P00t Suggestsbllobt over Cable Beach

SBy BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean~tribu nemed ia.net
NORTH Andros and Berry Islands MP Vincent Peet has sug-
gested that the doubt expressed by government on the Cable
Beach Resort deal can damage investor confidence in the country.
He challenged government to come forward and tell the public if
it does not have confidence in the Cable Beach Resort Develop-
ment
Mr Peet reminded the House of Assembly yesterday during the
debate on the resolution to authorize the government to transfer
land to the Cable Beach developers, that more than $100 million has

MORE than year after being
extradited to the United States,
accused "drug kingpin" Samuel
"Ninety" Knowles was yesterday
found guilty of two drug traffick-
ing charges by a Florida jury. ,
A US Grand Jury yesterday
convicted Knowles of conspiracy
to import cocaine and conspiracy
to distribute the illegal drug. He
was also convicted on the charge
of possessing cocaine with intent
to distribute.
This ruling came at the conclu-
sion of KnowHles' retrial before a
Fort Lauderdale jury.
Knowles is scheduled to appear
before a District Court Judge on
May 23 to be sentenced.
Designated as a "drug kingpin"
by US President George W Bush
under the Foreign Narcotics
Kingpin Designation Act -
Knowles was extradited to the
US to face trial there in 2006 on
an indictment dating from 2000.


The charges related to drug
crimes which took place mn the
mid-1990s.
Federal prosecutors have
alleged that he might have been
involved in the distribution of $1
billion worth of cocaine.
Knowles first appeared before
a Fort Lauderdale Grand Jury on
November 14, 2007.
The trial lasted only six days.
Knowles' defence rested its case
prematurely after two of their wit-
nesses failed to show up to testify.
On November, 27, 2007, a mhis.
trial was declared by the Fort
Lauderdale judge after the major-
ity of jurors were unable to reach
a verdict.
Knowles' second trial was
scheduled to start on February
19, 2008. However, the retrial had
to be postponed after the accused

THE PRIME Minister has
expressed doubts about the
ability of one of the two part-
ners itheeCable B ac Resort

dtEr~opct, top also ot
bly how the developers
attempted to pressure the for-
mer PLP government into
granting them additional con-
cessions totalling $255.6 mil-
lion.
Mr In graham told the
House, while speaking on a res-
olution to provide the govern-
ment with the authorization to
transfer portions of land in
Cable Beach to the developers
of the resort, that despite his
scepticism regarding Baha
Mar's ability to find financing,
he thinks Harrah's, its 0mnt

Esfakis inquest results 'a sign

judicial system functioning well'
THE results of the inquest into the death of Christopher Esfakis at
Doctors Hospital is a sign that the judicial system is functioning well,
according to one family member.
Leandra Esfakis, sister of Christopher Esfakis, issued a statement yes-
terday saying that the verdict should be considered important by all
Bahamians. *
"It is important to this country, at a time when the judicial system is
under attack for being dysfunctional, as the inquest confirms that the
judicial system can work: witnesses were called, evidence heard, and a
verdict delivered albeit five years late," she said.
On February 29, the Coroner's Court delivered a verdict in the
April, 2002 death of C~hristopher Esfakis, age 42, of "death by natural
causes with a substantial and significant contribution made by neglect."
According to the evidence given, Christopher Esfakis walked into
Doctors Hospital about lam Saturday, April, 20, 2002. He was admit-
ted for treatment for mostly first and second degree burns to 25 per cent
of his body. He died Monday, April 22, at 7pm.

THE TRIBUNE


WBy K(ARIN HIERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig~tribunemedia.net *
THE Bahamas Electrical
Workers Union is calling on
government to publicly disclose
all alleged financial irregulari-
ties at BEC and to hold those
responsible for the discrepan-
cies accountable.
This statement was made
yesterday by BEWU president
Dennis Williams after the FNYM
government revealed in the


House of Assembly last week
that BEC is losing millions of
dollars.
Mr Williams said that "a
monopoly like BEC, which
passes a significant cost of oil
onto the consumer via a fuel
charge, can make a reasonable
profit for the Bahamian tax-
payers.
However, the BEWU presi-
dent conceded that BEC can
only make a profit if the cor-
poration is run efficiently and
"prudent business decisions are


made in the best interest of the
corporation and the country."
Mr Williams also named sev-
eral factors, which in the
union's view are significantly
contributing to the financial
losses,
Giving his contribution to the
mid-year budget report last
week, Mmnister of State for
Public Utilities Phenton Ney-
mour disclosed that BEC's loss-
es for the 2006/2007 fiscal year,
which ended on September 30,
2007, are expected to amount


to $10.2 million. He added that
first reports also indicate that
losses in the 2007/2008 fiscal
year could be as high as $11
million,
The BEWU president yes-
terday sought to enlighten the
Bahamian public about the
union's views on why BEC is
losing money.
From the union's standpoint,
he said, one of the factors
which is causing BEC to oper-
ate at a loss is the "constant"
out-sourcing of contracts


amounting in the millions of
dollars, for work which BEC's
staff can efficiently perform.
The BEWU further claimed
that the refusal of BEC to col-
lect millions of dollars in rev-
enue each year from the medi-
um and large residential con-
sumers and the business com-
munity, as well as' the failure
to implement stringent policies,
is leading to the annual losses.
Another factor contributing
to the financial losses, accord-
ing to the BE`WU, is the pro-


MINISTER OF STATE for Public
Utilities Phenton Neymour dis-
d2 0062 fisa ya, hcrh eded
on September 30, 2007, are expect-
ed to amount to $10.2 million.

curemerit and operation of gas
turbines in BEC's power plants,
"which are approximately four
tunes more expensive to oper-
ate than cost effective slow-
speed diesel machines."
The cheaper, slow-speed
diesel machines, the union
added, are readily available in
the electrical utility industry.
The BEWU president said
that over the past few years the
union has noted several allega-
tions of financial irregularities
within BEC, "which may have
negatively impacted the
finances of the corporation."
"The union, therefore, calls
upon the government to report
to the public and to fully dis-
close the alleged irregularities
in BEC to the Bahamian tax-
payer and to make all, if any,
accountable who are responsi-
ble for such actions," the
EThe BEW ist dher call-
ing on government to fully dis-
close to the Bahamian people,
the contracts that were award-
. ed over past years and the con-

BEC.
Mr Williams said that the
union has not and will not allow
bad management, political
interference in the day-to-day
operationn of BEC, or the "con-
stant abuse and misuse of the
public funds" to negatively
impact the well-being of the
O00rpn staff employed at the

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I WISH to write a letter of
concern, directed mainly to
females travelling alone at the
Sir Lynden Pindling Interna-
tional Airport.
While travelling last week, I
had an earl slgh t nFlonida

since I arrived at the airport at
43d0 mk the morning it was fair-
Now I do realise that I
should have been more alert

soumd hsa e pid c oses ataenn-
tion to the signs, but I must
admit that when travelling
alone on the streets of Nas-
sau in recent times there is
a certain fear that exists due to
te ace asnth ciome rat i
ment refuses to setr tusly cdho

es thm. Soowhen I pulle u

made it impossible for me to
make my original flight, so I
was delayed for another two
hours.
It was after 11 o'clock on
Friday evening when I finally
made it through Customs and
I walked very quickly to the
parking lot to retrieve my
vehicle.
I looked in my wallet, and
realized I had about $17 in


sary funds to pay for the park-
ing, I wonder how many other
women he's used this line on,
and has benefited from it.
With the country in its cur-
rent state of fear due to the
increasing murders every day
and uncertainty of what is
goingatnodhhap eto our econ-
looking to the church for
answers to solve the problems
.with young men, how are we
(women particularly) to feel
safe when public servants (I
assume) can tell innocent
women (because I know he
would never say that to a
man) to give him somethingg
of value" to get out of paying
the $30 parking fee, and how
many times has the airport's
till suffered for his folly.
I was outraged, but after
reversing my car and picking
up my passenger (who was a
man), and going back to the
window to pay my $30 for one
day parking he had nothing
to say. Had I not had any
more money, had I not had
an extra passenger travelling
with me that night, what
would have been my fate that
night at the airport, and more
importantly how many other
women has he done this to?
It may not be a grave con-
cern for men who can handle
themselves,. but for business
women and single women like
me who travel alone this is '
important, and I hope you can
make sure other women get
to see this as well if only
Sto be aware.

attracted the investor to it in the first place.
It has to be decided whether an investor
will be allowed to dredge a canal for a mari-
na through a beach, which, as far back as
memory goes, was open to the whole com-
munity. Residents of Delaporte are com-
plaining about how their beach has been
eroded by the Sandyport development and its
canal. From time to time Sandyport replaces
the sand sucked from the Delaporte beach by
its development. Here again government can-
not just stipulate that a developer has to

project. It has to stipulate the quality of that
replacement. We have photographs of sand
replacement at Delaporte that contains large
boulders, all kinds of undesirable debris'
including dangerous metal objects, and dis-
carded building material. It is a disgrace that
anyone should be allowed to get away with
this. The affected Delaporte residents should
immediately do something about it and
demand that the replaced sand be sifted
before it is returned to their beach.
We have the Montagu Beach, which
Bahamians still enjoy, but it is certainly not

One of New Providence's most magnifi-
cent beaches was destroyed when Crystal
Palace was allowed to build on it instead of
across the road which would have pro-
tected the hotel from the ravages of storms,
and retained the beach for both visitors and
Bahamians. The location of this hotel also
undermined the beach of the nearby Nassau
Beach Hotel.
Decisions have to be made about truckers
digging up beaches to supply sand to builders.

cut down there is nothing to protect resi-
dents from a rising, crashing ocean. But,
again, people are doing whatever they want
with the land, diminishing and destroying.
Many decisions have to be made and leg-
islated so that no government can negotiate
agreements that will undermine our people's
quality of life. If rules are set an investor
before he decides on a plan will know exact-
ly what is expected of him and what he can
expect in return from this country. This will
avoid tension and future misunderstanding
between Bahamians and new residents.


THE BAHAMAS is a country that
needs foreign investors to maintain the stan-
dard of living to which its people have grown
accustomed.
However, more and more Bahamians are
feeling that they are being asked to give up
too much of their birthright to attract the
investor.
Since more of the agreements made by
the previous government for the western end
of the island are coming to light, we are bemng
bombarded with telephone calls from con-
cerned Bahamians.
Many believe, especially younger Bahami-
ans, that foreigners are taking over their pub-
lic beaches while they are being herded
inland. Frustrated, they warn of an .explo-
sion.
There are frequent complaints from Har-
bour Island the jewel in the Bahamas'
crown about developments that are either
too large for the size of the quamnt little island,
or too many for an island that hasn't enough
water or electrical power to support what is
already there.
The excessive development, said one resi-
dent, is threatening the "social fabric" of the
land and reducing the Bahamian to a minor-

TThere are complaints about the over large
Bimini development that has destroyed some
of that island's wetlands, and then there is a
development at Abaco that has created prob-

launched a programme to educate Bahamians
on how to protect their coastal environment.

into the distance, only they
are not waiting for sand, but
waiting for a job. There is
nothing to do. Such is the fate
under the stop, cancel and

Mr Mitchell.
In response to FNM criti-
cisms about the negotiation
practices of the PLP on the
Cable Beach deal, Mr Mitchell
shifted focus to the FNM's
record.
"Certainly the decisions
with regard to the transfer of
the fee simple at Baha Mar
was a judicious decision taken
against the need for job cre-
ation, to stimulate the econo-
my, to revitalise the dying or
dead Cable Beach strip. In
fact, the decision of the PLP in
that regard was no more inju-
dicious or antithetical to the
pubic interest than the FNM's
decision to literally give away
the now Breezes and Sandals
properties on Cable Beach.
That netted less than what was
left outstanding on the mort-
gages on the properties, and
with the government picking
up in that case the severance
pay for the employees of those
properties," he said.

"Imagine the world looking
at this discussion this morn
ing where the lead spokesman
for the government and a min-
ister of the government is say-
ing that they have doubts
about the project. Why would
a financier want to put money
into a project that the govern
ment has doubts about. We
have to be very careful about
what kind of message we send
out," Mr Mitchell said during
his contribution on a resolu-
tion to authorise the transfer
of portions of land on Cable
Beach to the developers of the
project.
In addition to expressing
concerns abotit the comments
made by Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham, who raised
questions about the ability of
one of the developers to
finance the project yesterday,
Mr Mitchell also rejoiced that
the parliament was finally tak-
ing up an issue he deems use-
ful, namely a the resolution
which is necessary for the pro-
ject to go-ahead.
"At last this government has
put before this House some-
thing of productive value. This
resolution today will, if
approved, begin the process
of bringing additional invest-
ment to the Bahamas," Mr

The -Fox Hill MP also blast-
ed the FNM for delaying the

opposition MPs have cited the
government's decision to
review this and other projects
left in the pipeline by the
Christie government, as caus-
es for the slowing economy.
"We made a decision to

Mr Ingraham had said that the PLP agreed to
the sale of the golf course on Cable Beach
notwithstanding a stipulation in the conveyance
by the then Colonial government of the Bahamas
when the land was transferred, that it could only
be used as a golf course and nothing else, forev-
er. Despite this stipulation, the PLP government
sold the golf course to the Cable Beach develop-
ers, allowing for buildings to be constructed on the
location.
Mr Christie said that his government was aware
of this stipulation and they put it to their lawyers.
Mr Ingraham became agitated over, the opposi-
tion leader's mis-characterisation of what he had
said, and raised his voice in emphasizing that all
he said was that the PLP acted "notwithstanding"
this stipulation.
Mr Christie responded, stating, "I don't have to
snap at him."
"He seems to have a disposition where when he
opens his mouth he tries to overwhelm people by
what he is saying. But overwhelming can only

on a very reasonable position. A reasonable posi-
tion, and you cannot begin this process, Mr
Speaker, on this kind of debate, you cannot begin
this kind of debate Mr Speaker, trying to belittle,"
he said.
Mr Christie also emphasized that he wanted
Mr Ingraham to confirm that his government
also had as a condition of the deal that Baha Mar
show it had financing.
"Everything we did was predicated on the max-
imum protection of the Commonwealth of the
Bahamas," said Mr Christie.

"And so, we cannot have it both ways, Mr
Deputy. We can't have it both ways. You can't
say it is good, then it is bad," said Mr Peet.
"It's either going to be something the country
needs, which will create some 10,000 jobs when
it is completed, and it really should be encour-
aged," he said, acknowledging that the prime
minister is right in setting benchmarks for the
deal.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham challenged
Mr Peet on this claim that the project will create
10,000 jobs. He said that the accurate figure is
5,000 and not 10,000 jobs.
Mr Peet, and Opposition leader Perry Christie
both explained in response to the prime minis-
ter's intervention, that what was meant by Mr
Peet's figure is that additional jobs will be cre-
ated in the economy on top of the 5,000 direct
jobs from the development, totalling the larger
figure.

the Baha Mar, and that all these jobs could have
been created and business opportunities for
Bahamians would have been had, if we had
moved speedily. But he failed to do so while he
was in office. And failed to do so when he was
operating under great pressure," said Mr Ingra-
ham during the debate to authorise the govern-
ment to transfer land to the developers of the
Cable Beach Resorts.
Mr Ingraham revealed that the PLP govern-
ment was negotiating with Baha Mar until April
30th, which was just two days before the general
election..
The first heads of agreement between the gov-
ernment and Baha Mar was signed in April of
2005.
ut. Baha Mar sought additional concessions in
early 2007. The then government and developers
were not able to reach an agreement when the
PLP lost the government in May 2007.
"They were very busy seeking to get this deal
done to announce at a rally that the party was
holding. But they could liot arrive at an agree-
ment," said Mr Ingraham. "Notwithstanding the
pressure on him, placed on him by himself to
conclude a deal, he now berates me for taking
nine months he says to conclude a deal which he
couldn't do. He could not and did not close the
deal.
At the end of the prime minister's contribution,
Mr Christie rose in the House to'comment on
some of what Mr Ingraham said in his contribu-
tion.

They themselves did. They had the
vice president or vice chairman of

"Notwithstanding all that, I was
not satisfied that Baha Mar had
the money to do the project. And
today I am still not satisfied that
Baha Mar has the money to under-
tak~e the project. But I am satis-
fied that if Harrah's carries out
what it says it will do, that they
have the means to undertake the
project if they do what they say -
but they have no legally binding
commitment to the Bahamas. AH
of their agreements are with Baha

The Christie administration
signed the first heads of agreement
with Baha Mar in April 2005.
However, the Christie government
was unable to conclude a supple-
mental agreement with the devel-
opers up to the time they were vot-
ed out of office in May 2007. The
developers sought increased con-
cessions due to the mecrease in size
of the investment. The project had
increased in cost from $1 billion

ed between the developers Baha

Yesterday, Minister Foullkes stressed that every effort was made to

Mr Foulktes said that the public can be assured that his ministry will

An environmental assessment also will be done by the' Bahamas
Environment Science and Technology (BEST) Commission, he said.
Speaking with The Tribune last week, Eric Carey, executive director
of the Bahamas National Trust (BNT), questioned how the tanker could
have run aground as the reef around Goulding Cay has been there "for-
ever" and Shell's tankers travel that route frequently.
In a press conference on Monday, Shell International's oil fleet man-

caus ofthe ankr's roudin .
When asked whether the groundmng may have occurred because the
tanker had no local "pilot" who would have known the waters in the

Minister Foulkes.

The prime minister said that
Baha Mar, which did not honour
its first deal signed with the gov-
ernment, appears to be constantly
moving the goal post when it
comes to the proposed develop-
ment. Though he also emphasized
that he hopes the deal is successful.
Baha Mar was required in the
first agreement it signed to invest
$400 million; provide the govern-
ment with evidence of the $1 bil-
lion in financing; to obtain a com-
mitment from a world class casino
operator to participate in the pro-
ject; and to deliver to the govern-
ment detailed plans on the pro-
jects and the starting dates by
October 2006. All of these condi-
tions were not lived up to, said Mr
Ingraham, but instead, the devel-
opers came to the government in
early 2007 to renegotiate the new
deal based on the increased invest.
ment.
"The land will only be trans-
ferred if and when Baha Mar hoa-
ours the deal. And if the deal is

Minister warns students of threat to Bahamas' ecosystem


SBy Llonella Gilbert
Minister of Lands and Local
Government Sidney Collie
explained to students of the
CC Sweeting Senior High
School that the most danger-


ous threat to the country's
fragile ecosystem is damage
to its wetlands, hills and coast.
Mr Collie encouraged the
students to be mindful of the
importance of swamps, wet-
lands, the hills and the
seashore.
"Without those aspects of
the environment," he said,
"our country will be devastat-
ed by hurricanes and other
weather related conditions."
Mr Collie spoke at a special
assembly at the senior high
school yesterday, held under
the theme "National Envi-
ronment Day".
He was visiting the school
as part of' the ministry's sec-
iondntannual Awareness
The minister, senior officials
from the ministry and repre-
sentatives of various depart-
ments were welcomed to the
school by principal Delores
Ingraham and other staff,
tea hrs andsts ens.ase
bly, Mr Collie had another


serious and strong message for
the students.
He told them that as a for-
mer teacher of CC Sweeting,
he is disturbed by the nega-
tive news reports of that
school's students being
involved in fights and con-
frontations, noting that good
citizenship means getting a
good education and having
manners and respect.
Mr iCollie said, "You live in
a generation where you beat
your chest; you use harsh
words; you see what is dis-
played on the television and
the video tapes and you
believe that is what is going
to get you across the threshold
int good citi enshi .yo ht
you are wrong. That attitude is
gomng to get you in prison; it is
going to get you a criminal
record; it is going to stop you
from getting a career or a
trade.
all is going tto g yu in jail.
It is as bad as that."

'A couple' of francluse

deals result from Expo
HBy NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
US EMBASSY officials yesterday said they "'expect a couple" of
franchise agreements to be signed, between American companies and
Bahamian entrepreneurs as a result of the recent Franchise Expo.
Anne-Marie Bain, an economic/commercial assistant with the US
Embassy in Nassaxi, told The Tribune that while no franchise agree-
ments between any US exhibitors and Bahamian companies had been
concluded yet, "we are expecting a couple".
She added: "These things take a while, so we can't disclose the par-
ties involved until the actual contract is signed. We are expecting,
and have a couple, on the drawing board."
Ms Bain said the second day of the Expo was booked solid for onle-
on-one appointments between US franchise exhibitors and potential
Bahamian franchisees.
"I was a' bit surprised. It went very ell and we had a number of
good prospects," Ms Bain said. "It appears all the franchisees report-
ed having interest from Bahamian individuals and companies.
"When I called and spoke to ~the exhibitors onl Wednesday, one of the
.companies said they had two companies apply for the same franchise.

SLegal
Ease



lish Common Law, a parent 'com-
pany, while the owner of whole
or part of the share capital of a
subsidiary, is not regarded as the
owner of the assets of the sub-
sidiary, in the absence of an
express agency or trust relation-
ship.
It should also be emphasised
that the parent company and
other companies in the group of
companies are not liable for the
debts or liabilities incurred by
the relevant subsidiary compa-
ny (unless they have guaranteed
such debts).
As a corollary to this legal
principle, Bahamian law does not
impose on the directors of a par-
ent company a duty to protect
the interests of its subsidiaries
when the subsidiaries have inde-
pendent boards of directors.
These company law principles
have been founded on the con-
cept of separate legal personahi-
ty, which was established by the
English House of Lords, in the
case of Salomon v. A Salomon&
Co. Ltd. [1897] AC 22, HL.
In most cases involving parent
companies and their subsidiaries,
the Salomon principle has been
applied by the courts, particu-
larly mn instances where there is
no unity of interest and owner-
ship, and in instances where the
concept of separate legal per-
sonality is not being used to
defeat public convenience, jus-
tify wrongdoing, protect fraud,
or defend crime.
In circumstances where the
use or application of the concept
of separate legal personality
would (or does) create an injus-
tice or facilitates an improper
purpose such as a fraud or a
crime the court will "pierce the
corporate veil of the company"
.to determine the appropriate
decision/action to be taken,
based upon the facts.

in the Bahamas, and carrying on
business in the Bahamas under a
'business name which does not
/ consist of the corporate name
without any addition, shall be
.registered in the manner directed
by this Act".
An application form for the
registration of a corporation
must be completed for the com-
pany that will us'e the name and
style of business name other than
its corporate name.
The registration fee for the fil-
ing of a statement of particulars
.is $50 annually, and the registra-
tion fee for the filing of addi-
tional particulars is $5. Once the
relevant forms have been com-
pleted and the filing fees paid to
the Registrar General, a Certifi-
cate of Registration will be
issued by the Registrar as docu-
mentary evidence of registration
of the company's business name.
Section 12(2) of the Act
L requires that the certificate or a
certified copy of the certificate
be exhibited mna conspicuous
3 position in the principal place of
business for the corporation,
Failure to comply with this pro-
vision will result in liability on
summary conviction to a fine of
$1,000. The particulars under the
Act must be submitted within 14
days after the date of change of
the name, as stipulated in Sec-
tion 7 of the Act.

Legal responsibility of

El company for registration
A subsidiary having a place or
carrying on business in the
Bahamas, on behalf of parent
;' company situated elsewhere in
the world, would be responsible
for the registration of the busi-
ness names of any of its compa-
m ~nes that are orgamised and exist-
m` ig under the laws of the Com-
monwealth of the Bahamas, and
Share under its administration and
maintenance.

SThe SalomonfrPrinciple
Under' Blaiaamian company
2 law, which is premised on Eng-


ance). is that of the subsidiary
company having a place, carrying
on b tnes. andenbt B gnasd
With regard to business car-
ried out by Bahamian sub-
sidiaries and their adherence to
any and all laws in the Bahamas,
particularly the registration of
business nanme in this instance,
it should be noted that any lia-
bility incurred by such compa-
nies, which may result from the
illegal conduct of their business
or their lack of compliance with
the laws in this jurisdiction.
would be limited to the Bahami-
an subsidiary.
Such liability would not, in any
way, be the legal responsibility of
the parent company, provided
there are no exceptional circum-
stances where the concept of sep-
arate legal personality would not
be applicable by a court-of law in
this jurisdiction
This is an important concept to
reiterate to Bahamian sub-
sidialries, who may operate under
the assumption and misconcepj-
tion that they are protected from
legal liability in this jurisdiction
by the relationship to their for-
eign parent companies who are
governed by other laws.
As a result, they mistakenly
feel they are not required to ful-
ly adhere to the relevant
Bahamian laws that may be
applicable to their bu:siness, par-
ticularly the requirement for
proper registration of any and
all business names that may be
used mn the conduct of their busi-
ness in the: Bahamas.

THE TRIBUNE


St Georges


over his claim to 75 per cent
ownership, provided that the late
Edward St George's estate
agrees to sell its shares to Flem-
ing,
Mr Mackay said in his letter:
"Our client would, however,
press the companies of which he
is a director to compromise [the
ownership action] (and all
appeals therefrom) if your clients
agree to sell their shareholding to
Fleming Family & Partners.
"Our client, as director, feels
that this is the best option for
the companies and Freeport
going forward; investment, and
not the paying out of dividends,
is what Freeport needs at this
time."
Alleging that this proved the
St George estate's contention
about Fleming's involvement, M~r
Smith alleged: "Were the sale of
the Hayward shares to the Flem-
ing Group to be permitted, the
oppression of which the plain-
tiffs complain would simply con-
tinue and intensify.
"In circumstances where the
plaintiffs have indicated a will-
ingness to co-operate in equal
participation in the companies,
and where this offer has been
thrown back in the plaintiffs'
faces, the court should ensure
that the plaintiffs are not preju-


diced in their attempts to remedy
the oppression by permitting a
sale to the persons who (the
plaintiffs allege) are directing the
oppression.
"In light of the Hayward letter
it is submitted that at the very
least, before permitting the sale
of the shares, the court should
allow the plaintiffs properly to
investigate the precise role of the
Fleming Group amongst the
Hayward defendants, and should
hear the plaintiffs' application
for specific discovery of the
material setting out that role
before the injunction is dis-
charged."
Mr Smith alleged that neither
Fleming nor the Hayward family
trusts would be prejudiced by
such a development, as the for-
mer's purchase of the 50 per cent
stake would need government
approval something that was
"likely to take some time".
"Until such approval is
obtained the transaction cannot
be executed. There would, in
these circumstances, be no prej-
udice to continuing the injunc-
tion for such period until gov-
ernment approval is obtained, at
which point the question of
whether or not the injunction
should be further continued can
be re-visited," Mr Smith argued.


MBy NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE late Edward St George's
estate remains opposed to Flem-
ing & Family Partners acquiring
the other 50 per cent interest in
the Grand Bahama Port Author-
ity (GBPA) owned by the Hay-
ward family trusts until all liti-
gation is resolved, the estate's
attorney told The Tribune yes-
terday.
Fred Smith, a partner in the
Callender's & Co law firm, in his
initial submissions to the
Supreme Court for a reinstate-
ment of the injunction prevent-
ing Seashells Investments, the
company controlled by the Hay-
ward family trust's trustees, from
selling its 50 per cent stake,
argued that Fleming was fund-
ing the trust's legal battle against
his client and. "directing it
through powers of attorney".
He argued that before allow-
ing the Hayward trust's trustees
to sell the 50 per cent GBPA
stake they controlled, the
Supreme Court should at least
allow the St George estate to
"investigate the precise role of
the Fleming Group amongst the
Hayward defendants".
Prior to going into court, Mr
Smith alleged that Fleming's sup-
posed 'behind-the-scenes' role
in the litigation was intended to
squeeze the St George estate and
"force us to sell our shares to
"As far as we are concerned,
the acquisition [of the Hayward
shares] by Fleming and the way it
is being done is further oppres-
sion of the estate, and is why we
are asking the court to stop it,"
Mr Smith told The Tribune.
In his submissions supporting
the estate's contention that the
injunction blocking the Hayward
share sale be reinstated, Mr
Smith seized on a a February 21,
2008, letter from Charles Mack-
ay, Sir Jack Hayward's attorney,
which was a reply to the St
George estate's 'open offer' to
the Hayward family trusts, their
trustees and all the defendants
tosetble tthredeeeplyedaag ng

ty that Mr Izmirlian and his son,
Sarkis, had committed to invest-
ing mn hew Cbl hBeac gn deve

project's original Heads of Agree-
ment with the former government
in April 2005.
When contacted by The Tri-
bune about the Prime Minister's
comments, Robert Sands, Baha
Mar's senior vice-president for
administrative and public affairs,
said they were still studying the
remarks.
He added: "Financing is not an
issue for us." Mr Sands said Baha
Mar would give a more detailed
response after analysing the
Prime Minister's comments, but
none was forthcoming before
press time last night.
Meanwhile, Mr Ingraham said
the Christie government had been
concerned about Baha Mar's abil-
ity to finance its project, tabling a
k srary r2a, 27 yle tr sen t
Bethel, chairman of the Govern-
ment's negotiating committee for
the project.
The letter noted that on Feb-
ruary 8, 2007, the Government
had notified Baha Mar that the
conditions precedent or under-
takings it had said it would per-
form by October 6, 2006, had not
been met.
These conditions included pro-
viding evidence that $400 million
had been contributed from Baha
Mar's own resources; that financ-
ing for what was then a $1 billion
proeot wao'! id pace;h eomntd
casino operators were in place;
and detailed plans and specifica-
tions were delivered to the Gov-
ernment, along with a project

stBahatelar disputed the Gov-
ernment's view that it had not
met these undertakings in a letter
issued the same day, and the
developer and government nego-
tiators met on;February 13, 14,
15 and 19 in a bid to resolve the
issues and work on the supple-
mental Heads of Agreement.
Mr Ingraham yesterday sug-
gested that Baha Mar "continues
to move the goal posts" for the
Cable Beach project, and ques-
tioned why his predecessor had
entered talks on a new deal with

med h em ow nh intialh He
of Agreement.
"After Baha Mar had failed to
honour the deal, it came back and
said it wanted additional casino
tax concessions to the tune of an
additional $82;million. Addition-
ally, it asked for special casino


tax concessions over a three-year
period amounting to $32.9 mil-
lion," the Prime Minister said.
"It asked the Government to
spend in an additional eight years
of cooperative marketing, $96
million to the Bahamian taxpay-
ers. It also asked for an increase
in the re-launch of the coopera-
tive marketing from $20 million
to $40 million.
"Baha Mar wanted the Gov-
ernment's commitment for infra-
structure for building the new
road to increase from $45 million
to $50 million (another $4.7 mil-
lion) and another $20 million for
a Sky Tunnel at Skyline Drive.
"In total, Baha Mar came back

$5d5.6 mIl in cahin odetr fo
them to carry out its $2.6 billion
project."
He added that Parliament
would only authorise the Gov-
ernment to transfer the Treasury
land, which meludes the Cable
Beach Police and Fire Station,
the Cecil Wallace Whitfield Cen-
tre, a portion of West Bay Street,
and a portion of the Cable Beach
median.
The resolution did not mean
the Governmen't would transfer
the land, the Prime Minister said,
as this would depend on whether


Baha Mar fulfilled all its under-
takings by March 2009. If it did
not, there would be "no deal".
"We expect that the bench-
marks which have been agreed
will be honoured. The first bench-
mark is March 18. That is not
going to be met and I would
doubt that the benchmark for
next month is going to be met,"
Mr Ingraham said.
"But I am not unduly con-
cerned about the individual
monthly benchmarks. I am con-
cerned about the cumulative total
- March 2009. When we arrive at
that point it is either a deal or it is
not a deal."
The Prime Minister added that
behta ealm st kilee theendeald
Baha Mar was the developer's
insistence that the initial Heads of
Agreement meant the Govern-
ment had to spend $69 million in
taxpayer monies to pay for infra-
structure works at Cable Beach,
such as the new West Bay
Street.
Eventually, a compromise was
reached where the supplemental
Heads of Agreement stated that
the Government would only pay
for infrastructure once one of
Baha Mar's 1,000 room hotels
was 100 feet off the ground.

Our Lucaya resort, turned in a
relatively flat revenue perfor-
mance for its fiscal 2008 third
quarter, with net revenues
slightly ahead at $4.081 million
compared to $4.058 million the
year before.
For the first nine months of a
year that closed at end-April
2008, The Isle-Lucaya casino's
net revenues are down on the


previous year's figures, indicat-
ing that the improved financial
performance may have come
from cost and expense contain-
ment.
Total revenues for the first
three quarters of the current fis-
cal year were down some 6.8
per cent on the performance for
the year to end-April 2007,
standing at $10.79 million com-
pared to $11.579 million.
On the net operating income
side, Isle-Lucaya generated a


$169,000 loss for the quarter to
January 27, 2008.
For the first nine months of
'the current financial year, the
net operating loss produced by
the Grand Bahama-based casi-
no was less than one third of
the prior year's red ink.
The $1.125 million loss
incurred for the first nine
months to January 27, 2008,
paled into insignificance along-
side the $4.147 million loss suf-
fered the previous year.

on that."
Alemany and Connolly face
many challenges at Citizens,
such as how to keep pace with
Bank of America, which it
trails in deposits in Massachu-
setts and Connecticut. (Citizens
has more deposits in smaller
states where they compete,
such as Rhode Island and New
Hampshire.)

Brandmg

They also face branding
questions such as how to treat
the name Charter One still
used on a group of Midwestern
banks Citizens acquired in
2004, and whether to make
more references to the Royal's
name or RBS initials when
marketing Citizens an issue
that remains under study, the
executives said. (The Royal
bought Citizens in 1988.)
Citizens is coming off of a
mixed year, though it stands in
good shape relative to other .
banks that have written off bil-
lions tied to bad housing loans.
Results for 2007 released last
week showed Citizens with an
operating profit of $2.6 billion,
down from $2.9 billion in 2006.
While total income from inter-
est and fees rose, the bank
increased its provisions for bad
loans past and future to $682
million from $333 million in
2006.
The numbers would have
been worse but for cost-cutting
efforts including the elimina-
tion of jobs last year that left its
total workforce at 24,500 at the


~ent post just last year, said

former FleetBoston Financial
Corp. into a powerhouse
before selling it to Bank of
America in 2004.
"They were visible and
strong leaders, but then new

As for Fish, he said in a tele-

he now spends about two days

matters, and the rest of his time
on various community projects,.

I've ever been, but it includes a
lot of other things," he said.

question before the tense Bridge-O-
Rama audience that was witnessing
the replay of the hand was whether
the Australian North-South pair,
Roelof Smilde and Tim Seres, would
bid six or seven. .
The first 12 hands mn the 20-board
match had resulted in a dead tie, each
team having scored 12 Intemnational
Match Points. Board No. 13 seemed
destined to produce a breakthrough
for the Australians.
Smilde and Seres did not disap-
point their followers. They got to
seven spades after a complex auction
that included a forcing opening club
bid by North, a positive response, an
asking bid (four hearts) and a series
of Blackwood bids inquiring about
aces, kings and queens:
North East South West
1 + Pass 1 NT Pass
2 + Pass 2 + Pass
4 V Pass 4 4 Pass
4 NT Pass 5 V Pass
5 NT Pass 6 + Pass
6 4 Pass 6 NT Pass
7 4
Seres had no trouble making the
grand slam, and Australia gained
1,500 points to pull ahead mn the
match, 29 IMPs to 12. The Aussies
then went on to beat their more
famous opponents 49 to 26, and
eventually finished fifth overall. The
Italians, as usual mn those days, fn-
ished first.

II By WILLIAM PACK
c.2008 San Antonio
Express-News
SAN ANTONIO -- San Anto-
nio has matured gradually as a
regional golf hotspot, officials
said, but still has a ways to go to
generate the buzz of nationally
known destinations such as
Phoenix-Scottsdale or Myrtle
Beach, S.C.
"You're up against some stiff
competition for the travel dollar
from golfers in the Midwest," said
Brandon Tucker, a writer for
w~orldgolf.com. "They'll go to
Florida or Arizona or Las Vegas
first."
The number of area courses
has climbed and the quality of
those facilities has improved, but
the area lacks that special feature
that gives it national credibility
and marketing punch. Officials
hope to fill that gap with a Tour-
nament Players Club facility fea-
turing two, 18-hole, championship
level courses that is being con-
structed as part of a JW Marriott
resort here.
Jack Parker, who helped build
the Quarry Golf Club and cur-
rently is part owner of Tapatio
Springs Resort and Conference
Center near Boerne, Texas, said
San Antonio is known "as a fun
destination, not a golf destina-
tion." .
The interest surrounding the
players club, or TPC, develop-
ment a PGA Tour project that
strives to build courses challeng-
ing enough for touring pros --
could change that, Parker said.
He believes it could put golf in
line with the Alamo, the River
Walk and theme parks as a
regional tourism driver.
"The golfing world will know
there is golf in San Antonio."
Parker said.

"That will help all the golf
courses in San Antonio."
They probably would accept
any help offered.
The local golfing environment
is not as troubled as areas where
developers constructed too many
golf courses for the community
to support, but it is not immue to
the challenges the industry faces
nationally. The number of rounds
played has hit a plateau in recent
years, and the number of golfers
may be declining.
The New York Times reported
last month that the number of
people who play had fallen by
about four million slice 2000 to
26 million.
"There's.not a lot of new
golfers now,"' said Marvin Jones,
general manager of the San Anto-
nio Country Club, which experi-
enced a 20 per cent jump in
rounds about three years ago but
has held steady since then.
Golfing interests say they are
working hard to build interest in a
sport that is challenged by the
hectic pace of modern culture so
revenues can continue to expand.
"We're focusing on: ways to
make it appealing to people and
to keep it relevant," said Ruffin
Beckwith, executive director of
Golf 20/20, a Florida cc611abora-
tion of golfing interests that ana-
lyzes and promotes the sport.
"We used to sit back and let peo-
ple come to us. Now, people are
working harder to maiket the
game and to get it before more
people."
With more than 30 courses just
in San A~ntonio and adjacent
communities and dozens more
outside of metropolitan afea, the
sector produces millions in rev-
enue each year, more likely hun-
dreds of millions. There is no eco-
nomic impact study to donfirm
that. .


But to prosper, it, too, will have
to reach out to new and younger
players, create more challenging
courses such as the new TP('
facility and market what it has til
more effective ways, officials said.
"There is potential here," said
Reid Meyers, chairman of the
Municipal Golf Association-San
-Antonio, a nonprofit organiza-
tion that eventually will manage
the city-owned golf facilitleq
"City leaders are looking at the
issue.
They know what a critical cord-
ponent of the tourism sector ft
is."
Nationally, the direct cn
ic impact of golf reached am
$76 billion in 2005, according to
study that Golf 20/20 released
January. That total is upfr
about $62.2 billion in 2000, m
ing it had grown annually,t
organization calculated, at a4
per ceqt rate.
The biggest chunk of the r$
enue $28.1 billion cm
from the operations of the 16,9
golf courses and nearly 3,30(
practice ranges and miniature g
courses in the country. Theote
big contributors were the hst
tality and tourism dollars attri-
utable to golf $18 billion--
and the cost of homes in gol
communities, which includes i
premium for the added value d
being on a golf course tta
ing nearly $15 billion.
When a multiplier is applied rp
the total to estimate how the golf-
ing dollars rebound through (H'e
economy, golf's total economiit
impact for 2005 was estimated at
$195.1 billion,.which includes
$61.2 billion in wages.
"It's a bigger industry than ped
ple expected," Beck with saiy
"It's bigger than the morion plo-
ture and video industry. It's bi
ger in facility revenue than
other professional sport. Whe
it's put mn perspective, golf Is all
important economic driver."
Texas generally is consider
one of the big three golf sa
with California and Florida,b
because of the number of course
it has and the number of golf.
Rob Addington, executive diryr
tor of the ?Texas Golf.Associa-
tion, sd about 9000 tni or 18-
landscape. The number of cours-
es being built about equals the
number that closes each year, the
diret rs ecnomic clout in the
state currently is being evaluat-
ed by Golf 20/20. For compati-
son, a study of golf's impact min
Arizona concluded that its 338~
facilities generated $3.4 billion iD
value in 2004. In South Carolina,
the impact total reached $2.3 bil-
lion for its 375 courses.
Mike Ray, PGA of America's
executive director in Southere
Texas, said Texas has severral top-
rank facilities but often fails to
"get our due on the national
scene."
San Antonio is one of the top
golfing destinations in the state,
Ray said, because of its courses
and the number of Big 12 football
championships, NCAA basket-
ball tournaments and other spe-
cial events it attracts. Those
events usually create more golf
rounds.


Esso, a market leader in the fuels and convenience retailing, is looking
for operators/franch;isees for its On The Run Cafes, Tiger Markets, and
service stations across New Providence.

MR. JOSEPH NATHANIEL BLYDEN JR.
(1924 2006)
On two years ago this date,, the curtains came falling down, the
last pain resided in your shell, the limp in your walk exchanged
for a glide mimicking David's dance, spirit was called by Spirit'
dust suffered unto dust, and you substituted earth for eternity.
Your greatest epitaph was not that you were a World War II
veterari, the banquet Manager at the British Colonial Hotel, a
teacher at your beloved C.C. Sweeting School, or #568 Taxi Cab
Driver offering a wealth of knowledge to many a tourist; because
all of those yvere empty feats when put next to your serving God
and humanity, and your serving as the 1st President of Bethel
Baptist Church Senior Saints Minisrty. You finished strong and we
love you.
From your children, JoeAnn Charlene Neely, Philip Nathanel
Blyden, Tyrone Joseph Blyden and Juhian Thomas Blyden; and
step-son- Nathemiel Maurice "Sleepy Lightbourne; brother;
Percy Blyden, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many other
family members and friends. We remember you with great
admiration and with heartfelt thanks. Sleep on Daddy!

"The Lord is my Light and my Salvation;
Whom shall I fear?

Of whom shall I be afraid?"

'When the wine runs out'


one another's issues. Because of this
inability to handle each other's 'bag-
gage', they become frustrated and
resentment starts to grow.

3. Inability to communicate
effectively

Some couples may share a bed, eat
at the same table, watch TV togeth-
er, raise children together, etc, and
still one may feel alone. They may
talk, but not connect, live together
and not share life. After some time
of marriage some couples find it
much easier to communicate hurtful
words rather than communicating
healing ones.

4. Criticism exceeds compliments
It becomes much easier after a
while for couples to criticize each
other rather than compliment. The
same person that you once paid so
many flowery compliments to, all of
a sudden you run out of good things
to say and all you can do is criticize
each other. Couples paralyze each
other with pain when they become
overly critical. Criticism from a
spouse hurts more than being criti-
cized by any other person.

5. Attitude of un-forgiveness

As individuals, we all seek mercy
and forgiveness from God for our
sins, yet we find it so hard to forgive
each other. Many couples remember
each other's mistakes of the past and
constantly bring them up. This atti-
tude of un-forgiveness, leads to
major problems in most marriages.
6. Listening to the wrong voices

Many couples listen to the wrong
voices when going through marital
problems. They take their problems
to family and friends who often give
them bad advice, rather than praying


WBy PASTOR WILBUR OUTTEN
Senior Pastor,
Freeport Bible Church
IN the familiar text of John 2:1-11,
Jesus performs his first miracle while
amending a wedding at Cana in
At the wedding, the wmne ran out
and Jesus' mother approached him
mnforming him of the situation. Prior
to this time Jesus had not performed
any miracles, however, his mother
knew that he was the one to turn to
during this time of crisis.
In the scripture, we see Jesus
responding to his mother by asking,
"Dear woman, why do you involve
me? My time has not yet come."
(John 2:4 NIV) His mother contin-
ued by ordering the servants to do
whatever Jesus told them to. Jesus
then asked the servants to fill six
stone water jars that were near by
with water. He ordered them to draw
some of the water and take it to the
master of the banquet.
Jesus had performed his first mira-
cle by turning the water into wine.
Upon tasting the wine, not know-
ing where it came from, the master
of the banquet said to the bride-
groom "Everyone brings out the
choice wine first and then the cheap-
er wine after the guests have had tio
much to drink; but you have saved
the best till now." (John 2:10 NIV).
Using the word wine figuratively
speaking and not as literal wine as
used in the text, Pastor Outten- posed
the questions, "what do you do when
the 'wine' in your relationship runs
out?" and "Who do you turn to
when the 'wine' runs out; when you
are confronted with relationship
problems?"
Noting that there are many rea-
sons why the 'wine' may run out in a
relationship, Pastor Outten identified
six potential problems:
1. Infatuation ends

During the dating period love was
never really cultivated. Most people
are in a state of infatuation; they are
'foolishly' in love. This quickly
becomes a short-lived passion. After
marriage, once the routine of life sets
in, the excitement and infatuation
ends.

2. Inability to handle baggage

During the courtship both parties
paint perfect pictures of themselves.
They then enter the marriage with
'baggage'; problems that were never
revealed during their courtship, and ,
find it hard adjusting and coping with


and seeking council through Jesus
Christ.

The above is a brief summary of
part one of the message "When the
wine runs out". Please see part two
of this message which gives six prin-
ciples that must be followed in order
to keep the 'wine' in your relation-
ship. in next week's religious section.

MOST Bahamians are familiar
with the political slogan, "Look at
the people", and this was exactly the
reaction of Father Chester Burton,
priest in charge of the Anglican
Churches in Cat Island, when he saw
the throngs of people turned out to
participate in St Saviour's First
Amriual Mothering Sunday March
and Jesus in the Park celebration,
held last Sunday.
The day's activities were made all
the more successful as congregations
from a number of denominations
from throughout Cat Island joined in
the grand celebration.
The crowd heard from dynamic
local speakers such as Rev Donnie
Newbold, Pastor of Mount Zion
Baptist, Port Howe; Rev Vernice
Storr, Pastor of Mount Sinai, New
Bight; Mrs Shantell Culmer, chief
social worker for the island and


Inspector Philip Rolle, officer in
charge of the Cat Island district.
The march left Zion Hill's gas sta-
tion depot promptly at 3pm en route
to the basketball court in Arthur's
Town. The crowd marched to the
melodious music of the Cat Island
Marching Band, under the director-
ship of Mrs Myoshie Curtis. Also in
attendance were members of the
newly formed Police Cadet
Programme, some 50 strong young-
sters under the watchful eye of
Inspector Rolle.
Despite overcast skies, Cat
Islanders from all walks of life came
out in droves see for themselves the
talented young people of Cat Island.
The youngster heard the charge of
the various speakers and left with the
goal of making Cat Island a better
place to live because of them being a
Christian witness.

' aring for the flock


By DR ALBERT S
FERGUSON JP

THE mandate of caring for
the flock (or the members of
the body of Christ) has not
changed (see St John 10:11,
Matthew 18:14, St John
21:15-16) but the philosophy
and practice of caring for the
flock in today's Bahamas
appears to be an evolving
one, based upon the experi
ences of many of the mem-
bers.
Where there was a pastor
leading the church, who
understood that being an
"under-shepherd" simply
meant emulating the "Good
Shepherd", roles and respon-
sibilities were clear and the
expectations of the flock
were straightforward.
Now, with the ever-evolv-
ing hierarchy structure of the
pastor's job positioned into
the entity called "senior"
pastor, and beyond, and with
the attendant and on-going
shift in focus of the latter
position toward day-to-day
management duties, financial
administration and communi-
ty public affairs, the church's
key responsibility of caring
for the flock has, in such
cases, been adversely affect-
ed.
The reality is that some
"senior" pastors now view
caring for members as the
job of the associate or assis-
tant pastor or minister. They
no longer have time for that!
They are 'beyond that!' so to
speak.
The priority, available time


the follow-up calls and visits
after the tragedy after the
dead body is in the ground,
after the person is released
from hospital or telephone
calls and visits to follow up
on situations you know exist
or are on-going, like the lady
who is dealing with the dis-
covery of a cancerous lump,
the family dealing with a
pregnant 16-year-old or the
family whose 20-year-old son
has just experienced his first
Christmas in prison.
Without a definite and
well-structured system in
place to care for members,
people begin to feel isolated
and disconnected; they feel
that no one cares about their
personal and family situa-
tions, other than paying lip
service to them. Lots of peo-
ple from larger churches
leave, and join small, emerg-
ing memberships because
there, they can feel signifi-
cant, important, cared for
and connected, which, in lots
of cases, lasts only for a
while.
Consider this scripture
found in two gospels,
Matthew 18 and Luke 15:
How think ye? If a man
have an hundred sheep and
one of them be gone astray,
doth he not leave the ninety
and nine and goeth into the
mountain, and seeketh that
which is gone astray?
And if so be that he find it,
verily I say unto you, he
reforce more of that sheep
than of the ninety and nine
which went not astray. .
Even so it is not the will of
your Father which is in heav-
en, that one of these little ones
should perish.

Let's just suppose... What
might go through a "senior"
pastor's mind today when he
or she receives the news that
one sheep only one is
missing and cannot be
accounted for? I worry very
deeply about the responses
within the heart and mind.
Let me suggest some:
*Is this sheep a financial


member?
*Does that sheep pay
tithes?
*Is his or her name on the
book for those who support-
ed the 'financial drive', build-
ing fund programme or the
recent financial programme
the church had (by whatever
name it was called)?
*Does that sheep support
the so-named 'vision-of-the-
house'? (I've heard people
say from pulpits 'if you
don't support the vision of
this church, well (they use
certain phrases which, when
interpreted, mean, get lost!).
*Is this sheep a 'loyal'
member?
*Is this one of the sheep
from the "senior" pastor's
"yes! yes! community" (or
their family) or from the
"senior" pastor's 'inner cir-
cle' or one on whose constant
affirmation the "senior" pas-
tor depends for his/her self-
esteem maintenance?
*Is this sheep "faithful?"
("Faithful" is a word often
used over dead sheep in
home-going services).

No one is suggesting that
words will be spoken! This
may all be mental purely
thoughts but we are encour-
aged by the scriptures to
judge people by their fruits,
or when thoughts become
behaviours!
Here is how I see the crux
of the matter. When caring
for the flock is the first prior-
ity, all of the other goals,
plans, programmes and
dreams of the ministry will
automatically fall into place
and conie to fruition.

and interest in the caring
function has been downgrad-
ed and de-emphasized in so
many instances, and func-
tions like regular visitation of
the sick and shut-ins, regular
visitation of seniors and the
elderly members, visiting
those in prison or those who
are far from the church and
its geographical area, caring
for the widows, orphans, lit-
tle children and for the
"strangers within our gates"
all become tasks that are del-


egated or passed on to other
ministerial staff (whether
paid or volunteers).
This is how people could
have a hospital stay and
never see their pastor or
bereavement and never see
their pastor or have problems
in their home but would
never dream of calling their
busy "senior" pastor who, in
their eyes, does not have a
caring spirit, beyond their
rhetoric.
Caring goes beyond seeing
people in church and greet-
ing them in regular fellow-
ship. Caring goes beyond
responding to a member's
distress call in connection
with sickness, tragedy or
death. Caring is about show-
ing interest in a member and
his or her family situations
on an ongoing basis.
Caring is about telephone
ing or visiting when there is
no reason to do so, but mere-
ly to check on a member's
well-being. Caring is about

THE EVENING QUIET of the downtown International Bazaar will reverberate with the sounds of cracking whips and the wailing of
women as the reenactment of Christ's journey to Calvary makes its way from Tori Gates to the Lucayan Circle on East Sunrise
Highway


during which the rosary will be recit-
ed and hymns sung as pilgrims make
their way in a candlelight procession.
According to research, the object
of the stations is to help the faithful
make a spiritual pilgrimage of prayer
to the chief scenes of Christ's suffer-


ings and death, and it is hoped that
this event offers the perfect opportu-
nity to join in prayer for the safe-
keeping of this country and its peo-
ple in these often troubled times.
The stations of the cross will end
at the Lucayan Circle (East Sunrise


Highway) .
All are invited to attend, and as it
is in the streets of Grand Bahama, it
is of course free of charge.
Spectators are encouraged to fol-
low the entire procession from begin-
ning to end.

The evening quiet of the downtown
International Eazaar will reverberate
with the sounds of cracking whips
and the wailing of women on Friday,
March 7 at 5:30pm, as the reenact-
ment of Christ's journey to Calvary
makes its way from the Tori Gates to
the Lucayan Circle on East Sunrise
Highway, in a reenactment of the sta-
tions of the cross.
Anne Shahid, director of this
drama and a visiting past resident of
Grand Bahama, said because we live
in such a secular world, she felt it
was important that this drama be
repeated.
She added that there was a need to
sensitize people to the suffering that
Christ endured for us as he bore his
cross on that bleak Friday two thou-
sand years ago.
"Seeing is believing" were her
words as she shared the passion she
felt in this production. There is a
need to concretize the message and
what better way to do this if not by
an enactment.
Shahid has directed four such
reenactments in Trinidad, her home
country, where she now resides. And
after this Bahamas performance, she
will return home to put on a fifth
performance. Inspired by Shahid's
production, it will also be presented
for the first time in Washington, DC
this March.
Local actors and other members of
the community, all volunteers, have
come together within a week's time
to put this memorable event togeth-
er. Along with local assistance,
Shahid is bringing in professional

an insidious type of bondage because
it keeps an effort from being made.
Defeat is accepted and entrenched
before any new battle is even contem-
plated.
The Samaritan woman coming to
draw water at the well at midday
(John 5-42) is an excellent biblical
illustration of a person who knows
herself as a social reject.
The encounter with Jesus Christ
reveals her false perception of how he
will react to her. He sees her more as
a person in need of salvation who is
capable of effective evangelism and
ministry than as loser from an
despised race, inferior gender, who is
morally destitute.

istry called "Taking -

Celebrations will begin
with a service on Friday,
March 7 at 7:30pm. The
speaker for.the evening will
be Rev Tamecko Collie.
Rev Collie received Jesus
Christ as Lord and Saviour
in 1989. In 1991 he attended
Evangelistic Centre
Assemblies of God where he
was wonderfully filled with
the Holy Ghost. It was there
that Rev Collie got a deeper
desire and hunger for God
and to grow more in rela-
tionship with Christ.
Enthusiastic about service
to his Lord, he become more
involved in many areas of
ministry at Evangelistic
Centre. He served as an
usher and later as a member
of Christ Ambassadors
(CAs), the church's youth
department. While working
in the CA's he was elected


treasurer. He later served as
:CA's president and director.
Minister Collie organised
park outreaches and mission
trips for young people of
Evangelistic Centre. The
youth ministry grew and the
Lord added such as should
be saved.
Rev Collie currently serves
as senior pastor of Bethany
Assembly, a position he has
had the wonderful privilege
of serving in for the past
three years. Rev and Mrs
Collie are the proud patients
of two sons, Antonio and
Joel.

SBy REVEREND ANGELA
BOSFIELD PALACIOUS

THERE are at least three general
types of barriers: externally imposed
ones, self-imposed ones and combina-
tions of the two. Those erected for us
by others include those of race`, gen-
der, age, nationality and class which
are facts of our birth that are beyond
our control, while barriers related to
politics and religion concern aspects
of ourselves which may be altered by
choice at any time.
The other type of barrier is the one
we accept and maintain in our own
minds that keep us restricted. For
example, the lack of discipline and
parental support to apply themselves
to their education leaves many stu-
dents under-qualified, underem-
ployed and often angry at the "injus-
tices" of life.
Similarly, not altering personal
appearance to meet job requirements
will only result in dismissal even
though issues of identity are imnpor-


habiting with a sixth man (without
scathing condemnation) give her new
dignity, integrity and self-love as
based on God's love for her.
She takes this message of forgive-
ness, healing and hope to her people
and they exhibit an overwhelming
conversion response.
A modern day illustration of per-
sons who have converted their actual
or potential barriers of race, gender
and age into bridges to reach millions
of Americans are Senators Obama,
Clinton and McCain. One of the three
seems poised to become the leader of
the world's most powerful country at
this time. It is truly a modern miracle
to see and hear what is currently tak-
ing place. All have suffered and sur-
vived various personal struggles and
come back stronger than before.
In Roman 5:1-11 NRSV, the
Apostle Paul writes concerning suf-
fering: Therefore since we are justified
by faith, we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ... we
boast in our hope of sharing the glory


of God...and not only in that but we
also boast in our sufferings, knowing
that suffering produces hope, and
hope does not disappoint us, because
God's love has been poured into our
hearts through the Holy Spirit that has
been given to us.
Every form of suffering may be
given back to God so that, like our
Crucified Saviour on the cross, we
wait for the faint glimmer of resurrec-
tion light to become a fuller expres-
sion of God's grace in some way. This
peace, glory, hope, character, and love
mentioned in these verses are our
reward for trust and obedience to
God as well.
We are still more than conquerors
and the Church will eventually see, in
the fullness of time, every barrier
overcome. It is for each generation to
emulate the best over-comers, model
this for the rest of the struggling hur-
dlers, and keep the rallying cry as We
can do all through Christ who
strengthzens uts. (Phil. 4:13) We can and
we wyill. the Lord being our helper.

DISILLUSIONED with others?
The gospel, the good news of Jesus,

One another. The family of the living
God which many others do not have,
and which many others need, and
which young people need in particu-

parents or elders to young people,
and their ears will soon be turned off.
But if you create a group within which

our church, to commit ourselves to
that, that there will be a place of

that others can be welcomed in.
This is a structural issue. It has to
do both with our commitment in our
church as well as with what it is that
we really believe. Do we believe that
we have good news to share? Do we?
And for those disillusioned with the
future? Who is our God? Is not our

eternity in the palm of his hand and
our lives with that: our past, our pres

SBy PASTOR MATTHEW ALLEN

AMERICAN .,
recording star "
Tina Turner g
recorded the.
popular song 1 1.
"What's love got '
to do with it". '.
The turmoil
and anarchy that
is so prevalent in
our nation
today, both nat-
urally and spiri-
tually, fits the
profile of the question asked in the
song by Ms Turner.
The repugnant criminal acts that
are being committed throughout the
length and breadth of this country,
the deterioration of the family struc-
ture and values; the methodical polit-
ical, religious and civic victimization
which seems to be the blood that
runs through the artery of the
Bahamas is due to the lack of love.
What would propel a man or
woman to intentionally and unlaw-
fully commit a murderous act?
Despite whatever answer one can
come up with to this question, the
real answer is the lack of love.
God's agape love has everything to
do with the existence and welfare of
mankind, His love is unconditional, it
keeps on giving and giving, expecting
nothing in return but man's obedi-
ence to His word. As a nation we've
failed to teach and display God's
love through our lifestyle to the
teenagers of today and for so doing


we're now reaping- the negative
results.
So, the answer to the question of
Ms Turner's song and the ills and
troubles that we're facing today is
this, "Love has everything to do with
it".
For us to get back on course, on
the pathway of righteousness, it's
going to take a costly investment of
time and money, and it's these two
precious commodities that many in
leadership are not willing to freely
give up. The lack of love is so evi-
dent among us to the point that fami-
lies are suffering in many areas of
their lives right in the midst of those
who are in a position to bring relief
and aid to the sufferers, but yet they
would not lift a finger to help.
John 3:16 says, For God so loved
the world, that he gave his only begot-
ten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have ever-
lasting life.
God expresses His love to the
world by giving, therefore if we as a
people want to see and experience
God's love in this beautiful Bahama
land a good place to start is at the
point of giving. The contamination of
the earthly giving process of
mankind to each other has given way
to the selfish greed that we're seeing
today.
To talk about or address the root
cause of our dilemma as a nation is
painful and uncomfortable therefore
many of our religious leaders, in
order not to offend their fellow
brothers of the cloth or their political
partners, would rather tip toe and


dance all around the truth.
The spirit of greed and selfishness
(all for me) has clouded and over-
shadowed the spirit of love and giv-
ing, thereby causing a violent revolt
throughout this land. It is said that
people don't care how much you
know, until they know how much
you care. All of the political and reli-
gious rhetoric that we're hearing
does absolutely nothing for the eco-
nomically, spiritually downtrodden
families of our nation.
The powers to be and the systems
that are in place are ensuring that
the economy of this country stays
within a certain realm. They are fully
aware that the church is the voice of
influence in the land, therefore
they've infiltrated the church
through perks and benefits for its
leaders who, in turn, are guiding and
directing the people to live a life of
dependency upon the world's sys-
'tems rather than God's system.
A person that's empowered finan-
cially and spiritually is a person that
the powers to be have no control
over.
Watch this! Yeshuwa Messiah was
anointed to preach the good news to
the poor (people overlooking oppor-
tunities repeatedly) and to expose
the thief who came to kill, steal and
destroy (John 10:10).
Erroneous religious teachings and
beliefs has the body of Christ in
ignorance to the truth which
Yeshuwa was referring to in John
10:10. I submit to you that He was
not referring to Satan as you have
been taught through a high spirited,


emotional message at your last con-
ference or revival. Yeshuwa specifi-
cally identifies Satan when speaking
of him. Luke 22:31 states, And the
Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold,
Satan hath desired to have you, that
he may sift you as wheat.
Whereas in John 10:10, He was
referring to religious and political
leaders who were killing, stealing
and destroying the lives of God's
people for their own personal finan-
cial gain. Therefore He said I am
come that you might have life (Zoe;
the God kind of life), and have it
more abundantly.
Love has everything to do with
restoring God's kingdom here in the
Bahamas and dispelling all the works
of the enemy.
I Corinthians 13:4 Charity/love
suffereth long, and is kind; charity
envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself,
is not puffed up,
:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own, is not easily pro-
voked, thinketh no evil.

We'll talk more about and expose
the thief of John 10:10, that Yeshuwa
is referring to.

hope". What better word to give to
young people; for them to know that
God says to them, "I know the plans I
have for you, for good and not for
evil, to give you a future and to give
you a hope".
HFft r

It's true that the future may lie
through difficult times, through the
valley of the shadow of death. It may
involve our bearing a cross from time
to time as our Saviour has done.
There may be illness or depression or
failure of our own, or that of others,
that we have to bear. But the good
news is this that no one. no one, can
take awaia from us the future that
God intends for those w;ho trust him.
No one. Nothing in li:c or; death can
separate us f'rom that. nJc our- young
people nee~d to kncoi that and to
know that decsperatel\ i!t there is a


path from God which gives them
hope, a future, that is the best of all
possible paths in this world.
This is good news. Good news for
the disillusioned. Good news for all.
Good news for you and for me. For
young and for old. Good news that we
have been entrusted with and must
share quite deliberately with others.
My friends, we live in a good news.

indeed and we've been called to

always like that. When it comes to real drunk~en-
ness, a person cannot turn it off and on so easily.
She also said that advertisements for alcohol always
present a glamourous picture, instead of showing
some of alcohol's less flattering images like drunk-
ards on the side of the road or the many families
that have been separated because of alcohol abuse.
A heartfelt rendition of "No One Ever Cared for
Me Like Jesus"' orought Ms Daisy's lively perform-
ance to an end. That song gave way to another char-
acter who appeared on stage bound by several
chains which rci resented the insecurities and fears
in her life. Fortunately, she was able to free herself
from the things that kept her back in life as she
quoted scriptures to herself and began singing,
"Take it Away".
Between performances, Pastor Trent Davis spoke
to the students about various issues. The highlight
of his brief talks however, must have been when he
showed the students his iPhone to make an illustra-
tion. After hyping the students up about this iPhone
and saying that he was about to throw it into the
audience for a lucky person, the students were all
screaming in excitement some of them even get-
ting into the aisles to catch the cellphone.
Pastor Davis threw the 'phone' into the audience
and the students were literally pushing each other
to get it. But it wasn't the iPhone at all. Pastor Davis
attempted to show the students that in life people
will always throw things at you that you may
believe is the real deal. However, one may end up
sadly mistaken,
"Nothing in life is ever free, remember that," he
told the crowd.
Throughout the production, Kent Johnson of
Christian Massive was also on hand to perform a
number of songs from the group's latest album, "Di
Hookk. He told Tribune Religion that students are
not lost as many have concluded. They simply need
direction in their lives, he added.
The star of the production, Terez Davis, who
plays all of the characters, said she had a desire to
create a school tour for several years. But Ms Davis
didn't pursue it until Desire Taylor, her best friend
and production inanager, encouraged her to go
after it. Ms Davis approached the Ministry of
Education with the idea. She believes that the
school tour will help to make a real transformation
in the school system.
"It's heart-wrenching what is going on now in the
schools. We realise that we are in a lot of grief. And
grief, when not attended to, can easily turn into
anger and resentment and then rage anid revenge.
So I want to help these students to see that God is
the avenger," Ms Davis told Tribune Religion.
By all~appearances, the CV Bethel students were
greatly impacted by this production. Charlton
Duvalier, a prefect at the school, told Tribune
Religion that the production reminded him that life
is all about character and integrity.
"I interpret the show as a way to help us students
to see that we shouldn't be distracted about what
we see around us or what people are saying about
us. It all depends on who we are and not what's
around," he said.

AS students of C V Bethel Senior High School,
and especially members of the senior class who
were friends with them, continue to come to grips
with the recent violent deaths of two of their class-
mates Jamil -Wilchcombe and Deangelo "Patches"
Cargill Golden Gates World Outreach Ministries
and Terez Davis, better known as "Dynamite
Daisy," recently launched their landmark "Hope to
Cope" school tour in an attempt to uplift their spir-
its and offer a sense of hope. .
While other government schools will view the
show at the church for a cost, it was decided that C
V Bethel students would be able to come free of
charge.
"As you know, C V Bethel has been under duress
and many of the children from the school have had
some insurmountable issues in addition to the fact
that some of them have had situations where stu-
dents have been murdered and injured,
"And of course, those kinds of things leave last-
ing effects on the student body as a whole," said
Trent Davis, assistant pastor at Golden Gates
World Outreach Ministries, and assistant coordina-
tor of the school tour.
Pastor Davis noted that it is important for the
community to rally around these students, and all
Bahamian students who are facing challenges in
their lives. He also noted that while some charac-
ters in this production were designed to offer comic
relief, it is also important for students to take home
a positive message that will assist them in produc-
tive living.
As the monologues unfold, those messages
become increasingly obvious. After a brief intro-
duction by Pastor Davis and an opening prayer
from Ros Davis, senior pastor of the church, the
eager students were introduced to Erica. .
With the students seated in the darkened sanctu-
ary, a single bright spotlight highlights a troubled
young lady as she gives testimony in her criminal
trial. She is facing jail time for murdering her
boyfriend.
At age 14, she met and fell in love with a 21 year
old man whom she later moved in with. After
months of abuse at his hands (even while pregnant
with his baby), she finally breaks free, only to let
him back into her home again after he claims to
want to see the baby. That same night, Erica ends
up stabbing him to death. However, as she testifies,
Erica is obl addened and regrets that she
didn't escape the relationship long before she got
herself in this predicament.
The second character, KC, is a prostitute with a
serious chip on her shoulder. We meet her on the
street corner where she is "selling whatever it is you
are man enough to buy". At first a comical sketch
with KC shouting to her potential 'johns' and
defending her right to prostitute her own body, her
monologue quickly turns serious as she begins to
tell of a mother who introduced her to prostitution
at a very young age.


GOLDEN' GATES World Outreach Ministries and Terez
Davis, better known as 'Dynamite Daisy' (shown), have
launched their landmark "Hope to Cope" school tour in
an attempt to uplift the spirits of students and offer a
sense of hope in the aftermath of the violent murders of
their classmates.

It is obvious that the students are being drawn
into her tale of woe. They are silent for the most
part, but react with disdain as KC tells <9thow her
mother would leave her in the house with men who
sexually abused her.
After KC leaves, students meet Ms Daisy who is
her usual spirited self. Obviously tipsy, she jokes
about her ability to drink alcohol without swallow-
ing which earns many loud laughs from the crowd.
She also has a remote control in her hand which she
uses to turn her drunkenness on and off on a whim.
She tells the students, however, that life is not
