB Moss as executive director of the venture, it
was expanded to the Family Islands and became "Hands
Across the Bahamas".
On April 17 Bahamians from all walks of life and of all

Walk goes to hel

nation's youth

MANY of today's politicians seem to be deficient of the
understanding that in order to be a legitimate leader they
must first learn to serve.
In the October 20 edition of The Tribune, I read with
amusement as Tommy Turnquest complained that some
people were trying to drive a wedge between him and former
prime minister Hubert Ingraham.
What was more humorous was reading that Tommy Turn-
quest said: "Under the leadership of Mr Ingraham, I was
faithful beyond reproach and served him and the people of
the Bahamas to the best of my ability and moving forward I
equally expect that he would serve me well under my
leadership as the nation's next prime minister."
I blinked, rubbed my eyes and re-read this paragraph,
thinking that I must have been hallucinating, as no astute
politician would dig their political graves with such an
imprudent proclamation. But good ol' Tommy did!
Mr Ingraham should serve YOU, Mr Turnquest? Are you
serious? Are we in a restaurant? Are you a king and everyone
else your servants, your subjects? Would you like some tea,
Tommy Turnquest just committed a fatal error politically
by exposing his true colours to the Bahamian people as a
privileged, aloof wannabe who is accustomed to service rather
than serving.
Is this why Mr Turnquest is so desperately seeking to
become the next prime minister, so that he can be served?.
Whatever happened to serving the Bahamian people?.
It would be shameful if Tommy Turnquest is solely seeking
the leadership of both his party and his country simply for his
own self-gratification and grandiosity.
What's more, Mr Turnquest, as repugnant as some FNMs
may consider Mr Ingraham, he is the only man who has led
your party from the political wilderness, made you a minister
and, as a former PM, he deserves some respect.
Do you really think that Mr Ingraham will serve YOU, sir?
The thought of Hubert Alexander Ingraham serving Tommy
Turaquest is more imaginary and comical than pragmatic.
Just imagine the sorcerer now serving the apprentice.
The PLP must be sitting back ecstatically, as FNMs fero-
ciously launch campaign after campaign against themselves
and just provide more venom and inside information for the
PLP's electioneering machine!
Tommy, take a tip from Tourism Minister Obie Wilch-
combe, who in the August 26 edition of The Tribune said of
his political aspirations:
"While I am humbled by what people have been saying
about me being'leader and becoming prime minister, right
now I am more interested in making contributions to my
country. If asked to pick up garbage I will do it and do it to
the best of my abilities. Being prime minister depends on the
organisation behind me and my constituents."
Mr Turnquest, are you willing to pick up garbage if asked?
And if so, will you do it to the best of your abilities?
If you want to truly exert yourself as a respected leader and
a potential prime minister, your tenacity, perseverance and
personal decency are not all that counts.
You must first humble yourself and learn the value of being
a servant of and fot thepeople of the Bhhamas, instead of
looking fpt'&o ple1 lri tser |

to them to voice their discon-

"tricked and misled" them.
However, members of the
government's negotiation team

said discussions about condi-

not even started.
Speaking with The Tribune,

the expiration of the last one.,
"I said I would not do that. I
am a responsible citizen. I am a
responsible leader. I said here is
what I want you to consider -

Mr Pinder said.

lei travellers, with amenities such as increased
leg~ om, pre-flight meal ordering and even a
mu service.
Mr Sawyer said that Delta will be able to offer
passengers the same low-cost air fares as Song,
because Delta will now be competing in the same
low-cost markets Song did, vying against such

low-cost carriers as Jet Blue and Spirit Airlines.
Nassau is one of 16 locations Song services
and one of three Caribbean destinations.
Mr Sawyer said the airline had demonstrated
a strong commitment to the Bahamas and added
that the ministry did not foresee that Delta's
financial problems would negatively affect its
presence in the country.
He explained that when carriers file for bank-
ruptcy, the onus is then thrust on to creditors
and shareholders, resulting in a greater emphasis
on profitability.
He stressed that the Bahamas had always
proved to be a strong route for the airline and he
predicted that the relationship between the
Bahamas and Delta would continue to strength-

accused of Moxey's murder.
Then police brought Ian Joseph Hutchinson,
of Fox Dale sub-division, before Chief Magis-
trate Roger Gomez to face the murder charge.
Court dockets stated that between Tuesday,
October 25, and Wednesday, October 26,
Hutchinson intentionally and unlawfully caused
the death of Jacqueline Moxey.
In court Hutchinson periodically exchanged
glances with a few of Moxey's family who were
allowed into the small courtroom yesterday.
Hutchinson was not required to plead to the
Charge. ...
He told the court that he had an attorney,

Wayne Munroe. However, neither Mr Munroe
nor any representative of his was present at
yesterday's proceedings.
As soon as the magistrate stood down and
Hutchinson was being.escorted out of the court-
room, the few family members who had been
allowed in broke down into a grief-stricken
Police tried unsuccessfully to quiet them as
they wept and screamed. Moxey's daughter was
among them as the weeping continued onto
Bank Lane.
Hutchinson was remanded to Her Majesty's
Fox Hill Prison. A preliminary inquiry will
begin on January 20,2006, to determine if there
is sufficient evidence to have the matter tried in
the Supreme Court.

the amount of graffiti and harassment of tourists was disgrace-
"During their assessment they actually arrested three per-
sons," he remarked.
"And just two days ago at Frederick Street, three of our
undercover officers arrested a person with 10 packages of
cocaine with the intention of selling it to tourists," he said.
Policewoman Adena Sutherland, now a community officer,
said the negative effect of persons in these tourist areas sent rip-
ples throughout the Bahamian economy.
"That doesn't just affect those persons downtown it will
affect us all. So we need to educate these persons, and make sure
that they see the value in what they are doing and understand
that their actions will affect us all," she said.

RICHARD Bain pitched two
tough games on Friday, help-
ing the defending champions
Nassau Christian Academy
Crusaders to remain undefeated
in the Austin 'King Snake'
Knowles National High School
Softball Tournament.
Bain got the win and was
joined on the offensive end by
Harvey Knowles as they both
went 1-for-2 with a run batted
in, scoring another in their 6-5
victory over the Jordan Prince.
William Falcons.
Deangelo Archer was tagged
with the loss for the Faldons.
Also yesterday at the Baillou
Hills Sporting Complex got
another decision on the mound
and went 1-for-2, this time with
three RBIs, scoring a run, in
their 7-6 triumph over the
Kingsway Academy Saints.
Rolle chipped in with a 1-for-
2 day, driving in a run and scor-
ing one as well.
Stephen Duncombe suffered
the loss for the previously unde-
feated Kingsway Academy.
Gerald Major was 2-for-3 with
three RBIs, scoring a run and
Brandon Wells was 1-for-3 with
two RBIs.
While:the Crusaders have
surged out front, the girls' divi-
siori is a lot tighter with at least
three teams in the running for
the top spot as the tournaffient
heads into the final day of com-
petition today at 9 am..
More than 50 games will have
been played before the two new
champions are crowned later
Chief statistician'Rozina Tay-
lor said her six-member scoring

crew will be. hard-pressed to
ensure that the statistics are
properly recorded in a timely
fashion, but they are prepared
as usual for the challenge.
"It's challenging because.
sometimes you go from one
field to another before you can
record any stats from the game
you just scored," .said Taylor,
who assists anyone who is
caught in that delimma.
Likewise, the officiating is just
as important, but chief umpire
Arthur 'Old Art' Thompson
said his nine-member crew are
right on top of things."I think
this is the first time that they've
had this level of officiating, but
the kids like it," said Thomp-
son, who supervises his crew
from the sidelines.
"Everybody has done a great
job so far. We're getting close to
the end and we're handling it
as best as we can. Some of them
are not at the level of the ISF,
but that is why we're using them
in this tournament so that they
can get accustomed to the offi-
ciating." .
Here is a summary of some
of the other games played yes-
Prince William. 16, Central
Eleuthera 1. Latario albury pro-
duced the best offensive pro-
duction so far in the tournament
with a grand slam and a three-
run homer in a 2-for-2 day for
seven RBIs.and two runs scored
as he helped his own cause on
the mound.
Pete Smith was almost as
spectacular, but he felt short

Potcakes face punishment fom Dorcy Park

Senior Sports Reporter
THE Andromed- Potcakes'-
debit in the Bahamas Softball
Federation's National Round
Robin Tournament was one
that they hope to put them
behind them in a hurry. -
The Potcakes only lasted
three innings as Electro Tele-
com Dorcy Park Boyz pulled
off a whipping 22-0 victory. Ace
Edney 'the Heat' Bethel's
assortment'of pitches were too
much for them to handle before
a large crowd at the Churchill
Tener Knowles National 'Soft-
ball Stadium on Thursday night.
Bethel pitched a perfect
game in the feature men's con-

test, striking out the nine batters
he faced. On top of that, he and
his Dorcy Park Boyz teammates
produced a, total of 15 hits in
just two innings.
Alacon Rolle, the manager
for the Potcakes, said they real-
ly had an eye-opener from
Bethel and Dorcy Park Boyz.
"It looked like we were flat,
but because of Edney, we didn't
come out ready," Rolle reflect-
ed. "But we hope to bounce
back and get back into this tour-
Even though they didn't
appear to be on the same level
as the Dorcy Park Boyz, Rolle
said he's convinced that his
Andromed squad could play a
lot better, because they did in*
the Andros Softball Associa-

tion's championship series to
earn the right to come to the
round robin.
"They hit the ball too in the.
championship, but we couldn't
get anything going tonight,"
Rolle said. "We definitely have
to play much better."
Electro Telecom, on the oth-
er hand, played as well as man-
ager Mario Ford had.expected
against a team such as the Pot-
"It was a good way to get
started. We just have to con-
tionue hitting and once we are
able to do that, we know the
pitching will come around,"
Ford said. "So we just have to
hit the ball and play defense."
The Dorcy Park Boyz' offen-
sive attack was not that bad

either against the Potcakes.
Bethel helped his own cause
going 2-for-2 with four RBIs,
scoring twice and Ford' was. 1-
for-2 with two RBIs and a run
Andy 'Smudge' Ford went 3-
for-4 with four RBIs, scoring.
three times; Darren Bowleg was
2-for-2 with four RBIs, scoring
twice; Windsor Bethel was 3-
for-3 With two RBIs and three'
funs and Dumont Charlow was
1-for-1 with two RBIs, scoring
three times.
Lavic Evans went the dis-
tance to suffer the loss.
In the ladies' opener that
kicked off the -tournament that
has been marred by the untime-
ly death of Electro Telecom
Wildcats fright-fielder Jackie

'Lil Stunt' Moxey, the Sunshine
Angels from Long Island blast-
ed the Andros Whale Cay 13-7.
A wreath was placed at the.
edge of the bleacher stand
where Moxey often sat when-
ever she came out to the park
and was not playing.
She was 'to have been hon-
oured during the opening cere-
mony last night by the federa-
tion. Her Wildcats were also
scheduled to make their initial
appearance since her death on
Tuesday morning.
Players from all of the teams
are wearing black ribbons as a
mark of repect for her death.
Sunshine Angels 13, Andros
Whale Cay 7: Marge Fox gave
up eight hits and struck out
three, but she helped her cause

with a 3-for-4 night, scoring four
runs in their offensive attack.
Shavante Dean was 3-for-4
.with two runs scored; Brandi-
na McPhee was 3-for-4 with
four RBIs, scoring twice; Mavis
Delancy was 2-for-4 with two

Large crowd sparks



More victory

* 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 season opener.
Playing before a large crowd on their
home turf, the two-time defending cham-
pions Sparks pulled off a 16-10 victory
over the Crushers on Wednesday in a real
defensive battle.
