Company seeking

court order forcing

Harrah's to honour

contract or pay damages


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
BAHA MAR yesterday
said it was seeking a court
order to either force Harrah's
SEntertainment to honour the
$2.6 billion Cable Beach joint
venture contract or pay it
damages, having filed a coun-.
terclaim in New York accusing
the gaming giant of perpetrat-
ing a "sham" and "bad faith
effort" to renegotiate their
agreement.
Robert Sands, Baha Mar's
senior vice-president of gov-
ernment and external affairs,
told The Tribune last night:
"Baha Mar is really charging
Harrah's with bad faith in
attempting to renegotiate the
contract and its commitment
to the project. We are asking
the courts to either enforce
the contract or award dam-
ages."
Baha Mar filed a defence
and counterclaim yesterday in
response to a lawsuit that was
initiated by Caesar's Bahamas
Investment Corporation, the
Bahamian company that
would have held Harrah's 43
per cent equity stake, worth
212 million in the joint ven-
ture.
Mr Sands said: "Harrah's
complaint merely asks the
court to declare it had a right
to terminate the joint venture
agreement. It does not allege


wrongdoing by Baha Mar, and
does not seek any monetary
damages or any other relief
from Baha Mar, other than to
be released from its contract.
"Our claim, on the other
hand, charges that Harrah's
had no right to terminate and
must be held to their obliga-
tions, in addition to seeking
damages for Harrah's wrong-
ful actions."
In their counterclaim, the
Baha Mar companies Baha
Mar Development Company,
Baha Mar JV Holdings and
Baha Mar JV Holding -
alleged that they had spent
$285 million on the Cable
Beach project to date.
Some $85 million had been
spent by Baha Mar on designs,
planning, land purchases and
obtaining government
approvals since it and Har-
rah's, through Caesar's
Bahamas Investment Corpo-
ration, signed their joint ven-
ture in principle on January
12, 2007,
The $200 million balance
was previously spent on secur-
ing the initial 2005 Heads of
Agreement with the Christie
administration and acquiring
land needed for the 1,000-acre
project.
Baha Mar said its counter-
claim had been filed due to.

Controversy

continues

over Nottage
appointment
THE appointment of Rubie
Nottage as a Supreme Court
judge continues to cause con-
troversy.
Callers flooded radio stations
yesterday to air views for and
against her appointment.
Although Mrs Nottage was
indicted almost 20 years ago by
the United States on alleged
drug-money laundering charges,
and is still considered a fugitive
by the US, Mrs Nottage has


chosen to accept her appoint-
ment and is set to be sworn in
later this month.

AN INMATE charged with biting off a portion of a prison offi-
cer's finger and assaulting several others was arraigned in Magis-
trate's Court yesterday.
Brandon Roberto Humes, 32, of Cambridge Street, was arraigned
before Magistrate Guillemina Archer at Court 10, Nassau Street,
charged with causing maim, six threats of death and assaulting
prison officers.
Reportedly, Humes became unruly while he was being held at
HMP leading to an altercation between him and the prison guard
keeping his watch. Court dockets state that Humes on Thursday,
March 27, 2008, unlawfully caused maim to Sergeant David
Whymms.
Police say that Humes bit off a portion of officer Whymms'
pinky finger on his left hand. Court dockets also state that Humes
on the same day made threats of death to Sergeant-Whymms, .

POPULAR ladies boutique
Cole's of Nassau will make its
television debut this summer
during a segment on the
American make-over show
What Not To Wear.
Yesterday a production
crew, along with host Stacy
London; swooped into the
high-end boutique for an in-
store taping that will run dur-
ing an upcoming episode.
The episode, due to air on
July 11, will follow New Jer-
sey's Robin Kearns as a
cruise-ship passenger shop-
ping for cruise and cocktail
wear at different ports of call,
including Nassau.
Carol Brown, general man-
ager of the firm's Bay Street
store, said producers of the
show contacted her months
ago about the opportunity.
"I think they found us on
the Internet and they called
us and asked if we would be
interested in doing something
like this and if we had any
clothing available for their
customer, and I thought we
had a great selection so I said,
'Come on in'."
Excited about the interna-
tional exposure the show
would afford the'store and
The Bahamas, Ms Brown
readily accepted the offer, she
said.
"I thought it would be excit-
ing and again would give The
Bahamas recognition on their
television show."
What Not To Wear airs Fri-
day nights on cable network
TLC.
Co-host Clinton Kelly was
absent during yesterday's tap-
ing.


Bahamas missing

THE Bahamas is missing for
the second year running from
a major global tourism compet-

ances from the Ministry of
Tourism and the World Eco-
1omic Forum last year that it

His comments came afterThe Tri-

call yesterday alleging that officers
from the Central Detective Unit

of funds from the union's account.
Called for comment, Mr Douglas

that police had come on to the
organisation's property around a
week and a half ago to look into the
matter.
He insisted that police were, in

INGRAHAM HIGHLIGHTS SOCIAL SAFETY NETS, PENSIONS, PUBLIC SECTOR REFORM


PM asks Inter-American Development


Bank to concentrate on
By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
Coastal kherig@tribunemedia.net
Aw AS the Inter-American
AwareneSS Development Bank refines its
assistance to Caribbean and
If not us..Wo. Wo Latin American member states,
f not u... Wh? Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
If not now ....When? ham asked the bank's board of
governors to consider focusing
on priority areas such as social
... "safety networks, pension
8~. -- schemes and public sector
reform.
Representing the English-
speaking Caribbean at IDB's
annual board of governors
meeting, Mr Ingraham together
with Minister of State for
Finance Zhivargo Laing trav-
elled to Miami, Florida, to
.. attend the two-day conference.
Addressing the IDB board of
governors on Tuesday after-
noon, Mr Ingraham acknowl-
.edged all of the IDB's efforts
in helping the region in its eco-
.. nomic and social development


"The economic
development and
hence the social
progress of these
countries are
held back by the
untenable levels
of their debt ser-
vice obligations."


Hubert Ingraham


and directed the Bank's atten-
tion towards those areas which
currently require the most assis-
tance.
"I note the following priority
areas where assistance would
be particularly helpful to our
developmental processes: The
modernisation of administrative
machineries, broad public sector
reform, improvements in tax
administration, public expendi-
ture management, reliable data
collection and analysis,
improved national pension
schemes and stronger social
safety nets," he said.
Speaking on behalf of the
Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana,
Jamaica and Trinidad, Mr
Ingraham expressed apprecia-
tion for the implementation of
the 2007 Debt Relief Initiative.
Within the English-speaking
Caribbean, he noted, Guyana
especially benefitted from this
initiative.
The prime minister further


renewed the request for the
IDB to assist those member
states which are classified as
Highly Indebted Middle
Income Countries (HIMIC).
"The economic development
Sand hence the social progress
of these countries are held back
by the untenable levels of their
debt service obligations," he
said.
Prime Minister Ingraham also
thanked the IDB for its co-
operation with the Caribbean
Development Bank and for its
assistance to regional pro-
grammes designed to advance
trade and integration process-
es. He further acknowledged
the "considerable efforts by the
bank to meet the needs of mem-
ber states as demonstrated by
the record level of loan
approvals."
"Still, those increases are not
representative of loan approvals
for the constituency for which I
speak," he added.

as "a pretty good way to start
the second quarter of 2008".
He said the exchange was
receive "a steady flow of list-
ings inquiries", and now had to
"work even harder" to turn
them into actual business.

Laing, Bridgewater



collectively drop


124 names off their



challenged voters lists


* By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net
ZHIVARGO LAING and
Pleasant Bridgewater have col-
lectively dropped a total of 124
names off their lists' of chal-
lenged voters in Election Court
thus far.
Fred Smith and Philip 'Brave'
Davis, lead attorneys for Mr
Laing and Ms Bridgewater
respectively, made this declara-
tion yesterday, also informing
the court of the specific num-
ber of voters remaining on each
list.
Mr Davis said that Ms Bridge-
water is now contesting the
votes of 84 people, while Mr
Smith said that his client Mr
Laing is challenging the votes
of 23 people. Out of the 124
names dropped from both lists,
50 names are from Ms Bridge-
water's list and 74 are from Mr
Laing's list.
There is still a dispute
between the parties4n the case
on whether or not six people
voted on Ms Bridgewater's list.
Senior Justice Anita Allen
said on Tuesday that Mr Davis
would have to bring evidence to
court to prove that the six did
vote. Mr Smith has already told
the court that it.is his intention
to bring the individuals before
the court, and that they will tes-
tify that they did not vote.
Rachel Hamilton-Thomas, a
witness for Ms Bridgewater, tes-


..i.--.

tified yesterday that Analdo
Cooper, who is one of the six in
question, was at the polling sta-
tion on the voting line in front
of her on election day.
Mrs Hamilton-Thomas, a 17-
year resident of Gladstone Ter-
race in Marco City, testified that
she has known Mr Cooper since
he was a child, as she and his
father were friends. Mr Coop-
er was six people in front of her
on the voting line at Mary Star
of the Sea Catholic school, said
Mrs Hamilton-Thornas.
Mr Cooper used to live across
the street from her, said the wit-
ness, but he moved to the US
years ago before returning to
Grand Bahama. His father was


married sometime around June,
2006 and moved Mr Cooper into
an apartment in Caravel Beach,
which is outside of Marco City,
at around this time, the witness
said.
Louartna Dawkins, assistant
registry supervisor at the Regis-
trar General's Department, also
testified on her searches of the
birth records of voters being
challenged by Ms Bridgewater.
Ms Dawkins said she did not
find birth records for several
people being challenged by Ms
Bridgewater, some of who
included: Daniel Joseph
also known as Daniel Rigby;
Johnny Francois and Pauline
Lewis.


Kerzner modifies plans



for Hurricane Hole plaza


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter..
kherig@tribunemedia.net
AS SERIOUS economic woes continue to
plague the United States, the first direct reper-
cussions are being felt in the Bahamas as Atlantis
has announced changes and indefinite delays for,
some of its proposed projects.
Kerzner International Bahamas said that "due
to the current state of the financial markets", the
company has decided to modify its plans for the
redevelopment of the Hurricane Hole plaza.
"The Hurricane Hole Marina development due
to start this quarter has been restructured and
portions of the project will be deferred until a lat-
er period, with the time share component being
built at a different location on Paradise Island,"
Kerzner International said in a statement.
The existing Hurricane Hole complex, which
for the most part has been vacated, is still sched-
uled to be demolished in June of this year.
At this time, only the restaurants Zio Gigi's
and the News Cafd remain open. However, these
popular eateries are expected to soon close as
well.
George Markantonis, president and managing
director of Kerzner International Baha-mas,


explained that the new plan for the Hurricane
Hole plaza will include the refurbishment of the
complex and "short-term aesthetic improvements
to the plaza area."
Planning for the timeshare development will
commence immediately and construction is
expected to start within 12 months at a new, yet to
be announced, location, Kerzner International
said.
Mr Markantonis said that while the company
has every intention of proceeding with the retail
and entertainment facets of the development at a
later date, "it is not presently in a position to for-
ward a timeline."
Kerzner International last year purchased the
Hurricane Hole Marina, announcing that the
complex will be developed as Marina Village
Phase II.
Addressing the Southeast Rotary Club last
year, Mr Markontonis said that 200 to 300 time-
share units were planned to be added to the Mari-
na Village Phase II. He said it is envisioned that
the Hurricane Hole plaza will be developed into
"a real village, with living, breathing shops, six
food and beverage outlets, a completely redone,
renovated Hurricane Hole Marina that will be
able to take the larger yachts as well as the small-
er ones, the 150 and 200 footers."

Europeans may bail US out of recession


IF THIS past weekend is any indication of
what the future might hold, we predict that the
Europeans are going to shop the United States
out of its recession.
Although the airlines were flying light -
Jet Blue returned to Nassau from New York on
Sunday with 90 empty seats in New York
European accents, especially the British, pre-
dominated. Everything in Europe is so expen-
sive compared to the US that the impression
one got after a weekend in New York was that
Europeans with a pocketful of strong euros
were taking advantage of the weak dollar to
scoop up bargains in New York's shopping
marts. Everywhere one turned an English accent
could be heard whole families out on a shop-
ping expedition. Asians also dominated the
scene.
While the investment bankers agonised on
Wall Street, as if biting their fingernails could
ward off another slide or bank take-over, it
appeared that the check-out counters of the
many fashionable shops and the theatre booths
at night were minting foreign currency.
In this slow-down period our Tourism Min-
istry and the various other tourism promotion
boards should be out wooing Europe. Despite
our high prices, a vacation in the Bahamas, with
our dollar on a par with that of the US, an
increase in European visitors could possibly
bring that hopeful break-through government is
now looking for.
While Times Square, Fifth Avenue and
Madison were a bee-hive of activity this week-
end, the Bahamas should also be able to attract
Europeans seeking a vacation that their euros
can now afford. It is a shame that Bay Street is
not yet ready to receive them.
*** *
If Chief Justice Sir Burton Hall measures the
disintegration of society as being just over the
horizon when citizens refuse to blindly accept
decisions made by learned persons of presumed
integrity, he would be shocked to know that
that disintegration is not just over the horizon,
but is here and now.
If he had been with us in New York this
weekend with a group of journalists who sat
down to a panel discussion with seven distin-
guished foreign correspondents who had cov-
ered the Vietnam war, he would understand
that only those today who live in ivory towers,
removed from reality, still believe that the
majority of men and women have implicit trust
in the decision of their leaders.
Take, for example, award-winning journalist
Robert Pisor, author of "The End of the Line:
The Siege of Khe Sanh", who spent 1967-68 in
Vietnam as a correspondent for the Detroit


News. Pisor arrived in Saigon, fully believing in
his country, its leaders and the war they were
fighting. He described himself as a "hawk." At
the end of 10 days in Vietnam he was no longer
a hawk. He realized that Americans had been
"lied into a war."
These veterans in our profession wondered
why more than 30 years after the end of that
war, Americans allowed themselves to be lied
blindly into another war Iraq. Of course,
this generation knows little or nothing of the
Vietnam story and so no lessons were learned.
This is why lack of information encourages one
generation to stumble blindly along the same
path as an earlier generation history always
repeats itself.
The politicians blamed correspondents for
losing the Vietnam war. These correspondents
got out among the troops, the generals and the
Vietnamese people and told their readers the
truth of what was happening. They even got
close enough to the top brass on the frontlines
who bared their frustrated souls to these writers.
Their frustration was caused by the bungling
and propaganda coming out of Washington. It
was on that hostile battlefield that trust was
lost in political leaders back home.
Dan Southerland, who reported in Vietnam
for the Christian Science Monitor and is now
vice president of programming and executive
editor of Radio Free Asia, in his determina-
tion to get nearer the villagers and the truth of
'their lives even learned a little of the Viet-
namese language.
These correspondents moved freely over the
battlefield, catching helicopter rides whenever
a seat was available. Unlike the Iraq war where
the correspondents are imbedded with the var-
ious battalions and get a very narrow perspec-
.tive of the war, they roamed the battlefield.
One could detect a lingering anger in the voic-
es of some of these men as they told of a
nation's betrayal, and of a people's loss of trust
in its leaders. And so Sir Burton's words invit-
ing blind faith in the Commission's decision on
the Nottage appointment did not sit well with us
when we returned to Nassau on Sunday. Said Sir
Burton:
"At the risk of appearing elitist, it seems to
me that if the presumption of integrity does
not apply to the decisions of the (Legal Ser-
vice) Commission the membership of which,
chaired by the Chief Justice, includes a Justice
of Appeal, the Chairman of the Public Service
Commission and two counsel and attorneys
who have been in practice for at least 10 years
this would be symptomatic that, as a com-
munity, we have so serious a fracture in the
civil order that the disintegration of the society
is just over the horizon."


Look at the





Sandyport





beach it's





really lovely


EDITOR, The Tribune.
On the 2nd and 4th April
2008 The Tribune published full
page unsigned opinion articles
blaming the Sandyport canal for
the loss of sand on that part of
the beach owned by the Dela-
porte Condominium.
The photograph of "Dela-
porte beach" shown in the main
picture in both articles is the
extreme west 70 linear feet or so
that is walled off, owned and
kept private by Delaporte Con-
dominium and, on the 4th April,
this photo appeared right under
the headline saying "Beach
access claims considered mis-
leading."
No mention was made in the
article that this area of the
beach is closed to the public by
the Delaporte Condominium
whereas the whole rest of the
1,500 foot beach, mostly owned
by Sandyport, is in super condi-
tion and is open to the public.
Indeed, so much sand has
accreted over the now 18 or 19
years since the canal was creat-
ed that the whole area, includ-
ing the old West Bay Street
road is covered with masses of
sand.
There is no degradation. Any
observer can see that the sand is
now to the top of the retaining
wall (with public access points)
along the re-sited West Bay
Street being some four feet
higher than the road.
This is, of course, not due to
the canal but to the native
planting on the dune.


The concrete wall at Dela-
porte Condominium that makes
the west end of the beach pri-
vate, to my knowledge over 30
years old, goes right down the
beach almost to low tide.
This western Delaporte part
of the beach has eroded before
and been replenished.
I note the picture in the 2nd
April article of that same part of
the beach "looking good" is dat-
ed 2003 some thirteen years
after the Sandyport canal was
opened which the article blames
for the later erosion shown in
the main photo dated February
2005, three years ago, and just
after one of the busiest Atlantic
hurricane years. No 2008 pic-
ture was.used.
As I understand beach
mechanics, in a storm, it is the
north west counter current
caused by the Delaporte rocks
combined with Delaporte Con-
dominium's concrete wall right
down the beach, that causes the
sand to be lost from the western
side of the wall.
This is not new and, as far as
I know, has nothing to do with
the Sandyport canal.
Our understanding of the
real problem is that certain per-
sons living at Delaporte wish
the Sandyport Homeowners
Association to pay for sand to
be put on Delaporte's private


walled beach whenever it
becomes depleted.
However Government have
agreed with Sandyport Home-
owners Association that it is suf-
ficient for Sandyport to notify
Delaporte's Condominium
Committee when the canal is
cleaned (for which a Govern-
ment permit is obtained each
time) and to allow Delaporte
to take what sand they wish but
at their expense.
This is in fact done and the
Delaporte Committee does
arrange to take the sand it
requires.
Sandyport entered into a
written agreement with Gov-
ernment dated 22nd November
1993 granting public access, with
car parking and entrances, to
our portion of the beach.
Will the Delaporte Condo-
minium take down its wall and
do the same?
Please come and look at the
Sandyport beach (at least look
on Google Earth) it is lovely
and is used extensively by the
Bahamian public, especially on
holidays, and is a favourite wed-
ding spot for tourists.

Restrain reckless jitney drivers


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THIS letter is directed to jit-
ney drivers.
Because the traffic is getting
extremely chaotic in Nassau, I
think a good bus service would
really solve the problem, but
one would be putting their safe-
ty at risk when taking a jitney.
Many times, while driving, I
will notice the jitney drivers
stopping without giving any sig-
nal and while still in the driving
path, not stopping at the cor-
ners, overtaking three lanes of
traffic to turn left, running the
red light, cutting through gas
stations and parking lots, just


to name a few of the rules they
break. On these occasions, of
course, there is never a police
officer around.
What bothers me though is
that the public drivers are
encouraging the jitney drivers
by allowing them to enter into
the traffic lane when they are
cutting through the gas stations
and parking lots.
I realise that the drivers
depend on the number of pas-
sengers to make up their
income, hence their need to out-
run other jitney drivers in col-
lecting passengers.
There must be a way to mon-
itor and restrain these jitney dri-


vers..
Would the law allow individ-
uals to assist in this matter by
taking the licence number of a
jitney when the driver drives so
recklessly'and reporting the rel-
evant incident to the proper
authorities?
This might help as I know
there are not enough policemen
to be placed at various stations
during the peak business hours.
What is the solution?

Most of our Family Islands

are practically crime free

EDITOR, The Tribunes
Too often anything that happens in Nassau or New Providence
is attributed to the whole of the Bahamas. Tribune reporter
Brent Dean stated in his headline article of September 13,
3007: "Police statistics have revealed that the increased murder
rate this year reflects a wider trend of violent crime which is
skyrocketing across the country."
Fortunately violent crime is not skyrocketing across the whole
of the Bahamas.
Most of our Family Islands are peaceful and practically crime
free.
Perhaps police could provide the media with crime figures that
are broken down into islands.
Otherwise reports such as this could give potential visitors to
our shores the misconception that crime is rampant throughout
the Bahamas which it is not!

Fashion mogul fighting $I16m ,


tax bill from Canadian govt


INTERNATIONAL fash-
ion mogul and Bahamian res-
ident Peter NygArd is fighting
a $16 million tax bill from the
Canadian government.
Mr NygArd, who is a Cana-
dian citizen, has reportedly
stated that he does not owe
Canada's government because
he no longer lives there and
is now a resident of the
Bahamas.
According to a submission
filed by Canada's Justice
Department in that country's
Tax Court, Canada Customs
and Revenue audited Mr
NygArd in 1995 and 1996.
The department found that
the fashion designer "partici-
pated in many routine aspects
of life in Canada" during those
to years to effectively make
him a Canadian resident for
tax purposes.
Mr NygArd still uses legal
and medical services in Cana-
da, pays into the country's
pension plan, attends charity
events, belongs to corporate
tennis clubs and holds season
tickets to sports games, it is
stated in a submission by the
Justice Department.
It is also alleged that in 1995
and 1996, Mr NygArd spent
138 and 132 days in Canada,
respectively.
According to Canada's
Income Tax Act, persons who
live in the country for at least


I
i


183 days (or six months) of
the year, have to pay taxes.
However, those who spend


h. j
L^


less than that period time in
the country are not automati-
cally absolved from paying


taxes under Canadian law.
Decisions are made in indi-
vidual cases based on a per-
son's personal and economic
relations to Canada.
Although the premier man-
ufacturing facility of Nygard
International the company
founded by Mr NygArd in
1967 is located in Canada,
the fashion mogul contends
that he does not own or rent a
home in the country.
In documents filed with the
Canadian courts, Mr Nygard
further states that during the
two tax years in dispute, he
slept at his Winnipeg factory,
his Toronto office or in hotels
whenever he visited Canada.
Mr NygArd also contends
that he does not have a Cana-
dian bank account or insur-
ance, and is not listed in any
Canadian telephone directo-
ries.
His centre of interest, it says
in his court file, reniained in
the Bahamas during those
years in question.
The matter of the $16 mil-
lion tax bill is set to be settled
in court, with proceedings
scheduled to begin next Mon-
day in Montreal.
Mr Nygard currently lives
at his private luxury home
NygArd Cay, located at the tip
end of Lyford Cay.


BEC moves to calm fears over outages


BEC has moved to calm fears
that Monday's power outages
marked the beginning of anoth-
er season of "load shedding"
exercises by the corporation.
In a statement issued yester-
day, BEC assured the public
that the blackouts in some areas
of New Providence were due to
technical difficulties.
"Around 4.55pm that day,-a
33,000 volts cable in the Soldier
Road area faulted, which result-
ed in the tripping of a couple
of generators and a consequent
power .outage. Later on that


evening, at about 9.30pm, sub-
sequent to a switching opera-
tion, another 33K cable fault-
ed, which caused one genera-
tor to trip," the statement said.
It said that in both instances,
BEC crews restored power in
short order by using alternative
circuits so as to cause the least
amount of disruption possible.
The corporation apologised
Sfor any inconvenience caused
by either of the outages.
"We wish to state categori-
cally that these incidents were
due to faults that developed on
the transmission system and


were not due to load shedding,"
the statement said.
It went on to say of the fire in
Eleuthera on Wednesday morn-
ing which some suggested
might have been related to
BEC's services that the cor-
poration had "no challenges
whatsoever in Eleuthera at the
time of the incident".
"Furthermore, we are not
aware of any BEC issues relat-
ed to either of the recent fires in
- Eleuthera. Nevertheless, we
have directed a local BEC team
in Eleuthera to begin an inves-
tigation into both of these inci-


dents immediately and we are
also dispatching a team from
New Providence to assist them
with the inquiries and investi-
gations."

Marcia Musgrove: eighth National Teacher of Year 2008-2010


Marcia Musgrove, a nine-year veteran of the
teaching profession was named National
Teacher of the Year 2008-2010 during a high-
ly charged ceremony in which supporters of
all 11 finalists were rooting for their candidate
to win.
The Marine Biology instructor at C V Bethel
Senior High School responded to the honour
by thanking God and her parents, as well as her
eight siblings who she said have supported her
in her career to the extent of even transporting
teacher's aids back and forth to help her pre-
pare her classroom each year.
Ms Musgrove also recognized her principal
and colleagues for the role they played in mak-
ing her a better teacher.
The newly crowned winner said that she was
influenced by the good teachers that she had
throughout her time as a student.
"Not only are we influencing doctors,
lawyers, construction workers and hospitality
workers, but the next generation of teachers,
who will make a difference in the lives of our


Marine Biology instructor from C V Bethel wins during
highly charged ceremony at British Colonial Hilton


children," she told her colleagues present at
the event.
She admonished them to be steadfast in their
duty to teach the next generation of students to
create the kind of society that everyone wants
to live in. The winner received a $5,000 prize
from the Ministry of Education, a $2,000 prize
from Higgs and Johnson law firm, an all-
expense-paid trip to an educational confer-
ence, a two-day stay at the exclusive Pineapple
Fields Resort in Eleuthera, travel for two on
the Bo-Hengy to Pineapple Fields and the
Crystal Lamp of Learning Plaque.
The event, which was held at the British
Colonial Hilton, attracted a large crowd of
teachers, family members and well-wishers.
Minister of Education, Youth, Sports and


Culture Carl Bethel was also in attendance
and thanked the candidates, who he likened to
candles that burn themselves out to ensure
that others have enough light to see a better
future.
Held under the theme, 'Celebrating quality
teachers: achieving our dreams through edu-
cation', the awards programme featured a cross
section of winners from several different
islands. Capturing 5th place was Rochelle
Coakley, a first grade teacher at the Albury
Sayles Primary School and the Northwestern
District finalist.
Pearlimae Francis came 4th. The South
Andros District Finalist is a music and Spanish
teacher at the Mangrove Cay High School and
claims the formation of the Mangrove Cay


High School Marching Band as one of her
greatest achievements. Maureen Collins, a fam-
ily and consumer science and hospitality
instructor at the Eight Mile Rock High School,
came 3rd. Ms Collins was instrumental in start-
ing the Sunflower Restaurant at the school to
give students first hand experience in operating
a restaurant. Capturing 2nd place was Rochelle
Clarke-Russell, the Abaco District Finalist who
teaches at the Central Abaco Primary School.
The National Teacher of the Year Award is
held every two years and is a joint effort
between the Ministry of Education and the
Bahamas Union of Teachers (BUT).
The BUT introduced the 'Teacher of the
Year Award' in 1988, to recognize excellent
teachers in the public school system throughout
the Bahamas. In 1998, the Ministry of Educa-
tion combined forces with the union to con-
tinue the tradition. The award is the result of an
eight month search, including the selection of
the school winners, the district finalists and
ultimately the National Teacher of the Year.

Bahamas flights unaffected by American Airlines disruption


THE mass cancellation of American
Airlines flights due to aircraft inspec-
tions will not affect travel into or out of
the country, a representative from the
airline said yesterday.
The US' biggest carrier cancelled


more than 800 flights yesterday to re-
inspect wiring on its MD-80 jets to
facilitate compliance with government
regulations. On Tuesday, American
Airlines cancelled 460 flights, leaving
thousands of passengers in the US


stranded. However, these cancellations
will not affect flights into or out of the
Bahamas, an airline spokesman said.
"Nassau, Freeport, and Marsh Har-
bour flights are operated by Ameri-
can Eagle Airlines, not American Air-


lines, and Eagle does not fly the MD-80
aircraft. No flights to or from the
Bahamas have been cancelled, then,
as a result of the MD-80 re-inspec-
tions," Tim Wagner of American Air-
lines told The Tribune. A press release


issued by the airline said the inspec-
tions were conducted to "ensure pre-
cise and complete compliance with a
Federal Aviation Administration direc-
tive related to the bundling of wires in
the wheel well of the aircraft".

* BY LINDSAY THOMPSON
THE Bahamas has commit-
ted to build political support
and financial sustainability for
protected environmental trea-
sures in the region, the third
meeting of the Caribbean
Constituency of the Global
Environment Facility was told.
This commitment was made
by Ronald Thompson,
Ambassador for the Environ-
ment and permanent secre-
tary in the Office of the Prime
Minister, as he officially
opened the GEF meeting at
the British Colonial Hilton.
"As your representative on
the GEF Council, the
Bahamas would encourage all
members of the constituency
to work to further our efforts
to maximise our resources to
achieve sustainable environ-
ment for generations to
come," Mr Thompson said.
The Global Environment
Facility is one of the primary
financial mechanisms of the
United Nations Multilateral
Environmental Agreements.
It focuses on supporting pro-
grammes on key environmen-
tal issues.
These include: biological
diversity, climate change,
international waters, land
degradation, ozone depletion
and persistent organic pollu-
tants.
The Bahamas serves as the
GEF council member repre-
senting'all countries in the
Caribbean region.
According to the govern-
ment, through the GEF, the
Bahamas and the Caribbean
have benefitted over the past
decade from a number of
United Nations conventions
on the environment and from


PARTICIPANTS discussing the environment at the third meeting of the Caribbean Constituency of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) on Tuesday, April 8 at the British Colonial Hilton.The
meeting heard that The Bahamas has committed to building political support for protected environmental treasures in the region.


the National Agenda 21 on
sustainable development.
Mr Thompson said the
Bahamas looks forward to
continuing to represent the
Caribbean's needs at the GEF
Council, and speaking on the


unique requirements of the
constituency at the upcoming
council meeting from April 21
to 25. "Noting that our con-
stituency has a significant
number of Small Island Devel-
oping States, we know first-


hand that addressing the adap-
tation to climate change and
its related issues are priority,"
Mr Thompson said.
"As a result, making
resources accessible and using
those resources wisely will


greatly impact the way in
which our region develops
over the long term."
Through regional projects
such as the lntegrated.WVateii-
shed and Coastal Areal4an-
agement anrd Natonal


Biosafety Framework pro-
jects, "we have been able to
foster greater collaboration
among our countries in
addressing common environ-
mental threats and concerns,"
Mr Thompson said.

In attendance at the ceremony
was Education Minister Carl
Bethel, who said he was "proud"
to be in the company of such
extraordinary students, "who
despite the negative comments
about our youth, are excelling in
every facet of their lives."
He admonished the students to
use their accomplishments as a
stepping stone in achieving their
dreams through education.
The minister explained that
education involves more than just
attaining numeracy and literacy
skills. He said it also requires a
level of sensitivity, fair play and
tolerance, as well as the ability to
network, listen, share and unite.
"Further, the attainment of lit-
eracy and numeracy skills would
be insignificant as indicators of
character development, if our stu-
dents are not also trained and
equipped with the social skills, tol-
erance and forbearance, which are
necessary components of civilized
humanity," he said.
Congratulating the recipients of
awards and the organizers of the
event, Mr Bethel encouraged par-
ents to partner with the schools.
He asked them to be positive
role models and to continue to
steer their children along the path
of education and away from "vio-
lence and destruction".

THE Englerston Urban
Renewal Liveable Neigh-
bourhood Programme has
launched a major clean-up
of the area.
The exercise is intended
to help reduce crime,
improve the environment
and increase community
spirit three of the four
key objectives of the pro-
gramme.
Manager of the Engler-
ston Urban Renewal Cen-
tre Patrice Miller explained
that one of the overarch-
ing goals of the programme
is to reduce crime in order
to create liveable neigh-
bourhoods.
Ms Miller said one of the
things the police made
clear to her team is that
derelict vehicles are pri-
marily used to store illegal
drugs and weapons.
"With the eradication of
derelict vehicles you tend
to eradicate that kind of
crime within the communi-
ty," she said. "Once you
reduce crime some of the










N SAN JOSE DEL
GUAVIARE, Colombia
THE husband of hostage
Ingrid Betancourt vowed
Wednesday to plunge off into
jungle villages to hunt for clues
to her situation following the
failure of government-backed
effort to aid her, according to
Associated Press.
"I want to talk to the people
... to see if she is alive or not,
what her state of health is,"
Juan Carlos Lecompte said
after he landed in San Jose del
Guaviare, a steamy provincial
capital in eastern Colombia.
Lecompte told reporters he
would drive to outlying vil-
lages to seek information. He
said he had come to learn
about her situation, but has
not had any contact with the
rebels holding her.
There have been uncon-
firmed sightings of Betancourt
in the area, where the rebels,
far-right death squads and
cocaine producers are com-
mon.
A citizen of both France
and Colombia, Betancourt was
campaigning for Colombia's
presidency when she was kid-
napped in 2002.
Former hostages who spent
time with Betancourt say they
believe she has hepatitis B and
suffers from depression.
"Her physical condition is
extremely weak and it's true
that she suffers from liver
problems. But we don't know
if she has hepatitis," said her
ex-husband, Fabrice Delloye,
to Associated Press Television
News in Paris on Wednesday.
Chances of a quick release
seemed remote after leaders
of the Revolutionary Armed
Forces of Colombia, or
FARC, rejected a request by
France, Switzerland and Spain
to treat and possibly rescue
her.
In a statement posted on the
Internet on Tuesday,-the
FARC said it would not uni-
laterally release hostages and
would only exchange Betan-
court and other captives for
rebels imprisoned in Colom-
bia and the U.S.
The FARC also insists that
President Alvaro Uribe demil-
itarize jungle zones in south-
western Colombia where the
two sides could hold talks and
eventually swap prisoners for
hostages. Uribe has been
equally insistent that he will
not do so.
French Foreign Minister
Bernard Kouchner said Paris
will not abandon efforts to free
Betancourt and that he
planned to travel to the region
soon.
The French government jet
carrying the delegation that
tried to meet with Betancourt
remained on an airport tar-
mac in Bogota on Wednesday.
The delegation was planning
to return to France shortly.


Englerston Urban Renewal



Centre launches a major



clean-up of the area

THE RESIDENTS of Englerston placed their bulk waste at the front of their homes to be collected by the
Department of Environmental Health as part of Englerston Urban Renewal Liveable Neighbourhood clean-up
campaign.


other goals of Urban
Renewal automatically fall
into place."
Ms Miller said Engler-
ston was divided into six
zones with the clean-up to
take place over two days in
zone one.
Residents were encour-
aged to collect all of their
garbage and place it front
of their houses for pick-up
by the Department of
Environmental Health.
On Saturday, April 5
centre managers not only
supervised the clean-up of
each street in zone one,
they also took part, she
said.
Ms Miller said the main
aim for the day was to get
the children from zone one
to "participate in keeping
their community clean,
green and pristine" and
foster community spirit.
Those children and
adults who took part were
treated to breakfast fol-
lowing the clean-up.
Ms Miller said, "The new
Urban Renewal Liveable
Neighborhood Pro-
gramme is designed for
sustainability and that is
why it is not just something
that Urban Renewal and
Environmental Health is
doing, it is something we
have the community


involved with.
"With this venture and
partnership, we are hoping
to enforce sustainability
because we understand
that if you do it for them,
they will not be a part of
it, and it will not have any
value. But if they are
involved in it then they will
understand that this thing
has meaning and value."

Project

Therefore, the centre
manager said, the clean-up
will be an ongoing project
that will move into the oth-
er zones of Englerston.
She added that all of the
programmes planned for
Englerston to make the
environment more liveable
and to reduce crime will be
duplicated in eight other
urban areas of New Provi-
dence.
The centre manager for
the Kemp Road Urban
Renewal Centre Kolemae
Pedican agreed that the
clean-up campaign must be
sustainable and continuous.
"You cannot just do it
once; it has to be a month-
ly or weekly thing so that it
keeps in the forefront of
people's minds.
"In order to have a safe
environment we need to

Day celebrations


THE Fox Hill Festival Com-
mittee has announced its plans
for this year's Fox Hill Day and
Emancipation Day celebrations,
to be held from August 1 to 12.
This year, the committee not-
ed, Fox Hill Village and the rest
of the Bahamas will be cele-
brating 174 years since the
emancipation of African slaves
in the then British Empire.
"We invite all to come to Fox
Hill to celebrate this important
national event," said the com-
mittee in a statement. "This
year as usual, we have planned
a full list of events for the obser-
vances. We have decided that
in honour of the retirement of
Eric Wilmott from active work
in the festival that the 2008 fes-
tival should be named in his
honour."
The committee noted that
Eric Wilmott "is a Fox Hill
man" who was born in the vil-
lage 74 years ago this week.
"Mr Wilmott has helped to
manage the festival for at least
20 years. He is known as the
historian of Fox Hill. He is a
journalist by profession and
only recently served as sub-edi-
tor at The Nassau Guardian. He
was honoured.by Her Majesty
the Queen with the British
Empire Medal in 2007," the
committee noted.
It said the festival will be an
opportunity to celebrate Mr
Wilmott's accomplishments for
and on behalf of the people of
Fox Hill.
"Emancipation is not just the
celebration of freedom for peo-
ple of African descent in the
Bahamas. It is a celebration of
the freedom of all people of the
Bahamas. For as long as one

man is slave then none of us is
free. We invite all to come and
join us," the committee's state-
ment said.
It said that during the week
and a half leading up to Fox
Hill Day on August 12, the
committee has created a line up
of events, starting on the
evening of August 1 at 8pm
with opening ceremonies, and
ending later that evening with a
junkanoo rush-out and a dis-
play of fireworks.
The committee said it has
also scheduled a National
Emancipation Day celebration
for Monday, August 4, starting
at lam with an Emancipation
Day rush-out, headlining all of
the major junkanoo groups.
This will be followed later
that day with the Ecumenical
Emancipation Day Service, at
which the committee said it
expects the Governor General
Arthur Hanna along with other
government officials and vari-
ous community leaders. ,
The committee noted that the
governor general is a former
representative of the Fox Hill
constituency.
The service will be followed
by the annual senior citizens
luncheon organised by Olive
Mackey and the committee.
On Thursday August 7, the
committee said it will host a
special Emancipation Day and
Fox Hill Day Town meeting.


The topic that evening will
be "Guarding our Heritage",
on the importance of the Eman-
cipation Day celebrations and
how they affect the Bahamas
culturally, environmentally and
socially.
This will be followed by the
member of parliament's annual
reception, sponsored by MP
Fred Mitchell.
"Culminating our list of
events, will be our Fox Hill Day
celebrations on that August 12,
2008, starting at 11am. The pub-
lic is invited on that day to
attend the programmes pro-
duced by the Baptist Churches
St Paul's, Macedonia, Mt Carey
and St Marks along with the
other customary Fox Hill Day
festivities such as climbing the
Greasy Pole, the plaiting of the
Maypole as well as be enter-
tained with performances by
Visage.
"During the week, we expect
that there will be performances
and drills by the R-yaJ
Bahamas Police Foce4 Bapd,
the Her Majesty's Prison Band
and the Royal Bahamas
Defence Forde Band," the com-
mittee said.
Announcements will be made
for all stall holders shortly.
For further information on
the upcoming festival, we have
prepared an events schedule,
with some events subject to
change.

Man alleged to have aided father's escape



from cell, appears in court on drug charge


* By NATARIO McKENZIE

NEARLY a month after being
charged for allegedly aiding in his
father's escape from a police station
holding cell, Melvin Maycock Jr was
back in court yesterday to face a drug
charge.
According to court dockets, May-
cock Jr, 24, of Joan's Heights, on
Monday, April 7, was found in pos-
session of a pound of marijuana


which police believed he intended to
supply to another.
Maycock, who was arraigned
before Magistrate Carolita Bethel at
Court Eight, Bank Lane, pleaded not
guilty and was remanded to Her
Majesty's Prison.
He is expected to return to court on
April 23 for a bail hearing and date
for fixture.
Maycock Jr was charged in mid-
March along with Sgt Troy Lewis, 38,


in connection with the escape of
Melvin Maycock Sr, who is wanted in
the United States for allegedly being
a mastermind in a drug gang which
smuggled marijuana and cocaine into
the United States through the
Caribbean.
Maycock Sr was reportedly arrest-
ed by police on February 28 and
detained at Elizabeth Estates police
station. However, he was not in the
holding cell when officers went to


collect him but rather his son, Melvin
Maycock Jr, was there instead.
Both officer Lewis and Maycock Jr
have pleaded not guilty to aiding in
the escape of a prisoner and have
each been granted $20,000 bail with
one surety. Their case has been set
for June 10.
Maycock Jr is also fighting extra-
dition to the United States, where he
is wanted to face drug-related
charges.


Bahamas missing again


from major competitiveness


in global tourism survey


FROM page one

the opportunity for government
and private sector entities to
"benchmark" themselves
against other countries in this
sector and take "positive
action" to improve their coun-
try's standing, it claims.
Last year, Ministry of
Tourism spokesman Edwin
Lightbourne expressed con-
cern that the Bahamas was
not included in the 2007
report.
In a statement released on
the matter, he said that having
followed up with the WEF,
he was informed that it was
because the WEF could not
find a "partner institute" from
whom to collect data in the
Bahamas. He added, howev-
er, that the WEF expected to
be able to include the
Bahamas in its next (this
year's) report.
While the number of coun-
tries who were able to benefit
from inclusion in the report
did increase by six this year,
from 124 in the first edition,
the Bahamas was not one of
them'. '
The Tribune contacted Min-


istry of Tourism communica-
tions personnel yesterday
seeking comment on the
Bahamas' exclusion, but mes-
sages were not returned up to
press time.
The top ten countries in this
year's index are: Switzerland,
Austria, Germany, Australia,
Spain, United Kingdom, Unit-
ed States, Sweden, Canada
and France.
Researchers looked at fac-
tors such as air transport
infrastructure, natural
resources, cultural resources,
environmental sustainability
and regulations.
Giving some of the reasons
why Switzerland won the top
spot for the second year run-
ning, the report said that its
"pristine" environment, and
legislation to protect it, played
a key role.
Barbados, which came top
in the Latin American and
Caribbean region at 29, was
praised for its "positive atti-
tude toward tourists and
toward the value of tourism
in the country."
The report assessed it as
having "a regulatory environ-
ment that is quite conducive


to the development of the sec-
tor" and "effective destina-
tion-marketing campaigns."
According to the report's
methodology, hard data
informing the study was
obtained from "publicly avail-
able sources, international T
and T institutions and T and T
experts" in those countries
which were included.
This is not the first time that
the Bahamas has been left
out, apparently for lack of
available data, from interna-
tional reports. Another high
profile survey by Transparen-
cy International the Cor-
ruptions Perception Index -
also failed to include the
Bahamas.
According to researcher
Professor Johann Lambsdorff,
Transparency International
could only find two, rather
than the necessary three,
sources of data.
A message left seeking
comment from Frank Comito,
executive vice-president of
the Bahamas Hotel Associa-
tion and representative of the
Nassau Tourism Develop-
ment Board, was not returned
up to press time.

Controversy continues over




Ruble Nottage appointment


FROM page one
Yesterday, Love 97 CEO and host of
the radio show "Issues of-the Day",
Wendell Jones, fielded questions from
the public on the matter.
One caller said: "I agree with some
other callers that she has proven her-
self, that she has not done anything
wrong, and it would seem that she was
an upright citizen of the Bahamas.
"If she was of a criminal mind or on
that level, something else might have
popped up. But it seems that when
America says something, even with
Bahamians we all bow down when
America says it.
"Although the ambassador said he
didn't want to get in our business, he
put himself in our business when he
made those statements," the caller said.
The statements referred to were
reported in The Tribune yesterday, when
Ambassador Ned Siegel said that until
Mrs Nottage was sworn in, "one does
not know what the response will be"


from the United States.
It is also understood that other sitting
Justices have their own personal reser-
vations about Mrs Nottage's appoint-
ment.
Yesterday, Mr Jones informed his
callers that he was aware that Mrs Not-
tage and her husband, a former Cabi-
net minister in the Pindling administra-
tion, were both put on the "stop list" in
the early 1980s or 1990s and that their
visas were also cancelled by the US
Embassy here in the Bahamas. Whether
or not that status has been lifted is
unknown, Mr Jones said.
However, The Tribune has confirmed
that Mrs Nottage has travelled to the
United States within the past five years,
reportedly more than once.
While it was public information that
she was mentioned in the 1984 Commis-
sion of Inquiry, The Tribune learned this
week that there is still an outstanding
warrant for her arrest in the United
States on money-laundering related
charges filed in 1989, and that the US

rah's] to use the threat of
termination to attempt
to renegotiate the econom-
ic terms of a joint
venture."
The Baha Mar counter-
claim alleged: "Just at the
point when the co-investor
in the resort project, Cae-
sars Bahamas, was required
to start contributing its
share of the funds, Caesars
Bahamas sent notice that it
was terminating its con-
tract.
"The termination notice
stated that Caesars
Bahamas was terminating
because of a concern that
the necessary land rights
and government approvals
would not be obtained. The
termination notice went on
to say, however, that Cae-
sars Bahamas was willing
to 'explore alternatives' by
which it might remain
included in the resort pro-
ject.
"The claims reasons for


the purported termination
were a sham part of a bad
faith effort to renegotiate
the financial terms of the
contracts which, because of
the deteriorating financial
markets, were no longer as
attractive to Caesars
Bahamas."
Baha Mar alleged that
the contract did not contain
any provisions allowing the
two sides to renegotiate its
terms if the economic
climate changed, and said
the project still remained
"a compelling opportuni-
ty".
Caesars Bahamas' signa-
ture on the supplemental
Heads of Agreement signed
with the FNM government
on January 31, 2008,
showed that Harrah's was
still committed to the Cable
Beach project, and the
planned government
approvals and Treasury
land transactions were
acceptable to it.
This prompted the Gov-
ernment to go to Parlia-
ment to gain approval for


the Treasury land deal,
Baha Mar alleged, and "it
was only when those final
approvals and land trans-
fers were imminent" that
Caesars Bahamas sent its
termination notice.
Baha Mar alleged: "The
termination notice is a clear
breach of contract, and of
the fiduciary duties Caesars
Bahamas owes to its joint
venture partner, Baha Mar
Holding.
"Because the contract
involves the acquisition and
development of real estate,
and because the agreement
between the parties
expressly provides for spe-
cific performance,
Baha Mar Holding is enti-
tled to an order of specific
performance, as well as
damages for the bad faith
actions by Caesars
Bahamas.
"These are the 'alterna-
tives' that Caesars
Bahamas should now be
compelled to explore for
reneging on a contract at
the last hour after the Baha
Mar parties and the Gov-
ernment had invested con-
siderable time, effort, and
resources toward bringing
the development project to
life."
Harrah's termination
notice, sent to Baha Mar on
March 6, 2008, has effec-
tively left the Cable Beach
redevelopment project in
limbo, the gaming giant
having subsequently said
last week that it had 'no
interest' in the Bahamas
project when it withdrew
from a similar venture in
Slovenia.
Baha Mar effectively has
until March, 2009, to find
a new joint venture partner
or come up with revised
plans for Cable Beach,
possibly a scaled-down ver-
sion of the $2.6 billion pro-
ject.


government considers her a "fugitive
from justice."
A US official, political and economic
officer Dan O'Connor, said last week
that the Embassy in Nassau found her
appointment "surprising."
However, Mr Jones' guest, Godfrey
Eneas, saw the matter in a different
light.
"I find this topic very interesting, and
I find it troubling, and vexing, because
we are a sovereign country and we have
institutions in our country which assist in
the governance of our country.
"The judiciary is an independent arm
of government. The appointment or
selection of Mrs Nottage is not a politi-
cal thing. It is done by an independent
arm. We have the separation of powers.
"And this legal council is headed by
the Chief Justice (Sir Burton Hall). And
we as Bahamians must have confidence
in our institutions.
"And if we don't have confidence in
our institutions then we should not be a
country," Mr Eneas said.

Union
FROM page one
undermine President Roy Cole-
brooke and gain control of the
union's "financial area."
"If that happens the whole
organisation may as well shut
down," he said.
The union has been experi-
encing trouble at the top for
some time, with certain execu-
tives apparently unhappy with
Mr Colebrooke's leadership.
Mr Douglas claims that the
union the country's largest has
now filed a complaint with police
after some officers allegedly
demanded that the financial con-
troller, Sandra Ferguson, "leave
the building" when they came
on to the property.
"They were completely out of
order," said Mr Douglas.
He alleged that other union
officers were attempting to intim-
idate Mrs Ferguson into leaving
her office so that they could take
over the organisation's finances.
The incident occurred when Mr
Colebrooke and Mr Douglas
were out of office.
The Tribune attempted to
reach police officers who alleged-
ly led the probe into the union,
but was unable to confirm up to
press time who was involved.
A senior officer in the Cen-
tral Detective Unit's Commer-
cial Crimes section said she was
not aware of such a visit having
taken place, while Chief Supt
Glenn Miller said he would
inquire as to who may have been
involved, but did not return a
call to The Tribune.
Yesterday, Mr Douglas admit-
ted that as many as seven out of
the 12 union officers may be
against Mr Colebrooke, who was
elected in June, 2006.
He added: "We have had sit-
uations before but to be honest it
has never risen to that level. We
know there has been an under-
current in the organisation from
the time that we had the last elec-
tion. It's unfortunate. Some offi-
cers did not accept the situation
clearly."
Mr Douglas said that, despite
the internal struggles, day-to-day
union business is proceeding.
"You have to bear in mind we
have organizers, shop stew-
ards...those people are still oper-
ating the union as normal."
According to reports, union
executives met with Harcourt
Brown, director of labour, and
Minister of Labour Dion Foulkes
earlier this month to discuss
some of the union' problems.
Messages left for Mr Brown
and Mr Foulkes were unreturned
up to press time yesterday, and
attempts to reach vice-president
Kirk Wilson for comment were
also unsuccessful.

-LOCAL NEW


WORK BY HOLLY AND LYNN PAROTTI the sisters will be presenting an exhibition of new paintings and prints.




The sky's the 'limit' for



Holly and Lynn Parotti


THERE will be sibling
"revelry" at PopopStudios:
Centre for Visual Arts on Fri-
day when Holly and Lynn
Parotti present "Limit", an
exhibition of new paintings
and prints by the sisters.
Holly's prints take a look
at the boundaries which
human beings create to pro-
tect themselves.
"In the physical world,
boundaries are things that
separate one thing from
another, like walls that sepa-
rate the outside of a house
from the inside, and fences
that determine accessibility
to the inside of a private area
or a structure to deter
entrance to the very same
area.
"Though they have no
physical substance, psycho-
logical boundaries act very
much like fences, separating
the personal component of
people from the public exte-
rior. Manufactured bound-
aries exist physically and cer-


tainly psychologically and
emotionally," said Holly.
She noted that boundaries
are not only created to define
areas or set limits, but also to
enable a sense of security and
safety by restricting access to
what is unwanted.

Boundaries
"Personal boundaries have
to do with self-respect and
self-preservation. Personal
boundaries are the armour of
our character thus enabling
us to feel enclosed and whole
as a person, possibly more
self-assured about who we
are and certainly more pro-
tected against the wounds
inflicted by the outside
world," she added.
While Holly's prints tack-
les boundaries, Lynn's paint-
ings focus on Great Inagua,
the southernmost island of
the Bahamas.
The plight of Inagua has


caught Lynn Parotti's atten-
tion the man made salt hills,
ghostly, symbolic rather than
representational, white skele-
tal calcified trees, a flash of
pink.
The tension is in the heavy
brush strokes, the sheen of
oil paint and viscosity of
water, evoking but never dic-
tating the reality.
"I am searching in these
paintings for the effect this
extraordinary landscape has
had on me. There is a meet-
ing and clash of the living and
the dead in the bleached
remains of trees and the
superlife of scattering fienet-
ic flamingos and the more
gentle ecosystem nursery of
the breathing mangroves and
other flora. The salt moun-
tains, the sea and the flamin-
gos create a superreal and
somehow unbelievable view
of life and of death as it is all
happening simultaneously
and is very visible," said
Lynn.


The studio noted that in
"Inagua: Untitled, Numbers
3-6", the salt crystals have
become "monumental, Auer-
bach-like strokes of dense oil
create a dizzying perspective
that contains something
chemical and foreboding. The
flamingos' tail feathers in the
salt pools create a strange
sensuous opacity; their
blurred movement reflected
in a frenzy of zig-zag hori-
zontals."
Parotti has given extended
life to the subjects through
the palatte with the impasto
layer of brushstroke and
colour densely laid on the
canvas in short bursts of ener-
gy. "There is anger here, and
desolation as she pushes the
limits beyond the literal,
pushes the limits of the rep-
resentational and symbolic
rather than gradually becom-
ing more resonant, pushing
the paintings to whatever lim-
its they will bear," the studio
said.

GGYA is a hit at Crooked Island High School


ONE of the least populated islands
in the Bahamas now has its very own
headquarters for one of the world's
largest youth skills and empowerment
programmes.
Crooked Island is the site of the
newest Governor-General's Youth
Award (GGYA) Family Island unit, it
was announced this week.
And with just over 100 students in the
high school, 17 have reportedly already
joined the GGYA.
They are active in several activities
including cycling, the debate club and


swimming, the programme's officials
say.
Many of the participants have also
attended youth forums here in New
Providence.
Under the guidance of Jerome Forbes,
the unit is now preparing for its first
expedition on foot.
They will hike a minimum of -15 miles
and camp over night. They have to cook
outdoors and carry all their equipment
in their special backpacks.
There are presently 36 GGYA units in
the Bahamas including units on five


Family Islands. There are currently
1,147 participants in the country.
"The GGYA is an exciting self-devel-
opment programme available to all
young people worldwide equipping
them with life skills to make a differ-
ence to themselves, their communities
and the world," said the programme
organizers in a statement.
They said that to date, more than 5
million young people from over 100
countries have been motivated to under-
take a variety of voluntary and chal-
lenging activities.

* KINGSTON, Jamaica
CEDELLA BOOKER, the mother of Jamaican music legend
Bob Marley, has died, a family spokesman said Wednesday. She was
81, according to Associated Press.
Booker died in her sleep Tuesday night at her home in Miami,
apparently from natural causes, spokesman Jerome Hamilton said.
Booker, a Jamaica native, was 18 when she married Norval Marley,
a British man 32 years her senior. Their son brought Jamaican reggae
music to international prominence, becoming its international image.
Bob Marley died in Miami of a brain tumor in 1981 at age 36.
"Mrs. Booker was the matriarch of a movement so powerful that the
mystical qualities of the Marley musical legacy remain strong and
potent," Jamaica Information Minister Olivia Grange said.
After Norval Marley died in 1955, Booker married an American
man and settled in Delaware. She wrote two biographies of her
famous son and recorded two albums, "Awake Zion!" and "Smilin'
Island of Song."

Young author visits West End Primary School


GRAND Bahama Young
author Rouen Robinson read
excerpts of his book "Random
Moments Rule" to students at
West End Primary School as part
of their weekly reading pro-
gramme co-ordinated by Old
Bahama Bay.
Robinson shared some of the
140 poems in his book, which he
describes as a "time capsule" for
his life and some of the relation-


ships that have shaped it.
"I was in a car accident last
year and it left me with time to
think about some of the goals in
my life that I haven't reached as
yet," he said. "One of them was
publishing a collection of my
poetry as a way of leaving my
mark on the world, to show I was
here."
The primary school students
were excited to hear the poems

Mr Robinson wrote over a 19-
year period, including one he
penned as a grade student.
"It was a blessing to see the
enthusiasm on their faces and the
pure joy in their reactions," the
poet said.
Mr Robinson was born in St
Lucia but moved to Grand
Bahama in 1984 along with his
family.
His father is Curtis Robinson, a


priest who heads St Jude's Angli-
can Church in Smith's Point.
Mr Robinson attended Mary
Star of the Sea Primary School,
the former Freeport Anglican
High School, Nova Southeastern
University and the University of
Nebraska.
He is currently employed by
Caleb Brett as a laboratory tech-
nician at the Bahamas Oil Refin-

rights and


return of


Dalai


Lama

* By AUDRA ANG
LUQU, China
More than a dozen Buddhist
monks staged an emotional
protest Wednesday in front of
visiting journalists at a
monastery in western China,
calling for human rights and the
return of exiled Tibetan leader
the Dalai Lama, said a monk
and a reporter at the event,
according to the Associated
Press.
The latest protest came as
Tibet's governor promised
"severe" punishment against
any independence activists who
disrupt the Olympic torch relay
when it passes through the
Himalayan region on its way to
Mount Everest next month.
The monks, whose numbers
grew to about two dozen during
the 10-minute incident, began
shouting slogans in Tibetan in
an outer courtyard as journalists
entered a prayer hall at the
Labrang monastery in Xiahe in
western Gansu province, which
borders Tibet.
"We want human rights, we
want the Dalai Lama back, we
want to preserve our religion
and culture," said one monk,
who switched to Chinese when
asked by a reporter from the
American Broadcasting Corpo-
ration.
Another, monk at the
monastery, who spoke to. The
Associated Pressby phone, said
the group waved the Tibetan


flag and shouted: "We're not
against the Olympics. We need
human rights."
The monk, who declined to
be named for fear of reprisals,
said he and the others were
worried about getting arrested
after the journalists leave.
"Once they leave, of course
there will be arrests," he said.
"We don't have human rights. If
we had real human rights, we
could speak our minds without
consequence."
The incident followed a simi-
lar interruption two weeks ago
during a closely scripted gov-
ernment media tour of Tibet's
capital of Lhasa to view damage
from anti-government riots that
erupted there last month.
Authorities have tightly
restricted access toTibet and
Tibetan areas of western Chi-
na where protests also broke
out. The sometimes violent anti-
government demonstrations last
month were the largest and
most sustained among Tibetans
in almost two decades.
The monk said up to 20
monks from Labrang monastery
were taken away and only three
or four have been released so
far. He added that he hoped the
reporters would come back:
"There's a lot we haven't yet
said."
ABC reporter Chito
Romana, who witnessed the


outburst, said Chinese Foreign
Ministry handlers observed the
protest but did not attempt to
block the monks. The group
walked away after senior monks
appeared and calmed them
down, he said.
Shortly afterward, a senior
monk told reporters the pro-
testers represented only a few of
those at Labrang. He said they
would not be punished by
monastery authorities, but could
face sanctions if authorities find
that they broke the law,
Romana said.
China's official Xinhua News
Agency reported only that a
group of monks had interrupted
the event, and said the visit
resumed soon afterward. The
Associated Press was not invit-
ed on the government-arranged
trip.
Just south of Labrang, armed
police manned a roadblock
leading from the town of Luqu
toward the monastery of
Xicang, some of whose monks
are believed to have taken part
in protests in mid-March. The
monastery remains closed to
outsiders.
The glass front of the town's
police headquarters was riddled
with holes from stones and oth-
er objects hurled by rioters.
Notices on the walls urged par-
ticipants in the protest to sur-
render to authorities while


unarmed paramilitary police
marched down the street and
stood guard outside government
buildings.
Tibet's governor said
Wednesday he was prepared for
Tibet independence activists to
make trouble for the Olympic
torch relay when it passes
through the Himalayan region.
Champa Phuntsok, the Chi-
nese-appointed head of the
Tibetan Autonomous Region,
said he believes supporters of
the Dalai Lama, blamed by Bei-
jing for instigating last month's
unrest, will try to use the his-
toric event to publicize their
cause.
"For these separatist forces,
the Olympics in Beijing will be
a rare opportunity," he told a
news conference in Beijing. "I
don't doubt they will create
trouble during the torch relay
in Tibet."
Thousands of raucous pro-
testers angry about China's poli-
cies in Tibet and its human
rights record have already dis-
rupted the torch relay's round-
the-world tour at stops in Lon-
don and Paris.
Heavy security has been
deployed in San Francisco,
where the torch relay continues
Wednesday, after protesters
there climbed the Golden Gate
Bridge to hang the Tibetan flag
earlier this week.

With the threat of political
violence looming in Zimbabwe,
southern Africa's heads of state
were summoned to an "extra-
ordinary" meeting of regional
nations to address the crisis that
has gripped the country since a
disputed presidential vote last
month, according to the New
York Times News Service.
The Southern African Devel-
opment Community, a regional
bloc of 14 nations, acted after
Zimbabwe's political opposition
complained about "the deafeh-
ing silence" from its African
neighbors and warned that the
electoral standoff could turn
increasingly violent without
international intervention.
A number of Western gov-
ernments and leaders have also
expressed serious concern that
after 11 days of waiting, the gov-
ernment has still not released
the results of the presidential
race, and have demanded that
the election tally be quickly
posted.
In calling an emergency
meeting of the southern African
bloc, Levy Mwanawasa, the
Zambian president and chair-
man of the group, seemed to
answer the opposition's call for
intervention. In a clear refer-
ence to the possibility of vio-
lence, Mwanawasa stated that
"nothing should be doie by
anybody that would further give
rise to heightened tension in
Zimbabwe."
Zimbabwe, which is a mem-
ber of the regional body, had
no immediate reaction.
It was
'rdly clear whether Zimbab-
we's neighbors many of
whom
have political or fraternal
bonds to Zimbabwe's 84-year-
old autocrat, the liberation hero
Robert G. Mugabe could or
would do much to defuse one of
the most ominous political
crises since Zimbabwe waged a
regional civil war some 25 years
ago.
As Zimbabwe has descend-


RIOT POLICE patrol central Harare Wednesday April 9 2008. Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, made an impas-
sioned plea for the international community to persuade President Robert Mugabe to step down, even as elec-
toral officials continued to delay releasing results of the March 29 elections. Independent tallies indicate Tsvan-
girai won the most votes, but not enough to avoid a runoff. The opposition fears Mugabe will use ruling party
militants and the security forces:to intimidate voters and rig runoff results as he has been allegedly accused of
in previous elections.


ed this decade into economic
and social chaos, logging 80 per-
cent unemployment, 100,000
percent annual inflation and a
hunger emergency affecting 4
million people, regional lead-
ers have been loath to express
more than mild concern, and
have almost never questioned
Mugabe's leadership.
Within the country, the oppo-
sition is at loggerheads with
Mugabe's ruling party, known
as ZANU-PF. The opposition
Movement for Democratic
Change claims that it won the
March presidential election out-
right, ousting Mugabe, Zim-
babwe's ruler since indepen-
dence in 1980. But Mugabe has
refused to yield, and his gov-
ernment has been accused
repeatedly of stalling, hoping to
rig the outcome.
A string of developments on
Wednesday offered scant hope
that the impasse would end
soon.
At a court hearing on
Wednesday in Harare, Zim-
babwe's capital, a lawyer for the


government-controlled Zim-
babwe Electoral Commission
suggested that a premature
release of the results could be
dangerous, and that the gov-
ernment might ignore even a
legal order to make the vote
public.
He argued that Zimbabwe's
electoral commission was still
verifying the results of the vote,
although the quasi-independent
commission long ago released
the tallies for parliamentary
elections held the same day.
Lawyers for the Movement
for Democratic Change, who
have asked the court to order
the presidential vote released,
said there was no plausible rea-
son to withhold the collated
results of an election whose
local outcomes had already
been posted, for all to read, on
the doors of some 9,000 polling
places.
But Mugabe's government
already has accused the opposi-
tion's supporters of trying to rig
the outcome of the vote. On
Wednesday, it announced the


arrest of two mote election offi-
cials on charges of falsifying
votes against Mugabe, adding
to the five officials already
charged. Zimbabwe's electoral
commission also accepted a rul-
ing party request for a recount
of votes in five parliamentary
constituencies, Justice Minister
Patrick Chinamasa told Reuters
on Wednesday.
The opposition says the
arrests of election officials are
an attempt to intimidate elec-
tion officials into awarding
Mugabe a victory that, under
any impartial accounting, he has
lost.-On Wednesday, the oppo-
sition standard-bearer and self-
proclaimed winner, Morgan
Tsvangirai, traveled to
Botswana, where he met that
nation's president, Seretse Ian
Khama. The opposition
spokesman, Nelson Chamisa,
said that Tsvangirai would meet
with heads of state in many of
Zimbabwe's neighbors "to get
them to appreciate the magni-
tude of the crisis in Zimbabwe."

EU split over US travel proposal


SBy CHARLIE SAVAGE
Globe Staff
The Boston Globe
WASHINGTON A US
counterterrorism policy aimed at
obtaining more information about
foreign visitors to tXe United
States is driving a wedge through
the European Union, prompting
a group of largely former com-
munist countries in the east to
defy the continental government
in Brussels.
The Bush administration is
poised to sign agreements with
Eastern European countries
allowing their citizens to visit the
United States without visas in
exchange for extra security mea-
sures including a new online sys-
tem in which their citizens would
have to submit personal informa-
tion to US officials in advance.
The negotiations are incom-
plete, and the details of the data
requirements are unclear. But
Western European countries,
which can already travel visa-free
are alarmed by the direct talks.
Some fear the eastern countries
will agree to tougher travel rules
than the western countries want,
thereby setting a precedent that
the entire EUmay be forced to
adopt. Accusing the United States
of a divide-and-conquer strategy,
EU officials have warned the
eastern countries that the entire
continent must have a single visa
policy and that only Brussels
can legally establish it. But a
group of eastern countries, led by
the Czech Republic, are moving
forward anyway.
"The negotiations with the
United States will continue,"
wrote Alexandr Vondra, Czech
deputy prime minister for Euro-
pean affairs, in a recent Czech
newspaper article. "We will not
be intimidated."
Such rhetoric is drawing com-
parisons to the bitter European
debate before the US-led inva-
sion of Iraq, when France and
Germany opposed the war but 13
former communist countries
backed it. The dispute made
headlines on both sides of the
Atlantic as France's president,
Jacques Chirac, called the dissi-
dents poorly raised children who
should "shut up," and they
accused Chirac of bullying them.
By comparison, the visa-waiver
dispute has received scant atten-
tion in the United States. But
once again, an American nation-
al security policy is roiling the
waters of the 50-year project to
integrate Europe into a single
superstate.
"It's a power game between
the ((EU)), which is asking for
more power, and the member


states, which depending on their
specific interests don't want this
to happen," said Takis Tridimas,
a professor of European law at
Pennsylvania State University
who helped negotiate the treaty
that brought Eastern European
countries into the EU.
SEstablished during the Cold
War, the visa-waiver program was
designed to facilitate business and
tourism with allies whose citizens
were considered to have a low
risk for illegally staying in the
United States. The program
allows nationals from 27 coun-
tries, mostly Western Europeans,
to visit America for up to 90 days.
Under US law, a country can-
not join the program if US con-
sular officials, who interview visa
applicants to screen out thkse
who might stay illegally, reject
more than 3 percent of that coun-
try's applicants. This rule has pre-
vented most of Europe's former
communist countries, which are
poorer, from joining. US citizens
may visit any EU member with-
out visas. Since the Sept. 11
attacks, some American policy
makers have come to believe that
the visa-waiver program is out-
dated. Terrorist attacks in Lon-
don and Spain, combined with
Western Europe's growing Mus-
lim immigrant population, have
raised fears that terrorists "home-
grown" there could use the pro-
gram to enter the United States.
At the same time, the Bush
administration has wanted to
reward Eastern European coun-
tries for their support on policies
such as the Iraq war, missile
defense, and CIA prisons, by let-
ting them into the program. In
August 2007 Congress passed a
law requiring all visa-waiver par-
ticipants to accept higher security
requirements. It also empowered
Homeland Security Secretary
Michael Chertoff to waive some
membership barriers provided
the countries meet the other secu-
rity requirements and cooperate
with the United States on coun-
terterrorism matters.
Although the new rules will
eventually be applied to Western
Europe, the Bush administra-
tion's first move has been to open
negotiations with the Eastern
European countries that want
membership. Adding to the
urgency, the power to waive some
of the barriers may expire in July
2009. In exchange, the adminis-
tration wants the eastern nations
to hand over biographical infor-
mation about citizens who plan
to travel to the United States,
data on foreigners who have
flown into their countries, their
own terror watch lists, and reports
of lost or stolen passports. The

KERZNER International's
decision to "defer" aspects of
its planned Hurricane Hole
redevelopment project on Par-
adise Island was "another nail in
the coffin" for the Bahamian
construction industry's short-
term prospects, The Tribune
was told yesterday, the Atlantis
owner having intended that 95
per cent of that work would
have gone to Bahamians.
Stephen Wrinkle, the
Bahamian Contractors Associ-
ation's (BCA) president, said
Kerzner International's move
made it critical for other major
private sector projects and gov-
ernment infrastructure ,works
to move forward and fill the
"void" in the Bahamian con-
struction industry.
"It's going to be a very tough
blow for the Bahamian con-
struction industry," Mr Wrin-


kle told The Tribune.
"When we spoke to them last
year, it was their intention that
95 per cent of the construction
work there would be done by
Bahamian firms. It's a signifi-
cant void for us.
"Unfortunately for our indus-
try, they [Kerzner] are excel-
lent clients of the construction
industry. They were great
employers of Bahamianisation,
and great employers of small
and medium-sized Bahamian
contractors.
"Somehow, we've got to get
something going, and they were
one of the hopes. They've
deferred it twice already, so I
wasn't surprised to hear the
news."
Mr Wrinkle said Kerzner
International's decision "makes
perfect sense", and showed how
the Bahamas was being impact-

ABahamian business owner
could be forced to close as
many as four businesses
within a six-month period,
The Tribune was told yes-
terday, if he is unable to find alternative
locations by June 2008 for the two busi-
nesses he is being forced to move from Par-
adise Island's Hurricane Hole Shopping
Plaza.
Robert Bocus has been left searching for
a new location for Zio Gigi's restaurant,
and the perfect alternative for the News


Cafe, following landlord Kerzner Interna-
tional's announcement yesterday that it
plans to demolish the Hurricane Hole Shop-
ping Plaza that month, giving the two busi-
nesses until May-end.
This is in addition to the two businesses
Mr Bocus owned inside the Nassau Beach
Hotel the. Bake Shop and La Cafe which
was closed in January 2008 to make way
for Baha Mar's now stalled $2.6 billion
Cable Beach redevelopment.
If he is unable to find alternative locations
for Zio Gigi's, in particular, and the News
Cafe, Mr Bocus will have been forced to
close four businesses within six months to
make way for major foreign investors who


have since been forced to restructure or
delay their plans.
Speaking to Tribune Business yesterday.
Mr Bocus said he would l. 1|;' looking like
we have been all along" for alternative loca-
tions for both his Paradise Island-based
businesses.
"We just can't find a good fit," particu-
larly for the News Cafe, he explained. Mr
Bocus said remaining on Paradise Island
was virtually impossible, as its other two
plazas owned by hotelier George Myers
and Sandals owner Gordon 'Butch' Stewart

BAHAMIAN architects
often miss out on major work
simply because they do not
know what projects are taking
place, an industry professional
told The Tribune, urging the
Cabinet and Investments Board
to be "a little more open" with
the profession.
Anthony Jervis, principal of
Anthony Jervis Architects, said
that while there was sufficient
"expertise" among Bahamian
industry professionals, too often
they missed out on opportuni-
ties with major projects because
they did not know they were
happening in time.
He suggested that Bahamian
architects should especially be


Ft


informed about major govern-
ment or public works projects,
and told The Tribune: "We
know we're being left out, but
can't work out how and why we
get around it."
Mr Jervis added: "We never
seem to know about these pro-
jects until. they're
announced....... A lot of it is that
we don't know what is going
on. Perhaps there should be
more transparency on this, and
this could happen more on pub-
lic projects than private pro-
jects.
"The solution seems to lie
with the Investments Board
(really the Cabinet), as they
seem to be the onei who sign
off on these projects."
Mr Jervis suggested that "a
little more openness .on the


Investments Board's part", par-
ticularly when it came to pro-
jects funded by the Bahamian
taxpayer, would create a more
'level competitive playing field'
from which Bahamian architects
could bid for work in this
nation.
Mr Jervis pointed out that the
Government and developers
were easily able to find out who
the qualified Bahamian archi-
tects were, and how to contact
them, because the Professional
Architects Act 1994 required
all professionals working in the
sector to be registered and
licenced with the Professional
Architects Board.

THE TRIBUNE_


Bilateral Bahamas



trade treaty with


EU is

* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
A BILATERA trade agree-
ment between the Bahamas and
the European Union (EU)
would have been "preferable"
to joining the agreement
obtained by the CARIFORUM
bloc for the Economic Partner-
ship Agreement (EPA), a lead-
ing attorney told The Tribune,
urging this nation to be careful
about letting others negotiate
for it.
Brian Moree, senior partner
at McKinney, Bancroft &
Hughes, told The Tribune: "I
would have preferred to see a
bilateral agreement between the
Bahamas and the European
Union. Many people would
have said this would never hap-
pen, but I'm not sure that can
be said with any certainty. I'm
not sure it's been said defini-
tively that they [the European
Union] would rule out bilateral
negotiations. "To the extent we
go in as part of a bloc, we have
to ensure that our interests,
which may differ from the
CARIFORUM countries, are
protected and negotiated."
Mr Moree said he saw no rea-
son for the EPA agreement's
text to be filled with so many
references to regional econom-
ic integration, arguing that this
was "not necessary" and only

there because it matched the
policy agendas of other CARI-
FORUM nations, who favoured
this objective.
Given that the Government's
stated policy of not signing on
to the CARICOM Single Mar-
ket & Economy (CSME), and
viewing regional economic inte-
gration as being counter to this
nation's interests, Mr Moree
said he felt it would be "very
difficult" for the Bahamas to
sign the EPA as currently word-
ed "unless we can carve out" or
obtain reservations on the inte-
gration aspect.
"Our national interests have
been subsumed into the nation-,
al interests of the majority
CARIFORUM countries, to
the point that we would be sign-
ing an agreement where over
and over again it commits you
to regional economic integra-
tion," the McKinney, Bancroft


& Hughes senior partner
warned.
"It's a trade agreement with a
great big hook in it dragging us
down this road. If we are not
extremely careful, we are going
to be sucked into an agreement
intended to achieve a result that
seems to be contrary to our
national policy. It seems to a be
a step down a road that I do not
think the Bahamas is on.
"Are we smart enough to
carve out our differences, or are
wee going to fall into the trap?"
Mr Moree asked. "The agenda
is so completely transparent,
because it's filled with refer-
ences to regional integration."
If the Bahamas signed the
EPA, Mr Moree said Bahamian
companies would face "higher
levels of competition from over-
seas firms" but in return would
also enjoy preferential access
to European markets.

Agreement is not signed


FROM page 1B


cial services.
Mr Winder said Barbados
was now poised to pass the
Bahamas as an international
financial services centre, join-
ing the ranks of Bermuda and
the Cayman Islands as
Caribbean nations who now
held a competitive advantage
in the business, despite this
nation having been in it for
longer.
"If the Bahamas finds itself
in a position where it can't sign
the EPA today, we might as
well understand that our growth
in the financial services industry
is going to be significantly ham-
pered, because of all these
issues and problems handicap-
ping us for the past 20 years,"
Mr Winder told The Tribune.
"Bahamian lawyers and
accountants must come to the
realisation that to continue to
grow our financial services sec-
tor, we must be prepared to
allow foreign lawyers and
accountants into our industry,
because they bring specialist
skills not available in the
Bahamas."
When Bahamian profession-
als wondered why their coun-


terparts in Bermuda and Cay-
man were earning twice as
much per annum, Mr Winder
said this was due to the extra
financial services business vol-
umes generated, because "those
two countries have allowed spe-
cialist lawyers and specialist
accountants to be present in
their jurisdiction.
"We as professionals need to
understand that if we're grow-
ing to grow our industry."
Mr Winder, who is deputy
chair of the Bahamas Trade
Commission, the body formed
to consult the private sector and
provide recommendations to
the Government on its
approach to the EPA and all
trade issues, said Bermuda and
Cayman had "already passed
us" on financial services.
"Barbados is prepared today
to allow in foreign professionals
to service foreign companies,"
Mr Winder said. "We see other
countries prepared to take glob-
al steps to becoming more com-
petitive, and Barbados could
pass us just as Bermuda and
Cayman have done.
"Barbados is now poised to
become the next financial ser-
vices centre to go to the next
level, and we in the Bahamas
are still finding ourselves locked
into those traditional positions


not getting us anywhere."
The Deloitte & Touche man-
aging partner added that spe-
cialist, highly-skilled attorneys
and accountants brought into
service international and off-
shore clients would help attract
more business to the Bahamas,
generating through their activi-
ties increasing foreign exchange
reserves and "sustaining the
lifeblood of the Bahamas".
The EPA could assist the
Bahamian financial services
industry through its require-
ments for a more liberalised
immigration policy, even if the
changes will be slight.
I By pushing the Bahamas into
permitted the temporary move-
ment of certain worker cate-
gories into the Bahamas for
periods up to three years,
including managers and senior
specialists who have been
employed for more than a year
by their European Union (EU)
based head office. Other cate-
gories to benefit from this
include independent profes-
sionals who have contracts to
supply services in the Bahamas.
All, though, would still be
subject to the Immigration Act
and the Immigration Depart-.
ment's scrutiny, with the work
permit regime still applying.
Meanwhile, Mr Winder said


the EPA would also enhance
governance in the Bahamas,
and aid the Bahamian business
community and foreign
investors by establishing clear
rules and laws to govern how
business in this nation was con-
ducted. Currently, these were
transparent to no one.
"The EPA will place addi-
tional requirements on the gov-
ernance structure of our coun-
try," Mr Winder said. "There
will need to be more trans-
parency on the rules and laws
governing business in the
Bahamas today.
"The rules and laws are not
clear, and to the outside world
we do ourselves a disservice.
Our investment and immigra-
tion policies need to be a lot
more clear on what you can and
can't do, and where. These are
minimalist changes in global
terms."
While many Bahamians were
questioning why the Bahamas
needed to sign on to any trade
agreements, Mr Winder said
one compelling reason was that
this nation could no longer
stand on its own in a globalised
economy.
He said this message was
brought home when the
Bahamian financial services


industry was subjected to sus-
tained attack by the Organisa-
tion for Economic Co-Opera-
tion and Development (OECD)
and its affiliates in 2000.
Since the Bahamas was not
part of a trading bloc or agree-
ment, such as the World Trade
Organisation (WTO), it was
unable to use this avenue to
protect itself against the OECD
by going to a dispute resolution
committee and arguing that that
organisation was discriminating
against this nation by forcing it
to adopt standards its own
members were not adhering to.
"The reason that we need to
enter trade agreements is that
the Bahamas, when you look at
when we were attacked by the
OECD, was unable to defend
itself because we were not part
of a trade bloc, and could not
ask for the same playing field
as members of that bloc," Mr
Winder said.
'"Being part of a trade bloc
would have helped to protect
ourselves. Being alone in a glob-
alised world is just not the right
strategy." ,
Mr Winder said that while the
Bahamas now had to integrate
its economy with that of the
world, the "key question" was
the level this integration would


reach.
He added that it was wrong
to compare the EPA with the
CARICOM Single Market &
Economy (CSME), saying:
"When you talk about the level
of integration, the level of inte-
gration under the CSME is
greater than the EPA. I think
the Bahamas is right not to sign
on to the CSME because we're
not prepared for that level of
integration."
With the EPA and other
trade agreements likely to fol-
low, Mr Winder urged Bahami-
an businesses to raise their
sights beyond this nation's bor-
ders and immediate profits, and
"become more creative and
innovative" in seeking to
expand and invest within the
Caribbean.
Otherwise, many would face
being "swallowed up" over time
by companies from other
Caribbean territories 'such as
Trinidad, Jamaica and Barba-
dos. Many were already present
in this nation through minority
stakes in Bahamian firms, such
as Sagicor's 20 per cent Family
Guardian interest and Barba-
dos Shipping & Trading's City
Markets involvement, biding
their time as they waited to cap-
ture the bigger prize.

I~r'U'q l In,


FROM page 1B
- already had eatery formats
Anthony's and Quiznos, and
would not welcome competi-
tion.
Mr Bocus said Eastern Road
would have been perfect for the
News Cafe concept, which
relied on ample parking and
outdoor space where its clients
could sit, but the area was not
zoned for commercial use.
Downtown Bay Street had
been tried before, a News Cafe
outlet in Charlotte Street having
been closed several years ago,
and Mr Bocus said the city of
Nassau's further deterioration
since they were there ruled this
out as a location.
"We'd like to keep the out-
door theme going, and there are
not too many places like that,"


Mr Bocus said. "There are not
too many places left on the
ocean either.
"We've been looking at
[alternatives] for a while now
because the writing's been on
the wall for a couple of years.
We've been banging our heads,
thinking out of the box, but it's
not been easy at all."
While not blaming Kerzner
International for his plight, and
describing Sol Kerzner as "a
genius", Mr Bocus said the
Government continued to take
opportunities away from
Bahamian businessmen by
approving the acquisition of
large tracts of real estate by for-
eign developers and companies.
"The Government keeps
putting all its faith in these big
projects, but look what hap-
pens," Mr Bocus added. He


described the public commit-
ments by successive Bahamian
governments on aiding Bahami-
an businesses as "a laugh; it's a
joke. The opportunities are not
being created".
The two Hurricane Hole
Shopping Plaza businesses
employ 50 people between the
two formats, and if comparable
alternative locations could not
be found, Mr Bocus said: "I'm
just going to have to pay every-
body off. I've got some good
people, but if we can't get some-
thing up and running right
away, they can't hang on for
me."
Besides the main Paradise
Island location, the News Cafe
has a smaller Palmdale outlet,
and Mr Bocus said the chain
was "hopefully going to put" a
new location into the Meldon
Shopping Plaza in Mackey
Street, just south of the turn to
Wendy's restaurant.
With Fidelity Bank
(Bahamas) having relocated its
branch from that plaza, Mr


Bocus said there was sufficient
car parking and outdoor pave-
ment space to accommodate the
News Cafe concept in a high-
traffic consumer area.
The News Cafe branch is slat-
ed to go on the opposite side
where Nick's Cafe used to be,
but Mr Bocus admitted: "Zio's
is still very much up in the air,"
With the News Cafe's exit
from the Hurricane Hole Shop-
ping Plaza having been con-
firmed, Mr Bocus added: "One
of the things that held us back
on Mackey Street was that we
did not want to go into it whole-
sale if we had longer on'Par-
adise Island.,
"Now that we know we are
out, we can concentrate on that
and get it up and running.
We've been working on plans
for that, and have got to get that
rolling. At least some staff can
hang on to that.
"It's just making sure we get
the permits in a timely manner,
as that can take longer than
building the thing."

obtained work on a Bahamas-

Bahamians were sometimes
"not counted in" because they
were mostly small firms or a
"one-man band".
"I think the expertise is here,
but it's not being utilised," Mr


Jervis said of the Bahamian

"One of the things we're lack-

ed by developments in the glob-
al credit markets.
He added that the BCA
would now attempt to schedule
meetings with the Prime Minis-
ter's Office to get an update on
the status of all foreign direct
investment projects, saying:
"The local market has not
stepped up to fill the void, and
it's going to be a difficult sum-
mer."
The BCA president told The
Tribune that he was not sur-
prised to hear that Kerzner
International had chosen to
delay parts of the restructured
project, with the timeshare com-
ponent initially slated for Hur-
ricane Hole due to be relocated
to a different location on Par-
adise Island, and started within
12 months.
The existing Hurricane Hole
complex both the shopping
plaza and complex at the back
of the marina are set to be
demolished in June 2008.
It had originally been envis-
aged that the multi-million dol-
lar Hurricane Hole redevelop-
ment would start in the 2008
first quarter and be completed
by the 2009 fourth quarter, cre-
ating 800-900 jobs at peak con-
struction. ,,


The retail and entertainment
sections of the Hurricane Hole
project had been delayed indef-
initely, George Markantonis,
Kerzner International
(Bahamas) president and man-
aging director said in a state-
ment, with the company unable
to give a timeframe for when
work would start on this.
In its statement, Kerzner
International attributed the
delay and restructured project
to current conditions in the
global financial markets, a ref-
erence to the financial system's
liquidity/credit crunch, which
has made it extremely difficult
for borrowers to either access
debt financing at all, or obtain it
at the right price (interest rates).
The main factor is likely to
have been the uncertainty
caused by developments in the
global economy, coupled with
the declining arrivals numbers
being experienced by the
Bahamian tourism industry.
It is currently very difficult
for companies such as Kerzner
International to determine the
ultimate outcome of all these
developments, and what the
long-term future holds. While
Atlantis guests were booking
their Bahamas vacations six
months in advance several years
ago, the booking window has
now significantly reduced, mak-

ing it very difficult for Kerzner
International to predict future
trends, occupancies and room
rates, too.
All things considered, it is
likely that Sol Kerzner and
Kerzner International decided
that the time was not right to
proceed with Hurricane Hole,
especially given the uncertainty
over whether there would be
enough demand and tourist
numbers to generate the spend
to produce the desired rate of
return on the company's invest-
ment.
However, if there is a silver
lining it comes in the fact that
Kerzner International was also
forced to defer its Phase III
expansion by the fallout from
the September 11, 2001, terror
attacks, yet still ultimately went
through with all aspects of the
plan.
This indicates that the com-
pany will still redevelop Hurri-
cane Hole to the full extent,


even though this has been
delayed.
On a more positive note, Mr
Wrinkle said the BCA had
agreed to co-host a job fair and
open house with the Airport
Authority, which was "seeking
qualified contractors who are
interested in participating in the
capital works on the airport pro-
ject".
This indicates that the $400
million Lynden Pindling Inter-
national Airport (LPIA) rede-
velopment may start this year,
but there is little doubt that
when combined with Harrah's
decision to pull out of the $2.6
billion Baha Mar joint venture,
Kerzner International's moves
with regard to Hurricane Hole
are likely to deal another blow
to business and consumer con-
fidence.
Especially seeing as these are
effectively the two largest
investors on New Providence
and the Bahamas.

Democrats draw



economic and



trade battle lines


* By CARL HULSE
c.2008 New York Times
News Service
WASHINGTON It is not
easy to draw a straight line
from the slumping economy to
the war in Iraq and a trade deal
with Colombia, but Democrats
are trying to connect those
dots.
Party strategists say that
President Bush's opposition to
additional economic recovery
proposals and his strong sup-
port of the trade pact provide
an opportunity to portray Bush
and his Republican allies,
notably Sen. John McCain, as
being insensitive to the eco-
nomic struggles of Americans
while spending billions each
month on Iraq.
"There is an economic argu-
ment to be made," said Sen.
Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.
"This administration has not
done what it should for the
middle class."
Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada,
the majority leader, said Tues-
day that he was preparing to
link the war spending directly
to the economy at home by
using a pending bill to finance
combat in Iraq as a proxy for a
second stimulus measure. He
plans to try to attach to the Iraq
money Democratic favorites
like an extension of unemploy-
ment benefits, a summer jobs
program and perhaps local
building projects.
"That will be war," promised
Sen. Richard M. Burr, R-N.C.
Bush and congressional
Republicans have long insist-
ed that war spending bills not
be converted into a grab-bag
of domestic spending projects.
If it is war, it might be one
that Democrats are willing to
wage. They increasingly see the
economy and the conflict in
Iraq mqrginginto a singularly
potent 'political issue come
November, given consistent
public opposition to the war
andxk increasingly bumpy
ecooniomy. -
"The good news is the presi-
dent has endorsed the stimu-
lus package," said Rep. Rahm
Emanuel of Illinois, chairman
of the House Democratic Cau-
cus. "The bad news is, it is for
Iraq."
But Democrats must be care-


ful. Any effort to overly politi-
cize the economy could back-
fire, since voters say they prefer
that the two parties cooperate.
And trying to add too much
domestic spending to the war
money could prompt another
showdown with the president
on Iraq spending, and Democ-
rats have yet to win one of
those.
Yet Democrats were pri-
vately not all that unhappy
when the White House on
Monday dismissed the idea of a
second stimulus plan, sAig the
first round of initiatives had not
had a chance to work.
Party officials said the admin-
istration position allowed
Democrats to sharpen their dif-
ferences with Republicans,
since the earlier proposal, to
send checks this spring to mil-
lions of Americans, was devel-
oped with significant biparti-
san fanfare. Democratic con-
gressional leaders are sched-
uled to be at the White House
on Wednesday afternoon and
plan to renew their call for a
sequel to the stimulus bill. It is
a call that seems likely to be
rejected again.
And the White House's
strong criticism on Tuesday of a
housing bill headed toward a
vote in the Senate comple-
mented earlier criticism of a
mortgage bailout by McCain,
the presumptive Republican
presidential nominee, tying him
and Bush together as like-
minded opponents of too much
government intervention in the
home loan crisis.
Bush's push for a free-trade
pact with Colombia figures into
this political picture as well.
Democrats believe his advoca-
cy for more free trade could
enable them to step up their
contention that Republicans
are too quick to give away
,Americanjobs, a position that
has resonated with Democratic
Voters in the presidential pri-
maries so far.
If nothing else, Democrats
would like to use the trade
agreement sought by Bush as
leverage to win concessions on
the war spending'bill or other
favored legislation. But officials
said the tone of a phone call
Monday between Bush and
Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the
trade deal was not a harbinger


of cooperation.
Republicans dismiss Democ-
ratic efforts to tie the country's
economic problems to the war
as unconvincing and flawed.
They say Democrats are sim-
ply changing tack since they
cannot easily criticize the mili-
tary buildup of the past year in
Iraq. Both sides acknowledge
that it has produced some mil-
itary results, though not the
political gains in Iraq that were
initially advertised as the ratio-
nale for the escalation.
And Republicans say
Democrats are misreading the
economic impact of the war.
From their perspective, a desta-
bilized Middle East could end
up roiling the U.S. economy
even more by driving up gaso-
line prices beyond current high
levels.
Rep. John A. Boehner of
Ohio, the House Republican
leader, said, "While American
consumers are dealing with
spiking fuel prices today, these
costs would pale in comparison
with those they would face if
radical jihadists or the Iranian
regime gained the upper hand
in the Middle East."
The exact role of the war in
the current economic decline
is in dispute, with many arguing
that there is no direct correla-
tion. The war has added to the
national debt, however, and
absorbed federal'money that
could have been devoted to
domestic priorities.
Rather than debate the esca-
lation in Iraq with Gen. David
H. Petraeus, Democrats would
prefer to spend the coming
months driving home these
concepts: a continued invest-
ment of enormous sums of
money in Iraq while needs at
home go unattended, the idea
that Iraqis pay less than Amer-
icans for gasoline and the
thought of the government in
S'Baghdadi'buildirig a: surplus
- while the United States strug-
gles with federal debt.
On Tuesday, Sen. Tom
Harkin, D-Iowa, said, "The
Iraqi government has billions
of dollars sitting in bank
accounts collecting interest,
while American taxpayers are
being forced to foot the bill."
That is a bit of economics
that Democrats think could pay
politically.

Monastery's 70th anniversary


ao. e str
S til1;^11.ar!i!


O n October 3, 1937, the
Saint Martin Monastery .
was opened at its present
Nassau Street location.
There, three young women: Winifred
Elizabeth Claridge and Lezretta Maria
Rahming of St Anselm's Parish, and ,
Avis Teresa Symonette of Sacred Heart
Parish began a journey of piety that has ~.j. .:
impacted thousands of Bahamian stu-
dents and families.
Though all of these women have since
passed on (the most recent being Sister
Maria Rahming who died on March 12,
2007), the work they began in 1937 con-
tinues to resonate within the Catholic
community and throughout the Bahamas
as a whole. Since 1937, the monastery has
housed many sisters who have all made
significant contributions to the communi-
ty.
The 70-year history of the Sisters of the
Saint Martin Monastery is highlighted in a
recently released magazine (shown) that was produced by Patricia Glinton-
Meicholas. The book, available at Catholic churches throughout the Bahamas,
tables the work of "ardent women in service to God, church and country".
Also, in commemoration of its 70 anniversary, the monastery will host a spe-
cial banquet on Saturday, May 31 at the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island.
"This is a very important historical time for this community...We in the
Bahamas usually celebrate 25, 50 and 70 year anniversaries. So this is very sig-
nificant. And being the religious people that we are, we know that 70 is a bib-
lical year for celebration. We've had a number of changes and transformations
in the community over these 70 years," said Sister Agatha Hunt, who is on the
verge of celebrating 56 years as a nun.
Sister Hunt came to the monastery on September 16, 1952 at the very tender
age of 18. She served in Bimini, first as a teacher, then as principal at the Holy
Name Primary School. Sister Hunt also served in Grand Bahama at the
Catholic High School. Then in 1977, she came to Nassau after completing her
Masters in Secondary School Administration from Barry University in Florida.
In New Providence, Sister Hunt worked at Aquinas College for seven years,
and then at St Augustine College for 13 years before finally retiring. Sister
Hunt is now 74 years old.
As she takes a retrospective look at the legacy of Saint Martins Monastery,
Sister Hunt believes that the highlight of the convent must have been the move
from a diocesan community being recognized as a Benedictine community.
"We started out as a diocesan community or -local community then we
became a Benedictine community, which is a more established religious com-
munity. The church gave us more of an independent status as a Benedictine
community. It was in 1962 when we began to associate ourselves with a more
established Benedictine community the Benedictine Sisters of St Joseph,
Minnesota," Sister Hunt recalled. This is a relationship that has been maintain
over the years.

'Sisters in service'


* By PETURA BURROWS
STribune Features Writer

THE picture that graces the cover
of Saint Martin's Monastery's 70th
Anniversary commemorative book
shows 11 glowing, humble smiles
worn by the Sisters of the
monastery. As silver hair protrudes,
and a few wrinkles settle in, these
women wonder who will carry on
the legacy for the next 70 years.
When asked about the young
Catholic women who are interested
in committing to her vocation, 74-
year old Sister Agatha Hunt, a
member of Saint Martin's
Monastery for the past 55 years,
said that she would like someone to
give her the answer to that exact
question.
"That's my question," she said
with an innocent laugh. "Why aren't
they interested?"
Growing up on San Salvador in
an era when Bahamian life was
much simpler, Sister Hunt didn't
think that being a nun was an
extreme lifestyle. She gained an
interest in the vocation through
looking at pictures of Catholic sis-
ters and reading about their humble
existence.
After expressing interest to her
parents, Sister Hunt, the eldest of
the three children, was encouraged
to pursue that interest. Father
Nicholas Kremer, then priest at her
church (Holy Cross Catholic
Church), also encouraged her to
enter into the vocation.
"But I really got interested when
I saw black Sisters. At the time, they
were called coloured sisters. They
came to San Salvador on several
occasions on sea planes; that was
how we got around then.
"And when I saw these black
Sisters for the first time it made me
think that this is really a possibility
for me. At first, I would only see the


white Catholic nuns in the books,"
she added.
So Sister Hunt began to find out
more about these black nuns. She
contacted the Sisters and they kept
in contact through writing back and
forth until she finally entered the
monastery in September of 1952.
As would be expected, the num-
ber of Sisters has fluctuated over
the years. There are now eleven
Sisters at the convent.
Sister Hunt noted that in a recent
meeting, the Sisters also tried to fig-
ure out why young women aren't
expressing interest in their vocation.
"Things are more available to
young women now, things that were
not around when we came around.
Women are more independent at
this present time and getting a
career is easier today. That too was
limited back then.
"I think that God still calls people
to this kind of life, but I do feel that
there are probably to many other
attractions out there for young
women. But we've concluded that
God knows what He is doing. He
allows things to happen and we
can't question Him. He must have a
different vision for the church in the
Bahamas," said Sister Hunt.
Sister Hunt also believes that the
need for freedom and to feel as if
one is in complete control, may be
reasons why many women are not
interested in becoming nuns.
"As you get older, I think most
women want their freedom. So you
don't want to voluntarily relinquish
this freedom. As a nun, you now do
what is necessary, not yourself, but
for the group and you do what the
church wants you to do for the peo-
ple," Sister Hunt explained.
"Also, living a life of celibacy, that
is, not being married, that seemed
to be foreign for Bahamians. But I
accepted that and lived with that

of senior


* By DR ALBERT S FERGUSON, JP

IN part one, I observed that the same "seniority
spirit" present in the secular environment, espe-
cially in the job environment, had seemingly
entered the Church of Jesus Christ in recent years.
Apparently, church leaders have not paid attention
to Jesus' statements regarding His views on the
concept and practice of seniority within-His
Church.
Additionally, I pointed out that Jesus never
taught, encouraged or tolerated humanistic and
ego-enhancing concepts like seniority, which
would elevate the status of one person above the
other in the eyes of the church community or in
the body of Christ. Jesus spoke clearly about His
position on the matter to James and John who
sought seniority. To the rest of his apostles, Jesus
indicated that the one who wanted to be the senior
one was to be the chief servant the one who
served the most, or who served everyone else, not
the other way around, (that is, the one everyone
expects to serve, conspicuously and ostentatious-
ly).
I know from personal, first-hand experience in
industry that seniority means everything in the
corporate jungle. But the attachment of the word
"senior" to a title meant even more, if that is pos-
sible! A division head might have the prestige of
being called the "senior division head," or the
product manager may be called the "senior prod-
uct manager," etc. The title of "senior" stirs up a
lot of very humanistic feelings. I believe that
attaching the word "senior" to church titles also
stirs up a lot of humanistic feelings and attitudes
within the Church of Jesus Christ. Maybe my read-
ers can correct me if I am wrong, or give their
input.
It seems to me that the "spirit of seniority" has
rubbed off on many church leaders so the same
feelings many persons are used to on their jobs
can now be enjoyed inside the church. Now, dea-
cons have rank deacons and senior deacons (a
senior servant or server?) What an oxymoron!


PART TWO


Now pastors appoint
associate or assistant pas-
tors so that, automatically,
they become the "senior
pastor," but in times past, .
the pastor only needed a
minister or two or a deacon
or two. The usher can now I
move to senior usher, the
adjutant, senior adjutant,
the psalmist to senior psalmist, the minister to sen-
ior minister and, not to be outdone, the bishop to
senior bishop or archbishop.
Leaders in the body of Christ stand condemned
for allowing some of the seniority issues I have
just discussed to exist within the church. It is,
what I believe is called, a sin of omission.
Secondly, leaders stand condemned for enjoying
the seniority spirit on their own behalf, (and get-
ting a constant high from it or experiencing strong
feelings of pride and exaltation from it), and then
encouraging and nurturing it within the church. I
am certain that God still resists the proud.
An individual can enter the gospel ministry
(ordained by no one because this is a free enter-
prise system and anyone is free to start a business
or church, subject to a business license and other
government requirements), and after renting a
building, can begin services and put up a sign
describing himself or herself as the "senior" pas-
tor. That there are no pastors under his or her
supervision does not seem to be an immediate
concern or issue.
I declare that the spirit of seniority is a yoke.
Everyone yoked to it forfeits or surrenders his or
her ability to lead effectively, in the manner that
Jesus did.
The scalar or chain-of-command principle,
which is built upon the seniority principle, is com-
mon and easily visible in bureaucratic organisa-


tions, such as state and local government, the pub-
lic or civil service or in para-military organizations
like the police force. The hierarchical system was
present in first century Rome at the advent of the
early Christian Church and the organisational
principles and its structure were copied by them.
Even today denominations are still copying them!
While today's secular corporate organizations
are becoming flatter, in an effort to maintain their
cost effectiveness and customer-focus, some
denominations are imitating tall, bureaucratic
organisational structures, moving the leadership
further and further away from the members (the
customers). Increased emphasis on seniority
moves church leadership further away from the
people to whom they must minister. To me, there
appears to be a direct relationship between
bureaucratic seniority and deficient leadership.
With the lust for greater seniority in the Church
of Jesus Christ, (along with the attendant egotisti-
cal pride), such leaders are capable of doing any-
thing. To me, it is scary.
So we rest this subject, for now, with an all-
important question -more seniority in what? Is it
greater seniority in one's compassion for sinners
or in one's wisdom and spiritual understanding, or
in one's capacity to care for and shepherd the
flock of Jesus Christ? Is it greater seniority in
one's leadership skills? Senior in what? This is the
question for all those who so proudly wear the
title of "senior" and boih embrace and encourage
the spirit of seniority. Please answer! We as mem-
bers need to know exactly why "seniority" and the
spirit of seniority are alive and well in the Church
of Jesus Christ!

Archbishop Pinder returns from visit to Rome


CATHOLIC Archbishop of the diocese of
Nassau Patrick C Pinder recently returned home
from his first ad limina apostolorum visit to Rome.
This visit is required of all members of the
Roman Catholic episcopacy once every five years.
It includes each bishop making a personal appear-
ance before the Holy Father and giving an account
of the state the diocese in his care. A special,
detailed report on the local diocese, known as the
quinquennial report, is sent to Rome in advance.
Archbishop Pinder had his personal audience
with the Holy Father, Benedict XVI, on Friday,
April 4.
The visit also includes the celebration of the
Eucharist and the Profession of Faith at the tomb of
the Apostle Peter at the Vatican, and at the tomb of
St Paul at the Basilica of St Paul outside the Wall.
There are also visits to the various Vatican depart-
ments (or dicasteries as they are known) which are

responsible for the different aspects of the life of
the Church.
It is the custom for the bishops of a region to
make the ad limina visit as a group. As such, the
bishops of the Antilles Episcopal Conference were
able to use the occasion to hold their annual plena-
ry meeting as well.
The meeting took place prior to the beginning of
the ad limina schedule and dealt with a number of
important matters. Among them was the election of
Archbishop Donald Reece, coadjutor of Kingston,
Jamaica, as the new president of the conference. He
replaces Archbishop Lawrence A Burke.
The bishops also approved a pastoral letter, "The
Gift of Life", which will be released to the public in
the near future.
The visit began on Monday, March 31 and ended
on Monday, April 7 after the bishops had been
received, as a group, by the Holy Father.

A matter of the heart


* By REVEREND JAMES
MOULTRIE
Were not our hearts burning within
us while He was talking to us on the
road...
Luke 24:32
SOMEONE once said, "The heart
of the matter is the matter of the
heart!" The story of the journey
from Jerusalem to Emmaus is really
a story of the heart. As the two disci-
ples journeyed home from the scene
of the crucifixion, they were talking
about Jesus and the events of the
day. Jesus had filled their hearts with
so much joy and hope that they
could not stop talking about Him
and h6w good He had made them
feel.
And now that He was dead, they
were returning with sad hearts to
their former professions. We can
only imagine how cold and empty
their hearts must have been at the
death of their hero. Their hearts
were heavy with sorrow and they
were deeply wounded by the events
of that day, and they spoke about
how they were numb and overcome
with grief.
They had invested their lives in
His ministry because they firmly
believed that He was the Messiah.
But death, and the cruel manner of


His death, reduced their hopes to
disappointment. It was impossible
for them to fathom that He would
die such an infamous death. So all
along the route they reflected on
Him and the void left in their lives.
At this point they had no knowledge
of the resurrection, although they
remembered that He had said that
He would rise again on the third day.


This story tells us that Jesus is
never far away. He joined them in
conversation and began to open their
hearts and minds to the idea of the
Suffering Messiah of Isaiah 53. The
words of Jesus began to warm their
hearts as He opened the scriptures to
them. It was a seven-mile bible study
which Jesus exposed them to,
explaining what had been prophesied
about the Messiah. All the while
they did not recognize Him. Perhaps
they could not identify with the
transfigured Risen Christ. Also, their
faith was not sufficiently strong to
recognize Him. And that is what they
needed most. In the conversation
they realized that this stranger loved
them and took the time to journey
with them. He connected with their
hearts.
They were so impressed by Him
that they invited Him to stay with
them and to eat with them. It was
only during the supper (symbolic of
the Last Supper, the Eucharist) that
they recognized Him.
Similarly, the Risen Jesus is with us
on our journeys and we too meet and
recognize Him in word and sacra-
ments today. So the resurrection of
Jesus opens our stories to the
prospect, not just of a good ending,
but of a glorious ending.
May the Risen Christ meet you
today in this Eucharist.


'The Road to Emmaus'


* By CLEMENT JOHNSON
LAST week Sunday we hear the famous reading
from Luke 24:13-31, "The Road to Emmaus".
I read somewhere a few weeks ago where some-
one asked the question: "Have you ever noticed
that some of the saddest words in our language
begin with the letter D? For example, disappoint-
ment, doubt, disillusionment, defeat, discourage-
ment, despondency, depression, despair and death.
All of these words sum up how Cleopas and his
companion were feeling as they travelled on the
road toward Emmaus. They had left the down-
hearted and confused band of disciples who were
afraid and puzzled over what had happened to
Jesus on Good Friday. The two men, as they trav-
elle. along, were also sad and disillusioned.
The master they had loved and followed had
been horribly put to death a cruel and degrading
death on a cross. Jesus had been made a public
spectacle, exposed to the jeers of all who passed
by. Only a week before, their hopes had risen to a
fever pitch when the excited crowds welcomed
their master waving palm branches and shouting
'liosanna' But row Jesus lay dea ina ,se led
tomb. Their hopes were dashed; the dream was
over.


Even the report of the women that Christ's
tomb was empty didn't raise their spirits; it only
confused them even more. The two despondent
disciples walking the road to Emmaus summed up
the situation very precisely when they said, "We
had hoped that he would be the one who was
going to set Israel free!"
Fragile
Human hope is a fragile thing, and when it with-
ers, it's difficult to revive. We need to note the
number of people who take their own life because
despair and discouragement have sucked the last
bit of hope out of their lives. When someone you
love and care for is overtaken by a serious illness,
which goes on and on, despair sets in. It almost
becomes impossible to hope for recovery. You may
even be afraid to hope because you believe that
you couldn't cope with another letdown.
"We had hoped...", Cleopas and his friend had
said. They were saying, "We don't expect it now,
but once we did. We had high hopes for the future,
but now those hopes are gone and all we have left
is disappointment."' .
We can ideint;iy Withthe feelings of these h''
disciples in many ways. For each of us the cause of


feeling down might be different, but it would be a
rare person indeed who could claim that they were
not affected by any of those "D" words disap-
pointment, doubt, disillusionment, defeat, discour-
agement, depression, despondency or despair.
As the two men walked along, a stranger joined
them. This was going to be the most significant
walk in their whole lives. The stranger asked them
what they were discussing. And so they poured out
their story to someone who seemed willing to lis-
ten. They tell the stranger all about their hopes
and their disappointments. The last thing they
needed was a brisk "cheer up" talk, or being told
to "snap out of it". He simply provides a listening
ear.
As the three men talk of their misery and disap-
pointment, the stranger walks with them. We know
that the stranger was Jesus. Isn't that a great pic-
ture Jesus walking along the road with his
despondent and confused disciples sharing their
troubles? Suddenly this 2,000-year-old story is
brought into the present. When disappointment,
doubt, disillusionment, defeat, discouragement,

'From membership to discipleship'


* By REVEREND ANGELA C
BOSFIELD PALACIOUS

THE Easter event requires a
response. Who can stand at the foot
of the cross on Good Friday and not
be devastated? Who can wait though
Holy Saturday and not imagine the
anguish of the distraught disciples?
Who can be there at the sunrise serv-
ice on Easter morning and not share
the apprehension of the women as
they furtively scurry along dark
streets to the burial site? Who can
ignore an empty tomb, confident
angels, and an elated Mary
Magdalene? Is Jesus the resurrected
Saviour and your Lord or not?
In John 15:12-16, the Lord is quot-
ed as saying: "My command is this:
Love each other as I have loved you.
Greater love has no one than this
that he lay down his life for his
friends. You are my friends if you do
what I command. I no longer call
you servants, because a servant does
not know his master's business.


Instead I have
called you
friends, for
everything ,
that I have
learned from
my father I
have made
known to you.
You did not
choose me but
I chose you
and appointed
you to go and
bear fruit-fruit that will last."
The original disciples spent time
with the Lord eating together, walk-
ing long distances, performing vari-
ous acts of ministries, talking, shar-
ing, and attending social events. This
is a good definition of friendship. We
cannot spend time with Jesus in this
way but we can get to know Him as a
friend all the same. The Lord is.
always with us and allows us to
become as intimately acquainted as
we make time for it to happen.


If you consider yourself a disciple,
then the following questions offer an
opportunity for self- examination:
What kind of disciple are you? Are
you indifferent or dedicated, lazy or
enthusiastic, confused or clear-mind-
ed, weak-willed or empowered,
unaware or informed?
To be a great disciple, there needs
to be proper instruction and faithful
obedience. How can you learn about
God's ways? The best way is to read
the Bible, listen to sermons and sem-
inars, to sit in prayerful silence to
speak and listen to God, and to seek
spiritual direction and pastoral coun-
selling if guidance is needed or a
troubling issue exists. Making a pri-
ority a relationship with God
through Jesus Christ in the power of
the Holy Spirit is the best thing that
one can do.
Once you decide to be a dedicated
disciple, what is the next move? A
target audience needs to be selected.
Ask yourself: Who needs the Lord?
Who needs help? Who needs you?


What gifts do you have to serve? Be
a part of the solution not a spectator
of worsening problems.
Who needs the Lord? Your family
members, friends, colleagues, neigh-
bours, associates, and perfect
strangers all need the Lord. Who
needs help? Anyone and everyone
needs help: single mothers, abused
women, alcoholic persons, drug
addicts, inmates in prison, the sick in
hospital, refugees, the oppressed, the
elderly and orphaned children. The
list is endless.
Take some time over the next few
days to ponder your response. Are
you as determined as Paul to leave
the old misguided ways of Saul
behind?
Are you the newly re-instated
Peter who has been forgiven of some
weighty sin? Are you the Emmaus
sojourners breathlessly telling of
your encounter with your living
Lord? The move from membership
to discipleship is completely up to
you. What will it be?


SISTERS, from 19

kind of idea of giving myself to God completely and
not to any one person.
"There were times as a Sister when I wanted to be
a mother, but I had to deny it. It looks like nonsense
or foolishness, but you are doing it for a special pur-
pose. Particularly now, some of our young people
are misusing motherhood and their sexuality,"
Sister Hunt continued.
While many younger persons are not committing
to becoming nuns, the monastery has a thriving
group of Benedictine oblates who have dedicated
themselves to service to the church and community.
Sister Hunt manages the oblates currently 33
women and men, two of whom are Anglicans.


(Benedictine oblates can be of any Christian
denomination).
"These are mostly married persons with families.
Most of them are grandparents, and they do work in
their respective churches. They commit themselves
to daily prayers as we (Sisters) do, and to social
work where they visit the hospital and homes. They
help with the many projects we have going on. For
example, in this 70th year, we've had three major
projects Bingo, a Tea and Fashion Show and a con-
cert. The big one is a banquet at Atlantis and these
oblates, and a committee that was formed, will
spearhead it," said Sister Hunt.
In her own experience as a nun, Sister Hunt
believes that her background made her decision


much easier. Coming from a home where discipline
was very important, Sister Hunt said that she was
attracted to the nun's disciplined lifestyle within
their convent. While she wasn't poor, or rich either
- having a father as a carpenter and mother who was
a homemaker Sister Hunt said that the idea of
denying oneself certain luxuries was intriguing.
"Self denial was something that I did at home as
well, but it was not to the extent where you would
do it voluntarily. We wore our habits (nun's robe)
for many years, and I liked the dress. You didn't
have to bother about what you looked like. It was
about simplicity and obedience. Obedience was
something I learnt from my parents, but living a nun
takes it a step further," Sister Hunt said.


ANNIVERSARY, from 19


in a statement in the 70th Anniversary
commemorative book, wrote of their
relationship.
"...I speak for all the Sisters of Saint
Benedict's when I say that we have
gained much from this relationship.
We have been inspired by your fideli-
ty to monastic life and to the people
you serve..."
Indeed, service, especially in the
area of education, has been the bench-
mark of Saint Martin's Monastery
over its seven decades. However,
Sister Hunt noted that the general
Bahamian public, even some
Catholics, know very little about the
work that the Sisters have done. But
in recent years, she added, the Sisters
have made a point to keep in contact
with the mediaand they have tele-
vised various- events in an attempt to


gain more exposure.
Sister Hunt noted that the
monastery enjoys a legacy that tran-
scends just catering to the needs of
Catholics.
"Really, we have more non-
Catholics than Catholics in our
schools. Earlier on we made it a point
to visit the homes of our students,
especially the ones with discipline or
various social problems. The students
who were touched with poverty and
financial problems, but they had good
potential, we tried to keep them in
school," Sister Hunt noted.
"But recently we're getting older, so
we're moving out of the schools and
getting into more social work," she
added.
In October 1988, Sister Clare Rolle
co-founded the Samaritan Ministries
during the episcopacy of Bishop
Lawrence Burke. In 2004, Sister Rolle
became director of that organisation


which works closely with the AIDS
Foundation in the fight against
HIV/AIDS.
Sister Annie Thompson was recent-
ly appointed as administrator of the
Nazareth Centre, located on Sister
Maria Rahming Drive in Millennium
Gardens. This home for orphaned
children was established on April 28,
2001. Over the years, Sister Agatha
Hunt and Prioress Mary Benedict
Pratt have served as administrators at
the Centre.
Sister Ena Albury currently serves
as assistant chaplain for PMH and
Doctors Hospital. And Sister Cecelia
Albury manages a day care centre for
the elderly at the St Joseph parish.
"So these are all former teachers
who've retired but are still involved in
social work," Sister Hunt noted.
Despite the historical impact that
these Sisters make; there remains a
sense of fear that this religious voca-


tion is an endangered one. Sister Hunt
said that when she came to the
monastery in 1952, seven other
women from different Family Islands
and one from Jamaica were admitted.
That took the enrollment to 20.
However, she believes that the largest
number of Sisters the monastery has
seen at any given time is 34.
Today there are eleven Sisters at the
monastery, most of whom are past
retirement age.
"Personally, I have fears, but I have
hope. I hope that God has a plan for
this way of life that has yet to be seen,
Particularly, I feel concerned because
of my own limited health in terms of
what I can do and who will come to
take my place, or who will replace me
when I am gone. I have taken the
place of other Sisters, but it doesn't
seem like we will have someone to
take my place," Sister Hunt told
Tribune Religion.

'No matter how tough time gets, God will



always make a way for the righteous'


* By PASTOR MATTHEW ALLEN

TOUGH times don't last; tough
people do. No matter how rough or
tough time gets, God will always
make a way for the righteous. David
puts it this way: Psalm 37:25 states, I
have been young, and now am old;
yet have I not seen the righteous for-
saken, nor his seed begging bread.
Let me assure you that this has
absolutely nothing to do with poli-
tics. I'm not nor will I ever be a
political party's religious leader.
Politics and religion have contributed
greatly to the mess that this country
finds it's self in today. The enemy has
effectively used these two divisive
tools to ensnare and deceive some.of
the brightest minds worldwide and
especially here in the Bahamas; if it
was possible even God's very elect
would be deceived.
As a nation, we're in a downward
spiral morally, spiritually and eco-
nomically despite all the rhetoric
coming out of the mouths of politi-
cians and religious leaders. Here are
two indisputable facts;
In the political arena the politi-
cian's quest is to see who gets the
Gun; the rabbit or the farmer.
In the religious arena the church
leader's quest is to see who can have
the largest church which means
larger tithes and offerings. As I
watch all of this unfold, I under-
stands more clearly why the prophet
Jeremiah was called "the weeping
prophet"
What's most disturbing about all of


this is that the
country's
grassroots
population is
so politically
driven and
spiritually
dead to the
point that
they seem to
possess no
form of A
awareness of,
or resistance
to the enemy and his agents.
We're very proficient at talking
about leadership, but we're failing
miserably in producing leaders. What
we've got is a lot of people leading in
various areas (political, civic and reli-
gious) who are leading for and with
their own best interest at heart. Our
forefathers, Sir Lynden, Sir Cecil, Sir
Kendal, Sir Randolph, Sir Milo, etc;
may not have been perfect, but they
were all leaders with the people's
best interest at heart.
Both major political parties of
today have failed miserably as
they've done all that they can to sell
the Bahamas to the nation's gods
and slave masters the foreign
investor. I believe with all of my
heart that our forefathers had no
idea whatsoever, that the knuckle
heads we've got in parliament today
would systematically and ignorantly
undo all of their hard work and
struggle for a free Bahamas in such a
short space of time.
The national question is this: How


do we reach our young men and
women? My answer to that question
is, What's our plan when we would
have reached them? Is it to turn
them over to the foreign investor
after we've trained them to be good
bus-boys, waiters, maids and
Junkanoo dancers?
There is a small percentage of
Bahamians who've benefited finan-
cially or otherwise that will speak of
their government's good (be that
FNM or PLP) while the majority of
the grassroots suffer/perish. Watch
this! Proverbs 29:18 states, Where
there is no vision (divine guidance or
revelation) the people perish. The
political, religious and the civic lead-
ers are not perishing because finan-
cially they're well taken care of; but
the people are the ones who are per-
ishing.
It is obvious that our elected politi-
cal officials don't have the faintest
idea what our forefather's vision was
for the Bahamas. So in order not to
look stupid or lost, whenever any of
them is asked about the national
vision for the Bahamas both the PLP
and FNM try to explain their party's
manifesto. If these manifestos are
their ideas of a national vision, then
as a nation, we are in more trouble
than the apostles John, Peter and
Paul ever saw.
If you don't think we're in trouble
as a nation just listen carefully to the
silly statements that are coming out
of the mouths of many of our lead-
ers. The worst of them is this "If
America closes her doors of tourism


to the Bahamas; we're through as a
nation", any persons making such
statements is nothing more than a
fool. It doesn't matter which office
they hold in this country or what
qualifications they have achieved; if
they've got a masters degrees, then
they should be regarded as qualified
master fools.
America is not God: 'Elohiym, el-
o-heem'; He and He alone is God.
Psalm 33:12 says, "Blessed
(Empowered to prosper) is the
nation whose God 'Elohiym, el-o-
heem' is the Lord Jehovah".
Our dependence upon other
nations to build and supply the
Bahamas has caused us to open our
doors to a lazy and corrupt spirit
which has become deeply embedded
in the hearts of many Bahamians.
But I've got good news for those
who would receive it; here it is: For
the eyes of the Lord run to and fro
throughout the whole earth, to shew
himself strong in the behalf of them
whose heart is perfect towards him.
