Darold Miller claims there is a
conspiracy to defame his character


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
POPULAIR media personali-
ty )arold Miller claimed yes-
terday that politics, money and
lesbianism were at the root of a
conspiracy to defame his char-
acter and silence him.
Mr Miller. who is accused of
importuning a female (il:.MS
105.111 employee for sexual
favours between February 2 and
March 22. 211"'', opted to give
an unsworn statement at his
sexual harassment trial yester-
day.
"What transpired in this court
in relation to the frivolous
action against lcm amounts to a
travesty of justice and also
amounts to a miscarriage of jus-

"I have done nothing wrong,
absolutely nothing. I am a vic-

terrorism

Is rejected

MR BELL'S suggestion
that Jamaica was the scene
of terrorism was rejected
last night by the country's
honorary consul in Nassau.
Mr Patrick Hanlan said
while Jamaica was suffer-
ing, like many other coun-
tries, from crime, he said
there was no evidence of
terrorism.
"I am not aware that
Jamaica is suffering from
terrorism. They are bat-
tling crime, but not to the
point where it can be called
that," he added.

A 28-YEAR-OLD Lewis

ing her was arraigned in

ENGLERSTON MI' (;lcnys
Hanna-Martin has criticisidl
government lorl not dt loilng mole
for straw vendors ill the new
budget during het budget con-
tribution.
"Mr Speaker, onl the questions
of the redevelopment of Iilay
Street I just want to continent
here on the city of Nassau revi-
talization that it would have
been good if we would have had
real clear plans about what will
happen for the straw market.
That's Bay Street too. And
that's your average entrepre-
neur those women andl mIen
who work in that stiaw inma-
ket," said Mrs H1anna-MNiltin
yesterday in the lHouse ol
Assembly.
The government has iclnewedl
the proposal front its last ltel i
in office for vendors to )movec
to the Prince (;eoige Dock.
Some $2 million is dedhiclted to
the authentic ctaft market at
the Prince (eorge site in the
current budget.
However, there is no plan this
fiscal year for the reconstruc-
tion of the straw market on the
old site. Vendors ha\e been
away from here since Septelm-
ber 2001. when the market
burned down.
Instead, government haas
pledged to upgrade the tent
vendors work while transform-
ing the old site into it park.
"My Ministry has put tgeth-
er a team of urban planners and
architects from mv ministry to
the design and de\lop ian

sau," said Public Works Minis-
ter Earl Deveaux during his

MICAL MP Alfred Gray has
accused the FNM of not achiev-
ing any major accomplishments
in 13 months of government.
He also asked what has hap-
pened to capital projects sched-
uled for his constituency, which
have not progressed during that
time.
"And so Mr Speaker, 13
months ago this government
came to office and 13 months
later they have not done a single
thing to which Bahamians could
point and say this is what they
have done for us (over) those 13
months," said Mr Gray in the
House of Assembly yesterday
during his contribution to the
budget debate.
"Now they have some hopes
in ahis budget for the coming
year but in retrospect they have
done nothing. And I challenge
them over there to show us what
they have done to assist and help
the Bahamian poor people over
the last 13 months very little or
nothing. And if they say they did
something, if things are so good,
why do people feel so bad?"
asked Mr Gray.
The MICAL MP also focused
on the lack of cable TV services
in the southern islands. He said
that the government has broken
its promise to provide these ser-
vices within 90 days of coming to
office.
"They said that they will have
cables in that constituency with-
in 90 days, its almost 900 days. I
ain't even hear nothing about
no cable. I hope it will come. I
want it to come. But I challenge
them to do what they say," he
said, arguing that his con-
stituents deserve the same
opportunities as other Bahami-
ans.
The roads in Acklins were in a
deplorable state before the FNM
came to power. However, Mr
Gray charged that the new gov-
ernment unilaterally cancelled
the contracts left for the roads
by the PLP government and
have not paid the contractors
involved. Mr (ray is the lawyer
for the company involved.


Fetlzr.hniic

Pes Cmm


"After 13 months the had
road in Acklins hate now
become impossible." he said.
challenging government mem-
bers to go and take a ride on
these roads.
The issue of the Salina Point
school, which had its multi-mil-
lion dollar contract cancelled b1>
the FNM, was also raised by Mr
Gray.
The government, he said.
promised the people of Acklins
that they would build something
a little smaller "and the, have
not done anything in 13 months
to bring relief to those people."
"They fooled them again."
said Mr Gray. "Now I don't real-
ly take kindly to these things
because we had signed a $3 mil-
lion contract for the school in
Salina Point. They said it was
too much. They said it was too
big, but my God, give them
something."

Iral minutes altet arriving,
Brensil Rolle, thie parliament
tary secetl;ny in the Ilousing
ministry, which has responsibil-
ity for I Jrban Renewal, showed
up to brief heri on what was
going o(ni iln the area.
In response to Mr Rolle's
ail)l)ara;nce at the meeting, she
said "it's just very disappoint-
ing that the member for (jar-
den Hills did not trust me to be
appropriately briefed of what
was happening with the stake-
holders in our community and
felt he had to sit through that
meeting."
The lnigllstlon MPl also said
that sihe is watching the staffing

her coinstitluecy. She pilloised
to laise this issue otil allnotlhl
owcasionl, including whly the

"It's an absolute shame that
thlls process has been so
debased and so politicized that
ain energy hialt was so wonderful

ed, intlel uplted and in fact
cciased as a result of tile political
interventions. In my view, from
what I see, it is close a jhuam

said.

MP criticises budget for not


Gray accuses government of not


acieving majer accomplishments

I








PAGEO 4, THURSDAY JUNE 12 2008 THE


FORMER POLICE prosecutor Keith
Bell was so right when he told a public
forum Monday night that there are people
in the Bahamas who do not have their pri-
orities right.
He was referring in disgust to neigh-
bours of a convicted drug dealer who
objected to the dealer being jailed for 35
years in the US for his heinous misdeeds.
According to Mr Bell, in an interview over
ZNS. they talked of him as a god, and
praised him for being a second Robin
Hood, a pillar of their community.
They completely ignored the damage he
had done to so many in this country whose
lives have been destroyed by the cocaine he
and his minions had peddled.
But even more depressing were callers
into a talk show yesterday morning, who
had the audacity to usurp God's justice
and declare that persons who "live in sin",
such as homosexuals, should expect to
come to a bitter end.
Another holier-than- thou soul had the
audacity to say: "I am for human rights
until you conflict your so-called rights with
the laws of God."
..- In. other words the recent murders _of
four homosexual men were justified.
According to the callers to this radio show
these men had lived in sin, and were justly
punished.
Only God knows the whole story of any-
one's life and only he can judge who has
sinned against his laws there might be
mitigating circumstances in an individual's
life that only God knows of and on which
only he can pass judgment. Remember,
according to the Bible, Jesus even took a
thief to Paradise with him.
If individuals are going to bypass a court
of law, where flawed human justice is hand-
ed down, and condone murder because
they claim a man or woman is sinning
against God's law, then we had all better
take for the hills none of us is safe with
such a neighbour.
One would think that these people would
pay more attention to their own frail
lifestyles to ensure that they can present a
clean slate when they approach the Pearly
Gates, rather than trying to second guess
God's judgment on their neighbours.
These judgmental souls are the very peo-

ple in whose faces the door to salvation
will be slammed. Their sin.' Arrogance.
Setting themselves up its petty gods in judg-
ment on who should live and who should
die. One can only forgive their ignorance.
They must remember that just as God
created them, he also created the homo-
sexual. He loves them both with all their
faults, and only he can say which of them is
more worthy of his paradise.
* *
Mr Paul Thompson, a former assistant
commissioner of police, now retired, has
remained close to the force.
He too is very concerned about the state
of the country and its deep slide into the
world of crime.
He is concerned that there are too many
unregistered persons living in our country.
"This poses a massive cscurity threat." he
says. "We have no names. no fingerprints
and no photographs of these persons."
He is also concerned about reports that
he has had from "two reliable sources" of
men seen in military fatigues training in
the Cowpen Road area. This unconfirmed
report should be checked.
ie also claims that trail hikes are being
smuggled into Nassau.
"The bikes cost about S,.tIKMl. he ;said.
"Many of the youths riding the bikes a.re
unemployed. They move drugs and guns
around town."
He claimed that recently a few of them
were involved in changing counterfeit mon-
ey.
"The bikes." he says, "are unlicensed.
and unregistered because the owners do
not have customs papers to sh1ow tha; the\
arrived legally." Ile claimed that many of
them are the persons "who ride danger-
ously on our streets, flagrantly breaking
the law."
Police officers, he said, do no have to)
chase these bikes. However. he suggested
that when trail bikes are parked. the offi-
cers could exercise their power of arrest on
suspicion of unlawful possession."
The police indeed have their hands full.
If crime is to be controlled the police need
the full cooperation of the public. And the
judiciary has to be strengthened so that
accused persons can be taken off the streets
and processed within a reasonable time.

Consumers, beware

these false claims
Termite Fraud
EDITOR. The Tribune.
I AM notingg this letter to warn honest, hard working Bahamians
and residents not to he fooled, like I was. by an exterminating
company claiming to get rid of dry-wood termites from your home
or iapartmlcnt. without tenting.
I reported them to the Consumer Protection Commission over six
months ago and they have not done anything about it.
As far as my\ case is concerned, this is a non-working Commission.
ihecse so-called exterminators seem to resurface, along with the
termites, around this time of the year: the rainy season.
So beware consumers! Do not be fooled by these false claims. All
the\ \will do is. take your money.

tice system is "on the brink of
collapse" and that Nassau could
soon face kidnapping and ter-
rorism as the crime situation
deteriorates sent alarm bells
ringing throughout Nassau.
It was the first time a former
senior police officer had outlined
the full horror of the city's rising
crime rate and the court system's
inability to cope with a mounting
backlog of cases.
Mr 'Thompson, who has
repeatedly urged more efficient
enforcement measures, said
many trailbikers were in blatant
breach of the law on several
fronts, riding without helmets,
insurance, registration plates or
licences on machines that were
almost invariably smuggled into
the country.
He said there was no way that
many youngsters riding the bikes
could have raised the $8,(XXJ or
so purchase price.
"These bikes are being smug-
gled in and these youngsters get
hold of them without paying cus-
toms duty or anything," he said.
"We see them every day 'pop-
ping' (riding on one wheel) in
the streets and very little seems
to be done to stop them.
"Police say they don't want to
chase trailbikers because of the
danger to other road-users, but
the time to get them is when
they are parked." he said.
He also mentioned the 50 or
so trailbikes that use New Prov-
idence as a racetrack every Sun-
day evening.
"These people tow their girl-
friends on the back of these
machines with no helmets or
anything." he said.
"It is time to enforce the law
on the streets. Many of these
hikers are also into drugs and
guns.
"Clamping down on them
would, in addition to everything
else. be an excellent source of
crime intelligence."

much needed bulletproof vests
for police officers on Randnd
Bahama.
A fundraiser will be held dur-
ing Royal Bahamas Police

observed from June 30 to July 5.
Rotarian James Sarles said
the club hopes to raise enough
money to purchase 75 vests at
its Rib Fest on July 5 at the Sea-
horse Plaza Shopping Centre.
He said it is worthwhile cause
as police officers put their lies
on the line to serve and protect
the community, despite a short-
age of vests. "As you are aw are.

Marcus Gouthro, 12, Rasheed
Robinson, 14, and Ouinn Brown,
15, will travel to Washington from
June 15 to July 18 to receive
hands-on instructions Irom some
of the best Jazz artists and teach-
ers in the world.
The boys attend the Orches-
tral School of Music and have
won numerous solo awards at the
National Arts Festival, which is
hosted by the Ministry of Educa-
tion.
Former music educator
Reynold Robinson, owner and
instructor of the Orchestral
School of Music, said the boys
are the top of their class and were
chosen to represent the Bahamas.
He said the experience they
will receive in Washington will
allow them to become successful,
well-rounded artists.
"They will be exposed to and
will interact with successful
recording artist Winton Marcellas
and other working musicians.
This should be a rich and enlight-
ening experience for the boys
because they are all classically
trained and Jazz would be new
to them, adding to their diversi-
ty." said Mr Robinson.
He said music is very impor-
tant for the development of well
rounded students.
However. Mr Robinson stated

that tihe standard ol "musician-
ship" in the lihanias is generally
low. lie also said that the level
p1 music participation in the
Bahamas is very wide and very
shallow.

tral School of Music, and its piano
and voice instructors Rose Car-
son, and Paula Laplant, set inter-
national standards for its students.

student of Lucaya International
School, plays the alto saxophone
and the French horn. He has
attended the Orchestral School
of Music for five years and has
won the solo wind class for pri-
mary schools in the Bahamas

UWI programme's board

pledges to educate young

Bahamians on legal issues '


NEWL.Y elected student board officers of
the Ilniversitv of The West Indies (IUWI)
LLB programme have pledged to educate
young Bahamians on legal issues, such as
same sex marriage and legal gambling, and
the ramifications thereof.
Law students of the UW1 LLB pro-
gramme, offered at the College of The
Bahamas (COB), recently held successful
election of officers at the Bahamas Tourism
Training Centre facility on John F Kennedy
Drive.
The newly appointed executive board
begins its work in earnest at the commence-
ment of the school year 2008-2009, which
gets underway in September.
Headed by third-year students president
Antoine Thompson and vice-president
Toneika Russell the student board has out-
lined an ambitious agenda, which includes
among other things, enhancing the students'
experience through participation, meaning-
ful, personal as well as professional devel-
opment schemes, and vigorous pursuit of
academic excellence by means of improved
study groups and peer tutoring conferences.

Goals
The student board has also outlined its
goals of encouraging student participation
in the wider Bahamian community through
the facilitation of public discourse on topical
challenges facing society, such as same sex
marriages, the potential advent and ramifi-
cations of lawful gaming locally, human
rights concerns and why it appears impossi-
ble to execute convicted murderers in the
Bahamas.
The student board hopes that such forums
will also help to develop a greater sense of
patriotic duty in the many young aspiring
attorneys that pass through the programme.
"Far too many of our young people don't
seem to appreciate how fortunate we are to
be living in a place like the Bahamas and it is
our intention to show them," said newly
elected student board president Mr Thomp-
son.
Moreover, the law society will seek the
support of local UWI alumnus, many of
whom have gone on to hold positions of
prominence in the legal fraternity as they
have established very respectable reputa-
tions at home and abroad.
Other members of the executive board
include Krvstle Saunders, secretary: Wilfred


HBain, lreasurer;s T'ameika lhompson, public
relations officer; Kareen lliggins, parlia-
mnentarian, and Darren lH infield, advisor.
One of the first orders of business for the
new board was to pay a courtesy call on the
local programme director, Professor Michael
Stevenson. Next on their schedule is a
planned visit to the president of COB,
Janyne Hodder.

A HOOK of paintings Iby
French artist and wife of Sir Scan
Connery, Lady Micheline Roque-
brune-Connery, will be auctioned
at the Big Screen Art Scene this
month.
Sir Sean and Lady Connery set-
tled in Lyford Cay nearly 30 years
ago, and the Bahamas has not
only become their beloved home,
but also a source of inspiration
for her art.
Lady Connery, who will turn
80 this year, taught herself to
paint at the age of 23. She has
since become a successful por-
trait painter, and enjoys painting
the water, still life subjects, and
more surreal subjects.
"Because I have had no ego
about the paintings I have been
very free to do whatever I want-
ed," Lady Connery said.
"Many people who see my
paintings say it is extremely real-
istic, but it is surrealistic really.
"The last painting 1 sold to
Nicolas Cage is of a hand holding


an eye it is very surrealistic."
Around 50 of Lady Connery's
pictures are compiled in two pub-
lications entitled 'Journey in
Colour' and 'Reflection'.
The art compilations inspired a
piece of music by world-famous
composer Vangelis, and a record-
ing of the piece, along with Sir
Sean's reading of C P Cavafy's
poem Ithaka, accompanies the
book.
All of the books, sold for $200
or more, generate funds for char-
ities around the world.
Although this donation will go
towards the D'Aguilar Art Foun-
dation chosen by BIFF, all other
books sold in the Bahamas raise
money for Lady Connery's cho-
sen charity, the Bahamas Asso-
ciation for the Physically Disabled
(BAPD).
Lady Connery has donated
thousands of dollars to BAPD
over the years to help provide
free day care and schooling to
disabled children at the BAPI)
centre in Dolphin Drive, olf JFK
Drive in Nassau.
Lady Connery said: "1 have
donated to them ever since I
started to sell my books in 2001.
"I think it's a wonderful chari-
ty. It is very, very deserving
because they have no support, so
I do as much as I can."
SThe Connerys made the
Bahamas their home in 1983 and
Lady Connery says the light, the
water and beauty of the country
has inspired her art.
She added: "If it was up to my
husband we would not move from
here ever. He loves the Bahamas.
the Bahamians, the way of life."
Regretfully, the couple will not
attend the Big Screen Art Scene
as they will be at the Edinburgh
Film Festival in Scotland where
Sir Scan will promote his new
book, 'Being a Scot."
Lady Connery said: "It is a very

fascinating book. It is quite seri-
ous, not a juicy autobiography,
but a lile story told through his-
tory, a little bit of everything.
"lie was extremely poor when
he was a little boy, his family was
very, very dirty poor. And he
came out of it. It is quite some-

tor, said: "We are excited to

community of artists of all
kinds, collaborating under a
Bahamian cultural umbrella.

to stick with this winning for-
mat which is a non-traditional
auction and celebration show-
cased at the lovely Popop stu-
dios owned by John Cox."
Participating artists include
Jackson Burnside, Bernard
Petit. Margot Bethel and
Toby Lunn.

Shooting our


way of life


T ilHE recent shooting
and stabbing on
Cable Beach and Paradise
Island may be the shock treat-
ment we need to make us real-
ize that our way of life is
under threat and time is run-
ning out for us to defend
against that threat.
The defence must be mul-
tifaceted because since there is
no single cause of the crime
wave, there therefore is no sin-
gle simple solution.
The long term solutions
involve improving our schools
and promoting sound stable
family units.
These solutions need to be
kept on top of the national
agenda and should always
have bipartisan support. This
column will however try to
deal with some short term
solutions which are available
to us.
In a recent column I sug-
gested the introduction of a
National Identification C'ard, I
repeat that call. A great deal
of the criminal activity can be
connected to illegal immi-
grants.
A National I.D. will be


helpful in the control of illegal
immigration. Additionally
legislation which creates
penalties for anyone aiding
and abetting illegal immi-
grants would go a long way t(
controlling this plague.
Another short term solution
involves pressuring those
nations to the north and south
of us, which use our nation as
a highway for their illegal drug
trade, to provide the
financial, material and human
resources we need to fight this
invasion, exploitation and cot
ruption of our people and \way
of life.
There is no cocaine p o
duced in The Baihamas, There
are no guns ill;maufilctulired in
The Bahamas.
They are brought htere by
the new exploitCes and a;ided
by the anti-social membeilis of
our Bahamian tamilv.
I am not saying that we
would he an idyllic crime lice
tropical paradise it it ee tc not
for the international diu g
trade, but we would have Cless
crime, a smaller number olt
families damaged by addicted
members and a more pros-
perous. happier society.


This column doesn't claim
to have all the answers but the
arguments are compelling to
at least debate these two sug-
gestions.

Minister of Education. Youth.
Sports and Culture Carl
Bethel and other senior offi-
cials at the ministry to discuss
the next phase of the reading
and literacy project started by
former Ambassador John D
Rood at the Woodcock Pri-
mary School.
Mr Elmo representing
current Ambassador Ned
Siegel. who was unable to
attend the meeting said the
Embassy is thrilled to partner
with the Ministry of Educa-
tion in this initiative.
The Deputy Chief of Mis-
sion said that the programme
established at the Woodcock
Primary School is modeled
after a successful programme
that exists in the state of Flori-
da.

Volunteers
In the case of Woodcock
Primary. volunteers read to.
and engage children in reading
for one and a half hours, three
times a week at the school.
He said that officials of the
United States Embassy's wish
to establish a self-sustaining
comprehensive plan that
expands the Ambassador's
current reading programme
into a national reading and
mentoring initiative for pri-
mary schools throughout the
Bahamas.
Minister Bethel thanked the
officials for their offer of assis-
tance, stating that there have
been many attempts over the
years to address problems of
"gangesterism". functional
illiteracy and unemployed
youth in the Bahamas.
He added that any pro-
gramme that is implemented
will have to be modified to
ensure that it has Bahamian
content, and is relevant to our
society.
The minister said that this
will guarantee a greater level
of sustainability of the project.

Katherine Stewart-Gibson,
public affairs specialist at the
US Embassy. said that the
Woodcock Primary School
Reading Programme has
resulted in some successes.
She said that according to the
school's principal, the pro-
gramme has improved read-
ing levels and scores within
the school.

Celebrity
Students were also exposed
to celebrity readers such as
Olympic Gold medalist Deb-
bie Ferguson. world-renowned
actor Scan Connerv. business
professionals and permanent
secretaries from various min-
istries.
Elma Garraway. permanent
secretary in the Ministry Edu-
cation. noted that the initia-
tive has elements of the "Let's
Read Bahamas" programme.
w which \ as a national thrust to
encourage Bahamians to read.
One of the most significant
achievements of that pro-
gramme was the National Lit-
eracy L 'nit w which continues to
promote adult literacy in the
Bahamas.
Mrs Garraway said that
going forward, it would be
beneficial if the new initiative
could include some of the best
practices of the 'Let's Read
Bahamas Programme'.
The next step for Embassy
and Ministry of Education
officials is to form a commit-
tee that will work towards
establishing the programme
in all primary schools for the
2008S2009 school year. The
new programme vill focus on
involving more mentors from
the local community. family
literacy and support from the
business community.

Ministry of Lands and

Local Government receives

a budgetary increase


* By LLONELI
GILBERT


LA


MINISTER of Lands and
Local Government Sidney
Collie during his contribu-
tion to the 2008/2009 Bud-
get Debate said his ministry
has been allocated a total
sum of $40,231,534 for its
recurrent expenses for the
ensuing fiscal year.
Mr Collie said on Mon-
day that this is an increase
of approximately
$1.600,000.00 over the
2007/2008 recurrent alloca-
tion.
"Of that amount, the sum
of $38,110,266.00 will fund
the work of the Ministry
which includes the depart-
ments of Local Government
and co-operative develop-
ment, the consumer division
and the Mail Boat service."
He added that the
remainder will go to the
postal department.
Mr Collie also focused on
the growth of Credit
Unions in the country,
which he said is steady and
encouraging.
He said apart from the
very strong position of sav-
ings by Credit Unions
among the registered credit
union, school credit unions
are also growing.
"I am encouraged." Mr
Collie said, "by the growth
of the industry which start-
ed some 30 years ago with
initial investment of less
than $100.00, by the teach-
ers and salaried workers co-
operative credit union.
"The total savings and
investment of the Credit
Union League now boast a
portfolio of well over $200
million."
The minister noted how-
ever that while credit
unions in the country have
experienced an amassing
growth, co-operatives have
seen abysmal decline.
"The once vibrant farm-
ing co-ops of Mayaguana
and the very exciting fishing
co-op of South Andros
among others have all dis-


appeared from the regis-
trar."
lie said during the
upcoming year, the depart-
ment's mandate shall be to
find innovative ways to
once again ignite the inter-
est of fishing and farming
co-ops throughout the
country.
"We will collaborate with
and foster renewed rela-
tionships with the Ministry
of Agriculture and Marine
Resources for a way for-
ward in this regard."
He explained that the
department has ongoing
relationships with the Inter-
American Development
Bank, the Caribbean Devel-
opment Bank and the
('aribbean Credit Union
Association.
Mr Collie said these bod-
ies can provide the depart-
ment with technical assis-
tance, training and on-going
advice.

.,.. date F-ancis l-riend front Giand
rdr Bahnama, but ahead of fourth
W/ 0^ place candidate yron Sinmall
aller all the votes, of whlch
there were believed to be jusl
under 2,500, were counted.

tlo please the members. the
members have shown that I'm
the choice. 1 intend to work
with the government as best I
can and I intend to fight for my
teachers also and to make sure
their rights and privileges are
protected."

from this dav forward we would
be able to move towards gel-
ling the union back together "

Officers are investigating the incident but are not classi-

me and silence me from
speaking the truth about what
is going on in this country,"
he said. Mr Miller called the
trial a complete waste of time,
stating that there were far
more serious cases to be dealt
with.
Mr Miller claimed that
numerous lies had been con-
cocted to silence him. He
recalled that when the PLP
amne to power in 2002 he was
kicked out of his office at
ZNS.
"I am a victim of the politi-
cal machinations that go on in
this country. GEMS is a polit-
ical hot potato," he said.
Miller told the court that 40
days before the 2007 general
election he was "unceremoni-
ously" pulled off the airwaves.
Miller, who seemed to be
speaking his mind rather than
from a written statement,
firmly stated that he swears
to the dogmas of no master.
Mr Miller also claimed
GEMS CEO Debbie Bartlett
had conspired to beat him out
of a $2 million media contract
with the government of Turks
and Caicos.
Mr Miller told the court
how he had been approached
by Ms Bartlett to help estab-
lish the GEMS radio station.
He stated that he had signed a
$300,000 contract with GEMS.
"I never saw the first
$100,000," he said. "The only
money-making ticket they had
was the Darold Miller Show,"
he told the court.
He said he was supposed to

receive $300 per show, 25 per
cent of all revenue the show
generated, an annual $55,000,
as well as commission from
the sales he was able to con-
tract from the show. Mr Miller
claimed that his show made
$10,(tX) four days after GEMS
went on air.
Mr Miller also told the
court that there was a lesbian
agenda in the conspiracy
against him. He recalled that
gay rights activist Erin Greene
had approached him about
promoting a gay channel on
is show. Miller said that he
told her he would not do it.
Miller firmly stated yesterday
that he would never promote
"sissyism" on his show. He
noted that four days after
turning down Ms Greene the
allegations of sexual harass-
ment arose.
Mr Miller also pointed to
some of the lies he claimed
were stated in court. In one
instance Mr Miller noted that
Sancheska Brown. a GEMS
employee, had testified that
he used to lock reporters in
the newsroom.
Mr Miller said this was
false. He noted that if some-
one was locked in the building
it would not only be a viola-
tion of the fire codes but also
human rights.
"I am an advocate for
human rights." Mr Miller said.
Michael Bethel, a former
accounts executive with
GEMS. was Mr Miller's first
and only witness to take the
stand yesterday.
Mr Bethel said he had lived
with Miller at his Millennium
Gardens residence for most of
the time he had been


employed with GEMS.
He said at that time local
musician Elon Moxey and the
virtual complainant also
resided there. He told the
court that he and Miller spent
most of his time at GEMS
radio station until the small
hours of the morning. Bethel
said the virtual complainant
never told him about any sex-
ual impropriety by Miller. He
said she was always treated
like a lady in the house.
During questioning by pros-
ecutor Calvin Seymour, Mr
Bethel admitted that he and
Miller had worked at ZNS
together and that Miller had
secured his job at GEMS.
When asked if he ever went
to strip joints with Mr Miller,
Bethel said "No." When
asked if he ever went out
drinking with the accused, Mr
Miller stood up in court and
shouted "Objection."
Bethel said Miller would
have a few drinks when he
was out. He admitted that Mr
Miller smoked cigarettes but
denied that he had ever seen
him smoke a joint, a question
to which Mr Miller again rose
and shouted "Objection."
Mr Bethel said he never saw
Miller smoke anything other
than cigarettes. Seymour also
suggested that because Miller
had given him a place to stay,
he had an allegiance to him
and was attempting a cover-
up. Bethel denied that he was
lyin?
Mr Miller's attorney
Michael Kemp made an appli-
cation yesterday o have the
virtuAlcompta1ant' recalled
to the witness staod. The case
was adjourned to June 19.

bles reduced up to 50 per
cent when grocery shop-
ping this week.
Prices on staple items
like cereals and macaroni
will be drastically lowered
as well, Mr Roberts said.
"One scenario that I did,
we were looking at (pric-
ing) an item like lettuce, a
popular item. And that 12
per cent saving on duty was
going to amount to a 9 per
cent reduction in the retail
price and plus the 10 per
cent reduction in times like
this, is no joke.
"Now of course frozen
vegetables, they (had a
duty rate of) 32 per cent,
and now they're complete-
ly free. I told our buyers to
hunt some fruit and veg-
etable specials and let's
special them 'duty-free'
and then especially if we
can find some specials,
another 10 15 per cent off,
we may have a 50 per cent
savings on frozen vegeta-
bles."
"Cereal used to be 35
(per cent) plus 2 (per cent),
now its free, that's 37 less
that's going to be (added)
so let's say that would be at
least a 25 per cent saving
on the retail price. Some-
thing that (normally) sells'
for $4 can sell for $3, so
that's pretty good.
"A staple item like mac-
aroni is also duty-free so
there is going to be a dras-
tic drop there-expect
close to 8 to 10 per cent
saving on a staple item
(which) is pretty good.
Some (food) items are
going to start appearing
without this duty as early
as this week. By the end of
this month everything
should be all new imports
and all the prices down."
During his.presentatiop.,
of the 2008/2009 budg&L.
Prime Minster Hubert
Ingraham said government
would be eliminating taxes
on 160 food items includ-
ing a number of fruits, veg-
etables, whole wheat
bread, oats and cereals -
in order to make healthy
foods more affordable for
Bahamians.
Detractors of this
announcement were con-
cerned retailers would
keep profits gained from
the duty reduction instead
of passing them onto con-
sumers. However Mr
Roberts said fierce com-
petition among food-stores
would drive prices down.
"As merchants import
and they find their landed
costs lower they're going
to put their regular mark-
up on the new landed costs
and that's going to reduce
the prices accordingly just
as government intended.
(And) when they see our
specials and when they see
our low prices, then they
will have to (lower prices
accordingly).
"I don't think anybody
would try and profit from
this, competition just
wouldn't allow it. Compe-

A LONG-TAILED macaque monkey looks for fish in a river in Lesan, East Kalimantan, Indonesia, in
Sept. 2007. Long-tailed macaque monkeys have a reputation for knowing how to find food, whether it

LONG-TAILED macaque
monkeys have a reputation for
S-knowing how to find food

according to tihe Associated

Now, researchers say they

Groups of long-tailed
macaques were observed four
times over the past eight years
scooping up small fish with their
hands and eating them along
rivers in East Kalimantan and

said he was "heartened" to see

such details can offer insight


into tile "comlplexity of these
animals."
"It \was not surprising to me
because they are very adap-

them with an opportunity to get

their best to get it."

Restaurant owner calling for





moratorium on new licences


* By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Business Reporter
he proprietor of
a local Chinese
take-out restau-
rant is calling on
,Tthe governmental
to place a moratorium on issu-
ing new business licences for
those types of restaurants.
claiming the overall increase
in the cost of business and a
saturation of the market is
making it difficult to remain
competitive.


The owner of the restaurant,
located in eastern New Provi-
dence, asked to remain anony-
mous, but said restaurants all
over the country are struggling
greatly to absorb the huge
increase in supply costs without
having to pass those costs on to
the consumer.
Ile said most people can't
afford to buy his lunch specials,
which are priced at $5.50, and
instead purchase his $3.75 stu-
dent special.
"I do not want to have to
increase my prices, which
already my customers are say-


ing they cannot afford, but all
around me competition is
,pl incin,, up and they have
lower prices than me, but with
prices the way they are, you
have to wonder what they are
offering."
The o\'wnic said (hinese
restlallan s have been badly
affected by tlccnt rice short-
.IL'.O which hie claimed led to
hoarding andd ia iiutL increase
in prices.
"We do not use parboiled
rice, we use the Asian long-
grain which, as you know,
there was a hbi shortage of


about a month and a half .p i
and that led to a situation
where persons were lii.11 dig
rice and because of the prob-
leins prices for a 00-pound
I.lg of rice went from around
$ 1i to at the highest around
$54."
Furthermore, he said the
cost of looking oil, which he
buys in 35 pound packages, h.isL
increased from $15-18 a hulk
to $38. His cooking gas bill has,
he said, increased from $1,2()0-
$1,311ii to $1,5(ll-$l1,Mtll a
month.
"Also, if you look at the


price of meat, pork chops for
example went up from $1.30 a
pound to $1.75. Remember, we
are using thousands of pounds
a week, and we are operating
on razor-thin margins."
Additionally, he bemoaned
the proposed increase in work
permit fees, which in his case
for a Chinese cook is currently
lHe noted that all of these
factors have made it very diffi-
cult to maintain profits.
"I would seriously advise
anyone interested in getting
into the restaurant business to


think very carefully about it,"
he added.
He said that while a mora-
torium would not change the
skyrocketing cost of doing
business, it might allow peo-
ple a chance to set their prices
to reflect cost and not have to
worry about a concentration
of restaurants undermining
margins.

THE TRIBUNE


To cut rising fuel costs,


* By MICHELINE
MAYNARD
c.2008 New York Times
News Service
TIlH nation's airlines are
scrutinizing every step of their
operations, from the tarmac to
the sky, and from the nose to
the tail of their planes, search-
ing for new \wav to cut their
soaring fuel bills.
They are power-washing jet
engines more often to get rid
of grime, carrying less water
for the bathroom faucets and
toilets, and icpl.icing passen-
ger seats with lighter models.
The financial pain of higher
fuel prices is particularly acute
for airlines because it is their
single biggest expense. Eight
years ago, 15 per cent of the
price of an airplane ticket went
to pay for jet fuel; now, it is 40
per cent, according to the Air


Transport Association, the
industry's trade group.
If prices stay where they are,
the nation's airlines will col-
lectively spend $61.2 billion
this year on jet fuel -- more
than five times what they spent
in 2'12, when travel fell
sharply after the September
2(X)1 attacks.
Every increase in the price
of fuel, already up 84 per cent
compared with last year,
increases the pressure on the
carriers, which pump about
7,(XX) gallons into a Boeing 737
and as much as 60,000 gallons
into the bigger 747 jet.
Airlines are raising fares and
adding .urch.rges and fees as
fast as they can, but at a certain
point, passengers stay home.
That's why the carriers are

Although airlines have tried
fuel-saving measures for years,
they attacked the problem with
renewed urgency when oil
passed $100 a barrel this year.
Now, all airlines are urging
employees to suggest ways,
large and small, to cut fuel use.
Carriers save the most by
parking aging aircraft, of
course, and many are already
doing so. Northwest is retiring
DC-9 jets it has used for
decades; American is ground-
ing some of its MD-80s, while
United is parking six 747 jets.
Each generation of aircraft is
more efficient. At Northwest,


the Airbus A330 long-range
jets use 38 percent less fuel
than the DC-lOs they replaced,
while the Airbus A319 medi-
um-range planes are 27 per
cent more efficient than lD)('-9s,
said Tim Mc(iraw, Northwest-
's director of corporate envi-
ronmental and safety pro-
grammes.
But even specks of dirt are
considered culprits. American
and Southwest are washing a
handful of jet engines each
night, a process that used to
happen only during thorough
maintenance overhauls. South-
west figures it has already
saved $1.6 million in fuel costs
since April by reducing the
drag caused by dirt and debris.
American, for one, expects
to save roughly $330.7 million
this year, or about 3.5 per cent
on a total fuel bill that will
approach $9.26 billion.
A number of airlines are fly-


ing their planes somewhat
slower in order to save fuel
480 miles per hour, for cxian-
ple, instead ofl the usual cruis
ing speed of 500 n11lh.
Five years ago, Delta esti-
mated thie travel time for flying
between Los Angeles and
Atlanta at four hours and 12
minutes; now it is four hours
and I8 minutes at a lower
speed. (The airline has not
changed its timetable, which
sets aside about four and a half
hours for the trip, including
taxiing time.)
Up in the cockpit, Delta is
studying whether it is feasible
to divide the heavy pilot man-
uals required on each flight
between the captain and first
officer, so pilots are not toting
duplicate sets of five or six
books that each weigh about
a pound and a half.
Eventually, the airline wants
to eliminate printed manuals
and display the iiionlmation on(
computer screens, a step the
government would have to
approve.
"That's very much where we
want to go," said Gary
Edwards, )elta's director of
flight control. "That's the wave
of the future."
Passengers may notice other
changes. Airlines including
Delta are swapping heavier
seats for models weighing
about five pounds less.


American is irplacing its
bulky drink cars with ones
that are 17 pounds lighter. ]'lhe
airline said thai move would
help save 1.9 million gallons of
luel a year, on top of the 96
million gallons it is saving
through other nieanls.
Water is another target.
Northwest is putting 25 per
cent less water for bathroom
faucets and toilets on its inter-
national flights, McGraw said.
Most planes had been return-
ing from long flights with their
tanks half full, an unneeded
expense given that water
weighs 8.3 pounds a gallon and
a gallon of jet fuel weighs 6.8
pounds.
"l[vcry 25 pounds we
remove, we save $440,000 a
year," McGraw said.
Airlines also are trying to
cut fuel co(nslumpl)tilon at tie air-


port. Most now run their
planes' electrical systems at the
gale by plugging them into out-
lets, rather than running the
engines.
Many jets now taxi out to
the runway on one engine, sav-
ing full power until in position
for takeoff.
Some airlines are changing
their landing patterns for cer-
tain flights. On red-eye trips
into Cincinnati and Atlanta,
some Delta jets descend steadi-
ly to the airport, rather than
following the usual step pat-
tern, which uses more fuel,
when airports are busiest.'
"We're really fine-tuning to
get to that sweet spot of effi-
ciency," said Edlwards of Delta.
Northwest has studied every-
lhing from providing cus-
tomers with packing tips to
serving soda from two-liter


plastic botlles rather than undJ
vidual c;is, lut it decided lihil
customers would balk at lial
idea.
"'1 hey like I I: ii n.
McGraw said. "'I hey want the
can."

As it relates to cruise devel-
opment, Mr Grant said they
have allocated $3,450,000 in
cruise line incentives to
encourage lines to position
their ships in the Bahamas.
Further, he said that some
$5,874,000 will be spent to
compensate for the competi-
tive edge the country previ-
ously had as a result of low-
fare carriers.
"We are faced with the real-
ity of spending considerable
funds on airlift support, in


order to encourage more
routes and maintain existing
routes."
Further
Mr Grant further said the
ministry has also included
$10,()0,000 in marketing sub-
ventions for the 2t(JS/2WO bud-
get.
"It should be noted that
these sums are spent without
the input of the Ministry of
Tourism and, as such, we are
not able to influence the
degree to which their spend-


ing directly supports our key
consumer messages. In the
next fiscal period, the following
have been allocated:
Kerzner $4,000,000, Isle of
Capri $2,000,000 and Har-
court $4,(00,0(XJ.
Mr Grant also pointed out
that total visitors fell by 2.9 per
cent to 4.6 million, and not five
million, hotel sector perfor-
mance indicators showed
robust growth of 8.4 per cent in
room revenue to an estimated
$403 million supported partly
by addition of high-end hotel
rooms to the outstanding stock.

AP Business Writer
NEW YtORK (AP) Wall

vating concerns that inflation
may lead the world's central
banks to raise interest rates.
The Dow Jones industrial
average fell more than 150
points.
Investors have been uneasy
about oil prices, which surged
above $134 a barrel on the


New York Mercantile
exchange after dropping a dlay
earlier. living breached $139
a barrel last week, record-high
crude has increasingly posed
both an inflationary risk and
a threat to growth.
Energy l)epartmnent data on
oil inventories are scheduled
to be released at 10:35 a.m.
Eastern time. The weekly
report frequently offers clues
about 1US energy demand,
which Wall Street has been
trying to gauge as consumers


adjust their budgets to accomr
niodate $4-a-gallon gasoline.
(Other data Wednesday that
could tell investors how Aiier
cans are faring financially is

Book, which provides readings
on the IJS economy by region.
In midmorning trading, the
Dow Jones industrial average
fell 151.36, or 1.23 per cent, to

Report: cruise industry 'well-


positioned for continued


growth and success'


FROM paIge IB

summers, the CLIA revealed
that the Bahamas is still one
of the preferred choices for a
cruise destination.
According to the study.
released yesterday, Alaska, the
Bahamas, Hawaii, Europe and
the Mediterranean/Greek
islands are the top choices.
Some 43 per cent of partici-
pants of the study name the
Caribbean as their cruise des-
tination of choice.
The study revealed that,
despite economic uncertainty
and rising fuel costs, people
are still interested in going on
cruises


CLIA's report indicates that
33.7 million adults from the
target market are considering
taking a cruise vacation within
the next three years.
Most survey respondents said
it is "-delinite" or "probable"
that they will go on a cruise in
the very near future.
In 2007, 9.57 million Ameri-
can citizens took a cruise.
The report further showed that
the general profile of the 20t08
cruise vacationer is upscale a
market which the Bahamas is
increasingly seeking to tap
into.
Most cruise travellers are ilso
educated, with 69 per cent
holding a college degree, and
the average aigc of I cruleC


vacationer is 46 years.
The 2(X)8 report reinforces pre-
vious studies in "painting a pic-
ture of a healthy, in-demand
cruise industry fuelled by vaca-
tioners with broader travel
interests than non-cruisers and
whose satisfaction with cruising
is based on perceived and
realized value," the CLIA said.
The survey also shows that
travel agents remain a very
important part of the industry,
as travellers perceive them to
be offering the best service in
vacation and planning.
A total of 2,426 US residents
over the age of 25 were inter-
viewed online for the study
between March and April,
200).

S._ WITHOUT question, men
should take their fatherly
example from God. Besides
being the creator of mankind,
our Heavenly Father is an avail-
able confidante, a provider for
His children, a rock to lean on in
times of trouble, a foundation to
build on, a source of strength,
and He even leaves an inheri-
tance for His children. He's the
perfect example of fatherhood.

Upon election to that board,
Bernard immediately made his pres-
ence felt. Being deputy chairman of
tle congregattional board was not
simply about the position for
Bcrnaid. tie c would often say as he
functiolnd as deputy chairman, "It's
;abut s'cr\IL. I in here to serve. I
thank God that I can serve.'
More than words. Bernard brought
all of his spirituality management
skills and leadership acumen to bear
as he functioned as deputy chairman.
Bernard is the son of a Baptist pas-
tir. lHis father. the late Reverend
IIlkin John F-rguson. was the found-

The Tribune


FATHER and Mrs
Knowles are pic-
tured with family
and assisting
remembers of the
clergy of St
George s at the
conclusion of the
9am mass.
which began his
25th anniversary
celebrations.


Father Knowles celebrates 25 years of priesthood


4 '.. IN what can only be
0 described as a week-
Send of celebration,
Anglicans gathered from
around the diocese to join
with Father Kingsley Knowles
as he celebrated his 25th
anniversary of ordination to
the priesthood and his 26th
year in sacred ministry.
Excitement surrounding the celehra-
tion began to build on Friday past as
family members and fnends flew in
from the other islands of the Bahamas
and from the unitedd States to partici-
pate in this great "family reunion.
The 7am and 9am services at St
George's on Sunday marked the begin-
ning of the festivities as Fr Knowlesc ccl-
ebrated and preached at both services.
In his sermon, he reflected on his
years of service in the ministry of the
Lord, paying particular attention to his
early years as a priest in ('at Island and
Long Island.
"God has brought us a mighty long
way." he resounded, as shouts of
"Amen" and "Hallelujah" were
exclaimed by the congregation. "He
provided moon to light my path when I
drove the darks roads of ('at Island. He
provided light when there was no elec-
tricity in Long Island. It was God and
God alone," he said.
Later, family members and friends
gathered at Holy Trinity Activity
Centre, Stapeldon Gardens, for a
luncheon and for fellowship.
Reflections of Fr Knowles' ministry
were given by a number of persons
including his mentor, Archdeacon
Etienne Bowleg, Fr Norman
Lightbourne and a number of attendees
at the function.
In his remarks, Archdeacon Bowleg

the occasion from her home in Newv

It was here that persons were able to

ing his new, but broken down car to
school. The luncheon came to a conclu-
sion with remarks hv Fr Knowles who
thanked his family, friends and parish
ioners for attending the weekend's
activities.

CELEBRATIONS AT ST GEORGES

of the participants in that ordination

In his, sermclon. Arc hdeacon Moss
recalled the da\i that he and Fr

ment. Many das he Nwould ha\e to

to attend chapel. said Archdeacon
Moss. as members of the congregation
laughed.
"'You could count on Fr Kno\wles to
be ready, dressed and clear minded at
all times. llus he has carried through
his work in ministry. He has supported
all diocesan initiatives and always seeks
to support both his ordained colleagues
and lay persons in ministry."
Music for the two hour service
included the anthems "God and God
Alone" and Handel's "Hallelujah
Chorus" by the Choirs of St George's
with guest singers from Hlighgrove
Singers under the direction of Adrian
Archer. Guest soloist \was Kandra
Knowles. the teenage daughter of Fr
Knowles who sang one of Fr Knowles'
favourite songs. "O(ne Day At A
Time."


At the conclusion of the service
greetings were brought b\ the bishop
criadjutor on behalf of Archbishop
(;omen/ and the diocese. wvho thanked
I r Knmoles for his sen ice to the church
and went further and thanked his fami-
Is as well.
'Too often we only see the priest."
Bishop Bo\d said. 'but we owe a great
deal to the spouses and family of the
priest who sacrifice a great deal to
allow the pnest to be all that he or she
need, to be to their congregations and
for that I sa\ thank you to Mrs Knowles
and her children on behalf of us all."
In his remarks. Bishop Thompson
recalled Fr Knowles young days as a
lad in St Barnabas Church where he
and his family grew up. "I believe that
Fr Knowv les is probably among that last
breed of traditional priests who went
\where they were sent. they and their
fanilics." said the Bishop.
'Fr Kno\wles gladly went to Cat
islandd at a time when there \was no run-
ning w ater or paved roads or electricity.
lHe did this with no fudging because he
was willing to service God's people
\;wherever they were. This he is to be
commended for."
As the service concluded Fr Knowles
seemed lost for words as he tried to
thank the many persons who have sup-
ported him in his ministry over the
years, including his brothers and sisters
in ordained ministry. many of whom
were robed and unrobed at the service.
and those who assisted with the
anniversar- activities.
A reception on the grounds of the
church's rectory ended the evening's
activities and the weekend of celebra-
tion.

sermon of Archdeacon Moss can be found

George's at

NINIVIDL'ALS near the

remember the days when the
pastor of the church was
referred to as the father of the
church. Persons in their 3')s,
and younger. \would not have
experienced this or other won-
derful nlemnories or experiences
of the church of bygone da.s,
which are almost impossible to
accurately capture and express
on paper.
From m\ perspective, the
pastor saw his calling and role as
a completely self-sacrificing
one. and his total existence
revolved around ensuring that
all of the needs of the members
he led were met, unconditional-
ly. This is a subject on which I
speak because I have first-hand
knowledge of it.

A daddy or father


DUE to our overwhelmingly religious and tradi-
tional mind-set, it is most fitting to say, "llappy
Father's Day."
> Tradition: Every year during this same time, a large
part of the western world celebrates June 15 as
Father's Day.
Religious: Father's Day Sunday is the day when just about every
church service is centred on the fathers of our communities and the
nation at large.
I. This is when and where religious leaders prepare their servic-


es with thefathers in mind.
2. The Men's Choir and the
opportunity to strut their stuff.


I do aure that we should
gisc our fathers their due
and this I will always do.
Fathers are real men cwho step
up to the plate both spiritually
and naturally in support and
defence of their families, and if
the truth he told we've got hut ;a
handful of real men Icft in this
country.v

How are fathers measuring up?


FROM page 26
Ministries (the men's ministry of
Bahamas Faith Ministries), agrees that
the responsibility is on the father to know
his position. And, while in many cases the
father simply does not want to be
involved, Dr Major noted that in most
instances, the father simply does not
know what his role ought to be.
When we look at Bahamian society.
one must really think about whether
fathers are even essential seeing that
women have been doing well all along.
Not every fatherless child will end up a
criminal, and in fact, single Bahamian
mothers have come to produce some out-
standing Bahamian citizens. So, is this
idea of the absentee father truly the root
of all social ills as many people believe?
Dr Major believes that while for
decades single mothers have raised pro-
ductive citizens, and though women have
done their best with what they had, the
presence of the father is still very neces-
sary. In many cases where the mothers
have reared children without men, some-
where down the line usually when that
child is an adult he begins to realise the
disadvantage of not having a holistic
approach to rearing.
"The boys and the girls they cope, but
the majority of them are still missing
something. And you know when it shows
up? When they get married. It shows up
in their relationships.
"So on the surface, yes they do well.
They don't kill or steal, and you don't
hear about them committing crimes. They
go away to school and get educated, yes.
They generally look well adjusted, but it
shows up later on," Dr Major said, point-
ing out that a lot of the marriages or rela-
tiohships that fail today can be traced to
childhood and the relationships that each
or one spouse had...or didn't have...with
their fathers.


In many cases they [the father] made a
mistake and left out of shame, and in
other cases, Dr Major noted, the child
may have been pushed away by the par-
ent or used as a pawn by a disgruntled
mother. Some father's fight through it and
know their rights, while others simply
give up and don't try.
"They are yearning deep inside to be
able to rekindle that relationship. but a
lot of them just don't know how to...But
the longer you wait to repair that rela-
tionship. the worse it gets."
According to Dr Major. BFM celebrat-
ed National Men's Day last week in order
to make a special day for men. He added.
however, that the traditional Father's
Day. Sunday. June 15. is a wonderful
opportunity to recognize fathers and to
help men to understand their role as God
set it out.
"Every man is destined to be a father
and God has given all of us the strength.
the willingness and the raw materials to
be able to function in our fatherly role.
We just have to get the information. We
have to seek out a place where we can get
the information, and that's in the Bible.
the word of God," Dr Major told Tribune
Religion.

A FATIRS MISSION
One Bahamian father who refused to
give up his rights as a father is Clever
Duncombe who, due to his struggle, is
now an activist for the rights of the father.
Through raising awareness, Mr
Duncombe has helped to pass the Family
& Child Protection Act which speaks to
the rights of Bahamian fathers among
other issues. Without this legislation.
father's would be relegated to the posi-
tion of "part-time parent" even if they
really wanted to be involved.
According to Mr Duncombe, it is that
divisiveness that has created the parental
alienation syndrome, which is a major


problem in the Bahamas. This is a situa-
tion where the custodial parent brain-
washes a child with negative thoughts
about the father.
Father's can avoid this however, by get-
ting involved with their children early on
in their lives by attending PTA meetings
at the school, and making themselves vis-
ible to their child by attending activities
like sports events for example.
"But for fathers who will wait until the
child is in adolescence to penetrate their
minds in terms of wanting the child to see
a different you or the real you. it is that
much more difficult. And in some
instances, that relationship is gone forev-
er," Mr Duncombe said, adding that he
has come across many people who
express thoughts that they could care less
about their fathers and would not want a
relationship usually as a result of nega-
tive views that have been fed to them as
children.
"It is a vicious cycle that we are up
against," he said.
While his organisation 'Bahamian
Fathers for Children Everywhere' has
been successful in having the Family &
Child Protection .Act passed in parlia-
ment, Mr Duncombe is disappointed that
the law has yet to be applied in society.
Still, he is grateful that through the work
of his organisation, there is an ongoing
public dialogue about the rights of fathers
in this country.
For fathers who are invited to be in
their child's life despite a break-up with
the mother, Mr Duncombe said that he
cannot fathom why they would squander
the opportunity.

Minister Eric Fox, president of Teen

Leaving a


spiritual heritage


-' j
& legacy

N By BISHOP FRANKLIN FERGUSON

ONLY those who have truly experienced the love of
a father know what it feels like when he is gone. The
father's love, care and wisdom creates within the
heart of his children an atmosphere and environment that
lingers with the child through his or her life.


Males, men and sperm donors can be
found everywhere but true fathers are
more difficult to identify especially in
today's society where a large percent-
age of the fathers of our land serve in
an absentee capacity.
Fatherhood, in its truest essence, is
being gravely threatened and its true
nature and mission are being distorted
and disregarded by the behaviour and
nature of many. Fathers ought to be
trail blazers, role models, motivating


their children and serving as a positive
influence that is felt everywhere and
especially in their own home among
their own children.
When one becomes a father he
should be proud to fulfill his role and
thankful to God for the privilege to
serve in one of the most important
roles ever. Fathers not only have the
opportunity to impact the present but
also through their conduct and decision
making leave behind a spiritual her-


itage and a legacy that will be felt,
remembered and revered for genera-
tions.
One such individual who met these
criteria was a native Exumian who
served his God and country well.
One hundred years ago. Pembroke E
Ferguson. the oldest son of Samuel A
and Emerita Ferguson, was born in
Farmers Hill, Exuma. He became the
husband of Olive Edith. father of nine,
school principal, minister of religion.
justice of the peace, sub-post master.
community leader, entrepreneur. brass
band conductor, friend and philanthro-
pist. His life and ministry positively
impacted many and his passing left a
vacuum in our hearts.
For more than 42 years he invested
his life in the youth of our nation as an
educator. TIhe islands of New
Providence. Crooked Island. San
Salvador and Exuma were the benefici-
aries of his God given wisdom and tal-
ent and out of these came some of the
most productive and God fearing citi-
zens this country has known who have
and are still serving in various profes-
sions.
He was a good man and father who
truly left his footprints on the sands of
time. His was a life well lived, his con-
tributions to society evenly spread and
the legacy he has left is worthy of emu-

abuse and school violence during national conference

SEEKING to bridge the gap in families

ference, held in Grand Bahama.
