2005, and February, 2006, was
discharged in October last year
following a high profile trial in a

MEMBERS of the financial
sector and the opposition
expressed their confidence
Wednesday in the Albany
development and its ability to
shield the Bahamas from the
brunt of an expected slowdown
in the United States' economy.
James Smith, former minis-
ter of state for finance, told The
Tribune that because the $1.3
billion development is geared
towards the second-home own-
ership market as opposed to
being resort centred, its impact
on the Bahamian economy is
likely to be more substantial
than that of the highly touted
Baha Mar deal.
"This is significantly differ-
ent from Baha Mar in character,
in that this is more housing

Delta 'indicates ongoing


commitment to Bahamas'


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
DESPITE cutting back on
flights in the US due to rising oil
costs, Delta airlines has indicated
an ongoing commitment to ser-
vicing the Bahamas, a tourism
official said yesterday.
In fact, the airline has increased
the frequency and variety of ser-
vice it provides to the Bahamas
over the last year, Tyrone
Sawyer, director of airlift devel-
opment for the ministry, said.
This positive assessment comes
as USA Today reports that Delta
is "pulling out of" an increasing
number of markets as "soaring
fuel costs force it to reevaluate
its route network." Small US


cities have been hit especially
hard, according to the newspa-
per.
Alongside Islip, New York,
Bellingham, Washington and
Fargo, North Dakota, the carrier
announced that it will stop fly-
ing to Atlantic City, New Jersey
on April 30 and Meridian, Mis-
sissippi on June 16.
Mr Sawyer said: "We have
every indication from Delta that
they're commitment to our des-
tination remains firm and strong."
He added that the ministry is in
"ongoing communication" with
its key airline partners.
Mr Sawyer admitted however
that although the ministry is
"confident of (the airline's) depth
of commitment" this does not
mean that the ministry can be

certain what Delta is going to do
in terms of its service to the
Bahamas.
Elsewhere, the airline has
switched from larger to smaller
jets in an effort to diminish fuel
costs.
The greater frequency of Delta
flights coming in to this country
from the US in the last year came
partly as a result of the airline
sending more flights out of its
"central hub" in Atlanta. Accord-
ing to Mr Sawyer, this change is
also giving "more people from
more places" the chance to visit
the Bahamas.
The airline flew its first direct
flights from the United States to
Georgetown, Exuma and North
Eleuthera last June and those
routes were scheduled to be
flown four times a week. Addi-
tionally, Delta increased its ser-
vices to Grand Bahama, Mr
Sawyer said.
Meanwhile, he noted that with
airlines basing any decision as to
whether flights to the Bahamas
will be maintained on "overall
consumer demand", the ministry
is playing its' part to keep that
demand up.
Asked what percentage of the
country's visitor fly in on Delta,
Mr Sawyer said he did not have
the figures at hand, but it is a
"substantial amount of our capac-
ity."
The major carrier's commit-
ment to the Bahamas as a desti-
nation comes on the heels of less
than encouraging news for its
Bahamas-based staff, 60 of whom
were unexpectedly advised in
early January that they are to be
laid off. The company cited a
need to cut its operational costs
as the reason behind the staff
reduction.
At the end of February the
staff were dealt another
blow, with Tribune Business
reporting that many were
severely displeased with the sev-
erance package they had been
offered.
Delta's regional manager for
the Caribbean said however that
the company believes it is "offer-
ing a generous package" to its
employees.

Agatha Archer, senior educa-
tion officer responsible for the
pre-school unit in the Ministry of
Education, presented Minister of
Education Carl Bethel with
copies of the curriculum for pre-
schools in the Bahamas.
In making the official presen-
tation, Mrs Archer noted that in
November 2007, the Pre-School
Unit revised the final draft of the
document and thereafter 3,000
copies where printed and will be
distributed to the early childhood
care community.
Mr Bethel thanked Mrs Archer
and the officers on her team for
the work they put into designing
the curriculum.
He said it serves as a reminder
of the importance of pre-school
education noting that accord-
ing to current research, what a
child learns in the first five years
of life is critical to future devel-
opment.
The minister said that the cur-
riculum guide will set the foun-
dation for a well regulated pre-
school educational system and
will support the early childhood
care legislation that will going to
parliament very soon.
He said it will also establish
standards of training for all early
childhood care providers in the
country.

Stock exchange
attracts new
broker member

FG Capital Markets, a sub-
sidiarv of life and health insurer
FamGuard Corporation, was yes-
terday approved as both a trading
member and sponsor member of
the Bahamas International Secu-
rities Exchange (BISX).
Keith Davies, BISX's chief
executive, confirming Tribune
Business's exclusive revelation
earlier this week that the
exchange was about to add anoth-
er broker/dealer member, said:
"The addition of FG Capital Mar-
kets as a trading member to the
BISX market is a welcome devel-
opment. as it brings an additional
avenue for domestic investors to
access securities listed and traded
on the exchange.
"We believe that offering vari-
ety and choice to the Bahamian
investing public is crucial to
ensuring the continued growth
and development of the market.
Therefore, it is encouraging when
an entity such as FG Capital Mar-
kets. backed by a solid institution
such as FamGuard. enters the
market."
Mr Davies said FamGuard had
a strong history in supporting the
Bahamian capital markets, point-
ing out that the company was one
of the original equities to lis on
the exchange on its first trading
day on May 11,2000.
"At BISX, we see this new
entrant into the market as an
endorsement of our stewardship
of the capital markets and our
vision for its impact on the lives
and well being of Bahamians,"
Mr Davies said.
Norbert Boissiere, Fam-
Guard's chairman, said that since
the company's inception, "Fam-
Guard and Family Guardian have
been committed to-supporting
Bahamians in their effort to build
a better life, and this new initia-
tive is very much in keeping with
that objective".
Patricia Hermanns, president
of FamGuard and FG Capital
Marktis, slated the latter's launch
as a broker/dealer and sponsor
nemiber was part of a broader
strategy of FamGuard in expand-
ing its thrust into the wealth accu-
inmulation and pension markets.
"On a basic level, it will expand
the ability of Bahamians to access
the market, and we believe this
will positively impact the dynam-
ics of the purchase and sale of
shircs," she added.
Through its BISX sponsor
membership, FG Capital Markets
can also deliver mutual funds for
listing directly to BISX.
Mr Davies said the ability of
FG Markets to trade directly in
the market, and also bring mutu-
al funds directly to BISX, allows
them to serve as a 'one-stop shop'
tor retail and institutional clients,
and will increase competition in
the Bahamian capital markets.

Bahamian hotel occupancy
levels are expected to be fairly
strong this Easter weekend,
with several resorts yesterday
reporting high expected num-
bers.
Peter Webster, general man-
ager of the British Colonial
Hilton, said the resort was cur-
rently experiencing hotel occu-
pancy levels around the 90 per
cent range.
He added that as the holiday
week progresses, occupancy
numbers are expected to drop
at the lowest to 70 per cent.
Mr Webster said occupancy
figures are down by about 10
per cent from where they were
last year, which was probably
attributable to the trends and
challenges that faced the
Bahamian hotel industry last
year.
He said he suspected that the
trend would be reflected in
some way by other hotels, save

Mural contest

aims to cut

school graffiti

THE police have has joined
forces with officials of the
Department of Education, the
National Art Gallery of the
Bahamas, business owners and
residents, to develop a strategy
to help keep graffiti off the walls
of two primary schools in the
Wulff Road area with the
,launch of a mural competition.
There will be four categories
children ages nine to 11: 12
to 14; 15 to 17 and a category
for persons 18 and older.
Participants will be required
to submit their designs to school
officials no later than Friday,
April 25.
The designs must be on paper
no larger than 11x17 and will
be judged on originality, cre-
ativity, presentation and best
depiction of the theme: "Liv-
able neighborhoods are clean,
healthy, safe and crime free."
The winning designs are expect-
ed to be selected within three
days of the deadline of entry.
The competition is being
spearheaded by the Neighbor-
hood Community Policing Ini-
tiative Unit of the Northeast-
ern Division and was developed
after school board officials at
the Claridge and Uriah McPhee
Primary Schools had to paint
more than 400 feet of wall, four
times within a relatively short
span, using 125 gallons of paint.

"A lot of

seems, are
vacationing
closer to home
in Europe."

Alfred Fountain
the ones on Paradise Island.
Ed Fields, Kerzner Interna-
tional's vice-president of exter-
nal affairs. yesterday confirmed
to Tribune Business that the
company's Paradise Island
resorts Atlantis and the One &
Only Ocean Club were full.".
Additionally. Alfred Fountain,
fronldesk manager at the Best
Western Bay View Suites, said
they anticipate a 98 per cent
occupancy level this weekend.
This was similar to where the
company wVas last year, although
the mix of travellers appeared
to be changing.


Mr Fountain said that last
year the property saw more
Americans visitors, and this
year it appears that more of
their guests are coming from
Canada. He added that they
have seen less Europeans,
something he attributes to the
lack of European direct airlift.
"A lot of Europeans, it
seems, are vacationing closer to
home in Europe," he said.
Mr Fountain said that while
the property does not specifi-
cally cater to Spring Breakers,
they have seen a significant
number, though he pointed out
that it was still early to tell.
Last year, US tourist arrivals,
to the Bahamas were down by
14 per cent for the four months
to April 2007, the peak of the
tourism season.

FNM's new scrutiny of finances


IN PRESENTING his government's first
budget in his third non-consecutive term in
office last year, Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham announced that in future a mid-year
budget statement would be brought to the
House for scrutiny. This mini-budget would
be presented in either January or February of
each fiscal year.
He told the House that this would demon-
strate his government's transparency and
accountability in an orderly government."
This is a business-like way of managing
organizations and so it was a surprise when
the PLP objected. Even small businesses do
regular financial checks throughout the year
to measure how well or badly their business
is doing. No business can operate success-
fully unless someone is monitoring the com-
pany's performance to determine how it is
measuring up to the yardstick set for it. Gov-
ernment is big business. And the only way it
can be managed is if it is treated as a business
and its finances are monitored and reported
on regularly.
Usually this is only done at budget time -
once a year when the focus is on budgeting
for projects for the following fiscal year. Mis-
spent money during the year is often buried
in this exercise.
Mr Ingraham said that this statement will
set out the economic background of the fiscal
* year and the first six-month performance for
that year. At that time if additional expendi-
ture is needed the supplementary estimates
will be submitted, examined and a decision
made about releasing the funds.
"In the course of discussion of these sup-
plementary estimates," he said, the House
"will be able to determine which agencies of
government are implementing orderly bud-
geting procedures and those which are not."
This, he said, "would ensure that all agen-
cies remain within budget. It also will be pos-
sible to determine what are really unfore-
seen circumstances that give rise to addi-
tional expenditure and therefore justify
expenditure adjustments, and what do not
qualify as unforeseen."
As he pointed out this will get rid of the
former practice of issuing contingency war-
rants throughout the year followed by an
interminable delay in submitting the supple-
mentary appropriations validating the war-
rants. This meant that money was being
released and spent without legal authorisa-

tion. Mr Ingraham said that the outcome is
usually that the supplementary appropria-
tions are delayed until the end of the fiscal
year and buried with the other budgetary
documentation. "In the interests of trans-
parency, accountability and orderly budgeting
this procedure will be eliminated," he said. In
future his government planned to give a
financial accounting of its stewardship every
six months.
This is just a sound, orderly way of doing
business. But the PLP hollered. They called it
a smokescreenn" an "optical illusion", "illu-
sionary" and "financial cheating." The truth
is with more time to look at the books, the
PLP were found to be wanting in many areas
of expenditure during their term in office.
In too many instances, the Bahamian tax-
payer was not getting value for money. The
exercise that parliament has just gone through
and the gross mismanagement discovered
should make future ministers think twice
before following in the PLP's footsteps.
For example at this time Attorney General
Claire Hepburn applied for $150,000 as sup-
plemental funding for her department.
She outlined what this extra money would
be used for. She said that $50,000 would be
used to transport persons, this included wit-
nesses, within the Bahamas to court. Anoth-
er $50,000 was to be used as subsistence and
accommodation for the travellers and the
final $50,000 was to defray the cost of getting
rid of mould discovered in the Attorney
General's office after the start of the fiscal
year.
And then she made an interesting obser-
vation.
"This sum ($150,000)," she said. "is to be
contrasted with the $1,984,544 which was
requested by the previous administration."
We think the public is still entitled to know
how the PLP administration spent more than
a million dollars in the Attorney General's
office. After all this is the people's taxes.
No wonder the PLP objected to the scruti-
ny.
This innovation of fiscal reporting will
prove to be one of the best decisions made by
the FNM. It certainly will make administra-
tors more conscious of how they spend the
people's money. Every six months the spot-
light will be on them, and, if they misstep,
they will be found out.


Debate on





mid-term






budget is





'overkill'


EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE recent debate on the
mid-term budget tabled in
Parliament is the third time
Parliament has debated vari-
ous elements of this budget in
the nine last months.
While I welcome trans-
parency and accountability in
government, all of the infor-
mation revealed during the
debate could be easily gleaned
from the Central Bank's
Quarterly Digest.
Further, there is a view that
those critical national issues
such as crime, the fear of
crime, the state of and
prospects for the economy
should occupy much of the
Parliament's time as legisla-
tors vigorously pursue solu-
tions to these national issues.
On the issue of transparen-
cy, there still remains many
questions surrounding the
behaviour of this government.
In light of the much hyped
Crown Agent audit report and
continuous reference to the
Financial Administration and
Audit Act of 1988, why did
the FNM award $23.5 million
in no-bid negotiated contracts
for the repair of public
schools?
A proper accounting of the
monies, the scope of works,
and whether the people
received value for money were
never publicly disclosed.
There still remain clouds


and suspicion, cynicism and
reasonable doubt regarding
the Government's expressed
intent and general handling of
the Urban Renewal workers
in Grand Bahama, the sus-
pended and cancelled con-
tracts totalling some $90 mil-
lion, termination of duly hired
workers, and the hiring of con-
sultants at huge salaries.
Perhaps more time could be
spent clarifying these issues to
the satisfaction of the general
public.
I wish to comment on an
incredible statement attrib-
uted to the Prime Minister
during the budget debate con-
cerning this much talked
about surplus: "On the basis
of the data for the first six
months of the 2007/2008 fis-
cal year, that is for the period
July to December 2007,
expenditure was some $75 mil-
lion less than forecast, where-
as revenue was only $53 mil-
lion less than forecast," he
said.
"Thus, there is a surplus of
revenue of expenditure
emerging of $22 million."
This is akin to Bahamians
giving up their homes, cars,
and withdrawing their children
from private schools in order
to save money.
Since this is not a viable


option for individuals, it can-
not be a viable option for run-
ning a country as it is not sus-
tainable.
The FNM must stop their
grandstanding and start gov-
erning as nobody is impressed.
The record will show that
the FNM inherited a strong
economy that enjoyed over
$700 million in foreign direct
investment in 2006 (the high-
est ever) and they managed
to reverse this economic
momentum, downgrade our
international credit rating,
hurt our reputation by holding
foreign investors hostage, and
putting thousands of Bahami-
ans out of work.
This downward spiral was
done in a record ten months.
The social consequences are
immeasurable as crime is out
of control, the fear of crime is
rising, and the country limps
toward the status of, failed
state.
The Bahamas needs a gov-
ernment with the vision and
political will to tackle these
challenges facing our country,
not one preoccupied with pub-
lic relations and numerical
shuffling.
Debating a budget three
times in nine months while
Rome is burning is a case of
overkill.

Christopher. I commend
Leandra for her courage and
perseverance.
She spoke for many of us in
her remarks quoted from your
newspaper "relying on assur-
ances by the medical staff"
and not being knowledgeable
enough at the time to take a
different course.
It's hard enough losing a
loved one, through illness or
an accident, but when this is
caused by naively trusting the
medical staff in whose care
they have been placed, it is
harder because you can't help


feeling complicit in their
death.
In our society we generally
enjoy the benefits of astute
and miraculous results from
the medical world; faith in this
leaves us totally vulnerable
and at the mercy of a hospital,
or a doctor, who, for whatever
reason, does not honour the
Hippocratic oath.

THE TRIBUNE THURSDAY, MARCT^1^^^BI^^SH2028,AE


TOWN HALL MEETING I


FNM govt urged to

ignore religious

opposition and

legalise gambling

THE FNM government must reject any "religious and political-
ly based narrow-mindedness" and legalise gambling in the Bahamas,
secondary school teacher and Tribune columnist Adrian Gibson told
a town hall meeting discussing the issue, hosted by More 94 FM.
He said that if there is any doubt about what the government's
response should be to calls for the legalisation of gambling, the ques-
tion should be put to the people by a referendum.
Mr Gibson said he is certain Bahamians would overwhelmingly
vote in favour of legalising it.
"Surely, the church is well aware of the saying that 'the voice of
the people is the voice of God'.
"The government should hastily pass legislation to amend the
gaming laws as it relates to Bahamians gambling locally and there-
by officially legalise the Bahamas' favourite pastime gambling,"
Mr Gibson said.
The educator pointed out that the "numbers" business in the
Bahamas has mushroomed
and become a 'nationwide
phenomenon, which has
evolved into a high-tech "A national lottery
operation that employs hun-
dreds of Bahamians and is and taxation of

ings as even pastors are spec- shortfalls and even
ulated to place bets online
and send out their assistants fund college
to these gambling houses to cholarships and
select their chosen numbers," scola shp s n
he said. pre-kindergarten
Mr Gibson said the Lot-
teries and Gaming Act is dis- prograniIes.CS
criminatory and unconstitu-
tional as it excludes Bahami-
ans from gambling locally.
This Act, he said, is Adrian Gibson
inequitable and sets an intol-
erable double standard.
"The Lotteries and Gaming Act chapter 387 is an invalid Act
because it allows for a form of discrimination against the citizens of
the Bahamas as one group of people is prohibited from gambling,
while another group is permitted to. This is an insult to our democ-
racy," the columnist said.
He said that it would be in government's interest to join Jamaica
and Barbados and launch a national, lottery that could generate sup-
plementary funds for infrastructural and human development.
"A national lottery and taxation of gaming houses can make
up budget shortfalls and even fund college scholarships and pre-
kinder ;irten programmes.
"If a national lottery is to be established, it must be overseen by
reputable, non-partisan private citizens who sit on a well vetted
board. Furthermore, there must be frequent audits that should be
published every quarter," he said.
Mr Gibson went on to accuse the church of "cherry picking" what
issues it objects to, in an effort to appear to be doing its job, while
a ,riad of pressing issues continue to confront Bahamian society
but are not touched on by pastors.
"Had the Christian Council been an organisation that bar none
- had been serious about being the nation's moral gatekeepers,
they would have spoken out against the ethical lapses and scan-
dalous escapades of high-ranking public officials." he said.


PM TO JOIN OTHER CARIBBEAN LEADERS AT WASHINGTON TALKS



Ingraham to meet Bush




to discuss regional issues


* By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham will meet with US
President George Bush in
Washington, DC, today along
with two other Caribbean lead-
ers to discuss a number of
regional issues.
The nation's chief is sched-
uled to talk with the US presi-
dent as well as Barbados Prime
Minister David Thompson and
Belize Prime Minister Dean
Barrow.
A statement issued by the
White House Press Secretary
said the Bahamas, Barbados
and Belize "are long-standing
friends of the United States and
countries with whom we share
deep social and familial ties as
well as the values of democracy
and respect for human rights."
A broad number of issues are
slated for discussion today,
including strengthening democ-
racy in the region, increasing
social and trade ties, co-oper-
ating on security and crime, and
improving the lives of the
region's citizens.
The statement notes that the
Caribbean leaders have all been
democratically elected within
the past year.
This meeting comes after a
recent CARICOM Inter-ses-
sional Meeting in Nassau where
regional leaders discussed crime
and security, cost of living mat-
ters and the EPA, among other
issues.
The prime minister last met
with President Bush in June,
2007 for a CARICOM leaders
meeting. At the time, President
Bush reportedly committed to
reactivate the Caribbean Basin
Initiative, under which CARI-
COM states are allowed duty-
free access for certain goods.
Prior to his meeting with the
president. Prime Minister Ingra-
ham will meet with Luis Alber-
to Moreno, president of the
Inter-American Development
Bank, at the 1DB in Washing-
ton.


The prime minister last met
with Mr Moreno at the end of a
five-year plan between the
Bahamas and the IDB in
December, 2007 when it was
announced the government was
"in talks" with the IDB to
resume the New Providence
Road Improvement Project.
Mr Moreno reportedly vis-
ited the prime minister to talk
about further development of
the Bahamas in areas of infra-
structure, health and education.
"The IDB has been most

with the electrification of the

potable water to many of our


the New Providence Road
Improvement Project."
The road works project
should begin in May, 2008, Min-
ister of Works Earl Deveaux
told Tribune Business earlier in
the week.
The IDB was founded in 1959
as a partnership between 19
Latin American countries and
the United States. The
Bahamas became a member in
1977.
It is the main source of multi-
lateral financing for economic,
social and institutional devel-
opment in the Latin American
and Caribbean region.
The prime minister is sched-
uled to return to the Bahamas
on Friday.

her love for cooking deep-

when she worked in the
kitchen at Four Seasons at
Emerald Bay.
"It was a good experi-
ence," she said. "They
taught me a lot of things
that I could have pursued

An onion cake was good
enough to secure second
place for Ms Bullard.
"It didn't really go as I
planned, but I still contin-
ued and made something
out of it," she said.
Ms Bullard, who has not
been cooking for long, said
she is now considering cook-
ing as a career.
"Initially, I didn't, but this
kind of made me think
about it and consider it," she
said.
Her mother, Dominique
Bullard, said it is a career
she is now interested in see-
ing her daughter pursue.
"She just started cooking
this year," Mrs Bullard said.
"She never used to,0.cop.,
but-I am going to support'
her wherever she wants' to
go in this culinary field."

Some fishermen's


treatment of sea


turtles 'in violation


of penal code'


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
kherig@tribunemedia.net
THE treatment of sea turtles
by some Bahamian fishermen is
in violation of the country's
penal code and should be "con-
signed to the dark ages", execu-
tive director of the Humane
Society Kevin Degenhard said
yesterday.
Following reports of a large
sea turtle being mistreated at the
Montagu Ramp last Sunday, Mr
Degenhard vehemently spoke
out against the brutal "butcher-
ing" of sea turtles in the
Bahamas.
He explained that turtles have
been caught for food through-
out the Caribbean region for a
very long time, but that this is
not a reason for continuing the
inhumane treatment of the crea-
tures.
"Historically it might be
argued turtle meat was needed to
augment the diet of island popu-
lations but in this day and age
there is an infinite variety of both
traditional Bahamian fair and
modem convenience food avail-
able so the inhumane capture,
inhumane killing, and conserva-
tion of turtles are the priorities
which must be addressed," he
said.
On Tuesday, vice-president of
the Animals Require Kindness
organisation Debbie Krakowski
claimed that cruelty against sea
turtles is becoming more and

more frequent, especially at the
Montagu fish market.
"The horrible spectacle of ven-
dors abusing these amazing crea-
tures by dragging them along
roads in the full sight of tourists
and local people alike is repug-
nant to anyone with an ounce of
sensitivity. Hacking these tor-
mented animals from their shells
and dissecting their writhing,
helpless bodies while fully con-
scious is an abonminati6n which
should be cosigned to the dark
ages," Dr Degenhard said yes-
tetday.
He added that there is no oth-
er food animal in the Bahamas
which is killed and butchered in
such "a barbaric manner", but
that far too many people seem to
think it is an acceptable way for


a modern and caring society to
treat animals which feel pain and
suffer stress.
"Not only is this method of
killing turtles extremely cruel it
constitutes animal cruelty under
Sections 223 of the Penal Code
of the Commonwealth of the
Bahamas. Anyone who abuses
turtles in this way should be
prosecuted.
"The public displays of abuse
which these animals are subject-
ed to are abhorrent to onlookers
and visitors who witness such
cruelty leave this country with a
very dim view of how animals
are treated here. It was Mahatma
Ghandi who said 'You can judge
a country, and its moral progress,
by the way it treats its animals',"
he said.


Minister opens the BTVI's new

Student Success Learning Centre


MINISTER of Education Carl Bethel, offi-
cially opened the Bahamas Technical and Voca-
tional Institute's new, state-of-the-art Student
Success Learning Centre.
The Student Success Learning Centre (SSLC)
is being billed as an important milestone in
BTVI's transformation'from a "second chance",
short term training institution to a viable, valu-
able, post secondary option.
"The SSLC centre will act as an important
appendage to the bridge programme which will
enable adults and recent secondary school grad-
uates, who may not have been successful in tra-
ditional academic areas, to improve their
numerical, literacy and workforce skills," said
BTVI in a release.
Mr Bethel extended thanks to D Kent


Sharpies, president of Daytona Beach Commu-
nity College, and the Daytona Beach'Commu-
nity College delegation, for their generous donia-
tion of 60 computers to the Student Success
Learning Centre.
The minister encouraged the Bahamian busi-
ness community to support the Bahamas Tech-
nical and Vocational Institute as the institution
embarks upon its journey to become a fully
accredited, autonomous post secondary insti-
tution.
Mr Bethel also encouraged all Bahamians to
embrace life-long learning and to take advan-
tage of the instructional tools and resources
available at BTVI to develop their potential
and to pursue their career and educational
goals.

Urban Renewal
re-launches Fort
Charlotte Centre
THE Fort Charlotte Urban
Renewal Livable Neighbour-
hood Project Centre is re-
launching its community's
band as well as its tutoring ser-
vices and other after-school-
activities.
Patricia Walker, an assistant
at the centre, said teachers
from C C Sweeting Junior
High School and St John's Col-
lege will volunteer as tutors to
students who are preparing for
BJC and BGCSE examina-
tions.
Ms Walker explained that
the centre is also trying'to find
time in the afternoon when a
community pastor can counsel
students who need it, while
centre manager Jeff Brown
explained that the centre want-
ed to start from scratch before
re-commencing any initiatives
following the shake-up of the
Urban Renewal programme
after the FNM came to office
last year.
During a soft re-opening cer-
emony at the centre on Mon-
day, March 17, Mr Brown
explained that over the past
two weeks, workers and volun-
teers attached to the Urban
Renewal Livable Neighbour-
hood project went to homes in
the Fort Charlotte area to talk
with parents and ask them to
fill out informational forms.
Mr Brown said the objective
was to find out what each child
needs from the programme.
"Kids in each household are
different," he explained. "We
found out that some are father-
less, some are motherless,
some live with their grandpar-
ents and we found out that
conditions in some homes are
not adequate.
"All of these things have an
affect on the kids, and to make
this area livable or the commu-
nity livable, we have to deal
with people who live in the
area especially kids, because
they are going affect us now or
later."
Mr Brown added that centre
workers want to ensure that
the children have the basic
essentials necessary for them
to feel comfortable attending
the programme's activities.
"We want to make sure that
cleanliness starts here," the
centre manager said. "There-
fore, the centre will provide the
basics including soap, tooth-
brush, toothpaste, lotion, and
clothing anything that would
make sure the children are not
ashamed," he said.
"I experienced that before
when I was a teacher; most of
the kids never participated in
anything because they were
not supported they did not
have a father, they did not
have a mother they did not
have anybody to bring the
resources they need to come to
these programmes."
Alexandra Archer, a mem-
ber of the steering committee,
stressed that no one in the
community will be turned
away.
Coordinator for Urban
Renewal in New Providence
Ella Lewis said Fort Charlotte
has a lot to offer and that great
things are expected with Urban
Renewal and the community
working together.
"We will work together to
make Fort Charlotte benefit
from everything Urban
Renewal has to give and
Urban Renewal will work to
make this community better,
healthier, cleaner, stronger,
safer, following the objectives
of the newly re-launched
Urban Renewal programme,"
she said.

They appealed to More 94 to

Antonio, adding that the victims
have "not vet received one penny

Thousands to remain in trust


Yesterday, Mr Cleare admit-
ted that his schedule has meant
that he has not been able to deal
with the matter as swiftly as lithe
victims may have liked.,
The victims say that the delay
has led some people who donated
money after an on-air appeal to
query what happened to their
cash.
The significant sum was raised
last December when listeners
made donations to help the vic-
tims' plight after talk show host
Ortland Bodie Jnr made a plea
on air for public help. It was
intended as a Christmas gesture
of goodwill.
Yesterday, More 94 president
and station manager Gaylon
Saunders said that, in the wake
of the drive, the radio station had
received calls from "at least" six


people, including spokesman for
the group, Lincoln Bain, claim-
ing to represent the victims and
the lawyers were now trying to
decide "who to give the money
to."
Mrs Antonio, however, said
that she believes enough time has
now elapsed. "Victims of this
tragedy are really suffering.
Because the government has
done nothing to help us so far,
we need all the assistance we can
get."
Asked to respond to the vic-
tim's concerns, Mr Saunders said:
"As a gesture of goodwill we
decided to assist them and the
Bahamian public responded in a
good way. We've done what we
could do in that regard, but if they

The victims, who received
severe injuries when two mail-
boats collided four years ago,
have yet to receive compensation
from the government or boat
owners, despite an inquiry finding
all three entities negligent.
Now they are involved in a
sponsorship scheme in the hope
that the public will help them to
survive.
Sponsorship papers are being
distributed to local firms by vic-
tims Cedric Hart and Tenneson
Leslie, both of whom were
severely injured in the collision.
Mr Hart, who held down four
jobs before the crash, is now
reduced to hobbling around on
crutches.
He told The Tribune: "Things
are very hard for all of us. We
are hoping the Bahamian people
will come to our help."
A march is also planned in the
hope that public awareness can
be raised. "What we need is
someone capable of leading the
march, someone who can give us
a high profile," he said.


FROM page one

Former Minister of State for
Finance and former Governor
of the Central Bank of the
Bahamas James Smith told The
Tribune yesterday that the low-
ering of the rates will make
money lending easier and will
also give the American con-
sumer more confidence in the
economy.
All this, he said, could result
in Americans having more
funds to spend on "traditional"
pursuits such as vacations to the
Bahamas.
In the fight against a crisis of
confidence and a deep reces-
sion, the Federal Reserve the
US' central banking system -
on Tuesday lowered its key
short-term interest rate by
three-quarters of a percentage
point to 2.25 percent.
The sixth rate cut in just as
many months, this move is
aimed at spurring on banks,
credit card issuers and other
financial institutions to lower
their rates as well.
Bahamian tourism officials
have been warning that the
country's industry could see a


US interest rates
significant drop-off in arrival
numbers as some of the
Bahamas' core markets in the
US have been hardest hit by the
continuing credit crunch.
Director General of Tourism
Vernice Walkine earlier this
year said that the Bahamas will
have to repackage itself at a
lower price level in order to still
attract those US visitors who
now have less disposable
income due to the downturn in
the US economy.
However, this latest mone-
tary movement in the US, Mr
Smith said yesterday, could
actually benefit the Bahamas'
tourism industry.
The Federal Reserve's low-
ering of rates, he said, in the
best case scenario can help bring
about growth of the US econo-
my or can at least stop the slide
into recession.
Mr Smith also explained that
the Federal Reserve's decision
does not affect the Bahamas'
interest rates, as the country is
shielded from international rate
changes by the Bahamas
Exchange Control mechanism.


MP calls for Laing to resign


FROM page one

troversy over the alleged lowering of a customs
duty for his sister-in-law continues to escalate.
Mr Frank Smith claims that what Mr Laing did
was "illegal." Mr Laing insists that it was not.
Yesterday, a local newspaper reported com-
ments from the former Comptroller of Customs.
who described Mr Laing's interference in chang-
ing the customs rate classification for the Mona
Vie nutrition drink to the lower rate group as
"unusual" and "improper."
In fact, the former comptroller, Mr John Rolle
alleged that this reclassification was "illegal."
Yesterday, Mr Smith defended Mr Rolle's
comments on the matter, accusing Mr Laing of
intervening in the matter to give his sister-in-law
an advantage.
"We need full, frank disclosure from the Min-
ister. He has been given numerous opportunities
to come clean. He has adopted a position that he
will not comment publicly on the matter any
further, which I believe is a travesty and is not in
keeping with the FNM's trust agenda, and their
truth agenda, or their accountability agenda.
"They are now running from the words they
exposed during the campaign. They are now
running from that and taking cover," he said. Mr
Smith claimed that everytime Minister Laing
spoke on this subject the Prime Minister absent-
ed himself from the House of Assembly. "I won-
der why that is?" he asked.
Mr Laing has already categorically denied any
attempt to contravene Customs Duty by lower-


ing the tariff on the Mona Vie juice drink for his
sister-in-law in September last year.
Reversing the rate from 45 per cent to the
previously charged rate of 10 per cent, Mr Laing
said he was correcting a wrong and reinstating
the previous rate until it could be properly
changed during the Budget process not mid-
year.
However, Mr Smith refuses to accept this
explanation and is now calling on the Prime
Minister to publicly comment on the matter.
"At this particular juncture, the Minister is
challenged to do the right thing in the face of all
the evidence. The correct response would have
been to leave it alone when contacted and refer
the complainant his relative to the appro-
priate authority and the appeals process. That is
what ought to have happened. But that didn't
happen," he said.
Instead, Mr Smith said, what happened is only
what he can describe as "blatant nepotism."
"He has to do what the constitution and the
mandate upon which they were elected upon, he
must do that. And he must do what is convention
in circumstances such as these in our Parlia-
mentary system. And he knows what that is," he
said.
If the Minister of State fails to step down from
his post Mr Smith said, then he cannot profess to
be a part of a "trust" or "truth" agenda.
"You have to tell the truth to be trusted. Don't
just say you trust me," he said.
Mr Smith promised that the PLP will continue
with this matter when the House of Assembly
sits on March 27.

'Agriculture and marine resources expo a success'

-Government committed to increasing level of appreciation

rfor Bahamian grown and processed food, says Cartwright


AGRICULTURE and Marine Resources Minister Larry Cartwright (cen-
tre), BAIC executive chairman Edison Key (left) and Permanent Sec-
retary Coleen Nottage.


* By Gladstone Thurston
THE government is commit-
ted to "increasing the level of
appreciation" for Bahamian
grown and processed food, said
Minister of Agriculture and
Marine Resources Larry
Cartwright.
"We are committed to the
development and sustainabili-
ty of agriculture and agri-busi-
ness in the Bahamas," he told
the awards ceremony for the
Agricultural, Marine Resources
and Agri-business Exposition.
Hosted by Mr Cartwright's


ministry and the Bahamas Agri-
cultural and Industrial Corpo-
ration (BAIC), the expo, held
last November, was "a real indi-
cation of my ministry's focus
and steadfast commitment to
the agriculture and agri-busi-
ness sector," he said.
One hundred and fifteen par-
ticipants from throughout the
islands showcased innovative
agricultural strategies and best
practices, and gave demonstra-
tions in greenhouse techniques,


hydroponics and hybridisation.
Apprentices from 20 schools
along with 15 professional chefs
showcased their culinary skills.
More than 200 of the best
bred farm animals from
throughout the islands were on
display.
BAIC Executive Chairman
Edison M Key, MP for South
Abaco, emphasised the need for
food security.
"As an independent nation,
food security is an objective we


must pursue as a matter of
national priority," he said. "If
we don't take care of ourselves,
who is going to?
"Feeding ourselves is by far
too important a task to be left to
exporters out of Florida and/or
elsewhere. Remember the
predicament we found ourselves
in the last time the United
States closed its borders?
"At BAIC we are accelerat-
ing our efforts to inspire as
many more Bahamians as pos-
sible, to become involved in
business, especially in food pro-
duction," said Mr Key.
The cost of hosting the event
at the Gladstone Road Agri-
culture Centre (GRAC) was
$136,014.
Funding was secured from
the budgets of the ministry and
BAIC, Mr Cartwright told
those gathered at the GRAC
site.
Financial support and partic-
ipation also came from the Min-
istry of Education, the Inter-
American Institute for Co-oper-
ation in Agriculture, Walpole
Feed (USA), and Executive
Motors (Nassau).
"The Department of Agri-
culture is committed to the
development of a thriving agri-
culture industry in the
Bahamas," said Mr Cartwright,
MP for Long Island and Ragged
Island.
"Let us work together to
make agriculture and agri-busi-
ness a strong pillar within the
.-,_ahamian economy."

Plans for fifth annual car
show on Grand Bahama


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT The New Car
Federation of Grand Bahama
announced plans for its 5th annual
car show at RND Plaza on March
29.
Sarah Kirkby of Barefoot Mar-
keting said that it is one of Grand
Bahama's most successful events
and that residents look forward to it
every year.
She said the federation has
changed the date for the event,
returning to the original March
date.
The three major new car deal-
erships on the island are expected
to showcase several brands of their
2008 lines as well as provide special
offers on various 2007 lines between
10am and 5pm in the RND parking
lot.
Holiday Auto specialises in
Volkswagons, Freeport Jet Wash
specialises in Fords and Range
Rovers, and Quality Auto spe-
cialises in Hyundai and Honda
vehicles.
"As we continue to strive to
make the car show a permanent
fixture in Grand Bahama, we want-
ed to return to our March date,
which was changed last year due
to the elections," said Whitfield
Bain, Quality Auto sales manager.
"March is traditionally a good
time for car sales and we have had
great responses from our clients
about the event. They like the one-
stop shop approach we offer at
these events banks, insurance, car
services and lots of brand new vehi-
cles, all in one place."
The new car federation, which
comprises of Holiday Auto, Quali-


ty Auto and Freeport Jet Wash,
said that the continuation of event
over the last four years is an indi-
cation of their belief in the Grand
Bahama market.
Larry Albury, Freeport Jet Wash
general manager, said vendors
enjoy the opportunity to meet with
their clients in an informal atmos-
phere.
Mr Albury said the other com-
panies that will be participating are:
Commonwealth Bank, Scotia Bank,
Royal Bank of Canada, First
Caribbean International Bank;
insurers including JS Johnson, Col-
ina General, Insurance Manage-
ment and Trinity Insurance, as well
as Lanelle Phillips Real Estate,
which will be promoting land and
home sales.
Kimo Pratt, Holiday Auto fleet
manager, said she is very excited
about the car show. "This is a great
opportunity for me to meet all the
companies Holiday works with in
the car business as well as many
local residents who seem to flock to
this event. We had a great show-
ing last year and we plan to show-
case lots of our newest lines."
Returning Banker Lyndon
Davis, senior assistant manager at
Commonwealth Bank, said they
are looking forward to the event.
"Last year's went so well. We
will be offering 8.5 per cent financ-
ing rates with 84 month term rates
and first payments due in May. We
will also offer a Mastercard and
Sun Card with each approved loan,
plus special gifts for our buyers
too," he said.
Car show organizers are encour-
aging residents to take advantage of
the opportunity to meet with vari-
ous dealers, bankers, and insurance
representatives.

Ms Lewis told the court
that she did not know Her-
man Roker, who is being
challenged by Ms Bridgewa-
ter. She said that she visit-
ed the Marco City address
he was registered at both in
November 2006 and in
March 2007. On both occa-
sions, she said that Haitians
who reside there did not
know Mr Roker. After the
election she said the same
Haitians were at the address.
The witness also testified
that she was told by Ezra
Knowles that Mr Roker had
been living in the United
States for three years.
In cross-examination by
Fred Smith, Mr Laing's lead
attorney, Ms Lewis acknowl-
edged that she did not know
Mr Roker nor what he
looked like.
Mr Smith then produced
the June 13, 2007 affidavit
Ms Lewis swore to. In the
document the witness said
that she was familiar with
the voters listed therein,
including Mr Roker. Mr
Smith then asked the wit-
ness which of the differing
statements were true.. To this
she said, both are.
Ms Lewis explained that
she was familiar only with
Mr Roker by name. She
added that during the cam-
paign, she was sure she was
familiar with him by face, as
she thought she saw him
before around Grand
Bahama in her travels.
When challenged on this
statement by Mr Smith, the
witness was unable to say
when she saw him, but earli-
er she had testified that she
did not know him, nor how
he looked.
As Mr Smith pressed the
witness for an explanation
on her differing statements,
she said'that she had no
explanation. When Mr
Smith then suggested to her
that she signed the docu-
ment regardless of the truth-
fulness of it, Ms Lewis said
"yes."
The witness was sent out
of the court room by the Jus-
tices while the matter wa
discussed with couns
both sides.
Senior Justice Anit
, 1


Election court
witness claims
she 'signed sworn
affidavit regardless
of document's truth'

told Mr Smith that there is a
difference between a witness
signing what was put before
her and deliberately lying to
the court. She asked Mr
Smith what he was suggest-
ing about the witness' testi-
mony.
Mr Smith said he thinks
the witness would say any-
thing she had to in order to
support the petitioner's case.
And, he suggested that the
document was put before
her to sign.
Mr Smith told the court,
that as a result of the wit-
ness' admission, he intends
to move that the court not
accept her evidence on Mr
Roker and two other voter's
in question, Antoinette and
Carol Richardson.
She knew the affidavit was
untrue and signed it, said Mr
Smith.
Earlier in the sitting, Mr
Smith announced that Mr
Laing has dropped his chal-
lenges against three more
voters. This may reduce the
number of challenged vot-
ers on Mr Laing's list to 43.
This number may be fur-
ther reduced, however.
Mr Smith produced a list
of the voters Mr Laing has
dropped to the court at the
end of yesterday's sitting,
and he said that he will pro-
vide an official count of the
number of voters Mr Laing
is challenging when Election
Court resumes on Tuesday.
Philip "Brave" Davis, Ms
Bridgewater's lead attorney,
also called Kirkwood Fergu-
son and Clifford Brice, both
of whom are being chal-
lenged by Mr Laing, to the
stand yesterday.
Both men maintained that
they resided in Marco City
during the relevant six-
month period before the last
election.

unrest at the power company. The agreement covers 130 workers
who are members of the CEWU.
During a press conference held at the union's headquarters on
Yellow Pine Street, Mr Knowles said the union took into consid-
eration the lackluster economy of Grand Bahama and decided to
compromise on its position regarding salary increases.
BE1MSU, which represents the supervisory and engineering
staff, has not yet reached an agreement with management.
According to Mr Knowles, CEWU was able to negotiate
improved benefits, including increases in the saving plan for work-
ers and a reduction in the vesting period in the pension plan from
15 years to 10 years.
The contract in principle was ratified by members last night and
both parties are now in the process of fine tuning the contract
with legal counsel before a date is set for the official signing.
"Sometimes in negotiations, you can't get everything...and we
were able to work with the company during this period and to
not go overboard on our salary treatment.
"And considering the state of the economy we had to make
some compromise, but we got a pretty decent contract," he said.
Mr Knowles thanked the Minister of Labour for his assistance in
the matter, union members, and the community for its patience and
the support.
Labour Minister Dion Foulkes, who acted as mediator by inter-
vening, was instrumental in bringing the parties back to the nego-
tiation table following weeks of union demonstrations in Freeport.
Mr Knowles wanted the public to know that their decision to
compromise on salary had no relevance to the recent electricity rate
increases by the company on February 28.
"Electricity rates were increased in 2006 during such a deplorable
state of recession on this island, and for them to come back two
years later when this community is still struggling economically is
inconsiderate," he said.
He noted that the union still has some unfinished business
regarding the exit package for workers, and compensation to for-

mer employees.
The exit package (Memorandum of Understanding), which is sep-
arate and apart from contractual agreement, was expected to be
signed simultaneously with the contract. It would allow workers the
option of leaving the company and accepting a settlement package.
Mr Knowles said that a reasonable formula still has to be worked
out. He said there will have to be further discussions and negotia-
tion with the Minister of Labour and the company on that issue.
The union is also seeking compensation for 22 former employees
who were members of the bargaining union during April 1,2005 to
March 18, 2008.
"The company is saying that they are not legally binding to
compensate those persons, however we are looking into that
because it is a common industry practice in the Bahamas," said Mr
Knowles.
Mr Knowles noted that the former employees of BTC, BEC, and
other companies were compensated. He feels that GBPC should
also compensate the former workers.
The union president said that they are seeking some resolution
in the Christly Smith matter. Smith, a senior linesman, who died last
year, was injured on the job.
Mr Knowles said Minister Foulkes had held discussions with
the union and company regarding the matter without any positive
results.
"The company has made no effort regarding the Christly Smith
matter, and the family is still in bereavement.
It's just a sad situation. The union will continue to be a thorn in
the company's flesh until resolution is reached in the matter," he
said.

representatives of the late
Edward St George's estate
met with Fleming Family
& Partners, the prospective
Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA) purchaser, in London
yesterday, The Tribune can reveal, a
development that creates a small ray of

and one of the St George estate's execu-

Although the outcome of the meeting


was unclear, what may have been critical -
as far as Fleming is concerned is who

Government's


$100m bond to


launch 'in days'


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE Gov-
ernment's $100
million US
currency bond
issue will be
launched in
international
markets "with-
in days" if its
advisers have
not already
done so, the
minister of state for finance
said yesterday, adding that
moving now would enable bet-
ter interest rate terms to be
obtained than if the issue were
delayed.
Zhivargo Laing said that
despite the global financial
market turbulence, the Gov-
ernment and its advisers Roy-
al Bank of Canada Capital
Markets and FirstCaribbean -
felt that delaying the $100 mil-
lion issue's launch would
expose it to further potential
"uncertainty" if the credit/debt
market crunch grew worse.
When asked whether the
Government's placement
advisers would have a better
chance of fully placing the
issue with international finan-
cial institutions, and obtain bet-
ter interest rate terms, if its


Minister says going now
will obtain better interest
rate and debt servicing
costs, as delay would mean
'playing with uncertainty'
and further deterioration
launch was delayed until mar-
kets were calmer, Mr Laing
replied: "That's not the advice
we have.
"This is as good a time to do
it as any to do it, because the
uncertainty going forward
might have the impact you are
saying.
"Conditions might not be
favourable moving forward
because of conditions in the
financial markets, so it's bet-
ter to go with the terms we
have prevailing now."
When asked when the Gov-
ernment's placement agents
would launch the issue, Mr
Laing replied: "I think that if
they have not done so, fairly
soon. If they haven't done so
already, it will be within days."
Due to the liquidity/credit
crunch sparked initially by the

EU trade deal will not 'drag'

Bahamas into CSME's web


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE Bahamas will not be
"dragged into" the CARI-
COM Single Market & Econ-
omy (CSME) if it signs the
Economic Partnership Agree-
ment with the European
Union (EU), although the min-
ister of state for finance said
yesterday that this nation
would have to offer Caribbean
states the same trade benefits
as those given to European
countries.
Zhivargo Laing confirmed
the Bahamas would have to
offer the same trade benefits to
all EPA signatories, Caribbean
and European, and "vice ver-
sa". This meant that all


Caribbean states would have
to offer market access to
Bahamian companies and busi-
nessmen on the same terms as
those offered to their Euro-
pean counterparts.
However, the minister cau-
tioned that signing on to the
EPA was not the same as join-
ing the CSME, and nor would
the treaty with Europe drag
the Bahamas into a CSME-
type arrangement through the
'back door'.
Mr Laing said the EPA was
a trade agreement, facilitating
the movement of goods and
services between the signato-
ries, while the CSME had
"much broader implications"
because it incorporated politi-
cal and social objectives, .


While the EPA would usher
in "open trade relationships"
in the Caribbean region, giv-
en that the Bahamas conduct-
ed minimal trade with both the
region and Europe, and vice
versa, its impact on this
nation's economy and trading
patterns was likely to be mini-
mal.
"That's not likely to change
significantly," Mr Laing said.
"We have made it very clear
we are not participating in the
CSME, so there is nothing in
the suggestion that an EPA
will drag us in."
Mr Laing said the Govern-
ment was "making good

Fisheries 'enormous





fears' caused EPA





commitment


0 By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE Government would not
have "pressed so hard" to com-
mit to joining the Caribbean's
'market access' offer on the
Economic Partnership Agree-
ment (EPA) had it not been for
the fisheries industry's "enor-
mous concerns", the minister of
state for finance revealed.
Zhivargo Laing acknowl-
edged at a Town Meeting that
the sector's fears that losing
duty-free market access to the
European Union (EU), which
could have seen tariffs as high
as 15 per cent imposed on $60
million of Bahamian crawfish
exports per annum, played a
pivotal role in the Governmen-
t's decision.
"If it were not for the enor-
mous concerns of the fisheries
people, we may not have
pressed so hard to conclude the
EPA by December 31," Mr
Laing acknowledged.
That was just for the goods
trade or 'market access' aspect
of the EPA. Bahamian
exporters, such as the fisheries
industries, Polymers Interna-
tional and Bacardi, had
expressed concerns that a loss of
duty-free access for their Euro-
pean exports, and the subse-
quent tariff imposition, would
increase the price of their prod-
ucts and make them uncompet-
itive in comparison to rivals.
As a result, all three would
have lost market share, rev-
enues and profits, something
that would also have impacted
Bahamian foreign currency,,
earnings and, potentially+ hun-..
dreds of jobs and households.
Philip Simon, the Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce's exec-
utive director, told the same
Town Meeting that the fisheries
industry and other exporters
had communicated to his organ-
isation that duty-free access to
the EU, and avoidance of Most
Favoured Nation (MFN) tariffs,


was "an absolute necessity".
Mr Simon added that this
could also have cost the
Bahamas its favourable $20 mil-
lion-plus per annum trade sur-
plus with the EU, the most
recent trade statistics for 2005
showing that this nation export-
ed some $66 million worth of
goods to Europe, and in return
imported just $44 million.
Had the Bahamas lost its
duty-free access by not signing
the EPA, Mr Simon added:
"The loss to the Bahamas
would be the loss of the value of
that trade, incomes to people
in the fisheries and other indus-
tries, and market access beyond
the scope of what is required
under the World Trade Organ-
isation."
As to whether the Bahamian
fisheries industry would have
been able to find alternative
markets to the EU,.Mr Simon
said the sector's processors and
wholesalers had revealed that
they would not be able to
obtain comparable prices to
Europe.
"The stakeholders assured us
that the prices they would
obtain would not be equal to
the prices obtained in France
and elsewhere," the Chamber's

executive director said.
The Government's decision
to commit to CARIFORUM's
EPA market access offer, and
subsequently announce that it
intends to submit a services and
investments offer and sign the
agreement in June, represents
something of a lobbying tri-
umph for the Chamber and
Bahamian exporters.
When the FNM administra-
tion came to office in May 2007,
it was initially reluctant to sign
the EPA, fearing that the
Bahamas had more to lose than
gain by doing so.
The policy was then to focus
first on the Bahamas' accession
process for membership in the
WTO, and the development of
an all-encompassing trade poli-
cy to deal with all such issues
facing this nation, even if it
meant missing the December
31, 2007, deadline for complet-
ing the EPA negotiations.
Mr Laing, meanwhile, also
acknowledged that the
Bahamas' WTO application had
"not progressed as hoped". This
nation is still updating its Mem-
orandum of Trade regime to
replace the document that was
first submitted in 20ol, under
the initial Ingraham adminis-
tration.
Little progress on the WTO
application was made under the
Christie government, and Mr
Lai~g said: "All the prepara-
tion is being made to effect that
application. We expect that in
the rext three to five years, the
Bahamas' membership applica-
tion to the WTO will be com-
plete." ,
When it came tio tairff
amendments required by the
EPA, Mr Laing said the
Bahamas "got a win-win situa-
tion in this respect", as CARI-
FORUM nations have 25 years
to liberalise import tariffs in
86.9 per cent of economic sec-
tors. The other 13.1 per cent of
tariff lines will be protected
from the EPA's provisions.
With 51 per cent of EUL
exports to the Bahamas and
Caribbean currently entering
duty-free, Mr L aing said that in
the first three years after the
EPA's signing, only a further
1.3 per cent of tariff lines would
have to be liberalised. This
involved the removal of Stamp
Taxes and other fees and
charges.
After five years, another 3.2


per cent of tariff lines would
have to be liberalised; after 10
years, 8.3 per cent; after 15
years, 21.7 per cent; and the bal-
ance after 20-25 years.
"We will be at that point [86.9
per cent of tariff lines liber-
alised] sooner [than other
Caribbean countries], because
we have less adjustments to
make," Mr Laing said.
"On the goods side, it's not a
huge leap of faith to make
adjustments on the tariff side
of things."
Both he and Mr Simon
admitted that consultation with
the private sector and Bahami-
an public on the EPA by the
Government was not all that it
might have been.

FROM page 1B
ing Zhivargo Laing, the minis-
ter of state for finance, in the
election court case and was not
at the London meeting.
This is likely to have been
viewed as positive for Flem-
ing, given that it is understood
to see Mr Smith as the main
obstacle in resolving both the
GBPA ownership dispute with
Sir Jack Hayward's family trust
and its efforts to buy both side


out and acquire the GBPA and
its Port Group Ltd affiliate.
Fleming already has an
agreement in principle to
acquire the 50 per cent stake
(although this is disputed) held
by the Hayward family trust
for $100 million. Justice Anita
Allen, though, stayed the lift-
ing of the injunction the St
George estate obtained block-
ing this sale when she put both
parties into mediation.
Meanwhile, The Tribune


understands that if successful,
Fleming's plans for Freeport
entail turning it into the 'Dubai
of the Western Hemisphere',
or at least the Caribbean.
Exploiting the Hawksbill
Creek Agreement, they want
to emulate Dubai's free trade
zone with a similar set-up in
Freeport, with a slightly more
relaxed Immigration policy
when it came to work permits
for essential expatriate per-
sonnel. Sources were quick to
point out that it would not
become an 'Open Sesame' for
foreigners.
On financial services, Flem-
ing would look to explore its
contacts and rich banking his-
tory in Asia and the Middle
East, turning Freeport into a
hub/gateway for capital and
investors in those regions to
enter the Western Hemi-
sphere. This could also pro-
duce spin-offs for the private
wealth management industry
in Nassau.
It is understood that Fleming
and its Freeport-based consul-
tants, Global Fulfillment Ser-
vices, the advisory company
set by by-now Scotiabank man-
aging director Barry Malcolm
(he is not involved in the busi-
ness day-to-day), have hired
others to conduct economic
impact and manpower needs
assessments if Fleming is to
bring its plans to fruition.
On another note, The Tri-
bune understands that the
unnamed buyer of the former
Uniroyal plant in Freeport
plans to convert it into a
biodiesel processing and pro-
duction facility if the deal goes
through, and all necessary
approvals are received from
the Government.

cial institutions have become
increasingly wary of lending to
one another, instead conserv-
ing capital to bolster and fill
holes on their balance sheets.
They are also fearful that lend-
ing counterparties may default.
This has led to financial insti-
tutions recalibrating their, risk
assessments of borrowers,
pushing these upwards. Apart
from access to debt capital, the
increase in perceived risk has
also pushed the interest rates
attached to debt instruments -
such as bank loans and bonds -
higher, as investors seek
greater compensation for the
chance they are taking.
When it comes to the Gov-
ernment's $100 million bond
issue, the implication is that
investors will seek a higher
interest rate attached to these
bonds than would have other-
wise been the case prior to the
credit/debt crunch.
While the Bahamas is still
likely to be seen as a relatively
good risk, given its sovereign
credit rating and the Govern-
ment never having defaulted
on its debt, if a higher interest
rate is sought, this would also
increase the administration's
debt servicing costs.
It would mean, for instance,
that more money would have
to be allocated in the Budget
to debt servicing as opposed
to infrastructure projects and
other need areas.
Mr Laing, though, said the
interest rates attached to this
$100 million bond issue would
not be impacted by the credit
crunch, indicating they would
not be markedly different from
previous issue.
He was unable to state what
the interest rate payable to
investors would be as he was
out of office when contacted
by The Tribune during a break
in the election court case.
"The terms that we have
anticipated remain in place
today, so we are working with
the present conditions," Mr


The Scotiabank Rate Booster Deposit
Combines the higher interest rates of a longer term
investment with the flexibility of a short term deposit.

Life. Money. Balance both:


Laing said.
"Going forward, with what is
happening in the marketplace,
one does not know if things
will worsen, and that would
make the rate higher and less
attractive. Why play with the
uncertainty?"
Apart from the Govern-
ment's borrowings, and the
ability of major resort investors
in the Bahamas to access debt
capital for their projects, other
developments that may be
impacted by the global turmoil
could include infrastructure
works such as the $400 million
upgrade to Lynden Pindling
International Airport (LPIA).
While Nassau Airport


Development Company
(NAD) executives indicated to
The Tribune last week that
they would require another
four to five months to get the
financing in place, infrastruc-
ture projects such as the air-
port upgrade are likely to
remain relatively attractive for
lenders.
This is because Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport has
valuable fixed assets that can
be used as collateral, plus guar-
anteed revenue streams with
which to service the debt such
as the passenger user facility
fee.
Still, NAD, too, may find the
cost of capital has increased.

Two more licences




for rising realtor


A BAHAMAS Realty
executive who entered the
real estate profession four
years ago as a junior sales
associate has climbed almost
every rung in the sector's lad-
der, obtaining two more
licences in recent weeks.
Carlyle Campbell has
obtained licenses as an
appraiser and as a broker with
a certified residential special-
ist (CRS) designation.
The broker designation is
earned and granted by the
Bahamas Real Estate Associ-
ation (BREA) to those who
have been licensed as a sales
associate for a minimum of
three years, have taken three
CRS courses, the BRI and
have sold more than $1 mil-
lion in property over a three-
year period.
"Carlyle Campbell's dedica-
tion and enthusiasm are high-
ly commendable, and we are
extremely pleased that he is
part of the Bahamas Realty
family," said Larry Roberts,
the company's chief execu-
tive. "We want to encourage
him in any way we can."
The firm's managing part-


ner, Mario Carey, added:
"Carlyle shows the same per-
sistence on the ground as he
did in the pool as a swimmer."
Mr Carey, his former swim
team coach, said: "He's never
afraid to jump in but he's
always prepared. And then he
goes the extta mile to drive
himself to be a lap ahead of
the competition. He's out to
win and that's a great attitude
to have, especially when it's
combined, like Carlyle's is,
with a desire not just to close
a deal, but to satisfy the
client."
In December, Mr Campbell
took the firm's first-ever Most
Exclusives Listings Award,
presented by Bahamas Realty
to the agent or broker who
secures the most exclusive
listings during the year.
An exclusive listing allows
agents to focus marketing
energy and dollars on offering
properties, and guarantees at
least a portion of the fee,
whether they co-broke with
another agency or sell it them-
selves.
'But Mr Campbell also
wanted to understand more


about what drives value so he
shadowed experienced
appraisers such as Bahamas
Realty president Robin
Brownrigg and appraiser
Anton Rodrigues, both of
whose appraisals are accepted
by every bank on the island
and the Government.
"We at Bahamas Realty
cannot say enough good
things about Carlyle," says Mr
Brownrigg.
"He has proven himself
again and again to be a dedi-
cated, hard-working young
man who is enthusiastic about
his career. Now with his full
broker's and appraiser's
licenses, there is nowhere for
this excellent young man to go
but up. We are all very
proud."
Mr Campbell said: "I am so
grateful to my colleagues at
Bahamas Realty for allowing
me to gain the experience to
accomplish my goals.
"They took the.time to
show me what it takes to be
an efficient and hard-working
broker and appraiser, and for
that I cannot thank them
enough."

THE TRIBUNE


Bluewater talks BTC privatise


FROM page 1B

the committee's chairman, hinted
heavily to The Tribune yesterday that
they would be exploring what poten-
tial rival offers for BTC existed, indi-
cating that they would be talking to
more than one interested party.
"What we've been charged with by
the Government is to look at people
who might want to bid on the
telecommunications company, analyse
the bids and make recommendations
to the Government," Mr Donaldson
said.
The Commonwealth Bank chair-
man added that the committee would


be "going to find out the interest out
there" in acquiring a 49 per cent BTC
stake, adding that he personally want-
ed to complete the privatization by
autumn 2008.
Mr Donaldson, who headed the
BTC privatization committee under
the first Ingraham administration, said
the process the committee would
adopt would be similar to, but not
the same as, an open 'beauty contest',
which is usually subject to public
scrutiny and transparency.
"Money isn't the only criteria. We
need someone who knows and has
done something in the telecommuni-
cations sector," Mr Donaldson said,
explaining that it was important that


the chosen bidder brought the right
combination of investment capital,
technology and technical know-how
to the table.
Committee
The BTC privatization committee
chairman's comments indicate that
the Government still seems deeply
sceptical of the Bluewater offer. It
has never seemed keen on it, appear-
ing to view it as a 'PLP deal'.
Bluewater, in the agreement in
principle it reached with the former
Christie administration, agreed to pay
$260 million in total for a 49 per cent
BTC stake. This involved paying $225


million upfront, a further $30 million
after five years when BTC's cellular
monopoly expired, and $5 million in
the sixth year.
The Tribune has identified Blue-
water's principals countless times,
but Mr Donaldson said he did not
know them and the whole commit-
tee was now studying the files to "get
up to speed as quickly as possible"
on where the privatization process
currently stood.
Mr Donaldson added: "For the
sake of the country, those industries
that depend on first-class telecom-
munications and the consumer, we
need to do something. We have not
developed the telecoms industry to


the point where we are maximising
income from it."
"This [the privatization] will be
done this year. I'm not talking about
going into 2009. This will be done by
autumn this year.
"In order to move into the 21st cen-
tury in tourism and banking, we need
someone with the technology and the
money. We have no excuses in today's
world for not having the technology.
The technology is there.
"One of the other things is that
we're going to make sure there's uni-
versal coverage. No community in the
Bahamas will be left unserved. The
technology exists to serve an archi-
pelago at a non-exorbitant price."

The Bahamas has until mid-
April to submit its initial com-
mitment in this area, having
been given an extra six months
in the draft EPA agreement to
do so.
Talks with various private


sector organizations and pro-
fessions were continuing, and
Mr Laing said: "The biggest
issue for us is defining the
modes of delivery for each of
the sectors. There are four
modes, and it's making the
choices that best reflect our


economic interests.
"There are also some of the
trade-related issues, and how
these can be worked out in our
services offer."
The four modes of supply
delivery are the supply of cross
border services; travelling
abroad to consume a service
in another country; an EU or
CARIFORUM firm setting up
a subsidiary or branch in the
other's territory (commercial
presence); and certain cate-
gories of professional worker
coming into the other's terri-
tory.
The trade-related issues
involve competition policy and
regulation; intellectual prop-
erty; protection of personal
data; and the environment.

Fed rate cuts need





further support


* By ROBERT GAVIN
Globe Staff
c. 2007 The Boston Globe
THE Federal Reserve yes-
terday followed its unprece-
dented actions to stabilize finan-
cial markets with another
aggressive interest rate cut, but
many analysts say the central
bank will still need help from
Congress and the Bush admin-
istration to right the struggling
economy.
The Fed sliced its benchmark
interest rate by three-quarters
of a point, two days after it engi-
neered the sale of sinking Wall
Street investment firm Bear
Stearns Cos. and opened its
lending window to securities
dealers for the first time in its
history. The rate cut was less
than the one-point reduction
that many analysts had expect-
ed, but still aggressive. It's only
the second time since 1982 that


policy makers have approved a
single cut of three-quarters of
a point.
The cut helped send stocks
soaring. In addition, better-
than-expected earnings from
Wall Street firms Goldman
Sachs Group Inc. and Lehman
Brothers Holdings Inc. provid-
ed relief to investors worried
that other investment firms
would follow Bear Stearns into
collapse.
The Dow Jones industrial
average surged 420.41 points,
its biggest one-day gain in near-
ly six years, to close at 12,392.66.
The broader Standard & Poor's
500 Index rose 54.14 to 1,330.74.
The technology heavy Nasdaq
Composite Index gained 91.25
to close at 2,268.26.
"The US financial system
remains intact, massively sup-
ported by the Fed," said Allen
Sinai, chief economist at Deci-
sion Economics Inc., a Boston


financial market advisory firm.
"The rate cuts and injections of
liquidity have provided a posi-
tive stimulant in a very sick sit-
uation."
Liquidity is another word for
money that keeps financial mar-
kets operating. The Fed, in
addition to slicing interest rates,
has injected hundreds of billions
of dollars into the financial sys-
tem as rising mortgage defaults
and foreclosures threatened to
bring financial and credit mar-
kets to a halt.
Benchmark
Yesterday's rate cut brings
the Fed's benchmark to 2.25 per
cent, the lowest since late 2004.
The Fed has cut the rate three
percentage points since Sep-
tember, and many economists
expect the Fed to keep cutting
rates over the next few months.
* Lowering interest rates aims
to boost the economy by
encouraging businesses and
consumers to borrow and
spend. But eroding confidence,
undermined by the meltdown
in housing and mortgage mar-
kets, has made lenders reluc-
tant to make loans, and con-
sumers reluctant to borrow,
muting the impact of cheaper
money.
As a result, economists say,
the Fed's actions won't be
enough to keep the economy
from recession. Many forecast
that the United States is already
there.
"They've lost the battle to
prevent a recession," said James
O'Sullivan, economist at UBS
AG in Stamford, Conn. "The
new battle lines are being
drawn, and they want to pre-
vent a deep recession."
Some economists say theacen-
tral bank can't do it alone, and
the federal government needs
to intervene directly into the
housing market even becom-
ing the buyer of last resort for


mortgage loans and securities.
Fears of loan defaults and fore-
closures have made it difficult, if
not impossible, to sell these
loans and securities in credit
markets, limiting the money
available for mortgages and
leading to higher rates, tighter
credit standards, and fewer buy-
ers.
The result: weaker sales,
falling prices, and more fore-
closures.
"Congress and the president
have to come in with a rescue
package that takes some of the
risk off mortgage portfolios,"
said Nariman Behravesh, chief
economist at Global Insight, a
Waltham forecasting firm.
"They've really got to get ahead
of this, find a systemic solution,
and stop moving from crisis to
crisis."
So far, the Bush administra-
tion has resisted intervention of
this scale, analysts said. Presi-
dent Bush, in Florida yesterday
to speak on trade and raise
money for Republicans, said the
Fed and US Treasury have
moved swiftly to stabilize the
economy.
He said the administration is
ready to take additional action
if needed.
US Representative Barney
Frank, Democrat of Newton
and chairman of the House
Financial Services Committee,
said there's no doubt greater
federal intervention is needed
to address the root cause of the
problems: the subprime crisis
that put homeowners into mort-
gages they couldn't afford.
Frank recently proposed legis-
lation that would provide up to
$300 billion in federal loan guar-
antees to help refinance strug-
gling homeowners into afford-
able mortgages.
"This is not a normal cyclical
recession," Frank said. "Why is
this recession different than any
other recession? Subprime. And
you have to deal with it."

Fed cuts risk feeding hysteria


M By JEANNINE AVERSA
AP Economics Writer
\VASI IINGTON (AP) There's
a risk in Federal Reserve Chairman
Hen Bernanke's hold moves of late.
If recent history is any guide, the
ct'upholi;i that met the Fcd's three-
lquarter-point reduction to a key
interest rate Tuesday could be
lshort-lived. With a string of urgent
and aggressive actions, the Fed itself
could end up feeding the panicky
mind-set that it so desperately wants
to calm.
Even inside the Fed there was dis-
agreement about just how much the
key interest rate its most potent
tool in dealing with economic trou-
ble should be lowered.
Two Fed members dissented, pre-
ferring a smaller cut, while
Bernanke and seven others pre-
vailed with a more powerful three-
quarter-point one. Cuts of this size
are pretty infrequent. Bernanke, in
an emergency session in January,
ordered one making for the sin-


"I think it is true that Federal
Reserve actions coming closely one
after the other in the last few weeks -
while no doubt are helpful for the
economy they carry with them a
risk that people will perceive them
as involving some slight desperation."
Marvin Goodfriend


gle-biggest reduction in more than
two decades.
Wall Street was ebullient Tuesday
- soaring 420 points even as it
had hoped for greater relief a
rare reduction of one percentage
point. Yet, one wonders just how
long the good feeling will last. Wall
Street has been largely engulfed in
turmoil since last year swinging


wildly at times between relief and
panic.
In a bid to revive a sagging econo-
my, the Fed dropped its key rate to
2.25 percent. In turn, the prime
lendng rate for millions of con-
sumers and businesses fell by a cor-
responding amount, to 5.25 percent.
Both are the lowest since late 2004.
It held the door open to the possi-


ability that rates would fall even low-
er in the months ahead.
The Fed's action was the latest in
a series of extraordinary moves -
many in just the past few days and
weeks that the Fed has resorted
to as it seeks to prevent a financial
catastrophe that could plunge the
country into a deep and painful
recession.
Yet, it raises the question: can the
Fed in its very efforts to contain
spreading credit and financial crises,
end up also spreading fear?
"I think it is true that Federal
Reserve actions coming closely one
after the other in the last few weeks
- while no doubt are helpful for
the economy they carry with
them a risk that people will perceive
them as involving some slight des-
peration," said Marvin Goodfriend,
economics professor at the Carnegie
Mellon University.
The Fed's words not just its
actions matter a lot and can color
how people view the economy and
their own financial fortunes.


On Tuesday, the Fed was blunt in
its assessment that the country's
economic health has worsened.
"The outlook for economic activity
has weakened further," the Fed
said. "Financial markets remain
under considerable stress and the
tightening of credit conditions and
the deepening of the housing con-
traction are likely to weigh on eco-
nomic growth over the next few
quarters."
Such words can make people
more nervous. The Fed walks a fine
line between trying to give the pub-
lic an accurate picture of what is
going on and at the same time not
spooking them or investors.
"Saying nothing could also trigger
a panic as well" and undermine the
Fed's credibility, said Victor Li, an
economics professor at the Villano-
va School of Business. "People
would be more nervous if the Fed
sat back and did nothing."

FROM page 14B

Still, the Fed's rate-cutting
campaign, which started in
September, and turned much
more forceful in January,
hasn't put people into a bet-
ter frame of mind where they
are more willing to spend.
Instead, they have hunkered
down, adding to the econo-
my's problems. "Maybe the
public is saying, the Fed can't
really do much about the
impending recession," Li
said.
The Fed's lifelines -
through interest rate cuts and
other moves probably
won't pull the country back
from the brink of its first
recession since 2001. Many
believe the country has
slipped into recession.
With jobs harder to come
by, most people probably will
feel skittish for a while.
Employers slashed 63,000
jobs in February, the most in
five years. It was the second
month in a row of nationwide
job losses. The unemploy-
ment rate, now at 4.8 percent,
is expected to rise to around
5.5 percent later this year.
And, many believe the
market's volatility will persist
for some time, too.
"Volatility is to be expect-
ed. You'll have good new one
day, bad news another day.
The market is trying to find a
stable point in being buffeted
by good and bad revelations
of matters involving credit,"
Goodfriend said.
Just a week ago, Wall
Street soared by nearly 417
points the biggest rally
since 2002 when the Fed
unveiled a new and innova-
tive way to deal with the


worsening credit crunch, -
letting big Wall Street firms
borrow up to $200 billion in
ultra-safe and much-in-
demand Treasury securities
and pledge harder-to-sell
mortgage securities as collat-
eral. The euphoria, however,
was short-lived, and investors
fell back into a nervous funk.
A few days later, the Fed,
in a rare use of authority dat-
ing back to the Depression-
era days of the 1930s, backed
a rescue package of venera-
ble investment bank Bear
Stearns, which teetered on
the brink of collapse. Wall
Street, however, tumbled by
nearly 195 points as the Fed's
action stoked concerns about
the severity of credit troubles
and whether other big finan-
cial firms might falter.
Two days after that on
Sunday the Fed took more
bold actions -- including
backing JP Morgan's
takeover of Bear Stearns and
guaranteeing up to $30 bil-
lion in troubled mortgages
and other assets that brought
about Bear Stearns' downfall.
Critics contend it's akin to a
government bailout.
The Fed also Sunday
agreed to let big investment
houses get emergency loans
directly from the central
bank for the first time. The
new lending facility similar
to one that's been available
to commercial banks for
years started Monday and
will continue for at least six
months. The following morn-
ing, stocks around the world
fell sharply. Investors
remained skittish in the Unit-
ed States, although the Dow
Jones managed to finish the
day up slightly.
The panicky mind-set that


has swept'over investors
since last summer has made
credit become harder and
harder to get. Financial insti-
tutions, which racked up
huge losses due to soured
investments in mortgage-
linked securities, became
increasingly wary of lending
and hoarded cash.
"The menacing beast is not
a recession but the credit cri-
sis," said Greg McBride,
senior financial analyst at
Bankrate.com. "Recessions
happen and we'll get through
them particularly with the
Fed's rate cuts and the gov-
ernment's stimulus (of tax
rebates and tax breaks). But
without properly functioning
credit markets, the economy
can't grow. It is like starving
a fire of oxygen."

Technology boom banker's


* By ANDREW ROSS
SORKIN
c.2008 New York Times
News Service
HE'S back.
Frank Quattrone, the former
star investment banker whose
career was derailed by a four-
year fight against obstruction
of justice charges, announced
I'uesday what his next venture
will be: the Qatalyst Group, a
technology-focused merchant
banking group based in San
Francisco.
The news came about seven
months after a federal judge
approved a request by prose-
cutors to dismiss all remaining
charges against Quattrone, for-
mally clearing the way for his
return to Wall Street. "The
opera is over," he said at the
time, referring to the travails of
his conviction later reversed
- on charges of hindering a
government investigation into
initial public offerings at Cred-
it Suisse.
Since then. Silicon Valley


has speculated about what
Quattrone, who helped bring
dozens of companies public
during the 1990s technology
boom, including Netscape, Cis-
co and Amazon.com, might do
next. Rumors had him starting
a private equity firm, joining
a venture capital fund and, at
one point, even joining a major
technology company.
In an interview, Quattrone
said he had spent the last year
contemplating what to do. "I
went on quite a journey think-
ing about the possibilities," he
said.
When the charges against
him were dropped, he said he
was initially interested in start-
ing a private equity firm
focused on technology, an
industry that was, as he
described it, "boiling hot."
Many big technology compa-
nies were considering being
sold to buyout firms, and he
said, "I thought I should be the
guy to take them private, hav-
ing taken them public."
But as he explored the idea,

he said, "the conditions of the
marketplace got out of hand."
On the day the Blackstone
Group went public, a sign that
some now suggest was the
peak of the market, he put
down his pencil and "decided
not to do a private equity
firm."
Quattrone said he was per-
suaded to return to his roots
as an investment banker by
some work he did last summer
helping guide a friend, a for-
mer corporate client, through a
tricky situation. "I realized I
didn't want to be a private


equity guy after all," he said. "I
liked the strategic thinking of
playing three-dimensional
chess."
Quattrone, who spent much
of his time off working on the
Innocence Project, which helps
appeal unjust convictions, and
serving as chairman of the
Tech Museum of Innovation
in San Jose, Calif., also said
that he longed for investment
banking when he read about
big deals like Google's initial
public offering, which his for-
mer firm helped underwrite.
"It was a frustrating experi-

Silicon Valley seems to be
welcoming him back into busi-
ness with open arms. The Qat-
alyst press release featured
quotes from prominent Silicon
Valley executives, including
Eric E. Schmidt, the chief exec-
utive of Google, and Jim Brey-

equity firms through its invest-
ment arm.
The approach is similar to
that of Greenhill & Co., one
of the original boutiques, and
Moelis & Co., the firm that
Kenneth Moelis, a top banker
formerly of UBS, set up last
year.
Quattrone will be Qatalyst's
chief executive and has recon-
stituted a team of former Cred-
it Suisse bankers. However,
two of his closest former col-
leagues, George Boutros and
William Brady, are not among
them; they will remain at Cred-
it Suisse.
Boutros and Brady helped
build technology practices with
Quattrone at three firms, and
some thought Quattrone might
woo them to his new firm.
"Our careers and personal
objectives weren't in sync at
this particular time," he said. "I
love them and they are still my
closest friends."
The new six-person team
includes Jonathan Turner, for-


merely global head of Credit
Suisse's Internet group and
most recently vice president
for corporate development for
QuinStreet; Adrian E. Dollard,
formerly general counsel of
Credit Suisse's technology
group and a mergers and
acquisitions lawyer at Shear-
man & Sterling; Neil Cha-
lasani, most recently a vice
president with Evercore's tech-
nology, media and telecom-
munications group; Brian
Slingerland, most recently a
vice president with Goldman
Sachs's technology, media and
telecommunications group;
and Brian Cayne, most recent-
ly an associate at Vista Equity
Partners.
Quattrone, who played a lot
golf during his off time (he got
his handicap down to an 8.4
index) said he was eager to get
back to work, but must first
take a series of exams required
by the securities industry
because he has not worked in
the business for more than two
years. "I have been studying
my securities industry bible,"
he said with a laugh. "Ask me
anything you want."

C41


! By ERIC DASH
c.2008 New York Times
News Service
IN a boon for big banks and
Wall Street, Visa, the credit
card giant, went public on Tues-
day in the largest initial public
offering in American history.
SThe company's shares, priced
at $44 each, will begin trading
on Wednesday on the New
York Stock Exchange under the
ticker symbol V.
The $18 billion public offer-
ing was greeted with fanfare in
the financial industry but was
unlikely to unleash a new wave
of initial stock sales given the
turbulence in the markets.
Even so, the offering will gen-
erate a windfall for Visa's thou-
sands of member banks, which
own the company. JPMorgan
Chase is expected to reap about
$1.25 billion, while Bank of
America, National City, Citi-
group, U.S. Bancorp and Wells
Fargo are likely to receive sev-
eral hundred million dollars
each.
Wall Street firms, in the
meantime, stand to collect
upward of $500 million in
underwriting fees from the sale.
"That is a good infusion of
capital," said John E. Fitzgib-
bon Jr., the founder of
IPOScoop.com, a Web site that
tracks the industry. "And it's
no secret that Wall Street is cap-
ital starved right now."
Shares of Visa were priced
above the expected range of $37
to $42. More tpan 406 million


shares are being offered, with
an option to add 40.6 million if
there is demand. That means
the size of the sale could reach
as much as $19.7 billion.
In going public, Visa is fol-
lowing in the footsteps of its
smaller rival MasterCard, whose
shares have risen more than 439
percent since its public offering
in May 2006.
Many other companies, how-
ever, are struggling to sell stock
given turmoil in the markets.
"There are just not the buyers
out there in this environment,"
said Scott Sweet, a partner at
IPOBoutique, an industry
research firm. "They are scared
by the market volatility." Just 10
companies went public during
the first two months of 2008,
according to Dealogic, a finan-
cial services research firm. That
compares with 50 public offer-
ings in the first three months of
2007.
Analysts say that the market
has essentially been closed to
companies outside the energy,
natural resources and health
care industries. Excluding Visa,
roughly 190 deals, valued at a
combined $37.7 billion, are still
in the pipeline, according to
IPOScoop.com data.
Several high-profile initial
public offerings have been
scrapped or delayed in the last
few months, including one for
Kohlberg Kravis Roberts &
Co., the big buyout firm. In all,
about 77 per cent of all public
offerings have been withdrawn
or postponed, according to


bankers, including one thi
week by Pogo Jet, a jet charter
service.
Many companies that hav
moved forward with sales hav
scaled back their offerings. Cai
dioNet, a health care techno
gy startup that Citigroup is tal
ing public on Wednesday, ct
the number of shares it allocal
ed in half and lowered the pric
after several big shareholder
backed out of the offering.
Visa, however, is the bigge'
player in its industry and has
brand known to nearly ever3
one with a credit card. Wa
Street also understands th
company's business.
Visa and MasterCard hav
prospered as American
increasingly swipe their card
rather than use cash nearly
everywhere. The companies
have not been hurt by the crec
it squeeze, because they do nc
actually make credit card loan;
they merely process transaction
for banks that do.
Visa, whose offering is bein
led by JPMorgan and Goldma
Sachs with 17 other banks cor
tributing, has been contemplal
ing such a move for more tha
two years. In that time, it ha
bolstered its management tear
and revamped the company.
Industry observers sa
investors are complaining thi
they are being given only a frac
tion of the shares they request
ed.
"I hear that allocations ar
being given out with eyedrop
pers," Fitzgibbon said.

FIVE YEARS IN IRAQ




'I just have to worry about my piece o pie'


Sergeant remembers


the day he crossed


from Kuwait into Iraq


By MONI BASU
ARAB JABOUR, Iraq
Sgt. 1st Class Christopher
Brisley remembers the day he
crossed the berms from Kuwait
into Iraq in his Bradley Fighting
Vehicle. It was March 20,2003.
He had his mental "kill" switch
on, according to Cox News Ser-
vice.
His company rolled north
through harsh desert terrain
into Iraq's urban epicenter:
Baghdad.
There he began taking hits.
Rocket-propelled grenades
smashed into his Bradley. Hails
of AK-47 fire pinged off the
steel harness. The enemy -
about 2,000 of them charged
his vehicle. His soldiers killed
150 of Saddam Hussein's fight-
ers.
A few days later, U.S. forces
toppled a statue of the Iraqi dic-
tator. Brisley, like so many oth-
er Americans, thought the war
was over.
Now, five years later, Brisley,
35, is stepping into Iraq again,
this time from an 18-day leave
at home in Georgia. He's in the
middle of his third tour of Iraq,
all with the same Fort Stewart-
Sbased battalion.
"Hey, Sergeant Bris! Wel-
come back," yells a soldier as
Brisley walks toward his hooch
in a metal shipping container,
hidden behind tall concrete bar-
riers at Patrol Base Hawks.
Brisley and the rest of Bravo
Company, 1st Battalion, 30th
Infantry Regiment have been
at this small outpost in Arab
Jabour, a poor, Sunni district
southeast of Baghdad, since
September. They were part of
the "surge," and as such, live
and operate close to the local
people. As the sixth year of the


Iraq war begins, Brisley has
become adept at flipping mental
switches on and off.
Kill or no kill.
Platoon sergeant or father.
Stoic or emotional.
He's had to turn switches on
and off multiple times while
going back and forth from Iraq.
As he returns to the three
dozen men who depend on him
here, he has tucked away his
wife, Carrie (his Georgia Peach,
he calls her), and four daugh-
ters safely in his head. He won't
see them again until the battal-
ion returns home in August.
Five years ago, he never
thought he'd go through any of
this.
After months of hard train-
up and gut-wrenching anticipa-
tion, he found the Iraqi resis-
tance in 2003 to be weak. By
May, the president declared
Brisley's "mission accom-
plished," and he returned home
to South Georgia that August,
feeling "good about what we
did."
Inside his doublewide trailer
that sits on 2 1/2 acres in Glen-
nville, Brisley watched the war
footage Carrie saved for him.
He reveled in being an Ameri-
can hero. Life's routine was
interrupted for his young
daughters to celebrate daddy's
return after a year away.
But even then, somewhere in
Brisley's mind was this: He had
not seen the last of Iraq.
All his years in the Army told
him the U.S. military would not
disengage so quickly.
As the months wore on and
Iraq turned deadly for Ameri-
can forces, Brisley began ques-
tioning things. "Where did it all
go wrong?" He didn't know the
answer. He didn't understand.
All he knew was that he was
going back to war.


O 1.-- L ,,-1l" ;I---
AN IRAQI MAN comforts his 4-year-old son at a regroupment center for POWs of the 101st Airborne Division near An Najaf, Iraq in this March
31, 2003 file photo. The man was seized in An Najaf with his son and the U.S. military did not want to separate father and son.


In 2005, the battalion (it was
then the 3rd Battalion, 15th
Infantry Regiment) met a face-
less enemy in Sadr City, a
Shi'ite slum in northeast Bagh-
dad. Survival had new meaning
as American soldiers died rou-
tinely from unseen bombs hid-
den in roads, cars and buildings.
And the mission had
changed. Brisley, an unwavering
defender of the versatility of
infantrymen, recalls how his pla-
toon picked up raw sewage
from the streets.
"To me, it wasn't a kick in
the face. You deal with what's
handed to you," he says.
"I can't worry about how the
war is going in Iraq. I just have
to worry about my piece of the
pie. I can't fight like that. I have
to stay focused on what I am
doing."
It's a statement fitting of a
soldier's soldier. Brisley is here
to ensure the well being of the
young men in uniform who look
to him for guidance.
He has lost friends here two
were sergeants he raised in the
Army who died in a house
rigged with explosives last sum-
mer. Brisley watched one of
them take his last few breaths.


One day, when he's back in
Glennville, when the leaves are
green and the house is quiet,
he'll do his own grieving.
Or as he says, "I'll take a
knee."
"But I can't sit and sulk now.
These men depend on me," he
says. "It hurts but you got to
turn it off."
There are soldiers in Brisley's
battalion, veterans of the Iraq
war, who are tired and frustrat-
ed. Some question American
strategy here. Others have
turned against the war. Not
Brisley. "Too many American
soldiers have died over here to
say, 'we're done,"' he says.
"I don't know if we are caus-
ing the violence but the Iraqi
people they've got to stand
up," he says, just before heading
out on a mission, his first since
returning from his leave.
"I can't make Mohammed
like Mohammed," he says about
the sectarian strife. "Providing
security here sometimes it's
working, sometimes it's not. But
it's worth it. It's got to be."

Report: Lynndie




England sorry for




Abu Ghraib scandal


By MATT MOORE
BERLIN
Lynndie England, the public
face of the Abu Ghraib prison
scandal, told a German news
magazine that she was sorry for
appearing in photographs of
detainees in the notorious Iraqi
prison, and believes the scenes
of torture and humiliation
served as a powerfuLrall)ing
point for anti-American insur-
gents, according to the Associ-
ated Press.
In an interview with the
weekly magazine Stern con-
ducted in English and posted
on its Web site Tuesday, Eng-
land was both remorseful and
unrepentant and conceded
that the published photos sure-
ly incensed insurgents in Iraq.
"I guess after the picture
came out the insurgency picked
up and Iraqis attacked the
Americans and the British and
they attacked in return and they
were just killing each other. I
felt bad about it ... no, I felt
pissed off. If the media hadn't
exposed the pictures to that
extent, then thousands of li\ es
would have been saved," she
was quoted as saying.
Asked how she could blame
the media for the controversy.
she said it wasn't her who
leaked the photos.
"Yeah. I took the photos but
I didn't make it worldwide. Yes.
I was in five or six pictures and
I took some pictures, and those
pictures were shameful and
degrading to the Iraqis and to
our government," she said.
Sacc fr- BIrf* report -.r
"And I feel sorry and wropg
about what I did. But it would
not have escalated to what it
did all over the world if it
wouldn't have been for some-
one leaking it to the media."
England, who was a private
first class, was in several images
taken in late 2003 by U.S.
guards at Abu Ghraib. One
showed her holding a naked
prisoner on a leash, while in
others she posed with a pyra-
mid of naked detainees and
pointed at the genitals of a pris-
oner while a cigarette hung
from the corner of her mouth.
Asked by the magazine if
what happened at Abu Ghraib
was a scandal or something that
happens during wartime, Eng-
land said it was the latter.
"I'm saying that what we did
happens in war. It just isn't doc-
umented," she was quoted as
saying. "If it had been broken
by the news without the pictures
it wouldn't have been that big."
She told the magazine that
there are other photographs
that have not been released that


Media is blamed for

U.S. ARMY Pfc. Lynndie R. England arrives for her Article 32 Inves-
tigation hearing in the Abu Ghraib prison scandal at Fort Hood,
Texas, in this 2005 file photo. England, the public face of the Abu

prison, and believes the scenes of torture and humiliation served as
a powerful rallying point for anti-American insurgents.


contain more graphic images
than those that were seen on
television, in newspapers and
on the Internet.
"You see the dogs biting the
prisoners. Or you see bite marks
from the dogs. You can see MPs
(military police) holding down a
prisoner so a medic can give
him a shot," she said. "If those
had been made public at the
time, then the whole world
would have looked at those and
not at mine."
England was released in
March 2007 after serving half
her 36-month sentence. She was


convicted of six counts involving
prisoner mistreatment.
England said she is living with
her parents in Fort Ashby,
W.Va., along with her son,
Carter, whose father is Charles
Graner Jr., the reputed ring-
leader of those who took the
pictures. They were both mem-
bers of the 372nd Military
Police Company based in west-
ern Maryland.
Eleven U.S. soldiers were
convicted of crimes at the prison
near Baghdad. Graner received
the harshest sentence, a 10-year
prison term.

Brisley puts his personal beefs aside as he steps
into the turret of his Bradley. It's his third tour up
there as the vehicle commander, scanning the
battered sights of Iraq through high-powered
opticals. Except today, he won't be ordering his
gunner to pull any triggers. Brisley's men are
going to negotiate the repair of a village mosque
damaged in the fighting.
It's another role Brisley has assumed: coun-
terinsurgency. He often monitors the call to
prayers that echo from the mosque loudspeakers,
just in case the message is violent. Today, he
wants to assure community leader Abdullah
Ahmed Thedan that he'll receive $2,000 to fix,
the broken windows and shattered ceilings.

New York dining institution.


"These patrol bases started a whole new thing
in putting us with the local populace," Brisley
says. "The fighting's over with. Now we're told to
go be the nice guys."
Brisley has learned to adapt as an infantry-
man. He's also learned to adapt as a human being.
It's all about the mental switches.
He found out the hard way that life doesn't
stand still while he is away at war; this latest
deployment is 15 months long. "My mindset used
to be that everything is supposed to stop. My
children weren't supposed to grow up without
me," he says.
When he arrived in Glennville for leave this
time, Brisley insisted his daughters, between the
ages of 3 and 10, keep going to school. Don't do
anything differently for me, he told them, because
I will be gone again.

c. 2007 The Boston
Globe
ANTHONY MINGHEL-
LA, who won an Academy
Award as director of the film
"The English Patient," died
early Tuesday at a London
hospital. According to Mr.
Minghella's publicist, he had
undergone successful surgery
last week for cancer of the
tonsils and neck, then suffered
a hemorrhage.
Jude Law, whom Mr.
Minghella directed in "Cold
Mountain" (2003), "The Tal-
ented Mr. Ripley" (1999), and
"Breaking and Entering"
(2006), released a statement
calling him "a brilliantly tal-
ented writer and director who
wrote dialogue that was a joy
to speak and then put it on
to the screen in a way that
always looked effortless."
Mr. Minghella was 54.
"An artist of the highest cal-
iber," Tony Blair, former
prime minister of Britain,
called Mr. Minghella Tuesday.
Blair became friends with Mr.
Minghella when he directed a
Labor Party election adver-
tisement in 2005. "Anthony
Minghella was a wonderful
human being, creative and

You'll wonder how


brilliant, but still humble, gen-
tle, and a joy to be with."
Although best known as a
film director, Mr. Minghella
began as a playwright (and
later wrote the screenplays
for nearly all his films). He
also worked extensively in
British television. Among the
shows he wrote scripts for was
the popular detective series
"Inspector Morse."
An adaptation Mr.
Minghella had done of
Alexander McCall Smith's
best-selling novel "The No. 1
Ladies' Detective Agency" is
scheduled to air on the BBC
next week and at a future
date on HBO. Mr. Minghella
directed his first opera, Puc-
cini's "Madama Butterfly," in
2005 at the English National
Opera and in 2006 at New
York's Metropolitan Opera.

Intimacy
Mr. Minghella's films were
notable for their ability to bal-
ance intimacy and sweep. The
literary adaptations "The
English Patient" (1996) and
"Cold Mountain" were
wartime epics that spanned
great distances in time and
space. Mr. Minghella can be
seen, in certain respects, as
the heir of another Oscar-win-

ning English director of liter-
ate screen spectacles, David
Lean.
Yet at the heart of both
"The English Patient" and
"Cold Mountain" were
enduring love stories. The
much smaller-scale love story
in Mr. Minghella's first film,
"Truly, Madly, Deeply,"
(1991) a ghostly comedy,
endured death itself.
The son of Italian immi-
grants, Mr. Minghella imbued
his work with a special feeling
for outsiderdom and the frac-
tures of class and nationality.
Whether it be Ralph Fiennes's
Hungarian count and Naveen
Andrews's Indian demolition
expert in "The English
Patient" or Matt Damon's
upwardly mobile murderer in
"Ripley," Mr. Minghella
memorably recorded the usu-
ally unspoken intricacies of
how groups do, and do not,

The son of Edward and
Gloria Minghella, he was
born on the Isle of Wight on
Jan. 6,1954. He earned bach-
elor's and master's degrees at
the University of Hull, but
abandoned further graduate
studies to work in London
theater.
Two major influences on his
work were. the director Peter
Brook and the playwright
Samuel Beckett (the first two
stage works Mr. Minghella
directed were Beckett's
"Play" and "Happy
Days").
Mr. Minghella made the
move from experimental the-
ater to mainstream success
with the 1986 West End dra-
ma "Made in Bangkok,"
about a British tour group in
Thailand.
Another influence was Jim
Henson, for whom Mr.
Minghella wrote the script of
a television miniseries, "The
Storyteller: Greek Myths"
(1990), an exercise in the
magical that led to his direct-
ing debut, "Truly, Madly,
Deeply," a year later.
Mr. Minghella had served
as chairman of the British
Film Institute. With the direc-
tor Sydney Pollack, he ran a
production company, Mirage
Enterprises. It produced, in
addition to Mr. Minghella's
own films, "Iris" (2001). "The
Quiet American" (2002), and
"Michael Clayton" (2007), on
all of which he served as exec-
utive producer.
Mr. Minghella leaves his
wife, Carolyn Choa; a son,
Max, an actor; and a daughter,
Hannah.

uary.

BOSTON' RECRUITERS LOOK FOR PEOPLE TO TEACH ENGLISH AS SECOND LANGUAGE




In search of bilingual educators


* By TRACY JAN
BOSTON Globe Staff
SAN JUAN

A s a balmy breeze
fanned the palm fronds
dotting the college campus, the
man in the seersucker suit and
leather flip flops pointed to a
sheet filled with numbers and
launched into his pitch for Boston
public schools.
"Starting salary for you would
be right here, at $44,000,"
recruiter Alvin Cooper told a 22-
year-old aspiring elementary
school teacher.
She blinked, then smiled. The
figure was more than double what
she would make here in Puerto
Rico.
Cooper and three colleagues
spent three days last week scour-
ing the Caribbean island for bilin-
gual teachers, from a prestigious
university to a rundown middle
school, from a big city to an out-
post tropical town, and then went
to great lengths to lure them to
Boston as part of a fledgling ini-
tiative to boost Latino student
achievement in the city.
"We need you, quite honest-
ly," Cooper told dozens of candi-
dates over and over again.
Boston recruiters were looking
for educators to teach English as
a second language, as well as
math, science, and special educa-
tion to address a national short-
age of qualified teachers in those

and their families hinges on a

table and passing out
brochures at a job fair."

subjects and to help the city's fast-
growing Latino student popula-
tion, many who are not fluent in
English.
Over the next five years, they
hope to hire more than 40 new
teachers for Spanish-speaking stu-
dents. Their goal during this trip
was five teachers. Next year, it
will be 10. Amid tight times, they
are conscious of costs. Their
flights, accommodations at a
Howard Johnson Hotel, and oth-
er expenses totaled $3,300.
Their mission took them
beyond a job fair at the Universi-
ty of Puerto Rico in Rmo Piedras
to an overcrowded public middle
school in Santurce, a working-
class Dominican enclave in San
Juan.
They trekked four hours across
the island to a tiny Adventist uni-
versity tucked among banana


trees and unmarked roads in the
hillside of Mayag 5/8ez. At those
stops and in other meetings in
San Juan, they forged ties with a
dozen education officials and
community activists who they
hoped would funnel promising
candidates their way.
"The success of recruiting peo-
ple to leave their island and their
families hinges on a lot more than
setting up a table and passing out
brochures at a job fair," said
Nydia Mendez, director of
Boston's program for English lan-
guage learners, who, having
grown up in Puerto Rico, took
part in the trip.
More than a third of Boston's
56,000 students are Latino; more
than 40 percent of them are learn-
ing English as a second language.
And since the state eliminated
bilingual education in 2002, these

students have fallen further
behind.


Latino

Latino students with lim-
ited English skills are
nearly four times more likely to
drop out than white students,
according to state statistics. In
Boston, state test scores also show
a persistent gap between Latino
and white student achievement.
More than half of Latino 10th-
graders are not proficient in math
and reading, according to 2007
MCAS results, compared with a
quarter of white students.
Scholarly research has shown
that bilingual teachers from cul-
turally similar backgrounds can
better relate to these students and
help them stay in school, but only
9 percent of Boston's teachers are
Latino. This school year, 20 per-
cent of the teaching positions that
remained unfilled in September
were for English as a second lan-
guage programs, leaving those
students to begin the year with
unqualified substitutes, school
officials said.
But Boston had competition at
the job fair, begun by the Uni-
versity of Puerto Rico last year
in response to the growing
demand for Spanish-speaking
teachers in the rest of the United
States. Because the island is a
commonwealth of the United
States, Puerto Ricans are Ameri-
can citizens and therefore do not
face immigration hurdles.
Near Cooper's booth, in a
shaded courtyard, were repre-
sentatives from 16 other public
school systems, including Chica-
go, Denver, and Dallas.
While most of those recruiters
simply worked the job fair,
Boston's delegation dashed
around the island when it was
done. Their timing could not have
been better, the situation more
conducive to the recruitment
pitch.
The island's 42,000 public
school teachers recently sus-
pended a 10-day strike over mea-
ger salaries, crowded classrooms,
and deplorable facilities. Mary
Puerto Rican schools are so poor
that teachers say they must supply
their own paper and chalk and
paint their own classrooms.
School buildings are often run
down, with leaking roofs, win-
dows that don't open, and deteri-
orating bathrooms.
"The conditions you'd be
working in Puerto Rico, it's frus-
trating," said Teresa Rodriguez, a
55-year-old teacher.


Rodriguez has 14 years of
experience, mostly in private
schools. She had heard Mendez's
and Cooper's cellphone numbers
broadcast on a radio ad about
Boston's efforts and drove an
hour-and-a-half from her home
in the beach town of Luquillo to
be interviewed in San Juan.
During the 90-minute inter-
view, Mendez took care not just
to ask the veteran teacher how
she would motivate students,
engage families, and manage dis-
ruptive students. She cut to the
chase.
"How serious are you about
leaving your beautiful Puerto
Rico and moving to the US?"
Mendez asked.
Rodriguez responded candid-
ly. She had divorced two years
ago, she said, and it was time for
a new phase in her life. "I'm not
that young," she said. "I'd like to
do what I've always wanted."
Before securing a permanent
teaching post, recruits must pass
Massachusetts teacher licensing
test, which Boston plans to begin
offering in Puerto Rico next year.
Mendez urged Rodriguez to
take the test and promised to
introduce her to Boston's Puerto
Rican community when she visits
in July. Mendez and her team are
unabashed when it comes to
scouting teachers. They will even
recruit other recruiters and uni-
versity' administrators. Their
rationale: Get them thinking
about Boston, because one never
knows what the future could
bring.

Shuttered

En route to a meeting in
Santurce, Mendez made
an impromptu visit to a neigh-
borhood middle school, a three-
story lemon-colored concrete
building with white shuttered win-
dows. After charming the securi-
ty guard into giving them a tour,
Mendez tried to recruit the
school's English teacher, a Puer-
to Rican who spent her childhood
in Connecticut.
The woman said she did not
want to leave her two grown sons,
whose hand'onie pictures'sfie
proudly shared. Undeterred,
Mendez tore a pink Post-it'note
from a pad on the teacher's desk
and scribbled her contact infor-
mation. "Call me." she said. Then
she asked for the teacher's phone
number.
Mendez knows that persuad-
ing teachers to leave the island
often takes much more than a job
offer. For the right candidate,
Boston recruiters say, they are


willing to solve any problem that
stands in the way, be it housing,
scrounging up money to take the
state's teacher-licensing test, or
finding jobs or graduate school
opportunities for the teachers'
spouses. The school system is
applying for grants to help with
travel and moving expenses and
appealing to Boston's Puerto
Rican community to help teach-
ers make the transition.
"If you have a problem, we'll
take care of it," Cooper told
Michael A. Cabrera Rivera, a 26-
year-old teacher in San Juan.
"We want to get you up to
Boston right away."
With the young man, Cooper
struck gold. Cabrera Rivera, a
former actor, played a California
teenager in a Puerto Rican sit-
com. He speaks fluent English
and Spanish, directs a school the-
ater program, writes an educa-
tion blog, and, best of all,. has
experience working with children
with special needs.
Although he has never lived
on the mainland, Cabrera Rivera
said he is ready to pack his bags.
His family, though, is hesitant to
see him go because he is the old-
est of three. "But they know I
need to do this," he said. "They
know I'll be better off there as a
teacher."
Promising candidates who want
master's degrees are funneled
into the school system's free one-
year teacher training program,
which comes with an $11,000 liv-
ing stipend, a master's degree
from the University of Massa-
chusetts at Boston, and a three-
year teaching contract. The aspir-
ing teachers would also work in a
Boston school with a mentor dur-
ing their year of studies.
Of the 70 candidates Boston
recruiters met during their trip,
four would be recommended for
teaching jobs starting in Septem-
ber. They would still need to be
interviewed by principals and
their hiring committees, who get
the final say. More than 20 others
are being encouraged to apply for
the master's degree program.
The future of Boston's Latino
students depends on these teach-
ers, the recruiters believe.
-" We've hatd so many kids
whb'Ve fallen through the'cracks
since 2002 that this is the only
way to recoup them," said Lucia
Mayerson-David, a UMass-
Boston professor helping with the
recruitment. "If you can get
teachers who can relate to these
kids, the kids are going to stay in
school."

"You'll see a lot of frustration

Alexandria, Virginia, which
promotes aviation safety around
the world.
"You'll see a lot of frustra-
tion and canceled flights, and
when the slightest thing goes
wrong you'll see a major dis-
ruption in services," he said.
Henry Harteveldt, a San
Francisco-based travel analyst
with Forrester Research, said
it's important to remember that
most, if not all, the slots being
taken by US airlines at
Heathrow under Open Skies
have come from the pool allo-
cated to other airlines.
"Thus the overall number of
flight takeoffs and landings at
Heathrow shouldn't increase
dramatically," he said.
But Harteveldt acknowl-
edged that congestion still pos-
es an enormous challenge for
Heathrow.
"Just because the airport and
its air space can safely accom-
modate these flights, doesn't
mean they'll operate on time,"
he said.
Airport owner BAA, a sub-
sidiary of Grupo Ferrovial of
Spain, wants to build. third


runway at Heathrow. But the
move is vehemently opposed by
environmentalists and even
London's Mayor Ken Living-
stone. For London-bound pas-
sengers, new fees will soon add
insult to injury. Britain's avia-
tion regulator recently
announced hikes of more than
20 percent in fees charged to
passengers at Heathrow and
Gatwick.
Responding to a BAA
request for more money to fund
improvements, the Civil Avia-
tion Authority said it would
allow passenger fees to jump
23.5 percent at Heathrow to the
equivalent of $25.82 per pas-
senger, effective April 1. It is
allowing a 21 percent increase at
Gatwick, to the equivalent of
$13.70 per passenger.
The fee is charged to airlines
for each passenger departure or
arrival, and is typically passed
on to the consumer.
On the ground, Heathrow
passengers have also grown
increasingly frustrated over long
security lines and crowded ter-
minals.
SBut BAA officials said those


conditions should improve this
week (March 27) when a new
Terminal Five opens for use by
British Airways. It will be able
to handle 30 million passengers
a year.
The new terminal "will
breathe new life into Heathrow,
allowing us to continue our
transformation of the rest of the
airport," BAA Chairman Nigel
Rudd told BBC Radio.
Heathrow's terminals are all
scheduled to be renovated or
replaced in the coming years.
In the meantime, US carriers
are eager to assert their new
rights under Open Skies and
create a presence there.
Airline consultant Mike Boyd
of the Boyd Group of Ever-
green, Colorado said US air-
lines are "spending sums just
short of the German war debt
to get slots" on the assumption
that being at Heathrow is a
license to print money.
"If the US carrier has alliance
partners with a strong connect-
ing system there, they might get
some incremental traffic over
what they were getting at
Gatwick," he said.
"But without that, Heathrow
isn't any really big advantage
for US consumers flying to Lon-
don, and most US-generated
consumers don't care."
In the end, he said he would-
n't be surprised if "some carri-
ers decide to sell off their
Heathrow slots and move (pck
to Gatwick."

. Opening lead two of diamonds.

There are times when declarer,
because of the imminent danger of a
ruff in a side suit, decides against
taking a normal trump finesse and
instead tries to draw the outstanding
trumps as quickly as possible.
Whether this decision is correct nat-
urally depends on the surrounding
circumstances.
Consider this case where East
won the diamond lead with the ace
and returned his singleton club.
South was well-aware that the nor-
mal percentage play with his com-


bined trump holding was to try two
finesses, but he was afraid that if he
won the club in dummy and led a
spade to the jack, West might win
and give East a club ruff.
So South instead took the club in
his hand and played the ace and
another spade. East won with the
queen and shifted to a heart, covered
by the queen, king and ace. Declarer
now had to go down one, losing two
trump tricks, a diamond and a heart.
South's method of play would
have succeeded if the trumps had
divided 2-2, or if an honor had fallen
'from either opponent's hand on the
ace. The question, therefore, is
whether in the given situation he
should have preferred that approach
to taking a first-round finesse, which
would have made the contract.
Tle answer is that declarer should
have opted for the trump finesse at
trick three, since his fears were
utterly groundless.
To confirm this, let's assume that
what South was afraid of actually
occurs. He finesses in spades, West
wins, and a club return is ruffed by
East. This gives the defenders their
third trick, but that is the end of the
line. Declarer wins any return, draws
the lone missing trump and scores
the rest of the tricks, discarding his
heart losers on dummy's clubs.
South's fear was an illusion, and
it should not have panicked him into
rejecting the.normal percentage play.

Sir George Thomas v Frederick
Yates, Hastings 1922. England's
top pair in the 1920s came from
vastly different backgrounds.
The badminton and tennis
playing baronet had an
independent income and a flat
in Mayfair, while the
Yorkshireman had limited means
and struggled to make a
precarious chess living. Perhaps
it was through class deference
that Yates did badly in his
personal games against his rival
during this decade, though he
was the stronger player and
improved towards 1930. They
were personally on good terms,
and when Thomas had to turn
down an invitation to the great
tournament at New York 1924
he persuaded the organizers to
accept Yates as his substitute.

MOVES TO HIT CHINA OVER HANDLING OF TIBET VIOLENCE GAIN MOMENTUM



Calls mount in Europe for VIPs to boycott




the Beijing Olympics' opening ceremony


* By JOHN LEICESTER
PARIS
Moves to punish China over
its handling of violence in Tibet
gained momentum Tuesday,
with a novel suggestion for a
mini-boycott of the Beijing
Olympics by VIPs at the open-
ing ceremony, according to the
Associated Press.
Such a protest by world lead-
ers would be a huge slap in the
face for China's Communist
leadership.
France's outspoken foreign
minister, former humanitarian
campaigner Bernard Kouchn-
er, said the idea "is interesting."
Kouchner said he wants to
discuss it with other foreign
ministers from the 27-nation
European Union next week.
His comments opened a crack
in what until now had been sol-
id opposition to a full boycott, a
stance that Kouchner said
remains the official government
position.
The idea of skipping the Aug.
8 opening ceremony "is less
negative than a general boy-
cott," Kouchner said. "We are
considering it."
Asked about Kouchner's
statement, China's U.N.
Ambassador Wang Guangya
said: "Certainly I think what he
said is not shared by most of
the people in the world."
International Olympic Com-
mittee President Jacques Rogge
said last month that he expects
many heads of state includ-
ing President Bush, German
Chancellor Angela Merkel and
French President Nicolas
Sarkozy to attend the open-
ing ceremony.
Such an opening ceremony
boycott presumably would not
include the athletes, who under
Olympic rules are forbidden
from making any kind of protest
at events or venues including
the opening ceremony. It's not
mandatory that every athlete
participate in the opening cere-


DEMONSTRATORS hold placards and Tibetan flags outside the International (
quarters, in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Tuesday. Tibetans call on IOC Preside
about the Tibet crackdown and ask for the withdraw of the torch relay in Til


mony. "We strongly encourage
our athletes to participate in
opening ceremonies," said U.S.
Olympic Committee spokesman
Darryl Seibel. "It is a tremen-
dous honor to walk into the
Olympic Stadium behind the
flag of your nation, and to do so
in a ceremony honoring and cel-
ebrating athletes from around
the world."
The violent protests in Tibet,
the most serious challenge in
almost two decades to China's
rule in the region, are forcing
governments and human rights
campaigners to re-examine their
approach to the Aug. 8-24
games.
Human Rights Watch, which
has not been pushing for a boy-
cott, may soon change its stance
and urge heads of state not to
go to the opening ceremony,
said Sophie Richardson, the
New York-based group's Asia


advocacy director. So far, the
group has been suggesting that
foreign leaders "think long and
hard" about whether they want
to seen alongside China's lead-
ership, she said in a telephone
interview.
"Their presence at the games
is going to be represented and
reported by the Chinese gov-
ernment as a sign of approval,"
she added.
Prince Charles has already
said he will skip the Olympics.
He supports Tibet's spiritual
leader, the Dalai Lama, who
has been living in exile since an
uprising against Chinese rule in
1959. Hollywood director
Steven Spielberg also withdrew
in February as an artistic advis-
er to the opening and closing
ceremonies, saying China had
not done enough to halt the
bloodshed in Darfur. China
buys much of Sudan's oil and


L.






)lympic Committee, IOC, head-
Int Jacques Rogge to speak up
bet.
supplies many of the weapons
used in the Darfur conflict.
China is trying to stop any
boycott movement from gath-
ering steam. In the governmen-
t's highest-level comment on
the protests in Tibet and neigh-
boring provinces, Premier Wen
Jiabao accused the Dalai Lama
and his supporters of orches-
trating the violence to taint the
Olympics.
"The Beijing Olympics will
be a grand gathering for peo-
ple from around the world,"
Wen said. "We need to respect
the principles of the Olympics
and the Olympic Charter and
we should not politicize the
games."
The International Olympic
Committee has been forced to
lobby against boycott calls and
the possibility of the games
turning into a political demon-
stration.

transforms and dies. A place given to control, take over, to occupy.
* Your purpose, assignment for your life, It is what God has ordained
and put within you to possess, control, transform, take over, inherit
and love.

WHAT IS YOUR CITY?
* Your City is a reflection of who and what you are. It is the
community you live in, grew up in. It is Relationships, Marriages.
Families, Men, and Women.
* It Schools, Youths, Children, Gangs. Drug & Alcoholic Addicts.
Prostitutes.
* It is the Homeless, Abused women, Battered wives, feeding the
poor.
* When you begin to understand the work of your city, nations will
be transformed.

FORGIVENESS:
* It is the God given ability to release someone who has hurt or
harmed you.
* It is the God given ability to forget the hurt and hold on to the
experience.
* It releases the blessing of God on your life.
* Without Forgiveness your prayer and fasting life will be affected.
* Without Forgiveness your Relationship will be affected and
eventually your life will be destroyed.
* If your life is base on what others have done to you in the past.
You have failed God, yourself and the city He has given you to
take over.

THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT FORGIVENESS:
GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU:
* He knows that men fail, failure will come. Proverbs 24:16
* God wants you to take the city He has given to you.
Psalm 37:23-24

YOU MUST FORGIVE YOURSELF:
* You must recognize your sin before God, so He can restore you.
* Many people are stuck because they don't want to deal with
themselves. So they can not move any further. They are no help
to anyone.
* If you forgive yourself God will turn it around in your life.

YOU MUST FORGIVE OTHERS:
* Matthew 18:27

FORGIVENESS FROM YOU MUST BE RELEASED IN THE
CITY;
* It is your responsibility to reach God, its God's responsibility to
respond.
* When Forgiveness is in your life something begins to happen in
your city.
SWorks of the Flesh is bind up; Fruit of the Spirit is loosed in the
city.

PRAYER
"Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I confess right now, and realize
that I am a sinner. I repent of all my sins. I change my heart, my mind,
my direction and I turn toward Jesus Christ. I confess with my mouth
that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead, and I believe in my heart
that Jesus Christ is alive and operates in my life. I thank you Lord that
I am saved. AMEN"

'A great parade'


* By PASTOR WILBUR OUTTEN
Senior Pastor
Freeport Bible Church

Text: John 12:12-28
REFLECTING on Jesus' tri-
umphant entry into Jerusalem on
that first Palm Sunday over 2,000
years ago, it is interesting to note
that people then, as they are today,
seem fascinated with parades.
It was some 2,000 years ago, our
Bible tells us. when a great parade
along the streets of the ancient city
of Jerusalem, attracted a massive
crowd. That was the first "Palm
Sunday".
Josephus. a noted Jewish historian,
estimated that close to two million
people were likely involved in the
Passover Feast that was taking place
in Jerusalem that weekend. Jesus
used this opportunity to make his
entrance into the city of Jerusalem
for the last time before his crucifix-
ion fulfilling the prophecy that had
been told by Zechariah thousands of
years before, behold your King will


come riding on a colt, the offspring of
a donkey.
Jesus made this grand entrance as
the King of the Jews. the Saviour of
the world. There was so much excite-
ment in Jerusalem that morning as
people took of their clothes, spread-
ing them in the streets and singing to
the top of their voices, "Hosanna,
Hosanna, in the highest, blessed is he
who comes in the name of the Lord."
Ironically, some in the parade singing
Hosanna, which means 'save now',
were amongst the mob shouting,
"crucify him" that Thursday and
Friday.
As we take a closer look at the
crowd we see:
The motive of the crowd
Why were all those people follow-
ing Jesus on the para.', ? There were
four groups of people in the crowd
and as we examine them, we will no
doubt find people like ourselves and
those around us.
The Scoffers
These were the people like the

Roman Soldiers who laughed with
scorn as Jesus rode through the
streets on a colt. In their opinion, if
he was really a king he would have
come riding on a white horse with
golden chariot. They laughed at
Jesus and also at the people worship-
ping him singing, "hosanna to the
king". There are many scoffers exist-
ing today: people who laugh and
look down at those who choose to
follow Christ.
The Skeptics
A large crowd of Jews, who had
heard about Jesus raising Lazarus
from the dead, went to the parade to
see who this Jesus was. They were
skeptical; this man looked like a
peasant because he was riding a don-
key, but yet he raised a man from the
dead. Who is he? Could he really be
a king? We have many skeptics today
who are not sure of Jesus and the
transformation he makes in people's
lives.
The Spectators
There were, no doubt, some who
were there simply for the entertain-
ment and the excitement: their main
purpose was to see what was going
on. There are many in churches
today who are spectators, people
who are just there to see what is
going on and not to get involved.
The Seekers
The text speaks of Greeks who
were in Jerusalem for the feast, who
inquired about meeting Jesus. These
were true seekers, people who want-
ed to meet and get to know Jesus.
Today there are some sincere people


who, because of life's challengers,
are seeking the only Saviour, Jesus
Christ.
The mission of Christ
Jesus rode into Jerusalem that first
Palm Sunday on a mission. He knew
what would happen there. His mis-
sion was three fold:
To die for our sins
For the son of man came to seek
and to save what was lost (Luke 19:10
NIV).
To draw men unto Himself
The Lord is not slow in keeping his
promise, as some understand slow-
ness. He is patient with you, not want-
ing anyone to perish, but everyone to
come to repentance (II Peter 3:9
NIV).
To duplicate His life in us
Jesus wants us to be like Him. He
wants us to be at a place that when
people look at us they see the traits
of a resurrected Saviour: the capacity
to love, forgive and maintain peace.
The message to consider
Ponder these three questions:
1. Is He really a King?
This was the question that puzzled
the people in the crowd. Many peo-
ple today may ask this same ques-
tion. The Bible says that Jesus is the
king of kings, his kingdom has no
end. Earthly kings have limitations,
they are dethroned by adversaries or
they die, however, king Jesus' reign
is eternal. He is "alpha and omega."
He succumbed to death but arose
again ind is now alive forever.
2. Can He really "save now"?
Yes he can! He can take the bro-
ken pieces of your life and put it
together again. The Bible says
"Today is the day of salvation".
3. Is He reigning in your life?
Who is on the throne in your life?
Who is in charge? Is it Jesus or are
you being influenced by the world?
"Hosanna, blessed is he who comes
in the name of the Lord"; He is here,
he reigns for ever and he wants each
of us to be a part of his Kingdom.
His kingdom has no end.
Jesus, a man, who had no sin, was
sent to earth to suffer in such a bru-
tal way just for us. What are you
going to do about it?

'The Passover Lamb,





not an Easter bunny'


* By PASTOR MATTHEW ALLEN
PASSOVER has everything to do
with Yeshuwa Messiah being the sacri-
ficial lamb for the redemption of
mankind and absolutely nothing to do
with the Easter bunny and the Easter
eggs. From ancient times, by way of
religion and paganism, the enemy has
always tried to water down God's
supernatural acts of delivering His
people.
The annual feast of the Passover
commemorated the birth of Israel and
her deliverance from Egypt. The
Passover points forward to the greater
deliverance from the bondage of sin
which was and is still provided for by
the Messiah.
In Exodus 12:1-27, Elohiym, 'el-o-
heem', gave Moses specific instruc-
tions as it relates to the congregation
selecting the Passover lamb.
Exodus 12:5 Your lamb shall be
without blemish, a male of the first
year: ye shall take it out from the
sheep, or from the goats.
:6 And ye shall keep it up until the
fourteenth day of the same month: and
the whole assembly of the congregation
of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
:14 And this day shall be unto you
for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a
feast to the Lord throughout your gen-
erations; ye shall keep it a feast by an
ordinance for ever.
:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleav-
ened bread; even the first day ye shall
put away leaven out of your houses:
for whosoever eateth leavened bread
from the first day until the seventh day,
that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
:16 And in the first day there shall
be an holy convocation, and in the sev-
enth day there shall be an holy convo-
cation to you; no manner of work shall
be done in them, save that which every
man must eat, that only may be done
of you.
:17 And ye shall observe the feast of
unleavened bread; for in this selfsame
day have I brought your armies out of
the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye
observe this day in your generations by
an ordinance for ever.
According to scriptures, the select-
ed lamb was to be thoroughly inspect-
ed to ensure that it was without any
kind of blemish. There were about
three types of inspections that this
lamb went through. The lamb was
selected on the tenth day and went
through three days of inspection to
insure its perfection, and on the 14


Christ of His atonement for our sins,
who was accursed of God as our sin-
bearer; he suffered the agony of spiri-
tual death for us (11 Corinthians 5:21,
Galations 3:13).
Matthew 27:50 Jesus, when he had
cried again with a loud voice, yielded
up the ghost.
From the sixth hour (Noon 3pm)
unto the ninth hour (3pm sunset).
In fulfilling the scriptures (Ex 12:6),
Christ the Passover lamb had to die
during the evening. He cried with a
loud voice, as a shout of triumph and
yielded up His Spirit. In other words,
having borne the wrath of God's judg-
ment against sin, He knew that He
had triumphed over Satan and the
curse of sin.
The origin of the Easter bunny and
Easter eggs began in Germany in the
1500's, where the children were told


day it was to be killed (Exodus 12:3,
6).
When John the Baptist introduced
the Messiah to the people, he recog-
nized Yeshuwa as the fulfillment of
the Passover Lamb (John 1:29).
The arrest and inspection of
Yeshuwa, the Passover Lamb
(John 18:1-40)
:1-12 The Lamb was arrested on
the tenth day
:13 The first inspection by Annas, a
Jewish high priest
:24 The second inspection by
Caiaphas the high priest in office that
year
:28-40 The third inspection was by
Pilate, a Roman official, who, after
inspecting Yeshuwa, said "I find in
him no fault at all" (v 38).
John 19:32-37 Christ, the perfect
lamb, was offered to the Father on the
fourteenth day without blemish (no
broken bones; Ex 12:46, Numbers
9:12).
Mark 15:25 At 9am (third hour)
Yeshuwa had been placed on the
cross.
Matt 27:45 Now from the sixth
hour there was darkness over all the
land unto the ninth hour.
This darkness was a supernatural
act, since an eclipse of the sun at full
noon is impossible. It was during this
time of darkness that God's wrath was
being poured upon His Son.
At the ninth hour Yeshuwa cried
out (v 46). This was Ihe high cost to


that if they were good, that the
hare/bunny would bring them eggs on
Easter.
Many of the biblical Holy days have
been compromised and contaminated
through erroneous religious beliefs
and holidays.

who hath bewitched you, that ye
should not obey the truth, before
whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evi-
dently set forth, crucified among you?

Can we identify with the Passion of Christ?


* By MRS KENRIS L CAREY
President of the Bahamas
Conference of the
Methodist Church

IT is my joy and privilege to greet
you at this time of Lent as we
approach the joyous Easter weekend.
For many people in the Bahamas
this is a time of celebration, beaching
activities, picnics and buying fish.
Many though, will go to church on
Good Friday and on Easter Sunday
remembering so well the great sacri-
fice that Jesus made for the whole
world.
Some years ago Mel Gibson pro-
duced the movie, "The Passion of
Christ". I went to see the movie and I
was deeply affected by the depth of
agony and suffering that Jesus
endured for me. Maybe you also saw
the movie and were affected in a sim-
ilar way.
I want to suggest to you at this time
of contemplation and prayer that
much of the passion of Jesus was
intertwined in his life of ministry and
in his compassion for others.
Throughout the Gospels, we see a
man involved in the lives of other


people; bringing hope to the hopeless,
help to the helpless and comfort to
the sorrowing.
Jesus' ministry was one filled with
passion for other people. Whether he
was raising the dead, healing the sick,
feeding the hungry or cleansing the
leper, his work on earth was one of
compassion. Passion is tied up in com-
passion. I don't think it is possible to
be passionate without having compas-


sion.
Easter is a good time to look at the
areas in our lives where we feel pas-
sion. What are we passionate about?
Do you think your passion would
take you to the point of making a sac-
rifice for others in the way that Jesus
did?
I am thinking today that so many of
our church leaders and so many of the
Christian people in the Bahamas live
from week to week without doing a
single thing for someone else.
It's interesting that on the television
recently there was a programme
where people were staged to act like
they were poor or in trouble or with-
out shoes etc. Passersby were video-
taped to gauge their reaction to the
needy ones on the wayside (it was a
modern day interpretation of the
story of the Good Samaritan).
In the programme, some people
stopped and others did not. Some had
passion for the poor and suffering
ones and others just passed them by.
One of the conclusions the pro-


gramme made was that the people
who were not in a hurry would always
be the ones to stop and help.
Maybe that is a clue for us. We are
so busy doing the work of the church
and attending to our own business
that we do not have time to help
someone else. And, you know as well
as I do, that there are hundreds and
thousands of needy people in the
Bahamas.
Will you help someone this Lenten
Season? The lines of the song are
going through my head as I write..."if
can help somebody as I. walk
along...then my living shall not be in
vain."
Christ died. His passion for the lost
took him to the cross. It is that "Man
of Sorrows" that we worship this
week. Help carry the cross in Nassau
and throughout the Bahamas.

I leave you with this question:
Must Jesus bear the cross alone?

I hope and pray that you will 'take
up your cross and follow Him'.

May God bless you in many abun-
dant ways.


We will celebrate 'greatest of all feasts' on Christian Church's calendar Sunday


* By CLEMENT JOHNSON

CAN you believe it, today is Holy Thursday, and
tomorrow is Good Friday, but on Sunday we will
celebrate the greatest of all feasts in the Christian
Church's calendar. That is the day that changed
man's salvation history. It is the day that shook
redemption up and around, because it opened the
doors to allow men access to the Father's kingdom.
Mary, Jesus' mother, and Mary Magdalene were
all shook up Easter morning. They believed in
Jesus. Jesus' mother believed when the angel
Gabriel came to tell her that she would bear a son
who would be the messiah. She believed when the
shepherds and wise men came to worship him.
Mary Magdalene also believed. She had been pos-
sessed by demons who tortured her soul. Jesus
freed her of the emotional torment that she lived in.
He gave her the joy of knowing the Heavenly
Father's love.
Then he died. How could the one who brought
others back to life die? Jesus was the Messiah, the
Saviour sent from God. Who would save them now
that he was dead. It was emotionally devastating.
The disciples, I am sure, were just as shook up. It
was bad enough that he died, but the way he died.
Like a common thief, publicly humiliated and
degraded. Jesus had calmed the raging sea before
their eyes, but a sea of hatred had overcome him.
Jesus was supposed to save them from the oppres-
sion of Rome and now Rome had killed him.
Still shaken by the events of the previous Friday,
Mary and Mary Magdalene began to walk to the
tomb to pay their respects to the dearly departed.


At this point God decided to shake things up a lit-
tle. Suddenly there was an earthquake and the
,ground shook. This happened because an angel of
the Lord had descended from heaven, and the angel
had rolled the stone away from the tomb.
When the angel appeared in its bright raiment the
guards trembled. They shook with fear. Those
strong soldiers, comrades of the ones who had
nailed Jesus to the cross, now cowered in fear.
Matthew says they became like dead men. I sup-
pose he means that they fainted. But Matthew has
chosen his words carefully. The one who had been
dead, Jesus, was now alive, and the ones who had
killed him were like dead men. And God shook
things up turning the powers of this world on their
heads. Quickly the angel reassured the women.
Don't be afraid, I know you come looking for Jesus,
but he is not here. He is risen, just as he said. Go tell
the disciples to meet him in Galilee.

Shaken

The women were still shaken, but now they were
also joyful. Just as the angel had told them, they
went to tell the disciples. They may not have fully
believed, but they still went. As they went they
came face to face with the reality of the resurrec-
tion. And Jesus said, Go tell the followers to go to
Galilee and they will see mie too.
Easter is all about God shaking up the current
order of things to create a new order. As Matthew
tells the story, Easter started with an earthquake.
An earthquake that turned the world as we know it
upside down. No longer was death the end. For


those who followed Christ is was a new beginning.
The tomb became a womb bringing forth new life.
But this was no mere earthquake that rocked
physical structures. It also rocked and toppled prin-
cipalities and powers. Those who thought they had
triumphed over God's Messiah were shaken. Rome
had failed to hold Christ down. They had tried to
nail him down. They had tried to shut him up with
guards and a stone. But he still rose triumphantly.
Even the powers of darkness and death could not
triumph over Christ.
This was also a life quake. It shook people to the
soul. Those who had chosen death were now like
dead men. But those who had chosen life in Christ
were celebrating the resurrection. God's life quake
had given new life and hope to faithful people who.
moments before, had been mourning the dead.
Does your life need a divine earthquake, a life
quake? Are there things that need to be shaken up
or are out of place? Maybe attitudes of complacen-
cy. Maybe structures of sin and selfishness. Maybe
something other than Christ needs to be shaken
from the throne of your heart.
Maybe your whole world needs to be shaken and
turned upside down. Do you live in a world of dark-
ness that needs some light? Like the disciples are
you mourning in a state of hopelessness? Do you
need something to turn your deadness into life?
Jesus the Christ is a mover and shaker. He takes
the deadness of our lives and makes it alive again.
He turns death into life. darkness into light, cries of
mourning into shouts of joy. Come to Christ. and let
the resurrection shake your world. Let Christ shake
you to your very heart and soul.

'I pray that more persons will celebrate Easter



as God's wonderful removal of barriers'


* By ARCHBISHOP DREXEL
GOMEZ

THE human quest for wellness,
wholeness and fulfillment has been
plagued with the reality of barriers of
various dimensions including the psy-
chological, spiritual and the material
areas of existence. In particular, the
barriers experienced in interpersonal
relationships have played a major
role in humankind's long search for
wholeness.
The message of the Bible is that this
human quest is futile because God
and God alone is able to provide the
object of the human quest. The God
revealed in the Bible brought the
entire creation into being (including
humankind) and the bulk of the bibli-
cal revelation is concerned with
God's attempt to remove the barriers
created by humankind's rebellion and
disobedience.
God's outreach for. our salvation
reaches its climax in Jesus whose
entire ministry demonstrated total
loyalty and obedience to the Father's
will even in the face of death. Saint
Paul described this in the second let-
ter to the Corinthians, In Christ God
was reconciling the world to himself


(5:19).
In the Christian tradition, Easter
marks a joyful and thankful celebra-
tion of God's mighty act in raising
Jesus from the dead as the beginning
of His new creation. At the heart of
this new creation is the removal of the
barrier caused by humankind's sin.
The Risen Jesus is God's confirma-
tion of Jesus as "the way, the truth
and the life" and all who believe in


him are privileged to participate in
this new way of living after the man-
ner of Jesus.
St Paul describes the situation as
follows, So if anyone is in Christ, there
is a new creation: everything old has
passed away; see, everything has
become new! As a result of Jesus' tri-
umphant victory over sin and death,
the barrier to wholeness and fulfill-
ment have been removed and
humankind, in union with him, are
enabled to experience this new way of
living in which we are reunited with
God and with one another.
Our authentic celebration of Easter
requires a commitment to the Risen
Christ, and the way of life be demon-
strated so faithfully in his ministry.
Too many members of the church are
content with an 'outward' celebration
without any commitment to Christ
and his saving mission.
In the Bahamas and the Turks and
Caicos Islands, the failure of mem-
bers of the Church to embrace the
new life offered in Christ creates a sit-
uation in which many barriers contin-


ue to prevent us from experiencing
the wholeness that God offers in
Jesus. I refer especially to three areas
of our common life.

In the first instance, I draw atten-
tion to the continuing disharmony
created by a fanatical commitment to
a partisan political affiliation. This
state of affairs creates a barrier that
prevents consensus on issues that
impact national well being.

Secondly, I refer to the numerous
barriers created in interpersonal rela-
tionships and especially in the
increase in the breakdown of mar-
riage and family life.

Thirdly, I refer to the social dete-
rioration that is taking place in
response to an overemphasis on
materialism, the departure from
established moral norms and the
inequitable distribution of our mate-
rial resources.

I pray that more persons will cele-
brate Easter as God's wonderful
removal of barriers and commit to the
removal of all barriers, to wholeness
and fulfillment in our communities.

TODAY is Holy Thursday, three days to Easter
Sunday. We have gone through the Lenten experi-
ence, kept a 'true lent' and acknowledged our good.
We are children of God. We have feasted on this
truth for the last 40 days and have given up a lot of
"baggage". We have prepared ourselves for the glo-
rious resurrection of our spiritual selves on Easter
morning.
The awareness of our oneness with God contin-
ues to give us reason for apparent struggle as we
work with acceptance of our good. Has it been that
you have struggled all your life with living the good
life? Calling into expression the desires of your
heart?
Have you looked at others and wondered if the
good you perceived for them was missing in your
world? Then -prepare yourself to rise upon those
limiting thoughts as you, in silence, remind yourself
of who you are a child of God.
That thought may make you sweat as you tear
away the beliefs of the past, but sweat, and contin-
ue to pray. Say it over and over until it becomes
"flesh of your flesh, and bone of your bone".
I am a child of God worthy of all good and that
includes, good health, wealth and good relation-


ships.
If any of us find ourselves in the garden, feeling
alone, struggling with releasing some of the beliefs
that now appear as things we have held so near and
dear to us, but that we know no longer serves us
well, we can let it go.
We all experience the 'Garden of Gethsemane',
but know that you will get through it. By prayer and
contemplation of all the good that God is, we con-
tinue to accept that we are worthy of whatever it is
that we seek. A peaceful Bahamas, loving relation-
ships, abundance in all things.
Gethsemane is a garden outside of Jerusalem, at
the foot of the Mount of Olives. Metaphysically,
Gethsemane is "the struggle that takes place within
the consciousness when truth is realized as the one
reality."
Feelings of agony are often experienced in giving
up our cherished idols (money, cars, designer
clothes, important positions in society, etc). As we
release attachment to the material we know that
they are good and serve their purpose as channels.
We leave the garden, go through the crucifixion.
Jesus, knowing that he was about to be crucified,
went to Gethsemane, knelt down, and prayed.
"Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from
me; yet, not my will but yours be done." In his
anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat


became like great drops of blood falling down on
the ground (Luke 22:42, 44).
The word "Gethsemane" comes to mind when
going through what appears to be rock bottom
experiences. After Gethsemane there is Calvary.
We nail it all to the cross and as painful as the expe-
rience may be, it too must past. We must let it go in
order to move ahead. Let go of the need to have
others go through your experience with you. It is a
walk you must take alone. Just know Easter comes.
Easter comes and we rise again. Know that we
pass through these experience as we grow. Growth
is always taking place, therefore giving up is not an
option. We live in the knowing that God is perfect-
ing himself in us. During those times of opportuni-
ty, which some want to label 'hard times' we might
find ourselves filled with feelings of anguish.
SLike Jesus, we experience the impulse to pray.
SStay in the position of prayer until peace comes and
you say Dear God, not my human will, but your will
be done, knowing that your will can only be what
will serve the highest good of all. Until next week...
The Universal Truth Ministries is a Bible-based
ministry for thinkers. We are a teaching ministry and
we invite you to join us in our classes Monday -
Thursday, 7pm to 9pm.
Please visit us at Church on Sunday at 10:15am

'Why Jesus had to die'


* By DR MYLES MUNROE
Senior Pastor
Bahamas Faith Ministries
International

IN light of the recent deep concern
in our community over the unaccept-
able rate of violent crimes, especially
murders and homicides, the cry for
justice and safety continues to rise.
One of the major points of contro-
versy is the cry for the death penalty.
There are many on death row wait-
ing their day of dome.
As I thought about this situation
and the season we are in, Easter, I
also realized that mankind, as an
entire species, was rendered guilty of
the ultimate crime and sentenced to
death by the Judge of the universe,
in the court of eternity for the crime
of treason.
This judgment is detailed in the
words of the creator in Genesis 2,
The day you eat from this tree you
will surely die. In essence, mankind
was placed on death row after violat-
ing the law of God. This is the heart
of the story of Good Friday. It was
the day the divine King of heaven


decided to come down to the prison
of earth and walk into death row, sit
in the electric chair, or take the
noose from around the necks of
humanity and place it around his.
neck.
He took us from the table of death


and lay himself down and took the
needle for us all. In fact, the death of
Jesus Christ was the greatest act of
substitution in history, making it pos-
sible for all mankind to go free from
the penalty of death. The heart of
Easter is that no man took his life,
but Jesus freely laid it down in our
place.
The controversial movie by famed
actor and producer Mel Gibson,
stirred the fires of a global discussion
in response to his block-buster icon,
"The passion of the Christ". as the
world once again entered the special
week celebrating the Passion of Jesus
Christ.
For over four months after its
release, the world-wide media
including CNN, Fox Network, ABC,
CBS, BBC and even our local sta-
tions throughout the Caribbean
joined in the debate.
One of the major,points of con-
tention was the implication derived
by many from the movie that the
Jews were presented as the principle
cause and instigators of the death of
Jesus Christ. It was felt that this
group of people was magnified as the
culprits and the Roman government
authorities were simply the mecha-
nism used to execute their desires.
This argument has been perpetrat-
ed for hundreds of years, and in
some cases at different times in his-
tory, has been used by the Christian
church to justify an antagonistic atti-
tude toward the Jewish people.
However, as I sat for days listening
to the media with their numerous
guests, some claiming to be experts
in the subjects, and others with no
clue to the gravity of the issue, trying
to answer and explain a divine activi-
ty from intellectual, finite concepts, I
was amazed at even some of the reli-
gious leaders who were drawn into
the argument with little more to add
than commentary on the words of
those who were already confused.
I have learned over the years in
my own search for truth that when it
comes to biblical questions the
answers are always contained within
the bible itself. It is no different with
this question of who really killed
Jesus.
As we celebrate this holy season of
Easter, the thoughts of the global
community of millions of Christians
and others focus on this critical story
and records of the events of this
week two thousand years ago.
There is no event in history that is
the topic of more mystery, confusion,


discussion and argument than the
death, burial and resurrection of
Jesus Christ. However, in order to
answer the question, "Who killed
Jesus?" it is more important to ques-
tion the question.
It is my contention that the ques-
tion itself is not the correct question,
because the issue is, "was he
killed?".
According to the scriptures and all
the prophecies, and the declaration
of Jesus Christ himself, it is my con-
clusion and also the biblical declara-
tion that Jesus was not killed by man
or anyone human entity. In fact
'Good Friday', occurred long before
the creation of man and thus
Mankind could not be responsible for
the death of Jesus. Let's take a brief
look at a few scriptures that speak
for themselves:
Rev 13:8-9
:8 And all that dwell upon the
earth shall worship him, whose names
are not written in the book of life of
the Lamb slain from the foundation
of the world. KJV

Isaiah 53:4-5
:4 Surely he hath borne our grief,
and carried our sorrows: yet we did
esteem him stricken, smitten of God,
and afflicted. KJV

Isa 53:10-54:1
:10 But the LORD was pleased to
crush Him, putting Him to grief; If
He would render Himself as a guilt
offering, He will see His offspring, He
will prolong His days. And the good
pleasure of the LORD will prosper in
His hand.
:11 As a result of the anguish of
His soul, He will see it and be satis-
fied; By His knowledge the Righteous
One, My Servant, will justify the
many, As He will bear their iniquities.
:12 Therefore, I will allot Him a
portion with the great, and He will
divide the booty with the strong;
Because He poured out Himself to
death, and was numbered with the
transgressors; Yet He Himself bore
the sin of many, and interceded for
the transgressors. NAS
A careful review of these scriptural
texts will show clearly that the death
of Jesus Christ, indicated here as the
Servant of God, was not the result of
a carefully devised human scheme or
concoction, but was a deliberate, pre-
destined, pre-determined divine deci-
sion by the creator in his redemptive
programme to restore all mankind to
his perfect will. Happy Easter!

'...We must go wherever Christ leads us and



proclaim Him King of Kings and Lord of Lords'


* By REV JAMES MOULTRIE

Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is the One who comes in the
name of the Lord
(Matthew 21:9).

MATTHEW'S account of the entry
of Jesus into Jerusalem on what we
now call Palm Sunday can be divided
into two parts: the direction given by
Jesus to the disciples to procure the
colt on which He would ride into the
holy city, and His actual entry in the
regal setting which bespoke His king-
ship. The symbolism here is tied up in
His royal Messianic traditions as out-
lined in the Old Testament.
Notice that Jesus did not enter the
city on foot like a pilgrim or on a
horse which suggests human majesty,
but on a colt (the foal of a donkey)
which had never before been so used,
which spoke to His great humility in
accordance with Zachariah 9:9. Jesus
knew exactly what He was doing and
was in complete control of events. He
knew in advance what He needed to
do and what was available to Him.
Jesus began the journey into
Jerusalem from Bethpage, a village
east of Jerusalem. In Matthew there is
described a dramatic scene of Jesus
coming over the crest of the hill near
the Mount of Olives, a place long


associated with the appearance of the
Messiah (Zachariah 14:4).
The people along the path, know-
ing what was happening, spread their
clothing and palm branches on the
ground on which Jesus was travelling
(II Kings 9:13), and they praised Him
with an acclamation taken from
Psalm 118:26. This Psalm is a blessing


that became part of the liturgical
greeting of those who met pilgrims as
they entered the temple. This time
the bystanders directed their accla-
mations to Jesus in what might be
described as paying homage and not
just the regular greeting given to pil-
grims.
In this glorious and spectacular
event Jesus is proclaimed the fulfill-
ment of the Davidic Messianic expec-
tations. This is the reason for the
exclamation: "Blessed is He who
comes in the name of the Lord;
Hosanna in the highest."
The people who greeted Jesus on
that first Palm Sunday recognized
Him as the prophet from Nazareth. It
was also a reference to the prophetic
figures of Israel (John 1:21), but also
as the expected Messiah.
As we focus on the sacred time of
Holy Week and prepare for Good
Friday and Easter Sunday, we look at
the significance of the events of Palm
Sunday. Today, we relive those pre-
cious moments when the people
recognized who Jesus really was, the
fulfillment of Old Testament proph-
esy about the coming of the Messiah.
Like them, we recognize and cele-


brate Jesus as our Lord and Saviour.
But from the story we get a closer
look at what kind of Saviour He is. St
Paul describes Him as taking the form
of a slave, emptying Himself and giv-
ing His life for us on the cross. We
have a Saviour who was crushed for
our iniquities, nailed to a cross as a
convicted felon, and who endured the
sense of abandonment on our behalf.
The best way to celebrate Holy
Week with Jesus is to do so in the
company of those with whom He fre-
quently identified: the poor and bro-
ken; the humiliated and the marginal-
ized; those who suffer in silence with
the abuse of others; and those who
never use rank or social/economic
status to enforce their will upon oth-
ers.
If we are to be saved, we must go
where salvation takes place: in the
streets and in the homes of our nation
where crime rages on; wherever the
innocent are abused daily or the
needy neglected; wherever there is
misunderstanding, fear or jealousy.
We must go wherever Christ leads
us and proclaim Him King of Kings
and Lord of Lords. That is what we
do as we proclaim Jesus, the Messiah.
Today we celebrate Holy Week in
the right frame of mind as we prepare
for the resurrection of our Lord and
King on Easter Sunday.

"Jesus For All And All For Jesus"


* By REV ANGELA BOSFIELD
PALACIOUS
IN the Ezekiel 37 passage describ-
ing the valley of dry bones, the
prophet is told, prophesy to these
bones, and say to them: 0 dry bones,
hear the word of the Lord (v 4).
These bones represent the House of
Israel in exile in Babylon. They have
lost all hope and have been cut from
their homeland. This vision of
restoration when the bones come to
life is the foundation for our words to
our people.
The miracle of the raising of
Lazarus to life (John 11) is one of the
New Testament re-enactments of the
valley of dry bones except that he has
been dead for four days. Our Lord
weeps with compassion for our grief
and pain even as he is moved by the
tears of Mary and her friends.
Jesus then acknowledges the power
of God His father to bring Lazarus
back to life and prays for the sake of
those around Him, calling in a loud
voice: "Lazarus come out!" When he
comes out bound by strips of cloth.
the Lord commands the people near-
by to unbindd him, and let him go."
The difference between this situa-
tion and the resurrection of Jesus
Christ is that Lazarus will die again
later. When Jesus Christ, our
Crucified Saviour and Lord, rises
from the grave on Easter morning.
death is conquered once and for all
and we are all now eligible to live for-
ever more. If we allow God to change
us on the inside then we are ready to
be sent to go and change Gods world
around us.
STo whom do we go? We can go to
the person who feels lost and hope-
less. one who is bound up in a tomb
of guilt, shame, regret or despair or
one whose life is as empty and unpro-
ductive as dry bones.
What do you say? Tell them what
God has done for you. Challenge
them to hear the Lord's word as a
word of forgiveness, of mercy and
redemption.
Psalm 130 speaks of the blessing of
knowing how to call out to God: Out
of the depths have I called to you, 0
Lord; Lord, hear mv voice;
let your ears consider well the voice
of ny supplication (v 1).
Teach, model, offer to those who
are in need of new life. Let them
know of our moments when our well
runs dry, and what God did to give us
living water, and how God continues


to sustain us daily.
This is good news for someone who
is still in the depths of darkness.
Rather than depend on drugs, alco-
hol, pills, sex, shopping, food or some
other compulsive or addictive behav-
iour to try to get out of the pit, our
word is that the Lord saves. The Lord
rescues. It is Jesus Christ who causes
us to be loosed and set free.
Romans 6:16-23 speaks to the
human condition using the metaphor
of slavery requiring obedience to a
master. It is our choice whether the
master is sin leading to death or
God's righteousness which results in
eternal life. The Holy Spirit provides
a sanctification process to enable us
to become more like Jesus Christ and
to affect the world as He did.
Dorothea "Billie" Johnson. a
Bahamian who recently died in New
York at the age of 95. was one of
those great women of God, and a
leader of the church, who modeled
such sanctification. Because of
racism, she had to sit in the back of
the church when she first joined but
patiently trusted God until she even-
tually became a lay reader and chal-
ice bearer.
Other examples are to be found in
books like World Changers: Live to
Serve by Bob Beltz and Walt
Kellested, detailing the struggle of
William Wilberforce and others who
worked for the prohibition of slavery,
and modern examples of other world
changers. All of them are ordinary
people doing extraordinary things by
the grace of God.
Be encouraged and go change your
world.

'Receive Christ as your Saviour and be saved'


* By BISHOP JOHN HUMES
President, Bahamas
Christian Council

For God sent not his son into world
to condemn the world, but that the
world through Him might be saved.
John 3:17

THIS week Holy Week we cele-
brate what is considered the holiest
and most solemn season in the
Christian Church, when we commemo-
rate the passion, suffering, death and
resurrection of Jesus.
To many of us, it is a time that we
attend church, read the scriptures con-
cerning Jesus and eat fish and hot cross
buns, which is traditional. But there is
a trend that is developing in our coun-
try, a trend where many of our reli-
gious seasons are becoming secular or
losing their spiritual meaning.
Our parents and grand parents are
beginning to slow down in the family
discussions and teachings about eter-
nal values and principles, hence our
youth are now questioning these prin-
ciples, which is casting a dim light on
the church.
This perception is now having peo-
ple to question the purpose of Christ in
their lives. They feel that we are out to
criticize or condemn them, and this is


why that spirit of rebellion against our
Christian heritage is being replaced
with a humanistic one, which would
rule out Christ and the Christian
Church.
This message of condemnation is not
the message of Christ and is certainly
not the mission of the church. While
we are like the spiritual gatekeepers of
our nation, we are not the henchmen


set out to make life miserable. Jesus
said, "I have come that you will have
life and have it more abundantly".
Christ came and died so that we can
live meaningful and purposeful lives.
We look around our country and see
the lawlessness and disregard for life
and people, we wonder what went
wrong. We have moved away from
Christ and the Church, and have taken
matters into our own hands, but when
things get out of hand, then we want
Jesus and the Church to step in and put
it back in line.
Because we speak out on issues, it
does not mean that we are condemning
people or policies. If we do not speak
we are accused of being silent and
when we speak we are being critical or
biased. I feel like John the Baptist,
when he said that he is a voice crying in
the wilderness to make the path clear.
We are here to keep that path clear for
the people of our nation and to fulfill
the mission of Jesus Christ.
His mission and message is one of
salvation and freedom from the
oppression of the enemy, which is the
world, the flesh, and the devil. Jesus
came to give us life by dying; to give us


healing by suffering; and to give us
hope by His resurrection. We sing the
song, 'Because He lives I face tomor-
row'. This is the message of Easter and
why Jesus went to the cross. This is the
message of Jesus' resurrection to
assure us that we can rise again regard-
less of how things look. This is Jesus'
message of Easter; this is our mission
as a Church to bring hope to the hope-
less, life to the dying and heaven on
earth to those who are catching hell.
Remember my text, "For God sent
not his son into world to condemn the
world, but that the world through Him
might be saved". God is not out to con-
demn you and neither is the Church.
We are out to save you from the spirit
of condemnation and from enslave-
ment to sin, to save you by pointing
you to Christ, the only person that can
bring salvation.
In Romans we are told that if we
confess the Lord Jesus Christ and
believe in our hearts that Christ has
risen from the dead, we shall be saved.
This is the message of Easter, this is the
mission of the Church.
I challenge you not only to attend
the church of your choice this Easter
season, but to receive Christ as your
Saviour and be saved.
Have a blessed Easter and
Resurrection day.


The significance of Christ's death and resurrection


* By LEONARD A JOHNSON
President, Bahamas
Conference of SDA

Resurrection Story
IT is that time again when Christians
give focus to the death, burial and res-
urrection of Christ. Also, it is the time
that questions regarding the same
evoke much debate and discussions.
For example, some resurrection
skeptics argue, "How can one know for
certain that Jesus rose or existed for
that matter?" Empirical evidence is
what they request and admittedly, that
is not always possible to produce, espe-
cially as it relates to the existence of
God.
It is important to note that the Bible
does not seek to prove God's exis-
tence, but simply declares "in the
beginning God..." (Genesis 1:1); and
Paul adds, "without faith it is impossi-
ble to please God" (Hebrews 11:6).
On the other hand, subjectively,
believers in Christ declare, like Bill
Gaither, "I know He lives, for He lives
within my heart," and that no one can
deny!
To me it is impossible to be a
Christian and not believe in the resur-
rection. Says the Apostle Paul, "If
Christ be not raised then your faith is
in vain" (I Corinthians 15:17).


Resurrection reminder
However, does the resurrection still
feature prominently in our conversa-
tion, preaching and teaching? To focus
on the resurrection of Christ is in
essence focusing on Christ. A classical
book, Desire of Ages, by noted author
Ellen Harmon White, urges all to
"spend a thoughtful hour in prayer
each day on the life of Christ, especial-


ly the closing scenes which take in the
resurrection." It goes without saying
that what we read, meditate upon and
muse over will have an "in kind" effect
upon us.

Resurrection facts
The resurrection spells good news
for Christians as it assures them
because Christ rose, they too will rise
in the first resurrection and live eter-
nally with God.
This promise offers much hope when
one is living in abject poverty or is ter-
minally sick, but when there is pros-
perity and "things are apparently
well", one may not be as focused on
the second coming of Christ that will
result in the resurrection and a "caught
up" experience in the clouds forever to
be with the Lord.
Therefore, it is necessary for
Christians to have a daily reminder of
Christ. In essence, if Christians today
fail to refocus by reading God's word,
the resurrection story will have little
impact. This explains why Adventists
throughout the year preach the resur-
rection as opposed to just a period or
season.


Each day for the child of God there
ought to be a reminder of the fact that
it cost God His Son and that it cost
Jesus His life. What more could heav-
en have given to demonstrate its love
for residents of planet earth? Nothing!
In the words of the great Methodist
John Wesley, "I need no other evi-
dence it is enough that Jesus died and
that He died for me." The Church of
God needs no argument!

Resurrection rebirth
It is my prayer that a resurrection or
rebirth of thinking and decorum will so
permeate our nation that crime and
lawlessness will be reduced.
I also desire a rebirth in caring for
our bodies and pointing out to the
youth of our nation, by precept and
example, their value and worth in the
light of the cross.
I desire a rebirth in our driving on
our streets and respect for authority.
I desire a rebirth for family values,
committing to one's spouse of the
opposite sex, as noted in the book of
Genesis.
I simply desire a rebirth of turning
the eye upon Christ and looking full
into His wonderful face.
It is by looking at Him that we arc
changed and have hope because H,
lives.
