Harbour Island

project to be

re-examined


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
LABELLING the expansion
of the Valentine's Resort in
Harbour Island an "obscenity",
Prime Minister Perry Christie
yesterday announced that this
project will be re-examined to
determine the best course for
the community.
Mr Christie made this state-
ment while responding to ques-
tions by North Eleuthera MP
Alvin Smith regarding a lease
on a public ramp in Harbour
Island during yesterday's House
of Assembly session.
Speaking out against the
large marina and dock at
Valentine's, the prime minis-
ter said it is "inconceivable"
that the project was ever


approved in its current state.
Mr Christie said the size of
the facility is not appropriate
for the island, and is, in fact, a
"functional obstruction."
"Initially it was agreed upon
to renovate the (old) dock.
However, the result was some-
thing different," he said.
Mr Christie said that govern-
ment has now launched an
investigation into the project
and is considering building a
new dock for local fishermen.
Regarding a second contro-
versy brewing in Harbour
Island over the leasing of a'pub-
lic ramp near the Valentine's
Resort, Mr Smith told parlia-
ment that he foresees major
problems for the community.

Former Bahamasair boss
'likely' to move to WSC


* By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
PAUL Major, who resigned
this week as boss of Bahama-
sair, is likely to become general
manager at the troubled Water
and Sewerage Corporation.
This was confirmed yesterday
by Works Minister Bradley
Roberts, who said it was "high-
ly possible" that Mr Major
would take over the water
organisation.
The move follows months of
conflict at the top at Water and
Sewerage, and predictions in


yesterday's Tribune that the
chairman and general manager
would both be axed.
Mr Roberts' statement came
after Mr Major resigned from
Bahamasair on Tuesday fol-
lowing the airline board's
refusal to renew his contract.
Mr Roberts did not directly
say WSC general manager
Abraham Butler and chairman
Donald Demeritte would be
fired. But he said definitely
"one of them is gone".
The two executives have been

Majority rule

'liberated all

Bahamians'
MAJORITY rule was achieved by both
black and white Bahamians and its com-
memoration should not be used to bring
about racial divide, Prime Minister Perry
Christie told parliament yesterday.
Responding to criticism that the PLP was
"taking Majority Rule for themselves," Mr
Christie emphasised that Majority Rule,
although in large part representing the lib-
eration of black Bahamians, was also the
liberation of the entire-Bahamian people.
The fact is, he said, that not only black

SColinalmperial.

ffInsurance Ltd.
Welcomes New President


Colinalmperial Insurance Ltd. is pleased to announce the
appointment of Mr. Montgomery Braithwaite to the position of
President, effective January 1, 2006.

Speaking on behalf of the board of Colina Holdings Bahamas
Ltd. (CHBL), Chairman, Mr. Terry Hilts, said CHBL is confident
that Mr. Braithwaite will be the catalyst to bring about the
synergies that in many instances are primed and ready within
the company. "We know for a fact that there is a wealth of
talent among our employees," said Mr. Hilts, "and we want to
create an environment where that enthusiasm and willingness
to make Colinalmperial a great company will be called upon in
every circumstance. Monty has proven over the years that he
is a consummate professional and his style is one of inclusion.
We feel this is exactly what the company needs now and in the
long term."

Mr. Braithwaite, a chartered accountant by profession, spent
the last twenty of his thirty-year tenure at Deloitte & Touche in
the role of Partner. He holds an MBA from the
University of Miami.

Mr. Braithwaite is married to the former Anne Marie Ali and has
two sons, Kimani and Khalil. Beyond his professional commit-
ments, Mr. Braithwaite presently serves as the Chairman of the
Bahamas Infant Stimulation Programme and the Bahamas
Hotel Union Employees Aid Fund, and is member of St.
Anselm's Catholic Church.

what the Bahamas was like
when he was a boy (referring
to racial division at the time).
"But George, when he was a
kid, shot marbles with his boy-
hood friends on the Eastern
Road; and he shot marbles with
his boyhood friends in Fox Hill.
That means a lot. That may not
mean anything to young folks
around here, but that means a
lot of the character of a per-
son," he said.
Bradley Roberts, MP for
Grants Town, described how
Mr Mackey showed an unwa-
vering love for his family, and
said he was always so proud to
talk about the accomplishments
of his children, and later, grand-
children.
"Mr Speaker, the arrival of
the grandchildren was a most
welcomed phase in the life of
George Mackey. Devonn
became the apple of his eye,
and with the arrival of
Dominique, George had an
apple for each eye. A happier
man you could not find. When-
ever I asked George how the
grandsons were, he would have
stories upon stories to tell.
"I offered but a glimpse of
George Mackey the husband,
the father and the grandfather,


a life worthy of emulating. We
shall miss George, who became
a positive fixture in the life of
Over-the-hill and the Fox Hill
community, a man who gave of
himself to building a better
Bahamas for all. Our dear
brother will be sorely missed,"
Mr Roberts said.
Adding his own side-splitting
humorous contribution, Leslie
Miller, MP for Blue -Hills,
recalled how he tried to emulate
Mr Mackey's "My Beloved"
attitude during his fledgling
years in politics.
Mr Miller said he was initial-
ly "disturbed" by being referred
to as "my beloved" by Mr
Mackey, who commonly
addressed people in this fash-
ion. But he said it was because
of Mr Mackey's unwavering
affection for people, and
through his advice, that he con-
tinued further in politics.
Brent Symonette, FNM MP
for Montagu, said if Mr Mackey
should be memorialised, it
should be for no less than a
national hero.
"George Mackey has been
what we would like to call the
true definition of a man. He is
well deserving of the title of a
National Hero of .the Com-
monwealth of the Bahamas. He
was such a man a man for all
seasons," he said.

THE Senate reopened on a somber note yesterday
as senators paid tribute and reflected on the life and
legacy of George Mackey, OBE.
Senators described Mr Mackey as a humble, hon-
ourable man of the people.
Free National Movement Senator Tommy Turn-
quest referred to him as a "truly uncommon man".
"He was honest, upright and well-liked all across
the political divide," Mr Turnquest said.
He described Mr Mackey as a well-respected
politician who never discriminated against anyone
because of political affiliation.
PLP Senator Paulette Zonicle said that Mr Mack-
ey had a profound impact on her life even at a
young age. She noted that Mr Mackey had been
very influential in the Progressive Young Liberals
organisation.
"I do not view him as a national hero but as a
national treasure," Senator Zonicle said, reflecting on
how committed Mr Mackey was to the people of
the St Michael's constituency, now the St Cecelia
constituency.

Tribune Staff Reporter
IRATE German investor Har-
ald Fuhrmann, who has launched
a one-man campaign to steer
investors away from the
Bahamas, had to be escorted out
of the Christ Church Cathedral
after handing Attorney General
Alfred Sears "a sour lemons
award" during a service to com-
memorate the opening of the
official legal year yesterday.
Mr Fuhrmann, who prior to
the incident had paced at the
back of the church for some
time, eventually made his way
to the front of the church and
handed Mr Sears what appeared
to be a cylindrical object.
According to a press photogra-
pher shooting the mass, Mr Sears
looked puzzled by the object and
placed it on the pew next to him.
The photographer and several
other persons alerted police to
the incident who then moved in
and escorted Mr Fuhrmann out
of the building.
Once outside and surrounded
by police, Mr Fuhrmann
demanded to see reporters: say-
ing his rights had been violated.
He claimed that the "sour lemon

FNM Scni.t, ,r Gl.id)s Johnson-Sands said.that
although she did not know Mr Mackey personally,
she knows that he had left an indelible mark on the
lives of many Bahamians.
She described Mr Mackey as open and
objective, and a man who never lost the common
touch.
FNM chairman Carl Bethel described Mr Mackey
as a truly honourable man. "PLP, FNM at the end
of the day we are all Bahamians, that is what George
Mackey exemplified," Mr Bethel said.

Friend
PLP Senator Dr Bernard Nottage reflected on
Mr Mackey as a friend and politician. "George
Mackey was a respectable man who earned that
respect by the contributions he made to the Bahami-
an society even outside of politics ," he said.
PLP senator CB Moss described Mr Mackey as a
someone who demonstrated what it is to be true
politician, in that he elevated his political service to
"national service".

award" symbolised the fact that
"the entire legal system in the
country stank".
Several persons outside the
church commended police for
removing Mr Fuhrmann. As one
bystander noted, the entire legal
framework of the country was
inside.
In addition to Mr Sears, mem-
bers of the Diplomatic Corps,
Police Commissioner and
Provost Marshall Paul Far-
quharson, the Chief Justice Sir
Burton Hall, justices, magistrate
and attorneys and invited guests


were all inside the cathedral.
Police led Mr Fuhrmann away
from the cathedral before the
judiciary marched to the
Supreme Court.
Mr Fuhrmann, who says he is
still seeking justice in a property
case dating back ten years, has
deemed the Bahamas "the axis
of evil and the tourist trap."
Late last year, German Har-
ald Fuhrmann begun a road tour
down the east coast of the
United States to dissuade Amer-
icans from investing in the
Bahamas.


Tourists robbed at Arawak Cay

POLICE were yesterday urged to tighten security at
Arawak Cay after a group of tourists were held up and robbed
by knife-wielding youths.
The visitors had just finished a meal at the Fish Fry when the
crooks approached and slashed the handle of a woman's
handbag.
The incident happened in mid-afternoon on Tuesday right
outside the Arawak Cay police station. Officers gave chase,
but the robbers escaped.
A taxi-driver called a radio talk show yesterday to say how
saddened he was to witness the robbery, which happened
only a few minutes after the tourists had said how much they
were enjoying their trip to Nassau.
The husband of the woman robbed had to be taken to hos-
pital with a hand wound after struggling with one of the
youths.
The taxi-driver told Love 97's Issues of the Day: "One of the
guys pulled out a knife and cut the tourist's handbag. The hus-
band grabbed the knife and received a laceration.
"It happened right outside the police station. The police
came out and these guys took off. The officers gave chase. It
was so sad. I was not able to sleep last night.
"Here we had tourists who had come to visit this country to
enjoy the Bahamas experience being robbed by youths with a
knife.
"I think we need more security on Arawak Cay."

Hats off to Bahamasair and 'Miss Kitty'


BAHAMASAIR is always somebody's
whipping boy. It just never seems to do any-
thing right.
However, we have always maintained that
Bahamasair, once airborne, can compete with
any airline. It has competent pilots and cabin
crew. And now it has "Miss Kitty".
And that's what this article is about. With
all the confusion, frustration and general dis-
content at Nassau International Airport, and
the airports in Miami and Fort Lauderdale
when New Providence's radar broke down, it
was Ms Teres Josaine -"Miss Kitty" sta-
tioned in Miami who saved Bahamasair's rep-
utation. As a matter of fact on the evening
of January 26 the only halo glowing in Miami
that night was around the counter of Miss Kit-
ty and her staff manager "Woodie" and
Greg King.
While some counter staff at other airlines
took the attitude that the delay was not the
fault of their airline and, therefore, their airline
had no obligation to its passengers, national
pride welled in the breast of "Miss Kitty".
She sided with her passengers and did all that
she could to help them at least to keep
them informed with the precious little infor-
mation that she could squeeze out of Nassau.
With 32 flights cancelled, and thousands of
passengers stranded, both at Nassau Interna-
tional and south Florida airports, Bahama-
sair managing director Paul Major was able to
get two Bahamasair aircraft to Florida one
to Miami, the other to Fort Lauderdale -
after midnight Monday in other words ear-
ly Tuesday morning.
The reputation of Bahamasair's counter
staff in Miami was further enhanced when
passengers heard the hassle being given pas-
sengers milling around Continental Connec-
tions counter, located next door.
Passengers, some of whom had been wait-
ing 14 hours, were told by Continental staff to
find their own accommodation and report to
the Continental counter at 8 o'clock the next
morning. No one would be available before
then to help them. And at that point there
was no guarantee that even then Continental
could assist them without putting on extra
flights because the airline's regular flights for
that morning were already fully booked.
When passengers learned that a Bahama-
sair plane was flying in and there was a possi-
bility of salvaging.their vacation by switching
from Continental to Bahamasair, passengers
reported that Continental refused to transfer
their tickets. A supervisor was quoted as say-
ing that he worked for Continental Connec-

tion, which had no ticketing agreement with
Bahamasair. Their passengers' tickets could
not be refunded because Continental's counter
had already closed, and, of course, no tickets
could be endorsed over to Bahamasair.
According to passengers, the supervisor told
them that no Bahamasair plane would be fly-
ing to Miami that night, because it would be
too dangerous for such a big plane to make the
return flight to Nassau without radar.
This news frightened off some passengers,
but about 20 of them transferred to the
counter of "Miss Kitty" and her colleagues
and bought Bahamasair tickets to Nassau.
Continental was not the only US airline
that did not give out hotel vouchers that night,
claiming that on this occasion the fault was not
theirs.
Bahamasair staff kept their passengers
together and tried to keep them informed -
even when the news was not encouraging. In
the end passengers stopped complaining.
Instead they encouraged Bahamasair ground
staff by singing their praises.
"Imagine, she is apologising," said a pas-
senger from Miami Springs. "They're saving us
from Continental, American and the rest of
them and she is apologising that the plane is
running an hour later than she quoted us.
That's nine hours better than the other guys
and she's saving my vacation."
Another passenger, who also transferred to
Bahamasair, said that at the crack of dawn
that morning he and his friends had driven
from Connecticut to New York to catch the
flight to Miami to take the Continental Con-
nection to Nassau. A Continental gold card
member, he vowed to write to the chairman of
the board about the treatment he had received
in Miami. It seemed that Continental had lost
a loyal passenger.
It is short-sighted for any airline to shrug off
its passengers by blaming someone else for
their misfortune. No passenger is interested in
a third party. They are looking to the airline
whose ticket they are holding to protect them.
When that airline fails them, then passengers
switch loyalties.
Bahamasair should give its ground staff
special training in dealing with passengers, so
that even in the most desperate situations they
can win a passenger's confidence and deflate
his anger. Information is all that most pas-
sengers want, and it is information that is so
lacking at too many airport counters.
But on this occasion it was hats off to "Miss
Kitty", Mr "Woodie" and Mr King -
Bahamasair's ground staff in Miami.


Concern at





Junkanoo





decision


EDITOR, The Tribune
WELL? bullah? blow me
down! Here we go again!
Another Junkanoo Parade on
Grand Bahama ends in contro-
versy with the winning group
like the general public being
just as surprised that they actu-
ally won. What has now been
established here on Grand
Bahama is the fact that it is not
always the best man who wins.
In this case, it is not necessarily
the best junkanoo group that
wins.
On Grand Bahama, the
Swingers Junkanoo Group has
earned the distinction of being a
cut above the rest and the pace-
setter as far as junkanoo is con-
cerned. The Swingers have
maintained a standard that oth-
er groups try to emulate. How-
ever, time after time, it appears
that the Swingers are the vic-
tims of the system as during
competition, rules are construed
as harshly against them as pos-
sible by the Grand Bahama
Junkanoo Committee. The
Swingers are never given the
benefit of any doubt. Often-
times, this has meant the loss
of the competition over very
trivial penalties and others less
deserving end up being the vic-
tor. No other group on Grand
Bahama has been more
penalised than the Swingers in
recent years.
Just last year, after winning
most of the categories, the
Swingers were denied their
earned victory. The GB
Junkanoo Committee decided
that unlike the other participat-
ing groups, the Swingers would
be penalised for too many par-
ticipants being in cloth even
though other groups may have
violated this rule just as much.
The fact that there may have
been some people in cloth still
did not take away the fact that
the other costumes, dancers and
leads were fantastic.
The Superstar Rockers who
were awarded the parade did
not win a single category and
placed second in just one cate-
gory...Clearly, they were far
from being the best group in
the parade. This writer sub-
mitted a letter to the Editor
indicating that "To win you
must win"? My God to be the
winner, you MUST win some-
thing!
This year when the groups
lined up, there was no doubt in
the minds of most spectators as
to which group was most out-
standing and in a class all by
itself. With the appearance of


the Swingers, most people felt
that it was time to go home as
the show was definitely over.
The presentation of the
Swingers was superior to any
group. Never before has a
group on Grand Bahama dis-
played such creativity, imagina-
tion and excellence. The cos-
tumes were most appropriate
for the theme and were won-
derfully finished and decorated
with a clean finish both back
and front.
Futhermore, most of the cos-
tumes and dancers were three-
dimensional. Because of this
superior quality in workman-
ship, some people erroneously
speculated that these costumes
were fabricated in Nassau as
they were as good if not better
than what is expected from
groups in Nassau.
For the record and most
important of all is the fact that
ALL of the Swingers costumes
were constructed on Grand
Bahama, unlike some of the
other groups who brought their
costumes in from Nassau. In
any reasonable mind, by far, the
Swingers were way ahead, and
should have easily won the
parade. At least two daily news-
papers, the Freeport News and
the Bahama Journal, have stat-
ed that the Swingers were defi-
nitely the crowds favourite.
On the other hand, the cos-
tumes of the Classic Dancers
were flat, unimaginative and in
some cases incomplete. Unlike
the Swingers whose costumes
were properly pasted and
fringed both back and front, in
most cases for the Classic
Dancers including the lead cos-
tumes, the back was not pasted
in junkanoo style but simply
PAINTED with white paint. It
is amazing how the judges
could have overlooked this.
The story by Classic Dancer
leader Ken "Motorboat" Fer-
guson that some of their cos-
tumes were destroyed by hur-
ricane Wilma is insignificant as
every group, including the
Swingers, had also lost cos-
tumes due to Wilma.
- No group was probably more
surprised at winning than the


Classic Dancers themselves.
Historically, whenever there
has been a lengthy deliberation
by the Junkanoo Committee as
to who won, some fault has
always been ruled against the
Swingers to deny their just
reward.
As I listened to the midday
news on ZNS the day after the
parade while driving up Inter-
state-95 near Fort Pierce on
the way back to Boston, I
informed my wife that it didn't
look good for the Swingers as
these delays only serve as an
excuse to concoct some penal-
ty against the Swingers. It
should have been just simple
mathematics, addition or sub-
traction to determine the
scores. With the computer, this
process should have just taken
minutes. Lo and behold my
hunch turned out to be cor-
rect. Even with penalties, the
Swingers should have won that
parade by far.
In his victory speech, a
stunned Ken "Motorboat" Fer-
guson pretended to be both
humble and gracious. Clearly
this victory caught him off guard
as surely he did not realistically
expect his group to win. This
was a far cry from the attitude
that "Motorboat" had main-
tained for the Junkanoo Com-
mittee before. Just a couple of
years ago, he had condemned
the Junkanoo Committee as
being ignorant of the junkanoo
rules and that the judges did not
know anything about junkanoo.
When persons like myself chal-
lenged the system as being
unfair, I was publicly rebutted
and rebuked by "Motorboat"
and his public relations mouth-
piece Peter Adderley, who went
as far as to demand Radio
Bahamas on the show
"Junkanoo Talk" to limit my
air time when I was voicing con-
cerns about unfairness in
junkanoo judging.
On Grand Bahama, like the
rest of the Bahamas who
watched this parade, the con-
clusion drawn by any objective
viewer is the fact that "The
Swingers were robbed!" of their
well deserved victory.

Anti-social
behaviour
due to 'lack
of community'

THE decline of the front
porch as a place to meet and
talk was yesterday cited as a
reason for growing anti-social
behaviour in the modern
Bahamas.
"We don't have the cama-
raderie in the neighborhoods
that we used to have," Mr God-
frey Eneas told a radio talk
show.
"There was a time when you
would always see grandmother
or someone sitting on the porch.
But there are no more porches,
there are back patios."
Mr Eneas, an agriculturalist
and historian, said such archi-
tectural features influenced the
way people lived their lives.
Community spirit was also
encouraged by old-style yards,
where there would probably be
five or six small houses clus-
tered together.
"There was always a tenden-
cy to congregate in the yard and
the house was used to sleep and
cook. People tended to be more
together and looked after one
another. In some ways it was
an extension of a village."
Lamenting the decline of old
neighborhoods, Mr Eneas said
he was from The Pond, which
was now a "totally" commer-
cial area.
"People have moved out and
it has affected the churches. The
community church doesn't exist
anymore," he said on Love 97's
Issues of the Day.
"There are no more schools
in the area. In my day there
were three or four schools. The
whole district has changed."
Although many Nassau com-
munities had been similarly
impacted, even highly successful
,Bahamians often harkened
back to their roots and the
neighborhoods where they
grew up, he said.
But they had become too
'physically removed from these
areas to engage in rebuilding
them, he added.

Chief Justice's



concern at



inexperienced



lawyers


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamian judiciary is deeply
concerned that there are too many
inexperienced lawyers in the coun-
try.
During his speech at the official
opening of the legal year, Chief Jus-
tice Sir Burton Hall said that despite
the statutory requirements for under-
going pupilage after being called to
the Bar in the Bahamas, there are
too many inexperienced and ill-pre-
pared practitioners.
He said the lawyers act "often as
sole practitioners, dis-serving an
unquestioning and unsuspecting pub-
lic; so many members of which
require legal service in their families
and property disputes, business deal-
ings, landlord and tenant disagree-
ments and, of course, criminal mat-
ters."
Sir Burton said that "however
painful it might be for a judge to
see a litigant harmed by an incom-
petent lawyer, the judge is con-
strained from attempting any res-
cue, lest he be compromise his


duty as an impartial arbiter."
He therefore urged the Bahamas
SBar Association to follow the lead of
the judiciary and institutionalise con-
tinuing legal education.
At the moment, 778 attorneys have
been called to the Bahamian Bar -
61 of them in 2005.
The Chief Justice used the occa-
sion of the opening to highlight a
number of concerns addressed by the
judiciary in 2005.
These included the computerisa-
tion of the office of the judiciary, set
for later this month, and finding
accommodation for justices.
Sir Burton went on to say that far
too many law firms are sending out
applications which have to be sent
back for corrections by probate clerks.
"Internal investigations reveal that
during the year 2005, probate clerks
checked 759 new applications and
650, or 85.6 per cent of those appli-
cations were returned to the law firms
for correction," he said.
Sir Burton also urged parliament
to consider examining the substan-
tive laws related to the Election Court
ahead of the next general election.

Surprise at Cable Beach hotel staff complaint


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
GUEST services atten-
dants at the Wyndham Nas-
sau Resort and Crystal Palace
claim that they are not being
treated fairly something
denied by the hotels' man-
agement
In a letter to The Tribune,
guest services employees
made allegations concerning
not having new uniforms, their
pay and other issues.
The attendants, who include
bell hops, doormen and valet
parkers, claimed that over the
last four years they have not
had new uniforms and have
only been given three uni-
forms to work five and six-day
weekly shifts.
But in an interview with
The Tribune yesterday Robert
Sands, vice-president of exter-
nal relations at Baha Mar, said
that since Cable Beach resorts

"The bellmen and guest ser-

that they participated in this
arrangement in making the

aware too that measurements
and sizes have been submit-
ted sometime in late Novem-
ber and orders have been
placed for new uniforms," said
Mr Sands.
The attendants also claimed
that that bellmen are paid
$164 weekly, and said that if
they have to work a short day
week "that means there are
no guests in the hotel, so you
can't make any tips."
Mr Sands said that regard-
ing their wages, they have

Agri-business 'vital to


success of tourism'


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
AGRI-BUSINESS and her-
itage tourism are crucial to the
future success of tourism as an
industry and must be explored
with a sense of urgency by
Bahamian policy makers,
according to Professor Rex Net-
tleford.
Professor Nettleford, an
accomplished writer, educator,
and cultural icon, wants to see
the Bahamian government
move to create strategic
alliances with farmers.
He said agri-business is an
underdeveloped industry in the
Bahamas, despite the fact that
the Family Islands are "natu-
rally endowed for serious agri-
culture".
Mr Nettleford, a native of


Jamaica and vice chancellor
emeritus of the University of
the West Indies, was invited to
give the opening address at the
third annual National Tourism
Conference at the Wyndham
Resort yesterday.
His address, on the topic: "My
Bahamas: to a common, loftier
goal", preceded presentations
by Tourism director general
Vernice Walkine, who gave the
2006 business plan, and deputy
director Tommy Thompson,
who spoke on travel trends
The professor said: "Farmers
could be providing a far greater
share of fresh vegetables and
dairy products for visitor and
local consumption than they
now do.
"I am aware of a number of
Caribbean destinations which
have invested in agri-business
with the tourist industry target-


ed as a major consumer of
goods produced. But not
enough of this is pursued, and
private investors within cofn-
tries as well as governments
inviting foreign investment into
the Bahamas need to bring
investors' attention to this
important aspect of a country's
development. "
Tourism training must start
at the primary school levelAie
added, because "there is enough
in our history and our contem-
porary life to breed doubts,
ambivalence, and a muted hOs-
tility to the hospitality industry".
The way forward for t'he
industry, said Professor Nettle-
ford, is "community tourism) -
especially in terms of "small-
scale habitats" in which visitors
stay with local families or reit
guest-house villas or apart-
ments, he said.

Developers 'face




many obstacles'


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
BAHAMIAN-BORN developers in the Family
islands are complaining that they face unreasonable
obstacles in becoming tourism entrepreneurs.
Speaking at this week's National Tourism Con-
ference, two such individuals spoke about their
problems with funding, saying that money for
investment does not go to those who were born
here.
Ken Bowe, owner of Chat n' Chill on Stacking
Island, Exuma, said: "Money for investment in the
Bahamas does not go to Bahamians. It goes to for-
eigners and the families of politicians. So you have
to count your pennies and realise that your dream
will not come along. You have to drag it along."
Sammy Thurston, owner of Sammy T's in Ben-
nett's Harbour, Cat Island, said the two were
only able to talk about their accomplishments
today, after putting in years of hard work.
Mr Thurston, however, said he was fortunate
enough to have had help from the Bahamas
Development Bank, admitting that his acquain-
tance with the staff there was helpful in his acqui-
sition of funds. Help from the ban, along with
that of his friends and his own savings, allowed him
to develop his seven-room cottage-style suites.
It took Mr Thurston three years to get his busi-


ness off the ground, but today it is already becom-
ing a hot spot for tourists visiting Cat Island.
A major issue for developers is lack of infra-
structure on the Family Islands.
Apart from providing basic necessities such as
electricity, drinkable water, waste disposal and
communications, getting to the islands by sea or
air and getting around the islands on suitable
roads was seen as just as important.
Brendan Foulkes, moderator for the "Going
Back to the Island" session, said that these issues
have turned many away from the Family Islands.
Mr Bowe has improvised in light of these trou-
bles. He uses a generator for electricity, and he
has brought in his own reverse osmosis plant,
utilising sea water as his source.
Not only do developers face many challenges,
but so do persons seeking to leave the capital
city and work in the Family Islands.
Natalie Roberts, of Four Seasons in Exuma,
said city dwellers moving to the islands will face
a culture shock. At the top of her list of obstacles
is housing.
She says that finally in Exuma, islanders are
responding to the housing needs by constructing
dwellings. However, the rates for rental are "sky
high".
The distance also creates the problem of getting
supplies on time.

environment

'should not

just be

preserved

for tourists'

By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
SAFEGUARDING the
integrity of the Bahamian envi-
ronment primarily for Bahami-
ans should be more important
than preserving it for visitors,
asserted a distinguished
Caribbean author and cultural
icon.
Addressing the National
Tourism Conference, Professor
Rex Nettleford said the theme:
"My Bahamas, to a Common,
Loftier Goal", must be execut-
ed by ensuring that the
Bahamas remains a place for
Bahamians always.
He said tourists must come
to enjoy the country "with
Bahamians, not despite them".
"Tourists have to be made to
understand that they are com-
ing to a country inhabited by
human beings, rather than to a
beach made up of sand," he
said. "And as human beings,
we are no less endangered than
our beaches, our reefs, our flo-
ra, and what fauna we have."
He analysed the phrase: "To
a Common, Loftier Goal". The
word "common" suggested to
him "the all-inclusiveness which
society that the likes of us have
,inherited, never really provid-
ed".
"The old hierarchical struc-
tures based on class categoriza-
tions underlined in race and col-
or, are by and large disappear-
ing fast enough if not altogeth-
er. If truth be told, since 1967,
things have changed to bring
Bahamians both on this side of
and over the hill into a unit of
nationhood."
"Loftier goal", he said, should
mean a society free from fear,
hunger, from disease, and from
ignorance the kind of civilized
entity worth inhabiting on the
part of Bahamians themselves
and in turn, worth visiting on
the part of the tourist.

Majority Rule has been

IT seems odd to sugg

On January 10, 1967, a r

promised exclusively of wt
British subjects by way c

ratic process that no do

absolutely right when he said
lew that January 10, 1967, estab-
nci- lished democracy in The
ects Bahamas in the truest sense.
om- After all, the literal inter-
hite pretation of the Greek mean-
of a ing of democracy is "people
oc- rule" and January 10, 1967,
ubt established firmly a new polit-
'ast ical reality in The Bahamas
ial- where "the people" by any
qew reasonable interpretation
ruled their circumstances in
ant the majority as opposed to
was where a privileged minority
did.
For this writer, it is the vic-
tory of democracy that is cen-
tral to the importance of
majority rule as opposed to
the victory of one skin colour
over another.
If democracy does not reign
today, as it has not done in
some isolated circumstances,
the suffering that black
Bahamians experienced at the
hands of those oppressive
white Bahamians could be
experienced at the hands of
their own black Bahamians.
In fact, the many instances
of victimisation and abuse of
power experienced by some
black Bahamians by black
Bahamians since Majority
Rule is proof of this.
Let us not forget that a com-
mon cry during the 1992 gen-
eral elections was relief from
the victimisation and "all for
me" attitude of the governing
party at the time, compro-
mised almost exclusively of
black Bahamians.
If we do not suffer whole-
sale abuse at the hands of
those who govern us, black or
white, it is because democracy
I prevents such from occurring.
There is no doubt that the
great champions of the
S achievement of Majority Rule
were principally black men
and women, though a number
of white men, including the
founders of the PLP, such as
Cyril Stevenson and Sir Henry
Taylor, were key players in the
struggle.
It is also true that the great
beneficiaries of Majority Rule
were the masses of black peo-
ple, though white Bahamians
have also benefited by it, since
it has firmly established a
democracy that protects their
minority status. This notwith-
standing, it narrows the nobil-
ity of Majority Rule to make it

a one-party achievement or to
resign it purely to a matter of
race, though the latter was a
large element of it.
Majority Rule should be a
national holiday and deserved-
ly so because its contribution
to the establishment of a full
democracy in The Bahamas
cannot be overstated.
However, so long as it is
treated as the singular achieve-
ment of one political party and
used by that party as an enti-
tlement to forever be regarded
as the most appropriate party


"Majority
Rule should be
a national
holiday and
deservedly so
because its
contribution
to the
establishment
of a full
democracy in
The Bahamas
cannot be
overstated."


to govern the nation, it will
not enjoy the popular consen-
sus that it should.
Additionally, so long as
some politicians try to use
Majority Rule to promote
political advantage by inciting
racial tensions, the purity of
that achievement will be so
marred as to hamper its deep-
er appreciation.
Those who say that we need
to teach the history of Major-
ity Rule more are correct but
not from the jaundiced per-
spective that they tend to
have. We need to teach it with
the dispassion, albeit under-
standable feelings, that it is
taught by persons like Dr Gail
Saunders and Sir Arthur
Foulkes.
If we get cockeyed politics
out of the way of Majority


Rule, it will be the holiday that
it should be and black
Bahamians as well as white
Bahamians should embrace it
as a triumph of a people over
a great political vice, that vice
being a failing democracy.
TOURISM'S SALVATION
IS RESOLUTION

Our tourism product
today is being under-
mined by the fact that too
many Bahamians, many of
whom work in the industry,
have not resolved the conflict
between what tourists expect
when they come to The
Bahamas and what they are
prepared to give them when
they come.
For example, many visitors
to our shores expect to see
smiling faces greeting them
when they arrive and for many
Bahamians in the field, giving
a smiling face is too much to
ask when they resent what
they regard as servitude to a
people who resemble their for-
mer oppressors and who seek
a pampering they themselves
cannot get at home.
It is not unreasonable for
the Ministry of Tourism to try
to survey Bahamians to obtain
a genuine sense of what they
are prepared to give tourists,
in terms of service, when they
visit The Bahamas.
If this is done, the ministry
will have a better sense of
what to address or promote.
If, for instance, the survey
reveals that the majority of
practitioners in the field are
not prepared to give tourists
a warm smile, then the min-
istry would know that it must
now engage a campaign to
promote the same, especially if
a warm smile is what tourists
expect and what the ministry
markets.
All disappointment is a mat-
ter of expectation and any dis-
appointed tourist reflects tle
failure of a destination to meet
his or her expectation. It
therefore makes sense to
know what the expectations of
visitors are, what the destina-
tion. is prepared to do in rela-
tion to those expectations and
come to a resolution that fully
embraces the reality of tle
same.
THOUGHT
FOR THE WEEK
Only those who question
their worth and dignity despise
the nobility of service.

Demaris Thompson, assistant
director at the Ministry of Edu-
'cation, praised Captain Tom

"wealth of knowledge" to the
shores of Grand Bahama.
"Reading is knowledge and
knowledge is power and we
thank you for sharing your time,
talent and treasures with us here
In Freeport," Mrs Thompson
aid during the opening cere-
mony onboard the ship.
? Over the next six days, Grand
Bahama residents will have
access to more than 4,000 titles

Christian topics.
The public is also invited to
attend conferences on the ship
nd to meet persons of various
backgrounds and nationalities.

crew of 200 volunteers from 45
countries. Its mission is to bring
"knowledge, hope and help". It is
part of the worldwide interde-
nominational Christian ministry
called Operation Mobilisation.
"We are very pleased to
anchor in the Bahamas follow-
ing three rough days at sea after
setting sail from Bermuda," said
Captain Dyer.
"I am glad to be in the
Bahamas again. I have been with
the ministry since 1980 and my
first trip to Nassau was in 1982,
and it was a great experience."
The ship is expected to visit
Nassau on March 17.
Mr Dyer said the crew is
looking forward to forming fel-
lowships with local churches,
church leaders and young per-
sons, as well as doing some
community service.
Students from the various
public schools will be visiting
the ship. during its stayin-Grand
Bahama.


Mrs Thompson said that the
ministry has intensified its read-
ing programme in schools and
has placed special emphasis
on adult literacy in Grand
Bahama.
"More than 12 years ago the
ministry launched an intensive
reading programme called Let's
Read Bahamas. Today, the pro-
gramme is still in existence and
I have noticed that more per-
sons are reading now," Mrs
Thompson said.
More than 34 million visitors
have visited the book fair since
the ship's ministry began in
1970. Visitors are offered a

THE T N T A R 1, 0


Former Bahamasair



chief 'likely' to



take over at WSC


FROM page one
locked in a bitter feud for months, with the
general manager claiming that Mr Demeritte has
essentially usurped his position at the corporation,
even though Mr Demeritte technically is not an
Executive chairman.
However, Mr Demeritte has been credited with
making bold transitional changes at the corpora-
tion, reversing what sources claimed were previ-
ous political promotions.
Also, Mr Demeritte has granted over 100 pro-
motions valued at more than $1 million to other
employees reportedly "overlooked" at previous
promotional intervals.
However, according to well-placed sources, the
corporation's "infighting" has forced the prime
minister and Mr Roberts, the minister responsible
for WSC, to intervene.
Asked which executive at WSC would be ter-
,minated, Mr Roberts assured The Tribune that
.the government will be making an announce-
:ment "very shortly".
S"But most certainly one is gone. There is no
doubt about that," he said.
Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, deputy
-ENM leader Brent Symonette said the govern-
omrent is facing substantial problems with WSC


and Bahamasair.
"The government is faced with considerable
chaos at WSC and also having considerable dif-
ficulties at Bahamasair and I'm not sure if it's
the time now to comment further.
"The opposition will review the facts as they
become known to us and we will make a state-
ment in due course as to what the concerns are in
that regard," he said.
Taking over in Mr Major's post at Bahama-
sair will be Henry Woods, who was previously the
airline's deputy general manager of operations.
Mr Woods will now be acting general manager
of Bahamasair. However, his promotion is not
being looked upon favourably by some in the
industry.
Mr Woods was cited in the Commission of
Inquiry in 1995, with commissioners recom-
mending that "investigations should be instituted
into the conduct of Mr Woods in relation to
alleged kickbacks and improper use of [Bahama-
sair's] resources."
When questioned about the use of Bahama-
sair maintenance personnel on one occasion for
assisting with construction work on a building he
was erecting in Nassau, Mr Woods admitted that
he had done this and that it was an "improper way
of using Bahamasair's personnel".


Harbour Island


project to be


re-examined


FROM page one
The North Eleuthera MP
explained that the proposed
leasing of part of a 100-year-
old ramp is causing tremen-
dous concern to residents of
Harbour Island, as it is dis-
placing fishermen and ferry
boat operators.
He said that 40 feet of the
100 feet wide ramp have
already been leased to the
Valentine's Resort and Mari-
na and that a further 30 feet
are now being considered for
leasing to a local business-
woman.
' This arrangement, he said,
would leave only a narrow
strip for local fishermen. "This
will really cause a problem,"
he said.
Mr Smith explained that the
ramp is used by fishermen to
clean their fish and scrub their
boats. ., ,; .
"At least 12 fishermen and
18 ferry boat operators use it,"
he said.
:The North Eleuthera MP
said that when the lease by
the local businesswoman was
approved in principle by local


government, the proposal
indicated that small stalls
would be erected on the ramp.
However, in a later written
submission, the business-
woman requested the
approval of a 30 by 30 feet
two-storey structure. This pro-
posal was denied by local gov-
ernment.
Mr Smith said he under-
stands that although this pro-
posed structure has now been
scaled down in size to 20 by 20
feet, the local businesswoman
never re-submitted her pro-
posal and was still able to
obtain a building permit.
He further said that,
although the proposed struc-
ture is smaller in size, it will
feature a verandah which will
still impact the fishermen
using the ramp.
Mr Christie said that he
would, not like Harbour
Islanders to get.the impres-
sion that approval to lease
part of the ramp was given to
the large investor Valentine's
and is being withheld from a
local businesswoman. He said
he will further examine the
situation.

Majority Rule 'should

not create divide

between races'


FROM page one
iahamians were given access
.to higher education after
Majority Rule, but a large num-
;ler of white Bahamians were
4aso "released to higher educa-
Xion."
''"More white people made
greater progress than black peo-
ple (after Majority Rule)," he
said.
1,He also pointed out that
many white Bahamians, as well
4s foreigners, took part in the
fight for Majority Rule.


Mr Christie said it is impor-
tant not to recoil from the
"black and white issue", but to
understand that racial division is
a part of the country's past
which should be viewed in its
historical context.
The prime minister added
that he always made an effort to
reach out to all Bahamians, and
made it a point to also connect
with the white Bahamian com-
munity.
He said it was always his goal
to know the white community
"by name and industry."

Parliament moving in Bay

Street redevelopment


FROM page one
The prime minister said the
transformation of Bay Street
will create a space for condo-


miniums and broadwalks, and
lead to the building of a new
port outside of the downtown
area, "which will serve us for
the next 50 years."


American TV show

on Atlantis dolphins

FROM page one tional as "irresponsible."
Sam Duncombe, founder of
agreement with Marine Animal ReEarth, criticised the resort


Productions (MAP), owners of
the Oceanarium and the dol-
phins, whereby Kerzner agreed
to acquire MAP.
A local activist labelled the
acquisition by Kerzner Interna-


for its decision.
She said the company had act-
ed as if it was taking action to
save the dolphins when, in reality,
they were being removed from
one form of captivity to another.

151 jobs created for Bahamians to date. Over the next
10 years Baker's Bay Club -- through the developers,
contractors, and local vendors -- will employ over
1,000 Bahamians, injecting over $85M in new wages
into the economy.

SDiscovery Land Company has made an investment in
Guana Cay of $40M to date with an additional $230M
to be spent by the developers over the next 5 years.

a A $10M expenditure on infrastructure/community
buildings will benefit the entire settlement of Great
Guana Cay.

r The Project is expected to generate $549.3M in total
tax revenue to The Bahamas Government over the
next 10 years.

Over ten years the project is anticipated to generate
over $1 billion of direct and indirect goods and ser-
vices for The Bahamas, including revenues for print-
ing, publishing, entertainment, transportation, food
and beverage supplies, sanitation services, chemi-
cals, textiles, furniture and equipment, landscaping
and more.

*- The Project is being developed on 585 acres, of which
460 acres is private land. Previous plans to develop
this land were much more intrusive than our plan. Of
the approximately 105 acres of Crown Land in the
Project, over 50% of this land will be held in a pre-
serve for all Bahamians. The remaining land is leased
to the developer on market terms.

Just 6/100 stopovers


rate


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

visitors rated the Bahamas
as a "unique destination"
based on their visit to Nas-
sau/Paradise Island, it was
revealed yesterday, the Ministry of
Tourism's director-general blaming
this low rating on failing to meet visi-
tor expectations by "not providing
enough opportunities for an authentic
Bahamian experience".
Unveiling the Ministry's Business
Plan for 2006, Vernice Walkine said
that apart from the stopover rating,
a ratio of just 10 out of 100 cruise ship
visitors said they saw "something spe-
cial" about the Bahamas as a "unique"
destination, based on their experi-
ences of Nassau, during a March 2005
survey.
Visitors
In addition, just 20 out of 100 cruise
visitors, and 26 out of 100 stopover
visitors, said they found a lot of activ-
ities to do after arriving in Nassau/Par-
adise Island.


Bahamas


'unique'


More 'authentic Bahamian experiences'

needed, with just 11% per cent of stopovers

finding enough retail variety on Bay Street


Ms Walkine said: "I think their
[tourists] expectations are such that
we are not meeting their expectations
once they arrive here. We are not pro-
viding enough opportunities for them
to have an authentic Bahamian expe-
rience."
She added that Junkanoo, proba-
bly the most recognisable and popular
element of Bahamian culture, only
staged two parades per year and was
not readily available for tourist access
on a weekly or even daily basis. This
was something she wanted to change.
"We have to find some ways of pro-
viding this authentic Bahamian expe-
rience, so visitors who come here say:
'That was special'. That's what's miss-
ing in my view."
Improving the visitor experience


was one of the Ministry of Tourism's
key goals for 2006, Ms Walkine said.
She added that surveys had found that
just 23 per cent of cruise visitors, and
11 per cent of stopover visitors, felt
,there was enough variety in terms of
retail stores on Bay Street.
Experience
"Bay Street and the whole down-.
town experience has been less than
ideal for some time," Ms Walkine
said. "Visitors are really telling us
there's not a lot to do. Cruise visitors
are telling us there's not enough for
them. Chances are they're not going to
get off the ship. Nassau is not offering
something new to those who've been
here before."


She was backed by Tommy Thomp-
son, the Ministry of Tourism's deputy
director-general, who described the
traffic-choked Bay Street on a Friday
afternoon as "deplorable".
He added: "Any visitor coming off
the cruise ship will take one look
down there and go right back to the
ship. It's not going to encourage them
to come back as stopover visitors."
Mr Thompson said the solution was
for Bahamians to adopt a "holistic"
approach and take pride in the
appearance of Bay Street themselves.
Apart from the poor retail rating,
Ministry of Tourism surveys had also
shown that just 31 per cent of cruise
ship visitors, and 17 percent of
stopover visitors, ate and drank in
Bahamian restaurants and bars out-


side the major resorts.
As a result, the Bahamas was
unlikely to be maximising per capital
visitor spending, or gaining the widest
possible distribution of tourist rev-
enues, as these appeared to be con-
centrated with the largest hotels.
Counter
To counter this, Ms Walkine said
the Ministry was looking to stage
events that were uniquely Bahamian,
and had sponsored 'signature events'
on each Family Island.-
Given the "real interest" from
tourists in.exploring various Bahami-
an communities, Ms Walkine said the
Ministry was set to emphasise Her-
itage Sites and supporting activities.
Sports, religious, African-American
and Latin America were all niche
tourist markets set for exploration.
Safety, relaxation and cleanliness
were key attractions of the Bahamas
to tourists, Ms Walkine said. A survey
between January to March 2005 had
shown that tourists felt relatively safe

'Tremendous potential'

in China, Latin America
a By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THERE is "tremendous potential" for the Bahamas to tap into
emerging tourism markets in China and Latin America, the Ministry
of Tourism's deputy director-general said yesterday, although this
nation needed to develop direct airlift to the latter region.
Tommy Thompson told the National Tourism Conference that
while generally "the outlook looks robust for the islands of the
Bahamas" in 2006, the Bahamas had to get direct airlift to Latin
America which presented a significant "add-on" to its core US vis-
itor markets.
Mr Thompson said that Latin American visitors to the Bahamas
had to come through the US, and many often only obtained single-
entry US visas, which caused prob-
lems on their return. SEE page 3B

EDUCATION and the
reluctance of Bahamas-based
commercial banks to invest in
the infrastructure needed to
settle Internet-related financial
transactions are among the
main "impediments to the
growth" of a Bahamian e-com-
merce industry, the Chamber
of Commerce's executive direc-
tor said.
Addressing a National
Tourism Conference master
class on how technology could
be used to drive the tourism


business, Mr Simon said that
rather than access, education
was among the main obstacles
to Bahamian e-commerce.
The cost of access had been
significantly reduced through
competition between the likes
of Cable Bahamas' Coralwave
and BTC's DSL products, plus
satellite connectivity, but Mr
Simon said: "There is a discon-
nect between what can be and
what is, and that disconnect is
first and foremost the ability

THE Government is "ever so close" to
concluding the management contract for
Nassau International Airport (NIA) with
YVRAS, the international subsidiary of
the Vancouver airport operator, the Min-
istry of Tourism's director-general said
yesterday.
NIA's rundown state, lack of amenities
and the bad impression it leaves in the
minds of visitors again came to the fore-
front at the Ministry of Tourism's Nation-
al Conference, and Vernice Walkine
acknowledged that it undermined the Min-


istry's advertising and marketing cam-
paigns.
She said it was hard for the Ministry to
promote slogans such as 'It's better in the
Bahamas' "with the greatest degree of
credibility" due to the sorry condition of
NIA, which acted as the gateway to this
nation for visitors to both Nassau/Paradise
Island and many Family Islands.
Ms Walkine said many travellers visiting
Family Island destinations, who had to
pass through NIA and kill time there
before catching connecting flights, "won-
der: 'What am I getting into?' before they
even get there".
She added, though, that her under-

standing was that "we are ever so close to

"I believe that's the first step to getting
a world class airport," Ms Walkine said.
"We get more complaints about that [the
airport] than I care to admit. I hope to live
long enough to see the start of a new ter-
minal."
She added that the Ministry had been
assured construction of a new terminal
building for NIA, and its completion,

Tour Of Cuty


GOWON N. G. BOWE


The partners of PricewaterhouseCoopers, Bahamas (the Firm) would like to welcome
Gowon N.G. Bowe back to his home office, following a tour of duty with the United Kingdom
firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers, London, England office, Banking & Capital Markets
division (B&CM). Gowon is a manager in Firm's Assurance & Business Advisory Services
group.
Gowon began his career with the Firm in January 1998 as an intern, as part of his bachelor
of commerce degree programme, and joined the firm on a full-time basis in September
2000. In 2001 he passed all parts of the Uniform Examination of Certified Public Accountants,
on his first attempt, with an average score of 95.25, placing him second in the State of
Georgia, USA. In September 2003 he was seconded to B&CM.
Gowon spent two (2) years with B&CM completing his tour in September 2005. His tour
was organised through the PricewaterhouseCoopers organization's (PwC) Global Mobility
Programme (the GM Programme), which is designed to provide the best people of local
offices with an opportunity to work in other offices in PwC's global network; and to specialise
in one or more of the many facets of PwC's professional service offerings. The principal
objective of the GM Programme is to produce highly experienced staff capable of working
in any country in the world, and thereby solidifying PwC's position as the leading global
professional services organisation.
During his tour, Gowon had the opportunity to provide assurance and advisory services
to several of PwC's largest global clients doing business in the financial services industry
including bancassurers: involved in insurance and retail:and investment banking; and
brokers and wealth management firms involved in futures, forwards, securities and
derivatives markets. Gowon's tour enabled him to specialise in multiple aspects of
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) through his role as a manager on the
IFRS conversion project for a top five (5) bancassurer listed on the London Stock Exchange
and New York Stock Exchange. Additionally, Gowon was the lead manager on the same
client's US GAAP audit and filings with the United States Securities and Exchange
Commission, working closely with the US GAAP technical accounting department of PwC.
He was instrumental in multiple accounting solutions under both IFRS and US GAAP
presented to, and adopted by, his clients.
While in London, Gowon represented the Firm with distinction. Upon joining B&CM he
quickly demonstrated his capabilities and became a highly-rated staff member, as well as
key member of B&CM's technical training team and mentor for junior staff members. This
was affirmed by a promotion to Manager effective 1 January 2005 after just over four (4)
years cumulatively with PwC, Bahamas and PwC, UK, which ranks amongst the fastest
promotions to Manager in either firm.
Gowon's experience in B&CM will no doubt serve the Firm well, given the Firm's reputation
and standing as one of the market leaders for the provision of assurance and business
advisory services to companies doing business in the financial services industry. Specifically,
his experience with bancassurance clients reporting under both IFRS and US GAAP is
expected to prove beneficial to the Firm's banking and insurance clients. Further, with
the global regulatory initiatives aimed at enhanced independence for assurance providers,
auditors are limited with respect to the types of non-audit services that they are permitted
to provide to their clients. Having regard to Gowon's advisory experience, he will likely be
a key player in the development of a greater number of non-audit service relationships
with clients audited by other accounting firms.
Gowon summarized his two (2) year tour of duty as an "invaluable experience," since it
enabled him to expand his knowledge of accounting standards and be privy to the numerous
debates over the interpretation of such standards as well as the practical difficulties faced
in implementing these standards. He was afforded the opportunity to work on multinational
audits, and experience first-hand the issues faced by such organizations. According to
Gowon, the greatest benefit of the tour was the network of individuals he came into contact
with and can now drawn upon, including accounting technical specialists (both in the UK
and US); partners, managers and staff providing assurance and advisory services to a wide
range of UK and multinational clients. He views the GM Programme as a key advantage
of working for a truly global firm, and he encourages all young persons to take every
opportunity to gain international experience in their chosen professions.
Gowon recently exchanged wedding vows with Evanne (nee) Archer, a Senior Associate
also employed by the Firm.

The Bahamas was seen as a
"doable destination" for Latin
American visitors due to its
prox ,aiii ,t MlamniL and the
Ministry of0Toupsm was focus-

Argentina.
Latin Americans generally
tended to travel as couples or
families,.and take seven to 21-
day holidays in visiting a vari-

Mr Thompson said the Min-
istry of-Tounsm was going to be

"Canada is going to be a lot
more'important to the Bahamas

Only 25-30 per cent of US
travellers currently had a pass-
port, and many still returned
after visiting this nation with a
driver's licence or birth certifi-
cate.
Canadians, though, liked all-
inclusive holidays and direct air

Canadians were also more
likely to interact and experience

visitors.
On the US front, Mr Thomp-
son said more travellers were
choosing cruise or timeshare
vacations as opposed to hotels,
with the demand for leisure trav-
el outpacing business. Timeshare
was seen as more flexible and
value for money.
Mr Thompson said US trav-
ellers were also expecting hotels,
airports and convention centres
to be "wired" so they could com-

expecting to have these services

thrilled to promote him to this


important position," said Jack-
son Ritchie, Global United's
president and chief executive.

ping and customs brokerage
industry. In 1987 he joined
Global Customs Brokers,

wake of the September 11
attacks, and a Ports Corpora-
tion was required "to develop
standards and make them con-
sistent across the Bahamas".
In the same vein, she sug-
gested that the Hotel Corpo-
ration of the Bahamas in time
could be transformed into a
Tourism Development Cor-
poration, dealing with invest-
ment incentives for hotels and
the wider industry,, and with a
Tourism Encouragement Act.
In unveiling the Ministry of
Tourism's Business Plan for
2006, Ms Walkine said it
would emulate this year's
advertising takeover of Grand
Central Station in New York,
where the' islands of the
Bahamas dominated, with
another such initiative at Penn
Station.
To remove the slow tourism
period, which commonly takes
place between June to Sep-
tember, Ms Walkine said the'
emphasis would be placed on


events such as Junkanoo in
June and exploiting the con-
vention tax benefit resulting
from the Tax Information
Exchange Agreement (TIEA)
signed with the US.
'Many properties in the
Bahamas are still marginal
because of this [slow period],"
Ms Walkine said.
She added that the Ministry
would also seek to attract
more mid-week visitors to the
Bahamas, with Florida-
Bahamas vacation packages
one area to be exploited.
"That's a huge opportunity
there that we have not really
capitalised on," Ms Walkine
added.
She said the Ministry of
Tourism would "restore the
room stock in Grand Bahama
to at least the levels they were
before the hurricane in 2004",
one area that would be dealt
with "very effectively" in 2006.
The Ministry of Tourism
was set to plan for managed


growth in the Family Islands,
and look to attract investors
to develop more moderately
priced, mid-market hotels for
Nassau/Paradise Island.
It also aimed to set stan-
dards and branding for small
Bahamian hotels so they could
be promoted, too.
Ms Walkine said the Min-
istry wanted to market the
Bahamas as a mini-Caribbean
due to the variety of islands
and experiences to be found.
Grand Bahama was able to
offer everything due to its size,
and Ms Walkine said of the
Family Islands: "We need to
get those names out there
more aggressively in the mar-
ketplace.
"We believe we have a
unique product'in the sense
that we have so many things
to offer visitors. It's hard to
communicate all that to visi-
tors, and it has been a chal-
lenge for us to properly posi-
tion those islands."


NCTU PRESS STATEMENT
NCTU Commemorates 1958 General Strike


Today, the National Congress of Trade Union celebrates the
forty-eight (48th) Anniversary of the 1958 General Strike. It was on
this day January 12, 1958 a group of brave and dedicated Trade
Unionist, took action in what eventually became one of the most
important "acts of disobedience" in the History of the Commonwealth
of the Bahamas.

This milestone played a pivotal place in the growth and
development of the Trade,Union Movement, the call for Social Justice
and solidified the Bahamian Trade Union Movement in history as the
catalyst for social and economic justice for the Bahamian masses.

The Trade dispute began on November 1, 1957 as a result of
the United Bahamian Party Government granting contracts to white
tour companies giving them the exclusive right to transport persons
between the Nassau International Airport and the city of Nassau.

On this day the President of the Bahamas Taxi Cab Union,
Sir Clifford Darling, ordered his members to block the roads to the
airport thus not allowing any traffic to and from the airport, On
November 2, 1957 the Taxi Union called on the BFL for assistance
and Sir Randol Fawkes, the then leader of the Bahamian Federation
of Labour (BFL) instructed the Airport Airline & Allied Workers Union
(AAAWU) headed by Mr. Cadwell Ambrister, Mr. Clement Pinder, Mr.
Anthony Roberts and others to go on a sympathy strike to support
the Taxi drivers, thus closing down the international airport.

An eight-week truce was declared which paved the way for
negotiations. At the end of the truce the Government publicly expressed
its support for the white tour companies to have the exclusive rights
to transport.

Sir. Randol Fawkes and Sir. Lynden Pindling sought an audience
with the then Governor Sir. Oswald R. Arthur to appoint a Royal
Commission of Inquiry to investigate the dispute. The Governor
rejected the request and ordered that the wishes of the Government
be carried out.

On January 10, 1958 the Taxi Union sent a letter to the BFL
requesting support as a result of this latest decision. The Executive
Committee responded immediately and adopted a resolution for a
general strike. The resolution also called for the Freedom of Association
for Hotel and Agriculture workers and for workers to gain greater
dignity and self-respect on the job-site.

On January 12, 1958 Sir Randol Fawkes and Sir Lynden
Pindling entered the Emerald Beach Hotel on West Street and ordered
all employees to go on strike. The groups of workers marched along
West Bay Street and every employee of every hotel joined in the strike.
By January 13 every hotel in the city was closed. By January 14, the


electrical workers, the telephone workers, the construction workers
the street sweepers, the garbage collectors, the airport workers, the
messengers, the clerks from almost every business that the BFL
represented was on strike.

Each night of the strike meetings were held on Windsor Park
in which the workers were addressed by Trade Union leaders. The
strike ended on January 29th, 1958 with the signing of an agreement
between the Bahamas Taxi Cab Union and the Tour Companies
providing more equitable arrangements for transportation of passengers
between the airport and the city. Other clauses of the agreement with
the government included:

1. The establishment of a Labour Department
2. The removal of statutory restrictions of hotel and agriculture
workers to organize
3. The setting up of a Bahamian Transport Authority.

During the strike the Labour Movement received assistance
from many regional and international Trade Union organizations and
paved the way for the "Father of Labour" Sir. Randol Fawkes to travel
around the world sounding the alarm for equality and justice for
Bahamian workers. As a result of the 1958 strike the Colonial Secretary
of the United Kingdom visited the Bahamas and appointed a Royal
Commission of Inquiry. On Sunday, April 13, 1958 the report of the
Commission recommended a number of Changes in the Industrial
Relations Environment in the Bahamas including:

1. Amending Labour Laws to keep in tune with modern times
2. The abolition of the company vote in the Bahamas
3. The approval of one vote to every man over the age of 21
regardless if he owned land in The Bahamas
4. Increase the number of seats House of Assembly from 29
to 33

In celebrating this milestone today, the NCTU reminds the
public that it was the bold and aggressive actions of Trade Unionist
and the collective strength of the working people of the Bahamas that
began the move for social and economic justice for the masses of
Bahamians.

We again call on the Government of the Bahamas to acknowledge
the significant contributions of trade unions to the growth and
development of the Bahamas. We would like to take this opportunity
to request that the Government take immediate steps to draft
legalization to rename Labour Day (Which is celebrated the first Friday
in June of each year ) Sir Randol Fawkes Labour Day.

Anti-social
behaviour
due to 'lack
of community'

THE decline of the front
porch as a place to meet and
talk was yesterday cited as a
reason for growing anti-social
behaviour in the modern
Bahamas.
"We don't have the cama-
raderie in the neighborhoods
that we used to have," Mr God-
frey Eneas told a radio talk
.show.
"There was a time when you
would always see grandmother
or someone sitting on the porch.
But there are no more porches,
there are back'patios."
Mr Eneas, an agriculturalist
and historian, said such archi-
,'tectural features influenced the
'way people lived their lives.
SCommunity spirit was also
*encouraged by old-style yards,
where there would probably be
five or six small houses clus-
tered together.
"There was always a tenden-
cy to congregate in the yard and
the house was used to sleep and
cook. People tended to be more
,together and looked after one
another. In some ways it was
an extension of a village."
Lamenting the decline of old
neighborhoods, Mr Eneas said
he was from The Pond, which
was now a "totally" commer-
cial area.
"People have moved out and
'it has affected the churches. The
'community church doesn't exist
',anymore," he said on Love 97's
SIssues of the Day.
"There are no more schools
"in the area. In my day there
were three or four schools. The
* whole district has changed."
Although many Nassau com-
munities had been similarly
impacted, even highly successful
Bahamians often harkened
back to their roots and the
neighborhoods where they
grew up, he said.
But they had become too
physically removed from these
areas to engage in rebuilding
them, he added.

Chief Justice's



concern at



inexperienced



lawyers


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamian judiciary is deeply
concerned that there are too many
inexperienced lawyers in the coun-
try.
During his speech at the official
opening of the legal year, Chief Jus-
tice Sir Burton Hall said that despite
the statutory requirements for under-
going pupilage after being called to
the Bar in the Bahamas, there are
too many inexperienced and ill-pre-
pared practitioners.
He said the lawyers act "often as
sole practitioners, dis-serving an
unquestioning and unsuspecting pub-
lic; so many members of which
require legal service in their families
and property disputes, business deal-
ings, landlord and tenant disagree-
ments and, of course, criminal mat-
ters."
Sir Burton said that "however
painful it might be for a judge to
see a litigant harmed by an incom-
petent lawyer, the judge is con-
strained from attempting any res-
cue, lest he be compromise his


duty as an impartial arbiter."
He therefore urged the Bahamas
Bar Association to follow the lead of
the judiciary and institutionalise con-
tinuing legal education.
At the moment, 778 attorneys have
been called to the Bahamian Bar -
61 of them in 2005.
The Chief Justice used the occa-
sion of the opening to highlight a
number of concerns addressed by the
judiciary in 2005.
These included the computerisa-
tion of the office of the judiciary, set
for later this month, and finding
accommodation for justices.
Sir Burton went on to say that far
too many law firms are sending out
applications which have to be sent
back for corrections by probate clerks.
"Internal investigations reveal that
during the year 2005, probate clerks
checked 759 new applications and
650, or 85.6 per cent of those appli-
cations were returned to the law firms
for correction," he said.
Sir Burton also urged parliament
to consider examining the substan-
tive laws related to the Election Court
ahead of the next general election.

Surprise at Cable Beach hotel staff complaint


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
GUEST services atten-
dants at the Wyndham Nas-

claim that they are not being
treated fairly something
denied by the hotels' man-
Sagernent
In a letter to The Tribune,
guest services employees
made allegations concerning
not having new uniforms, their
pay and other issues.
The attendants, who include
bell hops, doormen and valet
parkers, claimed that over the
last four years they have not
had new uniforms and have
only been given three uni-
forms to work five and six-day
weekly shifts.
But in an interview with

that since Cable Beach resorts

"The bellmen and guest ser-

aware too that measurements

Mr Sands.
The attendants also claimed
that that bellmen are paid
$164 weekly, and said that if
they have to work a short day

no guests in the hotel, so you
can't make any tips."

Agri-business 'vital to


success of tourism'


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
AGRI-BUSINESS and her-
itage tourism are crucial to the
future success of tourism as an
industry and must be explored
with a sense of urgency by
Bahamian policy makers,
according to Professor Rex Net-
tleford.
Professor Nettleford, an
accomplished writer, educator,
and cultural icon, wants to see
the Bahamian government
move to create strategic
alliances with farmers.
He said agri-business is an
underdeveloped industry in the
Bahamas, despite the fact that
the Family Islands are "natu-
rally endowed for serious agri-
culture".
Mr Nettleford, a native of


Jamaica and vice chancellor
emeritus of the University of
the West Indies, was invited to
give the opening address at the
third annual National Tourism
Conference at the Wyndham
Resort yesterday.
His address, on the topic: "My
Bahamas: to a common, loftier
goal", preceded presentations
by Tourism director general
Vernice Walkine, who gave the
2006 business plan, and deputy
director Tommy Thompson,
who spoke on travel trends
The professor said: "Farmers
could be providing a far greater
share of fresh vegetables and
dairy products for visitor and
local consumption than they
now do.
"I am aware of a number of
Caribbean destinations which
have invested in agri-business
with the tourist industry target-


ed as a major consumer of
goods produced. But not
enough of this is pursued, and
private investors within coun-
tries as well as governments
inviting foreign investment into
the Bahamas need to bring
investors' attention to this
important aspect of a country's
development.
Tourism training must start
at the primary school level, he
added, because "there is enough
in our history and our contem-
porary life to breed doubts,
ambivalence, and a muted hos-
tility to the hospitality industry".
The way forward for the
industry, said Professor Nettle-
ford, is "community tourism" -
especially in terms of "small-
scale habitats" in which visitors
stay with local families or rent
guest-house villas or apart-
ments, he said.

Developers 'face




many obstacles'


* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
BAHAMIAN-BORN developers in the Family
islands are complaining that they face unreasonable
obstacles in becoming tourism entrepreneurs.
Speaking at this week's National Tourism Con-
ference, two such individuals spoke about their
problems with funding, saying that money for
investment does not go to those who were born
here.
Ken Bowe, owner of Chat n' Chill on Stacking
Island, Exuma, said: "Money for investment in the
Bahamas does not go to Bahamians. It goes to for-
eigners and the families of politicians. So you have
to count your pennies and realise that your dream
will not come along. You have to drag it along."
Sammy Thurston, owner of Sammy T's in Ben-
nett's Harbour, Cat Island, said the two were
only able to talk about their accomplishments
today, after putting in years of hard work.
Mr Thurston, however, said he was fortunate
enough to have had help from the Bahamas
Development Bank, admitting that his acquain-
tance with the staff there was helpful in his acqui-
sition of funds. Help from the ban, along with
that of his friends and his own savings, allowed him
to develop his seven-room cottage-style suites.
It took Mr Thurston three years to get his busi-


ness off the ground, but today it is already becom-
ing a hot spot for tourists visiting Cat Island.
A major issue for developers is lack of infra-
structure on the Family Islands.
Apart from providing basic necessities such as
electricity, drinkable water, waste disposal and
communications, getting to the islands by sea or
air and getting around the islands on suitable
roads was seen as just as important.
Brendan Foulkes, moderator for the "Going
Back to the Island" session, said that these issues
have turned many away from the Family Islands.
Mr Bowe has improvised in light of these trou-
bles. He uses a generator for electricity, and he
has brought in his own reverse osmosis plant,
utilising sea water as his source.
Not only do developers face many challenges,
but so do persons seeking to leave the capital
city and work in the Family Islands.
Natalie Roberts, of Four Seasons in Exuma,
said city dwellers moving to the islands will face
a culture shock. At the top of her list of obstacles
is housing.
She says that finally in Exuma, islanders are
responding to the housing needs by constructing
dwellings. However, the rates for rental are "sky
high".
The distance also creates the problem of getting
supplies on time.

'should not

just be

preserved

for tourists'

* By FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter
SAFEGUARDING the
integrity of the Bahamian envi-
ronment primarily for Bahami-
ans should be more important
than preserving it for visitors,
asserted a distinguished
Caribbean author and cultural
icon.
Addressing the National
Tourism Conference, Professor
Rex Nettleford said the theme:
"My Bahamas, to a Common,
Loftier Goal", must be execut-
ed by ensuring that the
Bahamas remains a place for
Bahamians always.
He said tourists must come
to enjoy the country "with
Bahamians, not despite them".
"Tourists have to be made to
understand that they are com-
ing to a country inhabited by
human beings, rather than to a
beach made up of sand," he
said. "And as human beings,
we are no less endangered than
our beaches, our reefs, our flo-
ra, and what fauna we have."
He analysed the phrase: "To
a Common, Loftier Goal". The
word "common" suggested to
him "the all-inclusiveness which
society that the likes of us have
inherited, never really provid-
ed".
"The old hierarchical struc-
tures based on class categoriza-
tions underlined in race and col-
or, are by and large disappear-
ing fast enough if not altogeth-
er. If truth be told, since 1967,
things have changed to bring
Bahamians both on this side of
and over the hill into a unit of
nationhood."
"Loftier goal", he said, should
mean a society free from fear,
hunger, from disease, and from
ignorance the kind of civilized
entity worth inhabiting on the
part of Bahamians themselves
and in turn, worth visiting on
the part of the tourist.

SMajority Rule has been



undermined by politics


T seems odd to suggest
that a political event is
being undermined by politics,
but that is precisely what is
happening to what we com-
monly refer to as "Majority
Rule".
On January 10, 1967, a new
government comprised princi-
pally of black British subjects
replaced a government cdim-
promised exclusively of white
British subjects by way of a
non-violent imperfect democ-
ratic process that no doubt
expressed the will of the vast
majority of people who racial-
ly resembled more the new
government than the old.
This event was a significant
one. Sir Arthur Foulkes was

STRAIGHT UP TALK


Z H IVARG
absolutely right when he said
that January 10, 1967, estab-
lished democracy in The
Bahamas in the truest sense.
After all, the literal inter-
pretation of the Greek mean-
ing of democracy is "people
rule" and January 10, 1967,
established firmly a new polit-
ical reality in The Bahamas
where "the people" by any
reasonable interpretation
ruled their circumstances in
the majority as opposed to
where a privileged minority
did.
For this writer, it is the vic-
tory of democracy that is cen-
tral to the importance of
majority rule as opposed to
the victory of one skin colour
over another.
If democracy does not reign
today, as it has not done in
some isolated circumstances,
the suffering that black
Bahamians experienced at the
hands of those oppressive
white Bahamians could be
experienced at the hands of
their own black Bahamians.
In fact, the many instances
of victimisation and abuse of
power experienced by some
black Bahamians by black
Bahamians since Majority
Rule is proof of this.
Let us not forget that a com-
mon cry during the 1992 gen-
eral elections was relief from
the victimisation and "all for
me" attitude of the governing
party at the time, compro-
mised almost exclusively of
black Bahamians.
If we do not suffer whole-
sale abuse at the hands of
those who govern us, black or
white, it is because democracy
prevents such from occurring.
, Thereis no doubt that the
great champions of the
achievement of Majority Rule
were principally black men
and women, though a number
of white men, including the
founders of the PLP, such as
Cyril Stevenson and Sir Henry
Taylor, were key players in the
struggle.
It is also true that the great
beneficiaries of Majority Rule
were the masses of black peo-
ple, though white Bahamians
have also benefited by it, since
it has firmly established a
democracy that protects their
minority status. This notwith-
standing, it narrows the nobil-
ity of Majority Rule to make it


o LAING
a one-party achievement or to
resign it purely to a matter of
race, though the latter was a
large element of it.
Majority Rule should be a
national holiday and deserved-
ly so because its contribution
to the establishment of a full
democracy in The Bahamas
cannot be overstated.
However, so long as it is
treated as the singular achieve-
ment of one political party and
used by that party as an enti-
tlement to forever be regarded
as the most appropriate party


Majority
Rule should be
a national
holiday and
deservedly so
because its
contribution
to the
establishment
of a full
democracy n
The Bahamas
cannot be
overstated."


to govern the nation, it will
not enjoy the popular consen-
sus that it should.
Additionally, so long as
some politicians try to use
Majority Rule to promote
political advantage by inciting
racial tensions, the purity of
that achievement will be so
marred as to hamper its deep-
er appreciation.
Those who say that we need
to teach the history of Major-
ity Rule more are correct but
not from the jaundiced per-
spective that they tend to
have. We need to teach it with
the dispassion, albeit under-
standable feelings, that it is
taught by persons like Dr Gail
Saunders and Sir Arthur
Foulkes.
If we get cockeyed politics
out of the way of Majority


Rule, it will be the holiday that
it should be and black
Bahamians as well as white
Bahamians should embrace it
as a triumph of a people over
a great political vice, that vice
being a failing democracy.
TOURISM'S SALVATION
IS RESOLUTION

O ur tourism product
today is being under-
mined by the fact that too
many Bahamians, many of
whom work in the industry,
have not resolved the conflict
between what tourists expect
when they come to The
Bahamas and what they are
prepared to give them when
they come.
For example, many visitors
to our shores expect to see
smiling faces greeting them
when they arrive and for many
Bahamians in the field, giving
a smiling face is too much to
ask when they resent what
they regard as servitude to a
people who resemble their for-
mer oppressors and who seek
a pampering they themselves
cannot get at home.
It is not unreasonable for
the Ministry of Tourism to try
to survey Bahamians to obtain
a genuine sense of what they
are prepared to give tourists,
in terms of service, when they
visit The Bahamas.
. If this is done, the ministry
will have a better sense of
what to address or promote.
If, for instance, the survey
reveals that the majority of
practitioners in the field are
not prepared to give tourists
a warm smile, then the min-
istry would know that it must
now engage a campaign to
promote the same, especiallyjif
a warm smile is what tourists
expect and what the ministry
markets.
All disappointment is a mat-
ter of expectation and any dis-
appointed tourist reflects the
failure of a destination to meet
his or her expectation. It
therefore makes sense to
know what the expectations 6f
visitors are, what the destina-
tion is prepared to do in relA-
tion to those expectations arki
come to a resolution that fuily
embraces the reality of tlte
same.
THOUGHT
FOR THE WEEK
Only those who question
their worth and dignity despise
the nobility of service.

Floating library




docks in Freeport


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT- The MV Logos
II officially opened its floating
book fair on Tuesday while
'docked at Freeport Harbour.
' Demaris Thompson, assistant
director at the Ministry of Edu-
cation, praised Captain Tom
Dyer and his crew for bringing a
"wealth of knowledge" to the
shores of Grand Bahama.
"Reading is knowledge and
knowledge is power and we
thank you for sharing your time,
talent and treasures with us here
in Freeport," Mrs Thompson
aid during the opening cere-
mnony onboard the ship.
Over the next six days, Grand
Bahama residents will have
access to more than 4,000 titles
bn' educational, social, and
Christian topics.
The public is also invited to
attend conferences on the ship
and to meet persons of various
BdAck&iuid's :nd nationalities.


The Logo II is manned by a
crew of 200 volunteers from 45
countries. Its mission is to bring
"knowledge, hope and help". It is
part of the worldwide interde-
nominational Christian ministry
called Operation Mobilisation.
"We are very pleased to
anchor in the Bahamas follow-
ing three rough days at sea after
setting sail from Bermuda," said
Captain Dyer.
"I am glad to be in the
Bahamas again. I have been with
the ministry since 1980 and my
first trip to Nassau was in 1982,
and it was a great experience."
The ship is expected to visit
Nassau on March 17.
Mr Dyer said the crew is
looking forward to forming fel-
lowships with local churches,
church leaders and young per-
sons, as well as doing some
community service.
Students from the various
public schools will be visiting
the ship during its stay in Grand
Bahanma. '" '


Mrs Thompson said that the
ministry has intensified its read-
ing programme in schools and
has placed special emphasis
on adult literacy in Grand
Bahama.
"More than 12 years ago the
ministry launched an intensive
reading programme called Let's
Read Bahamas. Today, the pro-
gramme is still in existence and
I have noticed that more per-
sons are reading now," Mrs
Thompson said.
More than 34 million visitors
have visited the book fair since
the ship's ministry began in
1970. Visitors are offered a
selection of titles in a wide
range of categories, including
science, sports, hobbies, cookery
the arts, economics, medicine
and Christian living.
The fair is open to the public
between 10 am and 10pm on
weekdays. A related interna-
tional cultural festival will be
held at St John's Jubilee Cathe-
dral on Satiiday. "

field courses to compliment the current Bachelor of Science degree courses at The College/University will
be a significant focus.

The Executive Director, reporting to the President and Vice President Academic Affairs, has supervisory
responsibility for the Institute, comprising appointed faculty fellows. He/She will provide leadership in
programme development and research initiatives to take full advantage of The College/University location
in a small island state and year round access to the unique sub-tropical ecosystems of the coastal, coral reefs,
mangrove and sea grass communities in The Bahamas. Toward this end, the Executive Director will work-
closely with administrators at the existing facilities at The College/University field stations in San Salvador
(Gerace Research Centre) and Andros (The Bahamas Environmental Research Centre). Such engagements
will include the traditional academic initiatives as well as certificate and general environmental and resource
management outreach courses/programmes. In this regard, the Executive Director, through the resources
of the Institute and in collaboration with the School of Sciences and Technology, will assist with the
development of a flagship multidisciplinary degree programme in Marine Science. Efforts will also entail
attracting researchers and scholars with marine and related interests as well as local, regional and international
students with exceptional academic credentials and future potential, demonstrating a genuine interest in
marine science. The Executive Director must have exceptional skills in grantsmanship and the ability to
develop collaborations to build long-term research and monitoring initiatives that can help document and
catalogue the ecological systems that make up the Bahamian archipelago.

The College/Uriiversity of The Bahamas is the national higher education institution of The Commonwealth
of The Bahamas. The institution grants mostly bachelor degrees and some joint master's degrees in conjunction
with other institutions. It has a student enrolment in excess of 4,000 students located throughout the Bahamian
archipelago. It has extensive links with tertiary institutions in the Caribbean and North America and its
credits are accepted by more than 200 colleges and universities in those regions and in Great Britain. It has
embarked aggressively upon a major expansion of its programme offerings, research activities and physical
facilities and is incorporating e-learning methodologies into its repertoire of strategies for delivering instruction,
all with a view to attaining a charter as a university by 2007.
The successful candidate must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field with a minimum of eight to ten years
experience at an accredited university, a proven research record and have relevant work experience including
appropriate supervisory level exposure.

THE TRIBUNE


LAN
6'


Former Bahamasair



chief 'likely' to



take over at WSC


FROM page one
locked in a bitter feud for months, with the
general manager claiming that Mr Demeritte has
essentially usurped his position at the corporation,
even though Mr Demeritte technically is not an
executive chairman.
However, Mr Demeritte has been credited with
making bold transitional changes at the corpora-
tion, reversing what sources claimed were previ-
ous political promotions.
Also, Mr Demeritte has granted over 100 pro-
motions valued at more than $1 million to other
employees reportedly "overlooked" at previous
promotional intervals.
However, according to well-placed sources, the
corporation's "infighting" has forced the prime
minister and Mr Roberts, the minister responsible
for WSC, to intervene.
Asked which executive at WSC would be ter-
minated, Mr Roberts assured The Tribune that
the government will be making an announce-
ment "very shortly".
"But most certainly one is gone. There is no
doubt about that," he said.
Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, deputy
FNM leader Brent Symonette said the govern-
ment is facing substantial problems with WSC


and Bahamasair.
"The government is faced with considerable
chaos at WSC and also having considerable dif-
ficulties at Bahamasair and I'm not sure if it's
the time now to comment further.
"The opposition will review the facts as they
become known to us and we will make a state-
ment in due course as to what the concerns are in
that regard," he said.
Taking over in Mr Major's post at Bahama-
sair will be Henry Woods, who was previously the
airline's deputy general manager of operations.
Mr Woods will now be acting general manager
of Bahamasair. However, his promotion is not
being looked upon favourably by some in the
industry.
Mr Woods was cited in the Commission of
Inquiry in 1995, with commissioners recom-
mending that "investigations should be instituted
into the conduct of Mr Woods in relation to
alleged kickbacks and improper use of [Bahama-
sair's] resources."
When questioned about the use of Bahama-
sair maintenance personnel on one occasion for
assisting with construction work on a building he
was erecting in Nassau, Mr Woods admitted that
he had done this and that it was an "improper way
of using Bahamasair's personnel".


Harbour Island


project to be


re-examined


FROM page one
SThe North Eleuthera MP
explained that the proposed
leasing of part of a 100-year-
old ramp is causing tremen-
dous concern to residents of
Harbour Island, as it is dis-
placing fishermen and ferry
boat operators.
He said that 40 feet of the
100 feet wide ramp have
already been leased to the
Valentine's Resort and Mari-
na and that a further 30 feet
are now being considered for
leasing to a local business-
woman.
This arrangement, he said,
would leave only a narrow
strip for local fishermen. "This
will really cause a problem,"
he said.
Mr Smith explained that the
ramp is used by fishermen to
clean their fish and scrub their
boats.
"At least 12 fishermen and
18 ferry boat operators use it,"
he said.
The North Eleuthera MP
said that when the lease by
the local businesswoman was
approved in principle by local


government, the proposal
indicated that small stalls
would be erected on the ramp.
However, in a later written
submission, the business-
woman requested the
approval of a 30 by 30 feet
two-storey structure. This pro-
posal was denied by local gov-
ernment.
Mr Smith said he under-
stands that although this pro-
posed structure has now been
scaled down in size to 20 by 20
feet, the local businesswoman
never re-submitted her pro-
posal and was still able to
obtain a building permit.
He further said that,
although the proposed struc-
ture is smaller in size, it will
feature a verandah which will
still impact the fishermen
using the ramp.
Mr Christie said that he
would not like Harbour
Islanders to get the impres-
sion that approval to lease
part of the ramp was given to
the large investor Valentine's
and is being withheld from a
local businesswoman. He said
he will further examine the
situation.

Majority Rule 'should

not create divide

between races'


FROM page one
Bahamians were given access
to higher education after
Majority Rule, but a large num-
ber of white Bahamians were
also "released to higher educa-
tion."
"More white people made
greater progress than black peo-
ple (after Majority Rule)," he
said.
He also pointed out that
many white Bahamians, as well
as foreigners, took part in the
fight for Majority Rule.


Mr Christie said it is impor-
tant not to recoil from the
"black and white issue", but to
understand that racial division is
a part of the country's past
which should be viewed in its
historical context.
The prime minister added
that he always made an effort to
reach out to all Bahamians, and
made it a point to also connect
with the white Bahamian com-
munity.
He said it was always his goal
to know the white community
"by name and industry."

HBISHOP MOURNS GEORGE MACKEY The Archbishop of the Anglican Diocese, the Most Reverend
: rd Fox Hill on Thursday, January 5, for a memorial service for George Mackey at St Paul's Baptist Church. He
an; anything good come out of Nazareth?" He said that it was clear as in the case of Nazareth, that the answer was

* By Bahamas Information
Services

/ / Can any good come
out of Fox Hill?" So
asked the Anglican
Archbishop, Drexel
Gomez at last
Thursday's memorial service,
organised for the late Hon
George Mackey by the Fox
Hill Community.
This rhetorical question
posed by His Grace carried
special significance, in that it
represented the leader of the
country's Anglican Commu-
nion drawing a direct compar-
ison between Jesus' worth to
his birthplace of Nazareth and
Mr Mackey's worth to his Fox
Hill hometown.
Indeed, the Archbishop went
on to say, that as Nazareth had
been widely viewed as a place
of disdain before Jesus' arrival
on the scene, similarly had Fox
Hill been regarded before
George Mackey's time in pub-
lic life.
"As we come to recognize
and acknowledge his contribu-
tions, let us give thanks to
almighty God who through his
grace enabled George to
accomplish what he did, who
gave him that vision and who
gave the loving motivation to
pursue the vision to the very
end," he concluded.
Recalling Mr Mackey's birth
on St Anne's Hill in the area
overlooking the Fox Hill
Creek, fellow Fox Hillian and
Rehoboth Baptist Church Pas-
tor, Rev Dr Phillip Rahming,
credited the former member of
parliament with restoring "dig-
nity" to the historic communi-
ty, which was one of the'
island's first to be settled by
former African slaves.
"It was here that the people
of the [Fox Hill] Valley gave
him the push in the vote to go
to parliament," said Dr Rah-
ming of Mr Mackey. "He
restored our dignity. He came
at a time when they said all Fox
Hill people did was eat dilly
and he said they told him that
when you passed the Old Mon-
tagu Hotel (traditional Fox Hill
boundary) you went behind
God's back."
In addition to being the
prime mover in changing the
way people perceived Fox Hill,
Dr Rahming noted that all the
residents, despite political per-
suasion, race or age, benefited
from initiatives Mr Mackey
spearheaded and contributed
to.
Speaking on behalf of
Roman Catholics, Monsignor
Preston Moss told the large
audience who came to St Paul's
Baptist Church, that Mr Mack-
ey's life had been one rooted in
love. "He delivered the gifts
given to him to show God's
love for us in that familiar
phrase with which he greeted
all that he encountered, 'My


Beloved,' and behind his greet-
ing I believe was a profound
experience of God as love.
"A love that permeated and
rooted him. That greeting I
believe both revealed his root-
edness in God's love and his
love and respect for all, as Saint '
John reminds us 'everyone who
loves is begotten by God and
knows God."
Deputy Prime Minister and
Minister of National Security
Cynthia Pratt revealed how she
and Mr Mackey himself a for-
mer Cabinet Minister had '
prayed together before he was
discharged from hospital for
the last time. She added that
the obvious pain wrought on
his body by the cancer that ulti-
mately claimed his life was not
even enough to stop him from
smiling and thanking God '
while she visited.
Another theme emerging
from Mrs Pratt's tribute was
that of Mr Mackey's generosi-
ty. She revealed that he gave '
her a $200 loan back in 1972,
for which she had not repaid .
before his death on January 2,
2002. "I never did pay him
back that $200 and that was in
1972 so Mrs Mackey I am
going to give you that tonight," '

"As we come to recognize
and acknowledge his
contributions, let us give ..,
thanks to almighty God
who through his grace '
enabled George to .
accomplish what he did...
Archbishop Drexel
Gomez

she said to his widow Betty.
While quite a few more men'.
of the cloth, secular leaders and
friends of Mr Mackey joined
Mrs Pratt and the aforemen-
tioned clergymen in honouring
Mr Mackey, who was 67 at the;
time of his death, the respect
he showed for all men and his
willingness to give of his time
and personal possessions were
themes that came up again and
again.
Perhaps no one knew more
of Mr Mackey's giving than the-
man he hand picked to succeed
as member of parliament for
Fox Hill, Fred Mitchell.:
"George Mackey brought me
to Fox Hill" he revealed. "One
day in 1996, unsolicited, he
walked into my law office and
asked me if I would be inter-,
ested in the Fox Hill nomina-
tion.
"When I got the nomination,
he went one better and walked
from door to door to door
introducing his constituents to
me. He told them I was not
from Fox Hill, but I was a
Bahamian nationalist and a
man who believed in helping
the downtrodden and he was
satisfied that I would follow in
his footsteps."


Bishop Ellis to host 'Praise the Lord'


FROM page 1C

Ellis.
The senior pastor noted fur-
ther that since the commence-
ment of Mount Tabor's own
international telecasts, that
more pastors, preachers, and
other believers have come to
the Bahamas just to worship
with them: "We are blessed to
report that this international
interest has also extended
beyond individuals, to a num-
ber of television networks,
including TBN."

Approach

According to Bishop Ellis,
Paul and Jan, as they are affec-
tionately known, have come up
with a fresh approach to the
'Praise the Lord' programme
which is their flagship produc-
tion. 'Praise the Lord'. is usual-
ly televised live from TBN pro-
duction facilities throughout
the tInited States, however in
2(H00 T'IN added a new dimen-
sion to its format and
approached a number of min-
istries to host the programme
live from their sanctuaries.
Mount Tabor will be the first
church outside of the United
States to be blessed with this
opportunity, said Bishop Ellis.
He added that the assembly
was pleased to take'advantage
of the privilege to present not
only a wonderful worship expe-
rience for Christ, but to pre-
sent the "unique Bahamian
brand of Christianity as well".
The programme, which is


,up~. di


4'
. ; .

tl


going to be 'live to tape', will be
recorded on Monday, January
16, at 7pm in the sanctuary of
Mount Tabor, and will feature
many of the popular hallmarks
of the "Praise the Lord" pro-
gramme, such as interviews and
special musical guests; howev-
er, this special mix will be inte-
grated into the church's wor-
ship experience.
In addition to a time of
praise and worship and special
musical selections from Mount
Tabor's combined choir and
dance ministry, the programme
is expected to feature special
music by renowned gospel
artist Vickie Winans of Detroit,
Michigan and inspiring inter-
views with Bishop Eddie Long
of Atlanta, Georgia, and
Deputy Prime Minister Cyn-
thia Pratt.
The interviews will be con-
ducted by Bishop Ellis, who
has been asked by TBN to host
the programme and preach the
sermon. Prime Minister Perry
Christie has also agreed to he I
part of this historic event by
greeting the international (audi-
ence.

Exciting

"It's going to be an exciting,
powerful night that will edify
the body of Christ and glorify
God, while at the same time
presenting the Bahamas to the
world once again as an incred-
ible, little Christian nation.
With an understanding that
"our steps are ordered by the
Lord.", and that "every good
and perfect gift comes from


God". we are grateful to God
for his favour upon the min-
istry and for this wonderful
opportunity to involve the
wider community to be a part
of this event.

Solicit

"We solicit the prayers and
support of the saints, that God
would use this service to save,
deliver, encoinrage and bless all
that tune in: and that IHe alone
will be glorified through this
telecast," said Bishop Ellis.
To God be the olory!

Greek Orthodox Church





celebrates Epiphany


* BISHOP NEIL ELLIS


* By PETURA BURROWS
Tribune Feature Writer
o the lay person, an epiphany, as defined
by the dictionary, is simply a sudden,
intuitive realisation brought about
through an ordinary circumstance. It's
signifies the point in a believers life
where a change is madesthat will make their life better.
But to the Orthodox Christian, the word epiphany
takes on a new, more religious meaning at the begin-
ning of every year.
Last week, the Greek Orthodox church in the
Bahamas joined with millions of other Orthodox
Christians around the world in a series of activities that
mark one of the highlights of the church year. Much
like how the annual Synod represents the beginning of
a new year for the Anglican Church, or how the Lord's
Supper is celebrated every month throughout the
Christian body, the Orthodox faith has an annual
Epiphany celebration.
Epiphany, which means to show, is a season of light
- reflecting the belief that when Jesus Christ came to
earth in human form, a son to Mary and Joseph, he
was the light of the world. During Epiphany, God is
made "manifest", or made obvious through the flesh
and blood presence of his son, Jesus, on earth.
During the Season of Epiphany, Orthodox Chris-
tians follow the wise men as they follow the star to
Bethlehem to find the baby Jesus. They also follow the
disciples as they learn to follow Jesus. The Epiphany
is also a time of reflection as Church members seek to
answer the question, What does it mean to follow
Jesus? What does it mean to go totally in His way?
"It's one of the highlights of bur church calendar
because it follows Christmas which is the celebration
of the arrival of God on earth in the form of Jesus
Christ. And then at the Epiphany our church.cele-
brates the fact that this is where the Trinity was
defined, Father, Son and Holy Spirit", Maria Chisnall,
assistant secretary of the Greek Orthodox parish coun-
cil in Nassau, told Tribune Religion.
"That's why in these celebrations we say that the
Trinity was manifested as Father, Son and Holy Spir-
it. At Jesus' baptism, you had the voice of God the
Father, the presence of the Son and the presence of the
Holy Spirit in the form of a dove. It's just the showing
of God," she said.
Mrs Chisnall attends the only Orthodox church in
the country. It's officially called The Annunciation
Greek Orthodox Church, though people simply refer
to it as the Greek Orthodox church. It's the same
church that hosts the annual Greek festival that brings

art and culture to the church grounds.
The Epiphany is celebrated in several parts. The
first celebration during Epiphany is the Day of
Epiphany itself which western Christians celebrate
on January 6. The local Orthodox church, like others
around the world, celebrate with a divine liturgy, sim-
ply the "church's main service".
On the Day of Epiphany, also called the festival of
light, Orthodox Christians celebrate the visit of the
three wise men to the baby Jesus in Bethlehem. They
may have come from the west, perhaps Iran, follow-
ing a star in the sky which led them to Bethlehem.
During the service, which fell on a Friday this year,
the priest performs what is called the blessings of the


waters: "That water that is blessed is then sent out into
the community to people's homes, to the sick, to peo-
ple's shops, wherever people want it. They drink it as
a sign of their faith in God that He would be present
in their daily lives," Mrs Chisnall noted.
In keeping with Orthodox tradition, the church
holds a second day of celebrations every year. It is
always held on the first Sunday alter January 6, and
never before. So on January 8, the Greek Orthodox
church paused to remember the baptism of Jesus by
John the Baptist in the Jordan River.
It was during the baptism that the Holy Spirit
descended from heaven in the form of a dove, the
heavens opened, and a voice spoke, saying, "This is my
beloved son, in whom I am well pleased." The gospel
records, and it is widely accepted throughout the
Christian body, that Jesus was shown to the crowds at
the Jordan to be the Son of God.
During the Sunday celebrations, church members
march down to Nassau Harbour, the priest reads the
scriptures concerning the baptism of Christ, and the
events of what the Bible records are then re-enacted.
As is done every year, a little girl releases a dove or
pigeon into the air to symbolise the presence of the
Holy Spirit. And at that moment, the priest throws a
gold cross into the sea. Young boys then vie to see who
will be the first to retrieve the cross from the water and
bring it back to the priest.
"It's the same thing we have done for thousands of
years," said Mrs Chisnall. "Nowadays the boys are
already in the water, but in the old days, they used to
jump in after the cross. But people were scared of
them breaking their necks if it was shallow water, so
they changed things."
At 53, Mrs Chisnall refers to herself as a "cradle
Orthodox". She was born into the church and has
attended many Epiphany celebrations at the water's
edge.
Once one of the boys retrieves the cross, he brings
it to the priest. And in a religious ritual similar to
men kneeling and being knighted as in medieval times,
the priest pronounces a special blessing on the boy and
gives him a wooden cross as a keepsake.
Though it's not really a competition, being the
young man who gets the cross is a much sought after
position since it symbolises that he has been singled out
for something special.
Mrs Chisnall explained: "It is a bit of a competition
if you really look at it. The symbolism is that that
child has been set up for a special blessing. The priest

'A feast of light and hope'


* By CLEMENT JOHNSON
AS WE, in this country, mature after
our experiences of 2005, we should be in a
better position to judge between the things
that really matter and those that do not.
Years ago an old sage told me that in life
one has to distinguish between what is
important and what is necessary. Many
things, he said, are important, but are not
necessary. Today I still try to shovel my
way through, discerning the difference. I
try always to discern what feeds hope and
what is the fruit of fear and insecurity.
The year 2005 will go down in the histo-
ry of the Bahamas as one of the most trag-
ic in decades. The memories of family
members of the Bimini residents who lost
their lives on December 19 will be etched
into the annals of time forever, into the
national fabric as part of Bahamian narra-
tion. The number of senseless murders will
also be remembered, the lives of those
families will never be the same. We live in
a world, it seems, filled with hopelessness
and fear, but as we celebrate the feast of
Epiphany it is one filled with light and
hope.
We live in a world of instant, where the
international media transmits world events


as they are happening, because of this peo-
ple are better informed and more equipped
to read the signs around them. That is why
religious, political and civic leaders have a
responsibility to be truthful, because the
well informed person will not be taken in
easily and the transparency of the actions
will be revealed.
Gospel
In the gospel which was read in Christian
churches on Sunday January 8 Feast of
the Epiphany Herod pretends to have a
desire to see Christ, the light, but he does
not really. The feast is a significant one
on the Christian calendar, a celebration
of the Light that is Christ. In the Magi,
the three strangers from the east, the
Church sees her foreshadowing. It marks
the revealing of God's plan to make us all,
"members of the same body" (Ephesians
3;6). The Magi point the way for the church
in adoration and spreading the good news.
Epiphany is, therefore, a good time for
the Church to take stock of herself; to look
again at how she is performing her prima-
ry role of proclaiming the gospel message.
The Church, in order to be faithful to the
gospel, must set it self aside from the values


of the world. It must continue to preach the
gospel in season and out of season.
It means Christians cannot be hypocrites;
they must have meaningful relationship
with Jesus the Lord, in Spirit. Outward
observance would not sustain the rela-
tionship God wants to have with his people
or the peace they seek.
As we struggle through the daily rou-
tines of life and face our fears, we ought to
get caught up in the spirit of Epiphany,
because it a feast of hope, We must live in
the hope that Jesus gave his followers then,
that the same Jesus is still our hope for
today, and that "Hope is an irrepressible
element of Christian faith".
We must tell our leaders that false hope
is a sin against the Holy Spirit, that the
fear and insecurity that was demonstrated
in the past years will no longer work in
2006. Our leaders cannot give in to Herod-
like fear and insecurity. The gospel of
Epiphany shows that that kind of attitude
can have particularly disastrous results.
The year 2006 calls for calm resolve.
The Church, called to be light, has much
to say and much to do. In the midst of fear
and confusion that we face, It must always
point to another way, and the fact that
darkness cannot overpower the Light.

SA BAHAMIAN SPIRITUAL GIANT- In celebration of Senior Pastor Emeritus Bish-
op Duke Smith of Evangelic Assembly, a dreamer and a spiritual general with over 55
years in the ministry, Pastor Patrick Smith presents the elder, the mighty man of God,
with a token of appreciation.


"Great men build monuments for other
great men to see; Ordinary men blaze trails
so that other ordinary men may follow."
-Anonymous
he pastor, officers and mem-
bers of Evangelistic Assem-
bly, located on Blue Hill Road
and Fleming Street, will cele-
brate the life and witness of
Bishop Duke Samuel Smith, justice of the
peace, organiser and senior pastor emeritus,
theologian, teacher, preacher, historian,
musician and humanitarian, during the 38th
anniversary of the church, Sunday, Janu-
ary 15 at 10am.
The sacred calling of men by God is a
major theme in the Bible. He is a living
God who addresses His word to mankind.
He does not only speak to all in generalities,
but often calls men by name into His
church.
As a deacon in Transfiguration Baptist
Church in the early fifties, he served along
with then Deacon Garnet King and the late
Deacon John E Cleare. Some years later,
Deacon Duke moved him membership to
the historic Bethel Baptist Church under
the pastorate of the late Dr H W Brown. In
1960, he, along with the late B R Levarity,
and Matthias E Munroe were all ordained
to the gospel ministry where they all con-
tinued to serve under the tutelage of Dr
Brown.
To everything there is a season, and a
time to every purpose under the heav-
en...Reverend Smith's time had come, the
Lord spoke audibly, Duke Smith heard his
voice and heeded the call. Consequently, on
January 14, 1968 a new work was started.
Pastor Duke, along with his wife, Cleola,
pitched tent on Fleming Street east, where
the Word of God was preached and taught.
During this time a new wooded structure
was being erected. One year later, February
8, 1969, services were held in this new build-
ing located on Hospital Lane and John
Street west. It was here that the ministry
took off and experienced rapid growth.
Pastor Duke Smith learned the trade of
tailoring and soon became one of the
nation's top tailors. He, along wit colleagues
Hartley Thompson, the late Cecil Pratt,
Leroy Jones, George Curtis and Livingston
Cooper became very popular with their
trade on Farm Road near the Southern
Recreation grounds.
There seemed to have been something
special and unique about the number 14.
November 14, 1918, Pastor Smith was born
to 'Teacher' George Trevor Smith and Dru-
cilla Smith, both deceased in Simms, Long
Island. October, 14, 1942, he was joined in
holy matrimony'to the young, beautiful Cle-
ola Bethel who has truly exhibited the
essence of what a "help-meet" is all about.

ly uphold his integrity.
Bishop Duke Smith has always been a
man deep, spiritual conviction. A man of
Godly principles and high moral standards.
A man who has for the past 70 years pro-
moted and upheld righteous conduct and a
holy lifestyle. He refused to be distracted by
the religious masses; or influenced by
denominational colleagues. He never fol-
lowed or even allowed what might have
been the "status quo" to dictate methodol-
ogy in ministry. Bishop Duke Smith always
did it God's way. His yard stick, his blue
print, his compass has always been the undi-
luted, unadulterated, inherent, indisputable
Word of God.
In December 1999, the Reverend Patrick
Smith along with Tabernacle Full Gospel
Baptist Church family became a part of this
Assembly and in February 2000 the two
congregations merged into one fellowship,
a union that was predestined by God,
despite the fact that many obstacles and
challenges were faced, and many hurdles
crossed.
After much prayer, after pioneering the
work for 33 years, our bishop, a teacher
and spiritual father appointed his nephew,
Reverend Patrick Vernon Smith as the sec-
ond pastor Evangelic Assembly while he,
Bishop Smith continues to serve faithfully as
senior pastor emeritus.
Thirty-eight years later, we are proud
and honoured to recognize and celebrate
the dream and the dreamer, a spiritual gen-
eral in his own right, Bishop Duke Samuel
Smith.

prays for them to have a
healthy happy year of success
and accomplishment.
"I think that it's something
nice to promote because, you
know, we have so much bad
news. It's good to see that
young men even care, or are
even excited to be in church
these days to find the cross,"
Mrs Chisnall said, adding that
in other parts of the world, like
Florida or Russia, the retriev-
ing of the cross is one of the
most important aspects of the
church year where thousands
of people try to get the cross.
The Orthodox church con-
gregation in the Bahamas is
small, so the numbers of those
participating is much smaller


than in other congregations
around the world.
This year, eight boys partici-
pated. For now, girls are not
permitted to swim for the cross
since they are a "very conserv-
ative" church, Mrs Chisnall
said.
Recognises
The celebration of Epiphany,
that begins with a celebration
of Christ's entrance into the
world and also recognizes the
appearance of the Trinity at
Christ's baptism, hinges on the
doctrine that God fills the lives
of Christians with his holy light
during Epiphany so that His
light can shine through them
into the world even after the
celebrations have been com-
pleted.

Finally, on January 14, 1968, led by the

Undoubtedly, Pastor Smith, through
these many years preached the Word of
God without fear or intimidation. He con-

As growth was eminent, the wooden
building on Hospital Lane became too

Smith through a close relative who was led
by God to ask Pastor Smith to build a

THE TRIBUNE


H RELIGION


* By FATHER HENRY CHARLES
Couple of years ago I came
across, quite by accident,
Peter Balakian's Black
Dog of Fate, an elegant
and moving autobio-
graphical memoir of an immigrant Armen-
ian family in New Jersey in the 50s and
60s. It was my introduction to the Armen-
ian genocide of 1915-18. In the book, Bal-
akian explored secrets of his family's past
and, in particular, his awakening to the
Turkish government's silence regarding
what most people view as the first genocide
of the 20th century.
Milan Kundera, the great Czech writer,
once said that humankind's struggle against
power is "the struggle of memory against
forgetting." Balakian hardly forgets. He
wrote again about the genocide in The
Burning Tigris in 2003.
Why is any of this important or rele-
vant?
Last month, in Turkey, the writer Orhan
Pamuk went on trial, accused of commit-
ting a crime by mentioning in an interview
with a Swiss newspaper that "30,000 Kurds
and a million Armenians" were killed in
Turkey after World War I. Pamuk faces up
to four years' imprisonment for "insulting
Turkish identity," by speaking out about
the genocide.
To quote him: "Thirty thousand Kurds
and a million Armenians were killed in
Turkey. Almost no one dares speak but
me and the nationalists hate me for that."
This was the evidence of his "crime."
Historians are widely agreed that the
killings constituted genocide, but the sub-
ject remains taboo in Turkey. Turks killed
Armenians, the nationalists say, and Arme-
nians killed Turks, in the world war and in
inter-ethnic violence, but not in a geno-
cide. ,:
Britain has never officially acknowl-
edgedithe genocide; neither has the US.
European states, however, and France, in
particular, have insisted that Turkey make
the acknowledgment, as a precondition
for entry into the European Union.
In response to general EU criticism,
Turkey revised its penal code. The new
code, however, still criminalises public
comments that "denigrate Turkishness"
or criticise the state, the army, or the
founder of the republic, Ataturk.
The government was not alone in attack-
Sing Pamuk. Nationalist groups and the
press joined in the assault, amidst a wave of
nationalistic sentiment.
In the West, reaction was uneven. The
NY Times had a solitary critical piece by


. V

FR HENRY CHARLES















Pankaj Mishra, an Indian writer and lit-
erary critic. London's Sunday Times, on
the other hand, only noted that "Pamuk's"
case has been an embarrassment for the
Turkish government." The Independent
felt that Turkey was giving excuses to her
enemies. There was no wave of protest
regarding the obvious, that Turkey had
denied Pamuk his right to free speech.
This right ordinarily never lacks for
advocates and champions in the West. One
thinks of Salman Rushdie.
In 1989, the Ayatollah Khomeini sen-
tenced Rushdie to death, for blasphemy
against the Proheet Muhammad in his nov-
el, The Satanic Verses. The "fatwa" creat-
ed a huge consensus in the West among
editors, columnists, fellow novelists, and
poets-all defending Rushdie's right to
freedom of expression. The Ayatollah
stood for what fundamental rights had
freed human beings from-obscurantism,
dogma, and religious mind control.
Interestingly, as Mishra noted, opposi-
tion to Pamuk comes, not from religious


extremists, but from the political right
wing, which in Turkey means the deter-
mined secularists.
Turkey is often upheld in the West as an
example of a Muslim society that forswears
fundamentalism and wishes to embrace all
the modern values. It sees its future as
very much at home with Europe, not the
Middle East.
This is perhaps why Pamuk has not
caused as intense a reaction as Rushdie. It's
not only that Pamuk is a lesser known
writer, but that his situation does not fit the
prevailing orthodox polarities: Funda-
mentalism vs liberalism, democracy vs
extremism. You don't expect to find a flat
denial of a basic constitutional right in a
society that claims to endorse liberal val-
ues.
What it means is that Turkey's nation-
alist agenda, in one significant respect at
least, is more important than its liberal
creed. All the emblems of modernity-
secularism, democracy and a free market
economy-are no guarantee of free
speech.
It's a bad mix when uncritical national-
ism and patriotism become linked. The
brave become silent. We know now, for
instance, that it was in part the fear of
being perceived as unpatriotic that kept
the free press in the US from rigorously
examining official justification for the war
in Iraq.
These issues are not that foreign to us.
It's not so very long ago that our own late
distinguished Prime Minister and nation-
alist famously said: "when I talk, no damn
dog bark." Some of those in his centre of
influence would later remark how fright-
ened "big men" were to be on his wrong
side. But it's more than a matter of an iso-
lated, personal trait.
The modern political party will kneel
before a liberal constitution and still dis-
allow criticism of its policies by individual
members. The value is not the individual
but the monolith. Free speech is really like
one of those framed testimonials one sees
on office walls: This is our mission state-
ment.
Democracy and fundamentalism-the
polarity can be abstract and simplistic. It
leads us erroneously to believe it's only
those who live in rigid societies who are
denied fundamental rights. They dislike
our values, President Bush said famously
after 9/11. But it's not too hard sometimes
to understand why. One gets the feeling at
times that Westerners think it's only
extremists who see nothing wrong in with-
holding fundamental rights from people
who have full title to them.

* By REV ANGELA
PALACIOUS
IF you are going to share
your story with others, it is
helpful to prayerfully reflect
on the pattern that may
begin to occur as the years
go by. For example, you
may find like Elijah that
after great victories come
times of extreme testing.
This helps you to prepare
mentally and spiritually for
probable attack by Satan.
What will you do to prepare
yourself? How have you
defended yourself in the
past?
Surrendering to God's
will usually does not come
easy, and every show of sup-
port or act of kindness is a
gift. When I was ordained.
for example, prayerful
encouragement came from
all quarters within the
denomination, the ecu-
menical family and the
wider community. God's
grace was proving to be
more than sufficient: it was
practically causing my cup
to overflow.
Overflowed
In what ways has your cup
overflowed in the past few
years and which prayers
seem yet to be unanswered
by God?
At that time, my thoughts
began to drift back to all the
changing scenes of my life,
the many still moments and
turning points when God's
love for me would surface
with extraordinary power,
or when a deep darkness
would descend and keep me

in a "cloud of unknowing."
What are some of the
changing scenes that you
can recall? What are some
of your best memories and
which experiences seemed
almost unbearable at the
time? How has God used
them to your advantage and
to God's advantage? Where
do you still need to find res-
olution or healing?
There were many lessons
along the way that seemed
to make no real sense until I
was further along and could
see the pattern appearing.
Even foolish mistakes were
woven into the story so that
I could be more compas-
sionate, considerate, or con-
frontational. My life's ran-
dom events were shaping
me into the person I needed
to be in order to fulfill my
part in the divine plan. It
could all be redeemed and
count for something if I

TOPIC: "The Spirit of Procrastination"
By: Pastor Kenneth H.B. Adderley
Read: Read Proverbs 27:1
My brothers and sisters we are in a New Season. It requires a change of attitude,
commitment and focus. The most vexing problem the Body of Christ must overcome
is procrastination. "We plan to do it but keep putting it off, for the next day, next time
or make up for it later. We never seem to catch up."
WHAT IS PROCRANSTATION?
A failure to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. It is a person who
says "I will do it someday, or I will do it tomorrow". My brothers and sisters, we don't
have a tomorrow only today. Every
moment is important, urgent, precious, and valuable to God.
HOW TO DEFEAT THE SPIRIT OF PROCRASTINATION"
1. What Causes Procrastination?
* Indecision: Never making up your mind, can't make a decision. Jas.1:8
* Perfection: Waiting for the right time, condition, situation before you move.
There will never be a perfect time or condition. Eccl. 11:3-6
* Fear: We don't act or move because of the fear of failure, bad choices.
Fear is always around us. We must overcome the fears in our lives.
* Wounded Pride: Don't have the courage or strength to do it, so we control
the situation, so we don't have to do it. Prov. 13:4, Eccl. 11:8
2. The Cost of Procrastination:
* Missed Opportunities: Waiting Time. Ephesians 5:16
* Causing Problems: A Lazy man reaps a life of sorrows and problems.
* Hurts People: Proverbs 18:9
3. The Cure of Procrastination: We all need to ask ourselves, what area of our
life, we are most guilty of Procrastination. Is it salvation, commitment, giving
and Ministry.
* Make a Resolution: I will stop making Excuses. They are words of an
uncommitted person. (3) Types of People:
1. Accusers: Always blaming others. Proverbs 22:13
2. Excusers: Victims
3. Choosers: People who make choices base on design and purpose.
Believe That God Will Help You: Mark 9:33; Don't let your feelings control
your moods. Hebrews 11:6.
Set Deadlines: Right now is the Time. Proverbs 13:6; Jas. 4:16

REPEAT THIS PRAYER
"Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I confess right now, and realize that I am a
sinner. I repent of all my sins. I change my heart, my mind, my direction and I turn
toward Jesus Christ. I confess with my mouth that God raised Jesus Christ from the
dead, and I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is alive and operates in my life.
I thank you Lord that I am saved.
AMEN"

/ Can any good come
out of Fox Hill?" So
asked the Anglican
Archbishop, Drexel
Gomez at last
Thursday's memorial service,
organised for the late Hon
George Mackey by the Fox
Hill Community.
This rhetorical question
.posed by His Grace carried
special significance, in that it
represented the leader of the
country's Anglican Commu-
nion drawing a direct compar-
ison between Jesus' worth to
his birthplace of Nazareth and
Mr Mackey's worth to his Fox
Hill hometown.
Indeed, the Archbishop went
on to say, that as Nazareth had
been widely viewed as a place
of disdain before Jesus' arrival
on the scene, similarly had Fox
Hill been regarded before
George Mackey's time in pub-
lic life.
"As we come to recognize
and acknowledge his contribu-
tions, let us give thanks to
almighty God who through his
grace enabled George to
accomplish what he did, who
gave him that vision and who
gave the loving motivation to
pursue the vision to the very
end," he concluded.
Recalling Mr Mackey's birth
on St Anne's Hill in the area
overlooking the Fox Hill
Creek, fellow Fox Hillian and
Rehoboth Baptist Church Pas-
tor, Rev Dr Phillip Rahming,
credited the former member of
parliament with restoring "dig-
nity" to the historic communi-
ty, which was one of the'
island's first to be settled by
former African slaves.
"It was here that the people
of the [Fox Hill] Valley gave
him the push in the vote to go
to parliament," said Dr Rah-
ming of Mr Mackey. "He
restored our dignity. He came
at a time when they said all Fox
Hill people did was eat dilly
and he said they told him that
when you passed the Old Mon-
tagu Hotel (traditional Fox Hill
boundary) you went behind
God's back."
In addition to being the
prime mover in changing the
way people perceived Fox Hill,
Dr Rahming noted that all the
residents, despite political per-
suasion, race or age, benefited
from initiatives Mr Mackey
spearheaded and contributed
to.
Speaking on behalf of
Roman Catholics, Monsignor
Preston Moss told the large
audience who came to St Paul's
Baptist Church, that Mr Mack-
ey's life had been one rooted in
love. "He delivered the gifts
given to him to show God's
love for us in that familiar
phrase with which he greeted
all that he encountered, 'My


Bishop Ellis to host 'Praise the Lord'

Ellis.
The senior pastor noted fur-
ther that since the commence-
ment of Mount Tabor's own
international telecasts, that
more pastors, preachers, and
other believers have come to
the Bahamas just to worship
with them: "We are blessed to
report that this international
interest has also extended
beyond individuals, to a num-
ber of television networks,
including TBN."

Approach

According to Bishop Ellis,
Paul and Jan, as they are affec-
tionately known, have come up
with a fresh approach to the
'Praise the Lord' programme
which is their flagship produc-
tion. 'Praise the Lord' is usual-
ly televised live from TBN pro-
duction facilities throughout
the United States, however in
2006 TBN added a new dimen-
sion to its format and
approached a number of min-
istries to host the programme
live from their sanctuaries.
Mount Tabor will be the first
church outside of the United
States to be blessed with this
opportunity, said Bishop Ellis.
He added that the assembly
was pleased to take'advantage
of the privilege to present not
only a wonderful worship expe-
rience for Christ, but to pre-
sent the "unique Bahamian
brand of Christianity as well".
The programme, which is
,tTM


going to be 'live to tape', will be
recorded on Monday, January
16, at 7pm in the sanctuary of
Mount Tabor, and will feature
many of the popular hallmarks
of the "Praise the Lord" pro-
gramme, such as interviews and
special musical guests; howev-
er, this special mix will be inte-
grated into the church's wor-
ship experience.
In addition to a time of
praise and worship and special
musical selections from Mount
Tabor's combined choir and
dance ministry, the programme
is expected to feature special
music by renowned gospel
artist Vickie Winans of Detroit,
Michigan and inspiring inter-
views with Bishop Eddie Long
of Atlanta, Georgia, and
Deputy Prime Minister Cyn-
thia Pratt.
The interviews will be con-
ducted by Bishop Ellis, who
has been asked by TBN to host
the programme and preach the
sermon. Prime Minister Perry
Christie has also agreed to be a
part of this historic event by
greeting the international audi-
ence.

Exciting

"It's going to be an exciting,
powerful night that will edify
the body of Christ and glorify
God, while at the same time
presenting the Bahamas to the
world once again as an incred-
ible, little Christian nation.
With an understanding that
"our steps are ordered by the
Lord.", and that "every good
and perfect gift comes from


God", we are grateful to God
for his favour upon the min-
istry and for this wonderful
opportunity to involve the
wider community to be a part
of this event.

Solicit

"We solicit the prayers and
support of the saints, that God
would use this service to save,
deliver, encourage and bless all
that tune in; and that He alone
will be glorified through this
telecast," said Bishop Ellis.
To God be the Glory!

The Trinity Broadcasting
Network, known around the:
world as TBN is the world's
largest religious network and
America's most watched faith-
based channel. From humble
beginnings in 1973 TBN has'
grown into the world's largest
Christian television network.
Across America and around the
world TBN is carried by tele-
vision stations and cable sys-
tems to millions of homes. TBN
is featured on over 5,000 tele-
vision stations, 33 satellites, the
Internet and thousands of cable
systems around the world. TBN
is also currently carried on 33
international satellites, in many
European countries, in the Mid-
dle East, Central Africa, Rus-
sia, Spain, Australia, New
Zealand, Southeast Asia and in
many Latin American coun-
tries. Via their state-of-the-art
international production center
in Irving Texas, programmes
are translated into numerous
foreign languages.

Beloved,' and behind his greet-
ing I believe was a profound
experience of God as love.
"A love that permeated and
rooted him. That greeting I
believe both revealed his root-
edness in God's love and his
love and respect for all, as Saint
John reminds us 'everyone who
loves is begotten by God and
knows God."
Deputy Prime Minister and
Minister of National Security
Cynthia Pratt revealed how she
and Mr Mackey himself a for-
mer Cabinet Minister had'
prayed together before he was
discharged from hospital for
the last time. She added that
the obvious pain wrought on
his body by the cancer that ulti-
mately claimed his life was not
even enough to stop him from
smiling and thanking God
while she visited.
Another theme emerging
from Mrs Pratt's tribute was
that of Mr Mackey's generosi-
ty. She revealed that he gave
her a $200 loan back in 1972,
for which she had not repaid -
before his death on January 2, '
2002. "I never did pay him :
back that $200 and that was in -
1972 so Mrs Mackey I am
going to give you that tonight,"

"As we come to recognize
and acknowledge his
contributions, let us give ,,
thanks to almighty God
who through his grace
enabled George to -,
accomplish what he did...
Archbishop Drexel
Gomez

she said to his widow Betty.
While quite a few more men.
of the cloth, secular leaders and
friends of Mr Mackey joined
Mrs Pratt and the aforemen-
tioned clergymen in honouring
Mr Mackey, who was 67 at the..
time of his death, the respect;
he showed for all men and his "
willingness to give of his time,
and personal possessions were
themes that came up again and
again.
Perhaps no one knew more
of Mr Mackey's giving thanrthe4
man he hand picked to succeed
as member of parliament for'
Fox Hill, Fred Mitchell.
"George Mackey brought me'
to Fox Hill" he revealed. "One
day in 1996, unsolicited, he
walked into my law office and
asked me if I would be inter-
ested in the Fox Hill nomina-
tion.
"When I got the nomination,
he went one better and walked
from door to door to door
introducing his constituents to
me. He told them I was not
from Fox Hill, but I was a
Bahamian nationalist and a
man who believed in helping
the downtrodden and he was
satisfied that I would follow in
his footsteps."

Facing the future with hope


* By BISHOP FRANKLIN M
FERGUSON
e are now
approxi-
mately two
weeks into
the New
Year 2006 and already there
have been robberies, shootings,
car thefts, serious car accidents,
major sicknesses and death, to
name a few undesired experi-
ences.
To the natural man this is
enough to become fearful,
hopeless, angry and even
revengeful. The weak could
become paranoid, and the pes-
simist could become doubtful.
However, to the born again
believer in Jesus Christ, we
should face these circumstances
and the future with much hope
and anticipation. We are obvi-
ously living in the evil days and
the prophecies as spoken by
the prophets, apostles and
Jesus Christ are coming to pass
right before our eyes.
The Apostle Paul told the
young man Timothy that in the
last days perilous times would
come and he listed some of the
behaviours that will be exhib-
ited. People will become self-
ish, covetous, boasters, blas-

phemous, disobedient to par-
ents, unthankful, unholy, with-
out natural affection, truce
breakers, false accusers, fierce
and despisers of those that are
good. They will be lovers of
pleasure more than lovers of
God and have a form of godli-
ness, but deny the power of
God.
Look around you, on your
job, among your colleagues,
examine your neighbourhood,
and look more closely at your
own family your brothers and
sisters, among your children
and take note if you do not see
a strong presence of these
behaviours.

Behaviour

Already in this New Year
many have been disappointed
by the behaviour of their chil-
dren, they have been made to
feel worthless by the actions of
their spouse, they have been
crushed by the relationship
with their neighbours, and hurt
by the attitude of friends. But,
my friend, what should you do?
Do you throw your hands up
and say that God should not
allow these things to happen
to you? Or do you claim that
he is powerless and does not


BISHOP F FERGUSON

exists. No! No! No! Remem-
ber that our world was plunged
into sin thousands of years ago
when our fore-parents yielded
to temptation and disobeyed
God. Today we are experienc-
ing the curse of sin as it is man-
ifested in sickness, disease and
ungodly behaviour. We, how-
ever do not have to live with
fear and doubts about the
future if we are secured in our
relationship with Jesus Christ.
To know him as Lord and Sav-
iour is to know freedom. Free-
dom from your own guilty past


and the evil you might have
done and freedom from the
fear of the present and the
future.

Strength

He gives you strength for
each day and bright hope for
each tomorrow so that you
have peace in the midst of each
storm you encounter. When
you know God he empowers
you to climb all of your moun-
tains and cross all of your Red
Sea experiences with confi-
dence. He makes us the head
and not the tail. He puts us
above and not below. The
Apostle Paul described the
believer not as weaklings or
defeated persons, but as more
than conquerors through him
that loved us. He gives us hope
and when we have hope we
have strength, courage and
desire to overcome all of our
difficulties.
The world around us, includ-
ing the people and events of
everyday life, may be operating
in a negative mode, it may be
going no where fast, in fact it
may just be outright depress-
ing from your point of view.
However, my friend, there is
hope in God, the future is a


clean slate that is unblemished
by the human weaknesses of
hatred, jealousy, covetousness
and spiritual blindness. The
future has not been soiled with
negative attitudes and behav-
iours, therefore you can enjoy
it one day at a time.
Those who trust in God need
not fear the future for he who
holds the future also holds our
hand. The Psalmist David
declares in the 46th Psalm that:
"God is our refuge and
strength, a very present help in
trouble. Therefore will not we
fear though the earth be
removed and though the
mountains be carried into the
midst of the sea." Twice in this
very Psalm, he gives the assur-
ance of God's presence and
penned these words, "The
Lord of hosts is with us: The
God of Jacob is our refuge."
Whatever you are facing in
this New Year and regardless
of what your past may have
been, you can face the future
with hope and ride out your
storms. If you ask how, there is
a simple solution, accept Jesus
as Saviour, pray everyday,
believe and practice God's
word and you will have the
tools and the confidence to go
forward with hope.


MEMBERS of the St
Matthew's Church School pre-
sented on the weekend "A gift

the principle that we live
as we believe. If I believe
that I can't do anything
then that is exactly what
will be me, not doing any
thing. But, if I believe that,
"I can do all things through
Christ who strengths me."
Then I can accomplish the
impossible. Why? Because
God says only believe.
When God's word says
something He has a
responsibility to validate
what He says. Remember,
God can't lie, neither can
His word return to Him
void. He has to do all that
He says that He will do.
I always wonder why it
is so hard for us to just
believe? What is our prob-
lem that we think that we
can do His job. How fool-
ish of us. We can't even
wake up in the morning by
ourselves. We must leave
God to do His job because
He is more than capable of
doing what He does.
For whatever reason
God always surprises us, I
mean \\e are amazed that
"God came through" VWell

We little knew that morning that
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Lovingly remembered by your beloved and
devoted wife Charlotta, your Children Anne, Hammond, Joan, Shirley.
