Blaze destroys historic

hotel, prominent resident

is presumed dead


Residents call for action over sewage overflow


* By KARIN HERIG and
CARA BRENNEN
Tribune.Staff Reporters
JUST weeks after a fatal
plane crash killed 11 members,
of its community, Bimini once
again faces a tragedy with the
destruction of the island's main
tourist attraction and the pre-
sumed death of a prominent
resident.
A fire which broke out in the
early hours of yesterday
destroyed the world famous
Compleat Angler Hotel, reduc-
ing one of the old stomping
grounds of noted American
novelist Ernest Hemingway to
rubble.
The Angler's caretaker,
Julian Brown, a former
Olympian in his 60s, is pre-
sumed to have died in the blaze
after helping the hotel's only
guest at the time to escape.
The fire destroyed priceless
Hemingway memorabilia and
irreplaceable historical artifacts.
The island's Chief Councillor
Natasha Bullard-Rolle strug-
gled for words as she described
what the loss means to the com-
munity.
"Now we are faced with not
only the news that there was yet
another loss of life, but this is a
huge economic loss as well," she
told The Tribune yesterday.
She said the hotel, which was
built in 1935, was the oldest
business establishment on the
island. Built by Bimini's lead-
ing entrepreneur at the time,
Harcourt Brown, it was the
Bahamas' first fishing club.
The Compleat Angler Hotel


has over the years become
world famous for having been
one of Hemingway's old haunts.
It is presumed that he penned
parts of two of his novels while
staying at the hotel.
Hemingway made the small
hotel his headquarters on and
off from 1935 to 1937 and the
room in which, he stayed
remained available to guests
throughout the years.
Part of hotel was also trans-
formed into the Hemingway
Museum, featuring walls lined
with photographs of the author
and other memorabilia, includ-
ing a replica of his fishing vessel
Pilar.
The museum's inventory
most notably included a photo
with Hemingway holding up the
remains of a 500-pound blue
marlin mauled by sharks, which
is said to have provided the
inspiration for his Nobel Prize
winning novel The Old Man
and the Sea.
Located on the main street
of Alice Town, and affiliated
with the Bimini Blue Water
Resort, it was built at a time
when big-game fishing was at
its peak.
Built with Bahamian timber,
the face of the building was.
from rum barrels used during
the Prohibition era.
During Prohibition, Alice
Town was the Bahamas' largest
port and rum runners would
load their high speed boats with
liquor and smuggle it into Flori-
da. This gave the local economy
a significant boost until 1933.

Man fights for life

after shooting
A MAN is fighting for his life after being
shot numerous times.
Two male friends, one a 43-year-old res-
ident of Windsor Lane, off Soldier Road,
were in the area of Glendale Subdivision at
4.30 am on Friday when they were
approached by two armed men dressed in
dark clothing and wearing tams.
According to reports, the two men sud-
denly opened fire on the two friends.
The 43-year-old man was struck in his
hip, while his friend sustained multiple
gunshot wounds to his stomach, hip area
and groin.
The victims were immediately rushed
to Princess Margaret Hospital.
At press time last night the Windsor
Lane man was listed in stable condition.
His friend, however, was in serious condi-
tion.
The identities of both men had not yet
been established, press liaison officer
Inspector Walter Evans said.
Investigations into the matter continue.

FREEPORT Humane
Society and Veterinary offi-
cials are concerned about the
outbreak of a fatal canine dis-
ease that has already killed
several dogs on Grand
Bahama.
Tip Burrows, an official at
the Grand Bahama Humane
Society, reported that 26 dogs
at the shelter in Freeport have
died of the deadly disease,


which local veterinarians have
been unable to officially diag-
nose.
She said the shelter is
presently under quarantine
and has suspended its adop-
tion, and acceptance of stray
and unwanted animals until
the situation can be brought
under control. Only 38 dogs
have survived at the shelter.
"We still don't know why

BIMINITES are once again struggling
to come to grips with a crippling blow to
their community, this time the loss of a
world famous and historical.landmark
on that island The Compleat Angler
Hotel.
After fire ravaged the hotel, once the
stomping ground of noted American
author Ernest Hemingway, residents are
fearful for the economic future of the
island.
The island's Chief Councillor Natasha
Bullard-Rolle was overcome with. emo-
tion as she spoke with The Tribune yes-
terday.
"Just like on December 19, (when the
tragic Chalk's flight crashed killing 11
Biminites) its almost like we are in a
trance once again," she said.
She said that residents were still strug-
gling to come to grips with the crash and
to restore some degree of normalcy N hen
this latest tragedy struck.
*"Now we are faced with not onl\ the
news that there %\as \et another loss of
life. but this is a huge economic loss as
well."
She explained that the hotel was the
oldest business on the island.
'"It was an outstanding tourist attrac-
tion. we had people who would seek to
travel to Bimini lust to see the Compleat
Angler."
Mrs Bullard-Rolle said that in addition
to "irreplaceable and tangible" Hemmg-
"av memorabilia, the museum at the
Compleat Angler contained historical
photos of Bimini from the days it was
used as a rum-running base.
It was also the home of noted artist
C)Oze Brown, who wrote the popular song
Laiy Loit in Binuni.
Noted Bahamian recording artist Ste'ie
S and his band also got their start at the
club, and still played at the bar for free.
In fact. Mrs Bullard-Rolle. said that the
Compleat Angler was one of the fe"w
social hangouts for residents.
She said that Bmuni residents will once
again hate to dig deep inside themselves
and find enough spirit to bring them
through this latest ordeal.


Residents call for sewage R

problem to be addressed WLEF MIRE
M OTHE MATADOR


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter

FRUSTRATED East Street north resi-
dents are calling on government to address
the constant sewage overflow problem in
the area. Colin Armbrister, who has lived in
the area for 25 years, said he is tired of the
sight and smell of human waste.
'He said that the neighbourhood has been
dealing with the problem for 20 years and
over the last five years, it has been worse.
'Yesterday, The Tribune visited the home
oIMr Armbrister, who lives a few buildings
Down from Audley C Kemp and Sons liquor
st re, where sewage could clearly be seen
o the doorstep.
,According to Mr Armbrister, anyone who
wilks the street in the area comes into con-
tact with the raw sewage. He added that
passing cars often splash the contaminated
water on passers-by.
The problem appears to be coming from
a government sewer line in the area, accord-
ing to residents.,


Mr Armbrister said he complained to the
Ministry of Health before Christmas and
was referred to MP Ron Pinder, the parlia-
mentary secretary for environmental health,
who was not available at the time.
He was further referred to the
Department of Environmental Health, he
said.
"Every time their pump breaks down ...
to pump the sewer away, it backs up to
me," he said. "I can't even breathe some-
times sometimes I go to bed and I can't
breathe too good."

Bothered

Rodney Darling, a barber in the area,
said that he and his customers are con-
stantly bothered by the foul odour from
the sewage.
"That is a terrible thing that ain't like
clear water, that is mess, and facing that
every morning that is not too nice," said
Mr Darling.


The site of the sewage overflow is not
far from the headquarters of the Farm Road
Project; the pilot project of government's
Urbans Renewal Programme.
Project co-ordinator Assistant Superin-
tendent of Police Stephen Dean said that he
only became aware of the problem in the
past day.
He said that the Water and Sewerage
Corporation has been contacted, as well
as the Department of Environmental
Health.
Mr Dean said that he spoke with an offi-
cial at Water and Sewerage, who told him
that an assessment crew was on the scene
yesterday morning to evaluate the prob-
lem.
When The Tribune contacted the Water
and Sewerage Corporation on Friday after-
noon, an official confirmed that the sewer
pipeline in the area is blocked.
He said that in order to fix the pipe, the
street will have to be dug up.
He said that workmen were sent to the
area last night to tackle the problem.

HAVING been kept for 48
hours in a police holding cell,
German investor Harald
Fuhrmann is to launch a new
campaign against the Bahamas,
this time protesting against,
"inhuman" detention facilities.
Within hours of being fined
$50 for presenting Attorney
General Alfred Sears with his
"sour lemon" award, which
included a spray can of deter-
gent and a yellow cup bearing
the label 'Justice Stinks', the
campaigner was back on the
warpath.
Mr Sears said he feared for
his life when Mr Fuhrmann
approached him during a legal
ceremony in Christ Church and
handed him a cylinder. In fact,
the "award" was Mr Fuhrman-
n's way of drawing attention to
what he regards as a corrupt
Bahamian legal profession. He
pleaded guilty to causing a
minor disturbance and the court
showed leniency.
However, before his appear-
ance, Mr Fuhrmann said he was
arrested and detained for two
days to await a hearing. And he
said the conditions were inde-
scribably bad.
"After five minutes, you get
an extreme headache because

there is a terrible urine scent,"
he said.
"I was held in a cell in East
Street. There was no water to
drink, nowhere to sleep and
only grits and bologna sausage
to eat. When people wanted to
go to the toilet, the officers
ignored them, so they urinated
against the cell wall.
"Even worse, the cell was full
of roaches and rodents. There


is no flush toilet and when you
eventually get into the toilet,
after booking it in advance, the
bowl is filthy brown.
"These detainees are treated
like garbage and they haven't
even been before the court to
establish their guilt or otherwise.
It is a disgraceful situation.
"Those cells are a hell-hole.
I needed a long shower to get
the awful smell off my body."

Crusade

Mr Fuhrmann, who has been
waging a ten-year Internet cru-
sade against some "corrupt"
Bahamian attorneys, says he will
now create more websites to
expose inhuman detention facil-
ities in the Bahamas.
"I have pictures and I intend
to show how bad the Bahamas
treats its own people. I have
been amazed at how many
Bahamians say they don't like
the Bahamas because of the cor-
ruption and injustice here.
"I intend to protest to the
Minister of National Security
Cynthia Pratt and also the police
commissioner, Paul Farquhar-
son.
"I was held with other pris-
oners for 48 hours and there was


no air-conditioning, no place to
sleep, nothing.
"There was one bench in the
cell and four people were left
arguing over who should use it
to sleep on. I recently had a
spinal operation and still suffer
pain.
"People here are not treated
like humans. This is an unsocial
country. You have an elite and a
lower class, and the lower class
is treated badly unless they can
get help from a church or polit-
ical group."
Mr Fuhrmann said his cam-
paign against Bahamian lawyers
will now resume with even
greater resolve.
He said: "There are more
than 800 lawyers, but there is
no law in this country. The
brochures say there are British
laws here, but that is all lies.
"The attorneys here are
above the law. There is a buddy-
buddy system and no justice."

FOCOL


EDITOR, The Tribune.
SHELL'S sale of its
Bahamas and Turks and
Caicos islands' operations to
FOCOL has received fairly
widespread media coverage.
The strong likelihood that
the sale may dramatically alter
the prevailing equilibrium
between petroleum distribu-
tors and "retailers has seem-
ingly gone unnoticed. I had
not intended commenting on
this potential market desta-
bilisation until sometime later
in the year.
I did not, however, feel I
could allow the Nassau Insti-
tute's recent statement that
Jamaica's gasoline prices had
increased since that country
became a PetroCaribe signa-
tory to go unchallenged.
Progression to the broader
gasoline topic, which I now
address, followed naturally.
The Institute's article
echoed a sentiment I penned
sometime ago regarding local
gasoline prices.
Market forces, which caused
gasoline prices to spike when
demand significantly out-
stripped supply, had similarly
caused prices to retreat once
crude production and gasoline
refining, disrupted by Katri-
na and Wilma, were restored.
The same market forces
which caused prices to spike
then normalize in the
Bahamas, produced similar
responses in Jamaica.
The Jamaica price decrease
is well documented in a
November 20, 2005 story in
The Sunday Observer
(www.jamaicaobserver.com),
under the bold caption:
"Petrol price down by 24%
since October".
The lead sentence of the
story reads: "Fuel prices in
Jamaica have declined by as
much as 24 per cent in the six
weeks since it peaked at the
beginning of October, the fig-
ures show".
The Nassau Institute's asser-
tion that prices have risen in
Jamaica is erroneous.
While the Institute and I
share a common view on the
posture the Bahamas should
adopt regarding PetroCaribe,
Jamaica's significant, high
interest rate debt and the
bilateral agreements it has
forged with Venezuela, secur-
ing low interest rate loans of
close to US$200 million to
facilitate expansion and mod-
ernisation of the Petrojam
refinery in Kingston and
US$300 million to complete
the final phase of Highway
2000, the toll road segment
linking Kingston to Ocho


Rios, likely justifies its partic-
ipation in the accord.
Now back to FOCOL's pur-
chase of Shell's business inter-
ests.
Prior to the FOCOL pur-
chase, except for Freeport, the
multi-nationals controlled
bulk petroleum operations.
Nationals "controlled"
retail, service station opera-
tions, this sector of the econo-
my having been "reserved"
for Bahamians.
The multi-nationals rely on
"not quite independent" third
party operators to get their
products into the market
place.
FOCOL, not only operates
in the bulk petroleum sphere
but also owns and operates
service stations in Grand
Bahama through its Grand
Sun subsidiary.
Because of its Bahamian
ownership, it can presumably
now do likewise elsewhere in
the Bahamas. FOCOL will
thus be able to exercise far
more leverage over its retail-
ers than its competitors.
On the surface, to restore
the equilibrium which has
been disturbed, the present
restriction on ownership/oper-
ation of service stations should
be lifted.
Such a step will enhance the
Commerce and Industry Min-
ister's prospects to champion
the people's cause by lowering
gasoline prices, an objective
he has assiduously pursued.
Thus far, recommendations
from his Ministry that guar-
anteed margins presently
earned by distributors and
retailers alike should be rolled
back appear to have fallen on
deaf ears among his Cabinet
colleagues.
The only impediment to
Venezuela's PDVSA estab-
lishing bulk gasoline storage
facilities and its Total brand
owning/operating service sta-
tions will have been removed
once the present ownership
restrictions are lifted.
Consumers should then be
able to purchase gasoline a
minimum of 80 cents below
prices charged by other sta-
tions (based on figures prof-
fered earlier by the Minister),
without the Bahamas ratify-
ing the PetroCaribe accord.
The National Petroleum
Corporation foetus, which has
endured an extended gesta-
tion period, can immediately
be aborted.

Of course, the chosenr
few", who have been looking,
forward to meaningful
employment within the Cor-!
poration, will no doubt be
sorely disappointed. :
Liberalising the market will
regrettably likely result in the
demise of several poorly oper-
ated service stations.
In a previous letter to the
editor, I indicated that the
moratorium on opening .9~
new service stations ought o,
be lifted.
It is imperative, as we pr,
pare for the globalisatip"n:
onslaught, that we begin t:
eliminate protectionist barrio,
ers, erected to give a handful
of individuals a start in busi-
ness, many times to the detri,
ment of the wider public.~ ; i.
Market forces, rather 'than:
continuing protectionism',
should now become the det&e
minant. '
Protectionism benefits'the'
few.
The interest of the rnriati
will be best served by an 6peni
market place giving rise to
lower prices.

Bahamian contractor claims



he is owed money by ministry


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT A Bahamian contrac-
tor is claiming that he still owed money by
the Ministry of Housing for work done on
a home in the Millennium Gardens Sub-
division over a year ago.
Urban Cartwright said he entered into
a building contract with the government
on July 1, 2004 for the construction of a
three bedroom, two bathroom home at a
cost of $58,000.
He broke his contract with the govern-
ment during phase two of the project after
items and materials were allegedly stolen
from the site by another contractor, he
said.
Mr Cartwright claims that he is owed a


total $8,671 $6,000 for labour in stage
two and $2,671 for the value of the alleged
stolen items covered under the risk insur-
ance.
He has received only $1,041 from the
ministry to date for labour in stage two, he
claims.
"I just want what is owed to me and I
am calling on the Minister of Housing
Shane Gibson to step in and intervene in
the matter," he said.
Gordon Major, director of technical
services at the Ministry of Housing, said
Mr Cartwright failed to complete four of
the eight requirements in stage two.
Additionally, he said, corrective work
had to be carried out on the electrical
and plumbing work done in stage one.
In response to the stolen items, Mr


Major explained that the risk insurance
covers only items stolen from the building.
"We are not responsible for materials
that the contractor leaves on site," he
said.
Mr Cartwright claims that 32 pieces of
forms for the beltcourse and various oth-
er items were stolen from the building
by another contractor.
He reported the incident to Mr Major,
who promised to look into the matter,
he said.
He also filed a complaint with the
Grove Police Station.
"This is the second time that items were
stolen from the site and nothing was done
about it, so I stopped the work and told
them I was no longer interested in the
project."


Mr Cartwright stands behind the qual-
ity of work.
"1 have been in the construction busi-
ness for 26 years. I have been contracted
by the government for eight years.
"There was nothing wrong with stage
one and I question why Mr Major waited
almost 11 months to say that the plumb-
ing work in phase one was wrong. He
never pointed that out earlier during
phase one," he said.
Mr Cartwright retained legal services of
the law firm Davis & Co in October 2005,
which has sent several letters to the min-
istry in an effort to resolve the matter,
he said.
"The facts are before the ministry and
I am asking the minister to step in and
resolve the problem," he said.

Amendments to


exchange controls

By NATARIO, McKENZIE

NEW amendments to the exchange controls on capital accounts in
the Bahamas are expected to further liberalise and deepen the capital
market and improve the viability of the Bahamas International Stock
Exchange, finance officials noted.
The Central Bank of the Bahamas yesterday announced 10 amend-
ments to the previous exchange control regime, focusing mainly on the
relaxation of capital account restrictions.
These changes are estimated to have an impact of $50 million to $60
million annually) on fbreignrieerves:according to Central Bank-gov-
ernor \Vendy Craig. : .., ,
Minister of State for Finance James Smith-said; that it.is hoped that
the these ameiindments Will change "the Bahamian outlook in terms of
investment strategies".
The National Insurance Board, which was previously only allowed
to invest its savings in domestic assets, will now be permitted to invest
a maximum of $25 million per year in foreign securities.
This, according to Mr Smith, widens the investment policies of the
fund and hopefully will strengthen it in terms of potentially maximis-
ing returns to Bahamian owners of the fund.
The previous premium bid and offer rate of 25 and 20 per cent
respectively for residents making real estate investments overseas has
been halved to 12.5 per cent and 10 per cent respectively, it was
announced.
Existing investors, should they choose, will be given until March 2006
to liquidate their capital investments through the Investment Curren-
cy Market at the old offer rate of 20 per cent.
With respect to real estate investment in timeshare properties
abroad, residents may now invest up to $25,000 per family unit once
every 10 years.
On the issue of employee stock option shares, it was announced that
the investment limit has been increased from $10,000 per year to
$25,000.
Residents employed by offshore and foreign owned companies who
have been allowed to participate in the employee stock option, which
is usually given as a benefit of employment, can now take further
advantage of this opportunity.
When giving up Bahamian residency to live abroad the limit to the
amount of money a person can transfer out of the Bahamas has been
increased from $125,000 Bahamian to $250,000 per family.
On the issue of consumer loans, permanent and temporary resi-
dents are now allowed to borrow up to $50,000 Bahamian for consumer
related purposes. This is an increases from previous borrowing limits
of $15,000 for the purchase of vehicles and $6,000 for local expenses.
Temporary residents who have lived and worked in the Bahamas for
at least three years may now get Bahamian mortgage loans of up to
$200,000 to finance owner-occupied dwellings. Previously these persons
were permitted to borrow up to 50 per cent of the mortgage amount.
Mr Smith added that Bahamian companies listed on BISX may
now be cross listed on principal CARICOM exchanges.
"The affect of this is to permit the Bahamian investor to expand his
investment policies in foreign securities" he explained.

Negative perception of

Online boost for Blood and Fire


THE controversial new book
about the Oakes murder case
has been given a major online
boost by the Internet's biggest
sales outlet.
It is being offered by Ama-
zon in a joint package with the
new novel by bestselling crime
writer John Grisham.
It means the book, Blood and
Fire, by Nassau journalist John
Marquis, will be exposed to hun-
dreds of thousands of Grisham
fans over the next few weeks.
And it will be tied in with a
discounted package, with Blood
and Fire selling alongside
Grisham's latest novel, The Bro-
ker.
Mr Marquis, The Tribune's
managing editor, said last night:
"Mr Grisham is a very popular
crime writer. Amazon have evi-
dently decided to offer this spe-
cial two-book deal because a lot
of Grisham fans were buying
Blood and Fire.
"This opens up tremendous
new sales opportunities for my
book all over the world. I'm
very pleased about it."
Also encouraging is Ama-
zon's announcement that it is
now down to the last two hard-


back copies of Blood and Fire,
but that more are on order.
The good news is echoed by
Nassau bookshops, whose pre-
Christmas rush for the book has
made it one of the most suc-
cessful launches ever staged in
the Bahamas.
Gregory Lee of Island Mer-
chants said: "I can't remember
any other launch like it. The
hardback is still selling well,
though supplies are now run-
ning very low. I think the trade
paperback will come out next
to cash in on the tourist mar-
ket."
Also encouraging for the
author is the positive feedback,
with Amazon readers giving the
book a four-star rating.
He said: "Blood and Fire was
launched right here in Nassau,
which is a long way from the big
book centres like London and
New York.
"It has therefore not been
able to cash in on big reviews,
although there have been sev-
eral stories about the book in
international papers. All in all,
though, it has been a tremen-
dous launch, especially for a first
book."

YOUNG MAN'S VIEW


0 By ADRIAN GIBSON

HYPOCRISY and dou-
bletalk appear to be a
plague infecting many people,
most notably today's politicians
and public leaders.
I think that in this regard act-
ing Governor General Paul
Adderley's acceptance of the
post as the queen's representa-
tive, after years of denouncing
British honours, cannot go
unchided.
While Mr Adderley can be
considered an elder statesman
and deserves due appreciation
for his contributions to our
nation, his career has been
marred by controversial positions
and what some see as flip-flop-
ping.
After some years as an early
member of the PLP, Mr Adder-
ley became frustrated with Sir
Lynden Pindling's leadership and
left to form his own party, the
NDP.
During this time, he vehe-
mently opposed the PLP, but in a
move comparable to Bernard
Nottage's, he rejoined the PLP
after the 1972 election, which
had been promoted as a refer-
endum on independence.
For several years, Mr Adder-
ley has denounced the signifi-
cance of representing the Queen
- our former colonial monarch
- in an independent Bahamas.
Even further, Mr Adderley
has been captured on record
expressing his antagonism
towards accepting honours from
the Queen.
The irony of this today, and a
most laughable one, is that he is
now the representative of Queen
Elizabeth II. Well, I'll be! Is this
the same man who resisted
appointing well-established
lawyers as Queen's Counsel?
Now, will Paul Adderley defy
the urge or will he accept the
nudge to become the full-fledged
GG? Will Mr Adderley make
the eight-hour trek across the
Atlantic to be knighted Sir Paul?
In addition to what appears
to be the acting Governor Gen-
eral's recent flip-flopping, he is
known to have engendered con-
troversy in the past by undiplo-
matically dabbling into provoca-
tive matters.
According to Michael Craton
and Gail Saunders, in 1973 the
Bahamas exerted its sovereignty
by negotiating rental payments
with the US for the AUTEC
base and other general surveil-
lance facilities.
Additionally, the government
attained a $10 million loan to
develop the BARTAD agricul-


tural programme in Andros.
However, in an effort to rene-
gotiate they later sought
increased payments, extra devel-
opment loans, long-term com-
mitments and assurances of local
employment.
However, Craton and Saun-
ders note that the US stood by
earlier agreements and declared
the ineligibility of the Bahamas
for soft development loans due
to the annual per capital income
(then $2,000) being twice the lim-
it for US foreign aid.
Being External Affairs Minis-
ter at that time, Mr Adderley's
response led to tense relations
with the US when he said that
they would be asked to "disband
and leave their installations" if
no agreement could be reached
(Craton and Saunders).
Finally, in 1978 Sir Lynden
Pindling eased tensions by saying
that his government had not
intended that the US should get
out and leave our country or
anything like that.
In more recent times, Paul
Adderley stunningly wrote a dis-
courteous and ominous letter to
Sol Kerzner of Kerzner Interna-
tional that accused him of swin-
dling the FNM government into
granting generous concessions'
for the mega Atlantis resort on
Paradise Island.
In words reminiscent of the
days of the "old" PLP's victimii-
sation, Mr Adderley portentous-:
ly told Mr Kerzner that if he held
the then government to the
terms of their agreement "you
stand to risk having to renegoti-
ate it in 1997, one year before it'
comes into effect and after you
will have spent or committed
most of your company's $300'
million; or your very best bet
would be that you would have
to renegotiate after the elections
in.2002 when your agreement
would be four years old with 16
years to run?"
Mr Adderley felt that every
Bahamian, together with the
international finance community,
would support a renegotiation
of Kerzner's agreement. His
notion backfired and was widely
shunned!
One wonders where was Paul
Adderley when the Baha Mar
deal was being negotiated?
In this New Year and with a
looming election, let's all be less
hypocritical and more straight-
forward and prudent.
Power is an all-consuining
force that leads many people to
forget their own words and
become rattled by what could be
interpreted by an onlooker to be
selfish ambitions and the knack
for social prominence!

* By FELICITY

Tribune Staff Reporter
PERSONS wishing to leave
Nassau should give Grand
Bahama serious considera-
tion as it has the capacity to
hold the entire Bahamian
population and has an
impressive development
record, Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA) deputy
chairman Mrs Willie Moss
said.
"We have the infrastruc-
ture to.accommodate 250,000
people: in Freeport alone, and
the entire island can accom-
modate the whole Bahamas
and more about 600,000
without bursting at the
seams," she told delegates at
the National.Tourism Con-
ference yesterday.
Addressing the topic of
development planning during
the final day of the confer-
ence, Mrs Moss said Freeport
is a model for success, and
perhaps "the most-planned
city in the region".
She explained Freeport has
in place a development plan
covering five decades, which
began being implemented in
1995.
The master plan for
Freeport has been so suc-
cessful that it has now extend-
ed to some of the extremities
of the island, she added.
Mrs Moss gave the example
of the Maritime Center,
which has become "tremen-
dously industrialized" to the
point where considerations
are now being made to move
the cruise port from the area.
She said the GBPA has
entered into discussions with


Grand Bahama Port

Authority deputy

chairman Willie Moss

speaks at National

Tourism Conference


the Ministry of Tourism to
this end, and a feasibility
study is underway to find a
suitable alternative site that
will offer maximum exposure
to the island for cruise visi-
tors.
She noted that on one
hand, Grand Bahama was
dealt a blow the closure of
the Royal Oasis Resort in
2004 due to hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne; but on
the other, the island is set to
benefit from a commitment
by the Ginn Corporation to
develop 2,000 acres of land
in West End.

Salaries

The closure of Royal Oasis'
meant the loss of 1,100 jobs,
$25 million in salaries, the
closure of 1,050 rooms, and
extended losses of over $60
million for the Grand
Bahama economy.
In an effort to encourage
persons to invest in grand
Bahama, the GBPA has
added a component on its
website, gbdevco.com. which
allows visitors to pinpoint and
examine property from an


aerial perspective.
Tyrone Sawyer, director of
airlift development, told the
conference that he believes
it is important for zones to
be established throughout the
archipelago to preserve land
for Bahamians who do not
have the financial resources
to purchase land at this time.
Mrs Moss said the issue of
preserving land for Bahami-
ans had been considered by
the board, but zoning had
been specifically avoided
because board members did
not want Bahamians to feel
as if they were being put in
one category and excluded
from other opportunities.
Focusing on some of the
positive attributes of Grand
Bahama, and reasons why it
represents a "wonderful
opportunity" for investment,
Mrs Moss reminded delegates
that il is the home of the leg-
endary Bonefish Foley; home
of one of the nation's premier
properties in Old Bahama
Bay: home of Eight Mile
Rock, the largest settlement
in the Bahamas: and home of
the largest explored under-
water cave system in the
world in East End.

Obie Wilchcombe highlights




priorities for Ministry of Tourism


FROM page one

forefathers fought for and sacrificed
for. Why can't I get more young people
to see that there is no match for 'My
Bahamas'? There should be no match
to us. We are already out there, others
are catching up."
He said National Tourism Week
(NTW) was not an opportunity for
his ministry's staff to pat themselves
on the back or blow their own horns.
Despite the fact that occupancy levels
are up, as well as the average daily
rates, Mr Wilchcombe said they want-
ed to look at "where we are, and
where we need to be."
"We are not afraid to work with the
difficult or hard questions. That's what
I like most about the Ministry of
Tourism we're unafraid to admit
where we are, and identify and


address the difficulties, tweaking it all
the time to make it better at each
passing moment," said Minister Wilch-
combe.
Mr Wilchcombe wants to see
Bahamians move out of just offering
services in the industry, towards grab-
bing a piece of the investment pie. He
recalled the opening address of pro-
fessor Rex Nettleford, who encour-
aged tourism officials to own the
country, not just for themselves, but to
pave the way for future generations.
"Bahamians all over the country
have to buy into the love for the
Bahamas," said Mr Wilchcombe.
"Half of our difficulties relate to us
not understanding, and to allowing
others to carry our load."
He asked who was responsible for
cleaning our streets, for delivering
good service, or for creating and man-
ufacturing "our craft".


"Should we not tell the world every
day I can make a difference?"
Focusing on the entertainment
industry, Mr Wilchcombe said "we
have erred as a nation because we
closed our doors and have taken
entertainers out of our establish-
ments." He said a major review of
hotels has to be done, because he
doesn't see why one of them hasn't
an all Bahamian review showcased.
"We must bring entertainers back
into the tourism picture," he said,
adding that those who are sitting idle
now, will soon be engaged once the
ministry's efforts in that regard are
realized.
Speaking on the subject of the
facelift for Bay Street, Mr Wilch-
combe said he wants to see the
romance of old Nassau re-established,
announcing that a romance confer-
ence is in the works for late 2006, or


early 2007.
The diving industry, he said, needs
to be further developed, because of
the wonderful underwater, unmatched
in some areas to other underwater
sites around the world.
The ministry spent $300,000 in the
diving industry last year.
Call centres should be established in
this country in the near future, he said.
Looking at India's successful call cen-
tre industry, Mr Wilchcombe said he
would like to see less outsourcing of
calls to the US.
Indigenous Bahamian craft need to
swarm the markets at all spots around
the islands, he said, and China-made
souvenirs should be a thing of the
past.
He wants to be able to employ more
Bahamians in various areas of the
industry by introducing initiatives that
would lend to the creation of more


employment.
The ministry plans to produce,
magazine, featuring the real faces,
the Bahamas, which would be place
on aircraft, cruise ships, and hotels t
assist in giving the visitor more rea1
sons to return. '
In terms of the airport, the minister
said despite criticism, much work iV
being done, led by Minister Glenyt
Hanna Martin, to help with th'*
improvement of the airport. I
"I've seen all the criticism abot.f
the airport," he said. "We've bee')
moving all along to make it better
We want the level, throughout thl'
Commonwealth of the Bahamas, ft.
be higher, because we're movirfc
towards excellence. Excellence wit:
take us to a common, loftier goal." -
Finally, the minister wants to ste
world tourism sites developed
throughout the archipelago.


Ingraham gives promise


FROM page one

growth when the FNM left
office in 2002. A lot of time, he
said, was spent in preparing
Exuma for this "economic
boom." He said that the FNM
is pleased that they are arriv-
ing and reaching the goals
planned for.
However, he told Exumians
that they must not tarry. He
said it is important that they
take full advantage of the
opportunities that the various
developments in tourism are
making available.
It pained him, he said, that
the present government has
done so little to capitalise on
the foundations for develop-
ment left in place by the FNM
government.
"Instead they rest on our lau-
rels and attend opening cere-
monies for projects with which
they had little or nothing to do
in creating or fostering," he
said.
He added: "Don't be fooled


by the PLP. They're very inter-
ested in themselves; you count
for less. They hardly think
about or remember you, the
people, until its time to ask for
your vote."
He said that he has leader-
ship to offer to the island of
Exuma. He told supporters that
his service has always been
about creating opportunities for
the young men and women of
the country, and for the chil-
dren, so that they could achieve
their full potential.
"My service has been about
lending assistance to the job-
less, to the physically and or
mentally impaired, to the aged;
to all those least able to help
themselves," he said.
He said that the FNM is ded-
icated to Family Island devel-
opment. He reminded his lis-
teners that.while in office the
FNM upgraded and improved
ZNS radio reception and intro-
duced cable television and con-
nected the Family Islands, not
only to Nassau, but to the
world.


Bimini fire tragedy

FROM page one
Minister of Tourism and MP for Bimini Obie Wilchcombe
said yesterday, that this latest tragedy is a "knock-down, but not
a knock-out" for the island.
"I've found that these events make us stronger as a people.
Just like after the plane crash, we are now more united as a com-
munity."
Police on the island and a fire team sent in from Grand
Bahama are still investigating the cause of the fire.


"Because of the FNM,
nobody has to tell you what
goes on in your House of
Assembly; with channel 53, the
Parliamentary Channel, you
can sit in the comfort of your
homes and watch what goes on
from your living room televi-
sions," he said.
Mr Ingraham said he has
always wanted and still wants a
government that will work for
the benefit'and advancement
of all Bahamians.
"I want a government which
will remove political affiliation
as criterion to obtain a job or a
contract or a licence or a
favourable government deci-
sion.
"I want fair-play, fairness and
compassion to be the hallmark
of government administration.
We made tremendous strides
toward achieving these things
during tl\o consecutive terms
in office," said Mr Ingraham.
Mr Ingraham reminded Exu-
mians of the importance of reg-
istering to vote. He especially
encourage all those who did not
register to vote in the last elec-
tions, including those who
would have reached the age of
18 before the last elections, to
ensure that they register now.
"If you do not register, you
cannot vote and if you do not
vote you cannot determine who
the next government of the
Bahamas will be.
"Register, vote, and put the
FNM back in office for your
good, for the good of your chil-
dren andfor the good of our
beloved Bahamaland," he said.


Concerns over




fatal dog disease


FROM page one

diagnoses in laboratory tests,"
said Ms Burrows.
Although there has been
no positive identification, a
local veterinarian believes
strongly that it may be
canine distemper.
Dr Owen Hanna of
Caribbean Veterinary
Health Healing Centre said
they first noticed that dogs
were getting ill about three
to four weeks ago.
"We started seeing ani-
mals showing signs of canine
distemper, which is a rather
unique disease. Many dis-
eases affect one of the major
body systems, like the respi-
ratory system, digestive or
nervous system. But, this
particular disease is caused
by a virus and has the ability
to affect all of those sys-
tems."
Dr Hanna said infected
animals usually start out
with respiratory or digestive
symptoms.
He said animals may also
display puss-like nasal ahd
eye discharge. As the disease
progresses, the animal devel-
ops pneumonia with very
laboured breathing and an
extremely high temperature
of about 105 degrees.
According to Dr Hanna,
some animals have also
shown neurological prob-
lems such as lack of coordi-
nation and having difficulty
walking or having seizures.
"There are some animals,
but not all that are display-
ing a full range of the symp-
toms," he said.


Dr Hanna said that blood
samples have been sent to a
university abroad for testing
but has come back negative
for canine distemper.
"We have not been able to
confirm that it is what it is,
but they feel as we do that
we are dealing with canine
distemper."
Veteran veterinarian Dr
Allan Bater of Freeport Ani-
mal Clinic said that canine
distemper has not been seen
in the Bahamas for decades.
"Certainly, something is
going on, but I believe it
may be too early to give a
definitive opinion that it is
canine distemper."
Dr Hanna said that-they
are in the process of send-
ing off tissue samples to a
university abroad that car-
ries out special studies on
canine distemper.
"They are very interested
in this type of disease and
we really want to try to iden-
tify definitively exactly what
we are dealing with," he
said.
In the meantime, Dr Han-
na is urging pet owners to
ensure that their animals'
vaccination for distemper is
current.
"All dogs who are not cur-
rent within the last year on
their vaccination for distem-
per, we are recommending
that they come in and have a
vaccination done," he said.
Human Society official Tip
Burrows reported that an
animal was brought in from
Abaco experiencing similar
symptoms. The dog has since
been treated and has


returned home.
She noted that stray dogs
are very vulnerable to the
disease.
"Most the dogs we deal
with are strays. This disease
did not originate from the
Humane Society. It just so,
happens that we deal with,
neglected and unwanted'
stray dogs," she said.
According to Dr Hanna,-
the problem of stray animals
and animal roaming. could.
cause a serious outbreak. :.-
He said that they are see-
ing three dogs per day com-I
ing in as .patients and have:.
had to euthanise nine froi,:
the Humane Society ar.d:
other sources.
"The thing that makes the
situation in Freeport and iii',
other parts of the Bahamas"
so vulnerable is the large.
number of stray and owned:
dogs we have roaming thie
streets.
"Anytime we have a high-'"
ly contagious disease enter--
ing the environment it is
very easily spread. And with
all of these free roaming
dogs in our streets and cities'
it is a real problem because a
disease like canine distem-
per can spread throughout7
the community in no time,;'
and I think that is part of the"
problem we have.
"It is a very serious di's-
ease. There have been some:
animals treated that have.
responded and some that
have died and some that we.
had to put to sleep because"
they were in such poor coni-,
dition," he said.

ASSAILING
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
AFTER a year of tough
races on the sea, the South-
ern Cross has captured the
boat of the year title in the A
class.
Sailing away with top hon-
ours in the B class was The
Lady Natalie while the Lady
Eunice took the top prize in
the C class.
The decision, which was
noted to be a very tough one
by Bahamas Boat Owners and
Sailing Association (BBOSA)
commodore Phillip McPhee,
was revealed yesterday, on the
eve of the annual Boat of the
Year celebration
The event will be held today
on board the Island Link.
According to McPhee, the
continuous participation by
theboats made this year's
decision very tough:


McPhee noted that 2005
was the first time every boat
made an attempt to partici-
pate in all of the regattas.
Only a few points separated
the winner of the A class from
the runners-up. Finishing in
second in the A class was the
Red Stripes with Good News
coming in third.
Finishing in the second spot
in the C class was Bulla Reg
and the Lady Ruthnell came
in third.
Skippers
McPhee said: "We are
expecting all the boat skippers
to be on hand for the award
celebration.
"Last year was a great year
for regatta, most all the boats
sailed in the'regattas an
improvement from the pervi-
ous years.
"This year we are expecting


the same type of showing from
the skippers and their boats.
All of the regattas will be
judged on points."
Sailors will also have the
recently added national cham-
pion award to look forward to
at the celebrations.
The new award will be pre-
sented by McPhee.
Special awards will also be
given to captain Josh Green,
Mark Knowles, Jessie
Knowles and Elusie Thomp-
son at this time, for their con-
tribution to sloop sailing in the
country.
The annual New Year's
Day regatta is set to begin at
10am at Montagu Beach.
Hitting the waters first will
be the C class boats with the
A class boats setting sail at
1pm.
Boats sailing out of the B
class will set sail,next Satur-
day at 11am.
