Situation facing

accident victim worsens

after government loses

er-of-two has been left frustrat-
ed, upset and facing increasing

Education, and reports from her
former employer, which were
all in support of her case asking
for financial aid from the gov-
ernment to help her pay the
$36,810.78 cost of an operation
she requires after being injured
at work.
Following a "life altering"
accident in 1998, which the 34-
Syear-old said occurred on a
School campus where she was
S working at the time, the woman
has suffered from a progressive
and debilitating syndrome
known as reflex sympathetic
-' dystrophy (RSD), a disorder
S. characterized by chronic and
severe pain.
The woman has previously
tried to take the government
to court to get help with her
medical bills,, but was told at
that time that the statute of
limitations had run out on her
case. Inititally, the government
had refused to pay for her
surgery after she took out
insurance following the acci-
Since then, the woman has
written to the Attorney Gener-
al seeking a review of her case -
particularly in'light of.the years
she claims it took the govern-
ment to respond to her letters
.and calls immediately.after the
accident happened.
"I was waiting on their reply
from 1998 to 2001. They took
almost two years to report to
me and then told me that the
statute of limitation had run out
for me to get financial help from
them," the woman told The Tri-
bune several weeks ago.
She said: "This is not fair for
poor people like myself. I have
two kids that I have to take care
of, but I can't because of my

medical condition.
"I am asking the government
to do anything right now," she
insisted, when she first spoke
to The Tribune several weeks
ago. "Do you know.what it is
to have a headache on one side
of your head, an earache on the
other side? To have your nerves
burning and swell up? I can't
bathe myself at times."
On July 26, she sent a letter
to the Attorney General's
Office, but has since heard that
the AG never personally saw
the letter and, despite having
left messages for the relevant
authorities, she has not received
a response.
Having called to query the
ministry's silence, she was
informed of the, missing docu-
ments by an employee.
"I was told that some of the
information I'd shown him was

may have been affecting the

ing her case.
The -woman has been
informed by doctors in the US
that,' to help her condition, she
needs a procedure known as a
spinal chord stimulator.
Authorities at the department
of national insurance have said
that cost was a primary factor in
their decision not to fund her
operation in addition to the
fact that the success rate is not
Meanwhile, the woman said
she continues to suffer. "What is
really frightening is that, when
the pain starts, I now get cram p-
ing pains in my left chest."
Doctors have apparently
warned her that in her condi-
tion the possibility of her suf-
fering a stroke or heart attack
has been increased.
Her accident happened while
she was working on a school
campus on September 9, 1998.
The government has formerly
claimed that her injury, and sub-
sequent disabilities, were due
to negligence on her behalf.

Bahamas and CARICOM

states are urged to sign
onto International

Criminal Court treaty

OFFICIALS at the Inter-
national Criminal Court, the
body which is intended to.try.
governmental and military
officials who are charged
with war crimes, are encour-
aging the Bahamas, along
with five other CARICOM
states, to sign onto the ICC
ICC outreach co-ordinator
for Latin America and the
Caribbean, Francesca Vada,
urged St Lucia, Suriname,
Grenada, Jamaica, the
Bahamas and Haiti to join
the court yesterday
"I think it's a very impor-
tant development for
Caribbean states. As you
know, out of the 14
Caribbean states with inter-
national treaty-making capac-
ity, now the balance is tilted
towards having eight states
in the Caribbean, having rat-
ified the ICC Treaty," Mr
Vada told a BBC Caribbean
His statement comes as St
Kitts/ Nevis deposited its
instrument of accession to the
Rome Statute.
The statute will enter into
force for St Kitts/Nevis on

November 1.
Mr Vada said that St'
.Kitts/Nevis' membership in
the ICC has been "a very
important development for
Caribbean states."
The Bahamas has yet to
ratify the agreement, many
believe because in 2002, the
US Congress passed the
American Service Members'
Protection Act (ASPA),
which contained a number of
provisions, including prohi-
bitions of the US providing
military aid to countries
which had ratified the treaty
establishing the court and
permitting the president to
authorise military force to
free any US military person-
nel held by the court, lead-
ing opponents to dub it "The
Hague Invasion Act."
The act was later modified
to permit US co-operation
with the ICC when dealing
with US enemies.
The US has not ratified
the treaty creating the court,
and has stated it does not
intend to do so. The coun-
try's main objections are the

PM takes on the job

of assuring 'good

corporate governance'

on Grand Bahama

Tribune Freeport
ster Perry Christie has assumed
responsibility for ensuring that
"good corporate governance"
remains in place in Grand
He was responding to grow-
ing concern about the adminis-
tration of the Grand Bahama
Port Authority, which has
come under intense scrutiny
over the past few months.
"As prime minister, it gives
me an opportunity to tell you
that you must not forget I am
prime minister of the Bahamas,
that I have the responsibility
of ensuring consistent gover-
nance in the context of what
offends public policy, and that
my government will not hesi-
tate to ensure that all acts are
taken consistent with that man-
date to ensure that what we do
in our country is consistent with
good corporate governance and
does not offend public policy,"
he said.
Although Mr Christie was
in Freeport for the ground-

breaking of a new develop-
ment, he told his audience he
could see that they were
"more concerned about cor-
porate governance and possi-
ble conflicts in the administra-
tion of Grand Bahama Port
Many business licensees and
residents of Freeport had
expressed concerns over the
recent policy changes and dis-
missals of several Bahamian
executives at the Port Author-
ity since June.
PLP Senator Philip Galanis,
who is also a Freeport licensee,
and Grand Bahama Chamber
president Dr Doswell Coakley,
called for the government to
look at the Port with greater

en are consistent with good cor-
porate governance.

Immigration officials pledge

on violation

* JAMES Rolle said

EMPLOYERS have been
warned that immigration offi-
cials will no longer accept
excuses and will begin crack-
ing down on all violators imme-
Bahamians were urged to
cease employing illegal immi-
grants and were told that
claims of ignorance about the
law are no longer good enough.
Speaking at a conference in
Freeport yesterday, Assistant
Director of Immigration James
Rolle said:
"We have given quite a num-
ber of warnings to employers
and employees in recent times
and I think it is now time for us
to really start enforcing those
"I think there has been suf-
ficient notice made and this
conference today is the forum
that I want the message to get
out that there should be no
excuse now for people to say
that they don't know or they
haven't heard what the poli-
cies and procedures are," he
He said that violators will
face charges, however no men-
tion was made of what penal-
ties employers might face is
caught with illegal immigrants
in their'employ.
Mr Rolle said he called yes-
terday's conference to clarify
some of the policies currently
being undertaken by his
He explained that from now
, on, the Immigration Board will

not consider approving \ work
permit or permanent residence
applications for persons who
are already in the Bahamas as
Secondly, he said, no appli-
cations will be considered for
persons who are in the country
Mr Rolle said the most
important policy applies to the
group of immigrants who got
their first work permit since
2003 and now want renewals.
He explained that from now
on, anyone who received status
after 2003 but was in the
Bahamas illegally at the time,
must leave the country and
wait until the Immigration
Board makes a decision on
their request before they can
Mr Rolle added that employ-
ers "must prove or submit doc-
umented evidence to the
department that the employee
is out of the country, and that,
documented proof would be
copies of the relevant ticket
that those persons would use
to leave the country.
"And, in addition to that, the
department itself would be
able to follow up with the var-
ious carriers to secure the man-
ifest which should show that
the individual indeed has left.
"If those guidelines are fol-
lowed, the board has then the
privilege of approving those
permits for renewal," he said.
Mr Rolle noted that one new
policy that seems to be caus-

ing some concern regards
dependents of work permit
"The board has now insti-
tuted a policy where it wants
these persons to first of all sat-
isfy the Department of Immi-
gration that all children of
work permit holders are
indeed registered in private
"The board is also asking
those persons to submit evi-
dence that there is medical
insurance coverage for the
whole family. We are insisting
on that and so applications for
renewal right now, many of the
applicants are being asked to
provide proof that the children
who are of school age are
indeed registered in private
schools," he said.
SMr Rolle said he emphasised
private schools, because "part
of the foundation of this policy

is that fact that the board is of
the view that if a permit holder
comes to the Bahamas ot a
contract and decides after they
arrive here that they want to
bring their family here, then
that person ought to be in a
position to support their fami-
ly and part of the support for
the family is the ability to be
able to educate them and pro-
vide for them healthwise.
"The board is of the view
that it not ought to be a burden
on the public service system,"
he said.
Mr Rolle said immigration
officials will also be cracking
down on employment move-
ments of immigrants on work
"It is illegal for a person who
is an immigrant who has a per-
mit under one employer to
work for another employer on
that same permit, unless the

employer of record is in a busi-
ness that renders service to oth-
er persons. In that case it is
legitimate for them to work
elsewhere, because then we are
looking at a contractual
"But, for an individual
employer to have an immigrant
as an employee and that indi-
vidual work for any other per-
son that is illegal. In fact,
working for any other person
renders the permit invalid.
"That is where the depart-
ment now positions itself to
charge the individual, the
employee and the new employ-
He said that in such cases,
employees will be charged for
working outside the scope of
their permit, while employers
will be charged for engaging
an immigrant without the req-
uisite permit.

Enesto gaining strength in Atlantic

Tribune Staff Reporter
TROPICAL Storm Florence
is gaining strength in the open
Atlantic and could become a
hurricane by the weekend.
However, local forecasters at
the Department of Meteorology
pointed'out that the storm is
not expected to have any impact
on the Bahamas.
Forecasters are predicting
that by Saturday morning, Flo-
rence will be centered 751 miles
to the east of San Salvador and
by afternoon, it will be 830 miles
east of New Providence'- bring-
ing with it scattered showers.
At 5pm Friday afternoon,
Florence had sustained wind'
nearly 50 mph. The minimum
for a hurricane is 74 mph.
Forecaster Pat Butler said:
"Florence is still growing strong
and could become a hurricane
in a day or two."

The storm was centered
about 420 miles northeast of the
Northern Leeward Islands, and
about 730 miles south-southeast
of Bermuda by yesterday
Florence follows on the heels
of Tropical Storm Ernesto,
which formed on August 25
over the southern Caribbean
and was briefly the season's first
hurricane before weakening and
hitting Florida and North Car-
olina last week as a tropical
At least nine deaths in the
United States were blamed on
Ernesto, which also killed two
people in Haiti, delayed the
launch of the space shuttle
Atlantisand blacked-out power
to thousands of homes and busi-
nesses from North Carolina to
New York.
Last year's.Atlantic storm
season had a record 28 named
storms and 15 hurricanes,
including Katrina.

So far, the 2006 Atlantic
hurricane season has not
been as severe as initially
Mr Butler said, "Nothing
,has happened so far com-
pared to 20 depressions or
cyclones during this time
last year."
Meteorologists ran out of
proper names for Atlantic
storms last year, and'resort-
ed to using the Greek
alphabet to identify storms.
This year, initial forecasts
for the number of predicted
- hurricanes were lowered in
August to between 12 and
15 named storms and sev-
en to nine hurricanes.

The Lancet


author of

Haiti study

BRITISH medical journal
The Lancet said Thursday it is
investigating an alleged conflict
of interest by an author of a
report in the current issue that
claims 8,000 people were slain
under Haiti's interim govern-
ment, according to Associated
A critic of the study accused
one of the report's authors of
being a supporter of former
President Jean-Bertrand Aris-
tide, whose ouster following a
violent uprising led to the instal-
lation of the U.S.-backed inter-
im government that ran the
country from 2004 to 2006.
Astrid James, a deputy edi-
tor of The Lancet, said the jour-
nal is investigating the allega-
tions, but stands by the report,
which also said up to 35,000
women were sexually abused
while the interim government
ruled the troubled Caribbean
The journal took the action
after learning that Athena
Kolbe, one of two U.S. authors
of the report, had volunteered
in 1995 at an orphanage found-
ed by Aristide and has written
articles in various newspapers
. in support of Aristide while he
was president and after.
Kolbe, a researcher at Wayne
State University in Detroit,
Michigan, denied any conflict.

o In brief

Fourth man

charged in


haul case

A FOURTH person has now
been charged in connection
with the discovery of more than
$1 million worth of marijuana
on Long Island earlier this year.
Texas Minnis, 37, of Clarence
Town was arraigned at Court
Six on Thursday on charges of
conspiracy to posses as well as
conspiracy to import marijua-
It was alleged that between
Tuesday, March 14 and Mon-.
day, March 27 while at Roses,
Long Island, he along with oth-
ers conspired to posses a quan-
tity of marijuana with the intent
to supply it.
A second count alleged that
during that time, while again
being concerned with others,
Minnis conspired to import a
quantity of marijuana.
The accused pleaded not
guilty to the charges and was
remanded into custody.
The matter was adjourned to
September 13.
In March of this year two oth-
er Bahamians along with a
Jamaican man were arraigned
on similar charges.
Police say that more than
1,000 pounds of marijuana was
seized during a drug bust.

of hurricane

St George's
THOUGH Grenada has
received strong international
support to help rebuild after the
Caribbean island was ravaged
by Hurricane Ivan in 2004,
many people remain without
adequate housing, the prime
minister said Thursday on the
storm's second anniversary,
according to Associated Press.
Thousands of Grenadians
have received government aid
following Ivan, which led to the
deaths of 39 people and left a
wasteland of ruined buildings.
Total damage to the island was
estimated at US$900 million
(euro704 million).
An estimated 1,000 families
are still homeless, finance offi-
cials said.
"Although we've succeeded
S- in providing shelter and housing
support to thousands of our
people, the harsh reality is,
while I talk to you, many of our
people are still without proper
shelters," Prime Minister Keith
',-* Mitchell said.
S People in Grenada marked a
moment of silence to remem-
ber those who died in the hur-

extradition of 'Ninety' Knowles

Over 600 vehicles

stolen in Nassau

so far this year

CAR thefts are "out of con-
trol" in Nassau, with more
than 600 vehicles being stolen
since the beginning of the
year, it emerged yesterday.
Police believe many thefts
are part of a carefully planned
sales operation in the Family
Islands. Other vehicles are
stripped for parts and dumped
in the bush.
This week, Friendly Motors
Ltd offered a $10,000 reward
for information leading to the
arrest of thieves who stole five
vehicles from their premises
in August.
The company is also urging
insurance companies and
mailboat captains to pay close
attention to serial numbers of
any 2006-2007 Ford Explor-
er or Escape vehicles en route
to the Family Islands.
Last night, a theft victim
told The Tribune: "It seems
that car theft is out of control
on the island and everyone
knows that many of the cars
stolen are shipped to the
Family Islands."
The victim's vehicle was
taken during the night despite
the fact that it was behind a
closed gate and had a steering.
"Since our car was stolen
we've heard many stories

from other people who had
theirs stolen, too."
One victim received only
enough from the insurance
company to pay off the
bank loan. They lost their
Another had stopped at a
shopping plaza for only a few
moments when their car was
taken. Yet another lost his car
when he popped into a lock-
In the Stapledon Gardens
and Prospect Ridge areas, five

most popular cars with

and Escapes are also high on
the list.
Friendly Motors lost four
Explorers and one Escape last
month. Two of the Explorers
are silver, one is gold and the
fourth is dark blue with a sun-

EVEN members of Samuel
'Ninety' Knowles' own family have
vowed to vote against the PLP at
the general election, it was claimed
last night.
They are so disgusted with the
extradition of the man President
George W Bush called a "cocaine
kingpin" that they are turning
against the party he-helped.
"They know better than anyone
how many PLP politicians benefit-
ed directly from their brother's
money," said a source in Fort Char-
lotte, where the Knowles family
"They feel badly let down. Their
member in this constituency, Alfred
Sears, is on his way out.
"There is high unemployment,
high teenage pregnancy, high drug
taking and all kinds of social prob-
lems in Fort Charlotte and the PLP
has done nothing to help.
"Now they have taken away the
area's own Robin Hood. This will
not be forgiven easily."
The Knowles issue is bound to
play a major role in the poll,
according to constituency insiders.
They believe the PLP will lose a
significant number of votes in an
area held by the FNM before the
last election.
A source said: "Some members
of Knowles' own family have said
they will either not vote at all, or
vote against the PLP."
Attorney Michael Barnett, the
FNM's candidate for the area, is
being viewed as a powerful alter-
native to Mr Sears, who was

described as being focused
more on self-preservation than
anything else.
"We say Mr Sears is con-
cerned only about the next elec-
tion while Mr Barnett is con-
cerned about the next genera-
tion," said an FNM source.
In Fort Charlotte, Knowles
was a popular folk hero who
distributed gifts at 'Back to
School' and Christmas time.

He is now facing drug charges
in Florida and a possible 40-
year prison term if found guilty.
But his supporters in Fort
Charlotte are convinced he will
be acquitted.
"They believe he will get off
because they think God is on
his side," said a community
source. "They are pretty confi-
dent he will come back to Nas-

IT IS NOT the US Supreme Court or
Democrats in Congress that, five years after
Sept. 11, have prevented any of the 14 ranking
Al Qaeda suspects in US custody from being
brought to justice. They have been kept in a
legal limbo because the Bush administration
did not want even to admit they were holding
the 14 in secret prisons in foreign countries,
and because the administration, could not
design procedures for their trials that would
pass muster with the Constitution or the Gene-
va Conventions. President Bush has raised the
hopes of Sept. 11 survivors that justice is near,
but those hopes will probably be dashed if the
President persists in pushing Congress to
approve such flawed procedures.
The administration wants quick congres-
sional approval of rules for tribunals that the
Supreme Court rejected in June. The rules
would let the government use classified evi-
dence that defendants could not see, and evi-
dence gained by hearsay or through coercive
methods short of actual torture. Even if Con-
gress were to approve such kangaroo-court
procedures, they would be appealed to the
Supreme Court, which could easily turn
thumbs down on them again .
Fortunately congressional approval is far
from a sure thing. Three Republican senators,
John Warner of Virginia, John McCain of Ari-
zona, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina,
have their own proposal'for the tribunals that

THIS SEASON the CBS reality show "Sur-
vivor" is playing the race card, featuring four.
racially exclusive teams that will compete
against one another. It'll be the blacks versus
the whites versus the Asians \%ersus the His-
panics, all "stranded on the Cook Island- in the
heart of the South Pacific," according to the
show's website. These 20 strangers will have to
"outwit, outplay, and outlast" each other.
Somewhere on Mount Olympus, the gods
of low-brow television are howling, laughing so
hard that nectar sprays out of their noses.
CBS acknowledges that the setup, premier-
ing next week; is controversial. But Mark Bur-
nett, the show's producer, told The New York
Times that people have complained that "Sur-
vivor" typically only has a couple of minorities
who seem like tokens. So now the show has
gone out of its way to be "inclusive," recruiting
diverse contestants through social organiza-
tions and churches.
This passes for progress. Now a whole rain-
bow coalition of people can spear fish and
betray each other on television in the hopes of
winning $1 million.
.Who answered this casting call for all
colours? It's a bevy of young, good-looking
people who, no doubt, want to see this country
shake off the chains of racial segregation. For

adheres much more closely to the military's
due process rules for courts martial. The three
favour letting defendants have access to all
evidence used against them.
Other opponents of the administration's tri-
bunal rules include the ranking lawyers of the
military services, who are concerned that US
adoption of methods that violate the Geneva
Conventions would put US personnel at risk if
they were captured and tried by enemies. "The
right to see evidence against you and to be
present when that evidence is presented is
fundamental to a full and fair trial," said
Brigadier General James C. Walker, staff judge
advocate to the commandant of the Marine
Corps, in testimony Thursday to the House
Armed Services Committee.
The administration has shown more defer-
ence to the military's commitment to the
SGeneva Conventions by permitting the Pen-
tagon to issue new policies on treatment of
detainees that forbid abusive techniques like
simulated drownings, dog attacks, and forced
nudity. The loophole is that the policies will not
bind the Central Intelligence Agency.
The 14 Al Qaeda suspects should be brought
to justice. But they should be tried in a way
that reflects credit on this nation's commit-
ment to law. By pushing for rules that make a
mockery of US principles, the administration
only delays the day when the alleged master-
minds of Sept. 11 are put in the dock.

say that their favourite actresses include
Angelina Jolie, and she and her family alone
are a virtual United Nations.
Another contestant whose favourite maga-
zines include Maxim and Playboy, has "no
fa'ourite" in the category'"books/authors."
Surely he meant to put "A Call to Conscience:
The Landmark Speeches of Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr."
There is, however, one serious thing "Sur-
vivor" officials have right. Many people do
live segregated personal lives, divided along
racial, economic, and other social lines. That's
a reality worth discussing to understand the
impact it has on individuals and the country.
But here's a bold prediction: "Survivor"
won't spark a serious conversation. The show
will include enraged (and edited-for-effect)
cross-racial confrontations. There will probably
be a few sincere (in TV terms) conversations
along the lines of: Gosh! You're not a
thug/snob/illiterate dolt! Someone may even
say, "I love you, man," to someone of a dif-
ferent race.
Otherwise, it'll just be another outrageous
explosion of raucous, unrealistic reality televi-
sion that will attract the usual array of addict-
ed viewers.

Getting Al Qaeda to court

EDITOR, The Tribune
"I saw fire in his eyes," a ref-
eree once said after calling a
technical foul on Philip "Cab-
bage" Poitier.
This was vintage "Cabbage",
he did not utter a single word
but he allowed his eyes to
demonstrate his zeal and pas-
sion for competition. He was
diminutive in stature but he had
a real zest for life, the little
giant. To him many are eter-
nally grateful for setting such a
torrid pace, indeed, the bar has
been raised.
Not many may know this and
even more may not wish to
acknowledge this: but Philip
"Cabbage" Poitier formed one
of the best, if not the most suc-
cessful backcourts in the history
of basketball in the Bahamas,
He never carried the big name
as Sterling Quant, Eddie Ford,
"Belzie" Smith, Dave Bastian,
the late "Bando" Bostwick or
Charlie "Softly" Robbins, Assis-
tant Coach Balor Fernander,
HeadCoach Martin Lundy or
team President Edward
"Shark" Deveaux, but he was
the glue that kept the dynasty of
the Kentucky Colonels togeth-
er. That typified and
*times of "Cabbage", unassum-
ing but a great contributor.
Philip Poitier was an unselfish
go-getter who constantly strived
for excellence. A close look at
his life's endeavours will attest
to that. Whether it was as a bas-
ketball or softball player, a
coach, a game official, a sports
administrator or in his social
activities, he was a dedicated
leader. He was known to "get
the boys together" and made it
his worthwhile to keep the boys
together. Coach Martin Lundy,
the present Director of Sports -

people with the 'gumshin' of
The odyssey of the fine bas-
ketball tandem referred to ear-
lier began in 1964 at St Augus-
tine College in Fox Hifl. In
those days, sports was played
in the middle of the school day
with competition between
Alcuin and Bernard houses in
the respective divisions of 'half-
pints',' pints', 'heroes' and
'giants'; which as the names
connote represented the cate-
gories byphysical size of the
student, form/grade and athlet-
ic ability. It was my first year, so
naturally I was placed in the
half-pint section. One day, I was
approached in the front of St
Benedict Hall by this small little
feller with this big head that
growled: "Be to practice on

Monday!" no explanation. Of
course, this was classic Cabbage
who had scouted me from the
intramural programme and was
intent on building the junior
boy's interschool team. Man-
aged by the Headmaster Fr
Burton Blooms and with.Willie
Knowles, Greg Lampkin, Stan-
ley Hepburn, Rudy Francis,
Sherwin Thompson and led by
Cab, we went on to capture the
championship; in what would
be the first of many that he and
I would team up to win.
Basketball was not a
favourite of mine in 1964, so I
would avoid Cabbage daily
after softball until my late
teacher, mentor and coach Mr
Leviticus Adderley ordered me
to workouts the next day. Right
now, I often muse at whose urg-
ing this mandate came. Back'
then, Mr Adderley doubled as
the Senior Boys coach and thus
he left Cabbage in charge when
he turned attention to the older
group. Unquestionably, Cab-
bage was the man. We had
'Mojo' Hepburn, 'Bogus' Sey-
mour and Willie Knowles who
did the rebounding and Van
Delaney who to this day could
shoot the lights out. I was
tutored to play the point from
the beginning. Eventually, we
won our first basketball cham-
pionship. We never lost a game
as Juniors, no boasting. The
word was out about Cabbage
and Storr, and it would be said
that you have to pay attention
to Van Delaney, too. They both
are household names in basket-
ball circles today some 42 years

Bahamas Amateur Basketball
Association (BABA) came with

Campaigner pledges to present

case on Child Protection Act

A LOCAL advocate for the
rights of both children and par-
ents plans to argue his case at
the next town meeting on the
proposed Child Protection Act.
Clever Duncombe, who
claims that Bahamian fathers
will continue to be treated
unfairly if the act is passed, said
he plans to confront Ministry
of Social Services officials when
they hold their next public
Mr Duncombe, founder of
the non-profit group Bahami-
an Fathers for Children Every-
where, said the proposed Child
Protection Act will only "fur-
ther enshrine into law the dis-
respect to fathers of children
born out of wedlock."
Mr Duncombe, who started
the group about three and a half
years ago, believes that the
Bahamas would be making a
mistake by passing the act.
He said the current lack of
regard for the fundamental

rights of fathers would be rein-
forced, as men who are not
married to the mother of their
children would have to fight to
get custody.
Mr Duncombe explained that
under the present law, fathers
are allowed "access" and not
custody a provision the pro-
posed act would keep.
He added that no provisions
are made in the act for joint cus-
tody for parents of children
born out of wedlock.
"Parents should have joint
primary responsibility for rais-
ing the child," he said, recom-
mending that in cases where
children are born out of wed-
lock, paternity should first be
After this, "a determination
should be made by attitude and
aptitude or who is more fit
and ready for this monumental
task of raising a child," he said.
"We're not suggesting that
you remove the child away from
the mother or alienate the child
from the father," he said: "But

when we look at most of our
social ills today it stems form
single parent homes. We have
to get both parents involved."
Admitting that some fathers
shy away from their responsi-
bilities, Mr Duncombe pointed
out that in some cases, it is-the
difficulty of getting custody that
leads them to become discour-
"You can't determine how
many fathers don't want to take
responsibility of their children
when you have laws that pro-.
hibit them from doing that.
Only after you remove that law
can you make the real scientific
conclusion that this is indeed
the case. Many fathers may just
not want to go through this
long, drawn-out process."
According to Mr Duncombe,
the law cannot be allowed to
remain unclear on the question
of fathers' rights when children
are born out of wedlock.
"We need something statu-
tory instead of arbitrary," he

Reopening of Royal Oasis hoped to bring

revitalisation to International Bazaar

AFTER a severe downturn in busi-
ness, the International Bazaar in
Freeport isanticipating a resurgence as
the nearby Royal Oasis resort moves
towards reopening.
Though at the moment the bazaar is
mainly supported by a trickle of local
trade, business owners are looking for-
ward to increased tourist attention as
well as a growth in the number of
Bahamian entrepreneurs who set up
shop there.

According to Chris Paine, vice presi-
dent of the International Bazaar Owners
Association, the 40 businesses still oper-
ating hope that with the purchase of the
Royal Oasis property by World Invest-
ment Holdings, the bazaar will return
to its former popularity and size.
He noted that it may even approach
the 85 shops and restaurants that were
once operating there.
Mr Paine said the five restaurants and
35 stores which managed to survive on

local trade alone should be "congratulat-
ed for their perseverance and tenacity".
"Many believe that the bazaar is vir-
tually shut down but that simply is not
true," he said.
The Freeport market bore the eco-
nomic brunt of the destruction wrought
by the September 2004 hurricanes and.
subsequent closure of 950 hotel rooms in
the area when the Royal Oasis resort
shut down. After this, the "captive mar-
ket" of tourists dwindled, Mr Paine said.

Haiti appoints new

commission to oversee

gang disarmament

HAITI'S government
appointed a new commission
on Thursday to oversee a UN-
backed initiative to disarm hun-
dreds of gang members by
offering them economic aid and
job training, according to Asso-
ciated Press.
The seven-member commis-
sion will decide who can enter
the long-awaited programme,
which seeks to persuade up to
1,000 rank-and-file gang mem-
bers to give up their weapons
and rejoin society.
Prime Minister Jacques
Edouard Alexis told reporters
the commission made up of
people from various govern-
ment sectors will replace the
one appointed by the 2004-2006
interim government that took
power after an armed revolt
toppled former President Jean-
Bertrand Aristide.
That commission never suc-
cessfully launched a program to
disarm gangs, which are blamed
for a surge in kidnapping and
other violence in the impover-
ished Caribbean nation.
"We had a disarmament com-
mission before and the United
Nations recognized that it did
not produce results," Alexis
The new commission's presi-
dent, Alix Fils-Aime, said the
program "will serve as a step
forward to end violence."

Fils-Aime, also a Preval
adviser, said he did not know
what criteria the commission
would use to select participants,
who will receive ID cards, mon-
ey, food for their families and
job training in exchange for dis-
Special UN Envoy to Haiti
Edmond Mulet said this week
that top gang leaders and
human rights violators would

not be eligible for the "Disarm,
Demobilise and Reinsertion"
Business leaders this week
offered tepid support for the
plan and urged peacekeepers
to forcibly disarm gangs if the
bid fails.
The 8,800-strong UN peace-
keeping mission will launch
radio and television ads about
the programme in coming'days.

Since then, the bazaar's main land-
lord, City Real Estate, has extended the
option of keeping tenancy to many who
were forced to close their shop doors,
by offering a reduced rent rate.
Mr Paine said he anticipates a lot of
new interest from entrepreneurs wanting
to get established in the International
Bazaar, as they will be eager to take
advantage of the burgeoning opportunities
that are expected to present themselves
when the hotel is close to re-opening.

FREEPORT A 33-year-old
Freeport man is expected to
face dangerous driving charges
in connection with the death of
man who was seriously injured
in a traffic accident several
months ago.
On Wednesday Edward
Cooper, 44, of Mather Town,
succumbed to injuries sustained
in an accident in April.
According to Supt Basil Rah-
ming, Cooper's death will not
be classified as a traffic fatality
as the 30-day specified period
for such a designation has
However, he noted that
charges initially filed against Isi-
ah Strachan in connection with
the accident have been upgrad-

Coastal land
for US Virgin
Islands park
Charlotte Amalie'
A NATIONAL park cover-
ing more than half the island of
St. John will acquire 415 acres
of pristine coastal land by year's
end, a conservation group said
Thursday, according to Associ-
ated Press.
The Maho Bay property,
which includes white sand
beaches and jungles, will be the
largest addition to the 7,150-
acre Virgin Islands National
SPark since its creation in 1956.
The nonprofit Trust for'Pub-
lic Land reached a deal to buy
the undeveloped property from
its private owners after more
than five years of negotiations,
said spokesman John Garrison.
The San Francisco-based group
plans to sell it to the National
Park Service.
"We're extremely excited.
That is one of the most pristine
areas of the park," said park
superintendent Art Frederick.
The price and the identity of
the sellers were not disclosed.
Conservationists had feared
developers would build on the
land, which features ruins of
colonial plantations and is
believed to have pre-Columbian
Indian village sites.
The waters of the property
on St. John, the smallest island
of the US Caribbean territory,
feature seagrass beds, green tur-
tles and coral reefs visited by
tourists each year.

Ground is broken for $60m

golf condo-hotel in Lucaya

N OFFICIALS break ground for the new development,

Tribune Freeport Reporter
investor Preben Olsen and
Prime Minister Perry Christie
broke ground on Thursday for
the development of a new $60'
million golf condo-hotel.
The project, to be developed
on a 55-acre site in.Lucaya, is
being undertaken by New
Hope Holding.
Construction of the Grand
Bahama Golf and Yacht Club,
which will comprise 62 four-
bedroom suites, is expected to
be completed in 12 months..
Mr Olsen, owner and opera-
tor of New Hope Holding, said
the new hotel'project is anoth-
er big occasion for the compa-
Ay, which acquired the Port
Lucaya Marina in June.
Mr Christie, Minister of
Tourism Obie Wilchcombe,

ty CEO Sir Albert Miller and
president Albeit Gray, attend-

Erik Christiansen, former
operator of New Hope Hold-
ing, who now serves on the
board, commended Mr Olsen'
for continuing to expand the
company's strong investment
base in Freeport.
The new condo hotel, which
is situated on Bell Channel just
across from the golf course, is
intended to cater to travelling
golfers and mega-yacht owners.
Mr Olsen revealed that sev-
eral suites have already been
pre-sold to yacht owners.
He added that plans are now
'underway to start dredging
Bell Channel to allow for
access of much larger vessels.
Prime Minister Christie
commended Mr Olsen for his
confidence in Freeport, saying
the investment is unique and
will attract wealthy persons
who could possibly bring fur-
ther investment to the island.
"Here is a relatively new
young investor that is putting
money into the ground and he
has already converted and
committed to marketing the
marinas now as the largest

marina in the Bahamas.
"And so, Freeport by the
investment in the marinas
made a statement. Freeport is
making another statement
today, and that is having this
all 62 suite condo-hotel which
is essentially some 240 rooms.
"So it lends itself, not just to
persons buying, but people
who have money buying. And
so we are not just talking about
purchases from people who
come with their yachts but also
people who will come in to
make Freeport their golfing
home," Mr Christie said.
Tourism Minister Obie
Wilchcombe said he believes
that Grand Bahama is well on
the way to becoming the sports
and entertainment capital of
the Bahamas, with three golf
courses in Lucaya, two at West
End and another two when the
Royal Oasis reopens.
"I am very optimistic about
what this investment repre-
sents for the future of Grand
Bahama." he said.
SSir Albert Miller, GBPA
CEO, said that the new pro-

ject is the fourth major invest-
ment this year for Freeport.
"It has been said that I am
tired of defending the fact that
not much have been happening
in Freeport of late. But, we are
seeing that things are in fact
happening -- we are seeing the
beginning of a turnaround."
Sir Albert noted that the con-
do-hotel development repre-

Il I

sents an investment somewhere
in the region of $60 million.
"It is unique in that it will be
first of its kind in Grand
Bahama, and those of us in the
Port Authority are excited and
extended a warm welcome to
investors like Mr Olsen and
Mr Christiansen, who has laid a
good strong foundation for Mr
Olsen," he said.

New Wicker Man

film is a house

made of straw


S4 m

Starring: Nicholas Cage,
Ellen Burstyn
DEPENDING on who you
ask, the original 1970s version of
The Wicker Man is the defini-
tive British horror movie or an
overripe piece of dated silliness.
Personally, I lean towards the
latter, but there's no denying
the fact that it is an odd enough
picture to merit its cult status.
The same cannot be said,
however, of director/writer Neil
La Bute's remake an aston-
ishingly unimaginative snooze-
fest which is a big waste of
everyone's time.
For while La Bute has made
his name by helming a few com-
pellingly acidic comedy dramas
most notably Your Friends
and Neighbours which makes
Closer look like an episode of
Friends he seems to have cre-
ated this one on autopilot.
Nicholas Cage plays a police
officer lured to a remote island
to help his ex-fiance find her
missing daughter. Once there,
he discovers a strange matriar-,
chal commune which seems
hell-bent on stopping him crack-
iJng the case.
SNow there are several prob-
lems with this one especially
when compared to the source
material. The original was set
in seemingly normal communi-
S.ty on a British island with, until
the end, just the suggestion of
something sinister below the
,surface. But in La Bute's crazy
:commune, the inhabitants dis-
.play bizarre behaviour right off
'the bat including silly cloth-
ing that looks lifted straight
from The Village and this
dilutes any attempt to build a
feeling of paranoia around
Cage's character. If we already
know these folk are strange -
where's the intrigue?
There's also a distinct lack of
atmosphere with its flat direc-
-tion and anemic production val-
ues you almost feel like you're
watching The Making of The
Wicker Man.
Then there's a couple of ill-
judged surreal moments tacked

on near the end as if to com-
pensate for the drudgery of
what we've just sat through.
Nicholas Cage is the film's
saving grace relatively speak-
ing even although he's seems
to be acting in another movie
from everyone else. His stressed
out everyman almost holds the
film together and provides a few

unintentional laughs.
I could have handled a flawed
but interesting remake of the
flawed but interesting original.
But with a talented director and
cast on board, there really isn't
any excuse for this ending up
as bad as it has.

Bahamian musicians, artists, singers, artisans,,
writers, actors and performers will travel to
Trinidad to attend the event, slated for Sep-
tember 22 to October 1.

FUN will be the primary
focus of recreational and activ-
ity planners who will converge
at Atlantis for the first ever
Bahamas Regional Recreation
The event, to be held on
Monday, September 18 from
8am to 7.30pm, is being organ-
ised by Atlantis' guest activities
The conference is designed
to create an avenue for recre-
ational, activity and children's
programming professionals
from resort properties through-
out the Bahamas, the
Caribbean and the United
States to network and gain
knowledge on the latest activi-
ties and programmes.
The conference theme is
'Fun!- that's what we do!' Top-
ics to be explored during the 10
sessions will include: arts and
craft; programme leadership;
child/teen activities; marketing;
team building activities; deck
and pool games; rainy day activ-
ities and many more.
"We've learned a lot from
networking with the Resort and
Commercial Recreation Asso-
ciation (RCRA) based in the
United States and we have been
fortunate to meet so many peo-
ple over the years that have
great ideas which we have been
,able to use for our properties
based here on Paradise Island,"
said Vanessa Eneas, Atlantis'
director of guest activities.
"We felt the one area that was
missing was a Caribbean net-
work of people in this region
who share similar customers,
environments and climates. We
thought a Bahamas Regional
Recreation Conference would
be an ideal forum to bring every-
one in this region together and
zero in on all these great oppor-.
tunities and discuss ways to get
better at what we do," she said.
"At Atlantis we consider our-
selves to be one of the leaders in
the recreation field, but we would'
like to improve on this as well as
the tourism product in the coun-
Itr and I think that if we net-
\\ or k... there is a- great, benefit
to the tourism industry, let alone
the recreation industry."

The pilot, Jamil Diaz Ruiz,

S THREE weeks before the Bahamas
Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation's
national team leave for the Central
American and Caribbean Champi-
onships, female heavyweight champion
Gena Mackey's trip to Jamaica later
this month is in limbo.
Mackey, who had initially been sus-
pended by the federation for com-
ments she made against officials, but
was eventually reinstated, may not,
be able to compete at the champi-
S onships as it has been reported that
- her urine sample was notsent off for

testing to a recognized IFBB lab over-
seas with those of other team mem-
When contacted, federation presi-
dent Danny Sumner said "there's no
situation" with Mackey. ,
But when asked about rumours of
her drug test having not been submit-
ted for testing, Sumner asked; "Where
you got that from? It's new to me.
Where did you get that from?"
Pressed further, Sumner said: "I
don't know yet. I haven't made any
inquiries. I have to make some phone
calls. I can't say what's going on until I
find out from the relevant authorities."
However, a source revealed that

because Mackey's urine sample not
submitted with the.others, she may not
be allowed to compete at the champi-
All athletes must pass their drug test
before the start of the championships
and they have to present their nation-
al and doping passports, the latter indi-
cating that they are drug free, or they
will not be allowed to compete.
At this point, the source added that
,it may even be impossible for Mackey
to take another urine sample as she is
on supplements preparing for the
Apparently, a dispute between
Mackey and the federation erupted at

the end of the federation's National
Bodybuilding Championships in July at
the Rainforest Theatre.
There were cash prizes of $400 in
each.of the divisions for the men and
the overall winner, Jay Darling, col-
lected another $400. As for the women,
the divisional winners carted off $200,
but, Mackey got only another $200 for
the overall title.
When she made inquiries to the fed-
eration about the differential in the
cash prizes, it was alleged that Mackey
cussed out Sumner and the treasurer.
After a meeting. Mackey was origi-
nally set to be served an 18-month sus-
pension for alleged unsportsmanlike

conduct, but it was rescinded and she
was never served the suspension after
a tribunal hearing was held.
But just when Mackey thought
everything was over and settled it was
discovered that her urine sample was
not sent with the others for testing.
With the ample taken,,a week after
the championships, the samples are
now too old, which means that she will
have to take a new sample or she will
not be allowed to compete.
Meanwhile, Mackey is sitting on the
edge, not knowing if she will get the
opportunity to travel with the team to
compete at the end of the month.
Mackey declined to comment.

Martinborough eager

for one more title for

Bahamas next month

Senior Sports Reporter
DONNIE Martinborough will be going
for his fourth title in the World Sunshine
Championships when he represent the
Bahamas in Charleston, South Carolina
from October 2-6.
.Martinborough, the most decorated
Bahamian sunfish sailor, has won the world
title in 1983, 1985 and 188, although he's'
been at the championships for at least 10.
years over his long and illustrious career.
Seventh at his last championships in Mar-
tinique, Martinborough is hoping that his
recent fourth place finish in the Central
Americati and Caribbean Games in Carta-
gena, Colombia will give him the impetus to
get back in the top five in the world.
"Sailing the nationals has reboosted my
confidence going into the world's," said
Martinborough, who Will be among more
than 100 competitors competing in the
"I've been sailing really well and going to
the CAC Games, I felt very confident that
I could have won it or at least finish runnet-
up. It was a good Shot that I could have
pulled it off. So I feel confident that I have
a shot at winning the title."
Not forgetting the field of competitors
he have to face, Martinborough said he can
finish in the top three and earn another
medal, he would be contended with the
"I know I can, so there's no reason why I
can't finish in the top five or even get a
medal," he projected. "I just have to try
and sail as much as possible, if I intend to
win another medal."
Martinborough, a realton by profession,
won the national title, held in memory of
the late Perry G Cooke since 1995, at the
championships for the eighth time in the
past 11 years.
At this year's competition, held at the
end of August in Staniel Cay, Exuma, Mar-
tinborough took three of the six races. He

had the title already wrapped up and opted
nbt to compete in the final rape, collecting a
total of seven points from the five races he
competed in;
Jim Kaighih of Abaco was second with 13
points and Jimmy Lowe got third with 15. Lowe
was actually sitting in second after winning
two of the first three races, but he faltered in
the final three races as Kaighin stormed back.
. George Dainianos was fourth with 23 and
Dwayne Wallas rounded out the top five.with
A total of 25 competitors, including 16 from
New Providence, participated just around

the same numbers which, competed in the
championship last year in Staniel Cay. ,
With his racing boat not back from Colombia
in time for the championships, Martinborough
used a different boat to sail in the nationals.
"I felt a little uncomfortable not using my
boat, but they are all the same, so I felt okay at
the national level," said Martinborough, who
knbw that he had another stiff challenge to
deal With in Jimmy Lowe.
Martinborough has dominated the Interna-
tiohal Bermuda Race Week, winning the title
10 times. He's hoping that he can get back to
the point where he can win another world title.

This deal occurred in a regional
pair championship in Los Angeles
many years ago. The hand was
played at many tables, of course, but
our story concerns itself solely with
the table where Mrs. Kelsey Petter-
son held the South cards.
When she first looked at her
extraordinary hand, Mrs. Petterson
wondered whether it would be better
to open the bidding with two spades
(strong) or two clubs when it was her
turn to bid. A good case can be made
for either of these calls, and even the
best players would differ as to the
correct opening.
However, the problem became
altogether academic when Mrs. Pet-

terson thought she heard the player
on her right open the bidding with
seven diamonds!
Undaunted by this totally unex-
pected development, Mrs. Petterson
bid seven spades. East doubled, and,
after three passes, West led the jack
of hearts.
There was nothing much to the
play. Declarer ruffed the heart and
drew four rounds of trumps, the jack
obligingly falling on the second
round. When she then cashed the A-
K of clubs, the missing queen also
fell on the second round, so the
upshot was that she made seven
spades doubled for a score of 2,470
East-West were understandably
nonplussed by this dreadful result.
They realized they would get a very
bad score on the deal, especially
since East had elected to double the
grand slam, giving North-South an
optimum result that was unlikely to
be duplicated at the other tables.
As the East-West pair were dis-
consolately putting their cards back
into the duplicate board, Mrs. Petter-
son turned to her right-hand oppo-
nent and asked, "May Iplease see
what an opening seven-diamond bid
looks like?"
"I opened the bidding with one dia-
mond," East sadly replied.

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Roll up your sleeves, Aries, because
you have a lot of work to do this
week. An argument has you left with
some big fences to mend. Expect .
some long hours of labor.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21:' :
Something unexpected pops up on
Thursday, Taurus, causing you to.'.
rethink a few courses of action.'.'.'
Invite Capricorn to help you create a
new agenda.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21 '
There's something bothering ybou,,-',
Gemini, but you're not ready to ,
open up to others. The longer, you
keep these feelings bottled up, the
worse you will feel.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Help is on the way when you land in ,
a bit of hot water, Cancer. It wasn't
your fault, but you're paying the
price for the deed. Don't worry, oth-
ers won't blame you.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
They say the best policy,
and nothing could be more true as
events play out for you this week,
Leo. When faced with some ques-
tions, make sure to tell the truth.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Contrary to what you may believe, thel-
world is not out to get you, Virgo. The
events that have been occurring are
strictly the result of your actions.,
Change your way of thinking.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
There's no security in a venture you
have been considering, Libra. You'd
better think of a new plan or you could
end up in financial ruin. Talk to others
you can trust for advice.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22..:
It's time to confront a supervisor
about your feelings, Scorpio. Things
haven't been the best at work, and
perhaps you can both come to a
mutual decision on a change.
Naysayers feel you won't be able to
handle a big task coming up,
Sagittarius. Rut you know better.
Prove them all wrong by diving, in
whole-heartedly this week. .
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 0
There's not much on the calendar for
this week, Capricorn, so take a few
days to recoup. Though you'll be
tempted to find busy-work, relaxation
is just what you need, so resist.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb '18
You've been itching for a change of
scenery, Aquarius, and your wishes
will be granted when a real estate
venture is too good to be true.
Luckily, it's all legitimate.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Only you can map out your future, so
start today with a few well-thought-
out business ventures that will add to
your retirement fund.

Russian chess coaches show
their students today's diagram
as an example of
resourcefulness in an
apparently resignable position.
White (to play) is threatened
with instant checkmate by Qh7,
Qh6 or Rh6, but a remarkable
defence saves the game. How
can White escape defeat?
If you are looking for a chess
set, board, dock, book or
computer, London's two
specialists are likely to have the
answer. The BCM chess shop in
Baker Street (020 7486 8222,
web and the
London chess centre in Euston
Road (020 7388 2404, web are within walking
distance of each other, so you
can visit both in an afternoon
to compare stocks and prices.
