In an exclusive interview with
The Tribune, Mr Wilchcombe

PLP MP Obie Wilchcombe sent out a warning to his fellow par-
ty members not to turn against each other and not to allow those
who continuously switch political allegiance to warp the PLP's
message.
Without naming any names, the former Cabinet minister told
PLP supporters at the party's special public forum on Tuesday
night that they must beware of the damage that could be inflicted
on the party by those persons who "go from party to party."
"We cannot allow (the) negative to destroy our party, we cannot
allow individuals who go from party to party to come in to invade

A CONDO resident next door to Paradise
Island's tallest new apartment block, Ocean
Place, has criticised a Ministry of Works offi-
cial for failing to "do his job" after a block of
metal was allegedly dropped from a crane on
that site onto the roof of the building where she
lives.
However, while confirming he visited the site
to check the damage to her condo block, the
works official has refused to comment further on
the matter and a spokesman for Ocean Place
returning a call left for property developer Al
Ballard has denied the incident ever occurred.

Officers under fire
for authorising
the towing of cars
outside restaurant
By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net
OFFICERS at the Fort Char-
lotte Police Station came under
fire yesterday for authorising
the towing of cars parked out-
side Coconuts Bar and Grill
restaurant on West Bay Street.
Over the weekend, a group
of friends celebrating a birth-
day had their vehicles removed
by wrecker M-3136, operated
by the towing company "Strict-
ly Business" at 1.45am.
Two of these persons were
charged $70 for allegedly having
their vehicles parked "too
close" to the stop light on West
Bay Street. With the area hav-
ing no signs restricting parking
in front of the restaurant, police
station, or Iciban Sushi, the
owners of the vehicles protested
the removal of their cars but
without success.
When asked what legal right
the officers had to remove the
vehicles as it would seem that
no law had been broken, female
officer R768 told this reporter
that she had finished talking and
encouraged him to "go picket
in front of Parliament."

Profits decline
44.3 per cent for
Colina Insurance
COLINA Holdings
(Bahamas), the parent company
of stock-exchange-listed Coli-
nalmperial Insurance, yester-
day announced that its 2007
profits dropped by 44.3 per cent
to $4.366 million, largely due to
an increase in claims paid to
policyholders.
The company earned $7.843
million in profits for the 12
months to December 31. 2006,
but last year experienced an 8.9
per cent increase in funds paid
out to meet policyholder claims,
which totalled $110.24 million.
This offset a 3.6 per cent rise
in Colina Holdings' revenues to
$168.434 million, which was dri-
ven by an increase in insurance
premium revenues and earnings
from the life and health insur-
er's investment portfolio.

Gordon Brown has signalled that
by the end of the 2008 he will use
the law to stop supermarkets'giv-

"The damage single-use plas-
tic bags inflict on the environ-
ment is such that strong action
must be taken," he said in Febru- 0
ary, according to the London
Guardian. "I am convinced we
need to act and the time to act is
now."
Brown may have been
impressed by the success' of his
near neighbour, the- Republic of
Ireland, in its attempt to address


mhe issue. The 1. cents tax put on
the bags in 2002 cut plastic bag
use by 90 per cent in five months
and provided millions of extra
euros in revenue for the govern-
ment.
In the Bahamas, the amount of
waste produced by plastic bags is
doubled by the fact that packing
boys automatically put all items in
two bags a practice that is not
the norm elsewhere.
It can take hundreds of years
for plastic bags to break down,
and when they do toxic particles
seep into soil, groundwater and
the ocean,
Once floating in the open
water, the bags are a particular
menace for sea turtles, whales and
dther marine mammals, which are
known to mistake them for food.

committee member who works
for Dolphin Encounters, a Nassau
harbour clean-up last year netted
3,000 plastic bags in just a couple

"People using green bags is
something that's really, really
attainable. It's actually easier to
use, you fit more of your groceries
in, the baggers are still getting
tips and it's recyclable," she said.
According to Earlston McPhee,
committee chairman, "one of the
most critical things is that
Bahamians don't really under-
stand the detriment of plastic
bags. It goes in the dump or it
flies in the ocean and they don't
see the consequences."
He suggested that a prime
example of why we should seek to
limit what we put in our landfills
was brought to vivid life over the
weekend when New Providence's
city dump caught fire. Residents
of Jubilee Gardens and the sur-
rounding areas were plagued with
nasty fumes for days air pollu-
tion which would have been made
worse by the presence of plastics
which release a toxic odour when

work.," Mr Johnson said.
"GSM offers international

Pleasant Bridgewater's election



court case conditionally rested


Fabulous New Arrivals

* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net
ATTORNEY Philip 'Brave'
Davis has conditionally rested
Pleasant Bridgewater's case in
Election Court, as a debate
emerged yesterday over whether
or not to open the ballot boxes to
determine whether nine people
had voted.
The decision by Ms Bridgewa-
ter to rest her case is conditional
on the receipt of information
from formal witnesses such as
government utility corporations,
along with the resolution of the
issue of who did or did not vote,
said Mr Davis.
He said that once both sides
have received all of this informa-
tion, he will be able to determine
if it is necessary for him to call
representatives of the corpora-
tions to the witness stand.
The parties also attempted to
reach consensus on which voters
actually voted on Ms Bridgewa-
ter's list.
Mr Davis accepted that Abra-
ham Cooper and Widline Lau-
riston did not vote. However,
Fred Smith, Zhivargo Laing's
lead attorney, said that there are

thinks did not vote.
The official marked register of
who voted in Marco City is in the
sealed ballot boxes from the con-
test, noted Mr Davis. This means
that the boxes would have to be
opened in order to retrieve the
information.
Senior Justice Anita Allen
asked if the determination of who
voted or not, could be done dur-
ing a scrutiny if it is ordered.
A scrutiny or recount is
ordered by the court if the num-
ber of votes the court throws out
is greater than the margin of vic-
tory in the last election. Mr Laing
won by 47 votes, therefore at
least 48 votes would have to be
thrown out for a recount to be
ordered.
Mr Smith argued that which
voters the court considered
affects whether or not there is a
scrutiny. If the court, for exam-
ple, orders a scrutiny based on

Burning garbage and traffic pollution


GARBAGE DISPOSAL has always been
a major problem throughout the Bahamas.
From time to time serious fires have erupted
at the site, endangering not only nearby
homes, but the health of residents.
Several years ago we often wondered what
the red glow was on the southwestern horizon
of New Providence, only to be told that it
was the burning city dump.
This burning dump alone could be one of
the Bahamas' major contributions to global
warming. Not, of course, forgetting BEC's
chimneys belching yellow sulphur fumes from
their stacks at Clifton.
Health Minister Dr Herbert Minnis thinks
that recycling and mulching techniques could
play a critical role in eliminating the amount
of garbage being deposited at the sanitary
landfill.
He promised io put a proposal before the
Cabinet to outline how these techniques
could reduce garbage at the site.
He said he has received a report from
local environmental health officials that at
least 40 per cent of the garbage in the
Bahamas can be recycled and 15 to 20 per
cent of that garbage can be mulched. He said
if such a programme were in place mulching
and recycling could remove at least 60 per
cent of the garbage from the site.
If citizens were eqcoqura 4d.4jQ ~t eir
garbage It could also help the programme.
However, whatever is decided, this burning
dump and garbage disposal should receive
top priority.
Another major problem is the number of
vehicles clogging the streets of New Provi-
dence.
Bahamians only have to look at the grime-
covered buildings on Bay Street and the lack-
lustre appearance of greenery in the area to
know the damage the carbon dioxide from
these vehicles is doing to their lungs. And
also the contribution this foul air is making to
global warming.
There are other major problems. For exam-
ple the hours spent in bumper-to-bumper
traffic has reduced production in the work
place. It is increasing road rage; it is also a
serious disruption to family life. At the end of
the day, tired and hungry, a father is trying to
get home to join in the family meal and have
quality time with his children. Instead he sits
in snarled traffic, arriving home tired, hungry,
with frayed nerves in short a bundle of
irritation.


It is also affecting our general health as we
sit inhaling the foul air from the idling motors
of a line of cars in front. And what's the reac-
tion of tourists who, instead of relaxing on a
sunny beach, have to spend so much time
sitting in a taxi in a traffic jam'? When they
talk with feet turned away from the Bahamas,
we shall know.
We know government needs the revenue
from imported vehicles and the car dealers
need the business. But the car problem has to
be considered and some reasonable solution
found, because it is now taking too heavy a
toll on the lives of too many individuals. We
were not put on this earth to sit in traffic and
make a contribution to nothing but pollu-
tion.
Bermuda, an even smaller island than New
Providence, many years ago solved this prob-
lem. At one time cars were completely
banned from the island. However, in 1940
private car ownership, governed by strict
rules, was allowed. One car is allowed per
household and visitors are not permitted to
rent cars. Instead they get around on motor
scooters.
However, Bermuda has one tremendous
advantage over New Providence. It has a
good public transportation system with reg-
ular bus and ferry routes. Its bus network
.,.coyers 11 routes. According to reports the
transport system is efficient and reasonably
priced.
For some time now the Bahamas has been
promised a reliable bus service, travelling to
every section of the island.
So far the plans, if there were ever any,
seem to have vanished.
However, there is another problem that
seems of easy solution if persons most imme-
diately involved would do their jobs. Firstly,
owners should be fined for allowing their
smoke belching buses on the road. Road
Traffic inspectors are slipping badly by renew-
ing the licences of such buses, and the police
are not doing their job when they let these
buses continue on the road.
Many problems could be solved, including
bringing the law to bear on persons littering
roadsides with abandoned cars, if Bahamians
had pride in their island, understood how
these infractions of the law affected their
health and environment and contributed to
global warming.
In other words, whether we know it or not,
we are destroying ourselves.


The PLP needs





a family man





to be leader


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THERE has been some
speculation about the possi-
ble candidates who may be
vying for the leadership of the
PLP.
It has also been rumoured
that the present leader Perry
Gladstone Christie may step
down. Well it may comfort
many PLP that he is finally
planning to "get lost".
The majority of Bahamians
will not soon forget how weak
Mr Christie was.
This was the real reason
why the PLP was "drop
kicked" out of power.
The rejection has sent the
PLP into a tailspin.
They have not been able to
regain their composure since.
The PLP is still shell
shocked after having been cas-
tigated by Kennedy MP Keny-
atta Gibson.
This is proof that at least
one of them had the guts to
say what many of his col-
leagues have been saying
behind the scenes.
Mr Gibson showed that he
has more courage than every
other PLP MP many of whom


pretend that all is well on their
sinking ship.
But as mentioned earlier,
the PLP, if they are serious
about ever gaining the peo-
ple's trust again must begin
by their selection of a new
leader. Everyone would be
waiting with baited breath to
see if they would select some-
one who has an attracted past
or lifestyle.
We would be anxious to see
if the PLP would risk any
chance of regaining the gov-
ernment by gambling on a
candidate with a questionable
past.
We will see if the PLP
would "throw caution to the
wind" and select a candidate
who cannot express what
being a "family man" is.
It is confusing for the
growth of any nation when the
leader is a man or woman who
has had no experience with
raising children and being
responsible for a household.


Because if he has no experi-
ence with this small model of
how a government works, he
will have no feelings how to
deal with people with the
Christian family in mind, thus
leaving the door open to cold
and callous decisions.
But a family man will
always have compassion while
taking the family into consid-
eration.
To put it mildly, a leader
should have a family.
He should have a wife and
family. Otherwise we may not
get a true example to follow,
thus confusing our youth, by
sending the wrong signal.
Therefore the PLP have
their work cut out for them.
They would soon find out how
serious Bahamians are about
unorthodox behaviour and
activity, especially with the
plans of leading this country.
We must all join our forces
together to prevent alterna-
tive lifestyles to infiltrate any
more than they have.

It's time for rhetoric to stop on

both sides of the political divide


EDITOR, The Tribune.
AFTER losing her bid to
have the recent election in
Pinewood overturned by the
Election Court Mrs Allyson
Maynard-Gibson took the
high road and said something
to the effect that she only
went to court to protect our
democratic system.
A friend asked, rhetorically
I'm sure, if she would have
done the same thing had she
won the seat?
It is doubtful she would
have, but it begs the question
that if the PLP knew the elec-
tion process was flawed, why
didn't they correct it after they
won in a landslide in 2002'?
Are they prepared to win
with a flawed process, but not
lose the same way?
I tend to agree with the
position that had the PLP
called the election when Con-
stitutionally mandated, the
errors on the Register of Vot-
ers might not have been so
egregious as they were in the


Constituency of Pinewood.
The Parliamentary.Commis-
sioner and his staff might have
had time to resolve most of
the errors.
. Yes, most of the ,errprp.
There will always be. people .
that try to out smart the sys-
tem and these should be chal-
lenged on polling day when
the poll workers are armed
with the results of the door-
to-door canvassing by the
political proponents as usual.
All that aside, I agree with
the pundits that it is time for
the rhetoric to stop on both
sides of the political divide so
the country can move forward.
The PLP need to drop the
pending cases and the FNM
need to ease up on the
needling.
It seems pointless to contin-
ue to rile citizens up over the
election results. The election is
over. The FNM won and the
PLP lost.
If there are legitimate cases
of fraud, those individuals
should be prosecuted, includ-


ing the bearer of alleged fake
ballots on election day.
Maybe, just maybe, if we
start prosecuting people .for
illegal activity, we will start
~oying citizens toward obey-
ing the law, rather than reck-
lessly ignoring it as so many
of us do.
It's now time to 'move for-
ward, upward, onward togeth-
er' as our motto implores us.
The race is over for a while-
and the checkered flag has
been waved.

Former USF
student convicted
of student
visa violation

M TAMPA, Fla.
A FRIEND of two Univer-
sity of South Florida students
facing federal explosives
charges has been convicted of
violating his student visa,
according to Associated Press.
A jury deliberated about
two hours before convicting
Karim Moussaoui on
Wednesday afternoon.
Federal prosecutors say
Moussaoui went to a shoot-
ing range with the two USF
students who were later
arrested in South Carolina
and charged with transport-
ing explosive devices.
Court documents say
Moussaoui was arrested
because he held a student visa
and was not allowed to pos-
sess or receive a firearm.
Moussaoui's defense attor-
ney has said her client briefly
held a gun but didn't fire it.

Tribune Staff Reporter

WITH the United States
bracing for the possibility
of a deep recession, mem-
bers of the PLP accused
government of failing to
help the Bahamian people
in a time of economic
uncertainty.
Giving a short address
during the PLP's open
forum on Tuesday night,
party leader Perry Christie
said that the Bahamas is not
so much being affected by
the US' sub-prime crisis, as
by a "sub-par crisis."
Mr Christie told PLP sup-
porters gathered at Gam-


bier House that the "state
of Bahamian economy is a
major victim of the lack of
vision by the FNM govern-
ment."
In his view, he said, the
FNM is underestimating the
economic issues and woes
currently being faced by
Bahamians.
He added that during
today's economic climate,
some Bahamians are strug-
gling to put food on the
table.

Plan
Mr Christie said that his
PLP government left the
Bahamas in a good position
with a workable plan for
the future, but that the
FNM squandered all the
opportunities that it inher-
ited in less than a year.
Also taking the stage dur-
ing the open forum, West
and Bimini MP Obie Wilch-
combe lambasted the FNM
administration for shutting
down and delaying invest-
ment projects at a time
when the country is facing
dire repercussions from the
downturn in the US econo-
my.
"The US economy is fac-
*ing the most difficult time
it's had in a long time.
Economists believe that this
will be the worst recession
in its history, worse than
1992, 1986 and worse than
1972. They believe it is
going to be a time when
America has to dig deep to
build itself back up. Many
say that it could last for at
least two years," he said.
Addressing the country's
number one industry, Mr
Wilchcombe said that
tourism's vital signs are not
looking good.
"We left tourism in great


shape. When I became min-
ister of tourism I inherited
a ministry that saw spend-
ing from tourists at $1.75
billion.
"When I left the ministry,
tourists were spending in
the Bahamas more than $2
billion annually. It never
happened in the Bahamas
before and now we're going
backward and they have no
answers.
"Over at Atlantis they are
not doing as good as they
did last year or the year
before that and they tell me
they are concerned about
the next month and the
month after next and the
entire summer. Where are
the answers? Our govern-
ment has no answers. Our
country is in trouble," he
said.

Shortage of public



health and Family



Island pharmacists



to be addressed


* By MATT MAURA
THE Ministry of Health and Social
Development and the Public Hospitals
Authority are "actively working" with the
College of the Bahamas and the Univer-
sity of Technology in Jamaica to address
the need for more pharmacists in the pub-
lic health sector and the Family Islands,
Minister of Health Dr Hubert Minnis said.
Dr Minnis said the ministry and the
PHA are also working with COB to offer
other programmes in allied health in the
very near future.
He said allied health disciplines such
laboratory technology, physiotherapy and
nutrition and health education will be
made priorities.
The discussions, he noted, are a result of
the shortage of allied health professionals
in the Bahamas, a condition which he said
is a global problem.
Dr Minnis pointed out that one of the
challenges facing the profession is that
many Bahamians who leave home to
undertake studies in these areas do not
return because of lucrative employment
opportunities abroad.
"This is certainly one reason for the
shortage we are experiencing and we must
and will do all within our power not only
to attract and train, but also to retain high-
ly competent and motivated allied health
professionals in the healthcare system of
the Bahamas," Dr Minnis said.
He said another reason for the shortage
is that many students who desire to pursue
these careers do not have the math and
science requirements to gain acceptance
into the necessary'programmes.
He pointed out that one of the objec-
tives of the recently launched National
Allied Health Cadet Programme
(NAHCP) is to "effectively address this
issue."
"I am advised that in the first term of
the upcoming school year, the allied health
cadet concept will be introduced as a mag-


net programme in two public secondary
schools that are also magnet institutions,
for math and science," Dr Minnis said.
"The importance of having qualified
persons in these areas of services cannot'
be overstated," he said.
"They are as essential to healthcare and
patient outcomes as are doctors and nurs-
es."

ORLANDO, Fla.
A JAMAICAN man accused
of trying to bring pipe bomb-

show friends in his home country
how to build explosives like he
saw in Iraq, according to docu-
ments released Wednesday,
according to Associated Press.
The FBI was still trying to

Brown, 32, was arrested Tues-

Airport after allegedly checking
luggage for an Air Jamaica flight.
Transportation Security Admin-
istration behavior experts spotted
him acting suspiciously in the
ticketing area and authorities
found the unassembled bomb-
making materials in his bag.
Clarence Counts, Brown's
court-appointed public defender,
declined to comment as he pre-
pared for a formal bond hearing
Thursday.
The FBI said TSA officials
searched Brown's checked lug-
gage before it was put on the
plane. It had two glass bottles of
nitromethane, a colorless liquid
used as a fuel for drag racing, in
manufacturing and as a cleaning
solvent.
The baggage also had galva-
nized pipes, end caps, two small
containers containing BB's, bat-
teries, laptop, and instruction on
how to make bombs, the FBI
said in a court filing.


Claim that preliminary approvals

granted without local consultation


They say preliminary
approvals are being granted
without any local consulta-
tion.
A 150-slip marina at Lyn-
yard Cay, with 100 house lots,
is causing particular anxiety.
Locals are raising a petition
because the project is close to
Pelican Cays Land and Sea
National Park.
There is also concern over a
hotel and marina proposal at
Snake Cay, where several
miles of wetlands are said to
be at risk.
"Central government is not
revealing any details of these
developments to locals," an


islander said last night.
"There is a lot of upset
because this government
promised transparency and
preliminary approvals are
being granted without any
local consultation."
In Marsh Harbour, residents
are angry at not being admit-
ted to a meeting to discuss a
condo project at the ferry
dock.
The press and petitioners
were excluded when Minister
of Local Government Sidney
Collie held a meeting to dis-
cuss the matter last month.
"It's annoying that the
developer, Emerick Knowles,


was allowed to speak, but the
petitioners weren't," said a
source.
Local government repre-
sentatives said they stand by
their decision to give the
three-block condo develop-
ment permission to proceed
in its present form.
Objectors said it was out of
scale and too big for the site.

more than 2.7million slaves
and 280,000 slave owners. This
collection will give thousands
the opportunity to trace their
slave ancestry for the first

exploring their slave ancestry
will now bhe able to combine
both history and science in

registers were originally put
together after slave trading
was made illegal by the Abo-
lition of Slave Trade Act
passed in 1807.
The Act required all colo-
nial territories to keep tri-
yearly registers of slaves and
their owners, allowing the
British government to monitor
slave ownership and prevent
illegal trading.
The records are searchable
by name, estimated birth year
and gender of the enslaved,
or by the name of the slave
holder, as often slaves were
given the surname of their
master.

run for deputy



leader of PLP


FROM page one

would obviously not be seeking
re-election as deputy leader of the
party. That I think threw open the
door for all of us who wanted to
serve in the highest possible posi-
tions in our organization," he said.
Mr Wilchcombe said that he has
always been a part of the. PLP
thought process that believes that
in everything you do, you do it
with "decency, and in order."
"The leader of our party will
announce when that race will take
place. It could be at the conven-
tion, or before the convention.
You never know. But the point is,
you have to prepare.
"I have been told in my life by
great leaders like my father and
Sir Lynden Pindling that you have
to always prepare. Because if you
are not prepared, when the oppor-
tunity comes, you're not ready.
And so, yes, I have begun prepa-
ration to offer myself to assist Mr
Christie in rebuilding the organi-
zation into becoming the next gov-
ernment of the Bahamas," he said.
As the post is likely to be cov-
eted by other persons within the
party, such as MP Frank Smith,
and former Minister of Health Dr
Bernard Nottage, Mr Wilchcombe
said he is impressed with his col-
leagues' talent, but still believes
he is the best candidate to bring
about the kind of change that the
PLP needs.
"I have the capacity to bring all
the players together. I think I have
the capacity to assist in the orga-
nization of our party to win elec-
tions. I think one of my greatest
strengths in this organization is
strategy. I enjoy the process, I
enjoy the work.
"I also know that people are
quite aware that I am a team play-
er. I am an individual who is able
to work with the leader, take
instructions from the leader, and to
do what I have to do for the party
to present itself. And I also believe
that I would be very valuable in


messaging.
"So when you think of what is
required now, what is required is a
team that could rebuild the orga-
nization to make it that machine
that is able to articulate a message
that reverberates and resonates
with the Bahamian people. And it
needs an individual who has a
strategic mind and who is then
able to help the party in dissemi-
nating its message and gathering
the votes required to win the next
general elections," he said.
Mr Wilchcombe pointed out
that he has been chairman of the
PLP for seven years, a Senator for
eight, a Minister for one term, and
is currently a second term Member
of Parliament.


"I think I have been able to trav-
el the spectrum of PLPism. I
understand the Bahamian politics.
I know this country from Inagua to
Bimini and Abaco; all over this
country I am aware of the Bahami-
an people. I believe I connect with
people, I think I come from the
core, the belly, of what PLPism is
all about, and I believe that I have
held true to the values of our par-
ty.
"So I believe that those are dis-
tinguishing characteristics that
allow me to present myself and
ask the people of my party to give
me an opportunity," he said.
The Tribune will be printing part
two of this exclusive interview in
tomorrow's edition.

ships," he said.
Speaking at the event held at Gambier House,
Mr Wilchcombe also said that the PLP cannot
allow the media in the Bahamas to drive a wedge
between the individual members of the party.
"We cannot allow the media, whenever it
wants, to pick us off and to say things about you
and not me, and the next thing you know we
are fighting for no reason.
"We are committed to the PLP and too often
we allow it (the media) to destroy us and to
destroy our vision and to take us off track," he
said.
The West End and Bimini MP emphasised
the importance for the PLP of staying focused on
its mission to better the lives of the Bahamian
people and to regain the government.
"If we stay off track, then the opposition wins.
The FNM gets the benefit and we will be sit-


MP warns PLP

members not to turn

against each other
ting back crying among ourselves hoping for yet
another opportunity, that is why we have to
brush it off and move ahead," he said.
"All of us, those of who serve in the parliament
of this country, who carry the flag of the PLP,
must appreciate that we have much work to do
and we have much further to travel," he said.
"We must ensure that Progressive Liberal Party
organises itself to become the next government
of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas," he said.
The PLP's public forum on Tuesday was held
to discuss the "failed policies, personalities and
lack of imagination in moving the country for-
ward by the governing FNM."

Officers under fire for


authorising the towing of


cars outside restaurant


FROM page one
ered.
The owners of Coconuts, Mr
Eldon Ferguson II and his sons,
Eldon III and Erin, told The
Tribune that this practice of
"haphazardly" towing vehicles
outside of their restaurant has
been going on for more than
two months. They also ques-
tioned why only patrons of their
restaurant were being affected
by this "punitive" action, imply-
ing that there was some attempt
to run them out of business.
"We talked to the Commis-
sioner of Police on Monday and
he has assured us that they will
work with us because what was
happening should not happen.
He said that if there are signs
that needed to be put up, the
Ministry of Works will have to
put them up," Mr Ferguson
said.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Inspector Anthony
Curtis of the Traffic Division
denied the claims of the officers
at the scene on Friday night. He
stated that to the best of his
knowledge, there was no law
restricting persons from park-
ing "too close" to a stop light.
In fact, Inspector Curtis even
questioned the issuance of a $70
fee for the towing of each vehi-
cle. He said that as far as he was
aware unless the law had
changed a person could only
be charged $60 if the police
authorized the towing of their
car.
"The vehicles should not have
been towed. It should only be
towed if it is causing an obstruc-
tion. We don't tow your car, we
wait till the driver comes, or we
notify the driver and you ask
them to move their car and give
them a citation," he said.
However, this was not the
case that the patrons of
Coconuts faced on Friday night.
Not only did the police not
issue a prior warning, or seek
out the owners to remove their
cars, they also failed to issue
any tickets.


"What money is the govern-
ment making from this?" an
onlooker at the scene asked.
"How is it that they can tow
your car without writing you
up? Potentially then, anyone
can move your vehicle and car-
ry it somewhere over the hill,
have it stripped, and no one is
to blame because the wrecker
can say, 'The police told me to
move it!?' Something has to be
wrong with that."
Lawyer Kahlil Parker, who
was one of the persons whose
vehicle was towed, said hlie will







*^ t^K
^^^^^ m


be filing an official complaint
with the Complaints and Cor-
ruption Unit.
"Before you remove my car,
you get the government's mon-
ey.
"You issue a ticket. They did
not take the appropriate steps.
If we did not catch them, we
would not have known any-
thing." he said.
Calls to Assistant Superin-
tendent Sands, who heads the
Fort Charlotte Station, were not
returned up to press time last
night.

$25,000 boost for breast cancer fight


Fundraiser hailed


a huge success


* By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune News Editor
THE Pink Ball fundraiser
and cancer awareness event net-
ted $25,000 and is being hailed
as a resounding success.
The proceeds of the event,
organised by the Inner Wheel
Club of East Nassau, will go
towards the breast cancer pre-
vention efforts of the Bahamas
Cancer Society.
The evening consisted of a
wine reception sponsored by
Bristol Cellars and Prime
Bahamas, a silent auction, a raf-
fle, dinner and dancing with live
entertainment by Modern Vin-
tage. It was held on March 15 at
the British Colonial Hilton.
The Inner Wheel Club, com-
posed of female relatives of
Rotarians, said that one of the
main aims of the event was to
stimulate a greater level of
breast cancer awareness in the
Bahamas.
"As a group of women, breast
cancer has affected each one of
our members in some way.
Whether it's a mother, aunt,
grandmother or friend, we all
know someone who has been
afflicted with this disease," said


incoming president Heather
Peterson. "We discovered that
breast cancer is a major prob-
lem here in the Bahamas and
that there is ongoing research
to try and uncover the cause of
this. We wanted to raise funds
to send doctors to the Out
Islands to perform breast cancer
screenings on underprivileged
women there."
Club secretary Tamsin Cates
added, "Other than raising
funds, our goal is to make
Bahamians aware that Bahami-
an women appear to be at a
higher than normal risk for
breast cancer and accordingly
we should be consistent with
our mammograms and self-
screening. Breast cancer is
affecting women here in their
20s and 30s and early detection
is key."
The ball committee was
chaired by Mrs Peterson. Other
members included: Ms Cates;
new member Melissa Boals,
who headed up the silent auc-
tion; new member Georgina
Webster and club historian and
cancer survivor Linda Brown,
along with the rest of the Inner
Wheel executive committee.
"We are delighted that the

event was such a success and
we are already looking to next
year, as we feel we can use our
momentum to keep attention
on this critical issue." Mrs
Brown said.
Cancer Society of the
Bahamas president Terrance
Fountain attended the ball with
his wife. Addressing the atten-
dees. he stressed that early
detection is critical.
He noted that detection dur-
ing stage one of the cancer car-
ries a survival rate of more than
90 per cent, whereas detection
in stage two carries an only 15
per cent survival rate.
"Breast Cancer in the
Bahamas is by far the leading
cause of both cancer incidence
as well as cancer deaths." Mr
Fountain warned.
He noted that an average of
76 n\ew cases \\crc enticd ind


the Princess Margaret Hospital
registry between 2004 and 2006,
and that two-thirds of these cas-
es were in women between 30
and 60 years old "what should
be the more productive of our
adult years."
"Now, while we in the Can-
cer Society and other organisa-
tions are playing our part, there
is a whole lot more that we in
the Bahamas can all do to be
more effective in reducing the
risks for this disease and hope-
fully the incidence of cancer,"
he said.
Mr Fountain said the public
must be better educated about
the risks involved with various
forms of cancer.
"We must have the recom-

THE TRIBUNE


FROM page 16


THE Inner Wheel club of East Nas-
sau (IWEN) is a member of Internation-
al Inner Wheel, a worldwide network of
service clubs founded by women relatives
of Rotarians.
It is now the second largest women's
service organisation in the world with
more than 104,000 members.
The Inner Wheel constitution is cur-
rently being amended to broaden the cri-
teria for membership to include women
who share the ideals of friendship, per-
sonal service and international under-
standing, but are not relatives of Rotari-
ans.
This year IWEN celebrates 30 years of
service.
IWEN supports through service and
contributions the following charities:
the All Saints Camp
the Sandilands Robert Smith Chil-
dren's Ward
the Fox Hill Community
Sandilands Primary School
Our Father's Business (Exuma)
Project Read
the Cancer Society of the Bahamas
IWEN meets every third Tuesday, usu-
ally at the Nassau Yacht Club from 7pm
to 10pm. The club has a current mem-
bership is 65.
According to an IWEN spokesperson,
members have been pouring their energy
into areas of the community where help is
needed most.
"Over the past year, the hard working
ladies on the executive committee have
decided to focus more on hands-on ser-
vice. They are responsible for the recent
'Go Green Bahamas' campaign and have
sold over 5,000 reusable grocery bags
-throughout the Bahamas," she said.
Club members have been regular visi-
tors at the All Saints Aids Camp, the
Sandilands' Robert Smith Ward and also
host birthday parties for the children at
the Bilney Lane orphanage.
"There are many other areas that these
ladies provide their time and lend a hand.
The Inner Wheel members have discov-
ered that it's not always about donating
money, but sometimes about letting peo-
ple know that someone cares. A hug and
a smile are often all that it takes to make
someone's day brighter," the spokesper-
son said.

and must make these pro-
grammes available to all per-
sons at risk for the disease
throughout the Bahamas.
"To accomplish this, what is
required is better information
on Bahamian cancer patients
that will allow policy-makers
and planners to be more
focused; information on the
types of cancers; associated
behavioral or environmental
factors; health utilisation pat-
terns, et cetera," he said.
Mrs Peterson thanked Mr
Fountain and said she and her
fellow members hope that the
A ball marks the beginning of a
positive and productive rela-
/ qtionship between the two clubs.
Following Mr Fountain's
S( remarks, a number of impromp-
tu speakers took the podium,
including breast cancer survivor
Joanna Robertson, who gave a
brief but powerful address that
visibly moved her listeners.
She recounted how she
underwent a mammogram one
year and was fine, but only a
year later, was found to have a
tumor in her breast which had
already begun to spread.
Mrs Robertson stressed that
if she had waited any longer to
have the second mammogram,
she wouldn't be standing there
in front of the guests.
The silent auction featured
many unique prizes including a
pink Bahama Hand Print quilt
handcrafted by Mrs Robin
Symonette, a member of the
executive committee.
Some of the other auction
items were:
a health package with items

Many attractive raffle prizes
were on offer, including a
Bahamas International Film
Festival (BIFF) director's pass,
hotel stays in Nassau and the
Out Islands and a door prize of
two free tickets on American
Airlines. Melissa Boals, who
organised the raffle and silent
auction, said she was over-
whelmed by the donations that
poured in and the large num-
ber of donors who commented
on how they had been person-
ally affected by breast cancer.
She said the ball was a wonder-
ful experience for her.

Government eyes Flemin



Hutchison GBPA owners


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
The Government is eyeing
a solution to the Grand
Bahama Port Authority
(GBPA) ownership dis-
pute that would involve
Hutchison Whampoa purchasing the
late Edward St George estate's 50 per
cent stake and potentially becoming
equal partners with Fleming, The Tri-
bune can reveal.


Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham is
understood to be keen on such a devel-
opment, contacts familiar with devel-
opments in the GBPA saga told The
Tribune yesterday, and was said to
have met with Chris Gray, the Freeport
Container Port's chief executive and
Hutchison's 'point man' in its own bid
to acquire the Port Authority, at his
office at 11am yesterday.
The prospect of any joint 50/50 ven-
ture with Hutchison when it came to
the GBPA's ownership is unlikely to


be acceptable to Fleming, informed
sources told The Tribune, and it would
probably withdraw from its acquisition
bid if it was unable to obtain 100 per
cent control.
Indeed, it is understood that any
acquisition of the St George estate's
50 per cent stake by Hutchison could
effectively act as a deal breaker for the
UK-based private wealth management
and private equity firm with regard to
its own attempt to acquire the other
50 per cent GBPA stake controlled by


Sir Jack Hayward's family trust.
The Tribune has been told that as
part of the agreement in principle that
Fleming signed with Sir Jack's trustees
to acquire the stake for $100 million
was an agreement that the UK-based
company would enter into no deals
involving Hutchison as regards the
GBPA.
There is another reason why Fleming
is likely not to want to become a 50/50
partner with Hutchison Whampoa
when it comes to ownership of the


GBPA and Port Group Ltd.
This is because Hutchison Wham
poa already owns 50 per cent of th,
Grand Bahama Development Coimpa
ny (Devco), the Freeport Harbom
Company and the Grand Bahama Air
port Company.
Its joint venture partner in these
entities is Port Group Ltd, so if Hutchi
son Whampoa also owned 50 per cent

MORTON Salt is targeting
production of a million-tonne

aging director telling The Tri-
bune it hoped to resume tradi-
tional output levels provided
the weather holds up.
Glenn Bannister said "every-
one is back to normal" at
Inagua's main employer and
economic engine, with its 104
non-managerial staff and 25
supervisors all back on a nor-
mal five-day work week from
the first week in March. This
week marks a month since they

"We're back up to speed and
are trying to build our invento-
ry back to normal," Mr Bannis-
ter said. "We're trying to
replenish the salt stockpile. We
haven't harvested for a long
time.
"Historically, we sell about a

we hope to harvest that amount.
That's our goal. We are shoot-

FORMER minister Leslie
Miller is' "lik the Phoenix rising
from the ashes in Greek
mythology" by resuscitating his
promotion of PetroCaribe, a
Bahamian economic think-tank
warning that this nation's
national debt would increase by
$3.7 billion over 25 years if it
signed on.
Mr Miller, the former minis-
ter of trade and industry,
returned to PetroCaribe, the 'oil
on credit' deal pushed by out-
spoken Venezuelan president
Hugo Chavez. last week after
per gallon of gasoline prices at
Esso stations hit $5 following
the recent oil price spike to over
$100 per barrel.
Mr NIlk r had lamented that
if the Bahamas had signed on to
PetroCaribe, Bahamians would


now be paying no more than $4
per gallon, as this nation would
have been able to purchase oil
from Venezuela by paying only
a fraction of the prevailing mar-


ket price, in addition to cutting
out the wholesaler role paid by
oil companies.
Yet the Nassau Institute said:
"With gas prices rising to $5 per
gallon at the pumps, Leslie
Miller, former PLP MP and
minister of trade and industry
hits the headlines, much like the
Phoenix rises from the ashes in
Greek Mythology.
"What he neglects to pbint
out is that while the price would
supposedly remain lower at the
pumps for consumers, the
Bahamas would be building up
a huge debt with Venezuela,
something like $3.7 billion in 25
Year's according to ; .ik 0l.1lin,

they listen


IN establishing and main-
taining relationships with
clients, commercial, private
and investment banks (and
their officers) may deem it
necessary to document or
record telephone conversa-
tions with these people to
ensure accuracy, quality assur-
ance, and confirm certain
important information.
However, it is important
that banks (and the general
public) are aware of the legal
implications of such action,
and take the necessary precau-
tions to ensure the relevant
notification, consent (express
or implied), authorisation and
approval are obtained prior to
recording telephone conversa-
tions.
Under Section 3(1) of the
Listening Devices Act 1972,
"any person who uses a listen-
ing device to hear, listen to, or
record a private conversation
to which he is not a party shall
be guilty of an offence against
this Act".
Additionally, Sections 4 (1)
and (2) state that: "Subject to
the provisions of subsection
(3) [of Section 3], any person
who communicates or publish-
es to any other person a pri-
vate conversation, a report of,
or the substance, meaning, or
purport of a private conversa-
tion that has come to his
knowledge as a result of the
use of a listening device used
in contravention of Section 3
of the Act" and
....any person, who
having been a party to a pri-
vate conversation and having


Legal


Ease


used a listening device to hear,
listen to or record that conver-
sation, subsequently commu-
nicates or publishes to any
other person any record of the
conversation made directly or
indirectly by the use of a lis-
tening device, shall be guilty
of an offence against this
Act".

It should be noted that the
exceptions to the foregoing
prohibitions under the Act
are:
Where the communication
or publication is made to a
party to the private conversa-
tion, or with the consent,
express or implied, of such a
party.

ably necessary.
Publication is in the public
interest.

cation or publication.

or publication is made for the
protection of the lawful inter-
ests of that person; or to a per-
son who has, or is believed on
reasonable grounds by the
person making the communi-
cation or publication to have,
such an interest in the private
conversation as to justify mak-
ing the communication or
publication under the circum-
stances under which it is made
public.
Where the communication
or publication is made with
the authorisation of the Minis-
ter of National Security or the
Commissioner of Police (in
consultation with the Attor-
ney General).

Banks are advised to inform
their clients that their conver-
sations may be recorded, state
the reasons for such a record-
ing, and obtain their clients'
consent or authorisation, as
and where necessary, for the
recording.
It could be argued that the
client's acceptance of the
recording procedure by con-
tinuing the conversation, after
being informed by the appro-
priate telephone message of
the recording, and his under-
standing and acceptance of the
terms, conditions, policies and
procedures of the bank, would
be sufficient to allow the bank
to fall within the ambit of the
foregoing exceptions to the
Act.
Whatever communication
banks use to notify their
clients and obtain their con-
sent and authorisation to
record their telephone conver-
sations, the communication
should be clear and unequivo-
cal. There should be some
method or means of confirm-
ing that the relevant consent
and authorisation has been
obtained prior to the tele-
phone conversation.

had experienced since the 2006
fourth quarter had left it fore-
casting its 2007 harvest would
be just 4(X),0(X) tonnes, one-third
of the traditional 1.2 million
tonnes it harvested.
August, which was usually the
best month for sale growth,
proved disappointing as Inagua
received just 5.82 inches of rain,
compared to the historic 2.33
inches average. In September
2007, Morton Salt's salt pan
received six inches of rain, com-
pared to the historic average of
four, and in October suffered
6.2 inches of rain.
Morton Salt requires less than
30 inches of rain per year to be
able to produce 1.2 million
tonnes of salt per year, yet
'Inagua received 37.29 inches in
the first nine months of 2007.
As a result, Morton Salt had
run out of salt and been unable
to harvest from November 2007
onwards. The period from
March to August each year is
when the company makes the
salt in the crystallisers, stock-
piles and harvests the product
before the rainy season really


sets in during September.
Mr Bannister told The Tri-
bune that the weather has "so
far" been co-operating with
Morton Salt in 20o8, enabling it
to bring back the full 130-strong
workforce to a normal working
week one month earlier than
previously anticipated.
"We were down quite a bit
and had to defer a lot of sales,"
Mr Bannister said of 2007. "The
weather seems to have returned
to normal, and hope it contin-
ues. So our fingers are crossed
that the weather continues to
co-operate." He added that
December, January and Febru-
ary had all "been pretty good",
as had March, resuming historic
rainfall patterns.
Mr Bannister said the
resumption of a normal working
week had been a "big plus" for
both the company and wider
Inagua community and econo-
my, as the firm employed 60 per
cent of the island's workforce.
"People are working, getting
a pay cheque, paying their bills
and taking care of their fami-
lies," Mr Bannister said, adding

that there was "no question"
that Inagua's economy needed
to be diversified to reduce the
reliance placed on Morton Salt
to provide all employment.
"I would say the economy of
Inagua could and should be
diversified, but before you get
private investors down there,
there is a need for a lot of infra-
structure to be put in by the
Government and other people,"
he added.
Water
Mr Bannister said Inagua
needed more water, electricity
and utility supplies to be put in
to give investors an incentive to
come there. Morton Salt had
had to install its own utilities
and infrastructure, he added,
while it was difficult to attract
hotels and tourism-related busi-
nesses to Inagua because there
were airlift capacity restrictions
and the industry.had no history
on the island.
As a result, it was very diffi-
cult for Bahamian entrepre-
neurs interested in tourism and

bank financing for their pro-
jects, Mr Bannister suggesting
that the Government ought to
get the Bahamas Development

viding financing.
The Morton Salt managing
director also urged the
Bahamas Electricity Corpora-
tion (BEC) to "give me a date"
on when it would take over
responsibility for supplying
Inagua's electricity from the
company.
Mr Bannister said he was
"ready to sign over today",
adding that a BEC official had
last week told him the state-
owned corporation had been
looking for a site where they
could put an electrical genera-

"They were down here a
month ago looking at different
sites where they could locate a
facility," Mr Bannister said of
BEC. He had yet, though, to
hear any specifics from its gen-

Stamp Tax 'biggest




revenue la area'


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
GOVERNMENT rev-
enues were performing
"much better" against 2007
comparatives during the
third quarter of the Budget
year, the minister of state for
finance told The Tribune
yesterday, although Stamp
Tax collections continued to
be "the strongest area of lag"
behind projections.
Zhivargo Laing said of
revenue collections: "It's per-
forming much better against
last year's forecasts, and is
ahead of last year, but is still
behind Budget forecasts."
He added that government
spending was "fine", and was
the main area the adminis-
tration could control when it
came to the public finances.
Mr Laing said the Gov-
ernment traditionally col-
lected most of its revenues
during the second half of its
Budget year, which lasts
from January to June, as this
is when the majority of
tourism and economic activ-
ity takes place.
Stamp Tax collection was
$32.1 million lower than fore-

cast for the first six months of
.the 2007-2008 Budget year,
though, and Mr Laing
acknowledged yesterday: "I
think that is still the strongest
area of lag."
When asked whether the
Budget projections were too
optimistic, Mr Laing added:
"I would say that based on
all the information that we
had at our disposable at the
time, it was our view that
those [Stamp Tax] projec-
tions were doable.
"Revenue forecasting is
not a precise science, and
there are variables that
change from month to
month and impact the fore-
casts."
He pointed to the US
economy, where economic
growth forecasts had been
much higher last year, when
the 2007-2008 Budget fore-
casting was done, than today.
The Central Bank of the
Bahamas previously report-
ed that the fiscal deficit being
run by the Government
stood at $99.4 million for the
2007-2008 fiscal year first
half, a 97.95 per cent increase
over the previous year's
$50.2 million deficit.


effect be the majority 75 per
cent shareholder in all three
previously mentioned entities.
This, in turn, would enable
Hutchison Whampoa to have
majority control of all the major
productive and profit-generat-
ing assets in Freeport, and allow
it to call all the shots. Fleming
would effectively be relegated
to the status of minority, or
junior, partner with minimal
control.
The Tribune was yesterday
told that Fleming felt as if the
Prime Minister was trying to
"foist" Hutchison Whampoa on
them, and it is understood that
relations between the company


and Mr Ingraham have called
somewhat in recent weeks.
Fleming now wants to hear a
straight answer from the Prime
Minister as to whether he wants
them as a GBPA purchaser and
investor in Freeport or not,
believing they have fulfilled all
the commitments and every-
thing he has asked of them.
Fleming's approach to rela-
tions with Hutchison Whampoa
was outlined in a study con-
ducted for them on options for
Freeport's future development
by their Grand Bahama-based
consultant, Rob Millard of
Global Fulfillment Services.
The report said Fleming


would need the "significant sup-
port" of Hutchison Whampoa
to succeed with its Freeport
investment, and that the Hong
Kong-headquartered conglom-
erate, which has invested $1 bil-
lion worth of equity into
Freeport, formed "the critical
path to sustainable develop-
ment in Freeport, and to a deal
structure for a new owner to
make investment and economic
success of the GBPA".
With Hutchison Whampoa's
interests needing to be accom-
modated, the report noted that
discussions between Fleming
and the company had confirmed
the latter's interest in acquiring

Tourism tDP to grow

3.3% in the Bahamas


* By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter
THE Bahamian tourism
industry is likely to experience
real domestic product growth
of 3.3 per cent in 2008, gener-
ating $1.169 billion in econom-
ic activity, with direct industry
employment increasing by two
per cent to 35,000 jobs, the
World Travel and Tourism
Council (WTTC) has forecast.
The WTTC, in its annual
forecast on the tourism indus-
try's likely economic impact on
the Bahamas, predicted that
the industry will raise the coun-
try's overall GDP by 3.5 per
cent and increase overall
employment by 2.2 per cent in
2008.
The WTTC added that over
the next 10 years, the Bahami-
an travel and tourism industry's
GDP will grow by three per
cent on average, increase direct
industry employment by an
average of 2.5 per cent per
annum to 45,207 in 2018.
Additionally, the WTTC
forecast that demand for travel
to the Bahamas would likely
rise by 2.8 per cent, with visitor
exports increasing by three per
cent, per annum, capital invest-
ment expanding by 1.7 per cent
per year, and the Government
likely to increase its spending
on travel and tourism by three
per cent per year.
While the contribution to
GDP and employment is


the GBPA's assets and owner-
ship.
"Hutchison's local represen-
tatives have consistently, and
with apparent magnanimity,
offered to cede regulatory and
municipal services responsibili-
ties to government, should it
succeed in its bid to purchase
the companies," the report said.
"An equally harsh, but accu-
rate, translation of this offer
may be: 'We will take all the
value producing assets of the
GBPA/Port Group Ltd and you
may have the liabilities."
Opinion is divided on
whether Hutchison would invest
in upgrading Freeport's infra-


expected to rise, real GDP
growth for the Travel and
Tourism economy is expected
to be 3.5 per cent in 2008,
falling to an average 2.7 per
cent annum over the coming 10
years.
Export earnings from inter-
national visitors and tourism
goods are expected to gener-
ate 60. 4 per cent of total
exports $2.212 billion in 2008.
This is set to grow in nominal
terms to $3.826.9 billion or 57.8
per cent of total exports in
2018.
The WTTC report stated
that in this country, the travel
and tourism industry is expect-
ed to contribute directly 16.8
per cent of GDP in 2008,
1.168.5 billion. This was set to
rise in nominal terms to $2.0105
billion by 2018.
The WTTC council said that
overall, the expansion is expect-
ed to continue in 2008,
although the detonation in eco-
nomic conditions means that
growth in Travel and Tourism
GDP and employment will
slow moderately.
It said challenges come from
the United States slowdown,
and weak dollar, higher fuel
costs and concerns about cli-
mate change.
However, it added that the
continued strong expansion in
emerging countries, both as
tourism destinations and an
increasing source of interna-
tional visitor, means the indus-
try's prospects remain bright in
the medium term.


structure if they took control of
the GBPA, some arguing that it
was prepared to invest millions
if it got control.
Sources also told The Tri-
bune that Hutchison would be
prepared to work out a new
structure for the GBPA's licens-
ing, regulatory and quasi-gov-
ernmental functions with
licensees and the Government.
Still, there are also concerns
that Hutchison Whampoa
acquiring GBPA control will
turn Freeport into a 'company
town', while the US may also
be fearful of a Chinese-domi-
nated island off its eastern
seaboard.

Markets hope bank writedowns


* By NELSON D.
SCHWARTZ
and JULIA WERDIGIER
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

THE mortgage crisis set off
fresh shock waves on Tuesday,
with the biggest banks in
Switzerland and Germany
announcing huge write-downs
totaling $23 billion, adding to
the hundreds of billions in loss-
es that financial firms already
face from the subprime mort-
gage fallout.
Despite the continuing global
tide of red ink, investors seized
on hopes that the crisis may
have hit bottom, and the Dow
Jones industrial average surged
more than three per cent, or
nearly 392 points.
They were also encouraged
by announcements that Lehman
Brothers as well as UBS of
Switzerland are close to raising
a combined $19 billion in fresh
capital, a sign that investors
have not given up on banks.
Even so, some analysts say
that the optimism may be pre-
mature, reflecting wishful think-
ing more than economic reali-
ties.
"The market has been con-
sistently wrong each time they'
tried to find a bottom," said
Meredith Whitney, an analyst
at Oppenheimer & Co., noting
that earlier stock rallies in Jan-
uary and last fall were over-
whelmed by more bad news.
"There's a 'hooray' from the
stands, but investors don't real-
ize the bench has been weak-
ened," she said. "There's no end
in sight in terms of bad news."
Indeed, a report issued on
Tuesday by Morgan Stanley
concluded that investment
banks face their worst crisis in
30 years, surpassing the global
financial upheavals of 1998 as
well as the stock market crash
of 1987. It projected that invest-
ment banking revenue will drop
another 20 per cent this year,
and financial firms will report
a further $75 billion in mark-
downs on top of what they have
announced so far.


"There have been several
false dawns during this crisis,"
said Lawrence H Summers, who
confronted the financial shocks
of the late 1990s as Treasury
secretary under President Clin-
ton. "One can't be at all confi-
dent the worst of this is behind
us."
But Summers added that
recent actions by the Federal
Reserve, combined with bar-
gain prices for certain financial
assets, might be "enough to per-
mit a process of repair to
begin."
Other market observers not-
ed that Tuesday's big stock mar-
ket move was different in
important ways from previous
rallies.
Tuesday represented "one of
the biggest rallies we've had
that wasn't on Fed stereo' Is,"
said James W Paulsen, chief
investment strategist of Wells
Capital Management in Min-
neapolis, referring to rate cuts
made in recent months by the
Federal Reserve.
"What we're in the process
of doing is putting in a bottom,"
he added.
Paulsen, who oversees $200
billion in assets, also rejected
the idea that the economy was
in recession. "If we're in reces-
sion, why is unemployment five
per cent? Why are 80 per cent
of nonfinancial companies in
the S&P 500 still achieving dou-
ble-digit earnings gains?" he
said, referring to the Standard
& Poor's 500-stock index.
Reaction to the news of fresh
capital for Lehman and UBS
was "quite good," said Tobias
Levkovich, a longtime stock
market strategist at Citigroup.
"Does it mean all the problems
are behind us? No. But it sug-
gests the market is willing to
look past the valley to some
degree."
From a high last October of
1,565 to its low of 1,273 last
month, the S&P 500 fell 19 per
cent. That is close to the 20.5
per cent median decline stocks
have experienced over the last
nine recessions, Levkovich said.
Even so, enormous losses
keep piling up. Germany's
biggest bank, Deutsche Bank,
said on Tuesday that it would
take a $4-billion write-down
because of the subprime crisis,


and warned that market condi-
tions "have become significant-
ly more challenging during the
last few weeks."
That write-down, while large,
paled in comparison to the $19-
billion charge that UBS
announced on Tuesday.
That brought UBS' total
write-downs to nearly $40 bil-
lion more than any other
bank's and UBS expects to
post a first-quarter loss of $12
billion. But its plan to raise new
capital quashed fears that the
bank, based in Zurich, was fac-
ing deeper threats because of
the subprime woes.
UBS' financial woes caused
another casualty, however, in
its executive suite. UBS' long-
time chairman, Marcel Ospel,
abruptly resigned on Tuesday
after months of criticism from
shareholders.
Last summer, Peter Wuffli,
the bank's chief executive, was
among the first in a series of
high-profile financiers to be
forced out by subprime losses.
Now, with Ospel's departure,
UBS has joined American
giants like Merrill Lynch and
Citigroup in cleaning house at
the top. UBS said its general
counsel, Peter Kurer, would
succeed Ospel.


Lehman Brothers, the invest-
ment firm hit by worries about
its ability to weather the down-
turn, is already close to raising
$4 billion in fresh funds from
investors.
Financial stocks in Europe,
including those of UBS,
Deutsche Bank and Societe
General, as well as those df
their American counterparts -
including Lehman, Citigroup,
JPMorgan Chase, Merrill
Lynch, Bank of America and
Goldman Sachs surged on
Tuesday.
While the willingness of
investors to put up fresh cash
for Lehman and UBS under-
scores that they are in a
stronger position than Bear
Stearns, which was forced to sell
itself to JPMorgan last month,
the mortgage mess remains a
threat.
Not only are tens of billions
in troubled home loans that
remain on the books of banks
hard to value, but potential buy-
ers for these assets have evapo-
rated in recent months amid
fears that a recession in the
United States might threaten
segments of the credit market

have hit rock bottom


that were previously thought
to be sTafe.
"Everyone is trying to
kitchen-sink this thing, but it's
hard to do so without knowing
the ultimate level of credit loss-
es," said Josh Rosner, a man-
aging director of Graham Fish-
er, an independent consulting
firm in New York.
What's more, delinquency
rates are now rising even
among homeowners who qual-
ified for loans backed by Fan-
nie Mae and Freddie Mac, the
government-chartered compa-
nies that guarantee the bulk of
mortgages in the United States.
So the problems facing ordi-
nary homeowners, as well as
the big banks that hold their
mortgages, could still worsen..
according to Rosner.
"In any bear market you
have relief rallies, and that's
what we're embracing," he
said. "But functionally, we've
not addressed the underlying
problem of illiquid securities."
UBS said it still owned $15
billion in subprime debt, even
after the latest write-downs. It
owns another $16 billion in Alt-
A mortgages, which are loans
to borrowers with credit that
is slightly better but still shaky.
"We were compelled to
announce further heavy losses,
but-at the same time we have
been able to show our investors
and shareholders a clear way
out of this crisis," UBS' chief


executive, Marcel Rohner, said
in a conference call on Tues-
(lda, referring to the plans to
raise $15 billion. "The next
chapter is one of discipline and
detci minallltion."
The planned capital increase
would come on top of a $13-
billion infusion ULBS received
from the Government of Sin-
gapore Investment Corp. and.
an unidentified Middle East-
ern investor earlier this year.
UBS' problems of the last
year mark a stunning reversal
for an institution long known
for its staid, conservative style.
Beginning in 2005, UBS made
a huge bet on mortgage securi-
ties, seeking the higher yields
they offered and trusting that
the AAA ratings they bore
would protect the bank from
outsized losses.
Eventually, UBS' mortgage
portfolio topped $100 billion.
"The losses at UBS are stag-
gering," Whitney of Oppen-
heimer said. "It's hard to fath-
om another quarter of $18- or
$1 9-billion write-downs, but
this isn't the end of their prob-
lems."
As for the broader market,
over the next few weeks
investors will be closely fol-
lowing earnings announce-
ments as companies report
first-quarter results, looking for
any sign of the recession many
economists believe is now
under way.


Sharp swings in the stock
market have been a hallmark
of trading this year, reflecting
the deep split on Wall Street
between bulls like Paulsen and
bears like Rosner.
On March 18, for example,
the Dow leapt 420 points, only
to sink 293 points the next day.
Similarly, a 307-point plunge
on January 17 was followed by
a 400-point rally the following
week.

* By MARTIN
CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Orders to United States facto-
ries fell for a second straight
month, a worse-than-expected
performance that reinforced
worries that the risk of reces-
sion is rising.
The Commerce Department
reported Wednesday that fac-
tory orders dropped by 1.3 per
cent in February, about double
the downturn that economists
had been expecting.
Orders had fallen an even
bigger 2.3 per cent in January,
the largest decline in five
months.
The falloff in demand was
widespread, with steep declines
in orders for motor vehicles,
various types of heavy machin-
ery and demand for iron and
steel.
Many economists believe a
prolonged housing slowdown
and credit crunch have already
pushed the country into a reces-
sion.
Federal Reserve Chairman
Ben Bernanke, testifying before
the Joint Economic Committee
on Wednesday, said that the
economy could shrink over the
first half of this year, his most
pessimistic assessment to date.
"It now appears likely that
gross domestic product will not
grow much, if at all, over the
first half of 2008 and could even
contract slightly," Bernanke
told lawmakers.
Under one rule, six straight
months of declining GDP would
constitute a recession.
Bernanke said he still expect-
ed economic growth to
strengthen in the second half of


now gaper

the year but he said: "In light of
the recent turbulence in finan-
cial markets, the uncertainty
attending this forecast is quite
high and the risks remain to the
downside."
The report on factory orders
showed demand falling by 1.1
per cent for durable goods,
items expected to last at least
three years, while orders for
non-durable goods, products
such as oil and chemicals, fell
by 1.5 per cent.
The weakness in manufac-
turing occurred even though
orders for commercial airplanes
rose by 5.1 per cent in February.
rebounding from a big decline
in January.


Orders for motor vehicles fell
by two per cent in February
after no gain in January.
Automakers are struggling with
weak demand in the face of
soaring gasoline prices.
Overall, orders for trans-
portation products posted a 1.8
per cent rise in February as the
strength in commercial and
defense aircraft orders as well as
higher demand for ships and
boats offset the drop in motor
vehicles.
Orders for heavy machinery
plunged by 12.3 per cent in Feb-
ruary, the biggest decline since
January 2004, while orders for
iron and steel fell by 2.3 per
cent.

TALLAHASSEE, Florida
(AP) Florida Power & Light
will need to increase electricity
production by 25 per cent over
the next decade to meet rising
demand, the company said
Tuesday.
In a document outlining its
plans for the next 10 years filed
with state regulators, the state's
largest electric company said it
expects to have more than five
million customers by 2017.
Electricity usage will also
increase by 16 per cent for each
residential customer by then.


FPL plans to build new
nuclear generators at its Turkey
Point facility south of Miami
and to upgrade existing nuclear
generators there and in St
Lucie County to deal with the
growth.
Sources
The company said it also
plans to aggressively pursue
alternative sources of energy,
including solar power, and is
also seeking to build a new nat-
ural gas generator at a plant in


Palm Beach County.
The state's second largest
electric company, St Peters-
burg-based Progress Energy
Florida, also filed an outline of
its plans over the next decade
with the Public Service Com-
mission Tuesday. It said it will
seek to build a new natural gas
generating unit at its existing
plant in Suwannee County in
north Florida.
The new generator, if it goes
forward, would replace three
1950s era oil-buring plants at
the Suwannee County facility


in an effort to lower emissions
and improve efficiency, the
company said.
Progress
Progress said previously it
wants to build two new nuclear
generators that would start run-
ning in 2016 and 2017. The nat-
ural gas plant would be ready

**** Minutes from the 2006 AGM are now ready

* By JOHN DUNBAR
Associated Press Writer
WASHING(TON (AP) -
When antitrust regulators decid-
ed last week to allow the
nation's only two satellite radio
companies to become one, they
put forth an unexpected argu-
ment that the two compa-
nies largely do not compete
with one another.
That may be true, but it's not
what government regulators
intended.
Justifying its decision, the Jus-
tice Department said customers
of XM Satellite Radio Holdings
Inc. and Sirius Satellite Radio
Inc. generally stick to one ser-
vice once they have signed up,
because if they want to switch,
they have to buy a new radio.
XM's receivers don't get Sirius
signals, and vice versa.
When the Federal Commu-
nications Commission approved
rules that created the business
in 1997, it insisted that the two
licensees "certify" that their


radios would receive both ser-
vices. The rule was meant to
promote competition by mak-
ing it easy for consumers to
switch between satellite radio
providers.
"At the very least, consumers
should be able to access the ser-
vices from all licensed satellite
DARS (digital audio radio ser-
vice) systems and our rule on
receiver inter-operability
accomplishes this," the FCC's
1997 decision reads.
Goal
Eleven years later, that goal
has been all but abandoned.
Subscribers to XM buy one type
of radio, subscribers to Sirius
buy another. Auto makers
install one system or the other,
depending on which company
they have an exclusive contract
with.
The failure to deploy radios
that work with both systems was
cited by the Justice Department
as part of its justification to clear
the merger.
It said "there has never been
significant competition"
between the companies for cus-
tomers who already subscribed
to one of the services. While the
companies "made some efforts"
to develop an interoperable
radio, it said, "no such inter-
operable radio is on the mar-
ket and that such a radio likely
would not be introduced in the
near term."
Gene Kimmelman, vice pres-
ident for federal and interna-
tional affairs for Consumers
Union, nonprofit publisher of
Consumer Reports magazine,
accused the government of fail-
ing to protect consumers.
"If the DOJ truly believes the
failure to develop an inter-oper-
able radio is diminishing com-
petition between XM and Sir-
ius, it should be promoting
I


aggressive steps to market that
inter-operable radio rather than
allow the two companies to
combine into a monopoly," he
said.
Thomas 0 Barnett, assistant
attorney general for antitrust at
the Justice Department, told
The Associated Press that the
interoperable radio issue was a
part of the investigation, but he
declined to pass judgment on
what the companies' FCC oblig-
ations were.
"We focused on what was
actually happening in the mar-
ketplace and what was likely to
happen in the marketplace
going forward," he said.
"The parties did in fact devel-
op an inter-operable radio and
my understanding is they have
one," he continued. "But there's
a difference between develop-
ing something and market
acceptance of something."
The companies subsidize the
cost of equipment, which
reduces the upfront cost to sub-
scribers. An inter-operable
radio might lead to a more
expensive radio, Barnett said,
and it would be unclear who
would subsidize the cost.
The $5 billion buyout of XM
by Sirius still needs approval
from the FCC, which prohibited
a merger when it granted satel-
lite radio operating licenses in
1997. The companies argue that
the prohibition was a "policy
statement" rather than a "bind-
ing commission rule."
The companies say that
ample competition is provided
by other forms of audio enter-
tainment, including "high-defi-
nition" radio, Internet-based
radio stations and even devices
like Apple Inc.'s iPod, an argu-
ment the Justice Department
found convincing.
The FCC has the authority to
block the sale or impose condi-
tions on pricing or programme

offerings.
Mel Karmazin, who would
assume the role as chief execu-
tive officer of the merged com-
pany, told a House subcommit-
tee that the two companies have
spent $25 million and success-
fully developed an inter-oper-
able receiver, but manufacturers
are not interested in making it.
"We've developed it, we've
lived up to our license. There's
not a question," he said.
There is nothing in the license
that says the company has to
subsidize such a radio and bring
it to the market. And to expect
the companies to do that on
their own isn't realistic, Kar-
mazin said.
It is uncertain when the FCC
will act on the merger, and the
agency declined to comment for
this story.
FCC Chairman Kevin Mar-
tin said when the companies
announced the merger that "the
hurdle here, however, would be
high" for the companies to
receive approval because of the
agency's no-merger rule. The
companies will have to demon-
strate, that "consumers will be
clearly better off with both
more choice and affordable
prices."
Agency
On November 2, the agency
sent extensive requests for doc-
uments to both companies,
including a request for them to
"provide a description of all
efforts to develop and commer-
cialize inter-operable satellite
radio receivers and any diffi-
culties in such development and
commercialization."
Through the end of 2007,
Washington, D.C.-based XM
reported nine million sub-
scribers and New York City-
based Sirius reported 8.3 mil-
lion subscribers.

Taxi drivers desperate for rate increase


* By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter
WITH gas hovering at around
$5 per gallon, public trans-
portation providers yesterday
said they were struggling to
remain profitable while they
await the Government's
approval for a rate increase.
The Bahamas Taxi Cab
Union's president, Leon Grif-
fin, said taxi drivers were now
desperately awaiting the Gov-
ernment's approval of their
request to update their fares.
"We had asked for the fares
to be increased for the past
three or four years, and the
Government is still making a
decision," Mr Griffin added.
He said that considering how
quickly fuel prices had
increased, they had repeated

BAHA MAR, from 1B-

lion project's joint venture.
None of Baha Mar's 1900-
strong resort and casino work-
force at the Sheraton, Wynd-
ham and Crystal Palace casino
are impacted by the move, with
staffing levels to remain in line
with operational demand.
Robert Sands, Baha Mar's
senior vice-president for gov-
ernmental and external affairs,
told The Tribune: "We're going
to downsize about 50 per cent
of the Development Company.
We have 104 persons employed
in the Development Company,
and it's 100 per cent on that
side.
"It's a significant number of
expatriates, plus some Bahami-
an staff. We want to stress that
this certainly doesn't impact our
current operational units, the
Sheraton, the Wyndham and
the casino."
Baha Mar Development
Company is effectively a sepa-
rate company from Baha Mar
Resorts. The Development
Company's responsibilities
involved planning for and exe-
cuting construction of the $2.6
billion Cable Beach redevelop-
ment, while Baha Mar Resorts
ran the operations for the exist-
ing two hotels and casino.
Mr Sands said the between
40-50 Development Company
staff set to be impacted by the
downsizing were mostly project


their request to have taxi fares
increased as quickly as possible.
In particular, the union is only
asking for permission to increase
the fixed zone rates and not the
meter rates fares.
Mr Griffin said the $5 per gal-
lon gas spike has placed tremen-
dous financial hardship not only
on the union's members, but
also for the taxi cab unit itself.
"We operate a business side
as well .as the union, and we
order our gas wholesale. So say
we pay $2,500 in diesel in a
week, then now we are paying
$5000, so the cost has doubled
and tripled," he added.
Further, Mr Griffin said he
does not know how long the
union's members can continue
without being able to pass some
of the burden on to the con-
sumer.
"We have had to hold back,
but everything is going up and I


managers, engineers and con-
struction personnel.
The downsizing was an
"immediate process", Mr Sands
said, adding: "We regret that
this is a process that has to take
place, but we intend to do it
with the highest amount of
respect for those affected.
"The reality is that the staff
directly affected are those who
would have been involved in
managing the construction
work's start."
The redundancies are anoth-
er direct consequence of Har-
rah's decision to unilaterally ter-
minate its involvement in the
$2.6 billion Cable Beach pro-
ject. The move, which has left
the project in limbo and Baha
Mar with one year in which to
devise an alternative scheme or
find a new partner, has had a
chilling effect on both the con-
struction industry and wider
Bahamian economy and busi-
ness confidence.
Apart from the obvious neg-
ative impact on Bahamian staff
who will be let go by Baha Mar
Development Company, and
their families, the loss of expa-
triate employees will also be
felt.
Many are likely to leave the
Bahamas, with the economy set
to lose their spending on goods
and services, while real estate
and rental values may also be
impacted.


know that some companies have
given their employees' raises to
help offset the cost of living
expenses," Mr Griffin said.
Another limousine provider,
who asked that his name not be
used, said operating costs have
increased by at least 10 per cent
because the gas increase drives
increases in every business area.
If you look at it, in the first
few months of this year alone,
gas has gone up from $3.89 to
over $4, and is now $5 a gallon,"
he added.
He said this has had an impact
on business, although the true
picture has yet to be revealed.
"Although gas has increased,"
he said, "we cannot just drop an
increase on our. customers
immediately, so we are trying to
absorb the cost for now."
He said that something needs
to be done to help the taxi work-
s, s offset the cost, particularly in


Mr Sands said Baha Mar had
"postponed until further notice"
plans it had to demolish two
towers at the Wyndham resort
as part of the $2.6 billion rede-
velopment.
"While we go through the
process of reviewing our
options, that decision has been
put on hold," he added.
Mr Sands also confirmed to
The Tribune that there were no
plans to re-open the Nassau
Beach Hotel, saying "for the
time being, that hotel property
is closed and will remain
closed".
There was also no way back
for former tenants Sbarro's and
Cafe Johnny Canoe, the two
outlets that had formed the cen-
tre of tourist and local activi-
ties on that part of the Cable
Beach Strip.
"It will be very difficult to
operate parts of that property as
a result of the hotel being
closed. There is no considera-
tion for opening any aspect of
that property in the short-term."
Mr Sands said.
He did not comment directly
on the options Baha Mar was
considering, which could
include enticing Harrah's back
into the deal or even taking
legal action against them.
"We want to explore all our
options at this time. We don't
want to speculate on what may
be the future," Mr Sands said.

prices have remained stagnant
for the last 10 years.


Another service operator
would only say that it remains
inevitable that prices will have to

Opening lead queen of hearts.

Assume you're declarer at six
diamonds and West leads the queen
of hearts, which you take with the
king. How would you play the hand?
The outcome seems to depend on
two finesses one in diamonds, the
other in clubs. If either finesse wins
and the trumps are divided normally,
12 tricks become certain.
As it happens, both finesses, if
attempted, lose. But when the hand
was played, declarer found a differ-
ent line of play that did not de-
1 .


entirely on the location of the minor-
suit queens.
At trick two, he led a diamond to
the king and returned a diamond to
the jack, losing to the queen. After
West exited with a heart to dummy's
ace, South led a spade to the ace and
cashed the ace of trumps, dummy
discarding a club and East a spade.
Declarer next led a spade to
dummy's king and ruffed a spade,
taking particular notice of West's
failure to follow suit. He then cashed
his last two trumps, discarding two
more clubs from dummy and retain-
ing dummy's last spade. East's last
three cards at this point consisted of
the queen of spades and 10-9 of
clubs.
South now led a low club to
dummy's king and a low club back,
East producing first the nine and then
the ten. Ordinarily, declarer would
have finessed the jack and gone
down two, but since East's last card
was known to be a spade, a finesse
could not possibly succeed. So South
played the ace, caught the queen and
thus made the slam.
The key to South's success lay in
his playing three rounds of spades to*
force the defenders to reveal their
distribution in that suit. Nothing
could be lost by investigating. the
spade situation, but there was much
to be gained:by trying to get a more
precise picture of the unseen hands.

Tal Memorial, Moscow 2007. It was
the strongest event of the year next
to the world championship, and 7
Kramnik, who had lost his world
title in Mexico City, took first prize C
in impressive style. He sacrificed a 5
pawn in this knight endgame to
reach the puzzle diagram where
White (to move) has a passed pawn
on h7 one square from queening.
The promotion square is guarded by2
Shirov's g6 knight, so there seems
no way to make progress. An
internet video which can be viewed
on www.brightcove.tv shows what
happened next. Kiamnik made his
winning move, rose from his chair,
sipped water, and paced round the
board while Shirov, head buried inr
hands, vainly sought a way out.
After a few minutes Shirov held out
his hand in resignation, and the

FEDERAL RESERVE Chairman Ben 3mii t, lie-.iii,.

'A recession is possible'


* By JEANNINE AVERSA
AP Economics Writer

WASHIN(GTON (AP)-
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben
Bernanke warned Congress yes-
terday that the economy may
shrink over the first half of this
year and that "*a recession is
possible." Yet, he didn't offer
any assurances of further inter-
est rate cuts.
Bernanke's testimony to the
Joint Economic ('onniittee was
a much more pessimistic assess-
ment of the economy's inmme-
diate prospects amid a trio of
crises -- housing, credit and
financial.
It now appears likely that
gross domestic product (GDP)
will not grows much, if at all.
over the first hall of s, and
could even contract slightly,"
Bernanke told law makers.
G(DP measures the value of
all goods and services produced
within the I nitcd States and is
the best barometer of the iUS'


Federal Reserve chairman warns Congress that

US economy may shrink over first half of 2008


economic health. Under one
rule, six straight months of
declining GDP, would consti-
tute a recession.
Still, Bernanke said that he
expects more economic growth
in the second half of this year
and into 2009, helped by the
government's $168 billion stim-
ulus package of tax rebates for
people and tax breaks for busi-
nesses as well as the Fed's
aggressive reductions to a key
interest rate.
Nevertheless, the chairman
acknowledged uncertainty
about the Fed's next steps,
notwithstanding the mounting
economic woes.
"Much necessary economic
and irnn.ic;il adjustment has
already taken place, and mone-
tary and fiscal policies are in
train that should support a
return to growth in the second
half of this year and next year,"
Bernanke said.
To try to limit the damage,
the Federal Reserve has aggres-
sively cut a key interest rate,
now at 2.25 per cent, to spur
buying and investing by indi-
viduals and businesses.
At the Fed's last meeting in
March, however, two members
dissented from the Fed's deci-
sion to sharply cut rates, show-
ing a rare division in the often
unified front the Fed shows the
public. The dissenting officials,
who had reputations for being
extra concerned about inflation,
favoured a smaller reduction.
Although Bernanke said he
hopes inflation will moderate
in coming quarters, he acknowl-
edged that high energy prices
have clouded the inflation out-
look.
Many economists had pre-
dicted the Fed might drop it key
that rate again when it next
meets April 29-30, although
Bernanke's remarks cast some
doubt on that scenario.
On Wall Street, stocks ini-
tially dropped after the Fed
chief's remarks but later turned
slightly positive.
Housing, credit and financial
woes are threatening to push
the country into a deep reces-


sion. The situation has emerged
as a top concern for presidential
contenders and a hot-button
issue 'for Congress. It has thrust
the White House and the Fed in
crisis-management mode.
Faced with mounting home
foreclosures and job losses,
Bernanke has been under
immense political and public
pressure to provide relief and
help turn around a faltering
economy.
Committee Chairman Sena-
tor Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.,
peppered Bernanke with ques-
tions about the Fed's moves to
aid once mighty Wall Street
firm Bears Steams and then jux-
taposed that with what he
believed was a lack of help to
millions of people at risk of los-
ing their homes.
"I hope that you will use your
position to jawbone this admin-
istration to get behind the hous-
ing relief effort before Con-
gress." Schumer said. "Address-
ing the housing crisis head-on
will do as much to instill confi-
dence in the markets as lower-
ing interest rates or bolstering
regulatory oversight of wayward
mortgage lenders and financial
institutions. We need to do all
of it."
"Wall Street has been helped.
Now it's time to help Main
Street," added Rep. Carolyn
Maloney, D-N.Y.
Many private analysts believe
the economy contracted in the
first three months of this year,
signaling the start of a reces-
sion. The government releases
first-quarter results later this
month.
The economy lost jobs in Jan-
uary and February, with many
economists bracing for more
losses when the report for
March is released on Friday.
Bernanke said he expected
unemployment to move "some-
what higher in coming months."
"Clearly, the US economy is
going through a very difficult
period," he told lawmakers,
adding that all the problems
have weighed heavily on con-
sumers whose spending is indis-
pensable to economic vitality.


The Fed also has taken a
series of extraordinary steps in
recent weeks and months to
prop up the nation's financial
system, which has been in state
of high jeopardy.
In a controversial move, the
Fed backed a $29 billion life-
line as part of JP Morgan's deal
to take over the troubled Bear
Steams, the nation's fifth largest
investment house, which was on
the brink of bankruptcy. Bear
Stearns had invested heavily in
risky mortgage-backed securi-
ties that eventually soured with
the collapse of the housing mar-
ket.
Bernanke defended the
move.
"With financial conditions
fragile, the sudden failure of
Bear Stearns likely would have
led to a chaotic unwinding of
positions in those markets and
could have severely shaken con-
fidence," he said. "The damage
caused by a default by Bear
Stearns could have been severe
and extremely difficult to con-
tain."
Although the taxpayers are
on the hook for the $29 billion,
Bernanke said he was "reason-
ably confident we'll be able to
recover the full amount." He
also said that Bear Stearns'
investments that the Fed took
control of "are entirely invest-
ment grade."
In addition, the Fed in the
broadest use of its credit author-
ity since the 1930s agreed to
temporarily let big investment
firms obtain emergency financ-
ing from the Fed, a privilege
that previously had been grant-
ed only to commercial banks.
Those actions have prompted
criticism from Democrats and
others who contend that the
Fed is bailing out Wall Street
and putting billions of taxpay-
ers' dollars at potential risk.
Bernanke and the Bush
administration argued that the
actions were warranted to avert
a potential meltdown in the
entire financial system, some-
thing that would have devastat-
ing consequences for the overall
economy.

ROBERT E. SCHRODER

was born in Bogor, Indonesia, May 28, 1931.

His father died when he was 8 years old.

As so many other Dutch families, his mother left
Indonesia with her two sons, Robert and Peter after
World War II, trying to build a new life in her country
of origin, the Netherlands.

Robert continued his education in Holland and
studied economics at The Erasmus University in
Rotterdam.

He married Grace van Riet in 1969. The couple
lived in The Hague for 2 years and in 1971 Robert
started a position for the European Commssion to
live outside Europe, serving in many different third
world countries.

Robert, Grace and their two sons, Eric and Marc
moved to The Bahamas to enjoy retirement there
in 1996 while the boys could continue further
education in Nassau, USA and Canada.

Although Robert was a very introverted and rather
shy man he was always able to, and did spend time,
showing his compassion for the less fortunate
through material gifts and more importantly he was
always willing and ready to share his knowledge
and experience with others, for which he was highly
respected and admired.

He was known for his integrity, honesty and modesty.

Robert died in Nassau, March 30, 2008.

Mr. Schroder is survived by his wife, Grace; sons,
Eric Robert and Marc Sebastiaan, Peter Schroder;
sisters-in-law, Sigrid Schroder and Fons van Riet.

Instead of flowers donations may be made to a
charity of your choice in memory of Robert E.
Schroder.

THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES


"TAKING THE CITY"
TOPIC: "GOD HAS ANOINTED SOMETHING
IN YOUR LIFE"
By: Pastor Kenneth H.B. Adderley

Read: Isaiah 10:27; 2 Kings 4:2; Jeremiah 1:4-5;
Joshua 6:20; Matthew 11:12

What is a CITY?
* An area given with boundaries, authority and a structure
of laws to govern by.
* A group of people thinking the same way.
* A living organism that grows, feels, reacts, loves, hates,
restores, 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.
WHAT IS THE ANOINTING?
* It is the burden removing, yoke destroying Power of God
in your life.
* When the Anointing shows up people burdens are removed
and their yokes are destroyed.
* It is the Power of the Holy Spirit to solve an immediate
problem.
WHAT IS IT IN YOUR LIFE?
* You have been given something God can use. Find it.
* Anything common in you will become uncommon under
the Anointing.
* You do not need others weapons.
* Others will believe that your weapon is not sufficient to
take the city.
* Whatever have been given will create anything else you
have been promised.
* God is not interested in what you cannot do. He is
interested in whatever you are willing to do.
* Do not build your life trying to correct your weakness.
Build your life defining your strengths and gifts that God
has given you. They are the Anointing to each victory in
your life.
* Your weakness will not stop you from taking the city; if
your heart is right.
* You already possess everything you need to take the city.
* The Anointing you appreciate is the anointing that increases
in your life.
* Expect your Anointing to increase through the presence
of the Holy Spirit in your life.
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"

The 'spirit of senior


in


the church of Jesus Christ


FERGUSON. JP


For I say, through the grace given
unto me, to every man that is among
you, not to think of himself more high-
ly than he ought to think...
Romans 12:3(a)
When Jesus, our lead-
ership model, was
on earth, he demon-
strated leadership
succession planning
by gathering an "inner circle" of apos-
tles around Him, and giving them spe-
cial experiences and training.
As time passed, and this inner
group experienced Jesus "up close",
they, unfortunately, wanted more than
just being on the "inside track". They
began to want more prominence and
power than the other nine apostles.
Peter wanted wealth 'a retire-
ment package'. He selected his
moment to ask about his future. He
wanted to know how he was going to
benefit from the financial sacrifices he
had made when he left a lucrative
business career to become an apostle,
sans salary.
James and John didn't want
wealth. They wanted seniority -
"Grant unto us that we may sit, one
on thy right hand and the other on thy
left hand, in glory" (Matthew 20:20-
23). Seniority to them meant more
than money! In fact, seniority meant
everything. It made them selfish, ruth-
less, irrational and self-centered.
It is this very same "seniority spirit"
which has seemingly entered the
Church of Jesus Christ in recent years.
It is apparent that church leaders have
not paid attention to Jesus' statements
regarding His views on the concept
and practice of seniority within His
Church.
Leaders, in many quarters, appear
to be leading people away from Jesus'
values on this subject. In fact, it
seems, from their behaviour, that


some leaders just love the "rush" of
self-esteem they experience when
referred to as "senior," or are spoken
of as being the most senior leader, or
when they are "elevated" to seniority
status, by being called, "the elder
statesman" or the "senior bishop".
Jesus never taught, encouraged or
tolerated humanistic and ego-enhanc-
ing concepts like seniority which ele-
vates the status of one person above
the other in the eyes of the church
community and in the body of Christ.
Cultivating such a spirit leads to pride.
(See Proverbs 16:18).
Jesus spoke clearly about His posi-
tion on the matter to James and John.
To the rest of his apostles, Jesus indi-
cated that the one who wanted to be
the senior one was to be the chief ser-
vant the one who served the most or


who served everyone else, not the
other way around, that is, the one
everyone expects to serve, conspicu-
ously and ostentatiously.
James later went on to lead the
early church so it was fortunate that
Jesus got this straight in his head and
in his spirit earlier on in his ministry.
The seniority-obsessed got this indict-
ment when St Paul addressed the
Galatians: "It is the people who are
not important who often make the
mistake of thinking that they are."
(Galatians 6:3, JB). A seniority-
obsessed person embraces the "spirit
of seniority".
So often, people in leadership posi-
tions in the church attempt to magnify
their importance and seniority by
using various expressions to acquaint
all concerned with their years of serv-
ice: 'Respect me I've been around
for a long time,' or 'I am senior I am
your best choice', or 'I am the only
one of the 'old timers' left', or 'What
is the church going to do when I'm
gone?' These people often assert their
seniority by bringing up those "old
stories" about how they used to work
with that one or the other all long
deceased!
In large companies, especially those
that are unionized developing coun-
tries tend to follow the European
model where both workers and mid-
managers are a part of separate
unions seniority or years of service is
a factor of prime significance. So it is
normal to find a passage on seniority
in all industrial agreements in the
Bahamas.
Here is a part of a seniority clause
from a BEC industrial agreement:
"For promotions, where two or
more candidates have equal ability,
efficiency and experience, the candi-
date with the greatest seniority shall
he given preference."


Sadly, this kind of thinking was
apparently brought into the body of
Christ by persons who are used to its
operation on their secular jobs. Also,
the concept of "promotion" has come
along with it, so churches say they
now have annual "promotional exer-
cises." Often in these situations, the
major thing motivating a person to
work is the expectation of promotion
in the next round of promotions, as is
mostly the case on secular jobs.
This whole matter of seniority
needs to be aired and discussed,
although talking about it is bound to
make some people nervous. The
Church of Jesus Christ cannot
embrace secular practices that are not
endorsed by Jesus Christ, the head of
the Church.
Writing in Tribune Religion (March
13, 2008) Rev Angela Bosfield
Palacious, a leading clergy person, was
quoted as saying, in an exhortation
titled "Were You There" that the
church is the body of Christ here on
earth (and) "everything that happens
within the body is of significance to
the head". That statement embodies
the heart of this exhortation!
As the Church strives to move clos-
er to perfection and as leaders and
laity strive to be more like Christ. we
must review and examine matters like
'the spirit of seniority' to see what the
Holy Spirit has to say to us concerning
it.
Please watch for part two of this
presentation.

Why did Thomas insist that



he had to touch Jesus?


* By FATHER JAMES MOULTRIE

Unless I see the mark of the nails in
His hands, and put my finger in the
marks of the nail and my hand in His
side, I will not believe.
John 20:25

THERE is a human need to touch
the visible and the concrete. When we
visit places as tourists we want to bring
back photos and cards and souvenirs to
prove that we have been there. So we
who travel can sympathize with
Thomas that he would not believe
unless he touched the Risen Lord. He
was merely echoing the human need
for certainty. But where faith is con-
cerned we have to go beyond this, as
Jesus told Thomas.
Why did Thomas insist that he had
to touch Jesus? Wasn't seeing Him in


the Upper
Room enough? '
He had to touch
Jesus in order
for him to be
healed of his
doubt. He had
seen others
touch Jesus and
be healed. He
was there when
the woman
touched the
hem of His garment and was healed.
The difference was that her faith was
strong. But Thomas' faith was so weak
that he had to touch Jesus himself.
Thomas was in fact the wounded
one. His mind was darkened by his
doubt. His heart was broken by the
grief of Good Friday, even though his
wounds were invisible. But they were


real and very painful. But Jesus could
see them and it was he who touched
Thomas' wounds and made him well
again. And once healed, Thomas could
declare, "My Lord and my God!"
The human heart is healed only by
the presence of another human being
who understands human pain and
grief. The Lord's wounds help us to
recognize our own wounds and offer
healing for them. Those may be invisi-
ble as Thomas', but they are very real.
Jesus' wounds are caused by love.
They were proof of His love (John
3:16). They were the mortal wounds of
the Good Shepherd, who suffered for
the sake of His lost sheep.
The story of Doubting Thomas, as
we like to call him, brings home to us
how frail our faith is. It shows us that
our faith must be in the person who
loves us and who died for us; the One


who has the wounds of crucifixion to
prove it. That person is Jesus. At the
very heart of the biblical faith is not
only the faith we have in God, but the
faith God has in us.
So Jesus said to Thomas, "Thomas,
you believe in me because you have
seen me and touched me. But blessed
are those who have not seen and yet
believe". This is not just a little jab at
Thomas, but an encouragement to us
who are asked to believe without being
able to see or touch Jesus. We have to
be like Peter and say, "Yes, Lord, I
believe that you are the Christ, the Son
of the Living God."
Can you say that on the First Sunday
after Easter? Or do you still need
proof? Do you still need to touch Jesus
yourself? It is said, "Seeing is believ-
ing." But Jesus says, "Not seeing is
believing". Which is it for you?


Church members have an'Old Bight'


MANY would think just another
Good Friday Fish Fry in Cat Island, but
there is something special about this
occasion.
After St Saviour's Parish held its
Good Friday liturgy at St Peter's in
Knowles, Father Burton, priest in
charge; Fr Edward Seymour, associate
priest, and church members congregat-
ed in St Mary's the Virgin Church yard
to share in the solemnities of the day
and feast on sumptuous fried fish.
St Mary's in Old Bight is the only
remaining bastion in the
Commonwealth of the Bahamas which
was constructed to commemorate the
emancipation of slavery in the
Bahamas. The funds that were used to
construct this edifice were donated by
the widow of the governor who read the
emancipation proclamation.
Presently, the church sits on a busy
intersection in Old Bight without a
roof. Catechist Cedric and his wife Olga
Wilson, along with Camellar Seymour
and many other dedicated and deter-
mined members ensured that passer-
by's and visitors enjoyed the savoury
Good Friday Bahamian delicacies.
It has been noted by the priests and
many of the members that often time's
Family Island people look for too many
hand-outs but this proves once and for
all that self help is the best help. St
Mary's will undergo massive restora-
tion so that in the not too distant future
Cat Islanders, Bahamians and
Anglicans in general can be proud of
this historical gem.


AFTER ST SAVIOUR'S PARISH held its Good Friday liturgy at St Peter's in Knowles, church members congregated in St Mary's the
Virgin Church yard to share in the solemnities of the day and feast on sumptuous fried fish.

'...We do have many good



shepherds/pastors in our land'


* By PASTOR MATTHEW ALLEN

A FEW weeks ago we talked about identifying the
thief who Yeshuwa Messiah referred to in John 10:10.
I indicated that erroneous, incomplete religious
teachings and preaching has taught the body of
Christ that He was referring to the devil himself. In
John 10:8, Yeshuwa clearly states, All that ever came
before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did
not hear them.
Whenever referring to Satan/the devil, Yeshuwa
made it clearly known. The bible states that at the
mouth of two or three witnesses shall the matter be
established. With this in mind here are three of many
scripture verses where, whenever Yeshuwa was refer-
ring to the devil, He made it known.
Luke 22 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon.
behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may
sift you as wheat.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the
lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from
the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because
there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he
speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of
it.
Luke 8:12 Those by the way side are they that
hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word
out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be
saved.

Many synagogue rulers/religious leaders who came
before Yeshuwa walked the earth were instructed by
the word of God to care for God's people. But
instead, some of these leaders used their office and
positions to abuse and take advantage of the people
as they were living the luxurious life on the hills of
success and abundance; while the people were living
in the valley of need and poverty. The religious lead-
ers hated Yeshuwa and looked for any and every rea-


son possible to accuse or con-
demn Him for His teachings r
and for exposing their wicked
methods of operations. These
leaders were supposed to be .
Godly shepherds for the peo- o '~
ple, but instead they were
operating in a devilish spirit; *
stealing, robbing and, in some
cases, killing the people.
When Yeshuwa showed up,
He brought assurance and
comfort to the people through
His teachings. Here's what He
said to them in John 10: 11, 1 l
am the good shepherd: the
good shepherd giveth his life
for the sheep.
Here's a sad, but true fact: the American gospel -
flashy, tainted, prosperity-based has ensnared many
of our church leaders. As a result, having a genuine
shepherd's heart to love and lead the sheep into
green pastures has been substituted with a selfish
heart and the teaching take care of the man of God
first. This was the kind of teaching and behaviour
that Yeshuwa spoke against when He stated, All that
ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the
sheep did not hear them.
Please! Don't misunderstand what I'm saying; the
bible does give way for the sheepfold/congregation to
care for their shepherd's needs. A prosperous
healthy shepherd/pastor is the result of a prosperous
healthy sheepfold. But what we've got today in many
cases are prosperous healthy shepherds and poor,
sickly sheepfold; there is absolutely nothing Godly in
cases such as this, and the sheep should never listen
to and obey this one sided teaching which results in
the man or woman of God being the only one living
the abundant life.


Let's look at a few characteristics of a good shep-
herd/pastor:
1. A good shepherd is one who would leave the
ninety and nine and search for the missing or lost
sheep. In other words, this shepherd ensures that all
of the sheep make it to green pastures.
2. A good shepherd will deny himself and do with-
out in order that the sheep may have.
3. A good shepherd will never, never leave his
sheep living low in the valley of need and poverty
while he's living high upon the hills of abundance and
prosperity.
4. A good shepherd will always lead the sheep to
green pastures and fresh drinking waters (Psalm
23:2). Even though the sheep may experience some
valley moments, he's not fearful because his shep-
herd is right there with him (Psalm 23:4).

When Yeshuwa made His grand entrance into the
earth the angel of the Lord found some good shep-
herds. Luke 2:8 states, And there were in the same
country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch
over their flock by night.
These shepherds were right there with their flock.
As a shepherd/pastor, where are you as it relates to
the sheep/shepherd relationship? Are you living in
the hills, while the sheep live in the valley?
Thanks be to God we do have many good shep-
herds/pastors in our land. I congratulate you pastors
and will always keep you in my prayers as the FOG
(Favor of God) is with you and your families.

Are you


* By REV ANGELA C BOSFIELD
PALACIOUS

THERE were times in the past when
a group of furtive boys or whispering
girls would be branded as being "up to
no good." The behaviour would be
deemed sufficiently suspicious to war-
rant close scrutiny. There are still some
of us who are "up to no good" and we
are well into our senior years.
Easter is a time to make a change
and find some good to occupy our
time. This new beginning, this spring-
time energy, serves to give us the out-
look and the output that we need to do
something worthwhile.
Imagine an eight year-old who wants
to be a missionary now, not when she
grows, up. Through .World Vision, she
provides a family with a dairy goat in a
third world country by asking all her
neighbours to donate toward the $75


'up to something' good?


she needs. Next
she begins to
fight malaria in
Africa by selling -
homemade '
drawings and -
paintings n g
(drawn by her
five-year old .
brother, three-
year old sister
and herself) in
her father's
workplace. These are all her own ideas,
and her story is just one of the many in
World-Changers: Live to Serve.
If you plant a garden, then this is the
time for the blossoms to come into
their own. It is dry enough for the
desert roses to be at their best along
with ,marigolds and petunias, while
inipatiens will survive quite nicely in
the shade. This is one level of doing


something good for the earth, for the
tourists, the neighbours, the members
of one's household, for oneself and all
to the glory of God.
You may be planning to visit the
floating bookstore or some other local
shop to purchase items for yourself.
What if you bought two of everything
to share with different persons who
may not be able to afford the item?
What if you went through all of your
closets again, scrutinised books to
donate to the College of the Bahamas,
a school or local institution, and gener-
ally shared some of the possessions
that you have in abundance with some-
one who has none at all? If it is true
that what you do for others adds time
to your life, then it is a wonderful way
for everyone to win. The spirit of
Easter is captured not so much in our
actions but in God"s actions. Mti the
midst of the violence, injustice, and


brutality of Good Friday, God was up
to something good so as to give the day
its name. By Easter Sunday morning,
God was up to something magnificent,
and when Pentecost comes, we will be
off the charts with the power that is
showered on the believers.
Are you a believer? Do you join the
centurion and say in your own words,
"truly this was the Son of God?" If you
are ready to be still enough in the pres-
ence of the Lord you will become a
chrysalis for Christ. Wrapped in holy
bands of prayer, the Holy Spirit will
begin the work of transforming you on
the inside to show the butterfly on the
outside as the wonderful work of God.
Then, when we meet God face to
face and we are asked how did we
spend our limited time on. earth, we
can smile and say quite honestly, 'Lord,
in your name and for your sake. I was
up to something really great.

Public figures and private lives


E By FR CHARLES HENRY


GOVERNOR Elliot Spitzer of New
York is the latest public official to be
caught in the ethical dilemma involv-
ing public life and personal privacy.
What are the lines that should be
drawn or the distinctions made
between a politician's public and his or
her personal life?
Everyone has a right to privacy, or,
as Justice Louis D Brandeis put it,
"the right to be left alone;" and that
includes public figures. At the same
time, when someone goes into public
life, he must understand that what
might be considered private for a pri-
vate individual can become a matter of,
reasonable public interest for the pub-
lic.
Everyone laughs at wedding recep-
tions when the groom says for the first
time: "My wife and I." It's part of the
ritual that marks the change from
bachelor to married man. A person in
public office is similarly someone with
a new persona. He or she is no longer
completely private, and they became
so voluntarily.
The less than total absorption of the
private into the public sphere means
that people will draw the dividing line
between the two in different places.
Not people alone; nations too appar-


"...This is not to say that for public figures,
as far as the public is concerned, anything
goes. It's just that bad behaviour no longer
equals expulsion from office."
Fr Charles Henry


ently, or cultures. The French, for
example, regard the private lives of
their officials as quite extraneous to
their public roles. Americans don't.
Some spheres of public concern,
however, are beyond dispute. If a pri-
vate matter affects the performance of
a public official's duties, most people
would regard it as no longer private.
Every year, for instance, the US
President submits to a complete physi-
cal, which is made public, for the obvi-
ous reason that the health of the
President is of key importance to the
nation. By extension, illnesses that
affect performance would similarly
merit public scrutiny. Patterns of
behaviour too, one may add, such as
substance abuse. What of mental ill-


ness? That depends, I imagine. Does
depression qualify?
Some years ago, Thomas Eagleton,
a candidate for the presidency, was
forced to withdraw when it was
revealed that he struggled with depres-
sion. This is not an easy area to assess,
though I suspect Lincoln himself
would hardly have survived the
Eagleton standards.
For many people, a standard
response to Spitzer's dilemma is that a
public figure should be honest and
trustworthy in public and in private.
How could a man, they say, who is dis-
honest in dealing with his wife avoid
dealing dishonestly with others in
other spheres? I even saw this logic
applied to executives in the Enron
scandal. They cheated on their wives
too. That's where their lying began.
I'm not sure that the logic really
holds up. One may as well also say
that since more than two-thirds of
marriages today fail. you can expect
the same levels of breakdown in other
kinds of personal relations. What real-
ly lies behind the common sentiment is
a very ancient belief in the unity of the
virtues.
In ancient classical culture, you
could not possess one of the four car-
dinal (or fundamental) virtues -pru-
dence, justice, fortitude and temper-
ance-without possessing the others.
How could a person who was intem-
perate, that is, who couldn't control
his appetite, be just or prudent or
brave?
Another important residual inheri-
tance in how we regard public officials
is the ancient belief that the goal of
politics was a better body politic.
Government had an essentially moral
purpose. Public officials were meant
to be first and foremost moral exem-
plars. And this applied to different
kinds of officials.
An orator, in Cicero's definition, for
example, was "a good man, skilled in
speaking." A definition like this makes
no sense today. Note that goodness
was part of the definition. All you
need now, on the other hand, is a com-
petent speech-writer and a
teleprompter.
The difference, in other words, is a
difference in what we expect of our
public figures. Charles Barkley once
remarked that be wasn't a "role
model" for anybody; he was only


someone who played basketball. The
unanswered question that lies behind
how we view the dilemma of public
figures is: just what do we expect of
them?
There's a substantial change, I think,
in the sort of expertise we expect
politicians today to have. We want
them to be responsible managers. We
want proficiency in matters of the
economy and in public policy. We
don't expect expertise in morality.
This is not to say that for public fig-
ures, as far as the public is concerned,
anything goes. It's just that bad behav-
iour no longer equals expulsion from
office.
Even in England, the home of the
honourable resignation, if the party
machinery gets behind a morally
embattled MP, he or she may still sur-
vive, unless the press keeps up some
sort of drumbeat. The party calculates
that they lose less votes by standing by
their man or woman, than admitting
guilt through firing.
Another issue related to our topic,
one that tends to dog people seeking
public office though more, it seems,
in the US than elsewhere is the sig-
nificance of youthful indiscretions. At
some point in a campaign and it has
already happened to Barack Obama
someone will ask the candidate if
they tried pot or cocaine while at uni-
versity.
We remember that former President
Clinton was faced with the question in
1992, and made a mess of his response.
He did smoke pot at Oxford, he said,
but he didn't inhale. Obama, asked the
same question, replied: "I inhaled fre-
quently. That was the point."
The difference is the reason why
one response remains laughable, and
the other a youthful indiscretion.
The public expects young people to
err, though I imagine indiscretions that
continue into adulthood would raise
issues of another kind.
One issue which I have not touched
on, which is central to the area,
remains the identification in the public
mind, indeed in everybody's mind, of
the moral with the sexual.
Public interest will sometimes trump
a public figure's privacy, as I noted
earlier, but the public interest is not
the same thing as everything the pub-
lic is interested in.
There will always be a fascination in
learning intimate details about the
lives of public figures, but that should
be no reason to deny them the right to
privacy everyone else has. Nor should
such figures be held to higher stan-
dards of personal behaviour than the
rest of society by a tabloid-style press
seeking only to sell newspapers.
If newspapers in fact focused more
on the policies and public actions of
politicians, rather than their personal
foibles, and the public itself saw
morality as more than who did what to
whom where, morality and society
would bothbe much better served.

'Finding the Living One among the dead'


WHY didn't they accept this good
news? It was good news after all.
Sometimes people will reject bad news
because they don't want to believe it.
But this was the kind of news that
every mourning loved one wants to
hear. The disciples wanted someone to
wake them up and tell them it was all a
bad dream.
If they wanted to believe that Jesus
was not dead, why didn't they accept
the news when it came? Perhaps it was
too foreign to their experience. After
all, dead men don't just get up and walk
out of their tombs. Do they? No, that is
the subject of idle wives' tales.
Commonsense dictated that they not
believe.
That is why many people today fail
to accept the new life that Christ is
offering them. New life is something
that is foreign to us. In this world all we
really know is death. I am talking about
the death of our society because of the
violence we inflict upon each other,
brother killing brother, friend killing
friend. We see darkness of despair and
we become frustrated and afraid.
Then someone says: "Your soul can
be alive and you can experience eternal
life with the Father." Jesus is alive; he is
no longer dead. And many respond:
"That is just an idle tale of religious
fanatics."
The women went to the tomb to view
death and were surprised to find life. It
is amazing that many of us in this coun-
try are holiday churchgoers.
On Good Friday we dress up in our
dark, dreadful clothes, and go to
church again imposing our culture of
funeral wear on yesteryear when Jesus
died. We were all over the place look-
ing for expensive fish and hard hot
cross buns, as if Good Friday is identi-
fied simply by these symbols.
Then on Easter Sunday our church-
es, which only see an average crowd on
a regular Sunday, is now bursting at the
seams, because we believe that that's
one of those days when we must be
seen in church.
However, we need to ask ourselves
some fundamental questions: Why did
we go to church? Did we go to hear
about a man who lived a good life and
died a noble death? Men like that don't
live today. Perhaps we went because we
thought we could learn something from
such a man's life. Maybe we went
because this is Easter and going to
church is what you do at Easter. Maybe
we went because someone made us go,
or we went out of habit.
Well, I have some news! Jesus is
alive! He has risen and is no longer in
the tomb! Maybe we expected to hear
that. Well not only that, but he is here
right now, in our country and he loves
us. And he has the power to change our
lives.
The Risen Christ can take the dead-
ness of our life and transform it into
new life. Regardless of how bad or how
good we think our life is. Jesus can take
N 't ndesu~ict it diid make flwonder-
fi~f HlWdodF' kitow tfikat EI' can do
'that?' Becau se ie" himself"Wa-s once


dead and he rose again. And through
his resurrection he brought new life not
just to the women at the tomb, but to
all whom would believe in his new life.
Some might say: "Oh that's just a
bunch of preacher talk." Isn't that
essentially what the disciples said about
the women's story? They said: "It's idle
talk. It's an old wives' tale." Even
though we all attended Easter Sunday
services, some of us were still not sure
what we expected. But we have heard
the good news.
In case it was missed, let me repeat it:
Jesus is alive. He rose from the dead.
He is with us today. And Jesus has the
power to transform our life into some-
thing glorious. He can take the sorrow
and mundaneness of our life and give it
new life. Jesus has the ability to raise us
from the grave fear, complacency and
dishonesty.
If that was a surprise and wasn't
quite what we expected, that is good,
because the good news of the resurrec-
tion comes to us as a surprise. It sur-
prised the women; they expected to
find a dead body. Instead they found an
empty tomb and angels. If this news of
the resurrection has invaded our
understanding of reality, that is good,
because the resurrection is God's inva-
sion of this dead world with eternal life.
The resurrection seems unreal to the
mind of this world, it is out of this
world, it is an invasion from another
realm.
We have heard the good news and it
may have shocked us as it did the disci-
ples so long ago. How will we react to
it? Will we write it off as an old wives'
tale, the idle talk of women and preach-
ers? Will you still be like Peter wonder-
ing what you have seen and heard? Or
will we run and tell others the good
news that Jesus is alive and he wants to
give new life to all?
I advise you to accept it, and believe
it. Jesus is risen from the dead and he
wants to resurrect our lives. Believe in
the resurrection, not just as an histori-
cal incident but as a present living real-
ity. If we will only believe, then that
resurrection power will change our life.
We will no longer be walking to the
tombs, the place of the dead, as those
women were.
Instead we will be running, with the
love of God filling our hearts. We will
be running in Joy, with the strength of
new life. We will be running to bring
others the good news.
Believe in what you have heard from
the angels.
"Why do you seek the living among
the dead? He has risen just as he said."
Run to those you know and to the
world and tell them: "He is Alive!"
Call a friend who is in despair or in
turmoil and share the good news of
God's love and Christ's resurrection
'w ith them I ,
"Eet's rule thfie wonmen'antd tell oth-

Easter 'brunch' for our senior residents


IT was in 1965, under the leader-
ship of Canon Addington C
Johnson, that the St Matthew's
Easter brunch event was born. The
brunch was a time to recognize and
celebrate the elderly of the commu-
nity by providing a special brunch
for residents of the various senior
citizen homes throughout New
Providence, as well as persons who
are less fortunate in the surrounding
Pond community
A number of groups from the
church, the social outreach commit-
tee, Anglican Church Women
(ACW) and the Christian Youth
Movement (CYM), all came togeth-
er to make a successful, festive ven-
ture bringing aged individuals
together from all parts of the
nation's capital, all in an effort to
spend time with them and make sure
that they enjoyed their Easter.
In the beginning, the Easter
brunch was a time where members
of the church felt the need to share
with persons who were less fortu-
nate. "St Matthew's feels the need to


PARISH administrator Winnifred Butler
talks with one of the seniors

bring these persons into our home,
into our worship centre." a coordi-
nator of the event noted.
At the end of the sumptuous meal,
the social outreach committee dis-


tribute 'baskets of love' to the par-
ticipating seniors. Some 200 plus
persons participated in this year's
joyous event.
"In an era in our Bahama land
where we tend to cast aside those
who've come to the twilight of their
years, this really sends a powerful
message that the church can come
together and help others enjoy
Easter," Father Don Haynes, assis-
tant priest of St Matthew's Church,
said.
"This is a wonderful reflection of
not only the ministry, but the love
that we hold for them and this is a
manifestation of what Christ is doing
in our lives. It is wonderful that it is
happening at a time such as this.
"Our senior citizens can go
through difficult times such as when
they are ill, depressed or hurting, but
because of the fact that Jesus lives
today, because of the fact of his res-
urrection, it gives them the strength
and power to face up to their times
of testing as they grow older," Fr
Haynes said.


St Anne's Anglicans visit Cat Island


WHEN Father Chester Burton went to Arthur's
Town Airport to welcome members of St Anne's
Church and its choir, he did not expect to see a char-
tered Bahamasair Dash 8 airplane.
While an illustrious welcome had been planned for
the 50-member contingent from St Anne's Church in
Fox Hill, never in the history of St Saviour's Parish had
such a grave undertaking taken place. Normally,
Bahamasair Dash 8's do not fly to Cat Island due to the
limited number of passengers travelling to and from
the island.
With the choir's tour off to an exciting start, it was a
pleasure and privilege for Fr Burton and Fr Edward
"Rex" Seymour, associate priest, and members of St
Saviour's Parish to entertain their brothers and sisters
from the holy hill of St Anne's.
The group was treated to a cultural explosion on
Friday night in the form of "Rake and Scrape" which
was held at the regatta site in New Bight, Cat Island. Of
course, many of St Anne's members had never seen
"Rake n Scrape" performed live on stage, and after-
wards many participated in dancing the "Heel n Toe",
a local dance specialty.
On Saturday, the group hiked to the top of Mount
Alvernia, which is the highest elevation in all of the
Bahamas. Afterwards, they visited and took pictures of
the eleven Anglican Churches located in the various
settlements throughout the island.
Although some of the churches may be unfit to cele-
brate the Eucharist, their tour of the island's churches
left a lasting impression on the members of St Anne's
who are accustomed to the stately edifices found in
New Providence.
Saturday evening the choir put on a soul stirring con-
cert at the parish church of St Peter's in Knowles. As
the melodious voices sang out "Let Heavenly Music
Fill this Place" persons standing outside would have
mistaken the choir for King's College from London,
England.
On Sunday morning, commonly referred to as "Low

Sunday", the entire Anglican Communion of Cat
Island was treated to the musical accompaniment of a
brand new state of the art keyboard donated to St
Peter's Church by the St Peter's Restoration Group.
Accomplished organist and rector of St Anne's Fr
Walkine tickled the ivories of the keyboard, the only
musical equipment in the parish. The members sang
out lustily to various Easter hymns. This weekend
proved to be one that will be remembered in the hearts
and minds of many members.
Many efforts have been made to establish ties with
the New Providence parishes and this is one which St
Saviour's would like to keep and plan for on their
annual calendar of events.


BISHOP V G
Clarke and the family
of Calvary
Deliverance Church
(CDC), East Street
South, are bubbling
with excitement about
the upcoming Family
and Friends Day serv-
ices, to be held
Sunday, April 6, at
8am and 10:30am.
This time of worship and fellowship,
conducted by the families of Calvary, is not
just reserved for the CDC family however,
but the entire family of God, neighbours
and community friends are invited.
While Webster's dictionary defines fam-
ily as a group consisting of parents and
children living together in a household or
persons otherwise related to one another
by blood or marriage, the members of
CDC understand family in a very different
way they consider ever child of God as a
member of their family because God is
love.
"We were all created by the Father
above and all of us, without exception, are
His children. We are therefore confident in
our belief that each and every person in
this little country of ours and indeed this
world, is our family.
"We consider all of. our neighbours a
part of our extended family in the Lord
and we are therefore extending an invita-
tion for all of you to join with us in cele-
brating this event," a representative for
the church told Tribune Religion.
