MP breaks silence

over brawl with

Keod Smith


By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter
KENNEDY MP Kenyatta
Gibson has offered an "unre-
served apology" for his part in
..a fight between him and
Mount Moriah MP Keod
Smith at the Cabinet Office on
Monday night.
The MP is the first of the two
men to break his silence on the
matter and offer an apology.
In a statement issued from
his office yesterday, Mr Gib-
son said that he was deeply sad-
dened that on that evening his
"human frailty" led to behav-
iour that he greatly regrets.
"I realise that these events
declined to an unacceptable
and undignified level. I there-
S fore sincerely and unreserved-
S ly apologise for my conduct,
and I hope that the Bahamian
people, my constituents, and
my colleagues can forgive me,"
She said.
After a heated exchange of
S insulting words, Mr Gibson and
Mr Smith were involved in a
fist fight that lasted for several
minutes after a meeting of gov-
ernment parliamentarians at
the Cabinet Office.
During the scuffle, it was
reported that two windows
were smashed and the glass top
of the large mahogany table in
the Cabinet room was broken.
It is understood that the dis-
pute had nothing to do with
government business, but was
an argument between the two


lawyers over the handling of
the sale of a house for the client
of one of them.
The MP said'that his remorse
and regret are both full and
unconditional and he has spent
the last few days in deep con-
templation and reflection.
'Indeed I am sorry. I sin-
cerely hope that I can put this
unfortunate incident behind me
and request your support in this
regard. To err is human, per-
fection is divine," Mr Gibson
said.
However, he said that While
there had been much public
attention placed on those
events, he felt they had been
"sCnsationalised and overstat-
ed".
He further said they had
become the fodder for politi-
cal exploitation.
Nevertheless, Mr Gibson
said that he wished only the
very best,for his colleague
Keod Smith.
"I pray that we can work
together for the future benefit
of all our people," the MP said.
Prime Minister Perry Christie
has been severely criticised
over the past week for what
many view as a failed attempt
to downplay the incident and
fot failing to step in and disci-
pline the two PLP parliamen-
tanians.
The incident is being viewed
ndt only as a disappointment
but also as an embarrassment
to' the party's more seasoned
politicians.


Call for PM to act

or resign over fight
By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
POLITICAL pundits are calling for Prime M sister Perry Christie
to either act or resign over the brawl between two PLP MPs on
Monday.
Leader of the Bahamas Democratic Movement (BDM) Cassius
Stuart yesterday lent his voice to a host of others, including high-
ranking government officials who'described the brawl in vivid
detail contradicting Mr Christie's report that the disagreement
had been "accentuated".
"What happened between Kenyatta Gibson and Keod Smith is
just a disgrace," Mr Stuart said in a telephone interview with The
Tribune. .
"What they have displayed is that they are not fit to sit in the
House of Assembly. They are not fit to sit in the House of Assem-
bly, and should not be reconsideredifor re-election.
"What the PM is doing is downplaying the entire thing, and he
should not do that. He should be man enough to face the issues
S when they arise. This issue has arisen and he is tying to save face,
and save their political careers, when he knows very well that
those individuals broke the glass in the Cabinet Room. And reports
coming out of that room are that the only reason one of those
MPs didn't go out of that window is because of the storm shutters,"
. . he said.

Kozeny's chances

of Czech trial'slim'


THE Czech press is not opti-
mistic about the chances of
local charges being brought
against Viktor Kozeny after the
announcement that he will
be extradited to the United
States.
According to Radio Prague,
Czech businessman Kozeny's
chances of being brought to tri-
al in the Czech Republic are
S"slim"
Mr Kozeny, dubbed the
-"Prate of the Prague", is want-
ed in the Czech Republic to
face fraud charges..
. Radio Prague's claim was
based on Magistrate Carolita
Bethel's ruling on Thursday
that the United States' extra,
edition order against Kozeny
was to be granted. Kozeny has
been remanded in Fox Hill
Priosn since November last
year.
However, the iudge based
her ruling not on Kozeny's
money-launderiing charges but
on corruption charges that he
also faced in the US.
Clive Nicholls, Kozeny's
lawyer, tried to argue that
Kozeny should not be handed
over to US authorities because
he did not satisfy the criteria
to be extradited as laid out
under the Foreign Corruptions
Practices Act (FCPA).
The Czech news agency
reported: "Speaking via his
lawyer, Kozeny told reporters


that nothing had changed and
that the judge had merely reit-
erated an earlier decision to
extradtte hun to the US, where
he is wanted on bribery
charges."
However, the report suggests
That Kozeny will never be
brought to trial for alleged
fraud charges in the Czech
Republic. These charges
involve an investment fund that
Kozeny had started along with
investors. He allegedly creat-
ed the fund, then stripped the
companies of their assets and
cash.
Radio Prague alleged that ,i
Kozeny stole some "15 billion
crowns" from innocent Czech'
investors and that this money
"ended up in the Bahamas"
along with Kozeny.
When Mr Kozeny is extra-
dited to the US he could face
25 years in prison.


GB Power Company staff on

strike for first time in history


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
::FREEPORT Grand
Bahama Power Company
workers went on strike on Fri-
day for the first time in the
company's 30-year history after
ongoing negotiations on a new
industrial agreement stalled
early this week.
Keith Knowles, president of
the Commonwealth, Electrical
Workers Union, and'a group
of workers held a demonstra-
tion in front of the Grand
Bahama Port Authority and
the Power Company Building
in downtown Freeport.
There was an overwhelming
support for the workers by
motorists as they picketed
throughout the day between
the hours of 8am and 3.30pm
on the Mall Drive and Pio-
neer's Way.
Joining workers during their
Morning march and protest
were BDM leader Cassius Stu-
art and party treasurer Sidney
Collie. Trade Union leader
Obie Ferguson joined the
workers later in the afternoon.
The CEW Union initiated a
work to rule three weeks ago
when management failed to
reach an agreement with the
union after one year of negoti-
ations.


The union took a strike vote
last Friday,
Labour Minister Shane Gib-
son has referred the dispute
filed by the CEW Union on
September 14 to the Industrial
Tribunal on September 29.
However,'Obie Ferguson,
the attorney for the union, said
that referral of a general dis-
pute to the Industrial Tribunal
is of no value because the
Court of Appeal has made a
pronouncement that new terms
cannot be imposed on the par-
ties.
"The position is the court has
made pronouncements when
there is a general dispute
involving the creation of terms
of conditions of employment,
the Tribunal, Labour Depart-
ment, the Supreme Court, and
even the Court of Appeal, can-
not impose any terms on the
parties," he explained.
Mr Knowles stressed that the
union and its members will
remain on strike as long it
takes until an agreement is
signed.
"This is an historic moment
on Grand Bahama because this
has never happened within the
Port Group of Companies and
Grand Bahama Power Com-
pany.

IMMORALITY in the
Bahamas is at an all-time high
Deputy Prime Minister Cynthii
'Mother' Pratt revealed yester
day while speaking to the Bril
liant. Educated. Lo\ely Ladies
of Excellence IBELLE) at C:
,Gibson Senior High School.
"Today the challenge is great
for you," the minister told the
group, which is geared towards
encouraging young women's
personal, social and cultural
development while enhanicing
their self-confidence, sense of
purpose and identity...
She explained that in today '
age of technological advance.
ments, there were lots of nega
tive distractions that could influ-
ence young people.
"You have the tele\ ision. vot
have the Internet. You can pul
dow n all kinds of Ihings and see
all kinds of nasty stuff on the
TV. But is that what you wani
for your lite?" she asked. ,

Respectful
"',You are in a time when the
world seems to be topsy-turvy
when it comes to immorality
Young girls-you can hear them
before you see them. How dc
you dress?" she asked. "You
put on anything, your bodies
are exposed and you walk down
the road and you have little
napkins on but you're pulling.
what ya pulling? There's noth-
ing to pull then when the
young man seeks (you ask) who
is he talking to? But whatdoc
you expect? When you carry
yourself in a manner that is
respectful then others stand, and
watch because they see some-
thing different in you.

"So children would laugh at
me sometimes and teachers
sometimes said some negative
things. It was easy to say I am
not going to school tomorrow
but I went. I was hurting, and
it was easy for me to steal
because there was no soap at
home so I could go to the shop
and get some but I didn't.
And you know why?" she
asked. "I always set standards."
"There were mapy girls that
were doing things that were
negative and even though I was
poor I didn't want to be associ-
ated with that."
.You cannot be afraid to
speak out igainst wrong doing,
she said.
If ycyu want to amount to
something you have to start
working at it. Don't let anybody
side-track you or doubt your-
self
"This club is one that is time-
ly, one that is needed today,"
Mrs Pratt told the students.
"You are a part of a first -
yes, I am the first deputy prime
minister, a female. There will
never be another first there
might be another one, but there
will never be another first.
"So you must set goals for
yourselves.
"We are talking about setting
goals, and reaching beyond.
When everybody says you can-
not make it, you say 'Yes I can'!
despite the criticism because
God knows I've been criticised
left, right and centre, but that
hasn't slowed,me down.
"When \cou want me to do
something, tell me I can't do it,
and I'll prove you wrong."
Before leaving, the DPM
gave one last piece of advice to
the high school girls. "Have
respect for yourselves and oth-
ers will respect you. Make sure
you have this," she said, ifidi-
cating her wedding band,
"before you.get pregnant.
Because why should I buy the
cow when I can get the milk
free?" she asked, comparing the
cow to a c adding. "Make them
pay for thL co'."

body so that other children
would not smell her. "I) moth-

Haitian Ambassador speaks


on new report on immigrants


HAITIAN Ambassador Louis
Harold-Joseph said that the inte-
gration of newcomers into this
society is important.
Yesterday The Tribune inter-
viewed the Haitian ambassador
to the Bahamas about the new
report on Haitian immigrants.
The report conducted by the Col-
lege of the Bahamas and the
International Organisation of
Migration confirmed that Haitian
immigrants in the Bahamas use
substantial public health and edu-
cational facilities, but that they
make little use of other social
services. The report also report-
ed that'the number of Haitians
contributing to the National
Insurance Board (NIB) had
increased from 9,415 in 2000 to
12,651 in 2004, an increase of 34
per cent or an average increase of
6 per cent per year. The increase
in the number of people con-
tributing has resulted in an
increase in the value of contri-
butions to the NIB. This has
moved from $2,512,565 in 2001 to


Integration of newcomers into this society 'is important'


$3,529,104 in 2004, an increase
of 40 per cent.
The ambassador described the
report as "good" and that it was
headed in the right direction. He
suggested that "the report was
necessary because the govern-
ment needed to know how the
people were living and the
impact they were having on the
economic and social facets of the
Bahamas."
He said it was important for
the media not to take one ele-
ment of the report and talk about
it, but "we needed to balance it."
The report also found that
press reports by the media are
often incorrect and fuel ethnic
tensions within society. The
ambassador said that he agreed
with that finding because "very
often headlines have nothing to
do with the contents of the arti-
cles."


He also stated that there was a
tendency in the press "to give
bad information about Haiti."
That there were many things that
Bahamians didn't know about
Haiti.
In respect to government's
recruitment of Haitian teachers
this week, the ambassador said
that "during the 60's, Haitian
teachers and professionals went
to Africa to aid in its post-colo-
nial development and there were
Haitians who migrated to Que-
bec, Canada who have made a
positive impact on the society."
When asked about the report's
recommendation that all gov-
ernment agencies should com-
pile data by nationality, the
ambassador replied that it Was
up to government whether or not
they would implement the rec-
ommendation, but from the point
of view of the embassy, the rec-


Child NoeFIoIII *n(j Act MIDte.SPl iill OIN: ompssl 01Oionnoleouhfop Ithose in IStpeSS


tabled by minister
CHILDREN under 10 cannot
be held legally responsible for a
criminal act, a clause in the pro-
posed 2006 Child Protection Act
states.
The legislation was tabled by
Social Services Minister Melanie
Griffin.
The Penal Code presently pro-
vides that a child under the age of
seven years cannot be legally
responsible for a criminal act.
Clause 109 of the 2006 Child Pro-
tection Act now substitutes seven
years with 10 years.
The regulation of children in
police custody is also provided
for so that they are dealt with sep-
arately from adults as well as the
requirement that parents and
guardians be duly notified and
made to attend court with their
children.
SClauses 116 and 117 provide
for a new way of instituting the
panels in juvenile court and the
discontinuation of the words
S"sentence and conviction" in that
court. Additionally, the legisla-
tion makes a distinction between
a child who is 10 years of age but
under 14 years and a child over
14.
The Act also contains clauses
that deal with some of the issues
in which children are involved in
'legal proceedings, such as their
attendance in court, the method
of obtaining their testimony and
the making of care orders for vic-
tims of persons who take care of
them.

COMPASSION is not enough to
help those in distress, according to
Minister of Social Services Melanie
Griffin.
She said that effective counselling
involves helping persons critically
examine their situation, understand
how they got there, and realise the
need for change.
SCounsellors must also help them
and take the necessary action to
resolve the situation.
Addressing the initial installation
banquet of The Bahamas Associa-
tion of Christian Counsellors, Minis-
ter Griffin said there is often a ten-
dency for those wishing to become MINISTEI
counsellors to believe that "all one and Comnun
needs to help people in distress is Mela
compassion." .
She said while this is a necessary characteristic,
there are several other considerations that must
be taken into account.
"In order to effectively counsel others, one must
first be sure of themselves and their motives for
wanting to become counsellors as counseling pro-
vided by persons with the wrong motive often hin-
ders rather than helps," Minister Griffin said.
"Persons who seek to' be effective counsellors
must be properly trained so that they understand
human behaviour and how to respond to persons, so
that they will be able to effectively guide persons in


Rc
ni
in


understanding their situation, how
it is impacting them and what they
need to do (to overcome that situ-
ation).
"Effective counselling also
S involves helping identify possible
solutions, the advantages and dis-
advantages of these, giving them
the guidance to select the solutions
4 ; that they feel would best resolve
Their problems and then supporting
them in their choice, even when
you don't agree," the minister said.
SMinister Griffin said counsellors
must be non-judgmental and must
.not impose their ideas and desires
of Social Services, on those they are trying to help.
ty Development Additionally, she said, counsellors
e Griffin must adhere to the principle of con-
fidentiality, particularly in instances
where they may have to seek advice from counter-
parts to help bring resolution to a particular matter.
Minister Griffin said this should be done without
revealing the identity of the person being coun-
selled or providing any details that could possibly
identify that person.
"Counsellors must be confidential or their cred-
ibility will be lost," she warned. "There may also be
times when it is necessary to involve relatives or oth-
er specific persons in an effort to help resolve a
matter but this should not be done unless you have
obl,'inedtlhc permits. ion of the person to do so."


commendation "could fuel more
tension and probably many peo-
ple will suffer."
The report also concludes that
"Haitian nationals have limited
education and language skills and
this constrains their employment


opportunities." In respect to the
integration of newcomers, the
ambassador commented that
recently arrived Haitian immi-
grants between the ages of 45 to
50 may find it difficult to inte-
grate. However, he said, "Sec-
ond and third generation
Haitians are already integrated
into the society."

EIOIAULTTES T-TH0EITOR


WACO, Texas The saying is that
bad things always come in threes. They
came for the Bush administration this
week in just about two news cycles.
First came the leaked National Intelli-
gence Estimate that rather than quelling
terrorism, America's presence in Iraq is
spawning it.
Then came a panel of retired generals
saying the same. Then came Pakistani
President Pervez Musharaf, who said the
same.
But of all the explanations of what is
happening there, the most revealing
came the other day from Charles
Krauthammer, probably the most able
voice of the "peace through pre-emp-
tive war" contingent.
Krauthammer was trying to deflect
concerns about Iraq and to rationalize
the administration's "stay the course"
zen.
In the process, he inadvertently shot
down the reason most often cited for
keeping American troops there.
In response to concerns that Iraq is in
civil war, something this administration
denies, his answer: "Of course it is." It's
a civil war in which displaced Sunnis
want their power back and Shiites are
exacting their wrath on prior oppressors.
Krauthammer offers this telling caveat
about this ethnic conflict, however. It is
telling relative to concerns that U.S.
withdrawal might cause the Iraqi gov-
ernment to topple:
"The insurgents have the capacity to
massacre civilians and kill coalition sol-
diers with roadside bombs, but they have
never demonstrated the capacity for the
kind of sustained unit action that ulti-
mately overthrows governments and
wins civil wars. (See Castro, Mao, North
Vietnam.)"
In other words, concerns of the over-
throw of the Iraq government are mis-
placed relative to any organized threat
posed by insurgents.
As for Iraqis standing up to allow
American troops to stand down, they
have little incentive to.
For one, they can rely on U.S. fire-
power.
For another, if they enlist right now,


they are construed as collaborators with
an occupying force.
Redeploying American troops out of
the country and basing them with neigh-
bouring allies would force Iraqis who
support true democracy to stand on their
own feet, step up and engage in self-gov-
ernment. A government that is propped
up by the United States, insulated in the
Green Zone in mortal fear, is not a gov-
ernment of, by and for the Iraqi people.
And it won't be.
Now for the two unspoken reasons
why this administration won't withdraw
troops from the Iraqi cauldron. The first
is that, in addition to a $592 million
American Embassy compound that
would make the Mall of America feel
humble, our government wants to estab-
lish permanent military bases in Iraq.
After all, they'll say, it's in our geopo-
litical strategic (business) interests.
The second unstated reason: The dis-
mantling of Iraq's previous regime leaves
nothing to check the designs of Iran on
its next-door neighbour other than an
eternal U.S. presence in Iraq.
Of course,, that's ridiculous. The Unit-
ed States can use the basing options it
had before to check threats against the
new Iraqi government.
Redeployment is the operative term
used by U.S. Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Pa.,
the steely Marine who stepped up as one
of the first to call the Iraq misadventure
the certifiable disaster it has become.
We must acknowledge that our occu-
pation of that country doesn't make it
safer.
It doesn't make the Iraqis more likely
to defend their government. The biggest
reason for that attitude is that with our
role there now, the country isn't per-
ceived to be theirs.
As for permanent military bases: They
won't advance our strategic interests.
They will be the imprint of an invader,
that said it came to build schools, but
ended up giving a new generation of mil-
itants a reason to do something other
than find honest work.

Time for Iraq to govern itself


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THERE has been quite a
frenzy in both the local and
international media over the
last few weeks over the Anna
Nicole Smith affair. The reac-
tion from the US media has
been exactly what I expected.
Our local media has also kept
the story alive with, in my
opinion, more responsible
reporting on this story and on
the spin-offs such as the cor-
ner affair and the political fall-
out.
What seems to have been


pushed to the background is
the fact that Ms Smith has suf-
fered a terrible tragedy, los-
ing her child with whom, by
all accounts, she was very
close and had such a special
bond. My heart goes out to
her. What has been very dis-
turbing to me is the attempts
by the local politicians from
all sides to make political hay
from this whole affair. I say


'There will be


no succession'

EDITOR, The Tribune.
I PROMISED myself and my friends that I would not write
to the press after I passed the age of 70 and so far I have kept
my word.,
But the study in your paper on Monday, September 11, 2006
entitled, "Rumblings of Rebellion- Disgruntlement runs high
as Abaco talks of secession" has caused me to put country
before pride, so here goes.
First, let me go back 30 plus years, when there was serious con-
sideration given to Abaco remaining a Crown Colony. In my
opinion, it was ludicrous at that time and I opposed it. It died a
natural death during the past three decades and any attempt to
resurrect it is wrong.
I believe I am in tune with the people of Abaco more than
most. My work takes me from Sandy Point in the south, to
Crown Haven in the north, as well as to. the off lying cays. I am
yet to hear one serious voice for secession. It just does not
arise. So rest assured, my fellow Bahamians, there will be no
secession.
I must apologise on behalf of the people of Abaco, for the
words(of the 35th paragraph of the story, which read, "Abaco-
nians will tell you they are better orgariised, industrious,
energetic, etc, than their counterparts elsewhere in the country."
What an insult to my fellow Bahamians in Long Island, Cat
Island, Spanish Wells, etc. I say, shame on The Tribune for
allowing this to be printed.
Untold damage has been done to the image of Abaco from the
article mentioned, and this, after three decades of
maturity, during which time great strides have been made in race
relations.
Let me finish by saying that there is much disgruntlement,
tending to anger, at the way Abaco continues to be neglected,
especially the pittance to Local Government for the mainte-
nance of a town that is bursting at the seams, with the budget just
slightly more than it was 10 years ago, while our revenue has
more than doubled. A crying shame.
But secession, a resounding No! Patriotic and
annoyed.

shame, shame, shame, on
them! If they think their rant-
ings on this tragic affair is
going to have any impact on
how I view the government's
performance or on how I vote
they are dead wrong. I say to
all of them, shut up about this
matter and get on about the
business of moving this coun-
try forward.
On a lighter note, I should
be grateful if you would for-
ward this note to Hon Shane
Gibson:
The Hon Shane Gibson
Nassau, Bahamas
Dear Minister,
I tried reaching you at your
office yesterday afternoon but
your secretary said that you
had left early to get ready for
an immigration raid scheduled
for last night. Bravo! I hope
you get as many as you can;
just be sure that you check
their papers before throwing
them in the bus. As your
employer I do not wish to
have any more immigrants
suing the government; we
really can't afford it!
However, I digress. The rea-
son for this note is to let you
know that someone called
Anna telephoned. Actually,
she didn't call me, not directly.
Apparently she was trying to
reach you but BaTelCo had a
cross-line and the call came
through on my GSM. This was
very shocking because at the
time I was in the western part
of the island at a restaurant
and, as you may know, usual-
ly BaTelCo has "no service"
in those circumstances.
Anyway, before I get off-
track again, this Anna asked
me to give you a message as
she was in a hurry. She said
to ask you to please pass by
Bamboo Shack and bring her
two conch snacks (one with
mayonnaise), one breast snack
with ketchup/no hot sauce and
one thigh piece, extra hot
sauce. I started to tell her that
I didn't think that you, as a
Minister in the government,
would have the time for that
but she cut me off saying the
you were a close personal
friend. So anyway, I hope you
get this message, and-all the
best to you in your round-ups.

o In brief


Alfre Sears speaks

on foreign teachers
EDUCATION Minister Alfred
Sears said there is no need to apolo-
gise for recruiting teachers from
neighboring countries such as Cuba
and Haiti.
"We must be unapologetically
committed to the national develop-
ment of our people," Mr Sears said.
"We recruit teachers from all over
the world, and we do not apologise
to anyone that we recruit teachers
from our neighbours, that is the
Republic of Cuba and the Republic
of Haiti."
The minister was speaking on
Monday as he welcomed 14 new
Cuban teachers to the country.
He said that students in some
*remote Family Islands, as well as in
'New Providence, will benefit from
the expertise of the 14 Cuban teach-
ers.
Orientation for the Cuban teach-
ers was held at the Uriah McPhee
School on Kemp Road, where they
were also welcomed by Bahamas
Union of Teachers president Ida
Poitier-Turnquest and Cuban
Ambassador Felix Wilson.
The Cuban teachers were also
joined by -two Haitian-born teach-
ers.
The group of teachers will focus
on Spanish, mathematics, physical
and special education and other
areas.
Mr Sears said the project must all
be looked at in the context of the
overall relations between the
Bahamas and Cuba.
Last month, the Cuban govern-
ment upgraded its Consulate in the
Bahamas to embassy status, and the
Bahamas has established an embassy
with a resident ambassador in Cuba.
Mr Sears noted that the Bahamas
did not only focus on Cuba in finding
talent to help boost education.
Recruitment, he said, was taking
place in the United States, the Unit-
ed Kingdom, Canada, Asia, the
Caribbean and Africa. So far over
1,000 foreign teachers have been
recruited.

"While persons tend to
become less independent as
they age, there must still be
opportunities for participation
in social, political and
economic activities to the
level that older persons
are comfortable with."

Minister of Social Services
Melanie Griffin


IN EFFORTS to raise the
awareness of the community
regarding issues relating to old-
er people, the Ministry of
Social Services announced
plans for Older Persons Month
2006 yesterday.
Minister of Social Services
Melanie Griffin said: "While
persons tend to become less
independent as they age, there
must still be opportunities for
participation in social, politi-
cal and economic activities to
the level that older persons are
comfortable with."
Mrs Griffin said that longer
life expectancy should be cele-
brated and, because of this,
there should be adequate pro-
vision to meet the needs of
persons who live longer. She
pointed out that financial secu-
rity is an issue for most peo-
ple as "aging is accompanied
by a decline in earnings."
Mrs Griffin said that many
older people do not get suffi-
cient daily exercise and encour-
aged persons in the fitness
community to assist with the
provision of age appropriate
fitness programmes.
She noted: "Access to
affordable and preventive ser-
vices is a major concern among
oIde c p~ rson who 'hliave-a ''
greater risk of suffering a iite'
ahd chronic disease." '
Mrs Griffin said the govern-
ment has also made four units
available in the Newbold


Street rental complex to make
living arrangements more
affordable for senior citizens.
Jane Adderley,, spokesper-
son for The National Council
on Older Persons, said: "The
National Council on Older
Persons has put in place a
number of programmes in
which we feel can sensitise the
older person to what is really
available for them in this coun-
try and to help them enjoy the
twilight years of their lives."
The programme includes:
The annual dinner and show
at Workers Bank, The Nation-
al Council on Older Persons
Seminar for high school stu-
dents, The National Insurance
Card Programme, The Birth-
day Card Programme and a
programme that enables senior
citizens to make transactions
at the bank without standing
on long lines. Mrs Adderley
noted that future programmes
are in the works.
The theme for this 9th annu-
al Older Persons' Month is
"Improving the Quality of Life
for Older Persons." The Min-
istry of Social Services and The
National Council on Older
Persons look forward to the
International Day of Aging on
Sund.ay, OcLioh,b,-11 2006t-1" '
' "Agi'ig'does not signal the
end 'cf'life, rather it ptWides
the opportunity to explore and
be active in other ways,"
according to Mrs Griffin.


Bahamian cultural


team safe after


earthquake strikes


Trinidad and Tobago

ALL members of a Bahamian cultural team visiting
Trinidad and Tobago for a Caribbean festival were declared
safe yesterday after the country was struck by an earthquake.
Worried relatives were assured that none of the visiting par-
ty was hurt as the two-island nation was rocked by a 5.5 mag-
nitude quake just after 9am.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA)
said the quake occurred between Trinidad and Tobago at 9.08
am less than five kilometres off the north coast of Trinidad.
Tremors were felt throughout Trinidad, Tobago, Venezuela
and St Vincent. There were no reports of injuries but sever-
al reports of minor damage, including cracked walls. Wide-.
spread disruption of electricity and consequential water out-
ages were reported in Trinidad and Tobago.

Concern
Bahamian family and friends of relatives in Trinidad and
Tobago as members of the CARIFESTA team expressed
concern about their well-being, particularly given the difficulty
in communicating with Trinidad and Tobago.
NEMA said that government officials had communicated
with officials of the Ministry of Cultural Affairs in Trinidad
who hac' advised that all members of the Bahamas' CAR-
IFESTA team were safe and well.
NEMA said it would keep the public abreast of the after-
effects of the earthquake as the situation warranted.

TEN British police offi-
cers recruited as part of
St. Lucia's bid to fight ris-
ing crime in the
Caribbean island will
begin arriving in Novem-

Press.
The officers, who have
special skills including
crime analysis and intelli-
gence, will be hired on
two-year contracts, said
Cabinet Secretary James
Fletcher, head of St. Luci-
a's civil service.
The positions were paid
for from a petroleum fund
set up by the 15-member
Caribbean Community.
St. Lucia officials asked
Britain earlier this year to
help recruit police follow-
ing two years of increas-
ing drug crimes and
record murder rates.
There were 37 murders in
both 2004 and 2005 in the
nation of 168,000, and 30
homicides have been
reported so far this year.
There also has been
recent high-profile crimes
against foreigners, includ-
ing a British woman who
was found stabbed to
death in August and the
attack on a Dutch man
and a French woman in
June as they slept on a
yacht moored off St. Luci-
a's north coast.

to 10 business days," she said.
Aconsul officer will travel
to Freeport and accept appli-
cations at the US Pre Clear-
ance Office in Freeport. The
passports are valid for 10
years.

processing of visa applications
at the Embassy in Nassau.

Online
"You fill it out online and
then print it. When you print
out the form off the Internet,
it will come out with a bar
code so that when you go to
the embassy we can scan the
bar code and a reader would
put all information into the
system," she explained.
Persons who do not have
access to a computer may fill
out an application online at
an Internet Cafe.
Mrs Ramadan is also urg-
ing American citizens living
in Grand Bahama and
the Family Islands to
register online at travelregis-
tration.state.gov so they can
be notified of important ser-
vices, changes and advisories.
"We came here today and
everyone on our registration
list, we send out an email say-
ing that we are going to be in
Freeport so we can facilitate
passport applications here.
But, also if there is an emer-
gency and Americans need to
be evacuated we will be able
to notify them."

Ramadan stated that she was
very impressed with airport
facility and pre-clearance

persons of the new passport
initiative.

three weeks ago; Iam so
impressed with what I have
seen and the co-operation and
great friendship that seems to
exist between our two coun-
tries and the amount of
interest in travel to the
Bahamas from the US," she
said.

WHY YOU VEX?

"I vex because many religious denom-

weekly for the pastors and build-

lections are also for the saints,
fatherless, widows and
needy among you. These
leeches are receivers, not
givers, no wonder their
collection dries up and
they become beggars.
They neglect their own."

. "We are standing up for our
rights and we will continue to
stand and preserve the rights of
union members," he said.
Power Company CEO Dave
Dunbar, who has criticized the
union as being unreasonable in
its proposal, has recently left the
island.
Roger Johnson, public and
community relations director,
did not wish to comment on the
strike when contacted by The
Tribune.
Mr Knowles said that the
union has sent in a new propos-
al.
"We want someone who can
make decisions because the pres-
ident and CEO Mr Dave Dun-
bar has already jumped ship. He
is gone and is no longer here,
and we want our agreement
signed!" he demanded.
"Sir Albert is chairman of the
board for the Power Company,
and like Mr St George he usual-
ly steps in, and we need to see
someone stepping in now to
resolve this matter," he said.


* THE scene at the demonstration yesterday.

Mirant Corporation, which
acquired 50 per cent shares in
the Power Company several
years ago, is in the process of
selling off their shares in the
company.
The union is seeking better
increments in salary increases
and retirement provisions for
workers, particularly those long
standing employees, some of
whom have worked with the
company for 40 years.
Mr Knowles accused the pre-
sent management of using
stalling tactics during negotia-
tions to frustrate the union and
its workers.


Call for PM to act


or resign over fight

FROM page one

Mr Stuart said that at this time the PM needs to show that he is
the leader, and deal with this situation head-on.
He said that if the PM is trying to downplay this by trying to pre-
.tend that it didn't happen or has been exaggerated "then he is
just as guilty."
"The problem with our leadership," he said, "is that we don't
accept responsibility when we are wrong. But we would gladly
accept things when they go in our favour. But when it doesn't go in
. ur favour we try and deflect things and make it look as if it is not
a real issue. But it is a real issue.
S."The PM is now bringing down his own credibility because
everyone knows what happened no matter where you are. I just
came from Grand Bahama and they are upset about the issue.
They know exactly what is happening, and they know exactly what
happened in the Cabinet Room because the ministers are talking,
and those who were there are talking it. So for the PM to come out
and say that he met with both individuals and there is no big issue
is a lie." Mr Stuart said that the PM now needs to acknowledge the
fact. "And we have since asked for his resignation as well," he said.

claimed it a very "sad day" for

"If Mr St George was here this

BDM leader Cassius Stuart
criticized the government for its
lack of concern for the workers
in Freeport.
"As leader of country we
would expect the Prime Minister
and the Minister of Labour to
step in and address the matter, to
show some kind of concern to
these individuals, he said.
He said that for far too long
the workers in Grand Bahama,
at Royal Oasis, Grand Bahama
Port Authority, and now the
Power Company, have been
treated badly.
"We are here to support the
workers of Grand Bahama Pow-
er Company... want to stand up
for those individuals who are
constantly being manipulated
and abused by multinational cor-
porations, raising utility rates
affecting everyone, and have
workers being mistreated and
their rights being abused and
pushed aside;" he said.
"You can't come to these peo-
ple's door knocking for votes,
but not be concerned about how
they are being treated. For far
too long the right of people in
Grand Bahama have been tram-
pled on."
Treasurer Sidney Carroll said
that workers in the country must
be first and foremost. "I think
that any sensible authority
should look into the matter," he
said.

* GOLF
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
PRESIDENT of the
Bahamas Golf Federation
(BGF) Agatha Delancey has
formulated a plan which she
hopes will propel the sport
of golf in the country.
Delancey, who revealed
just some of the objectives
on an annual calendar she is
putting together for the
review of the executive
board, said she, has found a
new commitment to the
sport and is ready to go full
plunge ahead td ensure the
success.:
She said: "There are so
many things I; have planned,
but I really don't want too
reveal to many of them to
you-because I still have to
await the response of the
executive bdard and the
Minister himself.
"But one thing's for sure, I
am fully committed to the
sport of golf and want to see
it reach a very high pinnacle
in the Bahamas.
"I know that it will take a
full day's work to get some
of the business of the federa-
tion out and there aren't to
many persons in the execu-
tive board who will be able
to do that. So I've'took on
the responsibilities full time,
opening an office, because
it's just that much that has to
be done."
The office of the BGF will
serve as information booth
for all persons interested in
golf in the Bahamas.
Delancey"revealed that the
office will assist tourist and
local players with future
tournament schedules and
the arrangement of games.
Although the office hasn't
been officially opened by
Delancey and BGF execu-
tive members, Delancey said
the ball should be rolling by
the next local tournament.
The annual Fred Higgs
Corporate Golf Challenge
classic is set for the end of
October at the Cable Beach
Golf course.,
Theirecently elected presi-
dent also made mention of
continuing the junior pro-
gramme. ,
Tie annual junior golf
programme resumed last '
Saturday at the Cable Beach
Golf course. with more than
15 junior golfers teeing up.
Due to the increasing
numbers on the junior level;
Delancey said she will
explore the avenue of host-
ing more tournaments so the
interest level would not
decline.
She said: "We don't have
the access to the courses that
we would like.to. We are
very grateful for the Cable
Beach Golf course, because
that is the only course we
have to either practise on or
host tournaments.
"So I've come up with the
idea of putting together a
calendar of events for all the
golfers, juniors and seniors.
This calendar will schedule
both local and international
Tournamentss"


Sands considers


thiir term at


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
'ALTHOUGH he moved
from vice president to take on
the role of.'president of the
Bahamas Association of Ath-
letic Associations, Mike Sands
said he's still contemplating
being nominated for his first
full three-year term.
The BAAA will go to the
polls on November 4 when it
hosts its annual general meet-
mg. No venue or time has been
released as yet. .
Sands, who replaced
Desmond Bannister two years


ago after the latter resigned
Because of "personal commit-
ments," said he is seriously con-
sidering re-election.
"I have not turned my atten-
tion to the elections because
there are still a lot of things on
the table that I want to focus
my attention on," he charged.
"But I'm satisfied that my per-
formance will speak for itself.
'"I'm seriously thinking about
it, but I haven't yet turned my
attention to an election cam-
paign because I'm doing the
things that need to be done for
the federation on a consistent
basis and hopefully the mem-


bership will see these things as
part of the election process and
they would allow me to contin-
ue to do these tliins."

Coaching:
On Sunday, Sands' long-timne
mentor and coach Harry
Groves will arrive in town to
conduct a coaching clinic from
Monday to October 13.
Sands said this is one of the
ways he wants to -make a
change to with respect to get-
ting athletes to change their
mentality from having e\eryv-

body. concentrating on just run-
ning the sprints.
"I've been talking to the
coaches one-on-one and telling
them that we have to find the
Lynden Sands, Steve Hannas
and Lavern Eves," charged.
"I'm happy with the athletes'
performances, but there is still
a lot more work to be done on
the administrative side with
myself and the executives and
also from the.overall pro-
gramme."
Sands said if he's re-elected,
he will continue with that goal,
which is to help them obtain
athletic scholarships to colleges


and universities in the United
States.
There is no indication yet if
anybody will challenge Sands
and just who will be back to
contest their posts.
"I have been encouraging all
of them because a number of
persons have been coming to
me, saying that they are inter-
ested in running.
"I've been telling them to
come out and contest any post
from the president down
because when you put together
slates like t hat, you
start to annihilate some per-
sons."


Mike Sands invites his

former coach for clinic
* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Siports Reporter
BAHAMAS Association of Athletic Association's president
Mike Sands has invited his former coach Harry Groves to visit the
Bahamas to conduct a coaching clinic.
Groves, who coached by Sands during his heydays at Penn State
University, will be in town from Sunday through October 13. He just
recently retired from Penn State after 38 )ears at the helm of their
athletic team.
"When you look at his track record, I think it's a plus for us
that he has accepted my invitation to come, particularly since its ear-
ly in the summer," Sands stated.
S"What I would like to see happen is that he can share his knowl-
edge with the coaches and athletes in terms of getting the athletes
read) for competition."
With the athletes now plunged into their off-season training,
Sands said it would be an ideal opportunity for Groves to come in
and help the BAAA's.
"I really want to bring a balance to the BAAA's," Todd stated.
During his visit here, Sands said that Groves will conduct a num-
ber of coaching clinics and share some information with them and
the athletes one-on-one as well.
Groves is also due to visit Grand Bahama and Abaco to conduct
clinics there.
"I think it's abig plus for our programme overall to have some-
one of his cal bre, knowledge and experience to come in and spend
some time with us." Sands stressed.
"Obviously, he comes in with a wealth of experience.
"All of my success can be attributed to him," said Sands, who won
numerous collegiate titles under the tutelage of Groves. 'I'm just
happy that he is going to be here."
In his 50th season, 35th at Penn State coaching track and field and
cross-country, Harry Groves says the Big Ten offers the biggest chal-
lenge of his coaching career.
"To compete in the Big Ten automatically makes you a solid
team, because of the great competition in this league," he
said.
The 2000 season was highlighted by the Nittany Lion Track and
Field and Cross-Country teams both claiming IC4A titles.
As of Jan 1, 2001, Groves' career win/loss record for dual meets
was 811-173-2 (82.4 winning percentage), including his tenure at
William and Mary, where he coached 13 years before coming to
Penn State in the fall of 1968.
At Penn State, the break down is 158-41 (79.4 winning percent-
age) for indoor meets, 151-20-1 (88.3 winning percentage) for out-
door meets and 258-39-1 (86.9 winning percentage) for cross-coun-
try.
His total Penn State record is 573-100-2 (85.1 winning percentage)
combined for the three sports.
In addition, Groves' teams have excelled in hundreds of invita-
tionals and championship meets including winning eight coveted
ICAAAA titles, outdoors in 1974, 1986, 1987, and 1988; indoors in
1984, 1987, and 2000; cross country in 2000, and had several top
three finishes since 1968 in all three phases of the sport, before
entering the Big Ten Conference in 1991-92. The cross-country
team was fourth in 1991 and third in 1992, 1993, 1994, and 2000 and
fifth in 1996 at the Big Ten Championships.

Andrei Volokitin v Alex
Morozevich, Biel grandmasters
2006. Russia's world number
nine, Moro, won the event in
impressive style against a strong
field, and in today's puzzle he
showed the difference between
a top GM and an ordinary
master or expert. The game was
shown live on several chess
intemet sites, where watching
spectators almost unanimously
waited for the Muscovite to
make the very obvious check
Bd6+ picking up Volokitin's b8
rook. When Moro instead went
2...Bc5, there was consternation
among the large web audience,
many of whom assumed it was a
transmission error. But Bc5 was
for real, and the best move. Can
you explain why Black rejected
the rook-bishop material win?


SATURDAY,
SEPTEMBER 30
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Whmn an opportunity comes your',.'

matter of doing some hard work..
Don't whine ... Just get the job.
done quickly.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
You desire a much-needed rest from

VIRGO Aug 24Sept 22
Stop being so bossy, Virgo. You are

.comes off as an abrasive attitude.
Worry about yourself instead.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
You may have just found the perfect-
love match, Libra. Hold on to this
