Aircraft still not


located after


search called off


Ingraham hits out at PM over death penalty comment


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT BAD weather
and failing light forced US Coast
Guard and BASRA officials to
call off an air and sea search for a
small Bahamian-registered air-
craft that is believed to have
crashed in rough seas off Abaco
on Friday afternoon.
According to police reports, a
single engine Dragonfly aircraft
with registration number N 50453
piloted by Bahamian James H
Wells crashed around 1.05pm in
waters between Guana Cay and
Scotland Cay on the oceanside.
HowL ver, the aircraft was not
located up to press time on Friday
evening, and the US Coast Guard
only confirmed that a distress sig-
nal had been received.
Speaking with The Tribune at
'6.30 las night, Guana Cay resi-
dent Rady Albury said "they
found a transponder, but they did
not find a plane or anyone."
"We,found it strange that a
plane was not found because
there is a transponder and EPUR
on these planes and I find it
strange that the transponder was
not going off," said Mr James
Otton of Guana Fire Rescue.
"A lot of people have been
out looking all about where they
thought it went down," Mr
Albury said. "The Coast Guard
has been here and a bunch of pri-
vate planes, but nobody found
anything as yet. This happened
about two hours ago. It's getting
dark and I guess they will have
to suspend their search."
Another resident said he had
heard that it was "an ultra-light
plane, one of those put together


planes", but he did not know if
this report was true.
After 6 o'clock last night, The
Tribune received word that due to
eight to 12-foot seas and about
25-knot winds, the search had to
be called off.
Supt Basil Rahming reported
that Abaco police received infor-
mation about the crash from offi-
cials at the Abaco Airport Crash
Rescue shortly after 1pm on Fri-
day.
The US Coast Guard Station
in Miami also contacted police in
Grand Bahama with reports of a
plane crash off Abaco.
Mr Rahming said that search
and rescue vessels have been
unable to launch a surface search
due to extremely rough condi-
tions at sea.
However, it is reported that a
group of Guana Cay residents set
out in boats scouring the area for
the plane after learning news of
the crash.
An aircraft launched by BAS-
RA Abaco and a US Coast
Guard helicopter from AUTEC
Base in Andros have been unable
to locate the aircraft.
A Coast Guard official in Mia-
mi told The Tribune that they
picked up an activated distress
beacon, which is a requirement
on all aircraft.
The Coast Guard helicopter
search team had still not located
the plane around 3.30pm on Fri-
day after some two hours during
its search three miles off Trea-
sure Cay.
Mr Rahming said that BASRA
officials in Freeport have also

Investigation

after body found

* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Grand Bahama Police have
launched an investigation into the discovery of a
badly decomposed body in the Lincolnshire Park
Subdivision.
According to Supt Basil Rahming, the discov-
ery was made sometime around 5.30pm Thursday
when a resident smelled a foul odour and saw a
flock of vultures in bushes near his property.
When police searched the area, the body of
an unidentified man was found some 80 feet in
bushes adjacent to the property of Mr Teirance
Strachan.
Supt Rahming said the victim appeared to have
sustained injuries to the head. The man was
dressed in a pair of black Dickie pants, black
nylon belt, white long-sleeved shirt, blue-hooded
sweat top, black shoes and white socks.
Mr Rahming is urging anyone with information
that may lead to the man's identity or the cir-
cumstances surrounding his death to contact the
police.
* STABBING
Police are also investigating the stabbing of a
19-year-old youth who was involved in an alter-
cation with a group of young men on Thursday.
Randall Brown, a resident of 34E East Indian-
man Road, was stabbed several times about the
body with a knife sometime around 8.30pm in
the vicinity of Cora's Place on Sergeant Major
Road.
He was taken by ambulance to Rand Memor-
ial Hospital, where he is detained in stable con-
ditiori.
Supt Rahming said police have arrested a 27-

Four families given further
extension to prevent eviction

* By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
AT THE urging ofbthe Abaco Christian Coun-
cil, four Spring Citn fanmihes were given a fur-
ther extension of two weeks to February 9 to
make proper arrangements for mortgage loans on
rental payments to prevent eviction, the Min-
istry of Housing said.in a press release yestel-
day.
The release %as in resp.ip.ne to the dispute over
the newly constructed subdivision in Spring City,
Abaco, :,ter eviction notices were given to several
residents.
Late on Thursday the ministry said it was
informed by NEMA coordinator Neil Campbell
that two of the occupants served with eviction
notices had sought to secure mortgage loans vith
local banks in Abaco.
"This positive development is most welcomed
by the Minister of Housing and National Insur-
ance and we are confident of an amicable reso-
lution to this matter," the release said.
New homes were built in Spring City for Aba-
conians who had been displaced during Hurri-
cane Jeanne in 2004.
According to the ministry, the residents were
given 90 days to start payment or their new
homes.
However, residents understood that the homes,
given them by government were free.
In yesterday's press release, the ministry
described Snake Cay the former home of the
residents as a small community "consisting of 12
families squatting on government owned-land
and lacking proper housing and without any of the
usual amenities of water, electricity, paved roads
and telephone, which was particularly hard hit".

Phone records presented in Mario Miller murder trial


* By NATARIO MCKENZIE
PHONE records of both
Tamar Lee, alias Ricardo Miller,
and deceased Mario Miller show
that on the morning of June 22,
2002, the day Mario Miller was
found dead, the two men called
each other several times.
Prosecution witness Dwight
Fernander, Fraud Control Man-
ager at the Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company Ltd, pre-


sented the court yesterday with
cell phone records of accused
Ricardo Miller and the deceased
Mario Miller.
Mr Fernander told the jury
that on June 24, 2002 he had
been instructed to retrieve this
information from the corpora-
tion's data collection system.
Fernander told the court that
at 8.40 am on June 22, 2002, the
first call was made from a cell
phone number registered to


Ricardo Miller. Mr Fernander
noted that this call lasted for
approximately two minutes. Mr
Fernander noted that of the 10
calls made either to or from
Mario Miller's cell phone that
morning, five of them were
either to or from the accused,
Tamar Lee, alias Ricardo Miller.
None was more than two min-
utes long, according to Mr Fer-

DESCRIBING Prime Minis-
ter Perry Christie's recent pro-
nouncements in support of the
d.ath pe la'ty as a "shameless
case of mouthing" and "pure
pandering", FNM leader and
former prime minister Hubert
Ingraham claims Mr Christie has
resorted to this tactic, because
"people no longer believe his
promises."
Mr Ingraham made the claim
last night at the FNM rally in
Long Island.
Also at the rally Mr Ingraham
welcomed into the ranks of the
party Long Island MP Larry
Cartwright.
"I welcome him on behalf of
all the parliamentary members
of the party, on behalf of all the
officers of the party, on behalf of
FNMs everywhere. Welcome,
my brother.
"I should like to thank the
party officers, members and sup-
porters in Long Island and all
who have contributed to this
happy occasion. I appreciate
your honesty and forthrightness;
I promise you that the party and
the new FNM government will
listen to the voice of Long
Island," Mr Ingraham said.

Calls
In the wake of calls for capital
punishment to be carried out
after the recent prison break,
Mr Christie at the funeral of
slain prison guard Dion Bowles
said he was in favour of hanging.
"But don't wait for them to
hang anybody. This is a shame-
less case of mouthing what some
people want to hear pure
pandering, nothing more. The
hanging bandwagon is rolling
and Mr Christie just wants to
get on board," said Mr Ingra-
ham. The FNM leader claimed
that the prime minister "knows
he is in trouble so he will jump
on any bandwagon he thinks will
get him some votes."
Mr Ingraham also described
the Christie government as one
of "reapers not sowers".
"I don't believe it is an exag-
geration to say that most of their
successes have come from rid-

Plans for Coastal

Awareness Month
PLANNING has begun for
Coastal Awareness Month, which
will be observed in April this year.
The Coastal Awareness Commit-
tee announced yesterday that it has
met and begun preparations for a
series of events to commemorate the
occasion.
The committee is made up of
stakeholders from the private and
public sectors who have an interest in
promoting the sustainable develop-
ment of the Bahamas.
"Our Committee was formed to
bring national attention to the chal-
lenges of sustainable tourism devel-
opment of coastal communities,"
said Earlston McPhee, general man-
ager of sustainable development for
the Ministry of Tourism and chair-
man of the committee.
"We have a dynamic committee
and it is our goal to heighten the
public's awareness even more this
year of the importance of preserving
and protecting our coastline.
"The tourism industry is respon-
sible for approximately two-thirds
of all jobs and contributes some two
billion dollars to our economy and
critical to this continued develop-
ment is the maintenance of healthy
coastline the mainstay of our prod-
uct offering," he said.
The committee is planning events,
including national church services,
television programmes, a national t-
shirt day, a marine exhibition, an art
competition, beach restoration pro-
jects and educational field trips.


Former senator tells prefects:


this is only the beginning for you



Tanya McCartney speaks at workshop,


THE future of the
Bahamas looks bright thanks
to the quality of student lead-
ership said former FNM sen-
ator Tanya McCartney.
At a workshop for prefects
hosted by Claridge Primary
School yesterday, Ms
McCartney told students that
they are being prepared for
greater service in the future.
"Your job is very impor-
tant, not just to your school
but also to the community
and this is only the beginning
for you", said Ms McCartney,


while speaking to the stu-
dents on the topic "Leaders
Today for Tomorrow's
Future".
The annual workshop is
designed to enhance the lead-
ership skills of prefects from
a number of schools and
inspire them to take on the
role of student leaders.
Ms McCartney told the
prefects not to be afraid to
stand up for what is right and
to appreciate the privilege of
being chosen as a student
leader.


"You are not a prefect by
accident, but you are here fof
a reason and the other stu-
dents should want to follow
your example", she said.
When asked by a student
how she became successful;
Ms McCartney said she feels
success is personal; that it lies
in setting goals and making
them realities.
She encouraged the pre-
fects to live their lives in a
way that will cause people to
remember them for the good
they have done.

Health tax 'a





thinly veiled form





of income tax'


EDITOR, The Tribune.
ANY government deduction
from wages, based on income,
with higher income earners pay-
ing more than lower income earn-
ers, and a cut off line at the bot-
tom is a form of Income Tax. The
only difference with this so-called
Health Tax is that the employer
pays a portion for those
employed. True Health insurance
is calculated on the basis of your
actual physical and mental health
status. The poorer your health,
the more you pay for the insur-
ance. It has nothing to do with
your income. So a health tax
which has nothing to do with your
health, is simply a form of Income
Tax.
The struggling small business-
man understands when he pays
the full percentage that this is a
tax on his income. He still has to
pay National Insurance, plus his
own private insurance, as this so-
called health tax does not give
him full medical coverage.
Local business experts join the
Nationalist in declaring that this is
a bad deal!. Drs Bethel and
Gomez 'admit that the full cost is
not known. So expect to be forced
to shell our more money labelled
as a Health Tax very soon after it
is put into effect.
The head of the 'Blue Ribbon
Commission' states that time is
needed to build additional hos-
pital and health care facilities, and
to find human resources, nurses,
etc. Read this as we will soon bor-
row millions to provide this. The
national debt will skyrocket out of
control! This is nothing more than
a trial balloon.
Already they are backing off
under the guise of more talks
being needed. Have you ever
seen so much empty talking? But
there was not consultation when
the Cuban doctors were hustled
in here. Promises to build a first
class hospital have been around
since 1968, the year I went to
medical school fresh out of the
old Government High School.
Show me where it is! No govern-
ment post independence govern-
ment, PLP or FNM has thought
enough of the voters to provide a
first class hospital.
With our debt to GDP already
over the safe limit, with the need
for a new airport, and with all
kinds of money being wasted on
infrastructure for often mythical
foreign investors this is no time to
be making vain promises. Let the
private sector combine with the
large Baptist community and pro-
duce a Baptist Hospital like they
do in the USA.
Fifty million will not produce a
first class Princess Margaret style
hospital. It will take more like a
hundred and fifty million to pro-
duce a fully equipped hospital
needed to provide comprehen-


sive care. Remember this tax will
force thousands to cancel their
existing health policy which paid
for USA health care. Fifty mil-
lion will only provide the foun-
dation and unplastered walls! It is
a fact that hospitals are among
the most expensive buildings to
build. Fifty million would have
done it twenty five years ago. If
they go ahead with this folly you
will see that the Nationalist was
right as regards the true cost of a
hospital.
What is really remarkable is
the major contradictions in gov-
ernment actions. We are spending
millions of dollars on providing
infrastructure for investors who
in many cases never begin the
projects. This is taxpayer money.
But government gives away the
asset through twenty-five years
duty exemptions, Crown land,
etc., to investors. But if a doctor
purchases a state-of-the-art piece
of medical equipment to provide
needed services to Bahamians, he
must pay 100 per cent duty on it!
He gets no tax break even to help
you! Our taxes make it possible
for foreign investors to get tax
breaks, but we get no tax conces-
sions at all. Why can't the bal-
ance be struck more in our
favour?
Why have we accepted dis-
crimination against local investors
who get no concessions worth
anything? Why should we accept
their argument concerning this
Trojan horse tax, to fix the health
system. Is this what it really
needs, a tax from us which is
based on income and likely to
increase each year after it starts?
A tax which punishes the small
entrepreneur they talk about
helping? Why is National Insur-
ance predicted to run dry in less
than twenty years? Was the mon-
ey not supposed to be invested? Is
it being given away? Surely this
needs investigation by an inde-
pendent commission to see if the
stewardship is being carried out
properly.
The Nationalist is of the view
that the government is afraid to
say the word Income Tax. So they
are trying to fool us by calling it a
Health Tax. It is still a version of
Income Tax, however, you spin
it. But we will not fall for this
trick. It is time to vote out this
crew who are indecisive to the
point of paralysis. When they do
act it is some half-baked tax idea!
The nationalist advises the PM
to shuffle this half baked tax
scam back into the trash heap
where it belongs. Just let it die!
The old Hubiggity-led FNM


government was just as bad,
remember their so-called "catah
strophic insurance" tax idea. This
is why there is silence on this now,
Before the so-called "wave" it
would have been possible to
speak out in the FNM against this
tax. But now that the "old guard"
are back in the saddle the silence
is deafening. Remember how
Hubiggity and his so-called econ=,
omists were willing to give away.,
even more of the country to for,-
eign investors? They abolished,
the immovable properties act arqd
now we are rapidly being shut out
of our own beach front land.,
Remember Hubiggity's econb-0
mists were keen to sign over all
our decision making to so-called
leaders of third world countries,
south of us. Those leaders can-,
not even keep their own coun-
tries out of structural adjustment
by the IMF. New FNM leader-,
ship would have at least allowed a
new policy to be produced. o6
much for what could have been!
The Nationalist hopes that th.'
political leaders have learned
their lessons and are no longer
anxious to thrust us ill prepared,
with a F+ average of school
leavers, into the global market;Qf
devil take the hindmost without a
period of proper preparation! ,
PM Christie if you want to
introduce Income Tax, be a man
and say so boldly. A good talker
like you should be able tfi
advance a reasonable argument
for it. '
All your talk of a Health. Tax
will do is alarm the financial m:ar;
kets. The insurance based funds
will get skittish, and there willbe
a knock-on effect. Insurance say-
ings as a reserve and int estmepit
engine will flee! Barbados w.as
bailed out of its debt crisis and
devaluation avoided under the
Sandiford regimen by the Barba-
dos insurance industry!
The Nationalist would wish to
see the insuranceindustry pre-
served.
My brothers and sisters, this
Health Tax, this government
hand in your %allet, is a form bf
income tax, call it % hat you will. If
you do not speak strongly against
this you will be in for major finan-
cial woes. There is a limit to wage
increases. Note that the PLP go)
all the union agreements locked
in before they declared this tax
So you will be stuck with less take
home pay for years! ,
The Nationalist says that
Income Tax by any name is still
Income Tax. What do you think?

Call for Clifton

area history

to be recorded


ACTING Governor-
General Paul Adderley
called for the history of
the Clifton area to be
recorded before it is
lost.
Speaking to delegates
at the first Clifton Her-
itage Authority plan-
ning meeting on Thurs-
day, Mr Adderley said
it would be a tragedy if
the property is devel-
oped without a proper
history being written.
"I think you should
not ignore, by any
means, that the history
of the Bahamas almost
can't be written with-
dut a history of
Clifton," he said.
'"'My interest in
Clifton is historical. My
view of it is the past.
You are riot supposed
to:be mired in the past
except for the fact that
it will be a tragedy that
if'the development of
tiiis property proceeds,
somebody somewhere
along the way does not
W,{ite a history which
will be a very impor-
tant document which
anybody who deals
ivith Clifton can deal
~ith."
'Mr Adderley said
there is no other piece
f. land in New Provi-
dence where virtually
two hundred years of
documentary title has
been complied, with
only one document
missing. .
-aMr Adderley said he
was pleased to see that
the authority has
stopped calling the area
Clifton Cay.
He said getting the
name right is the first
step in properly record-
ing the history of the
former slave planta-
tion.

Airline confident of Bahamians'



safety at Trinidad's Carnival


travelling to Carnival from New Provi-
dence.
The airline's deputy general manager
Van Diah told The Tribune yesterday
that while management is monitoring the
security concerns, it is confident that
Bahamians will be safe.

Assured

He said that he has spoken with his
ground handlers, who have assured him
that Trinidad has plans to step up securi-
ty by increasing police presence even to
the point of recruiting retired police offi-
cers to help manage crowds.


Mr Diah added that from what he
understands, most of the warnings focus
on the smaller island of.Tobago, which is
usually frequented by European and Eng-
lish travellers.
Mr Diah noted that charter flights for
Carnival remain a good source of income
for the airline.
He explained that the flight leaving
Nassau on February 22 has only 15 seats
still available and that a second charter
which leaves on February 24 is full.
Mr Diah added that in addition to the
tickets purchased in the Bahamas, a num-
ber of persons from Florida are travelling
to Nassau to take advantage of the lower
fares.


FINANCIAL Services and
Investments Minister Allyson
Maynard-Gibson said yesterday
that she is hopeful about the
future of the Bahamas Financial
Services Industry citing the
implementation of another five-
year strategic plan and increased
investment benefits for Bahami-
ans.
Speaking at the Rotary Club
of East Nassau yesterday Minister
Maynard-Gibson said: "By this
time next year I hope that we
shall have already started to
implement the second five-year
strategic plan and have rolled out
our promotions of the 'Bahamas
Brand'. I also hope that the
School of Financial Services at
the College of the Bahamas will
be well on the way in terms of
fundraising and curriculum plan-
ning.
"And I hope that we shall be
able to point to many Bahamians
abroad living and working in
financial institutions on the same
terms and conditions as non-
Bahamians live and work in the
Bahamas".

Benefit
Mrs Maynard-Gibson said that
government has been successful
in ensuring that Bahamian con-
tractors benefit from construction
opportunities in the Bahamas,
and that the Financial Services
industry will continue to work
even more closely with engineers,
architects, planners, interior
designers in an effort to help


them achieve more benefits.
"I also hope to see materialise
the talks that I have already start-
ed with Kerzner to find ways to
support even more light industry
and to commence significant
retail purchases from Bahamian
retailers," the minister said.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson noted
that in 2002, many Bahamians
were sceptical about the future
of financial services.
A major reason for this, she
said, was the result of the "terrible
setbacks the financial sector
received in early 2000 when 11
pieces of legislation were passed
in one month without proper or

"It is a sensitive industry. It is

minister pointed out.
She added that one of the main
reasons the Bahamas has been
regarded by the Financial Times
as a "hot spot" for investment is
the extent of public/private sector
partnership in the country.

increased crime on that island.

instead, the government will
turn around and use the land

THE TRIBUNE


Haiti in





.uman ri


crisis: grave





ahts concerns


T WOULD be very diffi-
Scult for one to overstate
the volatility of the present
political situation in Haiti. In
act, one could quite easily
identify several similarities
between the scenes on the
ground in Haiti with that of
Iraq although the disparity
bet\ een the international
media coverage of these two
global hotspots can be at times
troubling.
*n recent weeks, General
cellar, head of the UN
peacekeeping force MINUS-
AH, was found dead from
apparent suicide. Addition-
y, the international humani-
ian group, Doctors without
Bbrders/M6decins Sans Fron-
tieres (MSF) has reported an
alarming increase of people
needing treatment for violence-
related injuries, including a
gTowing number of gunshot
and knifing victims. In Decem-
h r 2005, MSF treated more
Than 220 gunshot victims at two
facilities St Joseph's trauma
centre in the Turgeau neigh-
lbourhood and Choscal hospital
f Cite Soleil. This included 26
gunshot victims treated at
OGihoscal hospital on December
1i2-27, and was a dramatic
increase from the 147 gunshot
victims treated at both facili-
ties in November 2005. Nearly
.50 percentrof all MSF patients
treated for violence-related
irijuries are women, children,
:or elderly .
As February elections.draw
*closer. the political climate
gro~ s e\ er more charged and
thousands of innocent Haitian
families, not directly connected
to either side of the turbulent
,political dispute, lie in thewake
of disaster. Several of the
major stakeholders in the sta-
bilisation process have been
engulfed in controversy sur-
rounding various incidents that
have resulted in the death of
'ion-combatants. The Haiti
Action Committee has publicly
Criticized the United Nations


for its alleged role in the killing
of civilians in its attempt to
secure the peace. In addition,
supporters of exiled President
Aristide's Lavalas Family par-
ty have been accused of com-
mitting crimes such as kidnap-
ping and murder in cases such
as that of slain journalist
Jacques Courage.
As these reports and many
others continue to demon-
strate, chaos, misery and suf-
fering in Haiti have worsened
steadily since the tumultuous
events of early 2004 culminated
in the departure of democrati-
cally elected President Jean
Bertrand-Aristide into exile in
South Africa.
On January 20,2006, Human
rights lawyers and activists
across the United States of
America launched an intense
effort to prevent American
immigration judges from con-
tinuing deportations of illegal
Haitian immigrants to Haiti at
this time in light of the political
climate present on the ground.
Here in The Bahamas,
Amnesty International has
voiced concerns on more than
one occasion that Haitians
coming here illegally were, in
many cases, not granted access
to the human right of applying
for political asylum. Amnesty
International fully understands
and appreciates the economic,
social and cultural sensitivities


of a small state like The
Bahamas when it comes to the
issue of illegal immigration.
Notwithstanding these con-
cerns, however, it is incumbent
on The Bahamas, to play its
part in ensuring that the human
rights of refugees as set out in
Article 33 of the 1951 UN Con-
vention Relating to the Status
of Refugees are upheld. As a
subscriber to this convention,
The Bahamas is obliged to
ensure that no person is
returned, directly, or indirectly,
to a country where "his life or
freedom would be threatened
on account of his race, religion,
nationality, membership of a
particular social group or polit-
ical opinion."
Implicit in this principle is
the necessity to establish a sat-
isfactory asylum procedure to
identify those who would be at
risk.

he current situation in
Haiti is such that it
would be a grave injustice to
simply label all those fleeing
as economic migrants without
investigating claims of politi-
cal asylum. Ali Besnaci, the
head of mission for the MSF
trauma centre at St Joseph's
Hospital in Port-au-Prince
states that "people are living
in constant fear, and we know
that many injured are either
afraid or prevented from get-
ting the treatment they need.
This is simply unacceptable."
The Bahamas, of course, has
the right to detain all illegal
immigrants while they await
due process. It is also impor-
tant, therefore, that conditions
of detention are of acceptable
standards. In a November 2003
report labelled "Bahamas: For-
gotten Detainees" Amnesty
International raised several
concerns regarding the hous-
ing and treatment of illegal
immigrants at the Carmichael
Road Detention Centre.
Among these concerns was the
treatment of children who at


the time of the report had little
access to recreational or edu-
cational activities. Since the
publishing of the report, how-
ever, it is notable that a chil-
dren's playground has been
erected at the Detention Cen-
tre, a tangible demonstration
of a move towards positive
change in the conditions at that
facility. However, some con-
cerns regarding the detention
of families with children still
remain. Amnesty International
has asked that children not be
detained alongside adults who
are not family members as this
increases chances of abuse.
Additionally, families should


not be separated from one
another and access to basic
needs and healthcare should
be made available, especially
for minors.
When considering the issue
of the human rights of illegal
Haitian migrants to our shores,
it is important that we do so in
the context of the situation in
Haiti. It is also important that
we remember that those being
detained on Carmichael Road
are not prisoners who have
been convicted of crimes. In
fact, in many cases they are
families whose only "crime'" is
to seek a better way of life for
themselves and their children


by fleeing a desperate situa-
tion.
Put simply, as we carry out
the letter of the law we should
be mindful of our own human-
ity and show compassion in
doing so.

erences in this article are post-
ed below and can be visited for
a more in-depth understanding
of the gravity of the current sit-
uation in Haiti.

of what could formerly be
considered a docile, Bahami-
an population.
Thus, I am sympathetic
towards the notion of taxi
drivers refusing to take
young black men as evening
fares from the airport after
the dreadful murder of their
colleague and my friend,
Christoph Brown.

Drivers
According to the January
26 edition of The Tribune,
these black drivers have
decided to racially profile
passengers, after hearing of
the horrific disclosures sur-
rounding Chris's murder last
week, when his taxi cab and
badly burnt body was found
off a bush road by family
members.
Chris's slaying has made
taxi drivers more aware of
the safety issues posed when
working a job that has no
real security mechanisms and
that makes them a soft target
to callous criminals.
In the Bahamas, many taxi
drivers drive open cab vehi-
cles, where a culprit has easy
access to them,to rob and
kill them during extremely
vulnerable situations, espe-


cially during their travels
through "jook-jook" corners
and dark, dirt roads.
This week I addressed the
gruesome murder of my bud-
dy during a speech to some
students. Following this, a
student told me that prior to
Christoph's murder, his uncle
- a taxi driver carried a
shotgun, but now he has fur-
ther armed himself with
Mace, a machete and a rear
view mirror video camera.
Maybe this was going a bit
far, but obviously this
gentleman has decided
that he is not taking any
chances!
With all of the police's
attention now. being diverted
to the recapture of Corey
Hepburn, Chris's murder is
being seemingly set aside as
a priority.
His family has expressed
to me their disappointment
as to appears to be the
police's lackadaisical
response to reports of Chris's
disappearance and articulat-
ed fears that his smurderer/s
may get away scot free.
Several months, 20-year-
old Romanda Curtis was
found murdered behind the
Love 97 building and today
her murder remains
unsolved. For Chris's fami-


ly, closure can only bei

conviction and imprisonment
of the perpetrators thaf
snuffed out the life of one of
the most industrious, mild-
mannered persons I've ever.
met. Chris was one way alt
the time always greeting
you with a smile.
Yes, it is sad that we as a
nation must resort to public'
cized racial profiling to
ensure our safety, but what
has to be done must be done.
There is a violent under
current that is now plaguing
.our society and is beginning
to raise its ugly head
from our school grounds td
our hospitals to our church-
es.

Hospitals
People no longer respect"
the sanctity of hospitals and
churches as murders, fights
and armed robberies are
even occurring in these once
sacrosanct places.
We must seriously exam-,
ine the direction of our soci-
ety and determine whether
or not recent upsurges in
crime are a result of illegal
immigration from more hos-
tile environments, isolating
the children of poor illegal
immigrants to the point oi
being stateless (and there
fore seeing their frustrations
expressed through criminal
acts)'or just a developing
trend in the Bahamas that is
evolving as development
occurs and our population
expands to the point that we
will become more and more
like Jamaica and Trinidad."'

the last conversation supposedly
between the two men was only
30 seconds long and was at 10.54
am on June 22, 2002. This call,
he said, was made from the cell
phone of murder accused Ricardo
Miller.
Ryan Wells, alias "Pretty Boy",
and the man Ricardo Miller iden-

ong of Mario Miller's attackers,
also took the witness stand yes-

Wells said that in June, 2002 he
did not have a steady job, but
worked at the Sweet Scent car
wash on Mackay Street. Wells yes-

ers Ryan and Ricardo Miller and
had only seen them "once or
twice", one occasion being at CID.
There, he said, he saw both broth-
ers and police questioned him
about Mario Miller's murder, but
heitold them he knew nothing.
Wells told the court yesterday that
hedid not go to Super Value food
store-on Winton on the day Mario
Miller was found dead, had no
involvement in his death and knew
noth:about a drug deal.
S We11 admitted in cross-exami-

with Mario Miller's murder, but

the charges, .
AnwariSeymour, the man iden-

he said, had been directly involved
in Mano Miller's death, also told

Seymour also denied knowing

The terms and conditions for
occupancy of the units were con-
tained in a sale occupancy agree-
ment which was subsequently signed
by each occupant on June 10.
The agreement stated that it was
required of residents to pay the bal-

ing on the coattails of the FNM; benefiting from the goodwill
which we, the FNM, created nationally and internationally, getting
our good name back; restoring confidence in our economy and cre-
ating a framework for expansion in the tourism and financial ser-
vices sectors.
"I hear them talking about this policy they seek to own as theirs
which provides for the development of 'anchor' properties on each
of the Family Islands," he said.
Mr Ingraham said government speaks as if a policy to promote
Family Island resort development had not been conceived, devel-
oped and planned by those who preceded them in office.
"In government they've been busy with committees, commissions
and consultants. They've been trying to figure out what to do
and how to do it. Four years into their single term in office they con-
tinued to come up woefully short," Mr Ingraham said.
As for the FNM loss in Long Island in the 2002 election, Mr
Ingraham said it pained him that dissension "in the family divided
us against ourselves in 2002 not only here in Long Island but also
elsewhere across our islands; we so painfully learned 'divided we
fall'.
"But that is behind us now. We have settled our differences and
buried our dissent. I am happy to be able to say without equivo-
cation that we in the FNM are united; united by a single purpose:
to wrest the reigns of government from the self-centred and self-
interested people now in control of our country," Mr Ingraham said.
The FNM leader said that FNMs are united in their quest to
return the control and direction of government to a caring FNM
whose only interest is to make life better for all the Bahamian
people.
"Together we will build a better and brighter future for Long
Island and The Bahamas," he said.
Mr Ingraham said that it is clear that many people were hood-
winked in 2002 with those chants of "help and hope."


MINISTER of Foreign Affairs and the Public Service Fred
Mitchell paid a courtesy call on officials at the State Bank of India

MIAMI HERALD SPORTS


The Angels pult he


0 BOXING
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
"ITS my time now and I
am ready," said former
super middleweight cham-
pion Kenny Minus this
week, as he issued a chal-
lenge to Jermain 'Choo-
Choo' Mackey, the current
title holder.
Minus warned Mackey to
cherish the title because,
when the final bell rings, all
he will have is memories of
a title which was once his.
The 38-year-old, said this
season is the best time for
him to make a comeback
and, after watching Mackey
in the ring and at practice,
he is confident the title will
be his.
He said: "It's like taking
candy from a baby. I know
a lot of people will be ask-
ing why I want to make my
return to the ring and to be
in such a big fight, but I
have one thing to say to
them, I wanted this for a
long time and I do believe
that the time has come for
a true champion to wear
the belt.
"I know I haven't been
in the ring for about three
years, but the way I feel
right now I know Choo-
Choo can't beat me. The
fellow who he got the belt
from, Marvin Smith, he got
the belt from me and I will
say he got it by luck. He
was very lucky-when he- -
won the belt from me.
"Now that I am back in
the ring, I think I can take
him and now that I am
back I know that I can
retain my title. It is just a
matter of time.
"I am in pretty good
shape, I know what I have
to do before the fight and I
am willing to work towards
it. Retaining the title is my
biggest priority now."
When the dates were
sealed for Mackey and
Marvin Smith's fight,
Minus was in Mackey's cor-
ner, backing the challenger.
He also appeared at all the
press conferences, the
weigh-in and at the fight,
coaching Mackey for the
win.
The night Mackey
defeated Smith, in the 12th
round bout, Minus was the
one to hoist Mackey on
shoulders for the victory
walk.
He said: "I know it might
seem strange, and people
might think that we had a
falling out, but we didn't. I
just think I can take him.
"I am stronger than he is
and proved that on the
punching bags the other
day in practice.
"I know practice don't
count compared to the
actual fight, but I out-
punch him.
"All Choo-Choo has
over me is youth, and,
when it all boils down, I am
the stronger man who will
be able to go the distance
and punch my way out in
the final round."
It might appear that the
Minus' connection with
Mackey has been broken,
but it hasn't. Mackey is
being coached by Ray
Minus Jr, the brother of
challenger Kenny Minus.
On fight night, Ray
Minus Jr will be in Mack-
ey's corner, while his dad,
Ray Minus Sr, will be
coaching the brother Ken-
ny Minus.
According to Ray Minus
Sr, the true coaching skills
will be revealed that night.
But before Minus can
jump into the ring with
Mackey, he will have to
prove himself.
Minus will step into the
ring on March 10th, a
match he is calling a warm-
up, before getting a shot at
Mackey.


* BASKETBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
IT WAS payback time for
the Cleaning Centre Angels.
After losing their only game
to last year's runners-up, the
Johnson's Lady Truckers, in
their second encounter of the
year, the three-time defend-
ing champions Angels got
revenge with a 79-65 rout on
Thursday night at the DW
Davis Gym.
The victory kept the Angels


out front in the New Provi-
dence Women's Basketball
Association with a 10-1 win-
loss record, while the loss
dropped the Lady Truckers to
third place at 6-4.
The rookie Sunshine Auto
Lady Cheetahs claimed sole
possession of second place
after they beat the Junior All-
Stars 79-23 in the opening
game of Thursday's double
header.
While the Lady Cheetahs
pounced all over the Jr. All-
Stars from start to finish, it


wasn't until the fourth quarter
that the Lady Angels took
control of their closely con-
tested game against the Lady
Truckers.

Plan
Angels' first-year coach
Sharon 'the General' Storr
said their game plan was to
slow down the Lady Truckers
and play them in a half-court
game it worked to perfec-
tion.


Truckers


"They were very difficult for
us to match-up because they
have an inside and outside
presence. They give us a lot
of trouble," Storr reflected.
"But we looked forward to,
playing them because, don't
forget, they were.the ones who'
gave us our only loss."
The Angels used a 23-12
rout behind the 1-2 punch
from Suzette McKenzie and
Keisha Richardson, as they
pulled away from a 56-53
deficit at the end of the third
period to secure the win.


Highlights from this week's basketball
----- .^ate~"I~;I1;'~;~:``~"~Lugi M^,. i,,TY"^-i~ir~~i ill -Ci ii r II Il~ ~l -I


Playing the entire game,
McKenzie exploded for a
game high 27 points with 10
rebounds, two assists and two
steals. Richardson did 38 min-
utes, scoring 15 points with six
rebounds and four steals.
Roberta Quant also played
the full 40 minutes, contribut-
ing 12 with 10 rebounds and
Sharell Cash was limited to 12
points and seven rebounds.
Chrysantha Strachan helped
out with seven.points in 11
minutes.
The Angels held Lady
Truckers' league-leading scor-
er Shantelle Rolle to just six
points in 33 minutes. While
she didn't get it done offen-
sively, Rolle pulled down sev-
en rebounds and dashed out
five passes.
Latoya Rolle, however, led
the charge with 20 points and
eight rebounds in 26 minutes.
Glenda Gilcud played the
entire game as well, scoring
13 points, six assists, three
rebounds and three steals.
In playing the entire game,
Antoinette Knowles had 10
points, 10 rebounds, four
steals and three assists in the
Lady Truckers' loss. Roshan-
da Robinson and Janice
Williams had eight apiece.
Lady Truckers' coach Jean
Minus said it was no way near
the performance they are
capable of producing.
"We werevery, very flat
tonight," Minus noted. "The
last game we played them, we
beat them by a lot of points.
Tonight, they were more hun-
gry for the win. They had the
fire in their eyes. We didn't
play with any intensity. We
were not prepared for this
game."
Except for Latoya Rolle,
:'Whi was relentless on the
boards, pulling down some
key rebounds and going back
up with the lay-up, the Lady
Truckers were outplayed in
the paint and they couldn't
stop the Lady Angels' potent
offensive attack.

Regroup
Coach Minus said they will
have to regroup and hope to
bounce back tonight when
they take on the Lady Chee-
tahs.
Lady Cheetahs 79, Jr. All-
Stars 23: Sunshine Auto got a
good tune-up with a resound-
ing victory over the Jr. All-
Stars.
They opened a 26-10 first
quarter spurt and extended it
to 44-15 at the half and were
never really challenged as they'
maintained their second place
position.
The Lady Cheetahs had
three players in double figures
with Linda Pierre scoring a
game high 24 points with T
rebounds in 30 minutes.
Brooke Smith played 31 min-
utes, scoring 13 with seven
rebounds, three assists end
two steals and Sheniqc"e
Simms, who played 30 min-
utes, added 13 points with six
assists and steals and five
rebounds.
Delarene Ferguson helped
out with nine points and six
rebounds; Lucinda Sylvain
had six points, four steals and
three assists and Samantha
Cox and Tee Hanna both
scored six.
For the Jr. All-Stars, Dea
dra Williams led the way with
10 points. Tiffany Wildgoose
scored five and Keva Barr-
added four.
The Jr. All-Stars were out-
rebounded 57-24 by the Lady
Cheetahs in one of the nm st
defying stats.
