MP says judges should be
subjected to code of conduct
* By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
JUDGES should be subjected to a code of conduct and not be
beyond reproach, argued PLP MP Fred Mitchell in the House of
Assembly yesterday.
Following Minister of State for Legal Affairs Desmond Ban-
nister's presentation of an amendment to the Supreme Court Act
to give judicial powers to assistant registrars, the PLP MP for Fox
Hill said this change is pot enough.
He called for all judicial officers, including registrars and assistant
registrars, to be subjected to a statutory code which would give
lawyers and litigants the right to complain to the judicial and legal
services commission when judges and officers abuse their posi-
tions.
The code would introduce sanctions for judges who veer from

WITH almost daily reports
of Bahamians being killed in
gun crimes, government says it
has the plans and the means
needed to rid the country's
streets of illegal firearms.

said that government has been
in discussions with Acting
Commissioner of Police Regi-

an array of strategies to get
guns off the streets.

EXPOUNDING her life's achievements and pledging to
uphold the rule of law, Rubie Nottage was officially sworn in as
a Supreme Court judge yesterday at Government House.
Speaking 'at length for the first time publicly since being
appointed by the Judicial and Legal Services Commission, Mrs

"The Lord said to me, and he said to me in the beginning, I will
be the one who is glorified and that is what has happened," she
told the press.
Mrs Nottage said that while she felt it was "a little extreme" she
was not really disturbed by the criticism that erupted after it was
announced that she would become a Supreme Court judge.

Second man charged with

Timothy Henfield murder
A SECOND man charged in
the September, 2000, murder of
Timothy Henfield and conspiracy
to murder his brother was
arraigned in Magistrate's Court
yesterday.
Warren Ellis, 33, of Bond Street,
appeared before Magistrate Car-
olita Bethel at Court Eight, Bank
Lane, charged with the murder of
Timothy Janson Henfield and con-
spiring to murder his brother Mar-
vin Henfield in September, 2000. -
It is alleged that Ellis, along with
Shawn Saunders, 39, murdered
Timothy Henfield on Sunday, Sep-
tember 24, 2000. ,
Shawn Saunders, alias Shawn L '
Bruey, who is wanted for extradi- .....-'
tion to the United States on drug -.
charges, was arraigned on the mur-
der and conspiracy to murder
charges on Monday.
It is alleged that Ellis and Saunders conspired to murder Marvin
Henfield, 32, on Friday, September 1, 2000.
Henfield's body, reportedly burnt beyond recognition, was dis-
covered last March in southern New Providence in a burnt-out Hon-
da Accord.
Ellis was n6t required to plead and was remanded to Her Majesty's
Prison. The case was adjourned to September 8 and 12 for the start of
a preliminary inquiry.


Disabled man claims he and



family are 'living on the edge'


A DISABLED father of four
claims he and his family are living
"on the edge" and can barely sur-
vive because a court judgment in
his favour has been stalled for
nearly a year.
Wayne Anthony John, 44, of
Canaan Lane, off Shirley Street,
says he is owed more than
$700,000 after suffering severe
injuries in a fall from a tractor
trailer in Exuma five years ago.
Justice Anita Allen awarded
judgment in favour of Mr John
in July last year when he took
Supreme Court action against
February Point Resort Estates
Ltd.
She ruled the company "failed
to attain the standard of care
required of a reasonable prudent
employer" and was guilty of neg-
ligence.
In making the firm liable for
costs, she also left damages to be
assessed by the registrar.
But Mr John told The Tribune


Wayne Anthony John says he is owed more than

$700,000 from injuries sustained five years ago


that he has yet to receive a single
cent of his award and that his
family is suffering great distress
because of his condition.
"I am right on the edge," he
said, "I have four children, includ-
ing a son who suffers from
seizures, and I simply can't make
it on the money I receive in dis-
ability benefit."
Mr John said he gets $460 a
month from the government to
cover light bills, food and other
items. "This is supposed to sup-
port my family. It's my full
income. I have had to borrow a
lot of money on the back of the
judgment, but they keep putting
the matter back and now I have
been told to wait until August for
the next hearing. I am not sure
that I can survive until August."
Mr John's case dates back to
November, 2003, when he was
working on the February Point
resort jobsite in Exuma. He


received foot, hip and wrist
injuries when he fell off a flatbed
tractor trailer.
In his court action, Mr John
alleged negligence against his
employers, saying they failed to
provide proper equipment and/or
manpower for the unloading task
he was required to do.

Defence
The company filed a defence,
claiming Mr John's injuries were
caused or were contributed to by
his own negligence in failing to
ensure his feet were properly
placed while manoeuvring around
the trailer, and neglecting to wear
proper protective footwear.
However, the judge accepted
Mr John's version of events, that
no steel-toe boots were provided
and that he was given no instruc-
tions to wear such boots.


Mr John has suffered a string of
setbacks since the accident,
including the deaths of his wife
Joyetta and his 23-year-old step-
son Clifton Smith, who died in a
cruise boat tragedy.
"It has been a really hard time
for me.
"I have a boy who suffers
seizures and is unable to go to
school.
"I have all that expense and
the government will not help me,
even with food stamps, in spite
of my disability."
Mr John said he is unable to
work in his job as a construction
tradesman because he can't lift
heavy loads. "I am having night-
mares I can't sleep," he said.
The Tribune has made several
unsuccessful attempts to get a
comment from the registrar's
department. The person autho-
rised to speak was said to be off
the island.

THE lack of a proper court complex
may be hindering the effectiveness and
reliability of the judiciary, opposition MP
Alfred Sears told parliament yesterday.
The former attorney general warned
that a well functioning justice system is
vital to maintaining investor and visitor
confidence.
Speaking during his contribution to
the reading of A Bill for An.Act to
Amend the Supreme Court Act, the Fort
Charlotte MP also argued that the judi-
cial system is compromised because it
lacks independent control over its staff and facilities.
Mr Sears' contribution followed the introduction
of the bill by Minister of State for Legal Affairs
Desmond Bannister.
"If we are to maintain our status as a competitive
financial sector, as a leading tourist destination, it is not
the politician, it is the judiciary that must ensure that
the confidence of investors, the confidence of visitors
is maintained," said Mr Sears, while voicing his support
for the amendment.
The judiciary must also maintain "good governance"
..and has the power to.xule,that any minister. even the
prime minister, has exceeded his or her authority, Mr
Sears noted.
"That is why, Mr Speaker, this debate is so impor-
tant. I cannot think of, a more critical debate at a more
critical time in the life of our country than this debate
at this time," said Mr Sears.
The former minister of education asked when the
government would construct a new complex to house
the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal.
He argued that the Supreme Courts in Nassau and
Grand Bahama are operating under "inhospitable"
conditions, while admitting there was much the former
government couldn't do while in office.
"If the judges of the Supreme Court had the oppor-
tunity to speak today, this is what they would say: they
would say to the government that has been in office for


one year, that what we need is a plan
and what we want to see from you is the
plan to establish a judicial complex.
"We need to hear when the judicial
complex of the Supreme Court and the
Court of Appeal will be built. We need to
have a time certain. Mr Deputy, the pro-
visions under which our judges and I
admit our failure operate in the
Supreme Court must be addressed with
urgency," said Mr Sears prompting an
uproar from the FNM MPs.
Mr Sears also criticised the system
under which the judiciary has to defer
to government ministers for simple
repairs such as fixing a broken door lock.
This remark prompted Minister of
Education Carl Bethel to rise to ask for Mr Sears to
withdraw what he called a "loaded" statement.
However the deputy speaker did not agree to Mr
Bethel's request and Mr Sears did not withdraw the
comment.
During his introduction of the Bill, Mr Bannister,
who is also the MP for Carmichael, said the amend-
ment would give the assistant registrar the right to
hear matters in the same manner as the registrar and
the deputy registrar.
The amendment is the "first step in reforming the
process of the Supreme Court but onts own it cannot
expedite the work of the judiciary," he said.
"By itself, Mr Speaker, this amendment is not going
to speed up the work of the court.
S"It is not an answer to all of our problems in the judi-
cial system; but it is one.step in the right direction," Mr
Bannister said.
The amendment would allow assistant registrar's
to act as Masters of the Court without being dependent
of the registrar's discretion, Mr Bannister said.
"A Master of the Court is an office in the court in
England who has the power to do what judges can do
in chambers, dealing with mainly procedural and inter-
locutory matters and also taxation of bills of costs," MP
for Fox Hill Fred Mitchell later explained.
The House suspended until Wednesday May 7 at
10am.

o In brief


Guyana 'safe

to come to'

for CAIFE LT

GUYANESE Presi-
dent Bharrat Jagdeo has
assured the Caribbean
that it is safe to come to
Guyana for the tenth
staging of the Caribbean
Festival of Arts in
August.
He said that the gov-
ernment would leave no
stone unturned in ensur-
ing a "safe, secure and
nurturing Guyana" for
the staging of the
Caribbean's leading cul-
tural extravaganza.
President Jagdeo said
the festival "offers us the
opportunity of tran-
scending those things
that can blind, limit and
divide us as people, as
nations and as a region."

Blessing
He said the festival is
both a responsibility and
a blessing for Guyana: "a
responsibility because as
the initiators of the festi-
val, we understand that
in coming full circle, we
must be the standard
bearer of its journey into
the future; a blessing in
that once again we get
the opportunity to cele-
brate with our Caribbean
brothers and sisters, the
very finest offering of
our artists, to share with
them as we so love to do,
our legendary hospitali-
ty."
The CARICOM Secre-
tariat has expressed grat-
itude to Guyana for
agreeing to host the festi-
val when the Bahamas
stood down in July of
2007.


New daily

flights to New

Providence

from Freeport
M By DENISE
MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT A Grand
Bahama air charter ser-
vice is offering daily
flights to New Providence
from Freeport.
Regional Air
announced today that it
will be offering three
flights a day to Nassau
beginning today.
This announcement
comes a week after the
charter service formed an
alliance with Sky
Bahamas of New Provi-
dence.
The two companies said
they were feeling the
pinch due to the rising
price of fuel, and decided
to form an alliance in an
effort to cut costs.
A 33-seater SAAB340
aircraft will be used for
the flights.
Regional Air, which is
owned ahd operated by
Captain Steven Mitchell,
has been providing'Tir"'
services from Grand
Bahama for eight years.
Capt Mitchell said that
as a little boy growing in
up High Rock in the late
1960s, he had a burning
passion for airplanes and
dreamed one day of
becoming a pilot and
owning his own airline.
"Those dreams were
realized in March 2000


when I founded Regional
Air as a charter airline
beginning as a single pilot
operator, flying charters
in a five seat piper Aztec
from Freeport Interna-
tional Airport to the
entire Bahamas," he
said.


Wilchcombe largely backs




Rigby on PLP criticism


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
PLP MP for West End and
Bimini Obie Wilchcombe is
largely standing by the harsh
assessment of the opposition
party made by its' former chair-
man Raynard Rigby, saying
that "all critical and objective
assessment" of the party is
absolutely necessary.
Mr Wilchcombe yesterday
agreed with Mr Rigby's evalu-
ation that the PLP is not doing
the best job in opposition,
adding that he would actually
like to have the former chair-
man play a part in helping the
party move forward.
"We have work to do, we
have lots of work to do and I
am hoping that Mr Rigby will
be among those working with
us to make sure that we get
there."
He said that it must be
appreciated that Mr Rigby is a
former chairman of the party
who "does understand the
game of politics (and) what's
going on."
"He like all Bahamians
expects more and (the PLP)
should be giving more as well,"
said Mr Wilchcombe.
Mr Rigby, who stepped
down ag party chairman in Feb-
ruary, told the Bahama Journal
on Tuesday that he does not
think that the PLP have "done
the kind of job that would
cause the majority of people to
see (them) as an effective
opposition".
"I think the Bahamian peo-
ple are still looking for us in
opposition to provide the alter-
native," said the former chair-
man.
While also chastising the cur-
rent government, Mr Rigby
stated that the PLP has not
done enough to put forward


"sound suggestions" as to what
should be done to address the
major problems facing the
country.
,Yesterday Mr Wilchcombe,
who has made clear his desire
to run for deputy leader of the
party, said that he agrees that
there is "obviously . room
for improvement" for the PLP.

Demands
"Certainly we have to
respond to the demands of our
country, the needs of our peo-
ple and we have to present an
agenda that people are going
to buy into and if we say that
we have arrived there no we
haven't yet," said Mr Wilch-
combe.
However, defending the par-
ty's input over the last year,
the former tourism minister
said that although the PLP is
"prepared to assist and make
suggestions" the fact that it has


had to "spend a considerable
amount of time" defending its
practices and actions during its
previous term in government
has made this "very difficult."
He suggested that a reluc-
tance on the part of the gov-
ernment to "reach across the
other side and ask for assis-
tance" has compounded the sit-
uation.
Mr Wilchcombe was also at
variance with Mr Rigby in
terms of his reading of the par-
ty's behaviour when it came to
the Mona Vie issue.
While Mr Rigby said that he
found it "most unfortunate"
that the PLP chose to walk out
of the House of Assembly two
weeks ago after being denied
the right to speak again on the
matter, reasoning that "it had
been in the public domain for
weeks, and there are more crit-
ical issues facing the country
and the Bahamian people", Mr
Wilchcombe claimed that it is a
topic that deserved to be raised


again.
"Yes, the truth of the mat-
ter is that there are many
issues. I am concerned about
the economy.., the high rate
of crime, we are all concerned
about those issues, but you


must appreciate that if a mem-
ber of the House of Assembly
discovers an issue that brings
into question the integrity of a
minister of the government, he
should and must raise it in par-
liament," he said.

He said that during preparation for the appeal,
it was discovered that the original notice of appeal
as well as the judge's ruling during sentencing
were not in the file.
Mr Serville said that they received the com-
plete record late last week.
He initially requested a month for preparation
of the appeal however in the end, July 22 was
agreed upon.
Watson found guilty of the 12-year-old's murder
in September 2006 and was sentenced to death last
year by Senior Supreme Court Justice Anita
Allen.
Eddison was reportedly home with his mother
and sister around 8pm on January 15, 2003, when
he was shot and killed.
Watson was found guilty of firing an automat-
ic rifle at the house.
The victim, who died while watching televi-
sion, was reportedly struck in his head by one of
many bullets that penetrated the wooden house.
Watson was the third person to be sentenced
to death since the Privy Council in London ruled
that mandatory capital punishment in unconsti-
tutional.
Sentencing in all murder cases is now at the
discretion of the sitting Supreme Court judge.

A MAN who received the death sentence last
year for the 2003 murder of a 12-year-old boy
will have to wait a few more months to have his
appeal heard by the appellate court.
Roger Watson, who in September of last year
was sentenced to death for the murder of Eddison
Curtis-Johnson appeared in the Court of Appeal
yesterday, however his attorneys indicated that
they were not prepared to proceed with his appeal
against his conviction and sentence.

Reasons
Attorney Shaka Serville of the law firm Lock-
hart and Munroe told the court that there were
several reasons why they were not ready to pro-
ceed.
Mr Serville pointed out that Watson's previ-
ous attorney and brother Wayne Watson died
earlier this year and as a result, the legal team was
left without the benefit of his advice on the appeal.
Mr Serville also told the court that the original
record of appeal requested by the late attorney
was incomplete up until April 24.

Bad service means bad business


ALL indications are that The Bahamas is in
for a really rough ride economically in the
coming months, especially as the US reces-
sion begins to bite hard.
In Nassau, it is already apparent that things
aren't as good as they were, with businesses of
all kinds reporting disturbing downturns in
takings as Bahamians, and tourists, begin to
tighten their belts.
The Baha Mar debacle was, without doubt,
a demoralising blow, especially as all reports
from the construction sector speak of lay-
offs, work shortages and a noticeable decline
in building activity generally.
At hotels and restaurants, the impact is
obvious even to the casual observer. "Not
many people about" has become the doleful
refrain of those in the -hospitality world.
Times are tough.
Strange, then, that so many Bahamian
workers should still persist with the errors
of the past, when complacency, inefficiency
and outright incompetence could at least be
explained away by a surfeit of paying cus-
tomers.
The poor standard of service here remains
a major issue for all businesses where a smil-
ing face, a semblance of common courtesy
and a real willingness to do things right are
vital for success. For so many shop workers,
office employees and restaurant staff all
having direct contact with the public con-
tinue to lack the basic ingredients for their
kind of Work, severely undermining their
employers' chances of survival in an increas-
ingly difficult business climate.
It is particularly evident in restaurants. In
the personal experience of Tribune staff, ser-
vice standards in Nassau range between indif-
ferent and appalling, with one or two notable
exceptions.
A few months ago, an American tourist
told us that she and her family had felt so
"disrespected" by Bahamian hotel staff that
they had made a decision within their first
couple of days here never to return.
This disrespect, and sometimes almost bla-
tant hostility, is not confined to tourists.
Locals have to suffer it, too, sometimes to
the extent that they steer clear of certain
eateries just so they don't have to confront
surly, indifferent, inefficient or, in some cas-
es, aggressive staff.
It is hard to understand why these atti-
tudes persist and are tolerated in a country

which depends almost entirely on a service
industry.
The whole point of a tourist destination is
to provide a relaxing, enjoyable experience
for people who are prepared to pay good
money to escape the often stressful environ-
ment of home and work in big city environ-
ments.
In visiting The Bahamas, they expect sun-
shine a contrast to grey and cold northern
climes from which they often come and ser-
vice to match from a warm, friendly and
vibrant people.
What they get, very often, are attitudes
they can do without combined with ineffi-
ciency and incompetence. When customers
feel in any way affronted by a dining or shop-
ping experience, they usually vote with their
feet, dealing a direct blow to the business's
bottom line. In today's business climate, bad
service is potentially devastating, and we're
surprised that more employers are not more
alert to it.
Having highlighted the bad, it gives us plea-
sure to note also the good. It is no accident,
for instance, that Cafe Skans on Bay Street is
a very popular restaurant. Apart from offer-
ing good food at reasonable prices, it has a
highly professional staff of waitresses who
make eating there a pleasurable experience.
The same goes, too, for the Moso Thai
restaurant at Crystal Palace on Cable Beach.
The food is excellent, the prices are right,
and the staff make you feel that you are actu-
ally welcome there.
If you eat at Cafe Matisse in downtown
Nassau, you know you are in for a first-class
dining experience because the staff and man-
agement are excellent. They never allow stan-
dards to slip.
With sound management, and a real desire
on the part of staff to do things right, busi-
nesses can withstand the buffeting of chang-
ing fortunes. They are the ones most likely to
prosper, even when times are difficult.
The one 'upside' of a declining economy is
that businesses which fall short are forced to
take stock and raise their game. When extinc-
tion beckons, there is no choice but to get bet-
ter. Broad smiles, common courtesy and
heightened efficiency add nothing to a com-
pany's cost base. But they can make the dif-
ference between success and failure when
customers begin to pick and choose the places
they want to spend their money.


Is the PM too




busy to address




our concerns?


EDITOR, The Tribune.
I FIND it remarkable, as a
trained economist and a lawyer,
that there has been absolutely
no announcement by the FNM
administration as to how it pro-
poses to cushion what is clearly
an emerging recession in the
USA as it relates to The
Bahamas.
It is understandable that the
current Prime Minister is not
an economist, albeit he did
work in a local bank for a num-
ber of years.
The Minister of State, how-
ever, the Hon Zhivargo Laing
(FNM-Marco City) holds him-
self out as an individual who
has had some exposure to eco-
nomic and financial education
(where exactly has never been
revealed in detail).
The Bahamas has rapidly
evolved as a two-tiered society
in all aspects.
There is an almost insur-
mountable gap between the
haves and the have nots. Those
Bahamian families which have
traditionally been loaded with
cash; real estate and other assets
are still large and in charge.
In fact, successive 'black' gov-
ernments have literally ensured
the expansion of the wealth of
the so-called 'white' Bahamians
and their business allies.
The average black person,
however, is still subjected to sit-
ting at the back of the prover-
bial bus from an economic pdint
of view.
He or'she must still eke out a
meager living, such as it might
be, by being hewers of wood
and bearers of water, some 41
years after "the Quiet Revolu-
tion". Collectively, we blacks
own less than 10 per cent of our
natural patrimony.
Many of us, and almost all of
our children, will never be able
to buy the smallest piece of real
estate anywhere in The
Bahamas.
The cost of ordinary living is
literally killing the average
Bahamian, day in and day out.
Utility costs are already off the
chain and there is no relief in


sight with- oil being priced at
over US$100.00 per barrel.
Fuel for ones vehicle, if one
has one, is now in excess of
B$5.00 per gallon.
Mechanical repairs due to
damage inflicted upon our auto-
mobiles due to our poorly main-
tained road systems are beyond
the monthly budget of thou-
sands of Bahamians.
As a result, we must catch a
jitney and hope that the driver
of the day is lucid and in a good
mood.
Food prices are sky rocket-
ing even as you pause to read
this article.
Breadbasket items are just
that.....breadbasket because all
one is able to purchase, in many
cases, is a small basket (plastic
bag) of groceries and maybe a
small loaf of unhealthy white
bread.
Many Bahamians cannot tell
you the last time he or she
would have eaten a good choice
cut steak much less a baked lob-
ster with garlic butter sauce.
I personally know of many
Bahamian families which are
relegated to eating steam
corned beef and white rice, reli-
giously, each and every Sunday
that the Lord tarries.
Mind you, there is absolutely
nothing wrong with a constant
diet of corned beef but should
the working masses not be able
to afford a piece of tough round
steak once per month?
Electrical bills are literally
causing thousands of ordinary
Bahamians to fall out from
stress and the embarrassment
of having no electrical supply.
Telephones are,out of service
for months due to the inability
to pay the requisite bills on
time.
School fees for private
schools are in the upper atmos-
phere yet our children are being
taught by callous and indifferent
teachers. Thousands of children


have had to be removed (or
kicked out) from our private
schools because their parents
are unable to pay B$700.00 and
more per term.
The public schools then
become over crowded and class
room sizes go up like Gussie
Mae and her six sisters. Who
cares?
Rent and mortgage payments
have never been so high and
never before have we seen the
spectacle of so many Bahamians
losing their homes and/or sleep-
ing wherever night catches
them.
Our political leaders are
blind; deaf and dumb when it
comes down to the black,
unwashed masses.
In one year of governance,
there has been no announce-
ment from the Prime Minister
as to the way forward.
In fact, we have hardly seen
Mr Ingraham, except in the
House of Assembly, usually for
a half day on Wednesdays, if
we are lucky.
Yes, he is a busy man but is
he too busy to address those
issues and concerns of ordinary
Bahamians? Is he doing us, col-
lectively, some sort of favours?
The judicial system (or is it
shambles) is badly broken down
and no one has a clue how to
repair it, except to place yet
another leaking band aid on the
gaping putrid wound.
Lawyers abound in the par-
liament but you'd never know
that if I did not tell you so.
Yes, dear readers, we have a
two- tiered system in The
Bahamas.
One for the whites; rich and
famous and another for blacks;
poor people and the inconse-
quential.
Who cares? Certainly not our
political and spiritual leaders.
To God then, Who does not dis-
criminate, in all things, be the
glory.

Dump burning is a health worry


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THIS concerns the burning
of the dump on Russell Island,
which is a major health concern.
All sorts of garbage and sundry
are burned there (old tyres, bat-
teries, etc).
Sometimes the smoke is so
black that it really makes us

are breathing in. Our property
is west of the dump, and we are
in the process of building a new
house.
When the wind is out of the
North East and they set the
dump on fire, we are engulfed
in smoke.
Royal Island golf course is
also in the path and I can't see
anyone spending that kind of
money for property only to
have that kind of black smoke
coming over them.
This has been a major con-
cern of ours for as long as we
have been here (20 years).
Our previous neighbour had
to sell and move into town as
his wife became asthmatic from


the smoke. What is it going to
take to get the dump moved?
During this government's pre-
vious administration, Dr Ronald
Knowles, then Minister of
Health, came and saw the dump
and stated that first of all no
dump should ever be in a
swamp, and also that burning
is against the law.
So why is the dump still
there?
Please could someone in
authority see to it that some-
thing is done soon to relocate
the dump from Russell Island?

Woman cyclist

badly hurt in

hit-and-run

collision
A WOMAN is listed in seri-
ous condition in intensive care
at Princess Margaret Hospital
after a hit-and-run incident in
which she was struck by a truck
while riding a bicycle by The
Caves in West Bay Street.
"The doctors are claiming
that the victim is very ill," said
Thelma Rolle, press liaison offi-
cer at PMH.
Asst Supt Rodney McKenzie
told The Tribune that they
know the vehicle's licence plate
and that "the colour was
obscure because it was dark."
Upon impact, the woman sus-
tained bodily injuries, including
contusions to the head.
According to a police traffic
division official, the woman was
"not talking" when paramedics
arrived, but she was identified
by her family.
Neither police nor hospital
officials were able to release
any details about the victim
except that she is presumed to
be in her late forties or mid
fifties.


ENVIRONMENTALIST RAPS FIRE BRANCH OVER PINEWOOD FOREST BLAZES




Where was the urgency?
9 ,,...y...


* By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE intense fires which have
been blazing through the
pinewood forests in southwest-
ern New Providence since last
week could have been dealt
with if the Fire Branch had
reacted with more urgency, a
local environmentalist, said yes-
terday.
Sam Duncombe, founder of
the environmental protection
group reEarth, said that
although a huge fire burned
through uninhabited bush area
towards Adelaide Road last
week, there were not very many
officers from the Fire Branch
on the scene to battle the blaze.
"Last week, April 23, 24, 25
when the fire was burning ini-
tially on the airport road, often
times there were no fire trucks
on the scene, or one truck. On
Wednesday I called the fire
department and told them there
were no trucks on the road, I
was told they probably went to
refill.
"On Thursday when the blaze
had travelled to Adelaide Road
I called the fire department
again and asked if they know


able to bring the situations
under control.
The Fire Branch told The Tri-
bune that they working dili-
gently around the clock to put
the fires before they spread to
residential areas.
As it concerns the brush fire
close to Adelaide Road, fire-
fighters said they had difficulty
reaching the blaze as the area is
almost completely inaccessible,
especially for large fire trucks.


that the fire was on Adelaide
road, the officer said yes and
hung up the phone. No truck in
sight. And I do mean truck, sin-
gular. Why were other trucks
not dispatched to assist with
putting out the fire," she said.
Ms Duncombe said that this
kind of "sluggish" behaviour by
the Fire Branch is not accept-
able.
The environmentalist further
charged that the branch seem-
ingly only reacts with speed and
manpower when structures are
"burning.
"It was like it's only trees
burning so no one seemed par-
ticularly perturbed. So only
when it is a building do four
trucks and 10 firefighters go to
the scene. The burning of South


Ocean not to mention acres
and acres of trees could have
potentially been averted had
the Fire Branch responded to
the initial fires in the forest with
some kind of energy," she said.
Ms Duncombe yesterday also
noted that the Bahamas' tele-
phone book "has no number.
available in its 60 pages of 'ser-
vices' in the white pages that
lists a phone number for the fire
department includingon its
emergency page." The Fire
Branch is a wing of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force.
Three major fires blazed in
New Providence last week,
threatening hundreds of homes
in the Carmichael Road, Trop-
ical Gardens and the Adelaide
areas before firefighters were

Freeport was the only
Bahamas destination to receive
mention on Trip Advisor's cov-
eted Travellers' Choice Desti-
nation Awards.
The island was in the top 25
Caribbean destinations.
The list of best destinations
for 2008, published yesterday,
was compiled by votes from mil-
lions of Trip Advisor sub-
scribers from around the world
and distributed exclusively to
members.
"Freeport is more laid-back
and quaint than Nassau city's
hustle bustle," a Trip Advisor
member was quoted in the man-
ual. "The beaches and water is
better in Freeport."
Another member described
Freeport as "a town created
with a sole purpose: to give
tourists a vacation filled with
fun, gambling and beach".
"You will be surprised at how
many nightlife hotspots there
are in Freeport!" said a third


member whose review was
described as helpful to other
travellers considering the island.
"Whether you want to have a
laid-back time sipping cocktails
at a bar on the beach or you're
ready to dance all night, you'll
find it in Freeport. The bars
usually have indoor and out-
door areas and serve delicious
tropical drinks to the sounds of
Bahamian music."
The beaches of Grand
Bahama were also praised as
some of the best in the world.
"You'll discover miles and
miles of pristine, quiet beaches
- especially on the southeast-
ern and southwestern sides of
the island," said a subscriber.
Another visitor said that
there is a lot more to.do in
Freeport than just sunbathing
and swimming in "gorgeous
tropical waters".
"If you decide to go out for a
day of fishing, which you can
easily and cheaply do just by


going out to the marinas, you're
almost guaranteed to have at
least a few good catches," said
the visitor. "The Freeport
waters are home to white and
bjue marlin, yellow-fin and
blue-fin tuna, barracuda, and
king fish among others."
The list is posted for a limited
time on the Trip Advisor web-
site. Ranking above the
Bahamas were St Maarten,
Cuba (two locations), St
Thomas, St John's, Barbados,
Bermuda, St Martin, Cayman,
Mexico and Aruba.

Bahamas film




buzz in New York


THE Bahamas Film Com-
mission has been buzzing
about New York City, lining
up more film projects for the
Bahamas.
Bahamas film commission-
er Craig Woods and his team
attended the Tribeca Film
Festival, where they staged a
joint reception with Film
Florida for independent film-
makers.
He said they also met with
film professionals who have
committed to shooting in the
Bahamas "in the near
future".
Mr Woods met with Tony
Gilroy, the writer of the
blockbuster Jason Bourne
trilogy. Mr Gilroy is directing
Duplicity, a film starring
Julia Roberts and Clive
Owen.
The Bahamas film team
was invited to the New York
set of Duplicity. After the
New York scenes are com-
pleted, the film will move to
Nassau for nine days.
A search is already under-
way for extras in the
Bahamas according to the
Film Commission. Following
the Nassau shooting, Duplici-
ty will move to Rome for
final filming.
The team from the Film
Commission also attended
the New York casting for the
film Daybreak. Bahamian
filmmaker Kareem Mortimer
will shoot the movie in Nas-
sau and Eleuthera in July and
August.

Cuban-American

businessman

is kidnapped
* PANAMA CITY,
Panama
A CUBAN-AMERICAN
businessman on the board of
an influential anti-Castro orga-
nization has been kidnapped
in Panama, officials said
Wednesday, according to
Associated Press.
The attorney general's office
said three police officers have
been arrested in connection
with the abduction of Cecilio
Padron, and authorities are
searching for two other sus-
pects.
The officers face charges of
depriving someone of their
freedom, a less serious charge
than kidnapping because no
ransom has been requested,
officials said.
Luis Martinez, a top federal
police investigator, declined to
give details, saying only that
Padron, 66, was kidnapped
April 4. He was last seen in an
exclusive residential section in
Panama City, where he has
lived for several years.
A police spokesman, who
was not authorized to give his
name, said that a Colombian
reportedly was the mastermind
behind the kidnapping. He
would not say more and Mar-
tinez declined to comment on
the nationalities of those
involved.
The director of the judicial
police, Ayu Prado, has said
Padron's relatives told him
they were contacted by his
captors who indicated Padron
is alive.
Padron is a director of the
Cuban American National
Foundation, a politically influ-
ential organization based in
Florida that lobbies for U.S.
pressure on the Cuban gov-
ernment of Fidel and Raul
Castro.
"We are aware of his abduc-
tion and wish that the matter
would be resolved as quickly
as possible," said foundation
spokeswoman Sandy Acosta
Cox.



FPL planning

to convert

plants to gas
* RIVIERA BEACH, Fla.

FLORIDA Power & Light
Co. plans to convert its Cape
Canaveral and Riviera Beach
power plants to burn cleaner
natural gas, reducing emissions
and costs, the company
announced Wednesday, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
"Modernizing these two
power plants to high-efficien-
cy natural gas units will be a
win for FPL customers and
these communities," said FPL
President Armando Olivera.
The two plants currently
burn a mixture of oil and gas
to produce electricity. The con-
versions of both sites to 100
percent natural gas, along with
more modern technology, will
reduce particulate emissions by
88 percent and carbon dioxide
emission rates by 50 percent,
according to FPL.
The company hopes to bring
the new Cape Canaveral site
online in 2013, with the Riviera
Beach upgrade to follow a year
later.
The company said the new
units will be more efficient and
will produce the same amount
of power with 33 percent less
fuel.


Where in the Bahamas is San Salvador?


ON QUIET islands in the cen-
tral Bahamas, a debate of titanic
proportions rages: where is San
Salvador located?
Although it has been widely
accepted that Christopher Colum-
bus first came into contact with
the inhabitants of the western
hemisphere on the island that cur-
rently caries the name of San Sal-
vador, some scholars have chal-
lenged the popular belief. Most
notably, teacher Eris Moncur, has
consistently presented evidence to
support the belief that Cat Island is
the real San Salvador.
Over the years, he has called
attention to an act of parliament
that changed the name of Watlings
Island to San Salvador in the 1920s.
At the same time, the name San
Salvador was removed from the
island of his birth which was then
dubbed Cat Island.
"If you're going to what they
call San Salvador, you're not going
to San Salvador, you're going to
Watlings Island," he told Ministry
of Tourism officials on a product
review mission to Cat Island and
San Salvador.

Passionate

On San Salvador, hospitality
specialist Clifford Fernander is just
as passionate: there can be no dis-
puting the "fact" that the island
where he lives is the true site of
the landfall of Columbus where
Europeans first met native
Bahamians in 1492.
He offers a long list of evidence.
"The prime reason that proves
that this San Salvador is the real
San Salvador is the shape of the
island," Mr Fernander said.
"Columbus states in his diary that
the island that he had discovered
was shaped more like a lima bean,
had many bodies of water and a
large lake in the centre. Other
islands don't have this shape or
lakes," he pointed out.
The evidence for and against
which island is San Salvador is not
by any means conclusive. The two
Smen, who know each other well,
have debated the issue many times
before. They both give tours of
their respective islands to visitors
and share their points of view lib-
erally.
Although they may not reach
an agreement on the San Salvador
issue, they agree that both islands


MINISTER OF Tourism and Aviation Neko Grant listens as Janet Moncur
gives a tour of the Hermitage at Como Hill, Cat Island


are rich in history and culture.
Their tours include the ruins of
plantations, slave quarters and his-
toric churches.
Furthermore, both men cham-
pion efforts for the preservation
and restoration of historic build-
ings and sites. On San Salvador,
Mr Fernander looks forward to
someday seeing sites such as
Watlings Castle, an 18th century
Loyalist plantation, and Fortune
Hill, another plantation estate that
goes back to the 1780s, properly
preserved.
On Cat Island, Mr Moncur has
expressed deep regret over the
manner in which historically sig-
nificant buildings have been
allowed to decay. Buildings such as
the Deveaux Great House were
once majestic. The building, which
was built in 1794, was used until
the 1940s. In the early 1990s, it was
earmarked for restoration as a gift
from the United Nations, Mr Mon-
cur said.
"We don't know where all the
red tape went wrong, but over the
last five years or so, the inside of
the building started falling in on
itself," he said, pointing out rubble
inside the large building.
However, he is excited about
the buildings that are still in good
condition. His tours, which he con-
ducts with his wife, Janet, include
stops at the three churches built
on Cat Island by John Hawes.
Hawes, better known as Father
Jerome, was an Anglican priest
and architect who came to the
Bahamas in 1909 to repair church-
es which were damaged by hurri-
cane, thp Moncurs explain on their


tours. Later, he converted to
Catholicism.
Father Jerome built St Paul's
Anglican Church and St Peter's
Catholic Church in Clarence
Town, Long Island. In Nassau, his
designs include St Augustine's
Monastery. In Cat Island, he built
three catholic churches St Fran-
cis of Assisi, Holy Redeemer and
Our Lady of Zion. He also built
the Hermitage at the top of Como

tomus Schreiner, who was instrumental in having Watlings Island renamed
as San Salvador by parliament.


Hill, the Bahamas' highest point.
After his death in 1956, Father
Jerome was buried at the foot of
the hermitage at Como Hill.
Mrs Moncur pointed out that
people come from as far away as
Australia to see the churches built
by Father Jerome, who also
designed churches in that country.
Other points of historical inter-
est on Cat Island include the Bour-


bon Plantation ruins and the Gold-
en Grove ruins.
Although some people still have
questions about which island

'We are in a state of national emergency'


* By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

THE Bahamas is in a state of
"national emergency" due to
high levels of violence which
have increased to the fear of
crime, former Attorney Gener-
al Alfred Sears said yesterday
in the House of Assembly.
While supporting the Bill for
An Act to Amend the Supreme
Court Act, the MP for Fort
Charlotte said it appeared to
him as if police were withhold-
ing the current murder rate out


Former Attorney General Alfred Sears says violence


has created a sense of fear throughout The Bahamas


of "embarrassment" while the
country becomes more
"unsafe".
Said Mr Sears: "If you are a
poor, poor Bahamian this (is) a
period of what some people will
call a 'national emergency'
because there is no personal
security, there is no sense of
comfort even in one's home.'
"This has nothing to do with
PLP or FNM, now I am talking
about life in the Bahamas today.
I see the police have.even
stopped counting and releasing
the murder count, I think per-
haps out of a sense of embar-
rassment, but whatever the
motive is, the fact is that life for
Bahamians today is more


unsafe, it is more brutish than
certainly when I was growing
up," he said.
"Life today for many of our
people, irrespective of our socio-
economic backgrounds, is very
uncertain, it's very unsafe. Even
the simple act of going into a
restaurant to buy lunch becomes
an occasion of a tragic con-
frontation and meeting with a
bullet," Mr Sears added, refer-
ring to the shooting death of 63-
year-old father-of-six Hubert
Winters in a Subway restaurant
last Saturday.
Mr Sears criticised the gov-
ernment for not providing an
update on the status of the legal
aid system, even though a com-


missioned report on the pro-
posal was presented to the gov-
ernment last year.
"There are poor people in this
country who are brought before
the courts on a daily-basis and
they lack legal representation.
Mr Deputy, we committed to a
commission and spent hundreds
of thousands of dollars of tax-
payers' money for this commis-
sion, this study.
"The report, I understand,
was presented last year and I
am simply asking the govern-
ment, even though you are abus-
ing me in this House, I am ask-
ing you, when will the legal aid
system be established in The
Commonwealth of The


Bahamas so that poor people in
this country would have the ben-
efit of legal representation," he
said.
The Bill was introduced by
Minister of State for Legal
Affairs Desmond Bannister.
Minister for Lands and Local
Government Sidney Collie, PLP
MP for Mical V Alfred Gray,
PLP MP for Fox Hill Fred
Mitchell, PLP MP for Clifton
Kendal Wright, and PLP Piner-
idge MP Kwasi Thompson also
supported the amendment dur-
ing yesterday's session of the
House.
The House is suspended until
Wednesday, May 7, at 10am.

Hardwood Floor
Refinishing


SHardwoods Can Last Forever
Yes, everyone loves a rich, beautiful hardwood floor. And hardwoods truly can last forever
if they are properly maintained. Other great news is that hardwood floors, when properly
maintained, are the easiest of all floor surfaces to keep clean and new looking.

Dust-Free Process
Bridgepoint refinishing process is completely dust free. The process features Bridgepoint
Wood Products. These fine products are designed to safely clean, repair and refinish your
floors to a spectacular appearance. Maintenance treatments every 1-3 years, depending on
traffic levels and type of use, will keep your floors looking great for the lifetime of your
home or business.

Does your floor need to be refinished?
An easy way to tell is if cleaning no longer restores your floors to an acceptable appearance. Besides
the dull appearance, look for scratches, gouges and separation between boards. Repairing such dam-
age is also possible.

Olympic torch
arrives in
Hong Kong
after activists
deported
* HONG KONG
THE Olympic torch returned
to Chinese soil Wednesday
after a turbulent 20-nation tour,
landing in the bustling finan-
cial capital of Hong Kong
where officials deported at least
seven activists before the
flame's arrival, according to
Associated Press.
A marching band and flag-
waving children dressed in red
and white tracksuits greeted the
torch at the airport, where it
arrived from Vietnam. The
flame was then driven to a wel-
come ceremony at a cultural
center.
Five pro-democracy activists
tried to disrupt the ceremony,
but a dozen police blocked the
protesters in a street far from
the venue.
"We demand that the Chi-
nese communist regime lives
up to the promise it made in
2002 to improve human rights
in China," said the protest's
leader, maverick lawmaker
Leung Kwok-hung. He was
heckled by a few onlookers
who accused him of stirring up
trouble.
About 3,000 police planned
to guard the torch Friday dur-
ing its relay through this for-
mer British colony, which
returned to Chinese rule 11
years ago.
The relay is a high-stakes
event for the local government
because it follows a global tour
that was disrupted in some
cities by protests against Bei-
jing's human rights record and
its recent crackdown on
protests in Tibet.
Henry Tang, the city's No. 2
ranking leader, said Hong
Kong, which will host the
Olympic equestrian events, has
a great responsibility to ensure
the "dignified, smooth and
orderly progress" of the flame.
"It has been 44 years since
we last welcomed the Olympic
flame to our city," he said in a
speech.
Even before the torch
arrived, authorities deported at
least seven people whom they
considered a threat to the relay.


Caribbean aims for disaster



risk management strategy


* By LINDSAY
THOMPSON
RISK management
experts met in Nassau to
discuss how to protect the
regional tourism sector from
the worst effects of natural
and man-made disasters.
The one-day workshop at
the Wyndham Nassau
Resort was officially opened
by Director General of
Tourism Vernice Walkine.
Ms Walkine said she was
delighted the workshop was
being held, "given the vul-
nerability of the tourism
sector to natural hazards."
The workshop was spon-
sored by the Caribbean Dis-
aster Emergency Response
Agency (CDERA), with the
support of the Inter-Ameri-
can Development Bank
(IDB), the Caribbean
Tourism Organisation
CTO), the CARICOM
Regional Organisation for
Standards and Quality and
the University of the West
Indies.
The purpose was to seek
ways to implement the
Regional Disaster Risk
Management for Sustain-
able Tourism in the
Caribbean Project by June,
2010.
The project aims to devel-
op a regional disaster risk
management strategy and
plan of action for the
tourism sector. Both nation-
al and regional stakehold-
ers are expected to partici-
pate.
The Bahamas is part of
five pilot countries selected
for the workshop, which
focused on providing an
opportunity for tourism
stakeholders including hotel
operators, travel agencies,
food and service organisa-
tions and local government
authorities, to contribute
and participate in the devel-


The Bahamas hosts

one-day workshop


opment of clear guidelines
for the plan.
"The tourism sector in
our region has over the long
haul proven to be a resilient
industry," Ms Walkine
said.
"It has survived relatively
well, the effects of natural
hazards such as hurricanes,
storms, floods, volcanic
eruptions, health and envi-
ronmental challenges as
well as man-made disasters,
most notably the events of
September 11, 2001."

Control
She pointed out that while
the region cannot prevent a
crisis or a disaster, it could
help to control its effects
and its impact.
"It calls for preparation.
If we are to better manage
emergencies, it is important
that as a group we are
equipped to successfully
-implement a co-ordinated
plan involving all the rele-
vant stakeholders in order
to moderate the crisis," Ms
Walkine said.
"This necessitates a stan-
dardised methodology for
hazard mapping, vulnera-
bility assessment and eco-
nomic valuation for risk
management for the tourism
sector."
She noted that a key fac-
tor in the development of
any disaster risk manage-
ment strategy is the need
for it to be in harmony with
existing national practices.
According to CDERA, the


strategy will do just this,
and will also promote
region-wide sustainable
tourism and foster the trans-
fer of knowledge, skills and
experience on key issues


of disaster risk manage-
ment.
In preparation for the
workshop, CDERA com-
missioned a background
study on the tourism sector
as it relates to disaster risk
management, which was
used to produce a draft out-
line for the strategy.
Participants were divided
into four working groups to
review the draft outline and
make recommendations for
its enhancement.

Considering a





national ID card


* By JOHN ISSA

THERE is little
doubt that a major
contributor to the increase
in crime has been the rise
in the number of illegal
immigrants.
The preservation of
Bahamian traditions and
values is being threatened
by many who do not deeply
share these values.
This column believes in a
country accepting immi-
grants.
However, these immi-
grants should contribute to
the building of the nation
not its destruction.
We should remember that
the father of our first Prime
Minister in independence
came from Jamaica and the
wife of our first Governor
General also came from
Jamaica.
We also have many per-
sons of means who reside in
The Bahamas and make a

substantial contribution to

mans teachers, doctors.
nurses and other immigrants
who contribute a great deal
to the community.
The question which arises
is how can we best control
illegal immigration without
losing the benefits of bene-
ficial immigration?
A national identity card
would greatly assist the
authorities in dealing effec-
tively with those who are in
the country illegally.
The ID card would have a
picture and be issued to all
citizens and legal residents.
It would be useful for
those needing to open a
bank account or transact
other business.
It would also be helpful.

individuals from employing
illegal immigrants and then

pleading ignorance.
Tourists, of course, would
not have one but then if
they overstayed their time
and wanted to work, the
lack of a card would hinder
.this.
I am sure the police
would find it helpful when
they are questioning sus-
pects if they could easily
separate the legals from the
illegals.
The card would also assist
in the management of any
national health and nation-
al insurance scheme.
Anyway, the subject
seems worthy of debate and
there seem to be more
plusses than minuses.

Giant squid

has world's

largest eyes
* WELLINGTON,
New Zealand
MARINE scientists study-
ing the carcass of a rare colos-
sal squid said Wednesday they
had measured its eye at about
11 inches across bigger than
a dinner plate making it the
largest animal eye on Earth,
according to Associated Press.
One of the squid's two eyes,
with a lens as big as an orange,
was found intact as the scien-
tists examined the creature
while it was slowly defrosted
at New Zealand's national
museum, Te Papa Tongarewa.
It has been preserved there
since being caught in the Ross
Sea off Antarctica's northern
coast last year.
"This is the only intact eye
(of a colossal squid) that's ever
been found. It's spectacular,"
said Auckland University of
Technology squid specialist
Kat Bolstad, one of a team of
international scientists brought
in to examine the creature.
"It's the largest known eye
in the animal kingdom," Bol-
stad told The Associated Press.
The squid is the biggest
specimen ever caught of the
rare and mysterious deep-
water species Mesonycho-
teuthis hamiltoni, or colossal
squid. When caught, it mea-
sured 26 feet long and weighed
about 1,000 pounds, but scien-
tists believe the species may
grow as long as 46 feet.
"This is the largest eye ever
recorded in history and stud-
ied," said Swedish Professor
Eric Warrant of the University
of Lund, who specializes in
vision in invertebrates. "It has
a huge lens the size of an
orange and captures an awful
lot of light in the dark depths in
which it hunts."

ing Archbishop Drexel Gomez and Dame
Marguerite Pindling, Mrs Nottage thanked
those who she said had "over the past
month prayed for and with me unceasing-
ly."
She pledged to "bear this awesome
responsibility with all the dignity, impar-

ment to this judicial oath that this high
office demands."
Justice Nottage spoke of how "the rule
of law" is "the foundation of our democ-
ratic polity, and our economic, social and
political structure" and no individual
should be above it.
"In international affairs, civilised nations
recognizee in the rule of law 'certain fun-
damental obligations as binding upon
nations in their dealings with one another'.
Sovereign nations therefore respect this
mutuality in their application of
the laws of each sovereign state," she
said.

tion of our democracy, the last hope of
those who stand innocent until proven
guilty of their charges," she added.

"The names didn't bother me and what-

because I knew that I am not only Ruble,
I am a child of God," she said.
Asked to respond to detractors who

should not hold high judicial office in light
of her past, Mrs Nottage responded that
her background is "filled with all that is
worthwhile and good."
"My past is glorious. Look at it! Look at

Mr Mitchell said: "I support an amendment to
the constitution that would provide for public

"In the case of justice being done, and being

important to the idea of fairness and perception
of fairness."

Yamacraw Beach gets a facelift


HUNDREDS of local vol-
unteers from all walks of life
cleared a huge amount of
trash off of Yamacraw Beach
in an effort organised by the
National Coastal Awareness
Committee.
Sponsored by the Depart-
ment of Marine Resources,
the Bahamas National Trust,
the Department of Environ-
mental Health Services, Dol-
phin Encounters, the Ministry
of Tourism, BREEF, The
Nature. Conservancy, The
Bahamas Hotel Association,
the BEST Commission, and
Nautilus Water, the beach
clean-up was held as part of
National Coastal Awareness
Month.
Governor General Youth
Award Programme partici-
pants from Doris Johnson
High School, Aquinas, C I
Gibson, St John's, R M Bai-
ley, Mt Carmel, C C Sweeting
and the College of the


Several hundred volunteers

contribute to clean area of

21,007 items of trash


Bahamas; members of the
Tara Xavier Hepburn Foun-
dation's TARA Project,
employees of CLICO; The
Rotary Club of East Nassau,
and many volunteers from the
general public and the sur-
rounding community took
part in the event by partici-
pating in a Beach Buddies
programme. The volunteers
teamed-up at Yamacraw
Beach behind Stoke's Cabana
to clear the coast of 21,007
items.
"During Coastal Awareness
Month we are holding a num-
ber of events such as the
beach clean and the harbour
clean-up that took place


recently to educate the pub-
lic about littering," said Jared
Dillet of the Department of
Marine Resources and chair
of the beach clean-up com-
mittee. "We hope that by
shedding light on the amount
of debris we found and edu-
cating the public about the
severe negative effects it caus-
es to our environment, our
health, and our livelihoods, it
will create change."
The Coastal Awareness
Committee of the Bahamas,
is a group of stakeholders
from the private and public
sectors with an interest in pro-
moting the sustainable devel-
opment of the Bahamas.


After hours cleaning-up the
beach, volunteers sorted their
refuse by type and wrote
down their findings on
detailed data cards.
These data cards will be
submitted to the Ocean Con-
servancy by Dolphin Encoun-
ters Project BEACH, to
help them continue to track
common types of litter and try
to prevent these items from
ending up on beaches.
"The results of the four
hour clean-up are tremen-
dous," said Sophia Smith, a
member of the education
department at Dolphin
Encounters. She said they col-
lected 21,007 pieces of trash
including 2,672 plastic bags,
3,285 glass bottles and 2,830
cans.
"Unfortunately, these items
do not break down in our
environment and have a very
long life. It takes more than
250 years for a soda can to


break down and there is no
known time for glass so these
items, literally thousands of
them, would have remained
here for many generations had
we not removed them," she
said.
"We found paper plates,
candy wrappers, many, many
bottles and cans thht people
just left and did not care about
the environment," said
Cameron Foster, a grade-10
student at Nassau Christian
Academy, who participated
with the Governor General
Youth Award Programme.
"You shouldn't ever dump
things at the beach and those
that did should stop."
Attorney General Claire
Hepburn, who along with her
organisation, the TARA Pro-
ject, also participated in the
beach clean-up, and saw the
activity as a tremendous learn-
ing opportunity.
"Having our children par-


ticipate is important it teach-
es them about our environ-
ment and shows them that
they have a real role to play in
protecting it," she said.
Jackie Lightbourne, a mem-
ber of the GGYA Gold
Award Holder Association,
agreed that having the youth
participate is important. "It
gave them a sense of some of
the challenges we face in the
environment and make them
aware that we all must be a
part of the solution."
John Barnett, a fisherman
who took part along with his
son, Ashwan, said he felt
compelled to participate in a
community event for the coast.
"I like to do community
work that is connected to what
I do. As a fisherman, I see the
debris all over the reefs, it is
where I dive and it has to be
stopped. It's killing our marine
life and affecting the fish," he
said.

THE TBEU AMY


THE entire Bahamas is considered a coastal zone. Even trash thrown in the bush will eventually make its
way to the coast by way of wind, rain or animals. Students tackle the surround brush to prevent trash from
getting to the beach.


MAIN


THREATS
The Costal Aware-
ness Committee says
there are five main
threats to coastlines: pol-
lution, invasive species,
climate change, overfish-
ing and habitat destruc-
tion.
In the Bahamas, it
said, perhaps the biggest
problem is trash.
The committee has
hosted, in collaboration
with its strategic partners
both in the public and pri-
vate sectors, a harbour
clean-up, a marine exhi-
bition, a national school
photolessay competition,
and field trips to Dolphin
Encounters on Blue
Lagoon Island and Dive
S Stuart Cove to help stu-
dents learn about pro-
tecting the coasts and
enjoy the marine won-
ders of the Bahamas.
As this is a national ini-
tiative beach clean-ups
and other Coastal
Awareness activities are
planned for the islands of
Abaco, Andros, Bimini,
Eleuthera, Exuma and
San Salvador.
"All beneficiaries of the
tourism industry must
take an interest and
active role in conserving
the resources of this vital
industry, particularly in
growing small island
developing states like the
Bahamas," said commit- -
tee chairman Eariston
McPhee. "We are all in
this together and as our
motto states 'If not us -
Who? If not Now-
When?'"

Govt 'has plans and means'

to keep guns off the streets


FROM page one
by private citizens to buy back guns from the
criminal element to then over to the authorities.
Local attorney and social activist Paul Moss
told The Tribune that he and a group of other
concerned citizens got together last year and sub-
mitted a "gun buy back" proposal to the Ministry
of National Security.
In the submission to the ministry, the group
suggested using their own money to buy back
illegal firearms found in New Providence's com-
munities and to then hand over the weapons to
the appropriate authorities.
Mr Moss, a PLP hopeful for the St Cecelia
constituency, said this group was seeking sup-
port from the Ministry of National Security and
the guarantee that the persons involved in these
transactions would not be prosecuted for buying
or owning illegal firearms.
However, he said the group never received an
answer from the ministry or even an acknowl-
edgment that the proposal had been received.
Mr Turnquest yesterday said that, While he
had heard of the proposal through the media, he
has never read the document.
However, the minister said that this is not an
avenue that his government is considering.
"We do not propose to buy back firearms, we

propose to implement strategies as we've been
discussing with the Commissioner.
"The state has the resources to go out and
implement strategies to rid ourselves (illegal
firearms), whether through our intelligence and
working at the port of entries or through the
networks on the streets," he said.
Mr Moss, however, said that current checks at
ports in New Providence are inadequate.
He proposed that high-tech scanners be
installed at all points of entry to detect the smug-
gling of illegal firearms.
The attorney further suggested better equip-
ment, such as bullet-proof vests, and improved
salaries for police officers.
As criminals become more sophisticated, Mr
Moss said that Bahamian police are increasingly
challenged by a shortage of manpower.
He explained that a pattern has emerged where
criminals now target certain areas when they
know that the police are engaged elsewhere at
other big social or political events, or are short-
staffed because it is a weekend.
In addition to this, Mr Moss said that, although
there are some excellent police officers, there
some "thugs" on the force, as well as many who
consider the profession a strictly nine-to-five job.
A doubling of a police officer's entry salary, the
attorney said, would help the force in attracting
the best and the brightest.

It is alleged that on April 23,

Senate passes US Ambassador

en b pays courtesy call
energy bill in US on onnodore


* TALLAHASSEE, Fla.
AN EXPANSIVE energy bill
headed for the governor's desk is
just the first step in making Flori-
da a national leader in clean ener-
gy, a lawmaker said Wednesday,
according to Associated Press.
The Senate passed the bill on
Wednesday, just a day after the
House passed the same bill unan-
imously. While the legislation rep-
resents a major shift in energy
policy for the state, many law-
makers acknowledged that there
was still more work to do. Sen.
Burt Saunders, R-Naples, one of
the bill's sponsors, said lawmakers
will most likely have to look at
the legislation again next year to.
make sure it's implementation is
going smoothly. Several major
provisions of the bill also require
future approval from lawmakers.
The bill, for example, would
authorize the Department of
Environmental Protection to
make electric utilities pay for the
pollution they create, an effort to
reduce greenhouse gasses. The
department would set pollution
limits for utilities and require the


companies to buy carbon credits
when they exceed those limits,
offsetting those emissions.
The department also would
develop rules that would require
new vehicles sold in Florida to
pollute less. The pollution limits
the department develops for util-
ities and cars would both have to
go back to the Legislature for
approval.
The bill also would require pri-
vate electrical utilities to gener-
ate a certain amount of the pow-
er the sell from renewable sources
like wind and solar power. The
state board that regulates private
utilities would have to create stan-
dards for how much energy comes
from those sources, which law-
makers would have to approve.
Lawmakers would also receive
suggestion for future legislation
from the newly formed Florida
Energy and Climate Commission,
which would be created by the
bill.
The board would take the lead
in setting energy policy for the
state and bring the functions of
existing boards and departments
into a single group.

Rights group: Zimbabwe'

50 army unleashing 'terror'
/ IYN,-/T y)0 ) JOHANNESBURG, South Africa

.A LEADING human rights group accused
Zimbabwe's army Wednesday of working with
ruling party militants to unleash "terror and
S violence" against dissent, according to Associ-
ated Press.
New York-based Human Rights Watch
joined other rights groups and Zimbabwe's
opposition party in linking violence since last
month's presidential vote to the security forces
and so-called "war veterans" groups loyal to
autocratic President Robert Mugabe.
SMugabe's regime has countered that the
opposition groups are responsible for the vio-
lence, even arresting scores of people last week,
1 EI fCE including women and their nursing babies, who
the opposition says had taken shelter from the
violence at its headquarters in Harare, Zim-
Sbabwe's capital. Lawyers for Zimbabwe's
opposition Movement for Democratic Change
said the Harare High Court ordered late Mon-
day that everyone arrested at its headquarters
last week should be freed. On Tuesday, police
O v released the last of those still being held.
--E / _Mugabe has been accused of using violence
and intimidation and plotting fraud to hold
?LZ.f H onto power after March 29 presidential elec-
tions he is believed to have lost.
Results from those elections have yet to be
released, and ruling party officials have said a
runoff would likely be necessary.

S&P: Bahamas growth


1% below


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

ing agency has fore-
cast that the
Bahamas' gross
domestic product
(GDP) growth will drop slightly to 3
per cent in 2008 from last year's 3.1
per cent, a level that is a full percent-
age point below earlier International
Monetary Fund (IMF) projections of
4 per cent. A 1 per cent fall-off in
GDP growth is equivalent to $60 mil-
lion.


projections


* Wall Street rating agency predicts GDP growth in 2008 to be
three per cent, below 2007 and full point off IMF projections
* Reliance on US for 86% of visitors means Bahamas most exposed on tourism front
* Foreign direct investment share of Bahamas GDP to fall from 12% to 11%


In an assessment of the impact the
US and global economic slowdown
will have pn the Bahamas and other
Caribbean nations, Standard & Poor's
(S&P) said this nation's reliance on
the US to provide 86 per cent of visi-
tors meant its tourism industry would


be the hardest hit in the region by
any tourism fall-off.
The Bahamas, S&P added, was
most exposed to any tourism slow-
down given that the industry con-
tributed 51 per cent of GDP and
accounted for 64 per cent of total


employment.
The rating agency added that the
likes of Barbados, Grenada, the
Dominican Republic and Trinidad
were less exposed to any US tourism
slowdown because their visitor bases
were more diversified.


"The tourism sector in the Bahamas
not only contributes the largest share
of the country's economy, compared
with that in its Caribbean peers, but is

Cost of living puts pressure


on wages in industrial talks


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE increased cost of liv-
ing is causing workers to
demand higher salaries, espe-
cially when industrial agree-
ments, are being negotiated,
the Trades Union Congress
(TUC) president telling. Ti
Tribune yesterdayy that the
$150 minimum weeklywage's
purchasing power had likely


been "diminished" to $100.
Obie Ferguson, who is also
an attorney, said Bahamian
trade unions were seeking a
meeting with the minister of
state for finance, Zhivargo
Laing, to see how the impact of
spiralling energy and food
prices on working and poor
Bahamians could be eased.
This was in light of the minis-
ter's comments that the Gov-
ernment was not looking to


increase the $150 minimum
wage for private sector work-
ers at this time.
"The minimum wage is $150
per week for non-government
workers, and when you look
at the cost of living for the
average person, that $150 has
evaporated and dissipated to
maybe $100," Mr Ferguson
told The Tribune.
"The increase*in costs has
really impacted everything. I
think there's got to be other
measures we can look at to
bring temporary relief to work-
ing people.
"I believe the minimum
wage should be between $250-
$275 per week, possibly in the
neighbourhood of $300, but I.
think $250-$275 is more rea-
sonable."
Inflation and the rising cost
of living, driven largely by
energy, food and gasoline price
increases, is placing upward
pressure for wage increases
across the private sector, as
workers seek more money to
maintain living standards and
purchasing power. Otherwise,
they will be faced with a fall
in disposable income.
The pressure for salary
increases is likely to be partic-
ularly acute in industrial agree-
ment negotiations between
trade unions and employers.


A number of contracts are up
for negotiation now, the main
one being the hotel industry
talks between the Bahamas
Hotel, Catering and Allied
Workers Union and the
Bahamas Hotel Employers
Association.
Mr Ferguson said that he
was himself currently negoti-
atlng industrial agreements
between the Bahamas Hotel
Managerial Association
(BHMA), which represents
middle management, and the
Sheraton Cable Beach, Har-
borside and Our Lucaya
resorts.
"It's obviously having an
impact," Mr Ferguson said, in
relation to the cost of living
and industrial negotiations.
"One has to be creative in
coming up with other measures
to compensate for things that
you would have gotten if the
economy was going reasonably
well."
The difficulty for many com-
panies is that if they grant
salary increases not merited by
productivity rises, their costs
greatly increase, undermining
bottom-line profitability. From
a wider perspective, it further
adds to the Bahamas' image as

profits rise

11% in Q1

CABLE Bahamas yesterday
said its 2008 first quarter net
income increased by 10.93 per
cent to $5.54 million, the
improvement driven largely by
a similar rise in revenues fil-
tering dowfi to the bottom line.
The BISX-listed company
indicated that the improve-
ment on the $4.994 million net
income achieved during the
2007 first quarter was pro-
duced from a 10.58 per cent
rise in total revenues, which
grew from $18.126 million to
$20.043 million this year.

SThe will to provide





for your dependents


WITH the enactment of
the Inheritance Act 2002,
Bahamian law not only made
provision for the testamen-
tary disposition and distribu-
tion of a deceased person's
property on intestacy, but
also gave statutory recogni-
tion to the testator's 'moral'
obligation and responsibility
to maintain and make finan-
cial provisions) for his/her
dependents, including his/her
spouse and children.
Some of the relevant sec-
tions of the Act, which relate
to the financial provision for
the maintenance of a surviv-
ing spouse, child, or depen-
dent from the deceased per-
son's estate (on application
to the court), have proven to
be 'controversial' in certain
quarters of Bahamian soci-
ety.
It is the view of some per-
sons (particularly concerned
spouses) that the Act goes
too far in recognizing chil-
dren (legitimate or illegiti-
mate) and dependents. As
these are not children of their
marriage to the deceased.
spouse, these persons believe
they should not (justifiably or
"- unjustifiably), be given any
provision, much less consid-
eration, in relation to the dis-
tribution/intestate succession
of a deceased person's estate.
Again, the need for the
preparation and execution of
a valid will should be empha-
sised, in light of the potential-
ly contentious manner in


Legal
Ease


which a deceased person's
estate may be administered
and.distributed, on intestacy,
due to the provisions of the
Act.
Under section 6 of the Act,
the surviving spouse of a per-
son dying intestate after Feb-
ruary 1, 2002, (the com-
mencement date for the Act),
may have the right to acquire
the matrimonial home in
which the surviving spouse is
residing at the time of the
deceased spouse's death.
They may also be able to
acquire the household chat-
tels (furniture, linens, china,
books and other chattels of
ordinary household use,
domestic animals, and motor
vehicles and accessories not
used for business purposes),
subject to the provisions of
the First Schedule of the Act.
The First Schedule of the
Act allows the surviving
spouse to require that the
personal representatives) of
the deceased person exercise
his powers under the Admin-
istration of Estates Act 2001
to allocate and distribute the
interest in the dwelling-house
(matrimonial home). This
comprises the deceased per-
son's estate, and is where the


surviving spouse resided. The
interest must be distributed
in or towards the satisfaction
of any share of the surviving
spouse in the estate of the
deceased person. Similarly,
the household chattels may
be allocated and distributed
in or towards the satisfaction
of any share of the surviving
spouse.
However, section three of
the First Schedule does out-
line the exceptions to the
right of the surviving spouse,
in relation to the matrimonial
home. This includes, among
other things, the provision
that the right is not exercis-
able after six months from
the date of receipt by the sur-
viving spouse of notification
from the deceased person's
personal representative of
the foregoing rights under
Section 6 of the Act, or after
the taking out of representa-
tion with respect'to the
deceased person's estate,
whichever is the latter. The
right will not be exercisable
in relation to a dwelling-
house that has been given
specifically to a child of the
deceased.
With regard to the alloca-
tion and distribution of the
deceased person's estate (or
appropriation) via applica-
tion to the Supreme Court by
the surviving spouse on
his/her own behalf, or as

trustee for a minor, the court
will make an order for appro-
priation based upon what it
considers to be 'just and equi-
table', having regard to the
Act and all the circumstances
surrounding the administra-
tion and distribution of the
deceased person's estate.
In addition to the right to
reside in the matrimonial
home, the Act also protects
the surviving spouse and chil-
dren of the deceased person
from eviction from the matri-
monial home, even where
such persons may not be enti-
tled to occupy the matrimoni-
al home by virtue of a benefi-
cial interest or any law granti-
ng such a right.
Sections 12 which, along
with section 13, is often
referred to as the 'sweetheart
provision (s)' of the Act),
allows application for reason-
able financial provision to the
court by a surviving spouse of
a deceased person, and a
child of the deceased person
who is either:

(a) Under the age of 18
(b) Betweei the ages of 18
and 23 years receiving 'full-
time instruction' at an educa-
tional establishment, or
undergoing full-time training
for a trade, profession, or
vocation
(c) Mentally or physically
incapacitated and unable to
maintain himself

Application for financial
provisions may also be made
to the court by any person
whdwas not a child of the
deceased person, but was
treated by the deceased per-
son as a child of the family; in
relation to any marriage of
the deceased person to which
he/she was at any time a par-
ty; and who would fall into
the foregoing requirements


of a child of the deceased
person under the Act.
An application for reason-
able financial provision,
which is assessed by the court
taking into consideration all
the circumstances of the par-
ticular case for the receipt of
maintenance by the child, is
normally made on the
grounds that the disposition
of the deceased person's
estate effected by his will -
is not such as to make rea-
sonable financial provision
for the applicant.
However, the court may
refuse to grant an order for
reasonable financial provi-
sion to a surviving spouse
who has been living apart
from the deceased person for
a period of 12 months or
more, under section 13 of the
Act, where it is 'just and rea-
sonable' to refuse such an
order.
In granting an order for
reasonable financial provi-
sion, the court will consider
the following matters, under
section 14 of the Act:

The financial resources
and financial needs that the
applicant has or is likely to
have in the foreseeable
future.
The financial resources
and financial needs that any
other applicant for an order
under section 13 has, or is
likely to have, in the Toresee-
able future.
The financial resources
Sand financial needs that any
beneficiary of the deceased
person's estate has, or is like-
ly to have, in the foreseeable
future.
Any obligations and
responsibilities that the
deceased had towards any
applicant for an order under
section 13, or towards any
beneficiary of the estate of
the deceased.

the net estate of the
deceased.
Any physical or mental
disability of any applicant for
an order'under section 13, or
of any beneficiary of the
estate of the deceased.
Any other matter, includ-
ing the conduct of the appli-
cant or any other person,
which in the circumstances of
the case the court may con-
sider relevant.
The age of the applicant
and the duration of the mar-
riage (with special considera-
tion to whether a decree of
judicial separation was in
force, or whether the surviv-
ing spouse and the deceased
person were living apart for
more than 12 months and the
separation was continuing).
Whether the deceased
person had assumed any
responsibility for the appli-
cant's maintenance, the
extent to and basis upon
which the deceased assumed
that responsibility, and the
length of time that the
deceased discharged that
responsibility.
Whether in assuming and
discharging that responsibili-
ty .the deceased did so know-
ing the applicant was not his
own child.
The liability of any other
person to maintain the appli-
cant.

There is no doubt that even
well-intentioned individuals,
who may have and are dis-
charging their financial and
other obligations to their
children or dependents,
.should ensure that adequate
and suitable provision is
made for such persons in a
manner and to the extent that
they wish. This can be done
by preparing and executing a
valid will, or setting up a suit-
able trust (for distribution of
assets during their lifetime or
within the context of a valid
will).

Resident challenges


re


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
A BAHAMAS resident has
written to the Inspector of
Financial and Corporate Ser-
vices Providers Office saying
he was previously told he did


not require a licence for the
activities it regulated, after the
Compliance Commission
expressed concerns that he did
not hold one or have a Busi-
ness Licence.
In correspondence released
to The Tribune yesterday,


s concerns


Thomas Azzara wrote in a let-
ter to Alexander Roberts of
the Securities Commission,
which has responsibility for
regulating all financial services
providers, that he had been
told on September 5, 2001, by
the former Registrar-General,
Sterling Quant, that he did not
need a licence.
In that letter, Mr Quant had.
told Mr Azzarra: "From the
information supplied, where it
appears to us that you are not
providing financial or corpo-
rate services to clients, you do
not need to be licensed as a
financial and corporate ser-
vices provider."
Stephen Thompson, a Com-
pliance Commission inspector,
had expressed concerns,
though, at last week's meeting
of the group of financial ser-
vices regulators (GFSR) that
Mr Azzara's website,
www.bahamasbahamas.com,
was advertising the provision
of financial and corporate ser-
vices that fell within the
Inspector of Financial and Cor-
porate Services Providers'
purview, even though he did
not have a licence.
In response, Mr Azzarra told
Mr Roberts that he would
arrange a meeting with the
Inspector, and offered to
obtain a licence if he needed
to.
He explained in the letter
that he now acted as an over-
seas incorporation agent for
the Anguilla government, part-
nering with a law firm in that


country, and establishing a
banking relationship in that
nation. He had no businesses
or bank accounts in the
Bahamas. /
Mr Azzarra said he exited
the Bahamian International
Business Company (IB ) mar-
ket in 2000, after 95 p cent of
his business "evapor ted" fol-
lowing the passa e of this
nation's new financial laws.
Prior to the passage of the
upgraded regulatory regime
following the 2090 blacklisting
by the Financil Action Task
Force (FATF), Mr Azzarra
said that in 1999 he sent 140
new IBC clients to Bahamian
attorney Andrew Bowe, but in
2001 the number of new appli-
cants fell to 10, "with renewals
down 90 per cent".
He added that previously, he
sent 325 IBCs to the account-
ing firm Butler & Taylor, and
another 750 were sent for
incorporation at the law office
of Bowe, Henderson & Co. Mr
Azzarra said he was never a
director or officer of any IBCs
that were incorporated.

City Markets




chief departs


KEN Burns has left his post
as chief executive of Bahamas
Supermarkets, owner of the 12
City Markets stores, Tribune
Business can reveal.
Mr Burns is understood to
have informed staff of his
departure last Friday, sources
told this newspaper. The rea-
sons for his departure are
unclear, but his leaving was
confirmed by Bryan Knowles,
the company's chief financial
officer, who referred The Tri-
bune to Azaleta Ishmael-
Newry, the company's chief
marketing officer.
This all happened after The
Tribune rang Mr Burs's direct
line, only to be told by the
woman who answered that he
was no longer with Bahamas
.Supermarkets. A voice mail
message left for Mr Burns on
his cell phone was never
returned.


Mr Burns was something of
a Winn-Dixie stalwart, having
spent 35 years with Bahamas
Supermarkets' previous major-
ity shareholder, after starting
with it the Florida company in
1968 as a part-time stock asso-
ciate.
During his tenure, he also
served as a Miami district man-
ager and a managing director
before replacing former chief
executive Bruce Souder at City
Markets.
Mr Burns was at the helm
of the company during its
"transition year" in 2006, when
Winn- Dixie's majority share-
holding was purchased by BSL
Holdings, a buy out consor-
tium featuring Bahamian insti-
tutional and high-net worth
investors, plus Barbados Ship-
ping and Trading, in a deal
worth over $50 million.

"This more diversified
tourism base should provide
Barbados with more protec-
tion against drops in US visi-
tors than the Bahamas."
The Bahamas was also
exposed to a slowdown in for-
eign direct investment (FDI),
S&P warned, which was likely
to slip from a 12 per cent GDP
share in 2007 to around 11 per


cent in 2008.
"Indications of a foreign
direct investment slowdown
are emerging, particularly
involving projects financed by
Wall Street-related investors,
as was the case in the
Bahamas," S&P added.
"Nevertheless, while mega
projects are unlikely to pro-
ceed in such an uncertain
financial environment, there is
still a strong demand for small-
er projects."

ducive to all parties".
Mr Ferguson said that indus-
trial negotiations, both sides
could "look at other areas in
the organisation that can bring
equal benefits to the negotiat-
ing table".
Among his suggestions were
to enable employees to pur-
chase car gasoline at reduced
rates, and large companies and
corporations subsidising the
cost of employee electricity,
phone, medical and water bills
for a specified period. All this
impacted on workers' salaries

Government: Price controls to remain


* By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter
THE Government will not
abolish price controls, a senior
government official confirmed
yesterday.
Alphaeys Forbes, the deputy
permanent secretary in the
Ministry of Lands and Local
Government, with responsibil-
ity for consumer affairs, said
the Government will continue
to monitor prices, particularly
in light of the skyrocketing
food costs being experienced
in the Bahamas.
However, he added that con-
sumers will have to continue
to endure price fluctuations on
breadbasket item items until
the market settles.


Mr Forbes explained that
bread basket items are based
on a written percentage mark-
up, which in for wholesalers is
13 per cent and retailers, 23
per cent.
He explained that before set-
ting their prices, Bahamian
wholesalers and retailers have
to submit the request to his
ministry, which then goes to
the Attorney General's Office
for vetting.
Mr Forbes acknowledged
concerns raised by a wholesale
merchant that this process is
sometimes lengthy, but pointed
out that by law, it simply had
to be done.
"So we cannot just give a
listing of what people should
be paying for the breadbasket
items, because it really
depends on the price the mer-

Mr Forbes said.
Increases
This explains the price
increases in those items, which
many members of the public
continue to complain about.
Mr Forbes also addressed
concerns raised by some
wholesalers that, given the
escalating food prices, the
mark-up margins should be
increased so that they can
make a profit. He said those
decisions would have to be
made at Cabinet level.
Bahamian supermarkets
have vowed to try to keep
down costs passed to the con-
sumer by using a variety of
Bahamian and US-based sup-


pliers.
Chamber of Commerce
president, Dioniso D'Aguiler,
yesterday encouraged persons
to be very prudent in their
shopping to stretch their mon-
ey.
The head of the United
Nations World Food Pro-
gramme, Josette Sheeran, has
described the soaring food
prices as a silent tsunami",
with hundreds of millions of
people facing famine.
The causes include increas-
ing demand in rapidly growing
economies such as China, the
increasing use of food for bio
fuels and recent meagre har-
vests. There have already been
food riots in a number of
African countries, but also in
Indonesia and closer to home
in Haiti.

The bidding:

Opening lead nine of hearts.

Assume you get to five dubs on
the bidding shown and West leads a
heart. If you are a happy-go-lucky
sort, it does not take you long to fail.
You win the heart lead with the ace
and play a trump. East takes the ace
and returns a heart, which West ruffs.
Sooner or later you lose a diamond to
the ace and go down one.

But if you're by nature a more
cautious soul, you wind up making
the contract As soon as dummy
comes down, you can see that the
only real danger is the possibility that
West's heart lead is a singleton.
There is certainly a reasonable possi-
bility that East's opening heart bid
was based on a six-card suit.
The next step is to ask yourself
whether there is any way of averting
a heart ruff. Once you've gotten this
far, it should not take long to find the
answer. Accordingly, you win the
heart lead with dummy's king, play
the ace of spades and on it discard
the ace of hearts!
The rest of the play is anticlimac-
tic. At trick three, you lead a trump.
East wins with the ace and returns a
heart You ruff, draw trumps, con-
cede a diamond to the ace and finish
with 11 tricks.
The hand is a further illustration
of how a truly careful declarer goes
about the business of nailing down a
contract that might otherwise fail.
"What can defeat me?" he asks-him-
self and he then takes whatever steps
are necessary to overcome the incip-
ient danger.

You're actually questioning whether
you should stay together.

Geetha Gopal v Rustam
Kasimdzhanov, World Cup, Russia
2007.1 have often made the point in
these articles that queen and knight
are an excellent attacking duo in
tandem. The queen's vertical,
horizontal and diagonal power plus
the knight's peculiar hop can be a
lethal partnership if your
opponent's king is poorly guarded
or has weaknesses in the defensive
pawn front. Today's puzzle, won by
a former Fide world champion, is a
good example. Black's attack is
powerful since Kasim (Black, to
move) has not only the h5 queen
and the d3 knight in strong
positions but another rook and
knight as back-up. In response, the
teenage Indian Gopal has tried to
create a defensive bulwark at f2
guarded by several white pieces.
His problem, though, is that the


a c d e f t h
light squares around his g2 king are
weak. Kasim's obvious play is t..Nf3
threatening Qh2+ and Qgl/ht mate,
but against that White has the
defence 2 Rhi. Black found a clever
answer to the puzzle, acrificing for a
mating attack. What was Kasim's
winning move?

MAMA


Holy Father, we give You thanks and praise for your goodness and
faithfulness to us, the family of our deceased Carmetta Cleare.

Mama as she was affectionately called was a gentle matriarch in
our family; a meek and peaceful spirt was she. Mama
demonstrated her love to all through sacrifical giving and service.
She was always encouraging, esteeming others more highly than
herself. She was also a peace advocate, never argumentative and
vain glory and boasting was not her portion; a humble woman
with finesse; she displayed the fruit of long-suffering, gracefully.

This is the fourth year since Mama's departure from us, here on
earth.

Thank You Heavenly Father for the good and great memories we
had with our Mama. Thank you for the nurturing care and love
towards us. always; thank you that she gave us of herself to the
utmost. We thank You for the gift of mother, grandmother and
great grandmother that you have blessed us with. Mama's
extended and adopted family, friends, church and neighborhood
communities and caregivers join in thanks and praise to You
Heavenly Father. As she is with You in Glory our hearts are
comforted and at peace. We know that she is a part of that great
crowd of witnesses that are watching us as we run with patience
the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1). We know that by
your grace we will have a happy reunion with Mama when we
finish our earthly assignments and meet Jesus face to face.

We thank You Most High God that our precious Mama is at rest
and peace in your presence for all eternity. All glory to You, now
and forever. Amen.

Anna and Family.

FACE TO FACE WITH GOD!
Texts: Genesis Chapters 25 through 32, especially 25:22,
-:1 I and 32:24.
S, The expression 'face to face' can be found strewn
throughout the pages of the Holy Writ; in every instance,
there exists either the possibility of a divine blessing,
or certain death.
Confrontation: : Pharaoh said to Moses, "Get out of
my sight! Do not appear before me again! The day you
see my face you will die."
Pastor Ben Bailey
The Prophetic Voice Aaron and Miriam Chided: : "I speak face to face with
P. O. Box N-9518 him, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the Form of the
Nassau, Bahamas Lord. Why then were you not afraid to speak against My
Tpv.inc@coralwave.com Servant Moses?"

The Priestly Blessing: -26: The Lord make His Face shine upon you and be
Gracious to you; the Lord turn His Face toward you and give you Peace."
Fear of Death: : "When Gideon realized that it was the Angel of the Lord, he
exclaimed, Ah, Sovereign Lord! I have seen the Angel of the Lord face to face!"
War and Death: : "Then Amaziah sent messengers to Jehoash son of Jehoahaz,
the son of Jehu, king of Israel, with the challenge: Come, meet me face to face."
Jehoahaz eventually killed stubborn Amaziah! : "You will surely be captured, and
handed over to him. You will see the king of Babylon with your own eyes, and he
will speak with you face to face, and you will go to Babylon."
Kingdom Blessing: : "Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we
shall see (God) face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as
I am fully known."
Isaac and Rebecca: Rebecca was barren, Isaac pleaded with God for his wife, the
Lord granted his request, and Rebecca conceived twins. The children struggled
(face to face) within her; therefore; she asked the Lord, Why am I like this? He
answered, two nations are in your womb, two peoples shall be separated from your
body; one people shall be stronger than the other, and the older shall serve the
younger.
Jacob: Esau: The Birthright: Jacob cooked a red stew; when Esau came in from
the field, he said to Jacob, please feed me, for I am weary. Jacob insisted on obtaining
the birthright as the price of the stew. Esau eventually sold his birthright to Jacob;
Jacob gave him bread and stew of.lentils; he ate, drank, arose, and went his way.
In this fashion Esau despised his birthright.
Jacob:.Esau: The Firstborn Blessing: Jacob obtained the firstborn blessing, which
was attached to the birthright, and Esau hated him because of the blessing with
which his father blessed him. Rebecca was informed of Esau's intentions to kill his
younger brother Jacob. She called Jacob, and informed him of Esau's intention to
kill him; and instructed him to flee to her brother Laban.
Jacob Makes a Vow to God; Jacob made a vow, If God will be with me, keep me,
give me bread to eat, clothing to put on, and I return to my father's house in Peace,
then the Lord shall be my God, and I will give a tenth (tithe) to God of all that God
gives me.
Jacob Puts God in Remembrance: Laban cheated Jacob out of his wages on
numerous occasions; but, God showed him ways to prosper, until he was ready to
return to his homeland. Jacob prayed, God of my father Abraham, and God of my
father Isaac, You said, 'I will surely treat you well, and make your descendants as
the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude. Deliver me, I pray,
from the hand of my brother, Esau.'
Wrestling Face to Face: Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him [Face
to Face] until the breaking of the day: The blessing he received constituted the
changing of his name from Jacob, 'Heel Catcher, Supplanter, or Deceiver,' to Israel,
meaning 'May God Prevail [for Him].' Scholars quote Hosea 12:2-4, "The Lord
also brings a charge against Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways;
according to his deeds He will recompense him. He took his brother by the heel in
the womb, and in his strength he struggled with God. Yes, he struggled with the
Angel and prevailed; he wept, and sought favour from Him."
The Prophet Hosea tells how Jacob wrestled; he wept, and made supplication:
In other words, prayers and tears were his weapons. Spiritual blessings are better
and much more desirable than fine notions which satisfy our curiosity. The Tree
of Life (Salvation) is better than the tree of knowledge (Intellect).
Jacob called the place Peniel: Face of God, Appearance (Presence) of God, and
God's Divine Favour.

The
SNational
Student
Christian
Movement recent-
ly launched
"Operation Blitz"
at Donald Davis
Junior High
School, in con-
junction with the
school's coun-
selling depart-
ment, headed by
Mrs Kim
Rahming, and the
local SCM Club,
headed by Rev
Paula Clarke.


Pastors, youth workers,
church leaders and business
professionals joined forces to
counteract the negative vices
prevalent in the nation's schools
by making themselves available
to touch and reach out to the
country's youth at "Ground
Zero."
One to two speakers from the
60 member group went into
each homeroom with this
hands-on approach to show
young people that they can live
positive lives and make it.
Sharing an anti-crime, anti-drug
and message of positivity, stu-
dents were challenged and
motivated to make quality deci-
sions.
The messages were unified in
that they featured young people
who were able to overcome the
struggles they faced. Other
methods and strategies were
also employed to reach the stu-
dents, including rap, singing,
games and more, to communi-
cate to the students during the
one hour session that was held
from 9:05am 10:05am.
At the end of the day, stu-
dents were amazed and dazzled
by what they saw! And some of
their comments on what the day
did for them were ,heartwarm-


ing and hopeful. Some said it
was very impacting, exciting and
fun, while others expressed an
interest in wanting to be a part
of this exciting event next time.
Greatest above all of the
accomplishments of the day is
that hundreds of students
accepted Jesus Christ as their
Lord and Saviour.
The day was truly a success.
Every student was reached and
allowed to hear a positive mes-
sage, the good news of Jesus
Christ!
Comments from the youth
workers were along the same
lines, "The class was so awe-
some" and "It was good to see
children so receptive" were
common responses and themes.
Other comments were, "I really
enjoyed it", "It was fun to be
with them" and "I really had a
good time"
The local D W Davis SCM
Club will conduct the follow-up
work, along with other SCM
workers and student leaders.
Students were also invited to
attend the SCM Club meeting
at the school. The SCM meet-
ings are expected to assist with
their continued development.

CELEBRATING




THE SISTERS


As the Sisters of Saint Martin Monastery cele-
brate 70 years of existence, from 1937 to
2008, Tribune Religion will feature each of
the current members of the Monastery.


S CECILIA. was born
Pauline (Paula) Margaret Albury on
Harbour Island into a family of
Anglicans.
Except for her older sister, Pauline
was baptized Catholic because her
grandfather had been at odds with the
I priest at St John's Anglican Church at
' the time of her birth.. So it was that, on
Sunday, Pauline would take her
younger siblings to St John's, while she
S proceeded to Mass at the Catholic
S Church.
Her parents were George and
Romalia Bethel Albury. Mrs Albury's
name would become legendary in the
Catholic School system. Although regis-
tered at Harbour Island's public school,
Pauline ran away to St Benedict's
Catholic School, convinced that this was
the place for her.
The young Anglican was powerfully
attracted to the Catholic Church and was
finally baptized into the faith on January
10, 1952 and confirmed on February 2,
1952.
She knew that she wanted to become a
teacher, nurse or a nun to help people.
Her sister's application to Blessed
Martin Convent was not successful
through some-mishap, so Pauline ful-
filled this wish of her sister on September
.15, just months after her confirmation.
At Saint Martin's Convent, Sister
Regina Francis (Eileen Maher, SC) told
Pauline that her religious vocation would
allow her to pursue the other two call-
ings that attracted her.
With entrance to the novitiate on
March 19, 1953, Pauline began to be
called Sister Cecilia. [Like the other
Sisters of the community, she added
'Mary' as a forename during the Marian
Year, but later dropped it because there
was another Mary Cecilia.)
Her first vows were pronounced in
1955 and final vows in 1960. There fol-
lowed her first teaching experiences -
first at Our Lady's (then Holy Name) in
Bimini, and St Bede's in Nassau.
In 1962, Sister Cecilia went to Cold
SSpring, Minnesota, where she experi-
enced something of a culture shock. She
was the only black person among the 30-
plus Sisters there until an American
called Sister Joyce joined them. "
S She was no less surprised when she
asked one of her classes to do a drawing
one day;, Every, child,, except one boy,


represented her as white. Nevertheless,
her sunny nature prevailed and she
adjusted to the community to enjoy four
years there teaching at St Boniface
(1962-1966). She was to make fast
friends among the children and their par-
ents.
Returning to Nassau in 1966, Sister
Cecilia enrolled in the two-year- teacher
education programme at Bahamas
Teachers College, in which she was
endorsed from the University of the
West Indies.
She continued her education at the
College of St Benedict and graduated
with a bachelor's degree. She studied yet
more at Barry College [now Barry
University), Miami Shores.
Further periods of teaching would
include tenures as principal at St Vincent
de Paul, Grand Bahama, St Joseph in
Nassau and Holy Name, Bimini.
Gifted with a beautiful singing voice,
Sister Cecilia performed with the well-
known Renaissance Singers, directed by
the renowned composer/pianist Clement
Bethel. She also became a member of
the Diocesan Chorale under the direc-
tion of noted Bahamian musician
Andrew Curry.
By the time she celebrated her golden
anniversary of religious life in 2005, she
had recorded 'Mary's Songs', a CD of
her singing all told, an active and fruit-
ful life for someone who had suffered
several bouts of serious illness.
When she retired from teaching, Sister
Cecilia became administrator of St
Joseph Day Care Centre for the aged, a
role for which she prepared at St
Scholastica Home in Minnesota and
through a gerontology workshop in
South Dakota.
During an interview in 2007, Sister
Cecilia thanked God for her vocation
and all the people who she met and had
helped her in the course of her religious
life. Her humour asserted itself when she
pointed out that, although religious
women were no longer obliged to wear
the veil, she continued to do so. She
noted, with humour, that the veil was a
covering for all the sins she had commit-
ted and would commit in life.

A DAUGHTER was
born on September
14r, 1946 on the
island of San Salvador
to Joseph Richard
Albury and his wife
Mabel Gertrude (nee
Bethel), and baptized
Thelma Caroline Albury.
The home was a gracious,
close-knit and caring one. The
father's income from his work
as the island's wireless opera-
tor provided for them, while
the mother cared for the chil-
dren and home. As her father
was Catechist of the church at
Cockburn Town, Thelma
grew up in a home steeped in
Catholic faith. In fact, Joseph
Albury would give 45 years of
service to the Church.
Thelma was inspired in her
vocation by the story of Saint
Bernadette. She pursued an
early vocation, but her parish
priest Father Nicholas
Kremer, OSB, did not support
it. He was keen that the twin
girls of her family, Lilymae
and Wilamae, should be the


THE ONLY DAUGH-
TER OF SAMUEL
AND SARAH
COAKLEY, Sister Janis
was born in Calabash Bay,
Andros, preceded by three
brothers and followed by
another four. In her estima-
tion, her birthplace was the
"happy settlement" where
she lived in a loving home
and was surrounded on all
sides by the homes of grand-
parents, uncles, aunts and
cousins, with whom she
enjoyed the same warm and
enfolding relationship.
Janis, like other Catholics
of Calabash Bay who lived
there before the second half
of the 20th century, was priv-
ileged to interact with the
pioneers of the Bahamas
Catholic community who
founded the parishes and
built many of the early
church structures with their
own hands.
She was baptized by
Father Gabriel Roerig, OSB,
who came to the Bahamas
on June 4, 1894, with Father
Melchior Bahner, OSB, just
three years after the first
permanent Catholic mission
Was established in this coun-
try in 1891 by Father
Chrysostom Schreiner, OSB.
Roerig and Bahner were
the first priests posted here
to assist Schreiner full time.
Roerig built the first church-


ones to join Blessed Martin
Convent. (It should be noted
that before he left the
Bahamas, Father Nicholas
blessed the one he had reject-
ed.)
As divine providence would
have it, Thelma eventually
achieved her goal. She
entered the novitiate at Saint
Benedict's Convent,
Minnesota in 1962 and made
her first profession two years
later, with her father and
uncle to support her..
Adjustment to cultural dif-
ferences made her sojourn in
Minnesota sometimes trying.
Sister Mary Josephine, as
Thelma came to be known,
got the sense that the
American Sisters expected
the Sisters of Saint Martin to
be less sophisticated than they
actually were. She disliked
being an object of their ongo-
ing curiosity. As time went
on, with the aid of forgiveness
and humility, mutual under-
standing grew.
Some years after she
returned to Nassau in 1965,
Sister Mary Josephine was
appointed director of


es on Andros and spent the
rest of his life there until his
death in 1950. According to
Sister Janis, Father Gabriel
cared for and looked after
the people of Andros to the
best of his ability.
Even the nurturing of
Sister Janis' vocation is
steeped in Bahamian
Catholic history. Although
she had no contact with reli-
gious women in her forma-
tive years, her mother had
actually wanted to become a
nun. Mrs Coakley told her
daughter stories of her inter-
action with religious men
and women. She had been in
class with Anna Harvey, who
became Sister Rosella. They
were instructed by Father
Arnold Mondloch, OSB, one
of the stalwarts among the
early Benedictine mission-
ers. She met the first reli-
gious women when three
Sisters of Saint Martin came
to Andros and stayed in her
family home. Her cousins
Charles and Telzena
Coakley were two early
Bahamian vocations.
Charles, ordained on June
20, 1957, was the first
Bahamian-born priest of the
Diocese of Nassau.
The young Janis stayed in
school in Andros as a moni-
tor until she was 12. This
was the only route to educa-
tion beyond the basics for
the majority of clever young
Bahamians of that day. She


Religious Education. In this
capacity she travelled to
parishes throughout the
islands, working with teachers
and administrators and visit-
ing homes. She noted in 2007
that she became all the richer
for these experiences.
Sister Mary Josephine also
worked with Mary Ferguson
in marriage preparations, a
mission which included teach-
ing couples about the sacra-
ments and leading them in a
period of reflection to explore
their own identify and their
relationship.
Her father had asked when
she left home that she not for.-
get San Salvador and she
never did. She was able to
demonstrate this when she
asked to go to that island as
parish administrator for Holy
Saviour and Holy Cross
Parishes. She was over-
whelmed by the love and sup-
port of the people of the
island. She functioned in that
post from 2001 to 2005.
Like other Sisters, Mary
Josephine was given opportu-
nities to enhance the basic
education she had received in


next attended Aquinas
College.
At the age of 15, she
spoke of her wish to enter
the Convent, but her father
refused initially saying that
his daughter did not yet
know her own mind. Janis
eventually won the day and
entered the Saint Martin
community in 1964. Her for-
mation took place at Saint
Benedict's Convent in
Minnesota and she remem-
bered how astonished and
frightened she was at the
sight of over 900 nuns in
habits.
Sister Janis would spend
five years in the Minnesota
Convent. During those
years, she completed her
secondary education at St
Benedict's High School and
emerged with her diploma at
the end of two years. She
went on to the College of St
Benedict to do a programme
in practical arts and the're-
after had the opportunity to
teach religious education in
St Cloud Diocese.
She made her first vows in
1968 with her proud parents
in attendance. Her entrance
into the novitiate was wit-
nessed by her two brothers.
She returned home in 1971
and pronounced final vows
in Nassau in 1973.
Her primary work was in
teaching religious education
and lending support to the
parishes. She provided assis-


childhood. She completed a
bachelor's degree at the
College of St Benedict and a
master's degree in religious
education and administration
with a concentration in family
ministry at Fordham
University.
When she began religious
life, Sister Mary Josephine
thought only in terms of giv-
ing up things and not so much
of what she might receive.
She learned that it was a life
in which the giver received as
much as she gave. As the
community was preparing to
celebrate its 70th anniversary,
she spoke of her continuing
joy in her vocation, her great
love for her community and
the strength she derived from
them when confronting her
health problems and other
challenges.

Francis/Joseph School where
she spent the next 17 years.
She retired in June 2007.
During an interview in the
same year, Sister Janis spoke
of the religious life as her
calling and a joy. The Sisters
of Saint Martin were a
beloved family, but the life
had not been without its ups
and downs.
Although she had been
allowed to go back and forth
to nurse her mother during
Mrs Coakley's last illness,
Sister Janis had often wished
she had been able to be with
her beloved parent full time.
However, she pointed out
that she "put her whole life
before the Lord and depend-
ed on his leading."

Appreciating


beauty


* By REVEREND ANGELA
BOSFIELD PALACIOUS


WHEN I had a hibiscus planted, each
day I woke to the lovely sight of a
bud that had opened during the night. Not only
did it remind me of God's gift of countless bless-
ings all around just waiting for me to notice
them, but it also spoke to me of the need to be
"blooming where I am planted," and to offer
myself to God once more at the start of each
day.
When I speak to groups about spiritual for-
mation, the image of the flower (like that of the
metamorphosis of a butterfly) is most helpful to
describe the process of spiritual development.
The concept of the "blighted rose" is one
which brings to mind a life handicapped by dys-
functional patterns at home or life choices
which severely reduce a person's ability to enjoy
the health and wholeness intended by God for
each one of us. The life-changing promise of
transformation afforded by salvation recreate?
even a blighted rose into a person of great inner
beauty.
Spiritual
Our little ones need to be helped to appreci-
ate the things of life that have such value to the
spirit, and many deep spiritual lessons lie hid-
den beneath the surface of much that seems
ordinary. There is so much that money cannot
buy, and no words may.fully express. "A thing
of beauty is indeed a joy forever."
More importantly, in times of great personal,
national, and international distress, it is impera-
tive that we invite into our lives every accessible
opportunity to celebrate life. Now more than
ever, we cannot wait for others to make us
happy, but must seek joy for ourselves. This
translates into not waiting for flowers to be sent
to us, but to provide our own through our ini-
tiative.
Small things like candles, soft music, tasteful
d6cor and floral arrangements add gentle
touches to any home. Where flowers are freely
available, let us bring these and other articles of
nature into our dwelling spaces. The value of
beauty need not be defined by its price on the
market. A hibiscus is not an orchid or a rose,
but the intricacy of its loveliness is not dimin-
ished, in my mind, by its availability without
cost. God has been so good to us; I want to
respond with far more gratitude than I have
previously, and be inspired by such grace.
*How do you invite beauty into your life? If
you were to decorate your home (regularly)
what would you select to celebrate God's good-
ness and beauty in your life? How can you add
a touch of loveliness to the lives of those in need
of such a lift?
Let this be your time to be more intent upon
celebrating the beauty of the earth, and to
reveal God's grace in the beauty of your Christ-
like character.
A meditation from Rev Palacious' most
recent published work, "Sharing Our Stories of
Encounmtrs with God".


Distracted watchmen!



Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house

of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them

warning from me. Ezekiel 3:17


HE question
that's being asked
by many through-
out the length and
breadth of the
Bahamas today is this, 'Has the
church failed or is the church fail-
ing to positively impact our socie-
ty?'
In. answering this question
many religious leaders are
responding with a very weak
"No" as they try to explain what
they or some other local ministry
in their community is doing:
From a natural perspective, just
about every community in the
more developed islands like New
Providence, Grand Bahama and
Abaco has at least two or three
churches, and their impact and
affect within these communities
are of little or no value. This is
the truth and a fact that offends
religious leaders when they are
confronted with the same.
Most of these religious institu-
tions focus on a few within their
four walls and then primarily
upon the needs and welfare of the
religious leader. The prostitution
of the gospel has given birth to
the proliferation of ineffective
religious churches in various
communities.
The undeniable answer to the
question of whether or not the
church is failing is yes. The reli-
gious, organised church is failing
miserably at positively impacting
our society. There are two types
of churches:
1) Man's organised, religious,
divided church from which we
have hundreds of different
denominations and faiths.
2) The true church of Yeshuwa
Messiah: And I say also unto
thee, that thou art Peter, and upon
this rock I will build my church;
and the gates of hell shall not pre-
vail against it. Matthew 16:18

The religious church is one that
talks about Yeshuwa Messiah,
but promotes and advances its
leaders agenda. The true church
of Yeshuwa Messiah is a set of
people/disciples whom He


ordained and placed as watchmen
unto a house of a nation.

Distracted

I do believe that there are spir-
itual watchmen in this country,
but they are being distracted by
the pressures of religion and the
pursuit of money. The moral, eco-
nomic and spiritual decay that
we're experiencing as a nation is
due to the distraction and drunk-
enness of the watchmen of this
nation.

O ur Lord and Saviour
Yeshuwa. Messiah did
not give His power (exousia, ex-
oo-see'-ah) to the political lead-
ers and the government as it
relates to the social and spiritual
well being of the people.
Watch this! And when he had
called unto him his twelve disci-
ples, he gave them power against
unclean spirits, to cast them out,
and to heal all manner of sickness
and all manner of disease.
Matthew 10:1
Behold, I give unto you power
to tread on serpents and scorpi-
ons, and over all the power of the
enemy: and nothing shall by any
means hurt you. Luke 10:19
What we're seeing in our coun-
try today is a complete reverse of
these two verses. Today, it's the
enemy's power that is prevailing
throughout the length and
breadth of the Bahamas, while
the religious leaders defend their
position.
The supposed watchmen of this
nation are busy finding ways to
make money and they are effec-
tively using their religious institu-
lions and positions to do so, while
the enemy mercilessly wreaks
havoc throughout our communi-
ties.
The politicians and the reli-
gious leaders have a quick under-


standing of the fact that
Bahamians, .by and large, don't
and won't feel good if they're not
being lied too. This is why every
five years no matter the character
of the political candidate, as long
as they are good liars who are
filled with promises, their
chances of being elected are very
great. The same thing applies to
the church; as long as the reli-
gious leaders are good liars the
people will flock to hear what
they have to say.

f it was possible even God's
very elect would be
deceived. I often hear emotional,
screaming, empty vessels
prophet-lying to their followers
saying, 'God said he's going to do
this or that for a few of you in
here today', when the truth of the
matter is that God has not spoken
a word to them. If He did, He
would tell them about lying in His
name, and to tell the people to
repent from their sin-filled life.
The religious church-folks
today can't handle the truth,
that's why they are comfortable
gathering at their religious insti-
tutions where their man-of-God
entertains and satisfies their emo-
tions.
The Father has risen up a new
breed of watchmen that will not
be intimidated by the forces of
religion or otherwise, but will
boldly cry aloud and spare not.
These watchmen you will not eas-
ily find at your religious confer-
ences, seminars, etc, because of
their relationship with the Father
and their true love for His people.
These are the fearless, uncom-
promising, watchmen.

PORT HOWE CHURCH REDEDICATED BY ARCHBISHOP DREXEL GOMEZ


St Mark's




receives




massive




'makeover'


THE people of St Mark's Church in
Port Howe, and the extended commu-
nity of Cat Island were elated on
Sunday past to see their beautiful,
palatial edifice rededicated by
Archbishop Drexel Gomez and
Coadjutor Bishop Laish Boyd.
"The renovation of St Mark's is a gift
from the people of Christ the King in
New Providence," said former priest in
charge of Cat Island Reverend Hugh
Bartlett.
The brainchild of Archdeacon I
Ranfurly Brown, former rector of
Christ the King and a direct descen-
dent of the Bluff, Cat Island, this is the
first project of its kind in the southern
islands of the Bahamas archipelago
chain.
The church of St Mark's is a replica
of Christ the King in New Providence.
The work was extensive, progressive
and time consuming. The once
asbestos-filled roof was removed and a
belfry was also erected and installed.
The wooden structured windows were
replaced with state of the art stained
glass windows donated by ministries
within Christ the King: The Anglican


Church Woman, the Usher Board and
the Singing Choir.
The parish church of Christ the King
is saturated with direct descendants of
Cat Island who now reside in Nassau.
Mrs Dorothy Bowe and family donat-
ed the seven foot picturesque stained
glass window with the image of St
Mark the Evangelist which adorns the
sanctuary in memory of her husband,
Charles David Bowe.
Never in the history books of the
Anglican Diocese of the Bahamas has
a Herculean effort been undertaken by
a single parish church partnering in


ministry and mission. Father Chester
Burton; Father Edward Seymour, asso-
ciate priest; the vestry and people of St
Saviour's Parish saluted the vision and
the tenacity of Archdeacon Brown,
who was unable to attend due to a
funeral at St Agnes where he is now
posted.
Archbishop Gomez and coadjutor
Boyd were enthused with the throngs
of parishioners and well wishers who
greeted them for this auspicious'occa-
sion.
The rank and file of the Anglican
church learned that the next major


project would be St Mary's the Virgin
in Old Bight which was given to the
slaves after emancipation.
In his closing remarks, Father
Burton thanked Cat Island born
Charles Williams, treasurer of Christ
the King, for his commitment, and for
ensuring that the work started by his
church would be completed in short
order. Honourable mention was also
made of Catechist Cedric Wilson and
Steven Bonaby, both building contrac-
tors, and Hoyte Williams and Sean
Bethel, masons, who ensured the
dream materialized to this point.

event could not have occurred without


the consent and support of the principal,
administration and the counselling
department of D W Davis.
The Student Christian Movement
(SCM) is an interdenominational, mul-
tifaceted, holistic, non-profit youth
organisation that is dedicated to the
overall development of young people in
the primary, secondary and tertiary
institutions.
It provides an avenue for Christian
students to express their love for God
and interrelate with their peers in
Christian experience in a weekly, on-
campus meeting.


Through prayer, bible study, .dance
ministry, evangelism, praise and wor-
ship and choir ministry, students are
able to express their love and apprecia-
tion to God in a weekly 'on-campus'
meeting.
The SCM, under the motto "No
Limit Soldiers for Christ", seeks to raise
up a spiritual army of teen soldiers who
are disciplined, bold, honest, loyal and
God-sufficient; students who are well
equipped to take on the challenges of
teen life and to be exceptional students
and valuable citizens of the Bahamas.
