MINISTER of State for Finance
Zhivargo Laing downplayed the pos-
sibility yesterday that the Bahamas'
economy could face a loss of 1.5 per
cent on its projected four per cent
growth to its gross domestic product
if the Baha Mar deal does not go for-
ward as planned.
On Wednesday, former minister
of State for Finance under the PLP
administration, James Smith, warned
that the Bahamas' current growth
rate of four per cent has to now be
trimmed mn view of the recent Baha
Mar announcements.
However, Minister Laing does not accept this position fro~
his immediate predecessor.
"I do not accept the view that the recent decision by Harrah
would mean a 1.5 per cent drop in our 2008 GDP. I do ne
accept that. I don't accept it because one can only make those
kinds of specific numbers predictions in respect of a matter if on
has an economic forecast model that quantifies the extent of an
project's contribution to our GDP in the course of a year. An
there is no one I know of today, in this country, who has th~
model," he pointed out.

Darold Miller's

ABy NATARIO McKENZIE
ATTORNEY Michael
Kemp, who represents local talk
show host Darold Miller in his
sexual harassment trial, yester-
day requested that the woman
who brought the allegations
against his client be recalled to
the witness stand.
The request was made by Mr
Kemp after he had completed
questioning psychologist Dr
Wayne Thompson, who had
counselled the virtual com-
plainant.
During questioning Mr
Kemp suggested to Dr Thomp-
son that he had wanted Mr
:e Miller's job. "You wanted
Darold's job. You moved into

AN EXCHANGE of letters
between the Christie government
and Baha Mar just before the
election revealed that neither side
wanted the Cable Beach land
transactions debated in the House
of Assembly.
To avoid public disclosure gov
ernment agreed to use the device
of granting a 99-year lease rather
than conveying full ownership in
the land to Baha Mar's develop-
ment company. Using provisions
in the Road Act the land could be
leased for 99 years by the Trea-
surer with the approval of the
Governor General. However, for
a grant of title in fee simple~ it had
to go to parliament.
After the lease transaction had
been completed and the company
had acquired possession for 99
years, the matter was then to be
taken to parliament for permis-
sion to have possession upgraded
to full ownership a conveyance
in fee simple,
This intent was expressed in
writing in several letters almost
two months before the 2007 elec-
tion between former prime min-
ister Perry Christie, Baha Mar
Resorts, and Sir Baltron Bethel of
the Bahamas Hotel Corporation.
In writing to Sir Baltron on
March 2, 2007 John M Forelle,
Baha Mar Resorts Limited vice
chairman and general counsel
said:

it has obtained its own opinion

A LACK of legal aid for

lengthy pre-trial detention

"The constitution provides

Senior vice-president of
administration and external
affairs at the Cable Beach
Resorts Robert Sands told The
Tribune yesterday that Baha
Mar is still in the "early days" as
it concerns determining what
steps should be taken following
tignpmul-tout of Hrrh's ntier-
development.
Mr Sands said that it is diffi-
cult to say how the current cir-
cumstances will affect any con-
tractors who hoped to work on
the redevelopment of the Cable
Beach strip.
However, he noted that Baha
Mar does not have to cancel any
agreements with contractors, as
none are in place as yet.

When asked if the Baha Mar

that "if necessary we will

Mr Sands added that Baha

will continue to treat Baha Mar
as if it still had a joint venture
until March 2009, when the
developers have to meet cer-
tain benchmarks which have
been agreed t~o.
In a surprising announce-
ment, Harrah's Entertainment -
the world's largest resort and
casino aerator -- least Frida
its agreement with Baha Mar,
which aimed to develop a mul-
ti-billion dollar resort on 1,000
acres to include a 100,000-
square foot casino and more
than 3,000 hotel and condo-
hotel units.
Nevertheless, Prime Minister
Ingrahant in parliament: this
week moved ahead with the res-
olutionto authorise government
to transfer the land on the
Cable Beach strip.
"We will do all we are sup-
posed to do to put Baha Mar
in the best position to proceed
with either another joint ven-

"With an estimated five mil-

When it comes to the type
of gaming which should be
considered for legalisation in
the country, Mr Gibson said
that he believes that Bahami-
ans are more inclined to
approve familiar cultural areas
of their gaming experience -
such as what is offered them in
the numbers house rather
than what is available at the
casmnos.

debate on the right of
Bahamians to participate in
gaming and just as important-
ly for us to decipher the vari-
ous tenets of this industry and
apply their tax revenue to
funding education, sports,

culture," he said.
Mr Gibson said that the
Bahamas is now at a point
where the tourism industry
may be facing its leanest har-
vest yet, and Bay Street Nas-
sau's main shopping area is
"uglier than Cinderella's two
sisters."
"Our nation is being
weaned off almost a century
of unchallenged and unfet-
tered pre-eminence in this
region's tourism market;
where almost 70 per cent of
our jobs relate directly and
indirectly to tourism," he said.
The MP said that the coun-

A NEW and independent
gaming industry may be a
viable option to stave off the
effects of a struggling tourism
industry and the downturn in
the US economy according to
Independent Kennedy MP
Kenyatta Gibson.
Speaking at a meeting of the
Toast Masters Service Club

former gaming board chair-
man said statistics show that
during times of economic belt-
tightening "people tend to still
savor a game of chance as a
means to that monthly mort-
gage payment, those school
fees and that long-awaited
vacation."
Mr Gibson, in proposing his
vision of re-tooling and re-
energsn the gaigindustry
to generate more revenue for
the Bahamas, suggested that a
parliamentary select commit-
tee be appointed as soon as
possible to report on gaming
as it presently exists in the
Bahamas.

T~HE latest US government
human rights report on the
Bahamas records the Depart-
ment bf Social Services as stat-
ing that this year saw a 75.8 per
cent drop in the number of
child abuse cases reported to
the agency.
That information was includ-
ed in a section of the US
Department of State's 2007
Annual Human Rights Report
focusing on the rights of chil-
dren.
In that section, the Bahamian
government was again pulled
up by the United States for not
allocating "sufficient funding
to maintain and improve child
welfare isnd education stan-

dahse report claims that
despite government and civic
Organisations conducting public
education programmes aimed
at reducing child abuse and
teaching "appropriate" parent-
ing behaviour "child abuse and
neglect remained serious prob-
lems" in the Bghamas.
However, this repeated cen-
sure is all the more striking in
light of the fact the US report
said that the Bahamian gov-
ernment's Department of
Social Services claimed that
there were only 149 cases of
child abuse reported to that
agency in 2007 an apparent
decrease of 469 cases compared
with the 618 documented in the
2006 edition.
Broken down, this amount-
ed to nine fewer cases of incest,
141 fewer cases of physical
abuse, 93 fewer cases of sexual
abuse and 249 less cases of
neglect. The department also
reportedly encountered five less
abandoned children in 2007.
'This very large overall reduc-
tion begs the question of
whether the change was posi-
tive the result of successful
counter-child abuse pro-
grammes; negative the result
of a smaller proportion of actu-
al cases being reported; or sim-
ply a mistake on the part of the
Department of Social Services
or the Department of State.
Other figures included in the
report indicate that despite the
Department of Social Services
reporting figures equating to
the 75.8 per cent drop in report-
ed cases, the agency in fact
"provided services" to a signif-
icantly increased number of
abused and neglected children
in 2007. This was done through
their public-private centre for
children, a public hospital fam-


ily violence programme and the
non-profit Crisis Centre. In
contrast to the 100 they helped
in the previous year, 250 were
aided in 2007, said the report.
The department again reit-
erated to those compiling the
US report that they believed
that only a minority of cases
were actually reported.
Abandoned children are
cared for by the Department
of Social Services up to, 18 years
of age, but the report notes that
the agency has "very limited
resources at its disposal."
While 90.5 per cent of school-
age children attended school,
the report repeated comments
made in the previous year, to
the effect that some public
schools "lacked basic educa-
tional materials and were over-
crowded."

Re~p rt c beacucms ed onl i
at www.state.gov.
Calls made to director of
Social Services Melanie Zonicle
and deputy director Mavis
Allen Hill seeking comment on
the reported decrease were not
returned up to press time.

lation of lightning arrestors,
which has to be an engineer-
ing snafu or a grossly neglect-
ed oversight before now.
However, there are still
deficiencies that affect the
overall reliability of the sys-
tem.
(a) Grounding The pre-
sent strategy involves placing a
coiled copper line at the bot-
tom of a buried pole and
extended to the distribution
feed. This methodology served
adequately in the yesteryears.
However, today's electronic
evolution and digital era of
global communication reveals
some of these inefficiencies.
(b) Evidence Grand
Bahama has an extremely
high incidence of failed or
damaged equipment such as
refrigerators, air conditions,
microwaves, washers, dryers
and TV's and the public's out-
cry is going unheeded.
Reasons Most of today's
electrical and electronic
devices can handle up to +/- 25
per cent variations in voltage
fluctuations but few can han-
dle --10 per cent in cycle or
hertz changes.
Proof If a survey was to
be conducted today of all busi-
nesses and home owners that
have e ectrical cls on t eir
property, be it a microwave,
stove or stand-alone clocks
you will find that if not all,
more than 90 per cent of them
have to constantly adjust those
clocks (usually they have sped
up).
esu ts Te irony Thf all
this is that our electrical
meters utilize similar windings
to our clocks and are affected
exactly the same. Electricity
producing turbines and
engines are usually stable in
their cycle/hertz productions.
Hence, our billings for services
ac ua ly used are liewise
inflated because of this mala-
dy. .
Possible cause An mnde-
pendent user with an extreme-


EDITOR, The Tribune.

LOCAL newspapers in the
last few days carried articles
about power bill increases in
Grand Bahama. Usually the
power bills are conveniently
blamed on oil costs.
This is partially true but
there are other mitigating fac-
tors that dispel the totality of
this claim.
Without generalising elec-
tricity costs on the whole, let's
take a look at GB Power
operations.
Mr Tony Lopez, VP
Finance ex lained that devas-
tation caused by the hurri-
canes of 2004 and 2005 dealt
the company a financial blow.
In reality the years prior to
this period the company gloat-
ed in its financial windfall due
to low distribution mainte-
nance cost.
The proverbial rule of 'if
something isn't broke don't
fix it' is very evident in man-
agement's reluctance to effect
scheduled maintenance on
wooden electrical poles buried
in the ground for 15-20 years,
far surpassing their intended
life ex ectanc .
Ninety percent of power
loss to the public was due to
downed power poles (distrib-
ution avenues) rather than
power plant or turbine failure.
President and CEO of GB
Power Company Mr E O Fer-
rell said that the rate increase
was due mainly to:-
(1) Inflation
(2) Significant increase in
equipment cost
(3) $30 million in invest-
ment in systems upgrades
Let's evaluate the merit of
these points:--
(1) Inflation a given, world
and local standards govern
this criteria.
(2) Equipment cost with-
out specifies and indicated as a
generality, could be attributed
to No. 1 inflation.
(3) More than $30 million
in e uiment u grades. The
obvious, that meets the eye is
the aforementioned pole
replacements which I believe
is still diligently being carried
out. Also, the massive instal-


ly high power demand for an
electrical motor is adversely
causing a variation in
cycle/hertz production at the
power company resulting in
an unfair disadvantage to the
average or moderate con-
sumer.
Solution The govern-
ment regulatory board, The
Pubhec Utilities Committee,
has proven themselves capa-
ble in research and solutions
and may offer a much needed
resolve here. The overall sub-
missions of these findings
should actually offset or
ne ate the need for rate
increases. At this place and
time the indications given are
insufficient to tax a non-vary
consumer.
Grand Bahama's geograph-
ical location places it 88 miles
due east of Ft Lauderdale,
Florida. Florida is considered
the lightning capital of the
world, recording more light-
ning strikes per year than the
rest of the world combined.
This phenomenon is an occur-
rence of convectional activity
across the panhandle created
by the Gulf of Mexico and the
Atlantic Ocean.
The reluctance to domi-
nance of one over the other
wreaks havoc in the atmos-
pheiic conditions over Florida,
occasionally spilling over into
Grand Bahama and Bimini (as
is occurring tonight Wednes-
da March 5, 2008).
The Bahamas, however, is
usually protected by the fast
moving waters of the Gulf
Stream.
My congratulations ale also
in order for the Grand
Bahama Power Company
which withstood over 80 light-
ning strikes last night,
Wednesday, March 5, 2008
and did not lose power, the
light flickered but was never
extinguished.
The lightning arrestor sys-
tem has already proven its
worth,
Last night's storm was a rare
occurrence. Well done!

:s' now uncovered

agreement between his company and the gov-
ernment. Mr Ingraham said that was how he got
the agreement. Confidential clauses were
referred to in the agreement. However, it was
not until the Ingraham government came to
power that letters required from the various
government departments came to light. These,
among others, were tabled in the House for the
first time last year by Minister Brent Symonette.
They revealed that the parties were desperate to
keep the Cable Beach land transactions from
the public. This was their big secret, which has
now been exposed for the first time.
Correspondence just before the election
showed that government had agreed to transfer
the Cable Beach properties without taking the
matter to parliament. They got around this
through the Road Act which provides that the
Treasurer can grant a lease which does not
haan in feeosfompar fl onershia thic de
have to go to parliament. It was agreed that
the Treasurer would transfer the land to Baha
Mar on a 99-year lease at $1 a year. The Christie
government then undertook to seek parlia-
mentary approval 120 days after the first sup-
plement to the heads of agreement had been
executed. At this time the 99-year leasehold
would be converted into a fee simple title (full
ownership) and transferred to Baha Mar. By
then Mr Christie obviously felt confident that he
would have secured a second five year term
and the future would be plain sailing for the
B li-ha Mar deal.
In a letter of March 2, 2007 to Sir Baltron
Jethel of the Hotel Corporation, Baha Mar's
counsel said that "we are willing, however, to
Split the government agreements in two and
rely on the Mimister's commitment under the
Roads Act rather than bringing this matter
before the full Legislature."
As for Skyline Drive, Baha Mar counsel also
said in part: "The company is willing to accept
the device of the use of confidential Minister's
commitment under the Roads Act rather than a
specific parliamentary approval of the deferred
closure of Skyline Drive." (See story page 1).
Mr Christie had already had a hint from ques-
tions being asked by both the FNM Opposi-
tion and private citizens that there would be a
public outcry if the full extent of these generous
land acquisitions were to come to the floor of
the House for debate.
The devise they planned to use to keep this
transaction from Bahamians was obviously the
secret that the Christie government aren't
reveal before the election. We now understand
the foot dragging. But what disappointment
from a man, who, on coming to power, had
promised his people that his would be a trans-
parent government.
*See story page 1.


Christie's 'secret

ON TUESDAY Opposition Leader Perry
Christie accused Prime Minister Ingraham of
directly sabotaging the $2.6 billion Baha Mar
resorts project at Cable Beach. Mr Christie,
anxious to get the blame monkey off his back,
wanted Mr Ingraham to take full "responsi-
bility" for setting back, "if not killing" the Cable
Beach development.
We are certain I~ir Ingraham has no intention
of taking the blame, nor do we think he should.
One only has to compare the project in the
hands of Mr Christie and his government over
a four-year period and Mr Ingraham's in the
past 11 months to understand why.
In those four years the Christie government
was "giving away" (PLP words when it was
politically convenient for them to use them)
large tracts of Bahamian land at Cable Beach,
while in 11 months Mr Ingraham was able to
lad ko wIrd fe an elna Tre rat o a
large area for the enlargement of Goodman's
Bay for public recreation, lease 50 acres of
Crown Land instead of selling 70'acres, and
reduce several other financial contributions
government was to make to the project.
The Resolution for the transfer of land to
Baha Mar for its development was passed in
the House on March 5. By the next day Harrah's
had sent out an official letter in which it outlined
the squeeze in the credit market, the lengthy
delays in getting the agreement approved by
government, and Mr Ingraham's doubts on the
company meeting its deadlines.
However, it is doubtful that Mr Ingraham's
comments had any bearing on Harrah's~deci-
sion. In its letter to the Baha Mar group, Har-
rah's noted that Baha Mar was aware that it
had been evaluating the status of the project for
some time. "We have come to the conclusion
that it is unlikely the project can succeed as
currently structured."
However, we believe Mr Christie started
running politically scared of the project when on
May 10, 2005 the FNM tackled his government
on "secret clauses" in the agreement. They
demanded that the entire agreement be laid on
the table of the House. On May 25, 2005 Mr
Obie Wilchcombe, who was at the time Minis-
ter of Tourism, then took to the House what was
purported to be the "full agreement." The FNM
knew they did not have everything and kept
asking questions. They were assured that noth-
ing had been held back.
Mr Ingraham told the House that he even-
tually went to Mr Dirk Izmirlian, a man, he
said, "he held in high esteem," and told him
that when he became Prime Mimister if there
were secret agreements that had not been dis-
closed, he would not honour them, because, as
far as he was concerned, they did not exist.
Mr Izmirlian then gave Mr Ingrahayn the

the Financial Secretary and also
with the Secretary of Revenue
and it was both their views that
it was not the usual practice for
rates of Custom duty to be
changed in the middle of the

business operators who had
been importing and distribut-
ing the product, having been
charged the 10 per cent rate,
would suffer serious hardship if
the rate was suddenly changed
to 45 per cent in the middle of
the financial year.
"It was further agreed that it
was reasonable enough to allow
the 10 per cent rate to prevail
until a review during the
upcoming budget process," he
said.


THE Progressive Liberal Par-

"The party intends to address
the matter more fully in a news

pletion of our initial review,"
said the party in a statement.

FREEPORT A large mar-
ijuana field has been discov-
ered off the Grand Bahama
Highway, police report.
Chief Superintendent Basil
Rahming revealed that fol-
lowing the discovery, 1,250
marijuana plants were uproot-
ed by Drug Enforcement Unit
officers.
He said the officers, acting
on information received from
a source, proceeded through
track road off Grand Bahama
Highway around 6.45am last
week Friday.
There, they reported dis-
covering a large marijuana
field.
The plants ranged in height
from six inches to eight feet
tall, he said.


Stipt Rahming said police
conducted a surveillance exer-
cise in the area for several
days with no results.
They then confiscated the
plants. Mr Rahming said
investigations has been
launched to try to determine
the identity of the person or
persons responsible for
cultivating the marijuana
plants.
The discovery comes just
after the US State Depart-
ment, in its 2008 narcotics
report, noted a marked
increase in marijuana cultiva-
tion in the Bahamas, saying
Jamaican nationals are to a
large extent responsible.
As a result, the US has
begun to list the Bahamas as
among the drug producing
nations in the region, where
before the country was
referred to as only a trans-
shipment nation.

tinue until March 15.
"We have not held anything
back for this event," said
Petherina Hanna, manager of

"We have ensured that it has
quantity and quality in terms
of the entertainment. The
three artists who are recog-
nised as the top music per-
formers in the country will be

to Exuma from their bases in
New Providence, Orlando and
Grand Bahama.
"But in addition to that, we
have the best that Exuma has
to offer with appearances by


bands such as George Whylly

best of all worlds," she said.
Ms Hanna pointed out that
the festival extends beyond
music. She said organizers aim

including a glimpse into the
legend of Pompey, Exuma's
famous slave rebel leader.
The festival also offers an
extensive list of culturally-

participants.
"Our demonstrations and
competitions have become an
item that is much anticipat-
ed," Ms Hanna said. "The
competitions are an opportu-
nity to really interact and be
fully involved with the festi-
val. Participants can feel the

ories with onion peeling,
coconut barking, and pea
shelling competitions and oth-

Of local doctor

FREEPORT A second man was charged in Freeport Mag-
istrates Court with the armed robbery of a local doctor two
weeks ago.
Rashid Farrington, a 22-year-old resident of Cabot Drive,
was not re uired to enter plea to the armed robbery charge,
which is an mndictable offence.
It is alleged that March 1 the accused, while being concerned
together with another and armed with a knife, robbed the doc-
tor of 150 cash, a Land wallet, and one Bahamian driver's
licence, together valued at $240.
The matter was adjourned to April 29 for a preliminary
inquiry. Farrington was remanded to Her Majesty's Prison,
Fox Hill, until that time.

STEMMING the violence that
is claiming the lives of many
young men and swelling the
prison population numbers con-
tinues to be a priority for the gov-
ernment, Minister of State for
Immigration Elma Campbell said.
Addressing the Crime Preven-
tion Symposium at Her Majesty's
Prison, Senator Campbell said
officials at the correctional facili-
ty should be applauded for stag-
ing the symposium as it "clearly
reflects" the national resolve to
work individually and collective-
ly to halt and reverse recent dis-
turbmng trends in crime.hlwih
The symposium was hedwt
the objective of investigating the
causes, consequences and cures
for crime in the Bahamas.
Senator Campbell said the
symposium also provided gov-
ernment and law enforcement
officials with an opportunity to
hear from persons convicted of
committing: crimes as they move
forward in formulating and imple-
menting effective crime preven-
tion policies and strategies.
It also, she noted, allows
inmates to hear from the victims
of crime and for ex-offenders to
share their views and experiences
on their efforts to reintegrate into
society.

Initially, Baha Mar, more than any other
project, had been the driving force behind
previous projections for the economic sus-
tainability of 2008. As much as $400 million
was expected to be pumped into the Bahami-
an economy to develop the properties on
Cable Beach through 2008 until the end of
March 2009.
However, even these additional renovations
have now been drawn into question after Har-

vided with legal representa-
tion by the government, in
the form of legal aid.
This leaves "large num-
bers of defendants without
adequate representation",
with this deficit contributing
to the excessive pretrial
detention of many by deny-
ing the accused "the means
to press his or her case
towards trial."
Yesterday minister of state
for legal affairs Desmond
Bannister said that "any
practitioner in law" would
agree with the concerns
expressed in the report as
they relate to legal aid.
He pointed to the fact that
the FNM, in its Manifesto
2007, has already committed


itself to "establishing a statu-
tory government-funded
legal aid scheme."
"That's one of the objec-
tives of the government and
quite frankly our system,
needs some kind of govern-
ment supported legal aid,"
he stated.
"One of the bases of the
courts is fairness to every-
body and we do have a lot of
young people who come
before the courts who do not
have attorneys, who do not
have the means to, and its a
concern for everybody."
However, Mr Bannister
said that the government
would not wish to act before
the recommendations of the
Legal Aid Commission,
appointed under the former
government, are finalised.
Former Christian Council
president William Thomp-
son and Director of the
Legal Aid Clinic at the
Eugene Dupuch Law School
attorney Dion Hanna were
members of that commis-
ston.
In the UK, the Legal Ser-
vices Commission provides
legal aid to individuals in
civil cases who pass a "finan-
cial means" test, and a "legal
merits" test, as laid down by
parliament.
Free legal representation
xon cr minal eases iis avaitia e
whose cases are to be heard
in the magistrate's court who
could be subject to impris-
onment.
Meanwhile, legal aid is
automatically provided for
those under the age of 16,
people aged 16 or 17 with no
income and living with their
parents or guardian and peo-
ple under 18 and in full time
education or those on unem-
ployment benefits. A simi-
lar system exists in the US,
also through a Legal Ser-
vices Commission.
The latest Human Rights
Report can be accessed

message left for Mr Hanna
yesterday afternoon was not
returned up to press time.

Sir Baltron's letter was copied
to Mr Christie, Messrs Bradley
Roberts, Vincent Peet, James
Smith, Sean McWeeney and Mrs
Allyson Maynard Gibson.
LOn Marcha9 in a re ease fr m
that it had terminated its involve-
ment with the Baha Mar project,
It said that "unfortunately, it
has taken Baha Mar Develop-
ment Company longer to orga-
nize the project than anticipated
and circumstances have changed
such that it is simply not prudent
to move forward. We do not have
confidence that the proposed
joint venture could successfully
complete the project as originally
contemplated and accordingly we
believe it could prove harmful for
all to move forward."
Speaking in the House after


the Harrah's announcement
Prime Minister Ingraham asked
the PLP Opposition:
"Do members Opposite not
know what they were supposed
to do? That is, come to Parlia-
ment for authority to transfer that
land. If tphe hadtdodneawnhdatthey
to Parliament with a Resolution
authorising the transfer of por-
tions of West Bay Street and the
median strip to Baha Mar, Har-
rah's would not have had this
item to include as one of its rea-
sons to terminate the joint ven-
ture. Instead members Opposite
sought to structure the matter so
as to avoid coming to parliament
on one section of the transfer and
to postpone coming to parliament
until a date following the general
election on the other."

man and chief executive officer
of Baha Mar, wrote to Mr
Christie on March 19, 2007 and
copied his letter to Bradley
Roberts, then Minister of Works,
and lawyer Sean McWeeney. Said
the letter in part:
"Parliamentary Approval of
Treasurer Land Transfers: Four
parcels of real property require
the approval of both houses of
Parliament under the terms of the
existing purchase and sale agree-
ment between the Government
and Baha Mar: (1) Old West Bay
Street; (ii) a strip of land 100 feet
wide running from the south side
of Old West Bay Street south to
the Water and Sewerage Corpo-
ration parcels, (iii) the Cecil Wal-
lace Whitfield Centre and (iv) the
old Police Station. Baha Mar now
proposes that the Government
purchase and sale agreement be
.amended so that parliamentary
approvals will not be required at
this time as follows: A) as to Old
West Bay Street, Baha Mar is
willing to rely on Section 14(1)
of the Roads Act, which provides
that the Minister responsible for
Roads may enter into an agree-
ment with Baha Mar Joint Ven-
ture for the exchange of Old West
Bay Street lands for new West
Bay Street lands, and such Min-
ister may direct the Treasurer to
convey such lands without Par-
liamentary approval; and B) as
to the other three parcels, Baha
Mar is willing to accept a non-
forfeitable 99-year lease from the
Treasurer at one dollar per year
rather than immediate con-
veyance of the fee simple inter-
ests, with an undertaking by the
government to seek Parliamen-
tary approval within 120 days
after the date of execution of the
Supplemental Heads of Agree-
ment. Under Section 5(3) of the
Ministry of Finance Act, the
Treasurer may grant leases with
the approval of the Governor


General; Parliamentary approval
is not required. Of course, a con-
dition of the Government granti-
ng the 99-year leases on the Cecil
Wallace Centre and Police Sta-
tion would be completion of the
new Ministry of Finance building
and new Police Station, respec-
tifiely."
Acknowledging receipt of
Sarkis Izmirlian's letter addressed
to then prime minister Christie,
Sir Baltron wrote on March 27,
2007 in reference to the land
transfers:
"The Government is in agree-
ment with the proposal relating to
this matter set forth in your letter.
"Accordingly, the existing West
Bay Street and median strip will
be conveyed in reliance upon the
provisions of Section 14(1) of the
Roads Act. The Minister respon-
sible for Roads would enter into
an agreement with Baha Mar for
the exchange of the existing West
Bay Street lands and median strip
for the new West Bay Street lands
and would direct the Treasurer
to convey the lands. As a result,
the conveyance would not require
parliamentary approval. With
respect to the strip of land along
Corridor 7 between existing West
Bay Street and the Water and
Sewerage land, the Cecil Wallace
Whitfield Centre and the old
Police Station, the Government
shall enter into binding agree-
ment with Baha Mar for a 99-year
lease from the Treasurer at $1
per year, rather than conveyances
of the fee simple interests, with an
undertaking by the Government
to seek parliamentary approval
within 120 days after the date of
execution of the First Supplement
to the Heads of Agreement. After
Parliamentary approval has been
granted, the agreements shall pro-
vide that instead of 99 year lease-
hold interests being created, there
shall be conveyances of fee simple
interests in accordance with the


ing $17.686 million for the build-
ing and conveying 2.259 acres of
replacement land on West Bay
Street. As for the Cable Beach
Police Station, Baha Mar was to
bear the costs of relocation and
replacement. The quality and size
was to be upgraded and expand-
ed with government paying 50 per
cent of the increased cost to
c xpand the facility.
Again anxious that the Trea-
surer be directed to "convey such
lands without parliamentary
approval," Sarkis Izmirlian, chair-

At that point Mr Kemp

years equivalent to $64 mil-
The first document seen by The
ibune is a March 2, 2007, letter
nt by John Forelle, Baha Mar's
:e-chairman and general coun-
,to Sir Baltron.
He said Baha Mar and Har-
h's Entertainment were "not
pared to continue the massive
llar investment required (over
00 million)" to bring this pro-
:t to the point where financing
n be consummated with the


uncertainty" lingering over
whether Baha Mar had fulfilled
its obligations set out in the orig-
inal April 6, 2005, Heads of
Agreement.
These obligations were that
SBaha Mar would invest $400 mil-
lion in equity capital; that it would
obtain equity financing of $1 mil-
lion; and that it would find world-
class casino and hotel operating
partners.
Baha Mar and the Government
were disputing whether these con-


editions had been met, writh Mr
Forelle asking the Christie admin-
istration to either confirm this or
wave the conditions precedent.
Turning to the outstanding
issues between the two parties,
Mr Forelle wrote that on the
question of investment incentives,
Baha Mar could accept 27 years
of casino tax concessions from
the new Cable Beach casino's
opening, plus co-operative mar-
keting support of $4 million per
annum for 16 years, "pr-ovided


that the Government acknowl-
edges that the project is entitled
to the same concessions (on a
proportional basis) as Kerzner,
and adjustments to the conces-
sion amounts (both quantum and
duration) will be made.
"In determining proportionali-
ty of investment, Kerzner's invest-
ment will be determined to be
$1.56 billion and [Baha Mar's]
investment will be deemed to be
$2.234 billion."

THE fiscal deficit for the first half of the Government's 2007-2008
Budget cycle increased by almost 100 per cent to just shy of $100
million, data from the Central Bank of the Bahamas showed, a sta-
tistic likely to alarm those worried about the consistent red ink on
the public sector balance sheet.
The Ceritral Bank's report on monthly economic and financial
developments for January 2008 noted that the fiscal deficit, which
measures the difference between government revenues and spend-
ing, stood at $99.4 million as at end-December 2007, a 97.95 per cent
increase over the previous year's $50.2 million deficit.
This effectively means that during the first six months of the Gov-
ernment's Budget cycle, to December 31, 2007, it spent almost
$100 million more than it earned.
Breaking the Government's fiscal performance for the period
down, the Central Bank data showed that while import duties col-

Baha Mar: PLP government


COR C OS S10R S


Baha Mar 'negatives'


deter firm investment

Chamber chief: 'Both governments screwed it up'
a By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE apparent collapse of Baha Mar's $2.6 billion Cable Beach
expansion will deter many Bahamian-owned businesses from carrying
out investment and expansion plans, the Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce's president told The Tribune yesterday, as there were "too
~; a~aiaR~rmany negatives out there" to encourage business confidence.
';li~~i:Blaming both the former PLP administration and the FNM gov-
ernment for "screwing the deal up" at Cable Beach, Dionisio D'Aguilar
urged the Government to "pull out all the stops" to salvage the deal,
iLP c~iieven though it appeared to be "a lost cause"'.
Speaking to the wider ramifications of the Cable Beach situation, Mr
: D'Aguilar said: "There is no doubt this deal has sent a message to every
Bahamian businessman to stop and think how to proceed in the future.
"It has left people in wait and see mode. If you are about to expand
your business, or thinking about it, you are gomng to delay, pull back
and reconsider.
"There's too many negative things out there. The US economy, if not
~ ~Bl~lJ in recession, is not in good shape, tourism arrivals are down, and
there are no significant projects at this time, although the Albiany
development is due to start. Atlantis is supposed to expand Hurricane

SBy CARA
BRENNEN-BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter
BAHAMIAN companies have
been told they need to be aware
of the damaging effects cyber
crime can have on their tangible
and intangible profits and ensure
that those losses are calculated
into the accounts of their busi-
ness.
While specific figures are not
available for the Bahamas as it
relates to profit loss, John Bain
of HLB Galanis, Bain, said that
any business that uses computer
data is not completely safe


Baha Mar

FROM page one
Supplemental Heads of Agree-
Sment negotiations were closed,
Baha Mar and the Government
would meet to determine what
budget categories were included
in Kerzner's numbers, "and, as,
applicable, review the concessions
granted upon conclusion of the
budget review and verification
exercise".
Mr Forelle said Baha Mar
., wanted included in calculations
Sof its project investment the $150
$ million invested in upgrading the
Existing Cable Beach Resorts, but
nE ot the $45.3 million the Gov-
ernment had committed to for
'!infrastructure improvements.
Then, a March 9, 2007, letter
from Gregory Djerejian, Baha
leal and e elopet agi tr'?:
rated that the developers felt
that the Government's infra-
stracture bpend mod p e-m ret-
should be included in the gaming
tax and marketing concessions.
"It appears that the Govern-
ment is trying to manipulate the
'proportional' concept with the
crecessios n ane K rn nehre
S notwithstanding that Baha Mar's
committed spend is significantly
higher than Kerzner's," Mr
Djerejian wrote.
After a further letter sent to
thePrme sister bt ex Im r
27, 2007, that despite Baha Mir ~
not providing the. Government
with information on "alleged
redundancies, lay-offs, reduced
work days, termination of shop
leases and clearing of wetlands"'
the Government should grant the
incentives sought.
In a March 27, 2007, letter to
Mr Izmirlian, he committed the
SGovernment to providing to B h
Mar "the same concessions as
Ir granted to Kerzner up to the less-
er of the actual or committed
"".i'~spend to a value of $1.56 billion,
P; ithe committed spend of Kerzn-
er"This would amount to 27
Syears of casino tax concessions
I-... .~fnmtdhe opecng c bh tew ca
to the co-operative marketing of
"", no, ion, ron*?, n pe
sent value basis, would represent
18.3 per cent of the committed
Incentives granted to Baha
Mar for actual or committed
h.spend between $1.56 billion and
$2.369 billion would be equiva-
lent to 9 per cent of net present
value.

SBahamian businesses ar e C



told of cyber crune threat ~


i.e. overtime of staff and the pay-
ment to technicians.
He said the losses are even
greater when the company's
main source of business is
through the computer whether
it be an online retailer, a bank
which does transactions online
or an internal computer system
for clients.
These are intangible loses and
also inclinde the loss of produc-
tivity if systems have to be
upgraded.
While it may prove difficult to
quantify loses, particularly the
intangible, Mr Bain told accoun-
tants that they must take this into
consideration when performing
rsnds: o, ital sesthe c un
try to be able to establish nec-
essary statistics on the overall
impact of cyber crime in the
country; two, the company itself
may need the information for
insurance claims purposes; and
three, it allows the company to
internally track its impact, for
example they can look at per-
forinance during the period
when the system may have be
impacted and the corresponding
period mn past years.
Mr Bain was speaking to
accountants on their role in com-


putting the cost of cyber crime at
a Bahamas Institute of Chartered
Accountants Seminar on
'Upholding Integrity, Striving for
Excellence' held at the British
Colomial Hilton yesterday.


against cyber crime and the
effects can be extremely damag-
ing.
In fact, he noted that the loss-
es incurred when three Internet
viruses affected US computers
in one incident was estimated at
$12 billion.
In the United Kingdom, he
said that there are at least ten
computer breaches an hour, he
said. These acts, he said! are, in
many cases, done by young com-
puter savvy persons who do so
"simply because they can."
He said that in addition to the
initial financial loss which is
occurred, there can be damage
to a company's reputation, if it
has to infrm hjl ent tasty

operations. The theft of person-
al data such as credit card infor-
mation or client finances can also
have a negative impact.
This could lead to a drop in
stock price, loss of additional
client business from existing
business and the loss of potential
new clients.
In the event that there is a
breach, Mr Bain explained that
the losses can be tangible such
as the cost to having to replace
computer software, or program-
ing, the cost of data re-entry -

PAGE 4B, THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 2008


THE Public Utilities Com-
mission (PUC) yesterday said
it needed the Bahamas
Telecommunications Compa-
ny (BTC) to return 190,000
Global System for Mobile
Communications (GSM)
numbers to it so it can allow
existing TDMA cellular cus-
tomers to keep their current
numbers when switching over
to GSM.
Denying that it was pre-
venting or delaying the trans-
fer of TDMA numbers to the


GSM network, the PUC said
BTC held 190,000 TDMA
numbers that it previously
agreed to return as part of
the migration of TDMA cus-
tomers to the GSM service.
*PrallSfff

The transfer is necessary
because manufacturers have
discontinued the TDMA sys-
tem.
The telecoms regulator
added: "The PUC issued


BTC 440,000 GSM numbers
for GSM customers. BTC
has now advised the PUC
that they want to retain the
190,000 TDMA numbers and
convert them to GSM for a
total of 630,000 GSM num-
bers. This would be an ineffi-
cient use of numbering
resources, smece BTC wants
to keep the 190,000 TDMA
numbers at the expense of
the structure of the Bahamas
national numbering plan.
"The PUC needs BTC to
return approximately 190,000
other GSM numbers in order
for the PUC to properly
maintain the Bahamas' num-
ber allocation' use plan."
The PUC is a member of
the North American Num-
bering Plan Administration
(NANPA), which oversees
the regulation of numbering .
and telecommunication ser-
vices worldwide.
As a member of this body
the PUC has a responsibility
for the proper administration
of a national numbering plan
for the Bahamas.
Telephone numbers are
issued in blocks of 10,000
numbers, and it is important
for telephone companies to
manage these numbers effi-
ciently in compliance with
the national numbermng plan.
Numbers are limited and
have to be allocated and dis-
tributed based on present
and future needs of the

express yourself. Everyone
has a focus on movies."
In terms of advising other
budding Bahamian movie
and film producers/directors,
Mr Mortimer said: "It looks
sexy, but it's hard work. You
need to figure out what it is
about you that will stand out,
really put yourself on the mne
and really think about it,
"Look at the major direc-
tors and how they started
their careers. Pick a mentor
and do not be afraid to take
risks, take chances, and do
something different. That's
what we try to do with our
films all the time.
"I don't think people
reahise you can make money
from a film, and it's impor-
tant to start that industry and
get things going."


MBy NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamas can develop
"a very good" indigenous
film and TV production
industry, an emerging
Bahamian director/producer
told The Tribune, especially
if it focuses ohn issues and
themes directly related to this
nation and the Caribbean.
Kareem Mortimer, whose
film Float earned major dis-
tribution deals with
VH1/MTV, Frameline and in
Europe, said the Bahamas
could learn much from South
Africa's experience in the
early 1990s.
Initially, that country's
budding movie industry had
concentrated on producing
films that competed directly
with Hollywood. That strate-
gy failed, and forced them to
make productions about
South Africa and Africa, a
development that caused the
sector to "become prof-
it able", aroused consumer
interests and led to the devel-
opment of new audience
makets i Edthmurope and te

The Bahamian film and TV
production industry, though
still very much mn its mnfancy,
appears to have ignited a
spark among young Bahami
aHS, eager to embrace it as an
Outlet for their creative tal-

ens.art from the success

enjoyed to date by Mr Mor-
timer, who is currently wrap-
pmng post-prod etioll on a

Dumm~y, before commencing
filming of his next film, Day-
break, in July, other talented
Baddmian producers and
directors include Maria Foc-


an with Rain.
"I think it can become very
good," Mr Mortimer said of
the burgeoning Bahamian
film industry.
Adding that half his cur-
rent production crew were
Bahamian, he said: "I would
love the day when I get my
whole crew, who have experi-
ence in domng films, from
here.
"I think there are many dif-
ferent ways in which Bahami-
ans can become involved in
funding films in and out of
the Bahamas. Nigerian films
do well in Jamaica, other
Caribbean countries and oth-
er parts of Africa."
Of the current Bahamian
interest in the film industry,
Mr Mortimer told The Tri-
bune: "It's just a new way to

posed drastic annual increas-
es," Coakley said Tuesday.
Her office's objections to
the insurance premiums turn
on the model the FAIR Plan
uses to calculate the risk of
damage by hurricanes, high
winds, and other storms on
Cape Cod. The FAIR Plan
uses a model that includes
predictions that Cape Cod
could be hit by either.a cate-
gory 4 or 5 hurricane, though
neither has occurred in New
England in 156 years, accord-
ing to Coakley's office.
FAIR Plan's president,
John Golembeski, defended
his agency's weather models,
which predict "a very low
probability of a 4 or 5 hurri-
cane." To ensure a more
accurate picture, he added,


the insurer combines two dif-
ferent models that are also
used by other insurers and
rating agencies.
But Coakley said the mod-
el is severely flawed. She bol-
stered her case with testimo-
ny from James O'Brien, a
former professor of meteo-
rology and oceanography at
Florida State University. He
argued in hearings this year
that the model is not accu-
rate, because it does not
reflect the actual history of
hurricanes on the Cape.
"No model should be used
if the hurricane frequency,
intensity distribution, or geo-
graphic location of the hurri-
canes are not consistent with
the historical data," O'Brien
said, according to the brief.

attorney general filed a for-
mal objection to a proposed
25 per cent hike in premiums
for Cape Cod homeowners
who are covered by the
FAIR Plan, the state's prop-
crty insurer of last resort.
The brief, filed Monday
and released Tuesday to the
public, argued that the pro-
posed increase 25 per cent
for a second straight year is
unfair and unjustified by the
peninsula's weather and hur-
ricane patterns. The attorney
general said Cape Cod's

els that the Massachusett's
FAIR Plan used to determine
premiums. About 150,000 of
the state's homeowners are
covered by the FAIR Plan.
If the increase is approved,
the FAIR Plan said its aver-
age annual premium on Cape
Cod and the islands would
jump to $2,282 later this year,
from the current average,
$1,826, which has been in
effect since October 2006.
Prior to that, the average cost
was $1,432, effective Decem-
ber 2004.
Attorney General Martha
Coakley also objected to the
proposed 13.2 per cent rate

average of $2,007, from

sion by Harrah's] was made. But
80 per cent was the fact that the
deal took three years to negotiate,
and 15 per cent was the land
transfers.
"When the new owners came
in, Harrah's said: 'Man, I'm not
into this. It's taking too long'."
Mr D'Aguilar said Mr Ingra-
ham's House of Assembly
remarks were "the final nail in
the coffin" for Harrah's involve-
ment as an equity partner at
Cable Beach.
The gaming industry giant,
though, in announemng its termi-
nation of the joint venture part-
nership, appeared to leave the
door open to becoming a pure
operating/brand/management
partner at Cable Beach, yet with
no capital or equity involvement.
To some, this appears as if Har-
rah's wants to re-work the agree-
ment in such a fashion that it
would not have to commit $212
million in equity.
Acknowledging that it was
going to be "very difficult" for
B'aha Mar to attract an alternative
casino operator and equity part-
ner with the weight and exper-
tise of Harrah's, Mr D'Aguilar
questioned what would happen
to Cable Beach now, as the area
between the Wyndham and
Super Clubs Breezes was a
"wasteland" following the Nas-


the protracted three-year nego-
tiations that Baha Mar had to
undertake were the key factor
behind why the joint venture
partnership with Harrah s col-
lapsed, as they simply took too
long and the prevailing economic
climate changed.
"I think the Government of the
Bahamas, whether it was under
the Perry Christie or Hubert
Ingraham, made a fundamental
error in allowing this deal to slip
through our fingers at such a crit-
ical time," Mr D'Aguilar said.
"The bottom hine is: the Govern-
ment screwed it up by allowing a
deal of this size to slip through
its fingers."
He added: "It emphasises the
need for our government to speed
up its ability to make decisions
on such critical projects.
"What investors are looking for
is decisiveness and decisions.
When they bring a proposal, it's
all right if you say 'no', but they
want to know why so that they
can adjust and tweak their plans.
"What killed this deal, in my
opinion, is the agony of three
years of negotiation. Three years
elapsed, and the world changed.
The ability to borrow and the
debt markets changed.
"The Prime Minister's remarks
in the House were probably 5 per
cent of the reason why the deci-


sau Beach Hotel's closure.
With Baha Mar being the "best
deal right now", he encouraged
the Government to work to save
the Harrah's partnership for the
good of the whole Bahamas.
Baha Mar, meanwhile, yester-
day said there would be no down-
sizing in staffing levels at its exist-
ing Cable Beach Resorts the
Sheraton and the Wyndham as a
result of the Harrah's pull-out.
The company had also moved to
compensate for the withdrawal
of Harrah's personnel from the
Crystal Palace casino.
"We do not anticipate any
impact on current staffing levels,
beyond the normal attrition that
one expects in doing business.
The Sheraton Cable Beach
Resort and Wyndham Nassau
Resort and Crystal Palace Casino
are all currently operating at opti-
mum staffing levels. As in any
business venture, new hires will
be dependent on the needs of the
operation," Baha Mar said.
"Business is moving forward.
In the area of casino manage-
ment, for example, we have the
expertise among current staff to
keep operations moving forward.
We are pleased that a senior
Bahamian manager has taken
charge of gaming and has the sup-
port of a team of seasoned indus-
try professionals."


Baha Mar in 2008, is how the
deal's failure has been played out
in public.
Both the Izmirlian family, and
other existing and potential
investors in the Bahamas, will
have been both dismayed and
horiffied at how the Baha Mar
project has become a 'political
football', with confidential corre-
spondte e rel ted to ngotiatiaons


tabled in the House of Assembly.
"The way this deal panned out'
happened and came to this unfor-
tunate conclusion has all our
investors worried," Mr D'Aguilar
said. "One: If I write to the Gov-
ernment in confidence, is it going
to be read out in the House of
Assembly? Two: Do they want
to put themselves through the
agTn amaMearrcwentstaro It "

SBy ADRIAN SAINZ
AP Business Writer

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP)
- The cruise industry's outlook
is positive this year despite eco-
nomic pressures such as high
fuel costs, the weak dollar and
the struggling housing market,
leaders of the world's largest
cruise lines said Tuesday.
While not immune to a weak-
ening economy, the industry has
proven it is "recession resistant
because the all-inclusive nature
of its vacations provide value
for travelers who may be cut-
ting down on discretionary
spending, said Dan Hanrahan,
marketing committee chairman
for Cruise Lines International
Association.
Examples of the industry's
resilience are an average of 105.
percent occupancy for ships
belonging to association cruise
lines, and in the results of inter-
nal surveys of travel agents that
predicted this year's bookings
and sales would as good or bet-
ter than they were in 2007, Han-
rahan said.
"There's this belief amongst
people that they deserve their
'vacations," said Hanrahan, who
also is president and CEO of
Celebrity Cruises and Azamara
Cruises, units of Royal
Caribbean Cruises Ltd. "The
fact that cruising provides such
value is what's helped the cruise
industry weather this storm so
far.
In the past four years, the
industry, led by Carnival Corp.
and Royal Caribbean, has
fought through two active hur-


ricane seasons in the important
Caribbean sector, unflattering
media reports about cruise safe-
ty, a downturn in the housing
market that has hurt consumer
spending and rising fuel prices.
It has seen some significant
shifts, such as the increasing
popularity of European cruis-
es, the growing size of cruise
ships and the investment of pri-
vate equity firms in cruise oper-
ators such as Norwegian Cruise
Line.
Hanrahan said 12.6 million
passengers took cruises in 2007
with 10.3 million of those com-
mng from North America. The
industry expects an increase mn
worldwide cruise passengers this
year to 12.8 million people as
lines plan to add eight new ships
in 2008 and more than 35 new
vessels in the next four years.
Gerald Cahill, president and
CEO of Carnival Cruise Lmnes,
recognized that the dollar has
plummeted against other cur-
rencies such as the euro, U.S.
consumers are paying more at
the gas pump and groceries
stores and the stock market has
seen its share of tumult.
"In a weakening economy,
I'm not going to tell you that
cruising won't be affected: It
will be," Cahill said.
But he said the industry is
healthy enough to withstand
those challenges especially
when compared to land-based
vacations such as trips to theme
parks.
"When you compare cruise
pricing to comparable land-
based vacations, depending on
who does the math you'll find


generally that it is about 20 to
50 per cent cheaper for a cruise
vacation," Cahill said. "It's my
guess that cruise pricing will
once again turn out to be much
more resilient than many of the
doomsayers expect."
Stein Kruse, president and
CEO for Carnival's Holland
America Line, said lines are
working to lower fuel costs by

However, Mr Nutt said a
committee formed to draw


up these codes of practice
and regulations had recent-
ly modified the initial rec-
ommendations made to the


Government, and it was
likely the final versions
would soon be introduced
to the House of Assembly.


"There is a committee
that has put forward some
recommendations on codes
of practice and regula-


tions., My understanding is
that there have been some
modifications made to
what they have done," Mr
Nutt said.
"I would say that in a rel-
ative~ly short period of
time, we will see intro-
duced to the House of
Assembly the regulations
and codes of practice deal-
ing with the Health and
Safety at Work Act."
These regulations have to
be laid on the House of
^"senmbyonoor for the Act
Mr Nutt said: "The
Health and Safety at Work
Act is similar to the
Domestic Insurance' Act.
Until you have the regula-


tions dealing with the Act,
there is nothing to enforce.
There are no guidelines.
"It's caused a problem in
that we have a piece of leg-
islation that exists on our
books, but there is no
mechanism to ensure com-
pliance, as no one knows
what they are supposed to
be complying with.
"Until we have the reg-
ulations and codes of prac-
tice that say what the
details of the Act are, you
justthhave a shell legislation
"The fact it's on the
books means there's a
heightened awareness of
health and safety in the
workplace, though."

THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 2008, PAGE 17B


SBy MILT FREUDENHEIM
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

IN a step toward personal-
ized online medical informa-
tion, Aetna announced yes-
terday a new service that
draws upon a patient's own
medical history to help
answer questions about
symptoms and treatments.
The Aetna offering, called
SmartSource, has been tested
by the company's 35,000
employees. It will be offered
to employers that provide
worker health benefits
through Aetna, in a gradual
introduction across the coun-
try that will begin in August.
The company, which has
16.8 million enrollees, plans
to provide the service free to
its customers, saying it wants
to help people manage their
own health care. Aetna hopes
the service can help it recruit
and retamn employer-cus-
tomers worried about the
costs of care.
With the online offering, .
Aetna will be entering an
arena in which WebMD is
the leader for consumer med-
ic Idinformatio and w e e
Mayo Clinic and the Harvard
Medical School are also play-
ers.
The Web giants Google
and Microsoft are also laying
plans to let consumers link
electronic medical records
and online research.
But one of the biggest chal-
lenges in linking online
research to personal health
data has been a widespread
reluctance to share health
information that might fall
into the prveng hands or be. .
abiuse~d, affecting job oppot-
timities and~insurance premi- ~
unid. i


"The underlying challenge
is 'Do you trust the insur-
ance companies?"' said Mike
Davis, a health technology
analyst with the HIMSS Ana-
lytics consulting firm.
Addressing the trust issue,
Meg McCabe, Aetna's vice
president for online pro-
grams, said, "We make sure
the information is secured
and shared, based on the
member's purposes."
The information will not be
used to raise or lower premi-
ums or reject membership
applications. "That would not
be a good business decision,"
McCabe said. "We need to
develop a relationship with
Our members based on trust."
Search

Using a medical search
engine developed by Health-
line, a medical database soft-
ware developer, Aetna is
piecing together medical pro-
files based on records of each
insured member's illnesses
and diagnostic tests and that
also make assumptions about
their health concerns as
reflected in their search top-
icAndrea Rosenberg, a qual-
ity supervisor in an Aetna
call center in Phoenix,, said
she had used the system to
conduct research about her
five-year-old daughter Hay-
ley's ear infections and her
own allergy symptoms.
Like the.millions of work-
ing mothers a segment
who are major online
searchers for health inf~orma-
tion Rosenberg said she
had searched other health
Web sites but found that the
Aetna site provided informa-
tion that was "more specific"
to her situation. .
After looking it over, she


took Hayley to see the family
pediatrician,
As for her allergies, she
decided to stick with nonpre-
scription medicines from the
drugstore,
Health plan members have
been slow to add their infor-
mation to personal health
records offered by many
insurers, at least until a fami-
ly member gets sick.
But Aetna and some other
health insurers, including
UnitedHealth and WellPoint,
have made an end run
around this obstacle by creat-
ing rudimentary health pro-
files based on medical claims
data.
Aetna says it has gone fur-
ther by using the profile to
help tailor the SmartSource
searches.
"I don't know of anybody
else who is matching mem-
bers' claims information with
a search engine to help them
look for medical content,"
said Julie Snyder, a technolo-
gy and health care analyst at
Forrester Research.
But some industry experts
say that medical claims data
have limited utility, providing
ony "an eho of the e ents
according to Wes Richel, a
senior health care analyst at
the Gartner Group technolo-
gy consulting firm. "Also, at
any time, the information is
15 to 45 days old."
Richel said more useful
data- would eventually come
directly from the person's
doctors and hospital visits.
Google and Microsoft are
trying to get that information,
although he predicts it will
take "about two years" to
reach that goal.
McCabe said: "We are all
angling to reach sort of the
same goal to take all the


information that we know
about you as an individual


and link it to tools to make
sure you are as engaged as


possible in managing your
health care."'

end up in his hand on the fourth
round of the suit.
This in turn raised the prospect of
losing three spade tricks, and, as can
be seen from the diagram, that is
exactly what would have happened.
Nevertheless, Siniscalco found an
elegant solution to the problem.
He won the club lead wife
dummy's ace and led the jack of
hearts, covered by~ East with the
queen. Siniscalco ruffed with the

eih n s h paoe dmys te
of hearts.
When East covered with the king, ~
declarer ruffed, crossed to the gileen
of diamonds and led the heart eight.
This time East was unable to cover,'
whereupon Siniscalco discarded the
eight of clubs!Otf~h ti ut h ne
but could not stop declarer from
making the contract. With the clubs
now untangled, Siniscalco could win
any return by West, cash the Q-K of
clubs, then discard two spades on
dummy's 5-4 of clubs to finish with
11 tricks.
Note that if East had elected to
play low on either the jack or ten of
hearts when they were led from
dummy, declarer would have dis-
carded a club then and there. With
West on lead, no harm could come to
South at any stage, and 11 tricks thus
became a virtual certainty.

Life is a one way street no matter
which back alley or side street you
turn through, you cannot go back to
where you started from. Life is for-
ward motion. Thoreau was right -
you can't go home again.
Wherever you find yourself in con-
sciousness is home, and very often,
this mental state will not allow you to
return to an old condition. Stop feel-
ing guilty when you hear, "Well ch,
eh! You t'ink I don't know you born
in Kemp Rd.? I know where you
come from." You know too, but you
are not supposed to stay where you
start. Life is forward movement and
growth. If you are not moving for-
ward, you are dying. God wants the
best for you receive it with thanks!
Why are you feeling guilty about
claiming what is yours because most
people are too ignorant to claim
theirs? They are not unintelligent -
they simply do not know that they
have the same powers and abilities
that you do. This is your opportunity
to educate and help them. Kindly say
to them, "You can do it too." If they
are ready -to move forward, they will
ask how. If not, you have done your
job. Galatians 6:6 says, "Those who
are taught the word must share in all
good things with their teacher."
Sharing in all good things refers
not only to your material substance,
but also to sharing with others what
you have learned. Not everyone will
accept, and of those who do accept, it
won't be right away, for all must
carrj their own loads (Gal 6:5). Just
plant the seed, bless them and move
on.
It's time to do it at Lent. Work up
to Easter and raise again to the new
life.

MBy LAUREL HAMILTON
LIFE is cyclical. What worked well
then does not work well now.
It cannot.
Forget what was it does not work
any more. There was a time when
breast milk was the best thing for me.
That cycle has passed. If you have
ever had a broken arm, there was a
time when a cast was the best thing
for you. No more. You have to leave
where you are in order to arrive
where you are going. If you do not go
willingly, you will be pushed.
A gentleman was recently fired
from his job. He was pushed into
'The Gap'. He is experiencing an
opportunity to move forward,
upward and onward, but what is he
doing? Suing his former employer to
get his job back. He is not forgetting
what lies behind, or pressing forward.
He is trying to get out of 'The Gap',
but he is going the wrong way.
Looking backward keeps you
where you are, because you cannot
unlearn what you have already
learned. Philippians 3:13-14 gives the
best advice for such a situation: "But
this one thing I do: forgetting what
lies behind, and straining forward to
what lies ahead, I press on toward
the goal for the prize..."
You know how when people are
climbing very high they always say
don't look down. What happens
when they do? They become afraid
and they stop clitilbing. Lot's wife
looked back and she turned into a
pillar of salt. Have you ever seen a
pillar of salt move? Metaphysically
speaking, Lot's wife represents paral-
ysis. When we are looking back,
remembering the "good times" and
the "good old days"', we cannot move
forward we are stuck.
Crossing the gap is like climbing
that height or leaving Sodom. You
must look forward, toward where
you are going if you are to see clear-
ly enough to get there. Press on
toward the goal: keep your eye on
the prize. Where you came from is
nowhere near as important as where
you are going.
When people say to remember
where you came from, it doesn't.
mean that you are to keep returning
there (physically or in mind): it
means that you must remember the
lessons yiou learned to get you here.

'he their apy of tears'


HBy REV JAMES MOULTRIE
Jesus wept.
John 11:35

ASK anyone what is the shortest
verse in the Bible and they would
say, "Jesus wept". Many remember
this verse because of the impact it
has on their sensibilities. One of the
most surprising parts of the story of
the raising of Lazarus is the part
where Jesus breaks down and cries.
Why should this be so?
Perhaps it is the sight of a grown
man weeping in pubic that surprises
us. In general, men are socialized not
to show emotions in public so they
cry inside which can be very haz-
ardous to their health. A man is sup-
posed to be able to take it all in stoic
silence. Some people build a wall
behind which they hide what is frag-
ile in their lives: their deepest feel-
ings about life. Over the years men
were proud of their ability to conceal
their feelings. They were taught to
hide their anger, their sadness, and
even their joy.
C (twre

Our Bahamian culture is not com-
fortable with tears. Tears tend to be
viewed as a sign of weakness and
many are taught to suffer in silence.
But what can be so natural, right,
and healthy as tears when we lose a
loved one? Besides, tears have a
great therapeutic value, provided
they are genuine and not merely sen-
timental.
Jesus did not conceal his feelings.
The Gospel story todaynmakes this
very clear. He was moved with pity
in seeing the plight of an ordinary
family at the death of a loved one.
Jesus had wept before. He wept over
the city of Jerusalem because He saw


- only bad, but dangerous, and may
lead to serious emotional problems
later on.
The way to deal with grief is not to
run away from it, or pretend that it is
not there, but to face it and work
through it with honesty and love. We
are told by medical personnel that
while shed tears may be a bitter pill,
unshed tears may be even more bit-
ter and potentially much more haz-
ardous to our health,
Jesus understood the tremendous
grief the two sisters were experienc-
ing. So when they questioned why
He was so late in responding to their
distress call, He did not berate them,
but responded tenderly. He accom-
panied them to the grave site and
enroute shared deeply in their grief.
At the same time He challenged
them to see the bigger picture and to
believe: "I am the resurrection and
the life. Anyone who believes in me
will never die eternally. Do you
believe this?" Martha's response was
therapeutic and christologically pro-
found: "Yes Lord, I believe that you
are the Christ, the Son of God, the
One who was to come into the
world". Had Jesus not understood
the extent of their grief and not been
tender with them, she may not have
made such a profound profession of
faith,

Faith

Faith is our great ally in facing
death, sorrow and disappointment. It
does not mean that we have all the
answers. And it does not dispense us
from the painful work of grieving.
But it does add a vital element to our
grieving: the element of hope. We
grieve as people who believe that
death does not have the final word.
St Paul puts it this way, "We do not
mourn as people who have no hope".
Hope helps us to come to terms
with our own mortality. We see the
agony that weighs some people down
when they ponder the inevitability of
their own death. They try to banish
death from their thoughts. But one
thing is sure, death has the most
impressive statistic: one out of every
one person will die. The Bible
declares that "it is appointed unto
man once to die". We have to find a
way of thinking about death that
integrates it into life instead of
excluding or trying to avoid its cer-
tainty.
To become reconciled to death is a
very great grace. A deeper and more
human life results, as well as the
falling away of fear. In one of his
books, Byran McMahon tells how he
once visited an old man who was


close to death: "Are you afraid of
dying?" he asked the man. "I am
not", the man replied. "The almighty
God put a blanket around me com-
ing into the world and I don't
remember being born. He will put
another blanket around me gomng out
of it, and I won't remember dymng
but as little".

Lenten

The Lenten story reminds us that
by His death Jesus bore our grief and
carried our sorrows. He carried our
sins to the cross. When Jesus died
and rose again, He took away the
greatest burden of all, our sins and
our guilt. In Christ we find forgive-
ness and peace. All other issues of
life are under His control and so this
Lent let us let Him be God.
The Lenten Gospel helps us see
more clearly the cross. God looks
upon us from the cross as persons
without sin. The cross says to us in
the words of St Paul, "There is now
no condemnation for those who are
in Christ Jesus," (Romans 8:1). That
is so because the Christ who hung
from the cross died for you and me.
As Isaiah 53:5 says, "He was wound-
ed for our transgressions; He was
crushed for our mniquities; upon Him
was the chastisement that brought us
peace, and with His stripes we are
healed".
Even in our own suffering, pain
and tears at the death of a loved one,
we can rejoice because we know that
God is mn control. That is the grace
of suffering, the glory of the cross.

that it was headed for destruction.
And He wept again on the way to
the tomb of Lazarus.
There are times when a leader
shows sorrow in public, and it does
not diminish him/her in the eyes of
the people. Crying can be a sign of
confidence and great strength. In
fact, a man's vulnerability renders
him more attractive. This is true of
Jesus. The very fact that He broke
down tells us more about His heart-
felt sympathy for Martha and Mary,
and His solidarity with them, than a
thousand words. .
The story also shows the anguish
of Martha and Mary and the tender
response of Jesus to their tough
questioning. They were not afraid to
express their profound grief, though
they did so in sharply contrasting
ways. In spite of everything, Martha
somehow continues to function, forc-
ing herself to go on with her life.
Mary, on the other hand, retreats
into her shell; she would not even
leave her room. All of us who have
experienced death in our families
know that we must help the process
of healing and restoration. We must
try to help ourselves, and going into
our shell is not helpful in that
process. We must also allow others to
help us through our grief.
Grief

Grief is one of the strongest emo-
tions we are ever likely to experi-
ence. Some of us are embarrassed
about expressing our grief in public.
Believing that we are expected to
bear up, we suppress our grief, using
medication to assist us. But it is now
generally accepted that suppressing
our grief is not a good idea. It is not

'When the wine runs out'


SBy PASTOR WILBUR OUTTEN
Senior Pastor
Freeport Bible Church

USING John 2:1-11 as his text, the
familiar passage of scripture where
Jesus performed his first miracle
while attending a wedding in Cana of
Galilee by turning water into wine,
Pastor Wilbur Outten, of Freeport
Bible Church, posed several ques-
tions to married couples, "What do
you do when the 'wine' in your rela-
tionship runs out?" and "Who do `
you turn to?" after noting that in the
scriptures, wine usually symbolizes
joy, excitement and happiness.

In part I of this message, Pastor
Outten gave six potential problems
which may cause the 'wine' in rela-
tionships to run out:
1. Infatuation ends
2. Inability to handle baggage
tiv I~nability to communicate effec-
4. Criticism exceeds complithents
5. Attitude of unforgiveness
6. Listening to the wrong voices


I ( I )/ I ~


riage, however, think about h~ow
patient God has been with us.
Despite our sins, He is 'long suffer-
ing'. We must recognize that we must
exercise patience with our spouses
just as God does with us.

5. Principle of Effective
Communication
Communicating is more than just
talking. Most men find it difficult to
communicate at a deep level and this
frustrates the women mn their hives,
Women usually find it much easier to
communicate. In a marriage howev-
er, communication must be taken to
a deeper level for both parties to
really get to know each other. Some
couples have been married for years
and still don't really know each
other. Many people are afraid to
communicate on a deeper level
because trust may have been broken
prior, because of fears of rejection
etc. It is,r 1 ever liberating when

guard down, release your soul and
really get to know each other.

6. Principle of Submission
The bible speaks of three levels of
submission
-A. Submission to God: We should
not expect submission from anyone if
we are not willing to submit to God.
B. Mutual Submission: We must
submit to one another out of rever-
ence for Christ.
C. Submission to God's Order:
The bible says as the church is in
submission to God so should a wife
submit to her own husband. This
does not mean that one is better than
the other, but that God has ordained
the husband -to be the head of the
household, to look out for the best
interest of his family.

Juth a h n b henswi wshetit wa said

wi atsotr nuetdet said at a we
follow these principles, our latter
years will be our better years in mar-
riage. The longer you are together,
the more you shall have oneness; you
should be growing in love.

Christ accepted you, in order to
bring praise to God." (Romans 15:7
NIV) There must be total acceptance
by both parties. You must learn to
accept the person that you married
for who he or she is.
Many people spend the majority of
their marriage trying to change their
spouse, bbwever that is not your
responsibility. It was your decision to
marry that person. Even in cases
where there are areas that may
require change, we must leave them
to God.
We must also examine ourselves
and ask God to help us. He is the
one who transforms. Many people
reject their partners because they are
not like them. It is interesting that
the differences that attract some cou-
pe rto eac oho r ebpemee tri at ons
for the revival of a relationship;
accept in spite of faults.

2. Principle of Honour
We must honour our spouse.
Honour means to give preference to
or to attach a high value to the other
person. Spouses are gifts from God
therefore they should be valued.
Sometimes you may think that your
spouse does not deserve honour, but
remember, God values you in spite
of your faults. Don't compare your
spouse to others; be grateful for the
person you chose. When you honour
your spouse you raise your spouse's
value, your value and the value of
your marriage.

3. Principle of Forgiveness
We must learn to forgive others
just as Christ forgives us. In relation-
ships we often hurt each other some-
times knowingly and other times
unknowri gy.b lan uthoowo er We

must learri to say sorry, to admit
when we are wrong and ask forgive-
ness. Forgiveness is essential to
rekindle the flame in a relationship.
Sometimes the only thing that is
needed to restore the 'wine' in a
relationship is for one person to say
"Im sorry."

4. Principle of Patience
"Love is patient, love is kind. It

Strong relationships do not develop

Were you there?


SBy REV ANGELA BOSFIELD
PALACIOUS

THE well known hymn "Were you
there?" asks the questions: Were you
there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they nailed
him to the tree? Were you there
when they laid him in the tomb?
Were you there when He rose up
from the grave?
The obvious answer is "no" we
were not there. These are historical
events which took place over two
thousand years ago so how could we
possibly have been there?
Let us pause and reflect on some
possible responses other than "no" in
order to allow the questions to speak
to us today. For example, what if our
sins committed today were to make
us participants in the process of cru-
cifixion? What if these sins became
incorporated in the nails that were a
part of his excruciating pain then, in
anticipation of our redemption and
salvation enjoyed by us today.
In this way, we were there. The
grief we cause, the pain we continue
to perpetuate today is a part of the
torture he endured back then,
Another way of looking at the


whereabouts when there was min-
istry to be done:

1. Were you there when someone
was suffering in hospital and had no
visitor to offer comfort or consola-
tion?

2. Were you there when injustices
were taking place on your job or at
school and your said and did noth-
ing8

3. Were you next door when the
neighbours were abusing one anoth-
er violently or terrorizing the chil- -
dren cruelly and did not call the
proper authorities?

4. Were you there when the
HIV/AIDS patient needed prayer
and supplies?

5. Were you there when the
National Trust held a clean-up cam-
paign?

6. Were you there when the
police held a community meeting?
Were you there to support the Urban
Renewal's efforts or those of the
Department of Social Services?


7. Were you there to assist with
the Alpha programme in the prison,
with the youth, married couples or
persons in need of evangehizmg?

8. Were you there when financial
assistance was solicited for persons in
need of food, clothes, rent or utility
bills paid in order to show our grati-
tude for what God has done for you?

9. Were you there to worship reg-
ularly, pray and study the word daily,
using your gifts and talents to build
up the body?

10. Were you there where it
counted, when it counted, to be
counted on to do your part?

You cannot do all of the above,
but surely you can do some of them.
The first step is to make a call to
your priest or pastor, to any of the
local institutions and government
agencies for children or the elderly,
and ask how you may be of assis-
tance. Then, when we meet God face
to face, we will all be able to say
truthfully "Yes, Lord. Yes, I was
there."


question "Were you there?" is to
consider the fact that the church is
the body of Christ here on earth,
Everything that happens within the
body is of significance to the head.
On judgment day, it is only natural
to presume that we will have to
answer queries concerning our


sion of Jesus and I am hurt by the
things I see happening mn the world
around me. Often times I, like you,
am in need of answers and hearing
and reassurance. In the midst of the
Lenten season was when we heard of
all the useless murders, especially
child on child crime. I have been
meditating on the passion of Jesus all
this week and it is there that I was
reminded of the following, "through
his wounds we are healed".

Meditate

During the week ahead let's medi-
tate on the passion of Jesus, let it
become a source of healing for us.
Let's not waste this week. Spend this
week with Jesus meditating on his
passion. Let's attend church and par-
ticipate in the services of the Lord's
Supper on holy Thursday, the cele-
bration of the Lord's passion on
Good Friday and Easter vigil on holy
Saturday night.
The crowd which welcomed Jesus
with palms turned against him just as
quickly and abandoned Jesus. Peter
too turned from Jesus to save him-
self...
What are we doing for Jesus?


that puts on an impressive display for
a funeral or wedding or a baptism. It
is easy to be part of the crowd. But
in the account of the passion, the
crowd was not there for Jesus when
he needed them most. The crowd did
not go to the cross. The crowd aban-
doned Jesus. Only a few women and
John went to the cross. So much for
the crowd! -
In Luke's account of the last sup-
per, Peter said he would be willing to
go to prison with Jesus, even to
death with him (Luke 22:33). Yet a
few hours later that same evening he
denies Jesus (Luke 22:56-62). How
quickly he changed. How quickly he
turned when the pressure was on
him. He could make fine promises
during the last supper but when the
crunch came he decided to save his
skin.

React

How do we react? Do we cave in
to the pressure like Peter or do we
stand by Jesus like the women and
John and go right to the cross? Peter
heard the cock crowing after he
denied Jesus (Luke 22:60), but our
world is so addicted to sin that


maybe we don't even hear our con-
science crowing any more when we
sin.
How can we not hear the account
of Jesus' passion and not be moved
by it? Recently I heard of someone
asking a young person "What would
you think of someone who didn't cry
while watching Mel Gibson's movie
'The Passion of the Christ'?" The
young person responded, "He would
be evil". That young person was so
moved by watching the movie that
he could not understand why any-
body could not be moved by watch-
ing the film. The passion of Jesus
moves us. It moves us because Jesus
suffered,
The passion of Jesus moves us
because it is we who have inflicted
this suffering on Jesus. It was not just
the chief priests and it was not just
the cruel Roman soldiers who
brought this suffering on Jesus; it
was our sins that inflicted this suffer-
ing on Jesus. So then the account of
the passion of Jesus moves us to flee
from sin, to leave sin behind. The
passion of Jesus shows us up for
what we are sinners who have cru-
cified Jesus
I often times meditate on the pas-


WBy CLEMENT JOHNSON

CAN you believe it, on Sunday we
begin Holy Week when we celebrate
Palm Sunday or Passion Sunday. It's
hard to believe that we are in the
most sacred of all times in the
Church's calendar. The time when
we as Christians walk the road that
took Jesus to the cross, but ultimate-
ly led to our redemption.
In reflecting on this journey it
reminds us of the various emotions
that Jesus must have gone through.
Who would have thought that the
crowd which welcomed Jesus with
such enthusiasm during his entry into
Jerusalem would turn against him so
quickly within days and demand his
crucifixion and the release of
Barabbas who had been condemned
for murder?
Their welcome and shouts for
Jesus were superficial. Their support
for him was only skin deep. It was
easy to be part of a crowd that wel-
comed Jesus and it was easy to be
part of a crowd that condemned hing
to death. How many of that crowd
came to meet Jesus at church on
Sunday?
It is easy to be part of the crowd

'feels the need to love






people with HIVIAIDS'


ABy PETURA BURROWS

pubro str bnmW ta net
hieescalating vio-
a=en e ': a bul
cern in the
Bahamas, the Bahamas Christian
Council (BCC), through its newly
formed Commission on HIV/AIDS,
believes that the Church must come
to grips with the fact that the devas
tating disease kills more people glob-
ally than all other traumatic deaths
combined.
"It is a known fact that aside from
Africa, the Caribbean region is the
second highest for HIV/AIDS. And
with the amount of people in the
Bahamas who have died from and
are living with HIVIAIDS we have
to be concerned.
"The people living with
HIV/AIDS have been neglected or
made to feel unwanted. But the
Bahamas Christian Council feels the
need to love these people," Bishop
John Humes, president of BCC told
Tribune Religion.
Understanding that the church is
not immune to the impact of
HIV/AIDS, the BCC, through the
Caribbean Conference of Churches,
recently formed a Commission that
will work toward educating the
Christian community about
HIV/AIDS
The Commission was formed out
of a recent workshop, 'The Church
and AIDS Reducing its impact,
eradicating its Stigma', held at the
Church of God Convention Centre,
Joe Farrington Road. The confer-
ence was geared towards sensitizing
both the clergy and laity about the
scourge and impact that HIVIAIDS
has over the Bahamas.
"We know that many lives have
been destroyed by murder. but there
are more people dying from AIDS.
But we still have riot come to grips
with it. We also want to remove the
myths about how AIDS is transmit-
ted. A lot of people feel like they can


PG 22 Thursday, March 13, 2008


Bishop Humes noted that it is imper-
ative that female ministers get
involved since the recent trend in the
Bahamas indicates that more females
between the ages of 15 and 30 are
becoming infected with HIV/AIDS.
Looking at the disease on a nation-
al scale, cumulative to March 31, -
2007, a total of 11,025 people in the
Bahamas were infected with HIV. Of
those individuals, 5,582 were AIDS
cases, and 5,443 were non-AIDS
cases. Of the total, 7,145 are ahive
and 3,864 are dead. Just under 150
children have been infected with
HIV. Between 100 and 110 pregnant
women have been infected per year.
The HIV/AIDS Commission is
headed by Rev Tony Hanna, secre-
tary of BCC and presiding bishop of
the Church of God. Other commis-
sion members include: Rev Fred
Arnett, minister at Calvary Bible
Church and executive director at the
Christian Counselling Centre; Cecilia
Askew, director of the ALPHA
Programme, and coordinator of pas-
toral care in the Anglican Diocese;
Rev Dr Kenneth Huggins, president
emeritus of the Bahamas Turks &
Caicos Conference; Charles Lewis.
Zion Methodist Ministries; Dr
Curlean Fernander, Church of God:
and Rev Jessie Hinsey of Golden
Gates Native Baptist Church.
These ministers will work in col-
laboration with Matthew Brown
from BN+ (Being Positive), the US
Embassy, PAHO and the HIV/AIDS
Centre to help raise even greater
awareness about the disease.
Notwithstanding this latest effort.
Bishop Humes believes that in many
ways, persons are justified when thev
say that the BCC. and the modern


church, is not offering much practical
assistance when it comes to social
issues.
"All they see the church as is just a
voice that goes about objectmng to
this and that. But the church is more
than a voice. It is a force that can
transform people's lives and commu-
nities through social outreach pro-
grammes," Bishop Humes told
Tribune Religion.
"I do believe that if the church is
more proactive and if ministers are
actually concerned about what's
gomng on in the community, the peo-
ple will see that and people will start
to come back to church whether its
on the Sabbath or not," he said.
Participants at the recent work-
shop included Ainsley Reid from the
Caribbean Conference of Churches,
Rev Courtney Stewart for the Bible
Society of the West Indies; Rosa
Bain from the AIDS Centre; Fred
Arnett from the Christian
Counselling Centre and a representa-
tive from the AIDS Secretariat.
*As the Christian Church is promi-
nent in the Bahamas, it is imperative
that we position ourselves in leading
the way in working with others in
eradicating this stigma.
All ministers and officers of
churches, school chaplains and other
partners in the fight against
H-IV/AIDS ar-e invited to join us as

and eradicate the discrimination and

'catch it' in ways that AIDS isn't
even transmitted. So all of this is part
of our educational initiative," Bishop
Humes added.
The BCC maintains that stigmati-
zation and discrimination of people
living with HIV/AIDS is a violation
of human dignity. It also fuels further
infections as fear of the stigma, and
discrimination associated with HIV
and AIDS often undermines an indi-
vidual's willingness to seek out test-
ing, care and support.
Bishop Humes said that the
Commission will develop strategies,
programmes and policies to sensitize
churches about HIV/AIDS. There
will also be an ongoing, active part-
nership with schools, and other civic
Organisations that fight against
HIV/AIDS.
Helping to raise funds to aid the
fight is one of the commission's
objectives also.

include the youth from a cross section
of the community who will give their
input on the resolutions that the men
will draft during their conference.
A number of social and recreation-
al events are also planned which will
take the delegates to other parishes
throughout the island so as to maxi-
mize their exposure to what Grand
Bahama has to offer and to encourage
fellowship with the men from parishes
located in the more rural communi-
ties.
This will also give more churches an
opportunity to be a part of the festivi-
ties and the delegates can have a
greater impact on the island.
This 35th annual conference of the
Anglican Church Men will mark the
second tune it is being held in Grand
Bahama in recent years. In 2001, the
Pro-Cathedral of Christ the King,
downtown Freeport, played host to
this diocesan gathering. In the past,
conclaves such as these have focused
on leadership training and develop-
ment; the Anglican Heritage; stew-
ardship; and a relational approach to
wellness in men with respect to faith,
family, fitness and finances.
The objectives of the Anglican
Church Men are:
1. To give greater glory to God
through worship, fellowship, study,
service and giving.
2. Through self-disciplined lives
and daily witness, enable others to see
Christ in them.
3. To assist the clergy and parish by
sharing their time, talent and treasure.

SMembership in the ACM is opened
to all Anglican men of 18 years and
older, who are participating, commu-
nicant members of any Anglican
church in the diocese. Currently serv-
ing as president of the organisation is
Mr Kurth Wallace, of St George's
Parish in New Providence and this

THE Diocesan Council of the
Anglican Church Men (ACM) has
selected Grand Bahama as the site for
this year's conference, April 3-6, with
the Eric L Sam Centre at the Church
of the Ascension serving as the official
venue.
Traditionally, this conclave is held
on the weekend nearest to March 31,
which is the Feast of St Joseph of
Nazareth, the Patron Saint of the
organisation. As the Easter season
arrives early this- year and the usual
date falls in the middle of Holy Week,
these alternate dates were selected.
The theme for this event is
'Restoration and Hope in the Midst of
Decay', which focuses on the current
state of affairs in our country as it
relates to crime and social degrada-
tion.
The text chosen for this conference
is Philemon 1:25. Speakers will
include Archbishop Drexel Gomez;
Tommy Turnquest, minister of
National Security & Immigration; Mr
Howard Newbold, district superin-
tendent of Education for the
Northwest New Providence district,
among others.
The secondary purpose of this gath-
ering will be to formulate, develop
and, subsequently, implement practi-
cal programmes within the organisa-
tion that will effectively respond to
the heightened social decay. This
group of men will seek to take the
national lead in arresting the lack of
discipline, respect, conflict resolution
skills, and effective communication,
ohc g ematiall too commonplace
By taking the holistic approach to
this vexing and escalating problem,
the ACM will seek to aid in the
restoration of hope and the soundness
of mind, body and spirit. To achieve
this, a number of group discussions
and "brain-storming" sessions will be
interspersed between the addresses

men and young women will be set free.

violence, crime, rebellion, anger, premature deaths.
We want to cry out to God on their behalf for release
from this experience so that they can experience
God's purpose for their lives, a manifestation of their
destiny, good success, for them to be saved, deliv-
