Fringe party may

announce plans

to join with FNM

Calls for action at dilapidated school

SSpeculation that Coalition
for Democratic Reform mem-
bers Phenton Neymour and
Charles Maynard will be
absorbed into the FNM looks
Like being confirmed this week-
end as they bid for unification
of oppositior4frees.
In the past, neither CDR
leader Maynard nor party
chairman Neymour would con-
firm claims that they would run
as FNM candidates in the Ade-
laide and South Beach con-
stituencies, saying they were
not able to comment.
Now, with a press conference
scheduled for Sunday after-
noon, the CDR heads seem
poised to put all speculation
aside and publicly announce
their move to the FNM, leaving
many to question why the two
did not follow their former par-
ty leader, Dr Bernard Nottage,
when he returned to the PLP:
SOne source close to the
CDR leaders said: "I think
they got a very attractive offer
from the FNM that the PLP
could not offer them. They got
preferred seats. They were able
to choose the seats they want-
ed to run in, which was South
Beach and Adelaide.
"With the PLP, there were
so many incumbents that they
would have had to go through
the process and apply. They
didn't want to go through that.
They wanted it to be an auto-
matic thing, and the PLP was-
n't able to offer that to them."

The source did not see the
men's intention to align with
the FNM as opportunistic, but
said their main concern was
having the opportunity to run,
despite the ticket.
The source said: "You may
need to speak with them, but I
know they just wanted to run.
"Why did they choos-et-he
FNM? I think it was only
because of availability."
According to former CDR
member Paul Moss, the FNM's
decision to consider Neymour
and Maynard for two prime
seats is causing disunity in the
FNM because they are meeting
considerable resistance in both
areas by FNMs. who do not
want them.
As to why the CDR is now
calling for a unification of
opposition forces, Mr Moss
said: "I speculate that they feel
that, if they unite, they can be
in a better position to defeat
the PLP."
In November last year, the
CDR began to disband when
its former leader, Dr Bernard
Nottage, stepped down from
his post after being wooed back
to his party of origin, the PLP.
Although The Tribune was
not able contact Dr Nottage
personally for his comments, a
spokesperson for him said that
he had mixed emotions.
"Because Dr Nottage has
grown attached to them," the
spokesperson said, "he would
have preferred to see them
with him, but he wishes them

What a spout!

THE Waterspout that appeared in
Nassau harbour over the holiday week-
end prompted some concern and more
than a little wonder.
"What is it, and what can it do?" were
the questions on the lips of most
Bahamians who spoke to The Tribune
about the sighting.
Chief meteorologist Basil Dean said
thatwaterspouts are natural occurrences
in the Bahamas.
"It's a regular phenomenon, particu-
larly during the summer months which
we are now moving into," he said.
Mr'Iean explained that the unstable
weatherat this time of year creates the
ideal, conditions for the development
of waterspouts.
However, this does not mean the phe-
nomenon, should be treated lightly.
MTipepan said waterspouts can be
very dangerous if not regarded with
He explained that waterspouts are
tornadoes that form over water and are
commonly found in tropical areas like
the Bahamas.
He, vained boaters to be extremely

cautious around waterspouts. "If you
are on the sea and a waterspout is sight-
ed, try to stay away from it," he said.
The eerie spectre of a waterspout in
the harbour was not the only effect of
the unstable weather that caused con-
Over the past week, Members of the
public in New Providence have com-
plained about the frequent flooding due
to rain.
In the last two weeks, the capital has
been drenched on a daily basis; more
than seven inches of rain reportedly fell
in eight days.
One serious problem caused by the
flood water is that the many potholes
that riddle the streets become invisible
to motorists under the water.
Motorists have also pointed out that
the standing water causes erosion and
that when the water clears, the potholes
are often much bigger-than they were
before. .
The flooding in New Providence has
been a problem that the government
has struggled to address for many years
- however as motorists pointed out,
something could be done about the pot-

Ambassador: Western rhetoric misrepresents Cuba's values to world


WESTERN rhetoric misrep-
resents Cuba's values to the rest
of the.World, according to
Cuban Ambassador Felix Wil-
Following a local editorial
that advised the Bahamas gov-
ernment to back away from a
Cuban eye-care programme in
this: country, The Tribune
sought response from Mr Wil-
The; editorial cited calls for
the suspension of the Cuban eye
programme in Jamaica, after a
number of complications were
In an exclusive interview, the
Cuban Ambassador opened up
about Cuba's policies toward its

Caribbean neighbors. 3
Mr Wilson-Hermandez said
several recent articles in the
local press which have called
into question Cuba's interest in
the Bahamas, seem to be born
out of ignorance and a western
propaganda machine aimed at
"mashing down" Cuba.
In the following, Ambassador
Wilson-Hernandez candidly
addresses the topic of Cuba's
interest in reaching out to other
countries in the region.

MH: Cuba offers free services
to the Bahamas, but according
to the old adage, nothing in life
is free. So, what is it that Cuba
expects in return from the
Bahamas for the "free" services
it provides? : . ,:i '

; FWH: Many people have
been asking about that.
That depends on the values
you stand for. If your behav-
iour is based on material val-
ues, then you will think that
Cuba is doing this for money.
: But when you have the moral
values and if we are there dur-
ing the embargo and all this, it is
truly because of our moral val-
ues and part of our moral val-
ies is that the little that I have I
should share with others that
may need what I have in excess.
SCuba has 75,000 doctors. In
Venezuela we have almost
20,000 (working). In Haiti, we
have over 500, and we have
thousands of doctors all over
the world.

MH: How does it benefit
FWH: The benefit for Cuba is
the real satisfaction that you
feel when you know that some-
one needs something that you
have and you just give it away.
If I, for instance, know that
you have poor people forget
about governments, we are not
talking about governments, we
are talking about people and
we are helping some countries
with which we do not have close
But we are helping people.
Cuba does not help govern-
ments; Cuba helps people.
You have Bahamians who
are paying $5,000 for an eye
operation in the US, and they
do not have the means to go to

the US, but Cuba knows that,
and Cuba says 'I have this'.

MH: But doesn't it tax the
Cuban economic system to pay
for these free flights, accom-
modations for the patients,
glasses, and other services with-
out anything in return? When
does this free help become a
burden on the Cuban economy,
if in fact it is done out of gen-
FWH: For us it' is not diffi-
cult to send the doctors here.
We have factories, which the
government owns, to make

MH: So where is the return?
FWH: The only return is the
satisfaction that we feel. I went
to a meeting with some doctors
and they asked: "Why is Cuba
doing this (for the Bahamas)?"
My answer was: exactly as we
have sent 500 doctors to Haiti.
We know that Haiti is a poor
country, right? So where are
they going to get the money?
There have always been his-
torical relations with Cuba and
the Bahamas; something that
people sometimes forget.
So when you have such a sit-
uation, exactly like the one you
have with the US, where con-
trary to what the US talks,
because they give you aid, it is
the tit-for tat. I give you this,
to get that from you. But that is
not Cuba's policy.
Contrary to what the US
talks, the US will always help
you and after that, tell you:
'do that or otherwise I am not
going to give you any more

MH: Is it not also a tit-for-tat
with Cuba?
FWH: (No). That is hypocrit-
ical and that is blackmail
because when you help, you
help for the sake of helping peo-
ple. You don't help to get any-
thing in return.

MH: Yes, but isn't it a subtle
tit-for-tat that Cuba is doing
"nice" stuff for the Bahamas?
We have something to offer
Cuba, so in return, what can the
Bahamas offer Cuba?
FWH: Well that is up to you
to think about it.
Cuba has graduated almost
1,500 Caribbean students, and
let me tell you why: CARICOM
has always been very close to
We are very committed to
having poor countries get
together because life shows you
that the powerful countries

always get together to smash
you, pound you, and to take
advantage of your resources.
We are very well convinced
that we need to get together.
Let me give you an example
from tourism.
You know, Cuba, because of
the embargo, it is not receiving
US tourists. But you know
Cuba receives two million peo-
pie from Europe and Canada
Many people (in Caribbean
countries) feel, that when the
embargo is lifted, (they will be)
finished. That is not Cuban pol-
icy. Cuba will never take advan-
tage of that.
Cuba wants to sit down and
devise a strategy so when that
happens, we go to what is called
multi-destination: Europeans
come to Cuba and we make a
package so that they go to the
Bahamas and visa-versa.
We can help each other.
That's Cuba's policy co-oper-
You know something you can
give us? Expertise. For instance
in tourism, because you receive .
almost six million visitors. You',
have an infrastructure devel-.,
oped. You have ways of using
your resources.
We can receive something
like that from you. You have,
many banks here. You know -
how to organise these, so you
can help us with that.
In addition, you have
We would like to have more
knowledge about Bahamian
music and the Bahamian cul-
ture. So we can co-operate in .m
those areas.
You are having success in ;
fighting AIDS, and we have
been recognized by the UN as
one of the leading countries in
fighting AIDS. You can help us
by sitting down and sharing.
Cuba has pharmaceuticals,
and we are developing eight dif-
ferent vaccines against cancer.
iWe can sit down and see how
we can help.
We can talk about agricul-
ture. One of the things we have
learned to do is live with the lit-
tle that we have. There are
many areas where we can sit
down and co-operate.

In Monday's Tribune, Mr
Wilson-Hernandez's interview
will continue. He will talk
about his love for Cuba and
contradictions in US policies
that do not garner the same
local media attention that
Cuban policies attract.

sends aid to

flood area


THE Guyanese military
planned to send emergency sup-
plies Friday to a southern bor-
der region lashed by heavy rains
that have sparked floods and
left dozens of homes under six
feet of muddy water, officials
said, according to Associated
Military planes were to bring
food and other supplies to
Lethem, capital of the rural
Rupununi Region along the
country's border with Brazil,
said Chabilall Ramsarup, direc-
tor of the South American
nation's emergency office.
Roughly 70 people, mostly
Amerindians, have been evacu-
ated from an area where the
Takatu and Ireng rivers have
burst their banks, Ramsarup
said. The flood victims have
been moved to temporary shel-
ters in nearby schools and a
sports complex.
"We hope to remove many
others but they prefer to stay
in their homes and brave it
out," Ramsarup said in a phone
interview from Lethem, about
350 miles south of the capital,
Electricity was out across
much of the region because a
power plant was flooded, offi-
cials 'said.
Authorities in Brazil's north-
eastern border town of Bon Fin
also report flooding from the
overflowing Takatu River.

pursues five



nese parliamentarians will visit,
Albania Friday, the first official
visit since five Chinese Muslims
sought asylum here after being
released from the US prison at
Guantanamo Bay, according to
Associated Press.
The delegation, invited by the
Albanian Parliament Speaker
Jozefina Topalli, will also meet
Saturday with President Alfred
Moisiu and Prime Minister Sali
Berisha, the parliament said.
China has demanded the
return of the five, detained dur-
ing the US invasion of
Afghanistan following the Sept.
11 attacks, and criticised the US
decision to allow them to seek
asylum in Albania, where they
went on May 5.
US authorities allowed the
men to go to Albania after con-
cluding they posed no terrorist
threat to the United States but
might face persecution if they
returned to China.
China has said the five, mem-
bers of the Uighur ethnic
minority, are suspected of links
to the East Turkestan Islamic

Movement a group accused
by Beijing of waging a violent
separatist campaign in China's
northwestern Muslim region of
Xinjiang and of being close to
Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida
terror network.


SLawyers called to Bat.

,_ ACTING Chief Justice Anita Allen reminded three new attor-
: neys that their actions as lawyers could either inspire or discourage
public confidence in the country's legal system.
"It is vital to this democracy that citizens have confidence in the
fairness and efficiency of our legal system," Justice Allen said.
She was speaking at a ceremony for Dwayne Bryan, Tanisilh
Cates and Damian Neville, who were officially called to thet ".
Bahamas Bar yesterday. .
Justice Allen welcomed and congratulated the new lawyers;,sayr- '-:
ing that they had become "members of an ancient, noble-And
learned profession".
"Its the role of the lawyer to study, to understand and to protect c'-
the laws of this nation," she said. "We operate an adversarial sys'-
tem of justice which is founded on the principle that reaSoned
debate, resolved by fair, impartial and competent judges, will lead '-
to just results." '.'

Expert cale n to investigate:

case of malaria in Exuma


AN EXPERT entomologist was
flown into the country yesterday to look
into the alarming announcement that a
,case of malaria had been diagnosed on
Minister of Health Bernard Nottage
explained that Dr Christian Federic-
ssons will be assisting health officials in
their effort to prevent the spread of the
He reported no additional cases of
the disease.
"I wish to inform you that in con-
junction with the Pan American Health
Organisation, the Ministry of Health
has secured the services of an expert
entomologist who will be arriving in the
Bahamas today to assist us in our inves-
tigations, surveillance and preventative
strategies and efforts," Dr Nottage said.
Health officials, he said, have already

secured water samples from ponds and
other sources and set up mosquito traps.
"Other preventative measures institut-
ed include extensive fogging to the airport
area, the natural ponds and other areas
with large water collections," he said.
Dr Nottage said that during the rainy
season, ongoing vector control exercis-
es are always heightened, but explained
that fogging is now being done twice
daily to reduce the adult mosquito pop-
ulation on Exuma.
"Pond sources have been treated with
Abate, a larvacide, and Malathion was
used in ULV (ultra low volume) treat-
ment for adulticiding.
Malaria is a major international pub-
lic health problem, responsible for 300
to 500 million infections worldwide and
around 1 million deaths annually,
according to health officials.
Factors that can change rapidly and
from year to year, such as local weather

conditions, mosquito vector density, and
prevalence of infection, can markedly
affect local malaria transmission patterns.
Officials say malaria transmission
occurs in large areas of Central and
South America, on the island of His-
paniola (the Dominican Republic and
Haiti), Africa, Asia (including the Indi-
an subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and
the Middle East), Eastern Europe, and
the South Pacific.
The estimated risk for a traveller
becoming infected with malaria differs
substantially from area to area.
On Thursday, the minister announced
that investigations revealed that a per-
son working in Exuma had previously
been diagnosed with malaria after trav-
elling to an endemic area, but said there
is no cause for alarm.
"We have already indicated that
malaria is not endemic in the Bahamas,
but sporadic cases are encountered from

to the House of Assembly on

plight facing Andros. crabs,
which are also becoming more
He is expected to describe
the situation facing these
marine resources as urgent.
A seasonal ban .has already
been imposed on the Nassau
grouper, and in May 2005, the
Ministry of Fisheries
expressed concern about the
over-harvesting of conch -
particularly juvenile conch.
At the time, Lester Gittens
of the ministry told The Tri-
bune that over-harvesting of
conch could lead to the
species becoming "over-
fished" and officially placed
on the endangered list.
Director of Fisheries
Michael Braynen, in an inter-
.view with The Tribune last
year said, that the department
has been engaging in consul-
tations with the public on
whether there should be a
closed season for the harvest-
ing of conch.
Senior fisheries officer Gil-
ford Lloyd declined to pre-
empt Mr Miller's speech next

conch, and that the studies are
"One of the steps that we
are looking at in order to pre-

Mr Lloyd also said the
department has visited a num-
ber of Family Islands where
they consulted local commu-
nities about the status of the
conch stock.
In an effort to preserve the
Nassau grouper, Mr Lloyd
said, capture of the species
was banned from December
of 2005 to February 2006.
.In High Cay off Andros, the
closed season extended from

Plenty of enemies yet to go

The killing in Iraq of the archterrorist Abu
Musab al-Zarqawi is important both for Iraq
and for the U.S. political debate about Iraq.
It is important for Iraq for a few reasons.
First, al-Zarqawi was finally'tracked down
because someone in his organization or in the
SSunni community in Iraq turned against him.
We need more of that, because Iraq will only
,.work if more Sunnis turn against the terrorists
and join the government.
Second, al-Qaida can talk all it wants about
replacing al-Zarqawi, but he is not so easily
replaced, because he was a world-class, first-
team all-star terrorist. For three years he ter-
rorized Iraq, while eluding the U.S. Army,
Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and CIA. Bad
guys like him don't grow on trees. But his
Death will be a turning point only if it leads
more Iraqis to come together into a coherent
government and army. Ultimately, that is all
that matters.
Al-Zarqawi's death, though, also interests
me in terms of U.S. politics. Recent polls show
that not only are the Democrats more trusted
to manage.key domestic issues from health
Scare to the budget but they have pulled
even with Republicans on national security, a
traditional Democratic Party weakness. If I
were the Democrats, though, I wouldn't get
too comfortable.
,What the polls .tle,.result of
President Bush's incompetent performance in
Iraq, rather than the emergence of a convinc-
ing Democratic national security message or
group of candidates respected on defence.
S.When it comes to national security, I've always
felt that voters don't listen through their ears.
They listen through their gut. They vote based
on a visceral sense of whether a candidate
understands we have real enemies and is ready
toconfront them.
What al-Zarqawi and the recently arrested
group of terrorists in Canada remind us of is
That, whatever you think about the Iraq war,
open societies today are threatened by these,
utterly ruthless jihadists. Many Americans feel
that if Democrats want to really seize control
of the national security issue, they must per-'
suade the country in its gut that they
have a convincing post-Iraq strategy to rally
the world against these Islamo-totalitarians.
Precisely how is the subject of two insightful,
provocative new books., One is "The Good
Fight: Why Liberals and Only Liberals -
Can Win the War on Terror and Make Amer-
ica Great Again," by Peter Beinart, editor at

large of The New Republic. The other is "With
All Our Might: A Progressive Strategy for
Defeating Jihadism and Defending Liberty,"
essays edited by Will Marshall, who heads the
Progressive Policy Institute.
"Democrats should be full-throated in their
critique of Bush," Beinart said in an inter-
view. "He has done terrible things. But
Democrats are involved in a two-sided strug-
gle: One is against Bush, and one is against
Islamic totalitarianism. They are two separate
things. You have to have an answer to that
second problem."
Harry Truman's great achievement, argued
Beinart, was to persuade his party and the
country "that anti-Communism was a liberal
principle, not just a conservative one, and that

it a strategy that included powerful inter-
national institutions like NATO, which made
American power legitimate abroad, and civil
rights, which made America a better country at
Democrats need to do the same today. That
means, he said, building institutions that can
intervene in failed states, offering their own
strategies for confronting the jihadists, and
dealing honestly and decently with prisoners in
this murky war.
"Some Democrats want to believe that the,
only reason we lost the last election is because
the other side plays dirty and we don't,'
Beinart said. "But that's not the only reason we
Going into 2008, added Marshall, when Bush
will not be on the ballot, Democrats need to
convey to voters "that they viscerally under-
stand that liberty is in danger" when groups of
people around the world think they can kill
anyone at any time. "There has been real
denial about that among some Democrats," he
said, "and a tendency to focus only on what
we've done wrong."
Democrats can be credible on this issue.
Democrats understand "that the president has
squandered our assets in fighting an overly
militarized war on terror," Marshall said. "We
understand that allies matter and that power
should be exercised through institutions that
legitimate our power and help others work
with us. And we understand that America's
economic might and'our status as an open and
prosperous society has enormous magnetic
appeal to people."

EDITOR, The Tribune

I AM one of those concerned
individuals who have often
complained about the lack of
appreciation or recognition of
those unsung heroes of the
Far too many Bahamians
who have unselfishly sacrificed
their lives just so that others
might have a better quality of
life in the Bahamas have gone
unnoticed and unappreciated.
Whether you were a mailboat
captain travelling to some dis-
tant island, artist, entertainer,
police officer, schoolteacher,
garbage collector, etc, it makes
no difference as one can only
contribute in his or her own spe-
cial way.
For most of these unsung.
heroes, they end up as paupers
and have to depend on the gen-
erosity of others for their exis-
tence in their times of need.
Too many Bahamians have
been proven to be both ungrate-
ful and forgetful when it comes
to those who have positively
impacted their lives. Yes,
Bahamians must acknowledge
and reward those who have '
made a difference with their
unselfish contributions. Give
them their roses while they are
alive is a common proclamation
that I hear all the time.
The question of an appropri-
ate reward or acknowledgment
has been the source of much
public debate lately in the
Bahamas. There are those who,
because of their national pride
and history believe that the
Bahamas highest honours
should be a Bahamian one.
They are advocating that the
Bahamas Government do away
with the colonial awards such
as the Queen's birthday awards
and replace them with a
Bahamian award.
However, for whatever rea-
son the general perception is
that the colonial awards are
more prestigious than the
Bahamian awards. For exam-
ple, the Bahamas Order of Mer-
it Awards still seems to be infe-
rior to the Queen's birthday
award and if given the choice, a
Bahamian would choose the
foreign award.
As I reflect upon these issues
of Bahamian life, I am gazing
at the rugged coast of western
Ireland with their rolling green
hills as they fade away in the
distance. Under a pitch black
sky above the icy north Atlantic
heading for the southern tip of
Greenland, I believe that I have
come to my own conclusion as
to what kind of awards the
Bahamas as a nation should

award. Ironically and by coinci-
dence, onboard Virgin Atlantic
747 flagship aircraft, "Ruby
Tuesday", I am listening to the
music of Bob Marley on one of
the channels provided. Then it
occurred to me that there is a
valid reason why the Bahamas
should not limit itself to just
national awards. A good case
in point would be Bob Marley,
whose music has now penetrat-
ed the four corners of the earth,
not just his native Jamaica.
Clearly, Bob Marley's contri-
bution has gone far beyond the
borders of Jamaica. '
After all, it has often been
said that a prophet is not recog-
nised in his own home. Every-
one is now so familiar with a
group from Harbour Island
called "The Brilanders" with
their Rake and Scrape hit song
"Briland sweet eh!" Only in
recent years has the Bahamian
public been aware of the Bri-
landers. This is amazing because
as a group under the name of
"The Funk Gang" (my brother
Ryland's band, alias "Spy"),
they have been recording since
the mid-1980s. Also, they had
travelled to distant places such
as England, France, Germany,
Sweden, the United States and
toured with one of the most suc-
cessful recording artists, Jimmy
Buffet, yet the average Bahami-
an had not even heard of them.
When they appeared for the
first time in Freeport in the
1990's, several persons asked
me if they were from the United
States. It took some effort on
my part with the assistance of
the pro-Bahamian DJ Max
Dean of ZNS-810 to educate
the Bahamian public about the
Funk Gang. They were better
known outside the Bahamas
than by their own Bahamians.
As for the purpose of this
trip, I had accompanied my
mother (Ma) Ruby Percentie
to England to receive her Most
Excellent Order of The British
Empire Award at Buckingham
Palace. What a mind-blowing
experience! The Bahamian
High Commission went out of
its way to accommodate us,
even providing a car and driver
to take us to Buckingham
Palace. There, our group was
treated to a tour of the splendor
that is Buckingham Palace with
its great history and priceless
pieces of artwork. In the Grand
Ball Room of Buckingham
Palace, pomp and pageantry fit-
ting the occasion was the order
of the day. The ceremonies tra-
ditionally hosted by Queen Eliz-
abeth now 80 years of age, were
conducted by His Royal High-
ness Prince Charles, Prince of
Wales. Flanked by his special
Royal Guards, which also
included members from the
elite Gurkha unit, all smartly
dressed and decorated for the
occasion, invested the recipi-
ents with their awards. In a pri-
vate conversation between
Prince Charles and "Ma" Ruby
after receiving her OBE medal,
the Bahamas, Eleuthera and
Harbour Island dominated the

conversation. Ma Ruby proved:
that she was a more than capa-
ble Ambassador to represent"
the Bahamas as she openly
invited Prince Charles to return
to the Bahamas, especially to,
Eleuthera where the Royal
Family has a home. Should his ,
Royal Highness take up this
in italiion, on his itinerary
would be one of "'Ma" Ruby'
special Cheeseburgers in Par-,.
adise at Tingum Village in Har-
bour Island.
What was so unique about'
this ceremony is the fact that
awardees were from all over the
world. This now puts the whole
award system in its proper per-
spective. A Bahamian could
now share their nationalistic
pride,.with the world. Not bad
for a little barefoot girl:who ,
grew up on the island of Acklins'"

was to become a schoolteacher.

On a sadder note, I was

of my good friend "Sabu" But- i

with little public acknowledg- i
ment by the administrators ofb
the Bahamas. I had known;s

Social activist makes call for live

debates in every constituency

Tribune Staff Reporter
A LOCAL social activist has
recommended that live debates
be held between candidates in
every political constituency in
the run-up to the general elec-
Clever Duncombe, President
of Bahamian Fathers For Chil-
dren Everywhere (BFFCE),
recommended that political
rivals should face each other in
three live debates.
"As opposed to having the
major rallies, we believe that
we can have community town
meetings where the electorate
would be better able to articu-
late what they would want as
an area representative," said Mr
If this is combined with a
debate, he said, it would allow
also for all candidates to state
their position to the Bahamian
people directly.
"Each candidate should have
a personalised socioeconomic
plan for the area that they want
to represent so that we would
know beforehand their position
on many of the issues that non-
profit organizations and resi-
dents are confronted with."
Mr Duncombe said he feels it
would be a "grave injustice" if
the government does not imple-
ment such a system before the
upcoming election, as the
Bahamian people are currently
facing a number of pressing


m ^ pr ^A^ ^

He pointed to illegal immi-
gration, same-sex marriages,
children born out of wed-lock,
crime and capital punishment.
The Tribune yesterday con-
tacted the chairmen of both the
FNM and PLP, as well as the
leader of the BDM for a
response to Mr Duncombe's!
Leader of the Bahamas
Democratic Movement (BDM)
Cassius Stuart said such a sys-
tem would be a demonstration
of "healthy democracy."
Mr Stuart said that personal-
ly, he is up for the challenge -
and would welcome facing both
Prime Minister Perry Christie
and opposition leader Hubert
Ingraham in debate.
"To have us give separate
speeches on a particular day, it
doesn't necessarily bring out
what's inside of us. The debates
are healthy democracy and I
think we need to go that way
not just for the leader, but for
the individual candidates. The
individual candidates are what

make up a government and the
"It is important that they be
given their fair share, to really
express themselves and to say
exactly what they want for their
country. If we don't, we would
end up again and again with
candidates that basically bring
nothing to the country and
bring nothing to constituencies,"
Mr Stuart said.
Free National Movement
(FNM) chairman Desmond

N POPULAR Bahamian entertainer Kirk Bodie (KB)

i By Bahamas Information

Arthur's Town, Cat Island -
Ask local historian Eris Mon-
cur and he will put forward
strong arguments that Colum-
bus made landfall on Cat Island
Despite the fact that this is
rbcognised as the claim to fame
of nearby San Salvador.
According to Mr Moncur
however, at one point in history
Cat Island was in fact named
San Salvador.
One thing everyone can agree
on is that nowhere in the
Bahamas can Bahamian culture
and history be better celebrated

than on beautiful Cat Island.
Never was this more evident
than over the Labour Day and
Whit Monday Holiday week-
end, with the staging of the 8th-
annual Cat Island Rake n'
Scrape Festival.
For four days, visitors and
natives of the 150-square mile
island were lavished with
Bahamian music, food and cul-
Hundreds turned out nightly
at the festival site near the air-
port in Authur's Town to hear
groups like the Lassido, Boys,
Ancient Man, Ophie and Da
Websites and Turning Point
Band performing rake n' scrape

music on instruments that
included a carpenter's saw,
native drum and accordion.
There were several other well
known performers like KB,
Abby, Sparkles, Rudell, Nita
and Tigum Dem, to name a few.
They kept the festivities lively
with more Bahamian music. -
Kirk Bodie, who goes by the;
stage name "KB" was so
impressed with the event and
the turnout that he encouraged
organizers to begin planning for
next year and pleaded with
them never to abandon the
Bahamian flavour of the event.
According to KB, Cat Island
is one of the few Bahamian
islands where traditional cul-

ture is still properly respected
and celebrated.
The 2006 festival was dedi-
cated to the late Earnest Stubbs,
better known as Lassido.
Born in Dumfries, Cat Island
on Christmas Eve 1929 to York
and Estelle Stubbs, he was the
second on nine children.
Lassido sang with the Region
Bells and other gospel groups.
After playing with Ambrose
and theBoys,> he later formed
his own group called Lassido
and the Boys.
Since his death in 1996 the
group kept his name alive, call-
ing themselves the Lassido

Shis support.
"It is an apt demonstration
of pride in our heritage and of a
yearning to display to the wider
world a part of the diverse and
deep roots of the history of the
Bahamian people.
"It is unfortunate that for a
long period rake 'n' scrape as a
form of music was once shunted
aside as perhaps not being a part
of the musical heritage of our

people. Some in generations'past
can be forgiven for considering
rake n' scrape as not being hip.'
"I believe its discovery, in the
nick of time, was more than-a
coincidence in that today thou-
sands upon thousands of young
Bahamians who would not havi
had first hand experience abopt
rake n' scrape have come toia
keen appreciation of the
'rhythm, the rhyme, the beat arid
cadence of the music," Mi

Marines trained in terrorist response

TWO Defence Force officers have
been trained by the US military to lead
the Bahamas' response to terrorist
attacks and other major disasters.
Leading seamen Pedro Bain and Gre-
gory Burrows have returned from a
.four-week disaster preparedness oper-
ations specialist (DPOS) course held in
the United States.
The course was sponsored by the
International Military Training (IMET)
scheme, which is facilitated by the
American Embassy.
The course was designed to provide

officers, civilians and enlisted personnel
responsible for disaster preparedness and
mitigation with the skills necessary to pre-
pare for, defend against, and recover from
major natural or man-made disasters.
The month-long training exercise was
undertaken at the US Army Base in
Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
The various topics covered included
disaster preparedness development
planning, natural and man-made threats,
threat assessment, shelter management,
radiological surveys and hazards, iden-
tifying chemical and biological agents

and hazardous threats assessment.
The initial training was done in a
classroom setting, where students were
exposed to subjects such as marine safe-
ty, the history and tactics of port security
and leadership.
Another aspect of the course was
spent in practical sessions, which includ-
ed defensive and weapons techniques,
searching for and identifying bombs and
explosive devices, and countermeasures
against terrorism.
.Students were required to employ
their newly-acquired skills through par-

ticipation in a simulated terrorist i'l i
on personnel and equipment.
They were also placed in a chenl~.a.
ly toxic environment the Che4caI
Defence 'Trainingl Facility, and' were
required to ellcctively diagnose cm-
plaints associated with certain chemi-
cals and administer medication to eet-
ed personnel. r ,.
Range work comprised lhe,in:)l
phase of the classes, which required ppr-
ticipants to qualify by proving Ihu
familiarity and proficiency with a:njn
ber of small arms.


Facing a room full of disabled
people, Social Services Minis-
ter Melanie Griffin yesterday
challenged them to "be a part
of the solution and not a part of
the problem."
Mrs Griffin observed that,
even in the face of great strides
made on their behalf, too many
disabled persons were content
to just "gripe" about everything.
"Advocacy is good and it is
important," Mrs Griffin noted,
"but there is a thin line between
advocacy and negativity, par-
ticularly when we focus on the
problems instead of focusing on
the solution."
Ms Griffin officially opened
a forum designed to assist dis-

abled persons and their fami-
lies in working towards living
The forum, held at Workers
House on Tonique Williams-
Darling Highway, brought in
about 50 disabled persons, and
persons affiliated with the dis-
Iris Adderley, disability con-
sultant, gave the audience a
similar challenge: "Fight for
your rights," she said.
"Freedom is not free, no-one
will give you anything if you
don't fight for it."'
Ms Adderley, also disabled,
explained that when you are
rejected for a job that you are
qualified for you have to take it
to the next level.
"You can't just leave it alone.

Disabled are

encouraged to

be independent


DISABLED persons were
encouraged to become as
independent as possible by
Minister of Social Services
Melanie Griffin yesterday. '
Mrs Griffin was speaking at
the Forum on Independent
Living for the Disabled, held
at Workers House.
"It is my hope today that, as
you explore the ends of inde-
pendent living, you will not
only focus on what we can do
for you but what you can do
for yourselves," she said.
Following her remarks were
brief accounts from members
of a discussion panel who had
all been touched by disability
in some way.
The first panelist, Linda
McCaulsky, is the mother of a
child who has epilepsy and
"As Bahamians, we are so
obsessed with beauty and the
outward appearance, that
when we think of disability it
is not pretty to us," she said.
'Mrs McCaulsky challenged
the audience to help change
society by making an effort to
rid the country of this inferior
Explaining how being dis-
abled taught her to live for
herself, Julie Hanna, a single
parent with cerebral palsy,
explained the problems she
has faced as a paraplegic.
"Social Services said that
they didn't feel I was capable
of taking care of my children
because I was in a wheelchair.
Determined to do everything
in my power to stop them
from taking them, I learned
to cook, clean and take care of
my family."
Mrs Hanna said that even-
tually she got a job, moved
from Grand Bahama to Nas-
sau, and became actively
involved in her children's
school activities.
"Because you're in a wheel-

chair doesn't mean you have
to go out there begging to
me, independent living starts
with how you feel about your-
self," she said.
Tyrone Johnson, a certified
drug abuse counsellor and
administrative assistant at his
church, explained that becom-
ing blind in 1999 actually led
him to accomplish many
"Ever since that day, I have
been volunteering at the Ado-
lescent Life Centre, mentoring
and giving teens advice on
life's issues, sexuality, deci-
sion-making and anything that
teens go through," he said.
. "I became an independent
living person, got married,
acquired a home, and had
children," Mr Johnson said.
Marvin Finlayson, who is
hearing impaired, explained
how beneficial modern tech-
nology is to persons in his sit-
He said that his condition
does not stop him from living,
as he knows life must go on.
"I am not sa ing that I do-
not need anybody or that I
want to live in isolation, but I
must do for myself," he said.
Plagued with muscle dys-
trophy, Rosemary Lottmore
McPhee gave her perspective
on independent living.
"Despite having weakness
in my muscles, which prevents
me from getting out of a chair
and picking myself up after a
fall, I have to function I
always do things for myself,"
she said.
Mrs McPhee criticised the
government for not having
made more of its facilities dis-
"When I want to go to my
gynecologist at the hospital,
there's never any place to
park, and even when I want to
attend church or a wedding -
there's like six steps to walk
up. How am I supposed to get
around?" she asked.

The sky is the limit," she con-
tinued. "If we can have blind
surgeons, there is nothing that
you can't do if you want to. The
technology is there we just
have to be able 'to force the
issue." example, she said
women would have never been
able to vote if someone did not
fight for it. "We need to use
that same methodology."
Minister Griffin expressed
similar sentiments, saying: "I
hope to examine not just what
can be done for you, but what
you can do for yourselves."

Earlier this week, a senior US official requested
the removal of seven Army helicopters from the

Bahamians reacted with concern, and it was

suggested that the request may encourage drug
dealers to increase activity in the Bahamas.
US Ambassador John Rood moved to calm fears,
saying that if the helicopters were removed,

there would be support from another agency. '

o In brief

looks at
fuel storage
in Antigua

VENEZUELA is looking at
the possibility of building fuel
storage facilities in Antigua and
Barbuda under a program pro-
viding fuel to Caribbean nations
under preferential terms, the
state-run oil company
announced Thursday, accord-
ing fo Associated Press.
Petroleos de Venezuela SA,
or PDVSA, said in a statement
that the company's representa-
tives recently discussed a pro-
posal for "a strategic storage
and distribution point" with
officials from Antigua and Bar-
Alejandro Granado, presi-
dent of PDV Caribe, an affiliate
of PDVSA responsible for the
Petrocaribe program, said the
proposal would be considered
further during a June 14 meet-
ing of Caribbean leaders in
Under the Petrocaribe plan,
Caribbean governments buy
Venezuelan oil at market price
but are only required to pay a
portion of the cost up front.
Much of the remaining cost can
be financed over 25 years at low
interest rates.
More than half of the 13
Caribbean countries that signed
the Petrocaribe initiative last
year have yet to receive fuel
from Venezuela the world's
fifth-largest oil exporter due
to: distribution problems and a
lack of storage infrastructure in
the region.

There were no immediate
reports of major damage or

The 5.2-magnitude earth-

Some slight tremors were felt
in Paramaribo, the capital of
neighboring Suriname, about
240 miles east of where the

Several hundred workers in
Paramaribo rushed out of their

Rock star

Rod Stewart

performs at

Winding Bay

Peter de Savary's Abaco
Club on Winding Bay received
an electrifying performance
from Rock and Roll legend
Rod Stewart and his eleven-
piece band.
This historic first for Stew-
art and The Bahamas gives
the island of Abaco and the
club bragging rights as the first
Family Island to host in con-
cert an international per-
former and recording artist of
Mr Stewart's magnitude.
Since its inception, The
Abaco Club has offered mem-
bers and guests the best and
the variety of amenities one
expects to find at a top-class
Often when the club is
summed up by many, all they
can say is: "It's out of this
world" or "It's off the chain".
The recent merger between
The Ritz Carlton and The
Abaco Club will embellish this
magnificent property and ser-
vices even more.
The importation of Rod
SStewart, a London-born enter-
tainer extraordinaire, to per-
form at a private function for
members and guests of The
Abaco Club is another exam-
ple of de Savary's commit-
ment to export and import cul-
Also determined to show-
case Bahamian culture when-
ever possible, The Abaco
Club is one of the few resorts
in The Bahamas with local
musicians performing nightly
and Junkanoo groups twice
Mr de Savary hosted more
than 100 Bahamian musicians,
entertainers and performers
on Rhode Island two summers
ago to perform at a charity
fund-raising event.
The contingent comprised
The Royal Bahamas Police
Force Band, Colors Junkanoo
Organisation, Action the Lim-
bo Dancer, Ms Daphne

Brown, a 15-year-old Aba-
conian songbird, and Stone
McEwan with his band.
Busters Beach Bar at The
Abaco Club was transformed
for the Rod Stewart perfor-
mance. A stage was erected,
lighting and sound equipment
were added along with other
amenities that enhanced the
all-white dress code for the
Mr Stewart has a long suc-
cessful musical history that
extends back to 1964. His solo
career effectively went into
orbit with the 1971 release of
"Maggie May," an enduring
rock classic with a rustic, ram-
shackle style.
This was his first charting
single in the US. The song
stayed at number one for five
weeks and it is one of the cuts
from his third solo album
"Every Picture Tells a Story",
a rock classic.
His first five albums, "The
Rod Stewart Album", "Gaso-
line Alley", "Every Picture
Tells a Story", "Never a Dull
Moment" and "Smiler" all
appeared in a yearly proces-
sion between 1969 and 1974
on the Mercury label, and are
considered by many to be his
best work.
Over the years, Stewart in
his expressive soulful voice has
put his own stamp on pieces
originally recorded by The
Temptations, "I Know I'm
Losing You", Van Morri-
son, "Have I Told You Late-
ly", Tom Waits, "Downtown
Train", Jimi Hendrix, "Angel"
and The Sutherland Brothers,
At his first Bahamian con-
cert, Stewart preformed some
of his most popular chart-top-
ping hits such as "Maggie
May", "You're In My Heart"
and "Young Turks". Couples
immersed into each other
when he bellowed "Tonight's
The Night" and "Have I Told


You Lately". Everyone was on
their feet dancing to "Do Ya
Think I'm Sexy".

Nassau turns out for Cancer Society Ball

LENDING support to the Bahamas Cancer
Society, Prime Minister Perry Christie together
with his wife Bernadette attended the fifth Annu-
al Cancer Society Ball.
The gala event, aimed at raising much needed
funds for those who may be suffering from this
most serious of illnesses, attracted Bahamians

from all walks of life.
Officially opening the ball, Mr Christie
expressed his joy at being able to support what he
called a "noble venture." .
"As we all know, cancer is an illness which
strikes, sometimes very.quickly and unexpect-
edly. It causes much turmoil, grief and pain for

both victim and family. It is often an illness which
leaves families seeking to secure expensive med-
ical therapy and, in addition, equally as stressful,
wondering where to go for solace, comfort aind
for other forms of assistance'
"I am happy to know that organizations such as
the Cancer Society of the Bahamas through its

many different services has been of invaluable
assistance to the many as they seek to cope with
this dreaded illness," he said.
The prime minister said that the treatment of
cancer is expensive and that the government of
the Bahamas has done much to assist those in

Senior Sports Reporter
WHAT they lack in height,
the men's national basketball
team hope to make up in their
speed and versatility when they
Jiead to. the '18th Senior
Caribbean Championships in
-Kingston, Jamaica.
Both the men's and ladies'
teams will leave town on Sun-
day for the tournament that will
Srjun from June 12-18. The tour-
nament will serve as the first
step towards qualifying for the
-008 Olympic Games.
SAlthough they will be with-
;,out high scorers like Suzette
CIcKenzie, Shantell Rolle and
Glenda Gilcud, the ladies' team,
coached by Linda Davis,
Anthony Swaby and Charlene
'Swish' Smith, will still be
stacked with the majority of the
best players.
However, the men's team,
coached by Charles 'Chuck'
Mackey and Norris Bain from
Grand Bahama, will be missing
some of the country's top play-
ers in Ryan Moss, Mark Dean
and Scott Forbes.
But Mackey said the nucleus
of the team is a young one with
a couple of collegians and a few
pro players, mixed with some
ot the best locally based players.
:"We will have to go with
WVhat we hj\e. You could call
it the changing of the guard with
the number of young players
that \ve have," he charged.
: "Playing at this level, I've had
the exposure and it's hard. It's a
tot of hitting and the focus is on
try-ing to being in that elite three
or four, which we have to do to
mtnove on to the next level."
"Taking over from American
.King Rice, who coached the
'national team for the past two
years, Mackey said he's delight-
ed to be traveling with Bain,
whom he consider to be his pro-
tege and a coach who he know
the players will be willing to
give their full cooperation.
"I think we should be well
and the best we can do is to give
it our best," Mackey insisted.
"It took quite a while to get

bodies out and that has always
been the problem.
"You need at least two weeks
prior to selecting your team to
get your chemistry down. But
we will give it our best. We
know the players will give it
their best because we've been
working with them for a long
time in high school. That's all
we can do, based on what we

the team, Mackey said they will

The floor general will be for-
mer Gonzaga University's
standout Quintin 'Three-
Ounce' Hall, who will be joined
by Ricardo Pierre, another vet-
eran, along with Nelson 'Man-
della' Joseph, Quintin
Demeritte, who is currently
playing in Brazil and Grand
Bahamians Alonzo Hinds and

Marvin Gray.
In the frontcourt, the coaches
will have one player that is over
6ft 9in in rookie Christopher
'Chicken' Turnquest, who
stands at 6-10. The other big
men making up the team are
Leonardo Lightbourne, Judson
Stubbs and Jeremy Hutchinson.
"We will look for the guards
to shoot from the outside and
break down the defense and
take it from there," Mackey
Hall, who will be making his
debut as a coach on the senior
men's team, said despite their
size, they have a number of
players who can play inter-
changable positions, which
should make a difference.
"We have not been able to
get some of our taller players
to come out and play for the
team for various reasons," Bain
stressed. "We haven't been able
to get a lot of the 6-9 players

we have out there;
"But we really have to do
something about our national
pride because this is an oppor-
tunity for us to move on to Cen-
troBasket, the Tournament of
Americas and the 2008
With so much talent in col-
lege and on the pro circuit, Bain
said if they were able to attract
at least half of them, they could
definitely be a force to reckon
with in Jamaica.
"We have some experience
in Quintin, Judson, Leonardo
and Ricardo, who all traveled
on the team before," Bain
pointed out. "So we will be
depending on their leadership.
"Our guards are pretty
strong, but we just don't have
the size and so we will have to
run to combat our size. If we
do that, I think we will be right

QUINTIN 'Three-Ounce"
Hall has been around long
enough to know when the
Bahamas has a good team or
This year's team, heading to
the 18th Senior Caribbean Bas-
ketball Championships in
Kingston, Jamaica this week-
end, will be without the services
of many of the taller players in
the country.
I Bui Hall, the talented point
guard from Grand Bahama,
said although they are very
young, they still ha\e a legiti-
mate dliance to be a contender.
"I djn't think we're carrying
the best team. experience-wise,"
the 28-Vear-old 5-foot-8 floor
generalfwho just came home
from playing professionally in
SGernianai pointed out. "But we
have-'A-ot of young talented
guys fi0o are willing to play."
Declining to speculate as to
why the majority of the top
pla her's are not making the trip,
Hall said he is here to repre-
sent the-country and he intend
to do that with whoever come
out to play.



Christopher 'Chicken' Turn-
quest, the tallest member of the
team at 6ft 10in, said while they
could definitely use some more
height, they are prepared to
play with the talent available.
"Most of the guys are not
here, but we are here and we
are a team from the Bahamas,
representing the Bahamas," the
rookie centre said.
"For me, I'm just going to use
this as an experience and go and
play to the best of my ability.
Even thought we're going there
small, I still think we will be
\ while emphasis is being
Placed on the height of players,
Turnquesi, 22, said the focus
should be on how big the play-
ers play from the inside.
Shooting guard Ricardo
Pierre, who has made every:
national team since 1985,, said
this is definitely the smallest
team he's played on, with no
inside presence; .
"It's going to be hard for us to
actually get the defence to
stretch out," Pierre declared.
"But we're capable of doing a
lot, once we can get our cOmbi-
nation together.
"In practice, we run our plays,


but when we go to the game sit-
uation, we run it a different
way. So I think if we had a little
more time, we would be much
more prepared."
At age 34, the 6-2 standout
said he may be making this his
last trip because he feels that
there are sufficient young play-
ers who can take the team to
the next level.
But if he is invited back to
tryouts and he holds his own,
Pierre said he will reconsider
coming back for another trip
next year.
Back for his second appear-
ance on the men's team, 6-4 for-
ward Judson Stubbs agreed with
everybody about their lack of
height. But he insisted that their
quickness will help them to pre-
"The other teams are pretty
big and they have been playing
together a little longer," he not-
ed. "We are just trying to gell,
so that is going to something
that we will have to work on."
Based on what they have to
work with, Stubbs, 24, said the
team should be among the top
qualifiers because they have
enough players who can come
in and keep up their tempo.

Contract Bridge

BySteve eeker

Solution to
North dealer.
East-West vulnerable.



The bidding:
North East South West
1 Pass 24 Pass
2 Pass 2 NT Pass
Opening lead three of hearts.
"Dear Mr. Becker: This hand
occurred in a rubber bridge game. I
held the East cards. My partner led a
heart against three notrump, and I
won with the ace. I returned the six,
my original fourth-best heart, in
accordance with standard conven-
"Declarer played the ten, and my
partner took the jack. Partner then
shifted to a spade, and South won the
rest of the tricks, taking six clubs,
two spades and three diamonds.
"Obviously, something went
wrong with the defense, since we
could have taken five heart tricks off
the top. My partner contends his play


a Quandary
of switching to a spade was proper
because it was perfectly possible that
declare had started with the Q-10-7-
5 of hearts, in which case cashing the
king at trick three could prove fatal.
"I see no flaw in his argument
because I would also have returned
the six had I originally held A-6-2. Is
there any way for West to have
known to play the king of hearts?
Very truly yours, W.H.M."
Perhaps the best way to answer
this question is to go back to East's
play of the six at trick two. It is true
that in returning the suit partner
leads, it is customary to return the
original fourth-best card from four or
more cards, and the second-highest
card from three. This usually enables
the other defender to diagnose
declarer's holding both as to length
and strength
But, as can be seen in the present
case, the lead of the six does not clar-
ify the true position for West, since
East's return may be based on either
of two opposite holdings. West might
have cashed the king of hearts and
hoped for the best, but he could not
be sure that play would turn out
The answer to the problem is that
East should have returned the two of
hearts rather than the six. This would
cause West to believe that East held
four hearts originally and declarer,
consequently, three. West would then
have been safe in cashing the king,
and the actual heart situation would
have become exposed.

Alisa Galliamova vVictorija
Cmilyte, women's world
championship, Ekaterinburg
2006. Success in top-level
matches Is not usually about
deep strategies orfantastic
imaginative concepts. Bread-
and-butter tactics often swing a
game, and sometimes both
players spot a sneaky trap and
avoid it in the actual moves.
Here it's the world semi-final
and Galliamova has serious
pressure. Her main threat is
(either) Nxc51 dxc5 Rxd7 Nxd7
Rxd7 when White has won a
pawn while Black's position,
remains passive. Black's obvious
counters seem ineffective, for
example R7c7 Nxd6 or Nf6 Nxd6
or e5 Bxe5 or d5 cxd5 all lose a
pawn for nothing. Cmilyte's
actual choice seemed no better,



3 .

a b c d e f g h

but it was the only good move and,.
it also set a wicked trap.
Galliamova spotted the snare.
avoided itandthegame
continued normally. Can you .. i
explain what happened?
