Situation could hit
tourism and airlifts
to the Bahamas
U By KARIN HERIG and

Tribune Staff Reporters
S A JET fuel shortage at Nas-,
- sau nternalional Airport is set
to cause disruptions to tourism
and airlifts to the Bahamas for
the second time in six months...
port is once again experiencing
a shortage of fuel forcing air-
lines to take on more in the
United States, resulting in few-
er passengers and cargo due
to weight restrictions.
According to reports by air-
line officials in the Bahamas,
all carriers were informed that
there would be a three-week
cut-back on fuel supplies at the
airport until May 8 when a new
shipment of fuel was expect-
An official from a major air-
line told The Tribune yester-
day that an e-mail from their
fuel supplier, Chevron/Texa-
co, indicated that only 50 per
cent of their usual monthly
supply would be made avail-
able for the next 20 days.
"This is not the first time
that a fuel crisis was seen at
NIA. This seems to be a recur-
rent problem and the first time
that the airlines were alerted
that a problem would be here
for the next three weeks," he
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, American Airlines
General manager and president
of the Airline Operators Com-
mittee (AOC) Ricky Dean
said that his airline is coping
with the situation by tapping
into their Miami station for
"Of course this means a
reduced load for us, less pas-
sengers, less baggage. Luckily
for us we fly in here so fre-
quently that if a passenger
doesn't make it on to one flight
there is always the next one,"
However, he said that this
second interruption of fuel
supply is "significantly ham-
Mr Dean also said that he
had not been informed of the
reason why fuel is in short sup-
ply at NIA.
"The last time something
similar happened was in
December 2005. The fact is
that this is something we hope
to never happen again, that's
why we have to..investigate
this. We will be having a meet-
ing to determine what the
cause of this is so it will never
happen again," he said.
One airline official said he
fears that these incidents of
fuel shortage will impact neg-
atively on the Bahamas'
"They are jeopardising
tourism. The fact is at a ntie
when major oil companies are
making huge profits, in is a
shame that they are holding
tourism ho.t.ige in th-

where else in the world. jn
airline official said.

December 2005 shortage, he
had not yet heard about the

Ministry of Tourism officuls

THE Bahamas is seeking to aggressively
amend its laws to be able to prosecute view-
ers of child pornography after disturbing sta-
tistics were revealed at a recent Urban
According to police officials, one particular
clipping depicting an 8-year-old girl being
held down by a woman, and sexually violated
with "toys" by a man was viewed 5,000 times
in one hour from computers in the Bahamas.
Supt Keith Bell of the Urban Renewal Pro-
ject said that there is no way to know the
true number of how many people have
viewed such "disturbing' images. However he
said it does not bode well for what is touted to
be a "Christian '**~1on" if one clipping was
viewed 5,000 times in only an hour.
Mr Bell said that there was "no doubt"
that these viewings were made from the
Bahamas, but would not go further to state
how the police had actually gathered this

noon when their Ford Ranger ran off the road. Both men were taken to hospital but police said they appear to be okay.

"This means that there is a market for it.
But from all indications it doesn't appear
that this happened in the Bahamas. The fact
that persons are looking at this kind of thing
on the net, it may very well induce persons to
carry out these acts on children," he said.
Mr Bell said police have had a number of
reports of abuse against children even
infants in the Bahamas before. It'is this
information that police want to bring to the
attention of religious leaders to ensure that
the church plays a leading role to ensure that
morals are upheld in the society, he said.
Taking a legal versus religious approach,
Legal Affairs Minister and Attorney Gener-
al Allyson Maynard-Gibson foreshadowed
that when she meets with the OAS Attor-
ney General, child pornography will be one of
the major issues that will be discussed.
"The whole issue of cyber space crime espe-
cially child pornography is one that all nations
are grappling with. How do we deal with it,

US Ambassador in beach
for Earth Day
* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
SHOCKED by the amount
of garbage on a local beach,
US Ambassador John Rood
spent a major part of Friday in
clean up efforts to commemo-
rate Earth Day 2006.
Mr Rood was joined by his
embassy staff, Americans liv-
ing in Nassau and 18 members

garbage that littered the area.
As he spoke to members of

more than two dozen large
garbage bags with trash, how-
ever there was still large pills of
garbage to be collected.
Among the items collected
were car parts, a dog skull,
liquor bottles, fast food con-
tainers and clothing;
Mr Rood noted that some
Bahamians seem not to-be
environmentally conscious as
they had discarded so much
garbage in the area.
He noted that in his own
country, there had been a "lit-
ter mentality" among many
Americans that required a mas-
sive education and public rela-
tions campaign to reduce it.
That campaign, he said, aggres-
sively started in the 1960's.

A FIRST step to improve
the Bahamas' justice system
was taken yesterday with the
launching of the "swift justice"
At a press conference yes-

Allyson Maynard-Gibson said
that the integrated programme
is designed to strengthen

"The achievement of swift
justice is a team effort and it
requires all of our judicial

together in a seamless fash-
ion," she said.
"The baton of information
must be passed swiftly from

and for society as a

as murder, armed robbery,
rape and other sexual offences,
should be referred directly to

It was also determined, she
said, that weekly meetings
should be held to ensure that
forensic witnesses are proper-

the appropriate time.
The meetings, she
explained, would also allow
for co-ordination and planning
well in advance.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson added
that under the initiative, police
witnesses in each case will be
identified well in advance and
would be kept abreast of the
progress of the case to trial,

Roman collar saves Catholic
archbishop's life in attack
THE ROMAN collar that he has worn for 50
years saved the life of St Lucia's 73-year-old
Catholic arclbi-h. ip last week when a man tried'to

' Archbishop. Kelvin Felix, the longest serving
Catholic archbishop in the English speaking
Caribbean, was attacked at 7.45pm April 13 as he
stood outside the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate
Conception on Peynier Street, Castries, talking
with a parishioner after mass.
According to a report in the Trinidad & Toba-
go Newsday a young man, who had a knife, walked
up to the archbishop and "locked his neck."
"The assailant slashed at Archbishop Felix's
throat, but managed to just cut off the Roman
collar before running away," Newsday reported.
According to witnesses the "man had been lurking
around the Cathedral all Wednesday." The police
said the Roman collar saved the archbishop's life.
Archbishop Felix, although shaken, was not
hurt. He was sent to the hospital in Castries for
examination and later returned to his presbytery.
A 28-year-old auto mechanic from a depressed
suburb of Castries was charged with attempted
murder. The magistrate ordered him to be held

Dr Bernard Nottage named

Partnership against HIV/AIDS
HEALTH Minister Dr Bernard Nottage has been named chairman
of the Pan Caribbean Partnership against HIV/AIDS at an.executive
board meeting in Trinidad and Tobago.
The sixth meeting of the executive board of the Caribbean Com-
munity co-ordinated organisation was held on Tuesday
According to a statement released by the Caricom Secretariat in
Guyana, outgoing chairman Dr Edward Greene, in welcoming Dr Not-
tage, referred to some concerns that faced the partnership.
These included the slow implementation rates of HIV/AIDS projects
both regionally and nationally, the need to ensure greater impact of pro-
grammes at the country level, and harmonisation to optimise use of
In his opening remarks to the two-day meeting of the Regional Co-
ordiniting Mechanism, as the Board is called, Dr Greene said: "no one-
off briefing or encounter with PANCAP (Pan Caribbean Partnership
against HIV/AIDS) could fully capture the nature of this network, its-
evolution, challenges, and commitment of the cross section of partners
that have sustained the network over the past five years."
Dr Greene, who is also Caricom's Assistant Secretary-General for
Human and Social Development, urged the new body to fulfil its role
in managing and strengthening the board's high level of leadership.
Dr Nottage. in accepting the chairmanship of the RCM urged that
major emphasis be placed on refining the Caribbean Regional Strate-
gic Framework (CRSF) to ensure that the accelerated response to the
HIV/AIDS epidemic by PANCAP could be more effective and in par-
ticular that it impacted at the country level. He also highlighted the issue
of harmonisation as critical to the new directions for the partnership and
the sustainability of its programmes.
Major agenda items of this sixth meeting include the universal access
to prevention, the care and treatment process, revision of the CRSF, pro-
posal for harmonising the region's resources and further revision of the
structure of the RCM.
PANCAP, with current membership of approximately 72, compris-

Is Moussaoui crazy or not?
CRAZY OR not crazy? That is the ques-
This is the paraphrase of "Hamlet" that Al
Qaeda terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui shouted
Tuesday during a break in his federal trial in a
Virginia courtroom. The jury has already decid-
ed Moussaoui is eligible for the death penalty
because lies he told the FBI after his arrest kept
the government from learning about the Sept. 11
plot in time to thwart it. Jurors now must decide
whether he should receive the death sentence.
To avoid that, Moussaoui's defence has pre-
sented psychiatrists who have testified that he is
delusional, paranoid, and schizophrenic.
Because he repeatedly said he has no regrets
for his own failed terrorist operation or for the
Sept. 11 attacks, Moussaoui's lawyers have had
a hard time defending him. As the prosecution
has brought out, Moussaoui has confined his
crazy-sounding outbursts to moments when the
judge and jury have left the courtroom. The
prosecution has argued that all of Moussaoui's
relevant actions learning to fly, lying to the
FBI, exclaiming in court that the psychiatrists
were describing his "beautiful terrorist mind" -
demonstrate that he is "a goal-oriented person."
In other words, he is responsible for his actions.
Whether or not the jury decides Moussaoui is
crazy, the issue of sanity raised in his trial ought
to be an occasion to confront an even more dis-
turbing question about the belief system he has
embraced. After all, much of what the defence's
psychiatrists interpret as symptoms of delusion-
al thinking or paranoia in Moussaoui's behaviour
is consistent with the world view of the Islamist
extremists, known as Salafis, who belong to Al
Qaeda and other violent Islamist factions.
They believe that only the Taliban in
Afghanistan have run a properly Muslim gov-
ernment; that all the other secular or insuffi-
ciently Muslim governments in the Islamic world
have to be replaced by Taliban-style regimes;
that America and other Western "crusader"
powers are propping up the despised secular
regimes in the Islamic world; and that it is the
individual obligation of every Muslim to wage
jihad against the far enemy (the crusader pow-
ers), in order to replace the near enemy with a
caliphate based on a purist version of Sharia,
Seen against this cultish background, Mous-
saoui's undisguised glee at the suffering of Sept.
11 victims seems less an individual sign of mad-
ness than a perversity he shares with other cult
members who were absent from the Virginia

century demonstrated with tragic consequences,
collective insanity in political cults is all too
Openness hits Boston archdiocese
THE RELEASE this week of detailed finan-
cial information on the assets of the Archdio-
cese of Boston should send a powerful mes-
sage to loyal parishioners and disaffected
Catholics alike that Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley
has broken with the closed culture that degrad-'
ed the church under his predecessor, Cardinal
Bernard Law. The documents reveal much
about collections, property, and the settlement
resources related to the clergy's sexual abuse
crisis. But the greater revelation comes with
the knowledge that an archdiocese once steeped
in concealment now seems to be trying to lead
the way in transparency.
Many blazed this new trail of openness, and
not all wore priestly garb. The victims of sexu-
al abuse who found the courage to come for-
ward deserve much praise for forcing the church
to look at itself. Lay Catholics, for the most
part, accepted the archdiocese's decision to
close or consolidate dozens of parishes and
parochial schools, but not before demanding the
kind of financial accountability that any prudent
donor needs to ensure that funds are not being
wasted or diverted. The Legislature may have
resoundingly rejected a bill sponsored by state
Senator Marian Walsh that would have
required religious entities to report financial
information as a condition of their tax-exempt
status. But she got the attention of O'Malley,
who realized that it was no longer in the arch-
diocese's interest to keep such information
The cardinal is in the process of selecting a
new leadership team, including a chancellor
and development director. The appointment
of a talented chancellor, who would oversee
the day-to-day financial management of the
archdiocese, takes on even greater significance
because O'Malley's recent elevation to cardinal
will likely require much travel. And an expand-
ed role foi the laity at all levels of the church
should ensure the kind of ongoing account-
ability that inspires generosity and should help
the archdiocese recover from its staggering $46
The information disclosed this week does
not reveal the salaries of the top five individual
executives in the archdiocese, as is required of
secular non-profit groups. But John H.
McCarthy, an O'Malley adviser and CPA, told
Globe reporters and editors yesterday that such
disclosures will be made in the future. Yester-
day, the archdiocese also released disburse-
ments to its top five vendors, a further sign of its
willingness to play by rigorous rules of disclo-
At The Boston Globe yesterday, O'Malley
promised that comprehensive financial disclo-
sures will continue to be made every year. But
there is no guarantee that future leaders of the
archdiocese will honour this spirit of openness.
Still, the red ink on the archdiocese's balance
sheet shows what happens when they don't.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
EVER since I relocated to
Boston, Massachusetts some
three years' ago, I have always
stood up to defend or promote
the Bahamas whenever an
opportunity presents itself. I
have acted as a pseudo-ambas-
sador for tourism, culture, his-
tory, business, Bahamas Infor-
mation Service, public relations,
etc. Whatever the situation and
without hesitation, I have made
it my patriotic duty to act within
the best interest of the Bahamas.
For example, just a couple of
weeks ago, a student from Mass-
achusetts while on Springbreak
in Nassau was stabbed while out-
side a nightclub. This unfortu-
nate incident received much air
play. from the media all over
New England. Needless to say
that I had to spend much time
and effort to reassure some peo-
ple that such attacks against
tourists are as rare as a shark
attack and that of the nearly five
million visitors a year, this kind
of attack against a tourist is
indeed a rarity.
Another area of concern in
terms of negative publicity for
the Bahamas has been the con-
troversial television documen-
tary of a gay and lesbian cruise
onboard the Norwegian Dawn a
couple of years ago that was
hosted by comedian Rosie
O'Donnell. The purpose of this
documentary was to educate the
public on issues involving the
families of gays and lesbians.
Despite such good intentions, the
cruise passengers like other pub-
licised gay cruises to the
Bahamas received a hostile
reception in Nassau by a group
calling themselves "Save The
Bahamas Campaign". Led by
Pastor Mario Moxey, this rebel
group attempted to discourage,
intimidate, harass and even
demand that the constitutional
rights of these individuals be vio-
lated to accommodate their
unreasonable and homophobic
demands. Pastor Moxey indicat-
ed that he had requested of the
producers of this documentary
that they be fair and present all
sides in their story.
One of the things that
Bahamians must understand is
that for the past several decades,
tourism has been the number
one industry of the Bahamas.
For most Bahamians, it is their
bread and butter. Any kind of
negative publicity that will hurt
the tourism industry should
therefore be a concern to all
Bahamians as the damage to the
good image of the Bahamas may
be costly to correct. This is espe-
cially critical today with the
availability of instantaneous
communication technology. Bad
news can travel a lot faster than
it used to in the past. Any poten-
tial for a, situation to adversely
affect the Bahamas must be
nipped in the bud or otherwise
properly handled in terms of
According to the sociologist,
one of the negative side effects of
tourism is the fact that the
lifestyle or culture might be rad-
ically different than that of the
hosting community or country.
But business is business and to
some extent, that community or
country has no choice but to tol-
erate the lifestyle or social values
of their guests&. The perfect
example of this is the Bahamas'
position on gambling. Even
though gambling in the Bahamas
is "illegal" and some in the reli-
gious communities has labelled it
as "sinful", the Bahamas has tak-
en the position for years now
that gambling for the tourist is
to be facilitated and allowed
even though Bahamians are
denied such a privilege in their
By spending tens of millions
of dollars annually, the Ministry
of Tourism has extended an open
invitation to the world at large to
come to the Bahamas. Only a
few exceptions exist that can
deny persons from anywhere in
the world from accepting this
invitation. Undesirables such as
criminals, terrorists, drug deal-
ers, etc, can be denied entry to
the Bahamas. However, for the
vast majority of persons on plan-
et Earth, the Bahamas is sup-
posed to welcome them with
open arms. In addition, once
inside the Bahamas, they are
afforded the full protection of
the Constitution of the Bahamas,
which clearly provides that ALL
PERSONS (not only Bahami-
ans) be protected from discrimi-
nation, have a right to assemble,
have a right to travel, have a
right to the enjoyment of their
property, etc. By inviting per-
sons from all over the world to
the Bahamas along with their
unique customs, or practices, it
doesn't mean that Bahamians
will adopt .these new lifestyles.
Can you imagine Bahamians
adapting or accepting the ways of
In recent months Tourism
Minister Obie Wilchcombe has
now been exploring the possibil-
ity of developing a tourism prod-
uct with China. This is a country
with many traditions and prac-
tices that most Bahamians will
find hard to swallow. For exam-
ple, how would Bahamians react
when their Chinese guest is eat-
ing a dish of fried snake, rodents
or "potcake" dog meat? The
point is, these are some practices
that Bahamians will never per-
sonally get involved with even
in another one thousand years,
but is that sufficient reason to
discourage Chinese tourism?
Ironically, the documentary
made it a point to emphasis the
fact that Pastor Moxey and his
group were exercising their con-
stitutional right of freedom of
expression. If there is a benefit to
all this, this is most certainly it.
Now they should appreciate
what the freedom of expression
means and that they too must
respect the rights of others. That
is, have a right to say whatever
you wish without being intimi-
dated. Even if someone doesn't
like what you-have to say, it
doesn't mean that you do not
have the right to say it.
With a previous gay cruise to
Nassau, Pastor Moxey and his
group viciously harassed and
attempted to deny the cruise vis-
itors their constitutional rights
here in the Bahamas. At that
time I expressed my outrage that
much of this harassment took
place in full view of the police.
Disappointedly, despite such bla-
tant violations of the law, no one
from Pastor Moxey's group was
The documentary did provide
an informative account of issues
affecting gay couples, in particu-
lar as it relates to gay couples
adopting children or giving birth
through surrogates or artificial
insemination. But more impor-
tant is the family atmosphere
that these children may not oth-
erwise have had. Also, there is
no conclusive evidence that chil-
dren who grow up with same sex
parents will develop into homo-
sexuals as seems to be the pre-
vailing thought. The cruise was a
seven-day trip. For the most part,
everyone enjoyed the trip as any
family would. It wasn't until they
pulled into Nassau on day six
when all hell broke loose. By
contrast, the reception received
in Key West was so different.
The town literally laid out the
red carpet for this group and the
visit commemorated as some-
thing that was beneficial to all
of the parties concerned. This is
a far cry as to the Nassau expe-
rience where insults were hurled
in full earshot of little children.
Ridiculous placards that bore
such messages as "animals are
more intelligent then sissies!"
were just silly. This kind of hys-
teria is nothing short of a witch-
hunt. I was so proud to see so
many of my fellow Bahamians
speak out against Pastor Moxey
and his group as not being rep-
resentative of the Bahamian peo-
ple. Like with any other group
of tourists, the straw vendors,
hair braiders, etc, had a field day
as they entertained thigh group.
However in disgust, ith host
of the cruise-Rosie O'Donnell
refused to get off the ship out of
fear that she may have punched
one of the protesters. She indi-
cated that she had been a fre-
quent visitor to The Ocean Club
on Paradise Island where she has
never had,a problem. Why was
this time so different? Was it
because she had brought along
some of her friends? But this is
what Bahamian Tourism had
been asking for decades, wirive
the time of Blind Blake. "Wje
ya go, please come again...aod
don't forget to bring along all of
your friends to li'l Nassau, li'l
Nassau, you will have a wonder-
ful time in Nassau!?"

"We felt very strongly that part
of our efforts as a committee was
to help children, especially those

sonal connection to our amasing
ocean environment," said Mr
Cove. "The students had a great

Island that finds itself in
the front line with refugees
ISOLATED Ragged Island lies in the south-west-
ern Bahamas not far north of both Haiti and Cuba.
As a result, it finds itself on the front line when .
refugees from those two beleaguered lands head
for Nassau and Florida. What.happens when a for-. A" -
eign vessel runs aground, creating an unexpected
confrontation between alien cultures? A Tribune "*" B"
writer describes the impact... |
TWO weeks ago, 96 thirsty and
filthy Haitians scrambled up the
beach near Duncan Town when
their sloop crunched on to off-
Parched and hungry, the
wretched band of men, women
and children had endured inde-
scribable conditions during 12
long days at sea.
As their simple 40-foot craft
laboriously tacked and lurched
towards Nassau from northern
Haiti, patrols spotted only six peo-
ple on deck. The rest were down
below in a hold so dark and foul
that locals were afraid to go near
it when they went out in dinghies
to explore the wreck.
Once ashore, the Haitians were
rounded up by armed police offi-
cers and ushered into a com-
pound. Unlike most captured
refugees, some of these were
noticeably rebellious and hostile.
Reinforcements were called in
"The smell from those people
and their boat was unbelieve-
able," said one islander, "they had
lived on that little vessel for near-
ly two weeks. When they wanted
to use the bathroom, they had
passed a bucket from one to the
other. The stench from that hold
was beyond description.
"Finally, they ran out of water
and tried to come into Ragged
Island. But there is no way of
negotiating our waters with no
-motor in that kind of boat, so they
ran on to the reef. The boat is
still out there, lying on its side."
In Duncan Town, island
women rose to the occasion,
cooking chicken and rice for a
refugee group which outnum-
bered the local population by a
dozen or more.
The island's new reverse osmo-
sis plant was used to fill the police
station holding tank with water
so that they could wash and drink.
"Even from several feet away,
these people smelled bad," said a
Unlike most fleeing Haitians,
this group included a nucleus of
recalcitrant males. They resent-
ed taking orders from police and
began inciting trouble among the
rest of the group.
As a result, the trouble-mak-
ers were herded into a lock-up.
Revolvers were drawn to make
the point that the police meant
business. When the support heli-
copter arrived, peace was
"There is nothing a Haitian-
fears more than a uniform," said
a local who witnessed the scene
from beginning to end, "One guy
who spoke like an American was
giving hard-mouth. At one point,
officers had to push against the
door and bars to keep them inside
"Four or five civilians took
turns with police to keep them
locked up. These people were not
humble at all. Next day the chop-
per came with reinforcements and
Eventually, the Haitians were
taken by islanders in small boats
to a Defence Force ship anchored
off-shore. From there, the
refugees were transferred to Nas-
sau for processing before being
The chances are, though, that
most will be passing Ragged
Island again before too long.
"Didn't I send you back to Haiti a
couple of weeks ago?" an officer
asked one Haitian man. "Yes,"
A woman who had spent time
in Nassau before as a hair-braider
was also making an attempt to
get back. "I like the Bahamas,"
she told islanders. "I will try

in the front line when refugees from Haiti and Cuba head for Nassau and Florida.
"They were not scared until the
revolvers were produced. They
seemed well-versed in what they
were doing," said the islander.
"But I tell you, man, these
boats coming in cause a lot of
stress down here. It was a whole
wasted day. We do what we can
to help. The women arranged
meals of grits and then, when the
time came, we marched them
down to the landing and put them
on some boats.

they were put aboard. We fed
them well. We don't discriminate
Ragged Island's place on the
map virtually guarantees incur-
sions of this kind from time to
time. Over the last dozen years
or so there have been ten or 12
landings, some involving Cubans.
Usually, the Haitians are forced
ashore by weather while heading
north.'"No-one actually comes to
Ragged Island intentionally
because there is nothing here,"
said the islander.
"There is no use trying to
escape into the bush here. There's
no well water and no coconuts on
the trees because we've taken
them all," he added.
Apart from wild:go:ts and -,
sheep, which locals hunt from
time to time, there is no means of
sustenance on Ragged Island, and
no hiding place because it is far
Generally, sloops give Ragged
Island and its accompanying cays
a wide berth because treacherous
reefs pose a constant threat.
In the early 1990s, one ran
aground and overturned, spilling
90 people into the sea. Most
drowned, their bodies laid out on
nearby Salt Cay.
"When they come ashore here,
it is usually because they have
gone off-course," said the
Even so, Ragged Island finds
itself reluctantly drawn into the
political affairs of other lands.
Poverty in Haiti and repression
in Cuba fuel the exodus.
"The Cubans come here, too,
but they are milder and meeker
people," said the islander. "Some-
times, Haitians can be volatile."
With such a small population,
and therefore no real voting pow-
er, Ragged Island has always felt
itself to be the cinderella isle of
Several times in recent years,
locals have warned of the dan-

amenities are so basic.

While Haitian landings create a
diversion from the simple tasks
of daily life, they are not wel-
comed by Ragged Island's sim-

Wetlands are not wastelands
M MONTH HI ;1
SWetlands are one of the five coastal
zones of the Bahamas. They play a
vital role in our island environment.
WHAT if there were no wet-
lands? Without them the
Bahamas would be subject to
much greater damage from
storms and hurricanes, there
would be fewer fish to catch and
eat, and fewer beaches for tourists
to visit. Inland flooding from
storms would be more severe and
our water more polluted. With-
out wetlands there would be no
habitat for herons, egrets, and
waterfowl (ducks) and many oth-
er plants and animals that share
our island home.
All of the major cities of the
Caribbean (eg Havana, Port-au-
Prince, Santo Domingo,
SKingston, Nassau and San Juan)
and indeed most of the great
cities of the world were built on
S wetlands. This did not happen by
chance, nor was it a mistake.
The wetlands formed by great
rivers such as the Tigris and
Euphrates of the Middle East, the
Niger and Nile of Africa and the
Indus and Mekong of Asia, nur-
tured the greatest human civi-
S They provided drinking water,
fish, building materials, fuel, pas-
S ture land and transportation. Reg-.
ular flooding maintained the fer-
tility of agricultural lands. In
S many places, the towns have
expanded into great cities. Only
occasional floods remind their
S inhabitants that they are now liv-
i ing on land stolen from wetlands.
* ~ Today wetlands are still very
*' important to the Bahamian peo-
* r ple. Some of the ways people and
.' eco-systems depend on wetlands
Share described below. Wetlands
are in need of our protection not
just as habitat for wildlife, but
also to guarantee the health,
wealth and welfare of the local
N FISH AND SEAFOOD
Bahamians and our visitors like
fish and seafood. Some tourists
come to -ca liih jnd others to
-catch them Supplying fish'and
supporting the recreational fish-
ing industry is a major source of
income for coastal settlements
throughout the Bahamas.
Most of the fish, lobsters,
conch, and crabs that are har-
vested and sold in our markets
have spent at least part of their
lives in a wetland. Many species
of fish, including groupers, jacks
and snappers spawn at sea on the
reefs at the drop-off, or in the sea
Their eggs and young are
washed into the mangroves where
they flourish on the abundant
food supplies from the richly pro-
Shallow waters and complex
root systems protect the young
fish from predators and storms.
As they mature, they venture out
to feed on the sea grass beds and
coral reefs that are usually found
beside wetlands. In this way a
functional wetland can supply fish
fry to reefs for many kilometres
down stream. Destroying even a
small wetland can decimate fish
stocks over a large area.
* NON-WOOD PRODUCTS
Wetlands produce many
important non-timber products.
Most of them are produced on
such a small scale that their
importance is rarely recognized.
SSome examples include man-
grove leaves which are harvest-
ed for their medicinal value, out-
standingly high quality honey pro-
duced by hives placed among
black mangrove trees, shoots of
royal palms harvested and eaten
as "Hearts of Palm" a delicacy
and orchids harvested for horti-
Bahamian Wetlands abound
with life. They may have fewer
endemic species than the rainfor-
est but their wildlife is rich and
varied and of immense ecologi-
cal and economic importance.
Shallow water, warm condi-
tions and an abundance of nutri-
ents and water contribute to high
primary production. Much of this
production is available as food
for plants and animals.
It provides a basis for food
. chains that support populations
of migrant birds (some over win-
ter in the Bahamas, others use it
as a staging post for longer jour-
neys) and endangered species
such as manatees, West Indian
Whistling Ducks and Sea Tur-
'How is wildlife utilised?'
Although eco-tourism and nature
tourism are increasingly popular
worldwide, bringing tourists to
see wetlands is a relatively new
idea for our region. Learning
from the Everglades National
Park in Florida, which is visited
by almost one million people a
year the Bahamas National
Trust is working to provide infra-
structure at Harrold and Wilsons
Ponds National Park in New
Providence and at The Inagua
National Park, which is home to
.,n- .-.f the i i e'tL brc din;I.
., "i.. of FI.i.ring:, ind i il rg
populations of herons, egrets and
numerous shore birds.
Wetland tours generate rev-
enue from entrance fees, trans-
portation and payment for guides.
They attract people to the area
and generate business for hotels,
taxi operators, supermarkets, fish
vendors, craftsmen and restau-
Beautiful landscapes also
attract scientific and educational
studies, as well as people inter-
ested in making films and docu-
M WATER SUPPLY
Water is essential for human
life.. Wetlands are important for
maintenance of water supplies.
They catch and store water,
recharge aquifers and protect
coastal aquifers from salt water.
Historically, many salt ponds
in the Caribbean were used to
produce salt. This was done by
evaporation in a series of shallow
ponds or pans, each with a slight-
ly different salinity. Salt is still
produced in this way in some
Morton Salt in Inagua pro-
duces salt by solar evaporation in
the cast flat saltpans that traverse
the Inagua landscape. The
process takes two years for sea-
water to be circulated from pan to
pan. In time, algae, fertilised by
flamingo droppings, grow in the
water and darken it. And the
flamingos feed on the shrimp
until the salt is ready for harvest-
This is a wonderful example
of how private enterprise and
Mother Nature can join forces.
Morton assists the Bahamas
National Trust manager of this
national park and wetland of
international importance by keep-
ing the dike roads passable and
other infrastructure in good con-
Wetlands are important for
biological diversity or biodiversi-
ty the richness of all living
things. Overall it appears that
higher biodiversity makes for a
more stable and productive eco-
Coastal wetlands in the
Caribbean are among the most
productive eco-systems in the

per cent of the Earth's surface,
yet they account for 24 per cent of

Pelican Point Coconut
festival is on a roll
THE Pelican Point Coconut
Festival is fast becoming a bea-
con for the promotion of the
Bahamian identity both at
home and abroad, according to
Tourism Minister Obie Wilch-
The festival, which started
out as a small affair attended
mainly by Bahamians, this year
attracted thousands with num-
bers greatly augmented
through international advertis-
ing by the Bahamas Ministry
Speaking in East End, Grand
Bahama on Easter Monday as
he officially opened the eighth
annual festival, Mr Wilch-
combe pointed out that it has
become an event that not only
impresses visitors, but also
reminds Bahamians every-
where about "who we are,
where we are, where we come
from, and where we are going."
Mr Wilchcombe said Pelican
Point residents are among the
proudest of Bahamians, and
take pride in using the coconut
to make a difference at the fes-
tival, as they try to make a liv-
ing and improve the lot of
those around them.
"When we think about
coconuts," he continued, "it is
surprising that you will find the
coconut is being used in cui-
sine, and the only other place
which I think does this is South
"There was a time in the
Bahamas when we didn't have
Bahamian chefs; there was a
time in the Bahamas, not so
long ago, when all our chefs
-had to come from abroad
whether from Europe, United
States or elsewhere; and now
we have many young Bahami-
ans who have made it a pro-
fession and are doing extreme-
ly well; and many have come
from New Pro% idence for this
Mr Wilchcoribe then recog-
nised some of the outstanding
Bahamians Chefs from New
Providence who travelled to
Pelican Point for the cooking
competition segment of the fes-
tival, and thanked Julia Burn-
side from the Ministry of
Tourism for her efforts in
organising the first annual
Coconut Culinary Classic.
"And, those of you who are
visitors, let me tell you, that if
you travel throughout the
Bahamas from Inagua to Birni-
ni you will find the best people
anywhere in the world. We
open our doors and invite you
to be a part of it and to enjoy
what God has given us.
"So we thank you for being
part of this celebration and this
outstanding activity. Today; is
your day to have a good time.
It is your day to enjoy coconut
meals, and gin and coconut
water. So enjoy your day, cele-
brate who yob are and never
be ashamed," he said.

were started three weeks ago.
Wanting to know the status
of functioning equipment at the
facility, Magistrate Virgill was
forced into a brief exchange,
with Cleare when he began
fumbling for an appropriate
Eventually, Cleare explained
to the Magistrate why he was
reluctant to offer up the infor-
mation in an open court, and
she acknowledged his concerns.
But continuing firmly, she said,
"Do not stand and say you will
not answer. I am asking the
question to see if you need
more financial help."
"Funds are now available, but
it still will not complete it,"
replied the director.
"That is what I wanted to
know," said Magistrate Virgill,
"if it (funds) was adequate."
"It is not adequate," Cleare
said before leaving the stand.
Testifying some time after
Cleare, Defence Force Officer
Mark Knowles also spoke of
being in possession of nonfunc-
.tioning equipment, as he
recounted his version of events
on the morning of January 17th.
Shortly after 4.10am the offi-
cer said he heard the siren go
off, and with two other com-
mando officers on duty that
night, he went to the back of
maximum security where he
met a prison officer who told
him four prisoners went over
Unable to get over the fence,
the officer said he eventually
got in his car and drove onto
Fox.Hill Road. Instead of pro-
ceeding to Yamacraw Road, he
turned right and went down Joe
Farrington Road to ensure that
no prisoners had got out of the
The marine officer said he
returned to the Yamacraw area
just in time to see the three pris-
owners on the bus and the buses
being prepared to return to the
He followed the bus in a con-
voy back to the prison, but by
the time he parked his car and
walked into the prison, prison-
ers Bowe and Parcoi were
already being taken into the
When asked if he had a radio
for communication on that
night, the officer informed the
court that he did, but said it was
"Why was it dead?" asked
"I wish I could answer that
ma'am," was Knowles'
He said he complained about
the radio going dead on several
occasions, but was told that the
only time the radios could be
charged was between 5 and
10pm, after the prisoners were
brought in from exercise. This,
he continued, was not sufficient
time to fully charge the radios.
Initially when he goes to
work and gets the radio,
Knowles said it is working. But
through the night, he contin-
ued, it goes out.
That night, Knowles said he
did not know he had a dead
radio until later that morning.
Magistrate Virgill's question-
ing once again turned to the
marine officer's activities on Joe
Farrington and Yamacraw
In her questioning, Magis-
trate Virgill wanted to know
who or what the marine officer
was looking for when he went
to Joe Farrington Road.
"Did you have a recog-
nizance?" asked the Magistrate.
"No," replied the Knowles.
"Did officers tell you how
they (prisoners) were dress?"
"No," he said.
Later in the questioning, the
Magistrate inquired of Knowles:
"What were you hoping to find
in the dark (of Joe Farrington,
Road)? Did you have binocu-
lars or night vision glasses?"
"No ma'am," the Marine said
before answering additional
questions and leaving the stand.
In addition to Cleare and
Knowles' testimony, the court
also heard from inmates Aaron
Jones and Davie Gibson, and
like the others not directly relat-
ed to the breakout, they too
denied knowledge of the
escapees' plans. They, like the
others, remember Officer
Steven Sands and another offi-
cer coming in search of Officer
Jones did offer up, however,
that he believed Ellison Smith
once occupied the cell in which
Trono Davis now resides.
After the January jail break,
it was learned, several hacksaw
blades were discovered in
Davis' cell. In his testimony
before the court on Thursday,
however, Davis denied having
any knowledge of those items.
Neither Jones nor Gibson
was able provide the court with
any specifics about the breakout
or any of the characters
involved, so their testimonies
were kept brief.
The court next awaited the
testimony of Principal Officer
Van Johnson, once it was
announced that he would take
the stand, but after being sworn
in, he was advised by the court
not to testify unless his counsel
The court took a ten minute
break so that attempts could be
made to contact PO Johnson's
Once it was established that
Officer Johnson's attorney was
not available for yesterday's ses-
sion, and owing to the nature
of the charges against him, his
testimony was put off until court
resumes on Monday morning.
Hoping that he would be pre-
sent with counsel, the Magis-
trate informed Johnson that he
would be compelled to testifN
on Monday, i~th or without

trying more than two tons of
cocaine back then."
In 1988, Lehder was
convicted of drug traffick-
ing in a United States fed-
eral court and sentenced
to life in prison, as well as
an additional 135-year
"That was reduced to 55
years after his testimony
on behalf of the govern-
ment in the 1990s against
former Panamanian dicta-
tor Manuel Noriega, who
is also imprisoned in the
United States on a drug
conviction. Before all of
that, Lehder was running
a cocaine empire without
peer," the report said.
It went on to quote
DEA official Kevin Stan-
fill as saying that Lehder
had hoped to build a "per-
manent cocaine traffick-
ing empire" on Norman's
Cay, which would have
included constructing a
runway large enough to
accommodate jumbo jets
loaded with narcotics.
Stanfill said that the
joint task force set up by
Bahamian authorities and
the DEA was formed at
least in part because
of Lehder's bold
"He would use his radio
tower to call directly to
Colombia and tell them it
was OK to bring up a
shipment," Stanfill said.
"He had gunmen. He had
a command and control
centre. He had a huge
deck for parties. He basi-
cally had his own hotel
At a far end of Nor-
man's Cay, the report
said, Lehder had an
oceanfront home named
'The Volcano' because of
its.shape, nearby which he
kept for quick escape in
case his compound vas
ever infilirated by police.
The AP report contin-
"Testimony at Lehder's
trial indicated that he paid
bribes to the Bahamian
government to run his
operation from Norman's
Cay, although the
"Eventually, the DEA
and Bahamians made it
difficult for Lehder to
continue operating from
the island, and he was
finally captured in 1987
after a gun battle in
Colombia to face trial in
the United States.
"Now 56, Lehder is
serving out his prison
term at an undisclosed US
penitentiary," said Ernst
Muller, who was part of
the federal prosecution
team in 1988.
He would likely be in
his 70s before he is eligi-
ble for release.

Postponed softball season
underway next weekend
* By BRENT STUBBS.-...
*- Senior Sports Reporter
THE New Providence Softball
Association will have to wait for
another week before the officials
call "play ball."
The league was originally sched-
uled to get underway tonight at
the Churchill Tener Knowles
National Softball Stadium, but
president Steve 'Garbo' Coakley
said they were forced to postpone
until April 29 because of the late
registration of the teams.
"We had a turnout last night
(Thursday) and we had all of the
teams present except one," Coak-
ley stated. "Based on what we
saw, it should be a very competi-
tive season once we get started."
Both the men and ladies' divi-
sions will comorise of six teams
The Degeo tiommers, the two-
time rdnners-up to the defending
ladies' champions Electro Tele-
com Wildcats, have been demol-
ished and most of the players
have joined forces with the
They will be joined by the
Brackettes, the Proper Care Pool
Lady Sharks and the Whirlpool
One of the junior teams, the
Muck-A-Muck Stars, has moved
up the ranks and will complete
the ladies' field.
The defending champions, the
Electro Telecom Dorcy Park Boyz
will headline the men's list that
will include runners-up TBS
Truckers, Del Sol Arawaks, New
Breed, the Mighty Mitts and the
Stingrays Sporting Club, formerly
the Nassau Cruisers.
"We're off to a late start, but
we anticipate being able to make
up for that by playing some more
games on more nights as we
utilise the nights that baseball is
not playing since their season is
almost over," Coakley projected.
"We have a challenge to get all
of the games in before the
(Bahamas Softball Federation's
national) round robin (in Octo-
ber). We will let each team play
20 games, which is almost the
same amount they played last
With the men's national team
expected to travel to the XX Cen-
tral American and Caribbean
Games in July in Cartagena,
Colombia, Coakley said they
anticipate some interruptions into
"While the men are away, we
intend to play a lot of ladies
games and when the men come
back, we will just play men,"
Coakley projected. "So we-feel
we will be able to overcome the
"But apart from that, we are
pretty anxious to get started
because we have an ambitious
junior programme and we also
want to take the sport into the
community and that's the primary
reason that we want to get start-
On Tuesday, Coakley said the
executives will confirm who will
play in the opening game next
Saturday. There will only be one
game played after the league gives
out awards from two past seasons.
With teams not receiving their
awards from 2002, Coakley said
his executive committee has
agreed to present the awards for
the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
In 2002, the Outlaws won both
the men's pennant and champi-
onship titles, while the Graycliff
Wildcats clinched both the ladies'
pennant and championship
And in 2003, Del Sol carted off
both the men's pennant and
championship titles and the Kiwi
Polish Swingers emerged as the
ladies' pennant winners, but the
Wildcats retained their champi-
During the course of the sea-
son, Coakley said they intend to

awards to the winners of both the
2004 and 2005 seasons.
Are there expected to he any
major changes to 1the Icaums?
Coakley couldn't confirm as the
rosters were not submitted dur-
ing the meeting, but he said the

the biggest move might be with

1. Six spades. Many players, hav-
ing discovered via Blackwood that
their side was missing an ace, would
now bid five spades. This would be
an incorrect use of the Blackwood
convention, since the odds in favor
of making 12 tricks with this hand
must be about 20-to-1. Partner has
other values besides the two aces
shown by his five-heart bid after
all, he jump-raised to three spades --
and those values in one way or
another are almost certain to produce
a 12th trick.
It should be remembered that the
player who initiates Blackwood is
the captain of the ship, and that if you
now bid five spades, your partner
must pass. You'd be throwing away
the slam bonus because of the
unfounded fear that somehow or
other the ace the enemy holds will
take two tricks instead of one.
2. Four diamonds. This is a slam
try indicating that you have the ace
of diamonds, good heart support and
maximum values for your previous
one-notrump response. Partner may
have a hand such as: 4 AKJ73
TAQ82 + J2 + A5, and you'd surely
want to be in six hearts in that case.
If he were to bid five clubs over four
diamonds, you'd jump to six hearts.
Partner would have to be terribly
unlucky to go down in the slam.
3. Three spades. The chief pur-
pose of this bid is to identify your 6-
5 distribution. Since partner previ-
ously denied four-card spade sup-
port, he cannot construe your three-
spade bid as showing a four-card
suit. He therefore will know you,
have five spades.
He will also know you have at least
six clubs, since you would have bid
spades first had you had five of each
suit. Once partner has been apprised
of your shape, it should be easy for
him to choose the best final contract.
