US Ambassador John
Rood said that it was sicken-
ing to hear how drug accused
Samuel "Ninety" Knowles
was being hailed as a "folk
hero" durmg his extradition
proceedings to thelJS.
Agreeing with Independent
MP for St Margaret Pierre
Dupuch, the ambassador said
that for every person phon-
ing in to radio stations sup-
porting Knowles, there should
have been 10 other people
calling m to condemn him.
"It was not sad that some
people would support him,
because I understand, they
have been convinced, they
have been bought. But what
about the others? For eve"

"If these people can't sleep,
neither will they (the govern-
ment)."
The Attorney General's
office has been repeatedly con-
tacted by the group, who are
seeking advicenon their situa-
tion, but theit calls have been
"ignored," Mr Bain claimed.
An environment of height-
ened anxiety has grown up
around the victim's campaign
for justice since they began
receiving threats on their lives
and livelihoods earlier this
week.
"People living in the
Bahamas are being forced to be
in fear for their lives. I don't
think this should happen in any
civil country anywhere in this
world," said Mr Bain.
But he warned those respon-
sible for the threats that the
group will not be silenced.
"They are people who don't
want what we are doing. I want
to warn them if they are gov-
ernment that'we are not afraid
of the government. If they are
tr,:Try :2 s se:-p ,::
sai ed cried the group as a
"new breed of Bahamian" who
will not be pressured into giving
uD their cause in the face of vic-
timisation.
The group has collected
phone numbers, and even alan-
aged to make a permanent
recording of one of the mes-
sages left on an answerphone
by a muffled, whispering voice.
The caller threatened that
the situation is "deeper.than
you think and that "I will take
away everything from you."
The group has passed the
information on to the CID, who
are said to be taking the issue
very seriously.
As far as who might be
responsible for the threats, the
group says that there would be
man\ people who are "con-
cerned with us not getting our
just due."
He speculated that it could
be someone close to the owners
of the boat, or close to govern-
ment "because the government
is also at fault." Whoever is
responsible for the calls, he, and
others in the group, believe it
is all part of a "big cover-up."
The group has consistently
sought to point'out that their
increasingly vocal campaign is
not partisan.
"This is not no PLP this is
not no FNM we are just
speaking up for the people,"
said Mr Williams, one of the
victims.

victimsBetty Antonio-alsoa

By KARIN HERIG
TribuneStafrReporter
WITH an estimated 60 inetric
tons of cocaine entering Haiti
last year, and the Bahamas seen
as a likely corridor for the
smuggling of these drugs, US
Ambassador John Rood
applauded the Bahamas gov-
ernment's ongoing initiatives to
partner with Haiti in the fight
against illegal drugs.
Speaking at the US/Bahamas
Counter Narcotics Joint Task
Force meeting thas week,
Ambassador Rood praised the
Bahamas for providing training
at the Police College for mem-
hers of the Haitian National
Police.
"We hieve seen in the past
few years how Haiti has become
a preferred destination for
cocaine from South America.
Our experts estimate that sixty
metric tons of cocaine entered
Haiti last year. Common sense
and seizure statistics tell us that
Haiti is not the ultimate desti-
nation for this contraband," he
said,
The allabassador said the
Bahamas provides the "short-

THE e-mail being sent

The e-mail, currently in cir-

The anonymous e-mail warns

ANNA Nicole Smith is back
in the US to meet with a feder-
al mediator today.
Entertainment Tonight
reported yesterday that the for
mer Playboy playmate aird con-
troversial Bahamian resident
has returned to California to
meet with a federal mediator to
determine her share of her late
husband's estate which is esti-
mated to be in the hundreds of
millions of dollars.
Ms Smith, 39, reportedly
arrived at the Ninth Circuit Fed-
eral Courthouse in San Fran-
cisco to meet with a federal
judge and the family of her late
billionaire husband, 7 Howard
Marshall II, over her share of
the fortune he left behind.
According to Entertainment
Tonight, Ms Smith arrived by
taxi, btindled in a black coat and
wearing dark sunglasses, accom-
panied by her partner and
lawyer Howard K Stern.
Mr Marshall, who died at the
age of 90 in 1995, just 14 months
after marrying.Ms Smith, did
not include her in his will.
After his death the former
reality-ty star became involved
in a court.battle with her for-
mer stepson, E Pierce Marshall,
who died on June 20, 2006, at
the age of 67 after contracting
an infection. In 2001, she lost
her case during a file-nionth
Texas state court jury trial,
upholding Marshall's n ill and
trust.
However, on May 1, 2006, the
US Supreme Court overturned
this .decision on jurisdictional
g rounds, allowing Ms Smith
another opportunity to pursue
her claims in federal court.
This is the first time she has
reft her new home in the
Bahamas since she arrived in
the country to gile birth to her
second child in September.
Just days after her datighter
Dannie Lynn Hope was deliv-


ered by Caesarean, her 20-year-
old son Daniel died in her room
at Doctors Hospital.
This com&s on the heels of
the announcement that pho-
tographer Larry Birkhead has
started his paternity action
against Smith in the Bahamas
Supreme Court.
He is suing the former reality
show star for alleged conspiracy,
libel, slander and fraudulent
misrepresentation as part of his
bid to assert his claim that he is
father of her three-month-old
daughter.
Mr Birkhead was also set to
attend a California court hear-
ing with his lawyer Debra Opri
this week for a ruling on a
paternity test. He claims Ms
Smith and her daughter fall
under the jurisdiction of the
Californian courts and wants a
DNA test to prove he is the
father.
,Notice of the Bahamas action
was filed by the law firm Alex-
Iou Knowles and Company.
Anna Nicole Smithis listed as a
defendant under her other
name, Vicki Lynn Marshall,
with her lawyer-lover Howard
K Stern and the Registrar Gen-
eral of the Bahamas.
Claims for damages have


been lodged against her and Mr
Stern alleging conspiracy an
making a joint request to the
Registrar General for Mr Stern
to be listed as father of Dannie
Lynn Hope, who was born at
Doctors Hospital on Septem-
ber 7.
Mr Birkheadalsoallegeslibel
and slander in documents
signed by Ms Smith and Mr
Stern claiming thatheisnot the
father. IIr addition, Mr Bikk-
head is seeking damages for
alleged fraudulent misrepre-
sentation in statements to the
Registrar Generat claiming Mr
Stern is the father
The action against all three
defendantsseeksanardershik-
ing the name'Stern'fromthe
birth register to be replaced by
'Birkbead'.
Mr Birkhead, a media pho-
tographer in Los Angeles,
claims to have had a two-year
relationship with Ms Smith
before she came to the
Bahamas earlier this year. t
He said they hatd been
preparing a horne together for 1
their child before she and Mr a
Stern movedtoNassau.
Ms Smith and Mr Sterahave
. two weeks to respond to the .
court action.

opened other avenues of coop
eration, he said.
"In the past year alone we
have finahsed the Container
Security Initiative and Mega-
ports Programme at the
Freeport Container Port.
"The continued success of the
shiptider programme, an out-
growth of the Comprehensive
Maritime Agreement signed in
2004,whichallowsRBDFmem-
bers to make arrests in Bahami-
an waters from onboard US
CoastGuardvesselsremainsa
model for the region," he said.
In addition to this, he said,
the State Partnership Pro-
gramme between Rhode Island
and the Bahamas is providing
the Bahamas with expertise in
disaster preparation, prison
management and fire fighting
among other areas.
Ambassador Rood pointed
out that the co-operation of
Bahamian law enforcement also
played a key role in the US
Department of Defence's deci-
sion to include the Bahamas in
the "Enduring Friendship" pro-
gramme.
"This programme will pro-
vide millions of dollars in assets
and training to the Royal
Bahamas Defence Force,
including two go-fast vessels
with state of the art radar and
communications equipment.
"All of these programmes
came about because of the sug
cess of our law enforcement
relationship embodied by Oper-
ations Bahamas, Turks and
Caicos," he said.


that US President Geor e W
. 8
Bush assured him of his sup-
port for the OBPAT mission
when he visited with the presi-
dent in Washington, DC,
recently.
The ambassador said that
while the Bahamas may lose its
Army helicopter support, he is
more than confident that the
US' fixed-wing aircraft sta-
tioned in Cuba, Florida and
Exuma will make up for any
shortcomings.
, Ambassador Rood said he
expects a final decision in this
matter in early 2007.


"There is a broad agreement
.
withm the United States gov-
ernment, including among
members of Congress, that
OPBAT remains vital to our
common effort to combat drug
trafficking and that the mis-
sion's capabilities must be main-
tained or strengthened," he
said.
As it was his third and final
Joint Task Force meeting,
Ambassador Rood took the
opportunity to thank the
Bahamas for its "steadfast
efforts in our joint fight against
narcotics trafficking and illegal
migration."
"I look back upon the past
two-and a half years with a clear
sense of accomplishment. Oxir
joint commitment to fight nar-
cotics trafficking and illegal
migration has resulted in a con-
tinually decreasing flow of
cocaine through the Bahamas
and increased interdiction of
illegalmigrants,"hesaid.
While progress has been
made in combatting drug traf-
ficking, "we must be as nimble
and flexible in our response to
narcotics and migrant traffickers
as they are in adjusting their
tactics to our pressure," he said.
However, in a time of bud-
getary challenges, the ambas-
sador said, requests for further
funds for such missions must be
justified with concrete facts that
demonstrate that the efforts are
producing results.
The partnership established
through OBPAT between the
US and the Bahamas has also

so how do we correct this?
1) The system is good except
a bad cheque writer simply pays
a reinstatementfee after n citing
the bad cheque and bingo they
can write cheques again. I pro-
pose that if a person writes two
bad cheques within 30-days
bingo they are not reinstated
on the list except after they can
prove that they have not written
a bad cheque for 26-weeks (six-
months). If there is no pumsh-
ment this will never reduce.
2) The act of writing an insuf-
ficient funds cheque, a bad
cheque, which the banks return
must be made an offence in
any society it is so. The prac-
tice of writing bad cheques is a
nuisance to the banks and the
merchants and is costly.


EDITOR, The Tribune. .
THIS past week at a seminar
on Crime a representative of
one of our larger food stores
Indicted that they were receiv-
mg a lot of bad cheques as he
called them cheques written
by a customer knowing full well
there were no funds in the bank.
This practice is age-old and
There was an attempt to solve
it with the introduction some
years ago of a service where you
had a card with a number and if
you write an insufficient funds
cheque all the subscribing mer-
chants simply are alerted not to
take your cheque. No business
should have any bad cheques
with the system if its works cor-
rectly.
This service now costs the
honest cheque writer $40 a
.year! From what the represen-
tative of the food chain seems to
intply that service is not reduc-
ing the number of bad cheques,


I really find it a nuisance and
annoyance that this card Com-
pany also annually goes through
a useless foolish exercise of try-
ing to suggest they offer any
service of value. A warning to
everyone who has one of these
cards do not complete the
survey form and give that pri-
vate information it is none
of their business.
Our Consumer Affairs peo-
ple need to quickly look at the
Privacy issue of personalinfor-
mation and put in place modern
.and appropriate legislation to
safeguard what can be asked
and what can be insisted on as
whispers in the wind indicate
that there is at least one busi-
ness group who will be asking
us all kinds of private questions
to get an electronic customer
card. Privacy is privacy.

TWO San Francisco reporters whose work
prompted a congressional investigation and a
new steroid testing policy for Major League
Baseball face the threat of up to a year and a
half in prison for refusing to reveal the source of
leaked grand jury testimony.
Last week, Washington State Attorney Gen-
eral Rob McKenna and 24 of his counterparts
filed a compelling court brief supporting key
pomts m the reporters' legal appeal.
The consequences are high. Should the
reporters lose that appeal and continue to pio-
tect their sources, a judge has said he will send .
them to prison for up to 18 months. The sen-
tence would be much longer than those given
any of five criminal defendants convicted in the
steroid-distribution scandal the reporters wrote
about.
Press freedom advocates and news industry
professional groups had hoped the case of
reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance
Williams of the San Francisco Chronicle might
create a new sense of urgency for congression-
al passage of a federal shield law that would
place limits on the times prosecutors, grand
juries, civil litigants and others could seek to
compel reporters to identify confidential
sources.But the US Congress went home last
week with the proposed shield law still stalled by
comnuttee squabbles. a legislative history that
closely p\rallel- 14hin hqppened to .= ploposed

resume next year in Congress and legislatures of
states such as Washington that have no statutory
shield protection,
The proposed Washington state shield law,
which would have codified a common-law priv-
ilege recognized in Washington since 1982,
passed the House 87-11 but never got a final
vote in the state Senate.
- In every state but Wyoming, a privilege to
protect confidential sources is either spelled
out in statute or recognized by courts based on
common law. In 19 of those states, the privilege
is absolute and in at least 34 states, the attorneys
general argue, the San Francisco reporters
wouldn't have.to testify before a grand jury
under state law.
argPeed sa n ,on g 1
rations based on "experience" support the
recognition of a reporter's privilege to keep
sources and source materials confidential in
most cases.
The "free flow of information is vital to the


workings of a healthy democracy," New York
Gov-elect Eliot Spitzer wrote in the brief for the
state attorneys general. Some of "the most
important",information "often comes from
sources who need or prefer to remain confi-
dential," the brief said.
In the reporters' appeal to 9th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals, attorneys for the Hearst
Corp., which owns the San Francisco newspaper
and the Seattle P-I, argue that the judge who
sentenced the reporters should have consid-
ered the "enormously beneficial public impact
of the Chronicle's reporting" and weighed that
against the minimal harm caused by the grand
jury leak the government is investigating.
Such a balancing test, .Hearst's brief con-
tends, should be required under constitutional
precedent, federal common law and eviden-
tiary rules of the federal judiciary. And such a
test undoubtedly would weigh in favour of
quashing the subpoenas that demand the San
Francisco reporters' sources.

Iwas delighted during the vis-

ers consisted of very well edu-

appear to be tery knowledge-
able and dedicaled. I was
impressed by the team of Sgt
Kellie Mackey, MSC, Pgd; Sgt
Chrislyn Skippings, B A; Cpl
Yvonne Hunter, MBA, BSc

course facilitator. I was told that
they are all products of the Col-

there are many others in the

you would publish this letter so
that the public would know

"We have seen a steady

Thompson's life occurred

Beverly was torpedoed and all
but four men lost their lives.
Returning home
After four years in His
Majesty's Royal Navy, Mr
Thompson was able to return
home one week before the
war in Europe ended.
"It was like heaven. I was
delighted to be home, but some
part of me wanted to be in Lon-
don where it [the end of the
war] really meant something."
Even with a close-knit family
to welcome him back, Mr
Thompson said he could physi-
cally feel the 3,000 miles that
separated him from London.
"People reacted in different
ways. We went to a party on
Cable Beach, a picnic really and
some of the people saw the end
of the war as a reason to party,
[but] it really meant something
to me."
The Long Day Wanes in is
the story of a boy's passage into
manhood, of friendships
foa e lo Itie tested and
ily and ultimately, is proof of
the good that continues to abide
in the hearts of men who
respond to the call to protect
the principles of freedom and
live to tell their grandchildren
about it.

In his most recent work, The
Long Day Wanes...A Memoir
of Love and War, Chester
Thompson, author of The
Fledgling A Bahamian Boy-
hood, part of the Ministry of
Dedication's Reading List,
records his role in one of the
darkest chapters of world his-
tory m an attempt to honour
the many men and women who
fell in the fight for freedom,
never to return home to their
loved ones.
It is also an arresting por-
trayal of innocence and first
love, which set against the back-
drop of international turmoil,
is rendered all the more
poignant. .
To Mr Thompson however,
just as important as building a
bridge to the past, is the forging


of a connection to the future.
"I wrote this book so my
grandkids could have a glimpse
of what it was like for one of
their grandparents. Also, what-
ever artistic unpulses I have -
(were appeased) through the
written word. Wrote words
about it instead of painting a
picture."
Stripped of any romanticized
notion of war or heroism, Mr
Thompson maintains a system-
atic, bare-bones voice in his
account of his days as an Ordi-
nary Seaman, first on a mine-
layer, then on the HMS Bever-
ly, one of the many escort ships


assigned to the convoys mak-
ing their way across the
Atlantic, and then over his
entire career in the Royal Navy.
He allows the story to unfold
naturally, avoiding extravagant
dramatics and effusive emotion
-whichleavesthereaderfreeto
understand the truth of the
events as they occurred and to

"In the normal course of

The Mishap of

Low Cost Housing
.
In the next six months every political party formed and unformed will
be proclaiming its love of the poor Bahamians. They will all speak to
housing for the poor and less fortunate.

It has yet to dawn on anybody that government is the biggest contributor
to the high cost of low cost housing. For instance, a home costs 100,000
dollars to build 60 percent labour, 40 percent material: the material
costs will have one third duties attached.

Therefore 14,000 dollars of the total cost will go to the government and
would need to be borrowed. That means 7.5 percent interest over 20 year
mortgage the poor and less fortunate will pay almost 14,000 dollars of
interest or 14 percent of the cost of the home will be government
induced

Oh how they plan, or fail to plan!

"YES YOU CAN A BAHAMIAN PLAN"

40 YEARS-NOW THE PROMISE LAND


THIS week, In Days Gone By looks back at the Life of Sir Roland Symonette.
Roland "Pop" Symonette was born in the small island settlement of Current, Eleuthera. He was one
of many children of Methodist Minister Edwin Symonette and his wife, Lavania.
Although he had only six years of formal education, Sir Roland became one of the wealthiest men
of his generation. Self taught, he was a life-long advocate of education. He was a school teacher in his
early career but during Prohibition, 'ran' rum to the-United States.
With the profits from rum-running, Sir Roland invested in real estate, liquor stores and eventual-
ly, a shipyard.
In 1925, the young Roland Symonette campaigned successfully for a seat in the House of Assem-
bly. He served in the House, representing the Shirlea district, without interruption until his retirement
in 1977.
Sir Roland's 52 years as a member of parliament is the longest record of service in the House of
Assembly.
He served as the head of government from 1955 to 1964 when the country achieved internal self-
government and then became the first premier of the Bahama Islands. In 1959, he was knighted by
Queen Elizabeth II.
Sir Roland was married three times. By his first wife Nellie, Symonette he had one son, Basil Har-
court. By his second wife, the former Thelma Bell Clepper of Andalusia, Alabama, he had a son, Robert
"Bobby" and one daughter, Zelda. In the late 1940s,.Sir Roland married Canadian Margaret Frances.

Calendar is a true



' Amig o' for animals


~t~i~l


SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2006, PAGE 9


if


POTCAKE star Amigo is the
subject of a new 2007 Calend"
titled "Amigo Abroad -It Was
A Very Good Year" which
chronicles his amassing interna-
tional accomplishments over the
past year and a half.
Amigo's rescuer and owner,
honorary chairperson of the
Grand Bahama Humane Soci-
ety Frances Singer-Hayward
stated, "the Amigo calendars,
which have become a tradition,

kinopopreadthep ar2
mal care by highlighting the
amassing story of Amigo a for-
mer tragic stray potcake who
was rescued and rehabilitated
by someone who cared, and
went on to achieve fame and
fortune becoming a represen-
tative and ambassador of hope
for challenged animals both
here and abroad.
"As the former mascot and
poster boy for the Humane
Society of Grand Bahama,
Amigo's likeness appeared on
posters, adverts and clothing,
advertising the importance of
spay/neuter and proper care
and treatment of animals. He
has since gone on to appear on
CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, been
written about in international
magazines and newspapers'
starred at Mardi Gras, been
awarded the Hollywood Life
Breakthrough Award all of
which are chronicled in his new
calendar."
Mrs Singer-Hayward said
Amigo's story highlights the
wonderful potential of the liot-
cakes that so many Bahamians
take for granted, not realizing
how highly trainable and valu-
able they are not only as the
wonderful pets, but as poten-
tial aids in law enforcement.
She said Amigo's case proves
that they can also act as ambas-
sadors of goodwill on behalf of
our country. This is why, she
said, it is so important that pot-
cakes, as well as all animals, be
treated with the care and
respect that they deserve.
Mrs Singer-Hayward said the
county 5 tragicc" stray animal
problem must be curbed
through everyone spaying and
neutering their pets.
All proceeds from the sale of
the calendar will be donated to

sh mn o
Humane Society in Nassau.

hard court for an hile, so I
wanted to come out early and

As the match progressed,
Smith found himself having to
take a longer break whenever
they crossed over and glis ben-

"I feel good because he's a
pretty good player. I guess I
was just more physically fit
today," Rolle stressed. "But he
played a good game."
As for the lapse in the sec-

to get this one over him," said
18-year-old Rolle, who will be

Sands, 19, said he doesn't

Of course, all the cards had to be

Serge Volkov v Simon Wilitams,
Monarch Assurance Isle of Man
Open 2006. Williams, who is
poised to become Britain's
newest grandmaster, uses
strange openings and is a
specialist in imaginative attacks
against higher ranked
opponents, but he met his
match in today's diagram
against a solid and experienced
Russian. Volkov's plan of
advancing his 3-2 4ueens'sfiank
majority up the board is a
seful strategy to know and
often leads to breakthrough
tactics. WeH calculated sacrifices
can create a passed pawn which
runsthroughtopromotionto
queen. That was what GM
Volkoviookedforinthe
diagram, and his next four turns
forced Blackto resign. What
happened?
