Dr Bernard Nottage:

plementation

of NHI will not be a

drawn out process


* By CHESTER ROBARDS
NATIONAL Health Insur-
ance could become reality in
less than two years, according to
Health Minister Dr Bernard
Nottage.
, In an address during the
Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce's annual general meet-
ing, Dr Nottage said that its
implementation will not be a
drawn out process.
He said the cost of a Nation-
al Health Insurance would be
$235 million per year. Many at
the meeting questioned the real-
ity of the cost quoted, calling it
a conservative figure.
S"To cover this cost it is pro-
posed to raise revenue from
about three target groups, first-
ly the government will con-
tribute about $111 million or
about 48 per cent of the nation-
al insurance requirements, sec-
Ondly employers, employees
and self employed workers will
- be asked to contribute about
" 5.3 per cent of earnings," Dr
' Nottage said.'
He explained, though, that in
the case of employers and
employees the 5.3 per cent
might be shared bermeen them;
but the working public or about
$116 million wouldd provide 49
per cent of the total cost.
, "Protection and promotion
Of health is one of the primary
roles of government and it is
clearly our role in the Ministry
of Health to ensure universal
access to affordable health ser-


vices to all residents of the
Bahamas, from Inagua in the
south to Grand Bahama in the
north," said Dr Nottage.
He noted that in order to
receive the benefits of the
National Health Insurance all
residents would have to be reg-
istered and issued a smart card
in order'to recei' e care. when it
comes online. He also said that
all persons not registered as well
as non-residents will simply
have to pa).
He said that approximately
50 per cent of the population
has pnvate health insurance and
that the other half are dissuad-
ed by gapsin the private insur-
ance system.
"The benefit packages are
variable in terms of how much
protection is offered and many
persons are consciously exclud-
ed from membership and sev-
eral others lose their member-
ship upon retirement or when
diagnosed with a particular
health condition - too often
we found that those who need-
ed it most, when the\ needed
it most were deemed uninsur-
able and sub-standard," said Dr
Nottage.
"Too many lack the funds to
pay for care - for many, this
lack of resources means that
they must make difficult choic-
es between spending' on their
health or using the money for
other urgent needs; in making
this choice many are forced to

BUT to withhold

report cards in

government schools

* By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
STUDENTS in government schools will not
receive their report cards today as negotia-
tions between the Bahamas Union of Teachers
and government have again stalled.
Yesterday, Belinda Wilson, Secretary Gen-
eral of the BUT, said she did not want Educa-
tion Minister Alfred Sears to think that they
were only threatening to withhold the report
cards.
Speaking on Jeff Lloyd's Real Talk Live,
Mrs Wilson said: "I don't want the minister to
think that they are threats you know. Tomor-
row (today) every teacher in the Common-
wealth of the Bahamas will not distribute any
report cards to any parent tomorrow. That is
not a threat. That will happen."
Mrs Wilson said teachers are seeking parity
in salary with other professionals and that their
actions today are in no way designed to
penalise students.
"I want to say to our parents and to the sty-

10,000 marijuana.
plants discovered in

OPBAT operations
0 By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
TWO days of operations by the combined
drug interdiction forces of OPBAT have result-
ed in more than 10,000 marijuana plants being
discovered in Andros.
On Monday officers from Operation
Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, which include the
Bahamas' Drug Enforcement Unit, and US
officers stationed on the island, acting on infor-
mation, searched an area in Congo Town.
While searching the bushy area, the officers
came across a field of plants that they suspect-
ed.to be marijuana.
According to Superintendent Raymond Gib-
son, the officer in charge of the DEU, the
plants on the farm ranged from three to eight
feet in height.
It is estimated that more than 4,000 mari-
juana plants were uprooted from this farm. So
far no arrests have been made. Mr Gibson said
that police investigations are continuing.
On Tuesday, the officers, again acting on
information, discovered another marijuana

Allegations

surrounding

member of

police force

spark intensive

investigation
:AN INTENSIVE investiga-
tion is being conducted into seri-
ous allegations of "unlawful and
unethical practices" on the part
of a member of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, a release
from the. force said yesterday.
. Police Commissioner Paul
Farquharson said that it has
come to his attention that a
number of persons acting in the
name of the police force are
soliciting funds, services and
goods from persons and busi-
nesses,
.Therefore, with immediate
effect any police officer, police
reservist or police civilian
requesting funds, services or
goods without the proper autho-
rization of the office of the
Commissioner of Police in writ-
ing should be denied and that
person be reported to the police
complaints and corruption unit.
While from time to time
organizations and persons of
goodwill have made contribu-
tions to the police force, with
immediate effect all and any
donations to the force will only
be considered after a letter of
request is submitted to the Com-
missioner of Police.
These strong steps come after
a matter involving allegations
of "unlawful and unethical prac-
tices" on the part of a member
of the police force was exposed
in The Tribune.
The force has received a copy
of these serious allegations and
an intensive investigation has
commenced to establish the
validity of these claims.
"The Royal Bahamas Police
Force is mandated to uphold all
laws of the Commonwealth of
the Bahamas. Toward this end
no member of the force, regard-
less of rank or tenure, is above
or outside the bounds of the rule
of law.
"The public is again assured
that any and all allegations of
corruption or unethical behav-
iour on the part of police offi-
cers, police reservists or police
civilians will be thoroughly
investigated in accordance with
Force's policy and the relevant
laws of the Bahamas," the Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force said.

THE area of Athol Island which is to be

on the southern side of the island. not the area in
the photograph published on the front page of
Wednesday's Tribune.
Tour operators frequently use the area shown
,(above) as a stopping point during excursions.
but the areas to which they commute may become
inundated as the development calls for exten-
sion of the island into the bay. An example of the
marine life that can be found off the shore of


Athol Island are pictured here as well. The area
known as the sea gardens is located off the south-
western shore of AtholIsland and is an area
which en% ironmentalists and conservationists say
is sensitive to de% elopmental impact and should
be preserved.
The area pictured on the front page of yester-
day's Tribune is not a part of the "Sea Gardens". It
is popularly known as the "Bone Yard" where the

Minister warns




BUT members




to obey the law


* By MARK HUMES
IN reaction to yesterday's
announcement by the Bahamas
Unibn."of Teachers' leaders to
withhold student final grades,
the Minister of Education
warned that whatever conflicts
or grievances the BUT has with
government, "students should
not. be held at ransom."
With battle lines drawn, Min-
isler' Sears told BUT members
that, in the discharging of their
contractual obligations; they,
like everyone else, must obey
the law.
Appearing as a guest on the
Jeft Lloyd Show yesterday , the
Minister said: "I cannot imagine
any teacher being so misguid-
ed as to engage in that kind of
conduct."
He described the BUT's pro-
posed actions as most unfortu-
nate.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Minister Sears said:
"My job is to fight to improve
the status of education. That
means improving the status of
teachers, the remuneration of
teachers, and ensuring that
teachers are accountable and
effective."
However, thb minister said,


"You cannot put a gun to the
head of the government and
expect that the government
would capitulate and give what-
ever you ask for irrespective of
the physical ability of the gov-
ernment to deliver it, without
imposing additional taxes or
borrowing more money."
In an effort to improve the
status of teachers, the Minister
told Mr Lloyd: "The conces-
sions offered to teachers are
groundbreaking and a number
of them are exclusive to teach-
ers in the public school system."
Of special note, said Minis-
ter Sears, is the awarding of a
12-month sabbatical with full
pay after 10 years of "outstand-
ing service," adoptive leave with
pay once every three years, and
a one week paternity leave with
pay.
Additionally, continued Min-
ister Sears, there have been a
number of allowances that have
been substantially increased,
such as housing and coaching
allowances.
"I am committed, as part of
my obligation, to improve the
status and terms and condition
of teachers as a part of the edu-
cational system," said the Min-
ister of Education.

Man shot

in leg by

would-be

robber

A 50-year-old man is in hos-
pital after being shot in the leg
late on Tuesday.
Police press liaison officer
Walter Evans said that around
10.30pm, the elderly man was
giving another man a ride
through Odell Comer off East
Street.
As the passenger got out of
the vehicle, a short dark man
armed with a gun reportedly
approached the vehicle and
demanded cash from the dri-
ver. When the gunman did not
receive any money he report-
edly shot the 50-year-old man in
the right lower leg. The man
was taken to hospital where his
condition is listed as serious but
not life-threatening.

Witnesses

sought

for traffic

incident

TRAFFIC police are calling
on persons who may have wit-
nessed a weekend traffic inci-
dent which claimed the life of
elderly woman to assist with
their investigation.
Superintendent Berkie
, Wright, of the Road Traffic
Department, said that the
'morning following the incident,
a 17-year-old male reported to
police that he was driving the
vehicle that struck 60-year-old
Emily Pierre.
The teenager was subse-
quently questioned and
released. Police are now looking
for more witnesses to the inci-
dent.
' Police are now waiting on a
pathologist report which will
determine the exact cause of
Death.
Ms Pierre was reportedly
struck down around 10.30 on
Friday night in the Montrose
Avenue area. She is the coun-
try's 22nd traffic fatality this
year.

Venezuela

signs oil

pact with

Grenada

* VENEZUELA
Caracas
VENEZUELA'S state oil
company said Tuesday that it
signed an agreement with
Grenada to supply 340,000 bar-
rels of oil a year as part of a
broader deal to provide crude
products on preferential finan-
cial terms to Caribbean coun-
tries, according to Associated
Press.
Venezuela will ship 55,000
barrels of diesel, 85,000 barrels
of gasoline and 200,000 barrels
of fuel oil to Grenada annually,
Petroleos de Venezuela SA, or
PDVSA, said in a statement.
The two countries are dis-
cussing how the bill can be paid,
- and Venezuela is considering
accepting partial payment in
agricultural products like
bananas and nutmeg, it said.
Grenada's Energy Minister
Gregory Bowen was quoted as
saying that the country would
reinvest savings from the agree-
ment in infrastructure, educa-
tion and health.
A joint venture will oversee
construction of infrastructure
so that Grenada can manage oil
shipments, the statement added.
The agreement is part of
Venezuela's Petrocaribe oil sup-
ply program that it sighed with
14 Caribbean nations last year.
Haiti recently joined the group.
Under the program, the


receiving countries can pay tor a
portion up front and finance the
rest over 25 years at low interest
rates and pay partially in ser-
vices or goods.
Venezuela is the fifth-largest
oil exporter in the world.


Bahamas 'should negotiate




education deal with Florida'


* By KAHMILE REID
THE government should
seek tuition concessions for
Bahamians who go to study in
Florida, Senator Caleb Outten
said yesterday.
Making his contribution to
the budget yesterday at the
Senate, Mr Outten said
rather as well as negotiating
for travel benefits for
Bahamians going to Florida,
the government should also
seek for Bahamian students
to pay in-state tuition - the
same price as Florida resi-
dents.
Mr Outten said he will be
doing research into this idea
and then will be pitching the
proposal to the governor of
Florida, Jeb Bush.
"This is a landmark time,
when the Bahamas and Flori-
da are in much talks concern-
ing LNG, we could expand the
discussions to this excellent
idea.
"Florida needs the Bahamas
to assist millions of residence
to access LNG in their home,
we should now negotiate with
the government of Florida for
Bahamians to travel to Florida
and pay in-state tuition," Mr
Outten said.
Speaking to The Tribune,


Mr Outten said that since the
government is negotiating set-
ting up three LNG facilities
in the Bahamas, a venture
that will attract billions of dol-
lars, it is feasible to table in
higher education benefits
rather than mere traveling
benefits.
"We are talking about bil-
lions of dollars... allow our
people to go to your (Florida)


and pay in-state tuition," he
said.
Mr Outten said even though
the College of the Bahamas
and other tertiary level insti-
tutions are ably preparing
graduates for the work world,
it would still be beneficial for
college candidates to venture
outside the country for addi-
tional education.
"Florida has loads of


options, and if we could broker
a deal where our qualified can-
didates paid in-state tuition it
would be a giant leap" Mr Out-
ten told the Tribune.
Florida, he added, is close
and has a culture which
Bahamians are acquainted to.
In addition it offers a wider


variety of studies, higher cer-
tificates and higher degree pro-
grammes.
Mr Outten says this could be
the educational break*trirroughl
many have been playing for,
and one that should automati-
cally translate into success
among Bahamians.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands - Four
months after the death of Slobodan Milo-
sevic, the most notorious Balkan war atroc-
ities are once again coming under the gaze
of international justice, and raising ques-
tions about the slow pace and effective-
ness of the trials.
On July 10 former Serb President Milan
Milutinovic and five Serb officers and law-
makers indicted for atrocities in Kosovo
go. on trial before the U.N. war crimes tri-
bunal, followed four days later by seven
Bosnian Serb officers accused of com-
arriding soldiers in the massacre at Sre-
brenica. And on Friday the judges deliver
their verdict on Naser Oric, a Bosnian Mus-
lim commander charged with murdering
Serbs in 1992 and 1993 and wantonly
destroying Serb villages.
But the shadow of Milosevic hangs over
the tribunal, along with the failure after a
decade-long hunt to capture former Bosn-
ian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic and
Bosnian Serb Army commander Gen.
Ratko Mladic, the two men charged with
masterminding the massacre of nearly 8,000
men and boys in the Bosnian Muslim
enclave of Srebrenica in July 1995.
Milosevic died in hiscell of a heatt attack
near the end of his genocide trial that had
lasted four years. Some trials of lesser sus-
pects have gone on for a year. Momcilo
Krajisnik, speaker of parliament in the
breakaway Bosnian Serb:,republic during
the 1991-1995 Bosnian war, was handed
to the court in April 2000 and didn't go
on trial until four years later. Proceedings
are only now nearing their end. ,
All this has prompted concerns that red
tape and the failure to arrest key suspects:
are hampering the ability of the Intei a-
tional Criminal Tribunal for the former.
Yugoslavia to deliver justice. :
Chief Prosecutor Carla Del Ponte is so
frustrated at the failure to apprehend
Mladic and Karadzic that she says she may
now seek the U.N. Security Council's
'approval to join in the hunt herself.
"Since no one else seems to have the
political will to locate and arrest Karadzic
al, Mladic, I will have no choice but to
seek from the Council the powers to arrest
fugitives wherever they are and to a locate'
to my office the necessary resources for


this," Del Ponte said this month at U.N.
headquarters in New York.
The tribunal has no police force and
relies on governments and NATO-led
forces to arrest suspects.
Mladic is thought to be hiding out in Ser-
bia, but authorities in Belgrade say they
cannot arrest him. Karadzic is believed to
be in a Serb-controlled stronghold in
Bosnia.
Dozens of other trials are under way or
in preparation at the tribunal.
Set up by the Security Council in 1993,
the court, based in a former insurance com-
pany. office in The Hague, has indicted 161
suspects, convicted 38 of them and acquit-
ted eight. Twenty-one are serving their
sentences in prisons across Europe and 17
have been released after completing their
terms.
The new trials come at a time of tension
between Del Ponte and trial judges over
the time it takes to bring suspected war
criminals to justice - a problem high-
lighted by Milosevic's:death, which
deprived victims, jurists and historians of a
conclusive verdict on the ultimate respon-
sibility for such atrocities as Srebrenica.,
Richard Dicker, of New York-based.
Human Rights Watch, said the tribunal
must pick up the pace.
"I think it's important to draw lessons
from the Milosevic trial because very
important trials are yet to come ..." Dicker
said. "Eventually Ratko Mladic and
Radovan Karadzic will be tried by this tri-
bunal."
Dicker said prosecutors should focus on
a smaller number of crimes for which evi-
dence is plentiful in order to prove broad-
er charges such as genocide that by defin-
ition involve widespread offences.
Tribunal judges also need to know when
to rein in suspects such as Milosevic who
choose to defend themselves and thereby
prolong their trials.
Self defence is a recognized right "that
should be honoured but not abused fla-
grantly by an accused who is seeking to
use a criminal.trial for the purpose of
advancing his.or her political agenda,".
Dicker said.

EDITOR, Tile Tribune.
THE pressure that the PLP
is feeling from the FNM is caus-
ing officers and members of the
government to display a seri-
ous case of paranoia. We must
be careful because fear causes
some unusual behaviour from
people. Fear sometimes even
causes hallucinations. Fear even
causes one to feel like every-
one is against them. Be sure
your deeds will find you out.
First it' was the chairman of
the PLP Raynard Rigby who
issued an ultimatum to The Tri-
bune, signaling that the PLP will
resort to their "old self" of
intimidation and victimisation.
The hot air that emanated from
Mr Rigby spells out that the
PLP is running scared and will
"chew up" anyone who gets in
their way.
No less a person than Minis-
ter of Foreign Affairs Fredrick
Mitchell himself is crying about
unfair press. "Well blow me
down". Fred Mitchell, in the
flesh, is complaining about
something that he mastered, ie,
distorting the facts. Fred was
well schooled, being a part of
the ZNS team during the Pin-
dling era when the press was lit-
erally under siege. ZNS only
aired what Pindling wanted the
people to know. Keeping the
people uninformed was
designed to control information.
I double dare Mr Mitchell to
refute this.
Who can forget how the PLP
fought "tooth and nail" not to
allow any other radio station to
be licensed. Unless Fred
Mitchell and Raynard Rigby
have a serious case of amnesia,
they should turn around,, face
the wall and put on the tallest
dunce cap ever.
The naked truth is that the
only difference between then
and now is that their original
game plan to keep the people
stupid was completely
destroyed by Hubert Ingraham,
when he allowed several radio
stations to be licensed.
But in an effort to attempt to
still have a strangle hold on
information getting out, Fred
Mitchell and Raynard Rigby are
"crying wolf". But the sad fact is
no one is listening, especially
the people who know just what
happened during the Pindling
era. One can only conclude that
the PLP may be attempting to
return to those days.
Castro controls information
from being disseminated in
Cuba, allowing Granma (Cuba's
newspaper) to be the only voice.
The PLP is on that same path


allowing ZNS to withhold oppo-
sition's contributions in the
House of Assembly and FNM
functions that are never report-
ed and intentionally left out. It
is frustrating to see that the
Bahamian people fund ZNS
and the PLP is using it only to
their benefit. This is wrong and
we must pay them back for that
too.
Minister Mitchell must calm
down, the real action has not
yet started. The opposition

even when dealing with cases involving severe injury where
the patient is understandably hysterical? Does the fact that a,
physician is required to maintain a certain level of decorum inj-

approach to a problem is better when navigating through ac,
complex situation? Now remember, the physician has his liveli-'.,-

Ought we to expect less than this standard of convention sb
from those who are at the helm of our nation? '-1:
I have a news flash for those who seem unaware of the'-BU
predicament in which The Bahamas now finds itself. Immi-c-'
grants - legal and illegal - are already here in significant nutfi-''2

Senator

proposes

mentorship

programme

* By KAHMILE REID
SENATOR Caleb Outten
has proposed a mentorship pro-
gramme to reduce the number
of "young men hanging out -
just doing nothing" in Grand
Bahama.
Speaking at the Senate yes-
terday Mr Outten said: "If
Grand Bahama is laden with
dejected young men, then so
are Nassau and the wider
Bahamas."
He is calling for politicians,
along with civilians, to volun-
teer some of their time to the
cause.
"We must begin to mentor
our boys... it is one thing to try
and fail, but to not have tried in
the first place is detrimental to
our nation's development".
While Mr Outten admits that
theyoung men who need the
help outnumber those who can
give it, he believes that the
efforts of those who volunteer
would be a step in the right
direction.
Mr Outten indicated his
intent to liaise with the Univer-
sityof the West Indies about
the possibility of modelling their
mentorship programme.

Wrong recommendations



on traffic system printed


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
ROAD Traffic Controller
Jack Thompson has admitted
that the wrong set of recom-
mendations for a unified bus
system were published in a
recent government supplement.
At a press conference on
Tuesday, Public Transit Asso-
ciation Bahamas (PTAB) pres-
ident Reuben Rahming claimed
that the government's recent
supplement on a preferred
model for the unification of the
bus system for New Providence
was "exceedingly flawed."
Mr Rahming said the gov-
ernment claimed the supple-
ment - published in the Nas-
sau Guardian on June 21 - was
a "full copy" of the preferred
module. However, he claimed


* JACK Thompson


it was not a "true representa-
tion" of the final report issued
to the industry.
He pointed out that in the
final draft of the model, it stat-
ed that "it is important for gov-
ernment to hold minority shares
in the new company" and that
government should obtain 20


to 30 per cent of the equity at
no cost. However, in the sup-
plement this was replaced with:
"That government does not
take up any equity in the new
bus company."'
Mr Thompson yesterday
admitted that the supplement
had accidentally been printed
with the recommendations
from an earlier draft.
He pledged that the depart-
ment will reprint the supple-
ment with the correct recom-
mendations.
"We regret .this miserably
and we do apologise for an
inconvenience caused," he said.
Earlier this month, Mr
Thompson said that it would
be premature to set a date for
the implementation of the uni-
fied bus system.
At that time, he said, although


Development bank 'hinders business'


* By ROYANNE
FORBES-DARVILLE
THE.Bahamas Develop-
ment Bank is a "hindrance"
to small business develop-
ment, according to Senator
Caleb Outten, who said he
intends to advocate for the act
governing the bank to be
revisited.
The Act was written in
1974 and is "hampering" the
development of commerce,
Mr Outten said in his address
to the Senate during yester-
day's morning session.
Lengthy loan processing,
he-said, among other things,
is a setback for entrepreneurs
who need "quick cash."
But, George Rodgers, Man-
aging Director of Bahamas
Development Bank (DBD),
in an interview with The Tri-
bune, yesterday explained that
the purpose of the bank is
oftentimes misunderstood.
The main objectives of the
bank, he said, is to jump-start
new projects, assist in ,the,
rehabilitation of existing ones

and fund development of
indigenous products.
"We are not a commercial
bank and if the need is for fast
cash then people need to go to
the commercial bank," he
said. "In many cases people
take what we do out of con-
text and try to compare us to
the commercial sector."
However, Mr. Rodgers
explained that executives are
seeking to have the Act
reviewed because there are
certain provisions that need
amendment.
"We would like to have
joint ventures with foreigners
and some of the terms and
conditions updated because,
if a local manufacturing com-
pany needs to expand and
there is an international conm-
pany with that expertise that
can help, the bank would not
be able to lend funds for that
venture, because the mandate
of the bank is to assist only
local businesses," Mr Rodgers
said.
S" have, to admit that today,
it is no longer brilliant and can


be more appropriately
described as cumbersome . . .
*slow and discouraging to
Bahamians seeking assistance
in beginning a business.
According to Senator Out-
ten, if changes are not made to
include more favourable lend-
ing to low and high risk ven-
tures, the BDB will continue
to be seen as the, "place to go
when the commercial banks
won't 'do the lending."
Mr Rodgerg said that the
bank operates within a very
restricted market.
"We can probably look at
one or two commercial ventures
that are close to what the BDB
is expected to do," he explained.
"So in other words, (BDB's
mandate) could be'brought a
little closer to the commercial
sector."

the implementation of the mod-
el is slow to arrive, it remains
the best, most workable system
for New Providence.
Yesterday he said that the
framework of the business plan
is being worked on, and stake
holders will shortly be brought
around the table to assist with
the business plan.
On Tuesday, Mr Rahming
expressed concern about a for-
eign consultant who is prepar-
ing this business plan, claim-
ing that industry personnel
have not been introduced to
this consultant, or provided any
information.
Mr Thompson said that
industry personnel would be
given the opportunity to have
an input with the business plan
of the unification of the bus
system.

"ESCALATING Need", was
the phrase used by Prime Minis-
ter Perry Christie to describe the
growing demand for residential
care and accommodations for
the country's senior citizens.
With the official opening of
the Residential Care Establish-
ments Licensing Authority office
on Tuesday, questions about the
need for residential elderly care
are being brought to the fore.
The Tribune hit the streets


yesterday to ask the Bahamian
public their views on care for


the elderly?"
The president of the Nurses
Association, Ampusam Symon-
ette, said: "Elderly persons are
living longer because of the
availability of new types of
healthcare. Individuals are more
aware of what their needs are as
it relates to healthcare." Mrs
Symonette added that many
persons would like to give
'hands on care' to their elderly,
but are unable to do so because
of time or other contributing
factors. "Generally young per-
sons do have concern for their
elderly, but they have their own
lives as well."
"We have to accommodate for
the elderly" said Castella Bowleg
"Persons these days aren't able
to stay home to care for their
older relatives. If they can't give
the physical care, they give finan-
cially to ensure their relatives are
taken care of," she added..


One interviewee said: "Not
too far back that responsibility,
fell on the women. Today
women are out in the worl4
working, so there is no one to
keep house." He continued?
"The children are sent to day(
care and the elderly family
members are sent to another
type of daycare." '
Ashleigh Uriasz said: "Their
family members have their own
households and can't handle th4
extra responsibility. I don't)
think we have proper housing
for the elderly. They need to bE
in an environment where they.
can be taken care of."
"Today's generation doesn't
fully know about family value, &
said Livingstone Sweetiqg�
"They don't have much sense,
of responsibility, because tlhy
are more privileged."
One Bahamian said: "Some-,
times the structure of the home
may not have been right, and
the children grew up disliking
the parent or parents."
He added: "It's up to us that
know better to do what is right.'
If we can't care for them, we
should assist with financial
backing. This would ensure that
their last days are spent peace-,
fully, because in the end the
Lord will bless you for it."

3THE WATER AND, SEWERAGECOR3PORATIONRSP

DiYNrMIfC CALNESO OER EEOIN AAA


Hon Bradley B. Roberts, MP,
Minister of Works and Utilities
This excerpt from The Hon. Bradley Roberts'
Contribution to the Budget Debate details the
Water and Sewerage Corporation's Strategy
for Continued Development of Water and
Sewerage Services throughout The
Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE/
CHALLENGES
Mr. Speaker, I wish to speak on the
revolutionary and visionary approach of
this government towards water and
sewerage services in this country. In sc
doing, I wish to draw the attention of
members of this house to the state of
affairs of this portfolio. In this regard I
wish to remind Honourable Members of
the ongoing challenges kt the
Corporation, which have spanned
..;several decades, challenges that
include:
* Unreliable potable water supply
* Inadequate potable water supply
* Poor water quality
* No piped water supply - in some
places in New Providence and the
Family Islands
* The Andros barging programme
* High unaccounted for water/non-
revenue water (53%) in New
Providence
* Unreliable and antiquated sewerage
, . programmes-. .. :
, Inadequate regulatory framework for
groundwater management and
pollution control

These challenges, Mr. Speaker, have
hindered the Water and Sewerage
Corporation from achieving its full
potential. In fact the long standing
nature of these problems are
symptomatic of the priority that
successive administrations may have
placed on this most important aspect of
our lives. Indeed, as I have said so
many times in these hallowed halls,
water is the quintessence of our very
existence. Whilst man can survive
without electricity and telephone, man
cannot survive without water and has
not done so for thousands of years.

Mr. Speaker, in simplistic terms water is
the essence of life - it is the most
important commodity in the world. The
recent experience of Hurricane Katrina
has amplified just how important quality
water is to human existence and life. In
the city of New Orleans, in the
aftermath of that destructive hurricane,
even though electricity and
communication services were restored
in reasonably short order, nothing was
allowed to happen in that city until
potable water was made available and
the toilets could be flushed.

Water for The Bahamas and the
Bahamian people is a national security
issue of the highest order!! Mr. Speaker
solving our water issues is of
paramount concern to this government
and I submit that this is the same
position that the former administration
should have embraced.

Mr. Speaker, this government
recognizes that the provision of safe
(and affordable) drinking water and the
disposal and treatment of wastewater
have to be integrated into our national
security, as they impact the health of
residents and visitors alike. We have tc
J raise the awareness of our people, to
an unprecedented level of seriousness,
on the importance of water. We in New
Providence, where the largest
population centre resides, can ill-afford
to waste this precious commodity. We
must educate our children, from pre-
school age, of the value and importance
of water.

Mr. Speaker, Honourable Members and


members of the public, this is an
awesome task, which requires the total
commitment of all stakeholders and
strategic partners to help address this
very important topic.

Mr. Speaker, as a resident of the Family
Island of Eleuthera, you can easily
attest to the state of affairs in the Family
Islands, as it pertains to water and
sewage. You can attest to the despair
that our fellow Bahamians feel when
they cannot enjoy something as simple
as having a drink of fresh water or
catching ainice refreshing bath. Mr.
Speaker - you can attest to the
importance of water!

NATIONAL STRATEGIC PLAN
It is with this image in mind that this
caring PLP government has developed
a strategic plan to arrest and address
e the woes that befall the Bahamian
public, as a result of the Corporation's
long-standing challenges.

Mr. Speaker, this was the image that led
the leader of this responsible and caring
PLP government, the Rt. Honourable
Prime Minister Perry Gladstone
Christie, to direct the Water and
f Sewerage Corporation to ensure that
every citizen of the Commonwealth of
The Bahamas would have access to
high quality, reliable potable water in the
shortest possible time-frame.

f This directive, Mr. Speaker, resulted in
the formulation of a New National
Water & Wastewater Strategy, the
expressed purpose of which is to
produce a high quality, reliable potable
water supply system and a modern
sewerage collection, treatment and
disposal network, in compliance with
international standards, for New
Providence and the Family Islands.

The cornerstone of this strategy is this
government's public-private partnership
philosophy, which has already resulted
in the delivery of high quality, reliable
potable water, by, desalirntion, to many
residents of our Commonwealihiwho
previously had either a poor quality
supply or no water.

FAMILY ISLAND PROGRAMME
Mr. Speaker, as our Honourable leader
attested to earlier, to date this PLP
government has commissioned 10
desalination plants in the Family
Islands, notably in:

* Moores Island, Abaco
* Bimini
* Waterford, Eleuthera
* Farmer's Cay, Exuma
* George Town, Exuma
* Staniel Cay, Exuma
* Matthew Town, Inagua
* Deadman's Cay, Long Island
* Duncan Town, Ragged Island
* Cockburn Town, San Salvador

Not to leave any stone unturned, this,
government also entered into a
contractual arrangement with the
Emerald Bay Resort in Exuma for the
supply of additional desalinated water
for Western Exuma. I must hasten to
add that this was in compensation for
the environmental damage caused to
the freshwater lens during the building
of the resort.,

Mr. Speaker, this PLP government,
recognizing the importance of water and
hearing the cries of its people, is poised
to commission yet another desalination
plant - in Central Eleuthera. This newly
, completed RO plant will be
commissioned shortly. This plant is
capable of producing 400,000 imperial
gallons per day, making it the
Corporation's largest Family Island
desalination facility. The Corporation is
also currently negotiating to increase
the production capacity of the George
Town RO plant from 200,000 IGD to a
minimum of 330,000 imperial gallons
per day to meet the ever-increasing
demand for potable water in Exuma.

Mr. Speaker, as is our custom, this
government performs due diligence on
all projects. In so doing for the Central
Eleuthera RO project, some alarming
information was brought to my attention.
I was shocked and dismayed to
discover that there are a number of


settlements where water mains,
e installed during the 1950s and 1960s,
were never replaced or renewed.

Mr. Speaker, many of these old mains,


which are comprised of surface laid
galvanized pipes, were actually
included in the list of works to be
replaced in the 1994 'Eleuthera Water
Improvement' project. This project,
which was funded by the Caribbean
Development Bank, was completed
under the watch of the former
administration. I am advised that, in
typical fashion, the former
administration actually allowed these
works to be excluded from the project,
when it became evident that the funds
advanced could not meet all
requirements. It begs the question -
'how could this have happened? Why
were no actions taken to correct this
critical error?' Mr. Speaker, it is clear
that the people of Eleuthera were-
misled,.as apparently no explanations
were offered.

Mr. Speaker, I understand that during
this incomplete exercise, settlement
mains were replaced in Spanish Wells,
The Bluff, Current, Gregory Town, Alice
Town, Governor's Harbour, Tarpum Bay,
and Rock Sound but no pipes were
replaced in Upper & Lower Bogue,
James Cistern, North & South Palmetto
Point and Savannah Sound, the areas
where many of the old surface laid
galvanized pipes reside.

Mr. Speaker, it gets more interesting,
the former administration amongst other
things also installed underwater mains
to service, Harbour Island and Spanish
Wells, and subsequently in 2000, in an
IDB funded project, installed new pipes
in the southern settlements namely
Green Castle, Waterford, Deep Creek,
and Wemyss Bight, with transmission
mains linking all of these.

However, Mr. Speaker, in spite of all the
above, including the incomplete project,
the former administration failed to
appreciate that when you extend your
transmission system, or offer services to
more people, you need to increase your
actual water supply. A classic case of a
lack of vision and as the saying goes,
.."..where there is no vision....".

Result - insufficient water to many
areas of Eleuthera, including Harbour
Island, where the loudest cries
emanated!

This short-sightedness was typical, of
the priority placed on water by the
former administration but this caring
and visionary government is moving
resolutely to address these
shortcomings.

This government, with its strategy to
provide safe quality potable water to all
Bahamian residents, has already
committed to the immediate
replacement of water mains in Upper &
Lower Bogue, James Cistern, North &
South Palmetto Point,'and Savannah
Sound. In the eyes of this caring
visionary government it makes no
sense to pump first class potable water
through old galvanized rusty pipes.

The cost of these new water mains and
pipes will exceed $2 million.
Mr. Speaker, the next major
programme, slated for 2007, will be
connecting Rock Sound and Tarpum
Bay with RO supplied water.

Mr. Speaker, I would be remiss not to
remind this Parliament of the election
ploy used by the Hubert Ingraham led
FNM government on the good people of
Long Island, where water mains were
installed in the Deadmans Cay area of
Long Island, years in advance of the
installation of a RO plant. It took this
government to come to the rescue of
the people of Long Island and install a
RO plant. It was also our intention to
extend water mains to Salt Pond and
Clarence Town and then to other areas.

Regretfully, Mr. Speaker, our intentions
and the hopes of the people of Long
Island were dashed when we
discovered that the 'election ploy' pipes
were of inferior quality and could not
hold quality potable water. In short the
pipes burst and had to be replaced at a
cost of almost $700,000.

Was this the action of an accountable
and caring government?


Mr. Speaker and Honourable Members,
it did not stop there. It was actually
worse in Inagua, where the water
connections for the mains that were laid


had to be dug up and replaced because
they simply dry-rotted because of a lack
of water flowing through them. Is this
what you would expect of a
government? This was a terrible hoax,
perpetrated by persons who had the
gall to call themselves an accountable
government.

I invite the Bahamian people, when
these persons come knocking at the
doors this time, to simply look them.
straight in the eyes and to say that 'we
are supporting Perry Christie's PLP, a
productive, dynamic, accountable and
caring government!'

Mr. Speaker, this government
recognizes the critical importance of
water and wastewater services to
lifestyles and developmental growth in
the Family Islands and is committed to
addressing this long-standing and
damning problem. Whilst we are
opportunistically seeking to supplement
our efforts by public-private-
partnerships (PPP) in key growth areas,
like Exuma, West End, Grand Bahama
and Eleuthera, we are simultaneously
planning to install desalination plants in
sparsely populated islands as well. This
is the essence of our new national
water & wastewater strategy.

This government, Mr. Speaker, is
currently finalizing plans for the
construction of additional desalination
plants, within the next six months, in the
following Family Island areas:

* Green Turtle Cay, Abaco
* Salina Point, Ackins
* Snug Corner, Acklins
* William's Town, Exuma
* Sweeting's Cay, Grand Bahama
* Long Cay, in the Mical,constituency

PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP
VISION
Mr. Speaker, consistent with our PPP
policy, this government is working with
developers of major Family Island
projects to ensure that any water supply
facilities developed for these projects.
address the demands of neighboring
Bahamian communities. This model is
being pursued in Cherokee Sound,
Abaco (Winding Bay development), Cat
Island, Mayaguana (I-Group
development) and Rum Cay (Montana
Holdings development).

Mr. Speaker, this strategy is by far the
best strategy for advancing the
development of the services of the
Water and Sewerage Corporation,
whilst simultaneously creating wealth in
The Bahamas. Most certainly the fact
that foreign groups/individuals are
clamouring to provide us with
'assistance' in these areas, is a
testament to the tremendous
opportunities available.

With regards to the wealth creation
aspect of PPP, this visionary
government also recognizes and
endorses this safe investment
opportunity for Bahamian institutional
and individual investments, via debt or
equity arrangements.

NEW PROVIDENCE PROGRAMME
Mr. Speaker, in addition to the stated
benefit this initiative brings, we must not
lose sight of the benefits to the
Corporation by way of cultural and
personnel development. This will be a
bi-product of the exposure of dedicated
staff at W&SC, as strategic partners
open their operations and networks to
the Corporation.

Mr. Speaker, in addition to our vibrant
Family Island programme, this
government has also been active in
New Providence, where we are
responding to the loud cries of the
people for a government that
recognizes and addresses their basic
needs. This government recognizes
and understands that the supply of
water to a modern metropolitan city and
major touristic destination cannot be
predicated on the barging of water and .
mining of depleted well fields.

Mr. Speaker, this government, true to
form, sought to address this perplexing
state of affairs. Consistent with our
PPP philosophy, we have awarded a


contract for a five million imperial
gallons per day desalination plant at
Blue Hills to Consolidated Water
Company Limited. The plant was
partially commissioned last month and








THURSDAY, JUNE 29,2006, PAGE 9
'1 _____________ ______, -


has already begun to supply 1.6 millions
imperial gallons per day of potable water.
Full commissioning is expected by August,
2006.

Mr. Speaker, this government recognizes
that the barging of water from Andros,
which was intended to be a temporary
solution, was allowed to drag on, becoming
increasingly expensive and unreliable due
to adverse weather conditions and
mechanical failures. The reality is that the
price of RO water is cheaper than the cost of
barging and is not subject to weather
conditions. In addition, special purpose
water barges are becoming increasingly
scarce.

Mr. Speaker, our strategic plans for
eradicating the water problems in New
Providence extend beyond the Blue Hills RO
plant and we are finalizing negotiations for


another plant for Northern New Providence.
In addition, directives have already been
issued to initiate plans for yet another plant
in the Winton area.

This PLP government believes that the Blue
Hills RO plant represents an historic step in
our vision to guarantee the supply of high
quality, reliable potable water to each and
every resident of and visitor to New
Providence and Paradise Island.

However. Mr Speaker, I would be remiss not
to advise the residents of New Providence
that once this system becomes fully
operational, anyone desirous of saving
money and/or enjoying a consistent supply
of quality potable water should quickly
embrace the opportunity to become a new
or returning customer of the Corporation.

In addition, Mr. Speaker, as mentioned to the
good people of Exuma during the contract
signing ceremony for the extension of water
mains throughout that island a few weeks
ago, the introduction of RO water will mean
that residents in New Providence will be
able to, in due course, take baths,and
shampoo their hair, using very little soap
and shampoo. Expenditure on these items
should decrease significantly.

In addition, Mr. Speaker, the quality of
potable water will be equal to that of
bottled water. Quality potable.water will
transform the lives of the people of New
Providence and elsewhere in The Bahamas.

Mr. Speaker, this government also
recognizes the potential dangers of using
well water, which can adversely affect one's
health, and strongly encourages all
residents to utilize their well water supplies


WATER DELIVERY STRATEGY
Mr. Speaker, this government is fully aware
of what it will take to equip The Bahamas to
maintain the standard of living it is
accustomed to and to continue the trend of
attracting quality investors and tourists.

Continued development and the tourism
industry are heavily dependent on
adequate infrastructure in general but
specifically on consistent supplies of quality
potable water and proper wastewater
services for continued survival.
Consequently the adequate supply of water
is one of the most important factors in the
development of a. modern Bahamas.

Mr. Speaker, this government is fully aware
that the world-class reverse osmosis
facilities that we are building to meet our
current and future needs will be of little or
no benefit to the Bahamian people without


'an equally robust world-class transmission
and distribution system.

As is the case with other islands, New
Providence also suffers from old and faulty.'
mains. This is particularly unacceptable as
neglect, and/or lack of focus in New
Providence, has lead to daily leakages and
losses from the water distribution system in
excess of 50%.

Mr. Speaker, I am advised that the former
administratiod'fii it the NRW losses in New
Providence at 50+% and left it at 50+%. No
vision and no understanding of the fact that
when your citizens are crying for water, you
cannot afford to continually waste 50% of
the precious commodity.

WATER CONSERVATION
Mr. Speaker, I embrace this opportunity to
touch briefly on the subject of water
conservation. I must caution all regarding
the wastage of potable water.To give an
example, one may ask the question -'does a
little leak in your home really waste water, or
mean anything?' The answer is yes! It is the
little leak that keeps on leaking and wastes
this important commodity. It is the little leak
that is oftentimes ignored and amounts to
gallons of wasted water. Mr.Speaker,in.
many of our toilets, these leaks can easily
translate to somewhere in the region of 22
wasted gallons per day. In annual terms
that amounts to 8,000 gallons per year - for
one toilet. Many of our homes have
multiple toilets!

More profoundly, the leaky water line
leading into your home, losing 1 gallon of
water per minute equates to potential loses
of 144 gallons per day and 52,560 gallons.
per year.


but save you long dollars. Since coming
into power, this government has spent in
excess of $7.0mn on water mains upgrades
and extensions in New Providence. This is
simply not enough as there are still many
key areas in New Providence where there
are no piped water supplies. However Mr.
Speaker, this government is in the process
of approving a strategic proposal to
complete a landmark water transmission
and distribution system upgrade and
extension programme for New Providence,
via a bond issue, to extend piped water
supplies to those areas not covered.

In the Family Islands, this government has
already completed water transmission and
distribution system upgrades and
extensions in:
* Treasure Cay, Abaco (privately owned
until recently)
*Sandy Point, Abaco
* Harbour Island, Eleuthera
*Farmers Cay, Staniel Cay and Moss Town,
Exuma

Other works in progress include:

* The replacement of storage tanks - in
Sandy Point, Abaco at a cost of $197,000,
in Mangrove Cay at a cost of $181,000,
and in The Bluff, South Andros at a cost of
$211,000, and The Bogue, Eleuthera, a
250,000 imperial gallon tank at a cost of
$583,000, for a total project value of
$1.172 million.
* The replacement of 4.5 miles of water,
mains in Central Long Island, for a total
project value of approximately $700,000.
* The extension of the water main system
in San Salvador,from Cockburn Town to
United Estates and settlements along the
way, at a total project value of $350,000.

Works scheduled to commence in the
short-term, include:

* North/West Exuma Water Improvement
Project - extension of existing system to
Rolleville, Stuart Manor, Curtis, Barratarre;
mains renewal in Central Exuma and the
installation of a RO unit and distribution
system in Williams Town. Project value of
$2.58 million,
* RO plants and water distribution systems
installation in Salina Point and Snug
Corner, Acklins and Long Cay, at a total
project value: $1.22 million.
* Long Island - extension of water mains in

Mr. Speaker, this government's objective is
not only to provide potable water and
sewerage services to all residents,, but also
to transform the Water and Sewerage
Corporation into a self-sustaining profitable
entity;

This strategy also supports the effective
involvement of Bahamians in the ownership
and management of water and wastewater
facilities, and commits the government to
ensure that the Corporation, will provide
water and wastewater services to all new
major developments. In this vein, the
Corporation is now engaged in ongoing
negotiations with Kerzner International,
Baha Mar and the South Ocean
development. Income from these
opportunities are to be leveraged to
provide capital funding for the provision of
water and wastewater services to all
Bahamian citizens and residents.,

Recognizing the soundness of this strategy,
Mr. Speaker, the government will enact the
appropriate legislation to strengthen the
Corporation's position as the provider of
choice of water and wastewater services in
The Bahamas.

WASTEWATER DELIVERY
STRATEGY
Mr. Speaker, the government is committed
to the development of a proper sewerage or
wastewater treatment model to address the
implementation of plants and facilities in
New Providence and throughout the Family
Islands.

Sewerage/wastewater, whilst perennially
listed as an area of concern for the
Corporation, was never paid proper
attention over past administrations. This
area is potentially extremely explosive and
can damage our tourism image if not
promptly addressed. One needs only look
at the inner city and the number of outside
toilets still prevalent in New Providence and
the Family Islands.


facilities and improve the state of affairs
throughout The Bahamas.
Mr. Speaker, since coming to power, this
government also completed the purchase
of the privately operated Abaco Utilities
Water & Sewerage System, a transaction
that was pending for many years. We
connected the residents of Treasure Cay to
the Corporation's water system, providing
the quality water promised for years, and
completed the initial upgrade of the
sewerage system.

Mr. Speaker, I would like to advise
Honourable Members, however, that raw
sewage was for years being discharged into
an open pond, posing a serious
environmental health hazard for the
residents of this community, however,
nothing was done to address this serious
health hazard.

Without calling names, guess who
represented this area of Abaco for almost 30
years? Who boldly told the people of North
Abaco in 2002, with chest stuck out, that it
would have been the last time he would
solicit their vote?

No names, Mr. Speaker, but I am pleased to
say that this government, will very shortly
be awarding a contract for a deep disposal
well in Treasure Cay to eliminate the
discomfort that the residents endured for
years. Thanks to their uncaring Member of
Parliament. The same individual who now
contends that Bahamians from all over our
nation want him to come back but I
understand that the message that is really
being sent from the people of his own
constituency.is -"hitthe: road jack!'

Additional sewerage works in
progress or scheduled to commence
in the short-term, include:

* The construction of a wastewater tertiary
treatment plant, off Gladstone Road, to
service Baha Mar and other developments
in the John F. Kennedy Drive/Gladstone
Road area;
*The upgrade of the Pinewood Gardens
and Flamingo Gardens wastewater
treatment plants
* Improvements to the Harrold Road
septage & sludge handling facility

SUMMARY
Mr. Speaker, this government is committed
to the development'of'the water and
wastewater sector, and the provision of
basic human services, effectively but with
minimal cost to the Bahamian people.

The Water and Sewerage Corporation has
been empowered to initiate a number of
programmes to successfully articulate this
strategy. These initiatives include:

1. The development of a new national
water & wastewater strategic plan;
2. The inclusion of a one million imperial
gallons per day NRW (leakage) reduction
programme, as a part of the Blue Hills
desalination project. This.project is now
at 30% completion.
3. The championing of anintegrated water
resource programme, to heighten the
public's awareness of the nation's water
resources and what is required to
maintain it. A necessary measure to
ensure the ongoing viability of the Water
and Sewerage Corporation and the p
protection of environmental assets.

Mr. Speaker, this government does not pay
lip service to the delivery of water and
wastewater services.This government
understands that water and development
go hand in hand, with water leading the
way. This government understands that the
provision of consistent, quality water
services to large institutional clients is the
prudent way to raise capital to deliver the
same to all residents. Most importantly Mr.
Speaker, this government is committed to
uplifting the Water and Sewerage
Corporation and liftingthe burden of
continuous subsidies and poor quality
service delivery of water and wastewater
services from the shoulders of all
Bahamians...

MUCH of the budget
debate this year, as in
times past, focused on comparing
the economic performances of the
former administration and the cur-

about whether the Ingraham or

the deficit. The budget debate also

service of a comparable value?
these e are legitimate questions
thgt should make those who serve
in government as well as those
se'rvd by the government think.
They are not political questions
because if one political party gov-
erning the country delivers better
service than the other in any given
term, it could still be true that nei-
thir provided services that either
satisfied the public or provided
tiose services in a way that
equaled the funds expended to
deliver them.
'Intuitively, I believe that most
Bahamians would say that they are
not satisfied that they are getting
their money's worth from the
amount of money spent by our
government , not now and not in
the past. I am certain that there
arg those who could say that at one
point or the other, one adminis-
tiition did a better job of deliver-
ing overall'service or certain ser-
vices. There are even those who
could say that certain government
departments have over time deliv-
ergd satisfactory service compared
tq.other government departments.
Yet, as a general rule, I believe
that Bahamians are still waiting for
the day when they could say that
they are getting for instance $1.6
billion or more worth of goods and
services from the money spent by
their government. Bringing that
day forward is a great challenge
bt not impossible. Indeed, it
si0uld be the central aim and pas-
sion of those responsible for the
general direction and control of
16e Government of The Bahamas.
S* TEN THINGS
'4 GOVERNMENT COULD
-.DO TO IMPROVE ITS
SERVICES

In the past the government
has done a number of things
to offer better service to the public.
Fpr example, the decision to allow
people to use a single plate and
license their vehicles on their birth
dates as well as renew their dri-
ver's licences for up to three years
wvas a meaningful improvement of
t tlie delivery of these services. No
pne misses those terrible long lines
. ii March every year to license vehi-
cles. The decision to enable Fami-
�yIslanders to obtain a police cer-
tificate or business licence right
from a government office on their
island s j. opposed to travel to Nas-
s au ti' dJ:, so .% as another improve-
e n i of public service delivery. We
wouldd add io such practical
improi ements by doing the fol-
]owiing-
1) Require every government
.personnel to smile with and serve
in a courteous manner members
of the public or risk being severe-
ly reprimanded;
2) Establish a customer com-
IJaint division of the Department
S(Public Personnel to address
*rJcurring complaints from mem-
Ubers of the public;
1 . 3) Allow passports to be issued
and renewed within a single day
bn competent authorities on any
S. land inr, The Bahamas;
S-11 En. sLre that domestic mail
� lakes no more than two days to be
Sdeltiered to any point in The


Bahamas and that international
mail, particularly to or from the US,
takes less than a week for delivery;
5) Ensure a single-week turn-
around for all Bahamian business
licence applications, especially
where there exists a policy that
allows for Bahamians to do any
given business;
6) Repair every dock in the
country to allow for safe mounting
and exit of sea vessels;
7) Reduce the number of sub-
jects students have to take to the
very basics and require the spe-
cialist teachers whose subjects are
dropped to use the additional time
to conduct remedial classes;
8) Boost the schools' supplies
budget to an amount that has been
comprehensively assessed as ade-
quate to ensure that every students
has the required material for learn-
ing and teachers the required
material for teaching;
.9) Transfer school construction,
repair and maintenance in total
with the annually budgeted allo-


cations to elected local govern-
ment and give elected local gov-
ernment the authority to apply an-
education levy to augment their
budget; and
10) Out source all sports, cul-
ture, youth and parks services to a
government-subsidised indepen-
dent national authority.
.There are those who might ask
why the same was not done when
I was in government. Well, the fact
is that they were not done; other
good things were done. In the
interest of making progress, if
these ideas have any merit they
should be done, either by those
who are there now or those who
will replace them.
Improving the government's
delivery of service should not be a
partisan affair, though at election
time parties can put forth their
proposals for doing so. We should
all have an interest in finding ways
to make certain that we get as
much out of public expenditure as
we can possibly get. This would
make it a national passion.

Alumni make donation



to COB library fund


1 HE College of the Bahamas
Alumni Association has donated
$- 000 to the construction fund for
the Harry C Moore Library - a facil-
ity which will be central to the Uni-
'versity of The Bahamas academi-
cally and architecturally.
The donation came through the
Alumni Gifts for Advancement pro-
ject, a fund-raising initiative that was
launched in March 2006 by COB's
Office of Alumni Affairs, and
endorsed by the members of the
Alumni Hall of Fame.


The College of the Bahamas is
currently in a phase of physical
expansion, which is placing new
demands on the institution's bud-
get.
In order to assist, the Alumni
Association has pledged to continue
its work with the Office of Alumni
Affairs to bring COB alumni togeth-
er to benefit their alma mater, par-
ticularly in the area of fund-raising.
The annual Alumni Hall of Fame
-induction luncheon is the major
fundraiser for the Association.


The Association is also appeal-
ing to all alumni to get involved in
the Alumni Gifts for Advancement
project, which allow alumni to con-
tribute toward the development of
their alma mater with a pledge as
low as $19.74 per annum. The other
pledge contributions can be $197.40
or $1,974.00- 1974 representing the
birth year of COB.
The Alumni Association has
pledged its commitment to the con-
tinued growth and development of
The College of The Bahamas.

Is it time to buy?


THINKING of buying a
home, but feel bewildered by
conflicting reports about the
state of real estate? Well,
you're certainly not alone, but
in a word, relax!
Whether or not real estate is
up, down or sideways, most
people don't make their pur-
chase decisions based on mar-
ket conditions. Rather, it has
more to do with lifestyle.
For most people, a home is
very much like a "durable
good," similar to a washing
machine.
Sounds silly, but think of it
this way: When you need a
new washer, your decision is
based on that requirement,
and you search for a machine
that offers good value and
service. You don't think

made out of necessity and not
out of a desire to turn your
property into a cash cow.
You get the greatest value
out of your home by simply liv-
ing in it, and as.long as you can
continue to make mortgage

Speaking with your BREA

BTVI to receive


e on road


to college status


THE Bahamas Technical
an d Vocational Institute is to
be upgraded and restructured
in a bid to propel to propel
the BTV1 to modern college
status.
Parliamentary secretary in
the Ministry of Immigration,
Labour and Training, Agatha
Marcel said a private partner -
the Grand Bahama Shipyard -
is ready to assist in the
improvement of BTVI in
Grand Bahama.
Speaking at BTVI's pre-
technology awards luncheon,
Ms Marcel said, "The govern-
ment has entered into a loan
agreement with the Interna-
tional Development Bank to
upgrade and restructure BTVI
to really make it a state of the
art technical and vocational
college. The loan has been.
approved and everything is
really just about ready to go."
She added: "We intend to
push BTVI (Bahamas Tech-
nical and Vocational Institute)
to higher levels, and we are
:going to do that, and do that
Here; not to make it just an
institution, but a college".

Youth
Ms Marcel said that the
Bahamas has not, to date,
been able to keep pace with
the amount of technically
skilled people needed to sup-
port our economy. And she
added, "When we consider
that we are looking at an
unemployment rate of some
10.2 per cent, it lets me know
that we have to invest in the
young people, to make them
skilled to be able to take care
of their country.
S . "I want to tell you, young
people, that your Grand
Bahama, in spite of the adver-
sities, still has the lowest
unemployment rate among
men, at 8.3 per cent as of the
2005 statistics.
Ms Marcel said: "I tell you
there will be a lot of opportu-
nities for you. But I want to
caution you. Don't believe
that you have to stay pinned
here to Freeport and Grand
Bahama. There are many oth-
er beautiful islands of The
Bahamas, and as the oppor-
tunities come up, if they are
not here, be mindful that you
can go to other islands to work
and make a wonderful life if
you don't want to be here or if
the opportunities are.-' here.
"Today youth make up
most of the unemployed work
force through out :he world -
not only in the Bahamas. The
Secretary General of the Unit-
ed Nations, Kofi Annan,
talked about it in a recent
address when he suggested:
'One of the things that can
happen to alleviate this prob-
lem is to pay attention to tech-
nical and vocational education
and apprenticeship training "'

Hun2 iurv in murder trial NHI in 2 years'


US


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT - The 12 jurors in the mur-
der trial of Ian Knowles failed to return a
unanimous guilty verdict on Wednesday,
resulting in a hung jury.
After hours of deliberations that ended
sometime around 7pm, the jury of three
men and nine woman returned an improp-
er 10-2 guilty verdict.
Justice Stephen Isaacs told Knowles that
in order for him to be found guilty of mur-
derithe vote must be unanimous.
He also explained that because the vote
was not a specific number he could not be
acquitted of murder, resulting in a hung
jury.


In toc..


Low Monthly
Payments


Justice Isaacs said the prosecution has
the option of bringing Knowles back. for
retrial.
Knowles, a resident of Abaco, is accused
of the murder of Jermaine Thompson in
April 2004. Thompson was stabbed 12 times
about the body.
His body, which was found floating in a
blue hole, was bound in duct tape and
chains. A concrete block was also tied to
his feet.
Knowles, who was represented by lawyer
Carlson Shurland and Jameko Greene, will
remain on bail.
Prosecutor Vernal Collie, assisted by
Eurika Charlton, was disappointed with the
verdict, but indicated that the accused man
would have to be retried.

He said that Private health insurers could
sometimes be discriminatory and unfair.
Along with the National Health Insur-

enhance the public health care system across

"This includes the reorientation of health
services with increased emphasis on prima-

availability of accurate and timely informa-
tion for decision making at all levels of the
service...construction and renovation of

Minister: Securities Act





'woefully inadequate'


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
The Securities Industry Act,
the law that regulates the
Bahamian capital markets
and investment funds sec-
tor, is being almost entirely replaced
with new legislation because it is
"woefully inadequate", the minister of
state for finance said yesterday.
James Smith told The Tribune that
the Government had discussed the'
first draft of the new Act with the
Canadian consultant hired to develop
the legislation, and was now await-
ing the revised version to be present-
ed to it.
"I would anticipate that in another
month or two they will have the final
draft to present to the Government,"
Mr Smith said.
The Bahamian capital markets


* JAMES SMITH

industry has long called for the Secu-
rities Industry Act to be reformed,
arguing that it 'lacks teeth' in terms, of
the regulatory and enforcement pow-
'ers provided to the Securities Com-
mission of the Bahamas.
In addition, the industry believes
-the existing Act fails to provide ade-
quate protection and safeguards for
minority shareholder rights, and is
not tough enough to compel Bahami-
an publicly-listed companies when
making disclosures on material events
or changes..
Mr Smith agreed with those posi-
tions yesterday, when he said the


amendments were designed to "mod-
ernise" the Securities Industry Act
and bring it into line with interna-
tional standards and best practices.
Referring to the Securities Com-
mission, Mr Smith said: "The Act it
operates under is woefully inade-.
quate. It has to use a lot of moral sua-
sion to get compliance."
The new Act will focus on areas
such as corporate governance of
Bahamian-listed companies, and seek
to upgrade market transparency and
timely disclosures to shareholders,
particularly where material changes
.occur. These issues have been per-


ceived as key capital markets weak-
nesses.
Currently, under the Bahamas
International Securities Exchange's
(BISX) market rules, companies only
have to disclose material changes
once they have actually taken place
and been consummated. Critics have
argued that this often allows 'inside
information' to swish around the mar-
ket prior to an announcement.
Mr Smith said the amendments to
the Securities Industry Act would also

Guana Cay developers win latest court battle Regulatory fears delay


I By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE Court of Appeal yesterday dis-
missed an application by opponents of the
$175 million Guana Cay development to
appeal to the Privy Council the decision to
allow the developers to resume work on
the project.
The Save Guana Cay Reef Association,
and its attorney, Fred Smith, had sought to
appeal the Court of Appeal's decision that-
relieved the Baker's Bay Golf & Ocean
Club developers, Discovery Land Com-
pany, of their November 2005 undertaking
not to do any new work on the project.
However, the Court of Appeal dis-
missed the leave application and the Asso-
ciation's application for an injunction
against both the Government and the
developers. * I
The Court of Appeal described the
Association's application as being with-
out merit, and ordered it to pay costs


worth $18,000. The court also criticised
the Association for attempting to litigate
the issue through the media.
Michael Barnett, the Graham, Thomp-
son & Co partner who is attorney for the
developers, said in a statement: "There is
no legal impediment to the developers
continuing with their development, which
is based upon the principle of utmost
respect to the environment."
"We feel satisfied that justice has been
served and will be served, in the future,"
said Steve Adelson, a partner in Discov-
ery Land Company.
"Baker's Bay will be a model develop-
ment for the Bahamas from an economical
and environmental prospect ie.:
"We are excited about what the future
will hold. The 120 Bahamians we employ
are back to work with a renewed and
restored confidence."
Discovery Land Company resumed
work on Great Guana Cay on June 1 fol-
lowing the Court of Appeal verdict that


relieved it of the undertaking given on
November 22, 2005, in which it promised
not to do any more work at the develop-
ment site.
It gave the undertaking on condition
that the legal action being brought by the
Association, which is attempting to stop
the development, be heard on its merits in
the Supreme Court by the end of January
2006.
After several delays, Acting Justice Nor-
ris Carroll heard the trial on the substan-
tive issues in February, but has yet to deliv-
er his verdict.oAs a result, Discovery Land
Company successfully appealed to the
Court of Appeal last month that its inter-
ests were being harmed by the. length of
time being taken to decide the Supreme
Court case.
The Association's latest appeal, defeat-
ed yesterday, resulted from concern that

insurance legislation

tic Insurance Act because it feels the sector's regulator does not
yet have the capacity to adequately administer and oversee it, the
minister of state for finance said yesterday.
James Smith told The Tribune that while the Act's implemen-
tation only now required the Government to say what day it

How to make paper management easier


IT is currently an excellent
time to purchase document
management software. Mar-
ket trends, and a renewed
small and midsize business
focus by vendors, have made
document management more
affordable and the choices
more plentiful.
In the past, small and mid-
size businesses were restricted
in their choice between niche
vendors with limited func-
tionality or lprge vendors with
deep functionality that were
too expensive or too complex.
However, in the last couple of
years, technology providers
have been working to capi-
talise on the market for easy-
to-use and low-cost document
management tools. Now, small
and midsize businesses can
purchase comprehensive solu-


tions that have been specifi-
cally designed for their mar-
ket.
Document
The need for document
management is just as great
in small and midsize compa-
nies as it is in large organisa-
tions. A well-designed and
effectively implemented 'doc-
ument management solution
can save workers' time and
increase user efficiency. It can
also help streamline business
processes and decrease the
risk of lost documents.
Today's document manage-
ment solutions are far more
than just managing images of
documents.
These solutions provide
tremendous efficiency gains


by allowing companies to cap-
ture, store and retrieve paper-
based and electronic docu-
ments into one system. With a
document management sys-

The ease-of-use factor is an
important consideration in
small and midsize businesses
who do not have a depth of
IT knowledge in-house. Doc-

are now developed with the
business user in mind: if some-
one can make a photocopy or
send a fax, that person can
scan and initiate the document
management process.
Given that small and mid-

their resources to deploy and
manage document manage-

should determine which doc-

Family Islands



are 'challenge'



for timeshares


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Business
Reporter
at the Carribean Hotel
Industry Confernece
MIAMI, Florida - The
Government was praised yes-
terday for being more support-
ive of the timeshare industry
through bringing its incentives
regime in line with that for
hotels, with one executive
telling The Tribune that the
Bahamian industry's main chal-
lenge now was finding suitable
sites for development.
David Callaghan, vice-presi-
dent of the eastern region for
Interval International, said that
in the past, a major problem
for the industry was the fact
that the Bahamian government
did not offer timeshare and
fractional use developers the
same incentives they gave to
hotels.
"The incentives for time-
shares were just not there. So if
you were bringing in furniture
or appliances for a hotel, you
got a batch of incentives and
development grants that you
didn't get if you were building a
timeshare," Mr Callaghan said.
"That is changed. It seems like
government is being support-
ive of the industry "
Mr Callaghan predicted the


Bahamas will remain a very big
market for his company.
"The Atlantis Harborside
resort has been a phenomenal
success and a great affiliate,
providing our members a fabu-
lous vacation experience," he
added.
"So we continue to see and
expect sales in the Bahamas to
be vibrant and strong, given the
close proximity to the United
States.
"Just in the last decade, the
regeneration of the entire
tourism product of 'the
Bahamas has been amazing,
and so we have nowhere close
to the amount of product we
need in the market and would
be very bullish of future devel-
opment."
Mr Callighan said the chal-
lenge for the Bahamas becomes
where to develop future time-
share properties.
"Because there is not a whole
lot left]. If you look at Paradise
Island and Nassau, there is not
a whole lot, so people will be
looking at Freeport," Mr
Callaghan said.
"It will be very challenging
to do a regular timeshare deal
in the Out Islands, and a lot of
people have talked about it
because basically timeshare is
marketed towards people, who
walk through a resort. It would


be very tough to do that in the
Out Islands."
He added that regionally,
growth is expected in the mar-
ket,' especially considering the
fact that most of Florida's
coastline is developed, leaving
little room for additional prop-
erties.
Mr Callaghan said countries
stand to gain more economi-
cally by having timeshare devel-
opments, as opposed to persons
buying a second home, which
is why his company pushes for
government-industry coopera-
tion.
"You can build and sell a
condominium for $1.5 million.
If the person who buys that
condominium comes to your
destination on his private jet
and stays there two weeks per
year, it's really not a whole lot
of economic benefit for the des-
tination," Mr Callaghan said.
"So, with a timeshare you've
got different consumers each
week and they do all the things
that contribute to the economy
of the region."
He said 14 per cent of US
consumers are actively consid-
ering purchasing a vacation
ownership interest, and of that
14 per cent, over 20 per cent of
those persons cite the Car-
ribean as their number one des-
tination of choice.

'Expatriate bonanza' via education


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE education system's defi-
ciencies mean that the Bahamas'
projected economic growth will
create a "bonanza for expatriate
employees", with an FNM Sena-


tor warning that Bahamians lack
the skills to benefit from these
investment projects as much as
they should.
In his contribution to the Sen-
ate's Budget debate, John
Delaney described the education
system as "perhaps the single'

ic welfare and well-being of
Bahamians , quesuoning how this
nation's worker could successful-
ly compete in the "global mar-
ketplace".
Although education account-
ed for $236 million or 17.1 per
cent of the 2006-2007 Budget allo-
cation, the gross sum being a 9.8
per cent rise over the previous
year, Mr Delaney described it as
"a seriously inadequate system

The Higgs & Johnson attorney

ing state of affairs should resonate
with all of us in this place. Con-
sider how our own circumstances

Agreements for foreign direct
investment towards delivering
jobs, without giving adequate
attention to preparing our young
people to exploit the job oppor-
tunities that are promised to
come?"
Mr Delaney said the education
system's failure to properly pre-
pare Bahamian youth to enter the
workforce meant that there were
not enough qualified Bahamians,
with the correct skills, to meet
the labour demands of the various
investment projects.
As a result, the Bahamas would
have to increasingly import skilled
expatriate labour to meet the
needs of developers.
Mr Delaney said: "If the Gov-
ernment's projections and
promises are correct, the country
would have given substantial
financial concessions and
favourable land deals'to produce
a bonanza for expatriate employ-
ees. That means Bahamians
wouid benefit far less than, with
preparation, we could have and
ought to.'
' He added that failing to pro,-
duce an adequate education sys-
tem was "too great a price for the
welfare of our people", and the
Government was urged to study
the 14 recommendations outlined
in the report published last year
by the Coalition for Education
Reform - thq coalition of employ-
er and trade union groups.
"A qualitative increase in the
results of the educational system
- the production of better pre-
pared and skilled young people, is
essential for our economy and the
welfare of our people," Mr
Delaney said.
He urged the Government to
consider providing tax incentives
for Bahamian businesses, partic-
ularly where Bahamians were
using developed land in New
Providence.
Mr Delaney suggested pairing
"a real property tax exemption
with duty free exemptions "in


failings


appropriate cases" on material
imports. He suggested this could|
be used as a tool to stimulate ce-
tain commercial and economy
activities by Bahamians; for ca-
ital creation; and to achieve social
objectives. I
Mr Delaney added that the rea
property tax exemption could
similar to that for Bahamian-ow-
er or occupied residnetial prop I
erty, where the first $250,000 w4
exempt from real property tax.$
"That tax incentive may
used to encourage development,
redevelopment and gentrification
of certain areas of the island
(especially the inner city area,,
as may be targeted by Goveri
ment," he said."

Targeted

While the Governnmei had .i, ,
geted the provision of a.lr ab
housing for Bahamians as a 'ii
ority, the FNM Senator',Jl .
tioned why private sector parti-
ipation had not been stimulate,
as opposed to the spending
public funds. *
Mr Delaney said: "With .1,
price of land and c(in.r .U.i
being very costly, ,-. Pi -
dence in particular, thi. . ir. L.
possibilities for making the P[.-
duction of rental units m.n-I.
affordable for the Bahamia^i
needing to rent.
"By means of a tax incentive
and other assistance, which miglt
even be in the nature of technical
assistance, the Government coutl
encourage the development Jr
affordable housing and evea
influence the standard of suc'
housing by establishing criteria
for eligibility of the exemption.j
"A tax incentive may be ai
effective tool to ameliorate thl
housing issue, stimulate thI
regeneration of decaying urbar
areas of the island and encou -
age the construction businesS,
employment, and capital deve-
opment by Bahamians." .

which makes him a resource
for just about 'everything' for
employees and guests of the
property. We are extremely
proud of his achievement and
recognition."
"We are thrilled to see that
one of our finest has received
this regional distinction" said
Bahamas Hotel Association
(BHA) president Earle
Bethell, who is attending the
conference along with a large
delegation of hotel and allied
members from BHA.
"Raymond epitomises the
highest ideals and commitment
to excellence for our industry,
and we offer him our whole-
hearted congratulations."
Mr Lowe began working at
the Green Turtle Club part-
time as a dockhand at the age
of 12. He was supervised by
his father, Bertram Lowe, who
was a great inspiration.
Native
His father, along with Green
Turtle native Earklin McIn-
tosh, provided him with a
sound foundation and under-
standing of how to be a 'jack of
all trades'.
The skills Mr Lowe has


acquired and honed are end-
less, having become proficient
in carpentry, plumbing, elec-
trical work, painting and tile
laying. He has witnessed the
Green Turtle Club marina
transformed from one with
only 12 slips, to one that now.
boasts 38 slips, all which he�^
helped to construct by hand.
Instrumental ,
Mr Lowe has been instru-
mental in the construction of
new rooms and the pool refur-
bishment, and overseas the
plant and maintenance opera-
tion for the property's reverse
osmosis system.
In addition to his manual
duties, Raymond has a hand
in the administrative duties at
the resort. He carries out the
ordering of, supplies for the
restaurant, conducts the food
and beverage inventory, and
assists with other administra-
tive functions.
His award follows his dis-
tinction earlier this year when
he received the Cacique
Award for Supervisor of the
Year, presented by the
Bahamas Hotel Association
and the Ministry of Tourism.

Court case.
Dispute
The dispute between the
developers and Association
over the Baker's Bay invest-
ment project has raised a host
of issues relating to this
nation's processes for approv-


ing major investment projects.
Apart from consultation
with local populations and
Nassau imposing its vision for
the development of the
Bahamas on areas that may
not want major projects, the
controversy has also highlight-
ed the need for a National
Land Use policy and the leas-
ing of Crown and Treasury
land to developers.
Some 105 acres of Crown
Land and 20 acres of Treasury
Land are being leased to the
developers at what the Gov-
ernment describes as "normal
commercial terms".

THE TRIBUNE


Businesses urged to review


private health schemes


FROM page 1B

merce's annual general meeting
(AGM) that when NHI became
the primary health insurance
carrier in this nation, Bahamian
businesses would have less need
for private plans for their
employees, and the costs that
went with it.
He suggested that Bahamians
would use private health insur-
ance as a supplement to NHI,
employing it for dental and opti-
cal treatment, and for restricted
overseas coverage.
Dr Nottage said that with pri-
vate health insurance carriers
adjusting their plans to "wrap
around" NHI, the cost of pri-
vate insurance would become
"substantially lower" than now.
As a further carrot to entice
the Bahamian business commu-
nity to back the NHI scheme,
Dr Nottage said the net effect
of NHI and a reduction in pri-
vate health insurance costs could
result in businesses incurring
lower insurance premium costs.
"NHI, we believe, is so impor-
tant that it shouldn't be delayed
any longer," Dr Nottage said,
adding that the scheme was not
10 years, five years or even two
years away from implementa-
tion.
Acknowledging that NHI
would "require certain legisla-
tive changes", Dr Nottage said:
"These are not one year away,
six months away or three months
away."
He warned that the "final con-
sultation process is going to be
intense" and that business
organizations and individual
companies should be very
responsive to feedback requests,
"because we're on a short time-
frame".
Dr Nottage dropped a heavy
hint that the Government would
seek to pass and implement NHI
before the next general election,
likely due in 2007, as "we really
don't want it to be a political
football in and around the elec-
tion". It is understood that the
officials working on NHI hope
to be finished by December-end.
While stirring, the minister's
address avoided some of the
most pressing concerns sur-
rounding the NHI plan. For


example, he did not address the
fact that the Government's own
Blue Ribbon Commission report
on NHI said the scheme was
"not feasible" with the National
Insurance Board's (NIB) admin-
istrative costs running above 10
per cent.
NIB would administer the
NHI scheme, yet its current
administrative costs are more
than 20 per cent of contributions,
making it increasingly unfeasi-
ble despite the Government's
enthusiasm.
In addition, Dr Nottage did
not say whether the Govern-
ment had conducted an assess-
ment of the economic impact
NHI would have on this nation,
and whether it would further
harm economic competitiveness
and reduce disposable income.
Nor did the minister explain
why NHI could work in the
Bahamas when it has failed in
several developed countries,
notable the UK and Canada.
Dr Nottage said there was
"some justification" for scepti-
cism about the $235 million total
cost placed upon NHI by the
Government.
The Cabinet had engaged
International Labour Organisa-
tion (ILO) actuaries to conduct
a review of the economic calcu-
lations, based on the package of
benefits NHI proposed to offer,
population demographics and
state of the economy.
While the ILO had not spo-
ken directly to the $235 million
figure, Dr Nottage said they had
concluded that the calculated
contributions from the working
population - 5.3 per cent of
monthly earned income - was
sufficient to "fund the system
for the foreseeable future".
However, he acknowledged
that contribution levels may
have to be increased over time.
Under the proposed plan,
NHI would be funded by
employees, who would con-
tribute 2.65 per cent of their
monthly earnings through pay-
roll deductions. Employers
would contribute an equal 2.65
per cent amount, making pay-
ments equivalent to 5.3 per cent
of an individual worker's wages.
Self-employed workers would
be required to pay the full 5.3
per cent.


NHI would be capped at
$5,000 per month, compared to
the National Insurance Board
(NIB), which is capped at $400
per week.
Dr Nottage added that bene-
fits in the NHI scheme would be
based "on the cost of providing
services in the public system".
Private sector health practition-
ers often levied higher charges
than in the public sector, and the
minister said that patients would
have to pay the difference
between the two under NHI.
Pointing to healthcare chal-
lenges in the Bahamas, Dr Not-
tage said that in 2003 some 26
per cent of Bahamian adults had
high blood pressure; 17 per cent
diabetes; and 66 per cent were
obese. Cancer and mental ill-
nesses were also at unacceptable
levels.
Some $60 million per year in
government money was spent
on treating high blood pressure
and diabetes, Dr Nottage said,
while 45 per cent of all deaths
were due to preventable, non-
communicable diseases.
"There is a situation we have
in Abaco today. The economy
has grown tremendously, and we
simply do not have the health
services in place to meet the
needs of the community," Dr
Nottage said.
"The same is happening in
Exuma, where we are struggling
to provide services."
Under NHI, Dr Nottage said
Bahamians and legal residents
would be able to seek care
through both the private and
public sectors. 'Smart cards'
would be issued to NHI mem-
bers, and an "online real-time
claims processing" system would
settle all insurance claims quick-
ly, eliminating unpaid bills and
collectibles.
Yet while few would argue
that something needs to be done
about providing the poor and
indigent with access to afford-
able healthcare, many are con-
vinced that NHI is not the way
to go.
Several have suggested that
the Government should look at
what was being studied under
the former FNM administration,
namely a catastrophic health
insurance scheme under ILO
auspices.

mnire flexibility for oversight",
'and address information shar-
ing with overseas regulators.
re! :He added that sections in the
'revised Act would also address
the protection of all consumers
-ad investors, including minor-
.ty, shareholders.
'-.Among the features to pro-
,teet minority shareholders are
clauses that insist the same
rerms be offered to them in
cases where there is a change
ih the company's majority
ownership, as happened with
the recent Bahamas Super-
markets transaction.
-There, Winn-Dixie's 78 per
cent stake in Bahamas Super-
markets has been acquired by
investor group BSL Holdings
for $54 million, with the minor-
ity'shareholders excluded from
a transaction that is due to
close in about 45-60 days.
,'In the Bahamas, apart from
there being no competition

,Tribune understands there are

rently regulating takeovers of
public companies, particularly
those with large majority
stakes.

SAs a result, in the case of the

*,Apart from the delay in
i-plementing the Domestic

several times during the then

ters sent out by Imperial and
Colina regarding the transfer
of'policyholder liabilities from
the former to Colina.
Critics said the letters


these events, and a Code that
governs public company
takeovers. One rule is that
when someone has acquired
30 per cent of a public compa-
ny, that investor is then com-
pelled to make an offer to all
remaining shareholders to
acquire their holdings, too.

Companies

Many Bahamian companies-
listed on BISX, though, have a
majority shareholder or a
group of controlling share-
holders that own well in excess
of 50 per cent of the outstand-
ing share capital.
Minority shareholder pro-
tection is an issue that has risen
to the forefront in the Bahami-
an capital markets on several.
occasions. The first time it rose
to public prominence was over
CIBC's 2002 rights issue to
acquire Barclays and create
FirstCaribbean (Bahamas),
when the $6.10 offer price
almost halved the value of
investor holdings, being well
below the prevailing market
price.
More recent minority
investor concerns have
involved Colina Holdings
(Bahamas), the holding vehicle
for Colinalmperial Insurance
Company, after the 2004 finan-
cial audit raised concerns
about the company's corporate
governance and the amount of
money being taken out by its
majority shareholder, the Col-
ina Financial Group (CF'G).

ity investors are currently keen
to know the nature and extent
of the company's investment
in BSL Holdings, how it is
being financed, and the
prospects of a future tie-uip

ignored the concept of nova-
tion. Since Imperial Life was
a branch, not a subsidiary of
its Canadian parent, novation
would apply, meaning that a
liability cannot be transferred
to a third party without the
consent of whom it is owed to
- Imperial Life's 29,000 poli-
cyholders.
Both companies needed the
express written consent of the
policyholder to effect this.
Yet a December 2003 letter
sent out by Imperial Life,
which the company said was
approved by the insurance reg-
ulator, sought to invoke an
"assumed consent" for the
transfer if replies were not
received by year-end.
Dr Roger Brown, the Regis-
trar of Insurance, later admit-
ted that his office approved the
Imperial Life letter and its dis-
patch before full details of the
acquisition were known, rais-
ing questions about whether
the regulator was fulfilling its
obligation to protect policy-
holders.
Meanwhile, Mr Smith said
yesterday that the External
Insurance Act was still being
prepared. He added: "I sus-
pect that it could be passed
before the year is out."

Soca


Warriors leading the


way for Caribbean soccer


FIFA World Cup soc-
cer fever has hit the
Bahamas.
Just about everywhere you
go, people have been glued to
the television watching the
month-long elite sports spec-
tacular in Germany.
Bahamians in particular
were following the progress
of the Soca Warriors from
Trinidad & Tobago before
they were eliminated from
Group B by Sweden.
The twin isles were one of
the 32 countries participating
on the world's biggest stage
in soccer. They were also the
lone representative from the
Caribbean.
While many would have
preferred to see the Soca War-
riors score a goal, the fact that
they held the Scandinavians
to a goalless draw, speaks vol-
umes for what the future of
the sport holds throughout the
Caribbean.
The Bahamas may not have
reached that plateau yet, but
the Bahamas Football Asso-
ciation, through its vibrant
youth programme, is getting
to that point.
From a national perspective,
it's interesting to note what
the Soca Warriors have
received by helping to cata-
pult Trinidad & Tobago into
the global spotlight.
How does $1 million
($165,000) each for the 24-
member squad from Prime
Minister Patrick Manning's
Government sound?
Add the Chaconia Medal
Gold - the second highest
national award - to their col-
lection, and it's more than a
just reward for the Soca War-
riors who played in three
matches and were shutout in
each one.
Manning handed out the
awards and financial rewards
totaling close to $31 million
to the team during a national

rally at the Hasely Crawford
Stadium on Saturday for their
historic feat as only the sec-

Caribbean team behind
Jamaica (1998) to qualify for a
spot in the prestigious World
Cup.
Not bad when one considers
the fact that when our Golden
Girls sat on top of the world,
winning the women's 4 x 100
metre relay gold medal at the
Olympic Games in Sydney,
Australia in 2000, they col-
lected. sizeable beachfront
land grants, $40,000 each and
commemorative gold medals.
Together, the Golden Girls
earnings were no where near
what one Soca Warrior
received.
Many would say that
Trinidad & Tobago'could eas-
ily afford the lofty rewards
because of the National Lot-
tery that they have in place.

Many have called for a

Maybe it will be in time,
considering the fact that our

are not as generously reward-

Then there is the issue that


we are not reaching our full

because we are not spending

A.STRUGGLE between two of the bottom-feed-
ers in-the ladies division of the New Providence
Softball Association produced the most electrify-
ing game of the night.
The DHL Brackettes defeated the Briteley's
Angels in a nail biting one run game, that needed
extra innings before they picked up the 10-9 win.
. With the win, the Brackettes were able to improve
to a 2-7 record and into a tie for fifth place with
the Angels.
The Brackettes jumped out early, setting the tone
offensively in the early innings.
They scored three runs in the first and added
another two in the second.
The Angels responded with three runs in the sec-
ond inning and it would become a see-saw battle
throughout the night.
Both teams mirrored each other throughout the
next three innings, going scoreless in the third, scor-
ing two runs each in the fourth, and two runs each in
the fifth.
In the 7th inning, the Brackettes were finally able
to pull away and produce the deciding run.
The statistics portray how evenly the matchup
was played, the Brackettes won by one run, the
Angels had one more hit, and the Brackettes had
one more error.

* By MARCY GORDON
AP Business Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) - A
former government attorney
told congress on Wednesday
that he was fired last summer
after he tried to subpoena a
prominent Wall Street execu-
tive to testify in an insider-trad-


ing investigation of a major
hedge fund.
Attorney Gary Aguirre, who
led the Securities and
Exchange Commission's inves-
tigation into Pequot Capital
Management Inc., said he was

tive had "very powerful politi-
cal connections."
The SEC was investigating
whether the hedge fund had
received a tip from an individ-
ual about an upcoming merger.
"By mid-June, growing evi-
dence pointed to one person,
the former CEO of a large
investment bank," Aguirre said
in written testimony to the
Senate Judiciary Committee.
Under questioning by com-
mittee members, he identified
the executive as John Mack,
who is the chairman and chief
executive of investment house
Morgan Stanley Inc.
Morgan Stanley, one of the
largest U.S. securities firms,


said Aguirre had provided no
evidence to support his allega-
tion against Mack. "No one
has provided any evidence that
Mr.. Mack has engaged in any
wrongdoing and Mr. Aguirre
provided none today," firm
spokeswoman Jeanmarie
McFadden said from New
York.
Influential
Mack is an influential Wall
Street figure and a major
fundraiser for President Bush's
campaigns. At the time in
question, he was chief execu-
tive of Credit Suisse First
Boston.
The committee is looking
into problems involving the
growing hedge fund industry,
which commands trillions of
dollars in assets and is believed
to account for as much as 20
percent of all U.S. stock trad-
ing.
In his written testimony,
Aguirre said the person he
called "the suspected tipper"
likely knew in advance about a
merger offer, likely spoke with
Pequot's CEO just before he
began to trade, "and had other
personal and financial motives
for tipping the hedge fund's
CEO."
The attorneys allegation
"raises questions about the
propriety of what the SEC has
done," said Sen. Arlen Specter,
R-Pa., chairman of the judi-
ciary panel.
Aguirre also said the SEC
had told him he would risk vio-
lating the law by testifying on
the matter because details of a
pending investigation could be
made public.
More broadly, he- said, the
SEC and the Justice Depart-


ment are failing in their duty to
protect investors in the grow-
ing hedge fund industry and
haven't adequately prosecut-
ed fraud and manipulation.
"Fixing the SEC so it can
protect investors and capital
markets from hedge fund
abuse will not be an easy task,"
Aguirre said in his written tes-
timony. "Powerful interests
want the SEC to stay just the
way it is or, better yet, to
become even weaker."
SEC officials have denied
Aguirre's allegation of political
influence, and they say it is
against their policy to discuss
personnel matters.
Attorney General Richard
Blumenthal of Connecticut
urged the senators to regulate
hedge funds, the high-risk
investment pools that tradi-
tionally served the very
wealthy but are increasingly
luring ordinary investors.
Appeals
A federal appeals court deci-
sion Friday overturning the.
SEC's new regulation of hedge
funds has left them in "a regu-
latory black hole," Blumenthal
testified at Wednesday's hear-
ing.
"Federal action is profound-
ly preferable ... but the states
must fill the void if Congress
fails to act," he said.
At the same time, SEC reg-
ulators have seen an upswing


in fraud among hedge funds,
and the agency has been bring-
ing more enforcement cases
against them - charging fund
managers with defrauding
investors of a total exceeding
$1 billion in the last five years.
Allegations
In addition to Aguirre's alle-
gations, the Judiciary Corn-
mittee also is examining the
case of Demetrios Anifantisa
former employee of a research
firm, who has accused the firm
of colluding with its hedge fund
clients to issue biased research
reports on companies. Anifaa-
tis was fired from his job.-at
Camelback Research Alliance,
which now is called Gradient
Analytics Inc. ',
Mack, the Morgan Stanley
chief, is a longtime investor in
Pequot and a friend of its
founder. He served briefly last
year as the hedge fund's chair
man.
No charges have been
brought against Pequot,,,a
hedge fund with some $6.5 bilr
lion in assets that is overseen
by Arthur Samberg, a well-
known money manager and
philanthropist. .
Pequot has denied that there
was any improper activity:by
the fund. The SEC investigate
tion of the fund and Aguirre's
accusations were first reported
Friday by The New York
Times. i'

FIFA won't relax

despite record

wave of red and

yellow cards

E SOCCER
FIANKFURT, Germany
Associated Press
WHOEVER wins the
Wokld Cup, one definite loser
will' be soccer's battered image
of fair play.
A record number of red
cards, including four in one
game and three in the first 46
mirntes of another, suggests
t he e is something fundamen-
t.,llk % wrong with the world's
most popular sport, although
FIFA president Sepp Blatter
has ripped the referees for
mistakes and inconsistencies.
"I've noted that instructions
aren't being followed consis-
tently from one match to
another," he said Wednesday.
"When a coach complains to
me that shirt-pulling earned
his player a yellow card one
night and nothing for his
team's group rivals the next,
how am I supposed to
respond?
"And then there are the
tackles from behind I've seen
go unpunished and the violent
conduct that has escaped sanc-
tioti, not to mention the seri-
ous errors made in applying
the-rules."
Referees will again be in the
spotlight at the World Cup
quarterfinals - Germany-
Argentina and Italy-Ukraine
on Friday, England-Portugal
and Brazil-France on Satur-
day.
It's not just the scything
tackles, deliberate handballs,
flying elbows, players feigning
injury or diving to get penal-
ties or opponents sent off.
There are all the other ugly
codiponents of foul play: shirt
tugging, sly trips, ankle taps,
bodR checks made to look like
accidental collisions. A sinister
recent trend is a player going
down, apparently injured,
while his opponents are
attacking. The attacking team
is honor bound to kick the ball
out of play while the downed
player gets' treatment. , . ,,
The pushing and shoving
that happens at free kicks and
corners also suggests the game
is getting out of control.
Usually, such tactics don't
warrant a yellow card. But
they still happen and many
critics say they are poisoning
the game.
Maybe there's a way of
weeding thdm out.
One suggestion is for a team
to automatically lose a player
when it reaches 20 fouls in a
game. It would be up to the
coach to decide who goes. At
30 fouls, another player would
leave the field.
While that may seem unfair
to a player who has been
scrupulously clean and has not
made a single foul, how about
this for making up the coach's
.mind: If an individual player
Sha made five fouls, he gets a
yellow card. That puts him on
warning that the next time he
commits a serious foul, he will
ber8ff anyway. If the coach
4hs'o make up his mind who
shpild be ejected, he might be
more likely to choose his dirti-
est player.
FI'FA says such an idea has
been considered and rejected,
neier getting as far as the
international board, soccer's
rulesmaking panel.
'We have had proposals of
this type, but they just don't
add up," said spokesman
Ahdreas Herren. He said it
would put even more pressure
on'the referee to keep count
of all the fouls, then decide
whether the next one warrants
a red card for a player.
The persistent foul play at
this World Cup - one called
every 2 1/2 minutes - may
prompt soccer's governing
bodies to look at the laws and
clean up the game. But FIFA
says the rules already are good
enough. The players were
warned long ago and don't
seem to be listening.
Portuguese striker Pauleta,
who saw two teammates and
two Dutchmen sent off in a 1-
0 victory over the Nether-


lands, said official statistics for
fouls in that game did not jus-
tify the wave of cards on his
team.
"I think the referees have
been excessive in showing yel-
-low,cards because of FIFA's
pressure on them," he said.
"They're feeling a lot of FIFA
pressure because, if they don't
do what they're told, they go
home.
"We committed 10 fouls
(against the Dutch) and got
nine yellow cards. That
explains a lot."

* CRICKET
MANCHESTER, England a
Associated Press
SRI LANKA made it four ,
in a row Wednesday with a 33- n
run victory over England in
the fourth one-day interna-
tional at Old Trafford. ,
England rarely looked like ,
seriously chasing Sri Lanka's -
318-7, and was all out for 285.
Sri Lanka now leads the five-
match series 4-0.
Chasing 319 to win in 50
overs, England openers Mar-
cus Trescothick and Alastair
Cook started well with 77 in
under 12 overs. But Trescoth-
ick was soon caught by Malin-
ga Bandara off Lasith Malinga
for 44. Cook was bowled by
Dilhara Fernando shortly
afterward for 39. l
Ian Bell scored 30 - but 1
used 48 balls - and captain ,
Andrew Strauss hit 45 as Eng- L.
land faced the one-day dilem-
ma of risking Wickets or run-
ning out of overs.
Bandara, Malinga, Fernan-
do and Tillakaratne Dilshan
each took two wickets. There
were two run-outs.
Earlier, Sri Lanka captain
Mahela Jayawardene scored
his second century in two
games after winning the toss
and choosing to bat. He quick-
ly justified his decision by
scoring 100 off 83 balls, includ- -
ing 9 fours, before being
caught and bowled by Jamie
Dalrymple.
Steve Harmison had struck
early when opener Sanath .
Jayasuriya was caught on the
boundary at deep gully by
Dalrymple, with the score at
23.
But a second-wicket part-
nership between Jayawardene
and Upul Tharanga produced
137 runs in 19 overs before
Tharanga was out for 60,
caught by Vikram Solanki off
Dalrymple..
In a session briefly inter-
rupted by rain, England ral-
lied to reduce Sri Lanka to
220-6 but Farveez Maharoof -
hit an unbeaten 58 in 50 balls. ;
England also conceded 30
extras, including 21 wides.The
fifth and final one-day interna-
tional is on Saturday at Head-
ingley.

The defenders will take the ace and
run their diamonds to defeat the con-
tract at least one trick. Alternatively,
if South first leads clubs, he subjects
himself to a club ruff and later loses
two hearts.
So, to circumvent these dire possi-
bilities, South makes a very unusual
play at trick four. He leads the six of
diamonds from dummy!
As a result of this extraordinary
play, South makes the contract. The
defenders can do no better than let
West win the diamond and shift to a
heart. Declarer plays low from
dummy, and East wins the heart with
the queen.
Let's say East returns a diamond,
which is the best he can do. South
ruffs and cashes the ace of spades,
drawing West's last trump as he dis-
cards the jack of hearts from dummy.
Then he forces out the ace of clubs.
That ends the battle, because dummy
is left with the ace of hearts, ace of
diamonds and the high clubs.
The hand provides an extreme
example of how a declarer can main-
tain trump control - which is what
so often decides the outcome of a suit
contract. Deliberately losing the first
diamond trick is surely a rare maneu-
ver, but it is called for under the cir-
cumstances.

Henrique Mecking v Jorge
Rubinetti, Sao Paulo 1971.
Mecking was nicknamed "the
chess Pele" when he became
Brazilian champion at 12 and
contested a world-title
interzonal at 15. But his rivals
were the all-time greats Bobby
Fischer and Anatoly Karpov,
and then he contracted a
muscular disease which forced
his retirement for 20 years.
Here as White (to move)
Mecking has a dream position
where at the price of a mere
pawn he has trapped the black
king in mid-board behind a
fragile defensive screen of
knights and pawns. It's not just
a win, but capture of the black
queen or a forced checkmate.
How did White secure victory?

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20
It's best if you take the straight and
narrow path this week, Aries. But you
find that it's not so easy with tempta-
tion at every turn. Keep your wits
about you and stay focused.
TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21
Are you tired of being described as
stubborn, Taurus? Well, then change
your tune a bit. When plans present
themselves this week, listen with an
open mind.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

loved one and this person is on to
you. What are you hiding from?
Think about reassessing your plan of
action. Others will be glad you did.
CANCER - Jtin 22/Jul 22
You've reached a roadblock and
don't know how to find a detour.
Rely on close friends to help you
out. You could be in a financial bind
for a while. Be frugal.
LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23
Now is not the time to. be the center
of attention, .Leo. Give others a
chance to shine, particularly at work.
Take an opportunity to slip iito the
shadows. You iust might like it there.
VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 -

tions again, Virgo. It seems you're

alth insurance'


Or Bernard Nottage:

. plementation

6f NHI will not be a

Irawn out process


* By CHESTER ROBARDS
; NATIONAL Health Insur-
ance could become reality in
less than two years, according to
Health Minister Dr Bernard
Nottage.
In an address during the
Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce's annual general meet-
ing, Dr Nottage said that its
implementation will not be a
drawn out process.
He said the cost of a Nation-
al Health Insurance would be
$235 million per year. Many at
the meeting questioned the real-
ity of the cost quoted, calling it
a conservative figure.
* "To cover this cost it is pro-
posed to raise revenue from
about three target groups, first-
ly the government will con-
tribute about $111 million or
about 48 per cent of the nation-
al insurance requirements, sec-
Ondly employers, employees
and self employed workers will
be asked to contribute about
5.3 per cent of earnings," Dr
Nottage said.
He explained, though, that in
the case of employers and
employees the 5.3 per cent
might be shared between them;
but the working public or about
$116 million would provide 49
per cent of the total cost.
"Protection and promotion
of health is one of the primary
roles of government and it is
clearly our role in the Ministry
of Health to ensure universal
access to affordable health ser-


vices to all residents of the
Bahamas, from Inagua in the
south to Grand Bahama in the
north," said Dr Nottage.
He noted that in order to
receive the benefits of the
National Health Insurance all
residents would have to be reg-
istered and issued a smart card
.in order to receive care, when it
comes online. He also said that
all persons not registered as well
as non-residents will simply
have to pay.
He said that approximately
50 per cent of the population
has private health insurance and
that the other half are dissuad-
ed by gaps in the private insur-
ance system.
"The benefit packages are
variable in terms of how much
protection is offered and many
persons are consciously exclud-
ed from membership and sev-
eral others lose their member-
ship upon retirement or when
diagnosed with a particular
health condition too often
we found that those who need-
ed it most, when they needed
it most were deemed uninsur-
able and sub-standard," said Dr
Nottage.
"Too many lack the funds to
pay for care for many, this
lack of resources means that
they must make difficult choic-
es between spending on their
health or using the money for
other urgent needs; in making
this choice many are forced to

BUT to withhold

report cards in

government schools

* By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
STUDENTS in government schools will not
receive their report cards today as negotfa-
tions between the Bahamas Union of Teachers
and government have again stalled.
Yesterday, Belinda Wilson, Secretary Gen-
eral of the BUT, said she did not want Educa-
tion Minister Alfred Sears to think that they
were only threatening to withhold the report
cards.
Speaking on Jeff Lloyd's Real Talk Live,
Mrs Wilson said: "I don't want the minister to
think that they are threats you know. Tomor-
row (today) every teacher in the Common-
wealth of the Bahamas will not distribute any
report cards to any parent tomorrow. That is
not a threat. That will happen."
Mrs Wilson said teachers are seeking parity
in salary with other professionals and that their
actions today are in no way designed to
penalise students.
"I want to say to our parents and to the sti-

10,000 marijuana

plants discovered in

OPBAT operations
* By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
TWO days of operations by the combined
drug interdiction forces of OPBAT have result-
ed in more than 10,000 marijuana plants being
discovered in Andros.
On Monday officers from Operation
Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, which include the
Bahamas' Drug Enforcement Unit, and US
officers stationed on the island, acting on infor-
mation, searched an area in Congo Town.
While searching the bushy area, the officers
came across a field of plants that they suspect-
ed to be marijuana.
According to Superintendent Raymond Gib-
son, the officer in charge of the DEU, the
plants on the farm ranged from three to eight
feet in height.
It is estimated that more than 4,000 mari-
juana plants were uprooted from this farm. So
far no arrests have been made. Mr Gibson said
that police investigations are continuing.
On Tuesday, the officers, again acting on
information, discovered another marijuana

Allegations
surrounding

member of

police force

spark intensive
investigation
AN INTENSIVE investiga-
tion is being conducted into seri-
ous allegations of "unlawful and
unethical practices" on the part
of a member of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, a release
from the force said yesterday.
Police Commissioner Paul
Farquharson said that it has
come to his attention that a
number of persons acting in the
name of the police force are
soliciting funds, services and
goods from persons and busi-
nesses.
Therefore, with immediate
effect any police officer, police
reservist or police civilian
requesting funds, services or
goods without the proper autho-
rization of the office of the
Commissioner of Police in writ-
ing should be denied and that
person be reported to the police
complaints and corruption unit.
While from time to time
organizations and persons of
goodwill have made contribu-
tions to the police force, with
immediate effect all and any
donations to the force will only
be considered after a letter of
request is submitted to the Com-
missioner of Police.
These strong steps come after
a matter involving allegations
of "unlawful and unethical prac-
tices" on the part of a member
of the police force was exposed
in The Tribune.
The force has received a copy
of these serious allegations and
an intensive investigation has
commenced to establish the
validity of these claims.
"The Royal Bahamas Police
Force is mandated to uphold all
laws of the Commonwealth of
the Bahamas. Toward this end
no member of the force, regard-
less of rank or tenure, is above
or outside the bounds of the rule
of law.
"The public is again assured
that any and all allegations of
corruption or unethical behav-
iour on the part of police offi-
cers, police reservists or police
civilians will be thoroughly
investigated in accordance with
Force's policy and the relevant
laws of the Bahamas," the Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force said.

THE area of Athol Island which is to be
reclaimed by Kerzner International, is the bay
on the southern side of the island, not the area in
the photograph published on the front page of
Wednesday's Tribune.
Tour operators frequently use the area shown
(above) .as a stopping point during excursions,
but the areas to which they commute may become
inundated as the development calls for exten-
sion of the island into the bay. An example of the
marine life that can be found off the shore of


Athol Island are pictured here as well. The area
known as the sea gardens is located off the south-
western shore of Athol Island and is an area
which environmentalists and conservationists say
is sensitive to developmental impact and should
be preserved.
The area pictured on the front page of yester-
day's Tribune is not a part of the "Sea Gardens". It
is popularly known as the "Bone Yard" where the
hulks of old ships are burned. The junk shown m
yesterday's photograph extends below sea-level.

Minister warns



BUT members



to obey the law


* By MARK HUMES
IN reaction to yesterday's
announcement by the Bahamas
Union of Teachers' leaders to
withhold student final grades,
the Minister of Education
warned that whatever conflicts
or grievances the BUT has with
government, "students should
not be held at ransom."
With battle lines drawn, Min-
ister Sears told BUT members
that, in the discharging of their
contractual obligations; they,
like everyone else, must obey
the law.
Appearing as a guest on the
Jeff Lloyd Show yesterday, the
Minister said: "I cannot imagine
any teacher being so misguid-
ed as to engage in that kind of
conduct."
He described the BUT's pro-
posed actions as most unfortu-
nate.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Minister Sears said:
"My job is to fight to improve
the status of education. That
means improving the status of
teachers, the remuneration of
teachers, and ensuring that
teachers are accountable and
effective."
However, thi minister said,


"You cannot put a gun to the
head of the government and
expect that the government
would capitulate and give what-
ever you ask for irrespective of
the physical ability of the gov-
ernment to deliver it, without
imposing additional taxes or
borrowing more money."
In an effort to improve the
status of teachers, the Minister
told Mr Lloyd: "The conces-
sions offered to teachers are
groundbreaking and a number
of them are exclusive to teach-
ers in the public school system."
Of special note, said Minis-
ter Sears, is the awarding of a
12-month sabbatical with full
pay after 10 years of "outstand-
ing service," adoptive leave with
pay once every three years, and
a one week paternity leave with
pay.
Additionally, continued Min-
ister Sears, there have been a
number of allowances that have
been substantially increased,
such as housing and coaching
allowances.
"I am committed, as part of
my obligation, to improve the
status and terms and condition
of teachers as a part of the edu-
cational system," said the Min-
ister of Education.

Man shot

in leg by

would-be

robber

A 50-year-old man is in hos-
pital after being shot in the leg
late on Tuesday.
Police press liaison officer
Walter Evans said that around
10.30pm, the elderly man was
giving another man a ride
through Odell Corner off East
Street.
As the passenger got out of
the vehicle, a short dark man
armed with a gun reportedly
approached the vehicle and
demanded cash from the dri-
ver. When the gunman did not
receive any money he report-
edly shot the 50-year-old man in
the right lower leg. The man
was taken to hospital where his
condition is listed as serious but
not life-threatening.

Witnesses

sought

for traffic

incident

TRAFFIC police are calling
on persons who may have wit-
nessed a weekend traffic inci-
dent which claimed the life of
elderly woman to assist with
their investigation.
Superintendent Berkie
Wright, of the Road Traffic
Department, said that the
morning following the incident,
a 17-year-old male reported to
police that he was driving the
vehicle that struck 60-year-old
Emily Pierre.
The teenager was subse-
quently questioned and
released. Police are now looking
for more witnesses to the inci-
dent.
Police are now waiting on a
pathologist report which will
determine the exact cause of
death.
Ms Pierre was reportedly
struck down around 10.30 on
Friday night in the Montrose
Avenue area. She is the coun-
try's 22nd traffic fatality this
year.

Venezuela

signs oil

pact with

Grenada

* VENEZUELA
Caracas
VENEZUELA'S state oil
company said Tuesday that it
signed an agreement with
Grenada to supply 340,000 bar-
rels of oil a year as part of a
broader deal to provide crude
products on preferential finan-
cial terms to Caribbean coun-
tries, according to Associated
Press.
Venezuela will ship 55,000
barrels of diesel, 85,000 barrels
of gasoline and 200,000 barrels
of fuel oil to Grenada annually,
Petroleos de Venezuela SA, or
PDVSA, said in a statement.
The two countries are dis-
cussing how the bill can be paid,
and Venezuela is considering
accepting partial payment in
agricultural products like
bananas and nutmeg, it said.
Grenada's Energy Minister
Gregory Bowen was quoted as
saying that the country would
reinvest savings from the agree-
ment in infrastructure, educa-
tion and health.
A joint venture will oversee
construction of infrastructure
so that Grenada can manage oil
shipments, the statement added.
The agreement is part of
Venezuela's Petrocaribe oil sup-
ply program that it signed with
14 Caribbean nations last year.


Haiti recently joined the group.
Under the program, the
receiving countries can pay for a
portion up front and finance the
rest over 25 years at low interest
rates and pay partially in ser-
vices or goods.
Venezuela is the fifth-largest
oil exporter in the world.

Bahamas 'should negotiate




education deal with Florida'


* By KAHMILE REID
THE government should
seek tuition concessions for
Bahamians who go to study in
Florida, Senator Caleb Outten
said yesterday.
Making his contribution to
the budget yesterday at the
Senate, Mr Outten said
rather as well as negotiating
for travel benefits for
Bahamians going to Florida,
the government should also
seek for Bahamian students
to pay in-state tuition the
same price as Florida resi-
dents.
Mr Outten said he will be
doing research into this idea
and then will be pitching the
proposal to the governor of
Florida, Jeb Bush.
"This is a landmark time,
when the Bahamas and Flori-
da are in much talks concern-
ing LNG, we could expand the
discussions to this excellent
idea.
"Florida needs the Bahamas
to assist millions of residence
to access LNG in their home,
we should now negotiate with
the government of Florida for
Bahamians to travel to Florida
and pay in-state tuition," Mr
Outten said.
Speaking to The Tribune,


Mr Outten said that since the
government is negotiating set-
ting up three LNG facilities
in the Bahamas, a venture
that will attract billions of dol-
lars, it is feasible to table in
higher education benefits
rather than mere traveling
benefits.
"We are talking about bil-
lions of dollars... allow our
people to go to your (Florida)


and pay in-state tuition," he
said.
Mr Outten said even though
the College of the Bahamas
and other tertiary level insti-
tutions are ably preparing
graduates for the work world,
it would still be beneficial for
college candidates to venture
outside the country for addi-
tional education.
"Florida has loads of


options, and if we could broker
a deal where our qualified can-
didates paid in-state tuition it
would be a giant leap" Mr Out-
ten told the Tribune.
Florida, he added, is close
and has a culture which
Bahamians are acquainted to.
In addition it offers a wider


variety of studies, higher cer-
tificates and higher degree pro-
grammes.
Mr Outten says this could be
the educational breakthrough
many have been playing for,
and one that should automati-
cally translate into success
among Bahamians.

PAEI, HRSAYEJN 2, 06 HETRBDETOR


THE HAGUE, Netherlands Four
months after the death of Slobodan Milo-
sevic, the most notorious Balkan war atroc-
ities are once again coming under the gaze
of international justice, and raising ques-
tions about the slow pace and'effective-
ness of the trials.
On July 10 former Serb President Milan
Milutinovic and five Serb officers and law-
makers indicted for atrocities in Kosovo
go on trial before the U.N. war crimes tri-
bunal, followed four days later by seven
Bosnian Serb officers:accused of com-
nriding soldiers in the massacre at Sre-
brenica. And on Friday the judges deliver
their verdict on Naser Oric, a Bosnian Mus-
lim commander charged with murdering
Serbs in 1992 and 1993 and wantonly,
destroying Serb villages.
But the shadow of Milosevic hangs over
the tribunal, along with the failure after a
decade-long hunt to capture former Bosn-
ian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic and
Bosnian Serb Army commander Gen.
Ratko Mladic, the two men charged with
masterminding the massacre of nearly 8,000
men and boys in the Bosnian Muslim
:enclave of Srebrenica in July 1995.
Milosevic died ihitghell of heat attack
near the end of his'gendcide trial that had
lasted four years. Some trials of lesser sus--
pects have gone on for a year. Momcilo
Krajisnik, speaker of parliament in 'the
breakaway Bosnian Serb,.republic during'
the 1991-1995 Bosnian' war, was handed
to the.court in April 2000 and didn't go
on trial until four years later.' Poceedings-
are only now nearing their end. ,
All this has prompted concerns that.red
tape and the failure to arrest key suspects.
are hampering the ability of the Interna-
tional Criminal Tribunal for the former.
Yugoslavia to deliver justice.
Chief Prosecutor Carla Del Ponte is so
frustrated at the failure to apprehend
Mladic and Karadzic that-she says'she may
now seek the U.N. Security Council's
,approval to join in the hunt herself.
"Since no one else' seems to have the
political will to locate and arrest Karadzic
agoMladic, I will have no choice but to
seek from the Council the powers to arrest
fugitives wherever they are and to allocate'
to my office the necessary resources. for

this," Del Ponte said this month at U.N.

The tribunal has no police force and
relies on governments and NATO-led
forces to arrest suspects.
Mladic is thought to be hiding out in Ser-
bia, but authorities in Belgrade say they
cannot arrest him. Karadzic is believed to
be in a Serb-controlled stronghold in
Bosnia.
Dozens of other trials are under way or
in preparation at the tribunal.
Set up by the Security Council in 1993,
the court, based in a former insurance com-
pany office in The Hague, has indicted 161
suspects, convicted 38 of them and acquit-
ted eight. Twenty-one are serving their
sentences in prisons across Europe and 17
have been released after completing their
terms.
The new trials come at a time of tension
between Del Ponte and trial judges over
the time it takes to bring suspected war
criminals to justice a problem high-
lighted by Milosevic's death, which
deprived victims, jurists and historians of a
conclusive verdict on the ultimate respon-
sibility for such atrocities as Srebrenica., .'.
Richard Dickery;oft New Ybrk-based'-
Human Rights Watch, said the:tribunal .
must pick up the pace.
"I think it's important to draw lessons
from the Milosevic trial because very
important trials are yet to come ..." Dicker
said. "Eventually Ratko Mladic and
Radovan Karadzic will be tried by this tri-
buhal."
Dicker said prosecutors should focus on
a smaller number of crimes for which evi-
dence is plentiful in order to prove broad-
er charges such as genocide that by defin-
ition involve widespread offences.
Tribunal judges also need to know when
to rein in suspects such as Milosevic who
choose to defend themselves and thereby
prolong.their trials.
Self defence is a recognized right "that
should be honoured but not abused fla-
grantly by an accused who is seeking to
use a criminal trial for the purpose of
advancing his or her political agenda,",
Dicker said.

The shand Lhkt


allowing ZNS to withhold oppo-
sition's contributions in the
House of Assembly and FNM
functions that are never report-
ed and intentionally left out. It
is frustrating to see that the
Bahamian people fund ZNS
and the PLP is using it only to
their benefit. This is wrong and
we must pay them back for that
too.
Minister Mitchell must calm
down, the real action has not
yet started. The opposition


already knows that ZNS will
not be balanced and so other -" t
avenues will be used to get thetI'
message out. So there i'sO'
nowhere for the PLP to hide. ''T
The word will get out. I would'
be shocked if The Tribune,;
Guardian, Journal or Punch is 1'
intimidated by Fred Mitchell.

IVOINE W INGRAHAM
Nassau,
June, 2006. :

(We can assure you that The..
Tribune is going nowhere. bW
are just waiting for their nexl"
hysterical move. Ed). "C
f*j) r


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THE pressure that the PLP
is feeling from the FNM is caus-
ing officers and members of the
government to display a seri-
ous case of paranoia. We must
be careful because fear causes
some unusual behaviour from
people. Fear sometimes even
causes hallucinations. Fear even
causes one to feel like every-
one is against them. Be sure
your deeds will find you out.
First it' was the chairman of
, the PLP Raynard Rigby who
issued an ultimatum to The Tri-
bune, signaling that the PLP will
resort to their "old self" of
intimidation and victimisation.
The hot air that emanated from
Mr Rigby spells out that the
PLP is running scared and will
"chew up" anyone who gets in
their way.
No less a person than Minis-
ter of Foreign Affairs Fredrick
Mitchell himself is crying about
unfair press. "Well blow me
down". Fred Mitchell, in the
flesh, is complaining about
something that he mastered, ie,
distorting the facts. Fred was
well schooled, being a part of
the ZNS team during the Pin-
dling era when the press was lit-
erally under siege. ZNS only
aired what Pindling wanted the
people to know. Keeping the
people uninformed was
designed to control information.
I double dare Mr Mitchell to
refute this.
Who can forget how the PLP
fought "tooth and nail" not to
allow any other radio station to
be licensed. Unless Fred
Mitchell and Raynard Rigby
have a serious case of amnesia,
they should turn around,, face
the wall and put on the tallest
dunce cap ever.
The naked truth is that the
only difference between then
and now is that their original
game plan to keep the people
stupid was completely
destroyed by Hubert Ingraham,
when he allowed several radio
stations to be licensed.
But in an effort to attempt to
still have a strangle hold on
information getting out, Fred
Mitchell and Raynard Rigby are
"crying wolf'". But the sad fact is
no one 'is listening, especially
the people who know just what
happened during the Pindling
era. One can only conclude that
the PLP may be attempting to
return to those days.
Castro controls information
from being disseminated in
Cuba, allowing Granma (Cuba's
newspaper) to be the only voice.
The PLP is on that same path'

A rational well though


out approach needed

EDITOR, The Tribune.
I HAVE some questions for my fellow Bahamians, HceM
goes. Are medical doctors required to remain calm and ratio allI
even when dealing with cases involving severe injury where
the patient is understandably hysterical? Does the fact that a,
physician is required to maintain a certain level of decorum ina
overwhelming circumstances indicate that he is taking the sit.-
uation too lightly? Is it possible that a rational, well-thought-out.
approach to a problem is better when navigating through a,-r
complex situation? Now remember, the physician has his liveli-', -
hood and reputation at stake after all, he can be sued andc.wL;
avoided.
Ought we to expect less than this standard of conventions
from those who are at the helm of our nation? I
I have a news flash for those who seem unaware of the@
predicament in which The Bahamas how finds itself. Ihimil'
grants legal and illegal are already here in significant nufi2" ,
bers. In fact if the statistic of one immigrant for every four
Bahamians is correct, then we must look at the immigration -
problem not only from the perspective of defending our border:
but also from the perspective of maintaining order here !
home. In my estimation, a rational well-thought-out approach'..
would take this into consideration when developing police s
to deal with the problem of illegal immigration in The Bahama.
And so, in closing, I wish to admonish my fellow Bahamiai..,o
by advising, that mistakes, such as the breaking down of thO
wrong doors in the middle of the night, are at times rather
costly.

Senator

proposes

mentorship

programme

* By KAHMILE REID
SENATOR Caleb Outten
has proposed a mentorship pro-
gramme to reduce the number
of "young men hanging out -
just doing nothing" in Grand
Bahama.
Speaking at the Senate yes-
terday Mr Outten said: "If
Grand Bahama is laden with
dejected young men, then so
are Nassau and the wider
Bahamas."
He is calling for politicians,
along with civilians, to volun-
teer some of their time to the
cause.
"We must begin to mentor
our boys... it is one thing to try
and fail, but to not have tried in
the first place is detrimental to
our nation's development".
While Mr Outten admits that
theyoung men who need the
hel ,,outnumber those who can
give it, he believes that the
efforts of those who volunteer
would be a step in the right
direction.
Mr Outten indicated his
intent to liaise with the Univer-
sity-of the West Indies about
the possibility of modelling their
mentorship programme.

Wrong recommendations



on traffic system printed


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
ROAD Traffic Controller
Jack Thompson has admitted
that the wrong set of recom-
mendations for a unified bus
system were published in a
recent government supplement.
At a press conference on
Tuesday, Public Transit Asso-
ciation Bahamas (PTAB) pres-
ident Reuben Rahming claimed
that the government's recent
supplement on a preferred
model for the unification of the
bus system for New Providence
was "exceedingly flawed."
Mr Rahming said the gov-
ernment claimed the supple-
ment published in the Nas-
sau Guardian on June 21 was
a "full copy" of the preferred
module. However, he claimed


* JACK Thompson


it was not a "true representa-
tion" of the final report issued
to the industry.
He pointed out that in the
final draft of the model, it stat-
ed that "it is important for gov-
ernment to hold minority shares
in the new company" and that
government should obtain 20


to 30 per cent of the equity at
no cost. However, in the sup-
plement this was replaced with:
"That government does not
take up any equity in the new
bus company."'
Mr Thompson yesterday
admitted that the supplement
had accidentally been printed
with the recommendations
from an earlier draft.
He pledged that the depart-
ment will reprint the supple-
ment with the correct recom-
mendations.
"We regret .this miserably
and we do apologise for an
inconvenience caused," he said.
Earlier this month, Mr
Thompson said that it would
be premature to set a date for
the implementation of the uni-
fied bus system.
At that time, he said, although


Development bank 'hinders business'


* By ROYANNE
FORBES-DARVILLE
THE Bahamas Develop-
ment Bank is a "hindrance"
to small business develop-
ment, according to Senator
Caleb Outten, who said he
intends to advocate for the act
governing the bank to be
revisited.
The Act was written in
1974 and is "hampering" the
development of commerce,
Mr Outten said in his address
to the Senate during yester-
day's morning session.
Lengthy loan processing,
he-said, among other things,
is a setback for entrepreneurs
who need "quick cash."
But, George Rodgers, Man-
aging Director of Bahamas
Development Bank (DBD),
in an interview with The Tri-
bune, yesterday explained that
the purpose of the bank is
oftentimes misunderstood.
The main objectives of the
bank, he said, is,to jump-start
new projects, assist. in the,
rehabilitation of existing ones


and fund development of
indigenous products.
"We are not a commercial
bank and if the need is for fast
cash then people need to go to
the commercial bank," he
said. "In many cases people
take what we do out of con-
text and try to compare us to
the commercial sector."
However, Mr. Rodgers
explained that executives are
seeking to have the Act
reviewed because there are
certain provisions that need
amendment.
"We would like to have
joint ventures with foreigners
and some of the terms and
conditions updated because,
if a local manufacturing com-
pany needs to expand and
there is an international cofm-
pany with that expertise that
can help, the bank would not
be able to lend funds for that
venture, because the mandate
of the bank is to assist only
local businesses," Mr Rodgers'
said.
s, ,ihave,to adpiit thatftoday,
it is no longer brilliant and can


be more appropriately
described as cumbersome . .
Slow and discouraging to
Bahamians seeking assistance
in beginning a business.
According to Senator Out-
ten, if changes are not made to
include more favourable lend-
ing to low and high risk ven-
tures, the BDB will continue
to be seen as the, "place to go
when the commercial banks
won't do the lending."
Mr Rodgers said that the
bank operates within a very
restricted market.
"We can probably look at
one or two commercial ventures
that are close to what the BDB
is expected to do," he explained.
"So in other words, (BDB's
mandate) could be brought a
little closer to the commercial
sector."

the implementation of the mod-
el is slow to arrive, it remains
the best, most workable system
for New Providence.
Yesterday he said that the
framework of the business plan
is being worked on, and stake
holders will shortly be brought
around the table to assist with
the business plan.
On Tuesday, Mr Rahming
expressed concern about a for-
eign consultant who is prepar-
ing this business plan, claim-
ing that industry personnel
have not been introduced to
this consultant, or provided any
information.
Mr Thompson said that
industry personnel would be
given the opportunity to have
an input with the business plan
of the unification of the bus
system.

yesterday to ask the Bahamian
public their views on care for


the elderly?"
The president of the Nurses
Association, Ampusam Symon-
ette, said: "Elderly persons are
living longer because of the
availability of new types of
healthcare. Individuals are more
aware of what their needs are as
it relates to healthcare." Mrs
Symonette added that many
persons would like to give
'hands on care' to their elderly,
but are unable to do so because
of time or other contributing
factors. "Generally young per-
sons do have concern for their
elderly, but they have their own
lives as well."
"We have to accommodate for
the elderly" said Castella Bowleg
"Persons these days aren't able
to stay home to care for their
older relatives. If they can't give
the physical care, they give finan-
cially to ensure their relatives are
taken care of," she added..


One interviewee said: "Not
too far back that responsibility
fell on the women. Today,
women are out in the worlq
working, so there is no one
keep house." He continued.
"The children are sent to day'
care and the elderly family
members are sent to another
type of daycare." '
Ashleigh Uriasz said: "Their
family members have their owdi
households and can't handle thg
extra responsibility. I don'?
think we have proper housing
for the elderly. They need to bl
in an environment where they
can be taken care of."
"Today's generation doesn't
fully know about family value'.
said Livingstone Sweetiqgo
"They don't have much segse,
of responsibility, because tl y
are more privileged."
One Bahamian said: "Some-
times the structure of the home
may not have been right, and
the children grew up disliking
the parent or parents."
He added: "It's up to us that
know better to do what is right.'
If we can't care for them, we
should assist with financial
backing. This would ensure that
their last days are spent peace-.
fully, because in the end .the
Lord will bless you-for it."

groups, nationalities, educa-
tional levels, and professions.
All of them demonstrated a
penchant for building strong.

Hon Bradley B. Roberts, MP,
Minister of Works and Utilities
This excerpt from The Hon. Bradley Roberts'
Contribution to the Budget Debate details the
Water and Sewerage Corporation's Strategy
for Continued Development of Water and
Sewerage Services throughout The
Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE/
CHALLENGES
Mr. Speaker, I wish to speak on the
revolutionary and visionary approach of
this government towards water and
sewerage services in this country. In so
doing, I wish to draw the attention of
members of this house to the state of
affairs of this portfolio. In this regard I
wish to remind Honourable Members of
the ongoing challenges At the
Corporation, which have spanned
.,,several decades, challenges that
include:
Unreliable potable water supply
Inadequate potable water supply
Poor water quality
No piped water supply in some
places in New Providence and the
Family Islands
The Andros barging programme
High unaccounted for water/non-
revenue water (53%) in New
Providence .I
Unreliable and antiquated sewerage
,n:pgr, mls- oSb
., ... Inadequate regulatory.framework for
groundwater management and
pollution control

These challenges, Mr. Speaker, have
hindered the Water and Sewerage
Corporation from achieving its full
potential. In fact the long standing
nature of these problems are
symptomatic of the priority that
successive administrations may have
placed on this most important aspect of
our lives. Indeed, as I have said so
many times in these hallowed halls,
water is the quintessence of our very
existence. Whilst man can survive
without electricity and telephone, man
cannot survive without water and has
not done so for thousands of years.

Mr. Speaker, in simplistic terms water is
the essence of life it is the most
important commodity in the world. The
recent experience of Hurricane Katrina
has amplified just how important quality
water is to human existence and life. In
the city of New Orleans, in the
aftermath of that destructive hurricane,
even though electricity and
communication services were restored
in reasonably short order, nothing was
allowed to happen in that city until
potable water was made available and
the toilets could be flushed.

Water for The Bahamas and the
Bahamian people is a national security
issue of the highest order!! Mr. Speaker,
solving our water issues is of
paramount concern to this government
and I submit that this is the same
position that the former administration
should have embraced.

Mr. Speaker, this government
recognizes that the provision of safe
(and affordable) drinking water and the
disposal and treatment of wastewater
have to be integrated into our national
security, as they impact the health of
residents and visitors alike. We have to
y raise the awareness of our people, to
an unprecedented level of seriousness,
on the importance of water. We in New
Providence, where the largest
population centre resides, can ill-afford
to waste this precious commodity. We
must educate our children, from pre-
school age, of the value and importance
of water.

Mr. Speaker, Honourable Members and


members of the public, this is an
awesome task, which requires the total
commitment of all stakeholders and
strategic partners to help address this
very important topic.

Mr. Speaker, as a resident of the Family
Island of Eleuthera, you can easily
attest to the state of affairs in the Family
Islands, as it pertains to water and
sewage. You can attest to the despair
that our fellow Bahamians feel when
they cannot enjoy something as simple
as having a drink of fresh water or
catching asnice refreshing bath. Mr.
Speaker you can attest to the
importance of water!

NATIONAL STRATEGIC PLAN
It is with this image in mind that this
caring PLP government has developed
a strategic plan to arrest and address
the woes that befall the Bahamian
public, as a result of the Corporation's
long-standing challenges.

Mr. Speaker, this was the image that led
the leader of this responsible and caring
PLP government, the Rt. Honourable
Prime Minister Perry Gladstone
Christie, to direct the Water and
Sewerage Corporation to ensure that
every citizen of the Commonwealth of
The Bahamas would have access to
high quality, reliable potable water in the
shortest possible time-frame.

This directive, Mr. Speaker, resulted in
the formulation of a New National
Water & Wastewater Strategy, the
expressed purpose of which is to
produce a high quality, reliable potable
water supply system and a modern
sewerage collection, treatment and
disposal network, in compliance with
international standards, for New
Providence and the Family Islands.

The cornerstone of this strategy is this
government's public-private partnership
philosophy, which has already resulted
in the delivery of high quality, reliable
..pptgblwa ybygdes_^inatipn,,to giany
residents of our Commomnweltlhtwho
previously had either a poor quality
supply or no water.

FAMILY ISLAND PROGRAMME
Mr. Speaker, as our Honourable leader
attested to earlier, to date this PLP
government has commissioned 10
desalination plants in the Family
Islands, notably in:

Moores Island, Abaco
Bimini
Waterford, Eleuthera
Farmer's Cay, Exuma
George Town, Exuma
Staniel Cay, Exuma
Matthew Town, Inagua
Deadman's Cay, Long Island
Duncan Town, Ragged Island
Cockburn Town, San Salvador

Not to leave any stone unturned, this
government also entered into a
contractual arrangement with the
Emerald Bay Resort in Exuma for the
supply of additional desalinated water
for Western Exuma. I must hasten to
add that this was in compensation for
the environmental damage caused to
the freshwater lens during the building
of the resort.

Mr. Speaker, this PLP government,
recognizing the importance of water and
hearing the cries of its people, is poised
to commission yet another desalination
plant in Central Eleuthera. This newly
completed RO plant will be
commissioned shortly. This plant is
capable of producing 400,000 imperial
gallons per day, making it the
Corporation's largest Family Island
desalination facility. The Corporation is
also currently negotiating to increase
the production capacity of the George
Town RO plant from 200,000 IGD to a
minimum of 330,000 imperial gallons
per day to meet the ever-increasing
demand for potable water in Exuma.

Mr. Speaker, as is our custom, this
government performs due diligence on
all projects. In so doing for the Central
Eleuthera RO project, some alarming
information was brought to my attention.
I was shocked and dismayed to


discover that there are a number of
settlements where water mains,
installed during the 1950s and 1960s,
were never replaced or renewed.

Mr. Speaker, many of these old mains,


which are comprised of surface laid
galvanized pipes, were actually
included in the list of works to be
replaced in the 1994 'Eleuthera Water
Improvement' project. This project,
which was funded by the Caribbean
Development Bank, was completed
under the watch of the former
administration. I am advised that, in
typical fashion, the former
administration actually allowed these
works to be excluded from the project,
when it became evident that the funds
advanced could not meet all
requirements. It begs the question -
'how could this have happened? Why
were no actions taken to correct this
critical error?' Mr. Speaker, it is clear
that the people of Eleuthera were
misled,.as apparently no explanations
were offered.

Mr. Speaker, I understand that during
this incomplete exercise, settlement
mains were replaced in Spanish Wells,
The Bluff, Current, Gregory Town, Alice
Town, Governor's Harbour, Tarpum Bay,
and Rock Sound but no pipes were
replaced in Upper & Lower Bogue,
James Cistern, North & South Palmetto
Point and Savannah Sound, the areas
where many of the old surface laid
galvanized pipes reside.

Mr. Speaker, it gets more interesting,
the former administration amongst other
things also installed underwater mains
to service, Harbour Island and Spanish
Wells, and subsequently in 2000, in an
IDB funded project, installed new pipes
in the southern settlements namely
Green Castle, Waterford, Deep Creek,
and Wemyss Bight, with transmission
mains linking all of these.

However, Mr. Speaker, in spite of all the
above, including the incomplete project,
the former administration failed to
appreciate that when you extend your
transmission system, or offer services to
more people, you need to increase your
actual water supply. A classic case of a
lack of vision and as the saying goes,
"Where there is no vision....".

Result- insufficient water to many
areas of Eleuthera, including Harbour
Island, where the loudest cries
emanated!

This short-sightedness was typical of
the priority placed on water by the
former administration but this caring
and visionary government is moving
resolutely to address these
shortcomings.

This government, with its strategy to
provide safe quality potable water to all
Bahamian residents, has already
committed to the immediate
replacement of water mains in Upper &
Lower Bogue, James Cistern, North &
South Palmetto Point,'and Savannah
Sound. In the eyes of this caring
visionary government it makes no
sense to pump first class potable water
through old galvanized rusty pipes.

The cost of these new water mains and
pipes will exceed $2 million.
Mr. Speaker, the next major
programme, slated for 2007, will be
connecting Rock Sound and Tarpum
Bay with RO supplied water.

Mr. Speaker, I would be remiss not to
remind this Parliament of the election
ploy used by the Hubert Ingraham led
FNM government on the good people of
Long Island, where water mains were
installed in the Deadmans Cay area of
Long Island, years in advance of the
installation of a RO plant. It took this
government to come to the rescue of
the people of Long Island and install a
RO plant. It was also our intention to
extend water mains to Salt Pond and
Clarence Town and then to other areas.

Regretfully, Mr. Speaker, our intentions
and the hopes of the people of Long
Island were dashed when we
discovered that the 'election ploy' pipes
were of inferior quality and could not
hold quality potable water. In short the
pipes burst and had to be replaced at a
cost of almost $700,000.

Was this the action of an accountable


and caring government?

Mr. Speaker and Honourable Members,
it did not stop there. It was actually
worse in Inagua, where the water
connections for the mains that were laid


had to be dug up and replaced because
they simply dry-rotted because of a lack
of water flowing through them. Is this
what you would expect of a
government? This was a terrible hoax,
perpetrated by persons who had the
gall to call themselves an accountable
government.

I invite the Bahamian people, when
these persons come knocking at the
doors this time, to simply look them_
straight in the eyes and to say that 'we
are supporting Perry Christie's PLP, a
productive, dynamic, accountable and
caring government!'

Mr. Speaker, this government
recognizes the critical importance of
water and wastewater services to
lifestyles and developmental growth in
the Family Islands and is committed to
addressing this long-standing and
damning problem. Whilst we are
opportunistically seeking to supplement
our efforts by public-private-
partnerships (PPP) in key growth areas,
like Exuma, West End, Grand Bahama
and Eleuthera, we are simultaneously
planning to install desalination plants in
sparsely populated islands as well. This
is the essence of our new national
water & wastewater strategy.

This government, Mr. Speaker, is
currently finalizing plans for the
construction of additional desalination
plants, within the next six months, in the
following Family Island areas:

* Green Turtle Cay, Abaco
* Salina Point, Ackins
* Snug Comer, Acklins
* William's Town, Exuma
* Sweeting's Cay, Grand Bahama
* Long Cay, in the Mical constituency

PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP
VISION
Mr. Speaker, consistent with our PPP
policy, this government is working with
developers of major Family Island
projects to ensure that any water supply
facilities developed for these projects.
address the demands of neighboring
Bahamian communities. This model is
being pursued in Cherokee Sound,
Abaco (Winding Bay development), Cat
Island, Mayaguana (I-Group
development) and Rum Cay (Montana
Holdings development).

Mr. Speaker, this strategy is by far the
best strategy for advancing the
development of the services of the
Water and Sewerage Corporation,
whilst simultaneously creating wealth in
The Bahamas. Most certainly the fact
that foreign groups/individuals are
clamouring to provide us with
'assistance' in these areas, is a
testament to the tremendous
opportunities available.

With regards to the wealth creation
aspect of PPP, this visionary
government also recognizes and
endorses this safe investment
opportunity for Bahamian institutional
and individual investments, via debt or
equity arrangements.

NEW PROVIDENCE PROGRAMME
Mr. Speaker, in addition to the stated
benefit this initiative brings, we must not
lose sight of the benefits to the
Corporation by way of cultural and
personnel development. This will be a
bi-product of the exposure of dedicated
staff at W&SC, as strategic partners
open their operations and networks to
the Corporation.

Mr. Speaker, in addition to our vibrant
Family Island programme, this
government has also been active in
New Providence, where we are
responding to the loud cries of the
people for a government that
recognizes and addresses their basic
needs. This government recognizes
and understands that the supply of
water to a modern metropolitan city and
major touristic destination cannot be
predicated on the barging of water and
mining of depleted well fields.

Mr. Speaker, this government, true to
form, sought to address this perplexing
state of affairs. Consistent with our


PPP philosophy, we have awarded a
contract for a five million imperial
gallons per day desalination plant at
Blue Hills to Consolidated Water
Company Limited. The plant was
partially commissioned last month and


THET;


PAGE 8, THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 2006








THURSDAY, JUNE 29,2006, PAGE 9


has already begun to supply 1.6 millions
imperial gallons per day of potable water.
Full commissioning is expected by August,
2006.

Mr. Speaker, this government recognizes
that the barging of water from Andros,
which was intended to be a temporary
solution, was allowed to drag on, becoming
increasingly expensive and unreliable due
to adverse weather conditions and
mechanical failures. The reality is that the
price of RO water is cheaper than the cost of
barging and is not subject to weather
conditions. In addition, special purpose
water barges are becoming increasingly
scarce.

Mr. Speaker, our strategic plans for
eradicating the water problems in New
Providence extend beyond the Blue Hills RO
plant and we are finalizing negotiations for


WATER DELIVERY STRATEGY
Mr. Speaker, this government is fully aware
of what it will take to equip The Bahamas to
maintain the standard of living it is
accustomed to and to continue the trend of
attracting quality investors and tourists.

Continued development and the tourism
industry are heavily dependent on
adequate infrastructure in general but
specifically on consistent supplies of quality
potable water and proper wastewater
services for continued survival.
Consequently the adequate supply of water
is one of the most important factors in the
development of a modern Bahamas.

Mr. Speaker, this government is fully aware
that the world-class reverse osmosis
facilities that we are building to meet our
current and future needs will be of little or
no benefit to the Bahamian people without


MEMBRANES at the New Blue Hills Reverse Osmosis Plant


another plant for Niorthernhew Providence.
In addition, directives have already been
issued to initiate plans for yet another plant
in the Winton area.

This PLP government believes that the Blue
Hills RO plant represents an historic step in
our vision to guarantee the supply of high
quality, reliable potable water to each and
every resident of and visitor to New
Providence and Paradise Island.

However, Mr. Speaker, I would be reiniss not
to advise the residents of New Providence
that once this system becomes fully
operational, anyone desirous of saving
money and/or enjoying a consistent supply
of quality potable water should quickly
embrace ihe opportunity to become a new
or returning customer of the Corporation.

In addition, Mr. Speaker, as mentioned to the
good people of Exuma during the contract
signing ceremony for the extension of water
mains throughout that island a few weeks
ago, the introduction of RO water will mean
that residents in New Providence will be
able to, in due course, take baths, and
shampoo their hair, using very little soap
and shampoo. Expenditure on these items
should decrease significantly.

In addition, Mr. Speaker, the quality of
potable water will be equal to that of
bottled water. Quality potable water will
transform the lives of the people of New
Providence and elsewhere in The Bahamas.

Mr. Speaker, this government also
recognizes the potential dangers of using
well water, which can adversely affect one's
health, and strongly encourages all
residents to utilize their well water supplies


anh equaloltyoust world-dass transmission
and distribution system.

As is the case with other islands, New
Providence also suffers from old and faulty,
mains. This is particularly unacceptable as
neglect, and/or lack of focus in New
Providence, has lead to daily leakages and
losses from the water distribution system in
excess of 50%.

Mr:Speaker, I am advised that the former
administratiofifiiet te' NIW los ss si'New
Providence at 50+% and left it at 50+%. No
vision and no understanding of the fact that
when your citizens are crying for water, you
cannot afford to continually waste 50% of
the precious commodity.

WATER CONSERVATION
Mr. Speaker, I embrace this opportunity to
touch briefly on the subject of water
conservation. I must caution all regarding
the wastage of potable water.To give an
example, one may ask the question -'does a
little leak in your home really waste water, or
mean anything?' The answer is yes! It is the
little leak that keeps on leaking and wastes
this important commodity. It is the little leak
that is oftentimes ignored and amounts to
gallons of wasted water. Mr. Speaker, in
many of our toilets, these leaks can easily
translate to somewhere in the region of 22
wasted gallons per day. In annual terms
that amounts to 8,000 gallons per year for
one toilet. Many of our homes have
multiple toilets!

More profoundly, the leaky water line
leading into your home, losing 1 gallon of
water per minute equates to potential loses
of 144 gallons per day and 52,560 gallons,
per year.

surrounding groundwater. closet, once a week, will cost you peanuts


but save you long dollars. Since coming
into power, this government has spent in
excess of $7.0mn on water mains upgrades
and extensions in New Providence. This is
simply not enough as there are still many
key areas in New Providence where there
are no piped water supplies. However Mr.
Speaker, this government is in the process
of approving a strategic proposal to
complete a landmark water transmission
and distribution system upgrade and
extension programme for New Providence
via a bond issue, to extend piped water
supplies to those areas not covered.

In the Family Islands, this government has
already completed water transmission and
distribution system upgrades and
extensions in:
Treasure Cay, Abaco (privately owned
until recently)
*Sandy Point, Abaco
Harbour Island, Eleuthera
*Farmers Cay, Staniel Cay and Moss Town,
Exuma

Other works in progress include:

The replacement of storage tanks in
Sandy Point, Abaco at a cost of $197,000
in Mangrove Cay at a cost of $181,000,
and in The Bluff, South Andros at a cost o01
$211,000, and The Bogue, Eleuthera, a
250,000 imperial gallon tank at a cost of
$583,000, for a total project value of
$1.172 million.
The replacement of 4.5 miles of water

project value of approximately $700,00(
The extension of the water main system

Mr. Speaker, this government's objective is
not only to provide potable water and
sewerage services to all residents, but also
to transform the Water and Sewerage
Corporation into a self-sustaining profitable
entity.

This strategy also supports the effective
involvement of Bahamians in the ownership
and management of water and wastewate
facilities, and commits the government to
ensure that the Corporation, will provide
water and wastewater services to all new
major developments. In this vein, the
Corporation is now engaged in ongoing
negotiations with Kerzner International,
Baha Mar and the South Ocean
development. Income from these
opportunities are to be leveraged to
provide capital funding for the provision of
water and wastewater services to all
Bahamian citizens and residents,.

Recognizing the soundness of this strategy
Mr. Speaker, the government will enact the
appropriate legislation to strengthen the
Corporation's position as the provider of
choice of water and wastewater services in
The Bahamas.

WASTEWATER DELIVERY
STRATEGY
Mr. Speaker, the government is committed
to the development of a proper sewerage
wastewater treatment model to address th
implementation of plants and facilities in
New Providence and throughout the Famil
Islands.

Sewerage/wastewater, whilst perennially
listed as an area of concern for'the'"
Corporation, was never paid proper
attention over past administrations. This
area is potentially extremely explosive and
can damage our tourism image if not
promptly addressed. One needs only look
at the inner city and the number of outside
toilets still prevalent in New Providence an<


facilities and improve the state of affairs
throughout The Bahamas.
s Mr. Speaker, since coming to power, this
government also completed the purchase
of the privately operated Abaco Utilities
Water & Sewerage System, a transaction
that was pending for many years. We
connected the residents of Treasure Cay to
the Corporation's water system, providing
the quality water promised for years, and
completed the initial upgrade of the
, sewerage system.

Mr. Speaker, I would like to advise
Honourable Members, however, that raw
sewage was for years being discharged into
an open pond, posing a serious
environmental health hazard for the
residents of this community, however,
nothing was done to address this serious
health hazard.

Without calling names, guess who
represented this area of Abaco for almost 30
years? Who boldly told the people of North
Abaco in 2002, with chest stuck out, that it
would have been the last time he would
solicit their vote?

), No names, Mr. Speaker, but I am pleased to
say that this government, will very shortly
f be awarding a contract for a deep disposal
well in Treasure Cay to eliminate the
discomfort that the residents endured for
years. Thanks to their uncaring Member of
Parliament. The same individual who now
contends that Bahamians from all over our
nation want him to come back but I
0. understand that the message that is really
being sent from the people of his own
constituency is -"hit the road jack!'
te
. Additional sewerage works In
progress or scheduled to commence
e in the short4term, Include:

The construction of a wastewater tertiary
treatment plant, off Gladstone Road, to
service Baha Mar and other developments
; in the John F. Kennedy Drive/Gladstone
Road area;
OThe upgrade of the Pinewood Gardens
f and Flamingo Gardens wastewater
treatment plants
s Improvements to the Harrold Road
septage & sludge handling facility

SUMMARY
n Mr. Speaker, this government is committed
to the developmentrofthe water and
wastewaet sector, an the provision of
basic human services, effectively but with
minimal cost to the Bahamian people.

The Water and Sewerage Corporation has
been empowered to initiate a number of
e programmes to successfully articulate this
strategy. These initiatives include:

1. The development of a new national
ip water & wastewater strategic plan;
r 2. The inclusion of a.one million imperial
gallons per day NRW (leakage) reduction
programme, as a part of the Blue Hills
desalination project. This. project is now
at 30% completion.
3. The championing of an 'integrated water
resource programme,,to heighten the
public's awareness of the nation's water
resources and what is required to
maintain it. A necessary measure to
f ensure the ongoing viability of the Water
and Sewerage Corporation and the p
protection of environmental assets.

V, Mr. Speaker, this government does not pay
lip service to the delivery of water and
wastewater services.This government
understands that water and development
S go hand in hand, with water leading the
way. This government understands that the
provision of consistent, quality water
services to large institutional clients is the
prudent way to raise capital to deliver the
same to all residents. Most importantly Mr.
or Speaker, this government is committed to
e uplifting the Water and Sewerage
Corporation and lifting the burden of
y continuous subsidies and poor quality
service delivery of water and wastewater
services from the shoulders of all
Bahamians,. -


the Family Islands.

Mr. Speaker, I am ashamed to say that of the
five wastewater treatment plants we
inherited when assuming office, none coulc
be classified as meeting international'utilit
standards'.

As with water, the government is committee
to leveraging wastewater services provided
to institutional clients, to modernize these

M UCH of the budget
debate this year, as in
times past, focused on comparing
the economic performances of the
former administration and the cur-
rent administration. Parliamentar-
ians and commentators alike talked
about whether the Ingraham or
Christie administration did a better
job growing the economy, decreas-
ing unemployment and controlling
the deficit. The budget debate also
often involved government mem-
bers listing what they regarded as
their accomplishments while oppo-


sition members refuted the same
and listed what they thought need-
ed to be done. This was all healthy
debate and quite expected in light
of the impending general election.
Yet, there is a fundamental ques-
tion that the budget presentation
begs this year and every year
before and after.
That question is: Are Bahamians
getting their money's worth from
the government? Given what the
government spends, are Bahami-
ans receiving value in terms of pub-
lic goods and services that the gov-
ernment provides? This is not an


FNM or PLP question; this is a cus-
tomer service question. Ifi
becomes the principle focus a
political directorates and civil ser-
vants it may lead to dramatic
advances in the delivery of public
services in our nation.
In the upcoming fiscal year, tie'
government proposes to sp6nd
about $1.6 billion. Let's see if +:
could put that amount of mohey'
into perspective. $1.6 billion codildl
buy sixteen hundred franchises cost-
ing $1 million each; hire sixteen
thousand lawyers at $100,000 a year;"
hire one thousand police, teachers"
or immigration officers for more
than fifty years at $30,000 a year;
or build one hundred and sixty''
malls costing $10 million each tb
build. In other words, $1.6 billion i,"
not chump change. In fact, the gov-'
emment's spending next fiscal year
will be some $200 million more than
this year and $500 million more
than it was about ten years ago.' `
Are we getting our money^s-
worth from such handsome spend'?
ing on the part of our government.
With this money the governme~i-
employs some 20,000 civil servants,"
occupying hundreds of buildings
using hundreds of vehicles, produe-:
ing millions of documents, usi d'
thousands of computers, sendin'l
representatives thousands of miill
across the globe to deliver good'
and services to us. Are we satisfied,
with what we are getting for this
money? Are we satisfied, that is, do
we feel that as much as can be done
or near as much as can be done is
being done with the money.spent?i
Let's particularise the question.

re we satisfied that te
government's spending
of more than $200 million annual-
ly on education is delivering thfi
quality education that that am6uiti
of money should produce? Are we
satisfied that its spending of almost
$100 million- on the police, defe'nce
force and judiciary are delivering
the level of national security and
justice it should? Are we satisfied
that we are getting the level of ser-
vice for money spent from our post
offices, treasury, passport offices,
clinics, hospitals, airports or docks?
Are the people employed by the
government offering the level' 6o
professionalism that their pdy
demands? Are the water, electri-
cal, telephone and sanitation ser-
vices commensurate or equal to
the amount of money spent deliv-
ering them? Are the millions 8f

service of a comparable value?
1jplese are legitimate questions
that should make those who serve
in government as well as those
served by the government think.
They are not political questions
because if one political party gov-
erning the country delivers better
service than the other in any given
term, it could still be true that nei-
ther provided services that either
satisfied the public or provided
tjiose services in a way that
equaled the funds expended to
deliver them.
'Intuitively, I believe that most
Bahamians would say that they are
not satisfied that they are getting
their money's worth from the
amount of money spent by our
.geyernment, not now and not in
the, past. I am certain that there
are. those who could say that at one
point or the other, one adminis-
tiration did a better job of deliver-
ing overall service or certain ser-
vces. There are even those who
cpuld say that certain government
departments have over time deliv-
eried satisfactory service compared
tq4 other government departments.
yet, as a general rule, I believe
that Bahamians are still waiting for
the day when they could say that
they are getting for instance $1.6
billion or more worth of goods and
services from .the money spent by
their government. Bringing that
day forward is a great challenge
but not impossible. Indeed, it
sAbuld be the central aim and pas-
sion of those responsible for the
general direction and control of
tWe Government of The Bahamas.
TEN THINGS
-,OOVERNMENT COULD
"' DO TO IMPROVE ITS
SERVICES

I n the past the government
has done a number of things
to offer better service to the public.
Fpr example, the decision to allow
people to use a single plate and
license their vehicles on their birth
dates as well as renew their dri-
ver's licences for up to three years
was a meaningful improvement of
thle delivery of these services. No
pne misses those terrible long lines
i. March every year to license vehi-
clqs. The decision to enable Fami-
JyIslanders to obtain a police cer-
tificate or business licence right
&m a government office on their
handss as opposed to' travel to Nas-
to do so was another improve-
nt of public service delivery. We
puld add to such practical
provements by doing the fol-
mwing:
1) "Require every government

.There are those who might ask
why the same was not done when

is that they were not done; other
good things were done. In the

these ideas have any merit they
should be done, either by those
who are there now or those who
will replace them.
Improving the government's
delivery of service should not be a
partisan affair, though at election

proposals for doing so. We should
all have an interest in finding ways
to make certain that we get as

we can possibly get. This would
make it a national passion.

Alumni make donation



to COB library fund


'HE College of the Bahamas
Alumni Association has donated
$5,000 to the construction fund for
the Harry C Moore Library a facil-
ity which will be central to the Uni-
versity of The Bahamas academi-
cally and architecturally.
The donation came through the
Alumni Gifts for Advancement pro-
ject, a fund-raising initiative that was
launched in March 2006 by COB's
Office of Alumni Affairs, and
endorsed by the members of the
Alumni Hall of Fame.


The College of the Bahamas is
currently in a phase of physical
expansion, which is placing new
demands on the institution's bud-
get.
In order to assist, the Alumni
Association has pledged to continue
its work with the Office of Alumni
Affairs to bring COB alumni togeth-
er to benefit their alma mater, par-
ticularly in the area of fund-raising.
The annual Alumni Hall of Fame
induction luncheon is the major
fundraiser for the Association.


The Association is also appeal-
ing to all alumni to get involved in
the Alumni Gifts for Advancement
project, which allow alumni to con-
tribute toward the development of
their alma mater with a pledge as
low as $19.74 per annum. The other
pledge contributions can be $197.40
or $1,974.00- 1974 representing the
birth year of COB.
The Alumni Association has
pledged its commitment to the con-
tinued growth and development of
The College of The Bahamas.

E BR ATING Is it time to buy?.
THROUG'HTHE AGES!I
9: P HNKIKNIT G of buying a


home, but feel bewildered by
conflicting reports about the
state of real estate? Well,
you're certainly not alone, but
in a word, relax!
Whether or not real estate is
up, down or sideways, most
people don't make their pur-
chase decisions based on mar-
ket conditions. Rather, it has
more to do with lifestyle.
For most people, a home is
very much like a "durable
good," similar to a washing
machine.
Sounds silly, but think of it
thisway: When you need a
new washer, your decision is
based on that requirement,
and you search for a machine
that offers good value and
service. You don't think


Baaa rea
estte'oda
CarmenMasso


about whether the price of
washers w ill be going up or
down in the coming months
or years.
You can have greater peace
of mind when your purchase is
made out of necessity and not
out of a desire to turn your
property into a cash cow.
You get the greatest value
out of your home by simply liv-
ing in it, and as-long as you can
.continue to make mortgage
payments, you run little risk of


losing on your investment.
Speaking with your BREA
agent is a great place to get the
ball rolling, so that you can
learn about local market con-
ditions and prices. Armed with
knowledge, you can move for-
ward and move in.

BTVI to receive


u


on road


to college status


THE Bahamas Technical
and Vocational Institute is to
be upgraded and restructured
in a bid to propel to propel
the BTV1 to modern college
status.
Parliamentary secretary in
the Ministry of Immigration,
Labour and Training, Agatha
Marcel said a private partner -
the Grand Bahama Shipyard -
is ready to assist in the
improvement of BTVI in
Grand Bahama.
Speaking at BTVI's pre-
technology awards luncheon,
Ms Marcel said, "The govern-
ment has entered into a loan
agreement with the Interna-
tional Development Bank to
upgrade and restructure BTVI
to really make it a state of the
art technical and vocational
college. The loan has been
approved .and everything is
really just about ready to go."
She added: "We intend to
push BTVI (Bahamas Tech-
nical and Vocational Institute)
to higher levels, and we are
.going to do that, and do that
here; not to make it just an
institution, but a college".

Youth
Ms Marcel said that the
Bahamas has not, to date,
been able to keep pace with
the amount of technically
skilled people needed to sup-
port our economy. And she
added, "When we consider
that we are looking at an
unemployment rate of some
10.2 per cent, it lets me know
that we have to invest in the
young people, to inake them
skilled to be able to take care
of their country.
"I want to tell you, young
people, that your Grand
Bahama, in spite of the adver-
sities, still has the lowest
unemployment rate among
men, at 8.3 per cent as of the
2005 statistics.
Ms Marcel said: "I tell you
there will be a lot of opportu-
nities for you. But I want to
caution you. Don't believe
that you have to stay pinned
here to Freeport and Grand
Bahama. There are many oth-
er beautiful islands of The
Bahamas, and as the oppor-
tunities come up, if they are
not here, be mindful that you
can go to other islands to work
and make a wonderful life if
you don't want to be here or if
tlfe opportunities arena's here.
"Today youth make up
most of the unemployed work
force through ou'. t~h world --
not only in the Bahamas. The
Secretary General of the Unit-
ed Nations, Kcfi Annan,
talked about it ii a recent
address when he suggested:
'One of the things that can
happen to alleviate this prob-
lem is to pay attention to tech-
nical and vocational education
and apprenticeship training.'"

Hung jury in murder trial NHI'in 2 years' Marijuana plants.:
FROM na e one FROM nane one


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT The 12 jurors in the mur-
der trial of Ian Knowles failed to return a
unanimous guilty verdict on Wednesday,
resulting in a hung jury.
After hours of deliberations that ended
sometime around 7pm, the jury of three
men and nine woman returned an improp-
er 10-2 guilty verdict.
Justice Stephen Isaacs told Knowles that
in order for him to be found guilty of mur-
der'the vote must be unanimous.
He also explained that because the vote
was not a specific number he could not be
acquitted of murder, resulting in a hung
jury.

Justice Isaacs said the prosecution has
the option of bringing Knowles back. for
retrial.
Knowles, a resident of Abaco, is accused
of the murder of Jermaine Thompson in
April 2004. Thompson was stabbed 12 times
about the body.
His body, which was found floating in a
blue hole, was bound in duct tape and
chains. A concrete block was also tied to
his feet.
Knowles, who was represented by lawyer
Carlson Shurland and Jameko Greene, will
remain on bail.
Prosecutor Vernal Collie, assisted by
Eurika Charlton, was disappointed with the
verdict, but indicated that the accused man
would have to be retried.

He said that Private health insurers could
sometimes be discriminatory and unfair.
Along with the National Health Insur-
ance will come the initiative to improve and
enhance the public health care system across
the Bahamas. according to the Minister.
"This includes the reorientation of health
services with increased emphasis on prima-
ry care, establishment of an efficient and
automated information system to ensure the
availability of accurate and timely informa-
tion for decision making at all levels of the
service...construction and renovation of
health clinics in New Providence and the
Family Islands and contraction of mini-hos-
pitals on several islands," he said.

dents, I would like you to
understand our plight. I would
like parents, students, whoever
has influence over the Members
of Parliament take time
today, tell them, show them the
importance of teachers, that
teachers get parity with other
professionals, and that teachers
could be able to pay their bills
at the end of the day.
"After we have laboured
under a labour of love with our
children. So whatever influence
you have, parents and students
out there with your MP, please
call them today. Don't let today
pass and let them know how
important your teacher is to you
and to pay the teachers some
money," she.said.
Mrs Wilson said that while
she could submit to a form of
teacher assessment, she said
there are many other items that
need to be in place before such
a system can be utilised.
"As a talk show host to More
l 94, you did not go there this
morning and paint. You did not
y go there this morning and bring
your own microphone. You did
not go there and bring your own
chair from home.
E "Teachers paint classrooms.
Spend their own money on
equipment and material. They
have blocks uqder their desk in
the year 2006. "whein'the gov-
ernment is going to talk about
responsibility then they need to
be responsible first of all to us,
and provide us with what we
need to get the job done," she
said.
At a press conference on
Tuesday, Mr Sears outlined in
detail a number of items in the
agreement that the BUT had
turned down and emphasized
several financial incentives
which he explained were
,'exclusively" for government
School teachers.
However, Mrs Wilson said


that such elements should have
been in the teachers' agreement
"years ago".
"Yes the minister said that
we got sabbatical, maternity
leave, adoption leave,
allowances, itinerant d]ity
allowances. Those are things
that should be in the induslfial
agreement. So I don't wantthe
minister to pontificate on 'the
radio this morning that they are'.
giving us something other thgit
what we should have been- et--,
ting. These elements shdw;
have been in our agreeni ,'
years ago. '44
"The minister has agreedctSU
tatively that he would sta '
beginning next year, the enty*
level for teachers would sta
$25,000. A teacher is a pr6
sional as he said, and they h-ias.

government for new tea i
from $22,800 to $25,000, 1
Wilson highlighted a numbef
other professionals withh'e
same degree levels and the
resulting variations in pay. *
"The minister is talking abbut
fiscal capacity. They have gien
us an outlook of the finances of
the country. There is o.er'$50
million in uncollected casino
and customs taxes. Why don't
they go after that? Next moipth
