* By KRYSTEL ROLE
WHILE the.2006-2007 school year will begin
on time it will start with insufficient teachers,
the Director of Education said yesterday.
The number of teachers are not yet set for
the upcoming term as additions and subtrac-
tions are continually being made but one thing
is clear, school will begin on time.
Acting Director Cecil Thompson said the
remaining teachers will have to pick up the
slack and take on more than the usual number
Mr Thompson attributed the loss of teachers
to last minute resignations.
"The big unknown factor are those unan-
ticipated resignations," Mr Thompson
explained. However, he also noted that the
teachers are prepared to take on the chal-
lenge. Principals and teachers, particularly at
the high school level, traditionally cooperate
and are willing to "bend over backward to

Mrs Ida Poitier-Turnquest,
.President of the Bahamas
Union of Teachers, explained
that teachers wait to pull out at
the last minute so that they can
"The frustration of them
resigning at the last minute is
because if they resign earlier
they lose the last week of
August of their pay and that's
the main reason," Mrs Poitier-,
In response to the dwindling
number of teachers over the
years, the ministry has started
several initiatives to attract per-
sons into the profession.
"We have to begin in our
,schools. We have to make
teaching attractive to our stu-
dents," the minister said.
The ministry has already
designed a programme to entice
students into the education
field. The Teacher Cadet Pro-
gramme was created several
years ago in an effort to nur-
ture and mentor students who
are interested in becoming
The ministry has also given
more than 400 scholarships to
education majors at the College
of the Bahamas and offers in-
service awards to teachers to
continue their education.
"We can't stop at the pre-ser-
vice level," he added, "we have
to focus on those already in the
programme; that's why we pro-
vide in-service and partial in-
service awards," Minister Sears
However, the BUT president
took a different view. She said
that to attract teachers the Min-
istry has to make the business
more "people friendly", so that
once you come, you want to
stay. She said that with the sys-
tem as it is, only the most dedi-
However, she said the short-
age of teachers is a world-wide
problem so it's not something
new only to the Bahamas.
When the time came to
decide whether it was better to
delay the opening of school
because of insufficient teachers
and incomplete construction,
Mr Thompson said the better
choice was made.
"It's not an easy choice, but
the worst option, in my hum-
ble opinion, is to allow scores of
young people to remain out of
school, not getting an educa-
tion. What we will be doing is
sowing the seeds of our own
destruction. My point is we
have enough teachers in all the
schools to open and to function
and to discharge their respon-
sibilities until we can catch up
with the shortages.

"They wait until after the budget before they get their mon-
ey," she explained.
The most aggressive changes were made to A F Adderley Jr
High. Several changes that will take place over a three-year peri-
od will be made to the school. The Ministry has temporary
trailers in place to accommodate students going to that school.
"Of the 158 schools, 13 schools, including C R Walker Senior
High School, and Donald Davis, which had certain challenges

ruption of regular classes," Mr Sears said.
He added, "We did not simply apply the paint brush, but
we understood the need for new lavatory upgrade, the instal-
lation of proper ceiling fans, the painting of walls and removal
of debris and the replacement of roofs. All of this was necessary
in order to make the learning environment conducive to the

Xenophobia from Patrick Buchanan
WASHINGTON Patrick Buchanan can
seem more like an entertainer than a commen-
tator. The well-known conservative and erst-
while presidential candidate says shocking things
on television. He writes provocative books.
He's a marketing plus for the television and
But he is also peddling dangerous ideas.
"Should America lose her ethnic-cultural
core and become a nation of nations, America
will not survive" he writes in his new book,
"State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion
and Conquest of America." Buchanan's argu-
ment: The country is losing its Western Euro-
pean identity and being overrun by Mexicans
and other immigrant groups.
It's a troubling mix of facts and fear-mon-
gering, with dollops of nostalgia about the 1940s
and '50s, when, Buchanan says, black and white
Americans did not "obsess over wrongs done by
previous generations, for, compared with all .
other nations, America merited the gratitude of
Buchanan points to the Census Bureau's esti-
mate that by 2050, non-Hispanic whites will
make up only 50 per cent of the population.
And he argues that while white European immi-
grants have been able to assimilate successfully,
America simply can't absorb millions of immi-
grants from Third World countries who are cul-
He points to crime, gang activity, urban riots
in America and Europe, and terrorism as evi-
dence that for certain people, assimilation is
Buchanan frets that the country will shatter
under the weight of too much cultural diversity.
Shared democratic ideas won't be enough to
keep the country whole. Instead, unchecked
immigration will lead to balkanization and "the
death of the West."
His solutions: big fences, a legal crackdown on
hiring undocumented workers, a 10-year "time
out on immigration" so the country can assim-
ilate legal immigrants, a preference for Christ-
ian immigrants, and denying American citizen-
ship to babies who are born here to undocu-
No one denies that "the West" is undergoing
huge demographic change. Cultures and coun-
tries must find ways to co-exist instead of
destroying each other. And the United States
does need to address its tide of illegal immi-
grants. But Buchanan can't resist layering in
the toxin of racial animosity, pushing the whole
debate to the fringe.
Hiding in a castle of cultural purity is sense-
less. America has never been such a place. It's a
distortion to.sow fear about nonwhite or non-
Christian immigrants, millions of whom have
contributed to this country.
Yes; the world will be changed by immigra-
tion, technology, and other forces. The chal-
lenge is to steer that change, not attack it.

IT IS with great distress that
I pen these words in your jour-

it involves direct oppression

won't because of negative
repercussions which they may
receive from the Bahamas

involves the Immigration
As a native, I feel it is
imperative that I bring to your
attention and to the reading
public at large the detestable
way the Immigration Depart-

to date. Further, while I can
appreciate the stance that the
government has taken towards
"illegal aliens" and the recent
position in parliamentary leg-
islation that such persons be
sought after and repatriated
to their countries of birth,
there are, however, ways and
means by which my govern-

On August -20, 2006
between the hours of 9 and
9.30 in the morning, my per-
sonal friends, while visiting
this Bahamas, but specifically
Freeport, were inadverternly
and deliberately cut off by an
unidentifiable white van while
walking to Wendy's for break-
fast from their hotel. Let it be
known that this incident
occurred in front of the Rand
Memorial Hospital on the
Mall Drive in plain \iew of
the driving public witnessing
this horrific embarrassment.
Suddenly, a man, clothed in a
white polo shirt, jumped out
of the vehicle while wiggling
his finger, beckoning them to
approach him, stating, "Come
Suffice to say, they became
afraid and stated, "We don't
have time for you."
Not identifying himself ver-
bally and/or otherwise while
forcefully stating, "You gonna
have time for me!" flashed
what appeared to be a black
wallet. He then proceeded to'
question my friends without
any rational reason for doing
so. After my friends were ini-
tially pressed by this man, the
wife moved away fearing that
they would be kidnapped. In

light of the various acts of ter-
rorism worldwide, the
Bahamas is not exempt from
these acts. At this time the
other man came out of the van
and had handcuffs attached to
his waistband. He was in an
unidentifiable dark green out-
fit. He-then declared that they
were "Immigration officers."
My friends were so visibly
shaken because of the lack of
professionalism, also seen in
many other government
offices here in Freeport, and
the lack of proper government
identification, especially see-
ing that they were forcibly
engaged without any provo-

While attempting to answer
each question another ques-
tion was asked. To validate
that they were here legally,
my friends then presented
their travel documents they
just happened to have on their
person and their US passports.
The "officers" visibly exam-
ined the documents and then
returned them to my friends.
He then said, "I'm sorry."
Nevertheless, th t trauma
that was inflicted on my
friends made them feel as if
they would never again return
to the Bahamas. Needless to
say, this type of behaviour and
by this arm of the Bahamas
government is totally unac-
ceptable and inhumane.
I am certain that my minis-
ter, the Honourable Shane
Gibson, whose portfolio is
Immigration and Labour, does
not applaud this kind of
behaviour from his personnel.
While I agree with the posi-
tion that the government has
taken against illegal immi-
grants, it must be done with a
greater degree of civility,
order and professional integri-
Otherwise it brings only dis-
grace to the Bahamas and the
democracy for which it stands.
I am certain that my friends'
story and apprehension by this
department is not an isolated
case. I believe that this is the
"tip of the iceberg" of what
really goes on in the Immi-
gration Department and an
example of the tactics used to
manipulate persons, including

EDITOR, The Tribune.
WELL it was time to visit the Bahamas once again and
I thought they would have by now cleaned up the airport
Much to our chagrin, they have not. It was my under-
standing that a professional operator was going to take
over. The baggage handler indicated that many of the
poor performing retail stores had "connections" and
there was some hesitance in making that change for fear
of losing their locations. My poor wife's mother had to go
to one of those disgusting bathrooms at the airport and
became very ill at the stench inside. My wife insisted
that I contact my company, which is a member of the
Florida Chamber, and e-mail an alert to all members of
thiis situation, which I did.
How can the tourist department of the Bahamian gov-
ernment allow this to continue?
On another matter I was reading The Tribune and had
to chuckle at the local government airline Bahamasair,
which apparently closes their reservations at 4.30 pm!
No wonder that outfit loses as much money as they do.
What was even funnier was when Mr Woods was asked by
a reporter from The Tribune about this policy he said:
"We are going to change it to 7.30 pm!" Apparently they
have never heard of a call centre!
Thank goodness for a free and Democratic Press!

Labour Minister's claim
E By ROYANNE
Tribune staff Writer
UNION leader Dennis Williams yes-
terday refuted Labour Minister Shane
Gibson's claim that money is now a
"non-issue" in the ongoing BEC nego-
Mr Williams also criticised the minis-
ter for speaking openly about an issue
that remains before the Industrial Tri-
Mr Williams explained that while the
BEWU has opted to work along with
the Bahamas Christian Council to
resolve the matter, "it would be useful if
everyone could be quiet at this time -
because the more he talks, the more
BEC workers get angry."
Appearing as a guest on the radio
show Real Talk Live with Jeff Lloyd on
Thursday, Mr Gibson denied that the
dispute over back-pay continues to be
the focus of the talks.
"All of us agree that (BEC employ-
ees) are not owed a nickel or a dime, so
that is a non-issue," the minister had
He also insisted that he is unaware of
any ongoing "contention" between the
corporation and the union but stopped
short of saying that all outstanding con-
cerns had been resolved.
Mr Williams disagreed that the back-
pay claim is now a non-issue, but did
not explain exactly what the status of
the issue is currently.
"The union does not wish to be
involved in a political debate because
the issue is far more complicated than it
appears," he said.
"I don't understand the minister's
rationale or thought process. I don't
know what his objective is or if he is

'Ion scan' training for DEU narcotics strike force
THE Drug Enforcement
Unit's narcotics strike force
underwent "ion scan" train-
ing this week, conducted by
two US Coast Guard trainers.
The system is widely used
by the US Coast Guard and
Customs and Border Protec-
tion as well as by Bahamian
authorities for the purpose
of detecting narcotics residue.
It is used to prevent drugs
from being smuggled into the
United States and the
Bahamas at various ports of
The course was taught to
seven members of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force and
seven members of the Royal
Bahamas Defence Force.
The trainers were from the
District Seven Tactical Law
"The ion scan can detect up
to the nanogram of narcotic
residue and is considered 99.9
per cent accurate in determin-
ing if narcotics are present, or
may have been present, in lug-
gage, vehicles, aircraft or mar-
itime vessels," explained the
US Embassy in a statement.
S"This tool is especially useful
for detecting narcotics that are
located in hidden compart-
ments or in locked areas."
The basic theory behind the
ion scan is the higher the read-
ing received by the machine,
the better the chances actual
narcotics are present.
The device can also be cali-
brated to detect residue from
explosives and is widely used
by the Transportation Securi-
ty Administration at each of
the airports in the United
The intense, five-day course
was designed specifically to
take members from the strike
force who had no prior expe-
rience with the system and
turn them into fully qualified
It was also designed to
establish set procedures to cer-
tify each of the students as
samplers for ion scan testing.,
Past use of this detection
device by US and Bahamian
authorities has reportedly
resulted in successful, multi-
kilo narcotic seizures at vari-
ous ports of entry.

In Days Gone By
SLooking back at the visit of
General Yakubu Dan-Ymma Gowon
This week In Days Gone By looks back at
the visit of General Yakubu "Jack" Dan-Yumma
Gowon. General Yakubu was the head of
state (Head of the Federal Military Govern-
ment) of Nigeria from 1966 to 1975. He took
power after one military coup d'etat and was
overthrown in another.
During his rule, the Nigerian government
successfully prevented the Biafran secession,
and he subsequently followed a magnanimous
"no victor, no vanquished" policy that did
much to restore the goodwill that had been
lost between the Igbo people and the rest of
Nigeria during the 1966-1970 period.
THE Nigerian leader is seen shaking hands with Rupert Cox
of Rupert and the Rolling Coins.

Proposed Marsh Harbour airport
improvement scheme slammed
ABACO's business commu-
nity reacted fiercely yesterday
to the government's $10 mil-
lion Marsh Harbour airport
improvement scheme, claim-
ing it is a "half-baked" project
that doesn't make sense.
Critics blasted the proposed
improvements as insufficient
for a fast-developing economy
and said they were announced
without any local consultation.
Minister Bradley Roberts
told a.town meeting in Abaco
this week that work would
begin within 15 days on the
runway at Marsh Harbour, but
failed to announce what locals
regard as a much-needed run-
Instead, he said a control
tower, extended terminal build-
ings and resurfaced runway
would be the main features of
But locals reacted angrily
yesterday, sparking a spirited
debate on Radio Abaco in
which feelings were over-
whelmingly against the gov-
Mr Dale Hill, a businessman
who is also a town committee
member, told The Tribune that
even the local MP, Robert
Sweeting, had not seen the
plans released by Mr Roberts.
Yet there were several defi-
ciencies, including the lack of a
bonded cargo area, a proper
taxi-rank and a runway ade-
quate to take Abaco's growing
band of wealthy investors and
The critics want a new run-
way of unlimited length to
replace the current 3,500-ft run-
way, which they say could
remain for back-up or taxi-way
Mr Hill said: "We have had
no local consultations. We have
been asking to sec copies of
the plans. Every pilot using
Marsh Harbour wants a south-
east to north-west runw ay of
sufficient length to take the
larger aircraft now coming to
He added: "This has been
thrown in our faces as a

co debate, Mr Hill said: "Every
single caller was against doing
the airport in this way. We are
putting a lot of money into the
treasury. Why are they trying
to thart us by keeping the air-
"We have 13 airlines work-
ing out of this airport. Yet we
have a 4,000 sq ft terminal,
including concession area, cus-
toms and immigration."
A pilot who did not wish to
be named said the project was
a waste of money because it
did not address the island's
long-term needs. "The minis-
ter said a new privatised air-
port was being considered for
the future well, why not do it
"I think this plan was thrown
together primarily for con-
sumption by hoteliers and oth-
ers in the tourism business.
Definitely, the runway needs
to be extended. Everybody
Businessman Doug Evans
said the new proposals were
because of the close proximity
of the new taxiway to the air-
craft parking apron,
"What they are doing is cre-
ating an unsafe environment
for any plane on the taxiway,
which will infringe aprons
where people tie down their
"The length of the runway
is another issue. People arriv-
ing in big jets can land, but it is
far from ideal. A second run-
way is needed and the present
one can be used while this is
"I think this whole thing is
a slap in the face for Abaco.
They are not paying any atten-
tion to us at all. We pay a huge
amount into the treasury and
we get crumbs back in return."
Mr Evans said it was possible
that the government was
putting forward a plan which
they expected to be shot down.
"They will say Abaconians
are being picky. I think it is a
stall tactic. It can't be anything
else but that. I think they want
the publicto be upset so they
can say they will go back to the
The airport has been a bone
of contention for years. Pilots
have complained of a "big dip"
in the present runway and say
it is prone to flooding.
One wealthy plane-owner
faced a $250,000 bill when his
front landing-gear was dam-
aged on the runway. Others say
the airport constantly throws
up safety issues.

Knowles and Nestor will

Monday, said the entire
atmosphere at the US Open
has been a celebratory one

playing his final tour match.
"It's definitely a special
year with this being his last
year," Knowles reflected.
"He's had two unbelievable
matches and so there's been
a lot of excitement in the air.
"It's been an extra inspi-
ration just watching him
play. I hope that we can stay
around to watch him play
right to the end. Unfortu-

Knowles was referring to
the "ageless" 36-year-old
Agassi's grueling three-hour,

over Marcos Bahhdatis that

limping in the 'fifth set.
Prior tov watching the most

The Better Way

North East South West

Opening lead five of diamonds.
In many deals, a favorable result
can be achieved simply by going
through the motions. Thankfully, for
those who appreciate the challenges
the game can offer, there are many
other deals where going through the
motions will not be good enough.
Consider this case from a recent
regional team event. Both Souths
-wound up in three notrump after East
had pre-empted in'spades, and both
Wests led a diamond. Both Easts
won with the king and returned a dia-
mond to South's queen.
A low club was then led toward
dummy, both Wests rising with the
ace and returning a third diamond to
establish their suit. It was here that
the paths diverged.
rl r *
At the first table, declarer was
certain .that West had the king of
clubs, since it would have made no
sense for him to take the ace on the
first club lead rather than allow East
the opportunity to win and return a
third diamond. Afraid correctly as
it turned out that West could win
the next club lead and cash two dia-
monds to defeat the contract, South
saw no choice but to play the A-K-Q
of hearts and hope for a 3-3 split.
After the suit failed to divide
evenly, declarer led a spade to the
king, took the marked spade finesse,
cashed the spade ace and finished
down one, losing the last three tricks
- a club, a diamond and a heart -
At the second table, South also
concluded from West's ace-of-clubs
play that leading another club would
be fatal. But this declarer saw no
advantage in testing the hearts at this
point. Instead, he took his three
spade tricks first.
Superficially, this might seem to
make no difference, but in fact it
made all the difference in the world.
West had to find three discards on the
spades, and after letting go two low
clubs, he was without recourse when
the third spade was played. In prac-
tice, he pitched a heart, handing
declarer four heart tricks and the con-
tract. But had he decided to discard a
diamond instead, South could then
safely have conceded a club without
trying the hearts, and the contract
would still have been made.

By LINDA BLACK
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Misery loves company, Aries. If
you've been in a foul mood, steer
clear of others so you don't bring
down their spirits as well. You'll
brighten up by Wednesday.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
It's time to turn your luck around,
Taurus. Your employer has a new
proposition for you, and you should
take it, even if it seems like it is a
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Stop focusing on an incident that
happened weeks ago, Gemini. The
other party has forgotten about 't,"
and you should, too. Grudges will.
get you nowhere. -
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Don't be so quick to spread your
newfound wealth, Cancer. Sock
away some of it for a.rainy day. You
of all people should know how fast
fortunes can change.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
You will be the life of the party
come this weekend, Leo. Live it
up, but only if you're hot afraid of
causing a sensation among the
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Someone has hurt you, but hearts do
mend, Virgo. Rather than dwell on
what might have been, pick yourself
up and get back into action. You'll
feel better doing so.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
There are twists and turns at every co4r-
ner this week, Libra. Let's hope you
weren't planning on a quiet go of it.
Others will marvel at what appears to
be a crazy life. To you, it's the norm.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Someone in the family is more
demanding than ever, Scorpio, leav-
ing you with less free time than you
once had: This person is a priority, so
you need to learn to cope.
SAGITIARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Contrary to what you may believe,
Sagittarius, the grass isn't always
greener in someone else's yard. Be
content with what you have rather
than always chasing rainbows.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Time is of the essence with a finan-
cial plan that is brought to your atten-
tion, Capricorn. Better seek the
advice of Aquarius, because this
seems too good to be true.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Those around you are drawn to you
magnetically, Aquarius. That is why
you are a true people pleaser. Use
this trait to your advantage when you
need help at work.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
There's no time to rest now, as an
important venture keeps you busy
through the week, Pisces. Treat yourself
to something for all of the hard work.
Vassily Ivanchuk v Viorel Bologan,
Debreczen 1992. A knight at d6 or
e6, that's d3 or e3if you have the
back pieces, Is one of the most
reliable advantages. It wrecks a
defender piece co-ordinaton, Is
handy in support of attacking
queens or rooks, and often
threatens captures and forks. The
rst world champion, Wilhelm
Stenitz, used to say that If he had
such a knight, he could go to sleep
and let the game win Itself. Here
material Is much reduced, but
Ukralne's top grandmaster
Iv"nchuk (White, to move) has a
dear advantage. His extra pieces
have a primary target i Black's g5
and h6 pawns whose advance has
a b c d e f g h
weakened the kti. How id Ivanchuk
